Mike & the Mechanics - A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold

I didn't know when I was lucky 
Discontented feeling bad 
Filled with envy 
For possessions other people had 

I found my pride had always hurt me 
Fought the world to gain control 
Not realising 
I was sitting on a beach of gold 

Oh lord I'm a poor man 
With all the riches I can hold 
I'm a beggar 
And I'm sitting on a beach of gold 

The problems I encountered 
Gave me strength helped me sustain 
To know the pleasure 
First I had to cure the pain 

When I was searching for solutions 
I found the answer lay in me 
I'm a drifter 
But I'm drifting on a silver sea 

Oh lord I'm a poor man 
With all the riches I can hold 
I'm a beggar 
And I'm sitting on a beach of gold 

I didn't have courage 
My life was as dark as night 
When alone in the darkness 
I saw the brightest light 
Let the light shine down 

Are you out there now on empty 
Feel you've nothing left to give 
Sick of trying 
Have you lost the will to live? 

Don't be drowning in the shallows 
With the beach so near at hand 
Hear the voice say 
Stand up get up 
And join me on the gilded sand 

Come and join me on the beach 
With all the riches I can hold 
Cause I'm a beggar 
And I'm sitting on a beach of gold 

Oh lord I'm a poor man 
With all the riches I can hold 
I'm a beggar 
I'm sitting on a beach of gold 

My children my salvation 
The father to this man 
They're my teachers 
Playing on the golden sand 

With my family all around me 
I've all the riches I can hold 
I'm a beggar 
Sitting on a beach of gold 

Oh lord I'm a poor man 
With all the riches I can hold 
I'm a beggar 
Sitting on a beach of gold

Mike & the Mechanics - A House Of Many Rooms

There may be some things about me 
Things you don't want to hear 
For the rumours that precede me 
May be very true I fear 

They tell you I will deceive you 
I don't know how to care 
Though my intentions might be good 
There's another darker look beware 

When you walk through the door 
Hang on to your senses 
At best you must assume 
It's a house of many rooms 

Some rooms are filled with pleasure 
Laughter and love and light 
All the things you never see 
I keep under lock and key at night 

When you walk through the door 
Hang on to your senses 
At best you must assume 
It's a house of many rooms 

If you love me in the light 
Love me in the shadow 
I'm afraid you must assume 
It's a house of many rooms 
A house of many rooms 

It's a house that's so unstable 
There are those who recommend 
If they'd the strength and they were able 
It ought to be condemned 
I don't agree but I will warn you 
At best you must assume 
I live in a house of many rooms 

Here I'm in the library 
Trying to understand 
What empowers this behaviour 
Degenerates the man 
The same apartment later 
With the bottle half consumed 
I see a house of many rooms 

In the parlour I'm your father 
Who could ask for more 
The bedroom compromise me 
With your best friend from next door 
In the kitchen being honest 
The lounge a lying tongue 
Locked in the bathroom 
Pretending to be young 

The chapel finds me kneeling 
Praying for my soul 
The painting in the attic 
Can't prevent me growing old 
Help me live forever 
Silent as a tomb 
I live in a house of many rooms 

Join me at the dining table 
Join me at the feast 
Join me in the stable 
I'm laying with the beast 
You're walking in the garden 
Oblivious who'd know? 
I'm in the cellar ready to explode

Mike & the Mechanics - A Time And Place

There's a time and a place 
For you to make your mark and show your face 
There's a place in time 
When you must step outside the line 

So understand what I mean 
There is a time and place for you to have your dream 
But here and now may not be 
The time and place for you and me 
You and me 

It's the finest line 
A missed opportunity or the perfect time 
You must not despair 
You'll recognise it when you're there 

So understand what I mean 
There is a time and place for you to have your dream 
But here and now may not be 
The time and place for you and me 

The time and place for you and me 
There's a time and there's a moment you will see 
Don't lower your expectations 
There are no limitations 
There's a time and place for you and me 

So understand hard as it seems 
There is a time and place for you to have your dreams 
Though here and now may not be 
The time and place for you and me 
You and me

Mike & the Mechanics - All I Need Is A Miracle

I said "Go if you wanna go 
Stay if you wanna stay" 
I didn't care if you hung around me 
I didn't care if you went away 
And I know you were never right 
I'll admit I was never wrong 
I could never make up my mind 
I made it up as I went along 

And though I treated you like a child 
I'm gonna miss you for the rest of my life 

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 

I never had any time 
And I never had any call 
But I went out of my way just to hurt you 
The one I shouldn't hurt at all 
I thought I was being cool 
Yeah, I thought I was being strong 
But it's always the same old story 
You never know what you've got 'til it's gone 

If I ever catch up with you 
I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life 

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 

And if I ever catch up with you 
I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life 

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you 
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

Mike & the Mechanics - Always listen to your heart

Always listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 

Don't make the same mistakes 
The ones that I have made 
The consequence could lead you to an 
early grave 
This is my best advice 
To one so young and brave 
Always listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 

We live in stressful times 
It's hard to make ends meet 
Sometimes it's hard to know 
The way to point your feet 
Life, sometimes devious 
Can fool you with deceit 
Be sure to listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 

It's only just begun 
Your precious life 
One day you'll identify right from wrong 
So don't fail to be strong 

Always listen, listen to your heart 
Always listen, listen to your heart 

Never tell a lie honest from the start 
Just take good care of it 
Don't let it fall apart 
Be sure to listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 

It's only just begun 
Your precious life 
One day you'll identify right from wrong 
So don't fail to be strong 

Always listen, listen to your heart 
Be sure you don't just let it fall apart 

Be sure to listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 
Be sure to listen to your heart 
Be sure to listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 
Always listen, listen to your heart 
Be sure you don't just let it fall apart 
Always listen to your heart 
Be sure to listen to your heart 
Always listen to your heart 
Be sure to listen to your heart

