    Making my way back

    Well I'm New York City born and raised
    But nowadays,
    I'm lost between two shores
    L.A.'s fine, but it ain't home
    New York's home,
    But it ain't mine no more

    "I am"... I said
    To no one there
    And no one heard at all
    Not even the chair

    "I am"... I cried "I am"... said I
    And I am lost and I can't
    Even say why
    Leavin' me lonely still

    Did you ever read about a frog
    Who dreamed of bein' a king
    And then became one
    Well except for the names
    And a few other changes
    If you talk about me
    The story's the same one

    But I got an emptiness deep inside
    And I've tried
    But it won't let me go
    And I'm not a man who likes to swear
    But I never cared
    For the sound of being alone

    "I am"... I said
    To no one there
    And no one heard at all
    Not even the chair
    "I am"... I cried
    "I am"... said I
    And I am lost and I can't
    Even say why
    "I am"... I said
    "I am"... I cried
    "I am"... I said

    Some folks like to get away
    Take a holiday from the neighbourhood
    Hop a flight to Miami Beach
    Or to Hollywood
    But I'm taking a Greyhound
    On the Hudson River Line
    I'm in a New York state of mind
    I've seen all the movie stars
    In their fancy cars and their limousines
    Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens
    But I know what I'm needing
    And I don't want to waste more time
    I'm in a New York state of mind
    It was so easy living day by day
    Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
    But now I need a little give and take
    The New York Times, The Daily News
    It comes down to reality
    And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
    Don't care if it's Chinatown or up on Riverside
    I don't have any reasons
    I've left them all behind
    I'm in a New York state of mind
    It was so easy living day by day
    Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
    But now I need a little give and take
    The New York Times, The Daily News
    It comes down to reality
    And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
    Don't care if it's Chinatown or up on Riverside
    I don't have any reasons
    I've left them all behind
    I'm in a New York state of mind
    I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
    'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind

    Going to Seattle on the Greyhound
    I missed school for this
    Bought two tickets last September
    Before your harmful bliss

    Playin' at the Neptune
    They were your favourite
    I still can't believe you're gone
    Can't get you to explain it

    I wish I could go home, forget this ever happened
    I feel depressed, out of whack, and in my own world
    Sometimes I can't feel a thing
    I can barely feel a thing

    Hats off to you
    For you to go
    Wish you were here
    At the show

    Hats off to you
    For you to go
    Wish you were here
    But now it blows

    It ruled your world
    You lost the battle
    It broke my heart in half
    When I heard the bottles rattle

    I know you wanted to be here
    But now you're gone
    I'll be thinking of you
    When the lights come on

    Hats off to you
    For you to go
    Wish you were here
    But now it blows

    Wake up, Maggie
    I think I got something to say to you
    It's late September and
    I really should be back at school

    I know I keep you amused
    But I feel I'm being used
    Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore
    You led me away from home
    Just to save you from being alone
    You stole my heart and that's what really hurts

    The morning sun, when it's in your face
    Really shows your age
    That don't worry me none
    In my eyes, you're everything

    I laughed at all of your jokes
    My love you didn't need to coax
    Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore
    You led me away from home
    Just to save you from being alone
    You stole my soul and that's a pain I can do without

    All I needed was a friend
    To lend a guiding hand
    But you turned into a lover, and mother what a lover!
    You wore me out

    All you did was wreck my bed
    And in the morning kick me in the head
    Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore
    You led me away from home
    'Cause you didn't want to be alone
    You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried

    I suppose I could collect my books
    And get on back to school
    Or steal my daddy's cue
    And make a living out of playing pool

    Or find myself a rock 'n' roll band
    That needs a helping hand
    Oh, Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face
    You made a first-class fool out of me
    But I'm as blind as a fool can be
    You stole my heart, but I love you anyway

    Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face
    I'll get on back home one of these days, ooh, ooh, ooh

    I wandered today to the hills, Maggie
    To watch the scene below
    The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie
    As we used to long, long ago

    The green grove has gone from the hills, Maggie
    Where first the daisies sprung
    The creaking old mill is still, Maggie
    Since you and I were young

    Oh, they say that I'm feeble with age, Maggie
    My steps are much slower than then
    My face is a well written page, Maggie
    And time all alone was the pen

    They say we have outlived our time, Maggie
    As dated the song that we've sung
    But to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie
    When you and I were young

    They say we have outlived our time, Maggie
    As dated the song that we've sung
    But to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie
    When you and I were young
    When you and I were young

    Sometimes I get to feeling
    I was back in the old days long ago.
    When we were kids, when we were young
    Things seemed so perfect. You know?

