ALPHABETICAL ORDER

 

All Weathers                            

She remained a good time in all weathers

Good or bad to him was all terrain

A solemn reminder of a gesture

You treat the world, the world treats you the same

Daylight is the same as night time

When noise is the only quiet you get

And then become accustomed with inclement

To all that nothing possibly could net

 

Breeze is in from the stillness

Looking in the forest for the trees

And see nothing for a viewpoint

An outlook with just no point of view

The atmosphere so clear of complication 

A storm will bring them safely through

Her thought of knowing what’s together

Apart from all he never could undo

 

She’ll see the world through the window

He’ll close his eyes and fathom at the beach

Then would see the best in nearly nothing

Beyond no limits out of reach

She lights up the city on a bad night

Don’t all the colours reappear

Through the night and glowing like an angel

It’s nice to feel the love the way she feels

 

She remained a good time in all weather

Good or bad to her was all the same

A solemn reminder of a gesture

You treat the world, the world treats you the same

Daylight is the feeling of night time

And nothing is the only quiet you get

And then become accustomed with inclement

To all that nothing possibly could net

 

She will see the world through the window

He’ll close his eyes and fathom at the beach

She would see the best in nearly nothing

Beyond all limits out of reach

And she lights up the city on a bad night

Don’t all the colours reappear

Through the night and glowing like an angel

It’s nice to feel the love the way she feels

Behind Fire 

You’re gonna wait for the day to ignore this feeling nothing of substance that you see

Like a glass of wine in your hand or your feet stuck in the sand

None of this is relevant to me

Waves of your world they are surrounding behind fire you did what you could do

And impossible me and no one knows but the trees 

With no one else to do a thing for you

 

My words are for you to remember roughly what it was that you said

And then I’d gone and heard no less but one word we’ll never see the path quite like you led

You’ll never run away from the thoughts in your head

 

Waves of worlds they are surrounding behind fire you did what in hell you could do

And impossible me no one knows but the trees 

With no one else to do a thing for you

All of your friends they don’t know this you did just what you had to do

Life may come easy but you may never see the unforgettable different point of view

The unforgettable different point of you

 

Oohhhh

Believe Me 

Sometimes it feels like my hat’s on wrong I look away to see the day is gone

Once again there is a way for me all that I have seems so far to see

Oh soul come back to me

 

Paint the days and put them aside leave it all behind and let it ride

If you go back again there you’ll understand set your feet back down on your own land

And lend a helping hand

 

If you believe then you’ll imagine now

Open your eyes you’ll see you’ve won somehow

Relax your mind and set your difference free

You are the one and you will always be

 

Inside the room are there people there inside their minds are the ways to care

Take a breath sit back and look ahead reminds me of the warrior I just read

But is that you instead, is that you instead

 

There will be time for discovery the days are better now that we’re more free

Won’t you come here what I’ve said is known they’re gone I see you missed your ride so come along

Let’s just keep moving on

 

If you believe then you’ll imagine now

Open your eyes you’ll see you’ve won somehow

Relax your mind and set your difference free

You are the one and you will always be

 

Believe, believe, believe

 

Sometimes it feels like my hat’s on wrong I look away to see the day has dawned

Once again there is a way for me, all that I have it seems so far to sea

Oh soul it back to me, oh soul it back to me, oh soul come back to me

Oh soul come back to me, Oh soul come back to me

Better Than Dying of Boredom       

Walking along the street alone trying to find find my way back home

The sun shines bright right through my eyes can’t focus no surprise

Nothing but deceit and lies

 

Lost one shoe it’s no matter same bad luck never gets any better

See the vines at the end of the ladder grab on and sing

Sing Mad Hatter

 

Dazed an abused ya what a sham life to you is but a sticky jam 

People walking by are the ones with no ride busy walking by, busy walking by

Keep on walking by

 

Having known what it’s like to pick from the tree when the fruit isn’t right

Going to the limits of the mine having no trouble with a fine

Better keep in line

 

Dazed and amused ya what a scam life to you is but a sticky jam 

The people walking by are the ones with no rye busy walking by, busy walking by

Keep on walking by, walking by, walking by, walking by

 

Ahhhhhh

 

Better than dying of boredom

 

Walkin along the street alone a drink in my hand and I’m soaked to the bone

The sun shines white right through my eyes I can’t focus, no surprise

Nothing but deceit and lies

Blackness is Relentless          

Look into the sunset daylight fades away the nightfall darkens purple on the horizon

Soft glowing twilight the day starts to cool evening out the years of toil and labour

The heat just won’t stop until late in the night when the clouds disappear and there the moon shine

Gradual decline just work your life away wondering just where it was I went wrong

One step from simple is the best I could do for you laying on the water cold and dark

Light up the room call it the close of the day and let it all disappear till the morning 

 

The blackness is relentless pushing in on making it through the day

All you really need is lightness and it’s simply something about your way

 

Found a way to let the steam so ever grey vacate like a runaway lane on the mountain

Further down below relaxed or so it seems and just pretend that there is no problem

You went away again made it all downstream nothing to it just keep rowing on

Blackness is there and it’s you and you know that everything is what I care about you

 

