Rough city

Livin’ in this town for more than twenty seven years
Don’t know where I’m bound, but I’ll learn fo find my way
I’ve checked it out, I’ve seen it all, there ‘s ringin’ in my ears
Don’t know when I’ll go, but I’ll get out of here one day

Everybody around me
Do you hear me when I’m sayin’
Their life is a drag, it ‘s all looking sad to me
Everybody around me
Can you hear me when I ‘m cryin’
They all look alike, they don’t feel alive to me

What happened to the faithful man
What happened to the faithful man
What happened, what happened
Hey !
Rough city you drove him astray

Working like a dog as if it would be the solution
You don’t make a dime, you sure don’t find no harmony
Waiting all your time for what only an illusion
I’m changing my plans, I need nobody’s company

Lyrics

1. Rough city
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas - L. O)  

Memories

You ‘ve gone made the big time
People talking about you
I’ve read in the headlines
Newspapers talking about you
You were not yet a star
When you left me on my own
You hadn’t gone far
Since you left me alone

Everywhere that I turn to
On the walls only you
I seem to be followed
By giant posters of you
But not even your picture
When you left me on my own
You left me no picture
When you left me alone

I try to shake off that old love story
But everywhere a memory follows me
Let me be, I wanna be free

Everywhere all around me
Brings back those memories
Everywhere all around me
The past I don’t wanna see
The story of my life
When you left me on my own
The story of my life
When you left me alone

I try to shake off that old love story
But everywhere a memory follows me
Let me be, I wanna be free

 
Lyrics

2. Memories
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

Relax

What ‘s the matter doctor
I’m always in a hurry
What ‘s the matter doctor
Do you thing I’m crazy ?
What ‘s the matter doctor
People tell me I may be
What ‘s the matter doctor
Is there hope to save me ?

I don’t understand
What ‘s happened to me
Everyday I ‘m under stress
Think I really could be relaxed
Floating out on emptiness

What ‘s the matter doctor
I’m always in a hurry
What ‘s the matter doctor
Please tell me the truth
What ‘s the matter doctor
Please give me the cure
What ‘s the matter doctor
Don’t say it ‘s no use !

I don’t understand
What ‘s happened to me
Everyday I’m under stress
Think I really could be relaxed
Floating out on emptiness

 
Lyrics

3. Relax
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

Over The Hill

I can see some men walking in town
And I can hear them talking just like fools
And they just walk in their dreams
And they just go with the stream
But they’d better look at what ‘s real
So they will see over the hill
And they can bring to their sides
So many light in the night
And they can bring to their sides
So many joys in their life
I can see some kids running in town
And they just keep on playing the game
And they just walk in their dreams
And they just go with the stream
But they ‘D better look at what ‘s real
So they will see over the hill
And they can bring to their sides
So many lights in the night
And they can bring to their sides
So many joys in their life
I can see some people made like men
And they wonder why they all look the same

 
Lyrics

4. Over the hill
(M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - A. Letecheur - JP. Devaux - R. De Greef)  

After the Crop

The wind had bent the crop when the mountebanks
came back from the hop
Lonely on the road, the drivers of the night followed the light
and took the path to their next plunder or fight
The rain had beaten down the corn
When the mountebanks came back in the morn
Lonely on the road, the drivers of the night followed the light
and took the path to their next plunder or fight

After a hard day far from the land of the sky
The cardboard clouds returned home without a cry
The lights went out one by one
But this day was not like another one
The night woke up like a badly washed bitch
And the voice of the wind was going off pitch
I was always on the rack !
Like a wave that the beach throw back
‘Cause she thinks she ‘s looking too ugly
Or maybe cause she ‘s looking too lovely
Like a star lost in the sky
I had just one friend, my cry
And I heard people play and I heard people say:
“This year the crop will not be good
However we have worked as much as we could”

Roaming under mechanical moonbeams I was going down in my dreams
Without a look and well oiled
I was alone with my world
Like the blind of the electric flock
But I knew that I would give them a shock
My saturated heart cried his pain
But what was rolling in my brain ?

I tried to forget what was said in the books
All their stories of crops and crooks
But somehow I can not talk
I still had this electronic walk
Like the blind sheep of the electronic flock
But I knew that I would give them a shock
My saturated heart cried out his pain
And my revolt broke out off my brain !

