My Hero Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Margaret:] There's something in his eyes that I like
And he's got this lazy little smile he stole from a movie he saw
But I like him
He's a momma's boy for sure
It's their lips that give them away you know
So soft, so pink
My hero. My little hero

I believe that in the sky there shines a star for me
Clean and bright and shining like the sun shines

When it seemed that life was hard
Impossible to find your way
I thought about my star and kept on

Listen to your heart
It will tell you everything
Follow it wherever it would go

[Played, not sung] I believe that in the sky there shines a star
My special star
But I like this boy and I hope that he likes me

I like this boy and I hope that he likes me

I Gotta Be Your Man Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

Let me be your lover boy
Just wanna hold your hand
Something we might both enjoy
Can you understand

Now I been waitin' for a long time
For you to tell me that you'd be mine
And honey I'm doin' the best I can
But I got to be your man
I got to be your man
I got to

That great big moon that shines
Down in the sky above
Remindin' me of love baby
Whoa, I'm really gonna give it to you
And in our solitude
I hold you in my arms
Captivated by your charms
Whoa
Whoa, now you're gonna get it

When the mornin' sun comes up
I'll be there by your side
Fetch your coffee in your favorite cup
Do anything to keep you satisfied

Now people say this, people say that
People say they know where it's at
But the proof of the pudding is in the pan
And I gotta be your man
I gotta be your man
I gotta be it

There's somethin' you should know
Tell you where I stand
Never gonna let you go
Yours to worship or command

I been waitin' for a long time
For you to tell me that you'd be mine
Honey I'm doin' the best I can
But I gotta be your man
I gotta be your man
I gotta be your man

Feels Like Home Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

Something in your eyes
Makes me want to lose myself
Makes me want to lose myself
In your arms

There's something in your voice
Makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts
The rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how low I've felt for so long
If you knew how I wanted someone
To come along
And change my life the way you've done

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

A window breaks
Down a long dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright 'cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see
Through the dark there's a light

If you knew how much this moment
Means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
If you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought I'd love anyone so much

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back
Where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

Bleeding All Over The Place Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Martha:] Sounds like a real sad song.
[Devil:] Why don't you love me like you used to do?
Are you trying to break my heart?
[M:] Not me, baby
[D:] I know there's somethin' goin' on with you
[M:] Un uh
[D:] Whatever it is, it's tearin' me apart
I walk along the river every night
Tryin' to figure out why we fuss and fight
Is love once again to slip right through my hand?
[M:] I hope not
[D:] Baby, Have you been messin' with another man?
[M:] Ohhh
[D:] Ohhhh

I'm bleedin' all over the place
Bleedin' all over the place
I don't mean to be rude
But I'm in a pretty bad mood
Just take a look at my face
[M:] Yep, you look awful

[D:] I'm bleedin' all over the place
Bleedin' all over
Someone call a doctor
We got a serious case
Of bleedin' all over the place

Why don't you love me like you used to do
[M:] He's startin' to repeat himself, now
[D:] Tell me, what did I do wrong?
Seems like you're through with me
I wasn't through with you
My love for you is still very strong
[M:] Oh, yeah?

[D:] I wander aimlessly, not knowing what to do
I've become quite shameless in my love for you
I'm tryin real hard to understand
Have you been sleeping with another man baby, baby?

I'm bleedin' all over the place
Bleedin' all over
Get me a witness
To record my disgrace
How I've been dishonored
Deceived and debased
Then someone get me a band-aid
Before I fall on my fuckin' face
'Cause I'm bleedin' all over the place

Sandman's Coming Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Margaret:] Close your eyes now little girl
They don't want to hear you cryin'
You never had a chance,
you never had a chance

It's a great big dirty world
If they say it ain't they're lyin'
Sandman's comin' soon
You know he's comin' soon

Close your eyes and dream
A little dream for you and me
Dream yourself a place where you can go
Baby you never know

Close your eyes now little girl
Go to sleep my little baby
Sandman's comin' soon
You know he's comin' soon

Sandman's comin' soon
You know he's comin' soon

Happy Ending Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Devil:] I feel the hot wind blowin'
From the West to the East
I feel the hot wind blowin'
Can't get no relief
I feel the hot wind blowin'
Ev'ry day and ev'ry night
I feel my confidence growin'
And I know I'm gonna be alright

I see the volcanoes
'Rupting and erupting
Red walls of fire

I got corruption
Seduction
Destruction
Reproduction
I got Las Vegas in my mind
Seem like it's stuck up in there
Like it's been up there for all times
You can take your desert
Goddamn it, give me mine
'Cause I got Las Vegas in my mind

Through these portals
Pass the rich and the famous
Through these portals
Pass the very best at what they do
Man, they're the greatest
It's the land of giant women
But the little man is king
Here in Las Vegas
Man, they got ev'rything
Run with it

They got English girls
With legs so long
You gotta use a stepladder
To lick their love thing
It's a family place too now
So bring the kids along
They're gonna have a real good time here

They got wild women from Borneo
Playin' the piano
In your bungalow
They got monkey women from the Amazon
Or something really funky
From the lands beyond
They're here in Las Vegas
They're here in Las Vegas
Las Vegas
Man, I'm speaking in tongues!

The sky is blue

It Was Beautiful (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Lord:] Deep within my heart
Still there glows an ember
One golden dream that only I remember
Long ago

Blue, the deepest blue
How it shown within me
Greens and golds delight the darkness in me
Long ago I dream

Long ago I dream
But once I've dreamed
And it was beautiful
It was beautiful, beautiful

Deep within my heart
I dream

Damn Fine Day (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[The Irish:] Oh Easter times are time for eggs
And the time for eggs is Easter time

It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)
It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)

It's a damn fine day for the USA
And a damn fine day for the Irish

In spring the golden daffodils
Spread so sweetly o'er the hills

It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)
It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)

It's a damn fine day, it's a damn fine day
It's a damn fine, damn fine day

Before the piper's tune is played
A man may woo a pretty maid

It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)
It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)

It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)
It's a damn fine day
(It's a damn fine day)

It's a damn fine day, it's a damn fine day for the USA
And a damn fine day for the Irish

It's a damn fine day for the USA
And a damn fine day for the Irish

March Of The Protestants (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Marchers (inspiring fear in the crowd):]
Oh, here we come
There's a bold new spirit in the land
Not from Spain, not from Rome
But our own thing

All that we ask
Is the right to worship as we please
No more priests with their stuck-up ways
No nuns

Oh, we are men
And a man of god should marry if he wants to marry

Oh, we're men, men, men, men

But our own thing

Oh, here we go
Will we find the answer, who can say
Won't you all wish us well on our way

[The Doppler effect kicks in as the marchers march away.]

Love Time (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Devil:] There is a boulevard
Where lonely people go
When all their dreams have withered and died
This is the place they go

They bring their broken hearts
Hearts that will never mend
They come here for they know
There's nowhere else to go
This really is the end

[Tap dancers make an appearance.]

Along the boulevard
Think of the tears they've shed
They've nothing left to lose
They'll always have the blues
They might as well be dead

[Girl standing on a bridge, looking to jump. She jumps.
Then she enters a little love-land, a little damp. She sees some other girls are there already.]


[Girl:] I never felt this way before
I don't know what to do
You girls look like you know the score
That's why I'm asking you
When he whispers sweet words in my ear
Tell me what I long to hear
Will he try to steal a kiss or two?

