There’s a man alone in the distance An alien dream in his head The sand creeping on with persistence A clue to the things that were said Wind can move a desert Water digs a rut in the earth Space and time are related And man looks forward to rebirth There’s a woman on a plane to Chicago Got carry on baggage in her head And speed lifts the plane and its cargo A clue to the life that she’s led Wind can move the desert Water digs a rut in the earth Space and time are related And man looks forward to rebirth No water when the well runs dry Got to make some other plans What you see and hear you can rely And there’s power in your hands There’s a man alone in the distance An alien dream in his head The sand creeping on with persistence A clue to the things that were said … oh yeah Wind can move a desert Water digs a rut in the earth Space and time are related And man looks forward to rebirth Wind can move a desert Water digs a rut in the earth Space and time are related And man looks forward to rebirth

So Close 03:41
We get so close There's no one else around Walking down a busy street In the middle of a town … So close I can only see your eyes Though other people come and go We'll never say goodbye We've found something real We never need to discuss We talk and chat, we don't let on What only touches us … So close We play our secret game No matter what they say 'bout us We'll always feel the same … So close I can only see your eyes Though other people come and go We'll never say goodbye We live a life inside A world we've made for us We understand that we're the ones The only ones we trust And it’s you and me When I’m feeling down You get me hot when I’m feeling cold And I dream of you when you’re not around Only you can satisfy my soul … So close We play our secret game No matter what they say 'bout us We'll always feel the same ... So close I can only see your eyes Though other people come and go We'll never say goodbye We've found something real We never need to discuss We talk and chat, we don't let on What only touches us ... So close There's no one else around Walking down a busy street In the middle of the town So close … we get so close Walking down a busy street In the middle of a town Walking down a busy street In the middle of a town So close … we get so close Walking down a busy street In the middle of a town

Payback II 03:36
You’re talking all the time Saying nothing new Using new technology ‘Cause it’s all about the new you You wheel and deal in cash In a brand new Merc SL You live your life inside What you know you can buy or sell There’s more to life than what you find ‘Cause freedom is a state of mind You want a place in history But the payback is a mystery Playing with your mind But you don’t seem to care The weight of the world don’t play on you Just as long as you get your share There’s more to life than what you find ‘Cause freedom is a state of mind You want the good life It makes you feel good The more you get now The more you want to have if you only could You look around you With eyes half closed You see your saviour He ain’t gonna help ‘cause he’s clearly indisposed There’s more to life than what you find ‘Cause freedom is a state of mind You want a place in history But the payback is a mystery A house is not a home Until you’ve paid the loan You try to live a life of ease But you can’t get off the phone You want a place in history But the payback is a mystery You want a place in history But the payback is a mystery

I'm making up some plans for you baby ‘Cause only the best will do for you I've seen the brightest star in the world It's shining every night and every day I won’t let this thing fade away There's so much more to love than words can say You can understand how I feel I'm not in this deal on my own You been somewhere else in this universe Waiting like a raindrop to quench my thirst I won’t let this thing fade away There's so much more to love than words can say I've been waiting Waiting for you I've been waiting Waiting for you I'm making up some plans for you baby ‘Cause only the best will do for you I've seen the brightest star in the world It's shining every night and every day I won’t let this thing fade away There's so much more to love than words can say I've been waiting Waiting for you I've been waiting Waiting for you I've been waiting Waiting for you

Closer 04:02
It won’t take long to see inside To find the love you hide Got to strip that dark veneer So what I see is clear Yeah …. It’s only love Part of the game I want to get closer I don’t care how long might take To feel the love you make I’ll find a way to reach inside Undo the knots that you tied You want to show me your tattoo Of a bird in flight You tell me what I want to hear Your words remain so clear Yeah …. It’s only love Part of the game I want to get closer It’s written in the way you smile That makes my life worthwhile When you look across at me My beating heart flies free Yeah …. It’s only love Part of the game I want to get closer I want to get closer Closer I want to get closer

