Make It With You

Hey have you ever tried,
Really reaching out for the other side?
I may be climbing on rainbows
But, baby here goes.

Dreams they're for those who sleep,
Life is for us to keep,
And if you're wond'ring
What this song is leading to

I want to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.

No, you don't know me well,
In ev'ry little thing only time will tell,
If you believe the things that I do.
And we'll see it through.

Life can be short or long,
Love can be right or wrong,
And if I choose the one
I'd like to help me through,

I'd like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.

Baby you know that
Dreams they're for those who sleep,
Life is for us to keep
And if I choose the one
I'd like to help me through,

I'd like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.


Dismal Day

I look into my morning mirror
And it reveals some things to me that I had not been able to see
I saw someone that I'm not sure I want to be
An empty lonely face was starin' back at me

All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day

The afternoon was slow in coming
I drug myself outside the people that I knew would be there
And though they walked along pretending not to care
I knew behind my back they'd point and laugh and stare

CHORUS

And now the evening shadow's falling
I guess it's best I lay my hopes to rest for noone's calling my name
I sit and wait behind a door that's never knocked on
I live in silence like my phone that's never talked on

CHORUS


London Bridge

I know the times the times are hard to bear
It's hard to find someone to really care
But before I went down and out
Here's what I used to think about, think about:

London Bridge is always fallin' down,
But there it stood within the heart of town
Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come

The changes taking place are everywhere
The centuries past have nothing to compare
Where they stand, where they trip and fall
Watch the writing on the wall, on the wall

London Bridge is fallin' down at last,
And so another memory of the past
Has fell beneath the blade, but soon the dead may be repaid

I know things just can't evolve for all eternity
The thoughts will leave, will never die, and now so you can see

London Bridge is finally fallin' down,
It packed it up and shipped it outta town
And though the horror's gone, the memory will linger on
London Bridge is finally fallin' down,
It used to stand within the heart of town
Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come
London Bridge is finally fallin' down.....


Anyway You Want Me

Take me anyway you want me
'Cause I need your love to see me through
You can make me anyway you want me
That's all that I can offer you
I have tried so hard to please you
But I just can't seem to reach you

Tried, tried a little kindness
Every night and day like I knew I should
But you can take me, yes and you can leave me
But I always stayed, and you knew I would
Come on, come on closer now
I will get to you somehow

Come on, come on closer now
I will get to you somehow
But you got to show me how
Please, please baby, please
Please, baby show me the way to your heart

You got to take me anyway you want me
Or take me just, just the way I am
Take me, or you can make me


It Don't Matter To Me

It don't matter to me
If you really feel that
You need sometime to be free
Time to go out searching for yourself
Hoping to find time to go to find

And it don't matter to me
If you take up with someone
Who's better than me
'Cause your happiness is all I want
For you to find peace your piece of mind

Lotta people have an ego hang-up
'Cause they want to be the only one
How many came before it really doesn't matter
Just as long as you're the last
Everybody's moving on and try to find out
What's been missing in the past

And it don't matter to me
If your searching brings you back together with me
'Cause there'll always be
An empty room waiting for you
An open heart waiting for you
Time is on my side
'Cause it don't matter to me
It don't matter to me....


The Last Time

Hey, didn't you believe me when I told you I was leavin'?
Well, wait a little while and soon you will be believin'
I'm tellin' you now like I told you before
That love has got to be somethin' more
Than a pasttime, this is the last time

This is the last time that I will say goodbye
You say it doesn't mean a thing
Let's see what the future brings
In the past, I've changed my mind, but
This has got to be the last time

Well, didn't you believe it when I said you don't know how to love me?
You, you never understood that you weren't so high above me
I didn't realize 'til a moment ago
That time doesn't really go this slow
And it's past time, this is the last time

CHORUS

Whatcha gonna do when nights are gettin' colder, baby?
Where ya gonna go, you know you're gettin' older, baby?
Guess you're gonna have to be a little bolder, baby
Whatcha gonna do to satisfy your hunger, baby?
Oh, don't it seem that everyone's a-gettin' younger, baby?
Guess you're gonna have to find yourself another past time
Judgin' from the past, I know it won't be the last time

CHORUS


Let Your Love Go

There's a reason for the life that you live
And there's pleasin' that I know you can give
And I been crayin' the love you been sayin'
So baby won't you give it to me

You're tellin' me no - no - no
You don't want to let your love go
I'm tellin' you yes - yes - yes
You really oughta be gettin' some happiness

I made a motion and it's out on the floor
And it's a notion that I'd love to explore
'Cause I been tastin' the love you been wastin'
So baby won't you give it to me...

You're a lady
And I'm here in the palm of your hand
Such a lady
How much more do you think I can stand?


Truckin'

Truckin' down the highway
Get outta my way
Always in a hurry
Always in between
That's where you can find me
Truckin' down the highway
Sittin' in the cab of
A ten ton machine

Gettin' pretty tired of stoppin'
In old run down cafes
Some day I'm gonna find me a woman
Rich enough to pay my way

Gonna make some inroads
Drivin' home a payload
Truckin' down the highway
Like you never seen

Gettin' pretty tired of lookin'
In truck stop cabarets
Some day I'm gonna find me a woman
Rich enough to pay my way

Then you're gonna find me
Truckin' down the highway
Sittin' in the back of
A long limousine


If

If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away


Baby I'm-A Want You

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
You the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I'm-a crazy
But I just can't live without...

