Critic's Choice

Robert Lamm

 

What do you want
What do you want
I'm givin everything I have
I'm even trying to see if there's more
Locked deep inside
I'll try
I'll try
Can't you see, this is me

What do you need
What do you need
Is someone just to hurt
So that you can appear to be smart
And use a steady job
Play God
Play God

What to you really know
You parasite
You're dynamite
An oversight
Misunderstanding what you hear
You're quick to cheer

And volunteer
Obsurdities, musicals, blasphemies
Oh Lord
Save us all

What do you want
What do you want
I'm givin every thing I have
I'm even trying to see if there's more
Locked deep inside
I'll try
I'll try
Can't you see, this is me

 
 
 

Just You 'N' Me

James Pankow

 

You are my love in my life
And you are my inspiration
Just you 'n me
Simple and free
Baby you're everything I've ever dreamed of
Yeah, yeah

Give me your own special smile
Promise you'll never leave me
Just you 'n me
Simple and free
Life is so easy
When you're beside me
Oh girl

Come hold me close
Never release me
Oh baby don't release me
Open your arms, let my love in
Let me in, let me in, let me in
Love me tonight, love me forever
And ever

You know I can't forget you
Just you 'n me to carry on
Simple and free my lovely
To flow as one as love's reward
Lovin' you girl is so damn easy
Yeah, yeah

You are my love in my life
You are my inspiration
Just you 'n me
Simple and free
Baby you're everything I've ever dreamed of

 
 
 

Darlin' Dear

Robert Lamm

 

Since the time
Half the night
Feelin' good
Feelin' right

Words were spoke
Brought us close
When we touched it was overdose

On the road
You're back there
You're my friend Darlin' Dear

Open up
Let me in
I'm your pal again

When your smile
Shines on me
I am the sea to sea

We will fly everywhere
You're my friend Darlin' Dear

Caught a glance
Picked up the phone
Did you read Rolling Stone

Knowing you'll knock me out
I am your roustabout

Pretty good atmosphere
You're my friend Darlin' Dear

Oh baby
Oh baby

 

 
 
 

Jenny

Terry Kath

 

Jenny
Jenny
You know I'm goin' away
And you know my woman's here
Please don't you stray
Watch over her
You can run amok and play

Your whole life through
And you can chase the cats around
'Cause she loves that too
Then if someone comes to cause her harm
You will protect her true
Oh Jenny

Jenny
Jenny
You got her while I'm gone
Time moves so slow
For someone who's alone
So comfort her

If she's feelin' low
You gotta be a card
And If she's fast asleep
Don't you sleep too hard
If someone comes to cause her harm
You gotta gun 'em down
Oh Jenny

Now maybe
It's gonna be alright
Won't have to fight
Won't have to fight
But then again
So sad but true
There's always someone waiting
Just to shit on you

And if she's feeling low
You gotta be a card
If she's fast asleep
Don't you sleep too hard
'Cause if someone comes to cause her harm
You gotta gun 'em down
Oh Jenny

Now maybe
It's gonna be alright
You won't have to fight
Never have to fight
But then again
You know it's sad but true
There's always someone waiting
Just to shit on you

 

 

 
 
 

What's This World Comin' To

James Pankow

 

Why can't folks get along with one another
'Cause Jesus said you got to love your brother
Lord I seem to notice all the evil in the air
No one seems to really give a damn if it is there

Oh, what's this world comin' to
Hope for love, come on through, come on through
People finally get them together
Makin' life - Ooh - a whole lot better
Yeah, yeah

Some folks got a lot, and some are hungry
Well I said some folks have to live from day to day
Rich folks spendin' time just countin' money
Poor folks really ain't got much to say

What's this world comin' to
Hope for love, come on through, come on through
I said now people finally get them together
Makin' life - Ooh - a whole lot better
Yeah, yeah

What's this world
Comin' to
What's this world
Comin' to
What's this world
Comin' to
What's this world
Comin' to
What's this world
Comin' to
What's this world
Comin' to

Oh people got to get their thing together
Be no time to lose just time to die
All of us can make this world a better place to be
All of us can see how good it feels to be free

Woah, what's this world comin' to
Hope for love, come on through, me and you
People got to get it together
Makin life - Ooh - A whole lot better

 

 
 
 

Something in This City Changes People

Robert Lamm

 

Maitre D's will seat me
Knowing what I spend
They are friend
So sad so sad

Smiling face greet me
Everyone's my friend
They Pretend
So sad so sad

They see I am happy
With my lady
They're not satisfied
All their feelings died

Something in this city
Changes people
Makes them devil-eyed

My love she waits for me
When I'm far away
Counting days
So sad so sad

They all know our story
Still they try to play
Anyway
So sad so sad

Flashing cars and morning
Funny faces
Egos magnified
Quite Unjustified

Something in this City
Changes People
Makes them devil-eyed

 

 
 
 

Hollywood

Robert Lamm

 

People running everywhere
Not one place to go
Got no time to look around to find out where they are
Where they are
Where they are

People having such a race
Don't know where it ends
Got beat the other man at getting anywhere
Anywhere
Anywhere

Hollywood
Crazy neighborhood
Never understood why I stay
Hollywood
Lovely lady who'd
Make you feel good
Every day

Feeling the night's past fire
Under the glowing eyes
Of the sweet butterflies

Watch
What you say
When you say it
Someone you know
Will betray it
Will betray it

Hollywood
Oh, crazy neighborhood
Never understood why I stay
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine

Hollywood, Hollywood
Things are weak, things are weak
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine
Heard it through the grapevine

 

 
 
 

In Terms Of Two

Peter Cetera

 

You played the part of this hard to get
And somehow you knew that I couldn't forget
And though I don't think in terms of two
I got it bad for you

And when you passed me along the way
I couldn't speak, so you didn't stay

And though I don't think in terms of two
You're breaking my heart
Shaking me up the part
Breaking my heart
Shaking me up the part again

When it appeared to me I was found
And nothing I did could bring me around
And though I don't think in terms of two
I saw it there in you

So now if you'd only understand
That without you here
I'd be half of a man

And though I don't think in terms of two
You're breaking my heart
Shakin me off the part
Breaking my heart
Shakin me off the part again

Because of you
Because of me
The times are right
I disagree
Before you leave
I want you to see
Woah, what you've done to me

 

 
 
 

Rediscovery

Robert Lamm

 

Oh what a beautiful night
The stars are shining bright
I've not been feeling right
Not been feeling right
I've not been feeling right

Soon it's gonna change
Time to rearrange
Stop this acting strange

Found us a beautiful place
Perfect and tiny space
And now we can retrace
Now we can retrace
Now we can retrace
All we have begun
New oblivion
Havin' lots of fun

Guitar

Got to get back inside
Dreams and thoughts collide
Say you found this crazy
Say you found this crazy
Say you found this crazy
Life

Please be good to me
Last chance to be free
This mountain majesty is rediscovery

 

 
 
 

Feelin' Stronger Every Day

Peter Cetera/James Pankow
 

I do believe in you
And I know you believe in me
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

And now we realize
Love's not all that it's supposed to be
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

And knowing that you would have wanted it this way
I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day

I know we really tried
Together we had love inside
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

So now the time has come
For both of us to live on the run
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

And knowing that you would have wanted it this way
I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day
Yeah, yeah, yeah

After what you've meant to me
Ooh baby now
I can make it easily
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I know that we both agree
Best thing to happen to you
The best thing that happened to me
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Feelin' stronger every day
Feelin' stronger every day
Feelin' stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin' stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin' stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin' stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin' stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feelin stronger every day
(You know I'm alright now)
Feeling stronger every day
