Black pearl (5:59)
It's three A.M.
Teddy's up against the wall
It's the type of the end
Long distance call
They live so far apart but she's still here in his heart
And touching her world got him hooked on that girl

Read between lines
Turn each and every stone
Wishing he could see her shine
Black pearl

Hearing that voice so warm so cruel
He's got no choice
Doesn't care to be a fool

Someday they'll be together
Someday somehow
In the shade of a mango tree
They'll revive their history

Read between lines
Turn each and every stone
Wishing he could see her shine
Black pearl

Someday they'll be together
Someday somehow
In the shade of a mango tree
They'll revive their history

Read between lines
Turn each and every stone
Wishing he could see her shine
Black pearl
Black pearl
Black pearl

Cold wind (6:13)
I have been patient but now it's clear
I'm wasting my time
'Cause you're not here

Too many nights I've been alone
It's out of control
This growing storm

There's a cold wind blowing in my heart

Whatever happened to our dream
Where did it go
This golden gleam

There's a cold wind blowing
Cold wind blowing
There's a cold wind blowing in my heart

There's a cold wind blowing
Cold wind blowing
There's a cold wind blowing in my heart

We both know it's over
It's painfully clear
Loved and abused
So what can i say
You won't come closer
And i have to cut you loose

There's a cold wind blowing
Cold wind blowing
There's a cold wind blowing in my heart

There's a cold wind blowing…

God is asleep (4:34)
The morning paper is staring at my face
The headlines still the same
I guess my feelings changed

I see a picture of a war a child in pain
Questions in his eyes
But no one to explain

'Cause God is asleep
Leaving this world to our trust
God is asleep
And he has no time for us

A woman is screaming at the burning sun
Promises were made
But the food supplies won't come

And a young man is burning candles in a church
Death is in his blood
But his prayers are not heard

'Cause God is asleep
Leaving this world to our trust
God is asleep
And he has no time for us

And all the preachers keep their silence
No miracle today
The prince of darkness lies in wait
To fade us all away
He has closed his eyes
And we all wonder why... why

'Cause God is asleep
Leaving this world to our trust
God is asleep
And he has no time for us

House for sale (4:52)
The sign went up one rainy morning
Just a couple of hours after dawn
Mrs Hadley peaked out through her curtains
Wondering what was going on
The neighbours said over coffee cups
That nice young couple is breaking up

And in the living room the linen and the crystals
Sit all packed and set to go
I tell myself once more I won't be here this spring
To see my roses grow
And all the things you tried to fix
The roof still leaks the door still sticks

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

I know you've always loved that painting
From that funny little shop in Spain
Remember how we found it when we ducked in
From that sudden summer rain
But I think I'll keep the silver tray
My mother gave us on our wedding day

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

House for sale
You can read it on the sign
House for sale oh
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

How to deal with you (4:26)
Each night before i go to sleep i lie awake
Listening to that silent voice
It tells me all about the roads that i can take
It tells me that i have a choice

And in the morning the sun will shine again
And my heart will tell me what i have to do
And in the morning i will understand
How to deal with you

I count my blessings as the sleep relieves my soul
I am floating with the stream
Those doubtfull questions i can hear their wailing call
I'll find the answers in my dream

And in the morning the sun will shine again
And my heart will tell me what i have to do
And in the morning i will understand
How to deal with you

And in the deep of my subconscious
I see the painfull truth
You are playing with my heart but you don't care
I'm getting stronger in the darkness
And when i wake up i know what to do
And how to deal with you

And in the morning the sun will shine again
And my heart will tell me what i have to do
And in the morning i will understand
How to deal with you...

In the morning...
In the morning...

I can't have it all (4:25)
In my dreams i see your face and you're smiling
We've got plenty of time
But it seems there is no space i'm always trying
To find new mountains to climb

Don't think that i'm complaining
But sometimes i feel so small
And i know, i can't have it all
I can't have it all

In my life there've been so many faces
I wonder where they are now
Oh i've tried to see all the changes
But i didn't know how

And now, now they're only strangers
I'm surrounded by a wall
And i know i can't have it all
I can't have it all

Why do i sing the songs i'm singing
What am i trying to say
I fear the crowd
Is it love is it hate when they shout

Oh i know i can't have it all
I just can't have it all oh
I can't have it all

I just can't have it all

Rose (3:00)
Heartache and sorrow
The world can be rough
We slave for tomorrow
Never enough
Not for my angel
She lives by the day
My rose in this jungle
You show me the way
My rose in this jungle
You show me the way

There's so much pressure
The stakes are so high
But I've got a treasure
No money can buy
Magical fairy
Saving the day
My rose in this jungle
You show me the way
My rose in this jungle
You show me the way

You hold a power
That nobody knows
So many flowers
Only one rose
Hearing your laughter
Seeing your smile
Touching my heart
You make it worthwhile

My rose in this jungle
My beautiful child

Rose's cantina (4:26)
There's a place where we go almost once every week
Where we wine and dine down in the shady glow
And it's tacos and nachos sweet margeritas
Tortillas and red beans and pretty signoritas
Down at the Rose's Cantina

You gotta feel the spirit, you gotta touch the
Spirit in Rose's Cantina, Rose's Cantina

You can take your friends you can hear the band play
You gotta get down to where it's really at
Hear the tinkles in the consertinas
Do the bamba with the ballerinas
Down at the Rose's Cantina

You gotta feel the spirit, you gotta touch the
Spirit in Rose's Cantina, Rose's Cantina
in Rose's Cantina, in Rose's Cantina
Rose's Cantina, Rose's Cantina

When you're tired and sore Rose's takes you
Up the snowcap mountains
To turn into a true casanova
Come on all of us people let's celebrate
the cup's filled up and the table's layed
Hands down with your friends
Red, yellow or black

You gotta feel the spirit, you gotta touch the
Spirit in Rose's Cantina, Rose's Cantina
Roses Cantina...

Sometimes I wish I was my dog (4:11)
Sitting in my garden watching my dog
Playing with his bone, playing with my thoughts
It's unbelievable
Everything is fine he's got nothing on his mind

Lying on his back dreaming in the grass
So satisfied I have to confess
It's unbelievable
He lives the perfect life

No frictions ambitions
No jealousy
No egos black shadows
He's telling me

It's not worth it to waste all of my time
I don't deserve this I commited no crime
Desperately searching for some peace of mind
Oh sometimes I wish I was my dog

Sitting in my garden watching my dog
Ready for the world ready for his walk
It's unbelievable
He's really got it made his private heaven in the shade

No shame and no taxman
No sleepless nights
Stock changes cruel strangers
No if's and might's

No it's not worth it to waste all of my time
I don't deserve this I commited no crime
Desperately searching for some peace of mind
Oh sometimes I wish I was my dog

Yeah yeah

No worry no hurry
No used-to-be
No lovesick no heartache
It's plain to see

That it's not worth it to waste all of my time
I don't deserve this I committed no crime
Desperately searching for some peace of mind
Oh sometimes I wish I was my dog

Step into the light (4:48)
Standing in the darkness
Waiting for that sign to come
Cold sweat and i'm helpless
Here i come i can't be wrong

Something is taking over
It takes away the fear from me
I feel the power coming
This is where i want to be

I step into the light of a lifelong dream
That famous other side where the grass is green
I'm going for a ride with my dream-machine oh baby
That's what i'm living for

The crowd is my appointment
They all know i dedicate
All i've got to this moment
Ain't got no pearls no real estate

I feel the tension rising
A vulcano that is going to erupt
A holy fire is burning
Here i go i can't be stopped

I step into the light of a lifelong dream
That famous other side where the grass is green
I'm going for a ride with my dream-machine oh baby
That's what i'm living for

Where hearts are broken everything is outspoken
Welcome to the mirror of life
Unchained emotions honesty devotion
Top of the world step into the sacred light

I step into the light
I step into the light...

I'm going for a ride with my dream-machine oh baby
That's what i'm living for

We don't have to say goodnight (6:53)
Come a little bit closer darling
Don't be shy now
'Cause it ain't over darling
Come on let's try now
Let's try to make it better
We can break the silence
And it will be better than before

We don't have to say goodnight
Come on baby
Don't be polite no no
Everything's alright

No it's not too late believe me
Come on let's try now
Don't be afraid don't leave me
Come have a heart now

My heart's on fire
We can make it happen if we try

We don't have to say goodnight
Come on baby
Don't be polite no no
Everything's alright
We don't have to say goodnight

Shame on you, shame on you
You've waited much too long
Now that we're together this feeling
Can't be wrong oh yeah
Let's bring the ceiling down let's turn
Back the time
And when the morning comes you'll
Be mine yeah

We can break the silence
And it will be alright
We can break the spell now
Understand now

We don't have to say goodnight
Don't be polite no no

What I do know (4:26)
Tell me what tomorrow will bring
You ask me every day
Will the world become a better place
For us to stay
Will the hatred disappear
And is there something we can do
I don't know
I just know that i love you

You question all the things you do
It haunts you every night
You wake up screaming demons are coming
I tell you it's alright
You start crying you're afraid
And ask me if i feel it too
No I don't
But I do know i love you

I don't know
How many times the sun will rise
I don't know
What is true, who's telling lies
You keep asking me for answers
I wish i knew
But i don't,
What i do know is i love you

The search for tender happiness
I suppose has made you blind
You never take a simple thing
For granted, i don't mind
But it scares me when you ask me
If i believe your love is true
'Cause i don't know
I just know that i love you

I don't know
All the secrets of the night
I don't know
What is wrong and what is right
You keep asking me for answers
I wish i knew
But i don't
What i do know is i love you

I don't know
What the future has in store
I don't know, i don't know it anymore
You keep asking me for answers
I wish i knew
But i don't
What i do know is i love you
All i know is that i do know i love you
