Fluency Admin

Fluency Admin for WordPress plugin
Wordpress 2.5 is coming, and with it comes a new admin backend interface that, according to most, is a step backwards. I’m not quite sure I agree with it and I’m glad it at least gets an overhaul. As for the aesthetics, Fluency Admin is a plugin I’m going to install to take care of that, because I think it looks really slick.

Ubuntu, Vista, XP, or?

What do you run on your main computer? And why? Seeing as mine is slowly crashing I’m trying to decide what to install on the ‘new’ one. XP is the safest best because it just works. My wife only needs Firefox and Photoshop, which run on any OS under the sun so she doesn’t really care. But I’m used to a lot of nifty little programs on windows for both recreational purposes and getting work done, and do I really want to invest time in finding equivalents for all of them in linux? Plus I use linux enough at work to know it’s not answer to all prayers as some advocates claim either. And then there’s Vista. I’ve always said I’d wait until SP1… so now it’s here. Is it any good? Why would I want it? Other than eyecandy that is. Which I can get on any os as well.
Ah, decisions decisions…

Gravatar p00f… again

Wondering why I saw less and less gravatars in the comments here (including my own) I logged on at their site and surprise surprise, no pictures. Both avatars I uploaded before are gone. So yeah, no wonder they don’t show up. If you’ve been wondering why yours are missing you might want to check as well. Make sure to log on with your email address in lower case and use your email address in lower case for comments around the web as well, that seems to be one reason for glitches. Apparently the whole gravatar site code was recently switched from ruby on rails to php so maybe something went wrong during that process. At any rate, try again… again.

See Who I Am

Is it true what they say
Are we too blind to find a way
Fear of the unknown
Cloud our hearts today

Come into my world
See through my eyes
Try to understand
Don’t wanna lose what we have

We’ve been dreaming
For who can’t deny
It’s the best way of living
Between the truth and the lies

[Chorus:]
See who I am
Break through the surface
Reach for my hand

And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands
This is not the end

Fear is withering the soul
At the point of no return
We must be the change we wish to see

I’ll come into your world

See through your eyes
I’ll try to understand
Before we lose what we have

We just can’t stop believing
Because we have to try
We can rise above the truth and the lies

[Chorus:]
See who I am

Break through the surface
Reach for my hand
And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

See who I am
Break through the surface
Reach for my hand

And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

This is not the end

Hear the silence
Reach out my blame
Will our strength remain?
If the power rise

[Chorus:]
See who I am
Break through the surface
Reach for my hand
And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

See who I am

Break through the surface
Reach for my hand
And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

This is not the end

Jillian

I’ve been dreaming for so long
To find the meaning
To understand
The secret of life
Why am I here
To try again

We’ll always

We’ll always
See the truth,
When it stares ya in the face
Will I ever
Will I never free my self
Breaking these chains

[Chorus:]
In my heart in my soul

I turn it back it’s my fault
Your destiny is forlorn
After the turning sign
In my heart in my soul
I turn it back
And then I’ve lost
My key on the way

I’ve been living for so long

Many seasons past me by
I’ve seen kingdoms through ages
Rise and fall
I’ve seen it all

I’ve seen the harbour
I’ve seen the wonders
Happening just in front of my eyes
Will I ever

Will I never free myself by breaking it right?

[Chorus]

Jillian
Our dream ended long ago
All our stories
And all our glories
I held so dear
We won’t be together for ever and ever

No more tears
I’ll always be here
‘Till the end

[Voices] Jillian

[Chorus]

Stand My Ground

I can see
When you stay low nothing happens
Does it feel right?

Late at night
Things I thought I put behind me
Haunt my mind

I just know there’s no escape

Now once it sets its eyes on you
But I wont run,
Have to stare it in the eye

[Chorus:]
Stand my ground, I wont give in
No more denying, I got to face it
Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside
If I don’t make it, someone else will

Stand my ground

It’s all around
Getting stronger, coming closer
Into my world

I can feel
That its time for me to face it
Can I take it?

