The Last Song

(Intro) 

(Chorus)    

You.  It’s all about you. 

Until there’s someone new-  It’s all about you.

 

(Verse A-1)  

This is a song that you’ve heard before

You will again, many times, I’m sure

‘Cause these are the thoughts that make people write

We’ve different stories but the same old plight

Sooner or later, we’ve all been there

Trying to show someone how much we care

 

(Verse B-1)

But the end’s- not always what we hope

And at times- we don’t know how to cope

 

(Pre-Chorus)

This is how we start over, over again, and over again

This is I become just your friend, but until then

This is how we start over, over again, and over again

This is I become just your friend, but until then

 

(Chorus)          

It’s all about you.  It’s all about you. 

Until there’s someone new-  It’s all about you.

 

 (Verse A-2)                           

Never-ever be afraid- to erase

It’s why we use a pencil, just in case

There aren’t any words that haven’t been said

There aren’t any letters that haven’t been read

Still- at times like this- wish I could disappear

Fall over the rainbow and into the mirror

‘cause what’s done now, we can never undo

There are dreams forgotten that we can’t review

 

(Verse B-2)

But there are dreams- that might come true

And many more- that we’ll never pursue

 

(Pre-Chorus)

This is how we start over, over again, and over again

This is I become just your friend, but until then

This is how we start over, over again, and over again

This is I become just your friend, but until then

 

(Chorus)      

It’s all about you.  It’s all about you. 

Until there’s someone new-  It’s all about you.

 

 (Bridge)

‘Cause this life is short… and my dreams, they do distort- my memories, about you and me

And this life is longer than it seems, when I’m still holdin’ on to my dreams

 

(Ending)

Life is harder than it seems, when I’m holdin’ on to dreams         

And I just don’t know how to move on with someone new~

The Untitled One

I’m a beacon, across the waters –waiting to be seen              

I’m a light, down the road -waiting to turn green        

I’m a tree, in the spring –waiting to see the fall

I’m a woman, without a man –waiting to give him her all                                     

 

But I’m not waitin’ in any lines

What’ll happen next, I can’t divine

And I don’t need no one to notice me

This is my anthem, not my plea

I don’t need no one, no nothing

Nobody but me

I’ll be your wish upon a star, lighting your way from afar

And I’ll shine, all through the night, even when you are not in sight

(Guitar solo)

I’m a beacon, across the waters –waiting to be seen

I’m a light, down the road -waiting to turn green        

I’m a tree, in the spring –waiting to see the fall

I’m a woman, without a man –waiting to give him her allWrite here...

AWOL

(Verse 1)

                Well, she didn’t see him coming, up the lane and down the road

                Well, she didn’t see him coming, she was lost and on her own

                Then he was there beside her, when she was all alone

(Chorus)             

                Little did he know, he needed her so

                He needed her so-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh….

(Verse 2)

                Well, she didn’t see him running, down the road and up the lane

                Well, she didn’t see him running.  He wandered off somewhere again

                And when he came back to find her, she’d gone and caught a train

(Chorus)             

                Little did he know, he needed her so

                He needed her so-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh….

(Verse 3)

                Well, he didn’t see her coming, up the lane and down the road

                Well, he didn’t see her coming, he was lost and on his own

 

                Then she was there beside him, when he was all alone

Marathon

(Verse 1)
Oh, the sun and the moon, they never leave
Although at times our eyes, they do deceive
No, they are always there, even if we can’t see where
We simply move around at different pace

 

(Verse 2)
Oh, the sun shines and brings her bright warm glow
And the moon, he tells the tides when to come and go
They know what they have to do -They know what we all wish we knew
There’s nobody takin’ either one’s place

 

(Chorus)
But there’s a path we’d like to find, if we could get out of our minds
We would see which way we’d like to go
And there are places we wanna roam, but we can always come on home
To the selves we have always known
We have to look if we’re gonna find- and learn to trust and be kind
So that when we’re found, we’ll know just what to do

 

(Verse 3)
Oh, there are things that everybody needs
And most of us have a chance here to succeed
If we could only see it clear, we all have nothing here to fear
There’s nobody winnin’ this life-long race

 

(Chorus)
We wait for someone else to see, the better selves we hope to be
And dream that we may see our hopes come true
We have to look if we’re gonna find- and learn to trust and be kind
So that when we’re found, we’ll know just what to do

 

(Verse 4)
Oh, the sun and the moon never change
Although their places in the sky do rearrange
If we could only see it clear, we all have nothing here to fear
We simply move around at a different pace

Gambling

Your coin is spent, wherever it went

Your di is cast, it’s in your past

Did you miss a turn?  Did you crash and burn?

It’s all just a lesson that you’ll never learn

       

So, don’t waste your time, wantin’ what’s mine

‘n makin’ strategies- because you don’t know me

It’s a shame, it’s a game- It’s a shame…

 

It’s over, when it’s over-

Sometimes I win, sometimes you lose

Whatever happens, we rarely choose

 

It’s over, when it’s over-

Sometimes you lose, and sometimes I win

Whatever happened, is what has been

      

Did you fall apart?  -and go back to start?

And would you rather cheat, than admit defeat?

It’s a shame, it’s a game -it’s a shame.

 

Over and over again, you make the same foolish mistakes

No matter how much it is that you lose, you just keep on raisin’ the stakes

You wanna gamble with your life once more- You wanna win back what you lost before

Oh-oh… Yeah… eah…  Your coin is tossed!

-and you don’t know how much of yourself it is- you’ve lost!

