A Different Beat Lyrics

Paradise
It's not often that you find someone
Who can fulfill all your dreams inside
Like an angel from above
She was the one for me, believe

But it doesn't wither like a flower in snow
I always wanted you to know

We're going to build a bridge
Between our hearts
Going to cross the river of love
Into paradise, paradise
Going to walk up the road, hand in hand
To the castle in the sky
Where we're going to live
Going to live, yeah

And when she opens up her eyes
It's like a perfect sunrise outside
I put my fingers through he hair
And it feels like silk to me

But it doesn't wither like a flower in snow
I always wanted you to know

CHORUS

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Don't you know
We're going to build a bridge
Between our hearts
Going to cross the river of love
Into paradise, paradise

CHORUS to fade


A Different Beat
Let's not forget this place
Let's not neglect the our race
Let unity become
Life on earth be one

So let me take your hand
We are but grains of sand
Born throught the winds of time
Given a special sign

So let's take a stand
and look around us now, people
So let's take a stand
and look around us now, people...

Eeyeahoh, eayehoh, eayeh (and the world is turning)oh, byyah
To a different beat
Eayehoh, eayehoh, eayeh (and the world is turning)oh, by yah
(to a different beat)

Humanity's lost face
Let's understand its grace
Each day one at a time
Each life including mine

So let's take a stand
and look around us now, people oh, people oh people!

CHORUS

I've seen the rain, fall in Africa
I've touched to snow of Alaska
(Oh tell me now...)
I've felt the mists of Niagara
Now I believe...
In you..

repeat CHORUS twice

How far we've come
and how far to go
rain does not fall
on one roof alone..(to a different beat)..



Melting Pot
Take a pinch of white man
Wrap him up in black skin
Add a touch of blue blood
And a little bitty-bit of red indian boy

Curly, black and kinky
Oriental sexy
If you lump it all together
Well, you've got a recipe for a get-along scene
Oh what a beautiful dream
If it could only come true
You know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it's got
Keep it stiring for a hundred years or more
Turning out coffee-colored people by the score

Rappers in the fires
Bishops and the gurus
We had the Beatles and the Sun-Gods
a long time ago (it's true)
But then it really didn't matter
What religion you choose
No no no

Mick and Lady Faithful
and everyone who's graceful
You know the living could be tasteful
Why don't we all get together in a lovin' machine
I'd better call up the Queen
It's only fair that she know
You know, you know

CHORUS X 2 (to fade)


Ben
Ben, the two of us need look no me
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I'll never be along
And you, my friend, will see
You've got a friend in me
Ben, you're always running here and there
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
If you ever look behind
And don't like what you find
There's one thing you should know
You got a place to go

I used to say "I" and "Me"
Now it's "Us:, Now it's "We"

(Repeat)
Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben



Don't Stop Looking For Love
Been so long since I found someone
You came as some surprise
But I knew you were meant for me
When I looked into your eyes
So beautiful and strong
Boy where did you come from
As life passed me by
You fell from the sky
and I could hear you say

Don't Stop Looking For Love
It can be found
In the strangest places
Just when you've given up
Along comes a miracle
That turns your life around
So don't stop, looking for love

Walking around with my head hanging
down, I felt so all alone
And your love seemd miles away
I was a heart without a home
A woman in the rain
You took the clouds away
Now bright as the sun
Our love has begun
And I could hear you say...

CHORUS

Suddenly my dream had
come and rescued me
I can't believe I finally reached the day
Now I can say...

CHORUS to fade



Isn't It A Wonder
It's the sign of the times, girl
Sad songs on the radio
It's the sign of the times, girl
As the leaves begin to go
But all these signs now,
showing on my face
Proving me wrong, taking it's place

And I pray to God
That there's more that we can do, yeah
And I pray to God
That there's more that we can show
More that we can do, yeah

Isn't it a wonder
as a newborn baby cries
And isn't it a wonder
with the sweetness in my eyes
and isn't it a wonder
at the crossroads of my life
Isn't it a wonder?
Isn't it a wonder, to me?

It's the way of the world when,
Wrong takes hold of right
It's the way of the world
In which we've all lost sight
But isn't this world
Too simple to be true?
Holding on to memories of you

And I pray to God
That there's more that we can do, yeah
And I pray to God
That there's more that we can show
More that we can do, yeah

CHORUS

That I can see, a change in me
But I won't look back
Cos that's behind me
And after all,
Strong words are spoken
My heart will never be, never be
Never be broken.

CHORUS

That I can see, a change in me
But I won't look back
Cos that's behind me
And after all
Strong words are spoken
My heart will never be, never be
Never be broken.



Words
Smile, an everlasting smile
A smile can bring you near to me
Don't ever let me find you wrong
Cause that would bring a tear to me
This world has lost it's glory
Lets start a brand new story
Now my love
You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say

It's only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart away

Talk, in everlasting words
And dedicate them all, to me
And I will give you all my life
I'm here if you should call to me
You think that I don't even mean
a single word I say

It's only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart away
It's only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart away

Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da

This world has lost it's glory
Let's start a brand new story
Now, my love
You think that I don't even mean
a single word I say

It's only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart away
It's only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart away



It's Time
Here at home
The thoughts racing through my crazy mind
Trying to figure out
If I'm loving you this one more time
And when I got the mail
It made me close the door just right behind
On a trail of clothes
Left lying here
Thrown across the floor now

Maybe it's the way this love
was meant to be
and maybe it's the only way
for you and me...

