TEXAS LONGHORNS

 

 

Welcome to Yokohl creek

outside of Mineral King.

Where the people are friendly

Saying anything.

Well, the State is California.

But there is something wrong.

There is a sign there saying

Texas Longhorns.

There's Texas Longhorns

in the State of California.

The heifers don't know that this land ain't free.

Texas Longhorns

in the State of California.

The lucky bulls have no boundaries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I TAKE YOU

I take you,

Take you serious.

Now we're in love.

Heading southwest,

To the city of Love.

I'm putting in the time.

Honey, this ain't no joke.

I got money and a car.

Every thing I want.

But, it ain't enough.

Hey, what about love.

The only thing I do

I do wrong.

Is to take you, take you

In a love song.

The only thing I do

I do wrong.

Is to take you, take you

Into my arms.

I take you, take you serious.

I take you and now we're in love.

Backing it up and taking our time.

Saving up the dollars, saving every dime.

I got looks and ambition.

Every thing you want.

If it ain't about love,

Hey, baby I'm gone.

The only thing I do

I do wrong.

Is to take you, take you

In a love song.

The only thing I do

I do wrong.

Is to love you, love you.

All night long.

I take you, take you serious.

I take you and now we're in love.

The only thing that I do

I do wrong.

THE LAST HOUR

 

 

Oh, my love has been wasted,

Wasted on you.

Baby, you hurt me,

You hurt me good.

Everyone makes mistakes.

Every time you break, me down.

It's the last call.

Getting down to the wire.

We're closing in on the last hour.

It's the last call.

Getting down to the wire.

Every time you take me.

Getting down to the last hour.

Oh, my heart has been bleeding,

Bleeding for you.

EVIL STREAK

 

Taking me cool and cruel.

I'M A STAR TODAY

 

 

In a late morning truck stop,

In a small town coffee shop.

She is pouring it on hot and serving up some.

Her hair pulled back in a blond pony bob,

Countin' on tips, so she can move on.

Gunna make it to the stars.

Penny Joe is her name, you know.

And she drives some broken Buick.

She hadn't enough dough for a fancy car.

Her money saved up in her sock drawer.

Countin' on when she could move on.

Gunna make it someday, far.

A little town sure talks a lot

And every knows her.

They tease her about being a star, someday.

She smiles and laughs a lot,

'Honey, I already am a star.

Baby, I'm a star today."

Baby, I'm a star today.

Brighter than a smile, she'd say.

Baby, I'm a star today.

For you all.

Baby, I'm a star today.

Higher than the sky, she'd say.

Baby, I'm a star today."

She makes you feel glad that you had come

To a small town hold in the wall.

Where life is slow and talk is proud.

And whenever I'm low, I think of her.

Serving up jokes and making up toast.

I know in my heart, that she's right, somehow.

Baby, I'm a star today."

Baby, I'm a star today.

Brighter than a smile, she'd say.

Baby, I'm a star today.

For you all.

Baby, I'm a star today.

Higher than the sky, she'd say.

Baby, I'm a star today."

BITCH IN BLACK

 

 

She knew the moment,

She put on the glasses.

She was stunning in a black dress and pearls.

So, she took the car and filled the gas up

Before heading out of town to a bar.

Taking 101 North toward the shore.

All dressed up

She was a

Bitch in black.

He couldn't ask for more

He fell in love with a

Bitch in black.

The second she came in the door.

He guided toward her

To ask for her number.

He was the kind of guy woman ignored.

But, he had to have her,

And he had to ask her, so,

He caught her as she came in the door.

He could see what she was there for.

She was a

bitch in black.

He couldn't ask for more

He fell in love with a

Bitch in black.

The second she came in the door.

She knew the moment

He came up to ask

What he was going to say to her.

So, she took his hand and whispered in his ear.

Exactly what he wanted to hear.

The moon was high in the evening sky.

Taking 101 to a hotel.

All dressed up

She was a

Bitch in black.

He couldn't ask for more.

He fell in love with a

Bitch in black.

The second that she walked in the door.

ALL OR NOTHING

The big guy up stairs,

IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND

 

 

I loved him, even though I ran

from the arms of man named Brian.

He had me, even though he didn't know.

I was there,

in the palm of his hand.

Where he held me in his dreams

and his true love came forth to me.

And I knew I could never be free.

I was there,

in the palm of his hand.

His name was to me, a sign.

Even though, I had heard it said

one time.

Before, he could understand.

I was there,

in the palm of his hand.

Where the blend of our spirits would sing.

