    Zero

    So often I have not been heard
    So many times misunderstood
    but someone told me
    Zero is just another even number

    I often felt I’d had enough
    So many times I’d been fed up
    and I wonder
    if zero is just another even number

    Digging through my dreams
    where nothing’s as it seems
    trying to find the way
    the easy way out
    Soon I’m going to go away
    Soon I’m going to be okay
    I know I’m going to find the way
    the only way out

    In spite of all that I have done
    I’m sure I was to be the one
    The odd thing is that
    Zero is just another even number
    Just another even number
    Another even number
    Even number
    Number.

  • Everybody’s Rocking Tonight

    Now if you feeling kinda lonely
    And if you feeling kinda bad
    There’s a band down in the ballroom
    and they’ll never make you sad.

    They’ve got heavy pumpin’ rhythm
    Running straight down to your soul
    Have you heard the latest news
    the people call it rock’n’roll.

    You just get down on the floor
    But you better do it right,
    ’cause everybody’s rocking tonight.

    And if you’re only got a dime
    There’s a lot that you can do
    You can put it in the juke-box
    and the beat’ll pull you through.

    You can hear it all around you
    it’s ringing like a bell
    You just need a heavy dose
    to make you really sound and well.

    You just get down on the floor
    But you better do it right,
    ’cause everybody’s rocking tonight.

    I know ’cause I was lonely too
    But pretty soon I found a cure
    I heard the tune I saw the light
    I just got there on the floor
    did my best to do it right and
    everybody’s rocking tonight.

  • India

    Let’s take a trip to India
    Where lotus flowers grow
    Let’s take a trip to India
    Where muddy rivers flow.

    I want to show you India
    With warm and heavy rains
    I want to show you India
    And sunny, dusty days.

    I’ll let you light my insence stick
    And brush my hair aside
    I promise you a jungle tour
    And a lazy elephant ride.

    Let’s take a trip to India
    There’s so much there to see
    Let’s teke a trip to India
    My sitar, you and me,
    My guitar, you and me,
    My mother, you and me,
    My Martha, you and me.

  • If You’ve Got Troubles

    If you’ve got troubles well you just call on me
    If you’ve got troubles there’s a place where we can be
    If you’re feeling sad and blue
    You can stay with me tonight
    If you’ve got troubles, oh yeah
    I’ll make it right

    If you’ve got troubles you won’t need to pretend
    If you’ve got troubles I’ll be there to lend a hand
    When you’ve cried out all your tears
    I would help to see the light
    If you’ve got troubles, oh yeah

    Here I am standing right by your side
    Here I am, baby don’t run and hide
    I can’t stand to see you sad
    I won’t let you go tonight
    If you’ve got troubles, oh yeah
    I’ll make it right.

  • Moonglow

    Moonglow shining on a river
    Moonglow turnin’ everything to silver
    I know her touch will make me shiver
    when I take her by the hand, oh, oh

    Sunshine everytime I see her
    Sunshine the moment when I kiss her
    Some time she’ll know I’ll never leave her
    If I take her by the hand, oh oh

    I know, moonglow,
    won’t let me be
    moonglow, please show,
    your love to me

  • I Lost My Little Girl

    Someone had seen my baby talking
    (sha-la-la, talking to him)
    Someone had seen my baby walking
    (sha-la-la, walking with him)
    Someone had told me she was doing alright
    (oh yeah, doing alright)
    Someone had told me he was holding her tight
    (oh yeah, holding her tight)

    But I still don’t believe
    Every word they say is a lie
    But I still can’t conceive
    The reason why I cry

    I lost my little girl
    The only one in the whole wide world
    I lost her, and I don’t know what I’ll do
    I lost my little girl
    And I’m feeling like the broken man should
    I lost her, and I know it’s true.

  • Winston’s Walk

    Everybody loves somebody else
    Everywhere I look, it happens just the same
    Everyone is looking for somebody else,
    they shuffle the faces, they forget the names.

    You’re holding my hand while you’re thinking of him
    so it’s happening baby now, to you and me
    You’re dancing with me, but your mind’s with him
    it’s happening to us, It’s just plain to see.

    So, hush now honey, don’t you see a thing
    don’t try to explain, don’t try to talk
    just sway with me to this gentle swing
    It’s the last time we’re doing the
    last time we’re doing the
    Winston’s Walk.

    Used to be a step forward and one step back
    And another one to take us off the track
    So hush now baby don’t try to talk
    It’s the last time we’re doing the
    Winston’s Walk.

  • The Years Roll Along

    I feel there’s something more that I should say
    I thought that you would never go away
    Today I know how much I was wrong

    I never will forget the sight of you
    I always will recall the things you do
    As time goes by and years roll along

    Now we finally see that we were worlds apart
    and there was nothing smart that we could do.
    There’s no use in trying
    there’s no second chance
    for our poor romance, we know it’s true

    Someday when you see me walking by
    Give me your sweet smile, try not to cry
    ’cause deep inside I’m not very strong
    As time goes by and years roll along

  • This Is Not Here

    One step at a time our world is falling apart
    without any sign of a fresh new start
    And life after life
    we’re pushing away
    from trouble and strife
    to find a brand new day

    This is not here, this is not somewhere else
    No, this is not here, it’s all over the place
    This is not here, it doesn’t make any sense
    This is not here,
    This is not here.
    And once we are gone, no reason to mourn
    ’cause time after time we are being reborn.
    This is not here...

  • Hitch-Hike

    We are the same
    Tell me your name
    Come ride with me
    to fortune and fame
    I’ll make you strong
    I’ll make you belong
    If you dare to hitch-hike with me

    You’ll bring me up
    When I am down
    You’ll light a smile
    under my frown
    I’ll be there to hold
    In nights long and cold
    If you dare to hitch-hike with me

    Hitch-hike
    Under big starry sky
    Hitch-hike forever
    Just you and I
    on hitch-hike.

  • In The Old Hillbilly Way

    Come on, baby what you say
    Come on, will you ride with me today, let’s go
    To hear the band play
    in the old hillbilly way.

    Come on, baby come and get it
    Come on, you know you won’t regret it, yeah, oh yeah
    We’ll be rolling in the hay (rolling in the hay-hay-hay)
    in the old hillbilly way.

    Oh honey you look so fine
    You’re just too good to be true
    Oh honey you must be mine
    My mind is set on you, oo.

    So long, you know I could not stay
    Good bye, I’m sure you’ll be okay,
    who knows, who knows
    We’ll be rolling in the hay (rolling in the hay-hay-hay)
    In the old hillbilly way.

  • Too Bad About Sorrows

    You know I tried to show you that
    my love for you was true
    But you had lied when you said
    I was the only one for you.

    So I will go, you broke my heart
    and now what’s done is done
    Someday you’ll know, when we’re apart
    I really was the one.

    And I won’t feel too bad about sorrows
    There will be no sad tomorrows, I won’t
    feel too bad about sorrows, oh no, oh no
    There’s always something to hold on
    And I’m not feeling sad and blue
    There’s always someone’s helping hand
    but no you, no you, no you.
    Too bad about sorrows, oh no, oh no
    Too bad about sorrows, oh no, oh no

  • Pink Litmus Paper Shirt

    Down by the banks they are
    Standin’ and starin’
    Someone has buried his pink limousine
    Rainbow dressed lady with
    Titanic thumb
    Pickin’ strangest fruits they’d ever seen.

    The shirt on my back has just
    Started to crack
    Changin’like litmus, frail like her breath
    Small paper saint, his wings covered
    With paint
    Shiny with big pearls of sweat.

    Pink litmus paper shirt

    Little girls juggle money-bags full of
    Stained glass
    Their little feet barely touching the street
    Print color’s bleeding all over
    The grass
    Is announcing another retreat.

  • Always And Only

    Someday when you see me, standing there wasted & lonely
    Will you remember, will you recall
    The times when it was you for me
    Always and only
    Will you remember, will you recall

    You close your eyes,
    pretend that you were sleeping
    but I know you’re awake
    But I know you’re awake
    I sense the heavy secret that you’re keeping
    Everything seems so fake

    I see the end,
    and I’m so close to weeping
    How much can I take
    In the hour-glass our time silently seeping,
    it will soon have to break.

  • Anyway

    Every day
    We put aside a word or two
    Every day
    We write another line for you

    It worked out better than we’d planned
    It feels (sounds) so good now near the end
    Who’s to say
    We only knew how to pretend
    Anyway…

    Anyway…
    It worked out better than we’d planned!

  • Belgrade 2020

    You’ve been gone and stayed too long
    Leaving me to write this song for you
    Chances are more than fifty-fifty
    Once again in Belgrade city
    For us two.

    Well, I used to see your face
    In every thing and every place I know
    Now what else is left to do
    Than to sing this song to you
    Nice and slow.

    See you, see you
    See you in Belgrade 2020

    Everywhere around
    People come to join the song.
    And noone seems to mind
    if the chords are slightly wrong.
    The majestic sound Like a drum
    Helping us along.

    You’ve been gone and stayed too long
    Now all I have is just this song for you
    Chances are even more than fifty-fifty
    To show you this city through and through
    See you, see you
    See you in Belgrade 2020

    Everywhere around…

    You’ve been gone and stayed too long
    Now all I have is just this song for you
    Chances are much more than fifty-fifty
    Once again in Belgrade city
    For us two.

    See you, see you
    See you in Belgrade 2020…

  • Knight of Hearts

    Many have tried
    Many have failed
    And it goes on like this
    To this very day.

    But no one could do it
    Win over our hearts
    The way that he did
    – the Knight of Arts.

    (instr.)

    Master of figures
    Shadow and line
    King of atmosphere
    With vision divine.

    Telling us stories
    Blowing our minds
    Drawing his magic
    So deep and sublime.

    Yes, no one could do it
    The Master of Arts
    The way that he did
    – the Knight of Hearts.

    Knight of Arts, Knight of Arts, Knight of Hearts...
