JAMES TAYLOR lyrics - Before This World

Snowtime

Original and similar lyrics
Oleana, via Del Norte, O Canada It was snowtime, it was showtime, it was no time To be lost in downtown Toronto It was wintertime, ‘round dinnertime I’m beginning to see that the sunshine just doesn’t want to From a side street come a backbeat Pulling on me like the moon pullin’ on the tide Ay caramba, one-note samba, la la la la bamba Lighting me up inside They had the heat of the sun in the beat of the talking drum The light of a tropical moon on a night to remember Someone summoned up summer just strumming on an old guitar And every note was the antidote to December My first impression, some kind of procession Pulling on a long line of fancy dancers A band stuck up on a flatbed truck They were raising a ruckus swinging for the fences Exiled Mexican textile working Punching two clocks, sending two paychecks home boys Hard working law ‘biding bus riding people Celebration on wheels destination unknown They had the heat of the sun in the beat of the talking drum The light of a tropical moon on a night to remember Someone summoned up summer just strumming on an old guitar And every note was the antidote to December Rio Grande Oleana Via Del Norte Oh Canada There was a lifeline south in the song coming from her mouth It swallowed me up and I followed it on downtown In the light of dawn the message that life goes on For the frozen man an invitation to live again They had the heat of the sun in the beat of the talking drum The light of a tropical moon on a night to remember Someone summoned up summer just strumming on an old guitar And every note was the antidote to December They were shakin’ it loose with the juice from the mambo man Long lanky Yankee boy, Buckwheat and Spanky my my Santiago de Cuba Belo Horizonte Cartagena Guaguancó Canada Guaguancó Canada

La Luna

BELINDA CARLISLE "Runaway Horses"
I remember when I met you All the stars were hanging in mid-air In these moments - nothing mattered But the way you caught me in your stare We were walking - we were talking We were laughing about the state of our lives How our fates brought us together As the moon was rising in your eyes On and on the night was falling Deep down inside us On and on a light was shining right through Ah La Luna La Luna The night that we fell under the spell of the moon Ah La Luna La Luna The light that will bring me back to you The light of La Luna In the hotels, in the cafes All the world was made with romance In the harbor moonlit water All the ships were swaying in a dance Then you held me and you kissed me And I knew I had to be with you You didn't ask me you just took me to the tiny bed in your tiny room On and on the band was playing A song of surrender On and on the sun would soon break thru Now I walk along the streets of Marseilles the winter sky is cold and gray and I don't know why I left you that day And I don't know where you are

Keep Me Up All Night

JULIE ROBERTS "Good Wine And Bad Decisions"
Be my hot pot of coffee, baby, Keep me up all night A full moon through my window shining A little too bright Baby, remember what it's like Keep me up all night Be my alley dog barking at the breeze That won't let me sleep Sometimes a lack of shut eye Is just what a body needs Baby remember what it's like Keep me up all night Let's Outrun the sandman Forget about the time Cast that old spell on me Just by looking at my eyes We'll light a little fire And watch the sparks fly We may be a little sleepy Come the sunrise Oh, remember what it's like Keep me up all night Be my summer church tent revival Lead me back to the light Let the spirit move us, Hallelujah When we get it right I swear by tomorrow morning, I won't mind Keep me up all night Let's Outrun the sandman Forget about the time Cast that old spell on me Just by looking at my eyes We'll light a little fire And watch the sparks fly We may be a little sleepy Come the sunrise Oh, remember what it's like Keep me up all night

Remember How We Started

PAUL WELLER "Paul Weller"
Remember how started on a summer's night Too drunk to care about what might You turned my head to kiss your lips Time stood still as my heart skipped a beat And if I could I'd take your hand and lead you off back to the past I know a trail, a secret mile, an' better to cry than never smile The moonlight shining through your flowered curtains I think we knew it was us for certain And just the thing that we hoped for Was building up into something more Oh I've been searching, searching Trying to find the words to say Oh I've been searching, searching Trying to get back to the love we made ... yesterday Remember how we started on a summer's night Too young to know about what might And just as well as we might not have started on this course at all

A Frenchman For The Night

JIMMY BUFFETT "Fruitcakes"
From his driftwood castle Comes a song I've heard before A scratchy gramophone cuts to the bone 'La Vie En Rose' arpeggios So the dream begins And the song is amplified Buy the Beaujolais, on Bastille day He dances in the tide By the light of the moon He's a Frenchman for the night By the light of the moon It'll be all right Well it takes him back To the days of love and war And the girl he knew with eyes of blue Waiting on the shore If he'd only known How the years would fly on by Such a simple crime, he's run out of time So he reaches for the sky By the light of the moon He's a Frenchman for the night By the light of the moon It'll be all right Blame it on the Champs Elysees Blame it on a tune Blame it on the stroke of Monet But you can't escape the moon He sees the stars above As the floor to heavens light While the angels taunt 'C'est une nuit blanche' He's a Frenchman for the night By the light of the moon He's a Frenchman for the night By the light of the moon It'll be all right From a driftwood castle Comes a song I've heard before A scratchy gramophone cuts to the bone 'La Vie En Rose' arpeggios

I'll Be Seeing You

BILLIE HOLIDAY "1944"
I'll be seeing you In all the old familiar places That this heart of mine embraces All day through. In that small cafe; The park across the way; The children's carosel; The chestnut trees; The wishin' well. I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day; In every thing that's light and gay. I'll always think of you that way. I'll find you In the morning sun And when the night is new. I'll be looking at the moon, But I'll be seeing you. I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day; In every thing that's light and gay. I'll always think of you that way. I'll find you In the morning sun And when the night is new. I'll be looking at the moon, But I'll be seeing you.
