We’ve been lyin’ We’ve been cheatin’ We’ve been throwin’ it all away No more winning Out of innings,… we’ve got No more games to play We’ve both lived inside this big lie And our final two words were goodbye Until Tonight 2x Been mistreated, feel defeated Broken shields by our sides Feeling queasy Stomach’s heaving From the passion left inside So much more than who’s wrong or who’s right Such a darkness has blocked our love’s light Until Tonight 4x So we’ve hated and been jaded Never trust a thing we say Unaffected Disconnected Never wanted it this way I thought that our love had run dry Until Tonight Until Tonight 3x (Coda Vamp) We’ve been lyin’ We’ve been cheatin’ baby We’ve thrown it all away No more games to play (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies, LLC

And I don’t feel like singing much today Unless you’re playin’ the blues Cause my baby’s gone and my music don’t get played Life’s not playin’ by my rules, no Each day’s the same, the sun rises and it sets I keep wondering what for Lookin’ for work – it’s just another day (TURN) Lord I miss the magic – oh I miss the magic Of the way her smile always eased my heart And her kisses touched my soul But now she’s gone – our roads are far apart We couldn’t have both a rock and roll (TURN) And I’d give anything – oh I’d give everything CHORUS: For that Magic She soothes me with her gentle voice The Magic Of her sweet little smile It’s Magic She can move a mountain with the way she walks That Magic She’s got that magic style I wrote a letter sayin’ Mr. President Gots to give me some good news Ain’t got no way to pay my rent Now somebody stole my shoes Each day’s the same, the sun rises and it sets I keep wondering what for (what for) Cause there ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone (TURN) Oh I miss the magic – Lord I miss the magic (mmmmm yeah) Saxophone solo I didn’t feel like singing much today ‘til I started playin’ some blues Then it hit me – it’s a brand new day Time to play by my own rules (TURN) But I’d still do anything – Lord I’d give everything CHORUS 2X: For that Magic She soothes me with her gentle voice The Magic Of her crazy little smile It’s Magic She can move a mountain with the way she walks That Magic She’s got that magic style (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies LLC

It’s 3:45 and I’m still alive Don’t know how much longer I can hold on tonight But when she wraps her arms around me and She holds me oh so tight The only sounds I hear are our hearts Beating softly in the night And she says that It’s Alright Newark to Fresno and each town in between Sounds cliché but if you live it you know what I mean You’re the stranger in town again yeah Lonely but never alone When you wake up in the morning light You know the night before is gone And you’re wondering where is home? Heaven’s in Denver it made the whole damn thing worthwhile We played all through the night and everybody smiled But when the roadies took the stage All the people had a place to go While we all loaded up our trucks To head for San Diego or Tucson Hell I don’t know Long as the beer is cold It’s 3:45 and and I’m still alive Don’t know how much longer I can hold on tonight There are mornings that I wish I did not know my name I look in the mirror and ask myself Why I play this game Then she says that It’s Alright That she loved the show last night And she holds me tight (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies, LLC

Like a fish swimming in a bowl Like a bird trapped in a cage Like a car racing ‘round a track Like a song with just one chord (chorus harmony) Going Nowhere Lovin’ you to me there’s no other Lovin’ you while you love another Without you I’m going nowhere Yeah going nowhere (chorus harmony) Going Nowhere (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies, LLC

He’s sittin’ alone Radio on Dreamin’ ‘bout days gone by When he could’ve hit the scene A new James Dean Now he wonders why Come 9AM Punch that clock again Then fight the traffic at 5 Radio says What he already knows Old Dreams don’t wanna die (chorus) Old Dreams If only he could find those Old Dreams Turn back the hands of time Old Dreams Keepin’ him alive Old Dreams 6-string in the closet Hasn’t touched a pen Fears the words won’t rhyme There’s an 8 x 10 Looks at now and then Wipes a teardrop from his eye At the local bar Sits tying one on Watch the latest thing give it a try Finds it hard to face Caught up in the race Old Dreams don’t wanna die (chorus) Old Dreams If only he could find those Old Dreams Turn back the hands of time Old Dreams Keepin’ him alive Old Dreams (bridge) Every morning he wakes up to the same Pressed shirts Silk ties Commuter train (chorus) Old Dreams If only he could find those Old Dreams Turn back the hands of time Old Dreams Keepin’ him alive Old Dreams All songs (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies, LLC

