I was sleepin' when the sun did shine But I didn't care See, I could sleep away the whole daylight If you ain't layin' there And lately this disease I've found Is all I think about Won't you pick my feet up off the ground When the night goes fallin' down Then just lift me up when the morning comes So I don't decay away Feed me up on your lovin' arms And I'll find my home someday Lift me up when the morning comes So I don't fade away Feed me up on your lovin' arms And I'll find my home someday I'll find my home In your arms someday I'll find my home I was dreamin' like a baby Bound in the innocence of life When I could hear your angel siren sounds And my innocence just died I could feel it in every step I take As my soul began to drain On my knees in the streets with a clouded sky And a stabbin' midnight rain So lift me up when the morning comes So I don't decay away Feed me up on your lovin' arms And I'll find my home someday Lift me up when the morning comes So I don't fade away Feed me up on your lovin' arms And I'll find my home someday I'll find my home In your arms someday I'll find my home Long as you.. Lift me up when the morning comes So I don't decay away Feed me up on your lovin' arms And I'll find my home someday Lift me up when the morning comes So I don't fade away Feed me up on your lovin' arms And I'll find my home someday I'll find my home In your arms someday I'll find my home

She can't be true But she won't lie She won't follow you Like a puppy by your side She says there'll come a time When we will part Because I got a wild, wild ramblin' heart 'Cause I got a wild, wild ramblin' heart When you're broke and lonely And you find her face She'll be dying only Just to look at you and say that, 'The next good thing I have, I'm gonna end before it starts Because I got a wild, wild ramblin' heart 'Cause I got a wild, wild ramblin' heart I once believed I played the wise man's game But was I taken for a fool? I fell into her bluff now and I'm ashamed For I believe that I was taken for a fool Yes I believe that I was taken for a fool When the night is cold And her skin is bare When the lights are low And you're locked into her stare She sure can play alot of little pretty games Inside the dark Because she got a wild, wild ramblin' heart She got a wild, wild ramblin' heart There ain't no never ending light inside her eyes There ain't no shiny diamonds Only coal inside that hides Well they may look like a lamb But they're stone cold like a shark Because she got a wild, wild ramblin' heart She got a wild, wild ramblin' heart I once believed I played the wise man's game But was I taken for a fool? I fell into her bluff now and I'm ashamed For I believe that I was taken for a fool Yes I believe that I was taken for a fool If you fall in love Don't fall for her There ain't nothing there But a world of pain and hurt Well she may promise you the sun, the sky, the stars But she got a wild, wild ramblin' heart She got a wild, wild ramblin' heart

Well a woman like you could never love me And a woman like you could never have the time A woman like you ain't thinkin' of me A woman like you don't even know my kind And a woman like you ain't got no reason Oh to follow me around A woman like you could have a man for every season While I just wait for you the whole year 'round I wait for a woman like you Wait for a woman like you Wait for a woman like you Wait for a woman like you Well a woman like you would see right through me A woman like you don't even know I'm there A woman like you has always got someone else to see While I hide in the shell of a silent soul just a-standin' there While a woman like you just walks along Probably won't remember my name A woman like you could never sing with me a song See I just sing with the lonesome fools in a fairy tale that waits For a woman like you I wait for a woman like you I wait for a woman like you Wait for a woman like you

The wild young They were riled from A sudden break along the skyline And a chill upon the air Felt the sea rise Flyin' waves cry Crashing thunder on the shoreline All the weight the rocks would bear But the sun soon hides Behind cold forbidden skies Like our song that soon would fade into a prayer And then like child's play Run and hide away Singin' over and over again Come and catch me if you dare But it always seems when the sky turns gray And the light fades away And you begin to feel the rain Well the sun comes rising And it calls your name While you were standing Out in the pouring rain Dreams are calling Come and catch me before I fade Into a lonesome skyway A broken highway With no means of escape A broken headlight Weird morning twilight Shifting clouds around the mountain Rattled rain upon the road And where we lay Levies gave way Swimming upstream through an avalanche Where the raging river flowed But the fog turned blue When the sun burned through And the fortunes that we all knew would come Shined their sweet eyes For a moment right Before the clouds came in and swept them on the run But it always seems when the sky turns gray And the light fades away And you begin to feel the rain Well the sun comes rising And it calls your name While you were standing Out in the pouring rain Dreams are calling Come and catch me before I fade Into a lonesome skyway A broken highway With no means of escape When the storm cleared We were born here Another season shed its song upon the wind And with bright eyes Chasing blue skies Always rising never falling On our wild angel wings And they send to you My lone dreaming friend An invitation If you're patient And you got the time to spend To come and roam with me Where the sidewalk never ends And we can dream away Dreams are calling Come and catch me before I fade Come and catch me before I fade

