Lyrics

Missionary Man
04:30
Well, I was born an original sinner
I was borne from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money piled up to my chin

My mother told me good, my mother told me strong
She said "Be true to yourself and you can't go wrong"
"But there's just one thing that you must understand"
"You can fool with your brother, but don't mess with a missionary man"

Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man

Well, the missionary man, he's got God on his side
He's got the saints and apostles backing up from behind
Black eyed looks from those Bible books
He's a man with a mission, got a serious mind
There was a woman in the jungle and a monkey on a tree
The missionary man, he was following me
He said "Stop what you're doing, get down upon your knees"
"I've a message for you that you better believe"

Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man

Well, I was born an original sinner
I was borne from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money

Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Thorn in My Side
04:15
Thorn in my side
You know that's all you ever were
A bundle of lies
You know that's all that it was worth
I should have known better
But I trusted you at first
I should have known better
But I got what I deserved

To run away from you (Run, run, run, run)
Was all that I could do (Run, run, run, run)
To run away from you (Run, run, run, run)
Was all that I could do (Run, run, run, run)

Thorn in my side
You know that's all you'll ever be
So don't think you know better
'Cause that's what you mean to me
I was feeling complicated
I was feeling low
Now everytime I think of you
I shiver to the bone

To run away from you (Run, run, run, run)
Was all that I could do (Run, run, run, run)
To run away from you (Run, run, run, run)
Was all that I could do (Run, run, run, run)

Run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run

To run away from you (Run, run, run, run)
Was all that I could do (Run, run, run, run)
To run away from you (Run, run, run, run)
Was all that I could do (Run, run, run, run)
When Tomorrow Comes
04:31
Underneath your dreamlit eyes
Shades of sleep have driven you away
The moon is pale outside
And you are far from here
Breathing shifts your careless head
Untroubled by the chaos of our lives
Another day, another night
Has taken you again my dear
And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon

When tomorrow comes (Wait till tomorrow comes)
When tomorrow comes (Wait till tomorrow comes)

Last night while you were lying in my arms
And I was wondering where you were
You know you looked just like a baby
Fast asleep in this dangerous world
Every star was shining brightly
Just like a million years before
And we were feeling very small
Underneath the universe
And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon

When tomorrow comes (Wait till tomorrow comes)
When tomorrow comes (Wait till tomorrow comes)

And you know that I'm gonna be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon

When tomorrow comes (Wait till tomorrow comes)
When tomorrow comes (Wait till tomorrow comes)
The Last Time
04:15
Well, the first time that I saw you
You were standing in the rain
You were waiting at the station
For the last connecting train
Well, who will you go to
When there's no one to betray
And I said, who will you go to
When your best friend turns away
Hey, hey

Last time you're gonna let me down
Last time you're gonna fool around with me
It's the last time
Last time you're gonna let me down
Last time you're gonna fool around with me
It's the last time, baby

There's a garden full of roses
There's a necklace full of pearls
You have come to take the roses
To give to other girls
Well, I am just a pretty thing
You wanted for a day
There is nothing left between us
There is nothing left to say
Hey hey

Last time you're gonna let me down
Last time you're gonna fool around with me
It's the last time
Last time you're gonna let me down
Last time you're gonna fool around with me
It's the last time, baby

People like you
Can be so mean
People like you
Just don't come clean

Last time you're gonna let me down
Last time you're gonna fool around with me
It's the last time
Last time you're gonna let me down
Last time you're gonna fool around with me
It's the last time, baby
The Miracle of Love
05:07
How many sorrows do you try to hide
In a world of illusion that's covering your mind
I'll show you something good
I'll show you something good
When you open your mind you'll discover the sign
That there's something you're longing to find

The miracle of love
Will take away your pain
When the miracle of love
Comes your way again

Cruel is the night that covers up your fears
Tender is the one that wipes away your tears
There must be a bitter breeze to make you sting so viciously
They say the greatest coward can hurt the most ferociously
But I'll show you something good
I'll show you something good
If you open your heart you can make a start
When your crumbling world falls apart

The miracle of love
Will take away your pain
When the miracle of love
Comes your way again
Let's Go!
04:13
He was the kinda guy, I liked the way he looked
He had a red silk tie, he had a forties suit
And I said "You're the kind of person I've been longing to adore"
"You're the kind of person I've been waiting for"
He said "The time is right to take a chance
'Cause I'm looking for a brand new romance"
"So come on baby, let's go outside
I've got a car in the drive and we can take a ride"

"let's go, I wanna fall in love"
"Let's go, I wanna fall in love"

Well, we went driving for an hour or so
Till we took the little Chevy down to Mexico
And I said "Blue eyed boy, you know I love the way you look"
"Why don't we find a preacher, who can get us hooked"
"You know the time is right to take a chance
'Cause I'm looking for a brand new romance"
And the great big moon was a shining down
He said "Forget about the preacher man, let's do it on the ground"

"Let's go, I wanna fall in love"
"Let's go, I wanna fall in love"
Take Your Pain Away
04:36
If I could find a way to soothe your troubled mind
Then I would erase your fears and help you to unwind
I would ease the burden that you carry everyday
Don't you know I'd find a cure and take your pain away

Take your pain away
Take your pain away

And even though you're far from here, don't forget I'm always near
Find comfort in these words I send in this cold world

Take your pain away
Take your pain away

For every aching heart
For every broken soul

So give up your worries, they'll only do you harm
There is no need to be concerned, it's just a false alarm

Take your pain away
Take your pain away
A Little of You
03:56
There used to be a time
I wore my heart upon my sleeve
There used to be a time
I'd show my gentle side to anyone
Through these years of wandering
I know I've been deceived
Through these years of wandering

And everytime you try to hurt me
You know you'll only hurt yourself
And everytime you try to hurt me
I know you'll be the one to suffer
When you think you're hurting someone

A little of you
A little of me
A little of you
Is hurting someone

Don't tell me I'm the only one
'Cause I don't need that space
Don't ask for love
I'll throw it back in your face
All of these promises
Were only made to break
All of these promises

And everytime you try to hurt me
You know you'll only hurt yourself
And everytime you try to hurt me
I know you'll be the one to suffer
When you think you're hurting someone

A little of you
A little of me
A little of you
Is hurting someone
In This Town
03:44
I could be anywhere else but here
But the rain won't let me go
There's a photograph hanging on my wall
Of a place I've never been to
I'll never make the grade
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
And I can't stop the rain
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
What do the papers say
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
Get up and go now

In this town something's got to change
In this town something's got to change

I'm looking at the world
Looking for a scene
Waiting for a day
Filling in time like I'm digging my own grave
I'll never make the grade
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
And I can't stop the rain
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
What do the papers say
(Feels like Sunday everyday)
Get up and go now

In this town something's got to change
In this town something's got to change
I Remember You
05:02
Well, there's a colour picture in my mind
Of all the places that I've left behind
The broken windows where the wind blows through
Empty shells of houses that have turned to ruin

Oh, we were so young
We didn't realise just what we'd done
Oh, we were too young

And I remember you
You were the back yard boy
Hiding in the wreckage of broken dreams
Standing by the railway line, standing

Oh, we were so young
We didn't realise just what we'd done
Oh, we were too young

And all the sweetness has been taken out of this place
So many memories are knocked down or replaced
And I can't stand to see the shifting time
Taking me further, leaving you behind

There's a colour picture in my mind

Oh, we were so young
We didn't realise just what we'd done
Oh, we were too young
