Omd - Almost

I'd travel oh so far 
To be where you are 
I'd travel there by car 
To be where you are 
But if I get there I'd find 
That I'd change my mind 
It happens all the time 
To a friend of mine 

Always making statements 
And moving step by step 
Always acting theories 
I will regret 
My only consolation 
In the things that I've done 
Are the people who know me 
And the objects I own 

Happens all the time 
To a friend of mine 
Happens all the time 
To a friend of mine 
Happens all the time 
To a friend of mine 
Happens all the time 
To a friend of mine 
Happens all the time 

Omd - Call My Name

I've seen a new sensation 
I heard you call in pain 
But running round in circles 
Won't make it right again 
The telephone keeps ringing 
Your head is in the sand 
The future is unfolding 
But it's not what you had planned 

No matter what you do 
There's no escape for you 
You say we go too far 
You say I'll take my car 

So it always ends the same 
There's no one else to blame 
But I'd die 
If you would call my name 

Caught between two evils 
You should have stayed at home 
To wish upon and walk upon 
A planet of your own 

No matter what you do 
There's no escape for you 
You say we go too far 
You say I'll take my car 

So it always ends the same 
There's no one else to blame 
But I'd die 
If you would call my name 

Yes I'd die 
If you would call my name 

No matter what you do 
There's no escape for you 
You say we go too far 
You say I'll take my car 

So it always ends the same 
There's no one else to blame 
But I'd die 
If you would call my name 

Oh yes I'd die 
If you would call my name

Omd - Dream Of Me

say it isn't right 
to be alone tonight 
so in love with you 
tell you what I'm gonna 
do about it 

I had an idea 
based on a love theme 
I had an idea 
based on a love theme 

all I ever do 
is what you want me to 
so in love with you 
tell you what I'm gonna 
do about it 

I had an idea 
based on a love theme 
I had an idea 
based on a love theme 

say it isn't right 
to be alone tonight 
so in love with you 
tell you what I'm gonna 
do about it 

I had an idea 
based on a love theme 
I had an idea 
based on a love theme 

Omd - Electricity

Our one source of energy 
The ultimate discovery 
Electric blue for me 
Never more to be free 
Electricity 
Nuclear and HEP 
Carbon fuels from the sea 
Wasted electricity 

Our one source of energy 
Electricity 
All we need to live today 
A gift for man to throw away 
The chance to change has nearly gone 
The alternative is only one 
The final source of energy 
Solar electricity 

Electricity 
Electricity 
Electricity 
Electricity 
Electricity 
E . . .

In all the things we do and know, we really must be told. 

Omd - Georgia

Well 
Here we are again 
Too 
Too good to be friends 

Forever, forever, forever 

Well 
Look at what we've done 
Three 
Threee rolled into one 

Together, together, together 

So! 
How can this be true 
We 
We thought that we knew you 

Forever, forever, forever 

We will watch the morning star 
Rising home over Georgia 
Dancing in the ruins of the western world 
Blindfolds on and we don't care 

Omd - Heaven Is [Live]

heaven is a woman 
dressed in blue 
and heaven is knowing 
someone who is in love with you 
heaven is a television 
left on all day 
and heaven is making love 
and then running away 

heaven is 
heaven is 

heaven is believing 
what your eyes don't see 
and heaven is Christy Canyon 
falling in love with me 
heaven in waking up 
to be a millionaire 
and heaven is spending the whole next day 
just walking on air 

heaven is 
heaven is 
heaven is 
heaven is 

all these things you say and do 
it doesn't mean that much to you 
but all these things you said to me 
the memories won't set me free 
heaven is a dream 
when it won't come true 
and heaven is the sky 
when it's always blue 
heaven is the girl 
with short black hair 
and heaven is a woman 
with enough to spare 

heaven is 
heaven is 
heaven is 
heaven is 

heaven is 
and heaven is taking a holiday 
and heaven is having you here to stay 
and heaven is never ever saying sorry 
and heaven is as easy as abc 
and heaven is your eyes when they're always blue 
and heaven is just right here with you 

heaven is 
heaven is 
heaven is 

Omd - Joan of Arc

A little catholic girl 
Who’s fallen in love 
A face on a page 
A gift from above 

