RIDE THROUGH THE NIGHT

Space expanding

Space expanding 

Ride through the night until the day

Ride through the night now you’re on your way

Ride through the night the hour’s getting late

Until you find your way back home

Keep running but you know you can’t run away

Can’t fight it but you’ll live to fight another day

Keep going but you never want to go astray

Because now you’re on your own

Ride through the night until the day

Ride through the night now you’re on your way

Ride through the night the hour’s getting late

Until you find your way back home

Space expanding

Space expanding 

Space expanding

Space expanding 

Ride through the night until the day

Ride through the night now you’re on your way

Ride through the night the hour’s getting late

Until you find your way back home


Win Some, Lose Some

I’m sticking to my story

Back when I was young my dad he told me something

He said “listen up and I’ll tell you what,

It’s not that hard to be happy when the day is done,

I’m only gonna say it once:

You win some you lose some, it’s just the way it goes, son”

I wanted to discover what kind of man I was

But I met some crazy mama with a smoking gun

And I got stung

But I still love New York City in the morning sun 

And I love the sky above

You win some you lose some, it’s just the way it goes, son

You win some you lose some, it’s just the way it goes, son

Wait a minute, wait a minute now, I’m in it to win it

Wait a minute now, better get in it

You win some, you win some, you lose some

You win some, you win some, you lose some too

You win some, you win some, you lose some

You win some, you win some, you lose some too


Imaginary Lines

Went searching for myself to find the curious fruit upon the vine,

Walked in the woods the stars were bright and near  

I chanced upon her with no sound she led me deeper through strange ground,

Poured a glass, i drank it down and all was clear

Just imagine my surprise, this was no dream i realized

I felt the air was rising underneath

I turned and asked how can this be, she said that here’s no gravity,

Relax and soon you will be floating free

The rules don’t apply, here the rules don’t apply

You can do what you want the rules don’t apply

When I awoke I was through a door, the only thing I knew for sure

Was I was different than before i stayed

The edge was blurred on reality, the forms had merged, tension released

Only out of chaos can order be made          

Just imagine my surprise, innocence is in the eyes

When a soul with a soul entwines

We hear the consequence of rhyme distort the melting clocks of time

as we cross imaginary lines

The rules don’t apply, here the rules don’t apply

We can do what we want the rules don’t apply

And if the rules don’t apply then the rules don’t apply

You can do what you want here on the other side

Then all i knew became reversed spring to winter seasons turned

Rivers ran up mountainsides and rain returned to the sky

And all the while my senses burned, it was just a glimpse into the world

Unknowable to ever learn just like the heart of the girl

The rules don’t apply, she can do what she wants

The rules don’t apply

No the rules don’t apply, the rules don’t apply

We can do what we want


Barometric Pressure (Here comes The Rain)

It’s building up

Tension’s higher than it was before

We’re holding on

Under all the pressure mount some more

It’s breaking up

You can see a crack in the support

The air has changed here comes the rain

It’s happening

When the shadows over us increase

Let it begin

And there is no end without release

The air has changed here comes the rain, the rain

We’re holding on

‘Till the storm has come and passed and gone

I’m not as strong

I need you standing there and latching on

The air has changed here comes the rain, the rain

the rain


IDYLLWILD FLOWER

In my dreams in the night I will see you by and by

And in the flash of the morning light I’ve got my heart’s delight

Oh you would see if you open your mind something rare to find

My Idyllwild flower, Idllywild flower, My Idyllwild flower, Idyllwild flower sing my song

Beat by the rain, kissed by the sun, in the whole world there’s just one

‘Cause I’ve looked far, I’ve looked wide, high upon the mountainside

And underneath the open sky is the only place I find

My Idyllwild flower, Idllywild flower, my Idyllwild flower, Idyllwild flower sing my song

You’ve got to hold on for me right now

My feet can’t seem to find the ground

Little darlin,’ darlin’ please take me with you when you leave

It feels like we could open the floodgates and set the river free

My Idyllwild flower, Idllywild flower, My Idyllwild flower, Idyllwild flower sing my song


On the Grind

The good lord willing I’ll see you when I do

There’s just a few things that I hold to be true

I’m a man of conviction but I need something I can understand

So I keep it simple, I’m a peaceful loving man

I’m on the grind holding steady

I’m steady on all night long

I’m on the grind holding steady I’m steady on all night long

History is by the winners

That’s something that all “great men” knew

There’s no sleep for the sinners 

So tell me has your heart been true

I’m like rolling thunder coming out of the clear blue sky

So if you want to know what time it is you can set your watch to mine

I’m on the grind holding steady

I’m steady on all night long

I’m on the grind holding steady I’m steady on all night long

Well is it tragedy or comedy

Well I’m gonna let you decide

I got to keep on keep on keep on whether I be wrong or right

I’m on the grind holding steady

I’m steady on all night long

I’m on the grind holding steady

I’m steady on all night long


My Heart (Time Lapse)

I’m a windowpane in the spring rain

You’re a radio with nowhere to go

And when the stars at night reach us with distant light

Born from another life I know

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart’s

Steady like a strum, wondering what’s to come

I’m an old guitar waiting in the dark

You can pick me up or keep me for good luck

And you’re the melody that will come back to me

Freed from my memory that was

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart’s

Locked in like a drum, counting time from one

Constant as the sun, ready here it comes

I’m the city skyline as the clouds go by

You’re the days that pass in time lapse

The cars keep coming in waves, speed up until they make

An electric bouquet, so fast

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart’s

Steady like a strum, wondering what’s to come

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart

My heart my heart my heart my heart my heart’s

Feels like new again more than it’s ever been

I don’t want it to end


Feel Like Moving

Feel like moving yes I do I feel like moving feel and it’s true

It would be better if I knew you feel like moving too

Today has been such a long sad day and my mind is a million miles away

We’re passing towns and waiting for night in the midnight hour under the hot city lights

