1. Grazed by Heaven (4:31)
Take a look inside my sensual parade
Once you're in you'll never go
Scream into submission, no design, or masquerade
The best of times you'll ever know

I want more than reality, insanity
Desperation in disguise

Grazed by heaven
Testify your soul and we'll begin
Taste my heaven
Succumb to your desires and your sins

Colorize me with your physical charade
You won't leave this night alone
Feed into my hunger, realize I'm not afraid
Don't disguise what I bestow

I see you melting gradually come to me
The best of times is all I know

Grazed by heaven
Testify your soul and we'll begin
Taste my heaven
Succumb to your desires and your sins

It don't feel so dirty
It don't feel so complicated
We all got the same goal in mind
Is it taboo maybe
Is it I'm intoxicated
But you know we can't keep it locked inside

I see you melting gradually, come to me
The best of times is all I know, oh

Grazed by heaven
Testify your soul and we'll begin
Taste my heaven
Succumb to your desires and your sins
2. Living the Dream (5:34)
I got the sun and the moon on the one hand
Rise to the future it's there to discover

I know I'm living the dream
A place that I've never been
I got both feet on the ground
I see the world turn around

I've got the sun and the moon on the one hand
The stars as they're falling down in the other
You can rely on me to show you the way
I've got the sun and the moon on the one hand
Rise to the future, it's there to discover
The world is waiting, this is what you need

It doesn't matter who you trust
The words are written in the dust

I've got the sun and the moon on the one hand
The stars as they're falling down in the other
You can rely on me to show you the way
I've got the sun and the moon on the one hand
Rise to the future, it's there to discover
The world is waiting, this is what you need

Forget the world I once knew
The dream is pulling me through
You give your all and you win
No second chance to begin

I've got the sun and the moon on the one hand
The stars as they're falling down in the other
You can rely on me to show you the way
I've got the sun and the moon on the one hand
Rise to the future, it's there to discover
The world is waiting, this is what you need
3. Take Away My Soul (6:13)
Take away my soul
See the look upon my face
That's forever
Losing all control
Trying not to fall from grace
That's forever

We make the same mistakes
But some they take much longer
You like to show them to the world
It's just a photograph
A shot in space and time
I put my trust in you
But now I can't go on

Take away my soul
See the look upon my face
That's forever
Losing all control
Trying not to fall from grace
That's forever

If you could only know how this makes me feel
How did we let it get so far
Stealing my soul away for everyone to see
We can never be the same again, oh no, no

I am not a person willing to buy into this (I'm a free man)
I stand by my own decision I made long ago (I'm a free man)
I am stronger and I go my own way

We make the same mistakes
But some they take much longer
You like to show them to the world
It's just a photograph
A shot in space and time
I put my trust in you
But now I can't go on

Take away my soul
See the look upon my face
That's forever
Losing all control
Trying not to fall from grace
That's forever
4. Knocking at My Door (4:58)
I heard a sound
There was talking outside my door
I get up, turn on the light
There's a shadow across my floor
I go outside
Footsteps behind my feet
I turn around, there's no one there
Just the silence of a street

Oh, the fear of darkness was upon me
Too scared to scream, am I going insane?

They've been knocking at my door
They keep coming back for more
I don't know them but still they come

I'm back inside
There's nothing there I recognize
I used to dream, but this is real
And it's killing me inside
I hear a voice
The words are running round my head
I lay down, turn off the light
Is it something that I said

Oh, the fear of darkness was upon me
Too scared to scream, am I going insane?

They've been knocking at my door
They keep coming back for more
I don't know them but still they come
No place for hiding, no place to run

Tell me, when will this nightmare be over?
I begin to fear the sound of my own name

They've been knocking at my door
They keep coming back for more
I don't know them but still they come
No place for hiding, no place to run
5. Rocks in the Road (8:18)
When your world crashes down around you
And you have to face the sticks and stones alone
We need words to comfort and guide us
When we're somewhere on the road so far from home

And you know darned well, that it's just a little pain
There's nothing to lose, and everything to gain

Rocks in the road make us stumble and fall
Lights go down and we just can't see it all
But we rise back up and we stand up tall
Better than we ever were before

All the ways that you conceal your sadness
How it eats you when you just can't find the door
And you hide what's there behind your eyes
You can lead a heart to love but you can't make it fall

And you know darned well, it's just a little pain
There's nothing to lose and everything to gain

Rocks in the road make us stumble and fall
Lights go down and we just can't see it all
But we rise back up and we stand up tall
Better than we ever were before

When you look for a meaning
And the world that says so much to you
Unspoken feelings
They will never ever pull you through
When I look to the future
And the way the world will end
We have passion for each other
And we will witness love again
6. Waters Flowin' (4:27)
I walked down to the Quay at midnight to watch the waters flowin'
Saw a shadow playin' there, his audience was growin'
He sang to all the young girls there about a deeper yearning
And all the eyes and all the ears could feel his passion burning

