Meet Me By the Water

Would you meet me by the water, baby
We'll have a really good time
Would you please meet me by the water, baby
Cause I can't get you off of my mind

I've been thinking everyday about you
Don't fit anywhere into my life, but that's okay
Cause I think I might be right for you
And because of that, I'm not scared at all
And everyone says I'm crazy
And everyone says I'm a fool
Would you meet me by the water tonight
Cause I'm ready to break all the rules

Please don't leave me standing
With my heart in my hand
I can't last here
I'm breaking down,
And no on understands why I got here
But I knew from the very first moment
That I met you
You'd be the one

Would you meet me by the water tonight
Would you please fall asleep
Holding my hand
Cause I've got everything in store for you, baby
If you'll be my man

Letter Read

My love, my love, my love
How could you do this to me
My love, my love, my love
You were supposed to be
And I shouldn't have to tell you to explain yourself

My love, my love, my love
How could you do this to me
My love, my love, my love
You're not enough for me
And I shouldn't have to tell you to explain yourself

All I have is your letter read
And I cannot get it out of my head

And I'm afraid, and I can't breathe
And I'm in love with you
But you are not with me
And I have put so much into a life
I made too much about you now to lie

My love, my love, my love
How could you do this to me
My love, my love, my love
You're not enough for me
And I shouldn't have to tell you to explain yourself

But all I have is your letter read
And I cannot get it out of my head

All I have is your letter read
And I cannot get it out of my head

And I'm afraid, and I can't breathe
And I'm in love with you
But you are not with me
And I have put so much into a life
I made too much about you now to lie

Time passes by
While I wait for your call
Time passes by
I hear nothing at all

And I'm afraid, and I can't breathe
And I'm in love with you
But you are not with me
And I have put so much into a life
I made too much about you now to lie

And I'm afraid, and I can't breathe
And I'm in love with you
But you are not with me
And I have put so much into a life
I made too much about you now to lie

I'm afraid, and I can't breathe
And I'm in love with you
But you are not with me

Even So

You're gonna hate me when I tell you everything
You're gonna question whether you really know me at all
You will revisit every smile, and where it fit into the day
I know this is how it will play
And I try, oh I try to think of all the things
That I could do to let you know that I love you
Even so

I was not looking to do you wrong
Was not looking for a change of scenery
I don't remember where, or when, or how I did
But I'm hoping that you'll forgive me
And I try, oh I try to think of all the things
That I could do to let you know that I love you

Do you remember how we used to run in the summertime
Do you remember how we'd
Do you remember how we'd run in the summertime
Do you remember how we'd run

Oh I try, I try so very hard
And I cry, I cry so very much
For I love you like you'll never let yourself feel again
I love you like a brother and a friend
I love you with my whole heart until it bends
I love you like a lover until the end

But I'll always think of all the things you did
To let me know that you love me
But you're leaving
Even so

Worn Me Down

Gone
She's gone
How do you feel about it?
That's what I thought
You're real torn up about it

And I wish you the best
But I could do without it
And I will because you've worn me down
Oh I will because you've worn me down
Worn me down like a road
I did anything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did anything to please
But you can't stop thinking about her
No you can't stop thinking about her

And you're wrong
You're wrong
I'm not overreacting
Something is off
Why don't we ever believe ourselves
And I, Oh I
I feel that word for you
And I will because you've worn me down
Oh I will because you have worn me down
Worn me down like a road
I did anything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did anything to please
But you can't stop thinking about her
No you can't stop thinking about her

She's so pretty
She's so damn bright
But I'm so tired of thinking about her again tonight
Worn me down like a road
I did anything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did anything to please you
Worn me down like a road
I did anything you told me to do
But you can't stop thinking about her
No you can't stop thinking about her
No you can't stop thinking about her
No you can't stop thinking of her

I Want You

You sat down next to me, like poetry to wine
Our window looked upon a yellow neon sign
I took your hand while you decided what to do
The only kiss, I ever miss, I shared with you
The other cities hold a memory still of a place
But, when I dream of London, I can only see your face

