Music
Yesterday I was on the edge
Hoping everything was going to work itself out
A good honest man doing the work of god
Trying to make things better for him
A lover of life in a school for fools
Trying to find another way to survive

New music, music, new music
Sweet music can lighten us
Can brighten the world, can save us

My friend said well, I think I found a way
To help make myself richer
I said don't you know , well, it wont be too long before
The bad ol devil will get you back
Back.. I said put back your heart and sing , sing while
You know you're still living
Sing, sing, sing , while you know theres still

Chorus

Take a look at the world
Think about how it will end
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined the band
Think about the light in your eyes
Think about what you should know
Thered be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the show oh oh

Think about the light in your eyes
Think about what you should know
Thered be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the show
In the show

Chorusback to top
Oh Very Young
Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
They will vanish away like your daddy's best jeans
Denim blue fading up to the sky
And though you want them to last forever
You know they never will
You know they never will
And the patches make the goodbye harder still

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
There'll never be a better chance to change your mind
And if you want this world to see a better day
Will you carry the words of love with you
Will you ride the great white bird into heaven
And though you want to last forever
You know you never will
You know you never will
And the goodbye makes the journey harder still

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
You're only dancing on this earth for a short while
Oh very young
What will you leave us this timeback to top
Sun/C79
Sun is the reason
And the world it will bloom
Cause sun lights the sky
And the sun lights the moon

Sun is the reason
All the happy trees are green
Then who can explain
The light in your dream

Sit you down
Sit you down young gentlemen
Theres something I want you to know
You keep on asking me
You keep on asking me why
Why are we here ?
It started a long time ago
Me & your mum on the night
Yeh Yeh Yeh ..we met

I was on the road again
She was in C79
Ill never never forget
Ill never forget that night no..

We met in a back road
Behind the stage
She had the best figure by far
Huh a thousand hours Ive looked at her eyes but I
Still don't know what colour they are
Me & your mum on the night
Oh Lord. We met

I was on the road again
She was in C79
She was a junkie then
And I was having a good time
Back on the road again

Oh momma I was on the road again
Back in suite 79
Ill never never forget
Ill never forget that time
Back on the road again
Oh Im travelling that line
I was a pop star then
Im still having a good timeback to top
Ghost Town
Come on lets go down
Everybody's waiting for us
Down at the ghost town
Bill bailey said he'd be around
If mrs. g. robinson would just put
That bad havana down

Lovely queen anne boleyn
Learning new tricks from the great houdini. wo wo
Now thats the way she's gonna make it wo wo

Come on
Come on lets go down
Everybodys waiting for us
Down at the boom town
O. redding & washington
Chico & harpo & karl are
In the kitchen with mum

Buster keaton & king tut
Are waiting for disney to wake up wo wo
Now thats the way
No that ain't the way he's gonna make itback to top
Jesus
They used to call him jesus
Long time ago
They're still calling him jesus
Don't you know
They crossed the wood and hanged him
A long time ago
They still misunderstand him
Those who don't know
And in the evening his love will lead the blind
In every secret corner there in your mind

They called him gautama buddha
Oh long time ago
He turned the world to order
Don't you know
He used to sit knowing
Oh long time ago
Where you and me were going
And in the evening his love will lead the blindback to top

Dont keep me watching your charms all the while
Cause as all the wise men say
Grab it if it comes your way
Im ready oh

Ready to love

You make me feel things I've never felt before
Help my baby eyes and open up the door
You make me real to everyone and everyday i

Its no more an illusion than I can say

I love I love I'm ready to love yes
I love I love I'm ready to love yeah
I love I love I'm ready
Ready ready ready to loveback to top
King of Trees
He was the king of trees
Keeper of the leaves
A deep green God of young
Love stained memory
We used to meet by him
Far from the hustling town
I loved you
Now they've come to cut you down
..down

He was the guardian of days
We held the same
Beneath the shade he gave
Shelter from the rain
Oh lord how it's empty now
With nothing save the breeze
Now they've come to burn the leaves
Don't burn the leaves

And if my mind breaks up
In all so many ways
I know the meaning of
The words I love you
And if my body falls inside
An early grave
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
So slowly as I roll
Down the track

The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
The forest and the evergreens
Are coming to take me back
Please take me back

He was the king of trees
Keeper of the glades
The way he enchanted my life
Makes me so amazed
We used to meet by him
Many years ago
I love you
Now they've come to lay the road
Don't lay the roadback to top
A Bad Penny
Oh don't say those same idle lies
I've heard them before
This fool who left his heart on an early train
Won't buy no more

Oh no don't use
Those same weeping eyes
I'll wipe them no more
I didnt want to have to be cruel
But the truth must be said
And you ain't heard enough

Oh it was not so long ago
Since you wandered out of here
To become a silver model
Of a city on the air
So don't choke me with your lies
Because this man has open eyes
And I can see
I can see I can tell

I had it enough
All those sneaky bars and smart parties
Had enough
All those sweet friends and lovers
I've I've had enough
All those lonely rooms
And blank faces
Had enough
And I want you I want you no more
I want you I want you no more

Oh don't say those same idle lies
I've heard them before
This fool who left his heart on an early train
Won't buy no moreback to top
Home in the Sky
Come the morning ill be far from here
Slowly rising in another sphere

Old world goodbye cause I'll be
Home in the sky in the morning bye bye

Stars are crying over my old house
But I'm still breathing happy above the clouds

Home
Home at last because
All of the bad times are past

Music is a lady that I still love
Cause she gives me the air that I breathe

Music is a lady that I still need
Cause she brings me the food that I eat

Come the morning ill be far from here
Slowly rising in another sphere
Home, world goodbye
Cause ill be home in the sky in the morning
