Biography

Tim Hirons is an accomplished singer/songwriter and entertainer. What sets him apart is his ability to take a small one-man show and dramatically capture the attention of audiences large or small. His skills on the guitar and keys are top-notch. His vocals are clean and powerful. His well-crafted songs are creatively presented in a thought provoking collection of folk, funk, rock, and blues.

Tim's work has been compared to the craftiness of John Prine, the rhythm of Paul Simon, the guitar playing of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jerry Garcia, the piano playing of Jerry Lee Lewis, and the vocal stylings of Glenn Phillips. Years of writing and performing have helped Tim mold these influences into a unique sound and style capable of impressing even the toughest of critics.

Lyrics

Diamond

Written By: Tim Hirons

The day was long, she wanted a baby
All he could say was I don't know, maybe
It's all in me, but I don't know where to find it
Maybe tomorrow I will try to unwind it
Picking through pieces high and low
Then I'll wrap it in a box and I'll give it to you slow

I am shining like a Diamond
You are glowing like a new child
The buzz is bigger than a bee hive
And my thoughts are clearer than a blue day
Now, you found gold in the ocean
I stay clear of the sunshine
We keep thinking 'bout reasons
Why this might drag us under
Will it ever change I wonder?

Oh, I like words but you like the rhythm
He can't dance but the music is in him
Feet are movin' waiting for the band
And memories they won't try to understand
To some it don't mean a thing
Still the guitar plays and the singer will sing...

Missile

Written By: Tim Hirons

Missile, someday we'll learn
Tell me how to get along
Show me where the blue skies go
Rocket, rock with me
Roaring over jealousy
Hey hey, oh another day is gone,
gone, gone

(chorus)
Come on, baby don't let me down
Crazy as the dream we're in
Wild as the river that flows
I know we can stay young and free
Just love like you do to me
And listen when you're eyes are closed

Missile, of you we sing
Tell me, anything
That might make me understand
Rockin', jammin' to the radio
Love me, baby nice and slow
Hey hey, oh another day is gone, gone, gone

(chorus)

Music, lights up the sky
Rockin' to a lullaby
Baby, stand up tall and say
Hold on, I can see
Things ain't like they used to be
Hey hey, oh another day is gone,
gone, gone

(chorus)

You and the Morning Sun

Written By: Tim Hirons

Well, I guess things could be better
But I guess things could be bad
I walk out in the sunshine
And I don't feel so bad
'Cause I've got friends, oh yeah
And they are lots of fun
And I've got you
And the morning sun

Sometimes you can feel down
Sometimes you need to get away
Your memories start to smolder
And slowly fade away
But we got time, oh yeah
When the fire is done
'Cause I've got you
And the morning sun

No I wouldn't say this road brings me down
It just feels long
by the time you come around

Another city light is shining in my room
I turned on my radio, but nothing was in tune
But we'll be fine, oh yeah
There's no need to run
'Cause I've got you
And the morning sun

You Can Count On Me

Written By: Tim Hirons

You can count on me
When you’re radio’s broke
You can count on me
For a laugh a smile or a joke
Anything you want
I’ll never ask you why
You can count on me in the morning
You can count on me in the daytime
I couldn’t believe this take me down
You draw me in the water
And leave me there to drown
Just like I knew all along
You’re not a puzzle for my boredom
Not a player for this song
Can I buy another smile for you today
I cannot find the words
And I know no other way
We could have another glass of foolish wine
And everything would be
Everything would be just fine
Oh yeah
You can count on me
When you’re radio’s broke
You can count on me
For a laugh a smile or a joke
Anything you want
I’ll never ask you why
You can count on me in the morning
Or in the daytime

Sweet Little Missy

Written By: Tim Hirons

Sweet Little Missy, tell me do I got what you need?
He left you all alone once again
When I see you standing, with your eyes down to your feet
I wonder how long before this thing will end
And I can say to you, sweet darling
You can smile again
I will never walk away from you
And I would like to call you my girl
And treat you like you should be treated
But you know there’s only so much I can do
I will leave it up to you
And when you’ve got it figured out
You know I’d like it if you let me
Show you a little love that’s nice and sweet
I really wanna get to know you
See what your eyes can see
Yes I’m saying to you my dear
Won’t you spend a little time with me
I’ll show you love like none you’ve ever seen
Sweet Little Missy, with your eyes so baby blue
How could someone make you feel so bad?
Let me tell you, I wouldn’t stop ‘til I could do for you
All the good things you know you deserve to have
I will shower you with gold, sweet darling
Tickle on your feet, tuck you in when it is time for bed
And then I’d like to wake you up with lovin’ oh so sweet
And cover you with roses white and red
My little sleepy head
These are things that I would do
Come on darling won’t you let me show you…

Rain Go Away

Written By: Tim Hirons

Rain go away, don’t take these blue skies from me. Rain won’t you go away?
This water in my eyes makes you so hard to see. Rain go away from me.
And all I wanted was a little light to lift me when I’m down.
Let me look upon your face, it always clears away this frown. Yes it does,
Oh yeah
Rain go away, don’t take these blue skies from me. Rain won’t you go away?
This water in my eyes makes you so hard to see. Rain go away from me.
And all I wanted was a little light to shine and pick me up.
Now I’m running from the sky to keep this water from my cup.
And if it gets into my ears you know I think I’ll go insane.
The way it travels to my head and up around into my brain. Yes it does,
Oh yeah
And the water is gonna make me slide. And the puddles leave nowhere to hide.
Have a wreck, slippin’ on your back. If you hurry, there ain’t no coming back.
