Sing For The Common Man

You may not know me now
But I have been around
Youll never see my name on any pages
Im just the common man
The fool who understands
The pain you go through
When life takes you under
So, sing for the common man
A song for the common man
He paid for the song with the sweat of his brow
He will survive, he will survive
You may not know my mother
My sisters or my brothers
Yet everyone has given for the other
You know the working man
He builds what others plan
So, everyone of us should sing his story
So, sing for the common man
A song for the common man
He paid for the song with the sweat of his brow
He will survive, he will survive
Dat after day
He keeps working away
In offices, factories, and farms
Year after year
He sheds tear after tear
He will provide, he will survive
So, sing for the common man
A song for the common man
He paid for the song with the sweat of his brow
He will survive, he will survive

I see a blind man this morning

I see a blind man this morning
with dark glasses
and a cream coloured jacket
leading a blind woman
dressed similarly
and his white stick taps past me
and I wonder
how they manage
to get any direction
and it amazes me
that they find the bus stop so easily
and their love is apparent
when they embrace.

I know that life throws its
challenges to people,
but it’s what you make of it
that effects how it turns out
and there’s a God
that also looks after the blind.

Youll Never Be A Man

You need protection from the physical art of conversation
Though the fist is mightier than the lip, it adds the aggravation
Bridge and chorus:
I got the password
I got persuasion
A proposition for invasion of your privacy
Give yourself away and find the fake in me
Youll never be a man
No matter how many foreign bodies you can take
Youll never be a man
When youre half a woman and youre half awake
(1) with a face full of tears and a chemical shake
(2) under the table with a chemical shake
Given half a chance, that I can take
Are you so superior, are you in such pain
Are you made out of porcelain?
When they made you they broke the cast
Dont wanna be first, I just want to last
You strike a profile on the low side of my imagination
My eyes climbed down to find the point of possible saturation
Bridge and chorus

On My Way

Written by tommy shaw
Lead vocals by tommy shaw
...everybody plays this one right, everybody gets a fresh, hot latte and a scone...
Oh what a beautiful night
Couldnt get any clearer
Yeah what a wonderful sight
My old life in the rear view mirror
Hey now Im travelin light
Duffel bag and a six string
Yeah but it feels so right
To hear the bells of freedom ring
Gotta get away from
The same old same
Let a new day come
Start over again
Hey I was stuck in a grind
Little fish in a little pond
If I had a criminal mind
Id have got myself a gun
Had to get away from
The ball and chain
Let a new day come
Or start goin insane
Im on my way
Dont know to where
But Im gonna get there
On my way
Look at the world
With my brand new eyes
I cant believe I feel so high
Im on my way tonight
Hey I was going to seed
Spreading out like a corn field
I had so much denial to feed
I was full of nothing real
I had to get away from
My old routine
Let a new day come
Start over again
Im on my way
I dont know to where
But Im gonna get there
On my way
Look at the world
Through my brand new eyes
I cant believe I get to feel
So good
So high tonight
Starting tonight
There will be
A revival
In my world
Turn on the lights
And youll see
This one man band
Is now a symphony
And the sun
Is gonna shine
Like a summer time
That has no end
And the love
I will find
I have no doubt
That it will be mine
The love I find
Will all be mine
I had to get away while
I could still be saved
Let a new day come
Stop digging my grave
On my way...
I have faith
The road up ahead
Gonna get much easier
On my way
Look at me now
With a brand new life
I cant believe I feel so high
Im on my way tonight
...scuse me, waitress, lattes and scones for everybody!...

A Statue Has Spoken

I want the statue to speak,
I wish his lovely rule was dead,
And I desire the wrong head
Of a wonderful man fully in right.

This time a sea has opened before me
And this time they resent whole paths.
Love for her beautiful story is a great
Work of art.

I see a righteous man beg for mercy
In front of the day he was right.
This foot has blown off the other
With seas that meander like rivers.

Many arguments end the tale,
Much is the gradient of disbelief.

