    Leave It All to Me
    Album: Shouts Across The Street. Posted by hollyh


    Life extracts its toll all right
    We all feel lonely, now ain't that right
    So darlin' don't forget to call
    'Cos you can leave it all to me.

    Everyone can make mistakes
    Some people give and some people take
    So when it's bad, for goodness sake
    You can leave it all to me

    Do you ever wonder if I'm still in love with you
    Just take a look at my face
    And you'll see what I'm going through

    Let your problems disappear
    You won't feel them
    Never fear
    So if in doubt
    Give me a shout
    And you can leave it all to me

    Ah, now do you ever wonder if I'm still in love with you
    Just take a look at my face
    And you'll see that my feeling's true

    We all feel lonely, now ain't that right
    So darlin' don't forget to call
    'Cos you can leave it all to me.

    Left Over People
    Album: Between Today And Yesterday. Posted by hollyh

    I'm asking you to give us time
    And listen to this tale
    With particular regard for folks whose lives are for sale
    You've heard no doubt of places where you sweat and work for pence
    And the peculiar faith of those you'd think would have more common sense

    Left over people, how will they cope
    Living on dreams, hoping on hope
    Left over people, down on their luck
    All that they know is that living is tough

    So now we'll show how lives are lived
    By those without reprieve
    And watch us closely, closer now
    To see is to believe
    Watch their faces closely as they wend their weary way
    They're carrying tired hearts and minds that can think only of today

    Left over people, how will they cope
    Living on dreams, hoping on hope
    Left over people, down on their luck
    All that they know is that living is tough

    All the left over people
    Ah, left over people

    Left over people, how will they cope
    Living on dreams, hoping on hope
    Left over people, down on their luck
    All that they know is that living is tough

    Let Yourself Go

    by Theodore Thunder/David Rose
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh

    Lovers are bound to quarrel
    On some rainy day
    And should their love be dying
    They're in each other's way
    Words are often spoken
    With such little truth behind them
    So I'm gonna leave the door open
    In case you change your mind

    I can see what you're doing to me
    And I know you want to be free
    Take the time, try to unwind a little bit
    Then you'll find there's nothing to do
    But let yourself go

    It's such a shame that it had to end this way
    'Cos I was really sure that this time it was gonna be right
    Don't hold yourself back
    Open your head wide
    And let the time ride

    'Cos I can see what you're doing to me
    And I know you want to be free
    Take the time and try to unwind a little bit
    Then you'll find there's nothing to do
    But let yourself go

    Understand the meaning of what I'm trying to say
    Our love is on the rocks now, darlin'
    And I just can't stand the pain
    You're drinking all my whiskey
    Just to pass away the time
    You behave as though we're strangers in our world
    And to me that's such a crime

    I can see what's happening to me
    And I know you want to be free
    Inside out, turn me about
    Why don't you underline the things on your mind
    And let yourself go
    Let yourself go
    Let yourself go
    Let yourself go...

    Liberty
    Album: Liberty. Posted by Jean


    When you are at school you are never taught the real thing
    Teachers leave their class and quietly they sing
    Alas experience and all the pain is real
    All men hate their fellow man and here they come
    Over Westminster Bridge they’re running
    In the rooms of the crown when they have discussion
    In the White House the telephone line is humming
    All the oil that they need isn’t forthcoming
    Wise men asleep in their ivory tower
    Yes this fantasy called liberty
    When in reality we’re never free
    That’s the irony of liberty
    When in reality we’re never free

    Back in the school yard they are fighting for their ball
    What started out in fun has ended in a brawl
    The biggest brute begins to put his big boot in
    When they start the fight begins
    And by the left are the troops of St Ivor’s Barracks
    By the right all the barmen are centre targets
    While the men with the gold are forever smiling
    Pretty girls unaware carry on the fighting
    Secret remorse on the dissident mob

    Oh this fantasy called liberty
    When in reality we're never free
    That’s the irony of liberty
    When in reality you lied to me

    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
    If the bomb doesn’t get you
    Then the government must
    They lock away their secrets
    And tell you what they like
    If you say you don’t believe them
    They're very quick to strike
    They say you’re giving bullets
    For the army side to use
    So don't say a word no other excuse

    This fantasy called liberty
    When in reality we're never free
    That’s the irony of liberty
    When in reality you lied to me
    You lied to me
    This fantasy of liberty
    When in reality
    You lied to me

    Life Is Good
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh


    When the long day is over
    And the lights start to shine
    In that magical moment
    When the whole world is mine
    I just think of the wonder
    Of the life that I lead
    And I thank you for giving
    All the love that I need

    You are more than anything I've tried to win
    You have shown me where it all begins
    And it's good to know
    That my nights are aglow
    With the light of your smile
    At least for a while
    Life is good.

    Little Bird
    Album: Based On A True Story. Posted by hollyh


    Your heart is beating like a little bird
    First you want to stay
    Then you fly away
    You find it hard to put it into words
    And commit your heart
    To a brand-new start
    And you feel the cold

    Your heart is beating like a little drum
    When you come to me
    For some sanctuary
    Escaping from a self-made house of cards
    Trying to have it all
    But your obstacle
    Is your sense of truth

    No, the bird can't sing
    And with a broken wing
    She can't fly
    So love, it dies

    Your appetite for love cannot be satisfied
    Feigning compromise
    You don't realize
    The books and films and poems that state the case
    Leave one thing aside --
    That joy is justified
    If it comes from you

    So your days go by
    And the seasons fly
    Only you can make you better
    No, the bird can't sing
    And with a broken wing
    She can't fly
    So love, it dies.

