Living in a Fantasy (1980)


Time Ran Out On You

(Alan Tarney)


You feel there’s enough

You try because you do get lonely

And hearts feel too much

And right now you know you’re only blue

‘Cos time ran out on you

Well that’s tough


And so you try to steal the feeling

Back when you touch

A touch too much just starts you reeling now

You start to reason how

You know you do


‘Cos time ran out on you

Ran out on you

Oh, oh, oh, time

Ran out on you


You keep holding on

You know it’s wrong but you can’t let go

And here comes tonight

You say the situation’s not your style

You linger for a while

That’s what you do


‘Cos time ran out on you

Ran out on you

Oh, oh, oh, time

Ran out on you

Oh, oh, time


You just don’t feel right

And you pretend to be sincere

But nothing is clear

You’re not sincere

You’re not sincere


(Solo)


You still don’t feel right

And you have no intention to be left standing by

You say the situation’s not your style

So you linger for a while

That’s what you do


‘Cos time ran out on you

Ran out on you

Oh, oh, oh, time

Ran out on you

Hey, time

Ran out on you




Where Did We Go Wrong

(Leo Sayer / Alan Tarney)

Oh baby

You’ve stopped crying

Oh baby

Please, tell me what’s on your mind

I can see the tears but I don’t know why you’re crying

Is it me or is it you

Is it real or just a mood

Well I know you’re sad but what ya tryin’ to prove


When you say that you can’t go on

And you feel like you don’t belong

You’ve to nobody to lean upon

It seems we’ve come to so far but we just can’t get along


Darling, where did we go wrong

Where did we go wrong baby

Darling, where did we go wrong

I wanna know, I wanna know

Darling, where did we go wrong

I’m gonna try and try and change

Where did we go wrong


I’ve been workin’, never coming home at all

I left you chained to the kitchen busy walkin’ up the wall

Now I don’t want nobody else

And I’m not thinking about myself

When I say that I’ll do anything to stop you


Saying that you don’t belong

And what we had has just upped and gone

Please please try, try to be strong

Oh I apologise, I didn’t mean to lead you on


Darling, where did we go wrong

I know where we went wrong

Where did we go wrong

Ooh

Darling, where did we go wrong

Somewhere along the line

Where did we go wrong


(Solo)


Well you know there ain’t nobody else

I’d be a fool trying to please myself

If I thought that there could be anybody else


Well you’ll see now at time goes on

I’ll be the one that you can lean upon

We’ll dry out the tears and never have to say that we were wrong

Ooh babe we’ll get it on


Darling, where did we go wrong

We’ll start again baby

Where did we go wrong

Change, let’s change, let’s change

Darling, where did we go wrong

Baby we went wrong somewhere

Where did we go wrong

But we can try again

We can try again





You Win – I Lose

(Leo Sayer / Alan Tarney)

You win – I lose

That’s how it all begins

Well I try so hard in these affairs of the heart

But I know that I’ll never win


Well I talk to you sweet like honey

And don’t I treat you as nice as pie

But I can’t figure out when you scream and you shout

Why I have to apologise


You win – I lose

That’s how it always goes

I came into this thing with my heart in a spin

I went out with a broken nose


You win – I lose

That’s how it’s meant to be

Well I tried all I can just figure it out

But love’s just a mystery


Guess all you ladies would call me easy

But I’m a fool for the femme fatale

When she flashes those eyes, I’m not a man, I’m a mouse

Tryin’ to patch up a broken heart


You win – I lose

That’s OK, that’s the way it goes

Well I tried all I could but it did me no good

‘Cos all I’ve got is nothin’ to show


They say that men are always supposed to act

Like they’re not really tryin’

But when I come on cool nobody seems to notice

It’s a mystery

Yes it’s a mystery to me


Yes it’s a mystery, yes it’s a mystery

Yes it’s a mystery to me


You see you win – I lose

That’s just the way it goes

I came into this thing with my heart in a sling

I went out with a broken nose


(Solo)


You win – I lose

I guess that’s how we’re meant to be

I tried as hard as I could but it did me no good

You’re more than a match for me

And it don’t make no sense to me, no

Love is still a mystery

It’s just a mystery

Love is a mystery





More Than I Can Say

(Sonny Curtis/Jerry Allison)


