Pat Benatar : Wide Awake in Dreamland

Teksty

1. ALL FIRED UP

Livin' with my eyes closed, goin' day to day
I never knew the difference, I never cared either way
Lookin' for a reason, searchin' for a sign
Reachin' out with both hands, I gotta feel the kick inside

All fired up -- now I believe there comes a time
All fired up -- when everything just falls in line
All fired up -- we live an' learn from our mistakes
All fired up, fired up, fired up -- *Hey*

Ain't nobody livin', in a perfect world
Everybody's out there, cryin' to be heard
Now I got a new fire, burnin' in my eyes
Lightin' up the darkness, movin' like a meteorite

All fired up -- now I believe there comes a time
All fired up -- when everything just falls in line
All fired up -- we live an' learn from our mistakes
All fired up, fired up, fired up -- *Hey*


Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live and learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live and learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
(x3)

Now I believe

All fired up -- now I believe there comes a time
All fired up -- when everything just falls in line
All fired up -- we live an' learn from our mistakes
All fired up, fired up, fired up -- *Hey*

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live and learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith


2. ONE LOVE

Once there was a man, and he lived to sing the lions song
As he traveled on the road of hope
One love is the light, shining over every mountaintop
It will lead us to the higher ground
One day every heart will beat strong against the night
Let it be done right now

Once there was a man, and his words became a song of love
And his song became the golden dream
One love is the light, shining over everyone that believes
It will lead us to the higher ground
One day every eye will see truth before the light
Let it be done right now

Some wait, so long
Because our love is strong
This hard road traveled on
Will lead us home, forever

Hear the lion's song, voices cryin' like a desert wind
Yeah he's gone unto his father's land
Afrika tonight, for we truly are one in our hearts
Colors woven in the golden dream

One day every eye will see truth before the light
Let it be done right now
One day every voice will speak strong against the night
Let us be one right now
So let it be

We are the children of a thousand days
We are the people of the hard rain
We are the children of a thousand days
We are the people of the hard rain
We are the people of the hard rain


3. LET'S STAY TOGETHER

People walkin' 'round, all lost and confused
Ready to throw their lives out in the gutter
Ain't no love between 'em, father to son
Man to woman, brother to brother
You and me we move, in opposite directions
Like two spheres on their separate planes
Ain't nobody loved me better than you done
So why can't we just find a way to (live) - stay together

Let's stay together
Life's too hard to make it all alone
An' peace and harmony don't come in packages with bows
An' true love ain't somethin' you find layin' around
Don't you know, let's stay together

Let's stay together, let's stay together

Mothers don't you turn your backs on your children
Children don't you leave the family
Ain't no point in livin', life all by yourself
So why can't we just find a way to (live) - stay together

Let's stay together
Life's too hard to make it all alone
An' peace and harmony don't come in packages with bows
An' true love ain't somethin' you find layin' around
Don't you know, let's stay together

Let's stay together
Life's too hard to make it all alone
An' peace and harmony don't come in packages with bows
An' true love ain't somethin' you find layin' around
Don't you know, let's stay together

Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together

Yeah - peace and love and war and hate
Something's best and something just to get away

Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together


4. DON'T WALK AWAY

Standin' in the doorway, forgot to say one thing
You've always had the power to lift my wings
I know I shouldn't need so much, and we could say goodbye
Oh yes I am a dreamer, I still see us flyin' high
We can start over darlin' it's clear, love is what brought you here

[Chorus:]
Don't walk away, oh, to see if I'll follow
Don't walk away, victory's hollow
Been that road, it didn't take us home
Turn around, you won't be alone
Somethin' brings us together, keeps tearin' us apart

The wounded are much wiser,
We'll just take it from the start
We can start over darlin' it's clear,
Love is what brought you here

[Chorus]

We could start over darlin' it's clear,
Love is what brought you here

[Chorus] (x3)


5. TOO LONG A SOLDIER

We were the children of '45
Loaded like pistols and taught how to die
We looked the enemy straight in the eye
(And never surrender)

Through trenches dug in the back of my mind
I go over the top time after time
Me and the ones we left behind faces
(I'll always remember)

Now there's no fight left within me,
But the writing of this wrong
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
Like brothers in blood it seems
That we've been too long a soldier

In the city of monuments, among the flags of all governments
The order of battle is written in
The shadows of a hard black line
Where people cry for a nations scars
And heroes sleep beneath a blanket of stars
Too young to die, but never too old
To play the general's game

Now there's no life left within them,
But the memory lingers on
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
For brothers in blood we sing that
We've been too long a soldier

Eternal flames blow in the wind,
I've been too long a soldier
Captain of the guard I'm coming in,
Too long, too long a soldier
I've seen so much worth dying for,
So little worth killing over, hey

Eternal flames blow in the wind,
I've been too long a soldier
Captain of the guard I'm coming in,
Too long, too long a soldier
I've seen so much worth dying for,
So little worth killing over
Soldiers gone before me, I will surely fade away

My eyes have seen the glory, and the suffering and the pain
I've been too long a soldier, too long, too long a soldier
I've been too long a soldier

(Too long a soldier)
Eternal flames blow in the wind
(Too long a soldier)
My eyes have seen the glory of
(Too long a soldier)
Oh, say can you see by the dawns early light, ooh, ooh


6. COOL ZERO

Art attacks from subway walls
Sprayed like bullets into concrete face
Everywhere you turn, knuckles are crackin'

