If you think you’ve lost your way And you’re missing all the action Baby stop and turn around Are you searching for the one The one that lights your fire And burns you like the sun.. What’s your destination… your destination, is love.. If the dream just can’t go on And you’re flying around in circles You just gotta put it down What’s your destination… your destination, is love.. Say that you want me… Say that you need me.. or it can’t go on Say that you need me Say that you’ll always be right next to me You’re the best for me… The music was so beautiful, the poetry so deep I search around and round again, for one or two to keep.

It's A Lie 04:27
In the middle of a dream when you’re somewhere in between, darkness and the morning light That’s the time when the answers to the questions Seem stranger than the fiction in your mind You say the older that you get, the better that you used to be, are you in the first flush of love? Well I believe your head is just a vessel for tales And taller stories that you sent out with the trash… A penny for your thoughts tonight… A penny for your thoughts tonight… It’s a Lie… It’s a Lie (x2) It’s easy to live… It’s easy to lie But did you know…. You can’t turn back time It’s easy to give… and it’s, easy to try You don’t have to harbour it, or carry it inside.

Comes down to what you need… You can be what you wanna be… Don’t’ lose your dignity… You come from quality…street Come baby dance with me… Lets make a memory I wanna hear you sing… Let go of everything He’s got the goods to make your troubles go away Emotions on a package holiday You’ll remember when the blues just went away Should’ve known they would be back again today You’re always on the other side of town That’s where the trouble’s going down They say a king is gonna lose his crown That’s something you wont be around This is the real life don’t you know This is no television show Maybe there’s something we don’t know Keep looking for ya even though You’re never gonna walk these streets again Never gonna feel the Summer rain Flying high above the losers as we meet Down here on Quality Street… One by one, the lights went out I watched as the last one disappeared.. so long without you now, it’s a little darker on Quality Street… ooh ooh….

We only got up to go for a ride down to Santa Monica Taking my girl she’s the best in the world You know you never get long enough Up with the boulevard blues… Or down on the pier with a penny to lose.. Southern California, I’m missing you…. We’re tuning back in to the dream… But the dream has gone We were hearing all kinds of things And we would sing along… But the frequency… has long gone Yeah the frequency…. has long gone.. Oh oh oh oh oh oh…. We fell in love back then Oh oh oh oh oh oh…. You take me back again This must be a special thing… We are together in…

Do you know where you are from? Do you know who you are? Do you see me from your blinkered view…? De-mystify… and bring clarity. Yeah I know about you Yeah I know I’ve got the proof Can you hear me now I’m coming through…? Shouting… A little louder. Ah ah ah ah.. it’s like I’m torn in two A little bit crazy, a little bit overdue I, I, I, I.. I cannot pretend to lie It’s making my…. Head spin. Oh… brother, are you listening…? What became of you…? And Oh… Sister… where have you been…? Time can be so cruel, Am I getting through to you? I woke up fighting again We were running round your home town It was chaos but I let it go, trying to write it all down

If I could have told you what the future may hold Would you do what you do…? Would you do what you do…? If I couldn’t give you another… melody… Would you do what you do…? Would you do what you do…? If I could have given you… anything more… Would you do what you do…? Would you do what you do…? If I could be with you maybe… you would know… Why you do what you do…? Why you do what you do…? You gifted me…. Oh so sweetly.. And you lifted me… But I still can’t feel it… One day we’ll miss you and… we’ll never know Would you do what you do…? Would you do what you do…?

Did you ever dream about being a movie star Just like a wannabe Hollywood We don’t want your house of cards to come tumbling down It’s much too much for your.. fragile soul Yes you are an Original Star… Yes you are…. You’re moving into new circles, you don’t have the time To think about what’s in the past, it’s done and left behind From the World Will Turn Without You To the way you Live This Life They can come and criticize, but it cannot be denied. Yes you are an Original Star… Yes you are…. All the signs have been there for a while… You should be coming home… You should be coming home… Yes you are an Original Star Yes you are….

I’m your late night DJ… welcome to the show Surrender everything to me tonight From the truckers on the highway to the inmates in the cell I’ll be in your head now… lets hope we get on well. Reaching to the lonely, the troubled and the sane Connecting any loose ends at the closing of the day So call me up from your town and request a song I need to know you’re out there… I need to carry on. Cos I am your dog star… Burning from afar Catch me in your arms. Blind are we who… cannot see you… and… Hang on every word you say…

There’s an old bench that sits by the river In the village where we used to play And a viaduct arches it over Like a guardian of brickwork and clay There’s cornfields and tractor lined meadows Intersected by footpaths for years And in the woodlands we used to get busy Making magical memories In the Summer we’d get lost on cider And sleep out all night in the fields Get up on those railway tunnels With the wind rushing up through the trees Say hello to the old town for me We first met in Dingle and kissed in Tralee You said we’d be married forever Ain’t it wonderful dreaming is free. Down the country lanes we’d be together On a bicycle not made for two With overgrown hedges and nettles It’s a wonder we ever got through We could ride your wild horses untethered Down the farm tracks and chalk pits you see For the twilight it went on forever Making magical memories In the pub there’s a snug in the corner And we’ve just enough money to be Together alone for an hour or so Til the bell rings and shatters the dream Drive the car to a spot in the darkness Park up and spark up the dream On the radio, singing to Heaven Nothing’s ever as good as it seems. Harlequin records on a bleak Saturday Punks on the wall by the… takeaway Rude boys and Goth girls and romantic hair Got to be seen, but be seen to not care Junkies all gather by the fountain to feed While lovers rehearse in the bus station, please! And the daylight gives in and the streetlights come on We could walk round once more but I’d rather, go home. So in the bus stop, in the rain, on a Sunday This notion it did arrest me Would I grow old like everyone else does Singing songs full of old memories So the concrete path led to the river And the river it led to the sea Then an aeroplane over the ocean Where a new life was waiting for me Now when I put on those nostalgic glasses It’s the same boy that’s still inside me And the daydream it runs on forever Making magical memories.
