Coming Up For Air

Don’t you think it’s a crazy situation when you can’t find yourself despite all the looking and you’ve gotta getaway, breakaway, escape to somewhere? When the walls are closing in and there’s no reason why You just gotta getaway, runaway, get to some clean air CHORUS Coming up for air, coming up for air Let me have some room ‘cos I’m gasping for some air Coming up for air, coming up for air Gotta make some room ‘cos I’m coming up for air Coming up for air, coming up for air Let me have some room so I can come up for some air Coming up for air, coming up for air Gotta make some room ‘cos I’m coming up for air It’s all too much to bear ’cos we’re living in a world that doesn’t care Gotta getaway, runaway, escape to somewhere Drowning in a sea of information gasping for breath, head is spinning Gotta getaway, breakaway, get to some clean air CHORUS Cars and jets pumping out pollution there doesn't seem to be any solution so I gotta getaway, breakaway, escape to somewhere Maybe an island in the ocean away from the crowds all the distractions gotta getaway, runaway, get to some clean air CHORUS

You say that he loves you; it’s not love to me Just the same old situation, filled with pain and jealousy It’s a funny love when he treats you like he does And that’s a shame CHORUS Cos if you ain’t got love, you’ve got nothing at all If you ain’t got love, you’ve got nothing at all If you ain’t got love, you’ve got nothing at all If you ain’t got love, you’ve got nothing at all You make excuses, for the way that he behaves Justify the games he plays by taking all the blame But it’s a funny love when he treats you like he does And that’s a shame CHORUS

I saw her standing by the door All alone of that I’m sure I thought I’d risk it take a chance Walk on over ask her to dance CHORUS But she closed her eyes and breathed a heavy sigh Said man’s heart is made of wood If I took you by the hand Would it end up being no good? I tried to say we’re not all the same But she dismissed me with a wave I said I’d like to try and make you laugh She said you already have don’t you know that I watched you dance? CHORUS I said I’m not the fortune telling kind But I know love is hard to find Sometimes you have to hide your pain away Pick up the pieces start to love again CHORUS (x2)

She came to me in the silence of the night Caressed my lips with her fingertips Naked she climbed into my bed I willingly followed where she led CHORUS No guilt, no secrets, no hidden past It’s just a story of lust no questions asked A memory of innocence long since gone It’s just a story of lust no questions asked, no questions Morning came but with the darkness she had gone The pillows wear the mem’ry of her perfume Twisted sheets lay where they fell Their own story they can tell CHORUS I recall her face like a photograph The swell of her breast as we entwined Idle talk as the night-time fled In each others arms the passion spent CHORUS

Halcyon Days 04:15
Do you remember the summers, when the sun always shone? Do you ever wonder, where those days have gone? We used to sit by the river, in the shade of the trees Holding hands we’d talk of the future and what we were going to be In those halcyon days Do you remember the games that we used to play? You were a princess and I was your willing slave We had adventures until the sun fell from the sky Never had a worry ‘cos we knew who was on our side In those halcyon days But the years slipped by We all grew up – Drifted apart Knew it could never be the same again Looking back it’s like a photograph etched on the mind Oh! And I remember our first fleeting kiss Was in those halcyon days Do you remember the summers, when the sun always shone? Do you sometimes wonder, where those days have gone? The future seemed distant, so far away Now the future’s here but I can still remember Those halcyon days, oh those halcyon days

I see you sitting there - so near but out of reach We know the rules - to the games we play We mustn't touch - we mustn't kiss 'n' tell Silent messages - with our eyes we send CHORUS I never meant for this to happen I never meant to fall in love I knew it from the very first time If I gave my heart it wouldn't be enough We keep locked away - passions burning Go our separate ways - so no-one knows That what you feel for me - is what I feel for you Against the surging tide - we have to swim CHORUS Darkest secrets - we have to hide away We must not show the world - too much love And now we're sitting here - so near but out of reach Confined by the rules - to this game we play CHORUS
