Lyrics

Gap Tooth Smile


 

There ain’t nothing like brown eyes and a gap tooth smile

You’re my little big guy settin’ up the baddest style

With not a lot to say about it

You’ve got a lot to play about right now


 

Hold my hand please child

There’ll be plenty of time in your life for running wild

And though you’ve been here before or you don’t remember everything

That’s what your mama’s for

To remind you how to sing


 

So bring it, bring it down

Spin your body round and round

Though you’ve been here before you don’t remember everything

That’s what your father’s for

To remind you how to swing


 

Now when you find the summer sky

Has all but turned to gray

Be kind to yourself and to others anyway

It’s just a thing that so many of us let escape our minds

But you can’t escape that truth you find


 

So bring it, spread it round

Up-turn illusions, bring the curtains down

Though you’ve been here before you don’t remember everything

That’s what your life is for

To remind you how to dream


 

So hold my hand please child

They’ll be plenty of time in your life for all of your wiles

And now you’re back again, won’t you hear what I say?

There’s just a little time so my boy

Take it away


 


 

Road To the Sun


 

Gliding over your ridge

High above a neon pilgrimage

Orphaned from the sun

It’s here we can be made whole

Swimming in the silence birthing is all

Falling fast in love


 

So flow your form into me

Dance like drifting drops of mercury

With constellation eyes

A soul’s anticipation

Every minute gone like years to the fly

Don’t you pass me by


 

Drop your soft silhouette into the dream we share

Under willow trees and make me see where heaven meets the air

When that kiss of the peak of our hips has passed

I’ll just sink down, slow through the sand of your hourglass


 

Our hearts can’t go back

The lens of our sweat, baby it’s like the Looking Glass

Refracting us through time

So set the form of your grace free

Feel it echoing like waves of the sea

Against my mountainside


 

And drop that soft silhouette into the dream we share

Under willow trees and make me see where heaven meets the air

Angel wings in your eyes

Sing your name up to the skies

Follow me for our wills to collide


 


 

Ernie’s Song


 

The sun is sinking, I’m driving out West

I’ll follow your trail to where you want to rest

You lived your life like you wanted to be,

Kept standing like a great oak tree, 

standing like a great oak tree

 

How many moons till you sleep?

How many moons till you sleep? (2 beats)

 

I see you when I was a child, 

laughing loud, drinking wild

If there’s one thing you always said to me,

“Child, don’t be mild, child, don’t be mild…”

 

How many moons till you sleep?

How many moons till you sleep?

 

Your words are gone now, you mumble love,

You’re being called from above

You lived the way you wanted to be

Said “Take no prisoners, child, just be free, 

take no prisoners, just stay free.”

 

How many moons till you sleep?

How many moons till you sleep?

 

At the end, I held your hand

All I could say was what a great man

I took you up on an airplane high

Said, “Come on, Ernie, it’s time to fly! 

Come on Ernie, it’s time to fly!”

 

How many moons till you sleep?

How many moons till you sleep?

Lift off now with your rocket fuel,

Lift off now, Ern we love you!!! (4 beats)


 


 

Natural Flow

 

Let me tell ya bout a girl I know she dance like a river everywhere she goes

When she let it flow it just shake my bones


 

The sun don’t need to think about its shine and she don’t need to think about the way she fine

She just let it flow so natural 


 

The spring buds popping and they call her name she walking on air and make the angels sing

When she let it flow it just lift my soul


 

Her eyes love easy and they got that spark she never had to try to make it in my heart she just let it flow so natural


 

She ain’t never need to do no thing to be that sweetest peach I ever seen

babygirl I need ya close to me

And if patience gotta be the key I’m gonna wait until your stop sign turning green


 

Her eyes start batting and it make me smile so baby can i beg ya just to stay a while

When you let it flow it’s so wonderful 


 

I’m a fool for ya baby and for what it’s worth

Your the raindrop rhythm serenading my earth 

you just let it flow so natural 


 

She ain’t never need to do no thing to be that sweetest peach I ever see

a hearts ramble brought me to my knees and if patience gotta be the key I’m gonna wait until your stop sign turning green


 

You flip me baby had me from the start you never had to try to make it in my heart 

you just let it flow so natural


 


 

You Got Me


 

Don't leave me baby
 

Stand here beside me

What we got is something 

So few are finding

Imbued with a grace

We're staring gods in the face


 

You're all I ever wanted

Just name it and you got it

I'm gonna do my part in

Keeping these two hearts

Happy and free

Baby, you got me


 

When I'm feeling afraid

You're telling me I'm okay

Just be myself and you'll stay

We'll let our hearts just play

The way only they know how


 

I'll follow you into the nothing

There might as well be nothing

'Cause if I lose you the world would lose its luster

Oh, let me keep this peace

And Baby, you can keep me


 

I'll follow you into the nothing

There might as well be nothing 

'Cause if I lose you the world would lose its luster

Oh, let me keep this peace

And Baby, you can keep me


 

You help the World love the Sun

Lord knows what we've done

I think we released the angels

Smiling faces, cage-less

Singing all of their graces


 

