Talk on Corners
Talk on CornersOnly When I Sleep
you're only just a dream boat / sailing in my head / you swim my secret oceans / of coral blue and red / your smell is incense burning / your touch is silken yet / it reaches through my skin / moving from within / and clutches at my breast / [chorus] but it's only when I sleep / I see you in my dreams / got me spinning round and round / turning upside down / but I only hear you breathe / somewhere in my sleep / got me spinning round and round / turning upside down / but it's only when I sleep / when I wake from slumber / your shadow's disappeared / your breath is just a sea mist / surrounding my body / I'm working through the daytime / but when it's time to rest / I'm lying in my bed / listening to my breath / falling from the edge / [repeat chorus] / it's reaching through my skin / moving from within / and clutches at my breast / [repeat chorus] / up to the sky / where angels fly / I'll never die / Hawaiian high
When He's Not Around
he's uncool an unsophisticat / he's a tightrope walker on an open path / he's a maze of curiosity / he is the living bread that cures my appetite / [chorus] I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep / when he's not around / every day is bluey grey / when he's not in town / his mystique is one of innocence / I feel I'm lounging in lovely in his big blue eyes / and I would be preening in paradise / if I were always beside him like a Siamese / [repeat chorus] / when he's not in town / can I keep him in my galaxy / can he live within my fantasy / [repeat chorus to fade]
now here you go again you say you want your freedom / well who am I to keep you down / it's only right that you should play the way you feel it / but listen carefully to the sound / of your loneliness / [bridge] like a heartbeat drives you mad / and the stillness of the memory of what you had / and what you lost / [chorus] thunder only happens when it's raining / and players only love you when they're playing / women, they will come and they will go / when the rain washes you clean you'll know / you'll know / now here I go again I see with crystal vision / I keep my visions to myself / it's only me that wants to wrap around your dreams/ and have you any dreams you'd like to sell / dreams of loneliness / [repeat bridge] / [repeat chorus twice] / you'll know / you will know
What Can I Do
I haven't slept at all in days / it's been so long since we have talked / and I have been here many times / I just don't know what I'm doing wrong / [chorus] what can I do to make you love me / what can I do to make you care / what can I say to make you feel this / what can I do to get you there / there's only so much I can take / and I just got to let it go / and who knows I might feel better / if I don't try and I don't hope / [repeat chorus] / no more waiting, no more aching / no more fighting, no more trying / maybe there's nothing more to say / and in a funny way I'm calm / because the power is not mine / I'm just gonna let it fly / [repeat chorus] / love me...
I Never Loved You Anyway
you bored me with your stories / I can't believe that I endured you for as long as I did / I'm happy it's over, I'm only sorry / that I didn't make the move before you / and when you go I will remember / to send a thank you note to that girl / I see she's holding you so tender / well I just wanna say / [chorus] I never really loved you anyway / no I didn't love you anyway / I never really loved you anyway / I'm so glad you're moving away / valentino I don't think so / you watching MTV while I lie dreaming in an MT bed / and come to think of it / I was misled / my flat my food my everything / and thoughts inside my head / before you go I must remember / to have a quiet word with that girl / does she know you're not a spender / well I just have to say / [repeat chorus] / I'm so happy you're moving away / and when you go I will remember / I must remember to say / I never really loved you anyway / no I didn't love you anyway / I never really loved you anyway / I never really loved you anyway / no I didn't love you anyway / never truly loved you anyway / I'm so happy you're moving away / yeah I'm delighted you're moving away
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / we are taking it easy / bright and breezy, yeah / we are living it up / just fine and dandy, yeah / we are caught in a haze on these lazy summer days / we're spending all of our nights just / a-laughing and kissing, yeah / [bridge] and it really doesn't matter that we don't eat / and it really doesn't matter that we never sleep / no it really doesn't matter, really doesn't matter at all / [chorus] 'coz we are so young now, we are so young, so young now / and when tomorrow comes, we can do it all again / we are chasing the moon / just running wild and free / we are following through / every dream, and every need / [repeat bridge] / coz we are so young now, we are so young, so young now / and when tomorrow comes, we can do it all again / yeah we are so young now, we are so young, so young now / and when tomorrow comes, we'll just do it all again / all again, all again, yeah / all again, all again / yeah yeah yeah so young now, we are so, so young now / and when tomorrow comes, we'll just do it all again / yeah we are so young now, we are so young so young now / and when tomorrow comes, we'll just do it all again / we are so young
Don't Say You Love Me
I've seen this place a thousand times / I've felt this all before / and every time you call / I've waited there as though you might not call at all / I know this face I'm wearing now / I've seen this in my eyes / and though it feels so great I'm still afraid / that you'll be leaving anytime / [bridge] we've done this once and then you closed the door / don't let me fall again for nothing more / [chorus] don't say you love me unless forever / don't tell me you need me if you're not gonna stay / don't give me this feeling, I'll only believe it / make it real or take it all away / I've caught myself smiling alone / just thinking of your voice / and dreaming of your touch is all too much / you know I don't have any choice / [repeat chorus] / [repeat bridge and chorus]
