MISERY FOR MISERYīS SAKE

(Lehdonkivi)

I canīt believe you got so down, by just falling to the ground
Good albumīs worth of whine
I canīt believe you lost control, by just missing the late show
you over did it this time
Your jeans got torn, so I understand your pain
Now thatīs a perfectly good reason to complain

A bad time is had by all, but all you do is just whine
I wonīt break, for itīs just misery for miseryīs sake

So you maybe hit a low, your mother told you, you canīt go
And now youīre all alone in your room
Well you write a song about, and you put an album out
Tour the world and tell your gloom
Now youīre hailed as a new messiah all around
Youīre the king of misery, the talk of the town

A bad time is had by all, but all you do is just whine
I wonīt break, for itīs just misery for miseryīs sake

I wouldnīt want to, be in your shoes
They may be golden, but theyīre breaking
I wouldnīt choose what, you chose to
And now you think whole world is shaking
Donīt wanna be live in your asylum
Or the temple of your bush
A pearl in the garden, you still tire me
There goes sinking the U.S. dream
Where guitar = misery

A bad time is had by all, but all you do is just whine
I wonīt break, for itīs just misery for miseryīs sake
misery for miseryīs sake
misery for miseryīs
misery for miseryīs
misery for misery

A PERFECT POP SONG

(Mäkelä)

Sitting alone in my room, wondering what to do
Where to go and who to go to
Singing and playing guitar wonīt get me far
If I donīt write some some decent stuff
But I might write a brilliant one
A real outshiny one
One that would break them hearts
One that would hit the charts

Aa-aa-aa a perfect pop song
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right
Aa-aa-aa a perfect pop song
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right

So I sing about emptyness, about pain and bitterness
And add a spoonful of hope on top
I sing about love thatīs lost, hard life that takes itīs cost
Few other things I have not
Sing about empty minds, sing about world unkind
Sing about lonely hearts, sing about world outside

Aa-aa-aa a perfect pop song
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right
Aa-aa-aa a perfect pop song
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right

A perfect pop song, it ainīt so easy to write
A perfect pop song, should be doubt about,
In my mind, whether to get it right

But I might write a brilliant one
A real outshiny one
One that would break them hearts
One that would hit the charts

Aa-aa-aa a perfect pop song
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right
Aa-aa-aa a perfect pop song
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right
But I just donīt seem to, just canīt get it right

DIFFERENCE

(Mäkelä)

Well, you could have had the stars, but didnīt dare to look that far
It could have been so good you know
It could have been so beautiful, but you decided to let go

But I donīt mind(I donīt mind), half the time(half the time)
Iīm gonna stand up straight and proud and shout

It makes no difference to me now, it makes no difference anyhow
You could have had the stars, but no.
It could have been so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

And now youīve realised youīre wrong, well, iīve known that all along
And the stars shine bright in the night
And youīre wondering where to hide, well I can tell you : I donīt mind

No I donīt mind(I donīt mind), none of the time(none of the time)
Iīm gonna be real good and smart and fine

It makes no difference to me now, it makes no difference anyhow
You could have had the stars, but no.
It could have been so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

And all the roads have lead you nowhere now
And all your promises have changed
And all the roads have lead you nowhere now
And itīs time for you to change, itīs timeto rearrange
Time to take that blindfold off your face, youīre off your face

It makes no difference to me now, it makes no difference anyhow
You could have had the stars, but no.
It could have been so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

Beautiful, glorified, lovely and mesmerized beautiful, beautiful now
Beautiful, glorified, lovely and mesmerized beautiful, beautiful now

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

AMBITION

(Mäkelä)

Whatever happened to my ambition, did I drink it yesterday
Whatever happened to my vision
Whatever happened to my ambition, did someone steal it while I was away
Whatever happened to the mission
And all the time I see Iīm wasting more on this than anything
And all the while I feel Iīm getting less and giving more

And I donīt wanna know no more
Iīve had enough I donīt wanna know the score
I wanted so much more than this could ever give
And now I, I donīt wanna see the sky
Iīve had a taste and I canīt see reasons why
It would hold such appeal for anyone
As it holds for me, holds for me, holds for me

Whatever happened to the things, I held precious when I was young
Whatever happened to those things
I know what happened to those things, theyīre gone, forgotten each one
And you canīt fly without your wings
And all the time I see, Iīm wasting more on this than anything
And all the time I feel Iīm gaining less and giving more

And I donīt wanna know no more
Iīve had enough I donīt wanna know the score
I wanted so much more than this could ever give
And now I, I donīt wanna see the sky
Iīve had a taste and I canīt see reasons why
It would hold such appeal for anyone
As it holds for me, holds for me, holds for me

And all of the time, I could be fine
And do what I like
But Iīve given up on that already
And now I know itīs all just waste of time

And I donīt wanna know no more
Iīve had enough I donīt wanna know the score
I wanted so much more than this could ever give
And now I, I donīt wanna see the sky
Iīve had a taste and I canīt see reasons why
It would hold such appeal for anyone
As it holds for me, holds for me, holds for me, holds for me

