I Am What I Am When I Wake Up

What we are is the resistance
Ain’t nobody gonna keep us down
Holdin’ tight to what we believe in
Never will we be forced underground
Come on over, move on over
We can live together we can stay afloat
Oh my lord why are we fighting
We all get to heaven in the same big boat
If you don’t stand for nothin’ then you’ll fall for anything
And let me tell ya it’s a long way down
I am what I am when I wake up with out warning
Waiting for the changes to turn me around
Come on over, move on over
We can live together we can stay afloat
Oh my lord why are we fighting
We all get to heaven in the same big boat
Don’t ever forget that your not alone
Don’t you ever forget that your not alone
Don’t you ever forget that your not alone
Can’t we stop resisting one another
Why won’t nobody let their guard on down
If we could bear in mind were just sisters and brothers
From here on in we’d all be glory bound
Come on over, move on over
We can live together we can stay afloat
Oh my lord why are we fighting
We all get to heaven in the same big boat
We all get to heaven in the same big boat
We all get to heaven in the same big boat

We Shall Be Together

Well the sun it also rises though I sometimes do forget
I work so hard at holdin’ on that I slip away instead
How I wish I’d been a painter then
I would have pained your portrait twice
One sprawled out on the canvas and the other in my mind
And we shall be together once again I do believe
Sometimes the things you love just up and leave
Sometimes the things you love just up and leave
I stumble through the pages of my heroes set in ink
And I’m thinking tonight of Cool Hand Luke and R.P. McMurphy
How I wish I’d been beside them then
I would’ve went down with a smile and a fight
Though the body can be broken the soul will never die
And we shall be together once again I do believe
Sometimes the things you love just up and leave
Sometimes the things you love just up and leave
Cause when the heights you reach for are a million miles away
Then all you got to work with is today
Well the sun it also rises though I sometimes do forget
I work so hard at holdin’ on that I slip away instead
How I wish I’d been a singer then
I would’ve sung to you something nice
Amazing Grace or Simple Gifts, Beautiful Dreamer or Auld Lang Syne
And we shall be together once again I do believe
Sometimes the things you love just up and leave
Sometimes the things you love just up and leave

Fightin’ To Get By

I try and make the positive out weigh the negative
It starts from the bottom, from the bottom where it starts
As we move up the food chain burn all your sweaters
Go turn down the heat cause we’re in for warmer weather
Shift further inland start a band and sing about any injustice you can
And everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
Yea everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
With any kinda freedom comes responsibility
It starts from the bottom, from the bottom where it starts
As we come towards the dead line we make time to waist time
Go break down the hate, organize, reorganize
Elope try and spread hope, follow no ones calling but your own
And everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
Yea everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
Every single action has some sorta consequence
It starts from the bottom, from the bottom where it starts
As we pass by this milestone silence your cell phones
Go melt down the ashtrays , get ready for a big change
Conserve, question what you heard don’t fall victim to the propaganda
And everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
Yea everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
I try and make positive out weigh the negative
It starts from the bottom, from the bottoms where it starts
As we move up the food chain burn all your sweaters
Go turn down the heat cause were in for warmer weather
Shift further inland start a band and sing about any injustice you can
And everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by
Yea everyone’s fighting to get by, fighting to get by, fighting to get by

I Will Sing To You

Up in the morning and I can see your dreaming
I listen to you breathing and it takes my breath away
Well nobody knows what’s coming on tomorrow
But I will sing to you everyday
Yea I will sing to you louder and stronger
Oh I will sing to you softy and sweet
And if the sun don’t shine well its just the same
We can go dance out in the rain
And I will sing to you everyday
Beneath the glow, beneath the gloom
I’ll raise my voice like angels do
And I will sing to you everyday
Down in the evening and I can see your wilting
I listen to you speaking and it makes me wanna say
That nobody knows what’s coming on tomorrow
But I will sing to you everyday
Yea I will sing to you louder and stronger
Oh I will sing to you softy and sweet
And if the sun don’t shine well its just the same
We can go dance out in the rain
And I will sing to you everyday

