Someday (August 29, 1968) – Chicago

Lirik lagu: Someday (August 29, 1968)

Would you look around you now
And tell me what you see
Faces full of hate and fear
Faces full of me
Do you feel the rumblings
As your head comes crumbling down
Do you know what I mean
Run, you better, run you know
The End is getting near
Feel the wind of something hard
Come whistling past your ear
As they try to get you
Where it will upset you
Down
Now you know what I mean
Someday you will see how long
We’ve waited for the time
To show you how we’ve died
To get together with you all
Twist and turn your head around
‘Till everything’s unclear
Twist and turn your arm around
Until it is not there
And they’d love to burn you
Or at least to turn you around
Now you know what I mean
Can you look around you now
And tell us what’s to be
Can you look inside yourself
And tell us what you see
As you feel the rumblings
As your head comes crumbling down
And you know what I mean
Someday you will see how long
We’ve been waiting for the time
To show you how we’ve died
To get together with you all

When All the Laughter Dies In Sorrow – Chicago

Lirik lagu: When All the Laughter Dies In Sorrow

When all the laughter dies in sorrow
And the tears have risen to a flood
When all the wars have found a cause
In human wisdom and in blood
Do you think they’ll cry in sadness
Do you think the eye will blink
Do you think they’ll curse the madness
Do you even think they’ll think
When all the great galactic systems
Sigh to a frozen halt in space
Do you think there will be some remnant
Of beauty of the human race
Do you think there will be a vestige
Or a sniffle or a cosmic tear
Do you think a greater thinking thing
Will give a damn that man was here

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.
