One Good Reason
(Gary Moore)

Take me out of here.
This place is gettin' much to small.
Make me disappear,
vanish through the nearest wall.

Give me one good reason why I should stay.
Give me one good reason to go on this way.
Give me one good reason why I should stay with you,
with you.

Take me out of here.
This place is closing in on me.
Make it disappear,
somewhere else I wanna be.

Give me one good reason why I should stay.
Give me one good reason to go on this way.
Give me one good reason why I should stay with you,
with you.
How, yeah.

Give me one good reason why I should stay.
Give me one good reason to go on this way.
Give me one good reason why I should stay with you,
with you, with you.

Take me out of here.

Cold Wind Blows
(Gary Moore)

Sun don't shine 'round here no more,
since my baby walked on out that door.
She broke my heart, make no mistake.
All I did was give.
All she did was take.
But don't you know,
where she goes,
the cold wind blows.

Well, my baby told so many lies.
I couldn't see through my blinded eyes.
She choked me up with her bad, bad seed.
Took the flowers I gave her
and strangled them with weeds.
But don't you know,
where she goes,
the cold wind blows.

I ain't gonna cry no more.
I ain't gonna cry no more.
I ain't gonna cry no more,
cry no more.

Sun don't shine 'round here no more,
since my baby walked on out that door.
She broke my heart, make no mistake.
All I did was give.
And all she did was take.
But don't you know,
where she goes,
the cold wind blows.
The cold wind blows.

I ain't gonna cry no more.
I ain't gonna cry no more.
I ain't gonna cry no more.
I ain't gonna cry no more.
Ain't gonna cry no more,
cry no more.
Gonna cry no more.
Ain't gonna cry no more.

I Have Found My Love In You
(Gary Moore)

I can still remember,
like it was yesterday,
the pain inside my heart
as you turned to walk away.

I don't know and I don't care
what the people say.
I don't know and I don't care,
I love you anyway.

For I have found my love in you.
And I have found a love so true.

I can still remember,
like it was just the other day.
I could have done without those stories
while you're so far away.

I don't know, I don't care
what my friends all say.
I don't know and I don't care,
I love you anyway.

For I have found my love in you.
And I have found a love so true.

Ooh, that first sweet night together.
I will remember it forever.
I put my heart on the line.
Though I knew I was wrong,
I would keep holding on.

Do you still remember
all those times ago?
When you lay like a flame in my arms,
and I could never let you go.

For I have found my love in you.
And I have found a love so true.
Yes, I have found my love in you.
And I have found a love so true.

I don't know and I don't care.
Ooh, that first sweet night together.
I don't know, I don't care.
I will remember it forever.

One Fine Day
(Gary Moore)

One of these days we'll be together.
One of these days we'll be as one.
Love and illumination
all across every nation.

One fine day, we will walk in the sunshine.
One fine day, we will reach to the stars.
Oh-oh, wow-wow-wow-wow-wo-wow.

One of these days we'll be together.
One of these days we'll be as one.
Love and illumination
all across every nation.

One fine day, we will walk in the sunshine.
One fine day, we will reach to the stars.
Oh-oh, wow-wow-wow-wow-wo-wow.

Even as we speak, time marches on.
Even as we speak, the devil's plan goes on.

One fine day, we'll be together.
One fine day, we'll be as one.
Oh-oh, wow-wow-wow-wow-wo-wow.
Oh-oh, wow-wow-wow-wow-wo-wow.

One fine day.
One fine day.

One fine day.
One fine day.
One fine day.
One fine day.

Like Angels
(Gary Moore)

In every heart a story is told.
There's a way you can believe in forever.
In every life the story unfolds,
like a mystery for you to see
and tear away the mask.

Hold on to your dreams,
learn how to fly like angels.
Hold on to your dreams,
soaring above, wings of love.

In every tear a lesson to learn.
There's a way you can believe in forever.
Time never hears the reasons we give.
It just marches on until it's gone,
forever and a day.

