Across The Universe
[Written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney]
[Originally performed by The Beatles in the album "Let It Be"]
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away
Across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me
Can You Hear Me
Once we were lovers, can they understand?
Closer than others I was your, I was your man
Donít talk of heartaches, ohh, I remember them all
When Iím checking you out one day, to see if Iím Faking it all
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me inside?
Fame, (fame) makes a man take things over
Fame, (fame) lets him loose, hard to swallow
Fame, (fame) puts you there where things are hollow
Fame, it's not your brain, it's just the flame
That burns your change to keep you insane (sane)
Fame, (fame) what you like is in the limo
They pulled in just behind the fridge
He lays her down, he frowns
Gee my lifes a funny thing, am I still too young?
He kissed her then and there
She took his ring, took his babies
It took him minutes, took her nowhere
Heaven knows, she'd have taken anything, but
She wants the young american
