Marilyn 02:46
Marilyn, I can hear you laughing Underneath the jasmine tree I close my eyes and all I see is you Singing like a jailbird, you broke free Of this aching world Now what are all the rest of us to do Do you see your daughter dancing Making her way up the mountain Burying her shame beneath the bluff Daisies on their pulpits preaching Fear is not of you and me and Love by any other name is love Did you meet the lions at the gates of paradise, or were they open wide I can’t see what waits for us, Beyond the great divide But if I can’t reach your heaven I’ll wait for you in mine Did you meet the lions at the gates of paradise, or were they open wide I can’t see what waits for us, Beyond the great divide But if I can’t reach your heaven I’ll wait for you in mine Marilyn, I can hear you laughing Underneath the jasmine tree I close my eyes and all I see is you

On the radio, on the radio, on the radio Something about a bridge Made me think of you, made me think of you, made me think of you Back when we were kids We cover up our secrets Underneath the neon Tell me what am I on On the radio, on the radio, on the radio Something about a bridge Made me think of you, made me think of you, made me think of you Back when we were kids The weatherman’s sayin’ somethin’ ‘Bout some summer storms Made me think of When your heart was true I don’t want to hear it I don’t want to hear it I don’t want to hear the sound of you On the radio, on the radio, on the radio Something about a bridge Made me think of you, made me think of you, made me think of you Back when we were kids On the radio (I don’t wanna hear it!) On the radio (I don’t wanna hear it!) On the radio (I don’t wanna hear it!) Something about a bridge Made me think of you (I don’t wanna hear it!) Made me think of you (I don’t wanna hear it!) Made me think of you (I don’t wanna hear it!) Back when we were kids

You Are all I need You’re bright like the sunshine, steady like a train Cuttin’ through the rain I look back through the moonlight And I hope in due time I’m more than just another name No time left Don’t hold your breath As you pass my way ‘Cause I ain’t nothin’ special Just another trestle Through the bay You Are always there for me But I hate when we’re apart And lately I’m not too fond of when we’re together Because I know one day we’ll part And it plays out in my heart Now more than ever No time left Don’t hold your breath As you pass my way ‘Cause I ain’t nothin’ special Just another trestle Through the bay You’re all I want You’re all I need But don’t let me keep ya Don’t pity me You’re all I want You’re all I need But don’t let me keep ya Don’t pity me No time left Don’t hold your breath As you pass my way ‘Cause I ain’t nothin’ special Just another trestle Through the bay Through the bay Through the bay

I belong in waves of blue behind me Through it all your light was always blinding Won’t stop burning the candle I’ve seen it all fall to the floor (I’ve seen it before) Together side by side forevermore (And more, and more, and more) Times we spent will always be reminding Of all the things you said that kept me smiling Takes too much to break us They’d like to know if they can (I’ve seen it before) All and all it’s too much to demand (Demand, demand, demand) They may be bending the space between us But their best efforts all fail to land I belong in waves of blue behind me Through it all your light was always blinding I belong in waves of blue behind me
7.
I feel alone when I’m not with you You seem so far away I’m restless, wanna come back to you I know we’ll find a way I’m starting from the ground up, darlin’ With steel beams and stone I trust the bridge will hold this weight up And give this heart a home Tides may be risin’ But nothing will stop you and I Our stars shine brighter when Our eyes are fixed on the sky On this bridge you and I You and I I see your light when I’m in darkness It’s cutting through my haze If I get lost you keep my rail straight Carry my love across the bay These rivets seem to hold these pieces The beams I build for you My counterweight is set and ready And I know that yours is too Tides are risin’ Nothin’s gonna keep this water down Our stars shine brighter when We gaze into the sky above this town Hearts are aligning Nothing will stop you and I Our stars shine brighter when Our eyes are fixed on the sky On this bridge you and I You and I

