Uriah Heep Suicidal Man

Waiting by the window

Staring at my shadow

Not believing what I’d seen

Touching but not feeling

And wondering in what I was dealing

And not knowing where I’d been

So I began walking

And to myself I was talking

But didn’t know which way to go

Then I found a direction

And now I needed some action

But I should have just said no

Should have said no

Why won’t you help me or give me hand

‘Cause I’m close to becoming a suicidal man

What I need is someone with a definite plan

For I’ve waited for just about as long as I can

Suicidal man, suicidal, suicidal

Suicidal man

So on my travels

Still with all my troubles

I found someone who cared

The answer was so easy

That all she did to please me

Was to say a problem’s smaller when it’s shared

He was a suicidal man, he was a suicidal man

He was a suicidal man, he was a suicidal man

Who was he, suicidal man, who was he, suicidal man

suicidal man, suicidal man

Uriah Heep Proud Words On A Dusty Shelf

Stand up and fight

Or you’ll lose your right

You gotta stand in a line

Fightin’ hard to hold on to your mind

Seek and you’ll find

Proud words on a dusty shelf

Find and you’ll seek

Keep on keep on helping yourself

When the wind of troubles comes

Put away all battle drums

And stand up and fight

Stand up and fight

Don’t stand in a line

Hold on to your mind

Uriah Heep Weekend Warriors

Ten thousand stallions runnin’ wild

They dare to race the devil’s charm

The race is on, all thunderburn

They shed a weep of broken times

Wheels turnin’, wheels burnin’

See the eagles fly

Weekend warriors

Like shining night

Of days gone by

They’re born again

They’ll never die

Wheels turnin’, wheels burnin’

See the angels fly

Weekend warriors

Like silver lighting from the sky

These storm could horses thunderburn

Uriah Heep Playing For Time

Try, you get a roll of heartacche

Hear it and you’re with my mind

I’ve played with fire, burned my fingers

Now I’m gonna take my time

You don’t have to shout about it

Can’t you see it obvious

Feel it’s getting close to comfort

Why you make me search no more

Take your time with what you’re doin’

I can see the stage appear

Seized and held it on before her

Don’t you understand my fear

Can’t you see the time will tell us

How it’s gonna always be

You can wrap me around your finger

And that ain’t no mystery

Playing for time

That’s all I can do

I’m playing for time

Before I fall in love with you

You can push me every which way

Hey I got no place to pull

Yes we’ll do no rule devotions

When you fax the ace ???

Hold on, that is what the games go

And I want the nibble now

You can get to dream about it

I won’t do it anyhow

Playing for time

That’s all I can do

Playing for time

Before I fall in love

Playing for time

That’s all I wanna do

Playing for time

Before I fall in love

Break it off!

Oh you don’t have to shout about it

Can’t you see it obvious

Feel it’s getting close for comfort

Why you make me search your bus

Travel down the road of heartache

Hear it in your with my mind

Played with fire, burned my fingers

Now I’m gonna take my time

Playing for time

Before I fall in love with you

Playing for time

That’s all I want to do

Playing for time

Before I fall Playing for time

All I wanna do

Playing for time [vocal ad lib to end]

Uriah Heep Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel… Fallen Angel…

Everyone I see reminds me of you

I keep turnin’ round expectin’ you to be there

I keep seein’ our past through my looking glass

But fallen angel where are you now

After all these years I remember the tears

As we parted you said don’t forget me

You were ridin’ so high now they’re passin’ you by

Girl I never forgot you please come and get me

Livin’ without you is hard enough anyway

But knowin’ you’re hurtin’ makes it so much worse every day

I just wanna love you

Any way that I can

But watchin’ you cry wasn’t part of my plan

Fallen Angel… Fallen Angel…

Tell me how did it feel in your promised land

That you chose as your pain and your pleasure

A temporary sanctuary

Oh fallen angel I am you real treasure

Fallen Angel… Fallen Angel…

Uriah Heep Tales

We told our tales as we sat under

Morning’s sleepy sky

With all the colours of the sunrise

Shining in our eyes.

