"AUTOMATIC PILOT"

Soul sister snake
She's no fake
There's no give
It's just take
With soul sister snake

TV Glider's
A pay per view ride
It's a long cool slide
For TV Glider

Automatic Pilot
The revolution's a riot
Automatic Pilot
I'm gonna let you fly it
Right now, right now

Escalator boots
And bamboo shoots
Hey I've got no roots
In my escalator boots

David the whip
He's so hip
He runs a very tight trip
David the whip

Automatic Pilot
The revolution's a riot
Automatic Pilot
I'm gonna let you fly it
Right now, right now

Yuki means snow
Eyes like Bardot
She''s a geisha to go
Yuki means snow

Pablo don't mind
He's a Gingerbread Kind
Left the whole world behind
Now Pablo don't mind

Automatic Pilot
The revolution's a riot
Automatic Pilot
I'm gonna let you fly it
Right now, right now

Automatic Pilot
Automatic Pilot
Fly fly
So fly

"DEAD END ZONE"

I was walking up a blind alley
Not seeing the wide open spaces
Opened my eyes
Caught a surprise
This road leads to
A million places
Down in the subway staion
I heard somebody play a saxophone
Blowing sweet
"Reet petite"
To the echo of my shoes
On the ground
At the dead end zone

I had a one way ticket
To paradise
That I cashed in for
A tangible thrill
When it was over
It was all over
I was left
Holding a sizeable bill
Backstage
Born in a jazzman's
Siutcase
Baby with a bandstand jones
Birdland
The smoke and the band
Started off the roll of my stone
To the dead end zone

There's always good times
To remember
There's mountains of guilt
To forget
Basement dreams
What do they mean?
My vison ain't materialised yet

And back down in the subway staion
I heard somebody play a saxophone
Blowing sweet
"Reet Petite"
To the echo of my shoes
On the ground
At the dead end zone
The dead end zone

===========================

"LESSON LEARNED"

Her momma looked so good
Her daddy worked so hard
They lived in Hollywood
They didn't know one star
She was a spoiled child
She drove the young boys wild
It was a quick success
But she lacked tenderness

The glitter and the sparkle
Of a brand new world
Are enough to fool a sheltered girl
If she's lucky she won't get too burned
Maybe this will be a lesson learned
Might be a lesson learned

She made it in the shade
Show business pantomime
It was the last parade
That she would march in time
Her face was so serene
She's overkill on screen
I hear they pay good cash
For that snuff flick trash

The glitter and the sparkle
Of a brand new world
Are enough to fool a sheltered girl
She wasn't lucky and she got burned
Maybe this will be a lesson learned
Might be a lesson learned

=========================================


"LIKE HEAVEN"

I've told you before
There's nobody else
Can make me feel
So good about myself
You give me something
That sets me free
Ever since love's
Got a hold on me

And all I want to do
Is be close to you
I get high on your love
(on your love)

Don't ever stop
What you're doing to me
Loving you is like heaven
We're climbing the stairway
to ecstasy
Loving you is like heaven

I'm taking my time
I ain't in a hurry
We're gonna make it happen
here tonight
I wanna be with you
It won't be wrong
I'm gonna rock you
All night long

There's no one in the world
Who can love you
Like I, I do
(I do)

Don't ever stop what you're doing to me
Loving you is like heaven
We're climbing the stairway
to ecstasy
Loving you is like heaven

You're my angel
And I love you so
There's nothing in the world
That can change how I feel about you
Always
When I kiss you
There's so much more
Than I've ever felt before
And the feeling's getting stronger
Everyday

There's no one in the world
Who can love you
Like I, I do
(I do)

Don't ever stop what you're doing to me
Loving you is like heaven
We're climbing the stairway
to ecstasy
Loving you is like heaven

=====================================

"MILES AWAY"

In your eyes
I see clouds
and I can't read
your true emotions
The colours are blurred
and mixed so I'm
Tossed in this ocean
On waves of tears

You're miles away
A tear too far
Your'e further away today
Than I can touch any star
A tear too far
You're miles away
You're further away today
And now I wonder where you are


In you arms
I fall in
When a voice inside says
"don't get closer"
(get closer)
In your embrace
I burn
Thrown on a firey passion
Shot down
In flames

You're Miles Away
A tear too far
You're further away today
than I can touch any star
A tear too far
You're miles away
You're further away today
And now I wonder where you are

We'll be together even when apart
(when apart)
'Cos your impression
is now on my heart
(on my heart)
Deep in my soul
From the very start
Love was true