You picked me up at county in a limo with a wedding band Honeymoon in Reno then we headed off to Burning Man I was tripping with my missus, tryin’ to make out on the desert sand Psychedelic user, I’m a loser with a winning hand Psilocybin silly, mescaline in the fridge Steady lunaticin’ like a Wiccan on a crocodile bridge Chilling at the clinic cause my baby’s biological clock Chatting up the doctor with a roll of 20s up in my sock I’m a bee in a trap ‘cause I gotta keep my honey in hive Crying like a gator, I know I’m worth more dead than alive Tiki torch militia lining up on the ridge Steady lunaticin’ like a Wiccan on a crocodile bridge On a crocodile bridge Well I been to Mississippi, down to New Orleans I’ve got blood in every city where the streets are mean When I clean up my act you’re going to see me on the silver screen Keeping out of trouble ‘cept a couple little scrapes with the law Showing up the churches with my crucifix and chicken claw Drinking holy water cause I gotta keep the spirit inside And I’m back on my meds ‘cause I got a little Jekyll and Hyde I cut out my heart, I put it back in the fridge Instead of lunaticin’ like a Wiccan on a crocodile bridge The crocodile bridge The crocodile bridge The crocodile bridge
9.
I see your face in the mirror, staring back at me I know the things you don’t want to see There’s a power deep inside Those people don’t see you Not the way that I do There’s perfection inside of you But you still have to lie When you show us on the outside What you’ve been hiding Too long a time It’s a hard road we have to follow There’s a short bridge between fear and acceptance Just know that I am here on the other side (I am here on the other side) You’re not quite sure how you fit in life But there’s a calling you can’t deny A love you can’t classify (classify) And you had to learn it the hardest way I can’t teach you but I’m here to stay We’ve got so much pride When you show us on the outside What you’ve been hiding Too long a time It’s a hard road we have to follow (it’s a hard road) There’s a short bridge between fear and acceptance Just know that I am here on the other side (I am here on the other side) A rising tide lifts all ships in the harbor You don’t have to wonder We will be by your side, by your side There’s a short bridge between fear and acceptance Just know that we are here on the other side (I will be on your side) There’s a short bridge between fear and acceptance (fear and acceptance) Just know that we are here on the other side (here on the other side) Just know that we are here on the other side (here on the other side) Just know that I am here
10.
Walkin’ so long Your feet are so tired With push and some pull Between truth and lyin’ When everybody can’t dance anymore They pick themselves up off the damn floor You can follow in my footsteps As we both go somewhere new But you can’t have my shoes I’ll be walkin’ right next to you Politely, I refuse I'll be me and you be you (Shoobop doobop Chewbop) As I cross the bay I stop and stand in place As time drifts away With the shifting waves When everybody can’t dance anymore We pick ourselves up off the damn floor You can follow in my footsteps As we both go somewhere new You can’t have my shoes I’ll be walkin’ right next to you Politely, I refuse I'll be me and you be you (Shoobop doobop Chewbop)

