Pick me up, shake me out
And hang me on the line
I'm a fool for you

I looked up, saw you smile
And then I saw your eyes
I'm in love with you

You're too much for me
I'm a worn-out sail
On the sidewalk sea

There's a light
There's a fire shining day and night
It came burning through

Shine on me, shine on down
You keep me high and dry
I'm in love with you

You're too much for me
I'm a worn-out sail
On the sidewalk sea

Too many faces
Breaking aces half in two
Some guys in scarlet
Singing further down in the blues

Eyes on the sidewalk
They're ancient angry flashing true
Baby, it's too many mornings
Waking lonely cause of you

Time goes by
You break on down
You can't keep holding on
You don't know what to do

I looked up, saw you smile
I know I'm not so strong
No, and I'm in love with you

You're too much for me
I'm a worn-out sail
On the sidewalk sea

    General CommentProper love song.
    Written by Steve Forbert when he was still in his early/mid twenties.
    Just being honest, he was VERY good looking in the mid to late 1970's,.
    Well sung on the album, (Jackrabbit Slim), and top production from John Simon.
    On this evidence Steve Forbert should have worked with him more often.
