Missionary Man

Well I was born an original sinner.
I was borne from original sin.
And if I had a dollar bill
For all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money
Piled up to my chin...

My mother told me good
My mother told me strong.
She said "be true to yourself
And you can't go wrong."
"But there's just one thing
That you must understand."
"You can fool with your brother -
But don't mess with a missionary man."

Don't mess with a missionary man.
Don't mess with a missionary man.

Well the missionary man
He's got God on his side.
He's got the saints and apostles
Backin' up from behind.
Black eyed looks from those Bible books.
He's a man with a mission
Got a serious mind.
There was a woman in the jungle
And a monkey on a tree.
The missionary man he was followin' me.
He said "stop what you're doing."
"Get down upon your knees."
"I've got a message for you that you better believe."

(Chorus repeats...)

Thorn In My Side

Thorn in my side.
You know that's all you ever were.
A bundle of lies.
You know that's all that it was worth...
I should have known better
But I trusted you at first.
I should have known better
But I got what I deserved...

To run away from you
Was all that I could do.
To run away from you
Was all that I could do.

Thorn in my side.
You know that's all you'll ever be.
So don't think you know better
'Cause that's what you mean to me...
I was feeling complicated.
I was feeling low.
Now everytime I think of you
I shiver to the bone...

(Chorus repeats...)

When Tomorrow Comes

Underneath your dreamlit eyes
Shades of sleep have driven you away.
The moon is pale outside
And you are far from here.
Breathing shifts your careless head
Untroubled by the chaos of our lives.
Another day - another night
Has taken you again my dear.
And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon
When tomorrow comes...
When tomorrow comes...

Wait till tomorrow comes - yea yea...
Wait till tomorrow comes - yea yea...

Last night while you were
Lying in my arms
And I was wondering where you were
You know you looked just like a baby
Fast asleep in this dangerous world.
Every star was shining brightly
Just like a million years before.
And we were feeling very small
Underneath the universe.
And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there when you need
Someone to depend upon
When tomorrow comes...
When tomorrow comes...

The Last Time

Well the first time that I saw you
You were standing in the rain.
You were waiting at the station
For the last connecting train.
Well - who will you go to
When there's no-one to betray?
And I said - who will you go to
When your best friend turns away?
Hey hey...

Last time you're gonna let me down.
Last time you're gonna
Fool around with me...

There's a garden full of roses,
There's a necklace full of pearls.
You have come to take the roses
To give to other girls.
Well - I am just a pretty thing
You wanted for a day.
There is nothing left between us
There is nothing left to say...
Hey hey...

People like you
Can be so mean.
People like you
Just don't come clean.

(Chorus repeats...)

The Miracle Of Love

How many sorrows
Do you try to hide
In a world of illusion
That's covering your mind?
I'll show you something good
Oh I'll show you something good.
When you open your mind
You'll discover the sign
That there's something
You're longing to find...

The miracle of love
Will take away your pain
When the miracle of love
Comes your way again.

Cruel is the night
That covers up your fears.
Tender is the one
That wipes away your tears.
There must be a bitter breeze
To make you sting so viciously -
They say the greatest coward
Can hurt the most ferociously.
But I'll show you something good.
Oh I'll show you something good.
If you open your heart
You can make a new start
When your crumbling world falls apart.

(Chorus repeats...)

Let's Go!

He was the kinda guy
I liked the way he looked.
He had a red silk tie -
He had a forties suit.
And I said - "You're the kind of person
I've been longing to adore."
"You're the kind of person
I've been waiting for."
He said - "The time is right to take a chance
'Cause I'm looking for a brand new romance."
"So come on baby let's go outside -
I've got a car in the drive and we can take a ride."

"So let's go - I wanna fall in love ooh hoo."
"Let's go - I wanna fall in love ooh hoo."

Well - we went driving for an hour or so
Till we took the little Chevy down to Mexico.
And I said - "Blue eyed boy, you know I love the way you look."
"Why don't we find a preacher
Who can get us hooked?"
"You know the time is right to take a chance
'Cause I'm looking for a brand new romance."
And the great big moon
Was a shinin' down
He said "Forget about the preacher man,
Let's do it on the ground!"

"Let's go - I wanna fall in love ooh hoo."
"Let's go - I wanna fall in love ooh hoo."

Take Your Pain Away

If I could find a way
To soothe your troubled mind
Then I would erase your fears
And help you to unwind.
I would ease the burden
That you carry everyday.
Oh - don't you know I'd find a cure
And take your pain away.

Take your pain away
Take your pain away...

And even though you're far from here
Don't forget I'm always near.
Find comfort in these words I send
In this cold world.

Take your pain away
Take your pain away...

For every aching heart
For every broken soul...

So give up your worries
They'll only do you harm.
There is no need to be concerned
t's just a false alarm.

(Chorus repeats...)

A Little Of You

There used to be a time
I wore my heart upon my sleeve.
There used to be a time
I'd show my gentle side to anyone
Through these years of wandering
I know I've been deceived.
Through these years of wandering...

And everytime you try to hurt me
You know you'll only hurt yourself.
And everytime you try to hurt me
I know you'll be the one to suffer
When you think you're hurting someone.

A little of you - a little of me -
A little of you -
Is hurting someone -

Don't tell me I'm the only one
'Cause I don't need that space.
Don't ask for love
I'll throw it back in your face.
All of these promises
Were only made to break.
All of these promises...

(Chorus repeats...)

In This Town

I could be anywhere else but here
But the rain won't let me go.
There's a photograph
Hanging on my wall
Of a place I've never been to...
I'll never make the grade
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
And I can't stop the rain
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
What do the papers say?
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
Get up and go now!

In this town - something's gotta change.
In this town - something's gotta change.

I'm looking at the world -
Looking for a scene -
Waiting for a day -
Filling in time like I'm digging
My own grave...
I'll never make the grade
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
And I can't stop the rain
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
What do the papers say?
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
Get up and go now!

(Chorus repeats...)

I Remember You

Well there's a colour picture
In my mind.
Of all the places
That I've left behind.
The broken windows
Where the wind blows through
Empty shells of houses
That have turned to ruin.

Oh - we were so young.
We didn't realise
Just what we'd done.
Oh - we were too young.

And I remember you.
You were the back yard boy.
Hiding in the wreckage
Of broken dreams.
Standing by the railway line.
Standing.

Oh - we were so young.
We didn't realise
Just what we'd done.
Oh - we were too young.

And all the sweetness
Has been taken out of this place.
So many memories
Are knocked down or replaced.
And I can't stand to see
The shifting time
Taking me further -
Leaving you behind.

(Chorus repeats...)
