Tap of Sand

Written By: David Orewiler

TRAP OF SAND ©2011 David Orewiler

Verse 1
The rubber scorched the runway for a hundred yards or so
The truth began to hit me and they told us where to go
I came here of my own free will and no one forced my hand
One by one the boots crunched on to unforgiving sand

Chorus
It blurs my vision and hurts my eyes
Pain burns my footsteps; stings my thighs
Gripping tighter with each hand
Save me from this Trap of Sand
Lord, save me from this Trap of Sand

Verse 2
There’s no place I can hide from here. No place for me to dodge
My feelings blend together now like weathered camouflage
I can’t escape the shadow of the doubt beyond the hope
So clinging to the faith I have I find the strength to cope

Chorus
It blurs my vision and hurts my eyes
Pain burns my footsteps; stings my thighs
Gripping tighter with each hand
Save me from this Trap of Sand
Lord, save me from this Trap of Sand

Bridge
I didn’t travel back alone. But I was the one who made it home.
A hero never says goodbye but salutes the ones who closed their eyes

Verse 3
I’m safely resting home again. Got my medals to frame
And I think on my memories and not on who’s to blame
None of us come back the same. But I still paid my dues.
Small town soldiers just like me are footnotes in the news

Chorus
It blurs my vision and hurts my eyes
Pain burns my footsteps; stings my thighs
Gripping tighter with each hand
Save me from this Trap of Sand
Lord, save me from this Trap of Sand

Closing Chorus
You cleared my vision and healed my eyes.
I can see the reasons why
You carried me with your calloused hands
Saved me from the Trap of Sand
Saved me from the Trap of Sand
Trap of Sand
You saved me from the Trap of Sand

Quick Forever

Written By: David Orewiler

QUICK FOREVER

VERSE 1
Storm clouds hanging around my head. The pain still fresh in my head.
I reach to take you close to me. I see an empty shadow instead.
Now that you’ve taken everything the heartache’s still fresh in sight.
My emotions beg for nothing more than a peaceful sleep in the night.

Chorus
That was a quick forever Just another hurried goodbye.
That was a quick forever You left me with only a sigh.

VERSE 2
You stood there holding my hand that day. I was sure that you were the one.
There was no imagination then. No illusions under the sun.
Then you boldly, coldly stepped away from commitments not long ago.
What was said then just doesn’t mean a thing. What was promised was nothing but show.

Chorus
That was a quick forever Just another hurried goodbye.
That was a quick forever You left me with only a sigh.

VERSE #
The jet flies high in the morning sky. A new hope floats in my head.
It’s another year later and I feel safe with another new lover instead.
And I’ll give up everything I own to forget mistakes of the past.
And I’ll give up everything I own to have a love that will last.

Chorus
That was a quick forever Just another hurried goodbye.
That was a quick forever You left me with only a sigh.

That was a quick forever, Love.

That was a quick forever.

Highway Romance

Written By: David Orewiler

HIGHWAY ROMANCE © 2009 David Orewiler

Verse 1
Bumper to bump the world’s at a crawl
I’m listening to country. Some guy with a drawl
He tells me to speed up in the fast lane.
But it’s crowded around me. It’s really insane

Chorus
It’s a highway romance. It’s high time for a very first chance
To make a move from behind the wheel
Take the next exit and let’s make a deal

Verse 2
I see her flashing a cute little smile
I pull up beside her and flirt for a while
She gives me a nod and an obvious wink
Perhaps we can hook up. What else could I think?

Chorus
It’s a highway romance. It’s high time for a very first chance
To make a move from behind the wheel
Take the next exit and let’s make a deal

Bridge
My imagination took over-- I invested so much
Now it looks like I’m out of luck
We had it going just you and me
But you left me for a trucker--It’s a pity for me

Verse 3
Now there’s a flash of color just beyond my door
Another highway honey barely twenty-four
Her hair is flowing with the heavy breeze
Oh please pull over, Oh come on now, please!

Chorus
It’s a highway romance. It’s high time for a second chance
Will you make your move from behind the wheel?
Take the next exit --Let’s make a deal

It’s a highway romance

Sideways

Written By: David Orewiler

SIDEWAYS © 2009 David Orewiler

Verse 1

The clock blinks a number, another minute is erased

I stare at it blankly. It has such a homely face.

