Marc Cohn Hold On For Me

Save a place at the table

Cause that is where I want to be

I just hope that you’re still able

to hold on for me

I see a light in the window

I see you moving in the glow

I want to walk right up that staircase

Turn that light down low

Turn that light down low

Hold on for my love

Cause its coming right on up

Baby you just wait and see

In the middle of the night

with the covers tucked in tight

I hope that you can hold on for me

I dream that I saw my destination

It was clear as clear can be

You were standing at the station

Saying “Hold on for me!”

down that the station

Hold on for me

Hold for my love

Cause its coming right up

Baby you just wait and see

In the middle of the night

With the covers tucked in tight

I hope that you can count on me

I’m not talking about passions

No it’s so much more than that

I need your lovin’, your mercy

And that’s where it’s at

So leave a light on in the window

Leave the ribbons in your hair

Leave the worries until tomorrow

I will be there!

I will be there!

Hold on for my love

Cause its coming right up

Baby you just wait and see

In the middle of the night

With the covers tucked in tight

Hold on for my love

Cause its coming right up

Baby you just wait and see

In the middle of the night

With the covers tucked in tight

Well I hope that you can hold on

I hope that you can hold on for me

Hold on for me

Hold on for me…

Marc Cohn Careful What You Dream

He’s traveling down the road tonight

His heart his heavy but his load is light

He fakes to the left and he moves to the right

On this lonely road tonight

He moves to the right

He drops a penny into a wishing well

Nobody hears him as far as he can tell

He sees a thousand other wishes lying there

And so he wonders if the gods will care

If the gods are gonna care

And I know you are feeling lonely and blue

But all good things will come to you

Here is what I want you to do

Be careful what you dream

Be careful what you dream

Be careful what you dream

Because it might come true

I see him standing with moon in his eyes

There is so much I want to tell him

But I wonder if there lies

I know he don’t believe in no miraculous surprise

And there is so much I want to tell him

But I wonder if they’re lies

So I am traveling down the road tonight

Once I dreamed I was a singer

When I woke up I was right

I’m Most time in the darkness

But I’m headed for the light

So dream yourself a dream

Out on the road tonight

I know you are feeling lonely and blue

But all good things will come to you

Here is what I want you to do

Be careful what you dream

Be careful what you dream

Be careful what you dream

Because it might come true

Be careful

Be careful

Be careful what you dream

Marc Cohn Walk On Water

Let’s go down to the sound tonight

Tide is low and we can walk on water

Reel me in under that starry light

Just like the fisherman’s daughter

Baby when the bands and the barkers go home

They say that Venus she rises

From out of the foam

She dances on air and laughs at the moon

And watches young lovers in fiery dunes

So are you willing to wait for the miracle

Willing to wait it through

Are you willing to wait for the miracle

Or don’t you believe they’re true?

There’s an old man sitting by the side of the pier

He’s got his cross and his camera

And his bottle of beer

He just sits all day and all through the night

Praying for a vision or a heavenly light

‘Cause he’s willing to wait for the miracle

Willing to wait it through

He’s willing to wait for the miracle

What else is he gonna do?

What else is he gonna do?

Now me I don’t need no heavenly sign

‘Cause I got the water and the wine

So baby please let your lovelight shine

‘Cause we’re all gonna meet our maker

Sometime

That’s why I’m willing to wait for the miracles

I’m willing to wait them through

I’m willing to wait for the miracles

But I just can’t wait — for you

Just can’t wait for you

Let’s go down to the sound tonight

And walk on water

Walk on water

Walk on water

Marc Cohn Healing Hands

Tonight I cried the tears of a child

Who knows what fear runs deep and wild

Inside

But the river’s in flood tonight

I lay down and the light streamed across my face

I felt the beauty of some deeper grace

And I tried

To find my way to the other side

I feel your skin as smooth as silk

Drunk like a baby on his mama’s milk

Take me down under the wishing tree

Lay your healing hands on me

Been a long time riding this deserted train

There’s no messiahs out here, baby

But I found the holy grail all right

‘Cause I’m lying in your arms tonight

Yeah….

I feel your skin as smooth as silk

Drunk like a baby on his mama’s milk

Take me down under the wishing tree

Lay your healing hands on me

Lay your healing hands on me….

Marc Cohn After Midnight

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna chug-a-lug and shout

We’re gonna stimulate some action

We’re gonna get some satisfaction

We’re gonna find out what it is all about

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna shake your tambourine

After midnight, it’s all gonna be peaches and cream

We’re gonna cause talk and suspicion

We’re gonna give an exhibition

We’re gonna find out what it is all about

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna shake your tambourine

After midnight, it’s all gonna be peaches and cream

We’re gonna cause talk and suspicion

We’re gonna give an exhibition

We’re gonna find out what it is all about

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

After midnight, we’re gonna let it all hang down

Marc Cohn Isn’t That So

Did he know what he was doing

Putting eyes into my head

If he didn’t want me watching women

He should’ve left my eyeballs dead

Isn’t that so

Isn’t that so

You’ve got to go where your heart says go

Isn’t that so

Did he know what he was doing

When he divided high and low

You’ve got to bury the seeds in the dirt my friend

If you want the thing to grow

Isn’t that so

Isn’t that so

You’ve got to go where your heart says go

Isn’t that so

Well it’s the line of the least resistance

That leads me on….

Did he know what he was doing

When he made that perfect vine

His own son got the reputation

of turning water into wine

Isn’t that so

Isn’t that so

You’ve got to go where your heart says go

Isn’t that so

You’ve got to go where your heart says go

Isn’t that so

Marc Cohn Turn On Your Radio

I don’t know where I’m goin’

Now that I am gone

I hope the wind that’s blowin’

Helps me carry on

Turn on your radio, baby

Listen to my song

Turn on your nightlight baby, baby

I’m gone

Turn on your radio

I don’t know how it happened

Now that I am gone

I hope I’ll never hear it, baby,

Just in case I’m wrong

Turn on your record player

Listen to my song

Turn on your nightlight baby, baby

I’m gone

Really long gone

I don’t know where life’s goin’

But soon it will be gone

I hope the wind that’s blowin’

Helps me carry on

Turn on your radio, baby

Baby listen to my song

Turn on the nightlight, baby, baby

I’m gone

Long gone

Turn on your record player

(Turn on your record player…)

And listen to my song

Everybody had a hard year

And everybody had a good time

Everybody had a wet dream

And everybody saw the sunshine

Everybody had a good year

And everybody let their hair down

Everybody put their socks up

And everybody put their foot down

Listen, listen
