01. No Return

I'm at the point of no return
I'm watching the candle burn
Both ends
There's a lesson we
Both can learn - this time
So if you wanna make my day
There's something
You've gotta say
Now please don't laugh
And turn away - this time
I don't wanna make a fuss
But this is the time for us
And I ain't gonna miss the buss
This time

No return
So there'll be no turning back
Once I know that
You'll be by my side
No return
Maybe you'll give me all the love
That you always felt
You had to hide
No return
I've come a thousand miles
Across the ocean
But that ain't half
As far as my emotion
Now I've reached
The point of no return

While on my way down the avenue
I had to stop for a drink or two
Or three
Now not that I was stalling you
For time
It's just I wanted to feel my best
And I almost passed the test
I need your lovin' to do the rest
This time

No return - so please don't ever do
What you've done
So many times before
No return
Because I've made up my mind
That this time I'll make it
Thru' your door
No return - I rode above the clouds
So far below me
But didn't get as high as
When you hold me
Now I've reached
The point of no return

I'm at the point of no return
I'm watching the candle burn
Both ends
There's a lesson we
Both can learn - this time
I don't wanna make a fuss
But this is the time for us
And I ain't gonna miss the buss
This time

No return
So there'll be no turning back
Once I know that
You'll be by my side
No return
Maybe you'll give me all the love
You always felt you had to hide
No return - I rode above the clouds
So far below me
But didn't get as high as
When you hold me
Now I've reached
The point of no return

No return - so please don't ever do
What you've done
So many times before
No return
Because I've made up my mind
That this time I'll make it
Thru' your door
No return
I've come a thousand miles
Across the ocean
But that ain't half
As far as my emotion
Now I've reached
The point of no return


02. Imagination

Sometimes I'm certain
Sometimes my mind is
Filled with doubt
Some thoughts lay heavy here
Sometimes I think it's figured out
Imagination
Endless voyage of discovery
I'm at once impatient and afraid
Some day you may walk out on me

At least when you're with me
I'm not afraid to live with mystery
I'm sure you know how sad
One night without a dream can be
Imagination, bitter-sweet companion
As my time flies by
Love-hate relation
Hand in hand toward infinity

Lead me here, lead me there
Everywhere if you really dare
Today, tonight, tomorrow
You don't have to take my hand
I'll take it just the way it's planned
Lead on, speed on, I'll follow

When you see me coming
You're gonna know I'm not alone
Me and my imagination
We'll be side by side any way
The wind is blown
Love songs and fantasies
They've kept us busy
Since the day we met
Each new horizon
Reminds us now it's not over yet


03. Feelings

Feelings, empty feelings
Prayin', hopin', needin'
Just when I wanted to hold you
You're leavin', you're leavin'
Leavin', you're leavin'

I remember those magic nights
Those nights when it
All seemed right
But I knew that by mornin'
You'd be gone
And though you tell me
That it's not for long
It ain't easy here holdin' on
You gotta tell me where I stand

'Cause either you don't give a damn
Or you don't even care to pretend
Or you won't spare a thought
Though you know
It must come to an end

You'd better know that
I've made up my mind
I gotta high of a different kind
And it's gonna take me
Where I wanna be
Sure I'll miss ya but I gotta choose
You can't believe that
I came here to lose
And you ain't a winner
That's easy to see

So I'll see you around or I'll write
And I'll send you some love
'Cause where I wanna go
There ain't nothing to do but move


04. Fools

I know this feeling inside
Has just made up my mind
I'm gonna take this chance
And do what's in my heart
You always said that
You'd stand by me
And help me get along
So understand
I must do what's in my heart

I know this feeling inside
Has helped me to carry on
So as the days go by
And the nights that never end
You play the clubs
And you play the game
The next day you will find
You'll have to try and
Please that fool again
Don't you know that

Fools play at games
Don't you know that
Fools play at games
And I know that
I'm not afraid of you

Day after day I feel this way
That I need to be moving on
You know I depend on you
Don't get me wrong
I'll throw the dice and
I play the game
And hope we get along
Even then I won't be fooled again

So I've read your words and
I've signed my name
But I can't make up my mind
If you really care or you're
Playing your games


05. Carry on

Carry on ...