Down Pour 03:40
You don't have to speak, your eyes already said it But haven’t really said it all Flowers only grow because of the rainfall Standing tall isn't always tall It’s okay to shed a tear if you need to Nurse your spirits ‘til they're clean Let them soak in deep, the roots need their attention A faulty structure never keeps This is the tale of every downpour Everybody’s felt the first few drops It's never meant to stop so there's no need to stop it Not everything you leave is lost Don’t apologize for anything you’re feeling I won’t pretend to understand I’ll just lend an ear when shit starts getting heavy It's not a crime to need a hand I'm not here to separate you from your sadness I'm here to help you face its rage You claim to be a basketcase But that just means you're able To carry more than what you thought you could This is the tale of every downpour Everybody’s felt the first few drops It's never meant to stop so there's no need to stop it Not everything you leave is lost Feel free to lean on me when you can't hold yourself up Let the current send your pain out to open waters I would carry you, if you lost your footing This is the tale of every downpour Everybody’s felt the first few drops It’s never meant to stop so there’s no need to stop it Not everything you leave is lost This is the tale of every downpour Everybody’s felt the first few drops It’s never meant to stop so there’s no need to stop it Not everything you leave is lost
12.
Ever Almost 03:25
It’s been a long time my friend And I’ve been so afraid That words left unspoken Would have left us broken But you feel exactly the same Walking the shore Through the mist and the moonlight Along the divide Where the waves kiss the land Trying to unravel the distance We’ve traveled Toeing the line That we drew in the sand Sitting with you now Wishing I could say How could I have ever almost Let you get away Do you remember Lying together Thinking forever could wait Now I can’t believe that When I saw you leaving I didn’t ask you to stay Waiting to align Tracing figure eights Running through our time Giving up the reins Sitting with you now Wishing I could say How could I have ever almost Let you get away Sitting with you now Wishing I could say How could I have ever almost Let you get away Sitting with you now Wishing I could say How could I have ever almost Let you get away
13.
I think of you every time I see the moon in my window Tied to the mast and your shadows cast in my room I’m clear on it now Oh to have loved you, even one day Oh to have loved you Counterweights swing down, feel the town growing up all around me Silver and old, taking root in my soul - you’re like family You’re so dear to me now Oh to have loved you, even one day Oh to have loved you, even one day, even one day Cold rain and ice, in the springtime the pilings stain to rust The beauty and light will remain after you and I are dust I’m clear on it now - you’re so dear to me now Oh to have loved you, even one day Oh to have loved you, you light my way, you light my way
14.

15.
I know just what you’ve been up to You let them all just ride over you I stayed with you all this time, the way you treat me, it’s a crime You open up for anyone, any vessel that may come Let me caress your shiny beams The way you glisten makes me scream I hate how bad I want you but I love the things you do Yeah, you’re a bad bridge You get me to the other side, you love to be objectified You bad bridge The way you go down You ain’t the only bridge in this town And I’ve got options just a few blocks down Never knew what I can feel ‘til I rolled upon your steel When the other bridges all are gone, you’ll still be standing hot and strong Oh! Let me caress your shiny beams The way you glisten makes me scream I hate how bad I want you but I love the things you do Yeah, you’re a bad bridge You get me to the other side, you love to be objectified You bad bridge The way you go down You need some more grease for your gears?

Spit 3 Times 03:49
I hear that dark holler Coming up on deep waters Combing through those words My grandmother said Nickel in the wine Spit three times (Chant) Tap the accelerator Treads on the separator Superstition going to my head Can’t remember which one it was That’ll keep me from dying To get me over to the other side I got to keep on trying Don’t step on a crack Salt down your back Nickel in the wine Spit three times Wish but don’t tell One past twelve Don’t step on a crack Salt down your back Nickel in the wine Spit three times (Chant) Sunset like glass shattered Beneath me steel rattles Don’t rush or you might miss it Touch that third rivet Can’t remember which one it was That’ll keep me from dying To get me over to the other side I got to keep on trying Lift your feet when you cross the rail Turn your head at a black cat’s tail Wish but don’t tell One past twelve Don’t step on a crack Salt down your back Nickel in the wine Spit three times (Chant x2)
17.
I was born in the 30s So simple and clean Lines of perfection, you built what you need You never once mentioned The need for suspension Just someone so solid Just something concrete I carry you over (I carry you over) the deepest waters (the deepest waters) I’m arching my back (I’m arching my back), I wait for your still (I wait for you still), The way that you wanted (the way that you wanted), I never flaunted (I never flaunted) But what if I falter? I know that you won’t need me But what about us? What about us? What about us? I know that you won’t need me But what about us? What about us? What about us? And this story that you lead As time carried over Support grew so weak I know that you noticed, our future was bleak I wasted and wondered If our days were numbered But baby I need you My steel’s unchanged You wonder about him (you wonder about him), it’s in your eyes (it’s in your eyes) But we’re so timeless (but we’re so timeless), don’t you realize? (don’t you realize?) I can be useful (I can be useful), but baby don’t leave (but baby don’t leave) I know that he’s stronger, I know that you don’t need me But what about us? What about us? What about us? I know that you don’t need me But what about us? What about us? What about us? I’m strong and I’m breaking I’m here and I’m vacant Withstanding the rages of time You know I’ll be waiting for you What about us? What about us? I know that you don’t need me But what about us? What about us? What about us? I know that you don’t need me But what about us?

