Lyrics: Wake Up And Smell The Coffee (2001)

 

Never grow old

I had a dream
Strange visit
It was my perfect day

Open my eyes
I realize
This is my perfect day

Hope you never grow old
Hope you never grow old
Hope you never grow old
Hope you never grow old

Do-do-do-do

Birds in the sky
They look so high
This is my perfect day

I feel the breeze
I feel it is
It is my perfect day

Hope you never grow old
Hope you never grow old
Hope you never grow old
Hope you never grow old

Forever young
I hope you stay
Forever young
Do-do-do-do        

Analyse

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Breathe the air out there
We are free, we can be wide open

For you open my eyes
To the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay
Wide open

Don't analyse
Don't analyse
Don't go that way
Don't live that way
That would paralyse your evolution

Don't analyse
Don't analyse
Don't go that way
Don't live that way
That would paralyse your evolution

La la la
This greatest moment
La la la
The strangest day
La la la
The greatest love of them all

La la la
This greatest moment
La la la
The strangest day
La la la
The greatest love of them all

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Breathe the air out there
Fantasize, fantasize
We are open

For you open my eyes
To the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay
Together

La la la
This greatest moment
La la la
The strangest day
La la la
The greatest love of them all

La la la
This greatest moment
La la la
The strangest day
La la la
The greatest love of them all
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la          

Time is ticking out

We'd better think about the things we say
We'd better think about the games we play
The world went round, around and round

We'd better think about the consequences
We'd better think about the global senses
The time went down, the time went down

What about Chernobyl?
What about radiation?
We don't know, we don't know

What about deprivation?
Gluttony, the human nation?
We don't know, we don't know
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all

Time is ticking out

Looks like we screwed up the ozone layer
I wonder if the politicians care
The time went down, the time went down

What about our children then?
Is there nothing left for them?
We don't know, we don't know

For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all
Ahh la la la the oxygen, ahh la la la the oxygen

For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all
Time is ticking out yeah
Time is ticking out           

Dying inside

Terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying
It was a terribe thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside
To see her dying
Won't you come out
And play the games we played
Won't you speak out
And say the things you'd say
The lady loved her gold
The lady lost her soul

It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying
It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside
To see her dying
Do you remember the things we used to do?
Do you remember the way it was for you?
The lady loved her gold
The lady lost her soul

It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying
It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside
To see her die
La...          

This is the day

I never had a friend like you
This is the day
Your skin is white, your eyes are blue
This is the day

But the wind might change
I will still remain
I will always be there for you

A-ha

These thoughts, they circle in my mind
This is the day
The demons I can't leave behind
This is the day

Don't be insecure
I'll be at your door
I will always be there for you

We'll save you
We'll save you
We'll save you
Stay! Stay!
We'll save you
We'll save you
We'll save you
Stay! Stay!
Stay!

Put forth thy grace into my mind
This is the day
Put forth thy grace thou art divine
This is the day

Don't be insecure
I'll be at your door
I will always be there for you

We'll save you
We'll save you
We'll save you
Stay! Stay!
We'll save you
We'll save you
We'll save you
Stay! Stay!
Stay!

But the wind might change
I will still remain
I will still be here

But the wind might change
I will still remain
I will always be there for you

We'll save you
We'll save you
We'll save you
Stay! Stay!
We'll save you
We'll save you
We'll save you
Stay! Stay!
Stay!        

