About This Album

Lyrics

  • All You Need Is Now

    It's all up to you now find yourself in the moment
    go directly to the voodoo now the channel is open

    lose your head lose control
    you come on delicate and fine like a diamond in the mind
    woah, yeah, when you move into the light you're the greatest thing alive
    woah... and you

    SWAY in the moon the way you did when you were younger
    and we told everybody all you need is now
    STAY with the music let it play a little longer
    you don't need anybody all you need is now

    Everybody's gunning for the VIP section
    but you're better up and running in another direction

    with your bones in the thrall
    throw a shadow on the vine, bat your lashes let it shine
    woah, yeah, every moment that arrives you're the greatest thing alive
    woah... and you

    SWAY in the moon the way you did when you were younger
    and we told everybody all you need is now
    STAY with the music let it play a little longer
    you don't need anybody all you need is now

    all you need, all you need is now
    all you need, all you need is now
    all you need, all you need is now

    ... and we will
    SWAY in the moon the way we did when we were younger (when we were younger)
    when we told everybody all you need is now
    STAY with the music let it play a little longer (a little longer)
    you don't need anybody all you need is now

    all you need, all you need is now
    all you need, all you need is now
    all you need, all you need is now
    all you need, all you need is now

  • I'm driving up the autobahn
    losing my way as the night gets long
    the headlights shining in my face
    scream out the danger of this place

    and now there's no way home this love affair is ended
    I should have known when I bought into the dream
    so like your solid soul to leave me lost and stranded
    I blame myself and I blame the machines

    I'm flying blind I'm speeding through
    I hate to think I've been fooled by you
    an interactive nightmare show
    which never ends, it just goes on and on and on and on

    and now there's no way home this love affair is ended
    I should have known when I bought into the dream
    so like your solid soul to leave me lost and stranded
    I blame myself and I blame the machines

    and now turn left
    I have control
    you are not required
    to think at all
    everything we hear (goes on and on)
    everything we see,
    everything we love (goes on and on)
    everything we feel,
    everything we want, (goes on and on)
    everything we do, (and on)
    everywhere we go (and on)
    everything we know (and on)

    and now there's no way home this love affair is ended
    I should have known when I bought into the dream
    so like your solid soul to leave me lost and stranded
    I blame myself and I blame the machines

    oo-oh oo-oh -I blame the machines
    oo-oh oo-oh -blame the machines
    repeat...

  • To the voyeur, seated in a darkened room.
    Do you thrill when the green light starts pulsing?
    Paranoia, the only valid point of view.
    if you know what I'm saying.

    I'm not alone, being followed
    someone always watching what we do
    never alone, but I'm in the shadows
    I dream things I don't want you to know

    something shifting between the sirens and the glow
    of red lights and the blue slowly turning
    the fog is lifting
    a silhouette begins the show
    then the moment is stolen

    I'm not alone, being followed
    someone always watching what we do
    never alone, I'm in the shadows
    I dream things I don't want you to know

    In this chamber lit by scandal
    you're the bullet in the barrel
    you're the last thing as I'm falling
    bloody roaring still I'm calling out
    I'm calling out

    I'm not alone, being followed
    never alone, I'm being followed
    I'm not alone, being followed
    never alone, I'm being followed

  • So come the evening
    I'm out on the dunes
    looking for a token
    something to prove
    all I remember
    is more than a flame
    in my fantasy fire

    whatever I've done to receive
    whatever I need to redeem
    whatever you say
    even if I wait a lifetime

    I know, I swear, if you leave a light on, if you leave a light on
    for me
    I'll come there
    You can leave a light on for me

    In comes the morning
    I'm stood in my track
    looking at the reasons
    for me to head back
    so unexpected
    the kindness you've shown
    that I will not forget it

    whatever I've done to receive
    whatever I need to redeem
    whatever you say
    even if I wait a lifetime

    I know, I swear, if you leave a light on, if you leave a light on
    for me
    I'll come there
    You can leave a light on for me

    you breathe the will into the weak
    and coax the cage bird to fly free
    you ease the lost cause out of me
    with your sweet hand to bring me home
    I'm not alone

    I know, I swear, if you leave a light on, if you leave a light on
    for me,
    I'll come there
    You can leave a light on for me

    I know, I swear, if you leave a light on, if you leave a light on
    for me,
    I'll come there
    You can leave a light on for me

  • (People say you've been around
    How 'bout you and me get down?
    How 'bout you and me get down?
    Babe I know you've been around
    Unmake your bed
    Don't think about what lies ahead
    Don't you want to be misled?
    Don't you want to be misled?)

    Fame, seems a far off day
    when enough was never enough
    vain, how I played my hand
    one more reckless man in the rough

    strange, how we explain the story that we've lived through
    change, my karma train, the person I can be for you is...

    SAFE - safe in the heat of the moment -
    a stillness that comes to me
    when I'm close to you
    SAFE - safe at the speed of atonement -
    a feeling that runs so deep
    that it scares me too

    dazed by my own escape
    from the single state I was used to
    face my catch-22
    can I stay this way if I choose to

    wrong, to be so contained now I can't explain what is happening
    strong, is the human chain, as it pulls me through, what I bring to you is...

