Trouble In Paradise Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Uptight Downtown

Streets are lined with people
People who want to move, move, move
How could all these people have so much to prove, prove, prove
Oh I can only ask myself
Oh where are you all going
And won't you take me with you to
Where all the sirens are blaring

Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how the make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising
Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how the make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

Streets are lined with people
With nothing else to lose, lose, lose
When did all these people decide to change their shoes, shoes, shoes
Oh I can only ask myself
Oh where are you all going
And won't you take me with you to
Where all the sirens are blaring

Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how the make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how the make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

Uptight [x8]
Uptight downtown [x4]

Why are we fighting
I don't understand
Oh the temperature is rising tonight

Kiss And Not Tell

Ten thousand stories sent
Two lovers disguise
You've seen the future now
A love that is blind

Makes you want to kiss and not tell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

You've dialled that number now
So where's the surprise
Temptations calling you
A secret reply

Makes you want to kiss and not tell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

All along I've had feelings I can't help
Makes me want to kiss and not tell

You say in evidence
They won't take you alive
But when the sun goes down
You cover your lies

Makes you want to kiss and not tell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

You like the elegance
But it's weighing you down
And sometimes you just need a night on the town, oooh

Makes you want to kiss and not tell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

All along I've had feelings I can't help
Makes me want to kiss and not...
And all I want is to come right out of my shell
Makes me want to kiss and not tell

Makes you want to kiss and not tell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

All along I've had feelings I can't help
Makes me want to kiss and not
And all I want is to come right out of my shell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

All along I... Feelings I can't...
Feelings I can't help
All I want is... to come right out my... to come right out my shell

All along I've had feelings I can't help
Makes me want to kiss and not...
And all I want is to come right out of my shell
Makes me want to kiss and not tell

All along I've had feelings I can't help
Makes me want to kiss and not...
And all I want is to come right out of my shell
Makes you want to kiss and not tell

Cruel Sexuality

I've been talking to myself
Oh, I think I need your help
Oh, this love is make believe
Trapped inside a fantasy

And he came running out of the water
In the dead of the night he could see
As his shadow came towards her
She felt what she wanted to see
She whispered use me

What you touch you believe
It's a dangerous scene
When passion turns into greed

Cruel sexuality
Am I a fool
To let you trouble me?
Cruel sexuality

I don't even know myself
'Cause I'm becoming someone else
Where is rationality
When I'm lost inside a dream
I say just use me

When you chose to deceive
It's a dangerous scene
When passion turns into greed

Cruel sexuality
Am I a fool
To let you trouble me?
Cruel sexuality
Sexuality

Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me in your prison at night?
Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me, why must you keep me

Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me in your prison at night?
Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me, why must you keep me

Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me in your prison at night?
Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me, why must you keep me

Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me in your prison at night?
Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me, why must you keep me

(Cruel sexuality)
Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me in your prison at night?

(Am I a fool
To let you trouble me?)
Oh, you make me happy in my everyday life
Why must you keep me in your prison at night?

Cruel sexuality

Paradise Is You

Walking along on a sandy beach
Everybody's laughing under cigarette trees
And the water here is crystal clear and bright
The air is rich with a hawaiian breeze
The grass is alive with sugar weeds
And the hill tops tuck in the bay for the night

And the palm trees make it feel like paradise
But without you here there's nothing nice
'Cos in your eyes
That's my paradise

When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new
My paradise is you, my paradise is you
When everything I know is slipping out of view
My paradise is you, my paradise is you

You
My heaven is you

The runners run and the teasers tease
But none of these faces can set me free
And the water here is crystal clear and bright
When I compare this pleasure beach
To all the places in your eyes that I have seen
It could be anywhere, if you're not by my side

And the palm trees make it feel like paradise
But without you here there's nothing nice
Cos in your eyes
That's my paradise

When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new
My paradise is you, my paradise is you
When everything I know is slipping out of view
My paradise is you, my paradise is you

When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new
My paradise is you, my paradise is you
When everything I know is slipping out of view
My paradise is you, my paradise is you

You
My heaven is you
My heaven is you
My heaven is you

All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When everything I know is slipping out of view)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When everything I know is slipping out of view)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When everything I know is slipping out of view)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When all the roads ahead of me stop looking new)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(When everything I know is slipping out of view)
(My paradise is you, my paradise is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(You)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(My heaven is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(My heaven is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

(My heaven is you)
All my love is for you
Darling it's only you who can stop my heart from crying

Sexotheque

He wants to know
What it feels like to mess around, mess around
She wants to know
What it feels like to settle down, settle down
He's got the money but, no it's not enough
He wants to pounce, he wants to pounce
Never knowing if he's given you up
Or if you're just not good enough
Ooh-ooh-ooh [x2]

