I LOVE EVERYTHING
by D. Wood

I like to hear a song, I've heard enough to sing along
I'll stay up half the night, or I might stay up 'til the dawn
My hands are tied in many ways - I'm afraid to say
Tonight will only bring another day

But I love everything I've got right now
Yes I love everything I've got right now

Some people look at me, and wonder what I think about
Maybe they'll wait to see, but I'm not one to let it out
My hands are tied in many ways - I'm afraid to say
The situation's what you take away

So I love everything I've got right now
Yes I love everything I've got right now

Sometimes I'll tap a foot, or jump right up and dance around
Might be the time of night, or how much I've been putting down
My hands are tied in many ways - I'm afraid to say
I hope my welcome is not overstayed

'Cause I love everything I've got right now
Yes I love everything I've got right now
'Cause I love everything I've got right now
Yes I love everything I've got right now





YOU COULD GO
by D. Wood

Iíll wait around
You go find yourself
Iíll be mending fences, youíll be stepping out
Iíll be keeping up with what we used to be about
You could go - I could wait around
You could go - I could wait around

Iíll hammer nails
Work out in the sun
You can take the long road and see how far it runs
You turn up your radio and listen to the sounds
You could go - I could wait around
You could go - I could wait around

Have youíve seen the man in me or at least my intent
You must have missed the flowers that I sent
Everything that grows has got to come up from the ground
You could go - I could wait around
You could go - I could wait around

Well Iíve got a plan
First Iíll wash my hands
Lock up all my fences and look out on my land
Point my truck to the falling sun and put the hammer down
You could go and I could wait around
You could go and I could wait around

Have youíve seen the man in me or at least my intent
You must have missed the flowers that I sent
Everything that grows has got to come up from the ground
You could go - I could wait around
You could go - I could wait around
You could go - I could wait around



LYIN' AND HONESTY
by D. Wood


She said that she would take me home
Her car smelled like menís cologne and
She wanted me - yes she wanted me to drive

The darkness of the interstate was
Making my eyes dilate
But still it seemed that I could see all right

Lying and honesty Ė you know Iím sometimes divided
I may not although I might
Agree to disagree Ė you know Iím not one to fight it
At least I wonít be tonight

At a loss for what to say
So I found another way 
I grabbed her and I pulled her to my side

I think it was the Rolling Stones
On her Delco 8-track radio
But the station it would fade the more Iíd drive

Lying and honesty Ė you know Iím sometimes divided
I may not although I might
Agree to disagree Ė you know Iím not one to fight it
At least I wonít be tonight

I pulled the car off to the side
By a field on Route 29
And through the dirt Iíd drag a heavy load

In the cool October night I made
Her and God again unite
And then I walked back to her car alone

Lying and honesty Ė you know Iím sometimes divided
I may not although I might
Agree to disagree Ė you know Iím not one to fight it
At least I wonít be tonight

 

 

I LOVE HER (HER MIND'S ON OTHER THINGS)
by Allen Thompson

Well she knows she's going somewhere 
because she's got big dreams
But she's afraid of wasting time doing her own thing
I lay here beside her but her eyes they ain't on me
I love her - but her mind's on other things

She's got too many memories 
of people that she needs
They wake her up and tear her down 
and she can't even sleep
I'm afraid that I'll never be the man she needs
I love her - but her mind's on other things

She needs someone to hold her tight 
and stay right by her side
But what she got was a sad little boy 
with a heart that's full of pride
Well she knows that I need her more than anything
I love her - but her minds on other things

I can see that she loves me but she needs to be free
No one can hold her too long, 
she rocks just like the sea
She wants to stay here with me 
but she's too smart not to leave
I love her - but her minds on other things


NO ORDINARY HOME
by D. Wood

Iím gonna take a - take a ride on home
Iím gonna take a - take a ride on home

Iím just driving on this ordinary day
Hoping that it donít decide to rain
Looking at the fields and counting all the bails of hay
Trying to keep inside my driving lane

Iím going home Ė where Iím seen just being me
Itís home Ė when I have a soul to feed
Itís home Ė but itís not what it used to be my home

Iím gonna take a - take a ride on home
Itíll be alright if itís a bit overgrown

Itís been too long since I was last on this road
Youíd think Iíd be the first to know
Time passes by just like those green mile marker posts
Sometimes you just canít just pick up a phone

Iím going home Ė where Iím seen just being me
Itís home Ė when I have a soul to feed
Itís home Ė but itís not what it used to be my home


Where I came to stop is not your ordinary home
Itís got an iron gate, a cross, and a headstone
Youíre never ready when itís someoneís time to go
But memories can be like going home

Iím going home Ė where Iím seen just being me
Itís home Ė when I have a soul to feed
Itís home Ė but itís not what it used to be my home

 


WANTED HER TO GO
by D. Wood

It wasnít long thereafter that trip we took together 
that things started cooling down
I had my best intentions and things that Iíll not mention 
that kept me coming Ďround for now

She always said that I was all that she ever wanted 
all that sheíd ever need
And if we ever broke up, Iíd be the one that gave up 
Iíd be the one to leave

