Chorus Will you love me again? Call you my friend into your home once again I'll give you the time of night and the time of day will you love me again? Verse 1 I remember that morning Tired eyes you were yawning As the rain came thumpin down You shared with me a cigarette Now It’s something that I don’t regret But now everyday drags to long Verse 2 Like a shower on a sunny day Or a pearl on a ravaged bay Love took us both, by surprise We laughed and loved through dark and bright Felt her breath in that morning light Oh to look into those eyes again Chorus Will you love me again? Call you my friend into your home once again I'll give you the time of night and the time of day Will you love me again? Verse 3 Every blade a grass a memory Every bird sang its melody As I hastened up to knock on her door Butterflies began to mumble My knees began to crumble As somebody said who you looking for Verse 4 Well I got a fright I nearly died and I let out an awful sigh As a little boy crept up behind me I turned to look and to my surprise Was the flame of that morning’s eyes And I knew it was, time to leave Chorus Would you love me again? Call you my friend into my home once again I'll give you the time of night and the time of day will you love me again? Bridge Hidden in the road Was some difference that told It’s got me wondering why? Chorus Will you love me again? Call you my friend into your home once again I'll give you the time of night and the time of day If I come back baby Will you love me again? If I come back baby Will you love me again? If I come back baby Will you love me again?

Verse 1 I see the place where we last met it's one of those places I will never forget We'd skip a stone from our Rock Throne Two young lovers at the end of the road Chorus It was a arm bright Shiny day We both sat by the river time it flowed and rippled away the wind it gently wispered to me Verse 2 I shuffled up to kiss her check I felt a lump in my throat I could barely speak She didnt respond she just left me to guess I thought I made a terrible mess Chorus It was a warm bright shiny day We both sat by the river time it flowed and rippled away the wind it gently whispered to me Verse 3 Sometimes in life you gotta' take a chance sometimes in life you cant find romamce will our two paths ever cross again? Well I've lost a love and i've lost a friend Chorus It was a arm bright Shiny day We both sat by the river time it flowed and rippled away the wind it gently wispered to me

Help me mama help me papa I got a mean old woman who is trying to stop me From walkin out my door and stomping on my floor all night Well life was good but it spit in my face and then it leaved without a trace and you wonder why I'm playing the blues Come on Tell me why I can't stop cryin'? Tell Me, when will the world stop lying? Tell me, why i can't stop playing these blues? Mama said; "behind every cloud there's a brand new sun, And behind every day, there's another one. Don't give up boy it'll all be better someday. Well now, life was good, but it spit in my face and then it leaved without a trace and you wonder why I'm playing these blues Come on Tell me why I can't stop cryin'? Tell Me, when will the world stop lying? Tell me, why i can't stop playing these blues?

Ho wmuch more time can you buy? How much longer until you see the light? How much more time can you find? if only you could rewind. So Buddy Run Until Your time has come Buddy Run, Until your time has come Sometimes you made people cry Sometimes you couldn't stop a lie But I'll try to always understand Why you keep falling out of hand So Buddy Run Until Your time has come Buddy Run, Until your time has come I'll always see through you your a good man deep down I'll get them to understand And one day you'll have the upper hand Cause you're an honest decent man a loving family man Wrap your troubles up inside a box and throw them off into the docks and like a river you will flow into society I know give it time boy, You'll be alright, Won't you give it a try? So Buddy Run Until Your time has come Buddy Run, Until your time has come

Get gone she smiled Haven't you heard the news? You cannot chose those long time blues Get on your style well you cannot be laughing all the time at your misery It's on tonight Get your figures right, this mighty fight could treat our pockets right Get over yourself I think you need help, your guitar aint swinging and that singing aint singing alright. Sometimes I feel Like theres nothing to feel I go to work each day just to pay my bills Sometimes I wonder Could I change my life, and copy all the people I admire and like Like Chuck E Weiss Well his life seemed kind of nice But I think I'd lik eit if Jones picked me instead of Waits.

about

Hubert Murray OY, Ireland

Lost in a house of mix-tapes and stacks of old blues and folk records, he sifted through each one, de-composing their lyrics and melodies. What became was a raconteur with a voice bursting from the soul. Hubert's songs feature lost loves, inner demons, compulsive liars & day dreamers. ... more
