Lyrics

Black & Blue

Written By: Mark Cashin

BLACK & BLUE

This funny thing called love
It comes down from above
It stabs into your heart
It leaves you in the dark
He broke your heart into
Nothing you can do
We found you black and blue
He watched you from the car
As you walked down through the park
He wanted to come home
You wanted to be left alone
He broke your heart in two
Nothin you can do
We found you black and blue
Don’t need it, can’t feel it,
If ya don’t want it just walk away
No don’t let it conquer you,
We found you black and blue, yeah
He waited in the dark
You walked along the path
And now your feeling used
What story will you use
We found you black and blue
Don’t need it, can’t feel it,
If ya don’t want it just walk away
Don’t let it conquer you
Well he broke your heart
Left you torn apart,
As you fly across the room, yeah
This funny thing called love

GYPSY LADY

Hey gypsy lady what you gonna do
Drift back into your old world that your used to
Well it’s full of thieves and lies and shady friends
Were everybody wants to pretend
If you rise from the bottom up to the top babe
Don’t call it disco and you got through the new wave
Crystal is clear meth it’s just like a blue day
So hold on to me like I held on to you babe
Everyday its just the same thing over and over again
Gypsy lady have it your way
Over and over with my friends
You love your diamonds you love your gold
Your are so beautiful you’ve been told
We can’t tell that your not old
Gotta slip on back to the rhythm of the mercy fold
If you rise from the bottom up to the top babe
Don’t call it disco and you got through the new wave
Crystal is clear meth just like a blue day
So hold on to me like I held on to you babe
Everyday its just the same thing over and over again
Gypsy lady have it your way
Over and over with my friends
Everyday its just the same thing over and over again
Gypsy lady have it your way
Over and over to my friends

Love Song

Written By: Mark Cashin

LOVE SONG

U woke me up, took me out to break the news
Told me he was gone, broke my heart in two
Had to be the man, when I was just a kid
Met a beautiful girl that’s just what I did
I talked to you last night we didn’t connect at all
Sometimes I don’t know what I’m asking for
Take a walk outside look just what I’ve done
And try to remember I’m my father’s son
And I know that someday in some old fashioned way
Gonna sit down and write you a love song
And I cry and I try
I’m all broken down inside
All I wanna do is write you a love song
You spent to much time in those high heel shoes
Just wanna relax right at home with you
Waves of pressure from this scary scary world
Just wanna be there for you and my boy and girl
And I know that someday in some old fashioned way
Gonna sit down and write you a love song
And I cry and I try
I’m all broken down inside
All I wanna do is write you a love song
And I know that someday in some old fashioned way
Gonna sit down and write you a love song
And I cry and I try
I’m all broken down inside
All I wanna do is write you a love song
And I know the way and I try I try and I know the way
U woke me up, took me out to break the news
Told me he was gone broke my heart into
Had to be the man when I was just a kid
Met a beautiful girl that’s just what I did

Mary Jane

MARY JANE

Would you still love me
If the heavens opened up above me
Would u still need me
If the devil rises up to meet me
Mary Jane what you got on today
Just your pretty face
Or a childhood memory you can’t erase
I’ve seen the signs
Sometimes your behaviour is way out of line
But that’s okay
Did you really wanna dance today
Now Come on Come on
Didn’t wanna see you hide your pretty face
Come on Come on
That’s not really like you to feel this way
Mary Jane Stay the same
Mary Jane Your ok
Ann Marie your not the girl for me
Your DVD,s
Thought I recognised you in that scene
You can play
Did you really do an ounce today
That’s ok, It doesn’t matter to me anyway
Come on Come on
Didn’t wanna see you hide your pretty face
Come on Come on
That’s not really like you to feel this way
Mary Jane Stay the same Mary Jane
You’re ok x 3
Come on Come on
Didn’t wanna see you hide your pretty face
Come on x 4 Mary Jane
Mary Jane
Stay the same baby
Mary Jane
Your ok x 3

'Ordinary People' CASHOLOGY

Written By: Mark Cashin

So Ordinary
You make it up along the way
Be careful of the things you say
You bend the truth a little each time
You sit & talk repeat your lines
You look away when I smile
I think I know that ones a lie

And I know the things you say
Could almost seem a touch unreal
That’s when I ask my friend
Whats youre deal
We’re just ordinary people
We’re just ordinary people

I guess it maybe all in vein
The memory you must maintain
To keep youre story straight all the time
A little slip will let you down
Embarrass you all over town
Make sure that I don’t see the signs

And I know the things you say
Could almost seem a touch unreal
That’s when I ask my friend
Whats youre deal
We’re just ordinary people
We’re just ordinary people

I hear it all the time
You try to beef up your fab-ri-cat-ed lines
It seems so ord-in-ary
It borders on ex-trod-in-ary……please
To us Ordinary People
To us Ordinary People

So Ordinary

I hear it all the time
You try to beef up your fab-ri-cat-ed lines
It seems so ord-in-ary
It borders on ex-trod-in-ary……please
To us Ordinary People
To us Ordinary People
We’re just ordinary people
We’re just ordinary people
We’re just ord-in-ary

Mother Earth

Written By: Mark Cashin

(Extract of Lyrics - Mother Earth)

Mother Earth has gone back to the dark again
She lays sleepin for another day
I hope when she wakes we're saved from destruction
Leave the buried in our wake
I feel the ground rumble beneath my weary feet
It shakes the earth and trees fall down on top of me
I stare the sun and then the clouds they darken all my day
Lightening flashes all around me
Mother Earth come on and save my skin
She reminds me of the shape im in
Mother Earth come on and save my skin
Just when i was goin crazy
Then she came along and saved me yeah - Do it again..
