Method To My Madness-Bee Gees

I've played the game, still it's not worth it
Like a woman in the rain
I close my eyes
I'm on the shelf
I know myself

I've seen the lights of ev'ry city
Tried to work out where I am
I close my mind for the day
I know the way

I've played the game, still it's not worth it
Like a woman in the rain
So I close my eyes
I'm on the shelf
I know my self

There's never ever anybody to rely on
There isn't time to count the shoulders I have cried on
That's just circumstances, I must take my chances
But, baby you don't know what I'm saying
But I guess that's not true
And you know that's true
But there's a method to my madness

I've played the game, still it's not worth it
Like a woman in the rain
So I close my eyes for the day
I know the way

Come Home Johnny Bride-Bee Gees

I'm full of pride and my heart feels good
Got news from my fam'ly up in the woods
At last I can go back where I belong
Sweated it all out for nine long years
Couldn't believe the voice in my ears
When the man saying "No hiding ,son"

So I left the only folks I had known
I was fifteen then, hardly grown
When they found me in the swamp face down in the mud
Couldn't get back and I couldn't go far
Said to myself stay right where you are
Done found yourself a Ma and Pa
Ev'rybody said the kid's no good

Come home Johnny Bride come home
Johnny Bride come home
We're all wrong without you
How did we ever doubt you
He confessed to the killing
It's his role we had you filling
We didn't really mean to make you sad
But when you ran you made us think that you were twice as bad

I left the only folks I had known
I was fifteen then , hardly grown
When they found me in the swamp face down in the mud
Couldn't get back and I couldn't go far
Said to myself stay right where you are
Done found yourself a Ma and Pa
Ev'rybody said the kid's no good

Come Home Johnny Bride come home
Johnny Bride come home
We're all wrong without you
How did we ever doubt you
He confessed to the killing
It's his role we had you filling
We didn't really mean to make you sad
But when you ran you made us think that you were twice as bad

[repeat last verse and fade out about line 6]

My Life Has Been A Song-Bee Gees


Sweet simple song of diff'rent lights and diff'rent shades
The sound of life erupts and fades and all the world must play along
My life has been a song

Here as I sleep, the love I dream will gently creep
Inside my heart I softly keep the tune that plays too long
My life has been a song

Ev'ry sound in my head, ev'ry word that I said is like a melody melody
That no little person like me could ever change
Ev'ry sound in the street , all the cold and the heat
is like a symphony symphony
Which has never before been rearranged

Sweet simple song of diff'rent lights and diff'rent shades
The sound of life erupts and fades and all the world must play along
My life has been a song

Ev'ry sound in my head , ev'ry word that I said is like a melody melody
That no little person like me could ever change
Ev'ry sound in the street , all the cold and the heat
is like a symphony symphony
Which has never before been rearranged

Sweet simple song of diff'rent lights and diff'rent shades
The sound of life erupts and fades and all the world must play along
My life has been a song

Ev'ry sound in my head , ev'ry word that I said is like a melody melody
That no little person like me could ever change
Ev'ry sound in the street , all the cold and the heat
is like a symphony symphony
Which has never before been rearranged

While I Play-Bee Gees

I cry tears of emotion to spread across the USA
Ain't no sunshine cowboy in your pockets
I'll make my own way , while I play

Baby you forgot your living
Someone covered up your eyes
In my way at least I'm giving what I love
Am I wise

There's gonna be some confusion
And there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and you'll look to the skies
And you'll pray , while I play

I am my father's son or that is what I heard
Maybe I got it wrong
I didn't mean a word
You got my face and I'll play your ace
Pretend I haven't heard

There's gonna be some confusion
And there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and you'll look to the skies
And you'll pray , while I play

I am a minstreal , that is all I want to be
I'll play inside your soul
I'll show you to yourself
Fill your head with wild emotions
A symphony in wealth

There's gonna be some confusion
And there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and you'll look to the skies
And you'll pray , while I play

I will take my leave , I gotta move ontime
I played inside your soul , made you sing along
I will return to find out if the melody was wrong

There's gonna be some confusion
And there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and you'll look to the skies
And you'll pray , while I play

Ain't It A Shame-Air Supply

Hit with the bug to run, you didn't go to college we can use you son
You look like the pride of your home town
But how can you hold out when your luck is down

[Chorus:]
Ain't it a shame, ain't it a shame, ain't it a shame, ain't it a shame.
Because I'm too tired to run around
Meeting people from the wrong side of town
Looking for a place to live, I've got no money nothing to give, listen
All you gotta do is look around for something that's new
find a job that's stimulating, that's easy and I'm still waiting

[Chorus]

I've stood in line and done my time
With nothin' to do all day
I've stood in line with all my friends
With nothin' to say all day,
I've stood in line and done my time
With nothin' to do all day
I've stood in line with all my friends
With nothin' to say all day, nothin' to say all day.
Got brains but got no drive
Money's cheap, the roads are wide
All the good positions go too fast
I need a job I know will last
I've got a job for you can you push that shovel can you swing that broom
Keep your head down and don't go slow
But don't forget to stop with the whistle.

