Lyrics

Alone      copyright 1/2013
Will you ever let me go?
Will you ever let me know?
Just how long you have wanted this
Just how long you have needed
To go, to go

Iíve been waiting here so long
And Iíve been trying to be strong
But I donít want this anymore
But I donít want to close the door
To you, to you

And I will never understand
I know we never had a plan
But I will miss you
When the morning sun shines
Down on me alone, alone, alone

Best of What's Left      copyright 2/2015
I heard you were leaving today on a train headed south
I couldnít think of anything to say, I just smiled, how ironic
I thought I had just decided to love you, now youíre leaving
should have I, told you before you were gone
just one more thing that Iíll never know I wish you the best of whatís around
as for me, well Iíll be, lookiní for the best of whatís left

I took for granted all of your time was for me
I should have known, better than that,
you were always the brightest light, in my life
you needed to shine and I wasnít looking as you sailed through my sky
now you have landed and I feel so far from your fireÖ

I wish you the best of whatís around
as for me, well Iíll be, lookiní for the best of whatís left

Brighter Side      copyright 2003
Hey sister I can see
A dead zone behind your eyes
Come walk awhile with me
See what I see inside
In the hand that youíve been dealt
I know you had some bad cards
But you got aces up your sleeve
Put Ďem down and play your part

Just donít do nothiní
Please just do somethiní
Because in your heart of hearts
You know youíre better
You know youíre stronger
You just need to remember

You think I donít understand
That I canít walk in your shoes
But Iíve seen your brighter side
And I know you can pull through
We have so short of a time
Down here on Godís good earth
Come on let me see you smile
Live life for what itís worth

Just donít...

So if you can be strong for me when I need you to
Thatís how I know you can do anything you set your mind to

Casanova Summer      copyright 2008
We started out in Oceanside
Wind to our backs, we were on west coast time
We left the sea and we headed out
Into the desert, into the mountains, we climbed the mountains

Yeah we were runniní out of time we were runniní for our lives
Yeah we were runniní out of time we were runniní for our lives

The flies in Kansas, they drove us wild
Still comin down from that Rocky Mountain HighÖwe were flyiní
Early morniní misty light
Sippiní on instant cawfee, driviní over the mighty Mississippi

Yeah we were runniní out of time we were runniní for our lives
Yeah we were runniní out of time we were runniní for our lives

Crossiní over that Jersey border
Never felt safer, never felt stronger in that cool salt water
Your were with us then as you are with us now
Here in our heartsÖstand up and take a bow

Yeah we were runniní out of time we were runniní for our lives
Yeah we were runniní out of time we were runniní for our lives

Closure      copyright 2004
I see you as you see me walk into the room
I know it bugs you that I will not talk to you
There is a limit of just how much I can take
But donít you worry baby I will never break

Youíre tryin to talk to me with those deep blue eyes
If you were half a man youíd just apologize

Just tell me that youíre sorry
And that once you might have loved me
Thatís all I want to know
Just tell me that youíre sorry
And that once you really loved me
And then just let me go

Donít think that you could ever come back in my life
Thatís not what I am saying youíre too sharp a knife
It would just be easier for when I see your face
To know that deep inside I have not been erased

Danny      copyright 2006
OhÖÖÖDanny Boy
Why are you still runnin
OhÖ.ÖDanny Boy
You always get your lovin

A little bit here and a little bit there
But no-one youíll call home

Home Iíve heard you speak of it

Ever since the day we engaged
In our very first conversation
You told me everything you know
And then with your next breath
You simply saidÖyou had to go

OhÖÖDanny Boy
You told me once that when you dream, you dream of me
OhÖ..Danny Boy
That is where I will always be

Daydreams      copyright 2001
I see you standin cross the room
You look just the way you do, every time I close my eyes
I want to run into your arms
Just the way I do, every time I close my eyes
But I turn and look away
Cause I cannot run to you, no I canít behave that way

Once upon a time you were just a dream to me
And than my dream, came true or so I thought
But you, you donít wanna dream with me
No youíre to afraid, youíre afraid of waking up
So you wake me up with you and now Iím left
With only my Daydreams

On an August afternoon
We were sailing cross the blue, sea together
Youíre dreaming of a boat that is twice the size of this one
In your head we can sail across the world
Breathing in everything around us
Living freely as we please, you and me on the sea

Once uponÖ

Why did you have to wake us up, tíwas so nice to be with you
We could have made our dreams come true
MaybeÖ.baby

