I want to get back what got taken
From me so many years ago
I lived in a perfect world
And never knew it till it got destroyed

Is he ashamed? Are we to blame,
Or him, anyway? (We all know him)
Come and gone, carrying on,
Never be the same

Turnabout, turnabout is fair play
Well, when do we get our say?
The victims are the family
Denied the publicity

Is he ashamed? Are we to blame,
Or him, anyway? (We all know him)
Come and gone, carrying on,
Never be the same

What to say?
When I know you’ve heard it all before anyway
It never matters till it’s happening to you
He is free to pursue
While we’re imprisoned by our pain
What to do when it’s happening to you
(walk a mile in my shoes)

I want to get back what got taken
From me so many years ago
I lived in a perfect world
And never knew it till it got destroyed

Mandy, seems to me, might be guarding
Life’s sweet mystery, but she won’t tell me
Where she comes from
Holding all the keys
In the sun

Drinking from a stream, I’m so thirsty
For those perfect dreams you can give to me (only)
You’re the one
Holding all the keys
In the sun
Yes in the sun

Where she’s
whispering to me
Like the breeze off the sea
Walking through the shade
of weeping willow trees
That she so loves to see
She amuses me
but even when she leaves
I still believe
You’re the one who’s
Holding all the keys
In the sun
Yes in the sun

It was Sunday morning, or Sunday afternoon
Drawing back the curtains the sun was shining through
And I thought it was all in a dream
But it turned out to be true

Wipe a little sleep from the corner of my eye, and I
Slowly come awake to this fire in the sky
And it’s you lying there
Beside me on the bed, in the sun

And you know you’re the one who brings
All the light into my life
Shining in your hair, in your eyes
I see where all my inspiration lies…

It is dawning on me; dawning on me
It is destined to be – dawning on me

Go to sleep at night, create a perfect tune
Flying through the sky while the sun was shining through
And I thought it was all in a dream
But it turned out to be true

And it would be forgotten if you did not remind me
Every single morning I wake up and I see
That it’s you lying there
Beside me on the bed, in the sun

And you know you’re the one who brings
All the light into my life
Shining in your hair, in your eyes
I see where all my inspiration lies
Time and time again I wake up to find you there
And my world fills with light that is
Shining in your hair, in your eyes
I see where all my inspiration lies

It is dawning on me – Dawning on me
It is destined to be – Dawning on me
Dawning on me (are you coming along with me?)

You can fold up your wings
You can cuddle up with all your favorite things
But I haven’t got a clue
What puts me so much in love with you

You can hold up yourself
As a picture of nearly perfect health
But I haven’t got a clue
What puts me so much in love with you (ahh you…)

I’m in love, I’m in love – I’m in love
Don’t try to stop me ‘cause I’m
Thinking of one thing only
And it’s you (only you)

You can sing back to me
When you steal a look and smile it sets me free
Still I haven’t got a clue
What puts me so much in love with you

Are you listening to me now?
‘Cause I mean you…

I’m in love, I’m in love – I’m in love
I want to sing it to you
I’m dreaming of one thing only
And it’s you – always you, and a little love
I’m in love – I’m in love
It’s been forever, it’ll be a little more
Than an eternity for you – and me
You and me, darling

Tell me all about it girl and don’t make fun of me
If I can’t believe it came to me this easily
Write on…

It’s a hopeless situation when you can’t make love to me
You’re so far away, across an endless sea
Writing home to me
Ride home…

Take that flight
Don’t take your time
We’ll be together
Sooner than we might’ve if you
Take that flight

Tell me all about it girl but please, come home
Napoleon and Josephine had history to please
But I need you with me – I’ve been waiting centuries
You know the reason why (why…)

Take that flight
Take to the skies
Be like an eagle:
Elevate your sight
Take that flight

It’s the only way to go – I know you know

That night we talked alone
Is living on in my poor memory
I found a photograph
Brought it all screaming back to me

Confidentially I let you know
Just what I meant to mean – we were
Too tired to admit
That we were both a little scared to be
Falling; oh falling…

Who knew? (x2) Oh, did you?
We two – Who could’ve known
That you’d be the one?

I thought I could’ve died
Deep inside where I was bound to be (in your arms)
Embracing all new things I
Never knew what I was chasing after
Till I found it…

Who knew? (x2) Oh, did you?
Me and you – Who could’ve known
That you’d be the one to choose?
Who knew? (x2) Oh, did you (too) ?
Me and you
Who could’ve known?
That you’d be the one – to choose…

This is no infatuation –
Trust and it will be so

Take the road to freedom today
Every place you’ve ever been
Is on the way

Met a guy, name of James Dean
He proved his claim – I saw his ID

Had a heart attack when he was 17
He saw the edge and made it back
To run the tale by me

Oh Jimmy Dean
Take the road to freedom today
Every place you’ve ever been
Is on the way

Born in ’69 – what a time to be conceived!
Spent all his time tryin’
To find that scene…
(When will you find that scene?)

Jimmy Dean
Take the road to freedom today
Every thing you’ve ever been
Is in its place

I can only say that James, he believed
Living for today’s the only way
If you’ve been named James Dean (x3)
James (When’ll you find that scene?) (repeat to end)

I don’t mind
If you take away the things you gave me
That’d be just fine
Guess I never really had them anyway
I’ll be OK
I’m just fine
I don’t mind

I don’t mind
If I get what I’ve got coming to me
What is mine
Isn’t there for anybody else to steal
Not for real
I’m just fine
I don’t mind

I don’t mind
If the world gives up and calls it quits
On down the line
Overwhelmed with all that their ancestors did
They lost it
I’m just fine
I don’t mind
