1. RUNNING UP THAT HILL (A DEAL WITH GOD)

It doesn't hurt me
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know, know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?
You
It's you and me

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh

You don't want to hurt me
But see how deep the bullet lies
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts
Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?
You
It's you and me
It's you and me, you won't be unhappy

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh

You
It's you and me
It's you and me, you won't be unhappy

Come on, baby
Come on, darling
Let me steal this moment from you now
Come on, angel
Come on, come on, darling
Let's exchange the experience, oh

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Say, if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Say, if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
And be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Say, if I only could
I'd be running up that hill
With no problems

If I only could
I'd be running up that hill
If I only could
I'd be running up that hill


2. HOUNDS OF LOVE

"It's in the trees!
It's coming!"

When I was a child
Running in the night
Afraid of what might be

Hiding in the dark
Hiding in the street
And of what was following me...

Now hounds of love are hunting
I've always been a coward
And I don't know what's good for me

Here I go!
It's coming for me through the trees
Help me, someone!
Help me, please!

Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be
Two steps on the water

I found a fox
Caught by dogs
He let me take him in my hands

His little heart
It beats so fast
And I'm ashamed of running away

From nothing real
I just can't deal with this
But I'm still afraid to be there

Among your hounds of love
And feel your arms surround me
I've always been a coward
And never know what's good for me

Oh, here I go!
Don't let me go!
Hold me down!
It's coming for me through the trees
Help me, darling
Help me, please!

Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be
Two steps on the water

I don't know what's good for me
I don't know what's good for me
I need your love, love, love, love, love, yeah!
Your love!

Take your shoes off
And throw them in the lake!

Do you know what I really need?
Do you know what I really need?
I need love, love, love, love, love, yeah


3. THE BIG SKY

They look down
At the ground
Missing
But I never go in now

I'm looking at the Big Sky
I'm looking at the Big Sky now
I'm looking at the Big Sky
You never really understood me
You never really tried

That cloud, that cloud...
Looks like Ireland
C'mon and blow it a kiss now
But quick

'Cause it's changing in the Big Sky
It's changing in the Big Sky now
We're looking at the Big Sky
You never understood me
You never really tried

This cloud, this cloud...
Says "Noah
C'mon and build me an Ark"
And if you're coming, jump
'Cause

We're leaving with the Big Sky
We're leaving with the Big Sky
And we pause for the jets...
Hup! hup! ...in the Big Sky!

You want my reply?
What was the question?
I was looking at the Big Sky

Tell 'em, sisters!

"Rolling over like a great big cloud
Walking out in the Big Sky!
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Walking out in the Big Sky!"


4. MOTHER STANDS FOR COMFORT

She knows that I've been doing something wrong
But she won't say anything
She thinks that I was with my friends yesterday
But she won't mind me lying
Because

Mother stands for comfort
Mother will hide the murderer

It breaks the cage, and fear escapes and takes possession
Just like a crowd rioting inside
(Make me do this, make me do that, make me do this, make me do that...)
Am I the cat that takes the bird?
To her the hunted, not the hunter

Mother stands for comfort
Mother will hide the murderer
Mother hides the madman
Mother will stay mum

Mother stands for comfort
Mother will hide the murderer
Mother hides the madman
Mother will stay mum


5. CLOUDBUSTING

I still dream of Orgonon
I wake up crying
You're making rain
And you're just in reach
When you and sleep escape me
You're like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark
What made it special
Made it dangerous
So I bury it
And forget

But every time it rains
You're here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen
And I don't know when
But just saying it could even make it happen

On top of the world
Looking over the edge
You could see them coming
You looked too small
In their big black car
To be a threat to the men in power
I hid my yo-yo
In the garden
I can't hide you
From the government
Oh, God, Daddy
I won't forget

'Cause every time it rains
You're here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna to happen
And I don't know when
But just saying it could even make it happen

And every time it rains
You're here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Like your son's coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen
And I don't know when
But just saying it could even make it happen
Ooh, just saying it could even make it happen

We've been cloudbusting daddy

The sun's coming out
Your son's coming out


6. AND DREAM OF SHEEP

Little light shining
Little light will guide them to me
My face is all lit up
My face is all lit up
If they find me racing white horses
They'll not take me for a buoy

Let me be weak
Let me sleep
And dream of sheep

"Attention shipping information in sea areas...Bell Rock, Tiree
Cromaty, gale east...Malin, Sellafield..."

