Victory Day – Tom Cochrane

She’s got her reasons, she’s got her pride
Though she’s beaten black and blue
One fine day she’ll be walking outside
She’ll turn to see what is true
Won’t draw no curtains, be hiding no way
On that Victory Day

She’s stuck it out, she’s hung in tough
She won’t be running away
He says it will change, but each time it does
It starts up all over again
He wants the thunder, the crashing of waves
The guts, the glory of victory parades
She says it just never happens that way
On that Victory Day

Victory Day, Victory Day
There’s no rockets flaring, there’s no loud display
If you walk with me we’ll get there someway
On that Victory Day

In the sun, walk by the water, in the sun
She says life isn’t big, not it’s kind of small
Made of small moments, they’re all strung together
If you don’t look out, you might miss them all
Then it’s just passed you on by like the weather
He wants that thunder and crashing of waves
The guts, the glory of victory parades
She says I’ll give you much more than you’ll take
On that Victory Day

Victory Day, Victory Day
There’s no rockets flaring, there’s no loud display
If you walk with me we’ll get there someway
On that Victory Day

And he’s gotten so close and he won’t let it fade
And the reasons still haunt you for the mistakes you made
She says let it go, ’cause it’s time for a change
But he’s still a little boy trapped between pages
Time to walk away from him
She said “I’ll take you some place where I know it will change”

Victory Day, Victory Day
There’s no rockets flaring, there’s no loud display
If you walk with me we’ll get there someway
On that Victory Day, on that Victory Day

(Repeat)

Ocean Blues (Emotion Blue) – Tom Cochrane

Ask any stranger
Out on the boulevard
Who is alone
They’ll say it’s me
In any country
This road leads everywhere
A road that leads down to the sea
CHORUS

Colour me blue
When the lights are bare
Sing me the tune
That won the war
Sing me the song
I’ll go anywhere
And I’m blue. I’m ocean blue

I read your letter
It must have been a hundred times
Before the words fell from the page
It’s almost D-Day
A crowd gathers in the square
But I have no flag to wave

CHORUS
CHORUS

I read your letter
Then I threw it in the sea
Said-there is no flag to wave

I’m blue, blue, I’m ocean blue
Yes, I’m blue, blue, I’m ocean blue
Yes, I’m blue, blue, emotion blue (repeat)

Napoleon Sheds His Skin – Tom Cochrane

The streets are covered in chalk
The shops are boarded up
The bodies are carried back down from the square

He begins to wonder
If it always was this hot
Or is it just the clothes
That he now wears

Napoleon sheds his skin
In the summer when the sun is high
He never knows when to quit
When to stop…
Or when to say die

Pick the bones, get a tan
Or wander
Underground
She would not have left him anyway
Wait by the sea, wait in the sun
As if the time
Stood still
Did he get involved
In whichever side
That paid

Napoleon sheds his skin
In the summer when the sun is high
He never knows when to quit
When to stop…
Or when to say die

…And time stands still behind
The distant gates
Time moves on outside in the sun
Then he wonders which side he’s really on

Then he doesn’t care,
It’s so grey in there
He just wants to get back to her…

Napoleon sheds his skin
In the summer when the sun is high
He never knew when to quit
When to stop…
Or when to say die…

She waits for him by the wharf
By the sea where they used to go
She sings a song that they’d sing
Then waits for the echo…

Na…poleon
Sheds his skin
Na…poleon
Sheds his skin
Na…poleon
Sheds his skin

I’ve got to get out of here
Can she save me
I’ve got to get out of here
Can she save me
I’ve got to get out of here…
Can you hear me…

Mad Mad World – Tom Cochrane

I was standing with my paper there
Minding my own news
For everything that someone said
Someone else had a different view

I watched the whole thing there
Unfold upon my tv screen
“A new world order is on its way”
Well pass the popcorn please
You don’t mean to tell me
No one here is going to get hurt
When there’s folks at home who
Eat dog food they can’t afford a shirt
Sure find out real fast who’s a sitting duck
When it’s a. . .

Mad mad world… shake your hands
And say good luck..it’s a
Mad mad world..I can not believe this stuff. . .it’s a
Mad mad world…getting madder every day….
Mad mad world…get involved and they’ll blow you away
Sure find out real fast when you’re a sitting duck
That it’s a mad mad world

A little man sits up way high
Way above the crowd
Can you make them dance real fast
Can you make them cheer real loud

Money doesn’t talk it swears
It sounds like a big machine
A voice on high says you reap what you sow
Just keep your own nose clean

More smoke fills up the air
More toxins up the creek
That’s when the cash it changes hands
So we turn the other cheek
Sure find out real fast just when you’ve
Had enough when it’s a…

CHORUS

He walks into the office and
He finds a big pink slip
It’s says “you are no longer needed here
So take a good long trip”
You can take your gold watch and
Stick it you know where
Cause he’s fired up and he’s jacked up and
He’s loaded up for bear

CHORUS
