Lyrics

Something Of Tomorrow

Written By: Ted & Thena Beam

Is there anything
On the other side
Of these burned out dreams
And my crumbling pride?

No, I didn’t leave home
With a backup plan
Now I’m left
With two tired hands

If you could let me know
Something of tomorrow
I won’t put up a fight
If you could let me know
Something of tomorrow
I’ll make it through the night

No I won’t complain
I know you have a plan
Even though
I don’t understand

And when the morning comes
I know you’ll still be there
Even though
I’m still nowhere

If you could let me know
Something of tomorrow
I won’t put up a fight
If you could let me know
Something of tomorrow
I’ll make it through the night

Wherever you are I will go
Whatever you want I will do
Wherever you are I will go
Whatever you want from me

If you could let me know
Something of tomorrow
I won’t put up a fight
If you could let me know
Something of tomorrow
I’ll make it through the night

California

Written By: Thena & Ted Beam

I am on my way to someplace sunnier
I am saying goodbye
Everything is gonna be so much better
When I finally arrive

California! 
Everything under the sun
California!
Where you're beautiful and young
California!
Where everything turns to gold

Bright lights, billboards, bad boys down on the boulevard
I don't want to sleep
Life's a weekend, Monday morning never comes
That's what you want to believe

California! 
Everything under the sun
California!
Where you're beautiful and young
California!
Where everything turns to gold

I have seen the rainbow's end
And I have kissed the promised land
And if things don't go as I planned
At least then I’ll know
When to hold a dream
And when to let it go

California! 
Everything under the sun
California!
Where you're beautiful and young
California!
Where everything turns to gold

Jesse's Song

Written By: Ted Beam

I played hide and go seek all by myself
I sought after heaven but hid in hell
And it makes no sense ‘cause I know full well
There’s only one place I long to dwell

I spend most of my days trying to outrun
The arm of the law and the setting sun
And I can’t say that I’m proud of what I’ve done
But sometimes I find myself still reaching for my gun

Shaun O’Malley, first man that I killed
Thought he could outdraw me, so I put him in Boot Hill
When the train passes, I feel the devil’s pull
Should I risk it all for a shot at the rich man’s gold?

Jesse please
Put down your gun
Your brother’s dead
And all for a bottle of rum

So many little things are taking my time
I can’t let these worries get the best of my mind
And though the Lord keeps givin’ me what I need
He’s sure got a way of bringing me to my knees

Katherine the gypsy took me by my hand
Said if I gave her one night, she’d turn me into a man
But she broke her promise when she broke my heart
She only left me standing right back, at the start

Jesse please
Follow me
Don’t you believe
I’ll take care of everything
- I’ll take care of everything
