THE SIN OF PRIDE The Lyrics


GOT TO HAVE YOU BACK

Got to have you back I need you A jealous lie hurt my foolish pride Made me break your heart Now our love has died I see a closing door A door never more A door of jealousy between your love and me Now I face a storm of tears You took the sunshine from my face Now I`m just another man Who walks the undestined way Without your guiding hand I can hardly tell when I`m the man Pride made a fool of me Now I`m drowning in misery Misery is drowning me And I`ve got to have you back I need you Between the night and day oh heaven speed you Cos I need you girl I`ve been told It`s a loneliness Oh dark is the emptiness Since you`ve been gone in me Oh gone is the lover I need Pride destroyed the love we knew But not my need for you Without your love around My whole world is falling down Falling down All around And I`ve got to have you back Got to have you back Got to have you back Got to have you back Got to have you back I see a closing door A door never more A door of jealousy between your love and me Now I face a storm of tears You took the sunshine from my face Now I`m just another man Who walks the undestined way Without your guiding hand I can hardly tell when I`m the man Pride made a fool of me Now I`m drowning in misery Misery is drowning me Got to have you back I`m drowning in misery Got to have you back My pride made a fool of me Got to have you back My whole world is falling down Got to have you back Without your sweet love around Got to have you back Got to have you back Got to have you back Got to have you back

VALENTINE`S TREATMENT

If hate`s a pleasure Then the well meaning isn`t meant Valentine`s treatment can make is all seem heaven sent Tempting Tempting To keep it all a secret Tempting Tempting But you know love`s the treatment I only wish it was mine If he`s playing cowboys or she`s acting old Valentine`s treatment can break pathetic moulds Take that boy who hates himself and can`t wait to be sold Valentine`s treatment can cure that twisted soul And love`s a good word Til spread around like so much lies It takes that treatment to rediscover the surprise

LUXURY

If I was having such a good time It wasn`t really that much fun A counterfeit conspiracy That`s suddenly gone wrong So come on Come on You`re a luxury A peculiar luxury It always breaks my heart You can keep your mystery It doesn`t mean a thing to me Painted lips and l`oreal Are broadcast in the dark A necessary cover up That`s finally left it`s mark So come on Come on You`re a luxury A peculiar luxury It always breaks my heart You can keep your mystery It doesn`t mean a thing to me Your sneaky little schemes that show The wolf`s still at your door A vicious little paragon Of what you were before So come on Come on You`re a luxury A peculiar luxury It always breaks my heart You can keep your mystery It doesn`t mean a thing to me

LOVE BEFORE ROMANCE

She sends me underground When it shard to take the strain She sends me underground When it feels like it`s going to rain Where`s the love Where`s the love Where`s the love I`m wholly high in the darkest night When suddenly I have to stop She sends me underground With the habit`s that she makes me drop Love before romance

UNTOUCHABLE

I can`t deny these foolish hands of mine Have towed me in the dark A collision course that has hit the rocks Has now pierced my heart I`m stricken down by deceptive moves What`s meant is meant to be Who`d try console a losing side When that losing side is me So now I`ll go step out of line The untouchable is a touch too fine A crazy lust that strips me bare A tarnished whim that just will not wear I`ve witnessed sin that made me swallow deep And haunt me till I`m dead A silent voice that only speaks the truth Is gagged and bound instead

BYE BYE BABY BLUE

She looks a part of yesterdays modern girl Another lover caught above her social world A simple women she`s not Sophisticated she`s got She doesn`t want to be too ordinary Hello lady driver Bye bye baby blue Put love under pressure See what it can do She didn`t care as the years kept crashing closer To a serious situation getting worse If life had been unkind Her beauty beaten blind She didn`t want to hurt anybody Hello lady driver Bye bye baby blue Put love under pressure See what it can do And if I dream I have to dream of something That`s doesn`t mean I have to dream of you The stains on my bed Like the blemishes you left Are all that reminds me of you Hello lady driver Bye bye baby blue Put love under pressure See what it can do

CONSCIOUS

It makes me wonder How to read your understanding It makes me wonder What`s in your mind It makes me wonder How the flash of love keeps blinding It makes me wonder Time after time Meet distant love Meet distant love and see what`s in store Watch it evolve A conscious way to what`s now no more But what is love But what is love A cut above It`s what gets you noticed It makes me wonder How to read your understanding It makes me wonder What`s in your mind It makes me wonder How the flash of love keeps blinding It makes me wonder Time after time I`ve seen the switch I`ve seen the hungry looks you`ve let slip You`ve fooled us all A stupid victim under your grip But what is love But what is love A cut above It`s what gets you noticed It makes me wonder How to read your understanding It makes me wonder What`s in your mind It makes me wonder How the flash of love keeps blinding It makes me wonder Time after time

CHAIN OF LOVE

Every night when the light has gone I can see you carry on Knights in armour won`t rescue you In the shadows The naked truth Chain of love Don`t put me away Chain of love Don`t put me away Any time you took my name i had to change it back again Caught in crossfire never worried me I`m caught in chains deliberately Chain of love Don`t put me away Chain of love Don`t put me away Take me away from this notion I`m nervous enough Take me away from this girl Who`s a genius for love She`s a genius Lonely nights like the night before See I`ve made you ask for more Tropical fever when the heat is on A pocket Venus the lonely one Chain of love Don`t put me away Chain of love Don`t put me away