"Come here with me now"

Oh, I'll wake up
To any sound of engines
Ev'ry gull a seeking craft
I can't keep my eyes open...
Wish I had my radio

I tune in to some friendly voices
Talking 'bout stupid things
I can't be left to my imagination

Let me be weak
Let me sleep
And dream of sheep

Ooh, their breath is warm
And they smell like sleep
And they say they take me home
Like poppies heavy with seed
They take me deeper and deeper


7. UNDER ICE

It's wonderful
Everywhere, so white
The river has frozen over
Not a soul on the ice
Only me skating fast
I'm speeding past trees
Leaving little lines in the ice
Cutting out little lines
In the ice, splitting, splitting sound
Silver heels spitting, spitting snow

There's something moving
Under, under the ice
Moving under ice
Through water
Trying to get out of the cold water
'It's me'
Something, someone ...help them
'It's me'


8. WAKING THE WITCH

Wake up
A good morning ma'am, your early morning call
You must wake up
Wake up
Wake up, man
Wake up child, pay attention
C'mon, wake up
Wake up, love
You shouldn't make the night, but see your little lights alive
Stop your lying and sleeping in bed! Get up!
(C'mon! Your ma needs a shower)
little light
Can you not see that little light up there?
Where?
There?
Where?
Over here...
You still in bed?
Wake up you sleepy head
We are of the going water and gone, we are of the water, And the holy land of water...
Don't you know you've got to wake up?
Look whose hear to see you...

...Listen to me...help me baby...talk to me, baby...tell them...listen to me...help me

You won't burn
Red red roses
You won't bleed
Pinks and posies
Confess to me girl
Red red roses
Go down

Spiritus sanctus in nomine...
Spiritus sanctus in nomine...
Spiritus sanctus in nomine...
Spiritus sanctus in nomine...

Poor little thing
Red red roses
The blackbird
Pinks and posies
Wings in the water
Red red roses
Go down
Pinks and posies

Deus et dei domino...
Deus et dei domino...
Deus et dei domino...
Deus et dei domino...

What is it child?

Bless me father, bless me father, for I have sinned...ugh
Red red roses
Help me baby, listen to me, listen to me, tell them baby
Red whole rose
Help me baby
Don't you know?
I question your innocence

This black bird...
...Is a stone around my neck
HA! Damn you woman.AH! Ugh!
This black bird...
...Is a stone around my neck
What say you good people?
Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!
This black bird....
I am responsible for your actions!
Whoa....
Not guilty!
...Help this black bird
Wake of the Witch
Get out of the waves. Get out of the water


9. WATCHING YOU WITHOUT ME

("What's that?")
("It's four, five, six, seven...")

You can't hear me
You can't hear me
You can't hear what I'm saying
You can't hear what I'm saying to you

You watch the clock
Move the slow hand
I should have been home
Hours ago
But I'm not here
But I'm not here

You can't hear me
You can't hear me
You can't feel me
Here in the room with you now
You can't hear what I'm saying
You don't hear what I'm saying, do you?

Can't let you know
What's been happening
There's a ghost in our home
Just watching you without me
I'm not here
("You don't hear me") [backwards]
But I'm not here
(You can't hear me)
But I'm not here
(You don't hear what I'm saying)

"Don't ignore, don't ignore me
Let me...[indecipherable]"
"Don't ignore, don't ignore me
Let me...[indecipherable]"
"Don't ignore, don't ignore me
Let me...[indecipherable]"

"We see you here" [backwards]
"We see you here"
"We see you here"
"We see you here"
"We see you here"
"We see you here"
"We see you here"
"We see you here"

You don't hear me come in
"Help me, baby! Help me, baby! Talk to me! Listen to me
listen to me! Talk to me! Help..."
("You can't hear me") [backwards]
"Listen, baby! Listen to me, baby! Help me, help me, baby!
Talk to me! Talk to me! Please, baby, talk to me!"
("You can't hear me") [backwards]
You won't hear me leaving


10. JIG OF LIFE

Hello, old lady
I know your face well
I know it well

She says
"Ooh-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na!
I'll be sitting in your mirror
Now is the place where the crossroads meet
Will you look into the future?

"Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life
No, no, no, no, no!
Oh, oh, oh"

"Let me live!"
She said
"C'mon and let me live, girl!"
She said
"C'mon and let me live, girl!"
("C'mon and let me live!")

"This moment in time"
(She said)
It doesn't belong to you"
(She said)
It belongs to me

"And to your little boy and to your little girl
And the one hand clapping:
Where on your palm is my little line
When you're written in mine
As an old memory?
Ooh, na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na"

"Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life
Oh no, no, no, no, no!
Never, never, never!
Never, never let me go!"

She said
"C'mon and let me live, girl!'
("C'mon and let me live!")
She said
"C'mon and let me live, girl!"
("C'mon and let me live!")

I put this
Moment......................................here
I put this moment.........................here
I put this moment...

"Over here!
"Over here!
Can't you see where memories are kept bright?
Tripping on the water like a laughing girl
Time in her eyes is spawning past life
One with the ocean and the woman unfurled
Holding all the love that waits for you here
Catch us now for I am your future
A kiss on the wind and we'll make the land
Come over here to where When lingers
Waiting in this empty world
Waiting for Then, when the lifespray cools
For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave
And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools
We are of the going water and the gone
We are of water in the holy land of water
And all that's to come runs in
With the thrust on the strand"


11. HELLO EARTH

"Columbia now nine times the speed of sound"
"Roger that, Dan, I've got a solid TACAN
Locked on, uh, TACAN twenty-three"
"The, uh, tracking data, map data and pre-planned
Trajectory are all one line on the block"
"Roger (?) your (?) block (?) decoded (? recorded?)"

