It starts in the theatre
A night of encounters
If I hadn't been there
If not for a cigarette

And you could see it change
Look past the blinding light
Look past the blinding light
Just keep taking now
Tell me your favourite things
Tell me your favourite things

Difference in opinion was never an issue
Collect all your questions
Because this time we've all night

And you could see it change
Look past the blinding light
Look past the blinding light
Just keep taking now
Tell me your favourite things
Tell me your favourite things

. . .


Another Saturday
Another careless move
Tell the world
That you're thinking of what to do
A window opens up
And some one calls your name
But I can tell
You don't know how to play this game

I know this isn't it
You'll hit your target some day

So now your on your own
Won't you come back home
To see you're not that kind
And find the strength
To find the strength
To find another way

So tell me what you need
And I'll accommodate
But if too long goes by
You just might be too late
An opportunity
You can't afford to waste
So have the lines in your head first
For heaven's sake

You hear the day beckoning
Know what its all in your head

So now your on your own
Won't you come back home
To see you're not that kind
And find the strength
To find the strength
To find another way

So now your on your own
Won't you come back home
To see you're not that kind
And find the strength
To find the strength

So now your on your own
Won't you come back home
To see you're not that kind
And find the strength
To find the strength
To find another way

We're low in our hearts
We're low in our heads
But all in good time

Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you want it all?

We're low in our hearts
We're low in our heads
But all in good time
We'll take charge
We'll all take our chances
All in good times

Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you want it all?

All because you want to be
All because you want to be
All because you want to be
All because you want to be

. . .


Feel something right
And feel some good
Because if one thing works
You might know its true

Because if this is the life
This is the life
This is the life
This is the life
This is the life
Then who'd argue?

One year, 5 days
And we're starting new
Try to make a change
It's one more thing to do

Because if this is the life
This is the life
This is the life
This is the life
This is the life
Then who'd argue?

. . .


There's a spanner in the works you know,
you gotta step up your game to make to the top.
So go!
Gotta little competition now,
you're going to find it hard to cope with living on your own now.
Uh oh!
Uh oh!

Let's make this happen, girl you gotta show the world that something good can work and it can work you.
And you know that it will.
Let's get this started girl, we're moving up we're moving up but I mean alot has changed but you will always get what you want.
Took a little time to make it a little better,
it's only going out, just one thing and another,
you know!
You know!

You won't believe what I tell you,
White coats and clever minds will choose
You get a lot from this
Loose tongue and arrogance
It's not appropriate
Don't think that this is it

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

A longer sentence brings no more
Than one that I had said before
It's hard to compromise
When I see through your eyes
It's just a common view
I guess it's lost on you

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

instrumental

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

and she spoke words that would melt in your hands
and she spoke words of wisdom
to the basement people, to the basement
many surprises await you
in the basement people, in the basement

you hid there last time, you know we're gunna find you
sick in the karsi, coz you're not up to going
out on the main streets, completing your mission
you hid there last time, you know we're gunna find you
sick in the karsi, coz you're not up to going
out on the main streets, completing your mission

In a few weeks
I will get time
To realise it's right before my eyes
And I can take it if it's what I want to do

I am leaving
This is starting to feel like
It's right before my eyes
And I can taste it
It's my sweet beginning

And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone
And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time
Yeah, you've known it the whole time

Maybe next year
I'll have no time
To think about the questions to address
Am I the one to try to stop the fire?

I wouldn't test you
I'm not the best you could have attained
Why try anything?
I will get there
Just remember I know

And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone
And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time
Yeah, you've known it the whole time

And I can tell just what you want
You don't want to be alone
You don't want to be alone
And I can't say it's what you know
But you've known it the whole time
Yeah, you've known it the whole time

. . .


You would look a little better
Don't you know
If you just wore less make-up
But its hard to realise
When you're sky high
Fighting off the spaceships

And so you're drinking in your room
To make it all go
It didn't end too soon
You've got the next one
You're holding on too long
You've got to let go
Your other love is gone
And you know

Its too late
Its too late
You've got another one coming
And its going to be the same

I tried to find a quiet place that we could go
To help you make decisions
But I didn't find it easy to tell them apart
With double vision

And so you're drinking in your room
To make it all go
It didn't end too soon
You've got the next one
You're holding on too long
You've got to let go
Your other love is gone
And you know

Its not the same
Its not the same
Its not the same
You're going to tell me that I'm right
You're going to come back down
And find yourself
Where you are again

You didn't know
You didn't know
You didn't know
So don't pretend you saw it now
Its not something you'd want to happen
Now you know who you are again

. . .


I was wrong, I take it back
Now can we get along, give up the slack
You know it all could be much easier
But I'm still travelling, I'm still travelling
And all the while, the people talk
About the unsung shit, that they then stop
And use to please the crowd, the swarming whordes of fun
That was in in-turned glasses

So if I'm wrong again, I apologise
You can take your guest, I'll take out my eyes
It's a common thing, to be out of line
But it's getting old, by the fifteenth time

Don't take your time, make up your mind
Though it won't change the world, you'll be more inclined
To have a point of view, that makes it through
And keeps you travelling, keeps you travelling
So pick your friends, forget the rest
You can't live life being second best
The critics talk of stubbornness
But you're just passionate, you're just passionate

So if I'm wrong again, I apologise
You can take your guest, I'll take out my eyes
It's a common thing, to be out of line
But it's getting old, by the fifteenth time

So if I'm wrong again, I apologise
You can take your guest, I'll take out my eyes
It's a common thing, to be out of line
But it's getting old, by the fifteenth time

So if I'm wrong again, I apologise
You can take your guest, I'll take out my eyes
It's a common thing, to be out of line
But it's getting old, by the fifteenth time

So if I'm wrong again, I apologise
You can take your guest, I'll take out my eyes
It's a common thing, to be out of line
But it's getting old, by the fifteenth time
