The Dream Academy The Love Parade

Look out of your window on any day

From June to September the love parade’s

Out on the street where you live and you know

It’s just a matter of time before it takes over

They’ve been married for so many years

Now a young love serenade blows sweet nothing in her ear

They’re lonely together, when they’re not apart

It feels like she’s holdin’ on to someone else in the dark

The love parade is on

Even against all odds

It’ll go on forever

The love parade

The love parade

Only matinee shows

The love parade

But if he could put himself into a different skin

He’d be worryin’ about what he’d let himself in for

Hangin’ in the air apparent

A point of view almost transparent

So you sold your soul for a pocket full of sweet talk

Given up kisses at the end of a slow walk

And when it’s done you put your world back on

‘Cause she’s otherwise engaged married to someone

Oh the love parade goes on

Even when you’re gone

It’ll go on forever

The love parade

The love parade

Only matinee shows

The love parade

Everybody knows

The love parade

Married to someone

Married to someone oh

Everybody knows

Body everybody everybody every when

This is dedicated to the one I love

This is dedicated to the one I love

This is dedicated to the one I love

[Repeat to fade]

The Dream Academy In Exile

I, I was never very young

I walk like a stranger through this world

No,

No you don’t know me

Although I’m with you I’m so far away…

But it wasn’t the heat that

Threw the night into turmoil

Put the city in darkness

And soldiers on the street

But the car

Burning up on the roadside

For all those in exile

Waiting to be released

In city

Surrounded by slums

Invaded by soldiers

Invaded by debt

Under dictator

Who escalates terror

Provoking further

Intensive civil unrest

And in the fear of

The nights’ disappearances

A conspiracy of silence

Spread up around us like a wall

Between commemoration candles

And the twelve o’clock curfew

You started to feel less

Until you couldn’t feel at all

Stood on the wrong side

Of the barricades in the national strike

Then became exile

Remember:

Soldiers shooting into the crowd ath the university

Growing up under government

Where to be young is to be the enemy

Remember:

Where soldiers tear gas churches

And there’s ten thousand missing persons

Whose cases are never solved

And the government advises not to get involved

No Te Metas…

Someday we’ll return there

From the years spent in exile

To the land where we were born

From the years spent in exile

Someday we’ll be free there

In the land where we were born

The Dream Academy Moving On

“All out”, cried the boy and put the girl in danger

Whose only weapon was to believe in love

All out but don’t say forever too late for re-arrangement

He’s already thinking of another face

And she’s drawing on the memory she can’t erase

They’re moving on

Keep a moving it, yeah

They’re moving on

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

Now the weight of intention carried the motion

And the damage was over done

And was started as a bid for independence

Has ended with a starting gun

And he’s wishing that he never said, “All out”, oh yes, he does

But the words just get lost in space

And you know it’s such a lonely place

When you realize you’ve lost that face

She’s moving on, counter revolution has taken place

We’re moving on

(We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time)

Yeah, we’re moving on

(We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time)

(We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time)

