A Short Overture
(Instrumental)
 
 
Mother's Eyes
Slowly she turns away
Oh, don't look anymore

There's only stillness
No more air can he draw

No time to say goodbye
No last little kiss
No life where bullets fly
And now it comes to this

What's left in her world
The child's gone

Softly she whispers
Where did I go so wrong

My future, my baby
Tell me what's goin' on

No light in Mother's eyes
Nothing you can say
No answers for the whys
She'll ask every day

What's left for the world
The child's gone
 
 
Cryin'
Lately I've been tryin'
To have a word or two
Waitin' for a moment
To get to you

As I've been restrainin'
What I need to say
Silence gets misunderstood
Some way

Now it's time to sit right down
And make my point of view
Otherwise, oh love of mine
I'll fall away from you

Woman, I'm a singer
That's all I'll ever be
Give n' take n' don't complicate
The simple harmonies

There's nothing I need from you
That you should keep from me
Nothing that you hold
Sets you free

And all I have these simple words
That I will give to you
He's the fool who won't reach out
And tries to play it cool

I'm cryin'
Baby I'm cryin'
And it feels like I'm dyin'
'Cos I can't get next to you

I'm cryin'
Baby I'm cryin'
And it feels like I'm dyin'
'Cos I can't get next to you

Darlin' come on and hold me
I need a one and only
Baby hear me when I say

I'm cryin'
Baby I'm cryin'
Feels like I'm dyin'
'Cos I can't get next to you

I'm cryin'
Baby I'm cryin'
Feels like I'm dyin'
'Cos I can't get next to you
 
 
Momma Don't Stop
Well, I never thought I'd see you back
On my side of the railroad tracks
Just blown in from Tokyo
Hangin' out at the rock n' roll show
You're lookin' for some kid to sign
Catchin' jive off the grapevine
"Billboard's" runnin' a picture next week
"Hits" applauds you on your winnin' streak
Never mind you're sleepin' alone
There's always someone else on the phone

So momma don't stop your rock n' roll
You might just find your heart has gone cold

Momma don't stop your rock n' roll
All day long

I'm real impressed with the things that you've done
Look how far this lady has come
Used to be so quiet and sweet
Now your name's all over the street
Used to charge it by the hour
Now you own an apartment tower
It's a shame about your former friends
Everyone now is a means to an end
Never mind you're livin' alone
It's hard to get a scratch on the lovin' jones

So momma don't stop your rock n' roll
You might just find your little lost soul
Momma don't stop your rock n' roll
All night long

It's so hard to be a woman today
To get what you deserve
It's not easy when you work this way
You have to keep a distant reserve

So momma don't stop your rock n' roll
You might just find your heart has gone cold
So momma don't stop your rock n' roll
All night long
 
 
Alone
Tell me which way the wind blows
And of the song it sings
Tell me where did the time go n'
For who the bells ring

Baby, days are so empty now
No promises, no pain
I guess, I guess I realized
I overstayed my day

And I wonder now as I write this down
How it's gonna sound when I'm old
Did I learn to fly. Did I reach the sky
Am I goin' underground

But I know, I know
I can tell you pretty darlin'
What it means to be alone
I know, I know
I can tell you little darlin'
It's no good to be alone

Sometimes as the rain comes down
I feel it wash away my fears
And sometimes when the rain comes down
It's another veil of tears

And I wonder if I missed a turn
On the long and winding road
Did I lose my eyes. Did my radar die
Is it time to crash and burn

But I know, I know
I can tell you without lyin'
I don't want to be alone

And I know, I know
I know the sky is cryin'
And I don't want to be alone

And if I find you out there in the streets
Will you know me the moment our eyes meet
Will you find me. Will I know you

And I wonder if I missed a turn
On the long and winding road
Did I lose my eyes. Did my radar die
Am I gonna crash and burn

And I know, I know
I can tell you pretty darlin'
I don't want to be alone

I know, I know
I know the sky is cryin'
And I don't want to be alone
 
 
All Right
Grew up on promises
Tomorrow will be all right
Held on to my defenses
In fear of the night
Covered my worried head
As she turned out the light
And just as tomorrow comes
Again comes the night
The only comfort I received
All you can do is let it be
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
We'll make it through the night
It's gonna be all right

