The Pacific Age

Stay

You say you gotta go now
Well that’s OK
Run away
Like some lost child

You say I never cared much
That’s no lie
Run Away
don’t waste your time

You never listen
You never did
But before you walk away
There’s just one thing I’ve got to say

Stay
Why won’t you stay
Run away
Like some black rose

You say I never loved you
So you’re taking sides
But when there seems no reason
It’s just jealousy and pride

You never listen
You never did
But before you walk away
There’s just one thing I’ve got to say

Stay
Why won’t you stay
Run away
Like some black rose

But before you walk away
There’s just one thing I’ve got to say
Stay
Why won’t you stay
Run away
Like some black rose

Kisses over oceans like scarlet coloured knives
The Universal Wheel that dominates our lives
Run away
Like some black rose

Repeat 3 times

Forever (Live and Die)

I never wanted another
Come over to me and discover
How I want to be near you
And you need to be far away
You always seem to make me feel at home
Hey you

People like
I never knew, I never knew, I never knew why
You make me wanna cry
I never knew, I never knew, I never knew why
Forever live and die

I look at all of the people
Doing it over and over
You never get any older
I wish that you could be here
I look at you and I
Make the same mistakes
Hey you

People like
I never knew, I never knew, I never knew why
You make me wanna cry
I never knew, I never knew, I never knew why
Forever Live and Die

I never knew, I never knew, I never knew why
You make me wanna cry
I never knew, I never knew, I never knew why
Forever Live and Die

Repeat to fade

The Pacific Age

The Pacific Age
Is growing strong
It’s arm’s embrace witth a killing grace
It shakes your hand as it takes your place

The modern age
Like a slow revenge
A wave that breaks over distant shores
It begs for mercy
And it take some more and more and more

The Pacific Age
Comes down like rain
Washing over us again and again
It’s spreading west
Like a speeding train
As the wheels slow down and we lose the game

The Pacific Age
Tells no lies
A dream that calls like an open door
It keeps you hoping
And it takes some more and more and more

The Pacific Age
Comes down like rain
Washing over us again and again
It’s spreading west
Like a speeding train
As the wheels slow down and we lose the game

The Pacific Age
Comes down like rain
Washing over us again and again
It’s spreading west
like a speeding train
As the wheels slow down and we lose the game

The Pacific Age
Has no regrets
It feeds on dreams
It wins its bets
A new dawn breaks from east to west
And the plans we made stop making sense

The Pacific Age
It calls your name
It bites you hand, you feel no pain
And racing home. you run in vane
As your heart slows down and you lose the game

The Dead Girls

Those girls are laughing now
They take my breath away
And all these dreams I’ce had
Come back to me

The light is never on
They haven’t fixed it yet
But catholic girls, they never fear
They grew up with that

Those girls are always dreaming
They need your sympathy
Their vision’s fading now
Changing by degree

So take me away
Life is never this strange
Counting your blessings
When you’re out of rain

Those girls are laughing now
They take my breath away
In all these dreams I’ve had
the dead girls say

Counting our blessings like an extra day
We turn and walk away
Counting our blessings like an extra day
We prayed you wouldn’t stay

The dead girls never care
They never were that way
The dead girls never peak
Not today

Shame

If there’s one thing I know
Things are gonna change
There’s gonna be a different ending
Though I’m not one to complain

But there’s never been a right time
And we’ve never been too far
But you’re the only single reason I know
That’s holding back my heart

Take your kiss from my mouth
Take your heart from my heart
This will never happen again
You know that your promises
Won’t last for one day
God knows it’s a shame
But it’s always the way

And the second time
Just wouldn’t be the same
But you’re changing with your faces and
You’re gonna be lost again
If you’re with or without me
I’ve made up my mind
Well I’m hoping and praying
But you’re running out of time

Take your kiss from my mouth
Take your heart from my heart
this will never happen again
You know that your promises
Won’t last for one day
God knows it’s a shame
But it’s always the way

Take your kiss from my mouth
Take your heart from my heart
This will never happen again
You know that your promises
Won’t last for one day
God knows it’s a shame
But it’s always the way

God know it’s a shame
But it’s always the way

God know it’s a shame
But it’s always, it’s always the way

Southern

I remember that Monday morning
When I was subpoenaed to be in court

Many things ran through my mind
I started thinking about the people
All day long, trying to think of something to say to the people

