You Gotta Play (JBG)

ONE LONELY DAY IN ANY TOWN

I HAD A WALK I LOOKED AROUND

SUDDENLY I FOUND A SMALL CAFÉ

THERE WAS A GIRL I SAW HER SMILE

 

  THE BEST LOOKING I EVER HAD SEEN

  I KNEW JUST WHAT THOSE EYES COULD MEAN

 

I ASKED PLEASE CAN I HAVE A SEAT

I MADE AN ORDER COFFE AND BEER

SHE HAD TO GO I ASKED CAN I JOIN

SHE SAID WELL YOU MIGHT BUT I HAVE ONE REQUEST

 

  YOU GOTTA PLAY JOHNNY B. GOODE

  YOU GOTTA PLAY JOHNNY B. GOODE

 

I TOLD HER THIS IS REALLY WEIRD

I KNOW ALL MODERN SONGS BY HEART

WELL I DON’T CARE YOU MIGHT JUST QUIT SHE SAID

I HAVE ONE REQUEST IF YOU WANT TO BE MINE

 

  YOU GOTTA…

To The Country

HOME

YES I’M HEADING FOR HOME

FIND

TO FIND JUST WHERE I AM

AND ALL

ALL WHAT THERE IS LEFT

 

NOW

THERE’S A TOWN IN MY HEAD

SOON

SOON IT WILL BE GONE

AND LEFT IS

WHAT THERE ALWAYS WAS

Farewell

  GOODBYE GOODBYE…

 

TEARS ARE FALLING DOWN FROM YOU

ON MY FACE I’M WEEPING TOO

FEELINGS LOOSE CONTROL

WHEN YOU TAKE FAREWELL

 

  GOODBYE GOODBYE…

 

ARROWS HEADING FOR A GOAL

A TARGET IN A CLOUD OF DREAMS

YOU LOOSE YOURSELF SOMEWHERE

WHEN ALL YOU DO SEAMS ALLRIGHT

 

  FAREWELL

  CAN’T BE SAID ANY OTHER WAY

  FAREWELL

  WHEN THE PARTING IS ALL FOR REAL

 

TIME CAN NEVER HEAL A WOUND

HIDDEN SAFELY DEEP INSIDE

CERTAIN MEMORIES

GAIN THEIR STRENGTH OUT OF TIME

 

  GOODBYE GOODBYE…

Everything

LIVING IN CHANGES

I HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE

CHASING IN SILENCE

I'VE DONE THAT HERE BEFORE

 

PLAYING LIKE CHILDREN

NOTHING IS EVERYTHING

CLEAR IS YOUR VOICE THOUGH

I DID FORGET

 

  ME WHO WANTED EVERYTHING      LET ME STAY WITH YOU

  EVERYTHING                                       YES ALL OF YOU

  EVERYTHING                                       STAY WITH YOU

  EVERYTHING                                       ALL OF YOU

 

DOORS ARE OPEN TALL AND WIDE

GATES CLOSE IN FRONT OF YOU

TIME HAS MADE ANOTHER SPEECH

EMPTY AT LAST

 

  ME WHO...

Sleep

I TALK MYSELF TO SLEEP THIS MORNING

I DON'T CARE FOR BREAKFAST AT THIS TIME

I DON'T MIND TO KEEP THEM WAITING

THEY DON'T TAKE NOTICE ANYHOW

 

  TORTURING      WORK AGAIN      SLEEP      SLEEP

 

PICK SOMEONE ELSE THERE'S PLENTY OF

PEOPLE ALMOST DYING FOR A JOB

I STILL HAVE THINGS TO DREAM ABOUT

THE DOOR IS LOCKED AND NO MORE TELEPHONES

 

  TORTURING...

Bells From The Border

BIG TOWN HEROES

NO USE HUNTING ANGELS HERE

HEAR BELLS FROM THE BORDER CALL

 

PREPARING ANOTHER MEAL

NEW CUSTOMERS ALL THE TIME

HEAR BELLS FROM THE BORDER CALL

 

  THEY KNOW IN THEIR HEARTS WHAT  TO EXPECT

  THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO CHOOSE OR TO REJECT

 

LIFELIKE CAGELING

MIGHT CALL THIS A HOLY GROUND

NO FOOLING THE HUNGRY ONES

 

  THEY KNOW IN THEIR HEARTS WHAT TO EXPECT

  THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO CHOOSE OR TO REGRET

  THE SOUND IS GETTING CLOSE ALMOST CLEAR

  WE’VE GOT THE BELLS AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE HERE
