I'm standing on the edge of the world
All by myself
Thinking about you and no one else
Cos you're the one
You're the only one
Yeah you're the one
You're the only one
You're the only one that could mess me up
And kick me down
Put an arrow through my heart
And twist it all around
Ooh you're the only one
I've been walking all through the night
And dreaming all day
I ain't got nothing left to say
Except you're the one
You're the only one
Yeah you're the only
You're the only one
You're the only one that would pin me up
Just to rip me down
Take your place in my heart
And turn it upside down
Ooh, You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
Yeah it's true
You're the only one
And I want you
You're the only one
I'm standing on the edge of the world
All by myself
Thinking 'bout you and no one else
Cos you're the one
You're the only one
Yeah you're the only one that would pin me up
Just to rip me down
Put an arrow through my heart
And turn it all around
Ooh you're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
You're the only one
To put an arrow in my heart
You're the only one

Landslide Of Love
[N.C. Sayer]
Falling For A Goldmine
[N.C. Sayer / M. Myers]

Landslide of love
Tonight to stars are shining
But inside I feel I'm dying
And there's no whisper in the wind
In my room I'm all alone
Waiting on the telephone
But I know it ain't gonna ring
That ain't the way it's meant to be
Every hour so long and empty
But I know that it ain't everything
Landslide of love you thrill me
Landslide of love you could kill me
Landslide you hit me from above
Landslide of love you keep calling
Landslide of love I keep falling
But I can never get enough
Landslide of love
A thousand times I've spared a thought
To all those whose hearts are torn
But it's so far way from home
Right until the bitter end
Who believes it would fall on them
'Till it cuts you to the very bone
Tragedy ain't for me
I was born to be free
But there's no escaping these chains
These chains of love
That will defy me
Like a power from above
These chains of love
Landslide of love you thrill me
Landslide of love you could kill me
Landslide you hit me from above
Landslide of love you keep calling
Landslide of love I keep falling
But I can never get enough
Landslide of love
Of love

As the nightime falls
I can see it all
Oh there's flowers growing
On the Berlin Wall
As the moon shines down
On the broken town
Her memories fall
Like gold dust to the ground
Marlene, Marlene
Your eyes sparkle while your diamionds shine
Marlene, Marlene
Your eyes sparkle while your diamionds shine
And I think I'm falling for a goldmine
She takes my hand
Shows me her plan
It's a ladder stretching
To another land
And in her eyes
The teardrops dry
As the stars all fall
Like jewels from the sky
Marlene, Marlene
Your eyes sparkle while your diamionds shine
Marlene, Marlene
Your eyes sparkle while your diamionds shine
And I think I'm falling for a goldmine
Now as the sun comes round
On this broken town
There are flowers lying
Dead on the ground
Marlene, Marlene
Your eyes sparkle while your diamionds shine
Marlene, Marlene
Your eyes sparkle while your diamionds shine
And I think I'm falling for a goldmine
And I think I'm falling for a goldmine
And I think I'm falling for a goldmine
And I think I'm falling for a goldmine
For a goldmine
For a goldmine
Down On You
[N.C. Sayer]
Song To The Stars
[N.C. Sayer]

You give me everything
Everything I don't need
You give me everything
Oh that ain't for me
And when I'm feeling high
You bring me down
And when you're coming by
That's when I leave town
I'm down on you
And I ain't got a care
I'm down but I'm not blue
Just down on you
Like all the dead-end pricks
You get your critical kicks
With anything that sticks
But you just leave me sick
And every empty can I see
In the gutter of a dead-end street
And everything that just ain't true
Reminds me of you
I'm down on you
And I ain't got a care
I'm down but I'm not blue
Just down on you
Down on you
Down on you
Down on you
Oh I'm down on you
I listened to my heart
It tells me the truth
And this is what it said...
I'm down on you
And I ain't got a care
I'm down on you
I'm down on you
I'm down on you
I'm down on you

He saddled a rocket to the stars
He saddled a rocket to the stars
He saddled a rocket to the stars
Now I don't know where you are
A whispered goodbye in velvet tones
Left my heart all tattered and torn
Packed all his things in a little case
Never to return to this place
He saddled a rocket to the stars
He saddled a rocket to the stars
He saddled a rocket to the stars
And let loose the sad in my heart
Now every beginning is the start of an end
I won't live 'till I see you again
Kiss Thier Sons
[N.C. Sayer]
Born To Be Sold
[N.C. Sayer]

[Unprinted lyrics - interpretations by Cam McAra and Luke Owen] Think you know the words? Send in your ideas!

