    Work of Heart

    I. No One Ever Gets Out Alive
    II. Two Lovers in the Moon
    III. We Are the People
    IV. All Us Children (So Sadly Far Apart)
    V. We Are the People (reprise)
    VI. No One Ever Gets Out Alive (finale)

    No one ever gets out alive
    Not you or me
    Can you imagine TV in heaven
    Ghosts on Eleven Alive
    Elvis and Jesus on Johnny Carson
    God on the same 9 to 5
    (Thank goodness) No-one ever gets out alive
    Not you or me
    Under the spreading chestnut in April
    I’m gonna lay me down
    Get on with being one of the people
    Don’t let it get me down
    (Thank goodness) No-one ever gets out alive
    Not you or me

    All of my life I’ve been chasing reality
    All that I write is a dream
    But some dreams come true
    Though it’s only a few
    The most are off-beam
    And all that I see are the ghosts of the robbers
    Who laid all these traps
    Where blind politicians made desperate decisions
    With wall to wall cops
    And I’m so surprised at you
    I never realised that you needed living this way
    I thought you had brains
    But it only remains
    To bid you good day
    And a very good day
    Cos me and my lady know it’s so shady
    We sometimes try turning away
    But where can we go
    Where we just wouldn’t know
    There’s only today
    But the road’s so long and longer
    Like a dream adrift a stone
    Where she and I together lie
    And then apart are thrown
    Two pebbles in the wheeltreads
    Of passing afternoon
    Shed by time and circumstance
    Two lovers in the moon
    And through the passing years love
    I will quest for you and I
    I know you are my lady
    You’ll believe me by and by
    By and by

    Falling here with her
    Into the evening breeze
    Over her shoulder
    Before the sunset seas
    O my love
    Must we leave this place
    To believe
    That all the time
    We slowly climb
    Towards the vision
    We are the people
    Precious time began
    We are the people
    When all is said and done
    We are the people
    We are everyone
    We are the people
    And gone
    We don’t have precious time my love
    To hide in high rise crime above
    These politics of slime my love
    We only have each others eyes
    To see the world

    (Can I read your hands
    Are there any lines
    Do we carry on
    Are there any signs?)

    I’m looking to build a home
    With you
    If I ask you to be part
    Of me
    And true
    In the heart
    That I will always be
    In you
    And I trust my true love
    You in me
    And I’m looking to build this dream
    Come true
    Into the deep of deepest
    Heart to heart
    With you
    And all us children
    In this present world
    So sadly far apart

    Can you hear me

    As all the time
    We slowly climb
    Towards the vision
    We are the people
    Precious time began
    We are the people
    When all is said and done
    We are the people
    We are everyone
    And gone

    And power
    Cannot be held
    For longer than splitting an atom
    Or longer than batting an eyelid
    Or longer than being a bee
    On a flower

    Any by and by
    I’m gonna see your face
    In another sky
    As we leave this place
    With an old invitation in your smile
    No prosecution or any trial

    And under the spreading chestnut in April
    I’m gonna lay my case
    With you in my arms as two of the people
    Head out to inner space

    (Thank goodness) No one ever gets out alive
    Not you or me

    I didn’t say no-one ever got out
    But no-one ever gets out alive
    Not you or me
