Streetlights Glowing

Written By: Charlie Freeman

In and out
Up and down
Back and forth
At the mercy of these machines

Got some money
Got my motives
Closed my mind
Now I'm alright to stroll these streets

Where every night meets the night before
It's not so black & white anymore

All I see are streelights glowing
By now there should be morning sunshine showing
All I see are streetlights glowing
seems like there should be morning sunshine showing

Oh the things you tell yourself to keep on going

Killed the captain
Tossed the mate
Broke the wheel
Now I'm sailin' on a seasick cruise

I have to shout across the crowds to get the words out
But why, whats the use?

When the feeling only gets worse
You won't find the cure in your little brown purse

All I see are streetlights glowing
By now there should be morning sunshine showing
All I see are streelights glowings
Seems like there should be morning sunshine showing

Oh the things you tell yourself to keep on going

Streetlights Glowing

Got some money

Now I'm alright to stroll these streets

Where every night meets the night before
It's not so black & white anymore

All I see are streetlights glowing
By now there should be morning sunshine showing
All I see are streetlights glowing
seems like there should be morning sunshine showing

Oh the things you tell yourself
to keep on going

Killed the captain
Tossed the mate
Broke the wheel
Now I'm sailin' on a seasick cruise

I have to shout across the crowds
to get the words out
but why, what's the use?

When the feeling only gets worse
You won't find the cure
in your little brown purse

All I see are streetlights glowing
By now there should be morning sunshine showing
All I see are streelights glowing
Seems like there should be morning sunshine showing

Oh the things you tell yourself

A Choice

Written By: Charlie Freeman

I was given a choice
So I may regret
Why the wind carries no hint of your scent

You made our last dinner
Tried to close up the void
But I was given a choice
I was given a choice

I thought that I knew what to do
"Goodbye" was all I said to you
My father has taught me well
I guess

I was given a choice
What a thing to possess
Left to my own devices
a crisis will surely commence

I'd take a breath under water
I'd swallow the sea
If given the choice
To drown or be free

My feet know where
they ought to move
But I've worn out my walking shoes
And I can't let them decide for me

I was given a choice
Did I pass the test?
Did a lesson make itself
manifest?
