IT’S ONLY NATURAL

 

I hardly know her and here I am holdin’ her hand again

Fallin’ in love seems so easy I tell her I don’t understand 

And she says

 

It’s only natural if that’s the way you feel

And if it’s only natural then you know it must be real

It’s only natural

 

Later on we are sharin’ a romantic evenin'

It's so beautiful I tell her I must be day dreamin’

But she says

 

It’s only natural if that’s the way you feel

And if it’s only natural then you know it must be real

It’s only natural

 

Love don’t heat up the atmosphere

Love don’t chop down a tree

Love don’t dirty up the oceans baby

It’s as natural as can be

Got no pollution - it’s GMO free

 

Lyin' with my lady tell me what could be more organic?

There's nothin' artificial, nothin' enigmatic

And she says

 

It’s only natural if that’s the way you feel

And if it’s only natural then you know it must be real

It’s only natural

LYRICS

WHERE THERE'S SMOKE

 

Where there's smoke - there's fire

Well put your hand on the heat and watch them flames

Get high and high and higher baby

Where there's smoke...

 

Girl - she likes to play with matches

She smokes them reefer cigarettes in bed

She's a live wire - she's locked and loaded

Foolish hearts will wind up dead

 

To other women she's like a lioness

Struttin' through a pack of hens

They cackle when they see her comin'

They try and hide their men - where there's smoke!

 

Ah, Smokey says:

"This world will kick you around

It's never been a fair fight

So who's to say what's right or what's wrong?

And if the wrong thing turns out to be right -

I'll burn the old house down tonight!

With nothing - nothing to regret

Only things to forget..."

 

Her daddy said "You'd better be a good girl"

Her Momma, she just didn't care

So the girl didn't know if she was comin' or goin' - 

But now she's always there - Where? There? Where? There!

  HE'S COMING HOME

 

Am I really awake - tell me I ain't asleep

'Cause this is the day - I've been waiting for weeks

This old house, it's been lonely - since he went away

But he keeps his promises - and I know I can say

 

He's coming home

He's coming home

He's coming home

Today

 

Some hearts may grow fonder

When they're apart and alone

But my heart, it doesn't wander

It just wants you back here at home

 

Has the sky ever looked so blue?

Tell me when have the trees ever looked so green?

It feels like the first time that I've ever seen them

So I'm gonna get myself together and I'm gonna be on my way

I want to watch that bird in the sky come down the runway

 

He's coming home

He's coming home

He's coming home

Today

HERE I GO AGAIN

 

I know all about this feelin’

I’ve been here before

You know love’s got me reelin’

Got my hand on that door

 

But is she a lady or a tiger?

Will she bring pleasure or pain?

Am I strong enough to fight her?

Here I go again - here I go again

 

Well it’s just a chance encounter

Soon we’re oldest of friends

I don't leave without her number

And a time to meet again

 

But is she a lady or a tiger?

Will she bring pleasure or pain?

Am I strong enough to fight her?

Here I go again - here I go again

 

There ain’t nothin’ you can do

When love’s really got a hold on you

You’ve got to see it through

 

There's no road map to get there

And I’ll be lucky to stay

You never know when or where - or if 

Love will find a way

 

But is she a lady or a tiger?

Will she bring pleasure or pain?

Am I strong enough to fight her?

Here I go again - here I go again

MYSTERY

 

In between moments in time

When everything is left behind

When all is new to see

Mystery

 

It’s like a summer snowfall

Rain on a sunny day

Something you never thought could be

It’s like the girl who comes ‘round

When you’ve been feelin’ so down

And how she came’s a

Mystery

 

Down in the hole

In the sky

In time that only passes by

In the things we never see

Mystery

 

And you can look forever

To find a reason why

You’ll never find the key

Why is there always one more

One more endless sea?

It all remains a 

Mystery

THINGS THAT MAKE ME CRY

 

Crimson flames of the setting sun

A word of praise for a job well done

The laughing song inside a child’s eyes

These are among the things that make me cry

 

The magic touch in love’s soft caress

The power of true forgiveness

Hands of hope risen to the sky

These are among the things that make me cry

 

But most of the time

I hide all that away

Out on the run

Aloof, afraid to let the tears come

 

So all alone sometimes some quiet night

The hidden tears I can no longer fight

My joys and fears transcend this thin disguise

In soft waterfalls

Things that make me cry

 

And then there are all the tragedies

From broken hearts to senseless killing sprees

And who among us wants to answer why?

