@SONG: Gone Hollywood



It's just heartbreaking

I should have known that it would let me down

It's just a mind aching

I used to dream about this town

It was a sight to see The place to be,

Where the living is easy

And the kicks can always be found

It's such a shame about it

I used to think that it would feel so good

But who's to blame about it So many creeps in Hollywood

I'm in this dumb motel Nea the 'Taco Bell'

Without a hope in hell I can't believe that I'm still around

Ain't nothin new in my life today

Ain't nothing true it's all gone away

I've had too much cryin', seen too much grief

I'm sick of tryin' it's beyond belief

I'm tired of talking on the telephone

They're trying to tell me that they're not at home

Ain't nothing new in my life today

I'm tired of walking from place to place

I've yet to come across a friendly face

And now the words sound familiar, as them slam the door "You're not what we're looking for."

Ain't nothing new in my life today

Ain't nothing true it's all gone away

If we only had time, only had time for you

If we only had time, only had time for you

If we only had time, only had time for you

It was a heartbreaking

Now I ride in the big fine car

It was mind aching

I'm the talk of the boulevard

So keep your chin up boy

Forget the pain I know you'll make it

If you try again

There's no use in quitting

When the world is waiting for you





@SONG: The Logical Song


When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,

a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.

And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,

joyfully, playfully watching me.

But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible, logical, responsible, practical.

And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable, clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,

the questions run too deep

for such a simple man.

Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned

I know it sounds absurd

but please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal.

Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable, respecable, presentable, a vegtable!

At night, when all the world's asleep,

the questions run so deep

for such a simple man.

Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned

I know it sounds absurd

but please tell me who I am.





@SONG: Goodbye Stranger
It was an early morning yesterday

I was up before the dawn And I really have enjoyed my stay

But I must be moving on

Like a king without a castle

Like a queen without a throne

I'm an early morning lover

And I must be moving on

Now I believe in what you say

Is the undisputed truth

But I have to have things my own way

To keep me in my youth

Like a ship without an achor

Like a slave without a chain

Just the thought of those sweet ladies

Sends a shiver through my veins

And I will go on shining

Shining like brand new

I'll never look behind me

My troubles will be few

Goodbye strange it's been nice

Hope you find your paradise

Tried to see your point of view

Hope your dreams will all come true

Goodbye Mary,

Goodbye Jane

Will we ever meet again

Feel no sorrow, feel no shame

Come tomorrow, feel no pain

Now some they do and some they don't

And some you just can't tell

And some they will and some they won't

With some it's just as well

You can laugh at my behavior

That'll never bother me

Say the devil is my savior

But I don't pay no heed

And I will go on shining

Shining like brand new

I'll never look behind me

My troubles will be few

Goodbye stranger it's been nice etc...



@SONG: Breakfast In America

Take a look at my girlfriend

She's the only one I got

Not much of a girlfriend

Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo across the water

Like to see America

See the girls in California

I'm hoping it's going to come true

But there's not a lot I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast Mummy dear,Mummy dear

They got to have 'em in Texas

Cos everyone's a millionaire

I'm a winner, I'm a sinner

Do you want my autograph

I'm a loser, what a joker

I'm playing my jokes upon you

While there's nothing better to do

Don't you look at my girlfriend

She's the only one I got Not much of a girlfriend

Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo cross the water

Like to see America

See the girls in California

I'm hoping it's going to come true

But there's not a lot I can do



@SONG: Oh Darling

Oh darling, will you ever change your mind

I've been feeling left behind

Like a shadow in your light

Ah honey won't you say that I'm the one

And if you think you're gonna run

Well you know

I'm gonna be around you, all about you

Always by your side

I'm gonna dream about you, scheme about you

Love you all the time,

Love you all the time

I'm gonna catch you lady

Catch you lady

The news is all over town

You better not let me down

Keep telling me you're feeling good

As good as you ever could

Please tell me that you'll never go

Ah ah no no

Ah lately, I'm like a watch that's overwound

And I've got both feet off the ground

Because you see

I'm gonna be so busy, oh my pretty

Love you night and day

And through the rain and shine

I'll make you mine

I'll love you come what may

I'm gonna catch you lady, catch you lady

Catch you lady uh huh



@SONG: Take The Long Way Home

So you think you're a Romeo playing a part in a picture-show

Take the long way home

Take the long way home

Cos you're the joke of the neighborhood

Why should you care if you're feeling good

Take the long way home

Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery all the greenery is comin' down, boy

And then your wife seems to think you're part of the furniture oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice.

