Freeway Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : On The Beach

She throws her hair into the February breeze
She hears it singing through the branches of the trees
A song of something you know so well
And she's still looking for a freeway

She hears the sound of distant planes across the sky
She catches fleeting glimpse of fading red tail lights
Into tomorrow she gently sleeps
And she's still dreaming of a freeway

Far away, there's a piece of luck somewhere
Shining like a star in the night
Dream on lady, till the early morning light
Takes your dream to be free away

Crack That Mould Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : On The Beach

You got to break the back of the mould you were made in
Crack the shell, that's how it's got to be
Nothing for certain, ain't no way of knowing
Only believe in things that you see

Flow with the river, run with the tide
Mix with your brother, 'cos he's right by your side
Crack that mould

Little pretty chicken you can't stay in there forever
Now there ain't no such thing as only one kind of weather
You got to bend, learn, take the rough with the smooth
Understand everything
Crack that mould

Now there ain't no such thing as only one kind of weather

Pick up them shoes, go running down that road
You know that precondition is such a heavy load
You got to live love, put down that written word
Crack that mould

Now there ain't no such thing as only one kind of weather

Joys Of Christmas Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

I see all the tough guys still not 25
Dying on their feet
Coughing, honking, cadging cigarettes
And still out on the street
Well, they got no money, nowhere to go
Fathers of 2, 3 maybe 4, what are they gonna do
Jimmy got a busted mouth in a fight last night
He says he's OK
Going down to the workies club (that's a laugh)
To buy something strong and take the pain away

Joys of Christmas
Joys of Christmas
Northern style

Flashing Christmas light of police blue
Go spinning down the street
Women try to drag the men from pubs
Into the stores
And work hands in empty pockets deep
We stand outside the neon ice and wish ourselves the best
He says he's OK, out of work and fighting
Is all he's ever known
And laughs and says I worry too much anyway

Joys of Christmas
Joys of Christmas
Northern style
Let's drink to the likes of Jim
Before we all go insane
And please don't ask me why
It'll take too long to explain
Joys of Christmas

I Can't Dance To That Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

Now there's no storyline
Just a real good time
And I don't want to seem to be mistaken
But there's a tale to tell
On this road to hell
It's in between the lines the case I'm making

Oh, lord, look my way
Save me from these crazy things I see
I don't know what's going on round here these days
But I can't dance to that
Oh, I can't dance to that
So let me dance to this
'Cos I can't dance to that

If you'll excuse me please
You see I got to go
And take myself before I'm past redemption
A voice is calling out
As if I didn't know
This wretched road is paved with good intentions
All the way
Down this Judas track
I know it so well
And I ain't going back
I don't know what happened to the good time songs
But I can't dance to that
Oh, I can't dance to that
So let me dance to this
'Cos I can't dance to that

Tell me what you know
Take away these chains
What stood in front of me it looks so pretty
But I can't dance to a cold machine
Oh, lord, and every drummer you know just what I mean
Oh, I can't dance to that
So let me dance to this

Windy Town Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

Driving home from the highland line
We done some gigs on the Clyde and the Tyne
They flew us in from a Hamburg strip
The taste of Dusseldorf still on our lips
And on the bus there is a friend of mine
We go way back to the scene of the crime
We sit up front and share a cigarette
And try to remember what we tried to forget

He say "Do you remember?"
He say "Do you recall?"
I say yeah I remember, oh, I remember it all
Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
Late night trains shunting down by the river
I remember windy town

We come so far and we move so fast
Making hay see it all go past
Round the world and round again
Up and down on that gravy train
but every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
The east coast cross winds on the cold wet stone
I remember windy town

The freezing corners and the empty streets
The burning passion and the cold wet feet
Three tricky miles home every night
Dodging from the shadows underneath those amber light
No car for kissing and nowhere to go
Except inside each other and I loved you so
I held your face as you shivered in the rain
Girl I'll always love you and I'll love you again
Oh everytime, everytime
Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
Late night trains shunting down by the river
I remember windy town
Every time that cold wind blows
Every time I hear that sound
The east coast cross winds on the cold wet stone
I remember windy town

Gonna Buy A Hat Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

She talks like thunder
She really lets you know
She keep changing the rules
And leave you nowhere to go
She bore you rigid with the party line
She's so far left she's gonna get left behind

He wants six pretty white spots on each side of the dice
He wants it all to be equal but he needs to throw twice
Now there's a guy in the corner with a smiling gaze
He turns to me and says
I'm gonna buy a hat
'Cos I think it's gonna rain
Got caught out coming here
Ain't gonna get caught again
I'm gonna buy a big one
Like that Mr Gorbachov
And when it's raining all this crap
Oh my hat will keep it off

Now take a look at all them leaders
Desperation in their eyes
The tight faces smiles that cannot hide it
They know no more than you or I

So I'm gonna buy a hat
'Cos here they come again
And when the start to blah-blah
It's you and me that gets the rain

Curse Of The Traveller Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

On the restless road to nowhere
There's no certain peace it seems
Desire to keep on moving
till the river of dreams
Is it just because someone told you
Is it just because you found
Old freedom feels uneasy when duty is around

When allegiance asks the questions
Old freedom twists and turns
And chokes on codes of honour
On the sword of no return

And it's the curse of the traveller
The curse of the traveller
Got a hold of me
And it won't let you be

And in sleepless nights
You'll call her name
And feel loneliness cold to the bone
And when the daylight breaks
This old tired heart aches
To be such a long way, such a long way from home

And you long for the harbourlights
But you'll never be free
Of the craving for refuge
And the call of the sea
Always wanting to sell up
But always needing to buy
So till the road leads to somewhere
And that river runs dry

It's the curse of the traveller
Ain't gonna let you be
The curse of the traveller
And it sure got a hold of me

Let's Dance Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

When you sing of the joy only love can bring
Heaven knows it's in my heart and my soul
Caught in a world full of tears
So many bad times and fears
So while there's a chance and you're near

Let's dance
Let's dance

There's a world far away from the one we see
There's a dream I will never let go
One thing is certainly true
This moment's for me and for you
So while there's not a thing that we can do

Let's dance
Let's dance

Que Sera Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

There's a feathered cloud in an open sky
And the pale-tailed moon goes sailing by
This old engine housing's streaked with rain
And we're pushing down on them chains again
Friend we're like the wind that blows
Like the sea we come and go

And I'm not trying to tell you
How I think that it should be
I know deep down inside
We are yearning to be free
And you're only gonna think of No 1
So what am I to say
No matter what you do
We're always hurting anyway
Forever our hearts will be
Always running for what we see
By the strings of this old guitar
I swear, Que sera

And you're rolling down old runway ten
And the present becomes the past and then
Rotating through the driving rain
And you're way above those clouds again
And I'm not trying to tell you
How I think that it should be
I know deep down inside
We are yearning to be free
And you're only gonna think of No 1
So what am I to say
No matter what you do
We're always hurting anyway

Forever our hearts will be
Always running for what we see
By the strings of this old guitar
I swear, Que sera

Loving You Again Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

It's been so long now since we first met
But the time and place I will never forget
Darling, never

Trough good and bad we stood the tested time
You say I'm yours and darling you're still mine
Forever

So smile for me
'Cos it's there for all to see
After all this time
Through the rain and tears
After all this time
After all these years
I'm only loving you again

And I'll keep holding on girl I won't let go
I want you near me where ever I go
Please say, forever

