Van Morrison was just on Austin City Limits this weekend with a 10 - piece band.

Ha sang country, blues & jazz and played a fine saxophone solo himself on St. James Infirmary... for his finale, when they did Brown-Eyed Girl and Gloria (he sang that when he was with a group called Them in the 60's), the whole audience was up and dancin'.

hey Sits - you ever hear "Banks of the Ohio" by Doc Watson and Bill Monroe?
It's kind of chilling, actually...
"...I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.
All lies and jest - still, a man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest."

On the banks of the ohio...yeah i've heard it doc watson and bill monroe....sometimes you got to hold them down...

Buddie...like most kids I didn't care for much mountain music while growing up...I heard it so much...now I wish I had had a recorder in those days that I could hear my daddy sing orange blossom special again....or great speckeled bird...I just didn't understand that it wasn't just the sounds it was a way of life reflected in the sounds...a culture if you will...

I listen to all types of music...but there is a soft spot for bluegrass in me and I can't play any instrument...but like the song says 'I can't sang it but I can't help listenin'

Do any of you remember a group from the Sixties called the Sons of Champlin? They were from the Bay Area, Marin County. Some of the lyrics from their early albums really ring true now.

I'm glad they are still with us...I don't know why...maybe just a real contact to the past. It has been a lot of miles since those days maybe I'll look up some of their old music and play it again on my pirate.

Santa baby

Buh-bum.. buh-bum...
Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree, for me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too, light blue,
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellows that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my christmas list

Santa baby, I want a yacht and really thats not a lot
Been an angel all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and cheques,
Sign your x on the line
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my chirstmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you,
Let's see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring,
I don't mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry, tonight.

As a result of buying my first copy of "O magazine" in the airport the other day, I discovered a new music site that is SO COOL! So I wanted to share it with all of you music lovers!

Go to www.pandora.com, and follow the instructions! It's free, but to get LOTS of songs, you have to register. It's worth it!

I hope you enjoy it!



And, my song contribution for today is:



Look at those dancers gliding around
Seems as is their feet
Don't hardly touch the ground

Look at them smiling
Like they knew one another
And they never would come down

Turn around and hold me
I'd like to see your face alone
I'm hoping there's someone home

I'd like to meet you
Who do you see?
Introduce yourself
to whichever of me is nearby

Close behind your eyes
you're laughing at me
And I'm stuck with no instructions
that I can see to steer by

Stick around, it's tricky ground
I'd like to see your face alone
I'm hoping there's someone home

Two or three people
fading in and out
Like a radio station
I'm thinking about
But I can't hear

Who gets breakfast?
Who gets the lunch?
Who gets to be
the boss of this bunch?
Who will steer?

Turning
Turning
To see your face alone
I'm hoping there's someone home

Dream
Do you dream?
Dreaming
Do you?

Dream
Do you dream?
Dreaming
Do you?

In my dreams
I can see, I can
I can see a love
That could be ...

by David Crosby/CSN
"In the end, only kindness matters."

Seasons In The Sun
( Terry Jacks )

Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and A B C's
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.

Goodbye my friend it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and I'll be there

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed were just seasons
Out of time......

Goodbye Papa please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
Wonder how I got along.

Goodbye Papa its hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children everywhere
When you see them I'll be there.

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons
Have all gone.

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons
Have all gone.

Goodbye Michelle my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground.

Goodbye Michelle it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers everywhere
I wish that we could both be there

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons
Have all gone

All our lives we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed were just seasons
Out of time......

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun

Somersault - Zero 7

You're the prince to my ballerina
You feed other people's parking meters
You encourage the eating of ice cream
You would somersault in sand with me

You talk to loners, you ask how's your week
You give love to all and give love to me
You're obsessed with hiding the sticks and stones
When I feel the unknown
You feel like home, you feel like home

You put my feet back on the ground
Did you know you brought me around
You were sweet and you were sound
You saved me

You're the warmth in my summer breeze
You're the ivory to my ebony keys
You would share your last belly bean
You would somersault in sand with me

You put my feet back on the ground
Did you know you brought me around
You were sweet and you were sound
You saved me

You put my feet back on the ground
Did you know you brought me around
You were sweet and you were sound
See I had shrunk yet still you wore me around
And 'round and 'round


Your mind can never change unless you ask it to. Lovingly re-arrange the thoughts that make you blue. Massive Attack - What Your Soul Sings

Rick Springfield sorta

If we help one another, na na na na...

