SAFE





-

safe

Hard to find a way to get through
It’s a tragedy
Pulling at me like the stars do
You’re like gravity
Even if the wind blows
It makes it hard to believe

How ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real
And If you lost your way
I will keep you safe
We’ll open up all the world inside
I see it come alive tonight
I will keep you safe

Doesn’t even matter to you
To see what I can see
I’m crawling on the floor to reach you
I’m a wreck you see
When you’re far from home now
Makes it hard to believe

So how ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real
If you’ve lost your way
I will keep you safe
Well open up all your world inside
Til you come alive tonight
I will keep you safe

We all fall down
We all feel down
Cus rainy days and summer highs
The more we pray the more we feel alive

How ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real
How ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real

If you’ve lost your way
I will keep you safe
Well open up all your world inside
So you come alive tonight
I will keep you safe

Well I will keep you safe
I will keep you safe

Westlife – Beautiful Tonight

Well I thought I’d seen it all
From beginning to the end
Yeah I was the great pretender
Always alone again

Well a light came shining in
When you took my breath away
Now I know I’ve waited all my life
To do what I feel today

So tell me I’m dreaming
(Oh woah)
Coz I can’t hold back these tears I cry
And you never looked more beautiful tonight
(Oh woah)
So if I’m dreaming
(Oh woah)
Don’t wake me up I’m so alive
Wish you could see what I see
Through these eyes of mine

Now we’re standing face to face
I can hear the words we’re saying
This is now and will be forever
In this moment we could stay

So tell me I’m dreaming
(Oh woah)
Coz I can’t hold back these tears I cry
And you never looked more beautiful tonight
(Oh woah)
So if I’m dreaming
(Oh woah)
Don’t wake me up I’m so alive
Wish you could see what I see
Through these eyes of mine

Woah woah oh

So don’t wake me up
Don’t let me down
My heart beats for love
And love lifts me higher
Right into the clouds
I’m flying so high
With tears in my eyes
And I have never, ever felt this alive

So tell me I’m dreaming
(Oh woah)
Coz I can’t hold back these tears I cry
And you never looked more beautiful tonight
(Oh woah)
So if I’m dreaming
(Oh woah)
Don’t wake me up I’m so alive
Wish you could see what I see
Through these eyes of mine

So don’t wake me up
Don’t let me down
My heart beats for love
And love lifts me higher
Right into the clouds
I’m flying so high
With tears in my eyes
And I have never, ever felt so alive

WESTLIFE c'est fini ......ils se séparent'



We're looking forward to seeing our fans one last time':
Westlife announce they are to split after next year's tour


They are the chart-topping Irish boyband who have delighted fans for the past 14 years.
But now Westlife have announced they will split following their tour next summer.
Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan confirmed the split this evening.
Scroll down for video Split: Westlife have announced they will be splitting after their tour next year
They said: 'After 14 years, 26 top ten hits including 14 number one singles, 11 top 5 albums, 7 of which hit the top spot and have collectively sold over 44 million copies around the world, 10 sell-out tours and countless memories that we will forever cherish, we today announce our plan to go our separate ways after a greatest hits collection this Christmas and a farewell tour next year.

'The decision is entirely amicable and after spending all of our adult life together so far, we want to have a well-earned break and look at new ventures.'
The quartet added that they believe their greatest hits album, due for release this Christmas, is the perfect way to say goodbye to their fans.

They said: 'We see the greatest hits collection and the farewell tour as the perfect way to celebrate our incredible career along with our fans. We are really looking forward to getting out on the tour and seeing our fans one last time.

'Over the years Westlife has become so much more to us than just a band. Westlife are a family. We would like to thank our fans who have been with us on this amazing journey and are part of our family too.

'We never imagined when we started out in 1998 that 14 years later we would still be recording, touring and having hits together.

