Here In The Real World

Here in the real world
Cowboys dont cry, and heroes dont die
Good always wins, again and again
Love is a sweet dream that always comes true
Oh, if life were like the movies, Id never be blue
Chorus
But here in the real world
Its not that easy at all
cause when hearts get broken
Its real tears that fall
And darlin its sad but true
But the one thing Ive learned from you
Is how the boy dont always get the girl
Here in the real world
I gave you my love, but that wasnt enough
To hold your heart when times got rough
And tonight on that silver screen
Itll end like it should
Two lovers will make it through
Like I hoped we would
Repeat
Repeat chorus
No, the boy dont always get the girl
Here in the real world

In The Real World

(jennings/kerr)
In dreams we do so many things
We set aside the rules we know
And fly the world so high
In great and shining rings
If only we could always live in dreams
If only we could make of life
What, in dreams, it seems
But in the real world
We must say our goodbyes
No matter if the love will live
It will never die
In the real world
There are things that we cant change
And endings come to us
In ways that we cant rearrange
I love you, and you love me
But sometimes we must let it be
In the real world
In the real world
When we were dreaming heart to heart
I wish that we had stayed right there
For when the dreamers do awake
The dreams do disappear
In the real world
There are things that we cant change
And endings come to us
In ways that we cant rearrange
I love you, and you love me
But sometimes we must let it be
In the real world
In the real world

The Real World

Excuse me sir,
Could you tell me how to get to the real world?
Oh o oh wow!
Uh huh, the world is a funny place
And its calling you names
Hey hey, the world is a funny place, heeeey
Oh o wow!
Oh wow in the real world walking around
I think Im falling in love again
Hey guardian angel - more light for falling in love
Oh wow!, hey hey
Ho ho the world is a funny place
And its calling you names
Hey hey, the world is a funny place heeeey
Oh wow!
Oh wow in the real world look at the sky
Hear the calling above again
Look mom an angel - all right for falling in love
Deep down in the sea of her
Life is surrounding
You can feel like a dove and then
Like a million rainbows
Here they come again, here they come again
They call it falling in love
They call it falling
Oh wow!
In the real world lookin around
I think Im falling in love with them
In the garden of angels
Ho ho were falling in love (oh wow!)
Hey hey its a real world
Look at the ground
Can you see your reflection there
Everything is single
Here we come again
Here we come again
Hey guardian angel
Open your eyes
And all the love will make you fly -- high
Real world, real world
Were in the real world
Falling in love again
Were in the real world (oh wow!)
Oh wow in the real world walking around
I think Im falling in love again
Hey guardian angel, more light for falling in love
Hey hey its a real world walking around
I think Im falling in love again
Hey guardian angel,
Here we come again, here we come again
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
They call it falling in love (hey)
Oh wow! hey!
Oh wow!

Haters Of The Real World

Haters of the real world
haters of the free world
They want to control
they want to dictate

They want it all
free will and all
They are makers of pain
they are makers of their own shame

But don't think it's
just the world leaders
it could be your own neighbours

Haters of the real world
haters of the free world
it could be anyone

Welcome To The Real World

I was a rich man, I was a thief
I was a sailor, shipwrecked on a reef
I was a coward, I was afraid
I was couragious, man I was brave
Until the oceans dry
Until the day you die
Until the stars fall out the sky
Welcome to the real world baby
Welcome to the way things are
Welcome to the real world darling
Step on for shangri-la
Welcome to the real world baby
Paradise guarantee
Welcome to the real world
Come and see what weve bequeathed
I was an angel, idolised
I was a devil in a disguise
I was a stalion, I was a mule
I was misguided, but nobodys fool
(chorus)
The day that I was born, daddy placed me on his knee
Said son youve got to be, a better man than me
Youre inherriting the world, make your mark on history
Welcome to the real world, be what youve got to be
Welcome to the real world

The Real World

(s. hoffs/v. peterson)
Susanna
Got to tell you
It seems so very hard to say
And you know that the words are there, my love
When I first saw you
Didnt notice it that day
Now youre the one Im thinking of
Oh, you never bring me down
Inside its such a change, oh yeah (oh yeah)
If I was insecure
That was yesterday and now Im sure
Oh so sure (oh so sure)
When I was a little girl
I wanted everything ideal
Yeah, and a love I could depend on
This is the real world
And I believe our love is real
And its the only thing Im counting on
Oh, you never bring me down
Inside its such a change, oh yeah (oh yeah)
If I was insecure
That was yesterday and now Im sure
Oh so sure
Oh, you never bring me down
Inside its such a change, oh yeah (oh yeah)
If I was insecure
That was yesterday and now Im sure
Oh so sure
This is the real world
I really want to be a girl
This is the real world (real world)
I really want to be a girl
This is the real world (real world)
I really want to be a girl

