Badfinger Song Lyrics

Badfinger – 1974

I Miss You

Though you’ve been gone for just a week
It makes me feel so sad to speak
Lady come back
I miss you

And though before I didn’t cry
Now my eyes are never dry
And a thousand jesters couldn’t make me smile

I miss you
I miss you

And now I know that I was wrong
But it’s too late, for now you’ve gone
Lady come back
I miss you

And though our times were good and bad
Now you’re gone, I’m always sad
And a thousand jesters couldn’t make me smile

I miss you
I miss you

Shine On

Shine on, shine on me
All I know is now I want you close to me
I can’t really tell you what the future’s gonna be
Just for now, little lady, shine on me

Lean on, lean on me
Something tells me that’s the way it’s gotta be
I can’t really show you what the future’s gonna be
Just for now, little lady, lean on me

To fall in love with love was maybe, just a fantasy
And promises we made could be insane
Don’t think of tomorrow, yesterday is past
And if you could, you know we could make it last

Drink on, drink on me
Slip and slide so I’ll forget reality
I can’t really say if I’ll come on and get so free
Just for now, little lady, drink on me

To fall in love with love was maybe, just a fantasy
And promises we made could be insane
Don’t think of tomorrow, yesterday is past
And if you could, you know we could make it last

Shine on, shine on me
All I know is now I want you close to me
I can’t really tell you what the future’s gonna be
Just for now, little lady, shine on me

Just for now, little lady, shine on me
Just for now, little lady, shine on me.

Love Is Easy

All I needed was your smile
Sayin’ it alright, I don’t mind
All I wanted was my chance
Baby, I could learn to dance

Well, love is easy, love is strange
Different people, different games
People, people, love a lot
Feel the love inside your heart

Love is easy, easy
When you’ve opened up your heart
Love is easy, easy
When you know you’ll never part

Well, love is easy, love is strange
Different people, different games
People, people, love a lot
Feel the love inside your heart

Love is, love is easy, said easy
When you’ve opened up your heart
Easy, easy
When you know you’ll never part

I said easy, c’mon easy
When you’ve opened up your heart
Yeah easy, easy
When you know you’ll never part

Said easy, easy
When you know you’re not alone
Easy, easy

Song For A Lost Friend

You had a dream
You know you dreamt so much
You had a dream
You know it meant so much

You’re just a victim of the circumstance
I mean, what else could you do?
You saw your dream and you just took a chance
And for a while your dream came true
What could you do?

You had a goal
You know you aimed so high
You had soul
You knew you had to try

You’re just a victim of the time of day
No matter what you say or do
You saw your dream and you just took a play
And for a while your dream came true
What could you do?
What could you do?

You’re just a victim of the circumstance
I mean, what else could you do?
You saw your dream and you just took a chance
And for a while your dream came true
What could you do?
What could you do?
What could you do?
What could you do?

 Why Don’t We Talk

(Why don’t we talk?)
Why don’t we talk about it? (Why don’t we talk?)
Why don’t we talk about it?
(Why don’t we, why don’t we, why don’t we?)

If you knew the way it feels
I know you’d try a little harder
We’ve been together now for too long to part

Why don’t we try (Why don’t we try?)
Why don’t we try (Why don’t we try?)
Why don’t we try (Why don’t we, why don’t we try?)
Just the one more time

If you could understand the way it is
Then we could talk about the difference between us
But who knows, baby, we might still agree

Why don’t we talk about it? (Why don’t we talk?)
Why don’t we talk about it? (Why not eat pork?)
Why don’t we talk about it? (Why don’t we, why don’t we talk?)
Just the one more time

Who knows, baby, we might still agree

Why don’t we talk about it? (Why don’t we talk?)
Why don’t we talk about it? (Why don’t we talk?)
Why don’t we talk about it?
(Why don’t we, why don’t we, why don’t we talk?)
(Why don’t we talk?)
(Why don’t we, why don’t we, why don’t we talk?).

Island

When I love you, do you feel it?
I know it makes you happy when I say “alright”
When I love you, do you feel it?

When I hold you, we’re an island
You know it makes me happy when you say “alright”
When I hold you, we’re an island

I know the road’s a hard one
But it’s easy when you’re not alone
So help me to remember, please
Lady, I believe we’ll get home

When I love you, do you feel it?
You know it makes me happy when you say “alright”
When I love you, do you feel it?

