Michael Johnson - YOU CAN CALL ME BLUE Lyrics


You Can Call Me Blue
By Larry Brown & David Morgan

Well I'm not a foolish man but I'm half out of my head
Sitting here remembering the foolish things I said
Here nobody knows me, nobody asks my name
But it doesn't really matter 'cause it feels about the same

(Chorus)
You can call me blue, you can call me untrue
You can call me wrong even if the love is gone
You can call me friend till the very end
Anytime you got an extra dime, call me sometime

Well I really let you down and I watched you rise above
Now I'm trying to get used to not believing in your love
I'm sitting here remembering, trying to drink away my tears
But the dreams won't die easy, I'll be dreaming them for years

Chorus

Could've called me fool, you should've called me mad
But you didn't have to call if off, you made me feel so bad

Chorus



After You
By Andy Goldmark & Jim Ryan

I still dream of yesterday, when it almost all came true
We were living in a world with no goodbyes
And as your laughter fades away, I still reach out for you
How I'd ever let your love just slip right by

(Chorus)
After you, there's too many hours in the day
Too many minutes I get lost in your memory
After you, there's too much silence in the night
Too much staying up alone, after you

Must be something I can say to find a way to change your mind
Though we really need to give it one more try
Guess I just got lazy in love, you gotta keep that spark alive
I can't believe I let that fire die

Chorus

You know I watch the blue light of every dawn
The day begins but the night lives on

Chorus



Savin' It Up
By Randy Goodrum

There've been lots of other girls since I first met you
But they haven't meant a thing at all
'Cause I met you, girl
Well that something deep inside of me that you can have so easily
Is waiting for you, only for you

I've been savin' it up for a long time, baby
Building it up till it's higher than the sky
I've been savin' all my love for you
All my love for you

There've been lots of pretty words I should have told you
But I let you slip right through my hands
And if I told you, girl
Well I'd have you standin' next to me but words don't come so easily
So if you give me one more chance, I'll show you, only you

I've been savin' it up for a long time, baby
Building it up till it's higher than the sky
I've been savin' all my love for you
All my love for you

I've been savin' it up ever since I met you
Hoping that luck will somehow make you mine
I've been savin' all my love for you
All my love



You, You, You
Words by Dean Pitchford, Music by Tom Snow

I was so full of hope, I was so full of plans
I was so sure you'd love me back, take me for your man
And I had so much love and I had so much time
I was sure you'd come around
How could I know you're not the kind

Oh you, you, you, you, what did I ever do
To hurt you, you, you, oh you
Listen to my tears, they're crying for one who never hears
They're crying for someone, you know who, it's you, it's you

I thought I had your heart, I thought I had a chance
I'd stand in line in freezing rain just to watch you dance
I thought you knew my name, I thought you liked my face
I held your coat, I held your hand
I thought that you would hold my place

Oh you, you, you, you, what did I ever do
To hurt you, you, you, oh you
Listen to my tears, they're crying for one who never hears
They're crying for someone, you know who, it's you,

I can't get to sleep at night
Tears have made me blind
I just stay awake
With only one thing on my mind

Oh you, you, you, you, what did I ever do
To hurt you, you, you, oh you
Listen to my tears, they're crying for one who never hears
They're crying for someone, you know who

It's you, you, you ...



Blame It on the Rain
By Eric Kaz & Tom Snow

Call it a day, throw your memories away
You got your reasons and I got mine
Don't waste your time while you're still in your prime
But I can't keep on flying blind

Let's blame it on the rain, not the flowers and champagne
You always wanted just the best; take the finest, leave the rest
And blame it on the rain, we just never felt the same
Guess I couldn't say I knew what love has meant to you
So leave me the sadness and the pain
And blame it on the rain

These tears only fall whenever you call
But I never intended to let them show
I'll pack my sorrow, think of tomorrow
'Cause love may come and love may go

Let's blame it on the rain, not the flowers and champagne
You always wanted just the best; take the finest, leave the rest
And blame it on the rain, we just never felt the same
Guess I couldn't say I knew what love has meant to you
So leave me the sadness and the pain
And blame it on the rain

Let's blame it on the rain, not the flowers and champagne
You always wanted just the best; take the finest, leave the rest
And blame it on the rain, we just never felt the same
Guess I couldn't say I knew what love has meant to you
Let's blame it on the rain...



