Sunshine Lyrics

 

Don't Turn My Love Away

 

 

I don't want to spend my life trying to change you
This time I'm gonna take it as it comes
There are so many things that I want to ask you
I am unafraid of what the answers may be

 

Oooo oooo oooo oooo oooo
Before you walk away
And start burning any bridges
Oooo oooo oooo oooo oooo
This woman's not the one you knew
There's been so many changes

 

Please don't turn my love away
(Don't turn my love away)
I'm gonna love you like no one's ever done before
Oh please don't turn your love away
(Turn my love away)
I'm gonna show you a love like you've never known

 

We travel so many roads in a lifetime
In search of a promise, (Promise of a dream come true)
And now that I've found you
Like a falling star falling from the midnight sky
I've got to let you know

 

(If only I knew then)
If I knew then what I know now
Babe I got no doubt that you'd be mine
(Baby got no doubt that you'd be mine)
No doubt in my mind you'd be mine

 

Please don't turn my love away
(Don't turn my love away)
I'm gonna love you like no one's ever done before
Oh please don't turn away my love away
(Turn my love away)
I'm gonna show you a love like you've never known

 

Don't you turn away, run away and leave me this way
Don't you turn away, don't you run away

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, M. Cooper

 

 

Everything Your Heart Desires

 

Out in Rio, we strolled the Ipanema
And headed for the samba
How could we know, Just what would come at sunset
The day we'll never forget

 

With Sugar loaf in the distance fading
We held the night, and it felt so right
No greater feeling have I known
Than to watch the sunrise in your eyes
Sweet love

 

Now I got this feeling, it's undenying
Gonna give you everything your heart desires
Yes I got the feeling, making me feel so good
Gonna give you everything your heart desires 

 

Come with me now, let's take a flight to Mexico
Something there I want to show you
Lets take our wings like butterflies, together we can touch the skies
Like Frida and Diego

 

Through the deserts and the harsh lands baby
I hold you tight, it feels so right
No greater feeling have I known
Than to watch the sunrise in your eyes
Sweet love

Close My Eyes

 

I’m packing my bags and I’m on my way

It’s time once again to take my music on the road

But first let me hold you close a while

For it’s this kind of tenderness

I’m gonna need to get me through

 

Baby you know how to heal my blues

(oh yes you do)

With you in my life, I feel like I just cannot lose

(Just can’t lose)

So wherever I am in this world

I just close my eyes and I find you

 

All I got to do is close my eyes baby

Wherever I am there you are

All I got to do is close my eyes

Wherever I am you will always be

 

We’re heading for the big one down Geneva way

We’re making for the shorelines where everybody’s come to play

Some of us are sleepin’

Others at the back just chillin’

You’re on my mind and everything’s alright

 

Baby you know how to heal my blues

(Oh yes you do)

With you in my life

I feel like I just cannot lose

(Just can’t lose)

So wherever I am in this world

I just close my eyes and I find you

 

I’m gonna need more than a lifetime

To do all of the things I want to do with you

Thank you for you understanding

Baby knows I got a gig to do

 

Writer:  J-P. Maunick, J. Norton

 

 

 

True To Myself

 

Things are not always what they appear to be
Beneath the calm exterior
There can be a soul on fire

 

Truth is not always what the eyes can see
The smile upon our faces
Can disguise our pain and hide the traces

 

Sometimes the rock that we depend on
Melts into the ground and disappears
The one thing that you thought was forever
Slowly washed away by all the tears

 

If I gotta be true to no other
I gotta be true to myself

 

Raise up your head now so the world can see
You have the inner vision
Though the fight is far from over

 

You've got to battle with it endlessly
Before life becomes a rumour
A sudden rising tide that pulls you under

 

True to myself

 

If I'm gonna make it come tomorrow
True to myself
I cannot be the voice of constant sorrow
True to myself
Gotta climb the ladder if I'm able
True to myself
I can't keep this shining light under the table True to myself

 

I wanna be, I gotta be true to myself
True to myself

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, D. Oakenfull

 

 

 

The Principles Of Love

 

It's the principle of love
It's the principle of life

 

When you shut your soul
You're so hard to find
And there's no light in my life

 

When you come to me
And open up your heart
It's a joyful time in my mind

 

Finding and losing, Hurting and healing
Let's get it on, get it on now
Yearning and learning, breaking, creating
Let's get it on, get it on, get it on
It's the principle of love
It's the principle of life

 

It's easy to forget
So caught up in ourselves
That we're not the only ones
(Not the only ones)

 

Trouble finds us all
But love can break the fall
Time and time and time again

 

I've taken time to say goodbye to my sadness
Now I know I'm free
You took my hand, led me out of the darkness
Help me find a brand new me

 

It's the principle of love
It's the principle of life

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, D. Oakenfull

 

 

 

This Thing Called Love

 

Here we are trying to find a meaning for it all
As time keeps slipping away
We take our place in the rows like dominoes
Hoping that we won't be the ones to fall

 

Is it so hard to see that none of us are free
Until we all understand
That this fate can belong to us all

 

Will we learn that the answer's not a war
With our children dying by the score
Educate and share the wealth with every nation
We owe it to ourselves

