Lyrics

The Song 2012

Do you see the lid that’s lifting?
Do you feel the mood that’s shifting?
So much anger underneath
Now the riots on our streets
Greedy banks have lined their pockets
The result is catastrophic
Governments spin their lies
Don’t they think we realise?
The media apportion blame
Adding fuel to the flame
Trust at an all-time low
Pressure cooker set to blow

What do you believe in as the lines are drawn?
Guess you must decide upon which side you’re on

Sing , sing the song calling you across the earth
Universal anthem we all recognise from birth
As you live your life in tune its melody takes flight
As we sing together something shifts… into the light

Time to lay aside division
Respecting our diverse religions
No place for hate or selfish greed
No matter what your race or creed
Friend and neighbour hearts unite
Standing up for what is right
Fathers, brothers, husbands, sons
Arm in arm, no need for guns
Believing in the greater good
Guardians of our neighbourhoods
Protecting what we value most
This song is love; this song is hope

Sing , sing the song calling you across the earth
Universal anthem we all recognise from birth
As you live your life in tune its melody takes flight
As we sing together something shifts… into the light

Seers across history’s line;
Said 2012 was a defining time;
The stars converge and are realigned
To change the world we know

Sing , sing the song calling you across the earth
Universal anthem we all recognise from birth
As you live your life in tune its melody takes flight
As we sing together something shifts… into the light

Fallen for You

Walking in an unfamiliar place Whoa-o-oh
Don’t recognise this silly smile that’s fixed upon my face
Like to be the one who always feels in control
Like to be the one to take the dominant role
Until now; until you

You pulled me in on invisible threads
They wrapped around my heart like a gossamer web
Every little thing that you say and do leaves me helpless
Fallen for you
Fallen for you
I’ve fallen, fallen for you

Something in me wants to run away Whoa-o-oh
Another part of me is oh so desperate to stay
Don’t want you to think I’m any less of a man
Don’t want you to think I’m eating out of your hand
But I am; I am

Always played the game by certain rules
Many call me heartless or a hopeless fool
Maybe this is judgement from above
Or maybe I have never been in love

You pulled me in on invisible threads
They wrapped around my heart like a gossamer web
Every little thing that you say and do leaves me helpless
Fallen for you
Fallen for you
I’ve fallen, fallen for you

You pulled me in on invisible threads
They wrapped around my heart like a gossamer web
Every little thing that you say and do leaves me helpless!
Fallen for you
Fallen for you
I’ve fallen, fallen for you

You’re The One

Think I’ve found what love is, love is
Like you see in the Hollywood movies
Think I’ve found my soul to soul connection
Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
One night stands can offer temporary gratification
We all know it’s not love, but just a pale imitation
I’ve been wanting something much more meaningful
Something to last; to stand the test of time

And you oo-oo-oo-oo, you are the one
(You are the one that I’ve been looking for)
You oo-oo-oo-oo, you are the one
(You are the one my future’s waiting for)
You are the one; the end of my quest
Time to take off my bullet-proof vest
Ready to take the biggest leap of all
Wanna tie the knot with you for evermore

I get to feeling restless, restless
When I know it’s soon ‘til I see you
Then you leave me breathless, breathless
Just one touch and I’m in a spin
Something ‘bout you makes me want to dance on sunshine
Something ‘bout you makes me feel I’ve nothing to hide
Something ‘bout you brings about the best in me
Want this to last; to stand the test of time

Baby, oh baby, answer me do, answer me do
I’m half crazy; so in love with you, so in love with you
So in love with

You oo-oo-oo-oo; you are the one
(You are the one that I’ve been looking for)
You oo-oo-oo-oo, you are the one
(You are the one my future’s waiting for)
You are the one; the end of my quest
Time to take off my bullet-proof vest
Ready to take the biggest leap of all
Wanna tie the knot with you for evermore
Want tie the knot with you for evermore
Will you tie the knot with me for evermore?

