JEALOUS SEAS

 

............when you're not around      

my heart goes aground

it's just like i've been set adrift........  

caught up on the reef

jealous seas they're so mean        

i can't help but see what i miss........

......if time's what it takes        

i'll try not to break          

i'll try not

to let it undo........... 

i guess there's no ease    

sailing through jealous seas

i find my harbor in loving you.......

..........when you're not around

i'm lost in the sound    

of emptiness screaming at me..........

when you've gone away      

there's just hell to pay

out on those jealous seas.........

.........but when you are near

my horizon-line's clear      

the wind warms the chill in my heart..........

so stay by my side     

we'll set sail with the tide

and never be anchored apart.

HOLLYWOULD

 

All her men loved her without hearts 

left her frozen-faced                                

went playing out their parts     

left her with her big ideas 

without horses buying carts     

left her down on her ground mirrors   

left her holding herself up with straws      

til she took on this artist       

and started telling folks now she draws....

....if she knew the price

she'd forget the cost        

if she knew where she was    

she'd be better off lost.                    

All her men came and then they went.             

a day was saved  a night was spent      

those soft collisions  make no  dent                        

except in their Goodbyes ...............

All Those who know no no's    

were Those who know no tries                 

but Holly would and so would i.

 ..''BEEN MADE A FOOL''....
 
....mustard greens and a travelin'
machine
....don't take an awful lot
....but when you're leaving
paradise you gotta take stock
in all that you got!!
girl you're gonna find out....
it'll really blow you're mind out
....finding out what it's all about
...when you come to know you
and there's
nothing left to show you....
are you cool or
have you been made a fool ?....
...Now you're all grown and
your living alone and
you don't care what you do
....living in Sin
....you're not a has-been
....aren't you wonderin'
what's becoming of you?
girl you're gonna find out
...it'll really blow your mind out
....finding out what it's all about
...when you come to know you
and there's nothing left to show you
...are you cool or
have you been made
a fool ?
