1- Move On

I just finished up  your letter

You wanna know when things get better ?

When will you be up, not so down

Stranded far from town

All you see these days are gray skies

All you’re hearing are the blue lies

Askin’ what you lack

Gotta get yourself  back

 

Chorus:

On and on the beat goes on

Soon this second will be gone

Another day here and gone

... move on

 

Life is all about the yearning

And another page a - turning

True love and happiness, why so hard ?

Is it just in the cards ?

Somebody once said something

It all comes down to one thing

Move on, move on

Don’t waste sweet precious time (chorus)

 

Nobody’s getting any younger

Don’t have to be to have the hunger

It’s in your hands,  no one else

can put you on the shelf

The weather’s getting warmer

Maybe you are getting stronger

Move on, move on

Don’t waste your precious time 

 

Chorus:

On and on the beat goes on

Soon this second will be gone

Another day here and gone

...move on

Moments come, moments go

Nothing makes the time move slow

Another day here and gone

...move on

 

2- Make You Mine

Good morning golden sunrise

Rising in the sky

A lonely night gone by

She’s one in a million

Can’t get you off my mind

I wanna make you mine 

There’s blue on the mountain

Red tailed hawk soars

Above the river’s shores

Wood smoke slowly drifting

Then disappears in time

I need to make you mine

Make you mine.....I need to make you mine

 

Good day becoming high noon

Warm my frigid hands

So I can send this telegram

Come meet me at the station

Meet me anytime

I need to make you mine

Make you mine....I need to make you mine

Make you mine....I need to make you mine

 

Hello early twilight

Nothing has been done

Go down you westward sun

The day’s last rays are dying

Can’t get you off my mind

I gotta make you mine

Make you mine I wanna make you mine

Make you mine I need to make you mine

Make you mine I wanna make you mine

 

Good night yellow moonshine

There’s too much in my head

It’s hard to lay in bed

If I just had you with me

Look into my eyes

So I can make you mine

Make you mine.....

Make you mine I wanna make you mine

Make you mine I need to make you mine

Make you mine I wanna make you mine

Make you mine I need to make you mine

 

3- Get Back

How am I gonna get back to that cabin

How am I gonna get back to the land

Mighty river rollin’ through the valley

Gonna wash you where you stand

Morning winds whispering soft and quiet

Tryin’ say something to my ear

Can’t be heard above the roar of the river

Rambling like an auctioneer

 

How am I gonna get back to the city

How am I gonna get back to the streets

There’s a million miles of open highway

Between here and Easy Street

There’s a pale moon up on the rooftop

Sky scraper scrapes the sky

There’s a crazy man up on the antenna

Telling everyone that he’s gonna fly 

 

Chorus:

Runaway Boy

Run away now

Gotta get back to myself

And I’m trying to learn how

Fly away bird

Take to the sky

There’s mountains of stone and steel

I gotta get by

 

How am I gonna get back to the laughter

How am I gonna get back to that space

I got lost on an endless highway

Just trying to keep the pace

How am I gonna get back to the ocean

How am I gonna get back to the shore

There’s miles and miles of coastline

And that’s what I’m gettin’ for (chorus)

 

How am I gonna get back to that cabin

How am I gonna get back to the land

Mighty river rollin’ through the valley

Gonna drop you where you stand

Morning winds whispering soft and quiet

Tryin’ say something to my ear

Can’t be heard above the roaring of the river

Rambling like an auctioneer (chorus)

 

4-Don’t Turn Around 

The sky is on fire

The water is blue

In the distance I can see an image of you

Gold Autumn leaves

Getting ready to fall

It’s a good time for change

a good time for us all

 

Chorus:

Hey, there’s one thing that will slow you down

If you find yourself losing your ground

Hold strong, don’t turn around

Don’t turn around

 

The Summer’s too hot

The Winter’s too cold

We fight being young but don’t wanna get old

We’re too much in debt

Still we don’t have enough

And all the world’s gold couldn’t buy you true love (chorus)

 

