Songteksten/Lyrics: Little Boy Blue



LOVE BUS

Everybody get around ‘cos there’s a party comin’ down today
They lay their funky rhythm down.
They get you dancin’ to the beat they lay.
Like a boat that’s a rockin’ and rollin’ til the light of day.
You’ll be shufflin’ and a shakin’ while you groove the whole night away.

Chorus

We’re gonna go for a ride on the love bus.
The sun in the sky up above us.
No one alive’s gonna stop us.
It’s gonna be a brand new day.

There’s magic in the air and lots of flowers all around.
The people all across the land be tuning in upon a brand new sound.
Playin’ sitar on the beach while the sun is goin’ down.
We’ll be funkin’ in the street til the love bus comes to town.

Chorus

You can do the things you never had the chance to do.
You can try the things you never tried.
Let out all the best you kept inside of you.
Wipe all traces from your mind, leave the past behind.

Chorus

BLUE

Chorus

Some say blue is the sky forever.
Some say blue is the saddest part.
I say since we’re not together.
Blue is the color of a lonely heart.

So you had to run away.
For you know I love you still.
But I know there will be one day.
I’ll get back to you I will.

Until then I’ll fight this feelin’.
That is burnin’ deep within.

Chorus

If you need time to think it over.
If you might plan to come back no more.
I’ll be sad, if it should be over.
But I’ll never close the door.

And I will always fight this feeling.
That is burning deep within.

Chorus

Forever I hold you in my arms.
Even now you’re far away.
Forever hold you in my mind.
Send you every night a prayer.

Some say blue is the sea forever.
Some say blue is a credit card.
I say since we’re not together.
Blue is the color of a lonely heart.

ONE LAST CALL

Jane I miss you so, Oh I miss you so.
I’ve got nowhere to go, I’m way below zero.
Absolute silence, that’s what we agreed.
But I just can’t bear this silence
It’s bringing me down to my knees.

Chorus
One last call, only one more call.
Just one last call, that’s all I’m asking you to pull me through.

God only knows, knows how much I love you.
And I can’t really show, how much I care for you.
Absolute silence – that’s what we agreed.
But I just can’t bear this silence.
It’s bringing me down to my knees.

One last call, only one more call.
Just one last call, that’s all I’m asking you (2x)

MAGIC

I feel like Houdini without his tricks.
I feel like jammin’ but I ran outta licks.
I try to work hard but it makes no sense.
Wherever I start, that’s where the story ends.

Chorus
I could use some magic, I could use some magic.
I could use some magic, a little bit of magic right now.
A little bit of magic right now.

It really doesn’t matter how much I try.
This business I’m in, is really suckin’ me dry.
The money I make I just don’t understand.
It always ends up in someone else’s hands.

Magic, Magic.
A little touch of magic, just a little could save me.
Magic magic, a little touch of magic,
Just a little could save me.
I need magic magic, a little touch of magic, some of your
Magic I’m sure can save me now.

I’m running out of magic, I just can’t live without magic.
And it’s driving me frantic.
Oh I need it right now.
I could use some magic(x3) a little bit of magic right now.
A little bit of magic right now, a little of your magic right.
Now.

JUDY

Chasin’ rainbows, hopin’ that time will treat them right.
Standin’ in the moonglow, now you wanna know.
Who’s on your side.
You’re not into playin’ games.
You don’t wanna change your name.

Chorus
Judy, you don’t wanna be somebody else.
You just wanna be yourself I guess.
Judy, you don’t wanna be somebody else.
But who’s that girl fully under stress.
Who’s that girl lookin’ such a mess.

Racin’ miles & miles to find out you’re far behind.
Watchin’ yourself you sigh, some people want you.
To sell your mind.
You’re not into playin’ games.
You don’t wanna change your name.

Chorus

Dreamin’ schoolgirl’s dreams.
Watchin’ day by day pass by.
Makin’ plans and schemes.
Nothing happens til you try.
And you try and try.

Chorus

YES I WANNE BE RIGHT NOW

Come closer to me.
Let me feel your pain.
Let me softly touch your soul.
We could bathe in each other’s dreams tonight.
And let’em wash away the cold inside you.

I don’t wanna lose you again.
Like I did the last time.
I will be the one to hold you.

Yes I wanna be right now (x2)
Yes I wanna be right by your side (x2)

Come lies beside me.
Let me keep you warm.
Let me softly touch your face.
We could simply walk away from here.
‘Cos we don’t need to run someone else’s race.

I don’t wanna lose you again.
Like I did the last time.
Wanna be the one to hold you.

Yes I wanna be right now (x2)
Yes I wanna be right by your side (x2)

LITTLE BOY BLUE

You ask a 1000 whys.
Wait for answers from the sky.
You told so many lies, they only deceived you.
Remorse is in your eyes, would anyone believe you ?

You’re looking at the world from a distant point of view.
What-a-you gonna do ?

Little boy blue, you’re never outta danger.
Little boy blue, now it’s up to you.
Little boy blue, you’re such a lone ranger.
In a world that’s gone mad and where no one’s really talkin’.
To you.

You broke important ties – who do you turn to.
Wait for answers from the sky – where do you turn to.
There’s so much that you hide – the hidin’ just burns you.
With those lies deep down inside – who can you turn to.

You’re looking at the world from a distant point of view.
What-a-you gonna do ?