Falling Astray

I believe, I believe, and I wanna believe
In the power of hope all the seen and unseen
But my minds been doing me harm and the world is coming on strong
Won’t ya please help me cause I’m falling
Please, please, help me cause I’m falling
Won’t ya please help me cause I’m falling
Falling astray tonight, Falling astray tonight
Like the trees, like the trees that are lining the road
I’m affected by every breeze that blows
Were born we live and we die
But what’s on the other two sides
Won’t ya please help me cause I’m falling
Please, please, help me cause I’m falling
Won’t ya please help me cause I’m falling
Falling astray tonight, Falling astray tonight 
I lay awake, question my faith
And watch the stars burn out with grace
There’s a place, there’s a place that I’m longing to be
Although most of the time I get caught between
The want the need and the must
And I end up just kicking up dust
Won’t ya please help me cause I’m falling
Please, please, help me cause I’m falling
Won’t ya please help me cause I’m falling
Falling astray tonight, Falling astray tonight
I believe, I believe, and I wanna believe
In the power of hope all the seen and unseen
But my minds been doing me harm and the world is coming on strong

One Of These Days

There were awful things happening here
Before we were even twinkles in our parents, parents, parents eyes
And way on back further then that
I can’t imagine we were doomed from the very first breath, well…
All I can sing about is what I see
So if it gets you mad don’t take it out on me
I’m just another soldier underneath this great big sky alone
But one of these days I’m gonna feel at home
One of these days I’m gonna feel at home
There’s been potential in every human being
Since we learned to walk up straight and started thinking logically
Now’s not the time to throw it all away, it’s our dear future that’s at stake
Tell me doesn’t that mean anything, well…
All I can sing about is what I see
So if it gets you mad don’t take it out on me
I’m just another soldier underneath this great big sky alone
But one of these days I’m gonna feel at home
One of these days I’m gonna feel at home
Whatever has been done can be undone again
Keep this in mind as we proceed to forge ahead
There will always be room enough for change that’s the nature of the game
And the rolling stone still gathers no moss
Over time we get, cut down to size but some how we do survive
To embrace the light of better days, well.
All I can sing about is what I see
So if it gets you mad don’t take it out on me
I’m just another soldier underneath this great big sky alone
But one of these days I’m gonna feel at home
One of these days I’m gonna feel at home

Don’t

I was standing on the corner and the wind was blowing
Watching people rushing by, rushing by don’t cha know it
And I felt the rattle, I felt the shake
Like the world was trembling from a big earthquake
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
Well there’s so much to do in way too little time
And no one wants to feel they’re being compromised
When you think your lost stop being afraid
I’ve still yet to meet a soul that couldn’t a been saved
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
If we could live just like we dream we’d all be satisfied
So open up and let it out get going cause now’s the time
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
One more Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall
Another three hundred sixty five days unfold
As we make our way from the cradle to the grave
Never leave for tomorrow what can be done today
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now,
Don’t hurt yourself, don’t, don’t
One life that you’re given don’t waste it now, waste it now
Don’t hurt yourself, hurt your self don’t, don’t
Don’t, don’t, don, don, da, da, da, da, da
Don’t, don’t, don, don, da, da, da, da, da
Don’t, don’t, don, don, da, da, da, da, da, don’t, don’t

Since You Went Away

Remember the times, well so do I
And if love could have kept you alive
Then we’d never had to say goodbye
Now you’ll live on in all of us, yea you’ll live on
But there’s an emptiness I know I’ll never fill
Like the spot at the center of my heart that’s breaking still
Since you went away nothings been the same
But forever come what may I will carry you
Since you went away nothings been the same
But forever come what may I will carry you
I miss you more each passing breath
And it pains me so to have to know
That you ain’t ever coming back
Now you’ll live on in all of us, yea you’ll live on
But there’s an emptiness I know I’ll never fill
Like the spot at the center of my heart that’s breaking still
Since you went away nothings been the same
But forever come what may I will carry you
Since you went away nothings been the same
But forever come what may I will carry you
While life goes on for all of us, its rearranging
Each individual a victim of the changing
Every man must meet his end
But not every man can it be said
Could leave the kind of mark you did
Now you’ll live on in all of us, yea you’ll live on
But there’s an emptiness I know I’ll never fill
Like the spot at the center of my heart that’s breaking still
Since you went away nothings been the same
But forever come what may I will carry you
Since you went away nothings been the same
But forever come what may I will carry you
Remember the times, well so do I