There you go, on your way again
Youíre gonna get into your car, and drive on home
Though I used to go with you
And weíd stay up until 2, you with me and me with you
So youíve gone out of my life
Now youíre only in my head, and youíre only in my heart

Denise      copyright 2001
Sister Sunshine, you warm my heart
Itís been a long time since we were apart
The time is coming the inevitable truth
Weíre growing further and further from the days of our youth

How the carefree years do fly
And time keeps on slipping by
Now itís time to sayÖÖGoodbye, goodbye

Sister of mine, itís been a lot of years
A pleasant combination of laughter and tears
You know Iíll always be just a phone call away
So call me anytime even if you have nothing to say

Take my hand and hold on tight
Youíre forever in my mind
Even though we sayÖÖGoodbye, goodbye

Fool      copyright 2001
Hey babe, I havenít seen you for awhile,
And just like usual youíre lookiní good with that sloppy kinda style
You got that look like you donít care and I reckon that you donít
And I know that I should walk away, but I know I wonít

Now here you come my way youíre gonna buy me a drink or two
I know the deal by now nothinís new with me how Ďbout you
Ya been out of town again, too busy to call me up
So I listen to you ramble on, as I sit and sip my cup

Why canít my heart ever follow my head followiní whatís right
And if I know one goddamn thing I shouldnít be with you tonight
Instead my head always follows my heart followiní no rules
And just like usual Iím gonna leave myself playiní the fool for you

I donít know what you got over me you make me crazy for you
Tomorrow youíll be gone and there is nothing I can do
Still when you look at me and you want me to bring you home
Itís tonight I canít resist, no I donít wanna be alone

Frame of Mind      copyright 1999
Sittin waitin on the corner
For the taxi cab to come and take me far away
Goin somewhere new and different
I'm goin to a place where nobody knows my name
Yeah I wonít know till I get there
Just how itís gonna look or where itís gonna be
Maybe itís just the next town over
Or maybe itís right here with a different kind of me

Oh if I could change my frame of mind
Into something that would never get me down
Oh if I could control my frame of mind
Maybe I wouldnít feel so stifled in this small town

Yeah I got a steady job that pays my bills
But still sometimes I feel that I should be doin more
I got a roof over my head to keep me safe and warm
Yeah Iím lucky in that way or so they say
I got a bar I go to every week...they all know my face
And they named my favorite drink after me
My life has been good to me got no cause to complain
But sometimes I still do now why should that be

Oh if...

Would going far away be like running away from the things in life
That challenge my soul or should I just stay
And make things right in my head...I just donít know

Sitting at the playground that used to be so different
They tore up all the old swings to make room for the new
I used to play here as a child...well I never really stopped
Sitting on these swings when thereís nothin else to do
You know the best way I ever found
To forget about the things that are draggin me down
To swing as high as I can possibly swing at this playground
Gettin back to where i came from

Homecoming      copyright 2002
So I packed up all my bags looking back I own too much
I got so many little things I canít let go of
Kept a postcard from my love so many years ago
When I see it I think of a time and place I used to know

Iím goin back to my home town gotta think the whole thing through again
Iím back to wondering who I am, now Iím not with you again

Well itís a homecoming, a time for coming home
I was walking now Iím runnin
I think I finally, finally found where I belong

Now Iím driving down that road every bump in the pavement draws a memory
Will I be here when Iím old will you be right here next to me
Thereís the tree I used to climb when I was just a girl
He gave me shelter from the storms of my younger world

Well itís a homecoming...

Funny how one thing makes you turn and look around
What you see ainít what you get
Ainít what you want
But someone somewhere
Somehow gets what he needs

Itís a little bit different back this time around
The things that used to mean so much donít seem to now
The re-evaluation has only begun
So in between the heavy things letís have some fun

Homefires      copyright 2/2015
covered by a blanket of soft white
down a frozen dirt road
in the pines in the pines I can see the sun shine
through the evergreen needles that soften the blowing
of the cold northern wind that can rip through your soul
on the top of a mountain all covered in snow

keep your home fires burning for me
Iíll be home soon just you wait and see
cause thereís nothing that shines
as bright as the love in your eyes
for me

down by the seaside the smell of the salt in the air
mixed with the kiss of the sun in my hair
and the songs of the gulls oíre the bay
I just close my eyes and Iím drifting awayÖ.