And I give thanks for what you've given me
And in my heart girl there'll always be
A light
That shines through the darkest night
After all this time
Through the rain and tears
After all this time
After all these years
I'm only loving you again

So smile for me
'Cos it's there for all to see
After all this time
Through the rain and tears
After all this time
After all these years
I'm only loving you again

Through the rain and tears
till the sun dries up the sea
till the rivers they run dry
I'm gonna be loving you again

That Girl Of Mine Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

There's a time and place everywhere I go
Where the river meets the sea
Somewhere between the gates of dreams
And the turning of the key
There's a cutting edge there's a real fine line
And it's caught in come and go
And you're leaving what you thought you knew
To what you've come to know
When the twilight turns at the end of day
And the angels kiss the moon
There's a diamond sun everywhere she goes
And there ain't no other way
I'm gonna dream tonight
By that pale moonlight
till the morning comes my way

I'm walking tall
And I'm walking fine
And I'm up there
With that girl of mine

And I'm standing in the twilight now
Yeah I'm standing by her side
Oh I'm gazing in that gate of dreams
Underneath that midnight sky
'Cos there's a diamond sun everywhere she goes
And there ain't no other way
I'm gonna dream tonight
By that pale moonlight
till the morning comes my way

I'm walking tall
And I'm walking fine
And I'm up there
With that girl of mine

September Blue Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

Your head spins round on a Monday
And the daylight's in your eyes
How you laughed and cursed tomorrow
Now he's standing by your side
You touched the stars at midnight
The whole world seem to shout 'Hello'
Now your throat is tired and heavy
And only one can go

I'll be all right though I may cry
The tears that flow they always dry
It's just that I would rather be with you now
And every time I see that star
I will say a prayer for you
Now and forever September blue

I'll be all right though I may cry
The tears that flow they always dry
It's just that I would rather be with you now
And every time I see that star
I will say a prayer for you
Now and forever September blue
'Cos I'll always love you
September blue

I Don't Care Anymore Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing With Strangers

I don't care anymore
All the things I hear you say
Don't care anymore
You're always lying anyway
Got a sweet little girl
And it's such a sunny day
I heard it all before
Gonna hear it some more
But you must understand one thing
I don't care anymore

I got a sweet little girl
And it's such a sunny day
I heard it all before
Gonna hear it some more
I don't care
I don't care anymore

The Road To Hell (Part I) Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

Stood still on a highway
I saw a woman
By the side of the road
With a face that I knew like my own
Reflected in my window
Well she walked up to my quarterlight
And she bent down real slow
A fearful pressure paralysed me in my shadow
She said 'son what are you doing here
My fear for you has turned me in my grave'
I said 'mama I come to the valley of the rich
Myself to sell'
She said 'son this is the road to hell'

On your journey cross the wilderness
From the desert to the well
You have strayed upon the motorway to hell

The Road To Hell (Part II) Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

Well I'm standing by the river
But the water doesn't flow
It boils with every poison you can think of
And I'm underneath the streetlight
But the light of joy I know
Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
And the perverted fear of violence
Chokes the smile on every face
And common sense is ringing out the bell
This ain't no technological breakdown
Oh no, this is the road to hell

And all the roads jam up with credit
And there's nothing you can do
It's all just pieces of paper flying away from you
Oh look out world, take a good look
What comes down here
You must learn this lesson fast and learn it well
This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway
Oh no, this is the road
Said this is the road
This is the road to hell

You Must Be Evil Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

I come home from work
I see my little girl
She's crying on the floor
She's been watching that TV
This ain't late no, this ain't even dinner time
To show them things on that screen
What's wrong with you

You must be evil

Oh I know why you do it
You're just looking for sensation
You got a hold of something
You tell us that it's news
You don't have to show that stuff
Can't you show us some respect
You can tell us we don't need to see it
We don't need those cheap effects

You must be evil
You must be evil
I wish you were here

You don't have to show that stuff
You ain't fooling no-one
You made my little girl cry
I wish you were here
We all know why you do it
Sometimes you even slow it down
You're giving out some bad ideas here
I can't believe that you don't realise

You must be evil

Texas Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

Catch a sight of long lost summers
Catch a dream inside your hands
Take me where that lady comes from
Take me to that far off distant land
Rain comes pouring past my window
Turns my sky from blue to grey
I ain't never been to Texas
But I sure gonna meet that lady
One fine day

When Texas smiles around my bedroom
Who could ever turn her down
Tears of joy roll down my pillow
While cold north winds are blowing all around me
But I don't care, my dream is westbound
Far across that sky so grey

I ain't never been to Texas
But I sure gonna meet that lady
One fine day

She's my little Texas
My little Texas

Looking For A Rainbow Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA

Well we come down to the valley
Yea we're looking for the honey
I see a rainbow
I say that's the land of milk and honey

Me and my cousin
Me and my brother

Come looking for a rainbow
Yea we're looking for a rainbow

Well we come down to the valley
Got our babies in our arms
Yea we're Maggie's little children
And we're looking for Maggie's farm

Me and my cousin
Me and my brother
My little sister too
Come looking for a rainbow
Yea we're looking for a rainbow

Well we come down to the valley
We ain't far away no more
You can't leave us dying this time
'Cos we're all around your door

Me and my cousin
Me and my brother
My little sister too
Come looking for a rainbow
Yea we're looking for a rainbow

Your Warm And Tender Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

I was lost in the deep and darkest night
No direction, not a single hope in sight
When I saw a fire burning brightly through
The storm that raged above
In the shadows of your warm and tender love

I was a stranger to the land and life around
In constant danger, being hurt by what I found
And of hurting what I treasured most
Foolish eagle never dove
Till I fell upon your warm and tender love
In the shadows of your warm and tender love

Now I gaze in peace at the lonely sky
That is raging high above
Safe in the shadows of your warm and tender, tender love
In the shadows of your warm and tender love

Daytona Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

Diamond dream when the sun don't shine
I close my eyes to see
Twelve wild horses in silver chains
Calling out to me

Oh Daytona
Shine your light on me
Oh Daytona
Shine your light on me

Now she ain't easy so you take good care
Or she will scream down on your lust
She can please you like no other
Or she can leave you eating dust
Oh Daytona
Shine your light on me
Burning passion heat my day
Let me sit inside your wonder
Cloudless daydream, oh dance of dances
To have tamed the sound of thunder
Oh Daytona
Shine your light on me
Oh Daytona
Shine your light on me

That's What They Always Say Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

At the first bell of the day
They rise up from where they lay
And look down with the promise in their hands
A promise to get out
This ain't what it's all about
There's always lots of reasons for their plans
When that golden sun shines through
There's always one more thing to do
Just one more stab into the wishing well

That's what they always say
I'm getting out
That's what they always say
Ain't that just what they always say
That's what they always say
Just one more little thing left in my way
That's what they always say
Ain't that just what they always say

I'm getting out, I'm holding on
I'm hanging in, the time is wrong
And every morning brings another reason
A piece of cake, no lion share
Just one more dice and you'll be there
That golden bridge is just around the bend

That's what they always say
I'm getting out
That's what they always say
Ain't that just what they always say
That's what they always say
Just one more little thing left in my way
That's what they always say
Ain't that just what they always say

Tomorrow is another day
The money junkie fades away
That golden bridge is just around the bend

