LYRICS

 

She Don’t Run

 

She said she wonders what matters now
Still longs for something that’s over now
And she’s wondering where to go
CCR on the stereo

 

And she don’t have reason to believe
That she won’t be speeding toward relief 

 

Yeah, she don’t run anymore
Now that it’s over now
She don’t run anymore
Now that she’s been and gone
And her head is on the floor

 

It’s like she’s living in Babylon
Going along just to get along
Undercover there’s something wrong
Now it’s time to be moving on

 

And she don’t have reason to believe
That she won’t be speeding toward relief 

 

Yeah, she don’t run anymore
Now that it’s over now
She don’t run anymore
Now that she’s been and gone
And her head is on the floor

 

Can’t afford to buy herself a ride
Gonna keep on pushing across state lines
Move on move up move up roll out
Gonna find it out what it’s all about
Yeah she’s running now

 

Yeah, she don’t run anymore
Now that it’s over now
She don’t run anymore
Now that she’s been and gone
And her head is on the floor

Just Wait

You don’t know what to say
So you say nothing
The daylight bathes your face
Won’t you feel something
If you turn away you won’t see
That door creep open

 

Don’t walk away just yet
Don’t walk away this time

 

Just wait, it’s not easy
Just stay, it’s not over now

 

Have you been gone so long
You’ve been forgotten?
You’re not the only one
Who’s missing something
Did you think you’d fade away
Like you meant nothing

 

Don’t walk away just yet
Don’t walk away this time

 

Just wait, it’s not easy
Just stay, it’s not over now

Bustin Out

Ninety five cents in my pocket again
Driving round town with my new friends.
Couldn’t help but notice
What’s on the radio
Never heard a song and felt so alone
Guess I”m gonna go my third round again
Third time around again and I don’t know this song

 

You want it you need it
To see your name in lights
This silence it's killing
It’s time we busted out

 

Back in the old car
The speaker’s burning
The fire is burning hard again
Torn between two
Times I wonder
How I’ll wander back again 

 

You want it you need it
To see your name in lights
This silence it;s killing
It’s time we busted out

Laurel Wreath

Darkness hangs upon the street lights
Blessed sleep alights on all but you tonight
The shadows sting your eyes
You hear the train go by 
And why?

The memories start to fade
You start to drift away
But your mind wants to stay
And deeper sinks the blade
Your thoughts they start to race
Your walls start to quake
And you simply lie away
And deeper sinks the blade

 

How did it get so late?
Trapped with all you’ve known
In this sleeping world alone
Your head aches and turns and spins
You hear the silence ring
Again

 

The memories start to fade
You start to drift away
But your mind wants to stay
And deeper sinks the blade
Your thoughts they start to race
Your walls start to quake
And you simply lie away
And deeper sinks the blade

 

How did it get so late?
How did it get so late?
How did it get so late?

Take Me Home

 

Take me away come take me home
Wanna go wanna go wanna go wanna go
I’ve had enough, bring me no more
Take me home

I’m here right now until then
Wanna leave can I leave can it quietly end?
I’m at my limit, leave me alone
Take me home

 

It’s not my time, oh why
All this time
If I had my way, I’d be with you

 

It’s not my own to decide
Wanna leave gotta live, find a way to reside
I’m so unsure now, leave alone
Take me home
I’m at my limit, leave me alone
Take me home

 

It’s not my time, oh why
All this time
If I had my way, I’d be with you

 

Take me away come take me home
Wanna go wanna go wanna go wanna go
I’ve had enough, bring me no more
Take me home
I’ve had enough, bring me no more
Take me home

Back Again

The last goodbye is looming now
The sun is going down 
But we can’t go back again

We try to stave it off somehow
And we’re just stalling now
But we can’t go back again

 

Now I’m bracing for goodbye
The moon is on the rise
And the tears are in our eyes
Now that we’ve run out of time
You’ll be fondly on my mind
But we can’t go back again

 

Tomorrow you’ll be moving out
And this is the last round
But we can’t go back again

We talk of nights on the town
And we’re both smiling now
But we can’t go back again

 

Now I’m bracing for goodbye
The moon is on the rise
And the tears are in our eyes
Now that we’ve run out of time
You’ll be fondly on my mind
Cause you won’t be back again