tho the going can be hard at times
the road can look endless and winding
itís all I know just to keep on moving
on and on and onÖ

keep your home fires burning for me
Iíll be home soon just you wait and see
cause thereís nothing that shines
as bright as the love in your eyes
for me
oh no thereís nothing that shines
as bright as the love in your eyes
for me

Lights in the Sky      copyright 9/11/01
Lights in the sky
Symbols of our American pride
Standing 110 stories high
The Glory of our NY Skyline

Lights in the sky
Lives are crumbled out of sight
Loves are lost, the people cry
Terror came and people died

So we stand and we stand proud
We stand tall and we stand loud
We will remember forever right now
To our freedom we are bound...we are bound

Lights in the sky
Heros working through the night
Searching for a sign of life
Hope gets dim but it wonít die

Lights in the sky
Candles raging in the night
We will stand, we will unite
And for our Freedom we will fight

The Lost Sweater Waltz      copyright 8/2013
Well I left my favorite sweater down in Asheville
But I hope it will be cominí back real soon
Cause I left it with a dear old friend in Asheville
Who said he might just come and see me on the next full moon

When I first saw that sweater it was soft and pale grey
And I wore it all of the time
Lord I spilled so many drinks on that sweater of mine
I died it brown to cover up the red wine

I left my favorite sweater down in Asheville
But I hope it will be cominí back real soon
Cause I left it with a dear old friend in Asheville
Who said he might just come and see me on the next full moon

Well Iíve had that sweater for so many years
And Iíve worn it all over the world
It kept me warm at night down in old Mexico
Back when I was a younger lookiní girl

I left my favorite sweater down in Asheville
But I hope it will be cominí back real soon
Cause I left it with a dear old friend in Asheville
Who said he might just come and see me on the next full moon

Oh I hope that my dear old friend in Asheville
Will remember to bring my sweater home to me
Cause otherwise Iíll have to go out shopping, you see
And doing that will just bring me misery

I left my favorite sweater down in Asheville
But I hope it will be cominí back real soon
Cause I left it with a dear old friend in Asheville
Who said he might just come and see me on the next full moon

Luckiest Girl      copyright 1/2013
I woke up today like Bob
Smiled with the rising of the Sun
Looking down, got two feet on the ground
Ainít I the lucky one

Got ten fingers on two hands
Got some coffee in my cup
Got six strings to help me write this sing down
Ainít I the lucky one

Oh I think Iím the luckiest girl in the world
Yes I feel like the luckiest girl
Oh I think Iím the luckiest girl in the world
Yes I feel like the luckiest girl

I have air in both of my lungs
and for that, I am so grateful
Iíve got loved ones to spend all my time with
And for that I am so grateful


Oh I think Iím the luckiest girl in the world Yes I feel like the luckiest girl
Oh I think Iím the luckiest girl in the world
Yes I feel like the luckiest girl

I may not be a rich girl
I got no diamonds in my shoes
But I have less to lose

Oh I think Iím the luckiest girl in the world
Yes I feel like the luckiest girl
Oh I think Iím the luckiest girl in the world
Yes I feel like the luckiest girl

Mandy (ryan's song)      copyright 2011
Mandy can you still hear me?
I heard you're packing up and heading wesy
For ten years i've watched you struggling
Searching for the life that will be best

Nylon strings, red wine and some whiskey
Watch me for the change cause here it comes
Iíll think about you as Iím swimming through the clouds
Looking out the window at the ground

With you it was love at 1st note
and I knew from that day forward
youíd be part of every song I ever wrote

Mirror of Me      copyright 2001
As I sit and watch the world go round me it keeps picking up itís pace
Days go by and years go by faster than they ever have before
Am I crazy?
Itís to easy to be caught up in this whirling dervish we call life
Weíre an always moving ever growing always asking never knowing breed
Am I going crazy?

All the people are surrounding me moving in a circle
I see their hair grow long and old and grey right before my eyes
All the people are surrounding me laughing at my ignorance
I see them holding up a mirror of me and I see myself...Iím changing too

Think back to a year ago think maybe further back to five or ten
And think of all the friends I know and what about the ones from way back when
Do they know me?
And where did all of my time go and am I far off track from where I should be
Should I be too far away from where I am right now it there a reason
For everything

All the people ...

