100° And Rising 

Lyrics

 

Where Did We Go Wrong

 

 

It wasn't my intention to cause you this pain
But here we are, a bridge too far
I've left you here to wonder if it all was a game
How can it be, these changes in me

 

Nothing lasts forever, that's true
Take a look at the world that we once knew
Gone are the feelings that once we could hold on to

 

Chorus:
Try to forgive me, find a way to believe me
I'm hurting the same way too
Oh I know it's not easy, but baby believe me
We've been fighting this war far too long
Where did we go wrong

 

I tried to write a letter, but it's better this way
Here in this place, face to face
Let's not forsake the future in view of the past
So little gained and far too much pain

 

Trying to compromise our points of view
We leave each other feeling blue
Gone are the feelings that once would have seen us through

 

Chorus

 

The simple truth is clear to see
Time to surrender, let it be
There's nothing here for us to hold on to

 

Chorus

Good Love

 

If you believe that you get out what you put in
You better move on 'cos there's no time to fool around
All the right intentions & promises don't mean a thing
If you can't get the job done
If you insist on making life a compromise
You're gonna wake up to find your world has come undone
All the right intentions & promises are never enough
And soon you find it all gone

 

Now time has come, make up your mind to be real
Baby, baby, baby

 

Chorus:
Good love, precious & gifted
Can't stand waitin' forever
Good love, no greater feelin'
No one could ever deny
Stop wastin' all the good love

 

You're takin' your time comin' to let me know
Now you better decide 'cos there's a limit to your games
Let your intuition lead you on
Follow the signs to the place you belong
If you believe that you get out what you put in
You better move on 'cos there's no time to fool around
All the right intentions & promises don't mean a thing
If you can't get the job done

 

Now time has come, make up your mind to be real
Baby, baby, baby
Chorus x 2

 

Don't go wastin' good love
Now time has come, make up your mind to be real
Baby, baby, baby
Chorus

 

Repeat (Fade)

One Hundred And Rising

 

Out in the heat little child
On the streets runnin' wild
Barely ten, got a gun
So now he thinks that he's a man
Yes he does

 

Teenage girl out to steal
'Cos her baby is in need of a meal
Tryin' to cope as best she can
In the high sunshine, low on hope

 

Well, there it is summer in the city
Tryin' to make sense of a world gone crazy

 

Chorus:
(Du du du du du du)
One hundred and risin'
(Du du du du du du)
So the tale is told
(Du du du du du du)
One hundred and risin'
(Du du du du du du)

 

Old man sitting in the shade
Won't take part in the charade
He may be old, but he ain't a fool
He has seen how dreams are bought and sold

 

On every corner, a steady stream
To buy a thrill, a piper's dream
While the heat takes its toll
It's just another day on a city street

 

You got to do the best you can to get by
In the high sunshine

 

Chorus x 3

 

Summer madness will unfold

 

Tryin' to make sense of a world gone crazy

Repeat (Fade)

Roots (Back To A Way Of Life)

 

Living in a world, where everything demands understanding
We try and find a way, through the places and spaces in the game

 

We spend a long time running from ourselves
Before we can discover who we are

 

Chorus:
Talkin' bout roots
Ah yah, yah
Back to a way of life
Roots
Ah yah, yah
Talkin' bout roots, back to a way of life
Roots
Ah yah, yah
Back to a way of life

 

Take a step inside, your cultural desires await you
We owe it to ourselves to seek the primal spark that caused the flame

 

We spend a long time running from ourselves
Before we can discover who we are

 

Chorus

 

Water is not stronger than the blood

 

Chorus

 

Repeat (Fade)

Everyday

 

Come over here, closer my dear
Wrap me in your tenderness
There's no place else I'd rather be
Than here with you my love

 

(So strong)
When we are together
(So real)
I've never known it better
A love like ours can surely last
Until the end of time

 

Chorus:
(Everyday in every way)
My joy is growing wilder
(Every day I'm glad to say)
This love has taken over
(Every day we'll find a way)
Keep heart and soul together
(Every day you're givin' me the real thing)
You're givin' me the real thing

