Sharon O'Neill - Lyrics


These lyrics are as close as I can get to the actual wording on Sharon's songs.
Some are taken from the printed lyrics in the album covers, but with changes made so they match what you hear on the tracks.
I don't yet have all the lyrics done, but there are still a lot here.
If you find any wording that is wrong, please E-mail Me: john (at) webpathways.com

Face In A Rainbow

Face in a rainbow
What does he see
As he cuts a line
Between you and me

Like the thunder blocks out the sun
Heís shades in his head to everyone
And the cloud and the red light
Itís so wonderful
In the burban
He lets starlight dance like tinkerbell
On his eyes
On his eyes..

So while we are sleeping
Heís alive and free
And dealing in some of things
Like honesty

When the mugger is on the run
Heíll be clocking in to help the system run
And he cries every time it rains
And he stays inside
With the women he swears
Will never leave his side
She is fair

Like the thunder blocks out the sun
Heís shades in his head to everyone
Like the thunder blocks out the sun
He will know

Like the thunder blocks out the sun
Heís shades in his head to everyone
Like the thunder blocks out the sun
He will know

Like the thunder blocks out the sun
Heís shades in his head to everyone
Like the thunder blocks out the sun
He will know
He will know
He will know

Luck's On Your Table

You can tell when a womanís lost her man
Sea runs out and leaves her there on the sand
You can feel what she feels in her mind
When she tries to remember back a long time
To when she was young and lusty
Fresh the wind
And her state was trusty
With eeth on her side
Oh how she could ride

And roll, roll the dice
On the table tonight
Many a players
Will be holding you tight
Pay up your pretty eyes
Cold as ice
Lucks on your table, tonight

Only you made out 21 years or so
getting all the answers to a man on the road
To be cheated with roses when the cards lay face down
And left for a pretty one when a man hit town

And only the strong of heart
Sit by till the end
She gotta run for her life
The shame of a lover
A woman run for cover

And roll, roll the dice
On the table, tonight
Many a players
Will be holding you tight
Pay up your pretty eyes
Cold as ice
Lucks on your table, tonight

And roll, roll the dice
On the table, tonight
Many a players
Will be holding you tight
Pay up your pretty eyes
Cold as ice
Lucks on your table, tonight

Another Man Fools You

If Iím not mistaken, I can see it in your eyes
I read you like a book
And I know what youíre thinking
How long itís taken me to realise
Oh babe, you got me hanging round on a string

And Iím, tired of making it up to you
And itís hard, to let a man see through you
And another man takes you
Where another man makes you
Cry like a baby
And another man fools you
Where another man rules you
Hard, because he loves you

All the rich women, with the diamonds in their eyes
Part their ruby lips, and smile with a cold heart
Iíve got love and itís waiting here for you baby
Tied up pretty like a birthday surprise

And Iím, tired of making it up to you
And itís hard, to let a man see through you
And another man takes you
Where another man makes you
Cry like a baby
And another man fools you
Where another man rules you
Hard, because he loves you

If only I could feel
If only time could heal
What youíre taking away from me
And another man takes you
Where another man makes you
Cry like a baby
And another man fools you
Where another man rules you
Hard, because he loves you

Falling To The Ground

When I think
Of my friends on the island
Tears come to my eyes
Iíve been trekkin down for so long yeah

And play hard
It takes my heart away
A little sleep
And a little kindness
And I grab the rising day

Oh, Iím falling to the ground
See if you can catch
See if you can catch me
Oh, Iím falling to the ground
See if you can catch
See if you can catch me

When I think
Of tender songs of pain
Out of tune and no way
Frozen chance and rainbow
Oh heaven
My friends on the island
Now donít you breathe a word
Cus Iím going back anyway

Oh, Iím falling to the ground
See if you can catch
See if you can catch me
Oh, Iím falling to the ground
See if you can catch
See if you can catch me

Falling falling..
Repeat..

Don't Send Your Love Away

The sun is surely melted overhead
Heís losing faith with every word she says
A fool that takes no collars, rains instead
It makes no sense cus the line is dead

Donít send
Donít send our love away
Itís in your eyes today
And all too soon can stray
No matter how hard you try
You can not be too sure
That your love is safe and good
Itís in your life to stay

He sees her Sunday, in the afternoon
She has no idea that it could be ending soon
He tells her heís got something
Woo heís gotta do it.
And leave her crying
For the whole day through

Donít send
Donít send your love away
Itís in your eyes today
And all too soon can stray
No matter how hard you try
You cannot be too sure
That your love is safe and good
Itís in your life to stay

Donít send
Donít send your love away
Itís in your eyes today
And all too soon can stray
No matter how hard you try
You cannot be too sure
That your love is safe and good
Itís in your life to stay

Donít send
Donít send your love away
Itís in your eyes today
And all too soon can stray
No matter how hard you try
You cannot be too sure

Waiting For You

Hey donít treat us like weíre too young for attention
Weíre just some girls out looking for adventure
We cut classes just to come here and be noticed
Thereís nothing else to do
So spend some time alone with us

My friend Julie lets me visit her at her house
Her daddyís rich, she drives his red Ferrari
But, Julieís mommyís never home, she like to tease him
Sheís so good, gets any man she wants to, any man she wants to

And we are wait wait waiting for you
We are wild if adjusted fools
People say we should be at school
But weíre waiting for you
Waiting for you
Huh

We like movies
We like rockíníroll and romance
We like anything that occupies our spare time
I like you car, so why donít we go driving
Phone New York and tell them weíre arriving
Tell them weíre arriving

And we are wait wait waiting for you
We are wild if adjusted fools
People say we should be at school
But weíre waiting for you
Waiting for you
Huh

We are wait wait waiting for you
We are wild if adjusted fools
People say we should be at school
But weíre waiting for you
Waiting for you
Huh

Sheís Gonna Hurt You

She looks like the pale moon
She slips through your fingers and out of the door
Just like lightning
You still crave to be touched by her once
And sometimes he even cries, I see it in your eyes

But, sheís gonna hurt you
Sheís gonna hurt you
Change you like she changes her shoes
Sheís gonna hurt you
Then sheíll desert you
And Iíll be here just waiting to hear the news

How come you follow her around?
Sheís staring me up and down
Never loves anyone for long
Youíre not what she needs!
And sheíll do the same to you
That you just did to me

And, sheís gonna hurt you
Sheís gonna hurt you
Change you like she changes her shoes
Sheís gonna hurt you
Then sheíll desert you
And Iíll be here just waiting to hear the news

We wonít have to fall for you baby
ĎCus well, sheís just gonna bring you down and
Leave you

And, sheís gonna hurt you
Sheís gonna hurt you
Change you like she changes her shoes
Sheís gonna hurt you
Then sheíll desert you
And Iíll be here just waiting to hear the news

And, sheís gonna hurt you
Sheís gonna hurt you
Change you like she changes her shoes
Sheís gonna hurt you
Then sheíll desert you
And Iíll be here just waiting to hear the news
Oh Iíll be waiting here..

