Lyrics

Paper Wings (Stanwyck/Czitron)

 

When eyes meet and hearts collide

And you think that fate is on your side

When things are perfect and brand new

 

When you do it for the thrill of the chase

And you have to be in first place

And you think every dream has come true

 

Love’s an unpredictable thing

You fly next to the sun on paper wings

And you never know what that fire will bring

Love’s an unpredictable thing

 

Well one day all you want is more

And the next you’re shattered on the floor

Ain’t it funny how it all works out

 

Well you sell your soul and you tell your friends

And you never think that story will end

And you dive in head first without a doubt

 

Love’s an unpredictable thing

You fly next to the sun on paper wings

And you never know what that fire will bring

Love’s an unpredictable thing

 

  

It’s Alright (Stanwyck/Sinclair)

 

At the end of your day, do the blues come to stay?

Little lonely one, has it all gone wrong?

Are you holding on, holding on to nothing

 

Another night

In another time

 

A perfect scene, I don’t think so

What does it mean, to be alone?

When things get tough, don’t be surprised

I’ll always be right by your side

 

It’s alright

That’s life

It’s alright

 

Like a moth to the flame you always go the same way

Don’t you wanna know what we’ll never know?

Do you wanna keep holding on to nothing

 

Another night

In another time

 

A perfect scene, I don’t think so

What does it mean, to be alone?

When things get tough, don’t be surprised

I’ll always be right by your side

 

It’s alright

That’s life

It’s alright

 

Little daring I’ll be there

Till the light comes back to your eyes

 

A perfect scene, I don’t think so

What does it mean, to be alone?

When things get tough, don’t be surprised

I’ll always be right by your side

 

It’s alright

That’s life

It’s alright

 

  

Stevie Nicks Freedom (Stanwyck/Carlin/Sinclair)

 

April showers that Georgia sunshine

Slips into a hot Atlanta night

Blind Willy’s down with that sweet soul sound

The blues they just feel right

 

We’re all doin’ fine with that bottle of wine

That was smuggled inside her purse

Takin’ a sip with cherry red lips

You know it really ain’t such a curse

 

Oh she’s got that Stevie Nicks freedom

Makes the room spin round n’ round

She’s got a way to go her own way

We gotta’ burn, burn, burn some more of this town

 

So we head on down to the Clermont Lounge

To catch Blondie on the make

Ponce de’ Leon’s got it goin’ on

With them girls that shimmy and shake

 

Hot Atlanta nights

Georgia sunshine

Blind Willy blues

Wine that just tastes right

 

She’s got that Stevie Nicks freedom

Makes the room spin round n’ round

She’s got a way to go her own way

We gotta’ burn, burn, burn some more of this town

 

Wouldn’t you know them breakers blow

And we’re left drinkin’ in the dark

It’s all so surreal but it ain’t no big deal

You know Atlanta sure left its mark

 

April showers that Georgia sunshine

Slips into a hot Atlanta night

Blind Willy’s down with that sweet soul sound

The blues they just feel right

 

She’s got that Stevie Nicks freedom

Makes the room spin round n’ round

She’s got a way to go her own way

We gotta’ burn, burn, burn some more of this town

 

  

Ghost (Stanwyck/Sinclair)

 

I’m a ghost I’m not here

I don’t exist yet the memories persist

Why did I leave where did I go

I used to like to make my presence known

 

And when the cupboards bang

And twilight shadows tease

Will you still remember me?

Will you keep holding on to a ghost?

 

I’m alive I’m alive

A ghost I’m alive

 

I’m a ghost I’m not here

You think you see me and feel me near

And when I go and don’t come back

You have to accept this as fact

 

And when the cupboards bang

And twilight shadows tease

Will you still remember me?

Will you keep holding on to a ghost?

 

I’m alive I’m alive

A ghost I’m alive

 

I’m a ghost....

Let me out of your pain

 

  

Love or Hatred  (Stanwyck/Carlin/Sinclair)

 

What’s the truth that you believe?

With your own eyes what did you see?

Did you see the man trying to steal your light?

All those wrongs don’t make it right

 

Love

Hatred

Love

Hatred

 

The once friendly people that you meet

End up victims in the street

Together we were strong it all went left to wrong

Left to wrong left too wrong

 

Love

Hatred

Love

Hatred

 

Who told the lies that you hid behind?

