Lyrics

1. FOREVER FOR NOW

I've been ready, with lovin'on my mind
Don't say you're not that kind
My love, we've been through this before
It seems you're back for more
Of my love, its forever
Ooh baby forever, forever for now

I said baby, I'll give you all I can
And I hope you understand, my love
And you, you mean so much to me
But darling can't you see
That my love is forever
Ooh baby forever, forever for now
Ooh baby for now, I said my love is forever
Ooh baby forever, forever for now, my love

Come on baby you know I'd love to turn you on
Tomorrow I may be gone
But my love, that's forever
Ooh baby forever, forever for now
Ooh baby for now, I said my love is forever
Ooh baby forever, forever for now
Ooh baby forever, and ever, and ever, now
My love is forever
My love is forever, and ever, and ever, and ever
Oh, oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
My love is forever
My love is forever, and ever, and ever, and ever




2. CHILD’S GARDEN

Not so long ago, when I was just a child
I never realized the way I felt inside
And how much you meant to me
How much you meant to me
And I don't think I've ever told you so
And I thought you'd like to know
That now I see and I can understand
I understand

I was unkind, I must have been blind to your sorrow
And night after night, trying to live with your sorrow
And I was a bastard and I was wrong
And I was lost in things I've done
And I was stealing just for fun
And it was breaking your heart

So long ago, when I was just a child
I never understood, never realized
How much you meant to me
How much you meant to me
And I don't think I've ever told you so
And I thought you'd like to know
That now I see and I can understand
I understand

I was unkind, I must've been blind to your sorrow
Night after night, tryin' to live with your sorrow
I was unsure, and lookin' for more, I was anxious
To be on my own, livin' at home I was restless
And I was a bastard and I was wrong
And I was lost in the things I'd done
And I was stealin' for fun
And it was breakin' your heart
It was breakin' your heart




3. LOVIN’ YOU

I left you alone when you needed me
And I hurt you when I said that we were through
Now I've learned since you've gone
That you were right and I was wrong
And I'd give all I have to be with you

Cause I know there are times
When I must have been blind
When lovin'you was all I had to do

If I'd given you more understanding
I would've realized that I was unfair
Takin' more than I should, until you left me for good
Now I'd give all I have to be with you

Cause I know there are times
When I must have been blind
When lovin' you was all I had to do

Now I've learned since you've gone
That you were right and I was wrong
And I'd give all I have to be with you

Cause I know there are times
Lord, when I must have been blind
When lovin' you was all I had to do




4. HOLLY WOULD

Back when I was in high school
I was lookin' for it all the time
Until I met this sweet young thing
And she could see what was on my mind
And girls used to tease me
And say "well I don't know if I should"
But I never really cared that much
Cause I knew that Holly would

And Holly would drive me crazy
Holly would get it on
And Holly would love to please me
Holly girl where have you gone

She brought me to her side and said
"Myles, I don't wanna cause a scene
But come with me and I'll show you boy
What 7 Up really means"
She wasn't all that pretty
And the fact is she was a mess
But she had the right attitude
And I liked Holly best

And Holly would drive me crazy
Holly would get it on
Holly would love to please me
Holly girl where have you gone, yeah

She'd come into the school yard
To show you a better time
She'd let you smoke her cigarettes
And she always had some wine
She was really somethin'
The fact is she was a mess
But she had the right attitude
And I liked Holly best

And Holly would drive me crazy
Holly would get it on
And Holly would love to tease me
Holly girl where have you gone
Holly would drive me crazy
Holly would get it on
And Holly would love to tease me
Holly girl where have you gone




5. YOU WON’T DANCE WITH ME

When I try to phone, they say you're not at home
I don't believe that it's true
And when we fool around, you always put me down
Now what am I supposed to do

When you won't dance with me
And you won't hold hands with me
And that's not the way to be
Girl, you're treating me bad

I used to walk you home, now I walk alone
And it seems that you don't care
And when we're at school, you say I'm a fool
Why must you treat me so unfair

And you won't dance with me
And you won't hold hands with me
And that's not the way to be
Girl, you're treating me bad
So why should I bother to try
And why should I cry
When you don't want my love
When you don't want my love




6. COME AWAY

As I walk along the lonely streets
I can't talk to the people that I meet
I see them come, and I see them go
I see them smile, and say hello

Come with me and take my hand
Ooh, fly away to another land, oh yes we will
Come with me and take my hand
We'll fly away to another land

Come over here little girl
And I'll show you another world
Where we can be free to do as we want
Live our lives as we please, and say what we like, oh

Come with me and take my hand, ooh
We'll fly away to another land
Come with me and take my hand, oh
And fly away to another land

There's so many things that remain to be done
And no one has thought of a way to begin
So follow me into my life

