----------- HERE SHE COMES - LYRICS ♪ -----------

I Call Out Your Name
© Hazel O`Connor

Wish I could just pick up the telephone and talk to you
Chat about some silly thing that happened lately like we used to do
I know you don't live here anymore empty house is not a home
I know things will get better so I'm told
But I'm always always missing you

Chorus
I call out your name wish you were here
Call out your name can you hear me
Calling to you from this deep dark place calling to you
Wonder will I ever see your face again

You used to say we're making memories of together
Just for future times
Now that time has come and you are gone
I shuffle through the pictures in my mind
Sometimes I don't know I don't know
What on earth can I do
Sometimes I wonder if I can go on
It's dark in the shadows where once we shone

Chorus

Hear your voice again
See you smile again
Spend some time again
Drink some tea again
You and me again

Chorus

TO BE FREED
© Hazel O`Connor - A. Karner

I was drowning in my anger and my mystery,
someone once told me
it's a diver you must learn to be
so I dived to the bottom of the ocean
I made friends with the things that
I feared, and didn't I rise to the tides
and I was freed

I was climbing up the mountain with
My excess baggage getting me down, down, down
My strength had all deserted me, mistakes
They weigh so heavily, Lord I fell to the ground
Then I looked inside my suitcase full
Of trouble and strife and all my victories
And sorrows of my past life and didn't I rise
and I was freed

I was dreaming we were eagles, flying
high, high to the edge of the sky
we vowed before the universe, stars
lit the space like some great church
where many candles shine
and your eyes were bright and firey
like the day that we met, I remembered
how I felt before our war made me forget.
And didn't I rise to the sky
and I was freed

Now I realise, these obstacles
that we find - are teachers and the guides -
in my life, in my life, in my

I still love you, and I know
you still love me too

To be freed...

DON'T YOU CALL ME DARLING
© Hazel O`Connor

You're walking to me, you know that you're fine
And I am always happy talking to you, you know I'll always make time
Just don't think because I like your menu I don't need to eat
Why would I want to take your ride when i got my own feet

Chorus
Don't you call me darling I'm definetly not your baby
Don't you call me darling I've had enough of players
Players and the game

I have been ruined by a liar who said he'd always be there
And he would tell me his long tall stories he'd be pretending to share
Convincing on the phone he would moan ''Oh baby I miss you''
But when I turned up at his home
He had some other girl on the go, oh no

Chorus

Je te vois marcher, marcher vers moi, je sais que tu es beau
Je suis heureuse, toujours de te parler encore et encore d'être là pour toi

Et meme si j'aime ton menu merci je n'ai plus faim
Arrête de vouloir me diriger, alors que je suis une grande fille

Je te vois marcher, marcher vers moi, je sais que tu es beau
Je suis heureuse, toujours de te parler encore et encore d'être là pour toi

Et meme si j'aime ton menu merci je n'ai plus faim
Arrête de vouloir me diriger, alors que je suis une grande fille

Chorus

Ne m'appelle pas chérie, je ne suis sûrement pas ton bébé
Ne m'appelle pas chérie, j'en ai marre de jouer de jouer à ce jeu

STILL OF THE NIGHT
© Hazel O'Connor

In the still of the night I hear all lovers dreams
I can reach out my hand and touch the places you've been
I can hear your whisper floating through the air caressing my hair
I can feel your mystery so real and so rare
For one magic moment we are there
In the still of the night

I will try to be mindful every minute every day
You see the gift of time is ours if we choose to stay
Stay in the here and now no past can remain shake off our chains
We're in the lost and found and now we are claimed
And for one magic moment we are there again
In the still of the night

And all these times of our lives and all these riddles and rhymes
Make me come to realise how brightly we can shine in our own time
In the still of the night

 

MY FRIEND JACK
© Hazel O`Connor - A. Karner

How many roads had I gone, I got to
Feeling like I can't go on and on
Lord it seems, it gets so lonesome when
You're following dreams
And why was I on that road, where
The angels fear, like a fool I chose
To give a stranger a ride in the night,
He said, "heh listen here darling, I'll
Open your eyes"

I've been up to the bottom, and down to the top
Better not give up until you drop.
There's a time to live, there's a time to die
My friend Jack said, he'd tell me why.

