Sail Away Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Rust Never Sleeps

I could live inside a tepee
I could die
in Penthouse thirty-five
You could lose me on the freeway
But I would still
make it back alive.

As long as we can sail away
As long as we can sail away
There'll be wind in the canyon
Moon on the rise
As long as we can sail away.

See the losers in the best bars
Meet the winners in the dives
Where the people are the real stars
All the rest of their lives.

As long as we can sail away
As long as we can sail away
There'll be wind in the canyon
Moon on the rise
As long as we can sail away.

There's a road
stretched out between us
Like a ribbon on the high plain
Down from Phoenix through Salinas
'Round the bend and back again.

As long as we can sail away
As long as we can sail away
There'll be wind in the canyon
Moon on the rise
As long as we can sail away
As long as we can sail away.

Powderfinger Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Rust Never Sleeps

Look out, Mama,
there's a white boat
comin' up the river
With a big red beacon,
and a flag,
and a man on the rail
I think you'd better call John,
'Cause it don't
look like they're here
to deliver the mail
And it's less than a mile away
I hope they didn't come to stay
It's got numbers on the side
and a gun
And it's makin' big waves.

Daddy's gone,
my brother's out hunting
in the mountains
Big John's been drinking
since the river took Emmy-Lou
So the powers that be
left me here
to do the thinkin'
And I just turned twenty-two
I was wonderin' what to do
And the closer they got,
The more those feelings grew.

Daddy's rifle in my hand
felt reassurin'
He told me,
Red means run, son,
numbers add up to nothin'
But when the first shot
hit the docks I saw it comin'
Raised my rifle to my eye
Never stopped to wonder why.
Then I saw black,
And my face splashed in the sky.

Shelter me from the powder
and the finger
Cover me with the thought
that pulled the trigger
Think of me
as one you'd never figured
Would fade away so young
With so much left undone
Remember me to my love,
I know I'll miss her.

Welfare Mothers Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Rust Never Sleeps

People, pick up
on what I'm puttin' down now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Down at every
Laundromat in town now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

While they're washin'
you can hear this sound now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Divorcee!

Hard to believe
that love is free now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Out on the street
with the whole family now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Hard to believe
that love is free now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Divorcee!

People, pick up
on what I'm puttin' down now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Down in every
Laundromat in town now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

While they're washin'
you can hear this sound now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Divorcee!

Sedan Delivery Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Rust Never Sleeps

Last night I was cool
at the pool hall
Held the table for eleven games
Nothing was easier
than the first seven
I beat a woman with varicose veins.

She stopped to see
herself in the mirror
Fix her hair and hide heir veins
And she lost the game.

Next day I went to the dentist
He pulled some teeth
and I lost some blood
We'd like to thank you
for the cards you sent us
My wives and I were all choked up.

I recall how Caesar and Cleo
Made love in the Milky Way
They needed boats
and armies to get there
I know there's a better way.

I saw the movie and I read the book
But when it happened to me
I sure was glad I had what it took
To get away.

Gotta get away, gotta get away
Gotta get away, gotta get away

I'm making another delivery
Of chemicals and sacred roots
I'll hold what you have to give me
But I'll use what I have to use.

The lasers are in the lab
The old man
is dressed in white clothes
Everybody says he's mad
No one knows
the things that he knows.

No one knows, no one knows
No one knows, no one knows

I'm sleepin' in every hallway
I just can't accept the stares
I'm using too many covers
I'm warm now so I don't care.

I'm thinkin' of no one in my mind
Sedan delivery
is a job I know I'll keep
It sure was hard to find.

Hard to find. hard to find
Hard to find. hard to find

Little Wing Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

All her friends call her Little Wing
But she flies rings around them all
She comes to town when the children sing
And leaves them feathers as if they fall
She leaves them feathers as if they fall

Little Wing, don't fly away
When the summer turns to fall
Don't you know some people say
The winter is the best time of them all
Winter is the best of all.

Old Homestead Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

Up and down the old homestead
The naked rider gallops
through his head
And although the moon isn't full
He still feels the pull.

Out on the floor
where the cowboys dance
Approaching slowly at a glance
Here comes the shadow of his stance
The reins are fallin'
from his hands.

Why do you ride that crazy horse?
Inquires the shadow
with little remorse
Just then a priest
comes down the stairs
With a sack of dreams
and old nightmares.

Who are you, the rider says
You dress in black
but you talk like a Fed
You spout ideas
from books that you read
Don't you care about
this guy's head?

Just then the sound
of hoofbeats was heard
And the sky was darkened
by a prehistoric bird
Who flew between
the unfulfilled moon
And the naked rider,
to a telephone booth.

We'll call the moon
and see what's up
I've got some change
in this little tin cup
We'll say that
the shadow is growin' dim
And we need some light
to get back to him
Just one call should do it all
I'll carve this number on the wall
With my beak.

Flying feathers were all around
The air was filled
with a ringing sound.
Two more birds,
the second and the third
Came down from the sky
to deliver the word.

Where have you been,
they said to the first
Get back to the clouds,
we're dying of thirst
There's not enough time
to make that call
Let's ditch this rider,
shadow and all.

The sky was filled
with the beautiful birds
Still on the ground
some crying was heard
With his dime in his hand
and his hand on the dial
His ears were sweating
as he forced a smile.

Hoofbeats beating across the range
He rode through the night
with his cup of change
Tired and beaten
he fell into slumber
But up in the sky
they still had his number.

Up and down the old homestead
The naked rider gallops
through his head
And although the moon isn't full
He still feels the pull,
Still feels the pull.

Lost In Space Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

Live with me, live with me
Live with me, live with me
Live with me.

Lost in space
I heard you were lost in space
That's such a lonely place
for you to be.

Out of control
Singin' with too much soul
I heard you got out on parole
Workin' for the queen.

Gardening again
Landscape again
Keepin' all the grounds
around her clean
Workin' for the queen.

Don't take out the magic pen
Don't draw on the infinity board
Your buildings, if they rise again
Would do much better
on the ocean floor
They'll never feel the way
they did before
They did before.

Out on the ocean floor,
out on the ocean floor
What could be stranger
than the unknown danger
That lies on the ocean floor?

Breakers crash on the beach
I count them like lambs in my sleep
They come at me steady
They know I'm not ready
They pound on my mattress door
Have they got a big one in store.

Losing you
I heard I was losing you
That's not the only thing
that I got to lose
I got to lose
The deep sea blues
Look at these blues
The deep sea blues

Live with me, live with me.

Captain Kennedy Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

I am a young mariner headed to war
I'm thinkin' 'bout my family
and what it was for
There's water on the wood
and the sails feel good
And when I get to shore
I hope that I can kill good.

My father was a sailor
named Captain Kennedy
He lost his wooden schooner
to the Germans on the sea
Exploded on the water
for everyone to see
And humiliate that American
Captain Kennedy.

I saw him in Nassau in 1971
His strength was failin'
but he still ran a run
He worked 'til his fingers
wore to the bone
To buy that wooden schooner
and sail on his own.

He was known in the islands
as hundred foot iron
That steel hull freighter
was passin' its time
And time flew by faster
with life on the sea
And the days grew shorter
for Captain Kennedy.

I am a young mariner headed to war
I'm thinkin' 'bout my family
and what it was for
There's water on the wood
and the sails feel good
And when I get to shore
I hope that I can kill good.

Stayin' Power Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

Our love, baby, feels so right
When you're smilin' in the morning light
I ain't leavin' no way

'Cause we got stayin' power
You and I
Stayin' power through thick and thin.

Stayin' power
You and I
Stayin' power through thick and thin.

