Love songs on the radio 

she looks just like an angel 
when she walks across the room 
she shines tonight her golden light 
is everything I need 

lovers all around her 
she wears them like her jewels 
my friend said shes all he needs 
to feel alive 

love songs on the radio 
your sweetheart lies in bed 
shes dreaming of the things you said 
shes hoping that its meant...

Sarah 

sarah I cant see you 
your hair has grown too long 
youve been away for such a long time 
I just cant find the words 

lonesome fools build lonesome walls 
to hide behind, cry behind 
but Im not one 
no Im not one 

but I cant hide 
Im hurting babe 
but I cant cry 
cos Im not one 

drew you a picture to remember 
threw it on the fire like a piece of pine 
i pictured you mad and I pictured you cold 
pictured you mean and i picture you bold 

but I cant hide 
Im hurting babe 
but I cant cry 

lay your love on me 
lay your love on me 

lay your love on me 
lay your love on me

Tomorrows taken 

there are times when i cant think about the future 
when all my days seem dark and life seems cruel 
ill take another shot and think about you 
cos a bottle of wine is all i have to hold 

but i think its all ive got 
youve taken all i got 
and im sorry to hold your hand 
but i miss you and your life 

theres a full moon in the sky 
it makes me glad 
that theres something pure 
in something that i had 
something good is all i need to feel alive 
a bottle of wine is all i have to hold 

but i think its all ive got 
youve taken all i got 
and im sorry to hold your hand 
but i miss you and your life

Candle song 3 

its christmas again so we lit all the candles 
and we tried to pretend that your room was a palace 
but we cant seem to shake of the fear 
that nothing is different, that no-one has changed 
nothing has changed 

i stand by my lover as she stands by me 
chained to my lover as shes chained to me 

weve been through the past and the pain 
the love that was lost 
and we know all the answers 
weve taken our chances and let them drift by 
its time to be free yeah its time to be free 
standing s close i cant see you at all 

i stand by my lover as she stands by me 
chained to my lover as shes chained to me 

but your books dont say much about 
living your life like a thief 
yeah were handcuffed and chained 
we play games and play them out slowly 

i stand by my lover as she stands by me 
chained to my lover as shes chained to me 

i stand by my lover as she stands by me 
chained to my lover as shes chained to me

Youre beautiful 

velvet eyes are a part of me 
sunset smiles and secret tears 
time my life to a fallen leaf 
watch the spring in all its plumage 

beautiful like the stars at night 
twist and turn before the dawn 
beautiful like the moon at night 
ducks and dives into the sea 

curtains drawn youll miss the light 
youre dawning spell will be broken 
vanished days are hard to find 
half life dreams will not be worth much 

beautiful like the stars at night 
twist and turn before the dawn 
beautiful like the moon at night 
ducks and dives into the sea

Where is the love 

jennifer says that youve changed 
she says that youre talking so strange 
she laughed when i told her id messed 
you around, tried to be kind when i cried 

where is the life that we had 
where is the love 
where is the hand that i held 
where is the love 

sister dont ask me 
im a fool im a liar 
and i cant see home 

i saw you last week when you cried 
you threw me aside with a line 
wish that i could just tell you i care 
i love you i need you and im still scared 
cathy im cold i dont mean to be bold 
but i need to find me again 
im wasted im fried im a fool im a liar 
but i need you to hold me again 

where is the life that we had 
where is the love 
where is the hand that i held 
where is the love 

sister dont ask me 
im a fool im a liar 
and i cant see home 

where is the life that we had 
where is the love 
where is the hand that i held 
where is the love

After all 

show your light to the real world 
they cant see, thay cant see 
show your heart to the whole world 
let them know, let them know 

after all were only looking for a light 
just someone to hold us close 
after all were only looking for a love 
just something to make it right 

show a smile if youre lonely 
dont break your heart, dont break your heart 
just find something to believe in 
and hold it tight, hold it tight 

after all were only looking for a life 
just someone to hold us close 
after all were only looking for a love 
just something to make it right

Pictures 

the picture you gave me seemed so sad today 
secrets still hid behind your eyes 
blinded and foolish we seemed happy then 
i dont believe i realised all your worth 

picture im cold and i cant feel your warmth 
i cant feel anything but i think its all that i 
picture i cant see, one of us must be 
feeling down, feeling down 

you took me in you gave me life 
and you gave me love 
ive paid you back with disregard and lies 
if i love you now i loved you then 
if i miss you now i missed you then 
and im sorry, so sorry 

picture im cold and i cant feel your warmth 
i cant feel anything but i think its all that i 
picture i cant see, one of us must be 
feeling down, feeling down 

and i feel alright 
im feeling just fine 
feeling just fine

Mercy 

your virgin light is a golden flame 
but its burning its burning fast now 
you crossed the line and you made a choice 
you hurt the one you love now he needs you 

mercy i cant see your heart 
i cant feel your love 
mercy i cant see your heart 
i cant feel your love 

your life is like a song youre living like a fool 
youre living like a fool but i cant tell you right 
youre taking all the time youre taking all my time 
youre living like a fool 
and i cant tell you right 

mercy i cant see your heart 
i cant feel your love 
mercy i cant see your heart 
i cant feel your love
