Shine a Little Love

Although the things you've done I wouldn't criticize.
I guess you had your way.
You see I gotta make you understand.
I know it sounds a foolish thing to say.
But it don't matter baby 'cos' today's another day.

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see.

Remember, tonight we're gonna run till dawn
Remember, tonight we're gonna say.
We'll never stop we got a good thing goin' on.
I know you've heard it all before.
But I really need you darlin' every day I need you more.

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see.

Can you understand.(Yes I understand) Can you feel it's right.
(I know it is) Will you be the same. (I'll do it all again).

It's been a year now and it's getting so much better.
You came home without a word.
Though everybody said you'll soon forget her.
Thay couldn't see and they just didn't understand.
And lookin' in the mirror there were fools at either hand.

Can you understand.(Yes I understand) Can you feel it's right.
(I know it is) Will you be the same. (I'll do it all again).

How many days had I been waiting there to tell you.
I really can't believe.
We're walkin' out into the world tonight.
We'll do it all again until the break of light.
And the feelin' in your heart will soon be shinin' in your eyes

You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life
You shine a little love on my life and let me see.

Confusion

Everywhere the sun is shining. 
All around the world it's shining. 
But cold winds blow across your mind. 
Confusion — it's such a terrible shame. 
Confusion — you don't know what you're sayin'. 
You've lost your love and you just can't carry on. 
You feel there's no-one there for you to lean on. 

Every night you're out there darlin'. 
You're always out there runnin'. 
And I see that lost look in your eyes. 
Confusion, I don't know what I should do. 
Confusion, I leave it all up to you. 
You've lost your love and you just can't carry on. 
You feel there's no-one there for you to lean on. 

Dark is the road you wander. 
And as you stand there under. 
The starry sky, you feel sad inside. 
Confusion, you know it's drivin' me wild. 
Confusion, it comes as no big surprise. 
You've lost your love and you just can't carry on. 
You feel there's no-one there for you to lean on.

Need Her Love

She gives me love that I could never hope to have, 
She tells me that she needs me,she tells me that she's glad, 
And if she goes away, I'm like someone who's left out in the rain, 
I need, I need her, I need her love. 

She came in from the west, a summer breeze I couldn't rest, 
I had to take a fast train, to be there by her side, 
She made me feel so good, she made it like it should be all the time 
I need, I need her, I need her love. 

Just when I was thinkin' of her, she came along and made me want her. 
I need her love, I need her love, I need her love. 

If she goes away, I'm like someone who's left out in the rain, 
I need, I need her, I need her love. 

The boast that sail, the planes that fly, she is with me. 
I wonder if she wonders, if this is all for real, 
I couldn't stand to see her cry because of me, that would be sad. 
I need, I need her, I need her love. 

She tells me everything, she makes me smile, she tries to sing, 
But never shares her suffering, if things are going wrong, 
She makes it like a dream, if things are as they seem the 
world is good. 

I need her love, I need her love, I need her love.

The Diary of Horace Wimp

Monday: Late again, today, he'd be in trouble though 
he'd say he was sorry, he'd have to hurry out the bus. 

Tuesday: Horace was so sad, he'd never had a girl that he 
could care for, and if he was late once more, he'd be out. 
  
Don't be afraid, just knock on the door, 
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'. 
Then a voice from above said —
"Horace Wimp, this is your life, 
Go out and find yourself a wife. 
Make a stand and be a man, 
And you will have a great life plan."

Wednesday: Horace met a girl, she was small and she 
was very pretty, he thought he was in love, he was afraid. 

Thursday: Asks her for a date, the cafe down the street 
tomorrow evening, his head was reeling, 
when she said "Yes O.K." 
  
Don't be afraid, just knock on the door, 
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'. 
Then a voice from above said —
"Horace Wimp, this is your life, 
Go out and find yourself a wife. 
Make a stand and be a man, 
And you will have a great life plan."

Friday: Horace,this is it,he asks the girl if maybe they 
could marry,when she says "gladly." Horace cries. 

Sunday: Everybody's at the church, when Horace 
rushes in and says "Now here come my wife 
for the rest of my life." and she did. 
  
Don't be afraid, just knock on the door, 
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'. 
Then a voice from above said —
"Horace Wimp, this is your life, 
Go out and find yourself a wife. 
Make a stand and be a man, 
And you will have a great life plan."

Last Train to London

It was 9-29, 9-29 back street big city. 
The sun was going' down, there was music all around 
It felt so right. 

It was one of those nights, one of those nights when 
you feel the world stop turnin', you were standing 
There, there was music in the air. I should have been 
Away, but I knew I'd have to stay. 
  
Last train to London, just headin' out, 
Last train to London, just leavin' town. 
But I really want tonight to last forever 
I really wanna be with you. 
Let the music play on down the line tonight.

