Just Another Night lyrics - Cat Stevens

I remember standing here
Right on this very same site
I was dying but for you
It was just another night
You once rocked me in your world
You bought me my first shoes
I was just another lonely child
Oh and you were much amused

So you took me and you dressed me well
All for your friends to see
Drained my body calmly till
There was no more left in me
Then you walked out and you cut me cold
Out on the road somewhere
Why it happened well I don't know
And I still have no idea

But everybody needs a friend sometimes
You need a little help
And who knows maybe one day you'll seek mine
Only time will tell
You once held me in your arms
You made me feel so right
I was flying but for you
It was just another night

But everybody needs a little help
Whether or not you think you really do
Everybody needs a little help
Now the time has come for you

I ain't looking to fight no wars
No more talking trash
I'm not seeking any more pain
Cause i've had enough of that
But don't you worry it's alright
If you should come around
Any night or any day
I won't ever let you down

Daytime lyrics - Cat Stevens

In the daytime time for celebration
No use looking down if it's over here
It's a world a new creation
And the golden light of the morning
Makes it easy to comb your hair
And the love of a child
It's the time of the year

In the daytime you can move a mountain
With a blink of your eye
Now it's over here now it's over there
It's a world with no complications
And the curtains on the window
Start blowing like your hair
And the love that I feel
Cause it's the time of the year

Mysterious moon found me crying in the dark
Heard my footsteps on the stairs
Mysterious moon found me crying
But the sun dried my tears
Showed he cares

In the daytime time for celebration
No use looking down children open your eyes
It's a world a whole nation
Now the white boats have landed
And the innocent are here
So dream for the child
Cause it's the time of the year

Bad Brakes lyrics - Cat Stevens

Bad brakes whole car shakes
Looks like I'm heading for a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
I must be heading for a breakdown

I pulled up for a mouth of coca-cola
Down at Samuel's cafe
Saw a little spanish lady coming over
Said "lady are you going my way" she said "o-lay"

Bad brakes carburettor shakes
Looks like you're heading for a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
We must be heading for a breakdown

We hit the road at 90 miles an hour
Heading for 'Frisco Bay
She said "Senor you got cop on your shoulder"
I said "oh now we'd better not stay
We got to get away with our
Bad brakes carburettor shakes
Looks like we're heading for a breakdown"

He was catching up nose right inside our mirror
When the motor blowed
We climbed out and she began to shiver
Oh no sir please let us go
He said "don't you know you got
Bad brakes carburettor shakes
Looks like you bought yourself a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
And you've got yourself a breakdown"

Bad brakes engine beginning to shake
Looks like we've got ourselves a breakdown
Black smoke engine beginning to choke
We got ourselves a breakdown

Randy lyrics - cat stevens

Oh Randy if they knew
I think they'd take me away
Just for loving you you
All alone in my own quiet way
Cause that's the way that I want it

Wish I could see you now
You and your cherry black eyes
My heart would never lie down down
Cause that's the way my arrow flies
And that's the way that I want it

You never said it would rain
You only told me that the sun would come again
You never said it would rain
Oh Randy if you did
It wouldn't mean a thing
It wouldn't hurt me a bit
Cause only you can break my wings
And that's the way that I want it

You drew my face in the sand
And ever since that day you made me what I am
You drew my face in the sand
Oh Randy if I could
There's nothing I wouldn't give
To live with you for good
Cause that's the way i'd like to live
And that's the way that I want it

Randy oh my Randy
Randy oh my Randy
Randy oh my Randy

Last Love Song lyrics - Cat Stevens

If you don't love me
Please don't treat me this way
Cause I can't stand it
I see our love slipping away
Did you think you could just put me down
Like a worn out shoe
Cause if you don't want me
Maybe I don't want you

If you don't need me
Don't leave me out in the cold
Eyes drifting by me
Like somebody you don't know
Did you think that you could just walk away
Anytime you wanted to
Cause if you don't love me
Maybe I don't love you

Did you think that you could just put me down
For somebody new
Cause nobody can love you girl like I do
Every little bird in the sky
Would sing a song of love

If you would just take me back
Come on open up your heart again
Let me in baby baby

If you don't love me
Stop fooling yourself
No more acting
I know your show too well
Did you think that you could just shake my hand
With a how d'y'do
Cause if you don't want me
Maybe I don't want you

Oh and as you go through life
It's the little things that come back again
If you came back again
You know i'd give my loving to you

Father lyrics - Cat Stevens

Father oh Father
Hear me if you can
Is it true what they say
That life is a dream
I don't understand
The things that make rain in my eyes
Are they real or are they lies

