Amazed

I’m “amazed” I didn’t have a semi-decent audio of this one posted here.

Six-o-five I’m bound to this road again to nowhere new
Lost then found my thoughts tend to linger on a life with you
Hearts lived wild and free
Often won’t agree

Pictures, rows of threes, somewhat organized upon a shelf
Contradictory words often spoken just to spite myself
(But) Truth shines in your eyes
Sparkling with the sky

Wishing for the day that I come back to you
A few more things out here I have to do

While all I have,
Is just this photograph
The paper ages but it never seems you do
There to remind me how I’m always missing you

February cold when midwest winters come around
Feel this getting old while time so eagerly marches on
Always on my mind
Never left behind

The days are tough, the nights are long without you dear
After awhile the reason’s never been so clear

It’s you my friend
I long to see again
The moment I beheld you was the moment I was yours
A swing and miss at first but damn it’s turned out good

Always know you’ll have the best true part of me
The past is past now have to let it be

The tide will turn
And turning bring us ’round again
You know wherever I go I’m never very far away
Just reach out now and know the love I’m feeling every day
So take a breath and celebrate the making of the day
The dance has started and the band is on the stage
Instead of heartache there’s this feeling that remains…

One I’ve had for awhile and recorded in various formats, but this is a freshly produced version. It has become generally known as “… that south end song”.

Sunshine through my window, Saturday
Eyes open, the morning won’t delay
Whole long summer of summertime to play (hey, hey)
Cap’n Crunch cruisin’ the bay
Mighty Mouse coming to save the day
September’s a million years away

Grown up with a South End pedigree
Novas and Gremlins as far as I can see
Summer jams with some Jack and a little weed
Cruisin’ the Dixie at night
Leisure suits, Sunday school make it alright
16 years old with a full money back guarantee

Fast forward some 40 years or so
Fed up with this goddamn dog and pony show
The devil you don’t or the one you might think you know (you know)?
Barely maintaining the bar
It is what it is and they are what they are, just a
means to an end that’ll only get you so far

Life’s moments now glimpses flash by at a glance
Blink an eye and it’s all done and gone by so fast
Dwelling deep in the past
Does it all ever come ‘round to make sense at last?

First light of the morning, time to go
Loaded up the old Chevy, got the boys in tow
Quick stop for some gas and a little dough (let’s go)
Barking in rhythm and rhyme
Waggin’ tails steady in ¾ time.

Outbound on the highway, windows down
Sun smiles on the morning as we’re blowin’ town
Like living a dream
‘Cept the dream never was what you thought it would be