The blackness is relentless pushing in on making it through the day

All you really need is lightness and it’s simply something about your way

Boredom

Lightning burns a hole in a stone

Then some time awoke to hear the phone ring

Drums pounding inside of my head

Then wake up and realize there’s no time there

 

Time for turn away

Time for turn away

Time for turn away

 

Rolling along there’s no void here

Same as emptiness can be so clear

People are the same in an imaginary world 

There shouldn’t be reason for tears

 

Time for turn away

Time for turn away

 

Days in the summertime all the time

Same old way a tour through the years

And never think that there would be some boredom

Time is what you haven’t seen in years

Never think that there would be some boredom

Time is what you haven’t seen in years

Never think that there would be some boredom

Bourbon Legend   

You don’t know the rules that were assigned to us if you don’t turn around there’s nothing behind us

We came so far and nothing can stop this feeling ahead of the game you won’t miss

You will never feel the same disarray and I was lost along upon a field day

You would never do anything to hurt me and always like a friend never desert me

Up high like the air starts to feel thin you cried at the thought of being a has been

You don’t see much but lines on the page of your novel we laughed as we finished off the bottle

You were mistreated on their arrival they took all that you needed for survival

Come along with me take off your label you can do anything your able

 

I don’t feel the rain anymore like a deserted sky 

It will always rain after a hot spell in July

 

You will get the best of what you deserve down the road take back what you reserve

Sit a while and wait for the heat to cool down wait again until he takes off his crown

I never did them wrong and you know that I’ll tell you one thing I know where it’s at

You might break some out upon the table or pour another drink till you’re disabled

Up high like the air starts to feel thin you cried at the though of being a has been

You don’t see much but lines on the page of your novel we laughed as we finished off the bottle

You were mistreated on their arrival they took all that you needed for survival

Come along with me take off your label cause you can do anything your able

 

You don’t know the rules that were assigned to us if you don’t turn around the stars won’t align for us

We came this far again nothing can stop this feeling ahead of the game knowing you won’t miss

Sit a while and wait for the heat to cool down wait again until he takes off his crown

You don’t see much in the way of how you’re living

 

When you were there it was dark or it would blind us when you are here it is nothing but timeless

When you weren’t there it was dark and it was violet when you are here it is nothing but mindless

Cooking With Fire

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

 

When we come together when we’re all beside

Seems just like forever when you ain’t too wrong to ride

I ain’t getting older though you all went away

Now I’m sitting and I’m looking over the tree tops today

Ya you’re way out there, out there seen it all the way

So, so far out there out dear, out dear when are you coming my way

 

Gone forgotten ladies man missing from the crowd

Seems he’s gone forever but it’s not what it seems

The whole thing is what I told you, you’d always be today

Some time gone and some to come and the good times on their way

Ya you’re way out there, out there seen it all the way

So, so far out dear, out dear when are you coming my way, away

 

Away away away away away away

 

See you landed in the jungle baby you’re all sunny sky

See you landed in the jungle baby you're all sunny sky

See you landed in the jungle baby you’re all sunny sky

See you landed in the jungle baby you're all sunny sky

You’re all sunny sky, you’re all sunny sky

 

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

 

I’m gone in the jungle I’m gonna fly so high 

Did you see what just happened baby you’re all sunny sky

And I’m gonna ramble messing with the crowd 

You’re going out with me now honey and you’re singing you’re nice and loud

I’m not done though see you’re getting high

Be on my side heaven’s going when you get it go right on by

And I’m not Rambo messing with the cloud

You’re going out with me now honey and you’re singing you’re nice and loud

I’m not done though didn’t see you smile

If we don’t get together baby see you in a while

Finer

Low down and tired of this Monday town

Days go by and I don’t think I’m even around

Tuesday night’s not sad Sunday can be bad

This living takes me back to what I had

Money around here is the only way

Especially if you die and go away

We’ll be out of touch with the rest of around us

Far up, up and away to discuss

 

Got to go away away from this

Take the car and give the work a miss

Gonna take money and find all we need is time

Find a way back the way to finer

 

I don’t know how to say this in words

I used to feel and live just like the birds

And then they’ll fly away find another place

I’ll kick back and just enjoy the headspace

Sitting here in a room like a box

The rest of the day I watch the clocks

Seven more hours to go make a little dough

This week this time just didn’t go well

 

Got to go away away from this

Take the car and give the work a miss

Gonna take money and find all we need is time

Find a way back the way to finer

 

Think we’ll have to find a better way

Just more time to live with no dismay

Kick back and relax spend a little cash

And throw these weeks of work life in the trash

Why don’t we just get up and leave

Go some place that is hard to believe

We’ll just go somewhere and enjoy the land there

We’ll take out our trust and hell pays the rest of the fair

 

Got to go away away from this

Take the bar and give life a remiss

Gonna take money and find all we need is time

Find our way, our way to finer

 

Sick and tired of not feeling so great 

Spend too much money to keep me the same

All I need is love less work and the sky above us

Gonna find something right days of no fuss

There’s a place in this world for me and you

We’ll just find our own thing to do

Maybe grow some things give the dirt a rough up

Head back and stand for the things we did

Footprints on the Wall             

I see footprints on the wall

Other times waiting on a call

When did we not realize why we drink

Pouring down like lead the missing link

Shells on the beach key to the lock

Waste away the day just sit there and talk

Rainbows in your eyes alcohol tears

In heaven you won’t see a drink for years

Lying in the shadow from the sun

Running like a bartender runs

Just another day a magic spell undone

Then they won’t worry about it none

Gypsy Mind

Don’t push your luck trying hard to win run around in circles and you won’t give in

