Aqua Lyrics

WHO WILL STOP THE RAIN ?
This problem is insoluble
The answers seem impossible
The logic ceases to exit
Emotion is the beat we miss

I stand on a world
Where dreams, realities, existence are the same
We take from our motherïs skin
But the world is not to blame

CHORUS
Who tells the wind which way to blow ?
I wonder who will stop the rain
The rocks that hold the secrets, they donït know
So who can stop the rain ?
Weïve lost the path for all we know
Now tell me when will it start again ?
And as the old man lifts his hands
Please can you stop the rain

Stars fall far away
Like they never did before
A new moon shining
Like it never will again

CHORUS

Desert white cloud
Spirits they sing
Rain falls from the big sky
Onto broken wing

There is no sense in turning back
To wash the d‚bris from the track
World without reason without rhyme
We fought for peace within our time

CHORUS



BACK IN TOWN
Wheels turn - smoke rise
Chrome wings - low ride
Freeway - red line
To city lights electric I glide
If thereïs escape from your illusion
You gotta break the whole constitution

Concrete - touch sky
Main street - dogs lie
Steel bird - black tie
Is this what they call the freedom you buy ?
Look at him behind the delusion
All you hear is the voice of confusion

CHORUS
The bad boyïs back
The bad boyïs back in town
The bad boyïs back
Donït you shoot him down

Wheels spin - ace high
No win - no life
One world - truth lies
Loveïs just a word on a red neon sign
If thereïs escape from the conclusion
You gotta shake the whole institution

CHORUS

If thereïs escape from your illusion
You gotta break the whole constitution

CHORUS



LOVE UNDER FIRE
Love under fire
We stand in the flame
Now and forever
After the rain
When is forever ?
You can take it from me
It may be never
Cïest la vie

Love under fire
And we stand in the flame
Now and forever
After the rain
When is forever ?
You can take it from me
It may be never
Just wait and see

You can hide in the jungle
You can climb up a tree
You can scan the horizon
Tell me what do you see ?
As cold as a mountain
With a heart that can freeze
Thereïs a storm on the water
With every heart that she sees

Love under fire



SOMEDAY
Donït want to live in another world
Donït want to dream of another girl
Thatïs the way it was meant to be

I couldnït sleep through the lonely night
I just cried till the morning
Itïs not the way it was meant to be

CHORUS
Someday you may find somebody else
Someday love may shine on you
Someday you may find the one

You didnït leave me, you ran away
Couldnït face what you had to say
Itïs not the way it was meant to be

Now you can live in your other world
Me, Iïve found me another girl
And thatïs the way that it has to be

CHORUS

When I dream, I dream of one world
But I know thereïs no such place
If I could ever find that one girl
In my world, in my world

CHORUS



LITTLE RICH BOY
Donït read 'Marx'
Heïs a clean cut guy
Just the dream
On a TV eye
If you swim
In the dark
You lose a hand
When you feed the shark

CHORUS
Little rich boy, sheïs gonna find you
Littl rich boy
Little rich boy, those claws will blind you
Just a little rich boy

She got hooks
In your veins
Feel the pleasure
Kill the pain
Drop a pearl
See the dragon fly
Crack the diamond
Do you still feel high ?

CHORUS



THE VOICE OF REASON
Nothing ventured nothing gained
Tired and washed out by the pain
Do we share this problem, will it slip away ?
Or do we fight another day ?
Was I looking for a friend ?
One I count on ïtill the end
Is there something that I didnït do ?
Does it all begin with you ?

CHORUS
So how did I, Oh I
Give you reason ?
But how did I, Oh I
Give you reason ?

After all the fallen tears
When we wake the taken dream
Who let the water slowly draw away ?
All the colours that we made

CHORUS

To give you reason, to change the riverïs flow
To give you reason, to point the bone
To give you reason, go set your spirit free
I donït know, I donït know why

Is there nothing I can say ?
Is there nothing I can do, girl ?
Didnït mean to break your life
Didnït mean to burn your world, no

CHORUS

You can keep the silver band
You can have the memories, girl
Now as 'Pilate' cleans the hands
Itïs no more to do with me, no

CHORUS

So how did I, Oh I
Give you reason ?
Let the voice of reason say:



LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS
We used to live in a better world
Where sky and water were free
We point the finger
We point the gun
Is that the way it should be ?

We rape the land
And we tear the skin
Burn the blood in the stone
To fuel the fire of a selfish mind
Do you want to live here alone ?

CHORUS
Lay down your arms - surrender
You know youïll never get out of here
Lay down your arms - remember
No force - youïd better lay down your gun

Such are the sins of humanity
Dark is the air that we breath
A war to hide in society
Donït close your eyes to deceive

Too many promises
Too many tears
Where does the future lie
If we burn away the years

We can make this a better world
Where sky and water are free
So give the hand without the gun
Thatïs the way it will be

CHORUS



CRIME OF THE HEART
Dreams that have melted now frozen like statues
Under the surface here lies the unknown
Love has a way of disguising itïs purpose
Seeing your pain my hand goes out to you

You should have known better than to trust him
How the pain shines through your eyes

Nothing hits harder than a crime of the heart
It breaks you up and it tears you apart
You just want to die, youïve been so abused
Now you know how it feels to be used
Nothing hurts harder than a crime of the heart
Iïm such a fool, I should have known from the start
I saw it coming and I feel Iïm to blame
But love donït give in

I watch your face as you stare into distance
Eyes filled with tears that look so far away
Deep in your heart can you feel a resistance ?
Love it just happens thereïs no-one to blame

You should have known better than to sacrifice
The stained-glass soul you hide

Nothing hits harder than a crime of the heart
Itïs the kind of feeling that pulls you apart
Thereïs nowhere to run, thereïs nothing to say
You never knew that you could feel this way
Nothing hurts harder than a crime of the heart
I could have told you he was wrong from the start
Iïm not guilty, but I feel Iïm too blame
My love wonït give in

Crime of the heart



A FAR CRY
In the dead of the night
On the wings of the wind
I hear the ocean bell
With a flash of the light
In the beat of the dark
The sound I know so well

I shall never forget you
Itïs been so long
I should never have left you
The call so strong

CHORUS
Itïs a far cry from a wild world
I want to get back to you
Such a long road, to the homeland
I must make my way to a far cry

From the chords of the earth
To the depths of the sea
I will return
As I look to the hill
Through the eyes of the storm
I touch the flame

I shall never forget you
Itïs been so long
I should never have left you
The call so strong

CHORUS

It ïs such a far cry



DONT CALL ME
You know Iïll never understand your reasons
I gave you all the love that I could give
Now Iïm sitting on a plane to take me far away
Iïve got to find a new place to live

It used to feel so good when you stood beside me
How can you forget the words you said ?
Things like: Iïm gonna stay with you forever
Will always echo in my head

Donït call me, donït call me, no more

If this plane ride lasts forever
I couldnït quite get over you
We spent too much time together
I canït believe weïre through

Donït call me, donït call me, no more



HEAVEN ON EARTH
I am caught in the heat
Hold your head as you sleep
How can I close my eyes watching you
Such a fever inside from emotions within
Burning the night with the truth

Sweetest poison - positive attraction
Raging in my mind

CHORUS
Oh if you walk away
Youïll take the life from me
Oh if you walk away
Youïll take the air I breathe
Life would be lonely
More than youïll never know
ïCos youïve put all heaven on earth

I hear the sound of your voice
On the breath of the wind
I feel the touch of an angel
Next to my skin
It cuts so deep inside
It draws out the life
Harder with every time

Sweetest poison - positive attraction
Raging in my mind
