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
