A Boogie
Sounds they play
In the streets today
What'd you say?
What'd you say?

Sounds they play
Blow my cares away
What'd they say?
What'd they say?

Don't stay low,
Jump into the flow
Don't go home,
There's somewhere to go
Take your chance
In the traffic dance

High finance,
Low finance
Renaissance
Fancy pants
Join the trance
Made in France

Walk the night
It's getting light

You blow my troubles away
You blow my troubles away

Sounds they play
In the streets today
What'd you say?
What'd you say?

Sounds blow my mind away
What'd they say?
What'd they say?


Hear those sounds runnin' underground
Hear those sounds, you can't keep 'em down.

Uptown Breakdown

Tongue tied
Hold tight inside

If it hurts you don't let it
You've got time to forget it
You can always regret it bye and bye

Breakdown
Uptown
Take it down

From the streets full of sorrow
Where they park our tomorrows
O the hours are all borrowed
Lost and found

We're gonna take all the heartbreaks down
We're gonna break all the heartaches down
We're gonna make our troubles dance away
We're gonna leave on the morning train
We're gonna move on the morning train
We're gonna take our troubles far away
 - dance away
 - swing away

Break it down
Gonna leave town
Heave a sigh

There's a time you can face it
Then you have to replace it
You might just have to raze it
To the ground

We're gonna leave on the morning train
We're gonna move on the morning train
We're gonna make our troubles dance away
 - swing away

Breakdown
Uptown
Take it down

Travlin' Child
Travlin' child
Growing wild
You caught me somewhere on the run
Travlin' child
When she smiled
You came to us out of the sun

Why didn't anybody tell me
That I could love and still be free
Why didn't anybody tell me
That you could solve the mystery

Wheels of love keep on turning round
Dance in time to the sound
Wheels of love moving round

Travlin' child
Few more miles
And you'll know what you're gonna be
Travlin' child
Got some style
To that kind of thing to me

Why didn't anybody tell me
That I could find your sympathy
Why didn't anybody tell me
I wouldn't listen to a word they say anyway

Wheels of love turning round and round
Dance in time to the sound wheels of love
turning round and round

Why didn't anybody tell me
That I could love and still be free
Why didn't anybody tell me
I wouldn't listen to a word they say anyway

Wheels of love keep on turning round
Dance in time to the sound
Wheels of life going round . . .

New World
I've sailed to heaven
And flown through fires of hell
So many good times
I'll show you where they fell
Just empty memories
That's all they have to sell
And the world keeps comin' in the morning

I've worn the sunshine
And I have drunk the rain
Tomorrow's promises
Just bring them back again
We're planning futures
And standing in the rain
And the world keeps comin' in the morning

Nothing is ever just the way it seems
In the world of today
And now they're saying it was only dreams
And there's no more cards to play

O fallen angels
Save a place in the sun for me
In that new world comin' in the morning . . .

Make Love
(Part II)
See a flame in a town full of strangers
See a plane falling out of the blue
Every day driving dreams through the danger
I want to make love to you

See a fire on a street full of sadness
See a kid in the snow with no shoes
Every day drive my mind through the madness
I want to make love to you

I have to keep the picture everywhere I go
I keep them to myself so no one else will know
The world is crazy, only thing I want to do
I want to make love to you

I have to keep the moments running through my head
I seem to feel your arms around me in my bed
The world is crazy, only thing I want to do
I want to make love to you

You're the one I need
Can't stand being without you babe
You're the one who's got the feeling
For me . . .

People are reaching for power
See the soldiers erasing what's true
Every day when I'm chasing the hours
Just want to make love to you

 

 

 

 

 Green & Blue
And so it's true
We all love green and blue
The kids are sniffing glue
We're gonna see it through

You said it's so
A long time ago
And life must have its throw
You cannot break it

It's all very well
To tell the world to go to hell
The secret of the cell
Is hidden in the smell

It's time to say goodbye,
There's one for you and me,
It's fine for you and me,
We're gonna see it through

Blue . . . Blue . . .

There's places everywhere
Where people work and swear
They're gonna change somewhere,
It's a-coming

The people in this town
They feel what's going down
And they'll be coming round
In the morning

It's coming everywhere
You're gonna stand and stare
Crowds of feeling overpowering

C'mon everybody
(Blue . . . )
Everybody swing and sway
(Blue . . . )

There's places everywhere
Where people swear
It's a-coming

These people in this town
They feel most ups and downs
And they'll be coming round
In the morning

It's coming . . . It's coming . . .

C'mon everybody
(Blue . . . )
Everybody swing and sway
(Blue . . . )

The Swarm
Feel it coming
In the distance
Ground is humming
You have been warned
Think it's the Swarm

Shadows flying
Over, heartland
Is it part man
No shape or form
Think it's the Swarm

Hear it moving
Through the country
Guns keep firing
But it runs free
With its own storm

Towns are shaking
Trees are falling
Lives are breaking
Lives being torn
Think it's the Swarm

Encore
Getting into some new ways
And out of the old
Left the seasons of regret
I'm changing my role
Getting over the dark greys
Maybe finding new ways
Giving up's harder than living

I'm into the new year
And out of the old
Saw a vision of the stars
Coming out of the cold
Getting over the hard greys
Finding new days
Giving up's harder than living
Breaking away isn't easy
And the best is still to come

Found a season to sail on
Into the gail
Found a reason to press on
Those hounds on my tail
Runnig away/ got time to pay/ so much to say

Giving myself the hardest sell
Keeping it on
Finding myself a hard shell
That shines in the dawn
Making a start/ taking some heart/ playing my part

I'm taking the straight line
I'm making my list
I'm catching that train
The chances I missed
I'm getting past the fear
And out into the clear
Giving up's harder than living
Breaking away isn't easy
And the best is still to come

There's a time to go through the lights
When they say red
There's a time to let crazy games
Move in instead
Making that play/ blows you away/ can't always pay

A time to go walking on
Threatening waves
A time to call a stop
Be nobody's slave
Out into the air/ through with the past/ giving my share
Not coming last/ sun in your hair/ gaining so fast/
Now you are there . . .

In shaking skies we fly alone
Out in the lead
Our wings are so near burning
Keeping up speed
Falling behind . . . feeling so blind . . . walking that line . . . so fine . . .
Walking that line . . . so fine . . .

I'm into some new ways
And out of the old
I'm leaving the sadness
I'm changing my role
Leaving out the blue
Feeling so new
Giving up's harder than living
Breaking away isn't easy
But the best is still to come . . .

Automatic Pilot
I'm on automatic pilot
I'm walking in my sleep
I can't afford to wake up
And my nightmares aren't so cheap

Hear that sound outside my window
Hope it's just a dream
They've got some crazy sounding orders
Coming straight from the machine
