Track Name: Hello Hello Hello
Hello Hello Hello


Hello, hello, hello
Can anybody hear me?
Can you see the warning signs are burning?
There’s a lesson no one’s learning

Hello, hello, hello
They’re listenin’ on the phone lines
Does anybody mind them checkin’ in?
All they wanna know is where you’ve been
Can you remember where you’ve been?

It’s not what you did
It’s not what you did
It’s what you didn’t do
Didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do yet

Come on, come on, come on
You can’t put out the fire
So you just retire to your bed-room
And put on your favourite Dylan costume

Come on, come on, come on
You’re holding up a peace sign
But will that be enough to turn the high-tide
When there’s a battle ragin’ outside
Are you on the inside?

It’s not what you did
It’s not what you did
It’s what you didn’t do
Didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do yet

It’s not what you did
It’s not what you did
It’s what you didn’t do
Didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do yet

We got a lot of anger
We got a lot of fear
Who will do the fighting when they’re no more volunteers?
Will you be the one?
The One, Ohhh!!!
Track Name: One Step Back And Two Steps Forward
One Step Back and Two Steps Forward


Nice try, we did it again
Started a fire and somebody put out the flame
Why, why, it’s always the same
You’re out in the sun, then here comes the rain
It’s happenin’ again

But hey, it’s not too late
It’s not too late to start all over again
You take one step back and two steps forward

Don’t wait, don’t hesitate
Life is time and you’ve got the clock that’s tickin’
Stop playin’ stupid game
Trying to push you, pushing you outta the way
But not today, oh

But hey, it’s not too late
It’s not too late to start all over again
You take one step back and two steps forward

But hey, don’t you wait
Don’t you wait start all over again
You take one step back and two steps forward

Time, sometimes disappears
You’re paralyzed with fear
And you feel like you’re the only one alive
No one comes around
Your life is broken down
And it’s up to you to fix it, here and now

But hey, it’s not too late
It’s not too late to start all over again
You take one step back and two steps forward

But hey, don’t you wait
Don’t you wait to start all over again
You take one step back and two steps forward
Track Name: You And Me Tonight
You and Me Tonight


The curtain falls the lights are shining down on you
The speed of sound will blow away your mind
Time could ever take away
What we’re holding now

I can see the twinkling stars in your eyes
And both your hands are reaching to the sky
This moment is forever
And time is standing still

Tonight, the feeling’s right
We’ll keep it alive
Till the morning light
Stick with me all night
Only you and me, you and me tonight

How can a song play on and stay so close to you
Hold on tight and never let it go
I feel I’ve known you all my life
Though we’ve never met before

Tonight, all the feeling’s right
We’ll keep it alive
Till the morning light
Stick with me all night
Only you and me, you and me tonight

Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
You and me tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

The whole world’s turning
The night keeps on burning
And we’ll keep on dreamin’ out loud, yeah!

Tonight, all the feeling’s right
We’ll keep it alive
Till the morning light
Stick with me all night
Only you and me, you and me tonight

Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
You and me tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
You and me tonight
Track Name: Love Ain't A Four Letter Word
Love Ain’t A Four Letter Word


Money can’t buy it, the price is too high
It will cost you every beat of your heart if you try
You’re pickin’ up the pieces and ask yourself why
How can it be?

Love ain’t a four letter word
No it’s never meant to be that easy
Love ain’t a four letter word
Not for you and not for me

We all know the feeling, we know what it means
Can’t find it in a book, or in a magazine
That magical moment, your eyes touchin’ mine
Goin’ to a place, somewhere in time
And now I see, yeah

Love ain’t a four letter word
No it’s never meant to be that easy
Love ain’t a four letter word
Not for you not for me
Love ain’t a word
To describe this feeling
Love ain’t a word
La, la, la ahhh!

Love ain’t a four letter word
Not what you expect it to be, to be
To explain what has happened to you and me

Love ain’t a four letter
Love ain’t a four letter
Love ain’t a four letter word
No use in tryin’ to explain it, no, no
Love ain’t a four letter word
Love ain’t a four letter word
No use in tryin` to fake it, no, no
No it’s more than you are seeing
Track Name: More Than I Can Be
More than I can be


No, I’ll never ask you to read my mind
And what you think is wrong for me might just be right
So shut up and go, the answer is no
Don’t pin no ribbons on me
I don’t need your OK or an invitation to your party

You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be
You want me to change my point of view, but that ain’t me
You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be
Just leave me alone, I’m keeping it real, real for me

All in all the long haul will end up last
Riding on a shooting star sounds crazy cool, but ends too fast
And then you’re gone, what went wrong in your plastic world
Don’t wanna hear the sound of the same old songs you played before

You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be
You want me to change my point of view, but that’s not me
You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be
Just leave me alone, I’m keeping it real, real for me

Why try to read between the lines
They’re just words that you couldn’t find
Look in the mirror and see just who you are now
Your too far gone, stay outta my song, I’m movin’ on
You’re too far gone; you got it all wrong, I’m movin on

You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be
You want me to change my point of view, but that’s not me
You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be
Say I’m a fool
Say I’m a fool
Say I’m a fool
You’re playin’ it cool but we’re as through as through can be
Track Name: Crime
Crime


We’re sittin' on a time bomb
In a new atomic age
Everybody’s got to have one for a rainy day

Talking revolution
Do you see the signs?
You can buy a ticket into heaven
But can you spare a dime?

