Track Name: Anybody
Way back then when we were young
We dreamed of what we might become
But everybody said it was impossible
We thought our lives were pre-ordained
The sun would freeze before we changed
We always said that nothing was impossible

I could be you
You could be me
We could be anybody
Why can’t we see
We could be
Anybody that we want to be

But every day some other sorrow
Breaks your back until tomorrow
Shows the future never is impossible
If you don't dare to live your dreams
You may as well not dream at all
For something tells me nothing is impossible

I could be you
You could be me
We could be anybody
Why can’t we see
We could be
Anybody that we want to be
Track Name: Lovers Say Goodbye
I saw you in Kensal Rise
Sun reflected in your eyes
You ignored me
You said you never saw me
But you lied
On every station platform
Lovers say goodbye

I called you on the telephone
Your sister said you were not home
You deceived me
You said you wouldn't leave me
But you lied
On every station platform
Lovers say goodbye

I rememeber the look that you gave me
Drowning in your eyes I thought you could save me
Till everything went a little bit hazy
You walked away from me
You wouldn't stay with me
You walked away from me

I saw you on Oxford Street
Eyes resigned down to your feet
It's a mystery
How all I am is history
It's a crime
On every station platform
Lovers say goodbye
On every station platform
Lovers say goodbye
On every station platform
Lovers say goodbye
Track Name: I'm Living For The Weekend
I'm living for the weekend
I'm living for the weekend
When the sun always shines
And I've got the time
To be with the one I love
I'm living for the weekend ...

Life's driving me round the bend
Life's driving me round the bend
It's the incessant grind
Of the nine to five
I want to be with my friends
I'm living for the weekend ...

I'm going to lie in until it's time to go to bed
Might do nothing all day long or maybe something else instead
I'm not making plans I'm seeing what occurs to me
I'm feeling free

I'm living for the weekend
I'm living for the weekend
Work has no meaning
Compared to the feeling
You get when you're set free
I'm living for the weekend (I love Saturday and Sunday) ...
Track Name: Does Madonna Dream?
I’m in a dream
I’m with James Dean
We’re walking into Woolworths
Walking into Woolworths on a Monday afternoon
And there right by the pick’n’mix
Was Hendrix playing fancy tricks
Jim found his head and went to pay
The checkout girl was Doris Day

Does Madonna dream of ordinary people
Ordinary people like me ?

I’m on a train
With Kurt Cobain
We’re pulling into Lime Street
Pulling into Lime Street on a Monday afternoon
And sitting on the platform there
Was Johnny Cash and Fred Astaire
I said where’s Ginger Rogers mate
She’s missed the train she’s always late

Does Madonna dream of ordinary people
Ordinary people like me ?

Does Angelina dream ... ?

I’m on death row
With Miss Monroe
And the president’s beside me
He’s sitting right beside me on a Monday afternoon
She said my man will save the day
He’s A.O.K he’s J.F.K
Then she bent down to kiss my head
I woke up fell out of bed

Does Madonna dream of ordinary people
Ordinary people like me ?



Does David Beckham dream, does Katie Perry dream,
does Queen Latifah dream, do they dream ?
Does Richard Branson dream, does Gordon Ramsey dream,
does Paris Hilton dream do they dream ?
Does Neil Armstrong dream, does Warren Buffet dream,
does David Bowie dream, do they dream ?
Does Dolly Parton dream, does Morgan Freeman dream,
does Kelly Rowland dream, do they dream ?
Does Justin Bieber dream, does Gwyneth Paltrow dream,
does Paul McCartney dream, do they dream ?
Does Rupert Murdoch dream, does Tracey Emin dream,
does Whoopi Goldeberg dream, do they dream ?
Does Halle Berry dream, does Eddie Murphy dream,
does Yoko Ono dream of ordinary people like me ...?
Track Name: Missing You
So many days I've woken up
Forgotten you're no longer here
Till drinking from my coffee cup
I realize you're nowhere near
Then something elemental comes
Like standing in the summer rain
My emotions drown me out
My breath is caught, I'm lost again

