ACHILLES LAST STAND

It was an April morning
When they told us we should go
And as I turn to you, you smiled at me
How could we say no
Whoa, the fun to have
To live the dreams we always had
Whoa, the songs to sing
When we at last return again

Swept New York a glancing kiss
To those who claim they know
To know the shrieks the seaman hears
The devil is in his home
Oh, to sail away
To sandy lands and other days
Oh, to touch the dream
That hides inside and is never seen, yeah

Into the sun, the south the north
Flys the birds of gold
The shackles of commitments fell
In pieces on the ground
Oh, to ride the wind
To tread the air above the din
Whoa, to laugh aloud
Dancing as we fought the crowd, yeah

To seek the man whose pointing hand
The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path
That churns up into stone
If one bell should ring
In celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat
As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

  (Guitar Solo)

Days went by when you and I
Made an eternal summers glow
As far away and distant
Our mutual time to grow
Oh the sweet refrain
Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains
Sleeping now to rise again

Wandering upon the rings
What place to rest the search
With the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

Will the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth
Whoaaaaaaaaaaa

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Ohhhhh, ohhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

Will the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhh
Ooooooooooohh

FOR YOUR LIFE

Well, well
Oh, oh, oh
You said that I was the only,
With the lemon in your head, oh oh, oh oh
Exhibition is your habit
Emotions second hand, oh oh, oh oh
Had to pull away to save me
Maybe next time around, ohhh
And she said, don't you wannit
Don't you wannit, coca-coca-cocaine
Hadn't planned to, could not stand to
Try it, friend, na na na na, yeah

Whoo ooh ooh ooh
Heard a cry for mercy
In the city of the damned
Oh oh babe, damned
Impossible to go lower
The next stop's under ground
Hoh, hellow ground
You want to know is it quite over
To fame and tears and losing hair
And I said, didn't mean to, did not mean to f-fail
You didn't plan it, you overran it, ahhhhhhhhhh

Do you wanna do it, do you wanna
Do you wanna, d-d-do it when you wanna
Do you wanna do it, do you wanna
Do you wanna, d-d-do it when you wanna

When you blow it, babe
You got to blow it right
Baby, if you fake it, mama
Baby, fake with all your might
When you fake it, mama
Please fake it right, for yourself, babe

When you fa-fa-fa-fake it, baby
You're fakin' it for your life
For your life
For your life
For your life

Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Do it when you wanna
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Do it when you wanna

  (Guitar Solo)

Oh, I can have you, baby
But I don't know what to do, yeah
Sometime, baby, nothin' I could do, yeah

Wanna find myself a crystal
Payin' through the nose
And when they couldn't resist you
I said Just go with the flow

And now your stage is empty
And now the curtain, baby please
Fold up your show-oh-ohh

Hadn't planned to
Could not stand to, fryin' yeah
I hadn't planned it
I over ran in, fryin'
For your life
For your life

ROYAL ORLEANS

One town love
Take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night
And if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite

A man that I know, went down to Louisiana
Had himself a bad, bad fight, yeah
And when the sun peeks through
John Cameron he sees sunny
He kissed her whiskers left and right
Whiskers

Now, now, now
A fight subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter
Our friendship took a bash tonight
Now love gets hot
Look far for a sea with water
Grew whiskers sittin' there through the night

  (Guitar Solo)

Whiskers

Down on Bourbon street
You know it's right
You can see my friend
When they run around us in the night
Most everywhere
Until the closet's bare
Run for the razor fun
Doin' up my head

New Orleans queen
Sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
But when I step out
I'm struck down with my sugar
She wears my cloak like Barry White
Now, one town love
Take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night
Take your pick
Be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite-ah

NOBODY'S FAULT BUT MINE

Ah, ah, ahhh, ah ah ah ahhh, ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahhhh

Oh, nobody's fault but mine, yeah
Nobody's fault but mine, yeah
Trying to save my soul to light
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine

Devil he told me to roll-ah
The devil he told me to roll-oll-oll-oll
How to roll the log tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

Ah, ah, ahhh, ah ah ah ahhh, ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahhhh
Ah, ah, ahhh, ah ah ah ahhh, ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahhhh
Ah, ah, ahhh, ah ah ah ahhh, ahh ahh ahh ahh ahh ahhhh

  Harmonica Solo

Gonna change my ways tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

  Guitar Solo

HOTS ON FOR NOWHERE

I was burned in the heat of the moment
No, it could've been the heat of the day
When I learned how my time had been wasted
Dear fellows, I turned away
Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder
When I should happen to fall
Time and his bride growing older
I've got friends who will give me flock all

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Corner of Bleeker and nowhere
In the land of not quite day
A shiver runs down my backbone
The face in the mirror turns grey
So, I looked 'round for a hitch from a reindeer
Said you oughta find him out in the day
I turned 'round to look for the snowman
To my surprise he'd melted away, yeah

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

The moon and the stars out of order
As the tide tends to ebb and sway
The sun in my soul's sinking lower
While the hope in my hands turns to clay
I don't ask that my feet fall on clover
I don't roam at opportunity's door
Why don't you ask my advice, take it slower
Then your story'd be your finest reward

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

  (Guitar Solo)

Lost on the path to attainment
Search in the eyes of the wise
When I bled from the heart of the matter
I started bleeding without a disguise
Now everything's finally happened
Now and then you've got to take time to pause
When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around
You can land in a boat without oars

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Hey babe, Hey babe
Hey babe, I lost my way
Hey babe, Hey babe
I really, really did now
Hey babe, Hey babe
I don't know where I'm gonna find it
Hey babe, Hey babe
Do you wanna know
Do you really, really, wanna help me, yeah

Let me tell you now, babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right
C'mon babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right
C'mon babe
Let me tell you
If it feels, if it feels, if it feels
if it feels so good, so good, so good
Oh, yeah

TEA FOR ONE

How come twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seem to, slip into days
Oh, twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seem to slip into days
When a minute seems like a lifetime
Ohh baby, when I feel this way

Sittin', lookin' at the clock
Oh, time moves so slow
I've been watching for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more

How come twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seems to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime
Baby, when I feel this way

  (Guitar Solo)

To sing a song for you
I recall you used to say
Oh baby, this one's for we too.
Which in the end is you anyway

How come twenty-four hours
Baby, sometimes seem to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby, when I feel this way

There was a time that I stood tall
In the eyes of other men
But by my own choice I left you woman
And now I can't get back again

How come twenty-four hours
Sometimes seem ta slip into days

Well well well well
A minute seems like a lifetime
Baby, when I feel this way, yeah
A minute seems like a lifetime
Oh baby, when I feel this way, I feel this way
