LYRICS

Thirty Thousand Days

Sittin' on my front deck,
Thinkin' bout the days gone by.
I watch the planets go around
And the years with a blink of the eye.
I'm over half way gone,
But baby I really don't care.
Cause with you by my side,
I know we can make it there.

Thirty Thousand Days.
Don't let 'em slip away.
Thirty Thousand Days.

When I was in my youth,
Searching for some kind of truth.
The summer's were so long,
Just a swimmin' on that old bayou.
Now the days go by so fast.
You better make the good times last.
Cause before you know it,
It's all gonna fly by you.

Jupiter and Mars,
Rolling through the stars.
The sun and the moon,
From midnight to noon.
Rising from the ground.
It goes round and round and round.

Thirty Thousand Days.
Don't let 'em slip away.
Thirty Thousand Days.

Lover of Herself

Struttin' down the street,
She exudes overconfidence.
Petals at her feet,
Lives a life of elegance.
Thinks she's a star in her car,
She's the czar of arrogance.
Pulls you in to her den,
With pretense of the innocence.

Left alone, all alone,
When she was just a little girl.
Now she's lost, that's the cost,
When you're livin'
In her cold, cruel world.

She's a lover of herself.
She don't want nobody else.
She's a lover of herself.
She's the lover of herself.

Tossin' men aside
Like a wornout paper ring.
Take your money and your pride,
She's the queen of everything.
Never tries, never cries,
Only lies about her history.
Now I'm the one having fun,
While she's living in her misery.

She's a lover of herself.
She don't care for noone else.
She's a lover of herself.
She's the lover of herself.

Troubled Son

Troubled Son, Troubled Son.
You know you're not the only one.
You break your back
In the noon day sun.

Bought yourself a ticket
On a one way train.
Said you're gonna stick it
To the man again.
But everybody knows
That he always wins.
And you'll lose in the end,
But it don't matter.

Troubled Son, Troubled Son.
Life is hard for everyone.
Go find your days in the sun.

Don't need alot of money
For a happy home.
Gotta give to Ceasar
What Ceasar owns.
And maybe let go to
To what God only knows.
Then you lose control,
And gain your soul.

Man it's a just a shame
What it's done to you.
But I know you can change,
Cause I've done it too.
And I know it's true,
That they can't take that away
From you.

Do It Right

You know I've had some chances
At long term romances,
But they all went wrong.
I've learned there's more than Love Makin'.
There's lots of give and takin',
Or it won't last long.
And I'll be gone. I'll be gone.
To play my song.
But this time I'm gonna
Do It Right, Do It Right
Do it so right that you'll
Never wanna leave.

So I'll try to show you
That I'll never hurt you,
Cause baby I have grown.
And I have no reason
For pickin' up and leavin',
Not if our love is strong.
So come along, come along.
You turn me on.
This time we're gonna
Do It Right, Do It right,
Do it so right that we'll
Never wanna leave.

Like a bell,
My heart's ringin' true.
The sound of me
Deep inside of you.
And baby,
Nobody's ever gonna
Love you like I do.

Dream All Day

Another rainy day,
These blues won't go away.
So I steal a little time.
Get my feelings down in rhyme.
But words won't do justice
To the way that I feel.
Cause I lost my love
A long, long time ago,
When I took a turn
Down this lonesome road.

Day after Day,
I pray to stay awake.
Charm a gentle light
To clear my weary eyes.
Now the sun rays are shining.
Blue skies are crying.
The lift of morning mist
Has realized.
With the warm, orange haze
Of the new sunrise.

So, I 'll Dream All Day
Get lost inside the sound,
With noone else around,
I can Dream All Day.

Every day of my life,
I strive to get it right.
Regrets and mistakes,
Loves lost and thrown away.
But I'm only human,
Free and forgiven.
Dawn reveals the day
With a true sunlight.
And melts the cold embrace
Of the lonely night.

So, I 'll Dream All Day
Get found inside the sound,
With everyone around.

Wild Blue Ocean

Wild Blue Ocean,
Bring her home to me.
Take this notion
Across this endless sea.

