AL STEWART lyrics

Year Of The Cat

Original and similar lyrics
On a morning from a Bogart movie In a country where they turn back time You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running Like a watercolour in the rain Don't bother asking for explanations She'll just tell you that she came In the year of the cat She doesn't give you time for questions As she locks up your arm in hers And you follow 'till your sense of which direction Completely disappears By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls There's a hidden door she leads you to These days, she says, I feel my life Just like a river running through The year of the cat Well, she looks at you so cooly And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea She comes in incense and patchouli So you take her, to find what's waiting inside The year of the cat Well, morning comes and you're still with her And the bus and the tourists are gone And you've thrown away the choice and lost your ticket So you have to stay on But the drum-beat strains of the night remain In the rhythm of the new-born day You know sometimes you're bound to leave her But for now you're going to stay In the year of the cat

BARENAKED LADIES "Maroon"
The credits roll, the camera pans And in the mist our hero stands He starts to speak, then folds his hands in prayer An awkward pause, then what's my line There's nothing left to say this time And what would you say to a bad guy who's not there In terms of Roman numberals, He's IV league with Roman Polanski He'd win an Oscar every time if he was only given the chance He started on the Broadway stage A product of another age, An offer and a pilot drew him west The series bombed, commercials came And though nobody knew his name They all recognized the potential he possessed Deodorants and dental floss And how much does that new car cost His acting was methodical in You Don't Need A Medical He's branded like a racing car, He's like a movie star without movies The week of Independence Day, The casting agent called to say Your smile could save our movie and the world Buy buy buy buy Sell sell sell How well you learn To not discern Who's foe and who is friend We'll own them all in the end It goes like this, we have no choice; the minarets, The wailing voice And vaguely Celtic music fills the air We choose a foreigner to hate, The new Iraq gets more irate We really know nothing about them, and no one cares Aladdin and the forty thieves Enhanced by brand new special effects Saddam and his cow disease spiced up With some gratuitous sex A movie's made, a war is won A low-speed chase, a smoking gun Distracts us while the actor takes the stand Buy buy buy buy Sell sell sell How well you learn To not discern Who's foe and who is friend We'll own them all in the end

Straight To You

JOSH GROBAN "Illuminations"
All the towers of ivory are crumbling And the swallows sharpen their beaks This is the time of our great undoing This is the time that I'll come running Straight to you, for I am captured Straight to you for I am captured one more time The light in our window is fading The candle gutters on the ledge Well now sorrow it comes a stealing And I'll cry girl but I'll come running Straight to you for I am captured Straight to you for I am captured once again And gone are the days of rainbows And gone are the nights of swinging from the stars For the sea will swallow up the mountain And the sky will throw thunderbolts and sparks Straight at you, but I'll come running Straight to you, but I'll come running one more time Heaven has denied us it's kingdom The saints are drunk and howling at the moon And the chariots of angels are colliding Well I'll run babe, I'll come running Straight to you for I am captured Straight to you for I am captured one more time

Our Time

YEAH YEAH YEAHS "YYY"
I - May be dead honey But I was left with my eyes And underneath sugar Well I've been sunk by your lies And my heart baby Is cold and blue We're two of a kind lately Both me and you It's our time sweet baby To break on through It's the year to hated So glad that we made it Cuz all the kids in the street Whisper sounds that sweep The stars under their feet Well it's the year to be hated One, two, ready go It's our time X7 To be hated Alright To be hated Uh huh Come on kids Its our time X7 To be hated Alright Well it's the year to be hated So glad that we made it Cuz all the kids in the street Whisper sounds that sweep The stars under their feet Well it's the year to be hated Alright yeah It's the year to be hated Uh huh It's the year to be hated Alright Well it's the year to be hated

Touch Me In The Morning

DIANA ROSS "Touch Me In The Morning"
(Ron Miller/Michael Masser) Touch me in the morning Then just walk away We don't have tomorrow But we had yesterday (Hey!) Wasn't it me who said that Nothing good's gonna last forever? And wasn't it me who said Let's just be glad for the time together? It must've been hard to tell me That you've given all you had to give I can understand you're feeling that way Everybody's got their life to live Well, I can say goodbye in the cold morning light But I can't watch love die in the warmth of the night If I've got to be strong Don't you know I need to have tonight when you're gone? 'Till you go I need to lie here and think about The last time that you'll touch me in the morning Then just close the door Leave me as you found me, empty like before (Hey!) Wasn't it yesterday We used to laugh at the wind behind us? Didn't we run away and hope That time wouldn't try to find us (Didn't we run) Didn't we take each other To a place where no one's ever been? Yeah, I really need you near me tonight 'Cause you'll never take me there again Let me watch you go With the sun in my eyes We've seen how love can grow Now we'll see how it dies If I've got to be strong Don't you know I need to have tonight when you're gone? 'Till you go I need to hold you until the time Your hands reach out and touch me in the morning (Mornings where blue and gold and we could feel one another living) Then just walk away (We walked with a dream to hold and we could take what the world was giving) We don't have tomorrow, (There's no tomorrow here, there's only love and the time to chase it) But we had yesterday (But yesterday's gone my love, there's only now and it's time to face it) Touch me in the morning...