Gold and diamonds say you're mine
But true love opens the gates of time
And as we go on our way

We got stayin' power
You and I
Stayin' power through thick and thin

Stayin' power
You and I
Stayin' power through thick and thin.

Coastline Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

Down on the coastline, Highway One
People headin' out for the sun
That's where I found you,
long time ago.

You're my angel, you're my queen
You're my best friends in between
We don't back down from no trouble
We do get up in the mornin'.

Oooweee, baby, what a night
That old moon sure is shinin' bright
We'll be dancin'
'til the mornin' comes.

High on the mountain top
above the clouds
No wonder we get a little loud
We don't back down from no trouble
We do get up in the mornin'.

Union Man Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

I'm proud to a union man
I make those meetings when I can, yeah
I pay my dues ahead of time
When the benefits come
I'm last in line, yeah.

I'm proud to be a union man.

Every fourth Friday at 10 am
There's a local meeting
of the A F of M, yeah!

This meeting will now come to order
Is there any new business?

Yeah, I think 'Live music are better'
Bumper stickers should be issued.

What was that?

'Live music is better' bumper stickers
Should be issued

The gentleman says
'Live music is better' bumper stickers
Should be issued
All in favor of what he said
Signify by sayin' "ay"

Ay!

If, however, you are opposed
Signify by saying "no".

I'm proud to be a union man.

Hawks & Doves Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

Ain't getting old,
ain't getting younger though
Just getting used
to the lay of the land
I ain't tongue-tied,
just don't got nothin' to say
I'm proud to be livin' in the U.S.A.

Ready to go, willin' to stay and pay
U.S.A., U.S.A.
So my sweet love can dance
another free day
U.S.A., U.S.A.

In history we painted pictures grim
The devil knows
we might feel that way again
The big wind blows,
so the tall grass bends
But for you don't
push too hard my friend.

Ready to go, willin' to stay and pay
U.S.A., U.S.A.
So my sweet wife can dance
another free day
U.S.A., U.S.A.

Got people here
down on their knees and prayin'
Hawks and doves
are circlin' in the rain
Got rock and roll,
got country music playin'
If you hate us, you just
don't know what you're sayin'.

Ready to go, willin' to stay and pay
U.S.A., U.S.A.
So my sweet love can dance
another free day
U.S.A., U.S.A.

Comin' Apart At Every Nail Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Hawks And Doves

It's awful hard to find a job
On one side the government,
the other the mob
Hey, hey ain't that right
The workin' man's in
for a hell of a fight.

Oh, this country
sure looks good to me
But these fences are
comin' apart at every nail.

Way up on the old dew line
Some of the boys were feelin' fine
A big light flashed across the sky
But somethin' else went slippin' by
Meanwhile at the Pentagon
The brass was a wonderin'
what went wrong.

Oh, this country
sure looks good to me
But these fences are
comin' apart at every nail.

Hey hey, ain't that right
The workin' man's in
for a hell of a fight.

Oh, this country
sure looks good to me
But these fences are
comin' apart at every nail.

Opera Star Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Re-ac-tor

So your girlfriend
slammed the door shut
In your face tonight,
but that's all right
Then she took off
to the opera
With some highbrow
from the city lights
Well, you grew up on a corner
You never missed a moonlit night.

Some things never change,
they stay the way they are.
You were born to rock,
you'll never be an opera star
Some things never change,
they stay the way they are.

So you stay out all night
Gettin' fucked up
in that rock and roll bar
And you never get tired
'Cause your drugs
are in a little jar.

You were born to rock,
you'll never be an opera star.
Some things never change,
they stay the way they are.

I was born to rock!

So your girlfriend
slammed the door shut
In your face tonight,
but that's all right
Then she took off
to the opera
With some highbrow
from the city lights
Well, you grew up on a corner
You never missed a moonlit night.

Some things never change,
they stay the way they are.
You were born to rock,
you'll never be an opera star.

Surfer Joe And Moe The Sleaze Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Re-ac-tor

Here's a story about Surfer Joe
He caught the big one,
but he let it go
There's somebody satisfied
with winning.

Back on the boardwalk
there's Moe the Sleaze
Sells good things
and aims to please
He's almost even but
he doesn't mind a handout.

Come on down
for a pleasure cruise
We're all going
on a pleasure cruise
Come on down
for a pleasure cruise
Plenty of women,
plenty of booze.

Give your ticket
to Moe the Sleaze
He's the one that's
weak in the knees
His pants are baggy,
but you can see them shaking.

I'll introduce you to Surfer Joe
He may be there,
I really don't know
We can smoke garfong
and watch him ride
the big one.

Come on down
for a pleasure cruise
We're all going
on a pleasure cruise
Come on down
for a pleasure cruise
Plenty of women,
plenty of booze.

Come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on.

Here's a story about Surfer Joe
He caught the big one,
and he let it go
There's somebody satisfied
with winning.

Here's a story about Surfer Joe
He caught the big one,
and he let it go
He's somebody satisfied
with winning.
He's somebody.

Get Back On It Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Re-ac-tor

Think I'll get back on the highway
I hope I'll see you soon
Get back on it, get back on it
Think I'll get back on the highway
I hope I'll see you soon
Get back on it, get back on it
I may be late in comin' though
I got some things I gotta do

Don't let me see your tail lights
I pull a heavy load
Get back on it, get back on it
Don't let me see your tail lights
I pull a heavy load
Get back on it, get back on it
There ain't no way
to stop it though
Oh, it might explode.

It's too late for General Custer
Too late for Robert E. Lee
Get back on it, get back on it
It's too late for General Custer
Too late for Robert E. Lee
Get back on it, get back on it
But I'll get back on the highway
Before it's too late for me
Get back on it, get back on it.

Think I'll get back on the highway
I hope I'll see you soon
Get back on it, get back on it
Think I'll get back on the highway
I hope I'll see you soon
Get back on it, get back on it
I may be late in comin' though
I got some things I gotta do.

Southern Pacific Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Re-ac-tor

Down the mountainside
To the coastline
Past the angry tide
The mighty diesel whines.

And the tunnel comes
And the tunnel goes
Round another bend
The giant drivers roll.

I rode the Highball
I fired the Daylight
When I turned sixty-five
I couldn't see right.

It was Mr. Jones,
We've got to let you go
It's company policy
You've got a pension though.

Roll on, Southern Pacific
On your silver rails
On your silver rails
Roll on, Southern Pacific
On your silver rails
Through the moonlight.

I put in my time
I put in my time
Now I'm left to roll
Down the long decline.

I ain't no brake man
Ain't no conductor
But I would be though
If I was younger.

Roll on, Southern Pacific
On your silver rails
On your silver rails
Roll on, Southern Pacific
Roll on, on your silver rails.

Motor City Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Re-ac-tor

My old car keeps breaking down
My new car ain't from Japan
There's already too many Datsuns
In this town.

Another thing that's bugging me
Is this commercial on TV
Says that Detroit
can't make good cars any more.
Motor City.

Who's driving my car?
Who's driving my car now?
Who?

My army jeep is still alive
Got locking hubs and four wheel drive
Ain't got no radio,
ain't got no mag wheels
Ain't got no digital clock
Ain't got no clock.

The paint job is lookin' blue
The white walls are missing too
But I guess until I get my car back
This will do.

Who's driving my car now?
Who's driving my car now?
Who?

Who's driving my car now?

Rapid transit.
Public service.
I'm standing in my line.

Melt down.
Containment.
I'm standing in my line

Hang ten pipeline,

Hang ten pipeline,

Hang ten pipeline,

Every wave is new
until it breaks.

Go!

