A KIND OF HUSH
THERE'S A KIND OF HUSH (All Over The World)
There´s a kind of hush
all over the world tonight
All over the world
you can hear the sounds of lovers in love
You know what I mean
Just the two of us
and nobody else in sight
There´s nobody else and I´m feeling good
Just holding you tight
So listen very carefully
Closer now and you will see what I mean
It isn´t a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear I love you
For ever and ever
(Repeat)
 
 
YOU

You are the one who makes me happy
When everything else turns to grey
Yours is the voice that wakes me mornings
And sends me out into the day
You are the crowd that sits quiet
Listening to me
And all the mad sense that I make
You are one of the few things
worth remembering
And since it's all true
How could anyone mean more to me
Than you
Sorry if sometimes I look past you
There's no one beyond your eyes
Inside my head wheels are turning
Hey, sometimes I'm not so wise
You are my heart and my soul
My inspiration
Just like the old love song goes
You are one of the few things
worth remembering
And since it's all true
How could anyone mean more to me
Than you
 
SANDY
Looking at you
I'm almost home again
Something in you
Puts me at ease
Yes, I know that you're
Suspicious of me
Do I mean the things I say?
You know I've been in love before
That much is true
But though I've been in love before
It wasn't with you
Ooh, Sandy
Could we spend the day together
You know how rainy weather
Gets me down when I'm alone
You, Sandy
You gotta be a friend today
An hour with you would
Chase the winter away
Being with you
I'm like a child again
Your eyes can see
Clearer than mine
No one ever made me quite so aware
No one ever took the time
The time it took surprises me
Nothing's the same
As if my life began again
Hearing your name
Ooh, Sandy
Could we spend the day together?
You know how rainy weather
Gets me down when I'm alone
You, Sandy
You gotta be a friend today
An hour with you would
Chase the winter away
 
 
GOOFUS
I was born on a farm out in Ioway
A flaming youth I was bound I would
I packed my grip and I grabbed
my saxophone
Can't read notes, but I play
anything by ear
I made up tunes on the sounds
that I used to hear
When I'd start to play folks used to say
"Sounds a little Goofus to me"
Cornfed chords appeal to me
I like rustic harmony
Hold a note and change the key
Hey but that's "Goofus"
Not according to the rules
That you learn in music schools
But the folks just dance like fools
They sure go for "Goofus"
Got a job but I just couldn't keep it long
The leader said that I played all
the music wrong
So I stepped out with an outfit of my own
Got together a new kind of orchestree
And we all played just the same
"Goofus" harmony
And I must admit we made a hit
"Goofus" has been lucky for me
 
 
CAN'T SMILE WITHOUT YOU
You know I can't smile without you
Can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew, what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
You came along, just like a song
And brightened my day
Well who'd a' believed
That you were part of a dream
Now it all seems, light years away and
You know I can't smile without you
Can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew, what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
Now some people say, that happiness takes
So very long to find
Well I'm finding it hard
Leaving your love behind me --and you see I
You know I can't smile without you
Can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew, what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
You know I can't smile without you
Can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sing
I'm finding it hard to do anything
You see I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
If you only knew, what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you...
 
I NEED TO BE IN LOVE

The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know
I used to say "No promises, let's keep it simple"
But freedom only helps you say goodbye
It took a while for me to learn that nothing comes for free
The price I paid is high enough for me
*  I know I need to be in love
    I know I've wasted too much time
    I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world
    And fool enough to think that's what I'll find
+  So here I am with pockets full of good intentions
    But none of them will comfort me tonight
    I'm wide awake at 4 a.m. without a friend in sight
    I'm hanging on a hope but I'm all right
 repeat *
 repeat +
 repear *
 
ONE MORE TIME
I'm going way down south to Louisiana
Well, I'll just close my eyes
And everything's alright
And though I'm really far away
I'll make my get away
And no one need really
Know that I've been gone
One more time for the good times
That far out weigh the bad
One more time for the good times
When love was all we had
I'm going way down south to Baton Rouge
Well, I'll just close the door
And turn out all the lights
And all the images dance by
Of folks and friends who lie
Back home where things are slow
And easy going
One more time for the good times
That far out weigh the bad
One more time for the good times
When love was all
When love was all
When love was all we had
One more time
 
BOAT TO SAIL

You're up state, up late, and city fed
I'm a California label
From the top of my head.
Forever, ah
See a lot of open sky
When the sun goes down
There's a hot, lot of loving when you come
Around, to free me, ah
In a boat to sail, boat to sail, away ah
All those letters mailed from a
Boat to sail, away ah
We are riding in a boat to sail
Bare foot, coconut and supermild
Jamaica take a look
At your own child
Forget not
Brian Wilson songs are never left behind
Don't you worry baby, you're a friend of mine
For so long
From a boat to sail, boat to sail, away ah
All those letters mailed, from a
Boat to sail, away ah
We are riding in a boat to sail
 
I HAVE YOU
I have always been a dreamer
Followed visions of my own
I was born to belong
To the lines of a song
And make them my home
I believe in happy endings
Though I've only known a few
For as rare as they are
Like a bright falling star
I found one in you
Sometimes All the world can seem so
Friendless
And the road ahead so
Endless
And the dream so far away
Sometimes
When I'll almost
To surrender
Then I stop
And I remember
I have you
To save my day
Often my imagination
Has me reaching out too far
When I fell you were there
With your hand in the air
You knew from the start
Sometimes
After all you've done
To save me
Thru the love you freely
Gave me
Every step along the way
Going
And in truth, it comes from
Knowing
I have you
To save my day
Sometime
Feeling helpless
When I held you
Wishing words would come
To tell you
I have you
To save my day
 
BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO
Don't take your love
Away from me
Don't you leave my heart
In misery
If you go
Then I'll be blue
Cause breakin' up is hard to do
Remember when
You held me tight
And you kissed me
All through the night
Think of all
That we been through
Breakin' up is hard to do
They say that breakin' up
Is hard to do
Now I know, I know
That it's true
Don't say that this is the end
Instead of breakin' up
I wish that we were makin' up again
I beg of you
Don't say good-bye
Can't we give our love
Another try
Come on baby
Lets start a new
Breakin' up is hard to do
I beg of you
Don't say good-bye
Can't we give our love
Another try
Come on baby
Lets start a new
Breakin' up is hard to do
Breakin' up is hard to do
