Live At The Brixton Academy
The whole dialogue from the Cd

The Dark/Back To The Light

Far, far from the light
Hear the night creatures call
With a cold breath they howl
All the hollow hours they're calling you
I'll be there
No matter where you're going to
In the dark I care
Holding on, hoping on
It's still the same old me inside

Back to the light
Back to the streets
That are paved with gold
Back to the light
Back to the land
Where the sunshine heals my soul

Deep, deep in the night
When the world fills with tears
And the wind blows, colder and colder it grows
And the fire dims with the same old fears
I'll be there
No matter where you're going to
In the dark I care
No matter when, I'll still be there
When you make it to the other side
Ooh, and I'm going back

Back to the light
Back to the streets
That are paved with gold, yeah, yeah
Back to the light
Going back to the land
Where the sunshine heals my soul, yeah, yeah

On and on
Searching for a clearer view
Winning and losing an inner war
Wonder what we do it for
Though the road seems never ending
Hold on to the hope I'm sending through
Yeah

No, no matter where you're going to
In the dark I care
Holding on - believe it
We'll be walking in the light
'Cos they'll be no place left to hide

Back to the light
Back to the streets
That are paved with gold, yeah, yeah, come with me
Back to the light
Back to the land
Where sunshine heals my soul
Let me hear you babes
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Back to the light, oooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Back to the light

Driven By You

We touch and you're afraid of me and
We burn and now I'm at your feet
High speed, but you know you're in safe hands
In the dark we make a brighter light
From one spark to the horizon wide
We trust, and together we tame the land

You'd be forgiven if you think you're dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true
Everything I do is driven by you

Well it's tough to make a journey through
The right stuff is dead ahead of you and me
And you know we've still got time
Ooh, hold on tight to the driving wheel
This ride is really out of line
Raw deal, but there's no other worth a dime

You know I love you but you drive me crazy
'Cos you're saying all the things I'm gonna say to you
Everything I do is driven by you

Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do is driven by you

Inner children lost their way
Now they know the price you pay
I'm holding onto life with you
'Cos life without you just won't do

Driven by you
Driven by you
Driven by you

Ooh, you know we're never gonna know who's dreaming
But we're working night and day to make a dream come true
Everything we do is driven by you
Everything we do
Everything we do (don't you know the little thing)
Everything we do
Ooh, everything we do, yeah
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do
Everything we do, yeah
Is driven by
Driven by
Driven by you

Tie Your Mother Down

Ooh, get your party gown
Get your pigtail down
Get your heart beating, baby
I got my timing right
I've got my act all tight
It's gotta be tonight my little schoolbabe
Mamma says you don't
Your daddy says you don't
I'm boiling up inside
No way I'm gonna lose out this time

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Lock your daddy out of doors
I don't need him nosing around
Tie your mother down, sing it to me
Tie your mother down
All your love tonight

Go get out of my house
You're such a dirty louse
That's all I ever get from your
Family ties, in fact I never heard
A single little civil word from those guys
But I don't give a light
Gonna make out all right
Got a sweetheart hand
To put a stop to all that
Sniping and grousing all night

Tie your mother down, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tie your mother down
Your daddy out of doors, ??????
Tie your mother down, oohh, baby
Tie your mother down
Ain't no friend of mine

Your mummy and your daddy gonna
Plague me till I die
They can't understand it
I'm just a peace loving guy

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Get that big, big, big, big, big, big daddy out of doors
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Give me all your love tonight

All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight
All your love tonight

All your love tonight

Love Token

Look what happens babe
This is after the moves and tunes

Mama's in love and papa's in love
It's such a shame they don't love each other

Papa's in a jam, mama's throwing pans
The game's up, it's time to run for cover
Ooh, yeah

Oh, everybody's crying but they can't stop hoping
Everybody's looking for the door that's open
Mama's making heat to keep the old fire smoking
Papa's hanging on to his old love token
Yes that's right

