Much too soon you're gonna know I'm strong I don't care what's right or wrong, I'm gonna find you by tonight. I've been so long searching for you And there ain't a thing that you can do 'Cos I'm gonna be there by tonight. If you're feeling edgy then you better catch a train, Or you may see my face at your window pane I'm gonna get you by tonight. I've listened and waited and watched every move I'm tortured and twisted, got something to prove And I ain't the kind that you can easily soothe Now you're in for some trouble, I'm telling the truth. And you can't escape ....
Everyone agrees, a little money helps to please, But I just took so much of it, I'm shakin' at the knees And we've gotta leave this town. We've had a heavy day, but the law want us to stay, We told them "Thanks a lot, but we've just got to get away" And we've gotta leave right now! There's a place I gotta be, and time won't wait for me But I gotta make it alone I can see the river wind, and hear the guns behind We gotta move, we gotta run, away from what we've done. Only yesterday I was lazing in the sun, Makin' out with bar-room queens and boozing like a bum Now we've gotta leave this town It don't seem really fair, but then thinkin' of my share, I guess it can't be bad, 'cos I must be a millionaire, So we've gotta leave right now. There's a place I gotta go where nobody'll know And I've gotta make it alone I can see the hills ahead, and the skyline turning red .... Now I'm crawling down the street with an independent air, Feeling good from being loose, so we ain't got a care And feeling like settling down But someone starts to stare, and he jumps up from his chair, Before he gets to make a sound, I'm sitting on my mare And we've gotta leave right now I don't know where to go, and I'm feeling pretty low But I've gotta make it alone And as I turn around, I can see a dusty cloud .... We gotta move, we gotta run, Away from what we've done We gotta move, we gotta run, All the way to Monte Carlo.
Anything you want, anything you need, she does it, She don't even care, if you make her bleed, she does it, She can do it better than Judy or Suzie, Wouldn't want to say that she's really choosy. But if you find out that she gets about, just turn her round If you're straight or bent, don't have to pay a cent, 'Cos she does it... Free! Only twenty-three, but boy you're telling me that she does it, She can make you feel like a little schoolboy Tie you up in knots, or she can be a kill-joy But if you find out that she gets about, just turn her round. Lethercomealongandtakeyabythehand, Thenbeforetoolongyou'llreachthepromisedland, Anyproblemsthatyou'vegotshe'llunderstand She's more than just a friend ... Girls like her are really hard to find, Maybe it's her inquiring mind, Don't know what it is, But she makes me feel like this... Come along with me, I want you to see how she does it, Can't control myself, nor can no-one else when she does it, We can even see her at the same time, Nothing's wrong with that, in fact she'll think it's fine I don't mind if you don't mind, so come on now before someone gets in ... Lethercomealongandtakeyabythehand, Thenbeforetoolongyou'llreachthepromisedland, Anyproblemsthatyou'vegotshe'llunderstand She's more than just a friend ...
When you left you really let me down I can't rise, though I've tried, I'm still waiting around, I remember how it used to be, I've tried, and I've tried but I can't understand. Just the way you called out my name Wasn't the same, it felt like a different game And the way you called out my name.... After time has slipped away, you may find that I'm still on your mind, We'll have gone our separate ways much to far to turn around, You'll remember all the things we went through, Following me, following you for all time, And you'll remember I still feel the same, It's such a shame .... I'll tell you something that you ought to know If you're leaving home today, You're turning your back on something so strong, But I hope you find your way. I'll tell you something that you ought to know If you're leaving me today, You're turning your back on a love that's so strong That you might not find your way I'll tell you something that you gotta know If you're leaving me today Don't turn your back on me, 'Cos I can't go on, And I'll never find my way.
