ALL I HAVE TO DO IS DREAM 

(Lyrics: Boudleaux Bryant)

(Music: Boudleaux Bryant)

 

* This song was performed live once as a duet with Bjørn Eidsvåg - 05/07/1991.

 

I can make you mine 

Taste your lips of wine 

Any time, night or day 

Only trouble is, gee whiz, 

I'm dreamin' my life away 

Dream, 

Dream, dream, dream 

Dream, 

Dream, dream, dream -- 

Whenever I want you 

All I have to do is dream 

Dream, dream, dream 

When I want you 

in the night 

When I want you 

to hold me tight 

Whenever I want you 

All I have to do is dream 

Dream, dream, dream 

Dream 

Dream, dream, dream 

I can make you mine 

Taste your lips of wine 

Any time, night or day 

Only trouble is, gee whiz, 

I'm dreamin' my life away 

I need you so 

that I could die 

I want you so 

And that is why 

Whenever I want you 

All I have to do is dream 

Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream 

Dream 

Dream, dream, to dream, to dream, to dream 

Dream, 

dream, dream, dream, dream, dream 

 


 

APE ANGEL

(Words: Ole Sverre Olsen)

 
* This song was performed live during several concerts.
 
I'm not clean
I've never been clean
You all know that I mean
You just take a look
In my genes
Babe I'm untrue
Split in two
Halo and hoof
A runaway from the zoo
From heaven to you
United in you
Ape Angel
Come fly with me
Let's climb a tree
Together
Ape Angel
You're an open road
And a dead end street
Together
Together now
Made out of clay
Nothing but clay
Till it came our way
And golden ray
Hit the DNA
On the seventh day
Ape Angel
Come fly with me
Let's climb a tree
Together
Ape Angel
You're an open road
And a dead end street
Together
Together now
I'm not clean
I've never been clean
You all know that I mean
You just take a look
In my genes
Ape Angel
Come fly with me
Let's climb a tree
Together
Ape Angel
You're an open road
And a dead end street
Together
Together now
 
 

BACK TO THE SENSES

BE BOP A LULA

(Music: Gene Vincent)

(Lyrics: Donald Graves or Bill "Sheriff Tex" Davis)

 

* This song was performed live once as a duet with Bjørn Eidsvåg - 05/07/1991.

 

Be Bop A Lula

Well,

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby

Be bop a Lula, I don't mean maybe

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby,

Be bop a Lula, I don't mean maybe

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby doll, 

My baby doll, my baby doll

She's the girl in the red-blue jeans,

She's the queen of all the teens,

She's the wo-woman that I know,

She's the woman that loves me so,

Say,

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby

Be bop a Lula, I don't mean maybe

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby,

Be bop a Lula, I don't mean maybe

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby doll, 

My baby doll, my baby doll

She's the woman that's a-got that beat,

She's the woman with the flying feet,

She's the one that walks around the store,

She's the one who gets, more, more, more, more

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby

Be bop a Lula, I don't mean maybe

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby,

Be bop a Lula, I don't mean maybe

Be bop a Lula, she's my baby doll, 

My baby doll, my baby doll

 


 
BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER
(Paul Simon)

 

* This song was performed live at least twice :

During the Momarkedet Festival on August 22nd 1992

On November 27th 1997 with the Oslo Gospel Choir in Guatelama.

 

When you are weary, feelin' small

When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all

I'm on your side, oh

When times get rough and friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

When you're down and out, when you're on the street

When evening falls so hard, I will comfort you,

I'll take your part, oh

When darkness comes and pain is all around,

Troubled water, I will lay me down...

Sail on Silver girl, sail on by

Your time has come to shine 

All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine, oh

If you need a friend, I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will ease your mind

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will ease your mind

 


 

BYE BYE LOVE

(Felice & Boudleaux Bryant)

 

* This song was performed live once as a duet with Bjørn Eidsvåg - 05/07/1991.

