Lyrics

Man on the Record

Written By: Sal Filipelli

Man on the Record, told me stories.
Man on the Record, made us dance.
Man on the Record, got me stoned.
Man on the Record, made me laugh.
Man on the Record, wouldn’t you know.
But will you play me one more song that I know?
We can chill a while on the bus and toke a load.
Before you have to go.

Man on the Record, let me stay a while.
Man on the Record, I’m not gonna let you leave.
Man on the Record, I love you.
Man on the Record, please stay with me.
Man on the Record, can I keep you?
Why is it lately you have not been in the news?
We can chill a while on the bus and toke a load.
(If I can’t have you, you won’t be seen)
Before you have to go.

Man on the Record, what have I done?
Man on the Record, there was more to do.
Man on the Record, the world will miss you
Man on the Record, I’ll miss you too.
I’m sorry, what have I done?
I’m sorry, what have I done?
I’m sorry, I didn’t know.
I just didn’t want you to go.

Back Home

Written By: Sal Filipelli

Hey Darlin' its been a long time
I'da bought you flowers but I haven't got a dime to my name,
you see that things ain't really changed.

How's your new love?
Not too long ago you told me you'd be mine a long long time,
anyways I hope he's doing fine.

I'll dry your tears,
if you drive me away from here.

Here's something I thought I'd never do,
go on a road trip with you, I'm going home,
I can't believe I'm going home.

I'll dry your tears,
if you drive me away from here.

Hey Darlin' it'll be a long time,
I'll make sure to buy you flowers next time you brought me home.
Thank you for bringing me home.
You brought me home,
Thank you for bringing me home.

I Miss the Giggles

Written By: Sal Filipelli and Roland Toney

I miss the days, way back when
strange fruit had me laughing again,
and I'm asking a friend do you remember
when it felt great just to fly like that?
things aren't the same things do change
gotta pay your bills and make that wage.
Some folks are stuck in a cage stuck in their ways am I like that?
Nah, I reminisce. The haze in my mind is like my first kiss.
And I laughed away at the same thing all day my first glitch.
What happened to those times? When you weren't on the road times, sit back get blow times? Those were some old times.

No matter what they say, had me laughing all day.
No matter what I say, I'll still be laughing away.

I reminisce. The haze in my mind is like my first kiss.
And I laughed away at the same thing all day my first glitch.

No matter what they say, had me laughing all day.
No matter what I say, I'll still be laughing away.

Just say no, dare to dare, it didn't work for me but now I'm here.
Put up my feets and I drinks a beer and I miss Mr. Giggles, why aren't you here?
I got this job now you had to go and you know you can't come around here no more.
My wife says 'no' and you got to bounce but my neighbor next door is trying to see me an ounce?

I miss I wish I could go back when

I reminisce. The haze in my mind is like my first kiss.
And I laughed away at the same thing all day my first glitch.

No matter what they say, had me laughing all day.
laughing all day.
laughing all day.

I Should Have Known

Written By: Sal Filipelli

Gotta do some changing, back to the life thats never been.
Hard facts I'm facing, I might fall down again.
I should have known, you know I should have known.

Step up and look down, I think of things that could have been.
You've got me, rearranging, blank pages of things I wrote back then.
I should have known, you know I should have known.

You know I don't know where to go, you thought I should have known.
Surprise me more and more each time, with questions I may never find.

Do you want the lowdown? Put on some Motown, and lend me your ear.
Do you really know how, you send me downtown but I won't see you for years.
I should have known, you know I should have known.

You know I don't know where to go, should I make an apology?
Old times they still ease my mind, you are a time machine, get me a time machine.

I read the signs there, might take me somewhere I thought I'd never see.
They were the best times, now beautiful blue eyes belong to a gypsy.
I should have known, you know I should have known.

Gotta do some changing, back to the life thats never been.
Hard facts I'm facing, I might fall in love again.
I should have known, you know I should have known.
Just to know, you know I should have known.
Should have known, you know I should have known.

Whims of Change

Written By: Sal Filipelli

You're looking forward to the Whims of Change.
You know that sadness in your little heart,
when she returns to Spain.
Its too late tonight to put up a fight, please don't leave my love behind.

You're looking forward to things going your way.
Thats when the sadness really starts, things don't always stay the same.
I'LL GIVE YOU ONE NIGHT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Please don't leave my love behind
Please don't leave my love behind.

Cassandra

Written By: Sal Filipelli

You look beautiful in this light,
You look beautiful.

Cassandra walks through the rain in Memphis,
and doesn't care who she goes home with
She's only searching for,
a man to dance with.

Cassandra walks through the rain in Memphis,
and doesn't know the silent killer in her midst
She's only searching for,
a dollar to walk home with.

You look beautiful in this light,
You look beautiful tonight.

I Can't See the Light of the Moon

Written By: Sal Filipelli

There's a room for two, on this lonely avenue
I can't sleep anymore, Again its after four
But the best I can do, is dream of you
Cause I can't see the light of the moon.

There's a place for two, and no space left in this room
You can find me at your door, I don't want this anymore
The games we play, made it cast away
And the hearts of lovers not sisters brothers
The taste is sweet, it's too much for me
And you'll find a new when I awake at noon
But I can't see the light of the moon.

I see a few who don't know what to do
Nor do I anymore, I'm sleeping on the floor
I stare at the sky with something in my eye
I'm truly falling, the phone rings whose calling?
It's not what it seems but I loved that dream
And the morning light appears so bright
Then the skies bright light won't appear tonight.
Each nights new, forget the moon.
I Can't See the Light of the Moon, oh no
I Can't See the Light of the Moon.

Soon

Written By: Sal Filipelli

8 am, I rise from evening
cease my dreaming of you
cause my alarm clock told me too.

9 am, I pack my lunch box and I
eat my pop tarts too
Still dancing in my dream with you.

10 am, I sit in traffic
and I get car sick too
and on the radio they're playing our song it goes..

Soon, I'll be with you.
Soon I'll be with you.

Its late in the evening
I'm going to a show
she don't even know, no no.

She hits the stage
and I'm amazed she's
put me back in my most beautiful dream, she's so much better..
Than on the magazines.

Hi, my name is Dan
I'm you're biggest fan
but you won't go home with me
Not like I planned.

Soon, I'll be with you.
Soon I'll be with you.

Nothing Else

Written By: Sal Filipelli

She's gone tonight
Left right out of my arms
Can't feel her charms
Damn this night.

Nothing Else matters in this world
Nothing Else matters in this world
Nothing Else in this world
Nothing Else in this world

Its midnight
I'm alone in bed
Can't get outta this head
Damn this night

Nothing Else matters in this world
Nothing Else matters in this world
Nothing Else in this world
Nothing Else in this world

I'll never see your face again
at least in the end
I'll see you in my dreams tonight.

Nothing Else matters in this world
Nothing Else matters in this world
Nothing Else in this world
Nothing Else in this world

Please Don't

Written By: Sal Filipelli

Remember way back time
when you used to sing
Thats when it happens in you're heart
If it means everything.
I'LL SHOW YOU ONE NIGHT THEN YOU'LL KNOW 'BOUT THIS TIME.
Please don't leave my love behind
Please don't leave my love behind
