Coming Back to you
Maybe I'm still hurtingI can't turn the other cheekBut you know that I still love youIt's just that I can't speakI looked for you in everyoneAnd they called me on that tooI lived alone but I was onlyComing back to youAh they're shutting down the factory nowJust when all the bills are dueAnd the fields they're under lock and keyTho' the rain and the sun come throughAnd springtime starts but then it stopsIn the name of something newAnd all the senses rise against thisComing back to youAnd they're handing down my sentence nowAnd I know what I must doAnother mile of silence while I'mComing back to youThere are many in your lifeAnd many still to beSince you are a shining lightThere's many that you'll seeBut I have to deal with envyWhen you choose the precious fewWho've left their pride on the other side ofComing back to youEven in your arms I knowI'll never get it rightEven when you bend to give meComfort in the nightI've got to have your word on thisOr none of it is trueAnd all I've said was just instead ofComing back to you
How many times did you call meAnd I knew it was lateI left everybodyBut I never went straightI don't claim to be guiltyBut I do understandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandNow my heart's like a blisterFrom doing what I doIf the moon has a sisterIt's got to be youI'm going to miss you foreverTho' it's not what I plannedThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandNow the deal has been dirtySince dirty beganI'm not asking for mercyNot from the manYou just don't ask for mercyWhile you're still on the standThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandI don't claim to be guiltyGuilty's too grandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThat's all I can say, babyThat's all I can sayIt wasn't for nothingThat they put me awayI fell with my angelDown the chain of commandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a HandThere's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand
Night Comes On
I went down to the placeWhere I knew she lay waitingUnder the marble and the snowI said, Mother I'm frightenedThe thunder and the lightningI'll never come through this aloneShe said, I'll be with youMy shawl wrapped around youMy hand on your head when you goAnd the night came onIt was very calmI wanted the night to go on and onBut she said, Go back to the WorldWe were fighting in EgyptWhen they signed this agreementThat nobody else had to dieThere was this terrible soundAnd my father went downWith a terrible wound in his sideHe said, Try to go onTake my books, take my gunRemember, my son, how they liedAnd the night comes onIt's very calmI'd like to pretend that my father was wrongBut you don't want to lie, not to the youngWe were locked in this kitchenI took to religionAnd I wondered how long she would stayI needed so muchTo have nothing to touchI've always been greedy that wayBut my son and my daughterClimbed out of the waterCrying, Papa, you promised to playAnd they lead me awayTo the great surpriseIt's Papa, don't peek, Papa, cover your eyesAnd they hide, they hide in the WorldNow I look for her alwaysI'm lost in this callingI'm tied to the threads of some prayerSaying, When will she summon meWhen will she come to meWhat must I do to prepareWhen she bends to my longingLike a willow, like a fountainShe stands in the luminous airAnd the night comes onAnd it's very calmI lie in her arms and says, when I'm goneI'll be yours, yours for a songNow the crickets are singingThe vesper bells ringingThe cat's curled asleep in his chairI'll go down to Bill's BarI can make it that farAnd I'll see if my friends are still thereYes, and here's to the fewWho forgive what you doAnd the fewer who don't even careAnd the night comes onIt's very calmI want to cross over, I want to go homeBut she says, Go back, go back to the world