Mike & the Mechanics - Another Cup Of Coffee

And she pours herself another cup of coffee 
As she contemplates the stain across the wall 
and it's in between the cleaning and the washing 
That's when looking back's 
The hardest part of all 

And she always did her best to try and please him 
While he always did his best to make her cry 
And she got down on her knees to stop him leaving 
But he always knew one day he'd say goodbye 

Where are your friends 
Where are your children 
Is this your house 
Is this your home 
Does nothing ever last forever 
Does everybody sleep alone 

And he tears the business tags from his old suitcase 
As he packs away the pieces of his life 
They all love him but they always try to change him 
That's what happens when a girl becomes a wife 

And she pours herself another cup of coffee 
As the pictures leave a clean space on the wall 
and it's in between the leaving and the loving 
That's when looking back's 
The hardest part of all 

Where are your friends 
Where are your children 
Is this your house 
Is this your home 
Does nothing ever last forever 
Does everybody sleep alone 

Don't look back 
Don't give up 
Pour yourself another cup

Mike & the Mechanics - Beautiful Day

Four o'clock in the morning 
waiting for the light 
it's another day dawning 
another day 
a better life. 

Walk out in the morning sun 
I'm always going to be 
with you 

Lay down when your day is done 
I'm always going to be 
with you. 

I don't blame you for crying 
no-one else could see 
but today we'll be flying 
forever you 
forever me. 

Walk out in the morning sun 
I'm always going to be with you 
Lay down when your day is done 
I'm always going to be 
with you 

No doubts now we're free to run 
I'm always going to be 
with you. 

It's a beautiful, 
Beautiful day....

Mike & the Mechanics - Before (The Next Heartache Falls)

A freezing cold December brings a chill into my heart 
And fills me with an emptiness now we're so far apart 
Lost in my confusion now through everything I see 
Oh won't you come on back I need you here with me 

Before 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 

Lonely as the darkness casts a spell upon the night 
I'm past the point of caring if I'm wrong or I am right 
I wonder if you realise oh just what it means to me 
Listen to me darlin' I'm just let you see 

Before 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 

Early morning finds me at the house upon the hill 
Everywhere the laughter reminds me of you still 
I'm haunted by the memories all too easy to recall 
I would dare to mention there's a lesson for us all 

Before 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 

Tears already falling like the rain upon the ground 
When the storm is over no trace of it is found 
Never will I understand how you vanished like the rain 
Tell me that you'll come back and let me live again 

Before 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls 
Before 
Before the next heartache falls

Mike & the Mechanics - Black & Blue

Hey, hey one fine day 
you're going away ooh 
what do you say, little girl. 

Yeah it's you I'm talkin' to 
tell me what right have you 
to leave me black and blue. 

You say nothing lasts forever 
no never, ever, ever 
but the goods you got 
oh God, you know it's hot, hot, hot, hot, hot. 
Ooh, it's hot. 

That's right it's black and white 
you're saying day is night 
But you leave me black and blue. 

You say nothing's everlasting 
and that love is just the last thing 
that you feel you want. 
You know you got 
You know it's hot, hot, hot, hot, hot. 

We'll I've tried to make it on my own 
But I just can't leave your love alone. 

Maybe just maybe, I'll get it sometime 
from a boat or a plane or a magical sign 
Send me the pieces, that make up my heart 
I'll put them together, a part by a part by .... 

Hey you I'm talking to, 
Tell me what right have you 
to leave me black and blue 
yeah what right have you, what right 
to leave me black and blue 
you wanna fight 
you're saying day is night 
you leave me black 
bring back the pieces that make up my heart 
and I'll put them together, a part by a part by a... 

Hey you I'm black and blue.

Mike & the Mechanics - Blame

While you're defending yourself 
maybe you'd like to explain 
are you a king for a day 
is it some ancient campaign 
Warpaint your flag on your face 
Gather the troops on the line 
you never made a mistake 
There at the scene of the crime. 

Blood on your hands 
blood on your feet 
down in the pouring rain 
what do you care 
out on the street 
we're gonna drive you insane 
nobody else to blame for all that. 

Where are the angry young men 
where are the fighters or yore 
looking for trouble again 
looking to settle a score. 

Why do you reincarnate 
why will you always be here 
pour out a nation of hate 
pour out an ocean of tears. 

Blood on your hands 
blood on your feet 
down in the pouring rain 
what do you care 
out on the street 
we're gonna drive you insane 
nobody else to blame for all that. 

Nobody questions the power elite 
who's gonna take up the strain 
nobody else to blame!

Mike & the Mechanics - Call to Arms

Pass the word, it's a call to arms 
Midnight man at your door 
Blackened faces run in the night 
Daybreak under the floor 

Bring my bow 
Fill my head with flame, and we must 
Let them know that the torch is lit again 
Crystalize the pain behind your eyes 
Are you ready to fight? 

(You hear the drum and) run for your life 
(Sweet Avalon the heat is on) 
In other words, I hope and pray 
That time and tide wash the hate away 
A simple man with simple thoughts 
Who turned to force as a last resort 

All around us, chaos rings 
Buildings crumbling down 
Silhouettes in the fiery rain 
Timbers crash to the ground 

Bring my spear, invested with my youth 
Bring the children near, they must now be told the truth 
Old and young and those of foreign tongue 
Are you ready to fight? 

(You hear the drum and) run for your life 
(Sweet Avalon the heat is on) 
In other words, I hope and pray 
That time and tide wash the hate away 
A simple man with simple thoughts 
Who turned to force as a last resort 

In other words, I hope and pray 
That time and tide keep the day away 
When simple men with simple thoughts 
Will turn to force as a last recourse

Mike & the Mechanics - Don't

I don't want to condescend 
I just want to be your friend 
I don't want to drive your car 
I just want to make a start 
with you 

I don't want to touch your lace 
I just want to touch your face 
but everytime I reach for you 
you say you don't want me to - you say 
don't 
don't hold my hand 
you don't understand 
don't push too hard 
don't go too far - don't 

you don't seem to be concerned 
when you make my body burn 
you don't want to torture me 
it's just a little purgatory 
I don't want to call you names 
you insist on playing hames 
when I try to state my case 
you just put me in my place -- you say 
don't 
will you walk with me 
will you talk with me 
open your heart 
and be human to me 
it's not fantasy 
it's reality 
This need for you that's 
Consuming me. 

