Seasons Lyrics

 

Seasons



I remember when I couldnít wait
To drive a car and stay out late, uh huh
I watched my body stretch and groan
And wonder why it took so long, uh huh
I wished that I could grab the hands of time
And turn into a man and leave that little boy behind
By the time that Iíd turned twenty
I longed for that simple state of mind


The teachers turned to bosses
And the money barely paid the rent, uh huh
The only ones that had it made
Were the older dudes that paid their way, uh huh
I wished that I could grab the hands of time
And turn a ten year plan into an overnight success
By the time that Iíd turned thirty
I realized how little time was left


The seasons of your life
Donít let them pass you by
For as the years unwind
You only get one at a time
Seasons ever changing ever fleeting
Itís a rhythm with a reason
The seasons of your life


We're always wanting something else
Each day I have to tell myself, uh uh, uh uh
I ainít gonna bait that trap
Iíve wasted too much time on that, uh huh, uh huh
Iím satisfied to watch the hands
Turn slowly as they can
Live my life day by day
And if I reach a hundred
Iíll make up for the time I threw away

 

 

What Are You Doing In My Dream



Thereís a thunder crash when the trouble starts
And my plane begins to fall
And I hit the ground
But the crazy part is it doesnít hurt at all
And I can hear a horn
Up comes an automobile
When I open the door
Girl itís you at the wheel


What are you doing in my dream
I thought I gave you up a long time ago
Didnít you say you were leaving
For a dream of your own
What are you doing on my mind
Youíve got me dreaming us back together
Just when I thought I could make it dreaming alone


Thereís a big hotel by the waterís edge
Where they gamble all night long
On a table top got my money spread
Canít believe the run Iím on
And Iím reaching for a card
Itís the same every time
I draw the queen of hearts
She has tears in her eyes


I tried to shake you
I do the best that I can
Just when I think Iíve got a handle
For all of my plans
Here you come again

 

 

Bedtime



When she walks in the room
Without saying a word and turns the TV off
And then turns out the light this early at night
I know what's goin' on
Baby,


It's bedtime, bedtime
The way she's looking at me itís easy to see what's on her mind
Good night it's gonna be good night
Love's running deep it's no time to sleep, it's bedtime


She can say she's in love but it's something to see
When all of that love comes alive
Filling me with desire she can sure start a fire
With only the light in her eyes
She tells me it's

 

 

Hidin' Place



We all need a little comfort
To get us through the night
And we all need somebody
To tell us itís all right
Sometimes in the hustle
You get to feeling alone
Oh itís nice to know that
You can go back home


Everybody needs a hidiní place
To get away from the old rat race
Everybody needs a hidiní place
To unwind and be free
Everybody needs a hidiní place
A little hole card just in case
And Iím into my, hidiní place
When my babyís with me
When my babyís with me
When my babyís with me


It donít have to be on a map
Just a state of mind
So donít fall into that same old trap
Just look around and find
That love is everywhere
And itís looking for you
And itís the very best thing
That you could ever do

 

 

Don't Break The Code



The valley was green and the sun was bright
He asked if sheíd like to go for a ride
They drove up to the river in the cool Oak trees
She reached out and gave his hand a squeeze
Suddenly they were in each others arms
The passion they felt was a four alarm
He loved her once, he loved her twice
But he should have listened to a friendís advice


Donít mess around with another manís wife
Step out of line you could lose your life
Stay on the straight and narrow road
Donít break the code


They drove back home when the sun went down
All the workers were headed out of town
Rushing to suppers and family nests
Relief from the fever time to rest
The loverís were slowly reluctant to part
Through the afternoon theyíd given their hearts
She twisted her golden wedding ring
As they listened to the crickets sing


The gun was sprayed with a diamond bright shine
He polished it when he came home from the mine
He said I can protect and keep whatís mine
A believer in Jesus and the ties that bind
He found them in bed he went out of his mind
Shot them both though the heart three times
The jury found only insanity
So his head stayed in prison but his body went free

