Weight of the World

I'm weary and I'm staying up late
And the rain hits my roof so hard
You know I'm no longer thirty
These days I'm happy to play
One or two hands of cards
I hate flies in the kitchen buzzing
Disturbing the peace I've found
Fortune and fame is so fleeting
These days I'm happy to say
I'm amazed that I'm still around

And the weight of the world is off my back
When we fell, we got up
And crawled out the cracks
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back

Humidity hangs like a curtain
Oh, it fogs up my glasses sometimes
You know I've still got my eyesight
These days I'm happy to see
A sunset instead of a line

And the weight of the world is off my back
When we fell, we got up
And crawled out the cracks
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back

There's a long list of names
That I don't recall
Even though my memory's good
The rain washed away
The lemons and weeds
When the weight of the world weighed more than it should

I hate flies in the kitchen buzzing
Disturbing the peace I've found
Fortune and fame is so fleeting
These days I'm happy to say
I'm amazed that I'm still around
And the weight of the world is off my back
When we fell, we got up
And crawled out the cracks
Excuse me if I take some comfort in that
Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back

Happy today, happy to play
With the weight of the world off of my back

 

Western Ford Gateway

It's hard to feel what's in your head
Where the gas lamps grow
And the garbage blows
Around the paper stands

And a baby cried
And I saw a light
And I wondered where
And I wondered why
There'd be a loss of life
Down here tonight

Down on Western Ford Gateway
That's a place where the dead say
That a man lives no more
Than his fair share of days
Down on Western Ford Gateway

It flowed upon the cobbled floor
For the bottle's dead
And they're drunk again
By the tavern door

 

We'd Go Dancing

I hated the sod - for thirty three year
We should never have married of that I'm quite clear
He spent the housekeeping money on whisky and beer
And never lifted a finger
Times were hard, but the swine rolled back pissed

We'd fight and he'd swing and he rarely missed
So I'd clobber the sod when he couldn't resist:
Asleep, you can't lift a finger.
But we'd go dancing... and he'd hold me tight
He was air. He was water, He was breath. He was light
And he would hold me there, with all his might.
It was bliss for an hour or so
But then they called time to go
And in the morning we were sober.

0 he'd drink and he'd talk just like a fool
Lie like a bairn and snore like a mule
Rarely was sober, pretty much was the rule
And he never lifted a finger
I suppose times were hard, things were different
Then Women were women and men they were men
Seventeen, that was it. your life ended when
You had a ring around your finger.

But we'd go dancing, he was me own Brando
And for a moment there my heart was a-glow
We had dust in our hair and nowhere to go
But we were free for an hour or three
From the people we had to be
But in the morning we were sober

But if I went through my time again,
Oh I'd do it without the help of men
Or at least your Grandad
But then again, you know
Best not to linger

What is the use of dreaming now?
I had my chance, well anyhow,
If I'd only known then what I know now
I'd've given them all the finger

And gone dancing, and not give a shit
And spin around and reel and love each bit
And I'd dance alone and enjoy it
And I'd be me for an entire life.
Instead of somebody's wife
And I never would be sober.
And I never would be sober

 

Whatever Gets You Through the Night

Whatever gets you through the night it's alright, it's alright
It' your money or your life it's alright, it's alright
Don't need a sword to cut thru flowers oh no, oh no
Whatever gets you thru your life it's alright, it's alright

Trust me darling come on listen to me, come on listen to me

When a Woman Doesn't Want You

She may be lost
She may be out of bounds
All her tenderness and charms could be something
A man like me has never found
But in her woman's way
She's still a little girl
The things that she wants, the things that she needs
Oh well the choice is hers

'Cause you can't take a woman
When she doesn't want you
And you can't be a man
If you're blind to reason
Man might be strong
But true love is stronger
You gotta play it straight
When a woman doesn't want you

Her voice invites
Her eyes say more than words
But her needs and complications
Can tear away the memory of last night's girl
And if you're weak
Yeah we're all weak sometime
The best things can wait
The best times they come
Oh when strength is kind

And if you can't read her
Leave her alone
And if you don't know by now
She's not someone's prize
And you can't take her home

 

When I Think about Love (I Think about You)

I've been beaming aboard her for a light year
From a strange craft
She's got a subtle touch on the silver key
To a clockwork heart

I am your robot, I am your robot
I am your robot man
I am your robot, I am your robot
I am your robot man

You went and flipped the switch and turned me positive
When I was negative
I've been stumbling around like a metal man
On the graveyard shift

I am your robot and I'm programmed to love you
My serial number is 44357

 

When I Was Tealby Abbey

I'm very low but not too dim
I can still see the faces of you and him
I remember well how it used to be
You remember too obviously

Remember when, remember when I was Tealby Abbey then
It was not so long ago maybe a hundred years or so
When I was Tealby Abbey
That's a long long time ago
When I was Tealby Abbey
That's a long long time ago

When the clock stopped and the rocks dropped
And the gravel started giving away
I can still recall when we were small
But oh what a fateful day

In younger times, children climb
Up and down your walls
And a curse on the day the fates will say
When Tealby Abbey falls

 

When Love is Dying

They say we bruise too easily
I don't know if it's that way for me
I've seen 'em come, I've seen 'em go
I've seen everyone I know
Fall in and out of love
It's just the way it goes

Word is out, silence seems so loud
There's no light above or below me now
I've seen it grow, I've seen it live
I've seen everything I give
Falling out my hands, no matter who I'm with

And nobody ever tells you
When love is dying, when love is dying
It just gets a little colder
And we stop trying, we stop trying
Yeah we stop trying
Oh when love is dying

There's a pain you never can explain
It cuts so deep time and time again
I felt it then, I feel it now
But nobody told me how
To fight a world of hurt
Somebody help me now

But love never gets to show you
And I never got to know you
No we never stood a chance
When love was dying
No and love never makes it easy
And I never got that feeling
No we never stood a chance
When love was dying

 

When the First Tear Shows

Hold my hand girl much tighter, much much tighter
'Cause what I've got to say I only hope and pray
Comes out as well as I rehearsed it yesterday

And baby when the first tear shows
It's a sign for you to go
And baby when the first tear shows
It's a sign for you to go and leave her alone
With the broken dreams that she owns

It's a crime for me to tell you
It's a sin for me to stay
And I'll never look behind me
When I start to walk away
Firl I'm sorry but it's all that I can say

you know that I used to love you so
Enjoy every moment together
Well I'm not the kind of man
To forever hold your hand
And I've said as much as I should say

 

When the Money's Gone

When the money's gone, will you be my friend
Float a small row boat till the ship comes in
When the winter nights chill us to the soul
Will you feed the fire, spin the straw to gold
When the money's gone

When the money's gone, will you get cold feet
Will you still be there if the ends don't meet
Till we're in the red just forget the green
Take a bus with me, no more limousines
When the money's gone

Will you still want me
All it ever was
Will you still love me, will you want me

Oh what a fine life I give to you
All you ever want
Will you still be there
Will you pull me through when the cash don't come
And if you're mine
Will you still love me wherever we fall
When the money's gone

Oh will you want me baby
Oh will you need me baby
Oh will you love me baby
When the money's gone

When the money's gone, no more caviar
Will you eat fast food in a beat up car
Live life modestly, lost in lotto dreams
Will you find your way through it all with me
Through it all with me
Will you still love me
All it ever was
Will you still want me, will you want me

And a mile off the shore
Flies a bird who'll land no more
And as the tide pulls the sea
So you always will pull me forever more
