Lyrics

1. BLIND WITH HASTE
Time is like an arrow
Draw your bowstring tight
Let it loose and in a blink
It vanishes in flight
One more night I’m in this room
One more night you’re not
As the sky rolls out before me
I think of all we’ve got
CHORUS
The ticking of the clock
beats in my ear
On this moonlit mile
I’m wishing you were here
There’s so much that
we need not lay to waste
Yet time and time again
we’re blind with haste
Work and love and play it seems
I can’t read those blurry lines
Sometimes these eyes just see the dark
No matter how damn bright she shines
One more day I sleep away
One more day you don’t
The night’s caress it says forget
This time I swear I won’t
CHORUS
FORGIVE ME IF I PULL YOU OUT THE DOOR
IT’S SO LOVELY OUT AND I JUST WANT TO SPEND
THE WHOLE NIGHT WALKING HAND AND HAND WITH YOU
‘CAUSE BABY WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S ‘ROUND THE BEND

2. LEARNING YOU BY HEART
Back when we were kids
Hanging out in school
No one ever called me clever
I just played the fool
But when you smiled I paid attention
I remember from the start
Didn’t know what i was doing
But I was learning you by heart
Learning you by heart
Couldn’t wait for graduating
Get gone, have myself a ball
But my voice inside kept whisp’ring
I want you most of all
I could hear that train at midnight
Calling me away
But you kissed me in the moonlight
And I knew that I would stay
Live my life beside you
Never want to be apart
And I’ve grown in understanding
Learning you by heart
Learning you by heart
Through all our years of living
I’ve come to realize
I’ve been learning love forever
Looking in your loving eyes
And we will sing together
Gonna live our melody
Never singing solo
The closest harmony
Our song was always in us
It was right there from the start
And my life has been a love song
Learning you by heart
Learning you by heart
Learning you by heart

3. LAY YOUR DAGGER DOWN
You tell me you can’t read me
Don’t know what I’m about
I know damn well you don’t need me
Just as soon as tune me out
Ain’t got no direction
No eyes on the prize
No desire for perfection
Honey, try that on for size
Chorus
You tell me I’m a joker, A two-bit clown
Babe I think it’s time
You lay your dagger down.
You tell me to get with it
Come up with a plan
Can’t see no beauty in the flames
The fire just don’t fan
The devil’s in the details
He’ll suck your juice away
I’m tossing pebbles at your window
But you won’t come out and play
Chorus
It feels so damn good
Not to update my status
To sync up my day
On yet another apparatus
No need to be tweeted
Poked or liked or shared
The way this world is moving, honey
Got me downright scared
Chorus
Ducking all your blows, It’s getting harder to take it
This armor breaks my back, I think it’s time to shake it
Chorus

4. OUR YOUNGER DAYS
SORRY FOR ALL OF THE NIGHTS I SPENT AWAY
SORRY TOO FOR WASTING OH SO MANY OF YOUR PRECIOUS DAYS
NIGHT FALLS , I POP THE LATCHES ON THIS OLD GUITAR CASE
STILL I JUST CAN’T HELP NOW BUT TO LONG
FOR YOUR LOVING EMBRACE.
CHORUS
IN OUR YOUNGER DAYS MAYBE WE STOOD A CHANCE
SEEMS LIKE EVERY TURN WE TOOK WAS WRONG
I KNOW MY CRAZY WAYS AND SO -CALLED CIRCUMSTANCE
LEFT ME SITTING ALONE WITH THIS SAD SONG
THE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER IT’S BEEN SAID
I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THERE’LL BE NO MORE
MY SIDE OF THE BED
ANOTHER MILE DOWN OLD I-5
I GUESS ITS MY FATE
DOWN IN MY HEART I KNOW
THIS TIME YOU JUST WON’T WAIT
CHORUS
IF I COULD TURN BACK
THE HANDS OF TIME
STILL DON’T KNOW IF I COULD UNDO THE CRIME
OF TURNING A BLIND EYE TO WHAT’S IN FRONT OF ME
AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S TOO LATE TO LEARN TO SEE
CHORUS

