ANOTHER TEAR FALLS

 

Now and then I see you passing by

And for a while I don't begin to cry

But just when I think I'm all cried out

Another tear falls, another tear falls

And then I know you are still here in my heart

You are still here in my broken heart

 

Every time I go with someone new

I tell myself I've gotten over you

But just when I think I'm all cried out

Another tear falls, another tear falls

And then I know you are still here in my heart

You are still here in my broken heart

 

 

SADDEST NIGHT IN THE WORLD

 

On the saddest night in the world, I lost my way, I lost a girl

And the rain came down in the streets, blinding the way, I wait for day

All night long I've been wondering how I'll carry on

Without you all the things that ever mattered all fell through

 

On the saddest night in the world, shop window girl smiled through the rain

And the wet, grey figure called me looks for the man he used to be

Out of love, you went running with your head held high

I said that it wouldn't matter, now I feel I wanna die

And the rain-drenched old lady selling flowers in the street

Knows you're gone

 

IN MY ROOM   

 

In my room, way at the end of the hall

I sit and stare at the wall

Thinking how lonesome I've grown

All alone in my room

 

In my room, where every night is the same

I play a dangerous game

I keep pretending she's late

And I sit, and I wait

 

Over there is the picture we took when I made her my bride

Over there is the chair where I held her whenever she cried

Over there by the window the flowers she left have all died

 

In my room, way at the end of the hall

I sit and stare at the wall

Thinking how lonely I've grown

All alone in my room

 

 

SATURDAY'S CHILD

 

Don't stop, don't turn around

It's just a lonely clown who keeps calling

But you've grown quite out of love with him

The city's endless nights

The in-crowd's gay young faces

Have been washed away by too many

Through the night and day

Saturday's child who used to say

That she could dance the world away

Saturday's child just hangs her head

And cries today

 

How could you be so blind

Just waking up to find

What a fool you were

Cause you let him break your heart

You turn, you break, you bend

You're left without a friend

When you seemed to have so many

At the start

Saturday's child who used to say

That she could dance the world away

Saturday's child just hangs her head

And cries today

 

Saturday's child who used to say

That she could dance the world away

Saturday's child just hangs her head

And cries today

 

Saturday's child who used to say

That she could dance the world away

Saturday's child just hangs her head

And cries today

 

Saturday's child who used to say

Saturday's child

 

 

JUST FOR A THRILL

 

Just for a thrill, you changed the sunshine to rain

And for a thrill, you filled my heart with pain

To me you were my pride and joy

But to you I was merely a toy

A plaything you could toss around at will

 

Just for a thrill, you made my life one sad song

Just for a thrill, you just led me along

Although you're free and having your fun

To me you're still the only one

Cause you made my heart stand still

Just for a thrill

 

Although you're free and having your fun

To me you're still the only one

Cause you made my heart stand still

Just for a thrill

 

Baby you made my heart stand still

Just for a thrill

 

HURTING EACH OTHER   

 

No one in the world ever had a love as sweet as my love

Cause nowhere in the world could there be a girl as true as you girl

All my love I give gladly to you

All your love you give gladly to me

Tell me why then, oh why should it be

That we go on hurting each other

We go on hurting each other

Making each other cry

Hurting each other

Without ever knowing why

 

Closer than the leaves on a weeping willow baby, we are

And closer dear are we than the simple letters A and B are

All my life I could love only you

All your life you could love only me

Tell me why then, oh why should it be

That we go on hurting each other

We go on hurting each other

Making each other cry

Hurting each other

Without ever knowing why

 

Can't we stop hurting each other

Gotta stop hurting each other

Making each other cry

Breaking each other's heart

Tearing each other apart

 

Can't we stop hurting each other

Gotta stop hurting each other

Making each other cry

Breaking each other's heart

Tearing each other apart

 

 

OLD FOLKS

 

Everyone knows him as old folks

Like the seasons he'll come and he'll go

Just as free as a bird

And as good as his word

That's why everybody loves him so

 

Always leaving his spoon in his coffee

Tucks his napkin up under his chin

And that yellowed cow pie is so mellow it's ripe

But you needn't be ashamed of him

 

Every Friday he'll go fishing

Down on his favourite lake

But he only hooks a perch or two

The whale got away

It looks like we warm up the steak

 

Some day there'll be no more old folks

What a lonesome old town this will be

Children's voices at play will be still for a day

The day they take the old folks away

 

 

SUMMERTIME

 

