Out of the Blue

ELO

℗ 1977

Turn to Stone

The city streets are empty now
(The lights don't shine no more)
And so the songs are way down low.

A sound that flows into my mind
(The echoes of the daylight)
Of everything that is alive
(In my blue world).

I turn to stone, when you are gone,I turn to stone
Turn to stone, when you coming home? I can't go on.

The dying embers of a night
(A fire that slowly fades till dawn)
Still glow upon the wall so bright.

The tired streets that hide away
(From here to everywhere they go)
Roll past my door into the day
(In my blue world).

I turn to stone, when you are gone,I turn to stone
Turn to stone, when you coming home? I can't go on.

I turn to stone, when you are gone I turn to stone.

Yes I'm turning to stone 'cos you ain't coming home
Why ain't you coming home if I'm turning to stone
You've been gone for so long and I can't carry on
Yes, I'm turning, I'm turning I'm turning to stone.

The dancing shadows on the wall
(The two-step in the hall)
Are all I see since you've been gone.

Through all I sit here and I wait
(I turn to stone, I turn to stone)
You will return again some day
(To my blue world).

I turn to stone, when you are gone,I turn to stone
Turn to stone, when you coming home? I can't go on.

I turn to stone, when you are gone I turn to stone.

I turn to stone, when you are gone,I turn to stone
Turn to stone, when you coming home? I can't go on.

I turn to stone, when you are gone I turn to stone.

It's Over

It's over, it's over, it's over

Summer came and passed away
Hardly seemed to last a day
But it's over
And what can I do?

Music playing in the air
Silence on a darkened stair
'Cos it's over
And what can I do?

It's over, it's over, all over It's all over now
And the way you looked
Don't even mean I'm down, It's over
When you kick out the sea
And the sun says goodbye
There is nothing much to speak of...

Looking over sunny days
Searching for the righteous wave
'Cos it's over
And what can I do?

Looking from this distant shore
You ain't sailing by no more
'Cos it's over
And what can I do?

It's over, it's over, all over It's all over now
And the way you looked
Don't even mean I'm down, It's over
When you kick out the sea
And the sun says goodbye
There is nothing much to speak of...

It's over, it's over, it's over It's all over
And what can I do?

It's over, it's over, it's all over

It's over, yeah it's over Don't shed a tear for me,
It's over, don't shed a tear although it's over.

Sweet Talkin' Woman

I was searching on a one-way street
I was hoping for a chance to meet
I was waiting for the operator on the line
(She's gone so long) What can I do?
(Where could she be?) Don't know what I'm gonna do
I gotta get back to you.

Slow down, sweet talking woman
You got me running ,ou got me searching
Hold on, sweet talking lover
It's so sad if that's the way it's over .
Sweet talking woman.

I was walking, many days go by
I was thinking, about the lonely nights
Communication breakdown all around
(She's gone so long) What can I do?
(Where could she be now?) Don't know what I'm gonna do
I gotta get back to you.

Slow down, sweet talking woman
You got me running ,ou got me searching
Hold on, sweet talking lover
It's so sad if that's the way it's over .
Sweet talking woman.

I've been living on a dead-end street
I've been asking everybody I meet
Insufficient data coming through
(She's gone so long) What can I do?
(Where could she be?) Don't know what I'm gonna do
I gotta get back to you.

Slow down, sweet talking woman
You got me running ,ou got me searching
Hold on, sweet talking lover
It's so sad if that's the way it's over .
Sweet talking woman.

Steppin' Out

Pack up all your things
We're gonna be leaving
Sooner than I thought
Take the things you bought
Clouds are gathering.

Say goodbye to all your friends
We're gonna be sorry
For a while, that's how it goes
But then again, who knows
About the rain.

I'm steppin' out I'm moving on
I'm gonna see the world Like a rolling stone
I'm gonna be somebody... Oh, I'm steppin' out.

Did you hear what he said?
He said they sold me down the river
They thought I was a fool
They said the rain would fall
What did they know?

Then I saw your face
And the song that you were singing
Though I thought I knew the words
The tune was quite absurd and out of key
Doo dah dah dee.

I'm steppin' out I'm moving on
I'm gonna see the world Like a rolling stone
I'm gonna be somebody... Oh, I'm steppin' out.

I'm steppin' out, I'm steppin' out ....

Don't know where I'm going
Gonna see the world, gonna be somebody
Don't know where I'm going
I'm just steppin' out I'm steppin' out I'm steppin' out.
