Lay Me Down lyrics - badfinger

[Intro:]
Need your loving
need your loving
need your loving
it's everything to me X 2

Take me high take me low
show me anything that you know
but tonight little lover lay me down
Make me laugh make me cry tell me how and tell me why
but tonight lover little lay me down

Lay me down move me round
let me hear your loving sound
In our mess we are blessed with our love
Take and give take and live all the love that we have found
And just send all our problems away

Play me fun play me sad
tell me things that could make you glad
but tonight lover little Lay me down
lay me down
Need you loving....

Play to share play to care
you can play with me anywhere
but tonight lover little lay me down
But tonight lover little lover lay me down
lay me down
Need your loving.........

Hey, Mr. Manager lyrics - badfinger

Waiting for the phone to tell me you and I are through
And I'm not alone, I guess that everybody wants it, too

You got no feeling, you've been dealing all the wrongs
Your lies are stealing Lord, I think you should be gone

Hey, Mr. Manager You're messing up my life
Hey, Mr. Manager Don't think I need that kind of strife

It's the same old story, we all know it to the end
But without your boring glory, we could live again

You got no feeling, you've been dealing all the wrongs
Your lies are stealing God, I think you should be gone

Hey, Mr. Manager You're messing up my life
Hey, Mr. Manager Don't think I need that kind of strife

Laying down these lines This song's especially for you
It may be simple But in some ways, so are you!

Hey, Mr. Manager You're messing up my life
Hey, Mr. Manager Don't think I need that kind of, that kind of, that kind of strife

Waiting for the phone to tell me
You and I are through.

Keep Believing lyrics - badfinger

[Intro:]
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

I couldn't wish you any bad I only miss the many highs we've had
our problems made it hard to smile
But I still loved you all the while
I can't deny that times have changed
I only wish we could have rearranged it
We were the pawns in someone else's game

Keep believing you can make it now
keep believing you can work it out
Keep believing you can make it now

I know the pace was rather slow
but I was not the one to run the show
Our problems made it hard to talk
slowing run down to a walk
I would have liked for things to last
but now I know that time has put it past
We were the pawns and we became the thing

[Chorus:]
If you wanna blame somebody you can blame it all on me
Just believe and you will see
just believe and you will see

I can't deny that times have changed
I only wish we could have rearranged it
We were the pawns in someone else's game

[Chorus]

Do do do do..........

Passed Fast lyrics - badfinger

You rise and sing the glory of the future that is passed make it last
Lost inside the reason of a love I hope will last we can fast
Come on, your highest hope the hopes, the dreams will last
Nothing is impossible you know what you must do
The flame the hopes will see you through

Time will not let you wait this time it's tearing you apart let it start
Nothing can deny it all the love that's in your heart in my heart

Come on, your highest hope the hopes, the dreams will last
The future promises will pass
Nothing is impossible you know what you must do
The flame the hopes will see you through are you through

Rock 'N' Roll Contract lyrics - badfinger

Know you can Know you can
Know you can Know you can

Wrapped up in a Rock 'N' Roll Contract
Lots of things I had to sign at the time
Man told me not to worry 'bout the business
Just keep on poppin' those hits

Know you can Know you can
Know you can Know you can

Sat down in my pyramid mansion
Old Martin seems to know all the chords
Tired of beggin', I can make it without them
Played the blues so I wouldn­t get bored

You made me your slave. Whatever God gave me
You took to the grave, now it­s gone
I gave you my heart. Whatever God gave me
You took to the grave, now it­s gone
Yeah, it­s gone
Gone

Smokin', chokin', drinkin', sinkin', falling over
Cokin', flyin', speedin', dyin', roll me over
Roll me over (wrapped up in a Rock 'N' Roll Contract)
Roll me over (wrapped up in a Rock 'N' Roll Contract)

Know you can Know you can

Saville Row lyrics - badfinger

[Instrumental]

Moonshine lyrics - badfinger

Baby shine a light on me tell what you're gonna be everythings alright
You're in my thoughts tonight
Passing by moonshine moonshine
One and one is three is that the way it's gotta be the world is yours is mine
To live in cool delight

Moonshine moonshine moonshine

Back Again lyrics - badfinger

Love me tonight, say you just might
Make me in the morning, take me without warning, please
Don't get uptight say it's alright
When the day is dawning. You can make the most out of me

But if you wake up and I'm gone. I'll be back again
You filled my nights with your love and played my games

Songs of the road See me alright
Take me where I'm going Say a little prayer for me
Doing what I like Tell me it's alright
See my disposition Give me your prescription, please

And if you wake up and I'm gone I'll be back again
You filled my nights with your love You played my games

And if you wake up and I'm gone I'll be back again
You filled my nights with your love. You played my games

Turn Around lyrics - badfinger

As we've turned these empty pages. I have seen the sweat and pain
Do we have to waste these ages. Going through it all over again?
Let's forget all the dreams we had
Play your dreams of yesterday

When will we ever learn? When will we turn around?
When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?

All that's left now is to keep on hoping We can change the dice that's cast
I remember how they laughed then But I knew it wouldn't last
I've tried so hard to close my eyes
But I just can't close my mind

When will we ever learn? When will we turn around?
When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?

One thing's for certain while we're here
One thing's for sure, only the fear

I've tried so hard to close my eyes
But I just can't close my mind

When will we ever learn? When will we turn around?
When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?

Hey, yea.

Rockin' Machine lyrics - badfinger

A-one, two, buckle my blues...

I'm making it this time
I'm making it this time

I'm making it this time around
Before I lose my mind again
Before I lose my mind

At times she rules my mind
I sit here marking time
Well, I'm well in with the rockin' machine
Put me down, you don't know where I've been
Oh, I'm a rockin' machine

Lately, I've been thinking what makes a man
But I can't for the life of me
Get away from the rockin' machine
Oh, I'm a rocking machine
Oh, I'm a rocking machine
Oh, I'm a rocking machine.

Time Is Mine lyrics - badfinger

Time Is Mine - [lyrics not yet available]

Smoking Gun lyrics - badfinger

Once upon a ruthless time
Lived a man folks thought was kind
People called him laughing Will
But inside he loved to kill

Ruled a city with his mob
A connoisseur on the way to rob
And some refused him, they're dead or lame
And old Will always dodged the blame

Johnny could not help be near
But he saw Will's face quite clear
Old Will Parker saw him run
Followed with his smoking gun

He was just a fairground boy
A-helping him on the wheel of joy
He pulled no punches, he played the game

Old Fashioned Notions lyrics - badfinger

You're filling my head with your notions
You take what you want
mess up the man in me
Making a fuss about no one
There's devils in your head
Such an old fashioned notion, baby

Now you're putting me on once again
I see you looking for another one
To play a pawn in your game
You're gonna be the death of me
Go play in someone else's tree
You're gonna end up in a dream
You're gonna be a star

People will try to bring you down
Don't let them see you when you frown
People will come, people will go
In my time, be mine. Pray in time

Bend my space, distort my time
Forsake those who stay behind
Revelations in my time
Kill the prophet, drink your wine

Tear a page out of your memory
You can buy a replacement part of me
And what fate will we find?

