I don’t believe in a love that goes forever I don’t believe in a love that comes to stay Every time I think I get a look at love Love goes away I don’t want to lie about love I want to believe in a love that goes forever I want to believe in a love that comes to stay I want to believe, but that don’t make it real now ‘Cause love goes away I don’t want to lie about love I’ve seen the things that love can do I’ve seen it smash a soul in two I don’t want to lie about it I don’t want to lie to you I don’t want to lie about love It goes away, it’s true When your love has gone away It sucks the colour from your day No, there’s nothing left to say When your whole world has gone to grey I used to believe in a love that goes forever I used to believe in a love that comes to stay I met a girl and she told me all about it now That girl’s gone away

You’ve given me a memory I’d like to share with you You’ve given me a fantasy I’d like to make it true It doesn’t take much To fall in love Just a nudge In the right direction It doesn’t take much Just a touch A little warmth And a little affection But we’re just friends And we’re just playing games And if I step up to the plate to play Is our friendship going to end Or is it just going to change? Because everything changes And everything ends But if you’ve got the mind To lay it on the line Come on and we will see Maybe we will be More than just friends More than just friends You’ve given me a mystery I’d like to solve with you You’ve given me this misery I don’t know what to do It doesn’t take much To come undone Just a nudge In the wrong direction It doesn’t take much But love is enough To keep away the pain So come on Give me some attention Just a little warmth And a little affection But we’re just friends And we’re just playing games And if I step up to the plate to play Is our friendship going to end Or is it just going to change? Because everything changes Let’s get it together Let’s not be strangers If we can’t be friends forever No, we can’t be friends forever But we’re just friends And friends is all that we Are ever going to be

I met you, girl, in an ugly place But the light that fell across your face It was shining like the sun You were shining like the sun I had a love and it left me cold I felt the chills running down to my soul I thought that I was done Now you’re shining like the sun I love you, girl, ‘cause you take away All of the ugliness that fills my day I’ve never known someone Who can do the things you’ve done My whole life seems like a waste of time Waiting for this moment to arrive Well, can’t you see Happiness is just a state of mind These kinds of things must happen all the time But not to me No, not to me This world of ours is an ugly place But all I need is to see your face When the ugliness has won And I come home feeling numb And my head just weighs a ton Oh, you’re shining like the sun You’re shining like the sun When I’m lost and overcome And they’ve got me on the run ‘Cause I’m underneath the gun Oh, you’re shining like the sun You’re shining like the sun We’ve only just begun But you might just be the one Oh, you’re shining like the sun You’re shining like the sun It doesn’t matter where you are As long as I’m beside you, girl I’ll be shining like a star

Smile 04:22
I’ve never been a winner But I’m always in the race You’ve never been a sinner But I know you like the taste We’re absolute beginners But we’ve got no time to waste Oh, I’ve never been a winner, girl If you’re looking for a simple man Who doesn’t really understand his world I’m looking for a girl There’s nothing here in my defence A simple act of consequence, it’s true I’d give my life for you Oh, there’s nothing I won’t do To see you smile I’ve never been a winner That’s okay It’s never going to stop me I’m always going to play I’ve never been a winner But one of these days I’ll be standing up straight I’ll be taking first place I’ll be coming your way With that smile upon my face I don’t need a girl to love me sometimes I don’t need a girl to make me feel bad I don’t need a girl to mess with my mind I don’t need these girls, these girls These girls I’ve had I just want you, girl, to want me in your life I’d just love you, girl, to love me, too I just need you, girl, to know There’s nothing I won’t do for you Do for you If you’re looking for a simple man Who doesn’t really understand his world I’m looking for a girl There’s nothing here in my defence A simple act of consequence, it’s true I’ll give my life to you Oh, there’s nothing I won’t do To see you smile You are the music, I am your muse We stick together And we’re never gonna lose We’re never gonna lose I’ve never been a winner But that’s the way You make me feel When you’re coming my way

You've never been in love You and me, why don’t we say it? You and me, why don’t we say it, now? You and me, why don’t we say that this is love? You and me, why are we trying to deny it? When in my heart, it’s rocking like a riot? You and me, why don’t we say that this is love? But you’ve never been in love You tell me it’s true You’ve never let anyone in To see all of the things That you do You and me, why are we trying to hide it? You know there’s nothing we could ever do to fight it You and me, why don’t we say that this is love? You and me, why don’t we show it? Come on, girl, we’ll let the whole world know it You and me, why don’t we say that this is love? But you’ve never been in love You tell me it’s true You’ve never let anyone in To see all of the things That you do I know that you’ve been hurt Your heart’s beaten blue But if you just let me in I’ll show you all of the things That love can do It’s a hard life With nothing to hold onto A hard life With nowhere else to go A hard life With no one there beside you Oh, you know it’s hard But it’s the only life you know ‘Cause you’ve never been in love You tell me it’s true You’ve never let anyone in To see all of the things That you do I know that you’ve been hurt Your heart’s beaten blue But if you just let me in I’ll show you all of the things That love can do Last night, we were in bed I couldn’t quite hear just what you said If I didn’t know better, girl, I could have sworn That you said love But you've never been in love

You are my beautiful place Every time I close my eyes, I see your face My soul survives by your good grace You are my beautiful place The two of us together here, face to face We’ve got a bond between us, hope it never breaks I always want to stay right here in your embrace I never want to let you get away No, I never want to let you get away Because You are my beautiful place Every time I lick my lips, I taste your face I never want to watch you, girl, go to waste You are my beautiful place I want to see the seashells On your velvet beach I want to touch the places That are so hard to reach I want to feel the breeze Beneath your silky skies I want to understand The mystery in your eyes You are the sun inside me You are the light that guides me And if you ever find me in the dark You know you’re right here Shining in my heart You are my beautiful place Every time I close my eyes, I see your face We’ve built a world outside of time and space You are my beautiful place I want to see the sun down In your endless seas I want to hear your songbirds When they’re calling me I want to feel your waves As they lap against my shore No hay otra como tú Mi amor I am your beautiful place You come to me when you want to get away I always want to be the one to help you escape You are my beautiful place

