    Love Is A Stranger

    Love is a stranger
    In an open car
    To tempt you in
    And drive you far away

    And I want you
    And I want you
    And I want you so
    It’s an obsession

    Love is a danger
    Of a different kind
    To take you away
    And leave you far behind
    And love love love
    Is a dangerous drug
    You have to receive it
    And you still can’t
    Get enough of the stuff

    It’s savage and it’s cruel
    And it shines like destruction
    Comes in like the flood
    And it seems like religion
    It’s noble and it’s brutal
    It distorts and deranges
    And it wrenches you up
    And you’re left like a zombie

    And I want you
    And I want you
    And I want you so
    It’s an obsession

    It’s guilt edged
    Glamorous and sleek by design
    You know it’s jealous by nature
    False and unkind
    It’s hard and restrained
    And it’s totally cool
    It touches and it teases
    As you stumble in the debris

    And I want you
    And I want you
    And I want you so
    It’s an obsession

    I've Got An Angel

    I’ve got an angel
    Oh I’ve got an angel
    The power of imagination
    Goes right to my head
    The power of imagination
    Goes right to my head
    (And I said)
    Time is time is time to kill
    Time is time is time to kill

    Wrap It Up

    I’ve been watching you for days now baby
    I just love your sexy ways now baby
    You now my love will never stop now baby
    Just put your loving in my box baby

    Wrap it up – I’ll take it

    No more will I shop around baby
    You know I’ve got the best thing in town now baby

    I’ve seen all I wanna see baby
    What your loving means to me now baby

    Wrap it up – I’ll take it

    I’m gonna treat you like the queen you are
    Give you sweet things from my candy jar
    You’ve got treats you ain’t ever used
    Give it give it to me
    It won’t get abused

    I Could Give You (A Mirror)

    How can you be so cold
    With my arms to hold you?
    How can you be so cold
    With my arms to enfold you?

    I could give you – A mirror
    To show you – Dissappointments
    I could give you – A history
    Could you ever listen in to me?

    How can you be so cold
    When there’s a fire burning?
    How can you be so cold
    When all the ice is melting?

    I could give you – A mirror
    To show you – Dissappointments
    I could give you – A history
    Could you ever listen in to me?

    The Walk

    I could be contended
    I don’t need to suffer
    You’re beautiful
    Good to talk to
    You make an impression
    To take my attention
    And when you touch my skin
    I smell disaster

    Step away – walk away
    All I want is the real thing
    (nothing but the real thing)

    Walking on pavements
    We collect in bars
    Asleep in the houses
    So alone –
    Looking inside herself
    She breaks the glass
    Turns her head backwards
    She’s fallen down again

    Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something

    Some of them want to use you
    Some of them want to get used by you
    Some of them want to abuse you
    Some of them want to be abused

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something

    Hold your head up, keep your head up, movin’ on
    Hold your head up, movin’ on, keep your head up, movin’ on
    Hold your head up, movin’ on, keep your head up, movin’ on
    Hold your head up, movin’ on, keep your head up

    Some of them want to use you
    Some of them want to get used by you
    Some of them want to abuse you
    Some of them want to be abused

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree?
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something

    Jennifer

    Jennifer with your orange hair
    Jennifer with your green eyes
    Jennifer in your dress of deepest purple
    Jennifer – Where are you tonight?
    Jennifer – Where are you tonight?

    (Underneath the water / Underneath the water)

    This Is The House

    Esta es la casa (This is the house)
    Este es el cerro (This is the hill)
    Esta es la historia (This is the story)
    Es algo chiquitito (It’s a little thing)

    This is the house
    This is the hill
    This is the story – it’s a little thing
    A lock of hair
    An invisible smoke trail
    Nothing there but the dust and the rust
    oh/oh/oh everything changes

    This is your picture (it’s in black and white)
    This is the family having a party
    There’s a crack in the ceiling
    And there’s an open door
    Nothing there but the dust and the rust
    oh/oh/oh everything changes

    Somebody Told Me

    Somebody told me
    Somebody told me
    Somebody told me
    Something about you

    I didn’t believe it
    I couldn’t believe it
    I’m still reeling
    ’cause I just can’t take the blow

    Well there’s laughter and love
    And there’s a lot of pain
    I never wanna see your
    Pretty face again

    Full of forgiveness
    You’re just twisted
    I’m a silly little saint
    With a halo of smiles
    But it makes no difference

    This City Never Sleeps

    You can hear the sound
    Of the underground trains
    You know it feels like distant thunder

    You know there’s so many people
    Living in this house
    And don’t even know their names

    I guess it’s just a feeling – in the city)

    Walls so thin I can almost
    Hear them breathing
    And if I listen in
    I feel my own heart beating

    (I guess it’s just a feeling – in the city)
