Tell me why you reach
Grasping for my knee, my wrist
The ladder on this beach, connecting you to me like this

Oh My Stars Lyrics

Artist : BELLE, ANDREW
Album : The Ladder
Have a seat upon this branch of mine
It's been a while honey I think I feel fine
I see the question mark a top your spine
I've got a ladder honey won't you let me climb
Tell me all about your foreign wars
And all about the photographs that line your drawers
Cause I know a lot about closing doors
But not enough about what opens up yours

Oh my my
Oh my stars
Everything you see is ours
Or it could be if you would try
I wish you would
I wish you might
Oh oh
If everything you've said to me has been true
Then all my stars are leading me to you
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Have a seat upon this branch of mine

It's been a while honey won't you take your time
And I see the question mark a top your spine
I've got a ladder honey wont you let me climb

Oh my my
Oh my stars
Everything you see is ours
Or it could be if you would try
I wish you would
I wish you might
Oh oh
If everything you've said to me has been true
Then all my stars are leading me to you
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Oh my my
Oh my stars

Don't Blame Yourself Lyrics

Artist : BELLE, ANDREW
Album : The Ladder
Oh
I don't get to sleep very well anymore because of you
Oh
And all my jeans are torn from begging on my knees in front of you

Oh
Don't blame yourself
Oh
Don't blame yourself 'cause I know that you try
But you need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

Oh
I don't like to be very sentimental if I don't have to be
Oh
But I think that I just may have glued my hands to yours
If you had asked me

Oh
Don't blame yourself
Oh
Don't blame yourself 'cause I know that you try
But you need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

Oh
Don't blame yourself
Oh
Don't blame yourself 'cause I know that you try
But you need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

Oh
Don't blame yourself
Oh
Don't blame yourself 'cause I know that you try
But you need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

Oh
Don't blame yourself
Oh
Don't blame yourself 'cause I know that you try
But you need someone to be
Someone better than me

Oh
Don't blame yourself
Oh
Don't blame yourself 'cause I know that you try
But you need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

You need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

You need someone to be
Someone better than me in your life

My Oldest Friend Lyrics

Artist : BELLE, ANDREW
Album : The Ladder
Don't wanna sound ridiculous
but I think you know I'm sick of this
and I kinda think that we can bend, do you?
I'll try to be a better friend to you
you know I miss ya in my life
and I kinda think that I realise
that I was only lookin' out for me
instead of gettin' you the help you need

who do you think you are?
who do I think I am?
barely listening to my oldest
my oldest friend

oh my oldest, my oldest friend

I've given one, you've taken two
but this medicine has followed you
from the eastern coast and back again
so I tell you once but not again
that I only miss you in my life
and I hope you finally realise
that I'm only looking out for you
when I'm not afraid to see this through

who do you think you are?
who do I think I am?
barely listening to my oldest
my oldest friend

oh my oldest, my oldest friend

So wanna sound ridiculous
'cause I think you know I'm sick of this
and I kinda think that we can bend, do you?
I'll try to be a better friend to you
you know I miss ya in my life
and I kinda think I realise
that I was only lookin' out for me
instead of gettin' you the help that you need

whoa-oh, whoa-oh oooh, whoa-oh oooh

Open Your Eyes Lyrics

Artist : BELLE, ANDREW
Album : The Ladder
Open your eyes now
Open your eyes now
It's time to see
If you can reach me

Open your eyes now
Open your eyes now
It's time to leave
It's time to leave me

Open your eyes now
Open your eyes now
It's time to see
If you still believe me

Open your life now
Open your life now
I'll try to be
All that you need me
To be

She'll be a star now
I will follow her lead
She'll be a scar now
I will still let her bleed

Open your eyes now
Open your eyes now
Try to speak
Like you can see me

Open your eyes now
Open your eyes now
I'll try to be

Almost everything
You need me to be

She'll be a star now
I will follow her lead
She'll be a scar now
I will still let her bleed
All over me

She'll be a star now
She'll be a scar now

She'll be a star now
She'll be a scar now

She'll be a star now
She'll be a scar now

She'll be a star now
She'll be a scar now

She'll be a star now
She'll be a scar now

She'll be a star now
She'll be a scar now
I will let her bleed
All over me

All over me

Make It Without You Lyrics

Artist : BELLE, ANDREW
Album : The Ladder
This is the starting of my greatest fear
I'm all packed up, getting out of here
But then you call and tell me not to go
That I'm the one who put the rock n toll
In your life

This is the starting of a brand new day
Never liked this town much anyway
I need this city like I need the rain
I know that somewhere there's a north bound train

Oh I'll
Make it without you
Make it without you
Though my body's laying here
It's my mouth that must be lying now

This is the starting of my fall from grace
My self esteem, oh it's seen better days
But you know I'll never let this go to waste
I'll keep this memory on the map I trace
Back to home

Friends go out, but I've been staying in
I know I should, but that's the way it's been
I never cared much for the taste of gin
Still don't now, oh, but it's been helping

Oh I'll
Make it without you
In my life
Oh I'll make it without you
Though my body's laying here
It's my mouth that must be lying now
It's my mouth that must be lying now

Oh I
Oh I'll make it without you
Oh I
Oh I'll make it without you
Oh I
Oh I'll make it without you!

Though my body's laying here

My Life Lyrics

Artist : BEST COAST
Album : The Only Place
When I go on airplanes, I listen to your voice
And when I go to sleep at night, I'm wishing for a choice
To go back in time
Makes what's wrong feel right
To go back in time
Makes what's wrong feel right, feel right

All the things I'm taking are making me feel insane
And when I go to sleep at night, I'm wishing for a change.
To go back in time
Makes what's wrong feel right
To go back in time
Makes what's wrong feel right, feel right

My mom was right
I don't want to die
I want to live my life
My mom was right
I don't want to die
I want to live my life
My life, my life, my life, my life
My life, my life, my life, my life, my life.

No One Like You Lyrics

Artist : BEST COAST
Album : The Only Place
If I sleep on the floor
Will it make you love me more?
If I pack up my things and leave
Can I still be the queen to your king?
No, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no.

Know that you don't mean to say things
That hurt me and drive me to my knees
Been around this crazy world
But I still want to be your girl
'Cause there's no one like you, no one like you, no one like you.
No one like you, no one like you, no one like you.
No, no, no, no.
No, no, no. no.

Let s Go Home Lyrics

Artist : BEST COAST
Album : The Only Place
There is a place where I can go
Where all my secrets, no one knows
I'll meet you there, I'll meet you there
'Cause I don't want to be anywhere else but home

I see myself at 8 years old
I'm on the couch but no one's home
My mom's not around, my dad's out of town,
'Cause I don't want to be anywhere else but home

When will I go home?
When will I go home?

I've seen all the mountains
Yes, I've seen all the trees
I've seen all the water
But nowhere compares to home

Home, let's go home

No Plans Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
I’m standing in the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans
I’m a primate
I feel no pain got no i-phone
Pluggin’ into my brain I’m hangin’ alone
In the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans

Yeah fuck you!
I’m just standing on the corner, smokin’, taking in the wider view
I’m on location I got rivers of the dead
Heading down to the station I’m thinkin’ about goin’ back to bed
‘Cause I can, no plans

If I had a plan I’d take it down and hock it
Then someone else’d own my time
Then I’d be polishing another man’s rocket
Instead a hangin’ here, looking for a rhyme

In the sun, smoking a cigarette, watching the traffic jam up
Thinkin’ about gettin’ me a black coffee in a take-away cup
Maybe tippin’ in a little medicine
From what I got hidden in a paperbag
Standing in the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans

[solo]

If I had plans I’d be tempted to sell ‘em
Then someone else’d own my time
Then I’d be working on another man’s plans
I’d never get to pay for the crime, to tell him

Shut the fuck up!
Don’t ever let ‘em catch you talkin’ to yourself
Let alone in rhyme
I’m standing in the ruins, looking at the end
Of all mankind, leaning back again
In the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans

Yeah I’m standing in the ruins, looking at the end
Of all mankind, leaning back again
In the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans.

