Smile For The Ages

Where were you dancing / When the circle of stones, rose above the plain / Whispering secrets to the heavens / Where were you weeping / When Jesus Christ drew his last breath / Kneeling on the hillside, in the dark

I met you in a dream once, a long time ago / You took my hand and held my eyes / And said you’d meet me down the road / (You left me with a)

Smile For The Ages / Smile Away / Smile For The Ages / You said, “I’ll be back someday”

Where were you hiding / On the last stroke of DaVinci’s brush / The day Mona Lisa came to life /
Was it you in the last car / Of that colorful, Gypsy caravan / Calling to me across time / I met you in a dream once, a long time ago / You took my hand and held my eyes

And said you’d meet me down the road / (You left me with a) / Smile For The Ages…….

Silent Illusion

I might be wrong but, I feel your eyes linger / Sometimes just a moment, then the moment is gone / How can I control this unfaithful conscience / Am I disloyal if I've only loved you in my dreams

I know I will never love you / I'll never taste your tender kisses / But it makes me come alive / Feel the pulse in my veins to know I could / Baby you know I would…

Let it stay a mystery, a secret glance, an accidental touch / My silent illusion, no one can steal away

I know I will never love you / I'll never taste your tender kisses / But it makes me come alive / Feel the pulse in my veins to know I could / Baby you know I would

I might be wrong but I feel your eyes linger / My silent illusion no one can steal away / My silent illusion...keeps me sane

One More Day

This is no time for words / Do you hear the snowflake fall / Down….down /

Love isn’t guaranteed / You share your soul with me / One more day

And in the children’s eyes / I see a light like in mine / Dance for you

So rest your weary head / I’ll be right here by your side / One more day

Hope comes, silently waits by the door / Night falls, you are my calm in the storm /

Just give me one more day / We’ll make the most of the time we have to share / Stay one more day / Help me capture moments, to remember along the way /

And if you leave in the night / Kiss me softly before you go / Don’t say goodbye

Star

All alone in a crowded dressing room / Waiting for the show / Slow motion voices echoing / You gotta get out of this town girl if you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star / Eyeliner and a borrowed lipstick / In a champagne glow / Feather boa wrapped around your instinct / It's time to go

Moonlighting on a one way street / Recognizing faith is all you need

You stand outside yourself, watching every night / Twirl the microphone / Smoke and mirrors do a tango with the spotlight / Swirling vertigo

Moonlighting on a one way street / Recognizing faith is all you need / Slow motion voices echoing / Don't stop me, help me to believe

Rumor has it there's a record label guy in the second row

Time To Go Home

Sometimes I look inside myself / Questions reaching to the edge of sanity / Walk blindly down the hallway / Outstretched fingers searching for the light

Time for the little one’s lullaby / Oh it’s time to find another lost soul / It’s time to let the memory come back to me / Yeah it feels like it’s time to go home

Grey days and broken sidewalks / I feel the scars of earth and sky and shattered minds / The world is cracked and reeling / I keep looking for the pieces to make me whole again

It’s time to put a little road between us / Oh it’s time to find a life o’ my own / It’s time to open up my eyes and learn to breathe / Yeah it feels like it’s time to go home

Can you hear my thoughts / Do you know my number / Can you feel my heart beat / Do you know my name

I feel like another one got away / But I feel like I’m not alone / I’m feelin’ strong and tall and I wanna say / I feel like it’s time to go home

None O’ Your Business

Sex and lies / Realize / No surprise goin' down / It's all a game / That we're still playin' / But we can't remember any of the rules

Will the real Jennifer please stand up / Which one is an actor / Which is a punk /
(Which one is in love)

Why do you ask? / None O' Your Business

You think it's new / This angst in you / But we've seen it all before

Shimmy (All Over The World)

Hey big man is that a gun in your pocket / 'Cause the law won't stop ya NRA's applaudin' ya
Shimmy all over the world / It's your God given right to hide that weapon
It's a shortcut to heaven (make the) News @ Eleven / Shimmy all over the world

If everybody's dancin', we'll be too busy to shoot each other down / Shimmy...

Hey Mr. Bush, the lies are catching up to you / What are we supposed to do we watch you make us all the fools? / Shimmy all over the world / If you step back and take a realistic look at things / A powerful democracy strangled by a gang of thieves / Shimmy all over the world

If everybody's laughing / We'll be too happy to shoot each other down / Shimmy...

What can I say to make you believe me / It's just our king who's bloody and greedy
One world, one thought, one dance, one heart

How do you see me, self proclaimed brave and free / Everybody's waiting for us to turn and shoot ourselves down / Shimmy all over the world...

Get A Life

Ever since I was a young man,  I’ve dreamt of open roads / The wind became my destiny,  luck became my home / I’ve been in and out of everything, anything superimposed / The morning spat reality, music wore my clothes

Everybody said, Oh, Get A Life…

My friend became a doctor, sister, art nouveau / My pastor hid divorce proceedings under everybody’s nose / Jagger married Jeri, my father’s business closed / Cronkite just retired, Warhol’s prices froze

Everybody said, Oh, Get A Life…

Attack Of The Delicious

Don’t be the first to look away / Just hold my gaze ‘til it burns / In that moment you feel the power / Connecting us by raw nerves

You never know, you never know when / You never know when it’s gonna find you

Would you love me if I was lonely and / We were the only ones left / No, don’t tell me just let me wonder / What’s hiding under your breast

You never know, you never know when / You never know when it’s gonna find you / Oh it’s sweeter than wine, softer than fine / Bangin’ around in my mind / You can never go back, once you’ve felt the attack / An attack of the delicious

Teen Dream

Teen dream, shoulda been in magazines / Teen dream, sparkle in her eye / Ice cream, chocolate mint vanilla cream / Teen dream, that led to my demise

I saw you standing, there all alone / I’m understanding. Just where to go /

She was a…
(Chorus)

Let’s go again and come in a rush

(Chorus)

I’d love to have your love / I’d give you all my love / Who is to say what’s wrong / Or right, to tell me what to do

She was a…
(Chorus)

Shadow In The Window

What if Juliet had loved another / What if Jesus Christ had said “not me” / Do we choose these paths on which we wander / Avoiding history

I have no answer, I’m but a shadow in the window / If our will is free, how can destiny / Rearrange our hearts, decide who we are

The moon and the sun and the stars up above / Names and the faces of the people that we love / The world can be altered with a misplaced kiss  / A shot in the dark at a target that we miss / A blood red sky, an island in time / Innocence, lust, greed, envy and pride

What if on a hushed December evening / You and I’d made love until the dawn / Could a night of passion change the future / Or would it all be gone, this life that we know

What if Juliet had loved another / What if Jesus Christ had said, “not me” / We chose our separate paths but still I wonder / How your love would feel / In facets of a dream / You’ll always be my queen
