NEVER TELL YOU WHY

D
I walk alone and wonder

If I’ll ever be straight again.

So much in so little time tells me
               Em
To watch for a fall ahead,
G
But they never tell you why,
Em            Asus4  A  D
Never tell you why.

All of these faces and places,
They just keep on passing by
They all start to look more familiar
As the time goes by,
But they never tell you why,
Never tell you why.

A#          C
Oh, we see our mistake
Am                 A#
But only when it’s much too late
Gm  C                    D
Oh, tell me why, tell me why.


So on to another day, on to another date,
Got to keep moving, just got to keep moving,
They won’t wait,
But they never tell you why,
Never tell you why.

PART TIME LOVE AFFAIR

B               D
Into the self, lightning strikes without warning.
B
You’re moving so fast, you’re playing with fire,
D/F#                      G   A
Can’t take the heat anymore.
B                   D
Blind in your path, I’m so lost in the darkness.
B             D/F#                             G  A
Can’t see why there’s no tears without the laughter.

D
No more need to dare or fall into the tiger’s lair,
E7
Enough of what’s inside your head

But I don’t want to share your bed.
G                                   (Asus4 A) rpt twice
Part time love affairs never get you anywhere.

Once in your life, take the tail of the tiger.
But just like a fool, you live by no rules,
Can’t cheat yourself forever.
You walk in, you walk out. You’re into deep water.
I don’t know just what it means anymore.

EASTERN LOVERS

A                    F#m
Please don’t say goodnight
A                  F#m
Lose your fears tonight
         D/F#            E
I wonder of my misspent youth
        D/F#                       E
Wasted nights and days not knowing you
                    A
Silver nights with you.

A                   F#m
Will you wait till light
A                     F#m
We’ll laugh away the night
          D/F#           E
Forgotten is the givers love
         D/F#               E
Will you forget my gift of love
                    D  Bm  D  Bm
Silver nights with you.

D                    Bm
Eastern lovers we’ll be
D                      Bm
Rising sun for you and me
             G                         A
And when we speak we’ll speak with our eyes
         G               A
Samurai eyes they never lie
                     D
Eastern nights with you.

D                        Bm
Rice paper walls are so thin
D                     Bm
Rice paper walls let me in
         G                      A
And I’ll be what you want me to be
           G                        Asus4 A
A samurai boy, rice paper walls set me free
                     D  Bm  D  Bm
Eastern lovers we’ll be.

NORMAL PEOPLE

Em
Take note from contemporary man
G
And understand his weakness,
Em
He leads a life of infertility
G
But cannot see his illness.
Em
We know that he should give his time
G
To love and life and laughter
Em
You and I have credibility ha!
G
We know who’ll do the laughing after.

A            E
Why can’t we be like
G           D
The normal people
A             E
And give our lives to
G             D
The taxation man.

Em
I wonder what he really thinks
G
In the darkness of ambition.
Em
Tomorrow comes and with it brings
G
Another day of action.
Em
One day much too far away,
G
The normal ones may listen.
Em
Conform is, and does all this
G
But you and I are different.

A            E
Why can’t we be like
G           D
The normal people
A             E
And give our lives to
G             D    Am……
The taxation man.

D            A
Why can’t we be like
C           G
The normal people
D             A
And give our lives to
C             G
The taxation man.

KABUKI

D
You may think

That it’s wrong to love me

While you love
             Em
With another one;
D
You always say

That it’s so confusing

But I can see
                          Bm   F#m
That there’s no confusing you.

Em
Kabuki knows what I’ve always felt
                                    Bm   F#m
That love is more than any man can bear
Em
If only you’d listen to kabuki
                                                 Bm   A
You’d see that love is in your heart not in your head.

D
Oh how could we

Be so different when

Our two hearts
                          Em
Beat as if they both were one?
D
Your thoughts may be from other places but

I know you
                          Bm   F#m
Think of me as I think of you.

