The Score
What's your game
Alright you've got it
Take your aim
Alright you shot it

It's been so long your welcome back my friends
To the show that never ends

Do you know the score
Alright I hear you
I would make a play for sure
If I could only get near you

It's been so long your welcome back my friends
To the show that never ends

What's your name
I can't forget it
I've been there and back again
And I will never regret it

It's been so long your welcome back my friends
To the show that never endsback to top
Learning To Fly
Jungles where the tigers sleep
The neon glares
And talk is cheap
Stairways that lead to dreams
You turn around
A siren screams

Energy glows in the heart of the city
You stand in the shadows or reach for the sky
This time the promise is not just illusion
I'm heading for glory, I'm learning to fly

Out there you feel the heat
It's face to face, I cross the street
Help me I've done a fare
I need a ride
So take me there

Everything's moving out of the city
They murder with kisses and then wonder why
Everyone's looking out over their shoulder
We've all gotta jump so I'm learning to fly

I see a figure there, look back at me
I stand and stare
Searching for sanity
To break the force of gravity

Learning to fly ect x 5back to top
The Miracle
So here we stand between the gates
Upon the dawn the eagle waits
His tallons shine like daggers
On the wings of revolution
In pain the madman staggers
But there is no solution

Another sword upon a throne
But now the jester laughs alone

Beneath this cloak of treason
Appears a thousand faces
The truth must stand to reason
For those who's heart it chases

Beyond the world of mortal man
Within this sanctuary the spectre begins to tremble
They lay his spear upon the plan

On a sea of diamonds lies a ship of glass
Through the mist the torches pass

Their banners fly in splendour
The ghosts of night decended
With grace their souls surrender
The seal must be defended

Still the dragons reign supreme
Breathing fire till we scream
They leave us nothing but our dreams

No shield can save us
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle

Stand clear, there's storm above
And there is something left to fear
All speed, before the blade is drawn
And there is blood upon the seed

Let no one yield we're on the field
Where deeds eclipse the sun
Where the brave are told on a thread of gold
The tapestry is spun
As they speak of dreams their amour gleams
There's calm before the storm
But all can see their destiny
The bishop takes the pawn

In the sky the arrows fly
Each one to it's mark
Defend the true lead us through
This voyage in the dark
Make us strong you know right from wrong
Teach us what it's worth
Cos every heart that aches is what it takes
To save our mother earth

Lay your life upon the line
It's death for glory every time
You give up yours and I'll keep mine

No shield can save us
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle

So here we stand between the gates
Upon the dawn the eagle waits
His tallons shine like daggers
On the wings of a revolution
In the pain the madman staggers
But there is no solution

Still the dragons reign supreme
Breathing fire till we scream
They leave us nothing but our dreams

No shield can save us
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle
It's gonna take a miralce
We're searching for a miracleback to top
Touch And Go
Man in the street nowhere to sleep
No time for nothing no Patek Phillipe
Pedal to the metal Blow by Blow
You're runnin' with the devil it's touch and go
They're leaving you nothing and nowhere to go
Just put you in the corner like an old banjo
The strings are breakin' but you can't say no
You're runnin' with the devil it's touch and go
Systematic one man show
You're caught up in the middle where the four winds blow
No salvation 20 below
You're runnin' with the devil it's touch and go
All systems go friend or foe
It's all dependin' on the dice you throw
Come without a warning like a U.F.O.
You're runnin' with the devil it's touch and go
You see this woman on a T.V. show
She's drippin' in diamonds from head to toe
They make you believe it's the status quo
You're runnin' with the devil it's touch and go
All systems go friend or foe
It's all dependin' on the dice you throw
Come without a warning like a U.F.O.
You're runnin' with the devil it's touch and goback to top
Love Blind
I'm a love blind, where are you taking me this time
Can't you see that I'm love blind
Where are you taking me now
Ooh-I'm a love blind, how far are you taking me this time
Can't you see that I'm love blind

You wanna take it all but you get nothing in the end
Don't ever underestimate the price of love you lend
It'll cost you so much pain, it can drive you round the bend
If you calculate the damage, the fractures never mend
When you're love blind, love blind

I'm a love blind, where are you taking me this time
Can't you see I'm in rewind
Where are you taking me now

I'm a love blind, where are you taking me, this time
Just can't believe, that I'm love blind
Where are you taking me now
Ooh-I'm a love blind, how far are you taking me, this time
Why can't you see, that I'm love blind

You think you got it made but you've got it all to learn
You just can't seem to realize you own the love you earn
You wanna take it all give back nothin' in return
You sre beyond reflection, you see the edges burn
Til you're love blind, love blindback to top
Step Aside
Walking down the street last night
I struck a light
But no one could have seen me without second sight
Taking flight
Handle me with care I'm dynamite

Looking for some place to hide
A voice inside
Said leave this boy alone so you can take a ride
Step aside
If you take me for a fool I'm cyanide

Just like a raging storm
No one can break the fall
They're trying to take us over
Our backs are against the wall

I try and turn my face away
But that's OK
Cos one way or another you may find that it will ricochet
Anyway
They say every dog will have his day

Just like a raging storm
No one can break the fall
They're trying to take us over
But our backs are against the wall

Standing next to heaven's gate
Just can't relate
Unable to remember who was on the slate
Get it straight
Before it gets too hard to operateback to top
Lay Down Your Guns
Lay down your guns I come in peace
No need to run my friend into the trees
We've been through this so much before
But still we get it wrong
Lay down your guns and feel no regret
Life is too short my friend, best we forget
No matter how we rise and fall
And how our love is torn
We'll stand up high above the storm.

And still our passion calls
And the juices fall like rain from the sky
We have to understand we're the flame
That feeds our desire
God knows we must survive

Lay down your guns and hold on tight
We'll prove the world is wrong and get it rigt
No need for you to worry now the best is yet to come
Lay down your guns and stand up strong

And though the cut is deep
We can heal it, trust me and keep
Your spirits high
It should be easy now that we've talked it over
And God knows we have to try

Lay down your guns just don't say goodnight
We'll prove the world is wrong, and get it right
And even in your darkest dreams
Some things you can't forsee
Lay down your love, lay it all on meback to top