I heard there was a secret chord 我的知有一种神秘的乐弦。That David played and it pleased the lord 由大卫演奏以此来取悦上帝。But you don't really care for music, do you 但你真的不关注音乐，你是这样的吗？Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth音乐却是这样起来的，第4，第5，The minor fall and the major lift 小调落下，大调升起The baffled king composing hallelujah 困惑的国王谱写了哈利路亚Hallelujah... 哈利路亚Well your faith was strong but you needed proof 你的信念很坚强，但你需要得到证明You saw her bathing on the roof 你看见她在房顶上沐浴Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you 她的美和月光震慑了你She tied you to her kitchen chair 她把你束缚在了她厨房的椅子上She broke your throne and she cut your hair 她打破了你的宝座，割断了你的头发And from your lips she drew the hallelujah 从你的嘴唇上她嗅到了哈利路亚Hallelujah... 哈利路亚You say I took the name in vain 你说我获得名字都是徒劳I don't even know the name我甚至不知道那个名字But if I did, well really, what's it to you?但是如果我拥有，那真地,对于你它又是什么？There's a blaze of light in every word 每一个字眼都有一束光It doesn't matter which you heard 你听见什么都是没关系的The holy or the broken Hallelujah 神圣的还是破碎的哈利路亚Hallelujah... 哈利路亚I did my best, it wasn't much 我尽力了还不算多I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch 我感觉不到，所以我设法碰触I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you 我讲了实话，我没有来愚弄你们And even though it all went wrong 尽管都错了I'll stand before the Lord of Song 我在歌曲神明面前挺立With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah 嘴边什么都没有，只有哈利路亚Hallelujah... 哈利路亚
06 The Captain
Now the Captain called me to his bedHe fumbled for my hand‘Take these silver bars,’ he said‘I'm giving you command.’‘Command of what, there's no one hereThere's only you and me --All the rest are dead or in retreatOr with the enemy.’‘Complain, complain, that's all you've doneEver since we lostIf it's not the CrucifixionThen it's the Holocaust.’‘May Christ have mercy on your soulFor making such a jokeAmid these hearts that burn like coalAnd the flesh that rose like smoke.’‘I know that you have suffered, lad,But suffer this awhile:Whatever makes a soldier sadWill make a killer smile.’‘I'm leaving, Captain, I must goThere's blood upon your handBut tell me, Captain, if you knowOf a decent place to stand.’‘There is no decent place to standIn a massacre;But if a woman take your handGo and stand with her.’‘I left a wife in TennesseeAnd a baby in Saigon --I risked my life, but not to hearSome country-western song.’‘Ah but if you cannot raise your loveTo a very high degree,Then you're just the man I've been thinking of --So come and stand with me.’‘Your standing days are done,’ I cried,‘You'll rally me no more.I don't even know what sideWe fought on, or what for.’‘I'm on the side that's always lostAgainst the side of HeavenI'm on the side of Snake-eyes tossedAgainst the side of Seven.And I've read the Bill of Human RightsAnd some of it was trueBut there wasn't any burden leftSo I'm laying it on you.’Now the Captain he was dyingBut the Captain wasn't hurtThe silver bars were in my handpinned them to my shirt
07 Hunter’s Lullaby
Your father's gone a-huntingHe's deep in the forest so wildAnd he cannot take his wife with himHe cannot take his childYour father's gone a-huntingIn the quicksand and the clayAnd a woman cannot follow himAlthough she knows the wayYour father's gone a-huntingThrough the silver and the glassWhere only greed can enterBut spirit, spirit cannot passYour father's gone a-huntingFor the beast we'll never cannot bindAnd he leaves a baby sleepingAnd his blessings all behindYour father's gone a-huntingand he's lost his lucky charmAnd he's lost the guardian heartThat keeps the hunter from the harmYour father's gone a-huntingHe asked me to say goodbyeAnd he warned me not to stop himI wouldn't, I wouldn't even try
08 Heart with no companion
I greet you from the other sideOf sorrow and despairWith a love so vast and shatteredIt will reach you everywhereAnd I sing this for the captainWhose ship has not been builtFor the mother in confusionHer cradle still unfilledFor the heart with no companionFor the soul without a kingFor the prima ballerinaWho cannot dance to anythingThrough the days of shame that are comingThrough the nights of wild distressTho' your promise count for nothingYou must keep it nonethelessYou must keep it for the captainWhose ship has not been builtFor the mother in confusionHer cradle still unfilledFor the heart with no companion ...I greet you from the other side ..
09 If it be your will
If it be your willThat I speak no moreAnd my voice be stillAs it was beforeI will speak no moreI shall abide untilI am spoken forIf it be your willIf it be your willThat a voice be trueFrom this broken hillI will sing to youFrom this broken hillAll your praises they shall ringIf it be your willTo let me singFrom this broken hillAll your praises they shall ringIf it be your willTo let me singIf it be your willIf there is a choiceLet the rivers fillLet the hills rejoiceLet your mercy spillOn all these burning hearts in hellIf it be your willTo make us wellAnd draw us nearAnd bind us tightAll your children hereIn their rags of lightIn our rags of lightAll dressed to killAnd end this nightIf it be your willIf it be your will.