They were looking at me with big eyes of ice
But for me it was so nice
I was free ! I was me !
No more what they want me to be
Like the blind sheep of the electricflock
But I knew that I would give them a shock
And the rain did not beatdown the corn
It had been cut this morn

 
Lyrics

Playboy

Who is this man just in front of me?
He will be mine, he will be mine
This man is just my kind of man
He is my kind, he is my kind
Who is this man just in front of me?
He will be mine, he will be mine
I’m gonna tell him he is so fine
He is so fine, he is so fine
C’mon babe don’t hesitate
I got no time, Igot no time
Hey girl don’t get excited,
Do you wanna drink something with me?

Hey girl don’t get excited, sit down,
Be cool and let’s take it easy!

Don’t talk about anything I feel ready
You will be mine, you will be mine
Don’t move that way you’re like fire
I burn inside, I burn inside
Hey girl don’t get excited, come on,
Relax and sit down by me
Hey girl don’t get excited, sit down,
Be cool and talk all this through!

You don’t care what I’m talking about
Takin’it easy
No you don’t care not at all
Takin’it easy
No you don’t care not at all
Takin’it easy
No you don’t care not at all
Takin’it easy
I don’t like when you laugh at me!

6. Playboy
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

Champagne in Amesterdam

Driving all night down the highwayStoppin’ in Amesterdam
Wet nights, bright lights in our eyes
Get a drink in a topless bar
The girls look like mannequeens
No life, no fun in their lives

Champagne in Amsterdam
Spend our money and time
No no honey you won’t be mine
No no babe I don’t wanna fly

Neon girl you window-dress the wall
Are you supposed to entertain the bar ?
You’ll do mean things for money
Don’t wanna know who you really are
Forget your troubles, forget your pain
With a no name, no heart short-time honey

Champagne in Amsterdam
Spend our money and time
No no honey you won’t be mine
No no babe I don’t wanna fly

 
Lyrics

7. Champagne in Amsterdam
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

Lay down

Let me tell you, tell you something
I work everyday, I share all my nights
I’m gonna tell you, tell you something
I’ve thought that true love would change my life
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s no love left in my eyes
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s only one thing on my mind

Lay down

Let me tell you, tell you something
I care ’bout your dreams, but I can’t help mine
It ‘s hard to leave, leave you alone
Love me one more time, goodbye
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s no love left in my eyes
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s only one thing on my mind

 
Lyrics

8. Lay down
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas - L. O)  

Turn Off

Waking up the morning
Get up, come down to breakfast
Still there on the morning show
Sounds that have no meaning, makes no sense

Coming home in the evening
After a useless, a stupid schoolday
Turn on the tv
Pictures flicker, nothing there for me

Everyday in and long day out
At home, at school, atcetera
I hear all around me
The same blah-blah which drives me crazy

Today I turn the radio off
Today I turn the tv off
Today I’m gonna turn to rock and roll

Just another grey morning
Instant coffee and shitty cornflakes
Turn on the radio
Plastic masticated emptiness

Trakking back in the evening
Feels like they’re chatting my whole life away
Reach out for that tv
Picture flicker, sends me off to sleep

Today I turn the radio off
Today I turn the tv off
Today I’m gonna turn to rock and roll

 
Lyrics

9. Turn off
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

Fly

Fly, I wanna fly
It’s been a long long time
I’m waiting for you at night
Fly, I wanna fly
It’s been a long long time
I’m burning for you at night
High, I wanna get high
You know babe
We’re gonna make it higher tonight

Though I know you’ll go your own way
Tomorrow is another day
Forget it babe gimme a good time

Fly, I wanna fly
It’s been a long long time
I’ve waited for this magical night
Now you want it now
And I wanna see you cry
Wanna feel you flying tonight

Though I know you’ll go your own way
Tomorrow is another day
Forget it babe gimme a good time

Fight, don’t wanna fight
I only want you to be my lover,
My love tonight
Fly, I know we’ll fly
It’s been a long long time
I’ve waited for you at night
Though I know you’ll go your own way
Tomorrow is another day
Forget it babe gimme a good time
