Lyrics to all the songs on “It All Comes Back”

MOROCCO

I took myself far away from home
To see what I could find
Another road another city in the sunshine
I left this country far behind

A thousand miles flying south down to Morocco
A midnight flight across the mountain lands of Spain
The morning breeze was blowing cool in across the ocean
Reminding me of long-forgotten rain

Took a walk along a desert shore
To watch the sun sinking low beneath the sea
And when the day was done I heard somebody singing
The music played so free and easy

The moon arose behind a mountain sky
To sit upon a silver throne
Her dancing moonbeams did their best to try
To steal the night away
 

IT’S GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME

It’s going to take some time, this time
To get myself in shape
I really fell out of line this time
I really missed the gate
The birds on the telephone line
Are crying out to me
And I won’t be so blind next time
And I’ll find some harmony

But it’s going to take some time, this time
And I can’t make demands
But like the young trees in the wintertime
I’ll learn how to bend
After all the tears we’ve spent
How could we make amends
So it’s one more round for experience
And I’m on the road again
And it’s going to take some time, this time

It’s going to take some time, this time
No matter what I’ve planned
But like the young trees in the wintertime
I’ll learn how to bend
After all the tears we’ve spent
How could we make amends
So it’s one more round for experience
And I’m on the road again
But it’s going to take some time, this time
Some time, this time
It’s going to take some time, this time
 

LOOK AT ME

Who gives us the right to tell each other what to do
Or to question why we laugh or to say that we are through
Should I tell you now that all of your ideals are wrong
Or should I keep it to myself, maybe put in a song
Still you try to find where we belong

Somehow it doesn’t seem to work out quite that way
And at the end of it all there’s nothing left to say
The things you said you’d do
And the person you said you’d be
Failed when you forgot to learn how to be free
Still you say, “Won’t you take a look at me?”

How long will it take to find out who I am?
When can you say that you think yourself a man?

So you found yourself a corner
And you built up your ideas
You closed up all the doors
And you pushed aside your fears
You settled down to life
And now you say that you are free
But you can’t feel the waves
When you’re deep into the sea
Still you say, “Won’t you take a look at me?”

How long will it take to find out who I am?
When can you say that you think yourself a man?

How long will it take to find out who I am?
When can you say that you think yourself a man?
 

IT ALL COMES BACK TO ME

Something was lost
Forgotten, left behind
But now it comes to mind
Now the corners they have been swept
And I’ve not slept
For looking around 

And it all comes back to me now
You bring it back somehow you do

Something was sleeping
So deep I did not know
Maybe I moved too slow
Now the lights they are all back on
It’s not all gone
I feel it around

And it all comes back to me now
You bring it back somehow you do

You have brought something home to me
You have uncovered a need in me
And now I find you close to me
Old visions reappear to me
Of times gone by
When I could fly
And now I find you’re on my mind
And now I think I’ve woken up again

Something was sleeping
So deep I did not know
Well, maybe I moved too slow
Now the corners they have been swept
And I’ve not slept
For looking around

And it all comes back to me now
You bring it back somehow you do
 

HOME TO STAY

I wake just as the sun breaks through
Although I’ve not been sleeping
Touch the place still warm from you
The memories it’s keeping
How long should it be this way?
Is there rhyme or reason?
What are all these games you play?
When are you coming home to stay?

The table’s always laid for two
The wine is in the glasses
I dress and pamper just for you
As each long moment passes
But as I throw it all away
I wonder at the reason
What are all these games you play?
When are you coming home to stay?

I tell my friends you’re home today
They think I’ve lost my reason
What are all these games we play?
When are you coming home to stay?

And once again the night is here
You visit in the twilight
And in my dreams it’s oh so clear
And as you hold me so tight
I wonder why you never stay
To kiss me in the morning
What are all these games you play?
When are you coming home to stay?
When are you coming home to stay?
 