It's all we ever wanted

Let's show the world we got it

Fuck the cage and locks

We're doing our part in keeping

Our love happy and free

Baby, you got me

Baby, you got me

Baby, we've got we


 

 

So Many Someones


 

I love, I love
I hope you pick this up one day
I hope these words are gonna stay
The ones I write when I try to say
Something that comes close to true

I hope, I hope
The man that passed me yesterday
Keeps that ragged smile and finds time to play
Has moments in his life that make
Days like this worth the ache

Sun is shining on my body
I feel beautiful and I wanna cry
I am so happy and I don't wanna die
I love my family
And the years are flying by
I still crave a connection
So many someones in my life

I dream, I dream
A million things I wanna see
A million ways I wanna be
Can't have it all, you've gotta choose
Time and time again, what moves you

I am true, I am true
And I learned early on
Be true to myself and be true to someone
Let's be real, we are the final judge
Flying straight and we already won

Sun is shining on my body
I feel beautiful and I wanna cry
I am so happy and I don't wanna die
I love my family
And the years are flying by
I'm still craving a connection
So many someones in my life

 

 

 

To Live Is To Fly


 

Won’t say I love you babe

Won’t to say I need you baby

But I’m going to get you babe and I will not do you wrong


 

Living’s mostly wasting time

And I waste my share of mine

But it never feels too good so let’s not take too long


 

Well your soft as glass and I’m a gentle man

We’ve got the sky to talk about and the world to lay upon 


 

Days up and down they come

Like rain on a conga drum

Forget most, remember some

But don’t turn none away


 

Everything is not enough

Nothing is too much to bear

Where you been is good and gone

All you keep is the gettin’ there


 

Well to live is to fly, both low and high

So shake the dust off of your wings and the sleep out of your eyes


 

It’s goodbye to all my friends

It’s time to go again 

Think of all the poetry and the pickin’ down the line

And I’ll miss the system here

The bottom’s low and the treble’s clear

But it don’t pay to think too much on the things you'll leave behind


 

Well I will be gone but it won’t be long 

I’ll bring back all the melodies and 

The rhythms that I find


 

We all got holes to fill and them holes is all that’s real

Some fall on you like a storm

Sometimes you dig your own 

The choice is yours to make

The time is yours to take

Some dive into the sea

Some toil upon the stone


 

Well to live is to fly, both low and high

So shake the dust off of your wings and the sleep out of your eyes

Shake the dust off of your wings and the tears out of your eyes


 

 

Make Me Down a Pallet On Your Floor


 

So make me down a pallet on your floor

Make me down a pallet on your floor

Make me down a pallet soft and low

‘Cause Babe I’m broke and I’ve got nowhere to go


 

The way I sleep my back and shoulders tire

Way I sleep my back and shoulders tire

Come tomorrow I’ll be satisfied

On that California train I’ll ride


 

Weary blues, honey everywhere I see

Weary blues, honey everywhere I see

Sun of sorrow shining down on me

Ain’t no way these blues will let me be


 

Doctors, how they treat you nice and fine

Doctors, how they treat you nice and fine

So they put you very first in line

When you got a dollar and a dime


 

So make me down a pallet on your floor

Make me down a pallet on your floor

Make me down a pallet soft and low

‘Cause Babe I’m broke and I got nowhere to go

 

 

 

When the Blues Walk Away 


 

Ain’t put no lines down since the blues walked away

Ain’t put no lines down since the blues walked away

Just sit and watch the cold steps catching dirty rain

With the words that rot the rhyme of what I’ll never learn to say 

Ain’t put no lines down 

Ain’t put no lines down since the blues walked away 


 

Some find that good news it ain’t good enough to preach it for free

When it’s the numbers that’ll make your god flash across the tv screen

There a heart full off scars can have the world to say

Don’t make a dead mans difference on Election Day

It don’t put no lines down 

Don’t put no lines down when the blues walk away


 

Lips of red off with his head at the princess request

With a scarecrow hanging from a tree just over the fence 

All hands on the money like it set you free

Build a paper castle wage a war upon the breeze

It don’t put no lines down

Don’t put no lines down when the blues walk away 


 

And the frostbite stick ya when you walk the dog in the cold

You dance like the fabric stuck halfway up the damn pole

Now the sun keeps a shine if the shining ain’t seen

Down on the stone till the walls don’t bleed

It don’t put no lines down

Don’t put no lines down when the blues walk away


 


Goodbye Elijah

 

Goodbye Elijah

Here, lies fall just like tears from our eyes

We’re at the end of the line with the darkness behind

I’m following that light

Eyes are widening

Therein lies the dream

 

Hang your halo, from this angle I can see

Your wings will unfold

Limbs are falling off

Your lover is over it all

We’ve said it all

 

Goodbye Elijah, it’s time to fly

There’s no life left on this side

Celebrate at our wake 

And blow out the flame

Let’s pour another drink 

I break your heart, you try to break me

Even it up, two losers at one game

It’s insane

Break through the membrane

 

We can win this

We can win this
