Lyrics to all the songs on “Spaces”

TAKE MY HAND
Always wanted to be good at school
But I always seemed to break the rules
It’s not that I was bad
It’s just a way I had with me

When I looked into the world outside
Sometimes I just had to run and hide
I didn’t quite belong
And I always took the long way home

When raindrops hung like crystals
And they only saw the storm
I saw a million rainbows
In the place the clouds were torn

Take my hand
You may lead or you may follow
Take my hand
And I’ll show you who I am

Take my hand
You may lead or you may follow
Take my hand
And I’ll show you who I am

Can you see the things they couldn’t see
Something fragile deep inside of me
I know those times have gone
And the memory lives on you see

And like scars the dreams are fading
But they never go away
Maybe you can see beyond them
If I come with you today

Take my hand
You may lead or you may follow
Take my hand
And I’ll show you who I am

Take my hand
You may lead or you may follow
Take my hand
And I’ll show you who I am

Always wanted to be good at school
But I always seemed to break the rules
Take my hand



FANTASY

Once in a while when things aren’t clear
You creep into my mind, my dear
On rainy days when clouds appear
You bring your misery right here
And memories reveal the things that I can’t see

Here in this place no dreams to hold
No warmth inside it just grows colder
I’m on my own, I sleep alone
I just exist as I grow older
No feelings left to see the very thought you desire

’Cause love is just a fantasy my friend
Love will have you crawling in the end
Crawling on your knees crying to me, please!

I live this life from day to day
No disappointment cause there’s no hope anyway
I watch them all so high above
Their eyes will open soon enough
But they will never learn until they crash and burn

’Cause love is just a fantasy, my friend
Love will have you crawling in the end
Crawling on your knees crying to me, please!

I still recall remember when
I was so happy I looked very much like them
I didn’t see, I hadn’t planned
And when you left I didn’t really understand
But that was long ago and now at last I know

That love is just a fantasy my friend
Love will have you crawling in the end
Crawling on your knees crying to me, please!

Love is just a fantasy my friend
Love is just a fantasy my friend
Love is just a fantasy my friend
Love is just a fantasy my friend


BIRDS IN THE MORNING
She loves the sound of birds in the morning
She loves to see the sun through the trees
She loves to feel the spray of the ocean
She follows every rainbow she sees
And she won’t give in to sorrow
’Cause it may be tomorrow
Her prince will come

She likes to watch the children out playing
She likes to feed the ducks in the park
She likes the sound of rain on her windows
She likes to watch the moon in the dark
And she always reads her stars
’Cause she knows it’s on the cards
That her prince will come

He’s just round the corner, he’ll come
He will adore her, he’ll come
He’s so laid before her, he’ll come
She knows in her heart he will come

She hides her cigarettes in the dresser
She slips the vodka under the stairs
She tries to show the neighbours she’s sober
She tries to show the world that she cares
And she tries to hide the wait
And she knows it’s getting late
But her prince will come

 
LOVE SO RIGHT
She loves her Monday morning
The weekend always seems so very long
Today she gets up early
To do her hair and put some makeup on
Her mother makes her breakfast
But she hardly eats a thing
She’s too nervous to be hungry
And determined to stay slim
For him

He scans the morning paper
Contemplates the dullness of his life
Closes up his briefcase
Throws a goodbye glance towards his wife
He knows that she will hate him
When she hears what he has done
But he just can’t help this feeling
And now all that he can do is run

’Cause sometimes love is an explosion
’Cause it chooses you without a second glance
You never know when it will hit you
And when it does you really haven’t got a chance
And as the passion and romance lead you along
You just don’t notice love so right can be so wrong

She walks into the classroom
Knows about the rumours, doesn’t care
She hears as the door opens
Doesn’t have to look to know he’s there
He tries to take the lesson
And ignore how his heart pounds
In the room there is a whisper
But he doesn’t really hear the sound

’Cause sometimes love is an explosion
And it chooses you without a second glance
You never know when it will hit you
And when it does you really haven’t got a chance
And as the passion and romance lead you along
You just don’t notice love so right can be so wrong

At four-thirty on the corner
He is waiting in his car
As she gets in to sit beside him
He knows it’s gone too far
But his love for her is stronger
Than the things that scare him most
So they cling to one another
As they head towards the coast

