Dangerland


Dangerland
There is a land I know
Far from our gravity
Where healing waters flow
And love is always free
Come with me
Come with me
To love's dangerland

Here every creature knows
Respect and dignity
And every wind that blows
Speaks of a new deity

Come to my world of dreams
Nothing is what it seems
I'll take you
For all eternity
A life in harmony we're living
And you love me
And you love me

The lamb lays down beside
The lion while he's sleeping
He wakes the sun rising
The stars themselves are bleeding
Take my hand
Dare to stand
In love's dangerland

Oooh oooh
Yeah!
Blue eagles rule the sky
No evil in disguise will take you
This land is filled with plenty
No cup is ever empty
It's heaven
And you love me
My fantasy
Green dinossaurs go striding
Through fields os humans hiding
The world of empathy
Decreasing entropy
Come with me
Come with me
To love's dangerland

To love's dangerland
Danger danger dangerland
Danger danger dangerland

Anthem

length: 3:18
No man no madness
Though their sad power may prevail
Can possess conquer my country's heart
They rise to fail
She is eternal
Long before nations' lines were drawn
When no flags flew when no armies stood
My land was born
And you ask me why I love her
Through wars death and despair She is the constant
We who don't care
And you wonder why I leave her
But how?
I cross over borders but I'm still there now
How can I leave her?
Where would I start?
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

I Can't Be Your Friend

length: 3:56

Defying Gravity

length: 4:15
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by
The rules of someone else's game
Too late for second guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap

It's time to try defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity
And you can't bring me down
Mmm-mmm

I'm through accepting limits
Cos someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But til I try I'll never know
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well if that's love it comes at
Much too high a cost

I'd sooner buy defying gravity
I'm way up high, I'm defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity
And you won't bring me down

Unlimited
My future is unlimited
And I just had a vision
Almost like a prophecy
I know
It sounds truly crazy
And, true, the vision's hazy
But I can see it
I can feel it
I swear I'll be so high
yeah yeah

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky
As someone told me lately
Everyone deserves a chance to fly
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who ground me
Take a message back from me
ah yeah

It's time to try defying gravity
I'm way up high, I'm defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity
And you won't bring me
You won't bring me down
aaah
ah-ah-ah-ahhh

Hands touch, eyes meet
Sudden silence, sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl
I'm not that girl

Blithe smile, lithe limb
She who's winsome, she wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And heaven knows
I'm not that girl

Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
Don't remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I'm not that girl

Every so often we long to steal
To the land of what might have been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know
He loves her so
I'm not that girl

I'm not that girl
Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
(I'm not that girl)
I won't wish, and I won't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
(I'm not that girl)

I won't dream, but I'm gonna pray
That maybe someday
I'll be that girl

You Have to Be There

length: 4:28
You have banished me
From the land where I was born
Here upon a foreign shore forsaken
I have followed you
And gone thy way
Should I kneel to you
When I rise you strike me down
Once again a little one you've taken
Everywhere I turn it's darker still

What is it Lord that you want
And that I am not seeing?
What in my innocent prayers
Am I failing to say?
Never before have I questioned the truth of your being
Never once have I dared
Never until today

All of a tremble
I stand on the edge of confusion
Who is to save me
If into the darkness I fall?
Now that I need more than ever my Lord to be near me
Do you hear when I call?
Are you there after all?

You have to be there, you have to
My life I have placed in thy keep
And without you I am drifting on a dark and rising sea
You have to be there, you have to
Without you I'd drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand

Who when I die will throw open his arms to receive me?
Who will believe me and take me into his embrace?
And when I go to my rest, who will watch me and wake me?
When my time comes at last, will you grant me your grace?
I am so small of this Earth, I am nothing without you
Daring to doubt you at all turns a knife in my heart
Little by little I'm losing my way in the shadows
I am losing my home and the world fall apart

You do have to be there, you have to
My life I have placed in thy keep
And without you I am drifting on a dark and rising sea
You have to be there, you have to
Without you I'd drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand

And without you I am drifting on a dark and rising sea
You have to be there, you have to
Without you I'd drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand

Love It When You Call

length: 3:37
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
But you never call at all

