No More "I Love You's"

length: 4:52
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Marius de Vries and Heff Moraes
writer: David Freeman, Joseph Hughes

Do be do be do do do oh
Do be do be do do do oh

I used to be a lunatic from the gracious days
I used to feel woebegone and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed for you to see
Oh, but now
I don't find myself bouncing home
Whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry

No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more I love you's
Changes are shifting
Outside the words

The lover speaks about the monsters
I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire, despair, desire
So many monsters

Oh, but now
I don't find myself bouncing around
Whistling my conscience to make me cry

No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more I love you's
The language is leaving me in silence
No more I love you's
Changes are shifting
Outside the words

And people are being real crazy
But we will only come
And you know what mommy?
Everybody was being real crazy
The monsters are crazy.
There are monsters outside

No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more I love you's
The language is leaving me in silence
No more I love you's
Changes are shifting outside the words
Outside the words

No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more I love you's
Changes are shifting outside the words

Do be do be do do do oh
Do be do be do do do oh
Outside the words

Take Me to the River

length: 3:34
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Heff Moraes
writer: Al Green, Mabon Hodges
I don't know why I love her like I do
All the changes you put me through
Take my money, my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, dip me in the water

Washing me down, washing me down
I don't know why you treat me so bad
Think of all the things we could have had
Love is an ocean that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Push me in the river, dip me in the water

Washing me down, washing me
Hug me, squeeze me, love me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't, till I can't take no more of it
Take me to the water, drop me in the river
Push me in the water, drop me in the river
Washing me down, washing me down
I don't know why I love you like I do
All the troubles you put me through
Sixteen candles there on my wall
And here am I the biggest fool of them all

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river and drop me in the water
Dip me in the river, drop me in the water
Washing me down, washing me down.

A Whiter Shade of Pale

length: 5:18
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Marius de Vries and Heff Moraes
composer: Matthew Fisher, Gary Brooker
lyricist: Keith Reid
We skipped the light fandango,
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor,
I was feeling kind of sea-sick,
And the crowd called out for more,
And the room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away,
When we called out for another drink
But the waiter brought a tray.
And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

You said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see,
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be.
And one of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast,
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well be closed.
And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.
A whiter shade of pale,
Turned a whiter shade of pale,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.

Don't Let It Bring You Down

length: 3:39
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Heff Moraes
composer: Neil Young
lyricist: Neil Young
Old man lying by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by
Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load
And the buildings scrape the sky

Cold wind ripping down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flys
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes

Refrain:
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burning
Find someone who's turning
And you will come around

Blind man running through the light of the night
With an answer in his hand
Come on down to the river of sight
And you can really understand

Red lights flashing through the window in the rain
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying in the gutter in the lane
And you're walking home alone

(Repeat refrain, first stanza, refrain)

Train in Vain

length: 4:44
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Heff Moraes
writer: Joe Strummer, Mick Jones
They say you stand
By your man
Tell me something
I don't understand
You said you loved me
And that's a fact
And then you left me
Said you felt trapped

Well,somethings you can explain away
But the heartache's with me till this day

[Chorus]
did you stand by me
No,not at all
Did you stand by me
No way

All the times
That we were closed
I remember
These things the most
I've seen all our dreams
Come tumblin' down
I can't stay happy
Without you around

So alone I keep the wolves a bay
And there's only one thing I can say

[Chorus]

You must explain
Why this must be
Did you lie
When you spoke to me

Did you stand by me
No,not at all

Now I got a job
But it don't pay
I need new clothes
I need somewhere to stay
But without all these things I can do
But without your love I won't make it through
Without you love I won't make it through

But you don't understand my point of view
I suppose there's nothing I can do

[Chorus: x2]

Stand by me,no way
Stand by me,not at all
Stand by me,no way
Stand by me,not at all
Stand by me,no way

And I, I don't just know what to say about it

(buchanan)

Sometimes I walk away
When all I really wanna do
Is love and hold you right
There is just one thing I can say
Nobody loves you this way
It’s all right,can’t you see
The downtown lights

In love we’re all the same
We’re walking down an empty street
And with nobody calling on me
Empty street,empty night
The downtown lights

*how do I know you feel it
How do I know you feel it
How do I know you feel it
How do I know you feel it
It’s all right

Tonight and every night
Let’s go walking down this empty street
Let’s walk in the cool evening night
Wrong or right,be t my side
The downtown lights
It will be all right
It will be all right
The downtown lights

(*repeat)

Neons and cigarettes
The rented rose and rented cars
The crowded streets,the empty bars
Chimneytops,the trumpets
The golden lights,the loving prayers
Colored shoes,the empty trains
I’m tired of cring on the stairs
The downtown lights

Thin Line Between Love and Hate

length: 4:56
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Heff Moraes
writer: Richard Poindexter, Robert Poindexter, Jackie Members
[Chorus]
It's a thin line between love and hate
It's a thin line between love and hate

It's five o'clock in the morning
And you're just getting in
A knock upon the door
A voice sweet and low says
(who is it?)
She opens up the door
And she lets you in
And never once does she say
"where have you been?"

She says,"hold it,
Are you hungry,did you eat yet,
Let me hang up your coat now"
And all the time she's smiling
Never raises her voice
It's five o'clock in the morning
And you don't give it a second thought

[Chorus]

The sweetest woman in the world

Could be the meanest woman in the world
If you make her be that way
She might be holding something in
That's really gonna hurt you
One of these fine days

There you are in the hospital
Bandaged from foot to head
In a state of shock
That much from bein' dead
You didn't think your woman
Could do something like that to you
You didn't think she'd got the nerve
Accidents speak louder than words
Louder than words
Louder than words
Louder than words,come on

Come on,baby, baby
If you won't give a damn about me
Come on baby, baby
You don't really care about me

Hear what I say
Hear what I say

Thanks to Booster999 for the correction

lyricist: Bob Marley
(marley)

From the very first time I rest my eyes on you,boy
My heart said follow through but I know now
That I’m way down on your line
But the waiting feeling’s fine

So don’t treat me like a puppet on a string
Because I know how to do my thing
Don’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumb
I wanna know when you’re gotta come,you see

*i don’t wanna wait in a vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in a vain for your love
I don’t wanna wait in a vain for your love
’cause sommer is here
And I’m still waiting there
Winter is here
I’m still waiting there

Like I said
It’s been three years since I’m knocking on your door
And still I can knock some more
Ooh boy,ooh boy,is it crazy look,i wanna know now
For I to knock some more,you see

In life I know
That there is lots of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn
Tears in my eyes burn
While I’m waitin’
While I’m waitin’ for my turn,you see

(*repeat)

Like I said-
I don’t wanna,i don’t wanna
I don’t wanna,i don’t wanna
I don’t wanna wait in vain
I don’t wanna,i don’t wanna
I don’t wanna,i don’t wanna
I don’t wanna wait in vain

It’s been three years since I’m knocking on your door
And still I can knock some more
Ooh boy,ooh boy,is it crazy look,i wanna know now
Like I said,the tears in my eyes burn
Tears in my eyes burn
While I’m waiting
While I’m waiting for my turn,you see
Ooh boy,ooh boy,is it crazy look,i wanna know now
For I to knock some more
In life I know there is lots of grief
But your love is my relief

Something So Right

length: 3:56
producer: Stephen Lipson
mixer: Heff Moraes
engineer: Heff Moraes
lyricist: Paul Simon
composer: Paul Simon
You've got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You've got the look of love light
In your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
'Til you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down

[Chorus]
When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
I've got a wall around me
You can't even see
It took a little time
To get to me

[Chorus]

Some people never say the words
I love you
It's not their style
To be so bold
Some people never say those words
I love you
But like a child they're longing
To be told

[Chorus]

Heaven

length: 4:57
lyricist: Richard Butler
writer: Tim Butler
Heaven is the home of the hearts
And heaven don't tear you apart
Yea heaven is the home of the hearts
And heaven don't tear you apart

There's too many kinks want to hold you down
And the world is a window gone underground
There's a hole in the sky where the sun don't shine
And a clock on the wall and it counts my time

Heaven is the home of our hearts
And heaven don't tear you apart

There's a song on the air with a love-you-line
And a face in a glass and it looks like mine
And I'm standing on ice when I say that I don't hear planes
And I scream at the fools want to jump my train

Heaven can take you up take you high
Take you up to the place
Where you're gonna find peace
Peace in your heart
Peace in your heart
You don't have to suffer...
