Players

You and me
standing at two different edges of the rocking chair,
balancing not to fall.
Your weight and my weight are equal,
each step
can make us lose.
So, we stand,
day and night, unable to make the step,
to get closer
or to get apart, tied by a strange law
of balance
between things.
You and me,
different as black and white, though, sometimes, being a light shadow,
unspoken, unread,
look each other in the eyes.
And see nothing, for it’s need that unites us
and we’re afraid to breathe,
because we are too high.
If we fall,
We’ll lie breathless, stretched on the ground,
hear people say
about how lovely our life must have been
and how tragic it
had to end.
But, in truth,
we just wanted to break down the laws
that kept holding us there,
not being close even a bit.
You and me,
standing at two different edges of the rocking chair,
are saved,
when, step by step, in synchronicity,
we reach each other,
ready to see
everything unseen.

    I'm standing in the station,
    I am waiting for a train,
    To take me to the border,
    And my loved one far away,
    I watched a bunch of soldiers heading for the war,
    I could hardly even bear to see them go;

    Rolling through the countryside,
    Tears are in my eyes,
    We're coming to the borderline,
    I'm ready with my lies,
    And in the early morning rain, I see her there,
    And I know I'll have to say goodbye again;

    And it's breaking my heart, I know what I must do,
    I hear my country call me, but I want to be with you,
    I'm taking my side, one of us will lose,
    Don't let go, I want to know,
    That you will wait for me until the day,
    There's no borderline, no borderline;

    Walking past the border guards,
    Reaching for her hand,
    Showing no emotion,
    I want to break into a run,
    But these are only boys, and I will never know,
    How men can see the wisdom in a war...

    And it's breaking my heart, I know what I must do,
    I hear my country call me, but I want to be with you,
    I'm taking my side, one of us will lose,
    Don't let go, I want to know,
    That you will wait for me until the day,
    There's no borderline, no borderline,
    No borderline, no borderline...

    We took a boat over Lake Geneva.
    It was raining all night long,
    We were lucky and we saw no enemy,
    And came from Switzerland poor refugees,
    Far from the guns of war,
    We said goodbye to it all;

    They brought us in to a nurse's station,
    Half a mile behind the lines,
    Oh Lord, how my heart was breaking,
    To see the children, and the walking wounded,
    Hoping for a ticket home,
    And say goodbye to it all;

    I woke up on a cold blue morning,
    To see her there, standing right beside me,
    Long years since I left her at the borderline,
    And how she found me I'd never know,
    But we decided there and then,
    To say goodbye to it all;

    Say goodbye to it all,
    Say goodbye to it all....

    Took a train from Paris to the ocean,
    Found a small hotel by the coast,
    As we walked along the beaches of Normandy,
    We came to Juno, Omaha and Gold,
    And whispered a prayer for the boys,
    Who said goodbye to it all;

    Now we've got our own place by the water,
    And I have a job in the old hotel,
    She is ready and she's hoping for a daughter,
    Well I don't mind, we've made our choice.
    We've got all the time in the world,
    We said goodbye to it all,
    We said goodbye co it all.

    Say goodbye to it all,
    Say goodbye to it all,
    Say goodbye to it all,
    Say goodbye to it all.

    There's a Spanish train that runs between
    Quadalquivir and old Seville,
    And at dead of night the whistle blows,
    and people hear she's running still...

    And then they hush their children back to sleep,
    Lock the doors, upstairs they creep,
    For it is said that the souls of the dead
    Fill that train ten thousand deep!!

    Well a railwayman lay dying with his people by his side,
    His family were crying, knelt in prayer before he died,
    But above his bed just a-waiting for the dead,
    Was the Devil with a twinkle in his eye,
    "Well God's not around and look what I've found,
    this one's mine!!"

    Just then the Lord himself appeared in a blinding flash of light,
    And shouted at the devil, "Get thee hence to endless night!!"
    But the Devil just grinned and said "I may have sinned,
    But there's no need to push me around,
    I got him first so you can do your worst,
    He's going underground!!"

    "But I think I'll give you one more chance"
    said the Devil with a smile,
    "So throw away that stupid lance,
    It's really not your style",
    Joker is the name, Poker is the game,
    we'll play right here on this bed,
    And then we'll bet for the biggest stakes yet,
    the souls of the dead!!"

    And I said "Look out, Lord, he's going to win,
    The sun is down and the night is riding in,
    That train is dead on time, many souls are on the line,
    Oh Lord, he's going to win!.."