[Existing Girls:] Oh he'll do more than that I'm telling you
First he'll kiss your dainty finger tips
And then he'll kiss your ruby lips
Then he'll plant one right on your wazoo
You won't know if the sky is green or blue
You won't know if the sky is green or blue

[Devil (entering with a top hat):] It's love time, whoa baby, it's love time
You drive me crazy
I'd walk a mile just for a smile from you
Dance with me

It's love time let me put my arms around you
Honey I'm so glad I found you

[The Devil exposes himself to the audience.]
[Spoken]
Just take a look at this
Oh, I 'm so excited

Lets spoon a little, croon a little
Moon a little, Tune a little
Pretty soon, in a little while
I'll be all over you

It's love time

Here we are, we're all alone
Lock the door, unplug the phone
Get into bed, we'll turn out the lights
And say goodnight, goodnight
Say goodnight

It's love time
Little honey, it's love time
The days are sunny
What could I do, I'm so in love with you
Say goodnight
Goodnight

[Growling and commotion]
[Girl:] What's the matter?
[D:] Just tired I guess

Love time

When Love Is In The Air (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Night March 17th, Sunday, in South Bend]
[Cupid shoots Faust and the Peasants notice]

[Chorus of South Bend peasants:] When love is in the air
It may strike swiftly
Like a bolt out of the blue
One never knows whom it might fall on
Maybe me, maybe you
Maybe me, maybe you ...

[Faust:] I love you
Those words sound strange in my ear
I've never said them before to anyone
I love you
Now I know I'll always love you
That must sound crazy to you
But girl, I love you
If you knew how lonely I have been
How cold and how lonely my life has been
I need the warm touch
Of someone who loves me like I love you
I love you and I don't know your name

[Margaret (speaking):] It's Margaret.

[Faust:] Margaret, do you love me?

[Margaret:] No

[Faust:] What was that?

[Margaret:] No

[Faust:] What was that you just said?

[Margaret:] No, I don't love you
I don't know you
I don't love you

[Faust:] You little bitch
You whore
The first person I ever love and they don't love me?
Unbelievable!

Forgive me, I didn't know what I was saying

[South Bend Chorus:] Forgive him

[Chorus from above:] Forgive him

[Margaret:] I forgive you

[South Bend Chorus:] When love is in the air
It may strike swiftly
Like a bolt out of the blue
One never knows whom it might fall on
Maybe me, maybe me maybe you, maybe you
Maybe you

Gainesville, Florida (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Margaret:] I was born in Gainesville, Florida
And my father was a tailor
And my mother ran a cafe near the university

I've a brother died aborning
And another who's a sailor
I've a sister who is older, and living on her own
I have tried all my life to be kind to others
Even when others were unkind to me
I've been told all my life when I found someone
He would look at me and I'd know

Are you really mine?
Are you really mine?
Does your heart glow
When you see me walkin' down the street, boy?
Do your eyes shine
When you know that we're about to meet?
I don't think they do

I was born in Gainesville, Florida
And my father was a tailor
And my mother ran a cafe near the university
And she didn't raise a fool when she raised me

Hard Currency (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Martha (at the Costa Rica airport, in posession of Margaret's jewels):]

[Industrialists, the military, peasants are waiting at the airport]
[CHORUS:]
She's coming, she's coming, she's coming
With a great silver bird she's coming
She's coming, she's coming, she's coming
With a great silver bird she's coming

Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha
Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha

[Martha:] When I was poor I hated it
Always the wolf at the door
Now that I'm rich
I'm so happy
I'll never be poor anymore
I'll never be poor anymore

[Chorus:] Heavy industry
A higher standard of living

[Martha:] When I was a kid grandma told me
Girl, now you listen to me
Without any money you're nothing
Without money you'll never be free

[Chorus:] Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha

You might be pretty, forget it, forget it
You might be smart but so what
If you don't have plenty of money
It's plenty of nothing you've got

Heavy industry
A higher standard of living
Hard currency

[An unwritten dance]

[Martha:] I had a friend
I betrayed that friend
Am I an animal or what?
Does not a human heart beat within my breast
Maybe not!

[Chorus:] Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha, Martha

[Martha (speaking to the audience):] Goodbye, goodbye everyone! We won't see each other ever again. But in my heart, I'll always be an
American. [Some angry grumbling] A north american. Goodbye and give my regards to broadway!

Basin Street Blues (Demo) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Faust

[Devil:] Won't you come along with me,
To the Mississippi,
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams,
Steam down the river to New Orleans.
The band's there to greet us,
Old friends there to meet us.
Where the rich and the poor folks meet,
Let me take you down to Basin Street.

Basin Street,
That's the street,
Where the elite
Always meet,
In New Orleans,
The Land of Dreams,
You'll never know how nice it seems or
Just how much it really means,
I'm glad to be,
Yes siree,
Where the welcome's free.
They're so good to me,
That's where I can lose,
My Basin Street Blues.

My Country Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

Let's go back to yesterday
When a phone call cost a dime
In New Orleans, just a nickel
Turn back the hands of time
Turn back the hands of time

Picture a room
With a window
A sofa and some chairs
A television turned on for the night
Picture a woman, two children seated
A man lying there
Their faces softly glowing in the light

This is my country
These are my people
This is the world I understand
This is my country
These are my people
And I know 'em like the back of my own hand

If we had something to say
We'd bounce it off the screen
We were watching and we couldn't look away
We all know what we look like
You know what I mean
We wouldn't have had it any other way

We got comedy, tragedy
Everything from A to B
Watching other people living
Seeing other people play
Having other people's voices fill our minds
Thank you Jesus

Feelings might go unexpressed
I think that's probably for the best
Dig too deep who knows what you will find

This is my country
Those were my people
Theirs was a world I understand

Picture a room, no window
A door that leads outside
A man lying on a carpet on the floor
Picture his three grown boys behind him
Bouncing words off a screen
Of a television big as all outdoors

Now your children are your children
Even when they're grown
When they speak to you
You got to listen to what they have to say
But they all live alone now
They have TVs of their own
But they keep on coming over anyway
And much as I love them
I'm always kind of glad when they go away

This is my country
These are my people
This is the world I understand
This is my country
These are my people
And I know 'em like the back of my own hand
I know 'em like the back of my own hand

Shame Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

Pretty little baby
How come you never come around?
Pretty little baby
How come you never come around?
I sent you all them pretty flowers
Now you're nowhere to be found

I call you up at midnight sometimes I must admit
And when I find you're not at home
My head heats up like a furnace
My heart grows colder than a stone
So what's the good of all this money I got
If every night I'm left here all alone?
It's a gun that I need

Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame
I ain't ashamed of nothing
Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame
I don't know what you're talking about

All right let's talk a little business
You know what I'm saying
A man of my experience of life
Don't expect a beautiful young woman like yourself
To come on over here every day
And have some old dude banging on her like a gypsy on a tambourine
That's not what we're talking about
That's not what we're talking about
That's not what we're talking about

But I will say this
I've been all over the world
I've seen some wonderful things
I haven't been well lately
I have no one to share my plans, my dreams
My hopes and my schemes, my:

Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame
You could be right
I've sunk pretty low this time
Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame
These are truly desperate times

