JUST ANOTHER NIGHT

I remember standing here
right on this very same site
I was dying but for you
it was just another night
You once rocked me in your world
You bought me my first shoes
I was just another lonely child
Oh and you were much amused
 
So you took me and you dressed me well
All for your friends to see
Drained my body calmly till
there was no more left in me
Then you walked out and you cut me cold
Out on the road somewhere
Why it happened well I don't know
and I still have no idea
 
But everybody needs a friend sometimes
you need a little help
And who knows maybe one day you'll seek mine
only time will tell
You once held me in your arms
You made me feel so right
I was flying but for you
it was just another night
 
But everybody needs a little help
whether or not you think you really do
Everybody needs a little help
now the time has come for you
 
I ain't looking to fight no wars
No more talking trash
I'm not seeking any more pain
'cause I've had enough of that
But don't you worry it's alright
If you should come around
any night or any day
I won't ever let you down

DAYTIME

In the daytime time for celebration
No use looking down if it's over here
It's a world a new creation
And the golden light of the morning
makes it easy to comb your hair
And the love of a child
It's the time of the year
 
In the daytime you can move a mountain
with a blink of your eye
Now it's over here now it's over there
It's a world with no complications
And the curtains on the window
start blowing like your hair
And the love that I feel
'cause it's the time of the year
 
Mysterious moon found me crying in the dark
Heard my footsteps on the stairs
Mysterious moon found me crying
But the sun dried my tears
Showed he cares
 
In the daytime time for celebration
No use looking down children open your eyes
It's a world a whole nation
Now the white boats have landed
and the innocent are here
So dream for the child
'cause it's the time of the year

BAD BRAKES

Bad brakes whole car shakes
Looks like I'm heading for a breakdown
Black smoke, engine beginning to choke
I must be heading for a breakdown
 
I pulled up for a mouth of coca-cola
down at Samuel's cafe
Saw a little spanish lady coming over
Said "lady are you going my way?"
She said "o-lay"
 
Bad brakes carburettor shakes
Looks like you're heading for a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
We must be heading for a breakdown
 
We hit the road at 90 miles an hour
heading for 'Frisco Bay
She said "senor you got cop on your shoulder"
I said "oh now we'd better not stay
We got to get away with our
Bad brakes carburettor shakes
Looks like we're heading for a breakdown"
 
He was catching up up nose right inside our mirror
when the motor blowed
We climbed out and she began to shiver
Oh no sir please let us go
He said "don't you know you got"
 
Bad brakes carburretor shakes
Looks like you bought yourself a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
And you've got yourself a breakdown"
 
Bad brakes engine beginning to shake
Looks like we've got ourselves a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
We got ourselves a breakdown

RANDY

Oh Randy if they knew
I think they'd take me away
Just for loving you you
All alone in my own quiet way
cause that's the way that I want it
 
Wish I could see you now
You and your cherry black eyes
My heart would never lie down down
'cause that's the way my arrow flies
And that's the way that I want it
 
You never said it would rain
You only told me that the sun would come again
You never said it would rain
Oh Randy if you did
It wouldn't mean a thing
It wouldn't hurt me a bit
'cause only you can break my wings
And that's the way that I want it
 
You drew my face in the sand
And ever since that day you made me what I am
You drew my face in the sand
Oh Randy if I could
There's nothing I wouldn't give
To live with you for good
'cause that's the way I'd like to live
And that's the way that I want it
 
Randy oh my Randy
Randy oh my Randy
Randy oh my Randy

LAST LOVE SONG

If you don't love me
Please don't treat me this way
'Cause I can't stand it
I see our love slipping away
Did you think you could just put me down
like a worn out shoe
'Cause if you don't want me
Maybe I don't want you
 
If you don't need me
Don't leave me out in the cold
Eyes drifting by me
Like somebody you don't know
Did you think that you could just walk away
Anytime you wanted to
'Cause if you don't love me
Maybe I don't love you
 
Did you think that you could just put me down
for somebody new
'Cause nobody can love you girl like I do
Every little bird in the sky
Would sing a song of love
If you would just take me back
Come on open up your heart again
let me in baby baby
 
If you don't love me
Stop fooling yourself
No more acting
I know your show too well
Did you think that you could just shake my hand
With a how d'y'do
'Cause if you don't want me
Maybe I don't want you
 
Oh and as you go through life
It's the little things that come back again
If you came back again
You know I'd give my loving to you

FATHER

Father oh Father
Hear me if you can
Is it true what they say
that life is a dream
I don't understand
The things that make rain in my eyes
Are they real or are they lies
 
You know I hear so much about you now
I'd give anything
To go on a little boat with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a little boat with you
 
Father oh Father
Guide me if you can
Or give me the chance to follow you home
I am your son but I wish I knew you
When you were young
Were you lonely as a boy
 
You know I'd give so much to see you now
I'd go anywhere
Pick a little stick and walk with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a short walk with you
 
Father oh Father
You give me just a little hope
I feel something out there reaching for me
Well here I am
Won't you take me with you
Out of this maze
And away from this place
 
Because it gets so cold and lonely here
I'll do anything
To sit on a little rock with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a small rock with you
 
Show me show me show me the way
Before they grind me down
And bleach me grey
Send me power not to be afraid
And when I close my eyes
Let me see you once in the light
 
Father oh Father
Hear me if you can
Is it true what they say
That life is a dream

NEW YORK TIMES

New York poor New York
New York poor New York
 
Cars choking your child to death
But you don't wanna see
'Cause you only think about yourself
How blind can you be
 
New York poor New York
Sniper on the rooftop New York
New York poor New York
Not fit for a dog in New York
 
Everybody bites on the Big Apple
Leave the hungry in tears
But no one gives a damn no one really cares
How they feel they're just paper people not real
 
You need a gun to walk into New York
 
Now you're broke and you're out on a ledge
Who can help you this time
Now you're down to your very last cent
still you're askin' me who was your friend
I was your friend
 
New York poor New York
Who turned the lights out in New York
New York poor New York
Just another blackout in New York
 
Girl dead on the 26th floor
But no one knew her name
Found her body behind the door
Too young for the game
 
New York poor New York
Devils in the subway New York
New York poor New York
New York poor New York
Talkin talkin talkin — watch out
Harlem touching midtown New York
New York poor New York
Talkin 'bout New York New York
Money's getting tighter New York
They're burning the bridges to New York

NEVER

I know there'll be another time
There's going to be another moment
There'll never be another you
There's going to be another story
There's so much left for you to do love
 
There'll never be another you
There's going to be another spring
And it won't always be winter
And it'll always be spring
There's going to be another kingdom
There's so much left for you to know love
 
There'll never be another you
I will be there when you need me
Darling you'll Just have to say
But you know I'll be there anyway
You've got to have faith in me darling
Got to have faith in yourself
Faith in your wealth
 
I know there'll be another spring
And it won't always be winter
And it'll always be spring
There's going to be another story
There's so much left for you to know love
There'll never be another you
There'll never be another you
There'll never be another you love
