don’t wanna know

Monday, June 10th, 2019

You’re no less than perfect,
But you’re more than real.
You’re untouchable,
How does it make you feel?

And I’m waiting in line to be near you
And I can’t believe my eyes
The kisses are all blown to you every time

But I’d rather leave you
Than see through the fantasy (Yeah)
And I’d rather stay shy and get high
On what could be (Yeah)
I don’t wanna know what you do, where you go
I don’t wanna know (Yeah)
Who you really are

A glistening smile,
A twinkle in your eye
Well, I can smile like that
Just give me a try

And I’ve traveled around just to hear you
And your songs don’t leave my mind
So tell me what should I do
To get you to say hi?

But I’d rather leave you
Than see through the fantasy (Yeah)
And I’d rather stay shy and get high
On what could be (Oh, yeah)
I don’t wanna know what you do, where you go
I don’t wanna know who you really are (No)
Who you are

And I’ve traveled around just to hear you
And your songs don’t leave my mind
So tell me what should I do?

But I’d rather leave you
Than see through the fantasy (Yeah)
And I’d rather stay shy and get high
On what could be (Oh oh oh yeah)
I don’t wanna know what you do, where you go
I don’t wanna know…
I don’t wanna know what you do, where you go
I don’t wanna know
Who you are
Who you are
(Who you are)
Who….
I follow follow
(I follow follow)

we don’t need another hero (thunderdome)

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage,
Can’t make the same mistakes this time.
We are the children, the last generation,
We are the ones they left behind

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

We don’t need another hero,
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

Looking for something we can rely on
There’s got to be something better out there.
Mmmm, love and compassion, their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains.

All the children say,
We don’t need another hero,
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

So what do we do with our lives?
We leave only a mark.
Will our story shine like a light,
Or end in the dark?
Give it all or nothing!

We don’t need another hero, hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
All the children say,
(We don’t need another hero)
We don’t need another hero
(We don’t need to know the way home)
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

go rest high on that mountain

Friday, August 25th, 2017

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren’t afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
And gathered round your grave to grieve
Wish I could see the angels’ faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son

Go to Heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son

holiday lights

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Every year they come around
Spreading cheer down on the ground
Make everywhere I go
A starry night show

Through the windows on the trees
Candy for my eyes to see
Oh how they bring a smile
I feel like a little child
Sitting on top of the world

On this holiday, lights will shine my way
Coming down from above
Giving me all their love
On this holiday, lights are on display
Falling down from the sky
Giving us holla-holiday lights
Holiday lights (Holla-holiday lights)

Up and down the avenue
I see red, green, white, and blue
Just like a rainbow
A gift everybody knows

I got groove, yeah I got beat
When I got lights down on the street
Twisting the night away
How I wish everyday
I’d be the happiest girl

On this holiday, lights will shine my way
Coming down from above
Giving me all their love
On this holiday, lights are on display
Falling down from the sky
Giving us holla-holiday lights

How do they get us walkin out here in the cold?
How do they light up wonderlands made out of snow?
So magical
Why do they have to go?

On this holiday
I hope those lights they stay
Coming down from above
And giving us so much love

On this holiday, lights are on display
Falling down from the sky
Giving us holla-holiday lights
(Shine my way, from above, from above)
Holiday lights are on display
Falling down from the sky
Giving us holla-holiday lights
(Holla-holiday lights)
Holla-holiday lights

dear no one

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

I like being independent
Not so much of an investment
No one to tell me what to do
I like being by myself
Don’t gotta entertain anybody else
No one to answer to

But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold
Someone to give me the jacket when it’s cold
Got that young love even when we’re old
Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand
Pick me up, pull me close, be my man
I will love you till the end

So if you’re out there, I swear to be good to you
But I’m done lookin’
For my future someone
Cause when the time is right
You’ll be here, but for now
Dear no one, this is your love song
Ooo-Oh-Oh

I don’t really like big crowds
I tend to shut people out
I like my space, yeah
But I’d love to have a soulmate
And god’ll give him to me someday
And I know it’ll be worth the wait, oh

So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you
(But I’m done lookin’) But I’m done lookin’
For my future someone
Cause when the time is right
You’ll be here, but for now
Dear no one (Dear nobody) this is your love song (Ooo-Oooh)

Sometimes, I just want somebody to hold
Someone to give me the jacket when it’s cold
Got that young love even when we’re old
Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand
Pick me up, pull me close, be my man
I will love you till the end

So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you
But I’m done lookin’ (I’m done lookin’)
For my future someone (Ooo-Yeah)
Cause when the time is right
You’ll be here, but for now
Dear no one (Dear Nobody) this is your love song (This is your love song)
Dear no one
No need to be searchin’, no
Dear no one
Dear no one
Dear no one, this is your love song

find out who your friends are

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere.
Or get yourself in a bind, lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare

This is where the rubber meets the road
This is where the cream is gonna rise
This is what you really didn’t know
This is where the truth don’t lie

You find out who your friends are
Somebody’s gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get their fast
Never stop to think ‘what’s in it for me?’ or ‘it’s way too far.’
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who you’re friends are

Everybody wants to slap your back
Wants to shake your hand
When you’re up on top of that mountain.
But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down look up
And see who’s around then

This ain’t where the road comes to an end
This ain’t where the bandwagon stops
This is just one of those times when
A lot of folks jump off

You find out who your friends are
Somebody’s gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get there fast
Never stop to think ‘what’s in it for me?’ or ‘it’s way too far.’
They just show on up with that big old heart
You find out who you’re friends are

When the water’s high,
When the weather’s not so fair,
When the well runs dry,
Who’s gonna be there?