That's what they always say
I'm getting out
That's what they always say
Ain't that just what they always say
That's what they always say
Just one more little thing left in my way
That's what they always say
Ain't that just what they always say

I just wanna be with you
No matter what they say
Just wanna be with you
Every night and every day
Cold nights, dark days
I wanna be with you

I just wanna be with you
Till the final curtain falls
Just wanna be with you
Then know nothing at all
Cold nights, dark days
I wanna be with you
Wanna be with you

I know there's a price to pay
For doing what we do
But I just wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you

Don't wanna hold you down
Whatever that you do
Shine on, sweet angel
'Cos I just wanna be with you
I wanna be with you

Tell Me There's A Heaven Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell

The little girl she said to me
What are these things that I can see
Each night when I come home from school
And mama calls me in for tea
Oh every night a baby dies
And every night a mama cries
What makes those men do what they do
To make that person black and blue
Grandpa says their happy now
They sit with God in paradise
With angels' wings and still somehow
It makes me feel like ice

Tell me there's a heaven
Tell me that it's true
Tell me there's a reason
Why I'm seeing what I do
Tell me there's a heaven
Where all those people go
Tell me they're all happy now
Papa tell me that it's so

So do I tell her that it's true
That there's a place for me and you
Where hungry children smile and say
We wouldn't have no other way
That every painful crack of bones
Is a step along the way
Every wrong done is a game plan
To that great and joyful day

And I'm looking at the father and the son
And I'm looking at the mother and the daughter
And I'm watching them in tears of pain
And I'm watching them suffer
Don't tell that little girl
Tell me
Tell me there's a heaven
Tell me that it's true
Tell me there's a reason
Why I'm seeing what I do

Tell me there's a heaven
Where all those people go
Tell me they're all happy now
Papa tell me that it's so

Auberge Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

On the hard fast train
On the road to gain
Something gets right throught to your telling bone
There's a sudden itch
An electric twitch
Sometimes I swear this body's got a mind of its own
This is the naked truth
This is the light
There's only one place left to go

Auberge

You meet a silent type
On a windy trail
With a shiny cloak and an unseen silver dagger
You can talk till you ache
Give yourself one more break
You can tell by the look on his face
that it just doesn't matter
This is the naked truth
This is the light
There's only one place left to go

Auberge

Give me a weekend
Give me a day
Don't like what I'm seeing though I hear what you say
Think with a dagger
And you'll die on your knees
Begging for mercy
Singing please mister please
This is the naked truth
This is the light
There's only one place left to go

Auberge

Gone Fishing Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

I'm going fishing
I got me a line
Nothin' I do's gonna' make the difference
So I'm taking the time

And you ain't never gonna' be happy
Anyhow, anyway
So I'm going fishing
And I'm going today

I'm going fishing
Sounds crasy I know
I know nothing about fishing
But just watch me go

And when my time has come
I will look back and see
Peace on the shoreline
That could have been me

You can waste whole lifetime
Trying to be
What you think is expected of you
But you'll never be free

May as well go fishing

You're Not A Number Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

You can feel your nerve endings
They've been dead before today
You can feel them rising
Feel them rising all the way
You've got grease on your fingers
Oil on your face
Happy completely chasing the pace
Happy to find out even this late

You're not a number

There's a new sense of freedom
Come banging on your door
Deep down inside you
You've seen it all somewhere before
Somewhere in the past
Somewhere in a dream
It's got you completely and you know what it means
Happy to find out even this late

You're not a number

There's a new sense of freedom
Come banging on your door
Deep down inside you
You've seen it all somewhere before
You've got grease on your fingers
Oil on your face
And you're happy completely chasing the pace
Happy to find out even this late

You're not a number

Heaven Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

I see a turning wheel
On a dusty track
Caught in the void and empty space
In between there and back
And the paradise of going somewhere
That's still so far away
Happy, boy you bet I am
Holding on to this smile for just as long as I can

Heaven

It's all bright in front
And it's all dark behind
Livin' for the now that's in between the bridges and the signs
And getting there is still a long long way to go
While the others dream and wish
This is everything I officially need to know
Happy, boy you bet I am
Holding on to this smile for just as long as I can

Heaven

Set Me Free Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

Wake up see the morning light
This is you
This is today
You try so hard to get it right
Can't help thinking somewhere you lost your way
When was the last time
You saw a smile ?
There's a scream on every silent face you see
They're singing set me free

I got a friend
Who burns like a fire
Says there's only one thing you'll ever know
It's out there somewhere
Way out on the open road

And me I'm always looking down
Down that road out of town
Each morning and night
You can see me
I'm singing set me free
Set me free

Goodnight Auberge
I leave you now
You must sleep
While I work the day
Till I return
To dream of you
Through the night
And that free, freeway

Winter Song Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

It's a cold, cold feeling
On a real lazy wind
That blows all the way trough you
And the autumn begins

How it cuts like a sabre
How it chills to the bone
You've got cold feet and fingers
And you're thinking of home

If I put my arms around you
Take you in from the storm
From your autumn through winter
Darling I'll keep you warm

My overcoat's empty
Deep, wide and long
I got room for you darling
Till your winter, till your winter has gone

Red Shoes Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

I was born a beggar
With the garbage round my feet
The devil lived in every hole
And every corner of the street
When mistery is all there is
You got nothing to lose
So come on and buy me
Come and buy me some red red red shoes

Don't tell me what I do is wrong
Don't preach 'cos you don't know
'Cos I was left without a chance
Such a long time ago
And anything is better
Than being cut and bruised
So come and buy me some red red red shoes

Don't tell me what I do is wrong
Don't preach 'cos you don't know
'Cos I was left without a chance such a long time ago
And anything is better
Than being battered and bruised
So come on and buy me some red some red red shoes

Sing A Song Of Love To Me Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

Sing a song of love to me
As the shadows start to grow
And I won't be sad and lonely
Anymore

'Cos if you sing a song of love to me
I will always find a smile
That will warm my cold cold heart
Just for a while

Songs of love
I know so well
I've seen some days
And had some times
Lucky boy I can hear you say
You think my sun does nothing but shine

Sing a song of love to me
One more time before I go
And I won't be sad and lonely
No I won't be sad and lonely
Anymore

Every single day
All through the night time
All through the day time
Can't let your world pass through and into my way

Every second counts
He can't slow down
Every second counts
See him spin around
He's chasing his shadow
He's racing the wind
He tells us to follow
Where the ice is so thin

I hope you're holding on
I hope you're holding on
'Cos every second counts

Looking For The Summer Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

Look deep into the April face
A change has clearly taken place
Looking for the summer

The eyes take on a certain gaze
And leave behind the springtime days
Go looking for the summer

This ain't no game of kiss and tell
The implications how you know so well
Go looking for the summer

The time has come and they must go
To play the passion out that haunts you so
Looking for the summer

Remember love how it was the same
We scratched and hurt each others growing pains
We were looking for the summer

And still I stand this very day
With a burning wish to fly away
I'm still looking
Looking for the summer

And You My Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

I do not sleep tonight
I might not ever
The sins of the past have come
See how they sit down together

Outside my window
Outside my door
And I know the reason
What they've all come here for

You my love, my sweet, sweet love
Are what it's all, because of

Surrender is easy
I know you do me no harm
But your innocence haunts me
The most fatal of charms

Oh I must have done some wrong
On a dark and distant day
For I know full and well tonight
This is how that I must pay

