Lyrics from  Dreams that just Won't Let Go

 

GONE

 

ONE MORE DAY AND I'M OUTTA HERE

I'LL GET THAT PAYCHECK AND I'LL DISAPPEAR

I'VE GOT SOME DREAMS THAT JUST WON'T LET GO

AND I'LL REGRET IT IF I NEVER know

SAID MY GOODBYES AND MY PACKING'S DONE

I'LL HIT THE ROAD AT A DEAD RUN

 

I'M TIRED OF WAITING FOR MY LIFE TO FIND ME

GONNA CHASE IT JUST AS FAR AS I NEED TO

GONNA MAKE MYSELF A NEW REALITY

CALL ME CRAZY BUT I WON'T HEAR YOU

'CAUSE I'M GONE

YEAH I'M TELLING YOU SO

I'M GONE

JUST AS FAST AS I CAN GO

 

SMALL TOWN LIFE AIN'T ENOUGH FOR ME

AND SETTLED DOWN IS SOMETHING I CAN'T BE

I'M GOING CRAZY JUST DYING TO KNOW

WHAT'S AROUND THE NEXT BEND IN THE ROAD

AND I'M NOT AFRAID OF WHAT I MIGHT FIND

STAYING HERE I'M JUST WASTING TIME

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

 

OH YOU'D BE TAKING A LOSING BET

IF YOU THINK I'LL RETRACE MY STEPS

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

 

ONE MORE DAY AND I'M OUTTA HERE

I'LL GET THAT PAYCHECK AND I'LL DISAPPEAR

HELLO KITTY BLUES

 

MY TRUCK WON'T PASS INSPECTION

but i don't let it get me down

my wife has a ford escort

i can still get around

but if anyone sees me driving that car

i'll have to leave town

 

you see that car has a steering wheel cover

that i wish i knew how to lose

it's spongy and it's rubbery

and colored pink and blue

that's why i'm sitting here singing

the hello kitty blues

 

well you know hello kitty says

you can never have too many friends

right now my friends respect me

but you know it all depends

if they find out that i been ridin' with her

my days of respect will end

 

well i'm heading down to the corner

to get myself a beer

miss kitty's staring at me

with that red bow on her ear

 

i don't think i deserve this

lord knows i paid my dues

maybe i'll quit drinking

and by some walkin' shoes

at least i won't be living with

these hello kitty blues

BACK THERE AGAIN

 

SWEET TALK AND BIG BLUES EYES

ONLY GETCHA SO FAR IN LIFE

AND THEY ONLY GETCHA SO FAR WITH ME

TRAVELIN' ALONG WITH YOU

JUST LED ME STRAIGHT TO BLUE

AND YOUR TRUE COLORS I SEE

THAT CHARMIN' SMILE DON'T WORK ANYMORE

I'VE BEEN DOWN THAT ROAD BEFORE

 

AND BACK THERE AGAIN

AIN'T WHERE I WANNA BE

LOOK OVER MY SHOULDER

AND THE ONLY THING I SEE'S

ANOTHER BROKEN HEART

THAT I'LL HAVE TO MEND

SO I'M HEADED STRAIGHT AHEAD

AIN'T GOIN' BACK THERE AGAIN

 

YEAH I MADE ONE WRONG TURN

BUT IT DON'T TAKE ME LONG TO LEARN

WHEN I'M NOWHERE BOUND

YOUR LOVE'S A DEAD END STREET

SO I'LL JUST TAKE THESE TWO FEET

AND TURN MYSELF AROUND

I DON'T DO WHAT I'VE ALREADY DONE

YOU'RE WHERE I'M COMING FROM

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

 

I DON'T DO WHAT I'VE ALREADY DONE

YOU'RE WHERE I'M COMING FROM

THE HARD WAY

 

DON'T PUT YOUR FAITH IN SOMEONE ELSE

UNTIL YOU PUT SOME IN YOURSELF

DON'T LIVE TOO SLOW

DON'T FALL IN LOVE TOO FAST

DON'T THINK JUST 'CAUSE IT'S GOOD IT'S GONNA LAST

 

