About Me

New band name, same old members! Sorry, not a really band member and there is no Cole Gait...that's just humor, folks! Or not, I guess,,, anyway, I work my 40 per week, sell collectables and stuff on ebay, write children's stories and have dabbled at song writing. With my short attention span, writing lyrics line-by-line seems like a perfect fit. Looking forward to future projects! Need to ask me something or share some thoughts? I'm at mypacrat@yahoo.com.

"Notice this phrasing off what you wrote Joe....

I draw that bow
Try to make the center
Let it go
I feeling it fly
Still I know even if I'm certain I'm....
Never gonna change your mind




"Aim it for the center" would also be good...but we used "aim" I think in the first verse...I hate to double up on words! Plus "take it to the center" sings better...."

Beth Nielsen Chapman commented on mypacrat's lyric:

"interesting rhymes...second line doesn't fit the melody rhythm...really like "holding up your crown"...play around with maybe "keeping your crown"

What if the first like was:

"Well you can keep your crown
Stay in your position
Anchor down
and _ _ _ _ ("I" rhyme here!)

And then the second half off this we would want to justify coming up on the hook...

and start with how to play into the Rhyme...here are some endings to the line before the hook that can internal rhyme with "position":

....this is why....(I'm never gonna...)
...even if the _ _ shines...
...maybe you will listen fine...but I'm never gonna change your mind....

"

Lyric by mypacrat:

"Well, you have your ways/ Like some kind of assassin/ Sticks and stones/ Holding up your crown/ If you’d just left go/ You might like what happens/ If I’m…ever gonna change you mind"

"I really like the idea of trying to get the "I'm" as the rhyme...this line doesn't seem to fit the accents...but this is worth trying to figure out!"

(more)
Lyric by mypacrat:

"Well, when I think of us/ And all the time I wasted/ Knocking your head/ Deep into the night/ Guess there’s no chance/ Come hell or high water that I’m…/ Ever gonna change your mind"

"I might lean toward "that's a mountain that I'm not about to climb" cause it sings better on the melody and is more open...but good one!"

"I’m never gonna change your mind/ That’s a mountain that this woman will not climb"

