Old Fashion Love Song

Sometimes you see me, but you don’t know I’m there

I know that’s confusing, and I know that you care

in your own little ways, still I wish you could share

all the life that I feel you conceal under there

chorus:

And I know it might sound a little cliche

singing my love in this old fashion way

but I know that our love could take us away

so how do I give up on that now?

I’ll say it again, I just don’t understand

how the touch of our hearts feeds the touch of our hands

yet you’ll sit there and tell me this is not in your plans,

that your freedom’s more crucial than true love’s demands

chorus:

And I know it might sound a little cliche

singing my love in this old fashion way

but I know that our love could take us away

so how do I give up on that now? X2

To the Ocean

I say my prayers to the Ocean

I send my cares to the sea

I say my prayers to the Ocean

Won’t you bring my baby back to me

I’m feelin all locked up inside now

Its been a month long misery

Its been so long I don’t know how now

To set this saddened spirit free

So I say my prayers to the Ocean

I send my cares to the sea

I say my prayers to the Ocean

Won’t you bring my baby back to me

 Instrumental break

I’m singing songs about the night time

Cause that’s when we were at our best

I think right now might be the right time

To close my eyes and get some rest

I say my prayers to the Ocean

I send my cares to the sea

I say my prayers to the Ocean

Won’t you bring my baby back to me

I say my prayers to the Ocean

I send my cares to the sea

I say my prayers to the Ocean

Won’t you bring my baby back to me

Trees

Trees are planted and cut down

Planted and cut down

Planted and cut down down down

The growth in between

Is separate it seems

And each moment represents a lifetime of dreams

And trees are planted and cut down

Planted and cut down

Planted and cut down down down

We don’t know where we’re going

So we stand in the same place

Lurching forward and then backward

killing time and filling space

We don’t know where we’re going

So we stand in the same place

Lurching forward and then backward

killing time and filling space

While trees are planted and cut down

Planted and cut down

Planted and cut down down down

Instrumental break

So in some ways we all change

But we mostly stay the same

And the time has come for everyone

To quit pointing the blame

In some ways we all change

But we mostly stay the same

And the time has come for everyone to stop pointing the blame

While trees are planted and cut down

Planted and cut down

Planted and cut down down down

While trees are planted and cut down

Planted and cut down

Planted and cut down down down

Let it go

Hey there lovely wild man, take it easy off the block

Though your insides may be shaking and your mind too gone to talk

Hold your hand out for the dollar, count your change out by the cents

‘Cause you’re making none to me now all worked up and so intense

Hey there beautiful bright soldier, feel the pull to stand at ease

Your sweet mistress begs for presence,

Softly praying on her knees

Let it go now, let it go

Come on get back in bed

Hold me closely, hear the rain fall

Let our loving clear your head

Instrumental break

Hey there beautiful bright soldier, feel the pull to stand at ease

Your sweet mistress begs for presence,

Softly praying on her knees

Let it go now, let it go

Come on get back in bed

Hold me closely, hear the rain fall

Let our loving clear your head

Let it go now, let it go

Come on get back in bed

Hold me closely, hear the rain fall

Let our loving clear your head…

Where you headed

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

That fear won’t help you overcome

I caught that look from behind your smile, and I swear your stare just bleeds denial

So what’s up baby? Please don’t fake it

without the truth, we just won’t make it

I won’t ignore that you ain’t been right since I sang you that song on the very first night

You catch my look and you dodge my knowing,

but we both know my suspicious been growing

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

That fear won’t help you overcome

Instrumental (electric guitar solo, bit of a jam)

Now first things first, you can’t put me last and expect me to fall for all those spells you cast

’cause time tells truths that do not fly, and I’m done with this, you won’t see me cry

I’m singing songs to be born anew

and this lovin’ in my heart will forever stay true

I know your face, I know your mind

so move along baby it was not our time

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

That fear won’t help you overcome

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

Where you headed, what you running from

That fear won’t help you overcome

noooo, mmmm…

Where you headed what you running from..

Love you can’t control

Why be afraid, of a love you can’t control?

You spend so much time worrying

about how it might go

Well what if I were to promise you, you will never be alone?

Would you spend your lifetime giving in to a love you can’t control?

