Old man look at my life, I’m a lot like you wereOld man look at my life -Twenty four and there’s so much moreLive alone in a paradiesThat makes me think of twoLove lost, such a cost,Give me things that don’t get lost.Like a coin that won’t get tossedRolling home to you.Old man look at my lifeI’m a lot like youI need someone to love me the whole day throughAh, one look in my eyes and you can tell that’s true.Lullabys, look in your eyes,Run around the same old town.Doesn’t mean that much to me to mean that much to youI’ve been first and lastLook at how the time goes past.But I’m all alone at last.Rolling home to you.
Seen a shooting star tonight and I thought of youYou’re trying to break into another worldA world I never knewI always kinda wondered if you ever made it throughSeen a shooting star tonight and I thought of youSeen a shooting star tonight and I thought of meIf I was still the same, if I ever became what you wanted me to beDid I miss the mark, overstep the line that only you could seeSeen a shooting star tonight and I thought of meListen to the engine, listen to the bellAs the last firetruck from hell goes rollin’ byAll good people are prayingIt’s the last temptation, the last accountThe last time you might hear the sermon on the mountLast radio’s playingSeen a shooting star tonight slip awayTomorrow will be another dayGuess it’s too late to say the things to you that you needed to hear me saySeen a shooting star tonight slip away

Waiting For The Miracle
Baby, I’ve been waiting,I’ve been waiting night and day.I didn’t see the time,I waited half my life away.There were lots of invitationsand I know you sent me some,but I was waitingfor the miracle, for the miracle to come.I know you really loved me.but, you see, my hands were tied.I know it must have hurt you,it must have hurt your prideto have to stand beneath my windowwith your bugle and your drum,and me I’m up there waitingfor the miracle, for the miracle to come.Ah I don’t believe you’d like it,You wouldn’t like it here.There ain’t no entertainmentand the judgements are severe.The Maestro says it’s Mozartbut it sounds like bubble gumwhen you’re waitingfor the miracle, for the miracle to come.
