A Little Piece of Happiness

Ain't it crazy how people change
Just when you thought you'd seen it all
They come back and show you more

And it's crazy what stays the same
You thought you were moving on
But here you are still so stopped

Ain't it crazy what makes us sane
Crazy what makes us sane
Just a little piece of happiness
A litle peace, a happiness
A little piece of happiness

Ain't it crazy what people say
Time heals everything
You'll be a stronger man

And it's crazy when you look their way
We're standing on moving ground
And they don't even understand

Crazy's like this everyday
Crazy's like this everyday
Crazy's like this everyday
Without a little piece of happiness
A little peace a happiness
A little piece of happiness

It's crazy what people see
If you don't act just right
If you don't look just right

Ain't it crazy what comes your way
Just when you've given all you have
Well here comes one more chance

Crazy's like this everyday
Crazy's like this everyday
Crazy's like this everyday
Without a little piece of happiness
A little peace a happiness
A little piece of happiness


Make It Right

Honey, I don't want to ever lose you now
We can talk about it for the hour
And make a mark

Honey, there's so much I haven't even said
But if you hang around for a while
I'll tell it all

Never say never now
Cause we don't know the time
Never say never
Cause all we do it try

Honey, as a friend I think you need to know
I got a funny kinda way to show
Just how I feel

Honey, there's so much I think I need to know
I want to find it won't you help me know
Just how you feel

Never say never now
Cause we don't know the time
Never say never
Cause all we do it try

Honey, I think we need a little lovin' too
I got a find a way to get to you
And make it right


Yellow River

Climbed ten times today
Just to fall, all over again
I asked myself to be quick
I know it won't last this beating heart

Yeah this river gonna break
Yeallow River gonna break
Yeah this river gonna break me

Crawling my way across this ocean
Breaking my back for devotion
Yellow river
Crawlin' my way across these waves
Lookin for bodies, someone to save me
Yellow river

I found no one to blame here
Just this tide, rolls on and one
Swallowing the days here maybe this time
We know better than wrong

There's nothin' left to hate here
I had my chance
I think there's more than faith heals
I took my choice

Yeah this river gonna break
Yeallow River gonna break
yeah this river gonna break me

Crawling my way across this ocean
Breaking my back for devotion
Yellow river
Crawlin' my way across these waves
Lookin for bodies, someone to save me
Yellow river


Good Hearted Girl

You're a good hearted girl
In a serious world
Where no one belongs
You're a good hearted man
Never came with a plan
Just an honest word
In a dishonest world
Born on the 4th of a lie
Never blinked never cried
Walked out into life

With nothin' but your beating heart
Nothin' but your bleeding heart
One time round there's no second start
Nothin' but your beating heart

So we travel the world
Making sense of the words
New feelings come
Old feelings go
Come back around
With little to show
But a crooked smile
On a crooked face
Well this is what we see
Cause this is what we made
And we leave with

Nothin' but our beating hearts
Nothin' but our bleeding heart
One time round there's no second start
Nothin' but our beating heart


Forever

Waited forever
For you to show
Where hides your true colours
Where hides your soul
I'm longing to find you
I'm willing to hold
Your hands by your side
Afraid to fold

You look so certain
You feel so cold
I've seen that smile now
On faces before
A mask of deception
You hold so close
Hides your true feelings
Young eyes are old

Waited forever....


Distractions

You were friendly with a smile
I needed warmth that night
I needed shelter I was cold
How could I tell how could I know
You had steps underground
You picked them out you knew them well
And I was blinded by the sight
Of a face I'd known before
A different place a different life
But those smiles, never lie

I'd been on this road so long
I was just looking for a friend
To share the load to sing this song
Ohhh.....
We changed our names we chased the days
Motherless we faked our ways
Tempted by the place we loved
We slept for days under the sun
Seeking out some better ways
We lost our way, so fast
And we were done..

Now we spend each others days
In wonder what ever became
Distance always makes a case
Further apart, too close to say
Some truths are never said
Some distractions take the place
Where lovers once played
No winners, no losers
Only love...

Love...Love...Love...


Just for Tonite

Just bring a smile
For I am easily pleased
Just for tonite, these are simple needs
I'll bring the wine, we won't beg borrow steal
We'll keep it real

So I'll keep this night
Cause it's a comfort to me
To know I found
Just what I need
Everything shines
So I, I feel what I see
And I see it real

Come now take what you need
Tell me, whisper to me
And hold out, yeah hold out
Just for tonite....


