Growing Pains

Kiss the Rain

Hello
Can you hear me?
Am I getting through to you?

Hello
Is it late there?
Is there laughter on the line?
Are you sure you're there alone?

'Cause I'm
Trying to explain
Something's wrong
Ya just don't sound the same

Why don't you
Why don't you
Go outside
Go outside

Kiss the rain
Whenever you need me
Kiss the rain
Whenever I'm gone too long.

If your lips
Feel lonely and thirsty
Kiss the rain
And wait for the dawn.

Keep in mind
We're under the same sky
And the night's
As empty for me as for you

If you feel
You can't wait till morning
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain

Hello
Do you miss me?
I hear you say you do
But not the way I'm missin' you

What's new?
How's the weather?
Is it stormy where you are?
You sound so close but it feels like you're so far

Oh would it mean anything
If you knew
What I'm left imagining
In my mind
In my mind
Would you go
Would you go
Kiss the rain

And you'd fall over me
Think of me
Think of me
Think of me
Only me

Kiss the rain
Whenever you need me
Kiss the rain
Whenever I'm gone too long
If your lips
Feel lonely and tempted
Kiss the rain
And wait for the dawn

Keep in mind
We're under the same sky
And the night's
As empty for me as for you

If you feel
You can't wait till morning

Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain
Kiss the rain

Hello
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,
Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover
Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover
Her needles and pins hold the pieces together,
She'll thread your pearls with her words of wisdom,
In the palm of her hand, your future is there running

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,
There's no perfect choice, as you walk in with your future
Be still a child on your bed of eggshell,
Behind your first steps, it's her shadows that cushion
your fall

All questions will simply beg,
The most innocent replies.
She'll make you a daisy chain
And cry as you walk away.

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,
Her needles and pins hold the pieces together,
She'll thread your pearls with her words of wisdom,
A shoulder to cry on,
She'll leave all the lights on for you
Yeah she will leave them on for you

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,
Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover
Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover

All questions will simply beg,
The most innocent replies.
She'll make you a daisy chain
And cry as you walk away.

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,
One day soon you'll be one or the other,
You'll offer forgiveness, my savior, my sinner,
And then you will see that the circle begins here with
Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,
Father and Son, Brother, Lover

One day soon you'll be one or the other.
and you'll see that the circle begins here with me

Mother, Daughter, Sister, Lover,

We can grow together
We can walk together
We can laugh, we can
cry together
Mother, Daughter,
Sister, Lover
Father, and Son,
Brother, Lover
One day soon
I'll discover
what will be...
one or the other

A Few Words Too Many

Wait a minute
What did you say
Did I hear you say
There's no real reason left for you to stay?
Under your breath I hear your soft voice break
Can we still be friends
I hear you talking but you're just not making sense
I've been hoping for a happy ending
Now I know that there won't be any

Just a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid
Oh I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
All over

A broken shadow falls across your face
As you hesitate
Trying to think of all the things you need to say

Bare face the truth lies at my feet
As you turn away
Sometimes silence has a way of making peace

I've been hoping for a happy ending
Now I know that there won't be any

Just a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid
Oh I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
All over again

Staring at the ceiling
Wondering just what you're feel
Was it me
Or was it you
What's the difference
If I knew
Maybe I wouldn't feel so empty
If I hadn't heard
A few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid

Oh I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
Start all over again

Oh, we could start again
We could start again

Round and round and round and round
In my head
Yeah

Wait a minute
What did you say
Did I hear you say

The Shark and the Mermaid

Without a moment's hesitation
They threw caution to the wind
He thought she must be blind not to see
He was no prince charming, no beauty
She held flowers at her fingertips
And honey fell from her lips
He dived into the ocean's wild
As she swam in the morning mist

He said if its mine it will be,
Always yours
Cast away any doubt and open up those doors

It was the shark and the mermaid
Making love again
It was the shark and the mermaid
Falling in love again
It was the shark and the mermaid
Proving everybody wrong
It was the shark and the mermaid
Swimming by again

As they grow in mind and body
And the days turned into years
He thought one day she might go away
But her love overshadowed his fears
Under the liquid sky
Where they lived they were
Legends to behold
Fate distracted by their simple charm
Left them there to love alone

Now the angels wait patiently
For the shadows down below
They stop and smile because

It's just the shark and the mermaid
Making love again
It's just the shark and the mermaid
Falling in love again
It's just the shark and the mermaid
Proving everybody wrong
It's just the shark and the mermaid
And the mermaid, and the mermaid

