Lyrics
:

I want to believe in the heavens above me
I want to have faith in all I see
To put my trust in God and man, oh lord
To know that there is more to life

I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what I can never find
I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what a life time cannot satisfy
Satisfy

I want to see what cannot be revealed
I want to understand my dreams
To know that there will be an answer, oh lord
To know that the day will follow night

I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what I can never find
I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what a life time cannot satisfy
Satisfy

I want to believe all the fighting is over
I want to have faith in a lasting peace
To know that all will be forgiven, oh lord
To know in love we never die

I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what I can never find
I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what a life time cannot satisfy
Satisfy

I want what the world can't give me tonight
I want what the world can't give me tonight

Mike Peters Notes
:”This album is 76 minutes long and to make it work there has to be different atmospheres and textures. There has to be musically challenging pieces; not just for the band but for the listener. I wanted to make a record where there is always something to discover with every play. I feel this song will become a real grower. I wanted to avoid the obvious, the ‘rock ballad’ that was latent in the song’s initial structure. I wanted to give this song a depth and a substructure to which the listener can keep coming back to. A musical form, to go hand in hand with the tone of the lyric, and so, by using instrumentation not normally used in rock ‘n roll, (like the classical guitar), I hope to have achieved the right effect. There is no simple way to fulfil the need of the song’s lyric and in that same way, the musical arrangement must also remain elusive.”
(21st Century Fanzine #2)