Fold Out Couch

As I lay here quiet on this fold out couch
I wonder if I’ll ever see her again
She’s the one she made me stunned
She brought me down to earth
And then she knocked me right back up again

I had the most wonderful day
Everything is going my way

 

‘Cause I love her 
But i don't even know her
I can see her
Wanna remember just a smile 
And I need her
To spend the rest of my life with
We’re just five minutes old
But I don’t mind

 

Still I lay here quiet on this fold out couch
Im wondering if she’s thinking the same
I’d love to stay another day but my plane is going
And I don’t know if she’s headed my way

I’m so glad I can finally say
Everything is going my way

 

‘Cause I love her 
But i don't even know her
I can see her
Wanna remember just a smile 
And I need her
To spend the rest of my life with
We’re just five minutes old
Well our love is five minutes old
Just enough time for the intoxication to take hold

 

‘Cause I love her 
But i don't even know her
I can see her
Wanna remember just a smile 
And I need her
To spend the rest of my life with
We’re just five minutes old
And I don’t mind

It’s Been Five Minutes

It’s been five minutes I’ve been waiting for you
To arise and in your eyes the light is shining through
These things I’m waiting on much bigger than rest  
Seize the moment for a while you’ll lay here on my chest

Let’s make this last all day
All tangled up, I will say

 

Your eyes consume me
Your eyes surround me
Why don’t we stay?
We could play like yesterday

For a while can we go back to the start
Talking low moving slow we’ll move two beating hearts
Toss your hair again moving so close
Say let’s wait for a while let’s put them all on hold

 

Let’s make this last all day
All tangled up, I will say

 

Your eyes consume me
Your eyes surround me
Why don’t we stay?
We could play like yesterday

Janice

 

Sets her jaw and pretends as she turns all the lights on
One more moment alone before it all starts again
How much longer until the knock from the doorway
Until it comes and she swallows her hatred again

 

And she says
And she says

 

Close your eyes and take a deep breath
Hold on to yourself for one more day
Close your eyes and dream your somewhere
Where the water is warm and the sun’s overhead

 

The door opens he grins and shows the next caller
Shuffles close flicks his eyes but she won’t look away
She locks eyes and makes sure that he knows it
He’s just another means that she tosses away

 

And she says
And she says

 

Close your eyes and take a deep breath
Hold on to yourself for one more day
Close your eyes and dream your somewhere
Where the water is warm and the sun’s overhead

Barricades

Dawn breaks on a day that slips away
You drive off in a haze and all the 
Thoughts fade to gray
It’s unfolding all the same
By the choices that you’ve made
But you blame it all on faith

 

At the slightest touch you turn away
You show your back to those reaching in
You’ve wrapped yourself in barricades
Of course the quiet is deafening

 

You stand alone in this crowded place
With sadness tinged mask of strength
That’s meant to hide, hide away
The subtle coward too afraid to face
The idle hours of all those days that 
You’re content to let drift away

At the slightest touch you turn away
You show your back to those reaching in
You’ve wrapped yourself in barricades
Of course the quiet is deafening
You’ve wrapped yourself in barricades
Of course the quiet is deafening

Good Day Sur

Washed away like sands to the oceans
I heard it said but I don't remember why I came
Here instead
It’s life that picks you up and pulls away again

 

And I wish that I was there and not so far away
I count the hours till I come home
And you wrap me in your curl
And I’ll feel whole again
I’ll come back
Come back
Home again

 

Here today and gone by tomorrow
I say a prayer that the two of us will never part
Ways again
And once I’m gone I’ll never leave your side again

 

And I wish that I was there and not so far away
I count the hours till I come home
And you wrap me in your curl
And I’ll feel whole again
I’ll come back home
Come back home
Come back
I shouldn’t have walked away

The Long Sleep

The sun streams through quiet trees
On heavy lids through the green leaves
The wind sighs and the river purrs
On stiffened limbs the sleeper stirs
On a cobwebbed bed in the tranquil glen
He shrugs off sleep and will rise again

He’s wide awake he’s wide awake
Wide awake he’s wide awake

 

He stumbles through hills at dawn
Towards lost years and friends passed on
The eagle calls in cloudless skies
A king did fall and a father rise
With quickening steps through the path he spies
A New World new through rested eyes

