Radio

I’m going crazy honey, my sight is hazy honey
I’m going crazy to get you off my mind

The beat is rhythmic, you caught the groove
There’s something inside making your body move
You’re heart is poundin’, just like a drum
You get so close with my guitars every strum

You’ll start to shimmy, shiver and shake
Grab onto something cuz’ your worlds ’bout to quake
You’ll hum a while, then you’ll catch on
Transmissions fadin’ baby soon i’ll be gone

Radio, Radio, I’m inside your radio (repeated)

I’m on your shoulder, bug in your ear
I’m right behind you everything that you hear
A good vibration, to soothe your soul
Just take in stages or you’ll lose all control

You heard it comin’, now for a while
I’m waiting for you at the end of your dial
I’m your receiver, I’m crystal clear
You’ll hear the music and you’ll know that I’m near

The Price

So easy when you were 18
Nothing better to chase than the American dream
Crazy ’bout life and the boys on the scene
Getting high and feeling free and green

Growing older seemed to take so long
Life was just a simple summer song
Mama said hey where did we go wrong
But it always turns out that way, you know

Running wild out in Bobby’s car
Drinking whiskey at the local bar
Bobby said someday he’ll take you far
But you know it’s all talk his heart is in hock

It’s alright baby, there ain’t no maybe
Mama never told you like she should
There’s a price for being good

Little different at 21
Staying home now with Bobby’s son
He ain’t working, he’s running the gun
And you can’t remember why you loved him

Thought the kid would make your hearts grow strong
Whatever he had for you well baby it’s gone
And everyday lingers on and on
The cars and home don’t mean a thing
He can even stuff that diamond ring

Share Your Body

Hey now don’t be greedy, come on share your body
It’s your right to be naughty, every once and a while

I know you can feel it, try not to conceal it
The pleasure’s so real

Something’s wrong with my head, temperature’s turning me red
A body I want to surround
Something’s wrong with my mind, walkin’ a real fine line
Never looking down

Hey now you amaze me, passion drives me crazy
It’s the taste that you feed me every once and a while

I know you can feel it, try not to conceal it
The moment’s so real

(Chorus)

You wanna know how I feel about you
Not often a fantasy becomes real

So Why

Out on the open road she left me
With an open and empty kind of plight

Now I’m living the righteous part of lonely
But what she doesn’t see is that she’s bringing me delight

Now I don’t wanna try for you, life is just a ride for you
Searched my soul inside for you, you’ll come back to me now
But I don’t wanna try for you, life is just a ride for you
So why, fade away

Out on the open road she left me
Disappearing in shadows of the night

Now I’m no longer holding all that could be
‘Cuz now I finally see, What is right for me has been trite

(Chorus)

I once trusted tried and true, not the girl that I once knew

Out on the open road, she’s so far gone

(Chorus)

Out on the open road

Pray

I’ve seen you, standing on the corner
So taboo, with nothing in your eyes

Turn away, there’s nothing left here for you
Your dismay, when you’re wearing your own disguise

Did I hear you say, pray for me now, over and over (repeated)

Make a plea, to the one that stands before you
Then you’ll see, it’s been your own demise

Could it be, the life you once led bores you
Now foresee, or live in a life full of lies

Did I hear you say, pray for me now, over and over (repeated)

In Times Like These

Times like these not hard to come by
Times like these hard to make it through

Times like these always come and go
In times of doubt when no one knows

Times like these are arresting
Apathy benign protesting

We can’t face what fates suggesting
In times like these

Times like these the world seems on your shoulders
Bent to bare the burden we all hold
You might think your heart is growing colder
It’s not your soul you can not see, in times like these

I don’t wanna see the end
Cuz’ this is all I have my friend

Times like these self fulfilling
Zealots rise to lead the willing

They sweetly scent the stench of killing
In times like these

Times like these are arresting
Apathy is benign protesting

We can’t face what fates suggesting
In times like these

Kickin' Can

I gave you passion, I gave you love
But you tied me to the bed and said it wasn’t enough

