Lyrics album ‘You Steal My Heart’

    
01 It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love (Remix)

(verse)

When everybody leaves you lonely
And times are worse than sad
And the world is falling on your head
Just remember for all you know
Good or bad, come what may
You’re gonna live tomorrow if you don’t die today

(chorus)

It takes a muscle to fall in love

(verse)

Now the fear got in me
It’s got in me deep
That’s where it’s gonna stay and never leave
Someone come and lay my worry
Someone come and kill my pain
Someone come and put me on my feet again

(chorus)

It takes a muscle to fall in love

(verse)

We gotta love one another
That’s what the good man say
But I got too much trouble going ‘round my head
Someone come and pick up my love
Take it all away
Feel like i’ll break down tomorrow
If I don’t die today

(chorus)

It takes a muscle to fall in love

02 You Steal My Heart 

(verse)

I found my happiness
when I fell in love with you
And I lost my lonelyness
when I had noting left to loose

(chorus)

You steal my heart

(verse)

With a smile in your eyes
and a quick stroke of your hands

(chorus)

You steal my heart

(verse)

You caught me unaware
I had wasted all my charms
And I could only give up myself
defenseless to your arms

You keep me your prisoner
in this tender loving chain

(chorus)

You steal my heart

You keep me your prisoner
in this tender loving chain

(chorus)

You steal my heart

03 Freedom 

(verse)

You plunder your wardrobe and your jewellery-box
Tonight you’re gonna hit the town and pull out all the stops
You put on your make-up and your city charm
Just to fight off the competition and do some harm

(chorus 1)

Somehow something’s missing
but you never listen
To the little voice that whispers
what you should know
That over time so long ago somewhere along the road
You lost your freedom

(verse)

You sip your Bourbon brandy and you sip your wodka lime
And everybody”s shouting ‘cause it’s Armageddon Party-time
A perfect tan and your latest must-have shoe
Your eyes made out of stainless steel but you don’s know what to do

(chorus 2)

Somehow something’s missing
but you never listen
To the little voice that whispers
what you should know
That over time so long ago somewhere along the road
You lost your freedom

(verse)

Then you walk into the night, not a cab in sight
just a lonely street in de dying neonlight
And you hear a whispering sound from the dark of town: Do you remember?

(chorus 3)

How your heart is aching
and your body’s breaking
‘Cause your soul is waiting
and you know it’s time
To take a dive into the deep of the ocean of your mind and find your freedom

(chorus 4)

And now there’s music playing
and your body’s swaying
And there’s no delaying
because you know it’s time
To take a dive into the deep of the ocean of your mind and find your freedom

04 Cover Me 

(verse)

Call it any name
Any name you choose
Call it any name
Any name will do

When the light comes into your life
It will set your heart aflame
When the light comes into your life
It sets the night ablaze

(chorus)
Cover me
‘Cause I’m going down
Cover me
As I hit the ground

(verse)

I would surely turn back time
All the way back to you
I would surely turn back time
Only if I could

(chorus)
Cover me
‘Cause I’m going down
Cover me
As I hit the ground

(verse)

So lonely, so tired
The night is falling fast
I’d better close my eyes
And go to sleep at last

05 All You Ever Give

Real Love
makes it worth living
I feel love
I can’t stop giving
All you ever give
will come back to you

06 What It Is About You 

(based on a poem by e e cummings)

(chorus)

I do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
The voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

(verse)

Somewhere I never travelled
your eyes have their silence
In your gesture of things which enclose me
which I cannot touch, cause there too near

(chorus)

I do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
The voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

(verse)

Your slightest look will easily unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers
You open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
Touching skilfully, mysteriously, her first rose

(chorus)

I do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
The voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

07 Baby Get It On

(chorus)

My baby get it on, get it in, get it out
Show me what it’s all about
Come on and make me happy

(verse)

Hey can’t you see
that I’m all in a trance
by the way that you dance
never felt this before
if it’s love
give me more

(chorus)

My baby get it on, get it in, get it out
Show me what it’s all about
Come on and make me happy

(verse)

Hey is it true
that you don’t have a clue
about the things that you do
never felt this before
if it’s love
give me more

08 Give it all you got

(verse)

A cloudy sky on a rainy day
Close your eyes it won’t go away
You seem so near but we don’t touch
I can give a lot but you take too much
Love is blind but I can see
All the tricks that you play on me
Why do you act like we are cool
Do you take me for ‘such’ a fool

(chorus)

Could you stop to hide your fears from me?
Would you dare to tell your dreams to me?
Do you still believe it will set you free
Give it all you got
Give it all you got

If we break it up, would it bring you down?
Do you really feel we can work this out     Would you still believe your a part of me?    Give it all you got
All the love you got

(verse)

Don’t be afraid to lose your grip
We still got time, don’t let it slip
You seem so near but we don’t touch
I can give a lot but you take too much
Say the word, and I’ll set you free
It’s here and now, just you and me
We can’t go on and live a lie
That’s one thing that you can’t deny

(chorus)

(bridge)

Don’t you see how much you mean to me
More than you’ll ever know
How I hate to see you go, oh no
Love is what we got and we got a lot
So don’t be unkind, so don’t be unkind
Make up your mind

(chorus)

09 A Change Of Mind

(verse)

So we set out on a journey
Into the great unknown
So we travel without warning
Into the danger-zone

(chorus)

Time is yours
Time is mine
What we need
is a change of mind

We can still set it right
All we need is to
stop and think of what we got
what we got to leave behind

(verse)

You stare at the road
that stretches ahead
And your mind takes a turn
to retracing your steps

But you cannot go back
to the days of the past
You just have to push on
and hope for the best

(chorus)

Time is yours
Time is mine
What we need
is a change of mind

10 You Give Me Wings

Burning like a fire
But never sees the sun

The dream was so real I could almost touch it
The dream was so real it was almost there
The dream was so real I could almost clutch it
But it slipped through my hands and went up up in the air

Burning like a fire
But never sees the sun

Say how would you like to dance with me
Drifting into dreams of mystery
And angels are looking down
With eyes of jealousy

You give me wings to fly

Burning like a fire
But never sees the sun

Home is were the heart is
And mine is here with you

Home is were the heart is

11 It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love (Reggae Version)

(verse)

When everybody leaves you lonely
And times are worse than sad
And the world is falling on your head
Just remember for all you know
Good or bad, come what may
You’re gonna live tomorrow if you don’t die today

(chorus)

It takes a muscle to fall in love

(verse)

Now the fear got in me
It’s got in me deep
That’s where it’s gonna stay and never leave
Someone come and lay my worry
Someone come and kill my pain
Someone come and put me on my feet again

(chorus)

It takes a muscle to fall in love

(verse)

We gotta love one another
That’s what the good man say
But I got too much trouble going ‘round my head
Someone come and pick up my love
Take it all away
Feel like i’ll break down tomorrow
If I don’t die today

(chorus)

It takes a muscle to fall in love

 

12 Song To The Siren

On the floating, shipless oceans
I did alll my best to smile
Till you singing eyes and fingers
Drew me love into your eyes
And you san, ‘Sail to me, sail to me’,
Let me enfold you’
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me
Were you here when I was full sail?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelost on your rocks
For you sang: ‘Touch me not, touch me not,
Comeback tomorrow
Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow

Well I’m as puzzled as a newborn child
I’m as riddled as the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or shall I lie with death my bride
Hear me sing: ‘Swim to me, swim to me,
Let me enfold you’.
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you
