One Of These Nights Album

One Of These Nights

 

One of these nights

One of these crazy old nights

We’re gonna find out

Pretty mama

What turns on your lights

The full moon is calling

The fever is high

And the wicked wind whispers

And moans

You got your demons

You got desires

Well, I got a few of my own

Oo, someone to be kind to in

Between the dark and the light

Oo, coming right behind you

Swear I’m gonna find you

One of these nights

One of these dreams

One of these lost and lonely dreams

We’re gonna find one

One that really screams

I’ve been searching for the daughter

Of the devil himself

I’ve been searching for an angel in white

I’ve been waiting for a woman who’s a little

Of both

And I can feel her but she’s nowhere

In sight

Oo, loneliness will blind you

In between the wrong and the right

Oo, coming right behind you

Swear I’m gonna find you

One of these nights

One of these nights

In between the dark and the light

Coming right behind you

Swear I’m gonna find you

Get ‘ya baby one of these nights

One of these nights

One of these nights

I can feel it

I can feel it

One of these nights

Coming right behind you

Swear I’m gonna find you now

One of these nights..etc….

Too Many Hands

 

She’s one of a kind

Sometimes hard to find

Like a rainbow

Well, she’s lost all her glory

And could tell you some stories

That we all should know

And there’s too many hands

Being laid on her

Too many eyes will never see

That it’s dragging her down

But you won’t hear a sound as

She turns ’round

Her beauty all aflight

It always seems to turn the tide

At midnight

And for her there is no rest

We are doing what is best

For our future

One of these days she may not

Be so good to you

One of these days she might

Shake you to the ground

But her fire is still

Burning

And her heart is still yearning

To be found

Hollywood Waltz

 

Springtime, and the acacias are blooming

Southern California will see one more day

Dreamland, and bus’ness is booming,

The birds are a singing as I drift away

She looks another year older,

From too many lovers who used her and ran

But some nights, oh, she looks like an angel

And she’s always willing to hold you again

So give her this dance,

She can’t be forsaken

Learn how to love her with all of her faults

She gave more than she’s taken,

And I’ll go down doing the Hollywood Waltz

Springtime and the lady is grieving

The lovers just stand there with nothing to say

They got what they wanted,

They’re packing and leaving

To look for another to love the same way

So give her this dance,

She can’t be forsaken

Learn how to love her

With all of her faults

She gave more than she’s taken

And I’ll go down doing the Hollywood Waltz

The Hollywood Waltz

Lyin’ Eyes

 

City girls just seem to find out early

How to open doors with just a smile

A rich old man

And she won’t have to worry

She’ll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night a big old house gets lonely

I guess ev’ry form of refuge has its price

And it breaks her heart to think her love is

Only given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening

To comfort an old friend who’s feelin’ down

But he knows where she’s goin’ as she’s leavin’

She is headed for the cheatin’ side of town

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

And your smile is a thin disguise

I thought by now you’d realize

There ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting

with fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal

She drives on through the nice anticipating

‘Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms,

They fall together

She whispers that it’s only for awhile

She swears that soon she’ll be comin’ back forever

She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

You can’t hid your lyin’ eyes

And your smile is a thin disguise

I thought by now you’d realize

There ain’t now way to hide you lyin’ eyes

She gets up and pours herself a strong one

And stares out at the stars up in the sky

Another night, it’s gonna be a long one

She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry

She wonders how it ever got this crazy

She thinks about a boy she knew in school

Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?

She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool

My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things

You set it up so well, so carefully

Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things

You’re still the same old girl you used to be

You can’t hide your lyin eyes

And your smile is a thin disguise

I thought by now you’d realize

There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes

There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes

Honey, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

Take It To The Limit

 

All alone at the end of the of the evening

And the bright lights have faded to blue

I was thinking ’bout a woman who might have

Loved me and I never knew

You know I’ve always been a dreamer

(spent my life running ’round)

And it’s so hard to change

(Can’t seem to settle down)

But the dreams I’ve seen lately

Keep on turning out and burning out

And turning out the same

So put me on a highway

And show me a sign

And take it to the limit one more time

You can spend all your time making money

You can spend all your love making time

If it all fell to pieces tomorrow

Would you still be mine?

And when you’re looking for your freedom

(Nobody seems to care)

And you can’t find the door

(Can’t find it anywhere)

When there’s nothing to believe in

Still you’re coming back, you’re running back

for more

So put me on a highway

And show me a sign

And take it to the limit one more time

Take it to the limit

Take it to the limit

Take it to the limit one more time

Visions

 

Visions, that you stir in my soul

Visions, that will never grow old

Sweet baby, I had some visions of you

If I can’t have it all, just a taste will do

Go ahead and live all your fantasies

(Don’t you ever think about the other side?)

Helps you get from where you are

To where you want to be

(You and me oughta be taking a ride)

You do the best you can

And you make your mistakes

(If you don’t like it, you can say that you tried)

‘Cause all I have to give is whatever it takes

Play on, El Chingadero, play on

Play on, El Chingadero

Dance, angel, dance ’til you wear out your blues

(Only thing that’s gonna save you now)

Take another chance, you got nothing to lose

(The boy didn’t love you anyhow)

Girl, you drive me wild when you do what you do

(Something makes me want to take you down)

If I can’t have it all, just a taste will do

Just a taste of you

After The Thrill Is Gone

 

Same dances in the same old shoes

Some habits that you just can’t lose

There’s no telling what a man might lose,

After the thrill is gone

The flame rises but it soon descends

Empty pages and a frozen pen

You’re not quite lovers and you’re not quite friends

After the thrill is gone, oh,

After the thrill is gone

What can you do when your dreams come true

And it’s not quite like you planned?

What have you done to be losing the one

You held it so tight in your hand well

Time passes and you must move on,

Half the distance takes you twice as long

So you keep on singing for the sake of the song

After the thrill is gone

After the thrill is gone

You’re afraid you might fall out of fashion

And you’re feeling cold and small

Any kind of love without passion

That ain’t no kind of lovin’ at all, well

Same dances in the same old shoes

You get too careful with the steps you choose

you don’t care about winning but you don’t want to lose

After the thrill is gone

After the thrill is gone

After the thrill is gone, oh

After the thrill is gone

I Wish You Peace

 

I wish you peace when the cold winds blow

Warmed by the fire’s glow

I wish you comfort in the, the lonely time

And arms to hold you when you ache inside

I wish you hope when things are going bad

Kind words when times are sad

I wish you shelter from the, the raging wind

Cooling waters at the fever’s end

I wish you peace when times are hard

The light to guide you through the dark

And when storms are high and your, your dreams are low

I wish you the strength to let love grow on,

I wish you the strength to let love flow,

I wish you peace when times are hard

A light to guide you through the dark

And when storms are high and your, you dreams are low

I wish you the strength to let let grown on,

I wish you the strength to let love flow,

I wish you the strength to let love glow on

I wish you the strength to let love go on
