Someone Said… Sweet Dreams

cd_sweet

SHE IS EVERYTHING
Happiness is heaven sent
Wise celebrate, while fools lament
Happiness is heaven sent
A twist of fate, an accident called love

Called love…yeah

She is everything you’ve wanted
But you’re nothing she’s dreamed of
So you’re always bound to lose her
Even if you win her love

Love’s fickle hand determines fate
Allow me to demonstrate
You lose your touch, your saving grace
You fall from grace, no way to save your face

You’re disgraced…yeah

She is everything you’ve wanted
But you’re nothing she’s dreamed of
So you’re always bound to lose her
Even if you win her love

WAKE UP
What’s that got you shakin’
And your belly achin’
Seems you’re on the verge
Of mentally breakin’

If you think about
And wanna talk about it
I’m right next to you
Don’t scream and shout it

Awake from your slumber
Wake up!

Start from the beginning
Before losing and winning
You will find yourself
Dancing and singing

Chasing waterfalls
Not settling for streams
Not at all haunted
By what’s inside your dreams

You know it’s not my style
I like to keep it close to the vest
But just this once I feel
I gotta get it off of my chest
And confess

I see you spinning, you’re stuck in your dreams
But they don’t make sense they’re not what they seem

It’s time to wake up!

You’re movin’ in slow motion
There’s no magic potion
Snap out of it
Clear those foggy notions

Look into the mirror
See things a little clearer
You will find the truth
Nothing to fear

La la la la la la…

I’ve said before
You know I like to keep it close to the vest
But once again I feel
I gotta get it off of my chest
Here’s the rest

The more you think the less that you see
And you fall back to what’s in your dreams
And when those nightmares burst at the seams
Then they will become your reality

Awake from your

Your slumber
It’s not your time
Your number is not up

Wake Up!

come-out

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE THRILL OF YOUR TOUCH
Broken hearts for those who dare to feel
Something that’s a little more than real
And for those of you who think I can’t deal
Give it to me I’ve got nerves of steel

I try to slow down but the earth keeps turning
I try to tune out but my ears keep burning
But I won’t give up ‘cause my heart’s still yearning
For someone to fill up the holes of my soul
Quick come here, I think there’s something you oughtta know

It’s the thrill of your touch
It’s the smell of your clothes
It’s the little secrets that nobody else knows

It’s the depth of your soul
It’s the warmth of your smile
Makes me feel like I’m travellin’ on the miracle mile

Open minds for those who dare to dream
Seemingly impossible dreams
Ones featuring new realities
Filled with love peace joy and harmony

I want to believe but love seems fleeting
It’s knockin’ me down and I took a beating
But I’m not a gonner my heart’s still beating
And yearning for someone to make me feel whole
Quick come here, I think there’s something you oughtta know

It’s the thrill of your touch
It’s the smell of your clothes
It’s the little secrets that nobody else knows

It’s the depth of your soul
It’s the warmth of your smile
Makes me feel like I’m travellin’ on the miracle mile

The fear of rejection leaves me shakin’
The bitterest pill I’ve ever taken
But what do you know my heart’s not breakin’
I wanna find someone to have and to hold
Quick come here I think there’s something you oughtta know

It’s the thrill of your touch
It’s the smell of your clothes
It’s the little secrets that nobody else knows

It’s the depth of your soul
It’s the warmth of your smile
Makes me feel like I’m travellin’ on the miracle mile

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IT’S ALRIGHT
I met a girl the other day
Who didn’t speak a lot but had a lot to say
She saw that I was feeling down
And this is what she said

It’s Alright yeah
It’s okay
Yeah it’s alright

I asked her name, she wouldn’t say
Not until she knew my name
I told her and she said “all right”
Now let me see you smile

It’s Alright yeah
It’s okay
Yeah it’s alright

She said before she didn’t make a sound
‘til she took a look around
Saw the reason for her frowns
People were bringin’ her down

So she left that scene behind
Said goodbye to the daily grind
Said goodbye to all in line
Waiting to play with her mind

