01. Achilles Last Stand

Music & lyrics by Page/Plant
It was an April morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could we say no

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
Oh, the songs to sing, when we at last return again

Sending off a glancing kiss, to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss,
The devil's in his hole

Oh to sail away, To sandy lands and other days
Oh to touch the dream, Hides inside and never seen.

Into the sun the south the north, at last the birds have flown
The shackles of commitment fell, In pieces on the ground

Oh to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud, Dancing as we fought the crowd

To seek the man whose pointing hand, The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path, That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat, As proud the head with heavy feet.

Days went by when you and I, bathed in eternal summers glow
As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering & wandering, What place to rest the search
The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth

The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth...

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth


02. For Your Life

Music & lyrics by Page/Plant
You said I was the only, with my lemon in your hand
Exhibition is your habit, emotion second hand.
Had to pull away to save me, maybe next time around
And she said, 'don't you want it
Don't you want cocaine-cocaine-cocaine
Hadn't planned to, could not stand to try it, fry it, na na na yeah.

Heard a cry for mercy, In the city of the damned
Oh oh babe, damned. Down in the pits you go no lower
The next stop's underground. Oh, hello underground.
Wine and roses ain't quite over, fate deals a losing hand
And I said: didn't mean to... did not mean to fail
You didn't plan it, you over-ran it

You wanna do it, you wanna
You wanna do it when you wanna
You wanna do it, do it when you wanna

When you blow it, babe, you got to blow it right
Oh baby, if you fake it, mama, baby, fake with all your might
When you fake it, mama, please fake it right (for yourself babe)

When you fake it baby,
You're fakin' it for your life, for your life, for your life, for your life
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it when you wanna
Do it, do it, do it, do it when you wanna

Oh, I can have you, baby, but I don't know what to do, yeah
Sometime, baby, nothin' I could do
On the balance of a crystal, payin' through the nose
And when they couldn't resist you, I thought you'd go with the flow.

And now your stage is empty, bring down the curtain, baby please.
Fold up your show
Hadn't planned to, Could not stand to fry in it
Hadn't planned it, I over-ran it, (fryin)
For your life, For your life.


03. Royal Orleans

Music & lyrics by Bonham/Jones/Page/Plant
One time love, take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night, and if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it, sometimes its hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite.

A man I know, went down to Louisiana,
had himself a bad, bad fight
And when the sun peeked through
John Cameron with Suzanna,
He kissed the whiskers, left & right
Whiskers!

Now, now, now, fright subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter, our friends check in to pass the night
Now love gets hot, but fire preceded water
Poor whiskers set the room alight.
Whiskers!

Down on Bourbon street, you know it's right
You can see my friend, they run around all through the night
Most everywhere, until the closet's bare
Run for the razor, doin' up my hair

New Orleans queens, sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
When I step out, strut down with my sugar
She'd best not talk like Barry White!

One time love, take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night, and if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it, sometimes its hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite.


04. Nobody's Fault But Mine

Music & lyrics by Page/Plant
Nobody's fault but mine
Trying to save my soul tonight
It's nobody's fault but mine

Devil he told me to roll
How to roll the log tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

Brother he showed me the gong
Brother he showed me the ding dong ding dong
How to roll, the log tonight
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine

Got a monkey on my back.
Gonna change my ways tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

I will get down rollin' tonight
Nobody's fault


05. Candy Store Rock

Music & lyrics by Page/Plant
Well... Oh baby baby. Don't you want a man like me
Oh baby baby, I'm just as sweet as anybody could be
Oh baby baby, I want to look to your eyes, of blue
Oh baby baby, It's more than anybody else could do

Well... Oh baby baby. You know when I see you walkin down the street
Oh baby baby, Well you lookin good enough to eat
Oh baby baby, I dont believe I've tasted this before
Oh baby baby, I want it now
And every mouthfull more of you.

Talk about you, Yeah.

Oh baby baby, You know that I wanted it more
Oh baby baby, I'm about to kiss goodbye to this store
Oh baby baby, It ain't the wrapping that sells the goods
Oh baby baby, I got a sweet tooth when my mouth is full of you.

Ooh baby oh baby its alright, its alright
Ohh baby its alright...its alright

Well, oh baby, baby, oh you sting like a bee
Oh baby, baby, I like your honey and it sure likes me
Oh baby, baby, I got my spoon inside your jar
Oh baby, baby, don't give me too much, don't make me starve

Oh baby, baby, sugar sister on a silver plate
Oh baby, baby, I need a mouthful and I just can't wait
Oh baby, baby, see the shaking in my hand
Oh baby, baby, don't mean to fumble but it tastes so grand
Tastes so grand, tastes so grand, baby it's alright

Oh baby it's alright, oh it's alright
It's alright...


06. Hots On For Nowhere

Music & lyrics by Page/Plant
I was burned in the heat of the moment,
Though it couldn't have been the heat of the day
When I learned how my time had been wasted,
(And a) tear fell as I turned away

Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder,
Event I should happen to fall
Time and his bride growing older
I've got friends who will give me fuck all

(On the) corner of Bleeker and nowhere
In the land of not quite day
A shiver runs down my backbone
Face in the mirror turns grey

So (I) looked round to hitch up the reindeer
Searching hard trying to brighten the day
I turned around to look for the snowman
To my surprise he'd melted away.

As the moon and the stars call the order
Inside my tides dance the ebb and sway
The sun in my soul's sinking lower
While the hope in my hands turns to clay
I don't ask that my field's full of clover
I don't moan at opportunity's door
And if you ask my advice, take it slower
Then your story'd be your finest reward.

Lost on the path to attainment
Search in the eyes of the wise
When I bled from the heart of the matter
I started bleeding without a disguise

Now everything's fine under heaven
Now and then you've got to take time to pause
When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around
Or you'll land in a boat without oars
Hey babe, Hey babe, Hey babe,
I lost my way.

Hey babe, Hey babe,
I don't know where I'm gonna find it.

Hey babe, Hey babe,
Do you wanna know,
Do you really, really, wanna help me, yeah

Let me tell you now, babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right

Now my babe,
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right...


07. Tea For One

Music & lyrics by Page/Plant
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days
Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way
Sittin, lookin at the clock, time moves so slow
I've been watchin for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seems to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way.

To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say
'Oh baby this one's for we two', Which in the end is you anyway

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way.

There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men
But by my own choice I left you woman, And now I can't get back again

How come twenty-four hours, sometimes slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way
A minute seems like a lifetime
When I feel this way...I feel this way