It ain’t the anger, it ain’t the pain
It’s the addiction to the friction makes me do it again

Well I know the things you like to do, I’ve done them all for you
And now that we’re through, my heart bleeds

I’m your whippin’ man, kickin’ can, tortured game
Your feel good pain

Watched you smoke it, watched you stroke it
Drenched in leather makes it better, it ain’t the rain that make it wetter
Here it is now come n’ get er’

How I want you, wish to haunt you
Lying helpless makes me selfish, those that see me want to be me

Please don’t ever free me

(Chorus)

You Wanted It

So you wanna be a star…. yeah

So you wanna be a star
Drink champagne, eat caviar
Satin sheets and the finest cars
But you still don’t know who the hell you are

You wanted it, to reach the sky
You needed it, to pacify
You wanted it, to touch the sky
You needed it, to never die, oh never die

So you wanna sink the world
Pull the plug and watch the swirl
Give self destruction on more whirl
What’s the good of an oyster with a broken pearl

(Chorus)

Oh I don’t know how to live, help me
I don’t know how to give, help me (x2)

So you wanna be a star
Drink champagne, eat caviar
Satin sheets and the finest cars
Somebody ought-ta tell you who the hell you are

(Chorus)

Ohhh never die…

I don’t know how to live

Carry Me

Well I’ve sailed a many ocean, many ocean old and new
And the waters always carry me to you

She was cryin’ when I left her, yes she cried the ocean blue
But I know the sea will carry me to you

Carry me, to the land across the sea
Carry me, cuz’ she’s waiting on the shoreline carry me

Now the oceans of her own mind, as are many women too
But I know that she will carry me to you

Well I conquered no mans journey, that I’m not accustomed to
But I know the sea will carry me to you

(Chorus)

Carry me, pass the islands across the ocean to my homeland (x2)

I have sailed a many ocean, many ocean old or new
And the waters always carry me to you

She was crying when I left her, she cried the ocean blue
But I know the sea will carry me to you

Scattered

It happens to all father’s sons, mother’s daughter’s, everyone
There comes a time when you must run, sisters, brothers come undone

We throw ourselves into the wind, some come back ’round again
We turn to leave and to begin, the fact, the truth, the loathe, the sin

I can see you, after all this time
A perfect memory safe inside my mind
Life’s a journey, someday we all find
We’re scattered

Everyone there comes a day, there’s nothing you can say
Because it’s always been that way, no, you just can’t stay

(Chorus)

Some for money, some for dreams, for love of crazy schemes
Some truly don’t know why, it doesn’t matter
We’re all scattered

Wishing Well

Na na na na…..hey yeah

I wanted you, more than you knew
Heart has broken, shredded in two

You tried pity, killed my confidence
Counted my cards, now it makes no sense

You keep looking for a love affair
But you ain’t gonna find one here
When the wishing well went dry
You had nobody standing over you
When the wishing well went dry
You had nobody there to shelter you

Na na na na na…. hey yeah

Wished on a star, did not get far
Crossed my fingers, lowered the bar

You changed your mind, now I’ve got no time
I watched you cry, the wishing well dry

Smell Of Your Cigar (Grandpa)

I remember when you used to sit me on your knee
Bounce me up and down singing songs to me
Singin’ songs to me

When I was only 5 years old you sat me on your lap
I thought that I was drivin’ all you could do was laugh
All you could do was laugh

I can still remember the smell of your cigar
The way you told me stories of your old Model T car
The nights we’d sit alone on the porch and count the stars
I can still remember the smell of your cigar

High school graduation the breeze was soft and cool
I looked out in the crowd, couldn’t find you
I couldn’t find you

Dad he started cryin’, Mom told me the news
Dad tried to hold them back but the tears broke through
Raining on through

(Chorus)

I’m married now, two kids of my own
Hope my dad can be to them, what you were to me
Just like you were to me

I know you can hear me, when I pray at night
I ask the dear lord please, kiss grandpa goodnight
Kiss grandpa goodnight
