Idol

He was a light star
Tripping on a high wire
Bulldog stubborn, born uneven
A classless creature, a man for all seasons
But don't bet them
They can't take him
To the very bottom
Because they made him and they'll waste him
And I don't believe that I want to watch them

`Cause the fifties shifted out of gear
He was an idol then, now he's an idol here
But his face has changed, he's not the same no more
And I have to say that I like the way his music sounded before

He was tight-assed
Walking on broken glass
Highly prized in the wallet size
The number one crush in a schoolgirl's eyes
But don't pretend that it won't end
In the depth of your despair
You went from lame suits right down to tennis shoes
To peanuts from the lion's share

 

If it Wasn't For Bad

I knew from the first night I met you
Something just wasn't quite right
Looked like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

How could I know that you would use me
Fill out some plan of your own
I couldn't know you'd abuse me
Leave me here hurt and alone

If it wasn't for you I'd be happy
If it wasn't for lies you'd be true
I know you could be just like you should
If it wasn't for bad you'd be good

I only saw what I wanted to see
You were a dream in my mind
I didn't know how you really could be
It didn't take long for me to find

I guess that it's my fault for seeing
Only what I wanted to see
I couldn't know you would be
A player just acting for me

I knew from the first night I met you
Something just wasn't quite right
Looked like an innocent stranger
But something was just out of sight

 

If the River Can Bend

I don't know what to say
I don't know where the light shines
It's a grey dawn rising on a green hill
And there's so much behind us

I don't know where we go
I sure feel there's something out there
There's a great awakening and a new morning
And your spirit's pounding loud and clear

If the river can bend
I'll find you waiting
Home at last from the wild sea
All the twists and turns
We've made together
All the boats you rocked
With your harmony
If the river can bend
If the river can bend
If the river can bend
If the river can bend

Come and embrace the struggle
But win or lose we live here
Build a new beginning on an old rock
Breathe deep of the sweet fresh air

 

If There's a God in Heaven (What's He Waiting for?)

Torn from their families
Mothers go hungry
To feed their children
But children go hungry
There's so many big men
They're out making millions
When poverty's profits
Just blame the children

If there's a God in heaven
What's he waiting for
If He can't hear the children
Then he must see the war
But it seems to me
That he leads his lambs
To the slaughter house
And not the promised land

Dying for causes
They don't understand
We've been taking their futures
Right out of their hands
They need the handouts
To hold back the tears
There's so many crying
But so few that hear

If there's a God in heaven
Well, what's he waiting for

If there's a God in heaven
What's he waiting for

 

If You Were Me

If you were me
And I was you
If you had to play my part out
What would you do
Two crazy stories
Two different views
If you were me
And I was you

If you were me
And I was you
What kind of crazy things
Would I have to do
Who likes to party
Who stays at home
If you were me
And I was you

Never like strangers
Though never the same
Two circus sideshows
That laughed in the rain
You stayed with the full moon
You searched for the stars
Thank God in His heaven
Here we both are

 

In Neon

Lipstick and lashes, the traces of stardom
Lit up on a billboard so everyone sees them in neon
Behind the counter she stares out the window
Up at the billboard that's like a reminder in neon

She hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
Maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in neon
For two cents of danger she'd trust anybody
She'd smoke like a gun if it meant she might wind up

In neon the dreams in the light of a promise that dies
A shimmering city, a glimmer of hope and a lie
In neon the name's gone there's no reason why anymore
Trust them and wind up alone behind a locked door

In neon, in neon

Pictures and patterns, the touches of glamour
Cut into a fashion that flashes above them in neon
A hot cup of coffee held in her fingers
A perfect complexion that lingers above her in neon

She hates how she feels but she hangs like a mirror
Maybe a stranger could walk in and see her in neon
For a shot at the title, she'd slip into something
She'd smoulder like ashes if it meant she might wind up in neon

In neon

 

In the Hands of Angels

Well I could have been sick, I could have died
I could have given up and not tried
To make it to tomorrow
Like a broken hearted lover

But there was a brand new start
And suddenly I was taken
New and faraway places
And the music I was shaken

It was a whole new race
When I woke on that first day
There was nothing I could say
I was in the hands of angels

Johnny and the governor
Came and brought me to my senses
They made me feel just like a king
Made me lose all my bad defenses

And they knew all the places I needed to go
All of the people I needed to know
They knew who I needed and who needed me
And who would come help me
And who would just let me be

I was in the hands of angels
Until this very day
Inside the hands of angels
What more can I say

When you're in the hands of angels
Life is oh so sweet
And you feel the love down deep inside
Even out there on the street

In the hands of angels

 

In the Morning

In the morning there's a feeling
As I free my eyes of sleep
And think only of him running
To the promise he must keep

Such a love I've never known
It fills my life with joy
Oh the miracles the morning brings
The dark cannot destroy

You may find if he's there
It eases your mind
And besides he's so kind
It makes you feel fine
In the morning

Through my window comes a light
Like none that I have known
Well the night has passed between us
And the love has grown and grown

Like a river through a valley
Where the waters never end
Spinning down and always onward
As he come to me again

 

In the Summertime

In the summertime when the weather is high
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather's fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a draft
Go out and see what you can find

If her daddy's rich, take her out for a meal
If her daddy's poor, just do what you feel
Speed along the lane, do a _______________
When the sun goes down, you can make it, make it good and then they buy

We're not ____ people, we're not dirty __________
We love everybody, but we do as we please
When the weather's fine, we go fishing or go swimming in the sea
We're always happy, __________ yeah that's our philosophy

Sing along with us, de de de-de-dee
Da da da-da-da, yeah we're hap-happy
Da da da-da-da-da-da da da-da da
Da da da-da-da-da-da da da-da da

When the winter's here, yeah it's party time
Bring you bottle, ___________ it'll soon be summertime
And we'll sing again, __________________ settle down
If she's rich, if she's nice, bring your friends and we'll all go into town

 

Indian Maiden

Got an Indian maiden
I've got a photograph of you
And I'm hanging on to every little clue about you

I've got a prepaid reservation
I've got my regulation tan
And this child is on his way to Indian land
My Indian maiden

Got an Indian maiden
I've got my Hopi charms in hand
And I'm tracking down her footprints in the sand of Indian lands
My Indian maiden

Shake it loose, I have no use for city living
Turn my back on the back-slap jacks
And the madcap women, women

Got an Indian maiden
I've got a photograph of you
And I'm hanging on to every little clue about you
My Indian maiden
