    Stairway to Heaven

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold And she's buying a stairway to heaven
    When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed With a word she can get what she came for
    Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven

    There's a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure 'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
    In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

    There's a feeling I get when I look to the west And my spirit is crying for leaving
    In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees And the voices of those who stand looking

    And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune Then the piper will lead us to reason
    And a new day will dawn for those who stand long And the forests will echo with laughter

    And it makes me wonder

    If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now It's just a spring clean for the May queen
    Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run There's still time to change the road you're on

    Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know The piper's calling you to join him
    Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

    And as we wind on down the road Our shadows taller than our soul
    There walks a lady we all know Who shines white light and wants to show
    How everything still turns to gold And if you listen very hard
    The tune will come to you at last When all is one and one is all,
    To be a rock and not to roll

    And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

    Wonderful Tonight

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    t's late in the evening
    She's wondering what clothes to wear
    She puts on her make up
    And brushes her long blonde hair
    And then she asks me, "Do I look alright?"
    And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight"

    We go to a party
    And everyone turns to see
    This beautiful lady
    That's walking around with me
    And then she asks me, "Do you feel alright?"
    And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight"

    I feel wonderful
    Because I see the love light in your eyes
    And the wonder of it all
    Is that you just don't realize how much I love you

    It's time to go home now
    And I've got an aching head
    So I give her the car keys
    She helps me to bed
    And then I tell her, as I turn out the light
    I say, "My darling, you are wonderful tonight"
    Oh my darling, you are wonderful tonight

    Rocket Man

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    She packed my bags last night pre-flight
    Zero hour 9:00 a.m.
    And I'm gonna be high As a kite by then

    I miss the Earth so much I miss my wife
    It's lonely out in space
    On such a timeless flight

    And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
    'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
    I'm not the man they think I am at home
    Oh, no, no, no
    I'm a rocket man
    Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone

    And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
    'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
    I'm not the man they think I am at home
    Oh, no, no, no
    I'm a rocket man
    Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone

    Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids In fact it's cold as hell
    And there's no one there to raise them If you did
    And all this science I don't understand
    It's just my job five days a week A rocket man

    And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
    'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
    I'm not the man they think I am at home
    Oh, no, no, no
    I'm a rocket man

    Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
    And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
    'Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
    I'm not the man they think I am at home
    Oh, no, no, no
    I'm a rocket man
    Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone

    And I think it's gonna be a long, long time....

    Desperado

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
    You've been out ridin' fences for so long now
    Oh, you're a hard one
    I know that you got your reasons
    These things that are pleasin' you
    Can hurt you somehow

    Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
    She'll beat you if she's able
    You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
    Now it seems to me, some fine things
    Have been laid upon your table
    But you only want the ones that you can't get

    Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
    Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
    And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'
    Your prison is walking through this world all alone

    Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
    The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
    It's hard to tell the night time from the day
    You're losin' all your highs and lows
    Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

    Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
    Come down from your fences, open the gate
    It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
    You better let somebody love you
    (Let somebody love you)
    You better let somebody love you before it's too late

    Desperado

    Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    Look out on a summer's day
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

    Shadows on the hills
    Sketch the trees and the daffodils
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills
    In colors on the snowy linen land

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free

    They would not listen, they did not know how
    Perhaps they'll listen now

    Starry, starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling clouds in violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

    Colors changing hue
    Morning fields of amber grain
    Weathered faces lined in pain
    Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free

    They would not listen, they did not know how
    Perhaps they'll listen now

    For they could not love you
    But still your love was true
    And when no hope was left in sight
    On that starry, starry night

    You took your life, as lovers often do
    But I could've told you Vincent
    This world was never meant for
    One as beautiful as you

    Starry, starry night
    Portraits hung in empty halls
    Frame-less heads on nameless walls
    With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

    Like the strangers that you've met
    The ragged men in ragged clothes
    The silver thorn of bloody rose
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

    Now I think I know
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free

    They would not listen, they're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will

    Fire and Rain

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
    Susanne, the plans they made put an end to you
    I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
    Just can't remember who to send it to

    I've seen fire and I've seen rain
    I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
    I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
    But I always thought that I'd see you again

    Won't you look down upon me, Jesus, You've got to help me make a stand
    Just got to see me through another day
    My body's aching and my time is at hand
    I won't make it any other way

    I've seen fire and I've seen rain
    I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
    I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
    But I always thought that I'd see you again

    Now walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun
    Lord, knows when the cold wind blows, it'll turn your head around
    Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line
    To talk about things to come
    Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

    I've seen fire and I've seen rain
    I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
    I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
    But I always thought that I'd see you again

    I've seen fire and I've seen rain
    I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
    I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
    But I always thought that I'd see you again

    Time in a Bottle

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that I'd like to do
    Is to save every day till eternity passes away
    Just to spend them with you

    If I could make days last forever
    If words could make wishes come true
    I'd save every day like a treasure and then
    Again, I would spend them with you

    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do, once you find them
    I've looked around enough to know
    That you're the one I want to go through time with

    If I had a box just for wishes
    And dreams that had never come true
    The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
    They were answered by you

    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do, once you find them
    I've looked around enough to know
    That you're the one I want to go through the time wit

    Just the Way You Are

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    Don't go changing, to try and please me
    You never let me down before
    Don't imagine you're too familiar
    And I don't see you anymore

    I would not leave you in times of trouble
    We never could have come this far
    I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
    I'll take you just the way you are

    Don't go trying some new fashion
    Don't change the color of your hair
    You always have my unspoken passion
    Although I might not seem to care

    I don't want clever conversation
    I never want to work that hard
    I just want someone that I can talk to
    I want you just the way you are

    I need to know that you will always be
    The same old someone that I knew
    What will it take till you believe in me
    The way that I believe in you

    I said I love you and that's forever
    And this I promise from the heart
    I couldn't love you any better
    I love you just the way you are

    I don't want clever conversation
    I never want to work that hard
    I just want someone that I can talk to
    I want you just the way you are

    Just the Way You Are

    The Long and Winding Road

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    The long and winding road, that leads, to your door
    Will never disappear, I've seen that road before
    It always leads me here, lead me to your door
    The wild and windy night, that the rain, washed away
    Has left a pool of tears, crying for the day
    Why leave me standing here, let me know the way

    Many times I've been alone, and many times I've cried
    Any way you'll never know, the many ways I've tried
    And still they lead me back, to the long winding road
    You left me standing here a long long time ago
    Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to your door

    But still they lead me back to the long winding road
    You left me standing here, a long long time ago
    Don't keep me waiting here (Don't keep me waiting), lead me to your door
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Lucky Man

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    He had white horses
    And ladies by the score
    All dressed in satin
    And waiting by the door

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    White lace and feathers
    They made up his bed
    A gold covered mattress
    On which he was led

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    He went to fight wars
    For his country and his king
    Of his honor and his glory
    The people would sing

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    A bullet had found him
    His blood ran as he cried
    No money could save him
    So he laid down and he died

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    Lucky Man

    Bridge over Troubled Water

    Sheet Music Buy track Lyrics

    When you're weary, feeling small,
    When tears are in your eyes
    I will dry them all
    I'm on your side
    Oh when times get rough
    And friends just can't be found

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you
    I'll take your part
    Oh when darkness comes
    And pain is all around

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    Sail on, silver girl
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way
    See how they shine
    Oh if you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind

    Bridge over Troubled Water
