WORLD

Now
I've found
that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday.

Living tomorrow,
where in the world will I be tomorrow?
How far am I able to see?
Or am I needed here?

Now
I've found
that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday

If I remember
all of the things I have done,
I'd remember
all of the times I've gone wrong.
Why do they keep me here?

Now
I've found
that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday.

And now
I've found
that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday.

And now
I've found
that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday.

And now
I've found,
that the world is round ...


AND THE SUN WILL SHINE

And the rain will fall,
it falls for you.
And the clouds will
break into tears,
you should be here
standing so near to me.

'Cept I know you
should be sad.
But give me time alone
to get it out of my mind.

Though I’m saying
I know it's only the weather.
'Cause every time it rains
you are gone.
And I'm blue.

Then I wake up,
then I wake up.

And the sun will shine
if just for you.
And the trees will talk to the skies
whispering lies,
heaven will pass to me, yeah.

Trains walk back
and the birds disappear.
Oh! Why am I still here
without you by my side?

So I cry your name
and love,
cause love to me is back and how near.

Then I wake up,
then I grow up.

And the rain will fall.
It falls for you.
And the clouds will break.
It should be near.

And the sun will shine
if just for you
And the love...


LEMONS NEVER DO FORGET

Incidentally there should some changes made.
You've got to work if you should have to save.
An apple is a fool but lemons never do forget.
You've got to play it cool before they come and throw the net.

Wait a while and straighten out the tie you wear.
You've got to take it easy if you dare.
An apple is a fool but lemons never do forget.
You've got to play it cool before they come and throw the net.

Don't be blind, you've got a thinking mind.
Stop the bells that ring so loud.
Don't nod your head, you'll draw a crowd.
Just think of everything you've worked so hard to bring.
The lemon sings my song. He's known it all along.

REALLY AND SINCERELY

My mind is open now,
I'm on the other side.
Though you remember my name.
And if you go away
I'll get it off somehow.
I'll leave it all in the air.
No, no.

Turn me down.
Turn me down.
Turn me down.
Oh, how I've tried.
Really and sincerely I've tried.

There is a song,
I hear it all around.
But I don't hear a sound.
If you were with me now,
I'd let you know my mind.
Love is so easy to lose.
No, no.

Turn me down.
Turn me down.
Turn me down.
Oh, how I've tried.
Really and sincerely.

Turn me down.
Turn me down.
Turn me down.
Turn me down.


BIRDIE TOLD ME

Birdie told me I must get over you
somehow.
And she told me never to think of you
right now.

But it's hopeless to say
how can I forget the way she used to love me.
I think about her in my time,
know in my mind it's over.

Looks like falling,
heaven is calling my name
to me.
Funny faces loving the traces left
for me.

But it's hopeless to say
how can I forget the way she used to love me.
I think about her in my time,
know in my mind it's over.

Birdie taught me how to get over you.


WITH THE SUN IN MY EYES

I do not need you.
Nor do I listen to the words you say.
Strongly I heed you.
But every promise seems to fade away.

Who is the clown
that walks in the steps of my shadow?
Is it the man
who does what he can but never does it right?

How can I prove?
There is no reasoning or asking why.
Only to prove.
I love you deeply with the sun in my eyes.

How can I prove?
There is no reasoning or asking why.
Only to prove.
I love you deeply with the sun in my eyes.
I love you deeply with the sun in my eyes
I love you deeply with the sun in my eyes.


MASSACHUSETTS

Feel I'm going back to Massachusetts.
Something's telling me I must go home.
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
the day I left her standing on her own.

Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco.
Gotta do the things I wanna do.
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts.
They brought me back to see my way with you.

Talk about the life in Massachusetts.
Speak about the people I have seen.
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts.
And Massachusetts is one place I have seen..
I will remember Massachusetts...


HARRY BRAFF

Checkered flag, checkered flag,
checkered flag for Harry Braff.
Checkered flag, checkered flag,
checkered flag for Harry Braff.

