 Debut 
Throwback 04:39
I am the throwback

But you don't know I walk amongst you every day
I don't need moonlight
Or any secret word to make the change in me

I don't know what you see in your rules
In conversation or in delicate feelings of romance

If you know some place I can go
Then I ask you lead me to the door

In deepest midnight
That time of night when even dogs believe in ghosts
I walk the backstreets
Of every dirty city searching for the route

That leads me back to where I belong
I don't know how but I'm trapped in the wrong time

If you know some place I can go
Then I ask you lead me to the door

Nobody sees me no one believes me
Nobody understands the words that I say

Tell me you see me say you believe me
Tell me you understand and I will be free - oh

I guess I don't fit the times
I'm just a throwback
I'm trapped but still I search for a clue
From far away I hear the call
Come on back to me

I am the throwback
I have no use for anything I see
I'd like to find a country
Where no one else has ever been before

I don't know what you're wanting from life
I just don't understand your tricks and your slyness

If you know some place I can go
Then I ask you lead me to the door

(I'm just a throwback)
(I'm just a throwback) I'm just a throwback
(I'm just a throwback) Don't need no moonlight
(I'm just a throwback) I'm just a throwback

I'll be waiting 05:56
Night and once again I hear you calling

In my mind you speak the words I long to hear
I see your face can even feel your breathing
Though I know that you are never really there

If I had been born bolder you would be truly next to me

So then
I'll be waiting I'll be waiting
I'm waiting just for you

To stroke your hair and feel your arms around me
To talk of things we did or we would do
Would be the kind of magic I'd believe in
But there's some things even wizards cannot do

If I had been born bolder I wouldn't need a magic wand

So then
I'll be waiting I'll be waiting
I'd give up all for you
What else can I do
I'm waiting just for you

We stand together in the evening sun
Unspoken thoughts we share as one
Golden light on distant mountains
Slowly fades as surely as the light of dreams

Don't think about tomorrow
In the darkness I can still believe you're here
If the power of thought can give a vision substance
Then in truth you are alive and close to me

If I had been born bolder I would take you in my arms
Who's to stop me reaching for you the only one is me

So then
I'll be waiting I'll be waiting
I'd give up all for you
What else can I do
I only dream of you
What else can I do
I'm waiting just for you
What else can I do

I'll be waiting

Queen of darkness 04:27
If you want me to I will be your fairy princess

Your dream of romance
If you ask me then I can be your queen of darkness
Take you below

It don't matter at all
Devil or priestess - teacher or fool
What you want will be what you receive
I am the answer to all of your dreams

If you wanted a creature from another dimension
I'm the answer
If you wanted a reason for an endless conflict
I'm the one

It don't matter at all
Devil or priestess - teacher or fool
What you want will be what you receive
I am the answer to all of your dreams

I can be your nightmare
And then I'll take you places you didn't mean to go
Or take a long look
Into the future
I'll tell you many things that you didn't want to know

If you want me to I will be your humble servant
Need your protection
If you ask me then I can be your fearless fighter
Your Joan of Arc

It don't matter at all
Devil or priestess - teacher or fool
What you want will be what you receive
I am the answer to all of your dreams

Build me up - bring me down
Put me back on my feet again
Please leave me alone

If you want me to I will be your fairy princess
Your dream of romance
If you ask me then I can be your queen of darkness
Take you below

It don't matter at all
Devil or priestess - teacher or fool
What you want will be what you receive
I am the answer to all of your dreams

Build me up - bring me down
Put me back on my feet again
Please leave me - please leave me alone

 Debut 
That night 04:41
I was always insecure

I never was too sure
That what we did that night was right
Or very wrong

It was never in dispute
It was always understood
But I can't leave it there

Now what am I supposed to do about it

Rest your weary head with mine
I'll take you through the night
And bring you to the dawn in hope

But don't turn your head around
No matter what you see
You cannot return

You're caught by the magnet
Drawn to the light
Like a prisoner you are captured
You are left without a choice

Now it's all because of you
That I don't know what to do
My memory's confused when
I recall that night

Now the coin is in the air
And I don't know if I care too much
Which way it lands

Oh and what am I supposed to do about it

Rest your weary head with mine
I'll take you through the night
And bring you to the dawn in hope

But don't turn your head around
No matter what you see
You cannot return

You're caught by the magnet
Drawn to the light
Like a prisoner you are captured
You are left without a choice - oh

That night Rest your weary head with mine
Take me through the night I'll take you through the night
Take me through the night to the dawn And bring you to the dawn in
hope

It's all because of you But don't turn your head around
I don't know what to do No matter what you see
My memory's confused that night You cannot return

Oh I can't undo that night...

Raincloud 04:40
When private rainclouds form

And tears seem the likely solution
Try to shelter from the storm
Who knows what tomorrow might bring

Now the sun breaks through the dark
And life isn't quite as confusing
Release your cloud of woe
And follow its course with your eyes

Higher higher into the blue sky
Higher higher than the tallest of mountains
Higher higher into the sunlight
Higher higher till it vanishes from view

And I will watch as it goes
And I will follow the cloud till it is gone

Though the past has let you down
Don't be too hard on the future
You can make it through the day
Who knows what tomorrow might bring

Higher higher into the blue sky
Higher higher than the tallest of mountains
Deeper deeper into the distance
It's not too late for you - oh yeah
Higher higher into the sunlight
Higher higher till it vanishes from view

And I will watch as it goes
And I will watch as the cold wind blows
And I will watch as it goes
And I will follow the cloud till it is gone

When private rainclouds form
And tears seem the likely solution
Try to shelter from the storm
Who knows what tomorrow might bring to you
Dream what tomorrow might give to you
Believe what tomorrow might bring

