Track Name: No Summer Without You
Now a year has gone
And summer, summer's here again
And I hear they play our song
On the radio

We still thought we had the whole world in our hands
But we never understood that we were running
We were running out of time.

(Sha na na na na na na)
So let the rain fall
(Sha na na na na na na)
'Cause the sun won't shine
(Sha na na na na na na)
Now let the rain pour down
There'll be no summer without you

Blinded by the light
I'm hiding, hiding in the night
But when I close my eyes
I still dream of you

I always thought that we were shining, like stars
But I never understood that you were falling
You were falling out of love.

(Sha na na na na na na)
So let the rain fall
(Sha na na na na na na)
'Cause the sun won't shine
(Sha na na na na na na)
Now let the rain pour down
There'll be no summer without you

And I
(You're in the dark, you're in the cold, without a shelter from the storm)
I wish that I could make you see
As long as you are gone
(Without a shelter from the storm)
The sun will never, ever shine on me

(Sha na na na na na na)
So let the rain fall
(Sha na na na na na na)
'Cause the sun won't shine
(Sha na na na na na na)
Now let the rain pour down
There'll be no summer without you

Oh, no
Let the rain pour down on me
There'l be no summer without you
For me
Track Name: Come Together
It's monday morning and it's raining
You're waiting for the bus
The man in front of you reads his paper
And the headline says "It's alive!"
You try to close your eyes

You're getting restless and the bus is late
The rain is picking up
Then from behind you hear a voice
A man who whispers "Come here and try...
I know that pigs can fly"

You are a saint you are a sinner
You can always be a winner
But you're not gonna make it alone
(So come together)
(So come together)
Come together now

You press your face into the glass
And watch the city slippin' by
The glass is cold and makes you numb
And then a woman starts to cry
And you you wonder why

And in the dawn you start to drift
Your mind is floating on it's own
And in the middle of that dream
You're running through the crowd
Shouting out so loud

You are a saint you are a sinner
You can always be a winner
But you're not gonna make it alone
You will never make it on your own
(So come together)
(So come together)
Come together now

You are a saint you are a sinner
You can always be a winner
But you're not gonna make it alone
(So come together)
(So come together)

(So come together)
(So come together)
(So come together)
And you...
(So come together)
Then it's raining...
(So come together)
It makes you numb...
(So come together)
Shouting out so loud...
I know that pigs can fly
Track Name: The Big One
You've got everything you need
There’s nothing more you want
You are as happy as you can be (or so you say)
Nothing more in this world you want

On your way to work
You’re body starts to shake
Find yourself in a traffic jam
Caught up in a lie
Crying like child
(and then you know)

Life is a roller-coaster ride
And it scares you 'til you cry
Still you want the big one
Life is like driving when you’re blind
You just crash and don’t know why
Still you want the fast one
Life is life is like a knife
A stab in the dark
A cry in the night

You know who you love, and who you don't
You say there is no other choice
You think you’re always in control
You know your do's and you know your dont's

One day in the shower
Your world begins to swirl
You reach out for something to hold
When your legs begin to curl
Crying like child
(and by now you know)

Life is a roller-coaster ride
And it scares you 'til you cry
Still you ride the big one
Life is like driving when you're blind
You just crash and don't know why
Still you drive a fast one
Life is life is like a knife
A stab in the dark
A cry in the night
Track Name: Diamond In the Sky
I remember when I last saw him
He was leaning over the edge
He turned to me, his face was shining in the sun
And he said
How do we know when it’s the end of the line

On our way back home
We sailed the sky
He put my hand into his own
I’ll show you how to fly higher
He wiped a tear from my eye and he said
You’re the diamond in my sky

We took a left turn at the first moon
Took a right beside the sun
A dimpled cheek and a twinkle in his eye
And he said
A pretty woman on the run well, what could be more fun

On our way back home
We sailed the sky
He put my hand into his own
I’ll show you how to fly higher

On our way back home
We sailed the sky
He put my hand into his own
I’ll show you how to fly higher and higher

Oh you are the diamond in my sky
An I’ll show you how to fly
Higher and higher

He wiped a tear from my eye and he said
You’re mine
Track Name: As Long as I Don't Cry
I never thought it would be easy
I never thought it would be always good
But I never realized it would be so hard loving you
But then I never understood

Why your love is so sweet is so bitter
Is so sour, like lemon after sugar
But never salt like my tears
As long as I don’t cry I can taste your love again

You never promised you would love me
You never promised that you always would be true
You offered nothing more than a little taste from your cup
I should've known better but I finished it up

And it felt so sweet, felt so bitter
Felt so sour, like lemon after sugar
But never salt like my tears
As long as I don’t cry I can taste your love again

And your love is so sweet is so bitter
Is so sour, like lemon after sugar
But never salt like my tears
As long as I don’t cry I can taste your love again

As long as I don’t cry
I can taste your love
I can raise your cup again
Track Name: Anything
Is there anything I can do?
Is there anything I can say?
Is there anything in this whole wide world
To make you love me?
Then now it's time to tell

I won't let my love love love love love love
let my love
Shine on you

No I won't let my love love love love love love
Shine on you
Anymore

You know all the things we can't hide
You know all those sleepless nights
You know the hard words and you know the fights
But anyway baby
Please, please stay

I won't let my love love love love love love
let my love
Shine on you

No I won't let my love love love love love love
Shine on you
Anymore

Nothing ever stays the same
Now it's your life, and not a game
And now it's time to choose
Or otherwise we loose

I won't shine
No I won't shine
Shine on you
No I, I will be fine
Yes I'll be fine
Without you

No I won't let my love love love love love love
Let my love
Shine on you
(Shine on you)

No I won't let my love love love love love love
Shine on you
Anymore

If there's nothing I can say
If there's nothing I can do
If there's nothing in this whole wild world
Then baby I think we're through
Track Name: Let Us Light a Fire
Let us light a fire
A fire to keep us warm
I've been walking on a wire
I've been walking all alone
When I look into your eyes
I realise I'm back
Where I belong
Where I belong

Let me see the colour of your eyes
Help me read the truth behind the lies
I can see the world is changing
But I don't know what to do
How to push through

Let us light a fire
A fire to keep us warm
I've been walking on a wire
I've been walking all alone
When I look into your eyes
I realise I'm back
Where I belong
Where I belong

Angels stood there crying in the street
And the beggars prayed for mercy at their feet
Me I just got busted
For sleeping on the porch
At the back of your house

Let us light a fire
A fire to keep us warm
I've been walking on a wire
I've been walking all alone
When I look into your eyes
I realise I'm back
Where I belong
Where I belong

(Let us light a fire)
Let us light a fire
(Let us light a fire)
Let us light a fire
(Let us light a fire)
Light the fire to keep us warm

Let us light a fire
A fire to keep us warm
I've been walking on a wire
I've been walking all alone
When I look into your eyes
I realise I'm back
Where I belong

(Where I belong)
Now when I look into your eyes baby
(Where I belong)
I realise I'm back
Where I belong
Now when I look into your eyes
(Where I belong)
I'm back where I belong
Track Name: The Kiss
I've seen a glimpse of heaven
A tiny spark that burnt my lips
like tinder waiting to be kindled
a silent fire deep within

I've looked for life in all it's beauty
I've looked for beauty in every face I've seen
And all along it was beside me
Ohh you
Ohh you

And now I'm just a sailor without sails
Drifting out into open seas
And lost without directions
Oh God can please someone rescue me

I've looked for life in all it's beauty
I've looked for beauty in every face I've seen
I've looked for someone to believe in
Ohh you
Ohh you

I've looked for life in all it's beauty
I've looked for beauty in every face I've seen
And all along it was beside me
Ohh you
Yes you
And a kiss
Track Name: Easy
There is nowhere I would rather be than right here with you
and there is nothing I would rather do than to keep you close and tell you
That I need you
You can be sure I do

There is nowhere I would rather stay than stay here with you
and there is nothing I'd rather do than to run away with you now
I know we need to
I really know we do

And I could go anywhere
even to the moon
'cause everything is so easy with you
So easy that I could catch it with a tune
'cause everything is easy
so easy with you

There is no one I would rather see everyday here but you
and there is nothing I would rather say
'cause it's never been more true
That I love you
You can be sure I do

And I can go anywhere
even to the moon
'cause everything is so easy with you
It's so easy that I could catch it with a tune
'cause everything is easy
so easy with you
so easy with you

And I (could go anywhere)
I could go anywhere with you
it's so easy with you
It's so easy that I could catch it with a tune
'cause everything is easy
so easy with you
Track Name: Say You Will
Light is slowly fading
the horizon lost in misty smoke
But if we gently close our eyes
There’s still a chance to see

Darkness closing in now
reaching for the things we`ve got
Trying to get a hold of
Our time that`s yet to be
But still we`re standing here tonight
knowing where we came from

Say you will, I know the path to go
Say you will, I know and you know it too
If we stumble somewhere down the road
we just get up
And start all over
Like something that we wanted, not cause' we ought to

The trail is almost hidden
Brush and thickets cover all
We bow our heads and carry on
We're trying not to fall
And we're smiling through the grief
Reaching for a new day

Say you will, that’s still the way to go
Say you will, I know and you know it too
There`s a place where we’ll remember who we were, what we’ve done and what we wished for
I promise you will know when we get there

There`s a place where we’ll remember who we were, what we’ve done and what we wished for
I promise you will know when we get there

So say that you will
