Lyrics

Baby Blue Harley

Written By: Karla Cruz

Baby Blue Harley

I’ll climb on your back and
Let’s get out of here
You hold the key
To all that I hold dear
Who knows my tender friend,
When I’ll pass this way again?

on my

Chorus: Baby Blue Harley
Miles and miles of broken track
Ride your pain to hell and back
Baby Blue Harley
Chrome and rack, the motor flack
Ride your pain to hell and back

I rode someone before with you
Round and round we scattered every clue
And though I begged him no,
He wouldn’t take it slow,

on my

Chorus: Baby Blue Harley
Towns flew by, the wind-whipped fire
He paid for his misplaced desire
Baby Blue Harley
Crash and burn and busted tires
He paid for his misplaced desire

MID 8
The guy in the truck; thumbs up
The old one drivin’ too slow;
Should have lost her license years ago
Cherry Cadillac; waves back
Grey man with his ear in the phone;
I can tell from here, he doesn’t wanna go home.

We’re just looking for a place we can be free
Until then I’ll be content with this reprieve
The wind whips through my hair,
Destination: I don’t care, on my

Chorus:
Baby Blue Harley
Miles and miles of broken track
Ride your pain to hell and back
Baby Blue Harley
Chrome and rack, the motor flack
Ride your pain to hell and back

Too Long Away

Written By: Karla Cruz


Downwind, fragrance fills the air
Hills like a painting in my head
Early morning train, her lonely call
Lay awake and know that home was all.

Funny, I know things have changed
But in my mind, I see everything the same
I see the places still blue and green
And your face in every scene.

Call me a sentimental fool
My heart still rooted in the past
I can remember what it’s like to be young
I can remember fighting for a chance

Now, in each lonely night
I can feel it in every bone of mine
I’ve got to go back and I know that it’s right
I’ve been too long away

Sirens

Funny, I know things have changed
But in my mind, I see everything the same
I can remember what it’s like to be young
I can remember fighting for a chance

Baby, baby, in each lonely night
I can feel it in this soul of mine
I’ve got to go back and I know that it’s right
I’ve been too long away

I've been too long away
