Calling All Stations
(Banks / Rutherford)

Calling all stations
Can anybody tell me, tell me exactly where I am
I've lost all sense of direction
Watching the darkness closing around me
Feeling the cold all through my body
That's why I'm calling all stations
In the hope that someone hears me
A single lonely voice

I feel the sensation disappearing
There's a tingling in my arms
And there's a numbness in my hands

All the broken promises
All my good intentions don't add up to very much
And I realise whatever happened, whatever happened
I remember all the moments that I've wasted in my life
All the things I was always going to do
Why is it now when it's too late?
That I've finally realise it's important to me
To think everything that's dear to me
And is always in my heart
Could so easily be taken
And it's tearing me apart
Going over and over in my mind
I relive it one second at a time

Calling all stations
Can anybody tell me, tell me exactly where I am?
How different things look when your all on your own
Watching the darkness closing all around me
All around me
And I long for the feeling
Of your arms to remind me
Of everything that's dear to me
And is always in my heart
Could so easily be taken
And it's tearing me apart
Going over and over in my mind
I relive it one second at a time
Don't you know there's never been a moment?
When I haven't had the thought
That everything that's dear to me
And is always in my heart
Could so easily be taken
And it's tearing me apart
Going over and over in my mind
I relive it one second at a time
As I sit here in the darkness
Feeling so alone
And everything that's dear to me
And is always in my heart...


Congo
(Banks / Rutherford)

You say that I put chains on you
But I don't think that's really true
But if you want to be free from me
You gotta lose me in another world

Send me to the Congo, I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna, just do what you please

Like a soldier ant
I will wait for the signal to act
To take a walk right through the door
If you don't want me here any more

Send me to the Congo, I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna, just do what you please

Into my heart you came
And gave a whole new meaning to my life
Into my world you brought a light
I thought it never would go out

Send me to the Congo, I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

You can send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Yes you can send me to the Congo, you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

I would never be the one to say you had no reason
To want me somewhere else far far away
But someday you may understand, someday you will see
That someone who would die for you is all I've ever been

Congo the Congo, if that's how it's got to be
Congo the Congo, if that's what you want from me

I would never be the one to say you had no reason
To want me somewhere else far far away
Someday you may understand someday you will see...


Shipwrecked
(Banks / Rutherford)

I'm a million miles from anywhere, where can I be
Somewhere out on the ocean
Just take a look out on the horizon, what can you see
There's nothing there for me

I feel shipwrecked; I might as well be shipwrecked
I'm helpless and alone, drifting out to sea
I can't believe what you said to me

Even standing on the corner of a busy city street
I still feel so lonely
Why do you say you want to be with me?
But the next day say you don't

I'm shipwrecked; I might as well be shipwrecked
I'm helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can't believe what you said to me
Without you I feel shipwrecked
But I can't let it show
A million miles away from anywhere

Is it my imagination
Or is it getting darker, are the waves getting higher?
I'm a million miles from anywhere
A million miles from anything I know

You know that's why I'm shipwrecked
I might as well be shipwrecked
I'm helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can't believe what you said to me
You know that's why I'm shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Losing my direction
Please come and rescue me
Shipwrecked, shipwrecked, shipwrecked


Alien Afternoon
(Banks / Rutherford)

Woke up in the morning, staggered out of bed
Thought about getting back again, but went downstairs instead,
Read the daily paper have to know the truth
Slammed the door as I ran outside, looked at my watch and cried
Gotta get to work on time
Gotta get to work on time.

Then the sky turned a deeper blue,
Not a cloud as the sun shone through
But all around rain kept falling to the ground,
The wind was blowing but the trees didn't make a sound
Just another alien afternoon
Just another alien afternoon.

Time that I was leaving while there's still a chance,
Before I start believing in what I see or hear.
Nothing here to keep me, nothing anywhere,
Gotta get out pack my bags before I go insane,
Gotta get away in time
Gotta get away in time.

Then the sky turned from blue to green,
Took on colours I have never seen.
Then a sound started ringing in my ears,
I heard voices but in truth there's nobody there.
Just another alien afternoon
Just another alien afternoon

To be there back where I belong,
To feel again the wind upon my face.
To see again all that I took for granted
All that I left and everything I knew

We are home
We are your home
We are all your home

Not another alien afternoon

Never more to go wandering
Never leaving my world behind

There was never a reason
To leave my heart and my home behind
Where I was born is where I should be now.
I would never be lonely
I would never be sad again.

