One Of These Days
One of these days
I'm going to cut you into little piecesback to top
A Pillow Of Winds
The cloud of eiderdown draws around me
Softening the sound
Sleepy time when I lie with my love by my side
And she's breathing low, and the candle dies

When night comes down you lock the door
The look falls to the floor
As darkness falls and waves roll by
The seasons changed, the wind is warm

Now wakes the owl, now sleep the swan
Behold the dream, the dream is gone
Green fields, a cold rain
Is falling in a golden glow

And deep beneath the ground the early morning sounds
And I go down
Sleepy time when I lie with my love by my side
And she's breathing low, and I rise like a bird
In the haze when the first rays touch the sky
And the night wings dieback to top
You say the hill's too steep to climb, try it
You say you'd like to see me try climb it
You pick the place and I'll choose the time
And I'll climb the hill in my own way
Just wait a while for the right day
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds
I look down, hearing the sounds of the things you've said today

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
Mercyless the magistrate turns round, frowning
And who's the fool who wears the crown
Go down in your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in his crown
You look down, hearing the sound of the faces in the crowd

You never walk alone, you never walk alone
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you never walk alone, you never walk aloneback to top
San Tropez
As I reach for a peach, slide a ride down behind a chauffeur in San Tropez
Breaking a stick with a brick on the sand
Riding a wave in the wake of an old sedan
Sleeping alone in the drone of the darkness
Scratched by the sand that fell from my love
Keeping my dreams and I still hear her calling
If you're alone, I'll come home

Backward and homebound, a pigeon, a dove
Gone with the wind, the rain on an airplane
Owning a home with no silver spoon
I'm drinking champagne like a good tycoon
Sooner than wait for a break in the weather
I'll gather my far-flung thoughts together
Speeding away on the wind to a new day
If you're alone, I'll come home

And I pause for a while by a country style
And listen to the things they say
Digging the gold in a hole in my hand
Hoping the good, take a look at the way things end
And you're leading me down to a place by the sea
I hear your soft voice calling to me
Making a date for Rita Pavone
If you're alone, I'll come homeback to top
I was in the kitchen
Seamus, that's the dog, was outside
Well I was in the kitchen
Seamus, my own hound, was outside
Well you know the sun was sinking slowly
And my own hound-dog sat right down and criedback to top
Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time comes billowing across the sand
And everything is green, the sun beneath
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the where's or the why's
But something stares and something tries
And starts to climb towards the land

Strangers passing in the street by chance to separate closes meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can
And no one calls us to the dawn
And no one forces down our eyes
And no one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and insighting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And crawl to you across the skyback to top
