    This Is Our Time

    you can see it all on the streets of the city
    from lovers in love to others in a fight for survival
    and in the rush of the sound and the light
    sometimes I want to lose it
    ‌somewhere in the noise I can hear music
    somewhere in the noise I can hear music

    These are my people
    This is our time
    Together where learning
    Together were going to leave em behind
    We never had more beauty
    We never been closer to shine
    These are my people this is our time

    now I work all day at a job I can't feel in
    I stare into the eye of each passer by
    I know their searching for some deeper meaning
    everybody wants some ground to plant their seeds in
    I'm the type that needs something to believe in
    I'm the type that needs something to believe

    These are my people this is our time
    Together where growing
    Together were going to leave em behind
    We never had more knowledge
    We never been closer to find
    These are my people and this is our time this is our time

    INSTRUMENTAL

    These are my people this is our time
    Together where working
    Together were going to leave em behind
    We never had more power
    We never had so much on the line
    These are my people this is our time
    These are my people this is our time
    Together we're learning
    Together were going to leave em behind
    We never had more angels
    Ready and willing to climb
    These are my people this is our time

    Care Too Much

    bless your heart you want to get on top
    you want that view from the roof of the world
    and there ain't no stopping till you drink the last drop
    and lay with every beautiful girl
    and you know more then you know
    I hope that you enjoyed the show
    now lean your head back reach your hands up to the sky

    Not like I don't care enough
    I ain’t giving up
    Not like I can't feel your touch
    It's that I care too much I care too much

    make a dollar on your dime
    reach your hand inside the womb of the world
    till there’s nothing precious left to find
    precious is your mind
    where we going to run to now
    we could still come together some how
    don't believe cause I tell you so

    Not like I don't care enough
    I ain’t giving up
    Not like I can't feel your touch
    It's that I feel too much
    Not like I don't care enough
    I ain’t giving up
    Not like I can't feel your touch
    It's that I care too much I care too much

    Heaven and hell base it all off of instincts
    Though they mean well don’t give a damn what our friends think
    No man will ever stop this pens ink
    When the pen hits the paper they are one and they are in synch
    No mean to ruin the surprise I surmise
    but I guarantee I’ll see you like the hunger in a wolves eyes
    Verbal exercise trying to get my weight up
    Styles like the dawn to catch it you got to wake up
    I’m on the hunt for a blunt in the buried treasure
    Must be David Bowie cause I’m under so much pressure
    Let you slide but next time I’m going to get you
    Cocaine lyrics got you addicted to the pleasure
    Never let these haters hate thinking they can have a taste
    School me to the game son you didn’t even graduate
    Last in class moving at a masters pace
    I’m moving at a faster rate then all the rats up in the race

    (2Xs)
    Not like I don't care enough

    I ain’t giving up
    Not like I can't feel your touch
    It's that I feel too much
    Not like I don't care enough
    I ain’t giving up
    Not like I can't feel your touch
    It's that I care too much I care to much

    Can't Let Go

    tell me baby just one more time
    don’t make me sit all alone and cry
    it’s over, over but I can’t let go
    like a cat in water a fish in a tree
    you don’t event want to talk to me
    it’s over, but I can’t let go

    she won’t take me back when I come around
    she says she’s sorry as she puts me out
    I got a big chain around my neck
    and I’m going down like a train wreck I’m going down

    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na
    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na

    see I got a candle and it burns so bright
    by my window every night
    it’s over and I know it but I can’t let go
    you don’t like to see me hanging round
    I been shot but I won’t go down
    it’s over, but I can’t let go

    she won’t take me back when I come around
    she says she’s sorry as she puts me out
    I got a big chain around my neck
    and I’m going down like a train wreck, I’m going down

    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na
    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na

    you turn off trouble like your turning of a light
    went off and left me and it just ain’t right
    round every corner something I see
    bring me right back how it use to be
    bring me right back how it use to be
    bring me right back how it use to be
    bring me right back how it use to be
    you bring me right back

    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na
    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na
    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na
    And its over baby over but I can’t let go, na na
    na na, na na, na na, na na, na na, na na, na na

    Girl That's Crazy

    they say that girl is crazy
    and how she's cut from a different stone
    she like man and woman
    and she like to leave them with their hearts torn
    they say that girl is crazy
    she'll make you feel better then you ever before
    she'll give you everything that she has
    but she'll take from you even more
    yeah she'll take from you even more

    I get drawn to the fire
    I'm getting older but I ain't getting wiser
    And I know I'm a liar
    But I'm searching for the truth
    All the years that I try and I try and I try
    But it always seems to be I go back to the girl that's crazy

    they say that girl is crazy
    she'll know you from the lines on the palm of your hand
    she'll look right through you
    and tell you what the futures planned
    they say that girl is crazy
    and how she come from a broken home
    she's got a void inside her that no one can fill
    maybe one day with a child of her own
    maybe one day with a child of her own