 

Bye Bye love

Bye bye love

Bye bye happiness

Hello loneliness

I think I'm gonna cry

Bye bye love

Bye bye sweet caress

Hello emptiness

I feel like I could die

Bye bye my love, goodbye

There goes my baby

With someone new

She sure looks happy

I sure am blue

She was my baby

Till he stepped in

Goodbye to romance

That might have been

Bye bye love

Bye bye happiness

Hello loneliness

I think I'm gonna cry

Bye bye love

Bye bye sweet caress

Hello emptiness

I feel like I could die

Bye bye my love, goodbye

I'm through with romance

I'm through with love

I'm through with counting

The stars above

And here's the reason

That I'm so free

My loving baby

Is through with me

Bye bye love

Bye bye happiness

Hello loneliness

I think I'm gonna cry

Bye bye love

Bye bye sweet caress

Hello emptiness

I feel like I could die

Bye bye my love, goodbye

 


 

CHILDREN FIRST

 

* This song was performed live for a UNICEF concert as a duet with Harley Westenra.

 

Somewhere in the world

In the starry night

There's a boy or girl

Whispering good night

And wondering what tomorrow brings

Will they play out in the sun

Climb the highest tree

Walk up on the moon

Ever grow to be

Their special someone of the dream

Teacher, tailor, preacher or sailor

Doctor, dancer, referee,

Nurse or baker, candle stick maker

There's so many things to be

Wish I may, wish I might

Have a wish, I wish tonight

First of all

Here on Earth

We've been just

A children first

Every daughter and son

Is a child of their own

And the world that we make

They call their home

In a world of war

Life is never fair

To a frighten child

Crying in despair

Afraid of what tomorrow brings

Will they live to see a day

Filled with love and joy

Food enough to eat

Every girl and boy

And grow to be the special one

Teacher, tailor, preacher or sailor

Doctor, dancer, referee,

Nurse or baker, candle stick maker

There's so many things to be

Wish I may, wish I might

Have a wish, I wish tonight

First of all

Here on Earth

We've been just

A children first

Every minute every day

We are throwing life away

There's a shadow in our heart

That is tearing us apart

And a children born in fears

See their childness disappear

Lost forever

If we all could see

Through the children's eyes

Strange as it might seem

We might realise

How beautiful this world could be

Imagine laughter in the air

Love in every heart

Sun where every child

This could be the start

Of our own heaven here on Earth

Teacher, tailor, preacher or sailor

Doctor, dancer, referee,

Nurse or baker, candle stick maker

There's so many things to be

Wish I may, wish I might

Have a wish, I wish tonight

First of all

Here on Earth

We have just been

A children first

If this world is to last

Then we've got to think children first

In the seeds our hope for peace tomorrow

Teacher, tailor, preacher or sailor

Doctor, dancer, referee,

Nurse or baker, candle stick maker

There's so many things to be

Wish I may, wish I might

Have one wish here tonight

This is what we want for ???

Free to be just you and me

DEILIG ER JORDEN
(Words: B.S. Ingemann)
 
* This song was performed live once for a Christmas concert in 1997.
 
Deilig er jorden,
Prektig er Guds himmel,
Skjønn er sjelenes pilgrimsgang.
Gjennom de fagre riker på jorden
Går vi til paradis med sang.
Tider skal komme,
Tider skal henrulle,
Slekt skal følge slekters gang;
Aldri forstummer tonen fra himlen
I sjelens glade pilgrimssang!
Englene sang den
Først for markens hyrder;
Skjønt fra sjel til sjel det lød:
Fred over jorden!
Menneske fryd deg.
Oss er en evig frelser født!

DET REGNAR I STOCKHOLM

 

* This song was performed live once in 1993 as a duet with Carola.

