Track Name: I'll Take You Down
Lying on the eiderdown
She feels her heartbeat slowing down
And listens to the rain

Over in the corner
Is the man her mother warned her
Wouldn’t bring her love but pain

In the early hours of morning as has to realise
That a kiss upon the forehead means he’ll never leave his wife

Hoping for a call
She races down into the hall
But it’s a voice she doesn’t know

Someone makes an offer
Says he knows about her lover
And it’s over anyway

Staring out into the country
He begins to weakly pray
That some loyalty will save him
Then she telephones to say

I’ll take you down
I’ll take you with me
If you should try to discard my from your life

I’ll show you how
Love is forever
Or til I say, that you have paid for every day
Track Name: Get Out
On the staircase where they wrapped your body
I can sense a lonely soul
In the bedroom with the heater humming
Heard somebody whisper low

Can you feel me?
I don’t want to listen anymore
Can you feel me?
Just remember we were never really crazy

Get out my house I want you out
I know you can’t believe it
Get out my house I want you out
Pretend you can’t believe that I (I)
Could have said those things now you are so alone (you are so alone)
Go (go), where you should have gone so I can live again and again and again

Try to tease me with an ancient story
Of a pure and driven love
So enacted on a broken mattress
All that you were dreaming of

What a liar
I know everything about you now
What a liar
Just remember I was never all you needed

Get out my house I want you out
I know you can’t believe it
Get out my house I want you out
Pretend you can’t believe that I (I)
Could have said those thing it’s just so long ago (just so long ago)
Baby go, where you should have gone,
You cannot live again and again and again and

Get out my house, I want you out
Get out my house, I want you out
Get out, get out, I want you out
Get out , get out, get out
Get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out)
Get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out)
Get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out)
Get out (get out), get out (get out), get out (get out), get out
Track Name: Star
You took the pictures, all that she did was stand there
Smiling and clueless, that what you saw

The irony of innocence and profit was not wasted on her

Tell them how you made the star
From the backseat of your car
To the heady stages of the fashion pages

You could take her back again
To the dull insistent pain
Where you been for too long
And you know you don’t belong

Little by little, they tried to take her from you
That’s when you found out you were in love

You wouldn’t hurt her, though you could make a million
For you have seen her closer than most

The beauty of her innocence could not survive and she should know it

Tell them how you made the star
From the backseat of your car
To the heady stages of the fashion pages

You could take her back again
To the dull insistent pain
Where you been for too long
And you know you don’t belong


She could have never come this far, no
Track Name: Second Time Around
Waiting to see you at Marble Arch in June
Watching the traffic from my room

My independence has proved itself again
I’ll let it slip an inch today

Should I tell you of my loneliness and pain

And How I came to love you
The second time around
Without a touch, without a sound
How I tried to hate you, you know I never could
Because I knew that I had never felt so good


Finally with you the time has come to start
My repossession of your heart

Taking you over will only take the night
It is impossible to fight

When I hear the doubt inside your voice I know

How I came to love you
The second time around
Without a touch, without a sound
How I tried to hate you, you know I never could
Because I knew that I had never felt so good
Track Name: Someone To Dream Of
Say you love me though I know
Your head is full of people and adventure
I’ll teach you to let go

Come inside and take my life
You know it’s yours, I won’t resist a moment
How Could I even try

Half awake and half alive
At 3 a.m. I turned the television off
And rested at your side

Through the incidental days
I kept you here inside my heart reminding me
For when I lost my way

Someone to dream of
Someone to dream of
When I was angry, accusing and cold

Someone to live for
Someone to live for
You’re gonna need it as much as I do
I’m so in love with you

And if you don’t believe me you should try …
Track Name: Under Starlight
In a room down by the water
with no furniture at all
I decided this is over, Autumn 1984

I was never ever going home again
I refuse to be protected by something I haven't earned
Would I ever have the nerve

I won't lie, this could be the worse thing
I have done in my whole life
But I must try, leave me to discover
I'm as strong as any other

Drinking champagne in the hotel
with new people and new words
This is where it's gonna happen
this is where I will merge