I don't want to tempt no fate 
you just won't communicate 
when I try some sympathy 
You just turn your back on me 
You say don't

Mike & the Mechanics - Everybody Gets A Second Chance

A single failure 
A little slip 
A misdemeanour 
A little trip 
Does this condemn me 
Lock me away? 
Before you turn the key 
I have one more thing to say 
To make amends 
Maybe be friends 

Everybody gets a second chance 
The Circumstance to say I'm sorry 
I'd like to tell you in advance 
Take my chance and tell you 
I'm sorry too 

A little stumble 
A little fall 
Inconsequential 
Nothing At All 
Now there was someone 
I heard him say 
That the best laid plans 
Sometimes go astray 
So don't be surprised 
If I offer you no alibis 

Everybody gets a second chance 
The Circumstance to say I'm sorry 
I'd like to tell you in advance 
Take my chance and tell you 
I'm sorry too 

Everybody gets a second chance 
The circumstance to say I'm sorry 
I'd like to tell you in advance 
I'll take my chance and tell you I 
Take my chance and tell you 
I love you 

Everybody gets a second chance 
The Circumstance to say I'm sorry 
I'd like to tell you in advance 
Take my chance and tell you 
I'm sorry too 

Everybody gets a second chance 
The Circumstance to say I'm sorry 
I'd like to tell you in advance 
Take my chance and tell you 
I'm sorry too

Mike & the Mechanics - Get Up

Do you remember how we used to say 
Nothing could ever stand in our way 
Well it's no use pretending things are still the same 
'Cause we're no longer ahead of the game 

Well I've already gone through it all and it's true 
If you want to survive there's just one thing to do 

Get up! and do something 
Get up! and take control of your life 
Get up! and do something about it 
Don't ever make the same mistake twice 

Just like a flyer high above the ground 
I'm on a tightrope, afraid to look down 
Well I'm almost approaching the point of no return 
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever learn 

Well I've already said that you ought to be proud 
Listen, talking is cheap oh but action speaks loud 

Get up! and do something 
Get up! and take control of your life 
Get up! and do something about it 
Don't ever make the same mistake twice 

All of this time you've been learning to crawl 
When you're down on your knees you've got nowhere to fall 
Get up!

Mike & the Mechanics - Going, Going... Home

Going going home 
I hold a memory I can't let go 
Going going home 
Going going home 

You're long ago 
And far away 
But I can still remember you 

Going, going home 
I've got a memory that I can't let go 
And I know I won't be alone 
I'm goin' home 

The ones I love will all be there 
And I can see their smiling faces 

Oh I'm giving in 
It's like living in a war 
It can't be right 
And I can't fight this world 
No more 

I don't care where this highway goes 

Going going home 
I know I won't be alone 
I'm going 
I'm going home 

I know you'll always wait for me 
And now I'm going back to you 

Oh I'm giving in 
It's like living in a war 
It can't be right 
And I can't fight this world 
No more 
I don't care where this highway goes

Mike & the Mechanics - Hanging By A Thread

And through the grief and pain, I'm half insane 
I give an inch you take a mile 
You throw away the key, ignore my plea 
You cut me down without a trial 
(You keep me hanging by) hanging by a thread 
(You keep me hanging by) leaving me for dead 
(You keep me hanging by) I heard it when you said, 
(You keep me hanging by) "Keep him hanging by a thread" 

You throw a length of rope, I grab, you hope, 
It's just enough to hang myself 
I make a fatal slip, I lose my grip 
There's no-one left to call for help 

(You keep me hanging by) hanging by a thread 
(You keep me hanging by) leaving me for dead 
(You keep me hanging by) I'm not finished yet 
(You keep me hanging by) I'm still hanging by a thread 

I hear a final scream, another dream 
I hear it then I start to go (hang him by a thread) 
I recognise the pain, a time to play 
Then stuck me to the afterglow (hang him by a thread) 
Then I wake up wet, soaked in sweat 
Tell you all you want to know (hang him by a thread)

Mike & the Mechanics - I Believe 

Shattered dreams worthless years 
Here am I encased inside a hollow shell 
Life began then was done 
Now I stare into a cold empty well 
The many sounds that meet our ears 
The sights our eyes behold 
Will open up our merging hearts 
And feed our empty souls 

I believe when I fall in love with you 
It will be forever 
I believe when I fall in love this time 
It will be forever 
Without despair 

We will share and the joys of caring 
Will not be replaced 
What has been must never end 
And with the strength we have 
Won't be erased 
When the truths of love are planted firm 
They won't be hard to find 
And the words of love I speak to you 
Will echo in my mind 

I believe when I fall in love with you 
It will be forever 
I believe when I fall in love this time 
It will be forever 
Ever, ever, ever 

I believe when I fall in love with you 
It will be forever 
I'm so glad that I found someone 
To believe in again 

God surely answered my prayer 
God surely answered my prayer 
You know god surely answered my prayer 
You know god surely answered my prayer 
God always will answer your prayers 
Believe in one who will answer my prayer 
Thank you god 

I believe when I fall in love with you 
It will be forever 
I believe when I fall in love with you 
It will be forever 

Come on let's fall in love 
You're the woman I've been waiting for 
Come on let's fall in love 
You're the girl that I really adore 
Come on let's fall in love 
Come on baby let's fall in love 
Come on let's.