When all your friends have gone away, you know just where I’ll be

The one who loves your light and dark, and all that’s in between

Now I know just where you’re coming from, and I ain’t got no where to be

so I’m outside your door just waiting for

your heart to be set free

(small interlude)

Now I know that there may come a time, we’ll go our separate ways,

but I promise you that when it’s through, we’ll smile upon our days,

I just can’t bare the thought of walking on, not knowing either way

The chance we missed because the risk was too high a price to pay

So why be afraid, of a love you can’t control?

You spend so much time worrying

about how it might go

Well what if I were to promise you, you will never be alone?

Would you spend your lifetime giving in to a love you can’t control?

Would you spend your lifetime giving in to a love you can’t control?

(end.)

Somebody to love you

So you know about drinking whisky

Getting crazy and having fun

Well what’you know about going somewhere? It’s not the same as being on the run.

You say life is for living loudly,

Burn our don’t fade away

Well I see your demons, they’re right behind you,

You’ll have to face them in the light of day

Pre-chorus:

And don’t ever let them see you sad, is what you tell yourself

Well that’s a lonely dark road baby

And I know you want so bad

Chorus:

For somebody to love you

See through all your pain

Somebody to love you

Shine light on you again

Oh honey I know, that I could be somebody to love you…

They say your daddy was a freedom fighter,

But your mama was a wrecking ball

And somewhere in amongst that madness,

A little boy built a sturdy wall.

Grew into a hardened warrior,

All alone in a world so rough

Knew nothing could ever break him,

Had his defenses for when times got tough

Pre-chorus:

And don’t ever let them see you sad, is what you tell yourself

Well that’s a lonely dark road baby

And I know you want so bad

Chorus:

For somebody to love you

See through all your pain

Somebody to love you

Shine light on you again

Somebody to love you

See through all your pain

Somebody to love you

Shine light on you again

Oh honey I know, that I could be somebody to love you…

Can’t You See?

Well I can’t help you find you

But I can walk beside you

I can lighten up the darkness by saying things like

It’s not so bad

and then dancing like crazy to no music at all

But you choose your perspective

And your choices seem directed

Quite stubbornly I must say

at having things the hard way

But can’t you see the love?

Oh baby, can’t you see the love?

Well now, you get up, you get by,

You say things like “The world is so crazy”

and “People they don’t phase me”

But I know it’s because you don’t let them in

Now tell me can’t you see the love?

Oh baby, can’t you see the love?

You can see it in the wind and the rain, cooling and giving birth

to new born babies

music, dancing, laughing, and

colours, blue purple, red and green

The earth and family,

Especially the ones you choose for yourself

So tell me can’t you see the love?

Oh baby, can’t you see the love?

One more time..

Now tell me can’t you see the love?

Oh baby, can’t you see the love?

Rest

Yellow moon, full and bright

Cause my soul and mind to fight

Voices whisper in the night

Of time upon itself

When daylight breaks they’ll all be gone

And empty, aching, meet the dawn

A shallow grave to rest upon

A life so close waste

And fear she beckons from her hole

This hopeful heart, dark culture stole

An uphill climb will take its toll

This body aches for rest.

Yellow moon, full and bright

Cause my soul and mind to fight

Voices whisper in the night

Of time upon itself

When daylight breaks they’ll all be gone

And empty, aching, meet the dawn

A shallow grave to rest upon

A life so close waste

And fear she beckons from her hole

This hopeful heart, dark culture stole

An uphill climb will take its toll

This body aches for rest.

Yellow moon, full and bright

Cause my soul and mind to fight

Voices whisper in the night

Of time upon itself

Festival Song

So I got us some tickets to the festival

Writing you this letter just to let you know

It would make me very happy if we all could go

I miss that free love feeling when you’re gone

Remembering those nights when we would hold each other’s hands

And spend the night time singing to our favourite bands

I’m wondering if I’ll ever make you understand

These moments are all I will ever need

And its freedom knowing

That everything we’re needing for our plan

It all fits inside my ’99 Dodge Caravan…

So let’s sing our hearts out at the festival

People all around us we don’t even know

We’ll be swaying in the moonlight at the main stage show

And everyone around us will just smile

And we’ll all dance wildly and project the proof

That love and music is the only truth

We’re living all the secrets to eternal youth

And making all the stars around us shine

And its freedom knowing

That everything we’re needing for our plan

It all fits inside my ’99 Dodge Caravan…

So I got us some tickets to the festival

Writing you this letter just to let you know

It would make me very happy if we all could go

I miss that free love feeling when you’re gone