[Chorus:]
She wants to know why he's got
All that money, money, money on him
He's at the Sexotheque
He never answers the phone
All the money, money, money on him
He's at the Sexotheque

He wants to go
Where the red light shines so bright, shines so bright
He wants to know
Why he feels so cold inside, cold inside
He turns her picture round, he doesn't hear a sound
No ones around, no ones around
Never knowing if he's given you up
Or if you're just not good enough
Ooh-ooh-ooh [x2]

[Chorus x4]

He's at the Sexotheque

Tropical Chancer

Can't take the money, and the food that's on my hand
But you have to understand that he's a dreamer
Living and laughing in a mind you can't believe
This place turns honest men into thieves
And I can see it in bizarre
It is that time
To sail out from the night

I met him through a dancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
A tropical chancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
I met him through a dancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
A tropical chancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer

He'll trade your loving for the things he's never seen
The place he's never been
Above the member he is just a good pretender
And he doesn't give his love away for free
And I can see it in bizarre
It is that time
To sail out from the night

I met him through a dancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
A tropical chancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
I met him through a dancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
A tropical chancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer

I met him through a dancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
A tropical chancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
I met him through a dancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer
A tropical chancer
Didn't know he was a tropical chancer

Silent Partner

I've been living in the light of the shadows
Why won't you let me leave?
And I've been trying to find my way to the shallows
But the water's just too deep
Always something inside of me keeps dragging me down
I'm going deep below the undertow
And it won't let go
All I need is
Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence
And it creeps in through the walls at night when
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence
All I need is silence
I'm crying out for silence
You're not my partner, no you're not a part of me
I need
Silence

So tired of breathing in numbers
Trying to stop my racing heart
Oh, all I know is that I want it to stop
And I don't know where to start
Your always on my shoulder praying I won't try anymore
Conversations that begin to shout
Are you happy now?
All I need is
Silence

All I need is

Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence
And it creeps in through the walls at night when
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence
All I need is silence
I'm crying out for silence
All I, all I know, all I need, all I need is silence
All I need is silence
I'm crying out for silence
All I, all I know, all I need, all I need is silence

There's a thumping that's, thumping that's

Silence
Silence

All I need is silence
All I need is silence
I'm crying out for silence
All I, all I know, all I need, all I need is silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence (silence)
And it creeps in through the walls at night when (silence)
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence (silence)
And it creeps in through the walls at night when (silence)
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence (silence)
And it creeps in through the walls at night when (silence)
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence (silence, silence)

Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with
There's a thumping that's filled with violence

Silence

Let Me Down Gently

Let me down gently
That's what I think I need
But when you let me down gently
It still feels it hard, hard
Turn me into someone good
That's what I really need
Tel me that I'm someone good
So we're not so far apart, apart
I hope it doesn't seem like I'm young, foolish and green
Let me in for a minute
You're not my life but I want you in it

Set me up I'm slowly
That's what you do to me
Oh you set me up slowly
Now I can't come down, down
Let me down gently
That's what I think you need
But when I let you down gently
And you try to hide your frowns, frowns
I hope it doesn't seem like I'm young, foolish and green
Let me in for a minute
You're not my life but I want you in it

And I hope it's sinking
Left behind your perfect skin
There's a part of you that's free
And I know there's a place for me

Let me down gently
That's what I think I need
But when you let me down gently
It still feels it hard, hard
Turn me into someone good
That's what I really need
Tel me that I'm someone good
So we're not so far apart, apart

I hope it doesn't seem like I'm young and foolish and green
Let me in for a minute
You're not my life but I want you in it

And I hope it's sinking
Left behind your perfect skin
There's a part of you that's free
And I know there's a place for me

The Feeling

There's plenty of time to get me in shape
I promise I'll keep the promises I make
Barely said hello before we say goodbye
While I'm away I swear I'll try
When you laugh it makes me laugh too
I can't believe I've let you get through
Get through
Get through

Can't sleep I'm thinking about you all night
Tossing and turning
It's not right

I won't let you hide

When it's dark and we're alone in the car
I know I've got the feeling
When I wake up and there you are
I know I've got the feeling
For you I will raise, raise the bar
Cos I, I've got the feeling
Got the feeling
I've got the feeling

There's plenty of time to get me in shape
I promise I'll keep the promises I make
Barely said hello before we say goodbye
While I'm away I swear I'll try
When you laugh it makes me laugh too
I can't believe I've let you get through
Get through
Get through

Don't, don't let me hide

Taking the time to make me feel right
Taking the time to make me feel nice
Can't sleep I'm thinking about you all night
Tossing and turning
It's not right

Don't, don't let me hide

On the outside I might seem strong but
Really I'm, I'm just a loner
I don't believe you ever really grow up
I'm just a child whenever you show up
