LYRICS

Mexico & Me

 

Heading down the Baja Sur one-way

Todos bound
Gonna meet some friends along the way

Been too long

I been living where the sun can’t see

It’s time for Mexico & me

Found a place where friendly was the way
The locals played
Spent my days dropping into waves

Endless days

Watch the sun melt down into the sea
Only Mexico & me

Sha la la la la we go
There ain’t no rush in Mexico

No lo necesito rapido

Quiero mucho sol

Head into the city for supplies

Cheap mexi-brown
Lost track of Fuzzy
And the boys were Cabo drowned

I smoked my mind but stayed up to see

A little Mexico in me

Sha la la la la we go
There ain’t no rush in Mexico

No lo necesito rapido

Quiero mucho sol

Sha la la la la la we go
There ain’t no rush in Mexico

No lo necesito rapido
Me gusta mucho sol

Time to go back home
But my plane is broken down

So I head out on the town
A little too free
Tequila got the best of me

Good time Mexico & me

Little Mexico & me
Only Mexico & me

Good ‘ol Mexico & me

Sweet Cheeks

I’m so sad today 

Can’t write another sad song

Stood there crying in the street

Set my phone on the sidewalk

 

Sweet Cheeks is what we called him

Smiling everywhere he went 

Shotgun rifle and a will I cannot match 

Is what it took all it took

 

Over the willow trees and the stubble field 

The poplars see what the wind has freed 

As your ashes turn to dust 

 I won’t forget the times we laughed and smiled

Though it’s been awhile I still remember 

And I still believe that one day soon

I’ll see that smile again 

 

Little sister with her eyes so bright 

Man that laugh could tear you down 

Locked the front door and pulled the trigger

While grandma cried we all cried  

 

Over the willow trees and the stubble field 

The poplars see what the wind has freed 

As your ashes turn to dust 

I won’t forget the times we laughed and smiled

Though it’s been awhile I still remember 

And I still believe that one day soon

I’ll see that smile

 

Golden fields turn grey 

Seasons take all they have gave  

Big Ol' World

 

I’ve been a distance in this world that’s full of sin
Been to places that I thought would never see my face
Or hear my name
I’ve been a winner when the lights were shining bright
Been a loser and I’ve stumbled through the night alone

Far from home
This big ol’ world keeps turning ‘round

I’ve had the comfort of a woman by my side
Seen the flash of light that comes before you die

I’ve held precious ground

This big ol' world keeps turning 'round 

There’s some things I’ve witnessed

I can’t seem to get out of my mind

For the life of me through all this talk

And all these queries

Everyone dissecting theories
No matter what the question is I try

I simply cannot find a reason why

I’ve cursed the angels when I couldn’t see the light

I’ve praised the devil I’ve mistaken wrong for right

I’ve wept on holy ground

This big ol' world keeps turning 'round 

On My Own

 

I admit 

Never thought I’d fall the way I did 

Standing there 

Magical summer in the rain and thunder

The small town 

Laughed aloud in the hours of the dawn

I loved you 

Mountains crumble as a river cuts right through 

Into the soul 

I’d never felt that way before 

And when he called

 

I would stay

‘Til the morning comes

I must go on my way

I will go 

Into the blowing snow and cold

On my way on my own

 

Winter passed

Darkness fading

And the sun is back at last

Rivers flow

Green grass is blowing 

Oh so sweet

And all the smells

Bring me back to the place I left you

I could have changed

 

I would stay

'Til the morning comes

I must go on my way

I will go 

Into the blowing snow and cold

On my way on my own

I would stay 

Morning will come 

Heavy snowflakes falling down on me

I will go 

Blowing snow and cold

On my way on my own

 

 

Set Me Free 

Take this burden off of me

So I can breathe
I don’t know what to do
I don’t know what to believe

Whisper of the truth

Brings me to my knees
If you want the best for me

Then set me free

My legs are dying from just
Standing with these shackles

On my feet In the crowded street
Let me run flat out
And feel the open air against my skin
I wanna live again

And say a prayer for me
As I step out
I may lose everything
I still have doubt
The air beneath my wings

Rejuvenates my strength

If you really care for me

Then set me free

My legs are dying from just
Standing with these shackles

On my feet In the crowded street
Let me run flat out
And feel the air against my skin
I wanna live again

