Into your smile my past went fadin' Inside your voice, my mind was sheathed In lost lagoon, we waited, wadin' Along the streets we went paradin' Never looking back to where we'd been Autumn temptress, sundown angel Inside your blood you aren't so young I came to you a loving vandal And heard your heart and touched your tongue Day became a lighted candle Sky fell down beneath your sandal In your eye I began to spin Winter harlot, moontime lover I can't speak when I feel this way Don't keep your feelings undercover Tell me what you want today Don't leave me in the air to hover Sing it out don't make me suffer Don't be ashamed love is no sin Springtime woman, sunrise girl I am hiding behind the sea Trick or treat, the Hallowe'en world Hide and seek but you can't catch me I won't chase you until you hurl Your wing to me, and make me twirl You're alive underneath my skin Wings Although you've spoken many times before, A sight of birth he leaves you by a door. And now you know he doesn't understand. And all you need is the warmth of his hand. And if he'd smile your loving blood would dance,
One silent kiss leaves you in a trance. And now you know you cannot live alone, But you will find your future is unknown. One day the questions rise. On wings of chance you fly. And on that day your laughs and tears will die, And fall as free as seabirds climb the skies. And you will love when love comes your way. And when it comes there's nothing more to say. And now you know he doesn't understand, And now you know you don't need his hand. One day the questions die, On wings of chance you fly. Song of the magician When I sing I can't bring everything on the wing Flying down from dizzy air To the ground because I care You will be love and your love will live When I smile I beguile all the while every mile As I walk across the sky Of the clockwork of your eye You will be love and your love will live Casting spells from the well I can tell you the bells listen to my magic voice Learn the tune of children's toys You will be love and your love will live When I die do not cry hear my sigh passing by After I have turned to win I will try to help you then You will be love and your love will live *** Thanx a lot to Merve for this one *** Strange street affair under blue Just for you with your open hands Waiting for the touch of man Clutching with your blackened gloves
You try to capture all the doves That flee into The forest before you You wish to catch and cage me now I wonder if you remember how Hard it was to say the names Of mirror dreams and cheated games And on the wall You framed your first lover Your form intrigues me with the glow I'll remember you I know Though I forgot to lock the chain Around you with a prayer for rain To bring the call To drive you back into my bed Ahhh.... She turns away Telling me to follow for a while Ahhh.... She waits You'd be touched if you would touch But you only reach and taunt Will my taste stay grey and blue If I try to turn from you Valentine Melody You came to me with fire inside Your movements and your pride And asking to be rescued from The pain you had become I tore apart the prison and I hid you in my hand In the blue light of Christmas-time Santa Claus was kind I wonder if you'll ever grow Oh far enough to throw Away the lies of no and yes And love my quietness
Or will you only freeze and frown and lose what you have found? In the white light of Easter seas'n will you live again? Today the coin is in the air And we are here and there And where and when have caught us in The web of violence I pray to all the world as one that day will bring the sun In the scarlet light of Valentine's our paper hearts are blind. Aren't You The Girl Aren't you the girl who used to call me names? Aren't you the girl who used to play at games? Weren't you the one who said she'd never fall? Now you're the one who's cryin' not so tall. Yes you're the one, Shall I throw you a crumb? Shall I come and pass you by? Would that make you want-a try? Shall I come and kiss your lips? Would that make your rain slip? Shall I come and dry your eyes? Will that make you realize? Oh I know what it's like. It's happened many times to me. Oh do you ache inside, Do your eyes want-a cry? Do you want me back again? Aren't you the girl who used to call me names? Aren't you the girl who used to play at games? Weren't you the one who used to run and hide? Now you're the one who's cryin' way inside. Oh I know what it's like. It's happened many times to me. Oh do you ache inside, Do your eyes want-a cry? Do you want me back again?
