DREAMER’S HOLIDAY I’m the dreamer Lives down on the bay
 What the country was
 No I could not say 
But there’s that house
 I’ve known a thousand times A hundred doors And they’re all mine The possibilities amaze me On a dreamer’s holiday Well you’re the slow one 
But you don’t waste your time You can move the mountains That we don’t want to climb The architects of joy you know They dream a lot
 About what’s real
 And about what’s not
 They’re gonna set us on our way On a dreamer’s holiday Well you’re the dreamer But they don’t understand Without you we’d be back At the dawn of man And everyone should know That it ain’t wrong 
To dream of a world Where you belong Come on and lead us on our way To a dreamer’s holiday
 On a dreamer’s holiday 
On a dreamer’s holiday

Rainsville 03:53
RAINSVILLE Well I’m walking in Rainsville Well I’m walking real slow And the sound of the piper's pipe Is making everything glow And it’s raining down Springtime From the heavens above Sayin pick up the pace boy I sent you someone to love And there’s so much violence At my neighbors door I can sleep in silence But I can’t ignore the roar of war Come and follow my footsteps From the whispering pines All you vagabond solider boys Cut your poor selves in line And it’s raining down sorrow From your old bloody glove If there’s light at the end of the road You look for someone to love And there’s so much violence At you neighbors door You can sleep in silence But you can’t ignore the roar of war Well I’m walking in Rainsville Well I’m walking real slow And the sound of the piper’s pipe Is making everything glow And it’s raining down Springtime From the heavens above Saying pick up the pace boy I sent you someone to love Saying pick up the pace boys I sent you someone to love

Kingdom Hill 05:18
KINGDOM HILL The busy bird is a raven It flies the skyline at night And sapphire blue is the color As all the work takes its flight She comes out stepping so lightly Her yellow dress all aglow The seconds tick by so tightly There’s no one she doesn’t know But all day long there’s a numbness A trance light movement by all There’s nowhere baby to rest There’s nowhere that you can fall Why don’t you take me up to Kingdom Hill Fill up my senses till they start to spill There’s just so much that I can do without Then I can tell you what I care about The men they work on the building The women work in the store Some eyes of wisdom might cry now Somehow they thought they’d see more And I’m laying down in the alley I have no answer that’s right We might have reached our finale A change of heart’s not insight Why don’t you take me up to Kingdom Hill Fill up my senses till that start to spill There’s just so much that I can do without Then I can tell you what I care about I’m going out searchin’ tomorrow Across the symphonies of time And with my trusty bow and arrow I’ll find a reason or a rhyme Why don’t you take me up to Kingdom Hill Fill up my senses till that start to spill There’s just so much that we can do without Then I can tell you what I care about

Marianne 04:33
MARIANNE Hear me knock on your window tap on your window pane Hear me knock on your window tap on your window pane Don’t leave me standin’ out here in the pouring rain Oh my back is wet and my feet are weary too Oh my back is wet and my feet are weary too Let me come in darling you know my love is true Marianne oh now Marianne Marianne oh now Marianne You know what I want’s is just to be your man Hear the storm is raging outside your door Yeah the storm is raging outside your door You know what I want’s is just to love you some more Hear the hound dogs howling outside your gate Hear the hound dogs howling out behind your gate Should I carry on or should I wait Ah shall I wait Ah now shall I wait Ah now shall I wait Ah now baby shall I wait Let come up now let me through your garden gate Why don’t you call me call me call me on up inside Call me call me call me on up inside You’ve got all the love one poor boy could try Hear me knock on your window tap on your window pane Hear me knock on your window tap on your window pane Don’t leave me standin’ out here in the pouring rain Don’t leave me standin’ out here in the pouring rain Don’t leave me standin’ out here in the pouring rain