Start Spreadin’ The Wealth

It’s all a work in progress ya see
I’m apart of everyone who’s come in contact with me
And I’m a little good and a little bad
With the stars in my eyes and a monkey on my back
I got a fine poker face with a terrible hand
And a spot in my heart for all the places I been
But never again, will time unfold the same
Way it has been, there’s no starting over so
Take what you have and share it with somebody else
Start spreadin’ the wealth
Well I’m telling you I got them walking blues
I been out there so long I worn out my shoes
And I got Mason blood and a Gypsy soul
With a steady mind and a fire in my bones
I got front row seats to this crummy show
And a spot I can stop at the end of the road
But never again, will time unfold the same
Way it has been, there’s no starting over so
Take what you have and share it with somebody else
Start spreadin’ the wealth
You can back a track as far as you want to find
But there’s no evading when the gears start to grind on rewind
There ain’t no shame in trying
Though I go all day still at night I can’t sleep
I’ve set new world records for most counted sheep
And I’m a hangin’ in though I’m falling down
Cause I don’t feel myself less I’m moving around
I got my eyes on the sky and my feet on the ground
And a beautiful tune that I’m ready to sound
But never again, will time unfold the same
Way it has been, there’s no starting over so
Take what you have and share it with somebody else
Start spreadin’ the wealth

All About Love

I don’t want to be anywhere you aren’t
Please don’t further question me I’ve been being honest
It’s all about love, all about love
It’s all about love, all about love
Rollin’ down the interstate passin’ fields and cities
Lord knows that you can’t escape once your waist deep in it
It’s all about love, all about love
It’s all about love, all about love
Toss your trouble straight away you need never worry
Any way you cut it hey still the same old story
It’s all about love, all about love
It’s all about love, all about love
And peace to you I wish happiness I wish
Best and all the rest I hope it finds you
I don’t want to be anywhere you aren’t
Please don’t further question me I’ve been being honest
It’s all about love, all about love
It’s all about love, all about love

This Years Troubles

I went down to Washington
I saw President Lincoln’s blood
I walked around the monuments
I stood out side the white house fence
I traveled there on my own accord
I needed my faith to be restored
Oh ya gotta move on forward
Don’t get yourself all caught up in the mess
Oh ya gotta move on forward
This years troubles soon too will pass
This years troubles soon too will pass
Everybody wants a piece of the pie
But no one wants to take a smaller slice
Still somewhere down the road I swear
That sooner or later we will get there
I hear the rich and I hear the poor
Singin’ “hard times come again no more”
Oh ya gotta move on forward
Don’t get yourself all caught up in the mess
Oh ya gotta move on forward
This years troubles soon too will pass
This years troubles soon too will pass
When I got back home to New York
I paced my floors over back and forth
Just thinking bout the way things used to be
looking toward the future on bended knee
I stayed up just to greet the sun
Reading “Leaves Of Grass” by Walt Whitman
Oh ya gotta move on forward
Don’t get yourself all caught up in the mess
Oh ya gotta move on forward
This years troubles soon too will pass
This years troubles soon too will pass

Hard Times Of Need

On the dead end street where we used to meet
Will you sit with me in hard times of need
If you’re tired and cold and the wheels won’t roll
Come and sooth your soul in hard times of need
We’re all changing; I know it’s true
Everything’s changing there’s nothing we can do
Times an endless thread that were tangled in
Will you hold me again in hard times of need
If your restless now and your faith run out
I will track you down in hard times of need
We’re all changing; I know it’s true
Everything’s changing there’s nothing we can do
Though the world is cursed it could be much worse
We could mend this hurt in hard times of need
Should the sun burnout and the moon fall down
I will stick around in hard times of need

