Real & Real Solo Lyrics

Real

Please, Don't Call It Love

War No More

Oh, they say great love is a great mistake
The surest way to a great heartache
And I still dream about you

The days and weeks and years roll past
My body slows my mind moves fast
And I still dream about you

A lover's kiss, a warm embrace
The glow, the promise of your face
And I still dream about you

I pull you close, your body slides in
I can smell the color of your hair and skin
And I still dream about you

Sometimes I dream of things that might have been
Sometimes my dreams are only remembering
And you're still here
And it still feels
Real

While my heart is sure your love is gone
The memories go on and on
And I still dream about you

My spirit's pulled to another land
Where nothing less than love will stand
And I still dream about you

They say there's no life in the past
And in the end this too will pass
And I still dream about you

Ah, but some things cannot be denied
I wonder now why I ever tried
Because I still dream about you

Sometimes I dream of things that might have been
Sometimes my dreams are only remembering
And you're still here
And it still feels
Real

Can true love last through the centuries?
Our molecules floating in the breeze
Will I still dream about you?

Can time and space and my immortal soul
Reunite and take control
And still these dreams about you

Will I dream of things that might have been?
Will you be here?
Will it still feel
Real

Sometimes my dreams are only remembering
But you're always here
And it still feels
Real


You can call it a beautiful thing
You can buy me a diamond ring
But please, please don't call it love

You can say you're glad you found me
Throw your arms around me
But please, please don't call it love

Because the word has been so misused
And my heart has been so abused
And I want this feeling
To last and last and last

So if you really want to know me
Don't tell me, baby, show me
And please, please don't call it love

You can call me anytime you need me
You can feed me, you can bleed me
But please, please don't call it love

You can call me when you're feeling lonely
Tell me I'm your one and only
But please, please don't call it love

Because the word has been so misused
And my heart has been so confused
And I never want to lose the way
You make me laugh and laugh and laugh

So if you really want to know me
Don't tell me, baby show me
And please, please, please don't call it love
When I was less than 17
On my TV screen
The soldiers and the bombs
Were plainly seen
I saw the human cost
My innocence was lost
I heard the cry
War no more

So I'll sing this mournful song 'til all war is gone
War no more, war no more
I'll sing it in the streets to everyone I meet
War no more, war no more

Children in their graves
Mothers, daughters that were raped
Hear their cries
War no more
Fleeing refugees
Fatherless families
Hear their cries
War no more

Old men with their gold
Tempt young men to be bold
While they hide behind
The profits of their trade
Sending others out to die
Saying God is on our side
While a bargain with the devil
Is what they've made

When I leave this life I love
I'll sing it from above
War no more, war no more
I'll sing this mournful song
Until love and peace have come
War no more, war no more

Cajun Music Saved My Life Tonight

I Wonder What Is Waiting For Me

A Love Like Mine

Cajun music saved my life tonight
Cajun music saved my life tonight
I heard the Cajun music playing in the soft moonlight
My heart was breaking and I felt like crying
I felt so low, I felt like dying
'Til I heard the band singing, “Ay, Ai, Ai”
And they were singing,
"Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don't know
Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don’t know"
"Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don't know Ay,
ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don’t know"

I'm gonna go to Louisiana, gonna party 'til I'm feeling right
Gonna go to Louisiana, gonna party 'til I'm feeling right
Gonna find a Cajun girl and dance in the soft moonlight
I'm gonna stand on the bayou let my feelings go
Dance all night at the Fais-do-do
I'm gonna find a Cajun girl and party 'til I'm feeling right
And we'll sing,
"Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don't know
Ay, ai, ay, ai , ay, ai don't know"

Oh, the woman I love is much too young for me
Yeah, the woman I love is much too young for me
I know the love that I want and need, can never be
But I feel so happy when I hear her voice
I try to turn away but I've got no choice
You know I love her so and I know that she loves me
So we're singing,
"Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don't know
Ay ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don't know"

Way down in Louisiana underneath the evergreen
I was sitting there all alone, along come a Creole Queen
I said I'm going to a party, baby, do you want to go?
She said, "Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don't know"
"Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don’t know
Ay, ai, ay, ai, ay, ai don 't know"

