STONE COLD RAGE
Stone cold rage in the alleway
Something like I ain’t never see
I been out to California
I been to St. Augustine
Something’s happening in the back woods
And it’s spreading out like water
Stone cold rage in the hinterland
Mama’s gonna be a martyr

I ain’t saying that I don’t understand
I ain’t saying we don’t all need to be free
I ain’t saying I’ve got some better plan
But I ain’t asking no one to follow me

Stone cold rage in the alleway
Something like I ain’t never see
I been out to California
I been to St. Augustine
Something’s happening in the back woods
And it’s spreading out like water
Stone cold rage in the hinterland
Mama’s gonna be a martyr

People talking ‘bout a revolution
People talking ‘bout taking it to the streets
Some folks saying there’s no solution
Some folks ain’t waiting ‘round to see

I ain’t saying that I don’t understand
I ain’t saying we don’t all need to be free
I ain’t saying I’ve got some better plan
But I ain’t asking no one to follow me

Stone cold rage in the alleway
Something like I ain’t never see
I been out to California
I been to St. Augustine
Something’s happening in the back woods
And it’s spreading out like water
Stone cold rage in the hinterland
Mama’s gonna be a martyr
Mama’s gonna be a martyr
Mama’s gonna be a martyr

Stone cold rage

Mama’s gonna be a martyr

DRAWN THAT WAY
Where is your mansion? How much did it cost?
Is that your or Jesus on the cross?
What made you cross that line? Was it the boy next door?
Do you like yourself better now than before?

Cartoon savior
No matter what you say
You’re not really a man of God
You’re just drawn that way

Where were your disciples when you were living on the streets?
Before you figured out how to make ends meet
Now you get to judge everyone not just those on trial
Where do you find room for all that denial?

Cartoon savior
We all pay to play
You can’t really see the light
You’re just drawn that way

Cartoon savior
How do you spell prey?
You can’t  stop yourself from lying
You’re just drawn...

PRESSURE UNDER FIRE
Just another song about the same thing, so many have been written
By now you’d think we’d know better
Maybe just one lonely voice is never gonna be enough
We’ve all got to sing it together

We’re all fighting the same fight
We’re all traveling down life’s road
There’s only so much you can do by yourself
People, we got to share the load
Yeah we got to share the load
The next sound you hear, pressure under fire
Living in fear of what we don’t understand
It all seems so clear, pressure under fire
Ain’t no way to live in this land

We all know how this ends, so many times, so many places
By now you’d think we’d have learned
From any one of those times that it blew up in your faces
How many times can you be burned
We keep on moving in the wrong direction
We keep on heading down the same old track
There’s only so much you can take
Only so many times, we can turn our backs
People, we can’t keep turning our backs
The next sound you hear, pressure under fire
Living in fear of what we don’t understand
It all seems so clear, pressure under fire
Ain’t no way to live in this land
Amd a wise man said
“Human race is the only race
You can’t dispel darkness with darkness”
It’s been said so many times
We got to learn to work together if we’re gonna get out of this mess

Just another song about the same thing, so many have been sung
By now you’d think we’d know better
The next sound you hear
Pressure under fire
We’re living in fear of what we don’t understand
It all seems so clear, pressure under fire
Ain’t no way to live in this land

Pressure under fire
Living in fear of what we don’t understand
It all seems so clear, pressure under fire
Ain’t no way to live in this land
No way to live, oh
No way to live in this land

THE MAN I WANT TO BE
I’m here today because there’s some things I want to get off my chest
Some things I’m just starting to realize
They say as we get older we get wiser
I don’t know if that’s true
But I know a fog’s been lifted from my eyes

You see it seems sometimes when someone wins
That someone has to lose
And I’m afraid I’ve been the winner too much
When it comes to me and you, baby
You’ve always been there
There were times when I was gone
And you needed my touch

But you know I love you, I know you do
So tell me you never gave up on me
I can be everything those people see, everything
But I can’t be the man I want to be