I know I’m just a fool

I've broken all the rules
If you’ve not forgotten me

Then set me free

Love is all I’ve got
I know it’s worth a shot

If you still believe in me

Then set me free

Melissa's Song

True love will you show
When darkness rules my world

I'm all alone
Will you calm the storm

Washed away gone
Silence remains

Time goes so slow
When air won't reach my lungs

Not breathing in at all
Darling where have you gone

I won't cry
You won't let me with those eyes

Hold my head high
My love I miss you

Where to from here
My dreams had just come true

This cannot be real
A shredded hallelujah

When the sky opens

I'll climb through

Lay in the clouds

Next to you

Worry

Worry would you pardon me 

I’m going for a walk

I don’t wanna listen

I don’t want to talk 

Sure you’ve got your reasons 

Saying what you do 

I just need to clear my head of you

‘Cause I know you won’t go away 

 

Worry when I’m sleeping 

Worry when I wake 

Worry when I’m at my job

An’ when I play

Worry… worry my life away 

I would say you’re driving me insane 

 

I’m running from a ghost in the night 

Fear has crippled me 

Now I can’t fight 

Lay off me your tongue like a knife 

I know the truth you’re all lies

Everything you say

 

Being scared is necessary 

Danger I must flee

Worry is just pointless

And will be the death of me 

 

I’m running from a ghost in the night 

Fear has crippled me 

Now I can’t fight 

Lay off me your slick talkin’ lies 

 

I’m running from a ghost in the night 

Fear has paralyzed me 

I can’t get right 

Hesitation cost me the light  

I know the truth is everything’s fine 

And I’m alright 

I’ll be just fine 

Get It Right

Spin me round and round

On the merry-go
I like the way the world

Blurs around me as I go

Leave it all behind

Spin me out of time
If I could walk away
Well I would have left by now

Ooh this time
I will get it right

Nothing left to say
I threw it all away
It was raining gold
I was soaked right to the bone

But I messed it up

Used up all me luck
If I had one more chance

I could be redeemed

Ooh this time
I will get it right

Now I’ve paid my dues
I got nothing left to prove

Give it everything
I have got to give

Just the other day
When the moment came

To turn a right from wrong

Stand up and be brave
I chickened out
Sold my courage out
Oh I’d rather get beat down

Than turn and run again

Ooh this time
I will get it right

Summertime Emotion

Days slow down

So I can take a breath and look around

Time stands still
Leaving me with nothing but myself

Laugh and cry
Summertime emotion in our eyes

Your sweet bare feet
Walking like an angel next to me

And I feel 

The summer sun upon my skin it warms me

And I dream

That everybody loves me
Summertime emotion turn me on

Saturday
Watch the river take my cares away

Girls and cars
Adrenaline is rushing to my heart

And I feel

The summer sun upon my skin it warms me And I dream

That everybody loves me
Summertime emotion turn me on

Laugh Out Loud 

Mister, mister, mister 

Could you please tell me the time 

I’ve been waiting, waiting, waiting 

Right here and I’m losing my mind 

Maybe, maybe, maybe,

 It’s all up in my head

And my baby, baby, baby 

Will come soon around that bend 

 

When it all 

Comes crashing down, down, down

Do my best to laugh out loud 

 

Watching, watching, watching 

For the right turn in the road

Tell me, tell me, tell me 

What’s the best that way I can go 

 

When it all 

Comes crashing down, down, down

Do my best to laugh out loud 

 

You say it’s just a lie 

Everything’s alright 

I can’t see.. 

Lately I am wakening 

 

Listen listen, listen

To the wise words in the breeze

It’s so crazy, crazy, crazy 

What the hell is going on 

 

When it all 

Comes crashing down, down, down

Do my best to laugh out loud 

When this world 

Has got me down, down, down 

Do my best to laugh out loud 

Star Bright

Sun comes up the Rockies

Lights the northern sky 

Across the windy prairies

From the Nova Scotia tide 

 

The girl in Costa Rica

From the Venezuelan hills

Coast of Argentina 

Through the South African swells

 

The highest peak in Sweden 

North Atlantic breeze

Russia down to China 

And the Indonesian seas

 

Star bright I 

I watch you shine

Star bright my 

One friend through the night 

 

Benny in Australia 

A heart ten miles wide 

People in New Zealand

They always make me smile 

 

Paddle out in Fiji

Warm transparent sheen

Lost in Polynesia

South Pacific dream

 

Star bright I 

I watch you shine 

Star bright my 

One friend through the night 

 

Back across the water

Of the Southern Georgia straight 

We all share the same sky 

And the night is getting late 

Carry On

Heaven knows
We can’t get it right
My girl can’t sleep
And I know
The headlines got her wired

Oh we’re tired
And need some peace

When I heard about the trails

Across the sky
I rolled my eyes
When I listen in the wind

She whispered sweet

Something is not right

Do you remember
Back through September
The way that I could hold
My head up high
You’re my witness
You know it’s never been like this

Please help me to be strong
And carry on

There I go again
Chasing vain
Chasing the dream
This ruthless corporate tyrant

I’ve let take the wheel

Is killing me

It’s killing me

Carry on...

Do you remember
Back through September
The way that I could hold
My head up high
You’re my witness
You know I've never been like this

Please help me to be strong
And carry on

We Can Fly 

This time last year I said
I was gona be somebody
Play my fingers to the bone
Make a better world for me and you

Girl the time has gone
Still I ain’t nobody
Wipe these teardrops from my eyes

Wet your lips move your hips

Maybe I was wrong
Thinkin' the world owed me somethin'

Where’s my kiss from the sky
Pot of gold a waitin’ on me

Now it seems to be
She don't owe me nothin'
She give all day long don't whine none

She don't cry time I give her back

Forget the words to say

They mean nothin’ anyway

We're all lost in the night

Stay with me girl I believe

We Can Fly

Time has come

To stand in the light

People falling down

A world burning
And I, I must be strong

Still I go on
Rain pushin’ me down
Can't see where I'm goin’
I don't know who I am
Why can't I be like you
Smilin’ and a jumpin’
Throwin’ sunshine from my eyes

Sexy body girl could make a man cry

Forget the words to say

They mean nothin’ anyway
In our heart we know what’s right

And love will set us free
You and I

We Can Fly

Dream Catcher

Dreaming all I know 

Dreaming something more

Sometimes you gotta 

Walk after a run 

Don't judge me if I'm crawling 

I'm chasin'

 

Dreams never give up on them 

Dreams don't hold me down 

 

Broken I'm not tired of trying 

Trying think I'd be there now 

Don't stop 

Battered heart's still beating 

Your time is coming soon

I'm chasin' 

 

Dreams never give up on them 

Dreams don't hold me down 

Dreams endless pursuit goes on  

Dreams can come true 

 

I was a farm kid 

Kinda unruly

Once a pretty girl said 

"You're not that groovy"

I don't know what she did not see 

'Cause it seems to me 

This is how it be

She's still there 

Greying hair 

Ugly kids pissin'

 In their underwear  

And a dead beat dad 

I never been so glad 

I'm singing my songs 

And chasin' my

Tortured Soul

I can see it in your eyes
Every time we speak of things
That make you shine
Well I know you know that I know
You need to climb yourself
Up so high
Away from this sinkin’ dive
Shine that light bright
You were always there
No matter where and willing 
To help someone up

Lately you are the one
I can tell needs some help
Tortured soul

The tears come too easy now
An’ I know what it's like anyhow
To watch a strong
A full-grown man cry
And I've seen you
When you're goin' on
You got them moves
Like Jagger ‘till you come down
Now I met you there
And let's be fair you never
Left me on the ground

Lately you are the one
I can tell needs some help
Tortured soul

Feeling low
Lord knows I know
All it takes to stand
Is a helping hand

I will lift you up
Like you lifted me

Loser


Heaven knows

I’ve been searching all my life

To find somethin'
Heaven knows

The clock is winding down
I don’t have much time
 
Can you whisper

The secret to me dear
I’ll pay the highest price
If I’m a loser 

And my fate is sealed in stone
I’ll lift you up I’ll push you on
Can't bear to see you cry
 
Fear thee love

You cut me and you burn
Where skin is soft
Tie me up 
Hold me under 'till I pray 
I admit feels better

Than feeling nothin'

Can you whisper

The secret to me dear
I’ll pay the highest price
If I’m a loser 

And my fate is sealed in stone
I’ll lift you up I’ll push you on
Can't bear to see you cry


Hardened son

I've never seen you shy 
And I know you could
Restless eyes

Say all they ever should
A hero to me let me say 
I never told you 


Can you whisper

The secret to me dear
I’ll pay the highest price
If I’m a loser 

And my fate is sealed in stone
I’ll lift you up I’ll push you on
Can't bear to see you cry

Bleed

Blood don't hurt much 

Pourin' out my vein

I remember what came before

An’ it sure did sting 

Scars won't leave me I know

Memories outweigh pain 

So I take ‘em to go

 

Don't look at me 

Like you never seen someone 

Who likes to bleed

All fall down 

 

Blood flows 

When the heart beats most 

Give me some of that 

Sweet, sweet love 

I'll bleed my heart out

 

Broken glass on a windowsill

If a bird could speak

It just might tell 

Fools we are 

An’ the games we play 

A broken wing can't fly away

 

I'd tell that bird 

There ain't nothin’ good 

Don't hurt, no 

Take what's left 

And somehow make it work 

All fall down 

 

