1. DREAMER

I've got a dollar deal hidden down in my shoe
So listen friends, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna run up the road of mystery
Hangin' by a thread to a fantasy
A background black showing my face
Buried in the image of an empty space

I'm back on my feet
Getting no sleep
Makin' it all mine
Give me a chance
To follow the bands
Waitin' for the sunshine

Husslin' my will in a bar downtown
If it don't work out
I'll keep movin' around and around and around and around

Till I'm back on my feet
Getting no sleep
Makin' it all mine
Give me a chance
To follow the bands
Waitin' for a sun shine

Dreamer Dreamer hangin' around
Dreamer Dreamer trying to hitch a ride
Dreamer Dreamer hangin' around
Dreamer Dreamer when I turn my back you're by my side ooh

Well I fought my way through the backstage door
Staring at my goal till my eyes get sore
And working my way through the little I say
Caring no less just the light of the day
A background black showing my face
Buried in the image of an empty space

I'm back on my feet
Getting no sleep
Makin' it all mine
Give me a chance
To follow the bands
Waitin' for the sunshine yeah

Just a Dreamer Dreamer hangin' a round
Dreamer Dreamer trying to hitch a ride
Dreamer Dreamer hangin' around
Dreamer Dreamer when I turn my back you're by my side

Dreamer Dreamer hangin' around
Dreamer Dreamer trying to hitch a ride
Dreamer Dreamer hangin' a round
Dreamer Dreamer Dreamer Dreamer
(repeat to fade)


2. STEALIN'

Take me across the water 'cause I need some place to hide
I done the rancher's daughter and I sure did hurt his pride aha

Oo..ooo Ooooo Ah ah ah
Oo..ooo Ooooo Ah ah ah

Well there's a hundred miles of desert lies between his hide and mine
I don't need no food and no water, Lord, 'cause I'm running out of time

Fightin', killin', wine and women, gonna put me to my grave
Runnin', hidin', losin', cryin', nothing left to save
But my life

Oo..ooo Ooooo Ah ah ah
Oo..ooo Ooooo Ah ah ah

Stood on a ridge and shunned religion thinking the world was mine
I made my break and a big mistake stealin' when I should've been buyin'

All that fightin', killin', wine and those women, gonna put me to an early grave
Runnin', hidin', losin', cryin', nothing left to save
But my life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life,

So I stood on a ridge and shunned religion thinking the world was mine
I made my break and a big mistake stealin' when I should've been buyin'
I was stealin' when I should've been buyin'
I was stealin' when I should've been buyin' yeah
Stealin' when I should've been buyin'
(repeat with adlib vocals)


3. ONE DAY

One Day, One Day, One Day, One Day
One Day, One Day

Didn't I tell ya everything was gonna be all right
I never doubted it was just a matter of time
And though I've travelled across the desert of despair
I knew I'd get there yeah one day

How times have changed, I been a rea-rearranging everything
But it can't change the love I felt when I get back home to you
I am the same, it's just a game that I chose to play
But remember I can lose as fast as I won one day

I still remember the hole in the wall
Where we all sat though you said we'd fall
The dusty yard and the broken down barn
Where you and me used to share a yarn
But it's gone now

But didn't I tell ya that everything was gonna be all right
I never doubted it was just a matter of time
And though I travelled across the desert of despair
I knew I'd get there one day, one day
I'd get there one day


4. SWEET FREEDOM

As you look around you, do you like what you see?
Though it sometimes makes you lonely, do you like being free?
And are you sure you'll be okay without my company?
I just want you to be happy, even if it's not with me

Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet, sweet
Will the line between all this
And my love ever meet
Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet, sweet

What I'm really tryin' to say is that I will be around
Should you find that after all you can't get by with what you found
Oh it wasn't just my heart you took and gently tossed into the sea
Though it's hard to find the words I need
I guess it was me - oh I guess it was me oh

Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet, sweet
Will the line between all this
And my love ever meet
Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet, sweet

Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet, sweet
Will the line between all this
And my love ever gonna meet
Sweet, sweet freedom
Sweet, sweet, sweet

Sweet (so sweet) sweet (oh sweet, sweet, sweet) freedom
Sweet (so sweet) sweet (so so) sweet
Sweet (oh sweet) sweet (oh sweet, sweet, sweet) freedom
Sweet (so sweet) sweet (so sweet so) sweet


5. IF I HAD THE TIME

If I had the time,
To re-live my life
I don't think I'd care,
To change a thing
As long as I find,
Just a little peace of mind
I can dream and laugh and sing

I can have my fun,
With the silver stars
I can watch the sun,
Fall in the sea
And if it rains,
I will smile just the same
For the rain will make the flowers sing

I know how it is to feel sad
I know how it is when things go bad
But I'm sure that I have found the way
I'm happy here and here I'll stay whoa
Here I'll stay

If I had the time,
To re-live my life
I don't think I'd care,
To change a thing
As long as I find,
Just a little peace of mind
I can dream and laugh and I can sing


6. SEVEN STARS

Don't try to be anything else but what you are
Don't try to do anything else but the things you do
'Cause I had a dream about the seven stars
And the seven good things that you are
To me

The very reason I'm livin' is just for lovin' you
And the seasons are changin' makin' it all come true
'Cause with the spring and the clearing skies
Love's soft light will fill my eyes
For you

Who fills my head with these dreams
As I'm leaving my mind
Leaving my mind
Seven new stars are born, seven lie waiting to die
Seven new stars

The very reason I'm livin' is just for lovin' you
And the seasons are changin' makin' it all come true
'Cause I had a dream about the seven stars
And the seven good things that you are
To me

Who fills my head with these dreams
As I'm leaving my mind
Leaving my mind
Seven new stars are born, seven lie waiting to die
Seven new stars

Who fills my head with these dreams
As I'm leaving my mind
Leaving my mind
Seven new stars are born, seven lie waiting to die
Seven new stars

Who fills my head with these dreams
As I'm leaving my mind
Leaving my mind
Seven new stars are born, seven lie waiting to die
Seven new stars

7. CIRCUS

Walkin' around this concrete garden
Viewing all in vain
Thinking why a dream is driving everyone insane

Then something will come and make you feel
The master in control
Still you're pickin' up and screwing anyone
Who's gotta soul

I've been here far too long to remember
Sights and sounds from this town of clowns

Makin' up, dressin' up and walkin' around
Thinkin' that you're Greta Garbos
I'm sorry my dears but we only sat down
And laughed and laughed in sorrow
But it was you that opened the door, and
It's that we thank you for

Walkin' around this concrete garden
Viewing all in vain
Thinking why a dream is driving everyone insane
Everyone insane
Everyone insane
Everyone's insane


8. PILGRIM

Aaah aaah aaah aaah
Aaah aaah aaah aaah

A pilgrim at the grey of dawn
Leaving in the mist of morning
On his journey of goodness
Heaven sent, God blessed

Pilgrim laughing at the world
Spreading joy at the touch of his hand
Wiping out all the misery
Making love and history

Those of us who don't know war
We shouldn't try to make it
'Cause so many did and even more died
Do you think you could take it

'Cause Love lies waiting at our back door
Such a beautiful matter of fact
Life's like an apple with love as the core
And I'll tell you 'bout that

Just a man in my prime
Love was there but I had no time
I was cheered and adored
And I thought fame was all the world
Battles won and victory cheers
Were the sounds I'd heard for years
But the woman I really loved
Was losing me to all this blood I only knew I had to win
And build a world where I was king
But leaders come and leaders go
And that's the truth I came to know
Love or war I could not choose
And so both I had to lose
