Outside The Rain 1/27/80 Sessions

#1

Heart skips a beat
Are you lonely
Of the night
It’s been almost your week
Love me only

Look at me for a very long time
Love is a word
I’m trying to learn
Words don’t matter at all
No, no

Verse

You would not stop
Till I answered
Your questions from the child ?

Verse

Almost rain
And the heart skips a beat
Lonely
Creature of the night
Almost a week
Minus…me

For a very long time
Long enough to fall
Trying to explain
Don’t matter
Matter at all

Look in my face
Touch my…
Baby
There’s no one
Look in my eyes
Won’t you touch my face
Nobody
Ever can replace that heartache
Replace that heartache

Chorus

Maybe it’s only a dream
I don’t wanna feel that
One more link in the chain
I don’t believe it

Verse

I’m a lady
Honest and true
You go by honesty
A rhapsody for you
I want my rhapsody too, as well

I gave all of my life
I gave all of my life to you
Since you would not stop

Sometimes
You said love was real blind
Many times
I cried for the loss of
And I pray that I’d forget it

So you ran away
From love
But to run
Wasn’t enough
So you ran away
From love
But to run now
Was not enough
So you ran away
From love
But to run…my friend
Is not enough
So you ran away
From love
But to run
It’s not enough
It’s not my own

You were so very much
As I searched for my home
Oh, but it’s hard
Hard to fight for your soul

Forces you to challenge your pain
To learn to just listen and be told
That you are crazy and you’re completely insane
Completely to blame

But my love was blind
And I liked it when it was only love
And I liked it when it was only love

 

#2

Outside the rain
Skips a beat
Are you lonely
Creature of the night
…most a week
Do you love me only

Look at me for a very long time
It’s long enough to fall
Love is a word
I’m trying to learn
Words don’t matter

Do do do…do
Ooh..

Stiletto cuts quick
Like a whip through the wind
And sometimes the darkness
And love was real blind
And we cried inside
Love was real blind
Cried for the lost love

Chorus

Maybe it’s only a game
I don’t wanna know that

Verse

Shadows of the lost
But not gone
Lost to the lovers
Who hung on

Like a whip through the wind
Just like a whip through the wind

With the faith of a child

 

#3

Outside the rain
Heart .. (cuts out)

And you could not help me
So you ran away from love

Outside the rain
Skip a beat
Lonely
Almost a week

But long enough to fall
Love is a…
…to believe
Don’t matter
Don’t matter at all

Half past one
Street lamps dark
Regard that person as you regard yourself
With the faith of a child
The sound of your voices
But you’ve given too much
Depend on us

Chorus

Maybe it’s only a dream
One more link in the chain

Though you space out the sun
Some devils may care

Nothing’ was fair

Shadows
Of the lost but not gone
Like a sailing ship
Is lost to the ones
Who hung on
I know better

Chorus

Verse

You would not stop
Done all your questions
Stiletto cuts quick
Like a whip through the wind
Like a whip through the wind
And that love was so blind
We cry for the lost love

Look at me
For a very long time
It’s long enough to fall
Love is a word
I’m trying to learn
Words don’t matter
Matter at all
No
It don’t matter at all

Ooh…na na
Da da
Da na na na
…is a chain

Do do do…do
So you feel lonely
Never did you know me
Darling one

…my eyes
Touch my face
Baby, there no one who could take my place
Look in my eyes
Touch my face
Baby…no one
Ever will erase that heartache

Shadows of the lost
But not gone
A sailing ship
Lost to the ones
Who hung on
Who hung on

 

#4

Outside the rain
…skips a beat
Are you lonely
Creature of the night
…a week
Could you love me only

Look at me
For a very long time
Long enough to fall
Love is a word
I’m trying not to learn
Well, word don’t
Matter at all

Okay, I’m going into a verse.

So I would love you
To believe to believe
Should say well it’s better to believe
