IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE

Written By: Steve Roberts

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE

Youth is wasted on the young and wisdom on the old
With any luck you’ll learn that in between
All the things that matter most
Become whispers in the smoke
When you get old you’ll know just what I mean

CHORUS

In the Blink of an eye, It all just passes by
In the Blink of an eye it’s all gone
Said I wished I would of known all this when I was young
In the blink of an eye…..it’s all gone

At five she caught her first fish, and then I realized
I blinked an eye and she’d already grown
And know she’s got her own life and I’m all here alone
In the blink of an eye she’d all grown

CHORUS

And now I’m old and sore and gray, the memories start to fade away
It seems like I was young just yesterday
All the things that mattered most
Become whispers in the smoke
So make the best of every special day

Bridge
In the Blink of an eye, 10,000 reasons why
Don’t know what you’ve been missin
In the Blink of an eye, just look up to the sky
And look and learn and listen

Solo Lead

Youth is wasted on the young and wisdom on the old
With any luck you’ll learn that in between
All the things that matter most
Become whispers in the smoke
When you get old you’ll know just what I mean

With any luck you’ll learn that in between
Lookin back it all seems like a dream

Be With You Again

Written By: Steve Roberts

Be With You Again

My time has past its time for me to go
But there’s some things I’d like for you to know
My smile’s so wide I’m grinning ear to ear
No need to cry, stop wasting all those tears

CHORUS

I feel the Wind in my hair
I see the sky from on high
I’m touching clouds there flying….all around

Feel the warmth of my love
Tasting life from up above
I can see you now; I’ll be with you again

Time is only measured by mankind
15 years a lifetime left behind
I think I knew it all right from the start
True happiness and love came from my heart

Cause, I feel the Wind in my hair
I see the sky from on high
I’m touching clouds there flying….all around

Feel the warmth of my love
I’m tasting life from up above
I can see you now; I’ll be with you again

I am sorry that we could not say goodbye
No worries now, love life you’ve got to try
Said, “I got it now” and someday so shall you
Beginning like the spring so fresh and new

CHORUS

I can see you now; I’ll be with you again
Repeat X 3

1st Verse
Well I think about you before I go to sleep
And dream about you a love I cannot keep
I wake up in the morning. With you on my….mind

And I go on through the day with you on my mind
Tryin to forget, leave myself behind
But dreams call to fools, like me….to…night

CHORUS

Well I’m feelin down and blue without you
Always on my mind,…..its so true
I wish you….would be mine….to…night

2nd Verse
Have you ever known a love that cannot be described
With thoughts that are imprisoned and cannot be denied
Thought without a future,…..just starry ….eeeeyes
Have you ever loved someone from the bottom of your soul
Whose smiles all you wanted, and laughter made you whole
Reminders of our dreams, we can see to…night

CHORUS

3rd Verse
Have you ever heard the wind, it’s cryin can’t you see
Whispering our hopes and secret fantasies
Tells another story, differently to….me
Well I’ll go on through this life with this locked up in my heart
Desires so suppressed, thoughts I cannot part
My Love for you, I cannot deny, but…..why
CHORUS X 2

1st Verse
My Momma said I was no good in school
I broke every single golden rule
Spent my whole life a selfish fool, using all the Devils tempting tools
Wish I could just start over again

Chorus
Said, I fell down on my knees a beggin at the doorstep of my Lord
I threw my life away a livin then dyin by the sword
I spent my whole life a sinnin, the Devils starrin at me grinnin
Oh Lord please just let me in

2nd Verse
I know that it just does not seem right
To spare me Lord since I have seen the light
He’s gripping on my soul so tight, as I begin to loose my sight
Wish I could just start over again

Chorus

3rd Verse
Daddy said I never was no good
He drank till dawn just like I knew I would
I never did the things I knew I should
Wish I could just start over again

Chorus
4th Verse
Said I beg you Lord for another chance
The Demons circle round me while they dance
As they begin to do their chants, and planning my tortured romance
Wish I could just start over again

Said, I spent my whole life not prayin, the Devils starrin at me sayin
Oh Lord please don’t let him in
Never should of spent my life in Sin
Wish I could just start over again

1st Verse
My bed cold and empty, so sad since you been gone
It didn’t have to be this way….for us to just move on
Our love should of just been enough…don’t matter who’s to blame
Cause in the end what’s gone is gone…It all seems so insane

CHORUS
I got an empty bed, but my heart is full of pain
And I don’t know if ill ever….be with you again
Said…It don’t feel right…to feel so empty now
I wished we could of done what’s right to make it work somehow

2nd Verse
Our house is not a home no more and things just aren’t the same
I sit here waiting for the door….to open once again
I drink myself on through the night to help me with the pain
But in the end what’s gone is gone, it’s driving me insane

Lord, I don’t know why we do this, I cannot tell you why
Don’t wanna start all over, don’t want to say Goodbye

(JAM)

3rd Verse
My bed cold and empty, so sad since you been gone

CHORUS
I got an empty bed, but my heart is full of pain

CHORUS
Look at me why can’t you see
I’m your past please look at me
To see what your future ----- was before
It’s a plague for all mankind----will I get left behind

1st Verse
Your Religion, my Religion, no Religions right enough
To make us feel, we gotta kill and make us always fight
I promise you----This is Not Gods will
Your Government, my Government, no Governments is right enough
To keep us poor and close the door, we all know its not right
I promise you----This is Not our will

CHORUS

2nd Verse
We’ve got our Nukes, You’ve got your Nukes, we’ve opened up a door
We cannot close, because of those who’ve done it all before
I promise you----This is Not Gods will
The Corporate greed, financial need where Power is a must
Intoxicated with desire to rule all over us
I promise you----We’ve all had our fill

CHORUS

3rd Verse
Your Religion, my Religion, no Religions right enough
To make us feel, we gotta kill and make us always fight
I promise you----This is Not Gods will
Your Government, my Government, no Governments is right enough
To keep us poor and close the door, we all know its not right
I promise you----This is Not our will

1st Verse
Lookin for a simpler time, not that long ago
In a place we left behind, wish it wasn’t so
People had respect and grace, and dignity we know
The Devils spitting in our face, It’s his un-holy show

CHORUS
We’re Going Forward In Reverse
Said I’m runnin from a curse
To a simpler time
I gotta make it back, before I lose my mind

2nd Verse
Our words and thoughts would mean a lot, a handshake was a deal
Now it seems like we’ve forgot, to selfish to be real
No moral values we uphold, where everything’s all right
Cold and bold our souls all sold, I see the end in sight

CHORUS

3rd Verse
Listen up and hear me now, to what I have to say
Hollywood will show you how, laughing as they play
Their Kings and Queens all burning down, just watch them as they prey
Whispering ashes surround, Lord what a price to pay

CHORUS
