Lyrics

Temptation

Written By: Richy Farkas

Temptation

Here we are now
Look at the mess we’ve made
I’ve been runnin’ over you and
You been chasin’ me away
Forgiveness has been hastily denied
There’s no blame when you can’t
See past your own lies

I’m a thief blinded by his gold and
I would steel anything for you
You stole my heart long ago
But now you’re back at tempting me
Somebody help me please

Could have been more
Then a life that I once lived
Could have been that summer day
That never comes to an end
When I see you feelings come rushin’ in
I guess I’ll take the best of you and
Try not to give in

Boobalyboo

Written By: Richy Farkas

Boobalyboo

Sittin’ on this sandbox of mine
Day dreamin’ of you
Whatchin’ seagulls fly through the sky
They remind me of
My Boobalyboo

Wind blows sand into my eyes
Curl in a ball to take off a shoe
Arms gliddin’ through the sea
Polka dot fish remind me of
My Boobalyboo

Just like the day that falls for night
I will fall for you
Just like a rock that waits for life
I will wait for you

Sittin’ on top of the moon
Incredible stories of cows and balloons
They suck out the air, they sing really high
There stories remind me of
My Boobalyboo

And after long journeys with fish and balloons
There’s nothing more lovely than to come home to you
Seagulls in flight, cows lit by moonlight
Guidin’ me home to my Boobalyboo

They remind me of you.

Train the Young

Written By: Richy Farkas

Train The Young

I have no friends she says plainly
I’m spinnin’ myself down
Too much hostility
Too many just standin’ around
Oh but you will notice me
When time seizes to be
When the wind forgets to blow
Or the fish choke on the sea

I feel a change is close at hand
Angry tide might wash over
We must trust our fellow man
To train the young for when they’re older

The signs are flashing on the news
Billboards marketing us to lose
How can we make a wise decision
When we have nothing smart to choose
Oh so listen carefully
To the rustling of the leaves
They are begging you to stop
Spreading your disease

I feel a change is close at hand
Angry tide might wash over
We must trust our fellow man
To train the young for when they’re older

We can stand aside and watch the years go by
We can turn our cheeks and live our happy lies
Ignore the facts that Mother Nature provides
But you’d be setting a trap that we will pay the price for
So what’s your plan to just consume all that you can
Are we that blind that we will sacrifice all of mankind
Think about the earth don’t give her your cold shoulder
Think about her future and train the young for when they’re older

Before it’s over.
