Sailing Away (hidden track)
. . .


I had a nightmare
I lived in a little town
Where little dreams were broken
And words were seldom spoken

I tried to reach you
But all the lines were down
And so the rain began to fall
On this little town
On this little town

The little people
Had very little left to say
Their words had all been shortened
It didn't really seem important

And I had a feeling
That you were very far away
But then a little voice inside me said
You'll never get away from here

And it's one, two, three times and you lose
Of course it doesn't matter how you say it
I'm all out of love
So there's nothing really more to say
I'm throwing it all away

We had opinion
But now we all think the same
And never look at one another
Only when the other suffers

And I thought I saw you
But it was just another face
Plastered on a blank horizon
Running in the human race

And it's one, two, three times and you lose
Of course it doesn't matter how you say it
I'm all out luck
So there's nothing really more to say
I'm throwing it all away

And it's one, two, three times and you lose
I'm all out love
So there's nothing really more to say
I'm throwing it all away

I'm throwing it all away
I'm throwing it all away

. . .


Cheers
Thanks for everything
You hung me out by my heart
You're just so selfish jean
Yes you are

Hey you
Threw it all away
Holding everything in
Hey jean don't rock the boat
When you can't swim

With a perfect understanding of the finer things in life
I quite (love in eccles?) knowing when to twist the knife
Oooooooooh
Selfish Jean

Here's to you
Who ate everything
Left it out on a shelf
There's no one else to blame
Except yourself

Well a perfect combination of good educate and charm
You keep the chocolate biscuits wired to a car alarm
Oooooooooh
Selfish Jean

Well i'm standing on my own
And this house is not a home
So sad to see you go
Things are high, things are low
And it's good to know you know
If you've got knowhere to go
Well you could spend the night with me
There will be no guarantee that i'll be here

In the morning
Or any time that you call
I hear you snoring jean
Through the wall

So hey
Here's to everything
To peace and love in our time
Ah jean the slate is clean
I guess we're fine

Well i don't expect a miracle
Not asking you to change
If you can see my happy
Well just look the other way
Oooooooooh
Selfish Jean

Heeeaaaaaah
Selfish Jean

Jean
Oh yeah
Jean

I've had enough, of this parade.
I'm thinking of, the words to say.
We open up, unfinished parts,
Broken up, its so mellow.

And when I see you then I know it will be next to me
And when I need you then I know you will be there with me
Ill never leave you...

Just need to get closer, closer,
Lean on me now,
Lean on me now,
closer, closer,
Lean on me now,
Lean on me now.

Keep waking up (waking up), without you here (without you here).
Another day (another day), another year (another year).
I seek the truth (seek the truth), we set apart (we set apart)
Thingking of a second chance (a second chance).

And when I see you then I know it will be next to me
And when I need you then I know you will be there with me
Ill never leave you...

Just need to get closer, closer,
Lean on me now,
Lean on me now,
closer, closer,
Lean on me now,
Lean on me now (lean on me now).

And when I see you then I know it will be next to me
And when I need you then I know you will be there with me
Ill never leave you...

Just need to be closer, closer,
Lean on me now,
Lean on me now,
closer, closer,
Lean on me now,
Lean on me now (lean of me now).

closer, closer... closer, closer.

. . .


Now you know that I heart everything about you
And that's why it's quite hard to get through this alone

You're the only one I can talk to about it
In my darkest night I will be on my own

These walls that we climb are hard to recognize
They fall when I say your name

Here we go
Fast and slow
On the big chair

But we don't know
Where we're going
On the big chair

Don't you know it's hard, quite, in the time of confusion
To tell you that I love you

You see it could have been me instead of you
It could have been me if I wanted to
But it wasn't
So we'll have to face the truth

These walls that we climb are hard to recognize
They fall when I say your name

Here we go
Fast and slow
On the big chair

But we don't know
Where we're going
On the big chair

Time to pull the shutters down
Breakin' clouds don't make a sound?

Here we go
Fast and slow
On the big chair

But we don't know
Where we're going
On the big chair

. . .


when will you carry me home
like the wounded star in a movie
when will you carry me home
take it back to the start when you knew me
cause when you talk to me that way
I'll be a million miles away
I guess it's just another day in love

we're battleships
driftin' in our wee river
takin' hits, sinkin' it's now or never
overboard, drowning in a sea of love
and hate, it's too late
battleship down

when will you figure it out
that you're not always right little darling
when will you figure it out
that it's not worth the fight little darling
cause when you can't think what to say
you go and throw it all away
I guess it's just another day in love

we're battleships
driftin' in our wee river
takin' hits, sinkin' it's now or never
overboard, drowing in a sea of love
and hate, but it's too late
battleship down

you're too smart
and I'm too dumb
with no heart in the middle

we're battleships
driftin' in our wee river
takin' hits, sinkin' it's now or never
oberboard, fallin' in to the ocean
ship to shore, drowin' in a sea love of love
and hate, but it's too late
battleship down

All theses visions in my head, should’ve gone to the bed before the watershed
Some are alive, and some are dead
Makes no difference when they’re in your head, head

Keep the door, clear the crack
So I can see better when they attack
Some are white, some are black, makes no difference when they’re in the dark

And I can’t stop crying and I can’t stop driving
Cos the day is dying, dying, dying, my eyes wide open

Keep the shutters? Clean the fence
So I can see…..when I’m feeling tense
Disbelief, I’m in suspense, out of bounds
Is my own defence

But I can’t stop crying and I can’t stop driving
Cos the day is dying, dieing, dieing, my eyes wide open

All these visions in my head, should’ve gone to bed before the watershed
Some are alive, some are dead
Makes no difference when they’re in your head

And I can’t stop crying and I can’t stop driving
Cos the day is dieing my eyes wide open

. . .