Was it just a big waste of time?

Posters on a post, were they put there by a ghost?

Was it love? Was it hatred?

 

Love

Hatred

Love

Hatred

 

Look at all the people that it’s claimed all through the night

Was it love? Or was it hatred?

Was it love? Or was it hatred?

Was it love? Or was it hatred?

 

 

We’ve Got Our Rock n Roll  (Stanwyck/Sinclair)

 

The windows down in our pickup truck

Listen to the radio

The wind is blowing through our hair

It tosses it up to and fro

 

Where were we going? Does anyone know?

It don’t matter it’s just better than home

We can run we are free we can handle it

Cause now we got our rock n roll

 

You and me we’re chasing our dreams

Come on yah we gotta go

Mom and Dad are fighting again

It’s time to hit the open road

 

Turn up that Rock n Roll

We Got our Rock n Roll

Rock n Roll, Rock n Roll

 

Out in the field on a summer’s night

Doing a whole lot of nothing till dawn

Then we’ll go get something to eat

Now that the party’s done

 

We huddle up close in our booth

Laughing when we see the sun

They know our names smile and wave hear us coming

Cause they listen for our Rock n roll

 

You and me we’re chasing our dreams

Come on yah we gotta go

Mom and Dad are at it again

So I’m putting on my headphones

 

Turn up that Rock n Roll

We Got our Rock n Roll

Rock n Roll Gotta Go

 

You and me we’re chasing our dreams

Come on yah we gotta go

Mom and Dad are fighting again

It’s time to hit the open road

 

Turn up that Rock n Roll

We Got our Rock n Roll

Rock n Roll

 

 

Sharp Shock of Love  (Stanwyck/Rusinek)

 

Look at the sky he sweetly said

That morning when the clouds turned red

I saw stars give up their words

Howling soothing reassured

 

In between the then and now

Our quiet voices wonder how

Your song alive in that great forest

The darkest night to the dawn’s chorus

 

Listen...

 

Sharp shock of love

Wait for day

I had to turn my head away

Sharp shock of love

Wait for day

I had to turn my head away

Sharp shock, Sharp shock of love

 

Look at my mouth he softly said

That night when the moons light spread

I heard hopes and dreams not even shared

Falling climbing soul is bared

 

In between the light and dark 

As night time yields to morning spark

The song alive in that great forest

From restless sleep to the dawn’s chorus

 

Listen...

 

Sharp shock of love

Wait for day

I had to turn my head away

Sharp shock of love

Wait for day

I had to turn my head away

Sharp shock, Sharp shock of love

 

Bathed in his starlight

 

 

Hole In Your Story  (Stanwyck/Carlin/Sinclair)

 

She can tell by your face

You, you give it away

Boy you’re playing a game

Lost, bring it back home again

 

If tears get in the way

It’s never going to change

There’s nothing you can say

Found a hole in your story

 

If it’s only one mistake

A lonely heart might break

How much more can you take

Found a hole in your story

 

Time it doesn’t take sides

Run but you can’t hide

Save yourself from you

You’re unhappy with the truth

 

If tears get in the way

It’s never going to change

There’s nothing you can say

Found a hole in your story

 

If it’s only one mistake

A lonely heart might break

How much more can you take

Found a hole in your story

 

 

(You Make Me Wanna Be A) Sinner  (Stanwyck/Czitron)

 

I’m just a preacher’s daughter in this farm town

But I know who you are and I’ve seen you around

Your deep dark eyes hold a mystery

And I wanna know what it’s like to be free

 

Pull up on your motorbike

Smile full of mischief wanna know what it’s like

To have whirlwind days and black leather nights

Be so wrong yet feel so right

 

Your intoxicating kiss it pulls me in

Though I tried to be good the devil’s gonna win

Got ahold of me in this game you’re the winner

You make me wanna be a sinner

You make me wanna be a sinner

 

Your slicked back hair and your Wrangler jeans

Our eyes meet and I know what it means

You say the word we're out running wild

This other side of me I’m my Fathers child

 

You pull up on your motorbike

Smile full of mischief wanna know what it’s like

To have whirlwind days and black leather nights

Be so wrong yet feel so right

 

