Leo Sayer Have You Ever Been In Love

In the morning light

Half awake and half asleep

Have you ever lay there thinking

Was it all in a dream

But you reach out and she’s there

Every moment everywhere

Have you ever been in love

Have you ever felt how far a heart can fall

Have you ever stayed up waiting for a telephone call

Just to hear her say hello

‘Cos you miss each other so

Have you ever been in love

Have there been times to laugh

And times you really wanna cry

Finding reasons to believe her

‘Cos you’d die a little if she lied

And when in times of doubt

Have you ever tried to work it out

But still she leaves you wondering what it’s all about

When she’s far away, did you ever felt the need to stray

And tried and then discovered it just doesn’t pay

And with her you can be true

For with her you can be you

Have you ever been in love

Have there been times to laugh

And times you really wanna cry

Finding reasons to believe her

‘Cos you’d die a little if she lied

And when in times of doubt

Have you ever tried to work it out

But still she leaves you wondering what it’s all about

[Solo]

And when in times of doubt

Have you ever tried to work it out

And still she leaves you wondering what it’s all about

And when the night comes down

Can you call this house a home

Do you dream you’re still together

And wake up alone

Have you ever been in love

The way that I’m in love

Have you ever been in love

Leo Sayer Something Fine

The papers lie there helplessly

In a pile outside the door

I’ve tried and tried, but I just can’t

Remember what they’re for

The world outside is tugging

Like a beggar at my sleeve

Ah, that’s much too old a story to believe

And you know, that it’s taken it’s share of me

Even though you take such good care of me

Now you say Morocco, and that makes me smile

I haven’t seen Morocco for a long, long while

And dreams are rolling down

Across the places in my mind

And I just had a taste of something fine

The future hides and the past just slides

England lies between

Floating in a silver mist

So cold and so clean

And California’s shaking like some angry child will

Who has asked for love and is unanswered still

And you know that’ I’m looking back carefully

‘Cos I know that there’s still something there for me

But you said Morocco and that made me smile

And it hasn’t been that easy for a long, long while

Looking back into your eyes

Oh, I saw them really shine

Giving me a taste of something fine

Something fine

Now if you see Morocco, oh I know you’ll go in style

I may not see Morocco for a little while

But while you’re there I was hoping

You might keep it in your mind

To save me just a taste of something fine

Something fine

Leo Sayer Don’t Look Away

Well, she talks in her sleep

‘Bout the men she meets

With so much passion

In the morning I ask

But she takes me to task

Says I’m over-reacting

She’s a woman, playing woman’s games

When I ask her, she looks at me like I’m strange

I say, don’t look away, babe

When I’m talking to you

Don’t look way, babe

It’ll do you no good

I’m into your game, babe

I been listening to you

Don’t look away babe

Don’t look away, no

Well, she sits on the phone

Like she’s here on her own

Making these calls to no-one

Then she slides out a ten

Says she’s seeing a friend

She’s got so much going on

She’s a woman, playing woman’s games

When I ask her

She looks at me like I’m strange

I say, “don’t look away, babe

When I’m talking to you”

Don’t look away, babe

When you know it’s no good

I’m into your game, babe

I’ve been listening to you

Don’t look away babe

Don’t look away, oh no

[Solo]

Well, I follow her down to some part of town

Where we’ve never been before

There’s a car in the drive, and a man sits inside

I gotta stop her, before she gets in

She’s a woman, playing woman’s games

When I ask her

She looks at me like I’m insane

I say, “Don’t look away, babe

When I’m talking to you”

Don’t look away, babe

It’ll do you no good

I’m into your game, babe

I’ve been listening to you

Don’t look away babe

Don’t look away, babe

[Solo]

Don’t walk away

Don’t you walk away

Leo Sayer Frankie Lee

On every corner of every avenue

The word’s been passed all around

You’d better watch out, lock up your daughters

‘Cos that bad Frankie Lee is back in town

All the ladies fall for Frankie

Saying, “Frankie Lee, how can it be

Of all the men here, you’re the only one

Who’s got the key, to set us free

Oh, Frankie Lee”

