TEQUILA ‘N ME

Take a bath, read a book
Get a mirror, take a look at yourself 
It’s a wonderful view
Take a walk, take a run
Have yourself some fun
Don’t mind if I do

Next time I see you I’ll be alone
You can leave your boyfriend at home
An’ we can share some G & T’s
Or would you prefer tequila ‘n me

How many men have seen your tattoo?
Was I the last?
You know there’s somethin’ about you girl
Makes me think, I should have left you 
In the past

Take a heart, take a soul
Take the dice, throw a roll 
Oh, maybe you’ll win
Take a trip, take a drive
Try to stay alive
To sleep is a sin

Next time I see you, I’ll be alone
You wanted flowers, but I brought you stones
An’ you can have your Bleecker St.
Or would you prefer tequila ‘n me

Take a bath, read a book
Get a mirror, take a look
At yourself, it’s a wonderful view to see
Or would you prefer tequila ‘n me

ST. ESTEPHE

Met on an interstate 
Bound for Carolina
Sure is hard to get there 
But your soul knows the way 
She had the gift of tongue 
Laurels and medals 
He gave up that life 
Long before today 

She was fourteen years old 
He was barely a man 
Now she’s pickin’ up her life 
An’ he sings with the band 

Her eyes light up the night 
Like itty bits o’ sequin 
She likes his face 
A story of its own 
Company’s a fright
Lonely in Manhattan
Waiting for a savior
Or to see his show

She grew out her hair
Says she wants to be a star
It’s a long road to heaven
From the backseat of a car
A dancer, a poet, a living existential
Nothing St. Estephe cannot save
One can escape from running in circles
Promises die in the grave

Night they finally spent
Winona, Minnesota
A pretty face was born here
The ugly pass away
Holy is the magic
In this life or after
Romance is a stranger
Lets a lover stay

Now she’s twenty years old
And she’s found another man
She’s lookin’ back on life
An’ he sings in the band

WHEN NIGHTFALL COMES AROUND

When nightfall comes around
When nightfall comes around

What a day today has been
I’ve got the whole world upon my shoulder
My future’s bright but my face is thin
I picked the wrong day to be hung over

My time has come
There’s got to be a better way of life
My time has come
And my time is now

When nightfall comes around
And daybreak gets you down
And you feel like you’re the only friend in town
When nightfall comes around

Never know what the nightlife holds
The cards are down and the table’s rusted
I guess the key to growin’ old
Is havin’ lots of fun and not getting busted

My time has come
There’s got to be a better way of life
My time has come
And my time is now

When nightfall comes around
And daybreak gets you down
And you feel like you’re the only friend in town
When nightfall comes around

Take me to a higher mountain
Skyscraper, tell you later

What a day today has been
I’ve got the whole world upon my shoulder
My future’s bright but my face is thin
I picked the wrong day to be hung over

My time has come
There’s got to be a better way of life
My time has come
And my time is now

When nightfall comes around
And daybreak gets you down
And you feel like you’re the only friend in town
When nightfall comes around

CRAWL

Never thought I’d ever come this far
In a million years
It took me twenty days
All I have is time and space
Try to change the world
Free the mind

In the shadow of the moon
Swimming the lagoon 
Nothin’ picayune

Lovers hide while others seek
Some to pass the time
I just slip away
Weary man without a home
Bearded to his knee
Askin’ me for change

Not the kind that pays a toll
Just the kind saves the soul
Saves the soul

I been walkin’ through the rain
There’s been something on my mind
Say you want to go away
But I won’t let you

Just a year ago today
I was younger then
See it in my face
Fashion statements that I make
Heart upon my sleeve
A sweater when it’s cold

Oh, the stories we can tell
One thing I know well
Crawl out of the shell

DESIRÉE

Desirée, Desirée
Desirée, Desirée
She gives me color when I’m needy
She gives me color when I’m grey
Desirée, Oh

Desirée, Desirée
Desirée, Desirée
She gives me color when I’m needy
She gives me color when I’m grey
Desirée, Oh

First met in Havana, dancing the banana
A woman who could move her feet
She’s from New York City
Lookin’ oh so pretty
Movin’ down the Bourbon Street
And why?
Why is it I always fall for women
When I must take flight?
And why?
Why is it I always fall for women of the night?

Desirée, Desirée
Desirée, Desirée
She gives me color when I’m needy
She gives me color when I’m grey
Desirée, Oh

SOMETHING OF EVERYTHING

You want me to see you,
I’ll visit you in September
In your house by the sea
We can take off our clothes
And go splashing in the water
Anything it takes to be free

And I wanna do something before the sky falls
And I wanna do something of everything
To say I’ve done it all

Graduated from High School,
Didn’t have a clue what the hell to do
So I started up this rock ‘n roll band
People call me names,
Some people call me crazy
You don’t have to tell me,
I know what I am

And I wanna do something before the sky falls
And I wanna do something of everything
To say I’ve done it all

You look oh so good
Underneath those pretty lights
Would you mind if we
Rocked your world tonight!!!!

And I wanna do something before the sky falls
And I wanna do something of everything
To say I’ve done it all
Done it all, done it all
Done it all, done it all
Oh, yeah

You want me to see you,
I’ll visit you in September

NAKED PLEASURE

Sit right down and tell a story
I’ll get you another beer
Cuz the times I don’t remember
Are the times that weren’t so clear
Those who call this life adventure
Never know what to do
I guess this is my indenture
Livin’ it through and true

Look at the sun
I do believe he’s sinking
Let us, let us get him
Let us get him on the run

You gotta drive all night long
Listen to your favorite song
’Cause the highway never did no one wrong
This is where I belong

Naked was her first name
Pleasure was her last
Fun and games were her future
Treasure was her past
We would lie awake for hours
Wonderin’ what to do
With her perfume came a madness
I wanted a whiff or two

Look at her now
She’s got the everything
She needs, all she has
All she wants one more time

You gotta drive all night long
Listen to your favorite song
’Cause the highway never did no one wrong
This is where I belong

Thinking of places and miles that I have traveled
Looking at photographs on the floor I have scattered
Time slips away leaving you with a moment
Never ever to be lived again

You gotta drive all night long
Listen to your favorite song
’Cause the highway never did no one wrong
This is where I belong

LIFE IS TOO SHORT

Welcome, won’t you come in
Make yourself home, what’s mine is now yours
Oh, why the grin?
Could it be that your day was golden?
Thanks I’m doing fine
Last night kept me up so now I am tired
Here, have some wine
When the bottle is dry I get so inspired

Hey little girl
Do with me what you will
An’ I’ll do it again and again
For life is too short to just be good friends

I have some secrets to teach
The stories you tell, you have some too
Practicing what we both preach
Tonight is the lesson tomorrow we’re learned

Hey little girl
Do with me what you will
An’ I’ll do it again and again
For life is too short to just be good friends

Pleasure is never a crime
And if it is I’ll gladly do time
There is no goddess to you
Worship I will, I’m down at your altar

Hey little girl
Do with me what you will
An’ I’ll do it again and again
For life is too short to just be good friends

I FELL

When I first went ice skating, I fell on my face
When I first went bike-riding, I fell out of the race
You know, in Autumn, the leaves fall too
And that’s when I fell for you

I fell for you like a skydiver pushed from a plane
Against my will and slightly insane
The moment I woke up, I thought I was dead
But that was your Daddy’s shotgun to my head

ASKING ALL THE QUESTIONS

Lookin’ back on summer now
I think of good intentions
Drivin’ ’round, boys will be boys
Dressing up in laughter and joining the circus
Dancing the dance fools dance when they’ve had a bit too much
Do you know the pleasure of
Taking your time everywhere you go
It’s always adventure, a story to be told

You don’t know me
You’ll never know me again
I’ll be asking all the questions my friend
I say take this with a vengeance
A grander grain of salt
Is what I taste in your concoction

Think about relationships you’ve had in the past
Ten to fifteen years
The mothers and lovers, the crying
And those who you raise a glass to in cheers
It’s good to see you 
Though I can’t recall your name
I guess I don’t want to
And I guess that it is me to blame

You don’t know me
You’ll never know me again
I’ll be asking all the questions my friend
I say take this with a vengeance
A grander grain of salt
Is what I taste in your concoction

Take me to Paradise oh if you please
How I would appreciate it
Take me to Paradise oh if you please
How I would appreciate it (Paradise)
Take me to Paradise oh if you please
How I would appreciate it (Paradise)
Take me to Paradise oh if you please
How I would appreciate it

Looking at your velvet skin
I’ll suffer your damnation
Your crimson hair is too short to
Reach your breasts
Living in your tractor beam, I pause
To hear you breathing
If I pause too long
I may do something I might regret

You don’t know me
You’ll never know me again
I’ll be asking all the questions my friend
I say take this with a vengeance
A grander grain of salt
Is what I taste in your concoction

PRETTY MUCH THE SAME

You’re so pretty 
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew
You’re so pretty
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew

I once loved you, I loved you so bad
But now that I’m with you
You say “goodnight” and that’s too bad

You’re so pretty 
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew
You’re so pretty
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew

Sure, you might have quit smoking
And sure you might have cut your hair
When you look me in my eyes
I still stare, I stare

You’re so pretty 
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew
You’re so pretty
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew

I once loved you, I could not live without
But now that I’m with you, I have my doubts 
Yeah, I have my doubts

You’re so pretty 
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew
You’re so pretty
But you’re pretty much the same girl I knew

I’m lookin’ through your photographs
Think of all the things I would have liked to do
Now, I realize I’ll never have a chance with you
Oh, you

ANOTHER ORIGINAL

Do you wonder what it’s all about?
Do you wonder why we’re here?
These silly games we’re forced to play
And still, we disappear

Do you wonder if she knows your name?
Do you wonder where you are?
Do you know the path you take?
The life of a star

All my life I’ve been chasing
All my life I’ve been knocking at your door
All my love is sliding through my hands
And now, I’m a better man

Better off giving lots of love
It’s a rumor you ignore
I do not know the face I chase
Or what I’m looking for

All my life I’ve been chasing
All my life I’ve been knocking at your door
All my love is sliding through my hands
And now, I’m a better man

Do you wonder what it’s all about?
Do you wonder why we are here
Wonder why you’re sliding through my hands
And now…

Here we are at the end of our tale
Time oh time to go on home
I’m better off by myself
Than I ever was alone

All my life I’ve been chasing
All my life I’ve been knocking at your door
All my love is sliding through my hands
And now, I’m a better man

PLACES

You and I are goin’ places that we’ve never been
Though I might have been there before
Even though we’re drifting on an ocean made of sin
I am always wanting more

Take it from me when I say you’re something special
Don’t turn around and look me in the eye
’Cause you don’t know the way and there’s nothing left to say an’
I won’t let you pass me by

Runnin’ ’round the world with other people
When we’ve always had each other
Lying on the other side of the bed

You and I are goin’ places that we’ve never been
Though I might have been there before
Even though we’re drifting on an ocean made of sin
I am always wanting more

I know what I want when I know which hand I’m holding
Chances are the hand belongs to you
’Cause you’re the only one who mends me when I’m melting from the
Sun who sends his bitter heat waves through

When you have your head so high afloat up in the skies above
You tend to think you’re Jesus but you’re just another toy

You and I are goin’ places that we’ve never been
Though I might have been there before
Even though we’re drifting on an ocean made of sin
I am always wanting more

Say that you’re home or I’ll just keep on driving
Maybe you will call me in a day
’Cause I don’t want to face another night alone in place an’
I just wanna get away

Runnin’, walkin’, flyin’, drivin’
To the nearest paradise where
I can find myself and I can finally seize the day

You and I are goin’ places that we’ve never been
Though I might have been there before
Even though we’re drifting on an ocean made of sin
I am always wanting more

COLLEGE

Girls get all dressed up so they can get messed up
With the boys, who love’em anyway
Boys go out and drink some beer 
To wash away all their fears
And wake up with a headache in the middle of the day
And they do it with so much knowledge
That’s why they’re in college

Livin’ off their parents’ buck, so they can get drunk and fuck
And pretend that they’re so free
Gettin’ grades and goin’ to class, fillin’ up that empty glass
Yeah, they think that’s the way they’re supposed to be 
And they do it with so much knowledge
That’s why they’re in college

I don’t know what they’re doin’ with their lives
Someday they’ll be husbands and wives
Who knows what the future will bring
Who knows what song their children will sing?

Go off and learn to think, but all you learn is how to drink
And to light cigarettes in the wind
These are the greatest years, 
Wash’em down with too many beers
Oh, this is the time that real life begins
And they do it with so much knowledge
That’s why they’re in college

Roll a joint and take a toke, watch your life go up in smoke
But hey, it’s somethin’ to do
Read a book and you’re so aware, but you still don’t care
And the joke, yeah the joke it is on you
And you do it with so much knowledge
That’s why you’re in college
And you do it with so much knowledge
That’s why you’re in college
That’s why you’re in college
