RUN TO ME

If ever you got rain in your heart,
someone has hurt you and torn you apart,
am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

And let it be like they said it would be:
me loving you, girl, and you loving me.
Am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me).
Run to me if you need a shoulder.
Now and then, you need someone older,
so darling, you run to me.

And when you're out in the cold,
no one beside you and no one to hold,
am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

And when you've got nothing to lose,
nothing to pay for, nothing to choose,
am I unwise to open up your eyes to love me?

Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me).
Run to me if you need a shoulder.
Now and then you need someone older,
so darling, you run to me.
 
Run to me whenever you're lonely (to love me).
Run to me if you need a shoulder.
Now and then you need someone older,
so darling, you run to me.
Run to me...


WE LOST THE ROAD

We must have lost the road.
Don't you think it's getting late?
Maybe if it's colder,
we can stop and wait.

We must have lost the words,
all the little things we said.
And now the world is frozen.
Only you in my head.

Aah, we lost the road.
Aah, we lost the road.
Aah, we lost the road.
Aah, we lost the road.

We must have lost the tune.
Where did I step out of line?
I'll search for the melody
that calls you mine.

Aah, we lost the road.
Aah, we lost the road.
Aah, we lost the road.
Aah, we lost the road.

Aah, we lost the road (we lost the road, we lost the road, yeah).
Aah, we lost the road (ah, we lost, yeah, yeah).
Aah, we lost the road (we lost the road, we lost the road, oh yeah).
Ah, we lost the road (we lost the road,don’t you know we lost the road).

Aah, we lost the road...
 

NEVER BEEN ALONE

I've never been alone
and I've only seen the sky.
Still I know the reason why
I've been thinking it over.

I've never climbed a tree,
but that's natural for me.
And you don't know my name,
so I'm thinking it over.

And every day I'm learning
the things that are concerning you and I.
And if you were beside me, you'd know what's inside me,
so tell me why.
Give me inspiration to clear the situation
we've known too long.
And if we end up crying,
then one of us is lying, so tell me.

Never rode a plane
and I never will again.
So till then I'll drink the rain
while I'm thinking it over.

And every day I'm learning
the things that are concerning you and I.
And if you were beside me, you'd know what's inside me,
so tell me why.
Give me inspiration to clear the situation
we've known too long.
And if we end up crying,
then one of us is lying, so tell me.

Never rode a plane
and I never will again.
So till then I'll drink the rain
while I'm thinking it over.
Yes, I'm thinking it over.
 

PAPER MACHE, CABBAGES AND KINGS

Na na na ...
Paper mache and telegraph poles,
things go dead in the night
Make enough noise to make enough noise
to make you want to jump with fright.

Elephant's tusks and autograph books,
people you don't meet.
Haven't got a bed to lay my head,
shoes to fit my feet.

Don't be scared.
You're better off than nothing.
You're answering to no one.
Paper mache.

Paper mache and telegraph poles,
things go dead in the night.
Make enough noise to make enough noise
to make you want to jump with fright.

Elephant's tusks and autograph books,
people you don't meet.
Haven't got a bed to lay my head,
shoes to fit my feet.

Aah...

Don't be scared.
You're better off than nothing.
You're answering to no one (aah).
Paper mache.

All of a sudden it happened,
when you did what you said you'd do,
and you broke my heart in two
like paper mache.

All of a sudden it happened, oh.
You came into my life.
Like paper mache you broke my heart.
Like paper mache,
paper mache,
like paper mache.

Paper mache and telegraph poles,
things go dead in the night.
Make enough noise to make enough noise
to make you wanna jump with fright.

Elephant's tusks and autograph books,
people you don't meet.

La la la la ...

Jimmy had a bomb and the bomb went bang,
Jimmy was everywhere. (7 times)

 
I CAN BRING LOVE

I can make the sun shine out of the heavens,
sweet love, love you forever.
Just wait until the sun's on your pillow.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got.

I can change the whole world if you are near me.
No tears if you can hear me.
Just wait until the sun's on your pillow.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got, yeah.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ....

Just wait until the sun's on your pillow.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got.
I can bring love 'cause that's all I've got.
 
 
I HELD A PARTY

I held a party and nobody came.
Strangely I was upset.
Poured out a drink and then Birkworth approached
saying 'Have no regrets.
Maybe your gentle friends had some delay.
Don't try to take on the world.'

Made up my bed and decided to sleep,
dreaming I was awake.
Maybe I drank in excess of my drink.
Nice clan, cordial crowd.
Birkworth suggested we sleep through the night.
I never knew him so well.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
Ah, ah...
 

PLEASE DON'T TURN OUT THE LIGHT

Everytime I need reality, yeah,
in jeopardy of losing all of me.
I just am not stronger,
life don't last so long, so baby,
if your turned out the light,
if you turned out the light.

Please don't turn out the light,
please don't turn out the light.
Turn out the lights.

Baby, I don't feel too reliable.
I can only do what I'm liable.
But if you want to leave me,
love me and just leave me, baby.
If you turned out the light,
if you turned out the light.

Please don't turn out the light,
please don't turn out the light.
Turn out the lights.
Turn out the lights.
 

SEA OF SMILING FACES

Yesterday was history.
Who knows what there is gonna be
when we meet again.
Will you smile and tell the world about me?
Can there be no doubt about me, I was your friend.

