1. Join Me

intro: (Sarah Brightman & choir)
Oooh..

Will you join me?
Aaah
Will you join me?
Oooh
Will you join me?
Oooh...

verse:
We are so young,
Our lives have just begun
But already we are considering
Escape from this world

And we've waited for so long
For this moment to come
We're so anxious to be together
Together in death

chorus: (Sarah Brightman & choir)
Won't you die tonight for love?
Will you join me in death?
Won't you die?
Will you join me in death?
Won't you die tonight for love?
Will you join me in death?
Join me in death...

verse: (choir)
This world is a cruel place,
And we here only to lose
So before life tears us apart,
Let death bless me with you
Ooh

chorus: (Sarah Brightman & choir)
Won't you die tonight for love?
Will you join me in death?
Won't you die?
Will you join me in death?
Won't you die tonight for love?
Will you join me in death?
Join me in death...

Ooh
This life ain't worth living
This life it ain't worth living...
Join me, join me
This life ain't worth living...
Join me, join me
This life ain't worth living...

chorus: (Sarah Brightman & choir)
Won't you die tonight for love?
Will you join me in death?
Won't you die?
Will you join me in death?
Won't you die tonight for love?
Will you join me in death?
Join me in death...

This life ain't worth living


2. Be

Lost
On a painted sky
Where the clouds are hung
For the poet's eye
You may find him
If you may find him

There
On a distant shore
By the wings of dreams
Through an open door
You may know him
If you may...

Be
As a page that aches for a word
Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
And the one God will make for your day
Sing
As a song in search of a voice that is silent
And the Sun God will make for your way

Aaah...

And we dance
To a whispered voice
Overheard by the soul
Undertook by the heart
You may know it
If you may know it

While the sand
Would become the stone
Which begat the spark
Turned to living bone
Holy, holy
Sanctus, sanctus

Be
As a page that aches for a word
Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
And the one God will make for your day
Sing
As a song in search of a voice that is silent
And the one God will make for your way


3. Blasphemous Rumours

Girl of sixteen
Whole life ahead of her
Slashed her wrists
Bored with life
Didn't succeed
Thank the Lord
For small mercies

Fighting back the tears
Mother reads the note again
Sixteen candles burning in her mind
She takes the blame
It's always the same
She goes down to her knees
And prays

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

Laughing...

Girl of eighteen
Fell in love with everything
Found new life in Jesus Christ
Hit by a car
Ended up
On a life support machine

Summer's day
As she passed away
Birds were singing
In the summer's sky
Then came the rain
And once again
A tear fell
From her mother's eye

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

Aaah...


4. Only You

Aaah...

Looking from a window above
Is like a story of love
Can you hear me?
Came back only yesterday
keep moving further away
Want you near me

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

Sometimes when I think of your name
When it's only a game
And I need you
Listen to the words that you say
It's getting harder to stay
When I see you

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

Aaah...

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

This is gonna take a long time
And I wonder what's mine
Can't take no more
Wonder if you'll understand
It's just the touch of your hand
Behind a closed door

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

Aaah...


5. Blue Monday

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are

Thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They will turn away no more

I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbour
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortunes
I'd be a heavenly person today

And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how should I feel

Now I stand here waiting...

I thought I told you to leave me
When I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold

6. Sacrifice

It's a human sign
When things go wrong
When the scent of her lingers
And temptation's strong

Into the boundary
Of each married man
Sweet deceit comes calling
And negativity lands

Cold cold heart
Hard done by you
Some things look better
Just passing through

And it's no sacrifice
Just a simple word
It's two hearts living
In two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice
No sacrifice
No sacrifice at all

Mutual misunderstanding
After the fact
Sensitivity builds a prison
In the final act

We lose direction
No stone unturned
No tears to damn you
When jealousy burns

Cold cold heart
Hard done by you
Some things look better
Just passing through

And it's no sacrifice
Just a simple word
Two hearts living
In two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice
Sacrifice
Sacrifice at all

Aaah...
I gave my heart


7. Ordinary World

Came in from a rainy Thursday
On the avenue
Thought I heard you talking softly
I turned on the lights, the TV
And the radio
Still I can't escape the ghost of you
What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some'd say
Where is the life that I recognise?

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence
Once prompted you to say:
"Pride will tear us both apart"
Well now pride's gone out the window
Cross the rooftops, run away
Left me in the vacuum of my heart
What is happening to me?
Crazy, some'd say
Where is my friend when I need you most?

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside
Tell of suffering and greed
Here today, forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here besides the news
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

And I don't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Everyone, is my world
Any one, is my world
Any one, is my world
Everyone, is my world


8. Fields Of Gold

You'll remember me
When the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell
As her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me,
Will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise, when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We will walk in fields of gold...

Many years have passed
Since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me
When the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

10. I Won't Hold You Back

If I had another chance tonight
I'd try to tell you that the things
We had were right
Time can erase the love we shared
But it gives me time to realise
Just how much you cared

Now you're gone, I'm really not the same
I guess I have myself to blame
Time can erase the things we said
But it gives me time to realise
That you're the one who's sad

You know I can't hold you back now
The love we had just can't be found
You know I can't hold you back now

Now that I'm alone it gives me time
To think about the years that you were mine
Time can erase the love we shared
But it gives me time to realise
Just how much you cared

You know I won't hold you back now
The love we had just can't be found
You know I won't hold you back now...

Aaah...

You know I won't hold you back now
The love we had just can't be found
You know I won't hold you back now
The love we had just can't be found
You know I won't hold you back now


11. Wicked Game

The world was on fire
And no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire
Will make foolish people do

I never dreamed that
I'd meet somebody like you
I never dreamed that
I'd lose somebody like you

No I don't want to fall in love
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you

With you (with you)

(this world is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game to play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do
To make me dream of you

And I don't want to fall in love
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you...

The world was on fire
And no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire
Will make foolish people do

I never dreamed that
I'd love somebody like you
I never dreamed that
I'd lose somebody like you

No I don't want to fall in love
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you (with you)

(this world is only gonna break your heart)
With you (with you)
(this world is only gonna break your heart)

No I...
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
(this world is only gonna break your heart)
