Paul Young Standing On The Edge

He has had the secret sold to him

The door was open and you’re shaking in anticipation

Let your down just when you let him in

Now you only have to dance away the night again

Lately, lonely

He was old but never felt so young

Like a lion to the slaughtered lamb

He watched you crumble

Walked away before the dance begun

Still he says that he has loved you

Like he loved no other

The best kept secret hidden years

Is still wrapped up with pride and fear

Standing on the edge of love, moving round in circles

Turning

Standing on the edge of love, moving round

Back to safety, back to well worn womb

Back to someone who is nothing more than passing time

Back to dreaming all that love lost grooms

Does it make you want to scream in anger, cry with rage

The best kept secret hidden years

Is still wrapped up with pride and fear

Standing on the edge of love, moving round in circles

Turning

Standing on the edge of love, moving round, moving round

Standing on the edge of love, moving round in circles

Turning

Standing on the edge of love, moving round, moving round

Paul Young Softly Whispering I Love You

Softly whispering I love you

Echoes of your voice are calling still from my dreams

Softening the chill of the breeze

Through my window, I can see the moon glow

Painting silver shadows on a rose colored land

A world that we walk hand in hand

In a day of gold covered by the glow of new love

I can feel your warm face, ever close to my lips

And the scent of you invades a cool evenin’ air

I can close my eyes and you’re there

You’re in my arms still, oh I know your soft kiss

Turning into music every beat of my heart

When I hold you close to my heart

And I hear your voice whispering I love you

I can feel your warm face, ever close to my lips

And the scent of you invades a cool evening air

I feel you there in my arms still

And I know your soft kiss

Is turning into music every beat of my heart

And I hear your voice whispering I love you

Ooh I know I need you

I feel you there in my arms still

I keep to forget

I love you

Paul Young It Was A Very Good Year

When I was seventeen, it was a very good year

It was a very good year for small town girls

And soft summer nights, we’d hide from the lights

On the village green, when I was seventeen

When I was twenty-one, it was a very good year

It was a very good year for city girls

Who lived up the stair, with all that crazy hair

And it came undone, when I was twenty-one

When I was thirty-five, it was a very good year

It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls

Of independent means, we’d ride in limousines

Their chauffeur would drive, when I was thirty-five

But when the days are short in the autumn of the year

I will think my life as vintage wine

From fine old kegs, from the brim to the dregs

Pouring sweet and clear, it was a very good year

Paul Young Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart

Get up in the morning and I’m filling with desire

Oh no I can’t stop the fire

Love is a real live wire

It’s a burning sensation

Love with all imagination

Love is like an itching in my heart

Baby, I can’t scratch it

Keeps me sighing

Keeps me yearning

I can’t help it man

I can’t help it man

I’ve been bitten by the love bug

Need some information

To help me out of the situation

Now I’m ill you take a pill

And when your thirsty drink a fill

What you gonna do oh yeah

When love get’s a hold a hold on you

‘Cause love is like an itching in my heart

Baby, I can’t scratch it

Love is a nagging irritation

Causing my heart complication

Love is growing infection

I don’t know in what direction

It’s got me rockin and reelin

And I can’t shake the feeling

Love is like an itching in my heart

Tearing all apart just an itching in my heart

Baby I can’t scratch it

Keeps me sighing

Keeps me yearning

Keeps me burning

Keeps me tossing

Keeps me turning

Kiss me yearning

I’ve been bitten by the love bug

Yeah need some information

To help me out of the situation

Love is like an irritation

Causing my heart complication

I’ve been bitten by the love bug

And I need some information

Love is like an itching in my heart

Baby, I can’t scratch it

Help me baby, somebody help me now

Paul Young In The Long Run

I see the finish before me; I feel the hurt of the lonely;

If you believe in me, know that your will is keeping me strong,

though as my heart is beating faster the pain won’t ever last and I’ll feel myself

reaching the end when I hold you again; carry me.

In the long run, fate will turn the key to tomorrow.

Oh, the memory holds me, of the love that you sold me.

Sold for a heart that is battered; but true!

I gave it to you; and our lips were so close but they never quite touched as you listening to me tell you

“I will return in the long run – fate turns the key to tomorrow”.

(We took that moment alone on the harbour, I held your hand.

