Lyrics

Hey Mister Heartache
04:37
Darlin' don't you know I've had enough
Wasting all my time
Darlin' put it on the line
Cos I heard you lying time and time again
Ooh and I don't want to any more
This is where our loving has to end
Darlin' now you know the score
So goodbye Baby

Hey Mr Heartache how much can you fake
How many hearts break before you get enough
Hey Mr Heartache you don't give you just take
I hope for your sake you don't turn your back on love

Darlin' don't know what you're looking for
But I'm not waiting around to see
Darlin' can't take any more
I still love you but I'm gonna set you free
Ooh that's the way it's got to be
Cos I know I can't change you anyway
Darlin' there's nothing left to say
But goodbye baby

Hey Mr Heartache how much can you fake
How many hearts break before you get enough
Hey Mr Heartache you don't give you just take
I hope for your sake you don't turn your back on love

Listen to me, so listen to me
Ooh baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Cos I was stupid to believe
You could give me what I need
You use anyone you can
Yet you call yourself a man
We'll seen through your disguise
And it's all that I despise
Now you've just run out of time
Go before I change my mind

Hey Mr Heartache, cos I love you baby
Hey Mr Heartache I still love you baby

I still love you but I'm gonna set you free
Ooh that's the way it's got to be
Cos I know I can't change you anyway
Darlin' there's nothing left to say
But goodbye baby

Hey Mr Heartache how much can you fake
How many hearts break before you get enough
Hey Mr Heartache you don't give you just take
I hope for your sake you don't turn your back on love
You Came
04:34
Someone I know is staring at me
And when I look into her eyes
I see a girl that I used to be
I hardly recognise
Cos in the space of a year
I've watched the old me disappear
All of the things I once held precious
Just don't mean anything anymore
Cos suddenly

You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place

I've never felt good with permanent things
Now I don't want anything to change
You can't imagine the joy you bring
My life won't be the same
And I'll be there when you call
I'll pick you up if you should fall
Cos I have never felt such inspiration
Nobody else ever gave me more because

You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place

I watch you sleep in the still of the night
You look so pretty when you dream
So many people just go through life
Holding back, they don't say what they mean
But it's easy for me
Since you came
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place
You came, and changed the way I feel
No one could love you more
Because you came and turned my life around
No one could take your place
Four Letter Word
04:04
I tell ya
It's hell yeah
When love says goodbye it's a four letter word
Because your heart knows
When love goes
The feeling is bad - it's the pits of the world
It's sad but true
When nothing you can do, can bring it back

Standing in the rain
She starts to cry
Is it all a game
She wonders why
Why it had to start
Why should it end, and take her apart

Because she shows it
She knows it
But what can she do, it's a four letter word
Because it shakes you
It breaks you
And when it's the end, it's the worst thing you heard
It's over now
And nothing you can do can bring it back

Calling out his name
She starts to cry
Guys are all the same
She wants to die
Hide away the tears
No-one will see, and no-one must hear
But oh

How can the love that she has be profain
And how can something that's so beautiful
Just jeckyl and hyde around
It's so sad...

I tell ya
It's hell yeah
When love says goodbye
It's a four letter word
Because your heart knows
When love goes
The feeling is bad
It's the worst in the world
It's sad but true
When nothing you can do, can get it back

Standing in the rain
She starts to cry
Shouting out is name
Four letter words
Love in the Natural Way
04:17
Well it sounded like a whisper
But soon became a cry
And the moment that I touch you
I know the reason why - we got love
No union is stronger than a woman with a man
I'm gonna give love in the natural way
With everything I can
Never mind if things go wrong
You and I will still be strong
And how I love you now

Oh baby, we're here tonight
We can make it last forever
Wen can make it last for life
Oh, baby, no matter what
I'm gonna give love in the natural way
With everything I got

All times it can be gentle
And at times it can be cruel
It can treat you like a stranger
It can treat you like a fool
But tonight I wanna hold you
Cos tonight you're gonna see
I'm gonna give you love in the natural way
And keep you here with me
Lovin' like you've never known
Now at last We're on our own
And I still love you now

Oh, baby, we're here tonight
We can make it last forever
We can make it last for life
Oh, babe, it's me and you
And it's a natural reaction
When you feel the way we do
What is left that's still unknown
Let's discover on our own

Cos when love's the culmination
Of everything you feel
Well it's the only thing that's precious
It's the only thing that's real
Love's a No
04:18
Alright - now we're alone
I know you're expecting me
To tell you all that I've been through
Oh sorry, it takes so long
And anyway, it's hurting me
So don't ask, it might hurt you too
Maybe I'm the fool
To turn down the love you're offering

Thanks - but love's a no (my baby)
There's too much at stake
It's too soon I know (my baby)
And just too much to take