Mike & the Mechanics - I Get The Feeling

I get the feeling, that I've been here before 
Saying all these things to you 
I get the feeling, that I fell through that door 
Comin' down with deja-vu 
There's no emotion, nothing at all 
You don't even know my name 
I get the notion that you don't recall 
So here we go, and here we go 
Here we go again 

It's no good saying, that you've never been in love before 
No good explaining, that you've never been in love before 
No good denying, I've seen them comin' back for more 
I know you're lying, baby 
Cos your name is written on that door 

Oh, baby 

I get the feeling, that you've been here before 
Saying all these things to me 
I get the feeling, that I'm just a chore 
You don't give your love for free 
There's no excuses, nothing to say 
You just play those little games 
I get the feeling it would turn out this way 
So here we go, here we go 
Here we go again 

Your love has given me, what I never never had before 
But the way you're living, I just never never know the score 
Oh, I'm though with trying, and I say I can take no more 
You know I'm lying baby, when you hear me knocking at that door 

Oh girl 

I get the feeling, by the look on your face 
Could be the right time, but it sure is the wrong place 
I get the feeling that nothing I say 
Is gonna change a single thing, gonna make you come away 

Oh, I get the feeling 
Oh, I get the feeling 
Here we go again 
Here we go again 
Here we go 
I get the feeling 
Yeah get the feeling 
No no no, tell me now now 
Never been in love before 
Don't try tell me 
Don't try tell me about it 
Never been in love before 
I don't believe it darling, no

Mike & the Mechanics - Mea Culpa

You can't forgive 
And you won't forget 
We did something 
That we both regret mea culpa 

I held my breath while you 
Took your time 
To tell the world 
What's yours is mine mea culpa 

You don't need me 
You don't need anyone at all 
You've got what you desired 
You lit the fire 
And watched the rise and fall 

And in your eyes I could see my face 
A non believer 
In a state of grace mea culpa 

I see no reason for your complaint 
You got the sinner 
And not the saint mea culpa 

I can't say much I can't say anything at all 
You tell the story well 
Then you retire to watch the rise and fall 

You never know what's in your heart 
Until you look 
You never know what's in your heart 
Until you look 
Take a look 
Just take a look 
Just take a look 
Just take a look

Mike & the Mechanics - My Crime Of Passion

Words of warning took me by surprise 
From a voice I hardly recognised 
Well my heart was beating faster 
And my blood ran hot and cold 
I was heading for disaster 
When suddenly I realised that I had lost control 

Loaded questions played upon my mind 
Allegations I could not deny 
Well my mind was in confusion 
Had my back against the wall 
I'd been led into collusion 
Before I realised I was a victim of it all 

Here's to my crime of passion 
I can't forget the look upon your face 
And to your tender mercies 
Goodbye to all the innocence we never can replace 

All of Sunday sittin' by the telephone 
Not a whisper, well I should have known 
But it seems that I'd insisted 
'Cause in spite of all you said 
I believe my words were twisted 
As line by line the promises were spinning round my head 

Here's to my crime of passion 
I can't forget the look upon your face 
And to your tender mercies 
Goodbye to all the innocence we never can replace 

Waves of anger slowly do recede 
To faded memories that I'll never need 
But my mind keeps on returning to the way it used to be 
There's a flame forever burning 
There's nothing I can say to you will ever make you see 

Here's to my crime of passion 
I just can't seem to shake it off my mind 
As for your tender mercy 
I'll never stop regretting that I left it all behind

Mike & the Mechanics - Nobody Knows

There is nothing wrong with me 
there's nothing wrong with you 
maybe we're just blind to see 
each other's point of view. 

Nobody knows what we had. 

You could do much better, 
you could do much worse than me. 
I could have walked right out on you 
there was nothing stopping me 

Nobody knows what we had. 

We were running of passion 
we were running out of time 
there's a face to fit the future 
there's a face to fit the crime. 
Now the truth is on the table 
and the ghost is plain to see 
there's nothing wrong with you or me. 

I won't live in your world, 
you can't live in mine 
We don't hate each other darlin' 
we just gave up trying. 

Nobody knows what we had. 

Maybe I'm not crying 
maybe I don't mind 
But it hurts just knowing 
your children won't be mine. 

Nobody knows what we had.

Mike & the Mechanics - Nobodys Perfect

It must be hard 
being an angel 
when the devil in your heart 
won't set you free 
it must be hard 
being an angel 
when the world has let you down 
imperfection all around 

Hey look at me 
it must be hard 
it must be hard 
it must be hard. 

Nobody's perfect 
all of the time 
nobody's perfect 
we are what we are 
there's no perfect reason 
and no perfect rhyme 
for most of the time 
that's what we're looking for. 

Gentlemen gentlemen please! 
can you please support the notion 
of what I'm saying here 
that the person here in question 
must be an angel here on earth 
if they can't see a human being 
for what a human being's really worth 
gentlemen please! 

Nobody's perfect 
all of the time 
nobody's perfect 
we are what we are 
there's no perfect reason 
and no perfect rhyme 
for most of the time 
that's what we're looking for. 

It must be hard 
being an angel 
it must be hard 
when the world has let you down 
it must be hard 
being an angel 
it must be hard. 

Nobody's perfect 
all of the time 
nobody's perfect 
we are what we are 
there's no perfect reason 
no perfect rhyme 
most all of the time 
that's what we're looking for...

