Track Name: That's No Way to Pay a Bodyguard
THAT’S NO WAY TO PAY A BODYGUARD
Well there’s whiskey on the shelf
What are you running from?
Do you know if you’re coming or going?
Well I have got an idea
You’ll need someone to look after you
Just like I know that I can do

And you know that’s not what I want from you
And you know it’s over when the day is through

Well that’s no way to pay a bodyguard
I don’t want to be tied down
And I am so afraid of you
Because I know just what you can do

And you know that’s not what I want from you
And you know it’s over when the day is through

Track Name: Flashback
FLASHBACK
Hey Mandy won’t you come out and touch me
Hey babe, won’t you ride on high
It’s getting harder to see the sunshine
You make love right through my eyes

It’s not the same without you
We can’t make the same heat without you
It’s just a fading memory
You stay away from our kind

Waking up in a wasted body
The slightest fear had ‘sturbed my fears
I feel low and I need a good friend
To help me laden through these years

It’s not the same without you
We can’t make the same heat without you
It’s just a fading memory
You stay away from our kind

Hey Mandy won’t you come out and touch me
Hey babe, won’t you ride on high
It’s getting harder to see the sunshine
You make love right through my eyes

It’s not the same without you
We can’t make the same heat without you
It’s just a fading memory
You stay away from our kind

Track Name: Indian Summer
INDIAN SUMMER
Burning incense on the breeze
Floats out of your room
Falling down the corridors of yesterday
Feel it in the air
Maybe it’ll be coming your way

Carry me away
Indian summer
Carry me away
It’s been so long
Carry me away

Standing on the doorstep
Dancing round the room
Rainbow dancing showers on the lawn
Never thought at all
That it would ever fade away

Carry me away
Indian summer
Carry me away
It’s been so long
Carry me away

Passing places full of you
No longer seems to be
Too far behind, too far away to see
If I close my eyes
I can sometimes drift away

Carry me away
Indian summer
Carry me away
It’s been so long
Carry me away

Track Name: 1984
1984
All across the world a brand new age is dawning
The sunlight through the trees brings the prophet’s warning
Will our lives soon come to their end?

This is 1984
This is 1984

Such a peaceful morning, such a peaceful night…
I hear the words the prophet spoke
I hope he’s not right or our lives will soon come to their end

This is 1984
This is 1984

Cold, cold windy journey
I’m going far away
I’m going to join the others
Back another day
Maybe yet our children will grow old

This is 1984
This is 1984