    Well the railwayman he cut the cards
    and he dealt them each a hand of five
    And for the Lord he was praying hard
    or that train he'd have to drive...
    Well the Devil he had three aces and a king,
    and the Lord, he was running for a straight,
    he had the queen and the knave and the nine and ten of spades,
    All he needed was the eight...

    And then the Lord he called for one more card,
    but he drew the diamond eight,
    And the Devil said to the son of God,
    "I believe you've got it straight,
    So deal me one for the time has come
    to see who'll be the king of this place,
    But as he spoke, from beneath his cloak,
    he slipped another ace...

    Ten thousand souls was the opening bid,
    and it soon went up to fifty-nine,
    but the Lord didn't see what the Devil did,
    and he said "that suits me fine",
    "I'll raise you high to hundred and five,
    and forever put an end to your sins",
    But the Devil let out a mighty shout, "My hand wins!!"

    And I said "Lord, oh Lord, you let him win,
    The sun is down and the night is riding in,
    That train is dead on time, many souls are on the line,
    Oh Lord, don't let him win..."

    Well that Spanish train still runs between,
    Quadalquivir and old Seville,
    And at dead of night the whistle blows,
    And people fear she's running still...
    And far away in some recess
    The Lord and the Devil are now playing chess,
    The Devil still cheats and wins more souls,
    And as for the Lord, well, he's just doing his best...

    And I said "Lord, oh Lord, you've got to win,
    The Sun is down and the night is riding in,
    That train is still on time, Oh my soul is on the line,
    Oh Lord, you've got to win..."

    Ship to shore, do you read
    me anymore.
    This line is bad, and fading,
    Ship to shore, answer my call,
    Send me a signal, a beacon to
    bring me home;

    I have been to see the world,
    tasted life at every turn,
    And all the time,
    Your face came back to haunt me;

    Day by day the feeling grew,
    I know I'm still in love with you,
    The farther that I go,
    the more I know it, I wanna show it,

    Ship to shore, do you read
    me anymore.
    This line is bad, and fading,
    Ship to shore, answer my call,
    Send me a signal, a beacon to
    bring me home;

    Moving fast, all systems go,
    You and I had time to grow,
    Before there was a breakdown in
    transmission;

    How I wish that we could turn
    The clock back to the days when
    We were lovers in the true sense
    of the meaning, you must believe me,

    Ship to shore, do you read
    me anymore.
    This line is bad, I'm drowning,
    Ship to shore, answer my call,
    Send me a signal, a beacon to
    bring me home;

    Ship to shore, ship to shore,
    ship to shore...

    I cannot believe my eyes,
    But I think I see a light;
    You are everything I've always
    Wanted in my life

    I've been missing you...

    I've got the roses, I've got the wine,
    With a little luck she will be here on time,
    This is the place we used to go,
    With romantic music and the lights down low,
    And as you stand there amazed at the door,
    And you're wondering what all this is for,
    It's just a simple thing, from me to you,
    The lady that I adore, 'cos there's something
    That you should know, it's that

    I've been missing you, more than words can say,
    And that I've been thinking about it every day,
    And the time we had just dancing nice and slow,
    And I said now I've found you,
    I'm never letting go;

    There is no reason to the things that we do,
    You can break a heart with just a word or two,
    And take a lifetime to apologise,
    When the one you love's in front of your eyes,
    And I will fall to my knees like a fool,
    If it's the only way of getting through,
    You see if I think you are beautiful,
    Someone else is going to feel it too,
    So there's only one thing to do, tell you that

    I've been missing you, more than words can say,
    And that I've been thinking about it every day,
    Well tonight's our night for dancing nice and slow,
    Because now I've found you, I'm never letting go,
    No, now I've found you, I'm never letting go;

    I've been missing you...
    I've been missing you...
    I've been missing you...
    I've been missing you, darling...

    Is it real, what I feel, is it love,
    Is it love that's making me weak, in the night,
    And when she's next to me,
    I just stumble on my words,
    And all the things I want to say,
    Come out wrong,
    I am lost in a dream,
    But I know this is more than it seems,
    I need a little help;

    Someone put on a love song,
    To bring her closer to me,
    All I want is this diamond in the dark,
    To begin what must be;

    When she turns at her name, when she smiles,
    When she smiles, I feel it again, in my heart,
    Across the crowded room,
    She is just a dance away,
    And I can feel her like a fire that's burning strong,
    She keeps looking at me,
    And I know this was all meant to be,
    And then it had to come;

    Someone put on a love song,
    To bring her closer to me,
    All I want is this diamond in the dark,
    To begin what must be,
    All I want is this diamond in the dark,
    To begin what must be,
    All I want is this diamond in the dark, to begin what must be,
    All I want is this diamond in the dark, to begin what must be.