Mike & the Mechanics - Now That Youve Gone

As the night comes down 
Darkness slowly descends 
I am lost and alone again 
Now that you've gone 

As the shadows fall 
There's no place to hide 
From the pain I feel inside 
Now that you've gone 
Every thought of you, every memory 
Is a ghost that is hauting me 
Now that you've gone 

Now that you've gone 
How can I go on? 
I can't believe, this could happen to me 
Now that you've gone 
I've got to find a way 
I need to know life goes on 
Now that you've gone 

There's a heavy cloud 
Hanging over me 
It's part of the legacy 
Now that you've gone 
Everything I do 
Seems to make no sense 
And I'm losing all my confidence 
Now that you've gone 

Now that you've gone 
How can I go on 
I can't believe, this could happen to me 
Now that you've gone 
I've got to find a way 
I need to know life goes on 
Now that you've gone 

I'm just a shadow of the man I used to be 
Before you turned me inside out 
Your love was all that ever meant 
a thing to me 
It's something I can't live without 

No, No 
Now that you've gone 
Losing my way 
Don't let me see 
Now that you've gone 

Now that you've gone 
How can I go on? 
I can't believe, this could happen to me 
Now that you've gone 
I've got to find a way 
I can't believe, this could happen to me 
Now that you've gone 
I've got to find a way 
I need to know life goes on 
Now that you've gone 

Oh, Oh 
Now that you've gone 
Can't get away 
Oh, Baby 
Now that you've gone 
I've got to find a way 
Baby 
Now that you've gone 
To letting it go 
Baby I need to know 
Now that you've gone 
Cos I need to know 
Letting me go 
Now that you've gone 
No matter baby

Mike & the Mechanics - Over My Shoulder

Looking back over my shoulder 
I can see that look in your eye 

I never dreamed It could be over 
I never wanted to say goodbye 

Looking back over my shoulder with 
an aching deep in my heart 

I wish that we were starting over 
oh instead of drifting so far apart 

Everybody told me you were leaving funny 
I should be last to know 

Baby please tell me that I'm dreaming 
I just never want to let you go 

Looking back over my shoulder 
I can see that look in your eyes 
Turning my heart over and over 
I never wanted to say goodbye 

I don't mind everybody laughing 
but it's enough to make a grown man cry 
Cos’ I can fell you slipping through my fingers 
I don't even know the reason why 

Every day It's a losing battle just to smile 
and hold my head up high 
Could it be that we belong together 
baby won't you give me one more try 
on more try 

Looking back over my shoulder 
with an aching feeling inside 
Cutting me up deeper and 
deeper fill me with a sadness that can't hide

Mike & the Mechanics - Par Avion

Another day has passed me by 
And there's an island in the sun 
To see me through 
Another day in paradise 
But there's no reason, there's no rhyme 
Without you 

Here comes the night (night) 
Here comes the dreaming of you 
Breathing your love in me 
Here comes the night (night) 
Here comes the feeling I've been 
Waiting here for so long 
I've been waiting here for so long 

There's a time and there's a place 
When we can share the silver night 
Silent room 
In my bed an empty space 
Cos there's no other in my life 
Only you 

Here comes the night (night) 
Here comes the dreaming of you 
Breathing your love in me 
Here comes the night (night) 
Here comes the feeling I've been 
Waiting here for so long 
I've been waiting here for so long 

Here comes the night 
Here comes the dreaming of you 
Breathing your love in me

I'd like my life to be simple 
I need my life to be straight

Need my life to be pure

Making sense making sense

Like my life to be plain 
So don't you say that I ever 
Live in vain live in vain 
That's insane sane sane

Mike & the Mechanics - Poor Boy Down

He's a poor boy in his pocket 
he's a poor boy in his shoes. 
he's done his time 
he's stood in line 
that boy has paid his dues. 

He ain't looking for a handout 
he's just looking for a start 
he don't hate anyone 
he don't carry a gun 
you can tell that kid is smart. 

So you can' 
t keep that poor boy down 
you can be unkind 
you can rob him blind 
but you can't keep that poor boy down. 
you can lie and cheat 
you can chain his feet 
but you can't keep that poor boy down. 

And all down throughout the ages 
the kid's been treated rough 
just take a look 
in any history book 
you can see that times were tough. 

Now we move up to the nineties 
up to the 21st 
one day he'll stand 
a full grown man 
and be the same as all of us. 

So you can't keep that poor boy down 
you can lock him up 
you can break his cup 
but you can't keep that poor boy down. 

You can fight and steal 
you can drag your heels 
but you can't keep that poor boy down 
You can kick his ass 
if the kid's got class 
you can't keep that poor boy down. 

Let's stop the truck 
go back and pick him up 
you can't keep that poor boy down. 

Let him go!!

Mike & the Mechanics - Seeing Is Believing

I believe in Jesus 
his father's only son 
I do believe he sees us 
with the loaded gun. 

I believe in the magic 
Of the Mujahedin 
I still believe in Daniel Ortega 
the sun in Omega, the Lord of the Rings 
I believe in most everything. 
I believe, I believe 

I have a friend in England 
who says I must escape 
the meetings of Mao and Nixon 
it's an old debate. 

But I believe in the magic 
of the King and the Queen 
And I still have a young rebel's sympathy 
radical symphonies still have a ring 
I believe in most everything. 
I believe 
I fear this muddled thinking 
has to go some time 
I fear this sinking feeling's 
not the best of signs 
I feel I'm in trouble 
as the Eighties close 
I look to the future 
I'm frightened, I'm scared U suppose. 

You may think it's foolish 
that I still believe in love 
You laugh and you sneer 
-it's cruel 
It's what I'm thinking of. 

I believe in the magic 
in the power of the soul 
one to one's my equation 
that carries the nation on to the goal 
we're all brothers and sisters, I'm told. 

I believe, I believe, I believe in love 
do you believe what you're seeing 
Oh I believe in love. 

I believe in love 
I believe, I believe, 
I believe, I believe, I believe in love.

Mike & the Mechanics - Silent Running

Take the children and yourself 
And hide out in the cellar 
By now the fighting will be close at hand 
Don't believe the church and state 
And everything they tell you 
Believe in me, I'm with the high command 

Can you hear me, can you hear me running? 
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? 
Can you hear me, can you hear me running? 
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? 

There's a gun and ammunition 
Just inside the doorway 
Use it only in emergency 
Better you should pray to God 
The Father and the Spirit 
Will guide you and protect from up here 

Can you hear me, can you hear me running? 
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? 
Can you hear me, can you hear me running? 
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? 

