Metrognome
Time on your hands
You doodle the day
Shuffle your feet
And turn on the news
To hear what they might say
They’ve made a machine
A new fangled device
They’re lighting the fuse
There’s no need to worry
Your world will be alright
Time for a smoke
A pint and a joke
You muddle on through
Silently screaming
What can I do?
Till time trips you out
Larking about
Blows you away
High as a kite
On a windy day

Tell me
Tell me everything
Don’t be afraid to give yourself away
Sometimes, it’s easier
Your fears melt away
And turn it all to moonshine
Words that rhyme
Still in your mind
Still in your mind
Play me anything
Maybe music is the only way
to tell me how you feel
Somehow, you’ll find the way
And all the words to your song
Will carry on
Still in your mind
Still in your mind

Highways of the Sun
We are sailing in a ship that’s got no sails
We are riding on a train right off the rails
We are in an old sedan that’s lost a wheel
But it makes no difference to the way we feel
It’s been a long time – seems like a lifetime
To be where we are
Take a little tumble, fall and maybe stumble
Now we’ve gone so far
All along the highways of the sun
No one knows how far it is we have to go
Because every step we take reveals some more
But we’ll keep right on as far as the eye can see
Over there where land and sky appear to be
Crusing down the highways of the sun
All along the highways of the sun

Unevensong
Sleepless nights, restless days
Memories of her gentle ways
Love locked out looks for a home
A place to find a shelter from the storm
She said you are the air I breathe
The life I love, the dream I weave
Without a word, with just a touch
Now I realize you meant so much
Been awake so long
I feel like I belong
With the rain
Morning light appears
The feelings of the night
Remain
Somewhere inbetween
The waking and the dream
Feel you close to me
