Lyrics

Make a Good Thing

Written By: Lonnie Sigman

We all want the same thing,
for the heart's in our life,
Work hard everyday
sometimes a compromise
Tho many roads we travel
sometimes deep in strife,
The heart is the real thing
for directions in our lives

*So make a good thing
for your sake baby
Yes make a good thing,
...for your direction

Many times I caught myself
deep within a sigh
Holdin' my head,
I started to cry
When brick ways call you
just go crash them down,
In your undertakings,
just listen to the sound
*
So when you go travelin'
yeah travelin' in your mind
Remember that inside,
there is a light that always shines
And serious situations
if you grow attached
Will lead you away
from your own dirrected tasks
*

Flying Plates

Written By: Lonnie Sigman

I have been broken down,
one two many times
And I have spoken,
he worst things coming from my mind
* But you and I, we break it all down
..feels likeflying plates and saucers,
...off the ground

As the moon turns to melting cheese,
And all the big cats, jump down from their burning trees
It's just the time,
for you and me to see
It's what we do right now,
that plants tomorrows trees
******
I have been broken down ,
one two many times
And I have spoken,
the worst things coming from my mind
But now's the time,
for all of us to see
It's what we do right now,
to bring tomorrow to it's knees
*******
