LO MEJOR DE BREAD Y DAVID GATES


David Gates - The Guitar Man
Who draws the crowd and plays so loud, baby, it's the guitar man
Who's gonna steal the show, you know, baby, it's the guitar man
He can make you love, he can make you cry
He will bring you down and he'll get you high
Somethin' keeps him goin' miles and miles a day
To find another place to play

Night after night, who treats you right, baby, it's the guitar man
Who's on the radio, you go and listen to the guitar man
Then he comes to town and you see his face
And you think you might like to take his place
Somethin' keeps him driftin' miles and miles away
Searching for the songs to play

Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along
You want to get the meaning out of each and every song
Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own and take 'em home

He can make you love, he can get you high
He will bring you down, then he'll make, make you cry
Somethin' keeps him movin', but no one seems to know
What it is that makes him go

Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice, he's just got to find another place to play

Fade away
Got to play
Fade away
Got to play



David Gates: Sweet Surrender

Baby I'm through runnin' it's true
I'd be a fool to try to escape you
Maybe I'm beat but oh what a sweet surrender

You keep your rights, I'll take your nights
No one can lose when we turn the lights out
Tastin' defeat, lovin' that sweet surrender

I'm givin' up myself to you but I didn't really lose at all
I gave the only love I've known and it never hurt me to fall







Bread - Look What You've Done
You have taken the heart of me
And left just a part of me,
And look, look, look what you've done.
Well, you took all the best of me,
So come get the rest of me,
And look back, finish what you've begun.

There is some one you ought to meet;
It's me, Mister Incomplete.
Look, at what I've become.
For it's due to the lack of you
That I'm now only half of two.
Look back, finish what you've begun.

Come and sit by my side
Where there's nothing to hide.
You will try to decide what you needed;
But from where I stand today,
I can't think of the way
Or the words that I might say
That will change your mind and make you stay.
Oh, no, not for all the times I've pleaded.

Look, look, look what you've done.
You have taken the best of me,
So come get the rest of me,
And look back; finish what you've begun.
I'll be done.


" Dismal Day "
I look into my morning mirror
And it reveals some things to me that I had not been able to see
I saw someone that I'm not sure I want to be
An empty lonely face was starin' back at me

All and all, I would have to say
It's been a rather dismal day

The afternoon was slow in coming
I drug myself outside the people that I knew would be there
And though they walked along pretending not to care
I knew behind my back they'd point and laugh and stare

CHORUS

And now the evening shadow's falling
I guess it's best I lay my hopes to rest for noone's calling my name
I sit and wait behind a door that's never knocked on
I live in silence like my phone that's never talked on

CHORUS




BREAD I NEED YOU

A Amaj7, Em7
We used to laugh, we used to cry,
Dm7 G7 C
we used to bow our heads then, wonder why.
A Amaj7 Em7
But now you're gone, I guess I'll carry on,
Dm7 G7 C
and make the best of what you left to me,
Fmaj7 D7
left to me, left to me.

G Em
I need you like the flower needs the rain,
Bm Am7 D7
you know I need you, guess I'll start it all again.
G Em
You know I need you lke the winter needs the spring,
Bm D E
you know I need you, I need you.

A Amaj7 Em7
And ev'ry day I'd laugh the hours away,
Dm7 G7 C
Just knowing you were thinking of me,
A Amaj7 Em7
And then it came that I was put to blame
Dm7 G7 C
for ev'ry story told about me,
Fmaj7 D7
'bout me, about me.

G Em
I need you like the flower needs the rain,
Bm G7
you know I need you, guess I'll start it all again.
Cmaj7 Am
You know I need you, I need you,
G Em
I need you like the winter needs the spring,
Bm G7
you know I need you, guess I'll start it all again.
Cmaj7 Am
You know I need you, I need you,....(repeat chorus and
fade)


' LOST WITHOUT YOUR LOVE '


Lost and all alone.
i always thought that i could make it on my own.
but since you left i hardly make it thought the day.
my tears get in the way, and i need you back to stay.
I wonder through the night
search the world for the words to make it right.
all i want is the way it used to be
with you here holding me.
i've got to make you see,
that i'm lost with out your love.
life without you isn't worth the trouble of.
i'm as helpless as a ship without a wind,
a touch without a feel
i cen't believe its real
and someday i'll wake and find my heart won't have to break.
Yes, i'm lost with out your love.
life without you isn't worth the trouble of.
all i want is the way it used to be
i need you here with me.
oh darling can't you see,
if we had love before we can have it back once more..




