Please Tell Me Why

02-08-2012
Look at you
Now look at me
The Earth and sky
And the place in between
The setting Sun and the rising Moon
If only we could co-exist like them too.

I close my eyes
And I drift away
To another time
To another place
Please tell me why
With all of Heaven above
We cannot find peace on Earth
We cannot find the Love.

I don't know what it is I'm trying to do
But the only thing that's working is me and you
I don't know what it is I'm trying to say
Please tell me why
Please tell me why.

So when you think
You've finally found your truth
Climb up a ladder
And stand upon your roof
Then gaze upon
The world that's waiting below
Are you feeling small
Feeling insecure.
Please tell me why
With all Creation below
We watch the ripples we create
With the stones we throw
Please tell me why
With all of Heaven above
We cannot find peace on Earth
We cannot find the love.

I don't know what it is I'm trying to do
But the only thing that's working is me and you
I don't know what it is I'm trying to say
Please tell me why
Please tell me why.

Look at you
Now look at me
The Earth and sky
And the space in between
The setting Sun and the rising Moon
If only we could co-exist like them too

No Umbrella For The Rain

02-08-2012


And the man in the van is doing what he can as he watches the world go around
And the lady who said "maybe" is driving me kinda crazy
Saying "catch me if you can".
And of course I'm feeling hoarse trying to find the sauce
Walking to the end of the line
And I feel the breeze pulls me to my knees
But I'm feeling kinda fine.

And these Train Station days seem to take me away to another time and place
When the wind blows cold when I'm feeling kinda old
Getting bored of looking at my face.
And of course I'm feeling hoarse trying to find the sauce
Walking down this empty street
I take off my shoes when I'm feeling the Blues
Cause it really hurts my feet.

Baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go
Baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go.

Well the mice are not nice and the trees have fleas they carry a lot of disease
And the cats and the bats who live in the Flats
Well they sail the seven seas.
And of course I'm feeling hoarse trying to find the sauce
Laying in the midnight Sun
I'll wait until eleven to call my cousin Kevin
Cause he always carries a gun.

Baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go
Baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go, baby here I go.

And the pain is in my brain
It's just driving me insane
There's no umbrella for the rain
There's no umbrella for the rain.
