I was here but now I’m there Passing through just like a ghost I never said I’d stay around So don’t you try and pin me down I’ll arrive but then I’ll go A quick goodbye a long hello You will get no more from me So don’t you try and pin me down CHORUS I never promised you a thing So don’t you try, don’t you try and pin me down I never said I’d stay around So don’t you try, don’t you try and pin me down Now you see me, now you don’t I’m moving on it ain’t a joke I never planned on hanging around So don’t you try and pin me down CHORUS

Strangers in the night exchanging glances Wondering in the night what were the chances We’d be sharing love before the night was through Something in your eyes was so exciting Something in your smile was so inviting Something in my heart told me I must have you CHORUS Strangers in the night two lonely people we were Strangers in the night up to the moment when we Said our first hello, little did we know Love was just a glance away A warm embracing dance away Ever since that night we’ve been together Lovers at first sight in love forever It turned out so right for strangers in the night CHORUS

Let me take you by the hand I'll try to help you understand I'll show you a place that time forgot Lose your chains, untie your knots They're calling this the scientific age But we're trapped inside their mental cage I've found my own Utopia I'll take you there it's not that far, we're going... CHORUS Back to basics, back to basics, right back Back to basics, back to basics Don't let them rule you - Don't let them fool you Don't let them rule you - Don't let them fool you again They condition you to take the blame For every mistake that they have made You've got the freedom to escape their ways You've got the ability, to take you....

I know it’s kind of late to call But I’ve got to tell you how I feel I wave a flag of truce ’though the battle carries on I close my eyes; I see your face But I’ll cry no more for you The words we spoke were said in haste Out of context out of place I wave the flag of truce ’though the battle rages on You believe we’ve said it all But I’ll cry no more for you Break I’ve had my share of not sleeping I’m not going there again Inside, for you, I feel nothing Where once was love; emptiness remain There’ll be no winners can’t you see Only wounded you and me Though I wave a flag of truce For you the battle carries on If I’m the loser I don’t care ‘cos I’ll cry no more for you I will cry no more for you I will cry no more for you I will cry no more for you

Looking out the window I see a train go past I try to see you on it, but it's going much to fast Then I think back to all the things you used to say to me like the times you said "I love you" and I could not agree 'cos they locked me in this cold room, threw the key away said that loving someone was a dangerous game to play They said I had delusions of grandeur all the time that loving someone like you was a dangerous state of mind And I could not convince them that loving wasn't wrong That I needed someone to whom I could belong Still they locked me in this cold room, threw the key away said that loving someone was a dangerous game to play said that loving someone was a dangerous game to play They never understood the feelings deep inside the feelings for each other which we couldn't hide And now I look across and they've done the same to you Said that loving me is what has made you blue then they locked us in this cold room, threw the key away said that loving someone was a dangerous game to play said that loving someone was a dangerous game to play said that loving someone was a dangerous game to play

I looked up, saw the moon Saw right through it, like I saw through you All your cheating, all your lies So tell me why do I cry now the love we've had has died? You played rough with my emotions Promised much delivered nothing You're looking out for number one So tell me why do I cry now the love we've had has died? CHORUS You say you love me but it don't show You use those same old lines that I know Never believed in consequences That one day, in your tears you'll drown One day, I won't be around 'cos I saw right through you like I saw through the moon I saw right through you like I saw through the moon I saw through the moon You make rules then you break them There's no compassion in one like you You use emotions like tools of torture So tell me why do I cry now the love we've had has died? 'cos I only see you when you need me You never bother any other time I don't believe a thing you're saying Tell me why do I cry now the love we've had has died CHORUS

A white house, a white room, the program of today Light on, switch on, your eyes are far away The map represents you and the tape is your voice Follow all along you ‘til you recognise the choice I take pictures; Photographic pictures Bright lights; Dark room Bright lights; Dark room I said I’d write a letter but I never have the time And I’m looking to the day I mesmerise the light The years I spent just thinking of a moment we both knew The seconds passed like an empty room It seems it can’t be soon I take pictures; Photographic pictures Bright lights; Dark room Bright lights; Dark room

