First LineSong Title
Just got back from a downtown palais where the music was so sweet it knocked me right back in the alley...
You're sailing softly through the sun, in a broken stonage age dawn...
I was searchin' (searchin') on a one-way street, I was hopin' (hopin') for a chance to meet...
Sailin' away on the crest of a wave, its like magic...
Everywhere the sun is shining, all around the world it's shining...
Little darlin' don't you cry, You know I'll try to be there with you by and by...
In this life I've seen everything I can see woman...
You got me runnin' goin' out of my mind, You got my thinkin' that I'm wastin' my time...
You made a fool of me, but those broken dreams have got to end...
Midnight on the water. I saw the ocean's daughter...
(Back-masked) The music is reversible, but time is not! Turn back! Turn back! Turn back...
The city streets are empty now (The lights don't shine no more!) And so the songs are way down low...
Hold on tight to your dream, Hold on tight to your dream...
Away! The joker's closing in! Reform and they will win...
When the day is done and there's nowhere to run, and the people of the city have all lost and won...
First LineSong Title
Got love, that's what you need, I got three or four babies sitting on my knee...
Two drifters on the morning sky, two drifters sailing wide and high...
Working on the road across this great big world, I've been rolling like a stone I never get back home...
Whatever I do, where ever I go, the same afterglow is keeping me low...
Hello. How are you? Have you been alright, through all those lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely nights...
Did you see your friend crying from his eyes today? Did you see him run through the streets and far away...
Sun is shinin' in the sky, there ain't a cloud in sight...
Although the things you've done I wouldn't criticize, I guess you had your way...
It was 9:29, 9:29 back street big city...
I see the lonely road that leads so far away, I see the distant lights that left behind the day...
A moving stream of information that is floating on the wind, the secrets never end...
She cried to the southern wind, about a love that was sure to end...
I used to think she was the greatest thing, I really cared, gave her a diamond ring...
Monday: Late again today, he'd be in trouble though he'd say he was sorry...
Deep waters flow out to the sea, they never needed you or me...
