Life Is What It Is – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Life Is What It Is

Why do we have to go and face the same routine
And the traffic jams and crowded street’s a real
Neurotic scene
I don’t know, why do we take it each day, yeah
Why does my girl tell me she’s got to
Have her way
Out all night, come home to fight
What am I to say
I don’t know, why do we take it each day
Life is what it is
Who wants to try not to believe
That’s the way it is
Oh, oh
I don’t know why what you feel inside
Days go on
Love is something that you just can’t hide
If it’s wrong
Then you’ll want to know, you don’t know why
I sing a song
And it helps me yet I’ll get by
At times
Lost in time sometimes your mind unwinds
Sun does shine
But no pleasure from your beauty’s mine
Like champagne wine
A bitter taste that’s so refined
Life it’s fine
You always pay for what’s behind
Why do I have to go and face the same routine
And the traffic jams and crowded street’s a real
Neurotic scene
I don’t know, why do we take it each day, yeah
Life is what it is
Who wants to try not to believe
That’s the way it is

Byblos – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Byblos

I saw her once before; she didn’t turn me on.
One night she stopped to talk to pass the time.
And then I saw her eyes; her softly smiling glow,
We sat and talked all night at Byblos.
She talked of feelings that I knew were true.
She painted me a picture using ev’ry shade of blue
It was light with laughter, At times it made me cry,
And now I’ll never know just why I didn’t ever try to hold her;
to squeeze her; to kiss her all night long, I never tried to please her.
Then, soon she had to go;
I sat there all alone
And thought of things she said
The whole day through.
And then I realized,
I never took the time
To find out where she lived
Or where to call.
I thought that I would see
Her the next night,
Anticipating how I’d set myself right.
Then, I went back to Byblos;
I sat there and waited,
Feeling just a little nervous
And a little frustrated.
Then, soon, in she came, looking just the same
Oo, I could hardly wait to take her far from the game.
Then a person came in to the club
that I had to speak to
I explained the situation to her
And i thought she understood
But I guess she thought I was jiving her around
Cause when I looked for her, this is what I found
She was rapping with a real good friend of mine,
He was happening, I guess it was his time.
I really couldn’t blame him, cause he was sad and lonely too.
But just talking to her did me so much good, I knew she’d do him good too.
Then I went home and I got it on,
Sat down to write these words when I was finally alone.
And then, about halfway through I wondered if someone knew
where she was, so I could give her a call,
And I found out that she was right down the hall,
Not too far away,
but that’s ok, I’ll just wait for the day when I can see
her again and spend some time.

Brand New Love Affair Part I and II – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Brand New Love Affair Part I and II

Wish I knew what was going wrong
Seems so very long since we laughed together
It’s no good to be all alone
When you hurt a friend
And you both feel empty
What I’d give to erase the pain
Will we ever make friends
Is it over or shall we try again
For a brand new love affair
Seems to me
We are both afraid
That our love may fade and we just won’t make it
Maybe soon we’ll be friends again
Find ourselves and then
Really make it happen
What I’d give to erase the pain
Will we every make friends
Is it over or shall we try again
For a brand new love affair
Start all over again
And do it up the right way
Come together my friend
And celebrate the new day
I can hardly believe
How much I really love you baby
All our tomorrows will be
A love affair with you my lady

Critic’s Choice – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Critic’s Choice

What do you want
What do you want
I’m givin’ everything I have
I’m even trying to see if there’s more
Locked deep inside
I’ll try
I’ll try
Can’t you see, this is me
What do you need
What do you need
Is someone just to hurt
So that you can appear to be smart
And use a steady job
Play God
Play God
What to you really know
You parasite
You’re dynamite
An oversight
Misunderstanding what you hear
You’re quick to cheer
And volunteer
Absurdities, musicals, blasphemies
Oh Lord
Save us all
What do you want
What do you want
I’m givin’ every thing I have
I’m even trying to see if there’s more
Locked deep inside
I’ll try
I’ll try
Can’t you see, this is me