Love Gives, Love Takes
just when I thought it was safe / you found me in my hiding place / I'd promised never again / I wouldn't give my heart, but then / closer, closer I moved near you / the way I want you makes me fear you / [chorus] love breaks and love divides / love laughs and love can make you cry / I can't believe the ways / that love can give / and love can take away / I find it hard to explain / it's crazy, but it's happening / and I'm falling again / much further than I've ever been / I'm falling deeper than the ocean / I am lost in this emotion / [repeat chorus] / aah... aah... aah... / that love can give, and love can take away / [repeat chorus to fade]
opened my eyes today / and I knew there's something different / saw you in a brand new way / like the clouds had somehow lifted / and if yesterday I heard / myself saying these words / I would swear it was a lie / [chorus] I don't know why but suddenly I'm falling / was I so blind / I was loving you all the time / now I'm hopelessly addicted / helplessly attracted / I'll make a wish this day / and I'll send it to the heavens / that we will always stay / entwined like this forever / and though the world may change / 'coz nothing stays the same / I know we will survive / [repeat chorus] / naturally we acted, yeah / [repeat chorus] / helplessly attracted / chemically reacted / I was loving you all the time / hopelessly addicted / helplessly attracted / chemically reacted / naturally we acted
last night before you fell asleep / you whispered something to me / was it just a dream? / I'm gonna listen to you close / 'coz your goodnight kiss / felt like a ghost / what are you trying to say to me? / what are you trying to say? / [chorus] everybody's searching for intimacy / ooh ooh ooh ooh / everybody's hurting for intimacy / ooh ooh ooh ooh / we come into this world alone / from the heart of darkness / the infinite unknown / we're only here a little while / and I feel safe and warm / when I see you smile / baby don't move away from me / baby don't pull away / [repeat chorus] / remember when you were a child / and your momma would hold you in her arms / and rock you to sleep / now darling there's just you and I / let's give each other everything, baby baby... / [repeat chorus] / baby come and lay down next to me / ooh ooh ooh ooh / everybody's searching for intimacy / ooh ooh ooh ooh
Queen of Hollywood
she drove a long way through the night / from an urban neighborhood / she left her mother in a fight / for a dream misunderstood / and her friends they talk on corners / they could never comprehend / but there was always something different / in the way she held a stare / and the pictures that she painted / were of glamour and of flair / and her boyfriend though he loved her / knew he couldn't quite fulfill / he could never meet here there / [chorus] she's never gonna be like the one before / she read it in her stars that there's something more / no matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks / she'll be the Queen of Hollywood / and the cynics they all wondered / what's the difference with this dream / and the dreams of countless others / all believing in TV? / they see their hand prints in a sidewalk / flashing cameras on the scene / and a shining limousine / [repeat chorus] / she's believing in a dream / it's a loaded fantasy / now her mother collects cutouts / and the pictures make her smile / but if she saw behind the curtains / it could only make her cry / she's got hand prints on her body / sad moonbeams in her eyes / not so innocent a child / [repeat chorus] / no she's never gonna be like the one before / she read it in her stars that there's something more / no matter what it takes, and even though she breaks / she'll be the Queen of Hollywood / she is the Queen of Hollywood, Queen of Hollywood / and her friends still talk on corners / she is the Queen of Hollywood...
No Good for Me
I see a home in a quiet place / I see myself in a strong embrace / and I feel protection from the human race / it's not parental / but it's a fantasy, not a reality / and it's no good, no, no good for me, you have no idea / [chorus] that I'm walking through the clouds / when you're looking at me / I'm feeling like a child / vulnerability / I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me / and you're all that I see / but it's no good for me / you have a home in a quiet place / and someone else feels your strong embrace / she is protected and she needs no chase / and do you love her? / you're a mystery, you are the heart of intrigue / you're no good, no, no good for me / you have no idea / [repeat chorus] / it's a make-believe, you have no idea / that I'm walking through the clouds / when you're looking at me / I'm feeling like a child / vulnerability / I am shaking like a leaf when you move close to me / and you're all that I see / but it's no good, just no good, no good / through the clouds / when you're looking at me / I'm feeling like a child / vulnerability / I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me / and you're all that I see / but it's no good, it's just no good for me
now she's walking thru the clouds / with a circus mind / that's running wild / butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and fairytales / all she ever thinks about is / riding with the wind / when I'm sad she comes to me / with a thousand smiles / she gives to me free / it's alright it's alright she says / take anything you want from me / anything / fly little wing...