I found a switch
Turned it on
I hit the ditch
And carried on
I was so near
Now you're so far
Are you quite sure
Just who you are

O I I I I I
O you could chose a friend but you don't seem to have the time
O I I I I I
I wonder if you ever get to say what's on your mind
O take a little time, yeah take a little time

I love it when you call
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
So what's the complication it's only conversation
I love it when you call
But you never call at all

Remember me, I used to be the best time buddy
Who you couldn't wait to see
But getting old, it takes its toll
And hearts getting broken leads to people growing cold

O I I I I I
Im flipping with a coin that's got a tail on either side
O I I I I I
Im gonna be the one who makes you stop and realise
You could have it all
We should have it all

I love it when you call (She loves when you call)
I love it when you call (She loves when you call)
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
So what's the complication it's only conversation
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
(She loves when you call
She loves when you call)

Yea I wonder where you been
Yea I wonder who you seen
And I hope you find your train
When you do a living and hope it's all it seems

I love it when you call
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
So what's the complication it's only conversation
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
I love it when you call
But you never call at all

Save Me

It started off so well
They said we made a perfect pair
I clothed myself in your glory and your love
How I loved you
How I cried...
The years of care and loyalty
Were nothing but a sham it seems
The years belie we lived a lie
I love you till I die
Save me save me save me
I can't face this life alone
Save me save me save me...
I'm naked and I'm far from home

The slate will soon be clean
I'll erase the memories
To start again with somebody new
Was it all wasted
All that love? ...
I hang my head and I advertise
A soul for sale or rent
I have no heart I'm cold inside
I have no real intent
Save me save me save me
I can't face this life alone
Save me save me save me...
I'm naked and I'm far from home

Each night I cry I still believe the lie
I love you till I die
Save me save me save me
Don't let me face my life alone
Save me save me ooh...
I'm naked and I'm on my own
Save me save me save me
I'm naked and I'm far from home

Diamonds Are Forever

length: 3:05
Diamonds are forever,
They are all I need to please me,
They can stimulate and tease me,
They won't leave in the night,
I've no fear that they might desert me.
Diamonds are forever,
Hold one up and then caress it,
Touch it, stroke it and undress it,
I can see every part,
Nothing hides in the heart to hurt me.

I don't need love,
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love's gone,
They'll l___er on.

Diamonds are forever,
Sparkling round my little finger.
Unlike men, the diamonds linger;
Men are mere mortals who
Are not worth going to your grave for.

I don't trust love
Fancy words will not sway me
Diamonds never betray me
And when love's gone
They'll l___er on.

I don't need love,
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love's gone,
They'll l___er on.

Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Forever and ever.

("Diamonds Are Forever" - Shirley Bassey )

A hand above the water
An angel reaching for the sky
Is it raining in heaven -
Do you want us to cry'
And everywhere the broken-hearted
On every lonely avenue
No-one could reach them
No-one but you
One by one

Only the good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
And life goes on
Without you
Another tricky situation
A get to drawning in the blues
And I find myself thinkin'
Well - what would you do'
Yes! - it was such an operation
Forever paying every due

Hell, you made a sensation
You found a way through - and
One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
We'll remember -
Forever
And now the party must be over
I guess we'll never understand
The sense of your leaving

Was it the way it was planned'
And so we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And I ain't never, never sayin' goodbye
One by one
Only the good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
Cryin' for nothing
Cryin' for no-one
No-one but you

I Loved a Butterfly

length: 3:10
writer: Brian May, Roger Taylor, Paul Rodgers
Once I loved a b___erfly
Don't wonder how, don't ask me why
But I believed what I'd been told
"All things that glitter can't be gold"

Ooooo ooo yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Those jealous minds conspired to say
Just let that creature fly away
How can it be she has it all
Her pride is headed for a fall

Ooooo ooo yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Oh Lord, what races we run
Seeking our place in the sun
Reaching and hoping we'll find the right one

Now every day a new joy brings
My b___erfly grew golden wings
It seems we find as we grow old
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooooo ooo yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold

So let us mind what's there to see
Before our hearts become too cold
In spite of all that we've been told
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooooo ooo yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooooo ooo yeah
Some things that glitter
May be gold