    I get drawn to the fire
    I'm older but I ain't getting wiser
    And I know I'm a liar
    But I'm searching for the truth
    All the years that I try and I try and I try
    But it always seems to be I go back to the girl that's crazy

    INSTRUMENTAL

    I get drawn to the fire

    But it always seems to be
    yeah it always seems to be
    yeah it always seems to be
    Always seem I go back to the girl that's crazy

    They say that girl is crazy
    And how she's cut from a different stone
    She like man and woman
    And she likes to leave em with their hearts torn

    Just A Wave, Not The Water

    thirst is not the answer, oceans come and go
    I loved her seven seas worth, Lord I loved her so
    she let me down so easy, one drop at a time
    ‌I would've killed myself but it made no sense
    committing suicide in self defense
    but I lost everything I brought her when she said baby

    She said baby you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water

    centuries ago living on the gold coast
    she was still in love with some long, gone ghost
    I was only trying to turn back the tide of her tears
    ‌I felt like an endless ocean, rolling through the fog
    full emotion drifting like a weather beaten log
    and I thought that I out thought her till she said baby

    When she said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
    She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
    Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo

    I said someday we'll love again and then you'll know the score
    I've taught you everything I know and maybe even more
    that's true she said, more than you ever will
    ‌I said I've been your raging river, precious African queen
    I've shown you everything that I've ever seen
    but she knew more than I had taught her when she said baby

    When she said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
    She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
    She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
    She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
    Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo

    Slow Dancing To A Fast Song

    slow walking in this fast town
    under jet planes LaGuardia bound
    trembling and I need a steady hand
    I still want to get you when you land
    I can get you on the line
    but that just ain't the same
    someone else is waiting at the baggage claim

    and I'm slow dancing to a fast song
    tempos picked up and moved on
    there's a rhythm and there’s a time to get on
    I'm slow dancing to a fast song

    out my window in the night time
    I look down at the street life and then up at the sky line
    and In the background I hear the T.V
    all these channels and nothing to see
    I'm going to take an N train to the city
    and pour some whisky
    down this whole in my heart

    and I'm slow dancing to a fast song
    tempos picked up and moved on
    there's a rhythm and there’s a time to get on
    I'm slow dancing to a fast song

    and I wonder what your wearing
    and the thoughts that you are sharing
    who you may be caring for now
    in that way that only you know how

    and I'm slow dancing to a fast song
    tempos picked up and moved on
    there's a rhythm and there’s a time to get on
    slow dancing to a fast song

    and I'm slow dancing to a fast song
    tempos picked up and moved on
    there's a rhythm and there’s a time to get on
    slow dancing to a fast song and I'm slow dancing to a fast song

    girl you got me slow walking in this fast town
    under jet planes LaGuardia bound

    Come Back Around

    you were the strong one
    you were like the sun pulled down real low, real low
    you were the only one
    ever really knew me at all, knew me at all
    and my heart is beating now
    you can hear some how

    Ain't no use in lying to each other
    Hurting one another
    We still got time we still long to discover
    We ain't so lost we can't be found
    I feel the tide rising up
    Our love come back around
    Now let your love come back around whoooo

    you were the hard one
    you wouldn't give to easy
    but when you did it came from inside
    and you fell like a landslide
    my heart is beating now
    you can hear some how

    Ain't no use in lying to each other
    Hurting one another
    We still got time we still long to discover
    We ain't so lost we can't be found
    I feel the tide rising up
    Our love come back around
    Now let your love come back around whoooo

    INSTRUMENTAL

    Ain't no use in lying to each other
    Hurting one another
    We still got time we still long to discover
    We ain't so lost we can't be found
    I feel the tide rising up
    We take off we touch down
    Now let your love come back around whoooo
    Let your love come back around whoooo
    Let your love come back around whoooo
    Let your love come back around whoooo

    So Alive

    A strong wind blew in from the west
    And so I headed east
    Drew my blade and I carved out my feast
    And then I built high fences and I dug deep trenches
    Bled myself until it dulled my senses
    But then the earth trembled and I trembled with it
    I felt powerless as plates beneath me shifted
    And I was calling out your name as my roots uplifted
    And from all that I've known in this world I was sifted
    And everything came out that was trapped inside
    And I swear to god I never felt so alive

    It took all I had but I headed west
    I pushed on till I had nothing left
    Just this blood in my veins and this heart in my chest
    And then I was surrounded by a nothingness
    My wounds healed and the air lay still
    And a melody went through me with that good chill
    With a high high and lows that shake me still
    Rising up from deep inside this void I fill
    I felt every cell in my body multiply
    And I swear to god I never felt so alive

