Lyrics

Something in You

Written By: Steve Martin

Take a look in my eyes and tell me what is it you see?
I’m everything that you say that you want; I got everything you need.
I got closer to you hoping that you’d open up your arms
‘cause you, my dear, hold me spellbound with your charms.

An’ don’t I treat you nice an’ don’t I make you smile; can I ask you please:
Is this close enough for you? Cause this is never gonna be close enough for me
And I’ve just got to let you know that I see something in you
And I wish you could see it in me.

You talk about all the guys that you would like to see
Well, what you see in them, why can’t you see those things in me?
Cause if I can’t have you, I might have to go and fall apart
Cause you, my dear, have got a hold of my heart.

An’ don’t I treat you nice an’ don’t I make you smile; can I ask you please:
Is this close enough for you? Cause this is never gonna be close enough for me
And I’ve just got to let you know that I see something in you
And I wish you could see it in me.

Why can’t you see it in me? Ohhhhh

An’ don’t I treat you nice an’ don’t I make you smile; can I ask you please:
Is this close enough for you? Cause this is never gonna be close enough for me
And I’ve just got to let you know that I see something in you
And I wish you could see it in me.

Let's Make Love

Written By: Steve Martin

There’s something… there’s something about you…
And the way you look tonight that makes me wanna hold you.
And there’s nothing… no, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do…
to make you mine. Let’s take it all the way tonight

And let’s make love. Take your clothes off,
let’s make love until the morning.
Let’s make love, move your body next to mine.
Let’s make love.

You move in… you move in so closely now
that I can feel your heart beat next to mine and I start to shiver.
Well, I’ve waited… an’ I’ve waited my whole life for a feeling like this
and I can feel myself lose control.

And let’s make love. Take your clothes off,
let’s make love until the morning.
Let’s make love, move your body next to mine.
Let’s make love.

Come lie down on the bed.
Look into my eyes.
Let the temperature rise,
Take my hand
and put your lips on mine

And let’s make love. Just throw your clothes off,
and let’s make love until the morning.
Let’s make love, move your body next to mine.
Let’s make love.

Just throw your clothes down on the floor
And Lets make love
Move your body next to mine
And lets make love,

let’s make love, let’s make love

The Saddest Song in the World

Written By: Steve Martin

It’s so sad to leave you.
Behind a smile I hide
The tears that keep on fallin’
Inside a heart that’s breaking

So I sat and I wrote this song:
The saddest song in the world.
And I wish I didn’t know the words
’cause it hurts to say out loud

That my time with you is over
But my love for you’s not gone
And my hope is that you’d come back to me
But my fear’s that you won’t

So I sat and I wrote this song:
The saddest song in the world.
And I wish I didn’t know the words
’cause it hurts to say out loud
That it’s over

So I sat and I wrote this song:
The saddest song in the world.
And I wish I didn’t know the words
’cause it hurts to say out loud
That it’s over

The Clown

Written By: Steve Martin

Did you ever catch a glimpse of my real smile
And wait to see the laughter rise into my eyes
Or think to ask why I arrive and leave alone
Instead you complain about the traffic running slow

Because I am but a clown, somebody’s fool
Though people stare at me they always look right through
And when they laugh at all my jokes it makes me smile
But after the laughter dies then, sometimes, so do I.

Did I always dress like that and do I always make them laugh?
How do I paint my face all by myself?
Have I always worn these clothes to hide myself away from those
Who only want to see me laugh and joke
And not discuss the things in my life that are broke.

In makeup, wigs and hats, big shoes and bows
There lies a person no one takes the time to know
And I try to never let it get me down
’cause nobody likes to see tears on a clown

But did I always dress like that and do I always make them laugh?
How do I paint my face all by myself?
And have I always worn these clothes to hide myself away from those
Who only want to see me laugh and joke
And not discuss the things in my life that are broke.

Well there’s one more joke to go and it’s the best one of the show,
You’ll laugh all the way home
So gather round, ’cause here it comes, I hope you’re sitting comfortably
- the joke is me.

Did I always dress like that and do I always make them laugh?
And How’d I paint my face all by myself?
And have I always worn these clothes to hide myself away from those
Who only want to see me laugh and joke
And not discuss the things in my life that are broke
’cause I’m the clown.

The Movie Maker

Written By: Steve Martin

Verse1:

Sometimes, when I’m waiting in the wings
It’s easy to feel afraid
As I watch all the other people around me
Acting out their parts on stage.
I learned my lines but things keep changing
So now I’m just waiting for my new part.
How much of this is scripted and what’s ad libbed by the cast?
Will the Movie-Maker trash His set?