I refused to listen, baby, when you tried to tell me so many times
I was headed down a wrong-way street
I got this one-way ticket, baby, I think I might have to cash it in
Maybe coming home would be the best thing for me

You see I don’t want to lose you and if I do nobody wins
I know it’s up to me to make it right this time
So give me one more chance, baby, I swear I won’t let you down
Take my hand, let me say what’s on my mind

I’m here today
Because there’s so many things I want to say
Some things I finally realized
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder
I don’t know if that’s really true
But I know I drid a thousand tears from my eyes

And you know I love you, I know you do
So tell me you never gave up on me
I can be everything those people see, everything
I can’t be the man I want to be

You know I love you, I know you do
So tell me you never gave up on me
I can be everything those people see, everything
I can’t seem to be the man I want to be

I can’t be the man I want to be
I can’t be the man I want to
I can’t be the man i want to be

I can’t be the man I want to be

You know I love you, I know you do
So tell me you never gave up on me

TRAVELING TUNE
Just another highway song
Just another traveling tune
They say sing about what you know

Well, hello people, it’s been a long time
So good to see you, how ya’ feeling?
It’s good to be together, even for a shor while
Nothing like a little rocking and reeling

So many familiar faces
Scattered in with the new ones
We got to keep spreading the word
You keep on coming
We’ll keep on coming back
Even when the lines are getting blurred

Just another highway song
Just another traveling tune
They say sing about what you know
Well, I know I’ve been down this road a time or two
So, let’s sing another road song before we go

Here’s one for the fallen ones that didn’t make it through
This life’s challenges and pressures
We gotta keep on rising, keep singing in their honor
Maybe even enjoy some of life’s pleasures

Just another highway song
Just another traveling tune
They say sing about what you know

They say “How many road songs can you write?”
As many as it takes to get it right
Here’s one I just wrote the other day
Let’s sing it, then be on our way
I try to inject myself into the show,
It’s all I know

Well, goodbye people, we’ll see you down the road
Some other time, some other place
And we’ll raise our voices, maybe even a glass in toast
To those that can never be replaced

Just another highway song
Just another traveling tune
They say sing about what you know
Well, I know this old heart’s been broken a time or two
So, let’s sing another sad one before we go

Just another highway song
Just another traveling tune
They say sing about what you know

THORNS OF LIFE
Let me take you on a hillside, clouds streaming overhead
I can’t take these lies, hanging over my head
Better off leaving it behind, running away instead

Thorns of life seem to be penetrating my soul
Something is fading in me, something’s taking its toll
Hard to stay a step ahead when you’re losing control

Takes everything I can do, just to make it through these times
I’ve got to get back to you, gotta make it this time

Dying inside till I feel you
Burning on my skin
Under the moonlight I’ll reveal you
Again and again

Thorns of life seem to be penetrating my soul
Something is fading in me, something’s taking its toll
Hard to stay a step ahead when you’re losing, oh you’re losing control

Let me, let me, let me feel you

Let me feel you
One more day
One more day
Gimme one more day

Dying inside till I feel you
Burning on my skin
Under the moonlight I’ll reveal you
Again and again

Dying inside till I feel you
Under the moonlight I’ll reveal you
Again and again and again and again

Let me take you on a hillside, clouds streaming overhead

DREAMS & SONGS
My whole life’s been filled with songs and dreams
When I was a child I had a time machine
Little did I know, it would go too fast
Little did I know, you could see the future but no the past

Leave it all behind, come what may
Always thought I’d be coming home someday
Little did I know, life is hard
Here I am now, staring out a window at my old back yard

Is there any comfort to be derived in knowing that most of our lives
Can never be the same, we can never go back home
And those that can are lucky, I guess
To somehow escape from this mess
Me, I can only do it in dreams and songs

Trying to fill a hole while running a race
Leaves an even bigger empty space
But a moving target is harder to kill
Never was one for taking it easy or standing still

Nowadays I find myself again
Throwing stones and caution to the wind
Nothing’s really changed but the scenery
And staring in to my child’s eyes, I realize what it all means to me