Everybody Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
Everybody wants to be a wannabe
Living in a limousine
Everybody wants to be a tragedy
In a supermarket magazine

Everybody wants to be famous
Everybody wants more things
Everybody longs to feel the pain
That a whole lotta money’s gonna bring

Everybody wants their name on the guest list
Everybody wants to get in free
Everybody wants complete fidelity
From two or three lovers simultaneously

Everybody wants to be an individual
Everybody else does too
All I wanna be is idiot free
And outta here with you

Everybody wants to have children
No-one wants to hang around
Everybody wants the world to cry
When they’re lying in the cold cold ground

Everybody wants the ideal body
Waiting when they get back home
Whether that’s the one in Shanghai, London
New York City or the villa in Rome

Everybody wants to be an individual
Everybody else does too
All I wanna be is idiot free
And outta here with you

Everybody thinks they might have been kidnapped
And examined in a U.F.O.
Everybody’s locked into too much hock
To ever think about what they don’t want you to know

And still they’re gunna be an individual
Everybody else is too
All I wanna be is idiot free
And outta here with you

All For You Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
I get home and clean up, put on my best shirt
Put on my good shoes
My arms are hard from what I do all day
And it’s all for you, all for you

As I drive over by the steeple, by the hill
The rain is gone, the night is new
The constellations are coming out again
And it’s all for you, all for you

It’s all for you there are songs in the world
I’m singing softly as I drive
It’s all for you, cause you’re the only girl
And I’m young again
And it feels so good to be alive

I’ll take you out, we’ll find a place to eat
Somewhere small, with a view
And later on we’ll go dancing if you like
All for you, for you

The old anger has given way
To clear eyes and open hands
I’m getting stronger with each new day
Cause now I understand

It’s all for you there are songs in the world
I’m singing softly as I drive
It’s all for you, cause you’re the only girl
And I’m young again
And it feels so good to be alive

HQ454 Monroe Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
You tell me that you’re leaving me
For someone you believe to be
Devoted just to you and you alone

Well goodbye baby, you know I’ll
Be thinkin’ of you only while
I get my Chevy motor fully blown

When you said I had to choose between
This muscle car and you, my queen
There was only one way that could ever go

I used to get home when I could
But there was nothing there as good
As when I light the nitro on my
HQ454 Monroe

She got fuelie heads, a tunnel ram
Roller rockers, lumpy cam
A seated seta new L34’s

Gotta new four hundred Hydra shift
Simmons wheels, nine inch diff
Bridgestone Eagers, twelve inch just because

She’s got four a colour, four a clear
She’s lookin’ better year by year
And unlike you tonight she’s riding low

So baby its goodbye
You could never get me high
Like when I light the nitro on my
HQ454 Monroe

Well baby if I had to guess
I’d say your man is more or less
The figment of an overheated dream

The kinda thing a girl like you
Can fantasize to get you through
And rectify your battered self esteem

I’ll bet he comes to get you in
Some shopping trolley kinda thing
That gets you where you’re going nice and slow

Well off you go that’s fine
The pleasure’s all mine
When I light the nitro on my
HQ454 Monroe

Dead And Laid To Rest Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
How many torments
I’ve had in my time?
Was looking for love
By I was too blind
I stepped in the circle
To play out the game
But all that I offered
Just turned out the same

A little bit more a little bit less
Deeper in love and deeper in debt
I look at the stars that I cannot give
Without some feeling I just can’t live
Wake and remember that no one is blessed
Now I know the truth
Is dead and laid to rest

No sound but a river
That run’s from my heart
It flows from a mountain
Then tears me apart
Will there come a season
That I will not weep?
I prayed like you wanted
But it all felt too cheap

A little bit more a little bit less
Deeper in love and deeper in debt
I look at the stars that I cannot give
Without some feeling I just can’t live
Wake and remember that no one is blessed
Now I know the truth
Is dead and laid to rest

Sometimes I am frightened alone in the dark
You know I can’t hide it,
I’ve been waiting until the hurting starts

A little bit more a little bit less
Deeper in love and deeper in debt
I look at the stars that I cannot give
Without some feeling I just can’t live
Wake and remember that no one is blessed
Now I know the truth
Is dead and laid to rest

Missing A Girl Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
Looking through the tarmac rain
At the rows of giant birds
They’re all feeding at the gates,
There are tails from all over the world

A million people in between
Hurry by the TV screens
And I just sit here missing a girl

Cuppa coffee, airport bench
Carry on, and me
Something messed up my connection
To where I want to be

Something happened, the line dropped out
Something she don’t wanna talk about
And I just sit here missing a girl

Overhead the speakers tell me
One more delay
I hear the numbers
But my heart’s a million miles away

She made it clear we could still be friends
But she won’t be there to meet me at the other end
And I just sit here missing a girl

She made it clear,
I try to see it through these tears
I know it’s true
And I just sit here missing a girl

Too Late Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
Got the news
Just today
Somebody told me
To get here right away
Said you were hurtin’
Said you were low
Couldn’t get a single friend
On the telephone
But it’s . . .
Too late too late too late for love
Too late too too late to start again
Too late to hope for
Some kind of . . happy end
And it was
Too long too long too long ago
These healing years go by so slow
They don’t talk to me
Don’t offer no
Means to an end . . My friend

On and on the lazy river flows
Stretching out beneath the burning sun
Here we are standing in the road
Each about to go our separate ways
Each about to go our separate ways

I Gotta Get Back On The Road Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
There’s a lone jet-trail west of the moon
Nothing for a thousand miles below
A one-pump roadhouse, late afternoon
My time is over here, I gotta go

I gotta get back on the road
Finish up and pay
There’s nothing here as good as a girl I know
A thousand miles away
I gotta get back on the road
To where I want to be
I won’t see her till I deliver my load
By the light of another day

Outside the highway is parallel
To that stroke of chalk above
As far as I can tell

There are two reasons come to mind
Keep a good man on the run
There’s always some complication left behind
Somewhere, one day, I’ll find the other one

I gotta get back on the road…

Outside the highway waits, another year
Fades and dissipates high in the stratosphere

There’s a lone jet-trail west of the moon
Nothing for a thousand miles below
A one-pump roadhouse, late afternoon
My time is over here, I gotta go

I gotta get back on the road…

Our Old Flame Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
It’s the eyes that give the game away
As I come through the door
Of a steakhouse off the highway
And I remember years before
Those same eyes, only younger
More innocent somehow
And I wonder about your situation now

Are you married, are there children
Did you ever settle down
With that psychopathic boy
You failed to mention last time round
Or is there just a lonely room
Full of poetry
And lots of mutilated dolls that look like me

Our old flame
Our old flame
When you look at me, will you see
The man that I became
Or will you see the boy I was
See me by the light of our old flame
Our old flame

Pretty soon you’ll cross the room
To take my order down
And recognize the man with whom
You briefly hung around
Am I gonna catch a sign
Of panic in your heart
Like the panic that I’m feeling now in mine

Our old flame
Our old flame
When you look at me, will you see
The man that I became
Or will you see the boy I was
See me by the light of our old flame
Our old flame

This Day Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
I’m gonna find a way to make this day
The best one so far
It didn’t happen yesterday
Hangin’ in the bar

I rang someone from long ago
Someone from a situation
Long forgotten, better left alone

If you believe in love, you leave the door ajar
I’m gonna find a way to make this day
The best one so far

I’m gonna find a way to blow away the rain
It didn’t happen yesterday
I couldn’t face the train

All around, the office crowd
Filled the city, talking loud
Off their face, I slipped away alone

I wandered home, the streets were empty
As they often are
I’m gonna find a way to make this day
The best one so far

I’m gonna find a way to turn this world around
Find a way to make it through,
And not go down

If you believe in love, that’s the morning star
I’m gonna find a way to make this day
The best one so far

If you believe in love, you leave the door ajar
I’m gonna find a way to make this day
The best one so far

If you believe in love, that’s the morning star
I’m gonna find a way to make this day
The best one so far.

