Look out for the warning sign Now itís up to you Thereís a mighty eight point six Waiting in the ground When she opens up This world will humble to the sound There is only one real power Creating life by the hour See the universal wheels See the universal wheels See the universal wheels Go round ní round ní round ... FEAR OF FALLING FALSE TRUST Iíve been standing here Waiting for you But I donít quite know What Iím gonna do So I drag my heels and I scratch the dust And I rub my hands So I can feel my blood I see the rain clouds forming The dream is disappearing And I need it more than you But youíve got the power with you You told me lies to protect the truth But you wonít admit What you’re really gonna do So you hold me to ransom Every chance you get And you tie me down So Iím a broken man I see the future fading The dream is disappearing And I need it more than you But youíve got the power with you Your words are out of touch But they donít help me much ĎCause I fear the fear of falling You seem to hear no warning Your words are out of touch This dream wonít come to much ĎCause I fear the fear of falling Why canít you hear me calling Forever calling You change the rules The colour of your skin And then slam the door So I canít reach in Iíve tried so hard to be heard So you think you know it all But Iíll steal the last word Iíve watched the daylight fading The dream is disappearing And I need it more than you But youíve got the power with you Your words are out of touch But they donít help me much ĎCause I fear the fear of falling You seem to hear no warning Your words are out of touch Your dream wonít come to much ĎCause I fear the fear of falling Why canít you hear my warning Your words are out of touch This dream wonít come to much ĎCause I fear the fear of falling Donít you hear my warning Your words are out of touch This dream wonít come to much ĎCause I fear the fear of falling Donít you hear me calling The dream is disappearing ĎCause youíve got The power with you So here we are This dream has gone too far ...
SPIRIT OF FREEDOM REALISING THE NEW WORLD I know instinctively When something is right With no one there to save me You came into my life The words you whispered Still echo in my mind Forget about tomorrow Forget about time So good to be alive and touch The spirit of freedom - in your soul So good to breathe the air and Feel that life is worth living Thereís no time to waste in this life Thereís no time at all So good to see the truth and touch The spirit of freedom I never thought that I could ever feel this way To see the warmest sunlight On a cold and rainy day Dawn wakes the silence And I know that I canít wait To hear the words I wanna say again and again So good to be alive and touch The spirit of freedom - in your soul So good to breathe the air and Feel that life is worth living Thereís no time to waste in this life Thereís no time at all Thereís no time to waste in this life Thereís no time at all So good to be alive and touch The spirit of freedom - in your soul So good to breathe the air and Feel that life is worth living Thereís no time to waste in this life Thereís no time at all So good to be alive and touch The spirit of freedom - in your soul LOGICAL PROGRESSION NEW PERCEPTIONS You say her love has gone forever And something has Gone from your soul Itís left you so cold Though you wish You had the answer The question is always untold Always on hold Whatís in the mirror What do you see Itís a logical progression When you think that You lost all that time Itís all in your mind Whatís in the mirror What do you see Lay down now and close your eyes Itís only just begun ĎCause mind and body Flow in perpetual motion Set free all your memories Theyíre tearing you apart ĎCause you know that Love is the only direction That reputation that you live by Says something about whatís inside Nowhere to hide There is no amount of heartache That could ever Wash over this burning Forever learning Look in the mirror Will you do it all again You got time on your side You know youíll find The truth within you You got time on your side As the seconds tick away Love is waiting for you You got time on your side You say her love has gone forever And the image has left you so cold Still in your soul Thereís no way Youíre gonna turn back Youíll never wash over this burning Forever learning Look in the mirror Will you do it all again Lay down now and close your eyes Itís only just begun ĎCause mind and body Flow in perpetual motion You got time on your side As the seconds tick away Love is waiting for you LOVE IN SILENCE KNOW YOURSELF This is our world, our future These are our times I believe we have to see In silence thereís no mystery The world is so busy talking What do they know Theyíre missing out on being alive Words are turning into lies Weíre looking for love to guide us What do we know The truth is never to be told Itís waiting there inside your soul The innocent join In fighting so easily In a world of pain and war Who knows what theyíre fighting for What theyíre fighting for Oh, what theyíre fighting for What theyíre fighting for Many rivers running out to sea One heart with a cry for love Many dreamers in a moonlit sky One sigh and they are gone Love is the only direction That leads to truth Knowing in your heart whatís right Youíll walk upon the sea of light Thereís something In love and silence That you can find Know yourself and all around Listen to the only sound WORDS IN THE DISTANCE LOVE AWARENESS Dancind with danger and Tears in my eyes Love ainít no stranger So many goodbyes Words in the distance Are calling me Just when I thought I could make a a new start Here comes another fire Burning in my heart Words in the distance Are calling me And to get to heaven You gotta go through hell I cut my heart on the wishing well You know that Iím crazy Iím just a fool To say I love I love I love you You know that Iím crazy, just a fool To say I love I love I love you My senses burning from The heat of your skin Deeper than deep I feel you moviní in, oh Words in the distance Are calling me You know that Iím crazy Iím just a fool To say I love I love I love you, well You know that Iím crazy, just a fool To say I love I love I love you I love you I hold this moment of magic I hold it in my hand A single moment of heaven Donít you know that Iím crazy Iím just a fool To say I love I love I

fire in my soul I donít know which way to go Or I donít know what to do, no FIRES OF HELL (Your Only Son) THE FUTILITY OF WAR Oh, I was born your only son And I will think of you Before this day is done The fires of hell surround me now So I must fight for freedom Against their raging guns In all my life I never said How much I loved you In all this time I never really said I cared This war is wrong and so I write these words Before I give my life to the Somme In all my life I never said How much I loved you In all this time I never really knew you The fires of hell surround me, oh The guns of hell will Take my breath away From my life this day The fires of hell surround me, oh The words I say Must never disappear Keep them locked inside your heart I can hear the piperís song And it will play for me Before this day is done So I will hold my head up high If I must give my life To stop their raging guns Oh, I was born your only son And I thank god for that and That that will be done DREAM ON BEING, IN LOVE Been travelling this road for so long My eyes are tired but I carry on The sun lays down its golden threads I need a place to rest my head Although I am far from home now My soulís with you Itís hard to be out here on my own So far away, so far from home I need to touch and feel your skin To live this dream in sleep again Although I am far from home now My soulís with you So dream on, dream on Freedom comes with timeless sleep Dream on, dream on In the arms of night Your silent shadow gently speaks Dream on, dream on This hotel roomís a lonely place Itís a one night cell I must escape So I drink away my loneliness So I can sleep and dream again Although I am far from home now My soulís with you And as I fall into The darkness of the night You come to rescue me to Shield me in your light I feel your touch The softness of your skin You hold me close before The day breaks in This dreamís so true My heart it beats, it beats It beats for you, for you Although I am far from home now My soulís with you So dream on, dream on Freedom comes with timeless sleep Dream on, dream on In the arms of night Your silent shadow gently speaks So dream on, dream on Dream on, dream on So dream on, dream on Dream on
