Goodtime Charlie's Got The Blues

Everybody's gone away
Said they're movin to L.A.
There's not a soul I know around
Everybody's leavin' town

Some caught a freight
Some caught a plane
Find the sunshine leave the rain
They said this town will waste your time
I guess they're right
It's wasting mine

Some gotta win
Some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues

Ya know my heart keeps tellin' me
You're not a kid at thirty-three
You play around you'll lose your wife
You play too long you'll lose your life

I got my pills to ease the pain
Canít find a thing to ease the rain
Iíd love to try and settle down
But everybodyís leaving town

Some gotta win
Some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues

Be Honest

Be honest
Is this where you want to be
Be honest
Are you still in love with me
Look deep in your heart
Then tell me what you see
Be honest, be honest with me

Whoa darling
Are you trying to say good-bye
Just say it
Even if I start to cry
I'd rather hear the truth
Though the truth might set you free
Be honest, be honest with me

When I ask what's wrong
You say nothin'
Is there something you're afraid of telling me
And even if it hurts
It won't be any worse
Than the silence 
That's slowly killin' me

Sit by me
Tell me all your fears and doubts
Oh oh baby
We can try to work them out
I won't ask you to be
Something you can't be
Be honest, be honest with me

I'd rather hear the tree
Though the truth might set you free
Just be honest, be honest with me

Be honest, be honest with me

This Is A Love Song

Baby
For a man like me
Words don't come
Too easily
And Lord knows
I ain't no poet
But I'm telling you girl
In case you don't know it

This here is a love song
It's my kind of love song
I know words ain't fancy or smart
But they're coming straight from the heart
And it may not be much
But I'm begging you please
Hear it through
'Cause I'm singing it girl for you

Can't you hear me singing it

How I love you
I love you
I love you
Baby I Love you

My love 
There just ain't no way
To say the thing
That I want to say
I'm so scared 
That I ain't gonna make it
Ohh now don't laugh at me girl
I just couldn't take it

This here is a love song
It's my kind of love song
I know words ain't fancy or fine
I'm just laying my soul on the line
And it may not be much
But I'm begging you please
Hear it through
'Cause I'm singing it girl for you

Can't you hear me singing it

And I love you
I love you

From Zero To Heaven

Don't cry for me
This better place is a better place
Than I ever dreamed
When you think of me
Just pick a star
Oh any star
And that's where I'll be
I wish you could have seen me
In that early morning light
I was dancing with the angels
Oh you should have seen me fly
 
From zero to Heaven
Oh you won't believe your eyes
When you see what's waiting
Up here on the other side
Just live every moment
And when your time on earth is through
Go from zero to Heaven
I'll be waiting for you
 
Don't be afraid
To live your life
Just live it like
It's your last day
Hear what I say
And rest assured
Life's nothing more
Than a passing parade
I can tell you from experience
The truth will save your soul
If your heart is right
You'll be surprised
How high you can go
 
From zero to Heaven
Oh you won't believe your eyes
When you see what's waiting
Up here on the other side
Just live every moment
And when your time on earth is through
Go from zero to Heaven
And I'll be waiting for you
 
Ohh ohh ohh
 
From zero to Heaven
Oh you won't believe your eyes
When you see what's waiting
Up here on the other side
Just live every moment
And when your time on earth is through
Go from zero to Heaven
And I'll be waiting here for you
 
Ohh I'll be waiting here for you

I Will

Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to I will

For if I ever saw you
I didn't catch your name
But it doesn't really matter
I will always feel the same

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know I will, I will
 
I will
Oh oh I will
I will
I will
Oh I will
Oh oh oh I will
I will
I will

Written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
