WILD IS THE WIND

Music and Lyrics: Dimitri Tiompkin and Ned Washington

 

CITY OF DREAMS
Music and Lyrics: Phil Shoenfelt

I’m going down to the city of dreams
Where nothing is what it seems to be
The women are evil, the streets are tough
And the boys on the corner of the neighbourhood
Are all looking at me like I’m some freakshow
Hey baby, where do you go?
When the lights go down and the heat is high
And your soul is running dry
You go down to the city
The City of Dreams
Where nothing is what it seems to be

Now I’m sitting here in my room
Where nothing is what it seems to be
The future’s unreal, the past is a dream
Everything else is in between
And the lights from the street are shining through my window
Shadows creeping all around my door
The temperature’s rising and the streets are wild
That low-rent baby, she ain’t got no style
She’s going down to the city
The City of Dreams
Where nothing is what it seems to be

Down in the City of Dreams
Nobody’s who they seem to be
The cop is a dealer, the killer’s a priest
And all of my friends are so indiscreet
And I’m looking down this old stairwell
Hotel blues have got me on the run
And I stick my cash through a hole in the wall
When I get that stuff I don’t care at all
I‘m going down to the city
The City of Dreams
Where nobody’s who they seem to be

I’m going down to the city
Down to the city
Where nothing is what it seems to be


 

WORLD AWAY
Music and Lyrics: Bruno Adams

A lightning strike
Spreads a silver sky
Across your broken window

The sweat a-drips from my face
And stings your eyes
Like the sweetest torture

The thunder claps
This bombed out city in the irons
That are the memories of survives
And I wrap my self in you
And you wrap yourself around me
And we feel a light
Burning a world away

This heat
This burning heat
Is a fire

A glowing light
Coming
Ever closer

The wind
Brings in the rain
Each tiny drop a kiss
A burning burning kiss
A world a falling world
A kiss
Burning a world away

The thunder claps
This bombed out city in the irons
That are the memories of survives
And I wrap my self in you
And you wrap yourself around me
And we feel a light
Burning a world away


 

I DREAMED I SAW ST. AUGUSTINE

Music and Lyrics: Bob Dylan

 

IS THAT YOU MY LOVER
Music and Lyrics: Bruno Adams

Is that you my lover
Anonymously swaying with the crowd on the underground
As we burst from the black to the blinding day
I look at you look at me as if we were staring at the sun
We must look away look away look away look away

Is that you my lover
Staring at the wall of faces around the keller bar
Lovingly clutching and sipping from your long island tea
As the sun begins to paint the sky your tiny hand in mine
We walk away walk away live to love another day

Is that you my lover
Who born me a child and a bitter pain
So you’re living in LA now and I’m thinking of Spain
How’s the kid like to see him call me again
Look away look away

Is that you my lover
I see from my window running through the rain
Knocking on my door jumping all wet in my bed
With your face in my hand we kiss
Don’t look away don’t look away don’t look away


 

MY DEATH

Music and Lyrics: Jacques Brel, translated by Rod McKuen

 

PREACHIN' BLUES

Music and Lyrics: Robert Johnson

 

WHO'S BEEN TALKING

Music and Lyrics: Chester Burnett (Howlin' Wolf)

 

TOWN CALLED MISERY
Music and Lyrics: Phil Shoenfelt

Oh pretty baby, we’ve been down too long
I’ve got the feeling it’s time that I was gone
Oh pretty baby, you’re looking good tonight
Your eyes are shining in the candlelight

Well I was born in a town called Misery
Between the river and the factory
Yeah, I was born to be a ramblin‘ man
I let the Devil lead me by the hand

Oh I was born in a town called Misery
Yeah, I was born in a town called Misery
And if you let me in then I’ll take you down with me

Well I was cursed with a heart so cold
I’ve been used, I’ve been bought and sold
And I know that I’m no good for you
There’s bitterness in everything that I do

Oh I was born in a town called Misery
Yeah, I was born in a town called Misery
And if you let me in then I’ll take you down with me

Oh pretty baby, you’ve been down too long
Our love was beautiful, but now it’s gone
Last night I heard you crying next to me
Feel like I’m drowning, I’ve gotta set you free

Oh I was born in a town called Misery
Yeah, I was born in a town called Misery
And if you let me in then I’ll take you down with me


 

THE SNAKE SONG

Music and Lyrics: Townes Van Zandt

 

WHERE ARE YOU MY LOVER
Music and Lyrics: Phil Shoenfelt

I‘ve been lost, I’ve been found
I buried my head in the ground
In the streets and the bars
Everybody knew me by name

And I suffered like a saint
For the money I stole and then spent
On the drugs and the booze and the moonlight
That shines when the wind blows

So where are you my lover?
Did you run for cover?
Where are you my lover
When I call your name?

I got down on my knees
I’ve been tossed like a sail on the sea
Through the heartache and struggle
I kept up my side of the deal

And I laughed at my pain
Cos the world is so fucking insane
For the wars of religion
And the wars of self-determination

So where are you my lover?
Did you run for cover?
Where are you my lover
When I call your name?

And I long for your touch
And your carnival smile
Oh I need you so bad now
Even just for a while

So where are you my lover?
Did you run for cover?

Oh my darling, take me down
You’ve been beat up and kicked to the ground
But you stand up so proud and so true
I can’t hope to contend

You don’t care anymore
You dress like a ten dollar whore
But I love you for more than the pain
And the fear that you show

For the wind in your sails
And the moon in your eyes
And the vision of truth
That cuts through my lies

So where are you my lover?
Did you run for cover?
Where are you my lover
When I call your name?


 

MORNING DEW

Music and Lyrics: Bonnie Dobson, co-written by Tim Rose

 

WE HAD AN ISLAND
Music and Lyrics: Bruno Adams

Remember we had an island
Warm wild and blue
An uncharted island
Nobody knew

The sand was a worn away carpet
And the palms of paper and glue
But the shadows of my doubts
Were cast by a love true yes it’s true

But the seas that surrounded us
Betrayed a treacherous reality
But in your arms each night
The sun would rise and that’s all I could see

But the waters were arising
And a letter came from a man of the sea
To the waves of encroaching waters you made love to me
And as I slept you simply sailed away

On a ship built for two
It’s masts made of my bones
It’s sails the skin of my body
And the hull of my soul

Remember we had an island
From its shores I watch the ships go by
On the ocean of your naked body
Laying by his side

Remember we had an island
Warm wild and blue
We had an island
Do you remember it too?
Do you remember it too?