Swear allegiance to the flag 
Whatever flag they offer 
Never hint at what you really feel 
Teach the children quietly 
For some day sons and daughters 
Will rise up and fight while we stood still 

Can you hear me, can you hear me running? 
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? 
Can you hear me, can you hear me running? 
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you? 

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?) 
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you? 
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe? 
(Can you hear me running) hear me running? 
Calling you, calling you

Mike & the Mechanics - Someone Always Hates Someone

Last night I shook hands with the devil 
In a dream that I can never lose 
He laughed when he saw me cryin' 
At the pictures on the evening news 
He said it's not really a dilemma 
You're just a little out of touch 
Don't think of the situation 
Cos it'll make you think too much 

Someone always hates someone 
Someone always hates someone 
Someone always sells a gun 
Cos someone always hates someone 

A child will be born tomorrow 
As open as an empty cup 
And we'll fill it with hope and sorrow 
The very things that messed us up 
We'll ask him to join the congregation 
A hindu moslem christian or jew 
Pretty soon he'll recognise his brothers 
But soon he'll know the enemy too 

Someone always hates someone 
Someone always hates someone 
Someone always buys a gun 
Cos someone always hates someone 

I died and I went to heaven 
In a dream I never had before 
A good friend who had gone before me 
Had kindly left my name at the door 
I looked on the face of the almighty 
Couldn't help myself 
I started to shout 
How come you made a mess of things 
How come you didn't work it out 

He said 
Someone always hates someone 
Someone always hates someone 
There's so much love for everyone 
But someone always hates someone

Mike & the Mechanics - Something To Believe In

There's a silver moon 
Shining in the room 
Where we sleep like spoons together 
Lying in the dark 
I can feel your heart 
And it beats with mine forever 

Coming from the street 
You can feel the heat 
As the city sleeps 
In the silence 
And the perfect light 
Of a summers night 
Is broken by the violence 

Then a woman screams 
And a baby cries 
And someone's dream is shattered 
When the nightmares dance 
Before your eyes 
They can leave you bruised and battered 

Then I realise 
That I'm by your side 
And I'm listening to you breathing 
And in this room 
With the silver moon 
You're something to believe in 

There's a boy out there 
With a crazy stare 
And a gun to make a living 
In a sea of hate 
Where you can't think straight 
In a world that's unforgiving 

And it's all gone bad 
In a world gone mad 
And you're scared that you'll discover 
That the one you love 
And the one you trust 
Is like all the others 

Then I realise 
That I'm by your side 
And I'm listening to you breathing 
And in this room 
With the silver moon 
You're something to believe in 
You're something to believe in 

And in this room 
With the silver moon 
You're something to believe in

Where will you go 
Where will you stay tonight 
Is there someone you know 
Are you sure you're alright 

I never cry 
I never could show the pain 
But I won't survive 
Now it's all gone

You don't understand and I said

I'm a man, don't you forget it, I'm not a little kid 
Understand, you might regret it, treating me the way you did 
Hey old man, shut your mouth and listen, this here's the new regime 
I command, you could go missin', you could be off the scene 

(I'm not here to pray) I'm not here to pray 
(So papa don't say) so papa don't say, I'm not ready 
Cos the hands feel so steady, take the reins 

We got a team, we got the muscle, when things are getting tight 
Will there seem, if there's a hustle, money changes every fight? 
Look at me, you will discover, I'm not my father's son 
You will see, when you recover, I'm mama's only one 

(Look straight in my eye) look me in the eye 
(Try to deny) try to deny, I'm not ready 
But these hands feel so sturdy, oh, take the reins 

(Take the reins) 

(I'm sure in your game) I know that in your game 
(You were okay) you were okay, that's behind us 
Oh, Louise, is it vengeless? 
Oh, take the reins 

I'm a man, I'm not a little kid 
Why, I understand 
Shut your mouth and listen 
Ah, and don't work out a new regime 
Yeah, I got a team 
Yeah, take the reins 
I'm mama's only one 
Ah, take the reins

Mike & the Mechanics - Taken In

Taken in, taken in again 
Wrapped around the finger of some fair-weather friend 
Caught up in the promises, left out in the end 
No pride, taken for a ride 
You say I'm the only one when I look in your eyes 
I want to believe you but you know how to lie 

And if you say you understand I don't believe it 
And when you reach out for my hand I don't believe it 
And if you say you take the blame I don't believe it 
And if say that nothing's changed I don't believe it, don't believe it 

Taken in, taken in again 
Someone saw me coming, a fool without a friend 
There's one born every minute and you're looking at him 

And if you say you want me near I don't believe it 
And when you're holding back the tears I don't believe it 
And when you swear that you are mine I don't believe it 
And it's your heart that's on the line I don't believe it, don't believe it 

Taken in, taken in again 
Wrapped around the finger of some fair-weather friend 
Caught up in the promises, left out in the end 
No pride, taken for a ride 
You say I'm the only one when I look in your eyes 
I'd love to believe you but you know how to lie 

You say you want me near I don't believe it 
And when you're holding back the tears I don't believe it 
Oh, there's one born every minute, you're looking at him 

Taken in, taken in again 
Someone saw me coming, a fool without a friend 
I want to believe you, oh 
When you say you understand 
When you reach out for my hand 
Oh, I wish I could believe you 
Taken in, taken in again

Mike & the Mechanics - The Ghost Of Sex And You

It was an unbelievable night 
She was an unremarkable girl 
You may not call it poetry 
But it changed my world 

It was an unforgettable dawn 
She was an indisputable fact 
Even if I could have 
I might not have it back 

It's an unexceptional day 
She's an unavoidable truth 
Uncompromised elation 
Suspended since my youth 

It's an unforgivable lie 
I have nothing in my defence 
There can be no forgiveness 
To caution this descent 

