2. YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A LADY

Could have been alright, could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
I could have been alright, I could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady

They all need you, to make love to
When you awake, you find them on the bed, lyin' beside you
They all love you, you're a good girl
And I ain't surprised, when you realize, just where you're goin' to

You could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady

If I told you, where you're goin' to
You'd laugh in my face, say I'm out of place, mind your business
And they all want you, to make love to
It's ashame, the fate of the game, the way it delights you

You could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
Na, na na na na, na, na, na na na na, na
Na, na na na na, na, na na
Na, na na na na, na, na, na na na na, na
Na, na na na na, na, na na
Alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady




3. BELIEVE IN ME

I woke this morning, from a dream I had of you
Of a sunny morning, sunshine and dew
Turn your head around, you know just what to do
It's those summer nights that I spent with you

Walk on (walk on), and believe in me
And help us find the love you know we need
Walk on, and believe in me
And help us find the love you know we need

In the evening, the wind can set you free
There's a faith that grew, and stayed with me
Turn your head around, you know just what to do
It's those summer nights that I spent with you
Can you hear the water splashing
And Grover tryin' to have his own way
We stood there laughing, like a child who loves to run
And it's just begun, it's just begun, to set us free

Walk on (walk on), and believe in me
And help us find the love you know we need
Walk on, and believe in me
And help us find the love you know we need




4. WORK ALL DAY

Set yourself in the right direction, now what you gonna do
You hear me smartly callin', laughin', I know you
And if you find the mood's confusin', now don't you go astray
And in the mornin', you wake up laughin', what you gonna do

Work all day, work all night, yeah yeah
Work all day, work all night, yeah yeah

It's five in the morning, I feel like callin' you, somethin's on the way
I'm feelin' lazy, it still sounds crazy, it happens every day
But if I find the right direction, I'll know just what to do
And in the morning, I wake up laughin', what you gonna do

In my confession, I feel myself needin' you
And if I can see you, I'll give all my love to you
I feel my light shinin', feel myself callin' you
And now I can see you, I touch you, I feel you, ooh yeah

Bring me up, bring me down
It's five in the morning, I feel like calling you
Bring me up, bring me down
It's five in the morning, I feel like calling you

Work all day, work all night, yeah yeah
Work all day, work all night, yeah yeah
Work all day, work all night, yeah yeah
Work all day, work all night, yeah yeah




5. DROP YOUR GUNS

Look at all the places we been, and look where we are
Something is amiss here cause we never seem to get very far
Now I got a feeling, a plan, some music to sing
And I'm looking for the right words to convey the message we bring

If you can hear it, mmm, I'm gettin' near it, if I can say it
Drop your guns, and raise your hands in the air
You're the one that started all the trouble out there

Grease me, I'm near you, blast me, I'm in your way
You're the thing in a song, that really ought to be put away
Now I got a feeling, a plan, some music to sing
And I'm looking for the right words to convey the message we bring

If you can hear it, I'm gettin' near it, if I can say it
Drop your guns, and raise your hands in the air

Drop your guns, and raise your hands in the air
Drop your guns, and raise your hands in the air
Drop your guns, and raise your hands in the air
Drop your guns, and raise your hands in the air




6. BAD SIDE OF THE MOON

Seems as though I've lived my life on the bad side of the moon
To stir your dregs, and sittin' still, without a rustic spoon
Now come on people, live with me, where the light has never shone
And the harlots flock like hummingbirds, speakin' in a foreign tongue

This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life

It seems as though I've lived my life on the bad side of the moon
To stir your dregs, and sittin' still, without a rustic spoon
Now come on people, live with me, where the light has never shone
And the harlots flock like hummingbirds, speakin' in a foreign tongue
I'm a light world away, from the people who make me stay
Sittin' on the bad side of the moon

This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life

There ain't no need for watchdogs here, to justify our ways
We lived our lives in manacles, the main cause of our stay
And exiled here from other worlds, my sentence comes to soon
Why should I be made to pay on the bad side of the moon
I'm a light world away, from the people who make me stay
Sittin' on the bad side of the moon

This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life
This is my life, this is my life, this is my life, my life




7. REFUGE

I'm but a lad, oh for I'm twenty, tuned in to dreaming
Gazing at your sign, for mad men only, my poet's screaming
I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you

Take me to the wild black seas of madness, the savage dancer
Clothe me in insanity and leave me, to find the answer
I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you

I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you
I searched for you, but I can't find you




8. FLOW RIVER FLOW

You know I'd spend my life with you
Share all the dreams I have with you
Do you wanna see my cry
Do you wanna see me die, do you

I find it hard to face the day
I find a bar and dream I'll pay
Do you wanna see my cry
Do you wanna see me die, do you

Flow river flow, and carry me home
Flow river flow, and carry me home

You know I'd spend my life with you
Share all the dreams I have with you
Do you wanna see my cry
Do you wanna see me die, do you

Flow river flow, and carry me home
Flow river flow, and carry me home




9. CARRY ON

If the sun refused to shine
And your love's no longer mine
And if I never get no more snow
I couldn't care if the winds don't blow

She said to satisfy my soul, don't you carry on
And love me all morning, and love me when I get home
Love me all morning, and love me when I get home

You know that time won't wait
And pretty soon it's gonna be too late
Still you're drivin' me insane
You know I need your love again

She said to satisfy my soul, don't you carry on
Love me all morning, and love me when I get home
She said, love me all morning, and love me when I get home

Baby, don't you let me down
I think you'd better take a look around
Cause if I never get no more snow
I couldn't care if the winds don't blow

She said to satisfy my soul, don't you carry on
And love me all morning, and love me when I get home
Love me all morning, and love me when I get home




10. DIDN’T YOU

Look at my happiness melting with the snow
They tell me it happens all the time
Look at my emptiness, does it really show
That my life is out of rhyme, out of time
Look at my madness, watch it, how it grows
So many things I couldn't see
Look at my loneliness, does anybody know
How to change all this for me, or has it got to be

Didn't you see my warning
Didn't you hear my call
Didn't you see the morning
Comin' down upon us all, all

Look at my happiness melting with the snow
They tell me it happens all the time
Look at my emptiness, does it really show
That my life is out of rhyme, out of time

Didn't you see my warning
Didn't you hear my call
Didn't you see the morning
Comin' down on us all, all
And it's so hard, it's so hard
It's so hard, it's so hard
It's so hard, so hard
It's so hard, so hard
It's so hard, it's so hard
