01. Circle Game

Yesterday a child came out to wander
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look
behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
in a circle game

Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like, when you're older must appease him
And promises of someday make his dreams

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cart wheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him, "Take your time,
It won't be long now till you drag your feet
to slow the circle down"

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur
coming true,
There'll be new dreams
maybe better dreams and plenty,
Before the last revolving year is through

02. Devoted to You

Darling you can count on me
Till the sun dries up the sea
Until then I'll always be devoted to you

I'll be yours through endless time
I'll adore your charm sublime
Guess by now you know that I'm devoted to you

I'll never hurt you, I'll never lie
I'll never be untrue
I'll never give you reason to cry
I'll be unhappy if you were blue

Through the years my love will grow
Like a river it will flow
It can't die because I'm so devoted to you

03. Nobody's Child

As I was slowly passing
an orphan's home one day
I stopped there for a moment
just lo watch the children play
Alone a boy was standing
and when I asked him why
He turned with eyes that could not see
and he began to cry

I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
Just like a flower, I'm growing wild
No mummy's kisses, no daddy's smile
Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child

People come for children
and take them for their own
But they all seem to pass me
and I'm left here all alone
I know they like to take me
but when they see I'm blind
They always take some other child
and I'm left behind

No mummy's arms to hold me
and soothe me when I cry
Sometimes I get so lonely
I just wish that I could die
I'll walk the streets of heaven
where all the blind can see
And just like all the other kids
there'll be a home for me

04. Day is Done

Tell me why you're crying my son
I know you're frightened like everyone
Is it the thunder in the distance you fear
Will it help if I stay very near, I am here

And if you take my hand my son
All will be well when the day is done
And if you take my hand my son
All will be well when the day is done
(Day is done) when the day is done (3x)
Day is done

Do you ask why I'm sighing my son
You shall inherit what mankind has done
In this world filled with sorrow and woe
If you ask me why this is so, I really don't know

Tell me why you're smiling my son
Is there a secret you can't tell everyone
do you know more than men that are wise
Can't you see what we all must disguise
Through your loving eyes

05. You've Got a Friend

When you're down and troubled
and you need some love and care,
And nothin', nothin' is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
and you know wherever I am
I'll come runnin' to see you again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, you've got a friend

If the sky above you grows dark
and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
and call my name out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

Now ain't it good to know that you've got
a friend when people can be so cold
They'll hurt you and desert you
and take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don't you let them

06. Will The Circle Be Broken

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

I was standing by the window
One dark and cloudy day
When I saw there hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

I have told the undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For this body you are hauling, Lord
I hate to see her go

So I follow close behind her
Try to hold her and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they lay her in the grave

07. Mother of Mine

Mother of mine, you gave to me
All of my life to do as I please
I owe everything I have to you
Mother, sweet mother of mine

When I was young you showed me the
right way things had to be done
Without your love, where would I be
Mother, sweet mother of mine

Mother, you gave me happiness
Much more than words can say
I thank the Lord that He may bless you
Every night and every day

Mother of mine, now I am grown
And I can walk straight all on my own
I'd like -to give you what you gave to me
Mother, sweet mother of mine

08. Killing Me Softly With His Song

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him, to listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
But then he looked right through me
As if I wasn't there
And there he was the stranger
Singing clear and strong

09. It Never Rains in Southern California

Got on board a westbound seven-forty-seven
Didn't think before deciding what to do
All that talk of opportunities
TV breaks and movies rang true, sure rang true

Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California,
But, girl, don't they warn ya
It pours, man it pours!

Out of work, I'm out of my head,
Out of self-respect, I'm out of bread,
I'm underloved, I'm underfed, I wanna go home ...
It never rains in California,
But, girl, don't they warn ya
It pours, man it pours!
Will you tell the folks back home
I nearly made it, had offers
But don't know which one to take
Please don't tell them how you found me
Don't tell them how you found me
Give me a break, give me a break

10. For All We Know

Love look at the two of us,
strangers in many ways
We've got a lifetime to share, so much to say
And as we go from day to day,
I feel you close to me, but time alone will tell
Let's take a lifetime to say, I knew you well
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow for all we know