Sometimes - I get scared
Loving on my own again
Some days I just want to cry
Memories won't set me free
Those memories of how it used to be

Thanks - but love's a no (my baby)
There's too much at stake
It's too soon I know (my baby)
And just too much to take

No - it wasn't always like this
I used to be the one who was smart
I was a hard girl
I couldn't get caught - I was strong
Oh - but then I got hurt
How I got hurt
Oh darlin' - take a little time with me
Darlin' - take a little time
Just a little time

One day - I don't know when
Maybe we can try again
Maybe all I need is time
Hold me then say goodbye
Don't hate me - for all the things I've said

Thanks - but love's a no (my baby)
There's too much at stake
It's too soon I know (my baby)
And just too much to take

Oh darlin' take a little time with me
Oh darlin' take a little time
Just a little time
Never Trust a Stranger
04:06
I knew there was a danger
But couldn't resist
The touch of a stranger
The thrill of his kiss
Cos this time
I thought it was love
I thought it was heaven
Having the time of my life
I know it's not true

Oh never trust a stranger with your heart
Oh no, never trust a stranger with your heart

My world is in pieces
You've stolen my pride
And i'm left defeated
And crushed by your lies

Like a tiger you hunted and tracked me down
Savaged my soul and took over control
And then when you'd used all the love you found
You left without trace
Not a note or a single goodbye
I thought it was love
I thought it was heaven
Having the time of my life
I know it's not true

Oh never trust a stranger with your heart
Oh no, never trust a stranger with your heart
You'll Be the One Who'll Lose
04:32
Guess I took it for granted
That you'd feel the same as me
Had enough of romances ending unromantically
You don't take any chances
But you gamble aimlessly
Always running in circles
Keeping phoney company
You call'em up when you get in town
'cos it's time to play the game
Hangin' out at the place to be
Where the people know your name

And I'm tryin' to say
It doesn't matter at all
It doesn't matter what you do
I'm gonna leave you anyway
But I want you to know
You'll be the one who'll lose

It was foolish to kid myself
That love's a guarantee
It's an illusion that's often sold
But never comes for free
Can you see what you're losing
Oh, can you even really see
Seems you're so busy moving, honey
You never even noticed you lost me
And I'm trying to say
It doesn't matter at all
It doesn't matter how you feel
I'm gonna say it anyway
Cos I want you to know
You'll be the one who'll lose
European Soul
05:22
I want to tell you of a place that I recall
Where you're drawn by the seduction
And the beauty of it all
You can step into another world
Of poetry and dreams
In a land of mystery
Images dance, translucent colours seem to shine
They're a ghostly recollection
Of another space and time
I imagine I can hear their voices calling me
To the land of mystery

Where the Russian heart is strong
Like the beating of a drum
Where the magic lingers on
And the fight for thruth is won
Deep in the European soul

And love's eternal flame was burning deep inside
It was the purest inspiration
That he never tried to hide
When you see the lovers floating
You can almost hear them sigh
As you watch them dancing
Up into the sky

The world's realities are not to be denied
But must we keep destroying all our fantasies
It's hard to look beyond when terror fills our eyes
We mustn't give up trying to let our dreams survive

I touch the paintings with the fingers of my heart
Like a supernatural love affair that's just about to start
But there'll always be the hidden dreams I'll never see
In the land of mystery
Stone
04:43
Most people wake
From a nightmare to find
Everything's great
It was all in their mind
So am I still sleeping
Or is this all real
If I keep on pinching myself
Will the fear disappear, oh no

It's like a stone hanging over our heads
Ready to blow
Cos this is our time
You've got to believe
That it's yours and it's mine
You can't close your eyes to the lies
Perpetrated by dangerous fools
Cos they're handing out rules
Like a prophecy chiselled in stone
Stone
They're carving out our fate
Why can't they leave us alone
Stone, stone
And messing up the world
They've got to leave it alone

They've signed on some paper
To end all the fear
But this propaganda
Is perfectly clear
They're still building and testing
But what can we do
Condemning the seas
And the land and the trees to a tomb
Oh no

It's like a stone hanging over your heads
Where do we go
Cos this is your time
You've got to believe
That it's yours and it's mine
You can't close your eyes to the lies
Perpetrated by dangerous fools
Cos they're handing out rules
Like a prophecy chiselled in stone
Lucky Guy
02:40
Some people don't seem real at all
Unafraid of any mountain
Sure that the gods won't let him fall
Should he fall, he will always get up again

And if he's hurt he never shows it
If he's wrong nobody knows it
Seems like he never has to try
He just must be a lucky guy

And when there's pain he never minds it
When it's lost he always finds it
Nobody really knows just why
He just must be a lucky guy
He just must be a lucky guy
I wish I was that lucky guy
