Salt In My Coffee

I'm not gonna pour salt in my coffee
not gonna sprinkle sugar on my steak
Yes, I'm gonna savor every one of these flavors
gonna embrace all that's on my plate

But with her I stumble down again
playing some clown
And I don't wanna, don't wanna be down now

All of the shadows that were clouding my thinking
putting my attention on my weakened state
If love is letting go, I finally surrender
Now every moment is a fresh clean slate

But with her I stumble down again
playing some clown
And I don't wanna, don't wanna be down now,
don't wanna be down now

Free to be your witness
windblown on a mountain peak
letting our song take wing

All that I learned about the law of attraction
we're gonna find just what we seek
So tire of thinking "can't get no satisfaction"
and no more questions if the hill's too steep

But with her I stumble down again
playing some clown
And I don't wanna, don't wanna be, no I don't wanna, don't wanna be
Don't wanna be down now, don't wanna be down now

Tethered

©2010 Kim De Meo, Larry Saklad

Listenin to the voice inside that whispers in our ear
Tryin to decipher what is not crystal clear
Questioning the voice inside that whispers in our head
Asking for direction, can not assume my way instead

Tethered together here in the quagmire
lifting each other
Tethered together, what will inspire us to
lift each other out of this quicksand?

The asking of these questions: what is false and true
All of us are yearning for all those answers too
Extend your hand to me my friend, is all we have to do
The lessons we are learning here, I realize in you

[chorus, verse- music]
I'd gladly shed your fears for you, if we only could
but both of us laughin with the voice inside, reminds us things are good

'cause we're...
[chorus 1.5x]
...Tethered together, what will inspire us to keep
lifting each other out of this quicksand? Tethered

Just In Case

3} Just In Case
©2010 Kim De Meo, Larry Saklad

Baby, just in case you got the wrong impression
Looking for some sign that I'll change my mind, just in case

I don't have time, always the same question
Walking that line of love and hate, baby, just in case

What did you hide while I stould beside you
How was your soul denied, you're lost deep inside, without a trace

I finally found my voice
all buried and dusty
You know you give me no choice
It's time for letting go

Why did you lie as I lay down beside you
I looked in your eye, your lost so deep inside, without a trace

I finally...
...for letting go

Baby, just in case, you got the wrong impression
Looking for some sign that I might change my mind, just in case
Just in case, just in case
aw, baby

Why This Full Moon

Written By: Larry Saklad

4} Why This Full Moon
©2010 Larry Saklad, Mike K co-produced

Why this full moon fills us with wonder
melts our cares like distant thunder
How your voice so deeply is calling
the stirring of spring, the coming of morning
What the dawn brings is surely warming

When our senses reach for the horizon
Open minds to each moment arriving
Where we meet is within our connection
Who ever we see reveals always your reflection
It makes me smile to feel such affection

and know we’ll never let go again
oh no, to never let go your hand

How this fresh breeze can carry your fragrance
the weightless dance of carefree maidens
the uncanny way you know what I’m thinking
Join with me now and what love is bringing
let our guard down and trust in love lingering

and know we’ll never let go again
oh no, to never let go your hand

Why this full moon fills us with wonder

All Of A Sudden

Written By: ©Larry Saklad

All Of A Sudden ©2014 Saklad http://saklad.bandcamp.com ~ Blues-rock romp rooted in boogie-woogie ala Leon Russell + B3 organ! About the moment each of us recognizes something’s changed in a relationship- you have to see them ASAP!

Going 'bout my day in work and in play, I'm doin' ok
Day turns to night, still doin' alright

[chorus]
Then all of a sudden I needed to see her
I started to need her much more,
All of a sudden my heart opened wider
I'm deeper inside her than before

Callin' out her name, doesn't sound the same,
echoes round my brain
I can heal you & know you feel it too

[chorus 2x]
Out for a drive, feelin' all alive
with that smile inside
Then I look again, I'm wearing a big grin

[1/2 chorus] music
And all of you here, remember the cheer
when you knew they were dear
You couldn't walk away & neither could they!

When all of a sudden you needed to see them
You started to need them much more
& All of a sudden your heart opened widened
You're deeper inside them than before
[chorus]
