Lovely, you're always lovely
A vision
You were the one
Now I am stuck inside a memory
You forgot about our destiny
You buried me
Didn't you?
Didn't you?

Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drowning deep inside your sound

You're always floating
A vapor
That I couldn't see
Here I am stuck inside a yesterday
Everything has given way
You fell from me
Didn't you?

Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drowning deep inside your sound
Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drown in love and memories

Maybe I am a crowded mind
I watch your eyes glaze over
Stared down at the floor
You were amazing to me
I was amazing to you
But here we go again

Didn't you
Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drowning deep inside your sound
Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drown in love and memories

She takes it deep to the heart right from the start
she talks softly over a glass of wine.
Now and again she's more than a friend, why don't
you just throw me that line.
It would be great if she'd dedicate just a minute
from her precious time.
I'll give it a while, but that's not my style, now how
is that a crime?
Everyone says that I'm wild.
Pardon my French but I still know my child.
And that was the day I told her I needed some
time.

Well I began walking when she was still talking I'm
looking for that exit sign.
Pardon my face but I'm leaving no trace cause I
really haven't got the time.
Well I began thinking and my heart is just sinking
and I'm looking for that place to go.
Isn't it sad that she'll treat you so bad, but you
never really let her know.
And everyone says that she's crying.
But I can't forget all the time I spent trying.
And that was the day I told her I needed some
time.

I know, I know what it feels like to be alone.
I know, I know what it feels like to be at home.
I like, I like stopping to say hello.
It's my life, my life why can't we take this slow?
Why can't we take this slow?

Well I've been through these phases, I've walked
through these mazes.
I'm sick and I'm a little tired.
It sure isn't fair but I'm not aware of the patience
that's required.
If I could have kissed her every time that I missed
her I still would be out the door.
But now and again, I sure need a friend now isn't
that what she's for?

And everyone says that I'm lying,
But I can't forget all the time she spent crying.
And that was the day I told her I needed some
time.

I know, I know what it feels like to be alone.
I know, I know what it feels like to be at home.
I like, I like stopping to say hello.
It's my life, my life why can't we take this slow?
Why can't we take this slow?
Baby take it slow.
It's my life.
My life.
Why can't we take it slow?
Baby, take it slow.

I took this girl out last night and we left around 12,
We walked along lonely streets and got to know ourselves,
I like to read - she likes to write,
she likes to sleep - and I like to stay up all night,
My friends say I'm crazy and I agree,
but that's okay that's the way I like to be

Hey girl come with me and let yourself go
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go

I say now hey girl, come with me and let yourself go,
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go
I said hey girl, come with me, and let yourself go, go, go, let yourself go

we went out late that night and we danced through the night
I was holding on to her and she be gripping it tight she was
But she didn't care, and I didnt mind
I was unaware that she liked to act so kind,
My friends say I'am crazy and I agree,
but thats okay cause thats the way I like to be

hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go,
just let yourself go

Hush little baby dont say a word
i would like to give you evrything that you deserve
ill give you my heart ill give you all my soul
you can have all my money if you like you can control
in my mind i miss you every night that your not here
oh i just want to sit around your life and breath your air
and if i can not have you i just dont want to live
oh i got so much i would like to give

hey girl, come with me and let yourself go, come on, come on
hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go,
just let yourself go

Hey girl,but baby it all here just let yourself go
Hey girl,but baby but darlin let your self go
Hey girl,but baby but darlin i need to know
Hey girl,but my sweety but my lovely id love to let you go
Hey girl,but im comeing back for you and im looking to you girl

I'm not quite sure how I got here.
A minute passed and I'm on my feet.
I never knew life could taste so good.
I need a little minute, just a moment to breathe.
No matter where I go, no matter who I see
Well I'm remind of my earlier days.
No matter where I roll, no matter what I know
Well I'm reminded of my earlier ways.
But now I keep asking myself.

Wouldn't it be the best damn day if we all took time to breathe?
Just one stolen paragraph in the book's written history.
Don't you sometimes wonder why people are afraid to smile?
Don't look down we're gonna come around and it always come to back, crack time eventually.
Just ascend with me.