Woh, woh, yeah, yeah

I love you more than I can say

I love you twice as much tomorrow, woh

Love you more than I can say


Woh, woh, yeah, yeah

I miss you every single day

Why must my heart be full of sorrow, oh

I love you more than I can say


Ah don’t you know I need you so

So tell me please I gotta know

Do you mean to make me cry

Am I just another guy


Oh woh, yeah, yeah

I miss you more than I can say

Why must my life be filled with sorrow, woh, woh

Love you more than I can say


(Solo)


Oh don’t you know I need you so

So tell me please I gotta know

Do you mean to make me cry

Am I just another guy


Woh, woh, yeah, yeah

I love you more than I can say

I’ll love you twice as much tomorrow

Love you more than I can say

I love you more than I can say

I love you more than I can say, oh


More than I can say – ooh

More than I can say


I love you twice as much tomorrow

Ooh – more than I can say

I love you more than I can say

More than I can say

I love you more than words can say



Millionaire

(Leo Sayer / Alan Tarney)

I got your postcard it made me lonely

I’m out of money and no-one really cares

The South of France has sunny weather

Pretty boats and lots of millionaires


Now you’re not coming home

You like the style and you’re staying here

Pretty boys everywhere you go

You lead ‘em on and then you disappear


You say you’re gonna find a millionaire

- Oh well I wish you luck

And we were never going anywhere

- And now you’ve had enough


You didn’t wanna be

Going broke with a loser like me

And you’re a girl who’s just gotta be free

And I don’t think you’ll ever be happy

Chasing a millionaire

Chasing a millionaire


All the streets are dead without you

Empty shops and old abandoned cars

In Saint Tropez your man is waiting

He comes with diamonds to the hotel bar


You say you’re not going home

You like the sun and you’re staying here

He’ll ask if you’re on you own

You say “why not” then you both disappear


Now you say you’ve found your millionaire

- Oh well I don’t care

Says he’s gonna take you everywhere

- I just don’t care


I bet he’ll let you down

That kinda guy never hangs around

He’s got a girl in every town

And I don’t think you’ll ever be happy

Living

Living with a millionaire


(Solo)


Now you say you’ve found your millionaire

- Well I don’t care

Says he gonna take you everywhere

- I just don’t care

Then one day he’s gonna let you down

He’ll have you searching every club in town

That kind of guy will only drag you down


You can go and take your millionaire

- Oh I don’t wanna know

Tell you that I really do not care

- Ah your life’s your own

You see them everywhere you go

Chasing the sun in Alfa Romeos

You gotta catch ‘em before they get too old

And I don’t think you’ll ever be happy

Chasing

Chasing a millionaire


Chasing a millionaire





Once In A While

(Alan Tarney)

I think of this most every night

How hard it is just to get it all right

I’m looking here and I’m lookin’ there

I see a heart broken

Pieces everywhere


Wouldn’t you try and wouldn’t you know

You try so hard still to let it all go

Too much trouble and too much pain

I think I’m gonna have that luck again


What’ll I do if you walk away

What’ll I do if you walk away

Well I haven’t a chance

No I haven’t a chance


Once in a while I get this feeling

Now and again I’m all in a daze

Time after time I ask myself this

Will you walk away

Once in a while I get this feeling


A crazy notion – A careless thought

I start to worry and time gets short

We’ll think if this my dear young one

The time to act has just begun


What’ll I do if you walk away

What’ll I do if you walk away

Well I haven’t a chance

No I haven’t a chance


Once in a while I get this feeling

Now and again I’m all in a daze

Time after time I ask myself this

Will you walk away

Once in a while I get this feeling


Once in a while I get this feeling

Now and again I’m all in a daze

Time after time I ask myself this

Will you walk away




Living In A Fantasy

(Leo Sayer / Alan Tarney)

You, you are my reason to live

You make me shine, with all the love that you give

And when I think of you, I keep driftin’ away, yeah

Little by little, I love you more every day

I lay in bed but I just can’t sleep

I close my eyes and you’re all that I see

I can’t believe that it’s happening to me


Living in a fantasy

Ever since you came to me

Yes I’m living in a fantasy

Drowning, drowning in this luxury

Ever since, Ever since you came to me

Oh I’m living in a dream


Oh, I know, there’ll be storms up ahead

We’ll blow them away, bring back the sun again

For love conquers all, the gloom and despair

Nothin’ can go wrong, just as long as you’re there

Yeah, I see a light on the path up ahead

I know you’ll wait on the cliff where you said

I’ll hold you close ‘til we’re right on the edge


Living in a fantasy

Ever since, ever since you came, you came to me

I’m just living in a fantasy

Drowning, drowning in this luxury

Ever since, ever since you came to me

Find me living in a dream


Oh you’re too much, too soon, you’re too strong

And I wanna drown in your touch

Don’t keep me floating too long


Living in a fantasy, living in a fantasy

Ever since you came to me, ever since you came along

Living in a fantasy

Drowning in this luxury

Ever since you came to me, ever since you came to me

I’m just living in a dream


Living in a fantasy

Ever since you came to me

Living in a fantasy

Drowning in this luxury, drowning in this luxury

Ever since, ever since you came to me

Living in a dream


Well it happens every day

Love has got a hold on me

I’m drowning

Ever since you came to me

Living in a dream





She’s Not Coming Back

(Leo Sayer / Alan Tarney)