Even when you’re down still you never know you can predict what’s happening but you can’t let it go

And so a gypsy mind roaming lost and find the only thing keeping me going was making me blind

You showed me how this happened the love of me and you

And in my mind i’ll close my eyes and think of something new

 

We lived so many dreams alone me and you

Try not to think about it but I keep on breakin’ through

Something’s gonna give so don’t loose your cool

But if something doesn’t happen here we’re going back to school

 

When I close my eyes I see you plain as day

I’m sorry if I love you that much but it won’t go away

And when you’re far away feeling kinda blue

You’re the soul of life and what I never knew

 

We spent so many dreams alone me and you

You try not to think about it but it keeps on breakin' through

Something’s gonna give so don’t loose your cool

But if something doesn’t change here we’re going back to school

 

Don’t press your luck trying hard to win run around in circles and you won’t give in

Even when you’re down still you never know you can predict what’s happening but you can’t let it go

 

We spent so many nights alone me and you

Try not to think about it but ya keep on breakin’ through

Something’s gonna give so don’t loose your cool

But if something doesn’t change we’re going back to school

 

Keep on breakin’ through

So don’t loose your cool

Heart Of It

Daytime comes unthinkably and when we are around

In motion of the earth I felt a feeling I found some time ago

But long ago we didn’t know we would be one in the same

When we are there together can you feel the flame

The long days of love amiss a link without a chain

Every time I see your side I’m so caught up in the absence of pay

People come and people go you are not alive

Why am I so low down when the dream again dies

 

I stumble to my feet again take you to the top

Dive down and land then in a drop of water

And dark in the morning in this life of acquit

You take time and lead me to the heart of it

 

Early in the morning

At the break of night 

Stumble to my feet again

Take you to the top

 

Daytime comes unthinkably and when we are around 

In motion of the earth I felt a feeling I found some time ago 

But long ago we didn’t  know we would be one in the same

When we are there together can you feel the flame

 

I stumble to my feet again take you to the top

Dive down and land then in a drop of water

And dark in the morning in this life of acquit

Take time and lead me to the heart of it

Hit Hard

Won’t let go even at your speed

Nothing but the best for you and me

Something at times doesn’t receive

Or I thought about things wrong as I could be

I’ll never understand all of me 

If I don’t try to let you be

Tired and an overburdened life

Disturbed emotion would vanish in the night

 

If you weren’t on you way it really mattered

You took me off to places unimagined 

You can calm like a train, fly away from the pain

Are you still with me on this plane?

 

Then all of this time I’ve been wondering how things were

Try to remember but hit hard one December

 

Day after day in a low front

You always knew to treat things right

Same as the day of work and spite

You assumed the role of easing the night

One hell of a disguise and on the run

If things got any better I’d be stunned

Kick back and try and just relax

And hold onto the throttle upon the tracks

 

If you weren't on you way it really mattered

You took me off to places unimagined 

You can calm like a train fly away from the pain

Are you still with me on this plane

Hocktide

Winning is up in the long shot jester's been left aside in the rye

Standing knee-deep in among of these sheep nobility up there in the sky

Legends in heaven and it's twenty past eleven the hock still keeping us alive

Had the fever down in bender when the snow fell in November

And had a drink or two at a second story diner

 

You grew up on forced eating but it's a little bit different right now

Until you were so upset for the while on your little shelf there sat a sow

It's not so bad I guess a luxury only under certain circumstances

And then you steal a cow then you're taking chances

 

The courtyard employs a fool to criticize

With asses' ears a hoodie and some bells

A parti-colored coat he'll swim across the moat

They'll whip him and then say their farewells

 

Cities up ahead in the long run that is the best you could do

Like landing a plane in a storm of snow and rain or an old woman who lived inside a shoe

Feel it again and hold on wonder what's avoiding your brain

Is it the moon and stars up above or a trip around the planet on a train

 

Winning is up ahead in the long shot the jester's been left aside in the rye

Winning is up in the longshot nobility is up in the sky

Legends in heaven and it's quarter past eleven

The hock will be our drink of wine

 

 

Hold Down

Hold down you're in it finest place in the land

Confine the limit of no time to expand there

Take the obstruction bury it in wet sand

Qualify for nothin and take away the plan then

Star of suppression modify if you can

Tighten your belt on all the things people demand

Bound by weightlessness you know they will disband

Watch the way they’ll try to put your head inside a can

 

Scheduled predetermined lessened the weight

Blocked off anything that tried to bar this fate

Destroyed the very outer limits of the pain 

Controlled the simple essence of just what is on your plate

About the time you are put into a pinch

Best not undefined the boundaries of within

Blocked off mind zone far away from reach

Knowing their ideas will be trusted in an inch

 

Hold down you’re in it

Hold down you’re in it 

Haul down you’re in it

 

