the best of times

tonight’s the night we’ll make history, honey, you and i
and i’ll take any risk to tie back the hands of time
and stay with you here tonight
i know you feel these are the worst of times
i do believe it’s true
when people lock their doors and hide inside
rumor has it it’s the end of paradise
but i know, if the world just passed us by
baby i know, you wouldn’t have to cry


the best of times are when i’m alone with you
some rain some shine, we’ll make this a world for two
our memories of yesterday will last a lifetime
we’ll take the best, forget the rest
and someday we’ll find these are the best of times
these are the best of times

the headlines read ’these are the worst of times’
i do believe it’s true
i feel so helpless like a boat against the tide
i wish the summer winds could bring back paradise
but i know, if the world turned upside down
baby, i know you’d always be around

the best of times are when i’m alone with you
some rain some shine, we’ll make this a world for two
our memories of yesterday will last a lifetime
we’ll take the best, forget the rest
and someday we’ll find these are the best of times
these are the best of times

and
so my friends we’ll say goodnight for time has claimed it’s prize
but tonight will always last
as long as we keep alive memories of paradise...

crystal ball

i used to like to walk the straight and narrow line
i used to think that everything was fine
sometimes i'd like to sit and gaze for days through sleepless dreams
all alone and trapped in time

i wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me
or am i even in it's mind at all
perhaps i'll get a chance to look ahead and see
soon as i find myself a crystal ball

tell me, tell me where i'm going
i don't know where i've been
tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
and then tell me again
my heart is breaking, my body's aching
and i don't know where to go
tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
i've just got to know

crystal ball
there's so many things i need to know
crystal ball
there's so many things i've got to know
crystal ball

if you should see me walking
through your dreams at night
would you please direct me
where i ought to be
i've been looking for a crystal ball
to shed the light
to find a future in me...

crystal ball
there's so many things i need to know
crystal ball
there's so many things i've got to know
crystal ball

renegade

oh mamma i'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
lawman has put an end to my running
and i'm so far from my home
oh mamma i can hear your crying you're so scared and all alone
hangman is coming down from the gallows
and i don't have very long

the jig is up the news is out they've finally found me
the renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
never more to go astray
this will be the end today of the wanted man

oh mamma i've been years on the lamb
and had a high price on my head
lawman said get him dead or alive
now it's for sure he'll see me dead
dear mamma i can hear you crying
you're so scared and all alone
hangman is coming down from the gallows
and i don't have very long

the jig is up, the news is out
they finally found me
the renegade who had it made
retrieved for a bounty
never more to go astray
the judge'll have revenge today
on the wanted man

the time is drawing near
my train is going, i see it in your eyes
the love, the need, your tears
but i'll be lonely without you
and i'll need your love to see me through
so please believe me, my heart is in your hands
and i'll be missing you.

cause you know it's you Babe
whenever i get weary and i've had enough
feel like giving up

giving me the courage and the strength i need
please believe that it's true
babe, i love you.

cause i'll be missing you

suite madame blue

time after time i sit and i wait for your call
i know i'm a fool but what can i say
whatever the price i'll pay for you, madame blue
once long ago, a word from your lips and the world turned around
but somehow you've changed, you're so far away
i long for the past and dream of the days with you, madame blue

suite madame blue, gaze in your looking glass
you're not a child anymore
suite madame blue, the future is all but past
dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
you conquered the world and more ....heaven's door

america...

red white, and blue, gaze in your looking glass
you're not a child anymore
red, white, and blue, the future is all but past
so lift up your heart, and make a new start
and lead us away from here

come sail away

i'm sailing away
set an open course for the virgin sea
cause I've got to be free
free to face the life that's ahead of me
on board, i'm the captain, so climb aboard
we'll search for tomorrow on every shore
and i'll try, oh lord i'll try, to carry on

i look to the sea
reflections in the waves spark my memory
some happy, some sad,
i think of childhood friends
and the dreams we had
we lived happily forever, so the story goes
but somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
but we'll try best that we can to carry on

a gathering of angels appeared above my head
they sang to me this song of hope
and this is what they said
they said come sail away, come sail away
come sail away with me lads
come sail away

i thought that they were angels
but to my surprise
we climbed aboard their starship
we headed for the skies
singing come sail away, come sail away
come sail away with me lads
come sail away
