1977 Adam Again

AIN’T YOU GLAD

 

I saw you the first time,

In the pouring rain.

You charmed me, you disarmed me,

And you eased my pain.

Now when the rain falls,

It’s like God calls – And he says your name

 

Oh ain’t you glad that our love, is here to stay.

Ain’t you glad there are oh so many ways.

To show you just how much I care.

I will always be there cause I love you.

Yes, I love you.

 

I woke up this morning,

And the sun was so high.

My heart knew as I saw you

Lying by my side,

That the real light brought in my life,

Was from your eyes.

 

Oh ain’t you glad that our love, is here to stay.

Ain’t you glad there are oh so many ways.

To show you just how much I care.

I will always be there cause I love you.

Yes, I love you.

 

Oh, ain’t you glad our love is here to stay.

Ain’t you glad it grows stronger every day.

NO MATTER WHAT SHAPE YOU’RE IN

 

No matter what , what kind of shape you’re in,

When the time is right and you’re turning back.

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in,

And they can’t be dried – all the tears you’ve cried.

 

I’ll be loving you just like I always have before,

And when you walk through my door,

Ain’t no one gonna love you more.

 

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in,

When you’re up for love and it lets you down.

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in,

And you’ve rearranged your life and tried to change

 

I’ll be waiting here for as long as it takes for you to see,

That it’s you that I want.

And no matter what you think you should be,

Can’t you see that.

 

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in,

When you’re holding on and you start to fall.

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in,

When there’s nothing left cause you’ve done it all.

 

You can count on me,

Count on me.

I’ll always be there,

Everywhere.

 

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in.

When the time is right and you’re turning back.

No matter what, what kind of shape you’re in.

You can come back to me for the love you need.

SEE THIS HOUSE

 

See this house I’ve built.

It stands so strong,

It took so long.

 

Placed so high on this hill.

No one sees in,

They never will.

 

Board by board I willed the walls into place,

And the roof went on with my dreams.

As nice as it is on the outside,

You know it’s still not all what it seems.

 

Inside it’s all run down.

Lonely and bare,

Dark everywhere.

 

Confusion all around.

Things to be sold.

Love to be found.

 

Down the hall, that room’s been locked up for years.

And neglect has misplaced the key.

It’s full of memories I bought for a price,

At a time when nothing came free.

 

But you…….

Opened the door.

And there was light like there’s never been before.

Then you……

 

Gave me the key.

And there was love there to set me free and

Until you……..

I was like sand,

Blown out of hand

 

See this house I’ve built.

It stands so strong,

It took so long.

 

Inside it’s been made new.

It’s all I have.

It’s all for you.

.

WHACHERSIGN

 

I think I fell in love with you just a moment ago,

But how can I be sure unless the stars tell me so.

No need to give me details on what you’re all about,

Cause when I know our sign I’ll have you all figured out.

 

Whachersign. Whachersign.

If you’ll be mine, tell me whachersign.

 

If you’re a Pisces or a Libra this is where it all ends.

Or if you’re ruled by Mercury I’m afraid we can’t be friends.

What a shame if we’re not compatible,

Cause I like you so much.

To think we might miss true love by a week or a month.

 

Whachersign, Whachersign.

It would be so fine to know, Whachersign.

 

Are you Aquarius or Capricorn?

Or Hospital Zone – Please Don’t Blow Your Horn?

The stars say you should like me a lot.

I can’t understand why you do not.

 

But if you ever change your mind,

Please hurry up and say the word.

Before Saturn in my second house,

Squares Pluto in my third.

But when Jupiter goes retrograde,

And falls out of the sky,

And lands inside my seventh house,

I’m gonna be a better guy.

 

Whachersign, Whachersign

Whachersign, Tell me whachersign.

ANNIE THE POET

 

I don’t want to hear about your conquests,

Or your casual affairs,

Each one a great new story,

But who cares.

 

I want to know about your feelings,

Or the ache in your heart.

The thoughts that make you what you are,

That set you apart.

Cause Maybe I’ve had them too.

 

I come to where you’re playing often,

And you know why I do?

Cause maybe you will sing about,

What I have felt too.

Of things I’ve never told a soul,

Because of my pride.

And long time fears that keep it hidden,

Way down inside.

And I’ll know what you mean.

 

Chorus 1:

And I’ll say,

Go hear Annie the Poet.

