1. Brothers In Arms

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be.
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms.

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire I've witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher.
And though they did hurt me so bad
In my fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms.

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones.

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die.
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms...


2. Scarborough Fair

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Without no seams nor needle work
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Between the salt water and the sea strands
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
And bind it all in a bunch of heather
Then she'll be a true love of mine.


3. Tears In Heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven.
I must be strong, and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven...

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven.
I'll find my way, through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven...
Here in heaven...
Here in heaven...

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knee
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please.

I must be strong, and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven...
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven...


4. Still I'm Sad

Still I'm sad...

See the stars come joining
Down from the skies,
Gently passing they kiss
Your tears when you cry.
See the wind of summer blow
Your hair upon your head,
See the rain, the falling rain, it's rain.
Still I'm sad...

Still I'm sad...

Oh my flowers, my tears
Just falling two days,
We are driving the night
To find they are lost.
Flower, flower the wind is blowing,
Time into my heart.
When the wind blows hard,
We are apart.
Still I'm sad,
Still I'm sad...

Still I'm sad...

Oh, oh, oh, oh,
Still I'm sad.
Oh, oh, oh, oh,
Still I'm sad...


5. When A Man Loves A Woman

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
He'd trade the world
For a good thing he's found.
If she is bad, he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts her down.

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said it ought to be...

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
Sleep out in the rain
If she said it ought to be...

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
Sleep out in the rain
If she said it ought to be...


6. Nothing Else Matters

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who you are
And nothing else matters...

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters...

Trust I seek, and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters...

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know...

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who you are
And nothing else matters...

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know...

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters...

Trust I seek, and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters...

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know...

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who you are
No, nothing else matters...


7. Fade To Grey

One man on a lonely platform
One case sitting by his side
Two eyes staring cold and silent
Shows fear as he turns to hide.

Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey...

Feel the rain like an English summer
Hear the notes from a distant song
Stepping out from a back-drop poster
Wishing life wouldn't be so long

Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey,
Ohoh... We fade to grey...


8. Losing My Religion

Oh life, is bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me.
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no I've said too much
I set it up...

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try...

Every whisper
Of every waking hour I'm
Choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool
Oh no, I said too much
I set it up...

Consider this
Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I've said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try...

That was just a dream
That was just a dream

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try...

That was just a dream
Try, try, try, try...
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream
Dream...

9. Vienna

We walked in the cold air.
Freezing breath on a window pane,
Lying and waiting.
The man in the dark in a picture frame,
So mystic and soulful.
A voice reaching out in a piercing cry,
It stays with you until.

The feeling has gone only you and I.
It means nothing to me,
This means nothing to me,
Oh, Vienna...

The music is weaving
Haunting notes, pizzicato strings,
The rhythm is calling.
Alone in the night as the daylight brings,
A cold, empty silence.
The warmth of your hand
and a cold grey sky,
It fades to the distance.

The image has gone only you and I.
It means nothing to me,
This means nothing to me,
Oh, Vienna...

Oh, Vienna...
Oh, Vienna...

This means nothing to me,
This means nothing to me,
Oh, Vienna...


10. The Sound Of Silence

Hello darkness my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while i was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobble-stone
Beneath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed
By the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs
That voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

Fools said I you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the well of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said the words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered
In the sound of silence...


11. Sebastian

Radiate simply, the candle is burning
So low for me
Generate me limply, can't seem to place
Your name, cheri.
To rearrange all these thoughts
In a moment is suicide
Come to a strange place, we'll talk over
Old times we never spied.

Somebody called me Sebastian
Somebody called me Sebastian
Work out a rhyme, toss me the time,
Lay me, you're mine
And we all know, oh yeah!

You're not gonna run, babe,
We only just begun, babe, to compromise
Slagged in a Bowery saloon,
Love's a story we'll serialise.
Pale angel face; green eye-shadow,
The glitter is out of sight
No courtesan could begin to decipher
Your beam of light.

Somebody called me Sebastian
Somebody called me Sebastian
Dance on my heart, laugh,
Swoop and dart,
La-di-di-da, oh yeah!


12. Don't Give Up

verse:
In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought i could fail.

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams
Have all deserted.
I've changed my face,
I've changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose...

chorus: (sarah brightman)
Don't give up - 'cause you have friends
Don't give up - you're not beaten yet
Don't give up -
I know you can make it good.

verse:
Though i saw it all around
Never thought i could be affected.
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn.

drove the night toward my home
The place that i was born, on the lakeside.
As daylight broke, i saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground.

chorus: (sarah brightman)
Don't give up - you still have us
Don't give up -
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up - 'cause somewhere
There's a place,
Where we belong...

verse: (sarah brightman)
Rest your head
You worry too much
It's gonna be alright,
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up...

verse:
Got to walk out of here
I can't take it anymore
Gonna stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below.
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river's flow
That river's flow...

moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs.

chorus: (sarah brightman)
Don't give up - 'cause you have friends
Don't give up - you're not the only one
Don't give up - no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up - you still have us
Don't give up now
We're proud of who you are...
Don't give up -
You know it's never been easy
Don't give up - but believe there's a place
A place where we belong...


13. Save A Prayer

You saw me standing by the wall,
Corner of a main street
And the lights are flashing
On your window-sill

Take a chance like all dreamers
Can't find another way
You don't have to dream it all,
Just live a day

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after,
Save it 'til the morning after...

Pretty looking road,
I try to hold the rising floods
That fill my skin
Don't ask me why I keep my promise,
Melt the ice
And you wanted to dance
So I asked you to dance
But fear is in your soul
Some people call it a one-night stand
But we can call it paradise

Don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
No, don't say a prayer for me now,
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after
Save it 'til the morning after.

Oh oh...

Save a prayer 'til the morning after
Save a prayer 'til the morning after
Save a prayer 'til the morning after,
Save a prayer 'til the morning after.


14. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

I have climbed the highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire
I have spoke with tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
Warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes, I'm still running

You broke the bonds
and you loosed the chains
Carried the cross
all my shame
All my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...
