"The Concept"

She wears denim wherever she goes
Says she's gonna get some records by the Status Quo
Oh yeah... Oh yeah...

Still she won't be forced against her will
Says she don't do drugs but she does the pill
Oh yeah... Oh yeah...

I didn't want to hurt you oh yeah...
I didn't want to hurt you oh yeah...

Says she likes my hair 'cause it's down my back
Says she likes the group 'cause we pull in the slack
Oh yeah... Oh yeah...

When she's at the gig she takes her car
And she drive us home if it is in a bar
Oh yeah... Oh yeah...

I didn't want to hurt you oh yeah...
I didn't want to hurt you oh yeah...

[Solo]

I didn't want to hurt you oh yeah...
I didn't want to hurt you oh yeah...

[Pause]

Aaaah... Aaaah... Aaaah...



"Ain't That Enough"

If you can I wish you would
Only if you feel you should
Bring your loving over
All adds up with circumstance
All stood up with taking stands
Bring your loving over

Highlights glisten
Silence listens
Days that found you
Embrace that found you

Here is a sunrise Aint that enough
True as a clear sky, ain't that enough
Toy town feelings here to remind you
Summers in the city do what you gotta do

Time can only make demands
Fill it up with grains of sand
Bring your loving over
Highlights glisten
Silence listens
Days that found you
Embrace that found you

Here is a sunrise Aint that enough
True as a clear sky, ain't that enough
Toy town feelings here to remind you
Summers in the city do what you gotta do
Toy town feelings whose gonna argue
Summers in the city Summers in the city


"The World'll Be OK"

I talk to you by satellite
I hope before they reach you,space will make the words sound right
I hear your voice come out the phone
I'd like both ears to hear you speak when I'm not on my own
And I forget that I'm not set in stone

I don't know where to draw the line
The flat horizon stretches out between your world and mine
And where I go will follow no design

When I feel like the world is lonely
You can heal me when you say
That you know the world'll be Ok

My jaded sense taste the view
The city eye pollutes you,makes you yearn for something new
I waste my time with magazine
The pages live life for you when your needs don't match your means
But your cares will suppress my selfish genes.

When I feel like the world is lonely
You can heal me when you say
That you know the world'll be Ok

The words we say won't go away
The meaning hides inside them,tries to look the other way
And I'll forget the words I meant to say

When I feel like the world is lonely
You can heal me when you say
That you know the world'll be Ok

I know the world'll be Ok
I know the world'll be Ok
I know the world'll be Ok.....


"Everything Flows"

See you get older every year
But you don't change
Or I don't notice you changing
I think about it every day
But only for a little while
And then a feeling

I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know
I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know

The wind's blowing in my face
Lately found it hard to keep the pace
And I'm looking for a place to go
But only for a little while
And then a feeling

I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know
I'll never know which way to flow
Set a course that I don't know



"Star Sign"

Hey there's a horseshoe on my door, big deal.
And say there's a black cat on the floor, big deal.

If these things make your day
Well if these things change your day

Well do you know where you belong?
And is your star sign ever wrong?

If these things change your day,
Well if these things make your day
Seen it all before, seen it all before...
In a time these things will change

Hey there's a side of me unknown, big deal.
And say, should this unknown force be shown, big deal.

If these thoughts make your day
Well if these thoughts change your day
Seen it all before, seen it all before
Given time these things will change
Seen it all before, seen it all before
Given time these things will change.

If these things change your day
Well if this song makes your day.
Seen it all before, seen it all before
Given time these things will change
Seen it all before, seen it all before
Given time these things will change.



"Mellow Doubt"

It gives me pain, when I think of you
And the things together that we'll never do
At first it's code, and then it's hot
Tried to be someone that I know I'm not

I'm in trouble, and I know it
How I'm feeling, I can't show it
But these feelings, don't go away

I remember you, lines on your face.
Sharing a moment in the perfect place.
I'm deep in your eyes, and inside your head.
And I try to reach you, when I'm in my bed.

I'm in trouble, and I know it
How I'm feeling, I can't show it
But these feelings, don't go away

[Whistling solo]

There is no choice, in what I must do.
Nothing is greater than to be with you.

