01. Dreamin'

I've got a dollar deal hidden
Down in my shoe
So listen friends
I 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
And f it don't work out now
'll keep movin' around and around ...

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

A dreamer, a dreamer
Hangin' around
A dreamer, a dreamer
Trying to hitch a ride
A dreamer, a dreamer
Hangin' around
A dreamer, a dreamer
When I turn my back
You're by my side

Well I fought my way
Through the back-stage 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
I'm waitin' for the sunshine, yeah

Just a dreamer ...
When I turn by back
You're by my side
Dreamer ...


02. 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

Well, there's a
Hundred miles of desert
Lies between his hide and mine
I don't need no food
And no water, Lord
'Cos 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

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...

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'
Stealin', when I should've been buyin'
I was stealin' ...


03. One Day

One day ...

Didn't I tell ya
Everything was gonna be alright
I never doubted
It was just a matter of time
And though I've travelled
Across the desert of despair
I know I'll get there one day

How times have changed
I better re-arrange it everything
But it can't change the love I bring
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 alright
I never doubted
It was just a matter of time
Though I've travelled
Across the desert of despair
I know I'll get there one day
One day ...
I'll get there one day


04. 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

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

Oh sweet, oh sweet sweet freedom
So sweet, so sweet


05. 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 I can 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
Here I'll stay


06. 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 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 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
Seven new stars are born
Seven are waiting to die

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 seven stars
And the seven good things
That you are to me

Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz ...


07. 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 picking up
And screwing anyone
Who's got a soul

I've been here
Far too long to remember
Sights and sounds
From this town of clowns
Makin' up, dressin' up
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

Everyone insane ...
Everyone's insane


08. Pilgrim

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
So many did and even more died
Do you think you could take it?

Love lies waiting at my 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 women 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 couldn't choose
And so both I had to lose