Though this might just be the ending
Of the life I held so dear
But I won’t run,
There’s no turning back from here

[Chorus]

All I know for sure is I’m trying
I will always stand my ground

[Chorus]

^back to top

Pale

The world seems not the same
Though I know nothing has changed
It’s all my state of mind
I can’t leave it all behind

Have to stand up to be stronger

[Chorus:]
Have to try
To break free
From the thoughts in my mind
Use the time that I have
I can say goodbye
Have to make it right

Have to find
‘Cause I know in the end it’s worth while
That the pain that I feel slowly fades away
It will be all right

I know
I should realize
Time is precious
It is worth while

Despite how I feel inside
Have to trust it’ll be alright
Have to stand up to be stronger

[Chorus]

This night is too long
Have no strength to go on
No more pain I’m falling away

Through the mist see the face
Of an angel, calls my name
I remember you’re the reason I have to stay

[Chorus]

^back to top

Forsaken

Now the day has come

We are forsaken this time

We lived our lives
In our paradise
As Gods we shaped the world around
No borderlines
We stayed behind
No boundaries is something fragile

Well we thought we were gaining

We turned back the time
It still slips away
Our time has run out
Our future has died
There’s no more escape

[Chorus:]
Now the day has come
We are forsaken

There’s no time any more
Life will pass us by
We are forsaken
We’re the last of our kind

The sacrifice
Was much to hide
Our grief just made us all go on
We try to hide what we fear inside

Today is the end of tomorrow

As the sea started rise
And the land that we conquered
It just washed away
We all have tried
To turn back the time
It was all in vain

[Chorus:]

Now the day has come
We are forsaken this time

Now the day has come
We are forsaken
There’s no time any more

Now the day has come,
The day has come

Angels

Sparkling angel
I believe
You are my saviour
In my time of need

Blinded by faith

I couldn’t hear
All the whispers
They’re warning so clear

I see the angels
I’ll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
Now mercy no more

No remorse cause I still remember

The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus:]
You took my heart
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams
I wished they’d turn to real
You broke a promise
And made me realise

It was all just a lie

Sparkling angel
Couldn’t see
Your dark intensions
Your feelings for me

Fallen angel
Tell me why
What is the reason?

The thorn in your eye

I see the angels
I’ll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
No mercy no more

No remorse cause I still remember
The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus]

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

This world may have failed you
It doesn’t give the reason why
You could have chosen
A different path of life

[Chorus:]
The smile when you tore me apart
You took my heart
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams
I wished they’d turn in to real
You broke a promise
And made me realise
It was all just a lie

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

Memories

[Whisper] Memories, memories, memories

In this world you tried

Not leaving me alone behind
There’s no other way
I’ll pray to the gods: let him stay

The memories ease the pain inside
Now I know why

[Chorus:]
All of my memories
Keep you near

It’s all about us
Imagine you’d be here
All of my memories
Keep you near
The silent whispers
The silent tears

Made me promise I’d try
To find my way back in this life

I hope there is away
To give me a sign you’re okay
Reminds me again
It’s worth it all
So I can go home

[Chorus]

Together in all these memories
I see your smile

All the memories I hold dear
Darling you know I love you till the end of time

[Chorus]

Aquarius

I hear your whispers
Break the silence

And it calms me down
Taste on my lips
Your salty kisses

They say I’m seeking up the danger
That one day you will let me go

[Chorus:]
I need you Aquarius
And try to learn

We’ll have to stay
I feel you Aquarius
Cause you don’t see,
Set me free
You call to me Aquarius

I relinquish
To your powers
From your grasp

I just can’t hide

Mr. Danger
I had to conquer
You made me feel alive

They say I have to be aware
That one day you will let me go

[Chorus]

I long for you Aquarius
I need to be with you again
I feel you Aquarius
My destiny ’till the end

[Chorus]

It’s The Fear

It awaits for the day
Will let it out
Give it a reason
To give it it’s might

Fear of who I am becoming
I fear that I’m losing
The struggle within
I can no longer restrain it

My strength, it is fading
I have to give in

[Chorus:]
It’s the fear of the dark
It’s growing inside of me
They won they will hunt tonight
Have to save all the love
There is no escaping

Cause my faith is our doom

Hold down your head now
Just let me pass by
Don’t feed my fear
Don’t want it out

I fear for who I’m becoming
I feel that I’m losing
All beauty within

I can no longer restrain it
My strength it is fading
I have to give in

[Chorus]

Long ago he came to me
I’m ever since that day
Infected with it’s rage
For us to take

[Chorus]

^back to top

Somewhere

Lost in the darkness
Hoping for a sign
Instead there’s only silence
Can’t you hear my screams?

