Lyrics

Smile Like A Sunset

Written By: The Fixators

Here we are looking out towards the sea
With the sun setting down over me
Look to you, you’re bright as bright can be
With your smile like a sunset, a dream

So days are turning lives are learning wait for me
As the doves fly across to the sea
And so we’re just holding hands just you wait and I’ll see
As they come dressed in all kinds of white

So the sun has now hid below the sea
And the stars are coming out to be seen
Say to me what a world this could be
Still you smile like a sunset a dream

So days are turning lives are learning wait for me
As the doves fly across to the sea
And so we’re just holding hands just you wait and I’ll see
As they come dressed in all kinds of white

On My Mind

Written By: The Fixators

Well the lights go dim and we’re sitting backstage what an atmosphere,
Wish you could be here, oh tick tock round the clock here we are lets go
Looking outside and out the corner of my eye I see you standing near there,
Oh it’s a site to see yeah, oh this is my talk no one listen

What a night
I saw you there
I didn't mean
To go that quickly

What a night I saw you there
You act as though you really cared
It didn't seem like much,
Now you’re on my mind now, here we are let’s go

Oh sitting backwards looking forwards when did you leave?
Or where have I been? Oh time is moving and here I'm standing
With these blood shot eyes that I couldn't even hide all these looks misjudging,
Oh my hearts stopped pumping now sitting forwards looking backwards

What a night
I saw you there
I didn't mean
To go that quickly

What a night I saw you there
You act as though you really cared
It didn't seem like much,
Now you’re on my mind now, here we are let’s go

Wide Awake

Written By: The Fixators

The city’s breaking down with a boat attack
Looking at the docks and they’re looking quite intact
The innocence is there, the guilt is not, what a day

So I'm walking down the hill of the serpentine
Didn't realise that I'm looking blind
Till suddenly appears this grey old man in a suit

He said are you breaking down, don’t reply
And if you’re thinking of, don’t reply
And don’t you realise that your one track mind it isn't wide awake
Wide awake

So the sun is now setting on the eastern side
The boats are now drifting though ones in suicide
I'm thinking to myself is this right, wide awake

So I'm running to this man in the grey old suit
Didn't ask a thing but he told me what to do
So when I walked away I was so confused, not awake

He said are you breaking down, don’t reply
And if you’re thinking of, don’t reply
And don’t you realise that your one track mind it isn't wide awake
Wide awake

San Francisco

Written By: The Fixators

Tonight’s the night you’ll have your last fandango
You've sold yourself to the evening burlesque show
Why did you fall
You didn't need to be small
Until you got this call to leave what you did know

Today’s the day you leave for San Francisco
You've walked away and to the night you will find
There’s no more piece of mind
No idea on what you’ll find
Why do you have to go
Don’t go please don’t go

In San Fran-cis in San Francisco
Where would I find where would I find you
I want to hold your hand
Kiss those lips like no one can
I want to be your man
In San Francisco

Lighthouse

Written By: The Fixators

There was a girl a golden girl who dreamed of love and all its beauty
She ran away, left a note, and locked the door she had no fear
None at all

There was a man a charming man he had a way like no other
Until one day on his way he noticed her on the side walk
Then he spoke and asked her for her name and asked here where she’s heading to today
They fell in love and they ran away they had no fear in where they’d stay

Let’s drive for miles
We’ll reach the ocean
And when the night falls, we’ll wait for sunrise
So when the day breaks
After nightfall
We’ll walk for miles
We’ll find a lighthouse, we’ll find a lighthouse

Your Call

Written By: The Fixators

So just hold tight, there are angles in your eyes
So just hold tight and we’ll find it in the end

So here I am now
I'm lost, I'm sitting by your thoughts
They’re gone, I don’t know where now
And here I am now
I'm lost, I'm waiting on your call
Tonight

So just hold tight, lets find a passage, to where we were
And so just hold tight, cause it could be a joyful ride

So here I am now
I'm lost, I'm sitting by your thoughts
They’re gone, I don’t know where now
And here I am now
I'm lost, I'm waiting on your call
Tonight

Don’t go
Don’t go
Please don’t go

So here I am now
I'm lost, I'm sitting by your thoughts
They’re gone, I don’t know where now
And here I am now
I'm lost, I'm waiting on your call
Tonight

Come home
Come home
Please come home

So just hold tight
There are angels
In your eyes