Make her kind.
Make her smart.
Make her fine.
Awake in her heart.

Bring you over,
You can ride me now,
On my shoulder.
I can show you how.

I can see.
You will see.
What can be,
You and me.

Luminous Sky

What if they all were right?
And late at night
We turned out all the lights,
Looked up to the sky,
Shimmering bright.

And what if we all were one?
Teaming with life,
Around the suns.
Celestial dream
Of reality.

In the sea
Of Earth Mother's loving eyes.
And the peace
Of the mystic's starry night.
In the Luminous Sky,
In in the Luminous Sky.

And what if washed ashore?
And saw the world
Like we never had before,
In a different way
For a brighter day.

In the sea
Of Earth Mother's loving eyes.
And the peace
Of the mystic's starry night.
In the Luminous Sky,
In in the Luminous Sky

Beautiful mystery of life.
The true simplicity of light
Is divine.
.
In the Luminous Sky,
In in the Luminous Sky

Cumberland

Spent so much time
In the city chasing dollars.
Lord this really feels like home.
And I found heaven
Up here in the holler,
On daily walks with my dogs.

And I like spending
Time on the water,
And making music with my friends.
And when I find
Some farmer's lovely daughter,
I'll stay with her until the end.

Amazing river of light
in my mind.
It's a miracle.
Maybe the sign of the times,
But my eyes had grown cynical.
And I had spent my whole life
Just a wanderin'.
But now I shine my heart,
Living in the Cumberland.

Now happiness
Is there for the takin',
And I've been
Fighting for so long.
And her sweet love
Is made for making,
As I warm her heart
With my song.

Amazing river of light
in my mind.
It's a miracle.
Maybe the sign of the times,
But my eyes had grown cynical.
And I had spent my whole life
Just a wanderin'.
But now I shine my heart,

Life's An Illusion

Blown away by the news
That I heard here today.
A planet like earth
Had been found.
I wonder if it has a night and a day,
And towering trees in the ground.

So, don't be surprised
When a larged mirrored eye
Captures a distance blue place.
Like so many times,
When a new paradigm
Changed the whole human race.

Life's An Illusion
We're gonna find
A world like our own.
It's all mass delusion,
To think we're out here all alone.
No more confusion.
One image can change everything.
I love the solution,
And the hope and the joy
It will bring.

Life's An Illusion
No more confusion
I love the solution
Life's An Illusion

And what if these worlds
Are not far away?
Or a new way
To travel through time.
LIke sands on the beach
Of our own Milky Way,
Or the infinite mind of mankind.

Life's An Illusion
We're gonna find
A world like our own.
It's all mass delusion,
To think we're out here all alone.
No more confusion.
One image can change everything.
I love the solution,
And the hope and the joy
It will bring.

L.A. Boulevard

Sidewalk sound rolls
Over barren ground.
Buildings stand tall and proud.
On L.A. Boulevard.

Streets gone cold,
Signs for the goods we're sold.
Girls with their haircut blues,
Lost in the sun.

This urban odyssey
Of life in the city.
And all these struggles
To be free
Are taking the best,
The best of me.

The actress cries,
Just at the drop of a dime.
And then she waves goodbye
From the old man's car.
Chrome heart blue,
Goes with her new grey shoes.
And he will be gone real soon,
So she can leave again.

Trapped inside,
She needs a place to hide.
Then like a princess bride,
Crashes in the flame.

Dreaming for her,
Drives her through
The sands of time.
Wandering, wounded,
West of Eden in her mind.
Feeling for her
Is just another day's pain.
Healing noone,
So young she'll change some day.
She will change some day.

This urban odyssey
Of life in the city.
And all these struggles
To be free
Are taking the best,
The best of me.

Penelope

I have nothing
But praise for Penelope.
Her lover sent beyond
A distant sea.
A long way away,
She sits by the oak tree.
Saving her love,
A longing loyalty.

Have you heard of the girl
From the olden days?
She sewed his father's robe
To keep the boys at bay.
A warrior won her soul,
So she wants to wait.
She promised him her heart,
And that's where he's gonna stay.