The road is too long

The river’s too wide

The cavern’s too dark and the walls are too high

The doors are locked shut

And you’re caught in the rain

There’s always a risk better live for the gain (chorus)

 

5- River Song

Went down to the river’s edge and built myself a dream

Right there where things grow wild and the waters gleam

Then the rain fell, the river swelled and washed the whole damn thing away

Guess I gotta build again, better start today 

There really ain’t a reason and it’s so hard to explain

For every piece of pleasure there’s a dosing of some pain

I can see the beauty of that river in my mind

Though sometimes it’s dark and deep when the sun don’t shine

 

Chorus:

Roll, roll, roll

Let the river roll

As long as it don’t flow on over me

 

Somewhere on an island on some far off distant shore

Is the very sea shell I’ve been searching for

I held it for a moment once, it slipped into the tide

I’ve been searching ever since at every waterside (chorus)

 

Woman of my vision you’re the keeper of my soul

If I ever lost you girl I’d lose some control

Like that river keeps on running ‘til it dies out in the sound

Gotta keep moving baby can’t let nothing slow you down .... (chorus)

 

6- Late Summer Skies

Let the rain fall, let the thunder boom

Batten down the hatches in the living room

A late day storm came passing through

Then the sun came back and lit the sky before we knew

 

Far away in another world

There’s a different boy and another girl

But it’s all the same when it comes to this

There’s nothing better than a moonlit summer kiss

 

Chorus:

Sun going down melting out of the sky

As dusk gives way to the fireflies

There’s a yearning and burning

For the fourth of July

‘Neath late summer skies

 

When school let out we bust through those doors

Our brains were full we couldn’t take it anymore

We’d make a little bread and sneak some cigarettes

On a bank beneath the bridge is where we met

 

Now the old dirt road and those wildflowers

Are dying slowly by the hour

The summer folks are leaving town

Old shutters shut and some leaves are down (chorus)

 

Let the rain fall let the thunder boom

Before we know we’ll be beneath the harvest moon

Summer fades in Autumn’s cool breeze

The last crickets chirping through the swaying trees (chorus)

 

7- Once More

Got no words to say right now

Words can only make things worse

Guess we’ve come to see the light of day

Nothing’s ever gonna quench the thirst

You believed so deeply

That’s what made me believe

Who knew those days of innocence

Could ever up and leave

 

Chorus:

I’ll say it once more if it’s any conciliation

Still got the fire burning

But I’m walking out on thin ice

When day breaks we’ll give it all it takes

When you’re running low on love you know

It’s hard to pay the price

 

Bubbles bursting all around the wet and pretty ones

Some break before they touch the ground

One last glisten in the sun

For every burst or shattered dream there was a perfect plan

But nothing stands the test of time

If you build it out on the sand (chorus)

 

Wonder if there’s any way we can get this right

Feels we’ve fought the final round

And now somebody’s gonna try and stop the fight

At least I always knew I had you, you were the one

But everything keeps changing

In my world beneath the sun (chorus)

 

8- Blue Morn

Running from the rumbling

Running down the road

Toward the open water where the rest of it unfolds

Black cloud by the harbor

Black cloud in the sky

Black and soot just falling fast

And caking up my eyes

Then they crumbled

They tumbled down

And the city was a broken town

And the people were upside down

Order wasn’t anywhere to be found

 

Chorus:

Blue morn

Blue morn

Wake up honey it’s time to greet the dawn

 

Down around the seaside

Sirens screaming by the shore

A million feet walked on the bridge changed for ever more

I stayed by the harbor

Then caught a boat away

Knowing everything was different

The whole world changed that day

And the skyline

Was dressed in black

Like the color from an old smoke stack

And the people could not look back

‘Cause reason lost control that day out on a slippery track (chorus)

 

Rolling on the river now

Rolling with the tide

That day will seem like yesterday as long as I’m alive

Innocence is gone for good

Innocence is lost

Too many bridges being burned

Before they’re even crossed

And the people

Who are left behind

Search for answers we will never find

While the eagle is flying blind

The wounded dove is doing everything he can to climb (chorus)

Wake up honey it’s time to be moving on...

