For Will 01:21
In memory of Will Fridlin 1979-2015

There you go again Conjuring up old flames Old friends and old names Insects who got away The shoulda coulda world Gotta blow it up tonight You’re gonna meet someone Brand new to your life Endless hamster wheels Recycled past romance Rotating dead seeds in unusable ground They never stood a chance The view’s in front of you Keep your eyes pointing forward Forget about over your shoulder That scenery has gone by And exit the circle You will find a love like you never loved before Exit the circle Think of the pain – think of the pain no more Exit the circle Remember the past and know when to let it go Exit the circle He’s not coming home Throw those playing cards Don’t deal a new hand Play a whole different game Not meant to stay the same Breathing in fresh air Veins full of new blood You had to say “enough” No more round and round Don’t search anymore Don’t call anymore Don’t try to reach him anymore It’s not the chapter that’s over The whole book is over You cannot reach him anymore

Xmas Song 03:50
It’s Christmas again January sneaks in Days of my past I want to come back Wondered where they had been But just like a Christmas song You stay with me all year long You’re everywhere I go In everything I do I’m never without you Winter nights are so cold A warm hand to hold I now understand how my wonderland It never was gone Cause just like a Christmas song You stay with me all year long You’re everywhere I go In everything I do I will always love you And I love my Tampa And I love New York You are everywhere – you are everywhere And I love Chicago I love San Francisco We’re everywhere – we are everywhere And just like a Christmas song You stay with me all year long You’re everywhere I go In everything I do I’ll never forget you And I look up Now I know where to point it to And so much love Now I know where to point it to

Country road in a station wagon Her plaid dress and my favorite jeans Never thought about getting older Never thought about getting older Pretty people and their indiscretions Puzzle pieces that never fit Never thought about getting older Never thought about getting older Stop that clock I don’t think I wanna go Time keeps moving and it’s never slow When I was 19 When I was 19 Still in love with the world So in love with the world In exile from the cold Peter and I were inseparable What I’d do for another chance For a drink and a dance New York boys with Florida dreams This town it’s been damn good to me You know that a friend is good Don’t care if you’re in a bad mood Thinking about Little Will speeding down I-20 towards downtown Oh the months and years They won’t slow down When I was 19 When I was 19 Still in love with the world So in love with the world Station wagon’s gone Anne’s dress in rags now And Troy hates his job Like Rose hates her kids And me I’m too calm I’m way too comfortable I wanna feel alive again And I wanna fly again Like when I was 19…

You made it through day one You made it through day one You made it through day one You made it through day two You made it through day two Hell yeah good for you You made it through a week You made it through a week Or two as we speak A center has been found So has solid ground But your compulsions ate you nice and slow They gotta go gotta go And your compulsions ate you nice and slow They gotta go gotta go gotta Pushed and shoved and then you had enough Oversexed and underloved Bought and sold such a heavy load Did those bastards leave you cold? Walk in sunlight see the starlight Feel your golden shine There’s no way you’re getting old You’re getting finer jet airliner! Repeat Chorus If you take it take it take it nice and slow No undertow undertow If you take it take it take it you gotta know Your compulsions will go RAP When Jane couldn’t marry Jane But they could both buy guns Let that damage come undone

You know you want me And you know you’ve got it going on Wanna love you and I think that I could Not gonna fake it like all the other times before Gonna do it like I think that I should You got it going on – got it going on You’ve got it going on Going on baby Not feeling any ordinary kinda love Nothing will stop me from spinning around The way you kiss me underneath the shining moonlight I think I’m in love And oh yea touch me baby Drive across the bridge I gotta get to you I just wanna touch you And do what lovers do Asleep on my shoulder Yellow lines speed by The clouds perform magic In the Florida sky I love trains they don’t got no town You’re a lot like them No one can hold you down I wanna get to you – wanna get to you I gotta get to you – get to you baby I need love… I’m ready to roll Speeding down the road I think I’m in love I can’t get enough

Forest Fires 03:40
Hope you’re out tonight Wanna take you home Get you all alone Build you a throne Relieve your Belgium stress Get undressed Relieve all your stress Such a pretty mess Like a forest fire You really heat me up Like a forest fire You really get me hot No one will ever know I’ll look if you show The one I love is gone Let’s get it on And my life’s a mess Get undressed You really turn me on Let’s get it on You get me so hot And I don’t wanna stop Keep my body going Til we’re on top

The scene was Brooklyn New York They look so young and so cool Emmy’s got her party dress on She’s got her Lena down good At a dinner party Vintage sweaters on They’re dressed to the tens Wish I was there with my friends They’re having fun I want it all The scene was in L.A. They’re VIP Alyx in two foot heels Cocaine deals A Z-list party No room for ideals They’re getting banged by the lens Wish I was there with my friends (Bend and snap you can take it all back Pose and post – see who likes you the most) In Portland Oregon At a fashion show Laurel’s got her bedazzle on With a bearded boy I know From every angle I see Bourgeois anarchy Alone in my bed Wish I was there with my friends They’re having fun in their Facebook pictures I want it all like in Facebook pictures (Having fun and I want it – I want it all…)

