For Your Own Good
For your own good
Call me tonight
Don't you think you should
Call me tonight

Life isn't easy
So why don't you stay
With the lover you need
And not the devil you pay
For your own good
Call me tonight

For your own good
Call me tonight
Don't you think I could
Make a difference tonight
When you need a lover
And it's so cold outside
I could help you recover
From the pain that you hide

Life isn't easy
So why don't you stay
With the lover you need
And not the devil you pay
For your own good
Call me tonight

Come on call me

Call me tonight
I'll make you feel good
Come on, call me
Come on, call me
Call me tonight
I'll make you feel good
Want your body
Want your body

Come on call me
Come on call me

For your own good

Closer To Heaven
Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away
Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away

Give me hope
Give me all your love
Tell me now
You're coming home tonight
Have some faith
In the love we share
Is it fate
Does darkness end in light

Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away
Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away

Where'd you go
Did you loose your way
Tell me now you're coming back to stay
In my hopes
Paradise is real
Horoscopes
Can't forecast how we'll feel

Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away
Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away

Give me hope
Give me hope

Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away
Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away

Give me hope
Give me hopeback to top
I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore
Did you get what you want
Do you know what it is
Do you care
Is he better than me
Was it your place or his
Who was there
Did you think it was wrong
Do you find that it's worse than it was
Has it gone on too long
Do you mind that it hurts me because
You're breaking my heart

Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore
Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore

You're breaking my heart

Was it cracking the code
Or just filling in time
Was that all
So then why'd you go back
To the scene of the crime
Did he call
Shall I take the blame
Or another assault on how it was
Then we'll get to the fact
That it's always my fault just because
You're breaking my heart

Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore
Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore
Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore
Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore

You're breaking my heart

Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore
Don't know what you want but I can't give it anymore

Don't know what you want
Don't know what you wantback to top
Happiness Is An Option
It is not easy
It is not easy

Looking from a window
At the edge of a house
At the edge of a town
It's grey like the day
When I lost it
Clouds overhead
I talked to a flower
That was almost dead
My body a prison
Why did I do it
Someone want me not to
But I still went through it

(living it upside, you gotta remember, that happiness is an option)
It is not easy
But don't give up now
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option
(but happiness is an option)

Needed somewhere to clear my head
Find some strength a warmer bed
Maximum love in a minimal world
I'd never achieved it
But then I believed it
So when I lost it - how
I'm not sure - now
It was a strange feeling
Like a law repealing itself

It is not easy
But don't give up now
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option
(but happiness is an option)
It is not easy
But don't give up now
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option
(giving it up, if you are giving it up, if you are giving it up)

I can wake up in the morning
And not believe what I see
Look in a mirror and think
If that's really me
I don't think I suit my face
It's not a catastrophe
It's more a philosophy
Like the russians wondering why
We're born under a blue sky
But die in a dark forest

It is not easy
But don't give up now
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option
(but happiness is an option)
It is not easy
But don't give up now
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option
(but happiness is an option)

This is neither old nor new
It's always forever
Somewhere between sense
And ambition
Pleasure and decision
We have to make a choice
What do we want
Everyone singing
'war, what is it good for? '
While planning the next one

I don't need to win
You don't have to loose
We can choose
Happiness is an option
(you can choose)

It is not easy
But don't give up now
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option
(chris: happiness is an option)

It is not easy
(no, it is not easy)
The war within us
(so war within us)
(so don't give up)
But it gets easier
(but it gets easier)
The more we learn
(the more we learn)
I don't need to win
(I don't need to win)
You don't have to loose
(you don't have to loose)
So don't give up
We can choose
Happiness is an option
(happiness is an option)
(chris: happiness is an option)

It is not easy
(no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
But don't give up now
(don't give up now)
(so don't give up)
It is not easy
(it is not easy)
Happiness is an option
(happiness is an option)
(if you are giving it up, if you are giving it up)
You don't have to loose
(you don't have to loose)
(if you are giving it up, you gotta remember)
We can choose happiness is an option
(we can choose happiness is an option)back to top
You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk
What a performance tonight
Should I react or turn off the light
Looks like you're picking a fight
In a blurring of wrong and right
But how your mood chances
You're a devil, now an angel
Suddenly subtle and solemn
And silent as a monk

You only tell me you love me
When you're drunk

It's better than nothing I suppose
Some doors have openend
Others closed
But I couldn't see you exposes
To the horrors behind some of those
Somebody said listen don't you know
What you're missing
You should be kissing him instead of
Dissing him like a punk

But you only tell me you love me
When you're drunk
You only tell me you love me
When you're drunk

All of my friends
Keep asking me why, oh why
Do you not say goodbye
If you don't even try you'll be sunk

'cause you only tell me you love me
When you're drunk

What's the meaning
When you speak with so much feeling
Is it over when you're sober
Is it junk

You only tell me you love me
When you're drunk
You only tell me you love me
When you're drunkback to top
Vampires
Brother it don't matter
Sister don't worry
Say what you like
I'll do what you want me to do
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too

Sun in the kitchen
Boy you're still sleeping
When you get hungry
I'll do what you want me to do
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too

Night in the city
New orleans pretty
Do what you want
And then can I do it to you
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too

