Lyrics

number nine

Written By: anitakeys

I left my dreams
out in the Ocean,
sang every plea
out to the Sea.
I put my faith in Open Water,
pinned all my hopes
on things bluegreen.
moon after moon
goes drifting by,
still I wait here
for her reply.
(waiting for the water's reply)

had my eyes on the road
and my brain in my purse-
likely I'll lose more parts soon...

I miss my dreams
I miss the Ocean
still singin' pleas(e)
out to the Seas
I found my Faith
down by the water
can't help but hope for some bluegreen,
need some bluegreen!

Serenade of the Sky

Written By: anitakeys/Anita Herczog

walk through the park
past the sunset, to dark,
miss the boat, miss the mark,
that's the way that it goes.
run through the streets
passing blocks of concrete
Mother Nature's defeat-
that's the way that it goes.
follow the sound
circling around
follow the song on a breeze passing by,
sly as a sin
pulling you in
into the soft serenade of the sky,
follow the sound
circling around
down to the place
where a dream passes by,
sly as a sin
pulling you in
into the night serenade of the sky,
serenade of the sky.

butterflies

Written By: anitakeys/Anita Herczog

I want nothing more than
you with me
we can fly away together-
we have wings!
we are butterflies, my friend-
we have wings,
we can fly away together-
we have wings.
I found mine inside this blue piano,
I found mine
mine were hiding in this blue piano,
I found mine.
we have wings,
I found mine,
we have wings,
I found mine...
butterflies,
butterflies!

Song In My Head

Written By: anitakeys

I've got a song in my head
walkin down the street
a song in my head
every time we meet
there's a song in my head
singin somethin sweet-
a song in my head, yeah,
a song in my head.
there's a song in my head
like my own heartbeat
a song in my head
when I'm tryin to sleep
there's a song in my head
guess it's on repeat-
a song in my head, yeah,
a song in my head.
singin bump, bump, bump, ba-dah...
walkin, workin, waitin in line
song is singin all of the time
wakin up, or layin me down
song is spinnin around and 'round and 'round and 'round.
there's a song in my head
beggin for release
a song in my head
won't you take her please?
this song in my head
now it's yours to keep,
a song in your head, yeah,
a song in your head,
singin bump, bump, bump, ba-dah!