    I burned all I owned and I headed south
    I went to far into find my way out
    And I was running on faith and then I was running on doubt
    I wanted water as thirst filled my mouth
    And then I was surrounded by a drunken sea
    I never been so scared I never felt so free
    And I've been searching for who am I supposed to be
    who am I supposed to be who am I supposed to be
    I came for truth but all I found was me
    I fell to my knees and then I laughed till I cried
    And I swear to god I never felt so alive

    Save Another

    When I was born I was nine months old
    Already to old to be doing as I was told
    And they put me in clothes and they sent me to school
    Where you learn how to learn life's essential tools
    And all these seasons keep passing us by
    Another summer just slipped out the corner of our eye
    Summer just slipped out the corner of our eye

    Is this the season my darling we begin to understand
    That if you want light and if you want laughter
    Then give that to someone else

    Save another and you save yourself
    Save another and you save yourself
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself

    You can move freely on the train but you can not get off
    And all the lines you've drawn you some day must cross
    And the world is with me wherever I go
    Lord you know l loved you so lord you know I loved you so

    But there's no savior here my darling
    We got to understand If you want love and if you want kindness
    Then give that to someone else

    Save another and you save yourself
    Save another and you save yourself
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself

    There's no savior here my darling don't let them fool you
    There's no savior here my darling and no time to waste
    And there ain't no heaven above only right here and now in this place
    And there ain't no heaven above only right here and now in this place
    Save yourself don't let them fool you

    Save another and you save yourself
    Save another and you save yourself
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself
    Save yourself
    Don't let them fool you
    Everything coming back to you
    Give what you want to someone else
    Save another and you save yourself
    Don't let them fool you
    Save another
    Everything coming back to you

    Another Drop of Rain

    I walked on forever
    I wore my feet out on this earth
    I don't know this fire that keeps me moving on
    But its been burning since my birth

    I have had thirst (2Xs)

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain

    And all these unanswered questions
    Its hard to tell just what their worth
    I've searched for the answers from book to book
    And I've drank down every verse

    I have had thirst (2Xs)

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain

    And people saying
    Keep your head above the water
    Keep your head above the water
    But you just going to dive right in (4xs)

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain

    And the animals cross the plain
    And lovers crying out their lover's name
    And the junkies fill their vein
    In search of another drop of rain (4Xs)

    Worth the Fall

    Help me to understand
    The woman think so different then the man
    The woman doing so much more then she can
    So much more then she can and more then she should
    To much said and misunderstood
    I took but just a moment to catch my breath
    You took all your pride and all your shoes and you left

    You're some where beneath heaven and above stone
    We ain't even talking on the telephone
    If we don't call and if that was it and this is all
    I still say the rise was worth the fall

    Conversation turning
    And then you get that look in your eye
    Lightning crashing through some clear blue sky
    The woman see color when there's nothing there
    She'll take you in and she'll take you where
    Where you want to stay but you can't remain
    You even looked pretty in the pouring rain

    You're some where beneath heaven and above stone
    We ain't even talking on the telephone
    But the moon and the ocean dance
    And we wake up every morning and we take our chances
    If we don't call and if that was it and this is all
    I still say that the rise was worth the fall

    If we have this and nothing more and time is on to us
    I give you back to you little parts I'll keep the parts that went too deep
    All and all the rise was worth it (2xs)
    I'll probably call but if that was it and this is all
    I still say that the rise was worth the fall

    If that was it and this is all
    I still say that the rise was worth the fall

    Help me to understand the women think so different then the man

    Fill My Glass

    I woke up this morning to the sounds of a bad song
    Lying there watching my alarm
    Thinking where have all the songwriters gone
    Music got trapped inside a ring tone music got trapped

    Fill my glass fill my glass give me something to make the night last
    Not forever like a photograph
    Just long enough for me to kiss the past good bye

    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your glass and I'll give you mine
    Tonight were going to have a good time
    Good times (2xs)

    And you give me no less and I ask for no more
    I ain't even been keeping track of the score
    What you even trying to win for
    Your first but your last in reverse your going to get there
    Ain't no use in trying to get there fast
    Get there but there ain't no use in trying to get there fast

    Fill my glass fill my glass sometimes you just got to let the storm pass
    Don't be a victim of your circumstance
    Sometimes you just got to let the storm pass

    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your glass and I'll give you mine
    Tonight were going to have a good time
    Good times (3xs)

    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your heart and I'll give you mine
    And baby tonight were going to have a good time
    And maybe the sun that shines only blinds your eyes
    And maybe the rain that falls is going to clear your mind
    And baby give me your glass and I'll give you mine
    Tonight were going to have a good time good times (4Xs)

    Bartender come fill my cup go on and fill me
    Tonight give me just the good stuff
    I'll let you know it when we had enough
    Tonight give me just the good stuff
    Fill my glass fill my glass
    Give me something to make the night last
    Not forever like a photograph
    Just long enough for me to kiss the past good bye

