Je regrette

This is what you see
And that’s what you get
Musta been something
Houdini once said
She had sex appeal
She was made in France
Almost made a deal
With the devil right there
I was just a fool
Paris by night
Je t’adore mon amour sure to make ‘em cry

God knows. Who knows
Somewhere there’s a place like heaven
I know. You know
It was never gonna happen
Only going for nothing but between
Your pretty legs
I’m sorry

Je regrette. Je regrette
New York on the other side of the globe
My heart’s dyin’. My mind’s stone cold
Je regrette. Je regrette
New York on the other side of the globe
My heart’s dyin’.
And my mind’s stone cold

Stone cold, Stone cold, Stone cold

So I make a call
Four hours ago
There’s a time difference
I’m tryin’ to ignore
Somethin’ here happening
Like something never before
I only wanna see your face again
I want your body next to me
Tell me how it sounds in French
I’m sorry

God knows. Who knows
Somewhere there’s a place like heaven
I know. You know
It was never gonna happen
I was only going for nothing but between
Your pretty legs
I’m sorry

Je regrette. Je regrette
New York on the other side of the globe
My heart’s dyin’. My mind’s stone cold
Je regrette. Je regrette
New York on the other side of the globe
My heart’s dyin’. And my mind’s stone cold
Stone cold

 

That’s why I believe in her

She’s always right even if she’s wrong
(Just) like any other girl in the world
There’s no fight she’s too bright
She gets my feet back on the ground

She got no problem with self control
But when I leave it’s please don’t go
Tell the thruth lyin’s no use
She knows ho to take a good man down

That’s why I believe in her
That’s why I believe in her
That’s why I believe
That’s why I believe……….in her

She’s a queen and she wears her crown
With a dignity so profound
On you knees enemies
Joan of Arc just rode into town

That’s why I believe in her
That’s why I believe in her
That’s why I believe
That’s why I believe……….in her

It may as come as no surprise
A wolf a sheep in disguise
Beam me up let me drop
She always knows when you’re messin’ up

How many fingers do I need to cross
Always turns out she’s the boss
Beautiful animal
She knows how to spell incredible

That’s why I believe in her
That’s why I believe in her
That’s why I believe
That’s why I believe……….in her

 

My lips are sealed

I can tell you any city
By the perfume and the smell
I know the path that leads to heaven
And the highway that ends in hell
The face behind the thief
Too terrified to tell
You can ask me any question
Beg me on your knees

But my lips are sealed
My lips are sealed

You can say stand and deliver
But I never would give in
You can beg me on your knees
But my lips are sealed
My lips are sealed
Sealed
My lips are sealed
I got a force field and a gladiator shield
You can torture me
But I will never yield
My lips are sealed

Here l am dancing high in the clouds
Don’t say please
You can smile and consider
But my lips are sealed

We can talk about the water
Blue and green and scary deep
Like love inside a heart
That’s been bitten for blood by teeth
And the colour of the river
Like a poisonous snake in heat
You can say stand and deliver
You can beg me on your knees

My lips are sealed
Sealed

And in this barren land of choices
Where l got nothing to hide but myself
I got nowhere to hide from myself
While time has got a strangle hold
On moments of the years gone by
And then you say
And then you say
My lips are sealed
I got a force field and a gladiator shield
You can torture me
But I will never yield

My lips are sealed
My lips are sealed
I got a force field and a gladiator shield
You can torture me
But I will never yield
My lips are sealed
(repeat)

 

Did I make you up

Dreamy eyes sleepy face
Did I make you up
Tabasco flavoured kisses spicy and hot
In the back room of my favourite shady club
You walked in and you ordered poison on the rocks
Leaving traces in the night
Empty glasses and a long way gone

Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up
Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up
Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up
Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up

Dreamy eyes sleepy face
I just woke up
From a dream or a nightmare
Am I in love
I fix some coffee
I take a shower
Try to get in touch
With my face in the mirror
Till I’ve had enough
Forgot your name said goodbye
You said good luck
Did I make it up

Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up
Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up
Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up
Did I make you, did I make you, did I make you up

Just had a phonecall no voice no nothin’ at all
Am I hallucinatin’ again
With my runaway imagination
Leading me into temptation
Your train just left the station like a ghost
Where am I

When love is real you’re not alone
(repeat)

 

Come on home

The silence deep inside of me
Lies waiting for your song
Your voice the sound of nicotine
Open blue and lost
In shadow of the cross
In heaven you belong
Will I remember
Will I forget
Will l forever feel your love old friend

I’m givin’ up it’s runnin’ late
Heard enough whisper through the rye
I’m doin’ away with the ghost in a misfit’s eye
I’m drinkin’ luck from an empty bottle
Craven’ love on a lukewarm night
The memory of your picture black and white
And it’s time to see the sky
When it opens up
Come on home
Come on home
Come on home
Come on home

And silence speaks of blood that creeps
Preying on the young
Your voice the sound of nicotine
Open blue and lost
The dice one final toss
In heaven you belong
Will I remember
Will I forget
Will l forever feel your love old friend

I’m givin’ up it’s runnin’ late
Heard enough whisper through the rye
I’m doin’ away with the ghost in a misfit’s eye
Drinkin’ luck from an empty bottle
Craven’ love on a lukewarm night
The memory of your picture black and white
And it’s time to see the sky
When it opens up
Come on home
Come on home
Come on home
Come on home