Chorus:

Or will He cast more headline stars like Nanak and Jesus
To save His show
So when the curtain finally falls
We’ll all be greeted by wild applause

Verse 2:

Will you know me? And how will you I know you?
Does it make a difference which path I choose?
And why are there so many ways to find you?
Are they pieces of Truth? Or are some wrong?
If we all believed the same thing could someone rise up over you?
So to protect us all you divide and rule

Chorus:

That’s why You cast Your headline stars like Nanak and Jesus
To save us all.
And when the curtain finally falls
We’ll all be greeted by wild applause

Middle 8:

How can I, a fish, go swimming in Your deep blue ocean
And know the outer reaches of Your shores?
All I need to know is if I find myself outside You
Then I will burst and I can be no more.

Chorus:

That’s why You cast Your headline stars like Nanak and Jesus
To guide us home.
And when the curtain finally falls
We’ll all be greeted by wild applause.

Lady, Can I Meet You Tonight?

Written By: Steve Martin

They call me a child of the digital age
and that’s not my fault, remember?
I added you to all my digital friends
But that don’t seem real enough now.
We spoke for hours on the MSN
On our virtual engagement.
My digital heart skipped a digital beat;
now I want you in the real world.

So, lady, can I meet you tonight?
I know it’s silly, but there’s something ‘bout you that feels right
And though you’re from a far-off city
I don’t see why we cannot meet and fall in love... Yeah...

You gave me your number and your real first name
Based on pixel-fuelled attraction
You texted me and we got down to
Some digital affection
And these days it’s not the safest call
To meet the strangers we google
But I’ll take the chance if you will, too
It’ll be alright for me and you.

Lady, can I meet you tonight?
I know it’s silly, but there’s something ‘bout you that feels right
And though you’re from a far-off city
I don’t see why we cannot meet and fall in love... Yeah...

I saw you add me to your MySpace Top Friends;
Straight in at number 4;
Returned the feelin’, put you in my top 10
And now I want you more…

So, lady, can I meet you tonight?
I know it’s silly, but there’s something ‘bout you that feels right
And though you’re from a far-off city
I don’t see why we cannot meet and fall in love.

Can I meet you tonight?
I know it’s silly, but there’s something ‘bout you that feels right
And though you’re from a far-off city
I don’t see why we cannot meet and fall in love... and fall in love.
And fall in love.

If She Doesn't Want Me

Written By: Steve Martin

I woke up last Tuesday and my head was in a spin
and I asked myself is this the girl that I've been waiting for.
'cause she looks at me and she smiles
and I can see when I look in her eyes
that life would never be the same if she just let me in
It's not the first time that I've fallen in too deep...

But this is more than I have felt before
This is more than I can explain away
This is more than I had expected to find
And it's more than I can take if she doesn't want me.

Would you kick your shoes off and go dancing in the rain?
Would you wake up on a cloudy morning and sleep in 'til late?
Would you walk in the moonlight and go swimming in the sea?
'Cause I would do all of these things if you would do them with me.
It's not the first time that I've fallen in too deep...

But this is more than I have felt before
This is more than I can explain away
This is more than I had expected to find
And it's more than I can take if she doesn't want me.

But I'd rather take the pain than let this pass
'cause this may be 'the one' at last...

This is more than I have felt before
This is more than I can explain away
This is more than I had expected to find
And it's more than I can take if she doesn't want me...
If she doesn't want me...
If she doesn't want me...

Beauty Falls

Written By: Steve Martin

I said I wouldn’t come here…
I said I wouldn’t come back here again;
Yet here I am, where I began,
Drawn to the edge of something beautiful
and still I can’t find my way in.

Up on the banks of Beauty Falls,
I like the views; I miss the walls.
I waited there for you to call
But crashing water is all I heard -
That’s all I heard.

I tried to settle down here…
I tried to build a home here but I can’t;
the Falls dry up and turn to sand.
I’m torn between love and emptiness,
And though it is hard to leave, it’s harder to return.

Up on the banks of Beauty Falls,
I like the views; I miss the walls.
I waited there for you to call
But crashing water is all I heard.

You lead me here to tempt me with your waters;
It helps me breathe a while.
But, as I leave, I thirst for so much more
Than I have ever found.

Up on the banks of Beauty Falls,
I like the views but I miss the walls.
I waited there for you to call
But crashing water is all I heard -
That’s all I heard.

The One I Leave Behind

Written By: Steve Martin

I didn't mean to hurt you but it turned out that way;
I tried to do my best by you but it looks like I've failed.
But something in the way that you looked at me that night said you were in pain
And if I didn't leave right now then I would be the one to blame...

For all of the tears you were crying - that you must let out;
but if there's too much inside, one day you might drown.
And something in the way that you looked at me that night said I caused your pain,
So it's better now if I go but that is all I want to say.

Sail on, my love, and save what I lost
And one day you will find the one I leave behind.

We shared such good times, indulging our love;
we played music for hours but never earning enough.
Then something in the way that you looked at me that night, it said 'it's all changed'.
and I couldn't lie to myself anymore but that is all I want to say.

Sail on, my love, and save what I lost
And one day you will find the one I leave behind...

But there's something that I want you to know: none of this was in vain; and one day I will explain but for now that's all I want to say

Sail on, my love, and save what I lost
And one day you will find the one I leave behind.

