(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Pure Imagination

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy
Explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world?
There's nothing to it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

If you want to see magic lands
Close your eyes and you will see one
Want to be a dreamer, be one
Anytime you please and please save me one

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

The is no
Place to go
To compare with your imagination
So go there
To be free
If you truly wish to be

Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

What I Did For Love

Kiss today goodbye
The sweetness and the sorrow
Wish me luck, the same to you
But I can't regret
What I did for love, what I did for love

Look, my eyes are dry
The gift was ours to borrow
It's as if we always knew
And I won't forget what I did for love
What I did for love

Gone
Love is never gone
As we travel on
Love's what we'll remember

Kiss today goodbye
And point me toward tomorrow
We did what we had to do
Won't forget, can't regret
What I did for love

What I did for love
What I did for love
What I did for love

Bring Him Home

Valjean
God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there
He is young
He's afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed.
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.
He's like the son I might have known
If God had granted me a son.
The summers die
One by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am old
And will be gone.
Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He is young
He is only a boy
You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
If I die
Let me die
Let him live
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home

Le Temps Des Cathédrales

C'est une histoire qui a pour lieu
Paris la belle en l'an de Dieu
Mille-quatre-cent-quatre-vingt-deux
Histoire d'amour et de desir
Nous les artistes anonymes
De la sculpture ou de la rime
Tenterons de vous la transcrire
Pour les siecles venir

Il est venu le temps des cathedrales
Le monde est entre
Dans un nouveau millnaire
L'homme a voulu monter vers les toiles
Ecrire son histoire
Dans le verre ou dans la pierre

Pierre aprs pierre, jour aprs jour
De sicle en sicle avec amour
Il a vu s'lever les tours
Qu'il avait bties de ses mains
Les potes et les troubadours
Ont chant des chansons d'amour
Qui promettaient au genre humain
De meilleurs lendemains

Il est venu le temps des cathdrales
Le monde est entr
Dans un nouveau millnaire
L'homme a voulu monter vers les toiles
Ecrire son histoire
Dans le verre ou dans la pierre

Il est venu le temps des cathdrales
Le monde est entr
Dans un nouveau millnaire
L'homme a voulu monter vers les toiles
Ecrire son histoire
Dans le verre ou dans la pierre

Il est foutu le temps des cathdrales
La foule des barbares
Est aux portes de la ville
Laissez entrer ces paens, ces vandales
La fin de ce monde
Est prvue pour l'an deux mille
Est prvue pour l'an deux mille

All I Ask Of You

No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I'm here, nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you

Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I'm here, with you, beside you
To guard you and to guide you

Say you'll love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summer time
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That's all I ask of you

Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You're safe, no one will find you
Your fears are far behind you

All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you, always beside me
To hold me and to hide me

Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you here, beside you
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine, that's all I ask of you

Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you

Share each day with me, each night, each morning

Say you love me

You know I do

Love me, that's all I ask of you.

Anywhere you go, let me go too
Love me, that's all I ask of you

I gave you my music, made your song take wing.
And now, how you've repaid me, denied me and betrayed me.
He was bound to love you, when he heard you sing.
(Sobs)Christine, Christine.

Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you
Share each day with me, each night, each morning...

You will curse the day you did not do!
All that the Phantom asked of you!

Try To Remember

Try to remember the kind of September
when life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
when grass was green and grain so yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
when you were a young and callow fellow,
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
that no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember
although you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
without the hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
the fire of September that made you mellow.
Deep in December our hearts should remember then follow.

Over The Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh why can't I?

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

Children Will Listen / Not While I'm Around

Nothing's gonna harm you
Not while I'm around
Nothing's gonna harm you
No sir, not while I'm around

Demons are prowling everywhere
Nowadays
I'll send 'em howling I don't care
I've got ways

No one's gonna hurt you
No one's gonna dare
Others can desert you
Not to worry, whistle, I'll be there

Demons'll charm you with a smile
For a while
But in time
Nothing can harm you
Not while I'm around

Being close and being clever
Ain't like being true
I don't need to
I would never hide a thing from you
Like some

No one's gonna hurt you
No one's gonna dare
Others can desert you
Not to worry, whistle I'll be there

Demons'll charm you with a smile
For a while
But in time
Nothin' can harm you
Not while I'm around

You'll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on with a hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never, ever walk alone

