AFRAID TO LOVE

(Tony O'Malley/Marty Townsend)

 

LISTEN, WHILE I BARE MY SOUL
AND SHARE MY FEARS
SEEMS LIKE ALL MY LOVE AFFAIRS
THEY ALWAYS END IN TEARS

YOU SEE, I'M LOSING CONTROL
GUESS I NEED A LITTLE HELP FROM ABOVE
I FIND MYSELF FALLING WAY TOO FAST
BUT STILL AFRAID TO LOVE

SHE IS GRACEFUL
SHE IS DIVINE
AND IT FEELS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

THOUGH I'VE BIN DOWN THIS STREET BEFORE
IS THIS A BRAND NEW DAY?

SO, HERE I GO AGAIN
SHE'S ALL I'M THINKING OF
GOT THE WIND IN MY SAILS NOW I WON'T
BE AFRAID TO LOVE

SHE IS GRACEFUL
SHE IS DIVINE
AND IT FEELS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

THOUGH I'VE BIN DOWN THIS STREET BEFORE
IS THIS A BRAND NEW DAY?

SO, HERE I GO AGAIN
SHE'S ALL I'M THINKING OF
GOT THE WIND IN MY SAILS NOW
I WON'T BE AFRAID TO LOVE
NOW I'M NOT AFRAID TO LOVE
NOT AFRAID TO LOVE AGAIN...

CLOSE TO PAIN

(Tony O'Malley/Jim Campbell/Hamish Stuart)

 

I FEEL THAT SENSE OF WONDER 
BEING HERE WITH YOU 
BATHING IN YOUR SMILE 
AND ALL THE THINGS YOU DO 
WHEN I GET THAT FEELING, YEAH 
TEARS ME APART TO SEE HOW MUCH YOU CARE 
AND I KNOW IT'S FROM YOUR HEART 

SOMETIMES I FEEL SO GUILTY 
'COS I KNOW I'VE CAUSED YOU PAIN 
GIRL, NOW I REALIZE 
SOMEHOW I MUST EXPLAIN 
DON'T YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU 
BUT IT TEARS ME APART 
TO SHOW HOW MUCH I CARE 
AND TO SHOW WHAT'S IN MY HEART 

LOVE LIVES SO VERY CLOSE TO PAIN 
LOVE CAN DRIVE YOU HALF INSANE 
ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART 
TEAR YOUR LIFE TO PIECES 
IF YOU YOU FEEL IT FALL APART 
WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE THE GOOD TIMES HAVE GONE 
LOVE LIVES VERY CLOSE TO PAIN 

THAT SAME OLD SENSE OF WONDER 
OVERWHELMS MY SOUL 
GOES BEYOND EMOTION 
FULFILLING EVERY ROLE 
GET THAT SPECIAL FEELING 
LIKE AT THE START 
THE FEELING WE STILL SHARE 
WHEN WE KNOW IT ALL BY HEART 

LOVE LIVES SO VERY CLOSE TO PAIN 
LOVE CAN DRIVE YOU HALF INSANE 
ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART 
TEAR YOUR LIFE TO PIECES 
IF YOU YOU FEEL IT FALL APART 
THOUGH IT LOOKED LIKE THE GOOD TIMES HAVE GONE 
EVERYTHING RIGHT HAD GONE WRONG 
BUT TOGETHER IS WHERE WE BELONG 
EVEN THOUGH 
LOVE LIVES VERY CLOSE TO PAIN 
LOVE LIVES VERY CLOSE TO PAIN

COG IN THE WHEEL

(Tony O'Malley/Dyan Birch)

 

HOW MUCH MEAT CAN ONE MAN EAT? 
HOW MUCH LAND CAN HE TILL?
HE USES MORE THAN HE NEEDS 
OH, AND KILLS JUST FOR THE GREED 
MAN CAN BE REALLY MEAN 
OH, HE THINKS HE OWNS THE WORLD AND MORE 
HE'S SO TIED WITH HIMSELF 
HE NEVER KNOWS JUST WHAT IT'S FOR 

IT ALL BEGAN SO LONG AGO 
BUT WE STEERED NATURE'S COURSE 
WE TOOK A WRONG TURN 
I KNOW THAT'S TRUE 
I GET SO FRUSTRATED 
MAKES ME FEEL SO BAD 
IT MAKES SAD 
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO 
FEELS LIKE THE COG IN THE WHEEL 
CAN'T GET IT TO TURN 
BUT IT KEEPS BURNING ME UP 
YES, IT KEEPS BURNING ME UP 

