TAKE ON ME  
(Words: Morten Harket / Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
(Music: Pål Waaktaar / Mags)
 
We're talking away
I don't know what
I'm to say I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love, OK?
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day or two
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
But I'm me
Stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)  
I'll be gone
In a day or two
Oh the things that you say
Is it life
Just to play my worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway
Take on me (Take on me)
Take me on (Take on me)  
I'll be gone
In a day or two
(Take on me - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
I'll be gone (Take on me - Take on me)
In a day or two (Take me on - Take on me)
(Take on me - Take on me)
(Take me on - Take on me)
(Take on me...)
 

 
CRY WOLF  
(Words: Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
(Music: Mags)
 
"You know
Night I left the city,
I dreamt of a wolf..."
Oooh
He came from where the winds are cold
And truth is seen through keyholes
Strange longings that'll never sleep
Oh, now he's come where no hearts beat
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
You can start, but you cannot stop
You give in, but you can't give up
You can tell all your desperate jokes
To a world that puts
Your love on hold
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry  
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now  
"I dreamt of a wolf"
"You know"
"The wolf"
The sunken-in eyes
And the pain in his cries
A shape in the dark...
Cry!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Now!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry!
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooh
Time to worry now
Cry wolf Oooooooooh
Cry wolf Oooooooooh
 

 
TOUCHY! 
(Morten Harket / Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
 
Hey
C'mon, c'mon...
Donna found us in her slow and dreamy way
I can't hear a word the waiter says
She's looking older now...
The colour of her hair
She walks into the room too pleased to find me there
Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
Me I'm touchy
And you know what to do
Me I'm touchy
Touchy, touchy you
Me I'm touchy and you know what to do
Both of us together in a room by ourselves
I sneeze to look around, but there's no escape
What can I do, what can I say
She's waiting for this moment to explain itself
Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
Me I'm touchy
And you know what to do
Me I'm touchy
Touchy, touchy you
Touching love is the best I can do
Hey, this time you've gone too far
You know how touchy we are
Hey, this time you've gone too far
C'mon, c'mon, don't you know I'm touchy?
You know how touchy we are
Donna found me in her slow and dreamy way
Now she reads me what the papers say
The way she laughs at what I do
I'm waiting for this moment to explain itself through
Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
Me I'm touchy
And you know what to do
Me I'm touchy
Touchy, touchy you
Touching love is the best I can do
Hey, this time you've gone too far
You know how touchy we are
Hey, this time you've gone too far
C'mon, c'mon, don't you know I'm touchy?
You know how touchy we are
Sha-la-la
Oh Yeah
Oh yeah... yeah...
Hey, this time you've gone too far
Don't you know I'm touchy?
You know how touchy we are
Hey, this time you've gone too far
C'mon, c'mon, don't you know I'm touchy?
You know how touchy we are
Yeah yeah... Yeah Yeah...
Yeah yeah... Yeah Yeah...
Yeah yeah... Yeah Yeah...
Me I'm touchy - Touchy you
Me I'm touchy
Know what to do
Me I'm touchy
Touchy, touchy you
Me I'm touchy
Best I can do
C'mon, c'mon
Touchy... You
Touchy
Best I can do, yeah
Touchy... You
 

 
YOU ARE THE ONE 
(Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
 
You are the one who has done me in
Guess you knew from the start
I call again, 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
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
You are the one
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 call your friends, but there's no one in
Catching you is so hard
You are the one!
You are the one!
You are the one! (You!)
You are the one! (Are)
You are the one! (The)
(One)
 

 
MANHATTAN SKYLINE 
(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
(Wave goodbye)
You know
I don't want to cry again
Don't want to cry again
I don't want to say goodbye
Don't ever want to cry again
I don't want to run away
I 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
Wave goodbye
(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
Don't ever 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
 

 
THE BLOOD THAT MOVES THE BODY 
(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 colours the ground
The blood that moves the body
The blood that moves the body
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...
The blood that moves the body 
The blood that moves the body 
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 we'll react to 
The blood that moved our bodies 
Now covers the ground... 
Now, now covers the ground 
Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
(The blood that moved the body)
 

 
EARLY MORNING
(Pål Waaktaar / Magne Furuholmen)
 