Summer Moon Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
Driving the nightshift again
Driving the nightshift again
The times I’ve rolled this line, this same old
Long headed East double lane

Driving these nightshifted eyes
Driving these nightshifted eyes
To light my way from midnight out to Hay
There’s big summer moon on the rise

Puts me in a mind, of once upon a time
A hall above the beach when I was young, it was
Too many years, too far behind
Old piano, saxophone and drum

And hanging out over the sea
That same summer moon laid for me
A road of light on out into the night
A highway to where I could be

If ever I can find that innocence of mind
The wonder in that younger set of eyes
I’ll get it on the road, the rhythm of the line
The wheeling of the desert where it flies

Come on roll up that line baby roll
Light up these nightshifted eyes
Speed my way from midnight out to Hay
Big summer moon on the rise

Speed my way from midnight out to Hay
Big summer moon on the rise

The Horizon Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
The horizon is wider than it used to be
I ain’t the boy you knew
But on a clear day, I can see
All the way to you
All the way to you

When you’re running blind
From promises broken and re-made
Then broken again
You got no way home
Nothing but the smell of burning bridges in the rain

When I look back now
I see a young man riding on
A one way rail going down
Only holding on
Riding his addiction into
Each new lonely town

The horizon is wider than it used to be
I ain’t the boy you knew
But on a clear day, I can see
All the way to you
All the way to you

I hit the railhead
One night in hell
And even now I
I dunno why I
Looked across at the gaming room
In a cheap hotel
And somehow walked on by
Somehow walked on by

Have you ever seen the western sky
As the sun goes down
Turning indigo to grey
It’s enough to make a man believe
That maybe one more chance could come my way
Maybe one more chance could come my way

The horizon is wider than it used to be
I ain’t the boy you knew
But on a clear day, I can see
All the way to you
All the way to you.

I Got Things To Do Lyrics

Artist : COLD CHISEL
Album : No Plans
I got things to do
I don’t want to
Give me way more time to spend with you
Honey when you’re gone
You’re gone too long
It sure gets lonely when you’re gone away

If you hear me cry
Your name in the night
Baby I’m just tryin’ to find your welcome light
Well there’s only one
You’re thinkin’ of
It sure gets lonely when you’re gone away

My work is done, this is my time
And there’s someone I need to know
Maybe one day we’ll find
We won’t have no need to go

[solo]

My work is done, this is my time
And there’s somewhere I need to go
Maybe one day we’ll find
We won’t have no need to go

I got things to do
I don’t want to
Give me way more time to spend with you
Honey when you’re gone
You’re gone too long
It sure gets lonely when you’re gone away

I got things to do today

Dancing My Blues Away Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
Beat up soul
Looking to find a smile
Ain't nobody here to give you the reason why
I need the wings of an angel
Need to find me a way to fly

Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance 'til my blues can't stay
Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away

There is something worth knowing
Written behind those eyes
Well I've got tears by the truckload
Let's laugh 'til they all run dry
Let's steal the wings from those angels
And kiss what we know goodbye

Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance 'til my blues can't stay
Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away

Rock And Roll Tonight Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I gotta thousand bits of paper
all spinning in my head
I hope I see you later
I can't remember what you said.
Something about keeping the grip
keeping it tight
before I lose control
I gotta rock and roll tonight

I got way too many questions
there all waiting on my call
I'm losing my direction
I'm dropping every ball
got to find some color
These working shoes are getting too darn tight
I gotta loosen up
I gotta rock and roll tonight.

Well you're bleeding for the money
but you never pay it back.
Pressure gage is screaming and the face is
starting to crack.
This ain't no way to live
Lord you know this kinda life ain't right.
Before I lose control
I gotta rock and roll tonight.

Never Tie Me Down Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I got a load of bad stuff
Laying heavy on my mind
I got a smile that sometimes
I find so hard to find
I got trouble
Chasing me every day
Too scared to look out
See what the bad sings say
Well you can beat up on my busted soul
Leave it bleeding on the ground
But oh Lord you ain’t ever gonna tie me down

I got the Devil
He follows me around
He keep coming
Chasing me from town to town
I got a two ton bag of lead
Slammin’ down on me
Well, peace and love
Oh baby that ain’t never coming near me
Beat my soul
Leave it bleeding chained and bound
But let me tell you
You ain’t never gonna chain me down
Oh Lord, never tie me down

You better look out
Cos I’m always gonna be around
I’ll tell you why, I’ll tell you why, why why
Oh Lord, you ain’t never gonna chain me down

The Chance Of Love Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I came here to dance
To show my faith
To try and lose my blues
Something that takes its place

[Chorus:]
I don’t care about the moon
And the stars above
It ain’t something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love

I have been out and long the hard wire
Trying to make it babe
We all need to get lucky
And a chance to come my way

[Chorus:]
So I don’t care about the moon
And the stars way above
Got something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love

Dress me up in pretty clothes
Let everybody see
The only thing [?] set you free
The chance of love

And I am praying for an angel
Yeah I am looking for a …
Nobody wants to give up
Everybody wants to play

[Chorus:]
So I don’t care about the moon
And the stars way above
Got something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love
The chance of love
The chance of love
The chance of love

The Last Open Road Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
How fast can I run?
How far can I go?
These are the questions,
The young want to know
I met her in Brooklyn,
She was coming from a place
I said "where are you going to"?
She said "where have you been"?

'Cos I'm trapped in here,
Set me free
I know your world let me see
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road

I know there is so much past
this place
I see it smile on your jagged,
ragged face
Something tells me,
something strong
There's a world I've heard of,
So before it's gone
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road

Electric Guitar Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
Got me an electric guitar
Don't she look so pretty
I got me an electric guitar
Oh don't she look so pretty
I bought her in a small town
I'm gonna take her to the city

I got me a box with a with a speaker
I'm gonna make that baby sing
I got me a box with a with a speaker
I'm gonna make that baby sing
I'm gonna find me a future
Somewhere between these strings

Every song about a railroad track
Every song about not coming back
We'll be together, no matter how far
You and me and my electric guitar

When I turn that plastic circle
Man I get to play real loud
Oh, when I turn that plastic circle man
Man I get to play real loud
Now I can play above the bar noise
Man I'm bigger than a crowd

Got me an electric guitar

Well, they can fight and break the glasses
Now I don't hear them no more
Yeah they can fight and break the glasses
I don't hear them like before
I'm gonna take her to the city
I wont come back no more

Got me an electric guitar, yeah guitar

Oh Lord, oh Lord
Sometimes I feel like crying
Oh but I have a good time sometimes

Got to have some fun sometime

Lose My Heart In You Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
The morning came with a heavy snow
Our senses free, 'cause it's time to go
You smile and wave as the taxi pulls away
But you cannot hide what your eyes really say

Now I made up my mind, I know what I gotta do
I'm gonna lose my heart in you

A restless soul always wild and free
We are such different kinds, it sure ain't easy for me
To be without you is to lose the game
So I will surrender, I will make the change

'Cause I made up my mind, and I know what I gotta do
I'm gonna lose my heart in you

To be what's me would have to let you get you go
But all I'd be is a shadow in this lonely freezing snow

So I made up my mind, and I know what I gotta do
I'm gonna lose my heart in you

Lose my heart in you

I Will Go On Lyrics

Artist : REA, CHRIS
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I got a cold grey morning,
Waiting for me.
I look out my window,
Should don’t like what I see.
Seems like the devil himself
Is singing my song.
I pick myself up
And I will go on.

