To the Moon & Back
She's taking her time making up
The reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smile
And the look in their eyes
Everyone's got a theory about the
Bitter one
They're saying mamma never loved
Her much
And daddy never keeps in touch
That's why she shies away from
Human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right
Kind of pilot to come
And she'll say to him
She's saying

Chorus

I would fly to the moon and back if
You'll be
If you'll be my baby
Got a ticket for a world where we
Belong
So would you be my baby

She can't remember a time when she
Felt needed
If love was red then she was colour
Blind
All her friends they've been tried for
Treason
And crimes that were never defined
She's saying love is like a barren
Place
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just don't have a
Map for
So baby's gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she's hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream
Just saying

Chorus

Hold on hold on

Mamma never loved her much
And daddy never keeps in touch
That's why she shies away from
Human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right
Kind of pilot to come
And she'll say to him
Just saying

I Want You
Anytime I need to see your face
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
Your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
In the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic a cherry cola

I don't need to try and explain
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again I might move
So slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
Of the human cannonball
That I need to I want to

Come stand a little bit closer
Breath in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you
When I get to you

Chorus

Ooh I want you
I don't know if I need you
But ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you
I don't know if I need you
But ooh I'd die to find out

I'm the kind of person who endorses
A deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect
Is what I live for
But a look then a smell of perfume
It's like I'm down on the floor
And I don't know what I'm in for

Conversation has a time and place
In the interaction of a lover and
A mate
But the time of talking
Using symbols using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver
Who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you
When I get to you

Chorus

Anytime I need to see your face
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
Your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
In the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic a cherry cola

I don't need to try and explain
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again I might move
So slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
Of the human cannonball
That I need to I want to

Chorus

Truly Madly Deeply
I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do
I will be strong I will be faithful
'cause I'm counting on

A new beginning
A reason for living
A deeper meaning yeah

Chorus
I want to stand with you on
A mountain
I want to bath with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining
Brightly in the velvet sky
I'll make a wish send it to heaven
Then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the
Pleasure in the certainty
That we're surrounded by the
Comfort and protection of

The highest powers
In lonely hours
The tears devour you

Chorus

Oh can you see it baby
You don't have to close your eyes
'cause it's standing right here
Before you
All that you need with surely come

I'll be your dream I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do

Chorus

I want to stand with you on a
Mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to live like this forever
Until the sky falls down on meback to top
Tears of Pearls
And we stare each other down
Like vicitms in the grind
Probing all the weakness
And hurt still left behind and we cry
The tears of pearls
We do it oh we do it

Is love really the tragedy the way you
Might describe
Or would a thousand lovers
Still leave you cold inside
Make you cry
These tears of pearls

Chorus
All these mixed emotions we
Keep locked away like stolen pearls
Stolen pearl devotions we
Keep locked away from all the world

Your kisses are like pearls
So different and so rare
But anger stole the jewels away
And love has left you bare
Made you cry
These tears of pearls

Well I could be the tired joker
Pour my heart to get you in
Sacrifice my happiness
Just so I could win
Maybe cry
These tears of pearls

Chorus

We twist and turn where angels burn
Like fallen soldiers we will learn
That once forgotten twice removed
Love will be the death
The death of you

Repeat chorusback to top
Universe
Well I want to take you as I find you
Imagine our clothes are on the floor
Feel my caress so soft and gentle
So delicate you cry for more
But you know baby
You know baby does it right
And you know baby does it right

Chorus
Universe inside of your heart
You gotta let me know
So you can be free baby
You wanted it so much
And now that it's over
You don't know what you want

Put time in a capsule
Two minds consensual
Entwined to perfection
If we could

Cuddle up close
Lay on my chest now
Listen my heart beat's coming down
If you get tired you close your
Eyes now
When you wake up I won't be found
'cause I know baby
I know you're the nervous kind
With so much going on in your mind

Chorus

But let me tell you that this time
I'm gonna make you mine
I won't let you go
'cause I know this time
I'm gonna make sure I look out
For me

'cause you know baby
Well you know baby does it right
And you know baby does it right
You will only end up lost in loneliness
And wake up with the words already
On your lips
So I'll let you go baby
So I'll let you go

Carry on Dancing
The moonlight
Shines down interstellar beams
And the groove tonight
Is something more than you've ever seen
The stars and planets taking shape
A stolen kiss has come too late

In the moonlight
Carry on keep romancing
Carry on carry on dancing
In the moonlight
Carry on keep romancing
Carry on carry on dancing

You're never safe 'till you see the dawn
And if the clock strikes past midnight
The hope is gone
To move under

In the moonlight
Carry on keep romancing
Carry on carry on dancing
In the moonlight
Carry on keep romancing
Carry on carry on dancing

Move closer passion stronger

There's a magic only two can tell
In the dark night
Ultra violet is a wicked spell
The stars and planets taking shape
A stolen kiss has come to late

In the moonlight
Carry on keep romancing
Carry on carry on dancing
In the moonlight
Carry on keep romancing
Carry on carry on dancing

Moving on moving all nightback to top
Violet
If there's a way that you could
Be everything you want to be
Would you complain that it came too easy
Just like the games with you and me
A resolution hard to see
But that's o k 'cause I don't
See things that are plain to see

I've got a dream to take you over
Exploding like a supernova
I'm gonna crash into your world
And that's no lie

