The Fixx Cameras In Paris

A call is taken

The plans are made

The pawns are placed

For the masquerade

Closed hotel rooms

Off the Place Pigalle

All concealed

Behind the femme fatale

Take it from me

There’s cameras in Paris

Take it from me

There’s cameras in Paris

Political friction is greased by detente

One country can and another one can’t

All the movements in a metaphor

Who is the sleeper found dead on the floor

Take it from me

There’s cameras in Paris

Some papers are missing

Exposure’s automatic

Exposure’s automatic

Exposure’s automatic

In Paris

Umbrellas rolling in Hyde Park

Announcement made don’t be seen after dark

Tension rising in the Eastern Block

Who are the two men with the

Same swiss clock

Take it from me

There’s cameras in Paris

Some papers are missing

There’s cameras in Paris

So take it from me

There’s cameras in Paris

Some papers are missing

Exposure’s automatic

Exposure’s automatic

Exposure’s automatic

In Paris

So take it from me

There’s cameras in Paris

Some papers are missing

Exposure’s automatic

Exposure’s automatic

Cameras in Paris

Cameras in Paris

Exposure’s automatic

The Fixx Climb The Hill

To me you’re inside out and upside down

To me you’re inside out and upside down

I opened a door in me, like a cat with curiosity

Unwrapped the perfect present and saw a new history

Panic politics don’t get me down

Bible thump posturing won’t turn me ’round

It seems the rules were made for some other time

Too much money in the pipeline

Too much fighting overseas

Too much hatred in the heartland

Too much talking over me

Look around and listen, I don’t exist without you in my life

I’m having a good time by the way

Sitting here wondering, how can I say?

Those pretty pictures don’t paint the truth

Very clever edits conceal a lie

If you want to hear the rules being made, you’ve got to have

Your ear pressed to the ground

Too many lost without a requiem

Too many lost without a cause

Too many win without a winner

Too many want to go to war

[CHORUS]

I’ll climb the hill and look you down

To me you’re inside out and upside down

I’ll climb the hill and look you down

To me you’re inside out and upside down

Too much money in the pipeline

Too much fighting overseas

Too much hatred in the heartland

Too much talking over me

[CHORUS]

I’ll climb the hill and look you down, down, down

(To me you’re inside out and upside down)

(To me you’re inside out and upside down)

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) I’ll climb the hill

(To me you’re inside out and upside down)

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) I’ll climb the hill

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) down, down, down

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) too much money in the pipeline

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) too much fighting overseas

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) I’ll climb the hill

(To me you’re inside out and upside down)

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) too many lost without a requiem

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) too many lost without a cause

(To me you’re inside out and upside down) I’ll climb the hill

(To me you’re inside out and upside down)

The Fixx Don’t Be Scared

You left me shadows

Etched on the wall

You don’t hear my whisper

And I’m deaf from your call

Dream your lie in your tainted sun

Tell me I’m right when I’m left for dead

I want to see you come in

Before I give in to you

You left me echoes

Footsteps in the hall

You marked the borders

And I built the walls

Don’t be scared don’t be scared

You can face the truth of it all

Don’t be scared don’t be scared

If you can’t bear the weight of it all

You hear my whisper

There’s no doubt at all

You walk round the borders

I’m stuck with the walls

The Fixx Calm Animals

Calm animals expect nothing

live suspicious to balance out

the effect of reason on their sunrise

there’s a moving hide

calm animals with no shackles

free on a shrinking plain

so presented, it’s economics

small wonder the pastures die

calm calm calm calm animals

free on a shrinking plain

calm calm calm

adventures to roam alone

So civilized the code stifles

a race with gestures has lost its way

the chance was given to think social

but we choke on greed and excess

Going by going by

just for politics we live the lie

you cry, we cry

part of history will wonder why

The Fixx Happy Landings

It takes a whole night of moonlight

To shine on the path of my fate

One tiny sign to align me with time and space

When I’m hiding from somebody somewhere

When I’m scared on my feet

It takes sadness with all the delights

To make a whole day complete…so

Happy landing you’ve been there

Welcome back from disarray

Take my hand now to somewhere

Take me on, take me on, take me so far away

It takes more than a full tank of gas

To drive away from the past

We keep making promises

Knowing they just can’t last

Are we tiring of pleasures

Designed to keep our heads in the sand

If you’re out there in orbit, alive

Now’s a good time to land….so

Happy landings, you’ve been there…

Rise from the ashes of fires started so long ago

Keep your chin up and cheer up

Cause life springs from the glow!!

