Border Town



Raining

The sun is up and the top is down
Girl come with me let's skip this town
On winding roads that'll take us home tonight

Come to places we've always known
Where time stands still when we're alone
The wind kicks up on a stormy summer night
We hear the distant thunder

Come on it's raining
No hesitating
Drive on it's raining
The stars will be waiting

When we were younger we lost our place
And missed the signs though we ran the race
Though we pretended our love stood still in time

Have we been given a second start
To find the lost love in our hearts
To drink in life or to die upon the vine
We hear the distant thunder

Come on it's raining
No more debating
Drive on it's raining
The stars will be waiting

Come my Love let's head for home
Let's drive through shadows of these storms
The clouds will break the stars will be our sign
Come my Love with hearts assured
Just let the rain wash clean and pure
And let us leave the fear of doubt behind

Come on it's raining
No more debating
Drive on it's raining
The stars will be waiting

Home

So where do we go for the holidays
Do we call her “Mom” or are we in the way?
And who is it that we hurt this time
I’m tired of being a pawn in their game
I want a way back Home

‘Cause I can’t remember how it was
But I’m trying to find out
Trying to find out
And find my way back Home

Well who is it that we pray this time?
Is it in times of trouble that we seek His guide
And when will we reach and never fall
I’m tired of being a drop in the rain
I want a way back Home

‘Cause I can’t remember how it was
No I can’t remember how it was
Can you tell me – can you tell me how it was
Cause I’m trying to find out
Trying to find out
And find my way back Home

Heart Laid Bare

Never know if I should write you or not
Don't know when I've said too much
I can't tell if it’s ok to call you
Does my voice still have the touch?

You said there were no games
But how do I stop the one inside my head
To want to keep you close to me
Or to give you space instead
As I stand with my heart laid bare

Once I held you free to this day I regret
How the words and right time never met
Now I have you back but I can't help but wonder
What of this is better to forget?

And do I need to ask you for permission
To fall in love this time?
Do I need to hide in hope's submission
Where fate and form collide?
As I stand with my heart laid bare

Those songs you sing to me
Say something in a moment
They're finding me so deep
But am I reading more than I should
And longer than I can ever really see

You said there were no games
But how do I stop the one inside my head
To want to keep you close to me
Or to give you space instead
As I stand with my heart laid bare

As I stand with my heart laid bare

What You Doing Tonight

I’ve got something to tell you
But I don’t know what to say
Girl, the way you make me feel right now
There’s just no other way
I can’t wait
Hurry, hurry, hurry night let’s close out this old day

I just wanna get to hold you close and feel alright
So let’s just quit this talking and move on to the morning
What You Doing Tonight?

Won’t you kiss me with your kisses
Cause honey they are better than wine
Your lips like scarlet ribbons
Wrap a package that is oh so fine
My, oh my, oh my
Seal me with your heart
Cause baby I am yours and you’re mine

Give me one those glances
And then I’ll know my chances are all right
Let’s just quit this talking and move on to the morning
What You Doing Tonight

Come on night, let’s get this going
With this flower from the thorn
Cause when I sleep my heart’s awake
Burning deep until I shake

I’ve got something to tell you
But I don’t know what to say
Girl with way you make me feel right now
I’ve gotta find a way

I just wanna get to hold you close and feel alright
So let’s just quit this talking and move on to the morning
What You Doing Tonight?

The Bridge

Read your letter today
Giving answers to questions
Long since hidden away
A path we had to choose
From a time where we thought there were no rules
In a world that left the innocent bruised
What could we do?

You say you held onto
Memories that cut through in secret
I thought I held them alone
Songs in quiet passion brings us
To a midnight's summer breeze
Bringing comfort that's bittersweet
What could have been?

Cause as the days then years keep falling
The space from every day’s life growing
And though a bridge to you keeps calling
The longer time goes
The greater the toll

And though as hard as we try
Get past our moment in time
This love held deep inside
As though it's always been
This bridge is calling again
Want to cross but we know we can't
And have instead
The comfort of an old friend

Cause as the days then years keep falling
The space from every day’s life growing
And though a bridge to you keeps calling
The longer time goes
The greater the toll

So together we're alone
We live our lives and smile to hide
This longing in our hearts
Close your eyes deep inside Is where I will see you home
And in a dream in the deepest of me
Where your love will always be

You Call My Name

So there you are you’re on your own
A change of life another show
The other wants you to begin
But deep inside it never ends

