157 Riverside Avenue
We flew into town on Sunday, had to find a place by Monday
Tried Bridgeport and Westport, 'til we found a place that we thought would do
157 Riverside Avenue.
Saugatuck River's flowin', Mother nature's colors were showin'
So cold, and rainy, we couldn't help feelin' blue
Not enough time, too many things to do. So we just sat back and played some.
5 Men Were Killed Today
Five men were killed today,
Leaving five wives as widows.
Six men they tried to kill.
Maybe one will live to raise his son.
I've tried so hard
To tell you what went wrong.
Been fighting for so many years
For something so very wrong.
When will man ever learn
That happiness is his to be earned?
Standing by the roadside
Old newspaper in my hand.
Reading yesterday's headlines,
Nothing new, I said it's all the same.
I'm the fool of the year and I've been waiting
Twenty five years of anticipating
I've seen changes in my land
People I'm here to tell you,
Can't Fight This Feeling
I can't fight this feeling any longer.
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow.
What started out as friendship,
Has grown stronger.
I only wish I had the strength to let it show.
I tell myself that I can't hold out forever.
I said there is no reason for my fear.
Cause I feel so secure when we're together.
You give my life direction,
Sophisticated lady try'n to change my ways
Just because you're caught in your social maze.
I think it's about time that you realize
Your money and your power's got you mesmerized.
Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on,
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone.