Blood flows 

When the heart beats most 

Give me some of that 

Sweet, sweet love 

I'll bleed my heart out

 

Life's a gift they say 

More like a loan it seems 

All fall down 

 

Ain't much changed since you left 

Pride got big probably best 

I can't cut you with my words 

A knife blade to an open wound

It's worse much worse 

All fall down

All fall down 

 

Blood flows 

When the heart beats most 

Give me some of that 

Sweet, sweet love 

I'll bleed out

Darlin' I suppose 

Really no one knows 

Where we go 

When the blood runs out 

So let's bleed now 

Where we go 

When the blood runs cold 

So let's bleed our hearts out 

Highway To The Sun

Take the road from anywhere
Cross big river through the trees
Head out West straight for the sea
Wind cutting through my skin
Ridin’ rail and breakin’ trail
Watching for a place to sleep

Highway to the sun
Promise keeps me moving on this
Highway on the run
Hope that I can find myself a home

Just hit town my body’s tired
I need some love from anyone
I need a way to feel again
I’ve seen so many things
Different places changing faces
All ending up the same

 

Highway to the sun
Promise keeps me moving on this
Highway on the run
Hope that I can find myself a home

Up in Yellowknife I lost my self
That cold September

When the world came down
Grabbed my guitar and headed South
Dust blows off a rolling stone

Remember the good times we had
If I can laugh about it
I guess it ain’t that bad
Hello daddy I’m just passing through
Gotta keep moving on
Guess I’m a lot like you 

Darcy Black

I won’t cry when you call me names
I got friends in the big city
Blue jean jacket with ripped off sleeves
Ain’t nobody here can hurt me


My old man he will come for me
He’s been working some really big jobs
There’s some places we’re going to see
Said he’ll take me out to the mountains

This stupid town you know it ain’t my home
Just a place for momma to get better
You’ll be staying here and I’ll be gone
My daddy’s coming in his new pick-up

I won’t cry today
I’ll be on my way
Things will be alright
I won’t have to fight
When my daddy comes

Smokers corner on the recess brake
I like hanging with them older boys
Final pick for the dodge-ball game
Not that fast but I can throw hard
Fester says that he can beat me down
So I meet him out on the playground
Twice my size you know he ain’t that smart
I hit him hard before he puts his hands up

 

I won’t cry today
I’ll be on my way
Things will be alright
I won’t have to fight
When my daddy comes

There ain’t nothing that can hold me down
I don’t care what the teachers say
Do my best to make my daddy proud
Show you all I’m not afraid

Mon Chéri 

Hold on, breathe 

Remember the way it 

Used to feel 

Stirrin' in my blood 

The wind blows cold 

And I know 

I'm growing old 

You and me 

 

Mon Chéri

Don't stop fighting 

Just keep on lighting up 

Like you did for me 

I believe your heart is true 

It will pull you through 

The darkest deepest seas

Mon Chéri

 

Darkest days

Can't live forever 

When I know there’s some sunshine 

Left in your eyes 

Jealous eyes

I wanna do better I want to fly

I wanna go where the doves don't cry 

Leave it all behind 

Let the fear just die  

Patiently 

 

Mon Chéri

Don't stop fighting 

Just keep on lighting up 

Like you did for me 

I believe 

Your heart is true 

It will pull you through 

The darkest deepest seas 

 

Don't stop fighting

You are light 

 

Angel send

Someone to help my dear now

I’m alone

I need your wings to lift‘em out

 

I need an angel, please 

Fly to me.. I believe

Take my life

Take everything

A soul so bright

I'll do anything

Special One

Lookin' for something
I knew you were trouble
But I still had to see for myself

Then watch you go
Now I know that
Beauty's skin deep
Oh show me somethin' beautiful

There's ugliness in me

Flickering spirit
Could you see it coming

These broken dreams

Seem so far gone
It hurts to think about

Dry your eyes
Wounds will heal
Look to the sky
You are loved
You are aspecial one, special

I could give you money
You could spend it
On useless shit that no one needs

Poisons everything
Where's the feeling
You selfie monster
While they're all sipping plastic love

I need something real

Dry your eyes

Wounds will heal

Look to the sky
You are loved
You are a Special One

Music is my medicine

Turn it up drink it in

Music is my medicine

I'm healing, healing

Music is my medicine

Turn it up drink it in

Music is my medicine

I feel it, feel it

Doesn't matter 

how it all ends 

oh I touched something beautiful

you are a special one 

Reality

I’m the skid kid with the bottom lip

Jogging pants high

Rubber boots make me trip

Want your fashion queen ya best walk away

 

