DESERT SOUL

HEAT-SEEKER IN THE DESERT NIGHT
GOT A MESSAGE THAT WILL BURN YOUR WORLD ALIVE
OVERHEAD AND UNDERGROUND
THEY ROCK THE CRADLE THEN THEY TURN YOU
UPSIDE DOWN

EVERYBODY CAN SEE
ALL THEY WANT YOU TO BE IS SO BLIND
SHAPING BEAUTIFUL WORLDS
FROM OUR DUTIFUL CELLS

DESERT SOUL – YOUR FIRES ARE BURNING
DESERT SOUL – COLD WHEELS ARE TURNING
DO THEY KNOW HOW MUCH THE HURT IS
DESERT SOUL – I HOPE YOU MAKE IT HOME TONIGHT
(HOME TONIGHT)

SCENE STEALER IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT
COCA-COLA BABY, HA-HOLLYWOOD NIGHTS
HERE COMES THE HERO ON HIS SILVER STEED
HE’LL GIVE YOU HONEY, BUT HE’S TAKING ALL YOU
NEED

EVERYBODY CAN SEE
ALL THEY WANT YOU TO BE IS SO BLIND
SHAPING BEAUTIFUL WORLDS
FROM OUR DUTIFUL CELLS

DESERT SOUL – YOUR FIRES ARE BURNING
DESERT SOUL – COLD WHEELS ARE TURNING
DO THEY KNOW HOW MUCH THE HURT IS
DESERT SOUL – I HOPE YOU MAKE IT HOME TONIGHT
(HOME TONIGHT)
DESERT SOUL

SAD SOFT LULLABY

YOU SAY YOU NEED A CHANGE,
TO FIND YOUR FREEDOM…STRANGE…
YOU SAID YOU HAD IT ALL,
UNTIL THE DISTANCE DAWNED
YOUR SHIP HAS RUN AGROUND
DON’T TELL ME THAT WE KISSED THE SKIES AND HOW
ALL THAT’S BULLSHIT NOW
WE KISSED THE SKIES AND HOW
BUT ALL THIS BULLSHIT LASTS FOREVER

IT’S A SAD SOFT LULLABY,
WITH DESIGNS ON LOVER’S EYES
IT’S A SAD SOFT LULLABY,
WITH DESIGNS ON LOVER’S ICE (LOVER’S ICE)

SO FIND YOUR OPEN ROAD,
GO ON AND CRACK THE CODE
REMEMBER AS YOU DISAPPEAR,
I’LL SERVE MY SENTENCE HERE
MY MIRROR TELLS THE TRUTH,
SAYS THIS ONE HAUNTED YOU
THIS ONE BURNED RIGHT THROUGH,
THIS LOVES HAUNTING YOU
AND THIS ONE BURNED RIGHT THROUGH FOREVER

IT’S A SAD SOFT LULLABY,
WITH DESIGNS ON LOVER’S EYES
IT’S A SAD SOFT LULLABY,
WITH DESIGNS ON LOVER’S ICE
IT’S A SAD SOFT LULLABY,
THAT DEFINES YOUR LOVER’S MIND
IT’S A SAD SOFT LULLABY,
WITH DESIGNS ON LOVER’S EYS (LOVER’S ICE)

A SAD SOFT LULLABY

CAN'T STOP

CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT YOU
CAN'T START LIVING WITHOUT YOUR LOVE,
YOUR LOVE...
CAN'T STOP DRINKING WITHOUT YOU
YOU'RE THE THREAD THAT I'M HANGING FROM
YOU'RE LOVE, YOU'RE LOVE

AND WHEN I TELL YOU THAT I WANT YOU
YOU'RE GONNA SAY YOU WANT ME
YOU'RE GONNA SAY IT ALL

BUT I CAN'T GET THESE BONDS TO BREAK
WE ALL GET SOME, THERE'S NO ESCAPING
NO I CAN'T SEEM TO BREAK THESE CHAINS
MY FLESH IS WEAK, I'LL NEVER CHANGE

CAN'T STOP DYING WITHOUT YOU
I'M HERE CRYING WITHOUT YOUR LOVE, YOUR LOVE
CAN'T SMILE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER
COS YOU JUST TOOK AWAY YOUR LOVE, YOUR LOVE
BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL GIRL

AND WHEN I TELL YOU THAT I WANT YOU
YOU'RE GONNA SAY YOU WANT ME
YOU'RE GONNA SAY IT ALL

BUT I CAN'T GET THESE BONDS TO BREAK
WE ALL GET SOME, THERE'S NO ESCAPING
NO I CAN'T SEEM TO BREAK THESE CHAINS
MY FLESH IS WEAK, I'LL NEVER CHANGE

I CAN'T SEEM TO BREAK THESE CHAINS

CAN’T STOP BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER
CAN’T STOP BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER
CAN’T STOP BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER

IS HEAVEN WORTH WAITING FOR

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE
BUT WE PAY FOR THE FACTS
WHEN THERE'S LOVE ON THE LINE
YOU CAN BET YOURSELF SOON
THERE'LL BE BLOOD ON THE TRACKS

DON'T YOU KNOW THERE'S A PLACE
WHERE WE'RE ALL GONNA DANCE
COME ON DON'T BE AFRAID NOW
LET'S TAKE A CHANCE

RESCUE ME - I'M ON FIRE
LET ME BE THE BRIGHTEST STAR
I'LL WALK FREE AND LEAVE YOU DYING
CAN'T YOU SEE, IT'S MY DESIRE

IS HEAVEN WORTH WAITING FOR
IS HEAVEN WORTH WAITING FOR

IN THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE
THERE'S THE ONES WHO'LL DESPISE
YOU GOT HOPE IN YOUR SIGHTS
AND YOU KNOW BY THE SIGNS
THEY'LL PUT FEAR IN YOU HEARTS

DON'T YOU KNOW THERE'S A TIME
WHEN WE'RE ALL GONNA SING
CAN'T YOU TELL FROM THE PAIN
IT'S THE RIGHT WAY

RESCUE ME - I'M ON FIRE
LET ME BE THE BRIGHTEST STAR
I'LL WALK FREE AND LEAVE YOU DYING
CAN'T YOU SEE, IT'S MY DESIRE

IS HEAVEN WORTH WAITING FOR
IS HEAVEN WORTH WAITING FOR

HEATWAVE

IF IT DON'T BITE COULD YOU EAT IT
IF IT WON'T FIGHT COULD YOU BEAT IT
IF IT TOLD LIES WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT HEY NOW
THERE'S A WORLD THAT'S GONNA EAT YOUR LOVE

CAUSE IT'S A HEAT-WAVE BABY
AND WE GOT TO MOVE ON
I GOT A MILLION DIFFERENT WAYS
JUST TO KEEP YOU COOL
I GOT THE BIRDS AND THE BEES
AND A NICE COLD POOL
SO GIVE ME ALL YOUR HONEY
AND WE’LL SWEAT UNTIL WE FALL YEAH

HEAT-WAVE BABY NOW
HEAT-WAVE BABY NOW
HEAT-WAVE BABY NOW
HEAT-WAVE BABY NOW

IF YOU LOSE SIGHT WOULD YOU SEE IT
IF YOU'RE UPTIGHT JUST TRY NOT TO FEEL IT
IF YOU GOT LOVE DON'T TRY TO CONCEAL IT
LISTEN NOW DON'T KEEP ME WAITING
MEET YOU AT MY DOOR

SO LET'S GET TOGETHER BABY
AND SWEAT UNTIL WE FALL
DON'T LET 'EM TAKE YOUR HEART
DON'T LET 'EM BREAK IT ALL
THEY'LL TRY TO TAKE YOUR HEART
THEY'LL TRY TO BREAK US ALL

MAKE BELIEVE

LORD WHAT HAVE I DONE
LORD WHAT HAVE I DONE
I'D GIVE YOU ALL OF MY POWER
IF YOU'D JUST SET ME FREE
AND I'VE BEEN WORKING REAL HARD
STILL YOU WON'T LAY YOUR HANDS ON ME

WE MAKE BELIEVE IT'S ALL WORTH IT
WE MAKE BELIEVE IT'S ALL PERFECT
SO MAKE BELIEVE,

MAKE...

LORD WHAT HAVE I DONE
LOVE WHAT HAVE I DONE
WELL YOU GAVE IT YOUR BEST
BUT IS THIS ALL THERE IS
YOU PUT OUR LOVE TO THE TEST
BUT YOU WON'T LAY YOUR HANDS ON ME

LOVE SHOW ME A SIGN
I'M LOSING MY WAY
AND MY PEOPLE ARE DYING
SHOULD I PRAY FOR THE RAIN
LORD YOU GOT IT BAD
AND WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
IF YOU DON'T LAY YOUR HANDS ON ME

WE MAKE BELIEVE IT'S ALL WORTH IT
SO MAKE BELIEVE IT'S ALL PERFECT
WE MAKE BELIEVE IT'S ALL WORTH IT
SO MAKE BELIEVE IT'S ALL PERFECT...

UNDER THE STARS

UNDER THE STARS
THAT'S WHERE I'LL BE
CAUGHT IN THOSE EYES
THEY DANCE OVER ME

FOLLOW MY FOOTSTEPS
THEY WON'T LET YOU WIN
I'M ONLY HUMAN
AND END WHERE I BEGIN

YOU SLIPPED THROUGH MY HANDS
UNDER THE STARS
SLIPPED THROUGH MY HANDS
UNDER THE STARS

UNDER THEY STARS
THAT'S WHERE I'LL BLEED
GOT ALL MY SCARS
THEY STAY WITH ME

YOU THINK YOU CUT THE DEEPEST
DOWN TO THE BONE
AND THAT YOU WERE MY WEAKNESS
AND YOU TURNED ME TO STONE

BUT...