Now there’s a woman, in this neighbourhood

Who’s loving Frankie in her mind

But in fear of being’ discovered

She keeps her secret locked up inside

Just then a stone’s thrown up at the window

And she looks below, what does she see

There’s a man there, standing ‘neath the streetlight

It looks to be

Like Frankie Lee

You’d best believe

Well, old Frankie Lee steals through the back door

While her old man is leavin’ by the hall

But before she hears his footsteps

Frankie’s standing at the bedroom door

So she holds him, then she begs him

Oh Frankie Lee, don’tcha ever leave

And he tells her, she’s the only one

He’s got the key

That Frankie Lee

To set her free

[Solo]

Then as the moon fades, into the night sky

Frankie leaves while she’s asleep

Then he’s up and out on the street again

He’s got the key that’ll set you free

That Frankie Lee

[Solo]

Every kid in this ol’ gang-town

Yeah, they’d want to be like Frankie Lee

Please the ladies, like a vagabond

He’s got the key

That Frankie Lee

To set them free

Yeah, every kid in this ol’ gang-town

Yeah, they’d want to be like Frankie Lee

Casanova and Valentino

They’d like to be good as Frankie Lee

Every kid in this ol’ gang-town

They’d like to be like Frankie Lee

Please the ladies, live like a vagabond

He’s got the key

To set you free

That Frankie Lee

Leo Sayer Magdalena

Magdalena sits in her chair

Speaking to the mass

She talks in splicing splinters

She laughs like breaking glass

She said that she would have me spirit her away

Stealing all my images

‘Til there’s nothin’ left to say

Oh, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

Your love is like a razor

My heart is just a scar

Oh, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

She tells me that she wants me

Then she tells me not to bother

She tells me that I couldn’t hold

A candle to her father

She knows that she’s got me when I start to rave about

And she’ll just smile and flash her eyes

And blow the candle out

Oh, Magdalena

Oh, ho, ho, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

Magdalena lying there

Could make a dancer stumble

Make a preacher bite his tongue

And leave him with the mumbles

And if you think I’m crazy babe

Or that I’m kidding you

Just pay your dues and lose your blues

When she gets her tongue in you

Oh, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

Your love is like a razor

My heart is just a scar

Oh, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

Well I can’t be forgotten

And I can’t be ignored

You find me with my poems

And my songs

But if upon your journey you’re turning to L.A.

Won’t you take this little red-haired girl along?

Oh, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

Your love is like a razor

My heart is just a scar

Oh, Magdalena

Nothing like the saint you are

Leo Sayer You Win – I Lose

You win – I lose

That’s how it all begins

Well I try so hard in these affairs of the heart

But I know that I’ll never win

Well I talk to you sweet like honey

And don’t I treat you as nice as pie

But I can’t figure out when you scream and you shout

Why I have to apologise

You win – I lose

That’s how it always goes

I came into this thing with my heart in a spin

I went out with a broken nose

You win – I lose

That’s how it’s meant to be

Well I tried all I can just figure it out

But love’s just a mystery

Guess all you ladies would call me easy

But I’m a fool for the femme fatale

When she flashes those eyes, I’m not a man, I’m a mouse

Tryin’ to patch up a broken heart

You win – I lose

That’s OK, that’s the way it goes

Well I tried all I could but it did me no good

‘Cos all I’ve got is nothin’ to show

They say that men are always supposed to act

Like they’re not really tryin’

But when I come on cool nobody seems to notice

It’s a mystery

Yes it’s a mystery to me

Yes it’s a mystery, yes it’s a mystery

Yes it’s a mystery to me

You see you win – I lose

That’s just the way it goes

I came into this thing with my heart in a sling

I went out with a broken nose

[Solo]