    SAFE - safe in the heat of the moment -
    a stillness that comes to me
    when I'm close to you
    SAFE - safe at the speed of atonement -
    a feeling that runs so deep
    that it scares me too

    SAFE - safe in the heat of the moment -
    a stillness that comes to me
    when I'm close to you
    SAFE - safe at the speed of atonement -
    a feeling that runs so deep
    that it scares me too

    Fame, seems a far off day
    when enough was never enough
    vain, how I played my hand
    one more reckless man in the rough

    (Hook a finger wink an eye
    Caresses running up your thigh
    Scratch my surface dig in deep
    There's always secrets left to keep
    Safe not sound who made these rules
    Crowd control for enlightened fools
    So come on boy let's change the pace
    Come feel the chill of my embrace
    People say you've been around
    How 'bout you and me get down?
    How 'bout you and me get down?
    Babe I know you've been around
    Unmake your bed
    Don't think about what lies ahead
    Don't you want to be misled?
    Don't you want to be misled?)

    SAFE - safe in the heat of the moment -
    a stillness that comes to me
    when I'm close to you
    SAFE - safe at the speed of atonement -
    a feeling that runs so deep
    that it scares me too

    SAFE - safe in the heat of the moment -
    a stillness that comes to me
    when I'm close to you
    SAFE - safe at the speed of atonement -
    a feeling that runs so deep
    that it scares me too

  • I came by invitation to general Chelsea mayhem
    then going on to somewhere, yes I was going somewhere
    a single random meeting with your eyes and I am beaten
    and now I'm going nowhere, I know I'm going nowhere

    with all the voices in my head
    the clever words I never said
    of all the things to happen

    in a girl panic, that's driving naked through my mind
    it's a crush panic, she's got me atomized

    you beg me to get closer, dress falling off your shoulder
    then heat is wrapping round us, this city strapped around us
    coz now I sense your mission is my coming demolition
    and you just hold me under, I know I'm going under

    with all the voices in my head
    the clever words I never said
    and you just let it happen

    in a girl panic, that's driving naked through my mind
    it's a crush panic, she's got me atomized
    in a girl panic, the midnight traffic in her eyes
    like a hypnotic, and I am mesmerized

    you know you know I want you; I know you know I want you

    with all the voices in my head
    the clever words I never said
    and you just let it happen

    in a girl panic, that's driving naked through my mind
    it's a crush panic, she's got me atomized
    in a girl panic, the midnight traffic in her eyes
    like a hypnotic, and I am mesmerized

    in a girl panic
    a crush panic
    she's a hypnotic
    it's a girl panic !

  • Stay with the music
    Let it play a little longer
    All you need is now

  • Do you know where we are?
    I'm longing for the dark
    of our nocturnal life
    it begins and ends with you
    don't spill my secret

    you were once running wild hiding in the morning mist
    game demands I make you mine
    I thought that I could resist but the leopard in you
    silently preyed on me

    I made my way back home
    (did you follow her?)
    I handled her with care
    (were you in control?)
    so elegant and sleek
    (were you not afraid?)
    I need her to be near
    (does she belong to you?)
    don't spill my secret

    you were once running wild hiding in the morning mist
    game demands I make you mine
    thought that I could resist but the leopard in you
    silently preyed on me

    deserted by my friends
    (don't they understand?)
    she's so much more than them
    (how could they compare?)
    so now she's just for me
    (no one else can see)
    I watch her while she sleeps
    (be sure she dreams of you)
    don't spill my secret

    (It's been quite a while)
    since we were last outside
    (and do you miss the chase?)
    now that we've both been tamed
    (inside this gilded cage)
    prisoners of our thoughts
    (you saved me from myself)
    don't spill my secret

  • Selling exes down the river
    every Katie's got her price
    and the details make you shiver
    but it's hard to escape when your head is stuck in vice
    because nothing matters in the self obsession age
    where they dare you not to notice
    but it's everywhere in shocking colour on the page
    in the magazine
    staring out at me
    out of my TV
    other people's lives
    pixelated lives
    just like yours and mine

    every weekend I bear witness
    to the social suicides
    to the thief who stayed for breakfast
    to the poster child screwing everybody's wife
    yeah it's just a story but it keeps me hanging on
    for the needy soul, the glory hole confessional
    I've got to see what's going down
    in the magazine
    staring out at me
    out of my TV
    other people's lives
    pixelated lives
    just like yours and mine

    read the headlines... hear the sirens
    I'm re-united... out of rehab... again

    it's everywhere in shocking colour on the page
    in the magazine
    staring out at me
    out of my TV
    other people's lives
    pixelated lives
    just like yours and mine

    Repeat...