Hold on to your dreams,
learn how to fly like angels.
Hold on to your dreams,
soaring above, wings of love.

Hold on to your dreams,
learn how to fly like angels.
Hold on to your dreams,
soaring above, wings of love.

Hold on to your dreams,
learn how to fly like angels.
Soaring high above,
wings made from love.

What Are We Here For?
(Gary Moore)

Searching for the answers,
looking for the meaning of our different ways.
Try to understand it,
all of our misgivings is the price we pay.

But what are we here for?
Have we learned a single thing?
What are we here for?
Have we been through everything,
or must we stay until we get it right?

Travelling through the darkness,
guided by the light that shines on everyone.
Each of us an island,
moving through the universe since time began.

But what are we here for?
Have we learned a single thing?
What are we here for?
Have we been through everything,
or must we stay until we get it right?

So many of our dreams are telling us just who we are,
where we're from and how we came so far.
If we would only listen to the things within we know are true,
then all of us would see a brighter day.

Searching for the answers,
hidden in the meaning of our different ways.
Try to understand it,
all of our misgivings is the price we pay.

But what are we here for?
Have we learned a single thing?
What are we here for?
Have we been through everything,
or must we stay until we get it right?
Or must we stay until we get it right?

Always There For You
(Gary Moore)

The rhythm of our lives is changing day by day.
It seems no matter what I do or what I say,
that I'm always there for you,
but you're never here for me.

So many times you take me halfway to my dreams,
but then you close the door, and every time it seems
that I'm always there for you,
but you're never here for me.
Yes, I'm always there for you,
but you're never here for me.

The rhythm of our lives is changing day by day.
It seems no matter what I do or what I say,
that I'm always there for you,
but you're never here for me.
Yes, I'm always there for you.

I am always there for you,
but you're never here for me.
Yes, I'm always there for you,
but you're never here for me.

I'm always there for you.
I'm always there for you.
I'm always there for you.
I'm always there for you.

Afraid Of Tomorrow
(Gary Moore)

All of our destinies
written within us.
No more of falling for
the world's biggest lie.
Are you so jealous of the wind and her freedom?
Nothing can stop you now.
Live in your dreams.

Are we afraid of tomorrow?
Are we afraid of tomorrow?

Crossing the wilderness,
finding the treasure.
Buried within yourself
all you desire.
Soul of the world can see
all you are feeling.
Heeding the wise man's words,
all things are one.

Are we afraid of tomorrow?
Are we afraid of tomorrow?

Mmah, ah.

All of our destinies
written within us.
No more of falling for
the world's biggest lie.
Are you still jealous of the wind and her freedom?
Nothing can stop you now,
so live in your dreams.

Are we afraid of tomorrow?
Are we afraid of tomorrow?

Afraid of tomorrow.
Afraid of tomorrow.

Oh, afraid.
Oh, oh afraid.
Oh, afraid.

Where Did We Go Wrong?
(Gary Moore)

Ever since it all began,
a woman and an only man.
What happened to the world in which we're living?
We take, when all this time we could be giving.
And I ask myself each day,
where did we go wrong?
And I wonder when I pray,
where did we go wrong?

Ever since it all began,
one woman and a lonely man.
I worry for the world in which we're living.
We take, when all this time we could be giving.
And I ask myself each day,
where did we go wrong?
And I wonder when I pray,
where did we go wrong?

With every turn our world is growing older.
But does it mean our hearts are turning colder?
With every teardrop falls a shining star.
It seems so wrong, but now we've come so far.

After all is said and done,
I know I'm not the only one
who worries for this world in which we're living,
who cares about the love we should be giving.
And I ask myself each day,
where did we go wrong?
And I wonder when I pray,
where did we go wrong?

Business As Usual
(Gary Moore)

The pink crucifix with the ivory Jesus I wanted.
The man with the blood on his hands, as I ran from the river.
Kissing my cousin, before they took her to the graveyard.
Trembling at night from the violence I heard from my bedroom.

These are my memories.
These are my memories,
coming home.

