Lyrics to Yours And Not Yours

1. SOMEWHERE NORTH OF THE SKY
(George Usher/Edward Rogers)

One more night, one more day
One more light shining a world away-

What goes up must come down
Must be lost under the lights in the center of town-

Love is always waiting Somewhere north of the sky Love is always waiting Somewhere north of the sky, north of the sky-

No more time, no more tears
No more loss after a dream disappears-

(chorus)

I don’t need to be forgiven I don’t need to be afraid I don’t mind if I’m forgotten I don’t need a fool’s parade-

One more night, one more day
One more light shining a world full of wonder away-

(chorus)

2. LOVE BY ANY OTHER NAME
(George Usher)

This is how it ends
I don’t even know who to blame
All I have is love by any other name-

When I look around
I don’t have a memory to claim
All I have is love by any other name-

I had a dream
But I can’t recall
What happened at all
What morning stole away-

That’s the way it goes
I was sound asleep when winter came
All I have is love by any other name-

I whisper her name
But one thing is clear
She’ll never hear
I’m standing all alone-

Time will only tell
If the world will ever be the same
All I have is love by any other name-

3. THE STRANGER CAME
(George Usher)

All the leaves had fallen down
And covered every inch of ground
But what was lost could still be found
Before the stranger came-

And then I saw the change in you
It only took a kiss or two
But there was nothing I could do
The day the stranger came-

And over night the world we knew
Didn’t have a place for you
That little corner all our own
Wasn’t the same when I was there alone-

Well, love may come and go before
It ever finds an open door
But I loved you and little more
Until the stranger came-

And thought the wind can never tell
How it takes away so well
I will always wonder why
Darkness always falls from a clear, blue sky-

If I could go home again
No matter what, no matter when
I’d want it like it was back then
Before the stranger came-

4. PUT IT OUT OF YOUR MIND
(George Usher)

I didn’t know what to do, where to go
When you turned around and told me you were leaving
I couldn’t see what was wrong, could it be
I was blind and you were lonely all long?

Oh, baby please, put it out of your mind
I can’t bear to live without you anymore
I understand, baby please, take my hand
And leave all this behind
Put it out of your mind-

I never heard what you said, not a word
You’ve been lost, I guess, I never really listened
I wish I knew what to say, I promise you
I’d do anything to have you back again-

Oh baby please, put it out of your mind
I can’t bear to live without you anymore
I’d never lie, baby please, let me try
Don’t be so resigned
Put it out of your mind-

5. JERICHO’S MISTRESS
(George Usher/Dave Schramm)

Will you help share the burden
Of what I’ve become
I’m standing behind a curtain
And I don’t know where I’m from If you hear me, I’ll be lying But it’s how I wish it was Don’t come near me or you’ll be crying The way a mistress does-

If you have my name and number
Will you know who I am
I suppose it makes you wonder
If you’ll ever understand But the moon in the river Has a life all its own And the love that I give you Will remain when you’re alone-

Jericho, I hear you weeping
Through the rain when it falls
And I know soon, I will be sleeping
Beneath your broken walls-

6. JUST A STORY
(George Usher)

I know it’s hard for you to believe in me
Long nights I’m lost and wandering aimlessly
It’s been weeks since I saw your face
And this lonely place is cold
I can’t forget how you held me then
It’s just a story better left untold-

Baby, you’ll never know what I can’t explain
I’ve got a lot to lose, maybe more to gain
Everything I said to you
Was the truth, no, I never lied
Sometimes I pretend you didn’t go
I can feel you somewhere deep inside-

Maybe it doesn’t matter Maybe it’s only rain in May Maybe it never happened Maybe it’s only moments away-

Sometimes I wish I knew why I feel this way
Seems like there’s always some kind of price to pay
Ever since you left I’ve tried to keep
Any magic I could hold
I don’t know if this is really love
Or just a story better left untold-

7. I WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING
(George Usher/Edward Rogers)

Time has come between us once again
I never know why, I never know when
Broken moments taken on their own
All fade away if we’re alone-

And I would have done anything I would have done anything I would have done anything To be the one who makes you happy-

Love has always been a cruel surprise
I never know how to open your eyes
All the fortune handed down by fate
Will never forgive, will always come late-

(chorus)

I would have done anything
I came down to be around
I would have done anything
But half the time you weren’t even mine-

Time has come between us once again
I never know why, I never know when-

But I would have done anything I would have done anything I would have done anything This is what I know is true I only want to be with you I would have done anything I would have done anything I would have done anything To be the one who makes you happy-

8. UNFORGIVABLE SIN
(George Usher)

Mary, have you seen Marie sitting in the garden?
Do you think what waits for me is somewhere deep within
An unforgivable sin?

