Paper Plane

Riding on a big white butterfly
I turned my back away towards the sky
I closed my eyes to look for something
Saw myself as really nothing
Then I realised my butterfly
Wasn't really up there with me
We all make mistakes, forgive me
Would you like to ride my butterfly

Riding on a long blue paperplane
Getting seasick, sorry once again
Landing strip is getting nearer
Hope the foglifts, make it clearer
Then I realised my paperplane
Wasn't really up there with me
We all make mistakes, forgive me
Would you like to ride my paperplane

Riding in a three grand Deutsche car
A to B is often very far
Home is near, but such a long way
Legs and heads all feel the wrong way
Then I realised my Deutsche car
Is only there to get me somewhere
Even so I really do care
Would you like to ride my Deutsche car

 

Paradise Flat

She was sold at the paradise flats
Tell me, what d'you think of that?
No goodbye, just a pat on the back

Well I know she's made her mind up
That she don't need me around
I'm trying just to see what you're trying to do to me
Your trying to screw me down
Right through the ground oh yeah

In paradise flats there's rooms for hire,
No-one cares who you are
You won't come back, it's too late now
You've been seen too much
I know what you are
You won't come back, no you won't come back

Well I know she's made her mind up
That she don't need me around
Oh I'm trying just to see what you're trying to do to me
Your trying to screw me down
Right through the ground oh yeah

 

Perfect Remedy

I thought that you would leave my memory
I didn't think you'd stay in mind, I didn't think at all
At least I thought that with some misery
I'd find a way to have it all, and with or without you

But it's all right, this or any way
It's all right, which any other way
Any night or any other day
It's all right, put it another way
You do like you do when you do what you do like I do
Day out, day in you're always trying to fight for control

You thought you had the perfect remedy
A perfect remedy for me, a remedy for all
You say at last you tried so pleasantly
To find a way to have it all, or have a drink on me

But it's all right, this or any way
It's all right, which any other way
Any night or any other day
It's all right, put it another way
You do like you do when you do what you do like I do
Day out, day in you're always trying to fight for control

I guess it's just a faded memory
That comes along with certainty
Then goes and fades away
But it's all right, this or any way
It's all right, which any other way
Any night or any other day
It's all right

 

Pictures of Matchstick Men

When I look up to the skies
I see your eyes a funny kind of yellow
I rush home to bed I soak my head
I see your face underneath my pillow
I wake next morning, tired, still yawning
See your face come peeping through my window

Pictures of matchstick men and you
Mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

Windows echo your reflection
When I look in their direction now
When will this haunting stop?
Your face it just won't leave me alone

Pictures of matchstick men and you
Mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

You're in the sky and with the sky
You make men cry, you lie
You're in the sky and with the sky
You make men cry, you lie

Pictures of matchstick men and
Pictures of matchstick men and you
Pictures of matchstick men ....

 

Point Of No Return

Is it another day
Is there another way
Nothing at all to say
It's just another day without you
Long way without you
Should I be holding back
Should I be holding out
Should I be keeping quiet
When I could scream and shout about you
All out about you
You, you give me everything but love
Shall I hold on, has it all gone

This is the way it is
This is the point of no return
We get the messages
Still we have everything to learn
Telling it like it is
This is the point of no return

Am I the last to learn
Am I the last to know
Is it a parting shot
Is it the final blow without you
To go without you
You, you give me everything but love
Shall I hold on, has it all gone

This is the way it is
This is the point of no return
We get the messages
Still we have everything to learn
Telling it like it is
This is the point of no return

Always too long, always too far
Always too strong for me to defend
Is it a fade, is it an end

You, you give me everything but love
Shall I hold on, has it all gone

This is the way it is
This is the point of no return
We get the messages
Still we have everything to learn
Telling it like it is
This is the point of no return

This is the way it is
This is the point of no return
We get the messages
Still we have everything to learn
Telling it like it is
This is the point of no return
This is the way it is

The point of no return
The point of no return
The point of no return
The point of no return
The point of no return
The point of no return

 

Poor Old Man

He is in his room, men will be there soon
They come to smash the heaven he has known
Now he's sure to know soon that he must go
This backstreet dream he has to leave behind
Oh, what a shame, oh what a shame

He's a poor old man, poor old man
Poor old man, can we help you?

