It’s time to talk about the way that I feel
It’s like a fantasy romance, but it’s real

All the places that I go with you
And the feelings that we show
And the love you’ll never know

You could say I’m still not the man for you
But oh
Build up your walls you know what I’ll do
Well I
I’ll break through

I try to find my way alone, in the dark
I light my lantern with the flame of your heart

And the places that I go with you
And the seeds I’ve tried to sow
But the love would never grow

You could say I’m still not the man for you
But oh
Build up your walls you know what I’ll do
Well I
I’ll break through

It’s time to talk about the way that I feel
It’s like a fantasy romance, but it’s real

And the places that I go with you

It’s time to talk about the way that I feel…

An Intimate Moment with Lazerwülf

Charlie: Did you ever think Lazerwülf would be playing music together again?

Freddie: You know, I think deep down we all wanted to make music. But if a keytarist plays a single note in the middle of the wood, late at night, and no one is around, will anyone hear?

Charlie: Probably not.

Freddie: Our fears exactly. It seemed the world didn’t have a place in its heart for Lazerwülf anymore. But then something magical happened. I was on my way to Brent Cross, when a young lad passed me wearing one of our “Wank the World ’84″ tour t-shirts! Can you believe it?! To me, this was a sign that the youth was once again ready to, as we like to say, “howl.”

Charlie: How did it feel going back into the studio without your lead bassist and dear friend, Geoffrey Follisworth?

Freddie: Recording without Geoffrey was like bangers without mash, tea without digestives, bubble without squeak, d’you know what I mean, mate?

Charlie: No, not really…

Freddie: Well, we missed him dearly on this one. If he could have just kept his nose clean, maybe he’d be with us here today.

Charlie: Cocaine overdose?

Freddie: No mate, bogey overload.

Charlie: Sorry to hear that. Well, have you been making any music since your glory days in Lazerwülf?

Freddie: Well of course everyone remembers my two successful solo albums Freddie’s Outta This World and Starlight Manifesto.

Charlie: …those must have been a bit before my time.

Freddie: Well perhaps you recall a little band called Stink Out?

Charlie: Umm…Nigel, Clive…what have you guys been up to?

Nigel: I can honestly say I don’t remember the last 24 years, whatsoever.

Clive: Gardening, mostly.
