You Better Run
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)

What you tryin' to do to my heart?
What you tryin' to do to my heart?
You go around tellin' lies
You're foolin' 'round with the other guys
What you tryin' to do to my heart?

CHORUS:
You better run, you better hide
You better leave from my side

What you tryin' to do to my soul?
What you tryin' to do to my soul?
Everything I had was yours
and now I'm closin' all the doors
What you tryin' to do to my soul?
(chorus)

I love you girl, I love you so
Can't you see it don't you know?
I can't stand your alibis, your tellin' lies,
you drive me wild
Mercy, I can't stand anymore

Oh, what you tryin' to do to my head?
What you tryin' to do to my head?
Now I gotta draw that line
You're not gonna take my mind
What you tryin' to do to my head?
(chorus)

I can't stand anymore,
leave me alone, woman!
Go way; too much; have mercy!
I need you, I need you!

Groovin'
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)


Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn't get away too soon
I can't imagine anything that's better
The world is ours whenever we're together
There ain't a place I'd like to be instead of

Movin' down a crowded avenue
Doin' anything we'd like to do
There's always lots of things that
we could see
We could be anyone
we'd like to be
And all those happy people
we could meet just

Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn't away too soon
no no no no

We'll keep on spendin'
sunny days this way
We're gonna talk and laugh
our time away
I feel it comin' closer
day by day
Life would be ecstasy
you and me endlessly
Groovin' on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn't get away too soon

How Can I Be Sure
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)

How can I be sure
in a world that's constantly changing
How can I be sure
where I stand with you
Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
I wanna die because you know
I wanna stay with you

How do I know
Maybe you're trying to use me
Flying too high can confuse me
Touch me but don't take me down

Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
My alibi is tellin' people I don't care for you
Maybe I'm just hanging around
with my head up, upside down
It's a pity I can't seem to find someone
who's as pretty and lovely as you

How can I be sure
I really, really, really, wanna know
I really, really, really, wanna know
(Break)

How's the weather
Weather or not, we're together
Together we'll see it much better
I love you, I love you forever
You know where I can be found

How can I be sure
in a world that's constantly changing
How can I be sure
I'll be sure with you

It's Wonderful
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)

It's wonderful, wonderful

Tell you a story
May seem hard to believe in
Kind of deceivin'
All of my glory made me
much more aware
of the problem we share
If we unite it'll all turn out right
It's wonderful, you can feel it believe me
It's wonderful, everything'll be right
It's wonderful, I'm gonna take you with me

Every awareness
Seems to bring us together
storm in the weather
Being enlightened is like choosing the road
in which you wish to go
Planting a seedling and watching it grow
It's wonderful, you can feel it believe me
Wonderful, everything'll be right
It's wonderful, I think I'm goin', goin'
Goin', goin', goin', goin', goin'....
(Break)

People keep happy
You'll be happier yet for there's
help you forget
When you are happy every place
feels like home
'cause you're never alone
There's much to be said but
it's all in your head

It's 'wonderful, ain't it groovy
Wonderful
It's wonderful,
you can feel it believe me
Wonderful, everything'll be right
I wanna take you with me
Wonderful, it's gonna be right
Gonna ride with my baby
Wonderful, wonderful

People Got To Be Free
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)

All the world over, so easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free
Listen, please listen,
that's the way it should be
Peace in the valley, people got to be free

You should see what a lovely,
lovely world this'd be
If everyone learned to live together
Seems to me such an easy,
easy thing should be
Why can't you and me
learn to love one another?

All the world over, so easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free
I can't understand it, so simple to me
People everywhere just got to be free

If there's a man who is down
and needs a helpin' hand
All it takes is you to understand
and to pull him through
Seems to me we got to solve it individually
And I'll do unto you what you do to me

Shout it from the mountains on out to the sea
No two ways about it, people have to be free
Ask me my opinion, my opinion will be
A natural situation for a man to be free

Oh, what a feelin's just come over me
Love can move a mountain,
make a blind man see
Everybody sing it now come on let's go see
Peace in the valley now, we all can be free

See that train over there?
That's the train of freedom
It's about to arrive any minute, now
You know it's been a long, long overdue
Look out 'cause it's a comin' right on through

 

Love is a Beautiful Thing
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)

What you know about love?
I know love is out of sight
What you know about life?
I think life can be so nice
If I find somebody
What you think will happen to me?
You'll find that love is a beautiful thing
Will teach your heart to sing
The kind of thing that makes you crazy
Makes you wanna swing

