Lyrics

Bonham of the Pocket

Written By: Storytyme

She sold her soul left her rock n roll behind
Find your perfect time in the Bonham of the pocket
Don't need no pilot to fly this here rocket
Not sure where I'm going
But I'm getting there fast
Right here right now don't know
How long it will last

I know what I do may not be right for you
At the end of the night I know that I have been true

Ride this here baby all night long
Sing baby sing, won't you sing my song
Feel my groove, let your body move
Let's get it hot just don't ever let it stop

I can't find what I'm looking for
in something that's been done before

The Devil’s tools at her fingertips tonight
Find your perfect time in the Bonham of the pocket
Don't need no pilot to fly this here rocket
Not sure where I'm going
But I'm getting there fast
Right here right now don't know
How long it will last

You can cover the song
But don’t you copy the style
Keepin it real it's gonna last a while
No need to take it from the shelf
You can write it yourself

I can't find what I'm looking for
in something that's been done before

Life of a Clown

Written By: Storytyme

Searching for a purpose, I think it's in the circus

Bouncing on the trampolines and dancing with the hairy queens

Elephants and rings of fire, silly hats in the eye of the tiger...tonight we dance

Lit from above a tale of secret love
From under the tent comes a postcard unsent

The times inbetween that the crowd has not seen

From town to town is this life of a clown

Walking the line high above
Walking the line that I love

Tempting my fate as I go
Avoiding distractions below

Balancing on a ball
It makes no sense at all

Riding around in a circle on a bicycle
Never ending cycle
Feeling dizzy from being so dizzy
From town to town
Is this life of a clown

Patchwork Quilt

Written By: Storytyme

She speaks to me in language so foreign and so strange

I can't make out the meanings, but I recognize the names

Where did I come from, I want to know where I stand

I want to re-trace the footsteps before me in the sand

A family picture on the wall...a faded history down the hall

Does it matter much to you where you've been in your dreams?

Of those who came before you, a patchwork quilt with many seams

To know the rest of the story so many tales to tell

To know just how far from the tree the apple fell

So tell me if you can where lies this distant land?

The old man steps forward and shows me the key

A book with many faces oh so foreign to me

I will travel to the distant land some day to find out how it is I look this way

So tell me if you can, what lies beyond the sea

A land so far away, a place I thought I'd never see

A family picture on the wall...A faded history down the hall

So tell me if you can where lies this distant land?

Big ol Fish

Written By: Storytyme

My woman she drives me crazy
I’m never gonna get it done
I’m too darn lazy

Tied to the ocean
A love-hate potion
I let my heart do the thinking
I come back to drinking

Cold it froze the pond
But the big ol fish
They come back in the summer
To make it through the fire
The trees they grow much higher

Turning up that dirt
We live through that hurt
It’s so hard to define
Both sides of the mind

My woman she drives me crazy
I’m never gonna get it done
I’m too darn lazy

Cold it froze the pond
But the big ol fish
They come back in the summer
To make it through the fire
The trees they grow much higher

Moonshine

Written By: Storytyme

Along the ocean side of Milford Haven Wales
Rain pours down, it never fails
Landlocked ships when the tide is low
As I go I feel the flow so slow

Don’t drink the moonshine too fast
You’re supposed to sip it and let the flavor last
There is more than mud that you’re stepping in
So wipe your feet before you come on in
Don’t be scared of the rabbit hanging from the roof
There is life there is death all around you
Some of the keys won’t play like they used to
Because in the end...they don’t have to
They don’t have to
They don’t have to

It’s just a rabbit hanging from the roof
It’s just a rabbit hanging from the roof
It’s just a rabbit hanging

Travel the world in an automobile
Different surroundings change how I feel
I wonder roundabout till I figure it out
On a winding dirt road my story unfolds

Don’t drink the moonshine too fast
You’re supposed to sip it and let the flavor last
There is more than mud that you’re stepping in
So wipe your feet before you come on in
Don’t be scared of the rabbit hanging from the roof
There is life there is death all around you
Some of the keys won’t play like they used to
Because in the end...they don’t have to
They don’t have to
They don’t have to

It’s just a rabbit hanging from the roof
It’s just a rabbit hanging from the roof
It’s just a rabbit hanging

Walkin Upstream

Written By: Storytyme

I once sunk a boat on a river
You know I didn’t let it drag me down
I once sunk a boat on a river
You know I didn’t let it drag me down
Just around the bend on a sandbar
This is where my friends say they are
Just around the bend on a sandbar
This is where my friends say they are
Keep on walking upstream
Keep on walking, walking upstream
