Lyrics from the single release More Friends In Heaven (Than In Hell)

 

MORE FRIENDS IN HEAVEN (THAN IN HELL)

I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven since I learned my lesson / Now I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I made a living robbing banks I started to give thanks / Now I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / You know this jail cell is getting pretty old / You know this jail cell is just so plain and cold / I'm surrounded by the Devil so I play Christian heavy metal / Now I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / If I could do a do over I would / I'd trade my gun in for the Lord's Book / Bullets for a Bible I'd start my own revival / But I'll settle for a jail cell instead / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven since I received a blessing / Now I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / I've got more friends in Heaven with my newly dead reverend / Now I've got more friends in Heaven than in Hell / Hell yeah thank God

 

Lyrics from the album Time and Colors

 

TIME AND COLORS

I think of you / Always with me / I still can't believe last fall you decided to leave / I should have known / That you felt rushed / Next to your tear stained note you left a canvas and a brush / Like an artist / With a clean sheet / Time and colors / Will set you free / A new day's born / And another one is torn / Just like a paper pad you threw away the page you had / What did I do / What did I say / Did a more patient man come and take you away? / Like an artist / With a white canvas sheet / Time and colors / Will set you free / You can create what you want to see / You can be what you want to be / Unless the right one's with you to share in what you love / You'll be living inside an empty frame / Like an artist with a clean sheet / Time and colors / Set you free / The grass is greener until you miss the page you had / It makes me wonder about the life we could have back / And there's still time to paint our Mona Lisa / But first I've got this thing you need to see / Like an artist / I took your white canvas sheet / I made a painting / Of you and me / So come on home now / To the man you set free / Your time and colors / Are all I'll ever need

 

LIFE IN A BAG

I saw a man with his whole life in a bag / Down at the train station he made his way / Who is he where's he from and where is he going / Maybe to nowhere cause that's where he's from / Slowly stepping to the beat of his drum / Thinking of myself and how I compare with him / I am feeling lost / He knows where he's going / Mr. homeless man he's on to something / Small sense of urgency and a big sense of pride / How many men can say that all their possessions? / Fit in a bag with no loose ends / With no reminders of their past sins / All life's clutter and the senseless emotion / Money greed and judging things just don't bring us closer / Sometimes it feels I'm going through the motions / Chasing shiny things and burning through time / The simple life it has its advantages / Something that I strive for when I lose my way / Thank you homeless man for the lesson today / That Mr. Homeless man he's on to something / That most of us take a lifetime to find / So next time I'm down at the station / When the crowds are rushing and the mood is uptight / I'll be walking at the pace of his stride / Thinking of myself and what I'll do differently / Wonder if he knows that he's blessed with simplicity / Mr. Homeless man you taught me something / More important than being first in line / It's about how you fit your life in a bag

 

16 OTHER WAYS

Sometimes I wonder if the feeling's gone / Since you moved away last summer and you dyed your hair blond / You say all the right words when we're talking on the phone / But what I really want to know when I get you alone / If you love me then hug me / Say you miss me then kiss me / Don't tease me if you need me / Just squeeze me when you see me / Cause there's 16 other ways to spend my time / I got 16 other ways to spend my time / I could mow the lawn / I could feed the dog / I could take a walk / I could write a song / I could wash my car then drive it real far / I could swim in the lake and catch a rattlesnake / I could read a book / I could learn how to cook / Take a 2 week cruise / Drink plenty of booze / I can dance till midnight / Bask in the moonlight / Hang with the boys and make some rock and roll noise / I got 16 other ways to spend my time / If I'm the one for you then give me a sign / Give me a sign that’s right / Give me a clue I'm really into you / But this friendship thing is like auditioning / I want to hold your hand / I want to take a stand / But I hope you're not insulted and you understand / I got 16 other ways to spend my time / If I'm the one for you and your love is true then give me a sign / Give me a sign / And I'll make you mine / So if you love me then hug me / Say you miss me then kiss me / Don’t tease me if you need me / Just squeeze me when you see me / Cause there's 16 other ways to spend my time / The clock ain't ticking backwards / So give me a sign / I got 16 other ways to spend my time / And I'd love to spend it all with you till the end of time / And make you mine / Just give me a sign / Just give me a sign

