Come Around

 

While the sun beats down
I find myself hanging around
Your beat up porch
Stretched out wanting more
Well, can you help me out?
Maybe come around for awhile?
Cause I feel no good being all alone

Come round, come around
Being near you is better than being down
Come round, come around
Seeing you makes it all good somehow

Heard you took off down the coast
A friend said you might be back for one more
Long cool night
One much like tonight
Well, can I help you out?
I’d bring it to you this time
Cause I’m sure running low on you tonight

Come round, come around
Being near you is better than being down
Come round, come around
Seeing you makes it all good somehow

Will you be around?
Will you be around?
When you come around
Will I be around?

Come round, come around
Being near you is better than being down
Come round, come around
Seeing you makes it all good somehow

ONE STATION

 

He walks with pride
She talks with sighs
Stand side by side
He can’t see how she cries

Cooks for the lads
Quick turns turn fast
Reads job here ads
Draws her dreams on check pads

Tune to the room on one station
Turn your radio loud you can feel sensation

Tune to the room on one station
Turn your stereo loud it’s a new creation

Hangs clothes on hooks
“Sweet Dreams or Crooks?”
He walks in to look
Finds her deep in love books

Tune to the room on one station
With your radio loud you can feel sensation

Tune to the room on one station
Turn your stereo loud it’s a new creation

One heart one life
One right to fight
To start or strike?
Please don’t hurt me with no sight

Tune to the room on one station
With your radio loud you can feel sensation

Tune to the room on one station
Turn your stereo loud it’s a new creation

OVER YOUR SHOULDER

 

When I wake me up
In the afternoon
When I wipe the mud
From last night’s doom

When I see what’s mine
You’ll know it too
Gonna be my boy
When I sit near you

Over your shoulder
Over your shoulder
Over your shoulder

When you take me out
In the dusk we roam
I’m the girl with a dog
I need a ride home

I can see it all
You’re in it too
I’ve got the goods
Take it through

Over your shoulder
Over your shoulder
Over your shoulder

I left it all
I traveled long
This is my home
Where the kids belong

We’re on the street
We’re on the steps
We’re on the block
Leave if you’re upset

Oh it’s so hard trying to make it good all the time cause I just really want to live it up and have some fun you know what I’m saying?

Over your shoulder
Over your shoulder
Over your shoulder

BETTER

 

Woke up in the morning with a tear in my eye
Counted my horses
Turned my face to the sky
Cold and I’m only a mile from my bed
Rode along towards the light up ahead
Miles and miles to the day
Won’t be long until I find my way

T hings will get better
Might be the rain will just blow on by
And get better

Knocked on the door in my little sundress
Nobody answered
I walked into confess
Mom be my friend tonight
I can see the fear in your eyes

Better
Things will get better
Might be the rain will just blow on by
And get better

Better
Things will get better
Might be the rain will just blow on by
And get better

Rolled with the money
Sold my friends for free
Told all the girls that they’ll get what they need
Might be the way that you just learn to fly

Better
Things will get better
Might be a way that you just learn to fly
And get better

Better
Things will be better
Might be the rain will just blow on by
And get better

Only a mile from my bed
On to the light up ahead
Might be the way that you said

PRETTY SKY

 

Crashing down through the hall
Watching lighting on the wall
Outside he’s calling come and fly
Too bad he’s falling from the sky

Sparkle now in my mind
Catch the glow a second time
Thinks he’s the answer to a cry
Then how come I’m smiling tonight

I looked away just in time
Who needs your rain when I’ve got my own pretty sky?
The night has changed
Something warm and bright
Who needs your flame when I’ve got my own pretty light?

Crashing lighting cause a grin
My favorite color is coming in
Outside he’s watching our worlds divide
Stands like a fool
Can’t come inside

I looked away just in time
Who needs your rain when I’ve got my own pretty sky?
The night has changed
Something warm and bright
Who needs your flame when I’ve got my own pretty light?

I feel the rain
I feel the sun
I feel the change
I’m moving on

I looked away just in time
Who needs your rain when I’ve got my own pretty sky?
The night has changed
Something warm and bright
Who needs your flame when I’ve got my own pretty light?

HAVE HEART LIVE YOUNG

 

Sitting in his favorite chair
Listening to the radio blare
Country Roads is playing on the oldies again

Writing daughters on the coast
While he eats his dry wheat toast
Waving to the neighbors
It’s Monday again

It’s a cold year but it’s warm here

A real shame that we run
Have heart live young

An old song that we sung
have heart live young

Laughing kids pouring in
White with snow and frost bit chins
Hungry for a donut
Day olds again

He can’t help but love the scene
Coffee swirling with the cream
Talking to the neighbors
Let’s do it again

It’s a cold year but it’s warm here

A real shame that we run
Have heart live young

An old song that we sung
have heart live young
