CHINA CLUB So he kisses and he cuddles up It’s not enough to make it up It rocks him and it shocks him more To see her smiling out the door So he took her down to China Club To see if she’d move to the sound of love To see if she’d move to the sound of love And it went fine, fine, fine It went fine, fine, fine Though she wasn’t happy He praises her and tells her why Not hearing it, it’s passed her by He’s felt his heart, he’s felt it go The cracks are all now on show So he took her down to China Club To see if she’d move to the sound of love To see if she’d move to the sound of loveAnd give it time, time, time Share his time, time, time Until she was happy She could break in your hands Saying she is precious every day While you push it on She may have left you right behind She can break in your hands Saying she is precious every day While you push it on She may have left you right behind again She may have left you right behind again So she took him down to China Club To see if he’d groove to the sound of love To see if he’d groove to the sounds of love And it went fine, fine, fine It went fine, fine, fine For there she was happyHe’s not her kind, kind, kindNot her kind, kind, kindAnd so she was happy

THE PARATROOPER I’d explore the light that sat by the lakeAnd I’ll walk with the rays of the Sun shooting through, shouting throughOur terrain…that spot at the side of the lakeTo decide where the singing starts, where it ends, where it giftsThe boys have started their gamesThe girls are on their way to take such careful aim on loveCause when I have arms as wide as the ParatrooperI know what’s real and I know what’s notSeen the sky split the days underneath the ParatrooperHit me with your fellowship fixHit me with your fellowship hit….yeah, yeahCause when I have arms as wide as the ParatrooperI know what’s real and I know what’s notSeen the sky split the days waiting on the ParatrooperGreet me with your fellowship fixGreet me with your fellowship tripGreet me with your fellowship fixGreet me with your fellowship fixI’d ensure that the song can breathe as it shouldAnd I’d talk with the glow of the Sun sifting through, shifting throughOur terrain (Leighton Baines- like) …that spot at the side of the lake To decide where the season starts, where it ends, how it givesThe leaves disguise the realThe breeze begins as One begins, as each begins againCause when I have arms as wide as the ParatrooperI know what’s real and I know what’s notSeen the sky split the days waiting on the ParatrooperHit me with your fellowship fixHit me with your fellowship trip…. The lights are set to feelLike ever being, ever being, Ever Being on Lark Lane

BOYS AND GIRLS AFRAID OF THE DAYLIGHT The sounds are ones they’ve not heard beforeThey struck real deepIt seemed until then that words were frailAny message incompleteFaces are ones they’ve not met beforeThey kept their beauty so deepTestament now to all that purposeTo the real amidst beliefIf they could only mark their courseSomething along with the daylightIf they could only mark their courseSomething to complement daylightWhere you awaiting some praiseSome sign on the side like a satelliteSomething to offer every boy, any girlAfraid of the daylightTired of yearning, sitting boredWalking lonely around one stateThe talk is wavering on silence And these fears they cannot waitTired of losing out on youI want to walk and watch the starsTurn the switch and hold the sunSo it rests upon their hearts If they could only chart their courseSomething along with the daylightIf they could only chart their courseSomething to complement daylightWhere you awaiting some praiseSome sign on the side like a satelliteSomething to offer every boy, every girlAfraid of the daylightAfraid of the daylightIf they could only mark their courseSomething along with the daylight If they could only mark their courseSomething along with the daylight Where you awaiting some praiseSome signs on the side like a satelliteSomething to offer every boy, every girlAfraid of the daylightWhere you awaiting some scoreSome names on the side like a satelliteSomething to offer every boy, every girlAfraid of the daylightAfraid of the daylightAfraid of the daylight

 

CRAZILY The fridge it’s annoying meNothing is comfortableNothing is safeThe taps are upsetting meNothing is peacefulNothing‘s in its placeI leave the lamp on its beautiful spaceSeeing knives in the cupboards and baskets of platesAnd I’m sitting among the laundryMoving photos of matesLeaving games all over the sofaWalking out to the gateTo the gateI leave the lamp on cause its so, so coldCrazily you are my homeCrazily this is my homeThe piano is refreshing meSomething is comfortableSomething is safeThese cushions are warming meSomething is peacefulSomething’s in its placeI leave the lamp on its beautiful spaceSeeing clothes in the wardrobeFood I can tasteAnd I’m returning to the familyTo a beach I hydrateLying happily in gardens that care to escapeTo escapeI leave the lamp on cause its so, so warmCrazily you are my homeCrazily this is my homeI leave the lamp on cause its so, so warmCrazily you are my homeCrazily this is my homeCrazily you are my homeCrazily this is my homeWaiting wild, but sitting it throughWaiting a while but sitting it through
