Lyrics

My Brave Face
03:18
My brave, my brave, my brave face

I've been living in style
Unaccustomed as I am
To the luxury life
I've been hitting the town
And it didn't hit back

I've been doing the rounds
Unaccustomed as I am
To the time on my hands
Now I don't have to tell anybody
When I'm going to get back

Ever since you went away
I've had this sentimental inclination
Not to change a single thing
As I pull the sheet back on the bed
I want to go bury my head
In your pillow

Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
And take me to that place
Where I can't find my brave face
Where I can't find my brave face
My brave, my brave, my brave face
My brave face

I've been living a lie
Unaccustomed as I am
To the work of a housewife
I've been breaking up
Dirty dishes and throwing them away

Ever since you left I have been trying to
Compose a "Baby, will you please come home" note
Meant for you
As I clear away another
Untouched TV dinner from the table
I laid for two

Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
And take me to that place
Where I can't find my brave face
Where I can't find my brave face
My brave, my brave, my brave face
Rough Ride
04:43
I needed loving
I needed a friend
I needed something that would be there in the end

On a rough ride to heaven
Want to get inside
What will I do
On a rough ride to heaven
I want to get inside
To be with you

I knew you'd help me
I knew you could
You knew I didn't want to be misunderstood

On a rough ride to heaven
Want to be inside
What did I do
On a rough ride to heaven
I want to be inside
To be with you

I'm not asking for an easy passage
So I hope you'll understand
I'm not after any special treatment
But I wouldn't mind a hand

On a rough ride
On a rough ride

On a rough ride to heaven
If I want to get inside
What will I do

On a rough ride to heaven
I want to get inside
What will I do
On a rough ride to heaven
I want to get inside
To be with you
You Want Her Too
03:12
She makes me go so wrong
Yeah, you kept me awake, you know you did
I've loved her oh so long
So why don't you come right out and say it, stupid

She makes me do things I don't want to do
I don't know why I should be telling you
I know that you want her too

My intentions are quite sincere
That's not what you said the other night
And all you can do is sneer
Go ahead and kid yourself, you're right

She makes me do things I don't want to do
I don't know why I should be telling you
I know that you want her too
I've got a better chance than you do
I know that you want her too

You're such a hopeless romantic
She told me you're so predictable and nice
She only did you a favor once or twice
Once or twice

She makes me go so wrong
So why don't you lie back and enjoy it
My conscience is clear and strong
Yes, she says I'm just the boy for it

She makes me do things I don't want to do
I don't know why I should be telling you
I know that you want her too
I know that you want her too
I know that you want her too
Distractions
04:39
What is this thing in life
That persuades me to spend
Time away from you
If you can answer this
You can have the moon

This is the place to be
Anyway you can see
There's a lovely view
Why are there always
So many other things to do

Distractions
Like butterflies are buzzing 'round my head
When I'm alone I think of you
And the life we'd lead if we could only be free
From these distractions

The postman's at the door
While the telephone rings
On the kitchen wall
Pretend we're not at home
And they'll disappear

I wanna be with you
Tell me what I can do
Nothing is too small
Away from all this jazz
We could do anything at all

Distractions
Like butterflies are buzzing 'round my head
When I'm alone I think of you
And the things we'd do if we could only be through
With these distractions

I'll find a peaceful place
Far away from the noise
On a busy day
Where we can spend our nights
Counting shooting stars

Distractions
Like butterflies are buzzing 'round my head
When I'm alone I think of you
And the things we'd do if we could only be through
With these distractions

Like butterflies they're buzzing 'round my head
When I'm alone I think of you
And the life we'd lead if we could only be free
From these distractions
We Got Married
04:57
Going fast, coming soon
We made love in the afternoon
Found a flat after that
We got married

Working hard for the dream
Scoring goals for the other team
Times were bad, we were glad
We got married

Like the way you open up your hearts to each other
When you find a meeting of the minds
Just as well, love was all we ever wanted
It was all we ever had

Further on in the game
Waiting up till the children came
Place your bets, no regrets
We got married
We got married
We got married

Nowadays every night
Flashes by at the speed of light
Living life, loving wife
We got married

I love the things that happen when we start to discover
Who we are and what we're living for
Just because love was all we ever wanted
It was all we ever had

It's not just a loving machine
It doesn't work out
If you don't work at it
Put It There
02:08
Give me your hand
I'd like to shake it
I want to show you I'm your friend
You'll understand
If I can make it clear
It's all that matters in the end

Put it there if it weights a ton
That's what a father says to his young son
I don't care if it weights a ton
As long as you and I are here, put it there
Long as you and I are here, put it there

If there's a fight
I'd like to fix it
I hate to see things go so wrong
The darkest night
And all its mixed emotions
Are getting lighter, sing along

Put it there if it weights a ton
That's what a father says to his young son
I don't care if it weights a ton
As long as you and I are here, put it there
Long as you and I are here, put it there
Figure of Eight
03:25
You've got me dancing in a figure of eight
Don't know if I'm coming or going, I'm early or late
Round and round the ring I go
I want to know, I want to know

Why can't we travel a continuous line
Make love reliable convenant all the time
Up and down the hills I go
I got to know, I got to know

