Any day now
Any day now, i will hear you say,
"goodbye my love" you'll be on your way
And my wild, beautiful bird,
You will have flown, yeah!
Any day now, i'll be all alone
And you won't be around

Any day now, when your restless eyes meet someone new
To my sad surprise
And the blue shadows will fall all over town,
Any day now, you won't be around
Any love will let me down

I shouldn't want to keep you if you don't want to stay
And until you're gone forever
I'll be holding on for dear life, holding on
Holding you this way
And i'm begging you to stay

Any day now, when the clock strikes go, you'll go away
Then my tears will fall
And the blue shadows will fall all over town, yeah!
Any day now, you won't be around,
And love will let me down
Baby it's you
It's not the way you smile
That touches my heart
It's not the way you kiss
That tears me apart

(*) many, many, many nights go by
I sit alone
At home i cry
Over you
What can i do
Can't help myself
'cause baby it's you

You should hear what they're saying about you
They say you've never
Never, never been true
Oh! no! no!
It doesnt matter what they say
I'm gonna love you any old way
What can i do
When it's true
Don't want nobody
'cause baby it's you

Repeat (*)
Knowing when to leave
Go while the going is good
Knowing when to leave may be
The smartest thing anyone can learn, go!
I'm afraid my heart isn't very smart
Fly while your still have your wings
Knowing when to leave won't let you reach
The point of no return, fly!

Foolish as it seems
I still have my dreams
So i keep hoping, day after day
As i wait for the man
And each night after night as i wish
For the love he can be
Though i'm sure that no one can tell what are
Whishes and hopefully, somehow i fell
There is happiness waiting for me

When someone walks in your life
You just better be sure he's right
'cause if he's found out, heartches and tears you must pay
Keep both of your eyes on the door
Never let it get out of sight
Just be prepared when the time has come
You aren't away
Sail when the wind starts to blow
Bul like a fool i don't know when to leave
Make it easy on yourself
If you really love her
And there is nothing i can do
Don't try to spair my feelings
Just tell me that we are through
And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself...
'cause breaking up is so very hard to do

If the way i hold you
Can't compare to her caress
No words of consolation will make me miss you less
My darling... if this is goodbye
I just know i want to cry...
So run to her before you start crying too
And make it easy on yourself...
Make it easy on yourself...
'cause breaking up is so very hard to do

And make it easy on yourself
Make it easy on yourself, easy on yourself
Cause breaking up is so very hard to do
(there's) always something
There to remind me
If you should miss
The sweet and tender love we used to share
That we used to share
Just go back to the places where we used to go
And i'll be there
Oh, how can i forget you
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me
I was born to love you
I will never be free
You'll always be a part of me

When there is always something there to remind me
I'll never fall in love again
Don't tell me what it's all about
'cause i've been there and i'm glad i'm out
Out of those chains, those chains that blind you
That is why i'm here to remind you
Here to remind you
Here to remind you
Here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So for at least until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
Oh, i'll never fall in love again
Walk on by
If you see me walking down the street
And i start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by, walk on by
Make believe you don't see the tears
Just let me breathe in private
'cause each time i see you i break down and cry
Walk on by
I just can't get over losing you
So if i should seem broken and blue
Walk on by, walk on by
Foolish pride that's all that i have left
So let me have the tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said good-bye
Walk on by, by
Do you know the way to san jose
Do you know the way to san jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to san jose?
I'm going back to find some place of mind san jose
L.a. is a great big freeway
Put a $100 down and buy a car
In a week, maybe two they'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years, that quick they pass
And all the stars there never were
Are parking cars and punping gas

I've got lots of friends in san jose
Can't wait to get back to san jose
Do you know the way to san jose?
