LYRICS ON 'THEN AND AGAIN'


JULIET

Juliet,
Your Romeo won't come tonight
Even though you call,
He's not home
Where anyone might find him out
It happens all the time


So Juliet
When after all your tears are cried
And time has dried your eyes
You'll go on
Taking life at each turns' surprise
It happens to us all


And the ferryman takes you over this tide calling
"Every man's Casanova!"
Sometimes, a story shines
Shines


Juliet
In spite of all his foolish pride
You still wonder why
It seems so long, since love was lost without a trace
But it happens all the time


And the ferryman takes you over this tide calling
"Every man's Casanova!"
Sometimes, a story shines
Shines.



CONNECTION

You'd better get yourself together
If you want to catch the train
You may regret the step forever
New connections just the same
If you say I'm doing better
I'd neglect to say I thought,
You'd better believe in the director
'Cause he's the money you pray to the Lord


Made a connection to the music
I knew you tried to make a connection
But the lady passed you by
The lady passed you by


Do I detect at my disposal
Was that jet we met before
Advice sent in new proposals
If we're quick we'll make a score
Bank the change
Curse the debtor
You can forget to place the bet
You can confuse the tax inspector
Just don't be short when he comes to collect


Made a connection to the music
I knew you tried to make a connection
But the lady passed you by
The lady passed you by


You'd better get yourself together
If you want to catch the train
You may regret the step forever
New connections just the same
If you say I'm doing better
I'd neglect to say I thought,
You'd better believe in the director
'Cause he's the money you pray to the Lord


Made a connection to the music
I knew you tried to make a connection
But the lady passed you by
The lady passed you by



IN EXILE

Mm m
I play a waiting game
It's based on give and take
If your passion just won't set you free
Ooee just come on back to me


And I will help you find
You can smile
You're a part of all I feel
Why cry
Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled


Win or lose
You're here to take a chance
Mm m it's such a song and dance
Catch your dreams
Before they fly away
Ooee I'll get you back someday


And I will help you find
You can smile
You're a part of all I feel
Why cry
Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled


Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled


Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled


Mm m
I've played this waiting game
Oo oo It's based on give and take
If your passion just won't set you free
Ooee just come on back to me


And I will help you find
You can smile
You're a part of all I feel
Why cry
Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled


Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled


Share in my life
For a short while
Or I'm exiled



BEGGARS CAN'T BE CHOOSERS

Drawing pictures in the sand
Taking up my time
I'm wishing you were mine
But beggars can't be choosers


Run it up and let it down
Take your time and look around
Forget you've been a loser
That's alright it makes two of us


Making time to read the news
Getting out of town
You're feeling low and down
You must do what's expected


All your plans have fallen through
Just castles in the air
And cities in the sand
You're left with burning ruins


Take a break from fighting bad
And think of times you've passed
'Cos love departs so fast
And leaves you only lonely


Beggars can't be choosers.



LONE BELIEVER

Strange notions for a boy to have
Time in motion never worried my Dad
Staying home in case my Maker calls
Painting magic circles on the walls


Lone Believer
I'm saying the Earth is round


Light the shade with my crazy scrawl
Galileo, I hear you call
When they burnt you at the stake had you seen it all
'Cos I'm livin' in the Third World War
And I don't see what they're fighting for
And in 1984 I'll be thirty-one.


Smoking potions makes a good boy wrong
While "Mothers' Little Helper" carries on
I see them sad and loaded on the street
So afraid of landing on their feet


Lone Believer
I'm saying the Earth is round


Light the shade with my crazy scrawl
Galileo, I hear you call
When they burnt you at the stake had you seen it all
'Cos I'm livin' in the Third World War
And I don't see what they're fighting for
And in 1984 I'll be thirty-one.


