ALL OF THE DREAMERS From your tower of ivory I hear you rattle your jewellery But in a hard bitten irony You’re a pillar of the community So you come down to the barrio To get a feel for the people’s scenario Don't miss your grand opportunity To steal a march on your enemy All of the dreamers Are jumping at shadows in the dark Don't follow the leader Don’t follow the leader into the dark Down in the night it grows so cold Under the shadow that you throw The disciples stand and yawn And wait for the world to be reborn I never promised you the world I just followed it 'round as it unfurled Now I string you up and along with all of the dreamers You speak out loud like a libertine But you’re just another cog in the great machine And in a cold bitter irony You’re a hero of the community You come down to the barrio To get a feel for the people’s scenario Don't miss your last opportunity To steal a march on the enemy
BURN YOUR NAME I was stumblin' around blind Like a wreck I came to you So I staggered through the night Seeking out your rescue blues Gonna burn your name right across the sky So I never forget what the feeling's like I want every single soul to know that I love you for what you are So I'll sound the bells that praise your precious heart So tomorrow will arrive In a burst of broken light Its spell will hold us fast and every beam will bind us tight until we're Shattering like glass the splinters rush into the night I want every single soul to know that I love you for what you are So I'll sound the bells that praise your precious heart Gonna burn your name right across the sky So I never forget what the feeling's like I want every single soul to know that I love you for what you are So I'll sound the bells that praise your precious heart Gonna burn your name Gonna burn your name
A FIGHT ABOUT MONEY This is not a song about victory It's not a song about the relative worth of you or me It's not a song about letting a sleeping dog lie Or letting you climb to high I don't wanna go through the detail You always were the big picture man yourself But this train is headed for a derail No tears dampen this farewell Let me spin a web of words around your room Trap you in the pattern til you're so confused that you're Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? I don't want to become a victim Of your charm offensive, million dollar headline grabbing ways So just wave and smile when you have something to sell No tears witness this farewell Let me spin a web of words around your room Trap you in the pattern til you're so confused that you're Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? Let me spell it out in letters miniature Lead you through the maze that makes it so obscure That you're not really sure what you're gonna get How much to remember How much to forget? Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? You're not really sure what you're gonna get How much to remember How much to forget? Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? That you're not really sure what you're gonna get How much to remember How much to forget? I don't want to go through the detail
SAIL THE WILDEST STRETCH If you had your time over again Would you do it all the same? Down through all the twists and bends Are there moments you'd erase? Would you just leave me standing in the doorway frozen through? Waiting on the coldest comfort from you And if your course could be reset Would you steer your ship my way? Or would you sail the widest stretch Just to feel the force of the waves? Would you just leave me waving On the dock as you pull away? Savouring the bitter taste And if the mirror don't reflect the illusion you made You could stop and take a breath To feel the damage's weight Fade into silence If you had your time over again If you had your time over again Would you sail the widest stretch? If you had your time over again
POISON IN YOUR MIND Who's gonna follow you into the night, Who's gonna dilute the poison in your mind, Who's gonna drown in your blue eyes. Did you ever feel like a call in the night, A good idea laid to waste and left untried, Now the pillar of dust that is holding you up Is crashing down around you now and poisoning your mind. Who's gonna bridge every river you cross? Who's gonna carry the weight of your loss? Who's gonna colour your blue skies?v IBERIAN DREAM I stood up on a wave and I felt just like a king So I rode it all the way to the palace of the queen She was looking so divine in her equipo and her pearls Just a picture of a sueõo of a figment of a girl I crept in to the room to investigate the sound That was keeping me awake and driving me around Sold my soul to buy the teenage dream Now I'm living like a king with my Iberian queen Every time I look I can feel my temperature rise Whenever I dive down deep in her Iberian eyes I sat up on my bed in the middle of the night Just imagining a world were everything's alright I couldn't hear a soul no I never heard a squeal Just the sound of yawning drivers who were sleeping at the wheel But I had it hanging there in my minisculo mind That it never really matters who's in front or behind Sold my soul to buy the teenage dream Now I'm living like a king in my Iberian dream Everytime I look I can feel my temperature rise Whenever I dive down deep in those Iberian eyes I can feel it.................... I can feel it.................... JEWEL Please don't wake me up before tomorrow Leave me safe and warm inside the cradle Steal away with me and start anew Borrow something old bring something blue I'll make it up to you now I'll be the jewel missing from your crown I'll make it up to you now if you let me in
