B.J. Thomas Superman

Wish I was the Superman

Stoppin’ trains and makin’ diamonds in my hands

A big reporter man

I’d write all the news today

And it would say

Up, up, baby and away

‘Cause I got fire in my head

And my feet they wanna dance

But I ain’t got a chance

If I’m gonna have to wait forever

Well it might as well be never

Don’t have a chance, no

I said I don’t have a chance

Well, well, it’s the underdog

And every door leads right back to the fog

You know baby, I don’t wanna win ’em all

I just wanna win this one, that’s all

Hey, hey ’cause I’ve got a fire in my head

And my feet they wanna dance

But I ain’t got a chance

If I’m gonna have to wait forever

Well it might as well be never

I don’t have a chance, no

I said I don’t have a chance

No, no I don’t have a chance

No, no ’cause I’ve got a fire in my head

Am I gonna have to wait forever

Well it might as well be never

I don’t have a chance, no

I don’t have a chance

B.J. Thomas Uncloudy Day

O they tell me of a home far beyond the skies,

O they tell me of a home far away;

O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,

O they tell me of an uncloudy day.

O the land of cloudless day,

O the land of an unclouded sky,

O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,

O they tell me of an uncloudy day.

O they tell me of a home where my friends have gone,

O they tell me of that land far away,

Where the tree of life in eternal bloom

Sheds its fragrance through the uncloudy day.

O the land of cloudless day,

O the land of an unclouded sky,

O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,

O they tell me of an uncloudy day.

O they tell me of a King in His beauty there,

And they tell me that mine eyes shall behold

Where He sits on the throne that is whiter than snow,

In the city that is made of gold.

O the land of cloudless day,

O the land of an unclouded sky,

O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,

O they tell me of an uncloudy day.

O they tell me that He smiles on His children there,

And His smile drives their sorrows all away;

And they tell me that no tears ever come again

In that lovely land of uncloudy day.

O the land of cloudless day,

O the land of an unclouded sky,

O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise,

O they tell me of an uncloudy day

B.J. Thomas I’ve Been Down This Road Before

I’ve been down this road before

I’ve felt like this somewhere before

I’ve felt the warm hand

Turn cold

Yes I’ve been down that road before

I’ve walked along this road somewhere

I learned a lot then and there

I know a smile can turn into a frown

I’ve been down that road before

I missed a lot of chances

Along the way

And I’ve seen a green light

Turn to red

Take the time

To read the detour sign

It’s a heavy toll to pay

Empty feelings left to bare

I reached for you but you weren’t there

Time stood still

With darkness at my door

Yes I’ve been down that road before

Yes I’ve been down that road before

Yes I’ve been down that road before

B.J. Thomas I’ve Been Alone Too Long

Funny how you can go on livin’

And lose the simple knack of givin’

It slips away before ya know it’s gone

Ya build up walls and before ya know it

Someone moves you and you want to show it

But you just can’t find a way of lettin’ on

I’ve been alone too long

Baby now don’t you see

I’ve been alone too long

That’s all that’s wrong with me

I want to build you a dream

Paint you a sunrise

Write you a beautiful song

But I don’t know how

I’ve been alone too long

Funny how you can cut off feelin’

And tell yourself your wounds are healing

When all you’ve done is turn the pain inside

And when your sure no one can get to ya

Someone smiles and it goes right through ya

And wakes up somethin’ that you thought had died

I’ve been alone too long

Baby now don’t you see

I’ve been alone too long

That’s all that’s wrong with me

I want to build you a dream

Paint you a sunrise

Write you a beautiful song

But I don’t know how

I’ve been alone too long

I’ve been alone too long

I’ve been alone too long

I’ve been alone too long

I’ve been alone too long

B.J. Thomas God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry gentlemen

Let nothing you dismay

Remember Christ our savior

Was born on Christmas day

To save us all from Satan’s power

When we were gone astray

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

From God our heavenly Father

The blessed Angel came

And unto certain shepherds

Brought tidings of the same

How that in Bethlehem was born

The Son of God by name

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem

Where our dear Savior lay

They found Him in a manger

Where oxen feed on hay

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises

All you within this place

And with true love and brotherhood

Each other now embrace

This holy tide of Christmas

All others doth deface

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

B.J. Thomas Hey Jesus, You’re My Best Friend

You almost have to lose your mind

To find yourself sometimes

You have to close your eyes to see

Just when I thought I’d reached the end

You let it all begin

You made it easy to be me

You’re the wall I hide behind

You shelter me from time to time

You’re reaching out

When I feel like giving in

You’re the door that I walk through

When I need someone to turn to

Hey Jesus

You’re my best friend

You’re the only one

I’ve ever found

That didn’t give up

When I let ’em down

I guess that’s how love’s supposed to be

When there’s no one else around

I fall down to the ground

I feel so tall down on my knees

You’re the wall I hide behind

You shelter me from time to time

You’re reaching out

When I feel like giving in

Oh, you’re the door that I walk through

When I need someone to turn to

Hey Jesus

You’re my best friend

Hey hey Jesus

You’re my best friend

B.J. Thomas I Wanna Be Ready

I don’t know how long I’ll be here

‘Cause Jesus said He’d come again

And where He leads I will go with Him

When I hear Him call my name

I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

I cannot be sure of

When it will take place

But it does not matter

If I’m walking in His grace

I feel it won’t be long now

Until He comes for me

He’s gonna take me with Him

And at His feet I’ll bow

I wanna be ready

Oh, I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

Oh, I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

Oh, I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

Oh, I wanna be ready

I wanna be ready

Oh, I wanna be ready

Oh, I wanna be ready

B.J. Thomas Crying

I was all right

For a while

I could smile for a while

And then I saw you last night

You held my hand so tight

As you stopped to say hello

As you wished me well

You couldn’t tell that

That I’d been crying

I thought that I

Was over you

But it’s true oh so true

I love you even more than I did before

But darlin’ what can I do

For you don’t love me

And I’ll always be

Crying

Over you

Crying

Over you

Yes now you’re gone

And from this moment on

I’ll be crying

Crying

Crying

Crying

Crying

Crying

Oh over you

I was all right

For a while

I could smile for a while

B.J. Thomas I Saw Pity In The Face Of A Friend

I saw pity in the face of a friend

And that’s something I don’t wanna see again

With sad eyes he gave me sympathy

‘Cause he knew

Yes he knew

That you’ve been cheatin’ on me

Oh I saw pity in the face of a friend

Even though he tried to hide it with a grin

Yes he put on a very good act

But I knew, yes I knew

You’d been runnin’ around behind my back

So I’m taking that road away from you

Gonna find myself a place to hide

And when people remember they say

He was saving face and pride

Oh oh

I saw pity in the face of my friend

But for some reason I had to look again

And there in his eyes

The truth was plain to see

It was him, yes it was him

That you really loved and not me

Oh I saw saw pity in the eyes of my friend

And it told me that you loved only him

And not me

Oh oh I saw pity in the eyes of a friend

B.J. Thomas There’ll Be No Teardrops Tonight

I’ll pretend I’m free from sorrow

Make believe that wrong is right

Your wedding day will be tomorrow

But there’ll be no teardrops tonight

Ooh, why, oh, why should you desert me

Are you doing this for spite

If you only want to hurt me

Then there’ll be no teardrops tonight

I believe that you still love me

When you wear your vail of white

But you think that you’re above me

But there’ll be no teardrops tonight

Oh shame, oh shame for what you’re doing

Other arms will hold you tight

You don’t care whose life you’re ruining

But there’ll be no teardrops tonight
