Calling (Anderson/Meyer)

Five miles deep underwater
You hear their voices sing
Surely that must be to every man
A most fantastic thing

BRIDGE
Five miles deep underwater
You hear them singin

CHORUS
Calling...calling etc.

Put away the harpoon gun
You don't need it anymore
All we have for a memory
Is bones washed on the shore

BRIDGE

CHORUS

BRIDGE

And it's a most fantastic thing

Tell me how did we get this far
Are we about to lose
Does it come to late we realise
We've lost the chance to choose

BRIDGE

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Hear then calling...calling

And you will hear them sing
BRIDGE and CHORUS etc.


Frightened Kid (Anderson/Meyer/Johnston)

There was nowhere to run in the family
When mum and dad started fighting
Her brothers and sisters turning away
They were frightened

Though she worked hard at school
She never pulled a trick
The secrets to learning escaped her
The teacher said you're just a slow achiever

CHORUS
Just a frightened kid
Just a frightened kid
She's just a frightened kid

Just a frightened kid
There was nowhere to run
And there was nowhere to hide
Her tortured young mind
It was screaming
Hey
There's a person in here starting to drown
Won't you save me

I've got things in my head
I can't understand
I need some love and a helping hand
And her parents said
We just don't believe ya

CHORUS

She's wild on the streets
Just a frightened kid
Wild and alone
Just a frightened kid
She ran away and hid
Just a frightened kid


Suddenly (Anderson/Cichon/Beamish)

I only dreamed that I would find
A loving heart an open mind
To see the real me
And I hoped that you would be the one

A chance to talk a chance to grow
I'll take the risk let my feelings flow
I've found the words I need to say
The teacher said you're just a slow achiever

CHORUS
Suddenly you're seeing me
Just the way I am
Suddenly you're hearing me
So I'm talking just as fast as I can
To you
Suddenly every part of me needs to know
Every part of you

And now I know you are mine
You bring me love and peace of mind
You see the real me
And I know that you're the key

CHORUS - repeat

Suddenly openly you're all I want all I need you to be

Suddenly every part of me needs to know
Every part of you

Just you, it's you


Runaway (Anderson/Cichon)

A love like ours is slightly out of time here
We need to find a way to set our souls free
Oh come away if you wanna know
A perfect place
Where only love grows

Moon and tide sing a song never ceasing
Sad souls cry out for the love of the sea
Oh come away if you wanna know
A perfect place
Where only love grows

CHORUS
Runaway and love will grow while we're waiting
Runaway find an easier way
Runaway from the end of all reason
Runaway we gotta do it today

Wax and wane flows
The sea never ending
Sails in the wind
Singing come unto me
Come

Oh come away if you wanna know
A perfect place
Where our love grows

Repeat CHORUS X3
Repeat Runaway X5


Winnie Mandela (Anderson/Meyer/Cichon/Beamish)

Winnie Mandela born a princess
She's a prisoner in her own land
Her only crime was to fall in love
With a strong and honest man
Her only crime was she fell in love

Winnie Mandela knows of heartache
She's married but seldom a wife
She found the strength to rise above
The pain the trouble and strife
Oh yes she rose above the pain the trouble and strife

CHORUS
Winnie Mandela fuelled by the love of her land
Winnie Mandela lives for the love of her man
Her only crime was she fell in love

Winnie Mandela lives with real pain
Keeps it hidden until the night
For 20 years she has slept alone
Tears can never put that right
For 20 long years she's slept alone

Repeat CHORUS X2


Get It Right (Anderson/Cichon)

I bet you thought you had us beaten
I bet you thought you had it made
I'm here today giving you the warning

I'm gonna shake it up
Turn it round
Got to get it right

You had you're chance now we're taking over
Cause we want the changes now
Living answers to the questions
Gonna call it people power

CHORUS
Hey-got to get it right
Turn it round
Got to get it right
Ya listenin', got to get it right

And tell the world
Put a smile on your face
Put a dancing rhythm in your feet
Spread the word of the new revelation
To everybody that you meet

CHORUS repeat

Got to get it right
We're running out of air
Cause they're chopping down the trees
Running out of places to swim
Cause they're dirtying up the seas
I can feel a smile on my face
Feel an itchiness in my feet
Telling me telling me
Take it to the street
Shake it up 
Got to get it right
Ha-ha-ha
Got to get it right
Ain't fooling around
Listen, shake it up
Turn it round
Got to get it right, got to get it right
Say it after me
Turn it round
Let me hear ya, got to get it right
I want to hear ya, we're gonna put it right
Got to get...got to get it right


Say Goodbye (Anderson/Cichon)

Does destiny wait for me
Or is life just a charade
Are we beats from a single drum
Or jokers on parade

CHORUS
Some of us are winners
Some must lose
When you feel the power
It's time to choose
And say goodbye to your old ways
You won't need them
Goodbye to the old days
They won't be coming around
They won't be coming around
Again

CHORUS repeat

Goodbye to the old days
They won't be coming around
They won't be coming around
Again


Falling (Anderson/Cichon/Beamish)

I was never the one to go
Looking for love
Threw it to the wind
Trusting heaven above
Heartache and pain
I didn't need it again
But as time goes by
I find that I'm

CHORUS
Falling
Falling into your love
Now I'm calling
Cause it's never enough
When I make love with you
I find that it's true
I'm past the point of no return

I lived by the rule
That I'm safer alone
Cause love hurts so bad
When it's time to let go
Heartache and pain
I didn't need it again
But as time goes by
I find that I am

CHORUS repeat

Now as time goes by
I find that I'm

CHORUS repeat

Falling
Can't you hear me calling
Now that I'm falling
Do you hear me calling
Do you see me I'm falling
Can't you see me I'm falling


Clear And Simple (Anderson/Cichon)

There's a feeling
Growing deep inside of me
It's the only part of man
Wee all like to see
So let the goodness in man
Triumph once again
We'll fight fury
Gonna stop the mighty storm
We gotta plant new seed
We need to help it grow

To let the goodness in man
Triumph once again
And let the loving in man
Ease the pain away

CHORUS
You know it's just that simple
You know it's just that clear
From where I stand it's simple
We gotta start to care

For this world of ours
Hand in hand
And heart to heart
We gotta give more
Let the caring start

To let the goodness in man
Triumph once again
And let the loving in man
Ease the pain away

Repeat CHORUS X2

CHORUS Repeat

Hey yeah

CHORUS X2 Repeat


Michael O'Reilly (Anderson/Meyer)

Michael O'Reilly he's a desperate man
Fighting for his liberty
Michael O'Reilly he's a dangerous man
Fighting for his family

Michael O'Reilly he's a peaceful man
He's not a man too shy
Michael O'Reilly he believes in life
So he's not afraid to die

CHORUS
Hey Hey Hey
Don't be sad today
The people always win in the end
There'll come a day
The guns rust away
And Ireland will be free again

Michael O'Reilly truly loves his land
He loves it with his heart and soul
To his family he's a patriot
A rebel by the law he is called

There is only so far you can beat a dog
Before he turns around to bite
There's only so long you'll abuse a man
Before he stands up to fight

CHORUS X2 Repeat
CHORUS X2 Repeat

Sing it
Hey Hey Hey
Hey
There'll come a day
