Lyrics: Choose Love (2005)

 

Fading In And Out

Life is fast, life is strange
Every breath is filled with happiness or pain
The story goes till you reach the end
Why give it up when there's a chance to start again?

How many times do we need to hear it
There's a light out there
No need to fear it

Fading in, fading out
Isn't that what life's about?
First you're here, then you're gone
Still the world goes on and on
But that's all right, I'm here right now
It takes so long sometimes to figure out

Fading in and fading out
Lightening strikes and shines so bright
But when it's gone we're never left without the light
But I believe there's more than this
It all can't be just show biz

Fading in, fading out
Isn't that what life's about?
First you're here, then you're gone
Still the world goes on and on
But that's all right, I'm here right now
It takes so long sometimes to figure out

Tell me why we're here
All we really need is love
And when I disappear
I pray that I have left enough

Fading in, fading out
Isn't that what life's about?
First you're here, then you're gone
Still the world goes on and on
But that's all right, I'm here right now
It takes so long sometimes to figure out
Fading in and fading out

Give Me Back The Beat

Living on the street tonight's
A lonely place to be all right, oh lord
The rhythm of the city, I don't find it pretty anymore
Like I did before
You walked out my door

Give me back the beat
Give me back the beat
Give me back the only thing that makes my life complete

If you come back to me
I'll be dancing in the street
I miss the two we had before
That made me tap my feet
That used to rock this boy asleep now that you're gone

Give me back the beat and let's rock on
I feel the pounding of your heart
But I'm alone here in the dark, it's true
Alleys filled with misery
Shadows of your memories break thru
I never knew
How much I needed you

Give me back the beat
Give me back the beat
Give me back the only thing that makes my life complete

If you come back to me
I'll be dancing in the street
I miss the two we had before
That made me tap my feet
That used to rock this boy asleep now that you're gone

Give me back the beat and let's rock on
I won't sleep baby, I can't eat
I'm in too deep
It's a high fall running into a brick wall
All by yourself
But I know what will help

Give me back the beat
Give me back the beat
Give me back the only thing that makes my life complete

Oh My Lord

Help me lord
Help me lord
I need your love so bad

When I'm in darkness and full of fear
I know the answer when you are here
Now I believe, it's all become clear

Oh my lord
Oh my lord
I need your love so bad

When my heart is wandering hopeless and sad
I look for the answers, the ones that you have
I have to let go to be in your hands

Oh

The sky is blue
Because of you
You're everywhere
With peace and love

We'll rise above
And find you there
Of all that's uncertain, after all I've been through
The one thing that's certain, that I know is true
The love that we need all comes from you

Oh my lord
Oh my lord
I need your love so bad

Help me lord
Help me lord
I need your love so bad

Hard To Be True

Here in the night is when the memories fly
Cause when I'm alone I'm alone and I can't lie
Doesn't matter what I do
I'm still in love with you

Why is it so hard, so hard to be true?
If I could take back all the things I've done
When I live in the past I relive every one
Lying to myself, I knew
I'd break my heart in two

Why is it so hard, so hard to be true

Time after time
Am I a record that's been broken
I know that I'm
Outside a door that I can't open
The words "true love" I've never spoken

Time after time
Am I a record that's been broken
I know that I'm
Outside a door that I can't open
The words "true love" I've never spoken

It's such a surprise to feel so much regret
But you were a love I know I won't forget
What I did I can't undue
I really wish I knew

Why is it so hard, so hard
Why is it so hard, so hard
Why is it so hard, so hard to be true

Some People

When it starts to go wrong
And I feel like it can't go back
It's just a bump in the road
It's just a penny that's on the track

Some people can't move on
And some can't let it go
But I can...and you can
So we don't have to worry 'bout that

Sometimes it seems
Like we'll never be whole again
Like an oak in the wind
We bend a little bit now and then

Some people won't reach out
Some people won't reach in
But I will...and you will
So we don't have to worry 'bout that

Hold on tight
Try with all your might
It might get a little rough sometimes
Like a ship on a stormy night

But it's all gonna be all right
At the end of the day
Love is the only word

And there's nothing to say
It's the best one we've ever heard
Some people don't forget
The troubles that come their way

But I do... and you do
So we don't have to worry 'bout that

I do... and you do
So we don't have to worry 'bout that

Wrong All The Time

Why am I wrong all the time?
That's all that I want to know
I used to do everything right
It doesn't seem that long ago

Why am I wrong all the time?
I'm not the one who has changed
You look with a new point of view
I still look at you the same

I'm the same man that I was
Now all you see are my mistakes
All I want to give is love
But the way that we are
Makes my heart break

Give me a reason to go on
Or I'm gonna walk out that door
And you'll realize when I'm gone
I'm the same man that I was before

I'm the same man that I was
Now all you see are my mistakes
All I want to give is love
But the way that we are
Makes my heart break

Give me a reason to go on
Letting love die is unkind
If I still know you're the one
Why am I wrong all the time?
How can I be wrong all the time?

