Cat Stevens 100 I Dream

They brang us up with horns and hollywooden songs

Dead snakes and poisoned wisdoms between our teeth

The evil that’s been done still is carrying on

And on this night there’ll be no peace

The old leaders’ bones still beat on our homes

They built our life before us, we had no choice

The evil that’s been done still is carrying on

And when they’re gone we’ll be the voice

Blue bird on a rock, slow wind blowing soft

Across the bare face of the sleeping lake

Rise up and be free, voice whispered to me

And in this way you will awake

Go climb up on a hill, stand perfectly still

And silently soak up the day

Don’t rush and don’t you roam, don’t feel so alone

And in this way you will awake

And in this way you will awake

And this way you will awake

Pick up the pieces you see before you

Don’t let your weaknesses destroy you

You know wherever you go the world will follow

So let your reasons be true to you

Stay close to your friends up until the end

And when they know that you feel the same way

Rise up and be free and die happily

And in this way you will awake

And in this way you will awake

And this way you will awake

Cat Stevens I’m So Sleepy

I’m so sleepy, yeah

I’m so sleepy, yeah

I could lay my head on a piece of lead

And imagine it was a springy bed

‘Cause I’m sleepy, sleepy

Soon I’m gonna slip away

In the night I feel it creeping, creeping, creeping

I’m so sleepy yeah

I’m so sleepy yeah

I could lay my head on a piece of lead

And imagine it was a springy bed

‘Cause I’m sleepy, sleepy

I can’t keep my mind away from my dreams

I hear them calling, calling, calling

Soon I’m gonna slip away

Soon I’m gonna slip away

Soon I’m gonna slip away

In the night I’m gonna slip away

I won’t fight it, I’ll just ride it

I’m so sleepy yeah

I’m so sleepy yeah

I could lay my head on a piece of lead

And imagine it was a springy bed

‘Cause I’m sleepy, sleepy

Yeah

Cat Stevens Tea For The Tillerman

Bring tea for the Tillerman

Steak for the sun

Wine for the women who made the rain come

Seagulls sing your hearts away

‘Cause while the sinners sin, the children play

Oh Lord how they play and play

For that happy day, for that happy day

Cat Stevens But I Might Die Tonight

I don’t want to work away

Doing just what they all say

Work hard boy and you’ll find

One day you’ll have a job like mine

‘Cause I know for sure

Nobody should be that poor

To say yes or sink low

Because you happen to say so, say so, you say so

I don’t want to work away

Doing just what they all say

Work hard boy and you’ll find

One day you’ll have a job like mine, job like mine, a job like mine

Be wise, look ahead

Use your eyes he said

Be straight, think right

But I might die tonight!

Cat Stevens I’ve Found A Love

Baby, I’ve never had a single thing in my life I could call my own.

There you were, holding a love so true,

Now I’ve got a home, now I’ve got a home.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

I found a love, baby

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

Hidden away from the world, baby

Baby, you really make me feel like a king, a king without a crown.

But darlin’, Promise me one little thing: That you won’t let me down.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

I found a love, baby

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

Hidden away from the world, baby

Don’t ever tell me lies baby,

Don’t take it for a ride baby,

Just stay here by my side baby,

We won’t ever stop.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

I found a love, baby

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet

Hidden away from the world, baby

Cat Stevens Welcome Home

Saw a sign on the path

“All seekers this way”

A fairy sat and laughed

And threw a peddle my way

As I neared the bridge

Two soldiers stood and stared

No one passes by us, but hey

You’re welcome here

Carried on down the road

To the market place

I was still alone

No one knew my face

Then a stranger sang

The voice like the wind

Then the hails began to sing

Welcome in

Time rolls on. Ain’t no good to sit and moan

Time rolls on. And so we travel on

Never did I imagine

What a dawn could be

Till I opened my eyes to see

It was welcoming me

At the end of my days

On my way home

I paused a while to gaze

Upon the sacred stone

There it stood in the middle

Of the holy domain

Then the people came out to say

Welcome home again

Time rolls on. And so we carry on

Time rolls on. Ain’t no good to sit and moan

Time rolls on. And so we travel on

Time rolls on. Ain’t no good to sit alone

Cat Stevens The Beloved

His wisdom flowed from Heaven’s Book

Just like threaded pearls

Just like threaded pearls

He left his self to flee to God

And God sent him back to us

He was born to be the beloved

A will of the Divine

He was born to be the beloved

He was born to guide

He prayed all his nights alone

In stars and Angels’ sight

And in the day he lit the way

With blazing words so bright

He was born to be the beloved

A will of the Divine

He was born to be the beloved

He was born to be kind

He taught the people to worship

Bowing to one God

Bowing to one God

His mercy stretched from East to West

To every man, woman and child

He was born to be the beloved

A will of the Divine

He was born to be the beloved

Nature – sublime

He opened up the doors of love

For every heart parched with thirst

He was a mercy to the worlds

And unto the universe

He was born to be the beloved

A will of the Divine

He was born to be the beloved

He was born to guide

Cat Stevens Sweet Jamaica

Other people come and go

They try to make it through

I have to smile and tell them no

Cause I only care for you

Country mama, brown country girl

When you touch me I, I feel so tall

Country mama, brown country girl

Everybody needs a friend

To brighten up their world

Got no time to runabout

Cat Stevens Come On And Dance

I take you out all over town

But you always start sittin’ down

You never move, baby whats wrong with me?

When we go dancin’ , you’re just there like a tree

Baby come on and dance, you’re holding me back

I’ve gotta get out this feeling, before i go mad

You gotta let me in, the music’s getting me now

You gotta come on and dance, stop hangin around

I don’t care if you twist or jive, just as long as you’re lookin’ alive

You’ll make me glad, baby you’ll make me rise,

I wanna see that twinkle in your eyes

Baby come on and dance, you’re holding me back

I’ve gotta get out this feeling, before i go mad

You gotta let me in, the music’s getting me now

You gotta come on and dance, stop hangin around

Cat Stevens Silent Sunlight

Silent sunlight, welcome in

There is work I must now begin

All my dreams have blown away

And the children wait to play

They’ll soon remember things to do

When the heart is young

And the night is done

And the sky is blue

Morning songbird, sing away

Lend a tune to another day

Bring your wings and choose a roof

Sing a song of love and truth

We’ll soon remember if you do

When all things were tall

And our friends were small

And the world was new

Sleepy horses, heave away

Put your backs to the golden hay

Don’t ever look behind at the work you’ve done

For your work has just begun

There’ll be the evening in the end

but till that time arrives

You can rest your eyes

And begin again
