One More River Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Pyramid

Don't look back 'cause there's one more river.
Don't turn your back, you got one more river to cross.
No more fightin', no more dyin',
No more cheatin', no more lyin'.

Don't look back 'cause there's one more river.
Don't turn your back, you got one more river to cross.
Don't start askin' the rhyme or reason,
Don't hold back, it's the time of the season.

One more mile and one more road...
One last bridge and one less load...
One
More
River...

Don't look back you got one more river!
Don't turn your back, you got one more river to cross...
Don't start askin' the rhyme or reason,
Don't hold back, it's the time of the season!

One more mile and one more road...
One last bridge and one less load...
One more river.
One more river!

Can't Take It With You Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Pyramid

Well, I sympathize completely,
But there's nothing I can do.
I am just a humble servant
With a message here for you.
Well I know you have good reasons
And there's things you've got to do,
But the boatman won't be waiting
And he's leaving here with you.
And you can't take it with you,
No matter what you do.
No, you can't take it with you,
Not the place you're going to...

(One more mile, one more road, one last bridge, one less load.)

Well I sympathize completely,
But there's nothing I can do.
I am just obeying orders,
I'm a simple soul like you.
Well you really are persuasive,
But I've heard it all before
And the boatman's getting restless
As he stands upon the shore...
And you can't take it with you,
No matter what you do.
No, you can't take it with you,
Not the place you're going to...

Can't take it with you...
Can't take it with you...
Can't take it with you...
Can't take it with you...

Pyromania Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Pyramid

There are pyramids in my head!
There's one underneath my bed!
And my lady's getting cranky.
Every possible location
Has a simple explanation
And it isn't hanky-panky.

I have read, somewhere in a book,
They improve all your food and your wine.
It's said that everything you grow in your garden will pretty fine,
Instead, all I ever get is a pain in the neck and a
Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap yap!

I've consulted all the sages,
I could find in the yellow pages,
But there aren't many of them...
And the mayan panoramas
On my pyramid pajamas
Haven't helped my little problem.

I've been told someone in the know
Can be sure that his luck is as good as gold,
Money in the bank and you don't even pay for it if you fold
A dollar in the shape of the pyramid that's printed on the back.

It's no lie.
You can keep the edge of a razor as sharp as an eagle's eye.
You can grow a hedge that is vertically straight, over ten feet high.
All you really need is a pyramid and just a little luck.

I have read, somewhere in a book,
They improve all your food and wine
And I've been told,
Someone in the know
Can be sure of his good luck and it's no lie.
All you really need is a little bit of pyramidic
Help!

Shadow Of A Lonely Man Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Pyramid

Look at me now, a shadow of the man I used to be...
Look through my eyes and through the years of loneliness you'll see...
To the times in my life when I could not bear to lose
A simple game.
And the least of it all was the fortune and the fame...
But the dream seemed to end just as soon as it had begun...
Was I to know?
For the last thing of all that was on my mind
Was the close at the end of the show.
The shadow of a lonely man feels nobody else...

In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
I can see myself...

(Looking out of nowhere...Looking out of nowhere...)

But the sound of the crowds when they come to see me now,
Is not the same.
And the jest of it all is I can't recall my name.
But I cling to a hope till I can't hold on anymore...anymore...
And for all the acclaim, I am all alone!
And I see as I look through the door,

The shadow of a lonely man...There's nobody else...
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
I can see myself!

...Look at me now, a shadow of the man I used to be....

You Lie Down With Dogs Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

You're such a cool woman but I love you
Such a cruel woman but I love you
Open up your eyes and realise
You're such a fool woman but I love you
But give me all you've got to give
Cause it sure feels good to me

I'm not your only man I'm just a lover
Not your only man just another
Open up your eyes and realise
I'm gonna take what I can like any other
I'll say any damn thing that you want me to
Cause it don't mean a thing to me

Well
You lie down with dogs, you fall in with thieves
You're gonna catch something but you do as you please
You're scartchin' an itch that nothing can ease
You lie down with dogs you get up with fleas

Get out and find yourself another lover
Why don't you find yourself another lover
Open up your eyes and realise
You don't mean nothing to me I'm not your mother
You gave me all that you had to give
But there's a whole lotta fish in the sea

Well
You lie down with dogs, you fall in with thieves
You're gonna catch something but you do as you please
You're scartchin' an itch that nothing can ease
You lie down with dogs you get up with fleas

I'd Rather Be A Man Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

You don't fool me with your tinted eyes and make up
The firebird hides in shadow when you wake up
Your golden hair is black
Your jeans are tight but your hide is slack
Try it on the company but you don't fool me

Well I'd rather be a man than play my role like you do
I'd rather be a man than sin my soul like you do
I'd rather be a man than slave the way that you do
I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

You don't fool me with your easy lies and fables
You won't see me in ten buck furs and sables
You sparkle like a snake
The wine is real but the glass is fake
Blame it on the apple tree but you don't fool me

Well I'd rather be a man than play my role like you do
I'd rather be a man than sin my soul like you do
I'd rather be a man than slave the way that you do
I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

Your golden hair is black
Your jeans are tight but your hide is slack
Try it on the company but you don't fool me

Well I'd rather be a man than play my role like you do
I'd rather be a man than sin my soul like you do
I'd rather be a man than slave the way that you do
I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you do

I'd rather be a man cause a man don't crawl like you

I'd rather be a man cause I wouldn't wanna be like you

You Won't Be There Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

Show me a promised land and I will go anywhere
And if you ask me to take my time I'll wait for years
I'll hold on though the whole world tells me I'm wrong
Someday, someday
But it seems so long

Ask me to prove my love and I will do anything
So if they turn off the light of the sun why should I care
I'll hold on though the whole world tells me I'm wrong
Then in the morning as you leave me
You touch my hand to show how much you care
But just when I need you
You won't be there

I'll hold on but I need a shoulder to lean on
Why if you love me must you leave me
Why are you going anywhere
Why must our love be something in the air
Cause just when I need you
You won't be there
You won't be there

Winding Me Up Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

Well it was only a game she was mine for the asking
And I'd figured the whole thing out
When she told me her name it was more that a feeling
There wasn't any doubt

Well it felt so good it was too hard to break it
Too much for me to explain
But in a matter of time I'm gonna be myself again

You've been
Winding me up too long
I'm over my head is it day or night
Cause woman you ain't so strong
But you caught me by surprise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size
Saw through my disguise

Well it was only a game she was only a number
But I figured it out all wrong
Every time that I said I'll move on tomorrow
I hung around too long
Well it felt so good it was too hard to break it
Too much before me to face
Now I got nowhere to run she knows my every hidin' place

You've been
Winding me up too long
I'm over my head is it day or night
Cause woman you ain't so strong
But you caught me by surprise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size
Saw through my disguise

Winding me up too long
I'm over my head is it day or night
Cause woman you ain't so strong
But you caught me by surprise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size
Beat me to the prize
Hurt me with your lies
Saw through my disguise
Burned me with your eyes
Cut me down to size
Saw through my disguise