From the east coast I was bound on the southside of some New England town, across the Rockies mama look around for me

 

Stopped to grease these broken wheels so far from home you can’t know how it feels

When we hit trouble find out who’s our friend need some help who’s got some to lend

Feel like moving and it’s true if you’ll be starting something new 

Just remember you can’t lose what you never had

 

Once in a while thinking it’s all right, then sometimes think I might lose my mind

If it’s wild you’ve got a heart like mine and our kind don’t stay still too long

 

So let’s get down I’ll hold on tight, we’ll keep on going till the broad daylight

It’s like the best thing I ever saw when I find my sweet cherry ball

Feel like moving this is the one I’ve been waiting this will be fun

Now we’re coming and I wonder if you feel like moving too

 

Some got queens and some got kings, I’ve got aces and that’s the best thing

Open my eyes at the crack of noon now I’m going away but I’ll be back soon

My girl Elsie where did she go she loved me fast and left me just as slow

She’s the sweetest girl I know oh won’t you come back to me

 

We come coasting into town on fumes, my coat is torn I’ve got the hard road blues

It not easy always saying goodbye sometimes I want to sit down and cry

 

Once in a while thinking it’s all right, then sometimes think I might lose my mind

If it’s wild you’ve got a heart like mine and our kind don’t stay still too long

I feel like moving it takes it’s toll but there’s no stopping when you’re on a roll sometimes I’ve got to shake my soul until I feel like moving on, on


Ballad of Wiley Jones

Wiley Jones was a friend of mine 

Passed this way from time to time

He said, “I love my life and I don’t want to die

But I’d lay it on the line for any friend of mine”

You can open any door if you’ve got the key

He said, “a friend in need is a friend indeed,

Better look before you leap, the best things in life are free

If you do you’re gonna see you’ve got everything you need”

Wiley never had too much to give

But he’ll give you all he’s got that’s just how he lives

He said, “I’m going with the flow ’cause like the caged bird I know

You take what you love the most and let it go”

He sang all day and he played all night

But lightning never strikes in the same place twice

Better late than never when the road goes on forever

It’s any port in stormy weather

Wiley Jones was a friend of mine 

Passed this way from time to time

He said, “I love my life and I don’t want to die

But I’d lay it on the line for any friend mine,

Any friend of mine.”

He was a friend of mine,

Was a good friend of mine


Nothing New Under the Sun

After talking to you i could see we’re on the level

We stood in a daze but knew what time it was

The same could be said for when my hair was dishevelled

And I woke up in the bed and I didn’t know what time it was

Well that’s the way it will be and the way it’s always been

It’s the story of love and when it’s done it’s done

You see it happened before and it will happen again

You can call it deja vu but there’s nothing new under the sun

Well they burned to the ground all the cities in sight 

And mobilized entire nations

They launched a thousand ships with a sacrifice

Watched the fall and decline of a civilization

Yes history repeats and i don’t know when 

But one day there’s a flood that’s gonna come

if it happened before it will happen again

Only feels like deja vu ‘cause there’s nothing new under the sun

Under the sun, the sun

There’s nothing new under the sun, under the sun

There’s nothing new under the sun, under the sun

Under the sun


Mama’s Got a Lot of Love

Shake me rattle me roll me rock me 

Hold me in your arms and don’t ever stop

I don’t know but why not show me, ain’t that a lot of love,

Ain’t that a lot of love

 

I’ve been waiting, over-staying, stuck in the middle, hesitating

Now something new is coming through you like angels singing hallelujah

Shake me rattle me roll me rock me 

Hold me in your arms and don’t ever stop

I don’t know but why not show me, ain’t that a lot of love,

Ain’t that a lot of love

 

You can’t go wrong with what’s a little stronger, it’s gonna be just a bit longer

I see what’s coming, I’ve been strumming all night long then I come running

Shake me rattle me roll me rock me 

Hold me in your arms and don’t ever stop

I’ve got nothing now you give me something ain’t that a lot of love,

Mama’s got a lot of love

 

Now my clothes are torn but baby you’re warm and your love feels just like a storm

And now it’s snowing, wind is blowing past the dawn and it’s still going

 Shake me rattle me roll me rock me 

Hold me in your arms and don’t ever stop

I don’t know but why not show me, ain’t that a lot of love,

Ain’t that a lot of love

 

No it won’t wane it hits me like an airplane speeding off down the runway

I  understand you’ll take my hand and show me the lights when I come in for a landing

Shake me rattle me roll me rock me 

Hold me in your arms and don’t ever stop

I’ve got nothing now you give me something ain’t that a lot of love,

Mama’s got a lot of love

Mama’s got a lot of love


Falling Backwards Through Time 

Falling backwards through time

Lost yourself in these faces going by

Falling backwards through time 

‘Till I’m just a spark in an eye

Go on get up pick yourself off the ground you got to look around

Gather up what it is you found you can never tell which way you’re bound

The night has come, now we got a way to go play it on the radio

Cross the country take it slow you want to stop and see the sights cause you never know

Falling backwards through time

Lost yourself in these faces going by

Falling backwards through time 

‘Till there’s nothing but an empty sunrise

I see you there we’re packing up the car this time we’re going far

The back of my memory is where you are just following your lucky star

Along the way I wonder where it started from and what is to come

A sailing boat in the setting sun soon will be gone when the day is done

Falling backwards through time

Lost yourself in these faces going by

Falling backwards through time 

‘Till there’s nothing but an empty sunrise

Rewind everybody, rewind

Rewind, everybody rewind

Rewind, everybody rewind

Rewind, everybody rewind