It's a reflex
Just a reflex
Like fear or sex

Brother it don't matter
Sister don't worry
Say what you like
I'll do what you want me to do
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too
You're a vampire, I'm a vampire, too

Sister don't worry

Radiophonic
In the air
(radiophonic)
In the air
(radiophonic)
In the air

The night was long
Now the crowd has gone
There's sunlight on my bed
Feels like a radiophonic workshop's
Beaming straight into my head
I could make you weep
I can't get to sleep
There's ringing in my ears
Like a radiophonic workshop
Orchestrating all my stupid fears

(radiophonic)
I think I'm in love
(radiophonic)
(radiophonic)
I think I'm in love
(radiophonic)

In the air

My skin is itching
I'm totally twitching
With the pounding in my head
Like a dud sub-sonic beat-box
Booming bass under the bed
My hands are shaking
My mind is aching
With a feeling deep inside
That you've been staring
Sending signals
Every time our paths collide

I think I'm in love

The Only One
I think of you and wonder who
You are and what's your line
I wonder if there's someone else
Or if it's true that I'm the only one
In your life

I only worry for your own sake
I don't know much about the deals you make
There's so much that you hide from me
The mystery: am I the only one
The only one

(the only one, the only one, the only one)

I don't know you
You don't know me
I wonder what we share
It's just that now
And then you smile
And suddenly I know you care
And I'm the only one for a while
Though you have many reasons
To tell me a lie
I can't help believing
That I should be for you
And you for me the only one

(the ony one, the only one)

As enigmatic as you can be
I'm not suspicious naturally
There's so much that you hide from me
The mystery: am I the only one
In your life

Though you have many reasons
To tell me a lie
I can't help believing
That I should be for you
And you for me the only one

(the only one, the only one)
Wanne be the only one
(the only one, the only one, the only one, the only one)
Wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be,
Wanna be, wanna be the only one

Boy Strange
See boy strange on the horizon of love
He's calling to you
What do you say

See boy strange as an example of youth
So close to the truth but still far away

And he's such a strange boy
D'you think he'll make a good exchange for
The one before a closed door
That you left behind

When you realise that this boy is strange
It's too late to change your point of view
He's often there when the sun meets the sky
With a perfect alibi unlike you

And he's such a strange boy
D'you think he'll make a good exchange for
The one before a closed door
That you left behind

To talk of common sense is
A complete waste of time
His looks are a crime
Bound to commit

In the eyes of the world he's a borderline fool
Both naive and cruel
Why would you inflict him on you

And he's such a strange boy
D'you think he'll make a good exchange for
The one before a closed door
That you left behindback to top
In Denial
Neil:
In denial, no my life's a trial
I'm not denying that every
Little bit hurts
It's a problem that I'm not solving
Don't mind admitting
I feel like quitting this job
For a while getting away
Before it gets any worse today

Kylie:
You're in denial, and that is final
You're not admitting
You should be quitting all these
Queens and fairies
And muscle marys
The rough trade boyfriend
Who in his pathetic own way
Denies he's gay
Why can't you see
This is a fantasy world

Neil:
Think I'm going mad
How'd you know if you're going mad

Kylie:
Look at me I'm lonely

Neil:
Look at me I'm sad

I'm not denying
I could be trying
A little harder
To deal with some of this stuff

Kylie:
Know what I'm thinking
Less drugs and drinking
No cigarettes and you'd feel
A little less rough

Neil:
Is that enough
My life is absurd
I'm living it upside down
Like a vampire
Working at night and
Sleeping all day
A dad with a girl
Who knows he's gay

Both:
Can you love me anywayback to top
New York City Boy
When you're a boy
Some days are tough
Lying on your bad
Playing punk rock and stuff
Home is a boot camp
You gotta escape
Wanna go and wander
In the ticker-tape

You feel the deal is real
You're a new york city boy
So young, so run
Into new york city

New york city boy
You'll never have a bored day
'cause you're a new york city boy
Where seventh avenue meets broadway

The street is amazing
The hoochies unreal
Check out all the hardware
At the latest deal
Hear a song
That's the bomb
If you don't get the mix
It's got eighty-six

You feel the deal is real
You're in new york city

New york city boy
You'll never have a bored day
'cause you're a new york city boy
Where seventh avenue meets broadway
New york city boy
This is your reward day
'cause you're a new york city boy
Where seventh avenue meets broadway

Then as the evening falls
You can return it's calls

You feel the deal is real
You're a new york city boy
So young, so run
Into new york city

New york city boy
You'll never have a bored day
'cause you're a new york city boy
Where seventh avenue meets broadwayback to top
Footsteps
Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps

Whenever trouble comes around
Or lonely nights lead underground
And far in the dark
Abandoned cars suddenly start up
An anxious sound
As long as I hear your footsteps
In the dark that's all I need

Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps

When loneliness induces fear
Like waves against a
Ramshackle pier
When thunder and rain
Scar the windowpane once again
I want you near
As long as I hear your footsteps
In the dark that's all I need

I'm longing to see you
I want you, I need you

Like a child who feels afraid
Of the dark at night
Hoping to hear a gentle touch
Turning on a welcome light
As long as I hear your footsteps
In the dark that's all I need
As long as I hear your footsteps
In the dark that's all I need

Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footsteps
Footsteps in the dark
Only love will break your heart
Footsteps, footstepsback to top
