Lyrics

Get What You Can

Written By: Edward J Blaker III

Verse 1
It's been almost a year since I heard from you baby
That's something I never dreamed true
I still hold a torch and it's making me crazy

Chorus 1
Now I know, that you can't see
Just exactly what you did to me
Love and heartache went hand-in-hand
'Cause you set out to "Get What You Can"

Verse 2
We were so in love, that we devised a wedding plan
But now it's in the past and I will never understand
How it happened all so fast then seemed to end 'fore it began

BRIDGE
Well I'm in state of being
But, I'm lost without a trace
'Cause a man lives in his mind, you see…
Not simply in a place!

Verse 3
Now the world can be a cruel place it's so sad, but it's true
I'm caught up in the rat race, every day it's something new
My most sincere emotions are lost or misconstrued

Chorus 2
I'm so sure, they'll never see
Just exactly what it does to me
Love and heartache go hand-in-hand
When they set out to get what they can

Verse 4
I'm wishing that someday and hoping that it's near
You'll come to understand, my love the way I truly feel
It's never been this strong before it never felt so REAL

- SOLO -

Verse 5
Now I wrote this song in a state of confusion
I'm sure this is perfectly clear
I feel that my life is a total illusion

Chorus 3
It's no wonder that I feel this way
'Cause my life goes through changes every day
And love and heartache go hand-in-hand
When you set out to "Get What You Can"

I Can't Wait

Written By: Edward J Blaker III

Verse 1
So many times I tried explaining just how I feel.
But, I know that inside your head it’s really no big deal.
It’s plain to see that what we had then wasn’t very strong
I should have listened to my friends; they all said it was wrong

Chorus 1
I can’t wait ‘til I forget all about you!
I still have not accepted that you left me alone.
I start to dial your number when I pick up the phone.

Verse 2
I walk the streets and wonder how it lasted so long
I feel like I’ve been stepped on by Godzilla and King Kong
Deserted by a woman for no reason and no rhyme
How could she have led me on for such a length of time?

Chorus 2
I can’t wait ‘til I forget all about you!
I don’t want to have this lousy feelin’ no more
I sit around and wait for you to knock on my door!

SOLO

Verse 3
Well just the other night I was out with a girl
And of all the other joints you could have been in the world!
There you were, you sneered like you were jealous of me.
Now you told me you don’t love me, so why not let me be?!?!

Chorus 3
And I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
It’s not that I don’t love you, don’t gimme no slack
I’m gonna give my lovin’ to someone who’ll give it back!

Repeat Chorus to End
And I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
It’s plain to see that what we had then wasn’t very strong
I should have listened to my friends; they all said it was wrong!

And I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
I still have not accepted that you left me alone.
I start to dial your number when I pick up the phone.

And I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
How could that witchy woman lead me on for so long?
I feel like I’ve been stepped on by Godzilla and King Kong

I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
I don’t want to have this lousy feelin’ no more
I sit around and wait for you to knock on my door!
I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
There you were, you sneered like you were jealous of me.
Now you told me you don’t love me, so why not let me be?!?!

I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
It’s not that I don’t love you, don’t gimme no slack
I’m gonna give my lovin’ to someone who’ll give it back, back, back, back!

I can’t wait, ‘til I forget all about you!
A woo-hoo-hoo-hooooo!
Ahhhhhhhhhh, Ahhhhhhhhhhh
Ho-ho-ho ha-ha!

Ooooh Doo wap doo wadduh
Ooh hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo
Oooh doo-wap doo-wadduh
Aah ha-ha ha-ha-ha-ha!

Ocean Breaking

Written By: Dara Turetsky

Verse 1
My mind falls apart like the Ocean Breaking when I see you.
I fall victim to the waves in the sea.
I fall apart like the Ocean Breaking when I'm near you.
The tide keeps pulling you closer to me.

Chorus 1
Give me shelter, give me shelter on the long road.
The storm is rolling further out to sea.
Give me shelter, give me shelter, I have no control.
I drift with the current hopelessly.

