1. Mirror Man Mirror Man

The water shines
A pebble skips across the face
A dozentime
Then disappears
Not a trace left behind
The thrower turns and walks away
A change of mind
Another start
A brand new day

You know IÕll change
If change is what you require
Your every wish
Your every dream
Hope, desire

Here comes the mirror man
Says heÕs a people fan
Here comes the mirror man

And if it seems
IÕm not the one you usedto know
Our little friendship
Left behind not long ago
DonÕt feel too hurt
As distance heals the strongest pain
Things are much better now
And just a nagging doubt remains

You know IÕll change
If change iswhat you require
Your every wish
Your every dream
Hope, desire
2. (Keep Feeling) Fascination (Keep Feeling) Fascination

If it seems a little time is needed
Decisions to be made
The good advice of friends unheeded
The best of plansmislaid

Just looking for a new direction
In an old familiar way
The forming of a new connection
To study or to play

And so the conversation turned
Until the sun went down
And many fantasies were learned
On that day

Keep feeling fascination
Passion burning
Love so strong
Keep feeling fascination
Looking learning
Moving on

Well the truth may need some
Re-arranging
Stories to be told
And plain to see the facts are changing
No meaning left to hold

And so the conversation turned
Until the sun went down
And many fantasies were learned
On thatday

And so the conversation turned
Until the sun went down
And many fantasies were learned
On that day
3. The Sound Of The Crowd The Sound Of The Crowd
(Oakey/Burden)

Put your hand in a party wave
Pass around
Make a shroud pulling combs through a backwash frame
Find the copies in a carbon mount
Pass around
Stroke a pocket with a print of a laughing sound

Get around town, get around town
Where the people look good
Where the music is loud
Get around town
No need to stand proud
Add your voice to the sound of the crowd

The shades from a pencil peer
Pass around
A fold in an eyelid brushed with fear
The lines on a compact guide
Pass around
A hat with alignment worn insde

Chorus :

Get in line now, get in line now
Stay in time with the rhythm and rhyme
Get around town, get around town
Where the people look good
Where the music is loud
Get around town
No need to stand proud
Addyour voice to the sound of the crowd

(Repeat chorus twice more)

@SONG: Darkness (Wright)

Chorus :

In darkness
Where my dreams are all too clear
Darkness, darkness
Filled with all the sounds of fear
Ihear voices (don't turn out the light)
Calling faraway
I see shadows (don't turn out the light)
Moving, changing shape

And the clock stops
As darkness closes in
I hesitate but it's too late
I scream and scream again

I hear colours black and red
I see sounds that fill my head
I'll never read those books again

(Chorus)

Don't turn out the light (don't turn out the light)
Or I'll go over the edge
Don't turn out the light (don't turn out the light)
Or I'll go over the edge

(Chorus)

I hear voices (don't turn out the light)
Calling faraway
I seeshadows (don't turn out the light)
Moving, changing shape
4. The Lebanon The Lebanon
(Callis/Oakey)

She dreams of nineteen sixty-nine
Before the soldiers came
The life was cheap on bread and wine
And sharing meant no shame
She is awakened by the screams
Of rockets flying from nearby
And scared she clings onto her dreams
To beat the fear that she might die

And who will have won
When the soldiers have gone
From theLebanon
The Lebanon

Before he leaves the camp he stops
He scans the world outside
And where there used to be some shops
Is where the snipers sometimes hide
He left his home the week before
He thought he'd be like the police
But now he finds he is at war
"Weren't we supposed to keep the peace"

And who will have won
When the soldiers have gone
From the Lebanon
The Lebanon
The Lebanon
From the Lebanon

I must be dreaming
It canÕt be true
I must be dreaming
It can't be true

And who will have won
When the soldiers have gone?
From the Lebanon
The Lebanon
The Lebanon
From the Lebanon
5. Human HUMAN
Human League


Come on, baby, dry your eyes
Wipe your tears
Never like to see you cry
Won't you please forgive me?

I wouldn'tever try to hurt you
I just needed someone to hold me
To fill the void while you were gone
To fill this space of emptiness

I'm only human
Of flesh and blood I'm made
Human
Born to make mistakes

So manynights I longed to hold you
So many times I looked and saw your face
Nothing could change the way I feel
No-one else could ever take your place

I'm only human
Of flesh and blood I'm made
Human
Born to makemistakes

I am just a man

Please forgive me

The tears I cry aren't tears of pain
They're only to hide my guilt and shame
I forgiveyou now I ask the same of you
While we were apart I was human too

I'm only human
Of flesh and blood I'm made
I am just a man
Human
Born to make mistake
6. Don't You Want Me Don't You Want Me

You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don't forget it'sme who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too

Chorus :

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you won't see me
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me
It's much too late to find
You think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don't you want me baby? Don't you want me oh
Don't you want me baby? Don't you want me oh

