Great Expectations

Your TV life can use a mend
Your Hollywood love crashed in the end
Your billboard music sounds so bland
Now it's time to change your band

You are standing in the cross hairs
Of an amped up firmly resolved man
Let me take you to a place where
We'll live out those great expectations

Never mind about the past
When nights were long and life was fast
Free your mind's anxiety
Make it your priority

You are standing in the cross hairs
Of an amped up firmly resolved man
Let me take you to a place where
We'll live out those great expectations

The future is calling simply let those old things go
We'll light up the darkness there will be no limitations

You are standing in the cross hairs
Of an amped up firmly resolved man
Let me take you to a place where
We'll live out those great expectations

Great ex expectations There will be no hesitations
Great ex expectations Only those great expectations

 

 

 

Take My Hand

Looking to the sky as the sun is rising today
A small plane is flying high as you drive your car away.
There’s something in your eyes
And I just want you to know
Take my hand and never let it go.

Listen to the leaves rustling as the warm wind blows
I think I hear our song coming from a radio.
There’s something in your eyes
And I just want you to know
Take my hand and never let it go.

In this changing world there are highs and there are lows.
It's easy to deny the things you know.
But you will understand. You will understand.
So take my hand and never let it go.

Thunder rumbling by rolling in a cloudy night.
Walking side by side closer when the lightning strikes.
There’s something in your eyes
And I just want you to know
(So) Take my hand and never let it go.

IT’S YOU

Walking on this winding road
Life is so free and unplanned
Working to make a living off this land
Suddenly you stood right there
The way you seemed to move the air
Dark sunglasses, lipstick and that flair

It’s you    who knew   it all along
The laughing through the night
It’s you    who proved    it all along
That things would be alright

Never thought in all these years
Things could be so very clear
Why must this be a feeling that is rare

The shadow cast around your eyes
Is brighter than a spring sunrise
Funny how the breeze can move your hair

ALRIGHT

This time it’ll be alright
We’ll make it through the night
Pass another beer along
Have a drink and sing this song
This time it’ll be alright

We’ll make it all seem right
No time to be uptight
Pass another beer along
Have a cheer and sing this song
We’ll make it all seem right

Anyone can come along
There will be no right or wrong
This time it'll be alright

There’ll be no work to do
Only some points of view
Have no fear and sing this song
Sing it as you walk along
There’ll be no work to do

This time it’ll be alright
We’ll make it through the night
Pass another beer along
Have a drink and sing this song
This time it’ll be alright

Six Legendary Cats Suite X

There are no notes or lyrics associated with this instrumental.

Find A Way

Have you seen the one
Who lives in a bleak house
One who never sees the other side

When it's plain to see
Misery is their friend
Better disengage to save your soul

Find a way     Start today
Break away    Find a way

Listen carefully
This distress is harmful
Now it's time to seek some higher ground

Find a way     Start today
Break away    End this fray

Angry ways     (and) selfish plays
Add up to        wasted days

Find a way     Say Good day
Break away    Find a way

Find a way     Straight away
Break away    Find a way

DISTRACTION OVERLOAD

The talk, the phone, the news, it's all so bad
The TV show, the new deceiving ad
Yes it’s here and in the way
Your time just ticks away
Yes it’s here and here to stay
It’s more and its all day

Got to yell, what the hell Distraction Overload
Can't you tell, from your cell Distraction Overload

The noise, the blog, the lights, the angry man
The ones who rip you off, their money plan

Got to yell what the hell Distraction Overload
Ring the bell to expel Distraction Overload

Got to yell what the hell Distraction Overload
Say farewell to the sell, Distraction Overload

Soul Eclipse

Would you think someone who's learned
How to conquer their domain
Could have had their soul eclipse
From a heart that had no flame

Falling down can’t hold on Maybe it's just as well
Yes I'm letting go lost control Falling in to your spell

When there's nothing in the past
That can give some sort of clue
It's as if those other times
Faded from your point of view

Falling down can’t hold on Maybe it's just as well
Yes I'm letting go Lost control Falling in to your spell

Some just want to give That's the way they live
Soul eclipse
Some just want to take That's the choice they make
Soul eclipse

Maybe in a perfect world we can sing it
Never have to think about how to wing it
Soul eclipse
Maybe it's okay to love without conditions
Trusting all the way and back without suspicions
Soul eclipse

TIME WILL TELL

You want to know how strong your love will grow
Will it thrive or will it fade and go
You want to know about your destiny
Will it change if you pray on your knee

You know too well
Like good wine, only time will tell
You know too well
It takes time (so) drink your zinfandel

Time Will Tell
Time Will Tell
Time Will Tell
Only time will tell

You want to know if you’ll be weak or strong
Will you make it through the coming storm
You want to know how long your faith will last
Is it fixed and set as in a cast

