Lyrics

Invisible Girl

Written By: Peter Rice

Invisible Girl

You hide away inside yourself
Right after you appear
Using words that leave me cut
Then you disappear

But you’re still standing
Retreated to your favorite landing
Lost inside your shell of steel
I feel my soul begin to kneel

I saw you hesitate
Right before your hostage take
Can’t penetrate
Your momentary zeal, oh-oh-oh

You’re so evasive to my pleas
You do it with such ease
Incommunicado
Where’s the girl I used to see

I can’t go on
In this endless marathon
You’ve become somebody else
I call

Invisible Girl
(that’s who you are)
Invisible world
(that’s where you live)

Invisible Girl
(that’s who you are)
Invisible world
(that’s where you live)

You live, you know
You can’t pretend
So watch out now
It’s still the same old end

Ah-ah, yeah-yeah
It’s always gonna be
The same old end
Oh yeah-yeah
Always gonna stay
The same old end

Next Move's On You

Written By: Peter Rice

Next Move

Here you stand in front of me
All dressed up in your beauty

And I'm the lucky one
I'm in this room with a view of you

It doesn't matter what you wear
Or even how you fix your hair

'Cause when you walk with me, talk with me
I feel my heart beating
faster yeah

I can't wait another minute
I have a dream and you're in it

Don’t want to wake up on my own

I can't wait another day and night
Baby I've got you in my sight

We got something going and you know it
I'm only praying
you'll show it tonight yeah
ah-ha The Next Move’s on You
The Next Move’s on You

The way you laugh, the way you move
The way you turn to see If I see you

Throw a kiss to me when you leave
From your world of cool and fantasy?

Tell me now’s any of this real?
I already know how I feel

When I see you tonight
I will be
waiting on you
to make it right yeah

I can't wait another minute
I have a dream and you're in it

Don’t want to wake up on my own

I can't wait another day and night
Baby I've got you in my sight

We got something going and you know it
I'm only praying
you'll show it tonight yeah
ah-ha The Next Move’s on You
The Next Move’s on You

Walking In Memphis

Written By: Marc Cohn,Performed by Peter Rice

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W.C. Handy -- won't you look down over me
Yeah I got a first class ticket
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

Then I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel

Saw the ghost of Elvis
On Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
Then I watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered 'round his tomb
But there's a pretty little thing
Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room

(Chorus)

They've got catfish on the table
They've got gospel in the air
And Reverend Green be glad to see you
When you haven't got a prayer
But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis

Now Muriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see her
And they asked me if I would --
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might
And she said --
"Tell me are you a Christian child?"
And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

(Chorus)

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