And you call my name
And you call me

You had me once it was so right
It looked so simple in that light
You close your eyes, I fade away
You learn that this was not the same

And you call my name
And you call me

You tried to hide yourself
From the love you left behind
But as you close your eyes
All you feel is, feel is, feel is … me

So now you’re there you’re not alone
But in your heart you’re on your own
Cause there’s a part he’ll never see
Where I’m hidden in your dreams

And you call my name

Shoes

Where are the empty sets?
Of the people that experience
The peace and the dreams of life gone past
To the stage of a play where there is no guest

To what do I owe this visit to?
Are the folks away for vacation blues?
In the dream there is a change of clothes
But you spend your money and you rub your nose

Happiness is not in a gun
Loneliness is nothing but fun
In the upside down world of TV news
Is what they teach you to fix your shoes

Hold my hand dear let’s show the way
Take a walk down the path dive out the way
Of the railroad cars and the American dream
That died in December on a cold hard beam

Now Bobby was right and Johnny was too
Fought the good fight and left us some clues
To the way things are and how they should be
Closing down at midnight, hanging out till three

Gentlemen hold open the door
Minutemen fight behind a brick wall
In the upside down words of paper news
Is how they teach you to fix your shoes

Now how do I know what I am listening to
Voice is familiar but the words are new
Got the wires crossed and the signal down
Is the manual right or new directions found

So the answers there for the world to see
It’s an inside job spirit conspiracy
Of the lessons lost or a teaching found
Cable sermons fight donation hounds

My Jesus Lord when will you save the day
My Jesus Lord when will you come to stay
In the upside down world of the Gospel truth
Is the walk you walk in some brand new shoes
In the right side down turn of the Gospel news
Rise the man in the stand with his brand new shoes.

Life Gets In The Way

Close your bedroom door
Turn out your lights once more
No more crying for me - no more
Playing the same old halls
Then facing the same bare walls
Is this what I gave up for?

Because I want to love you
I tried to love you
But life gets in the way

Traveling these roads so long
I dream of a life foregone
And leaving you to another’s heart
Will you ever understand
And know the pain inside this man
Could I have loved you even more?

Because I want to love you
I tried to love you
But life gets in the way

If I could find a way I would
Change the paths of all those words I chose
That led you from my life
From my life

Because I wanted to love you
I want to love you
But life gets in the way
Because I want to love you
I tried to love you
But life gets in the way

Never Enough

Each day is brighter
Since you made it back into my heart - I feel ali
Long for together
But life and distance keeping us apart - I still try
To know there'll come one day
When love will make our way
And though I try to cope
This one truth I know

Baby, it's never enough to hold you again
Baby, it's never enough in the moments I spend
Now Lady, it's never enough till eternity ends
And I have you all, until I have you all with me

You say you'd give me
Everything in life and even more - I feel high
But circumstance
It keeps us grounded to the floor - I still find
To know there'll come one day
True love will make our way
And though I try to cope
This one truth I know

Baby, it's never enough to hold you again
Baby, it's never enough in the moments I spend
Now Lady, it's never enough till eternity ends
And I have you all, until I have you all with me

Every day is a brand new high
Each moment I have with you
And though I can't have you by my side now
I do what I gotta do
This hurts so hard way deep inside
But I know just what I chose
Cause I have all of your heart and there I find
My life I have with you

To know there'll come one day
True love will make our way
And though I try to cope
This one truth I know

Baby, it's never enough to hold you again
Baby, it's never enough in the moments I spend
Now Lady, it's never enough till eternity ends
And I have you all, until I have you all with me

Border Town

The day is setting – painted sky
Against the sun kissed desert - lonely sight
Driving on a road that winds at night
Over the hill comes a pool of stars below
Lights from the town at the end of the road

Border town

See your midnight eyes and your amber hair
Innocent romance living simple cares
I can hold you now like I still am there
Smell the breeze – summers from a distant hold
Calls the town at the end of the road

Border town

You can hear the band play from top of the hill
Echo rhythms moving with the beats of cheap beer
At midnight the river calls and we draw near
And live a side few others ever known
Across the town at the end of the road

Border town

There we’d sit around and drink to our complaints
Of this one horse town and planned out our escapes
Though few did leave in time most just stayed
And still dream of being gone
While we that left staying drawn
All headed - to the town at the end of the road

Now the years have gone and the past has changed
Highway grooved by commerce - dusty streets now paved
New politics new dealers but the accent stays the same
Sing a song to a place that once was home
The town at the end of the road

Border town