Hello, Earth ("Hello, Earth")
Hello, Earth ("Hello, Earth")
With just one hand held up high
I can blot you out
Out of sight

Peek-a-boo
Peek-a-boo, little Earth
With just my heart and my mind
I can be driving
Driving home
And you asleep
On the seat

I get out of my car
Step into the night
And look up at the sky
And there's something bright
Travelling fast
Look at it go!
Look at it go!

[A men's choral passage in Georgian is sung here]

("Listen!")

Hello Earth
Hello Earth
Watching storms
Start to form
Over America
Can't do anything
Just watch them swing
With the wind
Out to sea

All you sailors
("Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!")
All life-savers
("Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!")
All you cruisers
("Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!")
All you fishermen
Head for home

Go to sleep, little Earth
I was there at the birth
Out of the cloudburst
The head of the tempest
Murderer!
Murderer of calm!
Why did I go?
Why did I go?

[The men's choral passage is sung again several times here]

"Tiefer, tiefer
Irgendwo in der Tiefe
Gibt es ein Licht"

Go to sleep little Earth


12. THE MORNING FOG

The light
Begin to bleed
Begin to breathe
Begin to speak
D'you know what?
I love you better now

I am falling
Like a stone
Like a storm
Being born again
Into the sweet morning fog
D'you know what?
I love you better now

I'm falling
And I'd love to hold you know
I'll kiss the ground
I'll tell my mother
I'll tell my father
I'll tell my loved one
I'll tell my brothers
How much I love them

If I only could, I'd be running up that hill
If I only could, I'd be running up that hill

Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh...

You don't want to hurt me
(Don't wanna hurt me)
(Hee ohh)
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder
(Asunder)
(Hee ohh)
Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
(love)

15. BE KIND TO MY MISTAKES

It is this that brings us together
It is this that brings us together

It's all right, darling
We can do this together
It's all right, darling
I can think of nothing better

I don't know you
And you don't know me
It is this that brings us together

I don't know what you are

(It is this that brings us together)

Looking for in me

(It is this that brings us together)

I don't know what I want
But my heart is leading

Am I yours? Are you mine?
We'll find all we're meant to find
In your life, in my life
There are secrets too dark
To let out, to let go of
To get over

But that's all right, baby
That's all right by me
'Coz, it's all right now

(Just let me say)
Please, ("Yea, yo, yea, yo!")
Please, ("Yea, yo, yea, yo!")
Please, ("Yea, yo, yea, yo!")
Please be kind
Be kind
To my mistakes
Be kind
Be kind
To me

"Lum, lum, lum..."


16. UNDER THE IVY

It wouldn't take me long
To tell you how to find it
To tell you where we'll meet
This little girl inside me
Is retreating to her favorite place

Go into the garden
Go under the ivy
Under the leaves
Away from the party
Go right to the rose
Go right to the white rose
(For me)

I sit here in the thunder
The green on the gray
I feel it all around me
And it's not easy for me
To give away a secret...
It's not safe

But go into the garden
Go under the ivy
Under the leaves
Away from the party
Go right to the rose
Go right to the white rose
(For me)

Go into the garden
Go under the ivy
Go under the leaves
For me

Go right to the rose
Go right to the white rose
I'll be waiting for you

It wouldn't take me long
To tell you how to find it


17. BURNING BRIDGE

Come close to me
Come cross the bridge
I need to know what you have to say to me
(We've been waiting all night long)
What have you got to say to me?
(We've been waiting all night long)
Tell me all about it
(We've been waiting)
Tell me please
(We've been waiting)
Oh, I know

I know it works for me
As we cross the bridge ...the burning bridge...
With flames behind us
We front the line
It's you and me, baby, against the world
(We've been waiting)
I've got to know what you have to say
(We've been waiting)
What have you got to say?
(We've been waiting)
Ooh--oh--oh
(We've been waiting)
Tell me all about it
(We've been...)
All night long
(We've been...)
All night long
(We've been...)

It works for me
It's you and me, babe, against the world
All night long
It works for me
Let's cross the bridge
Oh, I know
(We've been waiting)
I know, I know
(We've been...)
It's you and me, babe
When you stand next to me, babe, it's all right
It's you and me, babe, against the world


18. MY LAGAN LOVE

When rainy nights are soft with tears
And Autumn leaves are falling
I hear his voice on tumbling waves
And no one there to hold me

At evening's fall he watched me walk
His heart was mine
But my love was young, and felt
The world was not cruel, but kind

Where Lagan's light fell on the hour
I saw him far below me
Just as the morning calmed the storm
With no one there to hold him

My loves have come, my loves have gone
And nothing's left to warn me
Save for a voice on the travelling wind
And the glimpse of a face at morning