Walk on, walk on with a hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never, ever walk alone

Old Devil Moon

I look at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me

It's that Old Devil moon
That you stole from the skies
It's that Old Devil Moon in your eyes

You and your glance
Make this romance
Too hot to handle

Stars in the night
Blazing their light
Can't hold a candle

To your razzle-dazzle
You've got me flyin' high and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside

Wanna cry, wanna croon
Wanna laugh like a loon
It's that Old Devil Moon in your eyes

Just when I think, I'm
Free as a dove
Old Devil Moon
Deep in your eyes
Blinds me with love

To your razzle-dazzle
You've got me flyin' high and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside

Wanna cry, wanna croon
Wanna laugh like a loon
It's that Old Devil Moon in your eyes

Just when I think, I'm
Free as a dove
Old Devil Moon
Deep in your eyes
Blinds me with love
Oh, blind me with love

Finishing The Hat

Yes, she looks for me - good.
Let her look for me to tell me why she left me
As I always knew she would.
I had thought she understood.
They have never understood,
And no reason that they should.

But if anybody could...
Finishing the hat,
How you have to finish the hat.
How you watch the rest of the world
From a window
While you finish the hat.
Mapping out a sky.
What you feel like planning a sky.
What you feel when voices that come
Through the window
Go
Until they distance and die,
Until there's nothing but sky

And how you're always turning back too late
From the grass or the stick
Or the dog or the light,
How the kind of woman willing to wait's
Not the kind that you want to find waiting
To return you to the night,
Dizzy from the height,
Coming from the hat,
Studying the hat,
Entering the world of the hat,
Reaching through the world of the hat
Like a window.

Back to this one from that.
Studying a face,
Stepping back to look at a face
Leaves a little space in the way like a window,
But to see - it's the only way to see.

And when the woman that you wanted goes,
You can say to yourself, "Well, I give what I give."
But the women who won't wait for you knows
That, however you live,
There's a part of you always standing by,
Mapping out the sky,
Finishing a hat...
Starting on a hat.
Finishing a hat...
Look, I made a hat...
Where there never was a hat

If I Loved You

If I loved you
Time and again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know

If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
Round in circles I'd go

Longin' to tell you but afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances pass me by

Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you

Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you

Anthem

No man, no madness
Though their sad power may prevail
Can possess, conquer, my country's heart
They rise to fail
She is eternal
Long before nations' lines were drawn
When no flags flew, when no armies stood
My land was born

And you ask me why I love her
Through wars, death and despair
She is the constant, we who don't care

And you wonder will I leave her - but how?
I cross over borders but I'm still there now

How could I leave her? Where would I start?
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

Gold Can Turn To Sand

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

When I left I was leaving with a brother
Him and me, all we had was one and other
We were young, it was springtime
And our dreams of gold were grand
Oh, Kristina, gold can turn to sand
Down that long, blazing trail
I walked beside him
He grew weak, and he leaned on me to guide him
Though I doubted our future in that godforsaken land
Oh, Kristina, gold can turn to sand
Still he shared in my dream
No matter how mad
He believed in me
I was all that he had
And I was glad of his company
In the desert, beyond the burning prairie
We got lost, we were foolish and unwary
Just how thirsty how desperate
you would never understand
Oh, Kristina, gold can turn to sand
Still I willed him along
I taught him the Song of the Ocean Wave
He, who shared in my quest,
Now laid to rest
in a lonely grave
From a well that was poisoned he drank water
And he died where he fell - a beast to slaughter
As his eyes slowly faded
The old watch fell from his hand
Oh, Kristina, gold can turn to sand
Oh, Kristina, gold can turn to sand

Empty Chairs At Empty Tables

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

There's a grief that can't be spoken.
There's a pain goes on and on.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone.

Here they talked of revolution.
Here it was they lit the flame.
Here they sang about tomorrow
And tomorrow never came.

From the table in the corner
They could see a world reborn
And they rose with voices ringing
And I can hear them now!
The very words that they had sung
Became their last communion
On this lonely barricade at dawn.

Oh my friends, my friends forgive me
That I live and you are gone.
There's a grief that can't be spoken.
There's a pain goes on and on.

Phantom faces at the windows.
Phantom shadows on the floor.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more.

Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me
What your sacrifice was for
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will sing no more
