Lyrics

Lady D'Arbanville
03:43
My Lady D'Arbanville
Why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill
Yes you will be my fill

My Lady D'Arbanville
Why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent
Why do you breathe so low?
Why do you breathe so low?

My Lady D'Arbanville
Why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill
Yes you will be my fill

My Lady D'Arbanville
You look so cold tonight
Your lips feel like winter
Your skin has turned to white
Your skin has turned to white

My Lady D'Arbanville
Why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill
Yes you will be my fill

My Lady D'Arbanville
Why do you greet me so?
But your heart seems so silent
Why do you breathe so low?
Why do you breathe so low?

I loved you my Lady
Though in your grave you lie
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die
This rose will never die

I loved you my Lady
Though in your grave you lie
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die
This rose will never die
Maybe You're Right
03:25
Now maybe you're right and maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long.
It was getting so good why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more tell me if you know.
You were loving me, I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.

I put up with your lies like you put up with mine,
But God knows we should have stopped somewhere,
We could have taken the time,
But time has turned, yes, some call it the end.
So tell me, tell me did you really love me like a friend?
You know you don't have to pretend,
It's all over now It'll never happen again, no no no,
It'll never happen again , it won't happen again
Never, never, never, it'll never happen again
No, no, no, no

So maybe you're right, and maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long.
It was getting so good why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more tell me if you know.
You were loving me, I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do
Pop Star
04:15
Yes I'm going to be a pop star.
Yes I'm going to be a pop star, now.
Yes I'm going to be a pop star.
Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me
I'm a pop star.

Yes, I'm going on the T.V. now.
Yes, I'm going on the T.V. now.
Yes, I'm going on the T.V. now.
Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me
on the T.V.

Yes, I'm going on my first gig.
Yes, I'm going on my first gig.
Yes, I'm going on my first gig.
Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me
on my first gig.

Now listen to me,
La da na la, na da la

Well, I'm going to the cold bank, cold bank.
Yes, I'm going to the cold bank.
Yes, I'm going to the cold bank.
Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me
at the cold bank.

Mama see me!
La da na la, na da la

Well, I'm coming, coming, coming home now.
Yes, I'm coming, coming, coming home now.
Yes, I'm coming, coming, coming home now.
Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me
I'm home
I Think I See the Light
03:56
I used to trust nobody, trusting even less their words,
Until I found somebody, there was no one I preferred,
My heart was made of stone, my eyes saw only misty grey,
Until you came into my life girl, I saw everyone that way.
Until I found the one I needed at my side,
I think I would have been a sad man all my life.

I think I see the light coming to me,
Coming through me giving me a second sight.
So shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine.

I used to walk alone, every step seemed the same.
This world was not my home, so there was nothing much to gain.
Look up and see the clouds, look down and see the cold floor.
Until you came into my life girl, I saw nothing, nothing more.
Until I found the one I needed at my side,
I think I would have been a sad man all my life.

I think I see the light coming to me,
Coming through me giving me a second sight.
So shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine.
Trouble
02:47
Trouble
Oh trouble set me free
I have seen your face
And it's too much too much for me

Trouble
Oh trouble can't you see
You're eating my heart away
And there's nothing much left of me

I've drunk your wine
You have made your world mine
So won't you be fair
So won't you be fair

I don't want no more of you
So won't you be kind to me
Just let me go where
I'll have to go there

Trouble
Oh trouble move away
I have seen your face
And it's too much for me today

Trouble
Oh trouble can't you see
You have made me a wreck
Now won't you leave me in my misery

I've seen your eyes
And I can see death's disguise
Hangin' on me
Hangin' on me

I'm beat, I'm torn
Shattered and tossed and worn
Too shocking to see
Too shocking to see

Trouble
Oh trouble move from me
I have paid my debt
Now won't you leave me in my misery

Trouble
Oh trouble please be kind
I don't want no fight
And I haven't got a lot of time
Mona Bone Jakon
01:41
Yes, I've got a mona bone jakon
But it won't be lonely for long
Yes, I've got a mona bone jakon
But it won't be lonely for long

Yes, I've got my reasons and to me they're all true
And I wouldn't change them, not even for you

Yes, I've got a mona bone jakon
But it won't be lonely for long
I Wish, I Wish
03:51
Oh yeah,
I wish I knew, I wish I knew
What makes me, me, and what makes you, you.
It's just another point of view, (ooh)
A state of mind I'm going through, (yes)
So what I see is never true, (ahh)

I wish I could tell, I wish I could tell
What makes a heaven what makes a hell.
And do I get to ring my bell, (ooh)
Or land up in some dusty cell, (no)
While others reach the big hotel, (yeah)

I wish I had, I wish I had
The secret of good, and the secret of bad.
Why does this question drive me mad? (ahh)
'Cause I was taught when but a lad, (yeah)
That bad was good and good was bad, (no)

I wish I knew the mystery of
That thing called hate, and that thing called love.
What makes the in-between so rough? (ahh)
Why is it always push and shove? (ahh)
I guess I just don't know enough, (yeah)

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I wish I knew, I wish I knew,
I wish I knew, I wish I knew

Somebody tell me, somebody tell me
Katmandu
03:23
I sit beside the dark
Beneath the mire
Cold gray dusty day
The morning lake
Drinks up the sky

Katmandu I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down

Pass me my hat and coat
Lock up the cabin
Slow night treat me right
Until I go
Be nice to know

Katmandu I'll soon be touching you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down

La la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la

Chop me some broken wood
We'll start a fire
White warm light the dawn
And help me see
Old Satan's tree

Katmandu I'll soon be touching you
And your strange bewildering time
Will keep me home
Time
01:26
Time rise
Time fall
Time leaves you nothing
Nothing at all

Words, just words don't know
Words take you nowhere
Nowhere to go, to go

Back
I'm going back
Oh, going back
Fill My Eyes
03:00
And in the morning when you fill my eyes
I knew that day I couldn't do
Ah, no wrong, I couldn't do

And so my mind begins to memorize
'Cause time will never seem the same
Ah, no more, never again

I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't go
My legs are weak my heels are low
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't roll
Can't make no headway on this road

There's an empty space inside me now
A wasteland deep beneath the snow
So cold, nothing'll grow

I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't go
My legs are weak my heels are low
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't roll
Can't make no headway on this road. What road?

And in the morning when you fill my eyes
I knew that day I couldn't do
Ah, no wrong, I couldn't do
Lilywhite
03:41
Back up on the mended road
I pause
Taking time to check the dial

And the Lilywhite
I never knew her name
But she'll be passing my way sometime again

I raise my hand and touch the wheel
Of change
Taking time to check the dial

Thank the Lilywhite
I never knew her name
But she'll be passing my way sometime again
But she'll be passing my way sometime again
