Lyrics

IT’S A BIG WORLD THAT MADE US
SPINS AROUND JUST TO SHAKE US
DRAWN YOUR WAY I ANOTHER
AND WE COME BACK HERE TOGETHER

YOU HAVE THOSE DREAMS THAT DRIVE YOU
AROUND THE SUN AND BACK TO
WHERE THE STARS WANT YOU TO GO
YOU’LL COME BACK TO ME I KNOW

SOMETIMES THE MUSIC OWNS ME
I FORGOT WHAT I PLANNED TO BE
MY HEAD IS LIGHT THERE A FEATHER
AND I TRUST IT’S FOR THE BETTER

IT’S JUST THIS PATH THAT I’M ON
IT ALWAYS LEADS ME BACK HOME

WHERE THE STARS WANT ME TO GO
I’LL COME BACK TO YOU I KNOW

THIS LIFE JUST TOOK US FOR A RIDE
YOU’LL WIND UP BACK HERE AT MY SIDE

WHERE THE STARS WANT YOU TO GO
YOU’LL COME BACK TO ME I KNOW  

SEARCH FOR PEACE YOU’LL FIND IT
THAT’S YOUR WAY AND I LIKE IT
SOMETIMES AT NIGHT YOU’RE THINKING
I’M OUT LATE I’M DRINKING

WE RIDE THOSE DREAMS WE’RE ON
ABOVE THIS WORLD AND BACK HOME

WHERE THE STARS WANT YOU TO GO
THERE’S A SONG WHEN
THE WINTER WIND BLOWS
THAT JOURNEY OUT WILL TAKE US BACK HOME
YOU’LL COME BACK TO ME I KNOW

I KNOW THIS CITY BY THE OCEAN

I KNOW THIS CITY BY THE BAY

HENRY THE CAPE THEY LANDED

JAMES THE TOWN WHERE THEY STAYED 

 

A RIVER RUNS THRU

HORIZON TURNS BLUE     

ANOTHER CATCH OF THE DAY

 

CAUGHT THIS GROOVE THERE IN OLD TOWN

THE VIBES ALIVE IN GHENT TODAY 

THE BAND IS TIGHT ON THE BOARDWALK TONIGHT 

A NORTHEAST WIND’S IN MY FACE 

 

CALL IT TIDEWATER 

CALL IT HAMPTON ROADS

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

 

HR LIFE AIN'T SO EASY

NOTHING HERE IS MADE OF GOLD

WITH AN EYE ON THE RISING TIDE

WHE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

 

CALL IT SEVEN CITIES

CALL IT GREATER NORFOLK

CALL IT COASTAL VA

CALL IT TIDEWATER

CALL IT HAMPTON ROADS        

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

 

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY 

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY 

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

Lyrics

UPSTAIRS IN THE HEART OF TOWN
IN THE LATE NIGHT FOG THE SIRENS AROUND
LIGHTS BURN THERE
SOME FOLKS STILL CARE
                 
ANOTHER TRIP AROUND THE SUN
THIS CHAIN MIGHT COME UNDONE
THE LOVES GONE
SHE HAS MOVED ON
IT’S SO HARD TO LET GO
HE CAN’T LOOSE WHAT HIS HEART KNOWS
GOODBYE TONIGHT TO THE GHOST
 
EVERYTHING THERE MIGHT BE LEFT BEHIND
IT ALL LOOKS SMALL FROM HERE TONIGHT
THE MOON BROKE THRU THAT’S WHEN HE KNEW
 
HE LOOKS DOWN ACROSS THAT CITY
FROM UP HERE IT ALL LOOKS SO PRETTY
HE KNOWS NOT TO LOOK TOO LONG
SOMEWHERE THERE IS THE LOVE  
 YET TO COME
 
IT’S SO HARD TO LET GO
HE CAN’T LOOSE WHAT HIS HEART KNOWS
HELLO TOMORROW  
HE’S GONNA LET THIS GO
 GOODBYE TONIGHT TO THE GHOST

Lyrics

His car slid wide

The moon jumped up from the road

The rain moved out

It was clear and a little bit cold

Everything he loved

Rushed him all at once                       

He settled at the bottom of the hill

 

For a moment in time

His mind held the moment still

 