SOUL SEVEN

In a library of fools Where spectators hang their sense It`s alright It`s alright Yeah In abeyance with the rules The only sound is from the books they read And it`s alright It`s alright Yeah A tide of emotion that`s supposed to show If you surrender to me At the tiny corporation That`s made of blood Sweat and tears It`s alright It`s alright Yeah They cover every complication That happens every year And it`s alright It`s alright Yeah A tide of emotion that`s supposed to show If you surrender to me

THE LOVE PARADE

My heart`s lost since you`ve been gone But you`re not the guilty one I`ll go back and pick another girl again Close my eyes cos I know that they`re all the same At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade We were lovers from the start What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love But since then we`ve grown apart What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love Nothing now can make us lovers and we know What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love So the two of us are going to see just what`s on show What`s the point of it What`s the point of it At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade It takes it`s time passing by And gives a chance for the loving eye So see a face and let the body try To get them moving side by side We were lovers from the start What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love But since then we`ve grown apart What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love Nothing now can make us lovers and we know What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love So the two of us are going to see just what`s on show What`s the point of it What`s the point of it

SAVE ME

Now I have cried a river since the day you said goodbye And if you don`t come back I`m going to drown in the tears I cry Save me save me Save me save me Come on and save me I need you so Like falling off a mountain slope I`m sinking down so fast Clinging to a twig of hope that this separation won`t last Save me save me Oh why don`t you save me It`s up to you to save me I need you so Without you here beside me I`m only half alive Stay away from me any longer and I can`t survive Save me save me Oh why don`t you save me It`s up to you to save me I need you so

THE SIN OF PRIDE

The sin of pride keeps me from walking away Don`t walk away To join the lines of gods who think of nothing to say Think what to say The talk of war won`t scare my intentions away Don`t walk away But talk of love and kiss these ribbons today Think what to say The cost of love might make these presents seem small Don`t walk away But with the thoughts inside that wouldn`t matter at all Think what to say And I`ve lost all my friends to be yours But pride`ll still meet me I`m sure And stop me from feeling so hurt Pride`ll still meet Wanting my love Come closer love To want me Come closer love Keeping that love Come closer love Just for me Come closer love I`ve lost all my friends to be yours But pride`ll still meet me I`m sure And stop me from feeling so hurt The sin of pride keeps me from walking away Don`t walk away But keeps inside the things I wanted to say Think what to say A look of love leads me from hate to despair Don`t walk away I look at love it says I shouldn`t be there Think what to say So she goes again

BITTERSWEET

I used to cry I used to cry alone Watch my face as I grew older Reflect the world I`ve known The kind of love that I would need Tasted too bittersweet to me I used to wonder What it was I did wrong No amount of conversation Could keep me holding on The kind of love that I would need Tasted too bittersweet to me Every little tear That ever used to fall Broke most of my resistance That`s the cruelest twist of all The kind of love that I would need Tasted too bittersweet to me Don`t look back I don`t stop to hang around Don`t except the disappointment Relationships I have found The kind of love that I would need Tasted too bittersweet to me

YOU STAND SO CLOSE (BUT YOU`RE NEVER THERE)

If it`s a fact some thing won`t ever change Will your super V`s remain the same I don`t care if you won`t care You stand so close But you`re never there You break my heart but you confess you do So who can I send the pieces to I don`t care if you won`t care You stand so close But you`re never there You deliberately made a fool of me You gave no excuse so what`s the use of you I know you won`t wait cos it`s always too late I know you won`t wait for me to return It takes more or less that`s made of us With piety must we pretend What could be has gone again I don`t care if you won`t care You stand so close But you`re never there If I`ve been good you never tell me so With love like that I`ll never know I don`t care if you won`t care You stand so close But you`re never there

TURNING BLUE

Heavenly eyes That smiled on me A tender kiss that had to be Always always The same the same Look whose falling in love again The night isn`t angry with me Our beating hearts Two distant stars A lovely way to say we are No need no need Too far too far A lesson in love just isn`t t love enough The night isn`t angry with me And it suddenly sounds Like it always comes As Monday creeps up on you A perfect day for someone turning blue Heavenly eyes That smiled on me The sweetest thing that`s ever been Always always The same the same Look whose falling in love

LIKE THAT

It`s the end of the rainbow It`s the end of us all It`s the end of our feeling Our reason to fall None at all Open your eyes love Reveal a disguise You words have no meaning All rise All them lies And I try to hide Yes I try to hide Under the sunlight Away from the wall Left with his hands tied The curse of it all Walking with me now Hang on to them all It`s the end of our feeling No reason to crawl - none at all Said he didn`t like it But he liked it like that Said he didn`t like it But he liked it like that Said he didn`t like it But he liked it like that Said he didn`t like it But he liked it like that

I CAN ONLY DREAM

If you really saw the only girl I know I have to dream a love affair Like the vacantness that always hurts my flesh I have to dream a love affair Dream I can only dream Dream alone You`re not there I`m doing time for an emotional crime I have to dream a love affair She`s the sweetest girl in a changing world I have to dream a love affair Dream I can only dream Dream alone You`re not there With the body of eve and the clothes you wear I have to dream a love affair Dream I can only dream Dream alone You`re not there

WINDOW SHOPPING FOR NEW CLOTHES

Intuition tells me About the kind of clothes I should wear But intuition won`t help me To become a self made millionaire There`s always someone on the phone Getting stupid undone Wants to know what can`t be go I don`t care Never say your sorry Let science turn your head Cos when you start to worry Then you`re better off being dead Intuition tells me Of the ways I can cut my hair But intuition can`t help me Because it`s seldom there