We put ourselves on a stage and feel the world is watching every move
But if Iím OK with my own self that I should be OK with dancing my own groove

Miss You So   (for my dad) copyright 2004
In a church all broken down
On the other side of town
Thereís a lady who sits and prays
For some meaning to her days
She lived her whole life
As a mother and a wife
Now her kids are mostly grown
And she thinks he left her all alone

As he watches from above
He is sending all his love
Wishes she could see a sign
She just sits and sips her wine

Somewhere high up in the Rockies
Young man fumbles for his car keys
Weight of the world upon his shoulder
As he looks down over Boulder
Heís got tears behind his eyes
He knows at home a mother cries
Are we really all alone?
Through the trees the wind starts to moan. . .

So howís the view from where you are
Have you ascended to the stars
Can you really hear me cry
When I look up screaming why

2 am the bar is closin
Walk outside the air is frozen
I cry because I miss you so...
You send me a song on the radio

Moments      copyright 2004
Lookin out the window on this rainy New Years morn
Thinkiní bout the man she had on the night before
Was it worth the hairstyle or the bottle of perfume
Man she was still sleeping when he snuck out of her room

I can hear them talking Ďwhy does she go back with him?í
Theyíre callin her a loser they all think that itís a sin
But somewhere in the darkness sometimes she sees a light
And in the momentís glimmer sheís beautiful in his sight

So maybe this year it will get better
Itís the one we wonít forget
Promises, resolutions...no more regrets

In a smoky room log walls with mortar in between
Like the space between our thoughts,
just like the days between my dreams
Across the room our eyes meet now my heart in on the floor
Youíre smiling and you wink at me
But youíre walkin out that door

So Iíll spend the next few days replaying in my mind
The smile you wore for me for that moment in time

North Country Snow      copyright 3/2015
Well there was something in the air that night
At the old Delta Blue
I tried but I couldnít stay away
You came walkin through the door that night
At the old Delta Blue
And I knew that my luck was about to change

Ya had that long gone lonesome look in your eye
With a glimmer of hope behind it
You sat next to me and bought me a beer
The you sang me songs so sweet and true and I
Moved a little bit closer to you
And my eyes filled on up with happy tears

I canít figure out what I was thinkin
Must be some kind of fool I know
Cause I left you, standing there
In the cold north country snow

Well that snow started tumblin down
And it was crazy, swirling round and round
Then you kissed me, and this old heart missed a beat
Like a river runnin wild and free
My blood was racing, pumping through my veins
In the snow, under the light, in the street

I canít figure out what I was thinkin
Must be some kind of fool I know
Cause I left you, standing there
In the cold north country snow

Not for Another Woman      copyright 2006
He moves across the room so carefully
He waits for his chance to flee
She has one eye open slightly
She sees every move he makes

Over to the telephone he creeps
He dials one number at a time
He wonít Speak a word or make a peep
He just needs to hear the voice on the other side

He doesnít know just how he got here
You see it isnít like he doesnít love her anymore
Itís not for another woman that he yearns
No itís notÖnot for another woman

He gets into his car every day
He goes to work and he comes home
She has the house so clean a nice hot meal
He is torn

He loves his life he loves his wife
But there is something wrong inside
Less and less he feels at ease
Only when he makes his phone calls in the night
Only thenÖcan he sleep in peace
She sees it in his eyes when they make love she asks him
ďWhere has your heart gone?Ē
He looks at her the tears are in his eyes
He says itís notÖoh baby itís not
Not for another woman

On Rainy Days (aka the happy boppy song)      copyright 2001
I got in my car to go to work
Turned the key and nothing happened
I left the lights on again and the batteryís dead...Oh shit
I guess Iím late for work again
Driviní down Rt 80
The cop pulls me over and says
Youíre going a bit too fast and Iíll
Have to give you a ticket maíam...Oh shit
I guess Iím later than I thought

On rainy days, I look for the sun to come out
And make a rainbow in the sky
I know if I can catch one things will be OK
Iíll find my pot of gold one day

Get to the office sit down at my desk
In comes the boss..."youíre late again" he says
"Iíve found somebody else to sit at your desk
Heíll be on time every day, so pack your things and go away"

On rainy days...

