Track Listing
"Something Beautiful Remains"
Something beautiful remains

Album: Wildest Dreams - 1996

Tears will leave no stain
Time will ease the pain
For every light that fades
Something beautiful remains

We're living in a world of stars and dust
Between heaven and all that surrounds us
We're travelers here, spirits passing through
And the love we give, is all that will endure

Hey now, what we had is gone
But I still remember you
Just like a rose after the rain
Something beautiful remains

[Chorus:]
Tears will leave no stain
Time will ease the pain
For every light that fades
Something beautiful remains

Now the darkness falls, the sun's going down
One by one, the stars are coming out
Tide comes in, washes footprints from the sand
As one day ends, a new day must begin

Hey now, though we are apart
You're here forever in my dreams
Hey now, love is lost and gained
(What you gonna do about it, what you gonna say)
Something beautiful remains

[Chorus]

And you wonder sometimes how we carry on
When you've lost the love you knew
But it's alright, it's alright
To your own heart be true

[Chorus]

"Addicted To Love"
Addicted to love

Single: Addicted to Love - 1988 (originally from Robert Palmer)

The lights are on but you're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your body sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes
You can't eat, you can't sleep
There's no doubt you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh, yeah
It's closer to the truth, you know
You're gonna have to face it
You might as well face it, you're addicted to love

You see the signs but you can't read
You're running at a different speed
Your heart beats at double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine
One track mind, you can't be saved
Another young love is all you crave
And if the sun left you
You don't mind if you do

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh, yeah
It's closer to the truth, you see
You're gonna have to face it
You're gonna have to face that you're addicted to love

You might as well face it, you're addicted to love

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