Come with me and take my hand (and take...)
Fly away to another land (fly away to another land)
Come with me and take my hand (ooh)
Fly away to another land (fly away to another land)
Come with me and take my hand (take my hand)
Fly away to another land (oh yes we will)
Come with me and take my hand (and take my hand, take my hand)
Fly away to another land (yeah)
Come with me and take my hand
Fly away to another land
Come with me and take my hand
Fly away to another land




7. MAMA LAYE

In a foreign land beneath a foreign sky
They speak of Mama Laye
They don't believe she died
The people raise their eyes
They said they'd sing a song
They ask the spirit world
Cause they know where she's gone
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no, no no

They say she never sleeps
She never close her eyes
She speaks the magic tongue
She's slowly hypnotized
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no, no no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, Mama Laye

They are as grains of sand
And then they are as one
They pray to Mama Laye
The father, mother, son
They say she's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no, no no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, Mama Laye
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, no, no no
She's never far away, Mama Laye, Mama Laye




8. I’D RATHER BE STRONG

It's a sad situation
Alot of hopeless information
On the news
Nothin's gonna please you
And nothin's gonna change
Well that's your view
So many hungry people
It's a shame and is it legal?
Well it's a sight
There's something goin' on
Somethin' we can change
And it's our right

So I'd rather be strong
In a hopeless situation, yes
I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation, yes
I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
Yes I would, yes I would

Well you can say it's a shame
And things remain the same
And so it goes
But no one's gonna hear you
And no one's gonna see
What doesn't show
It'd be cause for celebration
If only every nation understood
And helping one another
And doing for the other, what they could

And I'd rather be strong
In a hopeless situation, yes
I would rather be strong
And to show determination, yes
I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation

Yes I would, yes I would
I'd be a lot better off if I could
Be part of the love
That's seemingly lost from above

A delicate situation (situation)
Requires contemplation, everyone (everyone)
And someone has to care (someone to care)
When people live in fear of each man's son (each man's son)

So I'd rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
Yes, I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
Yes, I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation

Yes, I would, yes, I would
I'd be a lot better off if I could
Be part of the love
That's seemingly lost from above

I'd rather be strong, ooh yes, I would
Well, I'd rather be strong, yes I would, yes I would, yes I would
Well, I'd rather be strong, ooh yes I would
Well, I'd rather be strong, be strong, yes I would, yes I would
Well, I'd rather be strong, yes I would
Well I'd rather be strong, be strong, yes I would
In a hopeless situation
Yes, I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation, yes
I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation
Yes, I would rather be strong
In a hopeless situation, yes
I would rather be strong




9. HARD TIMES

Hard times, hard times, hard times, hard times

When the college professor has no class
And the quarterback would rather pass
And the pump jockey complains of gas
It's hard times, hard times
When the taxi driver he can't hack it
And the tennis player can't stand the racket
When allies refuse to pack it, it's hard times
Hard times, hard times, real hard times

When the elevator can't find the floor
And the doorman he can't find the door
When they give to the rich what they take from the poor, it's hard times
Seems your money's gone before it's spent
If you're not busted then you're badly bent
To give it away doesn't make any sense, it's hard times
Hard times, hard times, real hard times, hard times

Now grandma forgets how to knit
And the wise man has lost his wit
And my tailor feels unfit, it's hard times, hard times
When the fashion model's lost her poise
And Santa Clause smashes all the toys
When boys could be girls, and girls could be boys, it's hard times
Hard times, hard times, real hard times, hard times

When the clock on the wall's got no time for jokes
And Kreskin says it's all a hoax
When the Surgeon General chain smokes, it's hard times
When the truck driver don't wanna truck
And the hockey player won't touch the puck
And the rock musician don't wanna fool around, it's hard times
Hard times, hard times, real hard times
Harder times, hard times

I was talking to this lady the other day and she was telling me..........




10. MARJORIE

It seems like a silly thing I said
Seems like a silly thing I've done
But I was lost and all alone, completely alone
I couldn't take it anymore

And like a dream you came to me
And when no one else can see
You help me understand
Took me gently by the hand
Marjorie, your memory, is living, loving, everyday
But no one's strong when love goes wrong
It's over, if no one wants to stay
And I really feel I have to get away, get away

And yes it's sad to be alone
Gettin' drunk and gettin' stoned
First the whiskey, then the wine
Till I was losin' my mind
I couldn't take it anymore

And like a dream you came to me, oh
As no one else could see
You helped me understand
And took me gently by the hand
And I can tell, that magic spell
Is living, loving, everyday
But no one's strong when love goes wrong
It's over, if no one wants to stay
And I really feel I have to get away, get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away, ooh
Get away, get away, get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away, ooh
Get away, get away, get away, get away, ooh
Get away, get away, get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away, ooh
Get away, get away, get away