Stop complaining, that won't be any use It's all right, just stay loose Listen honey, there's no money Country's ruined, down the drain. Jimmy's feeling down, 'cos ain't got a pound, He's leaving the sinking ship But he ain't gonna drown; just walkin' on soft ground So why not stay with us and help us try to put it back afloat. Best foot forward, worst foot backward, We shall always overcome, Playing music for ten years now Made no bread, we must be dumb! People feeling down 'cos they ain't got a pound, They're leaving the sinking ship But you ain't gonna drown so why not stick around, And maybe you can stay with us and help us try to make it float again. "Now look here, what's all this bickering, etc, etc?" (Heckling and gyp section) And so you see, we won't be going away, No Way We're going to stay, We're going to get stronger, it won't be much longer. So be patient and be brave through the slumps It's going to turn up trumps!
I need love, I need it now, Not tomorrow, but right now, You look good, but you don't look nice, Be my friend, just once or twice. I don't wanna settle down, I just wanna fool around Gimme something that I want.... I want love, and I wannit now, Not in two seconds, I wannit now, You're feeling bad, aw, that's a shame, Come over here, I'll fix the pain! A little action is what I need, If you don't like it, then you better leave, I'll tell it to you straight down the line Don't ask no questions, we ain't got time!
Lies, broken promises Dreams and apologies Seems I'm wasting my time With you. Yesterdays and tomorrows All full of sorrows More goodbyes than smiles From you.
Like the sea after the storm You calm me, keep me warm and safe from harm. Heal my wounds, cure my pain, I feel cold, I feel rain on me again. So take me and hold me and keep me don't burn me, Love me and need me and tell me don't burn me, Your light shines bright Reach me and save me, protect me, don't burn me, Show me, enclose me, surround me, don't burn me, Your light shines bright... Through the dark, I see fear, I can breathe, now you're near and holding me.
Here we are drifting apart further every day Friends all say it's not my fault it had to end like this 'Cause I don't know too much about caring And I don't know the meaning of sharing - everything. I just couldn't show what you should've known, To keep you by my side, I just couldn't say what other people say, They're words too hard to find Here we are, we can't look back, we can only live, Wondering why I can't even cry, I can't do anything, And I don't even care about tomorrow, Any love that I need I can borrow, to get me by. I can never show to anyone I know The way I feel I do, But one thing's for sure, in my special way I'm still in love with you.
Well, didya ever get the feelin' that the world ain't right? Like when you're standing in the dance-hall someone picks a fight He says, "Hey, c'mere long-hair I saw ya lookin' at my chick!" You gotta get away quick And as you turn to make a run he throws a punch at your head You know you gotta make the exit or you're gonna be dead But when you finally hit the sidewalk you can tell that you ain't going too far 'Cos someone stole your car And it's the same play, each day, can't pay, no way They gotcha in a hole y'know. It's the same old reason and the same old rhyme, And the snakes are out to bite you everytime But not me babe It takes one to know one, It takes one to know one, It takes one to know one, And I know you! You know I tried to call my baby, tried to make a date, She said, "I'm awful sorry, honey, but you called too late, Y'see I've gotta drive my Daddy to a meeting of the P.T.A., I can't come out to play!" So then I took me off downtown and met this chick in a bar She took me back to her apartment in her Jaguar, But when we started rockin' she threw me straight outta the door, There oughta be a law And it's the same play, each day, can't pay, there's no way You're gonna get a break, y'know It's the same old reason and the same old rhyme, She says she's got the feelin' but she ain't got the time, Don't gimme that jive, babe It takes one to know one And I know you! Well now it's Saturday night and I just got laid, But there's a shadow in the alley still gotta be paid. I heard it's tough at the top, but it sure looks good from the floor They won't let you score. Every day it's getting rougher and it's hard to survive When there's a lotta people round don't wanna see you alive, They wanna take you to the cleaners, and leave you in the gutter to bleed When they've got all they need. And it's the same old reason and the same old rhyme, And the man still wants your life on the dotted line, But I got wise, babe It takes one to know one And I Know You (all of you).
(Overend Watts/Dale Griffin)
Always burned, you've never learned the times when not to fight, You're always hurtin', never certain that the time was right, Always being insecure's the price you have to pay Sometimes it ain't wrong to follow, I can show you the way. I can show you how it is.