and that bench seat in that old Ford, is never gonna feel ignored...
like a tango, we're gliding/ I love this wave that we're riding
and what was missing is clear/ and that was having you here
some mist from the moonlight, a kiss from the sun/ almost like magic, two hearts became one
questions and answers, our hopes and our dreams/ heaven and your eyes, and everything in between
whisky and weekends, a wing and a prayer/ it all goes together like the love that we share
there's no low tide, without a tide that is high/ there's no more me, there's only you and I
there's no low tide, without a tide that is high/ there no more me, there's only you and I
Like bread and butter, coffee and cream/ Like fire to water, like water to steam
Like true goes with love and heart with soul/ Forever with you, is what makes me whole
And what once I might have been afraid of/ Is now everything that I’m made of
Why have words when you can have a song/ Why curse the dark when you can have the dawn
This isn’t chance, this is a blessing/ No better gift is worth possessing
Heart and soul are blazing on fire/ And focused on this one desire
There’s no end to this river that’s flowing/ Set free and its power keeps growing
You lift my heart and you guide me/ You’ve filled all the empty inside me
It all adds up and like the life in air/ I couldn’t breathe knowing you’re not there
My soul is singing and my heart is alive/ Feeling feelings I can hardly describe
Good whisky, summer nights, making love by candlelight
A slow dance to our song, a kiss that lingers on.
Secret stories we share/ With a true pinkie swear
A bridge and a chorus, the future before us
It’s in the joy that binds two hearts, Whenever true love starts
Picnics in the park, Fireworks in the dark
And the past was nothing but a pack of lies
Clear as a bell, bright as a sunrise
Waited long enough and things went right
Bigger and brighter than a million lights
Tomorrow better make room for you and I
Written with love right across the skies
Life adds up so splendidly sometimes
Heaven’s up there waiting in your eyes
It was the confidence of knowing/ How a love could just keep growing
It was love without the raining/ It was life without complaining
Then I heard heaven knocking, as my heart was unlocking
What it is gets so much clearer, every time that you get nearer
A door flew open and skies started clearing / Something told me to embrace what I was fearing
Finally put my finger right on it/ Something’s pulling us together and I want it
My world has changed, went from shadow to the sun/ My life and my soul were never meant for just one
You were the key to the future/ And now I’m never looking back
You can’t start flying with your feet stuck to the ground/ And you can’t build love if there’s no one else around
We’re building up a fire here that’s out of our control
But now my head's back in the game/ Alone will never be the same
Something empty, something hollow/ Something more than I can swallow
Well, I’m slow and stubborn learner/ I’m not a builder, I'm a burner
Now my senses are flowing like a summer sun glowing
Gray clouds might filter some joy away/ Give a little time, the sun will find a way
You can’t move forward if you’re stuck in the past/ And no amount of love will ever be your last
I had whisky with my Coke, she had tequila with her lime/ sparks danced in the moonlight when she touched her glass to mine
If I jump on your teeder-todder, that will never do/ you got to climb aboard so you can teeder-todder too
There's a back seat in that old Chevy, red and white and baby blue/ just sitting in the moonlight there, with nothing much to do
There is a back porch swing, the paint is faded and old/ it knows a hundred stories, a million moments of gold
You can't give a handshake and you can't give a hug/ you can't even argue if there's no one to bug
Noah built an ark for every couple in the world, with some guidance from the heavens above
We don't need a hammer and we don't need nails, we're building something even money can't buy/
Well, it's a great big, one use, throw-away world/ and I'm ready to revisit my past
One bunch of newborn roses, two cups of wine/ a mystic splash of moonlight/ and I think you're mine
Just for fun... Julie and Jackie, Cindy and Sue/ How can I love one lady when I'm made for two.
I'm getting ready for a ride, on a trip that's beyond compare/ There's an empty seat next to me, with just enough room to share
I live a life so lucky that I’ve got to shake my head and laugh/ I look at you and I wonder how you got to be my better half
We skipped some stones, and we made ripples, right? Dancing though waves in the heat of the night
There’s an empty blender, and it’s waiting for ice/ Don’t like to drink alone, so I'm filling it twice
There’s a big old blanket, laying on the floor/ From a king-sized bed, that ain’t used no more
I’m not made of money, not made of stone/ Not meant for living my life all alone
Some things were meant for millions, for the world to share/ like peace on earth or the breathing of air
Well there's food and there's water/ there was one for me and I got her
I load kisses on the tops of your fingertips/ Time stands still, it always will, whenever we touch lips
I thought my glass was half empty, it was really half full
“Tea for one” is a sad thing to say/ A “table for one” sounds just the same way
We were a pair of hearts searching in the night/ Sometimes numbers and life just add up right
This ain’t just another summer sunrise My soul’s singing and it’s no surprise
And prayers are sometimes answered, not with words, but through the spark/ of humanity that’s measured/ through the kindness from our heart
From the silence, find the message/ Can you feel it? It’s a sign/ Waiting calmly in our corners/ It was right there all the time/
Slip out of the shadows, dance like our feet just hit the floor/ Dance for life and dance for kindness, like we’ve never danced before/
If the doors can all fall open, can we take that timid step/ To a place we used to know, but haven’t figured out quite yet
If we can all just stand together, face what we’re denying/ We can change things for the better even if we might die trying
Filler lines for the first verse: …and the distance starts to grow (per MJ)/ but there’s no place left to go/ …and you just don’t understand (per Maria Jack)/ but you go on as best you can
Every evening see a low tide/ It only lasts until the sunrise
We want to lie to ourselves/ Because the truth is just so wrong/ But we make it through our days/ Sharing hope and faith and song
When the music turns to screaming/ Watch as the pipers run to hide/ They are no better than sewers/ Where their lost souls tend to hide
You can’t always see the symptoms/ I don’t know the pain you’re in/ But I know disease is not determined/ By the pigment of your skin
When dreams depend on fortunes/ And gold stays gathered to the kings/ Then the future doesn’t a matter/ Or any hope the future brings
And when the embers spark and fade/ And the ashes lose their heat/ When we don’t learn from our mistakes/ We just ignore them and repeat
I think we're all riding in a taxi/ on a road that doesn't care/ all that matters is the vision/ and we agree to split the fare
I think when things get tough, that love should flow like a fountain/If we pull each other up, we can climb any mountain
I know I'm feeling pretty tired of this, I'm sure you're feeling just the same/ we're all looking with a finger pointing/ but we don't know just who to blame
I was walking through the city/ where the buildings are tall/ when somebody started singing/ for no reason at all
Well, we're supposed to keep our distance/ So we can all stay alive/ But living isn't living if we only survive
Which is worse look at, either choice is just too hard/ The headlines in the papers or new stones in old graveyards
Had two friends pass, but I still don't know/ if this is real or just a TV show
We’re all aboard and we’re all riding/ On winds of a storm that fills the sky/ But tomorrows light the edge of each horizon/ They are the wings of hope that help us fly
I keep listening, I keep feeling/ the sadness and the pains/ the lonely, empty spirit/ left running through our veins
It was supposed to be summer, but winters keeps holding on/ I'm gonna just keep smiling and pretend that nothing's wrong
Look at the world that we live in/ It spins in glory every day/ I felt the wind as it was shifting/ I saw those blue skies turning gray
The sunrise seemed pretty normal/ The sunset seemed a little too red/ I laid out my prayers and said them/ A hundred times before I went to bed
