Lyrics

Nashville Gold

Written By: Troy Eck

Was it something that I said?
Or just something on your mind?
For your eyes gleam indifferent,
And your words don’t roll out like the way they use to,

With a lonely autumn storm,
Just above the night,
Such questions shadow like the rain,
All these tears in your mind,

Is the Nashville Gold not as bright?
As you have dreamed it to be, Oh Honey...
Things not work out just like the way you wanted them,
My Darling…

Stare not to think at what cost,
The sound of the woman,
Or the fate of her breaking heart
Trust is only need,
Only need...
Trust is only need...

And now those whispers in the dark,
Are felled by your gaze,
And all that money in Tennessee,
Couldn’t steal you from this place,

Is the Nashville Gold not as bright?
As you have dreamed it to be,
Things not work out just like the way you wanted them,
My Darling…

Mad Scar

Written By: Troy Eck

When will that Sun rise again?
So tired of walking around out in the rain,
And now the ghosts are gathering,
Vying to balance out my day,
Hey, hey...
Mirror, hall mirror's on the floor,
Victims by design, we are,
Been at this thing called life with nothing else to prove, Hell Yeah.
All alone still swings the door,
Talk it out as my father had before me,
Hold the hope now in this here bottle held in my hand,
God only knows if or when Darling you could love me,
So I’ll head on down that road…not to be coming around here anymore,
Talk it out as my father had before me,
Hold the hope now in this here guitar held in my hand,
God only knows if or when Darling you could love me,
So I’ll head on out that door…not to be coming around here anymore,
Anymore, no, anymore, not anymore,
Around here, .around here...around here,
No No.No...

Girl with Sunflower Blue Eyes

Written By: Troy Eck

Did I miss something in the mid-night hours of youth?
In all those visions forever undeserved while in Hell,
In all those lessons that I had not learned in love,
In all those questions that confound all of you,
Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah…

Well traveled roads bleed through this a lost nation,
Get to where we’re going if we get there in a matter of life...
These broken roads stretch the limits of my impatience,
Until yesterdays fears, return into tomorrow’s lies,

Who said, all good things will come to pass?
Like the beating of your heart within my head,
Who said, a love like ours would never last? Oh God...
Then she said, Ah…forget the past lets start from here!

Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah....

Two folded hands open quietly the morning sun,
Atomic rhetoric glistens in pure defiance,
And all my peoples and all their friends mushroom,
Into a cloud of rust on this "A" planet of fools,

So who said, all good things will come to pass?
Like the beating of your heart within my head,
Who said, a love like ours would never last? Oh God...
Then she said, no more nukes, send flowers…send flowers…a dozen dead flowers…

Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah…
Yeah, Ah…

Constitution Song

Written By: Troy Eck

Bring me the Constitution,
Bring me the Constitution,
Bring me the Constitution,
Yeah.

In a world of open minds,
She would smile off the attention with words from her eyes,
As we sit and talk about life and love and all things unseen,
Under a glowing cherry tree,

Whispering away the avenue,
She counts summer’s flowers for a New York afternoon,
Concerned, not with the weather, steals a breath of my tea,
As “The Times” outlines the state of our country,
Oh as I, run my, fingers all through your hair,
This conversation is my…

Talked to your father just the other day,
He said I had better make you happy…
But Rose, there may come a time when I’ll have to go,
Off and fight a world war on some cold foreign shore,
Oh as I, run my, fingers all through your hair,
This conversation is my…

Oh but when will you be?
I don’t know.
Oh but when will you be?
I don’t know.

Oh God no…
I said fire!
I know…
No...
Troy Eck Lyrics
And so if I must bring the gun,
I’ll honor all of those who have fought and died for freedom.
All of those who were forced to die for freedom...

I know…I know…I know…I know…

Bring me the Constitution,
Bring me the Constitution,
Bring me the Constitution, Yeah.
Bring me the Constitution,
Bring me the Constitution;
Bring me the Constitution, Yeah.

Right now…
Right now…
Right now…
Right now...