5. MARIA LUISA
Weekend party came and went
Like a flicker in a fire
Everybody gettin down, Also gettin higher
Hottest time was had by all, Coolest dude was me
Nonchalantly layin back
To see what I could see
I saw her–mmmmmm, A dancin honey bee
CHORUS
Mar ia Luisa, Wow! Ca tch your breath!
Mar ia Luisa, Tease ya half to death
Swingin hips, laughin lips, Check out every man
He’s got thirty seconds
Catch me if you can
Is this sexy? Or a short attention spa n?
Hey! She’s floatin my way
Holdin out her hand
Closer and closer
More than I can stand
Forget your thirty seconds
Can I slow her down?
Next thing we’re dancin like
There’s no one else around
Her and me
Slow dancin–horizontally
CHORUS
MARIA LUIS A, WHAT CAN I SAY
MARIA LUIS A, BLEW ME AWAY
SIX WAYS FROM SUND AY, ROUND THE WO RLD AND BACK AGAIN
WAYS I NEVER THOUGHT OF AND THEN AND THEN AND THEN
COULDN ’T COUNT ‘EM ALL ELEVEN OUT OF TEN
Mornin hits me like a brick
Sunlight burns my eyes
Sticky sheets and bacon grease
The swarmin of the flies
Where’s Maria? Can’t see her
Was she only in my head?
Ca n’t remember, A single word she said
Ohh Bloody Mary save me
Crawl back to bed
CHORUS
Mar ia Luisa, What do I know?
Mar ia Luisa, Come and go
The parkin lot was empty As she made her getaway
I didn’t know or even care To find the time of day
Mar ia Luisa, don’t look back, You’re on your way

6. DON’T POSTPONE JOY
The sunset glow it sweetly sings
the day’s goodbye
Climbing moon it lights an empty sky
A laughing song of children
coming home from play
I watch it all unfold and i breathe a sigh
A timeless bridge extends
throughout the ages
The harmony of wind and leaves astir
This wondrous gift of days and empty pages
Seems out of reach to those lost in the blur
Are they trying hard to find
what’s better left behind?
Caring only for themselves
and seeing not what they destroy
On the endless road they’re on
to postpone joy
Chorus
Baby you and me
won’t postpone joy
Our time here in this life
is much too brief
I don’t want to see us
washed away in grief
So baby you and me
won’t postpone joy
The truth is that I just could not
lay down at night
Knowing that I never gave a try
Working with what’s at hand
While walking through this land
With a love like yours and mine
The broth it just won’t cloy
And never will we need to postpone joy
Chorus

7. TROUBADOUR
GOT THAT MUSIC POUNDIN IN YOUR HEAD
BUSTIN FOR THE WORLD TO CALL YOUR NAME
HOT LIGHTS , SPOTLIGHTS , HEADLINES IN RED
RUNNIN FOR THE MONEY AND THE FAME
CHORUS
SEARCHIN FOR THE REASON FAR AND WIDE
NOT FINDIN ALL THAT MUCH ALONG THE WAY
TROUBADOUR, TROUBADOUR, BURNIN HOT INSIDE
PICK UP TH AT HOT GUIT AR, IT ’S TIME TO PLAY
FINGERPICKIN ALL THEM PRETTY GIRLS
SIGNIN BREASTS WITH
SHARPIES ALL NIGHT LONG
THE HOTTEST WOMEN
IN THE WHOLE HOT WORLD
SHUFFLIN YOUR SET LIST
MOVIN ON
CHORUS
NOT SEARCHIN
FOR THE REASON ANYMORE
YOU’RE THE ONE
THAT ALWAYS WALKS AWAY
SLAM THE DOOR, SLAM THE DOOR
TROUBADOUR, TROUBADOUR
PIC K UP TH AT NEW GUITAR,
IT’S TIME TO PLAY
YOU PUT YOUR FAITH
IN THREE CHORDS AND THE TRUTH
THAT WAS THE RELIGION OF YOUR YOUTH
THE MUSIC WAS YOUR LOVER ALL ALONG
LEFT YOU SEARCHIN FOR THE LAST VERSE TO YOUR SONG
CHORUS
SEARCHIN FOR THE REASON FOR IT ALL
IT WAS MUSIC TAUGHT YOU HOW TO PRAY
MUSIC’S WHAT YOU’RE PRAYIN FOR
TROUBADOUR, TROUBADOUR
Pick up your old guitar , it’s time to play
pick up your old guitar , it’s time to play
pick up that song again, it’s time to play