[?] in the wind and rain.
Seems like the devil himself
Is callin’ my name.
But I can’t never give up
No matter how long
So I pick myself up
And I will go on.
Pick myself up
And I will go on.

Stronger on the mountain.
There’s a wild storm at sea
Thou than I think of your sweet love
That means nothing to me.
So I will never give up
No matter how long.
I pick myself up
And I will go on.
Pick myself up, yeah
And I will go on.

Dancing My Blues Away Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
Beat up soul
Looking to find a smile
Ain't nobody here to give you the reason why
I need the wings of an angel
Need to find me a way to fly

Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance 'til my blues can't stay
Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away

There is something worth knowing
Written behind those eyes
Well I've got tears by the truckload
Let's laugh 'til they all run dry
Let's steal the wings from those angels
And kiss what we know goodbye

Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance 'til my blues can't stay
Come on and dance with me baby
Dancing my blues away

Rock And Roll Tonight Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I gotta thousand bits of paper
all spinning in my head
I hope I see you later
I can't remember what you said.
Something about keeping the grip
keeping it tight
before I lose control
I gotta rock and roll tonight

I got way too many questions
there all waiting on my call
I'm losing my direction
I'm dropping every ball
got to find some color
These working shoes are getting too darn tight
I gotta loosen up
I gotta rock and roll tonight.

Well you're bleeding for the money
but you never pay it back.
Pressure gage is screaming and the face is
starting to crack.
This ain't no way to live
Lord you know this kinda life ain't right.
Before I lose control
I gotta rock and roll tonight.

Never Tie Me Down Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I got a load of bad stuff
Laying heavy on my mind
I got a smile that sometimes
I find so hard to find
I got trouble
Chasing me every day
Too scared to look out
See what the bad sings say
Well you can beat up on my busted soul
Leave it bleeding on the ground
But oh Lord you ain’t ever gonna tie me down

I got the Devil
He follows me around
He keep coming
Chasing me from town to town
I got a two ton bag of lead
Slammin’ down on me
Well, peace and love
Oh baby that ain’t never coming near me
Beat my soul
Leave it bleeding chained and bound
But let me tell you
You ain’t never gonna chain me down
Oh Lord, never tie me down

You better look out
Cos I’m always gonna be around
I’ll tell you why, I’ll tell you why, why why
Oh Lord, you ain’t never gonna chain me down

The Chance Of Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
I came here to dance
To show my faith
To try and lose my blues
Something that takes its place

[Chorus:]
I don’t care about the moon
And the stars above
It ain’t something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love

I have been out and long the hard wire
Trying to make it babe
We all need to get lucky
And a chance to come my way

[Chorus:]
So I don’t care about the moon
And the stars way above
Got something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love

Dress me up in pretty clothes
Let everybody see
The only thing [?] set you free
The chance of love

And I am praying for an angel
Yeah I am looking for a …
Nobody wants to give up
Everybody wants to play

[Chorus:]
So I don’t care about the moon
And the stars way above
Got something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love
The chance of love
The chance of love
The chance of love

The Last Open Road Lyrics

Artist : CHRIS REA
Album : Santo Spirito Blues
How fast can I run?
How far can I go?
These are the questions,
The young want to know
I met her in Brooklyn,
She was coming from a place
I said "where are you going to"?
She said "where have you been"?

'Cos I'm trapped in here,
Set me free
I know your world let me see
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road

I know there is so much past
this place
I see it smile on your jagged,
ragged face
Something tells me,
something strong
There's a world I've heard of,
So before it's gone
Take me down that last open road
Take me down that last open road

Every Turn Of The World Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
We think about the loves we lost
Will it come again
We think of all the things we want
Will we ever win

We listen to the voice of children
Will they find their way
Keep an open heart
The answer to it all's a wish away

Never let the tears you're cryin' blind you
To the dream that's waitin' to find you
'Cause there's one more chance
With every turn of the world

Is it gold or glory
A taste of freedom
Or the strong warm touch of a body
There are all these things with every turn of the world

Human kindness - diamond of the heart
Tearing down the old walls
As long as we can share
Desire's not a sin, after all

When you find yourself alone
Missing tender magic touching you
Keep an open heart
Everything you dream can still be true

We all want a world we can live in
We all want a world full of love
It's never too late
It's never too soon
Whatever you can do is enough

Charm The Snake Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
You gotta be smart
You gotta be cool
You gotta keep a straight face
When you're playin' the fool
You gotta wear a smile
When you're breakin' the rules
You gotta charm that snake now, baby

You gotta be smooth
You gotta be quick
I think it might just help
To be a little bit sick
You know the bite can't cut you
If the skin is thick
Charm that snake now, baby

Hey, we ain't all good lookin'
There ain't no reason
To take a good lickin'
The clock on the wall
Gonna keep on tickin'
Charm that snake now, baby
Charm that snake now, baby

Whoa, oh, oh
Don't let go of it
Don't let go
Whoa, oh, oh
Gotta charm that snake
Charm that snake

One stripe, two stripes
What does it mean
The venom is lethal
But the meat is clean
The best take advantage of you like a machine
You gotta charm that snake now, maybe

Don't let the fingernails
Under the heart
If they get a good grip
They're gonna rip it apart
The first and last kisses
Are the dangerous part
You gotta charm that snake now, baby
Charm that snake now, baby

Whoa, oh, oh
Don't let go of it
Don't let go
Whoa, oh, oh
Gotta charm that snake
Charm that snake

There's a hook in the bait
The first one made a mistake
If you've got what it takes
You better charm that snake

You gotta let it show
You ain't gonna let it go
I'm gonna let 'em know
Never gonna let it go

Uh-huh, well, all right
Let's get it right
Oh, yeah

You gotta charm that snake
Whoa, gotta charm that snake now, baby
Whoa, gotta charm that snake now, baby
Charm that snake

Whoa, you gotta charm that snake now, baby
Whoa, you gotta charm that snake now, baby
Charm that snake

I Hear You Call Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
Moving in and out of light
Changing shapes of shadowed life
Bleeding out white
Pastel

To true color
Path crosses path ahead
Which way do I go
Did you go, did you go

Just before I'm lost
There's a heart on the wind

I can hear your voice again
I can feel your love again
I hear you call
Soothing motion of a dying storm

Morning tumbles from a golden horn
What you loved
What you lost
What you gained

Are the things that set you free
Forgiving bridge of now and then
Time's a canyon you can cross again
Soul touches soul

And the sound that they make will never end
I can hear your voice calling me
I can feel your love again
There's a hero's hand

