Robin Trower A Tale Untold

Ain’t no lights around this harbour

The sea has turned and gone to bed

And far off cries the lonely siren

Or is that voice within my head

Right or wrong I know what she was saying

Cried out in her heart such a lovely face

Behind her eyes the sun is dying

Maybe the moon can take it’s place

Out there ships upon the winds are dancing

Tired old hands the sails unfold

Around their eyes the wind is sighing

Maybe the end, a tale untold

Around their eyes the wind is sighing

Maybe the end, a tale untold

Robin Trower Jack And Jill

Jack went down to the forest

For somewhere to lay his head

When Jill came by he was sleeping

She thought he was dead

[Chorus:]

Jack come back, oh baby please don’t go

Jack come back, I need you don’t you know

Jack would be a soldier

Marching off to war

Jill left behind but never mind

She’s cried for him before

[Chorus]

Robin Trower Carmen

Carmen…dreaming in your garden

Carmen…dreams are often broken

You’ll lose your chance if you wait

You’ll find that you left it too late

You’ll find that the moment is gone

You’ll be left dreaming on

Carmen…dreaming can be lasting

Carmen…dreaming can be arming

You’ll find that the time has been spent

And you won’t know where it went

You’ll find that the moment is gone

You won’t know what went wrong

Caaar…Caaar…Carmen…Caaa Car…Carmen…

Robin Trower Lost In Love

Far away,

Out where the mountains kiss the sky

Lost in love,

And days and nights go drifting by

Beyond the clouds, or so it seems

There’s a wondrous place for you and I

The lost horizon of our dreams

Where we could watch the world go by

Come with me,

A flower blossoms in her way

Lost in love,

She is the song of life I heard her say

Beyond the clouds, or so it seems

There’s a wondrous place for you and I

The lost horizon of our dreams

Where we could watch the world go by

Beyond the clouds, or so it seems

There’s a wondrous place for you and I

The lost horizon of our dreams

Where we could watch the world go by

Lost in love

Lost in love

Lost in love

Lost in love

Robin Trower Natural Fact

You had to see the lights from the other side

Now the situation’s tight you’re on the slide

Well things didn’t go your way so you had to run

And now you think “well, okay but where’s the fun?”

[Chorus:]

It’s a natural fact – opposites attract

It’s a natural fact – call it destiny

Now it’s cold out on the street and the night is long

And the music you found so sweet is just a siren song

Now you dream about a home you used to hate

You don’t have to be alone it’s not too late

[Chorus]

Robin Trower Shame The Devil

Theres a time, for living

And a time for love

Theres a time, for forgiving, yall

And a time to shove

Ohh theres more, won then lost

More hoping here to spare

And its waiting, waiting

Don’t ya spend your whole life hesitating

Come and tell the truth

Shame the devil

Theres more, light then dark

Honey shining down on you

More despair, then what you got

And baby you’ll need the truth

This whole world, has had enough

Of people giving up

And its waiting, waiting

Don’t you spend your whole life hesitating

Come on tell the truth

Shame the devil

And its waiting, waiting

Don’t spend your whole life hesitating

Come on tell the truth

Shame the devil

Don’t you know that its waiting, ah waiting

Don’t you spend your whole life hesitating

Come on, let loose

Shame the devil

Robin Trower Caledonia

Caledonia, Caledonia

Seeing you walk by

Make a river twist and shout

Shakes the birds right from the sky

[Chorus:]

Caledonia, who could own ya

Spirit of romance

Caledonia, Caledonia, dance

Caledonia, Caledonia

Your simple little greed

Make an inch of a loser’s wings

Make a fool right out of me

[Chorus]

Caledonia, Caledonia

You make my senses fly

Give me reason to believe

And I don’t wonder why

[Chorus]

Caledonia, Caledonia

Inside of my soul

Caledonia, Caledonia

We’ll move it slow

Caledonia, Caledonia

Caledonia, Caledonia

Robin Trower Another Time Another Place

Dry your eyes-wipe away your tears-my precious one

Everyday, some way, some where we’ll fall

The world must turn, that’s why we try to keep movin’ on

It’s always been that way… that’s all.

Now, I’m not sayin’ you won’t find somethin’ to believe in

Even the search can define the truth

But first time impressions can be so deceivin’

When somethin’ does your heart, you just turn it loose

And we will meet another time

The sun on our face

And we will meet another time

Another time, another place

There will be days when you just want to give it up

But things don’t always have to go our way

So take a drink, when they pass you the cup

The bitter can taste so sweet, another day

And we will meet another time

The sun upon our face

And we will meet another time

Another time, another place

So dry your eyes-wipe away your tears-my precious one

And watch as da-ays go spinnin’ by

The moments are lost when you hear the siren song

The spell will break when you hear first one cry

And we will meet another time

The sun upon our face

And we will meet another time

Another time, another place

Robin Trower Careless

He’s so selfish you know its true

Baby he’ll pull the rug right under you

He’s so selfish it just ain’t far

He’s got more fancy moves than Fred Astaire

Now you’re just one more string to his bow

But baby I think there’s something you should know

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

And he’s gonna lose your love

Don’t you worry I making plans

With luck he’ll play straight into my hands

What’s the hurry just take your time

The punishment he gets will fit the crime

Every ace that you deal will return

I’m just waiting for bridges to burn

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

And he’s gonna lose your love

Now you’re just one more string to his bow

But baby I think there’s something you should know

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

He’s getting’ careless

And he’s gonna lose your love

Robin Trower Still Be Here For You

Say what you want

I ain’t ever gonna change my mind

Do what you want

I only wanna stay alive

And when you realise

What you’ve turned aside

And cry one thousand tears

I would still be here for you

Fly on the wind

Hide your face behind the clouds

But I won’t give in

Your love I can’t do without

If you think it possible

For you to walk away

And stay away for one thousand years

I would still be here for you

I would still be here

I would still be here

I would still be here

For you

And you realise what…