Early morning
Eight o'clock precise
I see the lonely August sun arise
Say you know
You will
Move me like you do
Out on the fields...
I'm waiting the whole night through
Early morning, early morning, yeah
Ran the whole way
Down to the tracks
Through the doorway
Then a last look back
Say you know
You will
Save me like you do
Out on the fields...
I've waited the whole night through
Early morning, early morning, yeah
Out on the fields...
I climbed all the stairways
To find the rooftop clear
Got the shotgun lying with me here
Say you know
You will
Move me like you do
Out on the fields...
You know how it feels, yeah
Early morning, early morning
Out on the fields...
Early morning
Eight o'clock precise
 

 
HUNTING HIGH AND LOW 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
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
Oh, for you I'll be hunting high and low
 

 
MOVE TO MEMPHIS (7" VERSION)  
(Pål Waaktaar / Magne Furuholmen)
 

* Eighteen months before the release of the MEMORIAL BEACH ALBUM, "Move To Memphis" was released as a single from the HEADLINES AND DEADLINES collection.

It was later reworked to be part of the MEMORIAL BEACH ALBUM.

 

 

Aaaahhhhh

Yeah

Hmmm

Yeah

Walked around no one around

You were the one who taught me better

This old town brings me down

You were the one who told me

You've got to

Move to Memphis

That's what I'll do

Gonna move to Memphis and follow you

Trace that highway

Down to your doorway

I'm gonna move to Memphis and be with you

Yeah

On the day you walked away

I was the one who said

You'd better stick around stay in town

You were the one who told me

You've got to

Move to Memphis

That's what I'll do

Chase the shadow that follows you

Take that highway

Down to your doorway

I'm gonna move to Memphis

And be with you

I'm gonna be with you

I'm gonna be with you

I'm gonna move to Memphis

I'm gonna be with you

I'm gonna be with you

I'm gonna move to Memphis

Huh

Move to Memphis

That's what I'll do

Chase the shadow that follows you

Take that highway

Down to your doorway

I'm gonna move to Memphis

To be with you

That's what I'll do

Chase the shadow that follows you

Take that highway

Down to your doorway

I'm gonna move to Memphis

Follow you

Oh-oh

That's what I'll do

Take that highway
To your doorway
I'm gonna move to Memphis to be with you
Move to Memphis
 

 
I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU  
(Pål Waaktaar)  
 
It wasn't the rain that washed away...
Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
Putting the gun down on the bedside table
I must have realised
It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
And I could have sworn it wasn't me
Yet I did it all so coldly
Almost slowly
Plain for all to see
Oh c'mon please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
How can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you
Hey...
I can still hear our screams competing
You're hissing your S's like a snake
Now in the mirror stands
Half a man
I thought no one could break
It wasn't the rain
That made no difference
Nervously drumming on: Run away
But I want the guilt to get me
Thoughts to wreck me
Preying on my mind
So, please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you
Please now
Talk to me
Tell me things I could find helpful
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
Please now
Talk to me
Oh, tell me what to do (Helpful)
For how can I stop now...
Is there nothing I can do
I have lost my way
I've been losing you  
You
I've been losing you
You
I've been losing you
(Talk to me)
(Run away... Run away...)
Run away !
 

 
THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS (7" Version) 
(John Barry / Pål Waaktaar)
 
Hey driver, where're we going
I swear my nerves are showing
Set my hopes up way too high
The living's in the way we die
Comes the morning and the headlights fade in rain
Hundred thousand people... I'm the one they frame
I've been waiting long for one of us to say
Save the darkness and let it never fade away
In the living daylights
Ahhh
The living daylights (The living daylights)
All right, hold on tighter now
It's down, down to the wire
Set your hopes up way too high
The living's in the way we die
Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand changes... everything's the same
I've been waiting long for one of us to say
Save the darkness and let it never fade away
In the living daylights
Ahhh
The living daylights (The living daylights)
Ahhh
The living daylights (The living daylights)
Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people...I'm the one they blame
In the living daylights
Ahhh
The living daylights (The living daylights)
Ahhh
The living daylights (The living daylights)
(The living daylights)
Set your hopes up way too high
(The living daylights)
The living's in the way we die
(The living daylights)
Set your hopes up way too high
(The living daylights)
The living's in the way we die
(The living daylights)
Set your hopes up way too high
(The living daylights)
The living's in the way we die
 

