Howard Jones - Cross That Line Lyrics

It's not my fault if you didn't live out your
youthful dreams
Now you want to backtrack, how different it all seems
Love seems to be like alcohol, evaporates before your eyes
The bonds that once were welcome, become the chains we despise

When you cross that line, there's no turning back
When you cross that line, don't come knocking at my door

Everyone has got to take some responsibility
The grass is rarely bluer, but you wouldn't take it from me
Finding out the hard way can be an endless affair
I'd stop you if I could, but then again, I wouldn't dare

I'm telling you when I say these words, that
they're not spoken in bitterness
That destructive emotion has long ago left
and these tears that cleanse the soul and let me
start afresh

When you cross that line, what more can I say
When you cross that line, we are no more
We are no more

    Keeping with the times .....
    Can't live in the past .
    Artists can't keep putting out exactly the same stuff that's not being creative at all .
    Still like some of these tunes .

    Genial Howard, que ricura de melodía,

  8. Kai W.K

    His weakest album. Howard Jones kind of vanished after this album. Sad really. Love H.J. But this album was....

    Graham Cole

    He has always been active up to now with great albums, In The Running, People, Revolution Of The Heart and tours regularly.

    Shawn Williford

    Kai W.K wrong on so many fronts. This album was amazing

    Bruno Primas

    But this album was......Great! I think it holds up very well in 2018.


    I think most of the songs on this album are pretty good, they just don't flow well together at all.

  9. Jacob Ramirez

    This song reminds me of Halo by Depeche Mode.