 

9- Still Need You Near

Colors of the last warm day

Wind it comes blows them away

Pending fall, dreading cold

Feeling  young but growing old

These dreams I’m having in my head

They wake than knock me from my bed

Lost like a ship out at sea

And in the throes of mutiny

 

Chorus:

Deep, deep our heart

We’re never apart

But I still need you near

 

Warm brown eyes of almond shape

Into those eyes I must escape

It’s cold out here I need the sun

Spent too much time out on run

Keep me warm wrapped in your arms

Keep my heart from further harm

Whisper something to my ear

Make my blues just disappear (chorus)

 

I still need you near

I still need you near

I still need you near

I still need you near

 

Morning wakes the breeze blows in

And touches soft upon your skin

The early bird still sings his tune

He knows that winter’s coming soon

Keep me warm wrapped in your arms

Keep my heart from further harm

It’s cold out here I need the sun

Spent too much time out on run (chorus)

 

10- Let’s Take Tonight

Honey look, what a perfect night

And the stars are out and the moon is bright

A distant night bird calls and the breeze is light

Just you and me all wrapped in our dreams

On a blanket beneath the tall evergreens

At a time when time don’t mean a thing

 

Chorus:

Now that night has fallen

And the stars are all aligned

Let’s take tonight

And leave the rest behind

Let’s take tonight

 

Who needs the world with it’s downs and it’s woes

Had it from here down to my toes

If I had big wings we would take flight

High up above those bright evergreens

To Venus or Mars through any moon beam

Where the world just down below don’t mean a thing (chorus)

 

Give me a seaside room with a view

But it don’t mean a thing if I didn’t have you

Sunshine through gold curtains casts a spell

Spark in the dark our silhouette on the wall

Morning sunrise giving way to the fall

Shining on the blankets where we fell (chorus) 

 

11- Girl With the Auburn Hair

Travel alone by autumn moon

Travel alone by night

Along the highest precipice

Under the guiding light

A musical band of gypsies

Playing a tune on time

Riding the box on rickety track

They disappear down the line

 

Travel alone by winter’s sun

Shining down on the snow

Keeping an eye for the one that I need

Searching wherever I go

Has someone been here to see me?

A lady with beautiful eyes

With hair reddish-brown, wearing a gown

Prettier than a sunrise

 

Chorus

Travel ‘til I’m weary

Travel ‘til I’m there

Travel on ‘til I can find

The girl with the auburn hair

Travel ‘til I’m older

Travel ‘til I’m sure

Travelin’ blind until I find

A love that will endure

 

Travel alone in springtime

Feeling the sun grow warm

Melting the snow, clearing the way

Everything’s being reborn

Each day getting longer

Buds bloom on the trees

I can’t help but think to myself

Is she thinking of me (chorus)

 

Moving alone by summer stars

Hoping to find true north

Movin’ by land movin’ by sea

Movin’ back and forth

Sweet scent of Honeysuckle

Floating in the air

Could she be high on the overlook

I’ll climb to see if she’s there (chorus)

 

12- Everything Will Be Fine

Hanging ‘round in the kitchen

Empty rooms all around

Gray rain tapping on the window pane

I can hear every sound

One more day in this body

Another one in this skin

Sometimes I don’t even know

Exactly the shape that I’m in

 

Soon will come a beginning

If I can just get to the end

Been writing a letter telling just how I feel

I know I never will send

Everyone’s got their own story

Nobody’s free from their tale

Some ships who ruled on the great open blue

Some who just cannot set sail

 

For everything there’s a reason

It all adds up in the end

It’s hard to see it unfolding

So we doubt it all over again

I haven’t been to the ocean

In too long a time, so it feels

I need to be shoeless and stand in the tide

And feel the sand swallow my heels

 

Somewhere beyond the horizon

Is at times where I wanna be

Sailing in silence, drifting alone

With the sun and the sounds of the sea

Tonight I’ll light a few candles

Have a smoke and a glass of red wine

And get lost in the music like leaves in the wind

And know everything will be fine 

Everything will be fine (repeat and fade)
