If Rob Thomas and John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls got together and began talking about old Bon Jovi tunes then our music would be playing in the background.

Biography

Every day is a gift that needs to be cherished. One single event can change the course of the rest of your life, the lives of others, and even the history of our own planet.

The Joe Gosman Band’s involvement with music is not merely a profession but an offspring of a love for life and the interwoven tapestry that connects us all. The Joe Gosman Band plays music because music is what is inside.

The band writes smart, catchy, and fun melodies. The music can be described as Rob Thomas meets Lynyrd Skynyrd. They will get you out on the dance floor and even hold your heart with a powerful ballad. When you leave a show it is quite probable that you will also have met someone new.

Life is not about what you did. It is about who you did ‘it’ with.

Don’t live life. Experience it.

Side note: The Joe Gosman Band has opened for National acts such as: The Fountains of Wayne, Josh Kelley, and Carbon Leaf. They will be opening up this coming May 16th for the Smithereens. Their songs have also made it to the airways of 93.7 BOB FM, 88.7 WXJM, and 95.3 WHLF FM.

Lyrics

18 Wheels

Written By: Joe Gosman

Title: (18 wheels)
(Verse 1)
-18 wheels keep rolling on.
-Know better than me…. Where you are
-Now I’ve realized that I was wrong.
-Where you’ve gone now?
-I can’t tell how far

(Pre chorus)
-Cause you didn’t leave a number
-Or a note for me to call
-But you did leave one thing.
-And that says it all

(Chorus)
-But I can’t take it
-I won’t leave it
-I won’t believe it … so why’d you leave it?
-You didn’t mean it
-You were just upset
-You don’t believe it… so why’d you leave it?

(Verse 2)
-18 wheels keep rolling on
-I’ll search for you … I don’t care how far.
-My feet are tired but my hearts still strong.
-I called your sister… she told me where you are

(Pre-chorus)
-She said she talked to you last night
-And felt the tears on the phone
-Confused, upset, didn’t’ understand.
-Why she left you and the ring… alone

(Repeat Chorus 2 X)

(Bridge-)
What do you want me to say? I’ll do anything… I live for you…. I die for you… Here’s this ring it belongs to you … and so do I …. And you belong to me….

(Chorus)
-So I won’t take it…. Here you keep it…. Please believe it… I need you.. In my life… you’re my wife…. Please believe it… I need you

Two Weeks

Written By: Joe Gosman

You can’t control me, you don’t own me, though you know where I’m at.
Where I’m at ain’t where I belong.

Take me off your agenda, return to sender.
Oh you didn’t know?

I won’t play your foolish games.

Puttin in my two weeks, come tomorrow.
I can’t take another day.
Puttin in my two weeks, maybe on second thought.
Might as well make it today.

I built a castle but you’re the king,
Understand just one thing, kings can be forgotten.

I’m the gladiator like big daddy max
Understand that that’s a fact.

The name is Joe Gosman baby.

Puttin in my two weeks, come tomorrow.
I can’t take another day.
Puttin in my two weeks, maybe on second thought.
Might as well make it today.

I hope you're happy

Buildings are starting to fall, bricks beginning to break.
Your steps are leaving cracks on the sidewalks of these empty streets.
I’m going blind from your eyes, oh it feels like fire of 1000 suns.
I hope your darkness has come.

I hope you are happy.
I hope you are so happy.

Buildings are starting to fall, bricks beginning to break.
Your steps are leaving cracks on the sidewalks of these empty streets.
I’m going blind from your eyes, oh it feels like fire of 1000 suns.
This tragedy began with me, so let it end with me.
I can never be everything you wanted me to be.
From your hell, I’ve become this numb.
I wish this pain on no one.
Behind your eyes, beneath your tongue,
I hope your darkness has come.

I hope you are happy.
I hope you are so happy.

I guess I should have seen it coming. You know? You see the clouds before you feel the rain. I’ve moved on but where have you gone? By this time, you’ve probably been done wrong.

Well I raise my glass to you, tip my hat to you, every time you pass. Well I raise my glass to you, tip my hat to you, every time you pass.

I hope you are happy.
I hope you are so happy.