Oh Penelope,
All the time you weave.
I see you growing strong
From your adversity.
You keep holding on
Through eternity.
Perpetuality for Penelope.

She had the ocean's eyes
And an angel's face.
Her skin was like
A flower bloom in perfect grace.
Year after year,
Her faith would never break.
This woman's righteous heart,
Too strong to forsake.

Today a soldier's wife
Is waiting by the phone.
I hope she finds the strength
Of the lady in this song.
The lady in this song,
Who waited for so long.

Oh Penelope,
Lady of the sea.
I see you growing strong
From your adversity.
You keep holding on
Through eternity.
Perpetuality for Penelope.

Bittersweet

Oh baby I can't deny.
I think of you all the time.
I long to hold you
And make everything right.

And I know that one night soon
Under a southern moon.
I'm gonna show you
Baby what good love can do.

It's Bittersweet
These roots in the ground
Down deep
These questions I have found.
I'll try to give you all I can
And daylight will
Shine on us again.

Feels like I'm living in a trance.
Guess this could be
My second chance.
And where it goes now.
Baby, nobody knows.

And so now here I go again.
Living with you under my skin.
Is that the sun now?
Maybe we've already won.

t's Bittersweet
These roots in the ground
Down deep
These questions I have found.
I'll try to give you all I can
And daylight will
Shine on us again.

Shine

I'm world's apart
When i walk the floor.
That black little card
I don't need anymore.
Give me mercy
From the falling rain.
Nurse me, kiss me,
Make me whole again.

Run with the river
And glow like the sun.
Be my forgiver,
The holy one.
Boat on the ocean,
Write in the sky.
Calm the commotion,
Dry my eyes.

And when it feels
Like hope is gone,
Make me strong enough
To carry on.
Fill me up with faith
And take me home, and
Lay your love on me,
And I will shine my light on you

I've been waiting
A long, long time.
Like a blooming flower,
I'm in my prime.
Climbed over mountains,
The core of the earth.
Gazed in the fountain,
The life of my birth.

Lay your love on me
And i will shine my light on you

Ode to New Orleans

It was a ghost town
The day before the storm came
A haunting horn sound
Drifted past the Esplanade

The hallowed high ground
Hunkered down for the hurricane
The levee fell down
Fortune spared the Vieux Carre'

And we were singing run, run
Run, river, run from the old way
Run, run, run river run to the new day

Jumped a streetcar
Made our way out of New Orleans
Found the north star
And drove all night
From the southern sea

When the water left
The quarter stood on the river bank
Wreckage at its steps
That same old saxophone
Rang and rang

And the golden heart
Of the city survived
Saint louis cathedral, calming blue skies
When you're living with the river
You know that you're alive.

And we were singing run, run
Run, river, run from the old way
Run, run, run river run to the new day

Un chanson por la ville mon ami

Stay in My Dream

I made up my mind
I saw the sign
Now I know.

Hold onto the one
Who walks in the sun
Of my soul.

These words that I feel
Define what is real
And let it show.

And I felt the rain
On a long summer day
And all of my pain
In time flew away
It ran through the night
And stayed in my dream
Stay in my Dream

Maybe you'll find
A beautiful light in my heart
We'll go down to the sea
Gaze through the trees
At the stars

Reach out to the sky
Let the world clarify
Just where we are.

And I felt the rain
On a long summer day
And all of my pain
In time flew away
It ran through the night
And stayed in my dream
Stay in my Dream

Glance

All of my life
I have been so blue,
Waiting for the love
From a girl like you.
And when i find you,
i hope you stay
And you will never
Ever go away
Open your heart
And you will find
You can escape
Analytical mind
Don't be afraid of my love
Don't be afraid of love

You know you can't choose
The one you love.
It's written in the stars
In the stars above.
We make mistakes
And we learn the truth.
And when it's right,
We will know what to do.
You may have been
Hurt in the past.
It's so hard when it doesn't last
But don't you give up on love
Don't you give up on love

So gimme just a Glance.
You'll never know,
If you don't give love a chance.
So gimme just a Glance.
Maybe now we can find a little romance.