There’s a whisper growing louder/ And it crawls right up to your ear/ It tells you things you never dreamed of/ It plays upon your deepest fear/
I hold my scream up on this rooftop/ I’m trying hard to not breathe in/ Oh, can’t you feel this fear amongst us/ As it grips hard upon your skin
I feel the rumble of a heartache/ I feel the terror creeping in/ If there’s a way to skip tomorrow/ I’ll place my bet and be all in/
I woke up to darkness/ Kinda evil feeling on my skin/ Don’t know about the future/ And lost about where I’ve been/
Big time fears that it's all imploding/Step up and be a part of hearts exploding...
Step out of shadow, leave the chaos behind/Look for the truth and together we will find/
It’s not always better to give than to receive/And in this case the only thing that I believe...
Walking from the fire, leaving chaos for desire/ Leaving fear and pain and holding only this one thought inside my head...only love is gonna save us...
And we'll listen to the sound/ of chaos going down/
All this chaos is gonna make us stronger/ if we can keep loving just a little longer
If doubt destroys our hope/ Let faith bring a fire to enrage us
I wasn't before but now I'm a believer/ Your love is contagious and I'm the receiver
Whatever it is that you have I caught it/ You're contagious to me and I'm glad I got it
Your distance keeps you like a Rembrandt or Picasso/ I can look but never touch or so it seems/ I need my love to be contagious/ So I can touch you more than in my dreams ...hmmm... I like this but it feels kinda creepy!
Picking petals off flowers, staring at the ceiling/ Helplessness is truly contagious/ No more spinning our wheels, we've got to find the feeling/ It's time to let love re-engage us
Are we living in darkness, or just closing our eyes/ I only know one thing for sure/ Simple and easy, when we realize/ That hate is contagious and love is the cure
Think it’s time for moving on/ I haven’t seen you in a while/ There’s nothing better than your love/ Or as contagious as your smile
I touch you and you touch me/ Our love grows stronger each and everyday/ It’s out of control and it’s easy to see/ Our love’s contagious, but that’s OK/
Two or a million or more Looking out our front door Laughing contagious away All holding hands while we say You're not wanted no more
Let me protect you tonight/ From all that threatens your heart/ What passes through us is right/ Contagious right from the start
It hides in shadow like dusk It whispers all through the night Love, it paints like a brush And as contagious as light
Distance is weaker than hope/ Hope is stronger than time/ My heart's connected to you/ Contagious all of the time
It’s time to heal, that’s for sure/ get back to words we can trust/ I know if love is the cure/ we’re not contagious enough
It’s time to heal, that’s for sure/ I think we’ve suffered enough/ I know if love is the cure/ we’re not contagious enough
The measures of indifference
All the yesterdays that bind us
A new shade of brightness
Just a little detour, not the end of the road
An oath to tomorrow (in a song for today)
Time we all get a view from the top
We have our ins and our outs, we have our serious doubts
Done wasting time on this merry-go-round
Everything we lost is found, waiting there on common ground
Trying to come together on this shaky, broken land
Don’t look up to find a hero
In the same boat, sails hard into the wind
Popcorn and a movie that is sunrise
Hey, aren’t we all essential
Give a minute, take a second
Time to break the soil and drop some seed
No matter how bleak or dark shade of gray/ With hope and with will, love finds a way
Holding my breath, watching clouds step aside/ Shadows running with no place to hide
And if the heart is honest to the night/ we'll beg for another chance for flight
A flash of time we long to forget/ or the ante of another losing bet
The sun remembers the joy it brings/ while cold wind crawls through empty swings
We've been both audience and players/ watchers and fearless dragon slayers
And what we learn from broken dreams/ Is you can always dream again
From a box of broken coal we’re findin’/ We get to turn it all to diamonds
A toast to the ones who stood up to fight/ That others could sing this song here tonight
Time will tell of who rose and who fell, who fought and who sat at the peal of the bell
It's all so fragile and oh, so thin/This tightrope we walk without falling in
We walked around the edges of the fire/And survived by love and love's desire
There's a light that shines on what we've learned/and it rests on the dust of the bridges we burned
And the worn string that binds this ball/will hold us fast despite our faults
Make our move from this friendless fight/ Close the door on this endless night
A giant step for all mankind/ grab the best and leave the worst behind
A journey through one narrow gate/ a warning we should sit up straight
Reaching through that radiant flame/ To finally live and touch again
A brightness seen, that’s galaxy wide/ A future that’s damaged, but won’t be denied
When the embers finally settle/ What remains is the pure our mettle
Rising waters and trembling dirt/ The power of love rocking this old earth
One heart always ready to learn/ As one, all together while the fire burns
Grateful for each breath/ of this rebirth/ Saved again/by Mother Earth
Moving out of shade/ and into light/ We greet this new gift from the night
And we wave at all/ that's passing by/ Knowing this is not goodbye
Let's talk about the future and restart/ Let's dig in deep and find a little heart No one is around/no one to keep us down/ Watch as we rise rise rise
I used to wonder about destiny/ Of tomorrows and what they could be/ But monsters came/ With rope and chain/ And silence to bind
We put down our TVs, put down our phones/ Stood up to shout out, together alone/ Can't sit and wait, relying on fate/ to come save us
We worry from this deck of Noah's ark/ there is no pier that we can find to park/ We send out our dove/in hope that our love/ Still knows how to fly
Facing up to painful truth/ No Clark Kent or old phone/ History will joke that the planet spoke/ And said...we are the disease
Longing for brighter yesterdays/ Dancing through debris and decay/ Diamonds of hope or the end of a rope/ At each corner
Battery Park up to Sugar Hill/ Dread claps his hands like dread always will
Empty buildings of concrete and steel/ Silent as shadows and just as surreal
Gotta keep tomorrow in our site/ Today we take the chance to make things right
The sun still does its thing across the sky/ spreading rays of hope for you and I
One beat, that binds a million hearts/ One world still shining in the dark
Put it all together and it seems to me/ We've got a chain forged in unity
But it's not about you and it's not about me/ It's about last chance for some harmony/
Simple moments that touch the heart/Make change eternally
But it's not about you and it's not about me/ It's about one world and some harmony/
It's not enough to be part of the chain/ We should be dancing in this pouring rain/ The world will wait, while we clean our slate/ And she'll be there with open arms again
This is all so raw, like a open wound/ But there's no time to heal/ We must decide and soon/ Take a higher road/ Leave the past behind/ Lead the way ahead/ And see what we can find
No cosmic cure, no magic spell/ This world was pure, we made it hell/ But with hindsight there is hope/ But we must do more than cope/ We'll save this...this one time... this one world... this one home
We've only got one world/ We haven't got a spare/ One world/ I think it's big enough to share/ This blue oasis is our heart and our home/ A world united beats a world alone.
I can't unread any headlines/ Can't unfeel any pain/ These aren't just numbers, these are people/ That I may never see again
One world, another sunrise/ Another chance to help it grow/ One world, and if we choose wise/ It'll be here forever more
Got no reason to not believe in tomorrow/ We're not fading like a light in the distance/ We've all been through a lot of pain and sorrow/ One world bound together in resistance
There's only one world/ And if my feeling's correct/ It's time to raise up our hearts/ While our hands reconnect
Let's cheer as the fire dies down/ let's dance on the coals/ We'll burn the masks and the fear/ and face the world once more
We all walk down different paths/ We all need different things/ We'll all meet up in the end/ One world and all that it brings
Let’s leave the shadows behind/Jump together as one/ Who knows what we will find/In the light of the sun
