Hello sunday

Lyrics: Janet Hill

Hello Sunday Hello Sunday it's the day

Hello Sunday, sky is blue, don't have a single thing to do. Should I stay in bed, the world goes by, count the hours and, watch time fly

Sunrise over Primrose Hill, the streets are empty, air is still. Hello Sunday Sunday, it's the day when I can ease the time away

Hello Sunday sunday - hello Sunday Sunday Relax, kick back, don't think of Monday. Hello Sunday - hello Sunday, Relax and take it easy on a Sunday

Hello Sunday, it's my time. It's the only day that's mine. Could I take a walk to Camden Town ? Lunch with friends, just hanging, hanging round.

Hello Sunday sunday - hello Sunday Sunday Relax, kick back, don't think of Monday. Hello Sunday - hello Sunday, Relax and take it easy on a Sunday

Oh I feel so lazy it's just so crazy, I wish the day would last. All week I pay my dues, all week and it's so cruel, that Sunday goes so fast.

Hello Sunday sunday - hello Sunday Sunday Relax, kick back, don't think of Monday. Hello Sunday - hello Sunday, Relax and take it easy on a Sunday


Children in bare feet

Lyrics: Germaine Shames

When I’m alone at night I dream them Trembling in my sleep And everywhere I go I see them I could almost weep

I will not sing you a requiem though We walk the same street Even with my eyes closed I see them Children in bare feet

I look away but they’re here beside me I look away but they reach inside me I look away but they’re all I can see Children in bare feet

When I’m alone at night I dream them Fragile as the dawn And everywhere I go I feel them Traveling along

This is no time for a requiem We've all learned to take the heat. Even with my eyes closed I see them Children in bare feet Children in bare feet

Show me a place where no pain can find me Let the last tide rise Show me the heaven madmen deny me Children, lift your eyes Children, lift your eyes

I look away but they’re here beside me I look away but they reach inside me I look away but they’re all I can see Children in bare feet Children in bare feet Children in bare feet Trembling in my dreams


One day

Lyrics: Fiona McEwen

One day we will meet again On that far and distant shore And holding hands understand That no one loved us more

One day we will meet again After the tears and the pains One day we will be as one After the fears and the rain

One day we will meet again After other loves have gone And looking at each other then Will see our love lives on

One day we will leave it all And walk through forest lawns Our days will come again Like the sunlight and the dawn


Shattered

Every time I get close you will leave in a hurry You can break on the shore, make me wade in your wreckage You can flow on and on, make me wait till you’re ready

Never know if your touch should be colder or hotter If your love is a sea or a stretch of white water

When you hold me I feel like I’m swept by your rapids To a place where I drown, to a place where I’m stranded Never know if you give me your all or a quarter If your love is a sea or a stretch of white water

In your arms I’m a saint, in your arms I’m a hazard On your tide I’ll be saved, on your rocks I’ll be shattered shattered shattered shattered again

I will never be close, I will never be precious I will never go deep where you keep all your treasures

There are days when I feel like a chain round your ankle But I’ll keep you afloat and I won’t be your anchor

Never know if we sail or just go through the motions If my love is your wave or a drop in your ocean

In your arms I’m a saint, in your arms I’m a hazard On your tide I’ll be saved, on your rocks I’ll be shattered shattered shattered shattered again

In your arms I’m a saint, in your arms I’m a hazard On your tide I’ll be saved, on your rocks I’ll be shattered shattered shattered shattered again


Untraceably gone

Winter is curled up on my window sill Rain in my eyes but I can't make it spill Watching the clock hands erase me away Silence with nothing at all in the way

Winter is shivering, chilled in my arms Fate is astray in the lines on my palms I will no longer keep drifting on Now it's my turn to be gone

Winter is endless Snow keeps on falling Slow and relentless No use recalling What was before I froze to the core No holding on I'm untraceably gone

