INFO & LYRICS

SOMETHING’S COMING

Could be
Who knows?
There something due any day
I will know right away
Soon as it shows

It may come cannon-ballin’ down from the sky
Gleam in its eye
Bright as a rose
Who knows?

It’s only just out of reach
Down a block, on the beach
Under a tree
I got a feeling there’s a miracle due
Gotta come through
Coming to me

Could it be
Yes it could
Something’s coming
Something good
If I can wait

Something’s coming
I don’t know what it is
But it is
Going to be great

With a click
With a shock
Bell will jingle
Door will knock
Open the latch

Something’s coming
I don’t know what it is
But it is
Going to be great

Around the corner
A-whistlin’ down the river
Come on deliver
To me
To me

Could be
Who knows?
There something due any day
I will know right away
Soon as it shows

It may come cannon-ballin’ down from the sky
Gleam in its eye
Bright as a rose
Who knows?

It’s only just out of reach
Down a block, on the beach
Under a tree
I got a feeling there’s a miracle due
Gotta come through
Coming to me
To me

Tonight, Tonight
Won’t be just any night
Tonight there will be no morning star.

Tonight.

EVERYDAYS

Look at the sad goodbyes
Everydays are killing time
Sun coming up outside
No men are born this time
Saturday’s child stays home
Nothing to say So long

Well, well, well,
Another day
Well, well, well,
Another day …day …day

Grocery store
Ten bucks
Just making change for plastic cherries
Up in a tree, jaybird
Looking at me, no word
Everyone looks
We can’t see
We can’t be ignored easily

Well, well, well,
Another day
Well, well, well,
Another day

Soft within the wayward things
Like ecstacy
The sound of trees
Most anything
What a baby sees

Beautiful face, alright
Many a place, outta sight
Old woman there with red shoes
One million balloons, all used
Drive over hills, forget your fear
Getting it out of second gear

Well, well, well,
Another day
Well, well, well,
Another day (Repeat)

SWEETNESS

She brings the sunshine to a rainy afternoon
She puts the sweetness in and stirs it with a spoon,
She watches for my moods and never brings me down
She puts the sweetness in all around
She knows just what to say to make me feel so good inside
and when I’m all alone I feel I don’t want to hide
Today she bought me in and told me where she’d been
She put my mind at rest and put the sweetness in
I’ll ask her for some time to go and look around
She puts the sweetness in all around
She knows just what to say to make a sunny day
And when I’m all alone I really don’t feel that way.
Tell me how would you feel with no world of your own
and nobody to hold, I just can’t see the way
I’m so glad it’s today and you’re here.

DEAR FATHER

You need them to open the seed
To see what goes on in the world
Here in my mind
Catch the wind and hold on tight
To what we’ll find
And hear what goes on in the world
Here is all you see
Everything is made for you from me

If there’s anything you’d like to say that could help me in any way
Cause I’ve been waiting for so long for you to come along
Help me on that day
When you take over all the things heaven has made for you
Is there anything you think you should know
Is there anything before I go?

Dear Father [repeat]
I’m hungry, I’m cold
Feeling terribly old
I don’t think I can see
I’m not feeling good like I think I should

They’re on their own, needing a face, a place,
Hope and mind, a home
To see what goes on in the world
They’re who you need
To show them why they’re wrong, oh why indeed
We need to go on in the world
Here is all you see
Everything is made for you from me.

If there’s any complication that you’d like to talk over with me about
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for so long for you to come along
We can work it all out

[repeat pre-chorus]

Dear Father [repeat]
You must be putting me on
‘Cause most of their minds are gone
They run on T’understand me
I’m not feeling good like I think I should

Dear Father [repeat]
Can I give it a miss
‘Cause I’m not ready for this
I don’t think I can see
I’m not feeling good like I think I should

Dear Father [repeat]
Won’t you leave me alone
Won’t you let me go home
I don’t think I could see
Lord, they’d crucify me
I just couldn’t do that
‘Cause that’s not where it’s at now.

EVERY LITTLE THING

When I’m walking beside her,
people tell me I’m lucky
Yes I know I’m a lucky guy
I remember the first time
I was lonely without her
can’t stop thinking about her now
Every little thing she does
she does for me yeah
and you know the things she does
she does for me
When I’m with her I’m happy
Just to know that she loves me
Yes I know that she love me now
there is one thing I am sure of
because I know love will never die

LOOKING AROUND

Looking around me
There’s not so much in life that I miss
Things that I can’t see
I’ll touch and I’ll feel then I’ll kiss
Then I saw you standing there
With a smile I couldn’t share
Just looking around, everywhere.
Tunes that I can’t hear,
would take me for a while my smile
Fares that are too dear
I’d rather walk out another smile
Then I heard a tune so right
It was in the light of night
just listening around everywhere
All the things I’ve wanted to do
take so much time to get around to you
just reach out and catch and hold on
having trails of dust and lust but never even lying or trying
just keep on moving and never dying.
Smiles that I don’t see
I’ll make them up as I go on
Laughs that just can’t be
I’ll make and laugh at everyone
Then I saw you in your place
with a laugh upon your face
Just looking around everywhere
Looking around with my feet on the ground full of words and
of sound bring smiles all around
Satisfy me with your words that can be full of sound and I’ll
see I’m just looking around.

