Strangers All Over Again   T.Poole
Nothing you do can change the way me and you
Are strangers all over again
We may as well never have called each other
Lover or even friend

Over a drink on Friday evening I think
We tried saying nothing too hard
Then rolling home crazy and drunk or faking
Aching thru every laugh

We'd better say goodbye
I can't believe your eyes anymore
Why do we need to lie at all ?
You know we're strangers all over again

There was a time we seemed to be
Exactly what each other lacked
Now do you find that you and me
Are holding each other back ?

No move I make can hide this growing mistake
That widens the silence in here

Meet Me Lord (At The Bottom Of The Hill)   R.McGeeney-T.Poole
Meet me Lord at the bottom of the hill
Save my soul yes I know that you will
But if you're gonna meet me
Greet me like a friend
I'm not sure but I think this is the end
Yes I think this is the end

I have seen you walking in the dawn
I have seen you kneeling in the dark

I don't know where or when or how you will appear
All I know is that I need you and I want you here

Chimes Of Freedom   B.Dylan
Far between sundowns finished
and midnights spoken toll
We struck inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in these sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
Flashing for the refugees on their unarmed road of flight
And for each and every underdog soldier in the night
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing

Even though a cloud's white curtain in a far-off corner flared
And the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
Electric lights still struck like arrows, fired but for the ones
Condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
Tolling for the searching ones,
on their speechless, seeking trail
For the lonesome-hearted lovers
with too personal a tale
And for each unharmful, gentle soul
misplaced inside a jail
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing

Starry-eyed and laughing
as I recall when we were caught
Trapped by no track of hours for they hang suspended
As we listened one last time
and we watched with one last look
Spellbound and swallowed till the tolling ended
Tolling for the aching ones
whose wounds cannot be nursed
For the countless confused, misused, accused,
strung-out ones and worse
And for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
And we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing
Song On The Radio   T.Poole
I remember the first time ever
I saw you standing there
For three days after I was in a dream
And every love song I heard on the radio I swear
They were singing that song for me
Oh my fantasy came true when you danced with me The music stole my heart
Now I can be where ever you are
When I hear it play - I can hear it now

Wo wo wo wo wo oh oh
When I hear that song on the radio
Turn up the dial, I can see you smile Oh oh

You know everyone's got some mythical place they're gonna be
Where someday meets magic in a wheeling dance
Well somewhere between Canandaigua and Albany
I'm right there in a timeless glance
Oh I'm tuned right in on you in a deja vu
I heard the song come true
As the Radio sang 'where ever you are'
I saw you then - I can hear it now

Saturday   T.Poole
Oh Saturday I got to say
Feel like I'm wishing my life away
I'm only doin' it for the pay
Oh Oh Saturday
When I was younger I never thought
I'd ever end up as the working sort
I got a body to support
Oh Oh Saturday

Oh yeah Can't wait for Saturday
Feel alright, get a little loose, get a little tight mmm

And every time I get this feeling
I'm laughing at the deeper meaning
Can't you see
It's so superficial
Oh Saturday I wished it all away

Can't Help But Love Her   T.Poole
She has the saddest eyes
But have you seen her smiling?
She tells the sweetest lies
But have you seen her smiling? Oh

She gets a crazy gaze
Fixing her to some distance
You get that same old craze
Flying your heart out on the run
And if you know her
You can't help but love her
Can't help but love her, no
Can't help but love her

Feel like I've seen her
All in some constant dream
Feel like I know her
All in some constant dream