Never stop hoping
Until you know where you are
But one thing’s for sure
You’re always in my heart

[Chorus:]
I’ll find you somewhere
I’ll keep on trying
Until my dying day

I just need to know
Whatever has happened?
The truth will free my soul

Lost in the darkness
Tried to find your way home
I want to embrace you
And never let you go

Almost like you’re in heaven

So no one can hurt your soul
Living in agony
Cause I just did not know
Where you were

[Chorus]

Wherever you are
I won’t stop searching
Whatever it takes me to go

[Chorus]

Mother Earth

Birds and butterflies
Rivers and mountains she creates
But you’ll never know
The next move she’ll make
You can try
But it is useless to ask why
Cannot control her

She goes her own way

She rules until the end of time
She gives and she takes
She rules until the end of time
She goes her own way

With every breath
And all the choices that we make
We are only passing through on her way

I find my strength
Believing that your soul lives on
Until the end of time
I’ll carry it with me

Once you will know my dear
You don’t have to fear
A new beginning always starts at the end
Until the end of time

She goes her own way

^back to top

Ice Queen

When leaves have fallen
And skies turned into grey.
The night keeps on closing in on the day
A nightingale sings his song of farewell

You better hide for her freezing hell

On cold wings she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing
Come on just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe it.

When she embraces

Your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you are all alone
And when she whispers
Your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you

Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away
Haven’t you seen?

Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

She covers the earth with a breathtaking cloak
The sun awakes and melts it away
The world now opens its eyes and sees
The dawning of a new day

Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away

Haven’t you seen?
Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

^back to top

Our Farewell

In my hands
A legacy of memories

I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes

You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Never thought
This day would come so soon
We had no time to say goodbye
How can the world just carry on?
I feel so lost when you are not by my side
But there’s nothing but silence now

Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

So sorry your world is tumbling down
I will watch you through these nights
Rest your head and go to sleep
Because my child, this not our farewell.
This is not our farewell.

Caged

These are the darkest clouds
To have surrounded me
Now I find my self alone caught in a cage
There’s no flower to be found in here
Not withering
Or pale to me
Everyone with a friendly face

Seems to hide some secret inside

He told me he loved me
While he laughed in my face
He just led me astray
He took my virtue
I feel so cold inside
Sorrow has frozen my mind

My heart is covered

With thoughts entangled
How could it ever have felt so real?
Is there a place more lonely than I feel within?
Could I have seen?
Could I have known?
I just took it as the truth
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside
Always there to remind me

To keep me from believing
That someone might be there
Who’ll free me and never ever leave me

^back to top

The Promise

On behalf of her love
She no longer sleeps

Life no longer had meaning
Nothing to make her stay
She sold her soul away

I held you tight to me
But you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed, I believed

After the night he died

I wept my tears until they dried
But the pain stayed the same
I didn’t want him to die all in vain
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
I’ll make them bleed at my feet

Sometimes I wonder
Could I have known their true intentions?
As the pain stayed the same

I’m going to haunt them down all the way
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
One by one they were surprised

Never-ending Story

Armies have conquered
And fallen in the end

Kingdoms have risen
Then buried by sand
The Earth is our mother
She gives and she takes
She puts us to sleep and
In her light we’ll awake
We’ll all be forgotten
There’s no endless fame
But everything we do

Is never in vain

We’re part of a story, part of a tale
We’re all on this journey
No one is to stay
Where ever it’s going
What is the way?

Forests and deserts
Rivers, blue seas

Mountains and valleys
Nothing here stays
While we think we witness
We are part of the scene
This never-ending story
Where will it lead to?
The earth is our mother
She gives and she takes
But she is also a part

A part of the tale

We’re part of a story, part of a tale
We’re all on this journey
No one is to stay
Where ever it’s going
What is the way?
We’re part of a story, part of a tale
Sometimes beautiful and sometimes insane

No one remembers how it began.