Damned If I Do Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

I ain't got a heart of stone
I'm hurtin' more than I've ever kown
If you mean the things you said
I'm gonna wind up outa my head
Can't sleep alone at night
I just can't seem to get it right
Damned if I do
I'm damned if I don't but love you

I don't wanna tie you down
Don't need a reason to have you around
But each time you walk away
Don't be surprised if I ask you to stay
Can't sleep alone at night
I just can't seem to get it right
Damned if I do
I'm damned if I don't but love you
I said I'm damned if I do
I'm damned if I don't cause love you

I ain't got a heart of stone
You haven't left me a mind of my own
But it's such a hold on me
I don't think I could ever be free
How can I survive
I'm fighting to keep myself alive
I'm damned if I do
Damned if I don't but love you
Can't seem to see the light
I've done everything but I can't get it right
Damned if I do
Damned if I don't but love you

Don't Hold Back Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

Some are born to lose their heads
And some are born to use them
And some will never know their ends
And some are born to choose them

Don't let your fantasies be blinded by the light
You don't have to save your wildest dreams for the night

Don't hold back don't hold back don't hold back reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out

Some you wind and some you lose
And some will bring you sorrow
Some are born to lead the rest
And some are born to follow
Don't rely on miracles to open any door
And don't your let a shadow be your guide anymore

Don't hold back don't hold back don't hold back reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out

Ride the wave of destiny
Rise above the crest
And believe everything that happens to you happens for the best
Don't allow the world of men
To turn your head no more
Cause if you can't let yourself go
What are you saving yourself for?

Don't hold back don't hold back don't hold back reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out

Don't you let your fantasies be blinded by the light
For you don't have to save your wildest deams for the night

Don't hold back don't hold back don't hold back reach out
Touch the sky with your mind's eye, don't be afraid to reach out

If I Could Change Your Mind Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eve

I prefer to spend my time is solitary ways
Keeping myself to myselff
Can't pretend that it's been easy since you went away
Living with somebody else

If you should change your mind
If you would turn around and look behind
If you could see me the way I used to be
At the rist of bringing back the sorrow and despair
I would do it all again
Holding on to memories and pretending not to care
Knowing that the show was soon to end
If only I could change your mind
If only you would change
If I had the chance I'd do it all again
I would do it all again

I remember windy shores on melancholy days
Drifting along with the tide
And the joy of simple things and ordinary ways
Taking is all in my stride

If you should change your mind
If I could let you see what lies behind
If you could need me the way it used to be
Even for a moment of the happy times we shared
Living in my dreams since then
At the risk of losing only castles in the air
Come with me and we can try again
Oh, if I could change your mind

Can't pretend it's not been lonely since you went away
Oh, if only I could change your mind

May Be A Price To Pay Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : The Turn Of A Friendly Card

Something's wrong in this House today
While the Master was riding the Servants decided to play
Something's wrong in this House today
Something's been going on there may be a price to pay.

There's evil brewing, getting out of control
And I'm helpless I can't put it right
Something unrighteous is possessing my soul
And it's cold in the heat of the night

Something's wrong in this House today
While the Sorcerer slept the Apprentice decided to play

While the Master was hiding the Servants decided to play
Might be too much Sun or too much of something in the Air
Whatever's happening nobody else is aware

There's evil brewing, getting out of control
And I'm helpless I can't put it right
Something unrighteous is possessing my soul
And it's cold in the heat of the night

Something's wrong in this House today
Something's been going on there may be a price to pay.

Games People Play Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : The Turn Of A Friendly Card

Where do we go from here now that all other children are growin' up
And how do we spend our lives if there's no-one to lend us a hand

I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stay
Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away

Games people play, You take it or you leave it
Things that they say, Honor Brite
If I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Where do we go from here now that all of the children have grown up
And how do we spend our time knowin' nobody gives us a damn

I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stay
Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away

Games people play, You take it or leave it
Things that they say, Just don't make it right
If I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Games people play, You take it or you leave it
Things that they say, Honor Brite
If I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Games people play, You take it or leave it
Things that they say, Just don't make it right
If I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Time Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : The Turn Of A Friendly Card

Time, flowing like a river
Time, beckoning me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river
To the sea

Goodbye my love, Maybe for forever
Goodbye my love, The tide waits for me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea

Till it's gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore

Goodbye my friends, Maybe forever
Goodbye my friends, The stars wait for me
Who knows where we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea

Till it's gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore

I Don't Wanna Go Home Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : The Turn Of A Friendly Card

Go back home you damn fool
Surely you know you can't win
You should never have come near this place
You should have stayed on the outside, Lookin' in

It's too late to turn back
Nobody asked you to try
But they blinded you with diamonds
And all the money that money can buy

And I'm so afraid of being on my own
But I don't wanna go home

You can't win you damn fool
You drank all the wine from the cup
And your painted lady's gone now
And you're way back on the downside, Lookin' up

You can't catch the monkey on your back
Nobody asked you to try
But for every heart they held a spade
And you lost more than money can buy

And I'm so afraid of being on my own
But I don't wanna go home

I'm like a washed up rag
Tattered and torn
I wish I'd never been born

And I'm so afraid of being on my own
But I don't wanna go home

I'm like a down and out just blowin' my horn
Oh I don't wanna go home

I'm like a washed up rag
Tattered and torn
I wish I'd never been born

The Turn Of A Friendly Card Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : The Turn Of A Friendly Card

There are unsmiling faces and bright plastic chains
And a wheel in perpetual motion
And they follow the races and pay out the gains
With no show of an outward emotion

And they think it will make their lives easier
For God knows up till now it's been hard
But the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

There's a sign in the desert that lies to the west
Where you can't tell the night from the sunrise
And not all the king's horses and all the king's men
Have prevented the fall of the unwise

And they think it will make their lives easier
For God knows up till now it's been hard
But the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

But a pilgrim must follow in search of a shrine
As he enters inside the cathedral...

Nothing Left To Lose Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : The Turn Of A Friendly Card

Nothing's good the news is bad
The heat goes on and it drives you mad
Scornful thoughts that fly your way
You should turn away 'cause there's nothing more to say

You gave the best you had to give
You only have one life to live
You fought so hard you were a slave
After all you gave there was nothing left to save

You've got nothing left to lose (you've got nothing left to lose)
No you've got nothing left to lose (who'd wanna be standing in your shoes)

You read the book you turn the page
You change your life in a thousand ways
The dawn of reason lights your eyes
With the key you realise
To the kingdom of the wise

You've got nothing left to lose (you've got nothing left to lose)
No you've got nothing left to lose (who'd wanna be standing in your shoes)

Nothing ventured nothing gained
No more lingering doubt remained
Nothing sacred or profane
Everything to gain
Cause you've nothing left

But the doorway before them is barred
And the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

Eye In The Sky Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eye In The Sky

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I ain't gonna give any more
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
'Cause part of me knows what you're thinking...
Don't say words you're gonna regret
Don't let the fire rush to your head
I've heard the accusaation before
And I ain't gonna take any more
Believe me
The sun in your eyes
Made some of the lies worth believing

[CHORUS]
I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
And I don't need to see any more
To know that I can read your mind, I can read your mind

