Catch Me When I Fall

Written By: Craig McNair

CATCH ME WHEN I FALL

I know exactly just where I’ve been, but I keep on falling back again
To the same old traps and the same old lies, I whitewash, and I justify
The addictions, as fiction, it’s a losing game that I play
With such conviction that I even fool myself, but mama didn’t raise no fool
I've gotta look inside, I've gotta find what’s real, get a little remedy So I can start to heal, get back in line, and maybe I can even get it right this time

I breathe…but I get no air, I run…but I can’t get where
I’m going to, like a treadmill, on and on and I ain’t getting anywhere at all
And then I fall, but I pick myself right back up off the ground
Then I take a look around, I’ve gotta find out what took me down
And I keep that memory in my head so if I ever come back this way again
next time around it wont be the same, I’m gonna beat the odds, gonna win the game

I can’t seem to find my way…I’m going in circles
I feel like I’m blind…I can’t see myself at all
I keep playing the same old game…with the same conclusion
I need someone to help me break the chains and catch me when I fall
Catch me baby…catch me when I fall…catch me baby

If you don’t know where you’re going…take a look at where you’ve been
If you don’t know where you’re going…take a look at where you’ve been

I get self righteous, and vain, I become immune to all the pain
I get wrapped up with myself and I can’t hear anybody else
I find that the more I struggle, the more I see that the only answer is to find the key
To transcendence…revelation…maybe take a little vacation from myself
Liberation…put me on the shelf
It’s like being at war with ten of me, I’ve gotta quit being my own worst enemy

I can’t seem to find my way…I’m going in circles
I feel like I’m blind…I can’t see myself at all
I keep playing the same old game…with the same conclusion
I need someone to help me break the chains and catch me when I fall
Catch me baby…catch me when I fall…catch me baby

If you don’t know where you’re going…take a look at where you’ve been
If you don’t know where you’re going…take a look at where you’ve been

Right Now

Written By: Bryan Levier Logan

RIGHT NOW

Right now, Right now, Right now,
this is the time for elation, examination
explain true virtues to the nation, Right now
trust is must if you fuss you will rust, you will rust, rust, rust, rust, rust, rust
(harmonica solo)

Right now, Right now, Right now, Right now
backstab hand shake misguided mistake
thorough denial fire in the trial right now
relation is a must right now
knowledge is a trust
misguided thoughts of duality
live in false data of reality
(harmonica solo)

Right now people are suffering
Right now poeple like you and me
Right now people are suffering
Right now when the gun go blam-blam...bang!

Right now, Right now
right now is the time to bust... away
somebody come and tell me what has gone wrong
I just know the better is this song
we can all just get along
everybody listen to my song

Right now, Right now (repeat verse 1 and 2)
(harmonica solo)

Right now, people are suffering
Right now, people like you and me
Now, people are suffering
Right now, people like you and me
NOW, PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING
RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME
NOW, PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING
RIGHT NOW...

Broke

Written By: Craig McNair

BROKE

I’ve got no pennies in my loafers
And I’ve been through all the sofas… I’m broke…flat broke
The banker that I trusted
sad my balance was adjusted…down to zero…I’m busted
My momma used to rave, “son you really ought to save”
But I didn’t think she meant it…so I took it all and spent it

I’m broke…I’m broke…It’s got me in a pickle, I aint even got a nickle
I’m broke…I’m broke…money? don’t have any, I aint even got a penny
I’m broke…I’m broke…won’t somebody render me a little legal tender

I was goin through my coat
With a small degree of hope there’d be some cash…stashed
There was nothin in the pocket
So I took it down to hock it…I was nonstop…to the pawnshop
I got there just in time, and I showed the man my tweed
He offered me a dime…and I was broke, so I agreed

I was feelin pretty good
Cause now I had a dime…
and were talkin cash…all mine
So I look into the gutter and what do I discover ?…It’s a buck…
what luck...
I didn’t have a pocket, so I had nowhere to stick it
I didn’t want to lose it…so I bought a lotto ticket

I’m broke…I’m broke…It’s got me in a quandary, I can’t even do my laundry
I’m broke…I’m broke…money? don’t have any, I aint even got a penny
I’m broke…I’m broke…and did I mention I can’t even pay attention

When I woke up from my slumber
I checked the winnin numbers…and they were mine…all nine
So I went and got my money, and I put it in my sock
went to the pawnshop
and got my jacket out of hock
And now I’m drinkin French liquor with a champagne kicker
And I’m lightin my cigars with hundred dollar bills

I’m rich…I’m rich…I traded my vehicle for a Harley motorcicle
I’m rich…I’m rich…money? I’ve got plenty, let me know if you need any
I’m rich…I’m rich…there’s people comin round I haven’t seen for
twenty years

Lola

Written By: Craig McNair

LOLA

I took a ride inside my mind I saw Lola hiding there behind a dream
In a cloud of space and time, so close and yet so far…
I heard her calling out to me
The melody of some long forgotten song
The universe was in her eyes and my world was in her smile…

I’m gonna win you over… If it’s the last thing that I do
I’m gonna keep on knockin till you let me in… I can’t forget you Lola

I’m gonna be your daddy… make all your dreams come true
I’m gonna steal your heart like a thief in the night
I only think about you

There’s just one thing that I want…there’s just one thing that I need
There’s just one thing that I want…

I’m gonna love you baby… Until the sun turns black and cold
I’m gonna keep on writing in the book of love until our story is told

I’m gonna be your daddy… make all your dreams come true
I’m gonna steal your heart like a thief in the night
I only think about you

I’m gonna win you over… If it’s the last thing that I do
I’m gonna keep on knockin till you let me in…I can’t forget you Lola

There’s just one thing that I want…there’s just one thing that I need
There’s just one thing that I want…
