The Chevin Love Is Just A Game

A foolish king

Wears the crown of the king before him

Under careless skies

We ran away to the streets of Berlin

We both played our part

As the madness eroded my heart

And we swing swing swing

To the songs that the cover band sing sing sing

Only hurt

Will remain

When love is just a game

I walk out of the fire and into the flame

For you

Love is just a game

My oh my

In the glare of a million eyes

In the road you cry

As the crickets call into the night

Such a stupid girl hanging on to the edge of the world

Calling love love love

Can’t you see what you’ve done to us

Only hurt

Will remain

When love is just a game

Empty words

Said in vain

When love is just a game

I walk out of the fire and into the flame

For you

Only you stay the same

An ode to joy

A road to love

A note to keep your head above

The rising tide’s not yet a flood on this shore

The bird, the bee, the curtain call

The greatest show to end them all

A universal rise and fall

Oh oh oh

The road is long when you walk alone

Oh oh oh

An ode to joy

A road to love

A note to keep your head above

The rising tide’s not yet a flood

Come on baby

Come on baby

Let’s cry a little

Come on baby

Come on baby

Come on baby

Come on baby

Let’s cry a little

Come on baby

Come on baby

Come on baby

Let’s cry a little

Come on baby

Come on baby

The Chevin Drive

In the dead of night

We light the candles

In the loneliest shrine

Cue the chorus line

Hide my heartbreak

In the rhythm and rhyme

We just drive

Until our cars collide

We just drive drive drive

Back when the night was ours

Before it left with stars

When we were animals

Two hearts racing

Alone and waiting

Two hearts breaking apart

This ending has no start

We just drive

Until our cars collide

We just drive

In search for signs of life

We just drive drive drive

Oh Father I have sinned

Please forgive me

But it’s far too late to right the wrongs I’ve done

Hold my head under the holy water

Heal this troubled son

Heal this troubled son

We just drive

Until our cars collide

We just drive, drive, drive

In search for signs of life

To feel alive

We just drive

Oh oh oh oh oh

There’s nothing left to lose

Oh oh oh oh oh

We’ll drive on forever

There’s nothing left to lose

Searching for each other

We just drive

The Chevin Colours

Into an ocean without a shore

Looking for freedom without a door

Healing the sickness without a cure

It’s all lost in translation a little more

I know you never really loved me

But you hid it well

I know you never really wanted me

But I could never tell

I bid you all a fond farewell

Sometimes the rain will sting

Sometimes the colour drains from love

Turning the light out

To make it stop

I’ve given you what you wanted

But what you wanted is not a lot

Oh we’re all guilty of a reckless heart sometimes

But don’t act so reckless when you’ve got mine

I know you never really loved me

But you hid it well

I know you never really wanted me

But I could never tell

I bid you all a fond farewell

Sometimes the rain will sting

Sometimes the colour drains from love

The colour keeps running

The colour keeps running

The colour keeps running over

The colour keeps running

The colour keeps running

The colour keeps running over

I know you never really loved me

But you hid it well

I know you never really wanted me

But I could never tell

I bid you all a fond farewell

Sometimes the rain will sting

Sometimes it’s everything you love

You love

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

The Chevin When The Party’s Over

When the party’s over

When the curtain falls

When the doors are closing

The writing’s on the wall

Sing it loud

With love

And stay with me

When the party’s over

When the world has hurt you

When your heart is bruised

When the road seems daunting

No matter which you choose

Walk it proud

With love

And stay with me

When the party’s over

No long goodbye

No after show

The falling sky

Means it’s time to go

My kingdom for one kiss

Everything I own

Love, all we have is love

When the party’s over

When the day is through

When the walls are closing

No matter what you do

Sing it loud for love

And stay with me

When the party’s over

Sing it loud for love

And lie with me

Come and die with me

When the party’s over

When the party’s over

The Chevin Blue Eyes

I wanna take your hand

And lead you to a promised land,

The writing on the wall’s saying

God bless you all.

I’ll lead you to a promised land.

Don’t get so down on life

We’re all tryin’ to fill the holes inside

Sometimes they get too wide, honey

And some are hard to find

We’re all tryin’ to fill the holes inside

Ode to the loveless lost

When you just can’t seem to shine away the rust

Sing it the way it’s meant to be

There’s no surprise

When I’m staring in your blue eyes

The years go by so fast

And it’s hard to make the good things last

But don’t stare into the night darlin’

