Papa He Said
 
Autor tekstu:  Mike Rutherford
 
Oh Papa he said you must turn the lights down low
Oh Papa he said that way no one will ever know
And Papa he said what kind of trouble are you in?

Well Papa he said you must go down on your knees
Oh Papa he said you must do what it takes to please
Papa he said if you've done everything I've told you to
and I've never had the feeling in the past
and I never felt I needed to impress
I should know

Well Papa he said you must walk up the hill
Oh Papa he said if you don't someone else will
Papa he said if you've done everything I've told you to
and I've never had the feeling in the past
and I've never felt I needed to impress

Well Papa he said you must turn the lights down low
Oh Papa he said that way no one will ever know
Papa he said if you follow him wherever he may go, don't say no

Oh Papa he said you must walk up the hill
Papa he said if you don't no one else will
No one else will
Turn the lights down low
No one will know
Turn the lights down low
The lights down low...
 
Banjo Man
 
Autor tekstu:  Ray Wilson
 
Gimme a song I know, something I can relate to
People never criticise the way I play
Show me the way to go, I need to make a breakthrough
I don't think that I can wait another day

It's putting years on me, I'm a young man going grey
I don't believe that I can wait another day

This simple melody is all I have
I make my living that way
I make good friends that way
Ooh, I really can make no sense of it, as hard as I try
Is it something I do wrong please won't you tell me why
People all seem to like it and no one knows about it more than I

I met a man today who walked in my direction
Stopped took off his hat and lit a cigarette
He listened carefully to what I had been playing
He threw a coin into my hat and walked away

Always play just what they want me to
Everybody wants the same song
If only I could do it in my own way
I feel such emotion, emotion, ooh, emotion, emotion, ooh

Say gimme a song I know, something I can relate to
And no one wants to criticise the way I play
I should just say no and play them what I want to
Cos I don't think that I can wait another day

It's putting years on me, I'm a young man going grey
I don't believe that I can wait another day

This simple melody is all I have
I make my living that way
I make good friends that way
They feel my emotion, emotion, ooh, ooh
Emotion, emotion, ooh
 
Anything Now
 
And whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
And try to battle it out
Someday you may just come to discover
It was all for the best
The change has come, maybe a second chance
Anything now could be there for you
But whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
Nothing will ever be quite the same again

I know my limitations
I don't want to change a thing
I know that I can live with them
Why should I care?

But then sometimes right out of the blue
News on the radio
Words on the telephone
Suddenly change everything
Nothing's quite what it seems

And whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
And try to battle it out
Someday you may just come to discover
It was all for the best
The change has come, maybe a second chance
Anything now could be there for you
But whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
Nothing will ever be quite the same again

I got my lines, I got a part to play
I don't want to be surprised
I like to plan from day to day
Why should I care?

But then sometimes right out of the blue
News on the radio
Words on the telephone
Suddenly change everything
Nothing's quite what it seems

And whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
And try to battle it out
Someday you may just come to discover
It was all for the best
The change has come, maybe a second chance
Anything now could be there for you
But whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
Nothing will ever be quite the same again

And whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
And try to battle it out
Someday you may just come to discover
It was all for the best
The change has come, maybe a second chance
Anything now could be there for you
But whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
Nothing will ever be quite the same again

Whether you want it
Or whether you hate it
Nothing will ever be quite the same again

Anything now...
 
Sign Your Life Away
 
Well I heard you sold them America
You said it was built to last
Price is right, the time is now
You said it was going fast

Well I've got my beliefs
And I don't agree with a single word you say
A convincing smile, a twist of truth
You seem to get your way

And they believed you
With every word you said
It always sounded so convincing
As you signed their life away
So tell me what you're thinking
When you lie in your bed
The suffering you've caused
Surely it must go around your head

Well they call you Mr Cover
A predator at heart
A man who's reputation
Was dangerous from the start
You lie and you steal, cheat and you rob
Sold anything you could
You never had a second thought for people that you hurt

And they believed you
With every word you said
It always sounded so convincing
As you signed their life away
So tell me what you're thinking
When you lie in your bed
The suffering you've caused
Surely it must go around your head

It's been so many years
Well you've hurt so many people
As you've singed their lives away
Do you ever spare a moment's thought about the price they have to pay?

And they believed you
With every word you said
It always sounded so convincing
As you signed their life away
So tell me what you're thinking
When you lie in your bed
The suffering you've caused
Surely it must go around your head...
 
Run Out Of Time
 
Ooh hear me, ooh hear me
Time to tell the truth, no more lying
By the light of a candle
Through the base of a wineglass
You could almost take me for the real thing

But I know in my heart of hearts
I could never live up to what you want me to be
In the heat of temptation in a moment of crisis
I could never, never, never be what you need

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck
I've almost run out of time

Ooh forgive me, ooh forgive me
I don't mean to share all my fears
Like the man in the middle
Says he just passes on decision
I could always find someone to put the blame on

But I know in my heart of hearts
There is nobody else it was me from the start
As God is my witness, no matter the score
I could never, I could never not do it again

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck, I've run out of time
I've almost run out of tears

I've run of luck, I've run out of time
I've almost run out of tears

Ooh believe me, ooh believe me
I don't mean to hurt you, no more crying
A wolf needs no reason to hunt and kill it's prey
He could no more change than give up breathing

So I know in my heart of hearts
I will always be the way that I am
In the joy of a moment, in the blackest despair
I will never, never, never let anyone in

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck, I've run out of time....
 
Nowhere Else To Turn
 
Autor tekstu:  Ray Wilson
 
Would it be asking too much of you
To let me stay tonight
Until I find my way back home again
Life's been so simple lately
I don't want to go away
There is precious little left for me to say

I've go nowhere else to turn
Will you help me tonight
There's no-one to stand in our way
I just want to feel needed
Won't you give me a chance
I know that you want me to stay

And there's no need to be disguising all your feelings
Cos I can't leave you alone
I've got nowhere else to turn

Would it be taking a liberty
In loving you tonight
I just want to hold you close again
I get so lonely sometimes
Then I think of you
There is precious little else that I can do

I've go nowhere else to turn
Will you help me tonight
There's no-one to stand in our way
I just want to feel needed
Won't you give me a chance
I know that you want me to stay

I've go nowhere else to turn
Will you help me tonight
There's no-one to stand in our way
I just want to feel needed
Won't you give me a chance
I know that you want me to stay

And there's no need to be disguising all your feelings
Cos I can't leave you alone
I've got nowhere else to turn

Would it be taking a liberty
In loving you tonight
I just want to hold you close again
I get so lonely sometimes
Then I think of you
There is precious little else that I can do

I've go nowhere else to turn
Will you help me tonight
There's no-one to stand in our way
I just want to feel needed
Won't you give me a chance
I know that you want me to stay

I've go nowhere else to turn
Will you help me tonight
There's no-one to stand in our way
I just want to feel needed
Won't you give me a chance
I know that you want me to stay

And there's no need to be disguising all your feelings
Cos I can't leave you alone
I've got nowhere else to turn
Will you help me tonight
There's no-one to stand in our way
I just want to feel needed
Won't you give me a chance
I know that you want me to stay....
