Mama
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

I can't see you mama
but I know you're always there
Ooh to touch and to feel you mama
Oh I just can't keep away
It's the heat and the steam of the city
Oh its got me running and I just can't brake
So say you'll help me mama
Cos its getting so hard

Now I can't keep you mama
But I know you're always there
You listen, you teach me mama
And I know inside you care
So get down, down here beside me
Oh you ain't going nowhere
No I won't hurt you mama
But it's getting so hard

Can't you see me mama
Mama, mama, mama, please
Can't you feel my heart
Can't you feel my heart
Can't you feel my heart oh
Listen to me mama
Mama mama
You're taking away any last chance
Don't take it away
Can't you feel my heart?....

It's hot, too hot for me mama
But I can't hardly wait
My eyes they're burning mama
Make the pain, make it go away
No I won't hurt you mama
But its getting so hard

Now I can't see you mama
But I know you're always there
You taunt, you tease me mama
But I never never can keep away
it's the heat and the steam of the city
Oh got me running and I just can't break
So stay don't leave me mama
Cos it's getting so hard


That's All
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

I could leave but I won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Turning me on, turning me off,
Making me feel like I want too much
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time
Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all

Truth is I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no-one who
Makes me feel like you do
Way we'll be together till the end

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

That's all


Home By The Sea
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

Creeping up the blind side, shinning up the wall
Stealing through the dark of night
Climbing through a window, stepping to the floor
Checking to the left and the right
Picking up the pieces, putting them away
Something doesn't feel quite right

Help me someone, let me out of here
Then out of the dark was suddenly heard
Welcome to the Home by the Sea

Coming out the woodwork, thru the open door
Pushing from above and below
Shadows without substance, in the shape of men
Round and down and sideways they go
Adrift without direction, eyes that hold despair
Then as one they sign and they moan

Help us someone, let us out of here
Living here so long undisturbed
Dreaming of the time we were free
So many years ago
Before the time when we first heard
Wwelcome to the Home by the Sea

Sit down, sit down
Let us we relive out lives in what we tell you

Images of sorrow, pictures of delight
Things that go to make up a life
Endless days of summer longer nights of gloom
Waiting for the morning light
Scenes of unimportance like photos in a frame
Things that go to make up a life

Help us someone, let us out of here
Living here so long undisturbed
Dreaming of the time we were free
Sso many years ago
Before the time when we first heard
Welcome to the Home by the Sea

Sit down sit down
As we relive out lives in what we tell you
Let us relive out lives in what we tell you

Sit down sit down
Cos you won't get away
So with us you will stay
For the rest of your days. So sit down
As we relive out lives in what we tell you
Let us relive out lives in what we tell you


Second Home By The Sea



Illegal Alien
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
The sun is shining so I head for the park,
With a bottle of Tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes

I got a cousin and she got a friend
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
At his apartment I knocked on the door
He wouldn't come out until he got paid.
Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do
if they find out you know that they'll never let me through.

It's no fun being an illegal alien
It's no fun being an illegal alien

Down at the office had to fill out the forms
A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose,
Up to the counter to see what they think
They said 'It doesn't count man, it ain't written in ink'.
Don't trust anybody least not around here, cos

It's not fun being and illegal alien,
It's not fun being and illegal alien,
It's not fun being and illegal alien,
It's not fun being and illegal alien,
An illegal alien, O.K.

Consideration for your fellow man
Wouldn't hurt anybody, sure fits in with my plan
Over the border, there lies the promised land
Where everything's easy jou just hold out your hand

Keep your suspicions, I've seen that look before
O ain't done nothing wrong now, is that such a surprise?
But I've got a sister who'd be willing to oblige
She will do anything now to help me get to the outside.

So don't tell anybody what I wanna do
If they find out you know that they'll never let me through.