Don't leave false illusions behind
Don't cry 'cause I ain't changing my mind
So find another fool like before
'Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing
Some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving

[CHORUS]

Children Of The Moon Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eye In The Sky

Pay no attention to the writing on the wall
The words seem empty 'cause there's nothing there at all
We let the wise men beat the drums too soon
We were just children of the moon
None to turn to
Nowhere to run to even if we could

Too late to save us but try to understand
The seas were empty there was hunger in the land
We let the blind man lead the way too long
Easy to see where we went wrong
Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for

[CHORUS]
We're lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Children children of the moon watch the world go by
Children children of the moon are hiding from the sun and the sky
Children children of the moon watch it all go by
Children children of the moon are blinded by the light in their eyes

No one to turn to
Nowhere to run to even if we could

Follow the pilgrim to the Temple of the Dawn
The altar's empty and the sacrifice is gone
We let the madmen write the golden rules
We were no more than mortal fools
Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for

[CHORUS]
We're lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Children children of the moon watch the world go by
Children children of the moon hiding from the sky

Watching waiting rising falling
Listening calling drifting
Touching feeling seeing believing
Hoping sending leaving

[CHORUS]
I couldn't say why you and I are Gemini
If I tried to write a million words a day
I see your shadow coming closer
Then watch you drifting away

[VERSE]

[CHORUS]
I couldn't say why you and I are Gemini
We're travelling a million worlds away
I see your shadow coming closer
Then watch you drifting away

Silence And I Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eye In The Sky

If I cried out loud
Over sorrows I've known
And the secrets I've heard
It would ease my mind
Someone sharing the load
But I won't breathe a word

[CHORUS]
We're two of a kind
Silence and I
We need a chance to talk things over
Two of a kind
Silence and I
We'll find a way to work it out

When the children laughed
I was always afraid
Of the smile of the clown
So I close my eyes
Till I can't see the light
And I hide from the sound

[CHORUS]

I can hear the cry
Of a leaf on a tree
As it falls to the ground
I can hear the call
Of an echoing voice
And there's no one around

[CHORUS]

Watch me closely catch my eye
If you do I beg you to remind me
Who is stronger who is weak of those who seek
And don't know where to find me

[CHORUS]
Ask me why, I don't know
You ask me why and I say
Now you see me now you don't
I thought by now you'd learned
You're gonna get your fingers burned

Watch me closely understand
That what you see is only an illusion
If I'm wrong and you are right
Then I will light your darkness with confusion

[CHORUS]
Ask me why, I don't know
You ask me why and I say
Chances are you're playing with fire
I thought by now you'd learned
You're gonna get your fingers burned

Watch me closely be aware
That all I do is only to surprise you
Every move is slight of hand
And every word is planned to mystify you

[CHORUS]
Ask me why, I don't know
You ask me why and I say
Don't get fooled a second time
I thought by now you'd learned
You're gonna get your fingers burned

Psychobabble Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eye In The Sky

Tell you 'bout a dream that I have every night
Tell you 'bout a dream that I have every night
It ain't in Kodachrome and it isn't black and white
Take me for a fool if you feel that's right
Well I'm never on my own but there's nobody in sight
I don't know why I'm scared of the lightning

[CHORUS]
Trying to reach me
I can't turn to the left or the right
I'm too scared to run and I'm too weak to fight
But I don't care it's all psychobabble rap to me

Tell you 'bout a dream that I have every night
It's in Dolby stereo but I never hear it right
Take me for a fool well that's alright
Well I see the way to go but there isn't any light
I don't know why I'm scared of the lightning

[CHORUS]
Trying to reach me
Help me to find what I don't wanna know
You're taking me there but I don't wanna go
I don't care it's all psychobabble rap to me

Psychobabble all psychobabble
Psychobabble all psychobabble
I don't care it's all psychobabble rap to me

You're readin' my mind you won't look in my eyes
You say I do things that I don't realise
But I don't care it's all psychobabble rap to me

Psychobabble all psychobabble
Psychobabble all psychobabble

You're lighting a scene that's faded to black
I threw it away cause I don't want it back
But I don't care it's all psychobabble rap

I was just a joker in a serious game
I didn't have the heart to play
But sooner or later
I'll find a reason to throw it away
Risin' on the crest of a natural wave
That never seems to break my way
I'm livin' without it
But I got to do something about it

[CHORUS]
Steb by step little by little
Step by step take it line by line
Move move move, move a little closer
Step by step the deal is mine

I was just a runner in a one horse race
Livin' on the don't pass line
Sooner or later
I got to lose cause I'm wasting my time
Lady Luck must have been a wonderful girl
She's never been a friend of mine
I'm living without her
But I still got that mountain to climb

[CHORUS]

Old And Wise Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Eye In The Sky

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

[CHORUS]
And oh when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

[CHORUS]
And oh, when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see

Prime Time Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

Well even the longest night won't last forever
But too many hopes and dreams won't see the light
And all of the plans I make won't come together

Something in the air
Maybe for the only time in my life
Something in the air
Turning me around and guiding me right

And it's a prime time, maybe the stars were right
I had a premonition, it's gonna be my turn tonight
Gone be my turn tonight

Well even the brightest star won't shine forever
But all of the hands I play are working out right
And ever move I make feels like a winner

Something in the air
Maybe for the only time in my life
Something in the air
Turning me around and guiding me right

And it's a prime time, maybe the stars were right
I had a premonition it's gonna be my turn tonight
Gonna be my turn tonight
Gonna be my turn tonight

Let Me Go Home Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

Waiting till the sun goes down
Shadows walk in the night
Living in a fantasy
In and out of dreams
Nothing is the way it seems

Let me go home,
I had a bad night leave me along
Let me go home,
I've had a hard time being on my own

Every way I turn my eyes
Shadows pass in the night
Haunted by reality
Living out of dreams
Nothing is the way it seems

Let me go home,
I've had a bad night leave me along
Let me go home,
I've had a hard time being on my own

I'm waiting till the sun goes down
Shadows talk in the night
Living out a fantasy
Slipping into dreams
Nothing is the way it seems

Let me go home,
I've had a bad night leave me along
Let me go home,
I've had a hard time being on my own

One Good Reason Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

Gimme one good reason why I should listen to you
I need one good reason why I should do
What you want me to
Gimme some air or I can't breathe
I can't see so I can't believe
Show me just a little more
Oh oh gimme one

Gimme one good reason why I should listen to you
I need one good reason why I should do
What you want me to
Under your thumb ain't no place to hide
I can't choose and I can't decide
Gotta be a better way
Oh oh gimme one

I keep making the same mistake
No win no lose no give and no take
I'm just playing a simple game
And I don't wanna ask you again and again

For one good reason why I should listen to you
Just one good reason why I should do
What you want me to
Under your spell ain't no place to be
Don't mess around with a fool like me
Help me just a little more
Oh oh gimme one, gimme one

Well I keep making the same mistake
No win no lose no give and no take
And I'm just playing a simple game
And I don't wanna ask you again and again

For one good reason why I should listen to you
Just one good reason why I should do
What you want me to
Pull on the string you hold in your hand
Making me jump like a one man band
Gotta be a better way
Oh oh gimme one