BRIGHTER DAYS

(Mäkelä)

The sun shines through my window, wakes me from my sleep
Iīve run out of coffee, but i can go for tea
And i donīt know what it is that makes me feel
So good as i now seem to feel

So hereīs for brighter, brighter, brighter
Brighter days
And lighter, lighter, lighter
Lighter pace
And everything looks beautiful
Through rosecoloured eyes

And as i walk along the sunnyside of street
I canīt help but smile to everyone i meet
And i donīt know just how long i can feel
This good about almost everything

So hereīs for brighter, brighter, brighter
Brighter days
And lighter, lighter, lighter
Lighter pace
And everything looks beautiful
Through rosecoloured eyes

So hereīs for brighter, brighter, brighter
Brighter days
And lighter, lighter, lighter
Lighter pace
And everything looks beautiful
Through rosecoloured eyes

Everything looks beautiful
Through rosecoloured eyes

Everything looks beautiful
Through rosecoloured eyes

BEAM ME UP

(Pelttari)

Wouldnīt it be nice if itīd be empty
With no-one else but us
But itīs always crowded like a rush-hour bus
And in my darkest moments
I wish to be away
I wish that I was good and I wish that iīd be saved

Could you remind me
What it is that keeps us tied down here?
Would you revive me

Now, beam me up and iīll be fine
Now, beam me up and iīll be fine

All these empty moments
Donīt ease up with time
Itīs not easier with age
Though I thought itīd be fine

And you could save me
If you just would beam me up in time
Donīt you just hate this

Now, beam me up and Iīll be fine
Now, beam me up and Iīll be fine

And most of the time
I just feel Iīm too tired to be right
And thereīs no time for
Us to get up tonight

Now, beam me up and Iīll be fine
Now, beam me up and Iīll be fine

Now, beam me up and Iīll be fine
Now, beam me up and Iīll be fine

ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY MISSED

(Mäkelä)

Yes Iīm sorry, oh what did I say?
Well I shoud be sorry, but in a different way
And I donīt know what I could say
To make it little less ok
When mixed feelings mix with drink
It leaves a little left to think
And in the end all that will remain is only catīs piss stink
And I see it in my head
All the things I could have said
And all the things I never said

And I would never try to change your mind
But you could change mine
And I want more than this, domestic bliss, another Green Fizz
Itīs just another opportunity missed

This could be made up, this could be true
This could be passed part two
But then again I donīt think
That would really mean a thing to you
For every time that one gets burned
There always should be a lesson learned
But I donīt know if I can say a thing without us being hurt
But I donīt regret it all you know
I guess that it just goes to show
That I donīt know just what I want

And I would never try to change your mind
But you could change mine
And I want more than this, domestic bliss, another Green Fizz
Itīs just another opportunity missed

And I would never try to change your mind
But you could change mine
And I want more than this, domestic bliss, another Green Fizz
Itīs just another opportunity missed

DREAMS TO HAPPEN

(Mäkelä & Lehdonkivi)

Well, Iīm gladitīs over now
Iīm tired of always feeling down, on the ground
And I wanna know what I could see
I wanna know what I could be
If I could just stop being down

Donīt wanna be lost I wanna be found
I wanna get up from my place underground
It will be better for us this time
Why bother to whine when you can shine
When you can shine

And itīs time for dreams to happen
And itīs time for our dreams to come true
For me and you
And now itīs time
To know your enemy

Lifeīs not easy we know it all
You just have to try to get by with what you got
Today I will get out of bed
Today I will face the world instead
Of staying in

And itīs time for dreams to happen
And itīs time for our dreams to come true
For me and you
And now itīs time
To happen to me
To happen to me
Happen to me
Happen to me
Happen to me
Happen to me

MYSTERY

(Lehdonkivi)

There are certain things in life, which are better left unsaid
But itīs too late to stop now, iīve said all of them anyway
And I donīt know what iīve done, canīt remember what Iīve said
Maybe thatīs just the way it is, or maybe itīs all inside my head

I wanna know whatīs in my mind, in my head
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself
I wanna feel, I wanna know whatīs going on inside of me
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself

And itīs hard to believe Iīm where I stand, without knowing who I am
Itīs hard to find out just who you are, when youīve been faceless this far
Oh, excuse me, I just went blind, or maybe itīs all inside my mind
I am sorry, I apologize, Iīve apologized all my life

I wanna know whatīs in my mind, in my head
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself
I wanna feel, I wanna know whatīs going on inside of me
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself

Too many thoughts inside my mind
A whole new way of being unkind
I better not to think about it all
I better not to think no more
I better not to think at all

I wanna know whatīs in my mind, in my head
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself
I wanna feel, I wanna know whatīs going on inside of me
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself

I wanna know whatīs in my mind, in my head
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself
I wanna feel, I wanna know whatīs going on inside of me
I wanna see what lies behind the mystery of myself

BUZZ ALDRIN

(Mäkelä)

Once again into this bar, a drink and a camel low tar
Nothing changes, never does, i donīt know, i miss the fuss
But once upon i shone like star
It seems so different hereat the bar
And once nevada shone like moon
And now iīm here all the time
Seems like life has passed me by
Like tonight

