"Offering / "Ticket to Ride" lyrics
 

Invocation


For those whose eyes would see
Render them in faith to me
For all those seeking peace
In my arms their strife shall cease
And place in me the agony you bear
Nothing can impair the perfect love I bring
In a simple offering

Your Wonderful Parade


Your wonderful parade
Moving thru the towns that rise and then they fade
Over streets that pass the houses where youve stayed
Your wonderful parade
 
Your daily masquerade
Paper masks behind this face that you have made
Crumble down upon foundation that you've laid
Your daily masquerade
 
(*) Stand in line try to climb
Meet your wife at cocktail time
Surely you should try and choose a better way to fall
Your marvelous charade
Never could be worth the prices that youve paid
Blindness is a part of every game youve played
Your marvelous charade
 
Repeat (*)
 
Your daily masquerade
Your wonderful parade

Someday


Someday, rested from hours of sleeping
We'll stay safely behind what we're keeping
You'll seem warmer than I had remembered you
Lying so close I'll be able to feel you breathe
I could never leave
 
One day, when I am able to love you
I'll come back from wherever I've been to
I'll see you looking the same as you always have
Lovely, so lovely, I'll cling to the love you give
So I'll start to live
 
Someday is coming
If I believe it
Someday always brings the good life you knew ...
Ever back to you
 
(*) How I need you
Someday, all I can give you is someday
Someday, all I can offer is someday
Please say that you'll be waiting when someday comes
Promise me this and a kiss, to keep what you are
Always close to me
 
Repeat (*)

Get Together


Love is but a song we sing
And fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains sing
Or make the angels cry
Though the dove is on the wing
You need not know why
 
(*) Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Love one another right now
 
Some will come and some will go
This will surely pass
When the one who left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass
 
Repeat (*)
 
If you hear the song we sing,
You will understand
You hold the key to love and fear
It's in your trembling hand
One key unlocks them both, you know
It's at your command
 
Repeat (*)
 
Love one another right now
Love one another right now

All Of My Life


All of my life I have been waiting
For just one boy
And all of my life I have been waiting
For all the joy of having
 
(*) Someone that I can call my own
Who'll come to my side when I am all alone
And now you are here and I've found a whole new world
Has opened for me
A world filled with joy
A world filled with all your love
Eternally
 
(**) For you say you're mine
You'll love me all the time
Night and day
Come what may, and all of my life
You'll be my own
 
I just want
 
Repeat (*)
Repeat (**)

Turn Away


I guess you what it's all about
All the answers seem so clear to you
You know just exactly what do you want to do
And never allow a feeling of doubt
 
I guess you see where your road can lead
And all the pain that you have in a store
For now you have chosen to look every door
And find on your own what you think you need
 
(*) Turn away, find a way your own
I'll be there waiting here to say
Turn away, find a way your own
I'll still be calling your name
 
And if tried to show you how
Tomorrow is never like yesterday
Would you change your mind and see things my way
Or are you afraid that I'll bring you down?
 
Repeat (*) four times

Ticket To Ride

I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today
Yeh
The boy that's driving me mad
 is going away.

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
 and he don't care.

He said that living with me
 was bringing him down
Yeh
He would never be free
 when I was around.

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
 and he don't care.

Don't know why he's riding so high
He oughta do right

He oughta do right by me
Before he gets to saying goodbye
He oughta do right
He oughta do right by me

I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today
Yeh
The boy that's driving me mad
 is going away.

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
 and he don't care
 he don't care.
 

Don't Be Afraid


Love, don't be afraid to love and get love returned
Don't be afraid to tell everyone you're learned
(*) That love is a groovy thing
It knows how to make you sing
Ant it fills up your life with sunshine and joy
Don't be afraid to give all you've got to give
One of these days you'll find that's the way to live
And living is what we all were put on this earth to do
So come on and live and be happy
 
Don't be afraid to love
 
Repeat (*)
 
Oh, live and be happy
Don't be afraid to love
Don't be afraid to love
Don't be afraid to love
Don't be afraid to love

What's The Use


Getting away from all the things that need doing
Lazily here to lose the afternoon
Lying around here on the ground
It's as close to getting up as I can go
 
Taking a chance to free myself from my worries
Cover them well enough and no one sees
Nobody knows until they show
And the only thing to do is try to cover them again
 
(*) Hurry yourself, whats the use?
Mountains of wealth, I refuse
To be somebodys slave for a dime
Ive got plenty of mountains
Im lookin to find, spending my time
 
Lying around, here on the ground
It's as close to getting up as I can go
Pleasing myself is all that really needs doing
Everything else begins but never ends
 
Listen to me and youll agree
That a man is better off
If he has come to realize
 
Repeat (*) twice

All I Can Do


Ooh, ooh, ba
Yesterday I thought youd stay
I thought youd see things my way
But now I see my hopes may be dead
 
I should have known when you said
I was the one you wanted
Wanting meant nothing more than today
 
(*) All I can do is cry over you
And hope you return someday
All I can do is cry over you
Ever since youve gone away
 
Every road that I follow
Leaves me with no tomorrow
I need someone to show me the way
 
Repeat (*)
 
Baba, baba, baba
Baba, baba, baba

Eve


Eve I can't believe
That you could mean
What you just said
Think of what you are
How very far you are from being real
 
Look into the mirror
Nothing there to see
Eve I can't believe
You'd really leave him
 
(*) Notice how her image saddens
How lonely she's become
Just once I'd like to see her happy
Before the winter comes
 
Eve, I wouldn't lie
The open sky is not your home
Wide as it may be
Reality is here among the stones
 
Thorns among the roses
Add to what is real
Eve, you are a rose
Among the thorns here
 
Repeat (*)
 
I wish her only good times
Before the winter comes

Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing


Sing, sing
 
Who's that stompin' all over my face?
Where's that sillhouette I'm trying to trace?
And who's putting sponge in the bells I once rung
And taking my gypsy before she's begun
 
Just singing and a dreaming of what's in my mind
Before I can take home what's rightfully mine
Joinin' and a listenin' and talkin' in rhymes
Stoppin' the feeling to wait for the times
 
(*) Who's saying maybe
That don't mean a thing"
'Cause nowadays Clancy can't even sing
Sing, sing
 
Who's all hung-up on that happiness thing?
Who's trying to tune all the bells they ring?
And who's in the corner and down on the floor
With pencil and paper just counting the score
 
Who's trying to act like he's just in-between?
The night isn't black, if you know that it's green
Don't bother looking, you're too blind to see
Who's coming on like he wanted to be?
 
Repeat (*)
 
Who's coming home on the old 9 to 5?
Who's got the feeling here to keep him alive?
Though havin' it, sharin' it, ain't quite the same
You painted it golden nugget, you can't lay claim
 
Who's seeing eyes through the crack in the floor?
There it is baby, don't you worry no more
Who should be sleepin', but 's writing this song
Wishin' and a-hopin' he weren't so damned wrong
 
Repeat (*) twice

Benediction


Unto you
In the voice of love
Through the song we sing
An offering
