Then The Heartaches Begin (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
My sadness it is growing
I'm sure it's started showing
This feeling's getting stronger
I can't hold back out much longer
It's swelling deep inside
Emotions I can't hide

Then the heartaches begin
I'm telling you
The heartaches begin

I need someone to guide me
Someone to reconcile me
To take away this pain
Before it starts again
But no one listens to me
Can't control what's set in deeply

Then the heartaches begin
I'm telling you
The heartaches begin

Break

Four stone walls surround me
An empty shell's all you see
My former self's departed
A man who's broken hearted
Loneliness is what I fear
Holding on to all that's dear

Then the heartaches begin
I'm telling you
The heartaches begin
I'm telling you child

 

Stop Right There (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
And the power you have over
Won't ever let me be
It's always holding me to you
And the strange things you say to me
Why do you play with me
It's just too sad to see

Stop right there
Tell me what you're doing to my mind in there
Tell me what you're doing, am I blind
Long ago everything about you was for me to hold
Now my thoughts about you won't stay cold

And in time I might slip away
Into the light of day
But with you I must stay it's true
Wishful thinking will just bring me down
It's plain to see you own
The ground I'm standing on

Break

Stop right there
Tell me what you're doing to my mind in there
Tell me what you're doing, am I blind
Long ago everything about you was for me to hold
Now my thoughts about you won't stay cold

And in time I might slip away
Into the light of day
But with you I must stay it's true
Wishful thinking will just bring me down
It's plain to see you own
The ground I'm standing on

 

Water On The Brain (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
I've just come in from out of the rain
It's wet outside the water runs down the drain
I go to bed 'cause my head's full of pain

And drip drip it's driving me wild
Drip, drip, it's driving me wild

Outside the window there's a pipe wearing thin
It lets the water do a dance on a tin
I try to sleep but it's making a din

And drip, drip it's driving me wild
Drip, drip it's driving me wild

Water on the brain, water on the brain
Water on the brain, water on the brain

Break

Drip, drip it's driving me wild
Drip, drip it's driving me wild

I toss and turn and my patience is weak
Go to the bathroom door and I take a peak yeah
The bath tap has started a leak

And drip, drip it's driving me wild
Drip, drip it's driving me wild
Drip, drip it's driving me wild
Drip, drip it's driving me wild

 

Lullaby To Tim (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
Would you like to slide down a rainbow
Catch a falling star in your hands
Chase a moonbeam right by your window
Close your eyes and you'll be there

In a land of dragons and castles
Be a knight in armour that shines
On a horse with trappings of silver
Close your eyes and you'll be there

You will be there
Hoping that no one will come and wake you up
You will be there
While the moon is peeping
As you lie a-sleeping
In your dream world

Break

You will be there
Hoping that no one will come and wake you up
You will be there
While the moon is peeping
As you lie a-sleeping
In your dream world

See the witches fly on their broomsticks
Stirring cauldrons, casting their spells
Kisses changing frogs into princes
Close your eyes and you'll be
Close your eyes and you'll be
Close your eyes and you'll be there

 

Have You Ever Loved Somebody (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
You say that you want me and now that you've got me you're gone
Think what you're doin' or else you'll regret what you've done
Don't come back tomorrow and say what we did wasn't right
You'll cry on your pillow and find it hard to sleep at night

Have you ever loved somebody
Don't you know just what it's like
Hurting someone that you're close to
Have you ever loved all night, all night

Remember what happened the last time that you said goodbye
Remember the saying that once bitten I'll be twice shy
It's no use me crying there is no denying it's right
When thinking has ruined the feeling that we had to fight

Have you ever loved somebody
Don't you know just what it's like
Hurting someone that you're close to
Have you ever loved all night, all night

If you hear people talking now
Will you laugh or cry
If you cry I'll sympathize with you
If you laugh I'll die
If you laugh I'll die

You say that you want me and now that you've got me you're gone
Think what you're doin' or else you'll regret what you've done
Don't come back tomorrow and say what we did wasn't right
You'll cry on your pillow and find it hard to sleep at night

Have you ever loved somebody
Don't you know just what it's like
Hurting someone that you're close to
Have you ever loved all night, all night

Have you ever loved somebody
Don't you know just what it's like
Hurting someone that you're close to
Have you ever loved all night, all night

 

You Need Love (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
When you love somebody that means a lot
So you give the best of what you've got
It's a reason for living to have someone
Without a love in your life you can't go on

You need love
I need love

When you're tired and worn out she'll run to you
And calm your restlessness and comfort you

You need love
I need love

No wonder that I always say
I can't live another day without you
Tell my friends I'm feeling fine
Then they know that I'm not lying about you

