WHERE HAPPINESS BEGINS I was just about to kiss your smile but there were too many eyes looking our way. I know how to break your heartstrings, I know where happiness begins. I'll place a kiss upon your lips and I won't let it dry, I'll look you in the eye and I won't look away. I'll place a kiss upon your lips and I won't let it dry, I'll look you in the eye and I won't look away. I know I should have told you that I can only carry the weight of my own little world on my shoulders. I know what the telephone rings bring, I know where happiness begins. I'll place a kiss upon your lips and I won't let it dry, I'll look you in the eye and I won't look away. I'll place a kiss upon your lips and I won't let it dry, I'll look you in the eye and I won't look away.

where happiness begins by ANT

YOUR HEART GOT BORED I couldn't believe you could leave, I couldn't say won't you stay, so how can I have cause for complaint. He's never been past your door before, it hurts to think you’d want him more when it was me that you loved till your heart got bored. It was me that you loved till your heart got bored. Oh don't stay sore with me on days you're with him. I couldn't believe you could leave, I couldn't say won't you stay, so how can I have cause for complaint. So how can I have cause for complaint.

I HOPE YOU'LL ALWAYS BE THERE When I feel lonely I need you to be where I can see you and where you can see me, need you to hold me need you to want me in your arms. When I get doubtful I need to see your eyes, when I'm without you I need the time to fly. Bringing you closer bringing you back into my arms. I hope you'll always be there, I hope you'll always be there, I hope you'll always be there beating with me. When I catch no sleep whenever I close my eyes, when I find no peace, when all of my hope dies, I long to be near you, I long to be with you, in your arms. When I feel jealous of the time we spend apart, when I feel jealous, I long to break your heart, it's because I want you, It's because I need you in my arms. I hope you'll always be there, I hope you'll always be there, I hope you'll always be there beating with me. I hope you'll always be there, I hope you'll always be there, I hope you'll always be there beating with me. (When I feel lonely I need you to be where I can see you and where you can see me). I hope you'll always be there. (I need you to hold me I need you to want me in your arms). I hope you'll always be there. (I need you to hold me I need you to want me in your arms).

 

THE QUEUE TO YOUR HEART Can I feel your smile on my face so mine can be replaced when it disappears without a trace. And can I keep your words in my mouth so I can shout them out on days you are not about. And on those days you know where I will be, waiting in the queue to your heart. On those days you know where to find me, jumping the queue to your heart. Can I have your voice in my head so when I toss and turn in bed I can hear all the words you said. And can I keep your kiss on my lips to check that it still fits on days I am missing it. And on those days you know where I will be, waiting in the queue to your heart. On those days you know where to find me, jumping the queue to your heart. Do you know how I so long to be you. Do you know how I so long to be you.

I ALWAYS HURT THE ONE THAT I LOVE I should thank my stars I found her, she's full of hellos not goodbyes. I should throw my arms around her and never bring tears to her eyes. For she flashes me those sweet smiles that make my blue skies stay and she always brings birds that sing sweetly all day. I should rub my eyes in wonder at the way she makes time fly. I should kiss the air around her and never bring tears to her eyes. For she fills me with butterflies that take my breath away and she always brings birds that sing sweetly all day. But I always hurt the one that I love, I always hurt the one that I love.

BREATHE MY NAME Who put these thoughts in my head, could it have been you whilst we slept? And who placed that smile on your face? Could it have been me in the race to taste the space between the words you say? When you breathe my name I know it can never sound the same again. No it can never sound the same again. Who tied these wings to my heart, could it have been you from the start? And who placed that smile on your face? Could it have been me in the race to taste the space between the words you say? When you breathe my name I know oh it can never sound the same again, no it can never sound the same again. So don't fall back into arms that you know so well. When here are mine they are new and open wide, climb into my shell. And let me taste the space between the words you say. When you breathe my name, I know it can never sound the same again, no it can never sound the same again.