Saw your little sandals baby
Out behind the wishing well
Down here in the cool depths of the Quarter
Where the rich folk dwell
And I pictured you in diamonds, satins and pearls
Come on back to Daddy
Daddy miss his little baby girl

Now, my father, he was an angry man
You cross him he made you pay
I myself,am no longer an angry man
Don't make me beg you
Don't make me beg

Do you know what if feels like
To wake up in the morning
Have every joint in your body aching, God damn it?
Do you know what it feels like
To have to get up in the middle of the night and sit down to take a piss?
You do know?
So you say
I have my doubts, Missy
Do you know what it feels like
To have to beg a little bum like you for love?
God damn it you little bitch, I'd kill you if I didn't love you so much
Shame Shame Shame Shame Shame
Shut up

Forgive me
My unfocused words
I was flying blind
I lost my mind (Shame Shame Shame)
If you could find it in your heart, if you got one
To forgive me
I'd be ever so grateful (Shame Shame Shame)
Will you stop that please (Shame Shame Shame)
Will you stop that please I'm trying to talk to someone (Shame)
Thank you
You know, I have a Lexus now
I don't get out much
You know what I'm saying
Come on home

I'm Dead (But I Don't Know It) Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

I have nothing left to say
But I'm gonna say it anyway
Thirty years upon a stage
And I hear the people say
Why won't he go away?

I pass the houses of the dead
They're calling me to join their group
But I stagger on instead
Dear God, sweet God
Protect me from the truth, hey

I'm dead but I don't know it
He's dead, he's dead
I'm dead but I don't know
He's dead, he's dead
I'm dead but I don't know it
He's dead, he's dead
Please don't tell me so
Let me, let me, let me go

I have a family to support
But surely, that is no excuse
I've nothing further to report
Time you spend with me
Is time you lose

I always thought that I would know
When it was time to quit
That when I lost a step or two or three or four or five
I'd notice it
Now that I've arrived here safely
I find my talent has gone
Why do I go on and on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on and on

He's dead, he's dead, he's dead
I don't know it
He's dead, he's dead, he's dead
I didn't know
He's dead, he's dead, he's dead
I didn't know it
Who would be so cruel to tell me so?
You're dead!

When will I end this bitter game?
When will I end this cruel charade?
Everything I write all sounds the same
Each record that I'm making
Is like a record that I've made
Just not as good

I'm dead but I don't know it
He's dead, he's dead
I'm dead but I don''t know
He's dead, he's dead
I'm dead but I don't know it
He's dead, he's dead
Please don't tell me so
Please don't tell me so
You're dead!

Every Time It Rains Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

Every time it rains
I sit at home and wonder why
Ever since you said goodbye
I felt so all alone
Every time it rains
And summer showers soak the ground
I watch the rain come pouring down
And I call out your name

Every time it rains
I hang my head and want to die
And I don't seem to care that
I'm just not making it on my own
Every time it rains

Sometimes late at night
I close my eyes
And pretend that you're here with me
But every time it rains
I realize just how lonely my life is going to be

Every time it rains
Every time I hear the raindrops fall
I may say that I don't mind it at all
But I do

Every time it rains
Every time I try to tell myself
That in time I'll find somebody else
But it won't be you
Every time it rains
Every time it rains

Great Nations Of Europe Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

The Great Nations of Europe
Had gathered on the shore
They'd conquered what was behind them
And now they wanted more
So they looked to the mighty ocean
And took to the western sea
The great nations of Europe in the sixteenth century

Hide your wives and daughters
Hide the groceries too
Great nations of Europe coming through

The Grand Canary Islands
First land to which they came
They slaughtered all the canaries
Which gave the land its name
There were natives there called Guanches
Guanches by the score
Bullets, disease, the Portugese, and they weren't there anymore
Now they're gone, they're gone, they're really gone
You've never seen anyone so gone
They're a picture in a museum
Some lines written in a book
But you won't find a live one no matter where you look

Hide your wives and daughters
Hide the groceries too
Great nations of Europe coming through

Columbus sailed for India
Found Salvador instead
He shook hands with some Indians and soon they all were dead
They got TB and typhoid and athlete's foot
Diptheria and the flu
Excuse me - Great nations coming through

Balboa found the pacific
And on the trail one day
He met some friendly Indians
Whom he was told were gay
So he had them torn apart by dogs on religious grounds they say
The great nations of Europe were quite holy in their way

Now they're gone, they're gone, they're really gone
You've never seen anyone so gone
Some bones hidden in a canyon
Some paintings in a cave
There's no use trying to save them
There's nothing left to save

Hide your wives and daughters
Hide your sons as well
With the great nations of Europe you never can tell

From where you and I are standing
At the end of a century
Europes have sprung up everyone as even I can see
But there on the horizon as a possiblity
Some bug from out of Africa might come for you and me
Destroying everything in its path
From sea to shining sea
Like the great nations of Europe
In the sixteenth century

The One You Love Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

You've got to learn to get to know the one you love
To anticipate her every move
You got to know exactly what she's thinking of
She may be hungry
She won't say
You better get a burger or something in her right away
If you don't you're gonna pay
At the hand of the one you love
The one you love
The one you love

Young man
You're running free
You're running wild
You fall in love
You become nothing but a little baby child
She can hurt you
With the sound of her voice
You can leave her
But you got no choice
You can't leave her man
You're just a prisoner of the one you love
The one you love
The one you love

True love never runs smooth you know
Sometimes there'll be sunny days
Sometimes there'll be sleet and snow
When true love calls you
Man you gotta go
And when you gotta go, you gotta go
You got to know the one you love
You got to know the one you love
The one you love
The one you love
The one you love
The one you love

Once a great man's heart was captured by a lovely chest
He told himself it was her mind he loved
But he was blind like all the rest
Twenty hard years went by
Till another chest will catch his eye
He just hung his head and cried
And said, "Sorry dear you're too late
I've already ruined my life"
You've got to know the one you love
You've got to know the one you love

She may be gentle
She may be kind
She may not know exactly what's on her mind
But you better know
Or you're gonna find
You lose the one you love
The one you love
The one you love

The World Isn't Fair Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

When Karl Marx was a boy
He took a hard look around
He saw people were starving all over the place
While others were painting the town (buh, buh, buh)
The public spirited boy
Became a public spirited man
So he worked very hard and he read everything
Until he came up with a plan

There'll be no exploitation
Of the worker or his kin
No discrimination 'cause the color of your skin
No more private property
It would not be allowed
No one could rise too high
No one could sink too low
Or go under completely like some we all know

If Marx were living today
He'd be rolling around in his grave
And if I had him here in my mansion on the hill
I'd tell him a story t'would give his old heart a chill
It's something that happened to me

I'd say, Karl I recently stumbled
Into a new family
With two little children in school
Where all little children should be
I went to the orientation
All the young mommies were there
Karl, you never have seen such a glorious sight
As these beautiful women arrayed for the night
Just like countesses, empresses, movie stars and queens
And they'd come there with men much like me
Froggish men, unpleasant to see
Were you to kiss one, Karl
Nary a prince would there be

Oh Karl the world isn't fair
It isn't and never will be
They tried out your plan
It brought misery instead
If you'd seen how they worked it
You'd be glad you were dead
Just like I'm glad I'm living in the land of the free
Where the rich just get richer
And the poor you don't ever have to see
It would depress us, Karl
Because we care
That the world still isn't fair