I was stranded under starlight at the shore
When you turned to me and whispered in my ear
There is no turning back from here

I won't lie, this could be the worse thing
I have done in my whole life
But I must try, leave me to discover
I'm as strong as any other
Track Name: A Miserable Boy
You were a miserable boy
before you saw your fate
in a man on the stage

In '85 beside you at the barricades
we sung to every word
I knew you were imagining inhabiting that world

Don't be shy tonight
Tell us about your life
Say it til you really feel that you beleive it too
Don't be scared to cry
For we will only love you more
Becasue we know that you are warm down deep inside

High and tired after the show
Your mother picked us up
You could see it was wrong

You knew that you would have to get away from here
Define youself again
The poverty, the arrogance
The desperation and the pain

Don't be shy tonight
Tell us about your life
Say it til you really feel that you beleive it too
Don't be scared to cry
For we will only love you more
Because we know that you're the warmest man alive
Track Name: How To Face It
Leaning on the viaduct, your bottle in my hand
Huddled in your arms against the night

In our drunken glory we were perfectly in time
Adorable until the morning light

Now I don't know how to face it
Two Years later and I realise that what you said was true
You can play it to perfection
But if nobody is listening then you know you're bound to lose

Standing in the bedroom with some look upon your face
Staring out into the falling snow

Made an application but I never thought you'd go
In the new year I was here alone

Now I don't know how to face it
Two Years later and I realise that what you said was true
You can play it to perfection
But if nobody is listening then you know you're bound to lose

And when you tell me that you need a little time
Are you trying to be kind?
Or is it the end of the line?

Now I don't know how to face it
Two Years later and I realise that what you said was true
You can play it to perfection
But if nobody is listening then you know you're bound to lose
Track Name: Here In Heaven
Take me over, take me please
From the focus of the daylight
From the chaos of my mind

Make me happy, make me rise
I am hungry for the nightime
I am driven by your eyes

Who's the girl in big red car?
Laughing as she tells us we have gone too far

I found you tonight, here in heaven
We are beautiful tonight
I found you tonight, in a love song
Singing quietly inside

Hesitation alwalys near
with your voice I am awoken
With your touch I lose my fear

Liberate me with your kiss
All my life I have been waiting
I have searched alone for this

Though the heat of a thousand eyes
Closes in upon us
Stay with me tonight

I found you tonight, here in heaven
We are beautiful tonight
I found you tonight, in a love song
Singing quietly inside

Who's the girl in the big red car?
Laughing as she tells us we have gone too far

I found you tonight, here in heaven
We are beautiful tonight
I found you tonight, in a love song
Singing quietly inside
Track Name: Over Your Head
The telephone is ringing to itself
The Television doesn't help
Trying to forget her name

Dizzy as the world is rushing past
When you find your feet at last
It will never be the same

She was cold and she was cruel
She was beautiful and new

It's over your head
It's over in a moment
Never to say what you meant to say
You think that it's you
You think that you're a no-one
Back on the beat, you look wonderful to me

Lonely at the water's edge again
Taste the spray and kill the pain
I can fell the time is near

Maybe if your confidence is low
I could come around and show you exactly how I feel
She was stupid, she was wrong
She was love but whe is gone ...

It's over your head
It's over in a moment
Never to say what you meant to say
You think that it's you
You think that you're a no-one
Back on the beat, you look wonderful to me
Track Name: So Cold
Saw you last night for the first time in years
Dreamt you confronted me covered in tears

You asked what happened
I couldn't say why
We were in love and then somehow it died

Why should I want to see you?
Why should I want to know?
Anything that you never showed

Why does it feel so cold lying alone here?
In the pictures above me I see your eyes
Accusing me now
No I never expected you now

Finished with love only 20 years old
Clenched and resentful you turned to the world

Cheated by passion and poisoned by hope
I didn't stop you when you tried to go

No I don't want to see you?
No I don't want to know?
All the things that you never showed

Why does it feel so cold lying alone here?
In the pictures above me I see your eyes
Accusing me now
No I never expected you now
