Dusty Springfield

A Song For You – Dusty Springfield

I’ve been so many places
In my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs
I made some bad rhymes

I’ve acted out my life in stages
Ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now
I’m singing this song for you

I know your image of me
Is what I hope to be
I treated you unkindly
But darling can’t you see?
There’s no-one more important to me
Oh, baby, can’t you please see through me?
‘Cause we’re alone now and
I’m singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets
Of the truth withholding nothing
You came out in front
I was hiding
Oh, but now I’m so much better
If the words don’t come together
Just listen to the melody
‘Cause my love in there hiding
Ooh, ooh

Oh, I love you in a place
Where there’s no space or time
Love you for my life
You are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and
I was singing this song for you
We were alone
I was singing this song for you, oh
Singing
I was singing, singing, singing, singing, singing this song for you
Oh, yes
Singing this song for you

A Love Like Yours – Dusty Springfield

I broke your heart
And I made you blue
Instead of hurting back
You said “I love you”
That very day you won my heart
And my love for you shall never part

You have such an understanding way
And I appreciate you need what I say
‘Cause a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

Although I treated you bad from the start
Without question you gave me your heart
No, a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

It’s the little things you do
Oh, that mean so much
So very, very much
(Consideration), I never knew
That is, until I met you
Believe me

You made my life complete
And I know our love with all of my mind
You can believe gonna hold on tight
‘Cause a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

No, a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday

It’s the little things you do
That mean so much
So very very much
(Consideration), No I never knew
That is, until I met you
Believe me

You made my life complete
And I know our love with all of my mind
You can believe gonna hold on tight
‘Cause a love like yours don’t come knock, knock, knock, knocking
Knock, knocking everyday
I said a love like yours, it don’t come knocking
Knock, knocking everyday
I said a love like yours, it don’t come, it don’t come knocking
Knock, knocking everyday
‘Cause a love like yours, it don’t come knocking

A House Is Not A Home – Dusty Springfield

A chair is still a chair
Even though there’s no-one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there’s no-one there to hold you tight
And no-one there you can kiss goodnight

A room is still a room
Even though there’s nothing there but gloom
But a room is not a house
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your voice appears
But it’s just a crazy game
When it ends, it ends in tears

Darling, have a heart
Don’t let one mistake keep us apart
I’m not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs
And turn the key
Oh, please be there
Still in love with me

I’m not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs
And turn the key
Oh, please be there
Still in love with me

Yesterday When I Was Young – Dusty Springfield

Spoken : Somehow, it seems the love I knew was always the most destructive kind

Yesterday when I was young
The taste of life was sweet
As rain upon my tongue
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
The way the evening breeze
May tease the candle flame

The thousand dreams I dreamed
The splendid things I planned
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see how the time ran away

Yesterday when I was young
So many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my eyes refused to see
I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
I never stopped to think what life was all about
And every conversation that I can now recall
Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died
The friends I made all somehow seemed to slip away
And only now I’m left alone to end the play, yeah

Oh, yesterday when I was young
So many, many songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my eyes refused to see
There are so many songs in me that won’t be sung
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday
When I was young

Very Fine Love – Dusty Springfield

I never knew how good love could be
All I’d ever known was make believe
So many times I’ve played the fool
Baby, ’til I met you
Now everything has fallen in place
You can tell by the smile on my face
For every lonely tear that I’ve cried
I’m that much satisfied

We’ve got a fine, fine, very fine love
We’ve got a fine, fine, very fine love
You know it when you find one
Shining like a diamond

It’s so fine, fine, very fine love
How did I ever live without your love?
It’s the only thing I’m certain of
No matter what I’m going through
I know I can count on you

You are more precious to me every day
Life is better now in every way
You don’t have to lay the world at my feet
You have made my world complete

We’ve got a fine, fine, very fine love, oh, oh
We’ve got a fine, fine, very fine love
You know it when you find one
Shining like a diamond
It’s so fine, so fine, very fine love

I’ve got no apprehensions
You’ve got the best intentions
We’ve got a, we’ve got a, we’ve got a fine, fine, very fine love
We’ve got a fine, fine, very fine love
A very fine
A very fine love
Very fine love, ah, ha, ooh, hoo
So fine, hey, so fine
So good, so good love

Take Me For A Little While – Dusty Springfield

I’ve been trying
To make you love me
But everything I try
Just takes you further from me

You don’t love me, oh no
So you treat me cruel
But no matter how you hurt me
I’ll always be your fool

But if you don’t want me forever
And if you don’t need me forever
And if you can’t love me forever
Take me for a little while
So I can hold you, baby
So I can make you want me

I gotta stop it
There should be a law
‘Cause everytime you put me down
I love you more