Still Alright

Aren’t you my friend he said it’s all relative to the way it’s turning
Out my window I can’t catch you if ya falling I will let you
Down a hallway to my doorway open lightly slamming tightly
Round the edges warn brick ledges everyone must work it out sometimes
Still alright beside you on the run
Like the creeping trigger on your gun you shot me down
I know so well wish I didn’t know so well
But you are wilting I am growing sun is shining on all knowing
Still alright beside you on the run still alright beside you on the run
Hello again he said its all tentative on the curve ball we are
Thrown like arrows hatched like sparrows placed like pharaohs
Preserved in their tombs below us never know us
Try and slow us we weren’t built to stop the age’s
Dog-eared pages every one must work it off sometimes
Still alright beside you on the run
Like the creeping trigger on your gun you shot me down
I know so well wish I didn’t know so well
But you are wilting I am growing sun is shining on all knowing
Still alright beside you on the run still alright beside you on the run
Like the creeping trigger on the run still alright beside you on the run

Restoration Lullaby

I passed myself in a mirror I said hey there what is wrong
I muttered back aww nothin’ tucked my worries into song
I’d like to go to Coney shave my head collect my thoughts
Sit on by the water out near Woody and the rocks
Where I can sing myself to sleep, and I can sleep beneath the stars
Wherever you roam’s where you belong
Wherever you roam’s where you belong
I patched my empty places with anything that fit
I did it so to bail myself from fate of sinking ship
I’d like to go to Coney shave my head collect my thoughts
Sit on by the water out near Woody and the rocks
Where I can sing myself to sleep, and I can sleep beneath the stars
Wherever you roam’s where you belong
Wherever you roam’s where you belong
This is my sanity song
My small attempt at brushing all the worries from my eyes
My restoration lullaby
I hear the world a calling and I will not let her down
Ain’t got no destination but there’s one thing I have found
I’d like to go to Coney shave my head collect my thoughts
Sit on by the water out near Woody and the rocks
Where I can sing myself to sleep, and I can sleep beneath the stars
Wherever you roam’s where you belong
Wherever you roam’s where you belong

Keepsake

Well my soul was in the back seat bleedin’ while I went drifting in my car
And I was staring at my left hand tracing that frying pan shaped scar
And I was thinking back to Candice and the two words that she’d wrote
That read “I Love” end of quotes
All this land I pass is vast at last I can’t help feeling free
But pay good mind to each goodbye there ain’t no guarantees
Cause I was thinkin’ bout my Granddad on the day that he died
Sitting in a back yard by myself watchin’ birds cut through the sky
Yea I was deeply connected with the cosmos for while
Stackin’ my memories up into neat little piles
But it ain’t what you gather but what you keep
It ain’t what you’re given but what you carry
No it ain’t what you gather but what you keep
It ain’t what you’re given but what you carry
Well I was thinking bout Baltimore, DC and Richmond
Charleston, Savanna, Cocoa Beach and Melbourne
Tallahassee, Birmingham, Memphis and Little Rock
Okemah, OK City, Dallas and Fort Worth
Austin, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Flagstaff
Williams, The Grand Cannon and Las Vegas
San Diego, Los Angeles and Santa Cruz
San Francisco, Salt Lake City and Kimball
Iowa City, Chicago and Youngstown
All the way back to where I’m singin’ now
Cause it ain’t what you gather but what you keep
It ain’t what you’re given but what you carry
No it ain’t what you gather but what you keep
It ain’t what you’re given but what you carry
I went 10 thousand miles it took me 55 days
I met all kinds of folks covering 26 states
And I was thinking back to Mary and the words that she’d sung
“I’m gonna look at myself though the eyes of someone”
All this land I pass is vast at last I can’t help feeling free
But pay good mind to each goodbye there ain’t no guarantees
Cause I was thinkin’ bout my country and the places I’d been
Staring out my window up into the heavens
Yea I was deeply connected with the cosmos for while
Stackin’ my memories up into neat little piles
Cause it ain’t what you gather but what you keep
It ain’t what you’re given but what you carry
No it ain’t what you gather but what you keep
It ain’t what you’re given but what you carry

