Lyrics

Prudhoe Bay

Written By: Casey Hatter

Never thought I’d be in New York City
You see I’m just an Alaska boy
And I remember looking out my bedroom window into the middle of an Almond Joy
I’d go out on the porch and hold a cabbage in my hand
To get the moose to come and eat
But after holding a subway rail I won’t put nothing in my mouth
And you never show no green on the street
Sometimes I wake up on another day
Searching for a break or two
But baby if you went to live in Prudhoe Bay
I might go with you
I never know what to say when things are over
I never think too much will be enough
And though I tried to soften all the things I told her
I’m afraid it all came out kind of rough
I said baby it’s a different time and place
Right now I’m keeping all my time for me
Back when you said it wasn’t right to be together
Might have been the only time that we could be
Sometimes I wake up on another day
Searching for a break or two
But baby if you went to live in Prudhoe Bay
I might go with you
So take me back to where I come from
Take me back to where I’m grown
I thought it’d be hard to be alone with all these people
I was half right
It’s hard to be alone
Sometimes I wake up on another day
Searching for a break or two
But baby if you went to live in Prudhoe Bay
I might go
I might go
I might go with you

Anyday

Written By: Casey Hatter

Give me a home where the places I’ve known will always have places for me
And if I must go I just want you to know that always in my heart you’ll be
With ten thousand words at my hands to describe the feelings I’m feeling today
They say there’s no time like the present but I’m not sure you’d have time anyway
So take me to someplace that I’ve never been
I’ll listen to you singing the blues
I’ll try to make what I say match what I mean
You can teach me to tie my own shoes
I can’t decide where I most want to be on the day my final bell rings
Maybe singing in showers or climbing a tree, but never suspecting a thing
So take me to someplace that I’ve never been
I’ll listen to you singing the blues
I’ll try to make what I say match what I mean
You can teach me to tie my own shoes
I’ll write you a song but I can’t give my word it will ever beat out the top ten
I’ll run any race, I’ll fight any fight, I only can’t promise I’ll win
I’d give you a ride on a hot air balloon if my lungs could produce enough air
And if I come up with a top forty tune I promise you’re in it somewhere
So take me to someplace that I’ve never been
I’ll listen to you singing the blues
I’ll try to make what I say match what I mean
You can teach me to tie my own shoes
Give me a home where the places I’ve known will always have places for me
And if I must go I just want you to know that always in my heart you’ll be
With ten thousand words at my hands to describe the feelings I’m feeling today
They say there’s no time like the present but I’d write a new song for you anyday

Peaches

Written By: Casey Hatter

Just another day, looking for someone to follow
Wish I knew the way someday bleeds into tomorrow
Ever a surprise, seeing light reflected in a pair of wandering eyes
Lights that you might never see again
If I had my way there would be no lost endeavors
If I had my way hope would last forever
If I had my way
Running out of time
Life goes by too fast to draw another frame of mind
Another day another dollar
Take me by the hand
Lead me to another little castle made of sand
One more wall to climb before I sleep
If I had my way hearts would not be quite so tender
If I had my way love would come return to sender
If I had my way
Every day I’m getting further from my home
Light my way so I won’t ever be alone
I could say all the people I have known
Come what may, you get attached to flesh and bone
Where do we belong
Find a decent occupation or just sit here writing songs
Live up to their expectations
Take a little time, think of all you take for granted
What you had in mind might not be just what you’d counted on
If I had my way dreams would never be forgotten
If I had my way peaches never would go rotten
If I had my way there would be a wish in every star
If I had my way almost there might not be quite so far
If I had my way

You Will

Written By: Casey Hatter

I’ve been here but will I be tomorrow
When I tell you I said hey, some day, some night
And you might see I needed what you borrowed
But another night is gone
And she turns to me
Turn out the light
And she says do you think that I might be there someday
With me you won’t but alone I think you will
With me you won’t but alone I’d say you will
If you would just stay here with me but still I’m standing on my own
Instead of wondering how life could be if you would never be alone
One more night to try to sleep but I don’t even know
Where you say you’d go with me
Come with me or could you stand tomorrow
When another night is gone away so fast
And you and me we need more than we borrow
But another night is gone
And she turns to me
Turn out the light
And she says do you think that I might be there someday
With me you won’t but alone I think you will
With me you won’t but alone I’d say you will
If you would just stay here with me but still I’m standing on my own
Instead of wondering how life could be if you would never be alone
One more night to try to sleep but I don’t even know
Where you say you’d go with me