So what can I do, what can I say
Do I have to stand and
Watch you walk away
I know there's got to be
A better way
I just can't go on living for today

I thought I heard a voice
Out on the wind
And I'm sure I heard it say
I'd find a friend
And it said I'd find
The answers in the end
All I gotta do is carry on

Carry on, carry on, the time is flyin'
You need another love
Maybe another town
Carry on, carry on
Don't wait until your hope is gone
When your last chance
Comes round

I'm gonna keep on looking
I won't quit
Aggravation
It ain't gonna hurt a bit
And I believe that
I have seen the last of it
There's nothing left to do
But carry on


06. Won't Have To Wait To Long

It's a quarter to seven
On a Saturday morning
I open my eyes
After the Friday night
I don't worry about
The rain upon my window
'Cause where I'm going
I know the sun will always shine

So now I'm heading away
Down to Rio de Janeiro
I'll be leaving all my
Lonely times behind
And if I'm looking for love in
Rio de Janeiro
There'll be someone there
I know who'll find the time

In this golden place
There's a smiling face
I've got to find
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

My friends are telling me
I'm chasing rainbows
Or searching for the
Gold beneath the sea
But rainbows only shine
When it's been raining
And gold will never
Keep you company

So now I'm wonderin'
What to say in conversation
To the lady of my dreams
That I should meet
If I speak to her
The language of all nations
Then I'm sure that she'd be
Knocked right off her feet

And I know she will
Then I'll love her
Till the end of time
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

Well I've been happy enough in
Rio de Janeiro
I've got a woman here
That I can call my own
It doesn't matter if
I'm living here or there-o
'Cause she used to live
Next door to me back home

So if you're thinking that
I've settled down forever
I'll be telling you
You've made a big mistake
'Cause I'll be heading away
Down to Denver, Colorado
There's a woman there
I've got to try and make

She can fill the hole
In my heart and soul
For a long, long time
And I won't have to wait
Too long before she's mine


07. Out On The Street

Out on the street, dead on my feet
At the mercy of the stone-cold night
It's hard to compete
In a dead-end street
With frustration in your line of sight
Do you ever stop to think
Do you ever stop at all
Do you have the time to feel
And if you do
Do you know the feeling's real

Followed a sign that
Pointed the way
And I found myself
Right back at that start
I like to feel good
I've tried feeling sad
But I can't stand a broken heart
Don't wanna wait till my dyin' day
To realise
I guess I'm lucky in
A strange kinda way
'Cause it's clear before my eyes

A grey cloud they say
Hides a surprise
But it rained until I lost my belief
Just close your eyes
We'll show you the way
But I believe I've lost my faith
One man speaks and one man does
While another soul wields the sword
I hear you all, but I still can't see
Just who it is
Who speaks the chosen word


08. It Ain't Easy

You make it all sound easy
Now you've tasted all my wine
I never wanted to hear the news
That you'd found another man
But it's hard to see
What you want from me
It's not easy to be in-between
It's now up to you to
Make the move this time

But it ain't easy when you
Don't know where to turn
And it ain't easy
But you take the chance
The final chance to learn
Yes, to learn
That it ain't easy when you
Don't know where to turn
And it ain't easy, so you take a look
Another look at life - look at life

'Cause it ain't what you've got
In the palm of your hand
And it's not what you'll get
From another man
That will last you
The rest of your life my friend

Monday morning's waiting
Take a look at what you see
Make the most of your life
Don't keep the pages clean
Baby, now you've got this chance
Don't leave me out
It's so hard when
You're in-between
What you need and
What may never be

It ain't easy ...