    The days were endless, we were crazy, we were young.
    The sun was always shining. We just lived for fun.

    Sometimes it seems like lately.
    I just don't know.
    The rest of my life's been just a show.

    Those were the days of our lives.
    The bad things in life were so few.
    Those days are all gone now,
    But one thing is true
    When I look and I find I still love you.

    You can't turn back the clock,
    You can't turn back the tide.
    Ain't that a shame?
    I'd like to go back one time on a roller-coaster ride
    When life was just a game.

    No use sitting and thinking on what you did
    When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids.

    Sometimes it seems like lately.
    I just don't know
    Better sit back and go with the flow

    'Cause these are the days of our lives.
    They've flown in the swiftness of time.
    These days are all gone now,
    But some things remain
    When I look and I find no change.

    Those were the days of our lives.
    The bad things in life were so few.
    Those days are all gone now,
    But one thing's still true
    When I look and I find I still love you.

    They came at night leaving fear behind
    Shadows were on the ground
    No nobody knew where to find him
    No evidence was found
    "I'm never coming back!"
    They heard him cry and I believe him
    Well he never meant to do anything wrong
    It's gonna get worse if he waits too long
    Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    'Cause you're not anywhere that I can find you
    Oh now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    'Cause you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh no
    Searching through the day and into the night
    They wouldn't stop 'til they found him
    They didn't know him and they didn't understand
    They never asked him: why?
    "Get out of my way!"
    They heard him shout, then a blinding light
    Ooh all I could see was him running down the street
    Out of the shadows and into the night
    Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    'Cause you're not anywhere that I can find you
    Oh, now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    'Cause you're not anywhere that I can find you
    Oh don't give up
    Keep running, keep hiding
    Don't give up
    Billy, if you know you're right
    Don't give up
    You know that I am on your side
    Don't give up - oh Billy
    You better, you better, you better run for your life
    Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    'Cause you're not anywhere that I can find you
    Oh, now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
    'Cause you're not anywhere that I can find you
    Oh, they came at night leaving fear behind

    Oh now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number

    'Don't Lose My Number' - Phil Collins
    The marchin' band came down along Main Street
    The soldier-blues fell in behind
    I looked across and there I saw Billy
    Waiting to go and join the line

    And with her head upon his shoulder
    His young and lovely fiancee
    From where I stood I saw she was cryin'
    And through her tears I heard her say:

    "Billy, don't be a hero, don't be a fool with your life
    Billy, don't be a hero, come back and make me your wife"
    And as Billy started to go she said: "Keep your pretty head low
    Billy, don't be a hero, come back to me"

    The soldier-blues were trapped on a hillside
    The battle raging all around
    The sergeant cried: "We've gotta hang on, boys
    We've gotta hold this piece of ground

    I need a volunteer to ride out
    And bring us back some extra men"
    And Billy's hand was up in a moment
    Forgettin' all the words she said. She said:

    "Billy, don't be a hero, don't be a fool with your life
    Billy, don't be a hero, come back and make me your wife"
    And as Billy started to go she said: "Keep your pretty head low
    Billy, don't be a hero, come back to me"

    I heard his fiancee got a letter
    That told how Billy died that day
    The letter said that he was a hero
    She should be proud he died that way
    I heard she threw the letter away

    Daddy was a cop on the east side of Chicago
    Back in the USA, back in the bad old days

    In the heat of a summer night
    In the land of the dollar bill
    When the town of Chicago died
    And they talk about it still
    When a man named Al Capone
    Tried to make that town his own
    And he called his gang to war
    With the forces of the law

    I heard my momma cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night it really was?
    Brother, what a fight it really was?
    Glory be!

    I heard my momma cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night the people saw?
    Brother, what a fight the people saw?
    Yes, indeed

    And the sound of the battle rang
    Through the streets of the old East Side
    Till the last of the hoodlum gang
    Had surrendered up or died
    There was shouting in the street
    And the sound of running feet
    And I asked someone who said
    " 'Bout a hundred cops are dead".

    I heard my momma cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night it really was?
    Brother, what a fight it really was?
    Glory be!

    I heard my momma cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night the people saw?
    Brother, what a fight the people saw?
    Yes, indeed

    Then there was no sound at all
    But the clock upon the wall
    Then the door burst open wide
    And my daddy stepped inside
    And he kissed my momma's face
    And he brushed her tears away

    The night Chicago died
    Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
    The night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night the people saw
    Brother, what a fight the people saw
    Yes, indeed

    The night Chicago died
    Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
    The night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night it really was
    Brother, what a fight it really was
    Glory be!

