I can see we're thinkin' bout the same things
And I can see your expression when the phone rings
We both know there's something happening here
Well,there's no sense in dancing round the subject
A wound gets worse when it's treated with neglect
Don't turn around ,there's nothing here to fear
You can talk to me
Talk to me
You can talk to me
You can set your secrets free,baby
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Going back to California
So many good things around
Don't wanna leave California
The sun seems to never go down
Some people may treat you ugly
Some treat you beautiful too
That's the way life is all over
So look for the good things for you
California, there is a good place to be
California, that's where I'm feeling so free
California there is a good place to be
California, that is a good place for home
California, I'll be back that be for long
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

I left my home in Norfolk Virginia, California on my mind.
Straddled that Greyhound, it rode me past Raleigh, and on across Caroline.
Stopped in Charlotte and bypassed Rock Hill, and we never was a minute late.
We was ninety miles out of Atlanta by sundown, rollin' 'cross the Georgia state.
Had motor trouble it turned into a struggle, half way 'cross Alabam,
The 'hound broke down left us all stranded in downtown Birmingham.

Sitting in a park in Paris, France
Reading the news and it sure looks bad
They won't give peace a chance
That was just a dream some of us had
Still a lot of lands to see
But I wouldn't wanna stay here
It's too old and cold and settled in its ways here
Oh, but California
California, I'm coming home
I'm going to see the folks I dig
I'll even kiss a Sunset pig
California, I'm coming home
I met a redneck on a Grecian isle
Who did the goat dance very well
He gave me back my smile
But he kept my camera to sell
Oh, the rogue, the red red rogue
He cooked good omelets and stews
And I might have stayed on with him there
But my heart cried out for you, California
Oh, California, I'm coming home
Oh, make me feel good rock 'n roll band
I'm your biggest fan
California, I'm coming home
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Way down in the south of France all the ladies love to dance
Kick their heels up in the air snap their fingers for romance
While the gentlemen compare blonde or black or auburn hair
Check the motion and the style Oh, you know they take their while

When you dance
Do your senses tingle?
Then take a chance?
In a trance
While the lonely mingle
With circumstance?

Lonely is the night
When you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light
And your mind is not your own
Lonely is the night
When there's no one left to call
You feel the time is right
Say the writin's on the wall

Only the lonely
Know the way I feel tonight
Only the lonely
Know this feeling ain't right
And there goes my baby
There goes my heart
They're gone forever
So far apart
But only the lonely
Know why
I cry

Only the lonely
Only the lonely
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

And I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn,
I could arm a town the size of Abilene
Don't you push me baby, beause I'm moanin' low
And you know I'm only in it for the gold
All that I am asking for is ten gold dollars
And I could pay you back with one good hand
You can look around about the wide world over
And you'll never find another honest man.

I got some good friends
You know they're satisfied
Most of the time with a little
With a little peace, peace of mind
They don't need no alibis
No excuses, no telling lies
You know they know how to live and let live
How to give when they take
They never make a lotta heartbreak
Honest man
Doing the best he can
That's the way of an honest
Doing the best he can

Well I went to the depot, I'd never got there on time
Went down to the depot, I'd never got there on time
Well the train done left, she's a rollin' down the line
Mister jailer, go away now, don't tell me no lies
Mister jailer, away, don't tell me no lies
When my train go down, she's rollin' down the line, down the line

Well, I hear my train a comin'
Hear my
Hear my train a comin'
Ayy ayy ayy yeah-eah
Well, I
Wait around the train station
Waitin' for that train
Take me, take me
Take me away
From this
Lonesome town
Lonesome town
Too bad you don't love me no more, girl
Too bad your people put me down

Waiting at the station
Tears filling up my eyes
Sometimes the pain you hide
Burns like a fire inside
Lookin' out my window
Sometimes it's hard to see
The things you want in life
Come and go so easily

You never hear about it
It's not the thing you talk over with friends
You never see it coming until it begins
But something stepped in between us
It's taken all of our time alone
In her heart love remains, but is seldom shown
So why does she cry herself to sleep at night?
Why do I have to work so hard to make things right?
To fall in love came naturally
To make it last is so hard, you see
I'm caught in between the two sides of love
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Tell her about it
Tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason to accept
That you're for real
Tell her about it
Tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her
Let her know how much she means

The leaves are falling all around, time I was on my way
Thanks to you, I'm much obliged for such a pleasant stay
But now it's time for me to go, the autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it's headed my way
Ah, sometimes I grow so tired
But I know I've got one thing I got to do
Ramble on, and now's the time, the time is now
To sing my song, I'm going 'round the world, I gotta find my girl
On my way, I've been this way ten years to the day
Ramble on, gotta find the queen of all my dreams
Got no time to for spreading roots
The time has come to be gone
And though "our health" we drank a thousand times
It's time to ramble on
Ramble on, and now the time, the time is now
To sing my song, I'm going 'round the world, I gotta find my girl
On my way, I've been this way ten years to the day
I gotta ramble on, I gotta find the queen of all my dreams

I tell you no lie
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

These are the seasons of emotion
And like the wind, they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion
I see the torch
We all must hold
This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient
Upon us all, upon us all, a little rain must fall
Just a little rain, oh, yeah
Oh, ooh, yeah-yeah-yeah

I can't stand the rain, against my window
Bringing back, sweet memories
I can't stand the rain, against my window
Cause she ain't here with me
Hey window pane
Tell me, do you remember?
How sweet it used to be
When we were together
Everything was so grand
Now that we parted
There's just one sound
That I just can't stand
I can't stand the rain, against my window
Bringing back, sweet memories
I can't stand the rain, against my window
Cause she ain't here with me
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............