She should have known better 
Than to giver her heart 
She should have known better 
Than to ever part 

Without me 
Without me 

I gave her everything 
That I ever owned 
I think she Understood 
But she never spoke 

She shouldn’t oughta try 
To be that way 
She shouldn’t have to go there 
Ever again 

Without me 
Without me 

Now listen to us good 
And listen well 
Listen to us all 
And everything we tell 

We should have known better 
Than to giver her away 
We should have known better 
To this very day 

Without me 
Without me 

Now listen Joan of Arc 
All you gotta do 
Is say the right words 
And I’ll be coming through 
Hold you in my arms 
And take you 
Right away 

Now she's on her way 
To another land 
We never understood 
Why she gave her hand 

She shouldn't oughta promise 
Because it's just pretend 
I know she doesn't mean it 
And she'll leave again 

Without me 
Without me 
Without me 
Without me 

Omd - Julia's Song

The means to an end 
The sinful distress 
Writing down meaningless words 
Vaguely off hand 
So the rest of the band 
Can learn from the bees and the birds 
Concentrate business man you, 
You haven't got long 
Planets are ruling your hearts 
Stilletos and thighs may be burning your eyes 
But it keeps you from falling apart 

Heavy but generalised 
Sordid and wet 
Someone advised me to die 
Blowing your mind 
'Cause you know what you'll find 
When you're looking for things in the sky 
Under the influence 
Rotting our nerves 
Cutting us off at the mains 
Nearing the end with your grandmother's friend 
It's something to do when it rains 
It's something to do when it rains 
It's something to do when it rains 

Omd - Maid of Orleans

If Joan of Arc. 
Had a heart. 
Would she give it. 
As a gift. 
To such as me. 
Who longs to see. 
How an angel. 
Ought it be. 

Her dream's to give. 
Her heart away. 
Like an orphan on a wave. 
She cared so much. 
She offered up. 
Her body to the grave. 

Omd - Messages

It worries me this kind of thing 
How you hope to live alone 
And occupy your waking hours 
We're taking sides again 
I just wept I couldn't understand 
Why you started this again 

And every day you send me more 
It makes it worse is this a plan of yours 
To ensure I don't forget 
I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all 
But you never send me your address 
And I've, I've kept them anyway 

So don't ask me if I think it's true 
That communication can bring hope to those 
Who have gone their separate ways 
It hardly touched me when it should have then 
But memories are uncertain friends 
When recalled by messages 

Coded messages 
Poison letters 

Omd - Messerschmitt Twins

My mind is made up, I'm changing faster 
Your mind is made up, avoiding worries 
My old image is set to fade away 
Forget the talking 
Forget the actions 
And quiet voices and all that happened 
In just one of hour 
You could knock me down 

The twos are one now 
And ones are fuller 
No longer giving 
No longer taking 
These ways are tried 
They never seem to fail 

And when you're asking 
You sound like telling 
Despite the questions 
You're not receiving 
I can't explain 
Why you disappear 

Your mind is made up 
The time is taken 
You reach decisions 
We can't avoid them 
There's no success 
No matter what we do 

The twos are one now 
And ones are fuller 
No longer giving 
No longer taking 
These ways are tried 
They never seem to fail 
These ways are tried 
They never seem to fail 
These ways are tried 
They never seem to fail 
These ways are tried 

Omd - Mystereality

Mystereality 
It's not the same game anymore 
A-nor the time or the places before 
You don't know, you don't know, you don't know 

If you see me you'll be asking 
It's always take take take take take take take take 
Oh reality don't fool me 
No mistakes this time 

Mystereality 
Well really it's all just promises 
You know how much I hate the unforeseen 
Oh don't you know 

A-never never a regard for the truth 
What's the meaning of that Mister R 
Oh reality don't fool me 
No mistakes this time 

My my reality 
So where did we go wrong 
Have you seen just a-recently 
The lengths to which we've been 

Now you could say that it's time 
Escapes they seldom work 
Oh reality don't fool me 
I count on you to know 

Omd - Of All The Things We've Made

To want this. 
Of everything we’ve made. 
The times it’s worked before. 