^back to top

Deceiver of Fools

He told the tale so many times
About the dream not meant to be
In a world of the free
He plays with your mind

As faith for the future faded fast
He grows strong with their displeasure
It sets him free

Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules with fear
Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools

He rules again

He feeds on fear
Poisons the truth
To gain their faith
To lead the way
To a world of decay

He rules your heart
He will sell your soul to the grave

No hesitation he’ll make
He belongs to the dark

Please awake
And see the truth
He can only be
If you believe what he tells you
Remember who you are
What you stand for

And there will always be a way

In my heart there is a place
In my heart there is a trace
Of a small fire burning
A sheltering ray shines through this night
Although it ‘s small, it’s bright
But darkness is lurking

He will sell your soul to bitterness and cold

Fear him

Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules with fear
Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
Shall he rule again?

^back to top

Dark Wings

Why was I one of the chosen ones?
Until the fight I could not see
The magic and the strength of my power
It was beyond my wildest dreams

Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around

One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down

Don’t you die on me
You haven’t made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe
Don’t you die on me
You haven’t made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe

As they took your soul away
The night turned into the day
Blinded by your rays of life
Give us the strength we needed

In Perfect Harmony

In a world so far away

At the end of a closing day
A little child was born and raised
Deep in the forest on a hidden place
Mother never saw his face

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony

In perfect harmony

The woods protected, fulfillled his needs

Fruit by birds, honey by bees

He found shelter under trees
He grew up in their company
They became his family

A thousand seasons

They passed him by
So many times, have said goodbye
And when the spirits called out his name
To join forever, forever to stay
A forest spirit he became

Slip Of The Tongue

Sometime after midnight
The heat begins to rise,
Girl, you’d shame the Devil
With that look that’s in your eyes.
I know what’s on your mind
An’ I can’t run away,
If I don’t give you what you want
There’s going to be some hell to pay.

Creeping up behind me
Knocking at my door,
I’ll never be too blind to see
Just what you’re looking for.
You roll me over, make me moan,
Oh, such a velvet touch
You’d melt a heart of stone.

Anytime, anyplace,

I’m just the fool who puts a smile on your face.
A slave to love an’ keep you young
All it takes an’ no mistakes
Is just a slip of the tongue.

Just a slip of the tongue.

An’ if I want a little love
I gotta take a lot of pain,
Make me think a thousand times

Before I kiss again.
I’m waiting on you every day an’ every night
If I don’t try to satisfy
There’s gonna be a fist fight.

Anytime, anyplace,
I’m just the fool who puts a smile on your face.
A slave to love an’ keep you young
All it takes an’ no mistakes

Is just a slip of the tongue.

Just a slip of the tongue.

(Solo)

The sun is slowly rising
An’ I’m sinking to my knees,
I’m dying just to close my eyes
I’m begging, darlin’, please.

I hear you calling
An’ I’m crawling ‘cross the floor
I give you everything I’ve got
An’ still you ask for more.

Anytime, anyplace,
I’m just the fool who puts a smile on your face.
A slave to love an’ keep you young
All it takes an’ no mistakes

Is just a slip of the tongue.

A slip of the tongue,
Just a slip of the tongue,
Slip of the tongue,
Just a slip of the tongue,
Slip of the tongue,
A Slip of the tongue.

Cheap An’ Nasty

Come on baby.

I get so confused,
But, my heart knows you’re one of a kind.
Leather an’ lace, an angels face,
Riding on a one track mind.
You’re fully loaded with cruise control,

My four wheels rock with your back seat roll.

You’re cheap an’ nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up.
Cheap an’ nasty,
Come on an’ do the dirty with me.

I get so excited, babe, when I’m invited
To ride in your limousine,
You drive it every day, burn it every night,

I wonder how you keep it so clean.
Smooth accelerator, you get me so loose,
You keep your motor running till I run out of juice.

You’re cheap an’ nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up.
Cheap an’ nasty,
Come on an’ do the dirty with me.

(Solo)

Cheap an’ nasty…

I never knew it could be this way
An’ I never thought I’d ever complain,
But, gimme a second just to catch my breath
Babe, before you do it again.

All the boys call your name
Down the wishing well,

Baby, when you go
You’re like a cat out of hell.

You’re cheap an’ nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up.
Cheap an’ nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up.
Cheap an’ nasty,
All you wanna do is give it up, give it up.

Cheap an’ nasty,
Come on an’ do the dirty with me.

