Track Name: Take That Chance
I'm so alone
While we're apart
The telephone
Just breaks my heart
But all I do
Is sit around and think of you
When I'm so hurt inside
It's hell I'm going through

I can feel love's waves breaking over me
I'm so in love with you and so hopelessly

But I'll take a chance
Take a chance on losing you
It's the last thing that I want
And the last thing I should do
But I've got to take that chance

So high and dry
I'm touching sky
I'll test your love
And wave goodbye
The only way
To be sure your love is here to stay
To test those arms that bind
Is to push them right out the way

I can feel love's waves breaking over nme
I'm so in love with you it's a tragedy

But I'll take a chance
Take a chance on losing you
It's the last thing that I want
And the last thing I should do
But I've got to take that chance

INSTRUMENTAL

And I can feel love's waves breaking over me
I'm so in love with you and so hopelessly

But I'll take a chance
Take a chance on losing you
It's the last thing that I want
And the last thing I should do
But I'll take a chance
Take a chance on losing you
It's the last thing that I want
And the last thing I should do
But I've got to take that chance
Track Name: I Get The Strangest Feeling
In my head and in my heart
Something hard to explain
Fire burns a route to my soul
And she's the fuel that feeds the flame
I can't control myself
I must be going out of my mind
Hands shake while I quake in my boots
With her around it's fever time

I get the strangest feeling
As she walks by
I get the strangest feeling
That look in her eyes
That cuts me inside

I could be the twilight dancer
Take a chance with the light
Steal the flame from the tongue spitting fire
Fly my heart like a kite
I can trace the moonlight glow
That gently caresses her skin
I will always be shadowed under
The girl who's light is everything

I get the strangest feeling
As she walks by
I get the strangest feeling
That look in her eyes
That cuts me inside

In my soul the aligning of hearts
The sky drips with my pain
I will always the chariot be
To run like tigers in rain

I get the strangest feeling
As she walks by
I get the strangest feeling
That look in her eyes
That cuts me inside
Track Name: Let's Go Crazy Now
Let’s Go Crazy Now

I never met a girl like you
No-one as crazy as to do what you do
The things you like to put me through
The maddest things and yet I love you
I want you oh

Where will it all end?
Where will it all end?

I never had a friend like you
To run me round in ways the way that you do
Who’d make me do the things you do
And yet I love it when you do it
Won’t you do it to me oh

Where will it all end?
Where will it all end?

So let’s go crazy now
Let’s go crazy now

I never met a girl like you
No-one as crazy as to do what you do
The things you like to put me through
The maddest things and yet I love you
I want you oh

Where will it all end?
Where will it all end?

Where will it all end?

So let’s go crazy now
Let’s go crazy now
Let’s go crazy now
Track Name: You'll Never Know
You'll Never Know

I felt my confidence
Sinking with every word you said
And the promise of love you made
Came to nothing
Came to nothing

From the window I heard you talk
Holding court gathered in the hall
Bitter words eating out my soul
And the laughter
The worst of all

You'll never know
The tears I cried in vain
But how it shows
When it comes again
Here it comes again

You'll never know
The burning deep inside
My dying throes
Words I heard that night
Hear them every night

All my dreams shattered in one night
Just a shadow of what was my self
Down the spiral staircase fall
Into despair
Into hell
In my throat choking back the tears
A taste so bitter to be not defined
I recall every barb-edged word
Echo-like repeating in my mind

And now I mourn the loss
Of a love that was never mine
All the faith and trust I gave
The wounded victims left far behind
All my dreams shattered in one night
Just a shadow of what was myself
Down the spiral staircase fall
Into despair
Into hell
Track Name: Low
Low

And when you're all alone
Feeling lonely
Feeling low
When morale is on the ground
Watch the vultures gather round

When skies are black
Don't take so on yourself
When things look grey
Don't worry times can change
And may never be the same

And when you're all alone
Feeling lonely
Feeling low
When morale is on the ground
Watch the vultures gather round

And when you're blue
Find peace in solitude
Find rescue in your heart
Look yourself in the eye
And steer the fear away

When friends are green
Don't hanker for what's been
To when days were gold
Things are never what they seem
Life is really just a dream

And when you're all alone
Feeling lonely
Feeling low
When morale is on the ground
Watch the vultures gather round

And when you're blue
Find peace in solitude
Find rescue in your heart
Look yourself in the eye
And steer the fear away

Find peace in solitude
Find rescue in your heart
Look yourself in the eye
And steer the fear away
Tomorrow is another day.
Track Name: Little India
Little India