Passin’ Time

When the weight of the world is boggin’ you down
And all the tired taxies are hangin’ around
Can I say that I loved you before I skip town, that I loved you
There’s a crack in the moon and my head is on fire
The pigeons are watching from telephone wires
Can I say that I loved you before I get tired, that I loved you
It’s easy to close my eyes it’s easy to close my eyes
It’s easy to close my eyes on passin’ time
I’ve read all the papers and studied the plays
Watched all the people I’ve been here all day
Can I say that I loved you and then slip away, that I loved you
It’s under the cinder that there lies the singe
Stitched in the lining and written in pen
Can I say that I loved you again and again, that I loved you
Never planned to stay forever never did I fake a smile
Here I sit if you should want me, I’ll be here a little while
It’s easy to close my eyes it’s easy to close my eyes
It’s easy to close my eyes on passin’ time
Well now I lay sleepin’ and you I’m without
My pillows are chilly and my blankets are loud
Can I say that I loved you before I brake down
That I loved you, that I loved you, that I loved you, that I loved you

You Are With Me

I pick my fights so carefully
I set my mind accordingly I know it’s hard what isn’t
And I try my best to make it last
But every time it goes so fast aww what doesn’t
I can’t do nothing bout the dark
I’m brave enough to hold a match but not enough to make it spark
I can’t do nothing bout the dark
Sky above me world around me you are with me you are with me
Sky above me world around me you are with me you are with me
I camped beside a cemetery next to the people that were buried
I’m pretty tired who isn’t
Ten paces from a mausoleum I fell asleep I did not dream
I need the rest who doesn’t
I can’t do nothing bout the dark
I’m brave enough to hold a match but not enough to make it spark
I can’t do nothing bout the dark
Sky above me world around me you are with me you are with me
Sky above me world around me you are with me you are with me
A dozen dollars in my suitcase a dozen daisies in the road
A dozen badly written reasons you should know
I speak to no one normally each jagged dagger slices me
I know it’s odd what isn’t
And I thought that I could fix my luck but everything keeps pilin’ up
Aww what doesn’t
I can’t do nothing bout the dark
I’m brave enough to hold a match but not enough to make it spark
I can’t do nothing bout the dark
Sky above me world around me you are with me you are with me
Sky above me world around me you are with me
You are with me you are with me

They Wont Take Me

I was dreamin’ last night at the back of the tent
Bout the get up and go so when I got up I went
Keepin’ count of my steps on the cusp of a new day arisin’
I remembered the war I remembered the peace
Remembered the famine remembered the feast
Clickin’ my heels to the beat in the mouth of a lion
But if I hear them after me I’ll climb right up the highest tree
And carve my thoughts so quietly
They won’t take me they won’t take me no no no
I was testing the wind at the top of a hill
When a bird pierced cloud let a raindrop spill
Slippin’ away while the mound was becomin’ an island
I remembered the drought I remembered the flood
Remembered the sweat I remembered the blood
Leapin’ to life like a spark from the edge of a fire
But if I hear them after me I’ll climb right up the highest tree
And carve my thoughts so quietly
They won’t take me they won’t take me no no no
I’m a one-man band on a makeshift stage
And the great grandson of a tidal wave
Keep your eye on the prize and your nose to the grind don’t stop fightin’
Yea sticks and stones may break our bones
But words can only make us strong
Keep your eye on the prize nose to the grind don’t stop fightin’
Keep your eye on the prize and your nose to the grind don’t stop fightin’

Ya keep me sane ya keep me pure ya keep me always needin’ more
And I wanna go home I wanna go home
I wanna go wanna go home with you
Well I wanna go home I wanna go home

The Train Is Comin’

Way over by the tracks lying on my back
Waiting for a sound hummin’ through the ground
Rollin’ clear and loud there you are
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
Lets jump onto a car straight away and far
Never thinkin’ twice stompin’ on thin ice
Grippin’ to the sides here we are
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
Sweet pretty little thing stowaway with me
Rest your head and sing floatin’ down a string
Whistle blowin’ loud looks to be
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
I’d rather be poor I’d rather not save
I’d rather be free I’d rather not slave
I’d rather keep on then ever be done
I’d rather take off then sit in the sun
The train is comin’ the train is comin’ ride another mile with me
The train is comin’ I hear the whistle blowin’ ride another mile with me