THINK IT OVER Nothing can be said to pacify the war raging in your head Nothing to recommend you're ever gonna see it from the other end You can change it all around Find the secrets so profound Nobody will be saved if you intend to take it with you to your grave Nobody will return from underneath the bridges you already burned You can change it all around Find the secrets so profound You can change it all around This is only the beginning for you Take some time to think it over run it through This could surely end in trouble for you You can change it all around In a sleepy little town You can change it all around
AWAKE Here they come one by one singing "Dominoes, tumble forward" Why would I believe in you When lying is all you ever do? There they go soft and low singing "Ebb and flow underwater" Why whenever I call on you Is crying all you ever do? I'm awake in the flying dream Higher than I've ever been And I'm weightless Spinning in the heart of a hurricane And getting spat out again I never could see through The beauty around you I'm awake in the flying dream Higher than I've ever been And I'm weightless Spinning in the heart of a hurricane And getting spat out again I'm awake with the hearing what you said Hovering around my head And I'm weightless spinning in the heart of a hurricane And getting spat out again I'll stoke you please and relieve your pain Sweep you up and carry you away......
STAND YOURSELF If an apology from you meant anything, I'd accept it now with grace. But you and I both know it's just a ploy for you to save some face. If you had any self respect you'd turn yourself in for your crime. But every time you tell yourself it's alright, Every time you go to sleep at night. Every time you tell yourself it's alright, It just becomes a bigger lie, I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. In between days full of hypertension, Basking in the memories you hold so dear. Remember the vibrant defining moments, The king making manoeuvres and the grand ideas. I'm glad to see the world through a different window, But glory doesn't colour every move I make. No lies, no fiction, no rose-pink lens, Just a truthful look at the love I gave to you. But every time you tell yourself it's alright, Every time you go to sleep at night. Every time you tell yourself it's alright, It just becomes a bigger lie, I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. Hallelujah I found love. Hallelujah I found love. Every praying saints pray for natures sinners, Preserving every pillar that was so hard upon. Fold into the chest of a mother's clutch, Relish in the lure of a distant sun. Now I'm glad to see the world through the winter ballad, The colour wheels stall between the green and blue. No white, no snow melt, no ice bound lakes, Just a bird song strung across the cobalt blue. But every time you tell yourself it's alright, Every time you kiss your kids goodnight. Every time you tell yourself it's alright, It just becomes a bigger lie, I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. GOLDEN RULE The golden rule that applies to you The zero sum puzzle of our love Even just to say his name was bitter on her tongue The boy sailed off to 'riches' and the girl sailed off with 'none' Another in a broken line of love that she had known Another silver tongued but mercury hearted bag of no good bones The beauty queen fraying at the seams Could never be quite enough for me

A FIGHT ABOUT MONEY This is not a song about victory It's not a song about the relative worth of you or me It's not a song about letting a sleeping dog lie Or letting you climb to high I don't wanna go through the detail You always were the big picture man yourself But this train is headed for a derail No tears dampen this farewell Let me spin a web of words around your room Trap you in the pattern til you're so confused that you're Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? I don't want to become a victim Of your charm offensive, million dollar headline grabbing ways So just wave and smile when you have something to sell No tears witness this farewell Let me spin a web of words around your room Trap you in the pattern til you're so confused that you're Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? Let me spell it out in letters miniature Lead you through the maze that makes it so obscure That you're not really sure what you're gonna get How much to remember How much to forget? Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? You're not really sure what you're gonna get How much to remember How much to forget? Not really sure which way is up How much is too little or How much is enough? That you're not really sure what you're gonna get How much to remember How much to forget? I don't want to go through the detail
