dreams


oh my life is changing everyday
in every possible way
and oh my dreams
it's never quite as it seems
never quite as it seems

i know i felt like this before
but now i'm feeling it even more
because it came from you
then i open up and see
the person falling here is me
a different way to be

i want more, impossible to ignore
impossible to ignore
and they'll come true
impossible not to do
impossible not to do

and now i tell you openly
you have my heart so don't hurt me
you’re what i couldn't find
a totally amazing mind
so understanding and so kind
you're everything to me

oh my life is changing everyday
in every possible way
and oh my dreams
it's never quite as it seems
'cause you're a dream to me
dream to me

promises

you'd better believe i'm coming
you'd better believe what i say
you'd better hold on to your promises
because you bet you'll get what you deserve.

she's going to leave him over
she's going take her love away
so much for your eternal vows, well
it does not matter anyway.

why can't you stay
here a while
stay here awhile
stay with me

oh oh oh oh oh
all the promises we made
all the meaningless and empty words i prayed
prayed praaaayed
oh oh oh oh oh
all the promises we broke
all the meaningless and empty words i spoke
spoke spooooke

what of all the things that you taught me
what of all the things that you'd say
what of all your prophetic preaching
you're just throwing it all away

maybe we should burn the house down
have ourselves another fight
leave the cobwebs in the closet
'cause tearing them out is just not right

why can't you stay
here awhile
stay here awhile
stay with me

oh oh oh oh oh
all the promises we made
all the meaningless and empty words i prayed
prayed praaaayed

oh oh oh oh oh
all the promises we broke
promises we broke
all the meaningless and empty words i spoke
spoke spooooke

oh oh oh oh oh
all the promises we made
promises we made
all the meaningless and empty words i prayed
prayed praaaayed

oh oh oh oh oh
all the promises we broke
promises we broke
all the meaningless and empty words i spoke
spoke spooooke

oh eh

do-do-do

free to decide

it's not worth anything more than this at all
i live as i choose or i will not live at all

so return to where you've come from
return to where you dwell
because harassment's not my forte
but you do it very well

i'm free to decide, i'm free to decide
and i'm not so suicidal after all
i'm free to decide, i'm free to decide
and i'm not so suicidal after all (at all, at all)

you must have nothing more with your mind to do
there's a war in russia and sarejevo, too

so to hell with what you're thinking
and to hell with your narrow mind
you're so distracted from the real thing
you should leave your life behind (behind)

i'm free to decide, i'm free to decide
and i'm not so suicidal after all
i'm free to decide, i'm free to decide
and i'm not so suicidal after all (at all, at all)

i'm free to decide, i'm free to decide
and i'm not so suicidal after all (at all, at all)

at all, at all, at all

or hurled the little streets upon the great

but she had mac bride anyway
and you sit here with me

and you are writing down everything
but i know by now
why did you sit here
in the grave...

disappointment

disappointment you shouldn't have done
you couldn't have done
you wouldn't have done
the things you did then
and we could've been happy
what a piteous thing, a hideous thing
was tainted by the rest

but it won't get any harder
and i hope you'll find your way again
and it won't get any higher
but it all boils down to what you did there

in the night we fight, i fled you're right
it was exactly there
i decided

but it won't be any harder
and i hope you'll find your way again
and it won't get any higher
but it all boils down to what you did there

the icicle melts

when, when will the icicle melt, the icicle, icicle
and when, when will the picture show end, the picture show, picture show
i should not have read the paper today
cause a child, child, child, child he was taken away

there's a place for the baby that died
and there's a time for the mother who cried
and she will hold him in her arms sometime
cause nine months is too long, too long, too long

how, how could you hurt a child, how could you hurt the child?
and now does this make you satisfied, satisfied, satisfied?
i don't know what's happening to people today
when a child, child, child, child he was taken away

there's a place for the baby that died
and there's a time for the mother who cried
and she will hold him in her arms sometime
cause nine months is too long, too long, too long

there's a place for the baby that died
and there's a time for the mother who cried
and you will hold him in your arms sometime
cause nine months is too long, too long, too long. too long...

zombie

another head hangs lowly
child is slowly taken
and the violence caused such silence
who are we mistaken?
but you see, it’s not me
it’s not my family
in your head, in your head
they’re fightin’!
with their tanks, and their bombs
and their bombs, and their guns
in your head, in your head
they’re cryin’!

in your head! in your head!
zombie! zombie! zombie-ie-ie!
what’s in your head, in your head?
zombie! zombie! zombie-ie-ie-ie-oh!

another mother’s breaking
heart is taken over
when the violence causes silence
we must be mistaken
it’s the same old theme
since 1916!
in your head, in your head
they’re still fightin’!
with their tanks, and their bombs
and their bombs, and their guns
in your head, in your head!
they’re dyin’!

in your head! in your head!
zombie! zombie! zombie-ie-ie!
what’s in your head, in your head?
zombie! zombie! zombie-ie-ie-ie-oh!
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, hey-oh, yeah

i can't be with you

lying in my bed again
and i cry cos you're not here
crying in my head again
and i know that it's not clear
put your hands, put your hands
inside my face and see that it's just you
but it's bad and it's mad
and it's making me sad
because i can't be with you

baby i can't be with you

thinking back on how things were
and how we loved so well
i wanted to be the mother
of your child
and now it's just farewell

put your hands in my hands
and come with me
we'll find another end
and my head, and my head
on anyone's shoulder
cause i can't be with you

baby i can't be with you

cause you're not here, you're not here
baby i can't be with you
cause you're not here, you're not here
and baby i'm still in love with you

ode to my family

understand the things i say
don't turn away from me
cause i spent half my life out there
you wouldn't disagree
d'you see me, d'you see
do you like me, do you like me standing there
d'you notice, d'you notice
do you see me, do you see me
does anyone care?

unhappiness was when i was young
and we didn't give a damn
'cause we were raised
to see life as fun and take it if we can
my mother, my mother she hold me
did she hold me, when i was out there
my father, my father, he liked me
oh he liked me, does anyone care?

understand what i've become
it wasn't my design
and people everywhere think
something better than i am
but i miss you, i miss
'cause i liked it, 'cause i liked it
when i was out there
d'you know this, d'you know
you did not find me, you did not find
does anyone care?

unhappiness was when i was young
and we didn't give a damn
'cause we were raised
to see life as fun and take it if we can
my mother, my mother she hold me
did she hold me, when i was out there
my father, my father, he liked me
oh he liked me, does anyone care?

does anyone care?