GOLDEN THREAD

If you see me fly past your window
When you’re resting in your room
It’s not that I am staying out late
But maybe came in too soon

You may think I’m half crazy
I know a lot of people do
But I was caught in a golden thread
And the golden spider was you

Now the world is mine again
I can come and go as I choose
I’ve got a lot, yes the whole world is mine
Yet I still have nothing to lose

Yes I know, oh I’ve got a lot
To thank you for
You opened my eyes to so much
I was blind to before

You may say, you may say that I’m half crazy
I know a lot of people do
But I was caught in a golden thread
And the golden spider was you

Now the world is mine again
I can come and go as I choose
I’ve got a lot, the whole world is mine
Yet I still have nothing to lose

Now the world is mine again
I can come, I can go as I choose
I’ve got a lot, the whole world is mine
Yet I still have nothing to lose
 

AIN’T ALWAYS EASY

Ain’t always easy knowing what is right
Ain’t always easy
Should we run or should we fight it out in summer sun
There’s a lot of good things going on
There’s so much that can be done
But it ain’t always easy choosing the way
Ain’t always easy knowing what to say
To the world outside as though it’s near
Always ready to lend an ear
Helping out is nice but then it ain’t always easy
Ain’t always easy
Ain’t always easy but it’s always there

Oh let me give you some good advice
For what it’s worth to you
You can take it or leave it
I don’t really mind
I don’t really mind
I don’t mind what you do

I said it ain’t always easy knowing what to do
Ain’t always easy
When the trouble is that you are going out of your mind
On something that’s sweet and kind
All your troubles get left behind
And it ain’t always easy
Ain’t always easy
Ain’t always easy
But it’s always there
I said it ain’t always easy
But it’s always there
 

KEW GARDENS

The air was cool
On lilypools
Hazy, lazy
And here and there
He’d stop to stare
Admiring all the flowers (Kew Gardens)
Wandering round for hours (Kew Gardens)

The sun was warm
Across the lawn
Scented, blended
He saw her linger
And with her finger
Open up a rose (Kew Gardens)
Standing on tiptoes (Kew Gardens)

Suddenly the rain came flurrying
Sending the two of them hurrying
Helter skelter for the shelter
And feeling bolder in the great pagoda
He gently inquired her name
And they waited till the sunshine came (Kew Gardens)

And for a while
The gryphon smiled
Kindly, blindly
Till the evening bell
Broke the spell
And sadly they said goodbye (Kew Gardens)
And one of the gryphons cried
In Kew Gardens

 

SPARKLE IN YOUR EYE

The time has come for you to go away
And it looks like it’s a sunny day
It’s nice for travelling to places
You have never been to before

You pack your suitcase
And your clothes are neatly pressed
You’ve taken the first step
And it’s now to find the rest
But you’ve been longing for
Always knowing
It lay somewhere outside your door

There’s a sparkle in your eye
And there’s fresh hope in your heart
It all went wrong
And now you’re making a brand-new start
But there is still a sadness in the air
As you think of him coming home
Finding a note alone
You left him there

Do you think that he will understand
And wish you happiness
In someone else’s hand
Or stand there helpless
By the window and wonder
What did he do that was so wrong
Can you tell him what went wrong?
Can you say what went wrong?
Oh, can anyone explain what went wrong?
Or was it you all along?

The sparkle in your eye
Has now dimmed a little bit
You had it all worked out and planned
But it doesn’t quite all fit
Sit by the roadside
Trying not to think of him
The sparkle in your eye
The sparkle in your eye
Is growing dim
 

IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

It’s cold outside and it’s raining too
Can I come in awhile?
I’m getting soaked all through
I didn’t see it coming
When I left it looked OK
When it came I started running
And I seemed to end up here

Can I help you, shall I put the kettle on?
We’ll have some coffee
When the rain stops I’ll be gone
I hope you don’t mind too much
Me coming in like this
You know it’s not like me but then
You know what the summer is

(What the summer is)
Changing its mind from minute to minute
(What the summer is)
Choosing a way when there’s nothing in it
(What the summer is)
Can you tell me, how did we begin it?