Breakin' my fall
You drown the siren's song
When I hear you call

Don't Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
I guess I knew we'd come to this
Where the love can't cool the anger
So many times settled with a kiss
Love in trouble
The trouble is
You and me
Strong words, so nonchalant
Come on
We don't mean half of what we say
You say you like gettin' what you want
Me too
But I
I'll never say I never want to love you again
Don't you say goodbye
Don't you say goodbye
When you're walking out that door
Don't you say goodbye
Don't you say goodbye
Baby, don't you say goodbye
It's not a matter of weak or strong
Arms can hold you
Or they can hold you down
I can dance to the saddest song
But I won't let you stay
Where you don't belong
Oh, so while you're out there busy bein' free
Just remember
One of those roads leads back to me
Don't you say goodbye
Don't you say goodbye
When you're walking out that door
Careful what you say
You might be back someday
Baby, don't you say goodbye
I want you
I need you
But I'll let you go
If you want it that way
It's your choice
But my voice
Will whisper every day
Every step of the way
Don't say goodbye
Girl, I'll tell you why
It just might turn out that way
Don't say goodbye
Even with your eyes
Baby, don't you say goodbye
I know you care somewhere
Inside you hide the truth away
(Behind a thin disguise)
Your heart will change your mind someday
Baby, don't you say goodbye

It's You That Really Matters Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
Keeping it straight is still the hardest part
Living the truth inside your heart of hearts
I sang a song that you believed
You came inside - don't ever leave
You are the one who really matters

I had a dream that carried me
You are the one who set it free
You are the one

And around and around and around
The world has always turned
I wanted warmth - your love burned
You gave it all - I won't do less
Maybe you know but I'll confess
That you are the one who really matters

I had a dream that carried me
You are the one who set it free
You are the one
We see the things no one else can see
There is a way for you and me
We will be the ones

And in the music
There are words that say
Everything that you feel today

Every time I'm lost out in the night
I look for memories of light
You are the one I want to see
You are the one who reached for me
You are the one who really matters

We saw the things no one else could see
There was a way for you and me
We were the ones

And when someday comes along
The love we gave will still go on
We will be the ones

Love Is Love (In Any Language) Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
Checkin' out the sand streets
Of this island town
Got my cold Dos Equis
Watchin' women brown
They call it Paradiso
It looks like paradise
And it's looking better all the time

Now I'm dancin' in the moonlight
The party's everywhere
It's all a sweet seduction
To the rhythm in the air
Local girls are talkin'
I hear their bodies say
This boy won't be leavin' lonely

It's je t'aime, it's amore
Te quiero, mi chica
If it's good you'll get the message
It's je t'aime, it's amore
Eu te amo
Love is love in any language

She caught my intention
When I caught her eye
We just started movin'
Never askin' why
Faded into passion
That girl and I
Love is love in any language

Let your heart talk to the girl
Love can take you 'round the world

Aloha wau in oe
If it's good you get the message
Love is love in any language

Nakupenda mno sana sana
When it's good you get the message
Aku chinta kamu
Love is love in any language

Ich liebe dich, mein fraulein
If it's good you get the message
Love is love in any language

Swing Street Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
There's a place I know called Swing Street
Where you can really feel the heartbeat
After working hard til sundown
The city comes alive

High up, low down, down on Swing Street
Gypsy jazzmen tickling my feet
Jive and music, love and money
There's enough to get you high

Sidewalk preachers hustling bibles
Longing for one more revival
There's a truth in all these dreamers
If you read between the lines

Well, it's all right watching the world come together
A real life movie that goes on forever
Take your chances and pull on the lever
Down on Swing Street
Down on Swing Street

Morning comes, that alarm clock screaming
Coat and tie, and wheeling, dealing
I wish that I could be back on Swing Street
Watching life roll by

Everyone looks for romance
Living out of magazines
But there's still one place
Where you don't have to fake it
Down on Swing Street
Down on Swing Street

Love Found A Home Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
No more waiting 'cause the day is here
Think he's gonna make her smile
No more waiting 'cause the day is here
Hearts beat as one as they walk down the aisle

And I think that this one's gonna last forever
I think that love might have found a home
Well, I think that this one's gonna last forever
'Cause I think that love found a home

Marcia, Marcia, quick come and see
This boy ain't never gonna set you free
Hey, Roy Boy, take a look around
She's got her eye on ya
I think she knows what she's found

God gives his love to you
Blesses this day for you
No one can take that love away

No more waiting 'cause the day is here
Think she's gonna make him smile
No more waiting 'cause the day is here
One song sung as they walk down the aisle

'Cause I think that love found a home
Yeah, you can see and I can see
That I think love found a home

That Girl Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
I'm wakin' up in the same old way
But I can't shake me out of the dream
Every time that I close my eyes
I see her face
Like a star on a TV screen
They all keep askin'
Where you been after dark
I say
That kinda girl
She grows on a heart
And I know
It doesn't come any better

That girl
She makes me sing
She gives me things that only love can bring
That girl
She makes me sing

If you think
I'm losin' my cool
That's true
But I betcha'd do the same
If you felt the flame
Of her fire
She likes to make you
Crazy with love
And I let her
I know it doesn't come any better

I watch the guys
I see their eyes
I see their eyes as she walks by
She knows she's fine
I know she's mine
C-c-cuz she digs me

Open Your Heart Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Every Turn Of The World
It's a lonely ride on Noah's ark
Takin' a shot into the dark
Hopin' that someone will see the spark
Of the light in you

Noah's ark to the ship of fools
Didn't we break all the golden rules
Caught in the dance of the hours

Open your heart 'til everyone's in
It's never too late to believe and begin
Open your heart 'til everyone's in
You can wish on the light of a star 'til the end

Everyone's out on the open sea
We're all a part of the mystery
You know how lonely it can be
Surviving

You say you're gonna settle down
Just play guitar and walk around
Until you turn into the sound
Of laughter

Some do believe we came out of the sky
And at the end we will fly

Rendezvous Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
All across the sky
The mysteries of faith
Fossils of desire all assume their rightful place
Is there any danger in their fire
Is there any solace in their wake
Could it really make a world of difference for goodness' sake

Train rolls a cappella
To a sympathetic moon
Carrying the stories of every heart - earned wound
Will there be a lover at the station
Will there be a last conductor's call
Will there really be a happy ending after all

To the rendezvous
Fortunes to be told
To the rendezvous
Wonders to behold
Onto a place where we can find
Maybe a trace of peace of mind
To the rendezvous all in good time

Painting the horizon
A mast beyond the blue
Caught up in the tempest of another point of view
Could there be a mutiny in the making
Could it be a lorelei in song
Is it just a ghost that's been forgiven all along

Will there be a jewel beneath the boulder
Will there be a pride beyond the fall
Will there really be a happy ending after all
Will there be a pride beyond the fall
Will there really be a happy ending after all

To the rendezvous
Fortunes to be told
To the rendezvous
Wonders to behold
Onto a place where people find
Maybe a trace of peace of mind
To the rendezvous all in good time

Deputy Dan Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
Just another pure heart
A wide open mind
Driftin' like a cork on a sea of dreams
Playin' the school boy
Makin' believe
Dyin' to fill the shoes
The really big shoos for the TV screams

Standing on the sidelines when I was a kid
Talkin' bout the heroes and the war
Living on the frontlines wasn't quite the same
Something deep inside of me had changed

Dedicated upstart entourage
In the garage
Four crazy Juveniles
Burnin' up the midnight miles
The gigs
The juke box guinea pigs
Spending our prime
Hey man
Honkey-tonk women just one more time

Standing on the sidelines when I was a kid
Talkin' bout the heroes and the war
Living on the frontlines wasn't quite the same
Something deep inside of me had changed

Took a ride on the wild wind
And lost myself an old friend'
Don't ask me now if I'd do it again

Night Across The World Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
I've heard there could be desire
So strong you would brave the fire
Until now I made them liars
Now there is you
'Cause something about your touch
Is making me feel too much
And letting you go is such a hard thing to do