' MAKE IT WITH YOU '

Hey have you ever tried
really reaching out for the other side?
i may be climbing on rainbows
but baby, here goes...
dreams are for those who sleep
life is for us to keep
and if you're wondering what this song is leading to,
i'd like to make it with you
I really think that we could make it, girl
Though you don't know me well
with every little thing only time will tell
if you believe the things that i do,
then we'll see it through
life can be short or long
love can be right or wrong
and if i chose the one i'd like to help me through
i'd like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it, girl
(inst)
Baby you know that dreams are for those who sleep
life is for us to keep
and if i chose the one i'd like to help me through
i'd like to make it with you
I really thing that we can make it, girl



Baby I’m-a Want You
"BABY , I'M-A WANT YOU"
Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
You the only one
I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I'm-a crazy
But I just can't live without...

Your lovin' and affection
Givin' me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through my darkest hour
Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why...

Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me.

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh
And made me cry...
You taught me why...

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you

Oh, it took so long to find you, baby

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you


If If a picture paints a thousand words,
then why can't i paint you?
the words will never show the you i've come to know.
if a face could launch a thousand ships,
then where am i to go?
there's no one home but you,
you're all that's left me too.
and when my love for life is running dry,
you come and pour yourself on me.
If a man could be two places at one time,
i'd be with you.
tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
if the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
i'd spend the end with you.
and when the world was through,
then one by one the stars would all go out,
then you and i would simply fly away



Aubrey
And aubrey was her name,
a not so very ordinary girl or name.
but who's to blame?
for a love that wouldn't bloom
for the hearts that never played in tune.
like a lovely melody that everyone can sing,
take away the words that rhyme it doesn't mean a thing.
And aubrey was her name.
we triped the light and danced together to the moon,
but where was june.
no it never came around.
if it did it never made a sound,
maybe i was absent or was listening to fast,
catching all the words, but then the meaning going past,
But god i miss the girl,
and i'd go a thousand times around the world just to be
closer to her than to me.
And aubrey was her name,
i never knew her, but i loved her just the same,
i loved her name.
wish that i had found the way
and the reasons that would make her stay.
i have learned to lead a life apart from all the rest.
if i can't have the one i want, i'll do without the best.
But how i miss the girl
and i'd go a million times around the world just to say
she had been mine for a day.



' ANYWAY YOU WANT ME '

Anyway you want me
Take me anyway you want me
'cause i need your love to see me through
you can make me anyway you want me
that's all that i can offer you
i have tried so hard to please you
but i just can't seem to reach you
Tried, tried a little kindness
every night and day like i knew i should
but you can take me, yes and you can leave me
but i always stayed, and you knew i would
come on, come on closer now
i will get to you somehow
Come on, come on closer now
i will get to you somehow
but you got to show me how
please, please baby, please
please, baby show me the way to your heart
You got to take me anyway you want me
or take me just, just the way i am
take me, or you can make me



' BEEN TOO LONG ON THE ROAD '

Been too long on the road
Always look so good on the outside
when you get to believin' it's true,
then you know that you're on your way
people tug on your shirt, say you're lucky
you've got ev'rything you want, but you don't
yet you dare not say
go downtown people runnin' around
they climb slowly draggin' you downtown,
horns make a dent in your mind
plush rooms make a blindin' your eye to see,
blindin' me. light, lovely light,
won't ya' shine in my window
love, precious love won't ya' fill ev'ry room,
been too long on the road.
maybe cynics veins are my life blood
maybe bitin' the hand that i feed so i'll try
try to understand what it is that devours your freedom,
makes you drop what you used to hold in your heart.
all the things you planned
go upstairs with a someone who says she cares,
like the devil she does,
what comes ever into your mind?
then gone, leavin' you with the coldest room,
oldest gloom. warm, won't you be,
please be there in my winter.
love, precious love won't ya' come full circle,
been too long on the road.
how can i do this to myself?
have i taken leave of my senses?
what kind of changes make a man
want to tear down all his fences
whoa, i'd like to know. home ever home,
how could i ever doubt you
love, precious love, how could i live without you?
been too long on the road.





Diary
I found her diary underneath a tree.
and started reading about me
the words she's written took me by surpise
you'd never read them in her eyes.
they said that she had found the love she waited for.
wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.
When she confronted with the writing there,
simply pretended not to care.
i passed it off as just in keeping with
her total disconcerting air
and though she tried to hide
the love that she denied,
wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.
And as i go through my life, i will give to her my wife
all the sweet things that i can find.
I found her diary underneath a tree.
and started reading about me.
the words began stick and tears to flow.
her meaning now was clear to see.
the love she'd waited for was someone else not me
wouldn't you know it, she wouldn't show it.
And as i go through my life, i will wish for her his wife
all the sweet things that she can find
all the sweet things they can find


First time it's rained since I came to the city
Seemed like a good time to write
And even now as I look out my window
Rain clouds are chasing the light

The play games of magic in the night...

