Look at you now with your boots and your yellow dress on / I could get up and dance until the dawn / all of my life I’ve been waiting for something to shine / heaven you know I won’t let go this time / haven’t you heard the bird’s not scared to sing / and I would give all that I have just to wear that ring / given the word the bird still dares to dream / and I would give all that I have just to wear that ring / look at the way that you blow when you walk in the room / suddenly every rose begins to bloom / all of my life I’ve been waiting for something to show / heaven it seems got lost so long ago / haven’t you heard the bird’s not scared to sing / and I would give all that I have just to wear that ring / given the word the bird still dares to dream / and I would give all that I have just to wear that ring / hanging around with my ear to the ground / by and by I figured it out / all of the action was passing me by without doubt / something was missing / it just started pissing me off so I started to sing / and I would give all that I have just to wear that ring / I would give all that I have just to wear that ring.

Put the pedal to the metal my fine little kettle / fill your head full of steam as you start to dream / just inhale the stars as you bail to Mars / put the pedal to the metal again / sing it low / sing it sweet / as you walk the street / leave a space in your heart for a brand new dart / start to wake up and play every brand new day / sing it low / sing it over again / first we go down to the face of the mountain / then we get up on a separate stone / and we look down on a city of forest / cooking and dancing at home / tell the ghetto not to settle my fine little kettle / take the cars from the streets turn them into beats / take the planes from the sky make them weep and cry / tell the ghetto not to settle again / take a fire-red petal my fine little kettle / may the tales that I bring make you laugh and sing / may the language that I use make you sail and cruise / take a fire-red petal again / first we go down to the face of the mountain / then we get up on a separate stone / and we look down on a city of forest / cooking and dancing at home / put the pedal to the metal my fine little kettle / fill your head full of steam as you start to dream / just inhale the stars as you bail to Mars / put the pedal to the metal again.

Rolling shadows on the wall / haunted memories and dreams / footsteps echo in the hall / silence ripples in the seams / all the past is put away / and the lock has heard the key / soon the moon is going to play / to a midnight melody / there’s a man down on the street / got no room to lay his head / just a paper for a sheet / just some pavement for his bed / he’ll just wait until the day / cold and lonely as can be / soon the moon is going to play / to a midnight melody / rolling shadows on the wall / twisted memories and dreams / telephones that never call / diamond ring that never gleams / but for all that’s gone away / and no matter what will be / soon the moon is going to play / to a midnight melody / but for all that’s gone away / and no matter what will be / soon the moon is going to play / you a midnight melody.

Amy / girl / now don’t be late for school / maybe I can teach you something new / continents and galaxies / I’ll try to do my best / you should be there right among the rest / ask me any question that you please / Lord knows that I’ll answer some with ease / other ones might take some time / I’ll have to take a look / see if I can find them in a book / Amy there are mysteries / that I don’t even know / like why there’s black and white / and high and low / and how someone could leave a girl / who giggles every time I catch her eye / you wonder why / Amy let’s go out and take the boys / I’ll be on the girls’ side again / Rafael and Mario are gonna cry and yelp / that’s all right / the boys don’t need my help / this time kick it over by the fence / make sure that your foot’s on second base / give me just one little bounce / I’ll lift it to the sky / you run home and I’ll come right behind / Amy there are mysteries / that I don’t even know / like why there’s day and night / and fast and slow / and how someone could leave a girl / who won’t give up or settle for a tie / you wonder why / you wonder why.

Let’s not turn our face away / before we seal the deal / eyes ahead let’s look into the coal / partner we’ve been traveling / on this trail for many a year / no one here is dearer to my soul / still I know there’s different ways / and people have to roam / sometimes home’s alone on the inside / it would take a stronger man / to roll away this stone / wish I had the will to still want to ride / flowers in the springtime / soon are heading for a fall / happy laughing times go by too fast / I’ve seen rivers beautiful / and mountains oh so tall / but I’d give them all / for something good that lasts / Lord I’d give them all / for something good that lasts / look into the fire and begin to reminisce / laugh about the heists that went so wrong / seven bags of gold and not one penny to our name / wish I had the nerve to just run along / flowers in the springtime / soon are heading for a fall / happy laughing times go by too fast / I’ve seen rivers beautiful / and mountains oh so tall / but I’d give them all / for something good that lasts / Lord I’d give them all / for something good that lasts / Lord I’d give them all / for something good that lasts.

Helicopters in the morning / up above the banyan tree / why do they never give a warning / before they come for you and me / trouble overhead / why Lord should it be / why Lord must we suffer / before we ever get to see / trouble overhead / they didn’t teach us right in grade school / they went and made a golden rule / that none of them would ever follow / looks like they found someone to fool / trouble overhead / why Lord should it be / why Lord must we suffer / before we ever get to see / trouble overhead / now which one is the mad man / and which one is the priest / you can’t separate the sad man / from the rapture of the beast / trouble overhead / trouble overhead / trouble overhead.

I’m going back to the jewel / I just can’t do this anymore / sometimes we fail and play the fool / I can’t undo this dirty war / I want to see the wooden boats upon the beach / and reach for stars I know I’ve counted on before / I want to come home to a woman just like you / I’m going back to the jewel / going back to the jewel / sometimes I wander down the street / until my feet are tired and sore / but there no friendly face to greet / they all retreat like it’s a war / I want to be there where the people know my name / and do the same thing that I did the day before / I want to come home to a woman just like you / I’m going back to the jewel / going back to the jewel / I’m going back to the jewel / I just can’t do this anymore / I need a woman just like you / going back to the jewel.