Time was never really ever a true friend of mine Stripped away my season before I felt the warm sunshine I understand your reason though I never got your rhyme That's why I'm wrapped inside this weird paradigm Heading on that highway though my feet could barely stand I wandered around your mountain, now I'm back where I began She flew off into the breeze like a tiny grain of sand And I just can't let my heart chase her again Well I just won't let my heart chase her again Until I know I've come to a place Where I'm happier that I don't see her face And to say that if I don't hear from you In a million foggy moons It will still be too soon for my taste And though at nights I lie wide awake I'm still dreaming of your face Well the summer seemed to come too soon And the spring had died away But pretty soon them autum leaves Will be haunting around my way Them winter winds so quick to strip My dying leaves away And as you can see my outlook's mighty gray She once tried to walk my shoes But her feet were bloodied blue She spun her lonesome head around And wondered what to do And there I stand like a fool there with my broken heart in hand And I just can't let my heart chase her again Well I just won't let my heart chase her again Until I know I've come to a place Where I'm happier that I don't see her face And to say that if I don't hear from you In a million foggy moons It will still be too soon for my taste And though at nights I lie wide awake I'm still dreaming of your face

They blessed your highway in blue and gray And the wildest colors of the dreams you chase They let the secrets of the worldly ways Drift off into the lightning's blaze And they cast new fortunes on your solemn days So that if you ask, they're sure to say That 'yes your children can surely stay If the world don't come to an end today' So how, how have we been Livin' in the way the world is I used to know a road that traveled Along a newer dawn But now that road is gone And where the sun, she once burned strong That road is cold, dark, gone, gone When you woke with angels on that sunlit day When you found the dreams that you tried to save And you heard the rainfall on foreign plains With no tears of joy, only tears of pain And you fell upon the broken streets to pray And to all your prayers the angels say 'We cradled grace within your safest place In the bed you lay and we blessed your highway' So how, how have we been Livin' in the way the world is I used to know a road that traveled Along a newer dawn But now that road is gone And where the sun, she once burned strong That road is cold, dark, gone, gone

Hey there lady won't you walk with me And I could show you what you want to see Hey there lady won't you ride my wave And I could take you where the blue fish play Now there ain't no sorrow like the one you hold But you can't borrow what you've already sold I tried to follow but your trail turned cold And where my mind goes, well I just won't know But I'm sure gonna lose my mind Sure gonna lose my mind Sure gonna lose my mind Well I say, honey if you don't give me the time Hey there lady when your tides they turn They spin me upside down and I churn, churn churn There ain't no fire left yet still I'm burned You tried to teach me but I just won't learn You know I rode your rope, you know I've been your dope Set my shoes upon your slippery slope You cut me up yet somehow I still cope When my mind says yes, you say nope And I'm sure gonna lose my mind Sure gonna lose my mind Sure gonna lose my mind Well I say, honey if you don't give me the time Hey there lady when your spell's been cast My hazy horizon spins around too fast And I'm trapped somewhere in the distant past You know I might not make it out, i might not last But by your mattress is where I'm gonna crawl When all your future suitors, you know they stall, stall, stall And I'll be the one that's knocking down your wall And the only thing I ask is that you come when I call Or I'm sure gonna lose my mind Sure gonna lose my mind Sure gonna lose my mind Well I say, honey if you don't give me the time

