Your Nobody

Written By: Greg Starkweather/Susan Pyle


Can you hear the call - when no one's there?

What is the voice like, is it devil-may-care?
,
Nonchalant or passe - or some kind of need

Is your nobody better than me?

Who holds your hand - when you're all alone,

Rubs your shoulders, makes you moan?

Can there be a feeling if you want there to be?

Is your nobody better than me?

I ask who keeps you warm - you say nobody

I ask who will give you alarm - you say nobody, nobody

Can you be alone - all your life? You say nobody, nobody, nobody

Have a guest over tonight - you say nobody

Go out and search the lights - with nobody, for nobody

Have a real decent life with your nobody

Your nobody, your nobody who's better than me

(instrumental lead)

I ask, who holds you tight - you say nobody

Who tucks you in late at night - you say nobody

Can you be alone - all your life? You say nobody, nobody, nobody

Can you talk to people - when no one's there?

Is your life fulfilled - being solitaire?

Like a flower in a garden - without a bee

Is your nobody better than me?

Is your nobody, your nobody better than me?

The Island Song

Written By: Greg Starkweather/Susan Pyle


If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you
Us all alone now on an island
Wouldn't be too bad a thing to do
Wild parrots and birds a-singin'
Monkeys through the palm trees a-swingin'
If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you

If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you
Us all alone now on an island
We'd never, ever have the blues
Don't like swimmin' in deep water
Eatin' fishy things I shouldn't ought-a
If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you

If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you
Us all alone now on an island
Eatin' a crab leg or two
Big ol' oysters and some pearls
Why don't we give it a whirl
If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you

If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you
Us all alone now on an island
In the middle of the ocean blue
Sleep on the beach, under the stars
See all the way to Mars
If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you

If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you
Us all alone now on an island
We'd play monkey see, monkey do
Monkey throw down that coconut
We'll eat that coconut up
If I was sittin' on an island
I'd like to be sittin' with you
I'd really like to sit with you

Under the Bridge

Written By: Greg Starkweather/Susan Pyle

(chorus) Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

Got friends here I never knew I had

Gotta half-pint of jack - under my hat

Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

No sir, livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

There's a mission on down the street

When I'm there, me they never mistreat

I gets breakfast, dinner and lunch

Sometimes I go there for brunch

Yo, sometimes I go there for brunch

They give me clothes, they're so kind

Talk to me, try to alter my mind

But I gets what they give and I leave

Sometimes a piece of pie up my sleeve

Yeah, sometimes a piece of pie up my sleeve

(chorus) Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

Got friends here I never knew I had

Gotta half-pint of jack - under my hat

Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

No sir, livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

There's always a bunch of kids around

They like to mess up, tear things down

They spray their graffiti - on the wall

Me, I gotta get up and clean it all

Yeah, I gotta get up and clean it all

Boys always out lookin' to fight

Get in trouble - way past midnight

Shootin' their guns - pullin' their knives

Ruin their bodies and lose their lives

Gonna ruin ther bodies and lose their lives

(chorus) Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

Got friends here I never knew I had

Gotta half-pint of jack - under my hat

Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

No sir, livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

I've had movie stars and some rock stars

Park down in front in their long black cars

They come up to me for a - quick look-see

Maybe catch on with some great epiphany

Maybe catch some great epiphany

I tell them it's not that I'm smart

Me 'n the next guy, you can't tell us apart

But I don't just stand there and pose

I hit 'em with this little bit of prose

Yeah, I hit 'em with this little bit of prose

(chorus) Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

Got friends here I never knew I had

Gotta half-pint of jack - under my hat

Livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

No sir, livin' under this bridge ain't so bad

Walkin' in the Garden

Written By: Greg Starkweather/Susan Pyle

(chorus) I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

Holdin’ your hand and smilin’ as we do

No cares in the world to make us blue

I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

There’ll be flowers everywhere

Fragrance of love in the air

Thorny plants and horny toads

Ain’t it really quite the show

(chorus) I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

Holdin’ your hand and smilin’ as we do

No cares in the world to make us blue

I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

There’s a grasshopper a-jumpin’ high

Maybe thinks he can really fly

He’ll catch a breeze and fly on by

And we’ll be watchin’, you and I

(chorus) I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

Holdin’ your hand and smilin’ as we do

No cares in the world to make us blue

I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

You can hear the sounds of birds and bees

Playin’ tag a-flyin’ through the trees

Take our time and walk around real slow

‘Cause there ain’t no better place to go

(chorus) I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

Holdin’ your hand and smilin’ as we do

No cares in the world to make us blue

I’m a-walkin’ in the garden with you

Down in the Mine

Written By: Greg Starkweather/Susan Pyle


(bridge)A picture of my love next to my heart

Gonna get me through this wretched night

The picture of my love - In my pocket

I'd look at it if I had some light

I just touch it and know it's there

The shine of her smile, the wave of her hair

I just touch it and know she's there - By my heart

Right next to - my heart

(chorus) They're comin' for me in the mornin'

They're comin' for me and my pals

They're comin ' for me in the mornin'

I's just sittin' here waitin' - Down in the mine

Way down, deep in the mine

You know, they're comin' to get us

And soon as they break through

Fresh air and all-a that good stuff

Will shake us from all of these blues

These trapped - down - in - the - mine blues

I heard a rumble above us

Then it grew quiet and dark

That's when this little ole job

Became more than a walk in the park

Do anything to be walkin' in the park

(chorus) They're comin' for me in the mornin'

They're comin' for me and my pals

They're comin ' for me in the mornin'

I's just sittin' here waitin' - Down in the mine

Way down, deep in the mine

Something smells funny down here

Makin' water flow from my eyes

With all-a this coughin' and cryin'

What I'd give to see blue skies

Just for a glimpse - of blue skies

Everything is quiet and still

No one dares give out a yell

I can barely hear them breathing

This must be what it's like in Hell

So far down, we must be in Hell

(bridge)A picture of my love next to my heart

Gonna get me through this wretched night

The picture of my love - In my pocket

I'd look at it if I had some light

I just touch it and know it's there

The shine of her smile, the wave of her hair

I just touch it and know she's there - By my heart

Right next to - my heart

(chorus) They're comin' for me in the mornin'

They're comin' for me and my pals

They're comin ' for me in the mornin'

I's just sittin' here waitin' - Down in the mine

Way down, deep in the mine

Dance on a Cloud

Written By: Greg Starkweather/Susan Pyle

(chorus)Can we dance - on a cloud?

Will our feet touch down?

Will we fall to the ground?

Or will we stay - on the cloud,

With great roars from the crowd,

Can it be such a proud,

Such a moment - let's dance on a cloud

Pick a cloud - any one will do

A cloud here or there or over there too

Can a cloud be strong enough for two?

To dance as we will

To dance as we do

Let's dance on a cloud

(chorus)Can we dance - on a cloud?

Will our feet touch down?

Will we fall to the ground?

Or will we stay - on the cloud,

With great roars from the crowd,

Can it be such a proud,

Such a moment - let's dance on a cloud

Fluffy ole cloud will hold what we need

Take some champagne, some bread, some caviar, some seed

Get that ole cloud to rain like we bleed

To dance as we will

To dance as we please

Let's dance on a cloud


(chorus)Can we dance - on a cloud?

Will our feet touch down?

Will we fall to the ground?

Or will we stay - on the cloud,

With great roars from the crowd,

Can it be such a proud,

Such a moment - let's dance on a cloud

If sunlight is everywhere, no clouds in sight

Then we'll dance on a sunbeam

We will dance on the light

We can try to dance on the light

Wait, there's a cloud - let's dance on a cloud - let's dance on a cloud

Wait, there's a cloud - a fluffy ole cloud - let's dance on a cloud