All the city kids seemed so cool

Girl a country boy ain’t no fool

I can catch your food light your fire

Evolve your mind take you higher

 

Reality is sweeter than dreams

We bleed that’s what makes it sweet

 

Yeah walk it to me walk it to me

Run it to me give it to me

Take it to me push it to me

Squeeze it in me leave it on me

Lay it on baby

I wanna feel your love  

Don't pretend you cannot be

Flesh and blood

Wretched I can see

You love it all just like me

 

Reality is sweeter than dreams

We bleed that’s what makes it sweet

 

One two three we both can see

I know you an’ you know me

Let’s go dancing in the pale moonlight

One two three we both are free

I'll show you the best of me

Take it down by the firelight  

Dirty Water

Restless weight on my mind

All these lies 

Money bereft of me 

Cancer and creed   

How long must we cry 

Cry, cry, cry, a river  

 

I don't know

If I'll find my way home

Dirty water sinkin' me slow 

Any deeper now I'm gone 

 

Sickness lay me down 

Toxins all around 

Relentless suppression of truth 

Deep state rule

How long must we cry 

Cry, cry, cry, a river 

 

I don't know

If I'll find my way home

Dirty water sinkin' me slow 

Any deeper now I'm gone 

I'm gone.. 

 

Freedom what's that mean to me

Can I live that way 

In a world not that free

Freedom what about society 

Ain't that the best for me 

So I can eat and work and sleep  

And eat and work and sleep

 

Old man river got the look in his eye

Shivers down the length  

Of a bold mans spine 

He'll take you to the filthy River-Jordan 

And cleanse your soul  

Old man river won't stand by 

Gazing idly yonder as a blind man lies 

Lyin' to the Mother Mary  

Sucklin' er goddamn soul

Lyin' to the Mother Earth 

Gave us a place called home   

Feels So Good 

Feels so good
When I am happy
See the sunshine in your eyes
Distant moon and changing seasons know

The rhythm of my life

Take the torch my young friend
You won't believe how bright it glows

Hurry now the flame burns swiftly
Oh that's the way it goes

Burn, burn, burn so bright, bright
I want to spread, spread, spread the light

To see you smile
Makes the darkness melt away

In the morning light
Our differences they fade
Feels so good

A million stars in your laugh

Broken hearts you must mend
As the wind she gets settled down

This shall come and go

Burn, burn, burn so bright, bright
I want to spread, spread, spread the light

To see you smile
Makes the darkness melt away

In the morning light
Our differences they fade
Feels so good

To see you smile
Makes the darkness melt away

And it don't take much
Just a warm embrace

Feels so goods

Fine Life 

Baby oh hear my words

Feel the song rockin’ slow

Lately I felt the call
In us all freedom

And I know it ain’t right
Actin' like a cancer
And I know nothing goes as planned

But this time man I’ve seen the light

It’s a fine life
Walking tall
Laying it all
Out on the line
It’s a fine life
When the chips are down

Down on the ground

And I feel at home

I miss you momma
We had times
The hardest times
Weren’t that bad
Pappa did the best he could
Took nothin’ and squeezed it good

Showed a boy what love can do

Girl I’m still here with you

It’s a fine life
Walking tall
Laying it all
Out on the line
It’s a fine life
When the chips are down

Down on the ground

And I feel at home Home

 

 Home, I am home

Time

Trying hard to remember
As the days go by
No one likes growing old
All these crazy things around me
As the world unfolds people dying

I ain't waiting on an answer
To turn the world around
When she's calling out my name
I ain't waiting on a angel
To come and save us all
I'll safe myself

Time lives in the valley
Where the sun don't shine
I've been there too long
Time restless and hungry
Gnawing on my bones
Wearing me down

Sometimes it really helps me
Rise above the past
When I mess things up real good
Other times when I am lonely
Or at my very worst
You just laugh

 

Time lives in the valley
Where the sun don't shine
I've been there too long
Time restless and hungry
Gnawing on my bones
Wearing me down

Watch the seasons
As they come and go
Summer short and winter long
In the moment
I can be at one and
Let time go on its own

Namaste

Downtown place I go
Little class called flow
I know the aim is stillness
But I'm losing control

I'm in love with the yoga instructor
Killing me with those moves
Namaste me long as you can
'Cause I know
After sixty I must go

Deep breathin' got me dizzy
I'm soaked right through
Ain't just me
Watchin’ her groove
All the girls too

I'm in love with the yoga instructor
Killing me with those moves
Namaste me long as you can
'CauseI know
After sixty I must go

I'm not on time

Every time
I hope you see
I'll be there

When you need
