Poison Arrow

If I were to say to you
"Can you keep a secret?"
Would you know just what to do
Or where to keep it?
Then I say "I love you"
And foul the situation
"Hey girl I thought we were The right combination"

Who broke my heart?
You did, you did
Bow to the target
Blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart
Stupid, Stupid

Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
Shoot that poison arrow to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

No rhythm in cymbals
No tempo in drums
Love on arrival
She comes when she comes
Right on the target
But wide of the mark
What I thought was fire
Was only the spark

The sweetest melody
Is an unheard refrain
So lower your sights
Yeah but raise your aim
Raise your aim

Who broke my heart?
You did, you did
Bow to the target
Blame Cupid, Cupid
You think you're smart
Stupid, Stupid

I thought you loved me but it seems you don't care
I care enough to know I can never love you

Who broke my heart?
You did, You did
Bow to the target
Blame Cupid
You think you're smart
That's stupid
Right from the start
When you knew we would part

The Look Of Love (part one)

When your world is full of strange arrangements
And gravity won't pull you through
You know you're missing out on something
Well that something depends on you

All I'm saying, it takes a lot to love you
All I'm doing, you know it's true
All I mean now, there's one thing
Yes one thing that turns this grey sky to blue

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love

When your girl has left you out on the pavement (Goodbye)
Then your dreams fall apart at the seams
Your reason for living's your reason for leaving
Don't ask me what it means

Who's got the look?
- I don't know the answer to that question
Where's the look?
- If I knew I would tell you
What's the look?
- Look for your information
Yes there's one thing, the one thing that still holds true (What's that?)

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love

If you judge a book by the cover
Then you'd judge the look by the lover
I hope you'll soon recover
Me I go from one extreme to another

And though my friends just might ask me
They say "Martin maybe one day you'll find true love"
I say "Maybe, there must be a solution
To the one thing, the one thing, we can't find"

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look

Sisters and brothers
Should help each other
Oh, oh, oh
Heavens above
That's the look, that's the look, hip hip hooray, ay
That's the look, that's the look, yippee ai yippee aiay
That's the look, that's the look
Be lucky in love
Look of love

The Night You Murdered Love

It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love

From an early age
I was taught to respect
That a broken heart girl
Ain't a thing you collect

Close your eyes and say
Nothing lasts a day
You're wasting my time
Yet I love to love you
Close your eyes and say
Honour love obey
You're wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
January... February... March and April May
June July sees you go by
I see love walk away

Didn't use a blade
A bullet or a gun
You poisoned the moonlight
When you put out the sun
Close your eyes and say
Nothing lasts a day
You're wasting my time
Yet I love to love you
Close your eyes and say
Honour love obey
You're wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
January... February... March and April May
June July sees you go by
I see love walk away
Close your eyes and say
Nothing lasts a day
You're wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside - the night love died
On the night you murdered love

Tears Are Not Enough

Tears for souvenirs
Tears are not enough
Tears for shields and spears
Tears are not enough

Searching for certainty
When it's such an unstable world
Searching for something good
And I'm looking for the real McCoy
Blueprint: That says that boy meets girl
Picture: Girl meets boy
A blueprint that says that the boy meets the girl
Picture in a magazine

Yes you've shown your feelings
Yes you've shown you're tough
Said things worth believing
Tears are not enough

Slam that door, slap my face
I don't love you anymore
Dry your eyes Sink or swim
You surmise you can't win
We all make great mistakes

Would I lie
Should I lie
Could I lie to you?
Excuses had their uses
But now they're all used up, all used up

Yes you've shown your feelings
Yes you've shown you're tough
Said things worth believing
Tears are not enough

Tears for souvenirs
Tears are not enough
Tears for shields and spears
Tears are not enough

Be Near Me

The message is perfectly simple
The meaning is clear
Don't ever stray too far
And don't disappear

Ever had that feeling, almost broke in two?
Said that you were leaving, like you do. You do?

All my dreams came true last night
All my hopes and fears
All my dreams came true once more
In tears in tears

Be near me, be near, be near...

Never had that feeling, until I first met you
Never felt like kneeling, now I do. Yes I do

Be near me, be near

What's your reputation? Ecstasy!
What's your destination? Next to me!

I'm In Love With You

I - I would swim the seven seas
I - I would crawl upon my knees
I - I climb mountains high for you
I - I would guarantee your every dream come true...come true

Oh I - I'm in love with you
Yes it's true
Oh I - I wouldn't cheat on you
Yes it's true
Oh I - I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love
With you...

I - I would drink an ocean dry
I - I would pluck the moon out from the sky
I - I would build a palace just for you
I - I could give you... Park Avenue... Park Avenue

Oh I - I'm in love with you
Yes it's true
Oh I - I wouldn't cheat on you
Yes it's true
Oh I - I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love
With you...

I - I would travel back in time
I - I would kill a man to make you mine
I - I would leap the Empire State
I - I'd win a war, just to conquer hate... conquer hate

Oh I - I'm in love with you
Yes it's true
Oh I - I wouldn't cheat on you
Yes it's true
Oh I - I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love
With you...

The Real Thing

A mongoose can smile at a cobra
But that cobra will always be a snake
Diamante can shine like a diamond
But you know, like I know
That rock will be fake

It's the real thing
The real thing
Nothing but the real thing
It's real

You can xerox the Mona Lisa
Deadpan Da Vinci in every detail
Might beat customs on a home-made visa
But false papers
Only gets you in jail

It's the real thing
The real thing
Nothing but the real thing
It's real

Life wears a smile on it's face
But it comes with a sting in it's tail
Make believe fables have their place
But only a fool
Only a fool
Believes fairy tales

I heard all the lies that they tell ya
"Phone me baby. The cheque's in the mail"
Well as fantasy
It might please ya
As the real thing
It does nothing but fail

It's the real thing
The real thing
Nothing but the real thing
It's real

It's the real thing
The real thing
Nothing but the real thing
It's real

Love's A Dangerous Language

Love's a dangerous language
Survey the damage
See what love has done
Oh, my precious darling my sacred angel
Look what we've done

Oh, you're scared and frightened
Don't be afraid yes
We'll take your problem wheel
Drive it slowly to a shallow grave

So in those special moments
That might make you think you were happy then
Moving blue through pink but you're happy now
And you think you'll sink

The buckle is tied for a white knuckle ride
When the buckle is tied
Then the judgements denied

Oh, my own she vixen we're sworn to secrecy, this crime is ours
Yeah, so quench your thirst
And when I'm hungry
I'll eat my words

So in those special moments
That might make you think you're happy now
Moving blue through pink you were happy then
But you think you'll sink

The buckle is tied for a white knuckle ride
When the buckle is tied,
Then the judgements denied wherever we go
Wherever we hide
In the white of your eyes
I see the feelings just died

The Greatest Love Of All

Some men seek solace
Some take to drink
Some men find knowledge, yeah
At least that's what they think

Some take to violence
Streamlining their dreams
Some sit in silence
And learn what love can mean

Much further to go
Much further to crawl
But one day you'll find
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all

The load is tough
The path is long
Strewn with rocks yeah
But you'd be wrong, so wrong

One single spark
Can start a prairie fire
When one man speaks truth
He fills this world with pure desire

Much further to go
Much further to crawl
But one day you'll find
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all

One day united
One day free
You'll be rewarded
The one true path is unity

Fruit don't fall
Too far from the tree
One day we'll bathe
In true humility

Much further to go
Much further to crawl
But one day you'll find
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all

When Smokey Sings

Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed.
In deep despair on lonely nights.
He knows just how you feel.
The slyest rhymes - the sharpest suits.
In miracles made real.

Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night.
You know you're right just to hold her tight.
He soothes it right - makes it outtasite.
And everything's good in the world tonight!

When Smokey sings - I hear violins.
When Smokey sings - I forget everything.
As she's packing her things.
As she's spreading her wings.
The front door might slam.
But the back door it rings.
And Smokey sings...he sings.

Elegance in eloquence - for sale or rent or hire.
Should I say - Yes I match his best.
Then I would be a liar.
Symphonies that soothe the rage.
When lovers hearts catch fire.

Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night.
You know you're right just to hold her tight.
He soothes it right - makes it outtasite.
And everything's good in the world tonight!.

When Smokey sings - I hear violins.
When Smokey sings - I forget everything.
As she's packing her things.
As she's spreading her wings.
Smashing the hell.
With the heaven she brings.
Then Smokey sings...he sings.

Luther croons.
Sly's the original - originator.
James screams.
Marvin was the only innovator.
But nothing can compare.
Nothing can compare.
When Smokey sings.

When Smokey sings - I hear violins.
When Smokey sings - I forget everything.
As she's packing her things.
As she's spreading her wings.
She threw back the ring.
When Smokey sings...
Smokey sings...
Smokey sings...

One Better World

Politician preaching - on TV
Saying nothing but - vote for me
Everybody, everywhere
We got a love, got a love
Got a love we gotta share

One better world
One better world
One better world

Papers feeding - lies each day
Are you believing - what they say?
Pulpit preachers - selling God
Making big bucks - is that enough?