Secret service
Public enemy
I'm standing in my line

Hang ten pipeline,

Hang ten pipeline,
let's go trippin'
Hang ten pipeline,
no way rockin'
Every wave is new
until it breaks.

Go!

Shots Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Re-ac-tor

Shots
Ringing all along the borders
can be heard
Striking out
like a venom in the sky
Cutting through the air
faster than a bird
In the night.

Children
Are lost in the sand,
building roads
with little hands
Trying to join
their father's castles
together again
Will they make it?
Who knows where or when
Old wounds will mend?

Machines
Are winding their way along,
looking strong
Building roads
and bringing back
loads and loads
Of building materials
In the night

Men
Are trying to move the borders
on the ground
Lines between the different spots
that each has found
But back home
another scene was going down
In the night.

Lust
Comes creepin' through the night
to feed on hearts
Of suburban wives
who learned to pretend
When they met their dream's end
In the night.

Shots
I hear shots, I keep hearing shots
I keep hearing shots
I hear shots.

Shots
I hear shots, I keep hearing shots
I keep hearing shots
I hear shots.

But I'll never use your love,
You know I'm not that kind
And so if you give your heart away
I promise to you
Whatever we do
That I will always be true.

Little Thing Called Love Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Trans

See somebody
walkin' down the street
Hangin' head
and a-shufflin' feet
Don't take much to see
What they've been thinkin' of.
What makes you hypnotized?
What puts a tear in your eye?
What makes you have to choose?
What brings you the blues?
A little thing called love
A little thing called love.

Only love puts a tear in your eye
Only love makes you hypnotized
Only love makes you choose
Only love brings you the blues.

Wait a minute now, honey
Don't be sad
This may be
the best love you ever had
That don't mean
that you had enough
A little thing called love
A little thing called love.

Only love puts a tear in your eye
Only love makes you hypnotized
Only love makes you choose
Only love brings you the blues.

A little thing called love
A little thing called love.

Computer Age Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Trans

Cars and trucks
Fly by me on the corner
But I'm all right
Standin' proud
before the signal
When I see the light
I know I'm more
than just a number.
And I stand before you
Or else we
just don't see the other
Computer age computer age
Computer age.

Bikes and vans
Fly by me on the desert
But I'm all right
Standing out here
in the hot sun
When I see the light
I feel like
more than just a number
And I stand before you
Or else we
just don't see the other
Computer age computer age
Computer age.

Precious metal lines
Molded into highways
Running through me
So microscopically
Days and nights
Weeks and months and seasons
Rolling through me
So chronologically.
Computer age computer age
Computer age.

I need you
To let me know
that there's a heartbeat
Let it pound and pound
And I'll be
flying like a free bird
And you need me
Like ugly needs a mirror
And day by day
This horizon's getting clearer
Computer age computer age
Computer age.

Transformer man, transformer man
You run the show
Remote control
Direct the action
with the push of a button
You're a transformer man
Power in your hand
Transformer man, transformer man.

Transformer man, transformer man
Sooner or later you'll have to see
The cause and effect
So many things still left to do
But we haven't made it yet
Every morning
when I look in your eyes
I feel electrified by you. Oh yes.

Transformer man, transformer man
Transformer man
Still in command
You're eyes are shining on a beam
Through the galaxy of love
Transformer man, transformer man
Unlock the secrets
Let us throw off the chains that
Hold you down.

Transformer man, transformer man
Sooner or later
you'll have to learn
The cause and effect
So many things still left to do
But we haven't made it yet
Every morning
when I look in your eyes
I feel electrified by you. Oh yes.

Transformer man, transformer man

Computer Cowboy Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Trans

Well, his cattle each have numbers
And they all eat in a line
When he turns the floodlights
on each night
Of course the herd looks perfect!
Computer Cowboy.

Well, he rides
the range 'til midnight
And the wild coyotes yowl
As he trots

Hold On To Your Love Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Trans

Hold on to your love
Hold on to your love
Though you may feel
tired and blue.
The things you say,
The things you dream
you might do,
Come true if you
Hold on to your love.

How long the day?
How dark the night
spent apart?
Is this the way to learn?
Go your own way
Although you may
break a heart
Don't let it start
Hold on to your love.

Hold on to your love.
Hold on to your love.

The things you say,
The things you dream
you might do,
If only you
hold on to your love.
Hold on to your love.

Like An Inca Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Trans

Said the condor
to the preying mantis
We're gonna lose this place
just like we lost Atlantis
Brother we got to go
sooner than you know
The Gypsy told my fortune,
she said that nothin' showed.

Who put the bomb
on the sacred altar?
Why should we die
if it comes our way?
Why should we care
about a little button
Being pushed by someone
we don't even know?

Well. I wish I was an Aztec,
Or a runner in Peru
I would build such
beautiful buildings
To house the chosen few
Like an Inca from Peru.

If you want to get high,
build a strong foundation
Sink those pylons deep now
and reach for the sky
If you want to get lost
in the jungle rhythm
Get down on the ground
and pretend you're swimmin'.

If you want to put ice
in the lava river
First you must climb,
then you must stand and shiver
Brother we got to go
sooner than you know
The Gypsy told my fortune,
the Gypsy told my fortune,
The Gypsy told my fortune,
she said that nothing showed

Well I wish I was an Aztec,
Or a runner in Peru
I would build
such beautiful buildings
To house the chosen few
Like an Inca from Peru.

Said the condor
to the preying mantis
We're gonna lose this place
just like we lost Atlantis
Brother we got to go
sooner than you know
The Gypsy told my fortune,
the Gypsy told my fortune,
The Gypsy told my fortune,
she said that nothin' showed.

Who put the bomb
on the sacred altar?
Why should we die
if it comes our way?
Why should we care
about a little button
Being pushed by someone
we don't even know?

Well. I wish I was an Aztec,
Or a runner in Peru
I would build
such beautiful buildings
To house the chosen few
Like an Inca from Peru.

I feel sad, but I feel happy
As I'm coming back to home
There's a bridge across the river
That I have to cross alone
Like a skipping rolling stone
Like an Inca.

Payola Blues Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Everybody's Rockin'

This one's for you Al Freed,
Wherever you go, whatever you do
'Cause the things they're doing today
Will make a saint out of you
Payola blues.
I've got the payola blues
Even though I already paid my dues.

Listen to me Mr. D.J.,
hear what I've got to say
If a man is making music,
they ought to let his record play.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

Well, here's three thousand,
that ought to get it on.
Well, thanks a lot man!
I love your new song.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

And it goes like this.

I got a brand new record company,
new manager too.
Got a great new record,
I can't get through to you.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

How about this new Mercedes Benz,
that ought to get it on.
Well, thanks a lot man!
I'll play it all day long.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

I've got the payola blues, payola blues
I'm paying those payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

I've been walking all night long
My footsteps made me crazy
Baby, you've been gone so long
I'm wonderin' if you'll come home

To keep my heart from sadness
Baby, you've been gone so long
I'm wonderin' if you'll come home
I'm hopin' that you'll be my baby

Knowin' that I need you to save me.

Tried Peggy Sue
Had a date with Donna

But I'm kinda fonda Wanda.

Screwed runaround Sue

get out on the floor
They rock until they drop

Wayward Wind Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

In the lonely shack
by the railroad track
I spent my younger days
And I guess the sound
of the outward bound
Made me a slave
to my wanderin' ways.

And the wayward wind
is a restless wind
A restless wind
that yearns to wander
And I was born
the next of kin
The next of kin
to the wayward wind.

Oh, I met him down
in the border town
He vowed we'd never part
Though he tried his best
to settle down
Now I'm all alone
with a broken heart.

And the wayward wind
is a restless wind
A restless wind
that yearns to wander
And I was born
the next of kin
The next of kin
to the wayward wind.

And the wayward wind
is a restless wind
A restless wind
that yearns to wander
And I was born
the next of kin
The next of kin
to the wayward wind.

The next of kin
to the wayward wind.

Old Ways Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

Old ways,
it sure is hard
to change 'em
Come what may
It's hard to teach
a dinosaur a new trick
Lately I've been finding out
I'm set in my ways
Old ways,
can be your ball
and chain.

Oh, I'm gonna stop that grass
And give up all this drinking
Really gonna make my life last
Clean up my whole way of living
Up until the party last night
I was a different man
But old ways
got their way again.

The economy was getting so bad
I had to lay myself off
Well, working was a habit I had
So I kept showin' up anyway
Then one day
things turned around
I got my back pay
Old ways
comin' through again.

I got old ways.

Are There Any More Real Cowboys? Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

Are there any more
real cowboys
Left out in these hills?
Will the fire hit the iron
One more time?
And will one more
dusty pick-up
Coming rolling down the road
With a load of feed
before the sun gets high?
Well, I hope that
working cowboy never dies.

Not the one
that's snortin' cocaine
When the honky-tonk's all closed
But the one
that prays for more rain
Heaven knows
That the good feed
brings the money
And the money buys the clothes
Not the diamond sequins
shining on TV
But the kind the
working cowboy really needs.

Are there any more
country families
Still working hand in hand
Trying hard to stay together
And make a stand?
While the rows and rows of houses
Come creepin' up on the land
Where the cattle graze and
an old grey barn still stands
Are there any more
real cowboys in this land?

Are there any more
real cowboys in this land?

Once An Angel Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

Once an angel
Always an angel
You're as close to heaven
As I'll ever be

It's been six years now
Since my ring
slipped on your finger
And those years have made
A better man out of me.

Once an angel
Always an angel
You're as close to heaven
As I'll ever be.

There've been times when
I've treated you so badly
I've done things I know
You'll never understand.

But you take me back
Turn your eyes
towards the window
Where you hide the tears
You don't want me to see.

Once an angel
Always an angel
You're as close to heaven
As I'll ever be.

Once an angel
Always an angel
You're as close to heaven
As I'll ever be.

You're as close to heaven
As I'll ever be.

Misfits Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

Up in that new space station
Living Kennedy's dream
There was an automatic camera
Shooting elephantine.

Well the crew was relaxing
Before the video screen
Watching old re-runs
Of Mohammed Ali.

The voice of Houston callin'
Brought them back to the scene
Except the sky is fallin'
Do you know what that means?

Out on that Texas sidewalk
Through the hotel mezzanine
There walked a see-thru' hooker
To a suite with two TVs.

But by the elevator
She began to sneeze
With an attack so uncontrolled
It brought her to her knees.

And then the hotel doctor
With nurse and stethoscope
Announced the worst is over
But for her there is no hope.

Way down in South Dakota
On the Needles Highway
There's a lone red rider
On the road today.

And though his war is over
He's fightin' on anyway
Although he's seldom sober
He's drinking whisky all day.

Down in that old box canyon
Where only misfits can go
He rides with no companion
But saloon and rodeo.

Up in that new space station
Living Kennedy's dream
There's an automatic camera
Shooting elephantine.

Well the crew is relaxing
Before the video screen
Watching old re-runs
Of Mohammed Ali.

The voice of Houston callin'
Brought them back to the scene
Except the sky is fallin'
Do you know what that means?

California Sunset Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

I remember long ago
How I wondered where I'd go
While the blizzards,
cold wind and snow
Pounded outside my window.

California sunset
Going down in the West
All the colors in the sky
Kiss another day goodbye.

Land of beauty,
space and light
Land of promise,
land of might
You're my home now
and it's true
California, here's to you.

California sunset
Going down in the West
All the colors in the sky
Kiss another day goodbye.

California sunset
Going down in the West
All the colors in the sky
Kiss another day goodbye.

The golden state!

Where Is The Highway Tonight? Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

I would be feelin' so low
She'd have a new place to go
She'd take me in her arms
And show me all her charms
Until my troubles were gone.

Then when I left her behind
Never a tear could I find
Just a haunting melody
Comin' back to me
Where is the highway tonight?

Where is the highway tonight?
Where are those old days
and crazy nights?

Now the house is
all quiet and still
Coyote howls on the hill
How far did I go
Before we said hello
Where is the highway tonight?

Darlin', you'll always be mine
I'll never treat you unkind
But a haunting melody
Keeps comin' back to me
Where is the highway tonight?

Where is the highway tonight?
Where are those old days
and crazy nights?

A haunting melody
Keeps comin' back to me
Where is the highway tonight?

My Boy Lyrics

Why are you growin' up so fast
My boy?
Oh, you'd better take your time.
Why are you growin' up so fast
My son?

Almost time to live your dream
My boy.
Oh, you'd better take your time.
Almost time to make some plans
My son.

Vacation gone, school is out,
Summer ends year in year out.

Oh, you'd better take your time
My boy.
I thought we had just begun.
Why are you growin' up so fast
My son?

Vacation gone, school is out,
Summer ends year in year out.

Why are you growin' up so fast
My boy?

Why are you growin' up so fast
My son?

Bound For Glory Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Old Ways

Out on the trans-Canada highway
There was a girl
hitchhiking with her dog
Fireflies buzzin' round her head
Like candles in the fog.

He was three miles down the road
Tryin' to stay up,
but he knew that he couldn't
She was looking
for a ride through the night
But out there, who wouldn't.

They were bound for glory
Bound for living on the edge
They were bound for each other
Like two comets heading for a bed.

She had a new way of living
New way of looking at life
He had an
'84 International and two kids
He left back home with his wife.

He was tired of
writin' letters to himself
And living in the dark
She was open to suggestions
And some say
she had a broken heart.

He had everything he wanted
'Til it all
turned out to be a job
One fallen asleep trucker
And a girl
hitchhiking with her dog.

They were bound for glory
Bound for living on the edge
They were bound for each other
Like two comets heading for a bed.

She had a new way of living
New way of looking at life
He had an
'84 International and two kids
He left back home with his wife.

Out on the trans-Canada highway
The sun came climbing up the cab
By the time it hit the window
they were wakin' up
From what little sleep they had.

When that heat hit the blankets
They were looking
for love at second sight
Just starin' in each others' eyes
Findin' it in the mornin' light.

They were bound for glory
Bound for living on the edge
They were bound for each other
Like two blankets layin' on a bed.

She had a new way of living
New way of looking at life
He had an
'84 International and two kids
He left back home with his wife.

Weight Of The World Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

I used to carry
the weight of the world
On my back
I never trusted
my friends or my girl
Can you imagine that
I used to shuffle my feet
When I walked
I hung my head down low
Kept to myself
all my private thoughts
But when I met you girl.

I dropped the
weight of the world
Weight of the world
I dropped the
weight of the world
Weight of the world.

I knew some people
used to dance all night
But not me
I never knew
if it was wrong or right
To be so free
I used to close my eyes
And try to hide
from the light of love
Spent all my time
with the darkness inside
But when I met you girl.

I dropped
the weight of the world
Weight of the world
I dropped
the weight of the world
Weight of the world.

I was alone
for all of my life
I was alone
for all of my life
I was alone
for all of my life
I was alone
for all of my life
Until you came my way
I dropped
the weight of the world
Weight of the world
I dropped
the weight of the world
Weight of the world.

Violent Side Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

Here comes the night
Here comes the anger
Hidden so deep inside
No one can see
Behind these eyes
There walks a stranger
Wandering through the dark
Following me.

Control the violent side
Control the violent side
Control the violent side
Control the violent side.