Still a Chance

When will this heartache end?
The fractures in my soul will they ever mend?
When will this pain subside?
Will anything feel normal on the other side?
How did it come to this?
What started as such togetherness
Still living side by side
But you’ve got that distant look in your eye

Tell me have I lost you now?
Can we ever turn back time?
I’m asking for a sign
Can we kindle love again, or is it chasing fantasy?
Give me hope; I so want to believe
That there is still a chance for you and me

When did we let them go?
The dreams we wrote together so long ago
Did we forget to try?
Or was it that we weren’t prepared to compromise?
How did we end up here?
Standing in this river of tears
I think we lost our way
It’s just I can’t remember on which day

Tell me have I lost you now?
Can we ever turn back time?
I’m asking for a sign
Can we kindle love again, or is it chasing fantasy?
Give me hope; I so want to believe
That there is still a chance for you and me

Tell me have I lost you now?
Can we ever turn back time?
I’m asking for a sign
Can we kindle love again, or is it chasing fantasy?
Give me hope; I so want to believe
That there is still a chance for you and me

You’ve Got Friends

Know you’re feeling kinda blue
It is easy to see when I’m looking at you
The corners of your mouth are turned down
And you’ve taken to wearing a perpetual frown

Your girlfriend dumped you; what’s to say?
Sorry that you find it hard to face each day
Easier to stay in your bed
Pulling the covers right over your head

So hey boy what you doing today?
Your friends and I are coming round, I hope that’s OK
We’re taking you out and heading down the beach
Enjoy sun on our skin and the surf beneath our feet
Just for today leave your troubles behind
Just for today, and all the things on your mind
Just for today let’s kick back and relax
Because you’re not alone
You’ve got friends

We’ll spread a blanket on the sand
Stare up at the sky with a beer in our hand
Share a little banter, nothing too profound
Then you’ll be glad you decided to come

So hey boy what you doing today?
Your friends and I are coming round, I hope that’s OK
We’re taking you out and heading down the beach
Enjoy sun on our skin and the surf beneath our feet
Just for today leave your troubles behind
Just for today, and all the things on your mind
Just for today let’s kick back and relax
Because you’re not alone
You’ve got friends

Everyone has times they feel the sky is falling in
We all need help to see a different view
That’s when you
Need best friends who
Will try to pull you through…

So hey boy what you doing today?
Your friends and I are coming round, I hope that’s OK
We’re taking you out and heading down the beach
Enjoy sun on our skin and the surf beneath our feet
Just for today leave your troubles behind
Just for today, and all the things on your mind
Just for today let’s kick back and relax
Because you’re not alone
You’ve got friends

Bright Lights

Just like breathing
You’re something my body cannot live without
I must be slipping
The way that you move it turns me upside down
(Yeah-e-eah)
Wasn’t looking, wasn’t lost ‘til I found you
(Oh-o-oh Oh-o-o-oh)
I’m heading up; you’re getting down the way you move
And the world fades from sight
As we spark collide and burst into the night

You are you are a shooting star
Irresistible your magnetic pull
Tonight we’re bright lights in the dark
Reaching critical; let’s make it physical

Turn the lights down
This kind or rhythm doesn’t need a crowd
Feel the beat now
Calling us closer as the walls come down
(Yeah-e-eah)
Wasn’t looking, wasn’t lost ‘til I found you
(Oh-o-oh Oh-o-o-oh)
I’m heading up; you’re getting down the way you move
And the world fades from sight
As we spark collide and burst into the night

You are you are a shooting star
Irresistible your magnetic pull
Tonight we’re bright lights in the dark
Reaching critical; let’s make it physical

It’s just the start
You give this world a reason
Captivate my heart
Don’t give up
‘Cos tonight we’ve found a miracle
As we spark collide and burst into the night

You are you are a shooting star
Irresistible your magnetic pull
Tonight we’re bright lights in the dark
Reaching critical; let’s make it physical
