The Bride Stripped Bare (1978)



1- Sign Of The Times
Here is a rainbow for your hair
Here is another sign of the times
We live we die
We laugh we cry
We know not why
Lipstick 'n leather wear 'n tear
Off another sign of the times
We're chained and bound
Hard lines crack down
On stony ground
Here is a taste of here and now
Red is the bloody sign of the times
The bride stripped bare
Of all despair
We're cut but we don't care
Here is a rainbow for your hair
Here is another sign of the times
Light up in anger I'll be there
Fight for a sign of the times
We live we die
We laugh and we cry
We know not why
Bent on a life between the lines
End on a sign of the times

2- Can't Let Go
Well I rush out blazin
'My pulse is racin'
As the rain streams down my face
There's no turning back now
To fight with fate
Outnumbered 'n out of place
They said go west young man, that's best
It's there you'll feel no pain
Bel-air's okay if you dig the grave
But I want to live again
Can't let go
There's a madness in my soul tonight
Can't let go
Must ride like the storm
Can't let go
Will I run out of control tonight
Can't let go
Until every trace is gone
It's a winding road from cuesta way
Down sunset to the beach
Though Canoga Park is a straight safe drive
It's too far outa reach
But now the headlights are flashin' by so fast
All directions seems the same
And the windscreen wipers keep a beat repeatin'
You can't let go again
What's in a name on the street tonight
I'm only a face in the crowd
All in the dark and afraid tonight
Nowhere to run or to hide
But I can't let go
Sometimes the world outside'll take you in
With just a smile
And you so blinded with desire
A hundred sleepless nights have left me
Wasted and so cold
But I can take it I'm hangin' on
Can't let go
There's a madness in my soul tonight
Can't let go
Must ride it like the storm
Can't let go
Will I run out of control tonight
Can't let go
Until every trace is gone

3- Hold On (I'm Coming
Don't you ever feel sad
Lean on me when the times are bad
When the day comes
And you are down
In a reveal of trouble
And bite the ground
Hold on I'm coming
Hold on I'm coming
Hold on I'm coming
I was always be your lover
If you get cold I'll be your cover
Don't have to worry, don't have to fear
You don't have to suffer baby
'Cause I'm here
Hold on I'm coming
Hold on I'm coming
Hold on I'm coming
Reach out to me for satisfaction
Just call my name for quickly action

4- The Same Old Blues
Have you heard that rumor that's going around?
You got it made, way across town
It's the same old story, tell me where does it end?
Yes I heard the news, it's the same old blues again
When I wrote you a letter, you must have read it wrong
I stood at your doorway but you was gone
I took a lot of time and let the telephone ring
It's the same old blues, same old blues again
When you give me the business, well did in your mind
'Cause I've got a lot of patience and I got a lot of time
It's the same old story, tell me where does it end?
It's the same old blues, same old blues again
I'm gonna find me a mountain, I'm gonna hide out
I ain't talking to you and I ain't yet coming out
'Cause I heart that rumor, tell me where does it end?
Yes I heard the news, it's the same old blues again

5- When She Walks In The Room
When she walks in the room
Then you know
Why your date says it's late
Time to go
And you know you can't leave
You must stay
'Til her laughter has drifted away
So you talk to the walls
Always know
'Cos they've seen it all
And heart it all before
And your fair weather friends
Fail to speak
They're so afraid still waters run deep
And they're don't understand
Or perceive
That you can't see the woods for the trees
Christmas trees you were sure
Weren't the sort
To build up your hopes
Then sell you short
Yeah to build you up
And sell you short....
All your life you were taught to believe
Then a moment of truth - you're deceived
all the wine in your life's all dried up
- is now the time to give up?
Like the soft paper cup that you squeeze
So you take this and that and then some more
And you make your way through the door
You make up your way through the door....

6- Take Me To The River
I don't know why I love you like I do
After the things that you put me through
You stole my money, my cigarettes
I haven't see hide nor hair of you yet
I wanna know, won't you tell me
I'd really love to stay...
Take me to the river, and wash me down
She cleans my soul
Put my feet on the ground
I don't know why you treated me so bad
After the things we could have had
Love is emotion that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen will never regret
Oh wanna know, won't you tell me
I'll be in love to stay
Take me to the river...
Hold me, love me
Please me, tease me
Till I can, till I can...
I don't know why I love you like I do
After tha changes you put me through
Your sixteen candles are right on my wall
They tell me who made a fool of them all
I wanna know, won't you tell me
I'll be in love to stay
Take me to the river
Take me to the river
Take me to the river
Walk me to the water
Walk me to the water
Take me to the river
Just walk me to the water
Walk me to the water
Take me to the river
Take me to the river...

7- Carrickfergus
I wish I was in Carrickfergus
Only for nights in Ballygrand
I would swim over the deepest ocean
Just to see my love before I die
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
Nor have I wings so I could fly
I wish I could meet a handsome boatman
To carry me over my love and I
In Kilkenny it is reported
On marble stones as black as ink
With gold and silver I did support her
But I'll sing no more till I've had a drink
Well I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober
A handsome rover from town to town
But I am sick now my days are numbered
Come all you young men and lay me down
Come all you young men and lay me down

8- That's How Strong My Love Is
If I was a songbird way up there
I'd go with love most everywhere
I'll be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know that I'm still around
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
I'd be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
And you could go swimming when you're here
And I'd be the rainbow after the tears are gone
Wrap you in my colors, keep you warm
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
I'd be the ocean so deep and wide
And get all the tears whenever you cried
And I'd be the breeze after the storm is gone
To try your eyes and wrap you warm
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, that's how strong my love is
So much love, so much love
That's how strong my love is
Any kind of love you want, I would get for you
Any kind of love, any kind of love
That's how strong my love is...that's how it is

9- This Island Earth
So I send an sos
Semaphore myself
Catch me falling finally
Through the air and underground
Everywhere this sound
Screams whisper "I can't breathe"
I feel it in my bones
Though I know I'm not alone
You're spinning far too far from me
So cruel to be so kind
Now I know I'll always find
This island earth
A mystery
As I stumble through the dark
Dream lovers dream apart
Starry eyed a vision rushes in
Do I wonder or care
My spirit's bleeding God knows where
A never ending stream
I tried to love, tried to find
My soul in shadows running blind
And restless as the sea
Via sidewalks through the haze
Wandering as in a maze
Lost in number time and space
So near and yet so far
Castaway as strangers are
This island earth
And you and me
