SECONDS OF PLEASURE The Lyrics


I CAN FEEL IT (J.O`Neill)

There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it On a day like today You can wish yourself away There`s nothing to do but I feel blessed When everything`s in the right place And the sun shines in your face You feel like the King of Happiness Oh yes Yes yes yes I got a feeling I got a feeling There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it You came out of the scene You came out of the colour scheme You`ve taken my hand and made me smile So now`s the second of the hour Now`s the rush of the phantom power You`ve taken this boy high as a mile Oh yes Yes yes I get a feeling I get a feeling There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it I get a feeling I get a feeling There`s a murmur in the air And I can`t hear it There`s a magic atmosphere Oh yes you know it`s true There`s a love that`s everywhere And I can feel it I can feel it And I can feel it I can feel it Can you feel it

SYLVIE (J.O`Neill)

Runnin` on magic I Stop for a breath In this Rock `n Roll din Out in the darkness I See her hands waving like Stems in the wind Sylvie is dancing as high as a kite Why are her eyes so attracted to light and Why does she fall for it night after night Sylvie We take all our strings And we take all our drums And we run down a golden road Tattered and crazy and Raging like bums We`ve been driven to overload Sylvie is dancing as high as a kite Why are her eyes so attracted to light and Why does she fall for it night after night Sylvie Da da da da.... Da da da da.... Sylvie is dancing as high as a kite Why are her eyes so attracted to light and Why does she fall for it night after night Sylvie Sylvie is dancing as high as a kite Why are her eyes so attracted to light and Why does she fall for it night after night Sylvie Sylvie Sylvie Sylvie Sylvie Sylvie

CELLARS OF DREAMS (J.O`Neill)

Hold me in the dark Wrap me in your skin In the arms of free fall We ride Darker than the night Darker than the womb Holding us like children inside There`s no mercy God is just a man There`s no mercy Love is in command Hold me till I`m silent Hold me till I scream Lovers in a cellar of dreams Imprisoned by these walls In these arms of steel In a world of colours I cry Soldiers of the night Following the stars To a bright oasis We fly There`s no mercy God is just a man There`s no mercy Love is in command Hold me till I`m silent Hold me till I scream Lovers in a cellar of dreams Lovers in a cellar of dreams

SMALL MERCY (J.O`Neill)

A heavy rhythm on a Roman Road Caterpillar tracks Caterpillar tracks Caterpillar tracks All the way back home An empty letter from the House of Words A story with a twist Story with a twist History with a twist Well that`s the way it goes I hear a rhythm of the Silent Steel In Meccano Town In Meccano Town In Meccano Town Where the Glow comes from Send a letter to the House of Words A singing Telegram A singing Telegram A singing Telegram A little idea bomb With our rules of Iron We will bind you With the strenght of Angels We will untie you Be thankful for Small Mercy A wheel of fortune And a secret sign A money comedy Cut the comedy Cut the comedy And play the blues Nights of correction In the House of Pain The mystery of Love Mystery of Love Mystery of Love And shiny shoes With our rules of Iron We will bind you With the strenght of Angels We will untie you Be thankful for Small Mercy Merci merci Merci merci Merci merci With our rules of Iron We will bind you With the strenght of Angels We will untie you Be thankful for Small Mercy Merci merci Merci merci Merci merci Merci merci Merci merci Merci merci

IT`S ONLY LOVE (J.O`Neill)

Yeah Oh yeah I can`t be happy If your not happy I can`t understand the world I can`t bale out Around this fall out I can`t understand the world I don`t want to make you angry no no I don`t want to mess you up no no It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s only love I can`t be helpful If your sad and tearful I can`t make the minutes fun I bring this indecision To your velvet prison I can`t make the minutes fun I don`t want to make you angry no no I don`t want to piss you off no no It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s only love Well it`s the strangest thing That when I look behind me Our friends are in a ring While we throw our things away I don`t wanna make you angry no no I don`t want to piss you off no no It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s alright It`s only Love