Since The Last Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

The hours, the minutes seem to fly
And since the last goodbye
You and I came a long way
The nights, too short to fill with sleep
Or falling in too deep
Seem so far away now

Memories, all we share between us
Everything we were, all that we remain
But memories somehow came between us
Breaking up two minds that were one and the same

The years are moments passing by
No time to wonder why
You and I went the wrong way
The days too short to fill with dreams
Or question what it means
Are a part of me now

Remember all the leaves were falling
Walking hand in hand, standing in the rain
Remember distant voices calling
Whispers in the dark, I can hear them again

Since the last goodbye
It's all the wrong way round
Since the last goodbye
It's all the wrong way round

Memories, all we share between us
Everything we were, all that we remain
But memories somehow came between us
Breaking up two minds that were one and the same

Since the last goodbye
It's all the wrong way round
Since the last goodbye
It's all the wrong way round

Don't Answer Me Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

If you believe in the power of magic,
I can change your mind
And if you need to believe in someone,
Turn and look behind
When we were living in a dream world,
Clouds got in the way
We gave it up in a moment of madness
And threw it all away

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone
Can you change the things we've said and done?

If you believe in the power of magic,
It's all a fantasy
So if you need to believe in someone,
Just pretend it's me
It ain't enough that we meet as strangers
I can't set you free
So will you turn your back forever on what you mean to me?

Don't answer me, don't break the silence
Don't let me win
Don't answer me, stay on your island
Don't let me in

Run away and hide from everyone
Can you change the things we've said and done?

Dancing On A High Wire Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

We're living in a different reality
We're toeing the same line
We give in we call it neutrality,
A joke with no punchline
The silver plated hero
Meets the golden hearted whore
The odds'll give you zero,
She'll be leaving in a few days more
Movin' on forever, maybe she don't care
Holding on together, maybe it just ain't there

You're dancing on a high wire
You need to be so sure
There used to be a lifeline
There isn't anymore

We are the same with no similarity,
We talk at the same time
We believe in freedom and charity
As long as I get mine
The ivory madonna is walking
Through the door
You watch her from a window,
It doesn't matter anymore
Moving on forever, maybe she don't care
Holding on together, maybe it just ain't there

You're dancing on a high wire
You need to be so sure
There used to be a lifeline
There isn't anymore

You Don't Believe Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

My eyes with your vision
My choice but always your decision
My play with your direction
Well it's my lead but always your connection

But when I look into your eyes you don't believe me
I can see it in your eyes you don't believe

My words, your expression
My land, always your possession
My song, your production
My expense is always your deduction

But when I look into your eyes you don't believe me
I can see it in your eyes you don't believe

And the face I see before me
Is both sides of a mirror
You really know you've got a hold on me
And the face you're looking into
Is both sides of a window
And any way you look you see through me

My fame, your reflection
My weakness always your protection
Well it's my terms on your conditions
And they're my tunes but they're your compositions

But when I look into your eyes you don't believe me
I can see it in your eyes you don't believe

Ammonia Avenue Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Ammonia Avenue

Is there no sign of light as we stand in the darkness?
Watching the sun arise
Is there no sign of life as we gaze at the waters?
Into the strangers eyes

And who are we to criticize or scorn the things that they do?
For we shall seek and we shall find Ammonia Avenue

If we call for the proof and we questions the answers
Only the doubt will grow
Are we blind to the truth or a sign to believe in?
Only the wise will know

And word by word they handed down the light that shines today
And those who came at first to scoff, remained behind to pray
Yes those who came at first to scoff, remained behind to pray

When you can't hear the rhyme and you can't see the reason
Why should the hope remain?
For a man will be tired and his soul will grow weary
Living his life in vain

And who are we to justify the right in all we do?
Until we seek until we find Ammonia Avenue

Through all the doubt somehow they knew
And stone by stone they built it high
Until the sun broke through
A ray of hope, a shining light Ammonia Avenue

Let's Talk About Me Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

Let's talk about me for a minute
Well how do you think
I feel about what's been going on
Let's talk about me for a minute
Well how do you think
I feel about what's gone wrong

Let's talk about dreams
I never learned to read the signs
Let's think about what it all means
I never seem to have the time

Let's talk about you and your problems
All that I seem to do is spend the night
Just talking 'bout you and your problems
No matter what I say I can't get it right

Don't think about dreams
Is it all a waste of time
Don't think about what it all means
If you are a friend of mine

Talk about me, for a minute
I'm the one who's losing
Talk about me, for a minute
I'm the one who's always losing out

And how do you think
I feel about what's been going on
Let's talk about me for a minute
Well how do you think
I feel about what's gone wrong

Let's think about dreams
We never seem to have the time
Let's think about what it all means
If you are a friend of mine

Let's talk about me
I'm the one who's losing out
I'm the one who's losing out
I'm the one who's losing out, losing out

Talk about me, for a minute
I'm the one who's losing
Talk about me, for a minute
I'm the one who's always losing out

Separate Lives Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

It's been a long road
We've walked the last mile
We reach the same conclusion
And we stop for a while

Together we know
The way we must go
We're leaving an illusion
That's for us to share
Only for us to share

We live our separate lives
And go our different ways
Cause we don't see eye to eye
And we can't stand face to face

We live our separate lives
While counting all the days
Till the two of us arrive
In another time and place

We share the same thoughts
We read the same lines
We meet on sad occasions
And in happier times

A spoken goodbye
And both of us try
To walk away in silence
That's for us to share
Only for us to share

We live our separate lives
And go our different ways
Cause we don't see eye to eye
And we can't stand face to face

We live our separate lives
While counting all the days
Till the two of us arrive
In another time and place

And always goodbye
But heaven knows why
I can't erase the memory
That's for us to share
Only for us to share
Only for us to share

We live our separate lives
And go our different ways
Cause we don't see eye to eye
And we can't stand face to face

We live our separate lives
While counting all the days
Till the two of us arrive
In another time and place

Days Are Numbers (The Traveller) Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

The traveller is always leaving town
He never has the time to turn around
And if the road he's taken isn't leading anywhere
He seems to be completely unaware

The traveller is always leaving home
The only kind of life he's ever known
When every moment seems to be
A race against the time
There's always one more mountain left to climb

Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you'll know where you are
Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you'll know where you are

The traveller awaits the morning tide
He doesn't know what's on the other side
But something deep inside of him
Keeps telling him to go
He hasn't found a reason to say no

The traveller is only passing through
He cannot understand your point of view
Abandoning reality, unsure of what he'll find
The traveller in me is close behind

Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you'll know where you are
Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you'll know where you are

Sooner Or Later Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

Oh what a price we pay
For the things we say
And the closer I get to you
The further you move away

All the lies we tell
In the games we play
And the longer I think it over
The harder it is to stay

Sooner or later I'll be free
To leave the past behind
Sooner or later you're gonna be
The last thing on my mind
Little by little I'm finding out
The truth behind your eyes
Maybe if I don't show
I thought you might like to know
You're gonna be the last thing on my mind

You didn't want to know
I could have told you so
But the moment I think it's over
The further there is to go
Just a little word
Such an easy way
But the longer I think about it
The harder it is to say