Right Through the Heart
By Robert Byrne

Baby goes for prettier boys
With shinier toys that make the most noise
The way you look you could easily afford
Slam your door on any given night's score

Win the world with womanly wiles
Flip your hair, flash a smile
Get what you want till you don't want what you got
Baby be a deadly shot

You got me right through the heart
Well you got me right through the heart
You got me right through the heart
But you'll get it right smack back through the middle of your heart

Sometime when you're feeling alone
Won't you throw me a bone and answer your phone
When you're free, you can come and see me
Anytime you feel the need you wanna watch me bleed

If the world ever puts you on trial
Flip your hair, flash a smile
Get what you want till you don't want what you got
Baby be a deadly shot

You got me right through the heart
Well you got me right through the heart
Well you got me right through the heart
But you'll get it right smack back through the middle of your heart



Don't Ask Why
By Bill LaBounty & R. Freeland

Ask me any kind of question, anything you wanna know
Tell you all about my lovers, heartaches and laughter
From a long time ago

Ask me if I'm finally happy, I've never really been before
Ever since you happened to me, I've told all my secrets
I don't have any more

Ask me now and I won't tell a lie
Ask me how I've been feeling inside
But when somebody loves you and you know that it's true
Don't ask why

Ask me if I really mean it when I tell you I love you
Ask me will I please repeat it
I'll tell you forever if you want me to

Ask me now and I won't tell a lie
Ask me how I've been feeling inside
But when somebody loves you
And you know that it's true, don't ask why
Don't ask why
Don't ask why



Staying With It
By Tom Snow & John Lewis Parker

This is it, this is what I've waited for so long
Starting now, gotta trust these feelings coming on
Take a chance even though I feel like I should run

Staying with it, let my heart take me there
Got a feeling, ooh I'm getting somewhere
Deep in it and I really do care
Wait a minute now, oh don't walk out

I can see, I can see your disbelieving eyes
Don't you know holding back your love is so unwise
Take a chance, ain't it time you took a lover's stand

Staying with it, let my heart take me there
Got a feeling, ooh I'm getting somewhere
Deep in it and I really do care
Wait a minute now, oh don't walk out



You Sure Fooled Me
By Cynthia Weil & Tom Snow

I must have been too good to be true
So trusting and so naive
You must have laughed when you said I love you
And I honestly did believe

The night I whispered don't be afraid
I could've sworn it was love we made

Baby, you sure fooled me
Had me going right up to the end
Baby, you sure fooled me
But I bet you no one's ever gonna fool me again

I thought you shared the feelings I felt
From the very first time we kissed
But you were just amusing yourself
Adding one more heart to your list

I never thought I could be so dumb
But you were just as smooth as they come

Baby, you sure fooled me
Had me going right up to the end
Baby, you sure fooled me
But I bet you no one's ever gonna fool me again

The night I whispered don't be afraid
I could've sworn it was love we made

Baby, you sure fooled me
Had me going right up to the end
Baby, you sure fooled me
But I bet you no one's ever gonna fool me again



Empty Hearts
By Michael McDonald

Are you leaving, are you going
Did you think you could lose that feeling without me knowing

Are you wishing you'd never met me
Does it just take a train whistle blowing to forget me

All the losing and the knowing but you love her still
Could be nothing to what empty hearts must feel

Are you leaving, are you going
Did you think you could lose that feeling
Without me knowing

All the losing and the knowing, but you love her still
Could be nothing to what empty hearts must feel
Tell me what an empty heart must feel

Are you leaving, are you going
Are you leaving, are you going
