Man In The park

Hey, talk to the girl cause
she’s good.
She’s a little misunderstood.
Talk to the girl
cause she’s good.
Hey, talk to the man cause
he knows,
Just how the story goes
Talk to the man that knows.
And I think you’ll find
that what he says
doesn’t seem that crazy
when your’e in his head
and I think you’ll see
that what he thinks,
makes a lot of sense
when you’re on the brink.
Hey, talk to the flower shop girl
She’s all alone in this world.
Talk to the flower girl.
Hey. Talk to the man in the park
He’ll tell you he’s lost the spark.
Talk to the man in the dark.

Star (I’m not stupid baby)

I go crazy with the way you are
You’re such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can’t I be you?
If I say I do, you will say you don’t
If I say I will, you will say you won’t
If I ask you out, I know you won’t come
I’m not stupid baby
I go crazy with the way you are
you’re such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can’t I be you?
If I call you up, you are not alone
If I stay too late, you won’t drive me home
If I ask you out, I know you won’t come
I’m not stupid baby
I go crazy with the way you are
You’re such a star baby
I go crazy with the way you are
Can’t I be you…?
In the morning and you’re fast asleep
I can see you smile, smile in your sleep
I’m not stupid baby

 End Of The Line

Four o clock in the morning,
just got home as it’s dawning
catch me now that I’m falling
end of the line
days go by in a hearbeat
Single life when it’s bittersweet,
Gotta get back on my own feet
End of the line
I don’t know how to solve it
Don’t know how to revolve it
I don’t know what to call it…
But end of the line
I don’t know how to break it
Don’t know how I can take this
I don’t know if I’ll make it
To the end of the line
I turned away from something real
I walked away from something good
Ten o clock in the evening
I don’t know what I’m feeling
Every day leaves me reeling
End of the line
Yesterday, and she calls me back
She let’s me know hust where
it’s
Harsh words for an insomniac
End of the line

Any Other Way

Let the mountains fall beside you
Let the road stretch out ahead
Let the stars revolve above you
Far avove your head
But is there any other way
to say what you say
Any other way
Cause if there’s any other way
To say the things you say
I can’t believe it has to be this way
Up until just yesterday
I was your sweet baby
Let the road stretch out before you
Let the stars revolve above
Let the mountains fall beside you
you’re supposed to be in love
But is there any other way
to say what you say
Any other way
Cause if there’s any other way
To say the things you say
I can’t believe it has to be this way
Up until just yesterday
I was your sweet baby
If your life is so hard to define
Let’s come back to it
And if your thoughts
tumble ‘round in your mind
Come back to it
Things will get better with time
And I know thats a wonderful line:
But things will get better with time

Grind You Down

I got news from my brother yesterday
I got news from my brother, hey hey hey
When they grind you down, into the ground
Yeah, there’s really no one to be found
I got news from my brother yesterday
He said, ha had seen you, seen you with her
When you grind me down, into the ground
I won’t ask for help, you’re not around
No one knows where the summer goes
Wait all year then the summer comes
Yeah the summer comes
I got news from my brother just today
He said, he’s really sorry, he make a mistake
When it grinds you down, into the ground
And you feel like sinking in ground
No one knows where the summer goes
Wait all year then the summer comes
Yeah the summer comes

———————————————————————-

Bottomless Pit

You say it wouldn’t work
It wouldn’t take
It wouldn’t do any good
It wouldn’t change a thing
And I being I
Can’t say much to deny it
but I’m stuck with an urge
to only have tried it
You say it wouldn’t do
It wouldn’t shake
It wouldn’t shake any waves
It wouldn’t be no use
And you being you
You know sure how to phrase it
And I being I
I just have to embrace it …
Don’t I
You say it wouldn’t breathe
It wouldn’t move
It wouldn’t stay in the groove
It wouldn’t stand a chance
You say it wouldn’t wash
It wouldn’t wear
it wouldn’t go anywhere
It wouldn’t do it for you
You say it wouldn’t float
it wouldn’t stick
I would sink like a brick
in a bottomless pit

———————————————————————-

Mountains

We don’t belong
here any longer
I won’t be surprised
If we’re out by the summer
I’ll always keep moving
Following you
Only the time
Only the time will do
Give me the time
To be with you
Mountains of time
I wish there could be
just mountains
You look at me now
A little bit older
It’s all in the eye
Of the beholder
And when I hold you
Nothing can feel so good
Only the time
Only the time will do
Give me the time
To be with you
Mountains of time
I wish there could be
just mountains
And like a student I learn
That what is hot, it will burn
And like a river I’ll turn
For no good reason
Only the time
Only the time will do
Give me the time
To be with you
Mountains of time
I wish there could be
just mountains
mountains…

Ocean Floor

Babe, it’s true
I’m talking about me as you
There’s a hole in the ocean floor
That I’m sinking through
Babe, it’s real
I’m talking about how we feel
All the pain that we’re going thru
Helps to keep it real
I know you from before
Do you think, I don’t?
I see you by yourself
Do you feel alone
Babe, it’s true
I’m talking about me as you
There’s a hole in the ocean floor
That I’m sinking thru
Babe, it’s high
I’m talking about about tie-dyed
There’s a hole in the polar-sky
I can see right thru
I love you one again
Don you feel I don’t
I want to take you back
Will you take me home
I want the sun to shine,
I want the sun to shine,
I want the moon to glow,
I want the moon to glow,
All the time

Everyone

Everyone can say they’re sorry
Everyone else but me
Everyone can have a good time
Everyone else but me
Everyone can laugh
Everyone can talk
Everyone can smile
And Everyone can walk
Everyone can make new friend
Everyone else but me
Everyone can have a bad year
I don’t have to disagree
Everyone can laugh
Everyone can need
Everyone can touch
And everyone can bleed
One fine day
Wrap your arms around me
One last time
Just pretend that I could
Be a part of your world
Everyone can say they’re sorry
Everyone else but me
Everyone can make a new start
Everyone else but me
Everyone else but me…

See What Becomes

I’m standing in a doorway
I can’t recall the day
A voice comes out from
nowhere
I hear somebody say
(like in a daze)
Ahh… see what becomes
I’m walking through a snowfall
I’m just a little kid
I’m going though some hard times
like many of us did
(I’m in a daze)
Ahh.. see what becomes
Ahh.. see what becomes of us

———————————————————————-

Break It Gently

Anybody could tell me baby
but…
I’ll wait
Anybody could tell me baby
but…
I’ll wail.
Cause when you say it you will
Say it nicely
And when you break it
You will make it gentle
You will,
Break it gently
You will,
Break it gently
You will,
Break it gently
You will,
Break it gently…
I could tune to the grapevine baby
but…
I’ll wait
Start listening to rumors maybe
but…
I’ll wait
Cause when you say it you will
Say it softly
And when you break it
You will make it gentle
You will;
Break it gently
You will;
Break it gently
You will;
Break it gently
You will;
Break it gently…

———————————————————————-

Tongue Tied

And that’s why
I’m tongue tied:
Your love is real
And thats why
I’m moon shy:
Your love is real
That’s how it feels
Some will say
Live today like there’s
No tomorrow
Some will say
Come what may
You just have to follow
But if your world
Comes tumbeling down
I will be right there
I will be right there
I will be…
Right there
And I won’t hesitate
I won’t make you wait
I will be there
And that’s why
I’m tongue tied
Your love is real
And that’s how it feels
Some will say
Live today like there’s
No tomorrow
Some will say
Come what may
You just have to follow
But if your world
comes tumbling down
I will be right there
Yes if the world just brings you down
I will be right there
I will be…
Right there