 

Jag går till telefonen 

En gång till

Jag vet ju var du finns, 

Kan numret utantill

Men ska jag våga ringa dig 

Och säga hur det känns 

När händerna på nummerskivan bränns 

Och när jag hör din röst så nära mig

Då inser jag med ens hur jag har saknat dig

Så mycket som jag vill ha sagt 

Av allt jag tänker på

Men det blir bara tomma ord ändå

Och det regnar här i Stockholm idag

Du har det säkert bättre än jag

Det händer inget särskilt, 

Jag har det ganska bra

Men det regnar här i Stockholm idag 

Vi gav nog aldrig kärleken en chans

Såa fel att något fint 

Ska bli en kort romans

Jag ville tala om för dig att saknaden är svår

Och hitta ord som gör 

Att du förstår

Och det regnar här i Stockholm idag

Och det regnar här i Stockholm idag

Och det är bara dig jag vill ha 

 


DID I LEAVE YOU BEHIND

* This song was performed live once on December 14th 2013 in Munich.

I can see you in a new tomorrow
I can see you in a brighter light
Where you are going now I cannot
follow
What I offer is the other side
Take your time now,
Carefully
Just keep me in your memory

I know that waiting often takes a while

Did I leave you behind
If you are on my mind
If I’m losing at night
Every night
Will you leave me behind
Am I still on your mind
I’m falling from both ends
Of the line

Still I see you in a new beginning
Coming to me in a different light
I wouldn’t fight if there could be
no winning
But Darling, sometimes many things
are right
So Take your time now, carefully
Keep me in your memory

Sometimes waiting wants to take a while

 


 

EN FIN LITEN BLOME  

 

* This song was performed live on T.V. on December 25th 1990

 

Ein fin liten blome i skogen eg ser, 

I granskogen diger og dryg, 

Og vent mellom mose og lyng 

Han seg ter

Han står der så liten og blyg

Sei, ottast du ikkje 

I skogen stå gøymd, 

Der skuggane 

Tyngja deg må?

Å nei, for av Herren 

Eg aldri vert gløymd,

Til ringaste blom han vil sjå

Men ynskjer du ikkje 

I prydhagen stå

Der folk kunne skoda på deg?

Å nei, eg trivst best 

Mellom ringe og små

Eg føddest til skogblome, eg

 


 

EN STEMME FOR DE STEMMELØSE  

 

* This song was performed live in Lillehammer on February 16th 1994 by Morten Harket, Sigvart Dagsland, Ole Edvard Antonsen, Arild Andersen and Karoline Kruger

 

Stemmer trenger seg på

Prikker og klør i din stengte hud

Bølger søker deg inn

For du er den beste kanalen

Stemmer ingen har hørt

Når deg fra tankenes himmelrand

Svar som bor i din hånd

Så våkna og heva sin stemme

Åh... En stemme for de stemmeløse

Åh... En stemme for de stemmeløse

Barn går tause i flokk

Flykter fra krigen på utpint jord

Gribber zoomer seg inn

Med stive og stirrende linser

Bilder trenger seg på

Navnløse øyne har ropt ditt navn

Ber deg ikkje om ord

Bare handlinger gjer de ein stemme

Åh... En stemme for de stemmeløse

Åh... En stemme for de stemmeløse

Barn som ingen har sett

Slekter i kommende tusen ledd

Venter tause sin arv

Den jord som meg ska forlata

Bilder blotter sin hud 

Ord fra Guds munn blir til kjøtt og blod

Blør fra såret du ser

I himmelen lever en stemme

Åh... En stemme for de stemmeløse

When will our dispute end?

When will this problem be solved?

My beloved, so close to my heart,

When will you come?

I have searched for you so many places,
but never been able to trace you.
You should have been here with me, my beloved
Just come to me for one night
You, my dearest friend
You have caused many problems for me
Just show me your face once, my beloved!
Everyone laugh at me me,
My flying bird
But my heart cries, my lover
I have searched for you by all the borders
Why will you burn my body with fire?
Since you left I have cried, my lover
I am Mahmoud, the greatest fool
I try to explain it all to very powerful people
Just listen to me in the name of God, my beloved.
Once you were my home
My Garden of Love
Thousand peaks your dome
So high up above
I have traced the path
The path to my love
Show your face again
From high up above
Come for just one night
I want you, my love
Show your sun, my light
Oh, come from above
Will I reach your heart
With songs of my love?
Why are we apart?
I'll climb up above
Tell me, have you heard
A word from my love
Come, bring news,
My bird from above
 

 

GLADE JUL  

 

* This song was performed live on December 25th 1990

 

Glade jul, hellige jul!

