1:  IN THE EVENING
In the evening when the day is done,
I'm looking for my woman,
Oh but the girl don't come.
So don't let her play you for a fool,
She don't show no pity,
No, no, she don't make no rules.
Oh, I need your love, I need your love,
Oh, I need your love, I just gotta have it.
So don't you let her oh get under your skin,
It's only bad luck
And trouble oh from the day that you begin.
I hear you crying in the darkness,
No don't ask nobody's help,
Oh ain't no pockets full of mercy baby,
'Cause you can only blame yourself.
Oh, I need your love, oh, oh I need your love,
ooh yeah I need your love, I've got pain.
Ooh it's simple, all the pain that you go through,
You can't turn away from fortune, fortune, fortune,
'Cause that's all that's left to you.
Hey, it's lonely at the bottom,
Man it's dizzy at the top,
But if you're standing in the middle,
Oh ain't no way you're gonna stop.
Oh baby, oh, oh, I need your love,
Oh, oh, I need your love,
On, on, I need your love, I've got pain.
   [guitar solo]
Ooh, whatever, what your days may bring,
No use hiding in a corner
'Cause that won't change a thing.
If you're dancing in the doldrums,
One day soon it's gotta stop.
When you're master of the off-chance,
well you don't expect a lot.
  [chorus, ad lib vocals to end]
2:  SOUTH BOUND SUAREZ
Baby, when you walk the sweet walk
Oh, you walk it good.  Yes, you walk it good
Baby, when you talk the sweet talk
It sounds so good.  Oh, so good
With a little bit of concentration
And a little bit of a helping hand
And a little bit of raving madness
You know it makes me feel, baby
Both my feet are back on the ground
And when the rhythm takes me
It feels so good.  Oh, so good
Baby, if it keeps you shaking
It will do you good.  Yeah, so much good
With a little bit of stop shaking, shaking
And a little bit of slow right down
Just a little bit of sweet con carne
It makes me feel, makes me feel
I got my feet on the ground
Now baby, when you move it makes me
Really feel so good.  Oh, so good
And I'm so glad, so glad, so glad, so glad
And I'm good.  Oh, so good
With a little bit more concentration
Just a little bit of a helping hand
With a little bit of raving madness
It makes me feel, makes me feel
Back on the ground
It makes me feel, yeah, back on the ground
Suarez, Suarez
Baby, baby, back on the ground
3:  FOOL IN THE RAIN
Well, there's a light in your eye
that keeps shining
Like a star that can't wait for the night
I hate to think I've been blinded, baby
Why can't I see you tonight?
And the warmth of your smile starts a-burning
And the thrill of your touch gives me fright
And I'm shaking so much, really yearning
Why don't you show up and make it all right?
Yeah, it's all right

And if you promised you'd love so completely
And you said you would always be true
You swore that you never would leave me, baby
Whatever happened to you?
And you thought it was only in movies
As you wish all your dreams would come true
It ain't the first time, believe me, baby
I'm standing here feeling blue, blue
Yeah, I'm blue

Now I will stand in the rain on the corner
I'll watch the people go shuffling downtown
Another ten minutes, no longer
And then I'm turning around
The clock on the wall's moving slower
My heart it sinks to the ground
And the storm that I thought would blow over
Clouds the light of the love that I found
Light of the love that I found

[scatting]

Now my body is starting to quiver
And the palms of my hands getting wet
I've got no reason to doubt you, baby
It's all a terrible mess
And I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run till I drop
The thoughts of a fool's kind of careless
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block

Light of the love that I found,
4:  HOT DOG
Well, I just got into town today
To find my girl has gone away
She took the Greyhound at the general store
I searched myself - I searched the town
When I finally did sit down
I find myself no wiser than before
She said we couldn't do no wrong
No other love could be so strong
She'd locked up my heart in her bottom drawer
Now she took my heart - she took my keys
From in my old blue dungarees
And I'll never go to Texas anymore
   [chorus]
     Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do
     She took my love and walked right out the door
     And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
     I'm gonna give her something
             like she never had before
I took her love at seventeen
A little late these days it seems
But they say heaven's well worth waiting for
I took her word - I took it all
Beneath the sign that said U-Haul
She'd left angels hanging round for more
   [chorus]
I thought I had it all sewn up
Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck
But folks said she was after something more
I never did quite understand
All that talk about rocking bands
But they just rolled my doll right out the door
Oh yes, they just rolled my doll right out the door
They just rolled my doll right out the door.
5:  CAROUSELAMBRA
Sisters of the wayside biding time in quiet peace
Await their place within the ring of calm
Still stand to turn in seconds of release
Await the call they know may never come
In times of lightness no intruder, no harm
To jeopardise the course, upset the run
And all was joy and hands
Were raised toward the sun
As love in the halls of plenty overrun

Still in their bliss unchallenged by defeat
Unending dances shadowed on the day
Within the wall their daunting formless keep
Preserved their joy and kept their doubts at bay
Faceless legions stood in readiness to weep
Just turn a coin, bring order to the fray
And everything is soon,
No sooner thought than deed
But no-one seemed to question in any way

How keen the storied hunter's eye
Prevails upon the land
To seek the unsuspecting and the weak
And powerless the fabled sat,
Too slow to lift a hand
Toward the foe that threatened from the deep
Who cares to dry the cheeks
Of those who saddened stand
Adrift upon the sea of futile speech
And draw the vein of blood that stains the land
That no-one ever, ever, could ever reach

Where was your word? Where did you go?
Where was your helping?
Where was your bow, bow?

Dull is the armour, cold is the day
Hard was the journey, dark was the way, way

I heard the word, I couldn't stay
I couldn't stand it another day
Another day, another day, another day

Touched by the timely coming
Roused from the deepest sleep
Release the grip, throw down the key
Held now within the knowing
Rests now within the peace
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed

Held now within the knowing
Rests now within the peace
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed
Take of the fruit, but guard the seed
6:  ALL MY LOVE
Should I fall out of love, my fire in the night
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end
For many hours and days that pass ever soon
The tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight - the hand to the loom
Is this the end or just beginning?
   [chorus]
     All of my love, all of my love
     All of my love to you, now
     All of my love, all of my love
     All of my love to you, now
The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Ariane, one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin
   [chorus]
Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
His is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind
   [chorus]
7:  I'M GONNA CRAWL
Oh, she's my baby - let me tell you why
Hey, she drives me crazy
She's the apple of my eye
'Cause she is my girl,
and she can never do wrong
If I dream too much at night,
Somebody please bring me down
Hey, I love that little lady - I got to be her fool
Ain't no other like my baby,
I can break the golden rule
'Cause I get down on my knees
I pray that love won't die
And if I always try to please,
I don't know the reason why
If she would come back - only stay with me
Every little bit, every little bit,
every little bit of my love I give to you, girl
Every little bit, every little bit,
every little bit of my love
I don't have to go by plane, I ain't gotta go by car
I don't care just where my darling is
People, I just don't care how far
I'm gonna crawl - I'm gonna crawl
I don't care if I got to go back home
I don't care that I got to start again
I'm gonna crawl - I'm gonna crawl
She give me good loving, she give me good loving
Yes, I love her, I guess I love her
Yes, I love her, I wanna crawl