Isn’t it a crime?
Isn’t it a crime?
We’re runnin’ outta time
Runnin’ outta time

You say it’s evolution
Crawlin’ from the slime
You sayin’ the solution’s too confusin’, musta been designed
If you gotta million good excuses, better get in line

Isn’t it a crime?
Isn’t it a crime?
We’re runnin’ outta time
Runnin’ outta time
Isn’t it a crime?
Isn’t it a crime?
We’re runnin’ outta time
Runnin’ outta time

We’re born to love
We learn to hate
We’re born to love
We learn to hate

Isn’t it a crime?
Isn’t it a crime?
We’re runnin’ outta time
Runnin’ outta time
Isn’t it a crime?
Isn’t it a crime?
We’re runnin’ outta time
Runnin’ outta time

Do we really mind?
Do we really mind?
Track Name: High As The Moon
High as the Moon


When your work is done
The battle’s never won
And if you fall apart
Just keep it in your heart

Sometimes it’s just o.k.
To step out of your day

Get as high as the moon
And fly from your room
And look down on your world
And see how small it all can be

Who could hurt you now?
You’re original, somehow
So paint your restless life
With colours of the night

Nothing’s in your way
Step out of your day

Get as high as the moon
And fly from your room
And look down on your world
And see how small it all can be

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh,
How small it all can be
Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh

Nothing’s in your way
Just step out of your day

Get as high as the moon
And fly, fly from your room
And look down on your world
And see how small we all can be

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh
Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh

How small we all can be
How small we all can be
High, high as the moon
High, high as the moon
High, high as the moon
Track Name: We'll Get There
We’ll Get There


We’ll get there when we get there
And we’ll know when we know

We’re crawling down the sidewalks
Of this black’n’white old town
We’re shadows in the sunshine
Ain’t gonna turn the music down

And every step we take will keep us
Going on and on and on
And every move we make will lead us
To the place where we belong

We’ll get there when we get there
And we’ll know when we know
We’ll get there when we get there
We’ve got a long, long way to go

Yeah, life’s a competition
On your mark, get ready, go
Don’t turn it into fiction, baby
This ain’t no one man show, no

And every step we take will keep us
Going on and on and on
And every move we make, the next turn off
Maybe the yellow brick road, yeah

We’re marching on, can’t stop this song

We’ll get there when we get there
And we’ll know when we know
We’ll get there when we get there
We’ve got a long, long way to go

We’ve gotta long, long way to go
Fasten your seatbelt, here we go
Round’n’round’n’round we go
Rocking all around the globe
Round’n’round’n’round we go
Down a never ending road
Track Name: Down To You
Down To You


Here comes the queen of all the wanna-bes
Watch her walk across the room
Now she’s dancing with the enemy
She’s just a girl who got too old, too fast, too soon

Now it all comes down to you
It all comes down to you
It all comes down to you

Life is one big ‘Do I know you?
I don’t think we’ve met before'
And now you find no one’s in line
To buy you drinks no more

Now it all comes down to you
It all comes down to you
Now it all comes down to you
It all comes down to you
No matter who you do

Down to youuuuuuuu
Down to youuuuuuuu
Down to youuuuuuuu
Down to youuuuuuuu

Now it all comes down to you
It all comes down to you
Now it all comes down to you
It all comes down to you
Now you’ll have to face the truth

Down to youuuuuuuu
Down to youuuuuuuu
Down to youuuuuuuu
Down to youuuuuuuu
Track Name: Wake Up
Wake Up


Time flies I’m riding on its wings again
It’s a nice ride, enjoying the view from here
Next stop is the top of the world
Closer to the sun
Am I the only one?
Watching you build bridges just to burn ‘em down

Wake up
No time for dreaming now, dreaming now
Wake up
The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now

I say, it’s time for you pay the bill
You say it’s time to take my sleeping pill
History’s gonna repeat
Knock you off your feet
But you keep building bridges just to burn ‘em down

Wake up
No time for dreaming now, dreaming now
Wake up
The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now

I just don’t know how anyone couldn’t see the dream was a lie

Wake up
No time for dreaming now, dreaming now
Wake up
The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now
Wake up
No time for dreaming now, dreaming now
Wake up
The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now
Track Name: I'm Raining
I’m Raining


I wanna steal your smile
And put it back on mine
Looking through your eyes
To a world that seemed so fine

I can hear your words
Sayin’ everything’s o.k.
But I’m forgettin’ to remember
To forget my yesterdays

Looks like I’m raining
I’m raining
Oooh

We built our love upon the sand
And covered it with lies
When the tide came rollin’ in
It washed away and died

I turned around and found myself
Shattered in my tears
Just me against the world again
A voice that no one hears

Looks like I’m raining
I’m raining
I’m raining
Raining, down on me

They say love is something that money cannot buy
If I could say just one thing, I’d paint it in the sky
Here we go, chasing sunshine, chasing sunshine, ehh!!

Bring back the sunshine

Looks like it’s raining
It’s raining
Raining
Looks like it’s raining

Down on me
Down on me
Down on me
