Romance 

 

Over and over 

Like crimson and clover

Got that California dreaming vibe

Ventura style

Surfer boy smile

If you give me a ticket to ride

I’ll bring some romance 

Into your life

I’ll make you feel real good inside.

Ba ba ba da da

 

Eight miles high 

Touching the sky 

Getting better all the time

Chapel bells chime

At Sunset and Vine 

If you’ll be my baby tonight

I’ll bring some romance 

Into your life

I’ll make you feel real good inside

Ba ba ba da da

 

Sugar sugar in the dawn

You keep me hanging on

Honey honey in the night

Feeling alright, feeling alright

 

Romance into your life

I’ll make you feel real good inside 

Ba ba ba da da

Ba ba ba da da…

 

 

You Don’t Know) Much About Me

 

You’re pulling me close

While you’re cutting me loose

You’re kissing my throat

While you’re tying the noose

You expect me to stay

Just where you want me to be

You don’t know much about me

You don’t know much about me

 

You walk with your ego

And talk with your id

Describing how you

Were a tormented kid

With your x-ray vision

There’re things that you don’t see

You don’t know much about me

You don’t know much about me

 

You say I’m a habit

You’re trying to break

Each habit forsaken

Another one waits

You wave the white flag

But you’ll never be free

You don’t know much about me

You don’t know much about me

 

Vista

 

Take away night vision

Take away dreams

Take away a thousand miles

Go to extremes

Climb through your bolted window

Slip down your hall 

You give away half a chance

I’m taking it all

 

Alleluia – don’t make a sound

Alleluia – burning it down

 

Smoke curls along the drapes

Whispers your name

You tell me I’m crazy

For playing this game

Fire on the cellar stair

Fire in the wall

Take away “forgive me”

Take away recall

 

Alleluia – don’t make a sound

Alleluia – burning it down

 

Falling

Calling to you

Falling to the floor

Open the door

 

Alleluia – don’t make a sound

Alleluia – burning it down.

 

Where We Belong

 

From the riverside  

To the Great Divide

On the sand and shale 

Of a canyon trail

A tangled vine

In the grand design

Never have to wonder where we belong

 

The deepest well from which we’ve drawn

The highest mountain ever known 

One perfect stone

Never have to wonder where we belong

 

The path is long

And it comes around

Find your song

Before the sun goes down

 

The seasons passing one by one

The day begins and then it’s done

Brings us home

Never have to wonder where we belong

 

Time For The Show

 

Speed of sound, up and down

Satellite, bringing the day into night

The day into night

Let’s go –it’s time for the show

Whoa-oh ready and steady you know 

It’s time for the show

 

Never late in my Mustang-8 

Crash the gate, here we go 

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

It’s time for the show

 

Rendezvous, quarter to two

Carousel – laughing and ringing the bell

Ringing the bell

Romeo, touch and go

Jump seat, hand on the radio

It’s time for the show

 

Never late in my Mustang-8 

Crash the gate, here we go

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

It’s time for the show

 

Later on – Texaco station

Come on along, be my inspiration,

My Galaxy

Rocket to the stars, you and me

 

Guitar Star

 

You got an ego about five times too big for you 

You’re hanging out in all the record stores

You got your mirrored shades

A refugee from Hollywood

Ah guitar star – you’re so out of touch

With your throw-back trip 

You really lost your grip

You know you’re much too much 

 

All my friends from the past

Think I grew up to be a big H-bomb 

And you know what?

I’m gonna blow ‘em up up up 

Aw guitar star - it’s all Chuck Berry riffs

What are ya – fifteen? Sixteen?

You’ll always be like this

 

You’re playing it down and laying it down

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

You’re shaking it down and breaking it down

On and on and on and on and on… 

 

I think it’s extremely delightful

You got to shoot up to get up on stage

 I read your book 

A heart attack on every page

Oh guitar star, you really got it made

In this world that you love

Is the world that you hate

It’s the life that you’re living today 

 

Guitar star…  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Stephen Foster

 

They say that all the world’s a stage

Each passing act a golden age

When morning brings the rising sun

We turn another page

 

The weary ones they moan and sigh

Build towers to their gods up in the sky

They wait for those elusive days

When hard times come no more

 

Now comes the time of industry

Unfurl the flag of destiny

Our footsteps echo history 

Of ancient troubadours 

 

Our fathers laid the iron rails

Our brothers on the battlefield fell

Our mothers tended fading fires

And bid those men farewell

 

