Between Two Islands

We sailed in a fishing-boat
Between these two shores
The Island of Lovers
And the Island of Whores

You at the helm getting
Soaked to the skin
Taking me to places
I'd never been

Where are you tonight?
In the clouds or on the sea?
I'm thinking of you now
Do you ever think of me?

In different locations
Taken by surprise
I woke up one morning
And looked in your eyes

What were you thinking?
I never knew
You were the captain
I was the crew

Where are you tonight?
In the clouds or on the sea?
I'm thinking of you now
Do you ever think of me?

Catching my eye
I wonder what you saw?
A not quite unrequited lover
Or just another whore?

Safe in our life-jackets
Salvaged from the sea...
Now I'm drowning
Won't you rescue me?

Where are you tonight?
In the clouds or on the sea?
I'm thinking of you now
Do you ever think of me?

"I want you
And I want you to want me, baby
I want you
And I want you to want me too
I want you
And I want you to want me, baby
I want you
And I want you to want me too
The way that I want you"

 

Bet She's Not Your Girlfriend

Whisper whisper whisper whisper)
Whisper 'round the town,
'cause you're my friend and that's the end
For you're the only one in town
Who they will beg to hang around with
You're so beautiful and calm
But with an attitude that says:
"Hands-off, you're just not good enough"

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:

(Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Well, that's as may be, in a way, but it's okay
We laugh "touche'", while they stare in front of us
They draw away, as if to say:
"Who are these people anyway?
How dare they confront us?"

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:

(Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Oh no no no
Oh no no no
(Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend
Oh oh oh Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend)

I'd rather die, than satisfy their curiousity
I'm kind of shy and dry, and verging on ugly
They wonder what that I have got, that they have not
They'll never understand that none of that matters

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:

(Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

(Oh oh oh Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend
Oh oh oh Girlfriend)
Bet she's not your, bet she's not your,
Bet she's not your,bet she's not your,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend)
Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no

(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Bet she's not your girlfriend

 

Bilingual: Before

The telephone's not answered
So many times you'll call
For many different reasons
So many tears will fall

Before you find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for

So many fears will haunt you
Deny them or regret
Some men will make you want to
And you will not forget

Before you find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for

There's a story of a man who loved too much
He ended up inside a prison cell
You've got to want to give to get it
Or you could land up in the same suspicious hell

It's happened before
It's happened before
Coincidence and patience
Will mend this fatal flaw
Though it may seem a long wait
Others have been here

Before you find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for

One day when the phone starts ringing
You'll answer to the words you're longing for
No tears, no trade, no prison cell
Whatever you need he will return more

It's happened before
It's happened before

You find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for

You find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for

It's happened before
It's happened before

 

Birthday Boy

Birthday boy
Can't explain
Christmas Eve
He's born again

On the line
A broken train
Going nowhere
Endless rain

Birthday Boy
So afraid
Plays the machines
In the arcade

Oh baby do you remember
He's been through all this before?
Spent the summer
Getting nowhere
Taking all of the blame
For the city
Calculating
From pain comes pity

Christmas Eve
A time of joy
If you believe
In Birthday Boy

This time around
It's all a mistake
Is he deluded
Or just a fake?

Oh baby do you remember
He's been through all this before?
Spent the summer
Getting nowhere
Taking all of the blame
For the city
Calculating
From pain comes pity

If you knew his name
Would you feel the same?
If you knew his name?

Birthday boy
Stands apart
As the drama's
About to start

A quick betrayal
A speedy trial
As before
Complete denial

Oh baby do you remember
He's been through all this before?
Spent the summer
Getting nowhere
Taking all of the blame for the city
Calculating
From pain comes pity

If you knew his name
Would you feel the same?

 

Black Tie White Noise

Getting my facts from a Benneton ad
I'm lookin' thru African eyes
Lit by the glare of an L.A. fire
Black tie white noise
I've got a face, not just my race, Bang Bang I've got you babe

Putting on the black tie

Crankin up the white noise

Sun comes up and the man goes down
And the woman comes again
Just an hour or so to be safe from fear
Black tie white noise
Then we jump thru hoops, we're divisable now, just disappear

Putting on the black tie

Crankin up the white noise

We reach out over race and hold each other's hands
Then die in the flames singing "we shall overcome"
Whoa! What's going on?
There'll be some blood no doubt about it
But we'll come thru don't doubt it
I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me
I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me
You won't kill me
You won't kill me no
But I look into your eyes
And I wonder sometimes

Putting on the black tie

Crankin up the white noise

Oh Lord, just let him see me
Lord, Lord just let him hear me
Let him call me brother
Let him put his arms around me
Let him put his hands together.