Hold down you’re in it finest place in the land

Confine the limit of no time to expand there

Take thee obstruction bury it wet sand

Qualify for nothing and take away the plan

Star of suppression modify if you can

Tighten your belt on all the things people demand

Bound by weightlessness you know they will disband

Watch the way they’ll try to put you head inside a can

Head inside a can

Home

Well I’m feeling really good about my serious invitation

Come tell me about the world and the ways you need a hand

I’ve been so long all caught up in all them trials and tribulations

All it took was convincing and a time to take a stand

 

I’m going back home I’m going back home

Well it’s been so long I’d fallen strong but I’m solid like a stone

I’m going back home I’m going back home

 

Well some friends of mine have been talking and I’m hearing very clearly

They are so glad we are around to share the way

We said take your old ways upwards look down and wander dearly

I am so happy I can appreciate the day

 

I’m going back home I’m going back home

Well it’s been so long I’d fallen gone but I’m solid as a stone

I’m going back home I’m going back home

 

I’m going back home I’m going back home

Well it’s been so long I’d fallen strong but I’m solid like a stone

I’m going back home I’m going back home

 

Well I’m feeling really good about my sticky situation

Come tell me about the world and the ways you need a hand

I’ve been so long all caught up in all of them trials and tribulations

All it took was enhancing and a time to take a stand

 

I’m going back home I’m going back home

I’m going back home I’m going back home

 

I’m going back home I’m going back home

I’m going back home I’m going back home

How Cheap It Is (To Be Loved by You)       

I see nothing but darkness moving through the light

Dusty beams of moonshine through the window, bright

Lost are we when you don’t see that we are rerun

And you don’t leave me without thinking that I have weighed a tonne

 

Sunshine on the window helps you through the day

And I never even realized that you had gone away

Once a while you treated me exactly like you should

But I spent most of my time feelin' that I’m misunderstood

 

Dawn has been the beginning of a dream dusk is now a cold winter extreme

A cold rainy frost icy waves around us (stuff that dreams are made of)

Awake now your living in a scheme

 

Clouds of hazy lightning bad music in your head

A shadow of your morning but drinking instead

Of working with you I see problems at the door

Take away what you took away you took away before

 

Oohhhhh

 

Sunshine on the window helps you through the day

But I never even regretted that you had gone away

Once in a while you treated me exactly like you should

But I spent most of my time feelin that I’m misunderstood

 

Ahhhhh

Ahhhhh

Ahhhhh

 

Dawn has been the beginning of a dream dusk is a cold dark extreme

A cold rainy frost icy waves around us (stuff that dreams are made of)

Awake now I’m living in a scheme

Icezella

Went down towards the sunrise that is floating by 

Say brother can you tell me why I love to fly

The time before I wandered and I was wondering why 

We’re gonna get together when the day is nigh

The door is open come and go as you may 

Come tell me tales and of fortune till the end of your stay

Don’t be bothered when the wisdom of tomorrow isn’t actually today

Tomorrow the day will be older and you’re still at bay

And in the previous moments of your life as you are you’ll see it rising to the top on the bar

Everything sinks beneath your knees, your knees Icezella’s in the trees

We rose away and fell to the end of the vanishing sky 

The last time I visited I went real high

The longer it takes in order to see where you rise 

The shorter the expression I saw from the morning in your eyes

And in the previous moments of your life as you are you’ll see it rising to the top on the bar

Everything sinks beneath your knees, your knees Icezella’s in the trees

And in the previous moments of your life as you are you’ll see it rising to the top on the bar

Everything sinks beneath your knees, your knees Icezella’s in the trees

Love Adorn

When I came to see you smile once more came through the door

You weren’t there but you showed me just to wait to see once more

I waited, waited where are you oh love came through the door

I knew from a sign when you showed up to be mine

After so long my darling I walked to stage before I perform

I’ve never seen a beautiful face like yours my love adorn

 

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

 

When I came to see you smile once more walked through the door

You weren’t there but you told me just to wait to see once more

I waited unknowingly where are you love came through the door

I knew from a sign later you showed up to be mine

I knew that you had showed up to be mine

I knew that you had showed up to be mine

 

When you were talking to me you told me all that I see

All I know that we should be together like never

Gave it all your heart with reason to exceed 

You gave it all your heart my love and you make my life complete

 

When I came to see you smile once more came through the door

You weren’t there but you told me just to wait to see once more

You weren’t there but you told me just to wait to see once more

You weren’t there but you told me just to wait to see once more

 

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

In the rain or the snow in the heat or the wind and the cold

 

After so long you walked away and I still feel you’re there

You’re face when we talked at the bar I’ve never seen compare

When I came to see you smile once more came through the door

You weren’t there but you told me just to wait to see once more

I’ve never seen such a beautiful face for you my love adorn

Love In the Lowlands

Over in the lowlands with you all alone

Or wandering in the valley where home is a home

Wake up and realize you’re already there

With you and your love in the lowlands

End up on the street and busy life out the door

Something completely different just came into store

In with the old but know me from the start

You’re still there again busy or not

 

So tell me, tell me like a dream

Keep me up all night with you so real

Dreaming is perfect knowing that you’re spent

Some time down the road so debonnaire

Stand there in the evergreens

Spell on me send you to the sky

Give me a hint of your thoughts

Get up and realize we’re astronauts

 