'It has been a dream come true for all of us.'
Belting it out: Westlife, seen here last month in Hong Kong, were known for their soulful ballads including If I Let you Go and Flying Without Wings
Westlife first came to fame in 1998, along with former bandmate Brian McFadden who left the group in 2004.
During their long career, they accumulated a staggering 14 number one singles - the third-highest in UK history along with Cliff Richard.

They have ten studio albums under their belts, as well as a Greatest Hits album released back in 2002, and their upcoming compilation record due for release on November 21.
Continuing in the industry: Shane Filan is hoping to pursue a solo career, while Mark Feehily is keen to write songs for other artists
Westlife's most famous singles include ballads such as Flying Without Wings and If I Let You Go, as well as uptempo tracks such as their cover of Uptown Girl.

Many of their big hits over the years were cover versions and they capitalised on a swing revival by recording a Rat Pack-style album Allow Us To Be Frank.
It was claimed in a report this morning that Shane, 32, is planning to embark on a solo career while Mark, 31, is also hoping to use his talent to write songs for other artists in the industry.
According to The Sun, Nicky, 33, is hoping to venture into the radio DJing world, while Kian, who is set to welcome his first child with wife Jodi Albert later this year, is looking for more television opportunities.

TESTAMENT DU GROUPE
19 octobre 2011

Après 14 ans, après avoir vendu 44 millions de disque dans le monde,

Le groupe se classa 14 fois numéro un des Charts Britanniques avec leurs différents singles, battant tous les records derrière Elvis et les Beatles.

De nombreux souvenirs que nous chérissons à jamais.

Nous annonçons aujourd'hui notre projet visant à nous séparer, après une collection Greatest hits pour noël et une tournée d'adieu l'année prochaine.
La décision est entièrement prise à l'amiable et après avoir une partie de notre vie d'adulte ensemble, nous voulons avoir une pause bien méritée et de regarder vers de nouveaux horizons.

Nous voyons la collection Greatest Hits et la tournée d'adieu comme étant la façon idéale de célébrer notre carrière incroyable avec nos fans. Nous sommes vraiment impatients de commencer la tournée et de voir nos fans une dernière fois.

Au fil des ans Westlife est devenu tellement plus qu'un simple groupe. Westlife sont une famille. Nous tenons à remercier nos fans qui ont été avec nous dans ce voyage incroyable et font partie de notre famille aussi. Nous n'avions jamais imaginé lorsque nous avons commencé en 1998 que 14 ans plus tard, nous serions encore en enregistrement, en tournées et toujours ensemble. Il a été un rêve devenu réalité pour nous tous.

The feuding, fights and fatigue that split Westlife after 14 years at the top
By Eoin Murphy
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2052341/The-feuding-fights-fatigue-split-Westlife-14-years-top.html

Add to My Stories Share If you had seen the four lads sipping pints in a Kuala Lumpur hotel bar, you might have thought – if you couldn't see their faces – they were just four Irish lads, abroad for work, catching up over a beer; chatting about going home, about the families, wives, partners and babies they had left behind, about the future.

What you couldn't have known – even if you could see their faces – was that these four fresh-faced young men with pints in their hands had just agreed to break up the most successful boyband in decades.

In doing so, they were waving goodbye to millions of euro; closing the book on a 14-year collaboration that had brought them 14 No.1 singles, 44 million album sales, 10 sellout tours – and riches beyond the dreams of (as their manager once labelled them) 'some cute culchies and a Dub'.
Down the hatch: From left, Kian Egan, Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, and Mark Feehily reached their decision to quit in Kuala Lumpur
They were also turning their back on a £5m deal from RCA, the giant record company that also boasts talent such as Alicia Keys and David Bowie. And, of course, they were breaking the hearts of millions of fans worldwide – and none more devoted than those at home in Ireland.

But the truth is that the break-up of Westlife, while a shock to their devotees, had been brewing for more than a year. The group had been torn apart by concerns about their direction; a wedge had been driven between them by Simon Cowell's record label, Syco; and they were finding separation from their families increasingly unbearable. Despite all the money, the adulation and the achievement, Westlife, quite simply, had had enough.

