Bob Druwing Song Lyrics

Updated on September 17, 2014

Beatrice

Beatrice was a Goddess

Beatrice was an omen

Beatrice was an instant

A moment

Beatrice was a stranger

Beatrice was an other

Beatrice was a waitress

A lover

Beatrice was a priestess of Abraxis

She was all good and all bad

She had male and female qualities

He worshiped her on holidays

Beatrice was a dream that he had

Sinclair was in love with her

He painted her portrait

He kept it on his easel

And he bowed before it

He left it to get rained on

-She was his universal Mother-

He was glad for it

She was a universal lover

Beatrice was a priestess of Abraxis

She was all good and all bad

She had male and female qualities

He worshiped her on holidays

Beatrice was a dream that he had

Beatrice was a girl in the park

She was the truth and the lie

Beatrice was the light and the dark

Beatrice was an image in the sky

Beatrice was his inspiration

Beatrice was his mistress

She was his imagination

His wishes

Beatrice was awakening

She was his recovery

His revitalization

Beatrice was discovery

Beatrice was a priestess of Abraxis

She was all good and all bad

She had male and female qualities

He worshiped her on holidays

Beatrice was a dream that he had

Beatrice was a dream that he had

Beatrice ........

........was a dream that we have

Hesse's Demian: Sinclair's story

Caveman

I'm just a caveman for your love, baby

A crazy brave man for your love

It's got me primitive

I'd take a club to the whole world

For you to be my own cavegirl

'Cause I'm just a caveman for your love

Civilization's over-rated; my appetites

Can not be satiated

In a place so regulated

I'd blow it all right to the bone age

To go with you back to the stone age

'Cause I'm just a caveman for you love

I know you think I've got rocks in my head

Just because everyone who thinks like me's a

million years dead

But I know

Unless your heart is made out of stone

You'd never leave me here all alone

And I'm just a caveman for your love.......

(instrumental verse)

I know you think I'm a Ne-an-der-thal

Just because I think we should burn the towns

and

level the malls

But I know

If you were just a natural girl

You'd never modernize the whole world

And I'm just a caveman for your love

This world is only what we make it, baby

Coming out of nature's a mistake

It's a dead-end street

I'd give it all to whoever'd take it

To drag you on back to my cave naked

'Cause I'm just a caveman for your

A crazy brave man for your

I'm just a caveman for your love, baby

I'm just a caveman for your ------ love!

How You Play The Game

I don't believe in love anymore

I think it's all just a game

And win or lose, it don't matter anymore

To me it's all the same

It's just how you play the game

I don't believe anything's real anymore

I think the whole world's gone insane

I don't believe I want to feel anymore

'Cause I just can't stand the pain

Of how you play the game

chorus:

I used to believe in love and understanding

I used to believe in truth and honesty

I used to believe in caring

Until I found that no-one was caring..about me

I don't believe in magic anymore

I don't believe in dreams coming true

Belief in comedy..seems tragic to me now

'Cause you don't believe...in me and you

(and I can't believe we're through)

Bridge:

