I've got your picture in the palm of my hand
And I'm squeezin' it I'm teasin' it
I'd follow you to the edge of this land
But I'm losin' it, confusin' it

This is a man who has lost control
Lost the road to a higher soul
Stop me from fallin' you know I need you

To lift me up
Won't you lift me up yeah
Won't you take me to a place that I once knew
And when you can see
You've always been there for me
I'm waiting for your love

There'll be a time when all our rhythms of love
Are shakin' it we're makin' it
There'll be a place where life is livin' to give
This harmony it will come to me

And when I think of those who love you now
If I had my chances again somehow
Stop me from fallin' you know I need you
To lift me up
Won't you lift me up yeah
Won't you take me to a place that I once knew
And when you can see
Another side of me
I'm waiting for you

I'm not eating I'm not sleeping this tension this worry
You don't call you don't write me
I need your love in a hurry
Teach me, Reach me, Meet me, Beat me,
Tease me, Please me,
Come and seize me

This is a man who has lost control
Lost the road to a higher soul
Catch me from fallin' you know I need you

To lift me up
Won't you lift me up yeah
Won't you take me to a place that I once knew
And when you can see
You've always been there for me
I'm waiting for your love
And when you can see
The changes I've made in me
Well I'm waitin' for, you know I'm waitin' for your love

Howard Jones

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 »
