Broken Rules

by Jeff Jones

I’ve got the rest of my days

To sit and wonder why Life’s just to fragile I guess
Gone in the blink of an eye
You think she’s a walk in the park
At first she seems so shy
Can’t keep my mind on my work
Maybe that’s what I like

Isaid that I had bad luck before
She said lightening won’t strike twice
You know-I’ve never broken rules She said I’ll show you just what to do

I’ve seen her floatin’ around
Raven hair that flies
She ain’t no walk in the park Oh,
those hazel eyes

She said you’ve got nothin’ to hide from me
I’d like to micro-manage you
She said I think you’re gonna be all right
Meet me after Sunday School

I’ve got the rest of my days
To sit and wonder why
Life’s just to fragile I guess
Gone in the wink of an eye
You think she’s a walk in the park
At first she seems so shy
Can’t keep my mind on my work Maybe that’s what I like

You know I’ve never broken rules
She said I’ll show you just what to do
She said you’ve got nothin’ to hide from me
I’ll see you after Sunday School

Fool

by Jeff Jones

Days, months, and years, just fly
But there’s a strange obsession
Every time you walk by And now you’re off to California
But that’s just one more cliché

You know I’m such a fool
There’s nothing I can do

If you hate to see me cry
Just turn your glance away- oh-oh baby
And if it sounds like my heart is breakin’ What more can I say?

You know I’m such a fool
There’s nothing I can do
It’s always been about you
It moved me to tears when I heard you say
You’ll have to let me go forever
Effective today
And if it sounds like my heart is breaking
What more can I say? Oh-oh baby

You know I’m such a fool
There’s not much I can do
It’s always been about you

I’ll always be your fool
Some twists of fate are cruel
It’s always been about you

I'll Be There

by Ken Greer & Jeff Jones

You Say
You Wanna Fly To The Moon Babe
You Say
No Time Is Too Soon Babe
When The Road You’re On
Is Getting Tired And Twisted
I Can Be The One You Turn To

(I’ll Be There)
When You Need It The Most
(I’ll Be There)
When You Give Up The Ghosts
That Haunt You
There When You Need
Anything At All
Anywhere, Anytime
All You Gotta Do Is Call Me
You Say
Oh You Wann Fly To The Edge
Of The World Babe
You Say
You Wanna Dive Into The Ocean
And Swim The Ocean Blue
When The Road You’re On
Is Getting Tired And Twisted
I Can Be The One You Turn To

(Chorus)

(I’ll Be There)
When You’re Pushin’
That Heavy Load
(I’ll Be There)
Wherever You Go (I’ll Follow)
(I’ll Be) There When You Need
Anything At All
Anywhere Any Time Girl

Land Of You

by Ken Greer & Jeff Jones

Gimme Something
Gimme Something I Can Hold On To
You Know What I Mean
Tell Me You Love Me Too
Am I Dreamin’ Of Something
Oh Can I Figure It Out
I’ll Go On And On And On
‘Til There Is No Doubt
I’m Livin’ In The Land Of You
(Give Me Your Heart And Soul
It Won’t Last Long)
Tell Me What’s A Man To Do
(Lay Me Down Beside You)
Livin’ In The Land Of You
Give Me Your Love
It Could Be So Sweet
I’m Livin’ In The Land Of You
(From My Spine And To My Feet)

I Keep It Cool
I Keep It Where I Don’t Go
I Keep A Diamond Light
Shine On, Shine On
With Your Arms Around Me
(Arms Around)
I Tell You To Coo Kukatchu
That’s All
Just Give Something
I Can Hold On To

(Chorus)

Living In The Land Of You
(Take Me Down Inside You)
What Am I Going Through
(Lay Me Down Beside You)
There’s Something I Gotta Do
(Put My Arms Around You) I’m Living In The Land Of You
(Something I Can Hold Onto)

I’m Living In The Land
(Give Me Your Heart And Soul,
It Can’t Be Wrong)
Living In The Land Of You (Feel Inside A Love So Strong)
What Am I Gonna Do
(Give Me Your Love)
And Life Would Be So Sweet
I’m Giving Myself To You
(Down My Spine And To My Feet)

Money

by Jeff Jones

I don’t know- I don’t know and I don’t care
Hummin’ low- candles flicker in the wind
Startin’ to find out- how much you mean to me
How can I throw it all away- so easily?

