The beginning saw existence of a chosen dream
But then came pain (L)
With energy striking on those she knew would uncover her lies (L)
She felt she must destroy everything that we had prayed for
So she sent shameful claim in her lies (L)
She wants us to be what's going on in her mind

Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.
Music takes you round and round and round and round and round, (L)
Hold on to the love. (L)
Nahhh Nah Nah Nah

Hold on to the love (L)
...We are smiling.

She wants us to be what's going on in her mind. (L)
If she is to take over she must prevent unity. (L)
But oh how cold her life must be.
She knows she must destroy everything that we had prayed for.
So here comes shameful claim in her lies. (L)

(L)
Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.
Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold onto the love.
Smiling again... (solo)
Hold on to the love.

Nahhh Nah Nah Nah (L)
Hold on
Nahhh Nah Nah Nah (L)
Hold on
Nahhh Nah Nah Nah (L)
Nahhh Nah Nah Nah (L)
Hold on
Nahhh Nah Nah Nah (L)
Hold on... (L)
Hold on to the love.

(L)
The music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.

Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.
Hold on to the love.

Hold on...
Round and round and round and round and round,

Hold on to the love (L)

Go round, go round but hold on to the love. (L)
Hold on to the love. (L)

(L)
Music takes you round and round and round and round and round,
Hold on to the love.

Go round.
Go round.
Hold on to the love (L)
So hard for me to try and tell you how I feel.

Ah...no no.. no love.
Go round.
Gonna hold on.
Go round yeah.
But hold on to love.
The music takes you round.
It takes you round and round and round,
But hold on to love.
Hold on.
Hold on to love.
Hold on.

Sorrow.....(faintly)

One two
One two three four
I'll kiss that away

Both of them swam from a northern blue sky
Smile on their faces they entered their doom like they knew
If their world should end they won't care about that anyway

I jade the water and I burn the fire...
Ooh..... .....I burn the fire...

Nuclear chemicals making their doom like you knew,
If the world should end you won't care about that anyway.
Maybe that's the way you live your life but I know,
Life... It don't always live that way.

(L)
Jade,
A shade of pain and then we die.
Jade,
A shade of pain and then we die.
Jade,
A shade of pain and then we die.
But it's just the way...

Maybe that's the way you live you life but I know...
...you live... your... life...

Life... You see it don't always live that way

(L)
Jade,
A shade of pain and then we die.
Jade,
A shade of pain and then we die... Oh why...
Jade,
A shade of pain and then we die.

Maybe that's the way... (L)
Maybe that's the way, but it don't always live that way

Now that I understand the beauty of what they've left to hand me down.
When you need a place to live and no one understands you.
And all you want to do.
Is to cry out loud.
But you don't know how.
No way, no-one,
No-one understands.
The hand that strikes.
When just a touch of love is all the problem needed,
And when you hurt someone so much that still they die loving you.
And all you want to do,
Is to cry out loud.
But you don't know how,
Jade...

Jade (L)
A shade of pain and then the memory dies.
Jade (L)

Ohh no no.... ...and then, and then we die die... die, die...
A shade of pain and then we die

Jade...
But you don't know how,

Until you try some how,
Jade...

Like you don't know how
Jade...

But you'll try somehow.
Jade... ...and then we die.

We will find a way,
Letting the sun go down.
Maybe we'll find a way,
Holding the sun.
We will find a way,
Letting our life go by.

I tell you we'll find a way,

Holding the sun.............
The sun...

Crazy

length: 4:48
writer: Seal, Guy Sigsworth
In a church, by the face
He talks about the people going under

Only child know

A man decides after seventy years
That what he goes there for, is to unlock the door
While those around him criticize and sleep
And through a fractal on a breaking wall
I see you my friend, and touch your face again
Miracles will happen as we trip

But we're never gonna survive, unless
We get a little crazy
No we're never gonna survive, unless
We are a little crazy

Crazy yellow people walking through my head
One of them's got a gun, to shoot the other one
And yet together they were friends at school
Ohh, get it, get it, get it, get it no no

If all were there when we first took the pill
Then maybe, then maybe, then maybe, then maybe
Miracles will happen as we speak

But we're never gonna survive unless
We get a little crazy
No we're never gonna survive unless
We are a little crazy
No no, never survive, unless we get a little bit

Oh, a little bit
Oh, a little bit

Oh
Oh

Amanda decides to go along after seventeen years

Oh darlin'
In a sky full of people, only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy
In a world full of people, only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy, crazy
In a heaven of people there's only some want to fly
Ain't that crazy
Oh babe, oh darlin'
In a world full of people there's only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy, isn't that crazy, isn't that crazy, isn't that crazy

But were never gonna survive unless, we get a little crazy
No were never gonna to survive unless we are a little
But were never gonna survive unless, we get a little crazy
No were never gonna to survive unless, we are a little, crazy
No no, never survive unless, we get a little bit

And then you see things
The size of which youve never known before

They'll break it

Someday, only child know

Them things
The size of which youve never known before

Someday...
Someway...
Someday...
Someway...
Someday...
Someway...
Someday...

I feel better.

Whoa, Whoa
Because you came to stay,
I almost threw my life away.
Thinking of what might be,
If I lose...
My destiny...

Would I feel better than I might be,
Would I see clearer than my eyes would see,
Oh I, if I showed I love you angel?

Like a square in a circle,
I try to find another way to win.
I try to make better way.
To the castle that I make,
Where the moon lights the way,
And it's invisible by day.
I hear tempatation sing yeah!
Just let go and I will take you there.

Now would I feel better than I might be?
Would I see clearer than my eyes would see, yeah?

Oh I, If I showed I love you angel yeah...?
If I fell in love with angel?
If I showed I love you angel...? oh ih oh ah o wahh...

Now would I feel better than I might be,
Would I see clearer than my eyes would see, yeah...

Oh I, If I showed I love you angel...?
If I took a piece of angel...?
If I fell in love with angel...oh....?

Life is hard in a circle,
Espcially when you think you've gone insane,
And all you get from love is lots of pain.
I should have known better...

Better...
Better...
Better...
Better...

Better........

If tried I don't think I could end it better this way,
All I have is a photograph.
And if loneliness can hurt as much as being cold.

When you smile you make my world resolve and you take over,
Wild laces with diamonds in your hair,
When you smile you make my world resolve and you take over my pain,

I understand,
You need a change.
When you make that change,
Don't look to see
I'm alright.

Now that I look at you in different light

Change the chair
A violet unicorn to me that's alright

I understand,
You need a change

The world will elevate you. The world will elevate you.
And when you make that change the world will elevate you

And if I told you then that I could cry,
Would you take my tears and wash the sun rise?
A man afraid has no shame

So when you take those tears don't look to see I'm alright
Look to see I'm alright

When you take those tears don't look to see I'm alright
Look to see I'm alright

How can I tell you?
How can I explain?
