**SOFT TOUCH FULL ALBUM LYRICS**
 
Listen 2 What U C
lyrics by Peter Brown and Markiza Halim
music by Soft Touch
 
Listen to what you see
Look at what you hear
 
Taste the tasty way you feel
Then everything will become clear
Through my pores I drink my fill
Of what you are to-night  
I can sense your eagerness 
The fragrance of your coloured light 
If Love can ever be this way then
Love is all that I desire      
I Want to love you everyday  
I Want to burn up in your fire

You could be Lancelot 
I be Guinevere
Pierce me with your golden sword
Cleanse me with your white hot fear
Bring the ocean to my eyes
Underneath my heart
A  whole universe of  lies
We  can rip it all apart 

If Love can ever be this way then
Love is all that I desire      
I Want to love you everyday  
I Want to burn up in your fire

Happy Sad 
lyrics by Peter Brown and Markiza Halim
music by Soft Touch 
Here I am         
Sitting happy sad
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Waiting for your love, waiting for a love that's made for two          
Here I am
I just wanna let go
Tired of doing what the others do
I just wanna let go, I just wanna go with you

No-one  will see  us,  lover         
Only  the  sun, the stars and the sea       
No-one  will see us darling           
There'll just be you and just be me                
(spoken) I've got so much to say                   
I hope you'll listen, I hope you'll stay         
I wanna take off all my covers               
I want to play without the others             
It seems to me you're a kindred spirit        
There's love inside you please just give it

Here I am                     
Sitting Happy Sad           
So impatient for you - ou - ou       
Impatient for a love, impatient for a love that's real and true

Why do you hang back, sweet one        
Don't you know it's our only chance       
Real love doesn't come by eve ry day          
Awakening  enfolding in your dance               
(spoken) I've got so much inside                  
Waiting to burst open wide         
I wanna take off all my covers               
I wanna love you  like no other              
I can  see down the river of time        
All your  life is a light divine

Here I am                     
Sitting Happy Sad           
So impatient for you - ou - ou       
Impatient for a love, impatient for a love that's real and true

Here I am            
Sitting happy  sad             
Waiting for  you, waiting for you          
Waiting for your love, waiting for a love that's made for two


Shelter
lyrics by Shahril Eashak Ismail
music by Soft Touch

I wanna be your shelter when the rain comes falling down
Wanna be your shoulder when the hard times come around
Wish I was there for you every time your afraid
Bag of wishful thinking - I guess you just can't wait

chorus:  
Wouldn't want you to walk away
Wouldn't want you to hide your love from me, Baby

Heh, Darling it's the only way I see
Wanna be your lover won't you let me be
Heh, Honey  life's an open road
Let's ride it out together
Together and forever

You say it doesn't matter - but it's easier said than done
Won't be any better when the game has begun
Life's never easy, that's how the saying goes
Don't wanna be crazy, come on and take it slow

chorus:

Strive for the future
With tears of pain and laughter
Won't be any other
Path for all the loosers
Hold back all the sorrow
Pleasure for tomorrow
And as the World grows older
We'll still have each other, yeah

solo & chorus

Wishful Thinking 
lyrics by Markiza and Peter Brown
music by Soft Touch
In my mind I see you so vividly Your dark eyes so dreamy and mild I can hear your voice and the things you so often said But it's not real Only a vision in my head 'Cause you're not here and I know Your love for me is dead It's only wishful thinking yeah yeah If I could have you back again If only we could repeat those good times when You were in love with me yeah (x 2) Around my body when I go to sleep at night I feel your arms so firm and tight Excitement starts to rise I can almost reach those peaks But it's not real Only a space empty and bleak 'Cause you're not here and I know It's only you I seek Chorus: It's only wishful thinking...etc In my heart there's a feeling so special I only need to think of you A feeling of joy spreads over me, over me, over again But it's not real Only a figment of my pain 'Cause you're not here and I know Only memories remain Chorus - then solo But it's not real Only a mad swing in my mood 'Cause you're not here and I know It's doing me no good Chorus...repeat last line: You were in love with yeah x 4 copyright Lemang Music 2002 Lately lyrics by Markiza Halim music by Soft Touch Lately I see You've been avoiding me Lately your eyes They're only telling lies You're acting all confused Looking for some excuse You're afraid I might be getting wise Lately we talk You just break into sighs Lately we try But all the passion dies You're not treating me right We never make it through the night Something tells me it's time to say goodbyes Don't think I can't smell the perfume on you The way you break into a smile it tells You never touch me lately like you used to Now you're in love, you're seeing someone else Tell me why you're so hung about about her Tell me that you're leaving me behind Tell me you're just going round to help her Tell me lies but don't tell me I'm blind Lately in your sleep You're calling out her name Somehow I just know It'll never be the same There's no way I'll stay If that's the way you'll play Being in a threesome's not my game So I'm gonna move on Gonna walk on out that door So you better we warned You're gonna call on me no more I'm gonna get a life You can have your wife I'm not another number on your score copyright Lemang Music 2004

