I want to say what I know is true You know I love you brother and that’s the truth Enigmatic is what they say But love with honour goes a long long way These situations give us positive things You and me both wearing our rings We go out, never in disguise We leave them laughing with tears in their eyes. My Brother, talking about my brother He loves to party and he loves to drink He doesn’t give a shit about what the others may think. Leave it alone, keep them at bay, A little bit of love goes a long long way Give us a rest, give us a break These good old boys have had as much as they can take You feel alone but what can I do there’s a thousand miles between me and you Like brothers in arms the battle is there The odds are large but it is never fair Its been happening ever since that we met I don’t believe in all the things that are said The road is long and we struggle until The time comes for us to pay the bill...

There’s a space behind your eyes that wasn’t there before Like me looking in an empty room without a floor I cry, cry, cry, cry over you You’re a hazy consecration brighter than a light Can’t believe that you would ever leave a human satellite I cry, cry, cry, cry over you Time has lost a hold of you Now you’re somewhere, somewhere else in my mind I remember not long ago The way you looked at me, you could do nothing wrong Anchor-light dynamite Take the moment - the wise man who knew Jagged edge to open wounds of possibility With your deportation we are all a refugee Cut their paper words and hang them on the pity tree Perfect antidote for facile mediocrity And I cry, cry, cry, cry over you Time has lost a hold of you Now you’re somewhere, somewhere else in my mind.

Take time to grow old There’s no need to fade away, don’t give up they always say, before you're gone Take time to grow old Don’t fall back on yesterday, no regrets they always say, before you're gone Take Time to Grow Old Find yourself a mystery; a sword that has never been found Burn some Kaufman rubber on the road where the king can be found How long will it take, how long How long, is up to you Twist the cap of alchemy; a canyon with Henry around Feel the scent of destiny when you trip over the line How long will it take, how long How long, is up to you Na, na-na na, na-na, na-na Ahhhh

Didn't look back to see the pain in your tears, because you said so Living the dream isn't all that it seems, we’re on a go slow Driving around to find some desolate ground, because he said so Minding my own and now I’m dancing alone, we’re in a no-go I know what it is and you know how to get it Like a setting sun The high and the low is the only way to go because they said so Flying so high; you’re never gonna die because you know so The spoon and the lighter makes everything tighter we’re so bo-ho You know that’s it’s right; every single night we’re going down low I know what it is and I know how to get it Like a setting sun

I am guilty of indecision Leaving it up to you Not having a point of view I am guilty of silence Not using my playing card Political boulevard Not trying to prove anything it’s the right way for me... I am guilty of television Living my life through you Vicarious deja vu I am guilty of defiance Depends on who faked the rule       Prohibitive Sunday School   Not trying to prove anything it’s the right way for me... I’d write it in a letter So you could know me better But you would twist my words to haunt me It’s not about persuasion A simple explanation you’ll find   I am guilty of innervision Twisted anxiety A side that I cannot see I am guilty of compliance Placating the village mind Emotional step in line

I’ve got to prove that my intentions are good I’m a living legend but I don’t carve in wood I shut the pitstops called reality I am so blind; that I cannot see Listen to me now who am I? I’m the preacher man I look quite young of that I’m always told I know the points without even being told that limitations are a fact of life an indiscretion with another mans wife Listen to me now who am I? I’m the preacher man yeh I’m the Preacher, the Preacher of love I’m the Preacher, sent from God above and if you show me your sin, you come right on in kneel before, the Preacher of love My caring wife it’s everything that we share My loving flock made me a millionaire We say the words but they don’t mean much My famous lifestyle keeps me nicely out of touch Listen to me now who am I? I’m the preacher man

Leavin’ home for the first time, must have been a quarter past ten The sun still kept shinin’, before the rain moved in It was late in September, just before the fall My mom had packed me a suitcase, and left it out in the hall I didn’t know what was coming. Got the car all started and turned the radio on Bob Dylan was singin’ something about Maggie’s farm I pulled out of the driveway straight into the oncoming car That’s when I met you babe; I didn’t get very far I didn’t know what was coming. We were rockin’ and rollin’ all over the place Standin' around with that look on your face It started in Blacko and ended in love Still, I have had my misgivings... Since that day that I met you life has been a turbulent thing Its gone straight from my moms place into a relationship thing Every day is a circus I really give you credit for that Complimentary they call us but I’m not sure about that

We skipped the light fandango Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor I was feeling kind of seasick But the crowd called out for more The room was humming harder As the ceiling flew away When we called out for another drink The waiter brought a tray And so it was that later As the miller told his tale That her face, at first just ghostly Turned a whiter shade of pale She said, "There is no reason And the truth is plain to see" But I wandered through my playing cards And would not let her be One of sixteen vestal virgins Who were leaving for the coast And although my eyes were open They might just as well have been closed And so it was that later As the miller told his tale That her face, at first just ghostly Turned a whiter shade of pale And so it was that later As the miller told his tale...