Just keep moving on

When you realize you’ve lost that face

You’ve lost that face, oh

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

We’ll make it this time, I know we’re gonna make it this time

The Dream Academy New Light

Johnny was a child

When the wheels of progress came

And slowed things down again

Oh, when the wheat was high

And a big moon sailed in a rolling sky

And the stars came down so close

You could touch them just like rings

And you felt so happy-sad

It all seemed part of the same thing

Oh, when the days ran wild

And he was a child

And later on when the tractors came

And made light work, that would have taken days

So with nothing else to do

We just turned the days to rain

It would take an endless chain of circumstance

To get up and start again

Oh, when the tractors came

The the field of grain

We have nothing else to do

Johnny, now those days have ended

There’s no more time on our side

They say, in a little while

It will all take on a new- take on a new light

We have nothing else to do

We have nothing else to do

We have nothing else to do

We have nothing else to do

Take on a new light

Take on a new light

Take on a new light

The Dream Academy Doubleminded

Would you like to come back out just for the ride

We will have to check it in my doublemind

‘Cause it’s getting to the point of no return

And I’m finding there’s one lesson I still haven’t learnt

And everything I do brings me back to the same point of view

Don’t be doubleminded

Or you’ll falling where you used to stand strong

Don’t be doubleminded

Or you’ll be talking to yourself and yet you just won’t get along

Would you like to come back later I’ll be home

On second thoughts, I might just want to be alone

‘Cause I’m having trouble making up my mind

And the more I think about it the less I find

I really know the answer and it’s taking up my time

Don’t be doubleminded

Or you’ll falling where you used to stand strong

Don’t be doubleminded

Or you’ll be talking to yourself and yet you just won’t get along

Now there’s a lot of things I want to tell you

But I’m having trouble pulling them through

Because the doublemind is taking over

And it’s so much harder when you’re working with two

Don’t be doubleminded

Or you’ll falling where you used to stand strong

Don’t be doubleminded

Or you’ll be talking to yourself and yet you just won’t get along

The Dream Academy Not For Second Prize

Time itself is bringing down our ride

We’re on the ground

We’ve almost made it

Hard to find a way

To say goodbye

And yet the final kiss betrayed it

In the shadow

Of the world outside

Don’t let it darken down your eyes

You never could have

Second prize

Out into the world

On shaking ground

And leaving all the lights behind us

From my arms

Where no warmth could be found

Just the love that had confined us

In the shadow of the things you know

Don’t ever think of letting go

No, not for

Second prize

Time is up and

Bringing down our ride

We’re almost down

The music’s ending

The Dream Academy The Edge Of Forever

When you were young

Did you ever love somebody?

Like I love

I love you now

‘Cause now that you’re older

I see you don’t mind

Letting go of my hand in a crowd

You don’t wanna hold tight

And when we kissed one night

There’s a million hearts

Beating in a row

I wish they go away

I’ll say it again

There’s a million hearts

It’s the break to see

Every time you go away

When you were young

Did you ever fall down

Graze your knee

Want to run to someone

‘Cause now that older

I’ve been falling down

I want to run to someone

But there’s nobody around

I can feel the sign

There’s a million hearts

Beating in my row

I wish they would go away

I’ll say it again

There’s a million hearts

It’s the break to see

Every time you go away

Every time you go away

Think about the things I say

Think about it twice as long

Tell me what’s going wrong

In the southern sky

The breeze is so wild

The bridge is so lonely

The reasons that life

Feeling so afraid

Talking about a, two hearts

Beating as one

Now hey

No

I’ll say it again

There’s a million hearts

Beating in a row

I wish they would go away

I’ll say it again

There’s a million hearts

It’s the break to see

Every time you go away

The Dream Academy Humdrum

Just a touch of industry

Monday morning

Put on your collar and head straight out

Everyone’s waiting, don’t be late

Uptown midday

Sound of the city on slow decay

See the faces behind private eyes

As you pencil in their lives

In the humdrum

Can you hear the doldrum

Stepping outside the firing line

There’s a foreman standing on a bridge of iron

And the men walk across it to go back to work

In their Monday morning shirts

And they don’t run

And when the work’s done

At nights, the streets are alive with

Catwalk, West Side Story, flashback parade

In this quick fire, cry tough world

Men with ambition

Will

Be loved

Moving up to another rung

Feel the heart of the city beating tight as a drum

Playing ‘Move on up’ and the never stop

A whole world living out ‘Beat the Clock’

And it’s said and done

‘Look after number one’

Ultimatum, deadline

Wound up so tight

Till you can’t unwind

Worlds within worlds, some built out of nothing

By those who left this world behind

Driven on by fear or ambition

Now

Waiting in line

Things will work out fine

They just take a little time

The Dream Academy Power To Believe

He was born and raised in privilege

Took everything it gave

Had financial help from his father

From the cradle to the grave

And this enabled him to believe in the things

He did try hard, God forbid he should give in to pointless wandering

But he would wander from time to time

Seeking guidance from the Holy he tried to find the truth

Among the radical revolutionaries

Who canonized his youth

And gathering strength from the feeling that

To believe could undoubtable change the world

Turned his back on education

And listened to the word

So with little or no formal education

He taught himself to work

Would often steal the pain it took

To rise up from the dirt

And out of desperation would

Disturb the millionaires

Whose patronage had helped the power

Rise up from thin air,

Then he sunk back into despair

Take me out in another world

Keep me warm and dry

Where other men are worrying

And other men must die

And when the lies are spoken

Give endurance to the weak

And when the heart of a man is broken

Give the power to believe