As I gaze upon a sea of smiling faces,
walk amongst the glow of moonlit places,
the look in your eyes, to see your smile
won't bring you back to me.

I remember things we planned
the world would never understand
but we found a way;
and the world of love you gave to me.
Each moment is a memory
whatever they say.

As I gaze upon a sea of smiling faces,
walk amongst the glow of moonlit places.
The look in your eye, to see your smile
won't bring you back to me.

For the look in your eye, to see your smile
won't bring you back to me.

Yesterday was history.
Who knows what there is gonna be
when me meet again.
Will you smile and tell the world about me?
Can there be no doubt about me ,
I was your friend.

As I gaze upon a sea of smiling faces,
walk amongst the glow of moonlit places.
The look in your eye, to see your smile
won't bring you back to me.

For the look in your eye, to see your smile
won't bring you back to me. (3 times)
 

BAD BAD DREAMS

I've got a notion
to live in an ocean
of bad, bad dreams.

No consolation
to mixed conversation
in bad, bad dreams.

You know we're all alike.
We can shout and scream and yell all night.
It's just a bad, bad dream.

Feel like I'm crying,
there's no use denying,
it's all been done.

For your information,
we still own the nation,
the war's been won.

You know you're far too late.
Your only hangup is you hesitate.
It's just a bad, bad dream.

Bad, bad, bad dreams.
Bad, bad, bad dreams.
Bad, bad, bad dreams.
Bad, bad, bad dreams.

I'm getting it to you
so you get it through you
and make your choice.

People start playing
and back what you're saying
in just one voice.

You know you're all insane.
It doesn't matter how you play the game.
It's just a bad, bad dream.

Bad, bad, bad dreams.
Bad, bad, bad dreams.
Bad, bad, bad dreams.
Bad, bad, bad dreams.
 

YOU KNOW IT'S FOR YOU

I would die for you.
I have cried for you, believe me, girl.
Don't you think it's time
you made up your own mind?

All my love is for you.
All I do's for you.
Still I think it's time
you made up your own mind.

A melody, my symphony,
you know it's for you, love.
It's plain to see, it's meant to be.
Now it's up to you, love.

Still I'll wait for you.
Waiting just for you, don't leave me, girl.
Don't you think it's time
you made up your own mind?

Love is here for you.
Love was made for you, believe me, girl.
Don't you think it's time you gave up?
You are mine.

La da da...
La da da...

Doo doo doo doo doo doo. You know it's for you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo. You know it's for you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo. You know it's for you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo. You know it's for you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo. You know it's for you.
Doo doo doo...
 

ALIVE

Maybe you talk too high, man.
Maybe I talk too slow.
But you've got to live a little bit faster
'cause you've got a little less time to go.

I ain't lost and I ain't searching.
But then you know me very well.
And I can't change the wind
and make it blow the other way.
I'm a fool and I can tell...

... that I'm alive and that's all,
that I can get up just as fast as I fall,
and I can walk and run but I'll never crawl,
and in the end it doesn't matter at all.

I don't know about the people
that I read about in books,
and the kings and queens around my room
with their quiet and dirty looks.

I know I should be going somewhere,
I just can't arrive.
There's a reason for believing
that I've never been alive,
alive.

I ain't lost and I ain't searching.
But then you know me very well.
And I can't change the world
and make it go the other way.
I'm a fool and I can tell...

that I'm alive and that's all,
that I can get up just as fast as I fall,
and I can walk and run but I'll never crawl,
and in the end it doesn't matter at all.

I don't know about the people
that I read about in books,
and the kings and queens around my room
with their quiet and dirty looks.

I know I should be going somewhere,
I just can't arrive.
There's a reason for believing
that I've never been alive.

I know I should be going somewhere,
I just can't arrive.
There's a reason for believing
that I've never been alive,
alive, alive.
 
 
ROAD TO ALASKA

I'm on the road to Alaska,
nowhere near Nebraska,
but I'm sure if I asked her she'll know.

I ain't got no honey,
I'm so short of money.
I really, really wanna go home.

I dialed Oklahoma,
made attempts to phone her,
gave up when I got no reply.

I'm on the road to Alaska,
nowhere near Nebraska,
but I'm sure if I don't ask her I'll die.

I found Cincinatti,
out there I was happy
every single day of my life.

I had me a woman,
she started to running.
I couldn't really make her my wife.

She started to show which
way she was going,
every single road she could go.

I'm on the road to Alaska,
nowhere near Nebraska
but I'm sure if I asked her she'll know (yeah).

I made to Cincinatti,
out there I was happy
every single day of my life.

I had me a woman,
she started to running.
I couldn't really make her my wife.

She started to show which
way she was going
and every single road she could go.

I'm on the road to Alaska,
nowhere near Nebraska
but I'm sure if I asked her she'll know.
I'm sure if I ask her she'll know.
I'm sure if I ask her she'll know.

 
SWEET SONG OF SUMMER

Ah..
I can feel you, sweet song of summer.
Your music comforts my lonely reign.
I can hear you in evil darkness.
That empty feeling, I'm near you again.

I am your forever
and this I emphasize
-your never-ending hurting-
and criticize.

Ah...

We are friends forever
and this I emphasize
-your never-ending hurting-
and criticize.
 
Ah....
