Nothing is real, ‘cept that which you feel
Everything else is a prop
No one can stop you and nothing ever will
And that which you dream, though distant it seems
Is constantly calling you near
Here’s what you do to hear it: BE PERFECTLY STILL

Everything is gonna be ok, everyone is gonna be alright
Look for wonderful & wicked days
And more comfortable & lonely nights
We’ll have people living under the ocean
And farmers still bailing hay
Everything is gonna be ok

Quarter to 10, you’re at it again
Sippin’ your old special friend
Thought this was going to end last night
A knock on the door, you’ve heard it before
And fear that you’ll hear it again


Reach, don’t you ever stop your reaching
Teach with the things that you do
The beach holds the answers we are seeking
Healthy souls grow old in the absence of war
Now is the time to live like never before
Come around tomorrow & we'll do it some more…

Best Game In Town

Written By: John Walsh

I’ve seen so many changes in my lifetime
And there are things that stay the same
I’ve wrestled fate and walked a thin line
Then I’ve stayed in bed for several days
If you’re wondering where did the day go
You’re kicking yourself too hard
If you’re burst of inspiration’s a no show
The fire just might need fanning

Gather ‘round, hear that sound
You have found the best game in town
How ya feel? Keepin’ it real?
So seal the deal, you’re the best game in town

So you don’t have the abs of a pop star
But you’re Bollywood bound or bust
Everyone & God knows you deserve it
But the rain, it doesn’t favor the just
Get yourself a home near the valley
Something nice not far from the coast
Divvy up your hard earned tally
Make yourself the most of it


You feel a little like a martyr
But the drama’s warm and soothing
Maybe you and Jimmy Carter
Could build me a house

Written By: John Walsh

In Northern Ireland
There’s a plot of earth where silently sleeps
Nothing less than heritage
And all the dazzling secrets that she keeps

Is it my lack of integrity that keeps me far away?

And when the rain comes down in June
You know that something’s askew
A common name
A familiar tune and suddenly old is new

Is it my lack of integrity that keeps me far away?

Is this what you’ve been waiting for
You’ve been waiting
Is this what you’ve been waiting for
You’ve been waiting long enough

A stolen glance, a quick embrace
And to thine own self be true
It’s the final dance
I see your face and want to share it with you

Is it our lack of integrity that keeps us far away?