It wasn't in a dream 
A film or on TV 
This was really happening 
Happening to me 
Though I may protest 
Suggest I never knew 
The ghost comes back to haunt me 
The ghost of sex and you 

I held her hand outside the hotel 
Kissed her mouth in the back of the car 
Whether fact or fantasy 
I knew we'd gone too far 

I feel her breath on the back of my neck 
She's lying naked here on the floor 
Wrap the sheet around her 
Disappear beyond the door 

It wasn't in a dream 
A film or on TV 
This was really happening 
Happening to me 
Though I may protest 
Suggest I never knew 
The ghost comes back to haunt me 
The ghost of sex and you 

It was an unbelievable night 
She was an unremarkable girl 
You may not call it poetry 
But it changed my world 
The ghost of sex and you 

It was an unforgettable dawn 
She was an indisputable fact 
Even if I could have 
I might not have it back 
Sex and you 

It's an unexceptional day 
She's an unavoidable truth 
Uncompromised elation 
Suspended since my youth 
Sex and you 

It's an unforgivable lie 
I have nothing in my defence 
There can be no forgiveness 
To caution this descent 
The ghost of sex and you

Mike & the Mechanics - The Living Years

Every generation 
Blames the one before 
And all of their frustrations 
Come beating on your door 

I know that I'm a prisoner 
To all my father held so dear 
I know that I'm a hostage 
To all his hopes and fears 
I just wish I could have told him 
In the living years 

Crumpled bits of paper 
Filled with imperfect thought 
Stilted conversations 
I'm afraid that's all we've got 

You say you just don't see it 
He says it's perfect sense 
You just can't get agreement 
In this present tense 
We all talk a different language 
Talking in defence 

Say it loud, say it clear 
You can listen as well as you hear 
It's too late when we die 
To admit we don't see eye to eye 

So we open up a quarrel 
Between the present and the past 
We only sacrifice the future 
It's the bitterness that lasts 

So don't yield to the fortunes 
You sometimes see as fate 
It may have a new perspective 
On a different day 
And if you don't give up, 
And don't give in 
You may just be OK 

Say it loud, say it clear 
You can listen as well as you hear 
It's too late when we die 
To admit we don't see eye to eye 

I wasn't there that morning 
When my father passed away 
I didn't get to tell him 
All the things I had to say. 
I think I caught his spirit 
Later that same year 
I'm sure I heard his echo 
In my baby's new born tears 
I just wish I could have told him 
In the living years 

Say it loud, say it clear 
You can listen as well as you hear 
It's too late when we die 
To admit we don't see eye to eye

Mike & the Mechanics - The Way You Look At Me

Softly you told me what I already knew 
No doubt in my mind, no doubt that it was true 
The tenderness we had and the love that we used to share 
Have long since disappeared if ever really there 
Torn by the pleasure and the pain of loving you 
I'm so confused I don't know what to do 

Just when I'm saying the need for you is gone 
That's when I realise the feeling's just as strong 

Something in the way you look at me 
Something that you just can't hide 
Something in the way you look at me 
Oh could never be denied 
Nothing I can do to change it 
Nothing I can even try 
Something in the way you look at me 
Darlin' I don't know, I don't know why 

Too long it's been easy to carry on this way 
When the words that really hurt are the ones we don't say 
Hard to believe we had a love so strong 
And I just can't accept that it could go so wrong 

Try to explain I don't know if I can 
What will it take to make you understand there's 

Something in the way you look at me 
Something that you just can't hide 
Something in the way you look at me 
Oh could never be denied 
Nothing I can do to change it 
Nothing I can even try 
Something in the way you look at me 
Darlin' I don't know, I don't know why 

Something in the way you look at me 
Something that you just can't hide 
Something in the way you look at me 
Oh could never be denied 
Nothing I can do to change it 
Nothing I can even try 
Something in the way you look at me 
Darlin' I don't know, I don't know why 

Something in the way you look at me 
Something I just can't explain 
Something in the way you look at me 
And I know I've got to try try again 
Nothing I can do to change it 
Nothing I can even try 
Something in the way you look at me 
I don't know why

Mike & the Mechanics - Web Of Lies

Just a minor indiscretion 
No need to apologise 
I don't want this to become an obsession 
But I just can't believe my eyes 

Evidence in my possession 
Points a finger straight at you 
Every day I'm closer to a confession 
If only I can face the truth 

Every mistake that you make 
Drives the knife into my heart 
Twisting down deeper and deeper 
Still tearing me apart 

I'm trying to find a grain of truth in this web of lies 
I'm trying to find a grain of truth in this web of lies 

You swear to god you're on the level 
And you've nothing more to hide 
Then I turn around and "speak of the devil" 
You're both together side by side 

Every mistake that you make 
Seems more careless than the last 
I'm just amazed that you try to cover 
The tracks of your past 

I'm trying to find a grain of truth in this web of lies 
I'm trying to find a grain of truth in this web of lies 

Have you got me in your pocket? 
Am I eating from your hand 
I think we need to shed some light on the matter 
So I can really understand 

Darlin' there's no perfect crime 
That's left without a trace 
And right now I'm judge and I'm jury 
Till I can rest my case 

I'm trying to find a grain of truth in this web of lies 
I'm trying to find a grain of truth in this web of lies

There's still a question in the back of

Whenever I go, whatever I do 
You know it's with me everyday 
Whatever you say you need to 
understand 
I never want to know that feeling again 
No matter how hard I try to forget 
I can't help being the way I am 

Well I want you to listen 
And I want you to see 
I want you back here with me 
Just like it used to be 
Everything will be easy everything 
will be fine 
Cos I'll be different this time 

Whenever I stop and think about it 
There's still a question in the back 
of my mind 
Whenever I go whatever I do 
You know it's with me everyday 
Wherever you are I hope you 
understand 
I'm always waiting for a chance to 
make amends 
Cos I realise however I try 
I'll never find someone like you 

Well I want you to listen 
And I want you to see 
I want you back here with me 
Just like it used to be 
Everything will be easy 
everything will be fine 
Cos I'll be different this time 

Whenever I'm lost I'll think about you 
Try to remind myself how good it can be 
Maybe in time you'll come to realise 
Just what you really mean to me 

Whenever I stop and think about it 
There's still a question in the back 
of my mind 
Whenever I go, whatever I do 
You know it's with me everyday 

Whenever I stop and think about it 
There's still a question in the back 
of my mind 
Whenever I go, whatever I do 
You know it's with me everyday 

Whenever I stop, stop and think about it 
I'm always waiting for a chance to 
make amends 
Cos I realise however I try 
I'll never find someone like you

Mike & the Mechanics - Why Me?