I'm not quite sure when I woke up.
The night flew by as I lay asleep.
Who ever knew that life could feel so good?
I need another minute.
Just a moment to breathe.
Well I'm reminded of my ealier days.
No matter what I know, no matter where I roll
Well I'm reminded of my earlier ways.
But now I keep asking myself.
Wouldn't it be the best damn day if we all took time to breathe?
Just one stolen paragraph in the book's written history.
Don't you sometimes wonder why people are afraid to smile?
Don't look down we're gonna come around and it always come to back, crack of time eventually.

Wouldn't it be the best damn day?
Wouldn't it be a wonderful day?
Wouldn't it be a glorious day?
If we all took time to smile, made just a minute for you and me.
Wouldn't it be the best damn day? [repeat 4x]

An easy operator on the side of the road
A million dollar man in a lower-class home
Chopping trees for needs of a spiritual kind
Forever getting low while he tried to be high
He was an early morning eagle flying through from the fire
Barely getting over forget getting by
But it's all the same to Billy Kincade
If he had to do it over he would do it the same

Living in the end
He was living in the end

Polly and her pity wasn't pretty at all
She concentrated fully on the shine of the star
But your pennies, just a pension
She never let go
They always dominated everything that she owned
She was a queen with means, there wasn't nothing to wear,
And Daddy gave her everything she ever gon' need
But now it's all the same for Polly the Vain
If she had to do it over she would do it the same

She was living in the end
Yeah, living in the end

Are you all right darling, all right now?
You'll never be, never be the same.
Are you all right darling, all right now?
Don't you ever wanna, ever wanna see some change?

You didn't see it coming
that's the tale of his life
Easy operator laid to rest in the night
He had to take the hit it's always the same
That's the waste you see in killing Billy Kincade [?]
That's the waste you see in killing Billy Kincade [?]

Are you all right darling, all right now?
Don't you ever wanna, ever wanna see some change?

Are you all right darling, all right now?
Don't you ever wanna, ever wanna see some change?

Are you all right darling, all right now?
Don't you ever wanna, ever wanna see some change?

What can you say about tomorrow?
What do you know about my life?
What do you say to your daughter?
What do you tell to your wife?

a la la la la eh eh
a la la la la eh oh

Say Mr. Brown how about your daughter.
Do you know what she’s done with her life?
And do you agree that we are lost here?
Well, among the lost we shall survive.

a la la la la eh eh
a la la la la eh oh

What’s that you do when no one’s looking at you?
Where’s that you go after the show?
What’s that you say?

a hey hey hey

Say Mr. Brown about the weather?
Is it gonna rain on my parade?
Is your soul as light as a feather?
Am I flat out going insane?

a la la la la eh eh
a la la la la eh oh
a la la la la eh eh

Say Mr. Brown how about your brother.
Do you see what he’s done with his life?
And while you’re chasing him out that front door,
He’s chasing you with a butcher knife.

a la la la la eh eh
a la la la la eh oh
a la la la la eh eh

a la la la la eh eh
a la la la la eh oh
a la la la la eh eh

What’s that you say when the rain won’t go away?
What’s that you do when no one’s looking at you?
Where’s that you go after the show?
What’s that you say?

What’s that you say when the rain won’t go away?
What’s that you do when no one’s looking at you?
Where’s that you go after the show?
What’s that you say?

I just heard the world, is breaking down into bits again.
Tell me what am i to do?
And you just want me to stay, here.
So i'm just gonna stay, here.

Home, the last resort.
Build a castle with an iron door.
Lock the window, pull the shades, the hazed out sun won't help anyway.