Sooner or later I'll be free
To leave the past behind
Sooner or later you're gonna be
The last thing on my mind
Little by little I'm finding out
The truth behind your eyes
Maybe if I don't show
I thought you might like to know
You're gonna be the last thing on my mind

Vulture Culture Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

Somehow you made it in the big wide world
And you're absolutely home and dry
You got away from a one horse town
And the only way out was to fly

You heard a lot about an easy street
And it seems like the place to be
You heard some talk about a slippery slope
But you think "it can't happen to me"

Vulture culture
Use it or you lose it
Vulture culture
Choose it or refuse it
Hollywood is calling won't you join the dance
Moving onto Wall Street why not take a chance
It's a vulture culture
Never lend a loser a hand
Just a vulture culture
Living off the fat of the land

Nowhere to turn around and catch your breath
It's all relatively trouble free
No need to bother with the bottom line
Or a money back guarantee

You sign a deal that's been etched in stone
It's absolutely cut and dry
That's when the got you in the danger zone
And the only way out is to die

Vulture culture
Use it or you lose it
Vulture culture
Choose it or refuse it
Hollywood is waiting striking up the band
Everyone on Wall Street shakes you by the hand
Such a vulture culture
Never lend a loser a hand
Just a vulture culture
Living off the fat of the land

Use it or you lose it
Choose it or refuse it
Hollywood's a no go not a second chance
Nobody on Wall Street gives you a second glance
It's a vulture culture
Moving to the beat of the band
It's a vulture culture
Never lend a loser a hand
It's just a vulture culture
Living off the fat of the land

Somebody Out There Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

Maybe I'm imagining the things they say about me
Maybe there is really nothing there at all
Standing in the middle while the rumours fly around me
Hiding from a shadow on an empty wall

When my back is turned he's up to something else
And I must not stop believing in myself
m I dreaming will the nightmare just go on
And never end

Somebody out there, says that he's you
Somebody out there, talks like you do
He calls up your number
And you can't get through somebody out there

Wish that I could run away and leave it all behind me
Wish I wasn't hurt by all the things they say
If I didn't need to know the simple truth about me
Wouldn't it be easier to walk away

And I don't need more confusion in my life
No more pain and disillusion in my life
If I'm dreaming will the nightmare just go on
And never end

Somebody out there, stolen your base
Somebody out there, parked in your place
You've no reservation, he's taken your place
Somebody out there, wasting your time
Somebody out there, using your dime
Your friends think you're crazy
They're way out of line
Somebody out there, says that he's you
Somebody out there, thinks like you do
You stare at the mirror
You're looking into
Somebody out there

The Same Old Sun Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Vulture Culture

Tell me what to do
Now the light in my life is gone from me
Is it always the same
Is the night never ending

Tell me what to do
All the hopes and the dreams went wrong for me
There's a smile on my face
But I'm only pretending

Taking my life
One day at a time
Cause I can't think what else to do
Taking some time
To make up my mind
When there's no one to ask but you

The same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright eyes would welcome me home
And the moon would rise way over my head
And get through the night alone

And the same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright stars would welcome me home
And the clouds would rise way over my head
I'll get through the night on my own

Tell me what to do
Now there's nobody watching over me
If I seem to be calm
Well, it's all an illusion
Tell me what to do
When the fear of the night comes over me
There's a smile on my face
Just to hide the confusion

Taking my life
One day at a time
Cause I can't think what else to do
Taking some time
To make up my mind
When there's no one to ask but you

The same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright eyes would welcome me home
And the moon would rise way over my head
I'll get through the night alone

And the same old sun would shine in the morning
The same bright stars would welcome me home
And the clouds would rise way over my head
I'll get through my life on my own

Stereotomy Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Stereotomy

Diamond eyes
That burn me and turn me to stone
Crystalise
And freeze me in clear monochrome

Turn me to stone; do anything you want with me
Turn me to stone; do anything you want
Stereotomy
We can make it together
Do anything you want with me
Do anything you want

Scarlet minds
Possess me and I feel no shame
Silent knives
Dissect me and I feel no pain

Stereotomy
We can make it together
Do anything you want with me
Do anything you want

Stereotomy
We can make it forever
Do anything you want with me
Do anything you want

Starlight beams
Project me in red blue and green
Velvet dreams
Protect me when I hit the screen

Stereotomy
We can make it together
Do anything you want with me, do anything you want
Stereotomy
We can make it forever
It's always the same, it's always the same
Stereotomy, we can make it
We can make it, do anything you want

Turn me to stone
Do anything you want with me
Cover my eyes
There's nothing more they need to see
Turn me to stone
Before there's nothing left of me
Make me a rock
And not what I appear to be
Turn me to stone
Turn me to stone

Beaujolais Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Stereotomy

No clock beside my bed
Don't try to wake me
No phone upon my wall
Who's going to call

No knock upon my door
No news to shake me
Nights like the one before
I can't take no more

Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais puts me to shame
And I don't know why I'm in this place or how I came
Beaujolais and I go crazy
Beaujolais I can't explain
But it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

One race that I can't win
With an alter ego

One chance to sink or swim
What am I to do

One tail that I can't shake
Wherever I go he go
One circuit I can't break
It's a catch twenty two

Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais' the one to blame
And I don't know why I'm in this place or how I came
Beaujolais will be my ruin
Beaujolais I can't complain
Cause it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

Limelight Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Stereotomy

I can see the glow of a distant sun
I can feel it inside
Maybe this day could be the one

I can hear the roar of a distant crowd
They are waiting for me
Calling my name
Shouting out loud

Holding on isn't always easy
I ain't gonna change my mind

Limelight you were all I ever wanted
Since it all began
Limelight shining on me
Telling the world who I am
Limelight don't let me slip right through your fingers
There's a long way to fall
After the years of waiting
I'm gonna show them all

I can see the world in a different light
Now it's easy to say
Where I went wrong
What I did right

I can hear the beat of a different drum
Take it all in my stride
Hold my head high
Second to none

Holding on wasn't always easy
Nothing can change my mind

Limelight you were all I ever wanted since it all began
Limelight shining on me telling the world who I am
Limelight don't let it slip right through your fingers
There's a long way to fall
After all the years of waiting, I'm gonna show them all
Maybe the role's not easy, maybe the prize is small
After all the years of waiting, I'm gonna show them all

In The Real World Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Stereotomy

One more compromise I won't be making
One more easy way out I won't be taking
So many chances don't come twice
So many eyes are made of ice
One more cheating hand I won't be shaking

One more substitute I won't be trying
One more piece of the rock that I'm not buying
So many times we stand and fight
So many reasons can't be right
One more simple truth I'm not denying

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many fools who don't think twice
Too many ways to pay the price
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

One more sacrifice I won't be making
One more golden rule I won't be breaking
No one to let me state my case
No one to tell me to my face
One more sweet surprise I won't be faking

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many games that I can't play
Too many windmills in my way
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

Light Of The World Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Stereotomy

I am just a stranger, in a promised land
I am only learning a game with the rules I don't understand
Going round in circles, I've been round before
I am lost in so many ways
I can walk no more
I can walk no more

