Lyrics: Ringo 2012 (2012)

 

Anthem

This is anthem, for peace and love
We've gotta keep trying, we can't give up
This is the day, no turning away, this is an anthem
You think you've got it covered, you say you know the score
But people are dying, there's no diniying
But do we do we know what for
we know we know we know we know it's true
we know we know we know we know what we've gotta do

This is anthem, of peace and love
We've gotta keep trying, we can't try enough
This is the day, no turning away, this is an anthem
It's not all mines and bullets it's from hunger too
But never say never
Lets get it together
we know we know we know we know it's true
we know we know we know we know what we've gotta do

we know we know we know we know it's true
we know we know we know we know what we've gotta do
This is anthem, of peace and love
We've gotta keep trying, we can't try enough
This is the day, no turning away, this is an anthem

No man ever made it on his own
no man ever made it all alone
we've gotta help out

This is anthem, of peace and love
This is anthem, of peace and love
This is anthem, of peace and love

Wings

If i had the wings of an eagle,
Over these broken dreams i will fly.
If i could be shot like an arrow.
Straight to you, in your arms i will lie.
Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i love you so?

If i had the strength of a lion,
There'd be no one to keep us apart.
And if i was to crack just like thunder,
I would shout what i feel in my heart.
Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i need you so?

Need you so much,
The melody's coming in clear. (so clear)
And with your touch,
The music keeps going around and around in my ears.

All right!

Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i need you so?

If i had to live life without you,
I'd be lost like a ship in the night.
Your love never gave me no warning,
Like a bird i was shot down in flight.
Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i love you so?

Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i need you so? (need you so)

Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i love you so?

Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i need you so? (need you so)

Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i love you so?

Don't you know i love you?
Don't you know i need you so? (need you so)

Think It Over

Think it over what you just said.
Think it over in your pretty little head.
Are you sure that I'm not the one?
Is your love real or only fun?
Think it over, just think it over.
My lonely heart grows cold and old.

Think it over and let me know.
Think it over and don't be slow.
Just remember all birds and bees
Go by two's through life's mysteries.
Think it over, yes just think it over.
My lonely heart grows cold and old.

[Chorus:]
Think it over (over and over).
Think it over (over and over).
Think it over (over and over).
Think it over (over and over).
Think it over, just think it over.
My lonely heart grows cold and old.

All right, all right.

Think it over and think of me.
Think it over and you will see
The happy day when you and I
Think as one and kiss the bkues goodbye.
Think it over, just think it over.
My lonely heart grows cold and old.

[Chorus 2x]

Samba

One step forward and two steps back
The crowd will roar and bones will crack
And you'll be Samba to me
And by the calm of the sea
You gave your promise to me

We go hand in hand
Backing up the band
Put things on the sand
Understand I love you

[Chorus:]
It's a rock 'n tumble, never give up
You've got the stuff
We've got enough
We are in love

Take two steps forward and two steps back
Two steps back

[Chorus]

It's a rock 'n tumble, never give up
Never give up, never give up

[Chorus 2x]

Rock Island Line

Now, this here's the story about the Rock Island line
Now, the Rock Island line is a railroad line
And it runs down into New Orleasn
And just outside of New Orleans is a big toll gate
And all the trains that go through the toll gate
Why, they gotta pay the man some money
Less of course, they got certain things on board
Then they okay, then they don't ever have to pay the man nothin'
And right now, we see a train
She's comin' on down the line
And when she got up here to the toll gate
The-a depot, he shout down to the driver
He want to know what he got on board
So he say a
What you got on board there, boy
And the driver, he sing right on back
Down to the depot agent
Tell him what he got on board
The got a way of singing

I got sheep, I got cows
I got horses, I got pigs
I got all livestock
I got all livestock
I got all livestock

And the man say, well, he say
Your alright there, boy
You don't have to pay me nothin'
Just get 'em on through
So the train go through the toll gate
And as it go through
It got up a little bit of steam
And a, a little bit of speed
And when he sees me
On the other side of the toll gate
They, the driver shout back
Down the line to the man
'Course you don't hear what he say now
But home down the Rock Island line

