The Lyrics

You’ve Got To Start (Over) Somewhere

 

Housekeeping

With everyone gone it’s just you and me here now

and I feel that it’s time to unlock my world to you

there’s so much I’ve been thinking won’t you come inside

and I will give everything to you

 

It’s so nice to have you here with me my friend

and I hope you will stay for a while

we will paint pictures with every move we make

and this will take us a million miles

 

I know that there are troubled times

but I will blow them all away

 

won’t you rest yourself by me tonight

just lay down let yourself be free

we can just be in love it will be alright

and won’t you give everything to me

 

I know that there are troubled times

but I will blow them all away

 

My love it’s come down to one night

and I’m sure we both will see

this love that we’re requesting

will come so easily

and I hope that it stays for a long time

 

when the sun comes up I will say hello

and I will wake you with a kiss

I’ve been waiting for you for so long

oh and now it’s come down to this

 

My love it’s come down to one night

and I’m sure we both will see

this love that we’re requesting

will come so easily

and I hope that it stays for a long time

 

 

Good As Gold

It could only be so good

it could only be this way

thanks to the way it is

there’s nothing I would change

 

You came to stand beside me

now I don’t have to be alone

I never the light before

but now it’s good as gold

 

See there’s this sun beam

that I call a friend

I need him sometimes

now I need him again

 

-Chorus

 

As the wind blows up my back

a chill becomes of my spine

I would give her everything

just knowing that she’s mine

 

-Chorus

 

Now I”m hooked on everyday

there’s a smile in every face I see

I don’t know what it is you do

but you do so much to me

 

Wake up it’s time to go

things have changed it’s good as gold….

 

Little Boy In Love

Go ahead let it rain today

that would only make it more beautiful

like a breath of fresh air I can taste

For all I care it could snow out there

that would only make it more wonderful

 

I”m acting like a little boy in love

I”m feeling like a little boy in love

the more that time goes by

the more I feel like I can fly

and I”m acting like a little boy in love

 

Wether walking on crowded streets

or lying down on a windy beach

there’s nothing about this I would change

if tomorrow I should die

for me I wish you wouldn’t cry

cause I lived the happiest man alive

 

-Chorus

 

When I see you standing there

I loose control

 

-Chorus

 

The Colors The Days The Sin

Where do all the colors go at night

all the reds, purples, blues, yellows, blacks, and whites

tucked away the all escape in hiding from the sunlight

maybe I don’t want to come down so soon tonight

 

Will we mess our minds up once again

through we’ve been told the consequence

we indulge in the sin

it’s hard to make sense of situations we’re living in

and all these crazy things happen time and time and time again

 

but as the story goes it’s a lot less like life in the city

and as we all know sometimes things can be insane

but I’m hungry now and there’s no one around who can feed me

but if you’ll stay I’ll share the last crust of bread my friend

 

now the day is disappearing all to soon

I woke up just an hour ago an hour ago and now it’s afternoon

I don’t know how it slips away or where it’s disappearing to

and in these time I believe it’s ok for us to have the blues

 

There’s a fire burning bright up in the sky

and every time I look at you I see it in your eyes

your beauty overwhelms me for now yo hare so fine

and if I had a star to give I’d give you all the stars tonight

 

-Chorus

 

I’m glad that you’re here so we both can go on like this….

 

Hey! I Love

It’s a big divide

it takes up all my time

see this little girl and me

I know we’re doing fine

the minutes turn to hours

and all the daylight turns to night

 

then I walk outside to a start sky

I feel a raindrop on my head

it makes me wonder

how we’re living for the moment

every moment with this loving in our eyes

 

Hey! I love you

Hey! you love me too

what more in this world could we need than loving coming down

 

It’s a stary sky

a million miles wide

every things up in the air with people passing

every day turns into weeks while our babies grow up right before our eyes

 

-Chorus X 2

 

Down Without You

Blank stares at tree tops

I sit outside my window today

dreaming of oceans that one day

will come and wash me away

 

how long till you come around

cause it feels like I”m going down without you

 

behind closed doors

and never really knowing what to say

dreaming of something

to come and take this pain away

 

-Chorus

 

In all of this time

everything that was up is coming down and turned around

now what I find is I’m not going down

 

-Chorus

 

Blank stares at tree tops I sit outside my window today…

 

