Oceans of Love
 
 
 
So It Goes
 
Trying to get a record on the radio
And a kiss from a girl that everybody knows
I won’t tell you how but it all went south
And the whole wide world was watching
 
Woke up in the morning with a crazy head
And a job to do - Like I had any choice
 
But the truth is the sun was just too shiny
And the day was just too bright
I was on my own kind of highway
I had to leave it all behind
 
Songs had to be sung
Bells had to be rung
Things had to be done - I guess
Lies had to be told
Lives had to be sold
Not everyone’s intentions
Are always the best
 
And so it goes
So it goes
 
Running with the vipers on the mean streets
With deadlines to meet
And cocktails at the finest establishments
Waking in a doorway in a cold sweat
To a clip-clop serenade
Another world Another life
Inches away
 
But the truth is the sun was just too shiny
And the day was just too bright
I was on my own kind of highway
I had to leave it all behind
 
Songs had to be sung
Bells had to be rung
Things had to be done - I guess
Lies had to be told
Lives had to be sold
Not everyone’s intentions
Are always the best
 
And so it goes
So it goes
 
Trying to get a record on the radio
And a kiss from a girl that everybody knows
I won’t tell you how but it all went south
And the whole wide world was watching
 
 
The Sound of the Sea
 
Cold tired and lonely
More dead than living
Ain’t nothing holy
As far as I can see
 
I’m heading for the sound of the sea
Dead eyed dictator says he’s a man of peace
I’m walking down a railroad
Heading for the sound of the sea
 
I owe you nothing
I’ll give you nothing
I’ll give you nothing for free
You got all you’ll get from me
 
I’m just walking down a railroad
Heading for the sound of the sea
I’m just walking down a railroad
Heading for the sound of the sea
 
I owe you nothing
I’ll give you nothing
I’ll give you nothing for free
You got all you’ll get from me
 
I’m just walking down a railroad
Heading for the sound of the sea
I’m just walking down a railroad
Heading for the sound of the sea
 
I’m just walking down a railroad
Heading for the sound of the sea
 
 
Oceans of Love
 
Drove the car to the beach
Holding hands along the shore
Been here before Yeah
Been here before
 
Drove the car to the beach
Holding hands along the shore
Been here before Yeah
Been here before
 
It’s not hard to find
Some kind of paradise
It’s not hard to find
Some kind of paradise
 
Drove the car to the beach
Holding hands along the shore
Been here before Yeah
Been here before
 
It’s not hard to find
Some kind of paradise
 
Wide skies
Endless horizons
Wide skies
Endless horizons
 
Oceans of Love
Oceans of Love
 
Drove the car to the beach
Holding hands along the shore
Been here before Yeah
Been here before
 
Because we like it
Yeah we like it a lot
You know we like it
Yeah we like it a lot
 
 
 
Call it What You Like
 
You can dress it up
Any way you like
All kinds of fancy
With sprinkles on top
Cover it in sunshine
Blue sky and rainbows
 
Call it what you like
That ain’t no peace and love
 
I’ve been up and down
A multitude of highways
I’ve been in and out
Of a dozen different doors
I’ve been a fool for love
I’ve been a fool in every way
 
Call it what you like
That ain’t no peace and love
 
Just because you said it
It don’t make it true
Just because you thought it
That don’t make it new
I’ve been on the run
Deep inside of blue
 
Call it what you like
That ain’t no peace and love
 
One door opens
Another closes
You know you can’t complain
You made all the choices
You’ve been running
But you ain’t been hiding
 
Call it what you like
That ain’t no peace and love
 
That ain’t no peace and love
That ain’t no peace and love
That ain’t no peace and love
 
 
Sweet Song
 
Sweet song
Always looking for a sweet song
It’s hard to find anything wrong
Inside a sweet song
 
Ah the Tokyo lights
The tropical nights
Icy river Misty morning mountainside
 
Ah the Tokyo lights
The tropical nights
Icy river Misty morning mountainside
And the sweet song
The sweet sweet song
 
Well you know I saw the mountains
And you know I saw the shore
And you know I’d not seen anything
Like this before
 
And you know it blew my tiny mind
And you know I was lost in awe
As the fires from hell
Turned into paradise
Paradise
 