If the world is crumbling down, I don't wanna be alone.
NO, locked up in this place.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

Fear, is holding me here.
The television got me seeing unclear.
Bravery, my neighbor, moved away.
Cause I don't need to be courageous today.
NO, locked up in this place.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

Nothing's gonna save me.
I'm hanging from the nearest tree.
Nothing's gonna save me.
I'm hanging from the nearest tree.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night

There was a man on the road bout an hour ago
and he was looking for a ride to New Mexico
Well we was driving by
Way too fast to know
Well then we got to the place on a high speed chase
There was a girlie in the corner with a plastic face
And then she disappeared without a trace
I say without a trace

Well now we're kicking back and we're sipping beers
And there's a man telling stories about his inner fears
We was all choked up and too close to tears

Well then we moved on up to some margaritas
And we started making faces at the senoritas
Playing drinking games, but they were all too drunk to beat us

Well now, my car broke down about an hour ago
We were heading on down to New Mexico,
But, well we did not see the gas was low


Hey, hey, I said the gas was low
the gas was low
the gas was low
the gas was low
Hey, the gas was low. Hey.
Lalalalalalalalaaaaaaaaa

We got back to the party
We been on the road we're kinda dirty
I seen this girl I said you're mighty purty.

Well I said hello, bout an hour ago
We were heading on down to the big grass show,
But hey, we did not see, the gas was low

[Chorus]

About an hour, about an hour ago
About an hour, about an hour ago
About an hour... about - an hour ago.

God, give me one shot and I'll break right through
I am starting to be brand new

Rome is burning you can taste the embers
I am walking hard on Spanish Stairs
My Saint was silence rapping on the door
Grown up defiant wanting so much more

Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say I say

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't want to be a stranger

Walk with millions, a delicate few
So sad how loneliness just follows you
New York City streets and avenues

Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say I say

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't want to be a stranger

I don't want to be just a passerby
Stand in line wrapped around the world
I don't want to be just a parasite
Holding on tight
Holding on tight

I got this feeling and it's down in my bones
I got this feeling and it's burning up my soul
I got to get just one shot, baby one more day
Got to give me one shot today
I got this feeling just give me one day


. . .



You said, "Young man, don't rely on a sword.
Cause your words will outlive even time."
I've counted my blessings.
The rest are for you.
Please listen close for awhile,
And breathe, breathe, deep for me James.
Don't you feel that you're free now from pain?
I've heard about heaven for years.
Can't be sure where you are, wander on blessed James.
I'm fine with you here.

I made the mistake once of fearing an end.
Is this life that we live just the world's accident?
Not a chance, so I move on with a smile.
Are you surprised where you are?
So breathe, breathe, deep for me James.
Don't you feel that you're free now from pain?
I've heard about heaven for years.
Can't be sure where you are, wander on blessed James.
I'm fine with you here.

Left my heart back at home, carried you in my chest.
And I don't feel like crying today.
Why can't we talk for awhile?
And breathe, breathe, deep for me James.
Don't you feel that you're free now from pain?
I've heard about heaven for years.
Can't be sure where you are, wander on blessed James.
I'm fine with you here.

You said, "Son, just listen to me."
But I'm doing fine, James.
So you can sit back and just breathe.
And it's time now to let yourself go.
Hold us close, spin the dream, the curtain will fall but behind it
I see that you're here.

Never say that nothing ever came from a mouse, anyway.
Might crawl to your house, take that cat away.
Don't let the world tell your mouth that it must say.
Nothing ever came from a mouse, anyway, anyway.

Never say that nothing ever came from a gnat, anyway.
Might fly in your ear, and then he done flown away.
Oh that aggravation can't you ever say.
Nothing ever came from a gnat, anyway, anyway.
Anyway.
Something always comes from the music, anyway.
Came into my life, ripped my blues away.
Oh that stereo is my best friend everyday.
Something always comes from the music anyway, anyway.
Anyway.

Don't you feel the music going to your bones.
And don't you feel that music is life.
Well, I do.
It's like blood ever flowing.
But I pray to God that the music fills the cup.
It gets me off when I'm feeling down.
And I cannot sleep when that music is around.
Well, I live just to move.
So get on up and get that groove back in your move.
A wise man once said.
A wise man once told me he said,
"When music is the one thing that surrounds you.
You feel no pain."

Anyway.

