Lyrics to all the songs on “Dream”

I CAN STILL DREAM

She has her fine silks and wine but I can still dream
She’s near you most of the time, but I can still dream
A love that fell at the start
You have control of my heart
I’m falling apart — I can still dream

You whisper to me goodnight and leave me to dream
You’re home and holding her tight; all I do is dream
Temptation opened the door
I can’t help wanting much more
Will you be here or will I still...

Dream, dream of an ocean breeze
You’re sailing with me on the rolling seas
But the dream gets washed away
In the cold, clear light of day

She has your home and your life, but I still can dream
And though it cuts like a knife I’ll live with my dream
Just as the doubts start to rise
You look at me with those eyes
And I fantasise, together we...

Dream, dream of a heated night
Why when you hold me does it feel so right?
But then it’s gone and so are you
But then, some say that dreams come true

And as I sink deeper still into my dream
I know one day tears will spill and swallow my dream
Till then I’ll wait at the door until I see you once more
You’re worth waiting for, so is my dream

Ah, ah, ah, I still can dream
Ah, ah, ah, I still can dream
Ah, ah, ah, I still can dream
 

WHAT I’M FEELING

You ask me what I’m feeling; I’m scared to let it show
If you should look into my eyes
You’d see all you need to know
But I can’t let you look that deep and give myself away
And what I feel for you is much too much to say

Didn’t want to have these feelings, I know it isn’t right
A giant gate stands locked before us
And there’s not a key in sight
But all I do is think of you each moment of the day
And what I feel for you is just too much to say

Words can only say so much
Some things are best unsaid
We can only feel and wonder why
How can we make a treasured moment turn into a life
I don’t know, but we can only try

Don’t ask me what I’m feeling
I don’t want to show the pain
That I’m feeling till the morning when I see you again
As we grasp each stolen moment
As we hide and run away
When the things we feel are much too much to say

Don’t ask me what I’m feeling
Just hold me when you can
I won’t look towards tomorrow
And I’ll always understand
And I will be there if you need me
But I won’t be in your way
And what I’m feeling do I really need to say?
What I'm feeling do I really need to say?
 

NEVER BE SURE

Looking back, we could have said so much more
More we could have done, to even the score
It’s the same old story, we’ve all heard before
You do what you can, but you can never be sure

Daisy chains, coloured crayons, child life things
That paint pretty pictures on butterfly wings
That fly to the future tomorrow will bring
But it won’t teach the song that tomorrow will sing

New light flows when a new moon shines
Below our world shimmers in a blue light so fine
Behind closed doors lovers entwine
As they search for the song that tomorrow will sing

Looking back, we could have said so much more
More we could have done, to even the score
It’s the same old story, we’ve all heard before
You do what you can, but you can never be sure

Time passes on and young dreams will fade
Along with the promises, we once made
Before true life grew and put hope in the shade
Of the song we believe that tomorrow will sing

Looking back, we could have said so much more
More we could have done, to even the score
It’s the same old story, we’ve all heard before
You do what you can, but you can never be sure

It’s the same old story, we’ve all seen before
You do what you can, but you can never be sure
 

SEA HORSES DANCE

The wind and the rain chill her skin once again
As she sits on her rock by the sea
Her feelings inside ebb and flow like the tide
And she wonders how long it will be
As her heart feels the strain
Of the bliss and the pain
Of a love that can never be free
Oh...

The morning mist clears and she watches her tears
As they mix with the salt of the brine
The spray clothes her hair and she’s acutely aware
Maybe this time she’s run out of time
And the lighthouse stands by
Throwing beams in the sky
As she searches for some hidden sign
Oh...

With her clothes getting wet she tries to forget
But each sound seems to hold a reminder
As she moves down the sand with a rock in her hand
She is constantly looking behind her
And the gulls hear her pray
That he’ll visit the bay
In this place where he knows he will find her
Oh...

But the lights getting dim as the tide comes back in
And she knows that she really must go
With a last backward glance sees the sea horses dance
And the glint of the shells down below
And in some other town
As he pulls the blinds down
He discovers he misses her...
Oh...
 