The border 05:52
Dry forever the sun blinds off the whitewashed walls

Unbelieving she looks up from the unswept floor
You don't have to go you don't have to tell me
All that talk of lofty causes wrapped in foolish pride
That's a lie

That you don't have to tell me

I don't wanna hear how wisdom walks beside you
Or how God is inside you again

No wire marks the border
No fence or wall
No town breaks this horizon
Nothing at all

Dust surrounds her the men go hungry for disaster
All they leave behind are
The old and useless and the broken
That never will be mended

I don't wanna hear you're captured by the madness
Of ideas long discredited from other people's minds
They're all lies

That you don't have to tell me

All that comes of this is poverty and hardship
Still you don't absorb a word I say

But now there is a border
A line of blood
Now men patrol the border
But they're dead

Somewhere a bird is flying oh
Somewhere the wind is sighing oh
I hope it brings you comfort
Cos it's surely no good to me
This wind blows me down
and cuts me like a knife

And now the darkness and coldness
That freezes out illusion
Restores the picture gives back the pieces
And lays them on the empty floor

I don't want to hear so you don't have to tell me
How you rewrite history a little every day
Till it's lies

That you don't have to tell me

I don't want to hear how good it really has been
How wonderful the troubles we shared

No I don't want to hear so you don't have to tell me
I don't need your comfort I just need your company

Big man 04:17
The hot seat's vacant cos he gave up the reins

He's kissed his title goodbye run far away
He's gone to ground in some hole - I don't know where
All I know is somehow that I'm big man up here

I don't need your worship
Just need a sacrifice each day
No need to worry
Just want to help in every way

I just don't know what all these levers are for
Well I don't know it but I'm reasonably sure
I've got a red light warning - I don't know why
Maybe it will go away if I close my eyes

I don't need your worship
Just need a sacrifice each day
No need to worry
Just want to help in every way
Help every day
In every way

I don't know what's come over me
I'm really feeling rather strange

I got no time for wisdom cos I'm the fool
I got no time for those who won't obey my rules
Some day I won't be teacher - I don't know when
Ha but I'm gonna please myself until then

I don't need your worship
Just need a sacrifice each day
No need to worry
Just want to help in every way
Help every day
In every way

Don't need your worship
Just need a sacrifice each day
No need to worry
Just want to help in every way
Help every day
In every way

A house needs a roof 04:07
Wandering in a daze

Through a cold mechanical maze
I am lost and confused
I am always the loser
You tell me there's a place
Where I can be alive

Is it near is it far is it somewhere between
This land you say exists that I've never seen
Call me please talk to me tell me the truth
I need to believe like a house needs a roof
Is it strange is it wonderful I need to know
Do you have a picture that you can show
The minute to capture the moment has come
The minute to capture the moment has come

It's easy to believe
But less easy to imagine
I've grown so used to not coping
Waiting eternally hoping
Wishes come and go
But this one will stay I know
Could the time for adventure be
Just around the corner

Is it near is it far is it somewhere between
The land you say exists that I've never seen
Call me please talk to me tell me the truth
I need to believe like a house needs a roof
Is it strange is it wonderful I need to know
Do you have a picture that you can show
The minute to capture the moment has come
The minute to capture the moment has come

I wonder if it's true
Do I put my faith in you
Do I risk one more failure
To add to this tale
Or do I turn my back
And slowly walk away
Please tell me if you know

Is it near is it far is it somewhere between
The land you say exists that I've never seen
Call me please talk to me tell me the truth
I need to believe like a house needs a roof
Is it strange is it wonderful I need to know
Do you have a picture that you can show
The minute to capture the moment has come
The minute to capture the moment has come

The more I hide it 04:31
The more I dream of you

The less you want me to
The more I need to hold you
The less you seem to care

If I knew what I was meant to do
Then I'd be doing it all the time
If I could find the key
I'd keep the doorway open wide

But I will stay with you
Forever if you want me to
As long as there's a heaven
And that's a long long time

To yearn without reward
To plan and hope in vain
It's you that has the power you know
To soothe and end this pain

Another season passes
But the sky is always grey
Autumn leaves and summer breezes
Can't bring on a change

But I will stay with you
Forever if you want me to
As long as there's a heaven
and that's a long long time

The more I hide it the more it shows
The more confused I feel
And on my own alone
Tell me what am I supposed to do?

It's so hard to understand
What means so much to me
What fills my heart with fire
Will only leave you cold

I wonder what you're thinking
As we play the game again
I wonder if you knew my thoughts
You'd still want me to say

That I will stay with you
Forever if you want me to
As long as there's a heaven
And that's a long long time

The more I hide it the more it shows
The more confused I feel
And on my own alone
Tell me what am I supposed to do?

The more I hide it the more it shows...

Diamonds aren't so hard 05:12
(And diamonds aren't so hard to find)


Don't let it bring you down
Your woman's gone and left you
The taxman's here he's knocking on your door - oh

Don't let it bring you down
Your brand new house is burning
They're dumping toxic waste in your backyard - oh
Your next door neighbour's gone and won the pools
The life's so bad you wish that it was all over - over

You and I
Could leave this all behind
Dream a little
Leave ourselves behind

Come with me
Where dragons rule the air
And diamonds aren't so hard to find
And come what may
Heroes never fail
And time stands still
No matter if you're young or old

Don't let it bring you down
Nothing lasts for ever
Even female movie stars grow old - oh

We try to break the rules and never age
We try so hard but everything's in vain
Then one day you wake and find that it's all over - over

You and I
Could leave this all behind
Dream a little
Leave ourselves behind

Come with me
Where dragons rule the air
And diamonds aren't so hard to find
And come what may
Heroes never fail
And time stands still
No matter if you're young or old

So come with me
Where dragons rule the air
And diamonds aren't so hard to find...