Your lovin' and affection
Givin' me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through a darkest hour
Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why...

Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me.

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh
And made me cry...
You taught me why...

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you

Oh, it took so long to find you, baby

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you


Everything I Own

You sheltered me from harm.
Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me
Set me free, Set me free
The finest years I ever knew
were all the years I had with you

I would give anything I own,
Give up me life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own,
just to have you back again.

You taught me how to love,
What its of, what its of.
You never said too much,
but still you showed the way,
and I knew from watching you.
Nobody else could ever know
the part of me that can't let go.

I would give anything I own,
Give up me life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again.

Is there someone you know,
you're loving them so,
but taking them all for granted.
You may lose them one day,
someone takes them away,
and they don't hear the words you long to say

I would give anything I own,
Give up me life, my heart, my home.
I would give everything I own
Just to have you back again.


Down On My Knees

I told you before - don't you hear what I say
I won't take it no more - no more makin' me stay
Down on my knees - you know I'm down on my knees yeh
Yes I've been down on my knees
But I'm through beggin' please
I won't get back on my knees.

Nobody knows - what your puttin me through
Nobody knows - if it's worth it for you
Nobody sees - you got me down on my knees
Well I've been down on my knees
And I'm through beggin' please
Don't put me back on my knees.

You know how I always loved you
Never placed myself above you,

Don't let me go - if I wish that I could
Don't tell me no - if I wish that you would
Down on my knees - you know I'm down on my knees
Well I've been down on my knees
But I'm through beggin' please
Don't put me back on my knees.


Aubrey

And Aubrey was her name,
A not so very ordinary girl or name.
But who's to blame?
For a love that wouldn't bloom
For the hearts that never played in tune.
Like a lovely melody that everyone can sing,
Take away the words that rhyme it doesn't mean a thing.

And Aubrey was her name.
We triped the light and danced together to the moon,
But where was June.
No it never came around.
If it did it never made a sound,
Maybe I was absent or was listening to fast,
Catching all the words, but then the meaning going past,

But God I miss the girl,
And I'd go a thousand times around the world just to be
Closer to her than to me.

And Aubrey was her name,
I never knew her, but I loved her just the same,
I loved her name.
Wish that I had found the way
And the reasons that would make her stay.
I have learned to lead a life apart from all the rest.
If I can't have the one I want, I'll do without the best.

But how I miss the girl
And I'd go a million times around the world just to say
She had been mine for a day.


Diary

I found her diary underneath a tree.
and started reading about me
The words she's written took me by surpise
you'd never read them in her eyes.
They said that she had found the love she waited for.
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.

When she confronted with the writing there,
simply pretended not to care.
I passed it off as just in keeping with
her total disconcerting air
and though she tried to hide
the love that she denied,
wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.

And as I go through my life, I will give to her my wife
all the sweet things that I can find.

I found her diary underneath a tree.
and started reading about me.
The words began stick and tears to flow.
Her meaning now was clear to see.
The love she'd waited for was someone else not me
Wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.

and as I go through my life, I will wish for her his wife
all the sweet things that she can find
all the sweet things they can find


Sweet Surrender

Baby I'm through runnin' it's true
I'd be a fool to try to escape you
Maybe I'm beat but oh what a sweet surrender

You keep your rights, I'll take your nights
No one can lose when we turn the lights out
Tastin' defeat, lovin' that sweet surrender

I'm givin' up myself to you but I didn't really lose at all
I gave the only love I've known and it never hurt me to fall

Now that it's done, so glad you won
I know our lives have only begun now
No more retreat, only my sweet surrender


The Guitar Man

Who draws the crowd and plays so loud,
Baby it's the guitar man.
Who's gonna steal the show, you know
Baby it's the guitar man,

He can make you love, he can make you cry
He will bring you down, then he'll get you high
Somethin' keeps him goin', miles and miles a day
To find another place to play.

Night after night who treats you right,
Baby it's the guitar man
Who's on the radio, you go listen
To the guitar man

Then he comes to town, and you see his face,
And you think you might like to take his place
Somethin' keeps him driftin' miles and miles away
Searchin' for the songs to play.

Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along,
You want to get the meaning out of each and ev'ry song
Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own
And take them home.

He can make you love, he can get you high
He will bring you down, then he'll make you cry
Somethin' keeps him movin', but no one seems to know
What it is that makes him go.

Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice he's just got to find
Another place to play,
Anyway got to play, anyway Got to play.


Fancy Dancer

Watchin' you move across the floor
You're fire up my mind can't take it no more
You're a fancy dancer
Makin' me blind so I can't see
You're a fancy dancer
And you ain't no good for me
You know you're comin' on strong
You're my favorite misery

You captured my soul - imprisoned my heart
You know you control whatever you start
You're fancy dancer
And it ain't too hard to see
You're fancy dancer
And you'll make a fool of me
I know it won't be for long
Until you dance a new song
But just for tonight won't you dance your dance for me

I'm not the first and I won't be the last
Don't want your future - just make the night last
C'mon fancy dancer
Make me blind so I can't see
You're a fancy dancer
And you ain't no good for me
Yeh, we both knew from the start
You'd try do dance with my heart
But just for tonight won't you dance your dance for me