Better World 
I wanna make a statement 
I wanna make it strong 
I wanna tell everybody 
That war is wrong 
Why can't us humans Live in peace with each other Doesn't matter what colour or creed We're all sisters and brothers
I wanna live in a better world (x4) 
It seems a fact that in this world 
There's more than enough to share 
So I want to say emphatically 
That it just asint fair 
When some people live in mansion 
And own three or four BMWs 
While others they go hungry 
Don't even have a pair of shoes 
I wanna live in a better world (x4) 
I wanna make a little point 
To the people up there in power 
That life on Earth is being destroyed 
Hour by hour 
'Cause it gets so frustrating 
When there's nothing you can do 
You wanna tell these guys the truth 
But you can't get the message through 
I wanna live in a better world (x4) 
Human stupidity is driving me insane 
Every time I pick up the paper 
I read about it again and again 
I wanna say how important it is 
For us to open our hearts 
Just listen to the other fellow 
It's a place to start 
I'm not saying I'm any better 
Than those I criticise 
But if we could be intelligent 
Then we could be civilised 
Then we could live in a better world 
Yeah we could live in a better world 
Oh we could live in a better world, 
Yeah we could live in a better world

Love & Music
He: All is dark in the human world 
      So many people suffering 
      To natures dangers we add more ills 
      In a world where men like to kill 
      And rape and steal from their own kind 
      There is no safe place that we can find 
      small wonder that we need to escape sometimes 
      Turn off that T.V. - those images 
      We wanna enjoy, we wanna be pleased 
      And music is the answer - it's the only thing there is 
So we listen to the stereo 
Hear our favourite song 
Playing on the stereo 
Everybody can sing along 
She: Love heals, that sparkle in your eyes 
       As I touch your hand the gentle rise 
       Of joy in your body, in your tender care 
       What is haplpening in the world out there 
       No longer matters, only your sweet face - 
       Now we are living in a different place 
       My flower opens out, I know it's real 
       We discover the secret of how to feel 
       The precious knowledge, the magic of your smile 
       And we can have sweet music, just turn the dial 
And listen to the radio 
Hear our favourite song 
Playing on the radio 
And feel that nothing is wrong 
Love and music bring such relief 
These are the things that make life worthwhile 
A wounded soldier, a child in grief 
Wathc their faces break into a smile 
And listen to the radio 
Hear their favourite song 
Playing on the radio 
And feel that nothing is wrong 
Listen to the radio 
Hear our favourite song 
Playing on the radio 
Everybody can sing along

Crazy Heart 
Oh, crazy heart, why don't you leave me be? 
I want some peace and a loving mind, 'cause I need security 
But I'm tossed on a stormy sea of love and the waves are pounding me            
Oh, oh help me please, yeah 
I just want you to set me, want you to set me free 
Oh, crazy heart, why do you torment me so? 
I'm lost on a lonely river bridge and I'm looking down below 
And I see the water running like the tears in my eyes 
Oh, oh, help me please, yeah 
I just want you to set me, want you to set me free 
Oh, when those feelings well up in me when I'm with her 
What can I hold onto when I'm falling? 
And how am I going to give her love when I don't if she'll be mine?          
Oh, crazy heart, why does it hurt a young man so 
When he has such heavy feelings that he just can't control? 
I'm helpless in the face of love and it's taking me away 
Oh, oh, help me please, yeah 
I just want you to set me, want you to set me free

Move On Down The Line
Move on Down the Line 
Oh, it's time
To move on down the line
Yeah, it's time
When I see your face
And I know you're living
In a different space
Oh it's time
To move on down the line
Yeah, it's time
When I feel your heart
And I know that soon
We must part
Then it's time
To move on down the line
year ago everything was fine
I was living with you, I thought success was mine
But now my life is falling apart
A ruined career and a broken heart
So it's time
To move on down the line
When all your dreams
And all your plans
Disintegrate
Like shifting sands
Then it's time
To move on down the line
And all your friends
You counted on for support
They turn their backs
Don't give you a thought
Then it's time
To move on down the line

MERCY
by Peter and Markiza Brown c. Lemang Music 2004
When you see those pictures 
And the pain in the eyes 
Of the men, women and children
And it makes you realise
When you know you're not sorted
And the worries never cease
You long to make it simple
And have that inner peace
chorus: So we need Mercy, oh Mercy 
           We just need your Mercy 
           When the way is hard and things go wrong 
           Just Mercy, oh Mercy 
           We just need your Mercy 
           To help us a long and sing this song 
To Wake up tomorrow
To see another day
That's all these folks ask for
The luck for which they pray
But we are weighed with problems
We cannot see the light
There's a dark force inside us
Keeping us from right
chorus
bridge: Well you know what's going on 
           And you know it isn't good 
           There's something in your throat like stone 
           And it's cold and it's dark 
           It's brutal and it's stark 
           And you know it's everyone - you're not alone 
Don't want no violence 
Don't want no hate 
Can we put our hearts together 
If it isn't far too late 
'Cause life is so precious 
It's a gift for everyone 
I wanna be forgiven 
And sleep in the sun 
chorus 
coda: There's a road I want to travel 
           A mystery I want to unravel 
           Just spare me my confusion before it's too late 
           We believe there's an arranger 
           And we're not in any danger 
           But it's all an illusion when the world is in this state 
Markiza & Peter Brown c. 2005
