Lyrics

Caught On You

Written By: Dave Alpert

You told me you believe in god
And even though I thought it odd
I didn’t even say a word
You said god loves me more than you
And even though I don’t believe
I wonder if it’s true

I thought about you all night long
That’s why I wrote this song
About a sentimental journey to the corners of my mind
Where every kiss from gentle lips is frozen there in time
I’m caught on you.

You never like to rock the boat
Never like to feel the pain
Never like to look the same

That’s why I never feel alone
When I see your smile
I hope I’ll see you soon

I thought about you all night long
That’s why I wrote this song
About a sentimental journey to the corners of my mind
Where every kiss from gentle lips is frozen there in time
I’m caught on you.

You said I could be the only one
I said I sure dig your style
You said I can make you laugh like no one else
I could stay here for a while

I’m caught on you

Peace of Mind

Written By: Dave Alpert

Tell me something I don’t know
Take me someplace I don’t go
Don’t want to be responsible
Don’t want to be afraid
Just want to have some peace of mind
Eat and sleep and get paid

In the corner of my mind
Faded memories left behind
I don’t want to live for yesterday
The past is torn and frayed
Just want to have some peace of mind
Eat and sleep and get laid

Searching for a sign of life
Looking for my future wife
Don’t want to be tied down
To promises I made
Just want to have some peace of mind
Eat and sleep and get played

If I will it, it will be
I’ll bend the world across my knee
I will avoid the obstacles
There's nothing in my way
Just want to have some peace of mind
Eat and sleep and get dazed

And when the morning light has come
You will catch me playing dumb
I won’t remember anything
No matter what you say
Just want to have some peace of mind
Eat and sleep and get laid

Just want to have some peace of mind….

Hang On

Written By: Dave Alpert

Young couple looks so rock n roll
Walking down the street so cold
Looking for a point of light
To make it through the night
Could they make it if they tried
Or let the moment pass them by
So hard to walk away from love

Hang on

Looking tired and beaten down
From too much time just hanging round
Not so easy to forget
The things that we regret
A fragile flower in your day
Impossible to stay that way
Especially when word gets round
That things are looking down

Hang on

Are you disappointed baby?
Didn't even think that you were trying
Just thought that you were waiting to arrive

Now you find yourself without your friends
In a TV show that never ends
Still smoke pot, stay up all night
And think that it's all right
In a new suede coat and yellow shades
Smile until the feeling fades
Go on home and start again
You'll worry about it then

Hang on

Are you disappointed baby?
Didn't even think that you were trying
Just thought that you were waiting to arrive

Hang On
