Hurting Kind (I've Got My Eyes on You)

She's the girl of my dreams - she's the girl on my mind
She used to play me for a fool 'cause she's the hurting kind

I lost my heart in the East - another part in the West
You better jump back baby - you're the girl I love the best

I'm gonna ride the wind - there's nothing I won't do
I'm coming up real fast - I got my eyes on you

I see your eyes of love - well tell me what you see
I see your long black hair moving over me

Oh yes, I feel good now, now
Let's talk about love, let's talk about love
Let's talk about love, let's talk about it
Alright, alright, alright, I got my eyes on you
Alright, alright, alright, I got my eyes on you

I lost my heart over here - another part over there
I still got plenty left, and baby I don't care

Oh, let's talk about love, let's talk about love
Alright, alright, alright, I got my eyes on you
Alright, alright, alright, I got my eyes on you

Don't blame me - I won't hurt you - don't blame me
It's plain to see you know the real me

She's the girl of my dreams - she's the girl on my mind
She used to play me for a fool - she's the hurting kind

Gonna go around the world - nothing I won't do
Coming up real fast - I got my eyes on you
Alright, alright, alright, I got my eyes on you
Alright, alright, alright, I got my eyes on you --

IconBig Love

I hear a far-away voice on the telephone line
Tell me what to think will tell apart
Said how about 4,000 miles, and 21 years
Do you think that's enough for a start?

I'm up to fifteen thousand and holding
Pass the time just smiling at you
But this seat belt is kind of exposing
Putting pressure on my big love for you
My big love for you, my big love for you - my big, my big --
My big love for you, my big love for you - my big, my big --

Will the hostess think I'm exploding?
Must have finally got this bird off the ground
Girl, oh girl, if my tank's overloading
She's weighted and she loves to go down
She loves to go down, she loves to go down - she loves, she loves --
She loves to go down, she loves to go down - she loves, she loves --

When I fly your friendly skies how I love the big surprise
I will fill your cup with fire - just give me your free air miles

When I fly her friendly skies [etc repeated]

I take myself down the aisle to the bathroom
Are you sure that there's room here for two
She says: "fifteen thousand and hold him"
As we talk about my big love for you
Yes we talk about my big, we talk about my big
We talk about my big love for you

How I love your friendly skies
I will fill your cup with fire (my big, my big, my big)
When I fly her friendly skies how I love her big surprise
I will fill your cup with fire (she loves, she loves, she loves)
Hello baby, I just love to fly, fly, fly
I been five days - I've been saving up all of my free air miles
I got nylon stockings - I got chocolate bars
I got nautilus equipment - I got a new Lincoln car
One time I saw Las Vegas
(She loves, my big, she loves)
I stopped in a motel - I slept in the same room as Jimmy Page
They just finished remodelling it from the '75 tour
I got my free air miles
(She loves, she loves, my big)
When I fly her friendly skies how I love her big surprise
I will fill your cup with fire (she loves, my big, she loves)
Free air miles - big love
Free air miles - big love --

IconS S S & Q

I'll kiss the flower in your hair
I'll kiss your flower everywhere
I give my love but you don't care that I want you

Was it like heaven in your arms?
Or was it some place else that charmed?
My self-control is on my arm - I want you

Here comes the rain again - there goes another lonely day
If I could only whisper to you across the whole, I'll say

I've spent the hours in your caress
Your caress is still the best
Oh mother of God, I've made a mess - I love you

Here comes the rain again [etc repeated]

Girl, girl - all my world
Make me, take me if you would
Soak, shake, splash, and quake
Taste your flower - tastes so good

Here comes the rain again - there goes another lonely day
If I could only whisper to you across the whole, I'll say
Here comes the pain again, while you're so far away
I lie and wonder whether it's just too much to pay

My close attention took my seed
You satisfy my every need
Gonna let it grow for another year
I need you, I need you, I need you --

Girl, girl - all my world [etc repeated]

IconI Cried

I cried, babe - oh, I cried
I saw you in a movie - or was it on my wall
I never dreamed you'd talk to me - I never dreamed at all

You figured very strongly - you might have changed my life
Oh, I was very young then - you came along just right
This is what I cried
Now you know I cried

I walked the stellar ceiling - my feet were off the ground
You talked of something permanent when Saturday comes round
This is what I cried
This is why I cried
This is what I cried
Now you know I cried

Kisses gone crazy - come on, tease me till I scream
Promise is a maybe, running through my dream
It's what I hear you whisper, soft across my room
Chase my whole confusion - wrest me from my gloom
This is what I cried
Now you know I cried

Your eyes are where the summer lives in pools of quiet fire
Come mess with my sincerity - go down on my desire
I feast on your expression - the smile that tells it all
On my mind forever - forever on my wall
This is what I cried
Now you know I cried
This is what I cried
This is what I cried

IconShe Said

Don't bring me fresh horses - let me ride the wild beat
Women in houses - I can't deal with their heat
If this is salvation, I'm not sure if it's theirs anymore

Reveal me treasures - my loan to ye own
I'm not quite sure
Maybe baby - just a little misinformed
It's funny honey - I can swear that I've seen it before
I don't know why, I don't know why

Ten men standing with their backs to the wall
Shrink from the knowledge - they throw gold in a hole
What's really sad, you know - they don't mind at all

Don't give me gestures - you don't know what they mean
Same old expressions - same familiar old themes
Your body's talking - I can swear that I've heard it all before

