The Disenchantment Chord We sang of the warm hearts now hidden in the days of open war when escape was the only light missing I saw Mona Lisa running on the shore Dancing insane in the wind on an ocean I’ll never know she hides from me teardrops of reflection and in me the anger overflows (Chorus) Bohemians on the loose on a world we can not afford the poet hides his noose deep in the disenchantment chord Now there’s the crypts of division and the spotlight is on all our faults but I remember dancing at the white house long before this age of insults Van Gogh saw his fury and was paid after his time now there’s no life left here to bury and greed, my friends, is a crime (Chorus) Bohemians on the loose on a world we can not afford the poet hides his noose deep in the disenchantment chord She can no longer understand this broken road I’m on flights of fancy find me hovering in the howling dawn I know she has her life and somehow I’ll have mine But I really live when comes the day she gives me her sweet time (Chorus) Bohemians on the loose on a world we can not afford the poet hides his noose deep in the disenchantment chord Keep me in mind don’t move me to your spambox of rejection I’ve sat here 20 years preparing for connection You don’t matter as much to others as you always will to yourself enjoy the ride keep prayers for mothers and don’t hide upon the shelf (Chorus) Bohemians on the loose on a world we can not afford the poet hides his noose deep in the disenchantment chord

It Ain't Worth The Feeling It ain't worth the feeling being high all around out of my mind way off the ground It ain't worth the feeling when I come down I really come down and while the world goes to town I sit here sick and it's a trick I say another day wasted and I can't play Give me a chance to dance dance dance for a little bit of loving tonight So I've got to be high so I can have fun so I can be dumb so I can be young What else is there when you do it all the time make you feel alive make you pretty flyI sit here sick and it's a trick I say another day wasted and I can't play Give me a chance to dance dance dance for a little bit of loving tonight (Bridge) So tonight let's make it right just you and I and nobody else So tonight let's make it right just you and I and nobody else I sit here sick and it's a trick I say another day wasted and I can't play Give me a chance to dance dance dance for a little bit of loving tonight

Please Don't Make My Blue Sky Cry Babe, I'd hate to see you go You'd be happier I know Blue is the feeling in the sky Please don't make my blue sky cry Leave me for another day See if you will stay away Wait for you one more time Please don't make my blue sky cry I'm trying to hang on to a love that I am falling in I want to climb up to the sky but love won't let me in Treat your lover real nice Please take my sad advice Wait for me one more time Please don't make my blue sky cry Babe, I'd hate to see you go You'd be happier I know Blue is the feeling in the sky Please don't make my blue sky cry Blue is the feeling in the sky Please don't make my blue sky cry

Big Old Train Big train can't you hear me calling? Big train can't you hear me calling? I'm coming to you and I'm feeling blue Looking for a woman that needs a worried man Looking for a woman that needs a worried man Catch me when I fall in love again Gotta get whiskey gotta get low Gotta get whiskey gotta get low Hop the southbound train in the ice and snow Big train can't you hear me calling? Big train can't you hear me calling? I'm coming to you and I'm feeling blue I have no money I have no pain I have no money and I have no pain Just to say goodbye to the big old train Big train can't you hear me calling? Big train can't you hear me calling? I'm coming to you and I'm feeling blue

Tundraland Pick up the pickup been running on speed Grizzled and drowsy never get to sleep It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn I give her another couple months or so See if she cares or if she don’t anymore It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn Bridge: Winter was cloudy rain never hides it’s a killer of dust and of all dust abides I can’t be running from the cobwebs inside You only ever get one prime so take me back to tundra land sometime Money is good I’ve got lots of things She only shares her heart when she sings It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn Been closed down don’t know how to say all those things that true lovers say It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn (Bridge) You can’t be here you can’t be home keep on living whatever street you’re on Strangers can become friends then strangers again you’re there to be all alone and somehow your story will be known. Pick up the pickup been running on speed Grizzled and drowsy never get to sleep It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn It’s a fine line to the break of the dawn

I've Got You Ma It ain't so bad I've got you ma When I'm feeling unloved and unheard and unknown We don't have pa but I've got you ma You can remind me what it's all about in this world of deceit and boredom I can't be in doubt We don't have pa but I've got you ma And it's sad to leave you behind The one who I still pine to find I'm so sad to not be by your side These years are flying by Thank you for talking to me When all day I cried inside Trying to set my soul free when there's nowhere to go but hide I'm glad you replied Ma you're by my side It ain't so bad I've got you ma When I'm feeling unloved and unheard and unknown We don't have pa but I've got you ma

