The Best Of Pete Townshend

Uneasy Street (previously unreleased)
Released 1995 on the "Best Of" Pete Townshend.
Written by Pete Townshend, Jim Lind & Billy Nicholls in 1993.

On Easy St last night
The devil offered me a deal
He said, come on and take what you'd like
And later tell me how you feel
So I looked up all around
On this uneasy street
I'd have been happy if I had found
something simple to eat
But just as he asked me Maureen walked past
I said, Mr. Devil, she is so refined.
He said, I tricked you little brother
I tricked you little brother
That tricky little mother is mine.

I wish I was as good as I look
I wish I was that good
I wish I was as good as I look
Wish I could be that good

It was too late for me
I'd just set eyes on my heart's ideal
I was in ecstasy I was up and ready to steal
So I looked up all around on this uneasy street
I kept on looking until I found the prints of my beloved's feet
I kept up the chase 'til I looked right in her face
I said, My darling you have angel's eyes
She said to this little brother
You knew little brother
This is just his still mother's disguise
I wish I was as good as I look
I wish I was that good
I wish I was as good as I look wish I could be that good


I just could not believe someone so beautiful could not be pure
I prayed for some reprieve I had to save her from the Devil's lure
But I guess the Devil was bound to win
On this uneasy street
I had to know what was beneath her skin
I had to face up to the Devil's heat
But I didn't have to ask
she just took off her mask
In a second it was clear to see
He said, I tricked you little brother
I tricked you little brother
This tricky little mother...is me.
Is me
Is me
I wish I was as good as I look I wish I was that good
I wish I was as good as I look wish I could be that good
I tricked you little brother.
yeah yeah
I tricked you little brother

Let My Love Open The Door
(e.cola mix)

Released 1995 on the "Best Of" Pete Townshend.
Written by Pete Townshend in 1980.

When people keep repeating
That you'll never fall in love
When everybody keeps retreating
But you can't seem to get enough

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart

Let my love open the door
When everything feels all over
Everybody seems unkind
I'll give you a four leaf clover
Take all the worry out of your mind

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart
Let my love open the door, To your heart
Let my love open the door, To your heart
Let my love open the door, To your heart
To your heart
To your heart
To your heart
To your heart

I have the only key to your heart
I can stop you falling apart
Try today, you'll find this way
Come on and give me a chance to say

Let my love
Let my love
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door, To your heart
Let my love open the door, To your heart
Let my love open the door, To your heart

When tragedy befalls you
Don't let it drag you down
Love can cure your problems
You're so lucky I'm around

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart
To your heart
To your heart
(every 2 measures for 8 more times)

When people keep repeating
That you'll never fall in love
When everybody keeps retreating
But you can't seem to get enough

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart
