Distant Lands

Distant Lands

Distant lands
Distant love
Many stories
In many tongues


Long distance calls
Remote locations
I miss your touch
Have courage
Have patience


I heard it in fables
I sang it in songs
Distance makes the heart grow fond
Without you, the night is long


Smell that honeysuckle 
Along the road
But it's you, baby
I long to hold


I don't care 
How long I need to wait
Because it's you I'm waiting for
Ain't looking At the time, no
Just wondering where it goes


I should've seen it
Was in the starsI had it read In my palm
Let the water flow
Soothing caress
From Patou Charron
Down to Tyler, Texas


I don't care 
How long I need to wait
It's you I'm waiting for
Ain't looking 
At the time, no
Just wondering where it goes
I'm wondering where the time goes

Francis Albert
Lyrics

Francis Albert

Everywhere our feet step
Francis Albert begins to play
Suddenly we're walking in a dream
And our surroundings start to change
Fountains and wishing wells
Appear then slowly fade
The writing's on the wall, Baby
What more is there for us to say


Please one more song
Promise to make it slow
Because we knew
From the start in our hearts
That we'd have to let go


I was used to electrical storms
It rained on my wedding day
I couldn't see the warnings
Trying to keep me away
Now I recognize all these beautiful things
Are so connected to you
Signs and symbols never lie, Baby
What more is there for us to do


Please one more song
Promise to make it slow
Because we knew
From the start in our hearts
That we'd have to let go
Please one more song
Promise to make it slow

(Al Green) Over You
Lyrics

(Al Green) Over You

Every feeling inside
Said I couldn't cope
Gave me nothing
Nowhere to go


But if true love Is ever true
I wouldn't want to hold you back
I'd jump forward for you, Babe


So it's the end of the line
And I'm on the ropes
Send me something
Someone to hold
Because when true love is ever true
I wouldn't want to bring you down
I'd build stairways for you, Babe


Cause I'm Al Green over you
I'm Al Green over you


Every Feeling inside 
Wouldn't let you go
We walked a mighty, mighty 
Crooked road
But when true love is ever true
You can take the long way home
I'll be waiting for you, Babe


I don't mean to be rude
But I'm just saying
I would've helped you dry your eyes
To keep you from crying
If it's the best we can be
Weather eager to bruise
Or weak at the knees
You know I'll be loving you right


Cause I'm Al Green over you
(We've gotta stay together baby
We've gotta stay together)
I'm Al Green over you
(You know I'm still in love with you)
I'm Al Green over you
(And I'm so tired of being alone
And you are too)
I'm Al Green over you
(Why can't we be Al Green too
Cause green isn't blue)

Love On Credit
Lyrics

Love On Credit

Love's such a pleasure
When first it feels so new
And time ain't no measure
Of how I feel for you
But when this love gets old
Don't let it grow cold like others do


Let our love live on credit
With an interest rate so high
Ain't it a wonder we can make it
When others up and die
We won't say it's broke
Gone up in smoke
Or let it fly away


Is it possible
For you to love meIn this modern age
When Love,
Love looks so strange


March, it gets muddy
December, it's just slush
Leaves fall in September
July brings the dust
Oh, sometimes it's perfect
Other times life can be such a bust


But love's such a pleasure
When first it feels so new
And time ain't no measure
Now that I found you
But when this love grows old
Don't let it get cold and fade like others do


Is it possible
For you to love me
In this modern age
When love,
Love looks so strange
Love, Love is looking strange

Homemade Bomb
Lyrics

Homemade Bomb

Were those bricks rolling off your tongue
Or innuendos
You're up to the same old tricks as always
And I'm sweet and warm like muffins on the stove


May God protect the fools and babies
I ain't a baby anymore
And I won't get that melancholy feeling
When you're fingering the buttons on my shirt


You're a pretty gift
Wrapped in ribbons and bows
But underneath, you're a homemade bomb
So let the truth be told
Let the chips fall where they may
And those chips fall hard on the people you love


In an instant
I could see you'd blow me
To smithereens
Love's disasters
Never leave the answers
They only seem to bring me to my knees


So, God protect the fools and babies
You ain't a baby anymore
And I won't get that melancholy feeling
When you're fingering the buttons on your coat