 

But is it so hard to see that none of us are free
Until we all understand
That we all have a piece of the truth

 

Is it so hard to see that none of us are free
Until we all understand
That it's more than a word
This thing called love

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, J. Norton

 

 

 

Fences And Barriers

 

Whilst others wait, and wait, and wait, and wait
We glide into this jam

 

You're stirin' up a revolution in my mind
The closer I get to you baby

 

You open up the windows of my soul
You do something to me
That I never thought possible

 

Fences and barriers
All seem to disappear when you are near, they're gone
Gone are the seeds of doubt
They're no longer here when you appear

 

Fences and barriers, no more, no more, no more
Fences and barriers, gone, gone, gone
Fences and barriers, they're all gone baby

 

Your caresses speak
They tell a tale of a journey to love
Boy you're blowin' my mind like a hurricane
You're the turnin' tide and this love cannot hide

 

Fences and barriers
All seem to disappear when you are near
Gone are the seeds of doubt
They're no longer here when you appear
They're long gone baby

 

Fences and barriers, no more, no more, no more
Fences and barriers, they're gone, gone, gone
Fences and barriers, no more, no more, no more

 

There is nothing in this world that gets to me like you do
The way you do the things you do
No nothing in this universe that compares to you

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, D. Oakenfull

 

 

 

Autumn Song

 

The leaves were down
Long before the autumn winds arrived

 

Why couldn't you hear me
All the times I told you that love was gone
No you never heard me
Cos I know there was too much on your mind

 

Runnin around in a circle, tryin to catch up to myself
Runnin out of time
Losin' myself in the darkness, every time I played my hand
I was loosin every time 

 

I knew I'd given all that I could give
That is why it had to end this way, (This way)

 

I know that I hurt you
At a time you needed me there
Yes you did, yes I know
But my heart had been broken
And my mind was no longer there
I had to go, yes I did

 

Runnin' around in a circle, tryin' to catch up to myself
Runnin' out of time
Losin' myself in the darkness, every time I played my hand

I was loosin' every time 

 

I knew I'd given all that I could give
That is why it had to end this way, (This way)

 

The leaves were down
Long before the autumn winds arrived
The leaves were down
Before the summer sun had gone
Long before the autumn winds arrived
I'm sorry that it had to be this way
Love was gone

Listen To The Music

 

 

Don't you feel it growin', day by day
People gettin' ready for the news
Some are happy, some are sad
Got to let the music play
What the people need
Is a way to make 'em smile
Ain't so hard to do if you know how
Gotta get a message
Get it on through
Got to let the music play
Let the music play (Repeat)

 

Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
All the time, Let the music play 

 

Well I know you know better, everything I say
Meet me in the country for a day
We'll be happy and we'll dance
We're gonna dance the blues away
If I'm feelin' good to you and you're feelin' good to me
There ain't nothin' we can't do or say
Feelin' good, feeling fine
Gonna let the music play
let the music play (Repeat)

 

Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
All the time

 

Like a lazy flowing river
Surrounding castles in the sky
The crowd is getting bigger
Listenin' for the happy sounds
I've got to let them fly

 

Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
Oh, oh, oh listen to the music
All the time
Let the music play

Mr. Jones

 

You’ve gotta be out of your mind
If you think that I am the kind
To sit around and wait
Say you’ve got me all wrong
If you think that I am gonna be here
Should your plans not escalate

 

Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones
Didn’t I give you so much more
Was it all for nothing
Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones
I can’t give you any more
Was it all for nothing

 

Well I know she’s got you hypnotised
Cos you’re sitting right here next to me
But your heart is not around
I wished that I had you all wrong
But I know that it’s time to step aside
Hitch another ride
I still got my pride

 

You must be losing your mind
If you think that I am the kind
To sit around and wait

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, D. Oakenfull

 

 

 

The World Is Mine

 

The world is mine
Can be for you if you want it to be
The world is mine

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick

 

 

 

Beyond The Clouds

 

Where even angels fear to fly
Beyond the clouds you and I

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, G. Harvey

 

 

 

 

All I Want Is You

 

Used to be too carefree
I wish that I knew then what I know now
Cos I wasn't on the ground the first time around
So caught up in me that I missed you baby

 

No there's no forgetting, everyday regretting
All I think about is you, it drives me crazy

 

I want you (All I want is you baby)
All I want is you
I want you (All I want is you)

 

Thinkin' about Sunday walks with you baby and bedroom talks
My imagination's wild, takes over me
Let's go on a ride, find a place to hide
I know, no one does it better than you baby

 

No there's no forgetting, everyday regretting
Oh when I think about is you, drivin' me crazy

 

I want you (All I want is you baby)
All I want is you
I want you (All I want is you)
I want you (Yes you know what I want baby)
All I want is you
I want you (All I want is you)

 

No there's no forgetting, everyday regretting

(No there's no forgetting)

 

I want you (All I want is you baby)
All I want is you
I want you (All I want is you)

 

If I could make time last forever
I would turn the seconds into years
And I promise you one thing for sure
I would spend them all with you

 

I want you baby yes I do
All I want is you
You're all that I want baby

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick, D. Oakenfull
I want you