I don't know why you lied, I don't know why you lied
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know why
She said
I don't know why you lied, I don't know why you lied
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know why

You know when the deal goes down
It's time to leave and you're on your own
I will walk with you - in my very heart you'll find a home

She said: "Maybe you will"
I said: "Maybe I will, maybe I won't - with me, I won't"
She said: "Maybe you will"
I said: "Whatever you do is whatever you do"
Whatever you do is whatever you do
Whatever you do, whatever you do
And she said

Come let me ride - come let me ride the wild beast
Come let me ride - come let me ride the wild beast --

IconNirvana

Love is in the stars - love's heaven sent
Brush your lips and mine - taste my good intent
Lay it on real close, inside my crazy arms
Come on feel your Daddy's love, I won't do you no harm

How you feel inside - you are the enchanter
Take me on through the night - fantasy in the desert

Calm my raging fire - meld my love control
Coax me with your showers of love - feel my body roll

How you feel inside [etc repeated]

Love will seize the mind - its power at your command
Prisoner in your arms of love - captive in your hands

How you feel inside [etc repeated]

Oh Nirvana
I love you, love you, love you, love you

How you feel inside [etc repeated]

Oh Nirvana
I love you, love you, love you, love you

Holy Moses - mi amigo
Mystic biscuit - mind your lingo
Walk in circles - stand by truth
Watch out boys - she's after you
She's after you - she's gonna get you
Here she comes - watch out!

IconTie Dye On The Highway

Tie dye on the highway - see the garlands in your hair
If you're going my way, come along
What a beautiful sky - we just had to stop and stare
See the beautiful colours fill the air

(Oh, just the messengers of peace)
Oh, do you remember - across the burning years
Sweet smell of the mystery I recall
Hang me on Miguel - a smile through all my fears
O high Olympus, touch our soul

With the messengers of peace and the company of love
All the passion and release, and love from up above
Say you will come back with me - say you will come back

Tie dye on the highway - the wheels still turn around
Dance to the mariachi - take my hand
Hope springs eternal when laughter's feeling sound
Move in the mystic wasted land

With the messenger of peace and the company of love
All the passion and release, and love from up above
(You know that it is true)
From the desert in my art, where the innocent may love
All the passions they release, and the love from up above
Say you will come back with me - say you will come back
Say you will come back with me - say you will come back

IconYour Ma Said You Cried In Your Sleep Last Night

Your ma said you cried in your sleep last night
Your ma said you cried in your sleep last night
Should have seen the look in her eye
I had to tell her some little white lies

I know I haven't been so true to you
I know I haven't been so true to you
Don't you cry, don't you cry, don't you cry no more
Ain't gonna be the way it was before

Oh, I love you - oh, I love you
Let me kiss you - let me hold you tight
Oh, I love you - oh, I love you so much
My ma said I cried, my ma said I cried
My ma said I cried in my sleep last night

All the other guys got their eyes on you
All the other guys got their eyes on you
I'm comin' home, comin' home, comin' home for sure
Ain't gonna be the way it was before

Oh, I love you - oh, I love you
Let me kiss you - let me hold you tight
Oh, I love you - oh, I love you
I need you so much, and my ma said I cried
My ma said I cried, my ma said I cried
My ma said I cried in my sleep last night

Said hey hey, mama, said the way you move
Gonna make you sweat - gonna make you groove
Cause I love you - I love you
Oh oh, child - said the way you swing
Gonna make you burn - gonna make you sting
'Cause I love - 'cause I love you so much
And my ma said I cried, my ma said I cried
My ma said I cried in my sleep last night

IconAnniversary

What is this land, that I have found
There is silence all around
It's the anniversary

Feel the fear and sad decree
Keeps my fragile heart at beat
On the anniversary

Through these dark and lonely streets
Drag my ragged grainy feet
It's the anniversary, the anniversary
It's the anniversary

How far is hate away from this
I, reluctant, feel your kiss
On the anniversary, the anniversary
The anniversary

Don't want to feel your kiss no more --

IconLiars Dance

Far four winds blow
There's trouble and it won't go
I'd really like to help you but you know
Truth twist - liars dance
Money, money - greed, chance
Let's take a little more before we go
Cause we won't be back again
No, we won't be back again

Trees cry - men bow
Kneel before the fatted cow
Let's take a little moo before we go
We won't be back again
No, we won't be back again
Oh, we won't be back again

Tell me Jesus what to do
A little time for me, and none for you
Just leave it to the lady who's sure
She won't be back again
I know she won't be back again
I'm sure she won't be back again
Oh, she won't be back again

IconWatching You

In sleep I am drawn - I feel guilty at dawn
Come over the mountains, come over the sea
Should my darkness prevail - does your memory fail?
Oh love on the wing, carry my prayer
Cherish this moment in times of despair
Over the mountains, over the sea
Angel of love, come back home to me

Are your kisses so warm - can you carry my storm?
I look at the moon and you're gone
Love on the wing, carry my prayer
Cherish this moment in times of despair
Over the mountains, over the sea
Angel of love, please come on home to me
Come back home, come back home, come back home

Love on the wing, carry my prayer
Cherish this moment in times of despair
Over the mountains, over the sea
Angel of love, bring it back home to me
Come back home to me

I see my disgrace - can I touch you right now?
From this beautiful place
I see my disgrace - can I touch you right now?
I'm tired of watching you
Oh, I'm tired of watching you