Verse 2
The sandy beaches littered with those promisses you broke.
Washed up on the shores of my dreams.
You said you heard beautiful poetry when I spoke.
All I heard are the sounds of my screams.

Chorus 2
Give me shelter, give me shelter on the long road.
The storm is rolling further out to sea.
Give me shelter, give me shelter, I have no control.
I drift with the current hopelessly.

SOLO

Chorus 3
Give me shelter, give me shelter on the long road.
The storm is rolling further out to sea.
Give me shelter, give me shelter, I have no control.
I drift with the current hopelessly.

I Know

Written By: Dara Turetsky

Verse 1
As time goes by and you're near me.
I go to speak, you don't hear me.
We've been together for a long time now.
And I know.

Verse 2
We're walking on the beach, hand in hand.
The sun is setting, coloring the sand.
You hold me close, and the feeling is grand.
Cause I know.
Yes I know.
You're every move when I feel.

Chorus 1
Your certain moves, when you're dancing.
Your certain touch, when romancing.
And I know in your thoughts what you're gonna say.
And I know the games you play.

Verse 3
Like all the world, we've been rich and poor.
Because of these changes, our love learned to endure.
I love you more, than I did before.
Cause I know.
Yes I know.
Your every move when I feel.

Chorus 2
Your certain moves, when you�re dancing.
Your certain touch, when romancing.
And I know in your thoughts what you're gonna say.
And I know the games you play.

SOLO

Verse 4
The years have passed, you're still by my side.
You know all my secrets, I've got nothing to hide.
My soul to yours always will be tied.
Cause I know.
Yes I know.
Your every move when I feel.

Chorus 3
Your certain moves, when you're dancing.
Your certain touch, when romancing.
And I know in your thoughts what you're gonna say.
And I know the games you play.

Repeat then fade...

All Alone

Written By: E. Blaker & D. Turetsky

Verse 1
All alone, I try to be there when I can
Far from home, I never see my man
Well I make my livin’ being on the road
And the few hours spent together is enough to plainly see I’m
“All Alone”…

Verse 2
All alone, I didn’t notice any more
The sweet affection that I always used to feel before
All alone, there in your smilin’ face
Should have read it in your lyin’ eyes
And put you in your place there “All Alone”…

CHO 1
All Alone
I stare outside the window
Feeling cold by the evening fire
Shattered dreams I fall into the past
Should have known right from the start
It wasn’t meant to last

Verse 3
All alone, I make you feel so insecure
All I wanted was your love and now I’m not so sure
All alone, but I have got my pride
And now I realize that what you’ve done
Has forced me to continue on my own

CHO 2
All Alone
I stare outside the window
Feeling cold by the evening fire
Shattered dreams I fall into the past
Should have known right from the start
It wasn’t meant to last
All Alone
I’m starin’ out the window
Feeling cold by the aging fire
Shattered dreams you gave them up too fast
But, I can’t say that my momma didn’t say
I would be back, All Alone…

BRIDGE
All alone, all alone, all alone

Verse 4
All alone, I never felt like this before
A heart that‘s empty always makes a rich man poor
All alone, after all that’s said and done
I know you’ve had your fun and that is why I up-and-left you
All Alone!

All Alone, All Alone, All Alone, All Alone, All Alone, All Alone
All Alone

PLEASE

Written By: E. Blaker & D. Turetsky

CHO 1
Please, poppa please
I’m still your baby girl, you see
That used to sit up on your knee
Please, momma please
I wanna come back to your lovin’ arms
You gotta realize I meant no harm

Verse 1
The dark of night’s my only friend
All because I had to defend my pride
Now I hang my head in shame
‘Cause I ain’t got no one else to blame
I ran from home to clear my head
But one more day and I’ll be dead
I thought by now I’d have it all
I didn’t wanna end up a common call girl

CHO 2
Please, poppa please
The time has come I just can’t take it
I thought for sure by now I’d make it
Please, momma please
I didn’t wanna hear your tired old song
But you’re gonna hear me tell you that I was wrong