    Good bye

    Want Me Now

    Looking back now at the choices I've made
    The choices I've made the choices I've made
    Oh the ways that I've paid the ways that I've paid for the choices I've made
    Who's going to want me now

    Come on feed me lord don't give me just any chord
    I want the one thats all in I hear the ocean calling
    On and on for as long as Im able I lay my cards down on the table
    For one more hand do you want me now

    Looking back now at the choices I've made
    The choices I've made the choices I've made
    Oh the daemons I've slayed
    The daemons I've slayed for the choices I've made
    Who's going to want me now

    Come on heed me lord nobody loves you more
    You be the one that shines in to this frame my minds in
    Don't give me just any chord I want the one thats all in
    I hear the ocean calling
    And the rooms turning as the walls perspire
    And these voices sound like some devils choir
    Coming through my amplifier saying who's going to want you

    Who's going to want you now (2xs)

    All my senses all my instincts
    Ten thousand lives tonight I've lived ten thousand lies tonight
    Ten thousand lives tonight
    And its going to be a little while until that morning light
    Be a little while until that mornings light

    Who's going to want you now (3xs)

    Looking back now at the choices I've made
    The choices I've made the choices I've made
    Oh the ways that I've paid
    The ways that I've paid for the choices I've made
    Who's going to want me now

    You Are Alive

    They'll always be a reason to be sad
    you only need one to be glad you are alive
    And that sun light on your face
    came light years through space just to get to you
    The ones we’ve lost along the way they live through us today be alive

    Be amazed by what you’re seeing the city lights are screaming
    Your senses reeling and the changing of the season
    Everywhere you look there is something to believe in
    When you’re feeling beaten don’t forget to breathe in
    Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (2xs)

    They'll always be a reason to be hateful
    You only need one to be grateful you are alive
    And that wind upon your skin
    Has been circling this whole world just to get to you
    And no one knows tomorrow but today you are alive

    Be amazed by what you’re seeing a little baby sleeping
    Whose care is in your keeping they’ll soon be repeating
    Everything they see so be something to believe in
    When you get so mad your seething don’t forget to breathe in
    Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (2xs)

    Be amazed right now you’ve got blood racing through your veins
    Be amazed you are water yet you burn fire
    Now open up your eyes (4xs)

    Be amazed by what you’re seeing the city lights are screaming
    Your senses reeling and the changing of the season
    Everywhere you look there is something to believe in
    When you’re feeling beaten don’t stop dreaming
    Be amazed right now you’ve got blood racing through your veins
    You are something to believe in when you are feeling beaten
    Don’t forget to breathe in
    Close your eyes and just give thanks you are alive (3xs)
    Every morning that you wake give thanks
    Just give thanks you are alive

    Just Can't Last

    I was a rock when you found me but you leave me like sand
    I think the last piece just went and slipped through your hand
    And I sipped through your hand down through the cracks in the floor
    We don't feel it you don't like my music no more

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last
    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    I was like ice I feel like water
    I ain't my self it's like I'm spread out all over
    I was a man I feel like a child
    Always wanting what he don't instead of wanting what he has

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last
    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    I was a rock when you found me but you leave me like sand
    I think the last piece of me just slipped out your hand

    Too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    I was a man I feel like a child
    Always wanting what he don't instead of just wanting what he has

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last
    Too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    We went to high too soon too heavy too quick
    Ain't no use now girl we just too broke to fix
    Too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    We went too high too soon too strong too fast
    And that kind of loving just can't last

    It Will Be

    I got some tears for your eyes
    And a memory for your smile
    I want your freedom of mind
    You know that we can take our time
    And they'll be no want for trying
    You are the bed that I lie in
    Even though there's no denying my love

    But it all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    We got to light the way surely we can see
    That what ever we think it is girl surely it will be

    I got a feeling for this moment
    You're the inspiration on it
    In our hands is everywhere
    Only we can take us there

    It all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    We got to light the way surely we can see
    That what ever we think it is girl surely it will be

    INSTRUMENTAL

    It all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go

    It all comes down to one thing one thing we should know
    Wherever we think it's going surely it will go
    You know we got to light the way surely we can see
    What ever we think it is girl surely it will be

    Woman and Wife

    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    And the one says to the other you ain't staying all night
    I better not see you in the morning's light
    I better not see you in the morning light
    And they use to be the best of friends
    But now its a war and it has no end
    And then they start to gang up on me
    And Im hanging from the limb of a tall tall tree
    Cutting me up like a knife
    My woman and my wife

    If they were a card in a deck of cards they'd both be a ace
    I'd be the king caught in the middle just trying to save his face
    I though that two would mean twice as much
    But they cancel out each other and I get no touch
    I was born to love they were born to fight
    My woman and my wife

    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    My woman's got it bad with my wife
    And I think I've come to a point in my life
    Where I just want to sleep strait through the night
    And it was never perfect
    But there was a time I thought it was worth it
    But now Im not so sure my clothes on the floor
    I can't get either one to do for me no more
    Causing all this strife
    My woman and my wife

    If they were a card in a deck of cards they'd both be an ace
    I'd be the king trapped in his castle just trying to save his face
    I though that two would mean twice as much
    But they cancel out each other and I get no touch
    I was born to love they were born to fight
    My woman and my wife

    INSTRUMENTAL

    If they were a card in a deck of cards they'd both be a ace
    I'd be the king caught in the middle just trying to save his face
    I though that two would mean twice as much
    But they cancel out each other and I get no touch
    I was born to love they were born to fight
    My woman and my wife

    Cutting me up like a knife my woman and my wife
    Making pure hell of my life my woman and my wife

    Break No More Hearts

    You know I love the way your eyes look when your crying

    But your so much more beautiful when your smiling

    When your smiling feel like I just took off flying

    Higher than an airplane faster then you can say my name

    So sometimes I holler at you babe

    You counter and before too long

    The whole thing's come undone

    Don’t want to break no more hearts

    Don’t want to have my heart broken no more

    Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    We still got the feeling we still got the flow won’t be the fool that let you go

    Now you’re just putting on a show acting like a child
    You know anything you want you want come take it you want games why fake it

    You want war then lets just break it but if you want love still can make it

    So sometimes I holler at you baby
    You counter and before to long
    The whole things come undone


    Don’t want to break no more hearts
    
Don’t want to have my heart broken no more
    
Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    I lose my temper and I don’t know why
    
There’s nothing I can say that would justify
    
I lose my temper and I don’t know why

    Nothing I can say that would justify

    Don’t want to break no more hearts

    Don’t want to have my heart broken no more
    
Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    Don’t want to break no more hearts

    Don’t want to have my heart broken no more

    Too old to make a brand new start

    Gone too far just to let it fall apart

    Good Man Bad

    soaked in gasoline and your gaze is like a match
    show me what you mean Im tired of figuring out your pass word
    lying there like you some river winding through some dessert land
    passing me on by like Im just another grain of sand

    you make a good man want to get bad
    you make a poor man wish he had
    you could drive a sane man mad
    you could make a good man bad

    so many faces in this room but you’re the only one that matters
    and I know Im gonna only want you more with every moment
    here after standing there like you the only island amiss some raging sea
    keeping me at bay like Im some water on the levy

    you make a good man want to get bad
    you make a poor man wish he had
    you could drive a sane man mad
    you could make a good man bad
    you make a good man want to get bad
    you make a poor man wish he had
    you could drive a sane man mad
    you could make a good man bad

    Love Come Quick

    my hearts a desert island
    going to take some finding
    but its hear and its ready to go
    coming to you from somewhere in the deep blue
    trying so hard now to make it through this universe
    somewhere there's got to be the first
    got water all around but I'm dying of thirst

    Oh baby Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along

    my loves an untold story
    I want some blood and glory
    I been searching now ever since my mama bore me
    come to me straight babe shoot from the hip
    don't you come any closer if your going to give me the slip
    your lip a fingertip i wont let you drip
    reach out your hand darling give me a sip

    Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along

    I got my tongue gets all twisted in my mouth
    words trying to get out
    my tongue gets all twisted in my mouth
    but sometimes you just got to shout...LOVE........

    Oh baby Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along
    Love come quick
    Don't you trip as your walking through my door
    Love be strong
    Lift me up now child and carry me along

    Just a Game (Better Played & Lost)

    Love is just a game of tag and your it
    the planets turn and the balance shifts in my direction
    now your vying for some of my attention
    its all part of the natural selection

    Love is just a game babe
    You’re never going to win
    You can drowned in your tears like a little child
    But you better just keep on swimming
    You might feel some pain.....but its still a Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost

    Love is just a game of tag and Im it
    the planets move and the balance shifts in your direction
    now Im needing some of your affection
    the rule and not the exception....is that

    Love is just a game babe
    You’re never going to win
    You can hide away your heart if you want to
    But I say just keep on giving
    You might feel some pain.....but its still a
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost

    And it don’t matter if you win or lose....what it comes down to
    Is you gonna lose even if you win....cause the game of love is played within

    Love is just a game babe
    You’re never going to win
    Stand on the side lines if you want to
    But I say just keep on living
    You might feel some pain.....but its still a
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost

    Baby be still so I can kiss you...in the end I know im only going to miss you...I miss you baby
    Baby be still so I can kiss you...in the end I know im only going to miss you...I miss you baby
    Game better played and lost... Never going to win you know you can never......
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost
    Game better played and lost
    Then never played at all...............!

    Only Human

    Whirl wind swirling round my brain again
    Don’t think I’ll ever be the way I’ve been
    Since you’ve been around
    The heat wave my mind is just your bodies slave
    Since you’ve been spinning me round and round and round

    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human after all

    Freight train racing through my veins again
    Don’t think I’ll ever be the way I’ve been
    Since you’ve been around
    The freak show I just take the punches blow by blow since you’ve been laying me down and down and down

    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human after all

    I’ve always been waiting for the moment to pass
    Clutching my fingertips in my grasp
    Sitting on my ass
    But I can do all I say and say all I do but when its all been said and done

    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human(4X)

    I'm just as Human as a man can be..........
    I'm only(2X)
    I'm only(2X)
    I'm only Human
    I'm only Human
    When its all been said and done, I'm only Human

    Man & Woman You & Me

    Long before the world began
    It was just you and me women and man
    And before the things you think you see
    It was just a man and a women you and me

    Wont give up on you
    I wont give up on you
    I wont give up how could I just give you up

    Long before the world began
    There wasn’t anything I needed I couldn’t hold right in the palm of my hand
    And before the things you think you need to be
    It was just a man and a women you and me man and a women you and me

    Wont give up on you
    I wont give up on you
    I wont give up how could I just give you up
    Wont give up on you
    I wont give up on you
    I wont give up how could I just give you up

    And when all this has come to pass
    And that final grain of sand has just slipped through the hour glass
    And the land gets swallowed up by the sea
    There’s going to be a man & women(3X)
    Man and women you and me YOU AND ME(2X)

    Won’t give up on you
    Won’t give up on you
    I don’t want you to
    Wont’ give up on you
    Won’t give up on you
    Won’t give up on you
    Won’t give up on you

    Long before the world began
    There was a time when
    We didn’t need anything more then
    Each other women and man
    But as far as I can see It will always be
    Man and women you and me
    Man and women you and me

    sorry I don’t
    I say I will when I know that I won’t
    sorry for love
    sorry for pain
    but there ain’t one without the other they just one and the same

    sorry I condemn

    I like your friends but Im more comfortable alone
    sorry for this
    sorry for that
    but my head ain’t one size fits all for all your different size hats

    I isn’t what you is and I ain’t what they are
    And darling I don’t think were going to get very far now

    Im just moving slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    moving slow towards love cause true love is worth the wait

    sorry for pity
    sorry for pride
    I keep my emotions all locked up inside
    sorry Im loose
    sorry Im tight
    sometimes I when I don’t want to and then I can’t when I try

    I isn’t what you is and I ain’t what they are
    And darling I don’t think were going to get very far now

    Im just moving slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    moving slow towards love cause true love is worth the wait

    sorry I do
    sorry I don’t
    I say I will when I know that I won’t
    sorry for yes
    sorry for no
    but the floors been growing higher and the ceiling look low

    I isn’t what you is and I ain’t what they are
    And darling I don’t think were going to get very far now

    Im just moving slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    slow like the wheels of a steam locomotive train
    moving slow towards love cause true love is worth the wait

    I Cry For You

    lying all alone holding the phone
    like it’s a baby talking to myself
    ain’t talking to no one else but my baby
    and I don’t know why I should cry for you

    summer turns to fall I haven’t moved at all
    Im so damn lazy don’t even recognize myself
    acting like someone else I must be crazy
    and I don’t know why I should cry for you....but I do

    waiting by the door don’t know what Im waiting for
    just thought maybe’ you’d be coming back
    back to your senses baby
    and I don’t know why I should cry

    you never cooked a single meal
    you never asked me how I feel
    but your were oh oh so real
    you were oh so real so real
    and I don’t know why I should cry for you.......
    but I do yeah I do...........!
    I cry for you

    Good To Be In Love

    two hearts beating together
    two mouths saying words like forever
    two bodies that get like one just as soon as that working day gets done
    And it started with lust but now its beyond that no turning back

    it feels so good to be in love again
    it had been so long since I could let one in
    darling were you been all this time time without you
    good to be in love
    to have someone that cant stop thinking of
    for the first time in a long time Im seeing

    two minds of a similar thought
    I tried to slip by but my heart got caught on to you lover
    two people one to each other
    and it started by chance a casual encounter
    but then the more I saw the more I wanted her

    it feels so good to be in love again
    it had been so long since I could let one in
    darling were you been all this time time without you
    good to be in love
    to have someone that cant stop thinking of
    for the first time in a long time Im seeing

    you with a smile cross your face
    leaving your mark all over my space
    we gonna shed our share of tears
    knows I can be a hard man to please
    I get hung up on things that don’t really matter
    but then you give me light and then you give me laughter
    darling where you been

    good to be in love again
    it feels so good to be in love again
    it had been so long since I could let one in
    darling were you been all this time time without you
    good to be in love
    to have someone that cant stop thinking of
    for the first time in a long time Im seeing ain’t it
    good to be in love ain’t it
    good to be in love ain’t it
    good to be in love ain’t it
    good to be in love