A true love is a wonderful thing.

And I knew I would always love him.

I was there,

in the palm of his hand.

There are things that are just meant to be.

And you know you can never escape.

The tide of our heavenly fate.

There,

In the palm of his hand.

The Lord blessed our union with gold

and paved us a fortunate road.

For we know in our hearts we are good.

For it is there,

In the palm of his hands.

And our love will conquer all woo

And we'll live with the father and stars.

And together we'll always be.

There,

In the palm of his hand.

There,

In the palm of his hand.

BLOOD IN THE WATER

 

 

I take to the sea, sailing.

I make the waves.

Smiling, over the waters.

The wind at the helm.

Star born and stubborn.

I don't take no lying down.

But, there's blood in the water.

I know he's coming for me.

There's blood in the water.

Somebody come and save me.

I take on the crowd, shaking.

I take their hands.

Shouting over the swarms.

The evening is warm

And he is soft spoken.

He won't take no anyhow.

He knows,

There's blood in the water.

Come, somebody come and help me.

He smells,

blood in the water.

Somebody come and take me, from

Blood in the water.

Somebody come and save me.

WE'RE POETRY IN MOTION

 

 

Let's make love,

He asks of me.

And I couldn't more

Agree.

We're poetry

in motion.

When youíre here with me.

We're poetry in motion.

In between the sheets.

Our bodies move in rhythm

To a single heart beat.

We're poetry in motion.

Like a love machine.

Our love making is magic,

making magic in time.

Moving to the tempo

of your heart and mine.

We're poetry together,

you and I.

Our hearts are beating faster

as further we climb.

It feels so good together,

every time.

We're poetry in motion.

B BOPPIN' DOWN ON BROADWAY

 

 

Feelin' pent up in a gloomy room,

she had to get out and let it loose.

So, she put on a hot little number of boots

and started a walkin' to the grove of this tune.

She was a B Boppin' down

on Broadway, babe.

She had a boogie beat

that was makin' a craze.

She was B Boppin' the town

with her boogie hot boots.

Swinging her hips

and a havin' a hoot.

The traffic backed up in a hectic jam.

Honkin' and beepin', she smiled and waved.

Out of the jam came a police man,

he said, "what you think your doing there, mame."

She was a B Boppin' down

on Broadway, babe.

She had a boogie beat

and she started to wave.

She was B Boppin' the town

with her boogie hot boots.

Swinging her hips

and a havin' a hoot.

She said, "Officer Bob, I'm doing nothing wrong.

I'm just a B Boppin' down on my walk.

I do what I want 'cause you've got your job,

There's nothing you can do but follow along."

She was a B Boppin' down

on Broadway, babe.

She had a boogie beat

that was makin' a craze.

FINGERPRINTS

 

 

Inside the walls of the castle,

for her grace the stones are real.

On her head, the crown of glory.

On the throne, how does it feel?

She's sitting pretty like a princess.

Stomps her foot and starts to pout.

Where's her prince in shining armor?

To give her freedom, let her out.

I want love fingerprints.

Love and promises from a prince.

I want love fingerprints.

Love and promises from a prince.

The King and Queen protect her virtue

like it was a titled prize.

Not a man good enough to touch her

and keep her satisfied.

What's the matter with their daughter?

She had everything a girl could need.

Fine clothes and spending money.

The mote is always good for a swim.

I want love fingerprints.

Love and promises from a prince.

I want love fingerprints.

Love and promises from a prince.

He rode swiftly from the mountains

of a land far and proud.

A prince of determination,

Riding high to win his love.

Then, the prince stormed the castle.

He killed the guards with his sword.

And let loose a noble mistress.

The princess was common now.

I want love fingerprints.

Love and promises from a prince.

I want love fingerprints.

Love and promises from a prince.

CAN'T LIVE TODAY FOR TOMORROW

 

 

Many times I've tried to take it,

I need a little room.

Every time I try to tell you,

you crush my words and make them cold.

I don't love you, really.

As a woman, I have grown.

I need a place to show it,

I need a place that I can call my own.

I can't live today for tomorrow.

I can't live for the day

that you'll be my lover.

Whatever I'm waiting for,

It won't be forever.

I can't live today for tomorrow.

Many times I've known it's over,

I need a little strength.

But every time I try to leave

You hurt my heart and turn to ice.

I can't love you, really.

As a woman, I have known.

I need a place to show it,

I need a place that I can be myself.

I can't live today for tomorrow.

I can't live for the day

that you'll be my lover.

Whatever life will bring,

it will be for the better.