Took on an education
I learnt to compete
It don't take no qualification
To sleep in the street
There's not much humanity
In this kind of race
How civil is competition
A foot on a face?
And at the time I still believed
A little more juice, I'll be free
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
We'll make it through the night
It's gonna be all right

Now as I take your hand
Show you the stars
Try to explain to you
Who we are
With so little expectation
In this manner of life
All of the complications
The fear in the night
Will you be able to believe
There will be love eventually
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
We'll make it through the night
It's gonna be all right
 
 
Sail Away
Adrift out on an open sea
A life raft seekin' company
Sailing on a sea insane
Rolling with the waves of pain
Chance determines destiny
Tide can be the enemy
When the moon is shining bright
It hangs there like a becon light

Your're looking for a place to stay
A place to leave another day
Water leaves no trace behind
Of all the ways your life unwinds

So sail away
Sail away
Sail away
Sail away

As you come you come alone
All you are is what you know
Dependent on your memory
Remember who you used to be
Reason is a raging wind
Beating on your weathered skin
Confusion is the tidal flow
Pulls you like an undertow

Adrift out on a sea of tears
Navigating by your fears
Searching in the stars above
A way to find your isles of love

So sail away
Sail away
Sail away
Sail away

A sea of faces flow by me
Islands of identity
Isolated constantly
No ones's where he ought to be

So sail away
Sail away
Sail away
Sail away
 
 
Gone with the Wind
My heart is empty
Like cold open ground
Where ghosts & memories
Follow you round
Replacing old friends
No more to be found
All gone their ways
With the new stars in town
All of their laughter
Has drifted away
Gone with the wind
Like yesterday's song
Gone with the wind
Like yesterday's song
Gone
Gone with the wind

There's no sign of the lover
Who pins butterflies
No sign of fair-weather
No sweet soundin' lies

Now I'm a stranger
My eyes are set free
Like a man on a mountain
How I can see
All the ways
Illusions deceive
In a city of prayers
Where no one believes
When all of your dreams have scattered away
Gone with the wind
Like yesterday's song
Gone with the wind
Like yesterday's songs
Gone
Gone with the wind
 
 
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Well I used to work the graveyard
Used to have to paint the stones
Now I clean the farmyard
Have to lick it clean alone

I got a wife and kid
Sharin' an econoline
We keep the sucker hid
Underneath the Hollywood sign

You know I do all right
Oh yea and it's ok
I'd like to kill the light
I'd love to sleep all day

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

Then I used to have a penthouse
Used to have a wife like you
Now I keep the door locked
Her attorney's tryin' to break in too

Everyone's aboard
It's quite the social set
They leave me polaroids
Of everyone I never met

You know they do all right
It's the All-American way
They like to stay all night
The love to drink all day

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

Purple mountain majesty
Crumble into the sea
Spirit of the spacious skies
Shine your grace on me

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
 
 
If I Ever Say a Good Thing
(by Tony Joe White.)
If I ever saw a good thing
Baby it's you
If I ever had a sweet dream
Baby it's you
There ain't nothing else I want to do
But spend my time lovin' you
If I ever saw a good thing
Baby it's you

They say that one time in your life
You'll find the one
Who'll stand beside you
No matter where you go
And I know that must be true
'Cause baby I found you
If I ever saw a good thing
Baby it's you

You know that everybody needs
Someone to love
'Cause it's a lonesome soul
Who walks alone
But I don't know what I'd do

Baby if I didn't have you
'Cause it's a long and lonesome road
To walk alone
If I ever saw a good thing
Baby it's you
If I ever had a sweet dream
Baby it's you
 
 
Call It Rock n'Roll
Well there's somethin' goin' down
Right here in the neighborhood
Somethin' goin' down
Don't know if you really should
Doncha lose your head
I'll make your heart feel good

There's trouble all around
Trouble with the PTA
Tell me whatcha gonna do?
Takin' all our highs away
S'enuff to turn you round
But Momma not today

C'mon little baby
Let's call it rock n' roll
C'mon little honey
Let's call it rock n' roll
Gonna get a good feelin'
Right down to your soul

