Album : Breakfast In America
(Roger Hodgson / Rick Davies)
It was an early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be movin' on
Like a king without a castle,
Like a queen without a throne,
I'm an early mornin' lover
And I must be movin' on.
Now I believe in what you say
Is the undisputed truth
But I have to have things my own way
Just to keep me in my youth.
Like a ship without an anchor
Like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies
Sends a shiver through my brains.
And I will go on shining
Shinin' like brand new.
I'll never look behind me,
My troubles will be few.
Goodbye stranger, it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true.
Goodbye, Mary. Goodbye, Jane.
Will we ever meet again ?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame,
Come tomorrow, feel no pain.
And sweet devotion, it's not for me
Just give me motion and set me free.
And the land and the ocean far away
Is the life I've chosen everyday.
Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't
With some it's just as well
You can laugh at my behaviour
That'll never bother me
Say the devil is my saviour
But I won't pay no heed.