Get Off The Train (and wait)

Written By: Steve Martin

I’m sat at the station, just waiting –
For a train that might not come
And I’ve not been here long, so I hope it’s not gone
’cause I just can’t take that today…
So I’ll wait… I’ll wait… I’ll wait…

Nobody knows where they’re heading
Yet, we all want a train
Do you know how I cried when we said goodbye? –
’Cause I can’t go through that again.
So I’ll wait… I’ll wait… I’ll wait…

And nobody said this was easy
but nobody cares if you’re late
so long as you wait for the right train
and not for your train to derail
So, just wait. Just get off the train and wait.

I’m sat on a train, and I’m staring
At the world rushing by.
Will I know in my heart when I reach the stop
Where I should be getting off?
Or will I wait? And wait? And wait?

Well, nobody said this was easy
but nobody cares if you’re late
so long as you wait for the right train
and not for your train to derail
Just wait. Just get off the train and wait.

I’ve paid my money, got my tickets and my destination
And when this train terminates, I’ll head for the door
But the last station call’s the most crowded of all
’cause people get scared to get off.
And wait.

And nobody said this was easy
and nobody cares if you’re late
so long as you wait for the right train
and not for your train to derail
Just wait. Just get off the train and wait.
Just wait.

Beneath This Cloud

Written By: Steve Martin

I can see it’s a long way down to the rocks beneath this cloud
And if I fall, who will raise me up? And if I cry, who will be comfort?
I’m scared to leave; I’m scared of heights; I’m scared to live;
I’m scared to die and I’m scared that I won’t make it home…

Whenever you’re lost I’ll be your guide;
Whenever you call I’ll be at your side.

‘Cause in your eyes, I see my eyes and in your laugh, I see my smile
And in your voice I hear my words and, beneath this cloud, you’ll feel my love, unconditional.

They say it’s so hard down there to find a road that’ll lead somewhere
So, if I’m blind, who will help me see? And if I’m lame, who will bring me here?
There’s so much to learn and there’s so much to lose; and so much to distract and confuse; there’s too much that I don’t understand…

Whenever you’re lost I’ll be your guide;
Whenever you call I’ll be at your side.

‘Cause in your eyes, I see my eyes and in your laugh, I see my smile
And in your voice I hear my words so, beneath this cloud, you’ll feel my love, unconditional.

It’s time to go now, don’t be afraid
I will be with you each and every step you take

Whenever you’re lost I’ll be your guide;
Whenever you call I’ll be at your side.

‘Cause in your eyes, I see my eyes and in your laugh, I see my smile
And in your voice I hear my words so, beneath this cloud, you’ll feel my love, unconditional.

It's Alright

Written By: Steve Martin

I’m sorry I get mad and scream and shout at you sometimes
and make you cry.
I know it’s selfish but I just need you by my side
to make things right
’cause I’ve got problems and I don’t care what I have to say to save myself
And without you here, I’ve got nothing left.

And it’s alright to be the one who feels the pain,
And it’s alright to be the one who takes the blame,
And it’s alright to be the one who hurts the most,
But to fall in love, only to have lost,
What does that cost?

Filled with drink now, I take my car keys and walk out the door;
What did I do that for?
It’s such a clear night, it’s the perfect weather to take a ride;
I pull out on the wrong side
and fly down the highway; after ninety miles an hour I lost count
but when I saw lights, I put my foot down.

’Cause it’s alright to be the one who feels the pain,
And it’s alright to be the one who takes the blame,
And it’s alright to be the one who hurts the most,
But to fall in love, only to have lost,
What does that cost?

The sound is so loud as they try to cut me out;
I’ve drawn a crowd.
A cracked wing mirror paints the story of my whole life;
And it ain’t that nice.
Torn to pieces, I finally look like I felt inside,
As I watch myself die.

’Cause it’s alright to be the one who feels the pain,
And it’s alright to be the one who takes the blame,
And it’s alright to be the one who hurts the most,
But to fall in love, only to have lost,
What does that cost?
What does that cost?

Still

Written By: Steve Martin

I’ve set in song, each word I’ve said,
the places I’ve been – places where I’ve been led;
words served me well
but now they’re better left unsaid.
’cause silence is the only thing
That shields my mind from the din
Now what I fear and want the most
Present themselves as one.

And, still, I long for you.
And, still, I long for you.

Torn between everything she is
And the life she has –
such things would surely break me
and, then, break us, too.
But it’s dark and it’s cold
An’ I’m old and lonely, waiting,
praying, for someone just like you
So why not you?

And, still, I long for you.
And, still, I long for you.

And I wish that I could chase
all these thoughts out of my brain
But when my thoughts escape
They just appear on my page.
And this distance I have kept
I am growing to resent.
But I wish I loved you more, I wish I loved you more,
And I wish I loved you more… and maybe I do

’cause, still, I long for you.
And, still, I long for you.
And, still, I long for you.
