Lyrics

Set us Free

 

Green painted big soft tambourine,

cool changing strings exciting me.

I've been good, as good as i can be,

all these sounds are changing me.

 

People seem to fight someone,

music is their army now.

I've been good, as good as i can be,

all these sounds are changing me,

changing me.

 

Green painted big soft tambourine,

cool changing strings exciting me.

Something good has happened to us,

the big band is playing blues,

Set us Free,

Set us Free.

 

You've got to Set Us Free, Set Us Free.

Blues, come on, play blues yeah, blues band

come on big band, play blues tonight,

play blues tonight, play blues tonight,

Yeah!

Peeping John

 

Johnny was a Peeping Tom and he was very barmy,

but he didn't know that he was going to lose his money.

Shelly was a simple girl and she was very funny,

Johnny followed her down to the park but she was crying.

 

"Girl, why are you crying?

Dry your tiny eyes.

Girl, now, look at me!

What's wrong? Tell me!"

 

Shelly was scared 'cos she didn't know this man,

he was too much friendly, he was trying to lend a hand.

But she recalled his face to his voyeur fame,

so she started screaming, the policemen heard her crying.

 

"Girl, why are you screaming?

Dry your tiny eyes.

Girl, now, look at me!

What's wrong? Tell me!"

 

"Girl, come on, tell me your problem!

Please, don't be scared of this man!"

"No man, i call the policeman, 

jail is waiting for you!"

 

Now he is in jail,

deceived by his fame.

Johnny, look at me,

what's wrong? Teel me.

Wait

 

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home.
I've been away now, oh, how I've been alone.

Wait till I come back to your side,
we'll forget the tears we cried.

But if your heart breaks, don't wait, turn me away.
And if your heart's strong, hold on, I won't delay.

Wait till I come back to your side,
we'll forget the tears we cried.

I feel as though you ought to know
that I've been good, as good as I can be.
And if you do, I'll trust in you
and know that you will wait for me.

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home,
I've been away now, oh, how I've been alone.

Wait till I come back to your side,
we'll forget the tears we cried.

I feel as though you ought to know
that I've been good, as good as I can be.
And if you do, I'll trust in you
and know that you will wait for me.

But if your heart breaks, don't wait, turn me away.
And if your heart's strong, hold on, I won't delay.

Wait till I come back to your side,
we'll forget the tears we cried.

It's been a long time, now I'm coming back home,
I've been away now, oh, how I've been alone.


Keep On

 

I've got potential,

i can be what i want to be,

i am essential,

and if you don't believe it run and run and pray.

Yeah!

 

The sun is dying

because my eyes are tired of the light,

the water's flowing

because my mind needs a gentle sound to fly high.

Yeah!

 

Keep on Baby,

i'm not dying.

Keep on Baby, 

you will cry, yeah!

 

The fire is burning

because my skin now is too cold.

The birds are flying

because the sky is my tv.

Yeah!

 

Keep on Baby,

i'm not dying.

Keep on Baby, 

you will cry.

You're gonna die because you need me,

you're gonna cry because you're not free,

if you want your future

you got to save me.

 

Keep on Baby,

i'm not dying.

Keep on Baby, 

you will cry.

You're gonna die because you need me,

you're gonna cry because you're not free,

if you want your future

you got to save me.

Imaginary Journey

 

Here under the rain

colours are all the same,

you're lost and you can't find your own 

way home.

 

There is the red king,

he knows all the ways, 

but he had lost his soul long time ago.

 

Aaaaah,

you're lost and you can't find your own

way home.

Aaaaah,

his soul is back to scare you, you won't go.

 

You look in his eyes,

he looks in your mind, 

whatever you can see is back in time.

There, over the hills,

you see the shining sun,

and he disappeared, he was not real.

 

Aaaaah,

you feel a strange feelind, you understand.

Aaaaah,

now you're awake, and it was a dream.
