All Over The World (Tennant/Lowe/Tchaikovsky)

It's something, that look in your eyes tonight
Like magic, it's changing everything in sight
I hear it all around me every day
In the music that you play

This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world
This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world

The night sky, like velvet, masks our eyes tonight
And falling, reveals the sun rise and ignite
We feel it all around us every day
In the music that we play

This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world
This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world
This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world

It's sincere and subjective
Superficial and true
Easy and predictable
Exciting and new
to say 'I want you'

This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world
This is a song about boys and girls
You hear it playing all over the world

Playing all over the world
Playing all over the world

Beautiful People (Tennant/Lowe)

City life just leaves me weak
All this madness on the street
Need to get away today
Live my life a different way
Is it only fantasy to dream about a perfect me?

I wanna live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With [xxxx] beautiful people around
I wanna live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With [xxxx] beautiful people around

Buy the latest magazine
and aspire to the dream
Perfect home and perfect kids
Not a life lived on the skids
Is it only fantasy or could it be reality?

I wanna live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With [xxxx] beautiful people around
I wanna live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With [xxxx] beautiful people around

Now I can see myself without a care in the world
It's a sun shining, money spending, green and healthy world
Is it only fantasy or could it be reality?

I wanna live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With [xxxx] beautiful people around
I wanna live like beautiful people
Give like beautiful people
With [xxxx] beautiful people around

Did You See Me Coming? (Tennant/Lowe)

Did you see me coming?
Was I that obvious?
For all of a sudden
there were just two of us

You don't have be in Who's Who to know what's what
You don't have to be a high flier to catch your slot
The night we met was cold and wet
and in a drink or two
I saw you standing there, and I knew
I'd like to be liked by you

Did you see me coming?
Was I that obvious?
For all of a sudden
there were just two of us

You don't have to be what's what to know who's who
You don't need the DNA to find the proof
Then and there my life made sense
You were the evidence

Did you see me coming?
Was I that obvious?
For all of a sudden
there were just two of us
Did you see me coming?
I thought I'd have to make
all of the running
I was all yours to take

Am I superstitious or really religious
Just to thyself be true
But now I think I'm starting to believe in fate
because it delivered you

Did you see me coming?
Was I that obvious?
For all of a sudden
there were just two of us
Did you see me coming?
I thought I'd have to make
all of the running
I was all yours to take

Vulnerable (Tennant/Lowe)

You may think I'm strong and I can do no wrong but I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you
I may be hard to take but you can call me fake 'cause I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you

I know the assumption is that I'm tough
With all my anger, that's fair enough
Even with friends I have to compete
and try being mean when you walk down the street
It's not easy, by the by
Just surviving in the public eye

You may think I'm strong and I can do no wrong but I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you
I may be hard to take but you can call me fake 'cause I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you

You know I can't ever bear to seem weak
or have any doubts, that's just my technique
I put in the hours, at least I don't shirk
A little bravado does much of the work
I am no-one's stepping stone
But I couldn't live life in private, alone

You may think I'm strong and I can do no wrong but I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you
I may be hard to take but you can call me fake 'cause I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you

At night I am lying awake
through the hours, trying to calculate
Am I good enough, can I contrive
to keep this show on the road, will I survive?

I know you must sometimes think I don't care
or even appreciate what we share
Though I'm no-one's stepping stone
The truth is I love you, and I'd go crazy alone

You may think I'm strong and I can do no wrong but I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you
I may be hard to take but you can call me fake 'cause I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you

So vulnerable without you

More Than A Dream (Tennant/Lowe/Xenomania)

Coming soon, something good
Something we can share, understood
Could be better news, we can share
Something's coming soon, I hear it everywhere

(Live it) It's the story of our lives
([xxxx] it) It's the way we've always been
(Live it) Though the mountains may divide
([xxxx] it) We can reach the sea

I believe we can change
We can make it more than a dream
And I believe that we can change
It's not as strange as it might seem

In the air, I can feel
Something magical, becoming real
From the other side, looking in
Come on, throw the dice and tonight we'll win

(Live it) It's the story of our lives
([xxxx] it) It's the way we've always been
(Live it) Though the mountains may divide
([xxxx] it) We can reach the sea

I believe we can change
We can make it more than a dream
And I believe that we can change
It's not as strange as it might seem
I believe we can change
We can make it more than a dream
And I believe that we can change
It's not as strange as it might seem

Driving through the night
Just you and me
Faster than [xxxx]
Something's calling (calling, calling)
Calling us away
Do you believe
Heaven is a better place
We'll be there in a heartbeat

I believe we can change
We can make it more than a dream
And I believe that we can change
It's not as strange as it might seem
It's not as strange as it might seem

I believe we can change
We can make it more than a dream
And I believe that we can change
It's not as strange as it might seem
I believe we can change
We can make it more than a dream
And I believe that we can change
It's not as strange as it might seem

Building A Wall (Tennant/Lowe)

Protection! Prevention! Detection! Detention!
There's nowhere to defect to any more!
Protection! Prevention! Detection! Detention!
There's nowhere to defect to any more!

I'm building a wall, a fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in
I'm building a wall, a fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in

Back then on a bomb site we were spies among the ruins
Such precocious barbarians, on TV we saw cold war

Protection! Prevention! Detection! Detention!
There's nowhere to defect to any more!
Protection! Prevention! Detection! Detention!
There's nowhere to defect to any more!