Sometimes love is an explosion
And it chooses you without a second glance
You never know when it will hit you
But when it does you really haven’t got a chance
And as the passion and romance lead you along
You just don’t notice love so right can be so wrong
You just don’t notice love so right can be so wrong


JUST A MAN

Please don’t knock upon my door
You’re not welcome any more
Fake your smile and go away
No, don’t call me on the phone
’Cause I might not be alone
I’m too busy anyway
Oh you won’t understand I know
You’re just a man

You may be surprised to find
I’ve left guys like you behind
You’ve got nothing that I need
Hate to hurt your little pride
But you’re just hollow down inside
So suck it up if you should bleed
Oh you’ll never understand
I know you’re just a man

Please don’t try and change my mind
You’ve had too much of my time
Your stuff’s inside your car
Try not to look so damned surprised
That I finally realised what a loser you are

Oh, please don’t try and change my mind
You’ve had too much of my time
Your stuff’s inside your car
Try not to look so damned surprised
That I finally realised what a loser you are

Let me give you some advice
The next fool might not be so nice
She might see through your little game
If you mess around with her
She might hit you where it hurts
You might never walk again
Oh but you won’t understand I know
You’re just a man
Oh, you’ll never understand I know
You’re just a man
Oh, you’ll never understand I know
You’re just a man


SPACES
I fill my life with many faces
And travel far to foreign places
I try to fill up all the spaces
And hide my tracks to leave no traces
But even though I do, I end up missing you

My life has always had you in it
Every hour with you is like a minute
And each new challenge, we could win it
The perfect family we were it
We forget that it can’t last
And now you are my past

How can I fill the space you left me
I try so hard but it’s still empty
I could fill a thousand days
But where love was the memory stays
How to replace the time I gave you
I never will although I need to
And no matter what I do
I just can’t fill the space that’s left by you

I sometimes leave a message for you
To tell you how much I adore you
But then I’m weak and I implore you
To come back home if there’s a way for you
To live your life again
And to help to ease the pain

How can I fill the space you left me
I try so hard but it’s still empty
I could fill a thousand days
But where love was the memory stays
How to replace the time I gave you
I never will although I need to
And no matter what I do
I just can’t fill the space that’s left by you

How can I fill the space you left me
I try so hard but it’s still empty
I could fill a thousand days
But where love was the memory stays
How to replace the time I gave you
I never will although I need to
And no matter what I do
I just can’t fill the space that’s left by you


HOME
Another Thursday morning, not a lot to do
You flick through magazines but nothing inspires you
You take the car and try some retail therapy
But don’t get far because you need some company
Maybe you need a holiday

But when you’re home you want to get away
But when you’re away you want to get home

Another Friday night so go and have some fun
You dress up right in case you just might meet the one
But at the nightclub, oh the music’s way too loud
You try to talk but you get drowned out by the crowd
Maybe you should turn around

But when you’re home you want to get away
And when you’re away you want to get home

Home, where the bills are pouring in
Home, where the walls are far too thin
Home, where the memories are too deep
Home, where it’s hard to get some sleep

You want to get away
And when you’re away you want to get home

You buy a ticket for a holiday in Spain
But it just brings back all those feelings once again
It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do
It just won’t heal all of the restlessness in you
And you’ll never see things through

And when you’re home you want to get away
But when you’re away you want to get home

Another Thursday morning, not a lot to do



WISH THAT I WASN’T THERE
Three o’clock in the morning
Tension in the air
One drink too many
And I wish that I wasn’t there
Door slamming behind me
Stumble down the stair
Foul smell in the alley
And I wish that I wasn’t there

Truck stop on the corner
Coffee in my hand
Clear the crap in a minute
But I doubt that I’ll understand
Headlight in the mirror
Blinds me in the glare
Don’t care where this road goes
But I wish that I wasn’t there

If I could have a penny
For each time that I’ve been wrong
Another for each person
Who has said they’d buy my song
Well maybe I’d be rich enough
To know where I belong

See my face in the mirror
Recognise the stare
But not the room behind me
And I wish that I wasn’t there
Another stage in the darkness
And the spotlights glare
Can’t see if they’re listening
But I wish that I wasn’t there

