Lyrics ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT,
DO YOU MISS ME TONIGHT,
ARE YOU SORRY
WE DRIFTED APART?
DOES YOUR MEMORY STRAY
TO A BRIGHT SUMMER DAY,
WHEN I KISSED YOU
AND CALLED YOU SWEETHEART?
DO THE CHAIRS
IN YOUR PARLOR
SEEM EMPTY AND BARE?
DO YOU GAZE
AT YOUR DOORSTEP
AND PICTURE ME THERE?
IS YOUR HEART
FILLED WITH PAIN?
SHALL I COME BACK
AGAIN?
TELL ME, DEAR,
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?

Lyrics [verse 1]:
WISH I WAS
AN APPLE,
DANGLING
FROM A TREE,
EVERY TIME
YOU'D PASS
ME BY,
YOU'D TAKE
A BITE
OF ME.
I WISH I WAS
A BLUEBIRD,
I'D NEVER
FLY AWAY,
I'D SIT UPON
YOUR SHOULDER,
BABY,
AND SING TO YOU
ALL DAY.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

[verse 2]:
I WROTE IT
IN A LETTER,
CARVED IT
ON A TREE,
TOLD IT
TO A HONEYCOMB,
WHO TOLD IT
TO A BEE.
I TOLD THEM
HAT I LOVED YOU,
THEY ALL KNOW
IT'S TRUE,
I'LL SAY IT
TILL THE COWS
COME HOME,
UNTIL IT GETS
TO YOU.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

[bridge]:
NEED YOU
IN THE MORNIN'
TO START
THE COFFEE POT,
NEED YOU
IN THE AFTERNOON,
TO FAN ME
WHEN I'M HOT.
NEED YOU
IN THE EVENIN'
WHEN SUPPER TIME
IS THROUGH,
WHAT I'M REALLY
TRYIN' TO SAY
IS I CAN'T GET ENOUGH
OF YOU.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

[verse 3]:
IF I WERE
A MUSICIAN,
I'D HARP
ON JUST ONE THING:
YOU SHOULD NEVER
PLAY MY HEART
THE WAY
YOU PLUCK A STRING.
IF ONLY
YOU WOULD LOVE ME,
SINCERELY TELL ME SO,
I'D BEAT THE DRUMS
ABOUT IT,
BABY,
TO HAVE THE WHOLE WORLD
KNOW.

[Chorus]:
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME,
CINDY, CINDY,
COME ON HOME
TO ME.

Lyrics I FORGOT TO REMEMBER
TO FORGET HER.
I CAN'T SEEM
TO GET HER OFF MY MIND.
I THOUGHT I'D NEVER MISS HER
BUT I'VE FOUND OUT SOMEHOW,
I THINK ABOUT HER
ALMOST ALL THE TIME.

THE DAY SHE WENT AWAY
I MADE MYSELF A PROMISE,
THAT I'D SOON FORGET WE EVER MET.
BUT SOMETHING SURE IS WRONG,
'CAUSE I'M SO BLUE AND LONELY
I FORGOT TO REMEMBER TO FORGET.

WHEN I'M CUDDLED UP
DANCING WITH ANOTHER,
SOFT MUSIC AND ROMANCE
FILL THE AIR.
I THINK I'M UP IN HEAVEN,
BUT BEFORE THE DANCE IS THROUGH,
I FIND MYSELF PRETENDING
THAT SHE'S THERE.

THE DAY SHE WENT AWAY
I MADE MYSELF A PROMISE,
THAT I'D SOON FORGET WE EVER MET.
BUT SOMETHING SURE IS WRONG,
'CAUSE I'M SO BLUE AND LONELY
I FORGOT TO REMEMBER TO FORGET.

Lyrics I KNOW YOURE A LONELY WOMAN
AND I LOVE YOU,
SOMEONE ELSE IS WAITING
AND HE OWNS YOU.
IF HE SHOULD EVER WAKE UP,
BE SURE
YOUR STORY IS STRAIGHT UP.

IF YOU TALK IN YOUR SLEEP,
DONT MENTION MY NAME.
AND IF YOU WALK IN YOUR SLEEP,
FORGET WHERE YOU CAME.

WALKING EVERY NIGHT
HERE IN THE SHADOWS,
SO AFRAID
THAT SOMETIME
HE MAY FOLLOW.
THERES ALWAYS A CHANCE
HELL FIND US,
SO I DONT NEED
TO REMIND US.

IF YOU TALK IN YOUR SLEEP,
DONT MENTION MY NAME.
AND IF YOU WALK IN YOUR SLEEP,
FORGET WHERE YOU CAME.