Engler daler ned i skjul

Hit de flyver med paradis grønt,

Hvor de ser hva for Gud er skjønt

Lønnlig i blant oss de går

Lønnlig i blant oss de går

Julefryd, evig fryd,

Hellig sang med himmelsk lyd!

Det er engler som hyrdene så,

Den gang Herren i krybben lå,

Evig er englenes sang

Evig er englenes sang

Fred på jord, fryd på jord,

Jesusbarnet i blant oss bor

Engler synger om barnet så smukt,

Han har himmeriks dør oppslukt

Salig er englenes sang

Salig er englenes sang

Salig fred, himmelsk fred,

Toner julenatt herned

Engler bringer 

Til store og små

Bud om ham som i krybben lå

Fryd deg hver sjel han har frelst!

Fryd deg hver sjel han har frelst! 

 

 

GOSPEL FROM A HEATHEN  

(English Version of "Fremmed Her")
 
* This song was performed live during several concerts
*  Transamerica FM - 27/10/95

 

I'm not an atheist

But I'll be an atheist for you
My holy brother,
You turn our temple into a tomb
I am no believer,
But I'll be faithful, I'll be true
Sweet little sister
To protect the seeds in your womb
I gave you my hand
But you handed me a gun.
Man, you taught me like a son.
I believe no longer in you
I do what I do
I've lost your point of view
I believe no longer in you
Man, your children know it too.
Well, I'm not a faschist
But I'll be a faschist for you
You're hollowed and radical
I'll break the spell of your taboos
I'm not a colour
But I'll be any colour for you
Skinhead, redneck, clean cut, hick.
To rob you of the fear you made your rule.
I gave you my hand
Man, you handed me a gun
You drilled me like a son
I believe no longer in you
I do what I do
I've lost your point of view
I believe no longer in you
Your children know it too

 


GOSPEL FROM HEAVEN  

 

* This song is the English version of Morten Harket's song "Fremmed Her" from the VOGTS VILLA album.

 

You take what you get

You take what you see
You never give in
If it still is more
You are still searching
You always get there
But you have no peace
You have nowhere to go
When returning home
I know you by now
I've heard your heartbeats
Also I have tried to walk
So take me with you
Where I once found peace
You remember where it was?
Even I'm a stranger here
Take me with you
If you know where that is
Because I'm a stranger here
 

 
HALLELUJAH  
(Words: Leonard Cohen)

 

* This song was performed live during Kosovo "Hjelp!" concert on April 11th 1998

 

Now I've heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Your faith was strong
But you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne,
And she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really,
What's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I did my best,
It wasn't much
I couldn't feel,
So I tried to touch
I've told the truth,
I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but
Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

KILLER QUEEN  

(Queen)

 

* This song was performed live once on December 1st 2001

 

She keeps Moet et Chandon

In her pretty cabinet

'Let them eat cake' she says

Just like Marie Antoinette

A built-in remedy

For Kruschev and Kennedy

At anytime an invitation

You can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes

Well versed in etiquette

Extraordinarily nice

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Recommended at the price

Insatiable an appetite

Wanna try?

To avoid complications

She never kept the same address

In conversation

She spoke just like a baroness

Met a man from China

Went down to Geisha Minah

Then again incidentally

If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris

For cars she couldn 't care less

Fastidious and precise

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Drop of a hat she's as willing as

Playful as a pussy cat

Then momentarily out of action

Temporarily out of gas

To absolutely drive you wild, wild

She's all out to get you

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Recommended at the price

Insatiable an appetite

Wanna try?