The Real World

Lead vocal - john miles
One more compromise I wont be making
One more easy way out I wont be taking
So many chances dont come twice
So many eyes are made of ice
One more cheating hand I wont be shaking
One more substitute I wont be trying
One more piece of the rock that Im not buying
So many times we stand and fight
So many reasons cant be right
One more simple truth Im not denying
Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many fools who dont think twice
Too many ways to pay the price
Dont wanna live my life in the real world
One more sacrifice I wont be making
One more golden rule I wont be breaking
No one to let me state my case
No one to tell me to my face
One more sweet suprise I wont be faking
Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you cant turn
Dont wanna live my life in the real world
Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many games that I cant play
Too many windmills in my way
Dont wanna live in the real world

Real World

I wonder what its like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what its like to know that I made the rain
Id store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come and see them when im...done, when Im done
I wonder what its like to be a super hero
I wonder where Id go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow sun
Boy I bet my friends will be...stunned, theyre stunned
(chorus)
Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me
I wonder what its like to be the head honcho
I wonder what Id do if they all did just what I said
Id shout out an order, I think were out of this man get me some
Boy dont make me wanna change my...tone, my tone
(chorus)
Please dont change, please dont break
The only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please dont change, at all from me
To you, and you to me
(chorus)

Real World

Days, times we will remember
When innocence was lost
We let our hearts move on
So many dreams we thought would last forever
Today it doesnt matter
All those dreams are gone, they are gone, oooh
Tell me how it feels again
Oh, show me that its real and then
Ill walk away, from my own reflection
The stranger that I knew
The stranger that was you
And now I face a cold return to sender
A truce but no surrender
A voice that wont ring true, where are you? oooh
I reach over the edge
And throw a penny in the wishing well
Its so deep that I can tell
That in the real world
Theres fewer stars in the sky
And in the real world
You can get hear children cry at night
This is the real world
There is no time, for a life of solitude
Only hunger and survival
In the world we were born into, were alone, oooh
And it brings me to my knees
Our father lay me down to sleep
Father please
Pray the lord my soul to keep
Keep us in the real world
Keep us in the real world
Dont have to tell you
In the real world
Theyll damn you if you try
In the real world
Let it begin with you and i
This is the real world
Theres fewer stars in the sky
This is the real world
You can get hear children cry at night
Now in the real world
Theyll damn you if you try
And in the real world
Let it begin with you and i
Living in the real world
Yeah, living in the real world

Real World

I remember me sittin on my daddys
Knee
Dreamin about what life had in store for me
When I look back now it really makes me mad
The years I took for granted were the best I had
School was alright
Gave me time to fantasize
But one day I woke up
And I realized
Im livin in the real world
Everythings written in black and white
Livin in the real world
Where you dont get nothin unless you fight
I wanna relax but I dont know how
The pressures on me are much stronger now
I remember the days I didnt have a care
Aside from being afraid somebodyd cut my hair
I wanna make it
Before my chances are gone
They say be patient
But it takes too long
Im livin in the real world
Everythings written in black and white
Livin in the real world
Where you dont get nothin unless you fight
Real world
Where there aint no holiday in sight
Livin in the real world
Where you dont get nothin unless you fight
Someday soon Ill settle down for
Good
There was a time I thought I never would
Im gonna live with a lady on a quiet beach
Im gonna have three kids, maybe one of each
Ive got to make it
Before my chances are gone
They say be patient
But it takes too long
Im livin in the real world
Everythings written in black and white
Livin in the real world
Where you dont get nothin unless you fight
Real world
Where there aint no holiday in sight
Livin in the real world
Where you dont get nothin unless you fight

Real World

Mr. trouble come walkin this way
Year gone by feels like one long day but Im alive
And Im feelin all right
Well I run that hard road outta heartbreak city
Built a roadside carnival out of hurt and self-pity, it was all wrong
Well now Im moving on
Aint no church bells ringing
Aint no flags unfurled
Its just me and you and the love were bringing
Into the real world
Into the real world
I built a shrine in my heart, isnt pretty to see
Made out of fools gold memory and tears cried
Now Im headin over the rise
Im searchin for one clear moment of love and truth
I still got a little faith but what I need is some proof tonight
Im lookin for it in your eyes
Aint no church bells ringing
Aint no flags unfurled
Just me and you and the faith were bringing into the real world
Into the real world
Well tonight I just wanna shout
I feel my soul waist deep and sinking into this black river of doubt
I just wanna rise and walk along the riverside
And when the morning comes baby I dont wanna hide
Ill stand right at your side with my arms open wide
(killer guitar solo here)
Well tonight I just wanna shout
I feel my soul waist deep and sinking into this black river of doubt
I just wanna rise and walk along the riverside
til the morning comes
Ill stand right by your side
I wanna find some answers I wanna ask for some help
Im tired of running scared baby lets get our bags packed
Well take it here to hell and heaven and back
And if love is hopeless, hopeless at best
Come on put on your party dress, its ours tonight
And were goin with the tumblin dice
Aint no church bells ringing
Aint no flags unfurled
Its just me and you and the hope were bringing into the real world
Well into the real world
Oh into the real world

The Dream World

The world is peaceful and promising
The world is full of opportunities and beautiful
The people are helpful and always smiling
The people are respectful and dutiful
There is no killing
No sexism or racism
No lying

And then I woke up and returned to the real world...