You got love but you ain't got style
You got your freedom but in a while
You're lost children but you know for sure
You gotta find out who your love is for

Mama
I said mama

Headlong/Love Token (Reprise)

I was rushing headlong you've got a new goal
I was rushing headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
But there ain't no stopping there's nothing you can do about it

One, two, three, four
Headlong
Headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
Ain't no stopping there's nothing
You can do about it, yeah

Hey, you used to be a man with a stick in his hand
Hoop, diddy, diddy, hoop, diddy, do
She used to be a woman with a hotdog stand
Hoop, diddy, diddy, wow, hoop, diddy, do
Now you've got soup in the laundry bag
Now you've got strings, you're gonna lose your rag
You're getting in a fight then it ain't so groovy
When you're screaming in the night let me out of this cheap B movie

Headlong, ooh down the highway
Headlong, ooh out of control
And you think you're so strong
There ain't no stopping and you can't stop rocking
There's nothing you can, nothing you can, nothing you can do about it

When a red hot man meets a white hot lady
Hoop, diddy, diddy, hoop, diddy, do
Soon the fire starts a raging gets them more than half crazy
Hoop, diddy, diddy, hoop, diddy, do
Now you've got shit everywhere you turn
You can't stop walking 'cos your feet got burned
It ain't no time to figure wrong from right
'Cos reason's out the window
Better hold on tight

Headlong, oooh, down the highway
Headlong out of control
And you think you're so strong
There ain't no stopping
There's nothing you, nothing you
Nothing you can do about it at all

Headlong
Headlong, oooh, out of control
So strong
There's nothing, nothing, nothing you can do about it
(Oooh, oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh)

I don't wanna leave you mama
But I'm gonna have to babe
Oooohhh

Yeah

Love Of My Life

Sometimes I wonder whether I should sing this song or not. The reason being, the reason being that I can't sing it as well as it's creator. But then again, I think you're gonna help me, OK?. We'll do this one for Freddie, alright?

Love of my life - you've hurt me
You've broken my heart and now you leave me
Love of my life, can't you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me, because you don't know
What it means to me
Perfect

Love of my life - don't leave me
You've stolen my heart and now desert me
Love of my life, can't you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don't take it away from me, because you don't know
What it means to me

You will remember
When this is blown over
And everything's all by the way
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you - I still love you
Ooooohhhh

Oooh, hurry back, hurry back
Don't take it away from me
Because you don't know what it means to me
Love of my life
Love of my life
Oooh, yeah

'39/Let Your Heart Rule Your Head

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

If you've got time stay and listen to my story
Just a moment of your life is all I need
Don't say we should be parted
'Cos we only just got started
Let your heart rule your head tonight

There's a full moon shining on the water
There's a warm breeze blowing off the sea
When my pulse starts a racing
I know life is for the tasting
Let your heart rule your head tonight
Everybody

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
Oooh, when your whole world is sinking
Come to my way of thinking
Let your heart rule your head tonight

It's been so long since I put my arms around you
And I don't know if it's real or it's a dream
But don't stop to think about it - shout it
Just can't live without it
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Ooh, let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinking
Come to my way of thinking
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Oooh, you're staring at my face as though I'm crazy
When I tell you that I need you every day
Can't you see that I love you pretty baby
And old time don't ever stop ticking away, well

Your mama don't mind
And your papa don't mind
Ooh, and your sister don't mind
If you're thinking all the time
We can work it out right
When I'm holding you tight
Well I think it's alright
'Cos it ain't no crime

Don't let the moment slip away, hey
Don't think about - do it (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Well I know that we're in a time of changes
And in love there is danger everywhere
But consider every portion
When you've taken your precautions
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart (let your heart)
Let your heart, let your heart, let your heart, let your heart

Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head
Let your heart rule your head tonight
When your whole world is sinking
Come to my way of thinking
Let your heart rule your head tonight

Oooh, let your heart rule your head tonight

Too Much Love Will Kill You

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone for much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'Cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you - every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I have to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you - every time

