Word We Don’t Need

The Ultimate Dream.  An anti-war song lyric by Vince.  Written in 1994 [in 20 minutes]

We are heading for a new age.
A time long overdue.
A dream for all our fathers.
And now it’s coming true.

Our forebears gave us hope.
We’ve taken their ideas.
We’ll see it lasts forever.
And live in peace for years.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

Together in our small world.
We’ve learnt to get on well.
It’s heaven on this planet.
We’ve eliminated hell.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

We can’t forget the old days.
That’s the secret of success.
To lose what we have built up.
Would leave us in a mess.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

War is a word that we don’t need.
(to fade)

Set It Free

A song lyric about forbidden love by Vince

Written in 1991

Running my eyes up and down your body where my hands would rather be.
Feeling you close within my soul. Searching for that ecstasy.
Can’t bide my time ’til the moments right.
Wanting to do, settling for sight.
Just take a chance on us and arouse this dynamite.

Stealing a glance or touching your hair. Remembering the look in your eyes.
Saying the things the way you do. Seeing through your little disguise.
You want me, I know that’s true.
We are both planning what to do.
If only we could say the things that we both knew.

I want you and you know it.
Let me take you to a place we both can be.
Now’s the time to show it.
Let’s take the next stage and then you will see.
You can hold me. Let your spirit free.
Is this love? Or is it just our fantasy.
Set it free. Set it free.

Make special dreams come true tonight for all those tears you cried.
My hands are cold but your body’s warm and time is on our side.
I’m aching in the places that you haven’t got.
An’ you are feeling deadly hot.
Let’s entwine our loving and give it our best shot.

I want you and you know it.
Let me take you to a place we both can be.
Now’s the time to show it.
Let’s take the next stage and then you will see.
You can hold me. Let your spirit free.
Is this love? Or is it just our fantasy.
Set it free. Set it free.

The moment’s good and we are sharing time, with blood gushing through my veins.
I’m reaching out to be within. You’re holding on my reins.
You’re searching out for a new height.
Breath so heavy but head is light.
Bodies a’ shaking but our soles are in full flight.

Musical crescendo

We’re feeling good with me in you. A moment true and pure.
With peacefulness embracing us. We’re wanting for no more.
We’ve taken chances on or love attack.
Seen the light with no going back.
Broken down the barriers…
…Now we’re on the right track.

I want you and you know it.
Let me take you to a place we both can be.
Now’s the time to show it.
Let’s take the next stage and then you will see.
You can hold me. Let your spirit free.
Is this love? Or is it just our fantasy.
Set it free. Set it free.

I want you and you know it.
Let me take you to a place we both can be.
Now’s the time to show it.
Let’s take the next stage and then you will see.
You can hold me. Let your spirit free.
Is this love? Or is it just our fantasy.
Set it free. Set it free.

Lynda

A song lyric by Vince

Written in 1982

Dedicated to a very special person in my life, who shall remain nameless.

You lay there, you’re crying. I’m thinking ’bout my dying.
How I’ll live ’til then and never see you gone.
You think I cannot love you. Though I serve you, always hold you.
And believe I’ll stay around you for so long.

I never want you to leave me. I’m hoping this so dearly.
I fear the thought of being so alone.
And if I wake up and you’ve gone, you know it won’t be so long,
‘Fore I come running for you back upon the ‘phone.

Oh Lynda you’re my love, my only dearest love.
I’ll love you for one hundred thousand years.
And if you don’t believe me Lynda, listen to my words.
And sense me when I wipe away your tears.
I’ll serve you forever, and a day and another.
I’ll always help you fight away your fears.
Oh Lynda, what can I say but I love you today,
And I’ll love you through the months and through the years.

So hold your head up high and please don’t make me cry.
‘Cause I do when you are sad and you are lonely.
From the day that we first met you know I could have bet,
That you, my girl, would be my one and only.

Oh Lynda you’re my love, my only dearest love.
I’ll love you for one hundred thousand years.
And if you don’t believe me Lynda, listen to my words.
And sense me when I wipe away your tears.
I’ll serve you forever, and a day and another.
I’ll always help you fight away your fears.
Oh Lynda, what can I say but I love you today,
And I’ll love you through the months and through the years.

You made my life worth living, your caring and your giving.
I’m never lonely now I must confess.
And if thanks were made in time you can have the rest of mine.
We’ll live together now and forever more Lynda…
…I love you

Oh Lynda you’re my love, my only dearest love.
I’ll love you for one hundred thousand years.
And if you don’t believe me Lynda, listen to my words.
And sense me when I wipe away your tears.
I’ll serve you forever, and a day and another.
I’ll always help you fight away your fears.
Oh Lynda, what can I say but I love you today,
And I’ll love you through the months and through the years.

Oh Lynda you’re my love, my only dearest love.
Believe me now ’cause I mean it. I do…