I'm leaving the world, it's all wrong
Not so much what men are doing
Much more what they're not
I'm building a wall, a fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in

Jesus and The Man From Uncle
Caesar conquered Gaul
Scouting for centurions on a Roman wall
Through the woods, the trees
and further on, the sea
We lived in the shadow of the war
Sand in the sandwiches
Wasps in the tea
It was a free country
(Who do you think you are, Captain Britain?)

I'm building a wall, a fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in
I'm losing my head - well, why not?
More wood for the undertaker
means there's less for me

I'm building a wall, a fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in
I'm building a wall, a fine wall
Not so much to keep you out
More to keep me in

King Of Rome (Tennant/Lowe)

Small man, big world

Lost beyond the pale
I know you inside out
I can tell the tale

Across the sky a change of time
Last night I lost all day
I'm here and there, or anywhere
away from Mandelay

And if I were the King of Rome
I couldn't be more tragic
My fate to roam so far from home
In search of mindless magic

Oh, baby come back
Oh, baby come back to me

The desert moon, a new lagoon
We glide upon the surface
Night falls fast, no shadows cast
Arriving without purpose

Oh, baby call me
Oh, baby call me today

And if I were the King of Rome
I couldn't be more lonely
With so much scope to dream and hope
someday you'll deign to phone me

Oh, baby call me
Oh, baby call me today

I long for your inscrutable pale face
I hunger for your beautiful embrace

Pandemonium (Tennant/Lowe)

Is this a riot or are you just pleased to see me?
Why aren't we home and [xxxx]
I love you really, though I know no-one believes me
There's chaos every time we meet

Oh, now look what you've gone and done
You're creating pandemonium
That song you sing means everything
to me, I'm living in ecstasy
The stars and the sun dance to your drum
and now it's pandemonium!

You're crashing everywhere, it's like you're smashing china
Skidding on an icy road
You're major trouble since you were almost a minor
I sometimes think we'll both explode

Oh, now look what you've gone and done
You're creating pandemonium
That song you sing means everything
to me, I'm living in ecstasy
[xxxx] man, what did you do
Telling perfect strangers that I love you
The stars and the sun dance to your drum
and now it's pandemonium!

I can't make sense of anything
All I know is the party's in full swing
If we both just [xxxx] for a minute
I declare war and then you'd win it

To tell you the truth, I thought I was shockproof
Until I saw what you get up to
When you think about it, it's quite an achievement
That after all I still love you

Oh, now look what you've gone and done
You're creating pandemonium
That song you sing means everything
to me, I'm living in ecstasy
[xxxx] man, what did you do
Telling perfect strangers that I love you
The stars and the sun dance to your drum
and now it's pandemonium!

The Way It Used To Be (Tennant/Lowe/Xenomania)

I'm here, you're there
Come closer, tonight I'm lonely
Come here with me
I want it the way it used to be

What is left of love?
Tell me, who would even care?
So much time has passed
I'd still meet you anywhere
Water under bridge
Evening after day
What is left of love
here that didn't drift away?

I can remember days of sun
We knew our lives had just begun
We could do anything, we're fearless when we're young
Under the moon, address unknown
I can remember nights in Rome
I thought that love would last, a promise set in stone

I'd survive with only memories
If I could change the way I feel
But I want more than only memories
A human touch to make them real

Another day, another dream
Over the bridge an empty scene
We'd spend the weekend lost in bed and float upstream
I don't know why we moved away
Lost in the here and now we stray
into a New York zone, no promise was betrayed

I was there, [xxxx]
You elsewhere, we'd caught the city blues
Then and there I knew that I'd lost you

What is left of love?
Tell me, who will even care?
So much time has passed
I'd still meet you anywhere
Water under bridge
Evening after day
What is left of love
here that didn't drift away?

Don't give me all your love and pain
Don't sell me New York in the rain
Let's leave our promises behind
Rewind and try again

What remains in time that didn't fade away?
Sometimes I need to see
The way it used to be

Legacy (Tennant/Lowe)

That's it, the end
But you'll get over it my friend

Time will pass, governments fall
Glaciers melt, hurricanes bawl
High-speed trains take us away
North or south and back the same day

And you, you'll get over it
You do, you get over it

Seasons will change, more or less
Species vanish, art perplex
Resentment remain both east and west
Police expect an arrest

For now, you'll get over it
Somehow, you'll get over it

You'll be there, the king of other water
In despair, recoiling from the slaughter

They're raising an army in the north
From York Minster to the Firth of Forth
A pilgrimage of grace, you won't believe it
Such a human face when you receive it

And you will get over it
With time to kill, you'll get over it

There's a cruiser waiting at Scapa Flow
To take you away from all you know
The old man agonised
He really has compromised

Public opinion may not be on your side
There are those who think they've been taken for a ride
You'll get over it, I'm on your side because
You'll get over it, and what a ride it was

[someone else do the French bit]

It's dark, but you'll get over it
On your mark, you'll get over it

That Carphone Warehouse boy has been on the phone
He wants to upgrade the mobile you own
Have you realised your computer's a spy
Give him a ring, he'll explain why

The bourgeoisie will get over it
Look at me, I'm so over it
And you, you'll get over it
You do, you get over it in time