On victory’s forgotten shore

Lay treasure lost forevermore

But in our hand we hold the key

The angels’ open door

 

I soared above the darkest clouds

Dove deep into the stormy sea

But every time I turned my back

The world turned back to me 

 

The starlight is strumming

The thunder is drumming

The high tide is humming

And hard times are coming no more

 

They say that all the world’s a stage

Each passing act a golden age 

When morning brings the rising sun 

We turn another page

When morning brings the rising sun

We turn another page

 

Sometimes It Just Gets This Way 

 

I stand on the edge 

I got nothing else to do

I know I’ve got the strength 

To pull myself through

Do you know what it’s like 

And does it happen to you too 

 

When you keep yourself hidden

Every thought is forbidden

All the books have been written

But nobody reads

Sometimes it just gets this way

 

I got a couple things 

They’re messing me around

One’s a little up and one’s a little down

Got these sophisticated hang-ups 

Chasing me out of town

 

I ain’t looking for action

Like some kind of split fraction

It’s a half and half attraction

It’s wearing me down

Sometimes it just gets this way

 

Well I’m gone gone gone

But I’m coming back strong

I’m either right or I’m wrong

I guess we’ll see 

Sometimes it just gets this way

 

Well I’m gone gone gone 

But I’m coming back strong

I’m crashing and I’m burning but I’m ok

Sometimes it just gets this way

 

Another Wait And See Night 

 

I listen to the radio

I listen to the rain on the window

I listen to everybody you know

But never to you

 

Turn out the light on another wait and see night

I’m wound up too tight on another wait and see night 

 

I’m waiting at the bus stop

Though it’s clear that I’m not going anywhere

I’m only here to eavesdrop

And listen for you 

 

Turn out the light on another wait and see night

I’m wound up too tight on another wait and see night

 

I wish I could show you 

All the ways that I really do know you

I wish I could tell you

But you’d think that I’m just trying to sell you

 

I’m walking down Main Street 

Passing by the midnight store fronts

Every footstep is a heartbeat

Longing for you

 

Turn out the light on another wait and see night

I’m wound up too tight on another wait and see night 

 

Haley

 

You came to see me today

I met you down the street rising from the subway

To hear what you have to say

I’ll take a pass when you wear that mask

I know those tears

You wear them like a crown of thorns

And this love won’t be reborn

 

Haley, I wanted you, you haunted me

Haley, let me be

Holding on and holding on and on to nothing

Going on and going on and going nowhere

Haley

 

I walk home alone down the cold streets today

And nothing’s gonna get in my way but you

The spider’s web of you, it clings to me

I turn from my door, holding the key

In the shadows I see your ghost on the stairway

I guess there’s no running away

 

Haley, I wanted you, you haunted me

Haley, let me be

Holding on and holding on and on to nothing

Going on and going on and going nowhere

Haley

 

You’re always talking but your voice it never makes a sound

You pull yourself up off the levy just to watch me drown

Why can’t you see that once you’ve lost yourself, you’ll never be found

 

Haley, I wanted you, you haunted me

Haley, let me be

Holding on and holding on and on to nothing

Going on and going on and going nowhere

Haley

 

Aeroplane Baby 

 

Aeroplane Baby

Never touching down

Passing lane lady

Break the barrier of sound

Not just saying maybe

She’s constellation bound

Aeroplane Baby

Never coming down 

 

Tangerine temptress

Pull me in slow

Vagabound Venus

Bring the undertow

Pretty hand-me-down dress

Falling to the ground

Aeroplane Baby

Never coming down

 

You wanted wings

You wanted to fly… 

 

Orbiting the dark star

Hypnotic atmosphere

I’m longing for re-entry

But Baby has no fear

Gravity releases

The second time around

Aeroplane Baby

We’re never coming down 

 

Clever and Astute 

 

Possibly leaving home

Possibly coming back to me again 

To a vision I don’t understand

Possibly leaving me back

Possibly franchised hearts in a robber’s sack

 

In the morning pale 

Empires fail

The drawbridge burns

Aquarius returns

You seek what you 

Know you’ll find

And you believe me

Even though I’m out of my mind

 

Stranger things have happened to you

You are very clever, very astute

Stranger things happen to you. 

 

Love is just a beautiful game

You must play in your mind 

I want to believe in your heart

Just show me a sign

And tear me apart

 

If you have any time 

I can spare a few moments of mine…