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I'd find amuch better place
Either with or without you
The five years we have had have been such good times
I still love you
But now I think it's time I lived my life on my own
I guess it's just what I must do

(Chorus)

Don't you want me baby? Don't you want me oh
Don't you want me baby? Don't you want me oh

(Repeat four times and fade)
7. Being Boiled Being Boiled

Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
Little people like your offspring
Boiled alive for some gods stocking
Buddha's watching, Buddha's waiting

Just because the kid's an orphan
Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
People don't forget this torture
Just because you call her mother
Doesn't mean that she's your better

Once more with the voice of Buddha
He'll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim

Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
He'll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim

Listen to the voice of Buddha (repeat three times)
8. Love Action (I Believe In Lve) Love Action (I Believe In Love)

When you're in love
You know you'rein love
No matter what you try to do
You might as well resign yourself
To what you're going through
If you're a hard man or if you're a child
It still might get to you
Don't kid yourself you've seen it all before
A million mouths have said that too

I've had my hard times (hardtimes) in the past
I've been a husband and a lover too
I've lain alone and cried at night
Over what love made me do
And the loved ones who let me down
And couldn't share my point of view
But this is Phil talking
I want to tell you
What I've found to be true

Chorus :

I loveyour love action
Lust's just a distraction
No talking, just looking
Watching your love action

I believe, I believe what the old man said
Though I know that there's no lord above
I believe in me, I believe inyou
And you know I believe in love
I believe in truth though I lie a lot
I feel the pain from the push and shove
No matter what you put me through
I'll still believe in love
And I say

(Repeat chorus three times and fade)
9. Louise Louise
(Callis/Oakey/Wright)

When he saw her getting of the bus
Itseemed to wipe away the years
Her face was older, just a little rough
But her eyes were still so clear
He drank his coffee and he hurried out
Across before she walked away
Then he approached her like a little child
Too scared for what he had to say

"Hello, Louise,
Remember me?
Now should we part
Or stay awhile?
As if we were still lovers"

She took a moment just to recognise
The man sheÕd known so well before
And as he started to apologise
Lose any bitterness she bore
She gentlyput her finger on his lips
To let him know she understood
And with her suit case standing on the floor
Embraced him like a lover would

Hetold Louise
"You look so good
ItÕs just you see
You make me feel
Asif we were still lovers"

[Spoken:]
It's not always true that time heals all wounds.
There are wounds that you don't wanna heal,
the memories of something really good,
something truly real, that you never found again.

And though they talked for just a little time
Before she said she had to go
He saw the meeting as a tiny sign
That told him all he had to know

And so Louise
Waved from the bus
And as she left
She gave that smile
As if they were still lovers
10. Open Your Heart Open Your Heart

And when it hurts you know they love to tell you
How they warned you
They say "Don't be surprised at someone's lies"
Theythink they taunt you
But if you can stand the test
You know your worst is better than their best

And so you stand here with the years ahead
Potentially calling
With open heart or with a spirit dead
You walk on

Chorus :

Lies the reason
Faith or treason
Playing a part
Endconcealing
Try revealing
Open your heart
Dare to feel
Take the chance
Make the deal

Being an island
Shying from trying
Seems the easyway
Such an easy way
But there's no future without tears

(Chorus)

But if you can stand the test
You know your worst is better than their best

(Chorus)

Lies the reason
Faith or treason
Playing a part
End concealing
Try revealing
Open your heart

(Repeat last sectionthree times and fade)
11. Love Is All That Matters Love Is All That Matters

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters

Got this beautiful situation
I've finally found out
What life's about
Want to talk about it
In my conversation
Going to tell the world
Going to sing it
From the highest mountain top

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love isall that matters

Every person pledge allegiance
All our efforts
To one common cause
Take a minute to improve a life
Form a legion
That's united for a love cause

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters

March

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Loveis all that matters

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful

After all is saidand done
Love is all that matters
12. Life On Your Own Life On Your Own
(Callis/Oakey/Wright)

Winter is approaching
ThereÕs snow upon the ground
ItÕs good of you to visit me
IÕm glad you came around
I donÕt know how you found me
I didnÕt let you know
I onlymoved to this address
About a week ago
I guess you think I ran out
But thatÕs not true
Other people settle down
I never do
I always have to move on
Just have to go
IÕve often wondered why that is
IÕd like to say but I just donÕt know

I guess you always wanted
Life on your own
I guess you always wanted
Life on your own

Up here the summerÕs shorter
And winterÕs very cold
IÕm looking forward to the peace
My lonely life will hold
IÕm really glad you came here
Thank you forthe talk
ItÕs funny how my problem stopped
When we went for a walk
Standing here together
Means so much
I wonÕt forget your confidence
I wonÕt forget your touch
You know IÕll come to see you
Passing through
WeÕll always be a world apart
IÕll travel on but I will be true

I guess you always wanted
Life on your own
I guess you always wanted
Life on your own
I guess you always wanted
Life on your own
I guess you always wanted
Life on your own