The concept

Come here, my lover
Something's on your mind
Listen to no other
They could be unkind

Hold on to the concept of love, always
Darling
Hold on to the concept of love, always

Take life between us
Live it like we choose
They'll never see us
I will hear you call

Hold on to the concept, always
Darling
Hold on to the concept, always

Night all night all night     

Wake up and smell the coffee

I, I went to hell
I might as well
Learn by my mistakes
I at twenty-four
Was insecure
Do whatever it takes
Come on and

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter
It's time, smell the coffee, the coffee
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter
This time smell the coffee, the coffee
She's only got one reason to live
This is your life

She's only got one message to give
Give it tonight
She's so gorgeous
I'll do anything

She's so gorgeous
I'll lose everything, everyday
Come on and
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter
It's time, smell the coffee, the coffee

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter
This time smell the coffee, the coffee
She's only got one reason to live
This is your life
She's only got one message to give
Give it tonight

She's so gorgeous
I'll do anything
She's so gorgeous
I'll lose everything
She's so gorgeous
I'll do anything
She's so gorgeous
I'll lose everything, everyday      

Pretty eyes

Pretty eyes, pretty eyes
Not a cloud in my day
Not a cloud in my way
Angel eyes, no disguise
No pretention is here
No pretention, no fear

Don't leave me calling
Don't leave me falling
Don't leave me calling
Don't leave me falling

Stay awhile, stay awhile
I will tell you my mind
I will tell you my mind
I would give everything
Just to take all your pain
Just to take all your pain

Don't leave me calling
Don't leave me falling
Don't leave me calling
Don't leave me falling     

I really hope

I've been down this road before
Now I'm coming back for more
This is like a déja-vu
I was born to be with you

Into the night we went to sleep
You and I were meant for keeps
Into the night we went to play
You and I

I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way
I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way

So beware of the pitfall
We don't have to change at all
And our light will not burn out
It's what freedom's all about

Into the night we go to sleep
You and I were meant for keeps
Into the night we go to play
You and I

I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way
I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way
I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way
I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way

I really hope that you'll always be here
I really hope that you'll always be near
Take me and like me I'll always be here
I really hope that you'll always be near  

Every morning

My God the years have passed me by
Where was I hiding?
I've been around the world for some time
It's oblivious now

The morning sun is in my eyes
It doesn't hide the lines
It does not bear
The great disguise
Happy birthday baby
Happy birthday

Every morning
Every morning in time
We're doing fine
Every morning
Every morning in time
We're doing fine

I don't remember being young
Was it so much fun?
I don't remember feeling this way
It was not for me

I payed a price
A sacrifice
It was worth it then
My time has come
I now feel young
Begin again
Happy birthday

Every morning
Every morning in time
We're doing fine
Every morning
Every morning in time
We're doing fine  

Do you know

Leaving awhile
Might as well smile
Might as well smile
I will be strong
We'll carry on
And I'll always hold on to my smile

What would you say?
Would you say that it's sad for feeling this way?
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
In my

Do you know what I think?
Do you know what I think about it?
About it
I guess you don't know anything
You don't know anything about it
About it
Do you know what I think?
Do you know what I think about it?
About it
I guess you don't know anything
You don't know anything about it
About it

Dust in my eyes
I realize
That I'm thinking
Of you
I'll take my car
I will go far
I'll be lonely
For you

What would you say?
Would you say that it's sad for feeling this way?
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
In my
Do you know what I think?
Do you know what I think about it?
About it

I guess you don't know anything
You don't know anything about it
About it
Do you know what I think?
Do you know what I think about it?
About it

I guess you don't know anything
You don't know anything about it
About it    

Carry on

I didn't understand the things you're going through
I never understood, I really never knew
Carry on
Carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on
Carry on
We'll have a glass of wine
Or a cigarette

Take destiny by the hand
And lead it far away
Take it to another land
We will all decay
Carry on
Carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on
Carry on
We'll have a glass of wine
Or a cigarette      

Chocolate brown

But I tried
And I sighed
You didn't listen to me
I felt that way
Still I try
And I sigh
You wouldn't understand me
I felt that way
But you're so young
And you don't get me now
I feel so guilty

And you are chocolate brown
Chocolate brown
I can't wait
Not too long
I will make it up to you
Chocolate brown
Still I learn
And I learn
There's so much to think about here
So much to lose
But it's just fine
And you don't see it now
Don't make me guilty

Please don't chocolate brown
Chocolate brown
I can't wait
Not too long
I will make it up to you
Chocolate brown
Chocolate brown
