Lyrics

ALL I SEE

Written By: Johnny Vans

ALL I SEE

Sitting no where in time
Thinking with a no where mind
All I see is dirt
Clouding up my mind

Take of your rusty chains
Make a bolt for the mountains plain
Looking out at the atlantic sea
All I see is me

Does not matter where you go
Runaway you will know
Look into a mirror’s eye
Playing with your mind

Standing in the cold winter’s rain
Wash of the blue again
If I’m here naked and free
All I see is me

Outro

With no bad thoughts
With no sad tales
Pure as a crystal heart
Pure as a crystal heart

One Teardrop

Written By: Johnny Vans

ONE TEARDROP

DOES’NT MATTER WHERE-I LAY MY HEAD
AS LONG AS YOU LAY YOUR’S NEXT TO MINE
LOOKING UP ON A CLEAR NIGHT
EVENING STARS BURNING BRIGHT
DONT YOU KNOW---- I’M IN AVALON

I GOT THIS FEVER BAD
QUENCH MY THIRST---MAKE IT LAST
IT’S THE TIME TO INVITE---IT’S YOUR RIGHT
THIS TIME OF YOUR LIFE

PICK ME UP OF MY FEET
TAKE THE BLIND AWAY FROM ME
A WHOLE WORLD IN ONE TEARDROP
CATCH IT--BEFORE IT DROPS
DON’T YOU KNOW---I’M IN AVALON

I GOT THIS FEVER BAD
QUENCH MY THIRST---MAKE IT LAST
IT’S YOUR TIMETO INVITE---IT’S YOUR RIGHT
THIS TIME OF YOUR LIFE

IF I

Written By: Johnny Vans

IF I

If I know where I stand
Would I be an innocent kind of man
If I see it sink away
Would it be the dawn rising to say
If I was to walk the world
See many things know what they mean
If I was to walk the world
See many things know what they mean

DO YOU SEE THE BIRDS FROM THE TREES
CAN YOU SEE IF YOUR STANDING UP OR ON YOUR KNEEES

If I was to tell to you
The world is flat what would you do
If I was to say Its true
Don’t make it right here’s what you do
If you go your own route
On the highway you chose
If you go your own route
On the highway you chose