    Oh how, at the journey's end,
    I lie in the heat of the night,
    Feeling the heartache, wondering why,
    I want a friend,
    I want a friend to lay down beside me,
    I want a friend,
    I want her now,
    Someone who knows what I mean
    When I say, that I need

    Tender hands to hold me,
    I need tender hands tonight,
    Will you lay them on my shoulders,
    Will you lay them on my eyes,
    And I need tender hands to take me,
    All the way to paradise,
    And then, when it's over,
    I need tender hands
    To hold me through the night;

    Touch me with your velvet mouth,
    I will give all the love that I have,
    Under the moonlight, reaching your heart,
    Where are you now, where are you now,
    Come out of the shadows,
    Where are you now, I want you now,
    You know that I cannot always be strong,
    And I need

    Tender hands to hold me,
    I need tender hands tonight,
    Will you lay them on my shoulders,
    Will you lay them on my eyes,
    And I need tender hands to take me,
    All the way to paradise,
    And then, when it's over,
    I need tender hands
    To hold me through the night;

    I am only a voice in a city of noise,
    Can you hear me this time,
    I see the storm grow,
    There's a light in the desert tonight;

    And I need tender hands,
    Give me tender hands,
    Will you lay them on my shoulders,
    Oh give me
    Tender hands to take me
    All the way to paradise,
    And then, when it's over,
    I have tender hands
    To hold you through the night, darling,
    My tender hands will hold you
    Through the night;

    I want your tender hands,
    You have tender hands,
    I want those tender hands,
    Tender hands...

    A spaceman came traveling on his ship from afar
    'Twas light years of time since his mission did start
    And over a village he halted his craft
    And it hung in the sky like a star
    Just like a star -----

    He followed a light and came down to a shed
    Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed
    A bright light of silver shone round his head
    And he had the face of an angel
    And they were afraid -----

    Then the stranger spoke
    He said" Do not fear
    I come from a planet a long way from here
    And I bring a message for mankind to hear"
    And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air ----

    And it went la la ------
    Peace and goodwill to all men
    And love for the child ------

    This lovely music went trembling through the ground
    And many were wakened on hearing that sound
    And travelers on the road
    The village they found by the light of that ship in the sky
    Which shone all around -----

    And just before dawn
    At the paling of the sky
    The stranger returned and said " Now I must fly
    When two thousand years of your time has gone by
    This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry --"
    And it went la la ------
    This song will begin once again
    To a baby's cry ----
    And it goes la la ----
    Peace and goodwill to all men
    And love for the child ----

    Oh the whole world is waiting
    Waiting to hear the song again
    There are thousands standing on the edge of the world
    And a star is moving somewhere
    The time is nearly here
    This song will begin once again
    To a baby's cry ----

    Restless heart, it has been a long time
    Out here on the journey, for a glimpse of paradise
    It's getting hard to find a place to go
    Where peaceful waters flow.

    I took a walk past the old saxon well
    Down by the cathedral, I heard the chapel bell
    And joined the people singing for a way to go
    Where peaceful waters flow.

    And if you don't know by now, you never will
    Only love can find the door
    If you could see it now, it's in your hands
    Only love can reach the shore, to heaven

    Always, she is standing by my side
    She's my inspiration, and she's my battle-cry
    And in her arms is the only place I know
    Where peaceful waters flow.

    And if you don't know by now, you never will
    Only love can find the door
    If you could see it now, it's in your hands
    Only love can reach the shore, to heaven

    Oh my heart is spinning like a wheel,
    Only she can see the way that I fell,
    Eyes are holding right across the room,
    High explosion coming out of the blue;

    Well here we go again,
    Living in a world that others cannot share,
    Yea here we go again,
    We are moving from a spark to a flame;

    I am high on emotion, high again,
    High on emotion, your love will find the way;

    Oh my heart is burning like a fire,
    Closer now and she is breathing desire,
    Take my hand and give it all your light,
    Take command I am your rhythm tonight;

    Well here we go again,
    Living in a world that others cannot share,
    Yea here we go again,
    We are moving from a spark to a flame;

    I am high on emotion, high again,
    High on emotion, your love will find the way;

    I am high on emotion, high again,
    High on emotion, your love will find the way;
    High on emotion, high again,
    High on emotion, your love will find the way;
