THE FLYING TRAIN

This train

Carries a heavy load

This train

Is headed to a brand new road

The wheels came off this train

It was due to arrive

At about 7:05

It’s hard to stay on the tracks

If you can’t keep with the facts

It’s a heavy load

But this old train is gonna stay on course

And you don’t listen yet you say I’m beating a dead horse

And keeping it on the rails

You know good deeds merits pretty loud hails

I’m not a conductor

I’m the engineer

And a real go getter

And I can’t be more clear

I may be a little late

But it’ll be so great

Call it destiny, call it fate

But I got all that I hold so dear

It’s a heavy load

But this train

Will arrive

Please refrain and don’t complain

It’s all hard work and all I strive

Wheels off the track

I got control, wanna get there alive

Maybe it’s time to fly

And turn this old train

Into a plane and fly

I’ll go rail by rail

Build this all spike by spike, nail by nail

Shovel all this coal

Just to reach my goal

I know what I’ve earned and just what is mine

And keep going forward and get there nearly on time

This train

Will get me there one way or another

Even if I have to fly

Let’s see if this old train can fly

Let’s see if this train can fly

WHAT CAN I DO?

I work to live

I work for you

You’re not happy

What can I do?

I do it all

All for you

I try to change

I try to please

What more can I do?

I’d do it all

All for you

And when spring comes

I’ll give you flowers

And when it’s summer

I’ll take you away

And in the fall

We will feast

And in the winter

I’ll keep you warm

What more can I do?

If you keep it all inside

How will I know?

Where is my chance?

If I can’t have a moment of time

What could I do

If I can’t please you?

I sit and wait

Patiently and out of time

What can I do?

I tried to please

Only you

BRING ON THE RAIN

I don’t know why I love you

When you treat me like you do

And I don’t know why

I’d ever let my heart lie to me

And maybe you and I see things differently

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

I don’t know why I let you get to me

And maybe I should let you be

But you cast such a spell

That places me between heaven and hell

No resentment for being such a glutton for punishment

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

Treat me like a dog and call my name

And I’ll keep coming back again

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

Chalk it all up to love

As long as the stars are above

It’s nothing new, I love you

What could I ever say?

It’s the same thing everyday

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

HOW LOVE GOES

Like the ocean, the tides of joy and the tides of sorrow come in and go out

Like a seashell left like a memento, or a memory

And like a breeze, it’s a wind of change

Nothing means shit anymore

When your world is crashing down

And shatters

Like broken glass on the floor

And like the sudden breeze

Clouds roll in and out so swiftly

Don’t forget about me

When I’m gone

This time I’m gone

Like the scab

That you picked on me

Just to see if the wound was still there

Did you think I was not human?

As I stared

Like I wasn’t there?

Like I didn’t care?

Like I wasn’t scared?

Don’t forget about me

Remember I was there

Like the sky, can get foggy, and then be so clear

Like the night can be so dark, then the stars come out to light the way

Just like a single day, the sun can set beyond the horizon, but then it rises high again

Don’t forget me

Memories might fade

But I wouldn’t forget about you

Only why we fought

Maybe I’ll be back someday

But just don’t forget about me

And how I loved you so

Just so you know

That’s how love goes

That’s how it goes

WASHES ALL OVER ME

I wish I could fly through time

Back to changing my ways

And how I ever let you slip away

I wish I could correct all my loneliness

Masking my depression with a simple smile

Is something I’d really like to address

Living life

Trial by fire

And it washes all over me

Feelings

I’m my worst enemy

My worst critic and cynic

Never thought I was good enough

To deserve you

And to love you

I wish I could call you

Not that you’d care

And tell you I miss you

Not that you’d care

But you made such a huge difference in my life

For better or for worse, I think that’s fair

And all of my feelings

Wrap a hug around me

And washes all over me

I’m so glad I met you

It makes me happy and blue

And it washes all over me

My dear friends

Always have love to lend

It washes all over me

The hurt and the pain

Is always the same

I wear it like an old shirt

And then there’s the love

That covers me from above

And rains down

Down

And it washes me

And reminds me

Reminds me of all the good things I have

All I have in my life

And it washes me

I wish everything was perfect

I wish I was too

And it’s a thought I can’t reject

Feeling very emu

Changing up my mood

And it washes me

It consumes me

I just want love

And know that everything’s gonna be alright

All of these things

Washes me

Washes me

Washes me

Washes me

I love you

And it washes me

Washes me

Something you couldn’t do

Left it up to me

And here’s where I am

Where I am

Hopefully a better man

A better man.

WILDFLOWER

First things first

I’m just outspoken-I’m not bad

In my life I just have a thirst

Ever since I was born under a moon that was mad

And my dear mama

Knew I was too much to handle

Compared to my darling papa

He could not hold a candle

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

My friends would come

To have a drink

It may not have been all, but some

Would have to stop and think

If I went off in my way

Behind the laughter and the tears

I always knew the right things to say

Because like a fine wine, I get better through the years

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

You must let me submit to all my eccentricities

And how it pleases me

It’s just how I am

And I just don’t give a damn

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

Then one day I met a new flame

She was so calming and soothing

And she thought that this lion she could tame

It really was very moving

Until I took her out

And we drank and danced for days

And I showed her what life’s all about

She’ll tell you I’m crazy, but I don’t care what she says

I’m a wildflower

A vision of beauty

Some say a cutie

I may lack in humbleness

But I will address

And say it to your face

I may be a basket case

But that’s a wildflower

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

And now I am old

And I live in home

But I’m not cold

Cause in these halls I roam

And I sing and dance

And flirt with the old ladies if I get the chance

And I still rant and I rave

Life, love, and happiness, I still crave

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Now I’ve grown up and I see

I’m a wildflower

I’m just a wildflower
