Track Name: In Your Dreams
You can do anything in your dreams
You can do anything only in your dreams
You can go anywhere or so it seems
Magic stars take you there once upon a time, in your dreams

Where everyone flies with Marios' eyes drifting up into the blue
It's there I want you to know the one that I wanted was you

You can see anyone in your dreams
Wait for me little one I'll meet you in a while in your dreams

Where everyone flies with Marios' eyes drifting up into the blue
I want you to know the one that I wanted was you
There never was anyone else that I wanted but you

You can be anywhere in your dreams
Wait for me little one I'll meet you in a while in your dreams
Yes I'll meet you in a while in your dreams
Track Name: Jimmy Loved The Moon
JIMMY LOVED THE MOON

When he was a young boy Jimmy loved the moon
Jenny said she'd noticed 'I think it's coming soon'
Everybody wants it but it's never coming back our way

She said 'I'm never late I don't look at the mid-day sun
But everybody'd doing it, everybody, everyone'
I don't think I remember all the best things she wrote
And I quote 'when he was a young boy
Jimmy loved the moon
The whole worlds going crazy looking for the dough'
She said 'It's never gonna be that simple

Why not drink your liquor hard and strong
Let it swim in your mind like a rock and roll song
The moment it's gone it's gone. Like a rock and roll song'

When he was a young boy Jimmy loved the moon
The whole worlds going crazy looking for the dough
She said 'I'm never late I don't look at the mid-day sun
But everybody'd doing it, everybody, everyone
Everybody, everyone. Everybody, everyone'

But everybody's doing it. Looking for the dough
Everybody, everyone. Looking for the dough

Track Name: Drive Downtown
There’s only love did someone say
Can leave you broken on the shore
When memories of yesterday
Bring no salvation from the storm
Don't let it bring you down 'cos your a winner
We could drive down town
And we can dance til' we don't wanna hurt anymore

When golden dreams are blown away
To leave you broken on the floor
And everything inside your mind
Has no sensation anymore
Don't let it bring you down 'cos your a winner
We can drive downtown and we can dance
Til' we don't wanna hurt anymore

Out on the waterfront she saw her lover
So deep in the arms and the life of another

Don't let it bring you down 'cos your a winner
Shall we drive downtown where we can dance
Til' we don't wanna hurt anymore?
Track Name: 7.33
At 7.33 I wait for her calling on the phone
At 7.33 I wait for her call
At 7.35 I wait for her knocking on the door
And she does yes she does she does oh she does

At 7.49 she comes and takes me to her arms
At 7.49 I wait for it all
I want her to come around and really hold me tight
And she does yes she does she does oh she does

Cos I can't wait until tomorrow and we won't wait another night
And we aint looking for no sorrow
Before we hit the road to paradise

We get up in the morning and we go out for a ride
At 7.33 we sit in the sun
I say to my girl do you want to drive her for a while?
And she does yes she does. Oh she does
Track Name: The Singing Bird
THE SINGING BIRD
My love is like a flower so fair and pale and tall
Her beauty is astonishing the fairest of them all
I gave my love a singing bird to keep her company
She placed the bird upon the shelf to sing his symphony

And long he kept on singing and the song was sometimes

Sha lala la, Shalala lai though I return to my place in the sky
Sha lala la, Shalala lo I will be with you wherever you go

I gave my love the singing bird to pass the lonely days
I'm hoping that the songs he sings will satisfy her ways
As long he keeps singing and the song is sometimes

Raise your glass and drink while you can
There will be no contingency plan

And still the bird keeps singing and the song is always

Sha lala la, Shalala lai whether you laugh or whether you cry
Sha lala la, Shalala lo you shall have music wherever you go
Sha lala la, Shalala lai whether I live or whether I die
Sha lala la, Shalala lo you shall have music wherever you go

You shall have music wherever you go
Track Name: Love Is A Crazy Thing
Love is a crazy thing make you high make you sing
The heart is a restless sea, rescue you and maybe rescue me

She made him a deal because she wanted to be free
Gave him the 35 said take them 123. Make it baby, do it Joey

Love is a crazy thing make you high make you sing
The heart is a restless sea, rescue you and maybe rescue me

But where is the freedom, yea where is the freedom
We wanted that day? We only wanted some freedom
Just for one day

Oh love is a crazy thing make you high make you sing
The heart is a restless sea, rescue you and maybe rescue me

As a fluorescent burns between the shadows and the night
Where is the love to whisper everything’s alright
Words to help you make it through the night and the crazy thing

Makes you high make you sing. The heart is a restless sea
Rescue you, rescue me baby love is a crazy thing
Love is a crazy thing, rescue me
Track Name: Shirley
Shirley I know that I'm not in your mind oh baby I know that is true
But if ever you feel that it's just a question of time
Well I want you to know I'm with you

