HARRY CHAPIN lyrics - Legends of the Lost Found

If My Mary Were Here

Original and similar lyrics
I would not be so stoned If my Mary were here I don't think I'd have phoned you If my Mary were here I'm a sad sack Sir Galahad Who's sword's around his knees With a Grail no longer holy And a prayer that's saying - please I would not be alone If my Mary were here But she took off And Lord I'm lost. I don't think I'd be drinking If my Mary were here And I know what I'd be thinking If my Mary were here We'd be wrapping up a blanket Full of cheddar cheese and wine Packing up our camper with a rendezvous in mind And we'd picnic out in Lincoln Park If Mary were here But she split So I got lit I'm sorry that I called you In the middle of the night But you're the one who listens When I need a little light I know we haven't talked Since I dropped you in the dirt I know you're not my lady now But Baby, how I hurt. (I could whistle up an old tune That your memory might recall Rustle up some reminisce 'Bout the good old days and all If I were seeking someone else I could find a way to hide But I'm pleading like a pauper, Babe And it leaves no place for pride) I would toss away my troubles When my Mary was here But now I'm lost inside the ruble Cause my Mary's not here So could I come on over With my heart in my hands And place it on your pillow Like a rusty old tin can I'm drunk and seeing double And my Mary's not here Once again Be the friend That you've been And take me in. Please take me in.

I Know Youre Name

MICHAEL W. SMITH "Live The Life"
Who is the you that no one else can see In you heart the lonely one afraid to be Lost again...need a friend You hide your soul To keep the hurt inside All alone your tears call out into thenight Is he there...does he care Yes, I know your name Every prayer you pray I'm the one who brought you to this place The voice who sings to you The hand that clings to you Oh my child, I've always known you're name known your name I hold you close to me, close to heart And this kind of love will find you Anywhere you are Never fear, I am here

Night Comes Down

JUDAS PRIEST "Defenders Of The Faith"
In the last rays of the setting sun And the past days, that's where our memories run And all of those times Still race through my mind I'm shattered inside to find When the night comes down And I'm here all alone When the night comes down And there's no place to go Call me and I'll wait till the summer You never understood Call me and I'll wait forever For a love that's only good As the light starts to dim The fear closes in And the nightmares begin When the night comes down And I'm here all alone When the night comes down And there's no place to go Oh no you won't be there tomorrow Oh no say it isn't true Can't take this pain and sorrow Oh can't you see my heart is broken in two

Mind On My Man

CARLY SIMON "Hotcakes"
(Carly Simon) I've got my mind on my man I've got my man on my mind He's everything to me, he's somthin' more special Than any amount of lookin's gonna find I'm not hooked on any her from an idle dream But I'm idly dreaming of him He's a lotus, that opens and closes Notice he won't always let me in So my mind is on my man, got my man on my mind Sometimes he's sleepy And I don't think he loves me I worry about his lovin' Ain't I crazy? He's a Northern baby and a Southern child He's a gentelman lost at the fair He's a cowboy gettin' drunk at the Plaza He has a place in my heart anywhere And my mind is on my man, got my man on my mind
