VISIONS OF PARADISE
===================

DON'T TELL ME WHEN SOMETHING IS BEAUTIFUL
AND DON'T TELL ME HOW TO TALK TO MY FRIENDS
JUST TELL ME THE NAMES OF THE STARS IN THE SKY
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE SONG
TELL ME THE NAMES OF THE LOVERS YOU HAD
BEFORE I CAME ALONG

DON'T PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME
AND DON'T HOLD ME TIGHT
'CAUSE I COULD GET USED TO YOUR VISION OF PARADISE

AND DON'T ASK ME WHERE ALL OF THE PAIN GOES
'CAUSE YOU MAKE ME FEEL THAT I DON'T KNOW MYSELF
YOU SAY THAT YOU WANT ME FOREVER AND I
I SAY THAT LOVE IS NO CRIME
SO TELL ME THE NAMES OF THE CHILDREN WE'LL HAVE
AT THE END OF THE LINE

SO DON'T PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME
AND DON'T HOLD ME TIGHT
'CAUSE I COULD GET USED TO YOUR VISION OF PARADISE
AND DON'T LET ME NEAR THE GARDEN
OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS
'CAUSE I COULD GET USED TO YOUR VISION OF PARADISE
OF PARADISE
OF PARADISE

JUST USE YOUR HEART NOT YOUR HEAD
WHILE I FALL APART IN MY BED
I FIND MYSELF ACHING FOR YOU
I FEEL MYSELF BREAKING IN TWO

SO DON'T TELL ME WHEN I SHOULD COME ON HOME
THERE MIGHT BE A TIME YOU DON'T WANT ME AROUND
SO DON'T BUILD YOUR WORLD AROUND ME
AND DON'T HOLD ME TIGHT
'CAUSE I COULD GET USED TO YOUR VISION OF PARADISE

JOY
===


OH JOY LOVE YOU BRING
OH JOY MAKE MY HEART SING

AND I DROVE ACROSS THE DESERT
I WAS IN MY FOUR WHEEL DRIVE
I WAS LOOKING FOR THE BUDDHA
AND I SAW JESUS CHRIST

HE SMILED AND SHRUGGED HIS SHOULDERS
AND LIT A CIGARETTE
SAID JUMP FOR JOY
MAKE SOME NOISE
REMEMBER WHAT I SAID

MY SOUL IS A LIKE A RUBY
AND I THREW IT IN THE EARTH
BUT NOW MY HANDS ARE BLEEDING
FROM SCRABBLING IN THE DIRT
AND I LOOK UP TO THE HEAVENS
AND A LIGHT IS ON MY FACE
I NEVER NEVER NEVER
THOUGHT I'D FIND A STATE OF GRACE

HEY JOY
LOVE YOU BRING
OH JOY
MAKE MY HEART SING
OH JOY
JOY IN EVERYTHING

JOY JOY JOY OH JOY
JOY JOY JOY OH JOY

I WAS DROWNING IN THE DARKNESS
AS I DROVE DOWN TO THE SEA

JOY JOY JOY OH JOY

AND I LOOKED UP TO THE MOUNTAIN
AND THE LIGHT BURST OVER ME
JOY JOY JOY OH OH JOY


YOU MAKE ME SING
OH JOY
THE LOVE YOU BRING
YOU MAKE ME SING
OH JOY
IN EVERYTHING
IN EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING

JUMP FOR JOY
JUMP FOR JOY
JUMP FOR JOY


========================
DANCING IN THE STARLIGHT
========================

I WAS TOSSING AND A TURNING
LIKE A SHIP OUT IN A STORM
AND I COULD NOT FEEL THE SPIRIT
THERE WAS NOTHING THERE AT ALL
AND I COULD NOT DIAL THE NUMBER
AND I COULD NOT MAKE THE CALL

DANCING IN THE STARLIGHT
DANCING IN THE STRANGEST FORMS
AND I COULD NOT FEEL THE SPIRIT
WAS A THOUSAND MILES OFF COURSE

STUMBLING IN THE TWILIGHT
THERE WAS NO ONE THERE AT ALL
I WAS GROPING IN THE DARKNESS
SEEING DANGERS IN THE PORT
TORTURED INTO SILENCE
MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL

DANCING IN THE STARLIGHT
SWIRLING IN THE WALLS
JUST LIKE VENUS ON THE OCEAN
THE FIGURES ON THE WALL

IF YOU DON'T TAKE RISKS
IF YOU DON'T TAKE A CHANCE
YOU'RE BOUND TO FALL
OH YEAH SUGAR
YOU WILL SURELY FALL

CRYIN' FOR SALVATION
THERE WAS NOTHING THERE AT ALL
I COULD NOT DIAL THE NUMBER
AND I COULD NOT MAKE THE CALL

DANCING IN THE STARLIGHT
THE FIGURES ON THE WALL
YOU WILL SURELY FALL
DANCING IN THE STARLIGHT
YOU WILL SURELY FALL
YOU WILL SURELY FALL


======================
GOD GAVE ME EVERYTHING
======================

YOU CAN SEE IT IN A CLEAR BLUE SKY
YOU CAN SEE IT IN A WOMAN'S EYES
YOU CAN HEAR IT IN YOUR BABIES CRIES
YOU CAN HEAR IT IN YOUR LOVER'S SIGHS
YOU CAN TOUCH IT IN A GRAIN OF SAND
YEAH HOLD IT RIGHT THERE
IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND
FEEL IT ROUND YOU EVERYDAY
AND HEAR WHAT I'VE GOT TO SAY

GOD GAVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT
COME ON
I'LL GIVE IT ALL TO YOU
GOD GAVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT
COME ON
I'LL GIVE IT ALL TO YOU

I SAW IT IN THE MIDNIGHT SUN
AND I FELT IT IN THE RACE I WON
AND I HEAR IT IN THE WINDY STORM
AND I FEEL IT IN THE ICY DAWN
AND I SMELL IT THE WINE I TASTE
AND I SEE IT IN MY FATHER'S FACE
AND I HEAR IT IN A SYMPHONY
AND I FEEL IT IN THE LOVE YOU SHOW FOR ME

YEAH
GOD GAVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT
OH COME ON
I'LL GIVE IT ALL TO YOU
GOD GAVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT

COME ON
I'LL GIVE IT ALL TO YOU
GOD GAVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT
I CAN'T STOP CAN'T STOP
I'M STILL LOOKING NOW
GOD GAVE ME EVERTHING I WANT
OH COME ON
I'LL GIVE IT ALL TO YOU

CRAZY YOU SAID
IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD
CHORUS


=========
HIDE AWAY
=========

HIDE AWAY HIDE AWAY

MAKE SURE THAT I NEVER COME BACK
DISAPPEAR AND I NEVER COME BACK

I'M GONNA PACK UP ALL MY BAGS
VANISH WHILE I CAN
GONNA LEAVE THIS TOWN BEHIND
PAY IT ALL NO MIND
I'M GONNA FLY AWAY
AND NO ONE'S GONNA FIND ME

KEEP MY DESTINATION QUIET
TAKE AN EARLY MORNING FLIGHT
NEVER TELL A SOUL
JUST LIGHT OUT ON MY OWN
I'M GONNA FLY AWAY
AND NO ONE'S GONNA FIND ME

I'M GONNA WEAR SOME FAKE DISGUISE
CHANGE THE COLOUR OF MY EYES
YES I'M GOING HIDE AWAY
AND YOU'RE GONNA BE SURPRISED
I'LL BE WISE BEFORE MY TIME
I'M GOING HIDE AWAY

MAKE SURE THAT I NEVER COME BACK
DISAPPEAR AND I NEVER COME BACK
MAKE SURE THAT I NEVER COME BACK
DISAPPEAR AND I NEVER COME BACK

I'M GONNA RENT A SMALL HOTEL
THROW AWAY MY CELL
CUT OFF ALL MY HAIR
SWEEP AWAY MY CARES
I'M GONNA FLY AWAY
AND NO ONE'S EVER GONNA FIND ME

I'M OUT OF EVERYBODY'S REACH
OUT ON SOME TWISTED BEACH
I'M GONNA HIDE AWAY
DISSOLVE RIGHT OUT THIS SCENE
OUT OF EVERYBODY'S DREAMS
I'M GONNA HIDE AWAY
HIDE AWAY


