Pete Townshend

A Little Is Enough – Pete Townshend

They say that love often passes in a second
And you can never catch it up
So I’m hanging on to you as though eternity beckon
But it’s clear that the match is rough
Common sense’s tell me not to try’n continue
But I’m after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open
My spirit ain’t broken
Your love is so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
Just a little is enough

I’m like a connoisseur of champagne cognac
The perfume nearly beats the taste
I eat an oyster and I feel the contact
But more than one would be a waste
Some people want an endless line that’s true
But all I have to have’s a little time with you
A smile sets me reeling
A kiss feel like stealing
Your love is like heroin
This addict is mellowing
I can’t pretend that I’m tough
Just a little is enough

Just like a sailor heading into the seas
There’s a gale blowing in my face
The high winds scare me but I need the breeze
And I can’t head for any other place
Life would seem so easy on the other track
But even a hurricane won’t turn me back
You might be an island
On the distant horizon
But the little I see
Looks like heaven to me
I don’t care if the ocean gets rough
Just a little is enough

Common sense’s tell me not to try’n continue
But I’m after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open
My spirit ain’t broken
Your love is so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
Just a little is enough

A Friend Is A Friend – Pete Townshend

HOGARTH
When eyes meet in silence
A pact can be made
A life-long alliance
That won’t be betrayed
Be friendly, befriend me now
Be friendly

A friend is a friend
Nothing can change that
Arguments, squabbles
Can’t break the contract
That each of you makes
To the death, to the end
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend

WOODLAND CREATURES
Be friendly, befriend me now
(repeat 2 times)
Be friendly

HOGARTH
A promise is a promise
A handshake will seal it
No amount of discussion
Can ever repeat it
Commitment forever
To borrow or lend
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend
Be friendly, befriend me now
(repeat 2 times)
Be friendly

When eyes meet in silence, A pact can be made
BADGER You need a pact
A life-long alliance, That won’t be betrayed
CROW Won’t be betrayed
You need a mate
BADGER You need a mate
When facing the end
What is the fate
BADGER What is the fate
Now facing my friend
Facing my friend
What faces my friend
Be friendly, befriend me now
(repeat 2 times)

HOGARTH and WOODLAND CREATURES
A friend is a friend
Nothing can change that
Arguments, squabbles
Can’t break the contract
That each of you makes
To the death, to the end
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend

HOGARTH
Be friendly now
Be friendly now
Be friendly, befriend me now

A Fool Says – Pete Townshend

HOGARTH
A fool
Says love is like a melody
Or something like a symphony
But this is cacophony
Never changing key

We
We can’t fool our audience
We put up such a poor pretense
Don’t hide a shred of evidence
We have no defense

WOODLAND CREATURES
A fool says
Love is foolproof

HOGARTH
A fool says . . . .
We
We can’t fool our audience
We put up such a poor pretense
Don’t hide a shred of evidence
We have no defense

WOODLAND CREATURES
A fool says
Love is foolproof

O Parvardigar – Pete Townshend

O Parvardigar, the Preserver and Protector of all
Without beginning are you Lord without end
Non-dual , beyond compare, and none can measure You
Without color, expression, or form, nor attributes to live

You are unlimited and unfathomable
Imperishable beyond conception by our minds
Nothing can devied you ,oh God you are eternal
None can see you but with eyes divine

You always were, You always are, and always will be
You are everywhere, in everything and beyond
In the firmament above and in the deep
On all the seven planes and farther on
And in all that?s hidden to our eyes and always see

Beyond the trinity of words and in the vow
You can not be perceived or no one shall repent
O Parvardigar preserve protect us all
Without beginning are you Lord without end
You always were, You always are, and always will be

You are the Creator, the Lord of Lords
The knower of all minds and hearts
Omnipotent, omnipresent, from you we cower
You are Knowledge, Infinite Bliss, Infinite Power

You are the ocean of knowledge knowing all
Infinitely knowing, but can but tell
The knower of the past, the present and future
crowning even this, your knowledge it?s self

Oh merciful benevolent eternal
Your the trinity of Knowledge, Truth and Bliss
You are the scorce of Truth, The One with infinite attributes
You are the ocean of love we sorely miss

You always were, You always are, and always will be
You are the Ancient One, the Highest of the High
You are Prabhu and Parameshwar
You are the Beyond God, Beyond-Beyond God also
Parabrahma; Paramatma and Allah
Yezdan; Ahuramazda and God the Beloved

O Parvardigar, the Preserver and Protector of all
Without beginning are you Lord without end
You are named Ezad, the only one worthy of worship
We sing the universal prayer to you Amen

La La La Lies – Pete Townshend

If I’m so lost without a friend
Tell me, who’s this by my side?
This girl with eyes like gems
And cool reactions to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

You can’t repeat what you put ’round
All the things that made me cry
You kicked me when I was down
And they hurt me all those lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

I’ve got my girl and together we’re strong
To laugh at you and prove you wrong

I don’t insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don’t ever think you made me mad
I didn’t listen to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

If I’m so lost without a friend
Tell me, who’s this by my side?
This girl with eyes like gems
And cool reactions to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

I don’t insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don’t ever think you made me mad
I didn’t listen to your lies

I Am Secure – Pete Townshend

My room looks out to the wide open spaces
My heart is touched by awakening faces
I see the panic of people in motion
I can stand here, look out on an ocean.
I am a wall awaiting a catchword.
I see the city laid out like a patchwork.
Alone I am free from hatred and blindness
I hope that this life is frozen and timeless.
My man is here, we grow old by inches.
Tomorrow I’ll walk among heroes and princes.
I feed the boys, I hear secrets whispered.
I know the hearts that are battered and blistered.
I am secure
In this world of apartheid.
This is my cell, but it’s connected to star – light

I Am An Animal – Pete Townshend

I was always here in the silence
But I was never under your eye
Gather up your love in some wiseness,
For every memory shall always survive
And you will see me.