I wanted to go anywhere,
I wanted to see how strange it all could be.
Nothing would ever take me away again.
Never more to go wandering
Never leaving my world behind
No, no, no, no
Nothing will ever take me away again, away again
No, no, no, no


Not About Us
(Banks / Rutherford / Wilson)

A little piece of something
Falling gently down, down, down
No one understands you like I do

I'd rather be beside you
Everything we know so well
Tell me what you feel now
Show me what you think of it

It's not about us anymore
It's all about the reasons
That we think we're fighting for
It's not about hate
It's not about pain we always feel
I know we have our problems
But we're not the only ones
It's not about you, it's not about me
It's not about anger
It's more about the loneliness we feel

How can I begin to
Ask for some forgiveness
For all that we have taken
There's nothing left now

Just a little piece of something
Falling gently down, down, down,
No one understands you no, no
Like I do
There's nothing left now

It's not about us anymore
It's all about the reasons
That we think we're fighting for
It's not about hate
It's not about pain we always feel
I know we have our problems
But we're not the only ones
It's not about you, it's not about me
It's not about anger
It's more about the loneliness we feel

It's not about us
It's not about hate
It's more about the loneliness we feel, can you feel it
It's not about anger
It's not about wanting
I know we have our problems
But we're not the only ones, we're not the only ones
It's not about you, it's not about me...


If That's What You Need
(Banks / Rutherford)

Talking makes us human, that's what I was told
So why do I find it so difficult to let my feelings unfold
Had I the courage to tell you I'd promise you this

If that's what you need
I'll be the river, I'll be the mountain always beside you
If that's what you need

I will be stronger, I will be braver than ever before

When you came along and turned it all around
I promised myself I wouldn't tell you
Until we stood on solid ground
Holding the candle between us I'll tell you this

If that's what you need
I'll be the river, I'll be the mountain always beside you
If that's what you need
I will be stronger, I will be braver than ever before

And if there's any kind of danger
I hear you calling out my name
You can follow in my footsteps
And I will lead you safely back again

I never understood you however hard I tried
But it took me a while until I realised
That all the problems were mine
Holding you nearer to me to tell you this

If that's what you need
I'll be the river, I'll be the mountain always beside you
If that's what you need
I will be stronger, I will be braver than ever before
And when things go wrong
I'll be your conscience there to remind you all of your life
When you go wrong
I'll be the reason you'll be protected all of your days


The Dividing Line
(Banks / Rutherford)

There has always been a dividing line
But you choose, you choose, yes you choose not to see it
And then you wonder why you fall
It cuts through the heart of every city
If you climb to the top of the highest building
You can see where it falls 'cause the streetlights stop
The colours start to change
You hear a voice inside you
Not the words that you wanted to hear
Not the things that you wanted to see

In the comfort and safety of your own home
Remember those outside in the cold
And the wind and the rain
And take in your hands a little ray of light
And turn it into a beam that pierces the darkness of the night

There has always been a dividing line
But you choose, you choose, yes you choose not to see it
Sometimes we believe if we close our eyes
The rain might wash it away
That's why we stumble and we fall
Not the words that you wanted to hear
Not the things that you wanted to see

When everything that you hold dear to you
Has finally faded away from your life
The last cold ray of sunshine slowly disappears
Round the corner of the building
And leaves you alone
When darkness covers the city and the streets are silent too
What will you turn to?


Uncertain Weather
(Banks / Rutherfrord)

A day of uncertain weather
Captured in a frame forever,
A face in a faded photograph.

He must have had a life,
Maybe with a family
People who meant everything to him.

A sinner, a saint, a soldier
Caught up in a war he never
Had a chance to start or build a life.

All gone long ago
Leaving no trace,
Disappearing like smoke in the wind,
To become just a face without a name,
Leaving no trace
Disappearing like smoke in the wind.

Hopes and fears important plans,
Forgotten memories.
Footsteps fading in the sand,
Schemes and dreams small and grand
Nothing left to see
Footsteps fading in the sand.

Someone who cast a shadow
Maybe just a lazy man,
Doesn't make much difference now it's true.

A day of uncertain weather
Captured in a frame forever
A face in a faded photograph.

