Lyrics


1. Is there a better way

Is there a better way
Is there a better way
Is there a better way ahead
Or just another day

There's got to be a way
To make a better day
I'm gonna find away
To make a better day

You're never gonna be the one to hold me down
You're never gonna be the one to hold me down
There never was a better way with you around
No matter what I do
Do what you got to do
But do it now because the the time
Is running out on you

You've got to find a way
To make a better day
You've got to live and learn
To fight another day

I'm never gonna be the one who put you down
I'm never gonna be the one who put you down
You never know there may be someone in the crowd
There may be someone in the crowd

Is there a better way
Is there a better way
Is there a better way ahead
Or just another day

Maybe you'll never know
A better way to go
I've got a feeling
You don't really want to know

I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
There never was a better way with you around
There never was a better way

I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
I'll never let you be the one to hold me down
There never was a better way with you around
There never was a better way

2. Mad about the boy

She never has to worry
And she never has to try
She's never in a hurry
And I know the reason why
She's got her Daddie's
And her fingers in some pies
She makes a double of a trouble with her lies

She says, Oh I'm mad about the boy
She says, Oh I'm mad about the boy
She says, Oh I'm mad about the boy

She's always late to meet me
And she always has to go
To make another entry
At another coolie show
She is a dirty little lady
But I know
She only has to say the chorus and I go

She says, Oh I'm mad about the boy
She says, Oh-oh-oh I'm mad about the boy
She says, Oh I'm mad about the boy

Don't tell me your troubles
I've got troubles that would make you scream and shout
Don't tell me your troubles
I've got troubles I will tell you all about

No I don't take a drink
No I won't take a drink
But I sure take some ups and some downs
She makes me so weary
She picks me up to put me down

Don't tell me your troubles
I've got troubles that would make you scream and shout
Don't tell me your troubles
I've got troubles I will tell you all about

No I don't take a drink
No I won't take a drink
But I sure take some ups and some downs
You makes me so weary
You pick it up and put me down

You never have to worry
And you never have to try
You're never in a hurry
And I know the reason why
You got your Daddie's
And your fingers in some pies
You makes a double of a trouble with your lies

You say, Oh I'm mad about the boy
You say, Oh-oh-oh I'm mad about the boy
You say, Oh I'm mad about the boy

3. Ring of a change

I look back and I open my eyes
I hear the words like they should be heard
And it feels like a ring of a bell echoing through me
I look back and its never the same
And that's the way it ought to be
What I feel is the sound of a change echoing through me

Move into the light
Come on into the light
Move into the light
I'll see you in the light alright

I think on and I think of today
And what today is gonna be for us
Will we find all the peace that is there and needs to taken
I think on and think its a must
That we slow down for just a while
And I think there's an ounce of a change echoing through me

Move into the light
Come on into the light
Move into the light
I'll see you in the light alright

I look back and I think of a song
I change the words around to make a rhyme
But the song is the same and the change is echoing through me
I look back and its never the same
I leave the song that it use to be
But I know there's a ring of a change echoing through me

Move into the light
Come on into the light
Move into the light
I'll see you in the light alright

4. Blue for you

When I get old and find the time
I'll paint a picture about my life
I'll paint it blue for you, I'll paint it blue for you
You gave me love, a love so strong
I treated you so bad, I treated you wrong
Now I want to show, I feel so low, I'm blue for you

When I was younger I tried so hard
To find a good woman and give her my love
I found a woman sweet as can be, I found a woman for me
I didn't know I had the world
I was still looking for ways to your love
Now that I know, I feel so low, I'm blue for you

Cheatin' and lyin', I played around
Livin' and dyin', you stood your ground
Cheatin' and lyin', you knew so well
There's no good denying, you know me too well

When I'm alone I realise
Your eyes were smilin' but deep inside
I saw the blue in you, everything blue for you
You gave me love, a love so strong
I treated you so bad, I treated you wrong
Now I want to show, I feel so low, I'm blue for you
Feel so low, I'm blue for you
I feel so low I'm blue for you

5. Rain

How can I see what I'm leaving for
How can I give what I gave before
How can you tell me that you want me to stay
How can I stay when I'm trying to say
That I can live without the rain
Yes I can live without the rain