You know the path is never easy
No matter which one you might choose
But with you we can do it, together well go thru it, I had no idea your brother was blond

If we help one another, na na na na...

And if you need someone to lean on
Then youll know just who to call
cos with you we can make it, together we can take it, Beer festival was fun

If we help one another, na na na na...

And if you need someone to lean on
Then youll know just who to call
cos with you we can make it, together we can take it, Theives were exposed, Hope to work with your crew again

If we help one another, na na na na...
Na na na na na na...
Loved the Elder

DOUBLE DUTCH BUS
Frankie Smith

Give me a HO if you've got your funky bus fareHO

There's a double dutch bus comin' down the street
Movin pretty fast
So kinda shuffle your feet
Get on the bus and pay your fare
And tell the driver that you're
Goin' to a Double Dutch Affair
Fe Fi Fo Fum
Well I'll be darn here it comes
The Double Dutch Bus is on the street
You'd better get off the curb
Move your feet

Bus fare trans-pass
That's the way my money lasts
Ain't got no car to get around
When I go to work I've gotta go downtown
Now I've missed my train
That's a darn shame
When I'm running late no sleep's to blame
If you've gotta wife you know I'm right
Gotta special man well I can understand
Uptown, downtown everybody's getting down
Say uptown say downtown
Well I've missed my bus I know I'm late
I've gotta do something I knio0w I hate
I'm gonna walk to work fifteen blocks
I already got a hole in my socks
Go ahead and laugh that's okay
Cause what I really wanna say
I got bad feet my corns hurt
To top it off I'm lost for work
Let me tell you what I say
When I'm dealing with the funky sidewalk
Let me show you how to walk
When I gotta do my funky walk
Let me tell you what I say
When I'm dealing with the funky sidewalk
I say sssssssss-sugar

(Rep with children)

Bip, bomp, bam alakazam
But only when you're grooving
With the Double Dutch Man
Put on your skates don't forget your rope
Cause I know I'm gonna see you
At my Double Dutch Show
Rebecca, Lolita, Veshawn and Dawn
Everytime you do the Double Dutch you really turn it on '
Bilzarbra, Mitzery, Milzetty, Kilsan
Titzommy, Kitzerrance, Kilzommy that's my man
Come on get on my Double Dutch Bus
(The Double Dutch Bus)

Let me hear you say do that
(Do that)
Let me hear you say Do that again
(Do that again)
Let me hear you say do the do
Let me hear you say do the do the do
Do the do, do do do do do

one two three ...

Slow Dancing .. U2 .. slightly modified

My love is cruel as the night
I steal the sun and shut out the light
All of your colors they turn to blue
Win or Lose

I do it slow dancing
Slow dancing
I do it slow .... dancing
All night long

Scarlet eyes and a see-through heart
I saw him coming right from the start
I picked him up but had him down on his knees
Just a' beggin' me beggin' me please

Take me slow dancing
Slow dancing
I took him slow....dancing
All night long

And I don't know why a man
searches for himself in his lovers eyes
No I don't know why a man
sees the truth but needs the lies

My love is restless as the wind
I move like a shadow across his skin
I left with his conscience
He dosn't want it back
It just gets in the way..
If you wanna go slow dancing..

Slow dancing
I took him slow ... dancing
All night long

Slow...dancing
Slow...dancing
Slow......

a softer version then
Lets turn the lights Waaay way Down........

