TORNADO COVER WITH TITLES.jpg

Tornado

Made my mind up

Gonna give up on you

And that’s a shame ‘cause you know 

What we’ve been through

But there’ll be no more lies

No excuses and no alibis

No more sweeping this under the table

From where I’m standing and from what I can see

You’re just one big catastrophe

Spinning round and round

In your tornado

And after all

You’d think I’d learned by now

To stay away from a tornado

And after all

You’d think I’d learned by now

To stay away from a tornado

Thought I’d give us 

One more try

But that was only before 

Your last lie

You burned me one last time

And I a’int  gonna sit around crying

Not while I’m still willing and able

Kind of sad to see us end this way

What were you thinking anyway?

That I’d never see the light of day

Through your tornado

And after all

You’d think I’d learned by now

To stay away from a (your) tornado

Some Other Time

Some other time some other place

Some other time some other place in time

We become the light and the truth

We become the essence of our souls

We become infinite wisdom

We become all that’s ever known

You can’t imagine

The wind across the ocean or the earth that you walk on

That star in the distant night or a word never spoken

And all that can be imagined and all that will ever be

Every Emotion and every fantasy

You can’t imagine

The present moment the future the past

The touch that awakens the soul the die that’s been cast

The moon and the tides on a crystal clear night

Where dreams become reality in the blink of an eye

You can’t imagine

Some other time some other place

Some other time some other place in time

We become the light and the truth

We become the essence of our souls

We become infinite wisdom

We become all that’s ever known

You can’t imagine

Backs to the Wall 

Here we are once again

Backs to the wall face to the wind

Never thought I’d see you again

But here we are face to the wind

We’ve been down this road too many times

When will we realize your heart belongs…with mine

Backs to the wall

Face to the wind

We’ve been here before we can do this again

Backs to the wall face to the wind

Have faith my love, my friend

Backs to the wall face to the wind

We’ve been down this road too many times

When will we realize your heart belongs – belongs!!!... with mine

Backs to the wall

Face to the wind

And so our new journey begins

Backs to the wall face to the wind

Never break, never bend

Backs to the wall face to the wind

We’ve been down this road too many times

When will we realize your heart belongs - belongs!!!...with mine

Backs to the wall

Face to the wind

If You Could Do This All Again 

If you did this all again

Oh what would you do

Would you live your life the same?

Knowing what you knew

Or would you play things differently

Roll the dice

If you could do this all again 

In another life

I…  just don’t know

From where the winds of fate will blow

If I were to do this all again

How would my life change?

If I were to do this all again

Would I still be who I am?

If I saw your face somewhere

Would I recognize?

Or would I turn and walk away

Into someone else’s life

If I were to do this all again

Even if you could

Knowing what I know right now

I’m not sure that I would

To give up all those sweet memories

All those special times

To never hold my child’s hand

Or look into your eyes 

I…  just don’t know

From where the winds of fate will blow

If we could do this all again

If we could change the past

If we could do it all again

And change what fate may cast…. And change what fate may cast …

Again and Again 

Think by now we’d know what’d take

Think by know we’d found a better way

Think by now we would have learned from our mistakes

But then… We do it again… All over again and again

Our troubled world’s in disarray

Things have changed in so many ways

Life ain’t fair that’s fair to say

But then…We do it again…All over again

The child is starving... again and again

A war is raging... again and again

Another school shooting... again and again

No one’s doing nothing... again and again

Think by now we’d know what is truth

Think by now we’d know just what to do

Think by now all those fools would loose

But then… We do it again…All over again and again

Chorus

Hope our world sees better days

Hope for our sake that it’s not to late

Hope that we can all find our way

Cause then… We can do it again…All over again and again and again and… 

Gotta Let Go

Why are you standing here?

Looking so sad

Why do you worry so?

Can't be that bad Oh ...oh...Oh... oh...

Can't be that bad

The world is a mystery

You can get lost

Holding onto to those things that you love

There’s gonna be costs Oh ...oh...Oh... oh...

There’s gonna be costs

Oh oh, Oh oh, Oh oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh oh

Oh oh, Oh oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh oh, oh

When will you tell yourself?

You’re worthy and kind 

Even in this damaged world

There’s happiness to find Oh ...oh...Oh... oh...

Happiness to find

Can you forgive yourself?

With all that you know

You're holding onto this life too tight

You gotta let go Oh... oh...Oh...oh...

