The space between

Take my hand ’cause we’re walking out of here Right out of here Is all we need dear The space between What’s wrong and right Is where you’ll find me hiding waiting for you The space between your heart and mind Is the space we’ll fill with time The space between The tears we cry…

Bayou

I can remember the fourth of July runnin’ through the backwood bare. And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin’ chasin’ down a hoodoo there Chasin’ down a hoodoo there. Born on the bayou Born on the bayou Born on the bayou. Wish I was back on the bayou rollin’ with some Cajun…

In the corner

Somebody said you got a new friend But does she love you better than I can? And there’s a big black sky over my town I know where you’re at I bet she’s around And yeah I know it’s stupid, but I just gotta see it for myself I just wanna dance all night And…

Yushiko

Late this spring night, a red flower Drops one petal on my breast, two on my hat. I’m feeling pretty and whistling All the way to the city where you live. In the brief hours of the secret night, Drunk on sweet sake, Listening to fairy tales, we close our eyes Like the kitten on…

Play, rest, repeat Read exactly what is written on the sheet “Don’t deviate,” they say But I will play what’s best for me I’ll press the keys and pull the strings Create a symphony that’s mine And I’ll spend my life Penning my song, my song And the verses I write Will speak for me…

Come see me at the greenhouse

Come see me at the greenhouse In the back yard Come see me at the oak tree With our names carved in the bark Come see me at the train tracks Bring some pennies for old time’s sake Even though I’m gone There’s some memories that you need to take, with you Now you’re working…

Forever can never be long enough for me To feel like I’ve had long enough with you Forget the world now, we won’t let them see But there’s one thing left to do Now that the weight has lifted Love has surely shifted my way Marry me Today and every day Marry me If I…

Don’t cry, snowman, not in front of me Who’ll catch your tears if you can’t catch me, darling If you can’t catch me, darling Don’t cry, snowman, don’t leave me this way A puddle of water can’t hold me close, baby Can’t hold me close, baby Let’s go below zero And hide from the sun…

Winter Walk

I’d like to take a winter walk today The sky is gray And the air Is as cold as ice cream In the morning look across the lake There isn’t anything But at night on the ice With the traffic lights The cardinal dreams a song to sing About the coming spring And the wind…

Almost Halloween

I’m carving pumpkins It’s almost Halloween All my friends are wondering What they’re gonna be The monster mash is playing You’re moving to the beat And now we’re gonna teach you To do the trick or treat Everybody scream Everybody scream It’s almost Halloween Do the trick or treat Do the trick or treat It’s…