See you, see you over there

You still make me laugh like high up in the air

Look down on me stand on the ground

As though you know that you’ll be there

 

Tell me, tell me like a dream

Keep me up all night the pages in between

Dreaming is so perfect knowing that you’re spent

Away up in the air turbulent

Stand there in the evergreens

Spell on me reaper’s over there

Give me a hint of your thoughts

Get up and realize we’re astronauts

 

So tell me, tell me like a dream

Keep me up all night with you so real

Dreaming is perfect knowing that you’re spent

Waiting for that moment to be bent

Spell me the reaper’s over there

So give me a hint of your thoughts over there

Get up realize what we’re not 

And know we are just astronaunts

Make It Go Away

Hate is on the inside see it on the news

Now freak home and leave behind life in Syracuse

Further east and upward just living for the day

When you live so close to your friends in Clifton Park

Narrow but vast trucking built to last

Bring your children home wherever it is home now

Can’t avoid the scene make it bitter green

And never want to leave to face what normal

 

The scene so grey make it go away

Away to a place where no one’s heard of

Did it on the way you know and remember 

That it was all the same till you arrived

The tunnel’s end and the next turn 

A simple plan and nothing will stop you

Take along your men you take Uncle Sam

Lights and cities aren’t the same you still rise

 

You just saved the day people on the south side

Continental day you’re so nice and friendly

Thinking along the way don’t want it to be over

See you again misty maid

And a sight so real take out all your sound now

Tornado warning lightning speed

Trade then one thing give us what we need

Tomorrow’s too late when things aren’t well

 

And a scene so grey make it go away

Away to a place where no one’s heard of 

Did it on the way you know and remember 

That things were all the same till you arrived

Made it to the end and the next turn

Simple as a plan nothing will stop you

Take along your men nothing ever changed

Lights and cities aren’t the same you still rise

Miss Rule

Sink honey sink down into the music 

We left our loving on the line

Think now rethink we had more than loving

That woman I think about how she was kind

You led me down the time I didn’t know it

I really didn’t know you even cared

Sirens in my head thinking I was dead

I do know you left me feeling impaired 

 

Time all a woe I though I thought I let you go

I bet you still don’t know just what happened

Now that you see the better part of history

Tomorrow won’t bring you back to me

 

Drink honey drink live into the moment

And you forget what it was that wrecked things

I try to understand but life is in your hands

I thought of what happened with your rings

Then the other day thinking with compassion

Wondering how life can be so cool

Life it goes on we weren’t right or wrong

But I still wonder what happened with Miss Rule

 

Time all a woe I though I thought I let you go

I bet you still don’t know just what happened to you

Now that you see the better part of history

 

Tomorrow won’t bring you back to me

Tomorrow won’t bring you back to me

Tomorrow won’t bring you back to me

Nellie

Nellie took her tugboat down to Precondition Bay 

The locks were full the channels were crowded and all was total disarray 

The first victim she came across was sinking fast no time to bail 

When she tried to help him out he pulled away and raised his sail

 

A gust of wind it came along and carried him away

But the wind soon died and so did he that mind grave set is where he’ll stay

Don’t ask me to drown with you among this sinking social boat

It’s up to you to sink or swim but on my own I know I’ll float

 

Don’t tell me what it is I see don’t tell me what I know 

I am the only me the only one in control 

Don’t say that I must follow you along your beaten path

You seem so shocked when I reveal that I don’t believe in that

 

The second was a drowning fool with no chance of success 

But Nellie came to help him out, out of his self-defeated mess

All his friends jumped off the bridge and so of course he did too

And as he gasped for his last breath he muttered “I’m not friends with you”

 

Don’t tell me what it is I see don’t tell me what I know 

I am the only me the only one in control 

Don’t say that I must follow you along your beaten path

You seem so shocked when I reveal that I don’t believe in that

 

Don’t believe in that, don’t believe in that

Don’t believe in that, don’t believe in that

Don’t believe in that

 

Last was the first mate gone in solitaire 

He left us in a hurry but she really didn’t care

Washed up still as a wreck on shore he’ll lay in his remorse

Gone now to this day he will chart an even course

Never Goin’ to Heaven Ever Again          

Drifting past see you’re here so fast dazed wonder won’t you stay

Bored in ways we see what life says won’t you come over what their way

Watch you fall into the water floating in among the sea life

All I can ask of you is won’t you join me tonight

 

Walk towards the road of tree life see them stand so tall and straight

See all the ones that stay there they’ll hang around till it gets late

Come and dive into the water float here in among the sea life

Twenty-two and so much left to do tonight

 

The path leads up towards the mountain you’ll find it comfortable up there

Sit on a rock and think what you thought about the things that aren't so fair

Sinking deep below the water it’s so nice of you to stay 

We will be together so long finding the way, the way

No Future Has in Store          

Ordinary but strange

Can’t help to feel that this just is out of range 

But the lack of better things to say things to say

My mind wants to hide and I know things have changed

So brilliant, resilient all the way

You are who you are I can’t imagine life so hard 

But you, you’re life all the way

And everything in general is not o.k.