And the people would come from miles around
Just to listen to his sweet sound
It was every time just about midnight
Down by the waters flowin'

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Down by the waters flowin'

Then one night as I was walking I felt a sense of fear
The deep dark water seemed to say "There's nothing for you here"
Then I thought that I saw something that chilled me to the bone
But harbour lights play tricks on eyes, I turned and headed home

And the people would come from miles around
Just to listen to his sweet sound
It was every time just about midnight
Down by the waters flowin'

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Down by the waters flowin'

No one ever saw the man or heard him play again
So sad to hear that he had gone
Then one day upon the sand they found his old guitar
But would it ever play that sweet song again?

And the people would come from miles around
Just to listen to his sweet sound
It was every time just about midnight
Down by the waters flowin'

And the people would come from miles around
Just to listen to his sweet sound
But the only song that guitar would play
Was down by the waters flowin'

Down by the waters flowin'
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Down by the waters flowin'
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Down by the waters flowin'
Down by the waters flowin'
7. It's All Been Said (6:01)
Stop talking, stop speeding
We're believing everything we're reading
Still chasing empty words
Only there to chase the dollar bill and back to the news

Sunday morning, the papers say
That my luck was gonna change for good this time

The rumours run, we guard the times
Against the Independent Sun
We scream for words, the story's out
And all before your day's begun

Show our darkest hours
There under the spotlight
Who will be the star
Who will win the prize fight

Read the headlines every day
Did a killer run amok on Broadway
Stop talking, it's all been said
We've been addicted and we hunger for the very next line

Monday morning, the paper told me
That the world would maybe end but that's old news

The city, the pressure
See celebrity and crime together
Stop talking, it's all been said
So many stories and it makes you wonder
They're all the same but just a different colour
We've been addicted and we hunger for the very next line
8. Goodbye to Innocence (3:33)
9 o' clock on Monday morning, always runnin' late
Prior to commitments, she would always miss the gate
Now it was pretty obvious that she was teacher's pet
But just like any teenage boy we took what we could get

To say goodbye to innocence
What she's teachin' you don't learn at school
So say goodbye to innocence
She's breakin' all the rules
And she's nobody's fool

Turning up for classes, she was never there on time
And what she had been up to was on every school boy's mind
Young imaginations left to wonder can go wild
But she was no delinquent, she was just a wild child

To say goodbye to innocence
What she's teachin' you don't learn at school
So say goodbye to innocence
She's breakin' all the rules
And she's nobody's fool

Every school has got one but they're sometimes hard to see
Flirtatious confrontations always been the death of me
Now you could make her master class if she gives you the glance
But if you're late make no mistake, there'll be no second chance

To say goodbye to innocence
What she's teachin' you don't learn at school
So say goodbye to innocence
She's breakin' all the rules
And she's nobody's fool
9. Falling Under Your Spell (3:24)
I see it, I feel it, temptation calls
I hear it, she haunts me as darkness falls
She's standing in the hallway and my head begins to spin
With this brand new fascination, it's a game I cannot win

Falling under your spell
So let the magic begin
Falling under your spell
Whoa, it draws me in
Falling under your spell
I'm beginning to see the light
Falling under your spell
I know, I know

I just can't believe it, she'll have her way
I follow, she leads me, I have no say
I see by her expression, as she keeps me hypnotised
I can't control this feeling, it's more than I realised

Falling under your spell
So let the magic begin
Falling under your spell
Whoa, it draws me in
Falling under your spell
I'm beginning to see the light
Falling under your spell
I know, I know

Falling under your spell
So let the magic begin
Falling under your spell
Whoa, it draws me in
Falling under your spell
I'm beginning to see the light
Falling under your spell
I know, I know
10. Dreams of Yesteryear (5:25)
Let me tell you how it was so many years ago
When lives were lived in dreams without a care
Those days will always be mine
There to last a lifetime
And take with me anytime, anywhere

Those thoughts were of a different time, they seem like yesterday
But society had written different rules
The world was rearranging
And our whole life was changing
Our ways of thinking came from different schools

But all the while our hearts were one
As love bought us together
The pain of youth will drown in ecstasy
The more things tend to change
The more the young will make it better

And so we hold on tightly to those days that made us smile
Those distant feelings help me through the day
And though I should know better
To live the past forever
It stays with us and never goes away

But all the while our hearts were one
As love bought us together
The pain of youth will drown in ecstasy
The more things tend to change
The more the young will make it better

But all the while our hearts were one
As love bought us together
The pain of youth will drown in ecstasy
The more things tend to change
The more the young will make it better