You wanna try


 

LAY LADY LAY

 

* This song was performed live once as a duet with Bjørn Eidsvåg

 

Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colours you have in your mind

I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine

Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while

Until the break of day, let me see you make me smile

Your clothes are dirty but your hands are clean

And I'm the best thing that you've ever seen

Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while

Why wait any longer for the world to begin

You can have your cake and eat it too

Why wait any longer for the one you love

When I'm standing in front of you

Stay lady stay, lay across my big brass bed

Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while

You long to reach for me in the night

You long to see me in the morning light

Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead

Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead

So maybe I'll stay when the night is still ahead

Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead

 


 

LET IT BE ME  

 

* This song was performed live once as a duet with Bjørn Eidsvåg - 05/07/1991

 

I bless the day I found you 

I want my arms around you 

An' so I beg you 

Let it be me 

Don't take this heaven from me 

If you must cling to someone 

Now an' forever 

Let it be me 

Each time we meet love 

I find complete love 

Without your sweet love 

What would life be ? 

So never leave me lonely 

Tell me that you love me only 

An' say you'll always 

Let it be me 

So never leave me lonely 

Tell me you love me only 

An' say you'll always 

Let it be me

 

 

LOVE OF MY LIFE  

 

* This song was performed live on September 27th 1993 and on December 1st 2001

 

Love of my life - you've hurt me

You've broken my heart and leave me

Love of my life can't you see me

Bring it back, bring it back

Don't take it away from me, because I don't know

What it means to me

Love of my life don't leave me

You've taken my love, you now desert me

Love of my life can't you see me

Bring it back, bring it back

Don't take it away from me, because ? don't know

What it means to me

You won't remember

When this is blown over

And everything's all by the way

When I get older

I will be there at your side to remind you

How I still love you - still love you

Back - hurry back

Please bring it back home to me

Because you don't know what it means to me

Love of my life

Love of my life

 

 

MITT HJERTE ALLTID VANKER 

(Text: Hans Adolph Brorson)

 

* This song was released on the soundtrack album SØLVGUTTENE SYNGER JULEN INN in 2001 as a collaboration between Morten Harket and the Norwegian choir Sølvguttene. Note that according to some sources, this song was recorded during a concert on December 26th 1987 (during which Morten Harket also sang "Her kommer julen").

 

 

Mitt hjerte alltid vanker i Jesu føderom,
Der samles mine tanker som i sin hovedsum.
Der er min lengsel hjemme, der har min tro sin skatt;
Jeg kan deg aldri glemme, velsignet julenatt!
Den mørke stall skal være mitt hjertes frydeslott,
Der kan jeg daglig lære å glemme verdens spott.
Der kan med takk jeg finne hvori min ros består,
Når Jesu krybbes minne meg rett til hjerte går.
Men under uten like, hvor kan jeg vel forstå
At Gud av himmerike i stallen ligge må!
At himlens fryd og ære, det levende Guds ord,
Skal så foraktet være på denne arme jord!
Mitt hjerte alltid vanker i Jesu føderom,
Der samles mine tanker som i sin hovedsum.
Der er min lengsel hjemme, der har min tro sin skatt;
Jeg kan deg aldri glemme, velsignet julenatt!

* Morten Harket performed this song on January 24th 2010 at the Operaen Oslo Opera House for the Dugnad For Haiti concert.

 

O bli hos meg! Nå er det aftentid,
Og mørket stiger - dvel, o Herre blid!
Når annen hjelp blir støv og duger ei,
Du, hjelpeløses hjelper, bli hos meg!
Snart svinner livets dag, det kvelder fort,
Og jordens lys alt mørkner og går bort,
Forandrings skygge følger tro min vei -
O du som ei forandres, bli hos meg!
Hver time trenger jeg din sterke vakt,
Kun for din nåde viker mørkets makt;
Hvor skal jeg vandre trygt foruten deg?
I mulm og solskinn, Herre, bli hos meg!
O la meg se ditt kors i dødens gys,
Driv mørket bort og vær meg livets lys!
Da skinner morgenrøden på min vei.
I liv og død, o Herre, bli hos meg!

 


O, JESUS DU SOM FYLLER ALT I ALLE
 

O, Jesus du som fyller alt i alle

Som rik på miskunnhet og nåde er.

Jeg lik Maria for Din fot vil falle.

For intet hvilested er skjønt som her.

Min Frelser kjær, ditt skjønne navn jeg nevner.

Ifra mitt hjertes dyp jeg priser Deg.

