Save Tonight
Go on and close the curtains
Cause all we need is candlelight
You and me and a bottle of wine
Going to hold you tonight

Well we know I'm going away
And how I wish...wish it weren't so
So take this wine and drink with me
Let's delay our misery

Chorus:
Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone

There's a log on the fire
And it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away...it's true
It ain't easy to say goodbye
Darling please don't start to cry
'cause girl you know I've got to go
Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be gone

Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that i....that I could stay
Girl you know I've got to go
Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be goneback to top
Indecision
Well I found my inspiration there
In silent whispers it just came to me so clear
Simple question of what was I doing there

Chorus:
Hesitation
When I'm standing with my prey
Indecision
Of if I should blow him away

It's kind of strange
What happened from that moment on
What more can I say than reason he was gone
What they were asking was more than I could bear

Execution
What more can...can I say
The realization
Of blowing a brother away

Something in me was gone
Something in me was gone

Chorus

Simple question of what was I doing there
Execution
It was not a part of me
The realization
Of how things are going to be

In my commitment to staying away from guilt
I feel no emotion for those I have gone and killed
Heartless devotion to saving the rest of me...

I take my gun and I give it to my prey
I turn my back to him and start to walk away
All I want is for someone to stop me there

Don't want redemption
Don't want salvation........(repeat)

In my commitment to staying away from guilt
I feel no emotion for those I have gone and killed.....
Heartless devotion to saving the rest of me...back to top
Comatose (In the Arms of Slumber)
The doors are closed and the walls are white
Someone calls but I don't want to talk tonight
Stay away you all want to.......stay away
I'm going to be all right......all right

Chorus:
Within the arms of slumber
Going to leave it all behind
Comatose gone under
Like all the other times

With pride and disdain I'm going to ignore this pain
When someone falls you're supposed to get up again
I try to oblige but I can't tonight
I'm going to be all right......all right

Chorus

Comfort of my dreams
I resign myself to you
Dream as I might
I'm sleeping when I'm blue
Such a pleasure when I feel myself go under
So stay away....stay away
While I'm in the arms of slumber
And I'm leaving it all behind

The magic of sweet morpheus you're doing it once again
You saved me from my sadness you saved me from my pain
Protect me from depression protect me one more night
And I'll be all right......all right

Chorus

Comfort of my dreams
I resign myself to you
Dream as I might
I'm sleeping when I'm blue
Such a pleasure when I feel myself go under
So stay away....stay away
While I'm in the arms of slumberback to top
Worried Eyes
I've tried so hard to remember what it is that I forgot
But I can, but I can believe..... will you now
I've tried, I've tried
Cried and kissed goodbye
To something that we both know
Boy you blow my mind
I don't know how I'm going to
Show you what I feel for you

All I know
All I know is I.......

Want to be with you
Have you ever tried to be
Have you ever tried to see
Something but you don't really know what it is
Lord but we got to try
I look at you
I hear your voice
I try to remember...... I try to remember
So don't you look at me with worried eyes
'Cause you know we got to try girl

All I know
All I know is I.......
Want to be with you.....
Here I am and I believe
Yes I do........
What I do, what I do for you
I look at you
I hear your voice
I try to remember.......... I try to remember
So don't you look at me with worried eyes
'Cause you know we got to try girl

All I know
All I know is I........
Want to be with you.........back to top
Rainbow Wings
I met the devil in disguise
With his rainbow wings and a pack of lies
I had my suspicions but they were ignored

Chorus:
Far away the angel cries
How far away the angel sings
Don't sell your soul for a pack of lies
Don't sell your soul

I watched him preach from the book of greed
With promises of glory and how we'll succeed
I had my suspicions but they were ignored

Chorus (2x)back to top
Falling in Love Again
I'm so tired
Of falling in love
Finding it easier to fall out
Can't deny it
I feel it inside cupid's fire
I can't hide

Chorus:
I'm falling in love again
Ain't nothing I can do
Falling in love again
Girl this time it's with you
When I fall
It's always the same
And I'm so tired
Of playing this game

It's been so long now
Since I gave up my heart
I've kept it locked down
I don't wanna get it harmed
So let me tell you now
I just want to be sure
That you won't hurt me
Can you promise me that

Chorus

You got to tell me
If you're going to break my heart
'cos I don't wanna take the chance
And if it ain't true
All it's gonna be
Is nothing but a poor romance
So give me that promise to hold on
And I'll never let you go
We gotta have something to go on
I'm letting you know now

Chorus

Falling in love again (repeat)back to top
Conversation
Chorus:
Conversation with the child who once believed in you
How does one explain to him what it is you do
He says daddy daddy please tell me it's not true
What all the people are saying....saying about you