Summertime and the living is easy

Fish are jumping and the cotton is high

Well, your daddy's rich

And your ma is good looking

So hush, little baby, don't you cry

 

One of these mornings

You're gonna rise up singing

You're gonna spread your wings

And you'll take to the sky

 

But until that moment

There ain't nothing gonna harm you

With daddy and mammy standing by

 

One of these mornings

You're gonna rise up singing

And I know, you'll spread your wings

And you'll take to the sky

Oh yeah

 

Yeah, until that moment

There ain't nothing, no nothing's gonna harm you

With daddy and mammy standing by

 

Summertime

Summertime

Summertime

Summertime

 

 

PEOPLE GET READY

 

People get ready, there's a train a-coming

Don't need no baggage, you just get on board

All you need is faith to hear the diesels humming

Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

 

People get ready for the train to Jordan

Picking up passengers coast to coast

Faith is the key, open the doors and board her

There's room for all among those loved the most

 

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner

Who would turn on his kind just to save his own

Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner

For there's no place to hide against the kingdom's throne

 

So people get ready, there's a train a-coming

You don't need no baggage, you just get on board

All you need is faith to hear the diesels humming

Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

 

 

I CAN SEE IT NOW

 

Another dawn and still a tear hangs on

A sleepless night still didn't make things right

Maybe today our lonesome man

Is gonna find that dream again

He lost somehow

Oh I can see it now

 

She couldn't stay, you threw her love away

The lark has flown, but you still hear her song

That worn out wish is overdue

But how much time can you allow

To make it come true

I can see it now

 

She couldn't stay, you threw her love away

The lark has flown, but you still hear her song

That worn out wish is overdue

But how much time can you allow

To make it come true

I can see it now

 

WHERE'S THE GIRL   

 

Where's the girl

The canary stopped singing

The moment she walked out the door

 

Where's the girl

The flowers are dying

Cause nobody cares anymore

The canary and the poor, lonely flowers

Miss her so very much

You can tell, this apartment and I

Are in need of a woman's touch

 

On the floor there is one nylon stocking

And I'm leaving it there where it lies

Whoh, who'd have thought

That one nylon stocking

Could ever bring tears to these eyes

 

Where's the girl who used to fix me my coffee

And butter up my toast

Lord, how I miss the coffee taste of her kiss

But Lord, what I miss the most

Is the girl

 

Here's a dresser drawer that's filled with old hairpins

Lipstick, and Lord knows what

And here's a photograph taken last summer

And a bottle of perfume, but

Where's the girl

Where's the girl

Where's the girl

Oh, I need the girl

 

 

LIVING ABOVE YOUR HEAD

 

Seems so strange, you putting me through changes

I can't believe that you're the same sweet girl

That I once knew

And baby, the changes coming on

Don't look too good

Too good on you

 

It seems so strange, you putting me through changes

Baby, you started doing things you should not be doing

Living above your head, girl

Coming on way too strong

Living above your head, girl

Something has got to go wrong

 

Baby, don't think that I don't know

You're going out with other guys

And baby, though it hurts me so

You know that I'm so hypnotized

So let's not fight

Kill all the love inside of me

Baby, you started doing things you should not be doing

Living above your head, girl

Coming on way too strong

Living above your head, girl

Something has got to go wrong

 

Living above your head, girl

Coming on way too strong

Living above your head, girl

Something has got to go wrong

With our love

With our love

Living above your head

Living above your head

Living above your head

Living above your head

Living above your head

 

 

TAKE IT LIKE A MAN

 

Take it like a man, don't cry, don't cry

Take it like a man, hold your head up high

Sure she broke your heart when she said goodbye

But you, you gotta take it like a man

 

Get up on your feet, it's way past dawn

Get up on your feet, come on, come on

Everything's the same, except she's gone

But you, you gotta take it like a man

 

You're gonna be fine, just don't think about her

Sun's gonna shine, with or without her

It's only gonna hurt for just a little while

Go on, change your shirt, and put on a smile

Don't say that you can't, cause you can, you can

Come on buddy, take it like a man

 

Oh come on, come on, and take it like a man

Hold your head up high, man don't stand there and cry

You gotta be a man my friend

Do you understand, I believe you can

My, my friend

 

NO SAD SONGS FOR ME   

 

No sad songs for me

Soon our love will be

Just a memory

It's all over

 

I walk around imagining

The way you'll say goodbye

And when you try to tell me

I just hope that I won't cry

 

No sad songs for me

Soon our love will be

Just a memory

It's all over

 