You know I hear so much about you now
I'd give anything
To go on a little boat with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a little boat with you

Father oh Father
Guide me if you can
Or give me the chance to follow you home
I am your son but I wish I knew you
When you were young
Were you lonely as a boy

You know i'd give so much to see you now
I'd go anywhere
Pick a little stick and walk with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a short walk with you

Father oh Father
You give me just a little hope
I feel something out there reaching for me
Well here I am
Won't you take me with you
Out of this maze
And away from this place

Because it gets so cold and lonely here
I'll do anything
To sit on a little rock with you
Talk about the scheme of things
On a small rock with you

Show me show me show me the way
Before they grind me down
And bleach me grey
Send me power not to be afraid
And when I close my eyes
Let me see you once in the light

Father oh Father
Heal me if you can
Is it true what they say
That life is a dream

New York Times lyrics - Cat Stevens

New York poor New York
New York poor New York

Cars choking your child to death
But you don't wanna see
Cause you only think about yourself
How blind can you be

New York poor New York
Sniper on the rooftop New York
New York poor New York
Not fit for a dog in New York

Everybody bites on the Big Apple
Leave the hungry in tears
But no one gives a damn no one really cares
How they feel they're just paper people not real

You need a gun to walk into New York

Now you're broke and you're out on a ledge
Who can help you this time
Now you're down to your very last cent
Still you're askin' me who was your friend
I was your friend

New York poor New York
Who turned the lights out in New York

New York poor New York
Just another blackout in New York

Girl dead on the 26th floor
But no one knew her name
Found her body behind the door
Too young for the game

New York poor New York
Devils in the subway New York
New York poor New York
New York poor New York
Talkin talkin talkin - watch out
Harlem touching midtown New York
New York poor New York

Talkin 'bout New York New York
Money's getting tighter New York
They're burning the bridges to New York

Never lyrics - Cat Stevens

I know there'll be another time
There's going to be another moment
There'll never be another you
There's going to be another story
There's so much left for you to do love

There'll never be another you
There's going to be another spring
And it won't always be winter
And it'll always be spring
There's going to be another kingdom
There's so much left for you to know love

There'll never be another you
Will be there when you need me
Darling you'll Just have to say
But you know I'll be there anyway
You've got to have faith in me darling
Gut to have faith in yourself
Faith in your wealth

I know there'll be another spring
And it won't always be winter
And it'll always be spring
There's going to be another story
There's so much left for you to know love
There'll never be another you
There'll never be another you
There'll never be another you love

(Remember The Days Of The) Old Schoolyard lyrics - Cat Stevens

Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed
And needed love... yes, I do
Oh and I remember you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to cry a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had simplicity and we had
Warm toast for tea and we laughed
And needed love.. yes, I do
Oh and I remember you

You were my sweet love, my first sweet love
My lovey dove, my love lovey dove
No matter what place, whichever the place
I still see your face, your smiling face
In childish dreams, inside my dreams
Like King and Queen, God save our dreams
N'though time may face, though time may fade
It ain't never too late, to learn about love
Learn about love

Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed
And needed love... yes, I do
Oh and I remember you

Life lyrics - cat stevens



Life you make it what it is
Love can change it with a kiss
Love can take you by the hand
Love can drop you where you stand

But still you want to have it all
You like to live it up
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough

Life you make it what it is
Love can change it with a kiss
She can turn your head around
He can lift you off the ground

But still you want to have it all
You like to live it up
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough
But still you want to have it all
I thought you had enough

Love you make it what it is
Life can change it with a kiss
Love, love, love, love

Killin' Time lyrics - Cat Stevens

People polishing guns
They've got nothing better to do
Though they think they're having fun
They're just living to die, if they but knew
Now, now

All day long they sit at home
Waiting for the milk to come
Watch them turn into stone
Thinking 'bout the things they might have done,
Now, now

You missed the point, you missed the point
You really missed the point

Everybody's got to know
Love's the reason we're here
No matter which way you go
Love's gonna meet you there

Killing time, killing time
Killing time, killing time

You missed the point, you really missed the point
Made me cry, I wonder why, why
You missed the point, you missed the point
You really missed the point

Bonfire lyrics - Cat Stevens

I can't budge baby I can't move without your
love to guide me
I don't know honey that's the truth what laid
you down beside me,
Heat me with your love oh, your lips were meant
for mine
Nobody else can bake me like a, no no no, like a-
Bonfire, your love is like a bonfire burning deep
within me
Now some folks said it's no good to smoke in bed
Umm, but I just turn off my ears and I jump into
the fire again

