Je suis très embété pour dire quoi que ce soit de ce disque… Je l’ai acheté le jour de sa sortie, par fidélité pour Mike… Et je ne l’ai écouté que quelques jours après mais seulement la moitié… Je n’ai accroché à rien, et je l’ai oublié. Oublié carrément de finir de l’écouter. Ce n’est qu’en milieu d’année 2002 que je me suis dit qu’il faudrait quand même que je le finisse. Et je l’ai remis, et je me suis forcé à aller jusqu’au bout…

Tracklist

(Rutherford/Carrack)


Whenever I stop and think about it
There’s still a question in the back of
my mind
Whenever I go, whatever I do
You know it’s with me everyday
Whatever you say you need to
understand
I never want to know that feeling again
No matter how hard I try to forget
I can’t help being the way I am

Well I want you to listen
And I want you to see
I want you back here with me
Just like it used to be
Everything will be easy everything
will be fine
Cos I’ll be different this time

Whenever I stop and think about it
There’s still a question in the back
of my mind
Whenever I go whatever I do
You know it’s with me everyday
Wherever you are I hope you
understand
I’m always waiting for a chance to
make amends
Cos I realise however I try
I’ll never find someone like you

Well I want you to listen
And I want you to see
I want you back here with me
Just like it used to be
Everything will be easy
everything will be fine
Cos I’ll be different this time

Whenever I’m lost I’ll think about you
Try to remind myself how good it can be
Maybe in time you’ll come to realise
Just what you really mean to me

Whenever I stop and think about it
There’s still a question in the back
of my mind
Whenever I go, whatever I do
You know it’s with me everyday

Whenever I stop and think about it
There’s still a question in the back
of my mind
Whenever I go, whatever I do
You know it’s with me everyday

Whenever I stop, stop and think about it
I’m always waiting for a chance to
make amends
Cos I realise however I try
I’ll never find someone like you

(Rutherford/Carrack)


As the night comes down
Darkness slowly descends
I am lost and alone again
Now that you’ve gone

As the shadows fall
There’s no place to hide
From the pain I feel inside
Now that you’ve gone
Every thought of you, every memory
Is a ghost that is hauting me
Now that you’ve gone

Now that you’ve gone
How can I go on?
I can’t believe, this could happen to me
Now that you’ve gone
I’ve got to find a way
I need to know life goes on
Now that you’ve gone

There’s a heavy cloud
Hanging over me
It’s part of the legacy
Now that you’ve gone
Everything I do
Seems to make no sense
And I’m losing all my confidence
Now that you’ve gone

Now that you’ve gone
How can I go on
I can’t believe, this could happen to me
Now that you’ve gone
I’ve got to find a way
I need to know life goes on
Now that you’ve gone

I’m just a shadow of the man I used to be
Before you turned me inside out
Your love was all that ever meant
a thing to me
It’s something I can’t live without

No, No
Now that you’ve gone
Losing my way
Don’t let me see
Now that you’ve gone

Now that you’ve gone
How can I go on?
I can’t believe, this could happen to me
Now that you’ve gone
I’ve got to find a way
I can’t believe, this could happen to me
Now that you’ve gone
I’ve got to find a way
I need to know life goes on
Now that you’ve gone

Oh, Oh
Now that you’ve gone
Can’t get away
Oh, Baby
Now that you’ve gone
I’ve got to find a way
Baby
Now that you’ve gone
To letting it go
Baby I need to know
Now that you’ve gone
Cos I need to know
Letting me go
Now that you’ve gone
No matter baby

(Rutherford/Carrack/Young)

So he buys her flowers and
diamond rings
Tries to turn her head around in a
million ways
I realise that it’s hard to resist
his attention
But she just ignores the kinda things
he says

She’s an ordinary girl
She don’t wanna change the world
She still loves me all she can
I’m her ordinary man
If I had the chance to start all over
I know she’s the kind I’ll still be
looking for

Just an ordinary girl
She don’t wanna change the world
And she’s givin’ all she can
To her ordinary man

I don’t know why, why she should
make me feel so fine
I couldn’t give an explanation if I tried

She don’t fool around, given temptation
Even though I know he’d like to
steal her away
Every time he tries, to his frustration
She just turns her head and looks
the other way

She’s an ordinary girl
She don’t wanna change the world
And she’s givin’ all she can
To her ordinary man
Just an ordinary girl
She don’t wanna change the world
And I give her all I can
I’m her ordinary man

Ordinary girl
I don’t wanna change her world
cso she loves me all she can
Just an ordinary man
She’s an ordinary girl
She don’t wanna change the world
And she’s doin’ all she can
For her ordinary man

(Rutherford/Robertson)

I read all the philosophies
The theory ideologies
They leave me cold
I sit around at tables talking
long into the night and when we’re
walking home
You take me by the hand
You say you understand
And this is all the light I need

