Track Name: Fly At Night
Fly At Night

Four men in a rock n’ roll band, fly at night in the morning we land
Fly at night ‘til we’re satisfied, see the morning from the other side

And when you close your eyes, sleep comes fast
When you fly the universe well ya,
Need some rest ya you,
Need some rest…

Ooh we like the big wide spaces, ya we like a sea of faces
Time is just a rubber band, time is at our command
And when we look out, and see you there
You seem much closer and you
Feel so near, ya you, feel so near

Awwwwwwwww X2

When we fly by night it’s like a rocket flight
And baby that’s just what it’s for
Ya we fly by night it makes you feel all right
You keep comin’ back for more

Awwwwwwwww -solo- acoustic intro

Repeat last verse*
Awwwwwwww x 4 solo

Repeat 1st verse
Track Name: I'm Tired
I’m Tired

Well I’m tired of a being a fool
And my mind’s going from hot to cool
And trying to conform to others ideas
And someone else’s rules

The life I’m living ain’t mine
I’m suppose to feel that’s fine
I didn’t make the world I’m living in
And I ain’t gonna toe the line

*I’m tired of trying to be something I know ain’t me
I’m tired of living up to what people expect me to be
You know that some people are different now ain’t that a crying shame
Now wouldn’t it be a real drag if we were all the same

*And I’m not going to try to please
Eyes that just don’t see
If I get myself together
You’ll have the blues not me

Solo

Repeat: *


Tag: You’ll have the blues not me X4

Ooo…
Come down off your throne and leave your body alone
Somebody must change

You are the reason I’ve been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key

Chorus:
But I’m near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I’m wasted and I can't find my way home

Track Name: If I Had Possession
If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day

If I had possession, over judgment day
If I had possession, over judgment day
Lord the men that I'm lovin' would
Have no right to pray

And I went to the mountain, far as my eyes could see
And I went to the mountain, far as my eye could see
Oh somebody got my baby and the lonesome blues got me

And I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long
Lord I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long
And I woke up this mornin', my biscuit roller gone

SOLO

Had to fold my arms and, slowly walked away
Had to fold my arms and I, slowly walked away
I said in my mind, "Yo, trouble gon' come some day"

And now run here baby, get down on bended knee
Oh now run here baby, get down on bended knee
I wanna tell you all about the, way they treated me
Track Name: Baby It's You
Baby It’s You

It's not the way you smile, that touched my heart
It's not the way you kissed, that tears me apart

Chorus:
Many, many, many nights go by
I sit alone, at home and cry
Over you, what can I do
Don't want nobody, nobody
Cause baby, it's you, baby it's you

Is it true what they say, about you
They say you'll never, ever, never, be true

Chorus:
It doesn't matter, what they say
I know I'm gonna love you any old way
What can I do, what about you
Don't want nobody, nobody
Baby it's you, baby it's you

Don’t leave me alone

Chorus:
It doesn't matter, what they say
I know I'm gonna love any old way
What can I do, what about you
Don't want nobody, nobody

Come on home
Baby it's you
Track Name: Your Lies
Your Lies

Your lies won't leave me, alone
You used to say you loved me, did ya
Why'd you do me this way, it didn't have to be that way

I got your message, on the phone
I hung on every single line
You told me what we had was only business
Hurt me so bad I had to sit down with the sickness
Oh yeah

Your lies won't leave me, alone
Tore the phone out the wall and it's still ringin'
Wreck the room and curtains ain't hangin' baby
Guitar ain't playin'

Your lies won't leave me, alone
Look at your picture in the room
I can see you were never happy with me baby
All my uncertainty, is easy to see
How you're killin' me cause

I got those bills you would not pay
The cost of our love is way too high
And I just keep on payin' baby
Why'd you say you loved me

Walk around and carry on hurting but your love is gone
The song I sing is sad and long wonder if you are alone
I don't know if I belong

Your lies won't leave me, alone…
Track Name: I'd Love To Change The World
I’d Love To Change The World

Everywhere is freaks and hairies, dykes and ferries, tell me where is sanity?
Tax the rich, feed the poor, till there are no rich no more

Chorus:
I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you

Population, keeps on breeding, nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny, bees make honey, who needs money monopoly

Chorus:
I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you

World population, there’s no solution, institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor, them and us, stop the war

Chorus:
I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you
Track Name: Dreams
Dreams

Just one more morning, I had to wake up with the blues
Pulled myself out of bed ya, put on my walking shoes
Went up on the mountain, to see what I could see
The whole world is fallin’, right down in front of me

Chorus:
Cause I’ve been hung up, on dreams I’ll never see, oh baby
Oh help me baby, oh, this will surely be, the end of me ya

Just one more morning, I had to wake up with the blues
Pulled myself out of bed ya, put on my walking shoes
Pull myself together, put on a new face
Climb down off hilltop baby, get back in the race

SOLO

Pull myself together, put on a new face
Climb down off hilltop baby, get back in the race

Chorus:
Cause I’ve been hung up, on dreams I’ll never see, oh baby
Oh help me baby, oh, this will surely be, the end of me ya

SOLO
Track Name: Ramble On
Ramble On

Leaves are falling all around, it’s time I was on my own
Thanks to you I’m much obliged for such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go, autumn moon lights my way
But now I smell the rain and with it’s pain and it’s headed my way
Oh sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I got one thing I got to do

Chorus:
Ramble on, now the time, the time is now to sing my song
Going around the world gonna find my girl I’m on my way
I’ve been this way ten years to the day
Gonna Ramble on, gotta find the queen of all of my dreams

Got no time for spreading roots, the time has come to be gone
And to our health we drank a thousand times and it’s time to ramble on

Chorus:
Ramble on, now the time, the time is now to sing my song
Going around the world gonna find my girl I’m on my way
I’ve been this way ten years to the day
Gonna Ramble on, gotta find the queen of all of my dreams

Life’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold hear
Years ago, in days of old, when magic filled the air
Was the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her.. ya
There’s nothing I can do now, so I’ll keep on

Chorus:
Ramble on, now the time, the time is now to sing my song
Going around the world gonna find my girl I’m on my way
I’ve been this way ten years to the day
Gonna Ramble on, gotta find the queen of all of my dreams
