Fear

November

"Fear" Jay Harris

Walls closing in all around me. Soon I’ll be buried alive.
Harder to breathe every second, I wonder should I even try.
Your’e all I have to believe in, what if you wandered away?
Left all alone like an orphan, afraid I have nowhere to stay.

Fear is killing me, Fear’s paralyzing me, Fear won’t leave me alone.
Fear has a hold on me, Fear wont let go of me, fear is a dog I’m a bone.

Just like a leaf in October, waiting for fall winds to blow.
Not in control of what happens. I fall to the cold ground below.
Laying alone still and helpless. Turning to dust and who knows.
Worthless and worn out from trying , right where fear wants me to go.
Chorus

Some days fear takes my mind , places I should never find,
Dark worlds with visions no one should see.
Sick thoughts , hurtful want to dos, pain drenched pitiful attitudes.
I can’t stand what it’s doing to me.

Seems I’ve fought it off like forever, Then one day I just gave in.
The strength that it took me to fight it. No longer came from within.
I turned to things I’m ashamed of. But none of it did any good.
If fear was a thing I could shoot at. I promise right now that I would.

Chorus
Cinnamon River

verse 1
You and I sittin’ by the Cinnamon River,
Talkin’ to the clouds as the sky goes by.
Wish this perfect minute would last forever
By the Cinnamon River, just you and I.
But we both know the minutes don’t last.
If they did, then the past wouldn’t be the past.

chorus
If the Cinnamon River were to ever run dry,
The mountains decide to stop touchin’ the sky,
If the sun doesn’t rise tomorrow, you and I
Will keep on shinin’.

verse 2
Me and you could choose to grow old together,
Build a cabin by the river, raise a family,
Through the summery days and the wintery weather,
We could dance until forever very happily.
Then however long forever might stay,
You and I will keep lovin’ away.

chorus

bridge
And when trouble comes to cover the sun,
We won’t worry ’bout whatever may come.
Doesn’t matter what tomorrow is bringing,
You and I will find a way to keep singing.

chorus
He Can't Forget

He Can’t Forget
Lyrics by Patricia Bishop / Music and vocals by Jesse Navarro

V1
He’s angry at the man in the moon up in the sky
For sending down dreams that make him wanna cry
The morning sun confirms what he needed to confess
Dreams of her were all he really had left

Chorus
So, he surrenders
And remembers
The way they once were
He doesn’t hide it
Or try to fight it
He can’t forget
He can’t forget ….. about her

V2
She filled an empty space in the center of his world
His whole universe revolved around the girl
He hasn’t seen a star since the day he fell apart
He depended on them to heal his broken-down heart

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
He feels her slowly dancing in his arms
Hears her singing their silly love song
And he waits …. for a kiss …
From her bubblegum lips

Out Chorus
So, he surrenders
And remembers
The way they once were
He doesn’t hide it
Or try to fight it…
He can’t forget …. about her

So, he surrenders
He remembers
The way they once …. were
He doesn’t hide it
Or try to fight it
He can’t forget
Can’t forget …. about her
He doesn’t hide it
Or try to fight it
He can’t forget …. about her

But I Did

Pre-Chorus:
I know this’ll lead to disaster.

Chorus:
I had no reason to look back
But I did
Had no good reason to turn back
But I did
Not one right reason to go back there but I did
I knew not to go back
But god damn, I did

Verse 1:
My fuse was lit a long time ago
At anytime I’m bound to blow
And I’ve run the hard line every day
But as sure as time will turn away
I’m waiting and don’t have much left to say
Yea I’m waiting and all I can do is pray

Chorus:
I had no reason to look back
But I did
Had no good reason to turn back
But I did
Not one right reason to go back there but I did
I knew not to go back
But god damn, I did

Verse 2:
Those clock hands keep on turning around
And I keep my ear pressed to the ground
I have to stay one step ahead
of the debt of the cards, of the hand I was dealt
I’m waiting for what the fortune teller says
Yea I’m waiting but the fortune teller is dead

Solo:

