Magic Man

Cold late night so long ago
When I was not so strong you know
A pretty man came to me
Never seen eyes so blue
I could not run away
It seemed we'd seen each other in a dream
It seemed like he knew me
He looked right through me
"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"You don't have to love me yet
Let's get high awhile
But try to understand
Try to understand
Try try try to understand
I'm a magic man."

Winter nights we sang in tune
Played inside the months of moon
Never think of never
Let this spell last forever
Summer over passed to fall
Tried to realized it all
Mama says she's a worried
Growing up in a hurry

"Come on home, girl" mama cried on the phone
"Too soon to lose my baby yet my girl should be at home!"
"But try to understand, try to understand
Try try try to understand
He's a magic man, mama
He's a magic man"

"Come on home, girl" he said with a smile
"I cast my spell of love on you a woman from a child!
But try to understand, try to understand
I'm a magic man!"

Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child)

Heading out this morning into the sun
Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin' one

Warm wind caress her
Her lover it seems
Oh, Annie
Dreamboat Annie my little ship of dreams

Crazy On You

We may still have time
We might still get by
Every time I think about it I want to cry
With the bombs and the devils
And the kids keep coming
Nowhere to breathe easy...no time to be young
But I tell myself that I'm doing alright
There's nothing left to do tonight but go crazy on you

My love is the evening breeze touching your skin
The gentle sweet singing of leaves in the wind
The whisper that calls, after you in the night
And kisses your ear in the early light
You don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
And my love, the pleasure's mine
Let me go crazy on you

Wild man's world is crying in pain
What're you going to do?
I was a willow last night in my dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
I sang you the song that I heard up above
And you keep me alive with your sweet, flowing love

Soul Of The Sea

Today you looked around to my heart's call
This tiny life ain't been strangled after all
Time, time, time, time
Never ask what's become of us
Just dedicate your sorrow
Here and now
To the soul of the sea
And me

Rushin' to me
You turned around to my song's call
You dreamer in the sand
Just lie there laughing til the fall
Kindest lover
I can't stay alone tonight
Bring me all your love
Here and now
Come rushin' to me

Wake up late
Without a smile
Telephone rings
You run like a child
On the street
Into the day
The people I meet
Have nothing to say

No smile
No sorrow
No laughter
No tomorrow
They talk hen to hen
They talk about their men
And practice all the tricks for them
Too soon nightime's coming on
Deep in the darkness feeling alone

No rain
No seed
No dreams
No silence
Far away today
Mama ocean hold me to you
Rock me on your waves
And tell me...
Is it all true?

Time, time, time, time
Never ask what's become of us
Dedicate your sorrow
Here and now
To the soul the sea and me

Dreamboat Annie

Heading out this morning into the sun
Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin' one

Warm wind caress her
Her lover it seems
Oh, Annie
Dreamboat Annie my little ship of dreams

Going down the city sidewalk alone in the crowd
No one knows the lonely one whose head's in the clouds

Sad faces painted over with those magazine smiles
Heading out to somewhere won't be back for a while

White Lightning & Wine

This night's gone, we're moving on
Highway's calling aloud
I bring them in with eyes of sin
It's a down drinkin' freaky crowd
Chew you up and spit you out
Never want to know your name
Don't want to know you but I sure want to show you
Will forget I came
On the world's all mine
White lightning and wine came on so fast
When did I last feel this fine?
White lightning and wine
Sweet little one let me love you some
Take me or leave me alone
The gooder they come, the harder they fall
Turn around you are a nasty joke
Yeah, we all laugh oh, hah, what a gas!
Watching you chew on the bones
In the morning light you didn't look so nice
Guess you'd better hitch hike home

(Love Me Like Music) I'll Be Your Song

These have been quiet days
when was the last time I wanted to sing
last few dying days hanging on - what will they bring?
Even you and me
we keep coming apart
and it's a wrong thing
We goota look right at each other and say it
turn on the radio and play it
and fall in love again
Can you feel the light shine
You now this song's yours and mine
ain't it good to know you've got a place to go
where the melody's fine
Sometimes I'm not so strong
and even now I could be wrong
but if you love me like music
I'll be your song

Lately the day's been grey
and time's been hard
man up in town putting everybody down
watch him play his card
when you get free come on home to me
I'm gonna lay it down
We got love - we've got to feel it and show it
make each other really know it
and fall in love again
we've got to be friends

Sing Child

Sing child sing
Sing child sing
Melody Maker
Giver and taker
Heartbreaker
He want to sing I know
Try it again
Sooner or later
He gonna break down and sing

Holy junkie
Funky monkey
Everybody calls him honey
He gonna sing I know
He don't want to play that game
He gotta play that game
Oh, honey, honey, honey,
You got to come down and sing

Dreamer
Machiner
What will you ever do when you blow a fuse
Don't want to stay here
Honey roll
Sooner or later
You've gotta get down and sing
Sing child

How Deep It Goes

In the quiet afternoon you left and went down into town
And I just watched the empty road behind you
Where the fog lies kissing the mountainside
You want to be sleeping, deep inside
Believing that the hungry world won't find you

Well, that's just fine, that's just fine
You've got to believe and I don't know, I don't know
What I believe anymore
Or whether to leave, or whether to stay
Or what I can say
To make you know
How deep it goes

Somebody turned on the dirty blues
I know you don't like the blues
Cause the words are always the same
And they kind of remind you
Somebody turned the blues on me
I don't like the blues cause I can't see
Through the tears that come and make it hard to find you

Come on down
Come on down
You've got to come lay down here and say those things
Those warm things, right here in my ear
The times that you had that water like wine
So clean and so fine to make me know how deep it goes
Well, that's just fine, that's just fine
You've got to believe and I don't know, I don't know
If I could leave anymore, even though there's a scar
Still fresh from the war, don't think about it no more
Letting new love flow
How deep it goes

Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin' one

No one knows the lonely one whose head's in the clouds