I AIN'T SAYING YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO ME

AND I AIN'T PRETENDING TO KNOW IT ALL

BUT I'VE DONE SOME THINGS

LIVED A LITTLE SPREAD MY WINGS

TOOK TO FLIGHT AND TOOK A FALL

 

DON'T GIVE UP HOPE TOO EASILY

DON'T THINK THAT WHAT THEY SAY IS WHAT THEY MEAN

IF YOU WANNA SLEEP AT NIGHT

TRY TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT

AND IF YOU'RE GOING DOWN DON'T GOT WITHOUT A FIGHT

 

I AIN'T SAYING YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO ME

AND I AIN'T PRETENDING TO KNOW IT ALL

BUT I'VE DONE SOME THINGS

LIVED A LITTLE SPREAD MY WINGS

TOOK TO FLIGHT AND TOOK A FALL

DO WHAT YOU WILL WITH WHAT I HAVE TO SAY

THESE ARE JUST THINGS I LEARNED THE HARD WAY

 

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME BEING SCARED

'CAUSE LIFE WON'T WAIT FOR YOU TO CONQUER YOUR FEAR

JUST JUMP RIGHT IN IT'S SINK OR SWIM

IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE GAME THERE'S NO WAY YOU CAN WIN

 

(rePEAT SECOND CHORUS)

PEOPLE TALK

 

people talk say what they think

think what they say matters to me

they think it matters who's right or wrong

all that stuff in their head

they think that's it's real

beer bottles smashed in the road

see the glitter break the code

 

people talk say that they know

what god thinks - how can that be

they try to tell me what's right or wrong

all that stuff in their head

dangerous zeal

inquisition holy crusade

keep recruiting spread the plague

 

people talk say that they want

someone to drive the wolf from the door

it doesn't matter who's right or wrong

three little pigs are going to war

war on this war on that

orphans get thinner vultures get fat

copyright 2006 by David Simmons

 

nobody's stopping you 

 

we had our usual fight

i'm always wrong and you're always right

You tell me i'm the lucky one

'cause you could be with anyone

and you handed me that line

i've heard a million times

you keep tElling me

one of these days you're going to leave

 

well nobody's stopping you

i don't see any red light

and as far as i'm concerned

you're welcome to leave tonight

i'm tired of all your talk

if you're gonna walk then walk

do what you've gotta do

'cause nobody not me

nobody's stopping you

 

you look kind of surprised

i'm calling you on your goodbye

i know you were expecting to me

to cry and beg and plead

well i've had enough of that life

and i will be better than fine

when you finally walk out that door

tell me boy what are you waiting for

 

(repeat chorus)

sirius and canopus

 

north and south here we are

under the southern cross

sirius and canopus

under the southern cross

jupiter and saturn shine

moonlight fills up the sky

 

stars are shining bright tonight

under the southern cross

you and i are one tonight

under the southern cross

here on this magic bay

here on this happy day

 

norte y sur estamos aqui bajo la cruz de sur

sirius y canopus bajo la cruz del sur

jupiter y saturn brillan

cielo ileno da la luna

estrellas brillan claro bajo la cruz del sur

tu y yo estamos unidos bajo la cruz del sur

en est┴ bahia magica en est┴ dia bendito

better than you

 

i'm talking just to  be talking

and you're listening to every word i say

you're drinking and i'm thinking

i wish we could just stay this way

 

i'm talking you're listening

and there's no way i'd be missing this moment

there's nothing i'd rather do

than look at you look back at me

there's no place i'd rather be

'cause nobody

nobody loves me better than you

 

we're touching just to be touching

and nothing's ever felt so right

we're kissing and i'm wishing

i could always feel this alive

 

we're touching we're kissing

and there's no way i'd be missing this moment

there's nothing i'd rather do

than look at you look back at me

there's no place i'd rather be

'cause nobody

nobody loves me better than you

 

doesn't matter where we go or what we do

your heart just speaks right to mine

you're the only one who loves me through and through

as long as you're by my side

i don't care if

 

we're talking or kissing

any moment just ain't worth missing

if i can spend it with you

and look at you look back at me

there's no place i'd rather be

'cause nobody

nobody loves me better than you

better than you

better than you
