"Oranges and lemons say the bells of Saint Clemons" Do you remember? I think I've forgotten, I learned it when I was young in the school yard When paper hearts were cut and passed like secrets And blushing faces couldn't lie When sweetheart candies and sunlit daisies Were given like first kisses in the sun "You owe me three farthings say the bells of Saint Martins" Do you remember? I think I've forgotten, I learned It when I was young in the school yard Now we've grown up beautiful, beautiful and damned Time won't wait for us to be born again And the world grows bigger, bigger than you or I

Where are you, Mister Greenlight One more mile, one more mile Only you, can write this song Make me smile, make me smile Maybe you should say hello It's not wrong, it's not wrong If you must wait for someone Don't be long, don't be long Do you still know the way to my sunshine, my lovely yellow sunshine I know you can help me with all my long days and all the words I can never find I regret waiting so long The light is almost gone Where are you Mister Greenlight One more mile, one more mile Visit me without calling Come to me for awhile Visit me in the morning Make me smile, make me smile Hey, look up on the rooftop Six birds on a wire lucky me feeding the fire trying to go higher Where are you Mister Greenlight Make me smile, make me smile

All The Rage 03:23
Your so fame, your so flame Your so familiar, walk the runway again One in six billion they say Your front page, your main stage A rocket ship racing And everyone's watching you Speeding right out of the blue All the rage You're the word that's got the attention You're the scene that's lit up like a billboard Image is burned in your eyes Attraction is bright in your eyes You're the call at a crowded station You're the heart of a whole generation A shape in a limousine A pose on a magazine All the rage And then there's you And you would give More than most would care or show or do But no one applauds for you All the rage

So it Goes 04:07
I felt that everlasting feeling leave her I turned away at first not believing And then it came on like a ton of heavy weather Bursting my countenance like an air raid She doesn't care about my city of gold She doesn't know my heaven She won't sleep in my buildings of precious stones She doesn't know my heaven She left at night on a plane Going south to find Jesus I left in the morning going west to Vegas Hoping to see the King So it goes, love is wasted on lovers Like Rock and Roll is wasted on youth You know you only miss them when they're gone There's nothing more friendless Than this town without you All these lights are pale without you There's nothing longer than my nights without you Every hour drags on forever

When I Dream 03:47
I didn't hear what you told me I didn't hear what you said I fell asleep while you were talking I fell asleep last night in bed In my dreams you said you love me In my dreams you said you care In my dreams you stood beside me And let them think we were a pair What did you say While I was sleeping What did you say While my eyes were shut Did you tell me that you loved me Or did I dream the whole thing up I can't believe I didn't hear you I can't believe I fell asleep I think of you while I'm dreaming Because of you I want to sleep What did you say While I was sleeping What did you say While my eyes were shut Did you tell me that you loved me Or did I dream the whole thing up That is why I didn't hear you Or know exactly what you said I fell asleep because I love you When I dream, I dream of you

Main Street 03:21
She stepped right out in the middle and crossed in front of me She looked my way as I drove close She was all I could see She was all that I had wanted She's everything to me The lights are changing on main street They are changing for me Yellow, red and green on the most popular street in town Li Li Li Li I love her now Li Li Li Li I love her now She stopped my heart and I knew then That I would have to try Because my life would never be Complete if I drove by She waited for me to slow down I did and she jumped in She laughed with me as I drove away from where we'd been Racing the changing lights and the films between the holidays She was the one who could make me feel that I'm alright... I'm alright

15 Hours 04:05
I broke my back working for my baby I broke my back working for my girl 15 hours swinging a hammer 15 hours working for my girl I dug a hole working for my baby I dug a hole working for my rent 15 hours swinging a hammer 15 hours wondering where it went Hey, I'm not free when do I start to work for me when do I work for me My money isn't big enough to go all the way around I think I owe each and every dog in the community pound When do I work for me I cut my hair working for your money I cut my hair working for your gain 15 hours selling a contract 15 hours working for my chain

Change 05:28
I called to talk Talk is the one thing we do quite well How was your day, mine was insane Hey anyway, what do you say we meet at eight You say, "I'll stop on home to change" Look at you, you are so beautiful That shade of blue has never looked so fine before And anymore, you are the rock that keeps it's form When everything else has changed Once, I just knew for sure Exactly what time was for But I'm not there more and more Now back and forth I've spun Between thinking it's all been done And hoping it's just begun We made it through Making it through is one thing we do quite well I ask you Love If you could change one little thing What would it be? You say "I know, I wouldn't change a thing" Yes I agree, I do, why would we change a thing

Come On Joe 02:00
It's all over, it's all done It's all over, it's all done Our work is over, it's all done Come on, Joe, it's time to run Last one to leave sweeps up the floor Last one to leave locks up the door I heard the horn, we can go I heard the horn, we can go We've got our money, we can go The girls are waiting, come on, Joe Put down your broom We can't be late I can't believe It's nearly eight Last one to leave sweeps up the floor Last one to leave locks up the door I can drive, If you can steer We need to get right out of here Tell the boss to send for Joe Hurry, hurry, it's time to go

It's said that love belongs to hearts that have been broken And mine's split in two Our love became a routine Cold as repetition that wears on you I think that sometime somewhere We just forgot to say hello To be polite, to kiss goodnight Love can hope but sometimes love forgets We were banks and babies We were nervous maybes We were young We were drives and movies We were chores and duties We were young It's the little things I miss most Would you agree? We never think of them till they're lost and gone Love endures but sometimes love forgets We were kisses in the sun We were wonderful and beautiful We'd be different from everyone We were promises that would only be broken Only forgotten in the end

Untitled 04:25
Sorry for the time I took from you I don't mean to hurt you I can't get the hardness from my heart Heaven knows I wish I could There's and underlying corruption Going on and coming down Weighing down on my heart Like a devil on a rooftop Dancing from dusk till sunup Always clicking his heels Like a cramp in a swim hole Like a draft through a window Like a twitch on a calm face Something's not right There's a piece of mirror in my eye The world is all distorted now I loved you as a child But all I've felt has been twisted and forgotten now I've got to leave and go away for now I can't remember why I've stayed You don't know anything but love And I hate that I love you less
12.
Tonight, let's forget what we've become And be who we were... Lovers that shared commonness That brought and bound us together It's sad how our time has passed by And slipped away I'm not ready to lose you I'll never be ready to lose you For now we'll get by on what we remember Tonight you won't be tired and tried We'll take up tomorrow and all that's uncertain And throw them behind us I won't say goodbye Better for us to forget the hour To hope for forever, to give up the world And lately a veil surrounds us Where time is everything and nothing With it's great distance and divide We'll be apart I'm not ready to lose you I'll never be ready to lose you
13.
End 02:01
Wait for me by the door Come in and be warm for a while Sleep there safe from the world But I can't be here all the time And now you lay outside alone Quiet and still forever There on the ground that you called home Is all that I can remember

about

I always thought writing a love song was the hardest kind of tune to write because it's been done so many times and so many ways before. This is my first attempt…

I want to take some space on this page to thank Paul, Jordan, Molly, Greg, Chris and Dwayne for being such a major part of this music and special thanks to Ray Weston for lending me the Ripper bass (which i will never give back).