 
CRYING IN THE RAIN
(Howard Greenfield / Carole King)
 
I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain
If I wait for stormy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you
Only  heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain
Raindrops falling from heaven
Could never take away my misery
But since we're not together
I've prayed for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
Ohhhh
Since we're not together
I've prayed for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
 

 
I CALL YOUR NAME 
(Pål Waaktaar/ Magne Furuholmen)
 
We got married on a cold mid-winter's morning
We said our lines
Then kissed
And it was over
Those pronouncements had such weight
I guess they made us hesitate
Hesitate
When she moved her hips
And swayed in my direction
I thought we could make it yet
And beat the isolation
But in that gentle dark
Man, we tore ourselves apart
Through fire and rain
Through wilderness and pain
Through the losses, through the gains
On love's roller coaster train
I call your name
I call your name
Through fire and rain
Through wilderness and pain
Through the losses, through the gains
On love's roller coaster train
I call your name
We used to laugh
Is the fire dying, babe
It hurts to ask
Let me hold you for awhile
Through fire and rain
On love's roller coaster train
I call your name
I call your name
Oooooohhhh
Oooooohhhh
Oooooohhhh
Oooooohhhh
Owww
Oooooohhhh
Oooooohhhh
Oooooohhhh
Oooooohhhh
Ooooh
Ooooh
We got married on a cold mid-winter's morning
 

 

STAY ON THESE ROADS 
(Morten Harket / Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
 
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 shall 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 shall 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...
 

 
TRAIN OF THOUGHT 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
He likes to have the morning paper's
Crossword solved
Words go up words come down
Forwards backwards twisted round
He grabs a pile of letters from a small suitcase
Disappears into an office
It's another working day
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
He likes a bit of reading on the subway home
A distant radio's whistling tunes that nobody knows
At home a house awaits him, He unlocks the door
Thinking once there was a sea here
But there never was a door
And his thoughts are full of strangers
And his eyes too numb to see
And nothing that he knows of
And nowhere where he's been
Was never quite like this
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
And at heart
He's full of strangers
Dodging on his train of thought
Train of thought
Dodging on his train of thought
 

 
THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
To me...
I Reached inside myself
And found nothing there
To ease the pressure of
My ever worrying mind
Wo-ohhhhh
All my powers waste away
I fear the crazed and lonely looks
The mirror's sending me
These Days
Wo-ohhhhh
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Please don't ask me to defend
The shameful lowlands
Of the way I'm drifting
Gloomily through time
Wo-ohhhhh
(Touch me)
I reached inside myself today
(Give all your love)
Thinking there's got to be some way
To keep my troubles distant
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me (To me)
To me...

THE BLOOD THAT MOVES THE BODY (THE GUN MIX) 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
* This version of the song was released as the A-side of a 7" record, a 12" record and the first track of a 5"CD-Single.
 
 
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 colours the ground
The blood that moves the body
The blood that moves the body
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...
The blood that moves the body 
The blood that moves the body 
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 
(The blood that moves the body)
Covers the ground (The blood that moves the body)
Covers the ground (The blood that moves the body)
(The blood that moves the body)
(The blood that moves the body)
It's all on the ground

(The blood that moves the body)

It's all on the ground

(The blood that moves the body)

    CRYING IN THE RAIN (LIVE FOR N.R.K. T.V.)
    (Howard Greenfield / Carole King)
     
    * The version of the song was released as B-side of the "Move To Memphis" 7" single. It was also released as second track on the "Move To Memphis" 5" CD-Single.
     
    I'll never let you see
    The way my broken heart is hurting me
    I've got my pride and I know how to hide
    All the sorrow and pain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    If I wait for stormy skies
    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
    You'll never know that I still love you
    Only  heartaches remain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    Raindrops falling from heaven
    Could never take away my misery
    But since we're not together
    I've prayed for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
    Ooooh
    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    Ohhhh
    Since we're not together
    I've prayed for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
     
     
    I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU (LIVE FOR N.R.K. T.V.)

