FOLK HEROES FROM SPACE

BandRockJam

Our music is fresh and yet timeless, blending genres from rock to jazz to funk and reggae or even bluegrass and gospel creating a new and at the same time classic sound. More than just music WE ARE A PARTY!!

Biography

It is a little known fact that rock and roll music originated in a not so distant galaxy and was brought to your planet AND GIVEN to some of the legendary greats .
This Galaxy is also the home of the FOLK HEROES FROM SPACE and it was there that they first met and honed their musical skills and eventually won the trip of a lifetime in honor of their achievements. The plan was to come to earth and visit the Rock 'n' Roll hall of fame and do a world tour visiting each and every Hard Rock Cafe on the planet.
As It happens however the ship broke up after entry and we are now stranded on earth until we can raise enough money ($12,000,000,000.00) to make repairs and head home.
We hope you like our music and buy multiple copies of our C.D. "GET ON THE BUS" , this would be a great help and much appreciated. We also promise to make a second C.D. with some of the proceeds.
ENJOY and we hope to see you on tour!
Thank you,
Capitaan mO mO VelCroChin.

Lyrics

GET ON THE BUS

Written By: FHFS

IN YOUR MIND IF YOU'VE GOT THE TIME
YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF A MELLOW RHYME
WHEN THE WORDS BEGIN TO FLOW
YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF AN OPEN DOOR

WALK A LITTLE TALK A LITTLE
LISTEN TO US
WE'VE BEEN WALKING FOR DAYS NOW
LOOK A LITTLE SEE ALOT
GET ON THE BUS
WE'VE BEEN RIDING FOR DAYS NOW

I GUESS I MADE MYSELF THIS WAY
I CAN MAKE MYSELF AGAIN
I CAN NOT REALLY TELL YOU HOW
ONLY THAT IT HAPPENS NOW

WALK A LITTLE...

I HAVE DONE THE TRIP AROUND
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I'VE FOUND
EVERYWHERE IT'S ALL THE SAME
A DIFFERENT PLACE ANOTHER NAME
MORE OF THIS OR LESS OF THAT
DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE AT
EVERYBODY WANTS THE SAME
TO WAKE UP TO A BRAND NEW DAY

WALK A LITTLE...

COME ON NOW GET ON THE BUS
COME ON NOW COME RIDE WITH US...

WHITE HORSES

Written By: FHFS

Late night dreams, saw you standing there, at the bottom of a hillside
bathed in moonlight
Suddenly, I heard the lightning crash and I saw a wave of thunder
cascading through the trees

Oh, but then you turned
walked slowly up the hill
I was frozen where I stood
and everything went still
Silently you looked into my eyes
and I saw

One thousand white horses
riding on the wind
In my mind, your voice is
the beginning and the end
I believe, 'cause I've seen
a thousand white horses
a thousand white horses

In these dreams, the way you looked at me, the way your hair slipped down,
into pieces of the sky
Makes me think, if there's just one thing that I could every ask for,
it's already been given to me

Oh, when you arrived
and you didn't say a word
You sat down on my left,
and the only sound I heard
was the beating of the drums out in the distance
and I saw

One thousand white horses
riding on the wind
In my mind, your voice is
the beginning and the end
I believe, 'cause I've seen
a thousand white horses
a thousand white horses

One thousand white horses
riding on the wind
In my mind, your voice is
the beginning and the end
I believe, 'cause I've seen
a thousand white horses
a thousand white horses (ad lib and fade to end)

BLUE RIVER

Written By: FHFS

(drum intro four bars, guitar intro – four progressions (8 bars))
LET ME KNOW IF YOU FIND AN ANSWER TO JUSTIFY YOUR THOUGHTS
IN THE MORNING, WILL YOU REMEMBER, OR WILL EVERYTHING BE LOST?

(break- one progression)

EVERYONE CAN SEE THE WAY YOUR EYES BURN INTO MY SOUL
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'LL FING THERE? WOULD I FIT INTO THAT MOLD?

DA YA DA...

YOU SAY THAT ONE DAY YOU MIGHT TAKE ME OUT TO THE WESTERN COAST
BUT I DON'T WANNA BE JUST ANOTHER NOTCH CARVED INTO YOUR POST

I MUST BE FLOATING INSIDE AN UNBELIEVABLE DREAM
I CANNOT COMPREHEND IT, WHAT CAN THIS PRESENT MEAN?

DA YA DA...

(break – two progressions)

IT WOULD KILL ME IF I HURT YOU, I LOVE YOU, BUT NOT LIKE THAT
SO IN AMONGST OUR TWISTED TANGO, I HAVE TO TELL YOU JUST WHERE I'M AT

I'M GRATEFUL FOR OUR FRIENDSHIP AND I APPOLOGISE IF I LET YOU DOWN AND I DIDN'T MEAN TO SEND CONFLICTING SIGNALS, BUT I JUST WANT TO KEEP YOU AROUND

DA YA DA...