Things are at their worst, what should he do first?
He must wonder, no one wants to know
He must spread his wings, pack away his things
A sack is all he needs for all he owns
Tears they blind his eyes, tears blind his eyes

He's a poor old man, poor old man
Poor old man, can we help you at all?

Poor old man, poor old man
Poor old man, can we help you at all?

Poor old man, poor old man
Poor old man, can we help you at all?

 

Price of Love

Wine is sweet and gin is bitter
You drink all you can but you won't forget her
You kiss one girl, you kiss another
You kiss them all but you won't recover

That's the price of love, the price of love
The debt you pay with tears and pain
The price of love, the price of love
Costs you more when you're to blame

You're dancing slow, you're dancing fast
You're happy now but that won't last
You talk too much, you laugh too loud
You see her face in every crowd

That's the price of love, the price of love
The debt you pay with tears and pain
The price of love, the price of love
Costs you more when you're to blame

That's the price of love, the price of love
The debt you pay with tears and pain
The price of love, the price of love
Costs you more when you're to blame
That's the price of love, the price of love
The debt you pay with tears and pain
The price of love, the price of love
Costs you more when you're to blame

That's the price of love, that's the price of love
That's the price of love
That's the price of love
That's the price of love
That's the price of love

 

Proud Mary

Left a good job in the city, working for the man every night and day
And I never lost a minute of sleeping worrying 'bout the way things might have been
Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river

Been a lot of places in Memphis, pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city 'til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen
Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river

Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river

Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river

If you come down to the river, bet you're gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry if you don't have no money, people on the river are happy to give
Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river

Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary she just keeps on burning
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin on the river

 

Pump It Up

I've been on tenterhooks
Ending in dirty looks,
Listen to the muzak,
Thinking 'bout this 'n' that.
She said that's that.
I don't wanna chitter-chat.
Turn it down a little bit
Or turn it down flat.

Pump it up, when you don't really need it.
Pump it up, until you can feel it.

Down in the pleasure centre,
Hell bent or heaven sent,
Listen to the propaganda,
Listen to the latest slander.
There's nothing underhand
That she wouldn't understand.

Pump it up, until you can feel it.
Pump it up, when you don't really need it.

She's been a bad girl.
She's like a chemical.
Though you try to stop it,
She's like a narcotic.
You wanna torture her.
You wanna talk to her.
All the things you bought for her,
Putting up your temperature.

Pump it up, until you can feel it.
Pump it up, when you don't really need it.

Out in the fashion show,
Down in the bargain bin,
You put your passion out
Under the pressure pin.
Fall into submission,
Hit-and-run transmission.
No use wishing now for any other sin.

Pump it up, until you can feel it.
Pump it up, when you don't really need it.

Pump it up, until you can feel it.
Pump it up, when you don't really need it.

Pump it up, until you can feel it.
Pump it up, when you don't really need it.
You don't really need it

You don't really need it
You don't really need it

 

Queenie

A long time ago I saw you there
Sitting in a corner chair
I was looking for a place to stay
You were only hanging out and hanging around
I didn't see what I was looking for
I guess I never really knew
I was looking for a private eye
You never knew what I was talking about

Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won't you come along and make a home with me
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could never stop it if we wanted to
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could be so happy with a family

The next time I saw you was the summertime
I'm just a little older now
Things seemed to get a little better then
You went out and got a ticket taking you home
It really was a shame I didn't follow you
It would have saved a lot of time
I had to come around eventually
And ask you if you want to maybe marry me

Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won't you come along and make a home with me
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could never stop it if we wanted to
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could be so happy with a family

Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won't you come along and make a home with me
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could never stop it if we wanted to
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could be so happy with a family
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, won't you come along and make a home with me
Queenie, Queenie, Queenie, we could settle down and make some history
