Fatherless... where u at?

Where were you father when I fell?
I lookd to you for so much support
I wished we could get close
But I always knew you were far away
Where were you father when I fell?
I've scraped my arm pretty bad
You never thought to look after me
Tears flow down my face
From the agonizing pain
Of not having you around
My heart is wounded
I wish we could be a team
Where were you father when I fell?

Where Were You When That Happened?

It has already been tried.
Whatever it is you think you do.
Or believed done.
To yourself or someone,
Else
Involved involuntarily.

It has already been tried.
To cast vacant innocent eyes,
To hide behind another masquerade.

'We can't both be in the same Milky Way?
Why would I not be aware of the obvious?
You must be filming this for your archive collection.
Labelled, 'Repeated Scenes In Unconvincing Color''

It has already been tried.
Whatever it is you think you do.
Or believed done.
To yourself or someone,
Else
Involved involuntarily.

'Why do you think I have this smile on my face?
Because I am happy to see you?

I am more amused than happy.
But then again,
I'm happily amused.
So much has changed!
And I wonder...
Where were you when that happened? '

Where Were You When I Needed You

(p. f. sloan/s. barri)
Don't botter cryin'
Don't botter crawlin'
It's all over now
No use in stallin'
The love i once felt
I don't feel anymore for you
This time i'll even
Open the door for you
You walked out
When i was down
Well now i'm well off
And look who's comin' around
Where were you when i needed you
Where were you when i wanted you
Where were you when i needed you
Where
You're looking good
It's hard to fight it
There's no use explainin'
I've already decided
That livin' without ya
Is worse than without ya
I won't spend a lifetime
A-worryin' about ya
Things got rough
And you dissappeared
Now i'm back on my feet
And look who's standing there
Where were you when i needed you
Where were you when i wanted you
Where were you when i needed you
Where
You were so young
And you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's
Innocent child
The first day i saw you
You really got me
I thought i could change ya
What good did it do me
Things got rough
And i couldn't wait
Now you're trippin' back
But babe, it's too late
Where were you when i needed you
Where were you when i wanted you
Where were you when i needed you
Where

Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)

Where were you when the world stopped turnin' on that September day
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or workin' on some stage in L.A.
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Risin' against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry
Did you weep for the children, they lost their dear loved ones
Or pray for the ones who don't know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below
Did you burst out with pride for the red, white and blue
For the heroes who died just doin' what they do
Did you look up to Heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters
I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love
Where were you when the world stopped turnin' on that September day
Teachin' a class full of innocent children
Or drivin' down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes and hoped it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Speak to some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin'
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
Or stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love
I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love
I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love
The greatest is love
And the greatest is love
Where were you when the world stopped turnin' on that September day

Where Were You?

WHERE WERE YOU?

Where were you,
When your life said
“Disappointment all I endeavor end”?

Where were you,
What do you believe
When you saw your dreams
Were not to be realized
Even your most holy and pure
Most God-loving dreams?

Where were you
When the end came
And ‘no’ was the final word
You heard?

Where were you?
Were you where God
Needed you to be?

Or were you only in your own selfish dream still
Not understanding anything?

Where were you, where was I?

Where were you, where was I
when God created, set the globe
of this world in its place in the universe,
founding it to spin, to have night and day
setting seasons, years to exist?

Where were anybody when the sun the first time
devoured the darkness, when earth and ocean,
the blue sea parted to let dry land appear

and who can declare the knowledge
of the starting of life, who has the capacity
to bring it forth?

Where were we when angelic beings
saw all of these happenings,
sang together in joy,
before mere man
started living, as a rational being?

[References: Job 38: 4-7.]