Song Slowly Song ( Larry Beckett ) With your beautiful hair And your sixteen years You kissed me as I lay still If I can see you never, Then I'll sleep forever All my lonely love to kill. It Happens Every Time It happens every time. Give my love, She leaves me behind. It happens every time. The sorrow makes me lose my mind. If she'd only be as true as I am, And listen to my love that's sayin', Oh baby won't you stay mine Your lovin' makes me feel so fine And someday baby you'll find My love was gentle and kind. Someday you'll know that leaving me was wrong. But don't bother all that time is gone. And it happens every time. Now I know it's not worth the tryin' So baby don't turn around Let my tears fall to the ground. If she'd only be as true as I am, And listen to my love that's sayin', Oh Oh Oh Oh.... Song For Jainie You've got the untortured mind of a woman Who has answered all the questions before. You've got the free-givin' ways of a woman Who has kicked all the heartache out the door. And Jainie, don't you know? Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'
Jainie, don't you know? Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin' Yes, I truly love to be with you If I wasn't with the one that I'm with. Yes, I truly love to lie with you If I didn't have to give what I give. Jainie, don't you know? Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin' Jainie, don't you know? Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin' I brought to you my tired plans and weary faith to you And with a smile you took me in and showed me love again Now it has to be say good-bye or stayin', I don't know But remember please I gave you love that's only mine to give And Jainie, don't you know? Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin' Jainie, don't you know? Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'. Grief In My Soul I've got ten thousand troubles, a million woes. I got grief in my soul nobody knows. I got heartaches, I got stingin' water fallin' out of the sky. I got a long lost lover, got a reason to die. I got ten thousand troubles, a million woes. I got grief in my soul nobody knows. I got sorrow. I'm in a storm that'll spare no travelin' man. I fear tomorrow. Got a love that died long before it began. I got ten thousand troubles, a million woes. I got grief in my soul nobody knows. Got a cold chain. I got rain fallin' on my head from above. I got a bad pain. I got a gal don't know the meaning of love. I got ten thousand troubles, a million woes. I got grief in my soul nobody knows.
I got heartaches, I got stingin' water fallin' out of the sky. I got a long lost lover, got a reason to die. I got ten thousand troubles, a million woes. I got grief in my soul nobody knows. She Is ( Larry Beckett ) She is the day that gives me time to live and linger love my life Till night comes on with sundown scythe to end the puzzled pantomime She is a day of love She is the bridge on which I wait to watch the river 'neath me flow All spinning surging far below along the deep and ending straights She is a bridge of love She is the air I breathe entranced, awake, asleep in storm or calm A wind to wash my lifted palm, a sky that calls me out to dance She is the air of love She is the day through which I walk toward the bridge where she stands She is the air I breathe to sing, she is a smile without demands She is a smile that keeps me warm with matchless laughter, eyes ablaze A mischief mystery she plays upon the flute of early morn She is a smile of love She is the air of love She is the day of love *** Thanx a lot to localizer for this one *** Understand Your Man Well let me tell all you pretty women One tiny word of advice Tell you pretty woman One tiny word of advice Just do me one favor Won't you understand your man You gotta wake up in the mornin' Keep your lovin' daddy by your side
Wake up in the mornin' Keep your lovin' daddy by your side Just do me one favor Won't you please understand your man Well let me tell you, Miss Molly Tell you 'bout my lovin' back home I got a sweet little woman You know that she'd never make me roam She's the only woman that I know ever understand her man Goodbye And Hello No Man Can Find The War ( Larry Beckett ) Photographs of guns and flame Scarlet skull and distant game Bayonet and jungle grin Nightmares dreamed by bleeding men Lookouts tremble on the shore But no man can find the war Tape recorders echo scream Orders fly like bullet stream Drums and cannons laugh aloud Whistles come from ashen shroud Leaders damn the world and roar But no man can find the war Is the war across the sea? Is the war behind the sky? Have you each and all gone blind: Is the war inside your mind? Humans weep at human death All the talkers lose their breath Movies paint a chaos tale Singers see and poets wail All the world kows the score But no man can find the war
