Fast Forward Reverse

 

Pedestrian

I saw you last night

alone in your car

it wasn't quite right

your headlights were out

 

I woke up today

I had to find out

if all was OK

but your phone line was out

 

If you don't come quickly

If you don't come to

I'll be gone

 

I walked to the square

I called out your name

they said you were dead

and we were to blame

 

If you don't come quickly

If you don't come to

I'll be gone

 

I saw you today

alone in your room

it wasn't OK

your headlights were out

 

Golden Gate

Reach high Golden Gate

touch the clouds Golden Gate

drive up to the sky

 

Red arms breach the miles

bring me to the golden smiles

of my girl

see her smile

see her soar

 

Drive

so high

up to the sky

 

lala la la la la la la

 

Reach high Golden Gate

touch the clouds Golden Gate

drive up to the sky

 

Drive

so high

up to the sky

 

lala la la la la la la

 

Ticket to Wyoming

Bought a ticket to Wyoming

tossed another life away

Left, and a lotta things I didn't get to say

 

I know your daddy didn't like me

he said I wasn't up to any good

so I high-tailed it to Wyoming 'cause I could

 

'Cause out here the air is very clear

and the mornin' dew will see you through the day.

A sky so wide you can leave your past behind

and lose yourself, and even change your name.

 

Bought another ticket to Wyoming

That's sorta what this letter's all about.

Bought it hopin' you'd consider movin' out

 

And so, I'll meet you at the station

when your train rolls into town

just make sure that you're a-wearing

your wedding gown.

 

Sunshower

Roof top and I can't stop

the rhythm of the raindrops

that mingle with my tears.

Orange glow, the radio

reminds me you're not here, and I'm aware

and now I'm reminiscing

all the things we shared

staring at the leaves, talking to the trees

all of these, especially sunshowers.

 

Blue Jean is striking off

the checklists from the magizines

that clutter up her room.

"Can you spot the warning signs

of boredom letting itself in your life?"

Well, can you tell?

Is it something that I said or do I smell?

Maybe I can change

Maybe I'm insane

Baby, I just need a sweet...

 

I shuffle down the sidewalk in the afternoon

on Monday afternoon.

whistlin' while I walk away,

I look up to the sky and wonder why

the clouds have gathered seem to say goodbye.

Adios, my friend

Bon Voyage again

Arrivederci, everyone

Sunshower

 

The Northern Jetstream

 

Golden Girl

Speak to me, My Golden Girl

Float to me, My Golden Girl

Wait for me, under the stars

Float to me, under the stars

As a brand new moon

 

Speak me, My gentle one

Wait for me, My beautiful one

Under grateful eyes

Under the watchful, grateful eyes

Under the new moon

Under the new moon

 

But then,

you might like it better on your own

And then,

you might like it better on your own

 

Wait for me, My Golden Girl

Float to me, My Golden Girl

Under the grateful, watching eyes

Under these grateful, watching eyes

Under the new moon

As the new moon falls

 

But then,

you might like it better on your own

And then,

you might like it better on your own

 

Speak to me, My Golden Girl

Float to me, My Golden Girl

As the brand new moon

As the brand new moon

As the brand new moon

Can’t Let Go (Schelzel)

 

You know that I would,

If baby I could

You know that I would,

If baby I could

Let go

 

You know that I start,

But then I think twice

You know that I start,

But then I think twice

 

And I can’t let go

No, I can’t let go

 

Can’t let go

 

Take a Broken Heart

They say men are such fools

And a woman must forgive them

I know I was wrong, forgive me

Won't you give me one more chance?

 

Take a broken heart

Make a broken heart smile again

I'm in love with you

 

Say you love me too, and take my arms

Take my lips, take my tears away and love me

Come back to my arms

Believe me, if you leave me I will die

 

Take a broken heart

Make a broken heart smile again

I'm in love with you

 

Say you love me too, sweetheart

Come back to my arms

Believe me, if you leave me I will die

 

Take a broken heart

Make a broken heart smile again

I'm in love with you

Say you love me too, sweetheart
