Top      A WITCHES CURSE (Early)  3>1>4>5>2>6

 

1

Do you ever wish that you could turn the clock back

now that you know you went down a wrong track long time ago.

(Footprints in the melted snow)

 

2

Wish that you were here to share this moment with me

so we could plan to set up home in Disney Land.

(Castles in the sand)

 

3

Take another look at the way we're living

money's number one and there's no time for giving love.

 

4

Throw away the key to your box of treasures

cause what you really need is precious peace of mind

 

5

Wake up from a dream that left your life in limbo

there’s gonna come a time when love begins to flow again

 

6

All the riches of the universe

cruel and bitter sweet like a witches curse

 

7

Day dreams of you, can’t believe this is true

sleepless nights in my lonely room

Thinking of the love I cherished

crying for the treasure that perished, thinking of you

 

8

Since you’ ve been gone life has turned upside down

Suddenly the sky came crashing to the ground

It hit with the force of a mega ton bang

Hearts  in smithereens then the church bells rang

You went for your very last ride

 

Top       Winds of Change  (A)

 

I can feel the wind of change blowing through town

Isn't it strange how the people love their merry go round

They love their merry go round

Watch the politicians squabble on TV

Read the daily papers twisting history

It's a professional game to keep the voter satisfied.

 

Brainwashed kids,  media hype

Copycat pirates,  dangerous types

Scare the people,  don't let the pressure drop

Wreck the future,  stay at the top

Wasted people,  living like sheep stuck in the mud,10 foot deep

 

Cut education,  exploit the situation

Simply put the blame on the fight against inflation

Invent new taxes, double the rent

If you can't afford it go and live in a tent.

Wasted people,  living like sheep stuck in the mud,10 foot deep

 

The guilty go free,  the innocent get framed

Too many bent cops,  justice is nothing but a game

Lawyers make the profit,  their fees are sky high

Witnesses get bribed,  victim’s families cry

Cause the wheels turn much too slow,  the rusty wheels of justice

When you saw her in a crowded street

She knocked you right off your feet

There was no way to disguise

She had that magic sparkle in her eyes

 

Suddenly you discovered

You  were made for each other

There was no way to disguise

She had that magic sparkle in her eyes

 

Dm13          G              Fm            Bm

She had that something that made you feel good

E7                    G                 A

She hit you with her best shot in the heart

 

The girl came with nothing but a smile on her face

brightened up your nights like a rainbow from somewhere in space

There was no way to disguise

She had that magic sparkle in her big blue eyes

When you saw her in a crowded street

She knocked you right off your feet

There was no way to disguise

She had that magic sparkle in her eyes

She told you something that made you feel so good

She hit you with her best shot in the heart

Suddenly you discovered your sex crazy lover

Had frozen and walked out on you

Tender dreams you once shared, precious feelings you cared for

They belonged to history

When I saw you in a crowded street

You knocked me right off my feet

There was no way to disguise

You had that magic sparkle in your eyes

You gave me something that I haven’t forgot

You hit me with your best shot in the heart

When I finally discovered all my sex crazy lovers

Were just like the rest of my fear weather friends

Dreams we once shared, precious feelings we cared for

They’re no longer part of my life

 

Top     B4 U RUN Sooner or later  29/12/01

 

It’s no crime  - standing still

give me some time

time to kill

 

Keep on running  - like a racehorse in the dark

before you run

you better learn to walk

 

Love affairs - going bust

temptations everywhere

try a lethal dose of lust

 

Trust - it melts away like ice-cream

like fading tattoos on your skin

when the fairytale ends

lovers don’t even stay friends

 

Sparkle  like a diamond  - circle like a shark

keep on running

like a racehorse in the dark

Looking thru my window

I can see 4 miles & miles

My mind is wandering thru the past recapturing cries & smiles

And when I think of U

& the things that made me feel complete

Love so true

 

Birds sing in the morning

It makes me feel reassured

that mother nature has been hard at work

to get my troubles cured

and if I feel the need 2 shed some tears 4 U 2day

it’s just because that love of yours will never go away

Waiting for a sign to light up

in the darkest hour

When the storm is over

and the rain clouds disappear

Gotta make it to the hilltop

I can feel the sun is near

 

Top    Memory  

 

No matter where I go

I find places that remind me

Of the time we spent together

Special times,  wish they never had to end

Everywhere I look I see things that bring back memories of you

********

You’re gone forever – that seems mad

But I’m glad that in my thoughts

You’re never far away, I can feel you in my heart today

No matter where I go ……….

