Lyrics

Leave the Light On
04:37
Take my hand
Tell me what you are feeling
Understand
This is just the beginning

Although I have to go
It makes me feel like crying
I don't know when I'll see you again

Darling leave a light on for me
I'll be there before you close the door
To give you all the love that you need
Darling leave a light on for me
'cause when the world takes me away
You are still the air that I breathe
I can't explain I just don't know
Just how far I have to go
But darling I'll keep the key
Just leave a light on for me

Yes I know
What I'm asking is crazy
You could go
Just get tired of waiting

But if I lose your love
Torn out by my desire
That would be the one regret of my life

Darling leave a light on for me
I'll be there before you close the door
To give you all the love that you need
Darling leave a light on for me
'cause when the world takes me away
You are still the air that I breathe
I can't explain I just don't know
Just how far I have to go
But darling I'll keep the key
Just leave a light on for me

Just like a spark lights up the dark
Baby that's your heart

Darling leave a light on for me
I'll be there before you close the door
To give you all the love that you need
Darling leave a light on for me
'cause when the world takes me away
You are still the air that I breathe
I can't explain I just don't know
Just how far I have to go
But darling I'll keep the key
Just leave a light on for me
Runaway Horses
04:44
Can't sleep tonight
I feel so shaken
Baby the wind has changed again
You come to me
Straight out of nowhere
Taking me where I've never been

Suddenly all of my fences have broken
I'm cutting the reins of my life

Wo Runaway horses
Take us thru the night
Runaway horses
ooo baby hold on tight
Racing thru the darkness
Trying to find a light
You and I on Runaway horses
Baby hold on tight

Stars guide us now
The whole world is sleeping
10 million dreams will soon be told
Out on this road
I'll share your secrets
I'm not afraid of where we'll go

I want you here with me
Pray for our destiny
Here on this mystery ride

Wo Runaway horses
Take us thru our life
Wo Runaway horses
oo oo baby hold on tight
Racing thru the darkness
Trying to find a light
You and I on Runaway horses
oo baby hold on tight

Open my eyes, there's so much light
I feel alive when I'm with you
With every end we'll begin again
Vision of You
04:42
Time moves a summer wind
I can see your face again
Was it such a tragedy
Being you... Being me?

Smoke clears, the pictures fades
but I stay back in yesterday
All the strangers come and go
All of them will never know...

Nobody's touch feels like your touch
Nobody's gets to me that much
Nobody's kiss moves me inside
And I have nowhere left to hide
Tell me what can I do?
I have a vision of you
Tell me what can I do
With this vision of you

Did I walk? Did you run?
What's the way to love someone?
Oh my Darling did we know
What it meant when we let go

How can a candle ever burn so bright?
Casting a shadow on my life
I am blinded by your light
Even without you
Summer Rain
05:32
Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can hear him saying
Nothing will change
Come dancing with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain on our skin
And his kisses hotter than the
Santa Ana winds
Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain

I remember laughing til we almost cried
(There at station that night)
I remember looking in his eyes

Oh my love, it's you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Doesn't matter what I do now
Doesn't matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

I can hear the whistle
Military train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can here him singing
Ooh "Love Is Strange"
Come dance with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain pouring down
And we poured our hearts out
As the train pulled out
I can see my baby
Waving from the train
It was last time that I saw him
In the summer rain

Every time I see the lightening
Every time I hear the thunder
Every time I close the window
When this happens in the summer
Oh the night is so inviting
I can feel that you are so close
I can feel you when the wind blows
Blows right through my heart

Every night and every day now
Though I know you've gone away
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
La Luna
04:45
I remember when I met you
All the stars were hanging in mid-air
In these moments - nothing mattered
But the way you caught me in your stare
We were walking - we were talking
We were laughing about the state of our lives
How our fates brought us together
As the moon was rising in your eyes

On and on the night was falling
Deep down inside us
On and on a light was shining right through

Ah La Luna La Luna
The night that we fell under the spell of the moon
Ah La Luna La Luna
The light that will being me back to you
The light of La Luna

In the hotels, in the cafes
All the world was made with romance
In the harbor moonlit water
All the ships were swaying in a dance
Then you held me and you kissed me
And I knew I had to be with you
You didn't ask me you just took me
to the tiny bed in your tiny room

On and on the band was playing
A song of surrender
On and on the sun would soon break thru

Now I walk along the streets of Marseilles
the winter sky is cold and gray
and I don't know why I left you that day
And I don't know where you are
(We Want) The Same Thing
03:59
Here is my case
We've got no time to waste
Cuz we want the same thing

We're fighting a war
But we don't know what for
Cuz we want the same thing

I know we're different now
Different as night and day
But still want you near
I just want you to stay
I wanna take this chance
I want to be with you
Cuz what you're looking for
I am looking for too