MAKE SURE THAT I NEVER COME BACK
DISAPPEAR WHEN I NEVER COME BACK
MAKE SURE THAT I NEVER COME BACK
DISAPPEAR WHEN I NEVER COME BACK



================
DON'T CALL ME UP
================

I WAS TRYING TO FORGET YOU
BUT YOU WON'T TELL ME HOW
LATELY I'M FINDING IT TRICKY
WITH YOUR PICTURE PLASTERED ALL OVER TOWN
FRIENDS PICK YOU UP IN CONVERSATION
JUST TO SEE HOW I'LL REACT
I GET THESE INTERNAL LACERATIONS
THAT JACK ME UP AND LAY ME OUT FLAT

BUT I CAN'T THROW MY LIFE AWAY
I CAN'T GIVE THE GAME AWAY
YOU JUST WANDERED OFF THE STAGE
AND LEFT ME DEALING WITH THE PAIN

SO DON'T CALL ME UP
OH WHEN YOU WANNA CRY
'COS I MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
DON'T CALL ME UP
ON SOME RAINY NIGHT
'COS I MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
LET YOU DOWN

PEOPLE ASK HAVE YOU SEEN HER
I SAY NOT FOR A WHILE
I'M GONNA SEE MY GIRLFRIEND WAY DOWN IN ARGENTINA
WE'RE GONNA HAVE A BLAST FOR A WHILE
BUT I SEE YOU IN MY INNER EYE
TOUCH ME WITH A GENTLE SMILE
WONDER IF YOU CATCH MY MOOD
CAN YOU FEEL MY SOLITUDE

SO DON'T CALL ME UP
WHEN YOU WANNA CRY
'COS I MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
DON'T CALL ME UP
WHEN SOME OTHER GUY
HANGS YOUR HEARTSTRINGS OUT TO DRY

AS THE WAVES CRASH AROUND
AND THE STARS HIT THE GROUND
I'LL BE OUT OF MY MIND ONCE AGAIN
AS THE RAIN LASHES DOWN
AND THE STARS CAN'T BE FOUND
I WILL HOLD MY HEAD HIGH
AND JUST GAZE AT THE SKY
I WAS UNDER YOUR SPELL
AND YOU TOOK ME TO HELL

DON'T CALL ME UP
IF YOU WANNA CRY
I MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
DON'T CALL ME UP
IF YOU WANT SOME LIE
I MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
MIGHT LET YOU DOWN
MIGHT LET YOU DOWN

I WAS TRYING TO FORGET YOU
YEAH
BUT YOU WON'T TELL ME HOW
NOW YOU'RE OUT ALL OVER TOWN
YOU'RE PLASTERED ALL OVER TOWN
PLASTERED ALL OVER TOWN


======================
GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY
======================

DEMONS IN THE BEDROOM
DOGS ARE ON THE ROOF
I AM IN THE BASEMENT
LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH

TIRED OF BEING PATIENT
FOR THE VOICE TO COME
IF YOU WANT THE ANSWER
THERE IS ONLY ONE - ONLY ONE

HER FLESH IS SMOOTH AND SUPPLE
AND VELVET AS THE NIGHT
HER EYES ARE SHOT WITH DIAMONDS
A MOUTH FULL OF DELIGHT

THERE'S A GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY
ASKING HOW MUCH CAN I TAKE
AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE'S HEADING MY WAY
THERE'S A GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY

DEMONS IN THE BEDROOM
DOGS ARE ON THE LOOSE
DRIVING IN THE BACKSTREETS
LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH

I'M SEARCHING FOR YOUR TEMPLE
HUNTING FOR YOUR SHRINE
I'M LOOKING FOR A VISION
BY A NEON SIGN

THERE'S A GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY
ASKING HOW MUCH CAN I TAKE
AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE'S HEADING MY WAY
THERE'S A GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY

AND HER TEARS FLOW LIKE A FOUNTAIN
LIKE A RIVER FROM THE MOUNTAIN

HOW MUCH
HOW MUCH CAN I TAKE
HOW MUCH, HOW MUCH CAN I TAKE

THERE'S A GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY
ASKING HOW MUCH CAN I TAKE
AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE'S HEADING MY WAY
THERE'S A GODDESS IN THE DOORWAY