Big Hat, No Cattle Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

Since I was a child
I've tried to be what I am not
I've lied and I've enjoyed it all my life
I lied to my dear mother
To my sisters and my brother
And now I'm lying to my children and my wife

Big Hat, no cattle
Big head, no brain
Big snake, no rattle
I forever remain
Big hat, no cattle
I knew from the start
Big boat, no paddle
Big belly, no heart

Can't remember why I do it
Oh, maybe I can
An honest man these days is hard to find
I only know we're living in an unforgiving land
And a little lie can buy some real big peace of mind
Oftimes I have wondered what might I have become
Had I but buckled down and really tried
But when it came down to the wire
I called my family to my side
Stood up straight, threw my head back, and I lied, lied, lied

Big hat, no cattle
Big shoes, well you know
Big horse, no saddle
He goes wherever I go
Big hat, no cattle
Right from the start
Big guns, no battle
Big belly, no heart

When it came down to the wire
I called my little family to my side
Stood up straight, threw my head back, and I lied, lied, lied
Lied, lied, lied

Big hat, no cattle
Big head, no brain
Big snake, no rattle
I forever remain
Big hat, no cattle
I knew from the start
Big boat, no paddle
Big belly, no heart
Big boat, no paddle
Big belly, no heart

Better Off Dead Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

When you fall in love with someone
Who doesn't love you
Someone who treats you so badly
It ramifies your head
Someone who doesn't want you
But won't let you go
Someone who thinks you're crazy
And tells you so
Over and over
If this happens to you
You'd be better off dead

You might be surprised to learn how often it can happen
In a love affair
(And boy does it hurt)
You fall in love with someone for whom you really care
And they treat you just like dirt
They make you feel all fat and fumbly
Make you feel kind of dirty and flirty
Hey I'm talking to you
Didn't you hear what I said?

Better off dead
Than living with someone
Whose every word's like a knife that cuts through you
Better off dead
Than living with someone
Who just doesn't give a shit what happens to you
You know that it's wrong
But you go on and on and on
Better off dead
Better off dead
Better off dead

When you fall in love with someone
Who doesn't love you
You better run for daylight
Just as fast as you can (Little man)
Forget your foolish dreams and schemes that things will work out in the end
Put some real mileage between yourself and the object of your love my friend
Or become what you see
Yes, a loser like me
Someone who'd be
Better off dead
Better off dead
Better off

I Miss You Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

Still in my heart
After all these years
Separated by time
And now by distance
I couldn't allow myself to feel
The loss that I feel right now
As I put this song down

You're far away
And happy I know
And it's a little bit late
Twenty years or so
And it's a little bit cold
For all those concerned
But I'd sell my soul and your souls for a song
So I'll pour my heart out

I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
I'm sorry but I do
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
I'm sorry but it's true

I want to thank you for the good years
And apologize for the rough ones
You must be laughing yourself sick
Up there in Idaho
But I wanted to write you one
Before I quit
And this one's it

I miss you
I miss you
And I wanted you to know
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
And I still love you so

Going Home Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

Going home
Going home
Oh the dark night is over now
I'm going home

To the land I love
To the land I love
And the one girl who waits for me
I'm going home

I will cross the sea
I will cross the sea
I am going home forever
I'm going home

Going home
Going home
Going home

I Want Everyone To Like Me Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Bad Love

I want everyone to like me
I want everyone to like me real bad
I want everyone to approve of me
'Cause when they disapprove of me it makes me feel so sad

I want to earn the respect of my peers
If it takes a hundred years
I'd like to find out where they are, by the way,
For I would run to embrace them
I'm only kidding
I'm really very modest once you get to know me

A house, a little land
Maybe someone to lend a helping hand
A little money set aside
Ah, then I would be satisfied

I want someone to tell me one time
"Honey, you don't look well.
Why don't you lie down for a couple of years
I'll look after things." Yeah.
A grown up woman would be nice
I'd like to flip her over once or twice
Find out what makes her tick

Some friends to call my own, God knows,
A family and a home
A couple kiddies at my side
To keep me fat and satisfied
I want everyone to like me
That's one thing
I know for sure
I want everyone to like me
'Cause I'm a little insecure

Harps And Angels Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

Hasn't anybody seen me lately
I'll tell you why
Hasn't anybody seen me lately
I'll tell you why
I caught something made me so sick
That I thought that I would die
And I almost did too
First my knees begin to tremble
My heart begin to pound
First my knees begin to tremble
My heart begin to pound
It was arrhythmic and out of tune
I lost my equilibrium
And fell face down upon the ground
As I lay there on that cold pavement
A tear ran down my face
'Cause I thought I was dying
You boys know I'm not a religious man
But I sent a prayer out just in case
You never know
Lo and behold almost immediately
I had reason to believe my prayer had been heard in a very special place
'Cause I heard this sound
Ooooh
Yes
Ooooh
Yes, it was harps and angels
Harps and angels coming near
I was too sick to roll over and see them
But I could hear them singing ever so beautifully in my ear
Then the sound began to subside
And they sounded like background singers
And a voice come down from the heavens above
It was a voice full of anger from the Old Testament
And a voice full of love from the New One
And the street lit up like it was the middle of the day
And I lay there quiet and listened to what that voice had to say
He said, "You ain't been a good man
You ain't been a bad man
But you've been pretty bad
Lucky for you this ain't your time
Someone very dear to me has made another clerical error
And we're here on a bit of a wild goose chase
But I want to tell you a few things
That'll hold you in good stead when it is your time
So you better listen close
I'm only going to say this once
When they lay you on the table
Better keep your business clean
'Fore they lay you on the table
Better keep your business clean
Don't want no back stabbing, ass grabbing
You know exactly what I mean
Alright girls - we're outta here"
Ooooh
"Encore. Encore."
Ooooh
[He spoke French]
"Tres bien
Encore"
And off they went into the night
Almost immediately I felt better
And I come round to see you boys
'Cause you know we ain't living right
And while it was fresh
I wanted to tell you what he told me
He said, "When they lay you on the table
Better keep your business clean
When they lay you on the table
Better keep your business clean
Else there won't be no harps and angels coming for you
It'll be trombones, kettle drums, pitchforks and tambourines"
Sing it like they did for me one time
Ooooh - yes
Ooooh - beautiful
Wish I spoke French
So actually the main thing about this story is for me
There really is an afterlife
And I hope to see all of you there
Let's go get a drink

Losing You Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

Was a fool with my money
And I lost every dime
And the sun stopped shining
And it rained all the time
It did set me back some
But I made it through
But I'll never get over losing you

Do you know how much you mean to me?
Should've told you 'cause it's true
I'd get over losing anything
But I'll never get over losing you

When you're young
And there's time
To forget the past
You don't think that you will
But you do
But I know that I don't have time enough
And I'll never get over losing you

I've been cold
I've been hungry
But not for awhile
I guess most of my dreams have come true
With it all here around me
No peace do I find
'Cause I'll never get over losing you
No, I'll never get over losing you

Laugh And Be Happy Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

I know what's going on here
Ain't no mystery
Y'all have lost faith in yourselves
It's as clear as it can be

You can whine all you want to
Drown in your misery
Or you can listen to me
Listen to me

Laugh and be happy
Don't you ever wear a frown
Don't let the bastards grind you down

Laugh and be happy
It's a simple thing to do
Believe in your dreams
And your dreams will come true for you

There'll be a red sun shining in a sky so blue
Blackbirds singing in the trees

There's a real silver lining
Up there for me and you
Listen to me
Listen to me

Now the country that we're living in

Happy Immigrants: You mean the good ol' USA?