I'm leaving my bones to a heart foundation
I'm leaving my soul to eternity
I'm taking control of my situation
But leaving the future to Destiny


So light the shade with my crazy scrawl
Galileo, I hear you call
When they burnt you at the stake had you seen it all
'Cos I'm livin' in the Third World War
And I don't see what the fighting's for
And in 1984 I'll be thirty-one


Lone Believer
I'm saying the Earth is round


So light the shade with my crazy scrawl
Galileo, I hear you call
When they burnt you at the stake had you seen it all
'Cos I'm livin' in the Third World War
And I don't see what they're fighting for
And in 1984 I'll be thirty-one


I'm saying the Earth is round



CROSSED A LONELY WEEKEND

Working on a weak man
Ladyís got it all planned
Love made on the Richter scale
On a par with the ladies who work in the avenue


Easy money comes a-knocking on your door
Sheís an undercover agent with a hard core
Youíd never ask her allegiance
ĎCause you know she knows the score
And youíve been through that before
Easy money canít be bought
But youíre caught
ĎCause late at night when youíre reaching for a friend
Easy money comes again
And youíre lost because youíre not the only one
Everybodyís crossed a lonely weekend
Everybodyís crossed a lonely weekend


So take your curtain call
While he wonders where you are tonight
Ladyís lover never crosses her mind under red light
Heís looking for an anchor
To keep him from the world to come
But itís funny that Easy money should be the one


Easy money comes a-knocking on your door

ĎCause late at night when youíre reaching for a friend

Ladyís lover never crosses her mind under red light

To keep him from the world to come
Itís funny that Easy money should be the one




OLD CAMPAIGNERS

Shine me a light
'Cause Iíve got my pride
I donít belong to you
I never liked being just bylines
There was a time I made the news
But now I believe in you


Sunny days and balmy nights
Summers gone before I knew
Old campaigners singing
Sunday mornings
And Iím taking time to hear them through
That I might believe in you


Sunny days and balmy nights
Summers gone before I knew
Old campaigners singing
Sunday mornings
And Iím taking time to hear them through
That I might believe in you


These younger guys
Have got no time to wait
Theyíll get to be my age some day
There was a time I had too much to say
And some say youíre better off that way
But now I believe in you


Sunny days and balmy nights
Summers gone before I knew
Old campaigners singing
Sunday mornings
And Iím taking time
to hear them through That I might believe in you


Sunny days and balmy nights
Summers gone before I knew
Old campaigners singing
Sunday mornings
And Iím taking time to hear them through
That I might believe in you


That I might believe in you
That I might believe in you...



I CAN FEEL YOUR LOVE

Baby, baby, baby
What you gonna do now?
All my lines run dry


And I can feel your love
I can feel your love


Oh did it hit you harder
Than at first it seemed
'Cause time is lifeís illusion
When youíre living on your dreams
Oh, and your knight in shining armourís not so clean
But heíll live beyond his means to bring you love


And I can feel your love
I can feel your love


Oh did it hit you harder
Than at first it seemed
ĎCause time is lifeís illusion
When youíre living on your dreams
Oh, and your knight in shining armourís not so clean
But heíll live beyond his means to bring you love


And I can feel your love
I can feel your love...



SWEET WIVES AND AMERICAN GIRLS

Sweet wives and American girls
Never the twain shall meet
But I need your love
I should have let you in
Look at the state Iím in
Thinkiní of balmy nights that might have been
If Iíd given in


I canít live without you baby
Without your love
The whole worldís crazy
I'm marking time
To hide the miles that come between
Your love and me


I canít live without you baby
Without your love
The whole worldís crazy
Marking time
To hide the miles that come between
Your love and me


Night coaches that arrive and then leave
Man, this airport scene
Takes its toll on me
I shouldnít let you know
That I miss you so
Why are we all alone on the telephone
When I could be home


I canít live without you baby
Without your love
The whole worldís crazy
I'm marking time
To hide the miles that come between
Your love and me


I canít live without you baby
Without your love
The whole worldís crazy
I'm marking time
To hide the miles that come between
Your love and me


Sweet wives and American girls
Never the twain shall meet

Look at the state Iím in
Thinkiní of balmy nights that might have been
If Iíd given in

Without your love
The whole worldís crazy
Marking time
To hide the miles that come between
Your love and me



NUMBER'S COMING UP

Ooh, you canít get older
Without losing some of the shine
While the engineís ticking over
Youíve got so much on your mind


Flares in the sky
Are a cause for concern
While I, like a ship of the line, float by