Hold Me Tight

Music :rudolf schenker
Lyrics:klaus meine, herman rarebell
Shes the one, thats what I thought
When our love had just begun
But times have changed
And is better go
Because its gonna be too late
And all my love will turn to hate
Youve always known
That music is my life
And I live just for rockn roll
No one can make me change my mind
cause I just want to live my life
Alright dont want me to stay
Alright have it your way
Alright Im leaving tonight
Alright woman, Ill get out of your sight
Youre still the one
But youve shown me
How independent youve become
Dont tell me you need, you need me
To be your ever faithful strong lovin man
Dont tell me Im wrong
I gotta go my way
And youll see, where I belong
You live your life and I live mine
I bet, you will turn out fine
Alright dont want me to stay
Alright have it your way
Alright Im leaving tonight
Alright woman, Ill get out of your sight
Alright dont want me to stay
Alright have it your way
Alright Im leaving tonight
Alright woman, Ill get out of your sight
Alright dont want me to stay
Alright have it your way
Alright Im leaving tonight
Alright woman, Ill get out of your sight

Leave It All Behind

Here we go
Closer to the end
Let me know
Ill be your only friend
Things you thought you understood
Are all the things I lack
So sorry
And Id leave it all behind
With no regard for what Ill find
In time youll see
That you cant breathe without me
Life and times go by
Well I know nothing is ok
Will it show if I try to numb the pain?
Things you thought you understood
Are all the things Im not
So sorry and so afraid

Screaming In Digital

I am the beat of your pulse
The computer word made flesh
We are one you and i
We are versions of the same
When you can see what I feel
Dont turn your back on me
Or you might find that your dreams
Are only program cards
Your mind is open for me
Open for intake of all propaganda
Your eyes see now what to see
My eyes see only the programs you give me
Ill teach you to laugh and to cry
Theyre really the same youll see
All of the whys in your life
Are under my control
Feed me more lines
I will try to tell you all I can
Before the light you must know what lies
Behind my screams
I cant tell you all I know
Am I the son that youve always been wanting
Theres more to me than what shows
Are you my father
The one that was promised
Hush now, Ill give all you need to know
And pre-live your dreams for you
Youre a good boy
Freedom belongs only to those
Without video screens
For eyes and mouth
You have no voice
To be heard my son
No one can hear when youre
Screaming in digital
Im not your slave
You cant control my emotions
No father, please let me keep learning
Cant you see Im human
Cant you tell
Im not your slave
Oh father no
Please dont keep me from dreaming
Oh cant someone hear

One Day

Knifing my way through a diamond mine
Dragging those rocks
From seabed to shoreline
Rubies and sapphires on emerald bay
Stretching across the milky way
One day... one day
Prospecting gold and staking my claim
But the only thing I treasure
Is hearing your name
Most everyone dreams diamonds and furs
I dream of love and baby its yours
One day... one day
One day youll realise
Youll see it on her eyes
No room for alibis - one day... one day...
One day youll realise
Feel me materialise
Youll see your just a fool to leave me
One day... one day... one day soon baby
They say that your life is an open book
Well I just wrote a chapter so take a look
Cant blame it on fate or destiny
Now that your book... it features me
One day... one day
One day youll realise
Youll see it in her eyes
No room for alibis - one day... one day...
One day youll realise
Feel me materialise
Youll see your just a fool to leave me
One day... one day... one day soon baby
Hardly a day goes by without me thinking of you
No matter how hard I try you cant escape a dream
Living my life - in the lap of luxury
Living my life - confuse me... confuse me babee
One day youll realise
Ill see it in your eyes
No room for compromise - one day... one day...
One day youll realise
Feel me materialise
Youll see your just a fool to leave me
You cant shake a dream - how I wish that you could
One day your mine get that understood
Until then each night I shall pray
For a love that lasts forever and...
One day... one day

Life Is Like A Beautiful Song

Life is like a beautiful song
It starts with melodious imagination
Of letters, notes, and tone
then put together, so sweet into song
And as the song goes on,
It flows and flows so softly in tune
But however beautiful the song might be,
It will end like a day
Go shorter..
Then lower..