Electric light
Shining on your block
Sayin' to everyone
The power is on
While your alarm
Set up for safety
Keeps out invaders who come
But still can't control.

Control the violent side
Control the violent side
Control the violent side
Control the violent side.

Got to fight to control
the violent side
Every day and night
I've got to fight
to control it.

Hippie Dream Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

Take my advice
Don't listen to me
It ain't paradise
But it used to be
There was a time
When the river was wide
And the water
came running down
To the rising tide
But the wooden ships
Were just a hippie dream
Just a hippie dream.

Don't bat an eye
Don't waste a word
Don't mention nothin'
That could go unheard
'Cause the tie-dye sails
Are the screamin' sheets
And the dusty trail
Leads to blood
in the streets
And the wooden ships
Are a hippie dream
Capsized in excess
If you know what I mean.

Just because
it's over for you
Don't mean
it's over for me
It's a victory
for the heart
Every time
the music starts
So please
don't kill the machine
Don't kill the machine
Don't kill the machine.

Another flower child
goes to seed
In an ether-filled
room of meat-hooks
It's so ugly
So ugly.

Bad News Beat Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

Have you heard the news
I lost my baby to another man
I got a bulletin of news
Late breaking story
that I don't understand
Should I call her up late
Should I ask her
how she really feels
Should I try to make a date
For a time when we can touch
And feel.

She' so on fire
She's my desire.

I've got the bad news beat
And my reception
is loud and clear
I've got a
man in the street
Telling me what
I don't want to hear
I've got an eye in the sky
Taking pictures that
I don't want to see
She's got a brand new guy
Looks like she's
never coming back
To me.

She' so on fire
She's my desire.

I've got an
eye in the sky
I've got a
man in the street
I've got
the bad news beat
I've got
the bad news beat

Touch The Night Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

Out on the road
the traffic slowed
down to a crawl
Strobe lights flashin'
on the overpass
The tangled steel
could not reveal
what no one saw
Or how he walked away
without a scratch
He thought of her
and walked along
the exit ramp
He touched the night
between two
old street lamps.

And every one
will touch the night
And every one
will touch the night
And every one
will touch the night.

Imagine blue
dissolve into
the empty night
Slowly fadin'
no one answerin'
She walked away
and left him standing
all alone
Between the shadows
of his memory
And those who loved
and lost will know
the way it feels
To touch the night
without the one
you love.

And every one
will touch the night
And every one
will touch the night
And every one
will touch the night.

People On The Street Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

People on the street
need a place to go
People on the street
need a place to go
Walkin' with the beat
if it's not too slow
Walkin' with the beat
if it's not too slow
When the night's
dark shadow falls
On the sidewalk scenes and
the concrete canyon walls.

People on the street
need a place to go
People on the street
need a place to go.

Walkin' through the night
up and down the avenue
Lookin' for a place,
A place to go,
A place to go.

There's a muffled scream
from the alley scene
From the alley scene
comes a muffled scream
And the siren wails
while the system fails
In the steaming heat
people walk in the street
People can't run and hide
If you want to feel good then
you gotta feel good inside.

People on the street
need a place to go
People on the street
need a place to go.

Rising through the grates
come the fumes of industry
Floating to the sky
Keep walkin' with the beat,
walkin' with the beat
Keep walkin' with the beat,
walkin' with the beat
Keep walkin' with the beat,
walkin' with the beat
When the night's
dark shadow falls
On the sidewalk scenes and
the concrete canyon walls.

People on the street
need a place to go
People on the street
need a place to go.

Hard Luck Stories Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

Don't tell me hard luck stories
And I won't tell you mine
Don't tell me hard luck stories
And I won't tell you mine.

Every time you're feelin' fine
Got another good one on the line
It slips away,
You feel it slip away, slip away.

I don't want no more from you
Won't do what you want me to
Turn me loose
Come on turn me loose,
turn me loose.

Every time I'm feelin' good
The phone rings
and I knock on wood
Hoping that it won't be you
Calling like you always do.

All you ever seem to say is
How much bad luck came your way
You won't try to start again
You just count
on your old friends.

Don't tell me hard luck stories
And I won't tell you mine
Don't tell me hard luck stories
And I won't tell you mine.

Now you call up every day
Got no money no place to stay
That girl made a mess of you
You got what was comin' too.

Build her up and let her down
Tastin' everythin' in town
Treat her right, you never
Treat her right, treat her right.

Now she's gone and you're alone
Bite your fingers to the bone
Slip away,
You feel it slip away, slip away.

You don't know what's goin' on
How you lost it, what went wrong
What ever happened to
The love that you once knew.

Don't tell me hard luck stories
And I won't tell you mine
Don't tell me hard luck stories
And I won't tell you mine.

I Got A Problem Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

I got a problem
I can't explain
It's hard to solve it,
I can't lose face
They all try to help me,
but I can't see the light.

Me and my shadow
are so in despair
'Cause we keep hurtin'
someone who cares
Every time we talk about it
I break out in a cold sweat
There must be
some way outta here,
but I can't find it yet.

I got a problem
that's so intense
I try to fight it,
but there's no defense.

Every time we talk about it
I break out in a cold sweat
There must be
some way outta here,
but I can't find it yet.

I got a problem,
I got a problem
I got a problem,
I got a problem
Every time we talk about it
I break out in a cold sweat.

Pressure Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

A funny thing
happened yesterday
I felt the pressure
in a brand new way
It kept hitting me
from all directions
I got this feeling
I was cracking up
My knees were shaking and
I couldn't close my eyes
I fought to gain control
and make corrections
A funny thing
happened yesterday
I felt the pressure
in a TV way.

Don't feel, don't feel
Feel pressure from me
Don't feel, don't feel
No pressure from me
Don't feel, don't feel
Feel pressure from me.

You watch the box
and the video jocks
If you could talk that
could even be you up there
That's why you need
max head room
Too much pressure
for peace on earth
Too much tryin'
to get your money's worth
Too much dying
The Eldorado,
the Mercedes Benz
The job security
that never ends.

Don't feel, don't feel
Feel pressure from me
Don't feel, don't feel
No pressure from me
Don't feel, don't feel
Feel pressure from me
Don't feel, don't feel
No pressure from me.

I feel the pressure
building every night
One of these days I'm gonna
go out like a light
Oh, baby
I feel the pressure
building every night
One of these days I'm gonna
go out like a light.

Drifter Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Landing On Water

I'm just a drifter
I'll stay until you
try to tie me down
I'm not a quitter, baby
I'd like to stay and see
the whole thing go down.

Don't try to tell me
What I gotta do to fit
Don't try to rescue me,
I'm gonna go with my ship.

What about you, did I ever
take a thing from you?
What about me, how do I know
that your love is true?
What about you,
how can I count on you
to count on me?

I like to drive my car
If I've got someplace to go
I like to feel the wheel
Put down the top
and let it roll.

Don't try to fence me in,
Don't try to slow me down
Don't try to speed me up,
Or tie my feet
down to the ground.

What about you, did I ever
take a thing from you?
What about me, how do I know
that your love is true?
What about you,
how can I count on you
to count on me?

I'm just a drifter
I'll stay until
you try to tie me down
Don't try to rescue me,
Don't try to rescue me
I like to feel the wheel,
I like to feel the wheel
I like to feel the wheel.

Mideast Vacation Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

I used to watch "Highway Patrol"
Whittlin' with my knife
But the thought never struck me
I'd be black and white for life
I was raised on law and order
I a community of strife
Became a restless boarder
And I never took a wife.

