LITTLE GUY

Sometime
When wandering slowly
From the gravel below me
I heard some mumbling

So I raised my left eye
And spotted these small guys
They were calling for me
They said,

CHORUS
“There’s nothing left to do now
You took your final bow
Now give the ground a smack and just fly on back!

There’s nothing left to say here
You’ve only learned from tears
It’s been a wild ride aren’t you bleary eyed?”

Then the little one said to a butterfly
Don’t you think it’s time she took to the sky
It’s murky here and there’s too much yacking
Instead of love they just keep snacking

Up there it’s quite refreshing you’ll find
You never get strangled by the big guy’s tie
You’re light as air and you’re looking dapper
So flip your flappers to ever after

(Chorus)

Well this time
I may have lost my mind
But they offered sound advice
Albeit they’re three inches high

My boys turned to dust and I let out a sigh
Talk about a straight jab right at my lie
You never much cared for a good life for me
So won’t you please mind setting me free?

There’s nothing left to say here
We’ve only learned from tears
With all this sting in my eye
I’ll find that same little guy
To tell my story

There’s nothing left to do now
You took your final bow
And in my closing commands
You cut the string from my hands

(Chorus)
(Final word is “paradise”)

CALL ME CRAZY

Maybe I should’ve told you
But it’s better in a song
What I tell to my pillow
Leaves craters here so long

(chorus)
And they’ll call me crazy
But I can’t say that I mind
For though the long road is lazy
I’m not bothered there by time

When left in daylight’s falling
Contritions in the air
The song we’d been wailing
Bore black I could not bare

(chorus)

Say you’ll love
It’s still unsung
Say you’ll love me long
Say you’ll love
It’s still unsung
Say you’ll love me long

On the ledge of our stories
As they dry out in the sun
There I’ll tether my longing
Just to feel that we are one

(chorus)

 

GIGI'S SONG

I’m gonna sing for you
Cause that’s what my soul wants me to do
And I’m gonna melt this room
Down to the deepest shade of blue
Cause she’s on the wind now
Running circles around the moon
And she says no crying
Just let her song come through

There’s no greater love
I hear her say
Than when your burdens lift away
So now like a child she lies
In meadows weightless and flooded with light
And peace be her shepard
As in love she lived her life
And it’s not up to me and you
To let her song come through

As in a summer fable
Where the breeze blesses you
So was her grace
That carried her through
And so now can we celebrate this day
For the life that she brought through
And it’s now up to me and you
To let her song come through

There’s no greater love
I hear her say
Than when your burdens lift away
So now like a child she lies
In meadows weightless and flooded with light
And peace be her shepard
As in love she lived her life
And it’s not up to me and you
To let her song come through

On and on
We go on and on
On and on
We go on and on…..

WALK ON

Her cry broke out beneath the sign of fire, luck and love
“This one’s strong”, her mama said, “she’ll make a pathway all her own.”
And when her curls began to fall, she made up her own song
And all the elders said her mind and heart could blind the stars above
Until she finds a man to love
Until she finds a man to love

So now Mister Mister
On one knee knew the power of her word
She said, “Can I keep my mind, if I take your hand
Or is that not how this works.

Tell me what if I say no
Do I need he to make me whole
Can I be here on my own
Can she walk on all on her own

Oh girl
She’s growing up strong just to give herself away
Oh No
You gotta live in this world don’t you trade it all for this
Diamond ring
Say where to go, they’ll believe anything you say

The little ones come to claim her heart and pull her down the road
While moon looks down to meet her gaze
It seems the only one who knows
Her arms are full and can’t reach out to the Queendom she would hold
“Oh well” she whispers, “Next time round, I won’t do as I’m told.
No I won’t do as I’m told.
Gonna walk on where I wanna go.

Oh girl
She’s growing up strong just to give herself away
Oh No
You gotta live in this world don’t you trade it all for this
Diamond ring
Say where to go, they’ll believe anything you say


Oh, girls
We’re growing up strong just to give ourselves away
Oh No
We gotta live in this world we can’t trade it all for these
Diamond rings
Let’s Say where to go, they’ll believe anything we say

Tell me what if I say no

Walk on all on my own

BLUE

Something about the world
Calling from the pages as they unfurl
I’m walking on blue getting closer to my true

Find me in legends old
Gathering the places into my fold
It’s offered to you, this wisdom of the Blue

Something about the world
(Here on the pages true)
Calling from the pages as they unfurl
(I found the love I knew)
I’m walking on blue
(I’m walking on the blue)
getting closer to my true
(I’m getting closer)

Find me in legends old
(Where all the world unfolds)
Gathering the places into my fold
(Gathering the world into my fold)
It’s offered to you
This wisdom of the Blue

Sometimes I hold my angels to the fire
And run like a fool unto the fray
And it’s so like I
To burn my blessings
And be the last one
To carry them away

Find me in legends old

 

WAXWING

Glistening
Sideways you glance while you’re listening
Unsure of why you are lingering
Why not soar through the skies

Now you’re leaving
Eyes down with promises trailing
Makes me unsettled
Just take me, on where you wanna go fly

