Well the key to my survival
was never in much doubt
the question was how I could keep sane
trying to find a way out

Things were never easy for me
peace of mind was hard to fin
and I needed a place where I could hide
somewhere I could call mine

I didn’t think much about it
til it started happening all the time
soon I was living with the fear everyday
of what might happen that night

I couldn’t stand to hear the
crying of my mother
and I remember when
i swore that, that would be the
Last they’d see of me
And I never went home again

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he’d say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
and you’re no son, no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I’ll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
but where should I go,
and what should I do
you’re no son, you’re no son of mine
but I came here for help, oh I came here for you

Well the years they passed so slowly
I thought about him everyday
what would I do, if we passed on the street
would I keep running away

in and out of hiding places
soon I’d have to face the facts
we’d have to sit down and talk it over
and that would mean going back

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he’d say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
When you walked out, you left us behind
and you’re no son, you’re no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I’ll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
But where should I go and what should I do
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I was looking for you
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine – oh
You’re no son – ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine

I must’ve dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They’re moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today
They say the danger’s gone away
But I can see the fire’s still alight
There burning into the night.

There’s too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

Ooh Superman where are you now
When everything’s gone wrong somehow
The men of steel, the men of power
Are losing control by the hour.

This is the time
This is the place
So we look for the future
But there’s not much love to go round
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

I remember long ago –
Ooh when the sun was shining
Yes and the stars were bright
All through the night
And the sound of your laughter
As I held you tight
So long ago –

I won’t be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We’re not just making promises
That we know, we’ll never keep.

Too many men
There’s too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion.

Now this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Just where our lives are going to.

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I’m wrong, when I thought I was right
s’always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all
I could say day, and you’d say night
tell it’s black when I know that it’s white
always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

I could leave but I won’t go
though my heart might tell me so
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes
but why does it always seem to be
me looking at you, you looking at me
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

Turning me on, turning me off,
making me feel like I want too much
living with you’s just putting me through it all of the time
running around, staying out all night
taking it all instead of taking one bite
living with you’s just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won’t go
well it’d be easier I know
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes
why does it always seem to be
me looking at you, you looking at me
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

Truth is I love you
more than I wanted to
there’s no point in trying to pretend
there’s been no-one who
makes me feel like you do
say we’ll be together till the end

I could leave but I won’t go
it’d be easier I know
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes
so why does it always seem to be
me looking at you, you looking at me
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

But I love you
more than I wanted to
there’s no point in trying to pretend
there’s been no-one who
makes me feel like you do
say we’ll be together till the end

But just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I’m wrong when I thought I was right
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all
Well I could say day, and you’d say night
tell me it’s black when I know that it’s white
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

That’s all

A little piece of something
Falling gently down down down
No one understands you like I do

I’d rather be beside you
Everything we know so well
Tell me what you feel now
Show me what you think of it

It’s not about us anymore
It’s all about the reasons
That we think we’re fighting for
It’s not about hate
It’s not about pain we always feel
I know we have our problems
But we’re not the only ones
It’s not about you it’s not about me
It’s not about anger
It’s more about the loneliness we feel

How can I begin to
Ask for some forgiveness
For all that we have taken
There’s nothing left now

Just a little piece of something
Falling gently down down down
No one understands you no no
Like I do
There’s nothing left now

It’s not about us anymore
It’s all about the reasons
That we think we’re fighting for
It’s not about hate
It’s not about pain we always feel
I know we have our problems
But we’re not the only ones
It’s not about you it’s not about me
It’s not about anger
It’s more about the loneliness we feel

It’s not about us
It’s not about hate
It’s more about the loneliness we feel, can you feel it
It’s not about anger
It’s not about wanting
I know we have our problems
But we’re not the only ones, we’re not the only ones
It’s not about you, it’s not about me…

There is lambswool under my naked feet.
The wool is soft and warm,
– gives off some kind of heat.
A salamander scurries into flame to be destroyed.
Imaginary creatures are trapped in birth on celluloid.
The fleas cling to the golden fleece,
Hoping they’ll find peace.
Each thought and gesture are caught in celluloid.
There’s no hiding in my memory.
There’s no room to avoid.

The crawlers cover the floor in the red ochre corridor.
For my second sight of people, they’ve more lifeblood than before.
They’re moving in time to a heavy wooden door,
Where the needle’s eye is winking, closing in on the poor.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

There’s only one direction in the faces that I see;
It’s upward to the ceiling, where the chamber’s said to be.
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree.
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing they’re free.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

Mild mannered supermen are held in kryptonite,
And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright.
Through a door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight;
It’s the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack.
The eager pack lift up their pitchers – they carry all they lack.
The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack,
And the tickler takes his stickleback.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

I’m a million miles from anywhere, where can I be
Somewhere out on the ocean
Just take a look out on the horizon, what can you see
There’s nothing there for me

I feel shipwrecked, I might as well be shipwrecked
I’m helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can’t believe what you said to me

Even standing on the corner of a busy city street
I still feel so lonely
Why do you say you want to be with me
But the next day say you don’t

I’m shipwrecked, I might as well be shipwrecked
I’m helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can’t believe what you said to me
Without you I feel shipwrecked
But I can’t let it show
A million miles away from anywhere, ooh, ooh, ohh

Is it my imagination
Or is it getting darker, are the waves getting higher
I’m a million miles from anywhere
A million miles from anything I know

You know that’s why I’m shipwrecked
I might as well be shipwrecked
I’m helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can’t believe what you said to me
You know that’s why I’m shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Losing my direction
Please come and rescue me (shipwrecked)
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked…

Stay with me,
My love I hope you’ll always be
Right here by my side if ever I need you
Oh my love

In your arms,
I feel so safe and so secure
Everyday is such a perfect day to spend
Alone with you

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

With the dark,
Oh I see so very clearly now
All my fears are drifting by me so slowly now
Fading away

I can say
The night is long but you are here
Close at hand, oh I’m better for the smile you give
And while I live

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year there will be

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year…

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
[I] just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
« Son, » he said « Grab your things,
I’ve come to take you home. »

To keepin’ silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho’ my life was in a rut
« Till I thought of what I’d say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
« Hey » he said « Grab your things
I’ve come to take you home. »
(Back home.)

When illusion spin her net
I’m never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don’t need a replacement
I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
« Hey » I said « You can keep my things,
they’ve come to take me home. »

Making the most of it
Turning a light up and
Breaking the back of a
Killing the negative
Finding the faith isn’t
As much as I’d like it to be
Follow the path set by
Somebody else’s hand
Craving addiction and
Living in fear of me

But I don’t think that I can change
I’ve been feeling this way for so long now
And this feeling inside still remains
I aint gonna change
Aint gonna change

Bent on destruction I
Have no intention
Black into day into
Dark into Night I go
Blaming myself like I
I’m in control of it
I Turn it around for a
Just for the fun of it
Back to the start I go
I Wish I had learned from you

But I don’t think that I can change
I’ve been feeling this way for so long now
And this feeling inside still remains
I aint gonna change
Aint gonna change

Ray Wilson raconte une histoire courte

You see the face on the TV screen
coming at you every Sunday
see that face on the billboard
that man is me

On the cover of the magazine
there’s no question why I’m smiling
you buy a piece of paradise
you buy a piece of me

I’ll get you everything you wanted
I’ll get you everything you need
don’t need to believe in hereafter
just believe in me

Cos Jesus he knows me
and he knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
oh yes he knows me
and he knows I’m right
and he’s been telling me
everything is alright

I believe in the family
with my ever loving wife beside me
but she don’t know about my girlfriend
or the man I met last night

Do you believe in God
cos that’s what I’m selling
and if you wanna get to heaven
I’ll see you right

You won’t even have to leave your house
or get outta your chair
you don’t even have to touch that dial
cos I’m everywhere

And Jesus he knows me
and he knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
oh yes he knows me
and he knows I’m right
well he’s been telling me
everything’s gonna be alright

Won’t find me practising what I’m preaching
won’t find me making no sacrifice
but I can get you a pocketful of miracles
if you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you
just do as I say, don’t do as I do

I’m counting my blessings,
I’ve found true happiness
cos I’m getting richer, day by day
you can find me in the phone book,
just call my toll free number
you can do it anyway you want
just do it right away

There’ll be no doubt in your mind
you’ll believe everything I’m saying
if you wanna get closer to him
get on your knees and start paying

Cos Jesus he knows me
and he knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
oh yes he knows me
and he knows I’m right
well he’s been telling me
everything’s gonna be alright, alright

Jesus he knows me
Jesus he knows me, you know…

All I need is a TV show, that and the radio
Down on my luck again, down on my luck again
I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
It’s driving me mad just another way of passing the day
I, I get so lonely when she’s not there
I, I, I…

You’re just another face that I know from the TV show
I have known you for so very long I feel you like a friend
Can’t you do anything for me, can I touch you for a while
Can I meet you another day and we will fly away

I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
It’s driving me mad it’s just another way of passing the day
I, I get so lonely when she’s not there
I, I, I…

Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again
Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again I can see another face
Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again I can see another face
Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again

I’ve been thinking a lot these days
And trying to make it work between us
I sense you slowly moving away
Not taking me with you
If aill the years amount to nothing
With the future so unclear
Is this what it was all for ?
Do you want me to leave here ?

I’m done with waking up alone
And tired of being cast aside
Still hurting from your promises
The ones you couldn’t keep and didn’t try to
And maybe I trusted you too much
I’d like to take it all back now
Start over again
Having learned from my mistake

Constantly reminded of you
Everywhere I look I see your face
It’s painted on my mind
I’m still lonely
And constantly reminded of you
I just had to let you know

You’re all that I wanted
I’m not lying to myself
I’m entrusting somebody else
To make it ok
I want to be there with you
I want to hold onto you
Will you stay with me tonight ?

Constantly reminded of you
Everywhere I look 1 see your face
It’s painted on my mind
I’m still lonely
And constantly reminded of you
I just had to let you know

I live ln fear, constantly
I never know why
I don’t even know me
I’m a shadow of myself
To be here, constantly
Following me
I’m gonna make it out

Constantly reminded of you
Everywhere I look I see your face
It’s painted on my mlnd
I’m still lonely
Constantly remlnded of you
I just had to let you know
Constantly reminded of you
You’re painted on my mind
Constantly reminded of you
I just had to let you know

A fading photograph
The one I thought was mine
You’re always there, always there
Are you there ?
