ALAN MERRILL - "ON A BLUE AVENUE" - LYRICS

On a Blue Avenue
I'm Daydreaming
Breaking The Chains
Enter The Night
This Love Is Forever
Intoxicated
Lay With Me
Competition
One More Heartache
Reaching Out To You
Your Love Song
Written On The Wind
You, Love & Me
Can't Live Without Love
Still There

"ON A BLUE AVENUE"

When I was young
The future was a maze
I spent my teens
Hiding in a smoky haze
Playing my guitar
You know I had my fun
Everything was new
I'd only just begun

This Blue Avenue
I've been travellng on
Is worth every mile I've gone

Time has a way
Of slipping by fast
Lovers and friends
They never seem to last
Walking on my own
The city is alseep
I take it to the bridge
This river runs so deep

This Blue Avenue
I've been traveling on
Is worth every mile I've gone

On a blue avenue
Say it again
On a blue avenue
All right now
On a blue avenue
I keep on searching for that dream
One a blue avenue
It's down there, somewhere
On a blue avenue

===========================

"I'M DAYDREAMING"

You were the only one I needed
And we never really had to try before
Somehow the meaning of a love gets lost
In these things we just can't face
In a truth we can't ignore

Now I find I'm daydreaming
Of love and better days
I'm waking up that time has slipped away

I remember times we had together
And it doesn't seem so very long ago
How can a love so strong just fade away
As hard as I try
I guess I'll never know

I find I'm daydreaming
Of love and better days
I'm waking up that time has slipped away

Now Im holding on for life
While I won't give up on us
My restless desire stays

And I find I'm daydreaming
Of love and better days
I'm waking up that time has slipped away
If you're lost within your dreaming
It costs what you can pay
Wake up before your time has slipped away
Daydreaming, daydreaming

===================

"BREAKING THE CHAINS"

I was waiting for you
You were waiting for me too
And nothing was happening
As far as I can see

We were locked in a dance
Slowly circling each other and romance
Like a couple of fighters
As far as I can see

Take your chances and roll the dice
Who knows now you might get lucky
A victim of your own device
I f you stay
Oh oh

I'm breaking the chains of love
I'm sorry but I can't go on
I'm breaking the chains of love
You can't hold me down
Those days are over and gone

We were playing a game
No two players can play it the same
No one comes out a winner
As far as I can see

Take your chances and roll the dice
Who knows now you might get lucky
A victim of your own device
If you stay
Oh oh

I'm breaking the chains of love
I'm sorry but I can't go on
I'm breaking the chains of love
You can't hold me down
Those days are over and gone

I'm breaking the chains, oh oh
I'm breaking the chains, oh oh
I'm breaking the chains, oh oh
I'm breaking the chains, oh oh

===========================

"ENTER THE NIGHT"

There's a place in the city
In the heart of the town
Where the beautiful people play
While the world goes 'round

I'll be out until the morning
Red eyed sunrise
With a new day dawning
One more lady gets the prize
Ooh yeah

Here I go again going to enter the night
Where the party never ends
Here I go again, makes me feel all right
To enter the night

I know a place way downtown
If you want to have some fun
The drinks and the girsl go 'round
'til the morning sun

There's no rain on my parade
I can't put a foot wrong
It's my midnight serenade
And it's my song! Ooh yeah!

Here I go again going to enter the night
Where the party never ends
Here I go again makes me feel all right
To enter the night
Here I go again
Where the party never ends
Here I go again, I'm going to enter the night

=========================================


"THIS LOVE IS FOREVER"

With each passing day it seems to get harder
To deal with the simplest things
When nothing goes right
Fate deals the wrong cards
Who knows what the future will bring

But there's one ray of sun
That brightens my world
Let it be rain or shine
Lights up my life right through the darkest clouds
To know that her passion is mine

I only know when we're together
This love is forever
And it's going to last I'll bet you
This love is forever

I pack up my guitar
To play one more show
Sometimes I think
What is the use?
With my royalties due, I try to get paid
They give me that same old excuse

But she lifts me up
Dusts off the dirt
With kisses that feel so right
Nobody else ever felt quite like this
I'm flying on love every night

I only know when we're together
This love is forever
And it's going to last, I'll bet you
This love is forever

I only know when we're together
This love is forever
And it's going to last, I'll bet you
This love is forever

=====================================

"INTOXICATED"

I'm looking for some fun in Soho Friday night
I have another drink and I'm starting to feel all right
I know what I want and what I've got to get
I'm hanging on in but I ain't seen her yet
My heart skips a beat when she sashays by
An 11 out of 10
And my oh my I'm..

Intoxicated
I'm gonna have a real good time
Intoxicated
Tonight I'm getting out of my mind


She walks up to me
Much to my surprise
Not saying a word
Just staring right in my eyes
Easy as pie, prime for the picking
I'm making my move 'cos the clock keeps ticking
High as a kite, up on a wing
No time to lose I got to have everything, she's..