You (Bm) are like  the bright lights (F#m) up in the sky   (why/cry/by/try, buy)

Bm Ten zillion miles a(F#m)way

Bm I can hear you calling, oh I (amaj – F#m) wish I could fly F#m

E7 Take me there one day

Everywhere I look I see things that bring back memories of you

Top    DEEP CUT  

The love that you can’t have is the strongest

Hurts the deepest, lasts the longest

If I can’t have her  - I don’t want nobody else

I’d rather be here on my own and go thru hell

 

She vanished from my life – we never said good bye

In the madness of  a moment  –  she blew it all away

She threw all caution to the wind and plunged me into

darkness that I’m in since she’s been gone

 

I hate the way I feel without that special  loving care

Lonely days and sleepless nights just cause she’s not there

if I had just one wish I would make her reappear

put the smile back on my face and a grin from ear to ear

 

The love that you can’t have is the strongest

Hurts the deepest, lasts the longest

 

The love that you can’t have………

 

(First Person)

 

If I can’t have you  - I don’t want nobody else

I’d rather be here on my own and go thru hell

 

You vanished from my life – we never said good bye

In the madness of  a moment  –  we blew it all away

You threw all caution to the wind and plunged me into darkness that

I’m in since you’ve been gone

 

 

Top    MEMORY LANE 

 

Going down memory lane

follow the sunshine and the rain

that’s fallen thru the  years that have passed  in a flash

 

Since I  (first) came here to be by your side

its been a long and bumpy ride

I’ve been to heaven and I’ve been to hell and back again

 

If I could live another million years

they would still not wash away the tears

that  I cried a long  time ago when you left

 

Top    FAIRYTALE PRINCESS 1.NOV.99

 

Share my loneliness

Fairytale princess

Come and rescue me

Bring me happiness

With your sweet caress

Like the deep blue sea

Somewhere in my mind

Mysteries unwind

Set my spirit free

 

Lift me up

From the depth of despair

Be my lover

Show me you care

Take away my blues

Put on your dancing shoes

Wrap your arms around me

Feel my heart beat like a drum

Dm7               g7

Hold me tight and light my fire

Come and make me feel safe and warm

Stay the night lift me higher and higher

Shelter me from the storm

Looking to the stars,

Scattered hopes and confusion,

Waiting for a sign to light up in the darkest hour

 

Top    The grass is always greener over there 1.NOV99                            

 

DON’T  TRY TO FOOL ME

WITH  YOUR SMILE

I CAN SEE THRU THAT

I CAN FEEL THE GUILE

U RIPPED  MY HEART OPEN

AND NOW U PRETEND

THAT U DIDN’T MEAN IT

TO BE THE BITTER END

BUT THERE IS NO WAY BACK

TO WHERE WE ONCE WERE

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER

OVER THERE

 

DON’T TRY TO CHANGE ME

WITH YOUR STYLE

I DON’T NEED ALL THAT

KIND OF RANK AND FILE

I JUST WANNA BE TRUE

TO WHAT I BELIEVE

THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE

THERE’S SO MUCH TO FORGIVE

 

DESPERATION  KEEPS DRAGGING ME DOWN

IT’S PURE FRUSTRATION LIVING IN THIS BIG OLD TOWN

I FEEL SO WASTED GIVING EVERYTHING I’VE GOT

EVERY TIME I GET UP I GET SHOT TO PIECES.

 

Top     LOVE IS DOWN THE DRAIN

 

LOOK AT THE WAY OUR LIVES BEEN GOING

UP AND DOWN LIKE YOYOS,   NOW THE CRACKS ARE SHOWING

LOVE IS DOWN THE DRAIN,     THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL

 

I’M GONNA FIND MYSELF A BRAND-NEW LOVER

HELP ME FIND MY WAY AND WHEN I RECOVER

FROM THIS CRAZY SITUATION

MAYBE WE’LL BE FRIENDS AGAIN.

 

I’M LOOKING AT THE  OCEAN WAVES

WONDERING HOW FAR AWAY YOU REALLY ARE

DISTANCE HAS NO MEANING TEENAGE YEARS SPENT DREAMING

BE CAREFUL YOU DON’T DREAM TO FAST

LIVE YOUR LIFE IN HARMONY, WORSHIP FRIENDS AND FAMILY

DON’T FORGET TO MAKE THE GOOD TIMES LAST

 

 

Top    KITES

 

When we were in love   everything was paradise

High like two kites above in the clear blue sky

Looking back now that it’s all over

Good intentions didn’t get me far

Maybe love was just not strong enough

To reach that distant star

Or could it be that we were just too young

To persevere when all the odds were wrong

 

 

Now that I’m all alone        this crazy world seems sad and blue

I wish YOU knew               the rocky roads    I’m stepping thru

To find a new lover              isn’ t all that easy

keep on pushing  my fears away  (washing my tears away)

meet the girls who flaunt the same old stuff

I just look at them every day

or is it me who doesn’t feel the need

to be sincere when all the odds are wrong

 

 

Top    Memory

  

No matter where i go, i find places that remind me

Of the time we spent together

Happy times that we wished would never end

Everywhere i look i see things that bring back memories of you

I get sad you’re gone forever but i’m glad that in my thoughts

You’re never far away, i can feel you in my heart today

No matter where i go ……….

Looking to the stars scattered hopes and confusion

Waiting for a sign to light up in the darkest hour

 

 

Top   Only in the movies

 

It never happens like this in the movies

Only dreams are made that way

You wake up in the morning and think :

Why could it not last a little longer

 

Top    Love engine New Verses

 

Love is like a diamond

Brings a sparkle to your life

But if you loose the shine

It’s gonna cut you like a knife

So You better keep it polished

Like on the very first day

Nothing’s gonna save you

If you let it slip away

(If you throw it all away)

but if it goes downhill and you can tell it’s  gonna crash ?

 

 

Keep it polished, let it shine
