Avalon - 1982



1- More Than This" (Ferry)
I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they're blowing
As free as the wind
And hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
More than this - there is nothing
More than this - tell me one thing
More than this - there is nothing
It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like dream in the night
Who can say where we're going
No care in the world
Maybe I'm learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
More than this - there is nothing
More than this - tell me one thing
More than this - there is nothing


2- The Space Between" (Ferry)

The way I see it
This relationship ain't right
The space between us
Better close it up tonight
The space between us
Close it up tonight
The way I see it
This relationship ain't right
The space between us
Listen here listen, listen here listen
We better
Close it up tonight


3- Avalon" (Ferry)

Now the party's over
I'm so tired
Then I see you coming
Out of nowhere
Much communication in a motion
Without conversation or a notion
Avalon
When the samba takes you
Out of nowhere
And the background's fading
Out of focus
Yes the picture changing
Every moment
And your destination
You don't know it
Avalon
When you bossa nova
There's no holding
Would you have me dancing
Out of nowhere
Avalon


4- India"  (Ferry)

[Instrumental]

5- While My Heart Is Still Beating" (Ferry/Mackay)

All of those people
Everywhere
Ever so needing
Where's it all leading
Tell me where
Nothing insincere
I'd better have pity
I'd better go easy
I never will lay down
While my heart is still beating
Where's it all leading
Walk on air
Am I still dreaming
Words to spare
Lost in their meaning
I'd better be strong now
I'd better stop dreaming
My heart has flown away now
Will it never stop bleeding'


6- The Main Thing" (Ferry)

Look at my hand
There's a soul on fire
You can lead me even higher
The main thing
Everybody knows
When a good thing's gone
You can really turn me on
The main thing
You run through here
With your words of sand
I can nearly understand
The main thing


7- Take A Chance With Me" (Ferry/Manzanera)

As they say, two can play
But keep that song away from me
In my time too much love
Has made me sad for so long
I was blind, can't you see
Through the long lonely night
Heaven knows, I believe
Won't you take a chance with me
Sometimes I get so blue
People say I'm just a fool
All the world, even you
Should learn to love the way I do
I was lost, can't you see
Through the long lonely night
Heaven knows, I believe


8- To Turn You On"  (Ferry)

I could show you in a word
If I wanted to
A window on a world
With a lovely view
From close up inside a single room
With an open book aside
Like you read in school
It's so easy, believe me
When you need fun
I do anything to turn you on
Anything to turn you on
It's raining in New York
On Fifth Avenue
And off Broadway after dark
Love the lights don't you
I could walk you through the park
If you're feeling blue
Or whatever
Spring Summer whenever
Winter through Fall
I'd do anything to turn you on
Anything to turn you on
I could leave you as you were
If I wanted to
Then I wonder is it fair
Now you're on your own
Who cares about you
Except me, God help me
When things go wrong
I do anything to turn you
Must phone me, you know me
When things go wrong
I do anything to turn you on


9- True To Life" (Ferry)
So it gets to seven
And I think of nothing
But living in darkness
And the diamond lady
Well she's not telling
I don't even know her name
It's amazing
Times have changed
In days of old
Imagination'd leave you standing
Out in the could
Dancing city
Now you're talking
But where's your soul
-You've a thousand faces
I'll never know
There are complications
And compensations
If you know the game
Agitated in Xenon nightly
I'll take you home again
Travel way downtown
In search of nothing
But the sky at night
And the diamond lady
Well she's not talking
But that's alright
So I turn the pages
And tell the story
From town to town
People tell me
Be determined
Poor country boy
Too much luck
Means too much trouble
Much time alone
But arm in arm
With my seaside diamond
I'll soon be home


10- Tara" (Ferry/Mackay)
[Instrumental]