Everybody, everywhere
We got a love, got a love
Got a love we gotta share

Someway - Somehow - Some place - Somewhere
Let the lion lie down with the lamb
Someway - Somehow - Some place - Somewhere
Don't use the color of the skin to judge a man

Someway - Somehow - Some place - Somewhere
Does it matter if you're gay or if you're straight?
Someway - Somehow - Some place - Somewhere
If it does you fill this world with hate

Underneath a flag
Love is just a name
But underneath the moon
We are all the same

Vanity Kills

Have you heard the latest? (you love you)
Have you seen who just walked in (vain vain vain vain)
(Uh huh, you love you) right over there
She's so vain vain vain vain
Vain vain vain vain

I'm glad you've found someone who loves you
But sad to say that someone is you
And now perhaps you'll both be happy
Guess that makes two just you and you
Someone who cares so much about you
But does that someone have to be you
Bom bom bom bom bom bom bom bom yeah
Bom bom bom bom bom bom bom bom yeah

Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, you love you
Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, it kills

So glad I found you glancing in the mirror
Gazing deeply at love's patron saint
Admire the frame, survey the scenery
Or are you just inspecting the paint
Temptation's strong modesty's so weak
High on yourself humble you ain't
Bom bom bom bom bom bom bom bom yeah
Bom bom bom bom bom bom bom bom yeah

Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, you love you
Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, you love you
Vanity kills, it don't pay bills (no way)
Vanity kills, you love you
Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, it kills

So vain, vain vain vain
You love you (yeah)
Give it, give it us, give it us
So vain, so vain, so vain

Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, you love you
Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, you love you
Vanity kills, it don't pay bills
Vanity kills, you love you

Vanity kills, if the blast don't get you
Then the fallout will

You love you

Bite The Hand

With a little faith we could raise the land
With a little hope we could move as planned
With a little faith we could raise the land
With a little hope we could move as planned
Farm the ghetto up
Feed the famine down with our nose to the grindstone
Ear to the ground
Find a steady job
Build a happy home
Farm a steady crop
Then depose the throne
We could irrigate thirst quenching lake
Make a fertile place
Thus the desert spake...

Spill the feathers up
Slash the silk might as well stop boo hooing over all that spilt milk
Empty trap, screaming eye
Seething lip, stop wondering
Why butter mountains here
Better motivate it's getting late
Assassinate the grain, co co co co commotion
Before a global war, We'd better bridge the ocean

Just like an open wound that
Forever bleeds just like an open plain
In scattered seeds or the foolish man
Believing all he reads
He begs, he pleads.

Think Again

Better call and collect
Treat me with respect
If you think our love is pedigree

Push a button... disconnect
Dial again... redirect
You're wrong... you know it isn't me

Totally misguided
Babe you're misadvised
Don't even try to fight it
You're promises are lies

Did you think our love was sacred
Well it's much too over-rated
Think again... you're wrong
Better look what heaven sent me
Think again you're wrong

Don't need a horoscope
Don't need a telescope
To see the way you cheat on me

Think I'd give up hope
Hanging by a rope
If I thought you'd never set me free

Totally misguided
Think our love is strong
Think I'd get excited?
I think you'd got it wrong

Did you think our love was sacred
Well it's much too over-rated
Think again... you're wrong
And our love's a precious memory
Better look what heaven sent me
Think again you're wrong

I'll admit to being confused
And I'm used to being used
Think again... you're wrong
So wrong... so wrong... so wrong

Think again... think again... think!
Think again... think! Think again... think!

Love to believe you - love you and leave
You're wrong... so wrong
Hate to deceive you - love you then leave
You're wrong... so wrong
No secret sneak preview - don't need to see
You're wrong... so so wrong

Never More Than Now

I had dreams and crazy schemes Never felt this way before
I had days when I got raged Never felt this way before
Endless nights that end in flights Now I feel love

Never. Never. Never more than now
Never. Never. Never more than now
Never more than now

Paralysed by vicious lies Never felt this way before
Seen hope die and grown men cry Never felt like this before
Shed lonely tears and heartfelt fears Now I feel love

Never. Never. Never more than now
Never. Never. Never more than now

A thing of beauty Lasts forever
Stretches through all time Every endeavour
No matter how hard They might try
To build you up And to bleed you dry

Never lose love. Never
Never lose love. Never
Ever, ever, ever

Never. Never. Never more than now
Never. Never. Never more than now

All Of My Heart

Once upon a time when we were friends
I gave you my heart. The story ends
No happy ever after, now were friends

Wish upon a star if that might help
The stars collide if you decide
Wish upon a star if that might help

What's it like to have loved and to lose her touch?
What's it like to have loved and to lose that much?

Well I hope and I pray
That maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract
But as a matter of fact
Now that you're gone I still want you back
Remembering
Surrendering
Remembering that part
All of my heart

Spilling up pink silk and coffee lace
You hook me up, I rendevouz at your place
Your lipstick and your lip gloss seals my fate

Sentimental powers might help you now
But skip the hearts and flowers, skip the ivory towers
You'll be disappointed and I'll lose a friend

No I won't be told there's a crock of gold At the end of the rainbow
Or that pleasure and pain, sunshine and rain
Might make this love grow

But I hope and I pray
That maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract
But as a matter of fact
Now that you're gone I still want you back
Remembering
Surrendering
The kindest cut's the cruellest part
All of my heart

Yes I hope and I pray
That maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
And I shrug and I say
That maybe today
You'll come home soon
Remembering
Surrendering
Surrendering that part - All of my heart
