As I Grow

[Eve]
Turn your negitive into a positive
This one is for the kids
Hmm

[Chorus: Eve]
People hear me when I talk yea (As I grow)
People try to break me but I (Still stand strong)
Cuz this life that I live it's (All I know)
And can nobody can take me off this (Path I travel on)
People hear me when I talk to yea

Yo
I'm in a position to help a lot of people
When I love it

This One's For The Girls

This is for all you girls about thirteen
High school can be so rough, can be so mean
Hold onto, onto your innocense
Stand your ground when everybody's giving in
This one's for the girls
This is for all you girls about twenty-five
In little apartments just trying to get by
Living on, on dreams and Spaghetti-Os
Wondering where your life is gonna go
[Chorus:]
This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls
This is for all you girls about forty-two
Tossing pennies into the fountain of youth
Every laugh, laugh line on your face
Made you who you are today
[Chorus]
Yeah we're all the same inside
From one to ninety-nine
[Chorus]

One For My Baby (& One More For The Road)

Its quarter to three, theres no one in the place
Except you and me
So set em up joe, I got a little story
I think you should know
Were drinking my friend, to the end
Of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
I know the routine, put another nickel
In the machine
I feel kind of bad, cant you make the music
Easy and sad
I could tell you a lot, but its not
In a gentlemans code
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
Youd never know it, but buddy Im a kind of poet
And Ive got a lot of things Id like to say
And if Im gloomy, please listen to me
Till its talked away
Well thats how it goes, and joe I know your gettin
Anxious to close
Thanks for the cheer
I hope you didnt mind
My bending your ear
But this torch that I found, its gotta be drowned
Or its gonna explode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

One More For The Rodeo

One more for the rodeo, an old-school 60s team
A great new wide awakening spews out at the seams
Laid out cold on the table, a sheet pulled over his head
I turned around to the janitor, asked him just how long youd been dead
And its one more for the rodeo, one more for the show
One more pretender who just had to go
All the gods and gurus blowing from the east
So caught up in your principles it eats your mind like a disease
I wish I was invisible, hidden from the crowd
And this cold wind blows down the sidewalk and leaves me wondering how
And its one more for the rodeo, one more for the show
One more pretender who just had to go
---instrumental---
One more for the rodeo, one more for the show, one more pretender, who just had to go

Just one day for the love

Just one day to live for love,

i'm asking you my God.

Asking you for just one day at another world,

For honoring the love.

Where will be another sky.

And the souls will have the freedom to fly high.

With the birds at the blue sky and never die.

Where the love will be permitted to all us

Without bounds.

Where no differences will be able to apart

The lovers hearts and no soul will get hurt.

Where the man will beloved

For who he is

And not for what he has or had.

Where

One world,

One word

One love

Will be able to hug

All the humanity's hearts.

Where no rights will be stolen

And no child will cry.

Just one day for the sake of love,
i'm asking for my God.

May one day of cherishing the love

Could be able to ease

All those revanges and hates

From the humanity's heart

Song VI: Cherish Life that Abideth

Love is enough: cherish life that abideth,
Lest ye die ere ye know him, and curse and misname him;
For who knows in what ruin of all hope he hideth,
On what wings of the terror of darkness he rideth?
And what is the joy of man's life that ye blame him
For his bliss grown a sword, and his rest grown a fire?

Ye who tremble for death, or the death of desire,
Pass about the cold winter-tide garden and ponder
On the rose in his glory amidst of June's fire,
On the languor of noontide that gathered the thunder,
On the morn and its freshness, the eve and its wonder:
Ye may make it no more--shall Spring come to awaken?

Live on, for Love liveth, and earth shall be shaken
By the wind of his wings on the triumphing morning,
When the dead, and their deeds that die not shall awaken,
And the world's tale shall sound in your trumpet of warning,
And the sun smite the banner called Scorn of the Scorning,
And dead pain ye shall trample, dead fruitless desire,
As ye wend to pluck out the new world from the fire.