Monday morning nine A.M.

I missed my bus I must’ve overslept again

Phoned up work told ‘em I can’t go on

Since she left, this house is not a home I know


She’s not coming back

She’s not coming back

She’s not coming back

She’s not coming back


All my friends they keep coming around

Well they can dress me up but I won’t paint the town

No-one else’ll do the things she’d do

All my fun is up because I know this time for sure


She’s not coming back

- Didn’t have a reason

- Had to be free

- Told me she was leaving

She’s not coming back to me


Monday evenings used to be so easy rolling

Staying home with her

Now this room is like a prison

Can’t go nowhere, I’m nothing without her

She’s not coming back

No she’s not coming back

Oh she’s not coming back – no more

No more, no more


(Solo)


Tuesday morning and it’s not that bad

Well I’m smiling now, thinking of all the fun we had

And if I see her, this is what I will say

“Well thanks for asking but as you see, I’m OK”


She’s not coming back

- Didn’t have a reason

- Had to be free

- Told me she was leaving

She’s not coming back


Oh she’s not coming back

No she’s not coming back

No she’s not coming back

No she’s not coming back, to me


Didn’t have a reason

She wanted to be free

She told me she was leaving

She was leaving me





Let Me Know

(Alan Tarney)

Are you ever gonna change your mind

Will there ever be another time, woh, yeah

You gotta let me know


I was hoping you would understand

Love was never meant to be so blind, woh, woh

You gotta let me know


Well I never had to wonder why

I’ve felt this way now for such a long time

And it’s taken everything I have

Just to tell you how it is, that I feel

Won’t you let me know

Oh let me know

Ooh won’t you let me know


We’re no strangers to this world it’s true

Everytime you cry it makes me feel so blue

Oh, won’t you let me through


Take another time another place

Take this heart of mine and dry your face

Oh, won’t you let me know


(Solo)


Well I never had to wonder why

I’ve felt this way now for such a long time

And it’s taken everything I have

Just to tell you how it is, that I feel

Won’t you let me know

Won’t you let me know

Ooh won’t you let me know


Let me know, let me know, let me know


Take another time, another place

Take this heart of mine and dry your face, woh, woh, woh


Oh, won’t you let me know

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, won’t you let me know

Oh, let me know

Let me know, let me know, let me know





Only Foolin’

(Leo Sayer / Alan Tarney)

Yeah, when we’re round at a friend’s house

You act so precious and cool

You tell her I’m nothin’ special at all

Just somebody who’s passing through

Just somebody who’s passing through


And here am I tryin’ to tell you again

But you just don’t understand

That we could be somethin’ special I know

If you’d only let go, take a chance

Try it just once, take a chance


But we’re only, we’re only, we’re only foolin’

You know that we are, we’re only foolin’

You know that we are

We’re only, we are, we’re only foolin’


Tell me what are you gonna do

About a fool who’s in love with you

What are you gonna do


When we go out on a Saturday night

Feel like I’m stringing along

I ask you where are we going from here

You know but you’re not letting on, babe

Well you know but you’re not letting on


So here we are at the crossroads

Between better or worse

You telling me I’m too serious babe

And one of us is gonna get hurt

Why do I always get hurt


We’re only, we’re only, we’re only foolin’

You know that we are, we’re only foolin’

You know that we are

We’re only, we only, we’re only foolin’


Tell me what are you gonna do

About a fool who’s in love with you

What are you gonna do


(Solo)


You know that we are

We’re only, we’re only, we’re only foolin’


You know that we are

We’re only, we are, we’re only foolin’


Tell me what are you gonna do

About a fool who’s in love with you

When you know it won’t do no good

To keep falling in love with you

I gotta know

I gotta know who’s foolin’ who


I wanna know who’s foolin’ who

We’re only

Foolin’

Foolin around


We’re only foolin’
