You've a pretty smile my love. It can take you anywhere, anywhere you want to go my love. Go with me love. You've a pretty smile my love, smile my love, smile my love. What are you doing here my pretty one? What are these clothes you're putting on? I fear the battle you're preparing for will bring the devil to your door. See if I didn't warn you. Some girls only speak lies Some girls got Jezebel eyes Some girls know how to fake But some girls wander by mistake. Some girls….. Oh….Uh-oh…

I Wish 03:50
I can’t keep my eyes off ‘a you and I can’t help myself, or what I do I just gotta watch the way you move And I just gotta touch, would ya like me to. I,I,I,I,I,I,I……. Wish all the other songs had been for you And I wish that the sky was always blue And that our hearts would never be that colour too I wish, I wish Now I surrender, at last I surrender I never felt this good before standing at an open door Now I surrender, at last I surrender I never felt this safe before with my head in a blender I,I,I,I,I,I,I……. Wish all the other songs had been for you And I wish that the sky was always blue And that our hearts would never be that colour too I wish And I wish all the other times had been with you And I wish that my wishes would all come true For you and I and me and you I wish, I wish I,I,I,I,I,I,I……. Wish all the other songs had been for you And I wish that the sky was always blue And that our hearts would never be that colour too I wish And I wish all the other times had been with you And I wish all the songs I’ve sung were sung for you If I’d known you then I would have wanted to I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish.

Ancient Love 04:53
I have only known you for a little while now And as you keep reminding me it's far too soon to tell Yet girl it somehow seems that you've always been with me And I've reason to believe that we have an ancient love Instinctively we know our lines in this medieval play Pity how our worried minds stumble in the way You and me babe got an ancient love You and me babe, we got ourselves an ancient love I can only hold you for a moment now You skip away on contradiction confusing me somehow One foot in the future and one foot in the past Make the best of both worlds now your compromise can't last I wonder will you be there in my darkest hour You're making me no promises so it's comforting to know You and me babe got an ancient love You and me babe got ourselves an ancient love You and me babe got an ancient love You and me babe, we got ourselves an ancient love I promise you a future far better than the past I promise you devotion and a love that's gonna last I could choose my dark side too but it has a bitter end I'd rather lead you to the light. Let's kiss and make amends. Darling let me love you Let me show you how Don't keep your door on its safety chain when you know you wanna open it now. Yeah. You and me babe got an ancient love You and me babe got ourselves an ancient love You and me babe got an ancient love You and me babe, we got ourselves an ancient love

Melody 03:20
I'm always running I'm always hiding But Melody finds me again Of all her victims she loves me most 'cos Melody is my ghost She is my past alive in my future Melody please let me go This is no normal spiritual haunting Melody lives in my head She's getting' older She's getting wiser Won't rest until I'm dead And in the night she sinks her claws deeper Melody, Melody, no She got the key She got just what it takes to play games in my head She play me pictures of my mistakes One by one in my head I'm going down for the very last time under her vicious tread She always dodges every plan that I lay To leave Melody dead Melody dead, Melody's dead Of course, I said 'Aha', cos she's my ghost She is the face of all my old lovers Merged into one dreadful mask She is the knife of a thousand betrayals Dripping with blood from its shaft She is the tears on the face of a baby Melody, Melody, no I'm gonna leave her here in a bottle Lured with a candle and ring I'm gonna walk on into the future Free of her venomous sting This exorcism is the final solution Melody, Melody, go She got the key She got just what it takes to play games in my head She play me pictures of my mistakes One by one in my head I'm going down for the very last time under her vicious tread She always dodges every plan that I lay To leave Melody dead Melody dead, Melody's dead Of course, I said 'Aha', cos she's my ghost
