Up On The Roof

(Up on the roof…)
(Up on the roof…)
When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
(Up on the roof…)
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
(Up on the roof…)
On the roof it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now
When I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
(Up on the roof…)
I get away from the hustling crowds
And all that rat race noise down in the street
(Up on the roof…)
On the roof’s the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof…)
At night the stars put on a show for free
And darling you can share it all with me
I keep-a tellin’ you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a Paradise that’s trouble-proof
(Up on the roof…)
And if this world starts getting you down
There’s room enough for two up on the roof
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof…)
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof…)
Oh, come on baby
(Up on the roof…)
Oh, come on honey
(Up on the roof…)

Never My Love

You ask me if there’ll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never, my love
(Ah)
Never, my love
You wonder if this heart of mine
Will lose its desire for you
Never, my love
(Ah)
Never, my love
What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life depends
On you?
(On you)
(Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da)
Never, my love
Never, my love
You say you fear I’ll change my mind
That I won’t require you
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
How can you think love will end
When I’ve asked you to spend your whole life
With me?
(With me)
(With me)
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
Never, my love
(Never, never my love)
Never, my love
(Never, my love)
Never, my love
(Never, never my love)

Crystal Blue Persuasion

Look over yonder
What do you see?
The sun is a’rising
Most definitely
A new day is coming,
Ooh, ooh
People are changing
Ain’t it beautiful,
Ooh, ooh
Crystal blue persuasion
Better get ready
To see the light
Love,
Love is the answer,
Ooh, ooh
And that’s all right
So don’t you give up now,
Ooh, ooh
So easy to find
Just look to your soul
And open your mind
Crystal blue persuasion,
Mmm, mmm
It’s a new vibration
Crystal blue persuasion
Crystal, blue persuasion
Maybe tomorrow
When he looks down
On every green field,
Ooh, ooh
And every town
All of his children
And every nation
They’ll be
Peace and good
Brotherhood
Crystal blue persuasion, yeah
Crystal blue persuasion, aha
Crystal blue persuasion, aha
Crystal blue persuasion, aha

I was wandering around YouTube today and stumbled upon this old favorite…  And, yes, it is one of the songs you can find off of my “Poems” page and more specifically off of my “Song Lyrics And Videos” page.  The lyrics are awesome and well worth reading after listening to / viewing the video and then (again) during the song.

If You Could Read My Mind

If you could read my mind love,
What a tale my thoughts could tell.
Just like an old time movie
About a ghost
From a wishing well.
In a castle dark
Or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet.
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as I’m a ghost
That you can’t see.
If I could read your mind love,
What a tale your thoughts could tell.
Just like a paperback novel,
The kind the drugstore would sell.
When you reach the part
Where the heartaches come
The hero would be me.
The heroes often fail.
And you won’t read that book again
Because the ending’s
Just to hard to take.
I walk away
Like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three way script.
Enter number two,
A movie queen
To play the scene
Of bringing all
The good things out in me,
But for now love
Lets be real.
I never knew
I could feel this way
And I’ve got to say
That I just don’t get it.
I don’t know where
We went wrong
But the feelings gone
And I just can’t get it back.
If you could read my mind love,
What a tale my thoughts could tell.
Just like an old time movie
About a ghost
From a wishing well.
In a castle dark
Or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
But the story
Always ends.
And if you read
Between the lines
You’ll know that I’m
Just trying
To understand
The feelings
That you left.
I never thought
I could feel this way
And I got to say
That I just don’t get it.
I don’t know where we went wrong
But the feelings gone
And I just can’t get it back.