Bridge:
I know this’ll lead to disaster
None of the reasons matter
Once I’ve turn around
And I know back there is a feeling
One that’ll send me reeling
And never let me go

Chorus:
I had no reason to look back
But I did
Had no good reason to turn back
But I did
Not one right reason to go back there but I did

I had no reason to look back
But I did
I did
I did
god damn, I …

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love
Dan DeHart 2021

1.
I wish that I could thank you for saving my life on that cold lonely rainy night
Tossed out on the freeway, headlights screaming by, with not a friend in sight
You called me to your side and held me very tight and let me know
everything was going to be alright

Chorus
I was just a stray dog, not even with a name
You gave a name to me, that makes me who I am
Then I gave you something that no man can give
I gave you unconditional love

2.
You taught me how to play, how to chase a ball with you. I loved our daily walks and you did too
And then you fell in love and I fell for her too. I knew before you knew, she was the one for you
And when my time has come, please don’t grieve for me
I will wait at the pearly gates and run straight to you

Chorus
I was just a stray dog, not even with a name
You gave a name to me, that makes me who I am
Then I gave you something that no man can give
I gave you unconditional love

Tag
I gave you unconditional love.


Washin' The Wheels

2022

I appreciate all the suggestions. I switched verses 1 and 2, and made some other lyric edits; hank you for helping me make this a better song.

-----------------

V1
She was just here a little while ago
When she packed all her stuff and drove away
As her car disappeared down the road
I knew it wasn’t gonna be a good day

Ch1
I’ll get out the garden hose
Turn it on strong, and aim it down low
I’ll just wash the wheels on my dirty old truck
And try to forget about her

V2
Then I’ll look through stuff in my dirty old truck
I should throw her trash out, too
It’ll take the better part of the day
But it’ll give me something else to do

Ch2
I’ll get out the garden hose
Turn it on strong, and aim it down low
I’ll just wash the wheels on my dirty old truck
And try to forget about her

Guitar Solo

Bridge
I just need to get her off my mind
There’s some distracting things I need to find
So I can start to leave her behind

Ch 3
I’ll get out the garden hose
Turn it on strong, and aim it down low
I’ll just wash the wheels on my dirty old truck
And try to forget about her
I’ll just wash the wheels on my dirty old truck
And try to forget about her

Love Is So Easy To Do

Love Is so Easy To Do - 2021

In all of our lives we are hoping to find
Love that is true but we are so blind
Never seem to understand true love is free
Because we place a price upon everything
We don't realize how love could be
So beautiful, love that we never knew
-
But, Love is so easy to do
It's as simple as counting, 1 - 2
Love is the Only thing
Greater Than Anything
We'll ever get to go thru
Love is so easy to do
-
If you want Love, keep looking up
You'll find it's always there
Then you'll have hope and you can look
Around for your neighbors and share
If you find faith, you'll see that it shapes
Love that was always true
-
Love is so easy to do
It's as simple as counting, 1 - 2
Love is the only thing
Greater than everything
We ever get to go thru
Love is so Easy to Do
-
Just like the Moon, the Stars and Sun
True Love shines for Everyone
Everywhere and every thing we do
Love is Patient, Love is Kind
K now that Love is never hard to find
It shines down thru me and you
Love is so easy to do
-
So don't stay apart
Don't Hide your Heart
Away from the ones you Love
Don't be a Fool whose always afraid
To show them what you're Dreaming of
You'll find it was always True
Love is so easy to do
-
La-la, La-la, La-la Love
La-la, La-la, La-la Love
La-la, La-la, La-la Love
Starting with me and you
Love is so easy to do
Starting with me and with you
Love is so easy to do
It all starts with Me and You
Love is so easy to do

Riding with the wind at sunrise
Chasing the new dawn
Darkness get behind me

This is the day I will find my peace
Turn my sword into a ploughshare
Darkness get behind me

I will stand in the warmth of the new sun
Burning away the sorrow and pain
Darkness get behind me

I will bend the light through my prism
New eyes, to see new ways
Darkness get behind me.