SWEET DREAMS

Sweet dreams can solve the future,
Sweet dreams provide the past.
Sweet things within your makeup;
These things will always last,
These things will make

Sweet dreams of conversation,
Sweet dreams of love affection.
Sweet words within your makeup;
Sweet words of things to

Come on and write your letter,
You know it will be better anyhow.
You’re gonna laugh again,
You’re gonna smile again,
You’re gonna love again.

Sweet dreams are born inside you,
Sweet dreams are born to last.
Sweet thoughts within your makeup;
These thoughts will always last,
These thoughts will always last.

Come on and write your letter,
You know it will be better anyhow.
You’re gonna laugh again,
You’re gonna smile again,
You’re gonna love again.

Sweet dreams can solve the future,
Sweet dreams provide the past.
Sweet dreams can solve the future,
Sweet dreams provide the past.

THEN

And in a time that’s closer, life will be even bolder then.
Souls will be complicated, life will be consummated then.
Hearts will be brought together soon in our minds forever then.
As long as we see there’s only us, who can change it;
Only us to rearrange it at the start of a new kind of day.
And in a time that’s closer, life will be even bolder then.
Love is the only answer, hate is the root of cancer then.
Thoughts will be thought together, soon in our minds forever then.

Love is the only answer, hate is the root of cancer then.
Truth is just for the being and there’s the sight for seeing then.
Thoughts will be brought together soon in our minds forever then.
As long as we see there’s only us, who can change it;
Only us to rearrange it at the start of a new kind of day.
And in a time that’s closer, life will be even bolder then.

NO OPPORTUNITY NECESSARY, NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED

Step out in the night
When you get lonely
Listen for the sounds
City ears don’t hear
I know your cross is gettin’ heavier
With every step
Every step
But I know a man
Who walked miles for you
Stop
Stay where you are
Take a look at yourself
Take a good look at yourself
Can’t turn to mama
Cause she’d only tell you she told you so
That some of us are still learning
That the real trick to life we all know

The lights flashed today
At the dawnin’
Daytime, nighttime
We still don’t see
Why must we wait until mornin’
To wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and BE

Now, you and I both know there’s no such thing as up and down
And even when your problems got you goin’ ’round and ’round
Gotta talk like a man to poppa
‘Cause he don’t understand that other stuff
Since we’re part of the cross
he’s been carryin’
I think our end has been draggin’
Long enough.
All right, all right,
All right, all right, all right,
Pick it up, pick it up,
Pick it up, pick it up!

ASTRAL TRAVELLER

And in the ruins
Caught in the noose around me,
Glasses tell lies.
Wondering when
To do it again of another
Flying to the sky,
Somewhere flying high.
Astral trav’ller,
Leaving without her,
Wond’ring where lives go;
In and out the valley below.

Once in the air,
We could expect a great respect in being.
(Astral trav’ller.)
Memories fly
Over the sky, and oh, the
Sight’s worth seeing,
Just believin’.
Astral trav’ller,
Leaving without her,
Wond’ring where lives go;
In and out the valley below.

FOR EVERYONE

Love for a new day
Love start arising
Love comes surprising
Even me
Love comes surprising
Everyone

Inside of your love
All is confusion
Love revolution
Never my
Love revolution
Everywhere
Everywhere

What are the new day
As no change the answer
When life see’s a chance for
In your eyes
Will I see a chance for
Everyone

All I can show you
You may get in freedom
All I can see that is
In your eyes
Feel for me or
For Everyone
For Everyone
For Everyone

Loneliness is a power that we possess
To give or take away forever
All I know can be shown by your acceptance
Of the fact there shown before you

There is life
There is love
There is you
There is time

Take what I say in a different way
And it’s easy to see that this is all confusion
As I see a new day in me
I can also show it you
And you may follow

First there’s life
Then there’s love
‘Cause there’s you
Then there’s time
And they’re one
Can’t control
All you see
In the soul
What you need
Can’t be told
There is no one
All alone

BEYOND AND BEFORE

Sparkling trees of Silver foam
cast shadows soft in winter’s home
Swaying branches breaking sound
In lonely forests trembling ground.

Masquerading leaves of blue
Run circles round the morning dew
In patterns understood by you
Reaching out beyond and before

Time like gold dust brings mind down
To levels hidden underground
Say a few words to the wind
That’s all thats left of winters friend.

Reaching the snow
In the days of the cold
Casting a Spell out of Ice
Now that your gone
the summers too long
and it seems like the end of my life
Reaching out beyond and before

Time like gold dust brings mind down
Time like gold dust brings mind down