I want you
And no one
No one else will do
You, or no one
Cause no one is the only one
To fill the empty space I hold for you

You simplified me down to slogans on the wall
I took offense, but you were right about them all
My friends are telling me I shouldn't waste my time
But I can't concentrate until I make you mine
I'm drawing cards and making wishes down at the well
Who would've known I'd lose myself in that old hotel

I want you
Or no one
No one else for me
Oh you, or no one
Cause no one else is strong enough,
To slow me down in time to set me free
I want you
Or no one
No one else is fine
Oh, you, or no one
No one is the only one
To fill me up until I make you mine

Paper Doll

Only daughter
You got your ticket too soon
Holy water
Cause everybody's getting ruined
They are waiting to see what you do
Too long, waiting
Everybody's cleared the room

And they'll dress you up
And stand you in all the right places
Their words like honey
They smile as they change your faces
With no regard for you at all
And you find they treat you like a paper doll

And they'll dress you up for the flight
Like Ophelia, you wave goodnight
With the earth and sky you cheer and sigh
Writhe as all your days go by
And laugh as you die
As you die, as you die

Sweet softer shoulder, oh sweet sugar safe
Sweet softer shoulder, oh sweet sugar safe

Everybody has got their own life philosophy
And I can't wait no no
To find one coming to me
Oh, the bridge is narrow
You better not look down
Cause as soon as you jump over
You won't find nobody around
Oh, the bridge is narrow
And you've got so far to fall
And you know down in dirty water
Is no place for a paper doll

Reason Why

I think about how it might have been
We'd spend out days traveling
It's not that I don't understand you
It's not that I don't want to be with you
But you only wanted me
The way you wanted me

So, I will head out alone and hope for the best
And we can hang out heads down
As we skip the goodbyes
And you can tell the world what you want them to hear
I've got nothing left to lose, my dear
So I'm up for the little white lies
But you and I know the reason why
I'm gone, and you're still there
I'm gone, and you're still there
I'm gone, and you're still there

I'll buy a magazine searching for your face
From coast to coast, or wherever I find my place
I'll track you on the radio, and
I'll sign your list in a different name
But as close as I get to you
It's not the same

So I will head out along and hope for the best
We can pat ourselves on the back
As say that we tried
And if one of us makes it big
We can spill our regrets
And talk about how the love never dies
But you and I
Know the reason why
I'm gone, and you're still there
I'm gone, and you're still there
I'm gone, and you're still there

So steal the show, and do your best
To cover the tracks that I have left
I wish you well and hope you find
Whatever you're looking for
The way I might've changed my mind,
But you only showed me the door

So I will head out along, hope for the best
We can pat ourselves on the back
And say that we tried
And if one of us makes it big
We can spill our regrets
And talk about how the love never dies
But you and I,
You and I
You and I
Know the reason why

I'll Find A Way

I'll find a way to see you again
I'll find a way to see you again

I used to think that anything I'd do
Wouldn't matter at all anyway
But now I find that when it comes to you
I'm the winner of cards I can't play
Wait for me, wait for me
Darling, I need you desperately, desperately here

And I'll find a way to see you again
Oh I'll find a way to see you again

The rain is like an orchestra to me
Little gifts from above meant to say
Girl, you're falling at his feet
Isn't lovely or stunning today
Lay with me, lay with me
I'm alive when you're here with me, here with me, stay

I'll find a way to see you again
Yes I'll find a way to see you again

Why do the street lamps die
When you're passing by
Like a hand that won't stay on my shoulder tonight
If you held me close, would you laugh it away
Would you dare, the glance that I steal to stay

And I'll find a way to see you again
Yes, I'll find a way to see you again
I'll find a way, a way, a way to see you again
I'll find a way, a way, a way to see you again
I'll find a way, a way, a way to see you again
I'll find a way to see you again
The rain will bring, the rain will bring, the rain will bring
The rain will bring me down
The rain will bring, the rain will bring, the rain will bring
The rain will bring me down
The rain will bring, the rain will bring, the rain will bring
The rain will bring me down