    The night Chicago died
    Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
    The night Chicago died
    Brother, what a night the people saw

    Why did you let him get away?
    After the staring, what did you say?
    Shot me down as cold as ice
    Scream in my face then pushed you back
    She should have spied down his skin
    Now it's my job to get revenge

    Why did you let him get away?
    Why did you let him get her?

    Too bad, forget it
    'Cause Al Capone said it
    So sad, regret it
    'Cause a madman's out tonight

    You should have told her
    Nobody ever showed her about us
    No one's sleeping
    Nobody should be grievin' this way

    You're as cold as ice
    You're willing to sacrifice our love
    You never take advice
    Someday you'll pay the price, I know

    I've seen it before
    It happens all the time
    You're closing the door
    You leave the world behind

    You're digging for gold
    Yet throwing away
    A fortune in feelings
    But someday you'll pay

    It's a human sign
    When things go wrong
    When the scent of her lingers
    And temptations strong

    Into the boundary
    Of each married man
    Sweet deceit comes a callin'
    And negativity lands

    Cold, cold heart
    Hard done by you
    Some things looking better baby
    Just passin' through
    And it's no sacrifice
    Just a simple word
    It's two hearts living
    In two separate worlds
    But it's no sacrifice
    No sacrifice
    It's no sacrifice at all

    When we're in a friendly situation
    My conversation may not be smart
    But if we're to have a perfect understanding
    Let's call a heart a heart

    There are words that should be whispered gently
    That's evidently the way to start
    If I tell you what my dreams have been demanding
    Let's call a heart a heart

    Can I prove how I yearn
    Just by the turn of a phrase?
    Can I keep my control
    When all my soul is ablaze?

    Maybe you would call a true confession
    An indiscretion on someone's part
    But if I'm to say how madly I adore you
    Let's call a heart a heart

    He was raised in the English way
    His daddy taught him respect, he taught him how to pray
    They sent him off to boarding school
    Where he learned how to live by someone else's rule

    And he went to confession
    He went to confession
    Holy Father, wash my sins away
    He went to confession
    He went to confession
    Mother Mary, take the pain away

    He read letters from home at night in his bed
    And got this uneasy feeling when his father said:

    Fear of God and the feel of the rod
    Will raise a good boy
    The fear of God and the feel of the rod
    Will raise a good boy

    He bought his daddy's car, and he learned to drive
    And when he left school, he got a nine-to-five
    He met the girl, and he got his spouse
    And they had the child, and they got the house

    And he went to confession
    He went to confession
    Holy Father, wash my sins away
    He went to confession
    He went to confession
    Mother Mary, take the pain away

    That's all I wanted
    Something special, someone sacred in your eyes
    For just one moment
    To be bold and naked at your side

    Sometimes I think that you'll never understand me
    Maybe this time is forever, say it can be, whoa

    That's all you wanted
    Somethin' special, someone sacred in your life
    Just for one moment, to be warm and naked at my side

    Sometimes I think that you'll never understand me
    (Understand me)
    But somethin' tells me together, we'd be happy, whoa baby

    I will be your father figure
    Put your tiny hand in mine
    I will be your preacher teacher
    Anything you have in mind
    I will be your father figure
    I have had enough of crime
    I will be the one who loves you
    'Til the end of time

    That's all I wanted
    But sometimes love can be mistaken for a crime
    That's all I wanted
    Just to see my baby's blue eyes shine

    This time I think that my lover understands me
    (Understands me)
    If we have faith in each other then we can be strong

    I will be your father figure
    Put your tiny hand in mine
    I will be your preacher teacher
    Anything you have in mind
    I will be your father figure
    I have had enough of crime
    I will be the one who loves you
    'Til the end of time

    If you are the desert, I'll be the sea
    If you ever hunger, hunger for me
    Whatever you ask for, that's what I'll be
    So when you remember the ones who have lied
    Who said that they cared but then
    Laughed as you cried
    Beautiful darling, don't think of me
    Because all I ever wanted
    It's in your eyes baby (baby)
    And love can't lie, no

    Greet me with the eyes of a child
    My love is always tellin' me so
    Heaven is a kiss and a smile
    Just hold on, hold on
    I won't let you go, my baby

    I will be your father figure
    Put your tiny hand in mine
    I will be your preacher teacher
    Anything you have in mind
    I will be your father figure
    I have had enough of crime
    I will be the one who loves you
    'Til the end of time

    I will be your father (I will be your)
    I will be your (father) preacher teacher
    I will be your (I'll be your daddy, oh)
    I will be the one who loves you
    'Til the end of time

    'Father Figure' - George Michael
