Lyrics

Joyride
04:24
Also available on:
I hit the road out of nowhere
I had to jump in my car
and be a rider in a love game
following the stars.

Don't need no book of wisdom
I get no money talk at all.

She has a train going downtown
she's got a club on the moon
and she's telling all her secrets
in a wonderful balloon.
Oh she's the heart of the funfair
she's got me whistling her private tune.

And it all begins where it ends
and she's all mine my magic friend.

She says: Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Join the joyride

She's a flower I can paint her
she's a child of the sun
we're part of this together
could never turn around and run

Don't need no fortune teller
to know where my lucky love belongs oh no

Cos it all begins where it ends
and we're all magic friends

She says: Hello you fool I love you
C'mon join the joyride
Join the joynride

Be a joyrider

I take you on a skyride
a feeling like you're spellbound
the sunshine is a lady
who ROX you like a baby
Hotblooded
03:18
You know I'm hotblooded baby...

Get on up and kick it
all the systems are ready to go
well - are you ready or not?
hey, I gotta know!
baby - lay down the blues
and let those guitars bleed
I'm everything you wanted
I'm all you ever need

Cos I'm hotblooded
hotblooded
I need your lovin'
I need your love so bad

Flash all the lights
I'll be a camera tonight
I'll snap the look on your face
when I'm squeezing you tight
yea sisters o' soul
we gotta burn this old house down
keep on beatin' those drums
keep on pumpin' up that sound
yea yea yea yea yea

Hotblooded
I'm hotblooded
I need your lovin'
I need your love so bad
I'm hotblooded
hotblooded
you gotta know it
I need a shot of love so bad
I stay up late where the night's alive

No sleep at all
I work nine to five
it's honey do that and honey do this:
"can I call you home?"
"can I call you home?"
"can I call?" - you can call me miss...
Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)
03:53
In a time where the sun descends alone
I ran a long long way from home
to find a heart that's made of stone
I will try, I just need a little time
to get your face right out of my mind
to see the world through different eyes

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
but when we meet it seems I can't let go
every time you leave the room
I feel I'm fading like a flower

Tell me why
when I scream there's no reply
when I reach out there's nothing to find
when I sleep I break down and cry

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
but when we meet it seems I can't let go
every time you leave the room
I feel I'm fading like a flower

Fading like a rose
fading like a rose
beaten by the storm
talking to myself
getting washed by the rain
it's such a cold cold town

Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
but when we meet it seems I can't let go
every time you leave the room
I feel I'm fading like a flower
Knockin' on Every Door
03:56
Hey now honey you got to face the floor
you headed for the heart
but you couldn't find the door
could you? Could you?
Well I'm standing in the sun
but I'm living in the rain
I got to get a-whirlin'
like a human hurricane over you over you

Now you're looking like a fox on the run
and you're faster than a shot from a gun
I'm pointing at you oh you
talking 'bout you hey you

I thought we had love in store
- you keep on knockin' on every door
babe I've seen it all before
- you keep on knockin' on every door
ain't no lovin' you ignore
- you keep on knockin' on every door
keep keep knock knockin' on every door
- you keep on knockin' on every door

Hey now honey time is all you've spent
you moved into the bed
but you couldn't pay the rent
could you?
In the twinkle of an eye you electrify
I got to get a-shootin' like a rocket in the sky
bye bye goodbye

Now you're burning like you're hot on the scene
don't you love to steal a part of my dream?
I'm looking at you oh you
talking 'bout you yea you

I thought we had love in store
- you keep on knockin' on every door
babe I've seen it all before
- you keep on knockin' on every door
ain't no sugar you ignore
- you keep on knockin' on every door
keep keep knock knockin' on every door
I thought we used to have love in store
- you keep knock knockin' on every door
hey babe don't run around here no more
- you keep on knockin' on every door
ain't no sugar you ignore
- you keep on knockin' on every door
keep keep knock knockin' on every door
- you keep on knockin' on every door
you'd better learn your lesson now...
Spending My Time
04:36
What's the time?
Seems it's already morning
I see the sky it's so beautiful and blue
the TV's on
but the only thing showing is a picture of you

Oh I get up and make myself some coffee
I try to read a bit but the story's too thin
I thank the Lord above
that you're not here to see me
in this shape I'm in

Spending my time
watching the days go by
feeling so small I stare at the wall
hoping that you think of me too
I'm spending my time

I try to call
but I don't know what to tell you
I leave a kiss on your answering machine
Oh help me please
is there someone who can make me
wake up from this dream?

Spending my time
watching the days go by
feeling so small I stare at the wall
hoping that you are missing me too
I'm spending my time

Spending my time
watching the sun go down
I fall asleep to the sound of "Tears of a Clown"
a prayer gone blind
I'm spending my time

My friends keep telling me:
"Hey, life will go on
time will make sure I get over you
this silly game of love -
you play, you win only to lose."

Spending my time
watching the days go by
feeling so small
I stare at the wall
hoping that you think of me too
I'm spending my time

Spending my time
watching the sun go down
I fall asleep to the sound of "Tears of a Clown"
a prayer gone blind
I'm spending my time
I Remember You
03:54
Are you ready? go!