I fooled you, I fooled you
I got pig iron, I got pig iron
I got all pig iron

He said, tell you where I'm goin', boy
Goin' down the Rock Island line, yes, yes
She's a mighty good road
Oh well, the Rock Island line
She's a mighty good road
Rock Island line is the road to ride
Ya, the Rock Island line
Is a mighty good road
And if you want to ride
You gotta ride it
Like you find it
Get your ticket at the station
On the Rock Island line
Well, I may be right
I may be wrong
I know you're gonna miss me when I'm gone

Ya,the Rock Island line
She's a mighty good road

And if you want to ride

On the Rock Island line

A B C, W X Y Z
Cat's in the cupboard
But he don't see me

The good Lord's comin'
For to see me again

Step Lightly

Step lightly,
You're movin' too fast.
Take your time, boy,
Soon the pain will pass.
In the meantime,
You gotta find yourself a love
That's gonna last.

Step lightly,
Things will work out fine.
Nice and easy,
All it takes is time.
Please, believe me,
I wish this song was yours instead of mine.

Now don't be angry at what i'm telling you,
I'd be happy if you would see it too.
But in the meantime,
Find yourself a love that's true to you.

(ah -)
(sha la la)

But in the meantime, (meantime)
Find yourself a love that's gonna last.

Now I told you,
Things don't work out fast,
Gotta go now,
Let's forget the past.
But in the meantime, (in the meantime)
You gotta find yourself a love that's gonna last.
You gotta find yourself a love that's gonna last.
You gotta find yourself a love that's gonna last.

(in the meantime)
You gotta find a love that last.
(in the meantime)
You gotta find a love that last.

Wonderful

Some days are diamonds, some days are stone
Some days we need, to leave it alone
But when we look back, at how far we've come
We know we're in it, for the long run
The worst that ever was wonderful
Better than I ever dreamed
The worst that ever was wonderful
Cause it's always been you and me
And we made it through, the way we always do
Cause for me and you
The worst that ever was wonderful

Each time I see you, I feel the same
It always getts better, the more we can change
No expectations, no room for doubt
Theres never been troubles, we can't work out
The worst that ever was wonderful
Better than I ever dreamed
The worst that ever was wonderful
Cause it's always been you and me
And we made it through, the way we always do
Cause for me and you
The worst that ever was wonderful

Each time I see you, I feel the same
It always getts better, the more we can change
The worst that ever was wonderful
Better than I ever dreamed
The worst that ever was wonderful
Cause it's always been you and me
And we made it through, the way we always do
Cause for me and you
The worst that ever was wonderful

In Liverpool

When I was a kid in Liverpool
The rain never stopped
but the sun always shone in my mind, in Liverpool
The streets were long and wide
There were places we could hide in our mind
Walking to Sefton Park, and Its a beautiful day
But we should be going to school, but anyway

[Chorus:]
Me and boys, me and the gang
Living our fantasies
Breaking the rules, acting like fools
That's how it was for me
How was it for you?

At H. Hunt & son
In Liverpool
An apprentice engineer but
I had something very clear in my mind
Music was my goal in my heart
and in my soul and in my mind
Walking to the Iron Door on a beautiful night
Well, I knew I wanted more
It felt so right

[Chorus:]
Me and the girl, me and the band
Living our fantasies
Breaking the rules, acting like fools
That's how it was for me
How was it for you? [x6]

[Chorus x2]

Slow down

Face to the wind
My feet on the floor
Heading down the highway on the 104
Gotta get the lid out cant be late
In and out of traffic got no time to waste

Slow down, Slow down, Slow down!, Slow down

Calm Is good
When your mind is busy with woulda coulda should
You betta slow down
Check is in the mail but someone forgot the stamp
Trying to find some peace of mind and put it in the bank

Slow down, Slow down, Slow down, Slow down

Is good
When your mind is busy with woulda coulda should
You betta slow down
Slow down, Slow down, Slow down