Bound by fortune, I found you there Outstretched amongst the walking shadows of the sand And I watched as they wandered along Your fairytale angel land Well I stretched my noose and I could finally breathe Unstrapped my boots and I walked barefoot to where you'd be But I knew, I knew that it could never be that easy These fast dreams deceive me See 'cause my dreams they move to fast For me to catch you before you pass Oh but that's alright with me If you could stay this night for free Silent stars they reflect your lure A graceful angel bathing naked on the shore Quite a sight even a blind man in time could learn to adore Well now it don't matter if my eyes were wrong I'm long blinded by the lighting of your dawn But I knew, I knew that you were already gone These fast dreams done me wrong See 'cause my dreams they move to fast For me to catch you before you pass Oh but that's alright with me If you could stay this night for free

Born upon a sunny blue morning down in Georgia 600 some odd days gone by left behind on the winding coastline And by that time I realize that I could never really afford ya Not in any way not in any shape, not in any form or kind So I cut you loose like a bird upon the sea I shed my only chains and I was free And if we meet again I can't be sure So i roam this road alone forever more And ain't that just the way of the world To make certain that we never can forget And ain't that just the way of the world Spin your head around when you very least expect And all that's left of you and me Is down there buried deep Somewhere down in Georgia So we ride the rambling road up to where City skies would rise A perfect kind of paradise where the midnight lights the city streets of dreams And the undecided bride to be resides right by my side How quickly in our world the music died when through the storm we screamed So I cut you loose like a bird upon the sea I shed my only chains and I was free And if we meet again I can't be sure So i roam this road alone forever more And ain't that just the way of the world To make certain that we never can forget And ain't that just the way of the world Spin your head around when you very least expect And all that's left of you and me Is down there buried deep Somewhere down in Georgia Now the last I heard your heart was way up where The mountain skies are clean With a new life and a new world like a road of gold Laid out before ya When the night is dark and you hear our dying song Upon the stream I think you know if you follow it will carry you to somewhere down in Georgia

Baby I didn't mean to hurt you But I tried and tried to tell you I'm ashamed And I know my words they had no virtue And I deserve this lonesome walk out in the rain I don't know what I was waiting for Waiting for the sky to fall down anywhere I'd be But I know that I was just a fool and nothing more I had heaven laid right out before my feet And if there's one thing I One thing I If there's one thing I would have taken back It was leaving you like that I still remember when I fell for you And that awful day I fell back out again I don't know why all our plans just fell through But I lost my longtime one and only friend In this life you cannot take it back The ones you hurt And your forgiveness Well that's nothing meant for me But for whatever it is worth, my friend You got the kind of soul I'll always strive to be And if there's one thing I One thing I If there's one thing I would have taken back It was leaving you like that

What were they waiting for Waiting for some light to crack between the storms Searching for some peace in an endless land of war Looking for a long lost dream lost years before And everyone believed it all Believed one day the sun was bound to fall And shed some light upon this waterwall Where we'd led our ship into a blinding squall And now we're biding time waiting for the fog to lift While the night sky's fading hind the rolling cliffs All the world sings a song for the souls set adrift Blind and lost and tossed along the sea Got the world turned upside down off its heels So much you can't tell the difference between the sky and fields When the storm closes in all the souls will reveal Words that can't be spoken in a dream And there they waited long From darkest night up through the early dawn For a resurrection of their faith to spawn To rise from the sea and spread out wide and long And that a new found day awaits If they could only just see through the haze Then they're quite certain there's a brighter place Where every soul can spend their restful days And now we're biding time waiting for the fog to lift While the night sky's fading hind the rolling cliffs All the world sings a song for the souls set adrift Blind and lost and tossed along the sea Got the world turned upside down off its heels So much you can't tell the difference between the sky and fields When the storm closes in all the souls will reveal Words that can't be spoken in a dream

about

Written & Recorded in the summer & fall of 2010. The cover photo for this album was taken by Rick Johnson, the host of one of the first open mics I tried when I first moved to New York at an Irish bar called Paddy Reilly's. A good friend of mine with a thick English accent said about this photo; "Ay mate, that would make a great album cover"...so that's what I did.
