  • 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 street where the heartbeats 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
    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
    Oh 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
