AL STEWART lyrics - Orange

Amsterdam

Original and similar lyrics
Oh I just came back from Haarlem On the very last day of Autumn Made it through the customs, took the bus into town The flat looked cold and empty The chairs unused and dusty Just a few old letters and papers lying around The Dutch people were friendly You know they put me up and they fed me All along a tour of one night stands All my days and all my ways Are so confused I tell you right new I'm going to make it back to Amsterdam And you can feel fine anytime You choose to lose yourself for a while Bottle of wine In some back street cafe Or out on the street, there's a chance For you to meet anybody you please Taking the time To ease your blues away Fred was a crazy driver He took us at a hundred miles an hour Down a side street out of a traffic jam All my days and all my ways Are so bemused I tell you right now I'm going to make it back to Amsterdam Oh I just came back from Haarlem And the very thing I was wanting Was to find some way to let you know how I felt You can't say much in an evening If you know you'll soon be leaving There's not much time to talk, and it's maybe as well But I wanted to give you something Because you knew you really helped me So I've written you a song with a small West Indian band And though it seems some days that all my ways are Bound to lose I tell you right now I'm going to make it back to Amsterdam Amsterdam Amsterdam Amsterdam Pah-pa-pa-pah

30 Days

RUN DMC "Run-D.M.C."
Heard that they said that it's rainin men But the offer that I make, it won't be made again You don't have to write, you don't have to call It's a one-time offer for nothing at all And there's no red tape, I don't make it hard You don't need cash money or a Master Card I got easy terms, and a lay-away But I need a quick decision, and I need it today And if you find that you don't like my ways Well, you can send me back in 30 days Now have you ever seen a man with a guarantee Well you're lookin at him now, cause the man is me And if you don't believe all the things I say I'm certified 'prime' by the USDA Now the name that I use is DJ Run And I'm a fast-talkin slow-walkin number one And if you don't believe all the words I say Then you're a natural born fool who's got to be that way I got a 50 rating and a 50 share Every minute, every hour that I'm on the air And when I come to town, I'm on a big marquee It says (DJ Run) and me, D.M.C. And if you find that you don't like my ways Well, you can send me back in 30 days A good job and lots of money might not be enough And to satisfy your needs it may be rough But I take some care and treat you nice And if it ain't sufficient once, I cold work it out twice And if you find that you don't like my ways Well, you can send me back in 30 days I'm gonna give you everything that you ever need If you need a pint of blood, then I'll even bleed If you're lookin for a car, I will buy you two And if you're lookin for a pet, I'll buy a kangaroo If you need a vacation, we can fly the world And you'll know I'll never look at another girl I'm a single-minded man, and my mind is set You're the lady of the '80s that I'm gonna get And if you find you don't like my ways Well, you can send me back in 30 days

So Am I

ALISON MOYET "Essex"
Our room across is a mile wide She comes and look now how you are the fireside I'm watching, she's waiting to show you the pearls in her Betsy Clark eyes She sighs the whistling winds you sail in She cries and you are alive She's saying she's sorry and oh, So am I So am I For ninety seven days that should have been an hour I know it's all you can do when she's so very near Praise be the King of the settee and his Guinivere I'll get up and go out and no doubt You're giving it all to her, oh So am I So am I The ninety-seven days the fifteen blessed hours And it's easy as it goes, so am I How and hour of ninety days will soon run out of time The weight of the world has the head in your hands (She's Indian giving again) You're sorry and sick and you know So am I So am I The ninety seven days and fifteen sodding hours came to nothing Taken in? So was I She's going, going gone and you know that's fine And so am I

Memory

BARBRA STREISAND "Collection Greatest Hits"
Midnight Not a sound from the pavement Has the moon lost her memory She is smiling alone In the lamplight The withered leaves collect at my feet And the wind begins to moan Memory All alone in the moonlight I can dream of the old days Life was beautiful then I remember the time I knew what happiness was Let the memory live again Every street lamp seems to beat A fatalistic warning Someone mutters and the street lamp sputters And soon it will be morning Daylight I must wait for the sunrise I must think of a new life And I mustn't give in When the dawn comes Tonight will be a memory too And a new day will begin Burnt out ends of smoky days The stale cold smell of morning A street lamp dies, another night is over Another day is dawning Touch me, It's so easy to leave me All alone with the memory Of my days in the sun If you touch me, You'll understand what happiness is Look, a new day has begun...