Part way numb she

Stared at the backyard pool

He’d gone once before

This time his car was full

The front was building in

She would breathe again

As soon as she found the will

 

Sometimes she’d just like not to feel it

Sometimes he’d like to let it ride

 

His gut went weak

The chief said we’re letting you go

Sorry for the sudden notice

But it came from somewhere above

He had to let it in

He would start again

As soon as he took that pill 

 

He had to let it in

He would start again

As soon as he found the will 

For a moment in time his mind held the moment still

For a moment in time her mind held the moment still

For a moment in time their minds  

Held the moment still

YOU TAKE ON YOUR END
I’LL HOLD UP MINE                      
MAYBE SOME WILL NOTICE
AND STAND UP IN LINE            
WE CAN’T DO IT ALL
WE CAN START WITH THE SMALL
WE’RE JUST TRYIN TO MAKE SOME
PEACE IN OUR TIME
 
EVERBODY’S SEARCHING
FOR THAT BIG REASON
ITS KEPT THIS WORLD SPINNING
AROUND ALL THE WHILE
ITS SO HARD TO KNOW IT
THE FEAR IS STILL SHOWING
WERE TRYIN TO BREAK THRU
ONE PIECE AT A TIME
 
I’LL HELP YOU WITH YOURS
WON’T YOU HELP ME WITH MINE
TOGETHER WE’LL MAKE SOME
PEACE IN OUR TIME
 
SOMETIMES WE’RE THINKING IT WOULD BE SO EASY         
MAYBE WE COULD JUST GO AND HIDE              
ITS NOT LIKE WE’RE GONNA SEE EYE TO EYE                            
BUT TOGETHER WE CAN BREAK THRU ONE PIECE AT A TIME                     
                                   
WE ALL KNOW COMPASSION
JUST LOOK AT OUR CHILDREN
IT CAN’T BE SO HARD
TO SEE ALL WITH THOSE EYES
IT’S OK TO STUMBLE
AND AVOID A LITTLE TROUBLE
WE JUST HAVE TO SEARCH OUT
SOME PEACE IN OUR TIME
 
TOGETHER WE CAN BREAK THRU ONE PIECE AT A TIME
YA, TOGETHER WE’LL MAKE SOME PEACE IN OUR TIME

Lyrics

I wanted you here for so long a time It was a joy when you came to this life My hope of you and who you will be Has already gone far beyond my dreams Jump in Nathaniel let’s go for a drive We’re on the ride of a lifetime Know that you belong and be glad that you are The love of generations has put you here now See as you look out at all the work of man The sacrifice of ages put this in your hand Here with your reason don’t second guess your role Or the mind you brought your story will be told Jump in Nathaniel let’s go for a drive We’re on the ride of a lifetime Come on Nathaniel I’ve waited here so long So glad you came come along I hope that you won’t fall down as much as I Your inclinations are one step beyond mine You won’t know me young know me at my heart And seek a thought of me long after we’re apart I will ease those lessons as father’s often do As sons always will you’ll stumble on a few Jump in Nathaniel let’s go for a drive You’re on the ride of a lifetime Come on Nathaniel I’ve waited here so long So glad you came come along

Lyrics

IT WAS EARLY IN HIS LIFE                    

THERE WAS A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION 

THINGS UNRAVELED FROM THERE      

WITH NO FURTHER RECONCILIATION

 

HE LOOKED TO FILL HIS WORLD 

WHEN HE FINALLY CAME OF AGE

HIS HEART WAS WIDE OPEN

THEY WENT JUST AS FAST AS THEY CAME

 

HE’S STILL WAITIN FOR HIS HARVEST OF LOVE

ONE COMPANION IS WHAT HE DREAMS OF      

HANDS IN THE GROUND EYES WATCHIN HIGH ABOVE

HE’S STILL WAITIN ON THAT HARVEST OF LOVE

 

HOPE IS ALWAYS IN SEASON

HE KEEPS HIS WISHES ALIVE

RAIN IS THERE TO REMIND HIM

LOVE CAN FALL FROM THE SKY                  

 

