FALLING FOR YOU (5.38) (McKella) I’m calling I’m falling for you. I’m falling I’m calling for you. Calling to you can you hear? I’ve got to make my feelings clear. Chorus: Because you are the warmth in the night You are that torch shining light You are that bright star that shines And I can’t get you out of my mind. I’m turning I’m twisting for you I’m turning I’m burning for you I want for your body and soul To join mine and make our liven whole Chorus: Because you are the warmth in the night You are that torch shining light You are that bright afar that shines And I can’t get you out of my mind. And when I hear breathe close next to me I’m hoping you will now find Comfort and tranquility All of those things you give to me Chorus: Because you are the warmth in the night You are that torch shining light You are that bright star that shines And I can’t get you out of my mind. I’m turning, I’m twisting, I’m calling, I’m falling, I’m turning, I’m burning for you. I’m calling, I’m fallen, I’m turning, n’ twisting, I’m calling, I’ve fallen for...

INTO THE ETHERS (7.38) (McKella /McDonald/Collier) Into the ether, Into the sea, World within waters, Aa you net yourself free. Into the ether, Into the deep, World within waters, As you enter their keep You sink in your asleep As you sink in your asleep as you sink in your sleep as you sink in your sleep as you sink in your sleep as you sink in your sleep
3.
ALL SAID AND DONE (4.21) (McKella) I didn’t see the warnings, I didn’t see the signs Too busy running round chasing spent time You know I didn’t mean it I never meant it that way I didn’t hear your calls, didn’t hear your sighs To busy running round I never realized You know I never meant it I never meant it that way. Chorus: And I know I said you know I never want to hurt you And I know I said you know I never want to lose you I didn’t see the stress, I didn’t see the strain I didn’t even mean if when I left you with blame You know I didn’t mean it I never meant if that way. I never heard your cry, never saw your tears You know if can’t be me that is adding fears You know I never meant it I never meant it that way. Chorus: And I know I said you know I never want to hurt you And I know I said you know I never want to lose you I didn’t mean to scream, I didn’t mean to shout I don’t even recall how thin all came about You know I didn’t meant it Didn’t mean it that way. I didn’t mean to do it, the reason you decide That I must be some kind of Jekyll & Hyde You know I didn’t mean it Didn’t mean it that way. Chorus: And I know I said you know I never want to hurt you And I know I said you know I never want to lose you And I know I said you know I never want to hurt you And I know I said you know I never want to lose you

SHOWTIME (5.08) (McKella) See another image on the TV screen Images of chaos, a reporter on the scene See another picture, front-page news Another man of power and all he has abused. Reams and reams of paper rolling off in print Telling us the scandal — watch a politician sink And time and time again he said it wasn’t true But somewhere down the corridors somebody knew. Chorus: Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking it’s showtime once again. Muslims and Christians’ ‘bigging’ up themselves About to give each other just a few more rounds in hell Evil dictators who think they’re gonna fall So they ask their people to answer to their Gods call Further to the West a high wind blows Scientists are saying global warming’s on the go Temperatures are soaring, sea level riding high No need to analyze we know the reason why. Chorus: Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking it’s showtime once again. High above the stratosphere a satellite glows Probing the Universe and beaming down more shows And scientists are asking if there’s life out there If you were an Alien, now would you really dare? News flash report on a sad occasion Was it just an accident or was it assassination Millions of flowers in nineteen ninety seven As they sent her body up to television heaven. Chorus: Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking it’s showtime once again. Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking now here we go again Hear them talking it’s showtime once again.

05 - Glow 06:45
GLOW (6.46) (McKella) I can see you now and I can hear you now I feel the magic coming from your heart. Can you sense it now and to enhance it now So we are strong as we, as we depart. Chorus: I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you grow and grow. And when I’m feeling down you pull me off the ground I feel your magic coming through to me. And with your magic voice, give us a better choice So we are strong as we continue our journey. Chorus: I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you grow and grow. I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you flow and flow. Can you see me now, I’d like to tell you how I’d like to tell you how you pulled me through. Can you see me now and can you hear me now I’d like to give that magic back to you. Chorus: I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you grow and grow. I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you flow and flow. I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you grow and grow. I turn around, I look around, I see you glow I turn around, I see the magic in you flow and flow.

700 Feet (BASE JUMPER) (5.36) (McKella /McDonald) I’m standing at the top. At the top of this tall building Parachute, Parachute on my back Feel the wind cooling my sweat on my forehead Looking down, looking for a place to land. Chorus: Look down you know it really ain’t that far to go Look down you know it really ain’t that far. Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go Look down with 700 feet to go. I’m looking down Looking around at these city lights Motor cars moving around like ants One leap is all it really takes all it takes to go I feel adrenaline start to flow. Chorus: Look down you know it really ain’t that far to go Look down you know it really ain’t that far. Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go Look down with 700 feet to go. I’m at the top Standing at the top of this tall building Parachute, Parachute on my back Jump down at ten meters per second, per second fall Cord rip, feel the strings haul me back. Chorus: Look down you know it really ain’t that far to go Look down you know it really ain’t that far. Look down you know it realty an’t that far to go Look down with 700 feet to go. Watch me fall. Watch me fall. Watch me fall. Watch me fall.

THESE DAYS (7.20) (McKella/McDonald/Collier) Everywhere Everywhere I go Everywhere You seem to know No matter how fast No matter how slow The time The place Mile by mile Recorded on camera Entered on a data base file Everything Everything I say Every statement then relayed To your listening, listening banks On tape, on tape, on tapes all blank Getting stored up With another conversation Another statement Another street citation These days, these days These days, these days Medical history Age and Sex Political leanings How far left How many exams that I’ve failed How much time spent in jail Electronic tagging CCTV Checks on occupation Complete CV Ethnic origin Sexuality Which religion Bank credibility All hidden in my ‘Smart Card’ Hidden in my ID All hidden in my ‘Smart Card’ Hidden in my ID These days, these days. These days, these days

THESE DAYS (Reprise) (2.08) (McKella/McDonald/Collyer) I dream of the day When we can meet far away and all alone On our own with no one else looking on... I dream of the day When we can meet far away and all alone On our own with no one else looking on... But These days These days These days These days
