Lyrics

Who knows the things?
The one who knows
what are you dreaming of
of opened breast
Girl
where did you stay so long
Girl
where did you stay so long
I feel strong
the answer she gave
simply was
I'll show you where the lilies grow
at the banks of Italy
there you eased my mind

Girl
Girl
Girl

you were so kind at the banks of italy
Girl

Lyrics

I'd been a girl and one dream frequented my late afternoons
saw me in NYC wearing a sweater colour green
So one night I sat down on a chair and knitted there
hmmm
years after trying to live a woman's life
hmmm
I met a friend who had a red haired wife
she said to me "woman I like your clothes"
come on and let us try both and take tender care
but when you need help i will be there

memories and seasons achieve their affairs
sometime in april the sweater I wear
sometime in april a letter I wrote
dear friend I think of you on the top of empire state
Hmmm
dear friend I'm lonesome
dear friend i've been well
how do you spell your name
the city has changed me
I'm no longer the same
wrote to me, "woman, I'd like to stay
liberty statue s'got so many stairs
but when you need help, I'll be there"

I'd been a girl and one dream frequented my late afternoon
saw me in NYC wearing the sweater colour green

Lyrics

driving to flight number 107
with you sitting by my side
first class blue
sky and a melody brand new
almost makes me cry
don't know why

smile at your smile
time is one past eleven
you're passing me a piece of apple pie
oh it almost makes us cry
don't know why

make a sign in your car
it's the place where I've been happy
make a sign in your car
its the place where I've been happy
driving
to flight number 107
with you sitting by my side
nine miles are not too long for a farewell
with you and I close my eyes
hold you fast
and when you ask me woman
don't be sad
oh it really makes me cry
don't know why
don't know why

make a sign in your car
it's the place where I've been happy
make a sign in your car
it's the place where I've been happy
make a sign in your car
it's the place where I've been happy
go make a sign

Lyrics

You made me forget about
have, want and exert
and all of a sudden I feel proud
for being without saying a word
you made me forget about
past and pain
time you washed out
like a soft sudden summer rain

you do me good
you do me
so good you made me forget about
hmmm

You made me forget about
have, want and exert
an all of a sudden I found out
oh it's beautiful the way you wear your shirt
you do me good you made me forget about
hmmm

Lyrics

Forgett came in my house yesterday
my house that's on decay where roof and tapestry is rotten
where the fire place isn't getting hot and everything is forgotten

Forgett came in my house yesterday
don't know if he wanna stay
he lays him down like a child
in garden that's run pretty wild
and we laugh at each other's smile

I understood in my life
that never anybody else could change one's drive
but you have to prove by your own heart and hand
and though I know that I'm not out of the woods yet
I feel so good

Forgett came in my house yesterday
my house that's not for sale since we had that
sweet tea together since he sits in that leather sofa
since we're together

Forgett came in my house yesterday
my house that's on decay where roof and tapestry is rotten
where the fire place is'nt getting hot and everything is forgotten

Forgett came in my house
Yesterday

Lyrics

Give me your smile
close your eyes
don't say a word
Give me your smile
and stay and weave me your part of tenderness
Give me a little smile while I lie by your side
beyond words we rest
so leave the best unsaid
so give your smile for the while
may it guide us through the dark
give me a little smile while you lie by my side
beyond words we rest
so leave the best unsaid

Lyrics

every time I shed tears
in the last past years
when I pass through the hills
oh, what images return
oh I yearn
for the roots of the woods
that origin of all my strong and strange moods
I lost something in the hills
I lost something in the hills
I lost something in the hills

I grew up in declivities
others grow up in cities
where first love and soul takes rise
there where times in my life
when I felt mad and deprived
and only the slopes gave me hope
when I pass through the leg high grass I shall die
under the jasmin I shall die
under the elder tree
and I need not prepare for a new coming day
where is it that fills the deepness I feel
You will say I'm not Robin the Hood
But how could I hide from top to foot
that I lost something in the hills
I lost something in the hills
Oh I lost something in the hills

Now I lean on my window sill
and I cry, though it's silly
and I'm dreaming of off and away
oh I know further west these hills exist
marked by apple trees marked by a straight brook
that leads me wherever I want it to
well I lost something in the hills
I lost something in the hills
oh, I lost something in the hills

Lyrics

remember the day
when I left home to buy some food
myself in that painful february mood
I did what I could

remember that day
when I left home to just buy some food
considering if one shouldn't I or if one should
sun was high, and I
found me on the road to genoa

did you ever drive in a moonstruck constitution
and find to reach a seaport at dawn is a solution
you should If you could
there slowly, slowly, I no longer thought of what is good or what is not
there simply was the water's smell and remoteness
I only stood and watched that old cold ocean
in tender and bright, full, unspeakable emotion
I did what I could
all was good