Maybe

Maybe, you donít know me
And maybe, thatís why you hurt me
Words can cut so deep
They just get in the way

I thought you were so perfect
And you though Iíd stay forever
Well Maybe
If we just talked more, then maybe
It might have worked out for us
I moved my things out of here
Itís better that way
It was just the situation
We had different expectations

I thought you were so perfect
And you thought Iíd stay forever
Well maybe

And I thought you were so perfect
And you thought Iíd stay forever
And maybe, thatís where we went wrong
So wrong

Betcha

You turned me around
Leave me upside down
Honey, whatís the deal?
Do you want me to go or stay?
Well I donít know what to feel

And there you go again
Betcha, betch goiní to go to her now

Just when things are right, you stay out all night
You never let me know
Then you donít come around
And you never call up
Unless sheís not home

Now Iím out in the street
Out in the cold night
Trying to get things clear
ĎCus I found out about you
And you donít care

And there you go again
Betcha, betch goiní to go to her now
Betch, bet she still gets all your love

How do I treat this loves desire
Kill this burning fire

Betcha, betch goiní to go to her now
Betch, bet she still gets all your love
Betcha, betch goiní to go to her now
Betch, bet she still gets all your love

How do I, treat this loves desire
How do I, cool this burning fire

Long Distance From Singapore

That look in your eyes
Is a dead give away
You look so damn scared
He did this too you

He fixes you up
And sends to Asia
With all that money on you
He calls it a favour
But, heís only using you
And when heís done with you
Youíll turn around
And find the wrong people
Knocking at your door

Can you get away
While youíre still young
How long can you stay
On his love
Can you get away away away
Away away away away

Figure it out for yourself
When you bring the stuff in
And you cut it open
Cus you canít wait to try it

You keep calling me up
But hey, this phone might be tapped
You better hang up
Iíll call you right back

Can you get away
While youíre still young
How long can you stay
On his love
Can you get away away away
Away away away

Are you haunted every night
When someone takes you round
And squeezes you tight
Are you a slave to the one

Can you get away
While youíre still young
How long can you stay
On his love
Can you get away
While youíre still young
How long can you stay
On his love
Can you get away away away
Away away away

Can you get away
Can you get away

Street Boys

Buy your records
Play them to death
Go to your concerts
In light red
You look tall
You look larger than life
Some kind of guitar hero
Caught up in the light

You make the headlines in the magazines
And people hound you in your limosine
While we are stone cold
And illegally parked
Waiting all night
To hear you play in the dark

And the street boys
Make no noise
Thereís no trouble tonight
And the troopers make no plans
For the rest of the night
You were a street boy too

But now your photoís on the cover of Times
You are a victim of your very own crime
Well thatís fate
And thatís the price you pay
You could be still on the street
Like you were yesterday

And the street boys
Make no noise
Thereís no trouble tonight
And the troopers make no plans
For the rest of the night
But canít you listen too

And the street boys
Make no noise
Thereís no trouble tonight
And the troopers make no plans
For the rest of the night

And the street boys
Make no noise
Thereís no trouble tonight
And the troopers make no plans
For the rest of the night

You were a street boy too
We cannot listen to you
How does it feel to be you?

Any Time You Want

That same blue sea
Thatís always been
Close to the house
Where I live in
Itís getting to me
I watched you sail away
On the weekend
On Saturday

Oh, Iím goiní to be,
So alone now
No one to talk to,
No one to phone
But I understand,
What youíre goiní through
So the only thing,
I can say to you, is

You can come back again
Any time you want
Stay here as a friend
Anytime you want

That same blue sky
Thatís always been
Over the house
That I live in
Itís getting to me
I watched you fly away
On the weekend
Yesterday
Oh, Iím going to be
Waiting to hear now
Maybe youíll write
And let me know
How itís going for you
And anytime you need
Just pick up the phone
You know where Iíll be

And, you can come back again
Any time you want
Stay here as a friend
Anytime you want

And, you can come back again
Any time you want
You can, stay here as a friend
Anytime you want
Anytime you want
Anytime, that you want

Hold Me Again

If I stay with you one more night
I wonít want the sky to grow light
I think I know where I stand
Iím living on the edge of quicksand

Hold me again
Hold me again
Cus if you fly away
In the cold light of day
Who gonna
Hold me again
Hold me again
If youíre thinking goodbye
Oh darliní hold me again

I knew it shouldnít turn out right
And I guess I shouldnít be here tonight
But, I only have to touch your hand
And Iím living on the edge of quicksand
As long as we donít hurt each other
Itís too late to turn back now
And we canít hold out much longer, baby

Hold me again
Hold me again
Cus if you fly away
In the cold light of day
Who gonna
Hold me again
Ooh hold me again
If youíre thinking goodbye
Oh darliní hold me again

So wont you hold me again
Hold me again
And donít fly away
In the cold light of day
Just hold me again
Ooh hold me again
If youíre thinking goodbye
Oh darliní hold me again

For All The Tea In China

Is there a way out of here
Iíve got to escape from your ego
Youíre just a cruel puppeteer
Someone should take your dolls away

All these tears that fall
Theyíre just a vehicle for my emotions
So when you walk out of here
I aintí gonna cry you no oceans

For all the tea in China
I would not walk behind you
Youíd try to take me
Where I donít wanna go
All the tea in China
Isnít worth an hour with you

You got me, so confused
Iím running in every direction
Iíve had it up to here
With all of your dammed intentions

I donít want you here
I donít need hysteria
And you just spell trouble

For all the tea in China
I would not walk behind you
Youíd try to take me
Where I donít wanna go
All the tea in China
Isnít worth an hour with you baby
No .. way..