I know the road’s a hard one
But it’s easy when you’re not alone
So help me to remember, please
Lady, I believe we’ll get home

When I love you, do you feel it?
You know it makes me happy when you say “alright”
When I love you, we’re an island

I know the road’s a hard road
But it’s easy when you’re not alone

Help me to remember
Lady, I believe we’ll make it home, get home

Matted Spam

I feel a change comin’ on
A frame of mind that’s held me down for too long
Tried to imprison my soul
Locked me outside of my own Rock ‘N’ Roll

Can you feel it?
Oh yeah
Can you feel the change?
It’s coming
Feel it, oh yeah
Feel the change, it’s coming my way, yeah

I see a light from a night
A distant star, but it’s shining so bright
Guiding me out of myself
This new found love has got me under its spell

Can you see it?
Oh yeah
Can you see the light?
It’s coming
Can you see it?
Oh yeah
Can you see the light?
It’s coming today

For years and years, I’ve waited so long
I almost lost control
The days and nights all seemed to be wrong
Without you, little Miss Rock ‘N’ Roll

You know I tell you no lie
My little lady lift me up to the sky
She put the stomp on my blues
She blow the dust off my old blue suede shoes

Feel it, oh yeah
Can you feel the change?
It’s coming
Can you feel it?
Yeah
Can you feel the change?
It’s coming my way, yeah

Can you feel it?
Oh yeah
Can you feel the change?
It’s coming
Can you feel it?
Yeah
Can you feel the change?
It’s coming today

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Can’t feel it

Can you feel the light?
Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?
Can you see the light?

Where Do You Go From Here?

Someone gives you their heart
But you still throw it all away
Knowing the past is a part
Part of what you are today

We all know you had your troubles
We all know you had your days
What is love?
You can throw it all away
With the helplessness of your pride

Telling yourself you’re a loser
Like someone winning who’s not
Telling yourself you’re a loser
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?

Someone showed you the way
That you’ll be ready to see
That the game had been played
Losers had lost and the winners were free

We all know you have your troubles
We all know you have your ways
What is love?
You can throw it all away
With the helplessness of your pride

Telling yourself you’re a loser
Like someone winning who’s not
Telling yourself you’re a loser
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?

We all know you have your troubles
We all know you have your days
What is love?
You can throw it all away
With the helplessness of your pride
Telling yourself you’re a loser
Like someone winning who’s not
Telling yourself you’re a loser
Where do you go from here?
Where do you go from here?

My Heart Goes Out

I wanna tell you how much I need you now
I wanna show you what love can do
Can you take me like I am?
Loving you now can be sad
I can remember times we have had
And for you now, my heart goes out, once again

You turn me down, I wonder why
You turn away with sunken eyes
I see nothing but the best
I imagine all the rest coming true

I wanna touch you, I wanna be with you now
I wanna show you what love can do
I can take you like a man
Loving you now can be sad
I can remember times we have had
But for you now, my heart goes out, once again

You turn me down, I wonder why
You turn away with sunken eyes
I see nothing but the best
I imagine all the rest coming true

For you now, my heart goes out
For you now, my heart goes out, once again.

Lonely You

When I look into your tearful eyes
I don’t know what to do
And though you say that I don’t realize
I sympathize with you

Lonely you, only you
Yes I do
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you

When I ask you just to be my friend
I want to lend a hand
But if we get too close, it’s sure to end
Oh, can’t you understand?

Lonely you, only you
Yes it will
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you

We really need a friend
And friends are hard to find
And harder still to keep
Lonely you
Lonely me

Lonely you, only you
Yes it will
Lonely you, only you
Lonely you

Lonely you
Lonely you.

Give It Up

Live in hope of love and wait to die
Sadness all around us makes for crying
Feelings that once meant so much
Are left to dry and turn to dust, and ashes

We learn to wheel and deal and say goodbye
Madness all around us makes for dyin’
Young deceivers soon turn old
Are left to die amongst their gold and cashes

Give it up
Or we’ll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time
Give it up, your saviour’s in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)

We drive a million miles to see the sun
Hoping we are not too late for saving
The Lord will smile on you today
Give you love that you can trade
For matches, TVs, and movie stars
And driving cars is catching

Give it up
Or we’ll end on the rocks (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up, give yourself time (give it up)
Give it up, your saviour’s in shock (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)
Give it up (give it up)

(Give it up, give it up, give it up)
(Give it up, give it up, give it up)

Run out of money
Run outta good
Run outta reasons and misunderstood
Run out of rhythm
Run out of rhyme
Run out of feelings and run out of time

Living in limbo, hanging around
Head on the ceiling and mind in the clouds
Blind is the morning and deaf is the night
Comes without warning and leaves me in fright

Saving all my money, yeah, for the rainy days
I’m packin’ up my suitcase, make it pay

Run out of patience
And run out of lies
Run out of spaces and nowhere to hide
Living and loving is easy to get
Living is something we haven’t tried yet

Yeah, I’ve been saving all my money, yeah, for the rainy days
Well, I’m packin’ up my suitcase, make it pay

I run out of money
Run out of good
Run out of reasons and misunderstood
Run out of rhythm
Run out of rhyme
Run out of feelings and run out of time

Blind is the morning and deaf is the night
Comes without warning and leaves me in fright

I’ve been saving all my money, yeah, for the rainy days
I’m packin’ up my suitcase, make it pay.