It's hard for me to be in any other dream
Maybe I'm a fool compared with you
What can I do

You Ask Yourself Why lyrics - badfinger

The more you see of your love
The more you must try
Try to throw away those reasons to cry
It's no surprise you wonder why
You ever believed it
But still you have a reason why
You wanna conceive it
There's no real reason to deny
All that you need's inside
I say there's no reason to cry

All all that you see that is love
You ask yourself why
They know why you feel the pain go by
You don't ask why you read the news
And you better believe it
As clouds go by you see anew
And you wanna perceive it
There's no real reason to deny
All that you see pass by
Is in order to see you and I

All that you see pass by
Is in order to see you and I

Keep Your Country Tidy lyrics - badfinger

Keep your country tidy keep rubbish off the floor
Poor old Mother Nature can't take it anymore
Leave things as you find them. It's not hard to do
If your country's tidy so are you

Keep your lover happy keep evil from your door
And when you think you're given then give her even more
Don't forget the small things they're not hard to do
Keep your lover happy just for you

Take me away to the beautiful day I remember
Pull me down, move me round, pull me down
Wish I could stay from beginning of May 'til September
Pull me down, move me round, pull me down

Keep your lover happy keep evil from your door
And when you think you're given then give her even more
Don't forget the small things they're not hard to do
Keep your lover happy just for you

To Say Goodbye lyrics - badfinger

It's late. I know it's time we were letting go
But I can't bring myself to say goodbye
It's been so long. There's no use in holding on
But I can't bring myself to say goodbye

I know so well what I have to do
But my heart gets in the way
I'm standing here. I'm just a fool in love
What can I do or say

I know. I see, but now that you're here with me
I can't bring myself to say goodbye

But I can't bring myself to say goodbye

I know so well what I have to do
But my heart gets in the way
I'm standing here. I'm just a fool in love
What can I do or say
I can't bring myself to say goodbye
I can't bring myself to say goodbye

Queen Of Darkness lyrics - badfinger

Queen of darkness colour your hair
Let it shine bright. He'll be there

Queen of lies. Magic smile
Spin your web. Watch him die

Queen of sorrow is what you are
Sad and lonely, with no truthful friends
No truthful friends

Queen of darkness with your head in your hands
So full of sorrow just won't understand
No you won't understand

I Can't Believe lyrics - badfinger

I can't believe in some of the stories
Some of the stories they say about you

I can't believe in some of the rumours
Quick growing tumours, they're making me blue

Mother confessor leave me alone
Father depressor you're overgrown
You're on your own, what you're saying now

I can't believe in some of the stories
Some of the stories they say about you

I can't believe in some of the rumours
Quick growing tumours, they're making me blue

Mother confessor leave me alone
Father depressor you're overgrown
You're on your own, what you're saying now

The Very Best Of (2000)

No Matter What lyrics - badfinger

No matter what you are
I will always be with you
Doesn't matter what you do, girl
Ooh girl, with you

No matter what you do
I will always be around
Won't you tell me what you found, girl
Ooh girl, want you

CHORUS:
Knock down the old, grey wall
Be a part of it all
Nothing to say, nothing to see, nothing to do
If you would give me all
As I would give it to you
Nothing would be, nothing would be, nothing would be

No matter where you go
There would always be a place
Can't you see it in my face, girl
Ooh girl, want you

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

CHORUS

REPEAT VERSE 1

Ooh girl, you girl, want you
Ooh girl, you girl, want you.

Day After Day lyrics - badfinger

I remember finding out about you
Every day, my mind is all around you
Looking out from my lonely room, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

I remember holding you while you sleep
Every day, I feel the tears that you weep
Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

[duel slide guitar solo (Pete Ham and George Harrison)]

Looking out of my lonely room, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

I remember finding out about you
Every day, my mind is all around you
Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you.

Baby Blue lyrics - badfinger

Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long, my love
All that time without a word
Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget or I'd regret
The special love I had for you, my baby blue

All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize that I would know
I would show the special love I have for you, my baby blue

What can I do, what can I say
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you, show me the way
Don't you know the times I've tried?

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

Guess that's all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day
Just one thing before I go
Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow
The special love you have for me, my Dixie, dear.

Name Of The Game lyrics - badfinger

I saw the railway master and I looked him in the eye
I said, "Would you go much faster if you thought that you would die?"
He said, "Not me sir, I could not care, in fact, I would not try.
For protest would not take me far.
It's different, me not being a star."
I lock my feelings in a jar until another day

Oh, comfort me, dear brother, won't you tell me what you know?
For somewhere in this painful world is a place where I can go
Oh, long awaiting mother, is it time to make a show?
And take your babies to your breast
No, we never passed the test
And all our sins should be confessed before we carry on

CHORUS:
Oh, don't refuse me
If you choose me, you'll follow my shame
No, don't confuse me
For I know it's the name of the game

I got up off my pillow and I looked up at the sun
I said, "You can see quite clearly, now, the things that we have done
We burned your sacred willow and our battles we have won.
But did we get so very far?
It's different, me not being a star."
I lock my feelings in a jar until we go away

CHORUS 2 times.

Maybe Tomorrow lyrics - badfinger

Listen to a lonely sound. See the grey and sadness all around
See the people go their way. Care not of me and love I've lost today

Maybe tomorrow, I will love again
I'll never know until I've looked into her eyes
Maybe tomorrow, I will love again
I'll never know until I've seen her once or twice

And so I'm living for a dream. Each lonely day spent looking for the sunshine
I'll make believe that I don't care. I'll tell my friends I love my life, I'm happy

Maybe tomorrow, I will love again
I'll never know until I've looked into her eyes
Maybe tomorrow, I will love again
I'll never know until I've seen her once or twice

Wherever, whoever you may be. Let the light of your love
Shine through the window of my heart
Then when you've coloured all my thoughts bright
Don't let me ever ever think of night, no-oo yeah!

Maybe tomorrow you will love again
I'll never know until I've looked into her eyes
Maybe tomorrow you will love again
I'll never know until I've seen her once or twice
Maybe tomorrow you will love again

Come And Get It lyrics - badfinger

If you want it, here it is come and get it
Mmmm, make your mind up fast
If you want it, anytime I can give it
But you better hurry cause it may not last

Did I hear you say that there must be a catch
Will you walk away from a fool and his money
If you want it, here it is come and get it
But you better hurry cause it's going fast

If you want it, here it is come and get it,
Mmmm, make your mind up fast
If you want it, anytime I can give it
But you better hurry cause it may not last

Did I hear you say that there must be a catch
Will you walk away from a fool and his money

Sonny, if you want it, here it is come and get it
But you better hurry cause it's going fast
You'd better hurry cause it's going fast
Fool and his money

Sonny, if you want it, here it is come and get it
But you better hurry cause it's going fast
You'd better hurry cause it's going fast
You'd better hurry cause it's going fast

Rock Of All Ages lyrics - badfinger

Well, your taking all my money and I guess you think it's funny but I don't - my my

Carry On Till Tomorrow lyrics - badfinger

In younger days, I told myself my life would be my own
And I'd leave the place where sunshine never shone
For my life's too short for waiting when I see the rising sun
Then I know again that I must carry on
Carry on till tomorow, there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Beyond the shadows of the clouds and onward to the sky
Carry on till I find the rainbow's end
For my life's too short for waiting when I see the rising sun
Then I know again that I must carry on

Carry on till tomorow, there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on

Drifting on the wings of freedom, leave this stormy day
And we'll ride to tomorrow's golden fields
For my life's too short for waiting when I see the rising sun
Then I know again that I must carry on

Carry on, carry on, carry on

And when the heavy journey's done, I'll rest my weary head
For the world and it's colours will be mine
For my life's too short for waiting when I see the setting sun
Then I know again that I must carry on

Carry on till tomorow, there's no reason to look back
Carry on, carry on, carry on

Midnight Caller lyrics - badfinger

Beneath the midnight caller
She thinks of paper green
You never hear them calling her name
They just know where they've been

You never hear her holler
The tears no longer come
She reads her daily book of the past
That shows of everyone

Grey years that show in her hair
Can't be, but don't seem to care
She unlocks the door and there's no one there

She sees a daytime stroller
Walk from the night before
And though she paints a smile on her face
He won't be back no more

She's got no saint to follow
She's got no place to go
Too proud to ask an old friend for help
Too proud to let him know

Grey years that show in her hair
Can't be, but don't seem to care
She knocks the door and there's no one there

Nobody (nobody), nobody (nobody), nobody's gonna help you now.

We're For The Dark lyrics - badfinger

Tell me the day and I'll set you free, what you wanna be
Show me the way and I'll let you see what you do to me
Well, it's not enough to live
If you're gonna take, then you have to give
We're for the dark, mm-baby, you and I

Show me the clouds and I'll give you sky if you want me to
Show me the crowds and I'll make you sigh if you take me through
Well, it's not enough to be
If you're gonna look, then you have to see
We're for the dark, mm-baby, you and I
A-baby, you and I-hi
A-baby, you and I-hi-hi
A-baby, you and I-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

Show me the way and I'll set you free, what you oughta be
Tell me the day and I'll let you see what you do to me
Well, it's not enough to live
If you're gonna take, then you have to give
We're for the dark, mm-baby, you and I

Show me the clouds and I'll give you sky if you want me to
Show me the crowds and I'll make you cry if you take me through
Well, it's not enough to be
If you gotta look, then you have to see
We're for the dark, mm-baby, you and I-hi
Baby, you and I-hi
Baby, you and I-hi
A-baby, you and I-hi-hi
A-baby, you and I-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.

