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

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

Shadowboxer

I am a shadowboxer of distinction

But I know I’ll never win

Going toe to toe with my reflection

Is bound to do me in

 

Yet I step into the ring again

Think I’ll box another round

Every time you leave me hanging

Each time you turn me down

 

It starts with second guessing

All that stuff that echoes in my head

And soon enough it escalates

Till I’m fighting me instead

 

Yes I’m just a shadowboxer

Throwing punches in the air

Landing knockout blows on nothing

Just grasping straws that never were

 

My arguments are all inside

The dialogue is pointed

The things I did I now regret

And too many disappointed

 

I am a shadowboxer of distinction

But I know I’ll never win

Went toe to toe with my reflection

And its left me all done in

Moment

It was a moment

Just another moment

On a regular day

It must have been this moment

Cuz’ they’re all the same

It must have been this moment

Cuz’ it’s when I saw you

And that moment

That moment that I saw you

Wasn’t just the same

Our eyes locked, when you saw me

Our eyes locked as I looked at you

Our eyes shone as something new

Blew away the cobwebs

Blew away the past

And even though there was lots of folks

Around us, moving here and there

It was concentrated

Just you and me

As we gazed and looked

Into each other’s eyes

And sighed a thousand sighs

Said hello, goodbye

Even as we recognized

A synchronicity of mind

But we left that all behind

Returning to today

Leaving adventures untried

Questions never sprung

Goodbye before it’s done

It’s done
