Maxine

This song is by Alex Harvey and appears on the album Roman Wall Blues (1969).

Maxine's lost her madness
It's the sadness that's the badness in her life
All the days tomorrow
Will I borrow from the sorrow in her life

Where do you find the justice?
Do I leave her? Am I causing her despair?
It seems that she's outgrown me
Both in beauty and in mind. My mind's elsewhere

Come all you Maxines everywhere
Be mad again, be gay, let down your hair
Without your laughter come the cloud
Of gloom among the faces of the crowd, yeah

Lately I have noticed
You have though to change your image; or have I?
It seems to me the laughter
Somehow faded from yur face, now you cry

Lets all of us shed salty tears
We'll make a sea, and hope the sun will shine
We'll feel the sand between our toes
Forget our hearts and reach out for the line

Come all you Maxines everywhere
Be mad again, be gay, let down your hair
Without your laughter come the cloud
Of gloom among the faces of the crowd, yeah

Maxine's lost her madness
Without gladness will the world survive? Will I?
Without her there's no party
There's no nightlife, there's no daylife, there's no I

If peace prevailed throughout the world
And we could hear the sound of silent guns
Maybe we could live
To leave a legacy of laughter for our sons

Come all you Maxines everywhere
Be mad again, be gay, let down your hair
Without your laughter come the cloud
Of gloom among the faces of the crowd, yeah

Maxine's lost her madness
It's the sadness that's the badness in her life