    * The version of the song was released as the second track of the "Move To Memphis" 12" single.
     
    Oh
    It wasn't the rain that washed away...
    Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
    Putting the gun down on the bedside table
    I must have realised
    It wasn't the rain
    That made no difference
    And I could have sworn it...
    It wasn't me
    Yet I did it all so coldly
    Almost slowly
    Plain for all to see
    C'mon,
    Oh c'mon please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    How can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you
    Hey...
    I can still hear our screams competing
    You're hissing your S's like a snake
    Now in the mirror stands
    Half a man
    I thought no one could break
    It wasn't the rain
    That made no difference
    Nervously drumming on: Run away
    But I want the guilt to get me
    Thoughts to wreck me
    Preying on my mind
    So, please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you
    (You)
    So, please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    Please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me,
    Oh, tell me what to do (Helpful)
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you  
    I've been losing you
    I've been losing you

    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    * The version of the song was released as the third track of the "Move To Memphis" 12" single.
     
    Half of a letter
    Tells half a story
    The way I see it
    It's half the worry
    Where I came from
    I forgot too soon...
    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Money talks
    And hey, I'm listening
    I've lived without it
    Enough to miss it
    Yeah
    Where I'm going
    I'll get there soon
    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Ooh, never gonna get there later
    You know, I wanna get there soon
    Never gonna get there later, baby
    On a desert road to home
    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Another day leaves me aching
    I try to wake up
    But something's breaking
    Here inside me
    Deep and hollow
    A sound that no other sound could follow
    I know the pain
    Before the wound
    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Ooh, never gonna get there later
    You know, I wanna get there soon
    Never gonna get there later, baby
    On a desert road to home
    Never gonna get there later
    You know, I wanna get there soon
    Never gonna get there later, baby
    On a desert road to home
    On a desert road to home
    West of the moon
    Desert...
    West of the moon
    On a desert road to home

    Walking by strangers
    Stranger than me
    We talk of the future
    Between you and me
    Sweet little darling
    Where will we be
    Sweet little darling
    Where will we be
    It's hard to conceive it
    All comes to an end
    A joke when it's funny, well...
    I laugh and pretend
    We're fools to believe it
    We're fools to try
    To slow down this seemingly, nonstop July
    We're fools to believe it
    We're fools to try
    To slow down this seemingly, nonstop July
    To slow down this seemingly, nonstop July

    Early morning
    Eight o'clock precise
    I see the lonely August sun arise
    Say you know
    You will
    Move me like you do
    Out on the fields...
    I'm waiting the whole night through
    Early morning, early morning, yeah
    Ran the whole way
    Down to the tracks
    Through the doorway
    Then a last look back
    Say you know
    You will
    Move me like you do
    Out on the fields...
    I've waited the whole night through
    Early morning, early morning, aahhh
    Out on the fields...
    I climbed all the stairways
    To find the rooftop clear
    Got the shotgun lying with me here
    Say you know
    You will
    Move me like you do
    Out on the fields...
    You know how it feels, yeah
    Early morning, early morning
    Out on the fields...
    Early morning

    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 run away
    I 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
    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

    INTRODUCTION 
    (Pål Waaktaar)

     

    * This track is in fact a short extract from a live version of "I've Been Losing You".

     

    It wasn't the rain that washed away...

    Rinsed out the colours of your eyes

    Putting the gun down on the bedside table

    I must have realised

    It wasn't the rain

    That made no difference

    And I could have sworn it wasn't...

    * The end of this version is a lot different from the album - single version (with broken glass sound from the soundtrack).
     