*Ay, ai, ai is an original traditional Zydeco song written by Clifton Chenier.
Through my window I stare
Through the trees and open air
And I wonder what is waiting for me
Like the birds up in the sky

My imagination flies
And I wonder what is waiting for me
I think of signs I have missed
The ones I should have kissed
And I wonder what is waiting for me
I think of rivers I have crossed
Bridges that were lost
And I wonder what is waiting for me
I wonder what is waiting for me

They say the future's not ours to see
It will be nothing like I picture it to be
I want to know where my life is going
Though I know I'm better off not knowing

Oh, I think about a woman
You know I hope she's coming soon
And I wonder what is waiting for me
Will I find the love I need?
Or stay lonely and free
I wonder what is waiting for me

Oh, through the window I stare
Through the trees and open air
And I wonder what is waiting for me
Like the birds up in the sky
My imagination flies
And I wonder what is waiting for me

I think of signs I have missed
The ones I have and should have kissed
And I wonder what is waiting for me
I think of rivers I must cross
Bridges to be lost
And I wonder what is waiting for me
I wonder what is waiting for me

Because the future is like a woman
I don’t even know her name
I’ve never seen her face she's a mystery to me
A sweet, sweet mystery to me
A natural mystery to me
And Van Morrison said, "She's alright with me"
Yeah, Van said, "She's alright with me"
Van said, "She's alright… yeah, She's alright with me"
And I wonder what is waiting for me


Love like mine is hard to find
It don't come 'round every day
It’s not like I get to decide
Who and when to give it away

A love like mine has its own mind
It's got to wait for all the signs
And that can take a long, long time
With a love like mine
A love like mine

I know you didn't mean to say
Those hard, hard things you said to me
You were hoping I would stay
You didn't want to drive me away

But a love like mine has got a lot of pride
And the pain inside gets hard to hide
Sometimes the truth gets undermined
With a love like mine
A love like mine

Now I don't want to hang around
While you go looking everywhere
Listening to the empty sound
Of your own voice making you scared

Oh, a love like mine just won't believe
Someone like you would really leave
The very thing you really need
A love like mine
You need a love like mine

Love like mine is hard to lose
Because it's got nowhere else to go
No destination without you
No way to move until it knows

A love like mine must know for sure
That you don't love me anymore
And only words are not enough
For a man like me
With a love like mine
Oh, a love like mine
You need a love like mine
I need a love like you, a love like you, baby
For a love like mine

You Hurt Me Baby

Kind Hearted Woman Blues

Heart Of Gold

You said it was an accident
You didn't want to happen
You stumbled into love with him
Well, I guess that’s the truth

You hurt me, baby, you hurt me, baby
You hurt me, baby, you hurt me, baby
No use making excuses
You hurt me, baby, you hurt me, baby

I've been driving me crazy
With long explanations
Searching, searching for you
From a million miles away

I showed you all my love
I said, "True love never dies"
When I think of all the things you said
They sound like goddamn lies

Well, maybe I'm a dreamer
Or maybe that's how I heal
But I believe the day will come
When you see love is real

Oh, you hurt me, baby
Deep, deep down where I live
You hurt me, baby
But I can forgive, yes, I can forgive
Because I'm drowning in an ocean of my own devotion to you, baby
Oh, you hurt me, baby
You hurt me, baby


This is the first song that the legendary
Bluesman Robert Johnson recorded.
It was recorded on November 23, 1936 in San Antonio, Texas.
(Neil Young)

True Love Never Dies

You can tell me to go
And you can say goodbye
You can make the truth sound like a lie
But I know true love never dies

True love never dies

Dreamers like me are never alone
We have our dreams for company
All the love you turn away I keep here deep inside
To make sure true love never dies

I’ve seen you sitting looking at pictures of
The younger days with your first love
In that moment your heart drifts back in time
And you know true love never dies

Somehow things began to spin out of control
Somehow we both lost our way
It’s gotten so there’s nothing I can say
Except that, true love never dies

True love never dies
True