You gotta let go 

Oh oh, Oh oh, Oh oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh oh

Oh oh, Oh oh Oh Oh Oh Oh You gotta let go, you gotta let go, you gotta let go…gotta let go

The Road of Understanding

Doesn’t seem so long ago

You and I were riding on that road

Of understanding 

Understanding and truth

Rolling down this road today

Thinking ‘bout those yesterdays

And wishing I was riding

Along side of you

What a mystery

This life has turned out to be

Seeking out roads that lead you to truth

Counting back the days

A smile comes to my face

Just thinking ‘bout what you and I went through

That was then this is now

There’s no telling when or how

Why we choose

The roads we do

What a mystery

This life has turned out to be

Seeking out roads that lead you to truth

Counting back the days

Smile comes to my face

Just thinking ‘bout what you and I went through

Somewhere along the way

Exactly when its hard to say

Those days just slipped away 

And I lost track of you

But I hope that you’re safe and sound 

Traveling on that road that you’d found

That road of understanding

Understanding and truth

Doesn’t seem that long ago

You and I were riding on that road

Of understanding 

Understanding and truth

Indecision

I’m tired of all this indecision…Make your mind up and tell me what you’re thinking

I can’t go on much longer this way   

I’m tied to those strings that you’re pulling…It’s not fair to me not knowing   

Tell me if you’re here to stay

We’ve shared a love together… faced some rough times together

Think before you throw this all away

I’ve tried to tell you... You’re the only one...

And if you leave me now…Two lives come undone

I’ve tried to tell you... …You’re the only one...

And if you leave me now…Two lives come undone…Two lives that once were one

Go ahead and tell me what you’re feeling…What you’re thinking, tell me what you’re seeing 

In that picture of us today

Cause I’m tired of all this indecision…Make your mind up and tell me what you’re thinking

I can’t go on much longer this way

We’ve shared a love together… faced some rough times together

Think before you don’t throw this all away

I’ve tried to tell you... You’re the only one...

And if you leave me now…Two lives come undone…Two lives that once were one

Cause I’m tired of all this indecision…Make your mind up and tell me what your thinking

I can’t go on much longer this way…can’t go on much longer this way… can’t go on much longer this way…. 

Kilauea's Doing OK 

I know a place where the world and the heavens collide

Where trade winds blow a kiss to those worries goodbye

And all your woes are swept away by the tide

Just take a breath and listen close your eyes

‘Cause my friend Kilauea's doing ok 

The sun keeps shinning through - Mahalo Pele 

Everybody playing some kind of game

We got the sun the sand and the surf and the waves

Ukuleles singing … palm trees sway

Just close your eyes feel the warmth of the rays

'Cause my friend Kilauea's doing ok 

 The sun keeps shinning through - Mahalo Pele

 I know a place where the world and the heavens collide

 Where trade winds blow a kiss to those worries goodbye

 And all your woes are swept away by the tide

 Just take a breath and listen close your eyes

 'Cause my friend Kilauea's doing ok 

 The sun keeps shinning through - Mahalo Pele

 

Out of  Here

Gas is flowing, Wheels are rolling, I'm outta here

Sparks igniting, I'm through with fighting, I'm outta here

You dragged me all over LA’s not so freeways

Through all that smog I just couldn't see

Just how bad, just how bad you were to me

Engines revving, I’m through with begging, I'm outta here

Gears are turning, My mind is burning, I'm outta here

Ain't gonna play those L.A. games with you

Not gonna be your fool no more

My foot’s on the gas shoved down to the floor

Speeds increasing, All your deceiving, I'm outta here

Exhaust is flying, You thought I’s lying, I'm outta here

Nothing left for us to talk about

Except all those lies you were feeding me

I had my fill, it’s time to leave

Don't send any emails, don't try to call me, I forgot your name already

You dragged me all over LA’s not so freeways

Through all that smog I just couldn't see

Just how bad, just how bad you were to me

The 1 to the 101…the 405…the 5 to the 91… the 605… the 405…the 101…

And back to the 1 where it all had started from…

You dragged me all over LA’s not so freeways

Through all that smog I just couldn't see

Just how bad, just how bad you were to me

Don't send any emails, don't try to call me, I forgot your name already

Don't send any emails, not even a text, I forgot your name already

 

Pale Blue Eyes

I can see the sadness that lies...    deep inside

Through the windows of your soul...    pale blue eyes

You're lost in the crowd of thoughts...    that clouds your mind

Where did you go?

Where did my best friend go?

I will wait for you…

I know it's a struggle...    Sometimes it's a curse

And the anger that remains...    only makes it worse

When it seems that your life...    has been blown off course

Where did you go?

