THE BLOOD THAT MOVES THE BODY (Live In South America) 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
It's the way we feel
Tonight
As if it's all unreal
All right
My love, won't you come back to
Our love, you know I'll react to
The blood that moves my body
Now covers the ground
The blood that moves the body
The blood that moves the body
There's nowhere to go
Tonight
Lend some warmth to our cold
And lonely lives
Red stains on 'Eyes Of A Blue Dog'
My pains fade as the interiors fog
The blood that moves my body
Now covers the ground
Not long ago
It hurt us so
A tremble through our lives
The love and care...
The way we were
Now, lost its way at nights
It's the way we feel
Tonight
Yeah
My body... my body... my body... (Yeah)
Not long ago 
It hurt us so 
A tremble through our lives
The love and care...
The way we were
Now, lost its way at nights
It's the way we feel
Tonight
Lend some warmth to our cold 
And lonely lives
My love, won't you come back to
Our love, you know I'll react to
The blood that moved our bodies
Now covers the ground... 
Now, now covers the ground
Covers the ground
Covers the ground
Hey
Covers the ground
Hey
Covers the ground

    MANHATTAN SKYLINE (Live In South America) 
    (Words: Pål Waaktaar)
    (Music: Mags / Pål Waaktaar)  
     
    We sit and watch umbrellas fly
    I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
    I hear myself say,
    "My boat's leaving now"
    So we shake hands and cry
    Now I must wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    You know
    I don't want to cry again
    Don't want to cry again
    I don't want to say goodbye
    I don't want to cry again
    I don't want to race this pain
    Don't want to race this pain
    I'll never see your face again
    Oh but how
    How can you say
    That I didn't try...
    You see things in the depths of my eyes
    That my love's run dry
    No...
    I leave to their goodbyes
    I've come to depend on the look in their eyes
    My blood's sweet for pain
    The wind and the rain bring back words of a song
    And they say wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Wave goodbye
    Saying wave goodbye
    But you know
    I don't want to fall again
    I don't want to know this pain
    I don't want another friend
    I don't want to try again
    I don't want to see you hurt
    Don't let me see you hurt
    I don't want to cry again
    I'll never see your face again
    How can you say
    That I didn't try
    You know I did
    You see things in the depths of my eyes
    That my love's run dry
    I don't want to cry again
    So I read to myself
    A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons
    On the front page
    A black and white picture of
    Manhattan Skyline
     

     
    YOU ARE THE ONE (Live In South America) 
    (Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
     
    You are the one who has done me in
    Catching you was so hard
    I call your friends, but there's no one in
    Don't know where, with whom you've been
    But I do
    Love you
    Anyway you want me to
    Yah...
    Say... You are the one... now the state I'm in!
    Catching you was so hard
    I fought for you, did you let me win!?
    You don't even care, you don't care
    Where I've been
    But I do
    Love you
    Anyway you want me to
    Yeah
    Alright now!
    I’ve done all I can do
    All the letters... I've sent through
    Put my life in the palms of your hands
    Maybe now you can see
    That it's got to be me
    But if you leave me
    I'll understand, yeah
    If you leave me, I'll understand
    You are the one who has done me in
    Guess you knew from the start
    I fought for you, did you let me win!?
    Catching you was so hard
    You are the one!
    Yeah-hey
    You are the one!
    Ooooo-ooooo hey-hey
    You are the one!
    You are the one!
    Yeah-hey
    You are the one!
    Heyyyyyyyyyy
     

     
    STAY ON THESE ROADS (Live In South America) 
    (Morten Harket / Magne Furuholmen / Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    The cold has a voice
    It talks to me
    Stillborn, by choice
    And it airs no need
    To hold
    Old man feels the cold...
    Oh baby don't
    'cause I've been told
    Stay on these roads
    We shall meet, I know
    Stay on... my love
    We will meet, I know
    I know
    Where joy should reign
    These skies restrain
    ‘Shadow your love...'
    The voice trails off again
    The voice trails off again
    Old man feels the cold
    Oh baby don't
    'cause I've been told
    Stay on these roads
    We shall meet, I know
    Stay on... my love
    You feel so weak, be strong
    Stay on, stay on
    We will meet, I know
    I know, my love, I know
    Feel the cold
    Winter's gone and I'm at home
    Stay on these roads
    We shall meet, I know
    Stay on... my love
    We will meet, I know
    So stay on...
    I know
    Stay my love... Stay on...
    We will meet, I know
    I know...
    I know...

    (Spoken sentences)

    Yeah

     


     
    HUNTING HIGH AND LOW (Live In South America) 
    (Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
     
    * The introduction of the song is a live instrumental acoustic version of "Memorial Beach".
     
    Here I am
    And within the reach of my hands
    She's sound asleep and she's sweeter now
    Than the wildest dream could have seen her
    And I watch her slipping away
    Though I know I'll be hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
    Hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to lengths I'll go
    To find her again
    Upon this my dreams are depending
    Through the dark
    I sense the pounding of her heart
    Next to mine
    She's the sweetest love I could find
    So I guess I'll be hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
    High and low
    High
    Do you know what it means to love you
    I'm hunting high and low
    And now she's telling me she's got to go away
    I'll always be hunting high and low
    Only for you (And now she's telling me)
    Watch me tearing myself to pieces
    Hunting high and low
    High
    There's no end to the lengths I'll go to
    Yeahhh, for you I'll be hunting high and low

    Hunting high and low

    High

    (There's no end to lengths I'll go)

    (Hunting high and low)

    (High)

    (There's no end to lengths I'll go)

    (Hunting high and low)

    (High)

    Do you know what it means to love you

    Yeahhhhh

    I'll always be hunting high and low

    (Words spoken)