Carnival Song The singer cries for people's lies He will sing for the day to bring him night The circus burns in carnival flame And for a while you won't know my name at all But sing and dance and love for pennies and gold The juggling clown smiles to me And every frown we agree is glad The nighttime comes to bring the bums From Bowery heat to crimson streets of wine But magic lands will never touch our sands Your children smile in single file They learn mistakes that others make They see although they cannot know The needs they'll need to have their greed grow wild But dance and sing, for others bring the shame And for a while you won't know my name Pleasant Street You don't remember what to say You don't remember what to do You don't remember where to go You don't remember what to choose You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down All the stony people Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes I can't hesitate And I can't wait For Pleasant Street The sunshine reminds you of concreted skies You thought you were flying but you opened your eyes And you found yourself falling back to yesterday's lies Hello, Pleasant Street, you know she's back again You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down All the stony people Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes I can't hesitate
And I can't wait For Pleasant Street At twilight your lover comes to your room He'll spin you, he'll weave you 'round his emerald loom And softly you'll whisper all around his ear "Sweet lover, I love Pleasant Street I wheel, I steal, I feel my way down to kneel" All the stony people Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes I can't hesitate And I can't wait For Pleasant Street You don't remember what to say You don't remember what to do You don't remember which way to go You don't remember who to choose You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down Hallucinations ( Larry Beckett ) I saw you walking Only yesterday When I ran to catch you You disappeared And the street was gray The candle died Now you are gone For the flame was too bright Now you are gone I heard you laughing With your laugh of gold When I called out to you Silence returned And the air was cold The castle fell Now you are gone
No more rings the bell Now you are gone I found a letter On the day it rained When I tore it open There in my hands Only ash remained The castle fell Now you are gone No more rings the bell Now you are gone I felt you breathing As I fell asleep When I reached out to touch you No one was there And the night was deep The candle died Now you are gone For the flame was too bright Now you are gone I saw you walking Only yesterday When I ran to catch you You disappeared And the street was gray The castle fell Now you are gone No more rings the bell Now you are gone I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain O I never asked to be your mountain I never asked to fly Remember when you came to me And told me of his lies You didn't understand my love You don't know why I try
And the rain was falling on that day And damn the reason why The Flying Pisces sails for time And tells me of my child Wrapped in bitter tales and heartache He begs for just a smile O he never asked to be her mountain He never asked to fly And through his eye he comes his love And tells her not to cry She says, "Your scoundrel father flies With a dancer called a queen And with her stolen cards he plays And laughs, but never wins" O the child dreams to be his hands In the counting of the rain But only barren breasts he feels For her milk will never drain As I die I can't remember Where I saw the rain: Could it be that her laughter Drove me down again? Charming dancer will you stop, Stop and talk to me? Is there someone else you feel In your dreams? you will, you see: In midnight gazes I've found you far from me: If you lead me on Please leave me down O Flying Flying Fish Please flutter by my door: Yes you can drink my lies If first you read my eyes: Each one is titled "I'm drowning back to you": I can't swim your waters And you can't walk my lands: I'm sailing all my sins And I'm climbing all my fears
And soon now I'll fly O I never asked to be your mountain I never asked to fly Remember when you came to me And told me of his lies You didn't understand my love You don't know why I try And the rain was falling on that day And that's the reason why Sweet lover, will you come back And love me for a while? Please take my hand Leave all your fears behind I've been gone too long Now I'm home to stay Please don't leave me Again this way Please come home Once I Was Once I was a soldier And I fought on foreign sands for you Once I was a hunter And I brought home fresh meat for you Once I was a lover And I searched behind your eyes for you And soon there'll be another To tell you I was just a lie And sometimes I wonder Just for a while Will you remember me And though you have forgotten All of our rubbish dreams I find myself searching Through the ashes of our ruins For the days when we smiled And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes And the silence of our words And sometimes I wonder Just for a while Will you remember me Phantasmagoria In Two If a fiddler played you a song, my love And if I gave you a wheel Would you spin for my heart and loneliness Would you spin for my love If I gave up all of my pride for you And only loved you for now Would you hide my fears and never say "Tomorrow I must go" Everywhere there's rain my love Everywhere there's fear If you tell me a lie I'll cry for you Tell me of sin and I'll laugh If you tell me of all the pain you've had I'll never smile again Everywhere there's rain my love Everywhere there's fear I can plainly see that our parts have changed Our sands are shifting around Need I beg to you for one more day To find our lonely love Everywhere there's rain my love Everywhere there's fear Knight-Errant O whither has my lady wandered? I'll search until I know I've found her One green day she left her wings