Little boy blue, you’re never outta danger.
Little boy blue, now it’s up to you.
Little boy blu, the city kills the stranger.
In a world that’s gone mad and where no one’s really talkin’ to you.

On TV you watch the innocent burnin’.
You can help a little but that’s always been your way.
You try to simplify it, try to talk your way around it.
But that won’t bring the action closer to the words you say.
You ask a 1000 whys.
Wait for answers from the sky.
You’re starin’ at the world – there’s so little you can do.

Little boy blue, you’re never outta danger.
Little boy blue, now it’s up to you.
Little boy blue, you’re such a lone ranger.
In this world that’s gone mad and where no one’s really talkin’ to you.

Little boy blue, talkin’ to you.
Little boy blue, little boy blue.
The city kills the stranger in a world that’s gone mad and where no one’s really listening to you.
Little boy blue, listening to you.
Little boy blue, Little boy blue, the city kills the stranger in a world that’s gone mad and where no one’s really talkin’ to you.

99 DAYS

Don’t wanna smash your china.
Don’t want you to break your chastity vow.
Don’t wanna be your soul refiner.
Just wanna be a friend somehow.

Don’t wanna steal your wild flower honey.
Don’t wanna change the ways of your heart.
Don’t wanna be your one and only.
Just wanna be a name on a business card.

Chorus
Just gimme 99 days, that’s what it takes.
But leave out romance.
And in the end we’ll only need, just one more day.
Then we’ll touch and get into a state of trance.

Don’t wanna blow your fuse.
Don’t want you to get nervous, shooting targets on sight.
Don’t want fear to get a hold on you.
Just wanna make you feel safe at night.

Don’t wanna smash your china.
Don’t want you to break your chastity vow.
Don’t wanna be your soul refiner.
Just wanna be a friend somehow.


CRYSTAL WALL

Well you wake up in the mornin’ got a job to do.
It’s a job you have to fake it or else it makes you blue.
You feel the consequences burnin’.
You don’t stick to the rules.
Once the engine starts a turnin’.
It’s too late to check the fuel.

That little ol’ lady with the fancy clothes.
Thinks she’s Fara Dibah.
She looks you in the eye and the tension grows.
She’s the Queen of Sheba.
And there ain’t no room that’ll lock up your moon.

Chorus
No one can break through the crystal wall.
No one can break through the crystal wall.
You know I’ll always wait the gate.
Of your crystal wall.

Well you wash your hair while it’s rainin’.
The weather’s so untrue.
You take a lot without complainin’ but.
That ain’t really you.

That little ol’ lady bossin’ everyone.
Wants to show her power.
The image of a woman rulin’ everyone gets.
Smaller by the hour.
And there ain’t no one stealin’ away your sun.

Chorus

There were times that I called you, your voice sounded clear and free.
Times that I told you, this man is running on empty.
Times that you and I should make a choice down on our knees.
Every time that I look at you, I pray Lord, let it be me…

LISTEN TO THE RAIN

I listen to the rain it’s pourin’ down.
I listen to my heart and its favorite sound.
I wonder if the rain on Mars hits the ground.
I wish you could be around.

I listen to the walls you’ve been talkin’ to.
I listen and I listen but nothin’s comin’ through.
I thought I saw a face through the foggy dew.
I thought that it was you.

Chorus
Letting go was the only thing to do.
Guess I’ll never get used to this missin’ you.
I listen to the sound fo the moonlit rain.
And I miss you Jane.

I listen to your voice inside my head.
Whisperin’ all the words I remember you said.
There ain’t a single moment that I regret.
Thank heaven that we met.

Chorus

I listen to the sound of the storm inside.
There ain’t no stoppin’ this rage in my mind.
I’m tied up to the mast til the hurricane’s died.
Where are you tonight.

I listen to the rain and the pain subsides.
Some tears never get the chance to leave the eye.
I wonder if the rain on Mars is dry.
I just wonder why.

Chorus

 

BETTER WORLD

All these changes.
All this misery.
Movin’ in golden cages.
To the end of a century.

I’ve been waitin’ and waitin’ for.
A long long time.
Waitin’ for a sign.

Chorus
There is a better world they say.
There is a better world on its way.
I don’t believe a word of promises being made.
All I get is hurt, I wonder why and wait.
All these races.
All their mysteries.

All these desperate faces.
Hopin’ for a change of scene.

They’ve been waitin’ and waitin’ for.
A long long time.
Waitin’ for a sign.

Chorus

I should keep up faith, try not to drift astray.
I’m the weakest of us all.
The strength that’s left is fading away.

Chorus

ALL MY DREAMS

Tears, won’t stop the rain from fallin’.
Fear, won’t stop the thunder from rollin’.
And I can’t stop feeling the way I do.
Silence, won’t stop the child from babblin’.
Sleep, won’t stop my mind from ramblin’.
And I can’t stop my heart from lovin’ you.

Chorus
And all my dreams that I keep for you.
Lockes up deep inside.
I’ll show you these dreams if you want me to.
Hold them to the light.

Darkness – won’t stop the wolf from howlin’.
Sadness – won’t stop the fool from smilin’.
And I can’t stop myself from needin’ you.
Fire won’t stop the earth from givin’.
Water won’t stop Atlantis from livin’.
And I can’t stop myself from lovin’ you.
