Dive (LYRICS)

1. Dive

From space, the planet is blue
From space, the planet is the territory
Not of humans, but of the whale
2. Captain Nemo

Under the surface so crystal clear
Everyone was really tense
Waiting down there
He had his own world just like I had mine
We'll go separate ways 'til the next time
There are no words to say
(There are no words to say)
As my friend swims away
(As my friend swims away)

Captain Nemo said, "Okay"
Five, four, three, two, one
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
Love me when I'm gone
Left me all alone, Nemo's going home

And as I watched him, police boats approached
An alien force haunting us like ghosts
"Wish I could stay here and play for a while
But I must be on my way"
The warmest of smiles
Then he dived into the waves
Among the other whales

Captain Nemo said, "Okay"
Five, four, three, two, one
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
Love me when I'm gone
Left me all alone, Nemo's going home...

Captain Nemo said, "Okay"
Five, four, three, two, one
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
Love me when I'm gone
Left me all alone, Nemo's going home
Going home
Captain Nemo said, "Okay"
Five, four, three, two, one
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
Love me when I'm gone
Left me all alone, Nemo's going home
Going home
Captain Nemo said, "Okay"
Five, four, three, two, one
Then I raised my hand and waved
Captain Nemo went away
Love me when I'm gone
Left me all alone, Nemo's going home
3. The Second Element

Eyes were glancing
Hopes set high
But just another day went by
Tears are falling
Like never before
Still she's staring at the door
Broken promise
Will you understand
My heart is in your little hand

I hear you call my name

And always you'll be
Blood and soul part of me
The second element
I am longing for you
And always you'll see
That you reflect on me
My second element
Are you missing me too?

Time keeps moving
She's in so deep
And she cries herself to sleep
Angels dancing
In the night
And she cuddles up real tight
Children's laughter
Sunny day
Never more I go away

Just like and endless dream

And always you'll be
Blood and soul part of me
The second element
I am longing for you
And always you'll see
That you reflect on me
My second element
Are you missing me too?
And always you'll be
Blood and soul part of me
The second element
I am longing for you
And always you'll see
That you reflect on me
My second element
Are you missing me too?
4. Ship Of Fools

Remember the day
When I first set my eyes on you and
You said the same
Seemed like everything was right for us
Endless nights of loving
All my doubts and fears went away
So tell me what went wrong
Now I need you

Do anything to get to you
'Cos we're riding on a ship of fools

Now you're not the same
And all that's left are memories of
The times that we had
Seems like it always has to end this way
But now I know your secrets
And the time is right to tell
To tell me what went wrong
Can you hear me?

Do anything to get to you
'Cos we're riding on a ship of fools

Do anything to get to you
'Cos we're riding on a ship of fools
5. Once In A Lifetime

Cuando anochezca
Te esperare
Quiero volverte loco esta noche
Con la luna llena
Te esperare
Hoy moriras entre mis brazos
Nunca soñaste algo igual


Let me dive in
To pools of sin
Wet black leather on my skin
Show me the floor
Lay down the law
I need to taste you more

Then I feel your sea
Raining down on me
Can this be my once in a lifetime
Hell's at heaven's door
As I need you more
You know you're my once in a lifetime

Todo tu cuerpo temblara
Pero esta vez, es realidad
Aunque el tiempo pase
Nunca, nunca lo olividaras
Sera
Solo una vez en tu vida


When you take me
And make me cry
Then I feel you satisfy
Show me the cage
It's all the rage
And lock it up

Found a part of me
That's a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the moon is high
Passion never dies
Will you want me for all a lifetime

Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime

Giving you my soul
Letting you control
Took away a part of my lifetime
Memories of you
Left me black and blue
Now I know you're once in a lifetime

Then I feel your sea
Raining down on me
Can this be my once in a lifetime
Hell's at heaven's door
As I need you more
You know you're my once in a lifetime

Found a part of me
That's a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
When the moon is high
Passion never dies
Will you want me for all a lifetime

Then I feel your sea
Raining down on me
Can this be my once in a lifetime
Hell's at heaven's door
As I need you more
You know you're my once in a lifetime

Found a part of me
That's a mystery
That will be just once in a lifetime
6. Cape Horn

"It was like riding a cork over a waterfall sir
and wind is not the name
for what blows in your face
it's something made of iron
swings at you from the west
never changing day in and day out
with seas as high as the neigh-mast.
We had life-lines rigged everywhere sir
and there were still sixteen men
washed overboard."

"Cold?"

"Three men froze in the yards
frozen stiff sir
couldn't get them down
without cutting their fingers loose
from the shrouds
I was lucky..."


7. A Salty Dog

All hands on deck
We've run afloat
I heard the captain cry
Explore the ship
Replace the cook
Let no one leave alive
Across the straits
Around the horn
How far can sailors fly
A twisted path
Our tortured course
And no one left alive

We sailed for parts
Unknown to man
Where ships come home to die
No lofty peak
Nor fortress bold
Could match our captain's eye

Upon the seventh sea sick day
We made our port of call
A sand so white
And seas so blue
No mortal place at all

We fired the gun
And burned the mast
And rowed from ship to shore
The captain cried
We sailors wept
Our tears were tears of joy
How many moons
And many Junes
Have passed since we made land
A salty dog
The seaman's log
Your witness, my own hand
8. Siren

(instrumental)
9. Seven Seas

Waters deep
Waters blue
That gently flow
From me to you

The coloured voice
Its vibrant tones
The hidden force
Of the big crystal blue

And by the light
Of the silvery moon
The wild horses
Come running home...