Og alle tvilens mørke skyer revner;

Din nådesol skal gjennomstråle meg.

Jeg er jo skjult i Dine sår og vunder.

Ditt ord nu er blitt lykte for min fot.

Når Du meg fører inn i prøvens stunder.

Din Hellig' ånd skal gi meg kraft og mot.

La ilden alltid i mitt hjerte brenne.

Fyll Du meg mer med din kjærlighet!

Så jeg igjen kan andre sjeler tenne

I brann for Deg, som skjenker liv og fred.

Jeg intet annet ønske har på ferden

Enn blott å være Deg et ærens kar,

At jeg må være lys og salt i verden

Og skinne som en stjerne ren og klar.

Du er mitt alt O, Jesus, Du er livet!

Hva enn meg møter, Du min lovsang er.

Du har jo him'lens herlighet meg givet,

I evighet skal jeg få være der.

STILLE NATT  

 

Stille natt, hellig natt

Alt er rolig, alt er skynnende

Rundt Din Hellig Mor og Barn

Hellig Barn saa søt og mild,

Sov i himmelske fred

Sov i himmelske fred.

Stille natt, hellig natt

Gjeters skjelving ved utsiktet

Aere strøm fra himmelen

Himmelske gjest syner Alleluja;

Christ Den Redder er født,

Christ Den Redder er født.

Stille natt, hellig natt

Sonn til Gud, kjaerlighets purt lys

Lysende straale fra hellig ansikt

Med soloppgangen av frelsende ynde

Jesus, Herrens Sonn, ved hellig fødelse,

Jesus, Herrens Sonn, ved hellig fødelse.

 

 

SWING LOW SWEET CHARIOT  

 

* This song was performed live on September 27th 1993

 

|: Swing low, sweet chariot,

Comin' for to carry me home! :| 

I looked over Jordan and what did I see,

Comin' for to carry me home!

A band of angels comin' after me,

Comin' for to carry me home! 

|: Swing low, sweet chariot,

Comin' for to carry me home! :| 

If you get there before I do,

Comin' for to carry me home,

Jess tell my friends 

that I'm acomin' too,

Comin' for to carry me home. 

|: Swing low, sweet chariot,

Comin' for to carry me home! :| 

I'm sometimes up and sometimes down,

Comin' for to carry me home,

But still my soul feels heavenly bound

Comin' for to carry me home!

YESTERDAY  

(John Lennon / Paul McCartney)

 

* This song was performed live on January 26th 2001

 

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away

Now it looks as though they're here to stay

Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half to man I used to be,

There's a shadow hanging over me.

Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say.

I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.

Now I need a place to hide away.

Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say.

I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.

Now I need a place to hide away.

Oh, I believe in yesterday.

 


 

YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND  

(James Taylor)

 

* This song was performed live

 

When you're down and troubled

And you need a helping hand

And nothing, oh, nothing is going right,

Just close your eyes and think of me

And soon I will be there

To brighten even your darkest night

You just call out my name

And, you know, wherever I am

I'll come running

To see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall

All you've got to do is call

And I'll be there, yeah yes I'll be there

You've got a friend

If the sky high above you

Should grow dark and full of clouds

And that old cold north wind should begin to blow

Just keep your poor head together now

And call my name out loud

Pretty Soon I'll be knocking on your door

You just call out my name

And, you know, wherever I am

I'll come running

To see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall

All you've got to do is call on me now

And I'll be there, yeah yes I'll be there

Well, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend

When people can be so cold

They hurt you yes and desert ya,

Well, they take your soul if you let them,

Yeah, but don't you let them

You just call out my name

And, you know, wherever I am

I'll come running as fast as I can

To see you again

(Oh Yes don't you know 'bout)

Winter, spring, summer or fall

(Baby) All you've got to do is call on me now

I'll be there, yeah yes I'll be there

You've got a friend

You've got yourself a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

Oh You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

Walking, talking. friend

You've got a friend in me

No matter how low you may go sometimes

You've got a friend in me

Or take some constellation for one thing now

Its good to know yeah yeah yeah

You've got a friend