More...'I promised I would never lie... but you were awful last week': X Factor judge Gary Barlow turns brutally honest with his act Frankie Cocozza
Tulisa and Louis Walsh turn on X Factor favourite Misha B as they accuse her of 'backstage bullying'

While all bands experience various strains and stresses on the way – U2 recently admitted nearly breaking up during the recording of Achtung Baby in 1991 – Westlife had proved remarkably resilient. They had easily weathered the loss of Bryan McFadden... to the extent that it was he who was begging to rejoin them last week. The fact that three of the members – Shane Filan, Mark Feehily and Kian Egan – were all from Sligo had given them a strong bond, without ever suggesting that the fourth man, Nicky Byrne, was an outsider. They were still selling out Croke Park and their lustre appeared undimmed.

During 2010, however, they began to have serious problems with their longtime label, Syco – owned by Simon Cowell, the most powerful man in pop. Even the fact that they were managed by Louis Walsh, a close friend of Cowell with an unparrallelled track record, didn't help.
Family man: Nicky with wife Georgina and twins Jay and Rocco
Westlife felt Cowell and his label had lost interest in them and were unwilling to co-operate with the singers' plans. The band felt the last two Westlife albums, Where We Are and Gravity, contained some of their best work, so good they felt that there were three singles on each – but the label seemed unwilling to back them up.

The first release, Safe, limped into the British charts at No.10, their weakest-ever position. Beautiful Tonight had been earmarked as the second single but Cowell pulled the plug on any further releases.

'This was when the cracks started forming within the band,' said a well placed source. All four felt Gravity was an 'incredible' album but Cowell wouldn't release any more singles. Cowell knew Westlife fans would buy the albums anyway so why waste money on videos and promotions for singles? It was February and the British leg of the Gravity tour was under way but only one single had been released.

'Mark was very upset by this, having written on four tracks,' said a source. 'He desperately wanted the group to take control back from the Syco and made it clear to the others that if they didn't leave, the band was doomed. So they phoned Louis and told him the situation. The future of the group and their friendships were in jeopardy.'
Family affair: Singer Shane Filan with his wife Gillian
As the band began touring Britain earlier this year, the atmosphere had deteriorated to such an extent that the four members were not leaving their dressing rooms. Because of increasing frustrations, tempers were often lost backstage before gigs. Shane and Mark had chartered a private plane to fly them home to Sligo each night after shows – allowing them to make it home no matter what happened. Nicky was spending more and more time working with 2FM on the radio and was in constant demand. Kian's girlband, Wonderland – whose members included his wife, Jodi Albert – was on tour with Westlife, and the dual responsibility demanded 20-hour days for the singer, further fuelling stress. Shane, on the other hand, was preoccupied with his family as his daughter began school in Sligo.
At times, phone calls between the members ended in shouting matches, with Mark threatening to walk out on a number of occasions. Then, on March 14, a deal was struck with the record label – and it seemed peace had returned. After 10 years with Simon Cowell, Westlife were released from their contract. They would finish the Gravity tour and afterwards become free agents.
The singers had gained control of their music and could plan their own future. 'It was like a blood transfusion for the four of them,' reveals the insider.

Within days, they had lined up another label, RCA – like Syco, still part of the Sony family. Louis used his connections to set up a meeting, and it looked like the group's fortunes were changing. As the band's future became more secure, relations continued to thaw between the singers.

On March 25 they played the LG Arena in Birmingham, a venue they had performed at many times before. That evening, they met RCA to negotiate the terms of the album that would be Westlife's next step.

Break: Bryan McFadden announces his departure from the group during a press conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin, 2004
As Wonderland warmed up the crowd, a party of five executives listened attentively as Mark, Shane, Nicky and Kian discussed a greatest hits project. Louis waited nervously on the phone, eager to find out how the meeting had gone.

Each member of the band would pick three songs for the record, along with four new tracks. These tracks would be worked on with producer John Shanks in LA and released as three separate singles. The record executives doodled on the paper tablecloth in the canteen. By 7pm, a deal was agreed – one album, a greatest hits tour and then a two-year break.