It’s alright
It’s okay
It’s alright

By this time I began to smile
Her story for me was my trial
She asked me “Now how do you feel?”
And this is what I said

It’s Alright yeah
It’s okay
Yeah it’s alright

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BRIGHT DAY
Tell me do you remember
That lonely day back in December
When you were wishing for holiday cheer
And you were granted a bright new year
The light bulb went off as it became clear

That when tomorrow comes we will have nothing to fear

Tell me do you remember
When we wished to be together
Opportunity called and we broke down the walls
Barriers fell as we heeded the call
And we were together once and for all

So when tomorrow comes we will have nothing to fear

Tell me do you remember
When we thought we’d live forever
Then we slow to a crawl as mortality calls
Did it mean anything or nothing at all
If we can look back and say we had a ball

Then when tomorrow comes we will have nothing to fear

I CAN RUN
I can run and I can hide
But I got what it takes to stay and fight
All night

You can see they’re takin’ sides
On which one of us is gonna crack tonight
Tonight

And what you mean to me
As far as I can see
You gotta lotta nerve to say it ain’t right
A slight

I can run and I can hide
But I got what it takes to stay and fight
All night

And if you stick around you’ll find
My bark plays second fiddle to my bite
That’s right

‘Cause what you think you’ll see
My mission to exceed
All of your expectations regarding my might
and bite

You gotta keep on, you gotta keep on,
You know you gotta gotta keep on movin’ along

I can run and I can hide
But I got what it takes to stay and fight
All night

But if we work together we’ll find
Our wills will align with our minds
Tonight

‘Cause if we plant the seed
Of success we will see
That we’re gonna work together and make it through tonight
Alright

You gotta keep on, you gotta keep on,
You know you gotta gotta keep on movin’ along

FADE AWAY
Tonight there’ll be no next time
No second chances here
So bury it deep down
Where no one ever fears

I watch as you slowly start to fade away
Into the distance
Recesses of my mind
It’s buried deeper down where no one will ever find

I’ve walked a hundred miles
For one of your infectious smiles
I’ve circled ‘round the dial
I’ve paid my dues endured my trials
But I watch as you slowly start to fade away

Mirages are for the desert
I just don’t understand
Does this ever happen
To any other man

I watch as you slowly start to fade away
Into the distance
Recesses of my mind
It’s buried deeper down where no one will ever find

I’ve walked a thousand miles
For one of your infectious smiles
I’ve circled ‘round the dial
I’ve paid my dues endured my trials
But I watch as you slowly start to fade away

Come ‘round this time next year
I’ll be a different man
The one that’s full of “I can’ts”
Simply says “I can”

I’ve walked a million miles
For one of your infectious smiles
I’ve circled ‘round the dial
I’ve paid my dues endured my trials
And now I’m sitting here wearing a victorious smile
I caught you ‘fore you slowly start to fade away

WHAT TO DO?
I lost all sense of reality
It slipped off somewhere in my dreams
I searched all ‘round through my neighborhood
Desperate search for something good

Oh what to do
I thought I learned a thing or two
I thought at least I had a clue
Seems I don’t know what to do
Oh what to do…for you

I’m paralyzed by my ambition
To impress you is my tradition
I’d sing you sweet soft lullabyes
But my lips are locked ‘cause I’m paralyzed

About what to do
I thought I learned a thing or two
I thought at least I had a clue
Seems I don’t know what to do
Oh what to do…for you

I cleared my head of uncertainty
One day wandering down my street
Answers ‘peared ‘fore my very eyes
I reached out pulled them from the sky

And then I knew
I knew I learned a thing or two
I knew at least I had a clue
Turns out that all I had to do is what I do
Oh what to do is what I do…for you

TAKE THE PAIN AWAY
Open up your mind check it out see what’s inside
Don’t you know the lies you hide they are the ties that bind
What you see is real and what is real is how you feel
And I know how you feel

Let me take the pain away (4x)
And what you see is real
And what is real is all in how you feel