That supreme brand smoke
Doesnít fool me for a moment
And the brandy in your hand
When youíre coming to land
It doesnít cover the scar
Of what you really are
And thatís something
You are scared to show

For all the tea in China
I would not walk behind you
Youíd try to take me
Where I donít wanna go
All the tea in China
Isnít worth an hour with you

Repeat

I Donít Wanna Touch You

I got your address and phone number
But youíre never at home
Iíve seen you waiting for mail
But you donít drive alone
Iím glad your outa my life
But Iíll probably call you, tonight

Whoís occupying my place
In the passenger seat?
Where do you take her to love?
Where do you take her to eat?
Iím glad your outa my life
But Iíll probably call you, tonight

I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna ride in your car
No no I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna know how you are

I bet youíre taking her home
While Iím taking a cab
The way you drive her around
Is slowly driving me mad
Iím glad your outa my life
But Iíll probably call you, tonight

I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna ride in your car
No no I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna know how you are

I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna ride in your car
In your car

I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna ride in your car
No no I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna know how you are

I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna ride in your car
No I donít wanna touch you
I just wanna
In your car

Ride in your car
Take me for a ride in your car
Just wanna ride in your car

Asian Paradise

There's a strange white moon at my open window
There's a heat on the breeze tonight
I see the lights of the hotel burn in the trees
And I feel love is burning in me.
I am caught in the change of a tropical rainstorm
Out there between green and blue
And it's telling me that, you're so hard to forget
I'm a traveller just passing through

Asian paradise, you still haunt me
And it's so damn nice I can tell you
I feel you're burning in me
Asian paradise you still haunt me
I just close my eyes I can tell you
I feel your burning in me

Now the moon lays herself
Out on top of the water
She's as naked as we were born
And the satay and beer
Paralyses me here
And Iím feeling Iím already home
I am caught in the change of a tropical rainstorm
Out there between green and blue
And it's telling me that you're so hard to forget
I'm a traveller just passing through

Asian paradise, you still haunt me
I just close my eyes I can tell you
I feel your burning in me
Asian paradise you still haunt me
I just close my eyes I can tell you that
I feel your burning in me

Asian paradise, you still haunt me
And it's so damn nice I can tell you
I feel you're burning in me

Danger


There are figures standing
Talking only when the lights go down
Secretively planning
Don't they know I can hear every sound

I think I'm in danger
Of losing my grip and falling
Danger, talking is cheap and so are...
Words said in anger
But I'll have to face it one day
It's just a matter of time

Well maybe I'm too fragile
Huh, I bet she's gonna leave her mark on him
But party talkin' always dies down
And she'll just throw him back to sink or swim

I think I'm in danger
Of losing my grip and falling
Danger, talking is cheap and so are...
Words said in anger
But I'll have to face it one day
It's just a matter of time

Who knows why it happens the way it does,
Who can tell? I thought we both turned on one axis
But it seems like we weren't noticing it that much
Who can tell, who can tell?

I think I'm in danger
Of losing my grip and falling
Danger, talking is cheap and so are...
Words said in anger
But I'll have to face it one day
It's just a matter of time

Maxine


Creases in your white dress
Bruises on your bare skin
Looks like another fine mess
You've got yourself into

What's the matter with you?
Has the cat got your tongue?
Well if you don't like the beat
Then don't play with the drum

Maxine, you're not the only one
To take the whole world on
But no one's ever won
Maxine, Case 1352
A red and green tattoo
Eyes cold steel blue

On a rain-slicked avenue
Long shadows in the night
Take off your spike-heeled shoes
You've got to run for your life

Razor blade in your pocket
From an ex-marine
Makes you speed like a rocket
Ooh, it cuts so clean

Maxine, you're not the only one
To take the whole world on
But no one's ever won
Maxine, Case 1352
A red and green tattoo
Eyes cold steel blue

How come you're payin' for borrowed time
Starin' out into space?
Bad boys and cold comfort
And a smacked-up face

Maxine, you're not the only one
To take the whole world on
But no one's ever won
Maxine, Case 1352
A red and green tattoo
Eyes cold steel blue

Who's that walking, walking behind you, who's that
talking, talking about you
Who's that walking, walking with you MaxineÖ?

One Of A Crowd


You're so impressed by her dark brown eyes
Angelic way she laughs, to cover up those lies
See Ronny she doesn't care
And she won't always be there
She's the restless one

Another fight but you lose again
And so she overnights with someone else in the band
But when she walks through that door
You'll be mailed to the floor
You're not the only one

And when she takes a new Romeo
It's obvious you'll be the last to know

You're just one of a crowd
She's just playing around with you
You don't figure at all in her life
Unless she needs you to

Radio Lover


Stranger on my station
Talking to me from my radio
He won't leave me alone
He's got me addicted to his tone

Don't know if I'm alive
Until the volume's on
Does he even know
I'm here
From midnight until dawn?

I need my radio lover
I don't know if I'll ever see my
Radio lover

Undercover he's
Spying on me through my radio
Each time I turn back
Carefully he circles then attacks

Don't know if I am well
I've lost my appetite
I can't sleep without him on
Every single night

I need my radio lover
I don't know if I'll ever see my
Radio lover

I called him up on drive-time
He said I wasn't the only girl on the line
Well Mr Cool, for your information
I'm gonna tune in to another station

I tried to adjust the dial
But something's going on
I could swear you said my name
Before you played that song

You're still my radio lover
I don't know if I'll ever see my
Radio lover
I need my radio lover
I don't know if I'll ever see my
Radio lover

Kids In Your Town


Single and sensuous
She was lookin' for Mr Right
To take her away forever
And hold her all through the night
Drivin' in a beat-up car
He was runnin' away from home
Easily wired and burning inside
He was aimin' for anyone

That's how it was with the kids in our town
Hungry for somethin' it seems we never found
That's how it was with the kids in our town
But we went out in style
We were strong with desire

Davey was a smart-arsed kid
From a suburb out west
Sue was a waitress, but it was hopeless
She couldn't fit in with the rest
He jumped, but no one questions
The sadly missed
Susan became a child of God
'Cos she knew she would never get kissed

That's how it was with the kids in our town
Hungry for somethin' it seems we never found
That's how it was with the kids in our town
But we went out in style
We were strong with desire

I joined a rock 'n roll band
Back in '72
Worldly dreams, so out of reach
And I'm still seeing them through
My house is still by the sea
And I still go back there
'Cos nothing changes but everything changes
And you don't find that anywhere

That's how it was with the kids in our town
Hungry for somethin' it seems we never found
That's how it was with the kids in our town
But we went out in style
We were strong with desire

Losing You


Everyone thinks I'm just,
Way too suspicious, 'cos nothing's wrong
Everyone thinks I see things
That aren't even there
ButÖI've watched you stalking her
I've seen you weaken to her scent on the wind
Do you think I don't know
The minute I look in your eyes?