THINK I'LL TAKE TO THE COUNTRY 
GET SOME DIRT ON MY SHOES 
BE LIKE MY FOREFATHERS 
AND TRY TO SHAKE OFF THESE BLUES 
FEEL LIKE THAT COG IN THE WHEEL 
CAN'T GET IT TO TURN 
GOT TO GET BACK TO THE BOOK 
GET SOMETHING REAL TO LEARN 

WHEN I LOOK AROUND I SEE 
SO MUCH SPACE 
OWNED BY THE FEW - NOT ME AND YOU 
WHY DON'T WE ALL HAVE A BETTER SHARE? 
TELL ME, DOES NOBODY CARE? 
HOW COME I SEE SO MUCH POVERTY 
IN THIS GREEN AND PLEASANT LAND? 
SOMEBODY'S TAKING A BIGGER SLICE 
AND I KNOW THAT IT JUST AIN'T RIGHT 

I'M TRYNA MAKE MY VOICE BE HEARD 
WHEN YOU'RE ALONE IT IS HARD 
SO WE MUST STAND AS ONE 
OR NOTHING WILL BE DONE 
I GET SO FRUSTRATED 
MAKES ME FEEL SO BAD 
IT MAKES SAD 
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO 
FEELS LIKE THE COG IN THE WHEEL 
CAN'T GET IT TO TURN 
BUT IT KEEPS BURNING ME UP 
YES, IT KEEPS BURNING ME UP 

THINK I'LL TAKE TO THE COUNTRY 
GET SOME DIRT ON MY SHOES 
BE LIKE MY FOREFATHERS 
AND TRY TO SHAKE OFF THESE BLUES 
FEEL LIKE THAT COG IN THE WHEEL 
CAN'T GET IT TO TURN 
GOT TO GET BACK TO THE BOOK 
GET SOMETHING REAL TO LEARN 
X2 

I GET SO FRUSTRATED 
MAKES ME FEEL SO BAD 
IT MAKES SAD 
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO 
FEELS LIKE THE COG IN THE WHEEL 

I'M TRYNA MAKE MY VOICE BE HEARD 
WHEN YOU'RE ALONE IT IS HARD 
WE MUST STAND AS ONE 
OR I KNOW NOTHING, NOTHING WILL BE DONE! 

THINK I'LL TAKE TO THE COUNTRY 
GET SOME DIRT ON MY SHOES 
BE LIKE MY FOREFATHERS 
AND TRY TO SHAKE OFF THESE BLUES 
FEEL LIKE THAT COG IN THE WHEEL 
CAN'T GET IT TO TURN 
GOT TO GET BACK TO THE BOOK 
GET SOMETHING REAL TO LEARN

COMMON SENSE

(Tony O'Malley/Frank Collins)

 

I JUST CAN'T TAKE THIS OL' FIGHT ANYMORE  
DON'T SEEM TO HAVE NO RIGHTS NO MORE  
ALL THIS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS  
HAS GONE TOO FAR  
AND WHAT'S IT FOR  
I AGREE IT'S GOT IT'S PLACE  
IN THIS ROTTEN OL' RAT RACE  
BUT COMMON SENSE IS WHAT I'M STANDIN' FOR  

I JUST CAN'T TAKE THIS OL' FIGHT ANYMORE  
JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE  
NOW JUST TO PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE  
DON'T WANNA BE PROTECTED ANYMORE  
THIS NANNY STATE WON'T GET ME BEAT  
I'M STANDIN' ON MY OWN TWO FEET  
COS COMMON SENSE IS WHAT I'M STANDIN' FOR  

GONNA MAKE MY OWN DECISIONS  
COS I'M AN ADULT AFTER ALL  
I KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG  
DON'T NEED RELIGIONS  
TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO  
SO NOW I'M TELLIN' YOU  
I'VE HAD ENOUGH RIGHT NOW I'M THROUGH  

I JUST CAN'T TAKE THIS FIGHT ANYMORE  
JUST CANT TAKE IT NO NO NO MORE  
ALL THIS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS  
HAS GONE TOO FAR  
NOW WHAT'S IT FOR  
I AGREE IT'S GOT IT'S PLACE  
IN THIS ROTTEN OL' RAT RACE  
BUT COMMON SENSE  
COMMON SENSE  
COMMON SENSE  
COMMON SENSE IS WHAT I'M STANDIN FOR

 

FALL IN LOVE

(Tony O'Malley/Simon David Eden)

 

WHEN YOU'VE LOST ALL BELIEF IN YOUR ABILITIES 
YOU'RE DOWN ON BENDED KNEES 
YOU CAN'T FIND ANY CONFIDENCE 
NOTHING IN YOUR LIFE IS MAKING SENSE 
IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT WORKED FOR ME 
TRY THIS PERFECT REMEDY 
AND... 

FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 

DON'T WORRY WHEN YOU FEEL UNSAFE 
THIS HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH 
YOUR HEART WILL FLUTTER, YOU'LL GET BUTTERFLIES 
WHEN THE LOVE-LIGHT SHINES FROM IN HER EYES 
HOW WONDERFUL LIFE FEELS 
WHEN YOU TUMBLE HEAD OVER HEALS 
AND... 

FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
OH, BABY 
OH, MY DARLING 
LET'S FALL IN LOVE AGAIN 
AND AGAIN 
HOW WONDERFUL IT FEELS 
TO FALL IN LOVE 

EVERYBODY HAS A STORY TO TELL 
OF A ROGUE OR A SWEET-TONGUED JEZEBEL 
EVEN CARY GRANT AND LORETTA YOUNG 
IN 'BORN TO BE BAD' THEY BOTH GOT STUNG 
AIN'T NOTHING EVER GONNA CHANGE A THING 
WHEN FOOLISH HEARTS INTO THEIR STEP THEY PUT A SPRING 
AND... 

FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
FALL IN LOVE 
I'M FALLING FALLING FALLING 
YES, I KNOW I'M GONNA FALL 
OH, BABY 
OH, MY DARLING 
LET'S FALL IN LOVE AGAIN 
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN 
HOW WONDERFUL IT FEELS 
TO FALL IN LOVE 
OH, HOW WONDERFUL IT FEELS 
TO FALL IN LOVE

IF I COULD

(Tony O'Malley/Adam Phillips/Hamish Stuart)

 

IF I COULD MAKE IT ACROSS THE WATER 
IF I COULD MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE 
IF I COULD GET TO THE PLACE WHERE I KNOW I'LL BE SAFE 
IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY 
HOW MANY TEARS HAVE BEEN CRIED 

I CAN FEEL IT NOW 
WHAT'S DONE IS DONE 
I'LL GET THROUGH SOMEHOW 
I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE GONE 
FEELS LIKE NOTHING BUT PAIN 
THOUGH I KNOW IT WON'T LAST 
JUST LIKE THE DRIVING RAIN 
IT WILL SURELY PASS 
FEELS LIKE I'M SWIMMING AGAINST THE TIDE 
GOING NOWHERE 

IF I COULD MAKE IT ACROSS THE WATER 
IF I COULD MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE 
IF I COULD GET TO THE PLACE WHERE I KNOW I'LL BE SAFE 
IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY 
HOW MANY TEARS HAVE BEEN CRIED 

SOME PEOPLE STAY TOGETHER 
WHILE OTHERS DRIFT APART 
THAT'S THE RISK YOU RUN 
WHEN YOU FOLLOW YOUR HEART 
FEELS LIKE I'M SWIMMING AGAINST THE TIDE 
GOING NOWHERE 

IF I COULD MAKE IT ACROSS THE WATER 
IF I COULD MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE 
IF I COULD GET TO THE PLACE KEEPING THE FAITH 
LONG AFTER THE TEARS HAVE BEEN CRIED 

FEELS LIKE I'M SWIMMING AGAINST THE TIDE 
HOW DO I GET THROUGH THESE LONELY NIGHTS 
IT'S OVERWHELMING ME 
FEELS LIKE IT'S DROWNING ME 
GOT TO GET OVER THIS SOMEHOW 

IF I COULD MAKE IT ACROSS THE WATER 
IF I COULD MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE 
IF I COULD GET TO THE PLACE KEEPING THE FAITH 
LONG AFTER THE TEARS HAVE BEEN CRIED 

I'M GONNA MAKE IT ACROSS THE WATER 
I'M GONNA MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE 
I'M GONNA GET TO THE PLACE WHERE I KNOW I'LL BE SAFE 
IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY 
HOW MANY TEARS HAVE BEEN CRIED 
IT WON'T MATTER, NO 
HOW MANY TEARS HAVE BEEN CRIED 
I'M GONNA MAKE IT 'CROSS THAT WATER!
