Lyrics

If you could remember

When you were young

Living was so easy in the morning sun

You grow a little older when the day is done

But you still got a Lifetime To Live

 

Yesterdays a memory

That’s lost in the fog

Of broken dreams you never had a chance to live

 

Sometimes today is worse then that

When you have to face the facts

You learned to take before you learned to give

 

Now your bills are overdue

And pain is what you use to pay

The only thing you can decide

Is whether to laugh or whether to cry

When you wake up to your insanity

 

But there’s a way

To be free

There’s a way

To be free

 

If you could remember

When you were young

Living was so easy in the morning sun

You grow a little older when the day is done

But you still got a Lifetime To Live

Story

This song was inspired in 1974 from watching large RV's come into a camp site when I was living in my van and tent house with my wife and two small kids (3 and 6) and working as a bus boy. It was about envy, jealousy and acceptance.

Lyrics

On my way to work this morning

A familiar scene arrived

The speed limit sign said 50

And The traffic is moving 5

It seems like nothing’ I do is right

Getting’ tough just to stay alive

 

Then I stop myself from thinking

These thoughts don’t do me no good

Got to take things as they are

Not the way they should

Any way I start my day

My time is simple spent

Nobody gets a free ride

Every body pays the rent

 

I wish I had the power

I would straighten out the world

At the top of the agenda

Every guy would have his girl

And every mother would haver her son

And every father a friend

 

Then I stop myself from thinking

These thoughts don’t do me no good

Got to take things as they are

Not the way they should

Any way I start my day

My time is simple spent

Nobody gets a free ride

Every body pays the rent

 

I woke up early this morning

Just to watch the day go by

People do the strangest things

But then again, so do I

If I find myself a wondering

Is his life better than mine

 

Then I stop myself from thinking

These thoughts don’t do me no good

Got to take things as they are

Not the way they should

Any way I start my day

My time is simple spent

Nobody gets a free ride

Every body pays the rent

Story

This was a great song about a night of bliss that never happened. I wrote the song on my way to the date - and she didn't show up. I found out 20 years later why. I still got a great song out of the experience that lasted a lot longer than the actual experience would have -

Lyrics

You’ve got that shit eatin’ grin

Cause you know what you just did

You know you nearly blew my mind

 

You knew just where to begin

You’re the mistress of sin

I’m gonna love lovin’ you

Every Single Time

 

Every Single Time you touch me

My body gets a chill

From the hot anticipation

I’m gonna get a thrill

Every Single Time you kiss me\It’s poetry in rhyme

You’re the sweetheart of my senses

My sexy valentine

 

You play the game with feeling

You got style, you’ve got class

Just like a gorgeous statue

A perfect piece of ass

 

There’s 50 ways of loving you

And 50 more we’ll find

I’m gonna love lovin you

Every Single Time

 

Every Single Time you touch me

My body gets a chill

From the hot anticipation

I’m gonna get a thrill

Every Single Time you kiss me\It’s poetry in rhyme

You’re the sweetheart of my senses

My sexy valentine

 

Here’s no braggin’ just a fact

I’ve had more than my share

I never had a night like this

There’s no one could compare

You’re every dream I’ve ever dreamed

And some I didn’t dare

I’m gonna love lovin’ you

Every Single Everywhere

 

Every Single Time you touch me

My body gets a chill

From the hot anticipation

I’m gonna get a thrill

Every Single Time you kiss me\It’s poetry in rhyme

You’re the sweetheart of my senses

My sexy valentine

Story

I wrote this for a couple celebrating their anniversary at a piano bar in Los Angelas. They were just having so much fun - and it was like that every night - they were regulars - had their own bar stools - and were stars in their own right.

Lyrics

He baked her a cake for their anniversary

She shyly admitted “he’s a better cook than me”

He flirts with the girls but he’s really not free

They’re having a good time it’s easy to see

 

And the years will come

And the years will go

Patti and Willy will always know

They’ve got each other till death do them part

When they say ‘I Love You’

It comes from their heart

 

Now 43 years is a very long time

But she’s bigger than him and that keeps him in line

The grass is no greener than his valentine

Love is that feeling you’re two of a kind

 

And the years will come

And the years will go

Patti and Willy will always know

They’ve got each other till death do them part

When they say ‘I Love You’

It comes from their heart

Story

I wrote this for a woman who I thought was just beautiful - not in a flashy way - just exuded loveliness - and she was always unhappy. I never why so I made up a story.

Lyrics

Moonlight and candlelight

Show him the way

He’s coming to see her

After so long away

 

With eyes ever open

She’s waiting at home

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

 

She knew that he’d be there

It’s something she learned

It just a little longer

For him to return

 

Now she is smiling

Her dreams are fulfilled

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

 

Moonlight and laughter were always her crown

She played for the theater, she played for the bow

But inside her soul, was a pain that grew old

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

 

Flowers and fragrance, the smells from above

Doldrums and daydreams weave spells out of love

She never did marry, she died all alone

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore

Sarah Doesn’t Cry Anymore
