STREETS OF SHAME

Verse 1
And as I walk
The streets of shame
Where the law is bought
And loveís a game
I see your face
In every crowd
I hear your voice
Soft not loud
You come to me
Though youíre gone
Tell me I must carry on
The streets of shame

Verse 2
And as I hear
The voice of shame
On every street
On every train
I see the words
Shout out to me
Weíre the law
Youíre not free
I hear you whisper
In my ear
Just be brave
Weíll conquer fear
On the streets of shame

And sex and sea
Sun and sand
And sex and sea

Verse 2
Sun and sand
And sex and sea
Wonít you please
Dance with me
Dance with me

Sun and sand
And sex and sea

Like heaven to me
Cut me off
And leave me here
Iíll rough it in
The sex and beer

TAKE ME THERE AND SET ME FREE

I've always wanted
A girl like you
Someone who does
The things you do
But it aint fair
Oh can't you see
Take me there
Set me free


I've always needed
Love at night
Someone like you
To hold me tight
Can't get my share
What I see
Take me there
Set me free

Now you're here
Know what to do
Have no fear
I'm with you
I want my share
Give it to me
Take me there
Set me free

TEARS FOR THE DREAM THAT DIED

You ask me why I'm crying
You ask me to explain
How can I ever tell you
'Bout the slow evolving pain
I know you can't see
I know you haven't cried
Can't you see I'm crying
Tears for the dream that died

I see you by my bedside
I know you can't understand
You were always a dream to me
But I was only a one night stand
And now you are going to leave me
You don't know how I cried
Then you ask me why I call this
Tears for the dream that died

For all the things I said

Has grown day by day
For so long now

And now sheís gone
And Iím alone
I cry myself to sleep
Through nights so long

Where she has gone to hide
Wonít you please go
And say to her
Iím sorry that I lied

THE DAYS OF OLD ARE OVER

Verse 1
Listen hard
To me
If you want to understand
Things
Are changing
All over this land
Those who
Have power
Have all grown old
We know
They have
Been sold for gold
But nights
Our friend
Hide what we do
We wonít
Take more
Of this stuff from you
The days of old are over

Verse 2
Hold me
Tonight
Whilst lifeís wheel turns
Come now
With me
Watch the old world burn
We see
The mess
Theyíve made of it all
Come now
With me
And help it to fall
I see
The light
Of life in your eye
Fight now
Fight hard
Weíre too young to die
The days of old are over