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life
You'd sell your soul
But here it comes again

Too much love will kill you
In the end
In the end

Since You've Been Gone

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
I get the same old dreams
Same time every night
Fall to the ground and I wake up
So I get out of bed
Put on my shoes and in my head
Thoughts fly back to the break up

These four walls are closing in
Look what a fix you've put me in
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
I know my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
Since you've been gone
You cast the spell so break it
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
Since you've been gone

So in the night I stand
Beneath the back street light
I read the words that you sent to me
I can take the afternoon
Night time comes around too soon
You don't know what you mean to me

Your poisoned letter, your telegram
Just go to show you don't give a damn
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
I know my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
Since you've been gone
You cast the spell so break it
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
Since you've been gone

Everywhere you go
Baby you know you're never too far, oooh
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
I know my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
Since you've been gone
You cast the spell so break it
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
Ever since you've been gone

Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
I know my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
Since you've been gone
You cast the spell so break it
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
Ever since you've been gone

Now I'm Here

Here I stand
Look around, around, around, around, around
But you won't see me

Now I'm here
Now I'm there
Just a new man
Yes, you made me live again

A baby I was when you took my hand
The light of the night burned bright
The people all stared didn't understand
But you knew my name on sight

Whatever came of you and me
America's new bride to be
Down in the dungeon just Peaches 'n' me
Don't I love her so
'Cos you made me live again
Yeah

A thin moon me in a smoke screen sky
Where beams of your lovelight chase
Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
With rain running down my face
Your matches still light up the sky
Many a tear lives on in my eye
Down in the city just Hoople 'n' me

Go, go, go little Queenie
Go, go, go little Queenie

Whatever comes of you and me
I love to leave my memory with you

Now I'm here
Think I'll stay around, around, around, around
Down in the city justa you 'n' me

Guitar Extravagance

Resurrection (including '1812 Overture' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody')

There's a pain in my brain
Confusion in my heart
My blood's fit for bursting my body apart
I'm gonna ride
Ride the night into the morning sun

Ooh, gonna make my resurrection
No more of this crap
Got a whole new direction
Ain't no turning back
Resurrection is a gonna come

My spirit is weeping
For freedom it cries
Been scraping my living
In the valley of lies
(Ooh, ooh, ooh) ride the night to the morning sun

Ooh, I'm a victim of a victim
Of a conspiracy
From a corpum derelictum
Gonna fly and be free
Resurrection is a gonna come

Clear the vision
Heal the system
Sins forgiven
Rise

Flee the prison
Break the system
Sins forgiven
Rise

Ride the night - ooh, yes I know I'm still alive
Ride the night, yeah, I'm gonna ride
Rise again in the morning light

(Cozy's drum solo)

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr Cozy Powell

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

There's no sense in my counting
The price of those years
There's too many heartaches
And too many tears
(Ooh, ooh, ooh) Ride the night into the morning sun

Oooh yes I thought I was dreaming
But the east is ablaze
With the promise of the future
Heavenly days
Ride the night to the morning sun
Ride the night ooh, into the morning sun
Resurrection is a gonna come

Yeah

Last Horizon

Slow Lyrics....
Alright, this is for you

Fighting in the street gonna take on the world some day
Blood on your face

Hammer To Fall

Alright we've got one more in the pot. You want one more, one like this. Hammer To Fall

Here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
Comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting for the hammer to fall

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
Lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays

Toe your line and play their game
Ooh, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same (oh no, oh no)
Lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane (oh no)
Baby now your struggle's all vain

For he who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just want to scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for?
Ooh, just surrender and it won't hurt at all
Just got time to say your prayers
While your waiting for the hammer to fall, yeah

Yeah
Oh
You know you waiting, you waiting, you waiting
Want you to wait, oh baby
You're just waiting for the hammer to, hammer to, hammer to fall
To fall

Goodnight and thank you

Give it to me one more time