When lonely days turn to lonely nights you take a trip to the city lights

And take the long way home

Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see

Forever playing to the gallery

You take the long way home

Take the long way home

And when you're up on the stage, it's so unbelievable, unforgettable, how they adore you,

But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity, oh, calamity, is there no way out?

Does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe?

Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy.

When you look through the years and see what you could have been oh, what might have been, if you'd had more time.

So, when the day comes to settle down, Who's to blame if you're not around?

You took the long way home

You took the long way home...........



@SONG: Lord Is It Mine

I know that there's a reason why

I need to be alone

I need to find a silent place that

I can call my own

Is it mine,

Lord is it mine?

When everything's dark and nothing seems right,

there's nothing to win and there's no need to fight

I never cease to wonder at the cruelty of this land but it seems a time of sadness is a time to understand

Is it mine,

Lord is it mine?

When everything's dark and nothing seems right,

You don't have to win and there's no need to fight

If only

I could find a way to feel your sweetness through the day

The love that shines around me could be mine.

So give us an answer, won't you,

We know what we have to do,

There must be a thousand voices trying to get through.



@SONG: Just Another Nervous Wreck

I'm feeling so alone now

They cut the telephone uh huh

Yeah my life is just a mess

I threw it all away now

I could have made a fortune

I lost the craving for success

And as the acrobats they tumble

So the corn begins to crumble

While in the mirror

She admires a brand new dress

Live on the second floor now

They're trying to bust the door down,Soon

I'll have a new address

So much for liberation

They'll have a celebration

Yeah I've been under too much stress

And as the cloud begin to rumble

So the juggler makes his fumble

And the sun upon my wall is getting less

Don't, give a damn

Fight, while you can

Kill, shoot 'em up

They'll run amuck

Shout, Judas Loud, they'll hear us Soldier, sailor

They'll run for cover when they discover

Everyone's a nervous wreck now

I used to think she was so nimble

Would have bought her as symbol

But now I can't afford the pen to sign her checks

Don't give a damn............................

They'll run for cover when they discover

Everyone's a nervous wreck now

Life's just a bummer they got your number

We'll give as good as we get now

Rise from the gutter, stick with each other

We'll drive 'em over the edge now

They're gonna bleed, that's what they need

We'll get together and blow their cover

We're ready

Yeah we're ready

Yeah we're ready



@SONG: Casual Conversation

It doesn't matter what I say

You never listen anyway

Just don't know what you're looking for

Imagination's all I have

But ever then you say it's bad

Just can't see why we disagree

Casual conversations how they bore me

They go on and on endlessly

But no matter what I say

You ignore me anyway I might as well talk in my sleep (I could weep)

You try to make me feel so small

Until there's nothing left at all

Why go on?

Just hoping that we'll get along

There's no communication left between us

But is it me or you who's to blame?

There's nothing I can do, yes you're fading out of view

Don't know if I feel joy or pain

And now it's all been said

If you must leave then go ahead

Should feel sad

But I really believe that I'm glad

Yes I really believe that I'm glad



@SONG: Child Of Vision

Well, who do you think you're foolin'?

You say you're havin' fun,

But you're busy going nowhere,

Just lying in the sun.

You tried to be a hero, commit the perfect crime but the dollar got you dancing and you're running out of time.

You're messin' up the water

You're rolling in the wine

You're poisoning your body

You're poisoning your mind

You gave me coca-cola

You said it tasted good

You watch the television

It tell you that you should.

@SONG:How can you live in this way?

@SONG: You must have something to say.

There must be more to this life.

It's time we did something right.

Child of Vision, won't you listen?

Find yourself a new ambition.

I've heard it all before

You're saying nothing new

I thought I saw a rainbow

But I guess it wasn't true

You cannot make me listen

I cannot make you hear

You find your way to heaven,

I'll meet you when you're there.

@SONG: How can you live in this way?

@SONG: You must have something to say.

We have no reason to fight, cos we both know that we're right.

Child of Vision, won't you listen?

Find yourself a new ambition.