Flip Flops 03:20
This boat ain’t much – my tarp in tatters But cruising down coast towards the sunset is all that matters Don’t judge me darling – sit down on the sand There’s still adventure left in this gin and tonic land I’m not the one you’re looking for I’m the place where you belong I may not have the answers And I don’t mind being wrong Perfection’s for wastrels Planning is for fools The tide is always changing To hell with all the rules When I get angry I take it to the beach Mr Jack Daniels has got some things to teach I can’t promise riches I’m one hell of a time I may not do the right thing But my heart is always kind Walk a mile in my flip flops Bring me back a beer Walk a mile in my flip flops Bring me back a beer Baby come back here… Falling off my bar stool Again I’m at your feet I always take the long road But I know every street When storms start coming I hoist my beer up high To the tiki bar goddess In the tequila sky Could it be that I’m a fool? Might it be that I’m a clown? Should be’s are for gamblers Tonight we’ve got the crown Walk a mile in my flip flops Bring me back a beer Walk a mile in my flip flops Bring me back a beer Baby come back here

Trouble Toys 02:59
Toy Camaro by the side of the road Too drunk to park on his own Black paint shining in the sun Left when the game was done Toy camera with black and white film Best admired when silent and still Images burn out the sun Left when the game was done Trouble toys Achingly beautiful Trouble toys Splintered and beautiful Toy monster at a rock and roll show Smash buildings find no home Spotlight on a deadly face Leave without a trace Toy train didn’t have any room Too crowded and departed too soon Forgiveness will come one day When there’s no one left to play So fun to play with You can’t take ‘em home (Don’t go…)
11.
Down And Up 03:50
I am driving in my car My new car I am laying in my bed My new bed I am working at my job My new job Good friends with a lot of soul Let’s glow low I’ve been up I’ve been down I’ve never been the kind to hang around Back and forth Up and down I’ve always been the kind to hold my ground So I stood back up Grenades on my list I’ve been kissed and I’ve been dissed Discarded and betrayed I’ve been played and I’ve been laid The love of my dreams won’t call me back Tonight there’ll be no bomb attack Good friends and some soul Pizza beer and rock and roll I didn’t wanna live my life without you But I stood back up I didn’t want to play this show without you But I stood back up I didn’t wanna sleep one night without you But I stood back up The show goes on without you honey Yea I stood back up Down and up down and up Life keeps taking me down and up Down and up down and up And I’m not one to give up
12.
Still Golden 03:38
Worn down and eroded Full of rust and corroded How did you become A fraction of what was No matter how you fade You’re still golden No matter what they say You’re gold How about forgetting the times when you felt done wrong? How about forgiving the times when you were not strong? How about making each sunrise a brand new scene? How about loving your dirty so much you’re clean? No matter what cards you played You’re still golden No matter how they hate You’re gold No matter what happened I love you And you’re still golden When I look at the sky I see gold. (Hold on…)
13.
What if there’s no after life? No spirits or ghosts? The possibility You won’t rejoin me Destroys me the most The mysteries of God and death The way that I miss your breath I have to believe Your phantom’s with me Just to keep me warm I’m running infinitely I’m running infinitely When it’s time to go I really hope you show Up beside me What if we’re are all just Germs and bacteria Never gonna stay Dwelling for another day in hysteria Part of me doesn’t sleep at night The way your shadow holds me tight I had to believe That someday it’ll be alright I’m running infinitely I’m running infinitely When my time is done I hope that you’re the one Beside me I get the feeling you’re next to me I get the feeling you’re inside of me Our time comes and goes so fast And then I go crazy
14.
Technicolor 02:33
All the sleepless nights Dark ages and meteorites The value of mistakes Rebuilding from earthquakes No more black and white No more black and white I’m in color Technicolor Memories of rages Blank pages empty stages The importance of a fail And those who survived to tell the tale No more black and white No more black and white I’m in color Technicolor No more black and white No more black and white I’m in color Technicolor Blue skies And technicolor
15.
God I’m lucky I met you I wish I felt more stable than I do I often feel I’m in outer space But when you sing in your car I felt I found my place I love trains and the speed they go A backpack and a jump we’re in Mexico I wanna rest my mouth on top of your head But I think you’re happy on your side of the bed Don’t let these moments die There’s never too much love Asleep on my shoulder yellow lines speed by And the clouds perform magic in the Florida sky The best feeling I’ve ever had I cry a lot lately and it’s not because I’m sad I love trains they ain’t got no town You’re a lot like them no one can hold you down I really like it when you sleep here But the cold night after is what I fear Don’t let these moments die There’s never too much love And I can’t wait til I can give it to you It’s all good…that’s what you’d say right now It’s all good…I know that’s what you’d say right now
16.
You claim that you can’t love me Claim you can’t love anyone Repeat that we’re only friends And that you hug everyone It’s a wavy world out there Turbulence and despair Love playing with your hair Felt shipwrecked without a home And then I was less alone Crystals and refracting fears Sometimes you disappear The way I feel when I’m with you A calmer shade of blue Driving all night to find you And if you won’t promise me forever If you won’t promise me next week Can I have now? Can I have right now? In still water for a time No undercurrents to undermine The full moon or soft skin Sometimes you let me in If your clouds go in remission Could you give yourself permission To admit that I am warm? Sometimes you shine like selenite And we stay up all night Sometimes you really suck It seems you don’t give a fuck Sometimes you drive me crazy Sometimes you amaze me At the end of the day You pull me in Or push me away I wish you’d stay
