Diamond Life

  1. Smooth Operator-

he's laughing with another girl
and playing with another heart.
placing high stakes, making hearts ache.
he's loved in seven languages.
diamond nights and ruby lights, high in the sky.
heaven help him, when he falls.
diamond life, lover boy.
we move in space with minimum waste and maximum joy.
city lights and business nights.
when you require streetcar desire for higher heights.

no place for beginners or sensitive hearts
when sentiment is left to chance.
no place to be ending but somewhere to start.

no need to ask.
he's a smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator.

coast to coast, la to chicago, western male.
across the north and south, to key largo, love for sale.

face to face, each classic case.
we shadow box and double cross,
yet need the chase.

a license to love, insurance to hold.
melts all your memories and change into gold.
his eyes are like angels but his heart is cold.

no need to ask.
he's a smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator.

coast to coast, la to chicago, western male.
across the north and south, to key largo, love for sale.

smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator,
smooth operator...

  2. Your Love Is King-

your love is king,
crown you in my heart.

it's making my soul sing.
tearing the very heart of me.

tearing the very heart of me.
i'm crying out for more.

touching the very part of me.
it's making my soul sing.
i'm crying out for more.
your love is king.

this is no sad and sorry dream.
this is no blind faith
your love...
your love is real... gotta crown me with your heart,
never, never need to part,
touch me.
never letting go,
never letting go,
never going to give it up.

  7. Sally-

sally, you opened out your arms to all those young men.
and girl you had room,
for every one of them.

you're the only girl.
who are the only girl on barry and third
sure as hell,
you're the only one who cares.

so put your hands together for sally.
she saved all those young men.
put your hands together for sally.
she the one who cared for them.

she's doing our dirty work.
she's the only one who can.
doing our dirty work, thirsty world,
one angry day in new york.

take a look at dave he was once seventeen,
zoot suit and shiny shoes.
he ran around town and threw his metholated laughter.
most of his memories drowned.

but he remembers what his mother used to shout.
she used to shout,
"one day, surely son,
the street are gonna tire you out."

so put your hands together for sally.
she's the one who cared for him.
put your hands together for sally.
she was there when his luck was running thin.

she's doing our dirty work.
she's the only one who can.
doing our dirty work, thirsty world,
one angry day in new york.

tommy had a wife and family,
but the needle came between the love and the hard times.
thank god for sally,
she was there through the misery.

just a place to lay his head.
just about better off than dead.

she's doing our dirty work.
she's the only one who can.
doing our dirty work, thirsty world,
one angry day...

vince, came up from the country.
couldn't even find himself a room.
thinking about his babies.
they're further away than the moon.

with no money but his pride in his pocket.
there's really no way he can go home.
there's a picture of his woman in his locket.
most of all he doesn't want to be alone.

so put your hands together for sally.
she's the one who cared for him.
put your hands together for sally.
she was there when his luck was running thin.

she's doing our dirty work.
she's the only one who can.
doing our dirty work, thirsty world,
one angry day in new york.

  3. War Of The Hearts-

i could aim
but i could not fire
got a bullet to spare
to kill my desire

who's calling the shots
one of us must make the peace
to have or to have not
the fire has got to cease

i'm loaded

it's a sin
how we hit where it hurts

  4. You're Not The Man-

you're not the man who gave me everything
i've ever wanted

you're not the man
who stepped inside my life
and haunted every, every day

you're not the man
who said he'd never leave
couldn't breathe
and could not sleep without me

that was someone who you left behind
a long time ago

you're not the man
who would bleed for me
never shed a tear
you're not the one
said he'd always be near

you're not the man
who threw me a lifeline
and you're not the man
i am so proud to call mine

and you're not the one
who said he'd never leave
the one who made me believe in me
that was someone who could do no wrong
but you lost him

you're not the man
who would bleed for me
but never shed a tear
you're not the one
who said he'd always, always, always be here
said he'd always, always be near

but don't get me wrong
although it seems sad
it's not all bad
you see
i'm not the little girl i used to be

you're not the man
not the one
who said he'd always, always, always be near

he was everything you see
he made me believe in me
said he'd always, always, always be here

  5. Jezebel-

jezebel wasn't born with a silver spoon in her mouth
she probably had less than every one of us
but when she knew how to walk she knew
how to bring the house down
can't blame her for her beauty
she wins with her hands down

jezebel, what a belle
looks like a princess in her new dress
how did you get that?
do you really want to know she said
it would seem she's on her way
it's more, more than just a dream
she put on her stockings and shoes
had nothing to lose - she said it was worth it

reach for the top
and the sun is gonna shine
every winter was a war she said
i want to get what's mine

jezebel, jezebel
won't try to deny where she came from
you can see it in her pride
and the raven in her eyes
try show her a better way
she'll say you don't know what you've been missing
and by the time she blinks you know she won't be listening

reach for the top she said
and the sun is gonna shine
every winter was a war she said
i want to get what's mine

