Brand New Love Affair - Part I + II

James Pankow

 

Wish I knew what was going wrong
Seems so very long since we laughed together
It's no good to be all alone
When you hurt a friend
And you both feel empty
What I'd give to erase the pain
Will we ever make friends
Is it over or shall we try again
For a brand new love affair

Seems to me
We are both afraid
That our love may fade and we just won't make it
Maybe soon we'll be friends again
Find ourselves and then
Really make it happen
What I'd give to erase the pain
Will we every make friends
Is it over or shall we try again
For a brand new love affair

Start all over again
And do it up the right way
Come together my friend
And celebrate the new day

I can hardly believe
How much I really love you baby
All our tomorrows will be
A love affair with you my lady

 
 
 

Never Been In Love Before

Robert Lamm

 

I've never been in love before
Not like this you taught me more
How among myself will I
Lift up on myself and cry
'Cause I thought I could not give
My thought would not let me live
How my feeling disappeared

You are lovely reason I
Am alive you satisfy
All my senses and you give
Me the confidence to grow
In a thousand different ways
Happy just to spend the days
Of my lifetime by your side

I want to be
Everything that I can
I want so much
To be more of a man

I want to grow
I want to know you better
Each day I'll try
To love you
'Cause I've never been in love before

You have a friend for life in me
If we ever disagree
If you have to go away
I will set you free with time
'Cause your hapiness is mine
May our light forever shine
When you always feel free

I want to be
Everything that I can
I want so much
To be more of a man

I want to live
I want to give my lifetime
Each day I'll try
To love you
'Cause I've never been in love before

 
 
 

Hideaway

Peter Cetera

 

You know I gotta go
Got to find a place
Get away
From the human race
Find a place where the air is clear
On a sunny day, sunny day
I got to find
A Hideaway, hideaway

Hideaway
Hideaway
Hideaway
Hideaway

You know I gotta leave
Got to find a place, any place
Get away
From the city pace, city pace
I gotta go out where the air is fresh and clear
On a sunny day, sunny day
And I got to find
A hideway, yeah yeah

 
 
 

Till We Meet Again

Terry Kath

 

I want to share the love that fills my being
If your willing
Come along
Take of me this evening and this love
If you're lonely
Come let's be
There's no time for shyness
How fast night turns to day
Let's just light love's fire
And lay embraced till it burns away
Kiss goodbye and journey on to new loves
Keep your own love
Till we meet again

 
 
 

Harry Truman

Robert Lamm

 

America needs you
Harry Truman
Harry could you please come home
Things are looking bad
I know you would be mad
To see what kind of men
Prevail upon the land you love

America's wondering
How we got here
Harry all we get is lies
We're gettin' safer cars
Rocket ships to mars
From men who'd sell us out
To get themselves a piece of power

We'd love to hear you speak your mind
In plain and simple ways
Call a spade a spade
Like you did back in the day
You would play piano
Each morning walk a mile
Speak of what was going down
Eith honesty and style

America's calling
Harry Truman
Harry you know what to do
The world is turnin' round and losin' lots of ground
Oh Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
Oh woah woah woah

America's calling
Harry Truman
Harry you know what to do
The world is turnin' round
And losin' lots of ground
So Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
Oh
Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love
Harry
Harry is there something we can do to save the land we love

 
 
 

Oh Thank You Great Spirit

Terry Kath

 

Pulling myself out of a dead sleep
With the impression of the dream still fresh in my mind
Before I'm even awake, the words, the music were complete

I woke up that mornin'
Feelin' so rested and young
My mind was clear of all the problems
That been hasslin' my head
I couldn't quite understand why
I felt so fine
I felt so free
So beyond it all
As I turned towards the bed
I understood as all came clear
As I turned towards the bed
I understood as all came clear

I saw myself lyin' there
Didn't have a care
Piece of mind was finally mine
Now free to fly
Into the blue sky
Oh great spirit
Fly away
Oh great spirit
Just fly
Fly
Oh fly away

 
 
 

Long Time No See

Robert Lamm

 

What you been doin, ain't you got no one
Where you been keepin' yourself my friend

Have you been hidin' underground writin'
Foolin' yourself in your special way

Where's your old lady
She was a nice girl
Maybe it's best that she went away

You will be losin' nothing can change you
Hapiness spits in your face always

Where are you going, what will you see there
You never learn nothin' by runnin' away

What you been doin, ain't you got no one
Where you been keepin' yourself my friend

Lonliness growin' Emptiness showin'
Finding your peace two or three times a day
three times a day

 
 
 

Ain't It Blue?

Robert Lamm

 

Done the things I said I would
Some of them were pretty good
Suddenly they changed the game
I only know it's not the same no more

I don't know what to do the rules I knew

Ain't it sad
Ain't it sad
Ain't it true
Ain't it true
Ain't it blue
Ain't it blue

The life i live is pretty nice
Of course I had to pay a price
Lots of folks depend on me
Erase all kinds of slavery

I don't know what to do the rules I knew

Ain't it sad
Ain't it sad
Ain't it true
Ain't it true
Ain't it blue
Ain't it blue
Ain't it blue

Sometimes I want to walk away
I felt like that just yesterday
But when this song is in my head
I try my best 'till I'm dead and gone

I don't know what to do the rules I knew

Ain't it sad
Ain't it sad
Ain't it true
Ain't it true
Ain't it blue
Ain't it blue
Ain't it blue

 
 
 

Old Days

James Pankow

 

Old days
Good times I remember
Fun days
Filled with ship of pleasure
Drive-in movies
Comic books and blue jeans
Howdy Doody
Baseball cards and birthdays
Please take me back
To the world gone away
Memories
Seem like yesterday

Old days
Good times I remember
Gold days
Days I'll always treasure
Funny faces
Full of love and laughter
Funny places
Summer nights and streetcars
Take me back
To the world gone away
Our good memories
Seem like yesterday

Old days...
