"Ticket To The Moon"

"Ticket To The Moon"


Remember the good old 1980s?
When things were so uncomplicated?
I wish I could go back there again
And everything could be the same.

I've got a ticket to the moon
I'll be leaving here any day soon
Yeah, I've got a ticket to the moon
But I'd rather see the sunrise in your eyes.

Got a ticket to the moon
I'll be rising high above the earth so soon
And the tears I cry might turn into the rain
That gently falls upon your window
You'll never know.

[CHORUS:]
Ticket to the moon (ticket to the moon)
Ticket to the moon (ticket to the moon)
Ticket to the moon (ticket to the moon).

Fly, fly through a troubled sky
Up to a new world shining bright, oh, oh.

Flying high above
Soaring madly through the mysteries that come
Wondering sadly if the ways that led me here
Could turn around and I would see you there
Standing there (and I would see you there, waiting...)

Ticket to the moon
Flight leaves here today from Satellite Two
As the minutes go by, what should I do?
I paid the fare, what more can I say?
It's just one way (only one way)...

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[REPEAT CHORUS]

"Tightrope"

"Tightrope"



They say some days you're gonna win,
They say some days you're gonna lose.
I tell you I got news for you
Your losin' all the time you never win
If you believe that's how it's gonna be I'd better put you down
Get off your tightrope up there come down on
The ground you gotta save me now,
You better turn around.
When I looked around, I was heading down.
Won't somebody throw me down a line.

They say some days you gotta give--
They say some days you gotta take--
If that's the way it's gotta be,
Roll it over and you will see.
The city streets are full of people going nowhere making time.
The change from night to day is really only hours,
It's just along the line can't you see the sign
When I looked around, I was heading down,
Won't somebody throw me down a line.

I want to look you straight in the eye,
I want to tell you how I really feel,
I can feel the wheels turnin' round,
Won't somebody throw me down a line
The city streets are full of people going nowhere making time,
The change from night to day is really only hours
It's just along the line, can't you see the sign
When I closed my eyes, I was so surprised
Somebody had thrown me down the line--stopped me drownin'

"Time After Time"

"Time After Time"


Time after time, time after time
The skies are darkening they grow so dim
Strangers are meeting but it never ends
And one day they'll remember, one day they will know

(Time after time)
From far away there comes a warning sound
And no one listens but it's all around
And one day they'll remember, one day they will know

[Chorus:]
Time after time, no hiding anywhere
Time after time, the visions in the air
Time after time, they come from everywhere

(Time after time)
Time after time
Just listen to the sirens of the world
They breathe a whisper waiting for the word
And one day they'll remember, one day they will know

(Time after time)
Time after time it is the same old story
Another footstep on the trail of glory
And one day they'll remember, one day they will know

[Chorus]

The beauty of the earth from way up high
Shines like a jewel on the velvet sky
And one day they'll remember, one day they will know

The skies are darkening they grow so dim
Strangers are meeting but it never ends
And one day they'll remember, one day they will know

[Chorus]

Emit retfa emit, no hiding anywhere
Emit retfa emit, no visions in the air
They come from everywhere

"Train Of Gold"

"Train Of Gold"


I saw her there from across the street, she was dressed in black
And when she moved she moved to a beat, like a Cadillac
She rode a train, train train train, a train of gold

She was a woman of suspicious ways, never saw daylight
And in her room she sat and passed the days
And she'd creep out at night
She rode a train, train train train, a train of gold

[Chorus:]
Train of gold, train of gold
It took me so long to find out I was wrong
Now I wait for her in the night

Looked through a window saw a velvet sky, a shade of green
A violin was playing soft and sweet, like it was a dream
She rode a train, train train train, a train of gold

Train of gold, train of gold
It took me so long to find out I was wrong
Now I wait for her in the night

Train of gold, train of gold
I don't believe her, it just couldn't be her
I can't get it out of my mind

"Turn To Stone"

"Turn To Stone"



The city streets are empty now THE LIGHTS DON'T SHINE NO MORE
and so the songs are way down low TURNING TURNING TURNING
A sound that flows into my mind THE ECHOES OF THE DAYLIGHT
of everything that is alive IN MY BLUE WORLD

I turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.
Turn to stone when you comin' home, I can't go on.

