Lyrics: The More You Know (1998)

 

Magic Love

Many a good time just to say you're sorry
Finally move on it's the best you can do
Got to be got out that train from the station
A new train is coming right just for you

Many a door shuts in the face of freedom
Breaking the bad news till they're finally gone
Only to find out when one door is shattered
A new door is opening in your heart

Ready for lively love
Ready for lively love
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Call it a new day get the magic ticket
Only the right way you eventually say
Didn't you know yet it's your god given freedom
Never imagine a worried mind as magic love

In the magic dream
It's a magic love
And the way it seems

Oh lots of giving
Oh lots to laugh at
Yeah lots of loving
Only if you can

Many a new plan made from old misgivings
Many a good work puts the tempers to rest
Only a life gone full of tears and sorrow
When you can get it together now with you

And the magic love
In the magic dream
In the magic love

It's your god given right to know
It's your god given right to see
It's your god given right to be free
It's your god given right

Give it to me now see the truth is coming
Finally now taking the path to be free
Ready or not now see the day is shouting
I will be holding this magic love

Oh lots of giving
Oh lots to laugh at
Yeah lots of loving
Only if you can
Lots of giving
Lots to laugh at
Yeah, lots of loving
Only if you can

It's your god given right to know
It's your god given right to see
It's your god given right to be free
It's your god given right

Maybe

It's a fact, love is a gamble
It's a fact, love is a gamble

Maybe I got it too much
Maybe I got it inside
And if you've got love together
Well that's all right with me

The more that they write about it
I'm gonna mend this song of life
I've got the nerve to sing about it
I never joke and never ask why

So maybe we go together
Maybe I hear it fast
Maybe I get the message
Maybe I see it last

It's a fact, love is a gamble
It's a fact, love is a gamble

Take away what you got
And what your life is left with nothing
Take away what you believe
And they you hope this side of nothing
Take away what you feel
Nobody can stop you suffering

It's a fact, love is a gamble
It's a fact, love is a gamble

First time take away
Second time take away
Everybody want it, pull pull together
First time take away
Second time take away
Everybody want it, pull pull together

Take away what you got
And what your life is left with nothing
Take away what you believe
And they you hope this side of nothing
Take away what you feel
Nobody can stop you suffering
Nobody can stop you suffering

First time take away
Second time take away
Everybody want it, pull pull together
First time take away
Second time take away
Everybody want it, pull pull together

It's a fact (first time take away, second time take away)
Love is a gamble (everybody want it, pull pull together)
It's a fact (first time take away, second time take away)
Love is a gamble (everybody want it, pull pull together)

Say

You know what they say when they say - you got it coming to you
(Only in a matter of time will it come to you)
And then you're faced with the choice - I guess to give your love
(It's only when you're ready to do it)
It's just a point of the game - you've gotta push it to you
(Opening the spirit in your heart)

And now you're finally convinced - it will work for you
I guess that's what they try to say to you
(Na si ma wu, na si mende pe tu milla mune mundi)
To you, to you, to you
(Na si ma wu, na si mende pe tu milla mune mundi)
And you, and you, and you
(Na si ma wu, na si mende pe tu milla mune mundi)
To you, to you, to you

They say it's better to be blind - to see what really happens
(I don't believe that for one minute)
I'm just a cog in the wheel - I twist and then I turn
(Anyway is better than no way at all)
Please tell me where are you now - an independent feeling
(You imagine what you want to be)
You've grown so tall in your world - begin to see the light
I guess that's what they try to say to you
To you, to you, to you

I can rely on your love - to help me through tomorrow
(Only if you want to be alive)
Alive and clear as it can be - I want you on my side
(Only if you promise to be true)
I do reach out for the time - to make it all better
(Better than forever really to be yeah)
So now the game is coming clear - clearer into view