Time Will Tell
Time Will Tell
Time Will Tell
Only time will tell

Bright Eyes and Dark Minds

You wake up with the evening sun
Working on the plans for the big one
Just a tweak then you're ready to gun
Never mind the code you're on the run

Bright eyes and dark minds
Will get you like something hot in your hand
Right lies and closed blinds
Keep you coming back because there's no line in the sand

It's not love it's just a game
Everyone in the past was just a face with no name
There's no guilt you have no shame
Doesn't matter who you put in the frame

Bright eyes and dark minds
Will get you like something hot in your hand
Right lies and closed blinds
Keep you coming back just like a hungry hired hand

Bright eyes and dark minds
Will get you like boiling ice in your hand
Right lies and closed blinds
Keep you coming back because the money can't be scanned

Now it's time to bait your mark
Anyone can tell a bite trumps a bark
This is not a play in the park
Better check your cell before it gets dark

Bright eyes and dark minds
Will get you like something hot in your hand
Right lies and closed blinds
Keep you coming back because it's not in you command

Get Reeled In

Lessons taught in school are just for show
Things learned on the road are what you know
Sometimes it's the drink that clouds the sin
That's when the loss feels just like a win

You took the bait, got hooked, and got reeled in

She was just another country girl
We simply thought to give it a whirl
Maybe it was too much beer and gin
I got set up like a bowling pin

I took the bait. got hooked, and got reeled in

So we all walk down that lonesome lane
Searching for that lucky break in vain

We took the bait, got hooked, and got reeled in

Funny how we look back at the time
When we spent our paycheck every dime
If we only knew where we had been
We'd have money for our next of kin

So take the bait, get hooked, and get reeled in

Opaque Mirrors

I am young enough to know that I'm
too old to be in the show also
There is no other sensitive way
for this to be said but it must be

Those opaque mirrors   reflect your mind
You cannot see through when you are blind
You sing   that same   old song   again
You made   a name   then lost   the flame

It's not too late for   no bell has rung
If you ignore   this one
You'll fall through the door   like a man hung
Forever more   it's done

You are way too old to be out there
There is no makeup that can hide those
weathered facial lines of depression
It's so sad that this has to be said

Those opaque mirrors   reflect your mind
You cannot see through when you are blind
When you live life in days far gone

Mirrors reflect those days and they are opaque

She Lives In New Jersey

She floats on the warm sand
Like a surfer rides the blue rolling waves
Then stares straight ahead and at the sea (and)
pretends not to notice me 

She lives in New Jersey down by the shore
She's the captain of her ship the cook and much more
She makes it look easy Shining eyes like a star
I remember when we met at that grill and bar

First she sets the blanket and opens up a light chair
And then kicks off her sneakers and flips out her hair
She wiggles out of her blue fashion brand jeans
And around with that smile
And after all of these years no matter what she wears
She has that Jersey style

She lives in New Jersey down by the shore
She's the captain of her ship the cook and much more
She makes it look easy When she's dancing around
With a brilliant wit and vintage charm that's unbound

She lives in New Jersey down by the shore
She's the captain of her ship the cook and much more
She makes it look easy With a natural spunk
She's a rocker when she rolls with a bit of punk

She lives in New Jersey down by the shore
She's the captain of her ship the cook and much more
She makes it look easy you know she is alive
With an undeniably sound vigor of five

Walk The Line

This land was once for you and me
Back when they fought for liberty

Now that it's gone   restraints are on
This land is where we ought to be

The answer blows by in the wind
Sang with a smile as he grinned

When you don't know   you'll take the blow
Then life goes lowing in the wind                 

Take a stand on this beat Rise above all the heat
Let it shine Raise a sign Walk the line Walk the line

I heard that love is all you need
How is love used to fight this greed

I want to be around to see
The day when love is all you need

Take a stand on this beat Rise above all the heat
Let it shine Raise a sign Walk the line Walk the line

Good Morning Omerica

Yes Good Morning Omerica The homeland of the free
Where the magic you spread all around ends up in our once blue sea

You know the farmer in the dell could no longer sow his seed
Since the corporate man from hell came to confiscate his deed

Well Good Morning Omerica The monoculture way
So you hide your brand from public eyes you're afraid of what they'll say

You know that Jimmy cracked the corn It was Jack who broke his crown
Jill got filled with scorn when they shot the label down

Yes Good Morning Omerica Where it's in to be so green
Hold up high and wave the eco flag just to suit your one way dream

Yes good morning good morning good morning to you
Yes good morning good morning good morning to you

So just round up all those bogeymen and send them all away
Before the golden chick from Mother Hen gets Porky's DNA

Yes Good Morning Omerica You can ring the freedom bell
When the chorus sings about your ways you will lawyer up and yell

So good morning good morning good morning to you
Yes good morning good morning good morning to you
Well good morning good mourning good morning to you
Yes good morning good mourning good morning good warning to you