All gone long ago.
Leaving no trace,
Disappearing like smoke in the wind,
To become just a face without a name
One more to add to the total
Of those never heard of again

Yes he's gone,
Just a face without a name.
Leaving no trace,
Disappearing like smoke in the wind.
All gone
Just a face without a name.
Leaving no trace,
Disappearing like smoke in the wind.


Small Talk
(Banks / Rutherford / Wilson)

Don't talk back to me, don't talk back to me
Don't talk back to me, don't talk

Going round in circles, hearing too many points of view
Just words to tire me out, small talk I could do without
I would be amazed if you returned to see things my way
Now that you've been disrespectful to my sense of pride

Isn't it a shame that you were lying when you said to me
I was the only one; you and I were meant to be
I expect you'll never really feel the way that I do
All of this is with regret, I'm sure you will agree

Say something to me, anything at all
I want you to mean what you say
I've seen all I want to see, and you mean the world to me
I've lived for each moment to be, with you, with you, with you

Small talk, small talk, small talk, small talk

You say I don't talk enough, that applies to both of us
Don't try to sound me out, something I could do without
So much goes on inside your head, I often wonder
Have you heard enough to know, there's nothing left to say

Say something to me, anything at all
I want you to mean what you say
I've seen all I want to see, and you mean the world to me
I've lived for each moment to be, with you, with you, with you

Small talk, small talk, small talk
It's all I ever hear
Small talk

It may take some time
But I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me) (don't want to be alone, nothing worth to carry on)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me) (try hard to understand, you won't seem to lend a hand)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me) (without you'll fail to see, you never spare a thought for me)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me) (so many things you said, going round in circles)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me) (I'll rise above it all, enough to see another day)
I'll be alright
I'll be alright
Don't talk back to me...


There Must Be Some Other Way
(Banks / Collins / Rutherford)

You're no longer part of my life
I must remind myself again,
Too much has happened to us to cause eachother pain.
It's over now, there's too much guilt to share
Once there would have been a time for talking and learning.

There must be some other way
To get where we have to go.
There must be some other way,
Please show me another way.
Once it would have been so easy to do what we have to do,
There must be some other way.
Please show me another way.

Are we no more than parts in a play
Letting other people, strangers say our lines?
To think it should come to this, after all these years:
What was mine and what should stay behind?
Once there would have been a time of sharing, of caring

There must be some other way
To get where we have to go.
There must be some other way,
Please show me another way.
Once it would have been so easy to do what we have to do,
There must be some other way.
Please show me another way.

There's nothing much left to say,
We have said it once and said it all again
This time we have gone too far, it could never be the same,
It's time to carry on, create new lives.
Once we promised we would stay together forever,

There must be some other way
To get where we have to go.
There must be some other way
Please show me another way,
Once it would have been so easy to do what we have to do,
There must be some other way.
Please show me another way.


One Man's Fool
(Banks / Rutherford)

As the buildings crumble, tumble to the ground
And the dust-filled smoke rises in the air,
You know that somebody somewhere looks with pride, they're satisfied

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that they're right,
D'you ever wonder why?
D'you never ask the question even in the depths of night?

Now as the daylight fading ends another day,
For too many life will never be the same
And it is all for the reason they will never understand.

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that they're right
D'you ever wonder why?
D'you never ask the question even in the depths of night?

And on the morning after do you realise
See the ruined faces and the ruined lives,
Inside your head do you never have the thought a moment of doubt?

To all who think they know
To everyone that knows that they're right
D'you ever wonder why?
D'you never ask the question even in the depths of night?

There are only dreams one like any other
What means the earth to one or few means nothing to another.
There are only dreams like any other.

Drawing lines upon the sand, on the land, on the sea,
Then dying to defend them seems quite meaningless to me.

But don't you know what means the earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing, nothing, nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other.
There are only differences, worth living but not dying for.

One man's joy makes another man weep
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it.
One man's saint is another man's fool
One man's hot is another man's cool.

And when the war is over, won,
Will there be peace for evermore?

Statues carved right out of stone, out of wood, made from gold,
Praying for their mercy, that won't save your soul.

Don't you know what means the earth to some or only one
Can mean just nothing, nothing, nothing to another

There are only dreams like any other,
There are only hopes and beliefs, one like any other,
Worth living but not dying for,
Living but not dying for, not killing for.
There are only dreams like any other, like any other.

To all of those who think that they know
All I can say, yes all I can say.

One man's joy makes another man weep
Nothing you can do is ever gonna change it.
One man's saint is another man's fool.
One man's hot is another man's cool.
