A Whiter Shade of Pale

length: 4:52
composer: Matthew Fisher, Gary Brooker
lyricist: Keith Reid

We skipped the light fandango,
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor,
I was feeling kind of sea-sick,
And the crowd called out for more,
And the room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away,
When we called out for another drink
But the waiter brought a tray.
And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

You said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see,
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be.
And one of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast,
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well be closed.
And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.
A whiter shade of pale,
Turned a whiter shade of pale,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

Heaven

length: 4:57
lyricist: Richard Butler
writer: Tim Butler
Heaven is the home of the hearts
And heaven don't tear you apart
Yea heaven is the home of the hearts
And heaven don't tear you apart

There's too many kinks want to hold you down
And the world is a window gone underground
There's a hole in the sky where the sun don't shine
And a clock on the wall and it counts my time

Heaven is the home of our hearts
And heaven don't tear you apart

There's a song on the air with a love-you-line
And a face in a glass and it looks like mine
And I'm standing on ice when I say that I don't hear planes
And I scream at the fools want to jump my train

Heaven can take you up take you high
Take you up to the place
Where you're gonna find peace
Peace in your heart
Peace in your heart
You don't have to suffer...

(I'm Always Touched by Your) Presence Dear

length: 3:04

Was it destiny? I don't know yet
Was it just by chance? Could this be Kismet?
Something in my consciousness told me you'd appear
Now I'm always touched by your presence dear
When we play at cards you use an extra sense
You can read my hand, I've got no defence
When you sent your messages whispered loud and clear
I am always touched by your presence dear
Floating past the evidence of possibilities
We could navigate together, psychic frequencies

Coming into contact with outer entities
We could entertain each one with our theosophies

Stay awake at night and count your R.E.M.'s
When you're talking with your super friends
Levitating lovers in the secret stratosphere
I am still in touch with your presence dear
I am still in touch with your presence dear
I am still in touch with your presence dear, dear, dear, dear, dear

Love Song for a Vampire (From 'Bram Stoker's Dracula')

length: 4:19
composer: Annie Lennox
Come into these arms again
And lay your body down
The rhythm of this trembling heart
Is beating like a drum

It beats for you, it bleeds for you
It know not how it sound
For it is the drum of drums
It is the song of songs

Once I had rarest rose
That ever deigned to bloom.
Cruel winter chilled the bud
And stole my flower too soon.

Oh loneliness, oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine.

Love, oh love, oh love
Still falls the rain (still falls the rain)
Love, oh love, oh, love
Still falls the night
Love, oh love, oh love
Be mine forever (be mine forever)
Love, oh love, oh love

Let me be the only one
To keep you from the cold
Now the floor of heaven's lain
With stars of brightest gold

They shine for you, they shine for you
They burn for all to see
Come into these arms again
And set this spirit free