A New Moon Today

There is no pleasure in this pain
It seems to be all the same
I kept it from you
You gave it to me

There is no light left in this dark
It seems to be all around
I held it at bay
You brought it to ground

I've had all that I can take
But you say you've got more
Well take it away
There's a new moon today

A new moon today

I'm a little out of time
A little out of step
I'm dancin' around
Like a fool headed clown
I've had one too many falls
Next time I'm stayin' down
You could call it escape
Yeah, well there's a new moon today

A new moon today
A new moon today
There's a new moon today

Casting a light on this old forgotten soul
Bringing you back to where you once were shown

Where there's a new moon today
A new moon today
There's a new moon today
There's a new moon today
There's a new moon
There's a new moon today...


Alibi

When I'm with you I feel safe
I feel a womans arms around me
I feel a mothers arms around me

I''ll take it with me when I go
I need a womans love around me
I need a mothers love around me

This is all I've ever known
This is all I have been shown

Come on be my alibi
Come on sing with me right through the night
Come on be my alibi
Come on lets make this story end just right

I'll take my chances I won't leave
I'll stay right here beside you
Looking far into horizon
We'll take it slowly day by day
Well there's a million different reasons
To give up what you believe in

This is all I've ever known
This is all I have been shown

Come on be my alibi
Come on sing with me right through the night
Come on be my alibi
Come on lets make this story end just right


Bourbon Smiles

Friends come and go
This land is never still
Still we wait on something
Something to begin

Someone that you love
Turns to someone that you hate
The distance in between
There's no distance in your heart

We cannot hide
These bourbon smiles
There's nothing left
To leave behind
We cannot hide these bourbon smiles

Tears that may fall
Turn to rivers that may run
Making way for something
You know something has begun

Shifting in your soul
Breaking your resistance
Cleaning out this space
A place for someone new

We cannot hide
These bourbon smiles
There's nothing left
To leave behind
We cannot hide these bourbon smiles

The True Riches Of Life


Miss California

I’ll make you remember..
I’ll make you remember..

If this was the last time, Would you let me know.
If this was the last night, Would I see you go, don’t answer

Answer yes and it feels like silence,
Answer yes and it feels like silence

I’ll make you remember,
I’ll make you remember

If I miss you this morning, Would it be so bad.
I found I’m only mortal, Is it all we have.
If I miss California, If I miss California, If I miss California, If I miss California,

Answer yes and it feels like silence,
Answer yes and it feels like silence, like silence..
Ooooo…Like silence…


Time

Harder now to tell you, Just easier to know,
The reasons why I’m leaving are those, Reasons I must go.
Your face I have imprisoned, Deep inside my mind,
And I cannot outrun it, The reason is just..

Time, well it’s getting away from me,
And I’m feeling like I can’t see,
The wrong from the right,
I, well I just don’t know where to be,
And there’s too much inside of me,
That I cannot find, I cannot find..

Harder now to tell you, Just easier to know,
A place is where a face is just a, Picture in the snow.
The sidewalk is an easy friend, To take with me tonight,
So I shudder from the cold, And hope that this is not my,

Time, well it’s getting away from me,
And I’m feeling like I can’t see,
The wrong from the right.
I, well I just don’t know where to be,
And there’s too much inside of me,
That I cannot find...


Come Around

Remember me I’m still around,
I’m far too young to face this down,
It’s taken over and it’s
tickin’ over and I,
Well I’m gonna fight it now,
And I might just come around..

I’m takin’ care, I’m takin’ stock,
It’s not the land that time forgot,
I’m findin’ all the reasons,
To bring me to seasons,
And now the leaves are fallin’ brown,
And I might just come around…

I’m findin’ out there is no break.
It’s just a life I have to make,
A little space for feelin’,
A little tired of stealin’,
And now I feel I’ve come around,
And I’m gonna leave…
A little space for feelin’,
A little tired of stealin’,
And now I feel I’ve come around
Now I feel life comin’ round.
Now I feel I’m comin’,
Now I feel life comin,
Now I feel I’ve come around
And I’m gonna leave this town…

Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on, Come around…


Learning Curve

I might have known,
You were a lucky star,
How was I to know,
You couldn’t go that far,
And I might have said,
Girl you’re a love struck,
And I might have stood,
Still on a learning curve..

You said a lot of good things,
You did a lot of bad things,
I could have been the one,
To only love you, true..