I'm losing you, looks like I'm losing
I'm losing you, looks like I'm losing
You're almost out of sight

So what I better do's
Devise a system to keep you at home
Or maybe I'll change my makeup and cut off my hair
You know if looks could kill,
I'd be a criminal, they'd put me away
And she's be the one
You're thinking about tonight

I'm losing you, looks like I'm losing
I'm losing you, looks like I'm losing
You're almost out of sight

Idle rumours, never should survive
So then how come, something's keeping these alive?

I'm losing you, looks like I'm losing
I'm losing you, looks like I'm losing


I've Got You To Thank

I've been wonderin' where you're hangin' 'round
Wish you'd left a forwarding address
Now I'm stuck here cleaning up
'Cos you left everything in such a mess

It's not that I care, 'cos I'll get over you
I just want to know where to send your mail on to

I've got you to thank for feeling this way
And you wont even miss me now you've gone
I've got you to thank, for feeling this way
And you wont even miss me

I've been takin' on the 'phone tonight
Calling all your friends to track you down
Seems you kept them in the dark
Either that or you've cleared out of town

It's not that I care, 'cos I'll get over you
I just want to know where to send your mail on to

I've got you to thank for feeling this way
And you wont even miss me now you've gone
I've got you to thank, for feeling this way
And you wont even miss me

I just wanna return your things
It wont take up much of your time
And I promise I wont try anything
To make you change your mind

I've got you to thank for feeling this way
And you wont even miss me now you've gone
I've got you to thank, for feeling this way
And you wont even miss me

Take The Fall


I've never been this close
To something I can't have
I've never been so wounded
By anyone I've meet

I should have seen it coming
There was no doubt
Maybe I tried too hard
To make it work out

It's about time I learned how to take the fall
Put the weight on my shoulders, once and for all
But I don't wanna be alone tonight
I wish I'd never let him out of sight
It's about time I learned how to take the fall

Now that you've gone I notice
All the shadows in the hall
I hate to pick up the 'phone now
'Cos you're never gonna call

So many empty nights
Too much unfilled space
I should have seen love staring
Into my face

It's about time I learned how to take the fall
Put the weight on my shoulders, once and for all
But I don't wanna be alone tonight
I wish I'd never let him out of sight
It's about time I learned how to take the fall

It's about time I learned how to take the fall
Put the weight on my shoulders, once and for allÖ

Hearts On The Run


Moving targets
Wrong place wrong time
No reason at all
Other than flying blind

Alone in the night
With so little time
Too much is enough
For partners in crime
We're not total strangers
But we're not total strangers
But we're hearts on the run

First impression
No taste no style
Just the power of suggestion
Hidden behind the smile

Leaves us alone in the dark
We talk in a whisper
No privacy just
The cost of forever
No possible way out
For hearts on the run

We might lose it
But the feeling is strong
There's not a trace of regret in our eyes
And what we've done
Sometimes, the rain just pours down
For hearts on the run

We might lose it
But the feeling is strong
There's not a trace of regret in our eyes
And what we've done
Sometimes, the rain just pours down
For hearts on the run

Hearts, on the run
Hearts, on the runÖ

All The Way Down


The rig is comin' down
The roadies pack away the ound
Take a shot of something strong
To load to, anything at all

She gets looked up and down
Is she the singer or is she just hangin' 'round
Holding out for someone somewhere
Somehow, anyone at all

She won't be alone tonight
Once again, it's time to put out the light
But she's out of her depth this time
Seems they all want to break her
It seems they intend to take her
All the way down

Smash Palace

The nights are tight but they donít feel right,
I guess itís just that time of year
We sip cold beer behind closed doors
ĎCos we donít welcome strangers around here

The local cop is nonchalant
Well he shoots pool, but he gets fooled
íCos he really doesnít care
Itís about time something criminal happened
To shake up the whole affair

Weíve always lived inside of a
Smash Palace
With broken dreams that never mend
And cold grey metal steals the sun.
Takes it down roads that have no end.

Well you know itís hardly paradise
Itís a cold town, you can break down,
But youíll never break clear.
There isnít any way that youíre ever gonna get out
So take those tears out of here.

Weíve always lived inside of a
Smash Palace
With broken dreams that never mend
And cold grey metal steals the sun.
Takes it down roads that have no end.

Jaqui's Theme

This sweet emotion
It flickers on and off
Like stars do in the night
With you, I just don't know where I stand
Your eyes hit mine
And I don't know where I am.

If you would give love
Only to me
It would be beautiful
And you would have
a hold on my heart
If I had the choice
Of where to be
It would be here forever
Close to you, hold on love, hold on love

You're love's a river
And I'm aware of just
how cold it's heart can be
So you run, to try escaping from me
But I won't hold you, if you don't want to be.

If you would give love
Only to me
It would be beautiful
And you would have
a hold on my heart
If I had the choice
Of where to be
It would be here forever
Close to you, hold on love, hold on love

Don't Say I'm Crazy

Who said that stayin' alive
Was ever easy work
Oh, don't be fooled.
Change of hair and change of clothes
Doesn't hurt
And no jerk from the city
Is gonna take the shine off me.