There was a time
When i closed my heart.
I would fix the game
Before it would start.
Things from my childhood
Needed to heal.
When you are numb,
It is hard to feel.
Today i have come a long long way.
Deep in my soul i have learned to pray.
The light of the world is love
The light of the world is love.

Hollywood Love

Don't want no Hollywood Love
A little too much push and shove.
You change your lovers
Like you change your shoes.
And everytime it's
The front page news.
Don't tell me that your love is true.
Just because you're well to do.

Don't pretend to represent me.
Life is more than a silver screen.
We're real people here,
Living real lives.
No temporary tinsel town wives.
I don't really think
That you're that cool.
Just a fool with no golden rule.

Those diamond rings that you
Buy fancy flings with,
You know they never could,
They never could buy you love.

You're politics
About to make me sick.
All those lies in your movie flicks.
You're so predictable
With your views,
So here is my review of you.
I don't really think you
Know your stuff
Cause you run
When the going gets tough.

Those diamond rings that you
Buy fancy flings with,
You know they never could,
They never could buy you love.

One word now before I go,
This is not just a fashion show.
Mr. Movie star find the time.
Read your history books,
And hold the line.
The real heroes are fighting for you
A little less lies and a lot more truth.

Dancin' in the Sun

I heard you're lookin for some fun.
Now that all your work is done.
There's only one thing you should do.
Before you break yourself in two.
Turn and smile at your friends.
And all your loneliness will end.

You'll find us Dancin' in the Sun.
And see us loving everyone.
And we'll be livin' for the day.
And we will never fade away.

I once was late on the rent.
Checked my pocket it was spent.
Climbed a hill hit the trail.
No more money in the mail.
She telephoned just to say.
That she will love me anyway.
Lost my job, wrecked my truck.
Needed a way to earn a buck.
Went down that road before.
Not gonna worry anymore.
And i don't care what they say.
Cause i am happy anyway.

You'll find us Dancin' in the Sun.
And see us loving everyone.
And we'll be livin' for the day.
And we will never fade away.

La La Land

Everybody wants
To be a big star,
When you're living in La La Land
Where you're judged
By the size of your car,
And the color of your two-bit tan.

Where your plumber is a drummer
And your waiter an actor too.
Your postman writes
His script at night
Justa waitin' for his big breakthrough.

We're living in La La Land .
We're living in La La Land.
Where the sun is really groovy And they're making lots of movies,
La lalalala la land.

Well, I was just another soul child
When I moved to
The city of dreams.
The people would show me
Their crocodile smiles,
And size me up
With their schemes.

You could say that I was clueless,
Straight from my folks backyard.
Pretty soon I was
Completely shoeless,
And charging up my credit card.

So I took every job I could muster
And I barely could pay my bills.
The sign on the hill
Kind of lost its luster,
And i just couldn't find a thrill.

But just before I hit the road
For the four day drive back south.
Made up my mind
That i could not go
And decided to hang out.

Well, the relentless rent
Kept coming,
And I didn't have too much choice
In my free time
I just kept on strumming,
And finding my own voice.

I was just another dreaming fool
With a day job and a plan
And slowly then
My sound turned true
And I found a funky little band.

The Riverside

Well, I will wash you in the water,
And grow a holy garden with you.

Oh baby, I'm a man
And I need you to understand
I have sailed through the stars
And swam by the moon,
I've come so very far
Just to be with you, yeah yeah.

You make me wanna Take It Down,
Take It Down to the Riverside.
You make me wanna Take It Down,
Take It Down to the Riverside.

There's a boat upon the shore
And the road to evermore
Is waiting in the sand.
And it feels so real
Everytime I hold your hand.

Baby, can't you see this light
inside of me is nothing without you?
And I'm going up the road.
I've been walking all alone.
It's time to bring it home.

You make me wanna Take It Down,
Take It Down to the Riverside.
You make me wanna Take It Down,
Take It Down to the Riverside.

Let You Go

I didn't see those little cruel
Games you play. I thought we were
Friends til I heard the lies you say.
If you won't change,
Then we can't help
You anyway.
And as for me here today,
The light has shown my way.