So Iíve got some time to myself now Iím sittiní by the lake
Watchiní the sunís rays catch the ripples and wash up on the shore
The clouds get darker and the lake is joined by
Raindrops falling from the sky...so, Iíll go home and get dry

Once Removed      copyright 2001
Pen in my hand, will you just write for me
Tell me how to live, to be free not to think
Quite so hard between the lines but to really try to be me

Oh to see through the eyes of he that sees me once removed
To know the thoughts of others, of others than myself
Oh here I go again, oh no no here I go again
Much to concerned about how I look
To those once removed from me
I said I got to got to never never
Look for strength in someone else
I said I got to got to always always
look to the sun through my own eyes

Pen on my paper can you tell me who I am
Is it my own life force flowing through you
Or the Greater Hand through me He sees right through me

Oh to see through the eyes of he that sees me once removed
To know the thoughts of others, of others than myself
Oh here I go again, oh no no here I go again
Much to concerned about how I look
To those once removed from me
I said I got to got to never never
Look for strength in someone else
I said I got to got to always always
look to the sun through my own eyes

Photograph      copyright 2012
Thought I saw you just the other day
I was paintin' the walls in my basement
You told me to do a good job
woke up to find out it was just a dream

You know i'd do just about anything
To see your face lookin' back at me
In anything other than, a photograph

Well i live inside a little box, inside of a bigger box
All my things i keep inside where they belong
On a shelf that hangs from my ceiling
Is the picture i wish would come to life

You know...

I sing songs for anyone who will listen
Sometimes they're just for my own ears
I like to think somewhere you can still hear me
You know just about every song i sing, i sing foy you..

Pieces of You      copyright 2002
Yeah I see you standing there
Known who you are for quite awhile
You come and go as do the years
You always seem to have a smile to share
And you do in your melody
Your sweet music that you share
And you do
Little pieces of you...

And so one summer evening
You came and crossed my path again
You had nowhere to be for awhile
Neither did I and we talked for awhile and I stared
At your face at your smile and I looked in your eyes
For a sign for some more
More little pieces of you...

Time is washing over me now
And I can never even tell
If I am closer of further away
To finding out how to find out just where
You are and what lies behind
Your sweet melody, Iím putting together
All the little pieces of you...

Rising Needle      copyright 2001
Seventy-five miles an hour, down the highway
Windows open sun in my hair, I am driving today
Interstate sign, red white and blue, looks so good to me
Passing scenery through the glass, like a picture on TV

Rising needle makes me high if I close my eyes
I am rising to the sky far away from the traffic round here

Going faster looking back, at the darkening horizon
Straight ahead the sun is setting, let the moon shine down on me

Is it wrong to drive away
I just seem to make it worse
They donít need be anyway

Pullin over for a rest, and a cup of coffee
Iíll just sit here and catch my breath

Startin Again (Sam's Song)      copyright 2001
Here I am holding my heart in your hand
We didnít want to say good-bye but time just left us aside
Do I just hold onto you
Because itís easier than saying goodbye
And startiní again, and loving again
And hurting again and cyriní again
Lord knows I donít wanna cry...I donít wanna cry

So Iíll keep going on down my road all alone
I can just smile and say that youíre so far away
But our love will never grow cold
I know Iím just fooling myself
But I can do what I want cause I want nobody else
To be startiní again, and loving again
And hurting again and cyriní again
Lord knows I donít wanna cry...I donít wanna cry

Iím alright by myself Iíve got my friends and ny family
My dreams and I have my health
And I doníy care what they say about the lonely girl
Whoís alone every day
They hear me talk to myself and answer my questions
Inside my head itís alright in my head
Cause Iím alone in my head and nobody else can get inside

Here I sltill am holding my heart in your hand
No I donít wanna say goodbye but time will leave me aside
No I canít hold onto you
Iíve gotta go on my way and learn how to fly again
Startiní again, and loving again
And hurting again and cyriní again
Lord knows I donít wanna cry...I donít wanna cry

Stay      copyright 2001
Runniní around one appointment to the next
Itís a dizzy circle, then Iím back where I started
See a detour sign, out of my straight line
Of fire so I ended up here

I just want to stay, I donít wanna go home
Only for today, then Iíll leave you alone
I donít want to pay with no broken bones
Please let me stay

I sure like it here itís nice, just ignoring all advice
All the things inside the guilt trips and the aggrivation
That I deal with every day, all the bills I have to pay
All the repercussions of my every move

I just want to stay...

