Lyrics

Song of Today

Written By: Pete Navarra

Don’t know how long I’ll be here
don’t think I’m comin back
Sun rises each morning, the needle hits a track
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

Should I stay in bed
dream of yesterday
Or plant my feet firmly and get up on my way
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

I believe that this is the only
time I’ll exist
So should I sit here lonely or embrace each thing as a gift
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

Sometimes when I listen I hear the Oboe’s chime
Makes me feel so sad
I almost want my time
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

I heard a car crash coming
I turned the other way
God that was close, but it was my choice anyway
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

Night time will come I know it
That’ll be my end
So I’m trippin along the song to the end

To get to this point
I had to climb a hill
It made me feel so tired one time it almost made me ill
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

I want my song to be Elvis
not a two bit side show
I’m gonna sing so loud
I’m gonna let you know
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

This is not the weather report
I have control
If I want it sunny my umbrella I shall fold
I’m trippin along the Song of Today
I’m trippin along the song on my way

I know that it’s comin
I don’t believe it’s true
So I’ll have another whiskey, better make it two
I trippin along the song to the end
I’m trippin along the song to the end

Into The West

Written By: Pete Navarra

Time to pack up
the world has dried up
Sand gathers at my feet
Take what you can
sell to the man
All you cannot carry

Into the west
two thousand miles
I will take my love
Into a dream
one never seen
To the place where the oranges grow

Across the red sand
You’ll dance with me
No devil will slow us down
Across the hot sand
Sun will blisters me
But I will shield my love

Dreams will wear thin
throats will burn dry
As we walk to the horizon on high
You’ll fight with me
crazed by the thirst
But I will give you my blood

You will fall down
but I’ll carry you
Across the never ending desert
Did we turn wrong
is the world made of sand
Should we have stuck with what we know

Across the red sand
You’ll dance with me
No devil will slow us down
Across the hot sand
Sun will blisters me
But I will shield my love

Got no strength left
back almost broke
Spirit burning like my throat
I dropped all things
all things but you
But that only caused our death

One with the sand
thing that destroyed us
We now rest in peace

Across the red sand
You’ll dance with me
No devil will slow us down
Across the hot sand
Sun will stir me
And together we shall be