 

CANDLES HOPE AND FAITH (STUDIO)

She lived in a world with love and pain / With things that she’d rather not explain / Like losing her innocence so young / Becoming a teen age mom / She raised a boy all by herself / She sent him away to go find his self / She said take the world with all your flare / Remember the words that we shared / Candles hope and faith / Will dry the tears off of your face in your darkest days / Candles hope and faith / Will make the world a better place in your memories / He calls it the information age / But sometimes he feels like he lives in a cage / She e-mails from an internet apart / With pictures of broken hearts / Candles hope and faith / Can put a smile back on your face when the clouds all clear / Candles hope and faith / Do what words can never say in a world away / He wished upon a shooting star / That she won’t ever forget about the angels by her side / Every day a new dream is born / And with it his new doors will open with time / She lived in a place where people need / A glimmer of light and dignity / She was laid to rest doing what she loved / Caring for children of God / Candles hope and faith / Will make the world a better place in your memories / Candles hope and faith / Can bring the tears of joy to your face in your living days / Candles hope and faith / Do what words can never say in a world away / Candles hope and faith / Can turn your world into a place with harmony

Lyrics from the album Graveyard of Dreams

 

DON’T LET CHANCES PASS YOU BY

I look at the world between the headlines / And that's where I find truth / Teaching a child to save an insect / And that's when I met you / American Girl store in the city / Where millions of dreams come true / A beggar was asking for a dollar / And you go gave him 2 / If all of the world could be so giving / Then maybe we'd all find truth / Sunshine's pouring from the sky / Yellow taxis passing by / What do you say let's go for a ride / Don't let chances pass you by / How do you make it in the city / A pretty girl like you / Where everyone judges by the cover / Not what's inside of you / If all of the world could be so simple / Then maybe we'd all find truth / I thank you for living in the moment / And letting me fall for you / Sunshine's pouring from the sky / The yellow taxis passing by / What do you say let's go for a ride / Don't let chances pass you by / The homeless man he's smiling wide / His dusty dreams and bloodshot eyes / Today you made a grown man cry / You don't let chances pass you by / Sunshine's pouring from the sky / Yellow taxis passing by / What do you say let's go for a ride / Don't let chances pass you by / Don't let chances pass you by / Don't let chances pass you by

 

KATRINA

Katrina / You should have seen her / She took my breath away / She took my heart away / And then she’s gone / And then she’s gone / Gone / Gone / Just Gone / Don’t come back again / Oh Katrina / She couldn’t be meaner / She took my home away / She took my place to pray / And now she’s gone / Just like that she’s gone / Just like that she’s Gone / Gone / Just Gone / Don’t come back again (and were here to stay) / Don’t come back again (Cause we’re here to stay) / No one in authority could see the writing on the wall / No one in the vicinity thought the levy could ever fault / The poor souls in the Parishes the local heroes of the day / The worst brings out the best in man  / That’s essence of the southern way / Oh Katrina / For those who seen her / The prayers that come our way / And the spirits lost that day / Will rise again / We will rise again / We will rise again

 

GRAVEYARD OF DREAMS

Towering fine above the city you watch the dreamers dream / They come in every shape and size you recall their scars with pride / As they try to be James Dean / Graveyard of Dreams Graveyard of Dreams / All along the boulevard / Graveyard of Dreams / Oh Sunset Boulevard Palm Trees you’ve witnessed history / You were born-in nineteen thirty one stars have come and gone / But you’re still here to tell their stories / Graveyard of Dreams Graveyard of Dreams / All along the boulevard / Graveyard of Dreams / If you could speak to me what’s the one thing you would share? / With a novice starting out beneath the trees / I’m not one for crying and I’m not afraid of dying / Speak speak speak to me / I hear your voice I see you point your arms like magic wands / You speak of ghosts who made their lives living to dream to Live / Save me a place on that Sunset farm / Graveyard of Dreams Graveyard of Dreams / All along the boulevard / Graveyard of Dreams / It’s time to make some memories for the Graveyard of Dreams / When I die come and see me in the Graveyard of Dreams  / In the Graveyard of Dreams