That's right!
It's never been about keeping you out
It's about inviting you in and letting you play

Laugh and be happy
Don't you ever wear a frown
Get right back on your feet
Whenever they knock you down

You've got to laugh and be happy
Smile right in their face
'Cause pretty soon
You're gonna take their place

They'll come whack whack whackin' like old man trouble
Whacking on your front door
They try to send you packin' on the double
But you ain't going away no more

Laugh and be happy
Don't you ever wear a frown
Don't let the bastards grind you down

Laugh and be happy
Now listen to what I say
Everything's going to go your way
You'll be on top of the world

I'd like to say a few words
In defense of our country
Whose people aren't bad
Nor are they mean
Now the leaders we have
While they're the worst that we've had
Are hardly the worst
This poor world has seen

Take the Caesars for example
Within the first few of them
They were sleeping with their sister,
Stashing little boys in swimming pools
And burning down the city
And one of 'em, one of 'em
Appointed his own horse to be Consul of the Empire
That's like vice president or something
Wait a minute, that's not a very good example is it?
But wait, here's one,
The Spanish Inquisition
It put people in a terrible position
I don't even like to think about it
Well sometimes I like to think about it

Just a few words in defense of our country
Whose time at the top
Could be coming to an end
We don't want your love
And respect at this point is pretty much out of the question
But times like these
We sure could use a friend

Hitler
Stalin
Men who need no introduction
King Leopold of Belgium, that's right
Everyone thinks he's so great
Well he owned The Congo and he tore it up too
He took the diamonds
He took the silver
He took the gold
You know what he left them with?
Malaria
A President once said,
"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"
Now, we're supposed to be afraid
It's patriotic in fact and color-coded
And what are we supposed to be afraid of?
Why of being afraid
That's what terror means, doesn't it?
That's what it used to mean

You know it kind of pisses me off
That this Supreme Court is going to outlive me
A couple of young Italian fellas and a brother on the Court now, too
But I defy you, anywhere in the world,
To find me two Italians as tightassed as the two Italians we got
And as for the brother, well
Pluto's not a planet anymore either

The end of an Empire is messy at best
And this Empire is ending
Like all the rest
Like the Spanish Armada adrift on the sea
We're adrift in the land of the brave and the home of the free

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

A Piece Of The Pie Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

Like us all you want the very best of life
A car, a house, a neighborhood that's nice
With flowers and trees and lots of little kids around
Where public schools aren't breeding grounds for vice

You say you're working harder than you ever have
You say you got two jobs and so's your wife
Living in the richest country in the world
Wouldn't you think you'd have a better life

If you lived in Norway
You'd be fine right now
Get sick there
You make the doctor wait
If you lived in Belgium
You could mediate
[Flemish/French debate]
Hey knock it off!
And the French fries are great
Hey!

Jesus Christ it stinks here high and low
The rich are getting richer
I should know
While we're going up
You're going down
And no one gives a shit but Jackson Browne
Jackson Browne
Jackson
Jackson

There's a famous saying someone famous said
As General Motors goes so go we all
Johnny Cougar's singing it's their country now
He'll be singing for Toyota by the fall

[Patriots:]
That's not true
John's a patriot
He's not like you
He's a...

Jesus Christ it stinks here low and high
Some get rich
And others just get by
Bono's off in Africa - he's never around
The country turns it's lonely eyes to who?
Jackson Browne
Jackson Browne
Jackson Browne

A piece of the pie
That's all we're asking for
A piece of the pie

Satisfaction guaranteed
Getting everything you need?
Hand delivered, quite discreet
'Cause you're on Easy Street

Any place you want to go
We'll call ahead and let them know
Get you in through the backdoor
But you get a front row seat
'Cause you're on Easy Street

All your old friends
I know you love 'em so
Gonna break your heart
But you're gonna have to let them go
Your friends up here must be the elite
You'll like everyone you meet

Watch the world roll by at your feet

Do your worst

You think anyone up here is ever going to say no to you?
Nah

Now you don't know how you got here
And how the whole world knows your name
Forget about it
Relax enjoy yourself
Everywhere you go they're glad you came

Baby you're on Easy Street
Life is sweet
Let them worship at your feet
On Easy Street

Korean Parents Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

Kids today got problems
Like their parents never had
Neighborhoods are dangerous
The public schools are bad
At home there are distractions so irresistible
The hours fly by
No work gets done

Some Jewish kids still trying
Some white kids trying too
But millions of real American kids don't have a clue
Right here on the lot
We got the answer
A product guaranteed to satisfy

Korean parents for sale
You say you're not all that you want to be
You say you got a bad environment
Your work at school's not going well

Korean parents for sale
You say you need a little discipline
Someone to whip you into shape
They'll be strict but they'll be fair

Look at the numbers
That's all I ask
Who's at the head of every class?
You really think they're smarter than you are
They just work their asses off
Their parents make the do it

[Saleslady:]
Oh, learn to play the violin
Oh, to turn your homework in right on time

What a load off your back that will be
No tears
No regret
Never forget who sent Fido to the farm

The greatest generation
Your parents aren't the greatest generation
So sick of hearing about the greatest generation
That generation could be you
So let's see what you can do
Korean parents and you

Only A Girl Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

She's only a girl
And her voice is peculiar
And her eyes are strange
She's prone to be willful
You try to cheer her up some
But she's impervious to change

She's dresses in black all of the time
Wears an orthopedic shoe
It's some sort of uglification thing she's into

She's a hundred and ten
Maybe five foot five
She don't eat meat
But she'll eat you alive
She's only a girl
But she's big time

She's only a girl
And I'll tell you about her
At least all that I know
She's from South Carolina
And she came out here
A few years ago

She waits on tables
Works in a bank
Volunteers at the zoo
She sure ain't lazy
But she's very young
That's why I called you

Now that you've seen her, what do you think?
Uh-huh
Yeah
Etc...

Love is blind
And deaf as well
But I love this girl
Can't you tell?
She's only a girl
And she loves me

Why would someone
Beautiful as she
Love someone old like me
Maybe it's the money
Jeez, I never thought of that

God damn it

Potholes Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

I love women
Have all my life
I love my dear mother
And I love my wife - God bless her
I even love my teenage daughter
There's no accounting for it
Apparently I don't care how I'm treated
My love is unconditional or something

I've been hurt a time or two
I ain't gonna lie
I have my doubts sometimes
About the ethics of the so called fairer sex
Fair about what?
But I find time goes by
And one forgives as one forgets
And one does forget

God bless the potholes
Down on memory lane
God bless the potholes
Down on memory lane
Everything that happens to me now
Is consigned to oblivion by my brain

I remember my father
My brother of course
I remember my mother
I spoke of her earlier and I remember that
I remember the smell of cut grass
And going off to play ball in the morning
Funny story about that

Now I used to pitch
I could get the ball over the plate
But anyway, this one time
I must of thrown a football around or something the day before
I walked about fourteen kids in a row
Cried
Walked off the mound
Handed the ball to the third baseman
And just left the field

Anyway, many years later
I brought the woman who was to become my second wife-God bless her
To meet my father for the first time
They exchanged pleasantries
I left the room for a moment
It was the first time he had met her you understand
When I came back
He was telling her the story
Right off the bat
About how I had walked fourteen kids
Cried and left the mound
Next time he met her he told her the same Goddamn story!