Is there any comfort to be derived in knowing that most of our lives
Can never be the same, you can never go back home
And those that can are lucky, I guess
To somehow escape from this mess
Me, I can only do it in dreams and songs

Is there any comfort to be derived in knowing that most of our lives
Can never be the same, you can never go back home
And those than can are lucky, I guess
To somehow escape from this mess
Me, I can only do it in dreams and songs

Dreams and songs

SARAH, SURRENDER
For so long I’ve been watching you
Never thought I could out through the distance
Woman, I know what you’ve been through
And I understand your resistance

But somthing’s different today
I feel you breaking away

Sarah surrender yourself to me
We will always remember the day we broke free
I feel your heart beating faster, I think it’s finally time
Sarah surrender your soul into mine

From the first moment that you looked at me
I couldn’t catch my breath
I wanted to be part of your mystery
But it scares me to death

But somthing’s different today
I feel me breaking away

Sarah surrender yourself to me
We will always remember the day we broke free
I feel your heart beating faster, I think it’s finally time
Sarah surrender your soul into mine

But somthing’s different today
I feel us breaking away

Sarah surrender yourself to me
We will always remember the day we broke free
I feel your heart beating faster, I think it’s finally time
(Sarah surrender), oh come on now
(Sarah surrender), oh surrender
(Sarah surrender), your soul into mine

Surrender your soul into...

REVOLUTION COME, REVOLUTION GO
Smiling in the face of your enemies
They can’t kill your dreams
New faces are welcome down at the meeting place
Where the gold of the future brightly gleams

Down the street you hear the sound of confusion
Echoing like a million voices
On the wave of a wind you may ride
But only if you’re not scared to fall

I think this change is here to stay, don’t you know
Revolution come, revolution go

New master riding in on a white horse
All the new kings with their feet of clay
Lying to the people about some new deal
Cump change happens everyday

People in the streets raising their voices high
Trying to be heard over the thunder
World is rumbling and trembling
Is it some spell that we’re under?

I think this change is here to stay, don’t you know
Revolution come, revolution go

Sun is rising on a sinking town
Don’t let us die before the sun goes down
Bells ringing in the hope of a brand new day

We come flying on the wings of a song
Singing the message of right and wrong
Keep on ringing them bells for the brand new day
For the brand new day

Keep on ringing them bells
For the brand new day

Smiling in the face of your enemies
They can’t kill your dreams
I think this change is here to stay, don’t you know
Revolution come, revolution go

BURNING POINT
Are we that much different? Tell me what can bring us together
Drawing lines in the sand, never does make things any better
We’re testing ourselves to see if we’re gonna survive
All this rampant stupidity seems to be spreading like fire

We’re pushing it to the burning point
Whole thing’s going up in flames
Somebody tell me
Has the whole world gone insane?

We protect ourselves, guess we’re wired that way
But who is the enemy at the end of the day?
Locking each other out, is only locking ourselves in
Solitary solitude, ain’t never gonna be our friend

Push it to the burning point
Whole thing’s going up in flames
Somebody tell me
Has the whole world gone insane?

Burning point, us in all our glory
And when the smoke finally clears
Ain’t nothing left but the story

Keep on pushing it
Keep on pushing it

Hell, we keep on testing ourselves to see if we’re gonna survive
Burning point, whole thing’s going up in flames
Somebody tell me has the whole world gone insane?

We push it to the burning point, us in all our glory
And when the smoke finally clears, yeah
And when the smoke finally clears, I said
And when the smoke finally clears
Ain’t nothing left but the story

Ain’t nothing left
Ain’t nothing left but the story

Ain’t nothing left but the story

EASY TIMES
I remember laying under the stars, showered by moonlight
No thoughts for tomorrow
Nothing to do but live our lives, the way we choose
No time for sorrow
Running the distance of the day before our skies turned grey
Those were easy times
You were oh, so easy on my mind
Everyday was another journey just to see what we might find
Those were easy times