If the truth of the matter lies

Deep in our hearts

Are we waiting for luck to decide

When light breaks the dark…so

Happy landings you’ve been there…

Where you’ve been

Where you are

Where you’re going to

The Fixx Built For The Future

Some say a trick, some say a look

It’s just a way of thinking after all

From underneath something concrete

It’s just a way of coping, coping with it all

Some with revolt, some will obey

Who attains perfection and who’s to say

A criminal or a cardinal

They’re both frightened of angels

It doesn’t mean much now

It’s built for the future

For some a walk, to some a dance

It’s just a form of motion one and all

Without dispute the least aware

Will no doubt see the ragings of a fool

First we look then we spy

The man who has a vision wants it all

A sin so clean rule supreme

The power to undermine

It doesn’t mean much now

It’s built for the future

It doesn’t mean much now

It’s built for the future

It doesn’t mean much now

Build it up, build it up for the future

Some say a trick, some say a look

Some say a trick, some say…

First a glance, then a chance

To make a simple gesture worth it all

A conquer all, a desert stall

That serves a drink to people under the sun

At last the place, now where’s the time

To take in all the other points of view

Some are inert but one exists

To build a bridge

It doesn’t mean much now

It’s built for the future

It doesn’t mean much now

It’s built for the future

It doesn’t mean much now

So build it, build it up, for the future

It doesn’t mean much now

Some will revolt, some will obey

(Built for the future)

Who attains perfection, and who’s to say

It doesn’t mean much now

So build it up, build it up, built for the future

It doesn’t mean much now

A criminal, a cardinal

(Built for the future)

Both frightened of angels

It doesn’t mean much now

So build it, build it up

Built for the future

It doesn’t mean much now…

The Fixx Secret Separation

We are passengers in time

Lost in motion, locked together

Day and night, by trick of light

But I must take another journey

We must meet with other names

We must meet with other names

You touched my heart so deeply

You rescued me now free me

Don’t watch me cry just see me go

I’ll take away the strongest feelings

You will ever know

There will be no more isolation

In our secret separation

You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me

Now free me

We are passengers in time

Lost in motion, locked together

Day and night, by trick of light

But I must take another journey

We must meet with other names

If you hold me you will hurt me

Be brave

There will be no more isolation

In our secret separation

You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me

Now free me

We are matching spark and flame

Caught in endless repetition

Life for life we’ll be the same

I must leave before you burn me

I am the stranger who deserts you only to love you

In another life

There will be no more isolation

In our secret separation

You touched my heart so deeply, you rescued me

Now free me

I’ll bear one precious scar that only you will know

Passengers in time, free me

[repeat x5]

The Fixx Falling In Love

Well, you can hide all your secrets

Behind every stitch of the clothes that you wear

And you can cover your tracks

With your big city act that you play everywhere

But those slow sultry shadows in the back of your mind

Tell a tale on you

I can see it all falling one brick at a time

Love’s finally coming to you

[CHORUS]

You’re falling in love

Just when you’re learning to be alone

You’re falling in love

Just when you’re yearning to make it on your own

Problems like these everyone needs

There has to be a way

Have what you want and get what you need

Every night and every day

Between method and madness your joy turns to sadness

When choices are made

You don’t need to be choosing between love and losing

There’s nothing to trade

Oh you can hold on to something and still let it go

When you want it to

And you don’t need excuses ’cause everyone knows

Love’s finally coming to ya

[CHORUS]

You’re hesitating, and I’m just here waiting

Wondering when you’ll see

That you’re already there, you’ve got something to share

Baby, share it with me

Share it with me

[CHORUS]

(Falling in love)

Just when you’re learning

Falling in love

Just when you’re yearning to make it on your own

Problems like these everyone needs

The Fixx All Is Fair

Man as a beast

Came down from the trees

Crawling around

Spread his disease

Was up on the rocks

Playing with fire

Inventing his needs

To quench the desire

Blood on his hands

Love on his mind

Hell as a future

Leaving Heaven way behind

[CHORUS]

All is fair in love and war (na)

Kiss me you fool it’s love that we’re all dying for

All is fair in love and war (na)

Head for the hills, who knows what all this fighting’s for?

Man is a beast

Shame at the feast

Too much to eat

Throw out the waste

At the beggar’s bare feet

Aim for the Moon

Shooting the stars

Insanity roaming the streets

But the sane drive new cars

Blood on his hands

Love on his mind

Selling the future

The debts are left behind

[CHORUS]

A-oo

Up in the the alter zone

Man is a beast

Down in his structured home

Still man is a beast

Up on the rocks

Playing with fire

Inventing his needs

Oh, quench his desires

All is fair in love and war

Kiss me you fool it’s love that we’re all dying for

All is fair in love and war (na)

Time and patience always find the open door

[CHORUS]

Wo-ho, man is a beast

Man is a beast

The Fixx Are We Ourselves

Lost feelings return

So maybe I can learn

To stop the world of a lie

This time around

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?

Because seen through these eyes

We lead a double life

No one will know

So check it out steppin’ out here I go

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?

Are we ourselves and do we really know?

Well, lost spirit returns

Now maybe we learn

To stop this world of a lie

To this earth we are bound I ask you

Are we, are we, are we ourselves?

(Are we ourselves?)

Are we ourselves, and do we really know?

Ooo, do we know, are we ourselves?

(Are we ourselves?)

(Are we ourselves?)

Are we ourselves?

Do we really know?

(Are we ourselves?)
