Wright

Hold me tight the time is right
crazy dreams and mind-blowing schemes will get you
yeah

People talking bad to her
sitting on the block without any love
somewhere

It's time to let your mind play again
it's your heart just let mind play again

CHORUS

Sunshine help me
sunshine help me
help me take the strain away

Sunshine help me
sunshine help me
help me take the strain away

Is it true that I been wrong about the things
you always thought were innocent
People always going round putting me down

It's time to let your mind play again
its your heart let your mind take it

CHORUS

. . .


Dylan

Too much of nothing can make a man ill at ease
One man's temper rises while another man's temper might freeze
Now in the day of confession, we cannot mock a soul
Oh, when there's too much of nothing, no one has control.

Say hello to Valerie, say hello to Vivian
Give her all my salary on the waters of oblivion.

Well, now too much of nothing can cause a man to weep
He can walk the streets and like most and boast of what he'd like to keep
But it's all been done before, it's all been written in the book
And where there's too much of nothing, nobody should look.

Say hello to Valerie, say hello to Vivian
Give her all my salary on the waters of oblivion.

Now too much of nothing can make a man a liar
It can cause some man to sleep on nails, it can cause others to eat fire
Everybody's doin' somethin', I heard it in a dream
But when there's too much of nothing, it just makes a fella mean.

Say hello to Valerie, say hello to Vivian
Give her all my salary on the waters of oblivion.

Kellie-Wright

You seek to grow a happy face
But ya' need someone for sure
To fill tomorrow's empty space
That hides behind your door
Oh yeah...

I'll bring anything you want
You know I'm here to guide you
But change your day from bad to good
Hide the tears inside you
Oh yeah...

Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be feelin' now
Better times they got to come
Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be feelin' now

How you feelin' now it's all around
No one knows but you
The way it's been you just can't win
Theres nothing you can do
You're runnin' wild, a helpless child
Through them fools that guide ya'
A time to think is what you need
Wake up the time beside ya'
Oh yeah

Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be feelin' now
Better times they got to come

Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be feelin' yeah

Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be feelin' yeah
I'll make it fine if ya' say you're feelin' low

Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be
feelin' now

Feelin' bad - make it good
I'll show you how I think you should be
feelin' yeah
Let me help you put fine on the way you feel

Robertson

I pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
'Hey mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed ?'
He just grinned and shook my hand, 'No' was all he said.

Take a load off, Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny and you put the load right on me.

I picked up my bag, I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walking side by side
I said 'Hey Carmen, come on, let's go downtown'
She said 'I gotta go but my friend can stick around'.

Take a load off, Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny and you put the load right on me.

Go down Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say
It's just old Luke and Luke's waiting on the judgement day
'Well, Luke my friend, what about young Anna-Lee ?'
He said 'Do me a favour son, won't you stay and keep Anna-Lee company ?'.

Take a load off, Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny and you put the load right on me.

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said 'I will fix your rat if you'll take Jack my dog'
I said 'Wait a minute Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man'
He said 'That's OK boy, won't you feed him when you can ?'.

Yeah, take a load off, Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny and you put the load right on me.

Catch a cannonball now to take me down the line
My bag is sinking low and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

Take a load off, Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny and you put the load right on me.

Kooper-Levine

I can't quit her
She's got a hold on me
She got her hand on my soul
I can't quit her
'cause I see her face everywhere I go
In the city streets, in the country fields
In the back of my mind
I know it can't be real
For a woman to possess
All the tenderness she had
But the hands of time
Keep tickin' on my back
'cause it's been so long
Since I had her back beside me,
Yeah, I know

I can't quit her
'cause on my darkest night
She comes on like a light
I can't quite her
Try as I may, with all my might
She had a woman's touch
And a young girls eyes,
And in seconds flat I was pros'lytized
Turned around,
And made to feel sweet love
But the hands of time
Keep tickin' on my back
'cause it's been so long
Since I had her back beside me

True love is somethin'
Ev'ry young boy knows about
And he fights his whole soul all the best to find some
I was a young boy
'till I held her in my arms
Now I find that I'm strung out behind some

I can't quit her
She got her hand on me
She got a hold on my soul
'cause I your face everywhere I go
I can't quit her, woo ooo yeah
I know
You know I see your face
Everywhere I go!
I need her... I need the little girl

Wallinger

You can't see forward, can't look back
There's nothing that you need, nothing that you lack
And it ain't gonna last this way

You say you're living, out on the edge
But you're on solid ground, not on a ledge
And I think we're gonna make it, this time

Sunshine, just can't get enough of you
Sometimes you just blow my mind
I'm gonna take it, gonna change it all for you

I'm so glad that you found me
You made it just in time
I'm so glad now, I'm getting delirious

You're down in the basement, when we're up here on the roof
You're looking for evidence, when you're the living proof
But we hope you're gonna make it, up here baby

Sunshine I just can't get enough of you
Sometimes you just blow my mind
I'm gonna take it all, gonna change it all for you
Sunshine don't leave me behind

I keep getting caught in the rain
Fooled again and again
I start acting like there's no tomorrow
Gonna leave behind my pain and sorrow
Everything's like there's no tomorrow

Sometimes I just can't get enough of you
Sunshine you just blow my mind
Gonna take it, gonna change it all for you
Sunshine you just blow my mind
Sunshine
Sunshine, just can't get enough of you
Sunshine, just can't get enough of you

Wright

You can find a way to be my passion
You listen to the blood flowin' in my vein
You hear the teaching of the wind
Tell her what I'm like within
I can't find the words my mind is dim
It's better by you better than me

Guess you'll have to tell her how I tried
To speak the thoughts of hell so long inside
Tell her now I've got to go
Fight in the streets and guide the sword
Tell her the world's not much fallin' for
It's better by you better than me

It's better by you better than me
You can tell her what I want it to be
You can say what I only can see
It's better by you better than me

Guess I'll have to change my way of livin'
Only really know the way I've been
Guess I'll lean to fight and kill
Tell her not to wait until
Finds my blood upon her window sill
It's better by you better than me

It's better by you better than me
You can tell her what I want it to be
You can say what I only can see
It's better by you better than me
It's better by you better than me
You can say what I can see
You can tell her what I want it to be
It's better by you better than me
It's better by you
You know better than me
Yeah you can say what I only can see