ARE YOU THINKING OF ME NOW

Are you thinking of me now
As you’re standing by the sea
Are you remembering my kiss
Do you miss it like I miss
When you’re so far away from me

Are you thinking of me now
As you drive the long way home
Remember how I feel to touch
Do you need it half as much
As I need you when I’m alone

Are you thinking of me now
As you’re lying in your bed
And as you look into her face
Can you see me in her place
And wish that I was there instead

Are you thinking of me now
As you’re lying in your bed
And as you look into her face
Can you see me in her place
And wish that I was there instead

And are you looking for me now
When I’m not where I said I’d be
And are you suddenly afraid
Do you wish you could have stayed
And are you scared of losing me

Are you thinking of me now
As you begin to feel the pain
Of hiding love behind closed doors
You want to tell them that I’m yours
Before I disappear again

Are you thinking of me now (are you thinking of me now)
Are you thinking of me now (can I get through somehow)

Can you hear me sing your song
Does it feel like I belong
If only time would just...
 

ANGEL

You have the deepest eyes that I have ever seen
They take in every thought I have
And question all I’ve been
They smile when you smile
Your smile means everything to me
You’re like a guardian angel, who holds my destiny

You recognise my faults
Though they’re not always faults to you
You recognise my feelings
And seem surprised to see they’re true
You hurt when you can’t help me
You hurt when I’m alone
You shoulder all my problems
And you make them all your own

I’m selfish and I’m greedy, I’m impatient and I’m vain
I’m sure I would deserve it if I was never loved again

But now we’ve reached a cross-roads
For me the only way’s ahead
I know I can’t take all of you
I’ll take half of you instead
Mistakes we’ve made in recent times can never reappear
’Cause I’ve used up all my chances
You’ve made that very clear

Be sure now that my love for you
Is much too strong to lose
Be sure whoever blocks my path
It’s always you I’ll choose
Be sure that if you walk away it won’t be because of me
Be sure my guardian angel, I give you my destiny

I’m selfish and I’m greedy, I’m impatient and I’m vain
I’m sure that I’d deserve it if I was never loved again

(Angelo…)

I’m sure that I’d deserve it if I was never loved again
 

GHOST IN MY HEART

Sat down to write you a letter
I wanted you to know
I’m doing fine without you
And I need to tell you so...

You would be really proud of me
My job is going well
Yes, everything is fine with me
And it’s you I need to tell

I used to see you every day
And sleep with you each night
But everything just slipped away
And now we only fight

And I sat down to write you a letter
I wanted you to know
I’m doing fine without you
And I need to tell you so...

Remember we were lovers
We said we’d never part
But now that’s gone and all that’s left
Is a ghost here in my heart

You haunt me in my dreams
You haunt me in my mind
But love, you know without you
I am really doing fine

So I sat down to write you a letter
I wanted you to know
I’m doing fine without you
And I need to tell you so

So I sat down to write you a letter
I didn’t know where to start
So I’ll just carry you with me
You’re a ghost here in my heart...
A ghost here in my heart...
A ghost here in my heart...
A ghost here in my heart...
 

WE’LL BE ALRIGHT

Sometimes it seems, no matter what
Life still lets you down
I know you feel you’re wasting your time
You feel like a clown
Sometimes you wake and find yourself crying
In the middle of the night
But hear what I say
At the end of the day
We’ll be alright

I know you’re torn by what’s in your heart
And what you must be
I know you’re scared of losing your life
And losing me
I know that there’s times when I seem within reach
But I’m really out of sight
But keep hold of my heart
And when we’re apart
We’ll be alright

There won’t be a time that this will be easy
And our future may never be bright
But nevertheless
I’ll hazard a guess
That we’ll be alright
But nevertheless
I’ll hazard a guess
That we’ll be alright
 

CIRCLE

Always start at the beginning, never halfway though
’Cause if you don’t when you get to the end
You’ll find that you still have more to do, ’cause

Life is like a circle, always spinning round
At the end you’re where you started
Halfway round you’re upside down

I’ve been down this road and I’ve been down that
And I’ve been down the road in between
And when I get to the end I have to start it all again
For there’s always more to be seen

Life is like a circle, always spinning round
At the end you’re where you started
Halfway round you’re upside down

If you look really hard you will find your way in
Find the key to a future life
And then you’ll know where to begin
Where to begin, where you can begin

