Life’s Dance (Here in America)

Written By: Keith L Volquardsen

He said I’ve come to you because I need a little miracle
But see I’ve only brought my dreams to this life’s dance
She said I’ll take your poor, your homeless and your helpless
I make no promises, but I can give you this chance

Cause here in America,
You can gather up your dreams
Let em’ sail out on the breeze
Like an Angel’s wings
Like sweet soft lullaby
And let your spirit rise
Like the truth in your lover’s eyes
And just believe in what you feel
Make a wish and make it real
If you try, if you just try

And so he came and built a life and raised a family
He spent two years away from home in that damn war
He said, it’s somethin’ I had to do,
because the one thing that still rings true
is when I look and see how far I’ve come
These kids can be even more

Cause here in America,
They can gather up their dreams
Let em’ sail out on the breeze
Like an Angel’s wings
Like sweet soft lullaby

Then let their spirits rise
Like the truth in my baby’s eyes
And just believe in what they feel
Make a wish and make it real

And not a day goes by, I don’t think of my Old Man at least once or twice
And when this World starts pushin’ hard on me, I can still hear his advice

Cause here in America,
I can gather up my dreams
Let em’ sail out on the breeze
Like an Angel’s wings
Like sweet soft lullaby
And let my spirit rise
Like the truth in my lover’s eyes
And just believe in what I feel
Make a wish and make it real
If I try, if I just try

And so I’ve come to you because I need a little miracle
But see I’ve only brought my dreams to this Life’s Dance

One for the Road

Written By: Keith L Volquardsen

Maybe there’s a way to say I’m sorry
For leaving you all the time
Riding the highway, searching the night
For one more rhythm
Maybe I can stay until tomorrow
And love you until the dawn
Maybe you’ll wake up to a brand new morning
And find that I’m gone

But we’ve got tonight, a bottle of wine
And we’ve got each other
And if it’s alright well I’d like to make
a toast to my lover

So here’s to the day I met you girl
I knew from the start
The words that you spoke so soft and so sweet
Came straight from the heart

And here’s to the nights I held you close
All the secrets we told
But save the last toast for me babe,
Cause I’m one for the Road
Just One for the Road

And even when you’re far from me
One night of honesty
Helps me through these times
when I’m all alone.
And funny how these days pass by
Seems no matter how hard I try
I always find myself out here
And you on the phone

But we’ve got tonight, a bottle of wine
And we’ve got each other
And if it’s alright well I’d like to make
a toast to my lover

So here’s to the times that are still ahead
And the hours we’ll share
Well if I can’t always be around
You know I still care

And here’s to the nights I held you close
All the secrets we told
But save the last toast for me babe,
Cause I’m one for the Road
Just One for the Road