Missing you is all that I can do

It's like you walked out of the room
Left your coat upon the chair
I hear your footsteps in the hall
I turn to look there's no-one there
On Sunday night the telephone
will ring and I will think it's you
But as I reach to pick it up
The feeling hits me like it's new

Missing you is all that I can do

My son
Looks up at me
And I become
You looking down at me
The way things used to be
The way life used to be

Missing you is all that I can do ...
Track Name: Confused As God
What defines you ?
What holds you in ?
When you want to let go
Spread and stream and filter out ?
What holds you in ?
When you want to let go
What holds you in ?

Whisper sweet nothing
I know the look I sometimes get
I say nothing
It’s the look I give I sometimes get

What destroys you ?
What makes you cry ?
When you want to forget
What drags you down and won’t let go ?
What makes you cry ?
When you want to forget
What makes you cry ?

Chorus

You say it’s all been said
You say it’s all been done
I say that can’t be true
It’s only just begun
But how can I begin
When all I feel is shot
Now I am so confused
I am confused as God

Chorus
Track Name: Dumbstruck
I took the briefest look, I stole the merest glance
I saw a distant hope, I felt the slightest chance
It was the longest odds, I had a hopeless shot
Somewhere deep inside I'd say a blue moon day is all I've got

Dumbstruck - Silenced myself again
Dumbstruck - Wishing away again
Dumbstruck - Stuck on you

What's worst is what I dared not say, in hope the feeling went away
But from the start I knew I'd lost; my twisted heart was double crossed
The perfect words I never said reverberate inside my head
Until my thoughts rushed up to meet the silent echo of defeat

Dumbstruck - Silenced myself again
Dumbstruck - Wishing away again
Dumbstruck - Stuck on you

The pattern I find
As I slowly unwind
Is no more a surprise
Than the dawn of the day
Whatever the dream
It was not what it seemed
Now my memory screams
I have nothing to say
My Imagination ran away
My Imagination ran away
My Imagination ran away

Dumbstruck ...
Track Name: Someone's Ideal
At bus stops and toy shops I’d meet you and we’d laugh
The world was an oyster we shared in our bath
You know me I'm the boy with those dark brown eyes
You know me I'm the boy with those dark brown eyes

The world isn't round it's shaped like your head dear
Your heart like the moon is full till it disappears
I know you you're the girl with those dark brown eyes
I know you you're the girl with those dark brown eyes

With me you could be someone's ideal
Without me you are nothing but real
With me you could be someone's ideal
Without me you are nothing, nothing but real

We follow blind where we are led
My heart like your head has fallen over the edge
Why won't you kiss the boy with those dark brown eyes
Why won't you kiss the boy with those dark brown eyes
Track Name: Tense Conversation
I thought she could have been on the train that crashed
But she wasn’t and I know because like a fool I phoned her up
I had nothing to say I hadn’t said a thousand times

Oh my god what a tense conversation

She would say she loved me qualified with the word tonight
Paranoid as usual I could not take it for the good that it was
So I brought up the subject one Saturday night

Oh my god what a tense conversation

It’s time time time time that we’re losing
It’s time time time time that we’re losing
But day after day I say ...

She doesn’t want anybody but all I can see is that she doesn’t want me
If she wanted she wanted she wanted . . .
If she wanted anyone it ought to be me
If she wanted anyone that man should be me
If she wanted anyone maybe I would be lucky like Kylie so lucky

As all things must pass like George Harrison said
But only as the eye sees, inside it went on and on
In thirty nine years or more it will be the same
Nothing will have changed

Oh my god what a tense conversation

I call her she answers I’m tongue tied and foolish
A tense conversation is all I can hold
But she’s far away, I’m just a memory
And our love is simply a story I’ve told
Track Name: My Friend Alison Said
My friend Alison said
It’s all in your head
It is not real
I’d so like to agree
But still I can’t see
How should I feel

