I need a little time,
To think it over,
I need a little space,
Just on my own
I need a little time
To find my freedom
I need a little time.........
You've heard it said a thousand times
But only heard his Broadway lines
So baby please go, ain't, ain't part of the show
Cause when your Romeo needs no cue or prompt
Eyes to take you dancing,
Mouth to leave your wife,
Legs to run away with, and you wonder why
Heart that makes you bypass every other girl
Well I kept fantasizing your eyes were wide open
And it made me long for little last night
Yes it was frantic, it was young, it was sweet
But a sweet worth every bite
Think of you with pipe and slippers,
think of her in bed.
Laying there just watching telly,
then think of me instead.
Well the dice that I roll never seems to land on six
And that 48 card pack is short of some of my old tricks
The horse I bet on all those years ago
If you could pull yourself away from that mess
Surely if you could pack a punch then you can pack a dress
Cause hot on the trail of self-pity is wilderness
I came in here just to see his guilty face
I'm just checkin'
He's been dead twenty years but I sort of miss the chase
I'm just ckeckin'
Ce souvenir je te le rends.
Des souvenirs, tu sais j'en ai tellement.
Puisqu'on rźva de jours errants.
Pas la peine de changer trop...
Ce souvenir je te le prends.
You can't write a novel from a briefcase,
you can write a poem from a trench,
you can dream a dream from A to B,
but you can't catch a bus from a bench.
That grand facade will finally diminish
When he breaks your heart from start to finish
SIsters dream of isles in paradise
That ain't no use when the captain's just capsized
Like a toupee on a fading fame,
Final whistle in a losing game,
Thick lipstick on a five year old girl,
Makes you think that’s it’s a plastic world.
And the women tug their hair
Like they're trying to prove it won't fall out
And all the men are gargoyles
Dipped long in Irish stout
The whole place is pickled
I love you from the bottom of my pencil case
I love you in the songs I write and sing
Love takes time we all agree
And time's not the easist to cheat
The water changes one degree
When will the shiver of this river turn to sea ?
This table has four sturdy legs
And a heart of very near wild oak
When others would have screamed out loud my friend
This one never even spoke