Called up at school, for my hand wasn't there to say "present".
Running the gauntlet outside the Club Rado at dawn.
Rory and me, without a spare string between us.
Catching the last bus halfway through I'm So Glad.

These are my memories.
These are my memories,
coming home.

Philip and me and 'the Brush' ridin' 'round in a Transit.
The Bailey, the Strangely's, the smoke and the speed and the acid.
I lost my virginity to a Tipperary woman.
A heart that was broken, but it wasn't the first or the last time.

These are my memories.
These are my memories,
coming home.

Under the wings of the man they called Green, I found freedom.
Three children, one wife, a twist of the knife and a scandal.
Divorce, separation, some kind of salvation came lately.
So many have gone, but I know it's just business as usual.

Oh, these are my memories.
These are my memories.
These are my memories.
These are my memories.
These are my memories.
These are my memories,
coming home.

These memories keep coming back.
Those memories keep coming back.
All those years ago.
All those years ago.

These are my memories.
These are my memories.
These are my memories.

Dark Days In Paradise
(Gary Moore)

I should be feelin' so happy
to wake up each day in the sun.
But I can't seem to raise a smile
since this day's begun.
'Cos when you're feelin' so lonely,
there's just one thing you need.
Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.

I followed her to the airport,
I got down on my knees.
But she just stood there smiling,
ignoring all my pleas.
Then she left me so lonely,
it made my poor heart bleed.
Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.
M-hm.

I tried drinkin' that white rum,
I tried some black stuff too.
But it don't make no difference
when I'm so far from you.
'Cos when you're feeling so lonely,
there's just one thing you need.
Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.

Dark days in paradise,
dark days indeed.
Dark days indeed.
Dark days indeed.

Burning In Our Hearts
(Gary Moore)

When the night goes to sleep,
and the world keeps turnin'.
All alone in my room
with a love that's burnin'.
It's been so long
since I found what I'm lookin' for.
Give me your love,
bring it on home to me.

Love is deep as the ocean.
Love is what keeps us apart.
Love is a sea of emotion,
a fire that burns in our hearts.

There Must Be A Way
(Gary Moore)

There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.

From the first time that I saw you girl,
I was living in a different world.
Oh, you set my soul on fire.
I could see you were my heart's desire.

There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.
There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.

From the first time that I saw your face,
I knew no one could ever take your place.
Ooh, you set my soul on fire.
I could tell you were my heart's desire.

There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.
There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.

Girl, don't you know
that it's always been you.
I just want to love you
my whole life through.

There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.
There must be a way
to save this heart of mine.

There must be a way.
There must be a way.

All The Way From Africa
(Gary Moore)

All the way across the world
you went to find the sunshine in your soul.
Did you find what you were lookin' for?
Did the world show its face to you?

All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.

So many times you told me you were leavin'
to try and find a place where you could go.
Did you find what you were lookin' for?
Did the world show its face to you?

All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.

All the way across the world
you went to find the sunshine in your soul.
Though I missed you so badly,
I was so glad to see you again.

All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.

All the way across the world
you went to find the sunshine in your soul.
Did you find what you were lookin' for?

All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.

All the way from Africa.
All the way from Africa.

My Foolish Pride
(Gary Moore)

Watchin' the river flow,
seems like so long ago
that you were here by me,
here by my side.

I let you walk away.
There were no words to say.
Ooh, what a price I pay,
my foolish pride.

Outside there's a cold wind that's blowin'.
Bring back the dreams of yesterday.
Inside there's no way of knowin'
what those old dreams are tryin' to say.

Watchin' the clouds go by
through these tears in my eyes.
Ooh, how you made me cry
so long ago.

I let you walk away.
Ooh, there were no words to say.
But what a price I pay,
my foolish pride.

Watchin' the river flow,
seems like so long ago
you were right here by me,
here by my side.

I let you walk away.
There were no words to say.
Ooh, what a price to pay,
my foolish pride.

My foolish pride.
My foolish pride.
