upFaded Fame
(Hans Theessink)
Have you seen that man - walking on his own
When darkness lies heavy on the ground
A restless look in his eyes as he slowly moves on by

Talking to himself - the only friend around
They say he used to be a singer - they say he used to be real good
Now a railway station is his home
He'll try to catch your eye - bum some money as you pass on by

To buy a ride on a train that's nowhere bound
Who will cheer a fallen king - and a voice that doesn't sing
When the show is over and the crowd has gone
What is in a name - what good is faded fame

Another train - leaving town
He once was flyin' high - his limit was the sky
When you're up there it's a long way to the ground
Poisoned blood running through his veins - all that's left is a craving pain
And a fix before the evening sun goes down

Who will cheer a fallen king...
How can a man - get back on his feet again
When he's chased up with his back against the wall
I wonder if he can - spread his wings and fly again
Kick the habit that has brought him to his fall
Who will cheer a fallen king...
upDidn't we try
(Hans Theessink)
TONIGHT I'M DRIVING IN MY CAR
TONIGHT I KNOW I'M GOING FAR
DARKNESS ALL AROUND ME
FOLLOWING THAT WHITE LINE
PICTURES IN THE REARVIEW MIRROR
ALL THE THINGS I LEAVE BEHIND
MEMORIES OF BETTER DAYS
KEEP COMING TO MY MIND

DIDN'T WE TRY BABE
DIDN'T WE TRY HARD
I KNOW THAT WE'VE DRIFTED APART
DIDN'T WE TRY

DO YOU REMEMBER LONG TIME AGO
WE WERE AT THE PICTURE-SHOW
SITTING IN THE LAST ROW
HOLDING HANDS

YOU MOVED CLOSELY UP TO ME
SAID: I WANT YOU FOR ETERNITY
I WANT TO BE YOUR WOMAN
AND I WANT YOU FOR MY MAN

DIDN'T WE TRY BABE
DIDN'T WE TRY HARD
I KNOW THAT WE'VE DRIFTED APART
DIDN'T WE TRY

ON THE DAY YOU PROMISED ME YOUR HAND
I GAVE YOU A WEDDING-BAND
LOVE WAS HERE TO STAY
WHEN WE DANCED THE NIGHT AWAY

OH - I FELT SO PROUD THEN
TO HOLD YOU AND TO BE YOUR MAN
WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY
SINCE THAT WEDDING-DAY

DIDN'T WE TRY BABE
DIDN'T WE TRY HARD
I KNOW THAT WE'VE DRIFTED APART
DIDN'T WE TRY

TONIGHT I'M DRIVING IN MY CAR...