Where Were You Last Night

Where were you last night?
You were so uptight
What did you do, who did you see?
Were you with someone
Who reminded you of me?
Where were you last night?
Where were you last week?
Were you up a creek?
Did you stay up pacing the floor?
Got me worried
You ignore me more and more
Where were you last night?
You werent around me
When they found me
Where were you last night?
Youd better stop your messin around
Your name is going round from town to town
Its making me sad
Making me feel bad
Where were you last night?
Where were you last year?
Youre sure as [...]
You werent waiting where you said
You sent someone in your place instead
Where were you last night?
Its getting to me
Making me gloomy
Where were you last night?

Where Were You

(Jo Dee Messina/John Bettis/Wayne Kirkpatrick)
It's good to see you come 'round, it's been a while
Sure is nice to see your smile
Yah I'm doing better now, thought about
Callin' you a hundred times
Oh I had left a couple messages
And I never heard a word
Not one
Chorus:
Where were you when I needed somebody
Where were you when the walls started caving in
I was waiting for someone to save me
When I was coming unglued
Where were you
A lot of things got pretty bad pretty fast
I never thought you'd turn your back
You left me out there all alone hanging on
I just have to deal with that
Oh I can count on you when everything is easy
But when the going gets tough
I guess not
Repeat chorus
I had to find my own way
Now that I've made it through
Repeat chorus (out)

Blance, where were you...?

Blance, where were you when I was still alive?
come just to think of it, life was a game;
Recall we were racing on Storrow Drive.

Black vanishing plummet, Oettinger strive
race on marginal speed is not to blame
Blance where were you when I was still alive?

Wolf-colder bite November frost to skive;
Vain was this agon for, distance to tame;
Recall we were racing on Storrow Drive.

Breathless our life was at twenty-five,
live dangerous, on road, afore to aim,
Blance where were you when I was still alive?

Selected Nymph, one promise to derive;
She was a softer misty form, my dame;
Recall we were racing on Storrow Drive.

Apotheotic nacreous form, swan dive;
November of anamnesis, became,
Blance where were you when I was still alive?
Recall we were racing on Storrow Drive.

Where were you?

Where were you when I laid earth's foundation
and stars sang with angels at creation
when upon the threshold of time and space
I flung the mighty galaxies into place?

Where were you at the dawning of that day
when firstborn light sped forth upon its way
and into the darkness its' rays disperse
lighting the vastness of the universe?

********

Woe is me Lord for I am mortal man
and I was not there when the world began.
I saw not those heavenly bodies made
or the acts of creation You displayed.

But now, my soul within me has been stirred
and I was enthralled as I read Your word.
With eyes of faith I saw what You had done
The power of God. The Almighty One.

My spirit sings as I address my praise
To mighty God, the Ancient of Days.
Who was, Who is, and Who will always be
For the Beginning and the End is He.

Where Were You?

Where were you? This long period,
From time immemorial, where were you?
Hidden behind the mountainous ego,
Suddenly fallen on the Iris, roamed with selfish billows,
Reached the heart of the mass, where were you?
Boiled in the core of the womb, have you let yourself free?
Cooled down to be the stubborn ice, then to be thawed,
Where were you? Caught hold of the legs of the butterflies,
Visited all the beautiful blooms and then tired all the tryst,
Entered the threshold of innocence, where were you?
Believed all faithful doctrines and forgot the fragrant humanity,
Had the shower to remove all the dirt stuck impermanent?
Where were you? When the rational side is apparent,
These crying clouds may not say multiple stories,
The flashing lightning may disappear in wearies,
Autumn leaves may get rejuvenated and look fresh,
The spring foliage may be impressively alert.

Where Were You

Where were you
When I wanted you to love me through the night?
Where were you
When I wanted you to love and hold me tight?
Where were you, little darlin
When you said to pick you up after school?
I know where, little lady,
cause my mama didnt raise no fool.
Yeah.
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
I know where, baby,
You been runnin round loose on the side.
I know where, little lady,
You been runnin round with something to hide.
I dont mind, darlin, if youre feelin fancy and free.
I dont mind, little baby,
Cause your sisters lookin real good to me.
Hey,
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
I didnt know what the hell was goin on,
Someday youre gonna break.
So dont try to get yourself straight,
Youre just a little too late.
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?