Of all the things we’ve said. 
Times that worked before today. 

To want this. 
Of everything we’ve made. 
The times it’s worked before. 

Of all the things we’ve said. 
They've always worked before today. 

Omd - Pandoras Box

Born in Kansas 
On an ordinary plain 
Ran to New York 
But ran away from fame 
Only seventeen 
When all your dreams came true 
But all you wanted 
Was someone to undress you 

And all the stars you kissed 
Could never ease the pain 
Still the grace remains 
And though the face has changed 
You're still the same 

And it's a long long way 
From where you want to be 
And it's a long long way 
But you're to blind to see 

Frame of silence 
Of an innocence divine 
Is a dangerous creation 
When you fail the test of time 

And all the photographs 
of ghosts of long ago 
Still they hurt you so 
Won't let you go 
And you still don't know 

And it's a long long way 
From where you want to be 
An it's a long long way 
But you're to blind to see 

When you look around yourself now 
Do you recognize the girl 
The one who broke a thousand hearts 
Terrified the world 

And all the stars you kissed 
Could never ease the pain 
And if the face has changed 
The grace remains 
And you're still the same 

And it's a long long way 
From where you want to be 
An it's a long long way 
But you're to blind to see... 

Omd - Pretending To See The Future

Avoiding this is like avoiding a plague 
We can't understand the advances we made 
We've tried to resist but it's so hard to say no 
We're pretending to see what the future will hold 
We appear to be in control of our fate 
Just like soldiers believe they're in control of a war 
But its moving so fast we cannot see what we've done 
we're losing our eyes just to say that we've won 

My mind's made up, my heart is broke 
My fortune's is made me and I feel so choked 
I can't understand how we could ever believe 
The things we asked for but never received 

We never understood the times we asked 
The way we wasted all that passed 
This neglect is final it's a stage we must 
Endure to ever hope to see the first 
My mind's made up about the things we did 
We never saw we believed we couldn't say what we missed 

My mind's made up, my heart is broke 
My fortune's is made me and I feel so choked 
I can't understand how we could ever believe 
The things we asked for but never received 

By making noises which we cannot control 
The things we hoped that we'd never forgo 
We appear to be in control of our fate 
Just like soldiers believe they're in control of a war 
But it's moving so fast we cannot see what we've done 
We're losing our eyes just to say that we've won 

My mind's made up, my heart is broke 
My fortune's is made me and I feel so choked 
I can't understand how we could ever believe 
The things we asked for but never received 

Omd - Radio Waves

From the transmitter, to the receiver. 
Across the ether, out of your speaker. 

Radio waves have life! Radio waves have life! 
Machines are living too, they’re working for me and you! 

From the transmitter, to the receiver. 
Across the ether, out of your speaker. 
To the Baltic Fleet and Atlantic Fleet. 
Faster than the breeze over stormy seas. 

Radio waves have life! Radio waves have life! 
Machines are living too, they’re working for me and you! 

Radio waves have life! Radio waves have life! 
Machines are living too, they’re working for me and you! 

Through America to Albania. 
Over Reagan’s head, under Moscow’s bed. 
To the Warsaw Pact and the NATO Pact 
Down this cul de sac, never turning back. 

Radio waves have life! Radio waves have life! 
Machines are living too, they’re working for me and you! 

Omd - Red Frame/White Light

Red frame white light 
Telephone box 
Red on grey 
Six three two three double 'O' three 
Red frame white light 
You have a gray book 
On a metal shelf 
Red frame white light 
Numbered calls 
Selected places 

Red frame white light 
Telephone calls 
Black and white 
Red frame white light 
You have a yellow book 
With averts 
Red frame white light 
There is a black lead to a dial and phone 
Red frame white light 
Six three two three double 'O' three 

Omd - Sailing On The Seven Seas

You say that love will capture me 
But not unless you give it free 
We're sailing on the seven seas 
Sister Ray is on TV 
The light of love that shines so bright 
That the F.B.I won't sleep tonight 