EARLY LESSONS RING IN HIM

HE KNOWS HE’S PART OF THE PLAN

HE WILL GAIN ALL WITH KINDNESS

HE KNOWS IT IS ALMOST AT HAND

Lyrics

 Early in the morning

Somewhere in the distance

You lay still to hear it

Something is sounding different                                                                        

Shining black and yellow   

Coming up your road

Kids are out there laughing

You got a dose of hope

 

You let your guard down

It was getting heavy

You had a hit of something

You’re tired of staying steady

You got used to it

There outside yourself

You didn’t notice when

You went somewhere else

 

For a long run

You were gone from

Your old piece of mind                                 

You let go and the world

Did not unwind  

 

Living in the future

A schedule on your head

Instead of falling back

You always spring ahead

You forgot the season

Winter is just like summer

You’re looking cool and

Your heart is getting warmer

 

Your mind was always spinning 

Now you are coming back in

 

You like your flowers

You keep them looking at you

They tell you something

I think I’ve heard it too

All the fruit will fall

To the ground one day

It’ll grow again

Without us anyway

 

You we’re thinking         

We’d be leaving        

Too many things in a bind 

You let loose and you

Looked in your mind

You let go and the  

World did not unwind

A COLD NIGHT IN DECEMBER

EVERYONE IS ON THE TOWN

HE STOPS IN TO WARM UP

AND CALM HIS SOUL DOWN

THE RADIO IS PLAYING

HOLIDAY SONGS

WITH EACH AND EVERY ONE

SOMEBODY SINGS ALONG

 

HE HEARS THE DJ SAYIN

I’M PLAYIN EVERGREENS

HOLIDAY FAVORITES

GUARANTEED TO PLEASE

EVERY TUNE HE HEARS

TAKES HIM BACK IN TIME

HE WANTS TO SING ALONG

WITH EVERY SINGLE LINE

 

DJ SPIN THOSE TUNES AGAIN

YOU CALL THEM EVERGREENS

VINTAGE SONGS THAT WARM OUR HEARTS

AND MAKE US WANT TO SING

 

HE TAKES A CHAIR BESIDE ME

OFFERS UP A TOAST

TO THE PEOPLE HE HAS KNOWN

AND WHO HE’S MISSED THE MOST

EACH COMES WITH A STORY

HEAR HIS PASSION RISE

HE TELLS ME OF THE FOLKS

WHO’VE COME INTO HIS LIFE

EVERY SONG REMINDS HIM

OF ONE MORE OLD FRIEND

WHO’S COME INTO HIS LIFE

AND GONE BACK OUT AGAIN

SOME ARE THERE FOREVER

BENDING LIKE THE TREES

HANGING ON IN WINTER

HE CALLS EM EVERGREENS

 

SOMETHING IN THE AIR TONIGHT

MAKES HIM WANT TO SAY

PEOPLE WE HAVE KNOWN BEFORE

ARE IN OUR HEARTS TO STAY

 

EVER ARE THE MEMORIES

IN SONGS ABOUT HIS LIFE

LOVE HAS MOVED ON

LOVE HAS SURVIVED

ITS LATE AS HE WALKS OUT

THERE’S NO ONE ON THE STREET

THE ONLY SIGN OF LIFE

ARE THOSE SAME OLD EVERGREENS

 

MISTER TELL YOUR TALES AGAIN

OF ALL THOSE EVERGREENS

VINTAGE LOVE THAT TOUCHED YOUR HEART

AND MADE YOU WANT TO SING

EVERGREENS EVERGREENS EVERGREENS

Lyrics

You were on the freeway

The sun was in my blinds

You drove across the bay

I opened up my eyes

You called from the beltway

I was on with tech support

You tried again from Edison

My battery ran short

 

Your laptop ran hot

You called to make it right

Routed to a guy

In New Delhi working nights

He said clean the drive

Turn it off and turn it on

Looking in your outlook

All your friends were gone

 

The world’s gotten small

We’re connected to it all

That six degrees of separation

Is just evaporating

 

You tried email

The routing failed

A message came back

Undelivered mail

You dialed up a friend

To see how he had been

A recorded voice said

Hi from Kevin

 

Oh, lets make some plans

Yeah, we’ll get some face time in

 

The invited friends

Were up for the night

They were cyber meeting

On the network site

Looking like our social life

Was hanging on a string

Finally face to face when

The phone began to ring

 

Everybody is jumping in

Love has come back in again

Lyrics

You heard about our friend

Suddenly he is gone

How could his light go out?

