1. Too Young To Die

2. Angel

standing in the rain
thinking those same thoughts again
when you were here
I knew then what I needed
if only I knew
which way I could turn
and keep you here

Angel
how could we be so lost
straight on
down through this life we'll go
and only time will tell
before we know

and we made all those plans
carefully drawn by hand
now that I know
what lies there before me
I just wish I knew
which way I can turn
and not see you

Angel
how could we be so lost
straight on
down through this life we'll go
and only time will tell if we meet
again
how could we really know
Angel
give me the strength to go
and only time will tell
before we know

and only time will tell
before we know

 

3. Telephone

4. Far Away

5. Torraine

Torraine, my love goes on
ever burning
feelings for you will never fade
fade away
Torraine

Torraine, this time I know
we finally made it
as children, we dreamed of this day
all our lives, Torraine
Torraine

 

6. Can't Stop You Now

7. We

look at me
could you say I'm a happy man
when times were hard
I put her back on her feet again

she went and pushed me too far

I paid the price
I couldn't live with her anymore
I sacrificed half my life
and was shown the door

we will make it
we won't fail
we will always win
we have powers
we have made
and we're forever you

times have changed
and all I want is to be with you
anyway
it can't be worse than I'm used to

I wouldn't offer you more

I paid the price
I couldn't live with her anymore
I sacrificed
half my life and was shown the door

 

8. You're Alone

stop
you'll never reach the other side
and drop
then only we'll be left to cry

I know you need a friend so do I
can we talk it over inside
that you're alone

then
as your darkness sets in don't be blind
there's people here alone all the time
waiting for the moment to be born
I know how you feel and there's more

you hide yourself there in your room
and gaze at the stars that you drew
wishing you could be someone else
but no one can help but yourself

of course
you told them one day you'd be free
and act
as though you've seen all there's to see

laughing through the night with your friends
but there's one thing that you can't pretend
you're alone

then
as your darkness sets in don't be blind
there's people here alone all the time
waiting for the moment to be born
I know how you feel and there's more

you hide yourself there in your room
and gaze at the stars that you drew
wishing you could be someone else
but no one can help but yourself

and no one can help but yourself

 

9. Man In The Moon

[Earth:]
Hey Mister
I can see you up there
your emotions to me
shine on the sea
stay alive my friend

[Moon:]
young man
I can see you down there
wheels keep on turning
and your world keeps on burning
it's not right my friend

[Earth:]
Mister Man in the Moon
tell me
what do you mean

[Moon:]
way before your time
there was just the still of night
and no one could see
emotions in me
until now, my friend

[Earth:]
listen
who can I believe
heartaches
always will be
Mister Man in the Moon
help me

time will remember you
I know, I know
time will make dreams come true
I know, I know