You're an adult now and a child no more
That's a fact your mother and I can't ignore
So soon we'll send a letter back home
To a man who will tame and make you a wife of his own

Anything you wanted we gave it to you
You had a good upbringing don't dispute what is true
Our traditions they say that a parent decides
What is best for their girl and who makes her their bride

Who will love you when you get old
Who will love you when you get old

Dress up fine let your father see
What a beautiful creature you have grown up to be
And how happy are we on your wedding day
That we gain us a son just by giving you away

You'd just left school and full of ideas
Bringing confirmation to our darkest fears
How could we have a daughter with a mind of her own
When all women should be a man's possession at home

Who will love you when you get old
Who will love you when you get old

Can't you see everything we want is what's best for you
Buckle down turn your head around do what we tell you to do

Who will love you when you get old
Who will love you when you get old
Track Name: Change
Change

Sometimes
I don't understand
You chasing other men
When I give you all I can
Late nights
Turn to early days
You've nothing more to say
Is this how you had it planned

But I can't see
No reasons for your lies
You never even tried
Is that how to live your life?
But you
Are a mystery to me
Ain't no way a girl should be
Hanging round so late at night

Things have got to change
Things have got to change
Babe you've got to change
Your mind.
Though I do believe
You believe
Everything's fine.

You say
That you don't really care
If I'm here or if I'm there
As long as you are free
But if
You want our love to grow
Though I'm ashamed to say it's so
You've got to listen to me

So you must see
That things have got to change
All around be re-arranged
Does that seem so strange to you
Because
Our life is very short
But it's made shorter still
By the fighting that we do

Things have got to change
Things have got to change
Babe you've got to change
Your mind.
Though I do believe
You believe
Everything's fine.
Things have got to change.
Track Name: The Killing Trade
The Killing Trade

Here
In this cold and faceless room
Just a number on a cage
A thing without a name

Here,
In cages neat and clean
Waiting fearfully to go
Where so many more have been
Fearing what I've never seen

I
Have seen the hands that deal in pain
And the blade when freshly stained
Empty cages that fill again

But I have seen their shapes
Moving silently past the iron grill
Maybe they'll overlook me
If I just stay quiet and still
And breath a little less I'm sure they will

Now
As each moment flickers past
While in their mercy left
I pray to their God not mine
Till the curious blade divides

My heart keeps missing
At each fearfull sound
Unscrewed and burning
Turning inside out
Waiting
In senseless fear
As the moment of my death draws near
Track Name: Talking To Myself
Talking To Myself

Here in this room
I hear the sound of keys in my door
I can't take it anymore
They walk into my room

I'm strapped to my bed
I look up I feel so dizzy in my head
I feel like screaming but my vocal chords are dead
Will this torment be over soon

They pump me full of strange drugs
And they beat me until I remember names
They break my fingers till I pass out with the pain.
Here in this room

I awake to the sound
Of the rats that scurry on the ground
I shake my head at the pain that pounds and pounds
When I hear whispers in the gloom

I must be talking to myself
There can be nobody else but me in this room
I must be talking to myself.

In the darkness of the room
The image crisp and clear
My mothers with me, her voice I hear
In my deliria

So child like I cry
In me a secret never to be out
I tell my mother, who nods back while I shout
In my hysteria

I must be talking to myself
There can be nobody else but me in this room
I must be talking to myself.

I must be talking to myself
There can be nobody else but me in this room
I must be talking to myself.
I must be talking to myself
I must be talking to myself
Track Name: Gonna Make You Love Me
Gonna Make You Love Me

I'm gonna make you love me
No matter what people say
"She's too good for you boy -
you'd better stay away"
But I've got plans to make you mine
I've got plans for you
I'm gonna break those barriers down
I'm coming up for you

I'm gonna make you love me
No matter what you do
I'm gonna make you love me
I'm coming after you
I'm gonna get to you.

I'm just wild about the clothes you wear
They look so mean and free
I love the way you dress your hair
You're all a girl should be
I'm gonna take you heart in hand
I'm gonna make you mine
Strike a pose like a sun-eyed child
With a look that transcends time.

I'm gonna make you love me
No matter what you do
I'm gonna make you love me
I'm coming after you
I'm gonna get to you.

Oh, what can a poor boy do
But to want for such as you?
And the dream may not come true
But I'll keep hanging on
Hanging on for you.

I'm gonna make you love me
No matter what you do
I'm gonna make you love me
I'm coming after you
I'm gonna make you love me
No matter what you do
I'm gonna make you love me
I'm coming after you
I'm gonna get to you.