Deep in my heart,
there's no room for crying,
but I'm trying to see your point of view.
Deep in my heart, I'm afraid I'm dying,
I'd been lying if I said I'm not.

Welcome in, welcome in,
shame about the weather,
Welcome in, welcome in,
you're welcome.
It's a sin, it's a sin,
Where birds of a feather
Are welcome to land on you

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’ve got my eyes,
We can’t see, what you’ll be,
You can’t disguise.
Either way, I will pray,
You will be wise.
Pretty soon, we will see,
Tears in my eyes.

As each day goes by, makes a way for another,
We discover that we’re not alone,
And each day we try,
The best we can to recover,
All the feelings that we left below.

Welcome in, welcome in,
shame about the weather,
Welcome in, welcome in,
you're welcome.
It's a sin, it's a sin,
Where birds of a feather
Are welcome to land on you

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’ve got my eyes,
We can’t see, what you’ll be,
You can’t disguise.
Either way, I will pray,
You will be wise.
Pretty soon, we will see,
Tears in my eyes.

I wake up to find you lying awake with your haze in your head
You can out of run, can escape from things that you say

You can tell anybody, anybody who comes
You can tell anybody but the damage is done
The new day's begun

One night can change everything in your life
One night can make everything all right
One night can turn all your colours to white
One night is easier said than done

Turning and turning
But never returning to what you once had
Learning to care for the one you hold near
But it's too, it's too bad

One night can change everything in your life
One night can make everything all right
One night can turn all your colours to white
One night is easier said than done

All that I am
All that I am
All that I am

Lying beside you is cold as a statue
Your hands are still warm
Trying to wake you is daylight
It breaks through the eyes of the stone

So
You can tell everybody, everybody who comes
You can tell everybody but the damage is done
The new day's begun

One night can change everything in your life
One night can make everything all right
One night can turn all your colours to white
One night is easier said than done

One night
One night
One night
One night is easier said than done

All my friend
We have spent so much time looking for someone to blame
'Cause we're the same
The jealous games take up time
We can spend another themes

All my friend
If it is
Let us go and not look back again
We can be
You and me taking ourselves much too seriously

But out in space
A million minors walk upon
The light's a cold face
And all I see is black
And all the stars look back at me

All my friend
What a friend
Out of thought
You stayed here to the end

Take about drawn a crowd (??)
We just was in the sand at height tighted (??)

But out in space
A million minors walk upon
The light's a cold face
And all I see is black
And all the stars look back at me

All my friend
We should spend some more time looking from the other end
'Cause we'd see so clearly
We blame ourselves as much as we blame we
We blame ourselves as much as we blame we
We blame oursevles

. . .


I'm in love with everything
with every face I've ever seen
and every place I've ever been
has left its mark upon my worries

I color in the world I see
I pick apart the melody
'cause maybe there's a symphony
caught inside but there's no way out

and the sky is falling down
and there's an angel on the ground
it's getting colder
I'm standing looking down
there's not a sound around the town
it's getting colder
colder

I would show you everything
but everything is too extreme
we'll wait and see the entropy
at the end when we all stop lying ???

but the sky is falling down
and there's an angel on the ground
it's getting colder
I'm standing looking down
there's not a sound around the town
it's getting colder

the sky is falling down
and there's an angel on the ground
it's getting colder
I'm standing looking down
there's not a sound around the town
it's getting colder

the sky is falling down
and all the people on the ground
are getting colder
I'm standing looking down again
but you can't help me now
I'm getting colder

Goodbye girl

And they meet on Bleeker Street
Or the park that is central, oh
I watch the sun go down
Down down beneath the ground
And it's a new day
It's a new dawn
In New Amsterdam

The stranger in the moonlight
Looks stranger in the moonlight

And they meet on Bleeker Street
Or the park that is central, oh
I watch the sun go down
Down down beneath the ground
And it's a new day
It's a new dawn
In New Amsterdam

And we meet on Bleeker Street
Or the park that is central, oh
I watch the sun go down
Down down beneath the ground
And it's a new day
It's a new dawn
In New Amsterdam

What are we gonna do when you start crying?
Whatever you're going through is not worth dying
Chasing away the blues I know you're trying
And nobody wants to lose I don't know why

`Cause I - live - by - the river, live by the river and I'll die by the river
I'm sailing away today.

What are you gonna say when they stop laughing?
You've given it all away when you've got nothing.
How many time a day you feel like walking?
Taking a holiday from all the shite

But I - live - by - the river, live by the river and I'll die by the river
I'm sailing away today.
`Cause I - live - by - the river, live by the river and I'll die by the river
I'm sailing away today.

You've got to grab the bull by the horns my friend
It's the only way to go
And when the story is told
We can go home so

What are we gonna do when you start crying?
Where-ever you're going to is not worth dying
Keeping away the blues you know I'm trying
What have you got to lose and testify

`Cause I - live - by - the river, live by the river and I'll die by the river
I'm sailing away, I'm sailing away, I'm sailing away today.
