Pondering A Thought

Well I was drinking in a bar, some gal left me there to wait
When this guy walked up to me and said I think you know my sister Kate
He proceeds to tell me a story bout last night that I had done
I said I can't remember that but it sounds like I had fun
Then he smiled and clenched his fists I knew there was going to be a fight
Then the girl that left me there grabbed me and saved my from my plight

As we drove off in her car she said what's that all about
Before the words left my lips the door flew open and I fell out
Well the asphalt wasn't friendly and the curb she wasn't kind
When this cop saw me lying there and said son let me ease your mind
Then he put his cuffs upon and threw me in his jail
Well its 4 o'clock the coffee's cold I guess a bribe's not bail, not bail

Well I'm not a millionaire it's really not my fault
That I don't have ton of cash hidden in some secret hidden vault
Inside a stone castle surrounded by a moat
Filled with a thousand Nile crocodiles while all the peasants gloat
At my fleet of Ferrari's parked by my valet's
While my hounds mark the grounds and they keep them all at bay.

Well I'm not a politician standing on some stool
Making empty promises and acting like a fool
Kissing little babies just to get your vote
But when I am elected you'll never here me quote
When I am in office your pocket's I will bleed
While your homeless go hungry and I live beyond my means

Well I'm not the captain yet on the ship of fools I stand
With a thousand tales within these sails I'll spread throughout the land
And when I finally woke I was lying in my bed
With Dylan on the radio and his song still in my head
Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pens
The times are changing but the story never ends
The times are changing but the story never ends.
 


Perfect Life

Well the Sun shines all the time in a perfect life
Palm trees only swayed left and right
Your illusions are reality
You got no worries cuz everything's free

It's a perfect life such a perfect life it's a perfect life

Got no cancer eating at your bones
No matter what you say you're never wrong
No pain or sorrow no argument at all
No tears stained letter tearing down your wall

It's perfect life such a perfect life it's a perfect life

Will the Sun Shine some of the time in a perfect life
Palm trees made of plastic wont sway left and right palm trees 

A state of confusion is your reality
You can sell your soul of thousand times while they stand and watch you bleed

 


Doormat Blues

You pulled out a thorn I had buried in my side
Left me here to bleed, then you hung me out to dry
Hey hey babe, what you have in store
I'm telling you baby, won't be your doormat anymore


You carry yourself like you are some kind of precious stone
Said you were lonely babe but I have never seen you alone
Hey hey babe, what you have in store
I'm telling you baby, won't be your doormat anymore

Met you on a Sunday you were standing in the rain
Said you need a man to love you, now I'm drowning in your pain
Hey hey babe, what you have in store
I'm telling you baby, won't be your doormat anymore

You can wipe your feet upon me 'cause your shoes ain't got no soul
Tell me that you love me, but even that is growing old
Hey hey babe, what you have in store
I'm telling you baby, won't be your doormat anymore



I just wanna be myself

I just wanna be myself; I don't like changes
I just wanna be myself; it's really not that strange
It's not that complicated I like my jeans old and faded
I just wanna be myself

I just wanna be myself; how can you rate it
I just wanna be myself- keep me sedated
I think I have a solution I'm gonna check into an institution

just wanna be myself, don't need your abuses
I just wanna be myself; I'm tired of your excuses
Life's not about apparel I kinda wish your dad had been

I just wanna be myself, get off your pony
I just wanna be myself, stop being such a phony
If you don't have the answer you really must be the cancer

I just wanna be myself; it's my illusion
I just wanna be myself; I've come to this conclusion
So glad we never made it I'm just that friend you've always hated
I just wanna be myself
I just wanna be myself…



Doubts

Well I believe the things you say
The harder I try the longer you stay
You wear down my soul like a pair of old faded jeans
You rip through my life and you shattered my dreams

But it's just my doubts, haunting me
Just my doubts, bleeding me
Oh bleeding me

All of these questions haunting me
Make me so blind I can't see
Will you give me an answer show me a sign
Just keep to yourself while I walk this line

Empty is how you make me feel
All of my life you managed to steal
You darkened my soul in my time of need
But through all this darkness I still see
And it's just my doubts haunting me
Just my doubts, bleeding me
Just my doubts oh haunting me
Just my doubts oh but leaving me
Leave me
 


Retread Blues
 

Walking round day and night you know it really don't seem right
Tired of the way you make me drive Its getting harder to stay alive
Don't care for your no sole shoes You're giving me those retread blues

I keep in time when you play did you happen to hear me say
I keep you moving on the dance floor when the crowd keeps screaming for more
Well I'm tired of your no sole shoes You're giving me them retread blues

You use me, you bruise me, you bury me in the sand
If I jump off a bridge I'd be the first to land
I've walked many miles for a smoke its true
Now you want to turn me purple and blue
Well I'm tired of you no sole shoes you're giving me those retread blues.

 

 



Wake Me Up

Well I had a dream about the night we wed
We were lying in that motel bed
A thousand fingers moving slow
I said wake me up when it's time to go
Wake me up when it's time to go

Now cover me in satin sheets
Lay my guitar at my feet
Why the sky's so flat I don't know
Just wake me up when it's time to go
Wake me up when it's time to

Well pump those fluids through my veins
Always lived life against the grain
Well I'm all dressed up waiting for the show
I said wake me up when it's time

Well I'm riding in the back of a limousine
It's long and black just like a dream
Time stood still the wind won't blow
Wake me up when it's time to go
Wake me up when it's time to go

Bury me 'neath that willow tree
Toss that dirt all over me
Well I'm in so deep I hope they know
To wake me up when it's time to go
Wake me up when it's time to go
Lord wake me up when it's time to go
Wake me up when it's time to go

 


Bar Fly

Got a hole in my soul like an an old wore shoe
Didn’t have this hole till I meat you
I meat you I meat you
Got a hole in my sole lord you know it’s true

Love makes ya blind so you can’t see
Little bar fly buzzing round me
Buzzing round me buzzing round me
Your nothing but a bar fly that’s all you’ll ever be

You called me up last Saturday said take me out on the town
We spent all my cash guess that’s why you’re not around

Well you use to love me but now you don’t
Said you would but now you won’t
Now you won’t now you won’t
You said I d but Baby now you don’t

You called me up last Saturday said take me out on the town
We spent all my cash guess that’s why you’re not around

Repeat last verse