Were those bricks rolling off your tongue
Or innuendos
You're up to the same old tricks as always
And I'm sweet and warm
Like muffins on the stove
I'm sweet and warm like muffins on the stove

Darling of Aquarius
Lyrics

Darling of Aquarius

I believe my love for you could bury us
Drowning with the darling of Aquarius
In the mercy of the sun
Just to be your golden one
Oh, loving you
Oh, loving you


I'll take all the heartaches I've been carrying
And I'll let the water run away with them
From the ocean's green-lit face
I'll disappear without a trace of Loving you
Oh, loving you


I know my heart was reckless
But I brought her to attention lately
Just say I got the message
As I let the current take me


I'll fall into the shade
Cast by our retrograde
They'll never find me, Baby
Loving you
From the river to the sea
This is how it's meant to be
Oh, loving you
Oh, loving you
I lost myself by loving you
Forgot myself by loving you
I found myself by loving you

Me Loving You
Lyrics

Me Loving You

Hey, did you see
All the falling leaves
That's just me loving you, Baby
That's just me loving you, Baby


Seasons ease
And they scatter our dreams
I'll still be loving you, Baby
I'll still be loving you loving me


I don't want to know
I don't want to see
There's nothing natural 
About you without me


Close your eyes
And go back in time
That's just me loving you, Baby
Thats just me loving you loving me


I don't want to know
I don't want to see
There's nothing natural
About you without me


When we ride 
On the bottomless skies
I'll still be loving you Baby
I'll still be loving you, Baby
I'll be loving you
You'll be loving me
I'll be loving you
You'll be loving me

You Belong To Me
Lyrics
Close

You Belong To Me

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sun rise on a tropic isle
Just remember, darling, all the while
You belong to me.


See the marketplace in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
But remember when a dream appears
You belong to me.


I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too---and blue


Fly the ocean in a silver plane
Watch the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember till you're home again
You belong to me

Deadbeat
Lyrics
Close

Deadbeat

I want to know if you can love me
Because what you see is what you get
I want to know if you can protect me
From all these trigger-happy dealers in tricks


God, I didn't choose this place
Man, I didn't want to know
But here I am 
Here we are
So let's go
God, I want to lose myself
Nobody holding my hand
I'm taking all the drugs that I can


I want to know if you can direct me
To the next late-breaking town
The competition seems friendly
And all the kids are getting down
I can hear your plans are hatching
Hold them tight up to your chest
Cause I don't need another lover
Who's a low-down, dirty mess


God, I didn't choose this place
Man, I didn't want to know
But here I am 
Here we are
So let's go
God, I want to lose myself
Nobody holding my hand
We're taking all the drugs we can
It's a deadbeat
Hard time
But what's yours is mine
It's a deadbeat
Hard time
But what's yours is mine
What's yours is mine
What's yours is mine

Comical Coming Down
Lyrics

Comical Coming Down

I'm not one to gamble
I'd rather stay at home
But I've been known to ramble
And not to let the gambling types alone


From where I was standing
You looked like a real man
Then more calls for gin and brandy
I threw caution to the wind


But I know you're gonna miss me when you're gone
Miss the feeling rolling in my arms
And all the sex, and pirouettes, and grand waterfalls
Now everything's comical coming down


Oh to feel you kiss me
To have your lips on mine
You said I was the sweetest thing 
That ever lived or died


You wanted what you wanted when you wanted it
Now I'm misty in my dreams
I confused love for affection
Self-respect with silly things


But I know you're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Miss the feeling rolling in my arms
And all the sex, and pirouettes, and grand waterfalls
Now everything's comical coming down


Lay your love on me
Lay your love on me
Skin on skin
Two bodies meet
And all of our colors bleed

Spotlight The Moon
Lyrics

Spotlight The Moon

Here's to my Baby
A toast to my Baby:


Although it's outside our domain
If it's true, we'll remain
Here in good company
With voices that ring
Then comes the time before closing
When the songbird sings


So don't spotlight the Moon
As if a flower needs perfume
Won't you show me now
All that love will allow
Shoulder to shoulder we'll be
And may you always love me
May you always love me