She thought that I would lose it Ė leave it up to me to prove it

See I wanted her to go
You see I wanted her to go
She took my hand and said, ďIíll miss you, babeĒ 
I wonder if she knows
I wanted her to go - I wanted her to go

She told me to remember the first part of September 
sheíd be off to see her mom
My wheels started turning Ė my ears had hardly heard it 
old feelings were coming on

She thought that I would lose it Ė leave it up to me to prove it

Chorus

I shut the trunk and then we hopped into the cab
I sent the taxi on and helped her with her bag
She's on the runway and I wave goodbye
She's off to LA through the morning sky
I never thought I'd never see her again
I learned what I had then
And lost what should have been

See I wanted her to go
You see I wanted her to go
She took my hand and said, ďIíll miss you, babe 
and I love you soĒ
I wanted her to go Ė I wanted her to go




THE LETTERS
by D. Wood


Got a letter from my brother right by my side
In a suitcase for my mother with many more inside

How do you know what to say when youíve gone so wrong?
Will it matter anyway when itís been so long?

Many miles on the highway in the passing lane
I smell the oil on the header as it burns away
And the letters were never opened Ďcause they were never mailed
I guess my brother was always hoping he wouldnít die in jail

Ever had too much to say for one phone call?
Will it matter anyway when itís been so long?
Should I find a place to stay or keep driving on?

Itís a dewy darkened morning in a southern town
I pulled the car up to the curbside and I shut the motor down
Itís been too long since my mother and I stood face to face
I set the suitcase on the front porch and looked around the place

How do you know what to say when youíve gone so wrong?
Will it matter anyway when itís been so long?
Maybe somewhere along the way sheíll hear my song
As I pulled away I saw the porch light turn on



SCAR
by D. Wood


Itís another late night when a ring becomes a moan
I always know itís her before I pick up the phone
Iíve been drinking yes, and Iím sure sheíll guess that I drove myself home
Iím in no mood right now for a beaten brow, but I guess I should have known

She said that Iíll be sorry now
But thatís one thing I canít allow
She thinks I need to grow
I think she needs to know
She's just another scar to liquor down

Sheís getting over me Ė I didnít get her anything
My heart is on my sleeve but she keeps hers in a sling
Iíve been drunk before and I know for sure I will get that way again
The world at most is full of scars and ghosts of hearts that wouldnít bend

She said that Iíll be sorry now
But thatís one thing I canít allow
She thinks I need to grow
I think she needs to know
She's just another scar to liquor down

She says she takes me when she goes
But I think itís taking me too long to learn what everybody seems to know

She said that Iíll be sorry now
But thatís one thing I canít allow
She thinks I need to grow
I think she needs to know
She's just another scar to liquor down


UPSTATE
by Jim O'Brien


Conductor says weíre in his way
As we sit making him late
He knows us not, calls us cowards
Heíll get his, weíll get ours

Weíll get off next exit
Not this one but the one coming up
Hurry up Hurry up
Iíve had enough of this stuff 
I was the one who was supposed to be tough

Utica and Rome, Hecate County,
The Mohawk and the mighty Hudson
Beautiful rivers, glorious cities
All filled with oceans of opportunities

Weíll get off next exit
Not this one but the one coming up
Hurry up Hurry up
Iíve had enough of this stuff 
I was the one who was supposed to be tough

The map he holds inside his hands
The locals lost faith long ago
The natives never did understand
That this thing heíd like to forget
Would figure in our fate as we clutched cigarettes
Stuck Ė Frantic
Behind southbound freight

Used to rise up in the east
Now youíre wandering from left to right
Used to set out in the west
I donít know where to go tonight




FISHERMAN'S BLUES
by The Waterboys

I wish I was a fisherman tumbliní on the seas
Far away from dry land and itís bitter memories
Casting out my sweet line with abandonment and love
No ceiling beariní down on me ícept the starry sky above
With light in my head and you in my arms - Woohoo!

I wish I was the brakeman on a hurtliní fevered train
Crashing headlong into the heartland like a cannon in the rain
With the beating of the sleepers and the burniní of the coal
Counting the towns flashing by in a night thatís full of soul
With light in my head and you in my arms - Woohoo!

Well I know I will be loosened from bonds that hold me fast
That the chains hung all around me will fall away at last
And on that fine and fateful day I will take thee in my hands
I will ride on the train - I will be the fisherman
With light in my head and you in my arms Ė 
Woohoo hoo!



LEFT HAND
by The Gaskets

Used to be right,
You are a chemical
I've got to mix you in so I don't taste you anymore

Out for the night
Condition critical
Somehow I have got to learn to just let these things go

Sell me something I haven't bought before
I'm not sure I really like this store
Just hold out your left hand and shake me

You, a nice upstanding
Kentucky gentleman
i'm so quick to judge but you just always seem to be on trial

Me, almighty
preaching to the choir now
I can't believe i haven't learned to shut my mouth yet

Sell me something I haven't bought before
I'm not sure I really like this store
Just hold out your left hand and shake me

Every time it happens
We always end up laughing
But when has it gone too far
It's times like these
I wonder who we really are

Sell me something I haven't bought before
I'm not sure I really like this store
Just hold out your left hand and shake me