And cut away her childhood strings But dropping smiles along the trail She left a trace I will not fail O whither has my lady wandered? I'll search until I know I've found her When I catch my sudden maid I'll deck her out in lace and jade I will take her to her room I will take her to her room I love her upstairs I love her downstairs But I love my lady's chamber O whither has my lady wandered? I'll search until I know I've found her Goodbye and Hello ( Larry Beckett ) The antique people are down in the dungeons Run by machines and afraid of the tax Their heads in the grave and their hands on their eyes Hauling their hearts around circular tracks Pretending forever their masquerade towers Are not really riddled with widening cracks And I wave goodbye to iron And smile hello to the air O the new children dance ------ I am young All around the balloons ------ I will live Swaying by chance ------ I am strong To the breeze from the moon ------ I can give Painting the sky ------ You the strange With the colors of sun ------ Seed of day Freely they fly ------ Feel the change As all become one ------ Know the Way The velocity addicts explode on the highways Ignoring the journey and moving so fast Their nerves fall apart and they gasp but can't breathe

Before he came I felt him drawing near; As he neared I felt the ancient fear That he had come to wound my door and jeer, And I waited in my fleeting house "Tell me stories," I called to the Hobo; "Stories of cold," I smiled at the Hobo; "Stories of old," I knelt to the Hobo; And he stood before my fleeting house "No," said the Hobo, "No more tales of time; Don't ask me now to wash away the grime; I can't come in 'cause it's too high a climb," And he walked away from my fleeting house "Then you be damned!" I screamed to the Hobo; "Leave me alone," I wept to the Hobo; "Turn into stone," I knelt to the Hobo; And he walked away from my fleeting house Happy Sad Strange Feelin' I got this strange strange feelin' Deep down in my heart I can't tell what it is But it won't let go It happens every time I give you more than what I have But now all I need is a little time to sing this song And I think we're gonna find a way to lose this strange feelin' All around I feel ya, darlin', feel ya darlin' When you're home all alone Oh, don't you need somebody to talk your troubles to Ah, lord I know I wanna catch the morning train, lord the first thing Oh, I wanna hear you say we're gonna take that strange feelin' Oh, take it all away Well it's just like a mockingbird a-singing on a hillside Churping at his morning song But don't you weep don't you fret don't you wail don't you moan

And sometimes honey In the mornin' Lord, I miss you so.... Love from Room 109 at the Islander (on Pacific Coast Highway) I was lost without a song without a melody You came into my hotel life You made my room a home Ah now, mama, don't you know what you done Ah, you made the sunshine in the city Oh, you warmed my heart You changed an old man filled with pity Back to a child again Ah now, mama, can't you see what you done So tell me darlin' if the feeling's wrong Don't waste another day Lord, the saddest thing I've ever known Was to watch it die away Ah now, mama, don't you lie don't you lie Oh, how can my giving find the rhythm and the time of you Unless you sing your songs to me The smell of your sweet skin does entangle my dream Oh may I stand here awhile living your smile Oh, how could you ever know what you've done You warmed my heart when I was so all alone But all I have to give Are my dreams of coming and going forever Inside the rivers of time you'll find me waiting For you to find peace in your mind So we can love again I feel what you feel, If you feel what you feel, And I see what you see, If you see what you see, So it goes on and on On it goes, on and on It's my heart and your heart,

Is he mama's little man? Does he help you when he can? Or does he ask about me? Just like a soldier boy I been out fighting wars That the world never knows about But I never win them loud There's no crowds around me But when I get to thinkin' 'Bout the old days When love was here to stay I wonder if we'd ever tried Oh, what I'd give to hold him.

Sing a Song for You In my heart is where I long for you In my smile I search for you Each time you turn and run away I cry inside My silly way, just too young to know any more In my world the devil dances and dares To leave my soul just anywhere, Until I find peace in this world I'll sing a song everywhere I can Just too young to know any more The wind covers me cold The starry skies all around my eyes Far behind the city moans Well worthy of the people there Oh, the psalms they love to hear So let me sing a song for you Just to help your day along Let me sing a song for you One I've known so very long Oh, please could you find the time.