This Is How It Feels When A Heart Is Torn In Two

It’s hot as hell and rain outside

in this lazy summertime

all these rain drops beating on my brain

I aint got a place to go

the place I am don’t feel like home

fells like all I’ve left is my name

 

I”m tired of fighting this one sided war

when every time I turn around theres more sorrow at my door

and it aint funny no it’s sad and it’s true

this is how it feels when a heart is torn in two

 

This ain’t no way to live a life

feeling all this pain and strife

feeling like on one is one your side

feeling like I’ve lost my soul

I wanna find a deep dark hole

maybe I’ll just crawl inside and die

 

-Chorus

 

You just want to run away

hoping for a better day

you know that trouble’s not far behind

looking back I hope to see

a better world for her and me

I turn around and I”m blind

 

-Chorus

 

Chinese Radio

These Microphones are ears listening

that hear¬†everything I do even when I’m alone

listening even when they’re not turned on

 

This guitar is my voice when I”m not making any noise

singing out on and on so loud and so clear

for all the world or for no one at all to hear

 

Drag me down, Tear me up, Chinese radio sings us songs about love

it’s just one of those things that just can’t be explained

an answer to a question I’ll never get today

 

Bass guitar is my skin holding everything that should be in

without you I would be all over the place

just some blood and some bones without a face

 

these drums are my heart keeping me going when I”m not working at all

moving blood keeping me and my spirit alive

finally gets to rest on the day that I die

 

-Chorus

 

Save Me

With the Sunrise, a world full of people would die

never knowing but soon would realize

our lives can become paralyzed right before our eyes

it’s just a matter of time

 

Baby.. won’t you please save me

I’m reaching out I’ve fallen down can’t get myself up off the ground

oh baby won’t you please save me from this hell I”m living in

 

we remember a world full of blue skies

now all we see is what’s right in front of our eyes

the greenest of the green grass just died

the oceans and the rivers are dry

 

-Chorus

 

by morning they’d all be gone

never knowing

 

-Chorus

 

It’s Not Just What I Want

She left for Phoenix Arizona on friday flight after a long night of celebrating

just her and me

I drove to the airport that day hand in hand we made our war to the terminal

then I had to leave

 

it’s not just what I want it’s what I need

 

Before I left I made a wish and after a long and lovely kiss I just looked at her

in the face

with my hands I held her head, I don’t remember what I said I just remember

that time and place

 

-Chorus

 

America took her away from me

won’t you please please come back home

I don’t ever remember feeling this alone….

 

Beautiful Flower

 

Shine

Don’t you know you make me want to shine

make me want to hold my head up high

Shining there bright as the morning sun

I want to light the way up for everyone

want to wake up next to you in my bed

spend the day thinking of what you said

You make me want to go the extra mile

you could bring the world to tears with your smile

 

Happy Now

 

When I wake up in the morning

oh the lovely things I see

there’s a bird outside my window

singing a song just for me

The breeze is blowing through the treetops

makes me want to go outside

birds are flying swooping diving in the wind

makes me wish that I could fly

 

with everything you’ve seen

and everything you’ve done are you happy now? X3

 

Sometimes it’s hard to notice

when you’ve got a good thing in your hand

it’s too late by the time is slips away

and you just don’t understand

the ocean pushes up the shoreline

my mind tends to come and go

like the water on the sand

the rhythm starts in my head and it runs down to my toes

 

Chorus

 

Drowning In The Water

 

Did you enjoy destroying my heart?

tearing up the feelings that I had

take this knife and shove it in my chest.

 

Days into weeks and the weather turns cold

it’s all the same around here

another birthday, christmas, goodbye new year

 

Did you mean to burn the bridge?

the one we were standing on

while we were holding hands

now the bridge is gone and we’re drowning in the water.

 

it’s hard to swim when you can’t breathe

it’s hard to breath with your head under water

somebody “save me” I need a life boat now

 

weeks into months and the weather turns warm

I feel my body shutting down

my mind is fading what’s left of me now?