There’s milk for you and one for me
I hope that’s right
I remember you take three
It looks like it’s stopped raining
I’d best be on my way
I know you have a lot to do
I suppose you’d better stay

(You’d better stay)
So I’ll walk out on my own
(You’d better stay)
You know I never did like being alone
(You’d better stay)
Would you like to come along
What’s that you say?
Oh yes, I’d like to stay
Then we can both go home
And it looks like the rain has now gone
And we can both go home
 

ONE MORE DRINK

One more drink
One more glass
One more throw before I go
It’s been so long
Since you and I got high
So let’s have one more
To say goodbye

I never thought I’d ever run into you again
But I guess I should have known
You can roll a bad penny
For all you are worth
But give it time
And it will always come rolling home

So let’s have one more drink
One more glass
One more throw before I go
It’s been so long
Since you and I got high
So let’s have one more
To say goodbye

I can remember when I was going straight
It was you who told them all about my past
And you nearly got me locked away
When you told them
They’d better go
And check on all their cash

So let’s have one more drink
One more glass
One more throw before I go
It’s been so long
Since you and I got high
So let’s have one more
To say goodbye

Then there was the daughter of the man with the cane
I really thought that you might settle down
Then I told him of your girl in Pittsburg
And the one in San Antone
And now you know
That’s why they ran you out of town

So let’s have one more drink
One more glass
One more throw before I go
It’s been so long
Since you and I got high
So let’s have one more
To say goodbye

And let’s have one more drink
One more glass
One more throw before I go
It’s been so long
Since you and I got high
So let’s have one more
To say goodbye
 

SUNDOWN WAKER

Hey look, there’s a girl on the skyline
Her gaze is raised to the stars
She’s waiting for night and the lights of the city
When it gets dark she can start
I’ve seen her before at a bus stop
Making her way downtown
Where she can lose herself in the evening
Dreaming and doing the rounds

’Cause there nobody knows your face my friend
A sundown waker, no-one cares who you are
Let alone where you have been so far
’Cause there nobody knows your face my friend
A sundown waker, no-one cares who you are
Let alone where you have been so far

She sleeps late, the sun don’t wake her
Though her curtains are not so thick
She usually gets home about five in the morning
She’s been mixing some pills with her drinks
The night life of the city is a pulse beat that she likes
She takes it in stride ’cause it helps her to hide
There she can do what she likes

’Cause there nobody knows your face my friend
A sundown waker, no-one cares who you are
Let alone where you have been so far
’Cause there nobody knows your face my friend
A sundown waker, no-one cares who you are
Let alone where you have been so far

She always has two more drinks for the road

’Cause there nobody knows your face my friend
A sundown waker, no-one cares who you are
Let alone where you have been so far
’Cause there nobody knows your face my friend
A sundown waker, no-one cares who you are
Let alone where you have been so far
 

WE ARE TODAY

Thinking about tomorrow
I’m thinking about today
And all of the good things
I may find along the way
There’s bound to be some high times
Bound to be some downs
One thing I know is
I’m bound for being bound

We are today
We are today

Talking to many people
Thay all have their ideas
They all have their own sweet joys
Their own likes and fears
Some of them must be right
Some of them must be wrong
What was right for yesterday
Today it don’t belong

We are today
We are today

Travelling the same road
We may part around the bend
I’d like to think that I can call you my friend
I’m not the one for big talk
I’m not the one to boast
But friends all around me
Is the thing I need the most

We are today
We are today
We are today
We are today
We are today
We are today
 

THE GOOD TIMES WE HAD

Times have changed
All the good times that we had
Are gone now
Passed this way
Only memories will remain tomorrow
I thought my dreams would be enough for awhile
And all the plans that we made
Hey we had love, that was all that we had
And even that don’t seem the same

Peace of mind
Where’s the happiness we should be having
We can’t find any answers
In the good times we had

I thought my dreams would be enough for awhile
And all the plans that we made
Hey we had love, that was all that we had
And even that don’t seem the same

Peace of mind
Where’s the happiness we should be having
We can’t find any answers
In the good times we had
