Tears for Fears - Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92)



Sowing the Seeds of Love

High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man
And the lovetrain rides from coast to coast
D.J.'s the man we love the most
Could you be, could you be squeaky clean
And smash any hope of democracy?
As the headline says you're free to choose
There's egg on your face and mud on your shoes
One of these days they're gonna call it the blues

And anything is possible when you're Sowing the Seeds of Love
Anything is possible -- Sowing the Seeds of Love

I spy tears in their eyes
They look to the skies for some kind of divine intervention
Food goes to waste!
So nice to eat, so nice to taste
Politician Grannie with your high ideals
Have you know idea how the Majority feels?
So without love and a promised land
We're fools to the rules of a Government plan
Kick out the Style! Bring back the Jam!

Anything...
Sowing the Seeds
The Birds and the Bees
My Girlfriend and Me in Love

Feel the Pain
Talk about it
If you're a worried man -- then shout about it
Open hearts -- feel about it
Open minds -- think about it
Everyone -- read about it
Everyone -- scream about it!
Everyone
Everyone -- read about it, read about it
Read it in the books in the crannies and the nooks there are books to read
Chorus!

(Mr. England Sowing the Seeds of Love)

Time to eat all your words
Swallow your pride
Open your eyes

High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man
And the lovetrain rides from coast to coast
Every minute of every hour -- "I Love a Sunflower"
And I believe in lovepower, LovePower, LOVEPOWER!!!

Sowing the Seeds
An end to need
And the Politics of Greed
With Love


Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on Mother Nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you'll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world


Woman in Chains

You better love loving and you better behave
You better love loving and you better behave
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Calls her man the Great White Hope
Says she's fine, she'll always cope
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man's deal
And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel
It's a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

Trades her soul as skin and bone
Sells the only thing she owns
Woman in Chains
Woman in Chains

Men of Stone
Men of Stone

Well I feel deep in your heart there are wounds Time can't heal
And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe
Well you know what I mean
It's a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

It's under my skin but out of my hands
I'll tear it a part but I won't understand
I will not accept the Greatness of Man

It's a world gone crazy
Keeps Woman in Chains

So Free Her
So Free Her


Shout

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

In violent times
You shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white
They really really ought to know
Those one track minds
That took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye
You shouldn't have to jump for joy

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

They gave you life
And in return you gave them Hell
As cold as I ice
I hope we live to tell the tale.

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on

And when you've taken down your guard
If I could change your mind
I'd really love you break your heart

Shout
Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on
I'm talking to you
Come on


Head Over Heels


I wanted to be with you alone
And talk about the weather
But traditions I can trace against the child in your face
Won't escape my attention
You keep your distance via the system of touch
And gentle persuasion
I'm lost in admiration could I need you this much
Oh you're wasting my time
You're just wasting time

Something happens and I'm head over heels
I never find out until I'm head over heels
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah don't take my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't throw it away

I made a fire and watching it burn
Thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just how long will it last
No no no have you no ambition
My mother and my brothers used to breathing clean air
And dreaming I'm a doctor
It's hard to be man when there's a gun in your hand
Oh I feel so...

Something happens and I'm head over heels
I never find out until I'm head over heels
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah don't take my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't throw it away

And it's my four leaf clover
I'm on the line, one open mind
This is my four leaf clover


Mad World

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowehere, going nowhere
And their rears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dream in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very
Mad World

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me


Pale Shelter

How can I be sure?
When your intrusion is my illusion
How can I be sure
When all the time you changed my mind
I asked for more and more
How can I be sure

When you don't give me love
You gave me Pale Shelter
You don't give me love
You give me cold hands
And I can't operate on this failure
When all I want to be is
Completely in command

How can I be sure
For all you say you keep me waiting
How can I be sure
When all you do is see me through
I asked for more and more
How can I be sure

I've been here before
There is not why, no need to try
I thought you had it all
I'm calling you, I'm calling you
I ask for more and more
How can I be sure


I Believe

I believe
That when the hurting and the pain has gone
We will be strong
Oh yes we will be strong
And I believe
That if I'm crying while I write these words
Is it absurd?
Or am I being real
I believe
If you knew just what these tears were for
They would just pour
Like every drop of rain
That's why I believe
It is too late for anyone to believe

I believe That if you thought for a moment
Took your time
You would not resign yourself to your fate
Resign yourself to your fate
And I believe That if it's written in the stars
That's fine
I can't deny that I'm a Virgo too
I believe That if you're bristling while you hear this song
I could be wrong
Or have I hit a nerve?
That's why I believe
It is too late for anyone to believe

I believe
That maybe somewhere in the darkness
In the nighttime
In the storm
In the casino
Casino Spanish eyes
I believe
No I can't believe that everytime
You hear a newborn scream
You just can't see
The shaping of a life
The shaping of a life


Tears Roll Down (Laid So Low)

Chewed the bone down too low
Got fed on tea and sympathy
Blew the sail like the wind
I wish you were my enemy
I was humble for you
What a fool I've been to have
Laid so low for so long

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down

Drew the blade way too slow
Was shackled by your honesty
Made a mess, I guess I should have known
That life was lust and liberty
Not a chance mutation or the last temptation
Laid so low for so long, so low

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down


Mothers Talk

My features form with a change in the weather
Weekend
We can work it out
My features form with a change in the weather
Weekend
We can work it out
When the wind blows
When the mothers talk
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the mothers talk
When the wind blows
We can work it out

It's not that you're not good enough
It's just that we can make you better
Given that you pay the price
We can keep you young and tender
Following the footsteps of a funeral pyre
You were paid not to listen
Now your house is on fire

Wake me up when things get started
When everything starts to happen

My features form with a change in the weather

Some of us are horrified
Others never talk about it
But when the weather starts to burn
Then you'll know that you're in trouble
Following the footsteps of a soldier girl
It's time to put your clothes on
And to face the world

Don't you feel your luck is changing
When everything starts to happen
Put your head right next to my heart
The beat of the drums is the fear of the dark

My features form with a change in the weather


Change

You walked in to the room
I just had to laugh
The face you wore was cool
You were a photograph
When it's all too late
It's all too late

I did not have the time
I did not have the nerve
To ask you how you feel
Is this what you deserve
When it's all too late
It's all too late

Change
You can change
And something on your mind
Became a point of view
You lost your honesty
I lost the life in you
When it's all too late
It's all too late
We walk and talk in time
I walk and talk in two
Where does the end of me
become the start of you
When it's all too late
It's all too late

What has happened to
The friend that I once knew
Has he gone away


Advice for the Young at Heart

Advice for the Young at Heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?

To many people living in a secret world
While they play mothers and fathers
We play little boys and girls
When we gonna make it work?
I could be happy
I could be quite naive
It's only me and my shadow
Happy in our make believe
Soon...

And with the hounds at bay
I'll call your bluff

Cos it would be okay
To walk on tiptoes everyday

And when I think of you and all the love that's due
I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
Cos to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
We've got the whole wide world in our hands

Advice for the Young at Heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?

Love is a promise
Love is a souvenir
Once given
Never forgotten, never let it disappear
This could be our last chance
When we gonna make it work?
Working hour is over

And how it makes me weep
Cos someone sent my soul to sleep

And when I...

Working hour is over
We can do anything that we want
Anything that we feel like doing
