The Light in your Eyes

 

I see the light in your eyes

It brightens up my darkened skies

You’re like a nude sunrise

I love the light in your eyes

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love the light in your eyes

It shines right through my dark disguise

And it makes me realize

That there’s a truth behind my lies

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love the light in your eyes………..

{Featuring Erin Accomando on vocals}

I see the light in your eyes

It shines so bright I’m hypnotized

And it helps me realize

That there’s no reason not to try

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love that light in your eyes

It shines so bright, so strong and wise

It makes me realize

That there’s no need for my disguise

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

Spanish Translation:  

It was a day like any other day.  I was doing my chores.  Not really thinking about anything.  I had to do this and that and the other thing.  There is always so much to do and so little time to do it.  So I packed up my clothes and headed to the Laundry mat.

I went in the laundry mat, and as I opened the door I saw a light.  There in the corner was a woman so beautiful that she almost blinded me.  When my bright blue eyes met her beautiful ebony eyes… sparks flew.  And my world never was the same.

No Es Mi Cisne

No es mi cisne

Muerta  en la calle.

Pisada por el trafico.

No es mía, es otra.

Mi musa aun vive.

Esas manchas de sangre,

Ya negras de tanto humo de carro,

Esa disorden de flechas que

Ni reflejan la belleza que fue

No son de ella.

 

La paso diario en mis labores

Y cada día hay menos de ella.

Hasta rostros no van a estar

Ni prueba que existió.

Pero no es mia

Yo se

Por que anoche

Me visitó

CALLING UP TO HEAVEN

Hello… hello hello.

I’m calling up to heaven

Just to say hello

 

Hello…hello hello.

I miss you

Like you’ll never know.

 

I’ve got a new phone and it has a special ap.

They say I can call you anywhere you’re at

So I’m calling up to heaven just to talk to you

One more time.

 

I found your number with your old things

So I’m giving it a call just to see if it rings

And maybe you’ll answer and tell me that

You’re doing fine

 

Hello… hello hello.

I’m calling up to heaven

Just to say hello

 

Hello…hello hello.

I miss you

Like you’ll never know.

YOU

 

The sun rises in the morning

And it rises for you.

A flower blooms in a field

And it blooms for you.

Mountains tremble and shake,

Deserts turn into lakes,

Seas become rough and violent,

And thunder is suddenly silent.

And it’s all for you…

Its all for you…

Because you are everything that there is to me.

You are everything that there is to me.

 

If a heart that once was cold

Burried in a body  that’s growing old

Forgets about its pain and sin,

To warm and love again

It’s because of you.

If the touch of your skin makes a fire ignite

And in my darkness your eyes shine light

Giving color to everything that’s blue

This is all my love and it’s all for you

Yes it’s all for you

Yes it’s all for you.

Because you are everything that there is to me

You are everything that there is to me

 

NO ONE KNOWS

No one knows what they’ve got until it’s gone

No one knows what’s right until they’ve done wrong

No one knows what’s true, until they’ve lied

No one knows how  to live, until they’ve died

 

But girl I know this is true…..

Baby I need you  (repeat)

 

No one’s happy until they’ve been sad

No one’s sane until they’ve gone mad

No one knows if they’re smart until they’ve said something dumb

No one knows how to feel until they’ve felt numb

 

But girl I know this is true….

Baby I need  you (repeat)

 

No one’s got what they want

No one wants what they need

Everyone wants to be loved

And everyone wants to be free

 

But girl I know this is true….

Baby I need  you (repeat)

 

I need you baby…

It’s not a question of desire

It’s a matter of necessity.

 

I need you…

 

Like a man needs to eat

Like a man needs to sleep.

Like a man needs to…  Breath.

 

I need you…

 

Like the sun needs to shine

Like a dog needs its master

Like a bee needs honey

 

I need you…

 

Like a bolt needs a nut

Like a screw needs a driver

Down By the River (Missed the Crossroads)   

 

 

Down by the river

I met an angel so fine

I played her my songs

And dreamed that  she was mine

 

Down by the river

Where I played long before

That Angel smiled

And my faith was restored.

 

I played her some songs and she asked for more

 

Down by the river

On a hot august day

I liked the way she looked

and she liked the way I played

 

I sang songs about her beauty

And the color of her clothes

About long flowing hair

and cute little toes

 

Now I could live, I’d been dead for so long.

So many years, not one little song..

BIG TIME

 

Big time loser…Acting like he lost something he never had.

Big time boozer…He’s acting happy when really he’s sad.

Big time lover…it’s been a long time since he’s been laid.

Big time spender…spends all of his time trying to get paid.

 

But big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone… big times… never last long.

Little sally Johnson

lived up in Wisconsin,

But she never really liked the snow,

So she packed up for Hollywood,

She thought she’d be doing good

If she could land a role in the show.

But she got rejected,

And it came so unexpected

That she took off for parts unknown

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone…’ big times… never last long.

 

And then there’s Timmy tough guy,

He walked away with a black eye..

He didn’t make it into round two

But he showed up on that night

And he put up his best fight,

That’s more than most men ever do.

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone… big times… never last long.

 

And poor Bobby Jones

He’s all skin and bones

Trying to sell his artwork at the fair.

But no one was buying

So he just quit trying,

and focused on braiding his daughter’s hair

 

 

Big times can be bad times when you find yourself alone…’cause big times never last long.

big times…never last long.

big times …

never last long.

ONE MORE KISS

/audio]

 

I watch the lights fade as you leave the room

One foot already in the tomb

I hold your hand as you say goodbye

As I wipe off a tear from your eye

 

I know I’ll never see you again                         Snapshot 1 (2-5-2017 2-09 AM)

And never get to stroke your hair

I’ll never look into those eyes

And tell you how much I care

 

So let me ask one favor please

One more kiss before you leave

I don’t care if it’s right or it’s wrong

One more kiss before you’re gone

 

You’re just as pretty as the day we met,

The day I fell in love.

I’ll treasure every moment we have spent

As gifts from the lord up above

 

I promised to care for our baby girl

And I promised I’d never love again

So let me ask something before leave

Because I’ll never get the chance again…

 

So let me ask one more favor please

 One more kiss before you leave

I don’t care if its right or it’s wrong

One more kiss before you’re gone.

 

They’re looking at me like I’m a freak

A stranger from a strange land

I’m crying so hard I can hardly speak

And I can’t let go of your hand

 

The lights are all out and the pain is through,

All I want is our baby girl

She’s all that I have left of you

And that girl’s  going to be my world

 

So let me ask one more favor please

One more kiss before you leave

I don’t care if it’s right or it’s wrong

 

Just one more kiss before you’re gone
