5)   keep this poor boy shinin' on


Open up your heart
Let me stay awhile
It's the only home that i've got now.

Let me feel your arms around me
Let me see you smile
Even tho' I can't give you a lot now.

When the light comes shinin' through
I'll be ready to roll again
Till then, while it looks like rain
I'm gonna stay indoors with you

Till then, won't you
Keep this poor boy [ keepin' on ]
Keep this poor boy
You can keep this poor boy
Shinin' on.

Just because i'm down and lonely
I might say that I love you only
But I would not lie to make you mine.

And you know that you can't hold me
with chains or Valentines
But I know that you're not gonna waste my time.

Everything that's in my heart
Will be at your command
I've got no one to save it for
I'm goin' to put it right down
In your little hand.

So won't you
Keep this poor boy [ keepin' on ]
Keep this poor boy
You can keep this poor boy
Shinin' on.

I think I can make it
But I need you now
I think I can make it
But I need you now.......




6)   sit down, stranger  -                                         


Sit down stranger and rest yourself
Just for a while.
Lord knows that life is long
There's many, many a lonely mile
Many a lonely mile.

We can talk and make sweet love
While the moon is shinin' bright
So sit down, stranger and rest yourself
No need to travel any more tonight,
To travel any more tonight.

If when you get up to go
A tear shines in my eye
Never take a second look
It's just a trick played by the light,
A trick played by the light.

But if you should turn again
And the tear still brightly gleams.
The give me just just one more sweet kiss
To lay to rest my foolish dreams,   ( to chase away my foolish dreams )
To lay to rest my dreams.