At least our calendar is clear/No events scheduled for today
So many tomorrows, I thought that we could be/ but we're as fragile as a whisper in the wind
Dying is the painful part of living/ Living is the part we can't control
I'll put my finger to your lips, no words are needed/You'll always hold the best part of my heart
We have a chance to plant new seed/ Not what we want but what we need
Strangers, lonely sudden strangers/ Seeking yesterdays, seeking what we had before
But this must be made of so much more than you and I/ Take this planet that is falling and lift it back into the sky
Never knew I could miss you so much/ Distance is no substitute for touch/ Blind as we can be/ but it’s not hard to see/ We’re lost in here
Nature seems, is thinning out the herd/ jackals laugh and pass along the word/And we fall in rows, just like dominoes/ From front to rear
But if there’s one thing to take from this/ I’m sure that we will not break from this/ We’re all invited/ to stand united/ In hope, not fear
Me and a rat shared subway seat / Asked me for a dime for some cheese to eat/ No food to be found/ For a penny or pound/ Just souvenirs
We jumped in, stones tucked in our pocket/Blowing on the fuse of this rocket/ So we've set our fate/ On this big round plate/ That much is clear
Silently we stumble down each street/ Turning from the faces that we meet/ Bitter winter rain/ can we try again/ When these skies clear
Trying to keep these memories in my mind / Grieving as I leave them all behind/ Empty streets and dreams/ look around it seems/ All that’s left is fear
I read the signs, so I put up some bricks/
Faux leather couch, paint by number on the wall/ a broken heart, an empty bedroom down the hall
Don't place a stone, on this grave that I call home
If you pull up a stool, you'll hear the words of some fool/ he'll say there's no pain like being alone
There's gravity, there's hope and there's me/ four wooden walls save this sad trinity
From space one couldn't tell/that the Earth's not feeling well/ but Mother Nature's grown a pair of horns like Satan
A million stars, a billion miles away/ no where to go, so I guess that I'll stay
A wishing well and a penny to toss/ a simple prayer and a sign of the cross
The tips of the trees still dance in the breeze, the sun is rolling by and it's still burning. I've got half a glass left and a beat in my chest, the world's still turning
Walked out this morning/ to a deafening quiet/ To a planet- silent, shaking in her shoes
Like Dylan, got my hands in my pockets/ Like a ghost, I am no longer seen
I can’t touch your hand/ I can’t stroke your hair/ A million miles away/ but you’re standing right there
Can you hear it slowly rising/ like a sun on a winter day/ The ice that groans and crackles/ before it shatters all away
It's like a backwards inspiration/ a kick right to the heart/another real chance to rise up/ when daylight feels so dark
Rising waters and trembling dirt/ The power of love rocking this old earth
The picture
Atlas held the world/ just as tight as he could do/ I hold my world when I hold you/ let me hold you…
Time will drag the echoes/ to the past where they belong/ Oh, can you finally hear me calling?/ You’re done falling…
We’ll face these winds and when some calmer days arrive/ The peace you prayed for will surround you/ just look around you…
We’ll look back and wonder/ when these cloudy days go by/ I can’t say who saved who and it don’t matter/ you’re all mattered…
I’ll chase the darkness/ so that you won’t fade away/ We’ll cross this finish line together/ and then forever…
Heaven holds the stars / forever in my heart
I’ll carry you/ If don’t hear what others say/ The biggest dreams can still come true/ When pride’s not in the way/
I threw a prayer/ Into the darkness of your night/ I know it’s lonesome deep in there/ When a soul can’t see the light
A garden grows/ needing sunshine, needing rain/ It might wither in the cold/ but the roots remain the same.
What can I give/ In return for all you shared/ Every moment that I live/ Reflects how much you cared
Heaven holds the stars / forever in my heart
I’ve already made up my mind/ No one ever gets left behind/ Yeah, I will carry you
If that blue ever fades to gray/ I’ll be the first one there to say/ That I will carry you
And if you haven’t read between the lines/ Even hero’s need a hand sometimes…I will carry you
If a thousand candles fade/Even if the winds all blow away….I will carry you
As I stare into that sky (your eyes?)/ I see a million reasons why…I will carry you
Sometimes you sail/ on winds as soft as babies breath/ Sometimes they roar/ like a devil cheatin’ death
I never knew/ just how dark your nights came Or how you flew/ from the heavens down in flame
I don’t mind/if you think you’ll get through on your own I’ll be there/just when you think you’re most alone
Don’t give in/ to the songs that sirens sing/ You can fly/ if you use me as your wings
Childhood dreams/ carry hope as pure as gold/ I’ll carry you/ and all the dreams that you still hold
Like the wings/ of an eagle make it soar/ I’ll carry you/ we’ll fly like we did before
Shooting stars/ give their last love to the night/ And like a star/ I’ll carry you across the sky
Sometimes the rain/ carries hope, but hides the spring/ I’ll lift you up/ until we hear angels sing
And like a sword/ I’ll carry you and fight/ Get on board/ through the storm, into the night
You come along/ I’ll carry you, my friend/ And if we’re strong/ We will own the sky again
Damn those demons rise/Stars fall from your eyes
Always had my back/ what more could I ask
If I reach for you/ would you reach for me?
Every thought you shared/keeps my heart prepared
But heroes aren’t made of stone/Sorrow cuts to the bone/
Gave me the sky/gave me words I still believe/ “Take the world by the hand and give more than you receive”
You set my sails/ Gave me stars to guide my way/ Over waters dark and deep/ You stood by me each day
Turn the page/ See how time has left you torn/ Fight your pride and reach for me/And I'll pull you from the storm
It's hard to fly/on wings so tired and worn/ together we can touch the sky/and remember we are strong
This haunted place is stealing you/and this world doesn’t need another ghost
Endless days and longer nights/It's a never ending ache/Watched you cope, watched you bend/ But I won't watch you break
I've always been next to you/ day one until the day we die/paths pushed us a different way/but I'm always right by your side
How many angels straight from heaven/to bring you back to me?/ I can kneel and pray until judgement day/if it helps your mind get free
It’s like another minefield/ all those triggers that remain/ Explosions only you can see/ keep crippling your brain
This place ain't heaven/I know quite well/I've read the Bible, I know the verses/This place is hell
Some try to cry for help, but the ones that we can’t save/ We salute between our tears/ as they get lowered in the grave
One can only be so brave/ one can only be so strong/ When wolves are clawing at the door/ and the world turn so wrong
Traded cigarettes for whiskey, talked of photographs from home/ Would have taken any bullet in your path
Reliving yesterdays/ and much too crystal clear But I can bury the pain/ cuz there’s still bourbon in here
We were all too young/ and our souls were still green/ Now our hearts hold the weight/of all our eyes have seen
We marched down that road, we took a wrong left turn/ Didn’t know about the pains of war until we smelled flesh burn
I still feel the thunder and the weight of sand/ Still see you lying there, eyes closed, as I reached for your hand
Woke up this morning/ to another closed door/ Tried to clear my head, but I’m so tired, I can’t do it anymore
All I feel is tired, I want to kneel and pray/ All I want to do is have another drink and forget that day
Riding alone in this piece of steel, empty voices pounding in my mind/ It’s a sinking feeling that the rest of me, the best of me was left behind
Every morning there’s a chain/ and it won’t let go/ And you look into the mirror at an empty face that you don’t even know
If you’re feeling the weight of a lifetime ago/ If the dust that settled is rising again, you’ve got to let me know
He asked me once- Does the ringing ever end? Will the flashes ever fade? Will the pain just go away? Can I be who I was again?
I see you, staring out that window and I know where you are/ Still wearing those boots, pounding through sand like a good recruit
Woke up by myself again, yelling at myself again/ Only half remembering the night before