Nobody thought that their love would last
Everybody looked and everybody laughed
But the mermaid and the shark
They just slipped away
Nothing stopped them
No one got in the way
Standing together as lovers and friends
They stayed together
Their love knew no end
Proving everybody wrong
They grew together
They were strong
Everybody was wrong

It's just the shark and the mermaid
Making love again
It's just the shark and the mermaid
Falling in love again
It's just the shark and the mermaid
Together to the end
It's just the shark and the mermaid
And the mermaid, and the mermaid
Making love
It was the shark and the mermaid
Making love, making love, making love

Tell Me

Dreaming
But I'm not sleeping
Or have I died
Died of life

Swimming
As I'm sinking
I'm holding onto
Letting go, yeah

Oh, how does it feel
Making love to me like you do

Would you be me
The woman in me
Would you like to be

Having Trouble With the Language

Picture postcard honesty
In the land of hopeless dreams
That man in my sitting room
Only lives behind the screen

Oh, look at me happily
In this third party situation
A married man with the cutest smile
Is not quite what he seems

Oh, I'm having trouble with the language
Having trouble getting through
Haven't learned my lessons well
So I don't know what to do

Having trouble with the language
Can you voulez-vous?
Never catch a falling knife
Oh, that's just my point of view yeah

I was raised a simple man
Who always leaves the truth behind
Always stands on the outside
No matter how hard she tries
It's been a while
The ready smile
I've got to go
Oh look at the time
If only she knew
What the rest must do
She would surely break down and cry

Oh, I'm having trouble with the language
Yeah, having trouble getting through
Haven't learned my lessons well
So I don't know what to do

Having trouble with the language
Do you voulez-vous?
Never catch a falling knife
Oh, that's just my point of view
That's just my view

In a storm electric
The lightning struck his head, twice
Now I'm a vegetarian
Because the pig in the middle is dead
Oh yeah
Oh no

Downtown at the funeral home
There's a dark cloud over our heads
She looked better in a black suit
But he looked better dead

Oh, having trouble with the language
With a knock, knock, knock
Having trouble breaking through
And a knock, knock, knock
Yeah, no you don't know what to do

Having trouble with the language
Do you voulez-vous?
Never catch a falling knife
Oh, that's just my point of view

Oh yeah
Oh, is talking 'bout
Having trouble with the language
Do you voulez-vous?
Never catch a falling knife
Oh, that's just my point of view

Having trouble with the language
Having trouble getting through
I still don't know
I don't know what to do

You Send Me Flying

I don't want to make a habit of this
But seeing you is like getting a fix
Every time I kid myself, I'll never do it again
Definition of love on a cliff
A lemming has no alternative
I want to die in your arms, that's my
suicide wish

It's only 13 hours till I leave the ground
And I may never come down again
So will you meet me there on a ride
somewhere
Just a left at the sun, before it sets
Let's go naked, would you dare?

You, you, send me flying, you send me flying
You send me flying, knocking me over,
You, you send me flying, you send me flying,
You send me flying, flying
Over the moon for joy.

I don't want to make a fool of myself,
Especially since you're with someone else,
Outwardly demure I would die for you,
Will you forive my inclination to tell,
I throw my wishes down your wishing well,
I want you now, in a not too subtle way,
Do you want me too
So will you meet me there, on a ride somewhere,
Just a right at the moon, before it moves
Lets go naked, would you dare?

You, you, send me flying, you send me flying
You send me flying, knocking me over,
You, you send me flying, you send me flying,
You send me flying, flying
Over the moon for joy.

You send me flying,
You send me flying,
You send me flying

You, you, send me flying, you send me flying
You send me flying, knocking me over,
You, you send me flying, you send me flying,
You send me flying, flying
Over the moon for joy.

Definition of love on a cliff,
A lemming has no alternative,
I want to die in your arms, that's my suicide
wish

Opposites Attract

I've watched the morning undress you
So many times but I still catch my every breath
It hasn't always been easy
So many changes
But time washes over us

No you don't blame me for all that I'm not
For all that I am you say is so much more than good enough

Who said that opposites don't attract
If you say this then I'll always say that
Who said that opposites don't attract
If black is white, and white is black
Then it's the fact we're both different
That makes us the same
That makes us the same

Friends say we've got nothing in common
In different shoes but it's the same ground we're walking on
Everything that is different is still,
Still talking under siege, but that won't pull us apart

You say you love me for all that I'm not
And I still love you for all that you are