    So your days go by
    And the seasons fly
    Only you can make you better
    And the bird can't sing,
    With her broken wing
    She can't fly,
    So love, it dies.

    Living Without You
    by Randy Newman
    Album: A Price On His Head. Posted by hollyh


    The milk truck hauls the sun up
    And the paper hits the door
    The subway shakes my floor
    And I think about you
    Time to face the dawning gray
    Of another lonely day
    Baby, it's so hard
    Living without you
    It's so hard
    Baby, it's so hard
    Baby, it's so hard
    Living without you

    Ev'ry one's got something
    And they're out tryin' to get some more
    They got something to get up for
    Well I ain't about to
    Nothin's gonna happen
    Nothin's gonna change
    Baby, it's so hard
    Living without you

    It's so hard
    Baby, it's so hard
    Baby, it's so hard
    Living without you

    Look At My Face
    Album: Between Today And Yesterday. Posted by hollyh


    Look at my face
    Does it tell you what you want to know?
    Does it show the deepest secrets there?
    It will clear the air

    Look at my life
    Does it show you what you want to be?
    Can you see the deepest secrets there?
    It will clear the air

    So catch what you can
    Your friends are there
    To show you how and how to care
    Catch what you can, your friends are there
    And I am your friend right now

    Look at my heart
    It truly looks a beaten one
    But it beats on, and the deepest secret's there
    It will clear the air

    So catch what you can
    Your friends are there
    To show you how and how to care
    Catch what you can, your friends are there
    And I am your friend right now

    Look at my face
    Does it tell you what you want to know
    Does it show the deepest secrets there
    It will clear the air

    Look at your life
    Does it show you what you want to be?
    Can't you see, the deepest secret's there
    It will clear the air
    It will clear the air.

    Look Over Your Shoulder
    Album: O Lucky Man. Posted by hollyh

    When there's a bluebird singing by your window pane
    And the sun shines bright all day through
    Don't forget boy
    Look over your shoulder
    'Cause there's always someone coming after you (la la la la)

    When everything in life seems just as it should be
    At last success seems just around the door
    Don't forget boy
    Look over your shoulder
    'Cause things don't stay the same forever more (la la la la)

    Hope springs eternal in a young man's breast
    And he dreams of a better life ahead
    Without that dream you are nothing, nothing, nothing
    You have to find out for yourself that dream is dead (la la la la)

    Dead (la la la la) repeat to fade

    Love Story
    by Randy Newman
    Posted by hollyh

    I like your mother
    And I like your brother
    And I like you
    And you like me too
    You get a preacher
    And I'll get a ring
    We'll hire a band
    With an accordion
    A violin
    And a tenor who can sing

    You and me you and me, babe
    You and me you and me you and me, babe
    You and me you and me you and me, babe
    You and me you and me you and me, babe

    We'll have a kid
    Or maybe we'll rent one
    He's got to be straight
    We don't want a bent one
    He'll drink his baby brew
    From a big brass cup
    Someday he might be prime minister
    If things loosen up

    You and me you and me, babe
    You and me you and me you and me, babe
    You and me you and me you and me, babe
    You and me you and me you and me, babe

    I'll take the train into the city
    Ev'ry mornin'
    You may be plain but I think you're pretty
    In the mornin'
    Some nights we'll go out dancin'
    If I am not too tired
    Some nights we'll spend romancin'
    Watching the Late Show by the fire

    When our kids are grown
    With kids of their own
    They'll send us away
    To a little home in Harrowgate
    We'll play patience all day
    Until we pass away

    Love You True
    Alan Price -1980 (45)

    When you're feeling awful sad
    When you think it's all gone bad
    You know I love you
    I love you true
    I'm the one who really cares
    And if you call me I'll be there
    You know I love you
    I love you true
    And it really doesn't matter
    If this crazy world lets you down
    I can make the whole thing better
    I'll keep your feet right on the ground
    You know I love you
    Baby I love you
    I love you true

    All the things I do and say
    Are meant for you in every way
    You know I love you
    I love you true
    You're the only girl I need
    Yes, you taught me to succeed
    You know I love you
    I love you true
    And it really doesn't matter
    If this crazy world gets you down
    I can make the whole thing better
    I'll keep your feet right on the ground
    You know I love you
    Baby I love you
    I love you true

    And it really doesn't matter
    If this crazy world gets you down
    I will make the whole thing better
    I'll get your feet right on the ground
    You know I love you
    Baby and I love you
    I love you true
    Baby I love you
    Baby I love you
    I love you true.

    Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever
    By Wonder/Hunter
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh


    I remember just before we met
    That every night and day
    I had to live the life of a lonely one
    I remember meeting you
    Discovering love could be so true
    And share my view
    Not the only one

    If you say you love me
    And we could not be parted
    Then I'll build my world around you
    So thankful that I've found you

    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    And I never felt like this before
    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    Yes it has

    Each night I pray we never part
    All the love within my heart
    Grows stronger from day to day
    As best I can, how I try
    To reassure and satisfy
    'Cos I'd be lost if you went away

    'Cos I really need you
    And I need for you to need me too
    I'll build my world around you
    So thankful that I've found you

    'Cos loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    And I never felt like this before
    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    Yes it has

    'Cos I really love you
    I'm so thankful that you love me too
    And I'll build my world around
    And I'm truly glad I've found you

    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    And I never felt like this before
    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    Yes, it has

    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
    And I never felt like this before
    Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever
