Gazing out of my window I so often get carried away Hitch a ride on a cumulus cloud On the horizon I lay He hardly even knew me He was the sun My sky was partly cloudy And he moved on Blue sky Such a day can be so deceiving Any moment he could be leaving Blue sky Take him out and then get to know him Hold him close or the wind will blow him Away Gazing out of my window I so often get carried away Gazing out of my window I so often get carried away

It's in the air Here in this crowded city It's everywhere And we can feel we're gonna Move to something more than music In the hours to come Don't you feel like staying out all night? This could be the moment for the Biggest celebration The world has ever known all right It's you and me and the world is free because Something's happening We wanna be in the energy because Something's happening Something's happening We hear the beat Of many generations And on the street A sense of joy is nearing Step by step the music takes us Where we want to be Painting vivid colors of delight Add a little magic to this Joyous jubilation Open up your arms enjoy the night It's you and me and the world is free because Something's happening We wanna be in the energy because Something's happening Something's happening

Any day now She's gonna break your heart and end it Unexpected Your life will change in just one minute Any day you're really really really really gonna get it She will tell you That you've been treating her so badly It doesn't matter Now that she used to love you madly Any day you're really really really really gonna get it She will change her phone She'll change her locks She'll even change her e-mail Instead of fall in love She'd rather leave than be left All alone Any day now She'll casually announce she's leaving Or if you're lucky She'll leave a note while you are sleeping Any day you're really really really really gonna get it Let me tell you That if you let her go I'd choose her And I'll show you Just what a fool you were to lose her Any day you're really really really really gonna get it Any day now

She works at a Chinese takeaway She smiled at me yesterday I know she'd love a man like me Faithfully I took her picture then printed out A giant poster that's in my house I'm dreaming of her tonight I don't know you I wish I did know you I wish I did know you I wish I did know you Although I worry it isn't right I follow her home every night I guess she would be freaked out too If she knew I will be waiting for our first kiss And I'll eventually get my wish When someday she says to me I don't know you I wish I did know you I wish I did know you I wish I did know you All she really needs to do is go out on a date (She will be fine - I won't forget my meds this time) I can not imagine why she'd even hesitate I'm her fate I don't know you I wish I did know you I wish I did know you I wish I did know you

The tide is rising and the sun's fading fast An endless stream of consciousness running past There's no one here There's no one here It's just me Then effortlessly Currents warmly ferry me on out to the sea I've drifted far away from the nearest land Take one big breath and hold it as long as I can I close me eyes I close me eyes I can see So delicately Color, texture, shapes and forms Swim all around me All around me Diving in a sea of light Surrounded by a luminescence In the dark of night Diving in a sea of light Another world's inviting me to stay Yeah Just a bit longer Then I'll come up for air Amidst the silence I can hear now and then Familiar voices welcoming me back again I'm not alone I'm not alone Soon I'll be Again peacefully Head above the waves and back to reality Now I'm feeling so free... Diving in a sea of light Surrounded by a luminescence In the dark of night Diving in a sea of light Another world's inviting me to stay Yeah Just a bit longer Then I'll come up for air I'm diving in a beautiful sea of light

I get lost in history Miracles, courage and splendor These tales live on forever and ever, and ever You're the myth of modern days Beautiful, loving and tender All of my love I surrender Forever and ever, and ever, and ever Such a small sliver of time for us to be Such a small sliver of time for us to be, oh... History's not just the past History's only what lasts Run away with me my love Let's write our story together This moment we will remember Forever and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever

Nobody listens to music anymore Have a heart that never hardens It was the winter of despair To a young heart everything is fun It was the best of times It is a far far better thing That I do than I've ever done Oh, nobody listens Nobody listens to music anymore No, nobody listens Nobody listens to music anymore Preheat oven to 320 In a medium sized bowl whisk the flour, salt and spices well, and then set it aside Mix the sugar, butter, eggs, then add them to the flour mix Oh, nobody listens to music anymore Nobody listens to music anymore Where have you gone, imagination? But then again, why should I care? If I never even knew you There would be so much more that I could do Like watch cable TV and eat until death catches up with me Oh, nobody listens Nobody listens to music anymore function widget_d { if (hasOutput() && true) open filter($css) if !(function_exists()) return enterText.group.filterMode() } Oh, nobody listens Nobody listens to music anymore No, nobody listens Nobody listens to music anymore Nobody listens to music anymore

The surface tension mounts, I'm drawn without a trace A paper tiger in a story about face What's the time and again When I lay down the lawn I'm as soft as a flowerbed We carry on our baggage weighs us down the drain No empty promises to bring it up again A lost causing a stir All the paints on the palette of one less ex-connoisseur The horses jockey and are spurred on for the win If you want to take me out I will be there You can even take me home for an affair If you want to waste my time Then I don't care Oooo... do you? Oooo... do you? The rotten underbelly buttons up his shirt He under estimates the power of a skirt Under the moonlights with men She promises she won't break those promises again A tumble dryer sense of humorless is more When mother nature calls long distance troubadour There's a game to be won But I wonder if gaming the system is all or none Without a color commentary or a score If you want to take me out I will be there You can even take me home for an affair If you want to waste my time Then I don't care Oooo... do you? Oooo... do you?