I felt a warm wind blow before the angels sang/ What was left was shattered and all that mattered was to see you again
Lost the path, lost the pace/ nothing here that’s worth the chase/Drowned in dirt, nullified in night
Hand on mouth, foot in grave/ mind set locked on coin we crave/ What we can’t take with us stains our souls
It’s a game that we play/ but the piper gets his pay/ And time is the first line on the bill
We return to the grind/ knowing everything we’ll find/ But there’s so little left in this shade
Still we suckle and we beg/ for our share of witch’s milk/ And the sun’s a little lower in the sky
We’re just reaping, what we sow/ but still question what we grow/ What's left after all this winter kill?
The rhythm is cleansing, for a moment I breathe. Stealing not what I'm wanting, stealing that which I need.
We are all pendulum swings, pieces of thought/ Finding shelter in moments where others have fought
In a box that has no windows, no doors, and no seams/ Escape is just the choice of channeling your dreams
The valve we twist is rusted and afraid/ But when the pressure blows, there’s nothing left but shade
And here leaves whisper and the sky is always blue/ And you look into yourself, for something that is true
I need a moment for a dream, to be reconsumed by light/ I need a minute to remember what is real and what is right
In a search for the real to replenish the soul/ Moments we steal, so we don’t lose control
Close my eyes and lean back ‘til I fall/ Drop everything off, 'til I'm nothing at all
Found my way back to this old pool/ The waters are soft here, deep and cool/
Sip of whiskey/ draw of smoke/ ’til it all becomes a joke/ And the gears of time are set in park
And the culprit of the crime/ is elusive and sublime/ but Justice is a simple brilliant spark (...a stolen moment)
And we wash and we scrub but no matter how we rub/ The poison always leaves its mark
Comes a song, comes a purge, born of mankind’s urge. Comes a fire, dancing from a spark
Corrosive and unfair, but it’s an acid we all share/ And it burns from the skin into the heart
Heart of mid-town, feast alone/A search for meat on concrete bone
Snap of finger, bite of time/ Simple lyric, nursery rhyme/ The silence in this empty mine/ Is treasure more than any gem can buy
Tiny specks dance in the distance/ I seek a path of least resistance/ Moments that define existance/ Is it stealing if it’s what keeps you alive
Sun was shining, street was hot/I thought of something I forgot
In this world of just suppose/ Where bridges burn like neon glows/ Where demons dress in fancy clothes/ And milk and tears get lost inside you
I see the cliffs I dance along/ I hear the devil’s heartbeat song/ It’s mystifying music with a message I still feel as I fall down
Take life’s punches, it ain’t hard/ Wipin’ sweat with no regard/ I’m runnin’ ‘round this empty ring/ Searchin' for a side door ‘cause there’s room here to breath
Rest assured that lines get blurred/ There’s something lost in every word/ And moments meant to contemplate/ To feed your soul get swept out doors like dust
And though time has spoken, I will not be broken and...
And I won’t be haunted by the time I wanted
And like lightning flashes, we turn time to ashes
Like a bird I’m flying, on your faith I’m riding
If I can just forgive me, I’ll find peace within me
With so much to cherish, I can’t let time perish
I may have no castle, but I’ve won this battle
Every heartbeat reminds me how I need you beside me/ If it was only a dream, I could wake up and scream But time gets the last laugh in the end
Every heartbeat reminds me of what’s left inside me/ And any pain I release while I’m searching for peace Like all us, just drifts away
...every heart beat unwinds me/ It's a message I've learned should be read and then burned. Let love be the lesson that stays
...to leave wishes behind me/ Look each day in the eye; every laugh, every cry And leave dreaming for those who won’t dance
…every heartbeat invites me/ To reach out every day before time slips away ‘cause tomorrow just might never come
Every heartbeat reminds me and I use it to guide me/ ‘cause there’s an angel out there with a lock of your hair and she’s waiting for you to come home
Every heartbeat reminds me, that the past cannot bind me/ I won’t cling to the chains of yesterday’s rains though tomorrow may hold the same cloud.
Every heartbeat reminds me, every sunrise defines me/ If I keep every day, time can’t take it away, no matter how hard it tries
And we'll fight off the cold of knowing
Time flies like pennies in a candy store, yeah....
We all race but get the same reward...
Oh, can we wind our clocks just a little more...
Floodlights fading from our dance floor
Time continues it's whispering roar...life is short
I'd give anything to change the truth
Lost in this rain I am learning...life is short
Thankful to learm before time shuts the door
Love is the pain that reminds us
(Our) tears will tell us what we already know
...and time can’t make me let go
Race from the shadows of yesterday’s grip
Leave all my pride in some lonely abyss
Know in my heart that each heartbeat's a gift
Life is too short to lose moments like this
Weave threads of gold from every wrong twist
Push back on time until time up and quits
Grab life by the horn and just ride ‘til it quits
Exhale all the fire (or anger), inhale happiness
The joys that were squandered, each time my mind wandered/ It’s the moments I missed while I lived to exist, that make me feel saddest somehow
Though I still hear the voices of a billion bad choices/ I can stand on this shore and shout thanks to the Lord I can still face each morning somehow
The empty I’m feeling, staring at this ceiling/ Tells me I’ve lost my aim at this carnival game, stuck on this merry-go-round
I look back and wonder, I look back and hunger/ I’m was starving and keening for life and its meaning. I guess I missed it somehow
The ending is clearer, with each look in the mirror/ Not sure where I will go, but one thing that I know; I’ve lived my life upside-down
The rumble of twilight, the silence of midnight/ I fought lying down with my face in the ground, no sword to give up to the plow
You can’t beg, steal, or borrow one single tomorrow/ And you’re tempting your fate if you’re starting too late. Time’s like a gun to your brow
Found moments to borrow to push back tomorrow/ Any plans that I made were like sweet lemonade, but my glass has gone empty somehow (corrected...)
Found moments to borrow to push back tomorrow/ Any the plans that I made were like sweet lemonade, but my glass has gone empty somehow
Don’t look forward too far to the hope in dim star It so easy to say, you should live every day, but I learned too slowly some how
There’s no free tomorrow and none you can borrow/ Leaving nothing to chance; I’m done waiting to dance before I take my final bow
The mountains get steeper, the water gets deeper/ I don’t know how to feel, I’m just riding this wheel, still keeping control somehow
But most castles crumble in silence or mumble/ If there’s nothing to bind, it’s just dust left behind/ and that's more than my life can allow
No matter how perfect or how deep the strife/ You’ve always gotta keep some heart in your life
We all start with little steps, oh, don’t we now/ But suddenly gray takes over somehow
Me and this clock have been racing side by side/ I’m running on fumes and he’s still in full stride
Like to think I’ve got life under tight control/ But dying’s always just a breath away
Not looking forward to the day this old marble lets me go/ And I’ve torn any tickets I’d need to get into the show
I’m not a fool, I’ve been around/ I know one minute you can be on top, the next you’re in the ground
I can’t tell if you’re breathing, I only know you’re too many miles away/ But no news is good news and for now I guess that’s how it’ll stay
A rabbit said “I’m gonna spend every day in the shade of these trees.”/ The hawk laughed and said “Son, life doesn’t give you any guarantees.”
The dance floor seems to be a little more empty these nights/ so many old friends off catching their last midnight flights
Another twenty one guns at a grave today/another warrior gone, another one on the way.
We used to gather on Sundays right around five/ pass potatoes, roast beef and save some room for pie.
High school feels like a year ago and tomorrow still seems like a dream/ and I can't fit in a five pound bag, the ten pounds of pain I've seen.
Time is tearless and it doesn't hold a grudge/you can waste every second and time will never judge.
Time is a game and the dice are loaded/ and the house always wins in the end.
