After The Goldrush Lyrics

After The Goldrush Lyrics
After The Goldrush (1970)

TELL ME WHY

Sailing heartships through broken harbours
Out on the waves in the night
Still the searcher must ride the dark horse
Racing alone in his fright. 
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself, 
When you're old enough to repay but young enough to sell?

Tell me lies later, come and see me
I'll be around for a while.
I am lonely but you can free me
All in the way that you smile.


AFTER THE GOLDRUSH

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armour coming, sayin' something about a queen.
There were passants singin' and drummers drummin' and the archer split the tree. 
There's a fanfare blowin' to the sun that was floating on the breeze. 
Look at Mother Nature on the run in the nineteen seventies. 
Look at Mother Nature on the run in the nineteen seventies.

I was lyin' in a burned out basement with the full moon in my eyes.
I was hopin' for replacement when the sun burst through the sky.
There was a band playin' in my head and I felt like getting high. 
I was thinkin' about what a friend had said I was hopin' it was a lie. 
Thinkin' about what a friend had said I was hopin' it was a lie.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flyin' in the yellow haze of the sun, 
there were children cryin' and colours flyin' all around the chosen ones 
All in a dream, all in a dream the loading had begun. 
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home in the sun. 
Flying Mother Nature's silver seed to a new home.


ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART

When you were young and on your own 
How did it feel to be alone? 
I was always thinking of games that I was playing. 
Trying to make the best of my time.

But only love can break your heart 
Try to be sure right from the start 
Yes only love can break your heart 
What if your world should fall apart?

I have a friend I've never seen 
He hides his head inside a dream 
Someone should call him and see 
If he can come out. 
Try to lose the down that he's found.


SOUTHERN MAN

Southern man better keep your head 
Don't forget what your good book said 
Southern change gonna come at last 
Now your crosses are burning fast Southern man

I saw cotton and I saw black 
Tall white mansions and little shacks 
Southern man when will you pay them back? 
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking How long? How long?

Lily Belle, your hair is golden brown 
I've seen your black man comin' round 
Swear by God I'm gonna cut him down! 
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking How long? How long?


TILL THE MORNING COMES

I'm gonna give you till the morning comes 
I'm only waiting till the morning comes.


OH, LONESOME ME

Everybody's going out and having fun 
I'm a fool for staying home and having none. 
I can't get over how she set me free. Oh, lonesome me.

There must be some way that I can lose these lonesome blues 
Forget about my past and find someone new 
I've thought of everything from A to Z Oh, lonesome me.

I'll bet she's not like me. 
She's out and fancy free, 
Flirting with the boys with all her charms 
But I still love her so, 
And brother don't you know 
I'd welcome her right back here in my arms.


DON'T LET IT BRING YOU DOWN

Old man lying by the side of the road 
With the lorries rolling by, 
Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load 
And the building scrape the sky, 
Cold wind ripping down the allay at dawn 
And the morning paper flies, 
Dead man lying by the side of the road 
With the daylight in his eyes, 
Don't let it bring you down - it's only castles burning, 
Find someone who's turning and you will come around.

Blind man running through the light of the night 
With an answer in his hand, 
Come on down to the river of sight 
And you can really understand, 
Red lights flashing through the window in the rain, 
Can you hear the sirens moan? 
White cane lying in a gutter in the lane, 
If you're walking home alone, 
Don't let it bring you down - it's only castles burning, 
Just find someone who's turning and you will come around.



BIRDS

Lover, there will be another one 
Who'll hover over you beneath the sun 
Tomorrow see the things that never come 
Today

When you see me 
Fly away without you 
Shadow on the things you know 
Feathers fall around you 
And show you the way to go 
It's over, it's over.

Nestled in your wings my little one 
Is special morning brings another sun 
Tomorrow see the things that never come 
Today


WHEN YOU DANCE I CAN REALLY LOVE

When you dance, do your senses tingle? 
Then take a chance? 
In a trance, while the lonely mingle with circumstance?

I've got something to tell you you make it show. 
Baby come over, I know you know 
When you dance I can really love.

I can love, I can really love, I can really love 
Like a mountain that's growing a river that rolls 
Baby come over, I know you know.


I BELIEVE IN YOU

Now that you found yourself losing your mind are you here again? 
Finding that what you once thought is real is gone, and changing?

Now that you made yourself love me 
Do you think I can change it in a day? 
How can I place you above me? 
Am I lieing to you when I say 
That I believe in you?

Coming to you at night I see my questions I feel my doubts 
Whishing that maybe in a year or two we could laugh and let it all out.


CRIPPLE CREEK FERRY

All alone the captain stands 
Hasn't heard from his deck hands. 
The gambler tips his hat and walks towards the door. 
It's the second half of the cruise. 
And do you know he hates to lose.

Hey, hey cripple creek ferry 
Bulling through the overhanging trees 
Make way for the Cripple Creek ferry 
The waters going down it's a mighty tight squeeze.
