3 I Go out Walking

.
I go out walking, I will head out walking
I will go out walking through the middle of midnight
With a burning inside

And there’s nothing they can throw me no
Nothing they can throw at me now no
Nothing they can throw me
That I can’t throw back
Or at least know where to hide

Cigarette burning bright
First cigarette that I’ve seen tonight
I wish I may I wish I might
Not burn alone like you tonight

Chorus

I took your memories and I threw them on the path
And I walked on by
‘Cause there’s only so long you can carry the burden
Of love with a pack of lies
Chorus

I talked to my lonely heart
And an old streetlight
And I cried on the shoulder
Of the road
Till I felt all right

Chorus

I go out walking I will head out walking I will go out walking …..

4 Love Letters

.
I got your letter in the mailbox this morning,
Read it immediately,
I savor every word that you write,
In your letter to me,
I like the parts that make me blush,
Oh you devil you,
And where you write sentimental stuff,
As only you can do,

Chorus
But where you write me that you miss me,
I read that part,
Over and over and,
Where you write me that you love me,
I read that part,
Over and over and over and over again.

I read your letters over cappucino,
Just as if you were here
And it’s embarrasing but I’ll imagine
You’re whispering in my ear,
I like the parts that you write in French,
And I’m not quite sure what you say,
And the parts where you describe me,
In all sorts of flattering ways,

Chorus

All day long I’m out in traffic,
I’ve got meetings I’ve got things I’ve got to do,
But if I get even a moment to myself,
I slip a look at that letter from you,

Where you write me that you miss me
I read that part over and over and
Where you write me that you love me
I read that part over and over and over and over and
Over and over again

7 Gentle of Heart

.
Woe betide those whose luck is lousy
They may never love someone who loves them back
And woe betide those who aren’t a little greedy
‘Cause the world loves the ones on the money track

Woe betide those who don’t look the same
As the ones who make the rules in the power game
Some will work their lives just to get above trouble
Some are born on second base and think they’ve hit a double
Chorus
This is not a world for the gentle of heart
I see so many buck the trend
And they fall apart
And they go too soon, the gentle of heart

Woe betide those who are dealt some bitter blow
In a world with so little room for reeling
You better keep on walkin’ you better keep movin’ on up
Don’t be caught down for the count don’t be caught kneeling

You better reach out you better steady yourself
You better find a port in another’s heart
Cause woe betide those who are goin’ it alone
They must conquer it all just to start

Chorus

But who will pick up the world
When the rest have taken it
On their one way ride
Who are the letters in the mail
The voices on the corner
Who holds up against that blackening tide
The gentle of heart

And this is not a world for the gentle of heart
I see so many buck the trend
And they fall apart

And they shut them up
and they put them down
and they lock them up
And they shoot them down

And they go too soon
The gentle of heart

Chorus