And you my love, my sweet, sweet love
Are what it's all, because of
You my love, my sweet, sweet love
Are what it's all because of

The Mention Of Your Name Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Auberge

Time goes by and every single tear
It must have well run dry
And the lonely nights
Become a strange accepted way
And the years go past
Just like the old song says
The pain with time has healed, it couldn't last
But oh a friend like a fool
Mentions your name

Sunny days, drunken nights
You smile and say, it's alright
But oh the cold cold rain
At the mention of your name

Forgive me please
If I shrug my shoulders
When I put my friend at ease
As I get older
It's not that I don't feel colder than before
Oh I've become so good at hiding
What I feel without confiding
It's still the same, darling still the same
At the mention of your name

Nothing To Fear Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

I feel your heat in dusty whispers
The wind is cold around your moon
It's getting hard to keep our distance
I know your time is coming soon
Don't point your dream on my horizon
Don't take your rose too far from home
Please don't forget we're not each other
Each soul has black thorns of his own

I see you dancing
Your song is clear
You've got to show me, got to show me
There's nothing to fear
Nothing to fear
I have my loved ones you have yours
So let us gaze upon the feast
In God's own name let's eat together
In God's own name please come in peace
See how our children play together
While you and me we stand alone
I know we'll never be each other
If I leave you leave me alone

I see you dancing
Your song is clear
You've got to show me, got to show me
There's nothing to fear
Nothing to fear

Miles Is A Cigarette Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

The weak and hazy shades of winter sun
Come shining through
Lifting fog from the trees and a gentle warm breeze
Send it up in to the blue

Blue sky and you come creeping through my soul
Goodbye our love's smoking too
And the sound of those Italian engines
Is much more the sound of you

Miles was a cigarette smoky and long
Gonna miss what I never had
Now that cigarette is gone

God's Great Banana Skin Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

Go down my road running just as fast as I can
Nobody knows which is the better way
But when that man in the sky points his finger at you
Don't you ever think no-one's better than you

God's great banana skin
Don't you laugh at nobody
You'll let the bad luck in
God's great banana skin
It's the way that it gets you
With every day good luck comes in the strangest of ways
Just keep your head down don't listen what your ego will say
'Cos when that man in the sky points his finger at you
Don't you ever think no-one's better than you

God's great banana skin
Don't you laugh at nobody
You'll let the bad luck in
God's great banana skin
It's the way that it gets you

God's great banana skin
God's great banana skin

When that man in the sky points his finger at you
Don't you ever think no-one's better than you
Don't you ever think no-one's better than you

God's great banana skin
Gonna get you
God's great banana skin

90's Blues Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

Well I look out of my window
I see the morning cold and grey
I look out of my window
I see the morning cold and grey
I told you so many years ago
They're all gonna end up, end up this way

Well the fat man took my money
And the daughter won't give it back
The fat man took my money
Sons and daughters won't give it back
Put my family out on the street
Put my marriage on the rack

Well they steal your water
And if you want some you got to pay
The greenies point their fingers
The people know better they don't listen what they say
They live in fear and frustration
Oh their crappy lives why should they give a toss anyway

Nineties blues
Nineties blues
Nineties blues

Too Much Pride Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

Say good morning this is your lucky day
Most of your problems they're gonna slip away
Oh I'm gonna help you, I can show you the way
So give me so time my friend and hear what I say

You got too much pride, too much pride
Drive yourself crazy, you got too much pride

Take a look at the downside anyway that you choose
Out here on the upside you ain't got nothing to lose
Oh I'm gonna help you, I can show you the way
So give me some time my friend and hear what I say

You got too much pride, too much pride
Drive yourself crazy, you got too much pride

Too much pride it will drive you wild
It will burn your soul, cut you deep inside
Drag you down, get in your way
So take a look my friend listen what I say

You got too much pride, too much pride
Drive yourself crazy, you got too much pride

Boom Boom Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

Take a look what's be going on behind me
I swear to God this ain't no making of my own

That stupid cupid arrow
Lost for years and never found me
Now she's dancing on my history
And she drives the dagger home

'Cos when I see that angel walking past my window
When I see that angel walking past my door
I know what this tired old heart's been waiting, waiting for
Boom boom
Boom boom

And I can't win
There ain't no us denying
So many years of experience
Tell me it's so

That stupid cupid arrow
Lost for years and never found me
Now she's dancing on my history
And she drives the dagger home

'Cos when I see that angel walking past my window
When I see that angel walking past my door
I know what this tired old heart's been waiting, waiting for
Boom boom
Boom boom

I Ain't The Fool Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

I may look like a stranger with nothing to say
Silent in the corner while you're talking away
Your theories are endless, your lips never sleep
No time for reflection, there's no tongue in your cheek

Oh no, I ain't fool here
Oh no, I ain't fool here

The muscles in your mouth must be stronger than steel
You can talk till forever but ain't got no feel
Your scull must be empty, your brain cells run dry
Calling everybody
Learning nothing till the day that you die

Oh no, I ain't fool here
Oh no, I ain't fool here

There She Goes Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

There she goes, the one that I love
The one I've been waiting for
The one I've been dreaming of
There she goes, but she'll never be mine
Wasted all of my chances
Run clean out of time

There she goes with the wind in her hair
And a smile on her face
She doesn't know what I'd give just for one moment
To be in his place
Anyway
Take a look, there she goes
Take a look, there she goes

There she goes with the wind in her hair
And a smile on her face
She doesn't know what I'd give just for one moment
To be in his place

Anyway
Take a look, there she goes
Take a look, there she goes

I'm Ready Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

I got my red shoes on
Got my red gloves too
Made my decision
Gonna see this one through
Too late, I can't stop now
Open the door, I'll get through somehow

Deep in my darkest night
I always had a star that shone so bright
Star of hope, shine on me
I can take what comes my way
Whatever goes down, whatever they say
Star of hope shine on me

'Cos I'm ready
Oh I'm ready

Deep in my darkest night
I always had a star that shone so bright
Star of hope, shine on me
I can take what comes my way
Whatever goes down, whatever they say
Star of hope shine on me

'Cos I'm ready
Oh I'm ready

Black Dog Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

Black dog barking in the cold grey light
He pulls the chain and he pulls it tight
This ain't no lonesome wail that boy ain't faking
He bites the steel and he claws the ground
He pulls again and he spins around
His eyes are raging and his burning lungs are steaming

He wanna walk in the sun
Feel love like anyone
No one knows that black dog better than I
I said no one knows that black dog better than I

When I see his running I can see me
Teeth in the collar and he's tearing it free
Spit out the leather and the cold studs that kept you from singing
Run till you're bleeding run till you're hot
till the memory of all this you've long since forgot
Run till forever till the bells of your freedom are ringing

He wanna walk in the sun
Feel love like anyone
No one knows that black dog better than I
I said no one knows that black dog better than I

Soft Top, Hard Shoulder Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : God's Great Banana Skin

Soft top, hard shoulder
See me running down that line
I can't stop too much older now
Let it run in overtime
Run till it breaks up
Overheats and explodes
Pick up what's left of me
Leave the rest of it way down that road

Soft top, hard shoulder

Soft top, hard shoulder
Step in to the flame
Blue centre, so much colder
Won't be the same again

I'm gonna run till it breaks up
Overheats and explodes
Pick up what's left of me
Leave the rest of it way down that road
Soft top, hard shoulder

