Zero 7

Destiny

Interpreted by Zero 7 (H. Binns, S. Hardaker, S. Barker). Voice: Sophie Barker. Album: Simple Things.

I lie awake
I’ve gone to ground
I’m watching porn
In my hotel dressing gown
Now I dream of you
But I still believe there’s
Only enough for one in this
Lonely hotel suite.

The journey’s long and it feels
So bad, I’m thinking back
To the last day we had.
Old moon fades into the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you.
I’m nearly with you, I’m nearly with you

And when I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny.

On a clear day, I’ll fly home to you
I’m bending time getting back to you
Old moon fades into the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you
I’m nearly with you, I’m nearly with you

And when I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny.
And when I’m weak I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart we are each other’s destiny.

I’ll fly, I’ll fly home
I’ll fly home and I’ll fly home

In the Waiting Line

Interpreted by Zero 7 (H. Binns, S. Hardaker, S. Barker). Voice: Sophie Barker. Album: Simple Things.

waiting line
tell your time
ticking clock
error wants to stop

everyone’s saying different things to me
different things to me
everyone’s saying different things to me
different things to me

woooo…
do you believe
what you see
there doesn’t seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

do you believe
what you see
motionless sweet
nothing is real
wasting my time
in the waiting line
do you believe in
what you see

nine to five
leaving light
every day
stealing time
everyone’s taking everything they can
everything they can
everyone’s taking everything they can
everything they can

woooo…
do you believe
what you feel
it doesn’t seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

do you believe
what you see
motionless sweet
nothing is real
wasting my time
in the waiting line
do you believe
in what you see

ah….
and i’ll show your screen
ah….
it’ll rather not be seen
and i’ll hide away from another day

do you believe
what you see
motionless sweet
nothing is real
wasting my time
in the waiting line
do you believe
in what you see

everyone’s saying different things to me
different things to me (x4)
everyone’s taking everything they can
everything they can

Lost in cheap delirium
Searching the neon lights
I move carefully
Sink in the city aquarium
Sing in the key of night
As they’re watching me

Take me somewhere we can be alone
Make me somewhere I can call a home
‘Cause lately I’ve been losing on my own

Wrapped in silent elegance
Beautifully broken down
As illusions burst
Too late to learn from experience

Too late to wonder how
To finish first

Take me somewhere we can be alone
Make me somewhere I can call a home
‘Cause lately I’ve been losing on my own

Take me somewhere we can be alone
Make me somewhere I can call a home
Won’t you take me home
Won’t you take me home
‘Cause lately I’ve been losing on my own
Won’t you take me home

Making plans for Nigel

Interpreted by Nouvelle Vague

We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs this helping hand
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work

We’re only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a British steel
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel’s whole future is as good as sealed
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work

Nigel is not outspoken
But he likes to speak
And loves to be spoken to
Nigel is happy in his work
We’re only making plans for Nigel

Night vision

From Juan Gris of Paul Eluard, music by Francis Poulenc

By day give thanks
By night beware
Half the world in sweetness
The other in fear
When the darkness takes you

With her hand across your face
Don’t give in too quickly
Find the thing she’s erased
Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain

Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name
The table. the guitar
The empty glass
All will blend together when
Daylight has passed

Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name

Now I watch you falling into sleep
Watch your fist curl against the sheet
Watch your lips fall open and your eyes dim
In blind faith
I would shelter you
Keep you in light
But I can only teach you
Night vision
Night vision
Night vision

Vangelis

China

I take a bottle of wine and I go drink it among the flowers.
We are allways three … counting my shadow and my friend the shimmering moon.
Happily the moon knows nothing of drinking, and my shadow is never thirsty.
When I sing, the moon listens to me in silence.
When I dance, my shadow dances too.
After all festivities the guests must depart.
This sadness I do not know.
When I go home, the moon goes with me and my shadow follows me.

The Supermen lovers

Starlight

I been hanging down the east side
A place for everyone
But then I haven’t seen you for long time
From my home town
You…I see… will see… my dream… your dream… for it… come true
You… I will… will eyes… your eyes… above… above… the room
Thought of you and took up here
Not gonna mess around
Mum and Dad would be so proud
You never let me down
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?

It’s good for me to be someone
A huge man, a superstar
But now you need to be the one
Far from my own ground
You…I see… will see… my dream… your dream… for it… come true
You… I will… will eyes… your eyes… above… above… the room

Thought of you and took up here… Now release your mind
Not gonna mess around…You are what you want
Mum and Dad would be so proud… Time is taking lies
You never let me down.. You are what you mean

Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?

Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
