Track Name: Going Away (Allegre)
I'm in the middle of my life, got a crisis and a wife
In a car that goes too fast I am living in the past
Running wild like a little child not a man.
Party like I'm back in school breaking every kind of rule
I took a walk the other day down the shore of Galway Bay
And what do I find, my peace of mind there.
So fly me to freedom, you can try me for treason
cuz I've been unfair to my man up there for so long
And it hurts to think so, but I've got to go where I belong
I belong long gone, I 'm going
Just like a shepherd of the sea
See what the ocean brings to me
But do I mean it when I say that I could leave it all today
To come and live here with my soul?
Fly me to freedom... I'm going
I found my gospel in the winds that blow
Up on the clifftops where the heather grows
I'd been waiting for the sun to rise
bUt I'd been looking eastward with western eyes
Fly me to freedom... I'm going
Just a thought before I leave, what of you and what of me?
Do I mean it when I say that I could leave it all today?
Such is the price of living your life.
Track Name: Picture of Pablo
Tell me again, oh the story of the man who
Had everything until she up and gone and ran to
The arms of another man
Well he stole my baby, I begged her to stay
I kept her waiting, so she left to betray
But she didn't know that I, I'd have been here before
And when I couldn't close my eyes,
I couldn't take any more
Hey hey, that's what I say now
Now all my friends, they say that seeing is believing
But that depends on what you want to be achieving
When all you had is gone
Well he stole my baby, I'd begged her to stay
I kept on waiting, for two years and a day
But she didn't know that I, I could see through the door
And when I couldn't close my eyes,
I couldn't take any more
Hey hey, that's what I say now
I know there is love now, I know it's true
But my baby's blue now...
I've never seen her quite like this
But that's what you get with a kiss
So hey hey, that's what I say now
And so it ends like any other fascination
He's on the mend, he gets another invitation
She's on her way back home
Well behold my baby! I'd begged her to stay
I kept on waiting here, for two years and a day
But I didn't know that I, I'd get a knock on the door
And when I couldn't close my eyes,
I had to fall to the floor
Hey hey, that's what I say now
Track Name: The Sailor
We sailed at dusk from Spain,
A kingdom's life to claim
With the world in the rear view,
I knew what I had to do
The sea looks down, I am going
To bring the crown wealth and fame
This world is round, I will show you,
To sail around in Thy name
A month or more at sea,
The grace of God with me
We found an isle of the Indies soon to be my legacy
The sea surrounds, I am sailing
To sing the sounds of Thy name
This world is round, I have shown you
This world I found is my fame
And I'm not deserving, no I'm not deserving,
No I'm not deserving of you.
I'm a sailor, not a saviour, not a martyr
I'm not a conqueror, I'm just a sailor,
And a sinner whose dream has run away from me
The sail goes down, I am ailing
The king, the crown slight my name
This world is round, now forever
This world I found is my shame
But I'm not deserving, no I'm not deserving,
No I'm not deserving, no I'm not deserving of you.
Track Name: Been Called a Fool
I woke up scared one weekday morning
Bloody sunrise, sailor's warning
Something sulfurous in the air
If you believe in faiths of passion
Afraid of falling out of fashion
Why the sixes everywhere I see?
Can it be, can I make it to the amnesty?
But he follows me like indecision
He's all I see on television
Just let me be, I know who did it
I know you're right, but I won't admit it
Cuz I've been called a fool before.
I met a man in robe and sandals
He struck a favor to light my candle
And offered me his kingdom's key
Said you announce my kitchen table
And I believe in Cain and Abel
But I believe in everything I see,
I can be, I can make it to your eternity
But he follows me like indecision
He's all I see on television
Just let me be, I know who did it
I know you're right, but I won't admit it
Cuz I've been called a fool before.
But I can't argue any more
Lord I need you like I never had before
He's haunting me, I'm falling under
He wants his share like it's any wonder
Come rescue me, I should have seen it
I need you now, I didn't mean it
You sang my name in so many verses
Your agent came to kiss the curses
I'm not the same, I'll not ignore it
My heart's aflame and better for it
And I'd been called a fool before.
Track Name: Going Away (Adagio)
I don't know just what to say
Words don't mean much
And I don't know just where I've been
Where is the world I am living in?
I'm going to clear my head out of the way
And what's left will stay
So meet me on the inside
We both know the time's arrived
We've got fortunes still to find
And I don't want to see it end
But we've got nothing left to spend
Waiting here life's passing by
So it hurts to say but I'm going away
I have my dream and it leads this way
And I know you, you've got your things to do
I want the world to remember you
I'm going to clear my head out of the way
And what's left will stay
I'm going to shine like gold shine like the day
And my heart will start to play
So meet me on the inside
We both know the time's arrived
We've got fortunes still to find
And kiss me for the last time
But just as long as I'm alive
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
She left alone when the summer came
I packed a bag and I did the same
But like the home that I'd left behind
Her memory flooded, overflowed my mind
I've been longing for your touch
I never thought it'd hurt this much
I just want you back again
So meet me on the way home
And I'll find out if I'm alone
I just want you in the end
Track Name: Peace Song
We've got to got to love one another
We've got to got to live for each other
Strange scene tonight, I'm neither here nor there
But I feel all right, I sang into your ear
I wish that I could ease your soul
Fill you up and make you whole
Give you more than you bargained for
Feel the love, let's not fight the love
Let's not spill the blood anymore
Gunshots I hear when I am half asleep
Lead me to fear we're in this way too deep
Car horns like cursing kids
A generation has hit the skids
Living more than they bargained for
Feel the love, let's not fight the love
Let's not spill the blood anymore
I've got the strangest feeling
I can see the paint is peeling
We've got nowhere left to run
I wish that love would overcome
Overtake me, overflow with love
Feel the love, let's not fight the love
Let's not spill the blood anymore
Track Name: J.W.
If I think of you tonight
It'll only make things worse
I'll feel that emptiness inside
That comes when your heart hurts
And when I think about your smile
It tears a hole in me
If I could only sleep a while
Then I might find some peace
And I guess in time I'll see
That not everything comes down to you and me
But when you laugh it all becomes so clear to me
There's nothing I can do but wait for you so hopelessly
What is wrong with me
That I do this to myself
You're happy without me
You're in love with someone else
What do you think of at night
Do you have a sacred dream
None of my thoughts are worthwhile
I don't even know what they mean
And I hope in time you'll see
That maybe something might become of you and me
There's so much I want to tell you, I want to say
There's nothing I can do but wait for you for another day
Standing in the rain, I look up at your window
And all I feel is this numbing pain
The ache from being alone
And I know in time you'll see
That maybe everything comes down to you and me
There's so much I want to tell you, I want to say
And I don't know if I can hold it for another day
And I know in time you'll see
How every word you say could mean so much to me
I'm standing out here below your window in the cold
With such a passion in my heart and you don't even know
