Life, Stranger Than

Fiction Lyrics

 

Stay Mine

 

 

There were moments in my past, I couldn't tell right from wrong
Getting lost along the way in places I did not belong

 

I couldn't see a way to turn myself around, so deep my confusion
Until the day you woke up my senses, showed me happiness was not just an illusion

 

Since you came into my life, I've been caught in a world of ecstasy
For the first time in all my days, I feel like I'm walking on solid ground
Stay mine, stay mine

 

Getting by just on my own, Always been my intention
Now sitting here waiting by the phone, I realise how much I needed this emotion

 

Every time I get the chance I'm gonna let you know, how you complete me
I put away all my defences, all the love I got, I give to you completely

 

Since you came into my life, I've been caught in a world of ecstasy
For the first time in all my days, I feel like I'm walking on solid ground
Stay mine, stay mine, got to stay mine 

 

Now you've got to know, you're the top of my list
One the one the one the one, my number one
There's no doubt in my mind, baby you're the one
One the one the one the one the one

 

Since you came into my life, I've been caught in a world of ecstasy
For the first time in all my days, I feel like I'm walking on solid ground

 

Ever since you came into my life, I've been caught in a world of ecstasy
For the first time in all my days, I feel like I'm walking on solid ground
Stay mine, stay mine, got to stay mine, stay mine, sugar honey baby
One the one the one, my number one
One the one the one the one the one

Bring You Down

 

No one can enslave anybody
Who's got freedom, freedom of mind
But what they sure as hell can do
Is to put you in the grave
'Cos they know you've got freedom of mind

 

We need to be awaken to the new reality
Keep the fires burning in our souls
There are stages in our lives
That we need to leave behind
To keep the freedom of mind

 

Gonna bring you down
People bring you down
Gonna bring you down
Down, down, down
Gonna bring you down
If you don't stand your ground
Gonna bring you down
Down, down, down

 

Damn it's a shame to work your fingers to the bone
To barely, barely make a living
And you wake up early mornings
Don't come home 'till late
It's a struggle
In a jungle, jungle, jungle

 

We all need to be awaken to the new reality
Keep the fires burning in our souls
There are stages in our lives
We need to leave behind
To keep the freedom of the mind

Slow Down (Get A Grip)

 

Slow down, get a grip, ain't this ironic?
Slow down and get a grip, I betcha didn't think it would come to this
Ain't this ironic?

 

I don't mean to be abrupt, but I know there's something on your mind
So before you interrupt baby, let me tell you what's really going on
It's not about our history, when and who we've slept with in the past
It's all about discovery, gettin' to know and love me for me

 

Slow down, get a grip, ain't this ironic?
Slow down and get a grip, I betcha didn't think it would come to this
Ain't this ironic?

 

You gotta face it, it's a mess, it's a war zone, right now I gotta be on my own
I ain't heading for a breakdown sure as my name is Sarah Brown
Yes I need to be alone, out there on my own
Need to water all my roots, until my spirit has grown

 

Got to do, got to do, I know I've really got to do it
Got to be bold, got to be bold, be bold
Got to do, got to do, I know I've really got to do it
Got to move on, got to move, move on
Soon the caged bird will have flown

 

Slow down, get a grip, ain't this ironic?
Slow down and get a grip, I betcha didn't think it would come to this
Ain't this ironic?

 

You gotta face it, it's a mess, it's a war zone, right now I gotta be on my own
I ain't heading for a breakdown , sure as my name is Sarah Brown
You gotta face it, it's a mess, It's a war zone, right now you gotta be on your own
you ain't heading for a breakdown , sure as your name is! Sarah Brown

 

S.a.r.a.h. – B.r.o.w.n . from the soles of my boots to my folicle roots
I ain't heading for a breakdown
You were always the one askin' for space
Sayin' maybe it's time we tried something new
While you were thinkin' of someone you knew
Aint that ironic, ironic, ironic

 

Listen to me, don't listen to me
It really doesn't matter cos the girl's got to get it on
Get it on, get it on, get it on
Alright

Skin On My Skin

 

What am I gonna do now that you're gone?
What am I gonna do now that you're gone?

 

Looking back how I wish I had told you what was on my mind
Looking back, wish I had, said what was on my mind

 

Reason away, reason away, I can't reason away my pain
I cannot ease my pain

 

What am I gonna do now that you're gone?
What am I gonna do now that you're gone?