I remember hiding from the world, kissed by the rain
Walking arm in arm
No one could tear us apart, we were always even stronger
After the storm
Back then even the darkest night
Somehow gave way to the light
Those were easy times
You were oh, so easy on my mind
Everyday was another journey just to see what we might find
Those were easy times

Looking back we can never really see, where things went wrong
Or why we couldn’t save it
We didn’t know that time was such a precious thing, we let it slip away
Now it all seems so crazy
In the end, life got so much harder and we turned on earch other
But I remember those easy times

You were oh, so easy on my mind, those were easy times
Everyday was another journey just to see what we might find
Those were easy times
I can see the whole world in your eyes
Those were easy times
Now and then I still can and it feels just like a sunrise

Easy times

I can see the whole world in your eyes
Oh, I know it’s easy time
Now and then I still can, still it feels, feels just like a sunrise
(You were so easy on my mind)
Feels like a sunrise

DARK WAS THE NIGHT, COLD WAS THE GROUND
Dark was the night and cold was the ground

Blue on one side, black is on the other
We all see red and it’s defining our color
Are we in a hurry to see what happens in the end?
If we don’t find a new start the end is nigh, my friend

Dark was the night and cold was the ground

Rue the day that we can’t live together
Cuts so deep that they keep bleeding forever
Are we so blind, can’t see the road ahead
Travelling to somewhere we’d be better off dead

Dark was the night
And cold was the ground

I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO CHANGE MY PLANS
I guess, I'll have to change my plan
I should have realized there'd be another man
I overlooked that point completely
Until the big affair began
Before I knew where I was at
I found myself upon the shelf and that was that
I tried to reach the moon but when I got there
All that I could get was the air
My feet are back upon the ground
I've lost the one girl, I'd found

I guess I'll have to change my plan,
I should have realized there'd be another man,
Why did I buy those blue pajamas,
Before the big affair began,
My boiling point is much to low
For me to try to be a fly Lothario,
I think I'll crawl right back and into my shell,
Dwelling in my personal hell,
I'll have to change my plan around,
I've lost the one girl, man, I found.
Yes, the one girl, the one girl I had found

SEPTEMBER OF MY YEARS
One day you turn around and it's summer
Next day you turn around and it's fall
And the springs and the winters of a lifetime
Whatever happened to them all?

As a man who has always had the wand'ring ways
Now I'm reaching back for yesterdays
'Til a long-forgotten love appears
And I find that I'm sighing softly as I near
September, the warm September of my years

As a man who has never paused at wishing wells
Now I'm watching children's carousels
And their laughter's music to my ears
And I find that I'm smiling gently as I near
September, the warm September of my years
The golden warm September of my years

I COULD HAVE TOLD YOU
I could have told you
She'd hurt you
She'd you love you a while
Then desert you
If only you asked
I could have told you so

I could have saved you
Some crying
Yes, I could have told you she's lying
But you were in love
And didn't want to know

I hear her now
As I toss and turn and try to sleep
I hear her now
Making promises she'll never keep
And soon, it's over and done with
She'll find someone new to have fun with
Through all of my tears
I could have told you so

I hear her now
As I toss and turn and try to sleep
I hear her now
Making promises she'll never keep
And soon, it's over and done with
She'll find someone new to have fun with
Through all of my tears
I could have told you so

ONCE UPON A TIME
Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go

Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again

Once upon a time
Never comes again

STORMY WEATHER
Don't know why
Theres no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time
The time
So weary all the time

When she went away
The blues walked in and they met
If she stays away that old rocking chair's gonna get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Oh, just I walk in the sun once more

Can't go on
Everything I have is gone
Stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Keeps raining all the time

THIS NEARLY WAS MINE
One dream in my heart,
one love to be living for
One love to be living for,
this nearly was mine

One girl for my dream,
one partner in paradise
This promise of paradise,
this nearly was mine

Close to my heart she came,
only to fly away
Only to fly as day flies
from moonlight

Now, now I'm alone,
still dreaming of paradise
Still saying that paradise
once nearly was mine

THAT OLD FEELING
I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight, I got that old feeling
The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still

Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning
And I knew the spark of love was still burning
There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'Cause that old, old feeling is still in my heart

There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'Cause that old, old feeling is still in my heart

IT GETS LONELY EARLY
When you're all alone
All the children grown
And, like starlings, flown away
It gets lonely early, doesn't it?
Lonely early, doesn't it?
Ev'ry single endless day

When your twilight nears
And one face appears
Turning winter years to May
It gets lonely early, doesn't it?
Lonely early, doesn't it?
Still the old heart's young enough to say
It was really more than lovely, wasn't it?
"Truly lovely, wasn't it?

