Someone Somewhere In Summertime

Stay, I'm burning slow
With me in the rain, walking in the soft rain
Calling out my name
See me burning slow

Brilliant days, wake up on brilliant days
Shadows of brilliant ways will change all the time
Memories, burning gold memories
Gold of day memories change me in these times

Somewhere there is some place, that one million eyes can't see
And somewhere there is someone, who can see what I can see

Someone, Somewhere In Summertime
Someone, Somewhere In Summertime
Someone, Somewhere In Summertime

Moments burn, slow burning golden nights
Once more see city lights, holding candles to the flame
Brilliant days, wake up on brilliant days
Shadows of brilliant ways will change me all the time

Somewhere there is some place, that one million eyes can't see
And somewhere there is someone, who can see what I can see

Someone, Somewhere In Summertime
Someone, Somewhere In Summertime
Someone, Somewhere In Summertime
Someone, Somewhere In Summertime
Someone, Somewhere In Summertime

Colours Fly And Catherine Wheel

``Belle''
Never turn your back
Great times attack
Inexpensive thrills

And I said Belle
Of all the friends who care
Some should be seen
But never heard

Colours Fly and Catherine Wheels
Poor girls cry
In the beauty of both worlds

Catch a boy Fell Falling
Fall in love Fell Falling
Catch a boy Fell Falling
Fall in love Fell Falling
Catch a boy Fell Falling
Out of the Sky

``Belle''
When the pulses rise
Love will tranquilize
Just before it kills

And I said Belle
You turn them on
With your reflection
I know so well

Colours Fly and Catherine Wheels
Poor girls cry
In the beauty of both worlds

Catch a boy Fell Falling
Fall in love Fell Falling
Catch a boy Fell Falling
Fall in love Fell Falling
Catch a boy Fell Falling
Out of the Sky

Catch a boy Fell Falling
Fall in love Fell Falling
Catch a boy Fell Falling
Fall in love Fell Falling
Catch a boy Fell Falling
Out of the Sky
Out of the Sky

Colours Fly and Catherine Wheels
Some girl cry
Over her boyfriend
When Colours Fly and Catherine Wheels

So when the colours fly
And when the catherine wheels...

Promised You A Miracle

Promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering
Chance as love takes a train
Summer breeze and brilliant light
One love she sees
He controls on love
Love sails to a new life

Promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering
Only love she sees
He controls on love
Life mirrors a cure
Everything is possible
With promises
Everything is possible
Oh no

I promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering
Chance reflects on them a while
Love screams so quietly
Slipping back on golden times
Breathing with sweet memories

Promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering

Only love she sees
He controls on love
Life mirrors a cure
Everything is possible in the game of life
Everything is possible
Oh no

Chance lost pearls of great price
Take care of family
Only aches for love
Love waits for fame
In chance in chance they'll see

I promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering

Only love she sees
He controls on love
Life throws a cure
Everything is possible in the game of life
A burning dream
You can be Queen
Everything is possible

Big Sleep

So where did you go?
Where do you go in the Big Sleep
Going out in the Deep Sleep
Is where you're wandering now

So where did you go
When you're in the Big Sleep
Drifting in wildlife
And still you're wandering now

We were on the top and the world was spinning
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning
Communication lost in the thundering rain style
A shelter from the storm in the early beginning
Going out in the Big Sleep, out in the Big Sleep
Could have been years, you know it could have been years
Or only seconds ago

Big Sleep, Deep Sleep

Where are you now?
Now that you're up in Big Sleep
Valuable friend
They saw you leaving this way

We were on the top and the world was spinning
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning
Communication lost in the thundering rain style
A shelter from the storm in the early beginning
Where did you go?
Immaculate friend
For a lifetime I'm grateful
And it's only seconds away

Big Sleep, Deep Sleep

For evermore
If only you could see me
If only you could see me
If only you could see
Forever
Coming home in the Big Sleep
Coming home

New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84)

New Gold Dream
She is the one in front of me, the siren and the ecstasy
New Gold Dream
Crashing beats and fantasy, setting sun in front of me
New Gold Dream
And the world goes hot
And the cities take
And the beat goes crashing
All along the way

She is your friend until the ocean breaks
And when you dream, dream in the dream with me
And when you dream, dream in the dream with me
81 - 82 - 83 - 84
81 - 82 - 83 - 84

New Gold Dream
Sun is set in front of me, worldwide on the widest screen
New Gold Dream
Burning bridge and ecstasy, crashing beats and fantasy
Dream in the dream with
And the world goes hot
And the cities take
And the beat goes crashing
All along the way

She is your only friend until the ocean breaks

And when you dream, dream in the dream with me
And when we dream, dream in the dream with me
81 - 82 - 83 - 84
81 - 82 - 83 - 84

New Gold Dream
The siren and the ecstasy, she's the one in front of me
New Gold Dream...

Glittering Prize

Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my life so that much more I see
In the light of his love
In the light of reflection
Oh what a world
Or sometimes oh so it seems
Eyes in the skies
In that silver gift friendship
A Glittering Prize
Is it the prize of lost loves
They can remember quiet sides of midnight
They can remember the attraction of fame
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw up on a clear day
First taking hearts
Then our last breath away

Always came a time - time was on our side
We were spending time - we were staring out
Catch me in a dream - Captured all in heart
We were spending time - we were staring out
Could there ever be - ever more than one
It's called an act of Love
Can you you never stop?

Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my Life
So much more I see
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw you up on a clear day
First taking heart then our last breath away
Only on a clear day coming into our lives

See it in the eye - satellite skies
We were spending time - we were staring out
Take in, Take in more - The Endless breath away
We were spending time - we were staring out
Could there ever be - ever more than one
It's called an act of Love
Can you you never stop?

Always on a clear day
Crashing into our lives
Is it the Price of Love
Like a Glittering Prize
Always on a clear day
Crashing into our lives
With your love
Only on a clear day

Hunter And The Hunted

Shooting from the hip
About our faith and love
I see it in your faces thin as shadow
See me as I figure in your late night plan
See me as I'm cocooned up in Badland
The side effects of cruising at the speed of life
The side effects of living in temptation
When only one star is waiting up on all of us
You'll see me as I'm cocooned up in Badlands
And how do I feel living in the eighties
And do I get to see the light of day

Kyoto in the snow but Heaven's far away
Sending their love - passion parade
Hunter and the Hunted
With me first times can never lie

They were young - they were brave - they were the honest set
The greatest show on earth is here tonight love
See me as a figure in the late night plan
See me as I'm cocooned up in Badlands
The side effects of cruising at the speed of life
The side effects of living in temptation
When only one star is waiting up on all of us
You'll see me as I'm cocooned up in Badlands
And how do I feel living in the eighties
And do I get to see the light of day

Kyoto in the snow
Heaven's far away
Sending their love
Passion parade
Hunter and the Hunted
With me first times can never lie
Only with you
Life moves so fast

When your hear me screaming
I'll be seeing through the eyes of love

Tell me can you hear me
Tell me can you see me

King Is White And In The Crowd

Talking by the pool of light, language from America.
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
They are not a melting pot, say no, say no tapestry
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd

She takes his hand and she says you'll stay
She's lost in the crowd
King
Wire them up, fire them up
The life and times, the art and talk
Wire them up, fire them up
The life and times, the art and talk

Lovers run camp Africa, Bars in town are civilised
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
Panorama, Citylife
Youth's dance proud from the waist down
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd

Shot from where the action is, a rhapsody in black and blue
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
Love lies under western eyes, powerful yet transient
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
