 Only When I Sleep

Music: The Corrs, Oliver Leiber, Paul Peterson & John Shanks
Lyrics: Andrea Corr

You're only just a dream boat
Sailing in my head,
You swim my secret oceans
Of coral blue and red.
Your smell is incense burning,
Your touch is silken yet,
It reaches through my skin
Moving from within
And clutches at my breast.

But it's only when I sleep,
See you in my dreams,
Got me spinning round and round,
Turning upside down.
But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep,
Got me spinning round and round,
Turning upside down.
But it's only when I sleep.

And when I wake from slumber
Your shadow's disappeared,
Your breath is just a sea mist
Surrounding my body.
I'm working through the daytime
But when it's time to rest
I'm lying in my bed
Listening to my breath,
Falling from the edge.

But it's only when I sleep,
See you in my dreams,
Got me spinning round and round,
Turning upside down.
But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep, in my sleep,
Got me spinning round and round,
Turning upside down.
But it's only when I sleep.

It's only when I sleep.

Up to the sky
Where angels fly
I'll never die,
Hawaiian high.

It's reaching through my skin
Moving from within
And clutches at my breast.

But it's only when I sleep,
See you in my dreams, dreams,
Got me spinning round and round,
Turning upside down.
But I only hear you breathe.

In bed I lie,
No need to cry,
My sleeping cry,
Hawaiian high.
But it's only when I sleep.

Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down.
Up to the sky
Where angels fly
I'll never die,
(Got me spinning round and round)
Hawaiian high.
(Turning upside down)
But it's only when I sleep.

Got me spinning round and round,
Turning upside down.
 
 

 When He's Not Around

Music: The Corrs
Lyrics: Andrea Corr

I can't breathe, I can't sleep

He's uncool an unsophisticat
He's a tightrope walker on an open path
He's a maze of curiosity
He is the living bread that cures my appetite

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town

His mystique is one of innocence
I feel I'm lounging in lovely in his big blue eyes
And I would be preening in paradise
If I were always beside him like a Siamese

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town

Can I keep him in my galaxy
Can he live within my fantasy

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town
When he's not in town, Yeah
 
 

 Dreams

Music & Lyrics: Stevie Nicks

Now here you go again, you say you want your freedom,
Well who am I to keep you down.
It's only right that you should play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound, of your loneliness.
Like a heartbeat.. drives you mad,
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, yeah, what you had, and what you lost.

Yeah, thunder only happens when it's raining,
Players only love you when they're playing,
Yeah, women, they will come and they will go.
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know.

Well here I go again, I see the crystal visions,
I keep my visions to myself,
Oh it's only me that wants to wrap around your dreams
And have you any dreams you'd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness like a heartbeat.. drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost, yeah remember what you had.

Yeah, thunder only happens when it's raining,
Thunder only happens when it's,
Players only love you when they're playing,
Players only love you when they're,
Yeah, women, they will come and they will go, they will go.
When the rain washes you clean you'll know.
Yeah, thunder only happens when it's raining,
Thunder only happens when it's,
Players only love you when they're playing,
Players only love you when they're,
Women, they will come and they will go, they will go.
When the rain washes you clean you'll know.

You will know,
You will know,
You will know,
You will know,
You will know.
 
 

 What Can I Do

Music: The Corrs
Lyrics: Andrea Corr

I haven't slept at all in days,
It's been so long since we've talked.
And I have been here many times,
I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

What can I do to make you love me?
What can I do to make you care?
What can I say to make you feel this?
What can I do to get you there?

There's only so much I can take
And I just got to let it go.
And who knows I might feel better, yeah,
If I don't try and I don't hope.

What can I do to make you love me?
What can I do to make you care?
What can I say to make you feel this?
What can I do to get you there?

No more waiting, no more aching,
No more fighting, no more trying.

Maybe there's nothing more to say
And in a funny way I'm calm.
Because the power is not mine
I'm just gonna to let it fly.

What can I do to make you love me?
(What can I do to make you love me?)
What can I do to make you care?
(What can I do to make you care?)
What can I say to make you feel this?
(What can I do to make you love me?)
What can I do to get you there?
(What can I do to make you care?)
What can I do to make you love me?
(What can I do to make you love me?)
What can I do to make you care?
(What can I do to make you care?)
What can I change to make you feel this?
(What can I do to make you love me?)
What can I do to get you there?
(What can I do to make you care?)

And love me,
Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, love me, love me.
Love me, love me.
Love me.
 
 

 I Never Loved You Anyway

Music: The Corrs & Carole Bayer Sager
Lyrics: Andrea Corr & Carole Bayer Sager

You bored me with your stories,
I can't believe that I endured you for as long as I did.
I'm happy it's over, I'm only sorry
That I didn't make the move before you.

And when you go I will remember
To send a thank you note to that girl, to that girl,
I see she's holding you so tender,
Well I just wanna say, just wanna say:

I never really loved you anyway,
No, I didn't love you anyway,
I never really loved you anyway.
I'm so glad you're moving away.

