Hey

the sea was rollin' in slate gray
i looked at you and i looked away
i was cryin'
because i was happy

i didn't want you to see
i was afraid of such mystery
and afraid of losing
so afraid of losing

later on a balcony
we had a good talk and we felt free
i was comin' to you from far away
light was dim but you showed me the way
in your arms all i could say was
hey, baby, hey, baby, hey, baby, hey

Baby

my heart was torn i'd made up my mind
i'd keep to myself and just be kind
and need nothing
just need nothing

love my folks, my kids, my friends
and make it on through to the end
no more suffering
over loving

you get to me like old time religion did
in my heart, when i was a kid
you're sweet gospel music to my ears
you know how to ease all my fears
and from my heart to yours, all i can say is
hey, baby, hey, baby, hey, baby, hey

Hey

and as we go on through the deal
i know that we won't always feel
real wonderful
life ain't like that

but i want to stay right by your side
check out the view, enjoy the ride
together
with all our loved ones

i want to plant a little garden with you, now
take care of a piece of the earth somehow
and tend it when we're old and gray and
try to straighten up and say, well
i'm so glad to see you today
hey, baby, hey, baby, hey, baby, hey

Dirty

i met my love by the gas works wall
dreamed a dream by the old canal
i kissed my girl by the factory wall
dirty old town

clouds are drifting across the moon
cats are prowling on their beat
spring's a girl from the streets at night
dirty old town

Old Town

i heard a siren from the docks
saw a train set the night on fire
i smelled the spring on the smoky wind
dirty old town

i'm gonna make me a big sharp axe
shining steel tempered in the fire
i'll chop you down like an old dead tree
dirty old town

i met my love by the gas works wall
dreamed a dream by the old canal
i kissed my girl by the factory wall
dirty old town

I'm Not The Man

i'm not the man you think i am
i'm not that kind of guy
beneath this sleek exterior
there's less than meets the eye

i'm just what you've been looking for
your wildest dream come true
i'm not the man you think i am
but i'm the man for you

i'm on important business
i'm late for my premiere
i'm doing you a favor
just by being here

You Think I Am

surely you can buy a drink
for someone so renowned
i'm not the man you think i am
but i'm the man you've found

i'm burning with indifference
i'm sleeping with desire
i'm selling snow to eskimos
i'm preaching to the choir

my past is catching up to me
my chips are coming due
i'm not the man you think i am
but i'm the man for you

Strong

god, i feel like hell tonight
tears of rage i cannot fight
i’d be the last to help you understand
are you strong enough to be my man?

nothing’s true and nothing’s right
so let me be alone tonight
cause you can’t change the way i am
are you strong enough to be my man?

lie to me
i promise i’ll believe
lie to me
but please don’t leave

Enough

i have a face i cannot show
i make the rules up as i go
it’s try and love me if you can
are you strong enough to be my man?

when i’ve shown you that i just don’t care
when i’m throwing punches in the air
when i’m broken down and i can’t stand
will you be strong enough to be my man?

lie to me
i promise i’ll believe
lie to me
but please don’t leave

Tous

tous les garçons et
les filles de mon âge
se promènent dans la rue
deux par deux
tous les garçons et
les filles de mon âge
savent bien ce que c'est
d'etre heureux

et les yeux dans les yeux et
la main dans la main
ils s'en vont amoureux
sans peur du lendemain
oui mais moi
je vais seule par les rues
l'âme en peine
oui mais moi
je vais seule
car personne ne m'aime

mes jours comme mes nuits
sont en tous points pareils
sans joies et pleins d'ennuis
personne ne murmure
"je t'aime" à mon oreille

Les Garçons Et Les Filles

tous les garçons et
les filles de mon âge
font ensemble des projets d'avenir
tous les garçons et
les filles de mon âge
savent très bien
ce qu'aimer veut dire

mes jours comme mes nuits
sont en tous points pareils
sans joies et pleins d'ennuis
oh! quand donc pour moi
brillera le soleil?

comme les garçons et
les filles de mon âge
connaîtrais-je bientot
ce qu'est l'amour?
comme les garçons et
les filles de mon âge
je me demande
quand viendra le jour

où les yeux dans ses yeux
et la main dans sa main
j'aurai le coeur heureux
sans peur du lendemain
le jour où je n'aurai plus
du tout l'âme en peine
le jour où moi aussi j'aurai
quelqu'un qui m'aime

Fools


Fools In Love

fools in love, well are there any other kinds of lovers?
fools in love, is there any other kind of pain?

everything you do, everywhere you go now
everything you touch, everything you feel
everything you see, everything you know now
everything you do, you do it for your baby
love your baby, love your baby
love your baby, love

fools in love, are there any creatures more pathetic?
fools in love, never knowing when they've lost the game

fools in love they think they're heroes
'cause they get to feel no pain
i say fools in love are zeros
i should know, i should know
because this fool's in love again

fools in love, gently hold each others hands forever
fools in love, gently tear each other limb from limb

Inara George

Fools Work

life can be hard, but it can be good to you
saving all your money like a fool
but your know better
it can be cruel
listen awhile, and i will sing to you
tear apart my body and you’ll see
my heart is beating
and so i’m free

i’ve been good to you, i’ve been good to you
what have i put through? no, i’ve been good to you
haven’t i been good to you?

take up your hands
lift them off your eyes
couldn’t it be wrong to think you’re mad?
with such a face now
how long and sad
i learned way, i learned away from you
from walking on a line, i keep some poise
but i’m all wrong now
i make no noise?

i’ve been good to you, i’ve been good to you
what have i put through? no, i’ve been good to you
haven’t i been good to you?