 

I turn out the lights and I'm alone
You're not coming home
I miss your skin on my skin
This feeling I know can't be compared
Nothing can replace
The feel of your skin on my skin

 

I'm mystified, don't know how I let you slip away
Mystified, don't know how I let you slip away

 

Come back baby, come back is all that I can say
Come back baby is all I can say

 

I turn out the lights and I'm alone
You're not coming home
I miss your skin on my skin
This feeling I know can't be compared
Nothing can replace
The feel of your skin on my skin

 

Missin', I'm missin'
the feel of your skin
Missin', I'm missin', missin'
On my skin
Missin', I'm missin',
Missin', I'm missin', missin'

Cut It Loose

 

It's July but it's winter in your mind
You've been down but never quite this way before

 

It's a crime to watch the needle take another soul
Look around see the poison killing people by the score

 

You've got into something that's leading you nowhere, cut it loose
Yeah, yeah, cut it loose, turn it out
Getting deeper into something, that leaves you with nothing, cut it loose
Yeah, yeah, cut it loose, turn it out

 

Every time you escape into the wilderness
You will find it's stolen just a little more of you

 

You say you're fine, but it's only your imagination
Such a shame, 'cos you've only got yourself to blame

 

You've got into something that's leading you nowhere, cut it loose
Yeah, yeah, cut it loose, turn it out
Getting deeper into something, that leaves you with nothing, cut it loose
Yeah, yeah, cut it loose, turn it out

 

Such a shame, you've only got yourself to blame

 

You've got into something that's leading you nowhere, cut it loose
Yeah, yeah, cut it loose, turn it out
Getting deeper into something, that leaves you with nothing, cut it loose
Yeah, yeah, cut it loose, turn it out

There Will Come A Day

 

Sometimes I'm walking down the street, with my head in the clouds
I can't see what stands before me, I can't feel the walls around me
I'm lost in a daydream
A place where every child could be runnin' wild, running free
It feels so natural, could it be possible for this to be?

 

Make a wish on a star, that our troubles won't last forever
Now that we've come so far, I believe that we can make it all the way

 

A place where everyone can feel love happiness
I know, can't be far away
Where every woman child and man need never be oppressed
I know there will come a day

 

There will come a day, there comes a day, there will come a day

 

Yes I've been down on my Knees, with my head to the sky
Hoping this world divided, will make a stand united
Oh happy day
We've seen the future within' the past, the price of closin' our eyes
Let's turn this situation, with love and education
Let's find a way

 

Make a wish on a star, that our troubles won't last forever
Now that we've come so far, I believe that we can make it all the way

 

A place where everyone can feel, love happiness
I know, can't be far away
Every woman, child, and man, need never be oppressed
I know, there will come a day
A place where everyone can feel, love and happiness
I know, can't be far away
Where every woman, child and man wont be oppressed
I know, there will come a day

 

There will come a day, there comes a day, there will come a day
There will come a day, there comes a day, there will come a day

 

We got to know and understand , we are vital to the master plan
So get ready for the fight as we proceed into the light
Get ready for the fight, for what is right

Worlds Collide

 

From the moment that I laid my eyes on you, I knew
The glory of a new day had arrived, I was hooked on you

 

Suddenly life it seemed was greater than my wildest dream
It never even crossed my mind to try to hide my love

 

There was no way we could stop, getting caught up in that groove

 

Something happens to my life
When our worlds collide
Puts my spirit in the light
When our worlds collide

 

I wasn't looking for another love
I guess my heart was open to persuasion
So surprised you came into my life, out of the blue

 

Suddenly life it seemed was greater than the wildest of my dreams
It never even crossed my mind to try to hide my love

 

There was no way we could stop getting caught up in that groove

 

Something happens to my life
When our worlds collide
Puts my spirit in the light
When our worlds collide

 

Your world, my world, your world, my world

Castles In The Air

 

 

Castles in the air
Dreamers everywhere
Building castles in the air
Like dreamers everywhere

 

If you asked me as a child
If I knew what I would be
Today
I would give you a reply
Convinced of my destiny
True to this day

 

Music, music my first love
Music I love
You're all, all, all, All that I dream of
Labour of my love

 

If you want to know how it feels
Look into the eyes of a child
At play
I make no excuse for my life
'Cos I believe, I believe, I believe
To dream is the way