First Kiss 04:07
Just another day Poured myself a cup Children off to school Husband just woke up I got your letter Finally arrived Postmark dated 1985 Do I open up the past? Is it too late for us to last? From the first kiss It all started on the bridge You never left my mind I kept you locked inside From the first kiss We were only kids Told me we would make it I waited, I waited, I waited for you Is this just fate? Messing with my head I’m beyond the point Of obsessing over things unsaid Suspension Help me then I fell You know I’ve always wished you well But I’m not the girl you once knew You gave a present of the past But I’m over you at last From the first kiss It all started on the bridge You never left my mind I kept you locked inside From the first kiss We were only kids Told me we would make it You know I waited, I waited, I waited for you We really tried, darling, to say the least But I had to move on and do what was best for me You made your promise, I held on But our time is long gone It all started on the bridge You never left my mind I kept you locked inside From the first kiss We were only kids Told me we would make it You know I waited, I waited From the first kiss We were only kids Told me we would make it But we never, never, never Did

Is it too late to cross this bridge; To find out which is which? It’s truth be told or all lies. Is it real or fantasy; Baby, what are we? It’s high time that we decide. Maybe it’s time we let our guards down (guards down), And move on to the other side. It’s now or never To make this better, So let’s just give it a try. You will have me forever, In foul or fair weather; I’ll put my heart on the line. Maybe it’s time we let our guard down (guard down), And move on to the other side. However, it seems, You’re still in my dreams, So I guess I just can’t let you go. What’s meant to be, Surely will be, So I know you’ll find your way back home. Is it too late to cross this bridge? It’s high time that we decide. Should you be Wayfaring Biding your time, There’s always A way to ease Your mind. However, it seems, You’re still in my dreams, So I guess I just can’t let you go. What’s meant to be, Surely will be, So I know you’ll find your way back home. However, it seems, You’re still in my dreams, So I guess I just can’t let you go.