11. Rose Garden

I beg your pardon
I never promise you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There's got to be a little rain sometime
When you take you got to give
So live and let live or let go
I beg your pardon
I never promise you a rose garden
I could promise you things like big diamond rings
But you don't find roses
growing on stalks of clover
So you better think it over
When it's sweet talking you could make it come true
I would give you the world right now on a silver
platter, but what would it matter

So smile for a while and let's be jolly
Love shouldn't be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can
I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
But if that's what it takes to hold you
I'll just as soon let you go
But there's one thing I want you to know
You better look before you leap
Still waters run deep
And you don't always have someone there to pull you out
And you know what I'm talking about
So smile for a while and let's be jolly
Love shouldn't be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

12. Turn Around

Where are you going, my little, little one
Petals and petticoats, where did they go
Turn around and you're two
Turn around and you're four
Turn around and you're a young girl
Going out of the dorm. Turn around (x3)

Where are you going my little, little one
Blooms of red roses, where did they go
Turn around and you're young
Turn around and you're old
It's a sure way to travel also I had been told

Where are you going, my little, little one
Where are you going, my baby my own
Turn around and you're young
Turn around and you're grown
Turn around and you're a young wife
with babes of your own
Turn around (x3) and you're a young wife
with babes of your own

13. Without You

No I can't forget this evening
Or your face just as you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way
The story goes, you always smile
But in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes it shows, no I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
How I had you there, then I let you go
Now it's only fair, that I should let you know
What you should know

I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore

14. Follow Me

It's by far the hardest thing I've ever done
to be in love with you so long
Follow me where I go, what I do, who I know
Make it part of you to be a part of me
Follow me up and down, all the way around
Take my hand and say you'll follow me

It's long been on my mind
You know it's been a long long time
I try to find a way that I can make you
understand the way f feel about you
Just how much \ need you
To be there wh’lre I can talk to you
When there's no one else around
You see I like to share my life with you
Show you things I've seen
Places where I'm going to, places where I've been
To have you there beside me, never be alone
All the time in joy with one, we will be at home

Take my hand and I will follow you

15. Sweet Dreams

In my waking dreams I often see
A dashing young boy leaning by a tree
Playing sad songs I like to hear
He sings for no one but me

He croons it with all his tender might
Doleful guitar and a faltering voice
Cherished, subdued am I
How I wish it isn't a dream

Ah .. ah .. will someone bring my dream to reality,
Ah .. ah ..
Will this not be just another whimsical moment
Blossoms in the night, fizzles out at dawn

Last night I dreamt my dream again
My black haired sweetheart by the tree
Wooing, songs a-cooing
My heart pounded like a drum

Now in my sweet dreams I live my life
No more sorrow and no more sigh
In my sleeping moments my heart booms with ecstasy

Ah .. ah .. will someone bring my dream to reality,
Ah... ah...
Will this not be just another whimsical moment
A dream's but a dream, it ends by the morn
Blossoms in the night, fizzles out at dawn

16. If You Love Me (Let Me Know)

You came when I was happy in your sunshine
I grew to love you more each passing day
Before too long I built my world around you
And I prayed you'd love enough of me to stay

If you love me let me know
If you don't then let me go
I can't take another minute of a day
without you in it
If you love me let it be
If you don't then let me free
Take the chains away that keep me loving you

The arms that open wide to hold me closer
The hands that run their fingers through my hair
The smile that says hello, its good to see you
Anytime I turn around to find you there
It's this and so much more that makes me love you
What else can I do to make you see
You know you have whatever's mine to give you
But a love affair for one can never be

17. Let Me Be There

Wherever you go, wherever you may wander
In your life surely you'll know
I'll always want to be there

Holding your hand and standing by
to catch you when you fall
Seeing you through in everything you do

Let me be there in your morning
Let me be there in your night
Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
Let me take you to that wonderland
that only two can share
All I ask you is let me be there

Watching you grow and going through the
changes in your life.
That's how I know I always want to be there
Whenever you feel you need a friend to lean on
Here I am, whenever you call
You know I'll be there

18. Top Of The World

Such a feelin's cornin' over me
There is wonder in most ev'rything I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream
Ev'rything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me,
And the reason is clear, it's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

I'm on the top of the world
lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found,
ever since you're been around
Your love put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees
and the touch of the breeze
There is a pleasin' sense of happiness for me
There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be
just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here
