UNTIL THEN

 

Until then
She’ll wrap the left overs carefully
And lock them away
Behind cold doors
Until then
She’ll wipe the snow
From her bedroom window sill
And watch as it floats
Gently to the ground
Until then
She’ll smile at the new comers
And remember
The floor needs to be swept again
Before she goes home tonight
Until then
She’ll spend her minimum wage a thousand ways in her mind
Then remember the bills
That she’s behind
‘Till then
Until then
Until then
Solo
‘Till then
She’ll fill her glass with coffee
And let the warmth flow
Through her lonely heart
Until then
She’ll polish her shoes just the way her dad showed her
In a hope that she’ll see
His love reflect in them
Until then
Until then
She’s thinking of her man
Two seasons ‘cross the ocean
War torn love left behind
And how she needs to feel his warm embrace again
Until then
Until then
There’s somethin in the way she wears the clip in her long black hair

RUBY

I remember ruby roses
bouquet of dandelions
driftwood
shaped by waves
And the way we’d sway
in the still of August
aligned with the moon
stars shown
over the water
and we’d listen
to everything
My view is clear tonight
I need us to happen again
been walkin these parts
but alone
I can’t hold you
alone
I can’t talk to you
I still hear
cracks of thunder
and that last gush of rain
drips from my face
My view is clear tonight
I need us to happen again
walking these parts
alone
I can’t hold you
alone
I can’t talk with you
I’ll leave this light on
so you can see that my
door is open
tonight
I’ll say I’m sorry
and kiss your wounds
My view is clear tonight
I need us to happen again
playing both parts
alone
I can’t hold you
alone I can’t talk to you
Come on home
Come on home

AMERICA

 

Got a raise today
I’m expecting a bonus next week
I work hard All day Stacking boxes
Wrapping them in cellophane
Fork Lifting them into eighteen wheelers
I ship ‘em off To I don’t know where
I keep my head down
I keep my chin up
I keep it goin
Its America
Got a woman I love
She cuts hair ‘Round the corner
From our first apartment
She works had all day
And on the weekend
We walk to the beach
One hand in hers
The other holding a coffee
Not sure where it’s all going to lead
I keep my head down
Chin up
I keep it goin
America Got our health
My pension
And my 401 k
In America
America
Yaaaaaa
In America
We’re keepin it goin
In America
And on Tuesday nights we go down to the jolly clean giant
Do my laundry there
While my cloths are cleaning
I take my guitar
I play for a tips
My hands get cold
But I need the twenty bucks
I keep my head down
Chin up
That’s how it goes
In America
That’s how it goes in America
That’s how it goes
In America
I hope I don’t have to be doin this forever
Not sure I can keep it up
Dreamin' the American dream
Keep my head up
Tryin to make the bigs bucks
They’re going to give me a raise
America
America
America
America

I'LL SHARE MY LIFE

I'm feelin ready
and you are too
Ready to make promises come true
there will be rains
there will be sunshine
there will be rhythms
and rhymes
you hold me right
so I'm ready to try
starting tonight
I'll share my life
I'll share my life
I'll share my life with you
It ain't always easy
life has it's blues
But I'm feelin real and strong with you
there will be rights
there will be wrongs
there will be silence and songs
you hold me right
so I'm ready to fly
starting tonight
I'll share my life
I'll share life
I'll share my life with you
there will be rains
there will be sunshine

I GET ALONG WELL

 

Lately I’ve been thinking things through
That Leads my mind back to you
I thought when we ended
My life was suspended
Now I know the truth I see things real different
Got in with livin
Bright lights where there used to be blues
After all of that crying
I’m realizin'
I get on real well without you
I get on well
I get on well
I get on well without you
After all the Lyin’
I’m realizin’
I get in real well without you
All that’s behind me now
That’s what they say
After all the Lyin’
I’m realizin’
I get on well without you I get on well

I THINK OF YOU

 

I would walk the streets late at night
Sometimes dreams can be cold and lonely
I was lost
Now I’m found
I met you
You know it’s true
We’ll see it through
Me and you
I would sit by my candles light
That’s all I had to warm be
Thinks we’re dark
They’ve turned to light
It’s you
You know it’s true
We’ll see it through me and you
And I think if you
I think of you
All through the day
You know I do
Think of you
Sometimes I’m troubled
‘Bout how I feel inside
Sometimes I can see no clearer
In dawns morning light
Mist disappears from site
Cause when I’m with you
The juices start to flow
And I think if you
I think of you
All through my day
You know I do
Think of you In the morning light
I think of you
When I go to sleep at night
I think of you
You know I think of you

NORTHERN LIGHTS

 

Northern lights
Shine through me
Wild and free
Shine through me
Northern wind
Blow through me
Wild and free
Blow through me
Don’t know where I’m goin’
Don’t understand me here I’ve been
If you embrace me
I’ll find my way back home again
Solo
Don’t know where I’m goin’
Don’t understand where I’ve been
If you could embrace me
I’ll find my way home again
I’m going to find my way home again
You know
I’m going to find My way home

DON'T WALK BACK

 

Don’t be thinkin of me
You had that chance before
Don’t be thinking of me I’m not there for you
Anymore All those words we used to say
They had meaning
To me yesterday
But I guess they just kind of slipped any
Don’t walk back I’m gone
Don’t be buy’n me any stuff I don’t need that anymore
Don’t you be buyin me stuff
Enough is enough
You think I’d care after all we’ed been through
But when I’m dreamin
I don’t dream of you and there’s nothin’
Either of us can do
Don’t walk back I’m gone
You real we’re the one
Solo
You think I’d care after all we’d been through
But when I’m dreamin I don’t dream of you
And there’s nothin either of us can do
Don’t walk back I’m gone
Don’t walk back
Don’t walk back
I’m gone

BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY

 

Before you leave today
You’ll stop by the garden
and breath in all the yellows and greens
tell us we’re pretty
we brighten the city
the best you’ve ever seen
before you leave today
you’ll ask how we’re doin’
hopin’ we’re ok
and weathering all storms
You’ll have turned down our beds
and found another blanket
that together with your smile
will keep us warm
‘cause that’s just who you are mom
a gently hand that pulls music from guitars mom
a strong heart
to encourage things to be
find simple tunes
and set them free
In the days ahead
when we need to reach out for ya
we won’t pine to some distant star
we’ll look in our gardens
at the yellows, reds and greens
flowers you’ve planted
deep
in who we are
mom

WASH GENTLY OVER ME

 

Here I stand
beside your shore
I need to feel your dreams
I need to ride
the sound of Your waves
and let them wash gently over me
I bow to Your knowledge
and the seasons as they spin by
still I wonder if you feel
one as small as I
I’ve felt the bite of
your north winds burning
drive for the south
closed my eyes when sun lit sparks
have flown from your mouth
yes I’ve known your furry
Your waves grind granite to sand
still I’m here
at your shore
waiting for your hand
When I thirst you in
and there’s nothin’,
there’s nothin’
left to say
I’ll be here at Your shore
ready to wade in
I’ll let Your ancient dreams
forever wash gently over me.

WHY CAN'T I LOVE YOU

 

Why
Why can’t I love you
The way you
Need me to do
And how
Can we go on
Until we understand that simple truth
All I ever needed
Was to be with you
Hold you, love you, always be true
Why
Can’t I love you
The way you need me to do
You know I tried
You know
All I did was cry and cry
Why Can’t I love you
The way you need me to do
Solo
Why Can’t I love you The way you need me to do