Lyrics

I grow old I shall wear the bottom of my trousers rolled says Eliot
I grow old I shall wear the bottom of my trousers rolled says Eliot

days keep growing short, nights too
let us go then, you and I
and try to unlearn, says Eliot
he seeks for return and burns ancient love letters

let us go then you and I and lie by marble stone says Eliot
and put a record on the gramophone
Lie down dear
on the weed
Don't weep dear
gayly clad
sadness is a radical quantity says Eliot
sadness is a long brown ribbon, says he
sadness is beautiful

I grow old I shall wear the bottom of my trousers rolled says Eliot
I grow old I shall wear the bottom of my trousers rolled says Eliot

Lyrics

Sofly, in the winter time
softly, when we're about to dine
Softly in my heart of mine I talk to you
Has anybody of you two
got half a mind to go to the zoo
tonight won't you think we'd have fun
My daughter my son one by one
My daughter my son one by one

Softly in the winter time
Softly, when it goes towards nine
Softly, in my heart of mine

go feed the dog and cat and then go
to bed and have your right own dream
now be well off and start with the sun
My daughter my son one by one
My daughter my son one by one

Softly, in the winter time
Softly, when day's gonna shine
Softly, in my heart of mine I talk to you
about my actual favorite matter
that's how to live and laugh and feel better
I cut the bread for them and they run
My daughter my son one by one

off and away they set out for living
love them if ever they come, wherever they've gone
My daughter my son one by one
My daughter my son one by one
Softly

Lyrics

it's the end
friend of mine
it's the end
friend of mine

time is over
where we could simply say "I love you"
now you've opened the door
leave my crying
trying to embrace you again
trying to face this damn situation
man I can't

it's the end
friend of mine
it's the end
friend of mine

dear friend I cannot tell the reasons why
we started well, good time
give me some wine when you open the door
you seem hurt, do try to say a word to me
what on earth could really go wrong with you and me

yet, it's the end
friend of mine
it's the end
sweet friend of mine
time seems to be over
where we could simply say "I love you"
now you've opened the door
I feel cold
why can't I hold you in my arms?
told you that life is short but love is old

it's the end
friend of mine
it's the end
sweet friend

Lyrics

tonight, when I came home from work, hurt
tonight, when I came home from work
there he, unforeseen, sat in my kitchen
buttering himself a bread and the cat was on his knee and smiled at me
tonight, when I came home from work
tonight, when I came home from work
there he, unforeseen passed the guitar and said
“I battered my car right now won't you please give me your tune”
 we had change of the moon we had change of the moon
tonight, when I came home from work
tonight, when I came home from work
tonight, when I came home from work
there he, unforeseen changed in an easy chair
and said what's that sorrow you bear and I could tell him he understood
he gently took my arm he listened to my tears till dawn
I dedicate this song to you
tonight we had change of the moon
we had change of the moon
tonight, when I came home from work
tonight, when I came home from work tonight, tonight tonight

Lyrics

William was said to be a bad boy
met him behind the leaf of a door
William was
the saddest boy I ever saw
talked to me
talked to me
with his invisible tears

William was driving a dark blue car
at the moment but I'm sure he will change in a white one soon
talk to me
talk to me
let us have a green one too

promptly I took a fancy
for spending the rest of my days and nights with that boy
talk to me
talk to me
let us have a brandy or two

well, there's the heads of those
who turn away and those
who believe and believe in pure heart and hand

William must have a chorus in his heart and lilacs in his shoes
William is the sweetest boy I ever saw
talk to me
talk to me
Let us have a baby or two

Now that bad boy is away from me
but I don't mind that very much
cause when we meet again
talk to me
talk to me
let us have another day
or three

Lyrics

do you know Wim
he likes cities and I like him
do you know Wim
oh, just go and take an inner city train
and play a game and you'll meet him, Wim
do you know Wim
he likes cities and I like him

do you know Wim
he likes cities you'll find him
by the slot machines realizing dreams
it seems a very outstanding mark
that he writes a color postcard
twice a week go and seek for him
want to meet him, Wim

do you know Wim
he likes cities and I like him
do you know Wim
he likes cities and I like him
do you know Wim
oh, just go and see an cinema show
in the first row and watch him cry, him, Wim

sometimes he's not the same
sometimes he takes a plane to Vienna
maybe
he's filled up with pain
oh it's a shame
that you don't know Wim
he likes cities and I like him
that you don't know Wim
he likes cities and I like him
oh I do know Wim
I do know Wim
he likes cities
I like him
