LYRICS

Tell all the people that you see,
Follow me,
Follow me down,

Tell all the people that you see,
Set them free,
Follow me down,

You tell 'em they don't have to run,
We're gonna pick up everyone,
C'mon take me by my hand,
Gonna bury all our troubles in the sand,
Oh yeah

Can't you see the wonder at your feet,
Your life's complete,
Follow me down,

Can't you see me growing,
Get your guns,
The time has come,
To follow me down,

Follow me across the sea where milking babies seem to be,
Overflowing? revelry with the ones that set them free,
Tell all the people that you see,
It's just me
Follow me down

(guitar solo)

Tell all the people that you see,
Follow me,
Follow me down,

Tell all the people that you see,
Will be free
Follow me down,

Tell all the people that you see,
It's just me,
Follow me down,

Tell all the people that you see,
Follow me,
You gotta follow me down,

Tell all the people that you see,
Will be free,
Follow me down,

Tell all the people you see,
Will be free,
Gotta follow me down...

Uncharacteristic of the Morrison years, but still a great song.back to top
Touch Me
Doors - Touch Me




Come on come on come on come on now touch me babe
Cant you see that I am not afraid
what was that promise that you made?
Why wont you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?

Now i'm gonna love you until the heavens start the rain
I'm gonna love you until the stars fall from the sky
For you and I

Come on come on come on come on now touch me babe
Cant you see that I am not afraid
What was that promise that you made?
Why wont you tell me what she said
What was that promise that you made

I'm gonna love you until the heavens start the rain
I'm gonna love you until the stars fall from the sky
For you and I

I'm gonna love you until heavens start the rain
I'm gonna love you until the stars fall from the sky
For you and I!back to top

Written by Jim Morrison

There will never be, another one like you
There will never be, another one who can
Do the things you do, oh
Will you give another chance?,
Will you try, little try?
Please stop and you remember,
We were together, anyway, all right

And if you have a certain evenin',
You could lend to me
I'd give it all right back to you,
A how it has to be with you
I know your moves and your mind
And your mind
And your mind
And your mind
And your mind
And your mind
And your mind

Will you stop and think and wonder?
Just what you'll see
Out on the train yard
Nursin' penitentiary
It's gone, I cry out long
(Go head, brother)

Did you stop it to consider?, How it will feel
Cold, grinded grizzly bear jaws,
Hot on your heels
Do you often stop and whisper?
It's Saturday's shore
The whole world's a savior
Who could ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, Ask for more?
Do you remember?
Will you stop?, Will you stop?, The pain

And there will never be
Another one like you
There will never be
Another one who can
Do the things you do, oh
Will you give another chance?
Will you try, little try?
Please stop and you remember
We were together, anyway, all right

How you must of think and wondered
How I must feel
Out on the meadows
While you run the field
I'm alone for you
And I cry
The sweat, look at it, Optical promise
Heh, heh, heh, You'll be dead and in hell
Before I'm born, Sure thing
Brides maid, The only solution
Isn't it amazing?back to top

Easy Ride

It will be
An easy ride, all right

Easy ride, ok

The mask that you wore
My fingers would explore
Costume of control
Excitement soon unfolds

And I know
It will be
Easy ride, yeah
Joy, for vaguely
Which' your pride
Which' your pride, yeah

Black polished stone
Black polished stone

The mask that you wore
My fingers would explore
Costume of control
Excitement soon unfolds, hey

Call the queen, now
Be my bride
Ragin' darkness
By my side
Seize the summer
In your pride
Take the winter
In your stride

Let's ride, yeah

Wild Child
All right

Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face

Natural child, terrible child
Not your mother's or your father's child
Your our child, screamin' wild

An ancient rulage of grains
And the trees of the night
Ha, ha, ha, ha

With hunger at her heels
Freedom in her eyes
She dances on her knees
Pirate prince at her side
Stirrin' into a hollow idols eyes

Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face
Your cool face
Your cool face

Do you remember when we were in Africa?back to top
Wishful Sinful
Wishful crystal
Water covers everything in blue
Coolin' water

Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Can't escape the blue

Magic risin'
Sun is shinin' deep beneath the sea
But not enough for you and me and sunshine
Love to hear the wind cry

Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came

Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Can't escape the blue

Love to hear the wind cry
Love to hear you cry, yeah, yeahback to top
The Soft Parade
When I was back there in seminary school
There was a person there
Who put forth the proposition
That you can petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer
You cannot petition the lord with prayer!

Can you give me sanctuary
I must find a place to hide
A place for me to hide

Can you find me soft asylum
I can't make it anymore
The Man is at the door

Peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy
Champion sax and a girl named Sandy
There's only four ways to get unraveled
One is to sleep and the other is travel, da da
One is a bandit up in the hills
One is to love your neighbor 'till
His wife gets home

Catacombs
Nursery bones
Winter women
Growing stones
Carrying babies
To the river

Streets and shoes
Avenues
Leather riders
Selling news
The monk bought lunch

Ha ha, he bought a little
Yes, he did
Woo!
This is the best part of the trip
This is the trip, the best part
I really like
What'd he say?
Yeah!
Yeah, right!
Pretty good, huh
Huh!
Yeah, I'm proud to be a part of this number

Successful hills are here to stay
Everything must be this way
Gentle streets where people play
Welcome to the Soft Parade

All our lives we sweat and save
Building for a shallow grave
Must be something else we say
Somehow to defend this place
Everything must be this way
Everything must be this way, yeah

The Soft Parade has now begun
Listen to the engines hum
People out to have some fun
A cobra on my left
Leopard on my right, yeah

The deer woman in a silk dress
Girls with beads around their necks
Kiss the hunter of the green vest
Who has wrestled before
With lions in the night

Out of sight!
The lights are getting brighter
The radio is moaning
Calling to the dogs
There are still a few animals
Left out in the yard
But it's getting harder
To describe sailors
To the underfed

Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
What got us this far
To this mild equator?

We need someone or something new
Something else to get us through, yeah, c'mon

Callin' on the dogs
Callin' on the dogs
Oh, it's gettin' harder
Callin' on the dogs
Callin' in the dogs
Callin' all the dogs
Callin' on the gods

You gotta meet me
Too late, baby
Slay a few animals
At the crossroads
Too late
All in the yard
But it's gettin' harder
By the crossroads
You gotta meet me
Oh, we're goin', we're goin great
At the edge of town
Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
Havin' a good time
Got to come along
What got us this far
To this mild equator?
Outskirts of the city
You and I
We need someone new
Somethin' new
Somethin' else to get us through
Better bring your gun
Better bring your gun
Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
We're gonna ride and have some fun

When all else fails
We can whip the horse's eyes
And make them sleep
And cryback to top
