Lyrics

Plastic Hero

Written By: Corinne Bohjanen

Those days waiting for an action figure
A plastic hero battling with a spaceship in the sky
He wasn’t real yet he wasn’t imagined
He was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing he was there was something

Every day waiting for an actor
A made up character acting in a show about nothing
She wasn’t real yet she wasn’t imagined
She was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing she was there was something

They took a nonsense world and made it right
Built a real life out of nothing
Turned an imaginary room into their own house of truth

He was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing he was there was something
She was nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing she was there was something
They were nowhere living in a room that didn’t exist
But somehow just knowing they were there was something real

WABASH
Lyrics by Corinne Bohjanen

Let’s go out and play tonight
Heading north over the Fort Pitt bridge
Cutting through the city to the south side of town
Set this place to music and make it our own

We all have a story to tell
Pouring our hearts out into our songs
Sharing our music and the night
We all can sing along
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la la

It’s been a good long night
Toting our guitars to the open mic
Twenty good musicians and some bottles of beer
The night is over and we can’t stay here

Time to take the road back out
Leaving the city and heading south
Through the Wabash tunnel and heading home
We set the south side to music and made it our own

Magic Soap

Written By: Corinne Bohjanen

I know I can’t read it in my horoscope
Or in the shower on the magic soap
Even the fortune in my take out dish
Won’t tell me how to handle this

Why does the whole world think it could tell us what to do

They tell us that our dreams won’t pay the rent
Life can’t be lived in a circus tent
We need to buckle down and do it their way
Everyone has too much to say

I don’t want to hear (I can’t hear)
All your bad advice
I know I can’t read it in my horoscope
Or in the shower on the magic soap
Even the fortune in my take out dish
Won’t tell me how to handle this

Picnic

Written By: Corinne Bohjanen

City of glass and steel silver rivers down below
On this hilltop above the haze
Is where we have to go
Leaves of many colors provide the cover for the ground
These trees above the city stand so still and make no sound
They tell not of our presence they stand tall over our love
As we watch the real world passing time down below
From our hiding place above

The late sun warms the hillside
And showers everything in light
The warm sun is our blanket
And protection as we hide out in plain site

Below the bridges close the gap
With steel arms extended they pull us toward a time
When all these moments have ended
Hide out hide out in plain site
Though now we come bearing quiet love
It can’t be swept aside no no no
Someday we'll walk the streets down below
With nothing left to hide
