Songs like “Lighthouse,” about a special person leaving before you get the chance to tell them how you feel, and “The Raincheck Man,” about an over-qualified guy who is constantly blown off, evoke those emotions that can only come from riding the roller coaster of life and love.

The Song "The Story of My Life" from Wolf’s demo LP can now be found on Awarestore.com’s most recent compilation called Ear Snacks Volume 6 along with other great artists, such as: Tim Blane, Jon Mclaughlin, Justin Kyle Hasty, Mighty Purple and many more.

Lyrics

Lighthouse

Written By: Jim Wolf

Walked in my life, a minute too soon.
Grateful that wave, had brought you in.
Deer in headlights, I could not move.
Dumb founded silence grew.

I hold my breath
will you come back.

I went to look for you,
out on the sand.
But until you arrive,
I’ll be back in the lighthouse
with it on.

In the world we live, you get to choose.
Waited too long, to meet my muse.
As fortune’s told, the question remains,
will I get you back the same way you came.

I hold my breath
will you come back.

I went to look for you,
out on the sand.
But until you arrive,
I’ll be back in the lighthouse
with it on.

You really don’t know how much I mean,
fear I’ll never have the chance again.
Whole ‘nother world I can’t imagine, maybe someday you’ll come invite me in.

Forever’s a long time,
wondering if a goodbye is real.
Our moment will come, the stars never lie.
Everything, has a meaning in this life
will you come back.

I went to look for you,
out on the sand.
But until you arrive,
I’ll be back in the lighthouse
with it on.

You didn’t have to go.

On The Radio

Written By: Jim Wolf

Everybody turn the knob and change the station as our ears aimlessly hear and never listen to the message of what is really being said.

Frequencies are enough information to change what people think. Would you know what I mean when you’re in your car, your office or your limousine?

(Chorus)
Is it just me or have you heard this song before on the radio. I hope you don’t mind as I point out the music world familiarity. If you are what you eat then you probably are what you listen too. And I don’t mean to generalize,
but it’s all the same, it’s all the same.

Deejay’s spin all the songs. All the songs have been promoted and produced by the industry. A formulaic math equation brought to life by a mad scientist.

(Chorus)
Is it just me or have you heard this song before on the radio. I hope you don’t mind as I point out the music world familiarity. If you are what you eat then you probably are what you listen too. And I don’t mean to generalize, but it’s all the same, it’s all the same.

‘Cause what’s the obsession with this here chord progression? And when they know what I mean it will be the last you hear from me.

(Chorus)
Is it just me or have you heard this song before on the radio. I hope you don’t mind as I point out the music world familiarity. If you are what you eat then you probably are what you listen too. And I don’t mean to generalize, but it’s all the same, it’s all the same to me… it’s all the same. If you add me to your list and remember what I did, I’m telling you it’s all the same.

Everybody turn the knob and change the station as our ears aimlessly hear and never listen to the message.

Her Cartoon

Written By: Jim Wolf

Drive on out, for air to breathe,
but never run away from your own thoughts.
One good burn, can steal your heart.
Behind the wheel, you turn the key and fall apart.

Some wait their whole lives, never try when it counts.
Even the greatest alive have their doubts.
Now…

Picture this temptress, walking away from her soul mate.
Charcoal pencils will make his shape.
He became a cartoon another page.

Some wait their whole lives, never try when it counts.
Even the greatest alive have their doubts.

She’s making her cartoons.
It’s how she stays alive,
to cover up the guilt, with the colors in her mind.
We’re growing up so fast, she doesn’t have the time at twenty five.

(break)

High as hell and reckless, trade in your dreams for little white lines.
In her compact, she blew a kiss.
Knowing one day, she’d lie in chalk, an outline.

Some wait their whole lives, never try when it counts.
Even the greatest alive have their doubts.

She’s making her cartoons.
It’s how she stays alive, to cover up the guilt, with the colors in her mind.

We’re growing up so fast, she doesn’t have the time at twenty five.

(repeat)

She’s making her cartoons.
It’s how she stays alive, to cover up the guilt, with the colors in her mind.

We’re growing up so fast, she doesn’t have the time, to make it up to you, at twenty five.