Miles apart
But still entwined
I like to think
That you sit here too

And let your thoughts
And let your soul
Be gently lulled
By what's in front of you

Too many ashore
And the distant land
The seas unite
Bringing me to you

Waters deep
Waters blue
That gently flow
From me to you

The coloured voice
Its vibrant tones
The hidden force
Of the big crystal blue

And by the light
Of the silvery moon
The wild horses
Come running home
10. Johnny Wanna Live

I got something on my mind
Makes me sad and makes me cry - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Just an ordinary day
An animal will pass away - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Who's to say he got no rights
Even not a right to life
Don't know why it leaves you cold
Don't know how to make it show - oh no
Johnny wanna live
Johnny wanna live

Got to give his skin away
For coats they wear on summer days - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Beauty aid and all the rest
Come directly from a test - oh no
Johnny wanna live

Through his eyes I look inside his heart
He can feel like me and you
Can't defend himself cause he can't talk
And this is why I talk to you

Johnny isn't just a name
He stands for every creature's pain - on no
Johnny wanna live
Johnny wanna live

Go and try to look inside his heart
You can find your own mistakes
Try to hide them thinking he can't talk
But he can read them in your face

Oh tell me why it leaves you cold
I swear I'm gonna to make it show - oh no
Johnny wanna live - oh no
Johnny wanna live ...
Johnny wanna live ...
Johnny wanna live ...
Oh, ooh, oh
Johnny wanna live ...
Oh Johnny wanna live ...
Johnny wanna live ...
Oh Johnny
Johnny wanna live ...
Johnny wanna live ...
Johnny wanna live ...
Johnny wanna live ...
11. By Now

I look in your eyes and
I see a little bit of heaven in view
I face your disguise and
I see you running too
A teardrop of silence
That's dissipating in an ocean of blue
So let me dive under
In memory of you

By now it's loving and affection
By now it's love
I think you better run, better come...
By now it's loving and affection, baby
By now it's love
I think you better run, better come...

And will you still see me
When I am lying under heavenly skies
And will you still feel me
When I reach out to you
And when it's all over
Just let me dive into the
Pools of your eyes
And then I'll float timeless
Into a part of you

By now it's loving and affection
By now it's love
I think you better run, better come...
By now it's loving and affection, baby
By now it's love
(I think you better run baby)

By now it's loving and affection
By now it's love
I think you better run, better come...
By now it's loving and affection, baby
By now it's love
(I think you better run baby)

By now it's loving and affection
By now it's love
I think you better run, better come...
By now it's loving and affection, baby
By now...
12. Island

What is life revealing
But base reality
Take it how you want to
Nothing comes for free
We go all around believing
In perfect harmony
Who tells us that's the right way?
Just open up and see

Like living on an island
I'm lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I'm drifting without end
Somehow believe in this dream of life
Like living on an island

Never ending questions
A trip through darkened space
Sometimes getting nearer
To question asked with grace
But in the end it's all believing
In whichever way you will
The answer or the mystery
Once black is now too white

Like living on an island
I'm lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I'm drifting without end
Somehow believe in this dream of life
Like living on an island

Like living on an island
I'm lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I'm drifting without end
Somehow believe in this dream of life
Like living on an island

Like living on an island
I'm lost no land in sight
Like living on an island
I'm drifting without end...

Doo, doo, doo...
13. When It Rains In America

Do you wanna feel freedom
Do you wanna see sun and rain

Do you wanna be near me
Do you wanna light up the way
A strange magical feeling
That maybe baby we'll find someday

I thought I heard you laughin'
I never wanted to make you cry
I only needed a reason
To see a teardrop caught in your eye
'Cause lovin' you keeps me from the storm

When it rains in America

There's a place we can run to (aaah)
Far away from the city stare
Where's the ocean's a desert (aaah)
But the wind still blows in your hair
Where we can watch the sun go down

When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America...
When it rains in America

'Cause loving you keeps me from the storm

When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
Oh...
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
When it rains in America
14. La Mer

Ancient unkown animals
On a stormy sea
Like Buddha in the water
A velvet energy
As the night takes over
The spirits of the deep
Marvel at his majesty
The whale is in his sleep...

La mer, you're shimmering through
La mer, magnificent blue

Shimmering through the water
In search of sanctuary
Currents travel faster
In alien territory
Dancing in the distance
In a puff of spray
In a single moment
The dolphin glides away...

La mer, you're shimmering through
La mer, magnificent blue
La mer, you're shimmering through
La mer, magnificent blue

La mer...
15. The Second Element II

Burning fire
A light in the dark
Shining day and night for me
Flowing water
The source of our life
Covering the world in blue
Gentle air blowing
Caressing my face
Carry me into dreams of love

The endless symphony ...

Wasn't it you
Who was filling my dreams
The second element
Everywhere you are rife
Wasn't it you
Who was filling the streams
The second element
With the power of life

Creeks are winding
Just seeking their way
Hardly tryin' to reach the sea
Raindrops falling
From skies to the earth
Bringing life to you and me
Lakes of silence
A magical sound
Keeping secrets in the ground

A perfect harmony ...

Wasn't it you
Who was breaking the light
The second element
And the rainbows arise
Wasn't it you
Who was standing a fight
The second element
From the earth to the skies

Wasn't it you, who was filling my dreams
Oh wasn't it you, who was filling the streams
Wasn't it you, who was breaking the light

Oh wasn't it you ... ?

Aaah...
