Earth Moving lyrics

(One glance is) Holy

Lead vocals: Adrian Belew
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

Harmony always, when I look around me
And your smile I see,
I can feel it surround me
A miracle I find in your company

One glance is all that I need
What I was searching for, I've found it

Can you believe it, I'm walking on water
And I'm high off the ground
Must be some mystique that weaves it
I'd never have thought of this power I've found

One glance is all that I need
What I was searching for, I've found it
One look, and now I believe

I could just wrap my whole self around it

[ Chorus ]

Holy, to me, just one glance is holy
One touch of your heart, to me, that's holy

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

You've seen it, walking on water
Miracles like you never seen before

You've seen it, walking on water
Miracles like you never seen before

[ Repeat Chorus Six Times ]

Hostage

Lead vocals: Max Bacon

Background vocals: Mike Oldfield

You can't speak, you can't sleep
You daren't move, you're confused
You never talk, you can't walk
You can't feel, you're not real

If I open my eyes, just far enough,
I can see what you're doing
Go on, fight to the end, it's tough enough
When you're on the road to ruin. Yeah!

[ Chorus ]

You're a hostage of the heart,
Twisted 'round the smallest finger
Two burning eyes are tearing you apart,
Turn your soul into a cinder

There's no rest, you're possessed
You can't leave, you can't breathe
The door slams, your head hangs
You blank stare, you don't care

If you open your eyes just far enough,
You see the street lamps flicker
Go on, fight to the end, it's tough enough
When you know the end is bitter

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

You're number's up, you're eyes shut
You're on the brink, you can't think
You wanna run, but you're stunned
You can't lie, you don't try

If I open my eyes, look hard enough,
I see the blue light flashes
Go on, fight to the end, it's tough enough,
Riding on the road to ashes

[ Repeat Chorus Twice ]

I'm a hostage of your heart,
You can twist me 'round your finger
Your burning eyes are tearing me apart
Turn my soul into a cinder
Boy, boy, hostage of your heart
Can you twist me 'round your finger?

Far Country

Vocals: Mark Williamson

Vocals: Mark Williamson

She takes the rain,
And turns it to sun,
And my soul, she fills it
Where once was a desert,
Rivers now run
And my storm, she stills it
She takes the rain

[ Chorus ]

She breathes the air
From a far country
This bond survives
Like a tall, tall tree
I close my eyes
And how far I see... she takes the rain

She gives me hope
When there's nothing but pain
I can't explain it
Two different leaves,
But the branch is the same
Forever, let it be... she takes the rain

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

She takes the rain

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

Innocent

Vocals: Anita Hegerland

I know you'll never stay the same
In time, most of us lose it
But I'm hoping, just the same,
You'll shine and learn how to use it

Speak to me, like the very first speak
You are magnificent when you're innocent
Laugh to me, like the very first laugh
You are from heaven sent when you're innocent

My hands hold you and you adore,
Blue eyes turn my direction
Surprise in everything and your
Body moves in perfection

Smile to me, like the very first smile
You are magnificent when you're innocent
Walk to me, like the very first walk
You are from heaven sent when you're innocent

Sunrise, here comes another day
Cow jumps over the moon, now
Sometime, you will look back and say,
"Today, I'll sing my own tune"

Sing to me, like the very first sing
You are magnificent when you're innocent
Laugh to me, like the very first laugh
You are omnipotent when you're innocent

Speak to me, like the very first speak
You are magnificent when you're innocent
Smile to me, like the very first smile
You are from heaven sent when you're innocent

Sing to me, like the very first sing
You are magnificent when you're innocent
Laugh to me, like the very first laugh
You are omnipotent when you're innocent

Runaway Son

Lead vocals: Chris Thompson
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

Good sister, won't you let me in?
I'm in need of some warmth and shelter
It's a hard luck story, don't know where to begin
I've been riding on life's helter-skelter

[ Chorus 1 ]

Save me, Holy Mother, please, save me!
I got a heart of gold

[ Chorus 2 ]

And for your love I'd go hungry and thirsty
I need a saviour and you're the one
I throw myself into the arms of mercy
There's still hope for the runaway son

My good father, he say to me:
"Better come back to your senses
There's an empty bottle lying on the floor
And it's undermined your defences"

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Twice ]

Good brother, show me how to get home
I've been walking in the backyard of Satan
I'm so stubborn that I'll never give in,
But now my heart's cold and aching

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Chorus 3 ]

And for your love I'd go hungry and thirsty
I need a saviour and you're the one
I throw myself into the arms of mercy
Salvation for the runaway son

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 3 Once ]

See The Light

Lead vocals: Chris Thompson
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

I been waiting at this frontier
And it seems like a hundred years,
But I couldn't see past the gate
I couldn't see past the hate

Now I'm coming back to my senses
I can see a light past the fences,
Standing at the borderline
I've come to the end of the line

[ Chorus 1 ]

Will-power, give me some to survive
One more hour and I'm coming alive
I can see the light

[ Chorus 2 ]

And there's blue sky breaking
Through the edge of the night
I can see the light
Ooh, I can feel the light
Whoa-whoa!
Whoa-whoa!