Are you ready for the question?
All in favour, let it be known by standing on you feet

I want young men and young women, who are not alive today
But who will come into this world, with new privileges
And new opportunities
I want them to know and see that these new privileges and opportunities
Did not come without somebody suffering and sacrificing for

Freedom is never given to anybody

Like anybody
I would like to live a long life
Longevity has its place
But I’m not concerned about that now
I just want to do God’ will
And he has allowed me to go up to the mountian
And I’ve looked over
And I’ve seen the promise land
I may not get there with you
But I want you to know tonight
That we as a people
Will get to the promise land
So I’m happy tonight, I’m not worried about anything
I’m not fearing any man
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord

Glory Hallelujah, Glory Hallelujah
Glory Hallelujah, Glory Hallelujah
His truth is marching on

Flame of Hope

There’s a flame of hope
Burning in my heart
And there’s a strange emotion
Tearing me apart
Cause I know
I know
Cause I know

There’s a flame of hope
Calling out your name
But when my arms embrace you
It extinguishes the flame

Cause I know
I know
Cause I know

Goddess of Love

(She’s okay)
(She’s okay)
(hey)
(She’s okay)
(She’s okay)
(Hey)

Goddess of love
Goddess of love
She never slows down
And she can’t get enough
The Goddess of love
The Goddess of love
She’s holding her heart to the stars above

She can’t afford dreams
And her clothes are old
She can’t afford hope
Wouldn’t be so bold
But she’s holding his heart
And she won’t let go again

She’s a femme fatal
Well that’s what they say
But she knows he couldn’t love her
Any other way
Cause she’s holding him now
And she won’t let go again
Yes, she’s holding him now
And she won’t let go again

Goddess of love
Goddess of love
She never slows down
And she can’t get enough
The Goddess of love
The Goddess of love
She’s holding her heart to the stars above

She never slows down
And she doesn’t play straight
Just cruising around in her own sweet way
But she’s taking her time
And he’s gonna get fooled again
She learned about life
Til she wished shew were dead
So she treats that guy like a hole in the head
Can you see him now
He’ll never get lucky again

Goddess of love
Goddess of love
She never slows down
And she can’t get enough
The Goddess of love
The Goddess of love
She’s holding her heart to the stars above

The Goddess of love (x6)
Heart and soul

She’s the Goddess of love as she covers the gorund
She looks just great and she never slows down
And she’s holding his heart and she won’t let go again
Yes, she’s holding his heart and she won’t let go again
Oh, she’s holding his heart and she won’t let go again
Yes, she’s holding his heart and she won’t let go again

Oh, she’s holding his heart and she won’t let go again

We Love You

We’ve got to get a message to the stars above
Like radios in heaven hearing just enough
And every single tear drop along the way
We put them in our pockets for a rainy day

But here we are in trouble
Like we always are
Just praying for a miracle
And reaching for stars

We love you
Would die for you
We need you
Every day

We got to get a message to the promised land
Like semaphores in motion so they’ll understand
But every single vision that we saw today
We didn’t quite believe it in the usual way
Yet here we are in heaven
Who could want for more
We always end up getting what we’re asking for

We love you
Would die for you
We need you
Every day

It’s just another promise like we’ve heard before
We’re never really knowing what we’re fighting for

We love you
Would die for you
We need you
Every day

We love you
Wouldn’t leave you
We miss you
Far away

We love you
Would die for you
We need you
Every day

We miss you
Far away

We love you
Would die for you
We need you
Every day

Watch Us Fall

Here we come again
Like a message in the pouring rain
And every now and then
I still call your name

Like partners in crime
Every once in a while
Like the fishes at sea
It’s just the life we lead

We’re going up
We’re going down again

We’re going up
We’re going down again

Watch us fall

And time stood still
In a distant town
I know you
I know you much too well
Last year you said
It’s time to settle down
Last time I saw you
You were still running around

Going up
Going down again

Watch us fall
Watch us fall

Remember when you said
It’s time to settle down
Well last time I saw you
You were still running around

Going up
Going down again
We’re going up
We’re coming down again

Watch us fall
Watch us fall
Watch us fall
Watch us fall