I will again stand strong

I WILL AGAIN STAND STRONG


I’ve been knocked down
Injured my pride
It knocked my mind way out of wack
I knew it was wrong
I still took that ride
Trying to get everything back-
I will again stand strong

It will take some time to get back on my feet
The strength within me will prevail
I will never accept defeat
I will be victorious
I will not fail-
I will again stand strong

Feeling flat on my back
Everything to lose
Trying to regain my pride
My mind is frazzled
My ego bruised
Taking life in shorter strides-
I will again stand strong

It's All Right (The Way That You Live) (demo)

I don't care about your ways
of love and life and walkin'
I don't care about your days
of carin' and not talkin'
But it's your right
the way that you live
It's all right
the way that you live
You won't call
it doesn't matter if your sun shines in the evening
Don't wait
the moon will wait to come out in the night and talkin'
I don't care about your present pay
and your night life you keep burning
I don't care about what your old man says
all the ways you have of learnin'
But it's your right
the way that you live
It's all right
the way that you live
You don't write
it doesn't matter what they all say, gonna mess around
It's ok
it doesn't matter if your off or fine gonna learn
I don't care about your ways
of love and life and walkin'
I don't care about your days
of carin' and not talkin'
But it's your right
the way that you live
It's all right
the way that you live
It's all right
the way that you live
It's all right
the way that you live
It's all right
the way that you live
It's all right

Going For The One

(anderson)
Get the idea cross around the track
Underneath the flank of thoroughbred racing chasers.
Getting the feel as a river flows.
Would youlike to go n shoot the mountain masses?
And here you stand no taller than the grass sees.
And should you really chase so hard.
The truth of sport plays rings around you.
Going for the one
Going for the one
Get in the way as the tons of water
Racing with you crashing thru the rudder.
Once at the start you can gamble
That you really surely really mean to finish.
After seeing all your sense of fear diminish.
As you treat danger a pure collection.
As you throw away misconceptions.
Going for the one.
Going for the one.
Going for a
Listen in time
Taken so high
To touch to move
Listen to life
Touching touch time
Travel twilight
Taken so high.
Roundabout, sounding out, love you so
Love you so
Love you so
Now the verses Ive sang
Dont add much weight to the story in my head
So Im thinking I should go and write a punch line.
But theyre so hard to find
In my cosmic mind
So I think Ill take a look out of the window.
When I think about you
I dont feel low.
Nshould I really chase so hard.
The truth of sport plays rings around you.
Going for the one.
Going for the one.
Going for to
Listen in time
Taken so high
To touch to move
Listen to life
Touching touch time
Travel twilight
Taken so high
Taking your time
Turn on to love
Turnstile to one
Tender timing
Rocking rolling
Listen in time
Taken so high
To touch to move
Listen to life
Touching touchtime
Travel twilight
Taken so high
Taking your time
Turn on to love
Turnstile to one
Tender timing
Rocking rolling
Turn on to love
Turnstile to one
Tender timing
Rocking rolling
Moments decide.
Moments delight.
Moments in flight.
Talk about sending love.

Yahu

To be served like a monkey and to be saved like money,
With the woes of life around us always;
But he split the wood for the burnt offering of love and,
She took a veil to cover her face.

Yahu, this sacrifice should be eaten inside one house;
For the worst hailstorm is about to come.
To be seerved like a monkey and to be saved like money,
But life is like living 430 years in the land of Egypt;
Where one learns through the slavery days of the muse that there was.

It was in the 'House of God (Beth-El) ' which was,
Very different from the 'House of Yahweh (Bayit Yahweh):
But there we have to learn from the difference to gain wisdom.
'Bayit Yahweh'! For there we got the truth of life to carry on;
And of the sacrifice which was to be eaten inside one house.

Dithyramb

Believe me, together
The bright gods come ever,
Still as of old;
Scarce see I Bacchus, the giver of joy,
Than comes up fair Eros, the laugh-loving boy,
And Phoebus, the stately, behold!

They come near and nearer,
The heavenly ones all--
The gods with their presence
Fill earth as their hall!