Don't say I'm crazy
'Cos you live with me
Well I think you're crazy
And a bit rubs off on me

How long have we got
Before it all runs out
Oh, not long
Until a politician
Changes it about
No jerk from the government's
Gonna take the shine off me

Don't say I'm crazy
'Cos you live with me
Well I think you're crazy
And a bit rubs off on me

How long have we got
Before it all runs out
Oh, not long
Until a politician
Changes it about
No jerk from the government's
Gonna take the shine off me

Don't say I'm crazy
'Cos you live with me
Well I think you're crazy
And a bit rubs off on me

Don't say I'm crazy
'Cos you live with me
Well I think you're crazy
And a bit rubs off on me

White Lines

Passing truckies in the rain
Knowing I won't see you again
I'm allowed to show my pain
By driving on the white lines

I can feel the power at my feet
This paranoia's incomplete
It chills my body with its heat
While I'm driving on the white lines

White lines
Who's gonna pull me over, this time
I'm gonna get away
I'm thinkin' 'bout, old times
It seems that when you're young, well
Speed can thrill away the fear

Hey, what's the matter with this car
Itís on the way to where you are
Well I guess I won't be goin' far
Along the white lines

I can feel the power at my feet
This paranoia's incomplete
It chills my body with its heat
While I'm driving on the white lines

White lines
Who's gonna pull me over, this time
I'm gonna get away
I'm thinkin' 'bout, old times
It seems that when you're young, well
Speed can thrill away the fear
Thrill away the fear

White lines
Who's gonna pull me over, this time
I'm gonna get away
I'm thinkin' 'bout, old times
It seems that when you're young, well

If It Was Love

I'm not listening anymore
But I still hear your voice
And I guess it will haunt me forever
Darlin' you gave me no choice.
But to pretend, that we never met
To forget all those years
And erase from my memory
All the good times we shared

If it was love
Why did you let me down?
If it was truth
Why did you fool around?
And if it was good enough
For so long baby
Why was it over so soon?

Hey darlin, do you miss me?
Do you ever think of how things used to be?
Sometimes I dream
It was only a dream,
And I wake up, and get up
But I never see you.

(If it was love)
Why did you let me down?
If it was truth
Why did you fool around?
And if it was good enough
For so long baby
Why was it over so soon?

If it was love
Why did you let me down?
If it was truth
Why did you fool around?
And if it was good enough
For so long baby
Why was it over
Why was it over, so soon?

Donít Let Yourself Down

He pick her up in the middle of night
From the other side of town
Promised to take her where sheíd never been
It was all Ďcus the roof was down

As soon as he cuffed her
Put a ring on her finger
And the light to the city was there
She was sure it would be forever
Something she would never forget

He said
Donít you let yourself down
Get in over your head
With a boy like me
Donít let yourself drown
But itís alright
Sometimes Iím not always in tune
Oh no

They found her floating in the light of day
She had a strange look on her face
This is a very clear case of suicide
They said, a tragedy and such a waste
Late that night on the turn of the tide
He took a walk along the sand
Threw her file high in the air
But he had one right in his hand

He said
Donít you let yourself down
Get in over your head
With a boy like me
Donít let yourself drown
But itís alright
Sometimes Iím not always in tune
Oh no
Oh no

Power


Cat amongst the pigeons
A dealer in the dark
We are notches in his leather
We are details to his plans

It is not a case of zero
Itís where you put the point
You can tell by the rocks
On his hand

Itís forbidden information
So donít pick up the phone
Heís got ways and means of checking on us
Donít go out alone

He is wired and well connected
To the wheel within the wheel
And he stands on the edge
Of control

Power
Power
Itís cool
Power
Power
By fools

They caught him on the freeway
Out of gas and all alone
There was no pump in the distance
Only stop to make there own

And they matched him with his mug shot
Put him up against the wall
When youíre that close to the ground
How can you fall

Power
Just a step away
Power
Heís just a step away
Itís cool
Just a step away
Heís just a step away

Power
Just a step away
Power
Heís just a step away
By fools
Just a step away
Heís just a step away
From you

Power
Just a step away
Power
Heís just a step away
Itís cool
Just a step away
Heís just a step away

Power
Just a step away
Power
Heís just a step away
By fools
Just a step away
Heís just a step away

Water For The Flowers

There was a tree I played under,
And I watched it grow in wonder
It grew new leaves every spring,
And underneath those leaves Iíd swing
The man from the council chopped it down,
Said, "Trees make mighty fine paper"
Next thing I know, noisy machines
Are building a new skyscraper

I sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for a beautiful tree,
It's better than puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever

Weíve got so much to discover
About the world and one another
Plants and animals and birds
We've never seen and never heard
They are part of a precious garden,
We must tend it like our own
So the plants are left unharmed by man,
The creatures free to roam

We sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for a beautiful tree,
It's better, than trash and chemicals
Floating in the sea,
The fish canít eat
The plants canít breath
Putting up a building
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever
Forever

Lets sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for a beautiful tree,
That's better than trash and chemicals
Floating in the sea,
The fish can't eat,
The plants can't breathe
Puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever
Forever

Water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
That's better

Let's sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
That's better
Forever

Water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for a beautiful tree,
That's better

Physical Favours


Big car
Big ego
Big deal
There's something that you don't know

I'm simple
Cannot be bought
Not the kind of woman that you probably thought

Want to touch me
In a dark place?
Better watch where you show your face boy

Hands off...into your pockets
You know that I'm tough but who are you to knock it?

I don't need your physical favours
I don't care what you say your name is
Enough is enough stop hitting on me
How good could you possibly be?

Money buys, in silence
Every major modern appliance

Floor models, are always slightly used
And I'm not gonna be abused by you

Look at me, when I'm talking
No one here even noticed that you walked in

You're so vain, you're so boring
You think your winning
But your not even scoring

I don't need your physical favours
I don't care what you say your name is
Enough is enough stop hitting on me
How good could you possibly be?

I don't want your physical favours
I don't care what you say your name is
Enough is enough stop hitting on me
How good could you possibly be?
I mean, how good could you possibly be?

If you're gonna treat me like dirt
You're gonna get hurt
So listen to me darlin'
Mark my words

I don't need your physical favours
I don't care what you say your name is
Enough is enough stop hitting on me
How good could you possibly be?
(repeat)

If you're gonna treat me like dirt
You're gonna get hurt
How good could you possibly be?
Mark my words
I donít need it
I donít want it
Enough is enough

We're Only Human


I wanna get next to you
Why can't we get back to square
Help us turn around
And clear the atmosphere

I didn't mean to hurt you
And you didn't want to act like that

We're only human
Every one of us wants to be loved
We're only human
So why do we hurt the ones that we love?
(Human nature)

We can be so confusing
Where are we going next?
Why can't it be simple?
Why must it be so complex?