I went lookin' for Khaddafi
Aboard Air Force One
But I never did find him
And the C.I.A. said Son,
You'll never be a hero
Your flyin' days are done
It's time for you to go home now
Stop sniffin' that smokin' gun.

I was travellin' with my family
In the Mideast late one night
In the hotel all was quiet
The kids were out like little lights
Then the street was filled with jeeps
There was an explosion to the right
They chanted "Death to America"
I was feelin' like a fight.

So I ran downstairs
And out into the street
Someone kicked me in the belly
Someone else kissed my feet
I was Rambo in the disco
I was shootin' to the beat
When they burned me in effigy
My vacation was complete.

Long Walk Home Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

If you see Liberty tell her I will
Buy her windows on the hill
Laud her flowers on the sill
Till they grow higher and higher.

If Liberty was a little girl
Watching all the flags unfurl
Standing at the big parade
How would she like us now?

We balance the power
From hour to hour
Giant guns rage
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home.

From Vietnam to old Beirut
If we are searching for the truth
Why do we feel
that double-edged blade
Cutting through our hand.

America, America
Where have we gone?
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home.

We balance the power
From hour to hour
Giant guns rage
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home.

Around The World Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

Boy and girl fall in love
Dreamin' under stars above
Meanwhile push comes to shove
Around the world.

Leaders fall, leaders rise
Terror wears a thin disguise
Not much room for compromise
Around the world.

Surfers from seven seas
Sharing with the submarines
Experts count war machines
Around the world.

People sweat in planted fields
Students study what is real
Someone builds a laser shield
Around the world.

Fashion change, style change
Fashion change, style change
Fashion change, style change.

Hey! What's that you got on?
You're sure looking good tonight!
Where'd you pick that up anyway?
Wow! You're looking beautiful!
Hey! You are somethin' else tonight,
so skin tight.
Yeah! Come on, lets go out! Come On!

Why do we have to hate
Why do we incinerate
Why don't we illuminate
Around the world.

Why don't we illuminate
Why don't we illuminate
Around the world.

Inca Queen Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

Once there was an Inca Queen
She gazed at her sundial
All around her workers raised
Golden idols to her smile
The waiting years weren't hard to see
Behind the tears of Mercury.

She spoke of silver from the sky
And many floating safety boats
To pick them up when they would fly
Far above their dreams and hopes
And they a mountain city raised
Where their queen above the clouds
Could watch out.

Inca Queen has,
Inca Queen has,
Inca Queen has come
Inca Queen has,
Inca Queen has,
Inca Queen has come.

Out in the jungle
the drums were heard:
Inca Queen has come
From the biggest elephant
to the smallest bird:
Inca Queen has come
She spoke of silver from the sky,
Inca Queen has come
To pick them up when they would fly,
Inca Queen has come.

Once there was an Inca Queen
She gazed at her sundial
All around her workers raised
Golden idols to her smile
And though the air was thin and cold
Soon the day would come
the queen had told.

Inca Queen has,
Inca Queen has,
Inca Queen has come.

Too Lonely Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

I got a key chain
Good luck charm
I drive a fast car
Got a strong arm.

Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

She's got the big lips
She's got the tight dress
Working for a big tip
She don't go for less.

She's too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

She wears a fur coat
She's got a gold ring
Comes from a good home
Lookin' for a new thing.

She's too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

Prisoners Of Rock 'n' Roll Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

People tell us
that we play too loud
But they don't know
what our music's about
We never listen
to the record company man
They try to change us
and ruin our band.

That's why we don't wanna be good
That's why we don't wanna be good
We're prisoners of rock and roll.

When were jammin'
in our old garage
The girls come over
and it sure gets hot
We don't wanna be watered down
Takin' orders
from record company clowns.

That's why we don't wanna be good
That's why we don't wanna be good
We're prisoners of rock and roll.

We're prisoners of rock and roll.

Cryin' Eyes Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?
Who's gonna wake you up
to that big surprise?
Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?

You say that all your life
you've been a free bird
There's been nobody over you
And you always have to
have the last word
Because one feels better than two.

Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?
Who's gonna wake you up
to that big surprise?
Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?

You say your life's
like riding on a fast train
It's easy to see far away
But right up close
it's just a blurry haze
Flyin' by from day to day.

Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?

When Your Lonely Heart Breaks Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

When your lonely heart breaks
Don't sit counting your mistakes
Don't be waiting
for love to come back
Don't be wastin' time
Don't be lost in crime
When your lonely heart breaks
When your lonely heart breaks.

What's your problem, she's gone
You're still movin', movin' on
You got memories, she got strong
There's a lot of things
That aren't gone
When your lonely,
lonely heart breaks
When your lonely heart breaks.

When your lonely heart breaks
Don't be cryin'
for good times you had
When your lonely heart breaks.

When your lonely heart breaks
Don't sit counting your mistakes
Don't be waiting
for love to come back
Don't be wastin' time
Don't be lost in crime
When your lonely,
lonely heart breaks
When your lonely,
lonely heart breaks
When your lonely heart breaks.

We Never Danced Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : Life

Between heaven and earth
There's a ballroom floor
Where the couples glide
In the evermore.

Floating through the clouds
Dancing in the rain
Eyes that see no lies
Hearts that feel no pain.

Hope it's not too late
We were more than friends
I can hardly wait
'Til we meet again.

If you don't really know
Where you want to go
It makes no difference
Which road you take.

Hope it's not too late
We were more than friends
I can hardly wait
'Til we meet again.

We never danced
We never danced
We never danced
the night away.

We never danced
We never danced
We never danced
the night away.

Coupe De Ville Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : This Note's For You

I got a coupe de ville
I got a bed in the house
Where you once lived.

I had a few cheap thrills
But they cost me a lot more
Than I could give.

I got a right
in this crazy world
To live my life
like anyone else
How long can I
carry this monkey around
All by myself.

If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else
If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else.

Well, I hit the wall
Woke up this mornin'
And I hit the wall.

Yeah, I hit the wall
Woke up this mornin'
And I hit the wall.

I got a right
in this crazy world
To live my life
like anyone else
How long can I
carry this monkey around
All by myself.

If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else
If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else.

Life In The City Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : This Note's For You

People sleepin' on the sidewalks
On a rainy day
Families livin' under freeways
It's the American way
Starvin' in the city
While the farm goes to seed
Murder in the home
And crime on the streets.

Don't that trouble you brother?
Don't that trouble you pal?
Don't that trouble you sister?
Well, that's life in the city.

All our old hangouts
Are boarded up and closed
Or being sold to someone
Nobody knows
I got a woman that loves me
And I love her so
She's all dressed up now
With nowhere to go.

Don't that trouble you brother?
Don't that trouble you pal?
Don't that trouble you sister?
Well, that's life in the city.

That's life in the city.

Listen to me people
Hear what I have to say
Ever since I was knee high
I rocked my blues away
But people
sleepin' on the sidewalks
And families in need
Murder in the home
And crime on the streets.

Don't that trouble you brother?
Don't that trouble you pal?
Don't that kill you sister?
Well, that's life in the city.

Twilight Lyrics

Artist : YOUNG, NEIL
Album : This Note's For You

The sun is setting
on the long road home
And I've been gone too long
My little girl's waitin'
by the front door
I count the minutes
till I hold you once more.

Making love to you
while time stands still
I may be dreamin',
but I always will
'Cause I'll be holding you
When the twilight falls.

Don't be lonely, don't be sad
'Cause you're the best thing
that I ever had
And true love is so hard to find
And we were lookin'
for such a long time.

Making love to you
while time stands still
I may be dreamin',
but I always will
'Cause I'll be holding you
When the twilight falls.

Don't be sad,
you're the best thing
that I ever had.

The sun is settin'
on the long road home.

