THE FOREIGNER SUITE

There are no words,
I can use
Because the meaning
still leaves for you to choose
And I couldn't stand
to let them be abused,
by you...you
 
Dreams I had just last night
Made me scared, white with fright
But I'm over to that Sunnyside Road
Over to that Sunnyside Road
 
Fortunes come and fortunes go
But things get better babe,
that's one thing I know
And I'm over to that Sunnyside Road
Over to that Sunnyside Road
 
I have a friend that I have met
Who gives me love and a certain respect
Just a little respect,
everybody needs just a little respect
That means you...you
you...you...you...yeah
you...you...you
 
And in a little while our love will spread
to you...you...you
Ain't no matter who inside this world
you know
There'll be someone who will love you
just for who you are,
really are
 
Truth
 
Dreams I had just last night
Made me worried to face up to the light
But I'm over to that Sunnyside Road
Over to that Sunnyside Road
 
Come on now it's freedom calling
Come on over and find yourself
Come on now it's freedom calling
Come on in and remind yourself
 
You can live in the largest house
And eleven apartments too
Run your own private plane
And a boat in Malibu
 
But 'till you know deep down
what inside you really need
Well I love you baby, Ooh my dear
And I think about you sometimes
But when you're with me
boy it chokes my mind
 
Come on now it's freedom calling
Come on over and find yourself
Come on now it's freedom calling
Come on in and remind yourself
 
Man must fight for freedom sure
that's what most other people would say
Look for a body to lead them
but there's too many to lead them away
Why wait until it's your time to die
before you learn what you were born to do
Come on now it's freedom calling
but there's only one freedom for you
 
Love, love boy...
Love, love boy...
Love, love boy...
Love, love boy...
And I can't wait to be with you
tomorrow night
Oh love
Love, love boy...(Love)
 
Won't you give me your word
that you won't laugh
Cos you've been a saving grace to me
And I'd hate to face a day
without you around
My life would be without sound
 
Love, love, love,
Love must've made you on a Sunday
Cause you taste to me as good as
God made honey taste babe
And the sky all glistens with gold
When you're talking to me
And the whirling wind turns to song
While it sets my soul free
Love, love, love,
Love must've made you on a Sunday
 
There are no words
I can use
Because the meaning
still leaves for you to choose
And I couldn't stand
to let them be abused,
by you...you
 
Oh darling, you see my face
But it's in my heart
that's where it's taking place
And I couldn't stand to let it go to waste
Can you...you
 
Oh love, sweet blue love
No man can ever get enough
But maybe one day
we'll all die in love
Will you...you
 
Oh love, sweet love, my...(love)
Sweet blue love
(No man can ever get enough
But maybe one day
we'll all die in love)
 
Oh babe, understand
Take my love
that's all I have at hand
Please say you will
Don't say you can't
Oh Will you?
Will you?
Will you?
 
The moment you walked inside my door
I knew' that I need not look no more
I've seen many other girls before,
ah but darling
Heaven must've programmed you
 
The moment you fell inside my dreams
I realised all I had not seen
I've seen many other girls before,
ah but darling
Heaven must've programmed you
Oh Will you?
Will you?
Will you?
 
Heaven must've programmed you
Oh darling look at me
I'm talking, I'm talking to you..you
Oh my love
Heaven must've programmed,
Oh programmed you

THE HURT

You say you want to seek the truth,
but it's hard to find
No one to help you,
your friends don't have the time
So you ride around in your car,
switch on the radio
You want to relate to
something you once read in a book
What kind of a way to
try to take a look
 
Until I got hurt,
I was looking, I was on my way
Until I got hurt, until I got hurt,
darling I painted my face grey
Until I got hurt, 'till I got hurt,
why didn't I, I didn't think of this
until I got hurt, 'till I got hurt
baby, I didn't know what love is
 
You say you want to learn to laugh
'cause music makes you cry
But the tears you shed
are only in your eye
So you turn to any phoney mouth
with a tale to tell
But he's just a hoaxer don't you know,
selling peace and religion
Between his jokes
and his karma chewing gum
 
Until I got hurt,
I was looking, I was the same as you
Until I got hurt, until I got hurt,
I did not know what to do
Until I got hurt, 'till I got hurt,
why didn't I, I didn't think of this
until I got hurt, 'Till I got hurt,
baby, I didn't know what love is
 
Young son,
don't let me down, young son
I'm trusting you to keep on,
never turn away now hold on,
never let go, now hold on
Turn your heart to the bright sun
Love will come your way
Cos 'till you make that final show
You'll never know what
love you've been missing, missing...
 
You say you want to seek the truth
but you work alone no one to help you
and nobody to push you on
So you sit at home drinking your wine,
television on
You wait for a miracle,
cos you say one day one'll come along
(But wishful thinking, boy)
any minute now you might be gone
I'd like to help you brother but
that would be wrong
 
Until I got hurt,
I was looking, I was on my way
Until I got hurt, until I got hurt,
darling I didn't know which way
Until I got hurt, 'till I got hurt,
why didn't I, I didn't think of this
until I got hurt 'till I got hurt,
baby, I didn't know what love is
 
Until I got hurt,
Oh I didn't know what love is

HOW MANY TIMES

How many times
must I get up
Look out and see the same old view
How many times
must I wear the same old things
and hear the same old things
that I do, I do
How many times
must I clean this face, my face
And how many times
must I shine my shoes, oh Lord
How many times
must I drink the same old drink
and dream the same old dreams
that I do
 
Because I, I know one thing
There ain't nothing
that could ever ease the pain
But for your line and mine
I want that loving again
 
How many times
must I pass your place, your place
And how many times
must I follow you, you
How many times
must I see the same old things
When all I should be seeing is you
 
Because I, I know one thing
There ain't nothing
that could ever ease the pain
But for your line and mine
I want that loving again, again
Must I follow you?
Must I wear the same old things?

LATER

Later, later, later
I want to talk it out with you
Try to get my message through
That's not all I want to do
Later (later)
 
Later,
Nada but sooner but later later later
(Nada but sooner but later later)
Later,
 
I want to feel your body close
From your head down to your toes
Maybe help you fold your clothes
Later
 
I want to spread the news,
don't want to soft soap you
We're meant to live and love
together girl... oh babe
There's nothing I can do,
oh darling I love you
There's no way you can stay home,
alone, baby
Later later later
 
I want to talk it out with you
Try to get my message through
That's not all I want to do
Later...
Later...
Pick it up later
Later
ect

100 I DREAM

They bring us up with horns
and hollywooden songs
Dead snakes and poisoned wisdoms
between our teeth
The evil that's been done
still is carrying on
And on this night
there'll be no peace
 
The old leaders' bones
still beat on our homes
They built our life before us,
we had no choice
The evil that's been done
still is carrying on
And when they're gone
we'll be the voice
 
Blue bird on a rock,
slow wind blowing soft
Across the bare face
of the sleeping lake
Rise up and be free,
voice whispered to me
And in this way
you will awake
 
Go climb up on a hill,
stand perfectly still
And silently soak up the day
Don't rush and don't you roam,
don't feel so alone
 
And in this way you will awake
And in this way you will awake
And this way you will awake
 
Pick up the pieces
you see before you
Don't let your weaknesses
destroy you
You know wherever you go
the world will follow
So let your reasons
be true to you
 
Stay close to your friends
up until the end
And when they know that
you feel the same way
Rise up and be free
and die happily
 
And in this way you will awake
And in this way you will (oh Lord) awake
And this way you will awake
Awake!
Come on, come on and awake