I am just a drifter, in an open sea
But no matter how much I try, the tide will not turn for me
Going round in circles, till I reach the shore
I am blown by so many winds
I can take no more
I can take no more

Light of the world, I stand alone,
Cause I could not see the light of the world
Show me the fire, in a true believer's eye

I am just a dreamer, when I close my eyes
I can fly so close to the sun, that I cannot see it rise
Going round in circles, in a silent sky
I am lost for so many words
I cannot say why
I cannot say why

Light of the world, I stand alone,
Cause I could not see the light of the world
Show me the fire, in a true believer's eye

Just a traveller, on an endless flight
But no matter which way I turn, I journey into the night
Going round in circles, till the mountains fall
To believe in so many truths
Makes no sense at all
Makes no sense at all

Light of the world, I stand alone,
Cause I could not see the light of the world
I was afraid, 'cause I could not see the light of the world
Show me the fire, in a true believer's eye

La Sagrada Familia Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Gaudi

Who knows where the road may
lead us, only the fool would say
Who knows if we'll meet along the
way
Follow the brightest star as far
as the brave may dare
What will we find when we get
there

La Sagrada Familia we pray the
storm will soon be over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion
and the lamb

Who knows where the winds may
blow us, only a fool would say
Who knows if we'll ever reach the
shore
Follow a rising sun with eyes that
may only stare
What kind of fire will burn us
there? What kind of fire?
Only a fool would say

La Sagrada Familia the wind has
changed the storm is over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion
and the lamb
La Sagrada Familia we thank the
Lord the danger's over
La Sagrada Familia there's peace
throughout the land

Under clear blue skies our voices
rise in songs of glory
And for all those years our eyes
and ears were filled with tears

Who knows where the world may
turn us, only a fool would say
Who knows what the fate may
have in store
Follow the light of truth as far
as our eyes can see
How should we knows where that
may be? How should we know?

Then the angry skies, the battle
cries, the sounds of glory
And for all those years out eyes
and ears were filled with tears

Who knows where the road may
lead us, only a fool would say
Who knows what's been lost
along the way
Look for the promised land in all
of the dreams we share
How will we know when we are
there? How will we know?
Only a fool would say

La Sagrada Familia the war is won
the battle's over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion
and the lamb
La Sagrada Familia we thank the
lord the danger's over
La Sagrada Familia behold the
mighty hand
La Sagrada Familia the night is
gone the waiting's over
La Sagrada Familia there's peace
throughout the land

Until the next time
Until the next time

La Sagrada Familia

Too Late Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Gaudi

When you were standing in the
rain I gave you shelter
When I was knocking on you door
you gave me none
Well I don't make that kind of deal
with anybody
And I won't be that kind of fool
for anyone

How do you feel when the tables
have been turned?
What will you do now that the bridges
have been burned?

Cause it's
Too late now the magic's lost
Too late now the spell is broken
Too late now to count the cost
Of words that should remain
unspoken

When I need you by my side you
stand above me
And when I look into your eyes
you turn away
Well if that's the best there is
then I won't buy it
Well if that's the only game then I
won'y play

How many danger signs did you
ignore?
How many times have you heard it
all before?

Cause it's
Too late now the magic's lost
Too late now the spell is broken
Too late now to count the cost
Of words that should remain
unspoken

Closer To Heaven Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Gaudi

Rising and falling lighter than air
Silently calling no one is there
Oh, bird that is flying so high and
so free
Closer to heaven than you and me

Voices of strangers keep me from
sleep
Guardian angels watch over the
deep
A ship that is sailing way out to
the sea
Closer to heaven than you and me

Visions of rain fall out of blue
skies
Rivers of tears flow out of dry
eyes
Answer my question tell me no
lies
Is this the real world or a fool's
paradise?

Wind that is blowing so wild and
so free
Closer to heaven than you and me

Closer to heaven longing to be
Closer to heaven than you and me

Visions of rain fall out of blue
skies
Rivers of tears flow out of dry
eyes
Answer my question tell me no
lies
Is this the real world or a fool's
paradise?

Love that lies sleeping wakes in
the night
Secrets for keeping that won't
see the light
I look to the future and I hope it
will be
Closer to heaven than you and me

Closer to heaven longing to be
Closer to heaven than you and me

Standing On Higher Ground Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Gaudi

I know the truth
But I can't say
And I have to turn my head
And look the other way

I'm not afraid
And I won't lie
As long as I see no wrong
I won't need to testify

I see the world
And I'm looking from a high place
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I breathe the air
While they're running in a rat
race
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I feel the blow
But I don't speak
And I have to close my eyes
Pretending I'm asleep

Well I see the tears
But I don't cry
As long as I do no wrong
I don't need an alibi

I see the world
And I'm looking from a high place
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I breathe the air
While they're running in a rat
race
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

Money Talks Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Gaudi

Money don't grow on a money tree
The more you take leave the less
for me
Money don't buy what you really
need
It make an iceman cry, it make a
stone man bleed

But when you get right down to it,
no matter who you are
It rules your life like virgin
queen
One day you might get over it, but
in the meantime
It rules the world like a green
machine

In a bank, in a box, money talks
In the black, on the rocks, money
talks, money talk

Money doesn't lose in the money
game
It drags you down like a ball and
chain
So money don't come with a
guarantee
It make a fool of you, it make a fool
of me

But when you get right down to it,
no matter what you say
It ties you down but it can set you
free
Some day you might get over it, but
in the meantime
It burns you up in the first degree

Moscow, Bangkok, money talk
Park Lane, Boardwalk, money talk

But when you get right down to it,
no matter what you try
You deal the cards, give the
wheel a spin
One day you might get over it but
everybody knows
It's heads you lose and it's tails
they win
Don't have too much to show for
it, that the way it goes
You roll the dice and they cash
you in

Pinball, jukebox, money talks
Redskins, White Sox, money talks
Billboard, cashbox, money talks

Inside Looking Out Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Gaudi

To touch the sky
A dreamer must be
Someone who has more
imagination than me

To reach the stars
A dreamer must fly
Somehow he must live more of a
lifetime than I
For sands of time won't wait
And it may be too late

Now it is the hour and the moment
Don't let the chance go by
Your ship is sailing with the high tide
And all your dreams are on the inside
On the inside looking out, on the
inside, looking out
Looking out, looking out, looking out

To change the world
A dreamer must be
Someone who has more
determination than me

To free his sould
A dreamer must fly
Somewhere he must find a better
reason than I
The hands of time won't wait
And we may be too late

Now is the hour and the moment
Don't let a day pass by
You ship is sailing with the high tide
You could be standing on the inside
On the inside looking out, on the
inside, looking out
On the inside looking out, on the
inside, looking out
Looking out, looking out, looking out

The Three Of Me Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

There's a voice on the phone
Who just called in to say
"Mr Jones isn't home
He'll be gone for the day"

So he pulls down the blind
To adjust his disguise
But it's all in his mind
Which he proudly denies

I turn the boat back from the weir
Where to go from here
I can't hide from each face I see
Looking out from behind them is me

I'm attempting to guess
What they meant when they said
"Mr Jones and his guest
won't be using the bed"

So if I take the rap
While they stay out of sight
I can spring from the trap
When the timing is right

One minute I think I know what I mean
The next I hear voices inside disagree
Why are they laughing at me?

