AL STEWART lyrics - Between The Wars

Three Mules

Original and similar lyrics
Three mules came over a hill They were dragging a cart Creaking, it seemed to be falling apart Laden with millions of dreams It weighed more than they thought They never noticed the wheels getting caught They pulled on, staring ahead With blinkered eyes and lowered heads Hoping that all would be fine I see them now Time out of time Ramsey and Stanley and Neville Were the names of the mules Each wore a bridle encrusted with jewels And though a murmur of voices Was rising behind Each laboured on And they paid it no mind They pulled on with never a doubt Past boulders and holes Till the road petered out And giving a snort they sat down Waiting for somebody else to come round And from this are our lives writ large From the beach at Dunkirk To Pickett's Charge And it's hard to go back after coming this far Down the road Three mules looked over a fence At the field beyond Green as a forest it shone in the sun Into the stillness they broke Like a stone in a pond And kicking the gate down They brayed at the ground And pulled on tugging a dream Out of a smile and into a scream And tossed the damp soil all around Until the whole field turned muddy brown And from this are our lives writ large From the beach at Dunkirk To Pickett's Charge And it's hard to go back after coming this far Down the road Ah, but it's not very easy now being a mule I don't believe you appreciate all that we do Look at this long and unfortunate face Try to imagine that you're in my place This is my nature And to it I have to be true Three mules came over a hill With a sorrowful air Though we've been judged, they said It's hardly fair All that we did was for you And the good of the cause Then they went back to the sound of applause They went back into the night Where a sickle of moon Left a trickle of light And while we lay under our roofs The whole night filled up With the beating of hooves And from this are our lives writ large From the beach at Dunkirk To Pickett's Charge And it's hard to go back after coming this far Down the road And from this are our lives writ large And every day Is Pickett's Charge And it's hard to go back after coming this far Down the road

Solitary Day

Elegy
Paranoia slowly starts to take effect. His huge fortune has created many enemies. In haste he searches for solitude. Secluded from the outside world, he lives in a fragile sense of security. Locked away he hopes to find peace of mind, but instead he's haunted by the terrifying images in his dreams. Images of those whose lives he so mercilessly helped to destroy. All of that money you've made From all of those souls with their lives they've paid now Lost your pride, locked inside Where's the light at the end of the road Blame and sorrow No more day, just, tomorrow Close the door, turn the key Lock the misery away! You're living in an ivory tower All of the guilt you should feel when all of the torment you caused was real Truth you've found, changed your made At the end of the road there's a light So many places, hidden lies, saddened faces Close the door take the key, try and throw it away far, far away In a solitary day There's a solitary point of view Hide the fear away! That's the price you have to pay They're coming to get you, put boards on your windows It won't take 'em long 'till they find out a way Don't sleep stay awake now, look over your shoulder Your enemy's coming to take you away! In a solitary day, there's a solitary point of view Hide your fear away, it strips away the good in you

Down The Road

Dead Moon "Hardwired in Ljubljana"
Stranded in the storm trying to see through the rain Looks like my life's coming 'round again I wouldn't stop it now even if I thought I could I was one of the remnants from a burned out scene Trying to recover from the years between What they didn't want then is what they think they want now Down the road, down the road I can still remember being here a long time ago I'd been pickin' up the pieces from another hard fall Waitin' by the phone for an overseas call They wanted my past and they wanted it now I could sense it in the air, feel it in my veins Something was coming to take me away I'd been lost for so long, maybe it's the price we all pay Down the road, down the road I can still remember being here a long time ago I looked in the mirror trying to see What it was they had killed in me And why can't I no longer believe I wandered around and I swore by God I would never give in no matter how hard they fought I've waited too long to have it any other way Down the road, down the road I can still remember being here a long time ago

Man

ELTON JOHN "Made In England"
Man stands in all his glory Sitting at the crossroads of the same old story Man got his make-up, wears it like a mask Hides inside a child, lives inside a glass Man breathes his own deceit Man worships his own defeat Oh I'm a man, I know what it feels like I'm a man, working on the living part of life You see through me, I understand But don't lose hope if you can Have a little faith in man Shakespeare's men got all the lines Modern man lives back in time Man got bravado in his big steel hands Runs with the wolf, sleeps with the lamb Man falls, cuts and bleeds Man stumbles on his own belief He's the hoax behind the thrill The poison arrow, the bitter pill Hard to swallow, hard to kill, hard to understand He's the light behind the hill The broken promise, the iron will Hard to kill, hard to understand

Forever In A Day

Starting Line "Say It Like You Mean It"
Tuesday's here and I'll be waking up to another day filled with life's mistakes, And the ones that lingered from the day before. All the blanks I've drawn, All the times I've shared, All the times that I've been unprepared. All the songs I've sang that I just can't explain. Did you know that I once said That I can't change the road that I was led, And can't find better friends. Is it worth the pain Is it worth the wait As I attempt to set my record straight, I'll open up the drapes And I'll appreciate the most beautiful day. Afternoon should be coming soon, As dim light leaves, the sun shines over me, It feels like my shadows run away. Evening falls on top of me, And the minutes creep by constantly. Then I look back and start the day again. Am I sorry, am I lost, Have I forgot where I'm coming from Or have I just begun Different days and different ways Always seem to end up the same, It's too routine for me. Did you know that I once said That I can't change the road that I was led. Forever more and lived forever in a day.