Lately I've stayed with the lady from Denver
She said to come by for awhile
Took me on down to her place by the river
Carried me off on her smile

We play games of magic all the while...

' SUMMER BREEZE '

See the curtains hanging in the window
in the evening on a friday night
a little light a-shining through the window
lets me know everythings alright
Chorus:
summer breeze makes me feel fine
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
summer breeze makes me feel fine
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
See the paper lying on the sidewalk
a little music from the house next door
so i walk on up to the door step
through the screen and across the floor
Repeat chorus
Sweet days of summer, the jasmine's in bloom
july is dressed up and playing her tune
when i come home from a hard days work
and you're waiting there, not a care in the world
See the smile a-waiting in the kitchen
food cooking and the plates for two
feel the arms that reach out to hold me
in the evening when the day is through
Repeat chorus



' JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST '

You packed in the morning I stared out the window And I struggle for something to say You left in the rain without closing the door But I didn�t stand in your way  Now I miss you more then I missed you before and now where will I find comfort? God knows Cause you left me Just when I needed you most (you) you just left me just when I needed you most now most every morning I stare at the window And I think about where you may be I�ve written you letters that I like to send If you would just send one to me  Cause I need you more then I needed before and now where will I find comfort? God knows Cause you left me Just when I needed you most Yes you left me just when I needed you most  (yooouuuu Just when I needed the most)  You packed in the morning I stared out the window And I struggle for something to say You left in the rain without closing the door I didn�t stand in your way  Now I love you more Then I loved you before and now where will I find comfort? God knows Cause you left me Just when I needed you most you left me just when I needed you most  Oooh Yoouu left me Just when I needed you most
























'Sail Around The World'

I would sail around the world
look for gold and dive for pearl
but i know i will never get to go
i would like to win a prize, be in everybody's eyes
but it's true, i would probably not get to
My life has always been simple
no one ever knows when i come and go
and my dreams are ending at sunrise
and dreaming just don't make it so
So i've lived with no regrets
wouldn't change a thing and yet
now and then, wish that i could start again




' SUNDAY RIDER '


Sunday riders-ridin' out along the highway
sunday gliders-glidin' up along the skyway
some must fly and some must speed
to satisfy the human need
Paper dresses-wear them once and throw
away
plastic flowers-try to smell them anyway
no matter what the future brings
nothin's like the real things
Sunday lovers-sneakin' in forsaken places
under covers-so's to hide the guilty faces
take my wife and take my pay
but don't take my sunday lady from me.



' SOAP (I USE THE) '


I use the soap to wash the dirt of my face
i write with pencil so that i can erase
but what's to do when someone's taken my place with you, with you
I know to stop when the light turns to red
and when it rains i know to cover my head
but what's to do when i wish'd i were dead over you, 'ver you, over you
Do do do do do etc
plannin' to write off tomorrow
do do do do do etc
hopin' to wash off the sorrow
I woke to find that my world was not there
it ceased to me when i found you did not care
and my ambition vanished into thin air along with you, with you
Now my emotions find it hard to let go
and as for me i'll find a new road to hoe
but maybe this time i will take it more slow than before, before
than before




Suite: Clouds, Rain


See the clouds adrift so far below
everchanging as they come and go
makes me wonder why i'm up so high
when really i am down so low
Of all the wonders i was one allowed
i think that i would always choose a cloud
always brings my feelings right out loud
whether i'm ashamed or proud
On this airplane comin' home to you
sometimes i think i've flown my whole
life through
my whole life... through
as i wing my way to you
See the clouds they're giving life below
in colors that the canvas cannot show
keeping secrets no one else could know
for i'm the one who told them so
Now and then i get up close to you
i'd like to stay but i'm just passing through
so i'll have to say goodbye...
until next time i fly.

(interlude)
Make my bed-light the light
comin' in on the midnight flight
touch the ground and soon you will be
safe inside reality
Change your mind-change your name
still the music it sounds the same
Rainfall don't bother me at all
you see the world reflected on the highway
come on rainbow-i can't let you go
before i reach the end of you someway
So the next time raindrops fall
if it makes you climb the walls just think
of green.





ANN
Ann a-sleepin' on my bed
hair a-tumblin' 'round your head
you will always be a part of me
when i look in your eyes... it's my
reflection i see
Ann i wonder how you knew
i needed someone just like you
were you on a beam of guiding light
that came in my life... late that
september night.
And though i try to hold back the years
i cannot hold the dawn
and so i try to hold back the tears
when love has grown up and gone...
Ann i'll love you 'till i die
and when you hear this lullabye
i'll be with you though we're far apart
and you'll be with me... right here inside
my heart.