Now i know, how pete best must have felt
When someone else takes all the credit,
All the medals, all the fame
And in my life, iīve been hurt too many times
And now itīs time for someone to apologize
And recognize me

Once i knew what i would be, what would be my destiny
But those days are far behind, and now i know that in my life
All the best things are in the past
And that past just wouldnt last
And i think about the moon
And i should be in the sky
Right there behind the clouds so high
I could fly

Now i know, how pete best must have felt
When someone else takes all the credit,
All the medals, all the fame
And in my life, iīve been hurt too many times
And now itīs time for someone to apologize
And recognize me

What i need and what i donīt
What i will and what i wonīt
I donīt know, i should be real far
But every good bar you find a star
To be a star, to be a star...

Now i know, how pete best must have felt
When someone else takes all the credit,
All the medals, all the fame
And in my life, iīve been hurt too many times
And now itīs time for someone to apologize
And recognize me

I WANNA HATE YOU

(Mäkelä)

You wanna leave go right ahead
Iīm not blaming you, instead
I'am saying just farewell
You wanna stay, well thatīs OK
Thatīs what I wanted all the way
I just didnīt have balls to say
And, I wanna know, I wanted to show, how far I thought weīd go

I, I wanna hate you
I, I really do
I, I wanna hate you
But canīt say I do

Iīm not happy, I want out
On second thoughts I want back in
Or was it out or maybe in
I need some time, give me a leave
I need to preach what I believe
But do I believe in what I preach
And, I wanna know, I wanted to show, how far I thought weīd go

I, I wanna hate you
I, I really do
I, I wanna hate you
But canīt say I do

Well, I wanted to know
I wanted to show
I wanted to know

And, I wanna know, I wanted to show, how far I thought weīd go

I, I wanna hate you
I, I really do
I, I wanna hate you
But canīt say I do

WHATīS THE MATTER WITH YOU?

(Mäkelä)

Youīre going to places you donīt wanna go
And you are talking to people you donīt wanna know
But you still keep believing that itīs all gonna change one day
You still keep believing though youīve given up dreaming
And now you wanna know is there a thing to believe in
And now you wanna know is there anything you could say
I could tell you few things ībout life now
I could tell you but i never found out

I, I donīt know where you should go
And ionly would like to know
Whatīs the matter with you?
Whatīs the matter with you?

Youīre thinking of reasons why youīre never being cheerful
And why in the end you always end up being fearful
Well, you never caught an earful of anything i had to say
Youīre thinking of reasons why youīre always out of money
And why in hte end youīre never ever feeling funny
Well, let me tell you little honey thatīs simply the waay life goes
I could tell you few things ībout life now
I could tell you but i never found out

I, I donīt know where you should go
And ionly would like to know
Whatīs the matter with you?
Whatīs the matter with you?

Youīre going to places you donīt wanna go
And you are talking to people you donīt wanna know
But you still keep believing that itīs all gonna change one day
You still keep believing though youīve given up dreaming
And now you wanna know is there a thing to believe in
And now you wanna know is there anything you could say
I could tell you few things ībout life now
I could tell you but i never found out

I, I donīt know where you should go
And ionly would like to know
Whatīs the matter with you?
Whatīs the matter with you?
Whatīs the matter with you?
Whatīs the matter with you?

SOMETHING ABOUT YOU

(Mäkelä)

Turn the other cheek, she said, and slowly turned away
And I was left to wonder what on earth can one say
To someone whoīs as vaguely in touch with human life
To someone who just doesnīt seem to know the wrong from right
And all the time I saw what was really going on
But I just couldnīt see it was too close to home

Well, I know that you ainīt special
Oh, I know that you ainīt right
But still thereīs something about you
That keeps me awake all night
And I know that there is nothing
Well, I could do to turn your head
But still I feel thereīs something
Thatīs needed to be said
About you, something about you, yeah, about you

And I was walking down the lonely streets of your town
And I eas sad to see that there was no-one else around
And I donīt think you understand how much Iīve sacrificed
It must get pretty hard to see behind all those lies
And I just canīt believe you canīt be that blind to see
Itīs a small step for mankind but giant leap for me

Well, I know that you ainīt special
Oh, I know that you ainīt right
But still thereīs something about you
That keeps me awake all night
And I know that there is nothing
Well, I could do to turn your head
But still I feel thereīs something
Thatīs needed to be said
About you, something about you, yeah, about you

And all the time, when I walk upon the streets where I live on
I donīt recognize myself, but I do know where I belong
And in my life I have never ever asked for reasons why
I donīt know it but iīll try

And I just canīt believe you canīt be that blind to see
Itīs a small step for mankind but giant leap for me

Well, I know that you ainīt special
Oh, I know that you ainīt right
But still thereīs something about you
That keeps me awake all night
And I know that there is nothing
Well, I could do to turn your head
But still I feel thereīs something
Thatīs needed to be said
About you, something about you, yeah, about you
something about you, yeah, about you
