WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

When we were young the world seemed so old, careless and cold

we did what we were told in our lives

When we were young

Had the world by the tail

Good would prevail

Starships set sail

And none of us would fail in this life

Not when you’re young

We were drawn to whoever could keep us together

And bound by the heavens above

And we tried to survive

Travelling at the speed of love

Whoa When we were young

When we adored the fabulous

Whoa When we were young

We were the foolish fearless

Never knowing the cost of what we paid

Letting someone else be strong

Whoa When we were young

In the moment of grace a long leap of faith

There’s still more glory stored away

It’s my life

I’m here with the lovers

And we burn the bridges we’re crossing over

Just to see the fire light

And the innocent are getting over

Being old tonight

Whoa When we were young

When everything was what it seemed

Whoa When we were young

And every day was how we dreamed

Never knowing the cost of what we paid

Letting someone else be strong

Whoa When we were young

And when you’ll look at yourself tonight

Are you someone you recognize?

You can take back what you’ve given away

But it must be the last time

Whoa When we were young

Whoa When we were young

When we were young

Whoa When we were young

When we adored the fabulous

Whoa When we wereyoung

We were the foolish fearless

Whoa When we were young

We didn’t know it wouldn’t last

Whoa When we were young

MAN

Complicated, Fractious, Twisted, Ego, Circus

Disaponited, Curious, Alive, Tortured, Awkward

Patient, Addicted, Fragile, Foolish, Man

Give it up too much

Give it up

Be gracious

Be thankful

Give it up too much

Give it up

Be honest

Be kind

We’re waiting for the universe

We’re waiting for the light to lead the way

Creating what we can’t reverse

Nothing will ever be the same again

You had it all, you had it all

You lost control and let it go again

We’re waiting for the universe to end

You much too strong for me

And I can’t hold your hand like I used to

You much too hard for me

And I can’t change your heart like I used to

And all that’s let to say to you

It’s to smile when the lights are on

This never was enough for you

Now we both know where we belong

Give it up too much

Give it up

I’ve never given this much to another, no, not to another lover

Give it up too much

Give it up

I’ve never given so much, never given so much, so much

We’re waiting for the universe

We’re waiting for the light to lead the way

Creating what we can’t reverse

Nothing will ever be the same again

You had it all, you had it all

you lost control and let it go again

We’re waiting for the universe to end

Goodbye, good night my love

Goodbye my love

We’re waiting for the universe

We’re waiting for the universe to end

We’re waiting for the universe to end

LOVE LOVE

You bring me right back down to the Earth from the promised land

We’re getting close to the center of the earth with an honest plan

You’ll never be your mother or your father, do you understand?

Until you understand

We don’t have too much time here

And time it travels far too fast

We’re not too far we’re too near

Before they take it from our hands

Why don’t you teach your heart to feel

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to talk

And give you love love, give you love love

Give me give me what I need

We’ll take you right back down to the Earth from the Motherland

This is a first-class journey from the Gods to the son of Man

You’re at the gates of human evolution, don’t you understand?

Why don’t you understand?