The space that’s around me with invisible air

Silently threatens the time that I can’t spare.

Chorus

‘Cause sideways things are strangely odd, but familiar all the same.

I never play by common rules. I reinvent the game

Vertical’s overrated and I reflect on something new

It makes me very happy when I’m sideways here with you.

It makes me very happy when I’m sideways here with you.

Verse 2

December flips over, one more year’s replaced

I ponder it pensively. It seems like such a waste

To reach for some substance and feel nothing there

I grasp for some meaning and dream someone cares

Chorus

‘Cause sideways things are strangely odd, but familiar all the same.

I never play by common rules. I reinvent the game

Vertical’s overrated and I reflect on something new

It makes me very happy when I’m sideways here with you.

It makes me very happy when I’m sideways here with you.

Verse 3

So I’ll keep on resting, just prone here on the floor

Till I hear the creaking of another open door.

Perhaps I will stand up since I saw the light

But I like my vantage point so I’ll lay for the night.

Bridge

‘Cause sideways things are wonderful. A new perspective from the bland

You can linger with me while I gently kiss your hand.

Chorus

‘Cause sideways things are strangely odd, but familiar all the same.

I never play by common rules. I reinvent the game

Vertical’s overrated so I reflect on something new

It makes me very happy when I’m sideways here with you

Vertical’s overrated and I reflect on something new

It makes me really happy when I’m sideways here with you

So come and lay beside me, enjoy my different view

I want you to be happy as we contemplate the view

Sideways, sideways we enjoy the view

Sideways, sideways we enjoy the view

Just me, just me, just me

and You.

Just me, just me, just me

Just Another Dreamer

Written By: David Orewiler

JUST ANOTHER DREAMER © 2000 David Orewiler

Verse 1
I’m just another dreamer in a local a band.
I’m just another dreamer workin’ on my plan.
Last night we were so strung out. Layin’ down and tired.
Tomorrow we’ll be sold out and make my brother proud.

Chorus
If there’s a singer’s lottery it may as well me
For somewhere there’s a golden disc. But where’s it at for me?

Verse 2
The words are often hidden for those who drink their beer.
Those who linger sideways while others come to cheer.
That woman’s got a look on me. I see her glittered eye.
Did she catch my act last week or did she just stop by?

Chorus
If there’s a singer’s lottery it may as well me.
For somewhere there’s a golden disc. But where’s it at for me?

Verse 3
I’m looking for a thank you. Music’s thoughts out loud.
I looking for a toucher from a face out in the crowd.
I’m just another dreamer playing in a band.
We are all just dreamers in a foreign land.

I’m just another dreamer
I’m just another dreamer
I’m just another dreamer
I’m just another
Just another
Dreamer

I’m just another dreamer
I’m just another dreamer

Another He

Written By: David Orewiler

ANOTHER HE (OR ME) (pop or country; upbeat—female version)

© David Orewiler 2009

Verse 1
You claim you hung out with another guy
Yeah, I’ll admit that it was not a lie
I guess I’ve never seen the likes of you
Now with your bags in hand you bid adieu

I never thought I’d see the day
When I’d see you choose to swing the other way
A dramatic change right before my eyes….
There’s a transformation much to my surprise

Chorus
So if it isn’t me and not another she
Then it must be you and another he
So choose right now what it’s gonna be?
Is it gonna be another he or me?

Verse 2
I know that style is the latest fashion
Can he provide fireworks and passion?
It’s like a square peg in a round hole
But I’m not sure who’s the peg and who’s the whole

It was great for years. Now why the change?
I can barely see your life is rearranged
You broke my back. I guess that’s it
‘Cause where you go from here I really can’t predict

Chorus
So if it isn’t me and not another she
Then it must be you and another he
So choose right now what it’s gonna be?
Is it gonna be another he or me?

Bridge
It strange to me how the parts don’t fit
Since you’re keeping it up I guess that’s it (spoken)

Chorus
So if it isn’t me and not another she
Then it must be you and another he
So choose right now what it’s gonna be?
Is it gonna be another he or me?