Superhuman Touch Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

I'm on fire and nothing's gonna hold me back
Endless blue sky and a pocket full of tricks to try
You pick a colour and I'll sing it for you
I know you feel the same way
Say, say, say you feel the same way.

Fingertips alive - superhuman touch
Can't get enough of this electric love
Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand
Sparks flying out in every direction
There's more of this to come I think it must be heaven
Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand

I'm on fire, golden echoes upon my face
Tell those dreamers
They can dream up all they like in this place
You pick a colour and I'll sing it for you
I know you feel the same way
Say, say, say you feel the same way.

Fingertips alive - superhuman touch
Can't get enough of this electric love
Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand
Sparks flying out in every direction
There's more of this to come I think it must be heaven
Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand

Just one day like this will keep me going on
Tender kisses will keep me going on

Fingertips alive - superhuman touch
Can't get enough of this electric love
Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand
Sparks flying out in every direction
There's more of this to come I think it must be heaven
Burning the sun with just a wave of your hand

Seems like heaven's broken loose
It couldn't be more beautiful
I just want to burn the sun with you
A messed up garden to inspire
The greatest minds in all their power
I just want to burn the sun with you
In just a wave of your hand.

The Getaway Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

I never really know who you are
You could be a ghost for all I know
whenever you're home
Picking up pieces of my heart
Like leaves that have fallen on our garden path

Who's gonna fly your plane
When you need to make your getaway?

But I'm still holding on
Calling you back home, calling you back

I never really know who you are
You could be a ghost for all I know
whenever you're home
Used to be closer than my skin
Turned a blind eye to the odds and I bet everything

Who's gonna fly your plane
When you need to make your getaway?

But I'm still holding on
Calling you back home, calling you back
You hear my flesh and my bones
They're calling you back home, they're calling you back

This house lives in silence for most of the year
You're a million miles away but you couldn't be nearer
Please break my heart just so I can feel
At least I would have something that I could believe

But I'm still holding on
Calling you back home, calling you back
You hear my flesh and my bones
They're calling you back home, they're calling you back

OH OH OH

Black Swan Song Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

I waded through the darkest fields you'd imagine
Your pretty face sketched on the barrel of my gun
And I know you'll be the first to welcome me
When I climb into eternity
Oh, oh

The forest always kept us warm
But it doesn't feel like home anymore
And I know there's bigger mountains where you are
And a better climate for my heart
Oh, oh

I've been racing the clock
And I've run out of steam
I am ready for my final symphony
Oh my body is weak
But my soul is still strong
I am ready to rest in your arms

Though many battles I have won
I lost too many friends I could count on
And I know they'll be the first to welcome me
When I parachute into eternity
Oh, oh

I've been racing the clock
And I've run out of steam
I am ready for my final symphony
Oh my body is weak
But my soul is still strong
I am ready to rest in your arms

And the rain beat down on the rooftops
But there was no sound
There was no sound
And all my friends and family carried me
They carried me home
Carried me home

I've been racing the clock
And I've run out of steam
I am ready for my final symphony
Oh my body is weak
But my soul is still strong
I am ready to rest in your arms
I've been racing the clock
And I've run out of steam
I am ready for my final symphony
Oh my body is weak
But my soul is still strong
I am ready to rest in your arms
Oh, oh

Don't Hold Your Breath Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

Don't hold your breath cause we're running in circles
Silence runs along phone lines
I feel like I am swimming through pavements
And then the dark throws me a lifeline

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

Don't hold your breath
cause we've already been here
There are trees to remember you by
These trees are cold but they're anticipating
The sun is gonna give the kiss of life

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

I'm blowing breath on the windowpane
Sketching your name with my finger
I'm blowing breath on the windowpane
Sketching your face with my finger

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

I'll be the sky that lights up with fireworks
Whenever November comes
And you could be the greatest thing that has happened to me
Though I don't know you now

Mother do you still love this child?
Baby on the run
Father would you forgive me now?
When you see what I have become

Singing songs unto my pain
Songs I will remember
To life me up again

Love come rescue

Love come rescue

Light The Way Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

I was lost oh no
And my heart beat with the stereo
As the sun rose in your eyes
You shot a look that killed me

Can you work it out for yourself?
I couldn't work it out for myself

Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
I'll be there to take your hurt
Even if I come off worse
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
I'll be there to take your hurt
Even if I come off worse

I was lost for words
Lost inside your dream world

Can you work it out for yourself?
I couldn't work it out for myself oh no

Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
I'll be there to take your hurt
Even if I come off worse
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
I'll be there to take your hurt
Even if I come off worse

Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
I'll be there to take your hurt
Even if I come off worse
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
Keep it coming and I'll light the way home
I'll be there to take your hurt
Even if I come off worse

The Unknown Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

Let your world be wide open
And your fears be blown apart
May your voice be louder than bombs
Somewhere in silence find one to trust

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

Let your senses be ignited
By streams of neon singing in the dark
Connected to the planet
A million neighbours
A sea of stars

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

Leaders, lovers come and go
Outside forces you can't control
Oh I see you smiling at the unknown
Oh I see you smiling at the unknown

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

The Awkward Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

My heart is a stone
You don't want to go there
But I don't mind if you try

If you should go
I'll be a soldier
But I can't fight without you

And outside love moves on
To an imaginary world
Where we both belong
In an imaginary world

My heart is a stone
You don't want to go there
But I don't mind if you try

We studied the cold
Yeah we made friends with it
And it brought us back
Our bodies intact

And no one knows how I love you
No one comes even close
And sunlight runs through my veins for you

And outside love moves on
To an imaginary world
Where we both belong
In an imaginary world

And no one knows how I love you
No one comes even close
And sunlight runs through my veins for you

And no one knows how I love you
No one comes even close
And sunlight runs through my veins for you

I put my hands up
'Cause this is so obvious
That look in your eye
Of an awkward goodbye

Magical Mistakes Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

You'll always be my pretty dancer
Spinning trails of fairy dust
Making moves like nobody else
On your own
If anybody needs a reason it's right here

Giving me shockwaves
Those magical mistakes
Sending shockwaves through my atmosphere
If anybody needs a reason it's right here

If those eyelids were the shutter to my camera
Maybe I would see the world in different light
You wear that smile like nobody else
On your own
If anybody needs a reason it's right here

Giving me shockwaves
Those magical mistakes
Sending shockwaves through my atmosphere
If anybody needs a reason it's right here

Stay gold
Keep your balance on the tightrope
Chasing after
My pretty dancer

Giving me shockwaves
Those magical mistakes
Sending shockwaves through my atmosphere
If anybody needs a reason it's right here

Giving me shockwaves
Those magical mistakes
Sending shockwaves through my atmosphere
If anybody needs a reason it's right here

Rubik's Cube Lyrics

Artist : ATHLETE
Album : Black Swan

The world is too heavy
Too big for my shoulders
Come take this weight off me now

1000's of answers
To one simple question
Come take this weight off me now

Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
Twisting and turning the colours in rows
I'm so intent to find out what it is
This is my Rubik's cube
I know I will figure it out

Lost in the playground
Late night nostalgia
Open the sky for me now

Friends round the fire
Outside in December
Open the sky for me now

Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
Twisting and turning the colours in rows
I'm so intent to find out what it is
This is my Rubik's cube
I know I will figure it out

Credits roll over the edge of horizons
That I haven't discovered yet

Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
Twisting and turning the colours in rows
I'm so intent to find out what it is
This is my Rubik's cube
I know I will figure it out

Oh I'm like a kid who just won't let it go
Twisting and turning the colours in rows
I'm so intent to find out what it is
This is my Rubik's cube
I know I will figure it out

