Lyrics

AS ONE

AS ONE

 

Can you imagine a time,
where two souls entwined,
like the waves that wash in from the bay.
Can you imagine two hearts, from so far apart,
crossed light in a magical way.
So I won’t be looking.
There’s no need I found you.
AS ONE, together.
Now our lives have rearranged,
with the highest exchange,
joined together forever right now.
So I won’t be looking.
There’s no need I found you.
As One, together.
And it’s all about love,
and all you’re thinking of,
with the tears of laughter filling needs from above.
With the dreams and hopes, of our children’s girls and boys,
while we ride the river of life turning sorrows into joys.
It was meant to be, fulfilling every need,
we’re two souls crossing in time. AS ONE forever.

BREAK THE GATE


When the time comes the gates will fall
Will we just waste it or heed the call
The skies darken, thunder roars through the clouds
Now the earth shakes and shows her power
The wind is screaming it’s the final hour
This is the time to open your eyes
See the visions revealed in the skies
Oh what a lucky sign to be alive
Be part of this changing age and times
In darkness and fire blood will flow
Vengeance lives, from hell below,
Hear angels voices calling the world
Feel their fears as mortal mans systems fail
It’s all part of the plan
To save ourselves from self destruction
We must learn to follow instructions
Oh what a lucky sign to be alive
Be part of this changing age and times

As it was in the beginning
And because all time is now
The past is now future, showing us how
To move forward with grace, and to lay down our arms
While remembering those that died for the cause
AAhhh
When the time comes the gates will fall
Will you be tested and heed the call
The gates will fall the lightning soars
When the time comes lightning soars
Break the gate break down the gate

JACK THE RIFFER

 

It started when I was eight years old
I wanted to be a drummer
I had natural rhythm, so I was told
But we lived upstairs in a quiet flat
My mother said no drums and that was that
So I grabbed a guitar and I started riffing
My first guitar was a cherry red Hagstrom Swede
I played with her so much it made my fingers bleed
But now I have a couple of Ibanez a Gibson
And a Strat for those nasty bends
So that’s why they named me Jack the riffer

I’m Jack the riffer and I’m here to play for you
Try to keep up cause a little boogie woogie is due

So if by chance you need to dance to a regular kind of style
You know that you can track me down
And if you are passing along the way

Please stop by and hear me play
The notes I’m playin are comin your way
I want to riff for you all night
Cause riffing is the medicine that makes it right
I want to riff for you all night
Cause riffing is the medicine that makes it right
Riffin riff me out riffin
Riff me out
Now I’ve done so many things and traveled near and far
I’d get into my old blue van or drive there in my car
But one thing remained consistent
After all that’s said and done
It’s my family of six string friends that’s the true source of
My fun
Cause I’m Jack the riffer and I’m here to riff for you
So try to keep up, cause a little boogie woogie is due
So try to keep up, cause a little boogie woogie is due
I want to I need to hear those riffs all night long

WASTING TIME

 

You used to hold me tight every time I came to see you
You used to say those things that would make me go crazy
But now you’ve changed your tune and I don’t feel it
anymore
So now I’m leaving you I’m leaving right out your door
Wasting time.
We used to make hot love then we’d lie together
The time would go on by we wished it would never end
But now you’ve lost yourself and you look at other guys
I’ll call you on the phone and then I listen to your lies
Over and over and over again
I spent my time lonely till I found you
I gave you all of my heart
But now you’ve taken what we had and broke it
It’s time to throttle up and that’s a start
Hey baby you’re just here at the right time
You are what I need Just get on
Move up close behind

Let’s ride here we go
Mmm feeling kinda better now
I am feel this
Wasting time wasting time
I call you on the phone
Then I listen to your lies Yeah
No more wasting wasting time
No no no
I’ve had it

YOU

Sitting here in silence letting thoughts go by From deep within my heart where the truth resides And those thoughts are many with many open doors But the ones I hold the closest forever they are yours There were choices that I made and some were wrong There were faces that were there but now they’re gone And now there’s you As beautiful as a sun baked sky Like a cloudburst and it’s really no wonder why that when I met you There was no hesitation and that’s no lie Lying here together beneath a shady tree Loving you and you are here for me for me and all to see These moments are so precious they build eternal bonds That last our lifetime holding us closely on and on. There were places that I stayed perhaps too long It gave me the will and strength to carry on And now here is you As beautiful as a sun baked sky Like a cloud bursting And it’s really no wonder why that when I met you There was no hesitation and that’s no lie You as beautiful as a sun baked sky Like a cloudburst And it’s really no wonder why that when I met you There was no hesitation and that’s no lie You as beautiful as a sun baked sky Like a cloud bursting And it’s really no wonder why that when I met you There was no hesitation and that’s no lie. No that’s no lie oooh baby oh I’ll cross my heart I’ll cross my heart for you baby I crossed my heart

COMING HOME TO YOU

Where to start when the night is so full of light  Blinding enticing flashes of city sights  Endless ways counted in as many days  I’ll meet up with the one I know that will be right    When it gets a little crazy  You’ll find me on the elevator  Up and out of these mazes  It comes down again a little later   I’m on the 7th floor knocking at your front door  I’m coming home to you  Can’t even think anymore  Been invited to explore to see what we can do    Falling out of time from a black and white movie scene  No one is waiting for the sleeper’s dream  Swept in a moment of living so hard  Pull out and play your next wild card    When it gets a little crazy  You’ll find me on the elevator  Up and out of these mazes  It comes down again a little later    I’m on the 7th floor knocking at your front door  I’m coming home to you  Can’t even think anymore  Been invited to explore to see what we can do    And every time we get together get together It gets better it gets better than before  And every tear you shed for me It’s just not how it is meant to be  I’m on the 7th floor knocking at your front door  I’m coming home to you  Can’t even think anymore  Been invited to explore to see what we can do

BEST SHOT

 

Ahhh
Give me some space, I need a place to chill,
closing up my place believe me it’s no thrill.
Leave me alone I got to figure things out,
seems I always whisper but I know I’ve got to shout.
You know it.
And if I mess things up,
I know I gave it my Best Shot.
Give me some answers so I can get it straight,
the last thing I need is for you to procrastinate.
I need someone to trust and understand,
I’m so disappointed with my faith in fellow man.
mmmm… mmmmmm…
And if I messed it up,
I know I gave it my Best Shot.
And if I make the grade,
my future plans are laid.
You know I have always been a dreamer.
I took my chances walking the thin line sometimes.

I found it all works out one way or another.
It just depends on where the boundaries lie.
So don’t take what you have for granted,
remember what you take, is not what you are.
Except for the fact that I was blinded,
there was no excuse, there was no excuse, there was no excuse,
for what was feared.
Leave me alone to figure things out,
I only want to whisper but I know I’ve got to shout.
Hey, Hey.
Don’t get in my way, I have to do it on my own,
I don’t want your help just leave me alone.
And if I fuck it up,
you know I gave it my best shot.
And if I make the grade,
it all would rearrange and help me find my peace of mind and end my quest for what is really real.

BIG SKY

 

As the sun sinks down the mountain side
I see a cloud top on its head
I hear the distant rolling of thunder
Breaking with the big sky
Gliding along this empty road
I see the stars turn on like lights
The wind hits my face and the rain comes at night
It was destiny that things that were thoughts to me
Have now become reality now I understand
To feel the energy and use it for recovery
When I knew it was meant to be
Because I left it in your hands
I left that pop stand far behind
And head out on a western run
With my saddle bags and two wheeled ride
I’m alive again
I arrive at the setting sun to a place where mountains shine
And the water below cascades under the big sky

It’s not a mystery that the time has come to me
At this place of tranquility
I reach out to feel your heart
To grasp the energy use it for recovery
But I knew it was meant to be
I knew it from the start
Big Sky Riding with Big Sky I’m under the Big Sky
Big Sky Riding with Big Sky I’m under the Big Sky
Big Sky Riding with Big Sky I’m under the Big Sky
Big Sky Riding with Big Sky I’m under the Big Sky

THE STREET

 

