Everwonder

Everwonder
By: Jimmy Bailey
2004

Did you ever wonder why Samson loved Delilah?
Or why King Arthur loved Guinevere?
Or what made Romeo loose his breath around Juliet?
Maybe that's the reason that I'm still here.
What ya think?

What made Cinderella walk around in those awful shoes?
Or made Rapunzel take such care of her hair?
Or what made Don Quixote chase around miss Dulcinea?
Low and behold you're still standing there.

(Chorus)
Hey. Hey. What you want? Where you wanna go?
Just pick a direction we'll head that way.
We'll pen our own legends of love, longing, and high adventure.
As long as were together everything’s O.K.

What made Oscar Hopkins risk it all for little Lucinda?
Or Jay Gatsby drop it all for Daisy?
Or did Rhett Butler give a damn about Scarlet O'Hara?
That's about how I feel when you're with me.

(Chorus)

Did you ever wonder why Samson loved Delilah?
Or why King Arthur loved Guinevere?
Or what made Romeo loose his breath around Juliet?
Maybe that's the reason that I'm still here.

(Chorus)

What ya think?

You'll Be Mine

You'll Be Mine
Jimmy Bailey
2004

Sun beats down on the back of my neck.
White top driving. Dust is flying out the back.
First time in ages I woke up with no regrets.
Heading to a rendezvous with you.

(Chorus)
I don't know your name.
I don't know your face.
But when I find you I know I'll win that race.
Now baby, just keep on searching and biding your sweet time.
Because sooner or later you'll be mine.

You might think that I'm the reckless kind.
I toss my heart about and do it with a smile.
I'm just looking for something I can't find.
Heading to a rendezvous with you.

(Chorus)

Too much time wasted sitting at the bar.
Blowing all my lines on beatup damaged hearts.
Around in circles on a carousel of starts.
Heading to a rendezvous with you.

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

You'll be mine.
One more time.
You'll be mine.

Set List

Set list varies. It is not difficult to fill 2+ hours of just original material. The covers that we do are usually very obscure or modified.