It was burning strong

 

He worked there on the stage

I caught them when he played

Out there in the light

You could hear him say

 

Play how you feel

Keep making it real

Just give us a song

This moment is almost gone

 

I won’t ask how you feel

I know it must be hard

When a friend is lost

Who can know your heart  

 

He always made them see

They were shooting stars

We liked to hear him say

Play just what you are

Could all the love I will hope to give Match the love I’ve held and taken away Regrets are out of mind But there floating just behind me It seems more simple that way these days This river’s deep and it’s forever wide Why don’t we know it by its true name? Anything goes as she cuts through her banks Something in us worn so smooth here remains Love is real and it’s sometimes sweet Dance in step once you finally learn to find it Fall from grace and then fallin back in love This love’s like none I’ve ever known yet I want to hear you Yeah and I want to know you too I want you to show it to me if I can Will all the hope I would love to give Match the hope I had and let get away Regrets are in my mind And there floating all around me And it’s not that simple this way these days Love is real and it’s sometimes sweet Dance in step once you finally learn to find it Fall from grace and then fallin back in love This love’s like none I’ve ever known yet

Lyrics

The feeling of showing love

Is upon us once again        

I want to find something nice

For my family and friends

Instead of searching for those things

Made halfway around the world

Something close from the local folks

Might thrill them even more

 

I’m looking around for something

Made right here in town

They say it’s kind of slow right now, but

Things will come around

 

Found a shiny stone from Sierra Leone

A trumpet from Taiwan

A sculpture from another culture, and

Running shoes out of Vietnam    

Sauvignon blanc made in south of France

And a space rock from beyond

And something I cannot describe from

Up the river Amazon

 

Drove my Asian car to the nearest farm

And asked them what was best

They said I was in luck today

Because everything was fresh

Here was mangos up from Mexico

Nutmeg from Nauru

Apples from the great northwest

And potatoes from Peru

 

I’m looking around for something

Grown right here in town

The farmers say they’re planting seeds

And they’re watering ground

It was time to turn the wind It was time to take a break Maybe it was the way I wore my Shirt the other day By the end of the evening Everything had changed You had gone on to love And I had gone away And you can’t choose who you love Or who you’ll lean upon With every turn someone’s touched And someone’s left alone Try if you want to To get me thru it all The hurt gets even harder to take As you cushion my fall Will your candles burn with him? Will they melt down and go dim? Will the morning lay new hope on your eyes? Will your thoughts of me turn bright? Was the way you came for me When I stumbled to the floor The way you came fast And the way you went slow All the things that held me To you all along Will leave a whisper on my lips Long after you’re gone

There’s all this ground to cover before we go And there’s little chance left to play the blues And the last few times someone laughed with me Was the last ten times I saw you When the chilled heart of day sends me back home And the glow of evening greets me at the door These times are like a bandage on my heart For a moment I can see what I came here for Walkin home I felt the ground shake beneath my feet I swore I heard the pounding ocean waves Lookin up just before I went inside The mystery there was the light shown from your face Sometimes dreamin we see what might Sometimes it lingers till the misty light What I hope will play just like a song Is how you’ll see in me as your day drifts to night Walkin home I felt the ground shake beneath my feet I thought I heard the pounding ocean waves Lookin up just before I went inside The mystery there was the light shown from your face