God bless the potholes
Down on memory lane
God bless the potholes
Down on memory lane
I hope some real big ones open up
And take some of the memories that do remain

Feels Like Home Lyrics

Artist : RANDY NEWMAN
Album : Harps And Angels

Something in your eyes
Makes me want to lose myself
Makes me want to lose myself
In your arms

There's something in your voice
Makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts
The rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how low I've felt for so long
If you knew how I wanted someone
To come along
And change my life the way you've done

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

A window breaks
Down a long dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright 'cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see
Through the dark there's a light

If you knew how much this moment
Means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
If you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought I'd love anyone so much

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back
Where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

It Feels So Good Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

You always make me smile
When I'm feeling down
You give me such a vibe
It's totally bonafide

It's not the way you walk
And it ain't the way you talk
It ain't the job you got
That keeps me satisfied

Your love, it feels so good
And that's what takes me high
Higher than I've been before
Your love, it keeps me alive
Thought I should let you know
That your touch it means so much
When I'm alone at night
It's you I'm always thinking of

Oh, oh, baby

Oh, i want you to understand
How I feel, deep inside
Oh oh, you make me feel
All I need to feel
Yes, in my heart

Your love, it feels so good
And that's what takes me high
Higher than I've been before
Your love, it keeps me alive
Thought I should let you know
That your touch it means so much
When I'm alone at night
It's you I'm always thinking of

Put a spell on you, 'cause you're mine
Better stop the things you do

Put a spell on you, 'cause you're mine
You better stop the things you do
No, I'm not lying
Put a spell on you

Are You Ready? Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

Are you ready?

It is time for a love sensation, to feed the minds of the younger generation
What we never had, what we missed out on
Don't be afraid to admit it has gone, slightly wrong
Give them hope to release the tension, for the lack of communication
Time to get it right, it shouldn't take long
Make them feel, like they belong

Are you ready to be part of the solution?
Are you ready, step forward in the time?
Are you ready to make your contribution?
Are you ready, if you ain't it is a crime, yeah

Shattered dreams are a regular occurrence
Killing a man doesn't even disturb us
Insecurity spreads across the land
I can't help but wonder, how long can this go on?
Time has come for us to get it straight now
Understand what it is that just can't wait no more, no
Time to get real, yes
Tell me how you feel

[Chorus]

Ready or not
Ready or not
Ready or not we're coming

Ready or not
Ready or not
Ready or not we're coming

Ready or not
Changing your perception, yeah
Ready or not
We're losing our direction
Ready or not
To see with what we're dealing
Ready or not
To see what we believe in

Take a look around, I know that I'm not dreaming
Hopefully you'll see, it's yourself you are deceiving
Think of the price, that we are forced to pay
For our ignorance, now there is no time for delay

Cold And Lonely Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

'Cause I don't like to be cold and lonely
Gonna warm myself by your fire
And keep myself warm

No time to cry, when I'm needing
I need you in my soul, yeah
'Cause that's when you're strongest and
Maybe it's time for me, to move on
Move on
Feel the sun, feel the rain
Don't leave me lonely and cold in pain
No way
Now I think it's time
To check out the other side of the coin
See if I can find some happiness, there
'Cause I don't like to be cold and lonely
Gonna warm myself by your fire
And keep myself warm
'Cause I know what it's like to be cold and lonely
How can you do this to me, how can you do this to me?
How can you do this to me, how can you do this to me?
Tell me now

'Cause I don't like to be cold and lonely
Gonna warm myself by your fire
And keep myself warm

Drama Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

Well here I go in the wind
Got to face rockin' on the sound
Got my phone in my hand
My baby hit me 2 times
I gotta hit her back, she says she's flyin' in tonight
See my baby's been gone for so long
She's back in town
It's time to get it on
She told me she would meet me at my spot about 8:00
That gives 2 whole hours to get my shit straight
I hit my place around 6
It's most time to see her, almost time to get my fix
I just can't wait to see my baby's face
She's not like all these others on the paper chase
She's the kind of girl that you wanna stay true to
There's nothing that this girl wouldn't do for you, no
I think I hear her in my driveway
Open up the door and this and this is what she had to say

I found someone to, do what you used to
Boy you thought you were deceivin' me, with your infidelity
I found someone who really deserves me, and he's all I need
I'm making my moves, I've found someone new and got no more love for you

How could you go and do this to me baby?
Since you hit town your had me running around actin' crazy
And had I known you treat me this way
We had to swing this drama for another day baby
This was your night, the room was on, beepers on
My shit was tight, you blew it baby, now it's blown
And after all I done for you
You messed around and blew the best thing that ever happened to you baby

Now don't go and put this all on me
Since I left town you've been tryin' to run down with every girl you see
I can't believe you do this to me, ohhh baby
I heard about your friend with the red dress
Now why you wanna go and play a game you can't win
You didn't know she was my best friend
And now we're all up in your pockets for your benjamins

I found someone to, do what you used to
Boy you thought you were deceivin' me, with your infidelity
I found someone who really deserves me, and he's all I need
I'm making my moves, I found someone new and got no more love for you

I found someone to, do what you used to
Boy you thought you were deceivin' me, with your infidelity
I found someone who really deserves me, and he's all I need
I'm making my moves, I found someone new and got no more love for you

Don't leave me baby
Said I love you baby
Said I need you baby
Stay right here with me baby

Move Closer Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

Oh you're so far away, I can't share anything with you
So come on over here, for a moment before it's too late
I got no more time, for sitting around
For sitting around, fantasizing
So I want to
So I want to
So I want to
So I want to feel you, So move a little closer
I want to touch you, so move a little closer
Feel you, so move a little closer
I want to touch you, so move a little closer

Oh you're so far away, I can't share anything with you
So come on over here, for a moment before it's too late
I got no more time, for sitting around, fantasizing
I got no more time, sitting around, fantasizing

And I want to touch you all
And I want you feel you now
And I want to give you everything
I want to give you everything that

Feel you, so move a little closer
I want to touch you, so move a little closer
Feel you, so move a little closer
I want to touch you, so move a little closer

Oh you're so far away, I can't share anything with you
So come on over here, for a moment before it's too late
I got no more time, for sitting around, fantasizing

Feel you so move a little closer
I want to touch you, so move a little closer
Feel you so move a little closer
I want to touch you, so move a little closer

Can't Get Enough Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

Everybody wants to do their own things
But inflation is rising
Everybody wants a little happiness
But we all got to pay a price

Cash in the hand is all they want
Cash in the hand is all they need
That's how it is today
Cash in the hand is all I want
Cash in the hand is all I need
It helps me through the day

I just can't get enough, when will I get enough
It makes me feel so rough, oh it makes me feel so rough
When I can't get enough, when will I get enough
Oh, it seems so tough

Nobody really wants to know me, I'm not happy enough for them
Nobody really wants to help me, they can only help themselves

Cash in the hand is all they want
Cash in the hand is all they need
That's how it is today
Cash in the hand is all I want
Cash in the hand is all I need
It helps me through the day

I just can't get enough, when will I get enough
It makes me feel so rough, oh it makes me feel so rough
When I can't get enough, when will I get enough
Oh, it seems so tough

Cash in me pocket, see me big 'bout cha
Cash in me pocket, see me big 'bout cha
Brand new car, see me big 'bout cha
Brand new car, see me big 'bout cha
Herb in me pocket, see me big 'bout cha
Passport's full, see me big 'bout cha
Man on my arm, see me big 'bout cha
Beauty treatment, see me big 'bout cha

I just can't get enough, when will I get enough
It makes me feel so rough, oh it makes me feel so rough
When I can't get enough, when will I get enough
Oh, it seems so tough

Hear My Cry Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

So many words are spoken
But nothing seems to get throught of you
So many hungry people are dying
So what are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?
Think about it, yeah
What are we gonna do about it?
Hear the voices, hear them calling
Calling out to you
I wanna live on a happier planet
Where a guilty conscience is a normal thing
I wanna live on a happier planet
Where I'm respected for the love I give
Oh yeah, ah

Chorus
So don't you hear my cry?
I'm calling out to, I'm calling out to you
Oh yeah, ah
So don't you hear my cry?