LOVE IS SO MUCH SWEETER
WHEN ITS BORROWED,
BUT ILL FEEL A LITTLE EASIER
TOMORROW.
DONT GIVE OUR SECRET AWAY,
BE CAREFUL
WHAT YOU SAY.

IF YOU TALK IN YOUR SLEEP,
DONT MENTION MY NAME.
AND IF YOU WALK IN YOUR SLEEP,
FORGET WHERE YOU CAME.

Fade:
FORGET WHERE YOU CAME, NOW,
FORGET WHERE YOU CAME.
DONT MENTION MY NAME,
DONT MENTION MY NAME,.
FORGET WHERE YOU CAME.

Lyrics WELL IF YOU TELL A LIE,
YOU KNOW
THAT I'LL FORGIVE YOU,
THOUGH YOU SAY
OUR LOVE
IS JUST A GAME.
AND WHEN
YOU HEAR MY NAME,
YOU'LL SAY
I'M FROM A STRANGE WORLD,
BUT IS IT SO STRANGE
TO BE IN LOVE WITH YOU?
IS IT SO STRANGE
THAT I LOVE YOU
MORE THAN ALL THE WORLD?
IS IT SO STRANGE
I HAVE NO EYES
FOR ANY OTHER GIRL?
OH WON'T YOU TAKE ME BACK
AND SAY
THAT YOU STILL LOVE ME;
TO WASTE
A LOVE LIKE OURS
WOULD BE A SIN.
LET US KISS AGAIN,
LET ME HOLD YOU NEAR
AND TAKE ME
FROM THIS STRANGE WORLD
I'M LIVING IN.
IS IT SO STRANGE
TO BE SO LONELY
SINCE YOU WENT AWAY?
IS IT SO STRANGE
THAT TEAR DROPS FALL
EACH TIME
I HEAR YOUR NAME?
OH WON'T YOU TAKE ME BACK
AND SAY
THAT YOU STILL LOVE ME;
TO WASTE
A LOVE LIKE OURS
WOULD BE A SIN.
LET US KISS AGAIN,
LET ME HOLD YOU NEAR
AND TAKE ME
FROM THIS STRANGE WORLD
I'M LIVING IN.

Lyrics WELL,
I DON'T WANT MUCH,
JUST WANT A LITTLE BIT.
DON'T WANT MUCH,
NO,
JUST WANT A LITTLE BIT.
I WANT A LITTLE BITTY
ITTY-BITTY
JUST A LITTLE BIT
OF YOUR LOVE.

EARLY IN THE MORNING,
JUST A LITTLE BIT.
LATE IN THE EVENING,

OF YOUR LOVE.

Lyrics I USED TO LAUGH
WHEN I SHOULD CRY,
I USED TO LET THESE FEELINGS
PASS ME BY.
BUT NOW THAT I BELIEVE THEM
IVE GOT NO ONE
TO LEAD THEM TO ME,
YOU SEE,
IVE TRADED LOVE
FOR WHAT I THOUGHT
WAS BEING FREE...

SO I CONFESS
A LONELINESS,
AND I GUESS
IVE LOST THE BEST
OF THE YEAR
THAT I HAD LOST.
SLIPPED MY FINGERS
LIKE A GOLDEN BREATH
OF AIR,
IF I CARED,
I WOULDNT BE SINGING
THIS LOVE SONG OF THE YEAR.

I KNOW THAT TIME
CANNOT ERASE THE DAY,
LOVE HAS PASSED
AND IVE GONE AWAY.
FROM NOW ON
ILL MAKE IT VERY CLEAR,
BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO WRITE
ANOTHER LOVE SONG OF THE YEAR.

ITS A LONELY SONG
AND NOT TOO CLEAR,
BUT TO ME
ITS VERY DEAR.
I GUESS THIS SONG
COULD ONLY BE
MY FEELINGS
WITHOUT AN ENDLESS SEA OF LOVE,
THIS HAS GOT TO BE
THE LOVE SONG OF THE YEAR.

I KNOW THAT TIME
CANNOT ERASE THE DAY,
LOVE HAS PASSED
AND IVE GONE AWAY.
FROM NOW ON
ILL MAKE IT VERY CLEAR,
BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO WRITE
ANOTHER LOVE SONG OF THE YEAR.

Lyrics HERES ANOTHER DIME FOR YOU,
MISTER SONGMAN,
SING THE LONELINESS
OF BROKEN DREAMS AWAY.
IF YOU CAN GUESS
ITS ONLY ME AND YOU,
MISTER SONGMAN,
TAKE AWAY THE NIGHT,
SING AWAY MY HURT,
MISTER SONGMAN.