We dream the same thing
We want the same thing... ooh...
And all that we need is to
See it together
We dream the same dream
We want the same thing... ooh...
For now, for love, forever, amen

I look in your eyes and
I know deep inside that
We want the same thing

Breaking the chains that
Just keep us in shame
Cuz we want the same thing

No matter what we say
No matter what we do
Beyond the battlelines
Baby we know what's true

We dream the same thing
We want the same thing... ooh...
And all that we need is to
See it together
We dream the same dream
We want the same thing... ooh...
For now, for love, forever, amen
Deep Deep Ocean
04:05
I heard you call my name
Why do you sit in silence
When there's a whole world waiting
Between these islands

I lay my love down to make you this bridge
But when the tide runs out
I'm still at the water's edge

There's a deep deep ocean
I want to find out what you hide inside of that
Deep deep ocean
What's it take for you to be satisfied

You walk alone at night
So secretive and quiet
I hear the roar of your heartbeat
So why do you deny it

Hold me and show me my love can't be wrong
And I'll be swept away
By the storm beneath your calm

There's a deep deep ocean
I want to find out what you hide inside of that
Deep deep ocean
What's it take for you to be satisfied
If you keep holdin' back emotion
One of us might drown in this deep deep ocean

What's it gonna take
What's it gonna be
When you gonna break and open up to me
Valentine
05:04
I made a rule about you
I made a plan
For getting my feet back on the ground
Bury my face in clouds
For hours on end
But time only flies when you're around

It was cold and dark, the last time I saw you
Your hair was long and falling in your eyes
You said my hands were warm and that I was special to you

Valentine
You know that I'm
Fighting this love in vain
The sun's been shining for a week
But it just feels like rain

Valentine
I know that you're not mine
You're somebody elses flame
But when those hearts and flowers fade
Oh my darlin' look my way

You say it's complicated
But baby you're wrong
There nothing more obvious to me
(That) we're on a trip together
33. 000 light years long
and I'm, I'm hurting so bad 'cause you don't see

The night you walked me home I gave you a picture
Of Eden's trees falling to the ground
And now I feel, I feel like your perfect stranger without you

Valentine
You know that I'm
Fighting for this love in vain
The sun's been shining for a week
But it just feels like rain

Valentine
I know you're not mine
And I don't know why you stay
But when those hearts and flowers fade
Oh my darlin' look my way
Whatever It Takes
04:50
I've seen the rain fall down
And wash away a town
I've seen strong hearts easily broken
Why do some things survive
While others live and die
How can someone let his love go unspoken

I couldn't stand to see us end up that way
Just another tragedy
And every night I promise another day

Whatever it takes
I will be there
By your side, baby anywhere
When you're lost and alone
I'll bring you home
I will come through for you

Whatever it takes
Whatever you need
Whatever comes down between you and me
When the road gets rough
You've gotta trust
I will come through for you
Whatever it takes

I've opened every door
I always wanted more
I didn't have much to believe in
I searched the world for you
I found what's really true
It's your love that gives me a reason

Baby it's only you who can free my heart
I can't do it on my own
It seems like just yesterday I was in the dark

Whatever it takes
I will be there
By your side, baby anywhere
When you're lost and alone
I'll bring you home
I will come through for you
Whatever it takes

Baby it's only you who can free my heart
I can't do it on my own
It seems like just yesterday I was in the dark


Whatever it takes
I will be there
By your side, baby anywhere
When you're lost and alone
I'll bring you home
I will come through for you
Whatever it takes

Whatever it takes
Whatever you need
Whatever comes down between you and me
When the road gets rough
You've gotta trust
I will come through for you
Whatever it takes

Whatever it takes
La-la-la-la
Shades of Michaelangelo
05:49
A still-life portrait
A view from my window
Touched by an innocence
Now fading away
Into a quiet storm
Of the tears of the angels
Falling around me
As I'm watching the days

I frame colors of passion
Against a fading sky

With a stroke of love
On the canvas of my soul
I'm painting a perfect world
With shades of Michaelangelo
It's a promise made
To every heart that knows
We can live in a perfect world
in shades of Michaelangelo

A seed of hope
Grows in my garden
I feel the earth
Beneath my feet
Running through my mind
Are dreams of a future
Where all of this world
Works in harmony

I frame colors of passion
Against a fading sky

With a stroke of love
On the canvas of my soul
I'm painting a perfect world
With shades of Michaelangelo
It's a promise made
To every heart that knows
We can live in a perfect world
in shades of Michaelangelo

I hear songs of children
Echo in the sky
I hear songs of children
A tomorrow so bright

With a stroke of love
On the canvas of my soul
I'm painting a perfect world
With shades of Michaelangelo
It's a promise made
To every heart that knows
We can live in a perfect world
in shades of Michaelangelo

I hear songs of children
Echo in the sky
