Track Name: Don't You Try & Pin Me Down
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
Track Name: Strangers In The Night
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
Track Name: Back To Basics
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....
Track Name: I Will Cry No More For 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
Track Name: Dangerous Games (to play)
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
Track Name: I Saw Thru The Moon
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
Track Name: Photographic (aka The Bouncing Song)
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
Track Name: Is It My Arms That You Miss?
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
Track Name: Everytime I Think Of You
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
Track Name: Where You Going To?
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
Track Name: Sally & Jimmy
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
Track Name: Running Tonight
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
Track Name: I'm Not Listening
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
Track Name: Invisible
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
