Lyrics

Special Interest Group

Written By: Jesse Lane

Verse 1:
I always wanted to be an unwed mother
So I could qualify for welfare
And watch TV with my boyfriend all day
Verse 2:
I always wanted to be a millionaire
Put my money through a loophole
And into my favorite charity, namely me

Chorus:
Cuz when you’re in a special interest group
You got the government jumping through your hoop
I wish I was in a special interest group

Verse 3:
I always wanted to be a farmer
And drive a Cadillac
And get paid for not growing rutabagas every day

Verse 4:
I always wanted to be a general
Be right behind my troops
In my brand-new shiny red bullet-proof Hummer SUV
With 8-speaker stereo and HD satellite TV

[Chorus]

Verse 5:
I always wanted to be a politician
Passing convoluted laws
And push thru a bill to triple my salary

Verse 6:
I always wanted to be a banker
Giving other people’s money away
And then sailing to Fiji on a bailout cruise

[Chorus]

To Kiss

Written By: Jesse Lane

I don’t want to walk away
I don’t want to walk away from this
I want to find a way to stay
Find a way to stay with you
To kiss

I don’t want to say good-bye
I don’t want to say good-bye like this
Reason after reason given why
If only we could just begin to try
To kiss, to kiss
To kiss, to kiss

It’s mystical to kiss you
Ethereal, to kiss
So magical to kiss you
Love has a way of changing over time
But change is not the end of love
It can be a chance to renew
All we need to do is
To kiss

You can always come to me
Come to me and share the love we miss
We know there can be no guarantee
I only hope that we can just be free
To kiss, to kiss
To kiss, to kiss
To kiss, oh to kiss
To kiss, oh to kiss
Oh to kiss
You

Dragonfly

Written By: Jesse Lane

On a clear Sunday morning,
I see a look in her eyes
Must be some kind of warning,
Stormy weather in disguise
She said they told her there was something wrong
And there was no known cure
Something rare, so just how long
No one knew for sure

We only met just weeks ago
She thought it fair I should know
That I could leave... but wait, something there
Was darting through the air

Dragonfly, soaring over my shoulder
Dragonfly, you heard what I told her
I'm here to stay, here to stay
And so we traveled down to Mexico
To Kauai and Big Sur
It didn't matter where I might go
As long as I was with her
Then one fine day by a waterfall
I gave her that special ring
Over the roar of that waterfall
You could hear our two hearts sing

Was I sure, she wanted to know
When anytime she might go
Suddenly much to our surprise
Hovering right there before our eyes

Dragonfly, soaring over my shoulder
Dragonfly, you heard what I told her
I'm here to stay, here to stay
She looked so pretty on our wedding day
As she walked down the garden trail
Our enchanted marriage there above the bay
Was a true-life fairytale
After our vows had just been said
Something stirred overhead
As we looked up into the air
We saw dragonflies everywhere!

Dragonfly, soaring over my shoulder
Dragonfly, you heard what I told her
Dragonfly, soaring over my shoulder
Dragonfly, you heard what I told her
And as I grow older,
After her journey to the sky,
My spirit will be with her when I see a dragonfly...

Oasis

Written By: Jesse Lane

Why are they afraid of us
Just because we're in love, because we're in love
Why do they disapprove of us
We're so in love, we're so in love

So our love is our oasis
In this desert of fear
Love is our oasis, oasis

Holy men won't let us wed
But we're still in love, we're still in love
Marry your own faith, they said
No, we'll stay in love, we'll stay in love
We'll stay in love, we'll stay in love

So our love is our oasis
In this desert of fear
Love is our oasis
It's not a mirage
Love is our oasis, I really love you
In this desert of fear
Love is our oasis, we'll make our love our oasis
Oasis

Shunned by our families
Because of our love, because of our love
Now we are refugees
Forever in love, forever in love
It's not a mirage, it's not a mirage

So our love is our oasis
In this desert of fear
Love is our oasis
It's not a mirage
Love is our oasis, I really love you
In this desert of fear, we'll leave the desert behind
Love is our oasis, stay in our oasis
Oasis

Alien Girl

Written By: Jesse Lane

Far, far away on an alien world
Someone is calling my name
She calls with a soft silent voice from the void
And mesmerized I realize she sets my soul aflame

Alien Girl
Oh, my little Alien Girl
I love you
Though I can’t see you

Across space and time our emotions enswirl
The universe vibrates in harmony
Stars sway while comets play to our tune of joy
Our love will sing an ethereal melody

[chorus]

Faster than light our love breaks all the rules
Even Einstein never dreamed this far
Flying through space we outrace the galaxies
They fall like shooting stars
Flying through time this heart of mine is on its way
To make astral love with you

[chorus]

I love you
You’re my little Alien Girl

Who You Are

Written By: Jesse Lane

Did you ever look in the mirror
Did you ever wonder who you really are
Wonder who you really are

Did you ever look at your reflection
Ever question your direction
Ever wonder how you got this far

No one can tell you how to live your life
That's a road only you can travel on
You could be a preacher
A science teacher
A famous movie star
Or just play guitar
Start with who you are

Did you ever look over your fences
Seem a little greener to your senses
Seem a little greener on the other side

Maybe your own grass needs some water
To grow a little greener on the inside
A little wiser on the inside

No one can tell you how to live your life
That's a road only you can travel on
You could be a writer
A firefighter
An anchor on the news
Or a singer of the blues
Start with who are
To learn who you can be
Who you are
Find out who you are

It can take some work
And it can take some time
I know that you can find out
Who you really are
Who you really are
Find out who you really are
Find out who you really are

No one can tell you how to live your life
That's a road only you travel
Start with who you are
To learn who you can be
Who you are
Find out who you are

Ring of Fire

Written By: Jesse Lane

Verse 1:
There is a Ring of Fire
Burning everywhere
The situation's dire
Smoke is choking the air
I see a Ring of Fire
Flash out of a dream
A nightmare terrifier
I can hear people scream
Chorus:
Where is the hope, where is the joy?
Where is the promised peace
For everyone on Earth to enjoy
Without fear
It's perfectly clear
So gather up your courage
And put out the fire
The Ring of Fire, with your love

Verse 2:
I feel the Ring of Fire
Closer every day
A parasite of fire
Scorching anything in its way
I'm not a prophesier
But I can tell what's true
It’s such a horrifier
What hatred can do

[Chorus]

Put out the fire
A River of Love
Will put out the Ring of Fire

Verse 3:
We're in a Ring of Fire
Fueled by heated hate
We need a pacifier
Time is running so late
Life is on the wire
War is so insane
The flames keep roaring higher
I can feel their pain
Finale:
There can be hope!
There can be joy!
There can be perfect peace
For everyone on Earth to enjoy
Without fear
It's perfectly clear
So gather up your courage, gather up your courage
And put out the fire
The Ring of Fire
With your love
Put out the fire
A River of Love
Will put out the burning Ring of Fire