So tomorrow Iíll go back to the things that I know
The grinding wheel that turns and keeps me in my world
Maybe next time I go down that road I donít know
I wonít hurry so fast, but right now I got to go

SunFlowers      copyright 2006
Sitting here feeling like I am stick inside of Of a Vincent Van Gogh
Thereís colors swirling around my face
I think I might be fading away

Never even knowing what the other hand is doing
Or where I am going
Who will be there when I arrive
If Iím even still aliveÖoh Iím still alive

Sunflowers grow into the sun
But where do we go when we are all done

The colors are getting darker now, as the sun goes down
And I keep on running around
Iím chasing my own scentÖyou donít know where I went
Well I never even told you I was leaving at all

Sunflowers grow into the sun
But where do we go when we are all done

The Way You Loved Me      copyright 2001
You came up like an ocean wave
No warniní, Iím off my feet
Chokiní, gaspiní, for breath
Salt in my eyes, I canít see

Just as I can stand up again
Lookiní around for my whereabouts
Soaked to, chilled to, the bone
Iím lookiní for you, youíre gone

Oh I love the way that you loved me
And I miss the way that you held me
And I love the way that you kissed me
You said..."Nobody kisses anyone like that."

These Shelves      copyright 2006
I donít know why you came back here
There is nothing left to give you
And it donít matter how much money you have brought
Thereís simply nothing left to give you

These shelves have been empty for so long now
I thought you knew that

Well you remember when and oh and I remember when
Things were a little bit different around here
I wish you hadnít gone away for quite so long now
But everyone does just what he has to

These shelves...

Well you canít press the rewind button now the way you can
On your television program

Iím still here Iím still hangin around
Looking at all my empty spaces
Oh what to do oh what should I do now
I have so many empty spaces

These shelves...

Tonight      copyright 2001
Hello I see you standing there and youíre stirring something up in me
I donít know how to describe it but I kinda like it
Do I do the same thing to ya baby come and tell mr just whatís on your mind
Even if you donít know what it is tell me all about it

Tonight thereís something on my mind
And something in my soul
Feels right just seeing you tonight
Letís get a little closer boy

To bad emotions donít come with little instruction booklets
Then I would know just what to do and so would you
So as the situation stands I can only feel the way I feel
Iím really hoping you feel it too baby tell me do you

Tonight...

Letís get away from here
Just you and me together
Letís figure this thing out
Or forget it altogether

Tossed Aside      copyright 2001
Day in day out Iím just doin my thing
Iím only looking after myself, itís just how itís always been
not really ready for a changes, not one of such magnitude
one night of careless love, slapped me in my face how rude

Oh careless me and my hasty heart
I tossed you aside like you werenít even there
And now I pray your forgiveness

You know that I have always longed for you
I couldnít have timed it any better no not even if I tried
but thereís no time for jokiní now my laughter feels so wrong
Iím liviní the lie of a hypocrite and Iím feeliní Ďbout two feet tall

Oh careless me...

I never even saw your face but I know that I was all you had
oh love of my heart may the angels carry you
through fields of flowers filled with birds and butterflies
and there, may your soul fly

At home all alone in my head I try to justify
but I know I was wrong itíll bug me till the day I die
I say I had nothin to give to you what can you give when you ainít got nothin
I could have given you my love I suppose that would have been somethiní

What Will We Do?      copyright 1993
Day after day the minutes keep on tickiní
And the clock wonít stop, not for you, not for me
When I look around me I see nothiní is as it was
And it will all change again

What will we do when the time runs out
Can we chase it down and catch it?
We might just as well try to paint the sky
And waste the time that is passing us by

I am not who I was and no one really is
But I am who I am now and nowís the only time
It is good I want to hold onto it till my strenghthís all gone
And when thatís gone what will I have al all

What will we do...

So here we are not who we were, but weíre together
Let the world change let me change and you
But donít leave my side, youíre my life, without you time
Can waste me to nothingí and I wonít mind

Windsheild Wiper Song      copyright 2001
Tell me you never pulled into your driveway
On a rainy night, turned the engine off and
Stared at the windshield till you
Canít tell where the wipers were...where they were
Tell me you never turned the rearview down and
Spoke to yourself, preparing for the possibility of
A conversation with that one that you wonít see...anyhow ...you wonít see

Well you know and I know that we will never really know
What lies ahead of this moment
I said you know ans I know that we will never really know
What lies ahead till weíre there...till weíre there

Tell me you never wake up the first time your
Alarm clock sounds, you snooze and you loose
Out on the morning hours
Your day is wasted you just sleep...you just sleep
Tell me you never look at your neighbor without
Wishing you could be seeing what they see and
Doing what they do living out your fantasies and dreams...and your dreams

Well you know...

Sometimes I hear the phone ring and
I just let the machine answer
As I listen to the world go round