[Chorus]

Strangers In Love-Air Supply

Strangers in love must a star fall from the sky
It's stranger than most and stranger when we try
to understand it all, why we fall,
As strangers in love,
Strangers in love.
Straight from the farm and a world apart and ready for-
Someone to take her arm, she's never seen a movie
What an innocent face, what an innocent place.
It's natural, it's an easy thing to do,
Natural, it's an easy thing to do.
Strangers in love and a star fell from the sky
Don't know which way to turn, don't know which boat to burn
Don't know which way to turn, don't know which boat to burn.
Strangers in love
[Repeat].

We Are All Alone-Air Supply

We are all alone that's the way it seems to be
Love is in my sight and I can see it if you can
Where do we come from, I've been waiting for so long
We are all alone, say you will.
The lights have all gone home and are safely tucked away
There's nothing to come between us but the words we've got to say

[Chorus:]
Where do we come from I've been waiting for so long
We are all alone.

And now we are both here are we really within reach
Of the things we need to do c'est a ou c'est la vie

[Chorus]

And now we can both spend all the time that's come our way
I'm not going to let you go for another single day

[Chorus]

It's Not Easy-Air Supply

And the money she gave me, wasn't enough to pay the rent,
But before I get some all my money's long been spent,
It's nice to get away from all the noise back home
It's harmless in a way we don't have that far to go.

And in June we're three,
And it's nice, cos I love you, cos I love you, cos I love you.
With the rain came freedom, never was one more word so true
In the ragged morning then the word came alive in you
And I tried, and I tried for you
It's not easy, cos I love you, cos I love you, cos I love you.
All the food that we could buy wasn't enough to keep just one alive.
But we came through summer letting autumn close your eyes.
And I tried, and I tried for you.
I can take it, cos I love you, cos I love you, cos I love you.
It's not easy, cos I love you, cos I love you, that's all.

Love And Other Bruises-Air Supply


As the time slips through your fingers
Till it's almost time to go
And the morning breaks between us
And the ice melts into snow.
I'm alright loving you
I'm alright loving you

[Chorus:]
Love and other bruises didn't have to choose us
But it did and I'm alive and I'm trying to survive
Love and other bruises makes us all good losers
I can't help it talking loud it's because I'm on a cloud.

Won't you please take me home
Won't you please please take me home
I'm so mixed up over you
I don't want to be alone.
I'm alright loving you
I'm alright loving you

[Chorus]

The Weight Is My Soul-Air Supply

In the night when you're lonely and you can't find a word for how you feel
There's a place that you know of where the lights are so low they're hardly real,
In a chair on the front verandah is a weight with a thought to set you free.
The weight is my soul
The weight is my soul, come to me.
I can see through the streetlights where the evening air is turning round
All I hear is the hangin' of the moon and the stars on the sky.
In a chair on the front verandah is a weight with a thought to set you free.
The weight is my soul
The weight is my soul, come to me.
Have you thought of the times when your heart and your mind are free
Have you thought of the times when your heart and your mind are free
In the night when you're lonely and you can't find a word for how you feel,
There's a place that you know of where the lights are so low they're hardly real,
In a chair on the front verandah is a weight with a thought to set you free
The weight is my soul
The weight is my soul, come to me.

Secret Agent-Air Supply


Well I've got friends in the States
And I've got friends out in space
When information's your game
The whole world knows your name
And so they gave me a code
To work this treacherous road
For all the agents I know
Must work incognito

[Chorus:]
I love my trade,
I've got my future made.
I put my life on the line
To save this country of mine
And they reward me with love
And see I have a good time.
So all my moves must be fast
Cos every day is my last
A secret agent that's slow
Almost certain to go.


[Chorus]
I've got friends in the States
I've got friends out in space
When information's your game
The whole world knows your name
And so they gave me a code
To work this treacherous road
For all the agents I know
Must work incognito.

Early Christmas Morning-Cyndi Lauper

Listen to the children sing
Watch them dancing all 'round the Christmas tree ...
Waiting for the opening
Early Christmas morning ...

All around the world is sleeping
Little children there's no peeping
Wait and see what Santa's bringing
Early Christmas morning ...

Icicles and breakfast cakes ...
Friends and family we will celebrate
Sounds that joy and laughter make
Early Christmas morning ...

All around and far off places
Angels waken smiling faces
Wrapping us with love and graces
Early Christmas morning ...
Early Christmas morning ...

