Lost Tracks Lyrics

DARKNESS AND THE NIGHT

A million tears go by

In the darkness of the night

I can hear them cry

but they won't stand up and fight

 

But it's gone

The darkness and the night

There's a new dawn

And it’s gone,gone, gone, gone,gone

I can see the light

 

Seven years before

Was a little young girl in my life

I woke up and found I needed more

Til I found myself in the night

 

But it's gone

The darkness and the night

There's a new dawn

And it’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

I can see the light

 

Seven years before

Was a little young girl in my life

I woke up and found I needed more

Til I found myself in the night

 

But it's gone

The darkness and the night

There's a new dawn,

And it’s gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

I can see the light

THE BEGGAR

Do you fear the beggar who fits at your gate

Beard feathered with fears of now

Though he smiles softly with his arrows of fate

Still his life is wearied with fears of now

                                   

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

When he wants it now

 

See his age still offset

He the gate open and slowly he flies

See his habit tattered his shame cheek pale

Looks proudly waving in his air

 

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

When he wants it now

 

Do you, do you

 

Feel the beggar fear of him now

Feel the beggar fear of him now

 

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

When he wants it now

 

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

Do you fear the beggar

 

Do you

 

Fear of him now

I LIVE FOR TODAY

Well, I’m never going off in a hurry

I don’t wear buckle shoes

People around me they seem to worry

I’ve got nothing to lose

People there with their long hair

Are hip and grooving cool

Way down San Francisco

If you only knew

 

Walk the streets in the city

Any time night or day

People fussing trying to be pretty

Watching what they say

 

Hey! I’m never jealous

When I hear someone say

Stop worrying how we’re looking

Let’s live for today

 

Well I never read

What I should be doing

Nothing gets in my way

I’ve got good things going

 

I live for today

I live for today

I live for today

I live for today

I live for today

I live for today

1400 Miles

1400 Miles and too many ways from home

If I didn't have to earn these dollars, we'd be spending some time alone

Drivindown the highway, you’re always on my mind

I tried callin you from Minnesota,but I got a busy line

 

And it's takin too much of my time

It's takin too much of my time

It's takin too much of my time

It's takin too much of my time

Going down this road

                                   

Miles turn into years as you go down the road

A man’s self-worth is measured in silver and gold

High in this airplane, seems like I’m always in flight

Tried callin her from Dallas, and when I got her on the line, and she said

 

Takin too much of my time

You’ve takin too much of my time

You’re takin too much of my time

You’re takin too much of my time

Going down this road

 

One of these days she’ll stop cryin

Her bags packed for parts unknown

Inside her heart she is dying

Before then find a way, the money’s not important

And I got to get away

Before then find a way, the money’s not important

And I got to get away

Off of this road

Away, off of this road

 

Well I'm tiredand it’s gettinold

And it’s taking too much of my time on this road

UPON THE STREET

I can see a thousand miles, farther than yesterday

I can see a rooftop, made out of clay

I’ve made my mind up

And I want to climb up, climb up, climb up, and see today

 

I can hear a bird sing

Where I hadn’t before

I can hear the rainfall, and I’ll tell you more

I can see the sunshine

And I’ll tell you it’s mine, it’s mine, it’s minetoday

 

And I can see people, they're standing everywhere

Upon the street, and in the square

 

I can hear people laugh

That aren’t there

I can see money left, but what do I care

I’ve made my mind up,and I want to climb up, climb up, climb up and see today

 

Awwwww-----awwww---------awwwwwawwwww

Whooowhooowhooo

WHITE HORSE

Sing all hail to the man on the white horse

Brave strong leader fear the dark not

Rode into the lair of what he knew not

His men were slaughtered in the face of his worth

 

See the man ride off to war

See his horse falter as death claims one more, as death claims one more

 

Sing all praise to the man on the black horse

Brave strong leader who loved the light not

Rode into the lair of what he knew not

The lamb was slaughtered in the face of his mirth

 

Not on CD:

SEE THE MANRIDE OFF TO WAR

SEE HIS HORSE FALTERAS DEATH CLAIMS ONE MORE

SING YOUR SONGS-OF HISTORY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN

HIS CHILDREN ARE WAITINGA LIFETIME TO BEGIN

MISS GRIMES

Sister, brother, zookeeper, mother

Gotta find miss grimes

Salesmans daughter, banker, potter

Gotta find miss grimes

 

She knows everything most certainly

Close your eyes and you will see

Gotta find miss grimes

 

Elephant, giraffe, people who laugh

Gotta find miss grimes

Children at the zoo

If only they knew

Gotta find miss grimes

 

She knows everything most certainly

Close your eyes and you will see

Gotta find miss grimes

 

Look around below and above

Spend your time looking for love

Life is flyingpassing you by

While you're seaching for the next big high

Gotta find miss grimes

 

Sister, brother, zookeeper, mother

Gotta find miss grimes

Salesmans daughter, banker, potter

Gotta find miss grimes

 

She knows everything most certainly

Close your eyes and you will see

Gotta find miss grimes

 

Gotta find miss grimes

Gotta find miss grimes

Gotta find miss grimes

I found a new world

I found a new world

Being with you

It's not the cruel world

That i once knew

 

I'm not making a proclamation

All i'm doing is sayin

I found a new world

When i found you

 

It's hard to reason

What life can be

Until your true love

And you can see

 

An old man sighing

A new born baby crying

This is the true world

It's got to be

 

I'm not making a proclamation

All i'm doing is sayin

I found a new world

When i found you

When i found you

When i found you

Mr. Biological man

Mr. Biological man

Try and help me understand

What this crazy feeling inside

Everytime i see her walk by

 

Mr. Man, mr. Man

Mr. Man, biological man

 

It isn't simple anatomy

It's something just keeps ailing me

Whether i'm home or whether i'm gone

It just keeps persisting on, mr. Man---mr. Man

 

I don't know what makes me feel this way

Her kiss takes the pain away

And when i'm by myself

I tell you i need help

 

Mr. Biological man

Try and help me understand

What this crazy feeling inside

Everytime i see her walk by

 

Mr. Man, mr. Man

Mr. Man, mr. Man

Mr. Man, mr. Man

Mr. Man

Flanders fields

Let me show you

A lovely place in Flanders

Lonely people, waiting for you to gather

 

And you wonder

Why limp watches are hanging

On charred tree stumps

On charred tree stumps

 

Look around and see

Where love and hate has left them

Tell yourselves that you won’t forget them

When you return, raise up your voices

To anyone who will hear, hear

 

And you wonder

Why limp watches are hanging 

On charred tree stumps

On charred tree stumps

 

Let me show you

A lovely place in Flanders

Lonely people, waiting for you to gather

 

And you wonder

Why limp watches are hanging

On charred tree stumps

On charred tree stumps

On charred tree stumps

On charred tree stumps

Stumps, Stumps

 

Are you going, are you going

Are you going, are you going

Are you going, are you going

Are you going, are you going

Are you going, are you going

1400 Miles
