Michael Johnson - THE MICHAEL JOHNSON ALBUM Lyrics


Sailing Without a Sail
By Bill LaBounty & R. Freeland

In the dark of the night something magic
In the words that you breathe in my ear
Let the highway unwind
Get me lost, love me blind

Take me sailing without any sail
Rolling without a rail
Traveling on a mysterious trail with you

There's a spark in your touch when we're dancing
And the light in your eyes seems to say
I don't care where we go
Take me fast, take me slow

Take me sailing without any sail
Rolling without a rail
Traveling on a mysterious trail with you

I don't care where we go
Take me fast, take me slow

Take me sailing without any sail
Rolling without a rail
Traveling on a mysterious trail with you
Take me sailing, take me rolling
Take me traveling on a mysterious trail with you



Foolish
By Tom Snow

If I've treated you bad and I've acted unkind
It must be that my heart is getting fooled by my mind
'Cause how could I lose
What took me so long to find

Sometime I get foolish
Act like I ain't got no sense
I get real foolish
And now my back's against the fence
I'm out here before you
Waiting on your call
I'm just a fool and that's all

Got the blues in my head
Got my heart in my hand
On a string of apologies, baby where do I stand
I'd give anything to hear you say you understand

Sometime I get foolish
Act like I ain't got no sense
I get real foolish
And now my back's against the fence
I'd give anything to hear you say you understand
I'm just a fool, foolish man



Dancin' Tonight
By Bill LaBounty & Michael Johnson

Don't waste time, it's now or never
The girl won't stay at home forever
It's time you treat her right
The lady wants to got out

Dancin' tonight, under the lights
You'd better romance her tonight, she wants to go dancin'

So don't be late, that moon is rising
All that neon's hypnotizin'
Don't wait around too long
She'll find someone to take her

Dancin' tonight, under the lights
You'd better romance her tonight, she wants to go dancin'

She takes you someplace where the blues don't last
And colors change beneath the floor
She tells the band to play her something fast
She's holding out her hand
Don't blow your only chance to take her

Dancin' tonight, under the lights
You'd better romance her tonight, she wants to go dancin'



Two in Love
By Mark Henley

Two in love, life is worth living
Two in love, takes all your giving
And you let it show and everyone knows
When you are two in love

Once in a while, life surprises you
Turns a gray day into blue
The sun shines for you
When you are two in love

Hold on tight, love is kite in the wind
Looking for wings
Pulling the strings of your heart
From the very start you were

Two in love, holding one another
Two in love, making room for the other
And you let it show and everyone knows
When you are two in love

Hold on tight, love is kite in the wind
Looking for wings
Pulling the strings of your heart
From the very start you were

Two in love, life is worth living
Two in love, takes all your giving
And you let it show and everyone knows
When you are two in love



Ridin' in the Sky
By Crow Johnson

Which way's the wind, how hard does it blow
Up over the hill and away we go

Ridin' in the sky
You never wanna come down
You never wanna touch the ground
Somehow mother nature's gonna bring you back down

Sky surfer, ridge rider, latest thing to try
Don't give a damn for our hot-dogging gliders
I just wanna fly, wanna fly

Feel the lift coming off of that rise
You're moving up, can't believe your eyes

Ridin' in the sky
You never wanna come down
You never wanna touch the ground
And you wonder how mother nature's
Gonna bring you back down

Friends and parents think you've lost your mind
They think you wanna die
Some have crashed and burned before their time
But I just wanna fly, wanna fly

Check all the lines, the sail's okay
Helmet on, here comes your day



Bluer Than Blue
By Randy Goodrum

After you go, I can catch up on my reading
After you go, I'll have a lot more time for sleeping
And when you're gone, looks like things are gonna be a lot easier
Life will be a breeze, you know
I really should be glad

But I'm bluer than blue, sadder than sad
You're the only light this empty room has ever had
Life without you is gonna be bluer than blue

After you go, I'll have a lot more room in my closet
After you go, I'll stay out all night long if I feel like it
And when you're gone, I can run through the house screaming
And no one will ever hear me
I really should be glad

But I'm bluer than blue, sadder than sad
You're the only light this empty room has ever had
Life without you is gonna be bluer than blue

I don't have to miss no TV shows
I can start my whole life over
Change the numbers on my telephone
But the nights will sure be colder

And I'm bluer than blue, sadder than sad
You're the only light this empty room has ever had
Life without you is gonna be bluer than blue
Bluer than blue
Bluer than blue



Almost Like Being in Love
By Alan Jay Lerner & Frederick Loewe

What a night this has been
What a rare mood I'm in
Why it's almost like being in love

There's a smile on my face
For the whole human race
I could swear that I'm falling in love

And the music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me

From the way that I feel
Can't believe this is real
And it's almost like being in love

And the music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me

From the way that I feel
Can't believe this is real
And it's almost like being in love

What a night, what a rare mood

Falling in love, falling in love
Like I'm falling in love



Twenty-Five Words or Less
By Bill LaBounty & R. Freeland

I like springtime flowers that grow along the lane
I like sunshine showers and walking in the rain
I like a three day weekend and Sundays at the zoo
And in 25 words or less I'll tell you why I like you

You got the sensational smile, irresistible eyes
Oh but the fascinatin' thing about you
Is you look lonesome too

I like a wet martini but I take my whiskey neat
I like toast and honey cause that makes my morning sweet
I like a nightclub after hours, I like a Coleman Hawkins blues
And in 25 words or less I'll tell you why I like you

You got the sensational smile, irresistible eyes
Oh but the fascinatin' thing about you
Is you look lonesome too

I like a tropical island, I play my ukulele in the lagoon
I climb up the coconut tree and hula-hula with the local baboon
I like milkshakes, cupcakes, clambakes, sweepstakes, lazy afternoons
And in 25 words or less, I'll tell you why I like you

Cause you got the sensational smile, irresistible eyes
Oh but the fascinatin' thing about you
Is you look lonesome, I'm so lonesome
You look lonesome too



Gypsy Woman
By Curtis Mayfield

Drifting through a caravan around the campfire light
Lovely woman in motion, hair as dark as night
With eyes that shine like a cat in the dark
That hypnotized me with love

She was a gypsy woman
She was a gypsy woman
She was a gypsy woman, woman

She danced around and around to guitars and melodies
From the fire her face is all aglow, how she enchanted me
Oh how I'd love to hold her near and kiss and forever whisper in her ear

I love you, gypsy woman
I love you, gypsy woman
I love you, gypsy woman, woman

All through the caravan, she was dancing with all the men
Waiting for the rising sun just to tell her that I'm the one
Hate to see the lady go, knowing she may never know
That I love her, yes I love her

I love my gypsy woman
I love my gypsy woman
I love my gypsy woman, woman



When You Come Home
By Eric Kaz & Tom Snow

When you come home, fire'll be burning deep inside my heart
I've been a fool, I never knew what missing you could put me through
When you come home, I'm going show you how I really feel
I can't believe I ever let you go, the truth is hard to show
And darling, you should know

And now I tell myself that loving you is all I wanna do
I'd give anything just to have you back again
'Cause I can't make it on my own, feel I'm sinking like a stone
Oh rescue me, darling please come home

And now I tell myself that loving you is all I wanna do
I'd give anything just to have you back again
'Cause I can't make it on my own, feel I'm sinking like a stone
Oh rescue me, darling please come home
Darling please come home
Darling please come home
