Whisper My Name

Travel with me if you choose
Into a land of notions
Through the ruins of yesteryear
Set yer mind in motion
Be beside me win or lose
I will no forsake thee
I must do, so must you
Now will you go with me
I will build a home for you
To keep you warm each winter
Lemon lilies at your door
To give you in September
I will take you as you stand
I promise to defend thee
I must do, so must you
Now will you go with me
 
Whisper my name as you pass through my life
Whisper my name when you fall
I'm just a dusty old mem'ry ya trust
I'll be close by when you call
 
Give and take ain't always so
Seeing is believing
Down and out don't stop the show
Staying is not leaving
What we say ain't always so
But I won't deceive thee
I must do, so must you
Now will you go with me
 
Talk to me, run to me, whisper my name
Don't waste your love makin' friends
We've both had enough of that wonderful stuff
It's too easy to sin
 
Travel with me if you choose
Into a land of notions
Through the ruins of yesteryear
Set yer mind in motion
Be beside me win or lose
I will no forsake thee
I must do, so must you
Now will you go with me
 
Travel with me if you choose
I promise to protect thee
I must do, so must you
Now will you go with me
Now will you go with me
 

On the High Seas

Was it someone she met that's so hard to forget
Was it some kind of an ocean of changes
I don't remember where she said she would be
And since I don't know, let me guess
Was it somewhere in Michigan or the Lake of the Woods
Up in old Montreal or Toronto the good
Somewhere in Reno or somewhere in Rome
And when all is said and done
Will she leave me alone
 
I don't want to get so low
And as for my sadness, it comes and it goes
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas
 
Was it up in Hornpayne where the trains run on time
Was she drinking champagne when she made up her mind
North of the border or down in South Bend
And when all is said and done
Is there no rainbow's end
 
I don't want to own the key
To some ghostly mansion where souls are set free
I don't remember where she said she would go
Straight for the highway or down the low road
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas
 

Sea of Tranquility

I live in the light of the bright silver moon
I'll take you off sailing from midnight till noon
I'll show the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen see
I live in the shade of a forest of green
In the wildest of woodlands that you've ever seen
There's rabbits and quail and tender young snails
As brown as the seaweed on old rusty nails
 
There's fireflies dancing in the cool evening breeze
There's love and romancin' as nice as you please
There's otters and frogs and spotted ground hogs
And wiley old weasels in rotted out logs
 
There's rivers of rainbow and grey mountain trout
And little dark holes where the varmints hang out
There's foxes and hares in traps and in snares
And lots of bald eagles so you'd better take care
 
So if you've got the time and you'd like to pass by
Come down around midnight and give us a try
We'll show you the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen to see
 

Daisy Doo

Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Her name is Daisy (Daisy)
She drives me crazy (crazy)
Well, I need her kind of loving, man!
 
I own a gal, she's mine all mine
She got perfume like a turpentine
She got a shape like a penny match
She like to tear and kick and scratch
Her name is Daisy (Daisy)
She drives me crazy (crazy)
Well, I need her kind of loving, man!
 
She went around with a Texas cat
He drove around in a big Cadillac
Smashed up his Caddy when I cut him out
Now all he does is scream and shout
 
She got a head, daddy, like a tack
Her head of hair like an old haystack
Although her shoe is number nine
I think her love is mighty fine
Her name is Daisy (Daisy)
She drives me crazy (crazy)
Well, I need her kind of loving, man!
 
She went around with a Texas cat

Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy Doo

Cabaret

All I can see is the sea and the sky
And the sky is blue and the sea is green
Yesterday's a cabaret
Gowns of satin on ladies gay
 
Yesterday's a cabaret
Sounds of laughter on faces grey
Yesterday's a carousel
Catch the ring and all will be well
 
From the coast of California
Up to the Oregon border
I've thumbed a thousand miles I guess
Sitting in a roadside diner
The big trucks rolling by
I don't seem to know at times what's best
 
And still I'd like to tell her
That I miss her so
In north Ontario
 
If you're driving east to Reno
Or north to Mendocino
I hope you find your rainbow's end
This highway is my rainbow
And though I might regret it
I'm so glad I said it way back when
 
And still I'd like to tell her
That I miss her so
In north Ontario
 
And still I'd like to tell her
That I miss her so
In north Ontario
 

Heaven Help the Devil

In this land of chance, do we know right from wrong?
Even at a glance we know the road is long
We don't owe a single thing to anyone
 
Most of us do not believe in come what may
Everything we fought for was in vain, they say
Even when called upon to throw our lives away
 
We have been captured by the thieves of the night
Held for ransom, if you please
Heaven help the devil, may he have a few unpleasant memories
 
In these times of trial and uncertainty
I have thought: What does this freedom mean to me,
Is it just some long forgotten fantasy?
 