I’ve been down this road and I’ve been down that
And I’ve been down the road in between
And when I get to the end I have to start it all again
For there’s always more to be seen

Life is like a circle, always spinning round
At the end you’re where you started
Halfway round you’re upside down

Life is like a circle, always spinning round
At the end you’re where you started
Halfway round you’re upside down

Life is like a circle, always spinning round
At the end you’re where you started
Halfway round you’re upside down

 

DOWN TO THE SEA

I’m feeling crazy
We’re getting lazy
On sunny days
We should exercise our right to be free
Come on with me

Forget the others
Let’s act like lovers
Under the covers
Behind the rocks where no-one will see
Just you and me

Pack up your bags and come
Take me down to the sea

Forget the weather
We’ll huddle together
While we endeavour
Pretending that there is just you and me
Just you and me

We haven’t swum yet
Let’s get our feet wet
Then watch the sun set
And catch a fish or two for our tea
Just you and me

Pack up your bags and then come
Take me down to the sea

What’s going on?
Why are everyone’s faces so long?!
If this makes life fun
Then I can’t see how it can be so very wrong!!

So while I’m feeling flirty
Let’s go get dirty
Pretend we’re thirty(!)
And waste time unnecessarily
Come on with me

Pack up your bags and come
Take me down to the sea

What’s going on?
Why are everyone’s faces so long?!
If this makes life fun
Then I can’t see how it can be so very wrong!!

So while I’m feeling flirty
Let’s go get dirty
Pretend we’re thirty(!)
And waste time unnecessarily
Come on with me

Pack up your bags and come
Take me down to the...
Pack up your bags and come
Take me down to the...
Pack up your bags and come
Take me down to the...
Down to the sea
 

SUMMER BRINGS THE SNOW

I’ve got a feeling things are coming to an end
So long you’ve been my lover
And my dearest friend
The seed grew to the sweetest flower
Each moment spent with you
Has been my finest hour

Though fate has been against us all along
We held on through the storms
And made our love so strong
I’ve learned so much since I’ve known you
You’ve made me feel much more than I could ever do

But love has got a way of letting go
And this will hurt me more than you can ever know
Other men may come, they’ll also go
’Cause my heart will stay with you
Until the summer brings the snow

Now things are getting harder all the time
It’s hurting me to know you never can be mine
Words said in anger or in pain
Have cut a little deeper in my soul again

And love has got a way of letting go
This will hurt me more than you can ever know
Though other men may come, they’ll also go
’Cause my heart will stay with you
Until the summer brings the snow

Although I know that this will also break your heart
We always knew that one day we’d have to part
Maybe one day you’ll hear me sing
And smile at all the memories that my songs will bring

But if you ever want to look for me
If ever something happens and you find that you are free
Seek the place that saw our love unfold
I’ll still be wearing amethyst and gold

And love has a way of letting go
And I will miss you more than you will ever know
There’s part of me that I will never show
’Cause that part will stay with you
Until the summer brings the snow
 

HOME TO STAY

I wake just as the sun breaks through
Although I’ve not been sleeping
Touch the place still warm from you
The memories it’s keeping
How long should it be this way?
Is there rhyme or reason?
What are all these games you play?
When are you coming home to stay?

The table’s always laid for two
The wine is in the glasses
I dress and pamper just for you
As each long moment passes
But as I throw it all away
I wonder at the reason
What are all these games you play?
When are you coming home to stay?

I tell my friends you’re home today
They think I’ve lost my reason
What are all these games we play?
When are you coming home to stay?

And once again the night is here
You visit in the twilight
And in my dreams it’s oh so clear
And as you hold me so tight
I wonder why you never stay
To kiss me in the morning
What are all these games you play?
When are you coming home to stay?
When are you coming home to stay?
 

CRY ON MY SHOULDER

You and me we’ve been friends so long
We’ve been right and wrong
We’ve been weak and strong
And we’ve laughed and we’ve cried
And we’ve sung the same song
So how can you say that you’re all alone

You can cry on my shoulder
Let it rain let it pour
You can cry on my shoulder
You know I’ve been there before

Through the years we’ve had much to say
So much in our way, so many paths to lay
And we’ve crawled and we’ve run
But we’ve still paved the way
So how can you think
I’m not there today

(you can)..............