Brimstone And Fire-Cyndi Lauper

I met a woman at the laundry mat
She left her sock in my dryer
I met a woman in a yellow cap
It said brimstone and fire
I said is this luck ? With just a glance
She smiled, and I thought, is this a sign ?
From above or below ? ... Oh no ... Brimstone ...
Brimstone and fire ...

The next week at the cinema
She pur her hand on my shoulder
She almost kissed me walking home
And I didn't even scold her
Then I said where is this leading with just a heavy sigh
I quickened my pace and she was following
as if her heart would never tire
Brimstone and fire, brimstone and fire ...

Now we have dinner every Saturday
I make spaghetti, she brings cake
I make spaghetti with tomato sauce,
Because that's all I can make
And when she lights the candles
I think, here we go ...
But it's so pleasant after all
And I say very low
Don't forget to light the fire

Brimstone and fire ...
Brimstone and fire ...
Brimstone and fire ...

Fearless-Cyndi Lauper


Sometimes I'm afraid when you go
Sometimes I'm afraid when you come home
Underneath it all ...
I think I'm afraid when there's nothing wrong.

But if I was fearless ...
Could I be your reckless friend
And if I was helpless ...
Could you be the one comes rushing in.

There's something that I never told
When I find myself slipping off of my pedestal
I'm a fierce believer afraid to fall.

But if I was fearless ...
Could I be your reckless friend
And if I was helpless ...
Could you be the one comes rushing in.

Sometimes I'm afraid of the dark
I can't find the light in my heart
I can see my hand pushing away
Hard as I can

But if I was fearless ...
Could I be your wreckless friend
And if I was helpless ...
Could be the one comes rushing in.

Sometimes I'm afraid when you go ...

Mother-Cyndi Lauper

Over land and over sea
She reaches out to me
Weaving and threading the loom
From womb to womb

Slaves and merchants
Pilgrims and thieves
Felt her hand and charted skys
By following her moon

Mother ... Mother ... Mother ...

Some came and built with stone and bone
Some planted fields on promised land
And harvested their dreams,
Then disappeared
As generations lose their memory
I'll try and remind my heart ...
And hope that it will set me free

Mother ... Mother ... Mother ...

Condeming my true nature
I stood outside of myself ... outside of myself
Conditioning is what made me
Lose sight of myself ... lose sight of myself ...
Lose sight

Ravens cry out,
Tides pull in,
Somehow she replenishes ...
Giving birth again

Mother ... Mother ... Mother ...

Say A Prayer-Cyndi Lauper

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom cut down
Far too soon under the scarlet moon ...
Under the scarlet moon ...
Say a prayer ...

So, what are you weaving there marionette
Keepin' your balance by a single thread ...
Keepin' your heart strings tight and pure
All you can muster and nothing more and nothing more
Until you're sore and still you're sore when do you soar ...
Sometimes justice is the line you walk or sign,
But justice is complex and a matter of time
Sometimes it's hanging in the balance or
Dancing in the shadow like a silhouette
So what are you weaving there marionnette ...
So what are you weaving there marionnette ...
Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom cut down
Far too soon under the scarlet moon
Say a prayer, go on say a prayer ...

Some people get a sadness so long
They just go on thinking it's a natural thing
Some people throw their hands in the sky
And they wonder why god don't reply
Well it's strange, strange time all our friends
Dropping like flies everything that's come to pass
All the time we thought would last.
Well I'll just button my coat and cover my neck
I got barely enough time to catch my breath ...
All these pictures I can't forget ...
It can fill your cup with regret ...
It can fill your cup with regret
Say a prayer, for all the souls in bloom ...
Say a prayer... Say a prayer ...

Searching-Cyndi Lauper

Feel like I'm crawling on my belly
Longing and glad ...
Excited at prospects,
Humbled and mad
Needy as a baby ...
I just need a helpin' hand ...
Hold me like a cradle
With a touch you might understand ...
I'm searchin' ...
I'm searchin' ...

There I go jumping out of my skin.
Wound a little right.
Have to throw these covers down
To get some sleep tonight.
Tuck my heart in your pocket.
My dreams are insecure.
I could drink you to the marrow
And still cry out for more
'Cause I'm searching ...
I'm searching ...
And sometimes I feel like I'm just flying blind ...
And I can't help myself ...
And I can't stop myself ...

Unhook The Stars-Cyndi Lauper

Hot Gets A Little Cold-Cyndi Lauper

Heaven,
You say it could be heaven ...
But I don't really know ...
Lovers come and go ...
When hot gets a little cold.

Infatuation is just the great anticipation
Of starring in that picture show
Let's wait until the credits roll ...
When hot gets a little cold.

I could get carried away but not anymore ...
What was it I heard you say you love me 'cause I'm strong
I hope that you're not wrong.

Heaven, you say it could be heaven,
Well I don't really know ...
I'll try not to let it show
When hot gets a little cold ...
When hot gets a little cold ...
When hot gets a little cold ...