Tuesday's coming my baby
I told you Wednesday morning
It's not too late for us
My bags aren't out the door baby
Dont you know life's a feeling
But without you it's nothing
It's not too late for us
My bags aren't out the door baby
Tuseday's coming and I'm not gonna laeve you here darling

It's a shame you cant hear me
Scream my lungs out believe me
The miles burn me up
I'm living just to watch your fire darling
I'm headed out for the road now
The engines hold me while sleeping
A road might take me away
But its sure enough to bring me home baby
Tuesday's coming
And I'm not gonna leave you here darling

Tuesday's coming. Dedhambeh dareh meyod


. . .


Who's that with his arms around you?
Making eyes at you that way?
Looks in love, man it looks familiar
Damn, it's me
Never thought I'd see that day
It's like I came to from sleeping
No more bed rails
I'm pulled to daylight by your voice
Not that I had any choice

Now there's something coming over me
I know it's you
And there's someone that I used to be
But he is through
And I know that it's forever
And it's hard to do
There's something coming over me
I know it's you

And now we're talking 'bout the future
And a future wide open
If we love, it'll be the best place
I've ever been
And it was you to the rescue
Did I mention that I've never felt like this before?
I'm powerless to fight it anymore

Now there's something coming over me
I know it's you
And there's someone that I used to be
But he is through
And I know that it's forever
And it's hard to do
There's something coming over me
I know it's you

Used to watch this game from the sidelines
Now it's time to get on in and play
You've been waiting there for me for my whole life
I saw you, I saw you
And I know that it's forever
And it's hard to do
There's something coming over me
I know it's you

Now there's something coming over me
I know it's you
And there's someone that I used to be
But he is through
And I know that it's forever
And it's hard to do
There's something coming over me
I know it's you

On the black rock is where i spend my time
writing a memory or writing a rhyme
thinking about what is right or wrong
On the black rock is where i like to go
After a long night comin home from MY show
thats where i write my song all day long
the black rock, maryland that is

Sometimes, i just look around
taking the feeling coming out from the ground
thats just something i do sometimes
and then i just come out the door
taking the wind coming off of the shore
and thats just what im doing tonight

On the black rock is where i spend my time
writing a memory or writing a rhyme
thinking about what is right or wrong
On the black rock is where i like to go
After a long night comin home from the show
thats where i write my song all day long

When you are on your own
not speaking out is like fighting alone
and that is the worst damn way to fight
and when you are scared no more
you reach your hand out and just open the door
and thats just what I'm doing tonight

On the black rock is where i spend my time
writing a memory or writing a rhyme
thinking about what is right or wrong
On the black rock is where i like to go
After a long night comin home from MY show
thats where i write my song all day long
the black rock

About a one, maybe two, three, four, five years ago
Oh when I lived my days full of confusion, as you know
This comes and goes
But it leaves me upset all the time
Oh i was ready to do anything that was wrong
And I was looking for an answer, to just one of these questions here
So I went to this river side, to find me head so clear
And I saw this old man, sitting on a big black rock (black rock)
I said what's your name...he said i'm old man time

And my son well i've been waiting for you for long
You see that i can see your favors, that are growing in you strong
Well I can see that your so hurt, and I can see that your so vein
But you must listen to this thing I say and live through it all again
You must lose that anger, lose all that hate, it ain't gonna work no more
You see this world is runned by love and absolutely nothing more
So I laid down all my pain, and I got rid of my hate
And I love to get away and the black rock is where I stay
We all have a black rock, its in our minds, and I go there all the time
Its the black rock!


. . .



There was time now it's far away
I didn't know you, but I knew your name
We would talk, I got nothing to say
But hear me now
You're like an angel that is just for me
Bless your heart, let your mind go free
And it's too loud on the Earth today
So let's go home and lay down

Lay down and rest here in my arms
Lay down the universe is ours

Catch a teardrop, bleed the heart
Masquerade in a world apart
From a mass that got more to lose I'm making a run
So blessed angel that is just for me
Catch the dream, there's a lot to see
But it's too loud on the Earth today
So let's go home and lay it down

Lay down and rest here in my arms

I never seen a body move the way you do
Rocking steady and you know it too
You had to come down from Heaven above and tease the world
So listen good, cause I'm telling it straight
I don't got no more time to waste
I got a trip planned past the Sun
Taking you home

To lay down and rest here in my arms
Lay down the universe is ours

I bought a planet for you
I planned it for you, my dear
There's no one above you
I purchased a room with a view
And we can fly away to outer space
We'll be alone just us two
And you know it's all for you
All for you
All for you


. . .