It’ll be alright

I know it’s hard to make the good things last

Ode to the loveless lost

When you just can’t seem to shine away the rust

Sing it the way it’s meant to be

There’s no surprise

When I’m staring in your blue eyes

Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh

Ode to the loveless lost

When you just can’t seem to shine away and see

Beyond the dust

Sing it the way it’s meant to be

It’s no surprise

When I’m staring in your blue eyes

When I’m staring in your blue eyes

When I’m staring in your blue eyes

The Chevin Dirty Little Secret

Lies

You never really told me and I never felt to ask you why

You told me not to worry then I told you where to sleep tonight

I wanted to be with you and you wanted me to come around

Don’t be shy

The night has made you drowsy

And the pills have got you high

You’re seeing life like a painting

And hear it like a lullaby

The colors are amazing

I wonder why

Don’t write my name in the mirror

Just see the signal when I tip my hat

I’ll be your saint and be your sinner

I’ll be an actor or an acrobat

I’ll be your dirty little secret

I’ll be no more and happy with that

Don’t say it, don’t call me out

Don’t be late, don’t make a sound

Get it ready, g-g-g-get it out

Let’s run

Let’s run away together far away from everyone

To where the desert meets the sky and the mountain hits the sun

Where no one will ever find us, no one at all

No one

Don’t write my name in the mirror

Just see the signal when I tip my hat

I’ll be your saint and be your sinner

I’ll be an actor or an acrobat

I’ll be your dirty little secret

I’ll be no more and happy with that

Don’t say it, don’t call me out

Don’t be late, don’t make a sound

Get it ready, g-g-g-get it out

We’re star catching baby

We’re all star catching

Don’t write my name in the mirror

Just see the signal when my heart explodes

I’ll be a saint and be your sinner

As long as no one knows

I’ll be your dirty little secret

Hold me tight and don’t let me go

Surrender to the sound

Hold on and don’t look down

We’re star catching baby

Always star catching

The Chevin So Long Summer

So long summer

Farewell to stars that light my sky

Love and remember

That just like comets passing by

Everybody leaves sometime

Goodbye lover

I’ll miss the colours in your eyes

There won’t be another

But just like bottles in the tide

Everybody leaves sometime

Nothing lasts forever

Every empire has a rise and a fall

If we could live forever

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

I keep walking

The waves keep crashing at my feet

My head keeps talking

Oh if I could only get some sleep

You would be with me

Nothing lasts forever

Every empire has a rise and a fall

If we could live forever

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

It wouldn’t make no sense

Nothing lasts forever

Like every empire will rise and will fall

If we could live forever

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

It wouldn’t make no sense at all

If we could live forever

It wouldn’t make no sense

The Chevin Menwith Hill

Hold on

To the edge of the world

To end of the rope

With a heart full of hope

I can’t look when I see you online

Thinking how you were mine

And who’s on your mind

So I run

To the carnival lights

Where the white horses ride

To the songs in the night

I hear a melody from signals in the sky

Under the covers where the wires intertwine

Come with me honey to the colours in your mind

Science and satellites keep Saturn fill the sky

Over the town our stars collide

Where’s the sun gone from her eyes

Oh I’ll take you back to Menwith Hill

One million hearts in a line

And all they do is cry

As the moon multiplies

And what’s dead

When you got ghosts inside your head

And the band starts to pound

To the old gospel sound

I hear a melody from signals in the sky

Under the covers where our wires intertwine

Come with me honey to the colours in your mind

Science and satellites keep Saturn fill the sky

Over the town our stars collide

Where’s the sun gone from your eyes

Oh I’ll take you down

To where the world

Don’t make no sound

Oh honey I was blind

To keep counting

To the end of time

To the end of time

(Is everything gonna be OK?)

I listened to love

I listened to love…

The Chevin Borderland

Under the desert sun

Under the desert sun

We used to dream as one

We used to dream as one

Where has the river gone

Oh where has the river gone

It used to flow upon

This borderland

In borderland we are the light of the living

In borderland we are the blood of a desert war

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Under the desert sky

Under a desert sky

We used to live and die

Under a desert sky

Where has the magic gone

Where has the magic gone

It used to dance, used to clap our hands

And fill the sky with its song

In borderland we are the light of the living

In borderland we are the blood on the desert floor

In borderland we are the light of the living

In borderland we are the blood of a desert war

The blood of a desert war

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Under the desert sun

Under the desert sun

Under the desert sun

We dream as one

Under the desert sun

Under the desert sun

Under the desert sun

We dream as one

We dream as one

Because we are one

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

In borderland we are the light of the living

In borderland we are the blood on the desert floor

In borderland we are the light of the living

In borderland we are the blood of a desert war

The blood of a desert war

The Chevin Gospel

There are songs beyond the sky

Missing melodies to find

You got stars inside your eyes

Tiny parts of holy lies

There are mountains on the sun

Where the ancient horses run

All tryin’ to find where they went wrong

So they can see how far they’ve come

I say

Running river

Take me home

Running river

Take me home

You were born to live a life

Passing by you at the speed of light

You’re always wrong, you’re never right

A spinning world and satellite

So sing a song for love and grace

Write a screenplay for the human race

A tale of tragedy and waste

To wipe that smile from off your face

So I say

Running river

Take me home

Back to the town that I came from

To how it was when I was young

Under timeless skies

Running river

Take me home

Back to a world where I belong

(Oh running river run run run)

(Oh running river run run, run)

(Oh running river, oh running river)

(Oh running river run run run)

[x2]

Running river

Take me home

Back to the town where I came from

To how it was when I was young

Under timeless skies

Oh running river run run run

Oh running river run run run

Running river

Running river

Running river

Take me home