8. COLD SUNDAY
Well I’m countin on cold Sunday
To get me out the door
Yeah, when cold Sunday gets here
I’ll peel me off the floor
They say it takes one to know one
I say it takes a whole lot more
Oh, I got the news this mornin
Oh, bout half pa st nine
But three decent cups of coffee
I still don’t feel in line
They say a hard rain’s comin
You couldn’t paint no clearer sign
Oh, fire up the still, boy
Down to that last barrel now
Play me that old song, son
I don’t remember how
There’s plenty water needs a bailin
Oh, from stern to bow
Oh, the river’s rushin har d now
Levee’s gonna bust
I’m pacin round my attic
Musty memories and dust
Can’t even spell nostalgia
Can’t get it up for lust
I heard a soft wind whisperin
On my windowpane
There ain’t nothin gonna drown out
The beatin of the rain
Wet ass, no fish
Can’t wash away the stain
Oh, I’m countin on cold Sunday
To get me out the door
When cold Sunday gets here
I’ll peel me off the floor
They say it takes one to know one
I say it takes a whole lot more

9. MY LATEST OFFERING
The wind it whips up steady
These dusty miles that I drive
Some days the ghosts of the choices I’ve made
Feel like they’ll bury me alive
Chorus
We all find our share of darkness
As we stumble towards the light
Honey, here’s my latest offering
I hope the time is right
Gonna lay it on the table
Like I never done before
We’ll ford this rocky river
Eyes fixed on yonder shore
Chorus
We all find our share of darkness
As we stumble towards the light
Honey, here’s my latest offering
Let’s end this weary fight
In the dream you whispered forgiveness
I awoke to a cold bed again
The waking hours they cry out let’s live this
I’ll row this boat until you say when
On the rolling road before us
New songs they surely lie
Let’s take this dance even if we fall flat
Can’t say that we never tried
Chorus
We all find our share of darkness
As we stumble towards the light
Honey, here’s my latest offering
Let’s hold each other tight

10. CAROUSEL
Out here this freedom of the road
It can wash your view to grey
I just can’t say how much I miss you
And I long for you today
These networks of technology
Still can’t build a bridge between you and me
I’ll try now once again to sing my blues away
CHORUS
This carousel
It can be a sweet ride
Oh, you know it’s so much easier
When you’re riding by my side
Sometimes it’s hard to keep believing
There’s a golden ring
But it’s damn sure worth a try
When I feel the love you bring
Some days the movie that I’m in
It seems to go nowhere
The direction just seems aimless
The plot dull beyond repair
I guess there’s still the option
Of a brand new cast and crew
But all these walking papers
They just seem unfair
CHORUS
Through each and every season
You know love will find its day
And through the darkness void of reason
You are the sun that lights my way
CHORUS

11. FIND YOUR WAY BACK HOME
In the cold of night I shiver
Thinking how our time together slipped on by
You never failed to deliver
I just think of you now and I sigh
CHORUS
Find your way back home
My baby it’s been too long
Honey, you’re my muse
And without you I got no song
Tides and seasons turning
Somehow it all just feels the same
And the perfect storm’s a-churning
But it’s not too late in the game
CHORUS
Through with second guessing
Things we’ve always known
It’s time to count our blessings
‘Ca use nothing’s set in stone
CHORUS
Convenience ain’t always
the right road to take
And a love so true,
my babe, you just can’t fake
CHORUS

12. WILDFIRE
Lately it seems
every hour every day
My thoughts, love, you occupy
Stately you gleam
in your own precious way
Can’t snuff out your flame
though I try
CHORUS
Like a wildfire
burning out of control
Ain’t no way I could have prepared
Amazing, blazing
You tore a path through my soul
There ain’t no way I’d take back
The days or the love that we shared
Jet black hair up in a bun
Chopsticks, black hear t tattoo
It’s been real
but we’ve had our run
She said neath the burning blue
Ha lf-lit neon flicker
Of the Seahorse bar and grill
The smoke felt that much thicker
To this day I still feel the chill
CHORUS
Sifting through the ashes
I came across a jewel
Surviving all your lashes
Nothing else can be so cruel

13. THE LONG RUN
Down the country road
Called the long run
Travel on
In the morning sun
Looking to find
The meaning of the sign
Down the country road
Called the long run
On the speeding train
Called yesterday
I watch as the last boxcar
Fades away
Hear the whistle down the track
No turning back
On the speeding train
Called yesterday
In the pool of dreams
Called tomorrow
Not looking
To see sorrow
My life’s my own
Skip like a stone
In the pool of dreams
Called tomorrow
In the endless book
Called true love
There’s a page that fits my heart
Like a hand fits a glove
Lay like lovers
Between the covers
In the endless book
Called true love
Down the country road
Called the long run
Heading home
For the setting of the sun
Me and my wife
Loving our life
Down the country road
Called the long run