You want to give ecstacy delivered
With certainty
But you're afraid that the pleasure
Won't be needed
In a way we're the same two people
Looking out to sea
For a wave that would carry all our
Fantasies

If there's a way to infiltrate you
Sway your mind and complicate you
I'm gonna crash into your world
And that's no lie

Let your body move into the doorway
To the disco inside your head violet
Wear a color that you want to cling to
The color inside your head violet

Contemplate jealously intermixed
With urgency
A million things take a damned
Good shot at you and me

If there's a way to infiltrate you
Sway your mind and complicate you
I'm gonna crash into your world
And that's no lie

Let your body move into the doorway
To the disco inside your head violet
Wear a color that you want to cling to
The color inside your head violet

Dance to the disco dance to the disco
Dance to the disco dance to the disco

I'm gonna take you
I'll do my best to break you
I'm gonna take you higher
And that's no lie

Common sense is a game many
People don't like to play
But give it in and the moment takes
You either way

I've got a dream to take you over
Exploding like a supernova
I'm gonna crash into your world
And that's no lie

Let your body move into the doorway
To the disco inside your head violet
Wear a color that you want to cling to
The color inside your head violet

If there's a way that you could
Be everything you want to be
Would you complain that it came too easy
In a way we're the same two people
Looking out to sea
For a wave that would carry all our
Fantasiesback to top
Break Me Shake Me
I never thought I'd change my
Opinion again
But you moved me in a way that i've
Never known
You moved me in a way that i've
Never known

But straight away you just moved
Into position again
You abused me in a way that i've
Never known
You abused me in a way that i've
Never known

Chorus
So break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me
Take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone

So you're the kind who deals with the
Games in the mind
Well you confuse me in a way that
I've never known
You confuse me in a way that i've
Never known

Chorus

She says I can help you but what
Do you say
But it's not free baby you'll have
To pay
You just keep me contemplating that
Your soul is slowly fading

God don't you know that I live with a ton
Of regret
'cause I used to move you in a way that
You've never known
But then I accused you in a way that
You've never known
But you hurt me in a way that i've
Never known

Break me shake me hate me take
Me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone
So won't you break me shake me
Hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you
Will be alone

Listen baby
You'll be you'll be alone

Break me shake me hate me take
Me make me
Fake me break me shake me hate
Me take me

A Thousand Words
We stumble in a tangled web
Decaying friendships almost dead
And hide behind a mask of lies
We twist and turn and we avoid
All hope of salvage now devoid
I see the truth inside your eyes
So take all this noise into your brain
And send it back again
I'll bear the cost shed my skin call
You up and then
I'll say the words out loud

Chorus
You could resurrect a thousand
Words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the
Reasons why I don't need you
Anymore

Time manipulates your heart
Preconceptions torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind
But I won't go down on what I said
I won't retract convictions read
I may perplex but I'm not blind
So take all this noise into your brain
And send it back again
I'll bear the cost shed my skin call
You up and then
I'll say the words out loud

Chorus

I'll say the words out loud I'll say a
Thousand words or more

Manipulation fabrication
Conversation annihilation
I'll say a thousand words or more
Damnation frustration elevation
Procreation
I'll say a thousand words or more

Repeat chorusback to top
Promises
Well don't you know I need a
Little indulgence
Listen to the hunter becoming
Hunted
Every day there's a million advances
Don't be too forceful you'll ruin
Your chances
Well don't you know that time is a
Broken glass
That splinters against the wall
But the picture is coming back
Now baby
And I want to take it all

Chorus

Don't go making all these promises
You know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and a
Time to be the thief
'cause if you're making all these
Promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and
Your fallen king will end up alone

So let your body move a little
Bit closer
Silent like the sound proceeding
A cyclone
Don't you know that
Powerful thinking
Can be a force you don't want
To relinquish
Well don't you know that
They say that hanging on will justify
The wait
But patience and elated wisdom
Don't share a common phrase

Chorus

Well I'm only hanging on for what
Goes down
I'm floating high and my feet don't
Touch the ground
I'd take advantage but I can't see
Through this charade
So don't you don't go make it harder
Than hell
'cause when it comes down to
The making
You better be damned sure you can
Take it
Hey baby

Chorus

Time will be the thief
And your fallen king will end up
A fool a fool a lonely sorry fool
Oh baby 'cause I told you babyback to top
Santa Monica
In santa monica in the winter time
The lazy streets so undemanding
I walk into the crowd
In santa monica you get your
Coffee from
The coolest places on the
Promenade
Where people dress just so
Beauty so unavoidable everywhere
You turn
It's there I sit and wonder what am i
Doing here

But on the telephone line i
Am anyone
I am anything I want to be
I could be a super model or
Norman mailer
And you wouldn't know the
Difference
Or would you

In santa monica all the people got
Modern names
Like jake or mandy
And modern bodies too
In santa monica on the boulevard
You'll have to dodge those
In line skaters
Or they'll knock you down
I never felt so lonely
Never felt so out of place
I never wanted something more
Than this

But on the telephone line i
Am anyone
I am anything I want to be
I could be a super model or
Norman mailer
And you wouldn't know the
Difference
On the telephone line I am
Any height
I am any age I want to be
I could be a caped crusader or
Space invader
And you wouldn't know
The difference
Or would you