22.
If I could build a bridge that stretches all the way to you We could paint a summer scene, we two Lapis all across the bay, silver for the stars in flight If I could build a bridge Tonight I would follow my heart But it doesn’t know where you are Or if you’d be there waiting for me I’d build a bridge if I could then I’d build it to you And I would line it in gold and it would get me over These lonely nights so I could feel something new Out of the darkness I’d cross under the light of the moon If I could build a bridge to you I would follow my heart But it doesn’t know where you are Or if you’d be there waiting for me If I could build a bridge, I’d be working overtime Concrete and steel, laboring day and night Blueprints and stolen glances to prove all the lines are true If I could build a bridge, I’d build it to you CHARLES: I would follow my heart KATE: But it doesn’t know where you are MICHAEL: Or if you’d be there waiting for me ALL: And in this dream of mine, you call me up And say, “I want you to” Then I build a bridge to you Then I build a bridge to you
23.
I saw you out on the edge of town, baby Lookin’ cross on the other side Somethin’s got yo full attention You think he’s got a better ride I can’t cross this bridge again, baby I’m a man and I got pride I’ve been waiting here all winter I’m hot and tired up in these clothes Going to wait for you all summer Missing you like no one knows I won’t cross that bridge for you, baby Looks like we’re on two different roads Well, I’m not getting into trouble I’m not staying up all night I’m drunk up and I’m seeing double Don’t have it in me to fight Are you the devil - I asked around nobody say Oooh - it’s just that way So where you going now, sugar I’ve got a mind to lose my mind Well, I haven’t seen you in so long, darlin’ Can’t bear the passing of time I’m not crossing that bridge again, baby Don’t even know if you’re alive I’m the town’s biggest fool Wastin’ all of my years Town won’t see my pain, no ‘Cause the rain will hide my tears Crossing this bridge no mo’ Done all I can to make you stay Oooh - it’s just that way Oooh - it’s just that way I’m crossing this bridge again In this cold rain all alone I got stuck here in the middle Shakin’ soaked down to the bone Hear me when I say Oooh - it’s just that way Oooh - it’s just that way Oooh - it’s just that way
24.
Cross Over 04:59
I wanted to know how to love your way. I’ll take the blame Fighting through the night. Could we even last? Shaking off our past, I couldn’t see far. Tell me the truth - I know it’s hard Tell me the truth - I know it’s wrong Tell me the truth - when I see that bridge to the other side I’ll cross over, I’ll cross over Thought it was going well, until I took a fall, and I lost it all Tried to turn it all around and found once I bottomed out, ditched my self doubt I knew my purpose was clear Tell me the truth - you know it’s hard Tell me the truth - you know it’s wrong Tell me the truth - when one bridge lifts up another comes down And you’ll cross over, you’ll cross over, you’ll cross over When I take up in the morning, and the sun rises over my life My belief is steeled, a presence in time, as we all can confirm this simple life Is just a bridge from birth to the end We all know it’s true - we all begin the same We all know it’s true - and we all go out alike We all know it’s true - that love is the bridge from person to person to person When we cross over, when we cross over When we cross over, when we cross over When we cross over When we cross over, when we cross over When we cross over When we cross over When we cross over When we cross over
25.
I thought I had known That a bridge made of stone Would be safe and sound I was mistaken When I started shaking On solid ground We were divided Once I had decided To break my heart Choosing between Chasing love And my dreams is Tearing me apart The swing and the sway And the things that we say to ourselves The swing and the sway And the things that we say to ourselves Down to the wire, I started a fire And went down in flames I talked myself in and I walked myself out Some things never change I’ve been living with one foot out the door Been living with one foot out the door, been living with one foot out the door, Been living with one foot out the door Been living with one foot out the door and now it’s closing With the swing and the sway and the things that we say to ourselves The swing and the sway and the things that we say to ourselves The swing and the sway and the things that we say to ourselves
26.
Bridges to the same shores Suffering the same wars Waiting for the word to be sent Who’s it gonna be When they send the decree Who’ll get the punishment I’ve been a shelter to the drifter Sometimes the grifter Now they wanna tear me down Oh the games that are played And the money that’s paid To the people who run this town Run it down, into the ground Run it down, into the ground I’ve heard it all said That I’d be better off dead And if that wish comes true You’d better watch your back I’m gonna tell you that Someday they’ll be coming for you They’re coming for you They’re coming for you As hard as they try They’re never gonna tear me down As hard as they try They’re never gonna tear me down Hold my hands high I’m gonna hold my ground, gonna hold my ground As hard as they try They’re never gonna tear me down As hard as they try They’re never gonna tear me down Hold my hands high I’m gonna hold my ground, hold my ground As hard as they try They’re never gonna tear me down As hard as they try They’re never gonna tear me down
27.
In the city they got people Lots and lots of people Looks like opportunity Knocking at my door But everybody’s crazy I want less and they want more Then I fly into a little town Smack upside the bay I cross the bridge another year And once again I say “Why don’t I live here?” Never been here in December I got boots I’ve never worn Call me your fairweather friend Kale-fed and city-born Still I ask myself Why don’t I live here? Every blade of grass And every wildflower Wasting the whole afternoon To stare at clouds for hours Why don’t I live here? I always said “such a nice place to visit” I always said I’m gonna miss it when I’m gone Wide open sky Where the wind has room to blow Different from that crowded town The only one I know Why, why, why don’t I live here? Sitting at the table Playing majors and minors You can always find me at the Holiday diner Why don’t I live here? Why don’t I live here? Why don’t I live here? Back so many times I’ve used up all my rhymes Why don’t I live here?
28.
Still Bridge 03:36
I cross the riptides when I’m sleeping Passage granted behind my eyes Footsteps speak beyond these waters Steel diamonds in the dark Pieces lost in days that break Air is idle, my body shakes Loneliness has yielded peace Stillness moves inside of me Bearings roll to meet the thunder As it stands, I start to freeze Moments born amidst the plunder Dress themselves as memories Pieces lost in days that break Swift surrender to us at stake Loneliness has yielded peace In prison, watchmen set me free
29.
Holiday 03:08
All this chaos and you’re caught in the middle Wasting your best years on a second-hand dream Hoping the pressure gonna give just a little Before you know it you’ll be breathing easy If you’re spinning stories in the dead of night A stream of static with no end in sight I know this world can be a troublin’ place Give me a call Anytime You want a holiday Sometimes it feels like it won’t get any better It’s alright to just take your time Put down your bat, honey, pick up a feather Get it all out then leave it behind If you’re spinning stories in the dead of night A stream of static with no end in sight I know this world can be a troublin’ place Give me a call Anytime You want a holiday Give me a call Anytime You want a holiday Well, we all fall apart And we all been broken hearted Lord knows, I’ll be there again The storms keep comin’ But I will tell you somethin’ I’ll always give you shelter, my friend, my friend If you’re spinning stories in the dead of night A stream of static with no end in sight I know this world can be a troublin’ place Give me a call Anytime You want a holiday Give me a call Anytime You want a holiday Give me a call Anytime You want a holiday

