Tapestry (1971)Edit

You're gonna find, yes you will, That you're beautiful as you feel.
  • I feel the earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumbling down — tumbling down
    I feel my heart start to trembling
    Whenever you're around
  • You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
    And show the world all the love in your heart
    The people gonna treat you better,
    You're gonna find, yes you will,
    That you're beautiful as you feel.
    • Beautiful
  • If there's any answer, maybe love can end the madness
    Maybe not, oh, but we can only try.
    • Beautiful
Way over yonder, that's where I'm bound.
  • Way over yonder is a place I have seen
    In a garden of wisdom from some long ago dream.
    • Way Over Yonder
  • Way over yonder, that's where I'm bound.
    • Way Over Yonder
You just call out my name And you know wherever I am I'll come running to see you again.
  • When you're down and troubled
    And you need some loving care
    And nothing, nothing is going right.
    Close your eyes and think of me
    And soon I will be there
    To brighten up even your darkest nights.
  • You just call out my name
    And you know wherever I am
    I'll come running to see you again.
    Winter, spring, summer, or fall
    All you have to do is call
    And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    You've got a friend.
    • You've Got a Friend
  • You can't talk to a man, with a shotgun in his hand.
    • Smackwater Jack
My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue An everlasting vision of the everchanging view...
  • Now ain't it good to know
    That you've got a friend
    When People can be so cold.
    They'll hurt you, kiss and desert you.
    And take your soul if you let them.
    Oh, but don't you let them.
    • You've Got a Friend
  • My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue
    An everlasting vision of the everchanging view
    A wondrous woven magic in bits of blue and gold
    A tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold.
    • Tapestry
  • He moved with some uncertainty, as if he didn't know
    Just what he was there for, or where he ought to go
    Once he reached for something golden hanging from a tree
    And his hand come down empty...
    • Tapestry
  • It seemed that he had fallen into someone's wicked spell
    And I wept to see him suffer, though I didn't know him well.
    • Tapestry


MisattributedEdit

  • And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
    Though we really did try to make it
    Somethin' inside has died and I can't hide
    And I just can't fake it.
    • Though King wrote the music for "It's Too Late", the lyrics were entirely written by Toni Stern.