I guess that's what they try to say to you
To you, to you, to you
(Na si ma wu, na si mende pe tu milla mune mundi)
And you, and you, and you
(Na si ma wu, na si mende pe tu milla mune mundi)
To you, to you, to you
(Na si ma wu, na si mende pe tu milla mune mundi)

Olo lo le le le, ole lo la la la-acap

The More You Know

How do you get even with your sacred senses
Every time, your brother don't mind
I don't know we've been running through your friendship
Try to, deep in time
Your brother don't know

First to touch, when you lose
Finally time again
Talk, talk, talk will spill the cup
Then break you down and then
Put your thoughts to action
And the consequence is mine
You don't know
You don't know
You're making time

So who's to blame, don't ever doubt it
Your brother don't know
I said who's to blame
Don't ever doubt it
Your brother don't know

Last time you tried to ride it
Check yourself and realize
Your ability, your ability, your ability
And the more you try to push that limit
How you justify you might not get it
So you're backing out, a sign of your disability

Eh! I don't mind and they don't care
But your brother does
I said I don't mind and they don't care
But your brother does

Who to believe, who to believe in
Who to believe, who to believe in

Acts of faith set you apart
And it's all right 'cause your brother don't know

Escape gets you going
So you finally try again
But the down and out they call the police
So they push you back again
And then you get to get it screaming
And the lessons you seem to never learn
It's all about being human
I believe it is your turn

Say my brother is my brother (brother)
My brother is my soul
I said my brother is my brother (brother)
Yes brother is my soul
Say my brother

Heaven's Love

Even if things don't work out right, who knows which way it goes
Any time will tell if you wanna be, if you want a life that's good
Everything that comes to you each time, no matter how it ties
No matter how it breaks, no matter what it takes to know that you believe in you

Something tells me you believe in you
Always try to touch the sky in you
Don't forget that we believe in you, you

Even when things just twist you round
Your dreams come flying down
Going in a spin don't know what you got
Don't know what you got to bring it in
People can turn you on yourself even when you gotta sell
'Cause everything's about, everything you do
When you go around, you're never gonna let it through

All because you let them get to you
Always when inside you've got Heaven's love
Don't forget that you were made for loving
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I guess they call it Heaven's love
Yes they call it, Heaven's love
Guess they call it, Heaven's love

All because you, yeah, experiment with your life
Always when you try, call it heaven's love
Don't forget that you were made for loving
You were made for loving, loving, loving

I guess they call it Heaven's love
Yes they call it, Heaven's love
Guess they call it, Heaven's love

Faithfully

Faithfully, faithfully
Faithfully, faithfully
Where do we hide it, where do we speak from
There comes a time and a place that we believe from
Fortunes together as each has a place
To regain all the pleasure that enters your heart

Faithfully, faithfully - believe me now
Faithfully, faithfully - believe be faithful
Faithfully, faithfully

When you have found Faith, speaks to you in volumes
There comes a time and a place that you believe from
Fountains of wisdom will shine in your eyes
Don't be too, too surprised that each day is a test
So perplexed as to reason no sense in trying to hard

Faithfully, faithfully - believe me now
Faithfully, faithfully - believe be faithful
Faithfully, faithfully

Only when you start to realise
Can you understand the strength in your heart
Only when you start to believe
Then you will feel it from the start

Faithfully, faithfully
Faithfully, faithfully

Freely and finally complete to your design
To love and forever believe that you will be
Forever be free from the discourse that rattles your soul
But if you're looking for a reason
And if you're seeking complication
Now it's time to start the question
Within the source there is no answer
No answer that can be termed human
Human is the blessing we are living through

For if there is no complication
There would be no aspiration
To learn the meaning of existence would only stop you living quick
Then there would be no more reason for this design, we call love

Faithfully, faithfully, faithfully, faithfully
Faithfully, faithfully, faithfully, faithfully

We call love

Faithfully, faithfully, faithfully, faithfully
Faithfully, faithfully, faithfully, faithfully