Forgive and forget
Why don't we give it a try?

We're only human
Every one of us wants to be loved
We're only human
So why do we hurt the ones that we love?
We're only human
(Human nature)
Forgive us for we know not what we've done
(Human nature)
Only human

Tears fall
Just like rain
Tears fall
And thereís no one to blame

We're only human
Every one of us wants to be loved
We're only human
Why do we hurt the ones that we love?
We're only human
Forgive us for we know not what we've done
Only human
Is it a blessing or just an excuse?

Trojan Horse


The ships pulled out last night
You left me standing on the shore
In the shattered morning light
I see that nothings fair in love and war

From crisis to crisis
You put my sanity at risk
Even though the dust has barely settled
You still come back bearing gifts

You can't take my love by force
You won't take it with a Trojan horse
Now the battles run its course
You won't take it with a Trojan horse

You trapped my love inside
Played a game of true or false
You killed it with your pride
I felt you drag it round the city walls

Well I'll never surrender
'Cos the chance for us has come and gone
And the love that you remember
Will haunt you from now on

You can't take my love by force
You won't take it with a Trojan horse
Now the battle's run its course
You won't take it with a Trojan horse

I can't give you what you're after
There's too much damage done
Wanna leave while I still have my soul

You can't take my love by force
You won't take it with a Trojan horse
Now the battle's run its course
You won't take it with a Trojan horse

You can't take my love by force
You won't take it with a Trojan horse
Now the battle's run its course
You won't take it with a Trojan horse

You canít take it by force
(You wonít take it with a Trojan horse)

You canít take it by force
(You wonít take it with a Trojan horse)
You canít take it by force
You canít take it, you wonít take it.

Far Away

I'm in the picture
I could be totally right
Or totally wrong about you

You're in the winter
While I am here in the sun
One day behind you in time

I'm far away
But I'll be thinking of you
From far away
You might be somewhere I know
With her
But I'm far away

You keep her dancing
A ballerina for you
Someone to move by your side

I keep my distance
Although I'm just killing time
Hearing your voice on the line

I'm far away
But I'll be thinking of you
From far away
You might be somewhere I know
With her
But I'm far away

Around the room
I place the pictures we took
You know the day?
And I feel closer to you
Even though I'm far away

I'm far away
But I'll be thinking of you
From far away
You might be somewhere I know
With her
But I'm far away

Around the room
I place the pictures we took
You know the day?
And I feel closer to you
Even though I'm far away

Far away...
Closer to you...
Thinking of you...
Far away...

Take me to Paris

I was going to leave unnoticed
But they're all awake 'round here
Oh pris, now your just a dream

I was going to take the fast lane
With the roof down in the sun
But somehow, now they've spoilt my fun

Take me to Paris
Where I found him in the dark
Take me to Paris
Where I knew right from the start

I was planning to use his shoulder
Stay a night or two in his bed
Oh, I remember what heíd said

He was talking of white and silver
And a night out on the town
Oh, how could I have let him down?

Take me to Paris
Where I found him in the dark
Take me to Paris
Where I knew right from the start

I stand at my window
With my face into the sun
Thinking of Paris
And the things I should have done

Take me to Paris

Danced in the Fire

Showing all her colours
In a poor disguise
You could tell that things had caught up with her
Just by looking in her eyes

The lawyers, love and litigation
Had cut her down to size
And what seemed like a normal and healthy thing
Turned into a really ugly dream
And she just wanted to sing
Arenít tricks for children?

She danced in the fire
Wearing a frozen glance
And sailed on down the river of stone

She found out who her friends were
In amongst the cold debris
Then she took a new apartment
Ďcos it looked out on Pacific seas
(thatís when her dream saw the light of day)

There was true love in the shuffle
Where she least expected it to be
And she wanted someone strong in her life to walk in
Help her fill a need that was burning within
She knows now, tricks are for children

She danced in the fire
Wearing a frozen glance
And sailed on down the river of stone

She danced in the fire
(Wearing a frozen glance)
Like there was one more chance
(and sailed on down the river of stone)

She danced in the fire
(Wearing a frozen glance)
Like there was one more chance
(and sailed on down the river of stone)

Shock to the Heart

Is it the full moon over the mountain
Hitting me in the eyes
Showing me the power of resistance
Beyond all reason and rhyme?

Could it be hard luck or animal instinct
Creating the storm between us?
Itís not the weight of any word that burns
Itís just the weight of its thrust

Iím not leaving your side
Because of that silver in the sky

Call it a shock to the heart
Or a kick in the side
But Iíve just come to my senses
Something out of the blue
Or a presence of mind
Says there can be no second chances this time

Why do we want more than blood from a hero
The thought of it leaves me cold
We could be draining each other the same way
Looking for total control

So tell me where do we stand in love
When we canít stand still on the wire?
Are we just avoiding the subject?
Whoís gonna be the first to fire?

Iím not leaving your side
Because of the silver in the sky

Call it a shock to the heart
Or a kick in the side
But Iíve just come to my senses
Something out of the blue
Or a presence of mind
Says there can be no second chances this time

Hard on you

The minute I see your face
No rules, need apply
My bodyís overtaken
And my mouth gets dry

Do you know whatís itís like
To have a thirst for love?

In comes the preacher
Sayiní through my screen
ďThereís a lot of monkey business
Goiní on behind the scenes
We could all be saved!
We should all believe!
We should all get serious
And get down upon our knees!

With a thirst for loveĒ

To have a thirst for love?

And I wanna be sure
That Iíve got it clear
That youíve got it clear

I donít wanna be filed under 666
Donít wanna live and lie in fear
If Heís gonna deal it out
With a sleight of hand
I donít wanna be the last one hear.. dying

Of a thirst for love
Do you know what itís like
To have a thirst for love?

Under Suspicion


When I turn around
Feel your breath
I see your face
Something shining through
Whatever it is for the better
Youíre telling me with your eyes

When I hear your voice
There are words I wish that you would say
Baby donít rush it
Say it whenever
Make it forever
I donít want you to change your mind

Iím holding you under suspicion
For stealing my heart
Now you canít get away
And Iím holding you under suspicion
For making me feel this way

I just woke up
The coffeeís on
Then I go back to bed
Was it something you said
In the dark room
Under the white moon
Thatís keeping me by your side?