Anyone can fall in love It’s not something so hard to do But then I start believing That there’s nothing else I’m needing, girl But you Anyone can fall in love It’s all our hearts know how to do But just because you can Don’t make it the right thing to do The only word I’ve got is love And it doesn’t seem to be enough To describe the way I feel inside When I hold you tight Is this love..? Anyone can fall in love It’s not something so hard to do But when the changing weather gets us The storm it wets us Through and through Anyone can play these games There’s no ticket at the door But when the cheque arrives You realise Who’s been keeping score The only word I’ve got is hurt But girl I feel so much worse When you go And leave me on my own Oh I’ve got to know Is this love..? I know We only see each other With our eyes closed I guess I guess it’s just the way That love goes I hope We can find a way out Through these shadows I s’pose I suppose we’ll see which way The wind blows Anyone can fall in love It’s all our hearts know how to do But just because you can Don’t make it the right thing to do Anyone can fall in love Anyone can break a heart It’s not something so hard to do But keeping one together Is not something you’ve ever Tried to do But hearts don’t break They just keep beating You were living for the moment Oh, you know it’s so fleeting And when I woke up And I caught you Cheating Well, it just kept beating

Walking away 04:53
I gave you all my love But it just wasn’t enough to make you stay I told you how I feel And now there’s nothing left to say I thought that you were perfect And you gave me the perfect pain No, I don’t think it was worth it Oh, I just don’t deserve the way You keep on walking away And you say that you’ll stay But you just keep walking Just keep on walking away I gave you all my money Oh, and then I watched you walk away I hope that it was funny It was one hell of a price to pay To watch you walking away And you say that you’ll stay But you just keep walking Just keep on walking away I know it’s going to get A whole lot better than this But the way I feel today There’s nothing left for you to miss And I’m thinking Now What do you see When you look at me? What do you say When you call my name? What do you see What do you want me to be? What are you saying Why are you playing your games with me? Laying the blame on me? I won’t take it Now I gave you all my love But it just wasn’t enough to make you stay And if you’ve got a minute I’ve got something I’d like to say This time I’m walking away You can go your own way This time I’m walking This time I’m walking away I was looking back at you You were looking back at me And we both kept on walking Just kept on walking Just keep on walking away

Nowhere 05:04
This street This street Goes nowhere And nowhere Is where I want to be This street This street Don’t go there ‘Cause nowhere Is where it’s taking me These feet These feet Are worn down to the bone Oh, you know I’m going nowhere, girl And I’m going there alone ‘Cause everything that I’ve ever done Everything seems to hurt someone I never wanted to be the one To hurt you This street This street It don’t care ‘Cause nowhere Is a lonely place to be This street This street Is never going home Oh, you know I’m going nowhere, girl And I’m going there alone ‘Cause everything that I’ve ever done Everything seems to hurt someone I never wanted to be the one To hurt you But every time that I look at you I feel my heart and it breaks in two I never wanted to make you cry But I do I don’t want to go, and you won’t go alone Can’t you see that you and me We are never going home I try to find you, but I’m walking blind Enlightened only by the darkness in my mind Our love slowly dies, I watch it unwind And I realise I’m losing your mind I’ve never been a winner Just one of the losers I’ll leave my life With a list of excuses I’ve never been a simple man I’ve always found a way To complicate the issue And misuse my name First I kiss you And then I cause you pain You don’t need me, girl, to love you sometimes You don’t need me, girl, to make you feel bad You don’t need me, girl, to mess with your mind You don’t need me, girl And girl, you should be glad You were my beautiful place Where you were is just an empty space

I remember thinking that things were important I remember thinking that I could change I thought I knew exactly what I wanted Then my life got a little bit strange Then my life got rearranged Then my life just up and changed On the other side of the sun I never knew I needed anyone What have I begun On the other side The other side of the sun I remember thinking that time was not my enemy I remember thinking I had something to gain I thought the world could give me what I wanted Then my life got rearranged Then my life got a little bit strange Now my life just ain’t the same On the other side of the sun Loneliness seemed so much fun What have I done On the other side The other side of the sun On the other side of the earth I thought I knew what I was worth Sometimes I feel like none of this is real But oh, I know it is And that’s my curse On the other side of the sun I never knew I needed anyone What have I become Since the other side The other side of the sun On a rock Surrounded by water On a rock Surrounded by air On a rock Spinning ‘round a fire I stare out into space And there’s Nothing there And when my day is done I see my battles, lost and won Am I the only one On the other side The other side of the sun I remember thinking that things were important I remember thinking that I could change

You know, I know I let a good thing go I watched the red tail-lights Roll down the road I wake up and find The wine that we shared And I put it to my lips ‘Cause you’re not there Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity Maybe we will rise up to the sky Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity Or maybe that’s too soon for you and I These things were never destined to survive Oh you know, I think I knew There was no hope for me and you But I loved you all the same So I played you like a game Knowing both of us would lose Am I the one to blame? ‘Cause now both of us are lost And I’m counting up the cost And trying to love again I just want you to know I’m proud of you And everything you do You know what I said You know it’s true You know I’d wait forever, girl For you Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity Maybe we will sink beneath the sea Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity Or maybe that’s too soon for you and me This world it never meant for us to be Fly now, Lara: Now you’re free
