Tales From The

Beach Lyrics

 

Love, Joy, Understanding

 

If in your heart the choice is clear
It's better to speak, and let each other know now
Let's face the truth, the damage done
It's been a little too late, for just a little too long

 

If we're to find our way back home (ay ya ya ya)
For tonight and the rest of our lives

 

Let's build a bridge to what is real
Let's build a bridge to express what we feel
We both know we can't go on, with this empty space between us
Let's build a bridge to what is real
Let's build a bridge to express how we feel
We both know this thing can't last, with this great divide in our lives

 

We need joy, understanding, love

 

So often in life we loose our way
Drifting apart we slowly let it go
Too busy to stop and too blind to see
It gets a little too late, for just a little too long
We need love, Show me the love
Brothers and sisters sing it with me (Come on now)

 

Cos we need love, we need love
We need love, love, love
Just a little more love and understanding
Just a little more joy
Just a little love yeah, yeah

I've Been Waiting

 

Feelings... emotions, you can't fight it gotta mind of it's own
Watchin... hoping, that as you pass my way someday you'll be mine
I wish that I could stop this moment in time
And make some sense of it (oh yeah)
Let you know how I feel

 

I've been waiting for the chance to rock your mind
And now you're beside me
I've been waiting for the chance to make you mine
You're so fly, but I'm too shy to ask

 

What do I say?
What can I say... to someone as beautiful as you?

 

Wanting... feelin, when you're around me I feel like I'm on fire
Knowing... believing, whatever may be you won't leave my mind
I wish that I could stop this moment in time
And make some sense of it
Gotta let you know let you know how I feel

 

I've been waiting for the chance to rock your mind
And now you're beside me
I've been waiting for the chance to make you mine
You're so fly, but I'm too shy to ask

 

I've been waiting for the chance to rock your mind
And now you're beside me

 

What do I say?
What can I say... to someone as beautiful as you?

 

You're so fly, I'm too shy (repeat 4 1/2 times)

 

Waiting for the chance to make you mine
Waiting for the chance to rock your mind

When The Sun Comes Down

 

It's so hard to be myself
When you're around my cool disappears
But you tell me that you like the way
You say it's fine to put our hearts on the line
I guess it's time to put my faith in you and let my world undo

 

When the sun comes down, will you be around?
Stay and light the heavens the whole night through
When the sun comes down will I hear the sound?
The whisper of your kisses until the night is through

 

Never enough time in the day
For me to show what I'm feeling for you
And when I tried to hide what's in my eyes
You look at me and your smile makes them shine
And I just want to get right next to you and let my world undo

 

When the sun comes down, will you be around?
Stay and light the heavens the whole night through
When the sun comes down will I hear the sound?
The whisper of your kisses until the night is through

 

When the sun comes down…
When the sun comes down…
When the sun comes down…
When the sun comes down…
When the sun comes down…
When the sun comes down…
Stay with me until the night is through

Step Aside

 

If I get a little praise, you say something to bring me down
And when I go it on my own, you'll remark that I'm neglecting you
There's too much to loose if I should stay around

 

Tonight and for the rest of my life, there won't be a compromise
To justifies the lies
All the colors are faded, and this whole story so jaded

 

Maybe it's time that you step aside
This is my time and I'm feeling strong
Maybe it's time that you step aside
There's no use holding on
Maybe it's time that you step aside
I'm happy at last and I'm feeling high
Maybe it's time that you step aside
Nothing's going to stop me now

 

Should I be a little late, I'll be questioned and I'll be accused
And when you've been out all through the night
And I gently ask you where you've been
You trip out on me, and my world comes crashing down
So tonight and for the rest of my life, there won't be a compromise
To justifies the lies
All the colors are faded, and this whole story so jaded

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick / F. Hylton

 

 

 

N.O.T.

 

No this is not an ordinary thing to me
It's scandalous to see how much you've changed
Where is the friend?
The one that I once used to know
You're talking to me crazy
As though you never knew me

 

I guess it's time to let you know
That I have got to let you go

 

No this is not
The lovin' that I use to know
This is not the feelin' that I couldn't let go
No this is not
The lovin' that I use to know
This is not the feelin' that I couldn't let go

 

N.O.T. (Repeat 4 times)

 

No ordinary thing
In my life

 

Well bless my soul, what kind of a fool d'you take me for
I gave you everything that love can bring
You spun me round until my world came tumblin' down
I know this double dealin'
It's something I can do without

 

I guess it's time to let you know
Yes I think that you should go

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick / M. Cooper

 

 

 

Happy People

 

In your hand you hold your destiny
Take your troubles make them disappear
When you let your soul come shinin' through
Your heart is pure your vision ever clear

 

It's clearly been written in the book of life
It's up to you and me to make the change
For ecology and poverty, equality

 

Light shines, where the happy people
All rise, and gather together as one

 

You and I control the way we live
Take something old and make it something new
Build ourselves a future paradise
And bring our aspirations into view

 

It's clearly written in the book of life
From first we love and really learn to care
Like ripples upon the water reaching everywhere
Suddenly our souls come shinin' through
Our heart is pure the vision ever clear

 

It's written in the book of life, if we want to change
We should be the change
For ecology and poverty, equality
We can do it

 

J-P. Maunick / F. Hylton

 

 

 

