Got a call from an old friend

We used to be real close

Said he couldn’t go on the American way

Closed the shop, sold a house, bought a

ticket to the west coast

Now he gives them a stand-up routine in LA

My life, Billy Joel

"Sunday Will Never Be The Same" - Spanky & Our Gang

 

"I remember Sunday morning
I would meet him at the park
We'd walk together hand in hand
Till it was almost dark
Now I wake up Sunday morning
Walk across the way to find
Nobody waiting for me
Sunday's just another day"

Love hurts, love scars

Love wounds and marks

Any heart

Not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain

Love hurts, Nazareth

But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win

Of the evil that lurks within (Can you dig it)

Smiling faces sometimes

They like to get you in a compromising position

Well, they like to get you there and smile in your face 

Yeah, they think they’re so cute when they got you in that condition 

But I think it’s a total disgrace 

And I say

I looked out this morning and the sun was gone 

Turned on some music to start my day

I lost myself in a familiar song

I closed my eyes and I slipped away

Well everybody’s talking and no one says a word

Everybody’s making love and no one really cares

Woke up this morning with a wine glass in my hand
Whose wine? What wine?
Where the hell did I dine?
Must have been a dream
I don't believe where I've been
Come on, let's do it again

I've gotta find my baby yet
I need you to soothe my head
Turn my blue heart to red

Seen the passers-by all stare

Like you have no place to go

But there’s so much they don’t know

Tell me what they’ve done

Speak the words I wanna hear

To make my demons run

With tears in your eyes
Trying to tell me that you have found you another
And you just don't love me no more"

Well, I’d rather see you dead, little girl

Than to be with another man

And quickly he’s subdued 

Through constant pain disgrace

Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

With the rain in Shambala

Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame

With the rain in Shambala