Uh uh uh uh
<Kick it out>
If you went away and never came back
That would be too soon
The smell of your mouth would
Probably be still hanging in the room
<He is a boy well he stole your dream
He let you in a magazine>
But you're so full of shit
You couldn't even ever make that scene
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
It feels so good
I'm not you
All of the words that you wrote
Really were lots of fun
But I don't think I ever really realized
Anyone could be so dumb
So butt-fucked inside your head
Don't even know it's gonna get any better
<It didn't mean much to get you
No you didn't even print the letter>
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
It feels so good
I'm not you
<So John Young in your black and white>
OR
< .................... on your bathroom wall>

You should be in a hospital
Strapped down to one of those beds
And testing on some new drug
But I don't even think anyone would even
Know if you really got a tumor
You're so brain-dead it might even
Give you a sense of humor
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
It feels so good
I'm not you

It feels so good
<Now what happens>
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad glad

I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad
It feels so good
I'm so glad

From Elvis Presley to Marilyn
Cassius Clay to Billy the Kid
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
From Jackie O to J.F.K.
Little Richard and Lady Day
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Everyone played a different role
Baby they were born to be sold
They were born to be sold
They were born to be sold
Now all I know is all I see
And what I am I choose to be
I don't need no one to bleed for me
I'm gonna make my own history
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Here comes the news
Here comes the news
Baby, here comes the news, alright
I was born to be sold
All you hot shot, big buck
Sweet talking, side walking
Foot tapping, tail wagging
Back stabbing, money grabbing
Slaves of gold
I'm telling you, I don't need to be told
I cross my heart, rock my soul
Baby I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
From Valentino to Fonteyne
Al Capone to John Wayne
From Harley D to Lenny Bruce
Harry Dean to Betty Blue
From Sister Sue to Judy Teen
Marty Wilde to Morrisey
From Johnny Rotten to Charlie Chaplin
Madonna Ciccone to Little Satnin
And back to Elvis and Marilyn
Sugar Ray and Billy the Kid
Jackie O J.F.K.
Little Richard and Lady Day
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
Pay The Ghosts
[N.C. Sayer]
Bad Valentine
[N.C. Sayer]
You drive a Mercedes
But you still ain't paid the ladies
Your headlights are a shining
But your car it, it ain't riding
So don't pretend that you don't know me
Just pay me what you owe me
Pay the ghosts
Pay the ghosts
Pay the ghosts
I know you've been hiding
Down on the back streets you've been sliding
Harley Street you'll be finding
In a back seat you'll be riding
So don't pretend that you don't know me
Just pay me what you owe me...
Pay the ghosts
Pay the ghosts
Pay the ghosts
Nightime is a falling
Down the alley someone's calling
You best save your lying
In the sky there's a dark star dying
So don't pretend that you don't know me
Just pay me what you owe me...
Pay the ghosts
Pay the ghosts
Pay the ghosts
In the sky there's a dark star dying
You you best save your lying
Someone's calling

It feels like Spring again
You sprung this on me and then
It feels like Spring again
But I guess it never really ends
It just comes around again
And I collect all the cards that you sent
But I could not say
If I should stay
I might not even
Even remember your name
Oh what a shame
Oh I'm a bad valentine, a bad valentine
I'm a bad valentine
Oh I'm so bad, bad, bad, all the time
Oh I'm a bad valentine
Ooh I love you baby
Aah I love you maybe
Ooh I love you baby
Or maybe, maybe I'm just insane
It feels like Spring again
You sprung this on me and then
It feels like Spring again
But I guess it never really ends
It just comes around again
And I collect all the cards that you sent
But I could not say
If I should stay
No I might not even
Even remember your name
Ain't that a shame
Oh I'm a bad valentine, a bad valentine
I'm a bad valentine
Oh I'm so bad, bad, bad, all the time
Oh I'm a bad valentine
Oh I'm so bad, bad, bad, all the time
Oh I'm a bad valentine
Oh I'm a bad valentine
Oh I'm a bad valentine

Velveteen
[N.C. Sayer]
Once I could have held you
And never let you go
Now I see you calling me back
And I really do not know
"Velveteen, I want you back."
Things change and people change
And my mind just gets hazy
I truly thought I knew you
How wrong can you be
"Velveteen, I want you back."
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen, Velveteen
Well it's been a while
And things have been wild
But I've learnt to smile
Yeah now I smile
I can't spend my life
Waiting to get hurt
When you pay the price
You own the dirt
But I still think of you
Yeah I think of you
Think of you
Do you think of me
Think of me
Like I think of you
Well the days go by
And the wheels still turn
When the night comes down
The fire still burns
And the mind is strong
But the heart it yearns
Then the pain was gone
But it's now returned
"Velveteen, I want you back.
Velveteen, I want you back."
It was deep in the night
When he came through my door
He came to my room
At the end of the hall
He lent over the bed
And kissed my forehead
He brushed the hair from my eyes
And then began to slide...
Slide his hand down
Underneath the sheets
'Till he reached my waist
He didn't waste no time
He put his hand on my thigh
He put his thoughts in my mind
And I drowned in his eyes
As we began to slide...
Then he whispered soft
Like the sea in a shell
"Yeah I been away
Where I been I can't tell
But I got something for you
Yeah it's a memory
Hey Velveteen
Do you remember me..."
"Hey yeah I remember
I remember you
Hey yeah I remember
Remember you"
"You know I really want you
Yeah I love you too
You know I really want you
Velveteen."
"But you don't really love me
I know you say you do
But you never really loved me
Loved me true."
"I swear I really love you
I swear I want you too
I swear I really love you
Velveteen."
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen
Now the past is back
Knocking on my door
Breathing passion
Declaring all
Shining like a ring
With a hidden curse
Sayin' the same things
Just in different words
"I want you back."
Velveteen
"I want you back."
Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen, Velveteen
Velveteen
"Velveteen
I'm here for you
Velveteen
Always yours
You will be mine
Until the day..."