I am an animal
My teeth are sharp and my mouth is full
And the passion is so strong
When I’m alone, loneliness will change me

I am a vegetable
I get my body badly pulled
I’m rooted to the spot
Nothing will rearrange me

I’m looking back and I can’t see the past
Anymore so, hazy
I’m on a track and I’m traveling so fast
Oh for sure I’m crazy

I am a human being
I can’t believe all the things I’m seeing
I’ve nowhere to hide anymore
I’m losing my way

I am an angel
I booked in here I came straight from hell
I don’t know how to lie anymore
I’m bozzing to pray

I’m looking back and I can’t see the past
Anymore so, hazy
I’m on a track and I’m traveling so fast
Oh for sure I’m crazy

I was always here in the silence
But I was never under your eye
Gather up your love in some wiseness
for every memory shall always survive
And you will see me

I will be immersed
Queen of the fucking Universe
And I don’t know what I have anymore
Anymore than you do

I am a nothing king
Been right around on a golden ring
I don’t know where you are anymore
I’ve got no clue

I was always here in the silence
But I was never under your eye
Gather up your love in some wiseness
for every memory shall always survive
And you will see me

I am an animal

I Am Afraid – Pete Townshend

I stand beside you
I face the future
I’ll admit to you
I am afraid
I am afraid
As I stand beside you
I have denied you
I am afraid

I am not drunk now
I am not pilled down
My windows wound down
I am not brainwashed
I am not running
I am not hiding
My bet’s still riding
I am afraid

I swing you high-o
I swing you low-a
I see your eye-o
I see you grow-a
I hear you crying
Your brother’s dying
Be no more lying
I am afraid

I am afraid
As I stand beside you
I have denied you
I am afraid
I stand beside you
I face the future
I’ll admit to you
I am afraid

By my religion
I stand here naked
I cannot fake it
With God as witness
My little children
Who wait for feeding’
I watch you bleeding’
I am afraid

I am afraid
As I stand beside you
I have denied you
I am afraid
I stand beside you
I face the future
I’ll admit to you
I am afraid

Pete Townshend – Face The Face

Face the face, got to face the face
Face the face, got to face the face

You must have heard the cautionary tales
The dangers hidden on the cul-de-sac trails
From wiser men who’ve been through it all
And the ghosts of failures spray-canned up on the wall

We’ve got to judge the judge
Got to find the finds
We’ve got to scheme the schemes
Have to line the lines
We must stake the stakes
And show the shown
We must take the takes
And know the known
Try to place the place
Where we can face the face.
We got to face the face
Try to place the place
Where we can face the face
Face the face, got to face the face.
Face the face, got to face the face.

Got to
Got to

You must have tried and defied belief
Maybe found futility in insular grief
I need your hunger you need mine
A million appetites can swallow up time.

We’ve got to fool the fools
We got to plan the plans
We got to rule the rules
We got to stand the stands
We got to fight the fight
We must fall the falls
We got to light the light
We got to call the calls
We must race the race
So we can face the face
We got to race the race
We must race the race
So we can face the face
Face the face
We got to face the face
We got to race the race
We got to

Keep looking…..

New York! Chicago!
London and Glasgow!
Keep looking!

Keep on looking
Keep on cooking
Gotta stay on this case
Study the pix
Watch the flix
We’ve got to find the face.
Face the face ,got to face the face
Watch the flix
Got to

We’ve got to judge the judge
We got to find the finds
We’ve got to scheme the schemes
We got to line the lines
We got to fight the fight
We got to fall the falls
We got to light the light
We got to call the calls
Try to place the place
Where we can face the face.
We got to face the face…..
Try to place the place
Where we can face the face.
Try to place the place
Where we can face the face.
Keep looking, keep looking
We must race the race
So we can face the face.
We got to race the race
We must race the race.
So we can face the face
We got to face the face
We got to race the race

Pete Townshend – Face Dances (Part 2)

I watch you sit and twitching
With a match between your teeth
You seem to have a knack of moving it
It’s in time to the beat

Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight

I can’t be distracted
By the stuttering of the kids
I just sit enraptured
By your fluttering eye lids

Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight

I can only stare
You make me feel
Like I don’t care

I can only stare
You make me feel
Like I don’t care

I can only stare
You make me feel
Like I don’t care

Your eyes explain a story
That never had a start
Your brow reveals the glory
That’s hidden in your heart

Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight

Your skin is fine china
White as winter snows
Your lips are always shining
Turning up your nose

Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight
Fate chances moonlight

I can only stare
You make me feel
Like I don’t care