How can you tell you got it?
You feel it right in your heart
When should I get on it?
It's never too soon to start
And I've gotta find somebody
To prove what you're tellin' me
They say that love is a beautiful thing
Can teach your heart to sing
The kind of thing that makes you crazy
Makes you wanna swing; go get it now!
(Break)

What you think about that?
Well, I think it's kinda nice
Love is really out of sight
I'm glad I took your advice
'Cause I went and got somebody
To prove what you said was true
I know that love is a beautiful thing
Can teach your heart to sing
The kind of thing that makes you crazy
Makes you wanna swing
Love is a beautiful thing
Love is a beautiful thing

(I've Been) Lonely Too Long
(Felix Cavaliere)

I've been lonely too long
I've been lonely too long
In the past it's come and gone
I feel like I can't go on without love
I've been lonely too long
I've been lonely too long

As I look back, I can see me
lost and searching
Now I find that I can choose
I'm free oh yeah
So funny I just have to laugh
All my troubles been torn in half
I been lonely too long
Lonely too long

In the past it's come and gone
I feel like I can't go on without love
I've been lonely, lonely too long
I've been lonely too long

To see you now, makes it worth
the time I've waited
She was all I need to
make me see oh yeah
I keep hopin' with all my might
Everything's gonna turn out right
I've been lonely too long
I've been lonely too long

Now look at me, gliding through
this world of beauty
Everything I do brings ecstasy oh yeah
So wonderful I could die
I feel like I'm 'bout ten miles high
I've been lonely too long
Lonely too long

Found myself somebody
Don't have to be alone no more
I've been lonely so long
Don't have to be alone no more, no more

A Girl Like You
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)


I don't know what it's all about
But I feel I"ll soon find out I'm sure
never felt this secure
It's nothin' like I ever thought it would be
Someone opened up a door for me
A girl like (I'm in love with)
Girl like you (I'm in love with)

CHORUS:
Must be you that caused
this feelin' in me
You that fills me confidently
You that brings the best out in me
You...uhhhhhh...nobody but you

I don't know what it's all about
I can't begin to figure out what to do
so I leave it to you
Only know that when you're
away from me
Nothin' satisfies the need in me
For a girl like you (I'm in love with)
A girl like you (I'm in love with)
(chorus)

Every time I'm holdin' you close to me
Trouble's gone, it's gone, I'm in ecstasy
With a girl (I'm in love with)
Girl like you (I'm in love with)
Someone to love me (I'm in love with)
Girl like you (I'm in love with)
Someone, someone to understand
Exactly like you (I'm in love with)
Girl, girl, girl (I'm in love with)

Girl, girl, girl (I'm in love with)

Easy Rollin'
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)


Easy rollin', ain't no need to hurry at all
It's just a special mornin' when I wake yawnin'
and sun is shinin'
I feel like I've been dreamin'
and freelance schemin'
on colored rainbows
Everything's fine as long as it's...

Easy rollin', you never see me
worry no more, oh no
Don't have a care or worry
no need to hurry for relaxation
I'm turnin' in all my hassles
and buildin' castles
For my vacation
It's gonna be nice now
Just keepin' it...

Easy rollin', no need to hurry at all
Believe it, you don't have to worry
Hmm hmm hmm mmm, hmm oh

I'm livin' a dream a minute
deep down within it
My life's a flower
I think that I wouldn't change
or rearrange a single hour
Everything's fine now
It's got to be
Easy rollin'
Don't you hurry at all
Don't you worry no more
Don't have to hurry home
Keep it easy

A Beautiful Morning
(Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati)

It's a beautiful mornin'
I think I'll go outside a while
and just smile
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
No sense in stayin' inside
If the weather's fine
and you got the time
It's your chance to wake up
and plan another brand new day
Either way
It's a beautiful mornin'
Each bird keeps singin'
his own song
So long
I've got to be on my way, now
No fun just hangin' around
I've got to cover ground
you couldn't keep me down
It just ain't no good if the sun shines
When you're still inside
Shouldn't hide, still inside, shouldn't hide
Still inside, shouldn't hide
(Break)

There will be children
with robins and flowers
Sunshine caresses
each new waking hour

Seems to me that people keep seeing
more and more each day
gotta say, lead the way
It's okay, brand new day
gotta say, it's okay
Brand new day,
gotta say, lead the way
