Why Didn't You Believe (Sylvester / Clarke)
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

He asked for you to love one another
You turned your back and played on with your games
If you had listened, you would have discovered
The Bible would have told a different story

Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

I'm sick and tired of this old world
There's so many religions to believe in
If I’d have been alive at the time
I'd known where and what and why I am

Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

You got to believe (Gotta believe)
You got to believe (Gotta believe)
You got to believe (Gotta believe)
You got to believe (Gotta believe)
You got to believe (Gotta believe, gotta believe, gotta believe
Gotta believe, gotta believe, gotta believe, gotta believe)

You crucified the man who came to save us
Forgive them for they know not what they do
But I cannot forgive you what you did
I believed, why couldn't you

Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe
Why didn't you believe in Him
Why didn't you believe

 

Don't Give Up Easily (Hicks)
If a foolish fool like me
Can read you easily
Then something must be wrong

Something's different when we speak
It seems the past few weeks
Our love's not been so strong

Lovers have always had this problem
Ask anyone, you'll see
We've got to hang on ‘til it passes
Don't give up easily

If we say what's on our minds
We'd save a lot of time
Don't give up easily

I know you're feeling bad
Sometimes I make you sad
But when you're feeling sad
I'm feeling just as bad

Break

During the good times it's so easy
You are in love like me
Sometimes we feel we want to leave it
Don't give up easily

 If we say what's on our minds
We'd save a lot of time
Don't give up easily
Ask anyone, you'll see
They'll say the same as me

Don't give up easily

 

Look At Life (Sylvester / Clarke)
Look at life, take a look around you
Look at life, doesn't it astound you
See the colours of the sky
Watch the colours of a rainbow
We're so lucky, you and I
Look at life

It's there for us
So why don't we use it
Four seasons of the year
All you do is choose it

Warm summers bring the sun
And with the falling leaves the autumn
All the new things come with spring
Look at life

Break

Warm summers bring the sun
And with the falling leaves
We get the autumn
The autumn

You see a young boy pick a flower
Why does he do it
He picks it for the one he loves
That's why he does it

He sees the colours of the sky
Watches the colours of a rainbow
We're so lucky, you and I
Look at life

Look at life

Look at life, Look at life

Look at life, Look at life

 

Please Sign Your Letters (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
Please sign your letters
Please don't make me blue
Please sign your letters
Then I'll know it's you
Can't stop thinking of you
You're always on my mind
Please sign your letters
Please don't be unkind

I read your letter
I read most every line
You said you loved me
Said you would be mine
My heart was jumping
Something shook my mind
I found your letter was left unsigned

Please sign your letters
Please don't make me blue
Please sign your letters
Then I'll know it's you
Can't stop thinking of you
You're always on my mind
Please sign your letters
Please don't be unkind

Your letter said we'd met some time ago
I'd like to see you
But somehow you just won't show
I just don't know which way to go

Break

Your letter said we'd met some time ago

My Life Is Over With You (Clarke / Hicks)
You wanna explain, that's why you called
Save your breath it doesn't matter at all
Not now my friend 

You played your cards, and you made your choice
I don't wanna listen to your voice
Not now my friend

I've found a new part to play in life
There's different actors on my stage
I'll set the pace in a world without you
I don't want to hear the things that you say
'Cos my life is over with you

 Now you know what's on my mind
Don't call again 'cos you will find
I won't be here 

You chose your path to walk along
Now I can sing a different song
I hope that's clear

I've found a new part to play in life
There's different actors on my stage
I'll set the pace in a world without you
I don't want to hear the things that you say
'Cos my life is over with you

 Break

 I've found a new part to play in life
There's different actors on my stage
Good bye my love and don't feel sad
Just because I'm feeling glad
That you're not here

You go your way and I'll go mine
Maybe we'll meet some other time
Goodbye my love

I've found a new part to play in life
There's different actors on my stage
I'll set the pace in a world without you
I don't want to hear the things that you say
'Cos my life is over with you

 

 Please Let Me Please You (Hicks / Clarke)
What did you do today
You turned the other way
I tried to kiss you
But you laughed in my face

It's the wrong thing to do
Knowing that I love you
Don't be to hasty
The tables will turn

Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise
Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise

Break

Why are you different now
Did I hurt you somehow
If so, then tell me,
But don't laugh in my face 

If I said something strong
I'll admit I was wrong
Come on and tell me
But don't laugh in my face

Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you

Please let me, Louise
Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise

Break

I always treat you right
Why do you wanna fight
Go if you want to
But don't laugh in my face

If I try kissing you
Don't make me out a fool
Come on and tell me
But don't laugh in my face

Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise

Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise

Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise

Please, please, please let me please you
Please let me please you
Please let me, Louise

 

Do You Believe In Love (Sylvester / Clarke / Hicks)
Do you believe in love
Do you believe in love
There ain't no doubt about it
Everybody's gonna jump up and shout about it
Do you believe in love