Say, how shall I welcome,
Human and earthborn,
Sons of the sky?
Pour out to me--pour the full life that ye live!
What to ye, O ye gods! can the mortal one give?

The joys can dwell only
In Jupiter's palace--
Brimmed bright with your nectar,
Oh, reach me the chalice!

"Hebe, the chalice
Fill full to the brim!
Steep his eyes--steep his eyes in the bath of the dew,
Let him dream, while the Styx is concealed from his view,
That the life of the gods is for him!"

It murmurs, it sparkles,
The fount of delight;
The bosom grows tranquil--
The eye becomes bright.

A Cavalier Song

Kentish Sir Byng stood for his King,
Bidding the crop-headed Parliament swing:
And, pressing a troop unable to stoop
And see the rogues flourish and honest folk droop,
Marched them along, fifty score strong,
Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song.
God for King Charles! Pym and such carles
To the Devil that prompts 'em their treasonous parles!
Cavaliers, up! Lips from the cup,
Hands from the pasty, nor bite take nor sup
Till you're-

(Chorus)
Marching along, fifty-score strong,
Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song.

Hampden to hell, and his obsequies' knell.
Serve Hazelrig, Fiennes, and young Harry as well!
England, good cheer! Rupert is near!
Kentish and loyalists, keep we not here

(Chorus)
Marching along, fifty-score strong,
Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song?

Then, God for King Charles! Pym and his snarls
To the Devil that pricks on such pestilent carles!
Hold by the right, you double your might;
So, onward to Nottingham, fresh for the fight,

(Chorus)
March we along, fifty-score strong,
Great-hearted gentlemen, singing this song!

No More

leave me alone
it's over it's done
my love for you will never die
but oh, how i can lie
just leave me alone w/ my pain
standing in the pouring rain
no more can i be there for you
there is nothing else i can do
how i wish that i could be there
in your arms, fingers tangled in your hair
oh how wish that i could be
good enough for you but don't you see?
no more do i have to give
no more do i have to live
but i will still keep on living for you
'cuz i know that's what you would want me to do
but you will always be gone
so leave me, it's over it's done!
i'm standing at your grave
my heart, an empty cave
please, i beg of you
do what you have to do
but please do move on
for you to stay here it's wrong
so leave me here alone
i'll love you 'till it's all over and done
so please wait for me there
and i'll be in your arms, fingers tangled in your hair
so i'm standing here in the pouring rain
trying to stay sane
and no more will i cry
even though i want to die
but i still know this
when i do die, naturally, the first thing i'll do is kiss your lips
and know that no more
will i be missing my core

That's What Makes America Cool, You Know?

With apology to Bruce Willis...

we don't wrap our women up in burkas,
we like bikinis on the beach,
we invented hula hoops and frisbees,
we tolerate what anyone may preach,
we got chicken in every pot,
cars in every parking lot,
that's what makes America cool, you know?

we can only smoke cigarettes on the street,
we strap our babies down in a car seat,
if you come here you will learn,
we're cautious at every turn,
every chick and dude knows all about health food,
we play rock and roll with attitude,
that's what makes America cool, you know?

for the most part we win the wars we fight,
for the most part we know wrong from right,
we got sports and movies on our t.v.
twenty- four seven, sea to shining sea,
the casinos here are ace,
we handle our toxic waste,
that's what makes America cool, you know?

Lots of people sneak into our country,
Very few people try to sneak away,
pretty soon, we'll be back on the moon,
if you say we can't, you'll soon change your tune,
there ain't nothing we can't do,
Man, we're the red, white, and blue,
that's what makes America, cool, you know?
That's what makes America cool.

