Lyrics

Everyday People

Written By: Dylan Cash

Everyday People

We’re just everyday people,
Walkin on the same streets
Soakin up the same sunshine

Breathe the same air
Grow long hair
Drive-in movies on a Friday night

Waves on the beach
Love in the air
BBQ weekends, breakfast in bed

Make love to me on a Saturday night
Your kisses make everything alright

Chorus:
Walk with me , hold my hand
You make me a happy man.

Bridge:
We’re just everyday people
Wet feet in the sand
Everyday people
Makin our way the best we can.

Just everyday people
Summer thru Spring
Listen to the same Robin sing.

Were ever you go, whatever you say
Time after time it’s the same old same.

School yard swings, Lemonade stands
Summertime love , holdin hands.

Ride a two seater bike on a country road
Sippin latte’s down at Café Joes.

Chorus:

Country People

Written By: Dylan Cash

Country People

Im livin on country time
Hangin out on the front porch waitin for a sign
Sittin down by the creek on a rainy day
Not a worry in the world, & I’d like to say that

Chorus
My friends are country people , they drive tractors & trucks
You can rely on country people, to say he-ll-o
& wish u good luck

Workin out on the fields all day

Soakin up the sun lyin in the hay, Cool
Breeze on my face, feet on the ground
Everywhere I look happiness abounds

Out here I’m livin the good li –fe

Food on my table most of the time
Hat on my head, shoes on my feet
I say to myself what more could I need

Chourus:

Solo:

Songs blastin on my truck radio

As I cruise on down this old dirt road

See my neighbour Jim tryin to mend his fence
He’s had that old yellow dog since I don’t know when

Bugs on the windshield , dust in my face
Couldn’t ask for a better place
Stars everynight big harvest moon
Guess I’m movin to the city, no time soon

Chorus:

Whistle

Chorus: 2x’s

End

Life is amazing

Written By: Dylan Cash

Life is Amazing

Every blade of grass, Child that laughs,

A grain of sand, every can’t that can, it’s Amazing

Every movement in the universe,

Winds that blow & a heart that hurts,

It’s Amazing.

Every cloud that flies in a clear blue sky,

The breath you take & the love you make

It’s Amazing.

The earth gives birth to a new day while

Wars take sacred life away,

It’s Amazing.

The pious man prays,

The poor man lives for another day,

Bless the child that finds the way &

Leads us through the pain we make (stop)

It’s Amazing, It’s Amazing It’s Amazing, It’s Amazing.

Live this life like a Star burnin bright

Shine on children all of the time

Compassion speaks soft & sweet

Open your heart & you will see

It’s amazing, It’s Amazing, It’s Amazing, It’s Amazing

Every smile that cries, Truth that lies

Heart that beats for someone you meet

It’s Amazing.

Mountains high, Oceans wide

Souls connect, for the love inside

It’s Amazing.

Clear your eyes, don’t be denied

Fight the truth of an unfinished life

It’s amazing.

Faces change, underneath we’re the same

Kill for religion, all in the name

It’s Amazing.
