Tumble outta bed
And I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition

Then you heat the coffee up on the stove
Pull a cup down from the shelf
And you slowly turn your back on me
As I sing a blues song to myself

Slowly I turned...
Step by step...
Inch by inch...

Step by step
Rung by rung
We're climbing Jacob's ladder.

When they were up they were up,
And when they were down they were down...

And sometimes even now, when I'm feeling lonely and beat
I drift back in time and I find my feet
Down on Mainstreet

Lonely is the night
When you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light
And your mind is not your own

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Well, you don't know what
We can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride

Well, you don't know what
We can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free

Dear Mr. Fantasy, play us a tune
Something to make us all happy

The one who loved you so.
Well, you don't know me

You treated me just good enough until now
But if you're tired of me I'll get over you somehow
Oh, if you don't want me I'll dry my tears and move on

You just kind of wasted my precious time,
But don't think twice, It's all right.

You pick the place and I'll choose the time
And I'll climb
The hill in my own way
just wait a while, for the right day
And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds
I look down hear the sound of the things you said today

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night

Do the eyes not sparkle, Senses goin' keen
Takes me a love for 'long the way, to see her feathers preen
Kind of makes makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to go
We are eagles of one nest, The nest is in our soul

And I dream I'm an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings
Flying high, high, I'm a bird in the sky
I'm an eagle that rides on the breeze

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Don't send me no distant salutations
Or silly souvenirs from far away
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
Twilight is the loneliest time of day

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea

Grapefruit moon, one star shining
Shining down on me
Heard that tune, and now I'm pining
Honey, can't you see?

What you could truly be

Fall guys, proudfoot, redbone drag along
Cool fall nights you can still hear a song
Running with the moon on a black trace riverbank
Flatfoot and fifty with a coon on the run

But there was something about you (I didn't want you to know)
It brought a change over me (then it started to show)
I've got this feeling inside
Got to have you, have you, ain't no good to hide

And I hear them say
Hey you've got to hide your love away

I've got a secret and I can't explain
All the time I've waited for this day
All along I was never in doubt
I've always knew it could ever get out

The things that we're concealing
Will never let us grow
Time will do its healing
You've got to let it go

Oh, when I dream, my heart it goes on fire and I don't want to hide it
How could you deny it? It's just a dream
Underneath this stillness, I swim a troubled sea

I dreamed I met a Galilean
A most amazing man
He had that look
You very rarely find
The haunting hunted kind

They call me the hunter, that's my name
A pretty woman like you, is my only game
I bought me a love gun, just the other day
And I aim to aim it your way
