Lyrics

“Blue Shoes”

Written By: Scott Serkez

Left my home and my family
Headed out on the road
Far down south as Nashville
Far west as the coast
Back and forth, and up and down
Weary to the bone
So if you’re gonna judge me, mister
Won’t you put these blue shoes on

Funny what you see inside
When you look outside yourself
All these things that you thought were important
They just go up on the shelf
But little moments from your past come back
Shine like diamonds in your mind
Smiling faces that you passed in the hallway
Goodnight kisses that you left behind

All the world that I knew before
Lay crumbled on the road behind me
Standing at the ocean sure no one would ever even find me
Suddenly you’re standing there
Smiling eyes I know from somewhere
You must have come from heaven baby, and you’re such a fine sight to see

You found me where my soul
Was worn down to the bone
Weary from the road and sorrow
And having no place to call home
Well any stray can tell you love
Is found beyond tomorrow
Past that magic feeling of - no where left to go

Flower petals in my pocket
A flicker in my broken heart
Waking up to love around me
And I wonder how you are
Sweet young people how I love you
More than you could ever know
I’m sure you know it wasn’t you I was leaving
When I finally had to go

“There You Are”

Written By: Scott Serkez

Been around the world enough to know
Some people are real and some people are all for show
When skies are blue, you’ve got friends all over town
But look around again when the chips are down
Standing there with your finger in the air
Try’n to figure out where to go
All your fine feathered fair-weather friends have disappeared and gone

But whether I’m up or down, whenever I look around - yeah
There you are,
Yeah - there you are
A smile on your face,
A helping hand,
Love in your heart,
Best friend any man ever had
Yeah there you are
Yeah there you are

Seen a lot of pretty faces
Cover over empty spaces
It’s hard to love - with a heart of stone
Other people want to set you right
They keep on preaching but they’re so uptight
Sometimes religion just - ain’t got no soul
They want to tell you when you wrong or right
They want to tell you how to live your life
They’re selling diamonds while their handing you coal

But whether I’m up or down, whenever I look around yeah
There you are,
Yeah there you are

A smile on your face,
A helping hand,
Love in your heart,
Best friend any man ever had
Yeah there you are
Yeah there you are

“Grand Illusion”

Written By: Scott Serkez

Did I just awaken from a dream
Or did I just fall back asleep
Guess I’m waiting for the sun to shine
And burn these cobwebs from my life

And just like Alice in her wonderland
My eyes are opening
My world expands
And are we really us and them - and you and me
Or are we really one
In some grand illusion
Or are we really one
In a grand illusion

Well all these props are placed so perfectly
And keep us thinking we are living separately
A symphony of magic - a higher slight of hand
A game of hide and seek - with ordinary man

And just like Alice in her wonderland
Our eyes are opening
Our world expands
Are we really us and them - and you and me
Or are we really one
In some grand illusion
Are we really one
In this grand illusion

This life we’re living full of pleasure and of pain
From a distance must seem more and more just like a stage
And we are actors learning roles of love and hate
And every step we take solidifies our fate

But just like Alice in her wonderland
Our eyes are open now
Our world expands
And are we really us and them - and you and me
Or are we really one
In this grand illusion
Aren’t we really one
In this grand illusion
