HARRY CHAPIN lyrics - Sniper Other Love Songs

And The Baby Never Cries

Original and similar lyrics
Well, I've sung out one more evening, and I'm wrung out, feeling beat. I walk on out the door once more to an empty city street. A Good guitar will serve you well when you're living in the lights but it's never going to warm you in the middle of the night. And so I come and go with her in whispers. Each and every time she says she dies. When she is reborn again I kiss her. And the baby never cries. She works in the daytime, she leave her baby with a friend. I sing every evening, I only see her now and then. I come to her at midnight, when 'bout half the world's asleep, and she puts me back together, in the hours before I leave. Her apartment is down on Perry Street, there's a tree in her backyard. Her old man had left her, he just took off for the coast, and I caught her on the rebound when I needed her the most.

If You Change You're Mind

ERIC CARMEN "Fresh"
(Eric Carmen) Well it's all been said, it's all over now I guess that I should leave 'Cause there's nothin' left for me to do Except to set you free So let me leave you now before I cry I'll just go back to my room and hide And never let no one else inside to To do this again But if you change your mind Won't you take some time And let me know that you Still want me too 'Cause I'll wait night and day Until you say that you have Changed your mind Won't you change your mind If you should change your mind Oh yeah Well I tried so hard to be the one That you were dreaming of But I guess it wasn't quite enough To make you fall in love So walk away, leave me by myself And let me crawl back into my shell And be the me that I do so well Before I met you But if you change your mind Won't you take some time And let me know that you Still want me too 'Cause I'll wait night and day Until you say that you have Changed your mind Won't you change your mind If you should change your mind Oh yeah I'll be waitin' at home Just a call me up on the phone And I'll be by your side There's no reason to hide If you need me just call Don't you worry at all But if this is the end And I can't see you again I just can't carry on It's so hard when you're gone It's so hard when you're gone Oh oh, oh oh, oh no, oh! Baby don't leave Baby don't go Oh baby don't go Baby don't go now Baby, don't leave me Oh, baby don't go Baby don't leave Baby don't go now No, no, no, no, no, no, no Baby don't go Baby don't leave me I need you so bad now No, no, no, baby I need you

You get her name and number and then you feelin' real mellow You get home, wait a day, she's what you wanna know about Then you call up and it's her girlfriend or her cousin's house It's not a front, F to the R to the O to the N to the T It's just her boyfriend's at her house (Boy, that's what is scary) It's O.P.P. time, other people's what you get it There's no room for relationships, there's just room to hit it How many brothers out there know just what I'm gettin' at Who think it's wrong 'cause I'm splittin' and co-hittin' that Well if you do, that's O.P.P. and you're not down with it But if you don't, here's your membership Chorus You down with O.P.P.

Feathers And Down

Cardigans
so you're tryin' to do what they did your friends that turned to liquid and got lost in a sea now you're drownong me with you'r talk of four-leaf clovers you turn to rocks and omen to beat the ambient harm that is bruising your karma oh I wish my arms were wider I wish that I could hide you so you could rest and repair without the blanket of sorrow the thick and the grey your blanket of woe is so heavy and stained and it only weighs you down so you thought that getting sober would mean your life was over I don't think it's that bad I don't think it's that bad just you sleep a little, baby leave the world alone and later if you wake up alive that old blanket of sorrow could be feathers and down your blanket of woe would leave you alone and I could love you 'til you drown come to me, let's drown come baby, let's drown in fethers and down

I Took You Home

10CC "Look Hear"
I looked at your face somehow I knew Nothing could tear me away You started to smile and I was lost Fumbling for something to say I took you home, you took me in I knew I'd never be the same again Baby, isn't it funny how it started Well you know The windows were frosty and grey But we didn't notice the cold Wrapped in the warmth of your body Hoping this dream would never go I took you home, you took me in I knew I'd never be the same again Baby, isn't it funny how it started Well you know Your folks were sleeping soundly upstairs We couldn't really turn on the light So I stumbled and we fell in the dark I could have died It's crazy to remember all the reasoning I wonder if the memory will ever fade away I looked at your Father and I smiled He said it was time for me to go Stumbling out into the morning Hoping my feelings didn't show I took you home, you took me in I knew I'd never be the same again Baby, isn't it funny how it started Well you know

Don't You Ever Leave Me

Hanoi Rocks "Two Steps From the Move"
The nights are wearing me down And it's hard getting through the day 'Cos I need you right now And right now you're so faraway I guess I should have known That I'd end up this way But I swear I'll come home And then nothing will drag me away Don't you ever leave me baby Don't you ever leave me now Don't you ever leave me baby If you leave me you will kill me now Now that some much time has passed I know that this love of ours will last forever Cos we feel it, take it, hold it and believe it You need me like I need you I know you do, I'm sure you do The lights are slowly going down On Lexington Avenue And me, I'm all alone feeling the tears falling down from my eyes A subway train is passing by Driving into the Darkness I jump inside 'cos I ain't got nowhere to sleep tonight Don't you ever leave me baby Don't you ever leave me now Don't you ever leave me baby If you leave me you will kill me now I was forcing myself just walk through the day When all I really wanted to do was curl up in a corner and cry Nothing had any meaning And I just thought let's give it another day and see if anything happens Then you came along like my own ray of sunshine Made me feel warm, safe and alive again