And I feel so helpless
And it ain’t funny
‘Cause deep down inside I know
You’re never gonna love me

But if you don’t want me forever
And if you don’t need me forever
And if you can’t love me forever
Take me for a little while
So I can hold you, baby
So I can make you want me

I got to have you baby
Don’t you know anyway you want me I’m yours
Won’t you have me baby?
Anyway you want me I’m yours
Anything you want me to do

Packin’ Up – Dusty Springfield

So if I give up (yes, I’m packin’ up)
Movin’ out of the town (movin’ out of the town)
Packin’ up (yes, I’m packin’ up)
Movin’ out of the town (movin’ out of the town)
I’m not chained and I’m no longer bound

Said if I get up (yes, I’m packin’ up)
Movin’ out of the town (movin’ out of town)
Oh yeah (yes, I’m packin’ up)
Movin’ out of the town (movin’ out of the town)
I’m not chained and I’m no longer bound

My suitcase’s ready
My clothes are too
And these are the things
You took me through

My friends told me
All about you
That men are evil
The things you do
And I keep on (I’m not chained and I’m no longer bound)

And then I’m packin’ (yes, I’m packin’ up)
Movin’ out of the town (movin’ out of the town)
Oh yeah (yes, I’m packin’ up)
Movin’ out of the town (movin’ out of the town)
I’m not chained and I’m no longer bound

Now that I’m gone
Just look at me
I’m looking better than
Any girl you see

I’ve gotta brand new clothes
I gotta diamond ring
I gotta brand new man
He give me everything
So keep on (I’m not chained and I’m no longer bound)

And then I’m movin’ (movin’ movin’)
Oh, movin’ (movin’ movin’)
And I gotta move (movin’ movin’)
And I wanna move (movin’ movin’)
Oh yeah (movin’ movin’)
And I gotta move (movin’ movin’)
And I gotta move (movin’ movin’)
And I gotta move (movin’ movin’)
Start packin’ up (movin’ movin’)
Start packin’ up (movin’ movin’)
Start packin’ up (movin’ movin’)
Movin’ out of town (movin’ movin’)
Alright (movin’ movin’)
Yeah, yeah (movin’ movin’)
Start packin’ up (movin’ movin’)

Occupy Your Mind – Dusty Springfield

Satisfy your reason
It will occupy your mind
Even when you’re dreaming
Believe
Find another meaning
To determine what you need
Experience this feeling
And believe
Believe

In a world so confused
In a world so confused
In a world so confused
In a world so confused
Believe

Love will pierce the dark cloud
Of unknowing and reveal
All that you were dreaming
And believe
These communications
Will descend on you en masse
So what I’m saying, baby
Is believe
Believe

In a world so confused
If you feel love refused
Believe
In a life so defined
You could find time
To change your mind
Believe

In a world so confused
If you find love refused
Believe
In a life so defined
You could find time
To change your mind
Believe

Occupy your mind and you’ll believe
Occupy your mind and you’ll believe
Occupy your mind and you’ll believe
Believe

In a world so confused
In a world so confused
Believe
Occupy your mind and you’ll believe

Natchez Trace – Dusty Springfield

Oh, ho
He rode into Virginia
Rollin’ thunder, ridin’ high
I was servin’ table
Waitin’ for that ride

My arms around his body
Well, we rode a thousand miles
He taught me how to love
He taught me how to fly, oh, ho, my

Hungry together
Racin’ the weather
Into the Natchez Trace
Warmin’ and feedin’ him
All the way to Cumberland, oh, ho, yes

And I had his child in Memphis
And we watched him ride away
And now you know what a girl like me
Is doin’ here today
I’m sorry mister, you can’t stay

Hungry together
Racin’ the weather
Into the Natchez Trace
Warmin’ and feedin’ him
All the way to Cumberland, oh, ho, yes

And when the piper gets to play
Somebody’s got to pay
And now you know what a girl like me
Is doin’ here today
Oh, I’m sorry mister, you can’t stay
I’m sorry mister, you can’t stay

Hungry together
Racin’ the weather
Into the Natchez Trace
Warmin’ and feedin’ him
All the way to Cumberland, oh

When the piper gets to play
Somebody’s got to pay
And now you know what a girl like me
Is doin’ here today
Oh, I’m sorry mister, you can’t stay
I’m sorry mister, you can’t stay, oh, ho, ho, ho
Sorry mister, you can’t stay
Sorry mister, you can’t stay, no
Sorry mister, you can’t stay, oh, ho, ho, ho
Sorry mister, you can’t stay
Sorry mister, you can’t stay, no
Sorry mister, you can’t stay, oh
Sorry mister, sorry mister