  • Across the sky a jet-trail following
    the wish that I was on that plane
    on my way to some far destination, undiscovered never mentioned
    sipping on the high of expectation, I awaken to the shade

    maybe it's a rained out town one you want to leave behind
    when a winter's on the ground, if you ever wonder?

    we believe, in the cold grey light we dream
    there's a place for us... Mediterranea
    yes we believe, where the white sands touch the sea
    there's a space for us... Mediterrenea

    I'm trading air for touchdown ecstasy
    arriving there in a wave of heat
    9am: the beach - tequila mayhem, sum of all suburban daydreams
    waiting for a look, the invitation, I awaken to the shade

    maybe it's a rained out town, one you want to leave behind
    when a winter's on the ground, if you ever wonder

    we believe, in the cold grey light we dream
    there's a place for us... Mediterranea
    yes we believe, where the white sands touch the sea
    there's a space for us... Mediterranea

    oh imagine... summer fashion
    see yourself in an old port town
    let the sun shine out of your mind
    a bed of light to lay you down

    we believe, in the cold grey light we dream
    there's a place for us... Mediterranea
    yes we believe, where the white sands touch the sea
    there's a space for us... Mediterranea
    and we believe
    yes we believe
    there's a place for us... Mediterranea

  • Here I go again
    I must have flowers in my brain
    the same mistake I've made before
    but I'm a hostage
    to that face of yours
    lay me on your bed
    I watch you smoke my cigarette
    I wish you knew what's in my head
    I could be more than just a friend
    too bad you're so beautiful and so complicated
    I may be a deluded fool but still fascinated
    too bad you're so beautiful when I'm king of nothing
    this can only go one way...

    ice queen on top of a mountain
    give me the freeze, minus 20 and counting
    my lunar dreams how do I stop them?
    but it's not your problem
    when you're above it all
    lay me on your bed
    I want to stroke your sleepy head
    I wish that I was you instead
    of being just your weekday friend
    too bad you're so beautiful and so complicated
    I may be a deluded fool but still fascinated
    too bad you're so beautiful when I'm king of nothing
    this can only go one way

    King of nowhere - speaks another line
    in the low light I'm here to entertain
    when it starts to rain I'm a lucky man

    too bad you're so beautiful and so complicated
    I may be a deluded fool but still fascinated
    too bad you're so beautiful when I'm king of nothing
    but this can only go one way ah ah

    too bad you're so, it's too bad you're so oh oh oh oh
    beautiful hmm hmm, beautiful, it's too bad, just too bad, it's too bad, beautiful, it's too bad, just too bad, it's too bad.

  • At the door blowing a kiss she's
    careful not to wake her sister
    knowing that she will be missed
    it feels a little bad girl

    on the corner engine running
    taxi driver sees her coming
    chilly in the morning sun
    she seems a little sad

    say goodbye, she's not afraid of leaving
    no-one by her side, nothing to hang on
    wave goodbye, to everything familiar
    there's a world to find, runway runaway just run away

    looking back she sees the pattern
    hidden princess in the attic
    realise this picture that
    is more than she will hope for

    happy when her heart is jumping
    desperately seeking something
    trying to be strong enough
    to choose another road

    say goodbye, she's not afraid of leaving
    no-one by her side, nothing to hang on
    wave goodbye, to everything familiar
    there's a world to find, runway runaway just run away
    runway runaway just run away
    runway runaway...run away
    runway runaway just run away

  • a stormy summer
    is rolling closer
    lighting up this holy smoker
    and if this drinking
    could ease the thinking
    I toast to my home truth with this glass

    all rise you promises broken
    call my lovers by their names
    lost hearts and words that are spoken to the wind
    which blows before the rain

    little pin-pricks
    and how my ears bleed
    on the bomb ticks that is my heartbeat
    in every life-flash
    in every car crash
    I hear the silence waiting to fall

    all rise you promises broken
    call my lovers by their names
    lost hearts and words that are spoken to the wind
    which blows before the rain

    for all I carry
    are murdered secrets
    the price of my blue star-eyed weakness
    and so we travel
    and we unravel
    towards the place where all loose ends go

    all rise you promises broken
    call my lovers by their names
    lost hearts and words that are spoken to the wind
    which blows before the rain

  • too close to the sun
    tell-tale light in the eyes
    slip into your pain … painkiller heels comatose
    mighty ah high … times … ah high

    you're looking out for something - some escape from
    the antique dark of nothing new - automatic sky
    out where the cupids dare to climb - soon these pretty feathers burn
    as you' ll discover when you fly too close to the sun
    too close to the sun

    stay while you're by
    back for a night not back for long
    salon … it's unfolding by the time we realise
    ah high

    still looking out for something - some escape from
    the antique dark of nothing new - automatic sky
    out where the cupids dare to climb - soon these pretty feathers burn
    as you' ll discover when you fly too close to the sun

    too close to the sun

    are you flying too close to the sun?

  • what were the chances for me
    when I spoke to her last night?
    what were the chances I'd be
    here lying by her side?
    why does it looks so risky
    hiding in the morning light?
    now as the memory hits me
    right between the eyes
    strange nobody else can hear those fingers
    tapping onat the glassdoor
    with reviews of early summer nerves

    welcome to Miss Adventure
    oh she is a slippery slope
    welcome to glamour central
    where I'm hanging on a rope
    who exactly am I trying to fool
    with all those fancy words?
    just a case of early summer nerves

    MID

    this won't get me out of it
    but finally I understand
    you've got to love those early summer nerves

  • you can call me wrong
    you can put me straight