So, I'm gonna have to Let You Go.
Cause you never really
Seem to know.
And you could rarely ever
See the real me.
So, I'm gonna have to Let You Go.

There was a time when we climbed
up to the sky. Your peace and love
Has grown into a grim disguise.
I guess you never stopped
And thought to wonder why.

And as for me here today,
The light has shown my way.

So, I'm gonna have to Let You Go.
Cause you never really
Seem to know.
And you could rarely ever
See the real me.
So, I'm gonna have to Let You Go.

When in time,
You find an illusion,
So sublime.
To remember the surrender,
Open your heart
And you will Let You Go.

Here She Comes

Blue water running
Through my veins,
A billion lights in the sky.
Earth daughter
I can hear the rain
Flowing through your eyes.

And Here She Comes.
She knocked me
Off my feet again.
And there she goes.
I'm back out on
The street again.

And like a knight
In a long, lost story,
Counting thorns in a crown.
With my faith
In the hope and the glory,
She'll come back around.

Blue water running
Through my veins,
A million nights in your eyes.
Earth daughter
I can see the train
Glowing in the sky.

And Here She Comes.
She knocked me
Off my feet again.
And there she goes.
I'm back out on
The street again.

Change

Change, Change, Change
Baby, don't you ever change. Estrange, rearrange,
Baby, always stay the same.
Change, don't Change
Baby, don't you ever,

Lose that lovelight in your eye.
Don't forget the way
You make me high.
Don't hide your smile
As warm as the sun.
Be forever my only one.

Change, Change, Change
Baby, don't you ever change. Estrange, rearrange,
Baby, always stay the same. Change, don't Change
I love you
Just the way that you are,

With your heart
Right on your sleeve,
Your buttercups and
Your face like Eve,
Your happy laugh and
Your lips like wine,
The way you say that
You are mine.

To bite my ears
And scream my name,
To dry the tears
And fan the flame,
To walk on the beach
With our toes in the sand,
To know my heart
Like the back of your hand.

Baptised by Fire

Maybe you don't
think you have a cross to bear.
And when you scoff at
Those who suffer in despair.
And sometimes I feel
Like I don't know what to do,
But something keeps me going
And hanging on to you.

I see the wind is
Swirling around me.
I feel the vent,
It's boiling beneath the sea
It burns, life turns
And shows you some misery,
And how to be,
Baptised by Fire

There is one thing that I've come
to understand. This rocky road will
Twist and turn to the promised land.
And sometimes I feel like
Throwing it all away,
But something keeps me waiting
For a brighter day.

Been living in disbelief,
will this grief subside?
Too long in this cloud of doubt.
Will this love survive?
Baptised by Fire

I see the wind is
Swirling around me.
I feel the vent,
It's boiling beneath the sea
It burns, life turns
And shows you some misery,
And how to be,

Little Dove

I know one day I'll find you,
Cause I have an open heart.
For now I'll paint your eyes blue.
And I dreamed you from the start.
And I am strong so,
I won't fall apart.

Oh baby, you can come to me.
And you don't have to be alone.
And like a river to the see.
No matter where you roam,
I will take you
All the way back home.

So, fly high Little Dove
On your wings from above.
The one I'm thinking of,
Fly high Little Dove.

And I will wait for the real thing,
That pretty one with special style.
And just to hear your heart sing,
I would walk nine thousand miles.
And I believe that
Each step is worthwhile.

I know that we can
Change these strange days.
And lift us up from
This sad soul haze.
And I don't want you to be afraid
Of feeling right
When I kiss your eyes
And hold you close
Through the night.

Sailing Through the Rain

The city lights are shining
In the distance.
A war of wills is raging in your heart.
The wild wind blows,
Pounding with persistance.
A melting voice echoes near and far.

The myth of madness
Made you lose connection.
Your memory fades
Like a flower in the dark.
Now the healing light
Illuminates the heavens.
This sea of eyes
Lifts us up into the stars.

And we all feel the pain,
And we keep
Sailing Through the Rain.

We're mystified
After years on the ocean.
This ship of souls
Still penetrates the night.
The deep swells wide
In a wave of devotion,
And the other side
Is well within our sight.