It's time, to say goodbye
It's time, oh please don't cry girl
It's time, two reasons why
It's time, I will never lie to you

You cast your spell
But the magic has been broken down
And I'm all packed up
With empty bottles lying all around
It's like a flickering flame
That casts a shadow on the brightest day
And it does it help to know
That I feel the same
And it's gone now

Maybe it's the way this love
was meant to be
and maybe it's the only way for you and me...

repeat CHORUS



Games Of Love
Many years ago now
in the Garden of Love
A temptation that was watched from above
I'll be your Adam, if you'll be my Eve
So come show me that you
will not deceive

That love, just a crazy feelin
Deep and hidden meaning, it's true
And love, takes some understanding
So don't you go and break all the rules

We're talking A-B-C
I'm singing do-re-mi
I'll teach you endlessly
Games of Love

We're counting 1-2-3
I'm writing "U 4 Me"
I'll teach you endlessly
Games of Love

Listen to me now girl
'Cos you've known all along
It's a game of love so don't play it long
I'll be your Romeo and you Juliet
Just read the book and you won't forget

That love, just a crazy feeling
Deep and hidden meaning, it's true
And love, takes some understanding
So don't you go and break all the rules

repeat CHORUS



Strong Enough
Strong enough for two.

Love see us through,
Because of you,
I know we're strong enough,
Love see us through,
Through and through,
This love is strong enough for tw.o

I believe in all that love can bring,
Ha, I can see it's meant to be,
And we’ll be together.

(Together)
You see the best in me,
(Forever)
We were meant to be,
'Cause I know it,
Yes, I know there's always you to come home to.

CHORUS

Like a child I want this love to grow,
Oh, in my smile I tell it all,
So we'll be.

(Together)
You see the best in me,
(Forever)
We were meant to be,
'Cause I know it,
Yes, I know there's always you to come home to.

CHORUS

Strong enough for two.

Strong enough cos our lives are tough,
We’ve been together 'cause love's no bluff,
All you sexy ladies put your hands in the air,
Slam your body down, like you just don't care.

(Together)
You see the best in me,
(Forever)
We were meant to be,
'Cause I know it,
Yes, I know there's always you to come home to.

CHORUS X 3 to fade


Heaven Knows
Tears run dry on a young man's face
Feel the glow of a warm embrace
Been on a boat to the
edge of somewhere
Searched for you almost everywhere
No more hills left for me to bear
Cause now I'm almost there

But baby loves' growing much stronger
From the day that you said
you were gonna be mine
From the way I was lead into your mind

Everything comes to those who wait
Like a winter for spring
And the beauty it brings
And everyone searches
For the perfect one
As Heaven Knows
As Heaven Knows

If you believe, like you know that I do
You will see I'm the one for you
Never forget when I take your hand
At last, I'm here, can't you understand
So bring on the night and I'll make it right
Bring a dull day and I'll make it bright
Cause now we're almost there

But baby loves' growing much stronger
From the day that you said you were
gonna be mine
From the day I was lead into your mind
Maybe love's making me stronger
From the day that you said you were
gonna be mine
From the day I was lead into your mind

CHORUS to fade



Crying In The Night
Alone just sitting there
Thinking of you till it hurts
You're young, so innocent
Without a care in the world
You're there but not visible
My expectations become

But do you think it's right?
And do you think it's right?
Crying in the night
For crying in the night
(ooh in the night)

My road was different
There's so much that you have to learn
A little hand in mine
And all the smiles and laughter is fine
Wherever I'll be, land or sea
I will care for you

CHORUS

Each day provides it's own gifts
Time brings all to pass
Writing comes more easily
When you've got something to say

You're young and beautiful
Have no enemy but time
In time, take time
When time does last
For time is no time
When time is passed

CHORUS to fade



Give A Little
Give a little, take a little, pray a little
Give a little, you know you've got to
Take a little, just one more time
Pray a little, to make it happen

And I'd swear, I'd cross the road
But you'd avoid me
Please tell me, why?
It ain't fair, I'd call you up
But you won't answer
Just no reply

Too blind to see that ache inside
So have a heart, I'm begging you

Give a little, take a little, pray a little
Say you want to
Give a little, you know you've got to
Take a little, just one more time
Pray a little, to make it happen
Say you want me, girl

Somehow with every chance
I'll make you happy
You won't believe
Sing out loud with each and every
Waking moment
You'll fill my head

CHORUS

Say you want me, girl
And wait and see
Too blind to see that ache inside
So have a heart, I'm begging you
Say you want me

CHORUS to fade



She Moves Through the Fair
My young love said to me
My mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you
For your lack of kind
Then she stepped away from me
And this she did say
It will not be long love,
Rill our wedding day.

She stepped away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Moved here and move there
Then she made her way homeward
With one star awake
As the swan in the evening
Moves over the lake

I dreamt it last night
That my dead love came in
So softly she moved
That her feet made no din
Then she came close beside me
And this she did say
It will not be long love,
Till our wedding day.