I know we’ve had our ups and downs
I play the fool I play the clown
Just like a man
I think it wouldn’t be so bad
If only you believed I had some
kind of plan
But as the evening fades
You say you’re going to stay

And this is all the light I need
And these are all the clothes
that keep me warm
You come to me and then
You love me once again
And this is all the light I need

When we found the going tough
You always seemed to have enough
To pull us through
Although I never mention it
I often wonder how I’d manage
without you
You say that in the end
You’ll always be my friend

And this is all the light I need
And these are all the clothes that
keep me warm
You come to me and then
You love me once again
And this is all the light I need

You say that in the end
You’ll always be my friend

And this is all the light I need
And these are all the clothes that
keep me warm
You come to me and then
You love me once again
And this is all the light I need

This is all the light I need
And these are all the clothes that
keep me warm
This is all the light I need
And these are all the clothes
that keep me warm
This is all the light I need

(Rutherford/Robertson)

What will you do
What will you do if you’re left
on your own
What will you do
What will you do when there’s
no one at home?

What will you do when I’m gone
What will you say when you’re out
with our friends
Will you just play them along
And say it was better we quit in the end

What will you do
What will you do with the life
that we made
What will you say
What will you say when the memory fades?
What will you do when I’m gone
Will you admit that I’m not coming back
Will you just never let on?
You have to face it, it’s nearly a fact
What will you do
What will you do?

We said we’d always be together
You said we’d have the longest run
We found that nothing lasts forever
But you’ll always be the one

What will you do
What will you do here when
I’m not around
What will you do
What will you do on the days
when you’re down
What will you do when I’m gone
When I’ll be wandering out of this world
Will you be acting so strong
Will I be losing the fight for this girl?

What will you do
What will you do when it’s over and done
What will you say?
Say it was good when we played
it for fun
What will you do
What will you do when you’re
no longer mine
What will you do
Will you be laughing pretending it’s fine
What will you do
What will you do with the rest
of your life?

(Rutherford/Robertson)

Welcome to my little island
Though it’s not much to look at I know
But it’s somewhere to come
When things have slowed down
You can stretch out and let yourself go

Welcome to my little island
Just relax get away from it all
When the peolple and crowds
Get too noisy and loud
You can slip out and over the wall
Just give my little island a call

When I came to my little island
Well I wasn’t too certain at first
Far away from my friends
And the things I depend on
I guess I had feared for the worst
Now all my reservations reversed

Come on over to my little spot
Where it’s never too cool and it’s
never too hot
You can dance on the beach
You can reach for the stars in the sky

Welcome to my little island
This is paradise you can’t deny
And we all journey here
When we’ve conquered our fears
Are you willing to give it a try?
Then wave your little island goodbye

Come on over to my little spot
Where it’s never too cool and it’s
never to hot
You can dance on the beach
You can reach for the stars in the sky
Welcome to my little island

(Rutherford/Robertson)

Don’t ask me why should it always be
So hard to let my feelings show
I’ve thought it over a thousand times
Why you didn’t leave, I’ll never know

Now I assume you can read my mind
I don’t understand why you’re confused
I know you’re making a big misstake
If you really believe you’re being used

I’ve never really let you know just
what you mean to me
But how I wish you’d let me try again

If I could see you now
I’d open up my heart
And tell you everything
I should have all along
If I could see you now

Sometimes I feel I could lose my mind
If you don’t believe me when I say
I’ll do my best to do right this time
I’m trying to change everyday
I’ve never really let you know just
what you mean to me
But how I wish you’d let me try again

If I could see you now
I’d open up my heart
And tell you everything
I should have all along
If I could see you now

I’d tell you everything that’s in my heart
I only wish that I could see you now
I’d open up my heart
Tell you everything
I should have all along
If I could see you now
I’d open up my heart
If I could see you now

(Rutherford/Neil)

When I get over you
I’ll be who I want to be
I’ll sleep where I want to sleep
And laugh at your memory

When I get over you
I’m not gonna need a friend
I’m not gonna tell the truth
I’ll never do that again
You’ll never see me cry
You’re gonna see something new
You’re not gonna watch me die
When I get over you

When I get over you
I won’t make the same mistake
I don’t wanna hear your voice
I don’t wanna see your face
I know it’s all in the past
And it’s long overdue
I know that I won’t look back
When I get over you

Did somebody teach you how to lie
And take what you’re feeling from
your eyes
It’s a sad disguise
Take it off and say goodbye

You’ll never see me cry
You’re gonna see something new
You’re not gonna watch me die
When I get over you

Did somebody teach you how to lie
And take what you’re feeling from
your eyes
It’s a sad disguise
Take it off and say goodbye

When I get over you
I’ll be who I want to be
I’ll sleep where I want to sleep
And laugh at your memory