(break – two progressions)

THINK BACK, THE NIGHT THAT WE MET, MY HEAD WAS IN THE SAND
YOUR WORDS, AND I WAS SET FREE, THAT'S WHY I TRY MY HAND

AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE TO ME
YOU MAKE ME REALIZE THERE'S SO MUCH THAT I COULD BE

AND I'M GRATEFUL FOR OUR FRIENDSHIP AND I APPOLOGISE IF I LET YOU DOWN AND I DIDN'T MEAN TO SEND CONFLICTING SIGNALS, BUT I JUST WANT TO KEEP YOU AROUND

DA YA DA

DA YA DA

FIREFLIES

Written By: FHFS

Fireflies
capo 3rd

G- City lights pour in the window, on this so-called quiet street
C- The engines and the car horns disrupt attempts at sleep
G- Dirty roads and dirty buildings, 'round the corner, down the block
F-C-G- hey, hey ah haa

Greedy hands are always reachin' for that filthy dollar bill
and the devil's always lurkin' right beneath your windowsill
This whole world in which we live in tells us morals have no worth
hey, hey, I'll hide

C- So I'm, going dancin' G-with the fireflies
C- fallin' in love, G- under starry skies
C- Pines lend their G -sweet scent to paradise
hey, hey, I'll hide

Em- Chains ties to Am- generosi Em- ty,
they'd be Em- awfully glad to Am- help you but it Em- won't come for Am- free, no
Em- it don't for Am- free, no
Em- it don't for Am- free, no
Em- and that's not for Am- me
F-C-G- hey, hey, I'll hide

So I'm, going dancin' with the fireflies
fallin' in love, under starry skies
Pines lend their sweet scent to paradise
hey, hey, I'll hide

The sunlight shines like diamonds and the moment seems to freeze
The sound of crickets singin' in the gentle summer breeze
There's beauty in the sunrise, there's beauty in the rain
hey, hey, I'll hide

So I'm, going dancin' with the fireflies
fallin' in love, under starry skies
Pines lend their sweet scent to paradise
hey, hey, I'll hide

So I'm, going dancin' with the fireflies
fallin' in love, under starry skies
Pines lend their sweet scent to paradise
hey, hey, I'll hide
hey, hey, I'll hide
hey, hey I'll hide

TELL ME

Written By: FHFS

LIFE IS SIMPLY TOO SHORT
FOR SADNESS
YOU NEED TO FIND YOUR SPIRIT
FEARLESS

HOLD THOSE THINGS DEEP IN YOUR SOUL
OH OH OH OH OH
TURN YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS TO GOLD

TURNING PAGES IN YOUR
LIFE
DO YOU THINK YOU'VE SACRI-
FICED?

LOSIN' GRIP ON WHAT YOU KNOW
OH OH OH OH OH
REMEMBER YOU'RE IN CONTOL

SO, TELL ME WHAT YOU LIVE FOR,
TELLME WHY YOU'RE HERE AND NOW
TELL ME WHERE YOUR HEART IS,
WHERE YOUR LOYALTIES LAY DOWN
TELL ME WHAT YOU TELL YOURSELF,
THAT LET'S YOU PUSH ON THROUGH
TELL ME YOUR DEFINITION
OF YOU

NEVER COMPRIMISE YOURSELF
YOU COULD LOSE WHAT YOU BELIEVE
INSIDE EACH AND EVERYONE
A CHILD WAITS TO BE RELEASED

TO BE SET FREE
]
CH.

SO TAKE TIME EACH DAY TO FALL
IN LOVE
LIVE EACH DAY LIKE IT'S YOUR LAST ONE
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND BREATH IN DEEP
OH OH OH OH OH
TAKE A MOMENT AND JUST BE
JUST BE

CH. X 2

AFTER AWHILE

Written By: FHFS

After a while, I see you in the sun
I see you clear, like the fear in the sky
Nobody knew, I had a look through time
Leavin' you is another way to fly

and I drown all these tears with you
and I drown all these years with you

Comin' down, it seems there's no pattern
same old story and I've known you all this time
nothin' else can ever break the time?
Leavin' you is another way to fly

and I drown all these tears with you
and I drown all these years with you

and all that I ask of you
Did I ever get through
And all that I ask of you
did I ever get through

Did I ever get through
Did I ever get through

MORNING NIGHT

Written By: FHFS


Well, there's lots of pretty women,
and lots o' things to see,
and I haven't made my mind up
what's it gonna be

So why don't you shut your lip up,
quit bringin' this down on me
and I wont have invitations

for you to come home
on this morning night
an' you're so fine
an' it makes me wild
arwh

Well, there's lots of situations,
and lots of guarantees,
an' I'm waiting for the sunset
to shine down on me

So why don't you shut your lip up,
quit bringin' this down on me
and I wont have hesitations

for you to come home
on this morning night
an' you're so fine
an' it makes me wild
arwh

REMEMBER LOVE

Written By: FHFS

Would you be with me
for a while
Just to let me
hold this smile

In this garden
we could lie
'till we rise up
to the sky

cause that's what I
came here too see
and that's what I
came here to be
come tell me what you
came here to see
and would you like to
see it with me

just when I
was giving up
there you are
I remember love

will you give this
time to me
a life or a day
it feels o.k.

Fate will not leave you alone
when destiny is calling you home
time will be on your side
when love is the wave that you ride

Do you remember me
cause that's what I came here to see
do you remember me
cause that's what I came here to be
Do you remember me
come tell me what you came here to see
Do you remember me
and would you like to see it with me

Do you remember