Straight Through My Heart Lyrics

Artist : BACKSTREET BOYS
Album : This Is Us

[Brian]
Ooh Oh Oh
In the heart
Of the night
When it's dark
In the lights
I heard the loudest noise
A gunshot on the floor
Oh-oh Oh-oh

[Nick]
I looked down
And my shirt's turning red
I'm spinning around
Felt her lips on my neck
And her voice
In my ear
Like I missed you
Want you tonight

[Chorus - All]
Straight through my heart
A single bullet got me
I can't stop the bleeding
Oh-oh
Straight through my heart
She aimed and she shot me
I just can't believe it
Oh-oh
No I can't resist
And I can't be hit
I just can't escape this love
Straight through my heart
Soldier down (my heart)
Soldier down (my heart)

[Howie]
Thought I moved
More than on
Thought I could
Fool her charm
I really wanna go
But I can't leave her alone
Oh-oh Oh-oh

[AJ]
Hear the sound
Of a love so loud
I just can't
I just can't
Ignore this feeling
Said she misses me
And she wants me
Wants me tonight

[Chorus - All]

[Nick]
In the heart
Of the night
When it's dark
In the lights
I heard the loudest voice
A gunshot on the floor

Bigger Lyrics

Artist : BACKSTREET BOYS
Album : This Is Us

First off I cant keep a promise
I'm no one to count on at all
Add on that I'm a coward
To scared to return your calls

[Chorus]
But you don't care
You keep sticking around
While I'm acting a clown
You're bigger
Lalala
Cuz you're still here
Your feet stuck to the ground
Despite how silly it sounds
You're bigger
Than me
Lalala

Its known that I'm a liar
Often I'm blacker than white
Add on my uncanny ego
No ones less humbled than I

[Chorus]
But you don't care
You keep sticking around
While I'm acting a clown
You're bigger
Lalala
Cuz you're still here
Your feet stuck to the ground
Despite how silly it sounds
You're bigger
Than me
Lalala

All the messed up things I do
Yeah I swear I'll make'em up to you
Before you're going heaven knows
Just let me make it better
I'll try to measure up
I'll try to measure up to you

I'll make it up to you

[Chorus]
But you don't care
You keep sticking around
While I'm acting a clown
You're bigger
Lalala
Cuz you're still here
Your feet stuck to the ground
Despite how silly it sounds
You're bigger
Than me
Lalala

Bye Bye Love Lyrics

Artist : BACKSTREET BOYS
Album : This Is Us

Yeah, yeah, oh,
Yeah, yeah,

You should be right here laying next to me
But baby you chose to love the hard way
You could be right here getting the best of me
But baby you decided he was your man

And now that you're finding out
He's playing little games, you calling me again
You say you want me around
But I'm not sure now if I wanna be down
Soooo..

I think I wanna stay single
Maybe we're better apart
See I don't want a girl
That, only wanna come back
Cause, some other man broke her heart

So Bye Bye Love
Bye Love
So Bye Bye Love (Bye Love)
Bye Love
Yeah...

Crazy how the tables turn
It wasn't long ago that you turned your back, no.
Saying there's no way that we can work (We can work)
And you were quick to move on to the next day
Yeah.

And now that you're finding out
He's playing little games, you calling me again
You say you want me around
But I'm not sure now if I wanna be down
Soooo..

I think I wanna stay single
Maybe we're better apart
See I don't want a girl
That, only wanna come back
Cause, some other man broke her heart

So Bye Bye Love (Bye Love)
Bye Love
So Bye Bye Love (Bye Bye, Bye Bye Love)
Bye Love (Bye Bye, Bye Bye Love.)
Yeah.

Can't take you back when I know (When I know)
I'm not the one you really wanted before
Sorry, that I let you go (Let you go)
This time I think its best to do it alone!

Whoooo, whoo, whoooo, yeahhhh (say goodbye to me love.)
Whoo, whooo, let it go, let it go.

Bye Bye, Bye Bye Love! (Love.)

I think I wanna stay single (I think I wanna stay.)
Maybe we're better apart (Maybe we're better apart)
See I don't want a girl
That, only wanna come back
Cause, some other man broke her heart

So Bye Bye Love (Singing Bye Bye Love)
Bye Love (Singing Bye Bye Love)
So Bye Bye Love (Bye, Bye, Bye, Bye, girl.)
Bye Love (Oh, Bye Bye love)

I think I wanna stay single (I think I wanna stay.)
Maybe we're better apart (Maybe we're better apart)
See I don't want a girl
That, only wanna come back
Cause, some other man broke her heart
So Bye Bye Love (Singing Bye Bye Love)
Bye Love (Bye Bye, bye, bye, Love)
So Bye Bye Love (Singing Bye bye love)
Bye Love (Bye bye, bye, bye, love)

I'm saying goodbye to you (I'm saying goodbye to you..)
I'm saying goodbye to you... (Oh, I'm saying goodbye to you..)
I'm saying goodbye to you (Say Goodbye..)
I'm saying goodbye to you (Say Goodbye...)
(Bye, bye, love) I'm saying goodbye to you (Say Goodbye...)
(Bye, bye, love) I'm saying goodbye to you (Say Goodbye...)

If I Knew Then Lyrics

Artist : BACKSTREET BOYS
Album : This Is Us

Life should be like a game of cards
You make a mistake
Then fold the deck and start over
It should be just like drivin in your car
Get lost and your navigation system
Gets you closer

But there ain't no handbook
You're on your own
Got no instructions
When it comes to love
Cuz once you do something
Can't be undone
Wish I could take back
Letting you go

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this mess
Silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
Yeah I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now

Wish I get remote controls
Then I just rewind into
The time it was better
It should have a restart button
So, I could travel right back
To the day that I met her

But there ain't no handbook
You're on your own
Got no instructions
When it comes to love
Cuz once you do something
Can't be undone
Wish I could take back
Letting you go

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this mess
Silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
Yeah I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now

Cuz there ain't no handbook
You're on your own
Got no instructions
When it comes to love
See once you do something
Can't be undone
Wish I could take back
Letting you go

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this mess
Silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
Yeah I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew

If I knew then
What I know now
I wouldn't have said
I don't need you around
Alone in this mess
Silence is so loud
So I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
What I know now (What I know now)
Yeah I would treat you the best
Baby if I knew then
What I know now

This Is Us Lyrics

Artist : BACKSTREET BOYS
Album : This Is Us

Got a million reasons to run and hide
I don't blame you for being scared (for being scared, no)
Bout a novel long, all the pain that he's caused you
Baby I'm fully aware (I'm fully aware)
I would change the stories ending to me and you
Don't know the meaning of pretending what to do

[CHORUS]
I could be the one
Give you all my love
Forget what he has done to you
I'm here now
Open up to me
Love will set you free
If ever you believe it
Please believe in me

This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is love
This is love
I'm here now
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is love
This is love
I'm here now

I know everything isn't meant to last
Box up all those photographs
Your moving on (yeah)
I could flip back over that hour glass
And refill the better half (the better half)

And it's a miracle how broken hearts can mend
Wont you dry up all those tear drops and start again

[CHORUS]
I could be the one
Give you all my love
Forget what he has done to you
I'm here now
Open up to me
Love will set you free
If ever you believe it
Please believe in me

This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is love
This is love
I'm here now
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is love
This is love
I'm here now

If I could show you there's no risk of being left alone
Would you let your past go
I'll take it slow
Cause there's no need to rush when I know
I could be the one
Give you all my love
Forget what he has done to you
I'm here now
Open up to me
Love will set you free
If ever you believe it
Please believe in me

This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is love
This is love
I'm here now
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is love
This is love
I'm here now