The Street
A crowded busy city street
The place where everyone meets
A subtle gesture returns a glance
An inside tip gains a smile
The rain has stopped I’ll be back in a while
Another sign of twisted circumstance
As I exit the doorway, I look to the right
An image hangs under the streetlight invoking a spirit
Silent but deadly
Got to keep going got a lot to do
Got to spend my time in search for you
Got to take you down and if you won’t
I’m going to shoot
This dark and eerie trail of sin
I can’t believe this space you’re in
The search for unknown truth is all so close
Looking back to see how it occurred
I keep on looking but it’s still obscured

Somehow the facts will come to pass
As I exit the doorway, I look to the right
An image hangs under the streetlight, invoking a spirit
Silent but deadly
I’ve seen this before and it’s true
Based on my gut I know it’s you
For reasons that shatter the mask that you live through
You can’t change your past and walk away
It really wouldn’t matter anyways
Your fate was predestined, accept it, or fall
Shoot shoot shoot shoot
Got to keep going got a lot to do
Got to spend my time in search for you
Got to take you down and if you won’t
I’m going to shoot
Got to keep going got a lot to do
Got to spend my time in search for you
Got to take you down and if you won’t
I’m going to shoot

As I exit the doorway, I look to the right
An image hangs under the streetlight invoking a spirit
Silent but deadly
A crowded city street where darkness meets
He puts his gun to his head
And pulls the trigger
And it’s over
Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot

GET IT ON

I’ve been gone, gone away too long now And I didn’t think you’d wait you couldn’t wait No recollection of my direction Stepping stones that blindly followed fate Thought I had good footing Instead I found my soul burning This great divide brought me to the edge Made the journey but my life was pretty dead Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on You’ve been a good, good lover I’ve woken up to rediscover Our connection exploded in the moonlight Reacquainted everything is right Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on I wandered so far you heard my spirit cry Life was so bizarre I tried to tell you just wait a while But you pulled me right back into you Didn’t know you were waiting there for me  And there was nothing, nothing you could do Until I came back around the bend To say I’m ready yeah, I’m ready for you Your spirit brought me to my knees Like a soldier coming home from overseas I’ll look behind me say I overcame Despite all my troubles couldn’t give it a name I’ll pick up the pieces, give in to releases Cause now I can see that there’s so much more i know for me to do Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on Wake up, I’m gonna wake up You know I really need you Wake up, I’m gonna wake up I can’t believe I didn’t have you in my life Wake up, I’m gonna wake up My world is gonna be new  Wake up, I’m gonna wake up Oooooohhh Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on Ooooh gotta get up, get down, and get it on

INTUITION

New reason brought by the shock Of your logic and form What is is not as is Hello  hello get out
Who listens Kissed on the lips By the words of a storm Damp souls seek out sunlight
I’m in such a fine position Blind sin gotta follow my intution I’m in run when it tells me to run
Cool stillness thoughts that are lost No connection to muse Blind men lead a shallow fight
I’m in     such a fine position Blind sin    gotta follow my intution I’m in    run when it tells me to run
I’m in     such a fine position Blind sin    gotta follow my intution I’m in    run when it tells me to run
Take a look around Wait a minute Thought is critical Every word and action
That’s it honey now you’re starting to piece it together Insert the missing piece completing the puzzle puts your mind at ease
If it doesn’t feel right Then it isn’t Incongruent Wait a minute Rabble rouser
That’s it honey, now you’ve painted his picture Once done changes last for evermore no enchore And it’s not worth 50 words No no not worth 50 words
Got to get movin I can’t stay in this crazy mess Will ya come with me or not

KICK

 

Moving through YYZ I’ve gotta lot of places I want to be
And I’m going to get there with speed
My bloods quick with the speed of this kick
Buckle up this is a fast lane gig
Get ready for a ride

Ohh Give it a Kick

Hitching up to the notes in my mind
Don’t stop until I cross the finish line
Cruising to the edge
Burn up the path don’t stop for gas
If you’re not first then you are last
Whoa oh Give it a Kick
Whoa give it a Kick

Sirens flashing, knocking on my rear view
No throwin down those coo coo in my attitude
Sirens flashing red and the blue
Flash roads coming, coming to find you

Who ya the lines are falling
Do you, hear my dreams a calling
And I’m going all in
Changing this gear into overdrive
What a time to be alive
I’m traveling at the speed of sound
