WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC (Spice) I donít mind talking, girl But thereís a time and place Right now weíre alone, yeah But itís just gone to waste Look up and see the moon Slide down the clouds The radio is playing softly now So if you talk above a wisdom Itís too loud What about the music, babe What about the moon Itís a shame if we talk music Weíll be leaving soon You keep on talking, girl We can talk on the phone We should be kissing, babe Now that weíre alone Though when theyíre singing Love songs to the moon You know itís love That makes the flowers bloom But you keep saying things you Could tell me in a crowded room What about the music, yeah What about the moon, babe Itís a shame if we talk music Weíll be leaving soon What about the music Sweet soul music What about the moon Hey, what about the moon, babe We are loving and I canít lose it Weíll be leaving soon What about the music, yeah What about the moon I said itís a shame if we talk music Weíll be leaving soon What about the music, yeah What about the moon Itís a shame if we talk music Weíll be leaving soon What about the music, yeah What about the moon Itís a shame if we talk music Weíll be leaving soon What about the music What about the moon Itís a shame if we talk music Weíll be leaving soon BORN IN A TRUNK (Spice) You were born in a trunk Everyone talkiní about you You were born in a trunk Where would they be without you You better move off the rails People begin to look subways You better move off the rails You wonít even listen to my way Iím liviní in shame People say I donít matter Iím liviní in shame You were born in a trunk Everyone talkiní about you You were born in a trunk Where would they be without you You better move off the rails People begin to look subways You better move off the rails You wonít even listen to my way HERE AM I I sit in my sunny chair With my head held low I know the reason Iím dreaming Itís really been fun But where is there left to go Save to give my life a new meaning And if by chance Youíd come my way Iíll have to say Here am I, give me love Here am I, give me love How was I to know Your heart was unsatisfied When you never troubled to tell me No wish that you made to me Ever was denied I played it just the way That it should be But then you turned And walked away I have to say Here am I, give me love Here am I, give me love Here am I, give me love I imagine I must sit here Till the winter comes And just watch the days Growing shorter To gather in dust wonít go Till my thinkingís done And I walk from this troubled water By then my need wonít be so bad And Iíll gladly say Here am I, give me love Here am I, give me love ... PROUD WORDS Stand up and fight Or you'll lose your right Do you wanna stand in a line Fightin' hard to hold on to your mind Seek and you'll find Proud words on a dusty shelf Find and you'll seek Just keep on helpiní yourself When the wind of trouble comes Put away your battledrums And stand up and fight Stand up and fight Don't stand in a line Hold on to your mind Seek and you'll find Proud words on a dusty shelf Find and you'll seek Keep on keepiní on helpiní yourself Stand up and fight ... LOVE HATE & FEAR Dream in a lonely room Fly on a star Think of the forcing time Then know where you are Fear is the strongest force Love, love is the key Where is my hatred now? Love rules over me Something I have failed to see The haunted of a memory Darkness keeps my thoughts at bay But I will find my dream one day Hate, hate is my only thought Blame, the blame is on you Why, why, why, why Why did you leave my side? Heaven knows quite a few Something I have failed to see Like a haunted of a memory Darkness keeps my thoughts at bay But I will find my dream one day Dream, yeah ... STONE'S THROW I was a stoneís throw From happiness Feeling love grow in your caress It was like nothing I had felt or seen And I waited impatiently Oh, stoneís throw And I canít stand to see you go You hurt me bad, cut me down But it just donít work without you Without you around It was a short walk Now itís a lonely ride It turned my day Into a lifeless night It was my belief and Now itís my regret Iíve got a one way ticket That I canít accept Oh, just a stoneís throw And I canít stand to see you go You hurt me bad You cut me down But it just donít work without you Without, without, without Without you around Oh, stoneís throw And I canít stand to see you go You hurt me bad, cut me down But it just donít work without you Gotta have you around Gotta have you around ... A FAR BETTER WAY Seeing you here All of my fears seem to Drift right away Seeing you smile Checking out your style I begin to hope youíll stay Stay awhile so we can play Lost in a dream Thatís becaming a nightmare Day by day Itís my love and my life And somewhere between them Thereís a road And itís a far, a far better way Out of nowhere came this vision Of you and me together Looking for a better way Then from nowhere You came running Look out, world Thereís something coming Iíve suddenly found A lot of things to say Now weíll sing our tune together This way itís a whole lot better Weíre out to prove There is a place for love Then from somewhere WeĎll come running Look out, world Thereís something coming I think weíve found A far better way I think weíve found A far better way ...
