EARLY SONGS HOLD A TORCH UP IN THE SHADOWS OF FAME GOSPEL BRIDGE DA WRAG SILLY-SLY SONGS


From HERE
to
JUBILEE


Nobody Special

I've been down, sleeping under bridges
I've been up, walking along ridges
In the spaces between yours and mine
I've been out, taking lots of chances
In a spin, making up new dances
In my paces, as I walk down the line

Everywhere I go, there's no "there" that shows
Only vacant lots or rows of condos
With automobiles chockful of heartless automatons
Bent on automatic transactions
If you got any heart, bless me now
'Cause I can't stand all the static

I've been down, sleeping under bridges
I've been up, walking along ridges
In the spaces between yours and mine
I've been out, taking lots of chances
In a spin, making up new dances
In my paces, as I walk down the line

Everywhere I go, winds of changes blow
Deep in the dark I see the dawn's crack glow
Yet how many in the world of rolodex
See it appearing, you know it's tragic
When we get caught up in a solo hex
As if money were the only magic

Up in the night-time, Down in the daylight
Out in the inner light of silent truth
Next to the far side, Held by edge of night
Close to the outcome, Bright as days of youth
Taken for granted, Passed over each time
I stood up to speak out on love and hate
Shaken by an earthquake, Down to quick-lime
So, I will sing this now, before it's to late:

I've been down, sleeping under bridges
I've been up, walking along ridges
In the spaces between yours and mine
I've been out, taking lots of chances
In a spin, making up new dances
In my paces, as I walk down the line

Everywhere I go, down home folks feel it
The heart of this earth cries, won't you heal it
Now, I'm Nobody Special, I have no need for
The big pay-off for which liars wait
Yet, this world hasn't enough love, it needs more
To guide us all through tomorrow's dire straits
This world hasn't enough love, it needs more
This world hasn't enough love, it needs yours