You find out who your friends are
Somebody’s gonna drop everything
Run out and crank up their car
Hit the gas, get there fast
Never stop to think ‘what’s in it for me?’ or ‘it’s way too far.’
They just show on up with their big old heart
You find out who you’re friends are,
You find out who you’re friends are

Run your car off the side of the road
Get stuck in a ditch way out in the middle of nowhere.
Oh man I’ve been there.
Or get yourself in a bind, lose the shirt off your back
Need a floor, need a couch, need a bus fare
Man I’ve been there
Man I’ve been there

futon

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

You’re right, new things are great
They shine and they’re never late
Don’t break down on the interstate
You’re right, new things are great

Good point, money ain’t everything
But honey, having none sure stings
I love angels but I need kings
Good point, money ain’t everything

I know that I can’t buy
Happiness or love or time
But if anything could be mine
Then what I’d do is take Fifth Avenue
Niagara Falls too
And maybe everything blue
And what I’d rather do
Is just stay right here with you
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)

So much for being brave
When chivalry is aftershave
And what you drive is how you weigh in or out
So let’s say hypothetically
That I own the Baltic Sea
To sink or swim, you’ve got to ask please
Would I feel better if I had the keys?

I know that I can’t buy
Happiness or love or time
But if anything could be mine
Then what I’d do is take Fifth Avenue
And what Picasso drew
Or the mountains of Peru
And what I’d rather do
Is just stay right here with you
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)

So c’mon baby, pass the grass
Is the remote underneath your ass?
Cause I can’t find it anywhere
Mmmm baby I should run downstairs
And grab us both a sweet Coldstone
You want a cup or a waffle cone?
Or happiness or love or time?

Or maybe I’ll just take Fifth Avenue
I’ll take the pyramids too
And maybe classes in kung fu or jiu jitsu
And what I’d rather do
Is just stay right here with you
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)

Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)
Laying on your futon (futon, futon)

don’t fence me in

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
But don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in

Let me be by myself in the evenin’ breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don’t fence me in

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western skies
On my cayuse, let me wander over yonder
Till I see the mountains rise

I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
Gaze at the moon till I lose my senses
I can’t look at the hobbles and I can’t stand fences
Don’t fence me in

Alright
(Land, lots of land, lots of land, lots of land
Land, lots of land, starry skies above
Starry skies above, starry skies above
Land, lots of land, lots of land, lots of land)

Let me be by myself in the evenin’ breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I beg you please
Don’t fence me in

Oh no, don’t fence me in

i wanna be a christmas tree

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

Razbo: Gee Vince, do you think we’ll ever find a Christmas tree?
Vince: Well you know, Razbo, I wish I was a Christmas tree.

Twirl: Really, Vince?
Vince: Yeah I could be one, Twirl, I wish I was a Christmas tree!

I wanna be a Christmas tree
And have twinkle lights all over me
Golden star on top of my head
Stay up all night and never go to bed.

I wanna be a Christmas tree
Eat candy canes they hung on me
If I got thirsty, it’d be so neat
To see me drink water from my feet

That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!
(That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!)

I wanna be a Christmas tree
I could sing and dance on MTV
My arms for branches and have green hair
And pine cones in my underwear

I wanna be a Christmas tree
I’d be the bestest tree in history
Tinsel on my nose I’d look so fine
My underarms would smell like pine

That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!
(That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!)

Everyone would love me
My friends would say I’m cool
I’d be a tree that’d throw footballs
And ride my bike to school

(That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!)

I wanna be a Christmas tree
Mom and dad put my presents under me
Since I’d be a tree, wouldn’t make a peep
Open up my presents when they go to sleep

That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!
(That’s why I wanna be a Christmas tree!)

That’s why I wanna be, that’s why I wanna be, that’s why I wanna be a
Christmas tree!

signs

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

And the sign says, “Long haired freaky people need not apply”
So I put my hair under my hat and I went in to ask him, “why?”
He said, “You look like a fine outstanding young man,
I think you’ll do”
So I took off my hat, I said, “Imagine that, huh? Me? Working for you?”

Oh, signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs
Blocking up the scenery, breaking my mind
“Do this”, “don’t do that”, “can’t you read the sign?”

And the sign says, “Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight”
So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house
“Hey, what gives you the right?
To put up a fence and keep me out or to keep Mother Nature in?
If God was here, He’d tell it to your face, ‘Man you’re some kind of sinner’.”

Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs
Blocking up the scenery, breaking my mind
“Do this”, “don’t do that”, “can’t you read the sign?”

Oh but say now, “Mister, can’t you read?
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can’t watch, no you can’t eat,
You ain’t supposed to be here”

And the sign says, “You gotta have a membership card to get inside”, uuh

And the sign says, “Everybody welcome. Come in, kneel down and pray”
But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all
And I didn’t have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign
I said, “Thank you, Lord, for thinking about me, I’m alive and doing fine”

Signs, signs everywhere, there’s signs
Blocking up the scenery, breaking my mind
“Do this”, “don’t do that”, “can’t you read the sign?”

Signs, signs everywhere, there’s signs
Blocking up the scenery, breaking my mind
“Do this”, “don’t do that”, “can’t you read the sign?”