Reach out over race and hold each other's hands
Walk thru the nite thinking we are the world
Whoa! What's going on?
There will be some blood no doubt about it
But we'll come thru don't doubt it
I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me
And I turn my back for I know you won't kill me
You won't kill me
You won't kill me no
But I wonder why
Yes, I wonder why sometimes

Putting on the black tie

Crankin up the white noise

They'll show us how to break the rules
But never how to make the rules
Reduce us down to witless punks
Black tie white noise
Facist cries both black and white, who's got the blood, who's got the gun.
Putting on the black tie, cranking out the white noise

Oh yeah
Cranking out
Cranking out
Cranking out white noise
Black tie white noise
Cranking out
Cranking out
Putting on the black tie
Cranking up the white noise
Cranking out
Cranking out
Cranking out white noise
Black tie white noise
Cranking out
Cranking out

 

Boy Strange

See Boy Strange on the
Horizon of love
He's calling to you
What do you say?

See Boy Strange as an
Example of youth
So close to the truth
But still far away

And he's such a strange boy
Will he make a good
Exchange for
The one before a closed door
That you left behind?

When you realise that this boy
Is strange
It's too late to change
Your point of view

He's often there when the
Sun meets the sky
With a perfect alibi
Unlike you

And he's such a strange boy
D'you think he'll make a good
Exchange for
The one before a closed door
That you left behind?

To talk of common sense is a
Complete waste of time
His looks are a crime
Bound to commit

In the eyes of the world he's
A borderline fool
Both naive and cruel
Why would you inflict
Him on you?

Building a Wall

Protection (prevention)
Detection (detention)
There's no where to defect to any more
[X2]

I'm building a wall
A fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in
[X2]

Back then on a bomb site
We were spies among the ruins
Such precocious barbarians
On TV we saw
Cold War

Protection (prevention)
Detection (detention)
There's no where to defect to any more
[X2]

I'm leaving the world
It's all wrong
Not so much what many are doing
Much more what's within us

I'm building a wall
A fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in

Jesus and the man from Angol (?)
Caesar conquered Gaul
Scouting for Centurians
On a Roman war

Through the woods, the trees
And further on, the sea
We lived in the shadow of the wall
Sand in the sandwiches
Wasps in the tea
It was a free country
(Who do you think you are, Captain Britain?)

I'm building a wall
A fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in

I'm losing my head
Well, why not?
More work for the undertaker
Means there's less for me

I'm building a wall
A fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in
[X3]

 

Can You Forgive Her?

Another night with open eyes
Too late to sleep, too soon to rise
You're short of breath, is it a heart attack?
Hot and feverish you face the fact

You're in love, and it feels like shame
Because she's gone and made a fool of you in public again
You're in love, and it feels like pain
Because you know there's too much truth in everything she claims

So ask yourself now: Can you forgive her
If she wants you to?
Ask yourself: Can you even deliver
What she demands of you?

You drift into the strangest dreams
Of youthful follies and changing teams
Admit you're wrong, oh, no, not yet
Then you wake up and remember that you can't forget

She's made you some kind of laughing stock
Because you dance to disco, and you don't like rock
She'd make fun of you, and even in bed
Said she was gonna go and get herself a real man instead

So ask yourself now: Can you forgive her
If she begs you to?
Ask yourself: Can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish!
(But that's childish, so childish!)

Remember when you were more easily led
Behind the cricket pavillion and the bicycle shed
Trembling as your dreams came true
You looked right into those blue eyes and knew

It was love, and now you can't pretend
You've forgotten all the promises of that first friend
It's bad enough, she knows how you feel
But she's not prepared to share you with the memory

So ask yourself now: Can you forgive her
If she begs you to?
Ask yourself: Can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Ask yourself now: Can you forgive her
If she begs you to?
And ask yourself: Can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish!

 

Casanova in Hell

The girl's perfection
Inspires affection
It's queer
That here
He can't cast his spell
In her direction
Somewhere near
One senses fear
Casanova in Hell

The girl is naked
The boy is naked
He hides
Inside
A secret chamber
There to gape
Through a velvet drape
And dream of rape
Casanova in Hell

Her sharp suggestion
He couldn't get an erection
Came as a shock
He finds himself
A laughing-stock
His ageing fate
To contemplate
Casanova in Hell

Back in the library
His revenge is his story
What he will write
Will recall the bite
Of his wit
And legendary appetite
The sybarite
Casanova is well

For Casanova has the last laugh
Creates the myth and vindication
Of his sexual vocation
Makes the definitive collection
His lives and lovers and above all
His erection
Will live in history
