good luck

"good luck" © t-bird magera

i got a lot of questions
some answers nobody needs
i got a lot of questions
say won't ya help me please
won't ya help me please
cause i got somewhere i'm goin
don't know where yet
somewhere i think i'd like to meet you
have you been there yet?
have you been there yet?

my momma, she's a daisy
a daisy in the sand
she said be home by 8 o'clock
or don't come home again
never goin home again
my daddy's hands are clean
he's always on the desk machine
whistling for weekend's rest
said son do your best
i'm always doin my best

i heard there's a feeling
a feeling to forget, a screaming loose
all consciousness, but i haven't felt that yet
never have felt that yet
so if you got something to pray to
then you got something to save you
better check your back before you genuflect
because someone is standin when you kneel,
always someone standin when you kneel

so i hopped on down the road
i was thumbing 90 west
when a coughing truck picked me up
off to the sunset we went
just another fella heading west
he said son what're you looking for
i said god, mountains, peace and love
he squealed the tires, slammed the truck
and he just said good luck
he just said good luck

expected

"expected" © t-bird magera

what was it you expected
a big bouquet of balloons
maybe you were misdirected
or was that some hullabaloo
did you hold yourself up high today
did you betray yourself in anyway
was that the gut's honest truth or
something i said
what was it you expected

i tip my hat to you all the time
what you doing with a face so kind
curl yourself up i'll bring you food
whatever you want is sure to make me feel good
if you get up every morning and pray
do your answers ever say stay the hell away
who is it that's really in question
what was it you expected

did you get caught up on a oneway track
can't you see you passed the comeback
were you saying something sounded phony
do you think i'd sing this shit for the money
did you hold yourself up high today
did you betray yourself in anyway
was that the gut's honest truth
or something i said
why you feel so rejected

"surfin'" (girls on the sidewalk crashin' cars on the street) © t-bird magera

girls on the sidewalk
crashin cars on the street
she said you don't look guilty to me
she wants to chase the world now
race on out of town,
feel the wind lift the beads in her hair

so we drove to the beach
for a magical retreat
where they say you gotta wait in line to see the sky
so we turned the car around
with the rag-top down,
we just needed some good music to see things to

we went back to the dunes
cause she was in the mood
all we got were 'no parking' signs
but we own the beach yea?
we own the street
we own the best part of tonight

she said fuck it
we'll just go surfin' at night for free
oh yea, all night go-go surfin'
at night for free

"sally"

show me the way
i'm undecided
so easily inspired
baby dance every night
be happy and kind

show me the way
i'm always runnin
short of something
full of nothing
fill me up with your love

show me the way
i;m up for flyin
i'm scared of heights
but i aint' scared of dying
gotta jump for life

c'mon world im ready for it
a princess in pigtails
riding rainbows in the sky

let every day begin as a mystery
every dream as big as a movie screen
hitch a ride-on momentum's sail

sally be the wind

rub your belly like your mama's belly
kiss my girls goodnight

goodnight sally

words on the highway

Written By: t-bird magera


"words on the highway"

i'm on the highway
words flying by me
in what state are you?
you want my soul
honey i don't know if there's room for two

dogtracking sideways, a frozen gutterball
just hold me
don't make me say it
ya know i like to save it
i love- rivers reflecting blue

don't say maybe
ya know that drives me crazy
please pick the lasso or the moon
i'll sing the verse
darlin you can scream the chorus
let's just stay in tune

words on the highway
always goin my way
is it nonsense or truth?
c'mon baby
you can be my lady
i'll be the river
you'll be the sky painted blue

"st anthony"

st anthony won't you find me again
the minutes might break but the days don't bend
and you were always wonderin what might've been
st anthony won't you find me again
the stone once skipped now settles in
among the lost objects you been collectin

been counting all my enemies, debts, and sins
i think i've seen hell
won't take much to impress me, heaven

and you were always wonderful
you were always the first to smile