Because I'm so in awe of you 
That I don't know what to do 
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue 

Sick and tired and I don't know why 
Skin and bone won't touch the sky 
Sex and lies can't bring me down 
Because I've sold my soul all over town 

Because I'm so in awe of you 
That I don't know what to do 
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue 

People try and drag us down 
So we learn to swim before we drown 

Because I'm so in awe of you 
That I don't know what to do 
And I'm sailing on the seven seas so blue 

And I’m so in awe of you 
That I don't know what to do 
And I'm sailing on 
The seven seas so blue 

Omd - Sealand

Sealand 
She forgets 
Her friends 

She'll not 
Leave them 
Again 

Mother 
Sister 
And home 

These arms 
Fail you 
So 

Omd - She's Leaving

Everyday 
A new start 
A cheap affair 
A sordid truth 
We'll never learn 
To guide our hearts 
We'll never find 
What we deserve 

She's leaving 
She waited for so long 

She'd pretend 
Thant she cared 
Invent some tale 
Just to gain his heart 
But no more dreams 
She didn't dare 
She washed her hands 
Of this whole affair 

She's leaving 
She waited for so long 

But as she left 
She gave her heart 
Abandoned hope 
And turned for home 
I thought I'd ask 
But then again 
The more we learn 
The less we know 

Omd - Souvenir

It's my direction 
It's my proposal 
It's so hard 
It's leading me astray 

My obsession 
It's my creation 
You'll understand 
It's not important now 

All I need is 
Co-ordination 
I can't imagine 
My destination 
My intention 
Ask my opinion 
But no excuse 
My feelings still remain 

My feelings still remain 

Omd - Talking loud and clear

Talking loud and clear 
saying just what I feel 
lying in the grass 
with the sun on our backs 
it doesn't really matter 
what we do or what we say 
with every little movement 
we give ourselves away 

Opposite and opposite 
decisions are reversed 
facing one another 
with words that couldn't hurt 
with every little word 
you're getting closer to me 
talking loud and clear 
saying just what we feel today 

Talking loud and clear 
saying just what we feel 
lying in the grass 
we've got time on our hands 
body next to body 
with silence all around 
we understand each other 
but didn't make a sound 

Promises and promises 
of vows we shall return 
facing one another 
I thought my heart would burn 
you turn to move away 
but then get closer to me 
talking loud and clear 
saying just what we feel today 

Omd - The Beginning And The End

This is where we start 
This now take our hearts 
Away 

Thus we reach the end 
The beginning and the end 
You see 
I could not try 
And here you and I 
Parting due to me only 
And now 

Omd - The New Stone Age

This is the room 
This is the wall 
This is the body 
I’ve been hoping for 
These are the words 
I’ve been longing just to say 
So this is my goal 
The aim of my life 
This is the feeling 
They warned me about 

Oh my God, 
What have I done this time 
Oh my god, 
What have I done his time 
The things that you’ve done 
You don’t understand 
The feeling the longing 
The failing that’s gone 
(Real heart, stop in 
The arms to be 
Everything shouting 
In the new stone age) 
Of my God, 
What have we done this time 
Oh my God, 
What have we done this time 

(We’ll start living 
In the real stone age) 

Omd - Walking On The Milky Way

When I was only 17 
My head was full of brilliant dreams 
My heart would call and I would gladly go 

At 21 the world was mine 
And I was yours and your divine 
And nothing else would matter to a soul 

I don't believe in destiny 
I don't believe in love 
I don't believe that anything will ever be enough 

(Chorus) 

Oh, man you should have seen us 
On the way to Venus 
Walking on the Milky Way 
It was quite a day 
Walking on the big stuff 
Acting like we're real tough 
Baby we were on our way 
So what you say 

As time goes by reality 
Destroys your hope and dignity 
There's nothing left but shadows on the wall 

But just remember who you are 
And where you've been you've come so far 
And never ever let them see you fall 

I don't believe in miracles 
I don't believe in truth 
I don't believe that anything can recreate your youth 

Chorus 

Bridge 

Walking on the Milky Way 

Chorus (repeat twice)
