Late Night Radio

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Windsong album, and has also been released on the Changes album. There's lonely hearts in Arkansas There's truckers in Des Moines All there to keep me company in the early morn A world unknown to daytime Is forever going on The airwaves of the nation Between midnight and the dawn Late night radio Take it everywhere I go My best friend when I'm lonely Is my late night radio Well I turn the dial A little bit past one-o-one point two In time to catch the news And see who's shooting who Then I hunt around for old songs They're so good to hear again To think of how it was Imagine how it might have been Late night radio Take it everywhere I go My best friend when I'm lonely Is my late night radio La La La I sing along ‘Cause I never know the words La La La La La La La La I'd love to call a talk show But I haven't got the nerve La La La Oh Oh Oh radio The Lord is still my shepherd But these preachers got to go This time of night my interest Lies in U.F.O.'s So I turn the dial a little Past fifty-six point three To find myself a lullaby To rock me off to sleep Late night radio Take it everywhere I go My best friend when I'm lonely Is my late night radio Late night radio Take it everywhere I go My best friend when I'm lonely Is my late night radio Words and Music by Bill and Taffy Danoff

Cafe Society

AL STEWART "Russians & Americans"
Late at night When reality's failing and nothing is prevailing but the wind, I come to you Out of sight Like a fugitive trailing across a barren land, you let me in, you always do. My reason is caught by a sudden gust of lateral thought that sweeps me far beyond It's the opium of the night And the ocean of words that we throw in the air grow more absurd and nobody seems to care It's a refugee's respite. Café Society. Late at night (late at night) While the city lies sleeping and solitude is keeping me awake, I think of you Dim your lights (dim your lights) Oh, I want to sink deep in that river of oblivion you make, I need it too. Let me check-in my mind with my coat at the door ‘cause I want to go flying where I've never been before Some inviting dark ravine If the hand that you hold in the dead of the night is a little too cold, the body seems just right It's a Toulouse Lautrec scene. Café Society. (‘Excuse me, sir, are you a member?’)

Cosmopolitician

ALPHAVILLE "Dreamscapes"
I sleep between the gates of night, in a no man's land always closer than you think, a kind of your best friend i have no religion and i have no flag i don't care if you're wrong or right lilac skinned or black i'm a cosmopolitician closer than your next of kin angel, devil of the night and the seed of everything and if your world has turned to ashes i will leave you never even when the sun's blown out, i will shine forever i caress you with my charms i'm your best friend, the dream i'm the light that guides you through the nights and deepest haze i'm a cosmopolitician... you need a friend without a doubt i wonder why you came around are you awake or do you dream you're stuck inside a frozen scene you try to move but there's no moves you try to speak but there's no use you try to wake but you can't you close your eyes without a chance you need a friend without a doubt i wonder why you came around..

Radio Lover

GEORGE JONES
[Spoken:] He kisses her goodbye, And heads for the radio station. Oh, he hates to leave her, But he's got another show to do. He knows she gets lonely, So he lets her know that he's thinking about her. And though millions are listening, She knows who he's talking to. [Chorus (Sang):] Comin' to you live like I do every night From the heart of your radio. I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad. And a few ol' cheatin' songs. Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land Found a love just as true as mine Good night angel, sleep tight darlin' Close your pretty brown eyes. When the show is over, Your radio lover Will be home by your side. She's laying in bed As her DJ tells her that he loves her. It would break his heart If he knew she wasn't there alone. She knows when to cheat And when to tell her lover to leave her. She knows they'll be safe Just as long as his show goes on. [Spoken:] He planned a surprise For the night of their first anniversary. He taped his show just so he could be home. The radio was playing and, As he walked in on her and her lover, He heard himself saying The last words that they ever heard. [Chorus (Sang):] Comin' to you live like I do every night From the heart of your radio. I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad. And a few ol' cheatin' songs. Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land Found a love just as true as mine Good night angel, sleep tight darlin' Close your pretty brown eyes. When the show is over, Your radio lover Will be home by your side. [Chorus (Sang):] Comin' to you live like I do every night From the heart of your radio. I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad. And a few ol' cheatin' songs. Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land...