Ev'ry single lovely day

MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE
The very thought of you makes my heart sing
Like an April breeze on the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendor
My one and only love

The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night while you're in my arms
I feel your lips so warm and tender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
And the blush on your cheek whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with such desire
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
And the blush on your cheek whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with such desire
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

TRADE WINDS
Down where the trade winds play,
Down where you lose the day,
We found a new world where paradise starts,
We traded hearts way down where the trade winds play.

Music was everywhere, flowers were in her hair,
Under an awning of silvery boughs,
We traded vows the night that I sailed away.

Oh trade winds, what are vows that lovers make?,
Oh trade winds, are they only made to break,
When it is May again, I'll sail away again,
Though I'm returning, it won't be the same,
She traded her name way down where the trade winds play

BRAGGIN'
Braggin'
Wastin' all your time just braggin'
When ya' should be busy
Plowin' and a’plantin'
You stand there a'rantin'
Get no harvest to your heart

Braggin'
You ain't got no cause for braggin'
When your barn needs mendin'
And your lawn needs mowin'
How come you're a crowin'
Like a no-good rooster at dawn

Braggin' 'bout your fishin'
'Bout your horseshoe pitchin'
Bet you always keep the score
Talkin' 'bout your meddle
That's the kind they peddle
Down at the 5 and 10 store

Braggin'
Folks ain't got no use for braggin'
If your fields are greener
Folks will hear about it
You don't hafta shout it
Fields were greener 'fore you were born

Braggin' 'bout your fishin'
'Bout your horseshoe pitchin'
Bet you always keep the score
Talkin' 'bout your meddle
That's the kind they peddle
Down at the 5 and 10 store

Braggin'
Folks ain't got no use for braggin'
If your fields are greener
Folks will hear about it
You don't hafta shout it
Fields were greener 'fore you were born

AS TIME GOES BY
You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

And when two lovers woo
They still say "I love you"
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy, and hate
Woman needs man and man must have his mate
That no one can deny

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by

IMAGINATION
Imagination is funny
It makes a cloudy day sunny
Makes a bee think of honey
Just as I think of you

Imagination is crazy
Your whole perspective gets hazy
Starts you asking a daisy
What to do, what to do

Have you ever felt a gentle touch
And then a kiss, and then and then
Find it's only your imagination again

Imagination is silly
You go around willy nilly
For example I go around wanting you
And yet I can't imagine that you want me too

HOW DEEP IS THE OCEAN?
How much do I love you?
I'll tell you no lie
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?

How many times a day do I think of you?
How many roses are sprinkled with dew?

How far would I travel
To be where you are?
How far is the journey
From here to a star?

And if I ever lost you,
How much would I cry?
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?

And if I ever lost you,
How much would I cry?
How deep is the ocean?
How high is the sky?

P.S. I LOVE YOU
What is there to write? What is there to say?
The same things happen everyday,
Not a thing to write, not a thing to say
So I take my pen in hand and start the same old way

Dear, I thought I'd drop a line, the weather's cool, the folks are fine
I'm in bed each night at nine, P.S. I love you
Yesterday we had some rain, but all in all, I can't complain
Was it dusty on the train, P.S. I love you
Write to the Browns just as soon as you're able
They came around to call,
And I burned a hole in the dining room table
And let me see, I guess that's all
Nothing else for me to say, and so I'll close but by the way
Everybody's thinking of you, P.S. I love you
I do my best to obey all your wishes,
I put a sign up "Think"
But I gotta buy us a new set of dishes,
Or wash the ones that are piled in the sink
Nothing else to tell you dear, except each day seems like a year
Every night I'm dreaming of you, P.S. I love you

THE BEST IS YET TO COME
Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum
You came along and everything started to hum
Still it's a real good bet the best is yet to come

The best is yet to come and, babe, won't it be fine?
You think you've seen the sun but you ain't seen it shine
Wait till the warm-up's underway
Wait till our lips have met
Wait till you see that sunshine day
You ain't seen nothin' yet!

