Lyrics

Too Much Sunshine

spent some lonely nights, desperate days
all my feelings kept hidden away
spent my time hidin’ flip flopin’ decidin’
so careful every step of the way
had my share of doubts, wonderin’ what it’s all about
i spent too much sunshine saving for a rainy day
alone, inside a prison cell made up of my pride
spent time behind bars counting the scars
a bitter twist is sweeter with a double shot of wry
the first time i saw you my heart stood still
i lacked the courage, you lacked the will
i begged and i pleaded, by chance what i needed
gave you everything that i’d locked away
of you i have no doubt, and that’s what it;s all about
too much sunshine saving for a rainy day

Havana Moon

there’s a sweet perfume, a melancholy tune
in the wind sultry notes, blend and harmonize
sweet vermouth and gin, mixed with olive skin
a perfect blend of ice and fire, dances in her eyes
i saw the light in havana, i saw the light
i saw the light, i saw the fire, burn in the night
higher and higher, ooh it had to be you
or the man in the moon
in the dark of the night, havana, takes a new lover
night after night one’s as good as another
same tune, promise the moon
italian leather shoes, russian sable too
bluejeans from a one eyed jack who let his flag unfurl
seven days in may, she keeps the pigs at bay
a lover’s broken promises, a shot heard round the world
i saw th light in havana, i saw the light
i saw the light i saw the fire, burn in the night
higher and higher, here’s to the red,white and blue
there’s a man on the moon

Soul Stir It

there’s a time for redemption and a place to redeem
one saving grace is what we learn in between
all sweet emotion runs hot and cold
we both know she’s got a heart of gold
love is bittersweet, love is bewitching
how we love seeing hellfire burnin’ up the kitchen
soul stir itr up, she lights the fire, soul stir it up and warms your heart
soul stir it up, till you taste desire, soul stir it up and that’s a start
quit cryin’ the blues, it’s a sure fire recepie nothin’ left to lose
nobody knows it when their hearts on the mend
tho love is blind you still might find your courage in the end
when a heart and soul reaches out to a friend
soul starts soaring, heartbeats again

Can’t Win for Losing

been one of those days, everything you try to do goes wrong
next thing you know, chance of a lifetime’s come and gone
always the same, nobody to blame but me
got one of those faces, 40,000 miles of bad road
some find it appealing, revealing, god only knows
allways the same, nobody to blame, but me
it’s the same old song, can’t win for losin’
same old song when you just can’t win
same old song can’t win for losin’,
and you can’t win for losin’ with the same old song
when i’m on a losin’ streak i’ll just dance with the devil cheek to cheek
when lady luck still can’t be found, i’ll dance him around, dance him around
grand central station, title bout altoona, my home town
they paid me to lay down, stay down, i knocked him out the 3rd round
always the same, nobody to blame but me

Must be Love

stop thinkin’ start drinkin’
she’s off duty, a real cutie
another drink and yo’re doin’ alright
we all make the same mistake
at midnight
discussion, say nothin’
pushover, game over
then we regret it when the sun shines bright
we all make the same mistake at midnight
we all say the samething after midnight
it must be love, must be love at first sight
we all say the same thing after midnight
it must be love, because it must be love
a ray of hope is all we need
and just the promise of love
we can’t believe we’re so easily deceived
bye, bye, love
crash landing
still standing
high flying
die trying
you don’t regret it
when you’re doing it right
we all make the same mistake at midnight

Ships

there’s a girl, trapped inside a woman
the woman, hides the little girl
there’s a pearl in a locket, in her pocket
she hides the key
cest la vie, cest damage, say bon uit
say anything you think will keep you safe at sea
ships, passing in the night
flashing you a light, seems so safe and warm
ships, passing in the night, bolts of flashing light
a perfect storm
there’s a boy, trapped inside a man
the man, hates the little boy
there’s a toy broken in his pocket
a little rocket, no wind up key
cest la vie, cest damage, say bon uit
say anything you think will keep you safe at sea
(chorus) ships, passing in the night

in a world, made of man and woman
pearls and rockets, locks and keys
love’s the pickpocket, picks the locks and lockets
emties all the pockets, throws away the keys

throws away the keys

Three Rules

i’ve got 3 rules and a shiny penny
only 3 rules and a shiny penny
some’s got a life, some don’t have any
i never lie, i never cheat, i never steal
i never lie, i never cheat, and i never steal
some say i might, but i know i never ever will
when you add it all up, numbers don’t matter
lines in the sand, soon scatter
all of the wishes, wished on a penny
won’t buy a fool the sense to have any
i’ve got 3 rules but i want you to break them
only 3 rules, i ask you to break them
three little promises and only you can make them
when you cheat, you’ll only cheat the devil
when you steal, you can steal my heart
when you lie, when you lie,
lie next to me