Winter's white kisses are sealing the trap Heart like an icicle ready to snap I am becoming a faint silhouette Now it's my turn to forget

It's so easy deciding To let go and do it Whiteness is blinding I'm walking right through it I've turned invisible I've turned insensible I am untraceable

Winter is endless Snow keeps on falling Slow and relentless No use recalling What was before I froze to the core No holding on I'm untraceably gone


Love now

Lyrics: Germaine Shames

There’s only love There’s only now I’ve looked in books but never found how To live without what I’m living for Let me love now Let me love more

There’s only now There’s only love You’ll scour and search the heavens above Yet never find that one golden door Let me love now Let me love more

Forever’s too short Tomorrow’s too late If love’s all you need, friend Then why hesitate? Love, love now Love, love now

There’s only love Only today Your dreams may sail off—I’m here to stay And I won’t live without what I’m living for Let me love now Let me love more

Forever’s too short Tomorrow’s too late If love’s all you need, friend Then why hesitate? Love, love now Love, love now

Forever’s too short Tomorrow’s too late If love’s all you need, friend Then why hesitate Love, love now Love, love now Love, love now…


Gone baby gone

Lyrics: Mary McLain

The open road is calling my name I love this brand new outlook I've found Nothing in life will be the same Cause I refuse to let you hold me down

I'm off to be my own hero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Five, four, three, two, one, zero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Gone

You promised me the world, I got burned I knew better to fall for your lies It's a lesson that I finally learned So it's time for me to say my good-byes

I'm off to be my own hero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Five, four, three, two, one, zero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Gone

It took time but I'm now living life Now, I've found my freedom There are better things to come in life Now, I've found my freedom Gone baby gone; gone gone baby gone gone

Driving down the road hands in the air I love this brand new outlook I've found My future plans have never been so clear Since I refused to let you hold me down

I'm off to be my own hero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Five, four, three, two, one, zero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone

I'm off to be my own hero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Five, four, three, two, one, zero Gone baby gone; gone baby gone Gone


What did we do wrong ?

Lyrics: Marie Soyer/Philippe Perelman/Lucy Prasad

Windy streets and rainy places empty hearts, we've burned our bridges we're lost and hurt with no more choices What did we do wrong ?

we used to laugh about the future we used to laugh about today It seemed so easy back in those days What did we do wrong ? What did we do wrong ?

distant smiles upon our faces slip away and leave no traces forgotten words and wasted chances What did we do wrong ?

we used to laugh about the future we used to laugh about today It seemed so easy back in those days What did we do wrong ? What did we do wrong ? What did we do wrong ?


All true

Your smoky reflection will tear up my mind A flick of your wrist and I trigger a mine Your cryptic desires leave me no wiser Your touch is a shot of my tranquilizer

I’m learning your code, re-learning to talk On dangerous grounds together we walk You’re stalking my dreams, tracing my shadow Take out my heart and I’ll hand you an arrow

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true all true all true

Pieces don’t fit Through your mazes I crawl Sink in your ocean defeated and small If you want me at all Once and for all I’ll be with you In endless relentless Free fall

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true all true all true


Coffee queen

My coffee queen, where’ve you been? I confess I’m a mess Sink me in caffeine Coffee queen Mmm you’re my dream love routine

My coffee queen, where’ve you been? Spill the beans, let’s begin Flood my veins with no reins Coffee queen Mmm you’re my dream love routine

My hands a-jitter mind a-skitter My tingling skin My inner voice my drug of choice You always win, my coffee queen

My coffee queen, where’ve you been? Warm my palms, make me calm Sweetest sin, head a-spin Coffee queen Mmm you’re my dream love routine

My hands a-jitter mind a-skitter My tingling skin My inner voice my drug of choice You always win, my coffee queen you my love routine

Oooh every nerve on the edge off the ledge Oooh get me hooked in one shot extra hot Oooh make me beg let me brew next to you Oooh Coffee queen you’re my dream Coffee queen