You were talking about
Taking a risk
And people getting hurt
And how much we balance each other
Whenever weíre together
So donít question my love
I canít tell you enough

Iím holding you under suspicion
For stealing my heart
Now you canít get away
And Iím holding you under suspicion
For making me feel this way
Holding you under suspicion
Make me laugh
Make me scream
You belong in my dreams
This is love, this is not my obsession
Tell me youíre here to stay
Well, I know Iím here to stay

Something I feel strange
Things seem to get out of hand
I try to be tough
Thank God, you understand
You straighten me out
You take away any doubt I had in my mind
You make me strong againÖ

In Control

I know that times are tough
And dreams can cost me dearly
My dreams have been turned out and tossed
But now they unfold clearly

Ambition is a beast we must all tame
You can become obsessed with it
You lose the game

One day the wind blows hard and cold
Life can be sweet and sour
But I am in control
It can chill me to the bone
Give me wings to fly on my own
If I am in control

Well I keep my head ahead of the tide
Ďcos where one door slams
Another opens wide
And when the green eyed monster
Knocks at my door
I ask him what on earth he came here for

I say Ė one day the wind blows hard and cold
Life can be sweet and sour
But I am in control
Some say the wind is taking hold
Iím up against the wall
But I am in control
It can chill me to the bone
Give me wings to fly on my own
If I am in control

I say Ė one day the wind blows hard and cold
Life can be sweet and sour
But I am in control
Some say the wind is taking hold
Iím up against the wall
But I am in control
It can chill me to the bone
Give me wings to fly on my own
If I am in control

Satin Sheets

Sometimes when the wild wind blows
People go by, I donít even know
I cry out
My love is up for sale
Can I interest you?

I stand on a dusty shelf
My eyes are closed
But I will come alive
Once you get to know me

Wrap me in your satin sheets
Hold me in forever
Take me underneath your wing
Give me the strength I came for
Wrap me in your satin sheets

Back here from the hall of fame
Of pre-loved things, no one ever claims
I watch you
Your life is on the run
And mine stands still

Iíll tend to your every pleasure
If you take me home
And I will come to life
Once I get to know you

Wrap me in your satin sheets
Hold me in forever
Take me underneath your wing
Give me the strength I came for
Everywhere I look I see
Broken hearts and misery
But here in your satin sheets
Iíll be safe and warm ooh baby
Wrap me in your satin sheets

Miles away from anywhere
Outside the rain is falling
Iím just a satin doll
Take me home and love me love me

Wrap me in your satin sheets
Hold me in forever
Take me underneath your wing
Give me the strength I came for
Everywhere I look I see
Broken hearts and misery
But here in your satin sheets
Iíll be safe and warm ooh baby

In Our Dreams

First thing I see when I open my eyes
Last thing on my mind when I sleep at night
I am in limbo
Either way it's a total waste of heaven
Now I'm not an angel of the perfect kind
I just wanna figure in your whole design
How I would lose these wings
Just to fall into the pattern

In our dreams
We will remain
Where we should have been together
In our dreams
We will remain
Where we might have been forever

You're the possession I can never have
I got to see once but I can't look back
A simple fantasy
Either way it's a total waste of heaven

And you know I can't, move heaven and earth
Just to be with you for whatever it's worth
No I can't change these things
That were never meant to happen

In our dreams
We will remain
Where we should have been together
In our dreams
We will remain
Where we might have been forever

I remember
How you were mine
We made every second matter
I remember
How you were mine
Up until the dream shattered

In our dreams
We will remain
Where we should have been together
In our dreams
We will remain
Where we might have been forever

In our dreams
We should have been together
In our dreams
We might have been forever

We should have been together

Strangers Come

You were a wreck when I found you drifting
But now you sure know where you're goin'
You let her come in and make her move
Right before my eyes

And like a rain when it's out of season
You made excuses in the face of reason
No matter what I say
I'm still outnumbered anyway

Strangers come and strangers go
But I'll be waiting here until you
Hold me close and given time
I'll rock you out of her arms into mine

I'm stepping back from the situation
I think we both need time to breathe
Sometimes you give all you've got to something
And it still slips away

And like a rain when it's out of season
You make excuses in the face of reason
No matter what I say
Iím still outnumbered anyway

Strangers come and strangers go
But IíII be waiting here until you
Hold me close and given time
I'll rock you out of her arms into mine

Like a thief in the night
She takes your heart
But Iíll hold on
íTill you fall apart
You know my love is getting stronger

Strangers come and strangers go
But IíII be waiting here until you
Hold me close and given time
I'll rock you out of her arms into mine

Strangers come and strangers go
But IíII be waiting here until you

Out of her arms
Rock you.. into mine

My heart beats faster than a time bomb

I gotta hurry, I can't be late

Black and nasty, sleek and hotted-up

You oughta see her with her four wheels rolliní

Now and then, we go to a drive-in
Or sometimes we just go parking
We never hide out under the trees
We show her off for everyone to see
Acceleratingís such a blast
We feel famous we feel fast

Can't sleep in. I gotta get up
Sheís automatic. Sheís fantastic
You oughta see her with her four wheels rollin"

Little One

Well I was thinking about things
All the changes in my life
And I was thinking about which way
I view black and white
Do I figure in your life?
Do I figure at all?
Iím pushed to point Iíve never been to
A side of life that Iíve never seen well...anyway
I was hoping we could be
Always together
That I could teach you what I know
Pass it on for what it's worth
But circumstances
Alter chances
I grew wings. I took flight
Just like the angels in your night

I'll tell you one day where Iíve been
And all the wondrous things Iíve seen
While you're sleeping soundly in your bed
All these things that I wished Iíd said
I keep quietly in my head
íCos I am thinking of you little one
Little one.

Well can you talk about it?
How you see me in your life?
Am I ever in your dreams?
Am I fading out of sight?
Is it asking to much?
If I keep on hoping
You will grow and I will see
Just how you live and breathe through me?

I'll tell you one day where Iíve been
And all the wondrous things Iíve seen
While you're sleeping soundly in your bed
All these things that I wished Iíd said
I keep quietly in my head
íCos I am thinking of you little one
Little one.