The best is yet to come and, babe, won't it be fine?
The best is yet to come, come the day you're mine
Come the day you're mine, I'm gonna teach you to fly
We're gonna taste of the wine
We're gonna drain the cup dry

Wait till your charms are right for these arms to surround
You think you've flown before but, babe, you ain't left the ground
Wait till you're locked in my embrace
Wait till I draw you near
Wait till you see that sunshine place
Ain't nothin' like it here

The best is yet to come and, babe, won't it be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day you're mine
Come the day you’re mine, and you’re gonna be mine

BUT BEAUTIFUL
Love is funny or it's sad
Or it's quiet or it's mad
It's a good thing or it's bad
But beautiful

Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall
And I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all

Love is tearful or it's gay
It's a problem or it's play
It's a heartache either way
But beautiful

And I'm thinking if you were mine, I'd never let you go
And that would be but beautiful, I know

Love is tearful or it's gay
It's a problem or it's play
It's a heartache either way
But it's beautiful

And I'm thinking if you were mine, I'd never let you go
And that would be but beautiful, I know

HERE'S THAT RAINY DAY
Maybe I should have saved those leftover dreams
Funny but here's that rainy day
Here's that rainy day they told me about
And I laughed at the thought that it might turn out this way

Where is that worn out wish that I threw aside
After it brought my love so near
Funny how love becomes a cold rainy day
Funny that rainy day is here

It's funny how love becomes a cold rainy day
Funny that rainy day is here

WHERE IS THE ONE?
Where is the one
Who'll end the search I'm making
Where is the one
Who'll change my dream to waking
Behind some far off secret door
There's my love
There's my life
In store
The journey's long
Much longer than I reckoned
In any throng
I'll know her in a second
Some lucky day
I'm bound to find her
And when I do
I'll find love

The journey's long
Much longer than I reckoned
In any throng
I'll know her in a second
Some lucky day
I'm bound to find her
And when I do
I'll find love

THERE'S A FLAW IN MY FLUE
I used to sit by my fireplace
And dream about you
But now that won't do
There's a flaw in my flue

Your lovely face in my fireplace
Was all that I saw
But now it won't draw
‘Cause my flue has a flaw

From every beautiful ember a memory arose
Now I try to remember and smoke gets in my nose
It's not as sweet as the unit-heat
To dream about you
So darling, adieu
There's a flaw in my flue

DAY IN, DAY OUT
Day in, day out
Same old voodoo follows me about
Same old pounding in my heart whenever I think of you
And darling, I think of you, day in and day out

Day out, day in
I needn't tell you how my days begin
When I awake I awake with a tingle, one possibility in view
That possibility of maybe seeing you

Come rain, come shine
I meet you and to me the day is fine
Then I kiss your lips and the pounding becomes
The oceans roar, a thousand drums

Can't you see it's love
Can there be any doubt
When there it is
Day in and day out

Come rain, come shine
I meet you and to me the day is fine
Then I kiss those lips and the pounding becomes
Like the oceans roar, like thousand drums

Can't you see that it's love
Can there be any doubt
When there it is
When there it is
When there it is
Day in and day out

I COULDN'T SLEEP A WINK LAST NIGHT
I couldn't sleep a wink last night
Because we had that silly fight
I thought my heart would break the whole night through
I knew that you'd be sorry
And I'm sorry too

I didn't have my favorite dream
The one in which I hold you tight
I had to call you up this morning
To see if everything was still all right
Yes, I had to call you up this morning
'Cause I couldn't sleep a wink last night

I didn't have my favorite dream
The one in which I hold you tight
I had to call you up this morning
To see if everything was still all right
Yes, I had to call you up this morning
‘Cause I couldn't sleep a wink last night

SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY
Gonna take a sentimental journey
Gonna set my heart at ease
Gonna make a sentimental journey
To renew old memories

I got my bag, I got my reservation
Spent each dime I could afford
Like a child in wild anticipation
I long to hear that: "All aboard!"