Our love for each other may not be explained
We live in a world where tears must fall like rain
But most of us don't wish to cause each other pain.
 
We have been captured by the thieves of the night
Held for ransom, if you please
Heaven help the devil, may he have a few unpleasant memories.
 
To every unsung hero in the universe
To those who roam the skies and those who roam the earth
To all good men of reason, may they never thirst
 
We have wings to guide us through the timeless sea
And faith that will remain through all eternity
We try to be helpful to the ones in need
 
Yet we have been captured by the thieves of the night
Held for ransom, if you please
Heaven help the devil, may he have a few unpleasant memories
Heaven help the devil, may he have a few unpleasant memories
 

I'm Not Supposed to Care

I think you have somebody waiting
Outside in the rain to take you away
You got places to go, you got people to see
Still I'm gonna miss you
But anyway
 
I wish you good spaces in
The far away places you go
If it rains or it snows may
You be safe and warm and never grow old
And if you need somebody sometime
You know I will always be there
I'll do it although I'm not supposed to care
 
I'll give you the keys to
My flying machine, if you'd like
I will show you the light and when you call
I'm gonna come to you
And when you find someone who loves you,
I'll know you would treat me the same
Just lie there, you're not supposed to care
 
I think you have somebody waiting
Outside in the rain to take you away.
That's some kind of a game
Still I'm glad it came down
To the final round
But anyway
 
If you think you need someone who needs you,
You know I will always be there
I'll do it although I'm not supposed to care
I'll do it although I'm not supposed to care
 

Too Late for Prayin'

It was only yesterday
When I heard the teacher say
Patiently, one and two make three
We were children, you and me
Let us pray for the ones they call
The children of today
 
Nothin' left but promises
Nothin' much is certain
All we see is want and need across the board,
Why thank you, Lord
We're livin' in the glory of your care
Skies of blue have all turned brown
To the sound of sighin'
Lord abide, let us stem the tide
Of broken dreams
Sometimes you seem to tell us
It's too late for prayin'
 
See the ocean wild and blue
Think of all that's in her
She will not surrender to the likes of us,
But then she must
They tell us, wise men tell us, it's too late
For each child with eyes that smile
There'll be ten more cryin'
Lord abide, let us stem the time
Of helplessness
But then I guess we're livin'
Is it too late for tryin'?
 
Nothin' here but grains of sand
Nothin' much worth savin'
Guess we've all got problems of our own to bear,
And still we share
Tomorrow could get better than today
To the ones who've loved in vain
Will ya be beholden?
Lord abide, let us stem the tide
Of broken dreams
Sometimes ya seem to tell us
It's too late for prayin'
 

Affair on 8th Avenue

The perfume that she wore was from some little store
On the down side of town
And it lingered on long after she'd gone
I remember it well
 
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin
And then we played a game only she could win
 
Her long flowing hair came softly undone
And it lay all around
And she brushed it down as I stood by her side
In the warmth of her love
 
And our fingers entwined like ribbons of light
And we came through the doorway somewhere in the night
And she told me a riddle I'll never forget
Then left with the answer I've never found yet
 
'How long', said she, 'can a moment like this
Belong to someone?'
What's wrong, what is right, when to live or to die
We must almost be born
So if you should ask me what secrets I hide
That I'm only your lover, don't make me decide

Never Too Close

I remember when best friends were jealous lovers
Lyin' warm asleep beneath the covers
Dreamin' of belonging to each other
And so we tried, never too close
Never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried, but that is alright
We meant no one no harm
 
I remember when best friends were not mistaken
Long before that freedom was forsaken
Learnin' 'bout all the good things
In the world worth believin'
And so we tried, never too close
Never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried, but that is alright
We meant no one no harm
 
I remember when jealous lovers would stick together
When the days were warm and the nights more tender
When the bonds of truth were not made to measure
And so we tried, never too close
Never too near, dyin' in time
And so we cried but that is alright
We meant no one no harm
 
Try, try as you will
Followin' dreams never fulfilled
And so we cried, but that is alright
We meant no one no harm