Chorus 2X

 

Where I Come From

 

I was born in a little town

where the river runs through

This guitar strapped to my chest

and the memory of you

around here we stay up last at night

and kiss the morning dew

When the stars are aligned

we sit outside by the fire and stare at the moon

telling tales of our lives,

the stories and the wiskey are all that we have

to help us through

 

where I come from

if you’ve got nothing left you can have some of mine

sit your self down by this fire tonight

have you ever felt so alive

 

You only get one trip around

on this circle of blue

with your troubles

strapped to your back and

the things that worry you

round here we help out all our friends

just to see them through

sipping good whiskey now and then

we like a good smoke too

 

When the stars are aligned

we sit outside by the fire and stare at the moon

telling tales of our lives,

the stories and the wiskey are all that we have

to help us through

 

where I come from

if you’ve got nothing left you can have some of mine

sit your self down by this fire tonight

have you ever felt so alive

 

 

where I come from

we break our backs

just to make a dime

so sit yourself down by this fire tonight

have you ever felt so alive

 

where I come from

when the work is all done

we have a good time

so sit your self down by this fire tonight

have you ever felt so alive

 

Love Around The World

 

Put a little coffee in my coffee cup

we’ll watch the sunrise as we work on waking up

we’ll sit here together and hold each other tight

and thick about all the things we did last night

 

I’ll help you remember and I know you won’t regret

we’ll share the laughter of the things we can’t forget

It was sunflowers and daisies, it was as sweet as it could be

that night of love between you and me

 

makes me want to say

Hey! Babe

you make me want to say

Hey! Girl

Will you wear my love forever around the world

if I said Hey! Babe

if I said Hey! girl

Will you wear my love around the world

 

Plan for tomorrow but don’t waste today

worrying about all the little things you can not change

Share smiles and wave at all the people passing by

they are the brothers and the sisters of our lives

 

Hey! babe

Hey! Girl

Will you wear my love forever around the world

if I said Hey! Babe

if I said Hey! girl

Will you wear my love around the world

 

Get Away

 

I don’t know what I’m doing baby

I don’t know what I”m doing this for

I let you walk all over me

then I let you right back in my door

I’ve been down so long baby

There ain’t no use in fighting anymore

 

Wont you take me for a ride

in the back of your little pink car

I’ve been waiting for this night

I want you to be my star

with you in the driver seat

I won’t need to go very far

 

Once upon a time

in a land somewhere far away

I wanted to make you mine

and I hoped one day you’d stay

now that day has come baby

and I ain’t going to let you get away

 

One More Day

 

There’s a darkness you can feel

when something’s slipping away

there’s a light that you can see

when a good thing is coming your way

it was the brightest light I’d ever seen that day

when you waked through the door

and you looked my way

 

I may not be a gambler baby

no I’m just a man

I think I’ll go all in this time

on this hand

please don’t think I’m crazy baby

and try to understand

this scary world ain’t half as bad

when I hold your hand

 

all I want is one more day

one more day beside you

making me feel this way

am I asking too much when I say

all I want is one more day

 

The way that your eyes shine

they brighten up my night

it’s just as clear in the morning

when I see the suns first light

waking up beside you

means it’s all going to be alright

baby you are the sunshine of my life

 

all I want is one more day

one more day beside you

making me feel this way

am I asking too much when I say

all I want is one more day

 

The rocky road I traveled

that lead me to you

was more than I thought that I could handle

but I made it through

the sticks and stones the broke my bones

and the words they hurt too

but now the sun is out and the sky is blue

 

all I want is one more day

one more day beside you

making me feel this way

am I asking too much when I say

all I want is one more day

 

All I want is one more day

one more day beside you

making me feel this way

if there’s no tomorrow

and there’s nothing left to say

All I want it one more day

forever

 

Barstool In Paradise Lyrics By Darrell Moss

It was a week ago today, I packed up my bags and drove away

Her love for me was gone, so it was time for me to move on

I let the highway take me to a place where there is no life race

where palm trees are the shade and the steel drums are played

 

On a barstool in paradise, man don’t it sound nice

I’m going to find myself and forget the life I left behind

clear my mind and unwind, and I guarantee you’ll find

this barstool fits your ass as good as mine

 

There wasn’t another woman, No there wasn’t another man

there was just no love, that’s not so hard to understand

I just did what had to be done to save my mind from coming undone

when she told me she felt the same way I set off to find white sand and a sunny day

 

Chorus

 

As I look around at all these tourists, as they invade this beach town

I don’t let it bring me down you see I’ve found this place is where I can set me own pace

there’s no luggage to pack for me, if you need me you know just where I’ll be

there’s no luggage to pack for me, if you need me you know just where I’ll be

 

So come sit next to me, have a drink and you will see that this barstool in paradise is the place for me.