Ohh myyyy

Bop bop bop...
I say now skittleedat dat,
Well how bout that?
I'm coming out the front never coming out the back

And I walked into the bar yesterday
Cause I had something to do, something to say
And Johnny walked in right behind me and I didn't turn around
Til I heard the sound of his feet falling on the ground
I looked over my shoulder and I saw a clown
And I said what'cha doin' in the bar tonight.

So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
He looked at me with a face full of fright
And I said, how bout a revolution?
And he said right.
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
Day day oh!

And I said, what'cha looking at?
He hit me across the face with a bat
I grabbed my .45 and I said let's get out and go
So he opened the door and said do what you're here for
I said I'm wandering round the road four to four
And I said I been walking for about a thousand years.

And my feet are growing tired
My eyes a little wired
Don't know what to do unless I retire
And he just said let's play some crazy poker

So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
He looked at me with a face full of fright
And I said, how bout a revolution?
And he said right.
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
Day day oh!

I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
But I'm not gonna quit and I'm not gonna stop
Don't give a shit cause I got the drop
Johnny just got two eyes just like mine
And I'm feeling kinda funky, kinda fine

And I drank a bottle of whiskey, 'fore I came
Came to the bar to see what's the same
I saw my man named Johnny sittin' across the table from me

And to my left was a man, he had no chin
Didn't really think about starting a scene
The man to my right wasn't feeling kinda nice
He looked kinda mad and I felt bad
Beacuse I took his money last night it's kinda funny
But now I'm just struggling--
I need a honey-bunny.
I don't know what to say anymore
So I'm just gonna go out, anywho...

So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
He looked at me with a face full of fright
And I said, how bout a revolution?
And he said right.
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
Day day oh!

Listen here, this will only be
A small portion of your lifetime
That you'll sacrifice for me
I asked and you were born
And like the wind you snuck up on me
Got me begging for your storm

Fifty-two fifty more days until I come back from war
I'm gonna lock you up and love you down
I can't take this anymore
Nights are old, but I am young
Across the sea writing letters home
Answer me, let me hear your voice
I can't take it anymore

And I don't know were you've gone
There's so much more you need to know

Take it slow now
Smooth running
Live the day cool
Show me strength
True loving
And trust me girl
True loving

Listen here, this will only be
A small portion of your lifetime
That you'll sacrifice for me
I asked and your were born
Like the snow you fall upon me
Got me begging for some more

Fifty-two fifty more days until I come back from war
I'm gonna love you up
And love you down
I'd cross the world just to
Hear your sound

Reign on love
Reign on love
Reign on love
Rain!

Well, in the end my friend, we will all be together again
Clutching onto my hand, in a valley we'll stand, just living again
And in a while we'll smile, march on another mile
On hallowed hills, attached to the land we'll be still
No one's ever gonna say a thing
And we'll be together, together again
Taking off to the city on down
Just a while ago my soul was confused, amused at what it did not know
Days went by, and amusement cried, I decide to let
My soul fly on by itself, pick happiness up and bring it back to the shelf
We'll be okay one day, in a valley we will stay
No more moving on
I knew it was right here all along
Won't have to hold your crown, no more looking around
Just holding you tight in the city on down
Just a while ago my soul was confused, amused at what it did not know
But days went by and amusement cried
I decide it's time, I got to move on now
But I was so scared
I was frightened, somewhat enlightened
So I changed shoes
Now I walk through a valley of color much better than the other
Way I did not know, but now we can be united
Miracle, miracle sighted, and I'm pulling it in
I know by now we can all walk together at a regular speed
Do you dare to be excited, are you somewhat delighted?
Are you aware somewhat delighted?
At what you did not know
Let's take it to the city on down