Gimme Love

Who is there to worry about you now
If there's a body in your heart to give
And there's a world outside of you now, and you gotta let it live
So if you never, ever let it run, I'll never chain you to my life
'Cause I believe you gotta leave your worries behind

You know you worry so bad, I never thought that it could hurt me
And if you ever imagine why, I never thought again about me
It seems it only happens when you're feeling good
Come and gimme, gimme love until the light shines again

Come and gimme love and let the sun to live
Come and gimme, gimme love until you choose my life
Never, never gonna let you worry again my love

Oh my feelings, don't mess my world my time of day again
Don't discard my friends, this world seems to break 'em
But again it's something left alone we'll find a way to
Let it come so true
If you can do, when you know your love is overdue

If I was to let you go out and get it
You know your work would be just fine
You want to give a lotta when you gonna get it
You never let it come
Between you in your mind
Never talk, talk, talk about
You'll always be a friend of mine
You're gonna let this sunbeam happen, happen to you

Come and gimme gimme gimme love until the light shines again
Come and gimme gimme love right from you
Come and gimme gimme love until I lose my pain
Come and gimme gimme love I believe in you
Everybody
Come come and gimme love and let the light shine through
Come come and gimme love just from you, just from you
Yeah, yeah...

Dancing Fool

Better get a life if you do it to me
Got to move it through forget to
Run fast, run fast, faster than you've ever done before
Better get a life just do it
How can you betray a friendship?
Run fast, run fast, whatever, forever

How you waste your money, do it
How you waste your body, do it
How you waste your heat love
How you waste your money, do it
How you waste your body, do it
How you waste your heat love

Say that you play the game, say that you need the fix
Walking in to darkness, you'd better get a life
Get a life and quickly, everybody dancing, looking at you
They call him the dancing fool
Call him the dancing fool
They call him the dancing fool
Call him the dancing fool
See the dancing fool

Better get a life you just walked into it
Like a wall you walked into it
So fast, so fast, so fast, so fast
Better get a life you just walked into it
Like a wall you walked into it
So fast, so fast, so fast, so fast
Now let him go to forever, whatever
Now let him go to forever, whatever
Now let him go to forever, whatever
Now let him go to forever, whatever
Now let him go to forever, whatever
Now let him go to forever, whatever

Got to get a life if you're walking to it
They call him the dancing fool, call him the dancing fool
Got to get a life if you're walking to it; see the dancing fool
They call him the dancing fool, call him the dancing fool
They call him the dancing fool, call him the dancing fool
See the dancing fool

Sad

And who are they to know, as they are to achieve it
And who are they to change, when they don't even know it
An older sign of life upon their heads
And all because they came around and touched you
Like you thought you had
Blew it out into the sky and someone else could even die
As always in their eyes they would be true
And fly right up to you and say that they would always trust in you
Now every night it comes

An older sign of life upon their heads
So when they came around and talked about the way
They treat their children
When they talked about their death and said that
They would sometimes hold out
When they crawled out between the boards alive and
Tried to stretch for air to survive
How were they supposed to be alive at all
So every night it comes

And who are they to know, as they are to achieve it
And who are they to change, when they don't even know it
An older sign of life upon their heads
How many souls have cried for years
Thank God the angels make them see
And take their souls to liberty
Arise above the way that humans treat their children so, so low
Pushing all the love away
Showing them is this way to live

How are they supposed to be alive
(These are all the children)
Without love how are they supposed to be
(These are all the visions)
Without love (these are all the children)

It's here in the horrible world
In forces of the time
In the garden of hate
And the forces that lie
It cuts into the vine
Someone gets to bring a change
You can help it in your mind
These are all your children

Ever

I don't think I've ever told you
How much I believe in you
And every time I touch you
This feeling comes through

Oh! the mornings
Oh! the soul love
Can't forget it
How you look when I look at you