Sadness sweeping over the world
Can't you feel it?
Why is it so hard for us to love?
And so easy to hate


I wanna live on a happier planet
Where judgment is not by color of skin
I wanna live on a happier planet
Where I'm respected for the love I give
Do you find this all entertaining?
Destruction of the human race
If there is a God out there somewhere
How much more can we take? Oh yeah, ah

Chorus

Traveled all around the earth
Searching for a love--it's hard to find
So hard to find
I go home switch on my TV
All I see is pain, and there's no gain
When will it end? Take it from me, my heart is yearning
How long can this carry on?
Seeking the sounce of my inspiration
To set my spirit free

Chorus

Can you hear the voices calling out?...

Empty (Hideaway) Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

The shallow need to feel wanted
Worshiped and adored and never be ignored
I give you love but you don't see it
You never understand
My world is in your hand, and
I have this thought in my head
And it's about being noticed
I have this thought in my head
And it's about being noticed
We hide away
Somebody stop me feeling empty
We hide away
Somebody stop me feeling empty
You start this dance but I'm leading
I act out the abuse
Bewildered and confused, oh
Tonight I'm yours, but I don't feel it
You say it's all a game, but one can only play it
I have this thought in my head
And it's about being noticed
We hide away, somebody
We hide away, somebody stop me
We hide away
Somebody stop me feeling empty
We hide away
Somebody stop me feeling empty
We hide away
I have this thought in my head
And it's about being noticed
We hide away
Somebody stop me feeling empty
We hide away
Somebody stop me feeling empty

Love Is On Our Side Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

I'll be around, love is on our side
I'll be around, love is on our side

Love is a 2 way street
Didn't know what pain could bring
Time has shown me the way
Now I'm here for a brighter day
For the first time in my life
I can really see the light
In hearts we both have found
True love won't let us down

I'll be around, love is on our side
I'll be around, love is on our side

Now more than anytime
I need you in my life
Joy will be our guide
Keep the feeling rain or shine
Tender moments fill my mind
They remain till the end of time
Clouds are gone, the skies are clear
And a deeper love appears

I'll be around, love is on our side
I'll be around, love is on our side

Sky Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

Look at me
It really was not easy
But I can breathe
And I'm so grateful 'cause I can see
I am free to do exactly what I please
So come with me to a place where we can be

Ooh I wanna touch the sky
I wanna fly so high
Ooh I wanna hold you
I wanna love you tonight
Ooh I wanna touch the sky
I wanna fly so high
Ooh I wanna satisfy
I wanna make you cry

Follow me to a place where we can be
Absolutely free
To be exactly what you want to be
Completely, lose control that's when I need you more
Give me the key, to set your heart and spirit free

Ooh I wanna touch the sky
I wanna fly so high
Ooh I wanna hold you
I wanna love you tonight
Ooh I wanna touch the sky
I gonna fly so high
Ooh I wanna satisfy
I wanna make you cry

I know what I want
And I know I need it right now
Gonna take you on a journey
To a far away place now
Gonna take you on a journey to a far away place now

Ooh I wanna touch the sky
I wanna fly so high
Ooh I wanna hold you
I wanna love you tonight
Ooh I wanna touch the sky
I wanna fly so high
Ooh I wanna satisfy
I wanna make you cry

Ooh like a bird in the sky
Just you and I
I'm gonna fly like a bird in the sky
Just you and I
We're gonna fly like a bird in the sky
Just you and I

I wanna love you now
I wanna take you high
I wanna give you everything
That you desire

I wanna love you now
I wanna take you high
I wanna give you everything
That you desire

I wanna love you now
I wanna take you high
I wanna give you everything
That you desire

Learn To Forget Lyrics

Artist : SONIQUE
Album : Hear My Cry

Oohhh
The selfish way I've learnt to live
With it all take and none left to give
It's strange the change we're left to face
When love is gone I find myself back at square one

I gotta learn to forget
There's no future in the past
Only memories that fade
Speak with my heart not my head
'Cause some things are better left unsaid

Guess you and I were never meant to be
Seems the more I look, the less I see
Wasting time when I'm trying to find
The thing that we lost for far too long
And now it's back to square one

I gotta learn to forget
There's no future in the past
Only memories that fade
Speak with my heart not my head
'Cause some things are better left

Wish that I could change the things I said about you
Wish that I could change the way that you feel
And God knows I'd die to be in your arms again
Chase away the hurt, kiss away the pain

I gotta learn to forget
There's no future in the past
Only memories that fade
Speak with my heart not my head
Learn to forgive and forget
Love's empty words and regrets
'Cause some things are better left unsaid

When We Were Five Lyrics

Artist : SORAIA, CHARLENE
Album : Moonchild

I don't see if you are meant for me
Why can't I even talk to you?
And you know that in time I'll declare you're mine,
Until then I just won't talk to you...
Please come back soon...

I watched as you sunk into the moonlight..
I watched as you sunk into the moon...
Don't cry, remember who I am, I broke your heart..
Don't cry, remember who I am - I broke your heart..!
[x2]

When we were five, we stayed alive, when we were young...

Daffodils Lyrics

Artist : SORAIA, CHARLENE
Album : Moonchild

Strollin' past the Daffodils
I won't forget how it feels
To be lost in the maze.

Laying on the sunkissed patch
Of grass we found round the back
Of that palace garden place...

There wasn't a cloud in sight,
Nor people strolling by.
You held your hand in mine and I sighed,
For there was not much
To be found... in your eyes

Oh, of all the sights I've seen
never knew it'd be you me and Buckley Bee
in the cool, warm shade.

And I should of kissed your face...
I should've explored all the places...
Ooo, oh my...
How you seem to make me shy...
Ooo, and every time you kiss me on the lips
I think of how I could get used to this.
Used to your kisses....

So wakey, wakey, rise and shine...
So wakey, wakey, rise and shine,
T'was another lovely evening again last night
Honestly did I not blige to your every whim,
Seen as I was beholden?

Ooo, oh my...
How you seem to make me shy...
Ooo, and every time you kiss me on the lips
I think of how I could get used to this...

So wakey, wakey, rise and shine...

Ooo, oh my...
How you seem to make me shy...
Ooo, and every time you kiss me on the lips
I think of how I could get used to this...