Is it better to love one another
Than to go for a walk in the dark
Is it better to love than to give in to hate
We'd better take good care of each other
Avoid slipping back off the straight and narrow
It's better by far than getting stuck in a figure of eight

Well, figure it out for yourself, little girl
It don't go nowhere at all
It's nothing more than a tape loop
In a big dance hall

You've got me running in a figure of eight
Don't know if I'm coming or going, I'm early or late
Round and round the ring I go
I want to know, I want to know

Is it better to love one another
Than to go for a walk in the dark
Is it better to love than to give in to hate
We'd better take good care of each other
Avoid slipping back off the straight and narrow
It's better by far than getting stuck in a figure of eight
This One
04:10
Did I ever take you in my arms
Look you in the eye, tell you that I do
Did I ever open up my heart
Let you look inside

If I never did it, I was only waiting
For a better moment that didn't come
There never could be a better moment
Than this one, this one

This one is gliding above the ocean
A God is riding upon his back
How calm the water and bright the rainbow
Fade this one to black

Did I ever touch you on the cheek
Say that you were mine, thank you for the smile
Did I ever knock upon your door
Try to get inside

If I never did it, I was only waiting
For a better moment that didn't come
There never could be a better moment
Than this one, this one

This one is gliding above the ocean
A God is riding upon his back
How calm the water and bright the rainbow
Fade this one to black

What opportunities did we allow to flow by
Feeling like the timing wasn't quite right
What kind of magic might have worked if we had stayed calm
Couldn't I have given you a better life

Did you ever take me in your arm
Look me in the eye, tell me that you do
Did I ever open up my heart
Let you look inside

If I never did it, I was only waiting
For a better moment that didn't come
There never could be a better moment
Than this one, this one

This one is gliding above the ocean
A God is riding upon his back
How calm the water and bright the rainbow
Fade this one to black

This one is gliding
A God is riding
How calm the water
And bright the rainbow
Don't Be Careless Love
03:18
Burn the midnight lamp
Down until the dawn
I'll keep watch until I'm sure you're coming home

Shadows play and flicker on the bedroom wall
They turn into a bad dream overnight
Something could be terribly wrong

Don't be careless love
Don't be careless love
Don't be, don't be careless

In my dream you're running nowhere
Every step you've taken turns to glue
Walking down a spiral staircase
Falling through, falling through

Don't be careless love
Be careless love

The lamp burns down and out
I'm getting pretty tired of this
I feel so bad something might be going amiss

I won't be there, so look out for yourself
You're getting in deep whatever you do
Don't let me go back to sleep

Don't be careless love
Don't be careless love
Don't be, don't be careless

Saw your face in the morning paper
Saw your body rolled up in a rug
Chopped up into two little pieces
By some thug

Don't be careless love
Be careless love

But in the morning light
When I wake up again
You're by my side and that's the way it's always been

But in the dark your mind plays funny tricks on you
Your mind plays funny tricks on you
Your mind plays funny tricks on you

Don't be careless love
That Day Is Done
04:20
I feel such sorrow, I feel such shame
I know I won't arrive on time
Before whatever out there is gone
What can I do, that day is done

It's just a promise that I made
I said I'd walk in her parade
Hot scalding tears I thought would flow
Still, in my heart they'll never show

That day is done
That day is done
You know where I've gone
I won't be coming back
That day is done

Well, I recall the time and place
When they announced her precious face
I thought at once my heart would burst
Still, every time is like the first

There was applause when she stepped up
I wished that I could interrupt
I made no sign, I made no sound
I know I must stay underground

That day is done
That day is done
You know where I've gone
I won't be coming back
That day is done

That's why she walks or so they say
She always knew just what I needed
Now, if she would just look my way
One time before they proceed

She sprinkles flowers in the dirt
That's when a thrill becomes a hurt
I know I'll never see her face
She walks away from my resting place

That day is done
That day is done
You know where I've gone
I won't be coming back
That day is done
How Many People
04:14
How many people stand in a line
How many people never get a chance to shine
If you can tell me, I'll gladly listen
How many people have died

One too many right now for me
I want to be happy
I want to be free
One too many right now for me
I want to see ordinary people living peacefully

How many people go for a ride
How many people never make it through to the other side
If you can tell me, I'll gladly listen
How many people have cried

One too many right now for me
I want to be happy
I want to be free
One too many right now for me
I want to see ordinary people living peacefully

How many people will it take
How many people for goodness sake
How many people
How many people, one too many
How many people, one too many
Motor of Love
06:19
I can't get over your love
No matter how hard life seems
There's a light in my dreams
Thanks to you

My friends keep asking me why
There's such a smile on my face
There's a home at my place
Thanks to you

I don't want anything from you
Turn on your motor of love

Motor of love, motor of love
Heavenly father look down from above
I can't get over your powerful motor of love

I can't get over your love
No matter how lost I feel
I know my love is real
Thanks to you

You simply reached out your hand
And touched me deep in my soul
I came in out of the cold
Thanks to you

I won't steal anything from you
You give me more than enough

Motor of love, motor of love
Heavenly father look down from above
I can't get over your powerful motor of love

There was a time when I was down and counted out
Well, I remember I felt so bad
I nearly threw away
Nearly threw away the keys

Motor of love, motor of love
Heavenly father look down from above
Motor of love, motor of love
Heavenly father look down from above
I can't get over your powerful motor of love
