Sad eyes - interlude - 15-Feb-1977 version

Til the end
Just me and you baby
Just me and you girl
I remember
I-i-i-i remember
I was gonna take all the money out of the bank
And you were gonna quit your job
And I was gonna quit my job too.
And I remember that you promised, I remember you swore you was never...
Never gonna leave, never gonna go anyplace...without me
I remember you promised, we both swore that you were never gonna go anyplace
(?)
(sings) I remember, I remember
I remember it was chilly and I was standing at the bus station
Standing there in the rain
(sings) And the rain came tumbling down
I remember the buses were pulling in
And I was standing there and I remember that you promised that you
were never gonna go anyplace without me
(sings) And the rain came tumbling down
I was standing there waiting for you I was just thinking of all of the
things that you promised. That you were never gonna go anyplace
without me.

(sings) And the rain came tumbling down
And the rain came tumbling down

I was standing there in the rain. That’s when...
(piano, then bells start, then build)

I was standing there waiting for you
And I figured it all out
Had it all figured out

(bells build)

YOU LIED!!!!
YOU LIED!!!!
YOU LIED!!!!
YOU LIED!!!!
(screamed at the TOP of his lungs)


Hiding on the backstreets…

Notes: This interlude was sang after Backstreets and evolved night by night, from 1976/7 (where it contained some references to New York City serenade lyrics) to end 1978, trowing the base of what will later become Backstreets. Various states of this evolution are presented here.


Sad eyes - interlude - 07-Jul-1978 version

Til the end
I remember you
Baby I remember you
Standin’ on the corner
Of Richmond Avenue
And I remember I'd
I remember back then I
I'd drive all night
I swore I'd drive all night
Just to buy you some shoes
And to taste
And to taste your tender charms
To have you hold me in your arms
To have you hold me in your arms
And for just one look
For just one look
From your sad eyes
I have such pretty sad eyes
I have such pretty sad eyes
I remember them cry all night
They cried all night
They cried till they're all dry
They cried all night
Baby they cried all night
But I hate
............. me and you baby
............. me and you baby
The way they could lie
The way they could lie
They could tell such pretty lies
They could tell such pretty lies
And now you're back
And now you're back
Well little girl I'm back too
And I have
And I've seen some things
And right now I've seen some things
Well now I've seen some things
And baby I ..............too
..........me and you
All I wanna know is why
All I wanna know is why
All I wanna know is why
Why
Baby I wanna know why
Baby I just
I want you
I want you to look into my face
Just look into my face
Just look into my face
Look into my face
Look into my face
Look into my face
Tell me why
Well I wanna know why
You lied
You lied
You lied
You lied

Sad eyes - interlude - 19-Sep-1978 version

Baby I remember you
Baby I remember you
Standin’ on the corner
Standin’ on the corner
Of Kingsley Avenue[1]
With your hair all up high
With your hair all up high
With your hair all up high
With an eye for every boy
That was passin’ you by
And I swore for you I’d drive
For you little girl I’d drive
All night long
Little girl I’d drive all night long
Little girl I’d drive all night long
Just to buy you some shoes
And to taste your tender charms
To have you hold me in your arms
For just one kiss
And a look from your sad eyes
Yeah a look from your sad eyes
You have such pretty sad eyes
And all the time almost crying
Cry cry cry
All the time they was crying
Cry cry cry
Little girl they was crying
And me I was so ready to be your fool
I thought somehow that I could stop that your cryin’
Baby somehow I could stop your cryin’
Baby somehow I could stop your cryin’
But I didn’t know
I didn't know
That baby you’d been lyin’
Baby you’d been lyin’
Little girl you’d been lyin’
Little girl you’d been lyin’
Little girl you’d been lyin’
Your pretty lies
All that girl lies
And now you’re back
Well baby I’m back too
And I’m gonna say some things
About me, about you
And I thought that
We got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to stop
Little girl we got to STOP

Sad eyes - interlude - 15-Dec-1978 version

Til the end
Hello baby,
Is good to see you back again
Honey you still are fine
It's been such a long long time
Baby I remember you
Baby I remember you
And I know you remember me too
And I know you you checked outside the town with someone else
And you remember that stripped down Cadillac
The one you used to take me ridin' in back
The one you used to take me ridin' in back
And I know you remember
Goin' down down and down on the inside
Slippin' down down and down to the inside
Slippin' down down and down to the inside
Slippin' down in a way that will you remember on the outside
You were cryin' in the street
On the inside
Slippin' down down and down on the outside
The cops on the corner
On the inside
Slippin' down down and down
And I remember I swore a long long time ago
I swore that for you I'd drive all night anytime anyplace
I'd drive all night
Just to buy you some shoes
Just to buy you a Christmas present
Just to check it out
Just to see how you do it
Just, just for one sweet kiss
Just for one
Just to hear you say that you love me
Now I remember that you promised
That you'd never leave without me
I remember way back then
You promised you'd never leave without me
I remember way back then you promised
And like everything else you know these days
You promised...
And you lied
You lied
Little girl you lied
Little girl you lied
So now you come back and I wanna know why
I wanna know why
I wanna know why
I wanna know why
And I wanna know just what you make you think
I mean what you make you think it's so easy
I mean just what you make you think
Just what you make you think it's so easy to
To stop me
To stop me
To stop
To stop
To stop
Stop
Stop
Stop
Stop
Stop
Stop
STOP
Hiding on the backstreets…

Sad eyes - interlude - Unknown date version

'Til the end
Just me and you baby
Just me and you girl
And I remember you even back then
And I remember you from back then
And I remember back then that I swore that for you I'd drive all night
Anytime, anyplace
That for you I'd drive all night
Anytime, anyplace
That for you I'd drive all night
Anytime, anyplace
That for you I'd drive all night
Through the wind
Through the rain
Through the snow
Just to buy you some shoes
Just to check you out
Just to kiss that pretty face
Just to taste your tender charms
Just to sleep
Just to sleep
In your arms

Babe, maybe you wasn't even listening
Maybe you wasn't even listening
But I remember you promised that you'd never go anyplace without me
You swore that you'd never go anyplace without me
You promised that you'd never leave without me
You swore that you'd never leave without me
And like everything else
And everybody else from back then you promised
And baby you lied
Baby you lied
Baby you lied
Baby you lied
Little girl you lied

So now you've come back
So now you've come back
So now you've come back
But just what makes you think that it's so easy
Just what makes you think
That it's so easy
Just to stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