I can't live today for tomorrow.

You give me reason for reason,

You give me belief to leave.

You give me reason for freedom

I need to fill my needs.

I can't love you this way.

If it's hurting, it's no good.

I need a place to bare it.

I need a place where I can heal. my soul.

THE DAY BEFORE TOMARROW

 

 

The day before tomorrow,

I prepared for my future.

The one I planned with you.

I threw away the excess garbage,

to clean the path for new.

Tomorrow would be here soon.

We're just beginning,

beginning to make our life new.

This is the beginning,

the day I start my life with you.

We're just beginning,

to make all our dreams come true.

This is the beginning,

the day I live my life for you.

The day before tomorrow,

I thanked my lucky stars.

The one named after you.

I hoped each day and each night I prayed for,

a love who would be you.

Tomorrow it will come true.

We're just beginning,

beginning to make our life new.

This is the beginning,

the day I start my life with you.

THE STORY IS OVER

 

 

You close the door behind you

and feel the chill in the air.

The moon lights your face.

You drive in silence

and tell yourself you don't care.

She is only playing games.

The story is over,

Your heart is breaking

as it begins to sink in.

The story is over,

your heart is bleeding.

This is the end.

The night is full of hunger

and the emptiness of the morning

breaks your soul,

as you try to keep control.

Her lips were soft and inviting.

She brushed her hair back,

firmly saying the words that

brought tears to her eyes.

The story is over,

and all you wanted

was to make love once last time.

The coldness washes raw,

the aching in your heart.

It breaks your soul

as you try to hold on.

The story is over.

Her words haunt your head,

This really is the end.

And she trembled

as she showed you out the door.

The bonds of love broken,

she never would be yours.

The story is over,

your head in your hands.

This is where it ends.

A man in love can be so fried.

She knows how to make you blind.

She's knows how to take and make

She's going to drive you

through the roof.

The adventurous Brian

with bright eyes I admire

and trophies of former lovers

Sweet Brian,

A pensive mood does suit you

As does your casual shorts.

The picture in my mind relives again.

An appetite, a feeling of him.

The anchor of my purest thoughts

And the subject of my recent work.

Dear Brian,

And I've been put through hell cuz 'em ever since.

Crazy.

All I know, is off they go

Being crazy.

So, I got a job in the local mall.

When flowers started showing up from some guy Bob.

I had to call the shop to make it stop.

So, Bob became a peeping Tom.

Yeah, all the men I know go

Crazy.

All I know, is off they go

Being crazy.

My sister's friend decides to hit on me.

The neighbor calls cuz the guys up in my tree.

And the telephone rings and hangs up again.

The grocery clerk got my number off my checks.

Yeah, all the men I know go

Crazy.

All I know, is off they go

Being crazy.

I was seeing this guy who became a Jesus freak.

He'd bite his hand because sex was a sinful thing.

I told him please, don't ever call.

So, he follows me through a wall mart store.

Yeah, all the men I know go

Crazy.

All I know, is off they go

Being crazy.

Some guy that recently asked me for a date

to the funeral of a beloved friend.

All I know is it happens over again and again.

Yeah, all the men I know go

Crazy.

All I know, is off they go

Being crazy.

Yeah, all the men I know they just go

Some will fight, some will run, I can see them.

Lord, heal their souls.

Come down,

To this world.

With the warm summer rain

wash the pain from their eyes.

With your loving grace

Bring the Lord to their lives.

A MAN LIKE YOU

 

 

I never met a

Man like you.

But, I met alot of jerks

And thatís the truth.

Now, I don't know where my head is

Or what to do.

No, I never met a

Man like you.

I watch the time pass

And I wonder why.

When I close my eyes,

I can see your smile.

Sweet as the sunshine

In the afternoon.

No, I never met a

Man like you.

They say life is short

But it's been long to me.

Waiting for Mr. Right

And a family.

I wish on every star

And on every found penny.

No, I've never met a man

That's been good for me.

I call your telephone

Just to hear it ring.

I hear your male voice

And it makes me want to sing.

Now, the sky is clear and calm

Because your sweeter than love.

And I thank the stars above

for answering me.

No, I never met a man

Who's been good to me.

Your kisses are soft and lingering.

And the air is still whispering

a rhythmic tune.

No, I never met a man like you.

No, I never met a man like you.

LOVE WAS IN MY HOUSE

 

 

When I'm down and lost,

On the spot,

He's suddenly there.

And every time I'm insecure,

He finds a way to care.

