Oh, this night is like no other And this room is ringing in my ears And these friends will never leave me And these tears are like no other tears Dancing till my feet don't touch the ground I lose my mind and dance forever Lose my mind and dance forever Turn my world around Turn my world around JET PLANE IN A ROCKING CHAIR Jet plane in a rocking chair Roller coaster roll nowhere Deaf and dumb ?or dance it there? I'll change this heart of mine This time, this time Sea cruise in a diving bell Run a mile in a wishing well ?Soft soap? and nothing to sell I'll change this heart of mine This time, this time Here comes the real thing I've been waiting for so long, for so long I've been looking for a love like you Crossed line on a telephone Crossed lies on a . . . Crossed fingers and head for home I'll change this heart of mine This time, this time They sink in a feather bed ?Got cool when you're stoned and dead? I'm a fool with a size one head I'll change this heart of mine This time, this time Here comes the real thing I've been waiting for so long, for so long I've been looking for a love like you Jet plane in a rocking chair Roller coaster roll nowhere Deaf and dumb ?or dance it there? I'll change this heart of mine This time, this time This time, this time This time, this time BEAT THE RETREAT Beat my retreat, back home to you Beat my retreat, back home to you I'm burning all my bridges I'm burning all my bridges I'm burning all my bridges I'm running back home to you Trailing my colours, back home to you Trailing my colours, back home to you This world is filled with sadness This world is filled with sadness This world is filled with sadness I'm running back home to you Follow the drum, back home to you Follow the drum, back home to you There was no sense in my leaving There was no sense in my leaving There was no sense in my leaving I'm running back home to you HARD LUCK STORIES They say running into you is like running into trouble Bend my ear and I see double You're everybody's idea of a waste of time You still come around 'cause I used to listen I run a steamship, I don't run a mission Don't be mistaken in thinking you're a friend of mine TChose hard luck stories, it's all I ever get from you Hard luck stories, you're gonna drive me out of my mind Those hard luck stories, it's all I ever get from you Hard luck stories, you're gonna drive me out of my mind Well, cops won't give you change of a penny Everybody's got money but you haven't any If I cared about you I'd say it was a crying shame Your wife ran away, left you on a Sunday She cried when she left, she was laughing on Monday She should have known better and never gone and changed the name

Why don't you grow up, why don't you settle down? Why don't you get a job, why don't you leave town? Even a chicken has to do what it has to do You don't like one thing, you don't like another You don't like anything that looks like bother Everyone don't like something and we all don't like you

DIMMING OF THE DAY/DARGAI CThis old house is falling down around my Gears FI'm drowning in the Criver of my Gtears CWhen all my will is gone, you hold me Gsway FI need you at the Cdimming Gof the Cday You Gpull me like the moon pulls on the Dtide You Gknow just where I keep my better Dside?

G C F

What days have come to keep us far apart? A broken promise or a broken heart Now all the bonny birds have wheeled away I need you at the dimming of the day Come the night, you're only what I want Come the night, you could be my confidant I see you on the street in company Why don't you come and ease your mind with me? I'm living for the night we steal away I need you at the dimming of the day I need you at the dimming of the day