And when the dawn is closing in
I know I need to drown in your love again
I'd chase the night across the world
To spend one more minute with you

When morning lay just ahead
And daybreak invades our bed
I'll steal you away instead
And fly to the dark

'Cause when the dawn is closing in
I know I need to drown in your love again
I'd chase the night across the world
To spend one more minute with you
Alone with you

Hold on
Our wings will not fail us
On to Babylon
Where the light can't find us
Hold on
Hold on
Baby hold on

In the heat of this desperate hour
We will follow the moon and its power
That fever that we must devour
Over and over again

Angry Young Men Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
Father
Mother
Doin' the best they can
Sister
Brother
Out there livin' on the lam
Heedless
Guarded
Makes it hard to understand

With all this history
Trust won't come easily
I know it's hard to believe
Nobody meant you no harm
All the angry young men
All the lonely young girls
Caught in a web of confusion
In an unintended world

Father
Mother
We're doin' the best we can
Sister
Brother
Changing the best laid plans
Childlike
Childish
I wish you could understand

To come to maturity
With some sense of dignity
I know it's hard to believe
Nobody means you no harm

All the lonely old women
All the angry old men
Hoping the hurt was behind them
Starting it over again

Love can be the reality
But only as far as the heart can see

With all this history
Trust won't come easily
I know it's hard to believe
Nobody needs you

To come to maturity
With some sense of dignity
I know it's hard to believe
Nobody means you no harm

All the angry young men
All the lonely young girls
Caught in a web of confusion
In an unintended world

In The Blink Of An Eye Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
She said baby baby
I know what you want and I'm sure
That it's time for you to try
And get yourself the things that are yours

'Cause it could be gone in the blink of an eye
It could be dawn in the blink of an eye
Isn't it time that you reached for the sky
And let yourself go

I been crazy baby
I know what you mean and I swear
That if there's a song in the night
You know I've gotta hear it out there

'Cause it could be gone in the blink of an eye
It could be dawn in the blink of an eye
Isn't it time that you reached for the sky
And let yourself go
There's a fire deep inside

I said baby baby
Let's steal the moon and let love have its way
Burning like a falling star until we are
A million miles away

It could be gone in the blink of an eye
It could be dawn in the blink of an eye
Isn't it time that you reached for the sky
And let yourself go now
There's a fire deep inside
Let yourself go now
And forget the fears you hide
Let yourself go now
And forget the tears you cried

And when you needed me
Did I just turn away
And when I spoke my heart
Is there something I forgot to say

Is There Something Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
Lately I see clouds of sorrow in your eyes
Some deep sadness you can never quite disguise
Now I'm scared to ask what it's leading to
But I'm more afraid of not asking you

Is there something that you want to tell me
Is there something that I ought to know
Are we something that's still worth fighting for
Or should I simply let you go
Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
I'll find some way to convince you to stay
If you just tell me honestly
Is there something left of you and me

You've got secrets you've been keeping for too long
And I'm going crazy acting like there's nothing wrong
I can taste the truth every time we kiss
And I can't go on
At least not like this

I don't want to lose you
But what's the use of holding on
I don't really have you
If the feeling's gone

Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
If there's no way to convince you to stay
And be the way we used to be
Then there's something that I want to tell you
And I want you to believe it's true
We had something that I'll never forget
Even if I wanted to
'Cause part of me will always be with you

Isn't It Love Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
Maybe things are not what they seem
And baby we know it
I feel like I'm wakin' up out of a dream
And we both want to control it
I don't wanna make a wrong move
I don't wanna lose a good groove
So baby let's talk about it
Baby let's think

Isn't it love
Isn't it love that we are feeling
Isn't it love
Isn't it love
Isn't it time we stop concealing
Isn't it love

We don't have to love by the rules
So baby enjoy it
Bein' a fool for love don't make us fools
Don't let anyone destroy it
You need a home to run to
You need to have your fun too
So baby let's talk about it
Baby let's think

Isn't it love
Isn't it love that we are feeling
Isn't it love
Isn't it love
Isn't it time we start revealing
Isn't it love

And from the dawn of time
People lookin' for souls that rhyme
People lookin' people lookin' for souls that rhyme
But when our worlds collide
You gotta see it from a different side somehow
You just gotta say
We don't wanna make a wrong move
We don't wanna lose a good groove
So baby let's talk about it
Talk to me and tell me how you feel
Can we really live without it
Baby let's think

Isn't it love
Isn't it love that we are feeling
Isn't it love
Isn't it love
Isn't it time we start the healing
Isn't it love

Nothing Will Change Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
The boys find a home in a family born of hate
The girls plant desperate love
In a womb that just won't wait
Forgotten mother pushes a cart with her heart
Through a twisted fate

As walls come down and spirits rise
The business of fear never dies
The artful dodgers with their false alarms
Take from the mouths to feed the arms
Pit god against god for a piece of land
They think they hear his words but they don't understand

Like a river lost on its way to the sea
Where is humanity
I know that nothing will change
'Til it changes in me
'Til it changes in you

There's a plague upon the body
A plague upon the mind
While the bridge is burning are we deaf dumb and blind
From the fallen forest to the poison bay
The world is turning
Turning out that way

Fe fi fo fum
I smell the blood of an Englishman
Fe fi fo fum
I smell the blood of an Irishman
I smell the blood of an African
I smell the blood of Americans
I smell the blood of a Chinaman
I smell the blood of an Indian
I smell the blood of Rumanians
I smell the blood of a Latin American
I smell the blood of a million sons
I smell the blood of everyone

Driftin' Away Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
The clock is screaming and it's time to go
The day is waiting and you're moving slow
News and weather on the radio
But your mind keeps driftin' away

Work is steady and your friends are good
You're going forward like you think you should
You'd put your heart into it if you could
But your mind keeps driftin' away

Look at your world through the windowpane
Embrace that secret thing that keeps you sane
You're always saying that you can't complain
But your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away

The conversation turns to seeds you've sown
It gets you thinkin' 'bout someone you've known
She's always with you but she's still alone
And your mind keeps driftin' away

We make excuses but you know damn well
A dream's a story only you can tell
You've tasted heaven and you've been through hell
But your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away

Another sunset another dawn
Hard to distinguish where the lines are drawn
Hard to imagine where the time has gone
You might discover you're where you belong
When your mind is driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away

We make excuses but you know damn well
A dream's a story only you can tell
You've tasted heaven and you've been through hell
But your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away

A Fisherman's Tale Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Rendezvous
Took my troubles
Down to the sea
Put my ear to a seashell
Inquisitively

Thought I heard a heartbeat
It could have been mine
I guess it doesn't matter
In the grand design

Like a windblown sail
Like a fisherman's tale
There's no end to the glory
Like a windblown sail
Like a fisherman's tale
There's no end to the story

Don't let your vision
Go down with the sun
'Cause it might be cloudy
When tomorrow comes

Where the winds of a heart
Meet the wiles of a mind
There will be stillness
At the waterline

When I was young and time was free
I thought the world was reaching out for me
I believed I could
I believed I would
Live forever and ever

Took my troubles
Down to the sea
Put my ear to a seashell
Inquisitively

Been There, Done That Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
You've seen my face
Hey don't you know my name
It wasn't all that long ago I had my fifteen minutes of fame
If it was you caught in a crazy game
Would you still look as good standing in the rain

Whatever gets you through the night
Take it from me — its gonna be aright

Been there done that
Been there — then somebody takes you back
Been there done that
So hard, hard to avoid the trap

They break your heart — why do we let them in
The drug is strong but the will is weak
We make the same mistakes again
There comes a time we all gotta rise above
Look inside and redefine just what it is we want from love

