1. SUICIDAL MAN

Waiting by the window
Staring at my shadow
Not believing what I'd seen
Touching but not feeling
And wondering in what I was dealing
And not knowing where I'd been

So I began walking
And to myself I was talking
But didn't know which way to go
Then I found a direction
And now I needed some action
But I should have just said no
Should have said no

Why won't you help me or give me hand
'Cause I'm close to becoming a suicidal man
What I need is someone with a definite plan
For I've waited for just about as long as I can

Suicidal man, suicidal, suicidal
Suicidal man

So on my travels
Still with all my troubles
I found someone who cared
The answer was so easy
That all she did to please me
Was to say a problem's smaller when it's shared

He was a suicidal man, he was a suicidal man
He was a suicidal man, he was a suicidal man
Who was he, suicidal man, who was he, suicidal man
suicidal man, suicidal man

2. THE SHADOWS AND THE WIND

Oh they're movin' in again
Hidden by the shadows and the wind
But we'll just wait awhile and then
We'll show 'em all that this time we ain't giving in
Ain't giving in

Without a care they sweep aside our dreams
To try and make way for their own
No more should we surrender to their schemes
It's time to stand and show them we are not alone

Time has changed us all
We have our minds
Life has taught us
We all have our love
And it's time to use it
Oh boy, use it, whoa

Well nature gave us colour, day and night
So if you've really got a reason then you better be right
The seasons of the year show spring and fall
But there's nothing in the world that's says it's right to fight

Time has changed us all
We have our minds
Life has taught us
We all have our love
Why don't we use it
C'mon and use it
Why don't we use it
C'mon and use it, whoa
La, la la la laaa
La, la la la laaa
(repeat to fade)




3. SO TIRED

Well I've been in the road for a year or more
And I done a lot of things I never did before
Now I want everyone to listen to my song
And you can tell me when you've heard it if you think I'm wrong

'Cause I'm so tired
Of everybody staring at me
Yes I'm so tired
And I'm so uninspired
Please help me

Well I've seen 'em rise and I've seen 'em fall
And I use to think that I was having a ball
But I was kiddin' myself for a long long time
But now I got myself a spoon - I'm feeling fine

But I'm so tired
Of everybody staring at me
Yes I'm so tired
And I'm so uninspired
Wontcha please help me

Where can you go, where can you go
When there is no-one to show a guiding light
What did you say, what did you say
Have you been thinking about me day and night

'Cause I'm so tired
Of everybody staring at me
And I'm so, so tired
And I'm so uninspired
Please help me
Wontcha please help me
(adlib vocals to end)




4. THE EASY ROAD

If you're looking for a place you can fly together
And you're really afraid of what you're leaving behind
Take the easiest road but take care my brother
For you'll never find peace with a troubled mind

Far better to love each other
Than to worry so deeply 'bout the place you're in
And far better to kiss her softly
Than looking back on a love
You'll never have again

Time's as fickle as the sky in winter
And two hearts always were better than one
And love has the wings of a tireless angel
She'll stay beside you till the day is done

La la la la, La la la la

Far better to love each other
Than to worry so deeply 'bout the place you're in
And far better to kiss her softly
Than looking back on a love
You'll never have again
You'll never have again
No no no no never again
You'll never have again




5. SOMETHING OR NOTHING

C'mon

There's never a day when I've got nothing to do
'Cause something to me might mean nothing to you
So don't, don't, don't, don't look at me strangely now
We'll find the line that's in the middle and run

Something
We've got to run
Something or nothing

You say you love to spend days, but I will save mine
Waiting for the sun in your eyes to turn the rivers to wine
But don't, don't, don't, don't look at me strangely now
We're gonna find the line that's in the middle and run

Something, we've gotta run, something or nothing, run run run
Something, something or nothing
C'mon there

You say you love to spend days, but I will save mine
Waiting for the sun in your eyes to turn the rivers to wine
But don't, don't, don't, don't look at me strangely now
We'll find the line that's in the middle and run

Something, something or nothing
It's gotta be something, something or nothing
Something, something or nothing
We're looking for something, something or nothing




6. I WON'T MIND

Well I don't mind, if you steal my last dime
Just leave me any time and I'll get, get along fine
I don't really know why
But I know I'll get by
If I don't I'll die tryin'

Well if it rains again, I'm gonna fly to the sun
'Cause nothing gets done just sittin', sittin' around
Look at the way it's been
Just waitin' and wanderin'
I've just got to keep tryin'

Looking for gold in the sky gets kinda rough
Maybe I'm to blame 'cause I didn't look hard enough
But I still get the feelin'
That it shouldn't be so tough
So I won't mind
I won't mind, I won't mind
Looking for gold in the sky gets kinda rough
Maybe I'm to blame 'cause I didn't look hard enough
But I still get the feelin'
That it shouldn't be so tough
So I won't mind, I won't mind
No I won't mind, said I won't mind yeah yeah




7. WE GOT WE

I got you
You got me
We are where we belong

Safe places
Warm faces
All have been gone too long

Sky writing
Inviting
Disappears admist the clouds

False promise
The last cold kiss
All seem so distant now

Just with each other
We are all so well armed
And with a little care we need
Never be harmed

We've got we
And there's love
before our eyes

We can have it
And hold it
If we realize

Just with each other
We are we are so well armed
And with a little care we need
Never no never be harmed

La la la, la la la
(repeat to fade)




8. DREAMS

You should have seen Tuesday's dream, dancing in my head
For you'd have heard a thousand words that nobody had said
And you'd have watched me try to run where dreams have never strayed
Heard my cries because I knew I really was afraid

Dreams, dreams I'll never keep
My body rests but my eyes refuse to sleep
Sights and sounds my mind created
Far beyond the thoughts of which we speak, c'mon

And then we danced on silver wings, upon a gilded thread
And heard the song the angel sings to bless my lowered head
And at the door of paradise my best laid plan begun
But as I turned to reach for you my coloured night it was gone

Dreams, dreams I'll never keep
My body rests but my eyes refuse to sleep
Sights and sounds my mind created
Far beyond the thoughts of which we speak

And then we danced on silver wings upon a gilded thread
I heard the song the angels sings to bless my lowered head
I'm at the door of paradise my best laid plan begun
But as I turned to reach for you my coloured night it was gone

Dreams, dreams I'll never keep
My body rests but my eyes refuse to sleep
Sights and sounds my mind created
Far beyond the thoughts of which we speak

Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet freedom

Dreamer, dreamer
Sweet, sweet freedom

Dreamer, dreamer
Dreamer, dreamer
