In Your Mind (1977)



1- This Is Tomorrow
Here in the hush of evenin'
On a night in June
Overhearin' conversations
Bayin' at the moon
Suddenly a voice I'm hearin's
Sweet to my ear
This is tomorrow's callin'
Wishin` you were here
Layin' in my hotel bedroom
Feelin' ceilin' blues
Wall to wall a TV's twitchin'
Clearly not a muse
Then flashin' through the interference
Beams a thousand tunes
This is tomorrow callin'
What have I to lose?
Truckin' by the railway station
I'm on the road again
Steerin' clear of all termination
Unto the point of pain
When steamin' thru on cue
I hear that wailin' whistle blow
If this is tomorrow callin'
Oh what a way to go!
Day to day you live old fashioned
Hi-toned, fancy free
A double take, an image-spittin'
Tailored to a T
While history is tellin' you
The same old thing
This is tomorrow callin'
Let's stick a new oar in
This is tomorrow callin'
Y'all 'n
Come on in

2- All Night Operator
Can't you hear me talkin' to you
I'm callin' you one more time
All night operator
Dial me a better line
Can't you hear me talkin'to you
Do telephones make you cry?
I try to write letters
Only my pen runs dry
Though my words sound so confused
The feeling is running strong
Stick tight operator
Help me to pass it on
A final connection
A bridge before the fall
Receiver unrestin'
I count on your call
Am I just a number to you
A handful of empty sighs
All night operator
Reader between the lies
With half the world dreamin'
I see through your eyes
A switchboard breathin'
A diary of crossed lines
Can't you hear me talkin' to you
I'm callin' you one more time
All night operator
Dial me better line
If you feel me driftin' away
Slippin' into my song
All night operator
All of a sudden - gone

3- One Kiss
Now is the moment
Here is the place
And soon's the time to go
Seein's believin'
Or so he thought once
Now he's not so sure
One kiss - one for the road - what is more?
One kiss - roughly expressing all that lips are for
Where do they come from?
Doesn't she speak?
Where can they co from here?
Forever or never
Or once in a while
Their situation's clear
One kiss - never too late to miss
One too many a broken-up affair - like this
Spinning together
Drifting away
The song of love is strange
A never ending
"See you soon"
Too late - the music changed
One kiss - what kind of end is this?
One more touching impression - one lost love - one kiss
Just as he's trying
To open the door
He fumbles with the key
Clumsily playing for time
Without words
Some things you can only feel
One kiss - lost in shade
One tear - ever so slowly falling left to fade

4- Love Me Madly Again
Are you still cutting it on the street
Do you make savage love when you meet
In the zig-zag shadows that promises much
Don't talk about it - Show me
Talkin' about it's - Easy
Don't talk about it - Love me up
Is that lightning exciting ya quite as much
Would I could feel it, would I could touch
Don't talk about it - It's not the same
Love me madly - Once again
Don't make it easy for me
Some like it tough you see
Loving is easy for me
A whole lotta love has passed this way
Don't talk about it - Show me
Talkin' about it's - Easy
Don't talk about it - Love me up
Is it as passionate as it seemed?
Was it for real or some kind of dream?
Don't talk about it - It's not the same
Love me madly - Once again
And should we meet again
Uncertain, out of reach
On the other side of time
Barriers broken
Thoughts entwine
Never words spoken
Love me madly again
And who can draw the line
A strand from me to you
A world apart, a smile
Loving is easy
Hard to end
Love letter's tearing
Love me madly again
And when you find the time
Let's share a silk caress
Somewhere for a while
Mirror to mirror
Frame on frame
Within' without you
Love me madly again

5- Tokyo Joe
My girl Friday she no square
She like lotus blossom in her hair
Be-bop records and something new
Sometimes borrowed but she's never blue
Oh no........not Tokyo Joe
Way past midnight - she not home
She cut the ice down the Danger Zone
Water-tight dresses - she don't care
A trifle risqué, a tart, no sir........
Oh no........sounds like Tokyo Joe
Geisha girl show you she adore you
Two oriental eyes implore you
Femme fatale or ingenue?
She very cunning, fiendish clever
Geisha girl suffer many times a fool
Sayonara moon
When all the world's a stage, oh where are you?
Tokyo Rose on the radio
Or Diz 'n Bird puttin' on the moan
Tappin' out telexes to Tupelo
Dear John, doh ra me fah so?
Let's go........call for Tokyo Joe
Walkin' tall down the Danger Zone
She hokey-kokey till the cows come home
Big shot - from the hip - neon cool
Say, when you've been around, what's left to do?
Don't know? Ask Tokyo Joe
So inscrutable her reply
"Ask no question and tell me no lie"
GI boys howlin' out for more
VIP'S purrin' "je t'adore"........
Ah so........that's Tokyo Joe

6- Party Doll
When the world outside of you
Seems to weigh too much for you
Then draw within' yourself
For there is no-one else
Well it's a sin
What I'm sayin'
But it's truth
Black and blue has turned to grey
Real life pictures gone astray
But don't give in
Imagination rules again
It's a sin
What I'm sayin'
But it's the truth
Party doll
Oh how you turn me on
Now the day's for sleepin'
For I'll be leapin' all night long
Party doll
Without you I can't go on
Now the way I'm figurin'
You'll be Leda
And I'll be Swann........
It's a sin
What I'm sayin'
But it's truth
And if our secret love
Is haunting you -
No-one can hold me
Like you used to do........
Party doll - what's your game?
Do you move, or entertain
What people say
When it don't mean a thing
It's a sin
Heads they lose
Tails you win
Party doll - I must confess
This wishin' well of loneliness
Has dragged you down
I'll wind you up - let's twist again
It's a skin
Skin to skin
Amen

7- Rock Of Ages
Once again
You're the song
I'm the one
Who turns the pages
There you go
Flying high
Here am I
Rock of ages
Ring the changes
Ring all changes
Try to move me as of old
Rock-a-bye me
Rock of ages
Tough my soul
Lost again
All alone
Turned to stone
Cold and sober
After you
There's no fun
On the run
The party's over
Ring the changes
Ring all changes
Do you move me as of old
Rock-a-bye me
Rock of ages
Touch my soul
Who can say
Here today
Where we'll stray
Gone tomorrow
After all
Is said and done
Will you stay
And share my sorrow?
Sing your praises
Sing all praises
Still you move me
Knock me cold
Rock-a-bye me
Rock of ages
You touched my soul

8- In Your Mind
Hark the frozen chimes of winter
Crystal shimmer in your mind
To the first time when you saw her
You implored her to be kind
In the open fields around you
All before you gone to ground
Both the question and the answer
Deep inside you - you shall find
And while you're strollin'
Through the summer of your years
Enchanted, a garden overgrown
Don't call me sentimental
Those of you who care
Could find there a lover and a friend.....to the end
And if you're taken
by the sprit of your age
No reason to carve a cornerstone
Sway me, trade me
Your philosophy-
First you're sowin'
Then you're growin'
Then you reap......until you sleep
Will you scale the silver studded mountain
Where contemplation'll spring to mind
See the veiled prophet's withered gaze
Reflect the "nouvelle-vague"
Glazed visions imprisoned in your mind
Unwinding rivers flowing through the meadows
To the sea - paths of glory
Through shifting glades to fall
Present laughter and the memory
Of troubles you have seen
It is written in your mind
