Maude: Zoos are full, prisons are overflowing. Ah, my! How the world still dearly loves a cage. Never had a dark thought Never felt a love rot I just work the nine to five That's all I do, and I'm alive And I never really dreamed of too much more Never seen a sad face Or thought much about the human race I just punch out and punch in And I'd do it all again And I never really dreamed of too much more And yet the world turns Though your soul, it burns You long to end these bitter wars And get the rich to feed the poor But I guess I never thought like that before Never wanted to run away From all the bills I have to pay I do my best to please the man Who signs my checks and ties my hands And I guess I never thought of too much more Never had to fight Or stand up for my own rights I guess I'm no protected class And I'm fine with kissing ass And I'm not real keen on doing too much more And yet the world turns Though your soul, it burns You long to end these bitter wars And get the rich to feed the poor But I guess I never thought like that before No I never really dreamed of too much more No I never really dreamed of too much more And I guess I never thought like that before

A.O. 03:51
I can feel your thoughts You go to the same place Head and heart of have-nots Fate brought me your crying face Strange dreams and telepathy I don't know where Where I would be I'm in your head You're in my heart I don't think I know where to start

Deathstar 03:45
All I want is to evade you But somehow I'm drawn to the dark side Every time life seems to fade You force me back for one more try You came on looking like a starman But then you burned completely black Felt you were my only hope and Now all that love I can't get back No more love No more war No more love No more war No more war No more war No more love No more love No more stars No more wars No more stars No more wars The trouble is, people get too attached to each other, things drag on... ...scenes, tears. Everything gets so maudlin. I think people should always behave as though they were between planes. Very sound, Mr. Flannagan. It's basic. He who loves and runs away, lives to love another day. - from Love In The Afternoon

Summer Lover 06:03
You've got a good thing going Someone there to hold you tight All the sparks and stars are showing And they'll even treat you right Then one day a wave comes crashing You see the dark you thought had died You look around and you start asking Convince yourself it was a lie Find another summer lover One to rest your dreams upon Til one day, you discover The days to live your dreams are gone Looking back, you realize It was only in your mind The damage done, love has died If you had only been more kind If you had only been more kind Find another summer lover One to rest your dreams upon Til one day, you discover The days to live your dreams are gone Maybe one day in your quest If they forgive what you have been They can overlook the rest And find your crazy heart again

Revolution 03:37
Til the war came We didn't know we wanted a revolution We didn't know about a solution Mr. Goldman I'm not asking for a contribution We didn't know about a solution Instead of shaking Wall Street hands How about we lift up our fellow man? How about that, Mr. Goldman? It could be time now To live for the weak Before we lay our flowers at their feet Til the war came We didn't know we wanted a revolution We didn't know about a solution Instead of shaking Wall Street hands How about we lift our fellow man? How about that, Mr. Goldman? Instead of shaking Wall Street hands How about we lift our fellow man? How about that, Mr. Goldman? How about that, Mr. Goldman?

Here comes that old flame And I'm feeling just the same Look at me now Moving on, I don't know how I've changed the name I've changed the tune But it's still the same song about you I've got a band now And we roll from town to town We break lots of hearts But it's still mine that's split apart I've changed my name I've changed the tune But it's still the same song about you You can't hide your love for me You know that would be wrong Just like I can't hide my love In a country song You can't hide your love for me You know that would be wrong Just like I can't hide my love In a country song

Crazy 02:23
You can say he's crazy And you've every right to But I know that he adores me And I won't put my love away for you Oh you can call it in But that won't change what's within My love and I Oh you can put him away But I'll wait every day For my guy

All I Want 04:18
Harold: Maude, do you pray? Maude: Pray, no. I communicate. Harold: With God? Maude: With life! Life, let it be Love, let it see You make a change Don't feel the pain You said you wanted to believe And that you wanted me to be All I want's a reason why Love keeps passing me on by