Yeah you know it blew my tiny mind
Or what was left of it
 
Ah the Tokyo lights
The tropical nights
Icy river Misty morning mountainside
 
Ah the Tokyo lights
The tropical nights
Icy river Misty morning mountainside
 
And the sweet song
The sweet sweet song
 
The sweet sweet song
The sweet sweet song

La la la la la la la laa

Running with a hopeless shadow
Trying to get away
You took a chance
You did the dance
Tried to break the chain
 
Find a place to be yourself
And open up your eyes
And watch the sunrise
Find the time
To leave the past behind
 
It’s all gone now
It all worked out
Time to hope they’re kind enough to sinners
 
You hit the ground
You’re still around
Will nature find a way
To be the winner
 
Be careful what you wish for
It might just come true
Be careful what you wish for
It might be the death of you
 
When the crazy takes a hold of you
There ain’t no way of knowing
If you’ll make it through
 
Where’s that old certainty now
Where’s that old certainty now
 
Sit around and watch the rain fall
Sit around and watch the rain fall
 
Sit around and watch the rain fall
Sit around and watch the rain fall
 
Where’s that old certainty now
Where’s that old certainty now

Ain’t No Sacrifice
 
These streets don’t care about me
no no no
They just want something from me
yeah yeah yeah
But they ain’t gonna get me
No no no no
They ain’t gonna get me
 
Gonna eat right
Gonna train hard
Gonna sleep at night
Ain’t no sacrifice
 
Gonna eat right
Gonna train hard
Gonna sleep at night
Ain’t no sacrifice
 
Gonna make it to the Super Bowl
Gonna wear that ring
Gonna make it to the Super Bowl
Gonna wear that ring
Gonna make it to the Super Bowl
Gonna wear that ring
 
Gonna get my two feet down
Gonna hold on tight
You’re gonna see me fly

No doubt about it
I know I want it
No doubt about it
I know I want it
 
 
 
I’ll Write a Love Song Yet
 
I’m a slave to the bottle and the six strings
All I ever do is sing
From early in the morning til the sun sets
And the stars are shining in the sky
And I’m still asking why
 
I’ll write a love song yet
I’ll write a love song yet
 
And I’ll go walking in the soft green grass
In the Northern Isles
Where the sun shines fast
All day long
I’ll be singing my song
 
I’ll write a love song yet
I’ll write a love song
I’ll write a love song yet
 
To the clouds in the sky
To the mountains high
To asking why why why
To taking another ride
To taking another ride
 
I’ll write a love song yet
I’ll write a love song
I’ll write a love song yet
 
To the cold black night
And the steel grey dawn
To the hateful eyes
And their frigid scorn
To the tired old lies
Wasted and worn
To the here
To the gone
 
I’ll write a love song yet
I’ll write a love song
I’ll write a love song yet
 
 
 
Calling on the Black Sky
 
Your body’s aching
Your money’s all spent
Got no idea where it all went
 
You can go down easy
You can go down slow
Only one thing certain here
You got to go
Yeah you gotta go
Yeah you gotta go
 
I was looking in the darkness
I don’t know why
I had this nightmare
Someone tattooed the sky
 
Everything went black
I couldn’t see the sun
We had to ask ourselves
Where it all went wrong
Where it all went wrong
Where it all went wrong
 
Calling on the living
Take another breath
Calling on the living
Calling on the dead
 
Calling on the living
Open up your eyes
Calling on the black sky
 
False prophets talking
Trying to make a dime
False prophets wasting
Everybody’s time
 
But people gonna listen
People gonna pay
Seems like it’s always gonna be that way
It’s gonna be that way
It’s gonna be that way
 
Calling on the living
Take another breath
Calling on the living
Calling on the dead
 
Calling on the living
Open up your eyes
Calling on the black sky
 
Your body’s aching
Your money’s all spent
Got no idea where it all went
 
You can go down easy
You can go down slow
Only one thing certain here
You got to go
 
 
I Called the Rising Sun
 
I called the rising sun
Asked him if he’s seen her
Is she doing alright
Is it a question of time
Could he get a message to her
 