The glow has gone forever

Our dreams have turned to dust

I don't know how I can go on

And yet I know I must

 

No sad songs for me

Soon our love will be

Just a memory

It's all over

 

It breaks my heart to feel this way

Although I try to smile

To think I'll be alone again

In just a little while

 

No sad songs for me

Soon our love will be

Just a memory

It's all over

It's all over

It's all over

 

 

DEADLIER THAN THE MALE

 

She whispers oh such pretty lies

Don't believe her

For when you look into her eyes

Love just isn't there

 

Brother beware

Take care, my brother, take care

For the female of the species is deadlier than the male

 

The smile that made a dream begin

Clouds your vision

It's just the shadow of a dream

That you're living in

 

She never cared

Beware, my brother, beware

For the female of the species is deadlier than the male

 

Memories of kisses on a summer's day

That's all she left you when she went away

Now you pay

By walking streets you'll never know

When the night comes

Sitting in places that you go

Hoping she'll be there

 

Brother beware

Take care, my brother, take care

For the female of the species is deadlier than the male

 

 

ARCHANGEL

 

Silence, to hear once more

Her footsteps down the shadowed corridor

Frightened, you're overdue

The darkest day goes on until it's blessed by you

 

Archangel rides in on the moon

Just to save me from this tomb

I'll cry the tears of time all day

Till she wipes them all away

 

Outside my window, on silver trumpets, children play

I stand here watching the dying of an ageless day

Dismiss young couples who go home to their knowing beds

And watch the rooftops, where silent shadows slowly tread

 

Sleeping their dreamless sleep

They'll never know the secrets this room keeps

They'll wake when I'm born again

The rent's been paid, so hurry, carry me away

 

Archangel rides in on the moon

Just to save me from this tomb

I'll cry the tears of time all day

Till she wipes them all away

 

 

SUNNY

 

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain

Sunny, you smiled at me and really you eased the pain

All the dark days are gone, and the bright days are here

My sunny one shines so sincere

Sunny one so true, I love you

 

Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet

Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way

You gave to me your all and all

Now I feel ten feet tall

Sunny one so true, I love you

 

Sunny, thank you for the truth you've let me see

Sunny, thank you for the facts from A to Z

My life was torn like the wind-blown sand

Then a rock was formed when you held my hand

Sunny one so true, I love you

 

Sunny, thank you for that smile upon your face

Sunny, thank you for that gleam that flows with grace

You're my spark of a nature's fire

You're my sweet, complete desire

Sunny one so true, I love you

 

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain

Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain

 

All the dark days are gone, the bright days are here

My sunny one shines so sincere

Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny one so true, I love you

 

 

COME RAIN OR COME SHINE

 

I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you

Come rain or come shine

High as a mountain and deep as a river

Come rain or come shine

 

I guess when you met me it was just one of those things

But don't ever bet me, cause I'm gonna be true

Mmmm, if you let me

 

You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me

Come rain or come shine

Happy together, unhappy together

And won't it be fine

 

Days may be cloudy or sunny

We're in or we're out of the money

I'm with you always

I'm with you rain or shine

 

I'm with you always

I'm with you rain or shine

 

 

THE GENTLE RAIN

 

We both are lost and alone in the world

Walk with me in the gentle rain

 

Don't be afraid, I've a hand for your hand

And I will be your world for a while

 

I feel your tears as they roll down your face

They are warm like the gentle rain

 

Come little one, you've got me in the world

And our love will be sweet, very sad, very sweet

Like the gentle rain

Like the gentle rain

Like the gentle rain

 

 

MRS MURPHY

 

"Hello Mrs Murphy, that's a lovely dress you're wearing, is it new?"

"Why thank you Mr Wilson, but I've had this same old dress about a year or two"

 

Upstairs in bed the tall boy stretched just like a cat

Put his hand behind his head and lay there thinking of a dream that he had

 

"I hear that the Johnson's had a baby, Mrs Murphy, is that true?"