Come on an’ do the dirty,
Come on an’ do the dirty,
Come on an’ do the dirty with me.
Come on an’ do the dirty with me.

Fool For Your Loving

I was born under a bad sign,
Left out in the cold,
I’m a lonely man who knows
Just what it means
To lose control.
But, I took all the heartache
And turned it into shame,

Now I’m movin’, movin’ on
And I ain’t taking the blame.

Don’t come running to me
I know I’ve done all I can,
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man.

So I can say it to you, babe,
I’ll be a fool for your loving no more,

A fool for your loving no more.
I’m so tired of trying,
I always end up crying,
A fool for your loving no more,
I’ll be a fool for your loving no more.

I’m tired of hiding my feelings,
You left me lonely too long.
I gave my heart, and you tore it apart,

Oh, baby, you done me wrong.

Don’t come running to me
I know I’ve done all I can,
A hard loving woman like you
Just makes a hard loving man.

So I can say it to you baby,
I’ll be a fool for your loving no more,
Fool for your loving no more.

I’m so tired of trying,
I always end up crying,
A fool for your loving no more
I’ll be a fool for your loving no more.
I’ll be a fool for your loving no more, no more, no more.

(Solo)

So I can say it to you baby,
I’ll be a fool for your loving no more,

Fool for your loving no more.
I’m so tired of trying,
I always end up crying,
Fool for your loving no more.
A fool for your loving no more,
No more, no more.

Fool for your loving no more…

A Fool for your loving no more.

Now You’re Gone

Now you’re gone
I can feel my heart is breaking,
An’ I can’t go on
When I think of the love that you’ve taken.

In the night I pray for your embrace,

Every time I close my eyes
I can’t escape your face.
You’re out of sight,
But, always on my mind,
I never realised
My love could be so blind.

You’re all I want,
Can’t you feel the love

In this heart of mine.
You’re all I need,
So maybe we could turn back
The hands of time,
Maybe we could give it another try
One more time.

But, now you’re gone
There’s an emptiness closing around me,

An’ I can’t go on
When all I have left is the memory.

In the night I call out your name,
I wake up in a cold sweat
An’ I’m all alone again.
I need your love
Much more than I can say,
I realise without you

I can’t face another day.

You’re all I want,
Can’t you feel the love
In this heart of mine.
You’re all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I’ve been losing my mind.
You’re all that I want,

So maybe we could turn back
The hands of time,
Maybe we could give it
Another try
One more time,
Baby, just one more time.

(Solo)

Now you’re gone

I can feel my heart is breaking,
An I can’t go on
When all of my love has been taken.

You’re all I want,
Can’t you feel the love
In this heart of mine.
You’re all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,

I’ve been losing my mind.

You’re all I want,
Can’t you feel the love
In this heart of mine.
You’re all that I need,
Since I lost you, girl,
I’ve been losing my mind…

Kittens Got Claws

Walking down the street
You’re the center of my universe.
You got the world in your pocket,
My manhood in your purse.
You ain’t a bad girl, honey,
No matter what the neighbours say,
It’s just that you were those skin-tight dresses

With your G-string tuned to “A”.

Sweet, sweet, child of the street.

Heaven sent, you’re an angel dressed in black,
Cool, stiletto strut, you’re a drop jaw cardiac.
You’re the genuine, feline, prettiest girl I’ve ever seen,
With your thief of hearts smile
You’re a certified pleasure machine.

Sweet, sweet, child of the street.

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr.

But, the kittens got claws,
She’ll tear your heart out.
The kittens got claws,
She’ll scratch your back.

The kittens got claws
She’ll tease an’ please you.
The kittens got claws,
She’s a heart attack.

You treat me good,
Sometimes you treat me bad,
But, keep it up, honey,
You’re the best time I’ve ever had.

No matter what you put me through I must confess,
Oh, you got more style than a brand new XJS.

Sweet, sweet, child of the street.

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr.

But, the kittens got claws,

She’ll tear your heart out.
The kittens got claws,
She’ll scratch your back.
The kittens got claws,
She’ll tease an’ please you.
The kittens got claws,
She’s a heart attack.