The most precious thing I possess
Is knowing the answer's yes,
And soon my liberty
Will be a reality

I've been given a second chance
I could open my arms and dance
Open that barricade
No longer I'm living afraid

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

Now I climb the steps to freedom
The open gates, I can see them
Hands that I once knew
Beckoning me through

As the sunlight touch my face,
I can feel the warm embrace
Arms surround me
My life has found me

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

Whoa-whoa!
Ooh, I can see the light

I can see the light
Coming in bright
I can feel the light,
Freedom in sight
Oh, I can see the light
Coming in bright
I can feel the light

I can see the light,
It's coming in bright
I can feel the light,
Freedom in sight
I can see the light
Oh, I can feel the light

I can see the light,
It's coming in bright

Earth Moving

Lead vocals: Nikki "B" Bentley
Additional vocals: Max Bacon
Background vocals: Keith Murrell, Sonia Jones Morgan, Maggie Ryder, Jackie Challenor, Carl Wayne and Lance Ellington

I hear a voice from paradise,
Looks like a new day dawning
So clear, I just open my eyes
Can't you hear the voice calling?

I feel a rush in the air tonight,
I can feel the Earth moving
Love is a beacon, a guiding light
Can't you feel the Earth moving?

[ Chorus ]

Feel the Earth move,
Now I'm wrapped in a sweet love's arms
Reaching out for you
There's something magic in the air tonight,
I can feel the Earth move

And it moves me
Can't you hear the voice calling?
Looks like a new day dawning

Reach out - it's a leap in the dark,
But there's no danger of falling
Give out, give it straight from the heart
You feel like thunder rolling

I feel a rush in the air tonight,
I can feel the Earth moving
Love is a beacon, a guiding light
Can't you feel the Earth moving?

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

And it moves me
Can't you hear the voice calling?
It feels like thunder rolling

[ Repeat Chorus Four Times ]

Blue Night

Lead vocals: Maggie Reilly
Background vocals: Maggie Reillly and Daniel Lazerus

To the whole room, her eyes are numb
As she reads from a true love story
From the pages of a book, her lover comes
Her heart bleeds, it's a true love story

Misty shape in the window by her bed,
Dreaming on what she's read
Hero takes her hand and leads her through
Who knows what this night will do?

[ Chorus ]

Only in the blue night, he comes to her
Only in the blue night
That's when the whole night belongs to her,
Only in the blue night

I see a dark face by the moon's glow
As she reads from a true love story
Beckoning hand scratching at the window
Her heart bleeds, it's a true love story

Misty path and the night is endless
She could be a queen or a desert princess
Hero takes her hand and leads her through
Who knows what this night will do?

[ Repeat Chorus ]

Only in the blue night,
Only in the blue night
That's when the whole night belongs to her,
Only in the blue night

She wants to break free
From the cold light of reality
And as she drifts away,
I hear her voice say, "come away"

Dark skin glistening by the silver light
This is the hero come tonight
And taking her hand, he leads her through
Who knows what this night will do?

[ Repeat Chorus Twice ]

Blue, blue night,
Only in the blue night
Blue, blue night,
Only in the blue night

Blue, blue night,
Only in the blue night
Blue, blue night

Nothing But

Lead vocals: Carol Kenyon
Additional vocals: Paul Lee

Nothing But
You will have nothing but love,
Nothing but hope, blue sky above
You will find nothing but peace,
Nothing but the sun shining on your face

[ Chorus ]

When you open your eyes,
When you open your eyes

You will feel nothing but free,
Nothing but trust, that's how it should be
And one who cares about nothing but you,
Watching close by the whole night through

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

You will feel nothing but warm,
Nothing but shelter from the storm
You will have nothing but rest,
Deep in your heart, nothing but the best

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

Nothing but love when you open your eyes
Nothing but love when you open your eyes

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

Nothing but love when you open your eyes
Nothing but love when you open your eyes

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

Nothing but love, nothing but love
Nothing but love when you open your eyes
Nothing but love when you open your eyes
Ooh, nothing but love when you open your eyes
Ooh, nothing but love when you open your eyes

Bridge To Paradise

Lead vocals: Max Bacon
Additional vocals: Phil Spalding
Background vocals: Keith Murrell, Sonia Jones Morgan, Maggie Ryder, Jackie Challenor, Carl Wayne and Lance Ellington

This town is just a fake
A place where you can't tell the devil from your brother
Poisoned every breath you take
It's just like one nightmare after the other

You know it's not too late to leave tomorrow
'Cos I know where I'm going

[ Chorus ]

I am building a bridge to paradise
I am building a bridge to paradise

This town you can't control
A place that fascinates hits you with the drama
Don't worry now for my soul
'Cos I'm heading for a higher panorama

You know it's not too late for you to follow
'Cos I know where I'm going

[ Repeat Chorus Twice ]

You know it's not too late for you to follow
'Cos I know where I'm going

[ Repeat Chorus Twice ]