RAINY DAY

Dm
You come again to see me
Am
I hear you at the door
         A#
But the raining still continues
               Gm             C
And now there’s water on the floor.
Dm
Another day deceives me
Am
As it passes while I sleep
A#
Have I got the foresight
Gm               C
Not to look too deep?

Dm
The rain can fall forever
            Am
While your world is here with me
            F
But you’re lost in soul and no emotion
C
Lost in heart no devotion.

Dm
Are you a passing stranger
Am
That’s come in from the rain
          A#
And when it’s sunny will you leave me
Gm                      C
Because the weather’s changed
Dm
But for now the storm continues
Am
And the rain comes down outside
             A#
So will you stay a little longer
          Gm               C
Will you stay for just a while?

CALLING YOUR NAME


C  D  C  G

A#  F            G
You look at the real world,
A#            F             G
It’s turning around on its own,
A#       F            G
Living, learning and dying
A#         F           G
Respecting no foolish throne.

C   D      C    G
Calling – calling your name
C   D      C    G
Calling – calling your name

A#     F                  G
Well I thought you would love me
A#  F                  G
No matter what anyone said.
A#       F               G
Stupidly, men have died laughing
A#      F           G
Sanity hangs by a thread.

A#          F                   G
Forget that you said you don’t want me.
A#          F                 G
Forget that you don’t have a heart
                A#  F             G
(and I thought) no man should survive this
A#   F                 G
Then I heard my voice start.

WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE ME (BLIND LOVE)

Dm
You’re fighting a losing battle
C
Can’t you see
A#        C                     Gsus4
Childish games, they’re not for you
       G
Not for me.
Dm
Words that can maim
C
Blind are we
A#            C
What use are eyes, if they
Gsus4     G
Can only see?

Csus4             C
Cause we need to feel
Bsus4        B
And know we belong
A#sus4              A#
In a world that is blind
Asus4                A
The one-eyed man is strong
                 A#
Where does that leave me
                 C              Dm
Where does that leave me blind love.

Dm
Your life’s a contradiction
C
Blind am I!
A#               C
What use are my eyes,
Gsus4          G
If I can only lie?
Dm
Your words do maim,
C
Blind are you
A#            C
What use are lies, if you
Gsus4     G
Can only lose?

Csus4            C
Cause I need to feel
Bsus4       B
And know I belong
A#sus4  A
So it goes
Asus4                 A
The one-eyed man was wrong
               A#
Where does that leave me
             C                  Dm
Where does that leave me blind love.

GIRL LIKE YOU

D G
In a town a once pretty girl
D G                          D
She’s much like me and she’s much like you
Em
But for one thing
D G
Nobody see’s nobody cares
D G
The reason why she stares and stares
Em                Asus4       A
At the one thing..that isn’t there

C         A
Now he’s gone
C                A
Oh your on your own

D
I cant seem to believe
D
I cant seem to believe in
            E7   C
A girl like you
D
You don’t seem to be Happy
D
You don’t seem to be happy
            E7   C
A girl like you

D G
Years ago long down the line
D G                  D
She came to town to settle down
        Em
And to find someone
D G
That someone came and stole her heart
D G                   D                   Em
But late that winter lost his own to the frozen winds
Asus4          A
They took his soul..
C         A
Now he’s gone
C                Asus4   A
Oh..she’s on her own

FOOL’S WAY

Dm              C
What use these thoughts of mine
Am            A#
Without your light to guide
Gm            C             Dm
And bring my darkness to an end
Dm            C
Here locked inside my head
Am            A#
Lay so much so I feared
Gm            C                Dm
I hoped that soon I’d lose my mind

A#          C
I see the other path
A#          C
That’s open to the fools
Gm          C             Dm
But what a fatal price to pay
A#            C
What else is left to do
A#           C
Without the word from you
Gm         C               Dm
How can I choose the fatal way

Dm            C
I’ll live in hope until
Am              A#
The whole damn world stands still
Gm          C             Dm
Until this coldness cures all
Dm           C
But answers never come
Am            A#
And when they do to some
Gm          C                Dm
They never answer questions asked
