Lyrics

if you can't forgive

Written By: john mcandrew


“IF YOU CAN”T FORGIVE”

old man sitting , by the sea
tears rollin down his wind worn cheeks
I hold my hand out, I ask him can I help
he say’s, “help me by listening to the story I tell
he said, “my heart is full of anger, bitterness and fear,
that’s why I’m an old man full of all these tears”

ch- he said, “empty your heart of all it’s bitterness
if your angry at someone (thing), then it’s time to forgive
and fill it with love, and a little gentleness
caus you can’t go on living, if you can’t forgive”

he said, “I know you’ve been hurt son, and your hurt runs deep
but you don’t have to end up an old man like me”
he said, “I sat here full of rage, for all these years
caus nobody told me what I’m telling you here”

ch- he said, “empty your heart of all it’s bitterness
if your angry at someone (thing), then it’s time to forgive
and fill it with love, and a little gentleness
caus you can’t go on living, if you can’t forgive
you don’t go on living, if you can’t forgive”

br- then he stood up, put his arm on me
said, “promise me one thing before you leave..that you’ll

ch- “empty your heart of all it’s bitterness
if your angry at someone (thing), then it’s time to forgive
and fill it with love, and a little gentleness
caus you can’t go on living, if you can’t forgive
you don’t go on living, you can’t go on living
it just isn’t living, if you can’t forgive”

nobody knows my name

Written By: John McAndrew

No body knows my name byJohn McAndrew

Kicking down the road, shoes untied
No time to worry bout it now
Hairs blowing everywhere, in this Long Island wind
No time to worry bout it now

Ch- I’m headed for the city on the four thirty train
To sing some songs, play the night away
I’ll sit down at the old Steinway
Where No body knows my name

Soon you’ll be here,lovin my breath away
I can’t wait another day
It’s good to hear your voice, out here on the road
But I gotts run, gotta go, go , go caus

Ch- I’m headed for the city on the four thirty train
To sing some songs, play the night away
I’ll sit down at the old Steinway
Where No body knows my name

Br- someday I know, someday I hope, they will
They will know my name

Ch- I’m headed for the city on the four thirty train
To sing some songs, play the night away
I’ll sit down at the old Steinway
Where No body knows my name
I’ll sit down at the old Steinway
Where No body knows my name
Where No body knows my name

small crowds

Written By: John McAndrew

Small Crowds

I like to play for, a small crowd
Where I can see your eye’s,watching these songs
I’d rather touch a few, very very well
In a small crowd

I love to play, in little dark smokey rooms
Where I can hear you well, you can hear me well too
I would rather touch a few very,very,well
In a small crowd

Ch- maybe just you and I
Are all the crowd there’ll ever be (gonna be)
But that’s enough, oh don’t you see
Of a crowd, of a crowd for me

Old piano’s can always’s be found
People every where, they will always gather round
I would rather touch a few,very ,very, well
In a small crowd

Ch-

I like to play,for a small crowd
One at a time, never ever very loud
I would rather touch a few,very,very,loud
In a small, in a small, in a small….crowd
