Some love is just a lie of the heart,
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start.
And they may not want it to end,
But it will, it's just a question of when.
Well, we’re living here in Allentown
And they’re closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem they’re killing time
Filling out forms
Standing in line
Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by
In every heart, there is a room,
A sanctuary safe and strong.
To heal the wounds of lovers pasts
Until a new one comes along.
Well, you went uptown riding in your limousine
With your fine Park Avenue clothes.
You had the Dom Perignon in your hand
And a spoon up your nose.
She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes.
And she can ruin your faith with her casual lies.
And she only reveals what she wants you to see.
Saturday night and you're still hangin' around
You're tired of livin' in your one horse town
You'd like to find a little hole in the ground
For a while...
Let me tell you a story
About a woman and a man
Mabye you will find familiar
Maybe you won't understand
All the waiters in your grand cafe
Leave their tables when you blink, oohh
Every dog must have his every day
Every drunk must have his drink
Well I'm on the Downeaster "Alexa"
And I'm cruising through Block Island Sound
I have charted a course to the Vineyard
But tonight I am Nantucket bound
Woohoohoohoo for the longest time
woohoohoo for the longest time
We met as soul mates
On Parris Islands
We left as inmates
From an asylum
And we were sharp
As sharp as knives
And we were so gung ho
If you search for tenderness
It isn't hard to find
You can have the love you need to live
But if you look for truthfulness
You might just as well be blind
Call me a joker, call me a fool
Right at this moment I´m totally cool
Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife
I feel like I´m in the prime of my life
What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?
"Can't you tell that your tie's too wide?"
Maybe I should buy some old tab collars?
"Welcome back to the age of jive.
Don't go changing, to try and please me,
You never let me down before,
Don't imagine, you're too familiar,
And I don't see you anymore.
If it seems like I've been lost
In let's remember
If you think I'm feeling older
And missing my younger days
Oh, then you should have known
Me much better
Viktor was born in the spring of ´44
And never saw his father anymore
A child of sacrifice, a child of war
Another son who never had a father after Leningrad
All come from somewhere
To live in sunshine
Their funky exile
High-heeled and faded
Driving sleek new sports cars
Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes,
And save these questions for another day.
I think I know what you've been asking me,
Anthony works in the grocery store
Saving his pennies for someday.
Momma Leoni left a note on the door.
She said, "Sonny, move out to the country.
Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood
But I'm talking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
Come out, Virginia. Don't let me wait.
You Catholic girls start much too late,
But sooner or later, it comes down to fate.
I might as well be the one.
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin
You have to learn to pace yourself
You're just like everybody else
You're only had to run so far
But you will come to a place
Bobby's driving through the city tonight
Through the lights in a hot new rent-a-car
He joins the lovers in his heavy machine
It's a scene down on Sunset Boulevard
Girl I'm shameless
When it comes to loving you
I'd do anything you want me to
I'd do anything at all
She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She's got a way about her
I don't know what it is
But I know that I can't live without her
She's got a way of pleasin'
I don't know why it is
I didn't want to do it but I got too lonely
I had to call you up in the middle of the night
I know it's awful hard to try to make love long distance
They say that these are not the best of times
But they’re the only times I’ve ever known
And I believe there is a time for meditation
In cathedrals of our own
Don't want to see you let a good thing
You know I don't like watching
Anybody make the same mistakes
From a town known as Wheeling, West Virginia
Rode a boy with a six-gun in his hand
And his daring life of crime
Made him a legend in his time
I am the entertainer, and I know just where I stand,
Another serenader and another long-haired band
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
To the river so deep
I must be looking for something
Something sacred I lost
Well we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out and show ourselves
When everyone has gone
Some are satin, some are steel
When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love
She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she's never had a backstreet guy
I bet her momma never told her why
Slow down, you crazy child.
You're so ambitious for a juvenile.
But then if you're so smart, tell me why are you still soafraid?
Where's the fire? What's the hurry about?
Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnnie Ray
South Pacific, Walter Winchell, Joe Dimaggio
Friday night I crashed your party
Saturday I said I'm sorry
Sunday came and trashed me out again
I was only having fun
Wasn't hurting anyone
