Tell Me To My Face 

 

And though you try to justify the meaning 

Of the note you sent this evening to my door 

You're not deceiving me 

Well, I'd have thought that you'd have known much better 

Sending 'round an unsigned letter 

Facing me would be much better now 

 

(Chorus) 

Is it just that you can't face the future with me 

Can't you tell me to my face 

You just took the coward's way to say goodbye 

How would you feel here in my place 

 

And now I know my love is lost on you 

And nothing you can say or do 

Will turn my head around the other way 

I'd have thought you'd have the decency to come and tell the truth to me 

Instead of telling lies your eyes betray 

 

(Chorus) 

Tell me to my face you're leaving now 

Tell me to my face that you're leaving now 

(Repeat First Verse and Chorus) 

Tell me to my face you're leaving now 

Tell me to my face that you're leaving now

Since You've Asked 

 

What I'll give you since you asked is all my time together 

Take the rugged sunny days, the warm and rocky weather 

Take the roads that I have walked along, looking for tomorrow's time 

Peace of mind 

 

As your life spills into mine, changing with the seasons 

Filling up the world with time, changing time to reasons 

I can show you all the songs that I never sang to someone before 

 

We have seen a zillion stars lying by the water 

You have climbed the hills with me to the mountain shelter 

Taking off the days one by one, setting them to breathe in the sun 

 

Take the lilies and the lace from the days of childhood 

All the willow winding paths leading up and outward 

This is what I give, this is what I ask you for 

Nothing more

The Power Of Gold 

 

The story is told of the power of gold and its lure on the unsuspecting 

It glitters and shines, it badgers and blinds 

And constantly needs protecting 

 

(Chorus)

Balance the cost of the soul you lost with the dreams you lightly sold 

Are you under...the power of gold 

 

The letters and calls got you climbing the walls 

And everyone wants a favor 

They beg to remind you of times left behind you 

But you know the past is a loser 

The face you're wearing is different now 

And the days run hot and cold 

Are you under...the power of gold 

 

You're a creature of habit, run like a rabbit 

Scared of a fear you can't name 

Your own paranoia is looming before you 

And nobody thinks that it's a game 

 

Balance the cost of the soul you lost with the dreams you lightly sold 

Then tell me that you're free of the power of gold 

The power of gold 

 

The women are lovely, the wine is superb 

But there's something about the song that disturbs you 

The women are lovely, the wine is superb 

But there's something about the song that disturbs you 

The women are lovely, the wine is superb 

But there's something about the song that disturbs you