All lies
All lies under the sun
You live by the lie
You might just
Come undone
 
I was lonely
Sad and lonely
Hell I didn’t even wanna know me
 
Awful lonely
Twice as crazy
Best not to get too close
 
All lies
All lies under the sun
You live by the lie
You might just
Come undone
 
All lies
All lies under the sun
You live by the lie
You might just
Come undone
 
I called the rising sun
I called the rising sun
I called the rising sun
 
Asked him if he’s seen her
 
 
Right Now
 
There’s an orange balloon
Floating in the clear blue sky
And I’m looking at you
Wondering how we got here
 
Right now let’s not
Be thinking about anything at all
Right now let’s just
Be here right now
Right now
 
I look into your eyes
Underneath a clear blue sky
 
I love you I love you
With everything I’ve got
I want you I need you
Right now
Right now
 
Underneath a clear blue sky
 
I look into your eyes
Underneath a clear blue sky
 
 
 
No Doubt
 
No doubt
You were a clever one
No doubt
You were a lucky one
No doubt
You thought you were a special one
But you’ll be gone tomorrow
And no one will give a damn
No one will give a damn
 
I’ll be
Up in the mountains
I’ll be
Down by the shore
I’ll be
In the heart of this man’s city
 
And you’ll be gone tomorrow
And no one will give a damn
No one will give a damn
 
You’ll be gone tomorrow
 
Now the darkness surrounds you
All you feel is cold
And a pain that’s deep inside of you
Did you let your ego
Take control of you
Yeah Yeah Yeah
 
No doubt
No doubt
 
I heard the winds a howling
I saw the darkened moon
The hounds of hell let loose
And coming after you
All the angels voices silent
All the gods avert their gaze
A deafening indifference
As you slowly skulk away
 
No doubt
 
 
 
Going to the Mountains
 
Dog tired
Hot wired
Hell bent on destruction
 
Heavy wheels rolling
Heavy hearts holding
All the cards
 
In the cold light of a brand new day
Would you wish it all away
In the cold light of a brand new day
Do you wish that you could stay
 
We’re going to the mountains
Where the air is thin
We’re going to the mountains
To a place I never been
 
Well you may as well start praying
For a heavenly reprieve
Cos you know that storm is coming
And it’s time to take your leave
You may as well start begging
Get down on your knees
There are a lot of prayers to answer
A lot of souls in need
 
We’re going to the mountains
Where the air is thin
We’re going to the mountains
To a place I never been
 
I was trying to pay a tribute
To the voices of the past
I was looking for permission
They said
You don’t have to ask
 
You’ve just gotta find a rhythm
We will tune in from afar
So I’m strumming out a mantra
On the strings of a guitar
 
We’re going to the mountains
Where the air is thin
We’re going to the mountains
To a place I never been
 
We’re going to the mountains
Where the air is thin
We’re going to the mountains
To a place I never been
 
 
 
The Pathway of Your Life
 
The pathway of your life
Like a stream
That never knows which way it’s winding
 
The gentle flow of your days
Like a leaf that’s blown
Who knows where it’s gonna land
 
Love will come and love will be gone
You’ll be right and you’ll be wrong
So many times are gonna come
When you’ll have to say goodbye
Goodbye
 
Will you find an honest love
Will it pass you by
Will you tell too many foolish lies
 
Will you play it safe
Take a chance
Watch from the crowd
Or join the dance
 
In the end the road you choose
Is mostly down to you
Ain’t that the truth
 
Every twist every turn
Every life lesson learned
All the times you get burned
Stood a little too close
 
To the warmth of the sun
The chase for the fun
Run a little too fast
You’re gonna crash
Yeah you’re gonna crash
 
Sure as night follows day
No matter what some might say
You’re gonna crash
Yeah you’re gonna crash
 
And you’ll be stuck in that hole
With no way of knowing
If you’ll ever get out
 
Yeah you’ll be stuck in that hole
Only one way to go
You gotta claw your way out
You gotta claw your way out
 
Yeah on you must strive
Through this perilous life
There wouldn’t be highs
Without all of them lows
All of them lows
 
But that don’t make it any easier
I suppose
But just so you know
 
On the pathway of your life
On the pathway of your life
On the pathway of your life
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BACK TO THE TOP