Espresso Logic Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

If you don't listen what the people say
The people gonna have to take their own way
You got to give the people what they need
And only then will they begin to see

There's a world that we don't know
There's a world we never see
Espresso

I don't need this trouble, I don't need the grief
I don't need to feel this pressure down on me
Every day there's something we don't really need
Stop, think, walk away and let it be
Stop, think, walk away and let it be
Espresso

There's a world that we don't know
There's a world we never see
Espresso

Red Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

Put your hand in the paintbox and choose
Which one says the most about you
I would have to pick the deepest shade
The saddest shade of blue
But red is colour I'd choose
Red is colour I'd choose

I set my soul long ago and far away
Oh it's written down so deep it can never fade away
Though so many years have come and gone
Through my life one thing has stayed
An eternal light that shines clean through the grey

Red is colour I'd choose
Deepest red on a sky of deepest blue
It don't matter now if I should win
If I should win or lose
'cos red is colour I'd choose
If I waste my time away waiting just for you
I don't care what others say
'cos baby I just love, love what you do

Red is colour I'd choose
Deepest red on a sky of deepest blue
It don't matter now if I should win
If I should win or lose
'cos red is colour I'd choose

Soup Of The Day Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

Well she thinks she's looking so cool
She thinks she's great but she's just a fool
What awful lack of class makes this kind behave this way
I look and only think of one thing to say
Soup, she's just soup
Soup of the day

She's thin around the waistline
Thin around the brain
You see this type so many times
Time and time again

How could they really think
They'd be treated in any other way
Everybody's looking and everybody say
Soup, she's just soup
Soup of the day

Well you'd think they'd know better
That behaving in this way
They think they're being clever
But I really have to say
You'd better think it over
You'll regret it one fine day
When the circus party's over
And you were just soup of the day
She's just soup
Soup of the day

Johnny Needs A Fast Car Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

Johnny needs a fast car
Johnny needs it bad
Johnny always do the best whatever johnny has
Johnny needs a fast one
Johnny needs it now
You got to give him something to let him show you how
Johnny needs a fast car

Johnny needs a fast car
Johnny needs a break
Johnny don't need good luck
'cos johnny never fakes
He'll always make it look good
You'll always see him smile
Give johnny a few inches and he'll give you back a mile

Johnny needs a fast car
Johnny needs a fast car

Tears upon the broken bones of luck that never went his way
Bless this one you'll know him by his smile

Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Everywhere I turn it's got a hold on me
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Everywhere I run it won't let me be
Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Can somebody somebody somebody help me please
Between the thunder and the driving rain
Could I ever be, be the same again
Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea

Holding on
Waiting for some good luck to come
Come my way, set me free

It's that old boy himself and he always knew
Sooner or later
If you don't say what's true you'll end in chains
And you'll always be
Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea

Julia Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

Eyes so bright, so big and wide
Make you feel so strange
Somewhere deep inside
It's the face of an angel
Soul of the devil may care

How I'd love to know
What goes on in there

She needs your love
She needs it every day
But speak of love
See her laugh and run away

Julia, which way will you go
Julia, I wanna know
Julia, only the moon and stars
Julia, know just where you are
Julia

See the dance that needs no alibi
Oh you don't need to dream
When you know you can fly

She needs your love
She needs it every day
But speak of love
See her laugh and run away

Julia, which way will you go
Julia, I wanna know
Julia, only the moon and stars
Julia, know just where you are
Julia

Summer Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

Once there was a summer love
Long ago and far away
The autumn whispers to the falling leaves
Summer love can't stay

This was their place, this was where
Just for one moment, without cares
Two lovers dreaming of how the world should be
Please bring back my summer love to me

Did you have to go, did I have to stay
Did you have to go, away
Now it's all gone, but who can forget
Summer love, sweet summer love

I see your shadow everywhere
I feel your smile though you're not there
A kiss for every star in the sky way above
You'll always be my one and only summer love

New Way Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

I go to work in a bubble
I got everything I need
I get so high on no trouble
It's a great feeling, being free

I say a prayer at thanksgiving
I bless the night and the day
I look up to the sky with a smile on my face
And I praise the lord of the new way

The sweetest sound I ever knew
Was the sound of reason falling
Like the summer rain
And the truth washed the pain away
New way

I don't watch tv anymore
Don't need to see it now we all know the score
And all the politicians know what they're there for
It's a new way
New way

Stop Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

Gone too far
Gone too long
Messed it up completely
Till everything is wrong
Stop, start over, start again

Too many pieces
Too much to chew
How can you ever win
When you're so scared to loose
You better stop, start over, start again
Stop, start over, start again

Walk away
See what it looks like from here
If you stay you will only drown
If a mass of fear

You need to sleep
You need a break
You got to find out before it's to late
Stop, start again
You better stop, start over, start again

She Closed Her Eyes Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Espresso Logic

She closed her eyes
And let the walls of her prison fall away
The walls that ached with a timeless wait
They had become her walls of this modern tv life
She closed her eyes
And let them fall away
And in her dreams she is standing by an ocean
She is gazing out to sea
She can remember with just a fleeting glimpse
That she was once free
So long ago now, so long it was as if it had never been
Was it a holiday
She thinks it could have been, ah yes, italy

And he closes his eyes
And he is gone far away
Gone from all the confusion
Gone from all the pain
He can easily see what a pointless waste
His modern life has become
Chasing the gravy grain
Chasing the dollar
Chasing the clock
Chasing his male friends
Chasing the boss
Chasing as it was everything
It was nothing

Only the sound of his own breathing was all he had
At the end of the day
And reasons to wonder, reasons to cry
Too late for this selfish sinner who never asked why

Square Peg, Round Hole Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA

He's a square peg in a round hole
Misfit in a slick world
Don't play the game
Don't do what he's told
He's a square peg in a round hole

Square peg don't care
The bright lights he's not there
Catch the shadows see him slip away
Square peg that's what they say
Square peg, Suare peg

Square peg, you have got to be strong
Square peg, he's got his own song
Square peg, I'll see you around
Square peg, face down

Square peg, round hole

I've been everywhere, looking for an answer
I've been in and out, of every place in town
I've been checking out, looking for a reason
I just can't seem to work it out, which every way I choose
Oh I've been missing you
I'm missing you

I miss your kiss
I miss your touch
Can't get used to it baby
I miss you so much
I'm missing you

Shadows Of The Big Man Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

Oh you've been so long
In the shadows of the big man
How long can you take it
How far can you go
Don't you know how strong
In the shadows of the big man
While he smiles in the sunlight
You can die in the cold

Spend your life, In the shadows of the big man
Sell your wife and children, if it made him smile
How long can you take it, or do you really need it!
Oh standing in the shadws, the shadows of the big man
And you'd love all the world to see
How you break your chains and set yourself free
And all you got to do is walk away
Walk away from the shadows of the big man

Where Do We Go From Here? Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

She's 24, she's 25
She doesn't know what's true or lies
Where does she go?
Where does she go from here?

He's 21, he's 22
TV crap is all he knew
Where does he go?
Where does he go from here?

She goes to shool
She stays at home
Wherever she goes, she feels so alone
Where does she go?
Where does she go from here?

They're 34, they're 45
They're so obsessed with the car they drive
Where do they go she says
Where do we go from here?

Love is a stranger, with a silicon smile
As you choke on your envy, down the magazine mile
You must look, but don't touch
You must but, but don't feel
One day you will find out
None of it's real

Where do we go, where do we go from here?