SAIL THE WILDEST STRETCH If you had your time over again Would you do it all the same? Down through all the twists and bends Are there moments you'd erase? Would you just leave me standing in the doorway frozen through? Waiting on the coldest comfort from you And if your course could be reset Would you steer your ship my way? Or would you sail the widest stretch Just to feel the force of the waves? Would you just leave me waving On the dock as you pull away? Savouring the bitter taste And if the mirror don't reflect the illusion you made You could stop and take a breath To feel the damage's weight Fade into silence If you had your time over again If you had your time over again Would you sail the widest stretch? If you had your time over again
POISON IN YOUR MIND Who's gonna follow you into the night, Who's gonna dilute the poison in your mind, Who's gonna drown in your blue eyes. Did you ever feel like a call in the night, A good idea laid to waste and left untried, Now the pillar of dust that is holding you up Is crashing down around you now and poisoning your mind. Who's gonna bridge every river you cross? Who's gonna carry the weight of your loss? Who's gonna colour your blue skies?v IBERIAN DREAM I stood up on a wave and I felt just like a king So I rode it all the way to the palace of the queen She was looking so divine in her equipo and her pearls Just a picture of a sueõo of a figment of a girl I crept in to the room to investigate the sound That was keeping me awake and driving me around Sold my soul to buy the teenage dream Now I'm living like a king with my Iberian queen Every time I look I can feel my temperature rise Whenever I dive down deep in her Iberian eyes I sat up on my bed in the middle of the night Just imagining a world were everything's alright I couldn't hear a soul no I never heard a squeal Just the sound of yawning drivers who were sleeping at the wheel But I had it hanging there in my minisculo mind That it never really matters who's in front or behind Sold my soul to buy the teenage dream Now I'm living like a king in my Iberian dream Everytime I look I can feel my temperature rise Whenever I dive down deep in those Iberian eyes I can feel it.................... I can feel it.................... JEWEL Please don't wake me up before tomorrow Leave me safe and warm inside the cradle Steal away with me and start anew Borrow something old bring something blue I'll make it up to you now I'll be the jewel missing from your crown I'll make it up to you now if you let me in THINK IT OVER Nothing can be said to pacify the war raging in your head Nothing to recommend you're ever gonna see it from the other end You can change it all around Find the secrets so profound Nobody will be saved if you intend to take it with you to your grave Nobody will return from underneath the bridges you already burned You can change it all around Find the secrets so profound You can change it all around This is only the beginning for you Take some time to think it over run it through This could surely end in trouble for you You can change it all around In a sleepy little town You can change it all around AWAKE Here they come one by one singing "Dominoes, tumble forward" Why would I believe in you When lying is all you ever do? There they go soft and low singing "Ebb and flow underwater" Why whenever I call on you Is crying all you ever do? I'm awake in the flying dream Higher than I've ever been And I'm weightless Spinning in the heart of a hurricane And getting spat out again I never could see through The beauty around you I'm awake in the flying dream Higher than I've ever been And I'm weightless Spinning in the heart of a hurricane And getting spat out again I'm awake with the hearing what you said Hovering around my head And I'm weightless spinning in the heart of a hurricane And getting spat out again I'll stoke you please and relieve your pain Sweep you up and carry you away...... STAND YOURSELF If an apology from you meant anything, I'd accept it now with grace. But you and I both know it's just a ploy for you to save some face. If you had any self respect you'd turn yourself in for your crime. But every time you tell yourself it's alright, Every time you go to sleep at night. Every time you tell yourself it's alright, It just becomes a bigger lie, I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. In between days full of hypertension, Basking in the memories you hold so dear. Remember the vibrant defining moments, The king making manoeuvres and the grand ideas. I'm glad to see the world through a different window, But glory doesn't colour every move I make. No lies, no fiction, no rose-pink lens, Just a truthful look at the love I gave to you. But every time you tell yourself it's alright, Every time you go to sleep at night. Every time you tell yourself it's alright, It just becomes a bigger lie, I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. Hallelujah I found love. Hallelujah I found love. Every praying saints pray for natures sinners, Preserving every pillar that was so hard upon. Fold into the chest of a mother's clutch, Relish in the lure of a distant sun. Now I'm glad to see the world through the winter ballad, The colour wheels stall between the green and blue. No white, no snow melt, no ice bound lakes, Just a bird song strung across the cobalt blue. But every time you tell yourself it's alright, Every time you kiss your kids goodnight. Every time you tell yourself it's alright, It just becomes a bigger lie, I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight. I hope that you can stand yourself tonight.