These can’t help but be things that make me cry

 

But most of the time

I hide all that away

Out on the run

Aloof, afraid to let my tears come

 

So all alone sometimes some quiet night

The hidden tears I can no longer fight

My joys and fears transcend this thin disguise

In soft waterfalls

Things that make me cry

DEM BLUES IS BAD

 

I've been lookin' for the reason why I got dem blues today

I've been lookin' for the reason why I got dem blues today

Now I know I'm not a bad man

But the blues got me feelin' that way

That's why they say

 

The blues ain't nothin' but a good man who's feelin' bad

The blues ain't nothin' but a good man who's feelin' bad

Worried, broke or lonesome - or sad

Dem blues is bad 

 

Right on out of the blue, my girl - she can put a big chill in my heart

Right on out of the blue, oh my sweet lovin' little girl, she can put the big chill right in my heart

One day she's into lovin' - and the very next day she's into martial arts

Boom! Pow! Zing!  -  That's when I remember

That's when I remember

 

That the blues ain't nothin' but a good man who's feelin' bad

The blues  - they ain't nothin' but a good man who's feelin' bad

Worried, broke or lonesome - or sad

Dem blues is bad

 

Now money worries they ain't nothin' but just another day in my life

Money worries, they ain't nothin' no no no - but just another day in the life

Now dem brokedown blues wants to be my friend

And dem busted blues -  dey wants to be my wife... 

 

Now the world's a crazy place - so many people born to lose

I'm tellin' you the world's a crazy place mama

Too many people - too many good people just born, born, born - born to lose

Today I feel like one of those good people

Those good people with the blues

 

That’s why the blues ain't nothin' but a good man who's feelin' bad

I'm tellin ya the blues they ain't nothin' but a good man who's feelin' bad - so bad

Worried, broke or lonesome - or sad

Troubled, cheatin', loathsome - mad!

Just when you think your skies are blue, son - you'll be had 

'Cause dem blues is bad

LET IT GO

 

I’ve heard about your mission

About your rise to the top

I’ve heard about your condition

I’ve heard you don’t know when to stop

 

You can’t win

You gotta choose

You keep it up

You’re gonna lose

Everything you know

Let it go

 

You talk about your callin’

How you’re destined for success

Reality you’re always stallin’

And to hell with all the rest

 

Wake up way before the sunshine

Check out the Hang Seng news

Pour yourself a bowl of headlines

As deadlines come due

Starched white and Italian pinstripes

A double-breasted tomb

Throw down some jo

Ready to go

You churn ‘em and you burn ‘em

You court 'em and you short 'em

You fake 'em and you bake 'em 

And you rake in all the dough

 

Walkin’ on the edge, on that fine line

On a bed of burnin' coal

Gamblin' everything this time

Gamblin' your soul

THESE DREAMS

 

Awoke from another nightmare again

These dreams have never been what you’d call a good friend

 

There is a river

I can’t seem to get across

I look always 

I am lost

Again

 

That deju vu thing again it’s gettin’ old - cold

History’s lessons go unlearned, and a nasty past unfolds

 

There is a river

I can’t seem to get across

I look always 

I am lost

Again

 

All those demons layin’ right there in the palm of my hand

Who is responsible and who really understands?

 

The boys on the bridge are gettin’ tense

Rocks are walkin’ on the water, these dreams don’t make any sense

 

There is a river

I can’t seem to get across

I look always 

I am lost

Again

 

Awoke from another nightmare again

These dreams have never been what you’d call a true friend

Hey I need a friend

 

I’m just waitin’ on a friend

CHAMPAGNE ENTHUSIASM

 

The champagne bottle lies waiting to be picked up off the floor

You could save it in the corner

But that would just make it another dusting chore

 

Last night we were drinkin’ 

You were talkin’ I was listening

I heard the same old words I’ve heard before

But your champagne enthusiasm won’t get to me any more

 

It was warm with you inside here 

And the sound of rain last night made me sigh

But that old umbrella you're still offering is leaking

It won't keep me dry

 

Last night we were drinkin’ 

You were talkin’ I was listening

I heard the same old words I’ve heard before

But your champagne enthusiasm won’t get to me any more

 

There was a time when all I wanted was you

You told me how beautiful it was all going to be

But things started to break, how many lost weekends can you take?

The sober truth I now can finally see

 

Now don’t get me wrong

We’re both trying to find that dream

But I won’t be made a fool for

Another one of your champagne schemes

 

Last night we were drinkin’ 

You were talkin’ I was listening

I heard the same old song I’ve heard before

But your champagne enthusiasm won’t get to me any more

No it won't get to me anymore!

Yeah yeah yeah!
