Steve Winwood Nov 6, 1990 UK: VIRGIN CDV 2650 and US: VIRGIN 2-91405
# Title Duration
1 Play You'll Keep on Searching (Winwood, Jennings)
You've been searching high and low, still so far to go
You've been searching everywhere, I know you care
Walking down the endless street, what will you meet?
Who knows, who knows?

You'll keep on searching till the very end
For one true lover and for one true friend
You'll get your answer on the whispering wind
When you find it, just don't let go

Laughed with saints and cried with clowns, lived that up and down

Walked out in the pouring rain to stop your pain
Cried out on a mountain high, why life goes by?
Why love can die, oh why?

2 Play Every Day (Oh Lord) (Winwood, Jennings)
I can feel the music deep down inside of me
When I see the new day rising, h it sets me free
Like a melody coming, what will it be?
I love life again though I don't know how this day will finally end
Each day is music - reach till I find the song
Every day I keep on singing

Every day, every day, every day, oh lord
Every day, every day, every day, oh lord
And my soul is still strong, every day I sing my song

What a world of trouble we are all asked to bear
But we have to keep on living, find our strength somewhere
And I choose to keep on hoping, faith is still there
There are mysteries unbound, there is truth we've lost and found
The song lines are there, they will bring us back around
Deep in the heart they play, every day
Love life again, though you don't know how this day will finally end
Each day is music - reach till you find the song
Every day just keep on singing

Reaching for the stars, for the song of us all
Looking through the lonely night for a faith that will not fall for morning
Glad I'm here when morning comes, here when morning comes
One more day to keep on singing

3 Play One and Only Man (Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi)
Every time I see you, girl, it makes me feel so sad
Knowing you've been seeing some other guy that treats you bad
Did you know I'm burning deep inside for you?
Just give me the chance now and we can see it through
If you'll be my woman, I'll be your one and only man

Gonna take you with me far away from hearts of stone
We'll live in the country and raise some children of our own
I will be your lover, I will be your friend
I'll give you my loving, on that you can depend
If you'll be my woman, I'll be your one and only man

And there'll be no more crying, I'll make your dreams come true
You know I'll never turn my back on you

Take you to the city, girl, we're gonna buy some clothes
Dress you up so pretty and then we'll take in all the shows
Find a place that's jumping, where the music's tight
And we'll keep on dancing 'til the morning light

If you'll be my woman, I'll be your one and only man, oh yeah
If you'll be my woman, I'll be your man
Know I'm gonna give you everything I can
If you'll be my woman, I'll be your man,
There'll be no more running, gonna make a stand

4 Play I Will Be Here (Winwood, Jennings)
Cry, you would cry in my arms
Far, far from the world and its harms
That kind of love begun is never done
I'll be here at close of day
When you bring your heart home to stay

I will be here when you call
I will be here standing tall
I will be here, you won't fall
Don't you know that love will save us after all?

Come - when cold winter blows
Come - when sweet summer glows
And all your wandering years will disappear
There are places inside the heart
We'll touch like we've done from the start

Almighty time rolls on, let's not spend it all alone
We are here, then we're gone

5 Play Another Deal Goes Down (Winwood, Jennings)
Midnight comes and the devil's loose
What you want? He's got everything there
What you've got he'll take
And leave you in the cold

One more soul drowns, another deal goes down
The night is full of danger, another deal goes down

On the street, the refugees
From a war that was lost in the heart
No one wants to see them
And the fire is burning slow

Tell me what you're searching for, will you, sister?
Emptiness inside, you will never fill it up with another thrill

Money's spent, all the words are said
Nothing helps, streets are falling apart
Through the night they're burning and the devil's on a roll

6 Play Running On (Winwood, Jennings)
All over the night, the beat goes on
Can you hear it? Can you feel?
Through the years music keeps running
The beat keeps running on, on and on

And I'll always be feeling it, and I won't slow down
Just as long as those wheels go round
I'll be riding that fast train to Memphis
On that sweet R & B
Till that green grass way down home grows up over me

Somewhere in this world a child is born
He can hear, he can feel it
Just like me, he'll keep it running
He'll keep it running on, on and on

7 Play Come Out and Dance (Winwood, Jennings)
Come out and dance with me, darling, on that funky side of town
Come out and rock with me, baby, shake it up and dance it down
When you hear that good band play, it'll make you want to fool around
You can't sit down

I've got some moves for you, baby, that I learned from way back when
I've got a feel for you, baby, you'll believe in love again
When I knock on you door, you'll let me in
In love again

We go round and round, don't know where we're bound
Long as there's a beat I'll hang around, for one more round

Now baby, don't read the papers, 'cause they always make you sad
And honey, don't watch the TV 'cause the news is always bad
Come and dance with me tonight and you know your heart will be so glad
So very glad

Baby, don't you know the reason grandma smiles at grandpa so?
Grandpa can still keep it moving like he did so long ago
Grandma says, "Hold me tight and don't let go"
Like years ago

Baby this is true romance, take it while you see a chance
If we got everyone dancing, wouldn't be no time for war
If they got into the feeling, they'd find out what life is for
Every day you'd hear them say, "This has got to be what life is for"
And dance some more

8 Play In the Light of Day (Winwood, Jennings)
Had a dream last night, the angels had come riding
In the light of day where there was no more hiding
All so fine, I still see them shine
I saw angels play right in the light of day

And I watched them fly across a fiery sky
And I heard their cry as they passed me by
I could feel the light inside me, I could feel it everywhere
Life was clear and fair

Woke up in the dark and tried to keep believing
In the light I saw, in time of constant grieving
Vision fair, please don't disappear
And please hear my prayer there in the light of day

When I look within I see them shine again
As the darkness ends and the light begins
I can feel the light inside me, I can feel it everywhere
They are all still there

On the street tonight the innocent are dying
And the world's not right, so many millions crying
Evil lives and hate never gives, hell is never far
And is this all we are?

Oh, Lord, hear us cry, up in the fiery sky
That our souls may fly to you when we die
Help us feel the light inside us, help us feel it everywhere
Oh, Lord, be there
