Circle Games

Written By: Tom Stuart

Riding out to the west coast in a beat up Chevrolet
Crossing the desert through Pojoaque just north of Santa Fe
Feeling heat from the summer sun doesn’t make him feel at ease
Moving south on abandon roads in search of what he needs

He says from Dust we go and from dust we surely came
And the blood on this land and my blood are all the same

Searching for the Messiah, which he’s sure some day will come
Being aware of the temperature rise and the heat from kingdom come
Breaking down in the salt flats, so he walks to the nearest town
Always thrown by those unaware of the shit that’s coming down

From dust we go and from dust we surely came
And he’ll not be part of these vicious circle games
BRIDGE/ SOLO
Paintings all of the steamboats on the Colorado shore
Dried up streets in the city of Yuma says they ain’t be coming back no more
Crossing over going into Sonora hoping for some peace of mind
But the best is gone and the worst of times is all he’s sure he’s going to find
He says from dust we go and from dust we surely came
And the blood on this land and my blood are all the same
From dust we go and from dust we surely came
And he’ll not be part of these vicious circle games

Feeling Any Stronger

Written By: Tom Stuart

She asks me if I’m feeling any stronger
(I say that) some things are different and some things stay the same
She thinks the universe is getting ever longer
(I say that) some things are different, but some things never change

I close my eyes and in my mind a thousand things I hope to find
It does not appear anywhere
I cannot find it yet I know it’s there.

I think every day I’m getting ever stronger
Some things stay the same and some things always change
The universe, it either is or isn’t longer
It doesn’t matter, some things never stay the same
SOLO
They say the universe is getting ever longer
Just in time as they increase subway fares
I get weak, the politicians, he gets stronger
And for a quarter you can call someone call who cares

I close my eyes and in my mind a zillion things are what I find
I cannot make sense anywhere
I can’t feel, can’t see, can’t breathe, I don’t care

At long last I can see we’re getting no where
Some things are different and some things stay the same
They can charge us whatever they think is fare
Some things stay the same and some need exact change.

Ghosts

Written By: Tom Stuart

Jack the Potters only son was shaken by the breeze
He liked the space to wander in the 20th century
So he holes up in bar somewhere not knowing what he needs
And thinking he can do without he runs on his beliefs
Only in the nighttime
And only in the fields
I swear I can see him wandering still

He says he can’t feel hunger and the cold is in your mind
What’s the use of working hard if your spirit falls behind?
There’s not must point in talking if you’ve nothing much to say
Not much point to socialize, so won’t you please just go away
Only in the nighttime
And only in the fields
I swear I can see him wandering still

And sitting in a field on night I see a frightened man
And as he’s running toward me, I think I understand
A focus on an energy that’s running through his veins
He’s a ghost in search of something; to return from where he came
My eyes were filled with wonder
My field of vision soared
The senses that were me were mine no more
And only in the nighttime
And only in the fields
I swear I can see him wandering still

Fine Most the Time

Written By: Tom Stuart

I’ve been things bout you every night
And I think that it’s time you know
I’m your woman, you and I both know that this is true
You see that I’m fine most the time, but what are you trying to do?

What I wouldn’t give to be your only one
To be in your heart and mind
But what do I gotta do? What do I gotta do to make you mine?
You see I’m fine most the time, ‘til I find you’ve been lying to me.
SOLO
You’ve been busy a lot again
And I think that you’ve been lying to me
What am I suppose to think? What am I suppose to think when you are gone from me?
You know that I’m fine most the time ‘til I find you’ve been lying to me.

You slumming around here baby
You’re making a fool of me.
You disappear for the weekend thinking I’m too blind to see
I’ve had it with your stories
And I’ve had it with your tune
Come on, come on baby, let’s just get this over soon
What do I gotta do? What do I gotta do to make you mine?
You see that I’m fine most the time ‘til I find you’ve been lying to me.
SOLO
What do I gotta do? What do I gotta do to make you mine?
You see that I’m fine most the time ‘til I find you’ve been lying to me.
I’m fine most the time ‘til I find you’ve been lying to me.
I’m fine most the time ‘til I find you’ve been lying to me.

In Between Man

Written By: Tom Stuart

I took your kiss with me to bed last night
Ate it up, loving every bite
I know, baby, that a kiss is just a kiss
Should I feel bad, or should I jump on this?

A still small voice, telling me no, no, no
But I don’t listen when my eyes are closed
Maybe someday, maybe this day, maybe no
I’ll be your once-in- a- while woman. You be my in-between man
Baby, I’ll take you in my arms, make you understand
The heart of a woman, baby, in the hands of a man
My still small voice, telling me no, but I don’t listen when my eyes are closed.

I’ll be your once-in- a- while woman. You be my in-between man
Baby, I’ll take you in my arms, make you understand
The heart of a woman, baby, in the hands of a man
My still small voice, telling me no, but I don’t listen when my eyes are closed.

I took your kiss with me to bed last night
Ate it up, loving every bite
I know, baby, I know, a kiss is just a kiss
But should I feel bad, or should I jump on this?

Turn Out the Lights

Written By: Tom Stuart

Turn out the lights now, baby
I can’t begin to understand what it is you are trying to say
I know it’s late and we are tired, let’s get some sleep
And let the morning turn the nighttime into day [And in the morning let the nighttime lead to day]

Baby, please don’t ask me why
There’s no excuse for what I’ve done
If I speak it would be a lie
I didn’t mean to cause such pain, let’s get some sleep
And in the morning, maybe things won’t be the same

In my mind there’s an open road that I use to call my own
It’s fading from my memories, like my younger days out on my own
So turn out these lights now baby. Let’s get some sleep
And let the morning start us on a brand new day.

In my mind there’s an open road that I use to call my own
It’s fading from my memories, like my younger days out on my own
So turn out these lights now baby. Let’s get some sleep
And let the morning start us on a brand new day.

Alternative chorus lyrics:
I know it’s been a long long time I’ve been around
All I ever wanted, was to be with you, by your side
Don’t leave me now, while it is late and we are tired
Don’t let the darkness take our many years away

I know it’s been a long long time I’ve been around
All I ever wanted was to be with you, by your side
Hold me close, don’t let me go, be with me now
And through the nighttime I can dream these cares away

Sun and Moon

Written By: Tom Stuart

I hear a quiet clicking
It’s a rumor of an old familiar sound
You tell me it’s nothing, never to worry, but I know that something’s wrong
And if I give you my heart, I was thinking it was such a pretty song
I wait patiently, love doesn’t hurry, but I’ve been waiting so long.

And every day the sun still comes up, and every night the moon goes round
And every heart that falls from heaven, breaks apart when it hits the ground, hits the ground
[And every time I fall from heaven, I fall apart when I hit the ground]

I remember a time
Pure and innocent so deep within my soul
I try not to love you, try not to hurt, but it’s something I can’t control
When I gave you my heart
I was thinking it would be forever more
All the promises broken, I can’t remember
How our life was before

Yet every day the sun still comes up, and every night the moon comes round
And every heart that falls from heaven, breaks apart when it hits the ground, hits the ground.