You win – I lose

I guess that’s how we’re meant to be

I tried as hard as I could but it did me no good

You’re more than a match for me

And it don’t make no sense to me, no

Love is still a mystery

It’s just a mystery

Love is a mystery

Leo Sayer On The Old Dirt Road

I’m on the old dirt road

Without a care

Gotta sixpence in my pocket

Oh I’m a millionaire

Oh and I would do anything to go back there

On the old dirt road

Oh my brother and me

We make a mess all weekend

‘Til Sunday eve

Oh and I am travelling through the past

Oh and I can see myself

Face to face in the looking glass

Playing in the dust

I haven’t got a care

And nobody makes a fuss

‘Cos there’s no one there

On the old dirt road

I got no name

Build a castle wall

And knock it down again

Oh and I am a child again

Oh and I have no need to pretend

Oh I hear you cry

Go back to sleep

But I can’t make it stop

‘Cos it’s not a dream

Playing in the dust

I haven’t no cares

And nobody makes a fuss

‘Cos there’s no one there

I’m a millionaire

[Solo]

On the old dirt road

I’m a millionaire

Gotta sixpence in my pocket

I haven’t got a care

On the old dirt road

I ain’t got no name

I build a castle wall

And knock it down again

Oh and I would do anything to go back there again

Oh and I

I’m a child again

Leo Sayer Agents Of The Heart

Restless as the ocean

Stumbling in the dark

Blinded by emotion

Wishing on a star

Yeah I was yours from the start

And no stranger could tear us apart

Let me in to your heart tonight

When I’m beside you I see the child

In you tonight

I see a wild youth inside of you

Burning so bright

Split the ocean wide apart

Agents of the heart be kind tonight

[Solo]

Yeah I was yours from the start

And no stranger could tear us apart

In you tonight

Let your love create the spark

Leo Sayer An Englishman In The U.S.A.

Rambling around your city streets

I feel no earth below my feet

And I feel my life is crumbling into the sea

But I can’t swim three thousand miles

So all I have is lonely nights

I’m an Englishman lost in the U.S. of A.

And it’s a long way back home

Such a long way back home

And I’m wondering

Where am I gonna go

Lines dead, operators gone

And now the fear is coming on

And I hear my love wondering where have I gone

So I’m gambling my bucks for pounds

Yeah, but Lady Luck just won’t come around

For an Englishman who is stuck in the U.S. of A.

And it’s a long way back home

Such a long way back home

Oh I’m wondering will I ever get away

[Solo]

So here I am and there are you

Where wishful thoughts don’t serve no use

And all the worrying in the world won’t pull me through

So I think of love that might have been

And an airline ticket that’s like a dream

For an Englishman who is lost in the U.S. of A.

Such a long way from home

Such a long way from home

And I’m wondering, I’m wondering

Will I ever get to

I’m a long way, a long way

A long way back home

I’ve been wondering

Will I ever get to go, yeah

[Solo]

Yeah I’m waiting for you to take me home

C’mon baby

And I’m waiting for you to take me home

Yes I’m waiting for you to take me home

Take me home

[Solo]

Take me home

Leo Sayer Train

Running through my life

Like a river, like a song

The train keeps pushing me

Right back to the place where I belong…

Back along the tracks

Fly a million years

Right across my path

The train moves on, ringing in my ears…

Come on board

Come on board

Train, oh train, take me back, again

I remember, I remember, I remember

Train, Oh train, the journey ends and starts again

I remember, I remember, take me back

I’ve been up all night trying to get this down

Now I’m hallucinating

Staring at the wall, look what I’m creating

Look at the clock I’m twelve hours old

So many more remain

Way up ahead I know I see a train…

Get on board

Get on board

Train, oh train, all those memories, all over again

I remember, I remember, take me back, take me back

Train, oh train, the journey ends and starts again

I remember, I remember, take me back

Waited on the station all day

Just to see a glimpse of the morning train

Just to see the wheels turning round

Blowing up steam,

See what I mean,

You see what I mean…

Train, oh train, take me back again

I remember, I remember, I remember

Train, oh train, the journey ends and starts again

I remember, I remember, take me back