 

As mornin' greets us with its song
I'm waken by your sweet caress
There in the sunshine of your smile
I find such happiness

 

(Your love)
Is all that I desire
(No one)
Could give me greater pleasure
A love like ours can surely last
Until the end of time

 

Chorus x 3

 

Come over here, closer my dear
Wrap me in your tenderness
There's no place else I'd rather be
Than here with you my love

 

(So strong) When we are together
(So real) Never known it better
A love like ours can surely last
Until the end of time
Chorus x 3

Too Far Gone

 

He wanted to believe that the
Field was his to play
Say's he's happy that she's gone away
Any fool can tell she's here to stay
From his mind she would never stray

 

He's trying to hide it
But inside the pain can't be denied
I guess he's too far gone

 

No he's spendin' all his time tryin'
To tell the world he's free
Deep inside he know he'll never be
And now it seems that he's lost the key
He's like a raft driftin' out at sea

 

He's tryin' to to fake it
But the sadness is all that he can feel
I guess that he's too far gone

 

He cannot see that as he talks
He's takin' a road that is goin' nowhere
There's no tellin' him, he's too far gone

 

He's walkin' down the street lookin' sure of himself today
He's never short of things to say
In his mind he knows he's lost his way
It's the price he has to pay.

 

Gone too far
Too far gone
Gone too far
Too far gone

Spellbound And Speechless

 

Across a crowded room, set apart from it all
You took my breath away (yes you did)

 

Like a sparkle in the dark
You smiled and I knew
That you would make my dreams come true

 

Chorus:
Spellbound and speechless
Spellbound
Spellbound and speechless
Spellbound
Spellbound

 

It's unbelievable, I hardly know you at all
Still you make me feel this way
You're unpredictable
In all the things that you do
Now my heart belongs to you (Yes it does)

 

Chorus

 

I'm bein' true to myself
With every word I say in all the things I do
And though you may not feel the same,
You know I'm there for you
I can't stop lovin' you
Spellbound, spellbound, spellbound

 

Chorus x 3

 

Repeat (Fade)

I Hear Your Name

 

 

It's been a year today
Baby, since you came into my life
Feels just like yesterday
That we both stood beneath the open sky

 

Playing like children in the rain
As though we had known our destiny
Nothin' would every be the same
I guess I knew you were the one for me

 

Chorus:
I hear your name (I hear your name)
Suddenly the world is standin' still
I hear your name (I hear your name)
And I start dreamin' of makin' love
I hear your name (I hear your name)
Bringin' on a rush of ecstasy
I hear your name
And I feel like makin' love to you

 

We've come such a long way
A travellers' road, no lookin' back
Here's where I want to stay
Safe in your arms feelin' body & soul

 

When you're not here I long to feel
The lovin' warmth of your embrace
Mssin' you madly night and day
Longin' to see you face to face

 

Chorus

 

There is no use in tryin' to hide
The way that I feel
Life is so clear with you on my mind
I know for sure I'm not mislead
And baby, I love everything that you do
For me

 

Chorus

 

Feel like makin' makin' love
I feel like makin' love

 

'Cos I feel like makin' makin' love
I feel like makin' love

Time Has Come

 

 

All things have meanin'
If we take the time, then we will see
Smoke means there's a fire
So we live and learn to understand
Recognising the danger
(and) Throwin' out a lifeline if we're able
Gather inspiration
Together in a harvest of the free

 

Chorus:
Get up, 'cos the time has come
You'd better believe, that it will be done
You can't make pretend it's and illusion
Get up, 'cos the time has come
You better believe, that it will be done
The reason bein' life is not a dream

 

We're all witness
To the politics, of life and survival
New day is commin'
Every woman, every man will be as one
Can't stop tryin' like a mother
To give her child a better life if she's able
Keep on fightin'
Believin' every word to be a song of freedom

Chorus

 

Chorus