    We're talking away

    Shying away
    I'll be coming for your love, OK?
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    So needless to say
    I'm odds and ends
    But I'm me
    Stumbling away
    Slowly learning that life is OK.
    Say after me
    It's no better to be safe than sorry
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)  
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    Oh the things that you say
    Is it life
    Just to play my worries away
    You're all the things I've got to remember
    You're shying away
    I'll be coming for you anyway
    Take on me (Take on me)
    Take me on (Take on me)  
    I'll be gone
    In a day or two
    (Take on me - Take on me)
    (Take me on - Take on me)
    I'll be gone (Take on me - Take on me)

    Night I left the city,
    I dreamt of a wolf..."
    Oooh
    He came from where the winds are cold
    And truth is seen through keyholes
    Strange longings that'll never sleep
    Oh, now he's come where no hearts beat
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    You can start, but you cannot stop
    You give in, but you can't give up
    You can tell all your desperate jokes
    To a world that puts
    Your love on hold
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry  
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now  
    "I dreamt of a wolf"
    "You know"
    "The wolf"
    The sunken-in eyes
    And the pain in his cries
    A shape in the dark...
    Cry!
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry
    Cry wolf Oooh
    Time to worry now

    The blood that moves my body
    Now colours the ground
    The blood that moves the body
    The blood that moves the body
    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...
    The blood that moves the body 
    The blood that moves the body 
    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 we'll react to 
    The blood that moved our bodies 
    Now covers the ground... 
    Now, now covers the ground 
    Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
    Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
    Covers the ground (The blood that moved the body)
    (The blood that moved the body)

    HUNTING HIGH AND LOW (VIDEO - 7" REMIX) 
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    * The video version is the same as the single version.
     
    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
    Oh, for you I'll be hunting high and low
     

     
    I'VE BEEN LOSING YOU (LIVE FOR N.R.K. T.V.)  
    (Pål Waaktaar)  
     
    Oh
    It wasn't the rain that washed away...
    Rinsed out the colours of your eyes
    Putting the gun down on the bedside table
    I must have realised
    It wasn't the rain
    That made no difference
    And I could have sworn it...
    It wasn't me
    Yet I did it all so coldly
    Almost slowly
    Plain for all to see
    C'mon,
    Oh c'mon please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    How can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you
    Hey...
    I can still hear our screams competing
    You're hissing your S's like a snake
    Now in the mirror stands
    Half a man
    I thought no one could break
    It wasn't the rain
    That made no difference
    Nervously drumming on: Run away
    But I want the guilt to get me
    Thoughts to wreck me
    Preying on my mind
    So, please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you
    (You)
    So, please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me things I could find helpful
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    Please now
    Talk to me
    Tell me,
    Oh, tell me what to do (Helpful)
    For how can I stop now...
    Is there nothing I can do
    I have lost my way
    I've been losing you  
    I've been losing you
    I've been losing you
    (Talk to me)
    (Run away... Run away...)
     

     
    CRYING IN THE RAIN (VIDEO - ALBUM VERSION)
    (Howard Greenfield / Carole King)
     
    * The video version is the same as the album - single version.
     
    I'll never let you see
    The way my broken heart is hurting me
    I've got my pride and I know how to hide
    All the sorrow and pain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    If I wait for stormy skies
    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
    You'll never know that I still love you
    Only  heartaches remain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    Raindrops falling from heaven
    Could never take away my misery
    But since we're not together
    I've prayed for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    Ohhhh
    since we're not together
    I've prayed for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see
    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
     

     
    I CALL YOUR NAME (VIDEO - ALBUM VERSION) 
    (Pål Waaktaar/ Magne Furuholmen)
     
    * The video version is the same as the album - single version.
     
    We got married on a cold mid-winter's morning
    We said our lines
    Then kissed
    And it was over
    Those pronouncements had such weight
    I guess they made us hesitate
    Hesitate
    When she moved her hips
    And swayed in my direction
    I thought we could make it yet
    And beat the isolation
    But in that gentle dark
    Man, we tore ourselves apart
    Through fire and rain
    Through wilderness and pain
    Through the losses, through the gains
    On love's roller coaster train
    I call your name
    I call your name
    Through fire and rain
    Through wilderness and pain
    Through the losses, through the gains
    On love's roller coaster train
    I call your name
    We used to laugh
    Is the fire dying, babe
    It hurts to ask
    Let me hold you for awhile
    Through fire and rain
    On love's roller coaster train
    I call your name
    I call your name
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Owww
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Oooooohhhh
    Ooooh
    Ooooh
    We got married on a cold mid-winter's morning

     

    STAY ON THESE ROADS (VIDEO - ALBUM VERSION) 
    (Morten Harket / Mags / Pål Waaktaar)
     
    * The video version is the same as the album - single version.
     
