Lyrics

Electric Life

Written By: Steve Schopgens aka Kyler Schogen

He said you’re not electric, not even psychedelic
You and I don’t even breathe the same world
Dancing on the grave of originality
While I host a séance for my broken dreams
A mariachi wedding, unfinished phrases of my life
Moving with conviction, never putting on the shelf
Rubber soles I carry to cushion my fall
Tender night whispers that roll just like a ball

So here and now I carry, like a packrat I call
To every wounded soul, but the message just falls
Sometimes I remember the good times we had
Tequila conversations, gestures of the heart
Now and then when I scrape myself off the floor
And go to that place that’s hidden from the war
And I think of you and me in a pool of sunlit sea
A rainbow of colors falling down on me
That porthole to another time another frame of mind
Keeps my soul shattering the mirrors in my mind

I’m looking now into your eyes hoping to find
Some splinters of that long ago, traces of my life
Sometimes I can only sleep escaping to the dark
Returning to my land of dreams I’ll find you there again
I’ll find you there again yeah

Mr. Wrong

Written By: Steve Schopgens aka. Kyler

V.1
I don’t wash up the dishes
My chores are few
I clean the table with your dress
When I’m makin’ love to you
Mr. Wrong
I’d have to say baby that’s right
All over town
They call me Mr. Wrong and that’s right

V.2
I’m up all night
I sleep all day
I don’t pay rent, I’m just lazy
While you work the day away
Mr. Wrong
I’d have to say baby that’s right
All over town
They call me Mr. Wrong and that’s right

CH.
Mr. Wrong, baby that’s right
I’m Mr. Wrong, yeah baby that’s right
All over town they call me Mr. Wrong and that’s right

V.3
I look real good
In the clothe you bought
I can’t seem to contribute
But I sure complain a lot
Mr. Wrong
I’d have to say baby that’s right
All over town
They call me Mr. Wrong and that’s right