I feel so weak, yea, I can't sleep without you there
to hold me
Promise me you won't ever leave or I would die
so coldly,
Kiss me with your eyes, please don't let it rain
Don't kick no dust on my-
Bonfire, your love is like a bonfire burning deep
within me
Now it just grows, no matter where the wind blows
Yeah but since you touched me I can't hide it
I've been so delighted with you

Yeah, heat me with your love, ah ah
You opened up my heart, I just can't live
without you,
Oh, I just couldn't live another day, your my-
Bonfire, your love is like a bonfire burning deep
within me
Now some folks said it's no good to smoke in bed
uh, huh
But I just take off my clothes and I jump into
the fire again

(I Never Wanted) To Be A Star lyrics - Cat Stevens

I was seventeen, you were working for
Matthew and Son,
The Beatles met the Queen, and I wrote
I'm gonna get me a gun, yeah, yeah
It was like a dream in the star machine,
oh, no, izitso, izitso?
I never wanted to be a star, I never wanted
to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart
I never wanted to be la-de-da, go to parties
'avec le bourgeois'
I only wanted to sing my song well,
So I could ring a small bell in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was on the road, sleeping between lorry
lights, oh no
Stone-drunk and cold, heading into a bad
night, yeah, yeah
Just another bean in the star machine, hi ho,
here I go, here I go

I never wanted to be a star buy my mum a
Ferrari car
I only wanted to run my own race,
So I could win a small place in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Nature found a way, it picked me up off the
dark side, yeah, yeah
Showed me another day, it made me sing
'I think I see the light'
Not another bean in the star machine, oh no,
this time I won't go
I never wanted to be a star, I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart

Crazy lyrics - Cat Stevens


I'm crazy 'bout you baby, my my my
You love just drives me crazy, heaven knows
why
So let me love you while, the moon's still high
Guarantee you we'll have a good time
Making love under the stars

I feel the earth move when I'm in your arms
Got the River Nile in my veins
And when you're with me, darling I could be
The white rabbit falling into space
Look at him go

I crazy 'bout you baby, my my my
You love just drives me cuckoo, heaven knows
why
So let me love you while, the moon's still high
Let yourself go and have a good time
Making love under the stars

I see the lights dance when we're holding hands
It's like magic being with you
And when I'm dogged out, I still dream about
All the simple things that you do
All the little things

I crazy 'bout you baby, my my my
You love just drives me crazy, heaven knows
why
So let me love you while, the moon's still high
Let yourself go and have a good time
Making love under the stars

Sweet Jamaica lyrics - Cat Stevens

Other people come and go
They try to make it through
I have to smile and tell them no
Cause I only care for you
I only care for you
Yes, you are my sweet, sweet Jamaica
Country mama, brown country girl
When you touch me I, I feel so tall
If you let me down boy I'd be so small
Yes, you are my sweet Jamaica
Country mama, brown country girl

Everybody needs a friend
To brighten up their world
I know you'll never let me down
Cause you're not that kind of girl, no no no

I want to see you round every turn
You're my world far as I'm concerned
Got no time to runabout
Just Want to spend my life out with you, only you
Yes, you are my sweet, sweet Jamaica,
Country mama, brown country girl
Oh, yes you are
Sweet Jamaica, oh brown country girl, ooh

Child For A Day lyrics - Cat Stevens

I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day
We were the children
Who sang in the morning
We were the children
Who laughed at the sun
Who listened to those who spoke with their wisdom
We are the ones we would say, but

We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

We are the men who worry of nothing
We are the men who fight without aim
We listen to no one, yet speak of our wisdom
We are the pawns in the game

We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

I was a child
Who ran full of laughter
I was a child who lived for today
My eyes full of sunshine
My heart full of smiles
I was a child for a day

We're getting older as time goes by
A little older with everyday
We were the children of yesterday

Novim's Nightmare lyrics - Cat Stevens


Once I had a dream, that worried me
Like a drunken guillotine
Lingering just above my head
Why, why, why, why?
Why was I born "The Nine"
Cursed repeatedly
Who would know if I should die.
No one needed me
Doo doo doo doo doo

Dark and empty was the place to which I'd come
Cold and silent was the house my name was on
Nine rooms and a tomb in every one
S'dark and empty was the place to which I'd come

All at once my bones began to change
I was tall and young again,
Sweet as rain falling on the snow
Who, who, who, who?
Who is he, who am I, and
What laid in between?
How can I say goodbye? No one let me in
Can't see no need for Nine no more
Now it's too late to open the door.