One, then another, with a story of yesterday’s lives

Or of a lover who had gone in a

Moment of strife.

No thought of sleep ever dwells upon

The wise man’s mind

Some task or audience stealing every

Moment of his time.

Thus we have learned to live

While mortal men stand waiting to die.

How can we do what must be done in

Just one short life.

And if you ask, then you must know.

If you still doubt, you should be told.

It was not we that made it so.

It was by those who went before.

And there you sit, tomorrow’s child

So full of love, so full of life

But you must rise to meet the day

Lest you become another tale

And there you sit, tomorrow’s child

So full of love, so full of life

But you must rise to meet the day

Lest you become another tale

Another tale, another tale

Another tale

Uriah Heep Heaven’s Rain

I look back on those days

At the permanent haze

And the dark that surrounded me

Then good fortune arrived

I saw life in your eyes

You talked about changing views

Freedom to choose, darkness to light

There lies the kingdom

Of beautiful stories

Pure as the heaven’s rain

Shine on the heartache

The bittersweet glory

Shine over everyone

Down the road I would fall

The wrong side of the wall

Sound of madness

Moved in for the kill

Then good fortune arrived

I saw life in your eyes

You talked about taking me

To a place I should know

Just you and me

There’s a hole in the sun

Where I wanted to run

There were clouds in the open sea

Then good fortune arrived

I saw life in your eyes

You talked about showing me

A place I should know

Just you and me

Shine over everyone…

Uriah Heep T-Bird Angel

She’s got me going crazy

Right over the speed of sound

And I swear if she knew what she can do

This thing would leave the ground

She’s got a streamline body

Shines like pearls in a rich man’s eyes

She’s there on the list of desire

Won’t you let me take my prize

I gotta have this T Bird Angel, so we can fly

I gotta have this T Bird Angel, and drive all night and day

She’s a two door diva

Yeah, just what I’m looking for

And lost in this moment of madness

It only makes me want you more

I gotta have this T Bird Angel, so we can fly

I gotta have this T Bird Angel, and drive all night and day

She’s my one temptation

There with her headlights on

She’s never too much to handle

On the road where she belongs

We’re burnin’ out the highway

Me with my foot to the floor

No wonder everybody goes crazy

Gotta drive this T-Bird more

I gotta have this T Bird Angel, so we can fly

I gotta have this T Bird Angel, and drive all night and day

Uriah Heep Poor Little Rich Girl

You say you’re gonna testify

Lie away, lie away

So you’re gonna gun me down

Go ahead, fire away

You say you’ll bring the curtain down

Turn around, walk away

You’re gonna close this theatre down

Go ahead, stop the play

Your money talks, you pull the strings

Someone waits, in the wings

You flick the switch, the dancer falls

You deal the cards, the dealer calls in your game

Poor little rich girl

Your money talks, you pull the strings

It’s a shame, poor little rich girl

Your money burns, we all have wings

You say you’re gonna leave this town

Fly away, fly away

So you gonna shoot me down

Go ahead

Your money burns

Your money stings

Another script, left on the floor

Another face is shown the door in your game

Poor little rich girl

Your money talks, you pull the strings

It’s a shame, poor little rich girl

Your money burns, we all have wings

In the game, poor little rich girl

It’s easy come, it’s easy go

It’s a shame, poor little rich girl

You lock the door, close the show

Uriah Heep First Touch

I dreamed of all

The wonders in the world

And lovers that I knew

I saw so many Good things

At one time

Mountains of emotion

Coming right into view

When I arose from my bed

I got the warm glow

At the back of my head

First touch, feel the power

Hear the thunder over me

First touch, out of nowhere

See the future over me

Then I dreamed about

The tenderness we shared

And how it makes us feel

Like every first encounter that we have

When I think I must be dreamin’

You tell me that it’s real

And here you are in my bed

I get the warm glow

At the back of my head
