Fast, yeah
Gentleman fast, yeah

Gentleman fast
Yeah king for one day
One of the last
To try to find a way

And now I’m in disarray

You read it in the sky

When you choose the best

Track Name: Back in the CT
You took a little train at the break of dawn
Went in the direction of Babylon
Now you say it ain’t pretty when you’re on the run
But that’s what you wanted for a little fun

Back in the CT
C and I and double E
I’m back in the CT
Tower blocks is all I can see

Yeah now you call your Mama on your last pence
Is it back to the country and the yellow fence?
The country’s so pretty and the girls so young
Ain’t that what you wanted for a little fun?

Back in the CT
C and I and double E
I’m back in the CT
Tower blocks is all I can see

You took a little train at the break of dawn

Just like in a game

It's only the young ones who get to play

Now if you’re off to Minnesota
If you’re about to change the game
Don’t let them tear you down
Don’t let them make you stay

It’s only the young ones, it's only the youth
It’s only the young ones, it's only the youth

It’s only the young ones
Who get to play

All it takes is some persuasion

To make it shine
To make it rain
No one else is the master of thee
I am him and him is me

Who comes easier
To the ones who hold the vision
All it takes is some persuasion

To make it shine
To make it rain
To make it shine
To make it

To the ones who hold the vision
All it takes is some persuasion

To make it shine
To make it rain
No one else is the master of thee
I am him and him is me
Track Name: But I Digress
And if I may count the rays of the days
And if I can find the rose in the hay

There’s no time and there's no place
She says love ain’t no kind of escape

And you spell love just like hate
And you fly doves on the dock of the bay

And all the words on the tip of your tongue
Are not present in any of your songs

And if these men all spoke the truth
Now there’s no time to find the roots

The ones that lead to flowers in May
The ones that thrive on sunshine and rain

And if I may count the rays of the days
And if I can find the rose in the hay

There’s no time and there's no place
She says love ain’t no kind of escape

And you spell love, and you spell hate

And all the words on the tip of your tongue
Are not present in any of your songs

Track Name: What An Illusion
One by one or two by two
A crystal one for a rendez-vous

I thank the Lord for you everyday
No flower lost when you pave the way

What an illusion, when love comes in the way
What an intrusion

Now if I’m the one to pull you through
Now if I’m the one to make you do

The dreams untied by a winter’s day
And a chilly night in the summer’s way

3, 2, 1

What an illusion, when love comes in the way
What an intrusion, when love comes in the way

One by one or two by two
A crystal one for a rendez-vous

I thank the Lord for you everyday
No flower lost when you pave the way
What an illusion, yeah

What an illusion, when love comes in the way
What an intrusion, when love comes in the way