IN YOUR IVORY COVERED PALACE,
SAFE BEHIND YOUR WALLS
OF GLASS,
YOU KEEP STARING
BACK AT ME
LIKE A MEMORY
FROM THE PAST.
WONT YOU SING ME AWAY
TO A SUMMER NIGHT,
LET ME HOLD HER
IN MY ARMS AGAIN.
I KNOW MEMORY
IS NOT RE-L:IVING,
BUT AT LEAST
ITS NOT THE END.

HERES ANOTHER DIME FOR YOU,
MISTER SONGMAN,
SING THE LONELINESS
OF BROKEN DREAMS AWAY.
IF YOU CAN GUESS
ITS ONLY ME AND YOU,
MISTER SONGMAN,
TAKE AWAY THE NIGHT,
SING AWAY MY HURT,
MISTER SONGMAN.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
THE WAY SHE MOVES
HER HIPS
UP TO HER FINGERTIPS,
I FEEL I'M HEAVEN BOUND.
AND WHEN SHE STARTS
TO SWAY,
I'VE GOTTA SAY,
SHE REALLY MOVES
THE GRASS AROUND.

[Chorus]:
ROCK A-HULA BABY,
ROCK A-HULA BABY.
GOT A HULA LULU
FROM HONOLULU,
THAT ROCK-A-HULA BABY
OF MINE.

[verse 2]:
ALTHOUGH I LOVE TO KISS
MY LITTLE HULA MISS,
I NEVER GET THE CHANCE.
I WANNA HOLD HER TIGHT
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT,
BUT ALL SHE WANTS TO DO
IS DANCE.

[Chorus]:
ROCK A-HULA BABY,
ROCK A-HULA BABY.
GOT A HULA LULU
FROM HONOLULU,
THAT ROCK-A-HULA BABY
OF MINE.

[verse 3]:
I BET THAT SHE COULD TEACH
THE PALMS ALONG THE BEACH
TO SWAY WHEN BREEZES BLOW.
AND BIRDS UP IN THE SKY
COULD LEARN TO FLY
BY WATCHIN' HOW
MY BABY CAN GO.

[Chorus]:
ROCK A-HULA BABY,
ROCK A-HULA BABY.
GOT A HULA LULU
FROM HONOLULU,
THAT ROCK-A-HULA BABY
OF MINE.

Lyrics SOLDIER BOY,
WHY FEEL BLUE?
DON'T YOU BELIEVE
THAT SHE
WILL BE TRUE?
IT'S WRITTEN
IN THE BLUE
THAT SHE
WAS MEANT
FOR ONLY YOU.
SOLDIER BOY,
TELL ME
WHY DO YOU CRY?
WHEN YOU RETURN
SHE'LL RUSH
TO YOUR SIDE.
IT'S WRITTEN
IN THE BLUE
THAT SHE
WAS MEANT
FOR ONLY YOU.

SO PROVE YOUR LOVE
IS TRUE,
SHE'LL BE THERE
TO SAY I DO.
AND SHE'LL GO
BY SEA
OR LAND
TO MAKE YOU
UNDERSTAND.

WHILE YOU'RE GONE,
OH TRY TO BELIEVE

Alt. Title (I Never Stopped) Thinking About You

Writers Tim Baty

Genres Country, Pop

Recorded 1973

Lyrics WOKE UP THIS MORNING
AND I TRIED TO CALL YOU,
YOU WERE NOT THERE,
KIND OF PUT ME IN DESPAIR.
SO I THOUGHT
JUST MAYBE
I COULD LOSE MY MIND
IN THE COUNTRYSIDE,
SO I WENT FOR A DRIVE.

BUT I NEVER
STOPPED THINKING ABOUT YOU,
FOUND MYSELF
WISHING YOU WERE THERE
JUST TO BE WITH ME
FEEL THE BREEZE,
THE SUN SMILES,
I DIDNT CARE.

I DECIDED TO TRY
JUST ONE MORE TIME
TO LET YOU KNOW
I REALLY LOVE YOU SO.
BEFORE I ARRIVED
I SAW YOU GO AWAY
WITH ANOTHER GUY,
A TEAR FILLED MY EYE.

AND I NEVER
STOPPED THINKING ABOUT YOU,
FOUND MYSELF
WISHING YOU WERE THERE
JUST TO BE WITH ME
FEEL THE BREEZE,
THE SUN SMILES,
I DIDNT CARE.

LONG TIME HAS PASSED
SINCE THE DAY I CRIED,
LIFE IS MINE
AND IM DOING FINE.
WHEN IM AT HOME
AND I FEEL ALONE,
WELL, I THINK OF YOU
AND TRY
TO GET A MESSAGE THROUGH.

BECAUSE I NEVER
STOPPED THINKING ABOUT YOU,
FOUND MYSELF
WISHING YOU WERE THERE
JUST TO BE WITH ME
FEEL THE BREEZE,
THE SUN SMILES,
I DIDNT CARE.