Verse 2
It’s not like I could pick and choose
So I got a short skirt and stiletto shoes
It pays for the next meal I eat
In a Diner where I’m duckin’ from the heat
I thought about what we once had
I used to think that things were bad
My life just felt so incomplete
But, it’s better than livin’ on the street

CHO 3
Please, poppa please
I know I acted like a fool
And I know you wanna see me back in school
Please, momma please
I had to up-and make this call
To see if any bit of love is left at all for me

BRIDGE
For me
Please, please

SOLO

Verse 3
I should have known right from the start
The steet’s alive, ain’t got no heart
Cannot earn an honest pay
I know I just can’t make my way
I’m hangin’ up the telephone
To Catch a Greyhound bus for home
It’s time to start my life again
All I had to do was ask them

CHO 4
Please, poppa please
I’m still your baby girl, you see
That used to sit up on your knee
Please, momma please
I wanna come back to your lovin’ arms
You gotta realize I meant no harm
Please, poppa please
The time has come I just can’t take it
I thought for sure by now I’d make it
Please, momma please
I didn’t wanna hear your tired old song
But you’re gonna hear me tell you that I was wrong

Condemned To Feel Blue

Written By: Edward J Blaker III

Verse 1
Don’t take your love away from me
Please open up your heart to romance
I’ll go about it so carefully
To make your feelings flourish and dance
I’ve done some foolish things in the past
But let me show you just how I’ve changed
And I promise not to push you too fast
My life I know must be rearranged

CHO 1
‘Cause, I love you
And I need to know that you love me too
My entire life revolves around you
So, why am I Condemned To Feel Blue?

Verse 2
After all the things we’ve been through
How could you say that this is the end?
And the reason I’m Condemned To Feel Blue
Is, ‘cause now you want us just to be friends
How could you think I’d settle for this?
You know that I have always been true
I’m starving for the love in your kiss
And I couldn’t start with anyone new!

CHO 2
‘Cause, I love you
And I need to know that you love me too
My entire life revolves around you
So, why am I Condemned To Feel Blue?

SOLO

Verse 3
With the hours growing longer each day
I’ve really no Idea How I’ll last
Through this ordeal feeling this way
I wish we could return to the past
Do you think you’ll soon come to agree?
That we belong together until the end
Well it’s up to you, I’m sure that you’ll see
That from now until forever I’ll send

LAST CHO (x2)
My love to you
And you’ve got to say that you love me too
My entire life revolves around you
So, why am I Condemned To Feel Blue?

Raised On Honor

Written By: Acoustik Solution

V1
Mr. Dynamite, he was a fighter and his heart stayed with, his family.
Growing up in a town where one ideal was passed down
The most important thing, is loyalty.
When he made a promise to his loving father life would never be the same,
He knew this wasn’t just a game,
But the die had been cast.

Cho.
All he had was his sense of pride
And there was nothing there to hide.
But the eyes can’t know what to see,
Until the truth is set free.

V2
His passion was his dedication to his job, he did, the best he could.
He lived from his heart, he did it right from the start
when he did the work nobody would.
Resented by all he was set up for a fall by the old men in blue,
Their real colors shining through.
He was alone in a crowd.

Cho.
All he had was his sense of pride
And there was nothing there to hide.
But the eyes can’t know what to see,
Until the truth is set free.

Bridge (male solo)
Oh dear father can you hear me.
I tried, but now I beg of you to let go of me.
I see your face when I look at mine,
But all I need is a little more time to
Decide what’s the best life for me.

Cho.
All he had was his sense of pride
And there was nothing there to hide.
But the eyes can’t know what to see,
Until the truth is set free.

V3
Mr. Dynamite he wanted so much to be
Admired like the men in his family.
When he made a promise to his loving father life would never be the same
He knew this wasn’t just a game.

Guitar solo

Cho.
All he had was his sense of pride
And there was nothing there to hide
but the eyes can’t know what to see.