  6. Mr. Wrong-

he don't care
where he's been playing
he doesn't hear
a word she's saying
she's a fancy girl
so why's she staying
hanging on for mr. wrong

he doesn't show her that he needs her
she doesn't know his love's a liar
she's a fancy girl - got to be strong
say so long - mr. wrong
bye bye

get out on your own girl
show him how
you can be strong girl
you don't need him now
run away, pretty girl
say so long - mr. wrong
run away
bye bye

  7. Punch Drunk- Sweetback intramental.

  8. Never As Good As The First Time-

good times they come and they go
never going to know
what fate is going to blow
your way just hope that it feels right
sometimes it comes and it goes
you take it ever so slow
and then you lose it, then it flows right to you

so we rely on the past
special moments that last
were they as tender as we dare to remember
such a fine time as this
what could equal the bliss
the thrill of the first kiss
it'll blow right to you

it's never as good as the first time
never as good as the first time

good times they come and they go
never going to know
it's like the weather
one day chicken next day feathers
the rose we remember
the thorns we forget
we'd love and leave
we never spend a minute on regret

it is a possibility
the more we know the less we see
second time, second time is not quite what it seems
natural as the way we came to be
second time won't live up to the dream

it's never as good as the first time
never as good as the first time

natural as the way we came to be
second time won't live up to the dream
natural as the way we came to be
second time is not quite what it seemed

it's never
as good as the first time
as the first time (never as good as the first time)
the first time

natural as the way we came to be
second time won't live up to the dream
natural as the way we came to be
second time is not quite what it seemed

it's never
as good as the first time
as the first time (never as good as the first time)
the first time

  9. Fear-

blue is the colour of the red sky
will he, will he come home tonight
blue is the colour that she feels inside
matador i can't hide my fear anymore

azul es el color del rojo cielo
volvera, volvera a mi esta noche
azul es el color que siente a dentro
matador no puedo esconder mi temor

can she tame the beast that is her fear
puede domar la fiera que es su temor
waiting for her matador
will they bring the bad news

blue is the colour that she feels inside
matador i can't hide my fear anymore

azul es el color del rojo cielo
volvera, volvera a mi esta noche
azul es el color que siente a dentro
matador no puedo esconder mi temor

  10. Tar Baby-

grandma came to see
something she could not believe
how could her girl be
so naive

tar baby, tar baby
told the secret she conceived

oh, that big old smile of yours
could turn the wind into a song
how could i have doubted
honey it's with me that you belong

tar baby, tar baby
i love you so
(i love you)

like a brand new blade
you cut into my life
cut through two decades
like a hot coal on ice

tar baby, my tar baby
it maybe, was meant to be
when i look at you
i can't believe my eyes
and with your magic
i think you just might charm the birds out of the skies

tar baby, tar baby
came good out of grief

a golden thread inside of the web
that i got caught in
oh, it's a lover's revenge, but out of the pain
come the best things you see

you cut into my life
you cut into my life (baby baby baby baby don't you know that)
you cut into my life (i love you)
you cut into my life

la la la la la ooh
you can turn the wind into a song
la la la la la baby baby baby
it's with me you belong

  11. Maureen-

maureen
it's hard to explain
i'm never gonna see you again
and you'll never meet my new friends

maureen, i miss you
i just can't explain
i'm never gonna see you again
i wish you could meet my new friends

walking along the subway listening to
loving you is easy acapella
you were a souped-up car in that rent-a-go-cart town
and i miss you maureen

we're as thick as thieves

maureen, maureen
remember when my mother said to me
sade don't you come home too late
till you're back i stay awake

and maureen
with the boys you could tell at a glance
you'd say he looks good
let's hope he can dance
wicky wacky party to the...

where are we going tonight
and what will you be wearing
shone like a souped-up car in that rent-a-go-cart town
and i miss you maureen, i miss you girl

you were my best friend
never gonna see you again, maureen
and you'll never meet my new friends
you really were a pearl in my world, maureen

maureen
it's hard to explain
you'll never call 'round to see me again
you'll never meet my new friends

never meet my new friends
never meet my new friends
never meet my new friends

Stronger Than Pride

  1. Love Is Stronger Than Pride-

i won't pretend that i intend to stop living
i won't pretend i'm good at forgiving
but i can't hate you
although i have tried
mmmm

i still really really love you
love is stronger than pride

i won't pretend that i intend to stop living
i won't pretend i'm good at forgiving
but i can't hate you

mm mm mm mm mm

sitting here wasting my time
would be like
waiting for the sun to rise

sitting here waiting for you
would be like waiting for winter
it's gonna be cold
there may even
be snow

