And I Love You So
And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I've lived till now
I tell them I don't know
I guess they understand
How lonely life has been
But life began again
The day you took my hand
'Round and 'round, the years go 'round and 'round
And many a dream is lost in the nasty city soundâ€¦
Now she's down and out, everyone's above her
Tried everything a gal could try
She takes the notion that nobody loves her
And here's the reason why:
She came to the city like a good gal should
Found a little pad in a bad neighborhood
Castles In The Air
And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you
That I'm tired of castles in the air.
I've got a dream I want the world to share
And castle walls just lead me to despair.
Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky,
A dream come true, I'll live there till I die.
I'm asking you to say my last goodbye.
The love we knew ain't worth another try.
Mornin', Mrs. Campbell
Lovely day today
I heard about the fire
I wonder what the papers say
Let's see now:
Give me fifty shotgun shells
And a hundred feet of rope
Just add that to my bill
Says here there ain't no hope
They all were burned alive
No Reason For Your Dreams
There's no need to find a reason for your dreams
For there is always more to dreaming than there seems to be.
And I'll be thankful if through out my life you dream of me.
It's all that I could ask for while I live.
A dream is such a lovely gift to give.
Ah, da, da.
Your fragile beauty caught me in it's web.
And I am held by every silver strand of love you spin.
Here in a swirl of sleeping circles all my dreams begin.
Dreams that somehow always end with you.
Orphans Of Wealth
There is no time to discuss or debate
What is right, what is wrong for our people.
Time has run out for all those who wait
With bent limbs and minds that are feeble.
And the rain falls and blows through their window
And the snow falls and blows through their door.
And the seasons revolve mid their sounds of starvation.
When the tides rise, they cover the floor.
Ah, it ain't so easy is it? you almost lost your place.
And perhaps you're wondering how you're going to cope with your disgrace.
Well your wealth is well established and your friends were never few,
And all the things they told you of you're finding to be true.
Well if truth can free the guilty while the innocent must die,
Then I respect, respect, respect the coldest lie.
And you talk of human justice while you drive on fancy wheels.
And you push them to their limit just to see how nice it feels.
Well it doesn't really matter if she's living or she's dead,
Every thread of creation is held in position
By still other strands of things living
In an earthly tapestry hung from the skyline
Of smoldering cities, so gray and so vulgar,
As not to be satisfied with their own negativity,
But needing to touch all the living as well.
And every breeze that blows kindly is one crystal breath
We exhale on the blue diamond heaven:
As gentle to touch as the hands of the healer,
Three Flights Up
On the first floorâ€¦ On the first floorâ€¦
On the first floor there's a young girl reeling
Her body's numb and without feeling
As illusions dance on the midnight ceiling
Now she's falling, now she's kneeling
It's almost like she's bowed in prayer
A savior she's about to bear
She screams for help, but no one's thereâ€¦
