the night

in the night’s sultry heat
with ciccada’s grinding beat
and the stars glimmering high

the meaning of your words
they’re the sweetest ever heard
echo through me with a sigh

sending thoughts up with the fireflies
of you and I

ancient trees, they guard us
mossy bedding beneath us
not wanting to say goodbye

for our nights fill our minds
will they always help us find
when our love vowed not to die

sending thoughts up with the fireflies
of you and I

Return

Return to yourself
To who you’ve always known you are
Forget the ones who turned you
And left you feeling sour

Embrace your true self
Only you can find the way
Remember all your dreams
And let them fill your days

The thrill of the rising sun
Each day has such potential
Excitement for what’s to come
Every moment is special

And trust in yourself
You’ve always known the answers
True happiness is right there
Looking back from the mirror

Return to yourself
Recapture deep inside you
All that you have been missing
And again it will seem true

The thrill of the rising sun
Each day is a beginning
Excitement for what’s ahead
It’s time to begin living

We’re Alright

oh we’re alright

the crazies can talk their talk
but they can’t touch us with their lies
we’re the ones who walk the walk
we spread truth and it’s no surprise

that we’re alright

we shrug them off and just keep going
seek like minds and look for new ways
got a hunch our brilliance is showing
gonna get us all through the haze

’cause we’re alright

every day is new
can you feel it, too?
we can change reality
we will with certainty

yeah, we’re alright

Whispers

I hear this song sung by one person but with the lines in parenthesis altered somehow….? Change things up as you want, edit, whatever.

Whispers no one hears
(you stopped listening)
Alone with all my fears
(maybe you never heard)
Dreams can disappear
(consumed by your thoughts)
Feels like no one’s near

You checked out long ago
When or how it doesn’t matter
You blocked me out, that’s clear
As if your your eardrums would shatter
If you would only hear

Alone in the dark
(I feel so vacant)
Missing light and spark
(you are not the same)
Words have missed their mark
(I will be quiet)
The night is so damn dark

You checked out long ago
When or how, it doesn’t matter
You blocked me, that’s clear
As if your eardrums would shatter
If you would only hear

When will morning break?
I listen for sounds
That my joy creates
Will love speak to me?
This can’t be my fate
I won’t be alone
But hear me, it’s too late
(whispered)…for us

Redeye at three

Lyrics by Jim

Redeye at three
Rachel at four
Ain’t nobody I can talk with anymore.
You got your truths
You got your lies
But you won’t know which is which
Until you realize
Everybody’s spinnin’
Some more than others
Everybody’s grinnin’
Prob’ly not their mothers.

Got a little girl comin’
Prob’ly not the last
Some day in the future
She will surely ask
Can I have some ice cream?
Can I go to college?
How far to our vacation?
Can I have some knowledge?
No, someday and shhh
But as to the last
Here’s a little relic
That I bring from the past
Everybody’s spinnin’
Some more than others
Everybody’s grinnin’
Prob’ly not their mothers.

If you want to make things better
If you wanna add some value
Listen to the “other” guy
And don’t be surprised if you
Hear some other stories
That your guy didn’t mention
May be true, may be false
But an ounce of prevention.
Everybody’s spinnin’
Some more than others
Everybody’s grinnin’
Prob’ly not their mothers.

We get our truth from liars but
Not with blinders on.
Decide what’s true from all that’s said.

Not just what one has spun.
Some spin by omission
Of stories others tell.
To them it ain’t important
To others well…….
Everybody’s spinnin’
Some more than others
Everybody’s grinnin’
Prob’ly not their mothers.

Outtro:
Redeye at three
Rachel at four
Ain’t nobody I can talk with anymore.

NPR on at six
Along with Ralph and Joe.
Neal at ten
Rush at noon
Then NPR some mo’

Other Neil when off the road.
Phil and Five at five,
Mark and Bret and Wolf at six
Keeping talk alive.

****************************************
I need’m all, I won’t lie
(‘cept for Sean and that E.D. guy.)
Everybody’s spinnin’
Some more than others
Everybody’s grinnin’
Prob’ly not their mothers.

Meet Me

<CHORUS >

Meet me

Meet me in this place

Meet me

I long to see your face

<1ST VERSE>

To experience your presence

And feel your warm embrace

How long I’ve been away

How far I have strayed

Just turned my back on all I knew

Really turned away from only You

<BACK TO CHORUS>

<2ND VERSE>

To walk together side by side

And feel that I am still alive

I thought that I could do it

Do it on my own

Take it all into my hands

Now I know that I was wrong

<BRIDGE>

But now I’m on my knees

Crying out for Your Grace

I’m in need off that Mercy

So I can see you face to face

<LAST CHORUS>