My Cherie Amour

La la la la la la, la la la la la la
My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour, distant as the milky way
My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
Youre the only one my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street
Ive been near you, but you never noticed me
My cherie amour, wont you tell me how could you ignore
That behind that little smile I wore
How I wish that you were mine
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
Maybe someday youll see my face among the crowd
Maybe someday Ill share your little distant cloud
Oh cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
Youre the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour, distant as the milky way
My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
Youre the only one my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la

Common Things

I like to hear of wealth and gold,
And El Doradoes in their glory;
I like for silks and satins bold
To sweep and rustle through a story.

The nightingale is sweet of song;
The rare exotic smells divinely;
And knightly men who stride along,
The role heroic carry finely.

But then, upon the other hand,
Our minds have got a way of running
To things that aren't quite so grand,
Which, maybe, we are best in shunning.

For some of us still like to see
The poor man in his dwelling narrow,
The hollyhock, the bumblebee,
The meadow lark, and chirping sparrow.

We like the man who soars and sings
With high and lofty inspiration;
But he who sings of common things
Shall always share our admiration.

Common Ground

These are not dispassionate words of the cool
The headline still rules the editors a fool
Shall we douse out the flames or will everybody fuse
And leave us stranded here tomorrow
I heard a calling out, a cry from the heart
From the towns of cement and the beauty
A whisper its turned howl, man he didnt know
He was standing waiting for tomorrow
Nothings left, nothings found, there must be some common ground
I could never figure the calendars flow
Nor can I work out how the wild, wild wind blows
But were ready from within and were starting to go
Away from the place of no tomorrow
Nothings left, nothings found, there must be some common ground
Nothings left, (? ? ? ) I see there must be some common ground
Oh the wrecking fields are a terrible place
With a sulphurous smell and a frightening pace
And the hook goes early and the critic is king
Its hard to stay human and stand in the ring
Theres no time to be absent, a clown or a fool
While shylock is smiling were loaded like mules
If we surrender ourself to industrial rules
Well wake up in the wreckage of tomorrow
Now
Nothings left, nothings found, there must be some common ground
Nothings left, somethings found, can we see some common ground

No Man No Cry

No man, no cry
No man, no cry
Ive had enough of all your lies
And all your silly games
Im running out
Cant you see what youre doing?
I never ever thought that youd treat me so cruel
But you proved me wrong and now you know Im just a fool
Dont keep me guessing always stressing all the time
You want a play this game, true love is hard to find
And if I walk there wont be no more comin back
In fact youll be missing this wish
You should be kissin this
Baby check my rhyme
No man, no cry
No man thats all right
No we wont be played
Listen all you ladies cos the babes are takin over this place
No man, no cry
No man tellin me lies
No we wont be played
Were here to tell you fellas that the babes are takin over your place
Im feeling angry by the way you that you treat me lately
Do you see me as some fool, remember what Im worth boy
No disrespecting me or upsetting me with talk or this ladys gonna walk
And wile Im thinking baby, tell me what did you do
Just interrupt goof times that should have been with my crew
I bring you down when I tell your boys
I wont be sitting here now waiting for your call
I aint some littel girl baby you know the score
Dont want to feel like Im not the only one
Baby you did me wrong
Im not your bitch
Dont trip - Im movin on
No man, no cry
No man pass on by
No we wont be played
Listen all you ladies cos the babes are takin over this place
No man, no cry
No man tellin me lies
No we wont be played
Were here to tell you fellas that the babes are takin over your place
Im movin on
I said Im movin on
Im movin on and on, on
Movin on, movin on, movin
On, on, on
Said Im movin on
No man, no cry
No man thats all right
No we wont be played
Listen all you ladies cos the babes are takin over this place
No man, no cry
No man tellin me lies
No we wont be played
Were here to tell you fellas that the babes are takin over your place
No man, no cry
No man thats all right
No we wont be played, be played no more
No man, no cry
No man tellin me lies
No we wont be played

