Late Night, Maudlin Street

Winter coming Winter push on (push on) Oh, winter push on Winter is so long Winter moves on The last night on Maudlin Street Goodbye house, goodbye stairs I was born here And I was raised here, and ...I took some stick here Love at first sight It may sound trite But it's true, you know I could list the detail Of everything you ever wore or said Or how you stood the day As we spent the last night On Maudlin Street 'Goodbye house, forever!' I never stole a happy hour Around here Where the world's ugliest boy Became what you see Here I am - the ugliest man Oh, the last night on Maudlin Street Truly I do love you Oh, truly I do love you When I sleep With that picture of you framed beside my bed Oh, it's childish and it's silly But I think it's you in my room, by the bed (...yes, I told you it was silly...) And I know I took strange pills But I never meant to hurt you Oh, truly I love you Came home late one night Everyone had gone to bed But, you know No-one stays up for you I had sixteen stitches All around my head Oh, the last bus I missed to Maudlin Street So he drove me home in the Van Complaining, 'Women only like me for my mind...' Don't leave your torch behind A powercut ahead; 1972, you know And so we crept through the park No, I cannot steal a pair of jeans off a clothesline For you But you ... without clothes Oh, I could not keep a straight face Me - without clothes ? Well, a nation turns its back and gags... I'm packed I am moving house A half-life disappears today With 'every hag waves me on' (secretly wishing me gone) Well, I will be soon Ooh, I will be soon I will be soon I will be soon Will be soon, I will be soon Mmm ... I will be soon, I will be soon There were bad times on Maudlin Street They took you away in a police car Inspector - don't you know ? Don't you care ? Don't you know - about Love ? Your gran died And your mother died On Maudlin Street In pain, and ashamed With never time to say those special things ... oh I took the key from Maudlin Street Well, it's only bricks and mortar ! Oh, oh, truly I love you Oh, wherever you are Wherever you are Wherever you are I hope you're singing now Oh, I do hope I hope you're singing now Oh ...

JACKIE EVANCHO "Prelude To A Dream"
Midnight, not a sound from the pavement. Has the moon lost her memory? She is smiling alone. In the lamp light the withered leaves collect at my feet. And the wind begins to moan. Memory, all alone in the moonlight. I can smile at the old days, I was beautiful then I remember the time I knew what happiness was. Let the memory live again Every street lamp seems to beat a fatalistic warning. Someone mutters and a street lamp gutters and soon it will be morning. Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise. I must think of a new life and I mustn't give in. When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too. And a new day will begin. Burnt out ends of smoky days, the stale cold smell of morning. The street lamp dies, another night is over, another day is dawning. Touch me. its so easy to leave me all alone with the memory Of my days in the sun. If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is. Look, a new day has begun.

Dream Street

JANET JACKSON "Dream Street"
And a bus comes in on the Hollywood freeway in the dark A face catches sight of home, though at this spirited town Such a beating of the heart and a hope deep down inside They say the streets are paved with gold But it sure looks kind of cold outside Steppin' on the sidewalk with the stars beneath her feet Just a handful of tourists, is all she's bound to meet So tough to find a room and it takes more than a day And it's not too nice and the price is high Somehow she can't help but cry In a world full of fantasies, reality can hurt It's about the fiction, the odds won't go with her on Chorus: Dream street, dream street Will it all come true? Will it all just fade away Dream street, dream street Well, it's hard to find and It won't let hope escape from dream street A year goes by, and the situation she can't stand Came to be an actress, but a waitress is all she lands Her colleague smiles at her through the wrinkles of her face She came here too, with the self-same goals She never got out of this place She makes her mind up, she's gonna leave that very night It's been so long now since she's felt that good inside She calls the service line, there's a message in there for her She's gotta star in a movie part, suddenly it's all worthwhile Oh a little bit closer now, but really still too far Is it always out of reach, that bright and shiny star of Repeat Chorus