There comes a time when one must face the life that you have led
That is a hard thing to do when lies is all that has been said
And the blameless eyes of an innocent youth
Is begging for you to tell the truth
It's such a hard way to learn....hard way to learn

This moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
Come now little boy don't you cry
'cause the child in you is still alive

Chorus

There comes a time in this child's life when the boy becomes a man
So many things from his past he now can understand
Like all the times when dad would leave and be gone for so long
And he thought everything was all right
And he thought everything was all right

This moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
Come now little boy don't you cry
'cause the child in you is still alive

This moment of truth will hurt for life
Don't need to tell you that ain't right
Come now little boy don't you cry
'cause the child in you is still alive

Such a hard way to learn......(repeat)back to top
When Mermaids Cry
She was drowned in suicide
Faithless lover cast aside
This is how she came to be
Lorelei of the sea
Hopes destroyed, she wanted to find
Certain death peace of mind
Now you wonder who is she
Lorelei of the sea
Many tales I've been told of sailors having died
After seeing a mermaid known
As lorelei
Faithless lover that is me
And she siren of the sea
So next time that the seagulls fly
Don't you cry sweet lorelei

Chorus:
Seagulls fly
When mermaids cry
Those tears won't dry
For lorelei

The guilt is mine I was untrue
The question is what am I to do
All I know is I got to try
Try to find sweet lorelei
Make amends for what's been done
'cause I believe that she's the one
And I will go where seagulls fly
Try to find sweet lorelei

Chorus

There she is I hear her cry
She's asking me if I will die
There ain't nothing I won't do
For you lorelei

Shooting up in Vain
Waking up as the sun goes down
Body all in pain
Straight out the door to the worst part of town
Shooting up in vain

Slips all his money to the man
Here we go again....here we go again
Got bags of mercy in the palm of his hand
Shooting up in vain

Chorus:
So he heads for the closest rooftop
And now he's free with the skyline begind
But it won't be long until his high will drop
Then you know what he'll try to find
Such a shame

Now he's back on that hunt for more
Body all in pain
Wanting to get back to where he was before
Shooting up in vain
So now he goes and sells his wedding ring
Here we go again......here we go again
But now he's sold exactly everything
Shooting up in vain

Chorus

Such a shame

Down to the bed as the sun goes up
Body all in pain
Now he swears he's going to stop
Shooting up in vain
He's dr. jekyll and he's mr. hyde
He's got to listen to that voice deep inside
Got a one-way ticket on a derailed train
Got a one-way ticket on a derailed train
Shooting up in vain
Such a shame
Such a shame

Got a one-way ticket on a derailed train

Got to stop shooting up in vain.............(repeat)back to top
Permanent Tears
On the day of her arrival
No one is there to meet her
Something of a sad one
A girl with permanent tears
Born without a family
Born without a name
All she ever wanted
Was to wipe her tears away

Wipe her tears away....away
Away........away

If someone came to love her
And if someone came to be
The one that will protect her
Be a family
Now we will see a smile again
And tears like dreams can be
Something we will never see
Lost in her memory

Wipe her tears away
Away.........away
Wipe her tears away
Tears away......away......away

She's something of a tragedy
Stands in the shade of despair
I want to cast some light onto her world
A world of permanent tears
Born without a family
Born without a name
Free this weeping willow
>from drowning in a flood of tears

Wipe her tears away
Tears away......away......away (repeat)back to top
Death Defied by Will
He only thought he was going for the thrill of a ride
Wasn't in the plan to be gone for long
But he keeps looking bac over his shoulder
He knows that something might go wrong
The ride it ain't smooth that is for sure
Strange mood what is the cure
He's got that feeling of impending doom
Like being trapped in a casket inside a tomb

Death defied by will
Like a drug that doesn't kill
Boy you gotta learn what's true
Death defied by will
Like a drug that doesnt kill
The joke is on you
You ought to know better
You ought to know better

He is determined to outsmart this snake
With conviction he will stand his ground
Feeling invincible like death itself
But his immortality won't be found
What should he say at his own wake
That he refuses to fulfill his fate
He doesn't know that this is his last drive
On the road we call alive

Death defied by will
Like a drug that doesn't kill
Boy you gotta learn what's true
Death defied by will
Like a drug that doesn't kill
Now the joke is on you

Now the time has come
You can't play around
And you ought to know
You ought to know better
You ought to know better

Death defied by will
Like a drug that doesnt kill
Boy you gotta learn whats true
Death defied by will
Like a drug that doesnt kill
Now the joke is on youback to top