Yes I know
There’s so much to do
And it’s hard for you
You can’t find a way through
But I’m there and I’m strong
I can carry you too
Like a light
I will see you through

(you can) cry on my shoulder

Let it rain, let it pour
I can’t stand the pain any more
You can cry on my shoulder
You know I’ve been there before
You know I’ve been there before
 

I STILL WAIT

You were writing your letters
As I read your name in the sand
I walked to the edge of the water
Holding your note in my hand
You’re telling me that it’s over
And everything comes to an end
You’re losing a lover but I’m losing a friend

And I still wait hoping you’ll call
Better a little love late than no love at all

I stand at the edge of a mirror
Where the daylight begins
Hearing your breath like a whisper
Waiting for darkness to end
I really thought I had grown strong
And this couldn’t happen again
But you proved me wrong
You showed me I hadn’t changed

And I still wait hoping you’ll call
Better a little love late than no love at all

I’m hearing your breath and I call out your name
Turn back the pages, hurry home to me again
Come back..........

You put ice in the heart of the season
You took life from the soul of my day
You gave me no reason
You just turned away

I still wait hoping you’ll call
Better a little love late than no love at all
I still wait hoping you’ll call......hoping you’ll call
Better a little love late than no love at all
I still wait hoping you’ll call
 

AFRICA

Who are the people of Africa?
Some say, “it’s us” some say, “it’s them”
Who are the people of Africa?
The people here now or the people here when
The day was as long as the sun
Children were free to run
Long before the white man come
To bring order to Africa

Who are the children of Africa?
The ones who ask or the ones who decide
Who are the children of Africa?
The ones who hide or the ones who find
There are funds across the sea
Ashamed of the legacy
Who will pay a lot of money to be free from
The price of changing Africa

The white man come to teach the black what’s right
Now it’s black man’s turn to educate the white
It’s a thorny path and the darkness can block the light
But if you look hard you can see there’s the end in sight

Who are the people of Africa?
Some say it’s us, some say it’s them
Who are the people of Africa?
The people here now or the people here when
The day was as long as the sun
Children were free to run
Long before the white man come
To bring order to Africa

What is the colour of Africa?
Some say it’s blue, some say it’s green
What is the colour of Africa?
It lies somewhere in between
There’s a lot of good people out there
A beautiful country to share
A way to make it fair for the people of Africa

People of Africa
 

“L” IS FOR LONELY

I have this dream that I took you on
Although our love could never see the sun
Despite it all I knew you were the one for me

I couldn’t help it when I looked at you
And then the thrill to know you felt it too
But now I know just what these things can do
It’s sad to see

“L” is for loser
“L” is for lost and lonely
“L” is for living in a fantasy
That’s not to be

I have this dream that when the time is right
We get together halfway through the night
But then for days you must stay out of sight
So she won’t know

Meanwhile at home I sit and wait to see
The next time you can find to be with me
Sometimes it seems like an eternity
And tears will fall

“L” is for loser
“L” is for lost and lonely
“L” is for living in a fantasy
That’s not to be

Sometimes I think that I can take no more
Sometimes I wonder what I’m dreaming for
And then I see you coming through the door
Then you smile

I see the turmoil burning in your eyes
I see the love for me you can’t disguise
I see some hope through the deceit and lies
Am I a fool?

“L” is for loser
“L” is for lost and lonely
And “L” is for living in a fantasy
That’s not to be
 

THINK OF ME

When you’re leaving in the morning, think of me
Then at work without a warning, think of me
Back at home you reach the door and turn the key
And think of me

As the night begins to fall, think of me
At the times you used to call, you’ll think of me
And when you’re walking in our places by the sea
Think of me

When you’re up, when you’re down
When your time’s spinning round
When the spring turns to summer then to fall
In the sun and the rain you will wonder again
What would have happened if we could have had it all

When you hear that sad old song, think of me
And when things are going wrong, you’ll think of me
And when you think it’s all behind you, suddenly
You’ll think of me

When you’re up, when you’re down
When your time’s spinning round
As the spring turns to summer then to fall
In the sun and the rain you will wonder again
What would have happened if we could have had it all

When you hear that sad old song, think of me
And when things are going wrong, you’ll think of me
And when you think it’s all behind you, suddenly
You’ll think of me

Think of me — think of me — think of me