Lorca Lorca Let the sun sing in your smile Let the wind hold your desire Let your womans voice run through your veins Let her be your blood don't feel ashamed She's your home when no one wants you She'll give you life when you're so tired She'll ease your fears ah when you're a stranger She's born to give faith to you Oh, just to you You're just a man on death's highways It's life you owe you're here to praise it If love flows your way then be a river And when it dries just stand there and shiver Oh, let the sun sing in your smile
Let the wind hold your desire And let your womans voice run through your veins Let her be your blood don't feel ashamed It's her life you owe I owe you love Anonymus proposition Love me as if someday you'd hate me For what i give is yours without a name To fill your night long needs Only as long as you say This time you'll learn that love is just a slave To where the heart beats stronger This time you'd need in turn or promise forever I could have been a boy from long ago you've left forgotten And lately you've wondered where he's gone Oh, it's never hold to me not as long as love lives in this house Take me after all you've lost and never wanted Somewhere between all the nights you've tatsted wine of men forever Untill they left you to wake alone Aw, but it's never said to me Not when the years live in these hours And darling love me as if someday you'd hate me For what i am is here in front of you longing to know How long you'd care for me This time you'll learn that love is just a slave To where your heart beats stronger That's where you stay I had a talk with my woman I had a talk with my woman late last night And she reassured me everything was alright And time hung still like a falling rain Now i know at last that my love is safe Ah but when i go away my love i leave Lord i'm but half a man without her by my side She's this memory that i hold all around She's this dream that i always hold to believe
I wanna go upon a mountain And sing my love and sing my love I wanna sing it high, sing it down low Then i'm gonna know how long it's gonna last Then i'm gonna know how long it's gonna last Well you know your moses, oh lord he lost his way Ah, and your jesus don't remember the words Well then i guess it's just you and me brother All alone in this cold world All alone in this cold world Ah, you gotta go upon a mountain And learn to sing your love, learn to sing your love You know i can sing it high, sing it down low Then we gonna know how long it's gonna last Then we gonna know how long it's gonna last Hard rain, sweet rain, fall a little while longer Wash down the city skies Lord bring the streets alive Make it like it was long before i was born Driftin' When there's wine in your belly Love rhythm's on your tongue For you are a woman And each man has been too young But for me you were a lover Gently under your cover Your sheet reeks of odours Oh i came here to hold and be held for a while I've been drifting like a dream out on the sea I've been drifting in between you and me Everytime i think about you I can't remember what i said or did Was right or wrong, you know i just don't remember All i wanna be is what you mean to me All i wanna be is what you mean to me
Late last night as i dreamed in dizzy sunlight I thought i heard your bare feet up the stairs Just like a fool, just like a fool I've been drifting Like a dream out on the sea I've been drifting in between what used to be Nobody walkin' I left my baby standing in the backdoor crying I left my baby standing in the backdoor crying She said "you got a home as long as i got mine" She said "you got a home as long as i got mine" And nobody walking, nobody talking Ever pay the price i owe her Ah, there ain't nobody living, nobody giving Ever pay the price i owe her But sometimes you gotta turn your back Ah, sometimes you gotta turn your back Just to show that little girl That there is something she's gonna lack Just to show that little girl There's something more that you desire Nobody walking nobody talking Ever pay the price Nobody living, anybody giving Ever pay the price i owe her I don't need it to rain I don't need it to rain I don't need it to rain Oh to rain Well i know you've been turning tricks honey Up and down the avenue And i've been trying to tease you Oh, just to see what you'd do I don't need it to rain I don't need it to rain No more

Starsailor Come Here Woman You caught me staring so gently You tease me and turn away Unlike the young ones Your movements you savor Like a tango My hideaways are longing for you You shyly conjure These moments surrounding Keep me tonight All your practiced ways you secretly entice me Come here woman! Like an old window I need a little shade Like an old tomcat Lord I love to parade Like a broken old man Lord I need sun Ah, I need you darlin' Cause I just ain't done While wheel waters set Now my blood yearns Your mouth opens woman Give me broken lies When you don't feel pain Let me smell your thighs, mama Let me drink down a little rain, man While we're drifting cold Out beyond the seas We wither time into a coil of fear I Woke Up Now the sun sits on my hand O where are you ? Walking the wind I fly above the shore of the town To the hills where I can hear