(Solo)

Walking down the street
You’re the center of my universe.
You got the world in your pocket,
My manhood in your purse.
I know you ain’t a bad girl, honey,
No matter what the neighbours say,
It’s just that you were those skin-tight dresses
With your G-string tuned to “A”.

Sweet, sweet, child of the street.

Dressed to kill in diamonds and fur,
You get what you want
With your pussy cat purr.

But, the kittens got claws,
She’ll tear your heart out.
The kittens got claws,

She’ll scratch your back.
The kittens got claws,
She’ll tease an’ please you.
The kittens got claws,
She’ll blow your stack.

The kittens got claws,
She’ll tear your heart out.
The kittens got claws,

She’ll scratch your back.
The kittens got claws,
She’ll tease an’ please you.
The kittens got claws,
She’s a heart attack.

You scratch my back, baby,
An’ I’ll scratch yours.

Wings Of The Storm

On an’ on, the road goes on,
An’ it’ll go on forever,
Time will show if you and I
Will walk that road together.
Through fire an’ water, ice an’ snow,
Heaven above us, an’ hell below,
Holding on, trying to walk the line

With sweet temptation running close behind.

I’m talking ’bout love.
Ooh, love.

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that’s yearning, more an’ more.
A love to keep us warm
On the wings of the storm.

Everyday an’ every night
I keep hoping it’ll be all right,
Trying to leave the past behind,
Still looking for some peace of mind.
But, destiny brought us together
An’ promised us a time that would last forever.
Tho’ it’s all been said before
It’s the kind of love worth fighting for.

I’m talking about love.
Ooh, love.

Like a fire forever burning,
A flaming heart that’s yearning, more an’ more.
A love to keep you warm
On the wings of the storm.

(Solo)

On an’ on, the road goes on,

A flaming heart that’s yearning, more an’ more.

A love to keep us warm
On the wings of the storm.
My love will keep you warm
On the wings of the storm.

The Deeper The Love

When I look back

On everything I’ve done
I know you must have cried
A river of tears,
But, you were there
When I was feeling low
To walk me through my darkest fears.

So when the sun goes down
An’ those nights grow colder,

I will be there
Looking over your shoulder.

An’ the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An’ the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion.

There were times
I almost let you go

When I thought I needed to break free,
But you were there
To whisper in my ear
Why don’t you share my dreams with me.

So when the sun goes down
An those nights are growing colder
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder.

An’ the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An’ the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion.

I don’t mind, what you’re doing to me,
I don’t mind, ’cause you’re all I can see
I don’t mind, baby, you mean the world to me.

When the sun goes down
An’ those nights are growing colder,
I will be there
Looking over your shoulder, baby, baby, baby.

(Solo)

So When the sun goes down
An’ those nights are growing colder,
I will be there

Looking over your shoulder.

‘Cause the deeper the love
The stronger the emotion,
An’ the stronger the love
The deeper the devotion…

I never gonna let you go,
In my heart, I know.
I love you, I love you.

Oh baby, I really love you…

Judgement Day

The night is gone,
The time has come
To find a new day has begun,
An’ it promises to stay.

To soothe the pain of wasted years
An’ kiss away the bitter tears
A love to light the way.

And from the darkness
Comes a smile,
That reaches out for many miles,
Touching everyone.
No more shadows of the past,

Your spirit free to fly at last,
Shining in the sun.

Like the rolling thunder,
I feel the power of love,
It’s a gift from heaven
And the Lord above.

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand

Through fields of fire.
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day.

Take it easy, take it slow,
I’ll take you anywhere you wanna go,
Places never seen before.
‘Cause I love you, an’ I need you,
I’ll do my best to please you,

My love can open any door.

When you hear the thunder
In your darkest night,
I’ll be there to hold you
When the lightning strikes.

So don’t you worry,
You can ease your mind
‘Cause we’ll be dancing

At the end of time.

Who loves you, who needs you,
Who’ll do his best to please you,
I love you, I need you
I’ll get down on my knees.

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire.

With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day.

(Solo)

So don’t you worry, baby
On the road to Judgement Day.
Who loves you, who needs you
On the road to Judgement Day.

So I love you, and I need you.
My love can open any door.
My love can open any door.

Slow Poke Music

Y’know the joint was jumping
Like a dancing fool,

I saw you standing in the corner
Looking oh, so cool.
I had a word with the D.J.
To make the music hot,
I’m gonna get you on the dance floor
If you are ready or not.