 

LITTLE GIRLS

I’ve got this little little girl her name is Julia / I’ve got this other little girl her name is Grace / I’ve got these little little girls each has a pretty face / I’ve got these crazy little girls they love to wreck the place / They like to run around the house and play with all their toys / They break so many things that you might even think they’re boys  / They’re smarter than they look they’re just like rug rats very coy / No matter how spoiled they get they will always be my little bundles of joy / I’ve got these little little girls they like to watch TV / I’ve got these little little girls they like to go out to eat / I’ve got these little little girls they love to eat grilled cheese / The smaller little little girl she loves to eat her peas / When they go to sleep at night they dream that they can fly / They don’t have wings but they can see down from the sky / The things that happen in the world they have lots of questions why / I just tell them how lucky they are to have each other and that will keep them fine / They run around the park and race to feed the ducks / And even though they’re girls they like to watch for yellow trucks / They fight to count the beetle cars as if it was for good luck / They eat like horses but somehow they both still have very skinny butts / I’ve got these little little girls they love to make a mess / I’ve got these little little girls they love to wear a dress / I’ve got these little little girls they never seem to rest / I’ve got these little little girls and they’re the very best

 

CANDLES HOPE & FAITH (SOLO)

She lived in a world with love and pain / With things she’d would rather not explain / She lost her innocence so young / Becoming a teen age mom / She raised a boy all by herself / She sent him away to go find his self / She said take the world with all your flare / Remember the words we shared / Candles hope and faith / Will dry the tears off of your face in your darkest days / Candles hope and faith / Will make the world a better place in your memories / He calls it the information age / But sometimes he feels like he lives in a cage / She e-mails from an internet apart / With pictures of broken hearts / Candles hope and faith / Will dry the tears off of your face in the darkest days / Candles hope and faith / Can make the world a better place in your memories / Candles hope and faith / Can put a smile back on your face when the clouds all clear / Candles hope and faith / Do what words can never say in a world away / She wished upon a shooting star and she won’t ever forget about the angels by her side / Every day a new dream is born and with it his new doors will open with time / She lived in a place where people need / A glimmer of light and dignity / She was laid to rest doing what she loved / Caring for children of God / Candles hope and faith / Will make the world a better place in your memories / Candles hope and faith / Can bring the tears of joy to your face in your living days / Candles hope and faith / Do what words can never say in a world away / Candles hope and faith / Can turn your world into a place with harmony 

 

TO THE RESCUE

Things are cloudy I can't see / The air is thin and I can't breathe / It feels like the whole world is coming down on me / I see a light what could it be / I see a hand reach out for me / I hear a voice from the heavens calling down on me / Hold my hand and don't let go until we fall into the rainbow / And you'll never see this wretched place again / And the tears you’re crying will soon be washed away / Out of Love / When and where my life began and / How and why it will end and / Is it not or is it here and now today? / Things I still need to do and say and / Children I’m supposed to make and / Did I tell my loved ones that I love them today? /  Hold my hand and don't let go until we fall into the rainbow / And you'll never see those evil ways again / And together we will silence all the pain / Don't know your name / But I'm glad you came / To the rescue  Out of love / Through the smoke and flames / You still came / To rescue me  with dignity / Out of love / A life of possibilities / A world with vulnerabilities / It's good to know that we are not alone / I'll tell you what you mean to me / A life is gone so easily / Does it matter who the hell we portend to be / Just hold my hand and don't let go until we fall into the rainbow / And the winds of fate will carry us away / I don't know your name / But I'm glad you came / To the rescue oh no / Don't know your name / But I'm glad you came / To fly with me with dignity / Out of love