THE TRICK She turns my dull life around with a nod and a wink. God bless her because now I can hardly think. May I stay out of your way when I've nothing nice to say, except I'm sorry. How d'you know when to go, that's the trick I wish to know, well I'm listening. She places a sparkle into these tired eyes and how I marvel just waiting on her surprise. May I stay out of your way when I've nothing nice to say except I'm sorry. How d'you know when to go that's the trick I wish to know, well I'm listening. May I stay out of your way when I've nothing nice to say except I'm sorry. How d'you know when to go that's the trick I wish to know, well I'm listening. I'll just sit in the corner Oh I won't say a thing. I promise you won't even notice me or the huge hopes I bring, the huge hopes I bring.

EASY ‘Tween the sheets of my bed she was fashionably late. From the first ice cold shoulder I knew we'd soon be out of date. It's too late now I know she's already starting to go and she knows that I won't make it easy. It's too late now I know she's already starting to go and she's knows that I won't make it easy. I can't get the perfect picture and it will keep me up all night, just trying hard to picture her with my eyes shut tight. It's too late now I know she's already starting to go and she knows that I won't make it easy. It's too late now I know she's already starting to go and she knows that I won't make it easy. Won't make it easy on me won't make it easy on you. Won't make it easy on me won't make it easy on you. Won't make it easy on me won't make it easy on you. Won't make it easy on me won't make it easy on you.

NOT SLEEPING THE SAME WAY I'm sad to see it's morning, the night was all I wanted for you. I wait for you to tell me if the dreams that you've been making have come true. I'm not sleeping the same way, I'm not sleeping the same way. I'm sad to see it's morning, the night always runs faster than the day. I wait for you to kiss me before the dreams that I've been making run away. I'm not sleeping the same way, I'm not sleeping the same way, I'm not sleeping the same way, I'm not sleeping the same way.

THAT SHINING SMILE I get in your eyes like sunshine in July on days when you seek the cool shade of a tree. And I buzz around you like a bee on a bloom, hoping to draw out that shining smile. You slam the door and the pictures on the wall wave you goodbye swinging from side to side. And I listen for you in the still of the room quietly picturing that shining smile. We stare at the night sky all covered in stars that we can't even see but know are up there somewhere. It's easy to be in the way in a small way, disturbing your peace late at night in your dreams. Because I'm drawn to you like a moth to the moon, heading straight towards that shining smile. Yeah I'm drawn to you like a moth to the moon heading straight towards that shining smile. Straight towards that shining smile. Straight towards that shining smile. Straight towards that shining smile. 

MOUNTAINS These mountains that you climb each and every time we meet. These words I never say, these times I look away staring at my feet. Oh what is it that I am looking for from you? It's the place I long to wake, it's the kiss I long to take but the heart will only break. It's the space I long to fill, it's the time I'd love to kill but the words will never spill. Oh these mountains that you climb each and every time we sleep. These moves I never make, these promises I take but know I'll never keep. Oh what is it that I am looking for from you? It's the place I long to wake, it's the kiss I long to take but the heart will only break. It's the space I long to fill, it's the time I'd love to kill but the words will never spill. It's the place I long to wake, it's the kiss I long to take but the heart will only break. It's the space I long to fill, it's the time I'd love to kill but the words will never spill, the words will never spill.

PATHWAY I would be fortunate to be on her mind. I would be happy to stay. For I have a path I like to follow and she has a path that leads away. I have a path that leads to sorrow and she leaves a path I cannot trace. I could be sunny come tomorrow, I could grow cold today. For I have a path I like to follow, she has a path that leads away. I have a path that leads to sorrow and she leaves a path I cannot trace. I have a path that leads to sorrow. She leaves a path I cannot trace.

YOU'VE LOST YOUR APPEAL You see I still tremble when you touch and you see how my head shakes when you make new plans for us. I know if you leave me I will be OK and I know if we survive I will only drive you away. I fear when the moment returns and you heal, the whole idea will have lost its appeal. You know I still need my own company and you know I will leave just to breathe more comfortably. You knew it was only a matter of time before someone new replaced you in my mind. I fear when the moment returns and you heal, the whole idea will have lost its appeal. I fear when the moment returns and you heal, the whole idea will have lost its appeal. I knew you wouldn't phone (I knew you wouldn’t phone) because you only phone (because you only phone) when I'm not at home (when I’m not at home) when I'm not at home. I fear when the moment returns and you heal, the whole idea will have lost its appeal. I fear when the moment returns and you heal, the whole idea will have lost its appeal (lost its appeal) to me, to me.