One Time For Old Times

You're lookin' fine, it's been a long time
I still remember everything that used to be
Like the love, it's always so easy loving you for me
It's been a while, though time has got a smile
I see it now, love feels new to me
Tell me have you still got a place in your heart
Is there a chance you'll be showing me
Chorus:
One time for old times, (darlin') one kiss for the love we missed
One time for old times, and for all the love that we've lost along the
way
You're still the same, nothing's really changed
Still got the look that always got through to me
I see you now, love feels new to me again, once again
Tell me now, has anyone taken my place
Is there any chance you'll come back to me
One time for old times, honey, one kiss for the love we missed
One time for old times, and for all the love that we've lost along the
way
One time for old times, darlin', one kiss for the love we missed
One time for old times, and for all the love that we've lost along the
way
(Solo)
You're lookin' fine, it's been a long time
I still remember everything that used to be
Tell me have you still got a place in your heart
Is there any chance you'll be showin' me
One time for old times, darlin', one kiss for the love we missed
One time for old times, and for all the love that we've lost along the
way
One time for old times, honey, one kiss for the love we missed
One time for old times, and for all the love that we've lost along the
way
One for old times

The ladies Know! ! this one is for the guys

The ladies know

She vacillates, procrastinates
she can’t decide what she should wear.
To the annoyance of her mate
her indecision hard to bear.

Men simply don’t appreciate
the efforts that a lady makes
Her clothing must co ordinate.
She can’t afford to make mistakes

Subjected to close scrutiny
of other ladies eagle eyes
She must be turned our perfectly
Although her loving husband tries

to tell her she looks beautiful.
She knows that he is prejudiced
as well as being dutiful
and so she dithers paralysed

Or so it seems but its not true
The lady acts out her charade
she knows exactly what to do.
Part of the little scheme she’s made.

His patience coming to an end.
Her mate insists that she must dress.
They have no choice they must attend
He is quite sure she will impress.

She’s wise enough to recognise
that he will brook no argument.
So very quickly she complies
. Her partner registers his content.

When they arrive a little late
as she intended they would be.
She makes an entry with her mate
and all the while smiles radiantly.

She has upstaged her enemies
Her crafty plan a great success
Her one intent was to displease
the other ladies more nor less.

Her faithful husband unaware.
He is completely innocent
of grudges which the ladies bear.
Can’t understand their discontent.

But then of course he’s just a man.
If looks could kill she would be dead
She’s hated by every woman.
Though not one crossword will be said.

The feud continues constantly
As every lady tries her best
to show her rivals only she
Stands out above the rest.

Some times they win, sometimes they lose.
Tonight the winners crown is hers
The men folk simply chat and booze
and disregard the hate filled stares.

The ladies know and they intend
to take her down a peg or two
But for the moment they pretend.
Because thats what real ladies do.

King Charles, and who'll do him right now?
King Charles, and who's ripe for fight now?
Give a rouse: here's, in hell's despite now,

Who gave me the goods that went since?
Who raised me the house that sank once?
Who helped me to gold I spent since?
Who found me in wine you drank once?

King Charles, and who's ripe for fight now?
Give a rouse: here's, in hell's despite now,

Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!
Rescue my castle before the hot day
Brightens to blue from its silvery grey,

Ride past the suburbs, asleep as you'd say;
Many's the friend there, will listen and pray
``God's luck to gallants that strike up the lay---

CHORUS.---``Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!''

III.

Forty miles off, like a roebuck at bay,
Flouts Castle Brancepeth the Roundheads' array:
Who laughs, ``Good fellows ere this, by my fay,

CHORUS.---``Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!''

IV.

Who? My wife Gertrude; that, honest and gay,
Laughs when you talk of surrendering, ``Nay!
``I've better counsellors; what counsel they?

CHORUS.---``Boot, saddle, to horse, and away!''

Dont Be My Enemy

(jack hues / darren costin / nick feldman)
You had your dreams
You required a scheme of things
That evolved and resolved through the years
And I had my part
(when you wrote me out)
But you broke my heart
(when you wrote me out)
Now you spend your whole time trying
To burn me to the ground
Chorus:
Dont be my enemy
Cant you see
What youre doing to me
Dont be my enemy
Cant you see
What an effect this is having on me?
I had a thought
It was just a simple thought
Of a friend, very close, very clear
But then it stopped looking so straight
(when you wrote me out)
You found the hate
(when you wrote me out)
Now you spend your whole time trying to make
Me look like your main fool
Repeat chorus