Who said that opposites don't attract
If you say this then I'll always say that
Who says that opposites don't attract
If black is white, and white is black
Then it's the fact we're both different
That makes us the same

But we always
Find ourselves
In the middle
Oh I don't blame you for all that you're not
For all that you are is so much more than good enough

Who said that opposites don't attract
If you say this then I'll always say that
Who said that opposites don't attract
You and me, me and you
Yeah, it's the fact that we're different
Yeah, it's the fact that we're different
That makes us the same

I'll never ask you to change

Please Don't Shout

You shake me free of my dreams
From this bed I hit the floor
What day is it anyway?
Go away and close the door

I want to cry in silence
You want to talk some sense
I've just stopped trying
It feels like I'm dying

Please don't shout
It's only anger that you're waking
Please don't shout
Can't you see I'm not listening

Today I cry for my sins
Tomorrow call me a fool
The pressure drives me deeper
It's like there's nothing left to lose

Oh, anger is my best friend
Why don't you pull up an easy chair
You can't save anyone else
You can't save me from myself

Please don't shout
It's only anger that you're waking
Please don't shout
Can't you see I'm not listening, no

Please don't shout
It's my patience that you're wasting
Please don't shout
Can't you see I'm not listening

I'm not listening
I'm not listening
Stop your shouting
I'm not listening

If only I could release
Instead of talking to myself
Every feeling that I have
Would you bury all my doubts

But you can't walk in my shoes
Every mile just feels like two
I won't keep explaining
I won't keep on trying
So what if I'm hiding
You're giving me a headache

Please don't shout
It's only anger that you're waking
Please don't shout
Can't you see I'm not listening, no

Please don't shout
It's my patience that you're wasting
Please don't shout
Can't you see I'm not listening

Please don't shout
Oh no

I stopped listening
I'm not listening
No, I'm not listening
Can't you hear me
I'm not listening

Much Change Too Soon

Much change too soon
Under the sign of the cross, time moves
Indulge me, will you protect me
Let's swim out to the past
And drown in moments that last
Will I be beatiful to you
Will you save me, will you protect me
Come to the waters edge
Where you can draw your cirlces
Around me, around me

Much change too soon
Even the dawn chorus changed her tune
Indulge me, will you protect me
From the passing of time
Let all our years pour like wine
Will I be beautiful to you
So then when we stand together,
Three decades on
Will you breathe your life into me
Under the eyes of heaven, can we
Make time stand still
The evergreen's fading, as time turns her pages
Everything's changing but me and you

It is always the same
There's nothing left but remains
Still, will I be beautful to you
Indulge me, oh protect me
I know there's always a risk
Time has a deadly french kiss
So come to the waters edge
Where you can draw your circles
Around me, around me

Much change too soon
I often wonder why its so
Watch over me
Stay, the years with me
Oh come to my water's edge
Will you come to my water's edge

Much change too soon
Water's edge, the water's edge
Come to the water
With me
Much change too soon.

First Time

Lets go
Yeah, your memories are too kind

Behind every closed door lies another room
Waiting there for you

Should I open the Pandora's little box
Like she wanted me to
Outside the time and space we share
E always equals MC squared

Don't you know

Nothing ever tastes quite as good
Quite as sweet
As it does the first time
Yeah, the first time

Nothing ever felt quite as bad
Quite as sad
As it did the last time

Building castles on quicksand
Wearing all the emperor's new clothes
Reaching down through the looking glass
Where am I on the yellow brick road

Always ending where I began
Adam left Eve the original sin
Don't you know

Nothing ever tastes quite as good
Quite as sweet
As it does the first time
Yeah, the first time

Nothing ever felt quite as bad
Quite as sad
As it did the last time

Law of diminishing returns
Will I live long enough to learn
Don't you know

I don't think you know
I don't think you know

I know I know what I said
I know I know what I said the first time
Yes the first time

I hopet o God that this won't be
I hope to God that this ain't the last time
It feels like the first

Nothing ever tastes quite as good
Quite as sweet
As it does the first time
Yeah, the first time

Nothing ever feels quite as bad
Quite as sad
As it did the last time

Nothing tastes that good
Nothing ever tastes that good
Nothing ever tastes that good
Nothing tastes like it should

Don't you know
Nothing ever cuts quite as deep
Quite as sweet
As it does the first time
Yeah, the first time

Nothing ever hurts quite as much
As a touch
Left by the last time
The first time
The first time

Oh I want the last time to be like like
The first time

Well you know

Nothing ever tastes that good
Nothing ever tastes that good
