Lyrics

Gypsy
(Box, Byron)

I was only seventeen
I fell in love with a gypsy queen
She told me: "Hold on"
Her father was the leading man
Said: "You're not welcome on our land"
And then as a foe, he told me to go

He took me to a little shack
And put a whip across my back
Then told her: "Leave me"
I was out for quite a time
Came back with her on my mind
Sweet little girl
She means all the world

Oh, I want my gypsy queen
Will she still be torn between
Her father and lover
One day I will go to him
Strong enough to fight and win
The kind of a man
That he'll understand

Walking In Your Shadow
(Newton, Byron)

I'm walking in your shadow
Ever since you went away
And the clock on the wall
Really hasn't very much to say
Oh, you left me bleeding
And left me needing you

In so very many ways
I was trying to attract your mind
But I'm the lonely one
'Cause I've had to leave it all behind

Lied and deceiving
Why should I be grieving you

Ride on a golden wave
Set sail for the sun
Make every cloud your slave
Don't be alone

When I get back from my trip
Of the ocean wide
Still walking in your shadow
And still looking for somewhere to hide

If I am worse off
It's all because of you
It's all because of you
top

Come Away Melinda
(Hellerman,Minkoff)

Daddy, daddy, come and look
See what I have found
A little ways away from here
While digging in the ground

Come away Melinda
Come in and close the door
It's nothing, just a picture-book
They had before the war

Daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, come and look
Why, there's four or five
Little Melinda girls
Inside my picture book

Come away Melinda
Come in and close the door
There were lots of little girls like you
Before they had the war

Oh Daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, hurry do
Why, there's someone
In a pretty dress
She's all grown up like you
Won't you tell me why

Come away Melinda
Come in and close the door
That someone is your Mummy
You had before the war

Daddy, daddy, tell me if you can
Why can't things be
The way they were
Before the war began

Come away Melinda
Come in and close the door
The answer lies in yesterday
Before they had the war
top

Lucy Blues
(Box, Byron)

Well, the very first time
I saw you darling
Not one single word
Would come to my lips

Yes, the very first time
I saw you darling
Not one single word
Would come to my lips

You see, I was so afraid
You wouldn't love me
I wanna tell you right now
I was frightened right down
To my fingertips

So baby, when you went away
That unlucky day last September
I was like a little lost boy
In the wilderness
Baby baby baby ...
When you went away
I was like a little lost boy
In the wilderness

And I've just been sitting here
Thinking of everybody
I've ever known
Well, you know
I still love you the best
Yeah, the best
top

Dreammare
(Newton)

Grinning demons, smiling sideways
Laughing in my face
Here within my troubled sleep
There’s such a lonely place
Running fast but never moving
I can’t get away
Strange but realistic objects
Making me their prey

Then it’s gone as fast as it came
Evil dream
Changing like the sun turn to rain
It would seem

La la la la la ...

Dining with the gods of beauty
On a distant shore
Tasting fruits of untold sweetness
Never seen before
Dancing stars with crystal voices
Beckon with their eyes
Unicorn of many colours
Rides to paradise

Then it’s gone as fast as it came
Peaceful scene
Changing like the sun turns to rain
It would seem

La la la la la ...

Sleepless nights that last a lifetime
Crucify my head
Dreams of peace and then disaster
Wish that I were dead
Looking for the end of darkness
Seeking out the day
For escape with speed unthought of
Bearing me away

Then it’s gone as fast as it came
Peaceful scene
Changing like the sun turns to rain
It would seem

La la la la la ...

Come into my dream

Real Turned On
(Box, Byron)

Girl, before you go now
There's one thing I wanted to do
That's get you to come back
Because I wanna make love to you

Got me real turned on
Yes, you have

But there's something in your eyes
Telling me you have to go
Something in your eyes
But you're trying not to let it show

Got me real turned on

Next time you come over
I'll buy you a bottle of wine
Just take a little drink
And everything will turn out fine
Yes, it will

Whoa baby, do you know
What I've got in mind
Can you guess what it is
Or do you want it on the line

Got me real turned
Got me real turned
Got me real turned
Got me real turned on
top

I'll Keep On Trying
(Box, Byron)

You came to me
With all of your lies
And I was taken in so well
It took me quite a time
To see the disguise
You made it very hard to tell
Now here you are again
But you're begging in vain
'Cause I really don't want to know

You came to me
With a little bit of charm
You had me down on my knees
I didn't really think
There was any harm
But all you ever did was tease
You took all the love
That I ever had to give
There was nothing left to show

Well, I remember everything
Everything around me
The long dark of winter
Till the breath of spring
Came close enough to drown me

So I'm gonna keep on trying
Till I feel like dying
And I lay down and pass away
But that won't happen till tomorrow
And by then I can
Borrow another day
So I'm gonna keep on trying
top

Wake Up(Set Your Sights)
(Box, Byron)

Wake up, set your sights
For never shall we fail
Stand up for your rights
And justice will prevail

You're listening
Through endless nights
And decision is your goal
So wake up, set your sights
Oh, the time is right for your role
Yeah, or your role

Wake up, wake up, wake up
Set your sights
Never, never, never
Shall we fail
Stand up, stand up, stand up
For your rights
Justice, justice, justice
Will prevail

There in the morning
Flying over the hills
While men are yawning
They are crushed by our wills
Never have I witnessed
People in fear
Not like today
Not in many a year

Go kill another
There are more close behind
"No" screams a mother
"Are you out of your mind"
Though they are shattered
They just don't seem to yield
Bodies are scattered
In all parts of the field

Oh no, did I tell you
What would happen if you tried
"Oh god, stop this killing!"
Said a young man
Before he died