So I pick up the phone
Someone's asking to me
Is the real Mister Jones
Mister one, two or three?

So I say that they're not
But it's not as I say
'Cos they're all that I've got
And I can't get away

And Alice wawes through the glass
Are we home at last
For tomorrow they'll be there you see
Locked away safe inside there with me

'Cos tomorrow they'll be here you'll see
Locked away safe inside they're with me

One minute I think I know what I mean
The next I hear voices inside disagree
Why are they laughing at me?

Turn It Up Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

It's no good believing in somebody else
If you can't believe in yourself
You give them the reason to take all the power and wealth
It's no good you trying to sit on the fence
And hope that the trouble will pass
'Cause sitting on fences can make you a pain in the ass

If there's something you find to believe in
Then the message must get through
So don't just sit in silence
When you know what to do

Turn it up, turn it up, make it louder
Turn it up, turn it up, make it louder

There's no conversation if nobody speaks
And nothing gets done in the end
There's no confrontation when fantasy makes you its friend
So much injustice, too many lies
We don't have to look very far
But nothing will change if we leave things the way that they are

If there's something you find to believe in
Then the message must get through
So don't just sit in silence
When you know what to do

Turn it up, turn it up, make it louder
Turn it up, turn it up, make it louder

If there's something you find to believe in
Then the message must get through
So don't just sit in silence
When you know what to do

Turn it up, turn it up, make it louder
Turn it up, turn it up, make it louder

Wine From The Water Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

You can take me up, you can wind me down
There's no escape, but I'll never drown
No wires or strings, No rough and smooth
Just fires and stings, Watch me closely, Watch my every move

I can count your money while I check your hand
And you know I just can't lose

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Look for a mirror, There's nothing there
I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

I can break these chains, While I'm upside down
Well it may seem strange, I don't hit the ground
Now you see my hand, Is quicker than your eye
You should know by now, What you see here, all of it's a lie

I can count your money while I check your hand
And you know I just can't lose

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Think of a number, I'll get it right
Throw me in the river, Tie my hands up tight

I can wind you up, I can turn you round
No cunning stunts, till the lady's found
No coils or springs, just nice and smooth
No Knaves or Kings, Find the lady, Watch my every move

I can count your money while I check your hand
And you know I just can't lose

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Look for a mirror, No, nothing there
I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
Now I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Think of a number, I'll get it right
You can throw me in the river, Tie my hands up tight

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
Now I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Look for a mirror, There's nothing there
I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

Mr. Time Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

Stealing a moment from Mr. Time
He rocks in his chair like a shiny dime
But it's all for show, all for show.
Wearing your name and a number or two
When the minute's up so are you
But everybody knows, everybody knows.

Watching the hour from the light in his eyes,
He waits for your soul to come in from sky
But it's lost below, lost below.
Turning the wheel of your destiny round,
When the motion stops - no more sounds,
Does anybody care, anybody care.

Where's the man, where's the child
Wrapped together side by side.
Who can tell you what to do,
When Mr. Time has come for you.
See the truth, hear the lies,
Can there be no compromise
And who can tell you what they knew,
When Mr. Time has come for you.

Is it a feeling or deja vu?
When he points his finger calling you
Is it illusion? Just an illusion
Picking up seconds that fall to his feet
He blows them away as rocks on his seat,
Cool as his smile, his smile.

Where's the man, where's the child
Wrapped together side by side.
Who can tell you what to do,
When Mr. Time has come for you.
See the truth, hear the lies,
Can there be no compromise
And who can tell you what they knew,
When Mr. Time has come for you.

I'm Talkin' To You Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

Somehow you fell out of time
Boy you lost your place in line
But don't even try
To drag me down too
I'm talkin' to you, I'm talkin' to you

One star rises, one falls from the sky
You're still hiding the way you feel inside
One word closer to things we need to say
One cut deeper to tear the past away

You think I don't know your mind
But I know fools don't change with time
Until the warning signs
Come out to the blue
I'm talkin' to you, I'm talkin' to you

One light's burning - another fades away
Don't stand watching your dream go down in flames
One step closer, the door is open wide
Come tomorrow we'll see the other side

On and on until we change
Everything remains the same
On and on until we learn
On and on the wheel will turn ...

Wounded words and eyes that lie
You won't let your demons die
Take a look inside
Or you're gonna lose
I'm talkin' to you, I'm talkin' to you

I'm talkin' to you
Whatever you do, the last laugh's on you

On and on until we change
Everything remains the same
On and on until we learn
On and on the wheel will turn ...

Somehow you fell out of time
Boy you lost your place in line ...
One star rises one star falls
Do you even care at all? ... this time

I'm talkin' to you
I'm talkin' to you

Siren Song Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

Days go by
Adrift upon a rolling sky
The miracles escape my eyes
But I still hope

Time, regret
Is this as good as life can get?
It's only when the spirit sets me free I cope

If I seek in every corner
If I search in every doorway
When the water turns to wine will I believe?
If I navigate the river
Would you take me to your island?
Sing s siren song so I can never leave

Long and wide
Eternity from side to side
Lead me through the rapids
guide me to the shore

There's a place
That's far beyond this time and space
When each of us comes face to face with something more

If I open up the channel
Would you send me information
If you tune me to your station I'll receive
If I navigate the river
Would you take me to your island
Sing s siren song so I can never leave

Plans can fail
But only fail to understand
The pyramid will turn to sand and I'll be here
... I will be here

Back Against The Wall Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

Stand up, and with your hand on the Bible
Tell the truth to one and all
'Cause you know that feeling
When you've got your back against the wall.

My God, it's only Tuesday tomorrow
And "Loved One's" gone and blown it all
Now you've got no money and you feel your back against the wall.

Well if you talk to your brothers and they don't give a damn
And you look like you're gonna fall
You can call my number when you feel your back against the wall.

Some Tripper's got you right in a corner
And you feel you're gonna lose it all
Now you don't want trouble but you feel your back's against the wall.

So the guy moves forward but you hold him away
Shit there's no one there to hear you call
So you take your chanches and you push him back against the wall.

Now the guy's in the gutter and you don't give a damn
And he looks kind of weak and small
'Cause you called his number when you felt your back against the wall.

Stand up, and with your hand on the Bible
Tell the truth to one and all
'Cause you know that feeling
When you've got your back against the wall.

Well if you talk to your brothers and they don't give a damn
And you look like you're gonna fall
You can call my number when you feel your back against the wall.

Oh Life (There Must Be More) Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : Try Anything Once

Waves roll out
Out to sea
Tasting the saltwater
Tears upon her cheek

Morning breaks
She's not there
Who could ever find her?
Who would eve care?

No one heard
No one came
No angel of mercy
Appears to know her name

Where is hope
When words fail
All the colours running
Inside when life turns pale

In the dick the boats are harboured
Where the water's cold and still
Oh life, she cries, I've lost the will

From the bridge she sees a lifetime
Oh life, she cries
There must be more...

