The Nile
Woke up into a dream
And I was walking
Up and down the streets
Of cairo

And then I heard a voice
That said I know you
It's time for you to turn
And face me

Her hair was long
Her eyes reached out and touched me
She said I know just
What it is you're after

Death is all around you
So you look for freedom
I know where to find it
Let's go to the river

We sailed upon the nile
I was enchanted
By the beauty in her magic
She showed me that my fears were unimportant
And then she touched me
With her vision

Her skin was dark
Her voice was liquid fire
She said I am your mate
And soul's desire

Love is all around you
Light is deep within you
Life is always flowing
Let's go down the riverback to top
Hold On
Don't rush me just this once
I want to make this moment last
Slow down the pace, there's no hurry
I can't let another pass me by again
Let me be the one to say when I've had enough

Just let me close my eyes, memorize
The way things are this minute
So when you're gone I can go on
If memory can hold within it what I'm feeling
Should time try fading or stealing something away

Chorus:
Hold on, nothing's the same
Tell me why I feel this way
Life wouldn't be worth living without you
All along I've been the pretender
But now that's gone forever
Nobody's ever loved me like you do
Nobody's broken through

Got to concentrate, file away
Every last detail
Don't want to lost what's going down
I want to remember everything I'm feeling
Should time try fading or stealing something away

Chorusback to top
Night Hunting Time
Drunk all the whiskey
But I still can't get no rest
Brain trapped on a roller coaster
Got a pain in my chest
Cold water on my eyeballs
Send a shiver up my spine
Hit the street in the wee wee hours
This is the night hunting time

Chorus:
Don't know what I'm doing here
Don't know what I'm doing here
Got to get my senses clear

Stumble in off the footpath
Heard the sounds from below
Get accustomed to the darkness
Got to take it real slow
Sweat streamin' down my cheekbones
Smoke stingin' my eyes
Walls drippin' like the jungle
But this ain't no paradise

Chorus

Stumble up to the counter
Catch the tension in the air
Black sabbath drive a young boy crazy
This ain't no frivolous affair
Young girl sipping pernod
Budy hunger in her glance
No stoppin' when it comes to doin'
The heavy metal romance

Chorusback to top
Nowhere to Run
Night ain't a friend
It's black and so still
It waits like a cat
Then moves in for the kill
It casts it's shadows high on the wall
It's givin' me no peace at all
Now you're gone
The pain goes on
You're so deep into me
Now I'm begging you to
Set me free

Chorus:
I've got nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
No way to stop
This hurt deep inside
That you gave to me
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run

The sound of your voice
It comes in the night
It stays with me there
Until the light
When you say the words
That you said before

When you said you'd stay
You walked out the door
I can take the afternoon
But then comes the night
Instead I walk the floor
Till the light

Chorus (twice)back to top
Oxun (Oshn)
When I was a young boy
I was raised in africa
In a little village
Deep in the heart of kenya
I remember one time
I was outside hunting game
When I heard the thunder
Of a storm that frightened me

Suddenly
All around me darkness
And I could feel
Something evil near me
Closing in
So I started running
I tried to hide
But it overcame me

I became a prisoner of
The spell that entered me
And the same thing happened
To my friends and family
In the yeart that followed
Drought and famine filled the land
Many days of sorrow
Endless nights of burning pain

Suddenly
A light appeared before me
And I could see
The virgin shining on me
And in her arms
Was the child inside me
And I could feel
Everlasting freedom all around meback to top
Body Surfing
Took a walk, down by the ocean
I was alone, nothing on my mind
As I stood there, I saw the devotion
That the surf had with the shore
Suddenly
I felt this emotion, of the sea
Pulling me

Chorus:
Big kahuna, tide was high
I began bodysurfing for my life

Ecstasy, sky and the sea
Embracing me
Golden sun on my face
Giving life to me

Unafraid I let go
Trusting in the deep blue sea
We became one with each other
Watching the tide as it drifts away

Chorus

I spoke to me daddy
Said to me, son
You got to go find a job
And bring some money into the family
For your mommy and me

I say, daddy, me want to go to the seashore
And bodysurf all day long
Me no wanna work
Me wanna play
Me wanna bodysurf all day
Me told him
Me wanna go bodysurfing
Me tell him
Me tell him
No, me wanna goback to top
What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)
What does it take
To win your love for me
How can I make
This dream come true for me
Ooh I just got to know
Oh baby cause I love you so


I tried I tried I tried I tried
Every way I could
To make you see how much I love you
I thought you understood


Oh, I gotta make you see
What does it take to win
Your love for me


REPEATback to top
Let Me Inside
Well, hello, what's your name
Can I take you by the hand
Won't you please come with me
To a place of ecstasy
Paradise by the sun
Girl, I'm sure we'll have some fun
By your eyes I can see
That you want to be with me
I've been waiting for so long
Now that I've found you
Ain't no way I'm gonna let you go

Chorus:
Let me inside
Open up your heart
Come on and
Let me inside
Open up your heart

Night is clear, moon is bright
Stars are shining everywhere
In my arms you'll be safe
There's no need to be afraid
It's a warm summer night
And the temperature is right
Let your hair hang low
Girl, I want to feel the flow
I've been waiting for so long
Now that I've got you
Ain't no way I'm gonna let you go
