Fire Down Below

I can see your devil crew
sharpening their knives

seems I got no chance
like a cat who burned nine lives

should a left me there
dead man on the shore

but here’s my secret weapon
looking to set the score

 

I got the fire, fire down below

I got the fire, you don’t know what I know

I got the fire, fire down below

I got the fire, fire down below


you’re one tough little band
of novice mutineers
next time finish a fight
before you start your cheers
why do you not listen
to the voice of the town crier
never bring a knife
to where there’s cannon fire

 

I got the fire, fire down below

I got the fire, you don’t know what I know

I got the fire, fire down below

I got the fire, fire down below

 

Hey fellas, good news

Look here, I got something to show you

The Ocean

I knew the life of a river boat hand

he loved that life even more than the land

the raw nature of a changing road

More tatoos than a girl named sue

tough as nails on that working crew

but a saints true heart of gold

 

all rivers run into the ocean

they change more than we can see

when you finally spill out into that ocean

be sure your heart is true and free

 

now my way never followed a plan

but for the touch of an unseen hand

and the sheer weight of a heavy load

I set sail on a different course

was met head on by a gale wind force

carried me home to be with you

 

all rivers run into the ocean

they change more than we can see

when you finally spill out into that ocean

be sure your heart is true and free

My Best Friend

No there never been a man like me
never will, never be

No there never been one like me
never will, you can see

 

I got plenty of confidence
but no man is an island

maybe we got something here
let’s just call me friend

you finish my sentences
you can even rhyme them

baby you are my best friend
never let it end

 

no there never been a girl like you
never will, never do

no there never been one like you,
come on babe lets see this through

 

I got plenty of confidence
but no man is an island

maybe we got something here
let’s just call me friend

I finish my sentences
I can even rhyme them

baby you are my best friend
never let it end

 

we got bigger dreams you and I
make-em good, gotta try

I got yours baby you got mine
never better, we got time

 

I got plenty of confidence
but no man is an island

maybe we got something here
let’s just call me friend

you finish my sentences
you can even rhyme them

baby you are my best friend
never let it end

Live

I remember the time
we walked on hard pack snow

down by the dock we talked about spring
dreamed of spring
we walked on the ice cold water
we walked on water
forgot about the now
and looked ahead to everything

why is youth wasted on the young
on the young

they know nothing but the now

and the fun, and the fun

live each moment like you’re really in it

make something of your here and now
and remember life is bigger than you boy
faith will get you through somehow

 

I remember the time
they said you could not go

don't let them place your dream on hold
dream on hold

in the end they just don’t matter
they don’t matter

time play your hand
this is not your time to fold

why is youth wasted on the young
on the young

they know nothing but the now
and the fun, and the fun

live each moment like you’re really in it

make something of your here and now
and remember life is bigger than you boy
faith will get you through somehow

A Big Song For Little People

down in the sand, the Texas sand

you burnt your little nose
and wiggled those ten toes

we chased the cat, the kitty cat

you skinned your knees
and ran from bumble bees

 

we had our song, my little hummer
it was like summer (all the time)
morning sunshine, nighty night
you grew up right , (you grew up right)

 

I held the hand
of my greatest fan

do the rosy round
the dog would knock you down

you slid on stairs
and slept with snuggle bears

we drove tiny cars
and dreamed up at the stars

 

we had our song, my little hummer
it was like summer (all the time)
morning sunshine, nighty night
you grew up right , (you grew up right)

 

now its your time, you have grown
God was good to you, you’re on your own

 

your painted face, that happy face

got everything, covered with ice cream

climb up that tree,  tell me what you see

that plane they’re in, fly to heaven

 

we had our song, my little hummer
it was like summer (all the time)
morning sunshine, nighty night

you grew up right , (you grew up right)

 

now we’re in a time, you have grown
God was good to you, you’re on your own

 

down in the sand, the Texas sand
you burnt your little nose
and wiggled those ten toes

Saints Walking By

Saint walker, life giver, do gooder

Builder don’t push soul digger

accept those who, oppose you try

your truth builds no need to lie

 

Saints walking by, saints walking by

 

Self righteous, cool cat, soul digger

Christ hater, peacenik, go figure

Tolerate by force they know their right

emotions rule their angry fight

 

Saints walking by, saints walking by

 

saint walking hero, everyone knows

faith walking hero, saint, saint, saint

 

Saints walking by, a saints walking by

your truth builds no need to lie

Saints walking by, saints walking by

I wish I was like that guy 

Saint walkers feed poor, shh sugar

Taxman feeds theirs, they swagger

remove those who, oppose they try

their truth builds one big lie

 

he gives more than he gets, soul digger

he loves all races soul digger

he looks up to women. soul digger

he says live and let live, soul digger

he tolerates your greedy ass, soul digger

Ship Of Fools

I found myself on a ship of fools
longing for wise counsel
and a way home

the captain and three

tossed me into the sea

only to be rescued by

one great big whale

Something fishy I smell
no tales dead men tell
But by some greater hand

I washed up on dry land
 

Throw me overboard

free me from this reckless hoard

I'm hoping to change my I ways

for the ship of fools

Throw me overboard

free me from this dumb ass hoard
We’re singing amazing grace

for the ship of fools

When that ship went down

another ten drifted round
to view the wreckage below

with their warmest respect
Then they sailed away

to find the dolphins at play
and dealt a hand for their fate

with Davy Jones

 

Throw me overboard

free me from this reckless hoard

I'm hoping to change my I way

for the ship of fools

Throw me overboard

free me from this dumb ass hoard
We’re singing amazing grace

for the ship of fools

Jig Is Up

I fancy the clothes you wear

and dig your hair
you come from another time

a far better place
Your mother raised you well

not far the apple fell
we met at the perfect time,

I’m lost in your grace

 

the jig’s up tonight

the gig’s up tonight
you and me we’re gonna be

but not like before

The jig’s up tonight

the gig’s up tonight
you and me we’re gonna be

but not like before


you treasure the smallest deed

not much we need

the war ended long ago

lost in that time

no hiding in the bay

we freely sail away

when i first found you

I lost my mind 


The jig’s up tonight

the gig’s up tonight
you and me we’re gonna be

but not like before

The jig’s up tonight

the gig’s up tonight
you and me we’re gonna be

but not like before

Sugar Man

you get away and greet the morning
as if it never has been seen
you burst into laugh without warning
and we follow you my queen

show down is at high noon
el presidente will be there
come down off your high wire
let’s dance down into the square

sugar man coming, lets go out
we got something without a doubt
I got you baby, you got me
let’s go down where the stuff is free

the silver moon, your crooked smile
as if we ever really know
you shout from rooftops on the mile
and say now its time to go

slow down and catch my fall
the benevoulount queen will be there
come up from your low places
let’s dance up into the square

 

sugar man coming, lets go out
we got something without a doubt
I got you baby, you got me
let’s go up where the stuff is free

Daylight

Daylight is only moments away
The lookout points to

the lights on the bay
The storms are behind us

voyage is done
We’re out of the night

bring on the blistering sun

Bring on the light, I can see daylight
shining light, i can see daylight

We're coming in slow

making for land
An hour from now

I’ll be where you stand   

 

Bring on the light

I can see daylight
shining light

I can see daylight

My feet hit the sand

running up the beach
I see you now

you’re nearly in reach

 

Bring on the light

I can see daylight
shining light

Ican see daylight

You see me now

throw open the gate
don't make me say it

don't make me wait
your the one that matters

most to me
i was once blind to it

but now i can see

 

Bring on the light, I can see daylight
shining light, i can see daylight