I Come Alive (Rimshots And Basses)

 

I just wanna get down
My feet stompin' in the ground
Music be my healer
Sa du ba du ba du dei

 

I feel it in my veins
From the rimshot to the bass
For me there is no other, no

 

I'm headin' midtown
For a shakedown
Right there in the corner
That's where I'm gonna be

 

I come alive
When the backbeat starts to hit me
Takes me home and feeds my soul

 

I come alive
And the swing becomes my inspiration
I am revived and my spirit is received

 

You can say what you want
Ain't nothin' better for the blues
Heaven knows it, baby
Scu ba du ba du dei

 

See the smile on my face
When I close my eyes and shine
And the world just doesn't matter, no

 

I come alive
When the backbeat starts to hit me
Takes me home and feeds my soul

 

I come alive
And the swing becomes my inspiration
I am revived and my spirit is received

Freedom To Love

 

Let's improvise, Let's improvise
We've got what it takes, let's improvise
We've got what it takes, let's improvise

 

Bodies in motion, hearts wide open
Minds searching for love

 

You can do it if you wanna. Make it happen if you try
You can do it if you wanna. Make it happen if you try

 

Everyday people do what you can
Hold on to your dreams
For the freedom to learn, in our time
Freedom to live and to love

 

Freedom to learn, in our time
Freedom to live and to love
Freedom to learn, in our time
Freedom to live and to love

 

We've got what it takes, let's improvise
We've got what it takes, let's improvise

 

Doers and dreamers, voices are calling
Needing somebody to love
The mind is a garden, let the inspiration grow
Evolution everyday, for love

 

Bodies in motion, hearts wide open
Minds searching for love
Seeking direction, life's affirmation
A journey forever to love

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick / Ski Oakenfull

 

 

 

I Remember A Time

 

Sitting here up on the hill
Looking out over the distant sea
I wonder how the winding roads that brought me here
Is simply gone and disappeared
Have been caught up in a selfish game
Now I see my rise and fall

 

[chorus]
I remember a time
I could see forever
I remember a time
When I held it on together
Is it me who's rushing by
Or it's time just standing still
Would someone please reach out and help me find
Pieces of my shallow dreams

 

Need for shelter of the trees
Trying to find some comfort
From the madness of the new day sound
I've got to stop these thoughts
That are rolling through my head
For time...? out into tears
I came out here just to get away
Only to see my rise and fall

 

[chorus]

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick / M. Cooper

 

 

 

It May Rain Sometime

 

It may rain sometime
Can't be all sunshine
May even snow a little
Because the heart is brittle

 

It may rain sometime
Can't be all sunshine
Like the sparrow's disappear
I hope and pray you'll reappear

 

A fleeting light, some solid ground
The faintest murmur brings me hope
A late night call, a passing car
Brings a pounding to my heart

 

It may rain sometime
Can't be all sunshine
May even snow a little
Because the heart is brittle

 

It may rain sometime
Can't be all sunshine
Like the sparrow's disappear
I hope someday you'll reappear

When Words Are Just Words

 

I would be a liar if I said I've never hurt anyone but myself
And it would be unfair if I were to fix the blame on
Everyone but myself

 

We took the time to talk it over, and made plans about the future
You said for you there is no other
You loved the way we are together
Stop living in a lie

 

What's the use in telling me you care,
When words are just words
And there's no proof of it
What's the use in saying you'll be there,
When words are just words
And this heart is an empty place
You're gone without a trace

 

It would be absurd if I believed the promise would never die
After all we've been through I'd be a fool to believe there'll never be
another lie

 

Thought we took the time to talk it over,
And we made plans about the future
You said for you there'd be no other
That we were meant to be together

 

Writer:  J-P. Maunick / G. Harvey / R. Bull

 

 

 

Feel The Pressure

 

Feel the pressure
Don't know where I'm goin' but I know where I'm from
Get it together

 

Feel the pressure
Don't know where I'm goin' but I know where I've been
Get it together

 

Writer: J-P. Maunick / Ski Oakenfull

 

 

 

Silence of My Mind

 

I wake up and I'm feeling low with a feeling that won't let me go
and I'm building walls inside me to keep the world from coming in.
I see no sense in taking anymore
I've been here more than all once before
I know the headline of the story

Before I read the morning news

 

It's not to late to recognize, you're taking the best of me
I've waited long to see you change
But here we are and we're still the same

 

When it gets too crazy and I can't be found
I may be hiding in the silence of my mind
If you're looking for me but I can't be found
I may be hiding in the silence of my mind (Of my mind)

 

It comes without a guarantee
Can't believe in everything you see
All the loving and affection can be slowly worn away
I see the future coming into view
I'm in the shadows and I'm feeling blue
Got to make the right the right decision before there's nothing left to lose

It's not too late to recognize that you're taking the best of me
I've waited long to see a change
But here we are and we're still the same

 

When it gets too crazy and I can't be found (so crazy woooo)
I may be hiding in the silence of my mind (hiding in the silence)
If you're looking for me but I can't be found
I may be hiding in the silence of my mind (in the in the silence)
Of my mind, Oh yea yea
When it gets to crazy and I can't be found
I may be hiding in the silence of my mind
If you're looking for but I can't be found
I may be hiding in the silence of my mind.
In the silence Mmmmmm
In the silence of my mind
