SALAMANDER

Met a girl the other night,
Like none you'd ever seen before,
She made you feel something strange,
An addiction left you wanting more.

Here she comes now see her,
Slink across the room,
Watch her as it all,
Spins from view.

She's the salamander,
Crawling through the flames,
She's the salamander,
Why d'you have to play her games.

Here she comes now see her,
Slink across the room,
Watch her as it all,
Spins from view.
Nerves are sending shivers up your spine,
She's playing with fire, and you're the fuel.

Did you want to know the heat,
You had to feel the flames.
See her through the haze,
Fell the fire flow through your veins.

Here she comes now see her,
Slink across the room,
Watch her as it all,
Spins from view.

Here she comes now see her,
Slink across the room,
Watch her as it all,
Spins from view.
Just like a moth to a candle,
Don't go fire dancing with the salamander (Don't go dancing with the salamander),
Don't go fire dancing with the salamander (Don't go dancing with the salamander),
Don't go fire dancing!

CRYING WOLF

When all I needed to say, Was all I ever did, Face it!
You’re the lonely one, my life has just begun
When all you needed to say, Was all I ever did, wasted!
You’re the lonely one, my life has just begun

Chorus
Your crocodile tears mean nothing to me
They just highlight your fears, you’re nothing without me
Your crocodile tears mean nothing to me
They just highlight your fears, you’re nothing without me yeah

When all that I had, was never what you wanted
What did you achieve, all you did was deceive
When all that you had, was all I ever wanted
What did we achieve, we were so naïve

Chorus

When you sit back and see, you will realise all you wanted was me
When you sit back and see, you will realise all you wanted was me
You’re the boy who cried wolf, you’re the boy who lied
You’re the boy who cried, nothing but crocodile tears

Chorus x2

COUPE DE VILLE

Got myself a motor, as you can see
She’s a pale blue Caddy, she’s as sweet as can be.
Soft-top down, the sun I can feel.
My very own brand new automobile.
Burning the road with one fifty h.p,
Gleaming chrome, she’s a sight to see,
Soft-top down, the sun I can feel.
My very own brand new automobile.

Chorus
Running around all over the town in my ‘49 Coupe de Ville
Hitting the street and feeling the heat in my ‘49 Coupe de Ville
Running around all over scene

Got myself a motor, as you can see
She’s a pale blue Caddy, she’s as sweet as can be.
Soft-top down, the sun I can feel.
My very own brand new automobile.
Burning the road with one fifty h.p,
Gleaming chrome, she’s a sight to see,
Soft-top down, the sun I can feel.
My very own brand new automobile.


Chorus

3rd chorus
Running around all over the town in my ‘49 Coupe de Ville
Hitting the streets, feeling the heat in my ‘49 Coupe de Ville
Running around all over the scene,
Running around all over the scene,
Running around all over the scene,
In my Coupe de Ville.

WITH YOU

I don't wanna be one of those guys
Who hang around all night
I don't wanna be one of those girls
With Black, slit skirts so tight
I just wanna go my own way
Do what I wanna do
I don't need these people around
I'll just stick with you

Let me be with you
I wanna be with you
Let me be with you
I wanna be with you

I don't mind if you don't care
i don't mind at all
We could just go along together
I'll answer every call
I just wanna go my own way
Do what I wanna do
I don't need these people around
I'll just stick with you

Let me be with you
I wanna be with you
Let me be with you
I wanna be with you

PAYNE'S GRAY

Turn your back on me, the one who tried to love you.

Now, and at your death, the innocent what you slew.
With your wanton lust desire, shadow black as stone,
You shan’t, don’t mess, put out my fire, turn my heart to stone,
To revenge I shall aspire, just look over your shoulder.  

 

Now you rest in grave, intoxication’s over,
My heart that beats too brave, that leaves you stone cold sober.
Get you through this stunted madness, the other side of charm.
The under layers of your madness, journey here to harm,
I gonna see you brought to justice, listless, lifeless. Oh.  

 

Now the table’s turned, your purpose has crumbled into dust,
Your cries of mercy are just fruitless, no one left to trust,
You twisted piece of filth, your worthless, listless, lifeless! Oh 

 

You give pain a brand new meaning,
You give cheap a brand new meaning,
You give weak a brand new meaning,
You give sad a brand new meaning

OUT OF THE BLUE

Yeah you turn up out the blue, and well yeah I never expected you.
You take me off guard, but you take me with no alarm.
It doesn’t seem to matter what you have to say,

you always win me with your charms anyway.

It was all so simple, all so easy.
When our life's back then was just, books and pens.
But we got older and apparently wiser,

worlds apart but still close, Lost friends.

Yeah you turn up out the blue, and well yeah I never expected you.
You take me off guard, but you take me with no alarm.
It doesn’t seem to matter what you have to say,

you always win me with your charms anyway.

Look here you are, and there we go again.
you think its kinda funny, that some things will never change.
Banging on my door and calling on the phone
oh yeah, you just know when to call. You just know when to call

yeah you turn up out the blue, and well yeah I never expected you.
You take me off guard, but you take me with no alarm.
Yeah you turn up out the blue, and well yeah I never expected you.

FAR AWAY

Far away in an eastern land,
Far away in a no-man's land,
isolated, a wise man stood,
Far away from grass and wood,  

Oh, far away,
Far Away, far away
He was isolated,
Oh yes he was isolated   

This old man was very wise,
An evil man kind of closed his eyes,
Far away in an eastern land,
Isolated by his own hand.   

Oh, far away, far away,
far away,
He was isolated,

oh yes he was isolated.

(c) Suburban Toys, November 1982

THREE LITTLE WORDS

​The birth of a miracle  
In a dull society, 
Spiritual woman meets a passionate guy,
And there’s fireworks on the scene.    

 

And she says 
I love you; I love you until I die,  
No one can compare to you, 
Or make me feel the same inside.   

You gave me more than words,
You gave sincerity,
You taught me how to trust,
Heal my insecurities.   

I love you, 
I love you until I die,
No one can compare to you, 
Or make me feel the same inside.   

So forgive me, 
If I ever caused you pain, 
I just had to confess those 3 little words,
Ones my heart betrayed to me.   

I love you, 
I love you until I die,
No one can compare to you, 
Or make me feel the same inside.   

I love you, 
I love you until I die,
No one can compare to you, 
Or make me feel the same inside.

RADIOACTIVE

​There’s a feeling of longing, inside of everyone  

I’m tired of waiting, for the rising sun
And it shows you’re waiting, to release its’ power
And it’s me that you’re wanting, so pull out the fire.                  

Chorus
Radioactive, burning up inside    
Radioactive, how will you survive?    
Radioactive, you know it’s getting to you   
Radioactive, what more can I do.       

 

Don’t believe what others say
Turn and ask, going round another day
Every moment we’ll be together
And every second will last forever.

 

 

Chorus


What’s the flame, without the spark?    
Some of the gleam, glowing in the dark
I’ll hear you whisper la la love
Then let the sunshine beneath the covers.     

 

Chorus

 
Radioactive, radio     
Radioactive, Radioactive     
Radio, radio oh ha oh     
Radio, radio.
