  What's Wrong With The Way I Live (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
What's wrong with the way I live
The way I use my time
People should live their lives
Leaving me to mine, leaving me to mine

I'm a man who is defending
All his rights to live in peace
And my job is never ending for me

Ever since I was a young man
People tried to get at me
Tried to bring me down and hurt me
And I'm losing, losing

What's wrong with the way I live
The way I use my time
People should live their lives
Leaving me to mine, leaving me to mine

Break

They persist in rearranging
All my days to suit them best
But the future will be changing for me

I'm a man who is defending
All his rights to live in peace
And my job is never ending
But they're losing, losing

What's wrong with the way I live
The way I use my time
People should live their lives
Leaving me to mine, leaving me to mine

And they're losing



Pay You Back With Interest (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
Too many people need me
I've got so much, So much to do
But when my travelling is over
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest

It seems unfair to leave you
And sell myself the way I do
But when my wandering is over
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest

Most of my life I've been moving
And when I tire out I'll come home to you
But until then I'll be waiting
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest

How cold is my room, (How cold is my room)
Without your love beside me
We look at the same old moon (Looking at the moon)
But you're not here beside me
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest

Break

Too many people need me
I've got so much, So much to do
But when my travelling is over
I'll pay you back with interest
I'll pay you back with interest



Tell Me To My Face (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
Will you try to justify the meaning
Of the note you sent this evening
To my door, you're not deceiving me
I'd have thought that you'd have known much better
Sending round an unsigned letter
Facing me would be much better now

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

If at last I think I'm glad to rid myself of you I'm sad
To think about the time I'll have to go
Then I'll turn and walk away so please don't beg for me to stay
Cause I know just what I will say to you

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

Tell me to my face you're leaving now
Tell me to my face you're leaving now

Though you try to justify the meaning
Of the note you sent this evening
To my door, you're not deceiving me
I'd have thought that you'd have known much better
Sending round an unsigned letter
Facing me would be much better now

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



Clown (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
I see a clown painting his face once more
Before the show has started
He paints a smile on his face with his makeup now
Although he's broken hearted

But the rule of the clown is simple
And the show must go on as always
People are there to laugh at him
And he mustn't let them down

He's lost someone dear to him
And he's crying now although he doesn't show it
He gives the show of his life though he's breaking down
Although you'd never know it

But there's something different about his smile
An unfamiliar frown
Yes there's something different about him now
He's painted his smile on upside down



Suspicious Look In Your Eyes (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
You've got that suspicious look in your eyes
You've got that suspicious look in your eyes

Somehow at times I read your mind
You just float in a cloud above me
You've no control of what you say
And no faith in the things that I do

If I question you
It's not because I'm prying
I give you my best
So why don't you start trying

We used to act and think alike
No regrets after things that we'd done
You're changing all your thoughts of me
You've no right to put me down this way

I believe in you
So it seems worth trying
You sound so sincere
But when I look at you

You've got that suspicious look in your eyes
You've got that suspicious look in your eyes

Break

At times I think it seems so clear
But your eyes plague my mind, it's no use
They pierce, they glare, they seem to stare
If they spoke what a story they'd tell

I believe in you
So it seems worth trying
You sound so sincere
But when I look at you

You've got that suspicious look in your eyes
You've got that suspicious look in your eyes
You've got that suspicious look in your eyes
You've got that suspicious look in your eyes



It's You (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
Don't raise your voice to me
And don't be unkind
I'm just a foolish man
Who doesn't know his mind
There is a reason
I don't love you like I should
And it's you
Yes, it's you
Oh it's you

Try understanding
I'm a simple man at heart
The way you carry on
I think we'll drift apart
I can't afford to live
The way you want us to
So, it's you
Yes, it's you
Oh, it's you

Why can't I love you
Why can't I love you
Cause I'm not the kind of man you are looking for

If everything is wrong
We'll go our separate way
You'll have to find a man
Who does just what you say
To break up is a shame
It spoils the chance we had
But it's you
Yes, it's you
Oh, it's you

Why can't I love you
Why can't I love you
Cause I'm not the kind of man you are looking for

If everything is wrong
We'll go our separate way
You'll have to find a man
Who does just what you say
To break up is a shame
It spoils the chance we had
But it's you
Yes, it's you
Oh, it's you



High Classed (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
You're high classed
Well, your taste is good
I know I can't love you
Like I know I should
But we've got a good understanding
Ah, we've got us

You wear good clothes
When I wear rags
You got educated friends
But we've got a good understanding
We've got us


We can't be seen in public
Oh, we gotta find lowly places to go
If they see me
Walking with you
Your friends'll cut you dead
I've seen it happen, I know

You eat caviar
When I eat toast
You know I can't buy you
The things you like most
We've got a good understanding
We've got us

