Lyrics

Don't Let Me Fall Alone

Written By: Nik Beat and Mimi Baron

Sun's in my Eyes
Crossing the Bridge Anjou
Take a deep breath
Can't wait to rendezvous

Driving on the silky road
Chasing horizons for you
Changing gears
Always in the wrong year

Don't Let me fall alone
don't let me fall 2X

Sun hangs so low
Moon takes her place
Traffic seems to move so slow

Will you be there searchin'
Always searching for me
Like a sailor yearning for the sea

Don't Let me Fall alone
Don't let me fall
Don't let me 3X

Waiting for the show to show

Still at the bar
My feet can't touch the floor
I feel like such a whore
Why do I believe in you?
I feel like such a fool

Strange fears
Forget about the red, red rose

Don't let me fall alone
don't let me Fall

Love but Don't Fall

Written By: Nik Beat

Living in a sweet world shattered by love
see the future nothing but strife
laughing at yourself as you realize
you've dug the hole in which you lie

Broken by booze
Driven by lies
You wanna go off and die
You can't face up to another day
You look in the mirror and turn away

Love but don't fall (2X)

Every night you suffer from this disease
The Tyranny of love is what you feel
You cannot live without Her now
It hurts so bad
You see it now

You fell, the time is gone
Before you laugh
Before you take your life
You wanna live
You wanna lie
And every night
you ask yourself why?

Love but don't fall(3X)

in love in love in love in love(4X)

Broken by booze
Driven by lies
you wanna go off and die
You cannot get this dread disease
But it's coming at you if you please
and every day is another lie
that you cannot live
wihtout this lie
and you say
Love but don't fall(2X)
in love in love in love in love...

Crying Over Creation

Written By: Nik Beat

Looking at this sweet world in my disguise
Looking at the sun, the sea and the sky
Looking at the world God made in six days
Living under the flag of the U.S.A.

Well, I'm crying over creation
I'm weeping over this nation (2X)

Seeing this dream that I used to have
Seeing God's children turn from good to bad
Seeing them killing each other full of hate
With guns that God never made

I'm crying over creation
I'm weeping over this nation (2X)

Well, I'm down and down and down (3X)

"Hut two hut two three four! (3X)
Off we go to war!"

Look at them stewing in their own bile and pain
Look at them, well I've got to look away
The peolpe My Father created
The people I came to save
Are going up in smoke, the U.S.A.

Well, I'm crying over creation
I'm weeping over this nation (4X)

I'm down and down and down (4X)
