"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

"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

"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

"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

"Verisimilitude"

I've got a pocketful of words in my brain
I pull something out when I think I should
I feel like I'm going insane
I'm not I just said it cos I thought I would
I always feel the need to profane
I've always said fuck when I thought I could
To me this seems so inane

I don't need an attitude
Rebellion is a platitude
I only hope the verse is good
I hate verisimilitude

I've got a reason to think of your name
I always feel good when I look at you
I never feel the need to defame
Irony is something I mistook
In you I know our needs are the same
I'm thankful for not overlooking you
Still I need to declaim

I don't need an attitude
Rebellion is a platitude
I only hope the verse is good
I hate verisimilitude

I don't need an attitude
Rebellion is a platitude
I only hope the verse is good
I hate verisimilitude

I've got a pocketful of words in my brain
I'll try to find something I can give to you
I feel like I'm going insane
I know I'll calm down when I live with you

You always feel the need to profane
I guess that's something I'll forgive of you
Still I need to explain

I don't need an attitude
Rebellion is a platitude
I only hope the verse is good
I hate verisimilitude

I don't need an attitude
Rebellion is a platitude
I only hope the verse is good
I hate verisimilitude

"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]

"Tears"

There's no future so don't fake it
Don't know if you're going to make it
When everything becomes unclear

You're tired and you're broken
You're true feelings remain unspoken
You couldn't hide behind your name

You're excited and ecstatic
You're exit was so dramatic
When all your passion disappeared

You're no sucker so don't blow it
You're succeeding but you don't know it
You've got to turn yourself around


"Discolite"

Could you light me up on what I'm doing
And waken up the sleeping words inside my head

The morning that surrounds you
The feelings that have found you
Can grow every world you'll ever need

If you think there's a better place to see
Get your mind made up on me
Got another thing to be?

Ooo ooo...

Ahhhh....
Ahhhh....
Ahhhh....
Ahhhh....

When the morning fades too soon
Is there life in this cartoon?
Woke up in a place where I belong
The endless fights
The disco lights

If you think there's a better place to see
Get your mind made up on me
Got another thing to be?

Ooo ooo...

Ahhhh....
Ahhhh....
Ahhhh....
Ahhhh....

When the DJ plays your tune
There's a light inside your moon
If the takes don't take you
And the breaks don't brake you
Get the train on time
I've waited much too long

If you think there's a better place to see
Get your mind made up on me
Got another thing to be?

Ooo ooo...

If you think (ooo ooo)
If you think (ooo ooo)
If you think (ooo ooo)
If you think (ooo ooo)

"Say No"

Say no
I know you're gonna stay
With more than one way
To say no

Don't go
I know you're here today
You never knew the way
To say no

I know
I never got it wrong
With only this song
To say no

You know
The way we've been taught
With only one thought
To say no

I know
You never had a lot
But never had a thought
To say no

Don't go
Now you don't belong
With only this song
To say no

I'll go
Anywhere at all
And wait for you to call
To say no

We'll know
The things you can't recall
And life'll seem too small
To say no

I know
I knew it all along
With only one song
To say no

"Going Places"

Bound in motion
Found my headwind was blowing fine
I've requested the stars to shine
For words that no longer rhyme

Drank the ocean
Moved my feet to a different sound
Tried to find what was left unfound
It's funny how it lets you down

Just kick my feet off the ground, I'll embrace the sky
I've got no beat in time, got no place in line

Got the notion
That this rain's never gonna last
'Cos the scene always moves too fast
I've read all about the past

Just kick my feet off the ground, I'll embrace the sky
I've got no beat in time, got no place in line

Just kick my feet off the ground, I'll embrace the sky
I've got no beat in time, got no place in line
Just kick my feet off the ground, I'll embrace the sky
I've got no beat in time, got no place in line

"I'll Make It Clear"

They think they know us
But they don't know us
In love there's nothing
That they can show us anymore
It's never been like this before

I'll make it clear
I love you dear

Just something simple
And unaffected
We're getting closer
Than we expected to be
It's me for you and you for me

I'll make it clear
I love you dear

Dear...
Dear...

Your life was darker
And I think you lost your way
Stumbled into your life
To brush the past away

I'll make it clear
I love you dear

Dear...
Dear...
Dear...
Dear...

"I Gotta Know"

I got a feeling I know what I mean
Feel like deceiving is almost obscene
Always believing I'll always believe

I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know

I got a feeling I know what I need
Always believing I gotta succeed
Always believing I'll always believe

I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know

[SOLO]

I gotta know
I gotta know

I got a feeling I know it's naive
Feel like I'm stealing from what I perceive
Always believing I'll always believe

I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know

[SOLO]

I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know
I gotta know

"Hardcore / Ballad"

You're my friend but that's not all
You're way above them all
Staying here, staying dear
And love is easy to define
Mine is yours as yours is mine
Through the pain through the pain