    Hand Over Your Heart

    say you’ll stay with me tonight and for tonight I’ll be alright
    if I could see you smile I’d be ok for a while

    hand over your heart now baby and then we’ll come
    speaking of love now baby lets make some
    why don’t we make some

    say you’ll stay with me today and for today I’ll be ok
    if I could look in your eyes I’d be alright for a time

    hand over your heart now baby and then we’ll come
    speaking of love now baby lets make some
    why don’t we make some

    And in the morning when we rise
    Like the new day I greet you
    Before we say our good byes
    Why don’t we just give it a run through

    hand over your heart and then we’ll come
    speaking of children now baby lets make some
    hand over your heart your warmer then the sun
    speaking of love now baby why don’t we make some
    tell me why.....don’t we make some

    And if its only for a while
    And if its only for a while
    A while better than no time at all
    And if its only for a while
    And if its only for a while
    A while better than no time at all

    I won’t lie...I won’t cheat...I’ll be the hand that feeds you, that thing you need...
    I won’t...I won’t ..I won’t hurt you baby
    you just got to hold on to me

    And if its only for a while
    And if its only for a while
    A while’s still better than no time at all

Music drawing heavily from blues, soul and rock influences. Music written with care and thought, but is still primal and intuitive. Music that won't make you want to dance, but will make you want to move. Give a listen, you will like what you hear

    Come Will What May

    turn the wheel tell me do you like it
    like that could you tell me how that makes you feel
    we’ve got to break your stance
    cause there is a time to be still and there is a time to dance

    Come on come on come will what may
    Well fit the pieces on our way
    Come on come on come will what may
    I thought I heard you say

    switch the track tell me does that make you burn
    does it mean there is no turning back
    we’ve got to hold down this groove
    there is a time to be still and there is a time to move

    Come on come on come will what may
    We can fill in the blanks along the way
    Come on come on come will what may
    I hought I heard you say

    Oh now we can break this wall
    Im tired of watching this bouncing ball
    There’s a time to climb
    but sometimes you go higher if you just let yourself fall

    Come on baby Come on Come on
    Come on Come on come on come will what may
    Well light the candles on our way
    Come on come on come will what may
    I thought I heard you say
    Come on come on come will what may
    What do they know anyway
    Come on come on come will what may
    I thought I heard you say

    Heavy

    I should be lying were your lying
    giving thanks to the up above with heaven by my side
    and we could make our bed into an ocean dive into the deep blue sea
    and look up to see the sunlight fading
    and as we went deeper we’d hold onto each other
    and put the full weight of love on the other

    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy Yes I do
    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy I want to fall right through

    I should be walking were your walking
    through some carnival with rides and candy and freak shows
    and we could take a ride on roller coaster up into the big blue sky
    look down and see how crazy this world is
    and as we went higher we’d hold onto each other
    and put the full weight of our love on the other

    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy Yes I do
    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy I want to fall right through

    Give me your hand
    Give me your heart to
    I want your everything until then anything will do
    Just give me something I can hold on to

    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy
    Heavy with you
    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy
    I want to fall right through

    Heaven & Hollywood

    I loved a woman and she loved me back
    She said I love you and that’s a fact
    but like all good things it came to an end
    and since that’s happened its since happened again

    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    I’ve been every where in between
    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    You been round long enough and you’ll know what I mean

    stood on the mountain king of the hill
    first to the top but always fresh from the kill
    it’s a kick in the face and a spit in the eye
    living on the edge dying to fly

    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    I’ve been every where in between
    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    You been round long enough and you’ll know what I mean

    picked an apple from a tree took a bite and the world
    came crashing down on me
    here it comes and there it goes
    and where it winds up really nobody knows
    filled my pockets and shined my shoes
    so many choices don’t know which one to choose
    watching the clock so I’ll know when the time is right
    blowing it all out on a Saturday night

    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    I’ve been every where in between
    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    You been round long enough and you’ll know what I mean

    Seree

    look upon a morning star
    always know where you are
    sleep beneath a fading moon
    tomorrow always comes to soon
    and the change always comes like this
    lightly in my palm and heavy in my fist
    run my hands through the air
    and feel my fingers through your hair

    Seree

    Looking upon a setting sun
    light most brilliant now in its final run
    gaze beneath a rolling sky
    always rolling the clouds walk across my eye
    water always flows like this
    knees on the shore current on my lips
    lay me down now in the sand and feel my weight upon your hand

    Seree

    Look upon a bird in flight
    if you can feel the wind then you can catch the light
    Lean against a changing tree
    always changing the leaves rise above my knee
    Seasons come and go like this
    steady comes the fall
    the wind carries off my kiss
    watch the water as it turns to ice
    and see my reflection in your eyes

    Seree

    Took All of Me

    in our room and on our bed
    theres still an imprint on the pillow from where you laid your head
    take my fear take my pride take everything I kept on the inside
    take my love take my hate take it all and say its not to late
    didn’t your mama teach you to only take what you need

    You took all of me
    You took everything
    And there ain’t nothing left
    You took all of me
    You took everything and im just an empty space

    out our house and in our car driving to anywhere
    as long any where is far take my joy take my pain take it all and lets do it again

    You took all of me
    You took everything and im just an empty space
    You took all of me
    You took everything
    And there ain’t nothing left

    Didn’t your mama teach you to finish what you start
    Didn’t your mama teach you
    Not to play with a mans heart
    Didn’t your mama teach you

    You took all of me
    You took everything
    And there ain’t nothing left
    You took all of me
    You took everything and im just an empty space

    I Can Fly

    give it to me real I want to feel
    reach my hands out and set aside
    all this doubt ain’t no mountain side that I cant climb
    got to bring all my powers together cause its know or never

    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly I can fly way up to the sky I can fly

    don’t want to take it slow
    I’ve got to go towards that vision
    no time for indecision
    ain’t no stretch of land that I can’t cross
    I’ve just got to loss my mind cross that line

    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky

    Don’t want to wait until I die
    I only need to try
    One step and then another
    There ain’t no way other

    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky

    Need Your Love

    I put my foot into the water
    and then I was a thousand miles from shore
    I tried t fight the current
    but it only made me want you even more
    so now im just laying down my pride
    waving my arms up in the air
    like some abandoned cast away firing up a flair

    I need your love
    Like a baby needs a mamas care
    I need your love in a way that’s more then I can bare
    I need your love
    Got to have your love

    I looked into your eyes and it all came shining through
    and I was lost in your existence since long before I knew
    I just got to make you understand
    Im just trying to make it clear
    Im gonna move a little closer now and whisper in your ear

    I need your love
    and there’s no one left to blame
    I just need your love don’t want to ever be the same
    I need your love
    Every evening needs the come of dawn
    I need your love
    Just to carry on

    and I don’t know if Im right or wrong or
    weather this makes me weak or strong

    I need your love like a baby needs a mamas care
    I need your love
    Its more them I can bare
    I need your love
    and these nothing left to say
    I just need your love and there ain’t no other way
    I need your love
    got to have your love

    Carry On

    don’t look at me like that
    you’re the one that’s packing
    gathering up your things
    telling me how Im lacking
    oh my sweet angel not again

    Carry on sweet angel
    Carry on

    smoking your last cigarette
    looking like your dying
    you can take it anymore
    you say that I ain’t trying
    oh my sweet angel not again

    Carry on sweet angel
    While your still willing and able
    Carry on

    Father time you must have gone and lost your mind
    If you thought that I was ready to move it on down the line

    Carry on sweet angel
    While your still willing and able
    Carry on sweet lover
    You know that there will be another
    Carry on

    See You Standing

    the conductor says your leaving in less then half of an hour
    and its all the more dramatic and your all the beautiful in this rain shower
    Im trying to act like Im the one hear with the power
    conductor says your leaving in less then half of an hour

    I can still see you standing there
    Your trying to act like you don’t really care
    look at me Im so damn lazay fair
    I can still see you standing there

    your rolling on now on your padded sit
    I wonder if there going to give you a little bit of food to eat
    I bet your trying to find a comfy place to rest your feet
    rolling on now on your padded sit

    I can still see you standing there
    ur trying to act like you don’t really care
    look at me Im so damn debonair
    I can still see you standing there

    And its been many a year
    And I have shed many a tear
    And many a time have I replayed
    It all while staring down into a beer

    I can still see you standing there
    I can still see you standing there
    I can still see you standing there
    I can still see you standing

    Closer to Hell

    I was raised from town to town
    we stayed just long enough for my daddy to take one down
    Id drop my fishing line in a river and never get to real it up
    Id cast my star on some pretty young thing
    and never get to fill my cup
    when I was young my daddy said

    If you want to learn how to use a gun son
    then you better learn boy how to run
    no time to be staring down the shaft of a wishing well
    you stand still and stand closer to hell

    these men that I ride with
    I wouldn’t call any one of them my brother
    Id shoot anyone or all of them down
    just like I would any other
    I’ve had women from all across this land
    never once was I taken to ask one for their hand

    If you want to learn how to use a gun son
    then you better learn boy how to run
    no time to be staring down the shaft of a wishing well
    you stand still and stand closer to hell

    I ain’t scared of no hang man
    Im not frightened by no galos pole
    that ain’t the reason Im so long gone
    so long before the bodies get cold
    I remember the fear in my daddies voice
    the moment before he fell
    he said I ain’t afraid of dying so much
    as I am of dying and going to hell

    If you want to learn how to use a gun son
    then you better learn boy how to run
    no time to be staring down the shaft of a wishing well
    you stand still and stand closer to hell