 

That’s All We Need

When I lay my head down by the Fire

I close my eyes and I’m filled with desire

Being with you makes me higher

than a tight rope man in the sky on a wire

 

I know we won’t fall down now

somehow I just know we won’t fall down now

 

We’ve got a little music on the radio

turn it up loud while we dance real slow

3 or 4 more nights until the next show

we’ve got nothing to do and nowhere to go

 

I know we won’t fall down……

 

Cause tonight we’re dancing¬†just a little romancing

just you and me baby, that’s all we need

 

You’ve got that loving look in your eyes

like someone took two stars and just put them there inside

we’ve got nothing here to hide

I’m going to lay you down, I can’t wait to get inside.

 

Chorus X2

 

Somebody

You’ve got to love somebody

You’ve got to get out there and find someone to love

You’ve got to be somebody

You’ve got to be somebody someone else can love

 

sometimes late at night when I wait

I find that there’s no one else around

and everything seems to fall apart in my dreams

but I wake to find my feet back on the ground

 

I want to see somebody

I want to see somebody look up toward the sky

I want to be somebody

I want to be that someone looking in your eyes

 

sometimes late at night when I wait

I find that there’s no one else around

and everything seems to fall apart in my dreams

but I wake to find my feet back on the ground

 

You’ve got to be somebody

You’ve got to love somebody

You’ve got to be somebody that someone else can love

 

You’ve got to love somebody

You’ve got to get out there and find someone to love

You’ve got to be somebody

You’ve got to be somebody someone else can love

 

sometimes late at night when I wait

I find that there’s no one else around

and everything seems to fall apart in my dreams

but I wake to find my feet back on the ground

 

You’ve got to be somebody

You’ve got to love somebody

You’ve got to be somebody that someone else can love

 

Good Girl With A Bad Mouth

 

She’s a good girl with a bad mouth

but damn she looks good when we go out

she got her high heals and her her skin tight jeans

and every boy in the place knows what that means

in a black dress, she’ll break your heart

don’t worry brother you won’t get that far

cause when she go out she don’t go alone

cause her man always there just to take her home

She’ll never sing the blues, she’s sings Rock and Roll

 

She’s a good girl with a bad mouth

she won’t let me be

she’s a good girl with a bad mouth

she’s trying to make me see

She’s a good girl with a bad mouth

she’s trying to tear my heart out cause she’s a good girl

with a bad mouth

 

You better watch your back

cause she’s right behind

don’t worry you won’t feel a thing this time

cause she’s a good girl with a heart of gold

you better watch yourself or you’ll be told

she’ll leave you broken hearted and out there in the cold

 

She’s a good girl with a bad mouth

she won’t let me be.

She’s a good girl with a bad mouth.

She’s trying to make me see.

She’s a good girl with a bad mouth.

She’s trying to tear my heart out

Cause she’s a good girl

with a bad mouth X 2

 

Another Glass Of Wine

 

Okay! Maybe just one more glass of wine

I’ll stay a little while longer

if you say that it’s fine

Okay!! I guess I’ll stay the night

I kinda wanted to anyway

as long as you say it’s alright

You! Won’t you tell me about your life

all the things you’ve seen

and how you use to be someones wife

Me! Sure I’ve seen a thing or two

I’ve got a little daughter,

and I once was married too.

 

Chorus

No it ain’t perfect where we came from

but it made us who we are

there was a time not long ago

when we didn’t think we’d make it this far.

 

You! You say you spent some time alone

catching up with friends

and trying to make it on your own

Oh yeah! That sounds a lot like me

trying to find myself

and catching up with family

You! You say you’ve got a little boy?

What does he get into?

Does he have a favorite toy?

Oh yeah! My daughter’s just like you

She’s beautiful and funny

and she likes to wear my shoes

 

No it ain’t perfect where we came from

but it made us who we are

there was a time not long ago

when we didn’t think we’d make it this far X2

 

On second thought I think I’ll just go home

Yes I really like you

No! I don’t want to be alone

NO! I just don’t want to move to fast

I want to take my time

want to try and make it last

But, hey! Are you free tomorrow night?

I’d like to see you again

and maybe have another glass of wine!