Cos this thing my love is always on my mind
Your face, you're ace, you're always gonna be on my mind
And I can feel it grow

When you get out you're a star in their eyes
Every time you come out you're a star
But it's visions that they see, and they're all a question of mind
Shirley let me find out who you really are

This thing called love is always on my mind
Your face, you're ace, so full of grace you're always on my mind
And I can feel it grow

Baby I knew when I saw you
Kinda walkin' down the street the other day
Lonesome's not the way for me
And someday soon you're gonna be free

For this thing called love that's always on my mind
Your face, you're ace, so full of grace you're gentle on my mind
On the wings of love you're gliding through my mind
Like stars in space in every place you're shining
Then I find I can feel it grow

Your face your ace the way that you talk
I kiss you you're beautiful I want you to walk my baby love
I can feel it grow. My baby love I can feel it grow.
Track Name: Everybody's Dreaming
A Cadillac is shimmering down a white dusty trail, the Cowboys are dreamin of driving one one day
They use a lot of time (thinkin') 'how's it done'? Meanwhile there's a radio playing on

Everybody's dreamin' of a place in the sun considering the time when their new life's begun
It takes a long time and money to unstick the glue. Meanwhile there's a hurricane coming through.

So take your pony and ride it but if you made your money hide it
If anybody has a heart you can buy it then break it away from your home

When Jimmy was a little one I understand his Daddy held a knife to his throat, with his fair hand
It takes a lifetime sometimes to know whats going on. In fact I'm still in the darkness and I'm 51

A Limousine is billowing like a white satin sail the superstar comes staggering from his tight rusty jail
He sits for some time to remember where he's from. Meanwhile theres' a radio playing on.
Meanwhile theres' a rodeo to be won.
Track Name: Soul Desires
I can feel your soul desires coming true.
Are you waiting for the world to feel them too
Fly baby fly to the place we belong
Why does every new day seem the same

Do you need me to stick around through this trial
Are you waiting for the world to see u smile
Fly baby fly through the space we belong
It won't be so fast but it won't take very long

I can feel your soul desires coming true.
And your waiting for the world to feel them too

Oh baby I'm in the space you belong
It won't be so fast but it won't take very long
I can feel your soul desires coming true
And your hoping for the world to see them too
And sing along with you

Ready steady go is our game
Here we're waiting for the world to know your name
I can feel your soul desires coming true
Yes your waiting for the world to know it too

Soul desires. Yes your waiting for the world to know your name
Soul Desires coming true. Here we're waiting for the world to have them too
Track Name: yea yea yea
The way you make me feel keeps me hot inside
This rollercoaster ride is very real
And when we're far apart still I glow inside
The things I know inside
Just make me feel so yeah yeah yeah

You make me feel so yea yea yea
Let's make a deal say yeah, yeah, yeah

You said you'd seen the news tonight on Channel 5
Got you all choked up inside 'cos it's not ok
But everything we are is all electrified
Nothing can really get inside
So we still feel so yeah yeah yeah
You make me feel so yea yea yea
Let's make a deal say yeah, yeah, yeah

Once upon a time I was a lonely one now I'm loving you
You're my joy, I'm your toy

The way you make me feel keeps me hot inside
This rollercoaster ride is very real
Everything we are is all electrified
So we'll stay hot inside and make a deal say yeah yeah yeah

Let's make a deal say yea yea yea
You make me feel so yeah, yeah, yea
Track Name: Angel City
ANGEL CITY

We were rolling by the river, me and Marty on a Friday night
We saw those double towers we were blinded by the light
All around us muddy water burning chimneys and iron chains
Oceans' finger here on the East side
Heavens' blood running in our veins

Then she asked me why my eyes were
Black and dark like a stone
I said I was thinking about 1958
And the house where I was born
The first time I saw Angel City
Must have been through my Mothers' eyes
Angel City sure looked pretty
Here I live and here I'll die

There's a small boy and his brother
Kicking stones and learning hard
And a sadness in my memory
Air-raid shelter in the yard
But we can't say we're not sorry
And we can't say we're never scared
For all the years we're still yearning
For the words we never heard

We could hear Hull Fairground noises
As we'd lay at night in bed
Turning wheels on coloured skytrains
Courting girls all dressed in red
When I remember Angel City
It's always through a young boys' eyes
Angel City sure looked pretty
Here I live and here I'll die.

Sometimes when I've been drinking
And my heart beats loud and hard
I can't help crying for the town where
My Father spent all his life
Oh I could show you Angel City
If you could see it through my eyes
Angel City sure would look pretty
Here I live and here I'll die.

But I can't say I'm not sorry
And I can't say that I'm not scared
For all the years we're still yearning
For the words we never heard
Now the trees blow wet and windy
And the clouds begin to weep
Me and Marty we're going home now
We're gonna try and get some sleep