I hear your footsteps like you're walking
I hear your voice like you're talking to me
and I can reach every moment
every caress like i'm living a dream
down to the bone
go little darling

Oh I remember you
feels like it was yesterday
I remember you
you've got me running back again
you shared my secrets and my laughter
I fell in love with the light in your eyes
and I believed that summer would go on and on
for the rest of my life
down to the bone
go little darling

hey I remember you
feels like it was yesterday
I remember you
you've got me running back again
you've got me running
I say: na na na na na na na na na na
Watercolours in the Rain
03:41
Going through the motions
ending up nowhere at all
can't see the sun on my wall
going through emotions
ending up on a frozen morning
with a heart not even broken

Seems I've been running all my life
all my life
seems I've been running all my life
all my life like watercolours in the rain

Find a place to settle down
get a job in a city nearby
and watch the trains roll on by
I'll find the falling star
I'll fall in love with the eyes of a dreamer
and a dream worth believing

Seems I've been running all my life
all my life
seems I've been running all my life
all my life like watercolours in the rain
The Big L.
04:26
She's the top she's got the world on a string.
She makes me boogie makes me do anything yea yea.
Hey now touch the sky
you've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
Well she's a miracle she's all that I need
like the water and the air that I breathe yea yea.
Hey now reach the sky
there's a certain kind of look in your smile.
And I know what love can do
yes I know what hearts can do.

The big love is taking the wheel
the big love goes head over heels
the big lust bring it into a small world
the bigger the better.
Big love waiting to catch the big one
head over heels
the big one bring it into the small world.
I'm building the big big love
I'm building the big big love.

It's kinda strange a bit mysterious
I got to take it oh so so serious.
Hey now touch the sky
you've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
It used to be so hard so lonely at night;
well she's my baby and I'm feeling alright.
Hey now move the sky
there's a certain kind of look in that smile.
When I'm making love with her
when I'm making love to her yea.

The big love is taking the wheel
the big love goes head over heels
the big lust; bring it into a small world
the bigger; the better.
Big love; waiting to catch the big one
head over heels
the big one; bring it into the small world.
I'm building the big big love
I'm building the big big love.

It has to be a big thing.
It's bringing me to my knees.
Has to be a big thing big thing
ya know what I'm saying...

(Do You Get) Excited?
04:17
When the day gets dark
over a thousand streets
and you feel your heart is a living beat

When you're all alone
and you close your eyes
naked to the bone
the dream comes alive

Do you get excited
when I touch you in the night?
my oh my...

Do you get excited
when I meet you every night?
you won't let the night pass you by

When your body's hot
the window's open wide
this moment's all you got
in this race of life
when you feel the fire
is getting close to you
hey baby, you know I'm lonely too

Do you get excited
when I touch you in the night?
my oh my...
do you get excited
when I meet you every night?

You won't let the night pass you by
I wanna know
Church of Your Heart
03:16
Can't we leave the world outside
just for a while?
just for a while?
and spend some time, you and I
under this bright glorious sky

It's been so long since i first saw you
but I still love that smile in your eyes

Yes it's true, right from the start
I believed in the church of your heart
yes it's you that made me be part of
and believe in the church of your heart

Step inside, lay yourself down
just for a while
rest for a while
I can hear a thundering sound
beating inside when you're around

It's been so long since I first met you
since we made love
you know how time flies

Yes it's true, right from the start
I believed in the church of your heart
yes it's you that made me be part of
and believe in the church of your heart
in the church of your heart
Small Talk
03:54
It's not the chapters he reads
when you're feeling low down
it's not the touch of his skin
when you kiss him goodnight
it's not the money he spends
when you want to buy a daydream
and not that miracle smile
that makes the sky bright
it's not the way his hands behave
when you've turned out the light

It's the small small small talk
that makes it all happen
small small small talk
that makes you want to fly
yes it does

It's not the way he believes in
you like a religion
it's not the thrill that you get
when he's holding you tight
it's not the way his eyes persuade
you to stay the night

It's the small small small talk
that makes it all happen (just like that)
small small small talk
that makes you feel like flying
yes it does

information heart and soul
a whisper a word
confessions that have to be heard
small small talk small small talk

come on now come on now come on
- you make it rock so heavenly
come on now come on now come on
- you seem to talk so heavenly
big words...
small talk...
Physical Fascination
03:28
Hi! I got to go
get aboard
attack a love jet heaven and back
my-my-my-my-my-my-my
and I got to find a power station
with a beat
I can't take no conversation
my-my-my-my-my-my-my
looking for the inspiration

All succumb to the physical fascination
all succumb to the physical fascination

Hi! shake shake it up
this love divine
you're out of touch babe
I'm going out of my mind
my-my-my-my-my-my-mind
Talk to me! why don't you talk to me?
C'mon and use your body language
and have yourself a good time
my-my-my-my-my-my-my
and radiate your sweet temptation

All succumb to the physical fascination
all surrender to the physical fascination
yea yea yea yea
Things Will Never Be the Same
04:26
Also available on:
Lay it down
pull my heart to the ground
time's getting cold
now the leaves all turn hard and blue

And I know
when I gaze to the sun
no place to hide
I got nowhere to run
from you away from you

Hold me now
girl I don't know when
when we will ever meet again
that was then baby this is now
I try to get over you

Losing you...
things will never be the same
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
things would never be...

In your hand
babe I don't understand
you've got the eyes of a child
but you hurt like a man
always do always do

Touch me now girl
I don't know when
when we will ever meet again
that was then baby this is now
time won't get over you
Perfect Day
04:05
Breathe some faith into my chest
lay me down I need the rest
ever since the sky turned grey
I've waited for the perfect day

Hey now
- it seems you've always touched me
like the sun

There's no escape for the broken-hearted
there's no return once you've lost your way
I say a prayer now our love's departed
that you'll come back to stay
and bring the perfect day

Blinded by a crazy light
I fell into the darkest night
those magic ties the two of us
I couldn't see it turn to dust

Hey now
- it seems you've always reached me
like the sun

There's no escape for the broken-hearted
there's no return once you've lost your way
I say a prayer now your love's departed
that you'll come back to stay
bring back the perfect day
