Sweet Sweet Swallow

Sweet sweet swallow
Fly back home
We built this nest together
But I can make it alone.

Sweet sweet swallow
I’ll never say goodbye,
I’ll be with you forever
So spread your wings and fly

And I’ll fly with you wherever you are
And you’ll be with me in my heart

Sweet sweet swallow
You’ll never fly away.
I’ll be flying right by your side
The whole way

Sweet sweet swallow
Don’t be scared
Reach your wing out and touch my hand
It will always be there.

And I’ll fly with you wherever you are
And you’ll be with me in my heart

Sweet sweet swallow
Fly away
Sweet sweet swallow
It’s ok… It’s ok…It’s ok

The River

I

 

I know a girl

She liked to get kinky

She liked to get sweaty

And she liked to get stinky

She liked to make love

In public places

She’d wear loose clothes

And make funny faces

She liked to go down

on judges and cops

But then she got busted

And she had to stop

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

 

I used to run

With a dangerous crowd

We liked to get drunk

And we liked to get loud

Then one day

We got out the forty=five

Man I was lucky to get out alive

I hear Tommy’s

Still on the run

It’s a big price to pay

For a little bit of fun

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

 

Well Billy Bob

Didn’t think twice

’bout laying down

With his neighbor’s wife

Neighbor came home

Caught him in his bead

put two bullets

In Billy Bob’s head

Now poor Billy is

Dead and gone

Never got a chance

To hear my song

Take me down to the river….  And wash my sins away.

The Light in your Eyes

 

I see the light in your eyes

It brightens up my darkened skies

You’re like a nude sunrise

I love the light in your eyes

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love the light in your eyes

It shines right through my dark disguise

And it makes me realize

That there’s a truth behind my lies

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love the light in your eyes………..

 

{Spanish}

{Featuring Erin Accomando on vocals}

I see the light in your eyes

It shines so bright I’m hypnotized

And it helps me realize

That there’s no reason not to try

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

I love that light in your eyes

It shines so bright, so strong and wise

It makes me realize

That there’s no need for my disguise

 

I can’t wait, can’t hesitate

I might be late for something great

 

Spanish Translation:  

It was a day like any other day.  I was doing my chores.  Not really thinking about anything.  I had to do this and that and the other thing.  There is always so much to do and so little time to do it.  So I packed up my clothes and headed to the Laundry mat.

I went in the laundry mat, and as I opened the door I saw a light.  There in the corner was a woman so beautiful that she almost blinded me.  When my bright blue eyes met her beautiful ebony eyes… sparks flew.  And my world never was the same.

THE DOG SONG

pvigugggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

I know a dog that lived on a hill

He killed his master and got the will.

He was a bad dog.

 

I know a dog that stuck by the side

of a mean old man that tanned his hide

He was a good dog.

002

 

 

I know a dog that lived in the street

Never really had enough to eat/

He was a hungry dog.

 

Every dog has his day.

 

Kitty cat knows where it’s at

Just lays around growing fat

She don’t need to chase no rat

She’s gat a dog to take care of that.

 

But the dog’s got to go to work all day.

Someone’s got to get out and earn that pay

Working like a dog in the cold hard city

Just to spend all his money on a pretty little Kitty.

 

Every dog has his day.

 

Where’s my dog?

I need you now

Calling all my dogs

Calling all my dogs

Here dog… here dog.

 

Every dog has his day.

No Es Mi Cisne

No es mi cisne

Muerta  en la calle.

Pisada por el trafico.

No es mía, es otra.

Mi musa aun vive.

Esas manchas de sangre,

Ya negras de tanto humo de carro,

Esa disorden de flechas que

Ni reflejan la belleza que fue

No son de ella.

 

La paso diario en mis labores

Y cada día hay menos de ella.

Hasta rostros no van a estar

Ni prueba que existió.

Pero no es mia

Yo se

Por que anoche

Me visitó

CALLING UP TO HEAVEN

Hello… hello hello.

I’m calling up to heaven

Just to say hello

 

Hello…hello hello.

I miss you

Like you’ll never know.

 

I’ve got a new phone and it has a special ap.

They say I can call you anywhere you’re at

So I’m calling up to heaven just to talk to you

One more time.

 

I found your number with your old things

So I’m giving it a call just to see if it rings

And maybe you’ll answer and tell me that

You’re doing fine

 

Hello… hello hello.

I’m calling up to heaven

Just to say hello

 

Hello…hello hello.

I miss you

Like you’ll never know.

YOU

 

The sun rises in the morning

And it rises for you.

A flower blooms in a field

And it blooms for you.

Mountains tremble and shake,

Deserts turn into lakes,

Seas become rough and violent,

And thunder is suddenly silent.

And it’s all for you…

Its all for you…

Because you are everything that there is to me.

You are everything that there is to me.

 

If a heart that once was cold

Burried in a body  that’s growing old

Forgets about its pain and sin,

To warm and love again

It’s because of you.

If the touch of your skin makes a fire ignite

And in my darkness your eyes shine light

Giving color to everything that’s blue

This is all my love and it’s all for you

Yes it’s all for you

Yes it’s all for you.

Because you are everything that there is to me

You are everything that there is to me

 

NO ONE KNOWS

No one knows what they’ve got until it’s gone

No one knows what’s right until they’ve done wrong

No one knows what’s true, until they’ve lied

No one knows how  to live, until they’ve died

 

But girl I know this is true…..

Baby I need you  (repeat)

 

No one’s happy until they’ve been sad

No one’s sane until they’ve gone mad

No one knows if they’re smart until they’ve said something dumb

No one knows how to feel until they’ve felt numb

 

But girl I know this is true….

Baby I need  you (repeat)

 

No one’s got what they want

No one wants what they need

Everyone wants to be loved

And everyone wants to be free

 

But girl I know this is true….

Baby I need  you (repeat)

 

I need you baby…

It’s not a question of desire

It’s a matter of necessity.

 

I need you…

 

Like a man needs to eat

Like a man needs to sleep.

Like a man needs to…  Breath.

 

I need you…

 

Like the sun needs to shine

Like a dog needs its master

Like a bee needs honey

 

I need you…

 

Like a bolt needs a nut

Like a screw needs a driver

Down By the River (Missed the Crossroads)   

 

 

Down by the river

I met an angel so fine

I played her my songs

And dreamed that  she was mine

 

Down by the river

Where I played long before

That Angel smiled

And my faith was restored.

 

I played her some songs and she asked for more

 

Down by the river

On a hot august day

I liked the way she looked

and she liked the way I played

 

I sang songs about her beauty

And the color of her clothes

About long flowing hair

and cute little toes

 

Now I could live, I’d been dead for so long.

So many years, not one little song..