I remember the last time that we walked together And how those lights on the bridge lit up the bay I held your hand in mine, said that we’d be forever And you kept singing our song by the light on the bay The light on the bay, feels like yesterday The light on the bay, all our memories play In the light on the bay I keep walking around like I’m lost in a daydream I been carrying on but it just ain’t the same All those memories gone, I still carry you with me (oh yeah) And I keep singing our song by the light on the bay The light on the bay, feels like yesterday The light on the bay, all our memories stay In the light on the bay The light on the bay, feels like yesterday The light on the bay, where all our memories play I held your hand in mine, said that we’d be forever (oh yeah) So I keep singing our songs by the light on the bay So I keep singing our songs by the light on the bay

Flow 03:07
I try to walk away, but you’d only follow me What can I do to make you see I just want you to go away So I’ll walk to the bridge just to clear my mind Leave all my thoughts and my fears behind I will let it go I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I wanna KNOW (what the water knows) I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I wanna KNOW (what the water knows) Always talking at me speaking your mind But God forbid I ever try to speak mine To tell you truly, it’s really pissing me off To forget what you did well I’ll run and hide Ghosts from the past are eating me alive I will go where the water goes I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I wanna KNOW (what the water knows) I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I wanna KNOW (what the water knows) I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I’m gonna KNOW (what the water knows) I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I will KNOW (what the water knows) I will FLOW (where the water goes) I will GO (where the water flows) I’m gonna KNOW (what the water knows)

Phantom Limb 02:52
Are you the new person drawn toward me? To begin with, take warning, I’m not what I seem, existing half in a dream I am seized by your goodness of spirit Brushing up against my best judgement, for my heart is hard and sibilant And I’ll always have my doubts This reality is wearing thin, I can feel it start to splinter With half a heart, it’s always grim in winter Let me hold you as the light grows dim, this heart makes perfect tinder The pain is here in parts that I have trimmed, just like a phantom limb Could you ever find me worth trusting? To continue, you must see, I stand on real ground Have you not thought, O dreamer, You are half in and half out? This reality is wearing thin, I can feel it start to splinter With half a heart, it’s always grim in winter Let me hold you as the light grows dim, this heart makes perfect tinder The pain is here in parts that I have trimmed You’ll bridge the worlds and I’ll let you in, it will only leave you bitter The pain is here, in parts that I have trimmed, just like a phantom limb