==========
LUCKY DAY
==========

I KNOW YOU'RE LIVIN' IN A FANTASY
I KNOW THAT LOVE HAS GOT THE BEST OF ME
CASH YOUR CHIPS
I KNOW YOU'RE ON THE SLIDE
TRUST IN ME FOR I WILL BE YOUR GUIDE

IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY BABY
IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY NOW
IT'S THE ONLY WAY
TO LEAVE THIS TOWN BEHIND
IT'S THE ONLY WAY
TO LEAVE THIS TOWN ALIVE
IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY BABY

CAREFUL NOW OF THE DOGS THAT BARK
BUT WATCH OUT NOW THE POOL IS FILLED WITH SHARKS
YOU'RE IN THE PIT
THE SNAKES BEGIN TO WRITHE
BUT HELP IS HERE
I THROW YOU DOWN A LINE

IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY BABY
IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY NOW
IT'S THE CHANCE
TO LEAVE THIS TOWN BEHIND
IT'S THE ONLY WAY
TO LEAVE THIS TOWN ALIVE

I KNOW YOU'RE LIVIN' IN A FANTASY, YES
I KNOW THAT LOVE HAS GOT THE BEST OF ME

IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY BABY
IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY NOW
IT'S THE ONLY WAY
TO LEAVE THIS TOWN BEHIND
IT'S UP TO YOU
YOU ARE THE ONE TO DECIDE
IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO LEAVE THIS TOWN ALIVE



======================
EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH
======================


EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH
EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH

HERE COMES THE WRITER
HE'S GOT THE SCRIPT RIGHT IN HIS HAND
TALKIN' TO THE ACTRESS
WHILE SHE'S CHECKING OUT THE BAND
HER NAME IS PRETTY
BUT NOT THE BOILS ON HER FACE
I FEEL LIKE RUNNING
BUT THERE'S NO HIDING PLACE

EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH
EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH

MY DRESS DESIGNERS
THEY WANT TO DOLL ME UP IN BLUE, PRETTY
NEXT FALL'S COLLECTION
THEY WANT TO SHOW IT IN THE ZOO

EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH
EVERYBODY GETTING FLY FLY FLY FLY FLY FLY FLY

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE
TO ALL THESE DOGS YOU'RE JUST A BONE
BEFORE YOU THROW UP HONEY
JUST GRAB YOUR COAT
AND KISS YOUR GOODBYES
I'M GONNA TAKE YOU TAKE YOU HOME

I'M CHECKIN' OUT THE KUNG FU ACTOR
BOY IS HE WAY UP HIS ASS
HE WON'T EVEN TALK TO ME
BUT HE WANTS TO SHOW ME HOW TO DANCE

EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH
AND I SIT AND WONDER WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY
COS EVERYBODY WANTS TO FLY FLY FLY FLY FLY FLY FLY
EVERYBODY GETTING HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH HIGH

GUN
===


YOUR FRIENDS WILL SAY ITS SELF DEFENCE
WITH NO HOPE OF RECOMPENSE
AND ANYWAY IT MAKES NO SENSE
THE WAY YOU HURT ME BABY

YOU ALWAYS TURN THE OTHER CHEEK
ALWAYS ACTED MILD AND MEEK
YA, ALWAYS PLAYED ME FOR A GEEK
THE WAY YOU DRESSED TO KILL

WHY DON'T JUST GET A GUN AND SHOOT IT
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN
AND SHOOT IT THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE
THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE

YOU TRIED TO STRECH ME ON THE RACK
I SAW YOU LAUGHING WHEN I CRACKED
YOU BROKE MY WILL YOU BROKE MY BACK
ON THE WHEEL OF UNCERTAINTY

YOU TRIED TO PUSH ME TO THE EDGE
YOU WOULDN'T LISTEN WHEN I BEGGED
WHY DON'T YOU PUSH ME OFF THE LEDGE
IT'S JUST TORTURE BABY

