We Built a House

We built a house for music we love,
we built a house for dance
We built a house where hearts beat out loud,
and everyone has a chance

We built a house for music

We built a house for music we love,
we dance without fear
We dance to the beat in our hearts,
we laugh at every tear

We built a house for music

We built a house for music we love,
we built a house for dance
We built a house where hearts beat out loud,
and everything’s allowed

We built a house where nobody sleeps

We built a house for you, we built a house for me
We built a house for everyone, everyone

Parachute

I’m on the verge, preparing for the unknown
I’ve got my feet half way over the edge,
flirting with the ledge

I’m no good making any big moves,
even a small one can have big consequences
Finger on the trigger

I want you to be my parachute
I want you to be my parachute
‘Cos I’m not ready for the freefall
I need you to be my parachute

The wait is over my feet are getting colder
I seem relaxed but my heart keeps skipping a beat
I’m not as strong as you might believe

I need to feel we’re doing this together
For ever and ever we keep on falling in,
falling in love

I want you to be my parachute
I want you to be my parachute
‘Cos I, I’m ready for the big love
Let me down gently and we fly as far as we may

This One’s Gonna Hurt

Full moon after blinding light
Storm hiding in plain sight
Distorted noise on the radio,
everywhere I go

A weird taste in my mouth,
a scent in the breeze
The wind brings cold echoes
On the streets, a thousand broken promises

I’m reading the signs and I know
This one’s gonna hurt
I hear the alarm and I know
This one’s gonna hurt

This one, oh-oh, this one’s gonna hurt

Red lights distracting me
Shadowdance on the corner
The beat goes on, It’s taunting me
I can’t let go, oh no

I’d run away and save the truth for another day
but the wind brings your echoes
The guilty moon keeps rising up
It won’t stop, I can’t stop

Teenage Dreamstage

You had blonde dreadlocks
and a scent of vanilla
Che Guevara in your jacket,
sweet little guerilla

You wore a third world cause
with a first class smile,
and when you felt lost
it was me that cried

In our teenage dreamstage
no applause, no heaven
I guess there was a scene change,
now we’re alone together

We lived Billboard heights,
had Broadway nights
I thought those eager days
would last all our lives

Hot breath on my window,
I don’t dare wipe it away
Like a fading moment,
a kiss becomes a stain

And the strain starts to show
in everything I do
Somehow I know the same pain
is burning in you

Manilla Vanilla

A barren tree by an old abandoned village
still blooms with little, rusty hearts
Every heart locks a story to the ground
Wishful lovers search for shooting stars

We travel here to contemplate your fate,
a tale that’s been told so many times.
We add another chapter of our own
written in honor, in honor of your love

Manilla Vanilla,
You lost your life
You built your love as if sand were stone

Manilla Vanilla,
You gave yourself
In honor of you I make my vow

You took every chance and every moment
and you treasured your secret deep within
No matter what you’d have done, what you’d have said,
your roles were written long before you met

And there are locks that never find a key
You can’t escape your destiny
The air still shudders with your sweet scent,
by manilla rope, you met your end

Manilla Vanilla
Because of love, in a bone white tree
your name still grows

Don’t Break My Corazon

I don’t know, I don’t know
Don’t fake, don’t break,
break my corazon

All the boys and their toys
dressed and deployed,
filled with excitement
Your dance, a license to kill

You were under fire
Radiant violence
Argentina was breaking,
my body was shaking
as you took me by my hand.

I don’t know, I don’t know,
if we’ll make it past the dawn
Don’t fake, don’t break,
break my corazon.

I don’t know, I don’t know
My heart beats like a drum
Don’t fake, don’t break,
break my corazon

I felt your desire
with every heartbeat

Mi vida was quaking,
your laughter slayed me
as your love walked through the door

We stole a piece of splendor,
but the world tore us apart

Dame de voyage

You lay on the bed, paradise in your eyes
Inside your head you’re out of reach, in summerdays of never-grow-old

Just a rock n’ roll ragdoll, feline eyes full of tease
Or dame de voyage, praising me down on your knees.

If only you could hide away
If only you could be yourself tonight
If only we could hide away
What if you could leave this all behind?

Young beautiful girl, you are unordinary
You are something wonderful, so why you try to hide it so hard
Take a chance on me, I’ll bring you back before the dawn
And if we allow, we could be something else right now

Let go, let go,
let your heart mend,
dame de voyage

Big in Japan

Sashimi of Broken Hearts
This is where the saga starts
Big in Japan, that’s what I am
Sashimi of Broken Hearts, hey!

Thank You for Your Heart

From Indian villages
to the wounded in Iraq
Thank you

From the streets of Singapore
to the rich ones in Japan
Thank you, Thank you

Forced good will donated in Brazil

Ice cubes, dancing like diamonds
shattering to ground and melting to tears
Ice cubes, dancing like diamonds
You try to get a hold of one before it disappears

A wealthy man, a VIP
untouchable, unbreakable

In the world, where money talks
life is cheap and the Grim Reaper walks
An empty bed, a dream of heart

DeLorean

Like a laser beam through my head,
the first time I laid my eyes on you
I was still a boy with boy’s desires,
you took my heart and made it boom boom boom

Oh, DeLorean, take us back in time

Your golden hair and hazel eyes,
angel smile that made my heart sing ooh la la

As summersun played on your hips
the world was at my fingertips
That night you gave yourself to me

DeLorean, DeLorean,
take us back in time
when there was a you and I

DeLorean, DeLorean,
forgive me I was blind
I’ve missed you all this time

Freedom Fighter

Though your heart is taking a beating, don’t give in without a fight
Freedom Fighter, make yourself alive

Life is hell at the old republic, bridges burn in your mind
Though your heart is taking a beating, don’t give in without a fight
You don’t know where you’ll rest your head, dreaming of home tonight
Home is where your heart lays, always

Freedom Fighter
cut the razor wire
Set the walls on fire
make yourself alive

Lights are out in the moving cars, lights are out on the streets
You are a light that is burning bright, full of life, full of needs
You don’t know where you’ll rest your head, dreaming of home tonight
Home is where your heart lays, always
