background
"Another example of "the big pop style" that we had embraced. The style of the song suited us perectly for the time and ensured that our sound could travel globally" - Jim




lyrics
Don't you look back on a big lost world - "Crying out tomorrow."
Don't you look down like the heroes say - "Come tell me all about it."
Take me to the streets where the bonfires burn.
Take me in your arms and I'll fade away,
When I hear you say what you got to say.

"Anywhere you go, you know I'll still be waiting."
All the things she said - she said.
"Little darling close your eyes, there'll be no compromising."
Of all the things she said - she said.

Throw me to the streets where the heartbeat's beating - "Beating all around me."
To the peaceful revolution and the perfect wave surround me.
Tell me 'bout the ocean moving in slow motion,
I see it glitter in the sun then it's freezing in the moonlight.
Never look back,
Never look back,
Never look away.

"If freedom comes and goes you know I'll still be waiting."
All the things she said - she said.
"You've fought the fight so long, no surrender to temptation."
Of all the things she said - she said.

Stars will fall out for you.
Luck will surrender.
I'm calling out to you.
"Oh to be near you in the first morning light."
I'd be with you, I dream about you.
"If I could leave here, I would leave here tonight."
I'd be with you, I'd stay with you tonight.

"Anywhere you go, you know I'll still be waiting."
Of all the things she said - she said.

"When I look into your eyes, I see a new day rising."
Of all the things she said - she said.
"Through the eyes of love and to never know what hate is."
Of all the things she said - she said.
She said "This is our time."
She said "This is our place, this is the space my heart wants to be."
"Little darling close your eyes, there'll be no compromising."
All the things she said - she said.
