Built to Cry 

My friends keep telling me
i should be over you.
They say come back to earth man
and try something new.
I told myself
don’t call you no more.
or pretend you knockin
on my door.

Time moves so fast,
don’t close your eyes.
We were built to last
We were built to cry.

Your picture on my wall
is turned upside down.
Kinda like my life baby
when you left town.

Yesterday, i gave up
my latest occupation.
To take up a lifetime
of parties and vacations

Time moves so fast,
don’t close your eyes.
We were built to last
We were built to cry.

Run Along the Highway 

Run a long time on the highway
Run a long time on the night
Looks like things goin my way

This time get it right
Get it right.

Black dog in the back yard
fireworks in my hand.
Good looking mamma dancing
firing up the band.

Smoke and wheels are burnin
leather to my leg.
Long arm window dancing,
diamonds in my head.

Run a long time on the highway.
Run a long on the night.
Looks like things goin my way
This time get it right.

Get it right.
We get it right.

Dark Seas

Hold the crystal to the light
ride the eagles wings.
Guided by the song of the morning.
by night as the hammer swings.

I am a hunter of your dark seas.
Our ship needs what the ocean bleeds.
we do not fear the world below us.
i sail on.
u sail on.
we sail on.

Frozen surge of fire and ice,
dream a thousand dreams.
Ripped and robbed in the black of night
in the beds of kings and queens

i am a hunter of your dark seas
our ship needs what the ocean bleeds
we do not fear the world below us
…i sail on
u sail on.
we sail on.

oceans of coal,
galloping foal,
search for new land.

i am a hunter of the dark seas.
our ship needs what the ocean bleeds .
we do not fear the world below us.
…i sail on
u sail on.
we sail on.

i got a good looking mamma with me
I got a good looking mamma back home

Well maybe hard time and trouble baby

Im long way from the Delta
and a long way from New Orleans.

Well she miss that cornbread baby.
Miss them collard greens.

How we supposed to be there
When were the last car in the line.

Daylights gone now
not a minute too soon.
Stay cool my friend

Turn off turn on the flashers

Daylights gone now
not a minute too soon.
Stay cool my friend

Have a lil break
with your chocolate cake
Hangin out by the pool.

Goodbye Landscapes

Late night heartbeat
all these stars
goodbye landscapes
break my heart

whats after the lonely
who’s writing the story of love
i will find in my life
the answer

last weeks tirade
made its mark
home run tuesday.
out of the park

whats after the lonely
who’s writing the story of love
i will find in my life
the answer.

End of your holiday
bring on the dark
Cant watch u fade away
you i the spark.

whats after the lonely
who’s writing the story of love
i will find in my life
the answer.

Say goodbye in the driveway
Say goodbye in the dark
Ridin home on the last wave
but never goodbye with your heart.

whats after the lonely
who’s writing the story of love
i will find in my life
the answer

Jaguar

Theres miles of tiles
and palm trees sway
We came from the city
but just might stay

Jaguar
a house by the ocean
Jaguar
lipstick and lotion
jaguar
make me feel free

Relax by the pool
and drive in the mountains
Dance in the streets
swim in the fountains

Jaguar
a house by the ocean
jaguar
lipstick and lotion
Jaguar
make me feel free

Boats out at the sea
Plates in the cafe
Sparkiling glasses
Lost in time
Lemons and limes
my heart dances.

Jaguar
a house by the ocean
Jaguar
lipstick and lotion
Jaguar
make me feel free.

Ridin with the Snake

she wants to rock it dirty
riding with the snake

don’t want no fried chicken
she don’t want no hamburger steak
she wants to rock it dirty
riding with the snake