I'll Be The One lyrics - badfinger

Where did you go when you were needed?
Was it some place I know where they care?
Rise in the rain
I learned to get by without you for the pain in my heart

I'll be the one, we'll be together
I'll be the one, forever and ever

Look at me now, am I the loser?
If you can't tell me how, tell me why
But just the same
I learned to get by without you for the pain in my heart

I'll be the one, we'll be together
I'll be the one, forever and ever and ever,
Ooooh oooh oooh, ahhhh Ooooh, ahhhh

I'll be the one, we'll be together
I'll be the one, forever and ever and ever
Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh...

Without You lyrics - badfinger

Well, I can't forget this evening
And your face when you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows

Well, I can't forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
I had you there, but then I let you go
And now it's only fair that I should let you know
What you should know

CHORUS:
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore
I can't live, if living is without you
I can't live, I can't give anymore

Well, I can't forget this evening
And your face when you were leaving
But I guess that's just the way the story goes
You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows

[guitar solo]

CHORUS 3 times

I can't live, if living is without you.

I'd Die Babe lyrics - badfinger

You give me loving like crazy
You make my daisy grow high
You treat me good, so I'm lazy
You make me feel so alive

You get me feeling I'm okay
And I've got nothing to hide
And if you're leaving for a while, babe
You know, I'd die babe, babe, I'd die

CHORUS:
I tell you I love you
I'll tell you no lies
I tell you I need you
And I want you by my side

Used to be cold and lonely
You came along with your smile
And if you leave now, I'll cry, babe
You know, I'd die babe, babe, I'd die

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

CHORUS

Used to be cold and lonely
You came along with your smile
And if you leave now and cry, babe
You know, I'd die babe, babe, I'd die

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

It's Over lyrics - badfinger

Pack the bag, I'm goin' away
It's over, goin' home
Thank your people, but it's too much to stay
It's done now, I'm goin' home

CHORUS:
Now I feel like I'm one
Now I feel like I'm due
Spent my time in some fun
And for that, I thank you
It's over, it's over, it's over, I'm goin' home
It's over, it's over, and for that I thank you

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

CHORUS.

When I Say lyrics - badfinger

What you are is what I see
What I see is what I want it to be
When I say I love you
What I mean is I really do

CHORUS:
I'm not the one who'll give you everything you need
But what I mean is that I'll try
I can't deny that I've been burning inside
For all the things I'll never see

So come on, be yourself, nothing else
Who could ask for any more
And you know, they all love you
What is more, I really do

CHORUS

[double guitar solo (Pete Ham & Joey Molland)]

So come on, they all love you
What is more, I really do.

Dennis lyrics - badfinger

Deeper waters flowed
Recently it showed
Tryin' to cover your head
Tryin' to frighten you
Tryin' to fight with you
Really gettin' you scared
But don't you worry, you love of mine
Pretty soon it will all be fine
And we'll just go on

Higher hills to climb
Climbin' all the time
Tryin' to find a way through
Fallin' down again, on the ground again
Wonderin' what you can do
But don't you worry, you love of ours
They look like weeds, but they're really flowers
And they'll soon be gone

You won't stand up, you won't sit down
Your head's a mile above the ground
And though we tend to scold you now
I couldn't start to tell you how
We couldn't start to tell you how
There's just no way to say how much we love you

You, little Dennis, you
You're full of new surprise
Love you
You, little Dennis with the rascal in your eyes
You're a prize

It could be bad, it could be worse
You're taking out your mother's purse
And though you cried when you got told
The money there was for the old
To keep their dogs from getting cold
The only thing that can't be sold is love

You, little Dennis, you
You're full of new surprise
Love you
You, little Dennis with the rascal in your eyes

Will you pick up your toys?
Will you be a good boy?
Will you please, please?

There's a way
There's a way
If you'll play
If you'll stay
There's a way through
There's a way to take away blue
Take away blue

There's a way
There's a way
If you'll play
If you'll stay
There's a way through
There's a way to take away blue
Take away blue

There's a way
There's a way
If you'll play
If you'll stay
There's a way through
There's a way to...

Lonely You lyrics - badfinger

When I look into your tearful eyes
I don't know what to do
And though you say that I don't realize
I sympathize with you

Lonely you, only you
Yes I do
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you

When I ask you just to be my friend
I want to lend a hand
But if we get too close, it's sure to end
Oh, can't you understand?

Lonely you, only you
Yes it will
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you

We really need a friend
And friends are hard to find
And harder still to keep
Lonely you
Lonely me

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

Lonely you, only you
Yes it will
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you

Lonely you
Lonely you.

Love Time lyrics - badfinger

Every day I look into your eyes
I see a love that's there
I see myself and stare

Loving you so many different ways
A kind of harmony
Another part of me
Makes it harder now

If it's easy to believe it
It's hard to realize
As easy to believe it
As the love that's in your eyes

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

Well if it's easy to believe it
It's hard to realize
As easy to believe it
As the love that's in your eyes

Found amongst the laughter and the tears
Love I had inside
Love I used to hide
Makes it harder now
Harder now.

Meanwhile Back At The Ranch lyrics - badfinger

Why do you think me so hard to get?
Is there something they might regret?
Is it better to just forget, just forget?

If they only would let us know
Then we'd know just how far to go
But instead they just tell us "no", tell us "no"

You, you always played the fool (you always played the fool)
You always break the rule
At every single school you know (you always break the rule)
It always pulled you down
They could always pull you down

You, you never stayed the same (you never stayed the same)
And now you take the blame
For all the little games they play (you always take the blame)
And let it bring you down
Why'd you let it bring you down?

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

Why do you think me so hard to get?
Is there something they might regret?
Is it better to just forget, just forget?

If they only would let us know
Then we'd know just how far to go
But instead they just tell us "no", tell us "no"

You, you never stayed the same (you never stayed the same)
And now you take the blame
For all the little games they play (you always take the blame)
And let it bring you down
Why'd you let it bring you down?

Should I Smoke lyrics - badfinger

Should I smoke or should I die?
Somebody must tell me why
Should I laugh, should I cry
Won't somebody help me?

Don't know what to say
You're makin' me better
I've learned how to pray
Change in the weather today
Don't know what to do
Just makes it hard to lose

The day passes by
Nobody listens
And nobody cries
For anyone's mission today
Don't know what to do
Just makes it hard to choose

Should I smoke or should I die?
Somebody must tell me why
Should I laugh, should I cry
Won't somebody help me?

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)].

Day After Day (1990)

Sometimes lyrics - badfinger

Sometimes, I'm only waiting for your smile
Sometimes, I'll only wait a while
Sometimes, a feeling makes me wanna cry
Tell me why

Sometimes, I'm fooling, playing for my time
Sometimes, the days are always fine
Sometimes, a cloudburst puts me out of line
It's a crime

CHORUS:
There's always tomorrow, the end of your sorrow and pain
(Oo pain, sorrow and pain)
(Oo pain, sorrow and pain)
There's always a reason you always believed in my soul (in my soul)

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

CHORUS

Yeah
REPEAT VERSE 1

Gotta find out why (find out why)
Tell me why
Find out why.

I Don't Mind lyrics - badfinger

Birds sing and doorbells ring in answer
People say it's a lovely day outside
I don't mind, I've got my way of living
Even if it's only for the ride

I don't mind if people find me lazy
I could say it's only for the fun
Step inside and see if I can make you
After all it's only just begun

You don't know me, what's on my mind
You can't show me what I can't find

Days, nights, alright, it's easy
Breaking time and making rhymes for you
I don't mind, I've got my way of giving
Even if it's all I ever do

[piano solo (Pete Ham)]

Step inside and see if I can make you
Even if it's only for the ride

You don't know me, what's on my mind
You can't show me what I can't find.