Arthur C. Clarke, Iím under your spell
The tide is turning over H.G. Wells
Sacred secrets time will only tell
When your numberís coming up,
When your numberís coming up


And only kisses and caresses can heal
Only kisses and caresses can heal
Honey, honey kisses and caresses can heal
When your number's coming up
When your number's coming up


And only kisses and caresses can heal
Honey honey kisses and caresses can heal
Only kisses and caresses can heal
When your number's coming up
When your number's coming up


Ooh, you make it easy
For me to stay and hold you tight
Though Iím awake
I feel so dreamy
Will tomorrow take the mood from tonight


Give it a try
Weíve got nothing to lose
Donít hide
Thereís no harm in a few good times
Aye


And only kisses and caresses can heal
Only kisses and caresses can heal
Honey, honey kisses and caresses can heal
When your number's coming up
When your number's coming up


Arthur C. Clarke Iím under your spell
The tide is turning over H.G. Wells
Sacred secrets only time will tell
When your numberís coming up
When your numberís coming up



WONDER WHAT YOU'RE DOING NOW

I heard that your luck went West
In the meantime youíre at no fixed address
But on the off chance
Iím holding your mail


Iím word blind
Iíve got nothing to say
Just the same old lines keep coming out to play
Like an old routine
That everybodyís seen before


I think of you from time to time
I wonder what youíre doing now
Iíve never really changed my mind
But Iíve been finding out
Love is not an easy ride


So baby won't you airmail my heart?
Baby won't you airmail my heart?
Baby won't you airmail my heart,
So I can start again...wow!
If I could start again...Wow


I thought that this feeling would pass
Iíd be first to forget
But as the time has elapsed
I just long to say
Come back Iím climbing the walls


I think of you from time to time
I wonder what youíre doing now
Iíve never really changed my mind
But Iíve been finding out
Love is not an easy ride


So baby won't you airmail my heart...



BORDER LINERS

Oh babe,
Where's it gonna end?
I live my life by queues.
My mind's something to say,
But I leave it up to you,
While the 'border liners' are stirring the poison again,
I'm a night line writer,
Glad to be over the fence.


And your childhood bravery does nothing for your cause.
But if you love your lady
You won't feel the need for more.
She won't ask you to explain if you call her.


My child,
Love is nothing new,
It takes you day by day.
But if you laugh at me and make me feel a fool
I know my heart would break.


As the 'border liners' are stirring the poison again,
I'm a night line writer,
Glad to be over the fence.


And your childhood bravery does nothing for your cause.
But if you love your lady
You won't feel the need for more.
She won't ask you to explain if you call her.


As the 'border liners' are stirring the poison again,
I'm a night line writer,
Glad to be over the fence.


Oh babe,
Running after you
I need your love so now.
'Cause all roads point to the truth and I feel what the world needs now
Is a little happiness for her sons and her daughters.


'Cause the 'border liners' are stirring the poison again,
I'm a night line writer,
Glad to be over the fence,
Glad to be over the fence,
Glad to be over the fence.



FALLING APART

How can I live without you 'round?
Itís too late to tell you now.
I know
Heaven must love you
Wonít let you go
My Love
Itís me
Thinking about you


You know youíll have to break my heart
ĎCause thatís how the last act starts
I know heaven must love you
Wonít let you go
My Love
Itís me
Thinking about you


How many sleepless nights
Will I get over?
How many sleepless nights
Will I get older?
I'm falling apart
Falling apart, falling apart, Iím falling apart
Falling apart, Iím falling apart, Iím falling apart


I know heaven must love you
Wonít let you go
My Love
Itís me
Thinking about you


Itís too late to rock the age
Iím borne upon the wings of change
I know
Heaven must love you
Wonít let you go
My Love
Itís me
Thinking about you


How many sleepless nights
Will I get over?
How many sleepless nights
Will I get older?
I'm falling apart
Falling apart, falling apart, I'm falling apart
Falling apart, Iím falling apart, Iím falling apart


I know heaven must love you
Wonít let you go
My Love
Itís me
Thinking about you


Falling apart, falling apart, I'm falling apart
Falling apart, falling apart, Iím falling apart...