It was one of those nights, one of those nights when 
You feel the fire is burnin', everybody was there, 
Everybody to share, it felt so right. 

There you were on your own, lookin' like you were 
The only one around, I had to be with you, 
Nothin' else that I could do, 
I should have been away, but I knew I'd have to say. 
  
Last train to London, just headin' out, 
Last train to London, just leavin' town. 
But I really want tonight to last forever 
I really wanna be with you. 
Let the music play on down the line tonight.

Underneath a starry sky, time was still but hours 
Must really have rushed by, I didn't realize 
But love was in your eyes I really should have 
Gone, but love went on and on... 
  
Last train to London, just headin' out, 
Last train to London, just leavin' town. 
But I really want tonight to last forever 
I really wanna be with you. 
Let the music play on down the line tonight.

Midnight Blue

I see the lonely road that leads so far away,
I see the distant lights that left behind the day
But what I see is so much more than I can say
And I see you midnight blue.

I see you cryin' now you've found a lot of pain,
And what you're searchin' for can never be the same,
But what's the difference cos' they say what's in a name.
And I see you midnight blue.

I will love you tonight, and I will stay
By your side, lovin' you, I'm feelin' midnight blue.

I see you standing there far out along tha way,
I want to touch you but the night becomes the day,
I count the words that I am never gonna say
And I see you midnight blue.

I will love you tonight, and I will stay
By your side, lovin' you, I'm feelin' midnight blue.

Can't you feel the love that I'm offering you,
Can't you see how it's meant to be,
Can't you hear the words that I'm saying to you,
Can't you believe like I believe,
It's only one and one it's true
Still I see you midnight blue.

I see beautiful days and I feel beautiful ways
Of loving you, everything's midnight blue.

I will love you tonight, and I will stay
By your side, lovin' you, I'm feelin' midnight blue.

On the Run

Whatever I do, where-ever I go, the same afterglow 
Is keepin' me low, don't wanna lose it, 
But don't wanna stay here too long. 

They see you go by, I tell you no lie, 
You're up in the sky, make everyone cry, 
Don't wanna lose it, but don't wanna stay around here. 
  
I'm on the run again 
But it's like what they say when it happens this way 
You gotta do it again and again.

I hear them talkin' and they go on and on, they think that 
Nothing is wrong, and so they just carry on about you, 
Don't wanna lose it, but I gotta move out of here. 

I see them waiting there for most of the day, I known 
You asked them to stay but they just won't go away. 
Don't wanna lose it, but I gotta do it again. 
  
I'm on the run again 
But it's like what they say when it happens this way 
You gotta do it again and again.

I know it ain't real, but when you are near, 
You're saying the things that I wanna hear. 
Don't wanna lose it, but I gotta do it again. 
  
I'm on the run again 
But it's like what they say when it happens this way 
You gotta do it again and again.

Wishing

Little darlin', don't you cry, 
You know I'll try to be there with you by and by 
When everything is going wrong now don't you cry. 
I'm wishin'. 

Little darlin', far away, 
I see the world go rollin' by my window pane, 
But I can only wish that I was there again. 
I'm wishin'. 
  
I wish that everything was cold, 
I wish you were here to hold, I'm wishin'.

Little darlin',the night is long, 
I thought I'd be back now I must have got it wrong 
You and California call me in this song. 
I'm wishin'. 
  
I wish that everything was cold, 
I wish you were here to hold, I'm wishin'.

Little darlin' I see you, you're cryin' in the sun 
I gotta be with you, 
I'm gonna be with there soon I'll make it all come true. 
I'm wishin'. 
  
I wish that everything was cold, 
I wish you were here to hold, I'm wishin'.

Don't Bring Me Down

You got me runnin' goin' out of my mind, 
You got me thinkin' that I'm wastin' my time. 
Don't bring me down, no no no no no, 
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor 
Don't bring me down. 

You wanna stay out with your fancy friends. 
I'm tellin' you it's go to be the end, 
Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no, 
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor 
Don't bring me down. 
  
Don't bring me down, grroosss 
Don't bring me down, grroosss 
Don't bring me down, grroosss 
Don't bring me down.

What happend to the girl I used to known, 
You let your mind out somewhere down the road, 
Don't bring me down, no no no no no, 
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor 
Don't bring me down. 

You're always talkin' 'bout your crazy nights, 
One of these days you're gonna get it right. 
Don't bring me down, no no no no no, 
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor 
Don't bring me down. 
  
Don't bring me down, grroosss 
Don't bring me down, grroosss 
Don't bring me down, grroosss 
Don't bring me down.

You're lookin' good just like a snake in the grass, 
One of these days you're gonna break your glass. 
Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no, 
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor 
Don't bring me down. 

You got me shakin' got me runnin' away 
You get me crawlin' up to you everyday, 
Don't bring me down, no no no no no, 
I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor 
Don't bring me down.
