Tennis 10 Minutes 10 Years

You could have me for ten minutes

You could have me for ten years

I could lose you in the hours

I could lose you in the tears, oh

The feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

The feeling’s gone completely

Those who measure time and distance

Haven’t known a love like mine

There is only perfect closeness

Don’t you leave it all behind

The feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

The feeling’s gone completely

The feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

The feeling’s gone completely

Oh, the feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

I lose myself completely, oh

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

You could have me for ten minutes

You could have me for ten years

We are only single moments

Strung together and held dearly

Tennis Ladies Don’t Play Guitar

Ladies don’t play guitar

Ladies don’t get down, down to the sound, do they

Maybe we can play pretend

Maybe I can go down deep just to be what you needed

Ladies just need your love

Don’t you know you’re all caught up in it

Maybe I’ve been listening

I can be the archetype of whatever you’re feeling, what you’re feeling

Maybe then I can try and give my love again

We’d pretend I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

Tell me what can I give

If all my work is bleak and abstracted

Tried to build a legacy

That will not complicate the future of your own progeny

Maybe then, I can try and give my love again

We’d pretend I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

Maybe then, I can try and give my love again

We’d pretend, I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

In the end, I decide how much my love can bend

We’d pretend I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

Tennis Fields Of Blue

Follow me into sweet fields of blue

Moving right in to deliver you

Follow me into deep fields of blue

Moving right in to

Delivering me to you

I really love you

What could I do?

I really need you

Oh, what’s the use in resisting?

I really love you

I cannot help myself

I really need you

Oh, what’s the use living without?

Follow me into infinite blue

All of the meaningless interludes

Every wave that rises in place

Strikes with a pattern

Obliterating me and you

I really love you

What could I do?

I really need you

Oh, what’s the use in resisting?

I really love you

I cannot help myself

I really need you

Oh, what’s the use living without?

You and I only

Over one hundred stories

Maybe I’m dreaming

Feel a bit like oblivion

You and I only

Over one hundred stories

Maybe I’m dreaming

Feel a bit like oblivion

Tennis It All Feels The Same

Took a train to

Took a train to get to you

Finally got there

And I couldn’t find you anywhere

We could be good but we don’t live the way we should

Constantly told we’re imperfect and can not be good

Took a train to

Took a train to get to you

Finally got there

And I couldn’t find you anywhere

We could be good but we don’t live the way we should

Constantly told we’re imperfect and can not be good

Tired of waiting around for you to intervene

Tired of wishing that you even knew what I mean

When I say a name I look for a change

But everywhere I go it all feels the same

[x4]

We could be good but we don’t live the way we should

Constantly told we’re imperfect and can not be good

Tired of waiting around for you to intervene

Tired of wishing that you even knew what I mean

Tennis Born To Be Needed

Baby, I was born to be needed

Baby, I was born to be needed

I always resisted convictions and mister, misses

But I’d do it, do it, do it again

Do it, do it, do it again

Immune to biology

It’s a lonely road to autonomy

But I would do it, do it, do it again

Do it, do it, do it again

Why should I deny myself?

Never really cared about my health

The simple kind of life

Cuts through me like a sharpened knife

Baby, I was born to be needed

Baby, I was born to be needed

Mother heard, might do me good

At least that’s been the word around the neighbourhood

We’re gonna do it, do it, do it again

Do it, do it, do it again

I know it’s an old refrain

But the need hit me like a hurricane

I fall into it, do it, do it again

Do it, do it, do it again

Why should I deny myself?

Never really cared about my health

The simple kind of life

Cuts through me like a sharpened knife

Baby, I was born to be needed

If my heart can’t take it, then maybe

I will give right into the feeling

Baby, I was born to be needed

If my heart can’t take it, then maybe

I will give right into the feeling

Tennis Baltimore

We can take it; we can make it

These streets can’t be tougher than the sea

Baltimore your potholes bore me

Can’t you see you’re acting poorly

Can we get a job, Can we get a job

We need off this dock

Is that asking alot

Can we get a job, Can we get a job

We need off this dock

Is that asking alot

Now I’ve seen it all before

When no one’s opened up their door

How is one meant to survive when one is over-qualified?

Tennis No Exit

I got a little bit left

I know that I can give a little bit up

I got a little bit left

I know that I can give a little bit up

It’s starting all over again

I feel my heartbeat quickening

I make a mistake, they all missed it

He’s prowling around in the night

Into his shadow wherever we go

Whatever I need to survive

We go down, down to the deep void

Right back into place, I can breathe again

We go down, down to the beat, boy

Right back into place

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

I am ecstatic like a hymn

And let the feelings disappear

Apocalyptic, my own mistake

I’m moving right into the end

Into his shadow, wherever we go

Our futures again and again

We go down, down to the deep void

Right back into place, I can breathe again

We go down, down to the beat, boy

Right back into place

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

I got a little bit left

I know that I can give a little bit up

I got a little bit left

I know that I can give a little bit up

We could die tonight

We could die tonight

Oh my God, I feel like I’m dying

Die tonight

We could die tonight

Oh my God, I feel like I’m dying

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

From where we are, we’re never gonna come back

Tennis Bimini Bay

An easterly breeze can pass along tears [?]

A passage make her anxious to leave

And ask of run line [?]

We’re making good time

We’ll make and far by dawn [?]

Oh aren’t you glad you came along

Sail me away to Bimini Bay

Oh Oh oo Oh Oh oo Oh

Sail me away to Bimini Bay

Oh Oh oo Oh Oh oo Oh

Sail me away to Bimini Bay

We’ve been gone oh so very long

That we’ve forgotten where we are from

We’ve been gone for so very long

That we’ve forgotten where we are from

Tennis Modern Woman

Kate, I’m so afraid you’ll hate me

I think I might have made it true

There’s no need to implicate me

You would never want the proof

All I want is comfort in a touch or a look

All I want is to get back the closeness you took

I know, that’s the way you appreciate me

Even though we haven’t spoken lately, oh

I think I might have made it real

I think I might have made it so real

I think I might have made it real

I think I might have made it so real

Kate, I know a modern woman

By the look and by the feel

We both got imposing figures

Getting good at striking right deals

All I want is comfort in a touch or a look

All I want is to forget the way you mistook

No, I’m not asking for forgiveness

I’m just getting tired of living with this

I think I might have made it real

I think I might have made it so real

[x4]

[Simultaneously:]

I think I might have made it real / All I want is comfort in a touch or a look

I think I might have made it so real / All I want is to get back the closeness you took

[x6]

Tennis Waterbirds

Still dreamin’ of the thick and green.

Salty marsh bed by the tidal stream.

Look down the [?] sleepin’ deep in the brush.

The night brings the hush I can hear the current

Beatin’ by the leaves of the Cyprus trees.

The insects chirpin’ underneath the leaves.

When you kiss me, you really kiss me.

Tell me how-ow-oo-ow can you resist me?

Did we ever really leave?

This is all I really need.

Did we ever really leave?

This is all I really need.