Since I Found You Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

There's a smile on the faces I see
Since I found you
There's a laugh in the eye, where a tear used to be
Since I found you
There's a sound of a Memphis section playing on my radio
And it sings of the reasons why I love you so
Since I found you

There's a groove that's so smooth
I can hardly tell who's in the studio
And the girls on the street
Sing out of tune so sweet
I just have to go, it's all i need to know
Since I found you, I ain't never going to give you up
Since I found you, you keep me looking up
You keep me looking up
You keep me looking up
Turn it up

Thinking Of You Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

Somewhere in this crazy night
With all this noise, and all this light
I'm out upon the crowded street
I play the game and I keep the beat
But I'm thinking of you

And I remember the summer days
Your strength and yet your gentle ways
Now I'm back on the crowded street
Through the darker days I keep the beat

But I'm thinking of you

Through all the grey, I see skies of blue
I close my eyes cause I'm thinking of you

And I pray to god, that what we had,
We will have again someday
So I telephoned to tell you what
I'd hoped you'd like to hear me say

I'm thinking of you

As Long As I Have Your Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

The word you send today
From somewhere far away
Cut in deep to the bone
Though I am not with you now
I feel you close somehow
Too many days, so far from home
And I send my dream to you
And I will go on
As long as I have your love

I see your candle burn,
You wait for my return
I feel your shadow in the night
The question still remains, oh love its still the same
Oh I'll get by,
Don't you know I'll be alright
As long as I have your love

Anyone Quite Like You Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

Ten Thousand princes
I've seen them all
I've seen them come
And I see them fall
I've watched them win
I've watched them loose
Since you've been around
No-one gets to choose
Because when the game begins
And the time is now
When there is no more talking
Only here and now
There is only here and now
I ain't seen anything qute like you
Ain't been anyone quite like you

Ten thousand princes
All backs against the wall
Then Thousand losers
When the winner comes to call
How they scream in frustration
Then thousand reasons why
The rhetoric is endless
I see the laughter in your eyes
Because when the game begins
And the time is now
When there is no more talking
Only here and now
Only here and now
I ain't seen anything qute like you
Ain't been anyone quite like you

Sweet Summer Day Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

I want to see the blue sky
I want to feel the breeze
I want to hear the summer wind
Singing in the trees
I want to touch forever
And drift into its soul
Put my troubles in my right hand
Hold them up
And let them go!

Sweet summer day
Talking about a sweet summer day
Take your troubles and let them fly away
I'm talking about a sweet summer day

So much time is wasted, pulling the line
For sure you are running faster
But you're only running blind
I want to touch forever
I want to really know
Put my troubles in my right hand
Hold them up and let them go

Sweet summer day
I'm talking about a sweet summer day
Take your troubles and let them drift away
Talking about a sweet summer day

Stick By You Lyrics

Album : The Blue Cafe

I'm gonna stick by you, everyday
I won't let you down now
No matter what they say
I won't let them get to you, no way
I'll stick by you

Now I know
No matter what tomorrow brings
I won't let you go
I won't let them get to you, oh no

I'll stick by you
And when the laughter seems to fade away
And Mr Sun becomes a rainy day
Oh I don't matter cause you'll know anyway
I won't let you down
I'm gonna stick by you
I'll stick by you

Going to stick by you, now I know
No matter what tomorrow brings
I won't let them get to you, no
I'll stick by you, I'll stick by you
I'll stick by you, I'll stick by you

I'm Still Holding On Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

How many times
Have I been here before?
Like a worn away piece of the night
Waiting for the dawn

Daylight breaks
And the dream is gone
Leaving me to stay
But I'm still holding on
Yeah I'll keep holding on

I used to think I knew
Just exactly what I took
You move in, fast and hard
And you make your own luck

Daylight breaks
And the dream is gone
Leaving me to stay
But I'm still holding on

I see it better now
Smell the tears upon this tracks
It's a long long way before it's over
And what you give out
Is what you get back
The easy way out
It will bite you hard someday
You see me smile and learn
I find a better way

I'm still holding on

The Blue Cafe Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Blue Cafe

My world is miles of endless roads
That leaves a trail of broken dreams
Where have you been
I hear you say?
I will meet you at the Blue Cafe
Because, this is where the one who knows
Meets the one who does not care
The cards of fate
The older shows
To the younger one, who dares to take
The chance of no return

Where have you been?
Where are you going to?
I want to know what is new
I want to go with you
What have you seen?
What do you know that is new?
Where are you going to?
Because I want to go with you

So meet me down at the Blue Cafe

The cost is great, the price is high
Take all you know, and say goodbye
Your innocence, inexperience
Mean nothing now

Because, this is where the one who knows
Meets the one that does not care
Where have you been?
I hear you say
I'll meet you at the Blue Cafe

So meet me at the Blue Cafe

Can't Get Through Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

Radio speaker - radio bleep
Put it on hard disc -
See it on your pc
Everybody moving - cos
their so afraid of losing
You gotta pull the straps
Till it can't fight back

Say you gotta pull straps
Till it can't fight back
Press it down, press it down

What's going on,
Oh what's going on
There was a time,
When all I could see
was a sun in the sky
There was a place I knew where we
We used to run, run with
the wind in our faces

I look to the left, I look to the right
Can't get through
Press it down, I can't get through
Look to the left, I look to the right
I can't get through

I can't get through
I can't get through

Radio play, radio scream
Coming up through
All the crap on my windscreen
I can't get through
I can't go back
Laugh (too scared)
I might have a heart attack
I say I might have a heart attack

I can't get through
I can't get through

E Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

E is for the comfort,
You give to me
E is for the peace, I feel inside
E is for the good times
That go against the bad times
E is for the world you gave us
And left us here behind

They say
Tell me what's so wrong with E
That's what I hear them say
Tell me what's so wrong with E
That's what I hear them say
Let's talk about it

E is for the reason
To live through urban grey
E is for the warm glow,
That takes the fear away

Show us what is better
Why don't you stand inside
these shoes
Oh live with me each Monday...
Let's see what you would do...

Which world do you live in?
Which world did you choose?
Hiding the tears, that's all
No win
No lose

They say
Tell me what's so wrong with E
That's what I hear them say
Tell me what's so wrong with E
That's what I hear them say
Let's talk about it

Last Open Road Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

How fast can I run?
How far can I go?
These are the questions,
The young want to know
I met her in Brooklyn,
She was coming from a place
I said "where are you going to"?
She said "where have you been"?

'Cos I'm trapped in here,
Set me free
I know your world let me see
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road

I know there is so much past
this place
I see it smile on your jagged,
ragged face
Something tells me,
something strong
There's a world I've heard of,
So before it's gone
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road

Coming Off The Ropes Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

I'm coming off the ropes
(he's going down)
He thinks I'm beat
I'm coming off the ropes yea
This ain't no retreat
He thinks I'm going down
For sure my head is spinning round
When I straighten up
But I'm going to knock him off his feet!
(Wow suckerpunch!)

I'm coming off the ropes
(he's going down)
Yes I'm coming off the ropes

I'm coming off the ropes
He made me angry now
I only need to straighten up
I'm going to show him how
I can hear someone count to ten
Seems like a lifetime,
But I'll tell you when
I know I'm safe down here
So till then, must have been
a lucky swing
Two years ago,
I would have not let him in

I'm coming off the ropes
(he's going down)

Evil No. 2 Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

They call me love
They call me dear
They kiss off and leave me
For their own career
I got a satellite dish, I'm all alone
With my little goldfish
And eminem, em on my headphones
You heard that yet? You will!