 

 

Juliet



Juliet, Juliet
Youíve got the smile that I canít forget
On the day we met I made a bet
Some day Iíll win the love of Juliet


Long as the sand, bright as the sun
Where have you been since my life begun
Girl youíre the one that I want to know
Juliet let me be your Romeo


Friendly smile a sexy walk
A charming little accent when you talk
Youíre an eleven on a scale of ten
Juliet I just wanna say it again


Just a little bit shy, just a little bit quiet
I donít mind, Iím in love and I canít deny it

 

 

You Made A Rock Of A Rolling Stone



Like a stone I was rolling
Oh the highway was the only way Iíd known
I could go where I wanted
But I always had to go it all alone
And having nothing was having a lot
Until your loving made me wanna stop


You made a rock of a rolling stone
You made me a man worth leaning on
You gave my heart a home
Before I was too far gone
You made a rock of a rolling stone


As I lay here beside you
I can finally lay my leaving ways to rest
At a pace left to turn to
Now that I have found the place I love the best
I wouldnít go back even if I could
Need you so bad Iíll be here for good


I had to go all those miles to see
What was right in front of me

 

 

Take A Step (Yesterday Waltz)



Way up in the mountain above the green hills
Lives a poor hermit with an old homemade fiddle
In the late afternoon when the days work is through
He cradles that fiddle like a girl he once knew


Take a step, take a step, take an old fashioned step
Heís beginning to remember the tune
Another step, another step, another old fashioned step
Itís almost like sheís in the room
Heís playing the yesterday waltz


One day late last winter before the big snow
He packed up his fiddle and all of his clothes
His pony, old donkey, some corn from his field
And he walked all the way down into those green hills


Take a step, take a step, take an old fashioned step
Heís beginning to remember the tune
Another step, another step, another old fashioned step
And soon heíll be there in her room
Playing the yesterday waltz


Way down in the meadow, the valley so low
There lives a poor spinster with an old gramophone
One night before bedtime along with the rain
She heard someone playing a familiar refrain


Take a step, take a step, take an old fashioned step
And now she remembers the tune
Another step, another step, another old fashioned step
And yesterday fills up the room
Theyíre dancing the yesterday waltz


Take a step, take a step, take an old fashioned step
And now they remember the tune
Another step, another step, another old fashioned step
And yesterday fills up the room
Theyíre dancing the yesterday waltz
Take a step, take a step, take an old fashioned step
Theyíre dancing the yesterday waltz

 

 

What You Do To Me



Baby maybe I look just like a fool
Standing here before you trying to figure out
What you do to me
Just to see you, just to hear you speak my name
Makes me feel so weak that I can hardly stand
What you do to me


What you do to me, is like poetry
If I only knew, what you do to me
What you do to me is so heavenly
Wish I could do to you what you do to me


Baby Iím used to being in command
Knowing where I stand
But that was long before
You got through to me
Now Iím begging, begging
Donít let me go down in flames
Donít be playing games like they heard about
What you do to me


Oh keep on holding me (keep on holding me)
Keep on kissing me (keep on kissing me)
keep on driving me wild
Oh keep on touching me (keep on touching)
and my mercury (and my mercury)
Keeps on climbing up to the sky

 
Here we go
Baby what you do to me
Baby what you do to me
Baby what you do to me
Baby what you do
If I could only do what you do to me
Well

 

 

Everybody Wins



Bombs fly, angels cry
Tears that fall from the childrenís eyes
Rain that waters the bitter weed of hate
Choking out the tender heart
The strong survive but they bear the scars
Another generation where the smoke never clears away


Why canít we all get along with each other
Be a brother be a friend
If we loved each other more
Thereíd be nothing left to fight for
No contender no surrender
Everybody wins


Donít say you canít change
Human nature itís a greedy thing
Well Iím a believer
Where thereís a will thereís a way
And I believe in standin' up
You and yours but where thereís love
We stand beside each other and weíre not too proud to say