SANTA’S SLAY WAS A CHEVROLET

AND IT GOT CAUGHT IN THE SNOW

HE NEVER GREW A BEARD

JUST A FIVE O’CLOCK SHADOW

HE WORE HIS UNIFORM TO WORK

BUT IT WASN’T RED AT ALL

IT WAS SNOW WHITE IN THE SUMMER

AND KAKI IN THE FALL


WELL I MADE A LIST FOR SANTA

OF THINGS HEAVY ON MY MIND

LIKE A LITTLE RED BICYCLE

AND PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND

MY WISHES WERE ON HOLD AND SOON

THE HOLIDAYS WHERE GONE

THEN A BOX WAS ON THE PORCH

POSTMARKED VIETNAM


SANTA’S GONE

WHERE SANTAS GO

WHERE ITS ALWAYS WHITE

AND IT NEVER SNOWS

AND I WONDER

IF SANTA EVER HEARS

THESE WISHES I’M STILL WISHIN FOR

THIS TIME OF YEAR


I WROTE A THANKS TO SANTA

SAYING HOW I LOVED THE TOYS

AND I WROTE ONE TO MY DAD

SAYING I MUST HAVE BEEN A GOOD BOY

IMAGINE MY SURPRISE

WHEN SANTA SENT A NOTE BACK HERE

WITH A PICTURE OF MY DAD

AND A CATALOG FROM SEARS


I TELL MY SON THE JOLLY MAN

BRINGS TOYS WHEN HE BEHAVES

BUT BAD OR GOOD NO MATTER

HE’LL BRING EM JUST THE SAME

AND I TELL HIM SANTA’S UP NORTH

AND HE’S WORKING VERY HARD

BUT HIS TOYS ARE ALL IN MY TRUNK

AND THEY’RE ON MY CREDIT CARD


NOW SANTA’S GONE

WHERE SANTAS GO

WHERE ITS ALWAYS WHITE

AND IT NEVER SNOWS

AND I WONDER IF SANTA

EVER HEARS

THOSE WISHES I’M STILL WISHIN FOR

THIS TIME OF YEAR

I thought I might improve myself Try to change my disposition Make myself a better person I cut my alcohol consumption Read some books on meditation Filled my head with inspiration But I still think of me As the boy who knew me when If I could only see myself with new eyes Maybe I would know me then I searched down deep into my mind Exercised till I was tired Was in bed early every night I threw away my inhibitions Tried to make some good decisions Even volunteered to visit prisons Oh I would be a most lucky man To see myself as I really am There’s an ever present tint That colors everything I see

WE BUILT OUR HOUSES AT THE END OF A RUNWAY

WE DON’T KNOW WHY THEY CAN’T SEE THINGS OUR WAY

THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH     

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE

AND SOMETIMES HARD TO REACH

 

THE MAYOR SAID HEY NOW WE NEED A DOWNTOWN                                                                        

SO WE PUT IT WHERE TRAFFIC’S ALREADY SLOWED DOWN

THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH YEAH

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE

AND SOMETIMES OUT OF REACH

 

WELL I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU THINK WE STAYED HERE TOO LONG

BETWEEN THE A.R.E. AND C.B.N. WELL HOW THE HELL CAN WE GO WRONG

 

WELL THEY BUILT HOTELS ALL UP AND DOWN THE SAND

THE BOARDWALK’S GOT PLACES SUN WON’T EVER LAND

WELL THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH YEAH

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE    

AND SOMETIMES HARD TO REACH

           

WE WANTED A PARK AT 31ST AND LASKIN

You’ve been tryin now to stay on the run Your friends tell me you’ve been havin your fun It wasn’t long ago you wanted me around Now you’re on your own makin you’re rounds No longer around I have seen you sometimes out at night I always notice who you’re with and your smile I’ve heard em say lost love is never fair If you need a friend you know I’ll be there You know I still care We have gone our separate ways on the run We both know the price was paid Have we won or lost? What was the cost? Now your costume scene has turned into a play Wondering if I was on your stage I don’t remember if I thought of you as mine Were we out of love or only out of time? Let’s always be kind We have gone our separate ways on the run We both know the price was paid Have we won or lost? What was the cost?

When I was only yet a lanky young man Long before you and I had ever met You were a vision runnin in and out of my mind Like a glowing silver figure silhouette Wherever I’d be now if I were without you I’d not be any closer to who we are Love is what you always have to give me It’s all I’ll carry with me when I pass through that door As a kneeling young man everyone I thought I knew Was searchin for a lover with heart of gold When I had drifted far beyond that early dream You brought my heart back in here from the cold Oh beauty’s sometimes only hidden on the inside But you wear it ever through you there and more Love is what I’ll always have to give you And it’s all we’ll carry with us when we pass through that door When we met I’d swore that I had known you If ever you’re thoughts start to stumble about me And you’re not sure of all the things that went before Love is what I’ll always have to give you And it’s all we’ll carry with us when we pass through that door Love me like before love me even more Love me once again love me at the end