I woke up this morning, my kids were grown and gone/ the sun keeps soaring and it's dragging me along.
It's not a long road for everyone, it's just a road/ more about about how walk it, that's what I'm told.
That sun is riding on a jet airliner/ With a ticket to tear up the sky
I’m breathing in deep these rain soaked days/ Hoarding every flying minute I can
Momma was gone in '81, Daddy lasted til '92/ They won a little but lost it all, nothing that they could do
So much to know, so little time/ Holding onto dreams can never be mine/
The more we wait/ the more we’re gonna shatter/ Faced with fate/ we have to rewind/ Let’s bend, not break/every little branch we climbed... Though I’m never gonna a change your mind
hidden out of sight… Sheltered by the dark/ Fright’ned of the light/ Tearing you apart / The notion that I might…
Lonely as a star/ Frightened of the night/ Something off the chart/ The notion that I might…
No eye to eye / no meeting in the middle / Can’t say goodbye / just gotta rewind / We can’t deny / we’re prob’ly gonna be just fine…but
We’re just two small stars /pasted on this planet / We won’t get far / unless we can align / The door’s ajar / but the writing is on the sign...
I can take the bitter with the sweet
Always gonna be a fool for you/ But something here is sadly going wrong/ If there’s something else that we can do/ I’d really like to know before I’m gone
Never planned for such a bumpy ride/ Kinda put the horse before the cart/ And it hurts to have to stand aside/ Watching as two lovers drift apart
Sharing silence on a lonesome train/ Whispering the words we’d like to shout/ Bought our ticket for this ride in vain/ Never made a plan to work it out
Looks like we could use a little rain/ See if we could mix with the oil/ Find a way to loosen up the chain/ Bring it to simmer from a boil
Oh, if I could count up all the lies/ I tell in the silence of the night/ It’s a game that comes as no surprise/ Prayin’ everything will be alright
We’re both walking down this dead end road/ Distant as our daylight turns to dusk/ And it hurts to reap what we’ve sown/ And seeing what was solid turn to rust
Another day, the same old grind/ Tired as the sun up in the sky/ Are we both afraid of what we’ll find/ If we never start seeing eye to eye
I believe in trust and time for taking chances/ Save that spark/that glimmer of light/ Can we save us/and what’s remaining of our romance/ Am I… …ever gonna change your mind
Well you say you care/but where is your conviction/ I search in vain /but I can never find/ Let me say a prayer/and make this prediction/ I’m…never gonna change your mind
I try to hold on tight/I just keep on repeating/ The clouds could lift/I could see you eye to eye/ But the truth sure hurts and I can’t keep on believing/ That I’m…ever gonna change your mind
Well, I try to make my point/ but the walls get higher/ That angle of sight/ is adjustin’ all time/ Sometime I’d like/ to hold your feet down to the fire/ Or I’m…never gonna change your mind
What’s is gonna take?/ Should the earth stop spinnin’?/ How long can I wait til until you see the light?/ Am I just a fool? Did I know from the beginning? That I’m … never gonna change your mind
Gonna try and find the key/Make your motor turn over/ Maybe change a gear and roll on down the line/ It’ll take a little luck/like a four leaf clover/ If I’m…ever gonna change your mind
Well, when I look back/I guess it’s not a good thing/ Bangin’ your brain/with everything in mine/ What if my thoughts/were bad from the beginning/ I'd know why, I’m never gonna change your mind
I draw that bow/Try to make connections/ Let ideals fly/Try to hit the mark/ They bounce back off/ all of your objections/ No I’m…never gonna change your mind
We play a little game/ Life is like the spinner/ Count each space/ To the corner of the board/ We’re both in jail/ And there won’t be a winner/ And I’m…never gonna change your mind
There’s common ground out there/We just gotta find it/ And even if we don’t/At least we know we tried/ It’s a vow we’ll make /And we gotta get behind it/ Cuz I’m…never gonna change you mind
Well, you have your ways/ Like some kind of assassin/ Sticks and stones/ Holding up your crown/ If you’d just left go/ You might like what happens/ If I’m…ever gonna change you mind
If there’s a trail to take/ I’d love to try and lead ya Facts are maps/ Can you see it that way? Truth be told/ I’m always gonna need ya Though I’m… never gonna change your mind
You always grit your teeth/ When our tongues get rollin’/ You don’t bend/ And you never will/ An eye to eye/ Is a dance we are declining/ Cuz I’m…never gonna change your mind
Well, when I think of us/ And all the time I wasted/ Knocking your head/ Deep into the night/ Guess there’s no chance/ Come hell or high water that I’m…/ Ever gonna change your mind
Everybody has a string/ Or a button to be pushin’/ You and I/ Push it everyday/ I might push/ ‘til we both of us are blinded/ But I’m…never gonna change your mind
I never wanna change your mind/ You keep me guessing like a game show fan/ I never know what I’m gonna find/ We’re flying and we’re never gonna land
No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ But I have to keep a keen eye on the prize/ Maybe there’s a middle we can find/ Or maybe letting go is just as wise
No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ A record spins with nothing much to say/ Another round before it’s closing time/ I can almost see the echoes fade away
No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ A window in the dark with curtains drawn/ I know that it’s bolted from behind/ With all the terrors that change can bring along
No, I’m never gonna change your mind/ Can’t push an rhino sitting on a swing/ If oil and water don’t combine/ I’ll need everything a little luck can bring.
I’m never gonna change your mind/ And this feeling that it’s time for moving on/ Sorry that I’m leaving you behind/ Gonna miss you like the devil when you’re gone
I’m never gonna change your mind/ (I guess it’s just a little game I play) On anything, anywhere or anytime And the gap is getting wider every day
I’m never gonna change your mind/ That your view from your tower’s well designed
I don't really wanna change your mind/ but there's something in the wind that's changing mine
I said I'm never gonna change your mind/And my mirror said it back to me in kind
I'm never gonna change your mind/it isn't proper putting lipstick on a swine.
I’m never gonna change your mind/ Guess your Kool-Aid must be sweeter than mine
I’m never gonna change your mind/ And right now I’m needing whiskey more than wine
No, I’m never gonna change your mind/But if you’d just turn into me that would be fine
I’m never gonna change your mind/ Pity, baby, gotta send you down the line
I’m never gonna change your mind/ Tell you what; take your shot at changing mine
I’m never gonna change your mind/ Guess we’ll be feuding now until the end of time
I wouldn’t wanna try’n change your mind/ Not for a million dollars or a dime
I’m never gonna change your mind/ That’s a mountain that this woman will not climb
I don’t wanna try and change your mind/ And flying in those clouds is flying blind
I’m never gonna change your mind/ Too a big task and I’ve got so little time
I’m never gonna change your mind/ About anything, anywhere or anytime
I don’t wanna try and change your mind/ But some ideas are really better left behind
I’m never gonna change your mind/ But maybe move your brain to take a peek behind
I don’t wanna try and change your mind/ A little give and take to start would do us fine
I don’t wanna try and change your mind With so many thoughts so clearly undefined
Like gasoline and a red hot match, girl
I’ll get along, I know/viva El Paso
A dunce cap for a fool/For losing you
Would these words make it clear, if you could hear...
Here's to love and what remains/ after the flames
But the hardest part, you know/was watching you go.
Tumbleweed, blowing through/ Girl, I loved you
Yeah, El Paso’s in my mind/ Not left behind
If your dreams were just like mine, you’re doing fine
The lesson the end/we’re better friends
But if you never try/ Can’t learn to fly
The photo fades away/ the laughter stays
Dusty deisel engine whine/her laugh still on my mind...
One locked moment, one tick in time/ Changes the world, it sure changed mine
Time and distance, are magic things/ Make you forget what heartache brings
Not much comes close to what we shared/ And that rip is pretty much repaired
I made some bricks, but put them down/ You can’t move on with walls around
I guess I’m richer than before/ And I don’t take pictures anymore