' LORILEE '

Lorilee, how could you do this to me
come along, took all my love for a song
when a smile lights your face it's a
beautiful place
see how it shines... se how it shines
Lorilee, now that i've tasted your ways
i could live off of your lovin' for days
and when you're not around i keep missing
your sound
wish you were here
wish i was there
you are life, you are lee... my lorilee




' GOODBYE GIRL '


All your life you've waited for love to
come and stay
and now that i have found you, you must
not slip away
i know it's hard believin' the words you've
heard before
but darlin' you must trust them just once
more... 'cause baby
goodbye doesn't mean forever
let me tell you goodbye doesn't mean
we'll never be together again
if you wake up and i'm not there, i won't
be long away
'cause the things you do my goodbye girl
will bring me back to you.
I know you've been taken, afraid to hurt
again
you fight the love you feel for me instead
of givin' in
but i can wait forever, a-helpin' you to see
that i was meant for you and you for me
...so remember
Goodbye doesn't mean forever
let me tell you goodbye doesn't mean
we'll never be together again
though we may be so far apart you still
will have my heart
so forget your past my goodbye girl
'cause now you're home at last.




Never Let Her Go

Everybody needs a someone
Waitin' to be there when things are
a-lookin' down
So if you feel a little lonely
Go out, find your one and only
Somewhere out there
Someone will care for you
and then...
Never Let Her Go
Never Let Her Go

You may wonder how you know love
When the moment comes that you've
been a-dreamin' of
Well true love takes a little longer
Your heart beats a little stronger
You'll know it's real
Inside you'll feel you're home at
last... then
Never Let Her Go
Never Let Her Go

So if you feel a little lonely
Go out, find your one and only
Open your heart
Give love a start and watch it
grow... and
Never Let Her Go
Never Let Her Go

David Gates - Do You Believe He's Comin'

Almighty Nation what's this in the air
No explanation but still it is there
You hear the talk from the people you meet
To meet the people just go down on the street

And they believe He's comin'
Yes they believe He's comin'

So many people confused and afraid
Too many shy from commitments they made
A change of values and moral decay
The damn foundation is splitting away

But I believe He's comin'
Yes I believe He's comin'

Hey lighty-lie do you dare prophesy
Do you believe that the millions will die
A single nation encamped all around
And what will come if her knees hit the ground

Do you believe He's comin'
Dare not believe He's comin'

So now it's time to get ready they say
The time of judgement is not far away
And if the meek shall inherit the earth
Look at yourself brother what are you worth

Do you believe He's comin'
Like I believe He's comin'

Do you believe He's comin'
Dare not believe He's comin'

Dare not believe!

Do you dare, do you dare not believe

' SAIL AROUND THE WORLD '

I would sail around the world
look for gold and dive for pearl
but i know i will never get to go
i would like to win a prize, be in everybody's eyes
but it's true, i would probably not get to
My life has always been simple
no one ever knows when i come and go
and my dreams are ending at sunrise
and dreaming just don't make it so
So i've lived with no regrets
wouldn't change a thing and yet
now and then, wish that i could start again



Took the Last Train

David Gates

Took the Last Train to St Tropez

Had in mind to dance the night away
Experimented with a cognac high
When in France you give everything a try

Soon the crowd dwindled down to two
Not a soul around but me and you
You just smiled in French and took my hand
Spoke the words I tried my best to understand
You're tellin' me-

Viens chez moi
Ce soir va jamais terminer
On va rester toujours ensemble-you're
tellin' me

Come with me
Tonight will last forever
We will stay together always

Wake the next day and found her note
Love ya, goodbye that's all she wrote
And every night down at the place we met
I wait for her and those sweet words I
can't forget
You're tellin' me-

Viens chez moi
Ce soir va jamais terminer
On va rester toujours ensemble-'cause
I want you to

Come with me
Tonight will last forever
We will stay together always

Where Does The Lovin' Go



Where does the lovin’ go?
(Music and lyrics by David Gates)
Tell me where does the lovin’ go
When it’s gone away
Tell me when does the heartache end
Or is it bound to stay
I always thought that we would last forever
A love that never, ever would be ending
But now I see it isn’t meant to be
And I’ve got to stop pretending
Tell me where are all the dreams
That we used to share
Are they lost to some other time
Or will they still begin
I can’t believe that my place could be taken
A heart so easy breaking up inside
Cause after all this time
I thought of you as mine
And it’s hard to let go
My heart says no
And I never knew we were losin’ touch
I didn’t think we could change so much
Don’t take your leave of me just yet
Smile from your repose
So I won’t forget
Tell me where is another chance
Like the one we knew
Tell me where can I find someone
Someone just like you
I can’t imagine what I’m gonna do
Cause I’ve lived my life for you and all we’ve planned
And I don’t think I’ll ever understand
Where does the lovin’go