 

Come and see what no future has in store

Take my brain I don’t need it anymore

So just remain on your life’s venture change

Together and more deranged

Saving you and your witchiness ‘till last

I can’t imagine a future with no past

So damage my soul if you did

Cause other than good times we’re no good

 

So let’s plan you’re so dangerously banned

I’m not simple and just can’t withstand

But scrambled, scrambled half together

So in transit need more leisure 

 

Come and see what no future has in store 

Don’t need it anymore

No future has in store

Don’t need it anymore

Don’t need it anymore

Nothing Left of You                  

You just caught a red-eye off the land and you were thinking of your life in the sand

I thought of what I said and I didn’t mean it too but the universe and life says it may come back on you

I’ve never seen you in all of the land but I know when I see you you’ll be there again

And you knew me before there ever was a score it’s hard to think that there will always ever be some more

 

You could knock me around and you wouldn’t even ever make a sound

But when you come this way there’s on thing I can say I need you, you won’t let me down

 

You’ve been across that bridge on your pursuit I’ll bet you thought that dream would never pull through

And if you go away, nothing left of you, you are one of them they are one of you

 

You could knock me around and you wouldn’t even make a sound

But when you come this way there’s on thing I can say I need you, you won’t let me down

 

One thing you could have it all one day you’ll still be there

Every time I’m with you, you really seem to glow on top of old smokey all covered with snow

 

You could knock me around and you wouldn’t even make a sound

When you come again what else could I say I need you, you don’t let me down

 

You could just knock me around and you wouldn’t even make a sound

But when you come this way there’s one thing I can say I need you, you won't let me down

 

You just caught a red-eye off the land and you were thinking of your life in the sand

I thought of what you said and I didn’t bother me but the universe and life says it make on back to me

Make on back to me 

Make on back to me

On the Outside

You gone and shook my soul down take it all away

Rich won’t make it better with nothing but a down time

Don’t make it go away i’ll see right through

Take it all too far see you down the road

 

My heart is on the outside nothing to survival

And then on the inside I feel I wanna die some

Take away my day something took it away

And now I’m on the outside

 

Feels like it is over I don’t feel better for it 

Strange like a night storm comes out of nowhere

Trying for the rest to see that it’s all best

Take it all away you know that you are wrong

 

Strong on the inside fire for the light

State of union tonight is night

And the least of all the trouble in the world

Get on the outside

 

You better learn now you are on the runway

Things you won’t learn in school trying for some time

Everything seems normal you took it all away

And you will do some dancing

Outdone

I long to see your pretty smile just a while on up the road left to go

Reach the end and we’re together again, begin

Similar connection between cussed and affection 

Lasted on tea the stillness so good and we’re free

 

Done in the sun all an illusion that infusion we’re all outdone

 

You are one and I am too no matter the price we’ll get through

Now we’re equally you

Listen to the others and we will be colours if we’re spun

No time no nothing cause you’re number one

 

Done in the sun all an illusion that infusion we’re all outdone

 

Sure can’t beat that feeling I have now

I feel as though my life is new somehow

Things have changed and you’ll see that’s it’s true

You’ll never know just how much I love you

 

You are one and i’ll make do no matter the price i’ll get two

Now we’re equally through

Listen to the others and we will be colours if we’re one

No time no nothing but cool midnight sun

 

Done in the sun all an illusion that infusion we’re all outdone

Done in the sun all an illusion that infusion we’re all outdone

 

I long to see your pretty smile just a while on up the road yet to go

Reach the end and we’re together again

Right For You

A thought of your eyes closing when I could see the rain 

The sky falling down no need to explain

Wake up knowing together that we were set apart 

In part of this possession I knew right from the start

 

Cloudy sight of morning I could not connect

Woke up one more time the whole day was wrecked

I would care to listen and I’d still hear you through

I just stand here unfocused not knowing what to do

 

Feeling allured on a fine day happy that it is Monday morn

Fly into the night the devil's on the ground

Kinda like when you’re low down and great things come around

 

Sad and so alone I think what love can do

Maybe we’ll connect but chances are few

Through the evening brightness after winter’s gone

Imagining another chance a way to send love

 

I remember the sight of you it went right to my head

Intoxicated from the simple things you said 

Things we did and memories until that day we part 

Desire's bow and arrow it flew right by the heart 

 

Feeling allured on a fine day happy it is Monday morn

Fly into the night the devil's on the ground

Kinda like when you’re lowdown and great things come around

 

Through the dismal light not so much unreal

Tiny little things make you how you feel

And when it’s the right time simple but true

You just do what’s right for you don’t be misconstrued

San Fransister                           

Someone untied the not in my heart now it’s open again it’s you

Yesterday was it my friend but i’ll see you alone on the freeway

See we’re ravin a natural way back home alone with you woman

That I belong to and also see you’re untruly true

Woman you stayed with me all of the nights while I was alone in your bootie

Down the lane with three bags full yes sir she’s come to suit me

But when I reach my woman down the road you know she’s my country girl

More than just a spiritual maiden you know she’s out of this world

Someone unlocked the door to your heart how the hell you gonna explain it then baby

Never again will life pass me by and we done give up on forgiving

Settled in a familiar way feeling younger day to day

Just as long as we’re here with each other the road is long but we’re driven

 

Waiting for summer your day’s done the road is long and your weary

Your energy flows so easily though tonight you made us all cheery 

Living in the comfort of the beauty and joy we’ve been given 

Alone you were there through all of my life through the loneliness I’d been living