Been there done that
Been there — still working my way back
Been there done that
So hard, hard to avoid the trap

And when you feel strong enough to face up to it
You're gonna do just fine

Wild Wild West Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
Out here on the pains tonight
The white man rules the game
Searching through the flames tonight
There's no one left to blame

This town just don't seem big enough
For the likes of the two of us
Here in the wild wild west

In the wild wild west my friend
Living in the wild wild west
In the wild wild west again

We left our bootprint on the shore
And rode off on toward sunset
We left the natives on the cutting room floor
And the shootings still not done yet

Lazy boy and channel three
Bourbon and contrition
Say a prayer for the NRA
And pass the ammunition

Mercy
Folly and frustration

Mercy
Too much information
Mercy
Desperate situation
Here in the wild wild west
In the wild wild west my friend

Wishing Well Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
In this land of accessories
The obsolescent sheen
Like so many fools before us
Lost in dreams

What's behind the curtain
The dinette or the stole
Such important choices
To satisfy the soul

Take it on down to the wishing well
Make a wish to stop your wishing
'Cause you just can't tell
Give it up

The power of suggestion
The tabloids and the tube
Muscles and money

Tits and gory
What's your story

Are we so unhappy
Being what we are
Sly told us a long time ago
Everybody is a star
Give it up

Thinkin' 'Bout You Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
Ooh ooh oooh oooh ooh
Thinkin' 'bout you
Oooh ooh ooh ooh
Thinkin' 'bout

I've been thinkin' bout you
Thinkin' 'bout all the things that couldn't come true
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
And how much I'll miss having you to talk to

Now that I'm on my own
I don't need to hold you
But I'd love to
There's beauty in monochrome
I promise not to linger
But somehow lately

I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Thinkin' 'bout all those things we put ourselves through
Incompatibly
Playing out our restless parts so crazy and free
Those nights when we talked til the sun
We had all the answers
We were dancers
Then time caught us both on the run
In our own directions
Headed for the moon

I know you
And I know that you think of me too
All is well
Honey but I'm just sittin' here thinkin' 'bout you
Thinkin' 'bout you

I've been thinkin' 'bout you
How you said you'd never change and hoping it's true
In your impetuous way
You brought out the kind of fire still with me today
When you told me you had to go
Off to chase the rainbow
Oh it hurt me so
The pain didn't kill me though
I will always be here
The soul outlives the heart

I know you
And I know that you think of me too
All is well
Honey but I'm just sittin' here thinkin' 'bout you
Thinkin' 'bout you

There was a time when our lives were a tangle
Between our hands and Jacob's ladder
Nothing mattered
Indelible and dear
Indelible and dear

I know you
And I know that you think of me too
All is well
Honey but I'm just sittin' here thinkin' 'bout you
I know you
And I know that you think of me too
All is well
Honey but I'm just sittin' here thinkin' 'bout you
I'm just sittin' here thinkin' 'bout you
I'm just sittin' here thinkin' 'bout you
Thinkin' 'bout you

I've been thinkin' 'bout you
I've been thinkin' 'bout

I've been thinkin' 'bout you
I've been thinkin' 'bout

I've been thinkin' 'bout

Jan's Tune Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
Lost in the future
Worried about the past

Willful and lazy
Pedaling nowhere fast

She works her wonders
Keeping me in today
Reaching through my darkness
Reminding me how to pay

And she says
Save your sadness for the bad times

Time is not your enemy
Save your sadness for the bad times

For now you are with me

Nothing is certain
Certainly nothing new
Hoping some light shines
On us before were through

She spends her heartbeats
Seeing the best in you
As I learn my mind the more I find
The things she says are true

You live gracefully
Having faith in me

She says

Save your sadness for the bad times

Time is not your enemy
Save your sadness for the bad times
For now

Save your sadness for the bad times
For now you are with me

Open Up My Window Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
Every night
I open up my window
Open up my window
And let your love come in

Every night that I'm away from you
This old bed seems way too big
And my dreams so small
Goin' through the motions
As I stare out from my room
I begin to realize
That we're sharin' the same moon

Lying here hugging my pillow in the dark
Dreaming of your comfort
Fightin' the lonely in my heart
And I thought I felt you touch me
In that old familiar way
When the wind came through the curtains
And I heard it call your name

Ooh the time goes draggin' by
Send my love across the sky
Maybe it's all that I can do

Baby until I'll be with you

I missed you girl more than you'll ever know
I kept a little vigil by my window
It's funny but it's true
Darlin' I did the same for you
Now no matter where we are
We can wish upon that star

Nature's Way Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
Is nature's way of telling you somethings wrong
It's nature's way of telling you in a song

Is nature's way of receiving you
Is nature's way of retrieving you
Is nature's way of telling you somethings wrong

Is nature's way of telling you on the breeze
It's nature's way of telling you - dying trees

It's nature's way of telling you to sow down
It's nature's way of telling you - look around

It's nature's way of finding you
It's nature's way of reminding you
It's nature's way of telling you somethings wrong

Uncharted Hearts Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
As the sun rises it soon compromises the safety of night
And two travelers in spite of themselves
Have to push on

Mornings remind them of things left behind them
One a good wife and the other a life with no name
So they push on

Over the hills and the pains they ride
Sharing the unwritten law they abide
Two uncharted hearts in the silence of their own flight

The journey they measure in danger and peasure
One likes to bluff and the other is tough on the girls
Still they push on

Roll the bones
Devil-may-care
No questions asked
Barely friends
Two solitaires
Needing each other out there

They build a good fire before they retire
Searching the flame for a moment of blameless repose
A way to push on
Lessons come hard on this brave terrain
They may run free but they're still in the rain
Two uncharted hearts in the silence of their own flight

Before I Go Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
I look out on the city lights
The guarded streets below
I marvel at my history
The things that I don't know
Just another question
A shadow on my soul
Will there be time
Will there be time before I go

I left home in a hurry
Off to see the world
Then I played some music
Then I loved a girl
Someone called me papa
Took my breath away
Would I be fine
Would I be alright with just today
Will there be time enough for me before I go

Love without rules
Love without end
Sending a lofty prayer for peace out on the wind
Breaking the curse
Breaking the chain.....
Making a promise I won't have to make again

I look out on the city lights
The stories that they tell
And wonder at my destiny
Beyond this carousel
Such a hollow question
A tether frayed by fear
Will there be time
Time to let go while I'm here
Will there be time enough for me so I'll know
Will there be time enough for me before I go

Love Is Calling Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Window
The journey has been long
A thousand memories strong
Faced with the night
Not caring who is right
Looking for the laughter that's been gone

How did we used to touch
Why do we think so much
We tire of the words of reflection
And long for affection
For the lovers' rush

Now that were here after all of these years
Love is calling
Now that were here so far and so near
Love is calling

Time and again we've tried
To let our feelings slide

Endless negotiations
And unmet expectations
Let's set it all aside

Now that were here and our motives are dear
Love is calling
Now that were here - plaintive, sincere
Love is calling

I have been lying still
I have been lying still
Dreaming of the truth

The journey has been long
The candor made us strong
Holding you tonight
In this familiar light
Can we take this sweetness to the dawn

Now that were here and the was disappear
Love is calling
Now that were here and there's no one to fear
Love is calling

Now that were here after all of the tears

Love is calling
Now that were here — were finally here
Love is calling

I have been lying still
I have been lying still
Dreaming of the truth

The journey has been long
The candor made us strong
Holding you tonight
In this familiar light
Can we take this sweetness to the dawn

Now that were here
And the was disappear
Love is calling
Now that were here
And there's no one to fear
Love is calling

