The last album of the golden decade. After that, Roger left the band. It was not a happy experience making this album, Roger living in north California and Rick living in Los Angeles, rest of the band moving from one place to another for the recording sessions, and even worst, having Rick and Roger opposing ideas about the future of the band. They tried to make the best album on their hands, according the situation, but they rejected some good songs, thinking on next albums, were might fit better. Songs like "Brother were you bound", "Had a dream" and "Only because of you" for exemple.

El último album de la decada dorada, tras el cual se separó la banda. No fué una experiencia feliz la grabación de este disco, Roger viviendo en el norte de California y Rick en los Angeles, con desplazamientos del resto de la banda a ambos estudios para realizar las grabaciones, y con ideas irreconciliables sobre la dirección a tomar. Se hizo un album de compromiso y se reservaron temas de Roger y Roger para próximos albumes en donde pudieran encajar mejor, como los temas "Brother were you bound", "Had a dream" u "Only because of you" por poner solo unos ejemplos.


CRAZY (Roger Hodgson)

Here's a little song to make you feel good
Put a little light in your day
These are crazy times
And it's all been getting pretty serious
Here's a little song to make you feel right
Send the blues away
Well it's a crazy game
Tell me who's to blame, I'm kind of curious.

Right if you win, wrong if you lose
Nobody listens when you're singing the blues
Well something's the matter, but nothing gets done
Oh everyone's waiting for a place in the sun
Well something is wrong now
Can something be wrong with me
Oh brother, why's it got to be so crazy...

Gimme little left, gimme little right
Gimme little black, gimme little white
Gimme little peace, gimme little hope
Gimme little light 'Cause you know it seems that the situation's getting serious.

Right if you win, wrong if you lose
Nobody listens when you're singing the blues
Well something's the matter, but nothing gets done
There's no use in waiting for a place in the sun 'Cause something is wrong now

Can something be wrong with me
Oh brother, why's it got to be so crazy...

Oh something is wrong with me
Oh brother, why's it got to be this crazy...


PUT ON YOUR OLD BROWN SHOES (Rick Davies)

Put on your old brown shoes
Right on your feet
Time to move on, get away
You know you paid your dues
Did all you could
Time to move on, no more to say

You and me, we're helpless can't you see
We've got to get away, get away
Got to move on, 'til the madness around is gone
And the rest of our lives we'll be free

Kick out the morning blues
Who needs a job
Who needs pain and oppression
You know it can't be beat
Stand on your own two feet
Goodbye rain and depression

You and me, we're helpless can't you see
We've got to get away, get away
Got to move on, catch the next train and we'll be gone
And the rest of our lives we'll be free

Get your blue jeans right on babe
Get your blue jeans right on babe
You know a friend is a friend
You don't leave him in trouble
He got a little drunk so now he's seeing double
Don't you see him there yeah lying in the rubble
But you have to lend a hand
'Cause you know he's on the level

You and me, we're helpless can't you see
We've got to get away, get away
Got to move on, catch the next train and we'll be gone
And the rest of our lives we'll be free


IT'S RAINING AGAIN (Roger Hodgson)

It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end.
Oh no, it's raining again and you know it's hard to pretend.
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend.

Oh no, it's raining again
Oh will my heart ever mend.

Oh no, it's raining again
You're old enough some people say
To read the signs and walk away


It's only time that heals the pain
And makes the sun come out again


It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end.
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend.

C'mon you little fighter
No need to get uptighter
C'mon you little fighter
And get back up again
Oh get back up again
Fill your heart again...


BONNIE (Rick Davies)

Your silver nights and golden days
I try to reach you in a million ways
I'm crazy 'bout you Bonnie Can you tell?
Your diamond rings and fancy clothes
Do I want you babe, well heaven knows
I'm wild about you Bonnie Can't you see

Hey Bonnie I've love you oh so long
I know we'd get along
Hey Bonnie will you ever notice me

Yes I know you oh so well
Just one look and I fell

Please tell me that our love will always be
I've seen your films and all your plays

I read about you every single day
I'd like to get my lovin' arms 'round you


KNOW WHO YOU ARE (Roger Hodgson)

Know who you are
There's a world wants to know you
Know where to go... There's a world wants to touch you
Feel all you can... Let your heart speak and guide you
Don't be afraid... Of the love deep inside you.

Bring it out for everyone
When you smile we can see the sun
Bring it out for all to hear
Because you've so much to give
And there's so much to know
But if you wait for your moment
Well, it may never show.