A grinning Shane was unable to contain his excitement as he talked of the new contract, sinking back in his dressing room chair as a broad smile crept across his face.

'It's unreal and we are just over the moon right now to have done the deal,' he said.'We are still in negotiations with RCA over the finer points but we have signed with them for the Greatest Hits. It's a trial period because we aren't going to sign our life away to someone we don't know. We need to see that this is the right place and home for Westlife.'

It was a statement that would prove prophetic – and one that hinted Westlife were no longer content to sit back and let executives manage their lives. The Gravity tour ended with four sold-out shows in Dublin's 02, after which the band flew business class to LA and recorded their new tracks: Lighthouse, Beautiful World, Wide Open and Last Mile Of The Way. Mark and Shane co-wrote two of the tracks. But Shane's foreshadowing became piercingly relevant in July, when manager Louis Walsh received a call from RCA. The label wanted to extend its relationship with Westlife – offering a £5m deal for a series of albums.

Split: The line-up before they became a foursome
Louis was ecstatic: but the band was not. Intent on following their hearts and their own paths, Westlife saw a downside to the deal.

'Louis called the boys to give them the news expecting to hear excitement,' a source said. 'But the new contract would have them back recording in 2012 and touring again in 2013.

'They were exhausted. They had their hearts set on taking a break. Life on the road had changed. And while the conditions had greatly improved – they enjoyed the best tour buses, five-star hotels and first-class flights – their personal situations had altered dramatically. They weren't twenty-somethings any more – they had responsibilities.

'They were about to embark on a six-week tour of the Far East and the thought of working solidly for the next two years was too much to bear. Kian was going to be a father, Shane and Nicky were desperately missing their families. Mark, whose writing had taken him in a different musical direction, was keen to do other projects.'

They decided to call Louis and reject the deal. Their longtime manager already had an inkling that they might do exactly that. And he also suspected what would happen next.
Four-piece: Westlife perform live on stage at the Odyssey in Belfast, in March 2004. It was the first time the boyband have performed without Bryan
After spending literally all of their adult lives together, the four band members were keen to focus on their own families and careers – hoping to enjoy personal time that was not always overshadowed by the professional. The boys began to ask each other whether they should carry on as a band at all.
Shane was already homesick when a cyber stalker threatened his family at home in Sligo. His decision was crystallised – he wanted to leave.

Simultaneously, Mark was dealing with his own cyber stalker. He was forced to call British police after threats were made against him and his partner, Kevin McDaid. He also wanted to quit.

Kian was now focused on becoming a father with his wife Jodi, and he had just landed a job as coach on the new RTÉ talent show, The Voice Of Ireland. He wanted to leave, too.

Nicky's stint on 2FM as a guest DJ had tapped into something of a talent and he found himself inundated with job offers. He was also homesick, missing his wife Georgina and his twins, Jay and Rocco. He wanted to leave.

So on that fateful night in Kuala Lumpur earlier this month, the friends decided to invoke the pact they had made when Brian left in March 2004. They had decreed that if one member wanted to leave, they would disband. And now that all four were ready to leave Westlife, the decision was obvious – and easy.

'It was their decision, all theirs,' Louis told the MoS. 'That was always the way with Westlife and I had to respect that. Could they have gone on for longer? Most definitely. I would have liked them to take a break and come back with a covers album and a tour.

But they all want to do other things. They have ended it on their terms and remain close friends. Had they gone on longer, who knows if that would happen?

'When the statement went out this week, I know that all four of them were hurting at the upset they caused their fans. But at least they will be able to give them a proper goodbye. And who knows what will happen down the line?'

And even if they choose to do nothing but enjoy the comforts of family life, they will still be able to bask in their riches – and in the fact that five kids from unfashionable parts of a little country called Ireland became the biggest thing since the Beatles. Not bad for a few cute culchies and a Dub…
