BABY WELL I   [back to top]

Baby well i need you now

well i need you now
that is why i'm hangin' with you
well i need you now
that is why i'm stickin' with you

baby well i need you now
that is why i'm hangin' with you
well i need you now
that is why i'm hangin' with you
well i need you now
that is why i'm stickin' like glue

I STILL CALL THIS FAILURE   [back to top]

Well the things in this house
Would miss you just as much as me
You read me like a picture on the wall
Well they're parting on our left
And there's fighting on our right
The sounds of breaking down ring thru the nite
But i still call this failure my home
Yes i still call this failure my home

Well they're parting on our left
And there's fighting on our right
The sounds of breaking down ring thru the nite
Don't leave me here with nothing
Even though i've worked with less
We don't get many free rides any more
I'm tired of all of your bright ideas about leaving me alone
I don't think i need that much elbow room
And i still call this failure my home
Yes i still call this failure my home

Well they're parting on our left
And there's fighting on our right
The sounds of breaking down ring thru the nite

WITHOUT YOU

She was a married happy woman
When me and her met
Her life was free and easy
Mine was filled with regret
Without you
Tell me what I'd do?
Had my eyes half open
And I don't know what I'd do

Heard somebody knocking
Back in '42
Saw somebody pretty
But she was not you
Was not you
Tell me what I'd do?
Had my eyes half open
And I don't know what I'd do

Things were really troubled
Back in '64
Had beggars and the governement
Coming to my door
But not you
Tell me what I'd do?
Had my eyes half open
And I don't know what I'd do

I was staring through my window
In the afternoon
I wondered if the rain would come down
Pretty soon
But not you
Tell me what I'd do?
Had my eyes half open
And I don't know what I'd do

EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD

Near that house that's standing down on the corner
Lives a girl who has everything in the world
Shiny things she lives her life in a circle
Many things you take for granted you see
Over here there's more hope than there is wonder
Suckers come and suckers always mis-roll
Over there they work all night until morning
Working hard to turn diamonds back into coal

Left her things just lying here on the table
Thought I'd see when day was done if she'd choose
You or me we always fell for the fables
So suspect there's nothing strange about that
Many thousand reasons to be forgiving
Almost more than there are stars in the sky
Can't they see they wear her down where she's living?
Can't they see she's almost lost her disguise?

I can see that there's a bell in the tower
Ringing out to cut a hole in the day
Reminding me that love is dead by the hour
Line up here you crybabies seems to say