Woman you stayed with me all of the nights when I was alone in your duty

Down the lane with three banks full yes sir she’s come to suit me

But when I reach my woman down the road you know she’s my funky girl

More than just a spiritual maiden you know she’s out of this world

Someone unlocked the door to your heart how the hell you gonna explain it then baby

Never again will life pass me by and we done give up on forgiving

Settled in a familiar way feeling younger day to day

And just as long as we’re here with each other the road is long but we’re driven

 

The road is long but we’re driven 

Just as long as we’re here with each other 

Shine All Over Me

The saying so it goes be good or be on your toes you learned another lesson from today

It surely goes to show we don’t waste our time no more we want back that spirit of yesterday

You don’t break the rules it’s them who haunt you they are the outlaws not you and me

They stole more than you wanted the forest and the sea

 

Then it came down to be a picture of reality that’s not something you knew some time ago

Now it’s there for free and I knew without even asking the answer came to you in a glass of merlot

You are full of everything imagined you always know where you’re supposed to be

You are like the sunshine you shine all over me

 

Last it came down like rain cold pain or the underground to really see the sky for all we know

Days are like a flower and in the deepest darkest hour they may bloom again or they won’t

Why don’t you make it last forever my mind is inside a bottle on the sea

It’s you who I reach out for cause you reached out for me

 

Sometimes the light is shining sometimes the light is on

Moving forward in a circular motion in a way around the dawn

All of a sudden I sink deeper, deeper inside the night

 

You don’t break the rules it’s them who haunt you and how in hell will you ever be free

And you are like the sunshine you shine all over me

 

Shine like there’s tomorrow shine like there’s no today

Shine and you will make it go away

 

The saying so it goes be good or be on your toes you learned another lesson from today

It surely goes to show we don’t waste our time no more we want back that spirit of yesterday

You don’t break the rules it’s them who haunt you they are the outlaws not you and me

They took more than you wanted the forest and the seed

 

Shine like there’s tomorrow shine like there’s no today

Shine and you will make it go away

 

Ahhhhhhhh

Tell Me You Don’t Need Me

Said nothing for a good time nothing would go right

Staring at the TV feeling out of sight

You got more than your liquor store then you bought the farm

Sayin it ain’t alright, and then you let it go

 

Tidal wave’s alright ride it ‘till the light

Taking a slow turn morning times more

Something just ain’t right and see the end of trouble

Time will come and you’ll see, see (on) right through the dawn

 

Tell me you don’t need me you made things a bore

Telling me what you think and you did it again some more

 

You don’t care to deal ‘em, operation’s at your door

Flying like an acrobat standing on the floor

You just need it but they won’t feed it taking all the yield

Thinking life in prison walking through a field

 

Farmer down the road got it on the rocks 

Anything all day and night slippery like a fox

Too tied up to saddle down got off with the need

Get on down and bust this town burn up the wheels

 

Tell me you don’t need me you made things a bore

Telling me what you think and you did it again some more

 

Tell me you don’t need me you made things a bore

Telling me what you think and you did it again some more

The Right Street                       

Moving like fire I never seem to sleep

The night comes down in rain like a river down a street

These days are happier but not what I had deemed

More days coming this way got me feeling like a gleam

Don’t need to think about what went wrong before

Times I see through the thought of feeling kinda soaked

Who cares what happened give my heart a tear

I don’t take nothing but a good feeling from there

 

Those days have come and gone and you know I see the past 

These ways are better and you know we never last

Someday i’ll know if we always see the night

But the right street takes you to the street on the right

 

On top a castle dancing in the rain 

Weapons drawn and struck from the heat and lighting veins

Everything went south on you, you never did complain

Feeling like chamber where the people were chained

 

Those days have come and gone you know we see the past 

These ways are better and you know we never last

Someday i’ll know if we always see the night

But the right street takes you to the street on the right

 

Those days have come and gone you know i’ve see the past 

These ways are better and you know we never last

Someday i’ll know if we always see the night

But the right street takes you to the street on the right

 

No more tomorrows when we’re in the field

Up to you was I, what you said to me was real

The day is over and so you’ve come to stay

Beyond recognition of you yesterday 

 

Those days have come and gone you know i’ve see the past 

These ways are better and you know we never last

Someday i’ll know if we always see the night

But the right street takes you to the street on the right

Through A Raid                         

The reason for it all we’re more far along 

Are you still flying through a raid

The reason for it all we’re more far along 

Are you still flying through a raid

 

All of trouble came the floor gave way

The river so high the mountain stone dry

Clear skies smoke clouds sullen and grey

Fire still burning up the night

Tearing a hole down in the soul

Remembering peace fields of poppies and green

A scream in the air someone's lost control

A normal life is somewhere in between

 

The reason for it all we’re more far along

Are you still flying through a raid

The reason for it all we’re more far along

Are you still flying through a raid

 

Talk about fright and flight those times

You forgot the past where troubles dwell

Like a colourful dream and her hazy sight of white

A proud day on a ship deck waving farewell

Someday in the night feeling alright

As the mood soars high church bells chime

Not hell freezing over, just seeing through the light

Living in the moment just time

 

The reason for it all we’re more far along

Are you still flying through a raid

The reason for it all we’re more far along

Are you still flying through a raid

 

The reason for it all we’re more far along

Are you still flying

Time of Your Life

The world is turning and something is burning in that old iron pot on the stove 

The light is on and there’s somebody home with a peace of mind of their own

A change of pace will change the race competition’s thrown away

Other’s confide but are hung up and dried with the other dirty shirts on the line

The well out the back is safe from the crack in the ground that made it run dry

 

Time is on it’s own time the time comes towards you then goes away

Wishing is somewhat like listening for the door that'll open and you’ll come and say

Down the road you can see me coming and I come from miles away

Look into my eyes and we’ll be together we’ll travel our time away

Truck on down towards the time of your life and your troubles they’ve all gone away

 

You’ve been taken advantage of too many times now give it all back and walk towards the door

Traded your watch away don’t know the day or the time that were washed away

Floating along in the current of the river and your troubles they’ve all gone away

Traded your watch away don’t know the day or the time that you were washed away

Floating along in the current of the river and your troubles they’ve all gone away

Traded your watch away don’t know the day or the time that were washed away

 

The fortune is turning and the spell is burning in that old iron pot on the stove

The lights are off and we are alone with a peace of mind of our own

A change of pace your head in a case the others are on their way 

Some half-died but at least your alive with a recent mind out of time

The lake out back is clear off track near the town where we lived all our lives

Floating along in the current of the river and your troubles they’ve all gone away

Traded your watch away don’t know the day or the time that were washed away

Virginia Reel

You wanna make it happen make the dream real

You know things can sharpen as music may feel

No not just anyone, you know how to heal

We will dance together a Virginia reel

Time got past the people they won’t believe it’s true

Ain’t no option sometimes thinking nothing’s wrong with you

Some will agree in life on someone’s demand

And won’t even know it’s normal till their life is at hand

 

Step out of fashion nothing is surreal

Till we dance together a Virginia reel

Take life’s passion take a dream feel 

Like never out of ration a Virginia reel

 

Walked out this morning realized what I’ve done

Tried to enlighten but was always on the run

Singing that same song, one thing will stand strong 

All we have is each other when all the stuff is gone

 

Step out of fashion nothing surreal

Till we get together a Virginia reel

Take life’s passion take a dream feel 

Like never out of ration a Virginia reel

 

You know how I feel and know things are backwards

Trying to conceal what never even happened

And forever real sometimes just old passion

But nothing will heal like a Virginia reel

Virginia reel

 

Step out of fashion nothing surreal

Till we dance together a Virginia reel

Take life’s passion take the dream feel 

Like never out of ration a Virginia reel

 

You wanna make it happen make the dream real

We’re On Our Own

Before the sea before the ocean just you and me beyond our time

I’ve been real keen about this notion that we’re all here in perfect time

Some said the old days aren’t so far away some said there’s nothing for a dime

I’ve seen the rain baby you’re so far away it all came down from time to time

Those days are over now they’re gone away same as the day that we got caught

Seems what we’ve done now is no use today seems ‘bout the wonders we all brought

 

Done spent some time now on your own and I see it’s up to you now, god it’s shown

You’ll never be like an outlaw to me but I buy and I fly and I try and I’m high

See there’s time now here’s how it goes I’m gonna let it go, I’m gonna let it go

There’s a song man we’re on our own gonna let it go, gonna let it go

 

Before the breeze upon your ocean those different seas they surround

Off ground and sailed upon the motion the sun is always beaming down

Those days are over now they’re gone away same like the day that we got caught

Seems like we’ve done now is no use today seems ‘bout the wonders we all brought

 

Done spent some time man on your own and I see it’s up to you now, god it’s shown

You’ll never be like an outlaw to me but I buy and I fly and I try and I’m high

There’s a song man see how it goes I’m gonna let it go, I’m gonna let it go

And there’s a time now we’re on our own I’m gonna let go, let it go

And there’s a song man we’re on our own gonna let it gonna, gonna let it go

 

There’s a time man see how it goes I’m gonna let it go, we’re gonna let it go

And there’s a time now we’re on our own we’re gonna let it go, we’re gonna let it go

There’s a song man see how it goes we’re gonna let it go, we’re gonna let it go

There’s a time now we’re on our own, gonna let it go

When You Get It Together (It Isn’t How It Was)      

What you did and what you will I am in hot water rising up still

Then you came there was no shore around us when the sun is shining on you

 

When you’re here you are always the answer my day is through on a wave you’re a dancer

And if you’re lost well you can always find a way now let it go critical today

 

So you’re down well I am sure feeling up now I knew it would, I knew it would work out

Time away isn’t always the best answer when you get it together it isn’t how it was

 

When you get it together, it isn’t how it was

 

That is life tomorrow is no different and at night you sure did sin for it

Let’s get lost all the more we’ll find our way get 'em on get 'em your way

 

Time was tough but it wasn’t the toughest time get him on your side get him on the inside

People trust people should just learn to get along outside of the boundaries when everything is wrong

 

What you did what you will I’m deep in hot water rising up still

Then you came and there was no shore around us when the sun is covering you

What you did what you will I am in hot water rising up still

Then you came and there was no shore around us when the light is covering you

 

When you get it together it isn’t how it was