Where Were You?

where were you when
i needed you?

i spilled some lima beans in my bed
and my wife shall gather them all to me
and i ask her
how many are these beans specifically

it will take her time

i spilled ketsup in my white shirt
and my wife will have to clean it for me
she will wash it
with soap and water and dry it in the sun

it will take her time

so, let me tell you i am thinking of you
while she picks the lima beans and counts them
in specific numbers

so let me tell you that i am thinking of you
when she washes my clothes and make them
all clean for me

so i will look like a decent man

let me tell frankly that i think of you while we make love
you are the bulb lighting in the darkness of my mind

i am so unkind
i am thinking of you

where were you when i needed you?

you are always in my mind.
that is your place, only in my mind

my wife is beside me.
she is concrete love to me.

your place is only in my mind
and you
cannot touch me.

like a cloud you will be here for the meantime
the right wind comes
and drifts you away

and you will no longer be in my mind

i guess things will turn out right
when the right wind comes along.

you are just a blue, ephemeral cloud.

Where Were You

(albert hammond, holly knight)
Producer for bonnie: roy bittan
Oh baby - I was always around
To pick you up when you were falling down
Now baby - when you were crying the blues
Wasnt I the one that you came crying to?
In all the years gone by
Youve never seen me cry
I never let you see the other side of me
Chorus:
Where were you
When I needed somebody to lean on?
Yeah where were you
When I needed a shoulder to cry on?
I always held you close when you were feeling weak
Guess I was walking down a one-way street
I was a fool to think that youd be there for me
Where were you?
Oh baby - when you needed a friend
I stuck beside you girl through thick and thin
Now baby - when no-one cared at all
Wasnt I the one that you would always call
I gave away my heart, I knew just where I stood
Till I reached out for you cause I thought I could
(chorus)
Now even more than what Im going through
The cut that hurts the most is your attitude
Youre pretty good at taking what you need
Youve got a lot to learn about loyalty...
Believe me baby...there were times
You drove me crazy...i was so blind
Where were you?
I never let you down when you were full of fear
Saved you from drowning in a sea of tears
Why baby why then werent you ever
There for me?
(chorus)

Where Were You Baby?

Where Were You Baby? - (Josh White)
As recorded by DonMclean
Now I've peeked through fancy boudoirs
Searched through window grates
But I only saw Republicans, romance and Southern states
And where were you baby, when my heart went out?
You left me ba___by, in all this darkness and doubt
Now I've tried to replace you with a streetwalker named desire
But price is up so high, hell I couldn't afford to try her
It takes you my baby to put my fire out
You left me baby, in all___ this darkness and doubt
But tonight I think I'm gonna take some good advice
I'm gonna look around and find somebody that's a really nice
Well perhaps a banker's daughter and if her Papa's a cuss
Well I hope to do to her what her Papa does to us
And we'll have fancy shack and a fancy Cadillac
And she'll be studying to be, a nymphomaniac
And we'll have a little rye and we'll play a little gin
We'll have another rye and we'll play another gin
And then we'll have another rye just to get a little blow
Have another rye just to make the conversations flow
And then we'll have another rye and we'll play a little gin
We'll have another rye and we'll tune some music in
And then we'll have another gin.... and we'll play a little rye...
And we'll suddenly realize that we're getting kind of high
And so we'll turn the lights down low...... to keep the bulbs from getting hot
And we'll play a little game called .. "Yes?"...."No!" ...
Why not?
But tonight I think I'm gonna find me something swell
So I can wake up in the morning... miserable as hell
Now when butter costs a dollar, bread costs more than cake
Come back soon cause think of what a gal like you could make
Yes come back baby don't ever say that we're through
Cos this time woman... I'd like to walk right out on you!

And the greatest is love.

Where Were You Then?

