2 HEAVEN KNOWS  3:18  (Los Angeles ‘82)

 

Baby I was alone

where no love could find me

with all my dreams behind me

and then you took me home

gave my life some meaning

pulled me through the hardest times

Heaven Knows

I could not live a day through

without loving you

Heaven Knows

I could not live a day through

without loving you

 

Baby you were alone

where no sun could shine through

but with my love to guide you

I pulled you through the clouds

to sail across the ocean

and fly with love’s emotion

 

Heaven Knows

I could not live a day through

without loving you

Heaven Knows

I could not live a day through

without loving you

 

Heaven heaven knows

Heaven heaven knows

Heaven heaven knows

 

Baby it feels like home

to wrap my arms around you

and make sweet love the night through

yes I know how it feels

to bring our love together

through all kinds of weather

 

Heaven Knows

I could not live a day through

without loving you

Heaven Knows

I could not live a day through

without loving you

03-04: WOULDN’T IT BE NICE & IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WHAT YOU NEEDED

Carry the wind behind you

and never look back on that breeze

I know who you really are

you’re not the dreamer

you make yourself out to be

 

I offered you something

but you refused without a second thought

well It Might Have Been What You Needed

to work things out

 

Carry the clouds behind you

and never look back on that fog

I know where the gardens are

where flowers bloom all day

in the summer sun

 

I offered you something

but you refused without a second thought

well It Might Have Been What You Needed

to work things out

 

Who told you you’d last forever they lied

you’ve only today for pleasure

tomorrow none of this might seem right

so take what you need

and leave the rest behind

 

I offered you something

but you refused without a second thought

well baby

It Might Have Been What You Needed

 

Carry the wind…behind you…

Carry the clouds…behind you…

05: HOW LUCKY CAN A LOVER BE

5 HOW LUCKY CAN A LOVER BE  3:49  (Boston ‘77)

 

Sometimes I feel alone

with no direction or home

when all I need is some sleep

and some sweet company

to carry on

 

You bring me joy

you give me love

you bring me happiness

when I’m up and when I’m down

 

How Lucky Can a Lover Be

to have someone like you baby

How Lucky Can a Lover Be

well just look at me

just look at me

 

When all that’s good turns bad

and what should be happy is sad

I know you’ll be there to right

all the wrongs tenderly with a smile

and your hand

 

You bring me joy

you give me love

you bring me happiness

when I’m down and when I’m up

 

How Lucky Can a Lover Be

to have someone like you baby

How Lucky Can a Lover Be

well just look at me

just look at me

06-07: SPEED DATING & WITH FRIENDS TO DRINK

IMG_7197.jpg

6 SPEED DATING  :27  (Ann Arbor ‘74)

7 WITH FRIENDS TO DRINK  2:08  (Ann Arbor ‘74)

 

Don’t go knocking on my door

‘cause it’s still your home you know

you’re still welcomed and loved

as you were before

 

Never think it’s at an end

‘cause that’s when loving friends begin

to care and to hold you at night

when you sleep

 

The setting day marks the time

that the night will shine with rhyme

and your glass will be filled

With Friends to Drink

 

You’re the lover on my mind

livens me up when I think I’m dyin’

there’s more I could say I’m so happy

I’m sittin’ here cryin’

 

All at once I feel ashamed

loose emotions throwing blame

to win and to lose and to love

well it’s all the same

 

The setting day marks the time

that the room will smell of lime

and your glass will be filled with

your glass will be filled with friends

your glass will be filled

With Friends to Drink

 

08: BLUE MOON RISING  4:07  (Boston ‘76)

8 BLUE MOON RISING  4:07  (Boston ‘76)

 

Who’d have thought you would leave me

all alone and faced with the moon

on this dark and lonely evening

I’ll be waiting till dawn or doom

 

So tell me why you are leaving

and won’t you please answer your phone

I don’t find this all so amusing

like pretending that you’re not home

 

I’ve never considered astrology

to tell me how my days will be

but something I read

in the paper this morning said

my stars are crossed

with a Blue Moon Rising

my stars are crossed

with a Blue Moon Rising

 

Once I had more than many

and to you I gave my heart free

there must surely be here a lesson

that I’ve learned hard to some degree

 

So now I wake every morning

and worry ‘bout nothing at all

I just read the words of my life in brief

to see if I’ll rise or I’ll fall

 

I’ve never considered astrology

to tell me how my days will be

but something I read

in the paper this morning said

my stars are crossed

with a Blue Moon Rising

my stars are crossed

with a Blue Moon Rising

my stars are crossed

with a Blue Moon Rising

09-10: MIGHT AS WELL, I CAN’T DANCE & HEADIN’ TOWARD LONELINESS

9 MIGHT AS WELL, I CAN’T DANCE  :58  (Oak Park, MI ‘72)

 

You asked me if I would

I Might As Well I Can’t Dance

portraying all I could

I lost myself in the chance

sleeping while my eyes are open

wondering who am I to be chosen

refusing to believe the temptations

and yet takin’ them in and adjusting

to learning to dance for nothing

 

 

10 HEADIN’ TOWARD LONELINESS  3:32  (Los Angeles ‘80)

 

You stopped and said hello

your smile beside me

mesmerized me wanting me so

but that was long ago

when we were young

and thought our love would grow

how’d we know

 

You’d be walking away from all our dreams

walking away from reason

you’re forcing me to wish I’d never met you

I said it before well I’ll do my best

to bring you happiness

but when you’re walking away from lovin’ me

you’re Headin’ Toward Loneliness

 

You called me up and cried

you swear your love is true

so I greet you arms open wide

I looked into your eyes

they say to trust

to give you one more try

one more lie

 

Now you’re walking away from all our dreams

walking away from reason

you’re forcing me to wish I’d never met you

I said it before well I’ll do my best

to bring you happiness

but when you’re walking away from lovin’ me

you’re Headin’ Toward Loneliness

11: BUT NOT WITH YOU

11 BUT NOT WITH YOU  2:55  (Oak Park, MI ‘78)

 

Much of what I want to say

has been said before tonight

I’m sure in many ways

 

Most of what I feel inside

I’m no stranger to and

I can’t hide it away

though I’ve tried

 

There’ve been times in my life I failed

but still all in all my successes prevailed

and so I learned and grew

from loves I made or lost or saved

 

Now it’s yours I hope to share

as lovers dream of someone to

lean on you’re there

 

Mine is yours as yours is mine

through winter cold

summer rain or shine

till the end of all time

 

And in love how I played the fool

I won all the games though I broke all the rules

but now I feel I’ll work

it out someway because I love you

 

Much of what I want to say

is that it’s all been said

all been done

But Not With You with you

12: A FRIEND ON WHOM YOU CAN RELY

IMG_7228.jpg

12 A FRIEND ON WHOM YOU CAN RELY  3:17  (Ann Arbor ‘75)

 

Take me up to your penthouse room

and let me wipe away your senseless gloom

sentimental teardrops can’t solve

all of the pain you’re going through inside

but a companion next to you just might

 

Send me off into a whirling wind

you know it ain’t so bad when you’ve got a friend

and soon what is will pass us you’ll see

how it so easily fades away in awhile

and it will open up your world to a smile

 

Though it can get cold

when you’re alone lonely

you’ve got A Friend On Whom You Can Rely

 

Take me up to your penthouse room

and let me wipe away your senseless gloom

sentimental teardrops can’t solve

all of the pain you’re going through inside

but a companion next to you just might

 

Though it can get cold

when you’re alone lonely

you’ve got A Friend On Whom You Can Rely
