The Great Pretender

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending I'm doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Ooh Ooh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not (you see)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Yeah ooh hoo
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Oh yes I'm the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not you see
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're
Pretending that you're still around


Foolin' Around

You're so beautiful you just lay it on me
Foxy lady you really are the greatest show in town
You want to play
You wanna eat your cake and have it your way
You got it easy and you don't give a damn
Foolin' around you just keep foolin' around with me

Walking down the street people watching closely
Such a tease you can turn on any man you want
You masquerade
You're the catch of the season every night and day
You you you don't have any time for me
You just keep foolin' around with me

Fooling around - everywhere I go you're the only only only sexy lady
Fooling around all you do is keep me hanging around
You're really so hard to please
You've gotta really watch that baby!

You just you just fooling around with me
You just you just fooling around with me
You keep fooling you keep fooling
Fooling...
Want to play but you always want it all your own way
You got it easy but you don't give a damn
Fooling around you just keep fooling around with me
Just keep fooling around with me yeah

I'm a fool fool fool fool for you baby keep fooling around
I'm a fool fool fool for you sexy babe keep fooling around
I'm a fool fool fool fool for you baby keep fooling around


Time

Time waits for nobody

Time waits for nobody
We all must plan our hopes together
Or we'll have no more future at all
Time waits for nobody

We might as well be deaf and dumb and blind
I know that sounds unkind
But it seems to me we've not listened to
Or spoken about it at all
The fact that time is running out for us all

Time waits for nobody
Time waits for no-one
We've got to build this world together
Or we'll have no more future at all
Because time - it waits for nobody

You don't need me to tell you what's gone wrong (gone wrong gone wrong)
You know what's going on
But it seems to me we've not cared enough
Or confided in each other at all (confided in each other at all)
It seems that we've all got our backs against the wall

(Time) Time waits for nobody
(Time) waits for no-one
We've got to trust in one another
Or there'll be no more future at all
(Time)

Yeah - Time waits for nobody
No no - Time don't wait for no-one
Let's learn to be friends with one another
Or there'll be no more future at all

Time (time) time (time) waits for nobody waits for nobody
Time time time time waits for nobody at all

Time waits for nobody - yeah
Time don't wait - waits for no-one
Let us free this world for ever
And build a brand new future for us all

Time waits for nobody nobody nobody
For no-one


Your Kind Of Lover

Now you say you're leaving me
I just can't believe it's true
You're my kind of lover
Wanna little bit of feeling
Add a little bit of meaning to my life
Wanna little bit of feeling
A little bit of sunshine to my life

I wanna be your kind of lover
Give a little bit of feeling
Just a little bit of feeling
Add a little bit of meaning to my life

I wanna boogie down with you brother
Boogie down with the bassman
Win love on the grandslam
I'll be there waiting when you call

Just step right into my heart
Come a little closer
Don't tell me that it's over
Make a brand new start
We can work it out just next to nothing
Work it out work it out just next to nothing
With feeling feeling feeling with feeling

We can work it out
Let me show you what I can do I can be your kind of lover
We can work it out
Let me show you what I can do I can be your kind of lover

I wanna be your kind of mother
Let's talk about loving right
Don't talk about doing wrong
Put a little bit of sense into your mind
We gotta talk it out man to man
Make each other understand
Right now a little happiness would be fine

Just step right into my heart
Come a little closer
Don't tell me that it's over
Make a brand new start
We can work it out just next to nothing
Work it out work it out just next to nothing
With feeling feeling feeling with feeling

We can work it out
Let me show you what I can do I can be your kind of lover
We can work it out
Let me show you what I can do I can be your kind of lover


Exercises In Free Love

Instrumental


In My Defence

In my defence what is there to say
All the mistakes we made must be faced today
It's not easy now knowing where to start
While the world we love tears itself apart

I'm just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong
For just a singer with a melody
I'm caught in between
With a fading dream

In my defence what is there to say
We destroy the love - it's our way
We never listen enough never face the truth
Then like a passing song
Love is here and then it's gone

I'm just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong
For just a singer with a melody
I'm caught in between
With a fading dream

I'm just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong
I'm just a singer with a melody
I'm caught in between with a fading dream
Caught in between with a fading dream
Caught in between with a fading dream

Oh what on earth
Oh what on earth
How do I try
Do we live or die

Oh help me God
Please help me


Mr. Bad Guy

Love Kills

Love don't give no compensation
Love don't pay no bills
Love don't give no indication
Love just won't stand still

Love kills - drills you through your heart
Love kills - scars you from the start
It's just a living pastime
Ruining your heartline
Stays for a lifetime won't let you go
Cause love (love) love (love) love won't leave you alone

Love won't take no reservations
Love is no square deal
Hey love don't give no justification
It strikes like cold steel

Love kills - drills you through your heart
Love kills - scars you from the start
It's just a living pastime
Burning your lifeline
Gives you as hard time won't let you go
Cause love (love) love (love) love won't leave you alone

Hey love can play with your emotions
Open invitation to your heart
Hey love kills
Play with your emotions
Open invitation to your heart to your heart
Love kills love kills
Hey hey

Love kills (kills kills kills)

Love can play with your emotions
Open invitation

Love kills - hey - drills you through your heart
Love kills - tears you right apart
It won't let go it won't let go

Love kills - yeah


Barcelona

Barcelona Barcelona
Barcelona Barcelona
Viva

I had this perfect dream
-Un sueno me envolvio
This dream was me and you
-Tal vez estas aqui
I want all the world to see
-Un instinto me guiaba
A miracle sensation
My guide and inspiration
Now my dream is slowly coming true

The wind is a gentle breeze
-El me hablo de ti
The bells are ringing out
-El canto vuela
They're calling us together
Guiding us forever
Wish my dream would never go away

Barcelona - It was the first time that we met
Barcelona - How can I forget
The moment that you stepped into the room you took my breath away
Barcelona - La musica vibros
Barcelona - Y ella nos unio
And if God willing we will meet again someday

Let the songs begin
-Dejalo nacer
Let the music play
-Ahhhhhhhh...
Make the voices sing
-Nace un gran amor
Start the celebration
-Van a mi
And cry
-Grita
Come alive
-Vive
And shake the foundations from the skies
Ah,Ah,Shaking all our lives

Barcelona - Such a beautiful horizon
Barcelona - Like a jewel in the sun
Por ti sere gaviota de tu bella mar
Barcelona - Suenan las campamas
Barcelona - Abre tus puertas al mundo
If God is willing
-If God is willing
If God is willing
Friends until the end
Viva - Barcelona