Bipolar Lyrics

Artist : SORAIA, CHARLENE
Album : Moonchild

I'm bipolar, nobody knows it, but me,
I make bad decisions and everyone sees them, but me,
I think I'll have a baby with the man who beats me,
who abuses and confuses me and also threatens to kill me,
but I think I'll keep the baby, though everyone says, I'm not right in the head,
though that's not heard from heart.

Everyone is criticising, picking fights with me,
I'm recklessly aggressive, I'll talk [?]
but the love of a child will heal my broken heart,
but babies don't need daddies, fathers can be forgotten,
so I think I'll keep the baby, though everyones says, I'm not right in the head,
though it's not heard from my heart.

I'm bipolar [x3]
nobody knows it, nobody knows,
nobody knows [x3]
I think I'll keep the baby,
nobody knows [x5]
I think I'll keep the baby.

Bike Lyrics

Artist : SORAIA, CHARLENE
Album : Moonchild

I love you so much I could leave you
I could wait around for another you
to come along and admit
what's gone wrong is no-ones fault

and I love you so much
I could leave you...

The silence comes to a close
as the leaves fall to the ground,
I can't believe a year's gone by
and it feels like I just found out

that I love you...!

Just leave me be and
I'll let you breathe,
I'll let you seek out all
that you wish to see.

'Cause I love you so much,
I could leave you tonight

My bed will stay cold 'till
the morning light wakes me...
... or until it breaks me

The silence comes to a close
as the leaves fall to the ground,
I can't believe a year's gone by
and it feels like I just found out

That I... that I love you...

Well I love you so much?

I like the fact you tend
to ride out on your bike,
and come home after forging
for the lonely likes of me...

Anna Lyrics

Artist : AL STEWART
Album : Zero She Flies

Anna, turns out the light
Sits down alone
The echo of his foot on the stair
Turning to stone
No, he didn't take very much
Just your flesh from the bone
It's gonna be hard for a while
Trying to get by
On your own

Zero She Flies Lyrics

Artist : AL STEWART
Album : Zero She Flies

She's a mollusk,
a seamstress,
a princess,
a priestess,
a negress,
she knows her position

She's a swallow,
a willow,
a cello,
a pillow,
a bow
and also a physician

She takes your eyes
and mends your head
She draws the wine
and breaks the bread
She has no lies to tell you
and no truths to sell you
She's a girl,
she's almost a woman

And Zero she flies as the morning sighs
Spreads her wings like a seagull
From the mountain he watches her,
biding his time
But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle

He's a hawthorn,
a raven,
a scarecrow,
a haven
for moon-blessed thought and opinion
He will laugh like the fountains,
the bones of the mountains
lie deep in his forest religion

You will call his name when evening falls
And the ground sets hard and the night wind calls
You will feed him and heed him,
at times you will need him
Say you were almost his woman

And Zero she flies as the morning sighs
Spreads her wings like a seagull
From the mountain he watches her,
biding his time
But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle

In the shuddering mad red blood-let sunset
a tired man is leaving his cover
And the soft eyes of Zero
are cut by the sounds
of the vanishing feet of her lover

And the door slams shut
and the air grows tight
And her throat is gripped
by the hands of night
And all that is left
is the clock on the shelf
As it ticks one day into another

And Zero she sighs as the morning dies
With the broken wings of a seagull
From the mountain he watches her, sensing his time
But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle

At the pall of the day the man of the mountain
is nearing the end of his travel
And the fence is down
on the westland bounds
and a footfall pounds in the gravel

Comes a knock three times
and the air grows still
As he steps inside from the sudden chill
And the moment is caught in the net of the night
For the coming of dawn to unravel

And Zero she flies as the morning sighs
Spreads her wings like a seagull
From the mountain he's coming,
judging his time
And his eyes are the eyes of an eagle

Oh Zero she flies as the morning dies
Spreads her wings like a seagull
From her window he watches her,
a man in his time
But his eyes are the eyes of an eagle

Lyke-Wake Dirge Lyrics

Artist : AL STEWART
Album : Zero She Flies

(This ae nighte, this ae nighte)
(Any nighte and alle)
(Fire and fleet and candle-lighte)
(And Christe receive thy saule)

When thou from hence away art past
Any nighte and alle
To Whinny-muir thou com'st at last
And Christe receive thy saule.

If thou gavest hosen and shoon
Any nighte and alle
And sit thee down and put them on
And Christe receive thy saule.

Well, if hosen and shoon thou ne'er gav'st nane
Any nighte and alle
The whinnes sall prick thee to the bare bane
And Christe receive thy saule.

From Brig o' Dread whence thou may'st pass
Any nighte and alle
To Purgatory fire thou com'st at last
And Christe receive thy saule.

If ever thou gav'st meat or drink
Any nighte and alle
The fire sall never make thee shrink
And Christe receive thy saule.

If meat or drink thou ne'er gav'st nane
Any nighte and alle
The fire will burn thee to the bare bane
And Christe receive thy saule.

You Don't Even Know Me Lyrics

Artist : AL STEWART
Album : Orange

All right you saw me in the International Times
You've got my picture in your book
You tell your friends not to call at weekend,
And now you wear that far-off look
All right you stole your mother's best sheets
And put them on my bed
And you remember all the words that I say
And now you keep them in your head

But you don't even know me
You don't even know me
You don't even know me at all

All right I told you that I'm leaving London
The Summer seems so long
I've got no money to pay the rent
I've got no place to take my songs
And then you tell me I should keep on trying
You hand me an envelope
With all the money that you'd saved up
You couldn't stand to see me go

But you don't even know me
You don't even know me
You don't even know me at all

All right I took you to the Hendrix concert
On the seventh day of May
And through the Summer of 1967
We were part of the seeds of change
And now you say that we can really make it
We've got nowhere to fall
And though the signs are hung in the rainy distance
You don't see them at all

But you don't even know me
You don't even know me
You don't even know me at all

But you don't even know me
You don't even know me
You don't even knew me at all

You don't know me at all
You don't know me at all

All right I think that we should stay together
For a while

Amsterdam Lyrics

Artist : AL STEWART
Album : Orange

Oh I just came back from Haarlem
On the very last day of Autumn
Made it through the customs, took the bus into town
The flat looked cold and empty
The chairs unused and dusty
Just a few old letters and papers lying around
The Dutch people were friendly
You know they put me up and they fed me
All along a tour of one night stands
All my days and all my ways
Are so confused
I tell you right new
I'm going to make it back to Amsterdam

And you can feel fine anytime
You choose to lose yourself for a while
Bottle of wine
In some back street cafe
Or out on the street, there's a chance
For you to meet anybody you please
Taking the time
To ease your blues away

Fred was a crazy driver
He took us at a hundred miles an hour
Down a side street out of a traffic jam
All my days and all my ways
Are so bemused
I tell you right now
I'm going to make it back to Amsterdam

Oh I just came back from Haarlem
And the very thing I was wanting
Was to find some way to let you know how I felt
You can't say much in an evening
If you know you'll soon be leaving
There's not much time to talk, and it's maybe as well
But I wanted to give you something
Because you knew you really helped me
So I've written you a song with a small West Indian band
And though it seems some days that all my ways are
Bound to lose
I tell you right now
I'm going to make it back to Amsterdam

Amsterdam
Amsterdam
Amsterdam

Pah-pa-pa-pah