Daydream reels are moments that you steal from what is real
Don’t you know they don’t allow you all the time you need to heal
Every now and then you need a friend to share the pain
And my Love to help you heal

Let me take the pain away (4x)
And what you see is real
And what is real is all in how you feel

Thought a lot about what you said and
Gave it up ‘cause it blew my mind away
Runnin’ faster than all your problems
Won’t make them go away
Let me take the pain away

Let me take the pain away (4x)
And what you see is real
And what is real is all in how you feel

WIPE YOUR TEARS AWAY
In a room where you once fantasized
Where you keep all your dreams locked inside
Don’t you know you can tell me I won’t mind
There are lies that you just cannot hide
There are secrets you just can’t disguise
Don’t you know you can tell me I won’t mind
Yeah!

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away yeah
Wipe your tears away

Come on in the battle is inside
What will win is for you to decide
Don’t you know the solution’s in your mind
Yeah!

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away yeah
Wipe your tears away

There are some things that you just cannot hide
Secrets and lies that you just can’t disguise
Don’t you know that you can tell me I won’t mind
Pressure is mounting do you wonder why
Your insides are begging for it to subside
Don’t you know the solutions in your mind

You keep all your dreams deep inside
Lock the door and watch as your dreams subside
Don’t you know you can tell me
So open your eyes and let me wipe your tears away

Wipe your tears away

FOLLOW ME
You light up the sun no one can put it out
I never really had a doubt
And you’re the only one who knows what I’m about
I’m kinda hard to figure out

And when you come home sauntering in through the door
I know right then and there I love you more

Follow me into the sea
And lay with me under the tree
Laughter shared by you and me
Will live on in our memories
Follow me into our dreams
We’ll recreate our favorite scenes
Love that’s shared by you and me
Will last eternally

You brighten the night, It can’t put up a fight
It really is quite a sight
And you soared through my life and brought me for a ride
It’s really been quite a ride

Your feel good nature is infectious to my grin
To be immune would simply be a sin

Follow me into the sea
And lay with me under the tree
Laughter shared by you and me
Will live on in our memories
Follow me into our dreams
We’ll recreate our favorite scenes
Love that’s shared by you and me
Will last eternally

QUARTER TO MIDNIGHT
Come on get ahold of yourself it’s a quarter to midnight
And something hangin’ up in the air tells me somethin’ ain’t quite right
You better get ahold of yourself
The rest of your life is up on the shelf
Waiting for you to bring it down so don’t put up a fight
Get ahold of yourself it’s a quarter to midnight

Don’t leave all your dreams by the side of the road
Or bury them deep where nobody else goes

Your life is flashin’ ‘fore your very eyes
Mortified by the tunnel’s light
So you better get your affairs in order it’s a quarter to midnight
Get ahold of yourself it’s a quarter to midnight

Don’t borrow sorrow from tomorrow
You’ll be livin’ on death row
And you’ve got quite a bit to live for
To be knockin’ on death’s door
Time it may be tickin’ I know
But you’ve still got a bit left to go
Time to right some wrongs and move on
Enjoy the rest of the show
Get ahold of yourself it’s a quarter to midnight

Don’t leave all your dreams by the side of the road
Or bury them deep where nobody else goes

Your life is flashin’ ‘fore your very eyes
Mortified by the tunnel’s light
So you better get your affairs in order it’s a quarter to midnight
Get ahold of yourself it’s a quarter to midnight

Get ahold of yourself it’s a quarter to midnight

SOMEONE SAID
Someone said the other day
No more games to play
Tell me what are you gonna do now?
Well you just can’t forget it
No you just can’t forget it
The weight of the world twice over’s
Got you pinned down to the bed

Someone said the other day
No more place to stay
Tell me what are you gonna do now?
Well you live to regret it
Oh you live to regret it
The weight of the world twice over’s
Gotten deep into your head

Someone said the other day
No more price to pay
Tell me what are you gonna do now?
Oh you get to forget it
Yes you get to forget it
The weight of the world twice over’s
Gone home back to bed
