Lyrics

Stand Up And Fight

Written By: David A Saylor

When you are young you play the game
you learn the rules that lie before you
you trust the ones who say it's ok

The power to reveal the truth
to lose the innocence of youth
is something you must learn to do
this time it's up to you

Stand up and fight
for what you believe in
gotta tell the world just how you feel

Stand up and fight
no point in dreaming
take one step out of line
and tell the whole world

The many obstacles you see
the endless walls that form around you
a pride that runs too deep

You got to keep your spirits high
no longer hide the scars within
you got to spread your wings and fly
this time it's up to you

Now that black is white and your dream's in sight
you got control of your own life
Now you've said your peace and the pain has ceased
you got control...

Red Light

Written By: David A Saylor

I said my heart was immune to you
Who was to know that I'd be taken for a fool
I always said you weren't the one for me

Who'd have known
This heart of stone would break
On the darkest night
I'd have to lie awake

See the red light in your eyes
magic bound and hypnotised
I need the heat to keep my soul alive

Feel the rain drops on my face
Warning signs that leave no trace
I need the heat to keep my soul alive
To keep my soul alive

I've crossed beyond the line one thousand times
made sure the bridge was safe before I took a side
to slip and fall would make me realise

On the darkest night I'd have to lie awake

Miracle Of Love

Written By: David A Saylor

Holding on to memories in my mind
how could I have known I was so blind?
when no ones there to catch you when you fall
it's only what you've chosen after all

Is it wrong to tell you what is on mind?
Do you know of the pain in the heart of mine?
It's a miracle, miracle of love

Is it wrong to tell you what is on mind?
Do you know of the pain in the heart of mine?
It's a miracle, miracle of love

Darkened towns, footsteps in the wind
Love is there you feel it deep within
Pretty faces shadows of the night
It's time to move your running out of time

Pretty faces shadows of the night
It's time to move we're running out of time

There could be no one but you
I cant live without your love
There can be no one but you tonight

There could be no one but you
I can't live without your love

Burning Desire

Written By: David A Saylor

Your life's a mystery
my eyes see only you
still you don't notice

Don't make excuses
my love is plain to see
why don't you read it

You're so blind
you're on my mind

Desire is burning
from deep down inside me
it will to the bitter end
You know that I love you
its hard to forget you
I do hope you understand

Behind your teardrops
I see a misty side
but not too clearly

You hide your feelings
I wear mine on my sleeve
but you can't see it

I'd like to tell you what's on my mind
no one could ever change my life
oh oh oh oh .............

Strange World

Written By: David A Saylor

When I watch the sun go down tonight
I know I will shed a tear
feel the tension on the border lines
I see the red clouds drawing near

Oh we're living in a strange world
Always under a shadow
Oh with nowhere to hide
Oh we live in a strange world

Moving closer to the blinding light
TV said it wont be long No....
Men at arms are told to shoot on sight
No time to cry we must be strong
.
Oh we're living in a strange world
Always under a shadow
Oh with nowhere to hide inside

Oh

Too late to run too late to hide
No second chance to take this time
Too late to run too late to hide
When will we learn?

Hannah

Written By: David A Saylor

Before your eyes, your teardrop eyes
I see the fear you hide reflecting pain inside you
Through every touch, through every kiss
I Cant stand the thought of being lost not beside you

Some people say that I'm prone to panic
Some people say that I'm all lies
Oh oh you've got to come back and stay

Hannah don't go (I know you're leaving )
Couldn't stand the thought of you being alone
Hannah don't go, call on me girl
Hannah don't go (cant stand the feeling )
its the thought of you out on your own
Hannah. living alone

Before your eyes, your teardrop eyes
I see the fear you hide reflecting pain inside you
Through every touch, through every kiss
I cant stand the thought of being lost not beside you

You're taking your chance over and over again
You're moving too slow oh oh
You're taking your chance again
Over and over and over again

Call on me girl

If you ever come knocking there'll be somebody home
Couldn't stand the thought of you being alone
If ever come knocking if you're ever alone call on me girl...
Living alone....

All I Can Give You

Written By: David A Saylor

Hold on.........

You never thought to ask so now I'm telling you
the girl is all I knew, the girl is all I knewL
Like dancing hearts that flickered then so bright
to disappear into the night

Now I know
This lonely man looks through his tears
this lonely man can only hear

Hold on to my love
that's all I can give you
hold on to my love yeah......

Hold on to my love
that's all I can give you
hold on to my love yeah......

A calm desire is what he needs to rest his mind
they say that love is blind
they say that love is blind
The girl she smiles but only cast she's in the play
then she turns to walk away

Now I know....hear..............

Secret Lover

Written By: David A Saylor

How can it be that I want you so
knowing you're impossible to reach
Satellite and picture shows
I share you with the world but know one knows.

I am your secret lover
and I must keep it under cover
I'm not like all the others
I must keep it under cover
You can't Imagine how I feel tonight

Haven't you got some time to spare
I've got so much time I'd like to share
In my dream you arrive in a long black car
You walk into my life and break my heart

There's nothing that I'd rather do than be with you

I am your secret lover
and I must keep it under cover
I'm not like all the others
I must keep it under cover

I am your secret lover
and I must keep it under cover
I'm not like all the others
I must keep it under cover
You can't Imagine how I feel tonight

Man On The Other Side

Written By: David A Saylor

It's the spirit of the people its the way of the tribe
gotta run for cover must protect to survive

Can you see that picture?
painted cheerful and so bright, so bright
Oh oh.. can you see your future?
we've got agreements on both sides so it's all right

Who is the man on the other side?
with dreams of another kind
Is he really trying to keep us safe and sound?

Who is the man on the other side?
Will we ever see his face?
Does he realise our fate lies in his hands?

Have you had that feeling?
That the fears you hide the most might come true?
and when your head is reeling

Its the spirit of the people its the way of the tribe
gotta run for cover must protect to survive oh oh ,,,
its the spirit of the people its the way of the tribe
gotta run for cover must protect to survive oh oh .....
must protect and survive

Giving It All Away

Written By: David A Saylor

If you'd only recognise me
When I'm wearing my disguise
If you'd only understand
where I'm coming from

I can't pick and choose for you
You're the one with all to lose
Please wake up and turn your life around

Cause you're

Giving it all away
You're the only one to make it happen
Throwing it all away

When an image suddenly appears
Right before your eyes
and the tears you cry
never hit the ground