Got to Go 04:04
Sitting on the bed What was said still in my head Now we’re both feeling blue We’ve seen what’s gone before It’s made us not so sure But we know what to do We’re gonna live tomorrow Though we cry today We're sleeping alone We're never off the phone But we talk apart Leaving is hard You leave a lot behind To make a new start We’re gonna live tomorrow Though we cry today We’re gonna live tomorrow Though we cry today Living in a dream Denies reality We’ve got to go Got to be free Tonight We’ve got to go We need to be free We’ve got to go Got to be free We’re gonna live tomorrow Though we cry today We’re gonna live tomorrow Even though we cry today Living in a dream Denies reality We’ve got to go Got to be free Tonight Tonight … Tonight … Tonight …

Say Goodbye 05:20
When the sun is high They seek the shelter of the shade Kids run and hide and play They have no cause to be afraid The sea has been their friend They dance and sing their happy song They don’t know what the future holds They only know where they belong They know it in their hearts The ocean does not fight It gives them what they need They wake up everyday And wade along the shore With hope and faith they pray That they won’t ever … have to say … say goodbye They look up and see the stars That shine so brightly in their eyes They smile with wonder at the sky But waves below hide desperate cries Now there’s tension in their days They don’t know where their future lies They know they have to change their ways It’s written in their children’s eyes They know it in their hearts The ocean does not fight It gives them what they need In the middle of the night The tide begins to turn With hope and faith they pray That they won’t ever … have to say … say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Don’t want to leave my home Don’t want to say goodbye I don’t want to leave my friends But I know I’ve got to … say goodbye Say goodbye Gonna miss my friends, Miss my home I don’t want to have to … say goodbye We don’t want to say … say goodbye They didn’t want to have to leave It’s goodbye to grass and trees They’re climate refugees They know there’s no reprieve Say goodbye Don’t want to say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye

Waiting for the rain
 To splash into my eyes Waiting for the sun
 To light the darkened skies There’s nothing in the world That feels so real Waiting for the dawn
 When darkness turns to light I live inside an open box That makes me feel so free But what I really need to do is find reality Waiting for the day
 When your smile lights up the night Laughing at the rain
 That falls and shines in the night Looking for a way
 To see inside your mind Diamonds in your eyes Are all I can find I live inside an open box That makes me feel so free But what I really need to do is find reality Waiting for the rain
 To splash into my eyes
 Waiting for the sun
 To shine a light on all their lies

Every night you lay down And leave the world behind Thinking of a way To make your dreams come true someday We enter this world on our own But need someone on the way A signpost gives directions When where to go is unclear But waiting for a sign Can leave you on the borderline We enter this world on our own But need someone on the way Leave the rest behind Don't look back it's alright You need someone to fill the void Yeah … you know how it works Got to be someone special to turn on the light Got to be someone special to turn on the light In time we make a difference Though it seems we’re not in control In life we act out parts Plays need someone in the title role We enter this world on our own But need someone on the way Got to live a life outside ‘Cause living a life inside Only keeps you safe From what you need To see what's real for you Leave the rest behind Don't look back it's alright You need someone to fill the void Yeah … you know how it works Got to be someone special to turn on the light Got to be someone special to turn on the light Someone special to turn on the light … turn on the light

Whose World 03:22
It don’t matter what you play Don’t want to censor what you say
 I’m ok with what you do I hope the same applies to you Some people want to break away Draw a line with a different view They’re intent to paint the world blue But whose world is it anyway? The way it goes when things are fine When all that matters is ‘what’s mine’ The way it goes when things get tough Till we say we’ve had enough Some people want to break away Draw a line with a different view They’re intent to paint the world blue But whose world is it anyway? I look east and then I look to the west I see people laugh and see them cry There’s no denying that some are repressed A man looks back I see a tear in his eye Some people want to break away Draw a line with a different view They’re intent to paint the world blue But whose world is it anyway? It don’t matter what you play Don’t want to censor what you say
 I’m ok with what you do I hope the same applies to you Some people want to break away Draw a line with a different view Intent to paint the world blue But whose world is it anyway?
