CITY STREETS

Verse 1
When I walk through
The city streets
So quiet and so bare
A slight and subtle
Scent of you
Brightens through the air

(Chorus)
But you are not there
You are not there

Verse 2
When I walk through
A crowded place
So noisy and so loud
I think I catch
A glimpse of face
Through the searching crowd

(Chorus)

Verse 3
When I go to
My empty bed
Frightened and alone
I see on the pillow
Your lovely head
But I am alone

(Chorus)

COME TONIGHT

Verse 1
I see you flyiní
Flyiní free
I hear you calliní
Calliní to me
I hear you singiní
Singiní to me
Come tonight
Come to me

Verse 2
I know your footstep
In the hall
I think I love you
Give it all
I see you laughiní
Loud and free
Come tonight
Come to me

Verse 3
I smell your perfume
On the air
I hear you talkiní
Loviní to share
I see your spirit
Flyiní free
Come tonight
Come to me

COWBOY OF DREAMS

You ride through my night
You come to my bed
You win all the fights
You have in my head
You always are right
You win all the scenes
You are to me
My cowboy of dreams

Always you're alone
Always you're on time
Always I want
You to be mine
Always the one
Who steals all the scenes
You are to me
My cowboy of dreams

Where can I find you
Where do you hide
Where can I go
To go for the ride
Where is the love
That is what it seems
Where are you now
My cowboy of dreams

CRASH AND BURN

Verse 1
There was a time
When you could hurt me
There was a time
When you could laugh in my face
There was a time
When I couldnít see
There was a time
When you werenít disgraced
Now itís your turn
To crash and burn

Verse 2
There was a time
When I loved you
There was a time
You put me in my place
There was a time
You know itís true
There was a time
You couldnít look me in the face
But now itís your turn
To crash and burn

Verse 3
There came a time
When you needed me
There came a time
When you wanted my love
There came a time
When I was free
There came a time
I didnít want your love
And now itís your turn
To crash and burn

CYCLING TO THE SUNSET ON THE STREETS OF SAIGON

Verse 1
I think of all the lovely boys
I see them standing here
Waving as I pass them by
Hiding bitter tears
What became of their dreams
Where have their young lives gone
Nothing is quite what it seems
Cycling to the sunset on the streets of Saigon

Verse 2
I see their smiling faces
But I know that they are ghosts
Ghosts of another time
The ghosts we see the most
And in the eyes I see the tears
That always drive me on
Every day I see my fears
Cycling to the sunset on the streets of Saigon

Verse 3
I know the years have passed by
But the ghosts they are the same
Always asking asking why
They all call out my name
What can I do to ease their pain
After so many years so long
Cycling and crying in the rain
Cycling to the sunset on the streets of Saigon

DANCING ROUND THE BONFIRE OF MY LOVE

Verse 1
I met her on holiday
Walking in the past
A piece of heaven standing there
Could I make it last
All my life Iíve looked for her
Seen her in my dreams
And I knew her straight away
From the old love scenes

Verse 2
There and then I felt for her
Felt head over heels
It seems Iíd forgotten how
Hard love pains can feel
She came, she stayed, she took my dreams
She broke them on the ground
The sounds I heard were my screams
A heart broken round

Verse 3
And now sheís gone to live away
And left me in our home
Didnít she know how hard it is
To live a life alone
She came, she saw and killed me
With her knowing grin
Did she know that sheíd kill me
Did she know the state Iím in

Chorus
I should have known better
I thought you were my queen
But last night I saw you
Dancing round the bonfire of my dreams

DEAD END

Verse 1
You canít get it right in school
You think youíre a special fool
Canít make sense of your books
Keep on getting those sidelong looks
Canít see how itís gonna end
Dead end

Verse 2
Your pa thinks youíre a waste of time
But you know you are doing fine
Donít care much about the world
When you keep getting in with girls
Canít see how youíre gonna bend
Dead end

Verse 3
You might be tough, might be dumb
But you know when to come
You just got loads of friends
Man the line never seems to end
I lust wanna be your friend
Dead end


DEAD MAN WALKING

Walking through a dream

Out through your door

Iím a
Dead man walking
Walking all alone
Dead man walking
And I got no home
You donít need me
You told me to go
Iím a
Dead man walking
Got no place to go

Nights of bliss

Chorus

I love you so deeply
I fell so completely
Into your arms

Canít think of anyone elseís charms

Do you know

Of knights like this
Are you coy
For a long lost kiss

Can you see

Donít you know
Iíve waited long
Do you know
I love you so