You're Miles away
A tear too far
You're further away today
than I can touch any star
A tear too far
You're miles away
You're further away today
And now I wonder where you are
Miles away
Out of sight
out of mind
In my heart...
forever


============================


"RADIO"

Do I listen to the radio?
You know I listen to the radio
AM and FM
Everywere I go
It could be a symphony
Or a simple melody
It's good enough
High brow or low

There's airwaves in Africa
China and America
Music is a language everyone knows
Everybody knows

There's radio
All around the world
Radio
All around the world
Radio
All around the world

Rock, or jazz,
Or country and funk,
Pop music and honky tonk
In hotel rooms,
Everywhere I go

In Beirut and old Hong Kong
Gay Paree and Hai Phong
Music is a language everyone knows
Everybody knows

There's radio
All around the world
Radio
All around the world
Radio
All around the world

And it's always on the air
You just tune in to what you want to hear
Yeah it's always on the air
You just tune in a little atmosphere
What do you want to hear?

They've got radio
All around the world
Radio
All around the world
Radio
All around the world

Radio radio radio
Radio radio radio
All around the world
All the world was rocking
Going round and round
and round and round
and round and round
Oh yeah!

"SANDS OF TIME"

Whoever gave Marilyn
her overdose
Killed a whole generation
It happened that as soon
as her flame was snuffed out
Cult figure deification

It's so sad
the brightest star we ever had
So unfair
In a hundred years
no one will care

Sands of time
sweet dreams along the way
put on your masquarade
for the passing parade
Sands of time
like I used to hear you say
Better make it soon
They're walking on the moon

Jet age Jesus
and cereal box
Cartoon commercial religeon
It's all in vain
the whole world's gone insane
from watching it on television

What a joke
I try not to laugh
but I choke
What a bang!
When the gravity fails
you just hang

Sands of time
sweet dreams along the way
put on your masquarade
for the passing parade
Sands of time
like I used to hear you say
Better make it soon
They're walking on the moon

La la la

What a joke
I try not to laugh
but I choke
What a bang!
When the gravity fails
you just hang

Sands of time
sweet dreams along the way
put on your masquarade
for the passing parade
Sands of time
like I used to hear you say
Better make it soon
They're walking on the moon
Sands of time
sweet dreams along the way
put on your masquarade
for the passing parade
Sands of time
like I used to hear you say
Better make it soon
We're walking on the moon

"TNTeenager"

She's a jukebox queen and she's seventeen
Moving to the song and singing along
She's got a bubblegum cough
And her braces just came off

Little jailbait flirt
In her mini-skirt
She's the top of the class
With a heart shaped ass
You should see her bend
When she drops her ballpoint pen
Woooh!

TNTeenager
This rock 'n roller's
Gonna blow a fuse
TNTeenager
Can't control it
Dancing to the rythm and blues

Her hair is long so she can't go wrong
Shaking those hips and pouting those lips
When she gets them out
The boy's just got to shout!

TNTeenager
This rock 'n roller's
Gonna blow a fuse
TNTeenager
Can't control it
Dancing to the rythm and blues

TNTeenager
TNTeenager
Woooh!

==================================

"WAIT FOR IT"

I've been waiting for my ship to come in
I've been wondering lately
How you've been
Hoping for a bit of news
But I never could depend on you
To show me the way
Back to where we begin
I've been drowning on a bitter sea
Coming up as empty as I'll ever be
Nothing there to ease the fall
When I hear the curtain call
I draw back the blinds
On my fantasies

Sometimes you need it
Sometimes you don't
Sometimes you get it
Sometimes you know you won't
Sometimes when you need it
You gotta wait for it (wait for it)
You gotta wait for it (wait for it)
You gotta fight for what you need

There's a light in the distance
Yeah I see it every night
It breaks through the shadows
And it shines so bright
Everyone's staring at it
Nobody caring that
It's just an illusion
No salvation in sight

Sometimes you need it
Sometimes you don't
Sometimes you get it
Sometimes you know you won't
You gotta wait for it (wait for it)
You gotta wait for it (wait for it)
You gotta fight for what you need

You go to hang on
Sometimes you got to hold on
For what you need
If it seems it's slipping on just out of reach
You can get it if you try


====================================

"WHEN THE NIGHT COMES"

I know Kyoto well as a foreigner can
No gaijin really knows japan
We can walk the streets
take in the view
The Kamogawa flows true
I'd love to show it to you

When the night comes
I'm going to stand there
in the moonlight with you
We're going to sleep
under the dark sky too
Stars a rising
When the night comes

The streets of Paris
they've got something
I love the atmosphere
in spring
Soul kissing by the stony
banks of the Seine
Left Bank and perfect rain
I want to go there again