Suburban monkeys break ghetto habits
Body guns loaded for a dime
See 'em shed their celebrity skin for
A life of trash and crime

Cool zero, you wanna know where the wild ones go
Cool zero, you wanna know where the bodies are burned
Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot
Cool zero, cool zero, cool zero

Nothin' stops the hit parade
Money makers will be shaken down
Everywhere you go, fingers are snappin'

Commercial prophets shout revolution
Throwin' dirt upon a good mans name
Watch 'em sell his soul for shoes and dance upon his grave

Cool zero, you wanna know where the wild ones go
Cool zero, you wanna know where the bodies are burned
Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot
Cool zero, cool zero, cool zero, cool zero, cool zero
Cool zero, cool zero

In this junk food civilization
They will eat and not think twice
For a dance in the dragons jaws
They will gladly pay the price an' eat
Their fill ohh, ohh hey

Headlines turn in violent day
Run like blood across the printed page
Everywhere you look, atoms are smashin'

Politicians smilin' for the camera
And the pictures make you wanna scream
Maybe baby, we'll just play it cool like Elvis at 19

Cool zero, you wanna know where the wild ones go
Cool zero, you wanna know where the bodies are burned
Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot
Cool zero, cool zero, cool zero, cool zero, cool zero
Cool zero, cool zero


7. CEREBRAL MAN

What's your line this time, cerebral man
Whenever you walk through my door
I start to sweat. i'm falling in slow motion
And i'm losing control
And the walls are too high to jump
The walls are too high to jump

I hear thunder its in my soul
Can you hear the thunder roar, you better get back
I hear thunder, who's in control
Can you hear the thunder roar
Better get back cerebral man
The cutting edge, it hides behind
Those eyes of woe
Your tears won't make a bed of roses
What we had i cannot love
The walls are too high to jump
The walls are too high to jump

And the walls are too high to jump
The walls are too high to jump


8. LIFT'EM ON UP

Lately I been wastin' this hard, hard life
Seems like nothin' ever turns out right
The day's too short, the nights too long
Meet you in the middle if it turns out wrong, hey

Johnny got a job but it ain't no good
Nickels and dimes you know he never could
Seem to make it clean, I'm tellin' you
When the devil got your soul, there ain't much you can do

Now he prays for a light in the dark
To lift 'em on up
(Lift 'em on up )
An' he swears with his hand on his heart
To lift 'em on up
(Lift 'em on up )
You can tear the night down and turn it inside out

Johnny looks around but all he sees
Is a tired old city livin' on its knees
Blue jean faces, fadin' fast
Backs are breaking but the hard times last

Now he prays for a light in the dark
To lift 'em on up
(Lift 'em on up )
An' he swears with his hand on his heart
To lift 'em on up
(Lift 'em on up )
You can tear the night down and turn it inside out
You can tear the night down

Yesterdays, Johnny
(Johnny, Johnny)

Johnny and me used to have a dream
If you ran real fast, it'd set you free
So we kept on running, but our legs got tired
And the dream just kinda faded when the spirit died, hey

Lift 'em on up
Lift 'em on up

Now he prays for a light in the dark
To lift 'em on up
(Lift 'em on up )
An' he swears with his hand on his heart
To lift 'em on up
(Lift 'em on up )
You can tear the night down, you can tear the night down
You can tear the night down and turn it inside out

Lift 'em on up
Lift 'em on up
Lift 'em on up
Lift 'em on up


9. SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN

Sweet Melissa, I often pray for you
I hope your suffering was brief
I hope the angels that watch over all little children
Came for you and took you someplace beautiful and sweet
Aahh..
Suffer the little children

Dear Melissa, I often think of you
Everytime I hold my baby in my arms
I say a prayer for your mama and daddy too
I know they miss you, miss you since you're gone

Suffer the little children
At the hands of evil men
No baby dolls, no teddy bears
No lullabies for them
Every mother's nightmare
Will it ever end
Suffer the little children
At the hands of evil men

You who done the deed better do some prayin' too
Better hope that God's forgivin' like they say
Cause somewhere, somebody keeps a list
Of the evils that men do
An' your name's right up there
I heard `em say
Aahh..

Suffer the little children
At the hands of evil men
No baby dolls, no teddy bears
No lullabies for them
Every mother's nightmare
Will it ever end
Suffer the little children
At the hands of evil men


10. WIDE AWAKE IN DREAMLAND

Movin' light, dream machinery
Crashin' in through my balcony, oh no
I shout down the line but could not get through
'Cause the telephone never rings when you want it to

Ooh, ooh, now you're wide awake in dreamland
Ooh, ooh, now you're wide awake in dreamland

Words of love take your breath away
Just a game that you like to play, oh no
Sleepwalking through a world of pain
Just another pretty face in the romeo rain

Ooh, ooh, now you're wide awake in dreamland
Ooh, ooh, now you're wide awake in dreamland

Chemical decisions never turn out like you planned
Now you're wide awake in dreamland
Now you're wide awake in dreamland

You know your paint by number, life does not excite you
It's a watercolor world that you're livin' in
And when you close your eyes at night
You're wonderin', just where you've been

You were young when you heard the call
Saw it all in your crystal ball and chains
A problem child who can pick and choose
When the sandman calls your name, you cannot refuse

Ooh, ooh, now you're wide awake in dreamland
Ooh, ooh, now you're wide awake in dreamland

Chemical decisions never turn out like you planned
Now you're wide awake in dreamland
In dreamland, in dreamland