Seven, that's the time we leave, at seven
I'll be waiting up for heaven
Counting every mile of railroad track, that moves me back

I never though my heart could be so yearny
Why did I decide to roam
Gotta take a sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home

Gonna take a sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY
I used to walk with you
Along the avenue
Our hearts were carefree and gay
How could I know I'd lose you
Somewhere along the way?

The friends we used to know
Would always smile "Hello"
No love like our love they'd say
Then love slipped through our fingers
Somewhere along the way

I should forget
But with the loneliness of night I start remembering ev'rything
You're gone and yet
There's still a feeling deep inside
That you will always be part of me

So now I look for you
Along the avenue
And as I wander I pray
That some day soon I'll find you
Somewhere along the way

That some day soon I'll find you
Somewhere along the way
Somewhere along the way

WHEN THE WORLD WAS YOUNG
It isn't by chance I happen to be
A boulevardier, the toast of Paris
For over the noise, the talk and the smoke
I'm good for a laugh, a drink or a joke
I walk in a room, a party or ball
"Come sit over here" somebody will call
"A drink for M'sieur, a drink for us all!"
But how many times I stop and recall

Ah, the apple trees
Blossoms in the breeze
That we walked among
Lying in the hay
Games we used to play
While the rounds were sung
Only yesterday, when the world was young

Wherever I go they mention my name
And that in itself, is some sort of fame
"Come by for a drink, we're having a game"
Wherever I go I'm glad that I came
The talk is quite gay, the company fine
There's laughter and lights, and glamour and wine
And beautiful girls and some of them mine
But often my eyes see a different shine

Ah, the apple trees
Sunlit memories
Where the hammock swung
On our backs we'd lie
Looking at the sky
Till the stars were strung
Only last July when the world was young

THESE FOOLISH THINGS
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you

A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumbling words that told you what my heart meant
A fairground's painted swings
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me
I knew somehow this had to be

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings but who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings but who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

YOU GO TO MY HEAD
You go to my head
And you linger like a haunting refrain
And I find you spinning 'round in my brain
Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne

You go to my head
Like a sip of sparkling Burgundy brew
And I find the very mention of you
Like the kicker in a julep or two

The thrill of the thought that you might give a thought to my plea
Cast a spell over me
Still I say to myself get a hold of yourself
Can't you see that it never can be

You go to my head
With a smile that makes my temperature rise
Like a summer with a thousand July's
You intoxicate my soul with your eyes

Though I'm certain that this heart of mine
Hasn't a ghost of a chance kill this crazy romance
You go to my head
You go to my head

STARDUST
Sometimes I wonder
Why I spend my lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
Oh, but that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Beside the garden wall, when stars were bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale told his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart, it will always remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain

IT'S FUNNY TO EVERYONE BUT ME
It's funny how you loved me
Then forgot so suddenly
It's funny to everyone but me

They told me this would happen
Now they're laughing secretly
It's funny to everyone but me

I should shrug my shoulders and say
Good riddance to a bad affair
But how can I do, but my head tells me to
When my heart tells me how much I care
It's funny, I still love you
It's the joke of the century
It's funny to everyone but me

It's so funny, I still love you
It's the joke of the century
Ah, but it's funny to everyone but me

WHY WAS I BORN?
Why was I born, why am I living?
What do I give, what am I giving?
Why do I want a thing I daren't hope for?
What can I hope for?
I wish I knew

Why do I try to draw you near me?
Why do I’m crying? You never hear me
I'm a poor fool, but what can I do?
Why was I born to love you?

I'm a poor fool, but what can I do?
Why was I born to love you?