YOU SLIPPED THROUGH MY HANDS
UNDER THE STARS
SLIPPED THROUGH MY HANDS
UNDER THE STARS

UNDER THE STARS

UNDER THE STARS

KING OF THE WORLD

GIVE ME JUST ONE MORE PRECIOUS
MINUTE OF YOUR TIME
AND I'LL GIVE YOU ENOUGH
TO SHOW YOU HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE
IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOUR SKIN
WOULD IT MEAN A THING
LET YOUR ILLUSIONS BE
YOU KNOW YOU'LL NEVER BE FREE
STILL I CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM

I'M KING OF THE WORLD
AND NOTHING CAN TOUCH ME NOW
(CAN'T TOUCH ME NOW)
KING OF THE WORLD
AND NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW
(STOP ME NOW CAN'T STOP ME NOW)
STOP ME NOW

I KNOW HOW MANY SECRETS
YOU NEVER REALLY TRIED TO KEEP
AND I KNOW HOW MANY KNIVES ARE OUT
BUT THEY'LL NEVER SPEAK
YOU MADE A BIG MISTAKE
I DON'T WANT TO FEEL A FAKE
YOU'RE UP AGAINST THE WALL
I'LL SIT AND WATCH YOU FALL
BUT STILL I'LL HEAR YOU CALL

I'M KING OF THE WORLD
AND NOTHING CAN TOUCH ME NOW
(CAN'T TOUCH ME NOW)
KING OF THE WORLD
AND NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW
(STOP ME NOW CAN'T STOP ME NOW)
STOP ME NOW

NOTHING CAN TOUCH ME NOW...

POSTCARD

SO HERE WE ARE... ALL ALONE,
JUST A MEMORY OF YOU - A POSTCARD YOU DREW
PRESSING HARD TO MY LIPS
HOPING JUST A TASTE OF YOU
FROM IN BETWEEN THE LINES

AND I HOPED YOU COULD STAY CLOSER
AND I HOPED THAT YOU’D SAY ‘CLOSER’

I FEEL I GOT TO LET YOU KNOW,
I NEVER WANT TO LET YOU GO
PAINTED YOU A PERFECT SKY,
AND NOW YOU WANT TO SAY GOODBYE

THINGS WERE COLD AT THE END,
SOMEHOW SUDDENLY THE ICE
HAD COVERED ALL OUR TRACKS
SO NO TEARS, WE COULD FLY,
THERE WAS NOTHING OUT OF REACH
AND NO-ONE WILL REPLACE YOU

AND I WANT YOU TO STAY CLOSER
WANT THAT YOU’D SAY ‘CLOSER’…

I FEEL I GOT TO LET YOU KNOW,
I NEVER WANT TO LET YOU GO
PAINTED YOU A PERFECT SKY,
AND NOW YOU WANT TO SAY GOODBYE

CLOSER…CLOSER…CLOSER…

SO YOUNG…

SO RUN…

SOUL HEALER

AROUND AND ROUND WE GO
PRETTY, PRETTY LITTLE SOUL
DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE GHOST,
DADDY TAKE YOU HOME

YOU SAY YOU FIND IT STRANGE
HOW WE DESTROY THINGS THAT WE CAN’T CHANGE
NEVER GIVE UP HOPE, LET ME TAKE YOU HOME

YOU SAY YOUR MIND IS LIKE A HOUSE ABOUT TO FALL
I WOULDN’T WORRY IF IT MADE NO SENSE AT ALL
YOU KNOW THE TRUTH IS ONLY WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE
SOMETIMES THE PROOF IS ONLY WHAT IT MEANS TO BE

KISS ME I’M A SLOW FEVER,
TWISTING LIKE A COLD STEEL NOW
LIFTING I’M A HEART BEATER,
GIFTED I’M A SOUL HEALER

PROUD OF ALL WE KNOW, SCARED OF WHAT WE DON’T
BUT NEVER LET IT SHOW, CREATE A LITTLE SPACE,
IN A WORLD WE CAN CALL OUR OWN

WE COULD TALK ALL NIGHT
UNDER THE MOON AND STARS AND MAKE IT RIGHT
FALLING EVERY TIME, GONNA MAKE YOU MINE

I DON’T REALLY WANT TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR LIFE
IN THE END I’LL GIVE YOU NOTHING MORE THAN LIES
I CAN’T HELP THINKING
THAT I’LL SOON FORGET YOUR FACE
AND YOUR HEART BEATING

I’LL SOON FORGET YOUR FACE…
I CAN’T FORGET YOUR FACE