Call a day another night, call a day tomorrow
Call it wrong or call it right, I’m dancing in the wind
Of an unforgivable sin-

And if I fail while I’m trying
To open a cold heart with kindness
I’ll leave you to laugh at my blindness-
But I’ll always remember
What is meant by a turn in the river
I’m lost even when I am with her-

Climb the tower, ring the bell
Give the world a morning
Give the world a tale to tell
Love is living in
An unforgivable sin
An unforgivable sin-

9. IS THERE SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SAY?
(George Usher)

Early was a little more like being late
Thursday’s valentines were dangling from a string
There wasn’t any time to celebrate
You were waiting for the telephone to ring-

Is there something you want to say? Now that all this time has passed You can speak your mind at last I don’t know how you walked away Without a word No whispered goodbye You disappeared and I never knew why-

I was only looking for a better way
When the lights along the avenue went out
And while I tried to find somewhere to stay
You were busy filling up on all the doubt-

(chorus)

Early was a little more like being late
Thursday’s valentines were dangling from a string-

10. WHERE IS YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL?
(George Usher)

Here you go again
Holding me too tight
You must realize, then,
I will be gone come light-

How could you believe
Love was more than this?
More than waiting to leave?
More than a goodbye kiss?

Where is your guardian angel, baby When you’re beginning to cry? Where is your guardian angel, baby When you’re going to hear one more goodbye?

Here is all I have
You can call it yours
Babe, it won’t be so bad
After you’ve closed the door-

(chorus)

Hey, have you heard all the fairy tales you want to hear?
Those you hold most dear leave you uncertain
If you want a mystery lover here and gone again
You’ll still be the one to bear the burden-

Who can even say
What it is to be
Lost and drifting away
Into an empty sea?

Where is your guardian angel, baby When you’re beginning to cry? Where is your guardian angel, baby? Don’t ask why Everything you’ve ever wanted, baby Rides on the back of a lie Where is your guardian angel, baby When you’re going to hear one more goodbye?

11. COMEDY OF ERRORS
(George Usher)

Gone before the hours of morning
Gone before the hours of the cross
Gone before the ring ever tumbled
Gone before the hour of my darkest loss-

A comedy of errors Drunken games of musical chairs Like I told you A comedy of errors-

Now and then the heart calls a river
What it is, a long line of tears
What it took for me to deliver
Soon became a drama that went on for years-

(chorus)

But I’ll always love you, I’ll always love you-

(chorus)

Call it what you will
Time we never knew how to fill
Like I told you
A comedy of errors-

But I’ll always love you, I’ll always love you-

12. IT NEVER HAPPENED
(George Usher/John Dunbar)

There she is in her leather coat
The one she wore when she said goodbye
Our eyes meet and she looks right through me
Then she turns away-

And I understand it never happened No matter what I recall I can believe it never happened It never happened at all-

What about what I can’t forget?
What about the night we met?
What about all the whispered words
Under a harvest moon?

Ah, but I know it never happened No matter what I recall I can believe it never happened It never happened at all-

I thought I’d convinced myself but I’m not even sure
Who I was yesterday, where I was yesterday
The picture face down on the shelf might look a lot like her
But that was a world away, that was a dream away-

I don’t know why she wears the ring
I gave her for a party joke
And I don’t know why I have her name
Tattooed on my arm-

Because I know it never happened
No matter what I recall
I can believe it never happened
It never happened at all
Yeah I know it never happened
No matter what I recall
I can believe it never happened
It never happened at all-