The harbor bells ring slavery Where the fortune teller sighs to me O I see your woman in the raw Ride a mare of stone and howl I woke up While morning built The world with light, Crossing their hearts, Twelve sailor boys all stood in a ring Round our bed, And from the grass a dancer rose, Shivering, Oh the sailors pointing Out to sea And the dancer diving Up the sky 'Til we forgot the day Monterey ( Larry Beckett ) Under a loop of stars in the vulgar cold The dead airport lay By the pebbles of the highway Through the snail clouds You soared to your lover I hurried away my darling With a howl in my throat. Hiding inside the weeds In the orange grove, The black rooster crowed Through the hollow of the midnight. With my shot blood, With stains on my fingers, I run with the damned, my darling: They have taught me to laugh. Moulin Rouge ( Larry Beckett )

Did I dream you dreamed about me Were you here when I was flotsam Now my foolish boat is leaning Broken lovelorn on your rocks For you sang "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow" Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow Well I'm as puzzled as a newborn child I'm as riddled as the tide Should I stand amid the breakers Or should I lie with death my bride Hear me sing "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you" "Here I am. Here I am, waiting to hold you" Jungle Fire Somewhere old memories Echoed from the street in a Crying hole Just a song from long ago When I lost my easy gods to the Harlem insect laws I heard your baited moans and the passing cars and the swirling songs and the black man's bones Through the walls and the stalls and the cackling calls You were there You were an island behind the sun Yes an island Where my love could live and life breathes From deep inside Deep deep deep deep inside Mama Lie, I love you like a jungle fire Starsailor I am a bee out in the fields of winter And though I memorized the slope of water, Oblivion carries me on his shoulder: Beyond the suns I speak and circuits shiver, But though I shout the wisdom of the maps, I am a salmon in the ring shape river.

I'm just waiting for the sun to shine Ain't got no heart to sell you Ain't got no time to tell you All the answers you came to hear I just came down from the mountain And now you know me when I was just a child in your heart I been waiting so long to say it I been losing but I been chosing I've been living on borrowed time Trying to pay back the debts I owe you Ah but I never show you why the river could be a woman Why the sky will ever open I just want to be here tonight love I wanna take myself a plane back home I got a sweet little woman oh but I'm gone now And I wonder what my little darling does for love She's walking all alone and here I'm trying to get back home Hey tell me is there a sadder place to be right now Ah but now I could here those mountains ringing all around me I feel it won't take too long to get through it and sing a song Ah but I don't know if my love can last, oh no You know I just came in on the rail Ah damn to keep me another shirt tail and I been trying to make it ever since oh love I got a name but mama don't you know I'm ashamed I been out walking now I ain't been too in much talking Oh Lord my heart's got too much to yield Yes but I bring you in now darling Remember when I was so strong how the liquor and women wore me down I'm on my knees begging oh please Hear the mountains ringing, hear the birds a singing Feel the sun shine on your hands Just smell the river flow well now I know my love is growing hear the way the children smile Makes you glad that you been chosing Which time you been losing Ah ain't it great being alive
The earth is broken Oh now my brother's been taken away Gone are the old times when we used to say Oh a woman was younger she knew what to do Oh but I look around me, now that's not so I'm lost on that open road no peace do I find Maybe the wind'll blow a melody and ease my mind But soon love is broken, they'll take you away Oh the wars they been growing as no relief And the old men who ruled them oh they're just like thieves They rob from the sunshine, oh the air ain't so clean Our rivers are dirty where once we could see A smile from your lady friend looking down Look at that river hey did you ever shiver Well the earth is broken there is no one to save I remember quite freely only yesterday Ah the letter that I read from you read this way Take care lonesome Timmy, ah don't you start Thinking you're the only one year that's gone Out on your lonesome road hey lend a hand to your friend Yes he's just as lonely and the wind keeps you cold Remember the rivers that once did flow clean Ah sometimes I wonder how this old world keeps spinning 'round All the old folks have gone west, Lord preparing to die All except for a few of us hangers on Living each day with trivial hearts We just stop once in a while cry over the news In some foreign far city your brother's shot down Because there was a reason a gun had a hand And the old man killed youth, squeezed down its hope Now I'm just waiting brother waiting for the land Soon in my country there won't be a friend Each one is trying so hard to defend That one one last heartbeat before he's tugged away
