Someday the Sun back to top

Well they worked him over For three days running Left him dying Out behind the pits Well the captain came over Said I'll tell you something Your not the man we wanted Still that’s life, that’s it Some spring the sun ain’t gonna shine No blossoms growing on the vine Sunset is still her favorite time No star with shame is gonna climb Well we fought it over For three years running I think its safe to say You made me fly Well I’ll turn it over Cause sandman’s coming He wasn’t supposed to be a scary guy The barman sneezes The waitress sighs Outside it freezes I’m not the man you thought was standing Help the air me in I’m landing Someday the spring is gonna shine Red grapes all turning into wine Sundown is still her favorite time Goodbye your star is gonna climb

Cherry Blossom Time back to top

Outside your window, the Robin’s delirious The mockingbird steals his best lines Your hands in the clay and your heads in the sunshine Your heats in the freezer today
Let it come down
All in good time
Would you be true?
Could this be real?
Let it come down like water
Don’t let another day pass
Seems we’re alone forever
This is your cherry blossom time
I’ll teach you ‘bout baseball, and autumn migrations Build you a closet for your things Maybe you’d teach me ‘bout paintings and real-love And babies that cry in the night
Let it come down
All in good time
Would you be true?
Could this be real?
Let it come down like water
Don’t let another day pass
Seems we’re alone forever
This is your cherry blossom time
I felt like a brother, your fine Latin lover Was smiling to drive a man mad Fine for an evening of salsa and dreaming You’re waltzing at heart and its cherry blossom time Chorus I heard about a lady, who’s friend’s all have babies Well lady, at least you’ve got friends I’d take you out shopping, a dress for the springtime A black silk shirt, Japanese silk, cherry blossom time Chorus

Only in Love back to top

You – Everybody had a boyfriend Too – In your plaid skirt lightin’ up a cigarette Try – Like to try a little lovin’ My – Better nature was hiding from the name of love and that’s just like … You – shouldn’t have to find your lovin’ True – with an ad in the back of a magazine Say – say the lines just like a movie Play – play the part, but you’re playing in the name of love and that’s just like you Only in love Only acting just because Only in love Play the part you catch the buzz You – could you be any younger Blue – always feeling it the minute you’re alone Wrong – your friends tell you and you know it Strong – how we’re feeling but we’re running from the name of love Only in love Bright and beaming just because Only in love Color me an easy touch You wanna believe in love You wanna believe in something You know it’s a long way back – oh well There’s no one around to tell I hope and I pray this finds you … well well Chorus

Precious Gifts back to top

Mary went down to the water No place to lay her burden down So wrapped-up in all her sorrow Couldn't see the flowers on the ground And when I get to thinking Bout the good things that I’ve missed My eyes they starts to drink in All the lips I have not kissed Well the mind is gonna wander, But my heart will still insist I want to, thank you Lord For these, precious, precious gifts Well old Job, he was a sad one He lost his home; he lost his wife He'd of lost his car if he’d only-a had one He might have taken his very life I never saw how he could praise God Through all the suffering and the pain But he’d turn out the light He'd lay down for the night then He’d, get-up and He’d start-in all again And when I get to thinking 'Bout the good things that I’ve missed My mind roams and I drink in All the lips I have not kissed Well the mind is gonna wander, But I pray my soul resists I want to, thank you Lord For these, precious, precious gifts

Tell Me Now Little Honey back to top

Tell me now little honey, Tell me what am I supposed to do? Everyone says its funny That I’d be so in love with you Tomorrow it may be sunny, and you just twenty-two Tomorrow it may rain money, and I’d be twenty too You’ve seen me reeling You know I’ve, got feelings I’ve seen you dreaming Your colors are screaming The stars so white, the sky so black To walk out in the midnight and never come back If this whole big dumb thing could really be something Wouldn’t you even try?
 Tell me now little honey, Tell me what am I supposed to do? Everyone says its funny That I’d be so in love with you We walk it, we bike it You say that you like it Its only been friendly You know in the end we Can join two hearts, and never look back Tomorrow is tomorrow and the earth might crack If this whole big dumb thing never meant one thing How can I help but cry? Short Chorus You really got something But tell me just one thing how’s a guy to do? Believe in one thing Come on and tell me darling How’s a guy like I supposed to do? Long Chorus

Setting Myself on Fire back to top

Seven A.M. on the job that’s a fine time to start With that first cold beer of the day Sometimes I know its hard to tell Your days and nights apart Anyway, who the hell am I to say But you’re, taking care of yourself By setting yourself on fire And you’ve been, blowing up your bridges And cutting down all the wires You've been, taking care of yourself By setting yourself on fire Taking such few chances And making yourself a liar You say you need a little air you’ll just take a walk outside You just happen to end-up out front of Ernie's bar You say you ain’t going to stay, you’ll just take one look inside And you stay just as you are CHORUS Sometimes I let my guard down Sitting home watching the game I find myself just floating Somewhere out in "Beer-land" Just me and the marketing men and the blondes Playing volleyball on the beach Making love in the surf Geez my life looks like shit So I strut on down the street Into my local titty bar Seems pretty much the same old show So I sit and I sip my beer and I think to myself After twenty years gee still such a treat Anyway, all these sweet young things already know . . . about CHORUS