Sooner or later you and me will be lost dumb blind and free
Sooner or later you and I wont have anywhere to hide
Sooner or later everyone catches up to the things theyve done
Sooner or later everyone will get down as we kick it
Unwind, cut the ties, open wide and wait
Sooner or later things you say catch up and they make you pay
Sooner or later things you do they hurt only me and
Sooner or later everyone catches up to the things theyve done
Sooner or later everyone will get down as we kick it
Unwind, cut the ties, open wide and wait
Oh, where were you then
Oh, where were you then
Honey, sorry hey hey la la
Oh, where were you then
Sooner or later things you say catch up and they make you pay

Where Were You

1) Johnny was a man from a good town south of omaha
He lived his dreams and raised a family
But he could not see the way you see, all the people and the freaks
Were on the empty pages in his mind
2) Johnnys daddy died in the big war
They never found his body to this day
It was on that beach in Normandy, Johnny hoped he'd never see
His daddy washed away to an early grave
Chorus -
Where were you then
I'm on that street again
Wishing I could fly away forever
3) Johnnys' daughter hates her life in this goddamn town
She runs away forever to be free
But the city eats her sanity, she winds up livin' on the streets
Wishing she could be home by the fire
Chorus
4) Johnny died late one night in his empty bed
A lonley man with no one by his side
It was there he slipped into his dreams, with all the people and the freaks
right there by his side no longer alone
Chorus 2x

O My Love and Would Be! Where Were You Born?

O my love and would-be!
Where were you born?
In which land..which place..which street?
Are you younger..or equal or older to me?
Have you begun your search of me as I now?
Have you broadcast your mysterious signals in space
As my signals grope for yours all over the world?
What you expect of me..wealth or charm
Or strength...or love or status?
What are your dreams of life?
Would we make up a match?
Or fate tricks two diverging hearts into a choking knot?
I stray in every direction clueless and tired..
Sound your bugle loud and bold?
Even a faint call of love would add wings to my soul...
O that precise moment!
For what you await lurking in shadows...
No more breath to subsist on my dreams..
The heart aches..the wait scorches..
The loneliness licks my blood..
O winds! pick my pair's whispers joltless into my ears..
Bring the hot scent of born-for -me
So that I can scale heights and waves
To reach the half of me;
The moon teases me
And the stars heckle me-..
O my half! rush into me
To make me full!

Where Are You Now When I Need You?

Hey johnny, where are you now when I need you?
Now when I need you so bad?
Just one word come straight from your heart
Makes me feel so glad!
Death and disease walz together like starlets in this place
I sure would like to see your honest face
Hey eddie, where are you now when I miss you?
Now when I miss you like hell?
If you were here I know youd make me
Believe again in myself!
You dont owe me nothing
Im not calling you away
So please dont feel accused when I say
Where are you now when I need you?
Now when I need you so bad?
My heads almost exploding
And the tension drives me mad
And maybe you wonder
Do I really believe I need you?
But I do!
Hey you, where are you now when I dream about you
In nightmares every night?
You were on a big wheel high above me
Almost out of my sight
And just as I wake you shout down something that sounds like
Why are you not free?
But by the time Im dressed
Youre just a memory
Where are you now when I need you?
Now when I need you so bad?
When my heads almost exploding
And this tension drives me mad
And maybe you wonder
Do I really believe I need you?
But I do!
Hey mama, where are you now I hurt for you?
I hurt for you so hard?
If you heard this song, I know you youd come straight for me
Youd come somehow, no matter how far
Theres a hundred things that I want to say to you
And they come rushing through my head
But when we meet like we always do, we leave the best things unsaid
And my god! isnt that lonely?
Thats lonely as hell
To know the truth always but to be too scared to tell
Where are you now when I need you?
Now when I need you so bad?
When my hearts almost exploding
And this tension drives me mad
And maybe you wonder
Do I really believe I need you?
But I do!
But I do!
