Piano Song (Instrumental)

Blue Savannah
Oh it's a blue Savannah song

Somewhere 'cross the desert
Sometime in the early hour
In a restless world
On the open highways

My home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only
I send my love to you

Blue Savannah song
Oh blue Savannah song

Racing 'cross the desert
At a hundred miles an hour
To the orange side
Through the clouds and thunder

Home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only
I send my love to you

I'm on my way back
And your love will bring me home
I'm travelling fast
And your love will bring me home
Will I discover
That your love will bring me home?

Somewhere 'cross the desert
Sometime in the early hour
To the orange side
Through the clouds and thunder

My home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only
I send my love to you

Drama
One rule for us, for you another
Do unto yourself as you see fit for your brother
Is that not within your realm of understanding?
A fifty second capacity of mind, too demanding?
Well then poor unfortunate you
There are a myriad of things that you can do

Like pick up a pen and paper or go talk to a friend
The history of the future
No violence or revenge

Your shame is never...ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty and how you ever entered into this life
God only knows, the infinite complexities of love

We all have the ability
Our freedom is fragile
We all laugh and we cry don't we?
We all bleed and we smile

Your shame is never...ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty and how you ever entered into this life
God only knows, you're not to sacrifice the art of love

Your shame is never...ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty and how you ever entered into this life
God only knows, the infinite complexities of love

Your shame is never...ending
Just one psychological drama after another
We are guilty and how you ever entered into this life
The Lord only knows, the ultimate necessity of love

How many times?
Love leave me alone
I've got troubles of my own
I do believe that I have paid the price
For all the things I've said and done
Every little thing that seemed to go wrong

How many times
Will I regret the chances taken?
Why do I end up
Always the one who is mistaken?

Love leave me to sleep
Let me wallow in my dreams
See the icy past fade away
The dawning of a brand new day
The echoes of the past that still remind me

How many times
Will I regret the chances taken?
Why do I end up
Always the one who is mistaken?

How many times
Will I regret the chances taken?
Why do I end up
Always the one who is mistaken?

How many times
Will I regret the chances taken?
Why do I end up
Always the one who is mistaken?

Star
We go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

You got to look real hard
There's a fiery star
Hidden out there somewhere
Not the satellite of love
But a laser
Shooting out it's shiny tongue there

God is love, God is war
TV-preacher tell me more
Load redeem me, am I pure?
As pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

You got to look real hard
Is it in your heart?
Yeah it's in there somewhere
The power wrapped in your palm
Show it to me
Hit them with your wrath and thunder

What's your pleasure?
Tell it to me
How did you know?
Show your beauty
In you somewhere, somewhere in me
Pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?
Yeeha

Rolling along through a rose coloured glow
The city looks pretty in pink
Armageddon is here!

Did you ever have a lover
Leave you for another
To take your love and kisses for granted?
Never to discover
War is not the answer
Leave you only disenchanted

God is love, God is war
TV-preacher tell me more
Father help me am I pure?
As pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

La Gloria
Oh Suzi you're shaking your red hair
Disco diva y flamenco chico
You know the eyes'll all be fixing on you tonight
La bonita a la vista de un marinero
The men in the casa de rosa
They have a penchant for living
She'll be dancing till the coca wears off tonight
Who's a bad girl tonight?

Tonight she'll be having fun
The likes of which we'll never know
Tonight she'll be having fun
See her go

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Woah estamos en la gloria

Oh Suzi you're shaking your red dress
Viva tango to revive the bull
She'll be dancing, she'll be clicking her heels tonight
If you see her estrellita, she'll make you king for a day
Ole to the cabaretera
She'll sing all your troubles away
Looking down the barrel of a loaded gun
Pata tendida!
Si no la bandida
She go rattattatta

!Ariba ariba ariba andale!
Kiss all them working day blues away
Till the light of day

Estamos en la gloria
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Woah estamos en la gloria
la gloria
la gloria

You Surround Me

Don't ever let me take you for granted
You've got your finger on the pulse of my soul
Let me place a kiss in the small of your back
Love and protect you from the evils of this world

