strawberry fields in the afternoon my mood swings because I’m with you strawberry love on my mind I ain’t gonna lie I’m not here just to pass some time sun’s out on a blue sky and everything is alright I’m on the backseat of my mind just killing I’m on the backseat of my mind just killing time your sweet voice resounds in the valley of my desire I ain’t gonna lie I’m not here just to pass some time sun’s out on a blue sky and everything is alright I’m on the backseat of my mind just killing I’m on the backseat of my mind just killing time I’m just killing time

Lonely Night 03:45
I’m much to drunk telling all those lies took me in and out of love each and every time the barman got my car maybe I should quit the wine but out here in the darkest night it’s so hard to get by now I’m standing here tears in my eyes thought I was your lover but life went other ways it’s a lonely night the man at the table working nine to five he has got some money but not much left inside the girl behind the counter talking to the man she is from the country her mother cried in vain now I’m standing here tears in my eyes thought I was your lover but life went other ways it’s a lonely night
5.
you asked me where I’ve been but baby I don’t know must have been rambling somewhere far from where you go when you ask me what’s on my mind I don’t know what to say in and out of love we go it hurts in every way ain’t it hard we’re tearing down the house the house of love I ask you where we are but even you don’t know sometimes the hardest part is to just let go when you ask me what’s on my mind I don’t know what to say in and out of love we go it hurts in every way ain’t it hard we’re tearing down the house the house of love

I couldn’t see it for the longest time it was hiding right in front of my eyes now it’s so clear like the dew on a leaf I keep it as a treasure till the day I leave I couldn’t find it for such a very long time it was running from me every time now it’s so clear like the moonshine in a well I keep it as a treasure like the sweetest smell now it breaks my heart in two like no other thing in the world could do I couldn’t see it for the longest time it was hiding right in front of my eyes now it’s so clear like the dew on a leaf I keep it as a treasure till the day I leave now it breaks my heart in two like no other thing in the world could do
7.
come on down sit at my table have a glass of wine we can talk if you want me to if that’s what you want to do minutes pass, hours are fading you can see by the change of light we’re just silently sitting tears running from our eyes if that’s what you want to do if that’s what you want me to by the change of light it was written in your eyes you can’t say we never tried I’m sitting, longing for an answer dark shadows passing on the wall a thunder rolls in the distance skies are blue at the same time if that’s what you want to do if that’s what you want me to by the change of light it was written in your eyes you can’t say we never tried
8.
you love the sun when it’s going down you like staying up late and drinking wine on the back porch you love the stars when they’re out at night light some candles if you’re able lay your love out on the table that’s just how we like it best don’t you ever change a thing they say we might not have much time but we still got that state of mind I like it just the way it is but sometimes something’s on your mind whatever it is I just don’t seem to get it right maybe the weight of the world or just a stone in your shoe I’m to blind to see what caused it and I’m starting to get angry you say mean things on the way home don’t you ever change a thing they say we might not have much time but we still got that state of mind I like it just the way it is don’t count the hours don’t fall asleep there’s rain in our shoes but sun on our cheeks don’t you ever change a thing they say we might not have much time but we still got that state of mind I like it just the way it is
9.
the european union drowned its stars on a starless night out here in the waters right before our eyes people are dying the border stays closed the european union can’t be blackmailed don’t make us shoot you down how long right before our eyes right before our eyes there’s a man whistling deep down in the dungeons of downing street so many more in all the downing streets of the world we’re all equal before the law how long right before our eyes right before our eyes
10.
San Diego 04:30
got stuck in San Diego on the borderline it’s dark out on the road where they meet at night fences in the city walls up in their minds they’re tearing us apart like they did so many times hey there brother I need you with me now time goes by in a blink of an eye hey there lover come on love me like you did before I know times are hard and it sure does look like rain in the shallow water there’s a man from El Salvador he tried to make it to the promised land now lying face down in the Rio Grande fences in the city walls up in their minds they’re tearing us apart like they did so many times hey there brother I need you with me now time goes by in a blink of an eye hey there sister I’m calling wherever you may be I need you now more than ever and it’s you I’m calling you I need everybody lives for someone
11.
I’ve been waiting in the car on the backseat slouching on the couch in the hotel lobby the ice melts in my drink - negroni I take a sip and watch the bellboy slip what took you so long, baby what took you so, so long what took you so long, baby oh, what took you so long driving into the morning sun trying to get away from this sad old town we crisscross the country in Daniel’s old black buck what took you so long, baby what took you so, so long what took you so long, baby oh, what took you so long