I never could be so happy
All over the world with you
So here I go trying to tell you
How much I love you

Don't ever begin to doubt this
No matter how had the breaks
My body 'n' soul forever
Whatever it takes

Oh! so magical
Oh! so mystical
When you're in my arms
Loving me when I'm loving you

I know this love was blessed in heaven
Believe me when I say it's true
No other could begin to give me
What's coming through

I'm wanting to always tell you
How much I believe in you
So if I don't seem to say it. Believe me it's true

Yeah! believe me it's true. Yeah! Yeah!
Believe me it's true

I don't think I've ever told you
How much I believe in you
And every time I touch you
This feeling comes through

Oh! the mornings
Oh! the soul love
Can't forget it
How you look when I look at you

Free (Some Would Say)

Some would say that the point of where you start is the beginning
Some would say it's the end of the space
Some would say there's no reason at all to be wishing
When all along you must face what you must face
I believe it is said that you must be eternal
And to prove it you just let yourself go
And love it when you can
Love it when you can, love it when you can

It's a fact like they say
When the push it comes to shoving
You'll never ever go the wrong way to go

You are where you are supposed to be
Whether you like it or not you're living
And your excuse is you want to be free
Free to learn and to love
Free to learn and to love
Free to learn and to love

Some would say that the point of where you start is the beginning
Some would say it's the end of the space
Some would say there's no reason at all to be wishing
When all along you must face what you must face

I believe it is said that you must be eternal
And to prove it you just let yourself go
And love it when you can
Love it when you can, love it when you can

Some TV

Something in the dark is staring much to bad beginnings
Gangs of hungry kids are out stealing all the winnings
Strip the tourists on the floor, he is left with nothing
All he's got is life, his soul and bad dreams ever more

Someone in the dark is fixing dynamite, destroying
Put it in the main street where the shops are full of bodies
Agents have protection, cold religious killing
Market their releases though they're sent from heaven's door

Now we're not blind, now we can see
The truth is out, on your TV, on your TV

See it every day we focus CNN for dinner
Not so many killings everybody is a winner
Down in the dark the main street for the power and the glory
Must be something on the news to set our hearts on fire

We're not blind, yes we can see
The news is bad, the big TV

One thing hits me more and more, I know you're gonna get it
Good news doesn't sell at all, no point in trying to tell it
More and more you realise good news is not important
Look around there's so much more, my TV is distorted

Don't be so blind, yes you can see
Distorted minds, on our TV

One thing hits me more and more, I know you're gonna get it
Good news doesn't settle all, no point in trying to tell it
More and more you realise good news is not important
Look around there's so much more, my TV is distorted

Don't be so blind, yes you can see
There is good news, on your TV

So this morning I went to turn on my tape
On my Magnavox colour TV
It turned around and said "Good morning Jon!
How are you today, today?"
Are you ready for some football?
Are you ready for The Price Is Right?
Are you ready for some football?
I thought, I'm ready for some football
I love my TV
It's speaking to me
I love my TV

Youth

See it in the songs of youth, worshiping the souls of love
How we dance upon the ground we bring together
Can you hear the echo sound, showing us a wisdom found
Was there ever so much trust in our foundation

'Cause I believe the world, the earth is fine all right
And we keep believing we shall live forever
And I've truly learned the lessons, soul eternal love
We all need to stand to trust in the light

See it as a song of youth, telling us to understand
Never before has a child had so much pressure
Helping in so many ways, ready to begin this age
Children of the 21st century come now

For they shall be the spirit, they shall be the truth
Where the colors and the creeds all come together
They will magnify our deeds and show us all the way
Better to be sacred than sorry

See it in the songs of youth, worshiping the soul of love
How we danced upon the ground we bring together
You know you can imagine this, you know you can imagine that
All we are is you and I and the stars above
All we are is you and I and the stars above
All we are is you and I and the stars above
And the spirit of love
And the spirit of love
And the spirit of love