Love To Hate-Cyndi Lauper

Fashion fascists out in droves,
Some with powder up their nose ...
And the money men who had to steal away.
Telling stories who they've had.
Who's a no count, who looks bad.
Then they turn around and say how much they like you ...
Like you ... Like you ? No.

I love to hate you... I love to hate you ... I really do.

Playing games with people lives
Change the rules when stakes are high.
All the vampires come out at night to play ...
Things are different today, that is always what you say.
Well maybe so, except for people like you ...
Like you ... Like you ? No.

I love to hate you ...

Look around you can't look down.
You might miss out on what you think is cool ... You fool.

You've decided who I am, in this brief experience
And if it's worth spending your precious time on me.
My friend Mel he could relate,
Told me once I love to hate
I get so hot the words get stuck
Stuck like you ...
Like you ... Like you ? No.

I love to hate you ...
It's not just the clothes that you wear
Or the way you do your hair
It's just you.

You Don't Know-Cyndi Lauper

You don't know where you belong
You should be more careful
As you follow blindly along ...
You just need to belong somehow.

Relying on rhetoric ...
Not well versed on topics ...
Any idea what you're talking about ?
Revisions of history
Fair well in some company
But don't shove that bullshit down my throat

You don't know where you belong ...
You should be more careful
As you follow blindly along ...
To find something to swear to ...
Till you don't know what's right from wrong
You just need to belong somehow.

Left suppresses right
Right suppresses left
So what's the left, and what's right ?
You're told what to wear,
You're told what to like
I'd be nice if you'd think for yourself sometime,
But you don't.

Now you don't know where you belong ...
You should be more careful
As you follow blindly along ...

Mix sheer hypocrisy with mediocrity
You'll play it safe every time -
So life turns up empty
And you're so dissatisfied
Who are you blaming this time ?
Don't you know ?

fall into your dreams-Cyndi Lauper

Little baby, on my shoulder
I could fall into your dreams ...
Wrap myself up, all around you
Till you don't know what it means.

Dont lie shrugging your shoulders now like I shouldn't stare.
Don't sigh so deep.
Are you the kind of man that I hoped you would or wouldn't be ?

Maybe baby's gone to sleep ...
Maybe baby's gone to sleep.

Pull myself a little closer,
I could feel your body breath
Hear the pulsing of my heartbeat
Rhyming rhythms endlessly.

If I could catch three wishes from a falling star,
One I would keep ...
And two I would put on your pillow with a lullaby ...
Maybe baby's gone to sleep
Maybe baby's gone ...

Hold on to a thought at the end of the day ...
Someday we'll be watching the clouds as they're drifting away.
And you might think about leaving but I'll always stay.

Little baby on my shoulder,
I could fall into your dreams
Wrap yourself up all around me
Till you don't know what it means ...
I could fall into your dreams ...
I could fall into your dreams ...
Maybe baby's gone to sleep ...

Ballad Of Cleo And Joe-Cyndi Lauper

Every day the clock kicks off the beat.
Little Joe struggles just to get up on his feet.
Waits in his platforms for the right train to come.
Sipping his coffee another day has begun ...

Little Joe got work for minimum wage.
Tries to get through another dead beat day.
At five o'clock he comes home to change,
Takes him many hours just to rearrange...

And he works his body just to be somebody.
There's a woman in the mirror looking like a dream.
And he works his body...
And he feels somebody...
And the working boy becomes a dancing queen.

Every night the DJ kicks off the beat.
Little Cleo's jumping just to get up on her feet.
Waits in her platforms for the right song to come.
Sipping her cocktail another night has begun.

And he works his body just to be somebody.
There's a woman in the mirror looking like a dream.
And he works his body...
And he feels somebody...
And the working boy becomes a dancing queen.

Every morning the clock kicks off the beat.
Little Joe struggles just to get up on his feet.
Waits in his platforms for the right train to come...

Sisters Of Avalon-Cyndi Lauper

Felt someone calling me into the howling of the wind.
I heard the reflection of a sound echoing through my skin ...
And a distant drum rumbling under ground gently guides me on ...
Through my wild heart ...
Whispering to me the Sisters Of Avalon...
Sisters Of Avalon... Sisters Of Avalon...

She is awakening in dark swells and mystery.
Unbridled night mares powerful and running free.
You could still hear her cries reverberating through the trees...
For the trampled flowers, the daughters of Eve, the Sisters of Avalon...
Sisters Of Avalon... Sisters Of Avalon...

They brought her in in a new white dress...
But the stain left an ache on her mother's breast...
Now all that's left are the ghostly steps from a distant corridor...

And a distant drum rumbling under ground gently guides me on ...
Through my wild heart ...
Whispering to me the Sisters Of Avalon...
Sisters Of Avalon...
Come on sisters... Come on sister...