Ah, sing those songs

Break

We can't be seen in public
Oh, we gotta find lowly places to go
If they see me
Walking with you
Your friends'll cut you dead
I've seen it happen, I know

You eat caviar
When I eat toast
You know I can't buy you
The things you like most
We've got a good understanding
We've got us

Oh, yeah, aw, we've got us
Believe me
We've got us



Peculiar Situation (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
We take walks in storms on rainy nights
When it's cold I hold you close to me
When we dine you help me choose the wine
It's these things that mean so much to me

Ain't this a peculiar situation
We're lovers but we don't make love
But when these things mean so much to us
Well, that's all right

I don't think your father is too rich
And I know your mother has good taste
And it's not because you're beautiful
When you're busy you find time for me

Ain't this a peculiar situation
We're lovers but we don't make love
But when these things mean so much to us
Well, that's all right

But when these things mean so much to us
Well, that's all right

You do well at things that interest you
When asked out you never turn away
If you're wrong you don't mind saying so
Not too proud to phone me when you're down

Ain't this a peculiar situation
We're lovers but we don't make love
But when these things mean so much to us
Well, that's all right

Ain't this a peculiar situation
Ain't this a peculiar situation
Ain't this a peculiar situation



What Went Wrong (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
If you could look my way
You'd know that I exist
And then you'd realise
I'm waiting to be kissed
by you baby
Tell me what went wrong
With our love

Each time that you walk by
I feel my heart would break
And then I think about
The pain I'd have to take
From you baby
Tell me what went wrong
With our love

You'd be the only reason
That I'm leaving town
You'd be the only reason
Why I'd come back
For one more day
Why I'd come back
And maybe stay
If I could find out
What to say to you

Break

You'd be the only reason
That I'm leaving town
You'd be the only reason
Why I'd come back
For one more day
Why I'd come back
And maybe stay
If I could find out
What to say to you

So, I'll just pretend
That you will look my way
And I am hoping
That you'll come to me and say
Tell me baby
Tell me what went wrong
With our love
With our love
With our love



Crusader (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
All is dark
The moat is dry
Shadows fall
The roof lets in the sky
All these memories
Go round in my head
Of the life I have led

Minstrels play
Familiar melodies
And once more
The past comes back to me
All these memories
Go round in my head
Of the life I have led

The grass has grown much taller now
Over running everything
Oh, oh, since I've been gone

The grass has grown much taller now
Over running everything
Oh, oh, what have I done

Break

The grass has grown much taller now
Over running everything
Oh, oh, since I've been gone

The grass has grown much taller now
Over running everything
Oh, oh, since I've been gone

All is dark
The moat is dry
Shadows fall
The roof lets in the sky
All these memories
Go round in my head
Of the life I have led



Don't Even Think About Changing (Clarke / Hicks / Nash)
When people put you down
It's cause they're jealous of you
They shouldn't make you frown
You know as well as I do

It's cause I love you
For the things you do for me
One day they'll realise
And wish that they were me

One thing I know for sure
We both get satisfaction
That's why they're mad at us
'Cos they ain't got what we got

It's 'cos I'm happy
For the things you do for me
One day they'll realise
And wish that they were me

Don't even think about changing
You've got a life of your own

Break

Don't even think about changing
You've got a life of your own

Why don't they understand
Our feelings are sincere
One day they'll be surprised
Because we are so near

To all the things they tried
To be when they were young
That's why they don't agree
And take it out on us
It's cause I'm happy
For the things you do for me
One day they'll realise
And wish that they were me

It's cause I'm happy
For the things you do for me



Stop Stop Stop (Clarke - Hicks - Nash)
See the girl with cymbals on her fingers
Entering through the door
Ruby glistening from her navel
Shimmering around the floor

Bells on feet go ting-a ling-a linging
Going through my head
Sweat is falling just-a like-a tear drops
Running from her head

Now she's dancing, going through the movements
Swaying to and fro
Body moving, bringing back a memory
Thoughts of long ago

Blood is rushing, temperature is rising
Sweating from my brow
Like a snake, her body fascinates me
I can't look away now

Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Or I'll have to leave

Now she's moving all around the tables
Luring all in sight
But I know that she cannot see me
Hidden by the light

Closer, closer, she is getting nearer
Soon she'll be in reach
As I enter into a spotlight
She stands lost for speech

Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Or I'll have to leave

Break

Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Or I'll have to leave

Now I hold her, people are staring
Don't know what to think
And we struggle knocking over tables
Spilling all the drinks

Can't they understand that I want her
Happens every week
Heavy hand upon my collar
Throws me in the street

Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Give me time to breathe
Stop, stop, stop all the dancing
Or I'll have to leave
