AUGUST OCTOBER

Autumn and Friday the winds blew.
July, September, I knew you.
And now I sit on the sand hill.
I sing our song to the sea.

August, October,
mid-April, November, May.
Beckoning hands made you fly.
I cry, it's curtains today.

In August, October the grass grew.
The sky was blue and I want you.
Now as I look out my window
I see the world carry on.

August, October,
mid-April, November, May.
Beckoning hands made you fly.
I cry, it's curtains today.

August, October,
mid-April, November, May.
Beckoning hands made you fly.
I cry, it's curtains today.
I cry, it's curtains today.
I cry, it's curtains today.


GONE GONE GONE

No more room to roam.
I have lost my hope.
Stars have all gone in.
Which way have I been?
I'm too rich to learn
and far to cold to burn.

Gone gone
are the days, I cried,
when I could so easily have tried.
Work, work,
when instead I laughed
and nothing now I have.

Hoping much too long.
My eyes are not so strong.
I just cannot see
what is right and wrong.

Gone gone
are the days, I cried,
when I could so easily have tried.
Work, work,
when instead I laughed
and nothing now I have.

Ahh....


THE WORST GIRL IN THIS TOWN

Ah...
I just don't know what you can achieve
when you say you need me and then leave.
Everything you tell me is a lie.
You and I just don't see eye to eye.

Soon you'll run, there is no fun remaining.
The life I once enjoyed you've surely taken.
I'm convinced for years, I've been your clown.
The heart I gave, well, you have just forsaken.

You are the worst girl in this town.
You are the worst girl in this town.

Ah..

There are lots like you, that it's not true.
I'd be a fool to stay and join the queue.
You've stayed with other men behind my back.
I know that if I stay, I'll surely crack.

The life I once enjoyed you've surely taken.
I'm convinced for years, I've been your clown.
The heart I gave, well, you have just forsaken.

You are the worst girl in this town.
You are the worst girl in this town.

Ah...

You are the worst girl in this town.


GIVE ME A SMILE

Ah...
It's not the way you say to me, I'll wave goodbye.
It's not the search to try to say the tears you'll cry.
Because I am crying too for the thought of leaving you.

You have to give me a smile as I leave you, treasure.
Do it in style and believe in yourself.
'Cause while I'm away I will stay firm beside you.
And then I will go with the thought that you tried not to break.

You mean heaven to me and when I return to thee
we'll see our own love.
You may not know but I do miss you earnestly.

Of all the moments in our time, there's none like this.
And every day when our lips met, there's none so bliss.
For when I say sweet c'est la vie,
I laugh and leave with tears on me.

You better give me a smile as I leave you, Heather,
Treasure yourself and find time for no else.
For while I'm away I will stay firm beside you.
And then I will leave with the thought that you tried not to cry.

Ah...


MOTHER AND JACK

La....
I got a letter in this town .
They're going to pull this old house down.
I got a letter in this town.
They're going to pull this sad house down.

Mother and Jack, they went to see the emperor.
Mother and Jack, they went to see the emperor
They got no answer.
They got no answer.
Said he would think over his drink
about this question on this house of yours.

Don't take our house away from us.
Don't take our house away from us.
He made Jack's poor hair turn grey.
He made Jack's poor hair turn grey.

I got a letter in this town.
They're going to pull this old house down.
I got a letter in this town.
They're going to see this sad house down.

Mother and Jack, they went to see the emperor.
Mother and Jack, they went to see the emperor.
They got no answer.
They got no answer.
Said he would think over his drink
about this question on this house of yours.

Don't take our house away from us.
Don't take our house away from us.

Don't take our house away from us.
La...


SAVED BY THE BELL

I cried for you,
I cried for you,
I cried for two,
I lied for you.

Saved by the bell
on your own carousel.
Now who can tell
if you'll love that man as well.
Now I'll walk down Heartbreak lane.

I died for you,
I died for two,
I'll live for you,
I'll give to you.

Saved by the bell
on your own carousel.
Now who can tell
if you'll love that man as well.
Now I'll walk down Heartbreak lane.
Now I'll walk down Heartbreak lane.
Now I'll walk down Heartbreak lane.


WEEKEND

Hello, I'm down.
Take me for this weekend.
I'm yours to borrow tomorrow, good friend.
And while I'm away
all my love I'll send
and thank you every Thursday for this weekend.

Hello sunrise, I must see your eyes.
Still I will shout.
But they're bound to find me out.

Hello, I'm down.
Take me for this weekend.
I'm yours to borrow tomorrow, good friend.
And I'm yours to borrow tomorrow, good friend.


FARMER FERDINAND HUDSON

Now it is dawn and a new day is born,
but with a trail of despair.
The new day was shining but many had gone.
Farmer Ferdinand Hudson had lost much more than he'd won.
He sat by a table and cried in his rum.

The cobwebs hung heavy and dreary beside.
All that looked at him could barely decide.
He passed for one day so to sleep in that night.
And early that morning he died.


LORD BLESS ALL

Ah....

Lord bless all.
Lord let all be blessed.
And when you sleep.
London streets are silent.

All the world is full of song.
And when you have woken,
after dawn has broken.
Snow filled fens will vaguely fill your eyes.

You'll be guided by good will.
Now the bells in your town are ringing.
Far away the joy of carols singing.
Bringing all a song to share.

Lord bless all.
Lord let all be blessed
And when you sleep.
London streets are silent.


MOST OF MY LIFE

Most of my life
I've had to run away.
Life was a game
and I just had to play.

The friends that I thought I had were never there.
You look for love,
but you don't know where.

And I'm in a race
that could be any place.
And when I was born,
my life had slowly worn.

The woman that I loved had slowly walked away.
I tried to smile but that was yesterday.

And most of my life
I've had to run away.
Life was a game
and I just had to play.

The friends that I thought I had were never there.
You look for love,
but you don't know where.

And most of my life
I've had to run away.
Life was a game
and I just had to play.

The woman that I loved had sadly walked away.
I tried to smile but that was yesterday.

And most of my life
I've had to run away.
Life was a game
and I just had to play.

The friends that I thought I had were never there.
You look for love,
but you don't know where.

Most of my life
and most of my life
and most of my life...


ONE MILLION YEARS

I'm dead, my life's been sold.
All my years are cold.
No trees to hide my head.
All my roads are red.

And in the Easter
I will see that same old sun, that shone.
And in the winter
I shall stand in seas of snow, alone.

I will wait for you, yeah.
Your eyes will shine like new, yeah.
I close my eyes and you're nowhere.
And I'll wait for you for one million years.

My face has long been wet.
Ever since we met.
We wed, I knew she'd stay.
Then I passed away.

And in the Easter
I will see that same old sun that shone.
And in the winter
I shall stand in seas of snow, alone.

I will wait for you
Just like you want me to
I close my eyes and you're nowhere
And I'll wait for you for one million years
And I'll wait for you for one million years