Moments With Oliver

Instrumental

1963

Baby, I'm stuck in the middle and I don't know why
I find the words you sing to me
Sweeter than the words of a bird in the sky
Oh, the days you came around
I feel so good for me
I can take most anything
Cause what you bring

I find it magical (hey)
I feel like I'm loving you in 1963 (hey)
Flowers in my hair now (hey)
Little bitty hearts upon my cheek
Baby, you'll be on my mind
Til I kiss you next time

Baby, come on take a ride in my little blue bug
Keep the windows down
Don't forget to celebrate, the radio's up
Oh, the way you hold my hand
There is no other way
We could take a thousand walks
And laugh all day

I find it magical (hey)
I feel like I'm loving you in 1963 (hey)
Flowers in my hair (hey)
Little bitty hearts upon my cheek
Baby, you'll be on my mind
Til I kiss you next time

I find it to be magical (hey)
I feel like I'm loving you in 1963 (hey)
Flowers in my hair now (hey)
Little bitty hearts upon my cheek
Baby, you'll be on my mind
Til I kiss you next time

Magical (hey)
I feel like I'm loving you in 1963 (hey)
Flowers in my hair (hey)
Little bitty hearts upon my cheek
Baby, you'll be on my mind
Til I kiss you next time

Hey I feel like I'm loving you in 1963 (hey)
Hey, I got flowers in my hair now (hey)
Little bitty hearts upon my cheek
Baby you'll be on my mind

Quiet

Baby says I can't come with him
And I had read all of this in his eyes
Long before he even said so
Why go, I asked
You know and I know why
And it'll be just as quiet when I leave
As it was when I first got here
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything

Take care
I've been hurt before
Too much time spent on closing doors
You may hate me, but I'll remember to love you
Goodbye
Don't cry
You know why
And it'll be just as quiet when I leave
As it was when I first got here
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything

All the waves of blame arrange as broken scenery
As they steal your best memories away
What if I was someone different in your only history?
Would you feel the same
As I walk out the door
Never to see your face again
Never to see your face again

And it'll be just as quiet when I leave
As it was when I first got here
It'll be just as quiet when I leave
As it was when I first got here
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything
I don't expect anything to change when I leave

Under My Skin

I hesitate to say I was bait for you
Could that be something that you all would do
I'd be lying if I did now say I wasn't intrigued
But timing is everything here
And for the moment the 'we' is reprieved
But, as I watch the girl unfold before my eyes,
I discover that I like her

Would you please get our from under my skin
For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue
And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go

I'm in the dance, and it's a chance,
But stay and watch awhile
I'll be singing a tune just for you with a smile
And maybe if I'm lucky
You'll tip your hat to me, and you'll discover
That you like her

Would you please get our from under my skin
For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue
And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go

And crazy as it al plays out
I think I'm lonelier than I've ever been before
Cause I was so close
To going through that door
But I don't want to be the blame for them
I don't want to be to blame

Would you please get our from under my skin
For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue
And deep deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go, go, go, go
Oh, would you please get out
I'm not as strong as I seem,
But I won't let you know

To All the Girls He's Loved

No thanks
No more
No love
I'm done
I've had enough
You're going off without me
And I wish I was
But there's another can be
Just because
Alright be on your way
The kindest thing to say
Is not that you are fond
Please say
You'll come back to my arms again someday
Baby write some words about
How you can't shut me out
How you must find a way
To see me one more time
One more time
Please
Call up all your friends
And tell them it can't end
You don't know what you'd do
If you lost her
And lost me too

That's fine
That's good
That's nice
I understand the price
The cost of craving dark
Instead of light
I flipped a coin to see if you still care tonight
My blood
My hand
My soul
I thrown them under you without control
The things I freely give
You stole
And now I'm left in pieces
Baby tell the world about me
The way you won me over
In a city you can't remember
You think it was September
Sweet September
Oh baby
It's alright
I know she needs you like I do
And I want to win this fight
There's one thing that you've got to do
You've got to tell the world about a girl you once knew
Oh she, wasn't meant to be
But you fell so very deeply in love
With me

To all the girls he's loved
To all the girls he's loved