Where did my best friend go?

I will wait for you

Just like I wait for the sun to rise in the morning 

Or I wait for the fog to blow away and leave a clear blue sky

I will wait till you can see clearly...    through those pale blue eyes

Those septic thoughts that roll over...    and over again

Remember that our answers...    also lie within

Where truth and meaning and our spirits...    all blend

Where did you go?

Where did my best friend go?

I will wait for you

Just like I wait for the sun to rise in the morning 

Or wait for the fog to blow away and leave a clear blue sky

I will wait till you can see clearly...    through those pale blue eyes

Pale blue eyes, pale blue eyes…

 

Hiding Out in Mexico

Hiding out in old Mexico 

Living off the grid

Thought I’d find myself in Mexico

Well I never did

Sure the weather's fine

And the people too

But the answers you seek 

Are all within you

I went down to Mexico

Running away from some storms

But when I got down to Mexico

It continued to pour

See I found out it's not where you are 

Or what time of day

Cause who you Are’s

Not a time or a place

Holding out in old Mexico

Waiting for a sign

When the rain had stopped and sun came out

I knew it was time

To head on back 

To friends and family

To where my heart

Was meant to be

Oh I'll always love sweet Mexico 

And what she did for me

Her gentle soul, her natural way,

Her grace and beauty

Oh The weather's so fine

And The people too

They’ll be a day

I'll come back to you

I went down to Mexico 

Lived off the grid

Thought I’d to find myself in Mexico

Just maybe I did, well maybe I did 

 

Old Dirt Road Revisited

This life's like an old dirt road

Never know just where it'll go

Ain't no signs along the way

I worked hard all my life

Always tried to do what was right

I made mistakes 

Along the way

Cause this life can lead you astray

You'll never know which is the right or wrong way

Till the end of the road

Life's journey's hard so it's said

Never planned that far ahead

Never know what lies around the bend

So we live our lives day by day

You know this road only goes one way

Where it ends its hard to say

That's for sure

So we head on down this road

Never knowing what we don't know

Never really knowing where this road will go

We met along the road 

She was young and I was felling old

From where grace comes

You just …never …know

This life can lead you astray

You'll never know which is the right or wrong way

Till the end of the road, ‘till the end of the road…

 

It Don’t Get Much Better

I've been working way to hard

 I've been traveling way to far

Looking for something I'd already found

Well it's time to turn around

I’ve been waiting way too long

The fool in me should have known all along

That I could keep waiting But I'd never find

That love and kindness in your eyes

It don't get much better than this

To feel your touch, To taste your kiss

With you by my side, And holding you tight

And when I look into those eyes

Looking in to those eyes

Looking in to those eyes

Looking in to your eyes

Quit my job I’m heading back home

God I hope she hasn’t moved on

This heart is pounding, What a sight to see       

This beautiful women waiting for me

It don't get much better than this

I feel your touch, I taste your kiss

With you by my side, I’m holding you tight

And when I look into those eyes

Looking in to those eyes

Looking in to those eyes

Looking in to your eyes

It don't get much better than this

It don't get much better than this… 

 

Tomorrow

Every night, every light

Reminds me of home

And all those faces that I see

Along side the road

Signs may say and they might tell you

Where you've been yesterday 

But no one really knows which road 

They'll be traveling tomorrow

Tomorrow 

Tomorrow 

Why did she lie?

Why'd I let her go?

Cold wind blows across these hills

The wheels keep rolling

With one less mile to go outside

Santa Rosa

Horizons come but

Then they fall

Into the night time

When I turn my thoughts to her and these endless white lines

She was the woman I loved

But inside still a girl

Wanted to be an actress 

And her stage was the world

She'd say one thing turn me around do another

And in the end she made me her fool

Somehow I still love her

Big sky... Roadsides

You ask yourself why

And the same old scene keeps playing over again in your mind

All these miles make me wonder 

Am I living or is it a lie

Well that's just one more question for the road 

Tomorrow

Why’d I let you go

 

Wondering Why

I've been looking back Through these old eyes

At my life And wondering why

The fates have been So kind to me

With so many people Just trying to survive

I'm wondering why

I had a plan For my life

Crazy as it seems Things worked out alright

The fates have been So kind to me

But I think about the people Just trying to survive 

I'm wondering why

But I think about the people Just trying to survive 

I'm wondering why

I had this dream This humanity

A world that’s kind and Left in peace 

Our fates were all In harmony

And there were no longer people Just trying to survive

No need to wonder why

And there were no longer people Just trying to survive

And rest for these old eyes