 

He’s wide awake he’s wide awake
Wide awake he’s wide awake

Jennie

 

Hey now I know we just got started 
I know you and I just met
They say he left you broken hearted
I’d say the best is to come yet

Do you feel what I’m feeling tonight
Do you believe in love at first sight
The Berkeley lights they shine so bright

 

You can’t explain away what we do
You kept me up awake until two
If you ever wonder if I want your number
Don’t you know that Jennie I do

 

Hey now this evening’s getting later
I know you know what’s on my mind
I say we take it even later
I say we take this thing outside

 

Do you feel what I’m feeling tonight
Do you believe in love at first sight
The Berkeley lights they shine so bright

You can’t explain away what we do
You kept me up awake until two
If you ever wonder if I want your number
Don’t you know that Jennie I do

 

I do, I do, I do

Don't you know that Jennie I do

This Fire

The weight of your hands
The weight that’s pressing down on me
Your silence in my head
I’m drifting this evening
The waves they hammer down on me
But you feel so far away

 

And if I call out your name
Would you hear and turn your head
Would you just leave me here?

 

This fire, this fire it burns tonight
If I called out now would I reach the shore?

 

Could I believe you?
Believe the things I wished you’d say.
Just the voice inside my head
Had hope for the morning
Hope your dawn would break on me 
Just to feel it fall away

 

And if I call out your name
Would you hear and turn your head
Would you just leave me here?

 

This fire, this fire it burns tonight
If I called out now would I reach the shore?

 

I press on in darkness
Blindly stumble on my way
And breathe you in the air
Will I ever see you
In the broken light of day
Turn to find you there?

Hey Ya Wanna

I hear hand grenades and bullets flying
My heart I can feel it slowly dying
For you can you hear the mountains crying
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

Tonight what’s the point in even trying
My heart loves you and theirs no denying
For you can you hear the mountains crying
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

 

Do ya wanna hey ya wanna 
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna 
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

 

Sun dies moon is up and night is falling
You move, hoping I can call you darling
For you, can you hear the mountain calling
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

 

Hanging around worn beat down
It’s alright
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

 

Sometimes wonder if you even hear me
Right now happy that you’re even near me
Tonight can you hear the mountain singing
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

Hanging around worn beat down
It’s alright

Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

Do ya wanna hey ya wanna 
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna 
Do ya wanna hey ya wanna hey

Allyson

You left me long before you were gone 
You closed your heart
It was nothing that you said to me
I could see it in your eyes and I

I was holding on to something not worth holding
And I don’t understand why you’d want to leave me again

 

What’s the point, Allyson?  
You threw us away
What’s the point, Allyson?
I won’t stand in your way
Through the years we’ve stood together, but now I’ll stand aside
For you Allyson

 

You left me drunk again I was so blind

I could barely see
What was right there in front of me.   
And then the scales fell from my eyes

 

I was holding on to something not worth holding
And I don’t understand why you’d want to leave me again

 

What’s the point, Allyson?  
You threw us away
What’s the point, Allyson?
I won’t stand in your way
Through the years we’ve stood together
Now I’ll stand aside
For you Allyson

Light

 

It’s darkening out and quiet now
The fire is dying down
Echoes of laughter fade
And we sift through
The silent ash beneath our feet
We’re left to wonder how it went so far

 

Is there light?  Is there time?
To set our world to right
It’s late tonight, can we find a way
To make it all alright

Is it too late now for this burned out house
The shattered walls and splinters in our minds
Memories fall to the ground
Should we gather and start again?
Or should we let the embers burn
And let a dead world die?

 

Is there light?  Is there time?
To set our world to right
It’s late tonight, can we find a way
To make it all alright

 

Is there light? 
Is there time?