Some people play to win

Some people play to lose

Some people play at sin

Even though it breaks the rules

Some people play at love

Some people play for fun

Some people play as two

And some people.....play as one

I don't believe in love anymore

I think it's all just a game

And win or lose it don't matter anymore

To me it's all the same

It's just how you play the game

....It's just how you play the game

.....I don't believe in love anymore

Your Only One

I don't want to be the one to go

I don't want to be the last to know

If we're not one hundred percent

Like I told you from the start

I don't want to hear one good-bye

Don't even want to give that a try

I don't want to be the one in love

And be the one with a broken heart

I just want to be one half

of one and one is two

I just want to be someone

who's half of me and you

I just want to be the one

you can't be divided from

I just want to be the one

that you will decide upon

when summin' up is through

and you know that one alone is one too few

I don't want to be one of your friends

Unless I am your one and only man

I don't want to be one torn in two

Don't want to be alone in love with you

I just want to be the one

to multiply your dreams

The whole is greater than the sum

if one and one is you and me

I just want to be the one

you won't have subtracted from ya

Just want to be the one

always attractive to ya

To be the one who

knows just how to do

what you want your man to

I don't want to be the one alone

Don't want to be the only one at home

I don't want to see us come undone

I just want to be your only one

I just want to be the one

you've always dreamed about

I just want to be the one

that you can't do without

I want to be the one

you've added to your family

And multiply some

if you want to add to you an' me

a daughter or a son

if we decide that one and one

is still short one

I don't want to be the one alone

Don't want to be the only one at home

I don't want to see us come undone

I just want to be your only one

I just want to be your only one

i just want to be your only one!

Playing With Matches

You like striking matches

You like lighting the fuse

You like starting fires

You won't wait around to lose

So you run when the flames are high

When the heart is finally afire

Why is it that your torch of love

Only leads to a funeral pyre?

Chorus I:

You like playing with matches

You like lighting fires

You like playing with matches

You like lighting fires

And making them burn out

And making them burn out

You put me through such changes

You like being chased

You like running away from love

You love creating waste

You exceed the limits

You like breaking the rules

You like playing chicken

You like acting cruel...You like having a fool!

Chorus 2:

You like pushing the limits

You like breaking the rules

You like pushing the limits

You like breaking the rules

You like creating doubt

You like planting seeds

You like making things grow

You like cutting them down again

You like saying "no"

You like going fishing

You like getting them hooked

You like throwing them back in the stream

Without a second look

(repeat Chorus I)

Discovery

If I discovered you,

who would you be?

If you dicovered me,

what would you see?

What are we looking for?

Is there a "we"?

Or am I all alone out here

Pursuing false destiny?

Chorus:

If I met your eyes

would there be chemistry?

If we set out to find

would there be discovery?

Where do we go from here,

Up or down?

Will we be satisfied

With what we've found?

Are we afraid to fail?

Do we intend on success?

A journey of a thousand miles

Begins with a first step

Chorus II:

Is there anything out there?

Are we on the right track?

Do you want to go further?

Do you want to go back?

BRIDGE:

I can't see into the future

If I could there'd be no mystery

I can't see into the future

If I could there'd be no discovering

What is this mountain?

Are we trying to climb?

Will we stumble and fall

Or step out of line?

Where are we going?

Are we on the right path?

Is this our first chance

Or is this our last?

Chorus III:

Are you the someone

I've been dreaming of?

Is this all just a dream

Or have we discovered love?

If I discovered you

who would you be?

Goodnight Hollywood Blvd.

The red carpet from the Chinese Theater

Has been rolled up and stored away

The fans and the paparazzi

Have deserted The Walk Of Fame

Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard

The show's over for one more day

From Gower to LaBrea

There's not a stretched limo in sight

The Egyptian and El Capitan

Have locked their doors up tight

Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard

The show's over for tonight

(bridge)

The celebrities and the wannabes, the somebodies and nobodies, all but the cabbies,

cops and homeless are gone it seems

The klieg lights are off; the subway trains have all stopped

Everyone's asleep and dreamin' of...

Wakin' up tomorrow to that...

Boulevard of dreams...

'Cause the next superstar is just around the bend

Starrin' in the next blockbuster, in the land of make pretend

You can say, "Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard",

But the show never really ends

You can say, "Goodnight...goodnight Hollywood...

"Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard...."

You can say, "Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard",

But the show....never really ends

Everything

I know a girl with a beautiful smile

Who wouldn't hesitate to go the extra mile

To do the right thing with her heart in the right place

And I know that's just what keeps that smile on her face

I know a girl who's made out of light

She's not too hot; she's not too hard; she's . . . just right

I know a girl with the means and the plan

A girl with the world in the palm of her hand

Chorus:

And I can't help myself

I just gotta sing

'Cause I know a girl who has everything

Yeah, I know a girl

Who has everything

I know a girl with higher ideals

And when she laughs . . . she squeaks and she squeals

I know a girl who knows how it feels

To be overflowing with female appeal

I know a girl with a burning desire

An' I know a girl whose imagination's on fire

I know a girl with love for the world

An' I'm just a boy with love for a girl

Chorus:

And I can't help myself

I just gotta sing

'Cause I know a girl who has everything

Yeah, I know a girl

Who has everything

Don't Be Afraid

Don't look for something that isn't there

And look to yourself first for happiness

Don't break your heart over one who won't care,

When all the illusions are laid to rest

But don't be afraid of loving

The one who makes you feel good

And don't hesitate to give 'em

Everything you feel like you should

'Cause when you love someone, nothing else matters

And those who make you feel right will be few

Love is dif'rent for everyone

Some people turn and run

And some of 'em are gonna wanna love you

Be on your guard not to misjudge

Another person's way of living

Don't be too quick to misunderstand

Another person's way of giving

But still you gotta know how to recognize

When someone just don't want you around

Don't break your heart going crazy over someone

Who's only gonna put you down

But if you love someone, let nothing else matter

An' always try to make 'em feel right

And if you can't accept the love of one

Ever turn away and run,

Find out why...if it takes all your life

She Comes To Me

My baby she's so beautiful

She would have tempted Jesus

She does just what she wants to do

And comes and goes as she pleases

She plays by her own rules

And she fools all the young fools

But when her foolin' around is through

She comes to me

My woman is so wicked

She makes Lolita look like a saint

Her momma calls her a harlot

She spends no time proovin' she ain't

She hypnotizes the boys like a witch

She doesn't care if you think she's a bitch

But when no one can scratch her itch

She comes to me

(bridge)

And I always take her back

And I always take her in

And I help cover up her tracks

And I always forgive her sins

My vixen's so voluptuous

She makes Marilyn look like a man

If anyone can get my life

Bet your life she can

She doesn't give me all of her time

I know I don't have her whole heart and mind

But when she needs someone to help her unwind

She comes to me

My lady she's so lovely

In her Frederick's of Hollywood gown

Last night I was watchin' her movin' 'round in that thing

And the cellar stairs I went tumblin' down

I just went flyin' and I smacked my head

She came a-shufflin' down to see if I was dead

And she hauled me on off to bed

Where she comes to me

Drawn To The Light

Heaven knows

I turned coincidence into accidence

Heaven knows

I let my scales be tipped by happenstance

I've been tossed by waves and pushed

by the passing of the masses

And in the darkness I

saw the light in flashes

How I settled for less so often

and got this far

Heaven knows

When I saw darkness

at the end of the tunnel

I crept like a thief in the night

Now I flow

Free of resistance

For I'm drawn to the light

When all I would make was noise

Silence was all I craved

Now I hear the sound of my own laughter

In harmony with the wave

White Boy (In a Colored World)

I'm just a white boy

in a colored world

Better wear some camouflage

Gotta find me a streetwise girl

Gotta learn just how to fit in

I can't afford to stick out

Don't feel like one of the guys

and there ain't no doubt

I'm just a white boy - white boy, white boy

in a colored world

I'm just a pale face

I feel so out of place

Like some kind of outsider

to the whole human race

Can't get nowhere with the girls

because I can't even dance

Wanna ask 'em out on the floor

but I don't dare take a chance

'Cause I'm just a white boy - white boy, white boy

in a colored world

(bridge)

You know I feel so outnumbered

in a crowd

And I'm screamin' inside 'cause I don't dare

to out loud

Seducing The Wind

It's an uphill climb

No one holds your safety line

You go it alone

And there's no other way to go

You don't follow tracks

And you don't look back

And nothing's in the way

over which the wind won't blow

So you do what the wind does

Even as the air thins out

You pick the path of least resistance

And you flow

(chorus 1)

There's no game plan

No precedent for playing to win

Intuition your only ally

When you're seducing the wind

(bridge)

Have you ever wondered

How birds follow each other in flight

Or how it is you've always

Found a way in the night?