If I’m out of love,
I’d never live that long,
If I’m out of touch,
I couldn’t go that far,
If I got to change,
You stole a lot of sun,
But I got the gold..

You said a lot of good things,
You did a lot of bad things,
I could have been the one,
To only love you, true,
(repeat)

To only love you…


90 Miles An Hour

My mind is like a flower its open everyday,
90 miles an hour from august thru to may,
If only I could see you, if only I could say,
I’ll see you in December if the sunshine stays away,
If the sunshine stays away..

I got a lot of meaning it’s all wrapped up in hope,
A friend tells me she’s leaving she’s going it alone,
I don’t know what to tell her, I don’t know what to say,
I’ll see you in December if the sunshine stays away,
If the sunshine stays away, you think the sun will stay away,
I think the sun will stay away…

Hey yeah if the sunshine stays away,
Hey yeah if the sunshine stays away,
Hey yeah if the sunshine stays away,
Hey yeah..

Don’t let me down,
Don’t want you around,
Won’t let you down,
Don’t need you around,
Don’t let me down,
Don’t lead me around,
Don’t want you around,
If the sunshine stays away…


City Morn’

Woke up on a city morn’
You’ve lived for another one.
Moon only half way down,
So I slip on another clown,
And you’re the only one who knows,
I slip on another clown..

Woke up when you went away.
If you found a place you’d stay.
But I miss when you’re not around,
So I slip on another clown,
And you’re the only one who knows,
I slip on another,
Slip on another clown,
And you’re the only one who knows..


Ground Down

Surface tension hits the air,
But I don’t recognise the sound,
Everyone comes round to,
Open up a whole right in the ground,
And it’s only, just begun…

So I imagine every sound,
A place where I might come to ground,
Still everyone comes round to,
Pack away the whole that I have found,
And I might be trying,
Just to hard to run…

So put a sign on me,
Put a sign on me,
Put sign on me…

Claw the ground beneath my feet,
For I have lost the need to see,
Still everyone comes round to,
Find a way to steal what I am now,
And I might be dying,
But I’m having fun…

So put a sign on me,
Put a sign on me,
Put a sign on me…..

You ground me,
You ground me down,
You ground me,
You ground me down..


Stolen

There’s just a memory, of what we had,
Too much forgiving, for you to place your hand,
Count out the stars now, forever make a map,
Still a beginning, but why do you feel sad,
Why do you feel sad,
Why do you feel sad...

You can’t relive it, its time has come and gone,
Into the season, never meant to last,
Forgotten stolen, before the sun was gone,
But still I can hold it, so why do you feel sad,

So why do you feel sad,
So why do you feel sad...

Well it’s the way that you have made me know,
Yeah it’s the way that you made me know,
Well it’s the way you have made me know,

There’s just a memory, of what we had,
Too much forgiving, for you to place your hand,
Count out the stars now, forever make a map,
Still a beginning, but why do you feel sad,

Why do you feel sad,
Why do you feel sad...

Well it’s the way that you have made me know,
Yeah it’s the way that you made me know,
Well it’s the way you have made me know…


An Answer

Turned around before I saw you,
Caught me right between the eyes,
Wasn’t looking for nobody,
Just a friend, just a friend..

And a nice surprise, An answer..
A nice surprise, An Answer..

Happened well before it started,
Between the writer and defeat,
Sailed away just as I met you,
Never thought about a question..

Just a nice surprise, An answer…
A nice surprise, An answer..

This is my ever-changing weather,
These are the things that make me better,
This is my ever-changing weather,
These are the things that make me better…

Make me better…

A nice surprise, An Answer...


Wendy

I wrote down this song,
I thought you might want to learn it,
Well it’s not big on words,
But I can tell you that I meant it,
And it’s not quite a story,
And it’s not quite an answer,
But I remember when you said to me,
Hey, you didn’t want to be a dancer
You didn’t want to be a dancer

So pick up on this,
And put it to your memory,
And if someone asks you,
What do you do Wendy,
Recite this line for line,
And with all your good intention,
You say you learned this song cause
You didn’t want to be a dancer
You didn’t want to be a dancer

Yeah, hey yeah
You didn’t want to be a dancer
Ohhh no, you didn’t want to be a dancer

Wendy, Wendy,
Wendy, Wendy, Come on, Come on, Come on,
Wendy Come on now, Wendy…..

You didn’t want to be a dancer…