WHY DON'T JUST GET A GUN AND SHOOT IT
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN
AND SHOOT IT THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE
THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE
THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE
THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE

WHY DON'T YOU JUST BUY A GUN
WHY DON'T YOU JUST BUY A GUN AND SHOOT IT
WHY DON'T YOU JUST BUY A GUN

YOU FRIENDS WILL SAY IT'S SELF DEFENCE
THEY SAY IT'S CHEAP AND NO EXPENSE

WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN AND USE IT
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A GUN
AND SHOOT IT THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE
THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE
THROUGH THIS HEART OF MINE

============
TOO FAR GONE
============

LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN NOW
LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN NOW
LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN NOW

I ALWAYS HATE NOSTALGIA
LIVING IN THE PAST
NO USE GETTING MISTY EYED
IT ALL SCREAMED BY SO FAST

WHEN LIFE WAS SO MUCH CALMER
SEVERLY BUTTONED UP
THE FUTURE RICH IN PROMISES
MILK FLOWING FROM THE CUP

I WOULD SPEND THOSE LAZY DAYS
LYING ON A RIDGE
WATCHING GIRLS IN COTTON DRESSES
DIVING OFF THE BRIDGE

IS IT TOO FAR GONE
IS IT TOO FAR GONE
IS IT TOO TOO FAR GONE
TOO FAR GONE

THIS WAS ONCE THE COUNTRY
NOW IT'S ALL THE TOWN
WHAT WAS ONCE THE TALLEST SPIRE
IS JUST A BUILDING CRUMBLED DOWN

AND I'M LIVING IN A FACTORY
THAT'S A MILLION DOLLAR FLAT
I'M NOT LOOKING FOR ARCADIA
CAUSE IT'S NEVER COMING BACK

I WOULD SPEND MY CHILDHOOD DAYS
LOST IN STARRY DREAMS
AND NOW WATCH MY CHILDREN
JUST DOWNLOADING THEM TO SCREENS

LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN
LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN

'CAUSE IT'S TOO FAR GONE
YEAH IT'S TOO FAR GONE
YEAH IT'S TOO TOO
TOO FAR TOO FAR GONE

LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN LET IT DOWN

I'M LYING IN A GARDEN
CARPETS IN THE SHADE
THINKING OF THE FUTURE
AND ALL THE LOVE WE SAVED
THE WORLD OUTSIDE IS UGLY
IT'S BITTER AND IT'S HARSH
WE EACH OF US PROTECT OURSELVES
WE'RE HOSTAGE TO THE PAST

AND IT'S TOO FAR GONE
IT'S TOO FAR GONE
I WONDER WHERE DID WE GO WRONG
AND IT'S TOO TOO FAR
AND IT'S TOO TOO FAR
TOO FAR GONE




======================
BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
======================

I WILL BE KIND WON'T BE SO CRUEL
I WILL BE SWEET I WILL BE TRUE
THE PAINS OF LOVE YOU'LL QUICKLY LEARN
ARE SOON TO HEAT AND QUICK TO BURN

I GOT A BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
BECAUSE I AM YOUR BRAND NEW FOOL
I GOT A BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
I GOT TO LEARN

YOU'LL BE SO PROUD SO PROUD OF ME,
YOU'LL SEE THE CHANGE SO PLAIN TO SEE
BECAUSE OF YOU A BRAND NEW START
BECAUSE OF YOU A CHANGE OF HEART

I GOT A BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
IT'S JUST LIKE I WAS BACK IN SCHOOL
I GOT A BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
I GOT TO LEARN

I'M GOING TO CHANGE JUST MARK MY WORDS
YOU CAN'T BELIEVE ALL THAT YOU HEARD
ALL OF THOSE LIES ALL OF THOSE RUMOURS
THAT YOUR FRIENDS TOLD YOU

AND IF I'M LEFT UPON THE SHELF
'CAUSE YOU BELONG TO SOMEONE ELSE
I'VE GOT MY BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
BECAUSE I AM NOBODY'S FOOL

I'VE GOT A BRAND NEW SET OF RULES
I'VE GOT TO LEARN
I'VE GOT TO LEARN
I'VE GOT TO LEARN