When the night comes
I'm going to stand there
in the moonlight with you
We're going to sleep
under the dark sky too
Stars a rising
When the night comes

Everybody knows
it's better in the midnight hour
Wilson Pickett says it's better
in the midnight hour

When the night comes
I'm going to stand there
in the moonlight with you
We're going to sleep
under the dark sky too
Stars a rising
When the night comes

I want to be there
when the night comes
I want to be there
with you
when the night comes


============================================


"WHITE HEAT"

I was looking for something
But I couldn't find the one thing
Guess I've been cheated
By the things I've done
I want the sound sensation
Maybe it's rejuvenation
Could be all I want is just a little fun

You know I need the music to move me
wash in waves over me
And when I turn it up and it moves me
I feel saved
Set free

I'm on fire
Standing in the white heat
yeah I'm wired
For burning on a backbeat
I'm on fire
Standing in the white heat

I'm not fooled by a few tricks
I've got to hear a sound that really clicks
When I do I give it all I've got
It takes a whole lot of passion and
A flair for fashion
If you want to get right to the top
There's no substitute for emotion
To make it appealing
When I hear that emotion
It gets me feeling

I'm on fire
Standing in the white heat
yeah I'm wired
For burning on a backbeat
I'm on fire
Standing in the white heat

There's no substitute for emotion
To make it appealing
WhenI hear that emotion
It gets me feeling

I'm on fire
Standing in the white heat
yeah I'm wired
For burning on a backbeat
I'm on fire
Standing in the white heat

Fire, fire, fire, fire

==============================

"YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT"


You Don't Know What You Want
Tell me I'll give it to you
You Don't Know What You Want
And I don't know what to do

Baby come on and tell me
If what our friends are saying is true
Why don't you just walk away
It seems the only thing left to do
Why don't you talk to me?

You Don't Know What You Want
Tell me I'll give it to you
You Don't Know What You Want
And I don't know what to do

Crying your eyes out
Tears are falling every place
I still can't figure out
That strange look on your face
Why don't you talk to me?
Baby you don't know what you want

Baby come on and tell me
If what our friends are saying is true
Why don't you just walk away
It seems the only thing left to do
Why don't you talk to me?

Why don't you talk to me?
Why don't you talk to me?

==================================


"ACTION TO REACTION"

When I feel the heat now, baby
Of you next to me
You've got me wrapped up
My body's beat
Into ecstasy
We've got the right combination
Always a sweet sensation

Action to reaction
What makes your fire burn ?
Action to reaction
Every where we go
Every way we turn

When we're rockin' hard in rhythm
(we're rockin' hard)
Or you move me slow
I wanna be right there
With you baby
(I wanna be there)
Whenever you want some more
My pounding heart must agree
'Bout the force of our energy

Action to reaction
What makes your fire burn ?
Action to reaction
Every where we go
Every place I turn

Action to reaction
What makes your fire burn....
(Repeat chorus)

Action
Reaction
I like it like you lick it
You lick it like I like it
You lick it like I like it
I like it like you lick it

==============================

"TOUCH TOO MUCH (Chinn & Chapman)"


Well, you got me shakin from my head
To the bottom of my toes
Shakin all over
Like nobody knows
With your head on my shoulder
And your hand on my knee
Loosen up baby now
Mama can't see
All I can do is hold on tight
Make it together all through the night
Mama don't mind
What mama don't see
It's getting so hot that you're burning me

I wanna touch too much of your tender love
A touch too much of your good good lovin'
Just a touch too much of your tender love
Now I'm runnin a fever of 90 above

Well, it ain't east to figure out
The way I feel
Somehow honey it don't seem real
You lit the fire of my desire
Now the flames of love
Burn higher and higher
Every little word you say to me
Make my backbone shiver
I get weak at the knee
Oh my my you turn me on
How can anyone say
That it won't last long

I wanna touch too much of your tender love
A touch too much of your good good lovin'
Just a touch too much of your tender love
Now I'm runnin a fever of 90 above

Ahh.. come on now honey
Let's slow it all down
Just a little
I wanna feel your touch
Cos honey
You know you make me shake
And I just want you
To loosen up a little bit for me
Awww honey...
You know what I want !!

I, I, I, I,

I wanna touch too much of your tender love
A touch too much of your good good lovin'
Just a touch too much of your tender love
Now I'm runnin a fever of 90 above

I wanna touch too much of your tender love
A touch too much of your good good lovin'
Just a touch too much of your tender love
Now I'm runnin a fever of 90 above