Once I dreamed of being loved,

Then, I woke up somehow.

It was right in front of me,

Love was in my house.

When he got up to leave,

It occurred to me.

That anytime I want his love

That he would come to me.

Once I wished to find true love

But that was fantasy.

So, I opened up my eyes

And now I see.

I don't know how I missed the signs,

Every time,

I looked at him.

Because he does his best,

Not to let it show.

But now I know

What is for real.

When I'm sad and blue,

He is who

Is there for me.

And every time I'm unsure,

He finds a way to say.

What else is there to being loved

Then being around.

It was right in front of me,

Love was in my house.

It was right in front of me,

Love was in my house.

GOING FOR BROKE

 

 

In the field of the

California sun.

We live in a world of dreams.

So, I gather up the guitar

And hit the road real hard.

I can do what ever pleases me.

Pack up my life up in the car.

Become a star to fill my needs.

There was a time when life was simple

And I didn't want a thing.

I was happy cooking in the kitchen

where I could sing.

Now, it seems so long ago,

Now, here I'm going for broke

Trying anything to grab that ring.

Going for broke,

Like my heart has been again and again.

It doesn't matter anymore.

It doesn't matter,

It doesn't matter as a matter of fact.

Going for broke

And I'm gunna grab that ring.

"Cause there's nothing,

nothing anyone can take.

Going for broke

All I have left are my hopes.

And there's nothing,

Nothing anyone can save.

GETTING TO YOU NOW

 

 

No more crying,

My sweet Brian.

It's not so bad,

Let me take your hand

And make you happy.

I'm getting to you now.

I'm getting through somehow.

I'm getting to you now.

Love letters,

I write you late in the night,

Well, they just might

be what you are needing.

No more trying,

My sweet Brian,

To find the one.

Let make our music

and make our love.

If we put it into words,

Then soon it won't hurt.

We desire each other.

I'm getting to you now.

I'm getting through somehow.

I'm getting to you now.

I'm getting to you now.

Sweetheart, I'm for real.

Reach out and touch

Me on the shoulder.

I'm getting to you now.

Do you ever feel

That you have been searching

For your true lover

And getting older,

Every day.

No more crying,

My sweet Brain.

I only want to hear the laughter.

Because anyone can see we two

Are meant to be together.

I'm getting to you now.

Does love require of us.

Are we yet living in sober judgement.

And promise as though there was no yesterday.

He was a good natured man

Still living in the past

And dwelling on the meaning of his life.

She waltzed in delighted,

Just knowing how to find him.

Pretty little temptress tonight.

Anyone could feel her heat

As she set her eyes on him

And reminded him of the meaning of life.

But to her he was nothing.

Not a thing.

Nothing but a ten song fling.

'Where have you been all my life?"

was her favorite line

and he struggled just to say the right thing.

When he offered to dance

And he took her by the hand,

She said, "Honey, will you be mind tonight?"

He was floating to the song

That he loved to sing along.

Just waiting for the timing to be right.

But to her he was nothing.

Not a thing.

Nothing but a ten song fling.

MAN AFTER MY HEART

 

 

The wan moon sleeps at night,

Untouched by words.

Too soon the flowing west broods,

He's in one of his moods.

He takes his guitar,

Like it was a woman

And soon it starts to cry.

Give me all the love you've got,

Give me all the love you've got,

Youíre a man after my heart.

The air is soft as skin,

Beautiful and proud.

Aching for a sound,

So he turns it up real loud.

And he plays his guitar,

Like it was a token.

And soon it starts to beg.

Give me all the love you've got,

Give me all the love you've got,

You're a man after my heart.

The shadows fall to one

Of two lovers in need.

His soul is on the rise,

Slow and melancholy.

So, he plays his guitar,

Like it was his lover

And soon it starts to please.

Given all the love he's got,

Given all the love he's got,

He's a man after my heart.

A BAD DAY'S COMING

 

 

You know it's on it's way

when the sun is setting slow.

And you lie awake in bed

with no place for love to go.

The morning breaks,

Your head aches

And your out of coffee and eggs.

A bad day's coming,

A bad day's on it's way.

You know your running late

So you pack up in the car.

Trying to stay awake,

Trying to get ahead is hard.

Given all it takes,

Just trying to make the breaks

And your out of hope and strength. You know,

A bad day's coming,

A bad day's on it's way.

All you want to do is give up

'cause any day without love

can't be good.

You can't satisfy your needs,

You can't change the way you feel

Like nothing good will ever stay.

A bad day's coming,

A bad day's on it's way.