It's no fun being an illegal alien
It's no fun being an illegal alien
It's no fun being an illegal alien
It's no fun being an illegal alien


Taking It All Too Hard
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

No not this confused again
No not the same mistakes again.
You're taking it all to heart
You're taking it all too hard

Why can't you see what's going on?
I know you'd never admit
You would ever be to blame
Everything's a game to you
The old days are gone
And they're better left alone
I cannot help you, it's much too late

Oh no not this confused again
Oh no not the same mistakes again.
You're taking it all to heart
You're taking it all too hard

There's always a reason why it happened
You never, never did anything wrong, but it
It just happened to fall apart
You're taking it all too hard

Now that it's dark, all of your fears,
Like shadows creeping around.
You're much too scared to look down
And it's lonely out on your own

The old days are gone
And they're better left alone
But I still miss you
I keep it to myself

Oh no not this confused again
Oh no not the same mistakes again
You're taking it all to heart
You're taking it all too hard

Oh no not this confused again
Oh no not the same mistakes again
You're taking it all to heart
You're taking it all too hard
You're taking it all to heart
You're taking it all too hard


Just A Job To Do
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

No use saying that it's alright, it's alright
Where were you after midnight, midnight.
Heard a Bang, Bang, Bang; Down they go
It's just a job you do
Cos the harder they run, the harder they fall.
I'm coming down hard on you.

No-one saw what you looked like, what you looked like
Like a stranger coming out of the night, out of the night
Someone put the word on you, I hope my aim is true

I got a name, I got a number, I gotta line on you
I got a name, I got a number, I'm coming after you

Don't keep saying that it's alright, it's alright,
It seems you went just a little too far this time
Heard a Bang, Bang, Bang, and down you go,
It's just a job I do
Cos the harder you run the harder you fall,
I'm coming down hard on you, hard on you.

I got a name, I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, I got a number, I'm coming after you

Keep running, keep running; city to city
Even if you're innocent,
You can cause too much embarrassment
And though your heart is breaking
And you know there's no mistaking,
For you feel your life line breaking
Can feel your hands are shaking
No-one answers the telephone
You can never even go home alone
And though your heart is breaking
And you know there's no mistaking.
The footsteps close behind.

Don't pretend that you sleep at night, sleep tight
Can't you feel that the time is right, it's alright.
Heard a Bang, Bang, Bang, down you go
No-one really cares
Cos the harder you run, the harder you fall,
I'm coming down hard on you.

I got a name, I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, I got a number, I'm coming after you

I got a name, I got a number, I got a line on you
I got a name, I got a number, I got a job to do



Silver Rainbow
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

River flow uphill
Blue turns into grey
Winter follows springtime
Morning ends the day
Beyond the silver rainbow

if you're walking home beside her
And you know what time it is
And if you avoid the puddles in your way
You haven't been there either
To the land that lies
Beyond the silver rainbow

But if you're walking home beside her
And the sun should turn to blue
And you keep on going cos you're unaware
Then you know that you are there

Beyond the silver rainbow
You won't know if you're coming or going

if you're sitting there beside her
With your arms you hold her close
And you're wondering just how far she'll let you go
You haven't been there either
To the land that lies
Beyond the silver rainbow

But if you're sitting there beside her
And a bear comes in the room
And you keep on going cos you're unaware
Thten you know that you are there

Beyond the silver rainbow
You won't know if you're coming or going


It's Gonna Get Better
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

Reach out, hands in the air, don't just what they're saying
Hold out, just keep on hoping against hope it's gonna get better
Don't worry, there's not hurry for you, for me everything's gonna come around
Shout out, someone will listen to you, to me, someone's gonna see

He calls me over, cals me brother and I know
Always fighting and moonlighting, it never ends
In the city, if you're all alone
There's a sister and she's standing next to her man
In the darkness you feel the sharpness of steel
And it's always there, in the city, if you're all alone

Reach out, hands in the air,
Don't care just what they're saying

Hold out, just keep on hoping
against hope it's gonna get better

Don't worry, there's not hurry for you,
or me everything's gonna come around

Shout out, someone will listen to you,
to me, someone's gonna see


If it's gonna get better, it starts with a feeling
If it's gonna get better, it's gonna take time
If it's gonna get better, we've gotta start now
Cos I know everybody can feel it
And I know everybody will see it
Cos it shows, and that shows I'm not dreaming
Cos you know, I know, it's time for a change