Maybe Baby (X-mas Song)

(Verse 1)
Last year I met a man in red -He had a long beard and a fancy sled
He pulled up, next to me and flashed a grin –Winked an eye and welcomed me in
He called out, “Baby, come sit by my side, and I’ll take you for one hell of a ride-
We don’t need no roads where we’re gonna go-  just look down at the rooftops aglow
We’re gonna fly on the wind, just like a kite- I’m gonna take you ‘round the world tonight


(Chorus)
‘Cause Baby, maybe… Maybe, baby, you were made for me
For me, for me, for me, for me
For me, for me, for me, for me.”

 

(Verse 2)
All that night we rode ‘round together, staying warm through all sorts of weather
We fed the cookies to his funny reindeer, while we shared a flask of holiday cheer
He told me, “Mrs. Claus, well, she’s the real myth.  I’ve searched the whole world for the one to be with-

 

(Chorus)
So, Baby, maybe… Maybe, baby, you were made for me
For me, for me, for me, for me
For me, for me, for me, for me.”

 

(Verse 3)
Since that mornin’ that he dropped me home, I knew better than to wait by the phone
I tried to roam and run with the boys, but I had more fun just playin’ with my toys
So, tell me, Santa, where are you this year?  ‘n did you get the letter, I sent you, dear?
Will you- meet me under the mistletoe?  I’ll wrap myself up, complete with a bow

 

(Chorus)
‘Cause Baby, maybe… Maybe, baby, I was made for you
For you, for you, for you, for you
For you, for you, for you, for you.

sdrawkcab (Backwards)

When I first met you, I thought I already knew            ...The person I am.  I thought that I had the plan
But then, life led me astray, to the games people play
You saw before I knew- I was falling for you
We tried to keep it all straight, but I didn’t hesitate
I stopped talking to you, but never stopped being true
‘n I hid the best parts of me, was afraid to let you see
Now I need you to know, I’ve got a long way to go... I know- 
I've got a long... long way to go~

(Verse 2)   

You have your own life, your own struggle and strife
I often forget- you had hopes before we met

Had to learn to let go, had to learn how to grow
But just remember that I know, you’ve got a long way to go –I know

All the words that were said, they still ring in my head
Though I shouldn’t tell you
And you, you meant them before, maybe you will once more
If we follow this life through
But there’s so much to explore, though I try to ignore
Know, I’m not faulting you
So, while you’re out and about, I won’t linger in doubt
Cause there’s so much to do, while I’m not waiting for you
La-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da…. I know!


But if you still feel the same, just keep playing our game
There’s so much we don’t know- we’ve got a long way to go

My Baby Blues

Thomas, Matthew, Marco, James-I never met you- I don’t know your name
Michael, Peter, Bobby, Brett-There must be reasons, we ain’t together yet

*But I’m feelin’ so blue- While I’m waitin’ for you

Andrew, Andy, Daniel, Paul-You might be short, you might be tall
Jessie, Jamie, Jerry, Mel-No matter what, I know you’ll be so swell

But I’m feelin’ so blue- While I’m waitin’ for you

Don’t you worry, it will happen dear
I can’t wait- to see your face- and hold you near

Emily, ‘Lizabeth, Janis, Kate-Can’t claim to know, what’ll be our fate
Audrey, Ellen, Lucy, Pearl-You may turn out -to be a girl

But I’m feelin’ so blue- And I don’t know what to do- While I’m waitin’ for you      
But I’m feelin’ so blue- And I don’t know what to do- While I’m waitin’ for you

Alice, Ernest, Francis, Lou              

All my lovin’, I’m savin’ it -just for you

Hello Dear

Hello dear, look on over here

-I’m singin’ just for you

Don’t go out for a smoke, or a dirty joke 

–Buy another beer or two

I’m the girl you wanna meet, I’m smart and sweet 

-That’s simply who I am

‘n I’ll give you a chance, if you try to dance 

-Just please don’t call me ma’am!


*Come on and dance for me, when you hear my plea-I’m singin’ just for you
If you feel my beat, get up and move you feet-Buy another beer or few


I don’t do no Macarena or Mashed Potato 

-It just ain’t me you see
I like to wobble my hips and move my lips 

-And sing again my plea
So pick up your beer and get on over here 

-Move me around the floor
But if you’re wasting my time or get outa line 

-I’ll show you to the door!

Come on and dance for me, when you hear my plea 

-I’m singin’ just for you
If you feel my beat, get up and move you feet 

-Buy another beer or few


So, don’t get me wrong, when you hear my song-ain’t lookin’ for no ring
I can’t help reveal how it makes me feel –when I open up and sing!


Come on and dance for me, when you hear my plea-I’m singin’ just for you
If you feel my beat, get up and move you feet-Buy another beer or few

Take Care

Video available: Courtesy of Chayya Cafe

I wanna take care of you- if you want me to   

You could call me up late, and ask me out on a date

I’d buy you some booze and be your muse

We could stay up ’til dawn, singing our songs

But I don’t know what to do, if you don’t feel it too

 

-So, if you wanna roam, I won’t ask you home- with me

and maybe there’ll come a day, when you’ll wanna stay- with me- again

Until I know what’s true, I’ll just write more songs for you

 

I wanna be your everything, when I hear you sing

You could get me a drink and ask me what I think

and after a few, I’d dance close to you

We could go race in our cars, go stare up at the stars

But I don’t know what to do, if you don’t feel it too

 

-So, if you wanna roam, I won’t ask you home- with me

and maybe there’ll come a day, when you’ll wanna stay- with me- again

Until I know what’s true, I’ll just write more songs for you

 

So, if you wanna roam, I won’t ask you home -with me

And maybe there’ll come a day, when you’ll wanna stay -with -again…

’cause I don’t know how I feel, and I don’t know what is real

The only thing I know is true, I just wanna take care of you.
