@SONG: DIAMOND LIFE
Sade Adu & St. John
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


He laughing with another girl
And playing with another heart
Placing high stakes
Making hearts ache
He's lovely
Seven nights and days

Diamond nights and groupie life
High in the sky
Heaven help him when he falls

Diamond life, lover boy
We move in space
We've been on our ways for maximum joy
City lights
Business nights
When we require
Street court desire for higher [...]

No place for beginners or sensitive hearts
Sentiment is left to chance
No place to be ending
But it's nowhere to start

No need to ask he's smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast to coast
LA to Chicago
Western mail
Across the north and south to [Kilago]
Love for sale

Face to face
Each lass in case
Shadow box and double cross

A license to love, insurance to hold
Melts on your memories and changes into [gold]
His eyes are like nature's
But his heart is cold

No need to ask he's smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator

Coast to coast
LA to Chicago
Western mail
Across the north and south to [Kilago]
Love for sale

Smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator

Smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator
Smooth operator

@SONG: YOUR LOVE IS KING
Sade Adu/Sade Adu & Stuart Matthewman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Your love is king
Crown you in my heart
Your love is king
[...] took part
Your kissing ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
Making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me
I'm crying out for more

Your love is king
Crown you in my heart
Your love is king
You're the ruler of my heart
Your kissing ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
I'm crying out for more
Your love is king

I'm coming up, I'm coming
You're making me dance, inside

Your love is king
Crown you in my heart
Your love is king
[...] took part
Your kissing ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me
I'm crying out for more

Touching the very part of me
Making my soul sing
I'm crying out for more
Your love is king

This is no lying thing
This is no sad and sorry dream
This is no lying thing
Your love, your love is real...

@SONG: HANG ON TO YOUR LOVE
Sade Adu/Sade Adu & Stuart Matthewman
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


In Heavens name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love
In Heavens name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love

It takes time if you're down on love
It's so easy to walk down on love
Take you time if the going gets tough
It's so precious

So if you want it to get stronger you'd better not let go
You gotta hold on longer if you want you love to grow
Gotta stick together, hand in glove
Growing tight, don't fight
Hang on to your love

In Heavens name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love
In Heavens name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love

Be brave when the Johnny is rough
It's not easy when you're in love
Don't be ashamed when the going gets tough
It's not easy --- don't give up

If want it to get stronger you'd better not let go
You gotta hold on longer if you want you love to grow
Gotta stick together, hand in glove
Growing tight, don't fight
Hang on to your love

In Heavens name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love
In Heavens name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love

So if want it to get stronger you'd better not let go
You gotta hold on longer if you want you love to grow
Gotta stick together, hand in glove
Growing tight, don't fight
Hang on to your love

In Heavens name why are you walking away?
Hang on to your love
In Heavens name why do you play these games?
Hang on to your love

When you find a love
Don't let it walk away
Refind your love, you got to make it stay
Don't let it walk away
Refind your love, you got to make it stay

You've got to hang on to your love
You've got to hang on to your love
Why are you walking away?
Why do you play these games?

@SONG: FRANKIE'S FIRST AFFAIR
Sade Adu/Sade Adu & Stuart Matthewman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Frankie, didn't I tell you
You got the world in the palm of your hand?
Frankie, didn't I tell you
They're running at your command?

You know the chains as if they're your invention
It was your intension, Frankie
To fall in the trap you made

It's a crying shame
You left a trail of destruction
Heartbreaker, you know now
They really did care cause it's your first affair

Frankie, didn't I tell you
The lion would come in for a kill?
Frankie, didn't I say
It'd power over your sweet skill?

So where's the laughter
You spat right in their faces?
Didn't I tell you Frankie
That you might run out of aces?

It's a crying shame
You blew the wind again
Heartbreaker, this time
It's your first affair

Frankie's, Frankie's first affair
It's you time to cry, heartbreaker
Frankie's, Frankie's first affair
It's you time to cry

It's a crying shame
Heartbreaker, you know now
They really did care cause it's your first affair

Frankie's, Frankie's first affair
Frankie's, Frankie's first affair
It's you turn to cry
It's you turn to cry
It's you turn to cry
It's you turn to cry

Don't you realise they really did care
The part is over, now you discover
It's your turn to cry
And don't you realise
It's the toughest game
The part is over
It's your turn to cry

@SONG: WHEN AM I GOING TO MAKE A LIVING
Sade Adu/Sade Adu & Stuart Matthewman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


When am I gonna make a living?
It's gonna take a while before I give in
See the people fuzzing and stealing?
[..........]