If I could have a penny
For each time that I’ve been wrong
Another for each person
Who has said they’d buy my song
Well maybe I’d be rich enough
To know where I belong

If I could have a penny
For each time that I’ve been wrong
Another for each person
Who has said they’d buy my song
Well maybe I’d be rich enough
To know where I belong

Three o’clock in the morning
Tension in the air
One drink too many
And I wish that I wasn’t there
Door slamming behind me
Stumble down the stair
Foul smell in the alley
And I wish that I wasn’t there



SOUVENIRS
I found your picture today
The one I thought I’d thrown away
Hidden deep inside a drawer
With things I don’t need any more
And debts that I never paid

You ran away with my heart
And left me broken all apart
Just like some dirt on your shoe
You brushed me off and you flew
And left me here at the start

Well here I go again
Here comes the hurt
And then the pain
Thought you had gone
Thought I’d moved on
Well here come the tears
After all of these years
Why do I keep these souvenirs?

There is a box that I hide
It has our memories inside
And the cologne that you wore
And the key to my door
And the remains of my pride

Though I forget that it’s there
Sometimes it will reappear
And then it just draws me in
And I re-live everything
As if you’re still with me here

Oh here I go again
Here comes the hurt
And then the pain
Thought you had gone
Thought I’d moved on
Well here come the tears
After all of these years
Why do I keep these souvenirs?

Just when I think I’m OK
You have a way of reaching to me
But now wherever you are
Do you realise just what you’re doing to me

Here I go again
Here comes the hurt
And then the pain
Thought you had gone
Thought I’d moved on
Well here come the tears
After all of these years
Why do I keep these souvenirs?

Oh here come the tears
After all of these years
Why do I keep these souvenirs?



SEPTEMBER RAIN

It’s so dark in the park
And the days don’t seem so long
Wonder where the sun has gone
Dancing leaves in the trees
Feels like autumn has begun
Long hot summer days are done

But it’s only September rain
Oh it’s only September rain

People sigh, passing by
As they look for winter clothes
Surely it’s not time for those
In the sky geese fly high
In formation tail to nose
Going southward, I suppose

But it’s only September rain
Oh it’s only September rain

Can’t we wait another day
And send the morning mists away
We never seem to have much time
Before it becomes winter time
And we hibernate again

Oh it’s only September rain
Oh it’s only September rain

Can’t we wait another day
And send the morning mists away
We never seem to have much time
Before it becomes winter time
And we hibernate again

Another day, the branches sway
And the sun is peeking through
As it dries the morning dew
Let winter wait, it’s not too late
We have so much more to do
Before the summer’s through
It’s only September rain
Oh it’s only September rain
Oh it’s only September rain


 

YOU CAN DO NO MORE
I see you wondering
What else can you do
To make me see how deeply
I’m in love with you
It makes no difference how hard you try
Of one thing I am sure
My love is already yours
You can do no more

There’s nowhere you can take me
To turn my head around
Nothing you can play to me
No song nor any sound
For I have seen all I need to see
For me to be sure
My love is already yours
You can do no more

You find it hard to believe
I can’t help wondering why
Lay back and start to believe
You don’t need to try

Love’s richest passion
You hunger for so much
It’s all yours for the asking
Just reach out and touch
Open your eyes, trust in yourself
Then you will be sure
My love is already yours
You can do no more
My love is forever yours
You can do no more


 

ROCK ME GENTLY
Rock me gently
Hold me till the morning
Leave this bad old world behind you
Night is falling
A new love is dawning
Let its gentle touch unwind you

Take it slowly
No-one’s watching over
Just a silver moon to light you
Need no reasons
We need no reminders
Just my kisses to ignite you

Oh I know you’re feeling low
But don’t you know you can hold on to me
And you’ll still be free to go, in the morning

Rock me gently
While the darkness hides us
Let me smooth those troubles from you
Take it slowly
There’s so much love inside us
I want to lay that love upon you

Let’s not talk of when you go
Cause don’t you know, it’ll bring a tear to me
Let your love run loose and flow, right now

Rock me gently
Rock me gently
Rock me gently till the morning
Give me your love
Your love
Your love