"Why yes, but it's rumoured that the little tot's real daddy lives in twenty two"

 

In twenty two the boy lay whistling out of tune

Riding on to see, dreaming of a thousand things he'd like to be

 

"Poor Mr Johnson, being married to a wife who should be caged"

"It's the child who will suffer, and to think that that young man is less than half her age"

 

Upstairs he sits, he hears a knock and nothing more

"Come on in, you're late, well don't just stand there Mrs Johnson, close the door"

 

 

STAY WITH ME BABY

 

Where did you go when things went wrong, baby

Who did you run to, and find a shoulder to lay your head upon

Baby, wasn't I there, didn't I take good care of you

No, no, I can't believe you'd really leave

Stay with me baby

Stay with me baby

Stay with me baby

I can't go on, no, no, no

 

Who did you touch when you needed tenderness

I gave you so much and in return I found happiness

Baby, what did I do, maybe I was too good, just too good for you

No, no, I can't believe you'd really leave

Stay with me baby

Stay with me baby

Stay with me baby

 

Remember, you said you'd always gonna need me

Remember, you said you'd never ever leave me

Remember, remember, I'm asking you, begging you

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, please

Stay with me baby

Stay with me baby

Stay with me baby

I can't go on, no, no, no

 

Stay with me, stay with me baby

Stay with me, stay with me baby

Stay with me, stay with me baby

Stay with me, stay with me baby

 

 

TURN OUT THE MOON(ALTERNATIVE VERSION)

 

When there's no place you can turn to

And your pride is a burden you bear

A beginning with no ending

Time is dying, and nobody cares

Nobody dares

Turn out the moon and the stars in the sky

For it's ended too soon

I'm through living a life without you

 

Happy people in black steeples

Make me need you a little bit more

Starless mornings find me older

Waiting for you to walk through the door

Just like before

Turn out the moon and the stars in the sky

For it's ended too soon

I'm through living a life without you

 

The torch is dying, I've carried it for too long, baby

I'll tear you from me, any way I have to, baby

Turn out the moon and the stars in the sky

For it's ended too soon

I'm through living a life without you

 

(Turn out the moon, and the stars in the sky)

Gotta turn out the moon

(Turn out the moon, and the stars in the sky)

Babe, I tell ya baby, it's ended, ended way too soon

(Turn out the moon and the stars in the sky)

Gotta turn out the moon

(Turn out the moon and the stars in the sky)

Baby, baby, baby, it's ended too soon

 

WALKING IN THE RAIN   

 

I want her, and I need her, and someday, some way, whoh, whoh, oh, I'll meet her

She'll be kind of shy, and real good-looking too

And I'll be certain she's the one by the things she likes to do

Like walking in the rain

(Like walking in the rain)

And wishing on the stars up above

(And wishing on the stars)

And being so in love

 

When she's near me I'll kiss her

And when she leaves me, whoh, whoh, oh, I'm gonna miss her

Though sometimes we'll fight, but I won't really care

Cause I know it's gonna be all right

Cause we've got so much, so much we share

Like walking in the rain

(Like walking in the rain)

And wishing on the stars up above

(And wishing on the stars)

And being so in love

 

(Mandy)

She'll never do

(Bonnie)

No, it isn't her too, they would never

No they'd never, ever, ever know

Walking in the rain

(Like walking in the rain)

And wishing on the stars up above

And being so in love

 

Whoh, whoh, whoh, whoh

I really need her, whoh, whoh, whoh

Someday I'll find her, whoh, whoh, whoh

 

 

BABY MAKE IT THE LAST TIME

 

Baby make it the last time, don't walk out on me

Baby make it the last time you let me down, you know I need you

Each time you go and leave me here crying

You walk on my dreams and time holds me dying

Baby make it the last time, don't walk out on me

Baby make it the last time you let me down, you know I need you

 

What would I be in a world without you close to me

I couldn't go on, you're still so much a part of me

Baby make it the last time, don't walk out on me

Baby make it the last time you let me down, you know I need you

 

Tomorrow is another day, I'll be a new man

I'll be the man you need today, can't you understand, can't you understand

 

Don't turn away, I'm begging you, you gotta stay

These eyes full of tears, won't help me through the love-lost years

Baby make it the last time, don't walk out on me

Baby make it the last time you let me down, you know I need you

Baby make it the last time, don't walk out on me

Baby make it the last time you let me down, you know I need you

Baby make it the last time

 

ME ABOUT YOU   

 

Perhaps another time, perhaps another place, could have eased my mind

I would never seen your face or heard about you

But now I call my name in your reality

Though it's hard to explain, I'll never be without you

 

I know nothing about you

But I know I don't doubt your love, and I know that it's real

By God above, I know how I feel about you

 

Got a hand full of gold and a pocketful of dreams

And a heart full of love, and I know what it means to be without you

Come sit by my side and share with me

All the feelings inside and the things you see about you

 

I know nothing about you

But I know I don't doubt your love, and I know that it's real

By God above, I know how I feel about you

 

I know nothing about you

But I know I don't doubt your love, and I know that it's real

By God above, I know how I feel about you