Slow poke music,
I’ll get you down to the bone.

Slow poke music,
I’ll never leave you alone, I’ll never leave you.

When you move it to the left,
Or you shake it to the right,
No matter what you do, babe,
It’s like dynamite.
With your sweet French perfume
An’ that criminal walk,

You know you’d melt my ice cream
With your body talk.

Slow poke music,
I’ll get you down to the bone.
Slow poke music,
I’ll never leave you alone, I’ll never leave you.

I’m gonna shake you down,
Girl, I’m won’t do you no harm.

(Solo)

Well, you move so fine,
Like stepping on glass,
An’ when you give me that smile,
I see lightning flash.
East an’ West, North an’ South,
Oh babe, you’re so hot
I’m gonna melt in your mouth.

Slow poke music,
I’ll get you down to the bone.
Slow poke music,
Get into it, babe,
Slow poke music,
I’ll nail it down to the bone.
Slow poke music,
Baby, baby, baby, baby.

Girl, I’ll never leave you alone.

Sailing Ships

Do you remember
Standing on the shore,
Head in the clouds,
Your pockets filled with dreams.

Bound for glory
On the seven seas of life,
But, the ocean is deeper than it seems.

The wind was with you
When you left on the morning tide,
You set your sail for an island in the sun,
On the horizon, dark clouds up ahead,
For the storm has just begun.

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
Lead me to the distant shore.

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky.
Take the time to see
You’re the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass you by.

You cry for mercy,
When you think you’ve lost your way,
You drift alone, if all your hope is gone.
So find the strength and you will see
You control, your destiny,
After all is said and done.

So take me with you,
Take me far away,

An’ lead me to the distant shore.

Sail your ship across the water,
Spread your wings across the sky.
Take the time to see
You’re the one who holds the key,
Or sailing ships will pass,
Sailing ships will pass you,
Sailing ships will pass you by.

Take me with you,
Take me far away,
We’ll ride the wind across the sky.
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don’t pass you by.

(Solo)

So take me with you,
Take me far away,
We’ll ride the wind across the sky.
Spread your wings and you will see
You control, your destiny,
So sailing ships don’t pass,
So sailing ships don’t pass you,
So sailing ships don’t pass you by.

Baby, baby, baby, baby,
You’ll find that you’re the only one
Can sail your ship across the sky.

Crying In The Rain

A black cat moans

When he’s burning with the fever,
A stray dog howls
When he’s lonely in the night,
A woman goes crazy
With the though of retribution
But, a man starts weeping
When he’s sick and tired of life.

I keep on dreaming dreams of tomorrow

Feel I’m wasting my time
Lighting candles in the wind.
Always taking my chances
On the promise of the future
But, a heart full of sorrow
Paints a lonely tapestry.

The sun is shining
Oh, but, it’s raining in my heart.

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
‘Cos no one ever sees the tears
When you’re crying in the rain,
When you’re crying in the rain,
Crying in the rain.

I can never deny
All the sweet things I have tasted,

Tho’ I’ve been mistreated
I keep coming back for more, more, more.
I know where I’m going
There’s no hope of absolution,
I can’t seem to separate
The good times from the bad.

The sun is shining
Oh baby, it’s still raining in my heart, in my heart.

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
No one ever sees the tears
When you’re crying in the rain,
When you’re crying in the rain,
When you’re crying in the rain,
When you’re crying in the rain, no, no, no.

(Solo)

The sun is shining
But, it’s raining in my heart.

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
No one ever sees the tears
When you’re crying in the rain…

Crying in the rain,

Crying in the rain.

Bad Boys

I know you, you know me
I’m the black sheep of the family,
I’m in an’ out of trouble
I’m the talk of the town.

I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down.

I steal around, like a thief in the night
Dancing ’til the break of day.

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight.
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,

Wild in the city.

I see you, you see me
Just a black street boy in society
With high-heeled women full of champagne an’ lies,
Getting wild in the street
‘Til the hot sunrise.
Stealing round like a thief in the night
Dancing ’til the break of day.

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight.
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city.

(Solo)

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight.
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,

I’m the talk of the town.
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down.