Slow Dancing Johnny Rivers

It's late at night we're all alone
With just the music on the radio
No one's coming no ones gonna' telephone
Just me and you and the lights down low
And we're

Slow dancing swaying to the music
Slow dancing just me and my girl
Slow dancing swaying to the music
No one else in the whole wide world
Just you girl

And we just flow together when the
lights are low
Shadows dancing all across the wall
The music's playing so soft and slow
The rest of the world so far away and small
And we're

Slow dancing swaying to the music
Slow dancing just me and my girl
Slow dancing swaying to the music
No one else in th whole wide world

Hold me oohhh hold me
Don't ever let me go

As we dance together in the dark
There's so much love in this heart of mine
You whisper to me Hold me Tight
You're the one I thought I'd never find
And now we're

Slow dancing swaying to the music
Slow dancing just me and my girl
Slow dancing swaying to the music
No else in the whole wide world
Whole wide world
my my my my girl :-)

Terrible Lie - Nine Inch Nails

[Hey God] Why are you doing this to me?
Am I not living up to what I'm supposed to be?
Why am I seething with this animosity?
[Hey God] I think you owe me a great big apology

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie

[Hey God] I really don't know what you mean
Seems like salvation comes only in our dreams
I feel my hatred grow all the more extreme
[Hey God] Can this world really be as sad as it seems?

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie

Don't take it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't tear it, don't tear it, don't tear it, don't tear it, don't

[Hey God] There's nothing left for me to hide
I lost my ignorance, security and pride
I'm all alone in the world you must despise
[Hey God] I believed your promises, your promises and lies!

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
I've had enough of living,I've had enough of dying
I've had enough of smiling, I've had enough of crying
I've taken all the high roads, I've squandered and I've saved...The Who

Carolina In My Mind - James Taylor

In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Maybe just like a friend of mine
It hit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

Karin she's a silver sun
You best walk her way and watch it shinin'
Watch her watch the mornin' come
A silver tear appearing now I'm cryin'
Ain't I goin' to Carolina in my mind

There ain't no doubt it no ones mind
That loves the finest thing around
Whisper something soft and kind
And hey babe the sky's on fire, I'm dyin'
Ain't I goin' to Carolina in my mind

In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Maybe just like a friend of mine
It hit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

Dark and silent last last night
I think I might have heard the highway calling
Geese in flight and dogs that bite
Signs that might be omens say I'm going, going
I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

With a holy host of others standing 'round me
Still I'm on the dark side of the moon
And it seems like it goes on like this forever
You must forgive me
If I'm up and gone to Carolina in my mind

In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina
Can't you see the sunshine
Can't you just feel the moonshine
Maybe just like a friend of mine
It hit me from behind
Yes I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind
I've had enough of living,I've had enough of dying
I've had enough of smiling, I've had enough of crying
I've taken all the high roads, I've squandered and I've saved...The Who

Just been singing along to this one.

Mr Blue Sky - Electric Light Orchestra

Sun is shinin' in the sky,
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin'
Everybody's in a play
And don't you know
It's a beautiful new day. Hey hey hey!

Runnin' down the avenue,(Pant, Pant, Pant)
See how the sun shines brightly
In the city on the streets
Where once was pity,
Mr. Blue Sky is living here today. hey hey hey!

CHORUS: REPEAT
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
You had to hide away
For so long(so long) where did we go wrong.

Hey you with the pretty face,
Welcome to the human race
A celebration Mr. Blue Sky's
Up there waitin' and today
Is the day we've waited for

CHORUS:REPEAT
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
You had to hide away
For so long where did we go wrong. (x2)

Hey there Mr. Blue

here's a cheery one from Hank:

you think you`re gonna to live your life alone
in darkness
and seclusion
yeah I know
you`ve been out there
tried to mix with those animals
and it just left you full of humiliated confusion
so you stagger back home
and wait for nothing
but the solitary refinement of your room spits you back out onto the street
and now you`re desperate
and in need of human contact
and then
you meet me
and your whole world changes
because everything I say is everything you`ve ever wanted to hear
so you drop all your defenses and you drop all your fears
and you trust me completely
I`m perfect
in every way
cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside
you feel so lucky
but your ego obscures reality
and you never bother to wonder why
things are going so well
you wanna know why?
cause I`m a liar
yeah I`m a liar
I`ll tear your mind out
I`ll burn your soul
I`ll turn you into me
I`ll turn you into me
cause I`m a liar, a liar
a liar, a liar