Jungletown 08:39
JUNGLETOWN Let’s just say that I’m a little bit lonely And I’m watching the clock on the building wall I’m gonna see the sweetest thing since honey And I hang up from my pay phone call The streets are like crowded rivers And I feel like I’m gonna float away from here I turn to head in her direction With her voice still ringing in my ear She’s the queen of big excitement Mysterious child She’s the only woman in this Jungletown With a golden smile Roll it over Miss Lonely It’s a serious thing My hands will shake and my feet will tremble When I hear her sing. Oh we’re laying on the ground Oh we’re reaching for the sky Here in lovely Jungletown You and I you and I we’re gonna get by. And her room is lit with yellow candles And smells gardenia white She takes my hat and kisses me And asks if I’m alright Well sure I am there’s nothing that can get to me You know all the world’s a zoo Did you see the headlines and the pictures And the things that people do I breathe a long sigh of relief And I look up on the wall Her burning altars brighten me And my anger quickly falls She’s the queen of far desire Show me everything She’s the only woman in this Jungletown Buy I swear I see her wings Roll it over Miss Lonely Roll it over again I never had an enemy I never had a friend But oh we’re laying on the ground Oh we’re reaching for the sky Here in lovely Jungletown You and I you and I we’re gonna get by And the nights are longer than a tiger’s tail And everyone wants to eat From Saint Vincents all the way to Bagdad And to the drunken beasts in the street Sirens and bullets and aircraft Still fill the sky Show me the shooting distance And why everyone’s looking for a chance to die Precious moment they’re burning I see ashes where there once was more She slips her dress from her shoulders It disappears to the floor She’s the queen of big excitement Show me everything She’s the only woman in this Jungletown But I swear I see her wings Roll it over Miss Lonely Roll it over again I never had an enemy I never had a friend But oh we’re laying on the ground Oh we’re reaching for the sky Here in lovely Jungletown You and I you and I we’re gonna get by Laying down and lookin up Sparrows flying by Now its dark and quiet And I’ve stopped my asking why We sailed on midnight waters Where everyone had sinned I’m touching her she’s touching me Her bodies like the wind Blow me into freedom Blow me through the trees God is on the riverbank Let me see just what he sees She’s the queen of big excitement Show me everything She’s the only woman in this Jungletown But I swear I see her wings Roll it over Miss Lonely Roll it over again I never had an enemy I never had a friend But oh we’re laying on the ground Oh we’re reaching for the sky Here in lovely Jungletown You and I you and I we’re gonna get by

SOUL PARADE I’m walkin’ down that dusty road Wondering what I might unfold All upon a summers day Sugar for sugar and salt for salt 
If it comes out right it ain’t your fault Movin’ through a soul parade Shake my hand tip my hat Everybody’s gonna be like that Ain’t nobody cast away Brightly colored all around Arms a waving up and down Movin’ though this soul parade 
I’m livin’ with somethin’ 
I don’t understand 
I’m the prince of my own life Ain’t no way around it
 Take the good with the bad Find the joy with the strife So I drank some water 
From the old man’s stream 
He said everybody’s gonna let you dream Never will you be afraid Brother boy, sister too Everybody looks a lot like you Movin through this soul parade I’m livin’ with somthin’
I don’t understand 
I’m the prince of my own life Ain’t no way around it 
Take the good with the bad Find the joy with the strife There’s a cold wind blowin all round you Up on cemetery hill
 And it’s all right yeah it’s all right 
If I don’t know how you feel I just wash my face Comb my hair Step out in the summer’s air Lookin’ what might come my way Shake my hand tip your hat Everybody’s gonna be like that Movin’ through this soul parade Yeah movin’ through this soul parade Yeah movin’ through this soul parade

BEFORE Before the rain drops Before the showers Before the flowers ever grow Out where the lane stops Before the hour Its us and just the radio In the twinkling of a moment When we dance around your floor And Ray Charles sings I’m Busted Well you ain’t gotta you ain’t gotta you ain’t gotta You ain’t gotta worry no more Before the rain drops Before the showers Before the flowers ever grow Out where the lane stops Before the hour Its us and just the radio Oh that’s the way that love is It’s easier said that done And Sally go round the roses But just you know that one day our day will come Before the rain drops Before the showers Before the flowers ever grow Out where the lane stops Before the hour Its us and just the radio There comes a way That’s what they say Hear what they play Our day will come our day will come Out where the lane stops Before the hour It’s us and just the radio just the radio