How can I feel what I'm trying to feel
How can move when I'm heel to heel
You're always shouting about the doubt in my eye
But I can't answer 'cos my eyes are so dry
Now I can live without the rain
Yes I can live without the rain

I can live without the rain
That's falling on my head
Rain that's falling on my head

Rain that's falling
Rain that's falling
Rain that's falling on my head

I started thinking back to you know when
I'd like to send a line but then again
How can I write you when there ain't no light
I'm feeling thight tonight and that's alright
Now I can live without the rain
Yes I can live without the rain

6. Rolling home

Me and my lady love the way you're movin'
Me and my lady love
All night long you've got us up and groovin'
Reelin' and rollin' along
Saturday night you made it alright
And everyone liked your reelin' and rollin' along
Me and my lady love the way you're rollin' home

Late last night my motor broke a rotor
Broken down by the road
Even though I need it I just had to leave it
Head down to the show
There in the crowd my lady I found
Movin' around reelin' and rollin' along
Me and my lady love the way you're rollin' home

Don't you ever lose it don't you ever blues it
Don't you ever change your way
People try to ban you don't they understand you
Don't you think that's a shame
I was alone no where to go
Now I've a love and a lady to take me along
Me and my lady love the way you're rollin' home
Me and my lady love the way you're rollin' home
Me and my lady love the way you're rollin' home

7. That's a fact

Sitting in a cornfield
Looking at the cob
Thinking of a long line
Waiting for a job
And I'm alone and that's a fact
I'm alone and that's a fact

Sitting in a full car
someone at the wheel
Going to a new stop
I wonder if it's real
And I'm alone and that's a fact
And I'm alone and that's a fact

I need to maybe talk to you
Said I need to and said I need you
I need to I need to be with you
I said I need to I gotta see you

Sitting at a new stop
Didn't get the job
Couldn't find a long line
Took another drop
And I'm alone and that's a fact
So I'm alone and that's a fact

Sitting at a new stop
Didn't get the job
Couldn't find a long line
Took another drop
And I'm alone and that's a fact
So I'm alone and that's a fact
So I'm alone and that's a fact

8. Ease your mind

I'm gonna ease your mind, I'm gonna write a line
And write a letter to you
I'm gonna let you know that I'll be coming home
And make it better with you

I sang a sad lullaby
I left you all alone to cry
Well I need you, oh my
Just to sing a lullaby
It won't be very long before I right my wrongs
And make it better with you.

It's such a crying shame I had to break away
To find the same old road
But now I'm getting wise, and I've realised
That that's the way that it goes

So put a smile upon your face
Let me know I've found my place
We've got no time to waste
'Cos all the time for heaven's late.
Now don't you be afraid, it's gonna be the same
I'll make it better with you

I'm gonna ease your mind, I'm gonna write a line
And write a letter to you
I'm gonna sign my name and send it straight away
And I'll be following through

I sang a sad lullaby
I left you all alone to cry
Well I need you, oh my
Just to sing a lullaby
It won't be very long before I right my wrongs
And make it better with you.

9. Mystery song

I see that look on your face
I see that look on your face
I see that look on your face, oh-oh-oh

The boys know what you're giving, you give the boys such a lot
of fun
And by the way that you make a living you've got the boys all on
the run
S.T.'s showing, you really got me going maybe you can give me a
price
I wanna try it, yeah I wanna buy it, tell me would you treat me
nice
Oh my legs are shaking, oh my heart is breaking
I'm just feeling like a boy
Now I just can't slow down, gotta get in, go down
Have my share of what a joy

Now I've got your name and number, I like to look upon your
face
And now you know that I wanna take you, give me the time you can
name
the place
Call me honey, you can take my money, baby we can make a deal
I really mean it, gotta get between it, do you know the way I
feel?
Oh I'm feeling kinda like I've gotta find a way to make you
understand
Oh I know you're lying and your love I'm buying
Oh I'm feeling like a man

The boys know what you're giving, you give the boys such a lot
of fun
And by the way that you make a living you've got the boys all on
the run
S.T.'s showing, really got them going, you can even say the
price
They'll wanna try it, even wanna buy it if you really treat them
nice
But I'd rather take you, show that I can make you
Good enough for just one man
Oh I'm feeling kinda like I've gotta find a
Way to make you understand