The Chances They Change Everyday Like a star only destined to fade You will recall all the debts left unpaid waking by the sun or waking by the rain you see the chances they change everyday the chances they change everyday She may love or she may turn away She may feel or she may be astray Waking by the sun or waking by the rain the chances they change everyday Sometimes love the ocean Sometimes love the hills or the woods or the roads down in town Sometimes love the world or get my fill feeling good laying low being nowhere bound I am here and that I can't change If I did life would turn strange waking by the sun or waking by the rain the chances they change everyday oh the chances they change everyday Sometimes love the ocean Sometimes love the hills or the woods or the roads down in town Sometimes love the world or get my fill feeling good laying low being nowhere bound Like a star only destined to fade You will recall all the debts left unpaid waking by the sun or waking by the rain you see the chances they change everyday the chances they change everyday

Poster Girl For Posture She talks about laying it on the line and it's funny how we've been wasting time. There's too much pain in her eyes and there's nowhere to go but goodbyes and I'm sad knowing there's no way to hide. She can't tell that I'm not a fool for her She can't tell I'm waiting for her word. She can let me go back to the positively lonesome track and I know it's time that I got back. (chorus) She's a poster girl for posture and I'm so sad that I lost her Years and years she's been gone on down the line I still see her family though she won't ever see me and it's sad to mourn a love who's never died. x2 I see her and I wish for the past Had her once and she'll never be back Many years have come and gone and what's the sense in moving on? She's the only one who had my heart on track. (chorus)

Leaving For A Song Or Two I wish I knew what I could say but I run away I run away You've met the only man who'll stay you run away you runaway. (chorus) I'm taking my time now writing this song for you I'm throwing my sunshine in the air and if you're sorry or sad I'm leaving for a song or two yeah yeah yeah Maybe there's a bigger plan to follow me follow me Maybe i'll prove you right again so follow me follow me. (chorus x2)

Awakening 05:53
Awakening - Dan Frechette When eagles soar in your dreams and chase away doubts of the young souls who now do you wrong. Remember me, these yellow eyes do see where you belong. The light will find what we need Everywhere we'll be free and the winners will take us along May the future be filled with the dreams that we see in the sun. Find awakening - Find awakening Suddenly seeing and suddenly being. Awakening. We reach as high as we see but beyond what we see is a grace that is inside our souls The less that you reach the more you can teach without goals. Find awakening - Find awakening Suddenly seeing and suddenly being. Awakening (solo) Time is adrift with emotion it lies in the soul on the ground. Words of bittersweet emotion someday in our wake may be found in an abandoned sundown. She'll cast all her lies into motion and see how her shadow is cast with a final tremendous explosion all will be left in the past she's vanishing fast. Find awakening - Find awakening Suddenly seeing and suddenly being. Awakening. (solo) There's dangers in being elusive when there's so much more we can say. In our efforts to remain conclusive we turn any story our way into some game that will pay. Don't trust the path of the winners. Let your heart follow its sound. Surrounded by corruption in sinners and the gains they have lost are profound in an abandoned sundow

The Meaning Of The Light Old stagnant blood is dangerous old broken dreams fly no more the young stars they shine for eternity old stars have long left the shore do the stories add up for the haunted? do the shadows face off for those lost? do the sounds of the desert desert them who only wish to be told of the cost? She rides on radiant sunbeams that rest on the smiles of their hearts and she leads on the path and fears nothing and looks to no lonesome ramparts she finds abundance everlasting but somehow she refuses to see his heart is not won on abundance his heart only dreams to be free Lost another story staying silent Lost another keeper staying strong Held off another road to glory They were proven all their certainties were wrong Passed a guessing game on the highway One they'd forgotten they were right Following a destiny a reason Only they could know the meaning of the light Only they could know the meaning of the light And he looks out to stories gone silent strings whose vibrations have died and memories whose questions are unanswered unwavering love by his side but yet in the darkness he wonders and dreams of his passions denied and forbidden and desperate he thunders if he was set free he would ride