She sings of something she’s lost.

Mistakes that were made in her childhood.

And the price that they’ve cost.

Well, I have lost that too.

 

Chorus 2:

And I’ll say,

Go see Annie the Poet.

She sings of something she’s found.

I don’t see that in my own life,

When I look around.

I want to find that too.

I want to find that too.

 

The rich man hears the word of truth and doesn’t care,

The poor man sees his prospects scattered everywhere.

I’m a poor man, looking to get rich upon your words,

So lift my heavy spirit with the truth you’ve heard.

And I’ll know what you mean.

 

Chorus 1

Chorus 2

TELOS SUITE

ALIVE AND WELL

 

I’m alive and well and living in L.A.

Or in anyone’s heart who wants to listen to my ways.

Got a million faces I want to let you see.

You can share in all I have if you open up to me.

 

I’m alive and well and living in L.A.

Or in anyone’s heart who wants to listen to my ways.

If you want to think that I wear a red suit that’s fine.

But the true is I wear whatever suits me all the time.

 

I will sing for you

I will play for you

Anything you’re open to.

 

Some will say I lie,

Some will call me thief,

I’ll destroy them when I’m through.

 

I intend to regain everything that I’ve lost.

Just wait and see,

Just wait and see.

I’m going to get what’s coming to me.

 

I’m alive and well and living in L.A.

Or in anyone’s heart who wants to call me by my name.

There are those who never heard about my fall.

So they will never know to call me anything at all.

 

I can take you high,

I can bring you down,

Any place you want to go.

 

Come and see the world.

I can show you more,

Than you’ll ever want to know.

 

I’m alive and well, I’m alive and well, I’m alive…..

I’m alive and well and I’m living in L.A.

Or in anyone’s heart who wants to listen to my ways.

Got a million faces I want to let you see.

And my time is running out so won’t you open up to me.

TELOS SUITE

ADAM AGAIN

 

She hangs up the phone,

And she sits there all alone.

No, he’s not coming home again tonight

 

Can it really be true,

All the work he has to do.

You know, somehow it doesn’t seem right.

 

She knows the feelings are fading away,

But nothing is said when there’s nothing to say.

Life in the Garden was never this way.

Can we ever be Adam again.

 

He parks his car,

Where the local taverns are,

And he carries out his search for something more.

 

What harm could it do,

Just a little lie or two,

And we’ll go on as always before.

 

Home late, he mumbles of traffic and rain,

She smiles at him as she covers her pain,

We had so much, now so little remains.

Can we ever be Adam again.

 

Each day that passes is just like before.

No one confesses what their feelings are.

They say “that’s life and you can’t expect much more.”

We can never be Adam again.

 

They never knew,

That love could be made new,

And the good things of life don’t have to end.

 

The Last Adam came,

To give love a name,

And a way to be Adam again,

And a way to be Adam again.

HERE HE COMES

 

Here He comes.

Here He comes for the last time.

Through the smog,

Here He comes for the last time.

 

Clear as the lightning flies out of the east sky,

Quick as a thief in the night.

 

Here He comes,

He will come for the last time.

Through the clouds,

He will come for the last time.

 

I’ll be here

I’ll be waiting

I’ll be here

I’ll be waiting

 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to tell you,

How to run your life.

But I believe the end is near.

What will you do if I’m right?

 

Carry On,

Carry on until it’s time.

Through the fire, every heart will be refined.

 

One will be watching and one will be sleeping,

One will be taken away.

 

Play your song,

Play it till it’s number one.

Through the night,

Play your song until it’s done.

 

Here He comes,

Here He comes for the last time.

See the signs,

Here He comes for the last time.

 

No one is better at keeping a promise,

What if he keeps it today.

 

He will come.

He will come for the last time.

Through the tears. He will come for the last time.

 

I’ll go up,

I’ll go up with Him.

I’ll go up,

I’ll go up with Him.

 

Go right ahead and do what they tell you,

Throw your seed to the wind.

But when your garden doesn’t grow,

Who will you turn to then?

 

Here He comes,

Here He comes for the last time.

Drink His Wine,

Mend your faith until it shines.

 

Sing your song,

Sing your song until it’s done.

Plant your hope,

Keep it growing toward the Son.

 

We’ll be here

We’ll be waiting

We’ll be here

We’ll be waiting here.