Don't Hang Up

[Ringo:]
With my inside outside
Looking for a free ride
Waiting for the band to come

[Chrissie:]
Is it me or the drummin'
Or your guitar strummin'
Gotta tell me I'm the only one

[Ringo:]
I wanna sit here, drink beer
I really love you dear but there's a
Rent man knockin' at the door

[Chrissie:]
I got new shoes, new dress
Hair-do, I guess
You don't love me anymore

[Both:]
Don't hang up
Don't hang me up

[Ringo:]
When I'm out there rockin'
I'll be rockin' round the clock and
I will always come home to you

[Chrissie:]
While you're downtown playin'
I'll be uptown strayin' cause
That's what lonely women do

[Both:]
Don't hang up
Don't hang me up

Love is strange, love is sad
But love is everything we have
It's gone today, gone tomorrow
Why is that the way it has to be
For you and me?

Love is strange, love is sad
But love is everything we have
It's gone today, gone tommorow
Why is that the way it has to be
For you and me?

[Ringo:]
I got good news/bad news
The record deal fell through

[Chrissie:]
Sorry, I'll be out of town
Wait dear/not here

[Both:]
Don't hang up
Don't hang me up

Choose Love

Dark clouds in my head disappear
The sky is turning blue, now you're here
We've come a long way, day after day, (we still got a long way to go)
You've got to pay your dues, if you want to sing the blues
But, no matter what you choose, choose love

The Long and Winding Road, is more than a song
Tomorrow Never Knows, What Goes On
To live your life right, you've got to let in the light, and let all the darkness go
You've got to pay your dues, if you want to sing the blues
But, no matter who you choose, choose love

Love, love, love, love, love
Choose Love!

You've got to pay your dues, if you want to sing the blues
But, no matter how you choose
You've got to pay your dues, if you want to sing the blues
But, no matter what you choose, choose love

Choose love, choose love, choose love

(Love is the answer)

Me And You

I won't tell you what to do
No need to tell you what we've been through
I am speaking from my heart tonight
Maybe this time I will get it right

And Darling this is true
It's me and you
I remember when times were bad
You were the best friend I ever had
You were always by my side it's true

There was no place I could hide my blues
Still we made it through
Just me and you
Hold me
It's now or never
Hold me

I'm gonna love you beyond forever
I am speaking from my heart tonight
Maybe this time I will get it right
'Cause darling this is true
It's me and you
It's me and you

Satisfied

Give me all the time you have
Won't be satisfied
I'm happy when you hold my hand
Still not satisfied

And when you tell me it's time to go
I'll ask for a minute more
And if you never leave my side
I won't be satisfied

If I only had one day with you
Won't be satisfied
Even with a year or two
Still not satisfied

I'm not asking for too much
Not a smile or a touch
And if you ever leave my side
I won't be satisfied
I'm not satisfied

I've spent my lifetime looking for someone like you
And when you're laying next to me you made a dream come true

I've spent my lifetime looking for someone like you
And when you're laying next to me you made a dream come true

Here in the morning light
Yes I'm satisfied
If I'm ever out of your sight
I am satisfied

I only want to hear your smile
I want forever not just a while
And if you never leave my side
I'll be satisfied

Yes satisfied
Satisfied
I'll be satisfied

Turnaround

How thick can you be?
Lost in the dreamery
Pick your own reality

How many versions do you need?
How low can you go?
Hear the devil say hello

If you light the fuse, don't you know
Like moby dick...there she blows

[Chorus:]
Somewhere out there you can find it anywhere
Uptown downtown you've got to find the turnaround

Don't tell me what to say
I'm gonna say it anyway
Black and blue or shades of gray
Find the middle s'il vous plait

How do you get to sleep?
With the promises you never keep
The hill you're on is mighty steep
But it's all right

[Chorus]

You draw your own conclusion
Reality or illusion
Stop the chaos and confusion
Get yourself a life transfusion

[Chorus]

Free Drinks

Monday is here and I'm feeling no pain
Easy jet ticket to take me to spain
Captain get your foot down
In two hours I'll be there

Tuesday in love with a girl I don't know
Lost her that night in a disco
I don't care...lovers are everywhere

[Chorus:]
Good day... for nothing at all
Bad day... for taking a fall
Holiday... don't bother to call
Free drinks for one and for all
Free drinks

Wednesday I'm shopping in juan les pins
Dressed to the nines and I'm dancing in cannes
Can you stay with me in saint-tropez?

Thursday a suite at saint paul's colombe d'or
Chagalls on the walls and her dress on the floor
A kiss goodbye... it's time for me to fly

[Chorus]

Friday I sleep... I'm not sure where I am
Saturday, saturday first class on american
To L.A.
But only for one day
Now it's sunday

[Chorus]