I`ll hide behind a smile
and understanding eyes
and I`ll tell you things that you already know
so you can say
I really identify with you, so much
and all the time that you`re needing me
is just the time that I`m bleeding you
don`t you get it yet?
I`ll come to you like an affliction
and I`ll leave you like an addiction
you`ll never forget me
you wanna know why?
cause I`m a liar
yeah I`m a liar
I`ll rip your mind out
I`ll burn your soul
I`ll turn you into me
I`ll turn you into me
cause I`m a liar, a liar
liar, liar, liar, liar

I don`t know why I feel the need to lie
and cause you so much pain
maybe it`s something inside
maybe it`s something I can`t explain
cause all I do
is mess you up and lie to you
I`m a liar
oh, I am a liar

if you`ll give me one more chance
I swear that I will never lie to you again
because now I see the destructive power of a lie
they`re stronger than truth
I can`t believe I ever hurt you
I swear
I will never to you lie again, please
just give me one more chance
I will never lie to you again
I swear
that I will never tell a lie
I will never tell a lie
no, no
ha ha ha ha ha hah haa haa haa haaa
sucker
sucker!
oh, sucker
I am a liar
yeah, I am a liar
yeah I like it
I feel good
ohh I am a liar
yeah
I lie
I lie
I lie
oh, I lie
oh I lie
I lie
yeah
ohhh I`m a liar
I lie
yeah
I like it
I feel good
I`ll lie again
and again
I`ll lie again and again
and I`ll keep lying
I promise

I've had enough of living,I've had enough of dying
I've had enough of smiling, I've had enough of crying

Carpet Crawlers (short versiion)

The crawlers cover the floor
in the red ochre corridor.
For my second sight of people,
they've more lifeblood than before.
They're moving in time
to a heavy wooden door,
Where the needle's eye is winking,
closing in on the poor.

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

There's only one direction
in the faces that I see;
It's upward to the ceiling,
where the chamber's said to be.
Like the forest's fight for sunlight,
that takes root in every tree,
They are pulled up by the magnet,
believing they're free.

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

Mild mannered supermen
are held in kryptonite,
And the wise and foolish virgins giggle
with their bodies glowing bright.
Through a door a harvest feast
is lit by candlelight;
It's the bottom of a staircase
that spirals out of sight.

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack.
The eager pack lift up their pitchers.
they carry all they lack.
The liquid has congealed,
which has seeped out through the crack,
And the tickler takes his stickleback.

The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

Genesis

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do

And all the things you do

Oh what a thing to have done
And it was Yellow

Your skin

Turn into something beautiful
You know,you know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across

I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do
Cos you were all Yellow

I drew a line

I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all Yellow

Your skin

Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
And you know for you
I'd bleed myself dry for you

Look how they shine for you

Sole Survivor
Blue Öyster Cult


There walked a lonely man
Silent, mute the only man
Not knowing how, not knowing why
Was he the sole survivor?
Why should he be alive
Breathing still while others died
And the only question
Why was he the sole survivor?

Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night

Wind blew across the sand
He stood alone and he had no plan
And with the last rays of the sun
He screamed aloud began to run
In his tears he sees his face
“I am the end of the human race
When I’m gone there’ll be no trace
For I’m the sole survivor”

Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night

One night when years had passed
The sky shook from a fiery blast
And there a starship—saved at last!
To come rescue this survivor
They beckoned him inside
But only man he would not ride
Instead he found a place to hide
For he’s the sole survivor

Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
So ladies, fish and gentlemen
Here’s my angled dream
See me in the blue sky bag
And meet me by the sea

a song that always gets me spine tingling...
(probably not for coldplay fans, tee hee)

Killing Joke - Pssyche
the tune being played 25 years after its initial conception...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oey8x7EzS1o

a few bad words, so i wont reproduce all the lyrics, but i have always loved the lines...

"youre alone in the pack, you feel like you wanna go home..."

and

"dodge the bullets, or carry the gun, THE CHOICE IS YOURS!"

and also this song... "song and dance"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wru4x1XnlS0

"and ways we've lost come marching back now! i feel my ancestors awake!"

due to a lack of trained trumpeters, the end of the world has been postponed indefinitely...