Goodbye, Harry Braff!
It's so good to see him win the race,
and the crowd, feeling proud just to know they are there,
and getting a good view of Harry Braff, Harry Braff.

Realise, Harry Braff,
and the Mayor of Gordon cheers him on.
Every mile, see him smile with the dust in his eyes,
everyone's crying for Harry Braff, Harry Braff.

Goodbye, Harry Braff! Goodbye, Harry Braff!
Goodbye, Harry Braff! Goodbye!

Checkered flag, checkered flag,
checkered flag for Harry Braff.
Checkered flag, checkered flag,
checkered flag for Harry Braff.

Goodbye, Harry Braff!
It's so good to see him win the race,
and the crowd, feeling proud just to know they are there,
and getting a good view of Harry Braff, Harry Braff.

Goodbye, Harry Braff! Goodbye, Harry Braff!
Goodbye, Harry Braff! Goodbye!

Harry Braff, Harry Braff, Goodbye!
Harry Braff! Harry Braff!
Hey I'm a-coming.
Harry Braff, Harry Braff, Goodbye!
....

DAYTIME GIRL

There she goes my daytime girl.
Spreading her wings like a high flying eagle.
All the people will stare as she falls to the ground.

Heaven knows my daytime girl.
Never been kissed, she don't know what she's missing.
All the kisses there are to be found.

All the wisdom of people she used.
She took advantage of this.
Taking time to remember the past.
Remembering all she has missed.

What a dream this place has been.
Said when she left 'I believed when I saw him.
All the seeing believing come true'.

All the wisdom of people she used.
She took advantage of this.
Taking time to remember the past.
Remembering all she has missed.

There she goes my daytime girl.
Spreading her wings like a high flying eagle.
All the people will stare as she falls to the ground.


THE EARNEST OF BEING GEORGE

You better run just as fast as you can,
I've got no reason to try.
You did it to me and I'm taking a stand.
You've got a reason to cry.

Fairy stories in the penny arcade.
You bought my love and I paid.
I'm not trying to make history.
You could have been good to me.

Fairy stories in the penny arcade.
You bought my love and I paid. (all right)
I'm not trying to make history.
You could have been good to me.

Spent my life making my love to you.
I've got no reason to try.
Got no reason left for making you blue.
You've got a reason to cry.

Fairy stories in the penny arcade.
You bought my love and I paid.
I'm not trying to make history.
You could have been good to me.

You better run just as fast as you can.
You better run just as fast as you can..


THE CHANGE IS MADE

Look out my window.
I can see tomorrow.
Just a whole way of sorrow.
When the change is made.

And I've been crying.
Oh, Lord, I've been crying.
But I'll go on crying
when the change is made.

And I’ve been a good man.
Oh Lord, lord, I've been a good man.
But what's good's a good man
after the change is made? Yeah!

And I'm not forgetting
all the love, the love I’ve been getting.
I've got to go on living
after the change is made.

And I been crying.
Oh Lord, Lord, I been crying.
But I got to go on crying
after the change is made.

And I'm not forgetting
all the love I’ve been getting.
'Cause I got to go on living
after the change is made.

And I'm not forgetting
all the love, all the love I been getting.
And I got to go on living
after the change is made.

And I'm not forgetting
all the love I been getting.
But I got to go on living
after the change is made.

And I'm not forgetting
All the love,all the love, all the love.
And I got...


HORIZONTAL

I have been lying
under a pillow of dreams
and feeling
moments of swimming in cream.

This is the start of the end.
Goodbye.
Flowers are facing my life
and dying.

You are a good friend,
friendly as good friends can be.
Your father
wants you to live on his knees.

This is the start of the end.
Climb binding
bedsides and blue sights within,
reminding.

I have been lying
under a pillow of dreams
and feeling
moments of swimming in cream.

This is the start of the end.
Goodbye.
Flowers are facing my life
and dying.