Got To Know

 

We've got so little time on our hands to make all the changes
That we're needin'
Can't leave until tomorrow what we need to do today, oh no
We just can't leave it

 

War is not the answer to the problems that we're facin'
Gotta learn to live together
Prejudice and pride, ignorance for our defence is not the way
If we wanna have a future

 

Turn back the pages of our history
Learn from our mistakes

 

Got to know, got to know, got to know
People got to know it
Got to know, got to know, got to know
What we reap is what we sow

 

The writin's on the wall and it's clear for all to see the danger
Won't you heed it
We can use the power of expression choose our destination
What it is, What it is

 

Let's send a message loud and clear to the leaders of the world, there's no excuse
For this abuse
No more wars, no more wars, no more wars, don't want to fight no more
No more, no more, no more

 

Turn back the pages of our history
Learn from our mistakes

 

Got to know, got to know, got to know
People got to know it
Got to know, got to know, got to know
What we reap is what we sow

 

There is no shame and all to gain
Gotta give peace a chance
Woh oh oh, do right

Reach Out

 

If you're willing to listen, I got a message for you
Gather everybody, together there's nothing we can't do

 

We must use love inspiration to elevate our minds
Spread the information to the corners of the world

 

Reach out
You'll be amazed what you find
When you reach out with your mind
Reach out
You're gonna find so much more
Won't you reach out and explore

 

If you are searching for something to lead you out of the dark
Light the inner fire, if you believe it will see you through

 

We must use love inspiration to elevate your mind
Spread the information to the corners of the world

 

Reach out
You'll be amazed what you find
When you reach out with your mind
Reach out
You're gonna find so much more
Won't you reach out and explore

 

We are one under the sun

Rivers Runnin' Black

 

Rivers running black
It's a sign of the times
Rivers running black
To the heart of our soul

On The Road (Part One)

 

A broken man, bottle in his hand
Wishes he could stop the voices in his head
He walked the line, till the line got so fine
He didn't even know he'd fallen on the other side

 

One minute hot, the next you're not
And the world that you know becomes a stranger tomorrow
Just like the man with a bottle in his hand
Who wishes he could stop the voices in his head

 

So we travel on the road
And we don't know where we're coming from
We travel on the open road
And we don't know where we're going to

 

I know a man eyes always closed
Lost in his dreams, where it all came to pass
Up on a stand, like Dizzy and the band
Where the beat always drops and the music never stops

 

There came a day when he finally awoke
To find the line broke and his dreams all sailed away
I know a man, bottle in his hand
Wishes he could stop the voices in his head

 

So we travel on the road
And we don't know where we're coming from
We travel on the open road
And we don't know where we're going to

 

It's the beat generation, it's BE-AT,
It's the beat to keep, it's the beat of the heart,
It's being beat and down in the world,
And like old time low-down, and like in ancient civilisations,
The slave boat men rowing galleys' to a beat, and servants spinning pottery to a beat
The faces!
There's no face to compare with Jack Mingus who's up on the bandstand now
With a coloured trumpeter who out blows him wild and dizzy
But Jack's face overlooking all the heads in smoke
He has a face that looks like everybody you've ever known
And seen on the street in your time
Sweet face, hard to describe, sad eyes, cruel lips, expectant gleam
Swaying to the beat, tall, majestical
Waiting in front of the drug-store, swaying to the beat

 

Writer:  J-P. Maunick / G. Sanctuary / J. Kerouac

 

 

 

On The Road (Part Two)

 

So we travel on the road
And we don't know where we're coming from
We travel on the open road
And we don't know where we're going to

Down To Earth

 

Life has cast a smile
In this game of chance
But you can't take for granted
That you've got it all worked out

 

Fool if you think there's nothing left to learn
You got to get down, get down, get down
Back down to earth

 

How could you not know?
There's quite a way to go
The wheels won't stop from turning
The chapters ever changing

 

We can't allow ourselves to be blinded by pride
We are so small in the plan of creation
Gravitate, gravitate, gravitate
Elevate, elevate, elevate
Your mind 

 

So, you think there's nothing left to learn
You got to get down, get down, get down
Back down to earth

 

There's a story of a man
Who bragged he knew it all
Arrogance outspoken
He died alone and broken

 

Fool if you think there's nothing left to learn
You got to get down, get down, get down
Back down to earth