Baby don't ever leave me stranded
Who ever said that the streets were paved with gold?
We'll I'm afraid that we're all sadly mistaken
There's nothing here till we have someone to hold

I love you with all the joy of living
Till the lights go down in New York City
It's a special love affair
There's magic in the air

You gotta shake me down
Bring me round to my senses
Till I'm lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

If love wasn't here would we reinvent it?
Oh take me down to the very root of my soul
Oh baby say it as if you really mean it
And feel the passion work it's way up through your skin

I love you with all the joy of living
Till the lights go down in New York City
It's a special love affair
And there's magic in the air

You gotta shake me down
Bring me round to my senses
Till I'm lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

Let me take you by the hand
And we can go and find a brand new world
Starlight, starbright
Let me take you by the hand
And lead you to a safe place in this world

You gotta shake me down
Bring me round to my senses
Till I'm lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

You gotta shake me down
Bring me round to my senses
Till I'm lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

Brother And Sister
When I was young
I would scream blue murder
Till I had my own way
Run from the family
And tell of a story to spite my elders

Round and round
The boy in the garden of lies and science fiction

Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on a lot we can do
Send love to mother I'll be good to you

To pollute the mind of a minor
The only escape from the rigours of life
Pretend we're a family and believe
In the virtues of truth

Round and round
Caught up in a tangle of lies and deception

Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on a lot we can do
Send love to mother I'll be good to you

Round and round and round and round

Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on a lot we can do
Send love to mother I'll be good to you

Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on a lot we can do
Send love to mother I'll be good to you

Still we're going round
The boy in the garden of lies

Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on a lot we can do
Send love to mother I'll be good to you

2000 Miles
There's something I need to say
I'm not sad you're gone away no way
Won't be calling information 
Or waiting at the railway station
You walked out of my front door
I wasn't then but now I'm sure
I need to be at least 2000 miles away from you

2000 miles away from you
2000 miles away from you
2000 miles away from you
2000 miles away from you

Had to get me to the church on time
To say that silly I do I do nursery rhyme
You've been bitching at me for awhile
Say hey now baby don't you cramp my style
Don't go beating me like that
I'm glad you won't be coming back
I need to be at least 2000 miles away from you

2000 miles away from you
2000 miles away from you
2000 miles away from you
2000 miles away from you

Don't go beating me like that 
I'm glad you won't be coming back
Don't let the Devil tempt you now 
He'll lead you if he gets a chance

Crown Of Thorns
Fire of the sun flowers crumble into dust
The seed shall scatter and die
Light in her eyes pours black on their lives
We gather round a funeral pyre

And here we stand
In old England's land
Shattered glass on the ground
There are no words
To console this earth
To restore old England's pride

Never in a million or so years
Did we suffer so much bloodshed

Here comes the man with the warm and gentle hands
Her name burned into his brow
Scorn in her eyes her back to the cries
We spit upon the life that never was

And here we stand
In old England's land
The rose is choked by it's thorn
She will cast salt 
For your wound
Old England wears no crown

Never in a million or so years
Did we suffer so much bloodshed

Never in a million or so years
We didn't want to hurt you
But it's not over yet

No never in a million or so years
Did we suffer so much bloodshed

Piano Song

Never get angry at the stupid people
Though I go crazy at the dullness of my life
I Sit and I stare into a dusty window
An empty face stares back at me and cries

My vulnerability rushes up to me
And I'm left here
The rebel without a cause
The deeper I delve into
The consciousness of me with you
The harder it gets
I need to close my eyes
What hurts me most
I'll never see your eyes again

Though I get weary
Doesn't mean that I'm unwilling
My body belies me I'm of fertile mind
And as I grow older
The world forgets me
And talks to me as if I'm some kind of child

Their insensitivity washes over me
Till I'm left here
The rebel without a cause
The deeper I delve into
The consciousness of me and you
The harder it gets
I need to close my eyes
What hurts me most
I'll never see your eyes again

The harder it gets
I need to close my eyes
I can't recollect
I'll never see your eyes again
I try to forget
I'll never see your eyes again
What hurts me most
I'll never see your eyes again

Don't touch me
