  1. Person to person, I'm calling Sending my love across the line Person to person, no secrets I need to talk to you tonight You know you're not the only one Who's had to deal with life's disappointments You know you're not the only one Who's had his whole world fall apart So if it's sympathy you need You've got plenty of company But the heart was made to bleed And keep beating on I heard you gave your love to someone else All he did was take you for granted And when he broke your heart You swore you'd never trust love again But I don't ask that much And I'm not ashamed to admit it (Oh no) 'Cause love is in your touch You're just afraid to let go So Baby Person to person, I'm calling Sending my love direct to you Person to person, no distance Can keep me away from getting through Oh, Oh, Oh Stop worrying Open Up Just talk to me Tell me what's inside You don't have to hide from me Person to person, I'm calling Sending my love direct to you Person to person, no distance Can keep me away from getting through Oh, Oh, Oh I guarantee Trust your heart You wait and see I won't let you down Oh, Oh, Oh Stop worrying Open up Just talk to me Tell me what's inside You don't have to hide from me Person to person Person to person
  2. Everyday I get up I work my fingers to the bone My boss and my job They got me livin' in the Twilight Zone But I know, Yes I know I'm just an average guy Lost inside the promised land The All-American boy Still living off my dreams and plans And my hopes, Yes I know Tell me I'm old-fashioned I don't mind The grand illusion keeps me goin' Say I'm just a dreamer That's alright Stick around and I'll show ya I'll get lucky I'll feel good I'll get the wind at my back And sail right into Hollywood I'll get lucky The American dream I'll be on my way Crusin' down on Easy Street Way back on Easy Street Tell me I'm crazy I don't mind I believe it Lady luck is waiting Just for me I can feel it I'll get lucky I'll feel good I'll get the wind at my back And sail right into Hollywood I'll get lucky The American dream I'll be on my way Crusin' down on Easy Street Way back on Easy Street
  3. I've been all around the world In nearly every city London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Toyko I've stood inside the Berlin Wall I've seen the Eiffel Tower One rainy night in Montreal I shouted "Rock-n-roll" I saw a monkey steal the show Way down in Mexico But the southbound Ryan It takes me home The southbound Ryan I love that road People always ask me why I still live in the city Seems half the population Took the bus to Hollywood I just smile at them And say "Baby I like the weather" Maybe it's courage Maybe it's fear Hell all my friends are here This town is a habit I can't break The city on the make The southbound Ryan Damn that road Southbound Ryan Take me home The southbound Ryan Damn that road Southbound Ryan I love that road Southbound Ryan Damn that road Southbound Ryan Take me home Everybody say "Yeah" I said "Yeah"

    Black Wall

    For those who served, whether by choice or chance and have cried "Back To The World" I was lucky you know I wasn't there And I didn't have to go and face my fear But still this hidden pain comes up from the belly of the beast And even ten years past We're haunted now from both sides of the truth And the ghosts of Ðiên Biên Phú This war keeps hangin' on as if it were today 'Cause many a good man died on the road from Têt to Huê They won every battle they fought But the one that raged at home And now the only words that count Are the names carved out in stone As tears fall onto stone Black wall Black wall (My God) Black wall Black wall Sound the bugle boy for a twenty-one gun salute Call for the ticker tape and assemble all the troops Not a word about Dominoes or the horrors of Napalm Let Johnny come marching home and greet him with a prayer and a Psalm For the boys of Vietnam The boys of Vietnam Let him, let him Let Johnny come back to the world Back to the world Back to the world
  5. Heaven knows The time is right I need a change in my direction New excuses, new alibis New ways to chase the same old dream I made my choice I hope I'm right Gonna fix my situation No more chasing after miracles Four-leaf clovers, wishing wells Too many tomorrows I've waited for But I ain't gonna be that fool anymore 'Cause I know The change has gotta come And ready or not I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers I'm gonna shout it to the world Ready or not I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears Stop feeling sorry for myself 'Cause tears ain't gonna help this time Disappointment's been my address I can't believe I let it happen But tell the postman that I've moved for good And I don't live there anymore And ready or not I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers I'm gonna shout it to the world Ready or not I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears Stop feeling sorry for myself These tears ain't gonna help this time Ready or not I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers I'm gonna shout it to the world Ready or not I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears Stop feeling sorry for myself These tears ain't gonna help this time