It’s all about money
Bye bye intellectuals
All about gold
What’s a poor boy to do?
Ya’ just get greedy
If that’s your final answer
Wo is you

(There’s) no use runnin’
(Cause) politics are not for me (no)
Your Mercedes-Benz and your Gucci-clad friends
They don’t know ‘bout me (they don’t know ‘bout me)

It’s all about money
Bye bye intellectuals
All about gold
What’s a poor boy to do?
Ya’ just get greedy
That’s not my final answer- no, no, no
It’s getting’ kinda hard to understand
And not get jaded
One of life’s little mysteries
I’ve contemplated all night long

Heavy load- that’s what’s eating up my time
How can I throw it all away so easily?

It’s all about money
Bye bye intellectuals
All about gold
What’s a poor boy to do?

Ya’ just get greedy
That’s not my final answer
It’s all about money
Bye bye intellectuals
All about gold
There’s not much left for you
It’s a low odds wager
The stakes already risen
A little too high
Just a little too high

Diamond Light

by Ken Greer

No Business Out On The Street
But The Church Bells Ring Out
They Don’t Come Down Here
Much Anymore Just The Fools In The Night
Jean, Jean, Genie’s Cool
All Done Up In The Diamond Light
All The Boys And They Say
They Say West Street’s Gonna Fight
In My Heart You’ll Always Be Here Anyway
Into My Arms
You’ll Run To Me, Run To Me, Baby
Diamond Light
Don’t Feel The Rain And Heartache
Of The Night
Diamond Light Wanna Hear Your Laughter
Under The Moonlight
Diamond Light
Give Me All Your Love
All The Love You’ve Got
l’ll Be Your King
I’ll Be Your King Of Fools
I’ll Be Your King Of Jewels

With The Reign Of The Cats
Now They Won’t Take You Back
They’ve Run Out
Of Al Capones Here

They Change Their Money To Gold
It Doesn’t Matter Anymore
What’s Left After The Rain
No Better Revelation
Now I’m Stuck Here On The Road
Breathe It In Inside You You Don’t Need A Savior
The Way Is Clear
Your Mind Is Open Your Heart Says Go

(Chorus)

Walkin’ By The River
It’s All An Illusion
Walk By The River

Give

by J.Boswell

It’s getting’ kinda hard to understand
And not get jaded
One of life’s little mysteries
I’ve contemplated all night long

Heavy load- that’s what’s eating up my time
How can I throw it all away so easily?

It’s all about money
Bye bye intellectuals
All about gold
What’s a poor boy to do?

Ya’ just get greedy
That’s not my final answer
It’s all about money
Bye bye intellectuals
All about gold
There’s not much left for you
It’s a low odds wager
The stakes already risen
A little too high
Just a little too high
Are You Safe
Under Blue Skies Of The Trinity
Self Embraced
By The Warm Arms Of Divinity
Seize The Day While You’re Still Alive
Or Waste Away
Slowly Slip Outside
The Want Of The Better
Adds Heat To My Heels

(Chorus)

In Recovery

by J.Boswell

No More Fatal Lines
I’m Just Doin’ Fine
Don’t Kick Me When I’m Down
Leave Me Lying On The Ground Like
Some Never Was Long
Forsaken Dream Gone
Without A Trace
Just The Ghosts That Haunt This Place

You’ve Got Nothing To Prove
And I’ve Got Nothing To Lose
Don’t Tell Me Whatever
Will Will Be
Because If You Ask Me
I’m Still In Recovery
If You Ask Me I’m Still In Recovery

Let It Run Down
Let It Run Down From The Drip Feed
Let It Run Down
All The Peace Of Mind That I Need

(Chorus)

Lonely

by Jeff Jones & N.Orenstein

Eyes Wide Open
It’s Seven A.M.
The Devil’s Tuggin My Coat Once Again
It’s Got To The Point
Where I Can’t Get No Sleep
The Devil Says I’m In Too Deep
I’m Not Sittin Here
Waiting On Your Call
‘Cause There’s No Pride
Before My Fall
No Explanation Can Satisfy
The Hunger Burning Deep Inside
The Lonely One
I’m The Lonely One
Oh Yeah

Thought I Knew You
What Did I Know
The One Who’s Left Is The Last To Know
It’s Back To The Point
Where I Can’t Get No Sleep
The Devil Says That
I’m In Too Deep
It’s Like Beatin’ My Head
Against The Wall
You Give The Push
And Then I Take The Fall
One Day Somebody
Will Come Around
Do You The Way
That You Have Done

(Chorus)

Positive

by Ken Greer

Slippin’ Out The Back Door
Cleanin’ Up The Windows
Never Mind The Lingo

Where The Wind Blows
Here On The Street
(Just) Movin’ My Feet
An’ A Man Come On The Radio
He Says
What You Really Need Is
Positive Thinking
Positive Thinking