Gotta look up and tell yourself there's no end to what you can do
They'll waste your body and soul if you allow them to
This is time to start believing in yourself
Dump the blame on no-one else

When am I gonna make a living?
It's gonna take a while before I give in
See the people fuzzing and stealing?
Too many lies, no-one is achiveing

Haven't I told you before
We're hungry for a life we can afford?
There's no end to what you can do
If you give yourself a chance to prove

We're hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in

There's no end to what you can do
They'll waste your body and soul if you allow them to
Start believing in yourself
Dump the blame on no-one else

When am I gonna make a living?
It's gonna take a while before I give in
I'm sick and tired of scratching a living
I'm hungry but I'm not gonna give in

We're hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we won't give in
Hungry but we're gonna win

@SONG: CHERRY PIE
Sade Adu/Sade Adu, Andrew Hale & Stuart Matthewman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're then one who broke my heart
Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're then one who broke my heart

When I met you boy, you were as sweet as cherry pie
But smiling, ah, you were as wild as Friday night
I should have know how ever hard you try
Change'd come and strangle it
It was bound to die

You were sweet as cherry pie, wild as Friday night
Sweet as cherry pie, wild as Friday night

Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're the one who broke my heart in two
Gotta find out what I meant to you, oh boy

Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're the one who broke my heart in two
Where were you just when I needed you?

You gave me your soul for at least a day
Listen boy, there was a time when I wanted you to stay
Your moment cost, it's you who's gonna pay
I'm stronger now, I loved you then
I'll ask you anyway

You were sweet as cherry pie, wild as Friday night
Sweet as cherry pie, wild as Friday night

Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're the one who broke my heart in two
Where were you just when I needed you, boy?
Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're the one who broke my heart in two
I needed you
You teased me
You broke my heart
You broke my heart

You were the only one
You were the only one
You're the son of a gun
You were the only one
You were the only one
You broke my heart

Sweet as cherry pie
Sweet as cherry pie
Gotta find out what I meant to you
You're the one who broke my heart in two
Gotta find out what I meant to you, oh boy
Gotta find out what I meant to you
Where were you just when I needed you?
Gotta find out what I meant to you, boy

Where were you just when I needed you?
You were the only one
You were the only one
Son of a gun
You were the only one
I am feeling strong, I loved you then
So I'll ask you anyway

Gotta find out what I meant to you
you broke my heart
Gotta find out,
Gotta find out what I meant to you
you teased me
You were the only one
You were the only one
Son of a gun
You were the only one
You were the only one

@SONG: SALLY
Sade Adu/Sade Adu & Stuart Matthewman
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sally,
You opened out your arms to all those young men
And girl,
You had room for every one of them

You're only girl
Who ... and ...
Sure as Hell the only one who cares

So put your hands together for Sally
She saved all those young men
So put your hands together for Sally
She the one who cares for them

She's doing our dirty work
She's the only one who cares
Doing our dirty work
Thirsty world, one angry day in New York

Take a look at Dave
He was one seventeen
Zoot suit and shiny shoes
He ran around town and threw his [meth elated] laughter
Most of his memories drowned
But he remembers what his mother used to shout
She used to shout
"One day, surely son, the street are gonna tire you out"

So put your hands together for Sally
She the one who cares for him
Put your hands together for Sally
He was there when his luck was running thin

She's doing our dirty work
She's the only one who cares
Doing our dirty work
Thirsty world, one angry day in New York

Tommy has a wife and family
But the needle came to dream
love and ... all times
Thank God for Sally
She was there through the misery
Just a place to lay his head
Just about better off than dead

She's doing our dirty work
She's the only one who cares
Doing our dirty work
Thirsty world, one angry day



Vince came up from the country
Couldn't even find himself a room
Thinking about his babies
They're further away than the moon
With no money but his [fried] in his pocked
There's really no way he can go home
There's a picture of his woman in his locket
Most of all he doesn't want to be alone

So put your hands together for Sally
She the one who cares for him
Put your hands together for Sally
He was there when his luck was running thin

She's doing our dirty work
She's the only one who cares
Doing our dirty work
Thirsty world, one angry day in New York

@SONG: WHY CAN'T WE BE TOGETHER
Timmy Thomas
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Why can't we live together?

Tell me why, tell me why
Why can't we live together?

Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together?

No more war, no more war, no more war --- just a little peace
No more war, no more war --- all we want
Is a peace in this world

Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together?

No matter no matter what colour
You're still my brother
I said no matter, no matter what colour
You're still my brother

Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together?

Everybody wants to live
Everybody's got to be together
Everybody wants to live
Everybody's going to be together
Everybody's got to be together
Everybody wants to be together

I said no matter, no matter what colour
You're still my brother
I said no matter, no matter what colour
You're still my brother

Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together?