Yeah, found that picture, heard you talking:/ “Don’t change your walk, just where you’re walking”
I can smile like I couldn’t then/ Took a while to get around that bend
Made me crazy, for just a while/ Souvenirs, El Paso, and that devil smile
I guess it’s true, that I’m over you/ But El Paso’s just a memory away
Here’s to the ashes and empty bottles / And goodbyes that taste so whiskey smooth
That ain’t a tear, dropped on your face/ It’s a stain I can finally wipe away
One step forward, two drinks down/ Time to move on, from that ghost town
Hello sunrise, whatcha’ thinkin’?/ Is it time to let the past just slip away
Watched the sunset, sippin’ whiskey/ Letting go of things that I can’t change
But like my hair line, our love kept receding
But I think I can finally stop repeating: Yeah, we gave it all we had
You can lie to yourself to stop the bleeding
One faded photo and I’m barely breathin’
And fairy tales aren't meant to believe in... but we gave it all we had
But you can pretend you've stopped believing
Or the hole in my heart that needs healing
Thought I really found a heart worth stealing
Can't stop the world and can't you can’t stop breathin’
Or empty nights staring at the ceiling
Least we left a lot of time for healin’
But the final lesson left us reelin’
I’d like to go back to that Texas town/ And see what’s left of what we burned down/ Where we lost what we thought we found/ Where there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back/
Thunder and lightning for a couple of weeks/ ‘Til cold rain poured on those El Paso streets/ Ah, but while we burned it was sweet/ And there ain’t one kiss …
We burned brighter than a night full of stars/ Made some bad choices but the choices were ours/ Now all we have left are the scars/ But there ain’t one kiss …
Thought we’d make it through the flame and smoke/ Thought we kept it simple, that just a joke/ It must’ve been love because my heart got broke But there ain’t one kiss...
Lust and liquor made a mighty fine fuel/ You burned me and baby, I burned you/ Not really sure who was fooling who/ But there ain’t one kiss...
We were more about feeling than how we felt/ Two lovers trying to loosen up the bible belt/ In the end we both folded on the hands we dealt/ But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
That was so many gray hairs ago/ But there’s one thing I think you already know/ Your love was something that I’ll never outgrow / And there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
After all these years, I hope you’re doing alright/ Bet your still smoking hot like an August night/ I’ll always remember you just like that… And there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
But like mid-day clouds in a Texas sky/ We melted away and I’m not sure why/ But just between you and I… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
We made sidewalks sizzle and that Texas sun sweat/I bet the whole city hasn't cooled off yet/A fool's paradise, baby, that's a fact/ But there ain't one kiss...
Sometime I’d like to touch your heart again/ Or maybe it’s better that we just stay friends/ All I know is in the end… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Those kind of fireworks burn out quick/ Nothing left but the glow on a candle wick/ But when I tend to think of it… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Flames took us higher than we could sustain/ But we came down harder than a Texas rain/ And though it makes me face the pain… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
We both got burned with no regret/ Moments of magic that I’ll never forget/ And I still know that… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Can’t remember or I don’t want to try/ Only know that when we said good bye/ Still saw a spark of what we had... There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Burned brighter than that Texas sun/ Guess it wasn’t quite love, but it sure was fun/ Mmmm, that smile in your photograph… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
With just a gust of that Texas wind/ We might burst into flame again/ And while I’m waiting on that breeze… There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Didn’t take much wind to make our sparks ignite/ But we ran out of heat one Texas night, yeah/ But I’d do it all again and.. There ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust/ we thought we had it all, but it wasn't enough...but there...
Somewhere in the heat, we got a lesson learned/ We played with fire and we both got burned... But there...
Like gasoline and a red hot match, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Love’s gotta big to be a big mistake, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Lost more than my mind in that Cadillac, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ There was a time when I couldn’t say that girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ You keep ‘em all, I’ll keep the photograph, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ That night’ll last longer than this photograph, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Can't stop replaying that same old track, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Left most of my heart in that world
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl Even if time tells me it was all an act, girl
Not one second I’d wanna to forget, girl
But there ain’t one kiss I’d wanna take back, girl/ Or one second that seemed off track, girl
Ain’t much fair about a love affair/ When one’s in love, ‘n' the other don’t care, But there ain't…
Nothin’ else made too much sense/ Leavin’ was just self-defense but there ain’t…
I just wish you’d fill me in/ I’d come right back again/ ‘cuz there ain’t…
But all we had to make us complete/ Was between the sheets. Still there ain’t
I can smile like I couldn’t then/ Got around that bend, But there ain’t...
Sometimes things just fall apart/ Like a broken heart. But there ain’t
So good to see you, girl/ You were my world and there ain’t…
And I’d still jump in my car/ If I knew where you are cuz there ain’t...
You took that thing called trust/ blew it away like so much dust. Still...
Girl, I’m still feeling that crush/ Though you didn’t leave much, there ain’t...
A camera stopped that second in time/ You kept walking on down the line
And it goes somethin’ like this/ What you never had, you can’t miss, but there ain’t
All wrung out, left to dry/ Me and that endless Lone Star sky. Still there…
Ran into the fire, came out burned/ Lesson taught, lesson learned. Still there…
It all broke apart like Texas dirt/ No room for love, only room for hurt. Still there…
I turned left, you turned right/ Makin’ love wasn’t love that night. But there ain’t…
You were looking for love/ but I wasn’t the one. Still there ain’t...
Gotta pay for the checks you write/ Paying for mine most every night…Still there ain’t
Wasting away in my thin skin/ Nothin to say ‘bout the mind I’m in… Still there ain’t
Bitter pills they taste the worst/ Still it seems I’m somehow cursed...Cuz there ain’t...
Leaning back in this old chair/One thing I swear…There ain’t
Had a lot of time for thinkin’ and I think sometimes…There ain't
But love had a hefty price to pay/ Still only one thing I can say…There ain’t
Still wonder why you let me go/ there's only one thing that I know...There ain't...
I touched you under the table/ Can't say where it went after that
Sun was falling, heat was rising/ The AC didn’t stand a chance
You were my one shot at heaven/ Should have known there’d be no looking back
Found it with some yellowed postcards/ In a drawer where I try to hide my past
Could your hair still be that golden/ Your lips still wet as morning grass
Our love was wider than the Rio/ hotter than a Texas summer sun
Drove all night to get to Vegas/ Following our hearts without a map
And it doesn't break my heart no more/ it's just a piece of paper from the past
I knew how to make you smile/ never learned how to make it last
You always found the best in life/ Like every moment was the last
I want to jump right back in time/ But that moment has long passed
Like a song I haven’t heard in years/ On this broken phonograph
I thought I knew just what you wanted/ But the question wasn’t asked
Wonder if you have your copy/ Or if you’ve torn it in half
There were real flames inside that Ford/ And they left scars along the dash
My God, we looked like children/ Your skin still looked just like glass
We just had money for two beers/ And cut a hamburger in half
We must have hung around that restaurant/ For an hour and a half