Valentino, I don't think so,
You watching MTV while I lie dreaming in an MT bed.
And come to think of it,
I was misled,
My flat my food my everything
And thoughts inside my head.

Before you go I must remember
To have a quiet word with that girl, with that girl.
Does she know you're not a spender,
Well l just have to say, just wanna say:

I never really loved you anyway,
No, I didn't love you anyway,
I never really loved you anyway.
I'm so happy you're moving away.

Yea, I am.
Yea, I am.

And when you go I will remember,
I must remember to say:

I never really loved you anyway,
No, I didn't love you anyway.
I never really loved you anyway,
No, I didn't love you anyway,
Never really loved you.
I never really loved you anyway,
I never loved you anyway,
No, I didn't loved you anyway.
Never loved you,
Never truly loved you anyway,
I never loved you.
I'm so happy you're moving away,
Yeah I'm delighted you're moving away.
 
 

 So Young

Music: The Corrs
Lyrics: Sharon Corr

Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea.
Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea.

We were taking it easy bright and breezy, yea.
We are living it up just fine and dandy, yea.
And it really doesn't matter that we don't eat,
And it really doesn't matter if we never sleep,
No it really doesn't matter, really doesn't matter at all.
'Cause we are so young now, we are so young, so young now.
And when tommorow comes, we can do it all again.

We are chasing the moon just running wild and free.
Oh, we are following through every dream and every need.

And it really doesn't matter if we don't eat,
And it really doesn't matter if we never sleep,
No it really doesn't matter, really doesn't matter at all.
'Cause we are so young now, we are so young, so young now.
And when tommorow comes, we can do it all again.
Yea we are so young now, we are so young, so young now.
And when tommorow comes, we just do it all again.
All again, all again,
All again, all again.

Yea, yea, yea, we are so young now, we are so so young now.
And when tommorow comes, we just do it all again.
Yea we are so young now, we are so young, so young now.
And when tommorow comes, we just do it all again.

We are so young.
(Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea)
We are so young.
(Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea)
We are so young.
(Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea)
We are so young.
 
 

 Don't Say You Love Me

Music: The Corrs & Carole Bayer Sager
Lyrics: Andrea Corr & Carole Bayer Sager

I've seen this place a thousand times,
I've felt this all before,
And every time you call
I've waited there as though you might not call at all.
I know this face I'm wearing now,
I've seen this in my eyes.
And though it feels so great I'm still afraid
That you'll be leaving anytime.

We've done this once and then you closed the door,
Don't let me fall again for nothing more.

Don't say you love me unless forever,
Don't tell me you need me if you're not gonna stay.
Don't give me this feeling I'll only believe it,
Make it real or take it all away.

I've caught myself smiling alone
Just thinking of your voice.
And dreaming of your touch is all too much,
You know I don't have any choice.

Don't say you love me unless forever,
Don't tell me you need me if you're not gonna stay.
Don't give me this feeling I'll only believe it,
Make it real (make it real) or take it all away.

We've done this once and then you closed the door,
Don't let me fall again for nothing more.

Don't say you love me unless forever,
Don't tell me you need me if you're not gonna stay.
Don't give me this feeling I'll only believe it,
Make it real (make it real) or take it all away.
Say you love me,
Don't tell me you need me if you're not gonna stay.
Don't give me this feeling I'll only believe it,
Make it real (make it rel) or take it all away,
Take it all away.
I Take it all away.
 
 

 Love Gives Love Takes

Music & Lyrics: The Corrs, Dane DeViller, Sean Hosein, Oliver Leiber, Stacey Piersa & Elliot Wolff

Just when I thought I was safe,
You found me in my hiding place.
I'd promised never again
I wouldn't give my heart, but then...
Closer, closer, I moved near you,
The way I want you makes me fear you.

Love breaks and love divides,
Love laughs and love can make you cry.
I can't believe the ways
That love can give
And love can take away.

I find it hard to explain,
It's crazy, but it's happening.
And I'm falling again
Much further than I've ever been.
I'm falling deeper than the ocean,
I am lost in this emotion.

Love breaks and love divides,
Love laughs and love can make you cry.
I can't believe the ways
That love can give
And love can take away.

Ahh-ahh ahh ahh, Oh yeah,
Ahh-ahh ahh ahh, yeah yaeh yeah,
Ahh-ahh ahh ahh.

Love can give
And love can take away.

Love breaks and love divides,
Love laughs and love can make you cry.
I can't believe the ways
That love can give
And love can take away.
Love breaks and love divides,
Love laughs and love can make you cry.
I can't believe the ways
That love can give
And love can take away.
Love breaks and love divides,
Love laughs and love can make you cry.
I can't believe the ways
That love can give
And love can take away.
Love breaks and love divides.
 
 

 Hopelessly Addicted

Music & Lyrics: The Corrs & Oliver Leiber

Opened my eyes today
And I knew there's something different.
Saw you in a brand new way
Like the clouds had somehow lifted.
And if yesterday I heard
Myself saying these words
I would swear it was a lie.