Understand! We don’t have too much time here

And time it travels far too fast

We’re not too far we’re too near

Before they take it from our hands

Why don’t you teach your heart to feel

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to talk

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to feel

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to talk

And give you love love, give you love love

Give me give me what I need

We don’t have too much time here

And time it travels far too fast

We’re not too far we’re too near

Before they take it from our hands

Why don’t you teach your heart to feel

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to talk

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to feel

And give you love love, give you love love

Give it all away

Why don’t you teach your heart to talk

And give you love love, give you love love

Give me give me what I need

THE DAY THE WORK IS DONE

When all the work is done, the work is done

A place for everything til everything is in its place

And every setting sun when the work was done was a day that didn’t go to waste

When all the work is done It will be done

Producing everything for everything to be replaced

And in dirty towns we will settle down manufacture for the human race

The greatest story that was ever told in the lights of history

Was the grand designs of other men and they built those walls for you and me

So don’t start thinking we can start again

Start a riot in the streets my friend

Or they’ll start pulling us apart again

Cos idle hands make idle men

Don’t start thinking with your heart again

Cos idle hands make idle men

When the work is done, the work is done

We’ll be bionic and beyond the circuits of our minds

We’ll get nothing done under electric sun

Leave the weight of labour far behind

We’re the greatest story that was ever told but we don’t know where we’re from

And the walls became but a memory of the days when all the work begun

So don’t start thinking we can start again

Start a riot in the streets my friend

Or they’ll start pulling us apart again

Cos idle hands make idle men

Rejoice the day, the day the work is done

Rejoice the day, the day the work is done

Everybody’s counting hours

Everybody’s countinghours

Til the day the work is done Til the day the work is done

So don’t start thinking we can start again

Start a riot in the streets my friend

Or they’ll start pulling us apart again

Cos idle hands make idle men

So don’t start thinking we can start again

Start a riot in the streets myfriend

Or they’ll start pulling us apart again

Cos idle hands make idle men

Rejoice the day,the day the work is done

Rejoice the day, the day the work is done

Everybody’s counting hours

Everybody’s counting hours

BEAUTIFUL

Let all that’s simple pass you by

Let all that lives be free to die

We’re all, we’re all key to life

Face all that rage and history

It makes no sense to you and me

We’re all, we’re all free to fight

I broke all my vows, my common sense

Says find vocation somewhere else

This should’ve been so beautiful

Should’ve been my proudest moment

How to have and lose you all

How to be a disappointment

Save your cheers and my applause

I never was worth fighting for

This should’ve been so beautiful

Been so beautiful

It could’ve been so beautiful tonight

Lay all that’s sinful down to rest

May all our judgements be confessed

We’re all, we’re all guilty now

Drink for the crowd not for yourself

Til someone hears your cry for help

Let’s all, let’s all take a bow

I spent all my mind on making sense

It made no difference in the end

This should’ve been so beautiful

Should’ve been my proudest moment

How to have and lose you all

How to be a disappointment

Save your cheers and my applause

I never was worth fighting for

This should’ve been so beautiful

Been so beautiful

It could’ve been so beautiful tonight

I close my eyes and I am somebody else

Tonight I close my eyes and I don’t need any help

Every moment of laughter

Every moment I fear

Every moment that you’re not here

This should’ve been so beautiful, so beautiful, be so beautiful

This should have been so beautiful, been so beautiful

This should’ve been so beautiful

Should’ve been my proudest moment

How to have and lose you all

How to be a disappointment

Save your cheers and my applause

I never was worth fighting for

This should’ve been so beautiful

Been so beautiful

It could’ve been so beautiful tonight

DON’T SAY GOODBYE

Don’t stay where you are not loved

Those people obscure the view

But if I’ve done my job

They won’t want to mess with you

Finance and romances

A place where you’ll exist

Live with your mother’ smile

But see you through daddy’s eyes

You might lose your dignity

But it’s not what it used to be

And don’t say goodbye to the world

Until you’ve loved somebody

Don’t say goodbye to the world

Until you’ve lived like kings and queens

I’ll be the first and last thing that you see

But don’t say goodbye to me

Just listen to your heart

Not the voices in your head

Forget how it made you feel

But don’t forget what was said

Tears are words than we can touch

When words only say so much

Want what you’ve got

Then you’ll always have enough

You might lose your dignity

But look what its done for me

And don’t say goodbye to the world

Until you’ve loved somebody

Don’t say goodbye to the world

Until you’ve lived like kings and queens

I’ll be the first and last thing that you see

But don’t say goodbye to me

And don’t say goodbye to the world

Until you ‘ve loved somebody

Don’t say goodbye to the world

Until you’ve lived like kings and queens

I’ll be the first and last thing that you see

But don’t say goodbye to me

ALIENS

Alien Alien Alien Alien Alien Alien Alien Alien

Through the carnage of the crash

Baby I’m with you

And the photos in a flash

Baby I’m with you

Through violent seas

Baby I’m with you

Until release

Baby I’m with you

And all the animals in the park

Are waiting for their dinner to come

And all the creatures in the dark

Are waiting for the light to come on

We are the aliens,we are, we are, we are alien

God loves the aliens, we are, we are, we are alien

All the animals in the park, alien

And all the strangers that wake up in the dark

Are waiting for the light to come on

Alien Alien

Through electronic desire

Baby I’m with you

And the elements of fire

Baby I’m with you

Through everything

Baby I’m with you

All the counterfeited scream tonight

When all the elevated become illuminated

We are the aliens, we are, we are, we are alien

God loves the aliens, we are, we are, we are alien

All the animals in the park, alien

And all the strangers that wake up in the dark

Are waiting for the light to come on

Alien, alien, alien, alien, alien, alien, alien

We are the aliens, we are, we are, we are alien

God loves the aliens, we are, we are, we are alien

All the animals in the park, alien

And all the strangers that wake up in the dark

Alien

WONDERFUL WORLD

What a wonderful world this is

What a wonderful world this is

It makes me want to kiss

What a beautiful kiss this is

What a beautiful kiss of life just before I die

I’ve been spending time

I’ve been losing time

Time was all we had but it was never ours to keep

Time can help you find the ground and knock you off your feet

All those minutes get lost in time

One step forward two steps behind

So before I think myself too deep

What a wonderful world this is

What a wonderful world this is

What a delicate tale of bliss

That I don’t want to miss

In this moment where we all exist

On the precipice of the abyss

It always was, how it is

Spending time, wasting time

I’ve been spending time, I’ve been wasting time

Time was all we had but it was never ours to keep

Time can help you find the ground and knock you off your feet

All those minutes get lost in time

One step forward two steps behind

So before I think myself too deep

What a wonderful world this is

No time… Am I losing my mind

No time… Am I losing my mind

There’s no time for us, no time for us until we’re out of time

There’s no time for us, no time

What a wonderful world this is

There’s no time for us, no time (we’re running out of time)

(Time was all we had but it was never ours to keep

Time was all we had but it was never ours to keep

Time was all we had but it was never ours to keep)
