BIRD  IN  THE  HAND (Sando)

From the minute that you're born
you put your share of the corn into your fat face
but you wake up one mornin'
just to find that you were born into a rat race

Well if you're lucky and you score
you'll be the first to want some more of what you don't got
and when you're runnin' out of time
you go and spend your last dime on a grave plot

(REFRAIN) So catch it if yoiu can
but try and understand
you've got the bird in your hand
so catch it if you can

A man needs a lover
when he gets her he'll just shove her to the wayside
and then he'll start to miss her
so once again he'll kiss her it's a hayride
she goes along for awhile
but she sees through your style like a clear day
it may sound funny but she only wanted money from you anyway

(REFRAIN)

The city people say
they haven't had a happy day they've been knocked down
they move to the sticks
but when they want to get their kicks they miss the big town
well if you really want to know what you're missin'
just take the time to listen to a bum talk
there ain't nothin' gonna suit you
so you wind up with your future on the sidewalk

(REFRAIN)

DAYS ARE ONLY HERE AND GONE (Sando)

Rising with the morning sun
it was our first day
feeling love that had to be
in the light of that day
and as we watched the sun go down
these words came to your eyes
Days Are Only Here And Gone
tell me why

and you know it seemed as though
the world was standing still
then the stars began to show
love not yet fulfilled

Now the days have come and gone
it’s been a long long time
everything we’ve said and done
and the time slipped on by
I always knew the day would come
when you would hear me Cry
but Days Are Only Here And Gone
so goodbye

SMOKEY TOPAZ (Sando)

Smokey  Topaz emerald  green
win your favors lose your dream
An  anxious  smile a  gracious  hand
a  precious  gift from  a  far  off  land

        I'll bring daisies
       and Queen Anne's  Lace
she'll be happy
       when we're face to face

Window  shopping what did  I see
nothing to show how much you mean to me
All that glitters isn't necessarily gold
Love is warm as  any  sable  shoal

         I'll bring daisies
       and Queen Anne's  Lace
she'll be happy
       when we're face to face

Smokey  Topaz emerald  green
win your favors lose your dream
win your favors lose your dream
lose  your  dream
you lose your dream

NO  EARTH  CAN  BE  WON   (Sando)

Theres  a toy  in the field It turns to rust
There's a boy  at  the wheel Dust  to  dust
Well it won’t be a warthat makes men free
You won’t need no lock on your door
when understanding is the key 

(CHORUS)      No Earth Can Be Won        
It  was  given  to  all of mankind        
Thy  will  be  done        
At  the  hand  of  God 

If you just  take  what  you  need
and  give  when  you  can
you’ll be planting  the seed
of love of land 

(CHORUS) 

Now your nation may rise
But  the night will fall
There's  a  full  moon  in  the  sky
and you can see it all
The wind and the rain
The land and the sea
The pleasure and pain
You and me 

(CHORUS) 

BAD DREAM (Sando)

There’s a Bad Dream goin’ ‘round
and everybody knows it’s coming true
but they don’t know what to do

Some got a lot to say
but do they understand the words they use
we still got a lot to lose

You say you’ve got a friend
who knows just how to end this infection
Open up your eyes
I think you’ll recognize deception

And who’s gonna seize the throne
there must have been some writing on the wall
leave the pieces where they fall

I know that you believe
in trying to achieve perfection
I don’t want to change your mind
but call me when you find direction

Bad Dream goin’ ‘round
believe me when you wake up you will know
you’ve got no place left to go

I WON’T CRY NO MORE (Sando)

I sit by the window and wonder how close you can be
but I can't say for sure
my lamp is lit in case you need something to see
and I won't lock the door
be it early or late I will patiently wait 'til you come
and I'll know you're the one
'cause I Won't Cry No More
I Won't Cry No More

I promised myself to be ready when love comes to call
it happened once before
I had nothing to offer and now I have nothing at all
I think I'll cry some more
but that's all behind me I'm here and you can find me someday
and I know you will stay
and I Won't Cry No More
I Won't Cry No More

OVER THIS TABLE (Sando)

Hope came by today but couldn't climb the wall
then she went away and I slept through it all
From town the bells leaked in and whispered in my ears
and striking up my memory I saw it all quite clear

And I lift up my voice
and raise a question or two
Over This Table
looking at you

There I was again crying up my sleeve
counting down the time on another New Year's Eve
We looked upon our lives resolved to make things right
but time is only wasted when you see it in that light

And I lift up my voice
May all your wished come true
Over This Table
looking at you

TEARS OF AGES (Sando)

Did you ever read a story
and feel you were there
and when you hear a song of people dead and gone
still you care

The crumbling of an ancient steeple
the passing of a queen
a young girl feeling old and feeble
and dying in her dream

 Oh the Tears of Ages
are here on the pages
just to explain
And the voices behind you
come back to remind you
that people never seem to change

A king with every wealth and treasure
a pawn without a meal
a man who only yearns for pleasure
but what else can he feel

Oh the Tears of Ages
are here on the pages
just to explain
And the voices behind you
come back to remind you
that people never seem to change

So if you ever read a story
You know you’ll be there
And when you hear a song of people dead and gone
Something deep in your heart will make you care
