Hello Again

you might have forgot
the journey ends
you tied your knots
you made your friends
you left the scene
without a trace

one hand on the ground
one hand in space

you passed on mercy
you tried the rest
you gave your body
you gave the best
staring at the green door
living in the sky

you don’t want to know it
you just want to fly

hello again

i know you’re a dreamer
who’s under the gun
i know you’re a dreamer
who’s only just begun

and when there’s nothing
nothing left to loose
you leave it all
to fade to blue

you want to feel electric
you want to feel loose
you want to be eclectic

you want to call a truce
look at the profile
staring at the flame
waiting for the sunshine
standing in the rain

Looking For Love

come on lover
make the switch
pull the cover
make a wish
find out later
it’s all right
keep the faith
kill the light

you can’t stop
but you can’t go on
you can’t stop
but it won’t be long

here she comes
looking for love

come on lover
do it fast

take advantage
while love lasts
limited edition
you’re the one
walking the edge
don’t you run

Magic

summer turns me upside down
summer summer summer
it’s like a merry go round
i see you under the midnight
all shackles and bows
how far will you take it
well no one knows

don’t let me go
i got a hold on you tonight

oh oh it’s magic
when i’m with you
oh oh it’s magic
you know it’s true
got a hold on you

twisted under sideways down
i know you’re getting twisted
and you can’t calm down
i see you under the midnight
love darts in your eyes
how far can you take it
till you realize
there’s magic in your eyes

Drive

who’s gonna tell you when
it’s too late
who’s gonna tell you things
aren’t so great
you can’t go on

thinking nothing’s wrong
who’s gonna drive you home tonight

who’s gonna pick you up
when you fall
who’s gonna hang it up
when you call
who’s gonna pay attention
to your dreams

who’s gonna plug their ears
when you scream

you can’t go on
thinking nothing’s wrong
who’s gonna drive you home tonight

who’s gonna hold you down
when you shake

who’s gonna come around
when you break

Stranger Eyes

you took the fall
you floated down
you took the jump

you fell through clouds
you watched the world
beat the crowd
come on ride me high
stranger eyes

you took the fall
you landed soft
thought to yourself

well i’m not alone
with your dark red soul
and your chaperone
come on ride me high
stranger eyes

well i need your touch
it means so much
some on ride me high

stranger eyes

You Might Think

you might think i’m crazy
to hang around with you
maybe you think i’m lucky

to have something to do
but i think that you’re wild
and inside me is some child
you might think it’s foolish
or maybe it’s untrue
you might think i’m crazy
but all i want is you

you might think it’s hysterical

but i know when you’re weak
you think you’re in the movies
and everything’s so deep
but i think that you’re wild
when you flash that fragile smile
you might think it’s foolish
what you put me through
you might think i’m crazy
but all i want is you

and it’s so hard to take
there’s no escape without a scrape
you kept it going till the sun fell down
you kept it going

you might think i’m delirious
the way i run you down
but somewhere sometime

when you’re curious
i’ll be back around
and i think that you’re wild
and so uniquely styled
you might think it’s foolish
this chancey rendezvous
you might think i’m crazy
but all I want is you

It’s Not the Night

it’s not the night
for fooling
it’s not the night
for crazy eyes
i get the feeling

you want to stay
i get the feeling
you’re giving it all away
but i know
i know you take it well
and for you
for you i always fell

it’s not the night

for sweet revenge
it’s not the night
to end

the time is right
to take it out
the time is right for tango
i get the feeling
you’re running out

before your last fandango

i get the feeling
you’re the spark
that’s dancing in the dark
i get the feeling
you’re the one
rushing on the run

Why Can’t I Have You

dreamy lips set in motion flashing
breathless hush pounding soft lasting
glossy mouth taste untamed moving
carousel up and down
just like you

oh baby
just one more time to touch you
just one more time to tell you
you’re on my mind
baby, why can’t i have you
you’re breaking my heart in two
you know what i’m going through
oh baby, why can’t i have you

candy smile all the while glinting
your eyes like mica lethal pout hinting
felt the pressure tight and warm softly striking
i tripped and stumbled
i cling forever
i go all night

oh baby, just one more time to touch you

just one more time to tell you
i’m not so blind
baby, why can’t i have you
it’s breaking my heart in two
you know what i’m going through
oh baby, why can’t i have you

^back to top

I Refuse

everything’s heaven sent
that’s what you said and went
inside your fairy glass
is something you think will last
and when they crop you like a clown
you got your smile on upside down

baby i refuse
you can pick or choose
find somebody else to use
cause i refuse to come along

everything’s on a whim
that’s what you said to him
lying in wunderlust
are feeling you never trust

and when they pamper you with ice
i can’t believe you don’t think twice

everyone makes the play
with nothing much left to say
all in and endless line
waiting for equal time
they keep screaming it’s the truth
and you keep kneeling in the booth

Heartbeat City

oh heartbeat city
here we come
well happy days
we count on thumbs
and nothing really

gets us down
as long as jacki’s
back in town

i’m glad you made it
i can’t complain
i missed you badly
when you jumped that train

oh jacki
what took you so long
on just a holiday
oh jacki
what took you so long
i thought you knew the way
i thought you blew away

oh heartbeat city

never stops
and all you need
is what you got
and there’s a place
for everyone
under heartbeat city’s
golden sun

oh heartbeat city

lights at night
keeps getting closer
out of sight
oh heartbeat city’s
on the loose
better catch
the blue caboose