When the one you love’s in love with another one
And every dream you've ever had is gone

I just walked through the door
Can’t say what I saw
It is not real
I don’t want to believe
I think I should leave
But how should I feel

When the one you love’s in love with another one
And every dream you've ever had is gone

All they’ve done is sleep together
Love may not have taken place
Resist the urge to be too clever
Turn away from their embrace

My friend Alison said
It’s all in your head
It is not real
I’d so like to agree
But still I can’t see

When the one you love’s in love with another one
And every dream you've ever had is gone
When the one you love’s in love with another one
And every dream you've ever had is gone
Track Name: Until The Shadow Falls On Me
I used to think I had the words
To shape the world in which we live
I’m not that person anymore
I haven’t got that much to give
I used to think I’d know it all
Some time when everything was right
Now I don’t care how much I know
I’m glad if I can make it through the night

I’m out of time
Run out of time
But until the shadow falls on me
The day I meet my destiny
I’m fine

I watch the world wash past my face
See cataracts of sorrow race
And idly stand to add my share
To find that I have nothing there
The emptiness inside we fill
With extra sensory overkill
Till all we have is not our own
And someone else’s dreams will fill our home

I’m out of time
Run out of time
But until the shadow falls on me
The day I meet my destiny
I’m fine
Track Name: When Tigers Claw
When tigers claw you through the sheets
And every shadow terrifies
The bed's adrift, you've cried a sea
I'll hold you tight I'll dry your eyes
I'll hold you tight I'll dry your eyes

I'll wipe your tears and dry your face
I'll tuck you in and hold your hand
I'll stay until the pain has gone
I will not leave I understand
I will not leave I understand

I know what's worrying you
Because once upon a time it worried me too
But growing up's easy when you know what to do
I'm here for you
I'll help you through
I'm here for you
I'll help you through

When tigers claw you through the sheets
And every shadow terrifies
The bed's adrift, you've cried a sea
I'll hold you tight I'll dry your eyes
I'll hold you tight I'll dry your eyes
Track Name: Invisible Thread
It seems I can't forget
My brother's 8-track cassette
We're in his car, he's driving too fast
Dark Side of the moon is playing
And everything is held in place by invisible thread

It is what it is and whatever it is
Whatever, whatever,
It is what it is and whatever it is
Whatever…

The fire burned my foot
I ran to the house to cry in her arms
I crawled into the hole my brother dug
I didn't want to come out
And everything is held in place by invisible thread

It is what it is and whatever it is
Whatever, whatever,
It is what it is and whatever it is
Whatever…

And when I sleep I hope to reach the forest of my dreams ...

It is what it is and whatever it is
Whatever, whatever,
It is what it is and whatever it is
Whatever…
Track Name: Seven Dreams of Loving Someone
On Monday night she said goodbye
It broke her heart to see him cry
Oh wonder at such pain as this
From a final firm yet tender kiss on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday

He fell out of love with Victoria’s sister
And never dreamed that he might miss her
But memory plays a trick of time
Once again he’s wishing “If only she was mine” on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday

She looks like she’s listening to his replies
But panics screams behind her eyes
She knows that they’ve run out of luck
Situation normal all fucked up on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday

You kiss that smile you fall in love
Just like everybody does
So will you let perfection stay
Or watch it gently drift away on Tuesda
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday

Seven dreams of loving someone

Forever and a day he’d wait
Cursing circumstance and fate
He knows he met this boy too late
Now looks towards their final date on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday

So you bid your fond farewells
To nights of heaven and days of hell
Dreams conspired to tempt your hearts
You both woke up and fell apart on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday

Oh such tiny victories and losses
Are all there are we bear our crosses
But looking back we’ll miss our lives
In searching for some new suprise on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday
(Waiting for the world to end) on Tuesday ...