Hoochie Coochie Man

(by willie dixon)
Gypsy woman told my mother fore I was born,
You got a boy-child coming, gonna be a son of a gun.
Gonna make pretty womens jump and shout,
And then the world wanna know what this all about.
But you know Im here.
Everybody knows Im here.
Well, Im the hoochie coochie man.
Everybody knows Im here.
I got the black cat bone and I got a mojo tooth.
I got the john the conquerer root, gonna mess with you.
Im gonna make you girls lead me by my hand,
And then the world will know the hoochie coochie man.
Chorus
On the seventh hour, on the seventh day,
On the seventh month, seven doctors say,
He was born for good luck, that youll see.
I got seven hundred dollars; dont you mess with me!

Im Your Man

Here I go again
Finding it so hard to explain
The way I feel when I hold you near
Still it hurts when you cry
Maybe you think love has passed you by
Dont you know I need you so
But I guess you need to know
Im just a man, thats all I am
Im just a man, thats yours
Im yours you know Im yours
Life keeps changing key
Ill look to you please look back at me
See Im changing every day
Reaching out for happy days
But Im just a man thats all I am
Im just a man Im yours
Im simply yours
Life keeps changing key
Ill look to you please turn and look at me
Youll see Im changing every day
In my search for happy days
But then Im just a man
Thats all I am
Im just a man Im yours
Thats yours, simply yours
See me as I am, for Im just a man
Im just a man but Im yours
Oh Im yours Im simply yours

When A Man Loves A Woman

When a man loves a woman
He can't keep his mind on nothing else
He'll trade the world
For the good thing he's found
If she is bad he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down.
When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin' to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comfort
Sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be.
Well, this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin' to hold on to your precious love
Baby, please don't treat me bad.
When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes can never see.
When a man loves a woman
He can do no wrong
He can never hold some other girl
Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're my world.
When a man loves a woman...

Travellin Man

I was born a travellin man, thats all Ill ever be
Moving around from town to town its what makes me so free
My father was a trucker for the years since 23
On the day that I was born his blood was left for me
Im a travellin man
Travellin man -- thats what I am

No one puts a hold on me
Youll see me once or maybe twice

Shadow Of A Lonely Man

Lead vocal: john miles
Look at me now, a shadow of the man I used to be
Look through my eyes and through the years of lonliness youll see
To the times in my life when I could not stand to lose, a simple game
And the least of it all was the fortune and the fame
But the dream seemed to end just as soon as it had begun, was I to know?
For the least thing of all that was on my mind, was the close at the
End of the show
The shadow of a lonely man, feels nobody else
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
I can see myself
(looking out of nowhere, looking out of nowhere)
But the sounds of the crowds when they come to see me now, is not the same
And the jest of it all is I cant recall my name
But Ill cling to a hope till I cant hold on anymore, anymore
And for all the acclaim I am all alone and I see as I look through the door
The shadow of a lonely man, theres nobody else
In the shadow of a lonely, lonely man
I can see myself
Look at me now, a shadow of the man I used to be

Closet Man

(foster / mercury / gerrard)
Your secrets safe inside me
Closet man
Safe under lock and key
Understand
What youre thinkin is important
Isnt really so, youll see
But your secrets absolutely safe with me
Your lovers songs and nights
Turn into tears
Your tattoos and your muscles
Disappear
And the ring that I once gave you
Now, youre wearin in your ear
But your secrets absolutely safe my dear
Oh, your secrets safe with me
Oh, your secrets safe right here with me
Oh, your secrets safe with me
Oh, your secrets safe right here with me
You know, its all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man
Theres nothing new at all under the sun
Youve got company
Youre not the only one
Why, its older than religion
And, quite honestly, more fun
But your secrets absolutely safe my dear, dont worry
Oh, your secrets safe with me
Oh, your secrets safe right here with me
Oh, your secrets safe with me
Oh, your secrets safe right here with me
You know, its all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man, yeah
You know, its all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man
You know, its all right to go on and live your life
So, come out into the light
Closet man
