Lyrics

Guy Singing on the Radio

Written By: Mike Miller

Guy Singing on the Radio
Heard a guy singing on the radio
you know he must have been reading my mind.
singing songs I sang in my dreams
must ve been reading my mind.
must ve been reading my mind.

seems like he knows my world
seems like he knows my girls

Heard a girl singing on the MTV
she really was blowing my mind
singing songs in her black panties
she must have been reading my mind.

seems like she knows my heart
seems like she knows the part
seems like she is so smart

Heard a guy singing on the barroom stage
you know he must ve been living my life
singing songs I sang on the wing
you know he’s got to take in all in stride.
or else you won’t get it right.

seems like he knows for sure
seems like he’s got the cure.
Knows what he’s got to lose.

Saw ‘em singing on the TV screen
Judges and audience so wide
tell everybody what they got to do
they must have been living the life
they seem life they got it down tight
seems like they know the groove
seems like they know for sure

Money Will Come

Written By: Mike Miller

Money Will Come

And they tell me follow your dreams

And they say do what you want

and money will come

Lots of people have lots of dreams, lot of people it
seems

when they are young they look to the sky

and they work harder than the other guy

and they don’t want to be like their parents

who made so many stupid mistakes

Where’s my money, where’s my dream

It ain’t very funny to be somewhere in between

I just wanted to be free

but there’s too many people to feed.

Money won’t come,

My money won’t come

Above is original version on myspace: June 2006,
listened to my hundreds of people.

Expanded version:

Money Will Come

And they tell me follow your dreams

And they say do what you want

and money will come

Lots of people have lots of dreams, lot of people it
seems

when they are young they look to the sky

and they work harder than the other guy

and they don’t want to be like their parents

who made so many stupid mistakes

Where’s my money, where’s my dream

It ain’t very funny to be somewhere in between

I just wanted to be free

but there’s too many people to feed.

Money won’t come,

My money won’t come
And they say anything is possible

and you can have anything you want and money will
come.

Lots of people talking lots of shit sometimes I get
tired of it.

so I look to the sky and tried getting high

sometimes I feel like I lost it.

Where’s my money, where’s my dream

It ain’t very funny to be somewhere in between

I just wanted to be free

but there’s too many people to feed.
Money won’t come, my money won’t come

Need to Breathe

Written By: Mike Miller

NEED TO BREATHE
E G A % You tell me that if I’m lovin for love,
I’d better look back at you when I’m walking out the
door.
Well, I tell ya that it’s not love I’m needing today.
All I want to be is me. Not just one of your dreams.
i just wanna be free. That’s all I need to be.
Please don’t try to change me.
It makes me feel so lonely.
I need me. I need to breathe. Ebmaj7 Cmaj7 Dmaj7

E G A %It was something that you said that I really
didn’t understand
and it didn’t matter anyway, cause I really couldn’t
stay (another day)
Well, I know ya really don’t want me
So I might as well leave you here. That’s all I see
we need.
Please don’t try to take me
for a ride and then just dump me.
I need to live my own life. Ebmaj7 Cmaj7 Dmaj7

E G A % You tell me I’m just running from love,
I’d better think about your ass when you’re walking
out the door.
If that’s all it is, we might as well clear the slate.
I just need someone for me. That’s all I really need.
I just want to be set free. That’s all I wanna be.
Please don’t try to chain me
It takes down and then I
Got to be free. I need to breathe. Ebmaj7 Cmaj7 Dmaj7

E G A % I’m mad at the world, but they say it’s all my
fault.
I’m mad at god, but it doesn’t matter anyway.
Gmaj9 Amaj9 Cmaj9

E G A % They say I’m weak cause I let them run all
over me.
Please don’t try to break me, it makes me wanna go
crazy.
I need to breathe, Just need to breathe.

Kiss My Ass Goodbye

Written By: Mike Miller

I loved the way you held me.
You made me feel so good.
You knew the way to tease me
but it’s all over now.

cause you shunned the way I loved you.
You made me feel so damn low
I had no way to please you
so there’s no turning round.

You may say it’s not my right.
but you soon will find.
You won’t have me down the line
So you might as well not try.

You can kiss my ass goodbye.
I ain’t got to tell you why.
You might as well go fly,
You can kiss my ass goodbye.

You can have your friends now please.
why did I waste my time.
No, we can’t get high
You can just take a ride.

We have lost what we had
Now I am really kind of glad.
and I don’t feel sad.
In fact it makes me laugh.

I loved the way you’d melt me.
but I knew we should
start a brand new day
and find a way on our own.

You can kiss my ass goodbye.
I ain’t got to tell you why.
You might as well go fly,
You can kiss my ass goodbye.

I loved the way you’d squeeze me.
But I can’t go by that
so I’m putting on my hat.
You can’ go ahead and be sad.

Dreams and Ashes

Dreams and Ashes

C/Bb/G/F
(G) Years without tears,
happiness was all I (F)knew.
I’m falling through, (G)
don’t you know the ocean’s blue (G)
storny seas will bring you to your knees.

Dreams and ashes crumble down,
(G)falling round my (F)life
take their toll, and don’t you know,
it’s driving me insane.
(G) soon I won’t know my name (F)
(G) soon I won’t know my name. (F)

C/Bb/G/F
Beers without cheers,
happiness was gone without you
I had to choose,
don’t you know our love was true,
all we see will set us free.

C/Bb/G/F
dreams and ashes crumble down,
falling round my life
take their toll, and don’t you know,
it’s driving me insane.
(G)soon I won’t know my name (F)
(G)soon I won’t know my name. (F)
