Beneath The

Surface Lyrics

 

Labour Of Love

 

 

I'm a man, I know that you've been hurt by one and more
Understand, you have never known a love like this
A love like this before
A love like this before

 

Promises, I know that they come knockin' at your door
But it's me who stays, true to every word and more than this
I can give you more
I can give you more

 

Chorus:
You're living on the run, tell me baby, when will it all stop
I'm waiting for the chance I wanna give you, everything I got
Slow down take it easy, all you've got to do is reach out for me
We can work and make it
A labour of love

 

I'm a man, I know that you've been hurt by one and more
Understand, you have never known a love like this
A love like this before
A love like this before

 

Chorus

 

(Reach our for me)
A labour of love
(Reach our for me)
A labour of love
(Reach our for me)
A labour of love
(Reach our for me)

 

Chorus

 

Stop think it over, where I'm coming from
I'm not here to fool anybody, please don't get me wrong
Slow down take it easy, all you've got to do is reach out for me
We can work and make it
A labour of love

Beneath The Surface

 

 

Here I sit and watch the crowds go by, Papa da papa papa yeah

But there's only one face I can see

If only they would understand, Papa da papa papa yeah

I'd open the door and let him in

 

Chorus:

How long can I hide, what I'm feeling inside

My love is a river, that's got to make its way into sea

This feeling can't hide, Lord knows I've tried

Beneath the surface

Beneath the surface

 

I try, though I know I'm hanging on a string, Papa da papa papa yeah

You're the only one thing on my mind

Keeps floating to a distant shore, Papa da papa papa yeah As I go on denying myself

 

Chorus…

 

Oh, keeps turning round in my mind Oh, round and round in my mind

 

Here I sit and watch the crowds go by Papa da papa papa yeah But there's only one face I can see

A Shade of Blue

 

 

A lifetime waiting for the light to shine

Suddenly you were here, like an angel appeared

And the world that I knew changed into a wonderland

Then you called out my name, Looked around and I found you were gone

Like the rays of the sun, disappeared into never ending nights

 

Where everything real has turned to stone

And the songbird has flown (you`re gone)

Now I know a rose can change a shade of blue

Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

A shade of blue

 

My body’s hurting, crying and yearning

Sometimes I feel like I’m loosing my mind

And I think about you, knowing only you could understand

Here alone in my room, I can feel all the walls closing in

Feeling trapped in a shell, wishing that I could spin the wheels of change

Without You

 

 

Lying awake in my bed, thinking things you said

Everything that I do, somehow leads me to you

(Closer to your love)

Lift my spirit so high, you're all I need to get by

I've been counting days, forever thinking ways

(To get closer to your love)

This loneliness will end the day you reappear

 

Living in this world without you here

It's like trying to reach the heavens when I've got no wings to fly

You can make this feeling disappear

Come on over baby, come on over to me

Living in this world without you here

It's like trying to reach the heavens when I've got no wings to fly

You can make this feeling disappear

Come on over baby, come on over to me

 

You started something in me, stirring constantly

Though we're oceans apart, I build a bridge to your heart

(Closer to your love)

Like a bird on the wire, sing my heart's desire

Caught in something so strong, I really feel I belong

(In the shelter of your love)

This loneliness will end the day you reappear

 

I just can't keep it in, I've got to let you know

I got so much love to give you, gonna let these feelings show

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick

 

 

Misunderstood

 

Rejection tars the roads where I have been

Still I'm holding on to the same dream

Came through fire and the pouring rain

To be told that I'm the one to blame

 

Misunderstood

(Never thought that I would)

Didn't know that I could be

(Misunderstood)

Misunderstood

(Never thought that I would)

Didn't know that I could be

(Misunderstood)

 

They're chasing shadows and they'll never know

The truth about us and their fears will grow

Only we know what has not been told

We'll meet in secret in the fields of gold

 

So now they come to see me cry

Too late now, the well's run dry

I know they think I'm putting chains on you

Let the fools believe, it's what they wanna do

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick

 

