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

MOVE INTO LIGHT

 

Look up my sparkling star
The room has moved around us
We must stay where we are
I’m out on the balcony
Looking down on you
Please show me the sight

Move into light
Move into light
Move into light

It’s been so long since I’ve called for you
Now that you’re here I long for you
I want to see what used to burn in me
Please show me the sight

Move into light
Move into light
Move into light

Move into light
Move into light
Move into light

And shine

ONLY SUNDAY

 

So
I’m not your pot of gold
Not your diamond in the snow
But I can shine

Told I shouldn’t even try
You’ve got adventure in your eyes
Might call me when you’re home

This is only Sunday
We barely made the news
Couldn’t wait just one day

This is only one way
We barely were brand new
Couldn’t wait just one day

Try
You’re not so far behind
I know it’s all inside
Cause I’ve seen you watch big skies

Oh, I
I’m running from behind
Trying to make you right
But no one runs with you

This is only Sunday
We barely made the news
Couldn’t wait just one day

This is only one way
We barely were brand new
Couldn’t wait just one day

Only Sunday
Only Sunday
Only Sunday

NEW YEAR’S EVE

 

There’s snow on the street
Everybody come see
I remember when we met on New Year’s Eve
Everybody packed in
A house in Madison
But it was really just you and me

And the lights went low
There was nowhere else to go
But in your arms
Where we may never be found
May never be found

We ran fast into the snow
It covered all of us like ghosts
On a winter flight to a warmer home

And the lights went low
There was nowhere else to go
But in your arms
Where we may never be found
May never be found
On a winter flight to a warmer home

The winter night is shining
Endless white is winding
We’re on a flight above the snow

And the lights go low
There was nowhere else to go
But in your arms
Where we may never be found
May never be found
May never be found

SUNSETS IN BLOOM

 

Rose from the bay
Covered in day last June
Blue lit gaze and liked to speak of the moon
He liked to pretend that the night wasn’t coming in

And it goes down, down
And it
Sets in bloom

S hame it had to fade
Just getting used to the way we moved
The orange had a way of taking the reds not too soon
We liked to pretend that the night wasn’t coming in