I don't know why but suddenly I'm falling.
Was I so blind,
I was loving you all the time,
Now I'm hopelessly addicted,
Helplessly attracted.

I'll make a wish this day
And I'll send it to the heavens.
That we will always stay
Entwined like this forever.
And though the world may change
Coz nothing stays the same,
I know we will survive.

I don't know why but suddenly I'm falling.
Was I so blind,
I was loving you all the time,
Now I'm hopelessly addicted,
Naturally we acted.

I don't know why but suddenly I'm falling.
I was so blind,
I was loving you all the time,
And now I'm hopelessly addicted,
Helplessly attracted,
Chemically reacted, yeah.
I was loving you all the time.
Hopelessly addicted,
Helplessly attracted,
Chemically reacted,
Naturally we acted.
Yeah, Ohh.

 Intimacy

Music & Lyrics: Billy Steinberg, Rick Nowels & Neil Geraldo

Last night before you fell asleep
You whispered something to me
Was it just a dream
I'm gonna listen to you close
Coz your goodnight kiss
Felt like a ghost

What are you trying to say to me?
What are you trying to say?

Everybody's searching for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Everybody's hurting for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Hey yeah, yeah, yeah

We come into this world alone
From the heart of darkness
The infinite unknown
We're only here a little while
And I feel safe and warm
When I see your smile

Baby don't move away from me
Baby don't pull away

Everybody's searching for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Everybody's hurting for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Remember when you were a child
And your momma would hold you in her arms
And rock you to sleep
Now darling there's just you and I
Let's give each other everything, baby baby...

Everybody's searching for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Everybody's hurting for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Baby come and lay down next to me...
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Everybody's searching for intimacy
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Hey yeah, yeah yeah yeah
 
 

 Queen Of Hollywood

Music & Lyrics: The Corrs, Glen Ballard, Dane DeViller & Sean Hosein

She drove a long way through the night
From an urban neighborhood,
She left her mother in a fight
For a dream misunderstood.
And her friends they talk on corners,
They could never comprehend.

But there was always something different
In the way she held a stare,
And the pictures that she painted
Were of glamour and of flair.
And her boyfriend though he loved her,
Knew he couldn't quite fulfill,
He could never meet her there.

She's never gonna be like the one before,
She read it in her stars that there's something more.
No matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks,
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood.

And the cynics they will wonder
What's the difference with this dream
And the dreams of countless others,
All believing in TV.
They see their handprints in a sidewalk,
Flashing cameras on the scene
And a shining limousine.

She's never gonna be like the one before,
She read it in her stars that there's something more.
No matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks,
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood,
Queen of Hollywood.
She's believing in a dream,
Queen of Hollywood,
It's a loaded fantasy.

Now her mother collects cut-outs
And the pictures make her smile,
But if she saw behind the curtains
It could only make her cry.
She's got hand prints on her body,
Sad moonbeams in her eyes,
Not so innocent a child.

She's never gonna be like the one before,
She read it in her stars that there's something more.
No matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks,
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood,
Queen of Hollywood.
No she's never gonna be like the one before,
She read it in her stars that there's something more.
No matter what it takes and even though she breaks,
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood,
Queen of Hollywood.
She's the Queen of Hollywood,
Queen of Hollywood,
Queen of Hollywood.
And her friends still talk On Corners.
Queen of Hollywood.

She's the Queen of Hollywood.
She's the Queen of Hollywood.
 
 

 No Good For Me

Music: The Corrs
Lyrics: Andrea Corr

I see a home in a quiet place
I see myself in a strong embrace
And I feel protection from the human race
It's not parental

But it's a fantasy, not a reality
And it's good, no, no good for me, you have no idea

That I'm walking through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me

You have a home You have a home, in a quiet place
And someone else feels your strong embrace
She is protected and she needs no chase
And do you love her?

You're a mystery, you are the heart of intrigue
You're no good no no good for me
You have no idea

That I'm walking through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move beside me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me
No it's no good for me, no good for me

It's a make-believe, you have no idea
That I'm walking through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move close to me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me

Through the clouds
When you're looking at me
I'm feeling like a child
Vulnerability
I am shaking like a leaf if you move close to me
And you're all that I see
But it's no good for me
 
 

Little Wing

Music & Lyrics: Jimi Hendrix

Now she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind
That's running wild.
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairytales,
All she ever thinks about is riding with the wind.

When I'm sad she comes to me
With a thousand smiles
She gives to me, free.
'It's alright, it's alright' she says,
Take anything you want from me,
Anything.

Now she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind
That's running wild.
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairytales,
All she ever thinks about is riding with the wind.

When I'm sad she comes to me
With a thousand smiles
She gives to me free.
'It's alright, it's alright' she says,
Take anything you want from me,
Anything.

Fly Little Wing...Yeah, Yeah.
Fly Little Wing...
I want her to fly.