I Know She Knows

every night i see her dancing
thru the keyhole watching every move
she’s pretending not to notice
a little game with certain rules
careful not to let her see me
on off broadway subway trains
i sit in darkness at auditions
i know she knows, i feel her pain
and i know she knows
she don’t even know my name
i know she knows, i know she knows
my love for her is never ending
her love for me it only grows, and i know she knows

she needs a guardian angel to show them all they
made a mistake
i’ll work the long hot summer making sure she gets
her big break
one by one girls disappear and in a year she’ll be
the brightest star…………
i can see her in the mirror
from the bedroom under these new satin sheets
in a moment i’ll surprise her, alone at last tonite
we finally meet, and i know she knows

It Takes a Little Time

sometimes the saint, same as a sinner
if one’s gotta lose, nobody’s a winner
the colors in may, you may not remember
when you turn around, late in december
if you took the time, and time was all you took
you’d turn around and take a second look
it takes a little time

one day, you’re gonna wake up
and see things as they really are
and on that day you’ll want to make up
what seems like ours, a minutes all it took
to turn around and take a second look
it takes a little time

at times we hate, the way that we love
that’s when a push, becomes a shove
you walk the floor, staring at the ceiling
you can’t ignore the feelings you’re feeling
and thats the time you took a second look
just in time, and time was all it took
it takes a little time

Try Try Try

a dozen roses just aren’t enough
to satisfy the hunger in you
no reservations on a saturday nite
you expect a table for two
i pour the wine, look deep in your eyes
you’re looking at the label instead
i’m wondering why

if another woman smiles at me
you ask why and cause a big scene
if i say you look beautiful tonight
you turn around and say something mean
it’s not the words, cause you don’t mean them
it’s this need in you beginning to get to me

i’m wondering why, all i ever do is try
tell me why
i stand so close to heaven
with my soul on fire
arms stretched out see you
climbing higher and higher
when you’r dancing with the devil
how you gonna preach
with hands that long to hold
what your arms aren’t long enough to reach

i bought your freedom
such a long time ago
from a life out on the big city streets
sacrifices? i’m made a few
nothing compared to what you’re going thru
what you want, won’t put out that fire
burning up the future of my hearts desire, and i’m
wondering why

You Just Know

why cry,
when your hearts afraid to fly
and no one knows it
when love plays hide and seek
you can’t hear or see or speak
no way to show it
there is no when or why or how
don’t be in a hurry
there’s no reason to worry
you’ll just know it

day after day
it’s so hard to see
how easy it might have been
in other words,
it’s so easy to be hard
and end it
before it begins

the music lies within
an unplayed violin
until you bow it
we learn by jumping in
let that grass grow green again
then go on out and mow it
there is no when or why or how
don’t be in a hurry,
there’s no reason to worry
you’ll just know it

Ja Ja Opobo

ja ja was a mighty king beloved by his people
till some fat cat diplomat took his power with a steeple
they sail him away to a sunny place make sunday go along
build him a home of molassas and stone
that’s why we singin’ his song
king ja ja opobo, african hobo
green caribbean, barbados, grenadines
canary islands where he die and not opobo
ja ja oh no, ja ja oh no, green caribbean, barbados, grenadines
canary islands where he die and not opobo
he make no crime but the english kind
king ja ja in de way, much money made
in the palm oil trade, enough to make ja ja go way
the king he want to see sunday schooled, so
to england boychild go, to learn of these things
that make hobos of kings, and all things good englishmen know

Nobodys Someone

what ever you think about romance

bridge/ the poets say love is so sublime
whatever you think about this thing called love
they leave the meter runing on
no matter we can split the difference
no matter what you think the difference is

it’s not complicated, loves simple rule
i never say never but i might say when
nobody’s somebodys someone
what’s different, really doesn’t matter
same difference, we know what the
somebodys nobodys fool matter is
nobodys foolin nobody
somebody, nobody rules
somebodys nobodys someone
nobodys nobodys fool
somebodys foolin somebody
nobodys somebody too