Break

All your life you'll know that your trust was right
When you're holding her close to you at night

You need love
I need love

 

Rain On The Window (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window
Reminds me of her
When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window

It was raining hard
The trees looked bare the night I met her
She was wet her hands were cold
The wind blew through her hair

Though I'd known her quite a long time
We were just good friends
So it didn't seem so strange
Inviting her back home

We sat by the fire
The flames brought out something in her
Melting all the cold
Projecting warmth I never knew

As the rain beat on my window
Did she understand
That in the glow of dying embers
Everything was planned

When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window
Reminds me of her
When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window

Break

Pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter, pitter-patter

We made love later on that night
While the rain beat on my window
I can't forget the things that happened
While the rain beat down on my window

Next time I saw her
I knew she didn't want to know me
If I disappointed her
I think she should have told me

Can't she understand
I only tried to be a man
She made me feel so ashamed
Of everything I am

When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window
Reminds me of her

 When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window
Reminds me of her

When I hear pitter-patter the rain on the window
Reminds me of her

 

Heading For A Fall (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
You say that you want me
I've no cause to doubt you
My friends tell me different that's all
They say that I'm blind
But I know all about you
I know that I'm heading for a fall
I know that I'm heading for a fall

I seem to be hypnotised by all your beauty
Subject to your beck and call
Your arms magnetise me
When I'm here beside you
I know that I'm heading for a fall
I know that I'm heading for a fall

Or am I wasting my time
Or am I wasting my time

Break

Or am I wasting my time
Or am I wasting my time

What is it about you that tempts me and taunts me
I can't understand it all
If I try to leave you I know that you'll haunt me
I know that I'm heading for a fall
I know that I'm heading for a fall

 

Ye Olde Toffee Shoppe (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
I press my nose against the pane
Of the little toffee shop
Day after day I save my pennies
To spend at the toffee shop

Come Saturday morn at nine o'clock
I stand on the cold stone street
A penny every day that I have saved
To buy myself some sweets

The nice little lady, old and grey
With glasses and shawl
Gives love away to good little boys
Who do as they are told

She's always telling stories
Of her childhood days
She couldn't buy the things I can
For families in those days

Break

Imagine the sweets that I can buy
With six pennies of my own
I always take my time to choose
The sweets I'll be taking home

Gobstoppers in my pockets
Barley sugar in my hand
Lollies you suck that last all day
And sherbet that looks like sand

 

When Your Light's Turned On (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
If I see the light's on in your room
If I see the light's on, I'll call on you
It's a signal that he's gone
So I'll call you when your light's turned on

I'll be happy to wait up until he goes
And I'll be happy to wait up until I know
That the coast's clear it's all right
So I'll call you when your light's turned on

Everything you say about me gets right home
That's why I put up with you this way
Everything you say about me gets right home
I wish that he would go and I could stay

Break

That the coast's clear it's all right
So I'll call you when you're light's turned on

Everything you say about me gets right home
That's why I put up with you this way
Everything you say about me gets right home
I wish that he would go and I could stay

Just for how long can our love go on like this
If you thought more about me you'd end all this
But when your light's on it's all right
So I'll call you when you're light's turned on

 

Leave Me (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
Leave me
If it gives you satisfaction
Slander my name all over the place
Don't you have an inclination
You're gonna ruin a reputation
Leave me

Tell me
Now I've got you in the corner
Won't you admit you've been telling me lies
I don't care about you
I'll get along without just
Leave me

It's so hard to please (hard to please) you, yeah
Tease (hard to tease) you, oh

Leave me
I don't ever want you near me
Pack all your things and get out of my sight
Your love was made of sand
I've had all I can stand
Leave me

Break

It's so hard to please (hard to please) you, yeah
Tease (hard to tease) you, oh

Leave me
I don't ever want you near me
Pack all your things and get out of my sight
Your love was made of sand
I've had all I can stand
Leave me

You've got to leave me baby
C'mon now
You've got to leave me baby

 

The Games We Play (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
Well I heard your mother say
What a pleasant boy you're going with
That I don't mean any harm
And I only want to play
Though I know she's just protecting you
You're just a little girl
Well if your mother only knew the games we play

When I take you home with me
All the family get along with you
Sitting all through tea
Wondering what we're gonna do
Leaving us alone
The temptation's far too strong
If your family only knew the games we play

Are you sure we're getting away with this
You cannot fool your mother or your father for long
Only time will tell
If they are right and we are wrong

Break

Are you sure we're getting away with this
You cannot fool your mother or your father for long
Only time will tell
If they are right and we are wrong

They know the games we play
There's no hiding things like this from them
We know we're not the first
And we'll never be the last
Everybody gets hung up
We might have to pay
And everybody knows the games we play
