1 Play Had To Cry Today (Steve Winwood)
It's already written that today will be one to remember
The feeling's the same as being outside of the law
Had to cry today
Well, I saw your sign and I missed you there

I'm taking the chance to see the wind in your eyes while I listen
You say you can't reach me but you want every word to be free
Had to cry today
Well, I saw your sign and I missed you there
And I missed you there

Had to cry today ...

2 Play Can’t Find My Way Home (Steve Winwood)
Come down off your throne and leave your body alone - somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting so long - somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own and leave your body alone - somebody must change
You are the reason I've been waiting all these years - somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

3 Play Well All Right (Petty, Holly Allison, Mauldin)
Well all right so I've been foolish
Well all right let people know
'Bout the dreams and wishes that you dream
In the night when lights are low

Well all right, Well all right
You know we'll live and love with all our might
Well all right, Well all right
You know our lifetime love will be all right

Well all right so I'm not working
Well all right let people say
That those foolish kids can't be ready
For the love that comes their way

4 Play Presence of The Lord (Eric Clapton)
I have finally found a way to live just like I never could before
I know that I don't have much to give, but I can open any door
Everybody knows the secret, everybody knows the score, yeah
I have finally found a way to live in the colour of the Lord

I have finally found a place to live just like I never could before
And I know I don't have much to give, but soon I'll open any door
Everybody knows the secret, everybody knows the score
I have finally found a place to live, oh, in the presence of the Lord
In the presence of the Lord

I have finally found a way to live, just like I never could before
And I know I don't have much to give, but I can open any door
Everybody knows the secret, I said everybody knows the score
I have finally found a way to live in the colour of the Lord
In the colour of the Lord

5 Play Sea Of Joy (Steve Winwood)
Following the shadows of the skies or are they only figments of my eyes?
And I'm feeling close to where the race is run
Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

Once the door swings open into space and I'm already waiting in disguise
Or is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy
Having trouble coming through, through this concrete, blocks my view
And it's all because of you

Or is it just a thorn between my eyes?
Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

6 Play Do What You Like (Ginger Baker)
Do right, use your head, everybody must be fed
Get together, break your bread, yes, together, that's what I said
Do what you like

Don't fight
Don't fight, use your head, it's all right every night
Do what you like, that's what I said
Everybody must be fed, do what you like

Open your eyes, realize you're not dead
Take a look at an open book
Do what you like, that's what I said, do what you like

Do right, use your head, everybody must be fed
Get together, break some bread, yes together, that's what I said
Do what you like

Open your eyes, use your head, realize that you're not dead
Take a look at an open book, let it cook
That's what I said, do what you like