I hate leaving this town Who is gonna love me now Feels like I’m losing ground But you know I can’t stick around And I keep losing track I always want what I can’t have There’s nothing left to subtract One step forward, two steps back Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh This bridge is where I belong You always know that’s where I’ve gone And I don’t feel like it’s wrong To go and chase a setting sun Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh Woah, oh, oh You fell in love with a fantasy And ended up with a fool like me But you know there’s no other one You are mine, my setting sun
35.
It’s a new day, y’all Like a fish out of water Trying to cross the sea Now I just can’t act on What I just can’t see Like a bridge to nowhere Now it just can’t be My own imagination, yeah Won’t set me free No bridge uncrossable No dream impossible Beams of steel and stone and sand Love’s divine mind in hand So I called up the courage I had inside of me And I took that first step Toward being free Now I’ve joined the party That was thrown for me And I took my fear Tossed it in the sea No bridge uncrossable No dream impossible Beams of steel and stone and sand Love’s divine mind in hand Tolls and tenders let No pretenders Cross The LINE! No bridge uncrossable No dream impossible Beams of steel and stone and sand Love’s divine mind in hand Money spenders And contenders Wait In TIME! No bridge uncrossable No dream impossible Beams of steel and stone and sand Love’s divine mind in hand

Fishbowl 03:23
Stuck in my head Nowhere to run You keep saying It’s supposed to be fun Trying to pull me across that bridge But I can’t even swim In this fishbowl I’m in You’re always trying To take me for a ride (I wish I could) Close my eyes And let you drive (I know I should) Go with you in vs. the world So simple for you But I’m a complicated girl Hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey I break down in the morning Same old story And you’re still by my side I come down in the evening I ain’t leaving I’m just terrified Hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey Doo doo doo, doo doo doo Doo doo doo, doo doo doo Doo doo doo, doo doo doo Doo doo doo, doo doo doo I break down in the morning Same old story And you’re still by my side I come down in the evening I ain’t leaving I’m just terrified Hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey Stuck in my head Nowhere to run You keep saying It’s supposed to be fun Trying to pull me across that bridge But I can’t even swim In this fishbowl I’m in In this fishbowl I’m in

I’ve been thinkin’ about you How you holdin’ up All that you’ve been through How you holdin’ up And I know that the rain Can make you rusty Well if you need a friend Then you can trust me Ooh, aaaah Ooh, aaaah We’ve all been crossed Once or twice Not everybody Likes to play nice I know you’re strong I know you’re tough But the traffic’s gettin’ heavy How you holdin’ up How you holdin’ up People always Try to bring you down I know I’d be lost Without you around Ooh, aaaah Ooh, aaaah We’ve all been crossed Once or twice Not everybody Likes to play nice I know you’re strong I know you’re tough But the traffic’s gettin’ heavy How you holdin’ up How you holdin’ up How you holdin’ up How you holdin’ up We’ve all been crossed Once or twice Not everybody Likes to play nice I know you’re strong I know you’re tough But the traffic’s getting heavy How you holdin’ up

A spin of the bottle is how she appeared to me with such clarity Wizards, witches, and fairy dust, things that were strange to me are my new reality When I look at her, I see eternity, that’s how she sings to me Walking in air over the black glass Goodness comes from all the seeds we’ve planted And goodness comes from all the songs we play Goodness seeps through all of her foundations When she’s in my life, I can’t lose my way Captured by the neon sign, no vacancy, except for me She has a way of making me feel like she needs it Before I arrived I was lost to the daylight, so harsh and bright But in the peace of the darkness, the world is good to me. I look out and see She’s walking in air over the black glass You see, goodness comes from all the seeds we’ve planted And goodness comes from all the songs we play Goodness seeps through all of her foundations When she’s in my life, I, I can’t lose my way. She tells time to go easy on me She calls me back, she’s always waiting Across that bridge her magic still resides Goodness comes from all the seeds we’ve planted And goodness comes from all the songs we play Goodness seeps through all of her foundations When she’s in my life, I, I can’t lose my way, no When she’s in my life, I, I can’t lose my way

Take Me Home 02:48
We don’t need no vacation This holiday is a-shakin’ You know the giants are wakin’ With all the music we’re makin’ We got identification It’s on the radio station Gonna make you wanna get naked Let’s skip the lame conversation Do you wanna know? You don’t wanna know What happens when the sun goes down Do you wanna know? I’m gonna let you know Ooo you’re lookin’ mighty fine You smell like cherry wine You taste like *** Yeah you got me feelin’ Oww I can’t stop now You got me on lockdown You hit the spot C-c-c-come on, take me home Never seen so much action Collaboration and passion Causing quite a commotion Like an earthquake in the ocean Can’t get no satisfaction And so I keep coming back and You know I’m secretly hopin’ That your door will be open a crack Do you wanna know? You don’t wanna know What happens when the sun goes down Do you wanna know? I’m gonna let you know Ooo you’re lookin’ mighty fine You smell like cherry wine You taste like *** Yeah you got me feelin’ Oww I can’t stop now You got me on lockdown You hit the spot C-c-c-come on, take me home I wanna steel you away, steel you away, steel you away I wanna steel you away Do you wanna know? You don’t wanna know You’re lookin’ mighty fine You smell like cherry wine You taste like *** Yeah you got me feelin’ Oww I can’t stop now You got me on lockdown You hit the spot C-c-c-come on, take me You’re lookin’ mighty fine You smell like cherry wine You taste like *** Yeah you got me feelin’ Oww I can’t stop now You got me on lockdown You hit the spot C-c-c-come on, take me home

I’m Captain Bridgerto and you must sing me a song If you cannot Your life will be gone In order to cross This tune must be grand Or you’ll be trapped on the Island of the Damned Okay Captain Bridgerto Have a taste of this Hear it all, comes the song Of the man with one extra fist With one extra fist I’m the bare knuckle boxing champ Cracking jaws and breaking ribs I love making bones go snap The roar of the crowd makes me go bezerk With the extra fist from god I can do half More work I’m taking all my winnings to spend it on a gal That I heard about from my pirate pal Well that’s not near good enough My ears had no delight Try again my wayward friend Or this is your last night. Okay Captain Bridgerto Here’s my second take The naughty gal Darcy blue Madame by the lake Her eyes red as the devil’s Her heart was brisket black She ‘twas not much to looks at But a hellcat in the sack You better treat her proper Never to get her pissed Or lest you be confronted By her man with the extra fist The first night you meet her she’ll make your dreams true And if she finds you worthy she’ll do the Darcy blue Darcy blue, Darcy blue I loved you from the moment I saw you You were sitting at the bar drinking whiskey from a jar Intoxicated by your sweet perfume Darcy blue (Darcy blue!), Darcy blue (Darcy blue!) I love the way you commandeer the room For only 50 bits she’ll let you kiss her lips oh how I love you, Darcy blue That was a little bit better But still I’m not impressed I’ll give you one final chance Or lay your soul to rest Okay Captain Bridgerto This one is a smash Here’s the story of the taco pirate Lumberjack Cash No parrot on his shoulder just a giant taco bat Pillaging the plunderous in every port he’s at His mighty woody axe swings longly to and fro You know he’s had your good wife if she’s splintered down below The only thing finer than a taco in the hand To eat and drink and forn and fight with Darcy and her man You tales have touched me deeply Before you can go on. I acquiesce to one last request that you play another song Then you may continue Traveling on through I want to hear the Steel Bridge classic “Whiskey and a Brew” When I drink I only drink of two Let’s have a drink now!!