Blind Owl lyrics - badfinger

Lies, ties, Mr. Cool disguise
Hang it up, get up on your own
Pill driven skills, weeping whippoorwills
Too much going 'round that you can't hide

CHORUS:
Look out for the blind owl
You can only find that you were wrong
No one else around me ever loved me like you do
So I'll be strong

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

CHORUS

Days, plays, interviewer's maze
Play the role, sell your soul
Becoming to yourself
A hero who must never lie

Who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie

[wah-wah guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

Give It Up lyrics - badfinger

Live in hope of love and wait to die
Sadness all around us makes for crying
Feelings that once meant so much
Are left to dry and turn to dust, and ashes

We learn to wheel and deal and say goodbye
Madness all around us makes for dyin'
Young deceivers soon turn old
Are left to die amongst their gold and cashes

Give it up
Or we'll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time
Give it up, your saviour's in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)

We drive a million miles to see the sun
Hoping we are not too late for saving
The Lord will smile on you today
Give you love that you can trade
For matches, TVs, and movie stars
And driving cars is catching

Give it up
Or we'll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time (give it up)
Give it up, your saviour's in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]:
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up).

Constitution lyrics - badfinger

I could sing the blues any way I choose, if I wanted
I could turn you around, I could bring you down, if I wanted

But it's not my constitution, it's not my way of life
You know, I'm just a lover for my wife

I could join a race, I could paint my face, if I wanted
I could be a queen, but it's not my scene 'cause I've tried it

And it's not my constitution, it's not my way of life
You know, I'm just a lover for my wife
Hey, yea

[wah-wah guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

I could sing the blues any way I choose, if I wanted
I could bring you down, I could turn you around, if I wanted

But it's not my constitution, it's not my way of life
You know, I'm just a lover for my life
Hey, yea

[wah-wah guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

Baby Blue lyrics - badfinger

Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long, my love
All that time without a word
Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget or I'd regret
The special love I had for you, my baby blue

All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize that I would know
I would show the special love I have for you, my baby blue

What can I do, what can I say
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you, show me the way
Don't you know the times I've tried?

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

Guess that's all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day
Just one thing before I go
Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow
The special love you have for me, my Dixie, dear.

Name Of The Game lyrics - badfinger

I saw the railway master and I looked him in the eye
I said, "Would you go much faster if you thought that you would die?"
He said, "Not me sir, I could not care, in fact, I would not try.
For protest would not take me far.
It's different, me not being a star."
I lock my feelings in a jar until another day

Oh, comfort me, dear brother, won't you tell me what you know?
For somewhere in this painful world is a place where I can go
Oh, long awaiting mother, is it time to make a show?
And take your babies to your breast
No, we never passed the test
And all our sins should be confessed before we carry on

CHORUS:
Oh, don't refuse me
If you choose me, you'll follow my shame
No, don't confuse me
For I know it's the name of the game

I got up off my pillow and I looked up at the sun
I said, "You can see quite clearly, now, the things that we have done
We burned your sacred willow and our battles we have won.
But did we get so very far?
It's different, me not being a star."
I lock my feelings in a jar until we go away

CHORUS 2 times.

Day After Day lyrics - badfinger

I remember finding out about you
Every day, my mind is all around you
Looking out from my lonely room, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

I remember holding you while you sleep
Every day, I feel the tears that you weep
Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

[duel slide guitar solo (Pete Ham and George Harrison)]

Looking out of my lonely room, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

I remember finding out about you
Every day, my mind is all around you
Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you.

Timeless lyrics - badfinger

We are yesterday, we are today
We are tomorrow, we are timeless
We are then, we are now
We are the future, we are timeless

We are the sorrow, we are the pain
We are the sunshine, we are rain
We are love, we are hate
We are the future, we are timeless

Whatever we see, wherever we go
Shows perfectly clear how little we know

[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]

How can we look and not even see?
How can we live and not even be free?

We are the comfort, we are the shame
We are forgiveness, we are blame
We are kind, we are kill
Are we the future?

Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?

(Are we timeless, are we)?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
(Are we timeless, are we)?

[extended guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

I Can't Take It lyrics - badfinger

Just give me five so I can step outside
Or even give me three and I'll be satisfied
But if you give me none at all
You're gonna see me climb that wall
And you know you're gonna see me fall
I can't take it

Take all the nights that a man can give
And make all the days so a man can live
But if you take up every hour
You're gonna take up all my power
And you know you're gonna turn me sour
I can't take it, no

CHORUS:
I can't take it, wooo
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it, wooo
Place a lock upon my door

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

Give me all your money in your dark, brown vase
You've even got my soul in your dark, brown case
But baby, can't you see outside?
You know you've got my fingers tied
And you know you're gonna hurt my pride
I can't take it, no

CHORUS 4 times

I can't take it, wooo
I can't take it...

Rock 'N' Roll Contract lyrics - badfinger

Know you can Know you can
Know you can Know you can

Wrapped up in a Rock 'N' Roll Contract
Lots of things I had to sign at the time
Man told me not to worry 'bout the business
Just keep on poppin' those hits

Know you can Know you can
Know you can Know you can

Sat down in my pyramid mansion
Old Martin seems to know all the chords
Tired of beggin', I can make it without them
Played the blues so I wouldn­t get bored

You made me your slave. Whatever God gave me
You took to the grave, now it­s gone
I gave you my heart. Whatever God gave me
You took to the grave, now it­s gone
Yeah, it­s gone
Gone

Smokin', chokin', drinkin', sinkin', falling over
Cokin', flyin', speedin', dyin', roll me over
Roll me over (wrapped up in a Rock 'N' Roll Contract)
Roll me over (wrapped up in a Rock 'N' Roll Contract)

Know you can Know you can
Know you can Know you can

Three Time Loser lyrics - badfinger

It's a terrible thing to lose
All the time you've had and never used
Sometimes you wanna hide
And sometimes you wanna light the fuse

And you know just where you stand
But it's hard to make the plan
When all that you do is wrong
And no one to find a song to play

[Chorus:]
Three time loser
White line user
Mr. Groover
Where's it end?

And there's nothing that you can say
You can make it most any day
And if you try very hard
You know you might find a yard or two

[Chorus]

[keyboard solo (Tony Kaye)]

Sometimes you wanna hide
Sometimes you wanna light the fuse

Three time loser
White line user
Three time loser
White line user (ultimate user)
Three time loser (big street cruiser)
White line user (go little Hoover)
Three time loser (Mr. Humor)
White line user (ooh, city slicker)
Three time loser (cherry picker)
White line user (Mr. "gives a damn")
Three time loser (you're a married man)
White line user (money money money money money money money broker)

Too Hung Up On You lyrics - badfinger

Baby I want you by my side to be forever
Without you I can never face the stormy weather
Am I living this paradise for someone to say it's wrong

No More lyrics - badfinger

Drunken days drunken nights
Someone please turn out the light
I can't face the mirror anymore
Move along magics gone, someone else can sing my song,
I can't lift my head up of the floor

N-n-n-n-n- no no no no more
N-n-n-n-n- no no no no more
N-n-n-n-n- no no no no no no no no more

Empty days sleepless nights
Have I lost the will to fight
Someone help me back onto the road
Sinking fast time has past I can't make the story last
Every little note is coming hard

N-n-n-n-n- no no no no more
N-n-n-n-n- no no no no more
N-n-n-n-n- no no no no no no no no more

There's no use in trying
When you only end up crying
It's a fools game
It's no longer funny when youre doing it for money
It's a shame shame
no no no more no more
No more

N-n-n-n-n- no no no no more
N-n-n-n-n- no no no no more
N-n-n-n-n- no no no no no no no no more

Look Out California lyrics - badfinger

Bags are packed, jumpin' on a jet today
Feel so good 'cause I'm gettin' back to the U.S.A.
Temperature's risin', I'm flyin' back to the sun
Hangin' around old London town
Ain't good for too, too long
CHORUS:
Look out California, I gotta warn ya
Look out solar city
You're lookin' pretty to me, yeah, to me
Feel so good, gettin' back to Rock 'N' Roll
So long since it felt so right to my very soul
My temperature's risin' 'cause I'm layin' back in the sun
Kickin' around old L.A. town
Too much, too much good fun

Got a good deal from a prominent record man
We're tryin' our hardest just to follow the plan

Lost Inside Your Love lyrics - badfinger

What can I say, what can I do?
All of my life I've been a victim of you
What can I say or do?
Lost inside your love
What can it be, who can I see?
All of your life you've been the winner in me
What can I say or do?
Lost inside your love
Is it any wonder there's no reason why?
Is it all because I left it open wide for your pride
To leave me one more time
Are you leaving me one more time?
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
What can I say, what can I do?
All of my life I've been a winner with you
What can I say or do?
Lost inside your love
Lost inside your love
Lost inside your love.

