Little Brown Rooster

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Calling for his little hens

Singing that he wants to play

He struts and dances

They dance away

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

As nighttime falls

Things fade to black

That hen house is hopping

Like a jumped up Cadillac

Little brown rooster

Don’t sing the blues at night

He’s too busy dancing

With those hens and getting tight

Little brown rooster

Don’t wake up at dawn

He only gets up at half past jazz

With a quiet kind of yawn

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Little brown rooster

Sings the blues all day

Clear

Clear

 

I’ve got to clear my mind

I’ve got to cleanse my soul

I need to heal my heart

If the truth be told

I need to quell the voices

That echo in my head

I need to stop each passing thought

Just empty out instead

Just take a breath

Then blow it out

Remember how to really be

Accept each moment gracefully

I’ve got to clear my mind

I’ve got to cleanse my soul

I need to heal my heart

If the truth be told

Maybe

Maybe I’ll never touch you

Maybe we’ll never meet

But tonight we’re together babe

Tonight when we’re asleep

‘Cuz I’ll meet you in my dreams

Tonight when we’re asleep

[instrumental]

You send me all those messages

You send me all those posts

I like you on Facebook babe

And I’d like you here tonight

But you are long away and unattainable

Even though it feels so right

Tonight when we’re asleep

[instrumental]

So maybe I’ll never meet you

Maybe we’ll never meet

But tonight we’re together babe

Tonight when we’re asleep

And tonight I reach out and I hold you

With my words and with my mind

Tomorrow is a promise

We will answer, both in kind

Voices

Disembodied voices

Talking back and forth

Don’t ever really know you

But that’s not the point

We intersect ideas

Toss the ball back and forth

We come from the south

We come from the north

We hook up on Facebook

And chat back and forth

Post comments with innuendo

And flirt shamelessly

We’re disembodied voices

Talking back and forth

Don’t ever really know you

But that’s not the point

We strip away the pretense

Pull back the veil

Stand naked at the window

It’s all revealed

We’re disembodied voices

Talking back and forth

Don’t ever really know you

But that’s not the point

So I keep on posting everything

That comes into my mind

Just waiting for the hook that might

Reach out and make you mine

We’re disembodied voices

Talking back and forth

Don’t ever really know you

But that’s not the point

Perfect

A perfect view

From a perfect spot

But I’m here alone

Where you are not

And I’ve got my freedom

On the rising tide

Got my hopes and dreams

That a pin could pop

 

That’s when I remember

The way you looked

That’s when I remember

The strength it took

To move on

Past the bitter end

Swallow my defeat

And walk away again

 

A perfect view

From a perfect spot

I’m here alone again

Where you are not

 

So I hunker down

In the bitter wind

Put one foot in front the other

‘Til the corner’s turned

 

It’s a perfect view

And a perfect spot

I’m here alone again

Where you are not

Blank Page

Another blank page

Another weary day

Another day without you

Anyway

 

And now it really hits

As the train whistle calls

I hear your name

As the thunder roars

 

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

 

I heard you moved

Into somewhere new

Threw our life away

Hooked up with someone who

 

Shook up your sense of self

Got you off that dusty shelf

Lives a life that’s really flash

But that’s not where your soul is at

 

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

 

And I love you anyway

Even though you went away

You left me for a better chance

Cut me off with just one dance

 

I fell down, I admit I cried

Just a foolish man

Who cheated and lived a lie

Just an ordinary man

 

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

 

Girl come on home to me

Give another chance to we

Cuz you and I make something else

Together we are more than just ourselves

 

With you I love

With you I thrive

You make me laugh

And without you I’m less than half

 

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

 

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

Girl, why did you go away

You said you’d always stay

With You

I want to get hot and wet

With you

Surrender to the force

To the current

With you

Plunge into the melt

And float and drift

Getting roasted

Even as we chill

With you

I want to run the rapids

Bouncing off the rocks

With you

I want to drift past gardens

Then along into the forest

With you

I want to get hot and wet with you

Lie back and let the river carry us away

I want to get hot and wet with you

Lie back and let the river carry us away

I want to get hot and wet with you

Lie back and let the river carry us away