Your intoxicating kiss it pulls me in

Though I tried to be good the devil’s gonna win

Got ahold of me in this game you’re the winner

You make me wanna be a sinner

You make me wanna be a sinner

 

 

You Know I’ll Wait  (Stanwyck/Rusinek/Sinclair)

 

Don’t give me none of yourt old time preachin'

If there’s a God She don’t need reachin'

She’s busy terraforming other rocks

Leaving them to tend their flocks

 

I don’t need God to fly me straight

Don’t need to kneel to open pearly gates

If it takes time you know I’ll wait

You know I’ll wait

 

Don’t give me any of your controversy

 If there’s a truth I’ll be at its mercy

When we get to turn it all around

Will we enjoy what we’ve found?

 

I don’t need God to fly me straight

Don’t need to kneel to open pearly gates

If it takes time you know I’ll wait

You know I’ll wait

 

Just give me some of your understanding

And I’ll meet you where and when you’re landing

You can call me when you’re in doubt

With love and music we’ll work it out

 

I don’t need God to fly me straight

Don’t need to kneel to open pearly gates

If it takes time you know I’ll wait

You know I’ll wait

 

I don’t need God to fly me straight

Don’t need to kneel to open pearly gates

If it takes time you know I’ll wait

You know I’ll wait

 

 

Blue Sky High  (Stanwyck/Carlin/Sinclair)

 

Right now is the time of our lives

Not fade and we’re starting to shine

I can see that look in your eyes

Yah baby we’ll be just fine

 

Not waiting we’re starting to fly

I know you know what it feels like

It’s a new time look around there’s nothing you need

Look inside you’re feeling that...

 

Blue sky high running through our minds

On a blue sky high being you and I

Not coming down

 

Right now it’s everything you see

It’s like you and it’s like me

It comes and so it goes

That’s the way here that it flows

 

But there’s always another side

And I’m telling you it’s a new ride

Looking through our eyes

A time to run a time to go a time to be ya’ know

 

It’s a Blue sky high running through our minds

On a blue sky high being you and I

Not coming down

 

We’re already there, it’s something we share

 It’s a Blue sky high running through our minds

On a blue sky high being you and I

On a Blue....

 

Not Coming down

 

 

Crazy Town  (Stanwyck/Carlin)

That dirt it don’t deliver

It don’t get me what I want

n’ all those lies are open scars

That surround my soul

And I’m just walkin’ on down this crazy town

 

It’s all Southern Comfort n’ Yankee charm

Those lords of liquor can’t do more harm

And all bad thoughts and worse intentions

They keep me up

And I’m just walkin’ on down this crazy town

 

Counting tiles on the floor

I wasn’t gonna’ do that any more

But I got fifty down twenty seven in store

I hope to make it

And I’m still walkin’ on down this crazy town

 

Those glory days I remember some

But the colors fade one by one

And all that dirt that’s piled so high

Why did I make it

I keep walkin’ on down this crazy town

 

All that dirt it didn’t deliver

It never got me what I want

n’ all those lies are open scars

That surround my soul

And I’m just walkin’ on down this crazy town

 

Standing On The Rooftop  (Stanwyck/Sinclair)

 

Your eyes caught me with a sideways glance

Is it too early to take that chance?

Tonight, or should I let it slide for now

But if this feeling stays I know we’ll find our way somehow

 

Standing on the rooftop

You say that you love me

There’s no holding back now

My heart is beating so free

I’ve been waiting such a long time

For you to just tell me...

 

Standing on the rooftop

Say that you love me

 

Your smile shows me what I want to see

This feeling like sweet harmony

Tonight, it’s what I want to hear

It’s getting closer when you whisper in my ear

 

Standing on the rooftop

You say that you love me

There’s no holding back now

My heart is beating so free

I’ve been waiting such a long time

For you to just tell me...

 

Standing on the rooftop

Say that you love me

 

Can’t figure it out

What is it you see?

How could it be wrong if it’s you and me?

 

Standing on the rooftop

You say that you love me

There’s no holding back now

My heart is beating so free

I’ve been waiting such a long time

For you to just tell me...

 

Standing on the rooftop

Say that you love me
