In Through the Out Door
In the Evening in the evening - when the day is done i'm looking for a woman - but the girl don't come so don't let her - play you for a fool she don't show no pity baby - she don't make no rules oh, oh, i need your love... i just got to have so don't you let her - oh, get under your skin it's only bad luck and trouble - from the day that you begin i hear you crying in the darkness - don't ask nobody's help ain't no pockets full of mercy, baby - cuz you can only blame yourself oh it's simple - all the pain that you go through you can turn away from fortune - cuz that's all that's left to you it's lonely at the bottom - man, it's dizzy at the top but if you're standing in the middle - ain't no way you're gonna stop oh whatever that your days may bring no use hiding in a corner - cuz that won't change a thing if you're dancing in the doldrums - one day soon, it's got to stop... when you're the master of the off-chance - when you don't expect a lot

Fool In the Rain Well there's a light in your eye that keeps shining Like a star that can't wait for the night I hate to think I've been blinded baby Why can't I see you tonight ? And the warmth of your smile starts a-burnin' And the thrill of your touch gives me fright And I'm shaking so much, really yearning Why don't you show up, make it alright ? Yeah, it's all right And if you promised you'd love so completely And you said you would always be true You swore that you would never leave me, baby What ever happened to you ? And you thought it was only in movies As you wish all your dreams would come true It ain't the first time believe me, baby I'm standin' here feeling blue Yeah I'm blue Now I will stand in the rain on the corner I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown Another ten minutes no longer And then I'm turning around The clock on the wall's moving slower My heart it sinks to the ground And the storm that I thought would blow over Clouds the light of the love that I found Now my body is starting to quiver And the palms of my hands getting wet I've got no reason to doubt you, baby It's all a terrible mess I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop, hey The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, oh yeah Light of the love that I found ...
Hot Dog Well I just got into town today To find my girl who's gone away She took the Greyhound at the General Store I searched myself I searched the town When I finally did sit down I find myself no wiser than before She said we couldn't do no wrong No other love could be so strong She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer Now she took my heart she took my keys From in my old blue dungarees And I'll never go to Texas anymore * chorus * Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do She took my love and walked right out the door And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure I'm gonna give her something like she never had before I took her love at seventeen A little late these days it seems But they said heaven is well worth waiting for I took her word I took it all Beneath the sign that said "U-haul" She left angels hangin round for more * chorus * I thought I had it all sewn up Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck But folks said she was after something more I never did quite understand All that talk about rockin' bands But they just rolled my doll right out the door Oh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door !
Carouselambra Sisters of the way-side bide their time in quiet peace Await their place within the ring of calm Still stand to turn in seconds of release Await the call they know may never come In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon To jeopardize the course, upset the run And all was joy and hands were raised toward the sun As love in the halls of plenty overrun Still in their bliss unchallenged mighty feast Unending dances shadowed on the day Within their walls, their daunting formless keep Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray And everything is soon no sooner thought than deed But no one seemed to question in anyway How keen the storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land To seek the unsuspecting and the weak And powerless the fabled sat, too smug to lift a hand Toward the foe that threatened from the deep Who cares to dry the cheeks of those who saddened stand Adrift upon a sea of futile speech ? And to fall to fate and make the 'status plan' Where was your word, where did you go ? Where was your helping, where was your bow Dull is the armour, cold is the day Hard was the journey, dark was the way I heard the word - I couldn't stay, oh I couldn't stand it another day ..... Touched by the timely coming Roused from the keeper's sleep Release the grip, throw down the key Held now within the knowing Rest now within the peace Take of the fruit, but guard the seed They had to stay Held now within the knowing Rest now within the beat Take of the fruit, but guard the seed
All My Love Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light - to chase a feather in the wind ? Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight - there moves a thread that has no end For many hours and days that pass ever soon - the tides have caused the flame to dim At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom - is this to end or just begin ? All of my love, all of my love - all of my love to you ..... The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again - one voice is clear above the din Proud Aryan one word, my will to sustain - for me, the cloth once more to spin All of my love, all of my love - all of my love to you ..... Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time - his is the force that lies within Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find - he is a feather in the wind All of my love, all of my love - all of my love to you .....