When I get over you
I’m not gonna need a friend
I’m not gonna tell the truth
I’ll never do that again

When I get over this
I won’t make the same mistake
I don’t wanna hear your voice
I don’t wanna see your face

(Rutherford/Carrack)

Still waters always run so deep
I’ve heard you cry in the night
And talk in your sleep

Why would you want to
Keep it all inside?
Now you’re alone
With nothing but your pride

If only you’d listened to me
Cos I still want you now
I don’t want to be free
If only you listened to me
Cos I still feel the loss
And it won’t let me be

I’ve tried talking long into the night
but nothing that I tried to say
Ever came out right

There’s no point in crying
My tears have run dry
I hope that you’re satisfied

If only you’d listened to me
Cos I still want you now
I don’t want to be free
If only you listened to me
Cos I still feel the loss
And it won’t let me be

(Rutherford/Robertson)

I know I let you believe
You weren’t important to me
And now it’s safe to assume
That you’ll be leaving me soon

Well I won’t analyse it
I know I’ve been a pain
But I must emphasise
My need to explain

I’m asking for the last time
Is there anything
I can do to change your mind
I’m asking for the last time
Before you walk away
From this heart of mine

Don’t say we’re over and done
Before we’ve even begun
Maybe you’ve made a mistake
Don’t leave me for heavens sake

But I won’t agonise
If you leave me behind
But still I recognise there’s doubt in
your mind

That’s why I’m asking for the last time
Is there anything
I can do to change your mind
I’m asking for the last time
Before you walk away
From this heart of mine

No I won’t agonise
If you leave me behind
Cos I still recognise there’s doubt in
your mind

That’s why I’m asking for the last time
Is there anything
I can do to change your mind
I’m asking for the last time
Before you walk away
From this heart of mine

I’m asking for the last time
Is there anything
I can do to change your mind

I’m asking for the last time
Before you walk away
From this heart of mine

(Rutherford/Carrack/Young)

Always listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart

Don’t make the same mistakes
The ones that I have made
The consequence could lead you to an
early grave
This is my best advice
To one so young and brave
Always listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart

We live in stressful times
It’s hard to make ends meet
Sometimes it’s hard to know
The way to point your feet
Life, sometimes devious
Can fool you with deceit
Be sure to listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart

It’s only just begun
Your precious life
One day you’ll identify right from wrong
So don’t fail to be strong

Always listen, listen to your heart
Always listen, listen to your heart

Never tell a lie honest from the start
Just take good care of it
Don’t let it fall apart
Be sure to listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart

It’s only just begun
Your precious life
One day you’ll identify right from wrong
So don’t fail to be strong

Always listen, listen to your heart
Be sure you don’t just let it fall apart

Be sure to listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart
Be sure to listen to your heart
Be sure to listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart
Always listen, listen to your heart
Be sure you don’t just let it fall apart
Always listen to your heart
Be sure to listen to your heart
Always listen to your heart
Be sure to listen to your heart

(Rutherford/Carrack)

Did you see me coming
Did you see I was there for the ride
Was I wasting time when I thought that I
Was with somebody with nothing to hide

Do you think about it
Did the thought even enter your head
Was it by design like the perfect crime
Did you mean every word that you said

I’ve tried putting myself in your place and
I still feel the same
You’ve been looking to find an excuse
There’s nobody else you can blame

Did you see me coming
Could you see me a good mile away
Did I talk to much
Did I laugh to loud
Was there something that I didn’t say
Can I tell you something
Just in case you don’t already know
Well it’s crossed my mind
More than once that I
Should have left a long time ago

Sometimes you make it look easy
To somebody like me
One day you’re gonna turn around
And I’ll be a bad memory

Did you see me coming
Did you see I was there for the ride
Was I wasting time when I thought that I
Was with somebody with nothing to hide

Do you think about it
Did the thought even enter your head
Was it by design like the perfect crime
Did you mean every word that you said

I’ve tried putting myself in your place and
I still feel the same
You’ve been looking to find an excuse
There’s nobody else you can blame

(Rutherford/Robertson)

Look across at dreamland
Can you see the light
Look in the reflection
For something bright
Look up to the heavens
Can you see the stars?
You know you’re here
But you don’t know who you are

Look across at dreamland
Tell me what you see
Can you see the river
Flowing free?
Gaze upon the water
Can you see the truth?
You know it’s here
But don’t know if it’s you
you may be someone
Who’s needing someone to love
To love

Look across at dreamland
Can you see yourself?
Can you tell there’s magic
With someone else?
Look up to the heavens
That’s the mystery
It’s up there, it’s here
With you and me
If you’re with someone
Who gives you someone to love
To love

Look across at dreamland
Can you see the stars?
You know you’re here
But you don’t know who you are

Look across at dreamland
Can you see the stars?
You know you’re here
But you don’t know who you are