Do you believe in love
Do you believe in love
There ain't no doubt about it
Everybody's gonna jump up and shout about it
Do you believe in love

Taking a walk down in the street
There's bound to be someone you can meet
Someone who believes in love
Someone who only needs a shove

Break

Going together hand in hand
Don't need a reason for what’s planned
Don't mess around, you gotta do it right
Do it right, you can stay all night 

Do you believe in love
Do you believe in love
There ain't no doubt about it
Everybody's gonna jump up and shout about it
Do you believe in love

Do you believe in love

Do you believe in love

 

Soldiers Dilemma (Clarke)
Please answer my question
Why do I have to go to war
I don't believe in the government's greed
I find the whole thing a bore

Well if you think that it's right
To fight well then fight
Well please don't ask me to join in
The trouble were in
How did it begin
Well please don't ask me to fight your war

I ain't tired of living
I like to keep in one piece
I don't like the odds you're giving
You ain't having me on a lease

I like to eat three meals a day
In my own lazy way
And you can keep your kitchen sweet
That you're giving away for free

Even after my protestin’
Seems I don't have any choice
You put a gun in my hand now
You say I'm fighting for peace

Break

Well it's just a lie
So why should I die
For something in which I don't believe
Well it's so hard
When you're shooting at me
Well all I can do is reply

Please answer my question
Why do I have to go to war
I don't believe in the government's greed
I find the whole thing a bore

 

Marigold : Gloria Swansong (Sylvester / Clarke)
The book I bought yesterday
I started to read
I found a small marigold
Pressed between leaves 

And with that small marigold
Well, I found a note
Saying "Please won't you write to me
'Cause I'm so alone"

So I'm going to write back today
Yes, I'm going to write right away

I started "Dear Marigold"
Not knowing her name
"I just had to write to you
'Cause I feel the same”

"You sound like that marigold
That I found today
The beauty was there to be found
But fading away”

"So I'm writing to you today
Yes, I'm writing to you right away

As I started writing
Well what can I say
I got to thinking
Where are you today

Brown leather cover
Is tired and torn
It's been such a long, long time
Since the flower was born

There's no need to write back today
I'm not going write right away

....................

Just like a swan she is gliding
Drifting from here unto there
She has no thoughts of dying
Winter does not mean despair

Warm summer nights left behind her
Thinking of things that she's done
Once were her friends all around her
But now she is only one

Swan, swan keep your feet off the ground
Keep flying around
It's lonely you've found
You were left on your own
You didn't do right
Not to take off and fly
When your friends left that night

Break

Swan, swan keep your feet off the ground
Keep flying around
It's lonely you've found
You were left on your own
You didn't do right
Not to take off and fly
When your friends left that night 

Someday I know you'll see something
That will bring back the memories of gold
You'll meet the friends that did leave you
No more to be left in the cold

And just like a swan you'll be gliding
Drifting from here unto there
You'll have no thoughts of dying
'Cause winter did not mean despair

 

You Love 'Cos You Like It (Sylvester / Clarke)
You love 'cos you like it
You like it because you're loving me
You touch 'cos you like it
You like it because you're touching me
You kiss 'cos you like it
You like it because you're kissing me
You hold 'cos you like it
You like it because you're holding me

We first met some time ago
I didn't know what it'd be like
Just because I'd been hurt before
I didn't know it could work out
I didn't know it could work out
I got something to shout

You love 'cos you like it
You like it because you're loving me
You kiss 'cos you like it
You like it because you're kissing me

 

It came so easily
Now I don't want to be free
'Cos something in my heart
Tells me I wanna be a part of you

Break

It came so easily
Now I don't want to be free
'Cos something in my heart
Tells me I wanna be a part of you

You love 'cos you like it
You like it because you're loving me
You kiss 'cos you like it
You like it because you're kissing me
You love 'cos you like it
You like it because you're loving me
You kiss 'cos you like it
You like it because you're kissing me

 

Reflections Of A Time Long Past (Calvert)

Instrumental Only Track

 

Goodbye Tomorrow (Clarke)
Now I see you and you laugh, my friend
"Didn't I tell you so," you say
I just want to be alone, my friend
Will you please just go away

Today goes on like any other day
It doesn't know, it doesn't care
Never knew what loneliness could mean
Having loved and then despaired

Goodbye tomorrow, I'm leaving you today
Goodbye tomorrow
Don't you be grieving 'cause I'm leaving
It won't matter to you anyway

Break

Now it's over what am I to do
Will I find another you
Can I be sure she'll know what loving means
Can someone else love like you

Goodbye tomorrow, I'm leaving you today
Goodbye tomorrow
Don't you be grieving 'cause I'm leaving
It won't matter to you anyway 

Break

Now it's over what am I to do
Will I find another you
Can I be sure she'll know what loving means
Can someone else love like you

Goodbye tomorrow, I'm leaving you today 

Goodbye tomorrow, I'm leaving you today

Goodbye tomorrow, I'm leaving you today

Goodbye tomorrow, I'm leaving you today