A Beautiful Girl
Comin’ On To Me
(Her) Boyfriend Buddy Says
– She’s With Me
(I) Said Okay I Give Up
I Give In Today
I’m Dyin’ To Make A Change Anyway
So Here’s What I Did)
Ow, I Got In My Car
With An Old Guitar
And They Say Some Day
I’ll Be A Big Star
Well, The Phone Ain’t Ringin’
But I Keep On Singin’
These Lonely Songs
I Keep Diggin’ This
– Positive Thinking

Boy Shot Dead
Got A Hole In His Head
Man Come Around And All He Said
Take It From Me
You Don’t Wanna See
The Things I See It’s Hard To Be / Me

We’ve Got To Find A Better Way
I Said Okay I Give Up I Give In Today
I’m Dyin To Make A Change Anyway

First Degree

by Ken Greer, N.Orenstein & Jeff Jones

No Beggar On The Street
No King Of The World
(Could) Set The Wind In Motion
To The Soles Of My Feet
They Say It’s Quite Common
We All Wanna Go
It Seems A Little Funny
But I’d Really Like To Know About
Love/Love In The First Degree

No Judge/No Jury
No Defendant To The Stand The Verdict Is Given Here
Is Already Planned No Doctors/No Lawyer
No Psychology
Could Make Me Forget
The Shakin’ In My Knees (Of)

Love/Love In The First Degree
Love/Love In The First Degree

You Can See The Sparks
Fly At Her Window Tonite
The Colour Of Her Eyes
Like Midnight Blue
People Come And Go
From Love As They Please
But They Never Forget Love In The First Degree
Love/Love In The First Degree
(They Got) Love
Love In The First Degree

I’ve Never Seen
This Crazy Place Before
They Tell Me It’s Nice
In The Springtime
(An) Sonner Is Better
Than Never At All Sometimes You Wait
‘Til The Last Leaf Falls
Last Leaf Falls

Love/Love In The First Degree

Here Today

by Ken Greer & Jeff Jones

Runnin’ On Emotion
Tryin’ To Make A Play
Come Across The Ocean
And Off To L.A. (Here In My Head)

Save Me
(Come On/Come On/Come On)
Here Today I’m Gone Tomorrow
Come On And Save Me
Here Today Gone Tomorrow

They say I’m Not In Fashion
Got This Suit That Ties Me Down
I Don’t Need A Reason
I’m Comin’ Down

A Little Outta Sync
And I Don’t Think
Gonna Dye My Hair
A New Kinda Pink
And I – I’ll Be There
Smoke A Little Weed
And Plant My Seed
And That Money That I’ll Never See
But I’ll Be There

(Chorus)

In Through The Out Door

by Jeff Jones & R.Coburn

It’s Hard To Explain
So Difficult
You Won’t Listen
So Individual
I Try Not To Force The Issue Here
But Just Heed My Message
ingin’ It Loud And Clear
I Try To Avoid Any Confrontation
But I Must Resolve The Situation

Coming In Through The Out Door
Heeding No One’s Words
There’s A Voice That Guide’s You
No One’s Ever Heard
Coming In Through The Out Door
Thinkin’ Everything’s Fine
I Lost My Balance
Walkin’ That Fine Line
Life Can Strain You
Pull Your Soul In Two
But You Have To Endure It There’s Nothin’ You Can Do
I Try To Avoid
Any Complications
I Try To Control It
But I’m Losing My Patience

(Chorus)

I Try To Avoid Any Confrontations
I Try To Control It
But I’m Losing My Patience

Coming Through The Out Door
Heeding No One’s Words
There’s a Voice That Guide’s You
No One’s Ever Heard
Coming In Through The Out Door
Thinkin’ Everything’s Fine
But Just Look In My Eyes
And You’ll Be Mine All Mine
Mine All Mine

Magic Words

by Jeff Jones & N.Orenstein

I Walk Alone
Singing Dirges In The Park
Creatures Lurking In My Heart
You/Walk Thru The Rain
Softly Thru The Rain
Things Have Never Been So Strange
I/I Stand Alone
Chatting Tersely On The Phone
It’s The Lawyers Dontcha Know
There’s No Easy Way
There’s No Magic Words To Say
To Make The Stinging Go Away
You/You Stand Alone
Search For Something You Can Do
Change Your Sombre Tone To Blue
There’s No Time To Lose
When The Band Begins To Play
Blow Your Attitude Away/Away
All Your Life
Seems As Though It’s Blown Away/Away
All Your Life
Seems As Though It’s Blown Away
Now You Can’t Go Back
To Yesterday/Hey
There’s No Easy Way
There’s No Magic Words To Say
Make This Feeling Go Away