Selfish pigs put the blame on me
So hacked off what I came to be
I'm off the tracks
Now I'm all at sea
They like jogging more than they like me

I'm evil
Evil no.2

Then need to have something,
Becomes the seed to have anything
The lonely tears have dried up
And the brain cells start to fry
My heart cries out for new things
Turns to anything will do things
My left sides like a train crash
Form all the things I tried

I was so scared
I was lonely
I got mixed up
Now I'm only

I'm evil
Evil no.2

Mummy and daddy's on prozac
Said they're happy but
They won't be back
I hope they have a heart attack
'Cos of what they done to me

They left me for a wine bar
They left me for the wrong car
I dunno how I got this far

I'm evil
Evil no.2

Eminem ain't so far away from this

Mummy got a boyfriend
Daddy got a girlfriend
Gotta go away at weekends
I tell you what I'll do
Take every pill that I see
You can do what you want to me
I'm only trying to break free
From the evil that you do

I'm evil
Evil no.2

Keep On Dancing Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

I got a friend who loves the music
He got a red hot groove
But he don't use it
I get so afraid, he's gonna lose it
If you gotta gift - man, don't abuse it

Keep on dancing

The experts say they really care
They don't have a clue what's out there
The teachers tell the children not to swear
And the drunken lawyes
Leaves the kid
To pop something in
To kill the fear... it's not fair

Keep on dancing

I'm a frightened Dad, worried sick
Hear what I say?
I could put something in here
You know what rhymes with it
The whole world seems to end
In c.k.e.d
You ain't fooling me anyway

Keep on dancing

Are you ready here comes
Steve Gadd

Keep on dancing

See em run for the books, cos
They just don't get it
They throw it at me
But I've already read it
Before they speak,
Some-one already said it

We can't be friends
Cos Karl Marx don't rhyme
With Mercedez-Benz
I need credit
You can shove it
You know why?
'Cos I love it!

Keep on dancing

Marvin Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

Oh Marvin,
Seems so long
But I still remember you
I would have given everything
If I could have talked to you
For just one small moment
In the quiet of the day
You took my pain away

Oh Marvin
The one who wanted,
The one that could not stay
With a flash of illusion
Oh the big one that got away
Just one small moment
In the quiet of the day
You took my pain away

Oh Marvin
Oh Marvin

Oh how we miss you
Oh how we wish somehow
I could hold onto your wings
And fly away
Because the pain you knew
Was the pain I knew too
Misunderstood like the
thorn of a rose
Before the summer came,
Your beauty washed away
Like pretty petals in the wind and rain

Firefly Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

Go to that secret place
Inside your soul
Go to its deepest place
Only you and I know
Can you see her?
There she is still shining bright
When the sun goes down
See her crimson glow through
the darkest of nights
She smiles and says
Everything is alright
There will never be goodbye
While we still see the firefly

The firefly
She smiles and says
Everything is alright
There will never be goodbye
While we still see the firefly

There will never be goodbye
While we still see the firefly

I'm In My Car Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

I'm in my car
I got my telephones and radio
This is my home
I have learnt to love and live
The only way I know
And I don't want to change a thing
This is my world you are sitting in
I got a fax so I press send
Send a message to my DJ
A message to my DJ
'Cos he's my best friend
I'm in my car

And I am happy here
Even though the fools will never know
I got peace in here
My private world and endless
Stop and go

And I don't want to change a thing
This is my world you are sitting in
I got a fax so I press send
Send a message to my DJ
A message to my DJ
'Cos he's my best friend

I'm in my car

Safe from my boss
Safe from all the gumbos
That I hate so much
Its not G.T.
Its not all about you think
That you may see
Oh it's not about what you think
You see
I'm safe from my family. ..
I'm safe
I'm safe

I'm in my car

I'm happy here

I'm in my car

New Times Square Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

I'll see you round about midnight
You know I won't be late
Let's dive into this crap house
And truth hell have to wait

The truth of what has gone before
Lies bleeding on the floor
The only truth remaining still
Is that truth don't matter anymore

So meet me round about midnight
I won't let you down I swear
We'll hang on to each other
Down at the new Times Square

It seems that we can't run from this
No matter how we try
There's nothing here worth keeping
So let's kiss it all goodbye

Tell me what's worth keeping anyway
It doesn't seem to matter
What we do or what we say
Everything we had
They have now taken it all away
The truth don't matter anymore

The Way You Look Tonight Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : The Road To Hell Part 2

A sinner I may be
But I've just got to try
My luck with you
Secret smile upon your face
So don't look down
Don't hide your grace
Let me find you

Cos I can't get over the way
You look tonite
Blow me away
The way you look tonite
Tell me to go away
It's allright
I just wanted to say
The way you look tonite
The way you look tonite...

King Of The Beach Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

Let your fighting scars heal in the sun
of a bright windy day
Let your cold blades sleep in the sand
till it's rusted away

Washed each night in the waves
while you sleep away each memory
And you wake to find yourself
a new king to be

Away from the dark
moving into the light
King of the shadows
gives up on the fight

He kicks of them shoes
throws them away
There's nobody here now
except this salty blue day

Out of sight
Out of reach
He's king of the beach

Whatever I was
well I'm not that now
I tell you because
it may help you somehow

So kick of them shoes
and throw them away
Cause there's nobody here now
except this salty blue day

All Summer Long Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

All summer long we were happy we were one
We didn't think of an ending to our play
All summer long nights of wine, days of song
It couldn't last, our ageing sun had to go
I will always remember you

Watching the waves in the wind
The beach dogs hiding from the rain
Suddenly my colours have turned to grey
Will I ever see your face again

And all winter long I will walk my lonely road
Waiting for you and your return
I will always remember you

Sail Away Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

Walk a cold thin line
in the morning
Hold the fear inside
that greets you with the day

I can't go with you now
I can only watch you now
As you sail away
Sail away

I'm going to miss you now
So much more then I realised
There's a heavy stone of empty
where you once lay

I can't go with you now
I can only watch you now
Watch you
As you sail away

Sail away
I know you need your freedom
Sail away
Cause without it you can't survive
Be on your way
disappear into the distance
I smile and say
Sail away

I can't go with you now
I can only watch you now
Watch you
As you sail away

Still Beautiful Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

I see a million torn up moments
of the rarest happiness
Each one a dancing snowflake
A piece of memory

It's the ghost of days gone by
Lay them tight across this old town
In the silence of your smiling face
You move to me

And you are still beautiful
You are still beautiful
In this cold white night
Still shining bright
Still beautiful

Regrets the cold wind that I know
and it will not let me be
and hopes your smiling face
can still can set me free

And you are still beautiful
You are still beautiful
In this cold white night
Still shining bright
Still beautiful

The Bones Of Angels Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

Long shadows
Bright light
That falls to the front
From a darkness behind
There is no end
To this mountain top
Inside these stones
Only peace will we find

Inside out
We're all part of the stone
That makes up the mountain
And harbours the bones
The bones of angels
That showed us the way
You can feel them at night
While they sleep through the day

The bones of angels
The bones of angels

Together we will be
Forever we will see
I see you
And I see me
And the bones of angels