Save Your Sadness Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS

Lost in the future
Worried about the past
Willful and lazy
Pedaling nowhere fast
She works her wonders
Keeping me in today
Reaching through my darkness
Reminding me how to play

Save your sadness for the bad times
Time is not your enemy
Save your sadness for the bad times
For now you are with me
Nothing is certain
Certainly nothing new
Hoping some light shines
On us before we are through
She spends her heartbeats
Seeing the best in you
As I learn my mind the more I find
The things she says are true

Save your sadness for the bad times

In A Red Room Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
Show me what you brought me
Silk and nothing more
Let the light discover you
Fall into the pillows
Let me watch you play
Sharing all your secrets
Take my breath away

Learn you like a blind man
Taste you soft and deep
Slow and gentle torture
Pray the lord your soul to keep
Take the night inside you
Let the fires dance
Planets spin their fortunes
Lost inside our trance

In a Red Room
Where love takes no prisoners
Ancient ballets of shadow perform
Here we lie in a sweet saturnalia
Here we will ride out the storm

On and on passion plays surround us
Toying with the histories of man
On and on, taboos will not confound us
Naked in a jungle by Gauguin

On and on passion plays surround us
Toying with the histories of man
On and on taboos will not confound us
I will look at you and understand

In a Red Room
Where love takes no prisoners
Ancient ballets of shadow perform
Here we lie in a sweet saturnalia
Here we will ride out the storm

In a Red Room
Where love takes no prisoners
We will drink from this cup til we die
Out of body in sweet saturnalia
Ever alive you and I

Walking In Avalon Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
Maybe I remind you of a lover you had
Maybe I'm crazy and I make you laugh
Maybe you thought I had a lot of cash
I don't care what it was
But I love what it does

I really dig that your apartment's a mess
I dig the way the sun shines through your dress
I dig your industrial shoes
You could say I'm kinky I guess
I can't believe my luck
You're such a fabulous, fabulous... mmmm

[Chorus:]
I'm walking in Avalon
And drunk on everything
A hero in Avalon
A man who would be king

It's cool be both like Bogart and Bacall
It's cool that I like John and you like Paul
Baby it's cool, forever cool
That your spirit is free
And still you've chosen me

[Chorus]

Remember those mushrooms down in Mexico
How we found our clothes I'll never know
Baby I hope I've loved you
The way that you have loved me
A toast to Guinevere
But still I'm thrilled with one more beer, baby

[Chorus]

We're walking in Avalon
Alive as anything
Two heroes in Avalon
So let the sirens sing

(He's walking, he's walking, he's walking)
Walking in Avalon
(He's walking, he's walking, he's walking)
I'm walking in Avalon, baby
(He's walking, he's walking, he's walking)
(He's walking, he's walking, he's walking)

Hunger Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
Out of this island
Far from the cage that most will know
Nothing was sacred
No other footprints in the snow
You took me down girl
Down to a place where I don't go
Now I hunger for you
Baby I hunger for you

The trace of you on my fingers
Laughs at the rain
Opiiate angel
The jones in my vein
Something so desperate inside
Somthing I just can't explain
Baby I hunger for you
Baby I hunger for you

Holding on to something pure
Holding on to something pure

Out of this island
The wind in my soul is never still
This weathered asylum
Just can't keep out the chill
I'm scared that I'll find you
I'm scared even more I never will
Baby I hunger for you
Baby I hunger for you

When She Smiles Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
Well they met in line at the checkout stand
Both unaware of what the gods had planned
She was lost in her Cosmo readin' about the stars
He was readin' about two-headed babies from Mars
When she reached for a Snickers she dropped her keys
And so began one of life's mysteries
He was a little old-fashioned and a little oversexed
He picked them up never guessing what would happen next

Then she smiled and said I like your tie
Yeah she smiled and told him that little white lie
And his soul lit up like the fourth of July
When she smiled

They made it to Starbuck's just before it closed
He pointed to the jar and said you want one of those
So over biscotti and double decafs
They shared their stories and they had some laughs
He got up his courage and asked her back to his place
Then he held his breath as he studied her face
She just sat and she stared and she said nothing at all
He knew he blew it and he waited for the ax to fall

Then she smiled and he knew he hadn't been wrong
Yeah she smiled and said what took you so long
And the world felt good like a rock and roll song
When she smiled

When she smiles I forget my lines
When she smiles man I'm on cloud nine
When she smiles oh it's time out of mind
When she smiles

Then she smiled and said where you been all my life
And she smiled when he asked her to be his wife
And the future had never looked so bright
When she smiled

I'm just diggin' her diggin' me diggin' her

When she smiles I forget my lines
When she smiles man I'm on cloud nine
When she smiles oh it's time out of mind
When she smiles

When she smiles I come all undone
When she smiles I'm the only one
When she smiles I'm a smoking gun
When she smiles

It's Always Something Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
It's always something
It's always something there to spoil your day
It's always something made out of nothing
But it gets its way

My AOL went down again
They're starving in Zaire
Close your eyes and count to ten
The sky is falling dear

It's always something
Something you're waiting that will make you whole
Some piece of nothing you need so badly
That you'd sell your soul

How many inches is your screen
Are the images too clear
Just channel surf the news away
The sky is falling
Your god is calling

I may not know it
I may not see
It's always something messin' with me
I may not like it but it will be
And if I fight it'll never be free

There's always something we could be learning
From those windmill fores
It's always someone you least expected
Who really knows

That there's no better time or place
To read between the lines on your face
Stop choking on that grain of salt
The sky's not falling
We've just been staling

I may not know it
I may not see
It's always something messin' with me
I may not like it but it will be
And if I fight it'll never be free

Dream Too Loud Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
While I wait for the world to end
Above mad hatter crowds
I have nothing but time to spend
Silhouetting clouds

Simple pleasures fr goodness sake
Babes in slumbers
Nature's palette an daybreak,
Paint by numbers
Tat tvram asi

Barefoot down at the fishin' hole
Minnows nibble my toes
Big rock holding a bamboo pole
Don't care how is goes

Origami my lists away
Bird and flower
On a river of wind they play
Peace and power
Tat tvram asi

I'm just looking to find some spring
Plant some seeds grow some wings
Don't tell me I dream too loud I know
(I know, I know)

Just imagine a smile on your face
Love and laughter
Compassion breaking our fall from grace
Ever after
Tat tvram asi

I'm just looking to take those wings
Fly to Memphis and meet the king
Don't tell me I dream too loud I know
(I know, I know)

I Know You Well Lyrics

Artist : CHRISTOPHER CROSS
Album : Red Room
A good fight half won
A good scotch half gone
And I'll never win Mr Congeniality
I once again
She acquiesced
And I got off on a technicality

I've always loved our little wars
Treaties we sign behind closed doors
I may concede but I will not bleed
I will not bleed

The James Deam the prom queen
Impractical fascination
Having its way again
She knows Astaire's got nothing on me
When I take her out tonight
When I take her out tonight

I've always loved the way you dance
How you defy our circumstance
There may not be more than see
More than I see
C'est la vie

I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well boy
And before the dawn comes you'll be gone

It's symbiotic
It's a sweet narcotic
Not a futile search for romantic perfection
That's too much trouble
So make mine a double
My head's a very scary neighborhood
Don´t wanna walk it alone

Thought I had something to day
Before you kissed my neck that way
I'll let it be
That works for me
So C'est la vie
C'est la vie

I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well (You know me well)
I know you well boy
And before the dawn comes you'll be gone

You know me well (I know you well)
You know me well (I know you well)
I know you well girl
And tomorrow we might just move on
