A1 White Light - I Want You To Know Me
Previously released on White Light (1982)
Johan ‘Gust’ Guns: lead vocals, guitar, lyrics and arrangements

Jo Bogaert: bass
Hélène Corthals: backing vocals, keyboards
Chris Michiels: drums


I want you to know me
I want you to show me your love
even when it’s hard to talk about the night
you‘ve got before, believe me

Take me in your heart, please row me
to another place, another world and show me
how nice it can be to see a new country rising
while it’s easy here to stay but it ’s so hard to do

When you come to tell me I like you man
and I love you, I believe
when you can’t talk and you can’t even say
a single word I believe

When you say that your best friend is gone
so far away from here, I believe
and when I hear people talking ‘bout plans of
working together soon, I believe

The other night when I was talking to my friend
I said: believe me, I wasn’t far from death when I lived in the hotel
the only thing that he could do was take me in his arms
and love me and kiss me and show me the difference between
friendship and love but there is none

It will always be the same thing when you’re watching people
doing different things and you realize that you‘re on your own
the only thing that you can do is understand and make
your wish come true:
to do what you always had in your little mind
and to do what you wanna do ‘cause that’s what you have to do

I want you to know me
I want you to show me your love

B1 Would you
Previously released on None Of Them Are Green (1983)
Jo Bogaert: vocals, guitars, bass, synth, drums, percussion, piano, Linndrum, lyrics and arrangements


I’ve been worrying all day, building up this wall
In this bloody situation, I don’t feel good at all
Would you make me feel, some more at ease
Would you make me be a better man than I am
Would you walk with me in the woods, would you run away
Would you talk with me about things I love to talk about
Would you be one of those, who abandon me
Would you be one of those who do not care at all
I believe in you, I believe, I believe in you
And I shouldn’t do
I believe in you, I believe, I believe in you
‘Cause I need to
Would you tie my hands and cut my tongue
Detain me in your memory
Would you go around and tell everybody
that I’m not the one they once knew
Would you be one of those who abandon me again and again
Would you be one of those, one of those I forget
I believe in you, I believe, I believe in you
And I shouldn’t do
I believe in you, I believe, I believe in you
‘Cause I need to

B2 So Obscene
Previously released on None Of Them Are Green (1983)
Jo Bogaert: vocals, guitars, bass, synth, drums, percussion, piano, Linndrum, lyrics and arrangements
Kris Michiels: drums
Bert Lams: guitar
Peter Cornelis: bass

I’m down, now she has changed herself again
And I’m waiting for the same thing all over again
My friend she said: it’s been so cold
I’ve been looking for fire I cannot find
My friend she said : it’s been so cold, it’s been so cold
You realize, I’m calling her name
You realize
It’s always the same, she wants to be downhearted
Then draws her body, she fullfills it all
She drags up, it’s so obscene
You see the years go by, roll by and roll down
Still hanging, why did I fall
It’s only her, it’s only her
You realize, I’m calling
You realize
I’m down, now she’s changed herself again
And I’m waiting for the same all over gain
My friend she said: I was blinded and I couldn’t hear
My friend she said: it’s been so cold, it’s been so cold
We’ve been fighting, we’ve been hiding ourselves
We ‘ve been running, we’ve changing ourselves
We’ve been running, we’ve been running
We’ve been running, running, running, running
I can’t break through these emotions
I can’t live in these hours of hate
I believe everything she told here
At last I face my faith
Why should I fall, why should I fall
Why should I fall
I say things about love I don’t believe in
I say things I don’t believe at all
I’ll go free, I’ll go faster,
Finally I will go free
I will finally go free