The heart of the beholder

Imagines beauty into sight

There are none so blind

As those who will not feel the light

It's an uphill climb

No one holds your safety line

You go it alone

And there's no other way to go

(chorus 2)

There's no language

Listening to the heart within

Whispering in the din

Seducing the wind

Left-handed Girl

I fell in love with a left-handed girl

She's the one drivin' me crazy

She loves me and she loves me not

Like pickin' petals off a daisy

No, I wasn't jokin', but she treated me just like a fool

I fell in love with a left-handed girl

An' tried to play by right-handed rules

I fell in love with a brown-eyed woman

Underneath an October sky

She'd turn me on and she'd turn me off

I fell in love with her eyes

We could have gone the limit,

But it all happened on the fly

I fell in love with a left-handed girl

Flirtatious, but as reckless as I

(bridge)

I know that I have been a frivolous guy

An' I been caught with my fingers in the pie

But I had to lose a woman and I had to cry

And I can't accept it's just another time gone by

I fell in love with a left-handed girl

She wouldn't hold my hand in the park

She'd pick me up and she'd put me down

She'd only fool around in the dark

I didn't know I was dreamin',

But she soon shook me awake

I fell in love with a left-handed girl

Who took about all she could take

(bridge 2)

I been treated mean; I been treated cruel

And all the time thought I was nobody's fool

But I had to be so tough; I just had to be so cool

Each time I thought I'd learned them right, she'd change all the rules

Snow White

You go to see the rockman high on cocaine

You watch his ass; your old man knows you'd rather be backstage

And when he came off tired sweating hot, he would be yours

You'd give him cocaine loving and he'd give you encores

You drive too fast stoned at night on strange roads in the rain

You remember you feared and loved Snow White, much as you do cocaine

And when you came away angry and confused, you had been hers

You loved her look and wanted her love; she wanted too much first

(bridge)

Snow White, you could have had me sane

You had me crazy

Snow White, you kept me busy and hazy

I was exhausted

and gettin' lazy

You had to go your way

I had to take my place

You had to run your race

I needed to fill your space

Things were so much simpler before you became a star

When you had a chance to stand up there and just play your guitar

And when you came off sweating hot and tired, if they called for an encore

You knew you weren't just snow-blind, keeping up a snow white score

(repeat bridge)

Close Enough For The Blues

We never got close enough to fall in love

Though I know that's what we were try'n' to do

We never got close enough that we'll really miss

The things we got close enough to

Doing exactly the way

Exactly the way that we wanted to

But somehow

We got close enough for the blues

We never got close enough for you to be my baby

Or close enough it breaks my heart

That now even friendship is only a maybe

We never got close enough to keep from fallin' apart

I can't express to you some of

The things we never got close enough to

But somehow

We got close enough for the blues

bridge:

We never got close enough

To avoid the sadness

That lingers like stale perfume

We were just barely close enough

To get past the madness

That comes from bein' too close in too small rooms

We never got close enough

That you thought it might be

All of your dreams comin' true

But somehow, yeah baby, somehow

Somehow we got close enough for the blues

Hollywoodland

Got myself a place just up the road a piece

From where that famous actress bought the farm

Five more years of celluloid dreams

In the sunshine state; what could be the harm?

My closest friends are cacti

Or digital transmissions on the phone

(With the exception of brothers and sisters)

Still, my paper-thin walls make it a home

The mail comes by way of The Twilight Zone

And at Rock and Roll Ralph's it's always the same

The swimming pool filters generate electronic fields

That mess with my TV and I can't remember names.

But the weather is just the balls in Southern California,

So when it rains you've got to ask yourself why

You put up with the downside of life in Hollywoodland

And you're so alive that you could die

I mean the sirens never seem to stop

And all night long the choppers chop

And the all car chase channel is coming

Sure as I know my own name

So I filter all the noise to hear nothing but jazz

As I cruise down Sunset in my mid-fifties car

I see myself on the silver screen

And I work with people the world calls stars

And the weather is always just the balls in Southern California

So when people start hydroplaning into each other you wonder why

You put up with the downside of life in Hollywoodland

And you're so alive that you could die