MISUNDERSTOOD (J.O`Neill)

I`m caught in a cage Silent and self aware I wanted to run But didn`t know why or where I wanted to run But hang around here to say That you are the one That`s making me feel this way I`m so misunderstood I`m so misunderstood Voices of night Play their mischevious games The voices of night Whisper and call us names The voices of night Don`t listen to what they say I need to be loved But it`s got to be in my own way I`m so misunderstood I`m so misunderstood They`ll never understand The way I feel tonight No they`ll never understand But I don`t care A night of secret wishing And hiding in the light And all those party faces Everywhere Misunderstood Misunderstood I`m caught in a cage Silent and self aware I wanted to run But didn`t know why or where I wanted to run But hang around here to say That you are the one That`s making me feel this way I`m so misunderstood I`m so misunderstood I`m so misunderstood I`m so misunderstood

LIFE CAN BE FATAL (J.O`Neill)

Well it must have been your eyes Or this wilderness inside That took me by surprise Kiss the world a long goodbye For the place your taking me Well we danced in the storm And we danced around the thorns And we danced with all our love In the flower of our youth You you you you you You know I said Life can be fatal Sometimes The touch of tenderness is leaving me with just A mouthful of dust The cars go skidding by Round vicious corners Tumble tumble Tumbling to rust Well we danced in the storm And we danced around the thorns And we danced with all our love In the flower of our youth You you you you you You know I said Life can be fatal Sometimes Sometimes I wake up and feel I wake up and feel So alive So alive Well we danced in the storm And we danced around the thorns And we danced with all our love In the flower of our youth And we danced till we were numb And we danced till kingdom come And we danced till we belonged In the jangle of a song You you you you you You know I said Life can be fatal Sometimes Life can be fatal Sometimes Life can be fatal Sometimes

STREETWALKER SONG (J.O`Neill)

In a room full of mirrors And Indian colour She waits for you Love with a stranger is perfectly natural Perfectly easy to do Some may be young And some may be old Forfeit this paper in gold Some may be rich And some may be poor Realise your dreams But leave your heart at the door Smiling seductively Dressing for fantasy Born to play Seconds of pleasure A shallow ecstasy Men are conditioned that way Some may be young And some may be old Forfeit this paper in gold Some may be rich And some may be poor Realise your dreams But leave your heart at the door Love shining This is Love shining Love shining This is Love shining Some may be young And some may be old Forfeit this paper in gold Some may be rich And some may be poor Realise your dreams But leave your heart at the door

MY PRAYER (J.O`Neill)

The night is ours In all its glory And all we have is sound To keep us happy And all I do know Is that I don`t know anything Anything The night is with us We will not weaken We dance in camouflage And go heat seeking And all I do know Is that I don`t know Anything One day we`ll sail away And head on out to an island Where the sky is clear And we`ll be free as Anything Anything Anything Another world away You take me to the stars And when we`re on the one In time together I just want to be Here today Here today There is a moment A silent feeling A way of being I know I`ve been there Cries and whispers Kissing Jesus My prayer My prayer My prayer My prayer My prayer My prayer

UNCONSCIOUS (J.O`Neill)

I can see you laughing in the smoke of dreams In sepia and tone I can hear you singing with your glass in hand An Irish drinking tune And you told us how you had to drop the bombs on innocent And on unknown And we held your hand in the last long night So you were not alone I`m with you `Till the fade I`m with you all the way This promise that I`ve made Is strictly personal I`ll keep my childish truth That no one can disprove Unconscious of this world You`re only Sleeping And you chose my colours And you chose my words Until I had to run away But then I returned to let you get to know The man I am today Now we only have what is left to us And these are selfish times I know But without the comfort and the caress of Love The garden will not grow I`m with you `Till the fade I`m with you all the way This promise that I`ve made Is strictly personal I`ll keep my childish truth That no one can disprove Unconscious of this world You`re only Sleeping You`re only Sleeping We`re only Sleeping
