Breakin' Up Is Easy

Breakin'up is easy
LIke to know what's hard about it
First you find yourself with love then
You find yourself withou it
There's really nothing that you
Have to do
It just sort of happens to you

You can be a loser
Even if you don't like the part
Just be very careful
No to let the habit start
Cause if you're a loser
You know it's true
It shows up in everything you do

But this ain't no time for pity
Time for bein' cool and witty
Wish her the best and send her on her way
I do believe that's what I'm s'posed to say
It wouldn't matter anyway

Cause breakin' up is easy
Specially if you don't mind cryin'
You can say it's easy
That's if you don't mind lyin'
You can live without her
But it's a lot like dyin'
Breakin' up is easy to do
Unless it happens to you


Someday

Every time I took into your eyes you look away
And sometimes I get the feelin' that you don't know
What to say
And you know I hate to see you feel this way
But I do believe you'll feel my love someday

It's been a while since we held each other's hand
And if I didn't know you babe I'd think you found another man
But I know you need some love to light the way
And you'll feel the joy of my sweet love someday

If I haven't shown you let me tell you
My love keeps growin' day by day
In times of need you know I'll be there right beside you
Every day, every way

It's been some time since we held each other tight
And you know I long to hold you each and every night
But I know that love has got to light the way
And you'll feel the warmth of my sweet love someday
Someday


Love You 'Till The Cow's Come Home

Burn bright firelight
Make my day and light the night
Baby's comin' home on a red eye flight
And I been waitin' all week just to hold her tight

I'm gonna love you baby
And don't you know we'll disconnect the phone
I'm gonna love you mama yeh, yeh
I'm gonna love you till the cows come home

You know it only seems like yesterday
Was sittin' down at a record review
When in walked the hottest thing that you'd ever see
"Say daddy how do you do"
I told her I'd be glad to show her
And we left the scene
Heavy... funky... woman... come to me

You know I've met a lot of women in my lifetime
Dontcha know they really turned me on
And though they gave me all that I needed
Didn't last too long

I been up town downtown
Even laid my money down
You know I really paid my dues
But since I met that woman
Now I never sing the blues
Heavy... funky... woman... come to me


She Knows

And when my troubles start to get me down
She's always there you know she always can be found
And never lets it weight too much on me
She always seems to be in touch with me you see

She knows
And I am drawn to her it is as thought
I were a moth and she the candles glow

And when the world has got the best of me
She seems to have the power to change my destiny
I try to tell her what is on my mind
And even though the words are hard to find at times
She knows
And when she comes to me it is as though
I were earth and she new fallen snow
And I will sing of all the things she knows
She gives me wings with all the things she knows


Father And Son

When I was a child
I was free runnin wild
And my mother said
Look what your father's done
You will not obey
Won't do nothin' I say
Then she shook her head
I was my father's son

Father and son
We were a lot like each other
Father and son
You know the blood is thicker than water

Night after night
My parents would tight
Till my mother said
Hush up you'll wake the kid
And then came the day when he just west away
And I sat and I cried
And wondered why he did

Father and son
We couldn't be together
Father and son
You know the blood is thicker than water

_____ years later
But as I go wanderin' on
I still believe he'll come along
And we could talk as if nothin' were wrong
Of things that we done
Only to talk to him father to son


You'll Get Along

You know I don't have a cent to my name
The Northwind she'll come and blow just the same
She come down on me leave me cold and alone
But honey now I get along while she's gone

I turn off the lights get down on my knees
I talk to the man I'm beggin' him please
To let the night pass so soft and slow
For tomorrow who knows I may go

You know I go to the night spots
But now they never make me feel, so hot
And then the lady comes a smilin'
I put a dollar-fifty in her box

I know that it hurts the pain that you feel
I only takes love the time that should heal
The one that you miss left you cold and alone
But honey you'll get along when he's gone

You know I go to the night spots
But now they never make me feel, so hot
And then the lady comes a smilin'
I put a dollar-fifty in her box


Lifeline

You can be my lifeline if you want to
You can be the one to help me come through
And if I find out that your love is true
I'll make it knowing I can believe in you

More than just a momentary pleasure
You gave my life something I can measure
Now that I've found out what your love can do
I'll spend my whole lifetime makin' love to you
Believin' in you

And now at last I've found the peace of mind
That I've been looking for
I turned around and there you stood with love
I never knew before
Now I'm dyin' to live 'stead of livin' to die
First you learn how to give then you give it a try

You can be my lifeline if you hear me
I could spend a lifetime with you near me
And now I've found out what your love can do
I'll spend my whole lifetime makin' love to you
Believin' in you


Only Now

Only now do I see
What it is you mean to me
Only now have I learned
What it is to ne concerned
Only now can I say
What was missing yesterday
Only now

It's a long winding road
It can be a heavy load
And the people you find
May not always be so kind
But when you came along
I found out where I belong
Only now do I see

Sometimes you look so hard for what you think is real
And the world's too big a place
But then it happens all at once and there you are
Face to face...

All the hopes and the fears
That you feel throughout the years
Can be too much to bear
If the meaning isn't there
I was so much in doubt
Now I know what I'm about
Only now do I see


Goin' Back To Boston

Going back to Boston
Cause I need a change of season
And I can't believe the reason
Why I came
So far away from New England
Where the winter leaves are fallin'
For I hear a different callin'
Than I found here in L.A.

So take me home now
And I'll start all over again
With family and friends
I'll have to tell them that she's gone
Gone gone
But she's wrong, wrong, wrong
For movin on
And I need a change of weather now
To get myself together
Cause she's gone, gone, gone

After graduation
On the first week of vacation
I met her on Nantucket in the spring
That's when I followed her out west
But then I guess you know the rest
And now I'm goin' back to Boston
Where I understand the game

So take me home now
Cause there's nothin' for me here
She made it pretty clear
When I woke up to find her gone
Gone gone
But she's wrong, wrong, wrong
For movin on
And the Southern California sun
Is not enough to warm you
When she's gone, gone, gone


Love To Light The Way

Some people really outta control
What they're looking for they don't know
Tryin to fill a hole in their soul
Never knowin' there's one more place to go
Love will light the way

Some people almost ready to die
Never seemin' to wonder why
Never gave it a second try
Only lookin for one more way to fly
Tell me why
When love could light the way
Love could light the way

Some people 'fraid of bein' afraid
Always lookin' to hide away
Neve seein' the light of day
Only needin' some love to light the way
