Leave in Silence
I've told myself so many times before
But this time I think I mean it for sure
We have reached a full stop
Nothing's gonna save us from the big drop

Reached our natural conclusion
Outlived the illusion
I hate being in these situations
That call for diplomatic relations

If I only knew the answer
Or I thought we had a chance
Or I could stop this
I would stop this thing from spreading like a cancer

What can I say? (I don't want to play) anymore
What can I say? I'm heading for the door
I can't stand this emotional violence
Leave in silence

We've been running around in circles all year
Doing this and that and getting nowhere
This'll be the last time
(I think I said that last time)

If I only had a potion,
Some magical lotion
That could stop this, I would stop this
I would set the wheels in motion

What can I say? (I don't want to play) anymore
What can I say? I'm heading for the door
I can't stand this emotional violence
Leave in silenceback to top
My Secret Garden
My secret garden's not so secret anymore
Run from the house holding my head in my hands
Feeling dejected, feeling like a child might feel

It all seems so absurd that this should have occurred
My very only secret and I had to go and leak it
My secret garden's not so secret anymore

No, my secret garden's not so secret anymore
Run through the fields down to the edge of the water
Can't stay long, here comes the reason why

She'll catch me if she can, take me by the hand
I'll have to keep on running and I just can't see the fun in
My secret garden not being secret anymore

It used to be so easy on days such as these she'd
Search and search for hours, in among the flowers

I loved it, I loved her

Play the fool, act so cruel (I loved it)
Read a book, take a look (I loved her)

It all seems so absurd that this should have occurred
My very only secret and I had to go and leak it
My secret garden's not so secret anymoreback to top
Monument
When the site was found we laid the foundations down
It didn't take long before they came back tumbling down
Don't build at night, you need a little light
How else you gonna see what it's gonna be like?

So we picked up our tools and we worked in the morning light
With the last stone placed wasn't it a wonderful sight?
But it fell back down and scattered all around
Anything passes when you need glasses

My monument
It fell down

Work all of my days for this kind of praise
It fell downback to top

See You
All I want to do is see you again
Is that too much to ask for?
I just want to see your sweet smile
Smiled the way it was before

Well I'll try not to hold you
And I'll try not to kiss you
And I won't even touch you

All I want to do is see you
Don't you know that it's true

I remember the days when we'd walk through the woods
And sit on a bench for a while
I treasure the way we used to laugh and play
And look in each others eyes

You can keep me at a distance if you don't trust my resistance
But I swear I won't touch you

All I want to do is see you
Don't you know that it's true

Well I know five years is a long time
And that times change (oh that times change)
But I think that you will find
People are basically the same (basically the same)

If the water's still flowing, we can go for a swim
And do the things we used to do
And if I'm reluctant you can pull me in
And we can relive our youth

Oh but we'll stay friendly like sister and brother
Though I think I still love you
All I want to do is see you
Don't you know that it's true?back to top
Satellite
Now hear this my friends
I'll never be the same again
Gonna lock myself in a cold black room
Gonna shadow myself in a veil of gloom

I will function, operate
I will be a satellite of hate

Driven to this point by a chain of events
Each one pushed me nearer the edge
Gonna send my message through to you
And you'll receive the signal too

I will function, operate
I will be a satellite of hate

Higher

Disillusioned, I was disenchanted
Forgot the love that had been implanted
Heard the lies and I felt the cold
It broke my heart and I lost control

Now I'm a satellite of a free state
I'm a satellite of hate
A satellite of hate

The Meaning of Love
I've read more than a hundred books
Seen love mentioned many thousand times
But despite all the places I've looked
It's still no clearer it's just not enough
I'm still no nearer the meaning of love

Noted down all my observations
Spent an evening watching television
Still I couldn't say with precision
Know it's a feeling and it comes from above
But what's the meaning, the meaning of love?

The meaning of love
Tell me the meaning of love

From the notes that I've made so far
Love seems something like wanting a scar
But I could be wrong, I'm just not sure you see,
I've never been in love before

Next I asked several friends of mine
If they could spare a few minutes of their time
Their look suggested that I'd lost my mind
Tell me the answer, my lord high above
Tell me the meaning, the meaning of love

The meaning of love
Tell me the meaning of love

From the notes that I've made so far
Love seems something like wanting a scar
But I could be wrong, I'm just not sure you see,
I've never been in love before

Tell me the meaning of loveback to top

A Photograph of You
What good is a photograph of you?
Every time I look at it
It makes me feel blue

What use is a souvenir of something
We once had
When all it ever does is
Make me feel bad

I wish I could tear it up
But then again I haven't the guts
I wish I could throw it on the fire
I wish I could
But to say I would
I'd be a liar

What good is a color print of a little baby doll?
When just one little glance is enough to make me feel dull

I wish I would misplace it
But then I take such good care of it
I wish it would disappear
I say I wish
But then I relish it being here

What good is a photograph of you?
Every time I look at it
It makes me feel blueback to top
Shouldn't Have Done That
Plans made in the nursery
Can change the course of history
Remember that

Mommy's annoyed
Says go and play
Don't show your face
Stay away all day
Shouldn't have done that

Small boy and his infantry
Marching around so naturally
Shouldn't have done that

Grows up and goes to school
Such a nice boy, obeys all the rules
Mummy's proud of that

Leaves school
To follow his ambition
Knows what he wants
To be a politician
Shouldn't have done thatback to top
The Sun & The Rainfall
Someone will call
Something will fall
And smash on the floor
Without reading the text
Know what comes next
Seen it before
And it's painful

Things must change
We must rearrange them
Or we'll have to estrange them
All that I'm saying
The game's not worth playing
Over and over again

You're the one I like best
You retain my interest
You're the only one
If it wasn't for you
Don't know what I'd do
Unpredictable like the sun
And the rainfall

Things must change
We must rearrange them
Or we'll have to estrange them
All that I'm saying
The game's not worth playing
Over and over againback to top
