avec le titre  For No One 

(pas d'info sur le lieu)

 

Child Of The Universe

I'm a child of South Africa
I'm a child of Vietnam
I'm a child of Northern Ireland
I'm a small boy with blood on his hands 
Yes I'm a child of the universe
Yes I'm a child of the universe
You can see me on the TV every night
Always there to join in someone else's fight 

I didn't ask to be born and I don't ask to die
I'm an endless dream, a gene machine
That cannot reason why 

Yes I'm a child of the universe
Yes I'm a child of the universe
You can see me on the TV every day
I'm the child next door three thousand miles away 

Negative Earth

For fifty-five days I've been flying around the world
Didn't anybody know, didn't anyone suppose
That my life up here was slowly drifting by
And all I've got to do is sit and cry 
The Earth is so clear and it's simply a reach away
I just had to laugh today but the news it seemed to say
That my life once full was surely running dry
I prayed a while but then I had to cry 

Look in my eyes - I know
That man is surely just a man
It's no surprise - I know
The road is far too long
And life too short to carry on 

For fifty-five days I've been flying around the world
Here in syncopated time, while my tangled web of rhyme
Dangles aimlessly, time drips slowly by
And all I've got to do is sit and cry 

Look in my eyes - I know
That man is surely just a man
It's no surprise - I know
The road is far too long
And life too short to carry on 

 

Paper Wings

His crazy frame against the dawn
His hungry leap and ragged fall
A suicidal perch is now laid bare
To searching eyes and empty stares 
A fearful silence hits the crowd
The air hangs heavy with the sound
Of useless wings against the morning sky
As paper yields before their eyes 

Oh, can you see him now?
A broken man without a dream
Oh, can you hear him now?
A futile laugh above the screams 

 

The Great 1974 Mining Disaster

Heard a song the other day
About a major out in space
And though the song was kind of grey
It took me far away 
Heard the news the other day
About a sailor oh so gay
And though his policies were grey
They took me far away
'Cause I couldn't stand the thought
Of being taken in again 

Have you seen my life, Mr. Groan?
Do you know what it's like to be outside?
All you have to do is smile to cause a landslide
And you do, and you do, Mr. Groan 

Heard a song just yesterday
About a man who sold the world away
And though the song was still quite grey
It took me far away
'Cause I couldn't stand the thought
Of being taken in again 

Have you seen my life, Mr. Groan?
Do you know what it's like to be outside?
All you have to do is smile to cause a landslide
And you do, and you do, Mr. Groan 

 

Crazy City

Running alone in the crazy city
Look at the face of once were pretty
People then wonder what happened
To make it that way 
Listen around you, have you heard?
Climb on the back of a silver bird
London to L.A. before you can think
What to say 

Stop awhile, take a smile
Know that you're living in today
Up and down, look around
No need to hide yourself away 

Out in the country's where I'm going
Back where the tree of life's still growing
Take a free ride where the tide
Flows the way of your heart 

Follow the wild dove where he's flying
Out where the sun is never crying
Wait at the gate or they'll stop you
And blow you apart 

Stop awhile, take a smile
Know that you're living in today
Up and down, look around
No need to hide yourself away 

 

See Me See You

Forgive me, child, I am sorry
I can't see your face
Forgive me, child, I am sorry
I can't hear your name

Take me, take you, lost in other worlds
Take me, take you, crazy boy, lonely girl
Far away, far away, what d'you say?
Far away, so far away
Hey Jude 

I was, you were, time was when I could
I knew you knew me
So light your light shining and star bright
Through you, through me, too


Take me, take you, lost in other worlds
Take me, take you, crazy boy, lonely girl
Far away, far away, what d'you say?
Far away, so far away
Hey Jude 

 

Poor Boy Blues

It's easy to see a poor boy's blues
When he's working every day
It's harder to be there in his shoes
He was born to be that way 
If I tell you tomorrow I'm leaving
Would you understand the reason why?
A poor boy works hard for his living
But a rich man he plays to pass the time 

So goodbye, pleased to know you
We had some laughs along the way
But I have to be leaving
And there's nothing you can do to make me stay 

If I tell you tomorrow I'm leaving
Would you understand the reason why?
A poor boy works hard for his living
But a rich man he plays to pass the time 

So goodbye, pleased to know you
We had some laughs along the way
But I have to be leaving
And there's nothing you can do to make me stay 

 

Mill Boys

Sky was black, Lord, rain came pouring down
Number 12 bus shuffling down Shaw Road way
Mules keep spinning, black-faced lifers peck the ground
Sun comes up like lightning over Tandle Hills grey 
We are mill boys, stuck on the hill boys
Stuck in the mill boys, 'till our dying day
We are mill boys, stuck on the hill boys
Stuck in the mill boys, 'till our dying day


Cotton mill will get you, boy, she'll take you to your grave
Tell you boy to use your head, apprentice out your days
You'll end up a nothing, buy, with cotton as your trade
Sun comes up like lightning over Tandle Hills grey 

We are mill boys, stuck on the hill boys
Stuck in the mill boys, 'till our dying day
We are mill boys, stuck on the hill boys
Stuck in the mill boys, 'till our dying day


It's easy to see a poor boy's blues
When he's working every day
It's harder to be there in his shoes
He was born to be that way 

 

For No One

Please lay down your pistols and your rifles
Please lay down your colours and your creeds
Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
Concentrate on what you ought to be 
Then lay down your bullshit and your protests
Then lay down your governments of greed
Take a look at what lies all around you
Then pray God we can live in peace 

Everyone's a loner 'till he needs a helping hand
Everyone is everybody else
Everyone's a no-one 'till he wants to make a stand
God alone knows how we will survive 

So please lay down your pistols and your rifles
Please lay down your colours and your creeds
Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
Concentrate on what you ought to be 

Everyone's a loner 'till he needs a helping hand
Everyone is everybody else
Everyone's a no-one 'till he wants to make a stand
God alone knows how we will survive