Know who you are...
There's a new song inside you.
Weep if you can...
Let the tears fall behind you.

Bring it out for everyone.
When you smile we can see the sun,
Sing it out for all to hear
Because you've so much to say
And you've so much to do
And everyone's waiting,
Yes, it's all up to you.

Know who you are...
There's a world deep inside you,
Trust me if you can...
There's a friend to guide you.


MY KIND OF LADY (Rick Davies)

Let me tell you what I want to say
You're the only one who can make me feel this way
My kind of lady
No better love could I embrace
No better heart, no other face
Can quite compare with you
You came along and then you mend my broken dreams
I was so down and then as foolish as it seems
You gave me your affection
Yeh baby you came through
We'll make it you'll see
In spite of those who say it's wrong
This time we feel that we belong
Now we can truly say
We'll be together and that's all we'll ever need
We'll love each other, that's the way it's gonna be
And nothin' under the sun of moon
Can make us be apart
Oh my honey
You know I'll love you every day
When things go wrong we'll find a way
I'm so glad I met you
Much more than I can ever say

We're making plans and holding hands just like before
We'll try again, we'll make amends along the road
It's fellin' good, just like it should, this time we know
We'll share each other's happiness for now and evermore
I've been wastin' my life away I've got a message for you today
To tell you that you are

My kind of lady
I'm not the same since I met you
All of my dreams had fallen through
And then you came along
One magic night when things went right it was so fine
Looked in your eyes and realized that you were mine
And nothin' under the sun of moon
Can make us be apart

Oh my baby
You know I'll love you all the way
When times get hard we'll smile and say
I'm so glad I met you
I'll love you more and more each day

We're making plans and holding hands just like before
We'll try again, we'll make amends along the road
It's fellin' good, just like it should, this time we know
We'll share eachother's happiness for now and evermore


C'EST LE BON (Roger Hodgson)

I never knew what a man was supposed to be
I never wanted the responsibility
I still remember what they tried to make of me
They used to wonder what they couldn't get through to me,
'Cauce all that I had as this music
A-coming to me
And all that I had was this rhythm
A-running through me.
I took a tip from the man in the ministry
He said, "My son, better work in the factory"
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the military
So lucky to have all this music
A-coming to me
I'm lucky to have all this rhythm
A-running through me

I'm watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I'm watching the marry-go-round
Go down about me.
I said, "Lovers, you're needed in the garden
'Cauce there's a lot of crazy people
Who've forgotten where their heart is
And they don't give a damn
About hurting those flowers and those trees."

C'est le bon, sailing on and on...

Sometimes I wonder where my life is taking me
Sometimes I wonder what they all expect of me
Well there were days I can tell you quite honestly
I saw myself winding up in the monastery
'Cauce all that I have is this music
A-coming to me
And all that I have is this rhythm
A-running through me

I'm watching the movie go down
Around, about me
I'm watching the marry-go-round
Go down about me.
I said, "Lovers, you're needed in the garden
'Cauce there's a lot of crazy people
Who've forgotten where their heart is
And they don't give a damn
About hurting that small child in me."

C'est le bon, sailing on and on...


WAITING SO LONG (Rick Davies)

Did you get all you want?
Did you see the whole show?
So where's all the fun
That we used to know?
As the memories fade
Way out of view
I'd love those old days
To come back to you
I've been waiting so long
I'm not feeling so strong

Did you say what you mean?
Did you mean what you say?
About this new scene
Is it really that way?
But the blindness goes on
You say it's not so
But what do you know?

I've been waiting so long
I'm not feeling so strong

Ain't nothing new, it's just the same old thing
You got me singing those old blues again
Angry music, words of fire
Painted faces filled with rage
Even then they sound so tired
I must be set in my old ways
If this world is unimpressive
It's been that way for quite a while
I don't need no heavy message
Just turn me on and make me smile

Yes I've been waiting such a long time
Just for something to ring true
Now I'd rather taste the old wine
Than mess around with something new

And the blindness goes on

The blindness goes on


DON'T LEAVE ME NOW (Roger Hodgson)

Don't leave me now
Leave me out in the pouring rain
With my back against the wall
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Leave me out with nowhere to go
And the shadows start to fall
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me now
Leave me out on this lonely road
As the wind begins to howl
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me now
All alone on this darkest night
Feeling old and cold and grey
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me now
Leave me holding an empty heart
As the curtain starts to fall
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me now
All alone in this crazy world
When I'm old and cold and grey and time is gone...