Now your Papa's gettin' down
Momma sayin' you're no good
Baby it's a shame
It's never really understood
How a dose of rock n' roll
Can make your heart feel good
 
 
All Over Now
Woke up a little too rough
Looking like a quarter
When a dollar ain't enough
This room is just a mess
Nothing's ever working
And I couldn't care less
You know I ain't got no honey
Because I ain't got no money.
Broke up
No good bye
Now it's down to slumming
And living high and dry
So don't go comin' around
No more bringin' me down

There's nothin' left, baby
It's all over now
That's why, can't cry.
Now you've got a ticket
It's all over now

So tough, all her jive
"Need a lot of action just to keep it alive"
Blue moon
Love in June
Nothin' but a promise
Of trouble comin' soon
Ain't got a lover
Who ain't got another
Woke up, just enough
Give you all I oughta
But it never was enough
So don't go comin' around
No more bringin' me down

There's nothin' left, baby
It's all over now

She done me wrong, it's all over town
Now she's gone, her turn to cry
 
 
Love Is a Lie
Free me from this restless curse
That follows me through the dark
Bring back an innocence
A strength to fill my heart
In this world of emptiness
That I have come to know
Love is only a lie
Only a lie, only a lie
Love is only a lie
Only a lie, only a lie
When the promise is broken
When your eyes open
Then the wind whispers and sighs
Love is a lie

My bird of paradise
Colored in blues and gold
She's got a soul on ice
And calculation cold
This bird of avarice
Has left me now I know
Love is only a lie
Only a lie, only a lie
Love is only a lie
Only a lie, only a lie
When the promise is broken
When your eyes are open
When the wind whispers and sighs
Love is a lie

So breathe a last and broken sigh
Oh silent night come now to me
And if I dream of light come down
And be with me and in the dark we will not see
Love is only a lie
Only a lie, only a lie
Love is only a lie
Only a lie, only a lie
When the promise is broken
When your eyes open
When the wind whispers and cries
Love is only a lie, only a lie
 
 
Rock Me
Sweet little baby,
You don't have to go
Little baby,
Tell me you won't go
We'd be so good together
If we had the time
Bein' alone's
A nowhere state of mind
Lovin' ain't no crime, oh no
I see your man ain't here.
He don't care
The way of the night has gone.
We'll move on
Got to find a way
To face another day

I search the world
For someone I'll never find
Someone who ain't the hurtin' kind
If you stay the night.
We'll make the wrong seem right
So come on now...

Rock me
Rock me
Roll me through the night

We'll burn in love tonight

Sweet little baby,
Oh don't you go
You ain't so innocent, I know
I know your heart's like mine, oh yeah
And I will find the time
To make you mine
And if your love goes bad,
If it makes you sad
I'll be back for more
At your door

Before the mornin' light,
We'll burn with love tonight

And when your man don't care,
I will be there
Still be lovin' real good love...

There's nothing left to do,
But make sweet love to you
 
 
Once Bitten Twice Shy
(by Ian Hunter.)
Well the times are gettin' hard for you little girl
I'm a-hummin' and a-strummin' all over God's world
You can't remember when you got your last meal
And you don't know just how a woman feels

You didn't know what rock-n-roll was
Until you met my drummer on a grey tour bus
I got there in the nick of time
Before he got his hands across your state line

Now it's the middle of the night on the open road
And the heater don't work and it's oh so cold
You're lookin' tired you're lookin' kinda beat
The rhythm of the street sure knocks you off your feet

You didn't know how rock-n-roll looked
Until you caught your sister with the guys from the group
Halfway home in the parking lot
By the look in her eye she was giving what she got

My my my, once bitten, twice shy babe
My my my, once bitten, twice shy babe
My my my, once bitten, twice shy babe

Woman you're a mess gonna die in your sleep
There's blood on my amp and my Les Paul's beat
Can't keep you home from messin' around
My best friend told me you're the best lick in town

You didn't know that rock-n-roll burned
So you bought a candle and you lived and you learned
You got the rhythm, you got the speed
Mama's little baby likes it short and sweet

I didn't know you had a rock-n-roll record
Until I saw your picture on another guy's jacket
You told me I was the only one
But look at you now it's dark and you're gone

My my my, once bitten, twice shy
