Paper and Pen

Beating heart see what you do to me
Restless soul reaching for ships that leave
Victorian clothes
Candles bleed soft, soft and low

Wanting love words she could never say
Only in books for ladies of her day
Valentine hearts
Paper lays soft, soft and low

You need love
Just to be love
Needing love until the end
Write it out with a paper and pen

Waking up wondering what he will do
When he reads her little billet doux
Beating hearts
Rendezvous
Soft, soft and low

Wanting love words she could never say
Only in books for ladies of her day
Valentine hearts
Paper lays soft, soft and low

You need love
Just to be love
Needing love until the end
Write it out with a paper and pen

I’m not gonna sit you down
Just to show all I’ve learned
In a book that’s being bound

Write it out with a paper and pen
Needing love until the end
Write it out with a paper and pen

To be loved
To be loved
To be loved

DREAM BABY DREAM

 

She puts on her makeup
Smiles as she wakes up
It’s gonna be good

A passion to be famous
Working as a waitress
She’d shine if she could

Cause she knows that it all works out
If you glow there’s no doubt

So turn it on and

Dream baby dream
All night long
You stay strong
and reach for the morning

Dream baby dream
All day long
Sing your song
And keep on dreamin’

It’s a life in shambles
Takin’ all the gambles
She holds her head high

Photos like Monroe
Shoes and dreams to go
She thinks she can fly

Cause she knows she can have it all
It’s the gold
It’s worth the fall

So turn it on and

Dream baby dream
All night long
You stay strong
and reach for the morning

Dream baby dream
All day long
Sing your song
And keep on dreamin’

Cause she knows she can have it all
It’s the gold
It’s worth the fall

So turn it on and

Dream baby dream
All night long
You stay strong
and reach for the morning

Dream baby dream
All day long
Sing your song

And keep on dreamin’
And keep on dreamin’
And keep on dreamin’

Dream baby dream all night long
You stay strong all night long

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

SOMEDAY

 

Melting skylines as you paint time
All that you want to do

Taking new height as you learn flight
All that you want to do

Watching airplanes, making clouds rain
All that you want to do

Crossing over colored boulders
All that you want to do

And it’s all that I want for you

Someday, Someday I’ll run back to you
Feel the flame, feel the flame as I walk on through

You’ll be standing by the back screen door
Waiting for the sun to pour
And see that blue

Shooting colors at the others
All that you want to do

Laughing at scenes made for our dreams
All that you want to do

And it’s all that I want for you

Someday, Someday I’ll run back to you
Feel the flame, feel the flame as I walk on through

You’ll be standing by the back screen door
Waiting for the sun to pour
And see that blue

Pale icy blue eyes
I see you’re wise

Someday, Someday I’ll run back to you
Feel the flame, feel the flame as I walk on through

You’ll be standing by the back screen door
Waiting for the sun to pour
And see that blue

See that blue
See that blue