I'm in trouble, and I know it
How I'm feeling, I can't show it
But these feelings, don't go away



"I Need Direction"

I used to feel fine
you were to be mine
I need direction
to take me to you

I've asked the sunshine
shadowed the skyline
I need direction
to take me to you

I get brainwaves
I get visions
slow reaction
superstition

I need the ways and means to get through
I need an open heart to look to
nobody sees the same way I do
I need direction to get through

followed the ley lines
the faded out road signs
I need direction
to take me to you

I get spellbound
I get visions
slow advances
indecision

I need the ways and means to get through
I need an open heart to look to
nobody sees the same way I do
I need direction to get through

Honest I'd feel fine
if you were to be mine
I need direction to take me to you



"About You"

I always knew the way about you
I always knew the way about you

Always on my mind
Always take my time
Take my time and I can find my way

I never took the time to see through
I always knew the way about you

Always on my mind
Always take my time
Take my time and I can find my way

Always on my mind
Always take my time
Take my time and I can find my way

[Break/Solo]

Always on my mind
Always take my time
Take my time and I can find my way

Always on my mind
Always take my time
Take my time and I can find my way
Take my time and I can find my way
Take my time and I can find my way



"What You Do To Me"

What you do to me...
I know, I can't believe
There's something about you
Got me down on my knees.

What you do to me...
I know, I can't believe
There's something about you
Got me down on my knees.

What you do to me...
What you do to me...
What you do to me...
What you do to me...

What you do to me...
I know, I can't believe
There's something about you
Got me down on my knees.

What you do to me...
I know, I can't believe
There's something about you
Got me down on my knees.

What you do to me...
What you do to me...
What you do to me...
What you do to me...

What you do to me...
What you do to me...
What you do to me...
What you do to me...



"Empty Space"

Standing motionless beneath the sun
The lights won't change and the engine burns
Beyond there lies a steady pace
That's where i look to
Eye on the clock
And tomorrow nears
Do I patiently wait
Thrugh the passing years?

Every day is like empty space
Freedom lied
It haunts this place
Although the signs say less is more
I still hope for your fair rays of light
Upon my door

Thrugh the confines of the city scape
I can see the future taking shape
Watching aircraft span the evening sky
Like rivers flowing
Making turns for open roads
I've been lost in the spin
Don't know where to begin

Every day is like empty space
Freedom lied
It haunts this place
Although the signs say less is more
I still hope for your fair rays of light
Upon my door

I still hope for your fair radiant light



"Sparky's Dream"

If she lived in space, man
I'd build a plane
Out of luck so beam me up
To hear her talking again

She painted pictures
That never dried
Always tried to keep the feeling alive

Need a crystal ball to see her in the morning
And magic eyes to read between the lines.
I take a wrong direction
From a shooting star
In the love dimension
Fading fast from taking this too far

That summer feeling is gonna fly
Always try and keep the feeling inside

Need a crystal ball to see her in the morning
And magic eyes to read between the lines
I took a wrong direction
From a shooting star
In the love dimension
Fading fast from taking this to far

Need a magic ball to see her in the morning
And crystal eyes to read between the lines
Need a magic ball to see her in the morning
And crystal eyes to read between the lines



"I Don't Want Control Of You"

I don't want control of you
Doesn't matter to me
The very heart and soul of you
Are places I wanna see

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

I don't want a world of pain
Staring at every tear
Don't want this love to stay the same
Growing with every year

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

Tired of situations
That mean nothing to me
You've been an inspirational figure for me

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

I don't want control of you
Doesn't matter to me
I want this love to stay the same
Growing with every year

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace



"Hang On"

Been bought and I've been sold
and I've forgot what I've been told
and now I need someone
Of all the stars I've ever seen
you're the sun

Hang on, hang on
Hang on, hang on
I've not forgotten all the tricks
that you've done
I just need some fun

I'm going underground to reassess
just what I've found
and all that I can do
Been blinded by the light
now I can go with a smile

Hang on, hang on
Hang on, hang on
I've not forgotten all the tricks
that you've done
I just need someone



"Did I Say"

Hey did I say I don't mind if you want to go home
Take me there no you don't have to travel alone
Through the night cross the sea
Going back in time
Here for you now were you waiting for me
Hey did I say that I smiled
When I first heard your name
Fell in love and I still feel the same way now
Far through the night watch
The land fall away from you
Here for you now were you waiting for me
Hey did I say I don't mind if you
Want to go back to the lake
Where you learn't how to swim
With the sun beating down on your back in the morning I'll
Come for you girl are you waiting for me.