  7. Clean Heart-

clean heart
clean and sharp
clean dream
bad start

he loved his brother and his sister
luke and tony called him mister
they made him feel much more
like a man
he loved his daddy though he never told him
and how he loved his mother
he loved
he loved her like an italian

little janet said you look so fine
so fine
something in his smile
made them feel like strangers
and then he straightened his belt
with a lover's touch
and he said i'm gonna bring home
the things that are out of your clutch

seemed like the hottest night in summer
a heat that makes you feel like dying

somewhere in the next block
there was a baby crying

finger on the trigger for the years to come

and as the moon slid up over the restless streets
sirens mocking and people stop to see
their greedy eyes don't realise
he's someone's son
finger on the trigger for the years to come

finger on the trigger for the years to come

  9. I Never Thought I'd See The Day-

you shed a shadow on my life
shed a shadow on a love
took the shelter out of my life
took the shelter of a lie

i could see it in your restless eyes
the truth i was hiding
the truth you could not disguise

but i never thought i'd see the day
i knew i'd need a miracle to make you stay
i knew
i needed
a miracle
and i never thought i'd see the day

you put a shadow on a love
took a shelter of a lie
took the shelter out of my life

i wish you could shelter me
shelter me now
i need a miracle
and i never thought i'd see the day

heavy with the burden of the truth
and he spoke of his dreams
broken by the burden
broken by the burden of his youth
fourteen years he said

she saw him laying at the end of my gun
hungry for life
and thirsty for the distant river
i remember his hands
and the way the mountains looked
the light shot diamonds from his eyes
hungry for life
and thirsty for the distant river
like the scar of age
written all over my face
the war is still raging inside of me

there is a woman in somalia
scraping for pearls on the roadside
there's a force stronger than nature
keeps her will alive
this is how she's dying
she's dying to survive
don't know what she's made of
i would like to be that brave

she cries to the heaven above
there is a stone in my heart
she lives a life she didn't choose
and it hurts like brand-new shoes

hurts like brand-new shoes

there is a woman in somalia
the sun gives her no mercy
the same sky we lay under
burns her to the bone
long as afternoon shadows
it's gonna take her to get home
each grain carefully wrapped up
pearls for her little girl

hallelujah
hallelujah

she cries to the heaven above
there is a stone in my heart
she lives in a world she didn't choose
and it hurts like brand-new shoes
hurts like brand-new shoes

rock climb for you
and give you a reason for it all

you kept on thinking
you were the only one
too busy thinking
love is a gun

hit me like a slow bullet
like a slow bullet
it took me some time to realise it

you kept on thinking
you were the only one
too busy thinking
love is a gun

i know the end before
the story's been told
it's not that complicated
but you're gonna need a bullet proof soul

you kept on thinking

i see them gathered see
them on the shore
i turned to look once more
and he who knows me not takes me to the belly
of darkness

the tears run swift and hard and when they fall
even the comfort of a stone would be a gain
there was a time
when i thought
i would have to give up
but i'm thankful that i'm
strong as i am and i'll try to do
the best i can

tears will run swift and tears will come that fall like rain
i pray that it's swift though tears will fall as cold as pain

i pray to the almighty
let me not to him do
as he has unto me
teach my beloved children
who have been enslaved
to reach for the light continually

so many times i prayed
so many times i've prayed
for you
prayed for you
the tears run swift and hard and cold as pain
even the comfort of a stone would be a gain
had i not the strength and wisdom of a warrior
i would have to give up
but i'm thankful that i'm
strong as i am
and i'll try to do the best i can

tears will run swift and tears will come that fall like rain
i pray that it's swift though tears will fall as cold as pain

i pray to the almighty
let us not do as he has unto us
teach my beloved children
i've been a slave
but reach for the
light continually

wisdom is the flame
wisdom is the brave warrior who will carry us into the sun
i pray that it's swift though tears will come that fall like rain

  7. The Sweetest Gift-

quietly while you were asleep
the moon and i were talking
i asked that she'd always keep you protected
she promised you her light that you so gracefully carry
you bring your light and shine like morning
and then the wind pulls the clouds across the moon
your light fills the darkest room
and i can see the miracle that keeps us from falling
she promised
all the sweetest gifts
that only the heavens
could bestow
you bring your light and shine like morning
and as you so gracefully give her light as long as you live
i will always remember
this moment

  9. Immigrant-

coming from where he did
he was turned away from
every door like joseph
to even the toughest among us
that would be too much
he didn't know what it was
to be black
'til they gave him his change but didn't want to touch
his hand
to even the toughest among us
that would be too much

isn't it just enough
how hard it is to live
isn't it hard enough
just to make it through a day

the secret of their fear
and their suspicion
standing there looking
like an angel
in his brown shoes
his short suit
his white shirt
and his cuffs a little frayed
coming from where he did
he was such a dignified child
to even the toughest among us
that would be too much


isn't it just enough
how hard it is to live
isn't it hard enough
just to make it through a day

coming from where he did
he was turned away from
every door like joseph
to even the toughest among us
that would be too much
he didn't know what it
was to be black
'til they gave him his change but didn't want to touch
his hand
to even the toughest among us
that would be too much

even with nothing
you know tenderness
comes from pain
it's amazing how you love
and love is kind
and love can give
and get no gain

it's down a rugged road
you've come
though you had every reason you didn't come undone
somehow you made it to
the other side
you didn't suffer in vain

you forgive those who have trespassed against you
and you know tenderness comes from pain
it's amazing how you love
and love is kind
and love can give
and love needs
no gain

it's down a rugged road
you've come
though you had every reason you didn't come undone
somehow you made it to
the other side
you didn't suffer in vain

you didn't suffer in vain
you know it's only love
that gets you through
only love love
only love that gets
you through