 

 

Hold On To Me

 

 

You try to take things easy, but your mind out of control begins to wander

Will there ever come a time, this searching and this waiting will be over

 

See our love can come and go

But there's something you should know

 

If you're looking for somebody

Who will always be there for you

Hold on (I'm the one)

If you really need somebody

Who will always take care of you

Hold on (Hold on to me)

 

I was made to love you and the voices in my heart they keep me knowing

You've got to give me time

All I'm asking is the chance to prove my loving

 

I got this feeling going on, taking hold of me so strong

 

I was made to love you, I know that much is true

I was made to love (you)

 

I got this feeling going on, taking hold of me so strong

Living Against The River

 

 

In the early morning light you step into the cold

Your curses freeze mid air, the bus is late

You’ve got to get to work on time, your job is on the line

Soon you’ll start again, the same routine

 

Deep inside your mind, the dreamers dream you’ll find

As the day is long, it keeps you moving on

Trying to stay ahead as best you can

 

Sweep away the notion of a revolution

Do it for yourself

 

(there’s no stoppin’)

(living against the river)

Do what you do what you do

(got to keep pushing)

(when you’re living against the river)

Do what you do what you do

 

As the light begins to fade and you’re heading back for home

Your head is hanging low, you’re feeling blue

From the corner of your eyes, under neon lights you see

The old man in the snow with worn out shoes

 

Sweep away the notion of a revolution

Do it for yourself

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick

 

 

 

Fountain Of Life

 

 

Chase the sunrise, people come together

Feel the glory of the new day

Feed the feeling, gather friends and strangers

Come together make it stay this way

 

Looking for the fountain of love

We fell into a cool paradise (he yeah hey yeah)

The rythm of the sand and the sea

Is where we've always wanted to be

I've been looking (looking for the fountain of love)

Searching (fell into the cool paradise)

I've been in search of paradise (the rhythm of the sand and the sea)

Sand and sea (where we've always wanted to be)

 

Wanted, Always, wanted

Always searching for a new direction

Your heart desires a better state of mind

Mother nature will provide the feeling

In the sunshine, happiness you'll find

 

We've been holding on. Waiting for this day to come our way

Holding on. We've been holding on

Waiting for the light to shine our way (holding on)

Always waiting. Sayin' (free me, free me, free me)

Out Of The Storm

 

It's hard to believe, that a year's gone by
Feels like yesterday
Strange as it seems, I knew back then, I'd feel this way today

The road is long, there'll always be wild winds blowing
(One thing you gotta know)
Beyond the clouds there's nothing but blue skies

Hey, hey, hey, hey

 

Chorus:
Out of the storm, come on in out of the rain
Out of the storm
Out of the storm, come on in out of the rain
Out of the storm

 

You try to slow down, but you loose control, like a runaway
A voice in your mind, lets you know, this feeling's here to stay

 

Don't turn around, look straight up ahead, keep movin'
(One thing you gotta know)
Beyond the clouds there's nothing but blue skies
Blue skies

 

Chorus

 

Got so much to give you, I got so much to give you
Got so much to give you, I got so much to give you
Baby

 

The road is long, there'll always be wild winds blowing
(One thing you gotta know)
Beyond the clouds there's nothing but blue skies
Baby

 

Chorus

 

Got so much to give you, I got so much to give you
Got so much to give you, I got so much to give you

 

Writer:  J-P. Maunick

 

 

 

All That You Want Me To Be

 

 

Here you go again looking for the one

When all along before your eyes everything you longed for

What's happening to you?

Can't you see the possibilities?

 

I could be all that you want me to be

Everything you wish for and more

I could be all that you want me to be

All you ever wanted and more

 

There you go again back where you began

Telling me that you're confused and undecided

I'll still be here for you

Can't you see the possibilities?

 

I need a little time to prove my love

(Hey baby, Oooo my love)

I've got to make you see the possibilities of you and me

So real, so real
