Track Name: Skeeter
SKEETER

Skeeter left one broken night in 1989
He tossed a Jim Beam bottle at the city limits sign
In a stolen car with a wad of cash heading towards the dawn
Fortified by holy pills his road goes on and on

(chorus)
Skeeter’s going home tonight one way or another
He’s calling up all of his imaginary lovers
Dialing wrong numbers bending strangers' ears
Pleading amnesty for all his wasted years

Dad awoke to the slamming of the rusty screen door
Mama found her empty jewerly box on the floor
Too late to try and stop him there's no time for regrets
The only thing he’s looking for is how to forget

Those Dallas nights keep creeping back in waves of tragedy
Was it Jane or Marylou the face he always sees
The dampness of her tears yanks his memory chain
Another stolen heart along with all her pocket change

Skeeter’s taking refuge where the dirty laundry hides
Serenaded on the couch to the buzzing of the flies
While moon beams dance through broken windows something calls him home
The sleeping vagabond takes his final ride alone
Track Name: Pirates
PIRTATES

I’m a pirate on a sea of open arms
the treasure I seek is stolen love
no ransom I take
no princess escapes
ocean below hearts above

like long john silver on the bounding main
navigating on through a storm
cutlass by my side avast and belay
looking for a harbor safe and warm

swashbuckling tales of buccaneers
treasure chests uncovered two by two
grappling hooks in hand
I’m prepared to make my stand
my boarding party waits for it's cue

pieces of eight mean nothing to me
it’s that sweet embrace that I desire
just one diamond kiss stolen from ruby lips
sets my looting soul on fire
Track Name: Lupines
LUPINES

She's the nectar of a brand new flower
A summer that they thought would never end
A two-lane highway through a river valley
Setting sun just around the bend

Picking lupines, purple lupines
She always loved lupines the best
She looked right through them and started blooming
Put 'em in a jar with the rest

It's the dawn of a brand new morning
The horizon is a lupine-covered band
Her love's still captive up in that tower
The rescue never goes to plan

He brings her lupines, purple lupines
She always loved lupines the best
She looked right through them and started blooming
Put 'em in a jar with the rest

She's the music, any kind she chooses
Half the time she's mumbling to herself
Can't bear the truth, no, and can't dispute it
Can't take a memory down from the shelf

Of picking lupines, purple lupines
She always loved lupines the best
She looked right through them and started blooming
Put 'em in a jar with the rest
Oh put 'em in a jar with the rest
Track Name: Uniforms
UNIFORMS

this uniform I wear
this cover on my bones
has trapped me in an old mans skin
and followed me home

somewhere inside my head
lives a younger man
that still wears a smaller size
who's chin stretches the world still looks bright
days full of sunny skies

the ever hopeful smiles and inviting looks
of a young girls wondering eye
once cast my way are not the same today
they can’t see through my disguise

I’m trying to connect the face in the mirror
with the one that lives inside
because in my mind standing behind
is the one this uniform hides
Track Name: Got Your Back
GOT YOUR BACK

A memory that you could fly
Spreads its folded wings
It's been so long since you dared try
Your pockets are full of dreams

But Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

I'm working on a time machine
To find the movies that I've never seen
The promises I couldn't keep
Oh the saint I cannot be

But Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

If winter chills you to the bone
My hands are always warm
I'll shovel all the driveway snow
And start soup on the stove

Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

If nightmares come and tell you lies
Don't toss and turn
I'll play your favorite lullabies
Until the dawn returns

Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

The wiser folks they tell us so
Hard times will come and go
Through it all our love just grows
I know it's built to last

Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back

But Babe I got your back
Whatever you need I want you to have
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back
Any time you're troubled just ask
I got your back
Track Name: Please Tell Me
PLEASE TELL ME

please tell me what's on your mind
what's that shadow over your heart
I thought you’d be here by my side forever
so please tell me why we've drifted apart

you can't hold a person to their words
a promise must be kept of free will
and even though your heart has grown colder
I loved you then and I love you still

you always told me that I was so special
a touch like no other you once said
so don’t tell me that life you pledged is over
or your undying love now is dead

don’t take the dreams we used to share
and cast them aside throw them away
for if dreams become only memories
I’ll lay awake and search for yesterday
Track Name: Crybaby
You’ve been crying big baby tears
And I’ve been trying not to cover my ears
Sit in the corner go on fuss and sulk
See how well that works for you boy

I’m all warmed up and ready for
You to pick yourself up off the floor

Spouting nonsense kicking open doors
You don’t like your dinner
Just throw it on the floor
Whine and wailing like a foghorn loud
The upstairs neighbors are getting out

When you come to try and make it right
We’ll talk it over go on apologize
And take your hundredth second chance
You’re lucky I love you now go to bed
Track Name: Poison
POISON

her love is poison poison
like a witches brew
I drank it in with every single kiss
my heart said danger danger
trouble through and through
I've never ever known a love like this

she conquered my world
like a venus in the night
the goddess of passion and desire
she offered me a sip of forbidden love
consuming me with a raging fire

my number was up
once I drank from her cup
a potion of seductive force
I guess I should tasted
temptation on her lips
hearts on a collision course

I fell into a trance a deep romantic spell
an overdose of love’s narcotic pill
I woke up with a need a craving desire
that only her kisses could fufill
Track Name: Man On My Moon
MAN ON MY MOON

You've known me, in all of your years I've been true
Held in orbit by a simple lovesick tune
All for you the first man on my moon

To reach me through endless skies your song flew
Made a landing in a dream in my room
Your melody has made me a lonesome fool
Footprints stayed but the flag won't wave without you
I long for you the first man on my moon
This song's for you the first man on my moon

When you're weary I'll fill up your rocket with my fuel
Chart you a course back to my room
Renew you when you're feeling old and used
I'll shine on the light of my youth
I shine for you the first man on my moon
I long for you the first man on my moon

You've known me, in all your years I've been true
Held in orbit by a simple lovesick tune
If I lost you I would paint all of my shadows in blue
Every valley, every crater, every dune
Just for you the first man on my moon
I long for you the first man on my moon
All for for you the first man on my moon
Track Name: Through The Night
THROUGH THE NIGHT

full moon beams whisper
dreams from the stars
falling softly like rain
bathed in tears silent hours fall
starry night a lonesome refrain

solitude reigns in this midnight reverie
starlight captured in a mirror
shadows surround rays of lunar light
a reprieve from nocturnal fears

in the deepening gloom veiled in mystery
a prisoner of the mystic night
eclipsed by the sun silhouetted by the moon
falling though time riding streams of light

always left alone never understanding why
you take what you want nothing to say
passion words like wine to the trusting heart
forgotten promises fall by the way
Track Name: Fall Slow
FALL SLOW

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are

Leave me with a tender kiss
And the hope for a thousand more like it
Our worlds part up ahead
Some day maybe I'll go home with you instead

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are

Take a stroll in the sunset glow
Take my hand and hold it close
No need to say what's on our minds
We've seen the stardust in each other's eyes

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are

Night by night day by day
Loving miles and days away
When I wake with a song
Give me daydreams to hold in my arms

Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are
Fall slow shooting star
Burn low burn hot
Wherever you are
Track Name: Daydreams
DAYDREAMS

chasing the night
by the stars fading light
the rising sun kindles the flame
dancing to the sound of time passing by
yesterday and tomorrow are the same

sunlight on the dew morning returns
left over notions of sleep
that wistful state of mind pursuing memories
finding one to hold onto and keep

awakened by the dawn eyelids like a veil
peering through with crystal sight
reflections of a song inspiring imagery
filtering the morning light

the new day breaths prisms on the wing
elastic time follows through
a faint refrain suspended on the air
saying dreams really can come true
