2 Years On

length: 3:57
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
arranger: Gerry Shury
writer: Maurice Gibb, Robin Gibb
One year, two years, time goes by.
People laugh and people cry.
Every morning the clock strikes eight.
I go to work.
I close the gate.
And on my way, I sing a song.
About my wife, where I belong.

If the clouds get together and talk about the weather
If it's rain they anticipate
Baby make no mistake
Yes the storm will break but never me you see.
Two years on two years on
But only you can see me.
Only you can see me.

For what I've got
Sir Lancelot was just a dream and I am not
For I am he with something more
It's you and I reality.

If the cloud get together and talk about the weather
If it's rain they anticipate
Baby, make no mistake
Yes the storm will break but never me you see
Two years on two years on
But only you can see me
Only you can see me

Two years on two years on

Portrait of Louise

length: 2:34
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
lyricist: Barry Gibb
composer: Barry Gibb
Summers come and summers go
But I still need the rain
All your vines will overgrow
And winds will blow insane

But I'm not goin' to move
And I won't make you cry
You can shelter in my home
And I won't ask you why

Friends will come and friends will go
But you stay on my train
All your wines will overflow
As winds will blow insane

But I'm not goin' to move
And I won't make you cry
You can shelter in my home
And I won't ask you why
You can shelter in my home
And I won't ask you why

Man for All Seasons

producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
writer: Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb
Everybody wants to leave
Just like you and I
I have all year to smile
A tear for every eye

Life closed it's eyes, broke my world, now I cry
I've got to tell you, I've got the reasons
'Cause I'm a man, a man for all seasons, alive

And would I pray
What makes the world go round
I haven't got today
My mind is lost and found

Life closed it's eyes and said goodbye, now I cry
But I've got to tell you, I've got my reasons
'Cause I'm a man, a man for all seasons, alive
And would I pray what makes the world go round
I haven't got today, my mind is lost and found
Do do do do do do do

I'm a man for all seasons [Repeat: x4]

Sincere Relation

length: 2:45
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb

arranger: Gerry Shury
composer: Robin Gibb
lyricist: Robin Gibb
George was born somewhere inside London town
Working as he grew for that extra pound.
Respected by all he married and made a home.
To give his children more then he had known.

But then he died with out an explanation.
He never lied, a very sincere relation.

Years before a fire sent him in the street.
It took him months of work to make ends meet.

But then he died without and explanation.
He never lied, a very sincere relation .

Back Home

length: 1:51
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
writer: Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb, Barry Gibb
Took a plane to Cairo
Then a Cessna to Rome
I got hijacked to Tel Aviv
And it's the first time that I've flown

But I've found my Shangri-la
In a place that's not too far, back home

Took a train to Jordan
And to Texas and back
I met Lyndon B. Johnson and I felt his hand on my back

But I found my Shangri-la
In a place that's not too far, back home

Back home, back home
back home, back home
back home, back home
(repeat back home and fade)

The 1st Mistake I Made

length: 4:02
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
composer: Barry Gibb
lyricist: Barry Gibb
I ain't got no claim to nothing,
I don't mess with anyone,
I walk my way
Living in a masquerade.

And one day I looked behind me
At all the things I've done,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

I was born to a lonely woman
In a town called Buffalo.
Never knew the man
Who never stayed.

With my 12-string on my back
I discovered every track,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

With a million hearts I've broken.
I never kept the score.
Memories of good love
Hate to stay.

But I still remember someone
Who loved me so much more,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

So, when nothing's worth the living
And in the night I look above.
Prayed, about a million times
I prayed.

I know my story ended
When I lost my only love,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

I was born to a lonely woman
In a town called Buffalo.
Never knew the man
Who never stayed.

With my 12-string on my back
I discovered every track,
That's the first mistake
I ever made.

Good morning mister sunshine, you brighten up my day.
Come sit beside me in your way.
I see you every morning, outside the restaurants,
The music plays so nonchalant.

Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?
Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?

Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?
Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?

Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?

Good morning mister sunshine, you brighten up my day.
Come sit beside me in your way.

Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?
Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?

Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?
Lonely days, lonely nights.
Where would I be without my woman?

Alone Again

producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
composer: Robin Gibb
lyricist: Robin Gibb
'leaving' that's all you ever seem to say and I'm tired
The wants you have me for have expired
Sleeping and reading every book I can find to get my mind off
In all I was a soul you were using
I am alone again
You can't believe the tears that I've shed
I'm on a bound down train
Don't desert me now or I am dead

People, the sun is going down on your heads so read your paper
There's no one there for you to confide in
It's instinct to always to have a shoulder to cry on
And to rely on
Someone there to share and to shine on
I am alone again
You can't believe the tears that I've shed
I'm on a bound down train
Don't desert me now or I am dead

[Repeat: x2]
I am alone again
You can't believe the tears that I've shed
I'm on a bound down train
Don't desert me down or I am dead

Tell Me Why

length: 3:13
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
composer: Barry Gibb
lyricist: Barry Gibb
If you think that you can hurt me and make my cry
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
And if you think that you can hurt me with lies that cry
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Now I've got my reasons for feeling this way
Day after day and as nights go by
So, if you think my heart is broken and I might die
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
All of the world is as lonely as me
Day after day and as nights go by
So if you think my heart is broken and I might die
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

Lay It on Me

arranger: Gerry Shury
composer: Maurice Gibb
lyricist: Maurice Gibb
Don't you drink with me ''cause you know that I'm a loser.
And I'm proud of that fact as you can plainly see.
Never did what people said. I should've.
I'm just a low down critter who never did any good.
I'm just a low down critter who never did any good.

I spend my life working up a sweat to be a bad boy.
Getting girls into trouble every day.
Going from town to town.
Now I tell you I've been around.
I'm just a low down critter who never did any good.
I'm just a low down critter who never did any good.

Lay it on me, yeah,
Don't you drink with me 'cause I tell you that I'm a loser.
And I'm proud of that fact as you can plainly see.
Going from town to town. Now I tell you I've been around.
I'm just a low down critter who never did any good.
I'm just a low down critter who never did any good.

I’m Weeping

length: 2:45
producer: Robert Stigwood, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb
engineer: John Stewart and Lew Hahn
composer: Robin Gibb
lyricist: Robin Gibb
When I was 10 years old, my parents were poor
Our house was so cold
And I was still in school and learning
And then I never really got too far
And everyone we knew had money
And driving a car, and driving a car

Now I'm twenty-one
The street where I lived is blown up and gone
And I've had a good day crying
And the world around has changed a lot
I never really gave much more
Much more then I got, much more then I got