Last night as I was sleeping, you were in my head A memory long buried, that I thought was dead You came back to haunt me in the midnight hour There's so much I want to say, but where should I start? CHORUS So what are you doing now and if you don’t mind me asking who are you with? Are they treating you alright or in the dark of night is it my arms that you miss? Today as I was walking, on my own through town I thought I saw you standing there but a stranger turned around I felt my heart switch to overload Memories play out their lies, now our love is cold CHORUS Last night as I was sleeping, you were in my bed A thousand faded memories that we, both thought were dead Tears of crystal rolled down your cheeks I don't recall what was said, to make you cry CHORUS
9.
I’ve read all the books Know what I’m supposed to do Tell me why I fall apart Everytime I think of you Inside I feel so strange There’s this exquisite pain I know I can’t explain it’s Everytime I think of you CHORUS Everytime I think of you my heart stops beating Everytime I think of you my heart stops beating Though I see you everyday I don’t know what to say You steal my breath away Everytime I think of you They say Love is blind I think love’s unkind Inside I feel so strange Everytime I think of you CHORUS (x2) I play old love songs To try and understand what’s going on Why I feel the way I do Everytime I think of you I’ve heard it said love’s a game But love’s an exquisite pain That burns me up inside Everytime I think of you

I saw a man walking down the street wearing all these fancy clothes he stood out from the crowd looked kinda out of place Wore a hat pulled low to just above the eyes had an enigmatic smile upon his face and I said: CHORUS "Hey! Where you going to?" I said: "Hey there mister, where you going to?" "Hey! Where you going to?" "Hey there mister, where you going to?" He turned and looked at me with pale eyes I thought he wouldn't speak there was something strange about him that I couldn't quite work out He said: "It isn't where I'm going to but where I'm coming from that really is the key." But I said: CHORUS

I remember Sally Brown, said she couldn’t sleep at night She had a tale of demons, dancing in the pale moonlight No-one believed her, it was said she was quite insane But now Sally’s laughing, ‘cos the demons have come to play Sally had a boyfriend, Jimmy something was his name He tried to warn us, that the demons were on their way No-one believed him, they said he was a dangerous man But now we’re all relying, we’re relying on Jimmy’s plan CHORUS Sally & Jimmy saw the future they knew what was going on Sally & Jimmy knew the end was coming and they tried to warn us all Jimmy had his plan, but only Sally could understand Now she holds his hand as the fight the demons dancing in the moonlight Sally saw the future; Jimmy said it scared them both to death They could see the demons and knew we had no defence None of us believed them, we said they were quite insane But now we understand ‘cos, the demons have come to play CHORUS
12.
She is an angel, but she bears the scars Of thinking love would protect her, be her magic charm She wears violent bruises upon her skin Knows that leaving him is the only way the only way to win CHORUS 'cos she's running tonight from the hurt and the shame Running tonight escaping the pain Running tonight hopes it will work out right she said she's running, running tonight She wakes in the morning still wrapped in his arms He begs her forgiveness she says it's his final chance She wears violent bruises upon her skin Knows that leaving him is the only way the only way to win CHORUS She is an angel, living in hell He said he'd love her and protect her She wears violent bruises upon her skin Says that leaving him is the only way, the only way to win CHORUS
13.
You don't hear what I have to say To you the world's black & white there's no grey You always see conspiracy So I'm not listening to you I'm not listening to you You are a strange one it's gotta be said All those theories filling your head You don't believe that Elvis is dead So I'm not listening to you I'm not listening to you CHORUS I think that you believe the world is flat That you are right and we are wrong and that is that Einstein made it up as he went along had everybody fooled That none of this exists, it's all a myth that one day we'll see through So I'm not listening to you I'm not listening to you You don't believe a man walked on the moon You claim it was filmed in a studio room Part of some great American hoax So I'm not listening to you I'm not listening to you The CIA killed JFK From a grassy hill on that November day 'cos they didn't like the Kennedy dream So I'm not listening to you I'm not listening to you CHORUS

Invisible 04:40
Don’t you worry – Don’t you lose any sleep The visions that haunt you – They won’t keep It’s all too distant – So far away A passing image – In the news today There’s no food and babies die Distended bellies, hollow eyes We once said that we cared Now they're Invisible Another war, another land Children dying, who gives a damn? A fleeting passage on the news Soon becomes invisible Invisible
