#9 DREAM

(Music/Lyrics: John Lennon)

 

* This song was covered by A-ha for the Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur charity album.

 

 

So long ago

Was it in a dream?

Was it just a dream?

Ooooh... I know, yes I know

It seemed so very real

Seemed so real to me

Took a walk down the street

Through the heat whispered trees

I thought I could hear

Hear

Hear

Hear

Somebody calls out my name

Two spirits dancing so strange

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

Dream, dream away

Magic in the air

Was magic in the air?

I believe, yes I believe

More I cannot say

What more can I say?

On a river of sound.

Through the mirror go round

Round

I thought I could feel

Feel

Feel

Feel

Music touching my soul.

Something warm, sudden cold.

The spirit dance was unfolding...

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

#9 Dream

(Aah, bowakawa, pousse pousse)

 


 

A QUESTION OF LUST

(Music/Lyrics: Martin Lee Gore)

 

* This Depeche Mode song was covered by A-ha during a B.B.C.2 live session in July 2009

 

Fragile

Like a baby in your arms

Be gentle with me

I'd never willingly

Do you harm

Apologies

Are all you seem to get from me

But just like a child

You make me smile

When you care for me

And you know...

It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together

Independence

Is still important for us though

(we realize) * This "back-ground vocal" part from the original song is not performed in the a-ha 2009 version.

It's easy to make

The stupid mistake

Of letting go

(do you know what I mean) * This "back-ground vocal" part from the original song is not performed in the a-ha 2009 version.

My weaknesses

You know each and every one

(it frightens me) * This "back-ground vocal" part from the original song is not performed in the a-ha 2009 version.

But I need to drink
More than you seem to think

Before I'm anyone's

And you know...

It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together

It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together

Kiss me goodbye

When I'm on my own

But you know that I'd

Rather be home

* This part from the original song is not performed in the a-ha 2009 version.

Keep us together

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together

It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together

 


 

SAY HELLO, WAVE GOODBYE

(Music/Lyrics: Marc Almond / David Ball)

 

* Mark Almond song was covered by A-ha during a B.B.C. Radio 2 live session on September 28th 2010.

 

Standin' in the door of the Pink Flamingo cryin' in the rain,
It was a kind of so-so love and I'm gonna make sure it never happens again,
You and I, it had to be the standing joke of the year,
You were a sleep around, a lost and found and not for me I fear.
I tried to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt and me in a suit,
You're used to wearing less, and now your life's a mess, so insecure you seem,
I put up with all the scenes and this is one scene that's going to be played my way
Take your hands off me,
I don't belong to you, you see,
Take a look at my face, for the last time,
I never knew you, you never knew me,
Say hello goodbye.
Under the deep red light I can see the make-up slidin' down,
Hey little girl you will always make up so take off that unbecoming frown,
What about me, well I'll find someone that's not goin' cheap in the sales,
A nice little housewife who'll give me a steady life and won't keep going off the rails,
Take your hands off me,
I don't belong to you, you see,
Take a look at my face, for the last time,
I never knew you, you never knew me,
Say hello goodbye.
Say hello, wave goodbye.
Say hello and wave goodbye.

Say hello, wave goodbye.

Say hello then wave goodbye.
