Howard Jones (born John Howard Jones, 23 February 1955, Southampton, Hampshire, England) is a British musician, singer and songwriter. According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, "Jones is an accomplished singer-songwriter who was a regular chart visitor in the mid 1980s with his brand of synthpop. Jones, who was equally popular in the U.S., appeared at Live Aid".Allmusic journalist, Stephen Thomas Erlewine adds, "Jones was one of the defining figures of mid 1980s synthpop. His music merged the technology intensive sound of New Wave with the cheery optimism of hippies and late 1960s pop. Jones racked up a string of hits in the mid and late 1980s, before he retreated into being a cult figure in the 1990s". more »

Bring me down to earth
Take this weight from tired shoulders
Kiss me tenderly
Let me drown in waves of your love

You part the trees so I
Can cherish things that matter
Your single voice sounds through
A room of din and chatter
Oh take me home
When the streetlights shine above

Safe in your arms
So simple to me
Safe in your arms
Oh so temporary
Safe in you arms
Oh so tenderly
Not one of the lonely tonight

Flying hectically
Through a cloud of buts and maybes
Passing frantically
Over nights and days unended

You turn my head and laugh
When my world turns sour
You give me strength to pass
Through my darkest hour
Oh take me home
When the streetlights shine above