    DDY Podcast

    When they were first released, I wasn't always downloading them when I listened to them. Now I'm trying to archive them and it looks like I am missing some episodes that do not seem to be available online. I'm not sure if it's a numbering issue or if they just aren't available. I'm looking for episodes 6-11, which would have been released in February/March of 2017
  7. https://ultimateclassicrock.com/rock-concept-albums/?fbclid=IwAR2KwL03pCMY7LSfbodJ2CvKaCe2K4xxxscicu_Vi-Qgyd1Ntc4kA4S9FlE Love it or hate it, the concept album is a part of rock history.
  8. You can post whatever you want! That's what the site is here for. I'm pretty sure the podcasts are done, as it's been about a year and a half since the last one. Since there are a lot of different ways podcasts are handled (either through another company that pays the author of the podcast, or done independently by the author) it may or may not start up again in the future. I would like to archive them here, but not until they are no longer available anywhere else. (It's interesting that it is not available in iTunes for the United States)

    Call Me

    Rain began to fall softly As she gazed around the room Even now she wondered what went wrong A letter in her hand trembled As she placed it by the phone All at once there were footsteps by the door She didn't want a confrontation To tear them apart She wasn't sure of all the feelings Racing through her heart I looked into her eyes Knowing something wasn't right And suddenly the tears began to show Babe I know that it's wrong But you know I'm really not that strong How I wish I could tell you that I am But before I even read this letter I want you to stay But if I see your mind's made up There's just one thing I've got to say You can call me Baby if you ever change your mind Believe me when I say to you Anytime will be alright You can call me Only seven numbers on the phone Maybe we can talk things over You're never that far from home Oh, no, no, baby you're not along Another season Another change Two hearts are breaking With no one to blame I know the reasons You want to go But if you find that you still want me There's one thing that you know You can call me Baby if you ever change your mind Believe me when I say to you Anytime will be alright You can call me Only seven numbers on the phone Maybe we can talk things over You're never that far from home

  13. I'm a little hesitant on any kind of copying content directly, even if for an archival purpose. I don't want to "steal" the content, but maybe could share the link to his post and have it as a discussion starter. I'm sure it's important to Dennis to have the views on his page and the number of likes increasing, and if I copy that material he could lose those numbers, which I would want to support. I do a similar thing with articles that I find interesting. I will post a link, but not the content of the article so I don't get the content provider upset. To trace back to the roots of DDY Talk, it was created at a time when Dennis didn't even have an active website. His older website, GrandIllusionMusic.com, had been "on hiatus" for quite some time, and the only other solely DDY website was the Don't Wait for Heroes website, that hadn't had any new content for quite some time. This is a huge contrast to now, where he has a Facebook presence, and has even done podcasts. I don't want to seem like I'm stealing his content. I agree that Facebook comments stink. "When are you coming to (insert town name here)?" over and over. I think there is a place for discussion.
  14. I bet I know what forum you were at I am really hoping that things can stay positive here, as it pretty much did in the past. By focusing just on what Dennis is doing, there are plenty of good things going on that there is no room for negativity. (Plus I think I have it in the term and conditions that by design this site is one-sided, and if your viewpoints are the complete opposite and you come to troll you will be promptly removed.) Dennis has a pretty heavy schedule this summer, touring with two different sets, plus a couple of symphony shows. Then there is the song from Jim Peterik's album, and Dennis' album-in-the-works. Mark's "Styxtoury" pages on Facebook are good too. He presents all information from all musicians involved with Styx at one point or another and focuses on the music created.