No, No, No
We won't stop,
Til we get to the other side.
Sailing Through the Rain.

Walk the Other Way

Tell me why you let me down.
You drag my name all over town.
Was it something that I said?
Or is it all in your head?
Cause at the end of the day,
All you do is Walk the Other Way.

You say you want a loving man.
I give you all that any man can.
You choose the one
Who treats you bad.
You leave me here lonely and sad.
And at the end of the day,
All you do is Walk the Other Way.

I buy you things,
And sing you songs.
I pluck your strings,
And love you all night long.
And at the end of the day,
All you do is Walk the Other Way.

You get your kicks
And use my heart.
Your girly tricks
Are ripping me apart.
Cause at the end of the day,
All you do is Walk the Other Way.

An old fashioned girl
Is what I really need,
Who'll stick by my side,
And help me when I bleed.
And at the end of the day,
She will never
Walk the Other Way.

Tangled Tree

Hey you, You are what I need
To get me off this Tangled Tree.
Oh help me down, I want your love.
On a warm, soft glow,
Long shining low from above.

And we, we can take it there.
The misty moon is shining in your hair.
Oh help me see who you truly are,
On a long, summer's drive,
Deep in the night, in my car.

Well, am I gonna have to
Act like I really don't care.
And if I'm matter of fact with you,
Will that make you want to share
Your heart with me, Oh baby please.

I've been looking for so long now.
Where did I go wrong?
I've been hoping, I could find
A woman to ease my mind.

Hey you, You are what I need
To get me off this Tangled Tree.
Oh help me down, I want your love.
On a warm, soft glow,
Long shining low from above.

Bouncing Off the Moon

Everybody has addiction,
Some obsession of the soul.
So, don't deny your affliction.
That thing that
Makes you lose control.

And if we don't get some soon,
You know we're gonna be
Bouncing Off the Moon.

Now do you want
Some intervention?
You gotta have just one more.

You can tell me your confession.
You know I've heard it all before.

Sex, food, drug or religion,
Because it's just the same.
We're all living with repression.
It's like a demon in your brain.

Well, maybe I'm a metaphysician,
And I know just what you need,
Something made for your condition,
And that hunger that you feed.

And if we don't get some soon,
You know we're gonna be
Bouncing Off the Moon.

One by One

I see a girl as she
Waits at the airport.
Her bags weighed
With old wornout shoes.
She wears the
Freight of her world
on her shoulder.
One day it will
All come true.
Every year seems
To go a little faster.
She's looking for
That only one.
Her greatest fear is
Love is gonna pass her.
And she'll be lost
Forever in the sun.

What she gonna do
With all that passion?
When her lover has
gone, gone, gone.
Now we know that she's
Falling out of fashion.
When they leave her
One by One.

She says she wants
A house on the hill,
And if I don't buy it,
Some other man will.
But what's a house
With no warmth inside?
A foundation on
Foolish pride.

What did he see?
What did he need?
Who did he know?
And where did he go?

I heard she jumped
On the very next plane.
She had to
Fly, fly, far, far away.
And I will never
Ever be the same.
And those dreams
Fade away.

Soldier

Soldier on a mountainside,
Reveille calling.
Never gonna take his pride,
A voice yells Fall In.

Today it's do or die, with the
cannonballs roaring.
Kissing the pale blue sky,
Time for his glory.

He don't fear the sound.
He climbs to higher ground.
The forest shifts around
In the midday sun.
He flanks his enemy,
The boy from Tennessee.
He holds their remedy
In a loaded gun.
He had to live his life
Like a loaded gun.

Now that the war has come,
He goes to fight them.
Those who attack our hearts,
Leave children crying.
Stands for his own homeland,
Love is his reason.
You know he will give his hand
To fight for our freedom.

He don't fear the sound.
He climbs to higher ground.
The forest shifts around
In the midday sun.
He flanks his enemy,
The boy from Tennessee.
He holds their remedy
In a loaded gun.
He had to live his life
Like a loaded gun.

And now we are free,
He gave his life for you and me.