Been thinkin’ ‘bout you girl all the time each day Thinkin’ ‘bout our time together and the music that we play I don’t know if it’s wrong or right but there’s something I just gotta say… I’ve known you all my life and I’ve known you for just a day Then again I don’t know you at all cuz your heart is so far away and I don’t wanna scare you any further with these Crazy Things I Say (bridge) Things like…. Girl I love you and I really don’t care why It’s this overpowering feeling and it’s makin’ me so high I’d give up everything I’d got - oh yeah just to make you mine I’d love to share some dreams with you If you only… (chorus) If you only had the time… How I wish that you were mine I’d love you ‘til the very end of time I’ve known you all my life and I’ve known you for just a day Then again I don’t know you at all cuz your heart is so far away and I don’t wanna scare you any further with these Crazy Things I Say (bridge) Things like…. Girl I love you and I really don’t care why It’s this overpowering feeling and it’s makin’ me so high I’d give up everything I’d got - oh yeah just to make you mine I’d love to make your dreams come true If you only… (chorus) If you only had the time… How I wish that you were mine I’d love you ‘til the very end of time (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies, LLC

It happened just the other day A crazy man went sane (a crazy man went sane) The headlines read his mind's gone dead But he didn't feel the pain It happened just the other day A blind man saw the truth He saw the light in the dark of the night While he read tomorrow's news Crazy People, Crazy World Change the channel on the tube My horizontal hold is broken and I can't hear a word that's spoken But I'm sure I've seen this show before It happened just the other day The world turned upside down On the roller coaster ride and again on the giant slide But my feet were on the ground Crazy People, Crazy World Nothing much to lose The man on the radio says outside it's hot but it's gonna snow and The only happy songs are the blues It happened just the other day The sun rose in the west In the institution they planned a revolution But they forgot to do the rest Crazy People, Crazy World Change from day to day And when our past returns tomorrow and all our joys turn into sorrows (maybe) Then we'll stop these games we play It happened just the other day...

I’ve known since my childhood days Don’t you go out and get half-crazed You can have your cake and eat it too Hey listen, Junior – I’m telling you Stop thinking those silly notions Runnin’ away – overdosing The quitter’s way is not for you You’ll get what you want if you just see it through CHORUS: You gotta try to remember – life is OK You can’t wait for tomorrow – better get it all today You gotta try to remember that while you still believe Put your backbone in it – you’re gonna receive You gotta try! Love’s no good if you don’t wanna show it It’s there for the taking – I know you won’t blow it Open your heart – I know you can Love will lead you to that promised land CHORUS: You gotta try to remember – life is OK You can’t wait for tomorrow – better get it all today You gotta try to remember that while you still believe Put your backbone in it – you’re gonna receive You gotta try to remember that you are my friend Together we’re gonna reach that pot of gold at that rainbow’s end You gotta try!

Fallen Star. Where have you been lately? What has happened to our Billy Shears? They say you've gotten older 16 last time I heard So has living in the garden calmed your fears? Peace and love. You jumped up on the wagon I've bet you figured that it would make amends The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong 'Cause you're barely getting by without your friends. What is life? Why don't you ask your guru? He'll tell you while your guitar gently weeps. They claim you were forgotten. A dark horse that's for sure. But the money's piling up in great big heaps. Bangladesh. We thank you for caring I'll bet you figured that it would make amends The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong 'Cause you're barely getting by without your friends. Come Together Lonely Hearts Club. Don't you know all things must pass? So tell me how do you sleep with your heads filled up with grass? Please enjoy your golden slumbers. The mystery tour was great. The long and winding road is gone but I guess you can't relate. Imagine. Now I am the Walrus Hey whatever gets you through the night And what about Oh Yoko? (Watch out! Helter Skelter!) Don't you know that all good soldiers want to fight? LSD. You took us to the onion. I'll bet you figured that it would make amends. The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong Cause you're barely getting by without your friends. Uncle Albert. Are you really sorry? Turn me on dead man with your new wings You gave me the answer. The crimson dynamo Does your love really believe the things you sing? Mr. Kite. So you say you've had enough? I'll bet you figured that it would make amends. The top has gotten lonely so get back where you belong Cause you're barely getting by without your friends. Come Together Lonely Hearts Club. Don't you know all things must pass? So tell me how do you sleep with your heads filled up with grass? Please enjoy your golden slumbers. The mystery tour was great. The long and winding road is gone but I guess you can't relate. (C) & (P) 2014 Jeff Millar-Sax, Intrepidsongs (ASCAP) (C) 2014 IMS Technologies, LLC
