Better Not Look Down
(Joe Sample, Will Jennings)

I´ve been around and i´ve seen some things
People moving faster than the speed of sound
Faster than the speeding bullet
People living like superman
All day and all night
And i won´t say if it´s wrong or if it´s right
I´m pretty fast myself
But i do have some advice to pass along
Along in the chorus of this song

Better not look down
If you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead
Better not look back
Or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving
If you don´t look down

An old girl friend of mine showed up the other day
That girl have lived in love and for love
And over love, and under love all her life
If the arrows from cupid´s bow that had
Passed through her heart had been sticking
Out of her body she would have looked like
A porcupine, and she asked me
B.b. do you think i´ve lived my life all wrong?
And i said: the only advice i have to pass
Along in the chorus of this song
Girl

Better not look down
If you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead
Better not look back
Or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving
If you don´t look down

I was walking down the street at sunrise one morning
In london, england
And there was a very large rolls royce limousine
Pulling slowly along the street
And in that rolls royce was the queen of england
Looking tired
Just go back from a party, and the queen leaned out and
She said: aren´t you b.b. king? she said:
Oh b.b., sometimes it´s so hard to pull things together
Could you tell me what you think i ought to do?
And i said:

Better not look down
If you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead
Better not look back
Or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving
If you don´t look down

All I Need To Know
(Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Tom Snow)

Look at my face. I know the years are showin’.
Look at my life. Still don’t know where it’s goin’.
I don’t know much, but I know I love you,
and that may be all I need to know.

Look at these eyes. Oh, they never see what matters.
And look at these dreams, so beaten and so battered.
I don’t know much, but I know I love you,
and that may be all I need to know.

So many questions and still no answers.
I climb and climb but never get the view.
But when I hold you near me sometimes I feel so clearly
the only truth I’ll ever know is me and you.

In my heart I long for inspiration.
And in my soul I know someday I’ll find salvation.
I don’t know much, but I know I love you,
and that may be all I need to know.

In my heart you’re my inspiration.
And in my soul I know love is our salvation.
I don’t kow much, but if I know you love me,
that will be all I need to know.

I don’t know much, but if you say you love me,
that will be all I need to know.
