Lyrics: Something’s Coming:

Could be!
Who knows?
There’s something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It’s only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.

I got a feeling there’s a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something’s coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something’s coming, I don’t know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

Will it be? Yes it will.
Maybe just by holding still
It will be there.

Come on something, come on in
Don’t be shy, meet a guy
Pull up a chair,
The air is humming
And something great is coming.

Who knows,
It’s only just out of reach
Down the block, on the beach
Maybe tonight…

Lyrics Going Out Of My Head/ You Go To My Head:

Well, I think I’m goin’ out of my head
Yes, I think I’m goin’ out of my head
Over you, Over you
I want you to want me, I need you so badly
I can’t think of anything but you

You go to my head
And you linger like a haunting refrain
And I find you spinning round in my brain
Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne

And I think I’m goin’ out of my head
‘Caus I can’t explain the tears that I shed
Over you, over you

I see you each morning
But you just walk past me
You don’t even know that I exist

Goin’ out of my head over you
Out of my head over you
Out of my head day and night
Night and day and night, Wrong or right

I must think of a way, Into your heart
There’s no reason why, My being shy, Should keep us apart
Though I’m certain that this heart of mine hasn’t a ghost of a chance
In this crazy romance
You go to my head
And I think I’m goin’ out of my head.
