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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