Tides roll in
Waters rise
Any change of reason
Only clouds her eyes

Arms of grace
She won't feel
All the wounds inside her
That time can never heal

The city lights shine seaward
Swirling in a trance
Her eyes upon the water
Alone in her last dance

From the docks the boats are leaving
As she cries into the dawn
"Oh life, I'm barely holding on"

And she sees her future falling
Til it finds the ocean floor
Oh life, she cries
There must be more

There must be more

And with the early light
She'll sail into the clear
The winds are all behind her
The hour's almost here

From the bridge she hears the voices
Turn into a roar
Oh life she cries
there must be more

On the dock her soul is sinking
But her spirit longs to soar
Oh life, she cries
There must be more

There must be more
There must be more
Oh life I'm barely holding on

There must be more
There must be more
Oh life there must be something more

So I imagine what could be
Where the horizon cuts the air
Look for me out there

Too Close To The Sun Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

There must be a thousand ways
Holding us within this maze
Every path we take leads us astray
Comfort me my only son
Till the day my work is done
There's no earthly reason we should stay

And when the wind gets under these wings
You will feel what freedom brings
Stay right by me, walk don't run
I don't want you flying too close to the sun

Turn your eyes towards the light
Steal away in silent flight
The skies are calling out to you and me
Over sea and over land
God protect us with your hand
Bring us safely to our destiny

And now the wind is under our wings
We can taste what freedom brings
Stay right by me, walk don't run
I don't want you flying too close to the sun

God forgive his fall from grace
The sea conceals his resting place
Can we learn to stay behind the line
If we have the means to fly
Some of us will surely die
Being reckless was his only crime

And now the wind is under our wings
We can taste what freedom brings
Stay right by me, walk don't run
I don't want you flying too close to the sun

Blown By The Wind Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

All along the shoreline
There are footprints by the sea
They head into the distance...
Then they lead right back to me
I made the break to freedom
Now I'm following the dream
You're never going to get here
If you hold the old routine

Now everything we possess
That fills our empty lives
Is only good for leaving far behind

We are blown by the wind
Just like clouds in the sky
We don't know where we're going,
Don't know why
We just ride with the wind
And we'll drive through the rain
We don't where we'll get to
Or if we'll get back again

Call along the valley
And you just may find us there
I couldn't say for certain
Cause we may be anywhere
Head into the sunset
Or just wander out to sea
Wherever your heart leads you
Is the place you're meant to be

And someone who could be impressed
With ordinary lies
Could really use a little peace of mind

We are blown by the wind
Just like clouds in the sky
We don't know where we'll go,
But we'll get by
We just ride with the wind
And we'll drive through the rain
We don't where we'll get to
Or if we'll get back again

Now everything we possess
That fills our empty lives
Is only good for leaving far behind

We are blown by the wind
Just like clouds in the sky
We don't know where we're going,
Don't know why
We just ride with the wind
And we'll drive through the rain
We don't where we'll get to
Or if we'll get back again

I Can't Look Down Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

Another passenger
"Your baggage thank you sir"
I don't wanna go
What am I doing here
I feel so sick with fear
God don't let it show

I must control myself
You must control me too

Cover my eyes cause I'm so high
I can't look down
I'm scared to fly and I'm so high
I can't look down

They say they'll care for me
But I would rather be
Both feet on the ground
What if the engine dies
These are no Friendly Skies'
My head's spining round

It's all a twist of fate
But it's myself I hate

Cover my eyes cause I'm so high
I can't look down
Afraid to fly and I'm so high
I can't look down

I must control myself
You must control me too

Cover my eyes cause I'm so high
I can't look down
Afraid to fly and I'm so high
I can't look down
I can't look down.....

Brother Up In Heaven Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

A boy flies for freedom
But dies for the peace
In the clouds, he waits for an answer
But there's no release

It's strange here without you
And it's so hard to see
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

Oh brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

I still see his shadow
His laugh lingers on
When I dream, we're all back together
When I wake, he's gone
It's strange here without you
This was not meant to be
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

And though we try to change the world
A flower when it's cut will surely die
So why do men with so much hate
Destroy what they cannot create
While we all stand by

We will look back in anger
But you helped us to see
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

Oh brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

Fall Free Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

What's the use of worrying
If we'll be here tomarrow
All we need to be is here today
Don't care if you're rich
Or if you have to beg and borrow
You can always find a way
Dive and breakaway

Fall free
Freedom's in the air
It's calling you
Your heart is there
Fall free
Blaze accross the sky
The perfect fall
The perfect high

Mother earth looks peaceful
As we climb towards the ceiling
We must be ten thousand feet or more
Hear the windrush screaming
While we fight to curb our feelings
As we stand beside the door
Let our spirits soar

Fall free
Freedom's in the air
It's calling you
Your heart is there
Fall free
Blaze accross the sky
The perfect fall
The perfect high

So Far Away Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

We say welcome to the mission
Show us all what you can do
We need a man with vision
So we put our trust in you
And now we hope sincerely
That you'll do the best that you can do

Oh for sure it won't be easy
And we will have to risk our lives
Some will try to break us
And cut us down to size
But just remember
There can be no consolation prize
Not in our eyes

It's a long way to go
We can't wait one more day
We need someone to light up the way
We may run out of time
Can you hear what we say?
Because heaven is so far away

Although time is getting short
There's still some sand left in the glass
And now we have a living breathing
Rocket man at last
It's time to take a step
And nail our colours to the mast

No more talk of great adventures
When it's movement that we need
It must be our intention
That we never loose the lead
So count us down to zero
And let's get up to speed
We're up and away

It's a long way to go
We can't wait one more day
We need someone to light up the way
We may run out of time
So believe what we say?
Because heaven is so far away

And so now they cry for justice
As if justice will be done
But the eye up in the sky
Was flying to close to the sun
The Challenger has fallen
And the race has now been run....

One Day To Fly Lyrics

Artist : ALAN PARSONS PROJECT, THE
Album : On Air

Where does a dream belong
Locked in the mind on the edge of time
Like a ship lost in a storm
How do we find the key
Longing to see, through the artist's eye
Maybe only birds can fly

The man must be insane who knows
A mind alive with images so strange
So close but never rode the sky

Watching the birds as they sail on the wind
Trying to figure out the reason why
Picturing wings held together with string
One day to fly

Someone said and I believe
Try if you dare, you can walk on air
A dream is all you need
A circle that takes you high
Lighter than air as the Earth goes by
Through a spiral in the sky

The man must be insane who knows
A mind alive with images so strange
So close but never rode the sky

Watching the birds as they sail on the wind
Trying to figure out the reason why
Picturing wings held together with string

Just a charcoal sketch on canvas
Made them laugh but now they see
That the artist had a vision
That the wind could set us free
It's a bridge until tomorrow
Taking us beyond the sun
As the artist paints his picture
The story's just begun

Analyzing, criticizing
Fear of the unknown
Theorizing, visualizing
The road to take us home
If it takes forever
Someone's gonna fly
We may never get to heaven
But still we're gonna try

Watching the birds
As they sail on the wind
One day to fly
