1. Caught Somewhere in Time

If you had the time to lose
An open mind and time to choose
Would you care to take a look
Or can you read me like a book

Time is always on my side
Time is always on my side

Can I tempt you come with me
Be Devil may care fulfill your dream
If I said Iíd take you there
Would you go would you be scared

Time is always on my side
Time is always on my side

Donít be afraid youíre safe with me Safe as any soul can be.... Honestly
Just let yourself go

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time....oh oh

Like a wolf in sheepís clothing
You try to hide your deepest sins
Of all the things that youíve done wrong
And I know where you belong

Time is always on my side
Time is always on my side

Make you an offer you canít refuse
Youíve only got your soul to lose
Eternally.... Just let yourself go

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time....oh oh

Caught somewhere in time
Caught somewhere in time
Caught now in two minds.... oh oh




2. Wasted Years

From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
Iím travellin on, far and wide
But now it seems, Iím just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isnít me but someone else


I close my eyes, and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ainít it funny how it is, you never miss it `til itís gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be `til my dying day

So understand, donít waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize youíre living in the golden years


Too much time on my hands
I got you on my mind
Canít ease this pain, so easily
When you canít find the words to say itís hard to make it through another
day
And it just makes me wanna cry and throw my hands up to the sky

So understand, donít waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize youíre living in the golden years




3. Sea of Madness

Out in the street somebodyís crying
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebodyís crying
Reached the point of no return
Oh- my eyes they see but I canít believe
Oh- my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness

Somewhere I hear a voice thatís calling
Out in the dark there burns a dream
Youíve got to hope when you are falling
To find the world that you have seen
Oh - my eyes they see but I canít believe
Oh- my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness

Itís madness
The sun donít shine
On the sea of madness
There ainít no wind to fill your sails
Madness when all you see can only bring you sadness
On towards the sea we go

Out in the night somebodyís crying
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebodyís crying
Reached the point of no return
Oh- my eyes they see but I canít believe
Oh- my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness




4. Heaven Can Wait

Canít understand what is happening to me
This isnít real this is only a dream
But I never have felt, no I never have felt this way before
Iím looking down on my body below
I lie asleep in the midst of a dream
Is it now could it be the Angel of Death has come for me
I canít believe that really my time has come
I donít feel ready thereís so much left undone
And itís my soul and Iím not gonna let it get away

Heaven can wait, Heaven can wait
Heaven can wait, Heaven can wait til another day

I have a lust for the Earth below
And Hell itself is my only foe
`Cause Iíve no fear of dying
Iíll go when Iím good and ready
I snatch a glimpse of the lights eternal rays
I see a tunnel I stand amazed
At all of the people standing there in front of me
Into the paths of lightness Iíll be led
Is this the place where the living join the dead
I wish I knew this was only just a nightmare

Heaven can wait, Heaven can wait
Heaven can wait, Heaven can wait til another day

Take my hand Iíll lead you to the promised land
Take my hand Iíll give you immortality
Eternal youth Iíll take you to the other side
To see the truth the path for you is decided

My body tingles I feel so strange
I feel so tired I feel so drained
And Iím wondering if Iíll ever be the same again
Is this in limbo or Heaven or hell
Maybe Iím going down there as well
I canít accept my soul will drift forever
I feel myself floating back down to Earth
So could this be the hour of my rebirth
Or have I died or will I wake from dreaming?

Heaven can wait, Heaven can wait
Heaven can wait, Heaven can wait til another day




5. The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner

The tough of the track
With the wind
And the rain thatís beating down on
Your back
Your heartís beating loud
And goes on getting louder
And goes on even more `til the
Sound is ringing in your head
With every step you tread
And every breath you take
Determination makes you run never stop
Got to win got to run `til you drop
Keep the pace hold the race
Your mind is getting clearer
Youíre over half way there
But the miles they never seem to end
As if youíre in a dream
Not getting anywhere
It seems so futile

Run on and on
Run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner

Iíve got to keep running the course
Iíve got to keep running and win at all costs
Iíve got to keep going, be strong
Must be so determined and push myself on

Run over stiles across fields
Turn to look at whoís on your heels
Way ahead of the field
The line is getting nearer but do
You want the glory that goes
You reach the final stretch
Ideals are just a trace
You feel like throwing the race
Itís all so futile

Run on and on
Run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner




6. Stranger in a Strange Land

Was many years ago that I left home and came this way
I was a young man , full of hopes and dreams
But now it seems to me that all is lost and nothing gained
Sometimes things ainít what they seem
No brave new world, no brave new world
No brave new world, no brave new world

Night and day I scan the horizon, sea and sky
My spirit wanders endlessly
Until the day will dawn and friends from home discover why
Here me calling, rescue me
Set me free, set me free
Lost in this place, and leave no trace

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

One hundred years have gone and men again they came that way
To find the answer to the mystery
They found his body lying where it fell on that day
Preserved in time for all to see
No brave new world, no brave new world
Lost in this place, to leave no trace

What became of the men that started
All are gone and their souls departed
Left me here in this place
So all alone

Stranger in a stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home




7. Deja-Vu

When you see familiar faces
But you donít remember where theyíre from
Could you be wrong?
When youíve been particular places
That you know youíve never seen before
Can you be sure?

Cause you know this has happened before
And you know that this moment in time is for real
And you know when you feel deja-vu

Feel like Iíve been here before
Feel like Iíve been here before
Feel like Iíve been here before
Feel like Iíve been here before

Ever had a conversation
That you realize youíve had before
Isnít it strange

Have you ever talked to someone
And you feel you know whatís coming next
It feels pre-arranged

Cause you know that youíve heard it before
And you feel that this moment in time is surreal
Cause you know when you feel deja-vu

Feel like Iíve been here before
Feel like Iíve been here before
Feel like Iíve been here before
Feel like Iíve been here before




8. Alexander the Great

ďMy son ask for thyself another
Kingdom , for that which I leave
is too small for thee?

Near to the east
In a part of ancient Greece
In an ancient land called Macedonia
Was born a son
To Philip of Macedon
The legend his name was Alexander

At the age of nineteen
He became the Macedon king
And he swore to free all of Asia minor
By the Aegian Sea
In 334 B.C.
He utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a legend ` mongst mortal men

King Darius the third
Defeated fled Persia
The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well
And he founded the city called Alexandria

By the Tigris river
He met King Darius again
And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa , treasures he found
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a God amongst mortal men


A Phrygian king had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the ďGordian Knot?
And legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia

Helonism he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity

Marching on , marching on

The battle weary marching side by side
Alexanderís army line by line
They wouldnít follow him to India
Tired of combat , pain and the glory

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon
