Baby...Please lyrics - Dave Mason

I think I'll lose an hour or two
With you beside the water
Don't lose time in bringing me
That good thing that you ought to

Baby... please
You've got me scraping my knees
Baby... please
Please, please, don't make me go back to the freeze

Every time that I try to connect girl
Well, it seems that your line is engaged
I'm a slave to the way that you move me
I'm a puppy dog wagging my tail

Baby... please
You've got me scraping my knees
Baby... please
Please, please, don't make me go back to the freeze

Staring out of windows like a helpless child
Pouring down the whiskey like it's goin' out of style
Trying to tell myself that everything is fine
In a big rubber room with a silver spoon still on my mind

Well, I'm pacing the floor like a tiger
Living nights that have passed into days
Looking over my shoulder
To catch anything coming my way

Baby... please
You've got me scraping my knees
Baby... please
Please, please, don't make me go back to the freeze



Misty Morning Stranger lyrics - Dave Mason

We all know that love is a small word
And yet it encompasses all
Well, I tell you we live in a small world
So we better answer the call

It's hard to explain what I'm feeling
But my soul ain't about to be born
With the turn of the wheel I'll be back on the heels
Of a dream I have drew long ago

Passing light of the morning fire unfolds across your face
In a web of gleaming jewels, there hangs a sleeping fool
The sharpness of the morning air brings to mind a silent prayer
He speaks to all of us that care, the misty morning stranger

The guilt that you feel will not heal you in the universal flow
Just turn yourself, under yourself, then the freedom we seek will show
Don't ever doubt what your heart says when everything 'round you says no
Just the pace of the game can drive you insane
So relax and let everything flow

Passing light of the morning fire unfolds across your face
In a web of gleaming jewels, there hangs a sleeping fool
The sharpness of the morning air brings to mind a silent prayer
He speaks to all of us that care, the misty morning stranger

Misty morning stranger
Misty morning stranger
Misty morning stranger
Misty morning stranger
Misty morning stranger

Misty morning stranger
Misty morning stranger



It's Like You Never Left lyrics - Dave Mason

There's a dream keeps returning
Like the rain to the sea
There's a fire ever burning
In the souls of the free

There's a lifetime of learning
But before you can rest
Take a look at yourself, boy

It's like you never left
It's like you never left
It's like you never left

I feel some confusion, when I'm not with you
Well I've got to get back
Where it's green and it's blue

There's a part of me learning
That it's all been in jest
At the end of your journey

It's like you never left
It's like you never left
It's like you never left
It's like you never left never went away



Show Me Some Affection lyrics - Dave Mason

To some, I am a blessing, to others, I'm a curse
I'm a writer, not a fighter, I'm a person, not a purse
I may be just an easy touch and taken for much more
But I just came to leave a little loving at your door

Ooh, show me some affection
Ooh, give me some direction
Ooh, know you're my connection

Just a jet-age gypsy looking for a gypsy queen
I sometimes think I'm on the brink of knowing what I mean
Cities come and cities go but still I cannot find
A place to call a home when there's a woman on my mind

Ooh, show me some affection
Ooh, give me some direction
Ooh, know you're my connection

If hanging out with you was spent in hanging in
I'd still be out of time with time just waiting to begin
Have no preconceived ideas of how things have to be
I'll just take life as it comes and hope that it takes me

Ooh, show me some affection
Ooh, give me some direction
Ooh, know you're my connection

Ooh, show me some affection
Ooh, give me some direction
Ooh, you know you're my connection


Every Woman lyrics - Dave Mason

Don't misunderstand me, though
I know that I've been mean
Woman can't you see that I'm in need
Although we may be far apart
In heart and soul we're near
My body aches for you to just be here

You are every woman in the world to me
And every season I go through
You are every woman in the world to me
Especially when I'm making love to you

Like a falling tear drop
You can wipe away my blues
Live honey you can make the bitter sweet
You're a child, a girl, a woman
You are everything I'd choose
That's why I sing this song to you
That's why I sing this song to you


Bring It On Home To Me lyrics - Dave Mason (originally by Sam Cooke)

If you ever change your mind
About leaving, leaving me behind
Oh-oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me

I know I laughed when you left
But now I know I only hurt myself
Oh-oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me

I'll give you jewelery and money, too
That ain't all, that ain't all I'll do for you
Oh, if you bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me

You know I'll always be your slave
'Til I'm buried, buried in my grave
Oh honey, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me

One more thing
I tried to treat you right
But you stayed out, stayed out at night
But I forgive you, bring it to me
Bring your sweet loving
Bring it on home to me


You Can't Take It When You Go lyrics - Dave Mason

Don't try to possess me
I'll slip from your grasp
the things that you seek
have already passed
in rushing to own everything that's in sight
nothing is left
no, not even your life

You can't take it when you go
that's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
only in heart and soul

Lies can't hurt
at least that's what you say
but there'll be confusion
as sure as night turns to day
truth is a feeling you just can't deceive
life's an illusion
when you don't believe

You can't take it when you go
that's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
only in heart and soul

[repeat]

Over and over
day after day
life's precious moments are wasting away
if dreams are the schemes on which future's are made
dream on sweet dreamer
til you reach your grave

You can't take it when you go
that's something that you oughta know
Love isn't counted in gold
only in heart and soul


Split Coconut lyrics - Dave Mason

You Can Lose It lyrics - Dave Mason

She tells you she loves you, calls you her man
But you're only just a small part of her plan
One minute she'll make you feel just like a king
The next make you crazy and forget how to sing

You can lose it and it won't be back at all
You can lose it and it won't be back at all

Everything that you do is just for her needs
But she's never said thank you and she's never said please
She'll destroy any talent that you ever had
And curse you for not being more of a man

You can lose it and it won't be back at all
You can lose it and it won't be back at all
(Won't be back at all)

Time and again she's had you up against the wall
Friends of all told you but she does not hear them at all, no, no, no
Dance in the fire before life goes by
'Cause you're gonna end up alone

She tells you she loves you, calls you her man
But you're only just a small part of her plan
One minute she'll make you feel just like a king
The next make you crazy and forget how to sing

You can lose it and it won't be back at all
You can lose it and it won't be back at all
(Won't be back at all)

Long Lost Friend lyrics - Dave Mason

I listen to what you say
'Cause Lord knows I want to believe you
But something inside my heart
Says the words that you tell me are false tunes

Here it comes again
Then it's gone like a long lost friend
It's with us until the end
The fears that you had will become you

You must take upon yourself
To do what you must do
And yet you keep asking yourself
Why the answers you seek still avoid you

Here it comes again
Then it's gone like a long lost friend
It's with us until the end
The fears that you had will become you

Sunshine follows the raindrops
Rainbows follow the dew
I keep following this heart of mine
My heart keeps following you

Here it comes again
Then it's gone like a long lost friend
It's with us until the end
The fears that you had will become you
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah



We Just Disagree lyrics - Dave Mason

Been away, haven't seen you in a while
How've you been, have you changed your style?
And do you think that we've grown up differently?
Don't seem the same, seems you've lost your feel for me

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye
There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy
There's only you and me and we just disagree
Ooh-hoo-hoo, oh-oh-ho

I'm going back to a place that's far away
How bout you, have you got a place to stay?
Why should I care when I'm just trying to get along?
We were friends, but now it's the end of our love song

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye
There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy
There's only you and me and we just disagree
Ooh-hoo-hoo, oh-oh-ho

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye
There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy
There's only you and me and we just disagree
Ooh-hoo-hoo, oh, oh-oh-ho


So High (Rock Me Baby And Roll Me Away) lyrics - Dave Mason

Tellin' you darlin' we can do it in style
My imagination is drivin' me wild
'Cause the things that you're sayin'
Cuttin' right through me
Way that you're swayin'
Is gonna undo me and I'm

So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away
So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away

Baby you know you're lookin' good tonight
I don't know what's wrong or what's right
'Cause you're shaking me up
I'm lost in the feeling
Taking me up
Up to the ceiling, it's

So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away
So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away

Somewhere deep inside my mind
Emotions feeling right
Lay me down and hold me close
Take me through the night
Rock me baby

If you're looking for an ornate man
Baby, I'm doing the best I can
'Cause I'm takin' my time
Finding ways
Out of my mind
All I can say is that I'm

So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away
So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away

Keep on rocking me baby
Keep on rocking me baby
Roll me away

[x4]
So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away
So high (you got me movin')
Rock me baby
Roll me away


Let It Go, Let It Flow lyrics - Dave Mason

When I'm alone
I sometimes get to thinkin'
How it's gonna be
When we're gone?
Are we movin' closer together

Or is it gonna take for ever and ever
Let it go (let it go)
Let it flow like a river
Let it go
Let it flow thru you
Let it go
Let it flow live a river
Let it go
Let it flow thru you

Searchin' everywhere just tryin' to find the reason
For misunderstanding and doubt
Don't wanna preach it
Push it or teach it
Just take a good look all around

Or is it gonna take for ever and ever
Let it go (let it go)
Let it go
Let it flow thru you
Let it go
Let it flow live a river
Let it go
Let it flow thru you

Walls are gonna fall and angel's gonna call on you
To help you on your way
Time spent together like now is forever

So don't ever let love slip away

Or is it gonna take for ever and ever
Let it go (let it go)
Let it go
Let it flow thru you
Let it go
Let it flow live a river
Let it go
Let it flow thru you


Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow lyrics - Dave Mason

Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