Mary Anne and Wanda
were the best of friends
All through their high school days.
Both members of the 4H Club.
Both active in the FFA.

After graduation
Mary Anne went out lookin'
for a bright new world.
Wanda looked all around this town
and all she found was Earl.

Well it wasn't two weeks
after she got married that
Wanda started gettin' abused.
She put on dark glasses
and long sleeved blouses,
and make-up to cover a bruise.

Well she finally got the nerve
to file for divorce.
She let the law take it from there.
But Earl walked right through
that restraining order,
and put her in intensive care.

Right away, Mary Anne
flew in from Atlanta,
on a red eye midnight flight.
She held Wanda's hand
as they worked out a plan,
and it didn't take long to decide....

That Earl had to die!
Goodbye, Earl!
Those black-eyed peas?
They tasted all right to me, Earl!
You're feeling weak?
Why don't you lay down
and sleep, Earl!
Ain't it dark
wrapped up in that tarp, Earl?

The cops came
to bring Earl in.
They searched the house
high and low
Then they tipped their hats
and said 'Thank You ladies,
if you hear from him, let us know.'

Well the weeks went by and
Spring turned to Summer,
and Summer faded into Fall.
And it turns out that Earl
was a missing person
who nobody missed at all!

So the girls bought some land,
and a roadside stand,
out on Highway 109.
They sell Tennessee ham,
and strawberry jam,
And they don't lose any sleep at night!

'cause Earl had to die!
Goodbye, Earl!
We need a break!
Let's go out to the lake, Earl!
We'll pack a lunch,
and stuff you in the trunk, Earl!
Is that alright?
Good!
Let's go for a ride, Earl!

:-) liken' it all

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up raindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
He put me at ease
Lord he loved me so naughty
Made me weak at my knees
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up raindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

Buddie! "River" is one of my all-time favorite songs!!!!

And I love Robert Downey's new album, as well!

However, I thought you might like to know, that "River" was written (and sung) by Joni Mitchell in 1971! She is my favorite female singer!

Also, in 1995, Heart (who is one of my favorite groups) did a cover of "River" on their live album "The Road Home", which was acoustic, but with orchestra. Interestingly, on their cover of "River", they left out the 3rd verse!!!! I was disappointed with that, but it is still a killer song, and album.

Just a little trivia for ya! (I'm full of it!!)

Take Me Away
Blue Öyster Cult

Strange shapes light up the night
Never seen them though I hope I might
Don’t ask if they are real
The men in black, their lips are sealed

Fantasy fills my mind
To leave this place before my time
Release myself from earthly care
My dream may be your nightmare

I turn my hopes up to the sky
I’d like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
Come on take me away

Come here, girl, close to me
A thousand stars your eyes can see
First one we see tonight
I wish I may I wish I might

I turn my hopes up to the sky
I’d like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
Come on take me away

I turn my hopes up to the sky
I’d like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
So ladies, fish and gentlemen
Here’s my angled dream
See me in the blue sky bag
And meet me by the sea

The Vigil
Blue Öyster Cult
by Donald Roeser and Sandy Roeser
©1979 B. O'Cult Songs, Inc.

In a purple vision vision
Many thousand years ago
I saw the silent stranger stranger
Walk the earth alone

Twenty seven faces faces
With their eyes turned to the sky
I’ve got a camera camera
And an air-tight alibi

I know they’re out there
We see them coming
Faster than the speed of light
They greet us in the dead of night

Somewhere
Someday someone
They’ll be light and sound
They’ll alight on the ground on which we stand
Somewhere
Someday someone
Will help us to survive
They’re gonna show us hell and bring us back alive

Well I’m no poet
But I can’t be fooled
The lies don’t count
The whispers do
I hear the whispers on the wind
They say the earth has fallen due

We run in circles
Our days are numbered
Every night I look away
To the heavens and I pray

Come to us
Come to us
Come to us
Come to us

Our lights are dim
Our roads are crumbling down
And we don’t know what to do
We’re sick and tired and dying to meet you meet you
Cause we bit off more than we can chew
So ladies, fish and gentlemen
Here’s my angled dream
See me in the blue sky bag
And meet me by the sea