What can it be, who can I see?
All of my life you've been the loser in me
What can I say or do?
I'm lost inside your love
Is it any wonder there's no reason why?
Is it all because I left it open wide for your pride
To lose me once again
Am I losing you once again?
What can I say, what can I do?
All of my life I've been a loser with you
What can I say or do?
I'm lost inside your love
Lost inside your love
Lost inside your love.

Love Is Gonna Come At Last lyrics - badfinger

There are times when it feels so hard just to carry on
There are times when the days all seem to be so long
Then this feeling inside of me sets me free from the past
And I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last
Yes, I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last
Been alone in a crowded room, watched it all go on
I've had so many sleepless nights when I dreamed alone
Then a break in the clouds above feels like love shinin' down
And I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come around
Yes, I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come around
I live for tomorrow, what it may bring
I live through the sorrow
Live in my dreams, in my dreams
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
This feeling inside of me sets me free from the past
And someday I'll find a way to make my dreams come true
'Cause I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last
Yes, I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last
Yes, I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last
Yes, I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last
Yes, I know that when I'm ready, love is gonna come at last.

Sympathy lyrics - badfinger

If you ever wanna cry
If you ever wanna feel blue
I'll be here with some sympathy for you
If you're ever feelin' lonely
If you're ever feelin' down
I'll be here, all you gotta do is come around
If you're lookin' for some sympathy
Baby, you just run to me
If you need a little sympathy
Baby, you just run to me
If you need a little time
And there's no one there to help you through
I'll be here with some sympathy for you
If somebody lets you down to the ground
You can count on me
And if you don't know where to go
So alone, you can run to me

The Winner lyrics - badfinger

You can drive a car, be a movie star
Any day of the week
You don't have to shout or walk about
You just have to speak
Say baby, you just have to speak
You can fly a plane, maybe go insane
Any day that you like
Everyone'll say, "Have you been away?"
Everything is alright
Say baby, everything is alright
CHORUS:
Here he come, that's a winner
Here he come, take a look, write a book
You can eat him up for dinner, yeah
You can run around over stony ground
Or lay in the sand
You don't have to show what you really know
We all understand
Say baby, we all understand

Baby, we all understand
Baby, we all understand
Baby, we all understand

The Dreamer lyrics - badfinger

There was a young man
Watched his life unfold each day
He only wanted to play
He only needed a ray

And then he found out
One rainy afternoon, he'd lost
All he'd earned and was tossed
In the rivers he'd crossed

CHORUS:
And there he came across the dreamer
Who told him life was but a dream
And all that you can see is all that you can be

There was a young love destined to get old someday
Didn't happen that way
They never learned how to say

We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long way to go
But I believe if we let it, our love will grow

[guitar solo (Joe Tansin)]

CHORUS

We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long way to go
We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long way to go
We've got a long, long time between us
We've got a long, long, long way to go
Long way to go
(Long, long time between us)
And I believe if we let it, our love will grow
Our love will grow
Our love will grow.

Come Down Hard lyrics - badfinger

I heard a lover lie, saw a lady cry her heart out
He was on his way, she would have to play the part out
And though he told her what she did was right
He only loved her when the moon was bright
And he was leavin'
She didn't understand, it didn't go the way she planned it
She thought the ties were strong
Then it all went wrong, she landed
She come down hard
[guitar solo (Joe Tansin)]
She was noticing just lately
She had seen a thing or two
Things would get a little shaky
And there was nothin' she could do
She go, "boo hoo hoo"
She looked around the place and there was no one there to save her, oh no
And now her eyes would burn
He would not return, she knew it
And though he told her what she did was right
He only loved her when the moon was bright
And he was leavin'
She come down hard
Leavin'
Leavin' (come down hard)
Leavin' (come down hard)
Leavin', leavin', leavin', leavin', leavin', leavin', leavin', leavin'...

Sail Away lyrics - badfinger

Many's the time I've been troubled in mind
And I've not known where to go
Deeper and darker, no way to believe
Lying and dying, no way to conceive
Making believe it's not true
What in the world can you do?
Sail away, give it all to another day
Sail away, throw it over your shoulder
You may find in your heart
That you've made a new start with a future not so bad
Then you can show all the feelings you know
With a will to carry on, carry on, carry on
Then you can know all the feelings you show
And you'll know just where to go
Deeper and darker's no way to believe
Lying and dying's no way to conceive
Making believe it's not true
What in the world can you do?
Sail away, give it all to another day
Sail away, throw it over your shoulder
You may...
Carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on.

One More Time lyrics - badfinger

Got no time for hurryin'
Got some time to kill
Promises I've never made
I'll be on my way
CHORUS:
Make you feel like laughin'
Feel like cryin'
Feel like tryin' one more time
One more time
Look into this heart of mine
Tell me what you see
Love is there for you to find
Love is what you need
CHORUS
Sometimes, your feelings can take you by surprise
Still, you try one more time
You try one more time
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
CHORUS
Oooooh, oooooh, oooooh, oooooh
[cricket].

Send Me Your Love lyrics - badfinger

There's so much I wanna say to you, but love your so far away
And I don't mind telling you that I miss you more each day
Well I can hide the sadness. You can't see it in my eyes
And I just wish I could be with you tonight
So send me your love, and set this poor heart free
You know the sun won't shine till you come back to me
Well I can't keep pretending. You know I can't go on this way
I've never known a hurt so bad. And it just won't go away
I'm travelling in these teardrops, and I can't put up a fight
And I just wish I could hold you close tonight
So send me your love, or set this poor heart free
You know the sun won't shine till you come back to me
So send me your love, or set this poor heart free
You know the sun won't shine till you come back to me
The sun won't shine till you come back to me.
Send me your love
Send me your love
The sun won't shime till you come back to me

Love Can't Hide lyrics - badfinger

There's a magic in the air
Reach into my soul
Something down inside
Love can't hide
There's a charge come over me
Can never change my mind again
I was lookin' to be free
Love's the key
And in my dreams, she's with me every night
Everything I do for her helps me see right
[piano & guitar solo]
And in my dreams, she's with me every night
Everything I do for her helps me see right
There's a magic in the air
Cast a spell on me
Now, there's nothing to decide
Love can't hide
Love can't hide
Love can't hide.

Can You Feel The Rain lyrics - badfinger

I hear the thunder, I know the rain is falling far. And the river is rising.
Watch these dark clouds come peeking off slow, "above the horizon"
Won't somebody rescue me, from the thunder and the lightning
Baby can you feel it, better believe it. Can you feel the rain fall down
Baby can you feel it ( Baby can you feel it )
Better believe it. Can you feel it the rain fall down
I'm off the tracks like a runaway train. Someone led me off of this line
And I heard Saint Peter calling my name. I got nowhere to hide
"Blinded and numb" and I don't know, how to put out a fire. Yeah
Won't somebody rescue me, from the thunder and the lightning
Baby can you feel it, better believe it. Can you feel the rain fall down
Baby can you feel it ( Baby can you feel it )
Better believe it. Can you feel it the rain fall down
Won't somebody rescue me, from the thunder and the lightning
Baby can you feel it, better believe it. Can you feel the rain fall down
Baby can you feel it ( Baby can you feel it )
Better believe it. Can you feel it the rain fall down
Won't somebody rescue me, from the thunder and the lightning
Baby can you feel it, better believe it. Can you feel the rain fall down
Baby can you feel it ( Baby can you feel it )
Better believe it. Can you feel it the rain fall down

Wish You Were Here (1974)

Just A Chance lyrics - badfinger

Doesn't matter what you think I do
All I wanna do is see it through
You may say it's not a great romance
But all I want from you is just a chance to try
Any way at all
Don't you think we know it has to hurt
Are minds that small?
I won't tell you if it's short or long
All I know is that it don't feel wrong
You may say it's not a great romance
But all we want from you is just a chance to try
Any way we can
Don't you think we know it has to hurt
Won't you understand?
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
Doesn't matter what you think I do
All I wanna do is see it through
You may say it's not a great romance
But all I want from you is just a chance to try
Any way we can
Don't you think we know it has to hurt
Won't you understand?
Ooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh
Ooooooh.