You see Jack was a guy back in Vietnam,
He had a key to survival, to dream of a better time,
And boy, joy is a thing of the past
You gotta believe in the future or you won't last

Oh I believe, I believe in love
Oh I believe in the lord above
Oh I believe in a better life for
You and me and you

Well, the next day he was gone, was he dead
Or had he up and run,
And talk with him all his hopes and his dreams
Me I was left with my nightmares and screams

I've been up to the bottom, and down to the top
Better not give up until you drop.
There's a time to live, there's a time to die
My friend Jack said, he'd tell me why.

Well I made it back from that bloody war,
My future what had it all been for
No heroes welcome and my woman had left.
See my name is Jack in case you hadn't guess

Oh I believe, I believe in love
Oh I believe in the lord above
Oh I believe in a better life for
You and me and you

So little lady when your feeling lost
Remember old Jack, remember the cost
So you got no shoes and you wail and weep
But remember there's a guy who ain't got no feet

GOOD MORNING, HEARTACHE
©
Irene Higginbotham, Ervin Drake, Dan Fisher

Goodmorning heartache
You old gloomy sight
Goodmorning heatache
Thought we said goodbye last night
I turned and tossed 'til it seemed you had gone
But here you are with the dawn
Wish I'd forget you, but you're here to stay
It seems I met you when my love went away
Now everyday I start by saying to you
Goodmorning heartache, what's new?

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you nohow
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Stright through Sunday blues
Goodmorning heartache
Here we go again
Goodmorning heartache
You're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hanging around
Goodmorning heartache
Sit down

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you nohow
Just leave me alone
I've got those Monday blues
Stright through Sunday blues
Goodmorning heartache
Here we go again
Goodmorning heartache
You're the one who knew me when
Might as well get used to you hanging around
Goodmorning heartache
Sit down

MY WORLD (UPSIDE DOWN)
© Hazel O`Connor

Memories of days as we walked on green hillsides
Scents of summer were high
We lay down so pleased with ourselves in the long grass
Eyes full of love, life's full of passion, passion for love
Passion for power, passion turned sour

And now I sit biding my time
Don't ask me why I've no tears to cry
'Cos they've turned my world upside down
Yes they've turned my world upside down
And we'll never see those green hills again

Check out the air today, switch on the radio
I'm bored and I wish I were home
Lay down beside me, oh hold me, enfold me
Hold me I'm scared, so scared of dying
Dying and...dying oh heavens above

And now I sit biding my time
Don't ask me why I've no tears to cry
'Cos they've turned my world upside down
Yes they've turned my world upside down

And we'll never see those green hills again
I'm afraid,god I'm afraid
Afraid of this monster
The future we made
Dark closes in, there's no air to breathe
Lord what I wouldn't give for one moment to really live

 

NE ME QUITTE PAS
© Jacques Brel


Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit déjà
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le cœur du bonheur
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Moi je t'offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Où il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu'après ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D'or et de lumière
Je ferai un domaine
Où l'amour sera roi
Où l'amour sera loi
Où tu seras reine
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je t'inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants-là
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs cœurs s'embraser
Je te raconterai
L'histoire de ce roi
Mort de n'avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
D'un ancien volcan
Qu'on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brûlées
Donnant plus de blé
Qu'un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai là
A te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et à t'écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas.

PERFECT DAY
© Lou Reed

Just a perfect day
drink Sangria in the park
And then later
when it gets dark, we go home

Just a perfect day
feed animals in the zoo
Then later
a movie, too, and then home

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spend it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
it's such fun

Just a perfect day
you made me forget myself
I thought I was
someone else, someone good

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

 

GOING HOME
© Hazel O`Connor

Sometimes it feels like i'm never gonna make it back there
Memory fades as I move away
Too many different places too many different faces
Gonna take my space aboard a boat of dreams and I'm sailing away

I'm going home across the ocean
Gotta get home been gone too long its where I wanna be
I'm going home up the mountain
Gotta get back where my spirit can run free

Imagine all the flowers we planted they will be blooming
Butterflies waltz across blue sky
The colours overwhelm me
The sense of you it sends me
I just want to see your bright blue eyes smiling back at me

Going home across the ocean
Gotta get home been gone too long its where I wanna be
Going home back to the mountain
Gotta get back where my
spirit can run free

See the ship sail out of the harbour
She is leaving then she is gone
She sails across the ocean wide
And on the other side comes into sight
Joyful cries it's alright
Here she comes
HERE SHE COMES!