Lost in the mechanized efficient world logical skies Ah but no song was written on without a tear in your eyes Are we the last ones, the last ones to try Who do you love Now I woke up this morning yes there was rubbling in my mind I was thinking about my baby I left her so far behind Oh now I wonder Lord I wonder deep in my heart If this is ever gonna stop this feeling mama don't you undestand Oh no no no no Oh the driver on that engine oh Lordy ain't no friend of mine Ah he done took away my baby oh and left her so far behind Ah but sometimes in the morning oh sweet lover don't you know Your boy's gone to his room yeah Ah I remember all about the good times hiney And I forget all about the rain now Well you never did it for me mama How do you want your rolling done, oh yes You know I do believe you wanna be rolled be rolled be rolled from sun to sun hey now darling Don't you know I cross that burning desert on my knees Bring my pay cheque home every Friday night Mama don't I treat you right Yeah that green rocky road ah you gotta promenade now You gotta promenade, mama who who do you love Ah who do you love, who do you love Who do you love, who do you love Brother did you ever run up the mountain Lord I went up to the top Say your lover from above Run down to the valley listen to it ring Lord Lord listen to it ring from above You gotta run to the river run to the river Run to the river cleanse your soul Cleanse your soul, cleanse your soul I think that sooner or later we'll make it or break it I mean your brother I mean it ain't matter what the color Lord we both gotta get out of here We gotta rise up Lord away from the skin Lord up there a while

Troubadour As she walks near me my blood feels the chance All spinning and swirling it yearns for the dance To become part of me poor one to take part of her Don't say that tomorrow will bring me her love Don't let me wait for words undestined from above Let me laugh through her fingers and smile through her hair Let me love the one I see for I know that she's there For tomorrow and today aren't here anymore Lalalalala Sing songs for pennies tip my hat couldn't get many All around the city are the troubadours Lalalalala Sing songs for pennies tip my hat couldn't get many All around the city see the troubadours Singing songs sadly sing songs so lonely All around the city see the troubadours As she steps near me my blood feels the chance All spinning and whirling it yearns for the dance To take part of her fair one To know part of her Wayfaring stranger (I)
I am a poor wayfaring stranger Lord a travelling through this world of woe And I find sickness toil and danger Lord everywhere everywhere I go I'm going there to see my brother I'm going there no more to roam I'm going there, ah it's just over Jordan I'm going there to my new home One of these mornings and it won't be long Woa, men will rise and stand side by side And hand in hand they're bound for glory Their foes will fall on freedom's side I'm going there Lord to find my brother I'm going there, no more to roam Oh, I'm going there, it's just over Jordan I'm going there no more to roam You got me runnin' Ah, if you've been passing through Lord the swinging gate Chances are you look behind you and wonder where you are And wonder where you are Ah to know another man's heart to know him through his pain To know him through his happiness Then you can truly smile, then you can truly smile No it's not not just what you say No it's mostly how you feel it And it's not how much you spend No it's mostly where you lend it Ah I look around me every morning So many love so many still on top of that thing And I have to wonder truly wonder truly wonder You care much about life to fall off and start again Ah keeps me runnin' it keeps me hidin' It keeps me peepin' but Lord don't you know sometimes you find it It keeps me slippin' and slidin' It keeps me runnin' and hidin'
Peepin' and a findin' Ah I know I don't have that much love to give Oh but I'll find a way to try If that gate ain't swinging low I got the key in my heart to try Ah if you been passin' through that swingin' gate Chances are you looked behind you and wonder where the hell you been goin' Where you are and why you'll carry on. Lord your mind wants to die but your heart keeps yelling back "Buddy keep going" Those voices from the sea keep calling out: "Don't let us down" The wind's gonna howl and the baby's gonna cry Keep runnin' and hidin' now, peepin' and a findin' Slipping and a slidin' runnin' and a tryin' Keep on tryin' Ah now the room keeps buzzin' yes It's like a beehive in the forest when the bears are down Lord it hates to be caught hates to be brought down I ain't gonna suck the life from you Lord I got my roots back home And I just tear on borrowed time Just thought I passed by and say hello friend It don't feel the same way I do Think after that You see I'm just a rusty henge Keep on runnin' keep on listen to your heart Ah listen to your heart Don't take the sparkle out of those little children's eyes Let them run and play let them run and play Soon enough to be just like you Wayfaring stranger (II) I am a poor wayfaring stranger Travelling through this world of woes Lord and I find sickness sickness, oh toil and trouble oh Everywhere everywhere everywhere I see Lord I'm going there to find to find my brother They told me that he'll be waiting there
I'm going there Lord it's just over Jordan Oh I'm going there to my new home My new home