You don’t know, there
Illusions make all these goodbyes
And we couldn’t know why
Child it’s alright

Waxwing
Silky and delicate
Sighing
Bohemian feathers you chase me
Pass me your fruit you’re so kind

You don’t know there
Illusions make all these goodbyes
And we couldn’t know why
And we couldn’t know why
Child it’s alright

I ran wild until this came to me
I ran wild until you sang to me
I ran wild until you dreamed I’d be

Glistening …

You don’t know there
Illusions make all these goobyes
And we couldn’t know why
And we couldn’t know why

Child it’s alright …

ANYWAY

It’s never gonna be ours one day
But I’ll hold you in my arms and tell you anyway
That you’re the one for me so I’m putting my heart away
And I’m down on my knees and begging the stars to stay

We’re never gonna see that one fine day
But I’ll sing it in this song and dream it anyway
Beyond our little world they’re taking our love away
If only they could feel what we can never say

And I’m leading you home
Leading you home
And I know where I belong
Know where I belong
But watch me fall away

It’s never gonna be ours one day
But I’ll hold you in my arms and tell you anyway
That you’re the one for me
So I’m putting my heart away
And I’m down on knees
And begging my life away

ALIVE

Now before the sun I wake
And find myself alone
Where within my soul does quake
And tries to call me home
Long before the broken day
I hold myself inside
Now before this world I wake
And know what I must find
A sacred place inside
To feel myself alive


On and on I catch a breath
And clasp my life in bone
Here in this cacoon I dress
With all I’ve never shown
Long before the broken day
I hold myself inside
Now before this world I wake
And know what I must find
A sacred place inside
To feel myself alive


And I will stand where you uncover me
So you can hold me to the light
And I show you all this comes to be
To burn or to bear in time


Here before the crows I shake
In towers all my own
The land beneath is yours to take
The master let it go
Long before this broken day
I held myself inside
Now before this world I wait
To see what they will find
In this sacred place inside
That now becomes alive


And I will stand where you uncover me
So you can hold me to the light
And I'll show you all that comes to be
To burn or to bear in time

And I would give you every part of me
So you can hold me to the light
And I will show you all that comes to be
To burn or to bear in time

Show you every part of me, oh light

Give you all.

 

ALL THE WHILE

All my life
There is a prophet
Crooning in my mind
I find her visions in my looking glass stare
Composing a mad affair

But in this room
The table is turning
with the same damn tune
Where all the players they
recite the same scene
And never perform my dream

Turn it around
Spin it upside down
Look at the world
Throw it all out
Flibbity dip
All your lines now
Give it a whirl
And we go
Da da da dow
Fleebitdada
Flee bitdada
Flee bidada
Ba ya bop bop badada dow


All my life
I whiley-flap along to pass the time
I’m running wild with a fling and a flare
Riding here on a prayer

 

JIMINY CRICKET

Once there were footsteps pounding on my brow
That would kick me all about
Sit up straight fly right no matter my frown
And I had strings across my hands
Running from a punk green three inch man
Well that’s not the way I wanna live my days
I gotta pack in all the joy I can


Jiminey Cricket’s got nothin’ on me,
I’m running with a fever
And I’m skippin’ over seas
There ain’t a thing good or bad with me
I’m alright baby
Baby I’m alright


I gotta pity on all the girls
Bowing to a king of the world
Takin’ the mold of ladies with branded curls
And with my kitchen spoon in hand
I’m gonna poke ‘em till they understand
Well that’s not the way I wanna live my days
I gotta pack in all the joy I can

 

TAKE ME DOWN

They say when the light comes calling
I’ll break the words that left with you
I feel for the wonder girl
That still you bow unto

Now I’m here all a glow
And breathing stains of what we knew
We belong in an undone story
But this is all I can do

You want love
I don’t need it
It’s all wrong but take me down
Take me down with you

You wait for the hollowed hour
To fill my glass with sullen pink
And I stand fumbling and weary
And raise my hand to take this drink

(chorus)

Now this place
Feels like home
Where sunken we unfold
Such a lair
We’ve not a prayer
And do just what we're told

DIMESTORE KAZOO

Well come on up Joe
And play your tune
Blow us away with your Dimestore Kazoo
You know you can do this better than me
I hear your row, row boat is gonna set us free
You might be drunk as balls
But you can pull this off
Cause when you get up here babe
It don’t take no chops

But I’m not here to be your clown
To turn your crap ass day around
I’m not here to be your slave
Oh, it ain’t my fault if you haven’t been laid
I just came down to sing some tunes
And maybe throw back a whiskey or two
So here’s the rub and listen clear
Your shit life
Ain’t my problem dear

Poor old Joe
I made him mad
He wanted a fast song and I played sad
Did my dumb ass love song leave you in the muck
Well the thing is Joe I don’t give a fuck
Cause you know what you’d get from other chick singers like me
A night of break up songs and pain and misery

And I’m not here to be your clown
To turn your crap ass day around
I’m not here to be your slave
Oh, it ain’t my fault if you haven’t been laid
I just came down to sing some tunes
And maybe throw back a whiskey or two
So here’s the rub and listen clear
Your shit life
Ain’t my problem dear