Intoxicated
I'm gonna have a real good time
Intoxicated
Tonight I'm getting out of my mind

solo

Intoxicated
We're gonna have a real good time
Intoxicated
Tonight we're getting out of our minds
Intoxicated


============================


"LAY WITH ME"

I'm going to turn the lights down low
Put romantic music on the stereo
I need you like you'll never know
Here tonight

All the time that I've been loving you
All the crazy things you put me throughl
There is nothing we can say or do
To make it right

Come on and lay with me darling
'Til morning arrives
This could be the last time
Our love is alive
Stay with me honey
While passion survives
Lay with me darling one last time

I want to feel like making love all night

So wear that sexy dress, the one that fits you tight
We can try champagne and candlelight
When I see you

Come on and lay with me darling
'Til morning arrives
This could be the last time
Our love is alive
Stay with me honey
While passion survives
Lay with me darling one last time

=========================

"COMPETITION"

Now they say it's all fair
Be it love, be it warl
And you do what you can
To open the door
I have had confrontation
People standing in my way
But when push comes to shoving
I have my day

In a game called competiton
I'm winning the fight
Competition, everything's all rightl
Competition
Down at the bottom line
I'm doing just fine

It gets hard under pressure
Sometimes out of control
Love is put to the test of the soul
There are days we must struggle
Force our will to survive
Got to eat
Or get swallowed alive

In a game called competiton
I'm winning the fight
Competition, everything's all rightl
Competition
Down at the bottom line
I'm doing just fine

============================

"ONE MORE HEARTACHE"

Falling in love's a tricky little thing
When the passion's alive
she's high on the wing
Flying too high
So he shoots her down
She's crushed to the bone
In pieces on the ground

One more heartache
She feels like she don't want to carry on
One more heartache
Love Is Gone

Nobody knows the right thing to do
You deal with it when
It happens to you
Everyone tries to make it right
But she'll be at home
All alone tonight

One more heartache
She feels like she don't want to carry on
One more heartache
Love Is Gone

==================================

"REACHING OUT TO YOU"

We play a game
That we could both be winning
Take a look and use your common sense
It's such a shame
When were were just beginning
To always end up sitting on a fence

I'm reaching out to you
What else can I do?
Hoping you'll come through
I'm reaching out to you

The times are tough
Can't see it getting better
It seems there's always one more hill to climb
I've had enough
So I'm writing you this letter
To try to win your loving
One more time

I'm reaching out to you
What else can I do?
Hoping you'll come through
I'm reaching out to you


====================================

"YOUR LOVE SONG"

You are my light
Without you I couldn't see my way
It's my dream that you'll always feel
The same as today

You brought the sun
When skies were dark and I had none
If you fall and need someone too
I'll be there for you

I want to sing you a love song
Give you a song that's your own
I want to sing you a love song
To keep inside your heart
(This is your love song) As your own
(This is your love song) It's your song

Oh I was down
You came along and you brought me around
I'd been searching for so long
Then love wrote this song

I want to sing you a love song
Give you a song that's your own
I want to sing you a love song
To keep inside your heart
(This is your love song) As your own
(This is your love song) It's your song


============================================


"WRITTEN ON THE WIND"

Strange and slow
I hear an ebb and flow
The circle turns around
And lightly touches down

Voices ring
In harmony they sing
A sound that peals and weaves
Through the dry autumn leaves

There are no words to describe the feeling
It's lost
An echo in church reeling
It's lost
On the stain glass ceiling

It's a song
Written on the wind
Just a song
Written on the wind

Twelve strings chime
They jangle in time
Across the starry sky
Notes scatter and fly

There are no words
To describe the feeling
It's lost
An echo in church reeling
It's lost
On the stain glass ceiling

It's a song
Written on the wind
Just a song
Written on the wind

==============================

"YOU, LOVE & ME"


You can't stop the sun from shining
In the summer sky
You can't stop the seasons changing
Long as time goes by

There's one thing that I know
Will always be the same
Something I can count on not to change

You, love & me
We've got a chance, let's take it
You, love & me
I know that we can make it

You can't stop the leaves from falling
When the weather's cool
You can't stop the kids from singing
Coming home from school

The songs are in the air
They last a little while
But what we have
Is timelessly in style

You, love & me
We've go a chance, let's take it
You, love & me
I know that we can make it
You, love & me

==================================


"CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT LOVE"

My baby please stay with me
Until the morning sunrise
I'll show you that I love you
Can't you see it in my eyes
All the time that I thought
Love was only a fantasy
There were lost and lonely hours
The empty evenings were not for me

I can't live without love
I need it every day
I can't live without love
Let you loving show me the way

Now maybe you're somebody who can give me a love so strong
And I know you've been needing more than passion
To last for long
In a world that's growing colder
When it rains it tends to pour
We both need so much more

You can't live without love
You need it every day
You can't live without love
Let my loving show you the way

The time has come to say I love you
Though my song may not be long
You know it's true

We can't live without love
We need it every day
We can't live without love
Let our loving show us the way

I can't live without love
I need it every day
I can't live without love
Let my loving show you the way

==============================

"STILL THERE"


You're feeling bad from that old affair
And pretending you just don't care at all
When something inside your heart
Says it's still there

There's no more hope when your hope is gone
'Cos you've been reaching out for someone, somewhere
When something inside your heart says it's still there

No one can help you
Though everybody tries
Their intentions are true
But nothing satisfies
That hollow feeling
It keeps ringing like a bell
Friends don't seem to help
Though they all mean well
Only time is gonna tell

You're feeling bad from that old affair
And pretending you just don't care at all
When something inside your heart
Says it's still there
Yeah it's still there
It's still there