Nova

 

Spit fire and save the matches, nova
Spit fire and save the matches, nova
Up in the valley
Down on the hill
Drinking to forget her
But you know you never will
Nova, nova, nova

 

Driving hard
Driving fast 
She Runs like the devil
Build for speed but not to last
Nova, nova, nova 

 

Spit fire and save the matches, nova
Spit fire and save the matches, nova
Over to the city
Sleepy Sunday drive
She got them cruel intentions 
And a loaded 45

Nova, nova, nova

 

Driving hard
Driving fast 
She runs like the devil
Build for speed but not to last
Nova, nova, nova

MacGregor’s Revenge

 

The lad reached the river at the height of the flood
He searched for a crossing in vain 
When the black steed appeared, a bit in its mouth
And the water dripped from its mane

 

It beckoned him on with a toss of its heard 
And hid its ravenous eyes
He knew not why he climbed on its back
And it ran to the deepening tide

 

He hollered and he cried 
Stuck fast to the demon’s hide
Till the water was up to his eyes

 

MacGregor was walking and heard the boy call
Too late he arrived on the shore
There was just bits of the lad washed up on the bank
And the water’s deafening roar

 

MacGregor went down to the river each night
He prayed to protect him from harm
He lay in wait, a cross round his neck
And a dagger tucked under his arm

 

MacGregor swore revenge
On the demon horse’s head
That it won’t go a-drowning again

 

One night from behind him he heard a horse neigh
He turned and prepared for his doom
Felt a chill down his spine when he saw the black steed
Trotting out of the gloom

 

He felt it calling him and he reached out
He took a step toward it in dread
He summoned his will and drew out his knife
Cut the bridle clean off of its head

 

It bellowed and it cried
And the color went from its hide
And the fury blazed in its eyes

 

MacGregor swore revenge
On the demon horse’s head
That it won’t go drowning again

 

He snatched up the bridle and turned on his heels
A voice from behind him did cry
“Return it to me or by my soul
In a day I will wither and die”

 

MacGregor went running toward his abode
With hoofbeats behind the whole way
He ducked inside while the cross on the door

Kept the foul demon at bay

 

It hollered and it cried
While MacGregor hid inside
And the next day it withered and died

 

MacGregor swore revenge
On the demon horse’s head
That it won’t go drowning again

Clay Pigeons

 

Cracked dirt calls your name
A parched earth cries for rain
Dust swirls around your face 
The dry lands stretch far away
Your hands shape lifeless clay
And they say “No, not today”

 

Clap your hands
Let them fly
From the mud they rise
Clap your hands
Lead us far away

 

Carve them out, set them free
Exhale rouse them from their sleep
Break them loose from earth’s embrace
Breath out and fill their wings

 

Clap your hands
Let them fly
From the mud they rise
Clap your hands
Lead us far away

When darkness falls and hope snuffed out
Rend the sky and let the rains pour down
Let the waters all stream out
Wash the dirt away

Clap your hands
Lift me up

Back Seat Down
 

It’s hard to get moving when you don’t know where you’re going
Motivation’s lacking when you’re standing still
I don’t want to find out when you’re out there on the highway
Saying what I want to hear right now, saying what I want to hear

 

Turn the back seat down
Turn the back seat down
There’s no one around

 

I don’t remember why you called me in the first place
I don’t remember why I even picked up the phone
Must have known that I would still respect you in the morning
Saying what I want to hear right now, saying what I want to hear

 

Turn the back seat down
Turn the back seat down
There’s no one around

 

Heels up on the dashboard as you motion over to me
I pull over and I put my fear on hold
The way your eyes see through me as they shimmer in the moonlight
Saying what I want to hear right now, saying what I want to hear

 

Turn the back seat down
Turn the back seat down
There’s no one around

My Name is Beemo

Full of love and three foot seven.  
The ladies say that I’m the cutest thing my age.   
Old guitar and a Donald Duck sweater.  
Horned rim glasses and a scarf that’s tailor made

So many times before
I run right through the door

 

My name is Beemo
My name is Beemo
My name is Beemo
Spickelmeyer

 

No I’m pushing five foot eleven
The ladies seem to have up and gone away
My momma said I should have known better
Than to play this old guitar in the hopes of getting paid

So many times before
I run right through the door

 

My name is Beemo
My name is Beemo
My name is Beemo

Time to Say Goodnight

 

Your hands on my shoulder’s
My arms around your waist
You have that private smile
Eyes close as we sway
The crowd swirls around us
They all seem to give us space

Hallelujah, it’s time to say goodnight

The moon peeks through the crowds
It’s been such a long long year
Of high walls and circled wagons
But now we’re finally here

Hallelujah, it’s time to say goodnight