Getting There

Cobwebs and feelings caught the sun off the ceiling
And my head it was burning but my mind kept on turning out these
Words onto paper only realizing later that
I’d rather stay here then face the day
I heard that no man’s an island but I’m getting there
I wanna do what I do I wanna care when I care
I won’t allow myself anything else
Guidelines and letters left the room and I headed
Where my hands became armies every finger was guarding tunes I
Hummed as I drifted out to see if I missed it and
I’d rather be sunk than face the day
I heard that no man’s an island but I’m getting there
I wanna do what I do I wanna care when I care
I won’t allow myself anything else
That moon shot feeling lead me back to my ceiling
And I can’t be the only one who knows where he wants to run to
Get away get on goin’ jump start the radio
I’d rather be lost then face the day
I heard that no man’s an island but I’m getting there
I wanna do what I do I wanna care when I care
I won’t allow myself anything else
No no no no man’s an island but I’m getting there
I wanna do what I do I wanna care when I care
I won’t allow myself anything else

The Things We Can’t Hold

There’s some people I know I’ll carry forever wherever I rove
It’s undeniable how goes the things we can’t hold
And there are places in time that ring forever in my own mind
It’s unbelievable how goes the things we can’t hold
All that I owe, more then I show silver and coal
Piled at the foot of my soul piled at the foot of my soul
Piled at the foot of my soul
I’ve come to measure my life
In pivotal changes not calendar time
It’s undeniable how goes the things we can’t hold
I’ve come to manage my load
And balance the words at the back of my throat
It’s undeniable how goes the things we can’t hold
All that I owe more then I show silver and coal
Piled at the foot of my soul piled at the foot of my soul
Piled at the foot of my soul
But we keep chippin’ away marchin’ formations in separate brigades
It’s unbelievable how goes the things we can’t hold
All that I owe more then I show silver and coal

Miss America

I seen the meanest sickest saddest languages painted on a wall
It sent me steamin’ half unbelievin’ it sent me steamin’ up the wall
It sent me steamin’ up the wall
Hey Miss America you’re beautiful and sad
Tonight I rest my head upon your bloody land
In all this time I think I’ll never understand
Where freedom ends and form begins
I seen a tyrant cursing tyrants on a television screen
It sent me askin’ how could this happen it sent me steamin’ up the wall
It sent me steamin’ up the wall
Hey Miss America you’re beautiful and sad
Tonight I rest my head upon your bloody land
In all this time I think I’ll never understand
Where freedom ends and form begins
I’m bein’ robbed I’m in the red I’m bein’ tied down force fed
And I will bite the hand that leads me if I must
Yes I will bite the hand that leads me if I must
I seen a great land full of promise bein’ parted at the seams
It sent me stewin’ what are we provin’ it sent me steamin’ up a wall
It sent me steamin’ up the wall
Hey Miss America you’re beautiful and sad
Tonight I rest my head upon your bloody land
In all this time I think I’ll never understand
Where freedom ends and form begins
Where freedom ends and form begins

My God

Well all ya can write is all that ya seen
From heavy dust clouds to sand by the sea
And someday I’ll be like those speckles of grain
Ramblin’ again on a glory bound train
Oh God My God Oh God My God
I never met a soul without a burden bear
Ax to grind, cross to carry
We don’t really differ were not worlds away
Just hope machines with a great deal to say
Oh God My God Oh God My God
From OK to CA to NYC
And all the fine places beyond and between
Jesus Christ, Joe Hillstrom right on to me
Locked up and misplaced in Kings County
Oh God My God Oh God My God
They can throw me in prison rattle my cage
Take all my money blacklist my name
Retrace my steps right back to the start
They can keep me in chains but they can’t snuff my heart
Keep me in chains but they can’t snuff my heart
Oh God My God Oh God My God

All I Want

Ride ride get on by my head is clear as the big blue sky
All I want what I desire is to ride with you all of the time
Push push as we go ya gotta make your way to the front of the row
All I want what I desire is to push with you all of the time
Grow grow as we glide let the world unparch your thirsty little mind
All I want what I desire is to grow with you all of the time
Sing sing I don’t mind let the words go bouncing like a bobber on a line
All I want what I desire is to sing with you all of the time
And should you fall away from me I pray the lord for your safety
And should I fall away from you I pray you do the same thing too
Just ride ride get on by my head is clear as the big blue sky
All I want what I desire is to ride with you all of the time
I said all I want what I desire is to ride with you all of the time