I’m learning love is more than all the lines I’ve tossed away
My history of ancient love and all its guarantees/ Catalogs of lust and pain and bitter memories
This is what a promise is/ and this is how it breaks
White band on my finger, where a band of gold once stayed
Friday night, boots are off/ TVs on, another evening lost
I could write everything I know about love/ on the back of a stamp, if I tried
Table for one, whisky for two
I'm trying to use this pencil, trying to make a list/ trying open the flood gates like a razor to my wrist
I have my chin in my hand, my heart on my sleeve/ Trying to accept what I cannot believe
I’ve never felt lost with a woman/ Never found myself searching my soul
You and I have made a life of constant ups and downs/ And this roller coaster ride is wearing thin
Just me and a pillow, together one more tonight/ And the remains of the slightest scent of you
Nothing like a pile of broken yesterdays/ To make you look at how your life has gone
Line ‘em up, Coach, I’ll knock ‘em down/ I just lost the prettiest lady in town
Sometimes I think dying is easier than change/ Nothing like day to day to save you from the strange
I don’t want to play games, that’s what she said/ Don’t need another man, for just a bounce in a bed
I can look out any window and see you standing there/ It seems memories and beer can’t fill the void
There’s a wedding photo in a broken frame/ Her ring on the counter and I’m to blame/ Looks like I failed another lesson on how to love...
You’re leaving on the next train or bus or I don’t care/ Walked out without a reason or a why / My sanity is coming back from hiding out somewhere / Thanks putting all the good back in “goodbye”
We weren’t together for a long time/ Just long enough to be sure I’d feel the pain/ Seems love songs are never really over/ You just add another line to the refrain
I guess it’s too late for another “I’m sorry”/ And no last kiss to rest my dreams upon/ We’re not that match made in heaven now are we/ Time to lick my wounds and try to move on/
Don’t talk to me, whiskey/you told me that she was the one/ I always listen to you, whenever you’re passing through/ But now look what you’ve done
Look at me with my thoughts hanging; empty as my heart is broke/ Love leads you though so may turns that learning from it seemed a joke
Another flood, another day, love happens that way/ And I’m learning by disaster as just fast as I can
She said as she was leaving I gave her no reason to stay/ Threw my bottle at the wall and watched world turn gray
Thought that I was done with yesterday/ Nothing left to face there anyway
We walked off our separate ways, doesn’t seem that long ago/ Anger passed, frustration passed, but what I’ve taken from it I don’t know
Hey, hourglass in the corner, the sun don’t shine on you/ Time to tip you over, let you teach me a thing or two
…ending with your kiss/ I find/ I am completely addicted (to)
…ending with your kiss/ And time, is all that’s left to share (with...)
...ending with your kiss/ daylight, and I know just what I will find there
ending with your kiss/ the sky/ Is the road to our horizon
ending with your kiss, but I? See endings as beginnings
..ending with your kiss and I/ Pray that my heart can take it
…ending with your kiss, so right/Needs, more important than wanting
…ending with your kiss, so right/I know the magic is in there
…ending with your kiss, so right/Just to start over again
...ending with your kiss, so right/Just to start over and over
Blink and the moment might be gone/might burn up with the dawn
Blink and the moment might be gone/might burn up the dawn
Cool, but night breeze fans the flame/and you’re touching me again
Now, in the darkness time is still/and I pray we always will/ Play this moment forever
Here, we rolled, a pair of dice/ double sixes came up twice/ and we weren’t even bettin’
You…and a t-shirt, glass of wine/like perfection, redefined/ And this bottle is not empty...
Fire…playing games with us tonight/We burn by candlelight/ Now we dance in the embers
Words, but I don’t have much to say/thoughts of you got in their way/ But I hope I can find them
Night, and we’re lost until we’re not/I’ve learned more than I’ve forgot/ And the road is wide open
Touched, but I still want so much more/ Let’s see what daylight has in store/ Cause I think that I can take it…
To be a king, just need one thing...
And here with you, if they only knew...
No peace of mind, if they can’t find...
I don’t mind, but they'll need to find..
You can look, but I can't share...
Trading kisses for words, keeping time on the run/ We’ll cling to the night while we curse at the sun.
Trading kisses for words, keeping time on the run/ We’ll cling to the night while we curse at the sun.
Let’s hold up forever between evening and dawn/ Kissing and lovin’, until the world is gone.
The silence is gold, there’s nothing left here to say/ I’m just moving my lips to thankfully pray… Just can’t believe/ God sent me
Don’t want to sleep, don’t want to wake up and find/ This dance was only taking place in my mind
Forget the morning, one more glass of wine/ These evening’s deserving of a little more time
That last sip of whiskey, didn’t go to my head/ I know I’m spinning from the dream in my bed
Another day dawning, and I’m willing to bet/ I’ll see more than diamonds in those small beads of sweat
The moon played a waltz, the stars did a dance/ We followed their lead and left nothing to chance.
Watched the sun rise while you slept by my side/ Lost in the silence as our two hearts collide
Watched the sunrise while you slept by my side/ There’s something growing here that can’t be denied
Can hardly define/ this moment in time/Words are just sounds when you are around…someone so rare.
I see in your face/daVinci’s embrace/I’m lost in the flare of the fire in there with...someone so rare
But you’re someone so real/That I can touch and can feel/And every moment we share, I’m completely aware, you're.../Someone so rare
That smile, that stare/Who else could compare?/Who is the one who’s got me walking on air/ ...Someone so rare
Someone so rare... Has a heart that beats the same as mine/ Makes me feel a way that I cannot define/ So glad the heavens could take the time to share/ Someone so rare.
Someone so rare... Could be in the spotlight, on a pedestal or throne/ Not sure I deserve the only love I've ever known.
It’s like whisky by the thimble, aged so perfect I can’t stop/ So rare a find, but I can’t unwind, with love served by the drop
Someone So Rare/ This answered prayer/ More treasure than angels could bring/ Someone So Rare/ A lifetime to share/ A song only heaven could sing
Candle flare/ Handle with care
What you bring/ Is everything
A last inhale/ Found the grail
Holdin' tight/This one's right
Morning wine/ A silver mine
Understand/ The gold in hand
Just the truth/ And my hen’s tooth
Something’s are lost/ Some are found
I found you/ Out of the blue
We know the obvious next move, let’s run from the path of the norm/ And enjoy the perfect silence we’ll make, lost in the eye of the storm
Don’t want to embarrass us with words when deeds will do/ I’ll stay silent; looking, dreaming, hoping all of this is true
So want to keep you to myself, but like a work of art/ It’s not fair to the world to keep us apart
You’ve got me shakin’ in my shoes like a little lost kid/ Not sure which way to turn, but I’ll be glad when I did
And I’m just a little bit frightened, hell, girl, I’m scared to death/ I’d love to tell you all about it, but you’ve taken away my breath
This is me and this is you, this everything is us/ Guess there’s no denying, there’s nothing left here to discuss
The sun has made you golden, silver dances in your hair/ I’ve only scratched the surface, but the tension is there
I’d be lying if I said I ever felt this way before/ You touch my heart in places that I might not endure (or...you're touching me in places that I might not endure)
Surrounded by each other, hands lost in the glare/ You make me feel far richer, than a rich billionaire
A state without borders or guidelines or rules/ Where time can stand still and I’ll always have you
Let this moment turn to treasure, something pure and true/ No need for any thinking, when I’m thinking of you
Cup your face in my hands; look deep in your eyes/ I’m the luckiest man beneath that sun in the sky
Whisky and anything, an August night/ You and Dr Hook, makin' everything right
There’s never been moonlit night that’s shined on someone like you/ A million nights waxing and waiting for a dream to come true
I’m afraid one day, I’ll look around and find/ You’ve gone away, leaving me behind
My blood is at a boil, that’s a pretty good sign/ Let’s you and I make some planets align
You can tell from the ashes, she’s lost at love before/ Been burned so many times, that there’s no fire no more.
She’s the line in my highway, the “S” in my curve/ She’s more of a woman than I really deserve
Never lost my heart before, always kept it in control/ Now all the chains are off so it can try to catch your soul
Let the past hide in the back seat, we’ll ride up here in front/No looking back to yesterday, tomorrow’s all we want
They thought every city was Paris, every drink: champagne/ Life kicked them around, but they didn’t complain/ So lost in each other, all that mattered was another sunrise.
Big wild world, you took some pity on me/ Brought a light to my life I never thought I’d see
The rattle of old shutters, the smell of rust/ Time to pick ourselves up and shake off all the dust
I don’t need part of you, I need all of you/ From the first day that we met, I knew that much was true
I’m not disturbed, but I really thought I’d lost my mind/Waiting for the one I never thought I’d find
The word on the street about you and I/ We’re wastin’ to much time watching time go by
I look into your eyes, like a million times before And still get lost like I did back in 1984
With chains from the past, she was tied to the ground Now all bonds are broken and nothing, nothing’s gonna slow her down.
No longer lost in fear and doubt, she stands ten feet tall and shouts: Tomorrow is the only dream I need!
She wants to be a landslide and tear skin up from the earth And dream at night of how she’ll fight and show them all she’s worth.
She’s done reflecting, finished with fools and moving on to where she makes the rules.
She's fought many battles and argued with fate, and won't accept crumbs when a feast awaits.
Limits are just images the world throws your way / She can’t believe in everything, but she believes in another day.
Yeah, it looks like she’ll never stop fighting / You don't drop the pen, if you're not finished writing.
Roadblocks behind her, if you look you will find her... dancing ten miles down the road.
She doesn't want to die, but she sees something in the cards. Doesn't want to cry, but some things are too hard.
Every sunrise, each tomorrow is a lifetime And she’s drinking every moment like it’s wine
In the darkest forest one can find/ a path to leave the past behind
A song from heaven, she’ll keep hummin’/ Nothin’ gonna slow this freight train comin’
Begs forgiveness for the times she’s sinned, breathes in the fate of the comin’ wind.
A giant oak from a seed of doubt, time to move before time runs out.
Takes each day and leads it home/ gives it life like a whispered poem
A faith that's deep and keeps getting stronger/ she'll punch and she'll kick 'til she can't any longer.
Listens for the music of a million guitars/ looks at the night, trying to see past the stars.
No red sports car , not a house of gold, just a summer night and a hand to hold.
Shadows feast on canyon walls, she swings away and sees them fall And feels the glow…
Inner voice that lifts her high/ a wink of hope as she walks by
No leather gloves, no shuffling feet/ just a beautiful smile for whoever she meets
Each day shorter than the last, who knew that time could fly so fast
Clings to stars, bathes in blue. Everyday day until each day is through.
A new side of life to learn, but candle that she has to burn.
So many wishes, so many dreams/ so much life that's left to share. She goes whistling past the graveyard and the ghosts that haunt her there.
She’s a diamond/she can make this right. Diamonds and wishes, shine brightest on the coldest nights
You put it on you/to see this thing through Make the dream big, what else can you do
Time to fly, midnight nears/ leave the past and dry those Cinderella tears.
And let her see how fear destroys/ Quiet love screams louder than all noise
All she needs is to feel and know / she’s never alone down this long and lonely road.
This old house, though not so warm Broken windows, missing shingles, it still stands up in the storm. Thieving winds pull dreams away. Oh, wishes can be heroes on these empty autumn days.
And she’ll wave that empty bottle at the devil when he comes, Throwing wishes out like lightning in the night. And he’ll run like hell for cover just like all the cowards do. She’ll believe in dreams again and she’ll be right.
And she’s clinging to this coil like she never has before. And she knows, oh, she knows... Every room she walks through just leads to one more. And she hopes, yes, she dreams... She believes there is an answer to a wish behind each door.
Someday the ache will fly away A wish will fall and the sun will rise on a better day Her heart still glows, because she knows The destination is the dream and the dream just is the walk along the way
Whiskey wishes, bourbon dreams. Every night ending in the bottom of a glass it seems Says her prayers, ‘n drifts way Runs like she did, when she was kid…back…back then, when she didn’t need dreams.
Clouds gather and try to hide the all hopes of her tomorrows. She won’t cry, they’ll go by. And wishes warm the night and help to wash away those sorrows. She smiles, for a while, even knowing time is only something everyone just borrows.
In the distance stands a chorus, healing as it sings. She listens and she wonders where these angels hide their wings.
Leaning on hope, hoping on dreams, a silent battle filled with silent screams.
Calling the bluff on non-believers, she’s makes her last stand. This is where the road divides and reaches for her hand.
Builds a shelter from the pain like only dreamers can do. Smiles knowing someday that her wish will come true
It seems winter came to early and settled in too deep. Spring is just a vision dancing dimly in her sleep.
She rides a rough ocean, tries to calm the swells by dropping silver dollars into wishing wells
She rides a rough ocean, tries to calm the swells by dropping silver dollars into wishing wells
Likes the look of her lipstick on long cigarettes, but sees most of her life as a list of regrets.
Rushes corner to corner, when life gets hard. Finds solace in the lyrics of a Hallmark card.
Still, sometimes, she would like to collide. If you miss all the bumps, you're just along for the ride.
If her wishes we're buttons, she would never get dressed. Sees every rainy morning as another day blessed.
Walks through her world at her ho-hum pace, no need to look past the end of her face.
That's the way it's always been. Little like a lie, little like a sin.