Credit In The Straight World

Go for credit in the straight world
Look a dealer in the eye
Go for credit in the real world
Wont you try?
I got some credit in the straight world
I lost a leg, I lost an eye
Go for credit in the real world
You wont die
Instant credit in the straight world
Leaving money when you die
Lots of credit in the real world
Gets you high

The Real

I know the sun's around
To wake the dead
You've got if anything
A bigger head
Most likely to perform
Was who I knew
But now it's you that I have to know
Silly who ya know
Has got away
Sweet little who ya know
Lives in L.A.
Most likely to conceive
Was who I knew
But now it's you that I have to know
Only the real world
Is so unreal
Only the real is real

Pocket the business card
Be on your way
Pocket the smiling face
And save the day

Most likely to perform
Was who I knew
But now it's you that I have to know
Only the real world is so unreal
Only the real is real

In The Virtual World

IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD

In the virtual world
I somehow am real-
I add to myself all the time
Without problem.

In the real world
I am less successful.
Less attention is paid
And I walk the streets of my own city
Unrecognized.

Praise is nice
And virtual praise also something I suppose
But a real embrace is something different.

One day soon too perhaps, you say,
Virtual embraces will be more than real ones
But it hasn't happened yet.

As it is now I am more real in the virtual world
Than in the real one.

No wonder I spend so much of my time here
Writing to strangers who have never smiled at me
And who I too am not really in touch with.

Credit In The Straight World

And I will awake
Your highness- Im so high I cannot walk
And I will awake
You cripple, you take away my time, my peace, my empathy
No babies sleep on atrophy
Your unborn love and fetals dree
My bitter [ ] legless caress
Go for credit in the straight world
Look a dealer in the eye
Go for credit in the real world, wont you try?
I got some credit in the straight world
I lost a leg, I lost an eye
Go for credit in the real world you will die
Its the credit in the straight world
Leave your money when you die
Lots of credit in the straight world gets you high
I got some credit in the straight world
I lost a leg, I lost an eye
Go for credit in the real world, you will die

My Childhood World Was Once The Only World

My childhood world was once the only world
Years later when it exists only in my memory
It has become one of many worlds the Jewish people have known
In their long journey-

Its idiom and characters its look and its feel
Its small dreams and distinct languages
Are gone-

All I thought once the whole of the real world
Is only a small part of what has gone on far longer than it
And all these worlds together too
Are not the whole of the universe –

Yet my memory of this world makes it larger and larger
And for me still it is in the center of space and time –

One day soon when I am gone
No one will know it as I have-
Some traces of it will remain in the minds of other witnesses
And when they are gone
This world too will have only a remnant of it
Remaining as words.

I Could Feel The Whole World Turn Around Underneath Me

When I first saw you this strange kind of feeling set my head a-reeling
Like I hit the ceiling.
The same thing happened to me then, baby.
Something kind of crazy and everything went hazy.
Lightning and thunder shook the ground.
And I could feet the whole world turn round underneath me.
I could feet the whole world turn round.
My, have you never been set on fire?
Burning with desire growing higher and higher.
Like on a funny fair big wheel stopping when you are to topping,
The you feel it dropping
Rising and heaven falling down.
And I could feet the whole world turn round underneath me.
I could feet the whole world turn round.
I took my breath as though Ive been running.
Quite completely stunning, holy, overcoming.
And in a funny way it seemed frightening.
Tension and a hardening
Thunder and the lightning
And Ive grown the singer who wrote that song.
And I could feet the whole world turn round underneath me.
I could feet the whole world turn round when youre near me.
I could feet the whole world turn round.
I could feet the whole world turn round underneath me.
I could feet the whole world turn round when youre near me.
I could feet the whole world turn round.

All These Poems Taken Together / Don't Make One Good Day's Pay

All these poems taken together
Do not make one good day's pay-
A lifetime of struggle
for the wages of the soul onl-
,
And the real world
that impossible thing
with its never- ending demands
mocking me -

The small failure who could never make much money,
But could always write at night
more words which said
Beauty and Love and Hope
Somehow will prevail
even through the Poverty which demeans.