    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 shall 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 shall 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...
     

     
    SYCAMORE LEAVES (LIVE FOR N.R.K. T.V.)  
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    Can't stop thinking 'bout it
    It fills me with unease
    Out there by the roadside someone's lying
    Under sycamore leaves
    Hey Yeah
    Wet grounds, late September
    The foliage of the trees
    I came upon this feeling that someone's buried
    Covered by sycamore leaves
    Hey Yeah
    I could never face it
    I could never see
    I could never break out
    And shake its grip on me
    Oh yeah....
    Sycamore leaves
    Yeaaaah
    Sycamore leaves
    Hey Yeah
    I could never face it
    I could never see
    I could never break out
    And shake its grip on me
    Yeah
    Can't stop thinking 'bout it
    It fills me with unease
    Out there by the roadside someone's lying
    Under sycamore leaves
    And covered by sycamore leaves
    Yeah
    Sycamore leaves
    And covered by... Well.. Sycamore leaves
    Yeah
     

     
    TRAIN OF THOUGHT (VIDEO - 7" REMIX) 
    (Pål Waaktaar)
     
    * The video version is the same as the single version.
     
    He likes to have the morning paper's
    Crossword solved
    Words go up words come down
    Forwards backwards twisted round
    He grabs a pile of letters from a small suitcase
    Disappears into an office
    It's another working day
    And his thoughts are full of strangers
    Corridors of naked lights
    And his mind once full of reason
    Now there's more than meets the eye
    Now a stranger's face he carries with him
    He likes a bit of reading on the subway home
    A distant radio's whistling tunes that nobody knows
    At home a house awaits him, He unlocks the door
    Thinking once there was a sea here
    But there never was a door
    And his thoughts are full of strangers
    And his eyes too numb to see
    And nothing that he knows of
    And nowhere where he's been
    Was never quite like this
    And his thoughts are full of strangers
    Corridors of naked lights
    And his mind once full of reason
    Now there's more than meets the eye
    Now a stranger's face he carries with him
    And at heart
    He's full of strangers
    Dodging on his train of thought
    Train of thought
    Dodging on his train of thought
     

     
    THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. (VIDEO - 7" EDIT)

    * The video version is the same as the single edit version.
     
    Touch me
    How can it be
    Believe me
    The sun always shines on T.V.
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me
    To me...
    I reached inside myself
    And found nothing there
    To ease the pressure of
    My ever worrying mind

    Wo-ohhh

    All my powers waste away
    I fear the crazed and lonely looks
    The mirror's sending me

    Wo-ohhh

    These Days
    Touch me
    How can it be
    Believe me
    The sun always shines on T.V.
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me
    Please don't ask me to defend
    The shameful lowlands
    Of the way I'm drifting
    Gloomily through time
    Wo-Ohhh
    I reached inside myself today
    Thinking there's got to be some way
    To keep my troubles distant
    Touch me
    How can it be
    Believe me
    The sun always shines on T.V.
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me
    Hold me
    Close to your heart
    Touch me
    And give all your love to me (To me)
    To me...

    Hmmm

    You were the one who told me

    You've got to

    Move to Memphis

    That's what I'll do

    Gonna move to Memphis and follow you

    Trace that highway

    Down to your doorway

    I'm gonna move to Memphis and be with you

    Yeah

    On the day you walked away

    I was the one who said

    You'd better stick around stay in town

    You were the one who told me

    You've got to

    Move to Memphis

    That's what I'll do

    Chase the shadow that follows you

    Take that highway

    Down to your doorway

    I'm gonna move to Memphis

    And be with you

    I'm gonna be with you

    I'm gonna be with you

    I'm gonna move to Memphis

    I'm gonna be with you

    I'm gonna be with you

    I'm gonna move to Memphis

    Huh

    Move to Memphis

    That's what I'll do

    Chase the shadow that follows you

    Take that highway

    Down to your doorway

    I'm gonna move to Memphis

    To be with you

    That's what I'll do

    Chase the shadow that follows you

    Take that highway

    Down to your doorway

    I'm gonna move to Memphis

    Follow you

    Oh-oh