Your So Fine lyrics - badfinger

Let me see your face
Let me see you smile
None can measure your love in miles
Only you can comfort me
You're so fine
You can take me up
You can bring me down
Put my feet back on the ground
Since you got a hold on me, I'm alive
I'm alive
Builds around me fences
Put my back against the wall
You broke into my world and made me crawl
Broken my defenses
Made me want you more and more
Came into my life
I asked for more, more and more
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
Can't get enough
Enough of your love
I've learned my lesson well
Now it's good enough
Maybe someday the world will come
I'm alive
I'm alive
Builds around me fences
Put my back against the wall
You broke into my world and made me crawl
Broken my defenses
Made me want you more and more
You came into my life
I asked for more, more and more.

Got To Get Out Of Here lyrics - badfinger

Gotta get outta here
A man who feels the space begins to need the wall
Gotta be others near
Maybe someone fills the space behind the fault
Maybe not at all
Maybe not at all
Baby, a man gets wise
To running 'round in circles
He ain't got no choice
Only the fool survives
Running 'round in circles
Trying to make some noise
Got no choice
He's got no choice
Well, I learned to live without face
Learned to feed my soul
I can learn the chords to right place
Hang onto my own
[keyboard solo]
I gotta find a place
See and dream
Who knows which way the dice will fall
I got a mind to face
But maybe I can find my place behind the wall
Maybe not at all
Maybe not at all
Well, I gotta get out of here
Gotta be others near
I gotta find a place
Somewhere without a race
I gotta know it all
Don't wanna be alone
Somewhere I wanna be
Something I really see
Gotta get out of here
Gotta get out of here
Gotta get out of here.

Know One Knows lyrics - badfinger

No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When I see you glow
No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it show
Keep it coming, keep it long
Caress me with your body song
Reach it higher with each sigh
Knowing soon that we will fly
No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When I see you glow
No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it flow
Keep it moving, keep it bright
And guide me with your body light
Come in closer with each sigh
Knowing soon that we will fly
[Mika's Japanese cooing over guitar solo (Pete Ham):
No one knows
No one knows
No one knows
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it show
No one knows
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it flow.]
Keep on feeling, keep it whole
And lead me with your body soul
Take me higher with each sigh
Knowing you can make me fly
No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When I see you glow.

Dennis lyrics - badfinger

Deeper waters flowed
Recently it showed
Tryin' to cover your head
Tryin' to frighten you
Tryin' to fight with you
Really gettin' you scared
But don't you worry, you love of mine
Pretty soon it will all be fine
And we'll just go on
Higher hills to climb
Climbin' all the time
Tryin' to find a way through
Fallin' down again, on the ground again
Wonderin' what you can do
But don't you worry, you love of ours
They look like weeds, but they're really flowers
And they'll soon be gone
You won't stand up, you won't sit down
Your head's a mile above the ground
And though we tend to scold you now
I couldn't start to tell you how
We couldn't start to tell you how
There's just no way to say how much we love you
You, little Dennis, you
You're full of new surprise
Love you
You, little Dennis with the rascal in your eyes
You're a prize
It could be bad, it could be worse
You're taking out your mother's purse
And though you cried when you got told
The money there was for the old
To keep their dogs from getting cold
The only thing that can't be sold is love
You, little Dennis, you
You're full of new surprise
Love you
You, little Dennis with the rascal in your eyes
Will you pick up your toys?
Will you be a good boy?
Will you please, please?
There's a way
There's a way
If you'll play
If you'll stay
There's a way through
There's a way to take away blue
Take away blue
There's a way
There's a way
If you'll play
If you'll stay
There's a way through
There's a way to take away blue
Take away blue
There's a way
There's a way
If you'll play
If you'll stay
There's a way through
There's a way to...

In The Meantime/Some Other Time lyrics - badfinger

I can remember
Knowing you better some other time (low song)
I can remember
Being in love with a friend of mine
I've seen it before, now
It's always the same
Nothing can change any part
I know what you're doin'
I think it's a shame
I'm gonna have to make a new start
I can remember some other time
I could believe in, love has a reason for holdin' on (hold on)
I can remember being together and feeling strong
But somehow we lost it, drifted apart
It really took a piece of my heart
I've done it before now
It's always the same
I'm gonna have to make a new start
I can remember some other time
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
I've seen it before now
It's always the same
Nothing can change any part
I know what you're doin'
I think it's a shame
I'm gonna have to make a new start
I can remember some other time
I can remember some other time.

Love Time lyrics - badfinger

Every day I look into your eyes
I see a love that's there
I see myself and stare
Loving you so many different ways
A kind of harmony
Another part of me
Makes it harder now
If it's easy to believe it
It's hard to realize
As easy to believe it
As the love that's in your eyes
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
Well if it's easy to believe it
It's hard to realize
As easy to believe it
As the love that's in your eyes
Found amongst the laughter and the tears
Love I had inside
Love I used to hide
Makes it harder now
Harder now.

Kind Of The Load lyrics - badfinger

He's the king of the road
The old man, the child
The joker runnin' wild, makin' it funny
He's of no fixed abode
When he carries the load
He'll do anything he can to make it funny
But he'll never say die
If he's livin' a lie
Pick up his hat and go
If there's reason to cry
He'll just make it a sigh
And wander on down the road
He's a natural friend
With the money to lend
Or whatever it takes to turn you on, too
He's the father, the son
He don't owe anyone
All his debts are all paid
With his confection
Then he'll wander away
With no time in his way
Pick up his hat and go
He'll never say die
If he's livin' a lie
Just wander on down the road
Wander on down the road
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
And he'll wander away
With no time in his way
Pick up his hat and go
He never said die
He was livin' a lie
Just wandered on down the road
Wandered on down the road
Wandered on down the road
Ahhhhh
Mmmmmmmmm
Ahhhhh.

Meanwhile Back At The Ranch lyrics - badfinger

Why do you think me so hard to get?
Is there something they might regret?
Is it better to just forget, just forget?
If they only would let us know
Then we'd know just how far to go
But instead they just tell us "no", tell us "no"
You, you always played the fool (you always played the fool)
You always break the rule
At every single school you know (you always break the rule)
It always pulled you down
They could always pull you down
You, you never stayed the same (you never stayed the same)
And now you take the blame
For all the little games they play (you always take the blame)
And let it bring you down
Why'd you let it bring you down?
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
Why do you think me so hard to get?
Is there something they might regret?
Is it better to just forget, just forget?
If they only would let us know
Then we'd know just how far to go
But instead they just tell us "no", tell us "no"
You, you never stayed the same (you never stayed the same)
And now you take the blame
For all the little games they play (you always take the blame)
And let it bring you down
Why'd you let it bring you down?

Should I Smoke lyrics - badfinger

Should I smoke or should I die?
Somebody must tell me why
Should I laugh, should I cry
Won't somebody help me?
Don't know what to say
You're makin' me better
I've learned how to pray
Change in the weather today
Don't know what to do
Just makes it hard to lose
The day passes by
Nobody listens
And nobody cries
For anyone's mission today
Don't know what to do
Just makes it hard to choose
Should I smoke or should I die?
Somebody must tell me why
Should I laugh, should I cry
Won't somebody help me?
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)].

Badfinger (1974)

I Miss You lyrics - badfinger

Though you've been gone for just a week
It makes me feel so sad to speak
Lady come back
I miss you
And though before I didn't cry
Now my eyes are never dry
And a thousand jesters couldn't make me smile
I miss you
I miss you
And now I know that I was wrong
But it's too late, for now you've gone
Lady come back
I miss you
And though our times were good and bad
Now you're gone, I'm always sad
And a thousand jesters couldn't make me smile
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you.

