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 downback to top
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 yearback to top
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 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 carburettor 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 breakdownback to top
Randy
Oh randy if they knew
I think they'd take me sway
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
Ause 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 randyback to top
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 youback to top
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
Heal me if you can
Is it true what they say
That life is a dreamback to top
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 yorkback to top
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
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
Gut 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 loveback to top