THE RIVER River, rising to hide Across the midnight Wanderiní westward by daylight Take us and lead us to tomorrow As fast as you come and can flow River, youíre windiní An unending rhythm The sooner keep Moviní to warn him The spirit that keeps Us from sinking Guide us from going astray Point us a way To a shoreline ahead Through the mist and the fog Of this valley of death Too many years we have Walked in a sleep Now weíre awaken and ready fo flee River, we hitchhikers Begginí for mercy Survive us from yesterdayís curses Donít damn us Before you receive us Weíre neediní your face And your trust A RIGHT TO LIVE I must thank Lord In my hour of need Iíve given way to a better man But I ainít been free To push the hour here In this soul of mine Iíve burned my bridges And Iím satisfied The preacherís due here In an hour or so To give me reasons for The things I know I might have been careless and I I might have been blind If Iím the guilty, Iím satisfied Oh woman, why did you Do me wrong? Sending me down and I just canĎt get along When daybreak comes and Iíve reached the end of the line I have a right to live And Iím left to die It all seems so hazy now It seems so long ago She hid the things sheíd done Or things I should know What was I to do for The hurting here inside I kill for love but the ... I have a right to live When Iím left to die Oh, woman I have a right to live ... LET IT RIDE Before I leave town today Well, thereís something That I wanna say That you regret the stormy night You put your eyes on me Well, you cheated on me And you lied And I mustíve had that A thousand times But Iíll be cominí back one day Just you wait and see Oh, yeah, let it ride, let it ride Let it slip, let it slide Ride the night away Let it ride, let it ride Let it slip, let it slide ĎCause Iíll be coming back to stay This time you couldíve let me live But thereís nothing more That I can give Youíve stolen every day in my life And then you threw it away This train Iím gonna ride tonight Is gonna carry me Right out of your sight But Iíll be cominí back some time And then youíre gonna pay Oh wonít you take me tonight Wonít you carry me right to the top Taking me higher You carry me through The things that you know To the end of the line How much higher? The last lap is mine Itís too long as they say You know itís just what will be As youíve waviní goodbye Keep rememberiní why The devil that got you was me Youíre the city where I wanted to be But the lonely spell you put on me Itís time for you to realise That thereís just no way FEELINGS Feelings, empty feelings Prayiní, hopiní, neediní Just when I wanted to hold you Youíre leaviní, youíre leaviní Leaviní, leaviní When we meet Every night in the bar If Iím feeliní alright Weíll get high in your car Then come morning And you will be gone Youíre my five-minute friend And youíve gotta move on And you donít stop me Thinkiní my feelings And Iím hidiní the hurtiní inside And I know how you Set my heart reeliní As I see it and swallow my pride Well, either you donít give a damn Or you donít even care to pretend Or you wonít spare a thought Though you know It must come to an end And Iíve got those feelings ... YOUR LOVE Your love ... Iíve got to do it Gotta find a direction in my life You canít have me through it I know that you do it But itís my fight Why donít you leave me alone To drive down this windiní road Iím alive It just doesnít feel the same For my love for you has changed But your love It never leaves me alone For your love Is in the world of its own But your love It never leaves me alone YouĎre sayiní that you need me But the words donít come easy Just hold on I know that I lied When I told you goodbye Just keep hanginí on Time wonít keep waitingí Iíve gotta do something with my life You canít have me through it But I know that do it But itís my fight VALLEY OF KINGS Iíve been thinkiní about it Iíve been thinkiní a lot to tell you Iíve been thinkiní it over Iíve been thinkiní of How to show you Whoa, my love You, my love Iíve been thinkiní about you Iííve been thinkiní of How to show you Iíve been thinkiní it over Iíve been figuriní how to tell you You, my love You, my love Ainít no secret Yes, itís true I donít know what Iíll do Ainít no secret Guess itís true Iíd be lost without you Ainít no secret Yes, itís true Iíd be lost without you Without you Iíve been thinkiní it over Iííve been thinkiní of How to show you Iíve been thinkiní it over Iíve been figuriní how to tell you You, my love You, my love In the valley of kings ... SPLIT IMAGE Itís the same old line People get to you if they can They take what they find They will change you mind They will fit you into their play And then one day youíll wake up As somebody else Someone they advented A split image Donít let them burn you Split image Donít let them turn you Split image Just keeps cominí back Cominí back, cominí back To who you are And the wrong get born And the right ones just stay away What heís liviní for If the wrong get born And we donít have a word to say And itís so hard to wake up Or in right groove A crack in the mirror Heís come ... Remember who you are HOLY ROLLER I was born an only boy Away from palm of water Never heard of right or wrong I was given words to use But I knew I was different They wanted me to play along How much fear can I keep Locked away inside me Will all these words Disguise my pain When all your scriptures fall And leave us in the open I will survive and try again Here comes the holy roller Here comes the book of life Donít come knockiní round here ĎCause you ainít no friend of mine Here comes the ghost of holy He comes to twist your mind Donít come knockiní round here ĎCause you ainít no friend Ainít no friend of mine What is the price that youíve put On your own salvation Count the costs for saviní souls Where is the sense in all this Door-to-door damantion When youíre just left out in the cold SHE STILL CALLS HIS NAME Summer moonlight shines On a midnight train Lost in emotion she cries To the wind and the rain In silence she feels the breeze No mercy tonight The passion and promise has made Life broken inside She stills calls his name She canít get home She stills calls his name Broken hearted Another town rolls by As a distant rose And wonderiní what she will find When she gets home You, thereís a part in flame But a careless heart Dreams are an open game Will tear you apart She stills calls his name Sheís out of control She stills calls his name Broken hearted One love comes of the rest A bed of roses was a bed of nails Donít take the blame forever Just give it time