I don’t care what the people think,
I can’t hear what the people say,
I steal around like a thief in the night
Dancing ’til the break of day.

Bad, bad boys,

Running undercover of moonlight.
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Bad, bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight.
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city.

Undercover of moonlight…

Still Of The Night

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door.
In the Still of the Night

I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more.

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what’s in store,
My heart start aching.
My body start a shaking
And I can’t take no more, no, no.

Now I just wanna get close to you
An’ taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat.

In the Still of the Night.
In the Still of the Night.
Over here baby.

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun.
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I’m waiting for the night to come.

In the Still of the Night,
In the cool moonlight,

I feel heart is aching
In the Still of the Night.

(Solo)

Tell me here baby.

In the Still of the Night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door.

In the Still of the Night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more.

An’ taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat.

Here I Go Again

I don’t know where I’m going
But, I sure know where I’ve been.

Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday,
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time
But, here I go again, here I go again.

Tho’ I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what I’m looking for.
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on,
‘Cos I know what it means

To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own,
Going down the only road I’ve ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time.

Just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on love’s sweet charity.

An’ I’m gonna hold on for the rest of my days,
‘Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own,
Going down the only road I’ve ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time.

But, here I go again, here I go again,
Here I go again, here I go.

(Solo)

An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time.

Here I go again on my own,
Going down the only road I’ve ever known.

Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An’ I’ve made up my mind,
I ain’t wasting no more time.

Here I go again on my own,
Going down the only road I’ve ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
‘Cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams…

But, my heart got in the way.
I couldn’t stop myself from reaching out,

I could not turn away.

Is This Love

I should have known better
Than to let you go alone,
It’s times like these
I can’t make it on my own.
Wasted days, and sleepless nights
And I can’t wait to see you again.

I find I spend my time
Waiting on your call,
How can I tell you, baby
My back’s against the wall.
I need you by my side
To tell me it’s alright,
‘Cos I don’t think I can take anymore.

Is this love that I’m feeling,

Is this the love, that I’ve been searching for.
Is this love or am I dreaming,
This must be love,
‘Cos it’s really got a hold on me,
A hold on me.

I can’t stop the feeling
I’ve been this way before
But, with you I’ve found the key

To open any door.
I can feel my love for you
Growing stronger day by day,
An’ I can’t wait to see you again
So I can hold you in my arms.

Is this love that I’m feeling,
Is this the love, that I’ve been searching for.
Is this love or am I dreaming,

This must be love,
‘Cos it’s really got a hold on me,
A hold on me.

Is this love that I’m feeling,
Is this the love, that I’ve been searching for.

Is this love or am I dreaming,

Is this the love, that I’ve been searching for…

I’m coming round to see you,
Kicking down your door.

I’ve got to tell you girl
I really can’t take no more.

Giving all the boys the blues.

I’m coming after you,

I’ll tell you want I’m gonna do.

I’m going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy.
Going straight for the heart

Don’t Turn Away

You say your dreams are burned to ashes
And your smiles have turned to tears,
It seems to me you welcome sanest
As you surrender to your fears.

So what’s a man like me supposed to do
When all I want is just to make love to you.

Don’t turn away, before the night is over.
Don’t turn away, before the night is gone.
Don’t turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don’t turn away, before the night,
Before the night is gone.

You say your heart is lost forever
And you’re always gonna give your love in vain.
So you paint yourself a lonely portrait

And hide your love away again.

You turn away from what you feel inside,
You can’t forget all your foolish pride.

Don’t turn away, before the night is over.
Don’t turn away, before the night is gone.
Don’t turn away, the night may hold the answer.
So don’t turn away, before the night is gone.

(Solo)

So now I’m asking you this question
Am I gonna give you all my love in vain.
Do you wanna drown in your own sorrow
Or are you gonna try to love again.

Don’t turn away from what you feel inside,
You should try to forget about all your foolish pride.

Don’t turn away, before the night is over.
Don’t turn away, before the night is gone.
Don’t turn away, the night may hold the answer.
So don’t turn away, before the night,
Before the night,
Before the night is gone.

Don’t turn away from me baby,
No, no, no, no.

Don’t put me away,
Don’t walk away from me darling.
I need your love,
Oh baby,
I need your love to rescue me,
An’ I’m coming for you, baby.