I'll tell you one day where Iíve been
And all the wondrous things Iíve seen
While you're sleeping soundly in your bed
All these things that I wished Iíd said
I keep quietly in my head
íCos I am thinking of you little one

I'll tell you one day where Iíve been
And all the wondrous things Iíve seen
While you're sleeping soundly in your bed
All these things that I wished Iíd said
I keep quietly in my head
íCos I am thinking of you little one
Little one.

Edge of Winter

She is a stranger on your street
One of so many kinds you can meet
Said she could have picked up her feet
And out of here long ago
If it werenít for the edge of winter coming on
Stirring up the leaves from the gutter where they belong
She couldíve been headiní home by now
If it weren't for a lot of things
But aah aah aah aah
She's only just surviving on her own

Last seen on the Cote d'Azur
With anyone who's anyone
Wrapped around her fingers
Like diamonds in the setting sun
Last seen smiling at her own reflection
Now she looks away. Looks away

Talk about promises un-kept
Things she never ever got to accept
An absolute woman of the flesh
And she wanted everyone to know about it
If it weren't for the lifestyle bringiní her down
Stripping her naked with rumours all over town
She'd be standing on her own two feet
Instead of winding up this way, on this street
But aah aah aah aah
Sheís only just surviving

Last seen on the Cote d'Azur
With anyone who's anyone
Wrapped around her fingers
Like diamonds fn the setting sun
Last seen smiling at her own reflection
Now she looks away. Looks away
She's gotta look away this time

But aah aah aah aah
Sheís only just surviving
Last seen on the Cote d'Azur
With anyone who's anyone
Wrapped around her fingers
Like diamonds in the setting sun
Last seen smiling at her own reflection
Now she looks away. Looks away

Last seen on the Cote d'Azur
With anyone who's anyone
Wrapped around her fingers
Like diamonds in the setting sun
Last seen smiling at her own reflection
Now she looks away. Looks away

Losing You

Everyone thinks I'm just
Way too suspicious
íCos nothing's wrong
Everyone thinks I see things
That aren't even there
But.. Iíve watched you stalking her
Iíve seen you weaken to her scent on the wind
Do you think I don't know
The minute I look in your eyes?
I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing
(You're almost out of sight)

So what I'd better do is
Devise a system to
Keep you at home
Maybe I'll change my make-up
And colour my hair

You know if looks could kill
I'd be a criminal
They'd put me away
And she'd be the one
You're thinking about tonight

I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you

Idle rumours, never should survive
So then how come something's
Keeping these alive

Losing you
Losing you
Losing you

I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Looks like I'm losing you
You're almost out of sight
I see youíve led him away

I Know You Love Me

You give me roses through my window
Yellow, red and white
Mystery letters in my letter box
I read in bed at night

You are my own secret admirer
A face without a name
But you know
Oh oh oh I love to play your game

I know you love me
Got your fingerprints all over my heart
I know you love me
Just say the word 'cos I wanna get started

I could be locked up in a tower
And you would rescue me
I could be drowning in a sea of tears
You would pull me free

You are my knight in shining armour
A face without a name but you know
Oh oh oh history is my game

I know you love me
Got your fingerprints all over my heart
I know you love me
Just say the word 'cos I wanna get started

I know you love me
I shake and shiver when I think about us
That's how it should be
Just say the word 'cos I wanna get started
Don't ya wanna get started?
I wanna get started?
I wanna get started?
Donít ya wanna get started baby
yeah yeah yeah yeah

Couldn't we alter this position
Change the point of view?
Iíve had enough of this romantic stuff
I wanna get next to you

I know you love me
Got your fingerprints all over my heart
I know you love me
Just say the word 'cos I wanna get started
I know you love me
I shake and shiver when I think about us
That's how it should be
Just say the word 'cos I wanna get started
Don't ya wanna get started?
I wanna get started?
I wanna get started?
Donít ya wanna get started started.. yeah yeah
I wanna wanna wanna get close to you

Missing Person

I've got a place on Sierra Bonita
Not far from a Hollywood sign
I'm waking up from a night on the town
Showiní the big boys a pretty wild time

Well it's OK daddy, Iím not doing tricks
Doiní drugs or those porno nicks
I'm goiní after a part
I walk on and off

I made it with him, he made it with her
I made it to here so far
And I'm gonna make tracks for
New York daddy
As soon as I buy a car
See I feel like I need a change of pace
The walls are closing in
I'll go after a part
It'll get me started

I'm a missing person but you can find me
Hidiní round the corner
Wishing I could mail this letter
So you'd know where I am
Iím a missing person

Well I know that you love me daddy
But something wasn't right
Remember how the floor would creak
When you turned out my light

I think of all the bedtime stories
I was never told
I knew so much more
Way back then

I'm a missing person but you can find me
Hidiní round the corner
Wishing I could mail this letter
So you'd know where I am
Iím a missing person
I'll slip right through your fingers
Like a missing person

It's winter here in New York
So cold here in Queens
See I thought I was so on course
But someone stole my dream
Money's tight so I work at night
Sleep through most the day
But don't ask what Iím doing daddy
íCos I'm not gonna say

I'm a missing person but you can find me
Hidiní round the corner
Wishing I could mail this letter
So you'd know where I am
Iím a missing person
Iíll slip right through your fingers
Anything to free me from it all

Missing person missing person
Iím a missing person missing person

Poster Girl


Quiet on the set please
Weíll take it one more time
Shoot her at close range
A little more flesh
I know she wouldn't mind
Cruise with his shirt off
And Bardot on her wall
No you can't survive with a quiet hit
Sometimes you've gotta show it all

But under the covers
She sleeps alone at night
Deep inside underneath it all
There's a candle burning bright
Burning up to the surface
Where it all looks so in place
And fingers work from left to right
Putting makeup on that face

If she ever gets famous
She'll be up there on your wall
By an aerosol artist
Poster maker
At a thousand bucks a call
And sold for a mere song
At a really nice price
So much for the name on everyone's lips
So much for merchandising

But under the covers
She sleeps alone at night
Deep inside there's a candle burning
A candle burning bright
Burning up to the surface
Where it all looks so in place
And fingers work from left to right
Putting make-up on her face
A face that burns to the surface
Where it all looks so in place
And all eyes turn at the speed of light
To her body and her face