We explained to each other the ways of never missing each other and keeping it strong in the long run)

fate turns the key to tomorrow…

Paul Young Heart Full Of Rain

A heart full of rain

And memories

I’m feeling the strain

And missing you so desperately

I need the shelter of your arms tonight

Oh baby, I need you by my side

I don’t know why

Things go the way they do

They just keep on taking me down

I can’t deny I’m so into you

And lost when you’re not around

If I could hold you

I could let go of the pain

But tonight I’ve got a heart full of rain

Unkind words blindly spoken

Faith was broken

And you walked away

From this world out love created

Hope has faded

Return your flame

To this heart full of rain

A heart full of rain

And memories

Love’s not in vain

Even if you should say

You no longer need me

I’ll keep believing

Until all that remains

Is your memories

And a heart full of rain

Your memory

And a heart full of rain

Paul Young Soldiers’ Things

Davenports and kettle drums

And swallow tail coats

Table cloths and patent leather shoes

Bathing suits and bowling balls

And clarinets and rings

And all this radio really needs is a fuse

A tinker, a tailor

A soldier’s things

His rifle, his boots, full of rocks

And this one is for bravery

And this one for me

And everything a dollar in this box

Cuff links and hub caps

Trophies and paperbacks

It’s good transportation

But the brakes aren’t so hot

Neck tie and boxing gloves

This jackknife is rusted

You can pound that dent out

On the hood

A tinker, a tailor

A soldier’s things

His rifle, his boots, full of rocks

And this one is for bravery

And this one for me

And everything a dollar in this box

A tinker, a tailor

A soldier’s things

His rifle, his boots, full of rocks

And this one is for bravery

And this one for me

And everything a dollar in this box

Paul Young That’s How Heartaches Are Made

They told me that I was such a fool of you

They said that you are the kind who never be true

Pretty soon the day will come

When I’ll be the silent one

They’ll seems that I’m not afraid

That’s how heartaches are made

That’s how heartaches are made

I went to heaven my heart opened the door

I gave you so much love no one could say more

You pretended to be mine

How could you be so unkind

With all the other guys you played

That’s how heartaches are made

That’s how heartaches are made

That’s how heartaches are made

That’s how heartaches are made

I know you’re not sincere and you’ll never be

But still I want your kiss as soon as could be

I can never let you go

Can’t you hear me no I know

Every rule of love you disobeyed

Paul Young Some People

Some people, they know how to play the game of love

Some people, know just who to pray to up above

I know where I’m going, I’m taking it straight to the top

I know where I’m going, I don’t see a reason to stop

You took my hand, put me back where I started

Showed me the way, showed me the way

Oh, take my hand

You took my hand, put me back where I started

Givin’ me direction

Some people seem to get the best of life really easy

Some people seem to be put on this earth to please me

I know that I’m lucky, what you give me I’ll send right back

I know I’m so lucky, this won’t be a tough one to crack

You took my hand, put me back where I started

Showed me the way, showed me the way

Oh, you took my hand

You took my hand, put me back where I started (This is where I started)

Givin’ me direction

Some of us were living in perplexion

While others seemed to go sailing through

Some of us were getting no direction

Some of us could only think of you

Oh

Play

Oh

Some people can give every piece of their heart to another

Some people are just as happy when they’re left on their own

I know what I have now, the grass isn’t greener over there

I know what I have now, and it’s something that I want to share

You took my hand, put me back where I started

Oh yeah, help me

Showed me the way, showed me the way

Oh, you took my hand

You took my hand, put me back where I started

Givin’ me direction

Showed me the way, showed me the way

There’s a little piece of paper

You took my hand, put me back where I started

(Where I started)

Givin’ me direction

Paul Young Heaven Can Wait

What did I see in you

Have changed my mind

Those first impressions saying love is blind

Why find a reason when this

Feeling goes on and on in everyone

Swept into the tide

Heaven can wait forever

Now till the end of time

Heaven can wait forever

Now I know you’re mine

Two lonely people that are locked in time

Wait for the moment

The perfect crime

Reaching out to steal your heart

In the dark

We fade away and dream to stay

In this world we tried

Heaven can wait forever

Now till the end of time

Heaven can wait forever

Now I know you’re mine