Shine On lyrics - badfinger

Shine on, shine on me
All I know is now I want you close to me
I can't really tell you what the future's gonna be
Just for now, little lady, shine on me
Lean on, lean on me
Something tells me that's the way it's gotta be
I can't really show you what the future's gonna be
Just for now, little lady, lean on me
To fall in love with love was maybe, just a fantasy
And promises we made could be insane
Don't think of tomorrow, yesterday is past
And if you could, you know we could make it last
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
Drink on, drink on me
Slip and slide so I'll forget reality
I can't really say if I'll come on and get so free
Just for now, little lady, drink on me
To fall in love with love was maybe, just a fantasy
And promises we made could be insane
Don't think of tomorrow, yesterday is past
And if you could, you know we could make it last
Shine on, shine on me
All I know is now I want you close to me
I can't really tell you what the future's gonna be
Just for now, little lady, shine on me
Just for now, little lady, shine on me
Just for now, little lady, shine on me.

Love Is Easy lyrics - badfinger

All I needed was your smile
Sayin' it alright, I don't mind
All I wanted was my chance
Baby, I could learn to dance
Well, love is easy, love is strange
Different people, different games
People, people, love a lot
Feel the love inside your heart
Love is easy, easy
When you've opened up your heart
Love is easy, easy
When you know you'll never part
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
Well, love is easy, love is strange
Different people, different games
People, people, love a lot
Feel the love inside your heart
Love is, love is easy, said easy
When you've opened up your heart
Easy, easy
When you know you'll never part
I said easy, c'mon easy
When you've opened up your heart
Yeah easy, easy
When you know you'll never part
Said easy, easy
When you know you're not alone
Easy, easy
[scat singing].

Song For A Lost Friend lyrics - badfinger

You had a dream
You know you dreamt so much
You had a dream
You know it meant so much
You're just a victim of the circumstance
I mean, what else could you do?
You saw your dream and you just took a chance
And for a while your dream came true
What could you do?
You had a goal
You know you aimed so high
You had soul
You knew you had to try
You're just a victim of the time of day
No matter what you say or do
You saw your dream and you just took a play
And for a while your dream came true
What could you do?
What could you do?
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
You're just a victim of the circumstance
I mean, what else could you do?
You saw your dream and you just took a chance
And for a while your dream came true
What could you do?
What could you do?
What could you do?
What could you do?
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Why Don't We Talk? lyrics - badfinger

(Why don't we talk?)
Why don't we talk about it? (Why don't we talk?)
Why don't we talk about it?
(Why don't we, why don't we, why don't we?)
If you knew the way it feels
I know you'd try a little harder
We've been together now for too long to part
Why don't we try (Why don't we try?)
Why don't we try (Why don't we try?)
Why don't we try (Why don't we, why don't we try?)
Just the one more time
If you could understand the way it is
Then we could talk about the difference between us
But who knows, baby, we might still agree
Why don't we talk about it? (Why don't we talk?)
Why don't we talk about it? (Why not eat pork?)
Why don't we talk about it? (Why don't we, why don't we talk?)
Just the one more time
[guitar solo (Pete Ham and Joey Molland)]
Who knows, baby, we might still agree
Why don't we talk about it? (Why don't we talk?)
Why don't we talk about it? (Why don't we talk?)
Why don't we talk about it?
(Why don't we, why don't we, why don't we talk?)
(Why don't we talk?)
(Why don't we, why don't we, why don't we talk?).

Island lyrics - badfinger

When I love you, do you feel it?
I know it makes you happy when I say "alright"
When I love you, do you feel it?
When I hold you, we're an island
You know it makes me happy when you say "alright"
When I hold you, we're an island
I know the road's a hard one
But it's easy when you're not alone
So help me to remember, please
Lady, I believe we'll get home
When I love you, do you feel it?
You know it makes me happy when you say "alright"
When I love you, do you feel it?
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
I know the road's a hard one
But it's easy when you're not alone
So help me to remember, please
Lady, I believe we'll get home
When I love you, do you feel it?
You know it makes me happy when you say "alright"
When I love you, we're an island
I know the road's a hard road
But it's easy when you're not alone
Help me to remember
Lady, I believe we'll make it home, get home
[jam (Joey Molland)].

Matted Spam lyrics - badfinger

I feel a change comin' on
A frame of mind that's held me down for too long
Tried to imprison my soul
Locked me outside of my own Rock 'N' Roll
Can you feel it?
Oh yeah
Can you feel the change?
It's coming
Feel it, oh yeah
Feel the change, it's coming my way, yeah
I see a light from a night
A distant star, but it's shining so bright
Guiding me out of myself
This new found love has got me under its spell
Can you see it?
Oh yeah
Can you see the light?
It's coming
Can you see it?
Oh yeah
Can you see the light?
It's coming today
For years and years, I've waited so long
I almost lost control
The days and nights all seemed to be wrong
Without you, little Miss Rock 'N' Roll
You know I tell you no lie
My little lady lift me up to the sky
She put the stomp on my blues
She blow the dust off my old blue suede shoes
Feel it, oh yeah
Can you feel the change?
It's coming
Can you feel it?
Yeah
Can you feel the change?
It's coming my way, yeah
[sax solo]
VERSE 1
Can you feel it?
Oh yeah
Can you feel the change?
It's coming
Can you feel it?
Yeah
Can you feel the change?
It's coming today
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Can't feel it
Can you feel the light?
Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?

Where Do We Go From Here? lyrics - badfinger

Someone gives you their heart
But you still throw it all away
Knowing the past is a part
Part of what you are today
We all know you had your troubles
We all know you had your days
What is love?
You can throw it all away
With the helplessness of your pride
Telling yourself you're a loser
Like someone winning who's not
Telling yourself you're a loser
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Someone showed you the way
That you'll be ready to see
That the game had been played
Losers had lost and the winners were free
We all know you have your troubles
We all know you have your ways
What is love?
You can throw it all away
With the helplessness of your pride
Telling yourself you're a loser
Like someone winning who's not
Telling yourself you're a loser
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
[steel drum solo]
We all know you have your troubles
We all know you have your days
What is love?
You can throw it all away
With the helplessness of your pride
Telling yourself you're a loser
Like someone winning who's not
Telling yourself you're a loser
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?

My Heart Goes Out lyrics - badfinger

I wanna tell you how much I need you now
I wanna show you what love can do
Can you take me like I am?
Loving you now can be sad
I can remember times we have had
And for you now, my heart goes out, once again
You turn me down, I wonder why
You turn away with sunken eyes
I see nothing but the best
I imagine all the rest coming true
I wanna touch you, I wanna be with you now
I wanna show you what love can do
I can take you like a man
Loving you now can be sad
I can remember times we have had
But for you now, my heart goes out, once again
You turn me down, I wonder why
You turn away with sunken eyes
I see nothing but the best
I imagine all the rest coming true
For you now, my heart goes out
For you now, my heart goes out, once again.

Lonely You lyrics - badfinger

When I look into your tearful eyes
I don't know what to do
And though you say that I don't realize
I sympathize with you
Lonely you, only you
Yes I do
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you
When I ask you just to be my friend
I want to lend a hand
But if we get too close, it's sure to end
Oh, can't you understand?
Lonely you, only you
Yes it will
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you
We really need a friend
And friends are hard to find
And harder still to keep
Lonely you
Lonely me
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
Lonely you, only you
Yes it will
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you
Lonely you
Lonely you.

Give It Up lyrics - badfinger

Live in hope of love and wait to die
Sadness all around us makes for crying
Feelings that once meant so much
Are left to dry and turn to dust, and ashes
We learn to wheel and deal and say goodbye
Madness all around us makes for dyin'
Young deceivers soon turn old
Are left to die amongst their gold and cashes
Give it up
Or we'll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time
Give it up, your saviour's in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
We drive a million miles to see the sun
Hoping we are not too late for saving
The Lord will smile on you today
Give you love that you can trade
For matches, TVs, and movie stars
And driving cars is catching
Give it up
Or we'll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time (give it up)
Give it up, your saviour's in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]:
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up).

Andy Norris lyrics - badfinger

Run out of money
Run outta good
Run outta reasons and misunderstood
Run out of rhythm
Run out of rhyme
Right out of feelings and right out of time
Living in limbo, hanging around
Head on the ceiling and mind in the clouds
Blind is the morning and deaf is the night
Comes without warning and leaves me in fright
Saving all my money, yeah, for the rainy days
I'm packin' up my suitcase, make it pay
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
Run out of patience
And run out of lies
Run out of spaces and nowhere to hide
Living and loving is easy to get
Living is something we haven't tried yet
Yeah, I've been saving all my money, yeah, for the rainy days
Well, I'm packin' up my suitcase, make it pay
Hey
[double guitar solo (Joey Molland & Pete Ham)]
I run out of money
Run out of good
Run out of reasons and misunderstood
Run out of rhythm
Run out of rhyme
Right out of feelings and right out of time
Blind is the morning and deaf is the night
Comes without warning and leaves me in fright
I've been saving all my money, yeah, for the rainy days
I'm packin' up my suitcase, make it pay.

Ass (1973)

Apple Of My Eye lyrics - badfinger

Oh, I'm sorry, but it's time to move away
Though inside my heart, I really want to stay
Believe the love we have is so sincere
You know, the gift you have will always be
CHORUS:
You're the apple of my eye
You're the apple of my heart
But now, the time has come to part
Oh, I'm sorry, but it's time to make a stand
Though we never meant to bite the lovin' hand
And now, the time has come to walk alone
We were the children, now we've overgrown
CHORUS
[guitar solo]
REPEAT VERSE 1
CHORUS
Now, the time has come to part
Now, the time has come to part.

Get Away lyrics - badfinger

Well, I may be wrong leaving it up to you
But my love is strong, and that's what I'll do
Well, you may be right working all night and day
And I know, sometimes, I've got to get away
Get away, oo-oo-way
The walls are getting closer
People trying to freeze my soul
The times are getting harder, only wanna Rock 'N' Roll
Too much sittin', thinkin' what we're gonna say
And I know, sometimes, I've got to get away
Get away, oo-oo-way
I may be wrong, babe, leaving you this way
I must be strong, babe, leaving you today
Well come on, hey hey
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
Get away, oo-oo-way
I may be wrong, babe, leaving you this way
I must be strong, babe, I'm leaving you today
Well, you may be right working all night and day (gotta move, get away)
But I know, sometimes, I've got to get away
Get away (gotta move, get away)
Oo-oo-way (gotta move, get away)
Get away (gotta move, get away)
Oo-way (gotta move, gotta move)
Get away (gotta move, get away)
Yeah, way (gotta move, get away)
I said, way (gotta move, get away)
Get away, alright! (gotta move, gotta move)
Right! (Gotta move, gotta move)
Get away (gotta move, gotta move)
Get away (gotta move, gotta move)
Alright! (gotta move, gotta move)
(Gotta move, get away)
Get away! (gotta move, get away)
Get away (gotta move, get away)
Get away (gotta move, gotta move)
(Gotta move, gotta move).

Icicles lyrics - badfinger

Isn't it nice when the rain comes falling
Turns into icicles, melting, mourning
Isn't it good when a friend comes calling 'round?
Isn't it good when you need somebody
People will help you not be lonely
Then you find someone who loves ya, only you
CHORUS:
But never take a love for granted
Give a little in return
Try to be understanding, live and learn
Isn't it good when the sun comes shining
Giving us warmth, see the children smiling
Just the reflections of love around their heart
Oh-o-o, just a start
[duel guitar solo [Pete Ham & Joey Molland]
CHORUS
REPEAT VERSE 3
Oh-o-o, just a start
Just a start, just a start.

The Winner lyrics - badfinger

You can drive a car, be a movie star
Any day of the week
You don't have to shout or walk about
You just have to speak
Say baby, you just have to speak
You can fly a plane, maybe go insane
Any day that you like
Everyone'll say, "Have you been away?"
Everything is alright
Say baby, everything is alright
CHORUS:
Here he come, that's a winner
Here he come, take a look, write a book
You can eat him up for dinner, yeah
You can run around over stony ground
Or lay in the sand
You don't have to show what you really know
We all understand
Say baby, we all understand
[guitar solo (Pete Ham, then Joey Molland)]
REPEAT VERSE 1
CHORUS
Baby, we all understand
Baby, we all understand
Baby, we all understand
(Yeah, we all understand) [7 times].

Blind Owl lyrics - badfinger

Lies, ties, Mr. Cool disguise
Hang it up, get up on your own
Pill driven skills, weeping whippoorwills
Too much going 'round that you can't hide
CHORUS:
Look out for the blind owl
You can only find that you were wrong
No one else around me ever loved me like you do
So I'll be strong
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
CHORUS
Days, plays, interviewer's maze
Play the role, sell your soul
Becoming to yourself
A hero who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie
Who must never lie
[wah-wah guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

Constitution lyrics - badfinger

I could sing the blues any way I choose, if I wanted
I could turn you around, I could bring you down, if I wanted
But it's not my constitution, it's not my way of life
You know, I'm just a lover for my wife
I could join a race, I could paint my face, if I wanted
I could be a queen, but it's not my scene 'cause I've tried it
And it's not my constitution, it's not my way of life
You know, I'm just a lover for my wife
Hey, yea
[wah-wah guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
I could sing the blues any way I choose, if I wanted
I could bring you down, I could turn you around, if I wanted
But it's not my constitution, it's not my way of life
You know, I'm just a lover for my life
Hey, yea
[wah-wah guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

When I Say lyrics - badfinger

What you are is what I see
What I see is what I want it to be
When I say I love you
What I mean is I really do
CHORUS:
I'm not the one who'll give you everything you need
But what I mean is that I'll try
I can't deny that I've been burning inside
For all the things I'll never see
So come on, be yourself, nothing else
Who could ask for any more
And you know, they all love you
What is more, I really do
CHORUS
[double guitar solo (Pete Ham & Joey Molland)]
So come on, they all love you
What is more, I really do.

Cowboy lyrics - badfinger

Hey cowboy, I dig your blues
You must have had a heavy day
Hey cowboy, I dig your shoes
I know they're walking heavenly ways
CHORUS:
Now, I know you well enough to say, "yeah"
Yeah, yeah, to say, "yeah"
Hey soldier, it's up to you
To see you make it home today
CHORUS
[country guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
Tommy's dialogue during solo:
"____ all his teeth
Well, take your partners and dosey doh
Be like me, and see how it goes"
CHORUS.

I Can Love You lyrics - badfinger

I can love you without askin' why
Seeing all that's in your eyes
Knowing there's no alibi
If I made you cry
I can see you like a morning sun
Feel you and I'm holding on
Knowing that I'm not alone
Want to take you home
CHORUS:
And all of the flowers
Seem to wither in their beds and say, "goodnight"
And all of the hours
Seem to clean away the bad and make it right
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
CHORUS 2 times.

Timeless lyrics - badfinger

We are yesterday, we are today
We are tomorrow, we are timeless
We are then, we are now
We are the future, we are timeless
We are the sorrow, we are the pain
We are the sunshine, we are rain
We are love, we are hate
We are the future, we are timeless
Whatever we see, wherever we go
Shows perfectly clear how little we know
[guitar solo (Pete Ham)]
How can we look and not even see?
How can we live and not even be free?
We are the comfort, we are the shame
We are forgiveness, we are blame
We are kind, we are kill
Are we the future?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
(Are we timeless, are we)?
Are we timeless (are we timeless, are we)?
(Are we timeless, are we)?
[extended guitar solo (Pete Ham)].

Do You Mind? lyrics - badfinger

Do you mind if I call you my friend
Just to say that our love will not end?
Do you mind?
Do you worry sometimes?
Do you find that you hurry sometimes?
Do you mind when I don't understand
All the problems that come with your hand?
Do you mind?
Do you worry sometimes?
Do you find that you hurry sometimes?
Or will you be leaving sooner than you thought?
Or will you stay longer?
[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]
Or will you be leaving sooner than you thought?
Or will you stay longer?
Do you mind if I call you my friend
Just to say that our love will not end?
Do you mind?
Do you worry sometimes?
Do you find that you hurry sometimes?