The dying embers of the night A FIRE THAT SLOWLY FADES TILL DAWN
still glow upon the wall so bright BURNING BURNING BURNING
The tired streets that hide away FROM HERE TO EVERYWHERE THEY GO
roll past my door into the day IN MY BLUE WORLD

I turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.
Turn to stone when you comin' home, I can't go on.
Turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.

Yes, I'm turnin' to stone 'cos you ain't comin' home.
Why you ain't comin' home if I'm turnin' to stone?
You've been gone for so long and I can't carry on,
yes, I'm turnin', I'm turnin', I'm turnin' to stone.

The dancing shadows on the wall THE TWO-STEP IN THE HALL
are all I see since you've been gone TURNING TURNING TURNING
Through all I sit here and I wait I TURN TO STONE I TURN TO STONE
You will return again some day TO MY BLUE WORLD

I turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.
Turn to stone when you comin' home, I can't go on.
Turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.

I turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.
Turn to stone when you comin' home, I can't go on.
Turn to stone when you are gone, I turn to stone.

"Twilight"

"Twilight"


The visions dancing in my mind
The early dawn, the shades of time
Twilight crawling through my windowpane
Am I awake or do I dream?
The strangest pictures I have seen
Night is day and twilight's gone away

With your head held high and your scarlet lies
You came down to me from the open skies
It's either real or it's a dream
There's nothing that is in between...

[CHORUS:]
Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I gave you time to steal my mind
Away from me.

Across the night I saw your face
You disappeared without a trace
You brought me here, but can you take me back?
Inside the image of your light
That now is day and once was night
You lead me here and then you go away.

[REPEAT CHORUS]

(You brought me here, but can you take me back again?)

With your head held high and your scarlet lies
You came down to me from the open skies

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, Twilight, Twilight, Twilight.

"Waterfall"

"Waterfall"


So now it's getting late, for thse who hesitate, got no one,
But they don't understand and no one hears the sound,
It's like a waterfall, it's an illusion.

[CHORUS]
Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair,
But you know as you hold back the power there without the friends
And lovers you could never go on living.

Across the waterfall that's falling evermore down on you,
Cascading through the days, and flowing on it's way,
That's how it has to be, just an illusion.

[CHORUS repeat]

"When I Was A Boy"

"When I Was A Boy"



When I was a boy, I had a dream all about the things I'd like to be
Soon as I was in my bead, music played inside my head
When I was a boy, I had a dream

When I was a boy, I learned to play far into the night and drift away
Don't want to work on the milk and the bread, I just want to play my guitar instead
When I was a boy, I had a dream

And radio waves kept me company
In those beautiful days when there was no money
When I was a boy, I had a dream

When I was a boy, I had a dream finding out what life could really mean
Don't want a job cause it drives me crazy, just wanna sing, "Do you love me, baby?"
When I was a boy, I had a dream

And radio waves kept me company
In those beautiful days, when there was no money
When I was a boy, I had a dream

When I was a boy

"When The Night Comes"

"When The Night Comes"



When the night comes
That's when I think of you
When the night comes
I get midnight blue

But what can I say
When the night comes to stay

When the night comes (And everybody's gone)
When the night comes (And I'm here all alone)
When the night comes
Every night, that's when I think of you

Now's the time
I see the twilight comin' on
Now's the time
Pretty soon, they'll all be gone

But where will I be
When the night comes to me

When the night comes (And everybody's gone)
When the night comes (And I'm here all alone)
When the night comes
Every night, that's when I think of you

But what can I say
When the night comes to stay

When the night comes (And everybody's gone)
When the night comes (And I'm here all alone)
When the night comes
Every night, that's when I think of you
When the night comes (And everybody's gone)
When the night comes (And I'm here all alone)
When the night comes
Every night, that's when I think of you
When the night comes (And everybody's gone)
When the night comes (And I'm here all alone)

"When Time Stood Still"

"When Time Stood Still"



Time rolls on eternally
Got a thing about it
Just can't live without it

Sitting there inside your mind
Just waiting for the clock to chime
On a lonely line
Stood a lonely man

No pictures on an empty wall
No body there no one at all
Just echoes in the ivory halls
When time stood still

Days line up outside the door
Thought time had stopped there was no more
Been a lonely world
Such a lonely world

No pictures on an empty wall
No Toulouse, Vincent, or Pablo
Just echoes in the ivory halls
When time stood still

No big machine or April showers
No submarines no plastic flowers
Just echoes in the ivory towers
When time stood still

When time stood still
When time stood still
When time stood still