These are dangerous times 
that were living in 
and there are dangerous signs 
that were giving in to fear 
late one night, I'm lying here 
I thought I heard a sound. 

Tell the mothers and the babes 
tell the old, tell the sick they will be safe 
get the young males. Tell them to be brave 
I was so concerned with saving live 
I never saw you pull the knife. 

High on the mountains 
across seven seas 
All of the people 
why me, why me? 
Do you feel so frustrated 
Frightened and feared 
answer my question 
Why me, why me, why me 
why me, why me, why me? 

You're such an angry young man 
with all your grievances 
people don't understand, 
they just can't understand 
what you must do to stay alive. 

So you try to justify 
all the violence and hate, before your eyes. 
Through the ages better men than you have tried 
to give what is not theirs to give 
to take the land where others live. 

High on the mountains 
across seven seas 
all of the people why me, why me? 
Do you feel so frustrated 
frightened and feared 
answer my question 
why here, why now, 
why here, why now, hey here, 
why now, why me? 

Oh, for now you have the power 
the guns and all the swords 
but nature has a nasty habit 
of balancing her flaws. 

Now you may try to break my body 
lock me up and throw away the key 
but you'll never break my spirit 
I'm free!

Mike & the Mechanics - Word Of Mouth

Now the world is getting older 
There's a few thingsto be said 
Do you believe the things they told you 
Do you believe the things you've read 

There'sa rumour on the corner 
But it's always been denied 
Cause they don't want you any wiser 
You're just toenig the party line 

From the west side to the east side 
From the north side to the south 
You'll never get bad information 
If you believe in the word of mouth 

Look out for those who still want to hang on 
Look out for those who live in the past 
Get out and listen to the whisper 
Because the times are changing fast 

From the west side to the east side 
From the north side to the south 
You'll never get bad information 
If you believe in the word of mouth 

You don't believe the information 
You don't believe it when it's denied 
So when you're reading expanations 
You have to read between the lines 

From the west side to the east side 
Through the windows I'm looking out 
You'll never get bad information 
If you believe in the word of mouth 

From the west side to the east side 
From the north side to the south 
You'll never get bad information 
If you believe in the word of mouth

Mike & the Mechanics - Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

I met a man back in the future 
He was high then he was low 
You know his one consideration 
Should he come or should he go 

I met a girl she wants to give me 
The gift of living just for today 
Ignore the past ignore the future 
You're only going to wish your life away - say 

Why can't today be tomorrow 
Why must there be yesterday 
Why can't today be tomorrow 
Oh tell me why please tell me why 
Are you wishing your life away? 

You know that life is no rehearsal 
You're never going to get it right 
It's inconsistent and it's imperfect 
It's going to give you sleepless nights 

And then you find you wake up nervous 
For every reason under the sun 
Life is full of indecision 
It's the same for everyone - say 

Why can't today be tomorrow 
Why must there be yesterday 
Why can't today be tomorrow 
Oh tell me why please tell me why 
Are you wishing your life away? 

Why can't today be tomorrow 
Why must there be yesterday - so tell me 
Why can't today be tomorrow - oh tell me 
Why can't today be tomorrow 
Are you wishing you're life away 
Why can't today be tomorrow?

Mike & the Mechanics - You Are The One

Time from the man, who will live while he can, on his own 
Pass by the dream, it's movie you've seen once before 
Tears in the rain, as you wave at the plane 
As it climbs through the clouds, to the sun 

You are the one, oh, you are the one 
You make it all worthwhile, you make it all worthwhile 
You are the one, oh, you are the one 
You make it all worthwhile, you make it all worthwhile 
I see your picture smiling back at me 
But I'm afraid of the future, I'm afraid you won't see 

Look for the slave, is he trying to wave or to drown? 
There at the start, he'll be there when your heart touches down 
Drawn to the pain, like a moth to a flame 
As he climbs through the clouds, to the sun 

You are the one, oh, you are the one 
You make it all worthwhile, you make it all worthwhile 
You are the one (you are the one) 
Oh, you are the one (you're the only one) 
You make it all worthwhile (you make it all worthwhile) 
You make it all worthwhile 
I see your picture smiling back at me 
But I'm afraid of the future, I'm afraid you won't see

Mike & the Mechanics - You've Really Got A Hold On Me

I don't like you but I love you, 
Seems that I'm always thinking of you. 
Oh, you treat me badly I love you madly; 
You really got a hold on me, 
You really got a hold on me, baby. 
I love you and all I want you to do is just hold me, 
Hold me, hold me, hold me. 

I don't want you but I need you, 
Don't want to kiss you but I need to. 
Oh, you do me wrong now my love is strong now; 
You really got a hold on me, 
You really got a hold on me, baby. 
I love you and all I want you to do is just hold me, 
Hold me, hold me, hold me. 

You tighter, 
Tighter I want to leave you don't want to stay here, 
Don't want to spend another day here. 
Oh, I want to split now; 
I can't quit now. 
You really got a hold on me, 
You really got a hold on me. 
Baby really got a hold on me, 
I said you really got a hold on me