"Don't Look Back"

If I could find the words to say
The sun shines in your eyes
So brighten up my city sky

Break out the news, it's back again
The voice that tried to sing
She don't hang on
And hope's never going to teach me

Wake up the story's over
Climb aboard I'm going nowhere

And understand if I must say
I'd give both these wings away
I'd steal a car to drive you home
I don't look back on an empty feeling

Repaint the Blues, my saving grace
Is lost without a trace
The morning sun's a fire in space

She lives in your life everyday
Stretching time to stay
Got my mind set something else so it's hard to see

I don't need a guiding light to lead me in the dark

And understand if I must say
I'd give both these wings away
I'd steal a car to drive you home
I don't look back on an empty feeling

(Don't look back) on an empty feeling
(Don't look back) on an empty feeling
(Don't look back) on an empty feeling
(Don't look back) on an empty feeling

[SOLO]



"Your Love Is The Place Where I Come From"

Your sadness don't lie
Your feelings can't hide
You always know why
But your reasons are sly
You never deny
What you feel inside
I
I Disappear when you're not here
In my life

I can't slip away when I see your face
I lose my confusion
Your Love Is The Place Where I Come From
When I'm on my own I'm lost in space
My freedoms a delusion
Your Love Is The Place Where I Come From

My sadness don't lie
My feelings can't hide
I Just can't deny
What I feel inside

[CHORUS to end]



"Neil Jung"

You had a girlfriend
That wasn't good enough for you
She was younger
But that was old enough you knew

To get undressed for you
Stressed for you
Distorting everything
Became depressed for you

You were changing
Didn't want to stay the same
Re-arranging
Dropped a letter from your name

She'd get uptight with you
Would fight with you
And you would never win
It wasn't right for you

Was going nowhere
Couldn't take the pain and left it there
Was going nowhere
Couldn't take the pain and left it there

Not understanding
Had a different point of view
Tried to reach her
When she moved away from you

She was confusing you
Using you
You couldn't understand
Began amusing you

Was going nowhere
Couldn't take the pain and left it there
Was going nowhere
Couldn't take the pain and left it there

[SOLO]

Was going nowhere
Couldn't take the pain and left it there
Was going nowhere
Couldn't take the pain and left it there
Couldn't take the pain and left it there
Couldn't take the pain and left it there

[SOLO]



"Radio"

I think I'll kill the radio, don't want to hear this song
Can't relate to yesterday, what we did was wrong
yeah...mmm...
But now you lighten up my day with your views
Just out of school and you're "that's so cool"

Baby, justify the reason behind your style
Find a craze that fits and stay there for awhile
Love to hear your song
On the A.M.
On the A.M.
On the A.M. (background)

You can't even get it on
I don't know
what all your chances are
And when I try to trip you up
I'm the one who falls
Did you know when I was young
I'd paint my face with the latest craze

Baby, justify the reason behind your style
Find a craze that fits and stay there for awhile
Love to hear your song
On the radio, on the radio
On the radio, on the radio
You on the radio, on the radio
You on the radio, on the radio



"Dumb Dumb Dumb"

It's been playing on my mind
I don't want to waste your time
and the thought of you is tearing me apart

Had a name but now that's gone
I don't know where I went wrong
now I'm all alone and drifting in the dark

Take me back to what I know
cos I don't know where to go
and I'm finding it so hard to stay in tune

But it's hard to comprehend
getting closer to the end
and I hope that I'll be feeling better soon

Now I'm just a fading light
but I want to feel alright
and I hope that you can help me through the days

And I find it hard to sleep
cos I sold myself so cheap
do you think about me when I go away.



"Planets"

Were going over the country
And into the highlands
To look for a home
Were leaving nothing behind us
And no one will find us
When we're on our own

I feel the planets surround me
They gather round me

We're moving out of the city
We'll pack up the case
And make for the road
Where flowing rivers will bind us
Where shadows will find us
Now we're on our own

I feel the planets surround me
They gather round me

I feel the planets surround me
They gather round me



"My Uptight Life"

The morning sun opens up my eyes
What I see is the same world I know you're seeing
My dreams are real until I realise
Realising's a slow fade from thought to being
The waking world is full of cynics' sighs
Cynicism's a box I don't want to be in
I'll stay in bed until I stabilize

I try to write this song
To move my life along
I know what I dream of
I'll save my life for love

Hidden meanings don't need to hide
When I hide from the world you're the one who'll find me
They don't need screening from the world outside
If the truth's overdue I know you'll remind me
If the truth police are sniffing out a lie
I've done nothing in life I can't put behind me
I'll use my life as an alibi

Meaning is something I got from you
Whenever I lost the plot you knew
What is it I haven't got
When I've got you

Meaning is something I got from you
Whenever I lost the plot you knew
What is it I haven't got
When I've got you

All my life I felt so uptight
Now it's all right.
[repeat to fade]