Guitar Street Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

There's a crazy sense of duty
As he licks between his fingers
Wipes the ketchup from his face and hands
There's a strong determination
That his teachers never witnessed
Never close enough to understand
He's like a bull just bred for fighting
He don't deliver nothing
Outside the only thing that he knows

School report just says he's lazy
His brother says he's crazy
But take a look 'cos there he goes

Through the avenues of fashion
To the palaces of dreams
All the way down Guitar Street

To some guitars are hot-rods
All along the quest for macho
To others a would-be ticket out of town
For Joe a six-string sten gun
In the 'Panto-revolution'
And Stevie's all just strictly sound
He's like a bull just bred for fighting
He don't deliver nothing
Outside the only thing that he knows

School report just says he's lazy
His brother says he's crazy
But anyway take a look 'cos there he goes
Through the avenues of fashion
To the palaces of dreams
All the way down Guitar Street

Who Do You Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

How does it feel
now that you know
What makes it work
how far it can go
Your innocent dream
didn't know how to play
the game that was needed
and now I hear it say

Who do you love
Who do you really love
What are you thinking of
at the end of the day
What do you want
What do you really want

There's no question you are
and somehow save the day
and all those who don't really know
See a bright sunny day
but the glory that shone
like sweet summer rain
It rolls off you and dissapates
Just as fast as it came

The Memory Of A Good Friend Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

I love the sun
I love the sea
I'd like to think that you
were here with me

But people are seasons
and seasons change
I'd like to think that you
are still the same

Sometimes you made me happy
Sometimes you made me cry
But the memory of a good friend
never dies

Between the lines
of an aging face
something special that you can't replace

But people are seasons
and seasons change
I'd like to think that you
are still the same

Sometimes you made me happy
Sometimes you made me cry
But the memory of a good friend
never dies

And I see you standing
by the harbour wall
And I see you waving
from the aeroplane
Two hearts together
laughing in the rain

Sandwriting Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

Sandwriting
Leave your name and
Let the wind
And high tide
Take it away
Each white gold grain
That made up your name

Take it away

Sandwriting
Write your lover's monogram
Upon the cool damp
White gold grain
say this is who I am
Yes this is all you are my friend
Some shapes upon the sand
Of white gold grain
Washed and blown away
With the memory of your name

Take it away

Go tell the story
To the wind and sea
What ever became of you and me
Each letter of love
That had its golden day
A love song
Without goodbye

Take it away

Sandwriting

Tamatave Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

Je veux sentir le sable
Entre mes doigts de pieds
Tamatave ma petite rouquine
Elle la sait

Long grass dancing in the day
Blue sky palm trees gently sway
I come from a land down in sun
Sit on the beach and watch the waves run

I need the sand between my toes
Tamatave my red hair girl she knows

Tamatave je t'entends m'appeler
Tamatave je t'entends m'appeler
Tommasina I hear you calling me
Tamatave je t'entends m'appeler

I feel so strange on city streets
I got these big shoes on my feet
I come from a land down in sun
Sit on the beach and watch the waves run

Tamatave je ton ton mapelay
Tamatave je ton ton mapelay
Tommasina I hear you calling me
Tamatave je ton ton mapelay

God Gave Me An Angel Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

I was never born with the face of a movie star
I was never blessed with an easy load along the way
I have taken the wrong turning
So many times I can't remember
But one thing I have for sure
I can always smile and say

God gave me an angel with a smiling face
God gave me an angel this I know
My churches are all empty and I'm guilty every day
But god gave me an angel anyway

Talk of being good and what became of me
Do I hide my head in shame and turn away
I have taken the wrong turning
So many times I can't remember
But one thing I have for sure
I can always smile and say

But God gave me an angel with a smiling face
God gave me an angel this I know
My churches are all empty and I'm guilty every day
But god gave me an angel anyway

Waiting For A Blue Sky Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

He sits upon the empty sand
and gazes up to the endless grey
The weathered face
and battered hands
Protest the soul
that carried them so far this way

The beaten skin
is turning to a wrinkled smile
And his eyes light up
and give his soul away

He said, I'm waiting for a blue sky
I am waiting for a bright day
I'll be there thru the wind and rain
Don't care what anybody says

I'm waiting for a morning bright
that fills the day with all its clean bright light
I'm waiting for a blue sky

I'm waiting for a blue sky
I'm waiting for a bright day
I'll be there thru the wind and rain
Don't care what anyone else says

I'm waiting for a morning bright
that fills the day with all its clean bright light
I'm waiting for a blue sky

Mississippi Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : King Of The Beach

Nashville sky, in the morning sun
Somewhere up north, a new life begun
He was drawn to the twister, with a Memphis sound
Kissed by an Angel, of a music town.

Jump a train from Chicago, trace it back
With the neck of a bottle, and the groove of the tracks
Spend your life running, that Angels sweet sound
Chasing the ghosts, of a faraway town.

Oh Mississippi, running through my veins
Oh Mississippi, never the same again.

Changing Times Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing Down The Stony Road

Changing times, changing rules
Make a wise man look a fool
Gone before no longer here
Look out for these signs of these
Changing rules
Better look out

You better look out
Look out for these changing times
Can't stop those changing times
Changing times
Cold hard rain
Everything's a changing
Nothin's going to be the same

You'd better look out
'Cos you can't stop these changing times
Nothin's going ever to be the same
You'd better look out
Look out for these changing times

Well now come on easy rider
Give me something
For my pain
Well now come on easy rider
Though I know you're not to blame

The dogs are out to get me

Turn this screaming fire

Pull this pain

Don't think that I can take it
This twisting pain
I've come to know
Easy rider
Help me

Stony Road Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing Down The Stony Road

This is the story
Oh this is the way
Gospel of reason
When the pain came to stay
The life of a loser
Who wins with a smile
The sinners redemption
In the tears of a child

Me & Katie
We go dancing down the stony road
See her laughing through the pain
Of such a heavy load
Me & Katie
We go dancing down the stony road

You're looking for sugar
To kill the grey
You're looking for the laughter
To take the pain away
God don't give nothing
No you got to steal your own smile
Learning to find it,
In the tears of the child

And me & Katie
We go dancing down the stony road
See her laughing through the pain
Of such a heavy load

Me & Katie
We go dancing down the stony road
Let's go dancing, let's go dancing
Dancing down that stony road

Dancing The Blues Away Lyrics

Beat up soul
Looking to find a smile
Ain't nobody here to give you the reason why
I need the wings of an angel
Need to find me a way to fly

Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance 'til my blues can't stay
Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away

There is something worth knowing
Written behind those eyes
Well I've got tears by the truckload
Let's laugh 'til they all run dry
Let's steal the wings from those angels
And kiss what we know goodbye

Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance 'til my blues can't stay
Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away

Burning Feet Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Dancing Down The Stony Road

No standing with these burning feet
I got to kill the the fire
Got to kill the heat
I see a road and a river
I gotta go
'cos there's fire in my shoes
And you're moving too slow
For these burning feet

I got to move
Burning feet
Need a cool groove
Burning feet
Win or lose
Looking to kill the heat
Oh these burning shoes

One day they'll find me in pieces,
By the side of the track
Smoke trail behind me,
Flames from my back
This is what made me,
Yeah how I was made
Forever, in the heat
And never in the shade
Of these burning feet

Burning feet
I got to move
Burning feet
Need a cool groove
Burning feet
Win or lose
Looking to kill the heat
Oh these burning shoes
