WITH LOVE

SIDE ONE

Hail Avatar Meher Baba
(recorded at 1972 Amartithi Celebration) Last Qawali Group

Instrumental

Give It Up
(Billy Nicholls/Steve Humphries) with McSmith and Alan Murphy

I need a drink; I want to drown;
Don't wanna think; don't want a sound;
But I hear a voice shouting so loud
Give It Up

I got a wife; I gotta chose;
Stay out at night, what can I lose?
Only one thing I gotta do,
Give It Up

Early in the morning, night after night;
I look at your picture, and I don't know why
Like an air distant memory, I can't forget,
and it's coming back down on me; I'm living in bed.

Oh no, not me,
though you didn't really want me at all

I need a drink; I want to drown;
Don't wanna think; don't want a sound;
But I hear a voice shouting so loud
Give It Up

Early in the morning, night after night;
I look at your picture, and I don't know why
Like an air distant memory, I can't forget,
and it's coming back down on me; I'm living in bed.

Without Your Love
(Billy Nicholls)

You can show me the way;
give me a sunny day;
what does it mean without your love?

If I could travel far;
if I could touch the stars,
where would I be without your love?

Whenever I get to feel down and out,
I think about what you said, and then
I give up.

If I could fly away;
If I could sail today,
where would I go without your love?

You're at the lowest level, and you're above;
you're in the seventh heaven, and you're in love;

Say it was just a whim;
there ain't a single thing
you wouldn't be without your love.


His Hands
(Pete Townshend)

Instrumental

Just For a Moment
(Ronnie Lane) with Ron Wood and Bruce Rowland

I've been a drinking, biding my time;
I've loaded and wasted, by my design
I've been using myself, like I only I can,
but I understand that you understand.

Cos just for a moment, I found my peace;
just for a moment, I came across me;
everything is, and there's nothing a-missing,
well just for a moment, I found my bliss.

Just for a moment I found my peace;
well just for a moment, I came across me;
everything is, and there's nothing a-missing;
just for a moment, I was complete.


Baba Blues
(Lol Benbow)

Oh Baba, some day I'll write you a love song,
but now I'll just sing the blues.
Some day I'll write you a love song,
but now though, I'll just sing the blues.
I suffer in the day, and the night time runs,
and to suffer is what I chose.

You lived and you died just for me, Love.
Yesterday they brought me the news.
You lived and you died just for me, Love.
Yesterday they brought me the news.
Still I waste my time holding first to what's mine;
it's no wonder that I just sing the blues.

I've got no time for the spirit's yearning,
no time for those higher things,
no time for the spirit's yearning,
got no time for those higher things.
I've got earthily wants, burning churning inside,
and the blues is what that brings.

Beloved, I do want to love you,
don't know why I always refuse.
Beloved, I want to love you;
I don't know why I always refuse.
Still I'll wait till I'm willing and worthy to serve you;
till then I'll just sing the blues.


Meher
(Paul Wyld) with Greg Sheahan, Gus Fenwick and Rob McKenzie.

Meher, Meher
You can turn the darkest night into the brightest day;
you make all the difference in the world.
Oh, Meher, Meher
You can thaw the coldest part;
you can melt the hardest heart;
you bring a spring to this wintery world.
Oh, Meher, Meher

Time and again, nothing changes.
God remains the same.
Time and again, throughout the ages,
you remaind the same. Love along.

Baba's sun, shine on, shine on;
Baba's sun, shine on me.
Baba's sun, shine on, shine on;
Baba's sun, shine on me.

You are our love; you are our light;
you are the bread and the wine, and
we are all hungry in this famine world for you.
Meher, Meher



SIDE TWO

Contact
(Peter Hope-Evans) Medicine Head

Stop cold in your tracks;
this brother could not relax;
and like a stone between my eyes,
I'm gonna shed its disguise;
Don't let me lose, don't let me lose contact.

Movin' fast with the feeling;
pulling hard and there's no concealing;
diamond fingers pull me through;
couldn't do it without you.
Now I'm seeing what, I'm seeing what I believe in.

You give me a piece of your action;
you star (stone) me with a calm;
I've been fed off my kharma,
too much, much too long.

Being pushed at the frontier;
feel it up to my ears;
to you my life is melting in,
without you to helter shelter me.
Now I'm not stoppin', not stoppin' where love is feeling.


Gotta Know Ya
(Billy Nicholls/Steve Humphries) with Sammy Mitchell and George Butler

Gotta know why you look familiar;
gotta know who this face can be;
gotta know if I'm only dreaming;
gotta know why it has to be.

I gotta know everything;
I gotta know the Ace, Jack, Queen and King.
Gotta know ya!

Coulda been a rich man or a pauper;
coulda been a fishing man at sea;
Gotta know if you know the answer;
gotta know why it has to be.

I gotta know everything;
I gotta know the Ace, Jack, Queen and King.
Gotta know ya!

Seven colors and seven wonders
have never interested me at all.
You can talk about blood and thunder,
but you might just as well talk to a wall.

Gotta know why you look familiar;
gotta know who this face can be.
Gotta know if I'm only dreaming;
gotta know why it has to be.

I gotta know everything;
I gotta know the Ace, Jack, Queen and King.
Gotta know ya!


Sleeping Dog
(Pete Townshend)

Sleeping dog by the open fire,
you're sleeping your life away;
you don't know how far you've got to go
or the trouble that you'll have to face.

If all I can do is love you,
provide you with some fun and food.
All I can do is love you,
and that is what I do.

Sleeping children laying in your beds,
tomorrow you'll be back at school.
You look so young, but you've come so far.
You'll never be any souls' fool.

All I can do is love you,
provide you with some fun and food.
All I can do is love you,
and that is what I do.

All I can do is love you,
provide you with some fun and food.
All I can do is love you,
and that is what I do.

Now I'm going up to my wife;
Baba, I pray to you.
Love me just a little like I love them,
and I can do some sleeping, too.

All I can do is love you,
provide you with a song.
All I can do is love you
like you've been loving me all along.

All I can do is love you,
provide you with a verse or two.
All I can do is love you,
and that is what I do.


All God's Mornings
(Sydney Foxx) with Pete Banks

Hard to hear, somebody calling,
doesn't matter who they are,
doesn't matter where they are;
it's hard to hear.

Sticks and stones, even words can hurt me,
oh you know they hurt me bad.
We've got to smile;
we've got to understand;
we need to know when somebody's lonely.

All God's lovely mornings
are the beginnings of brand new days.
I'm prayin, all God's lonely children
will find the love they need to find the way.

Sunshine or rain, we've got to carry on.
Those who've and lost, they know why.
It takes strength to see
and lots of love to try.
Come on and try; everyone's lonely.

All God's lovely mornings
are the beginnings of brand new days.
I'm prayin, all God's lonely children
will find the love they need to find the way.
