Lyrics


1. HEY YOU

You've changed your tune any times
Since we've met
But I'll always recognize you
You are part of me
I feel you
Whether in Jamaica or in the Angel City
You are such a gift to me
Ooooh

Hey you
I gotta tell you my long time friend
I think of all those years you saw me through tears
And the good times that we spent

Hey you
You're my constant companion
You always let me explain just what I'm sayin'
And we've just begun
Uuuuh

I've got one wish for this music
To be an uplift and I need an uplift to deal
There are few songs all the people can sing along one song
Come along and sing it for real
Ooooh

Hey you
I gotta tell you my long time friend
I think of all those years you saw me through tears
And the good times that we spent

Hey you
You're my constant companion
You always let me explain just what I'm sayin'
And we've just begun
Uuuuh

As I wander around, town to town
Lost and found
When so many others come and go
(come and go)
The sweetness (sweetness)
Pulls me through

Hey you
I gotta tell you my long time friend
I think of all those years you saw me through tears
And the good times that we spent

Hey you
You're my constant companion
You always let me explain just what I'm sayin'
And we've just begun

Hey you
You never turned your back on me
When I gave up on myself
Hey you
You never turned your back on me
When I gave up on myself

Hey you
What would the world be like?
Without you around
Music
You're my constant companion
oooooh




2. IT'S ALRIGHT

Stay with me.
Here with me.
Right in this instance.
Not in the distance.
Head is off in it good time.
That's when things get out of line.
Taking in this moment.
You time is so well spent.

It's alright
Wherever you are right now.
It's alright
That's where you're suppose to be now.

Stay with me.
Here with me.
Right in this instance.
Not in the distance.

Standing at a crossroad
I was at a loss
Those temporary moments
Pleasures that are stolen.
Here in the present
You're time is so well spend.

A song, one song, could end a war
A song, one song, could end a war

It's alright
Wherever you are right now.
It's alright
That's where you're suppose to be now.




3. MIX IT UP

You take a little bit of me
And a whole lot of you
Add it up together
And here's what you're gonna do
You gotta mix it up quick
And it'll blow up on this spot
I got a tell ya' that the place is getting hot

Now mix it up
Uh just mix it up
What the sum of all the parts
When you add it up
Make much more than what you had
I tell you what
It's like mad
The baddest thing that you've ever had, uh

I was never too good at math anyway
But when you add it up it comes out more I have to say
A lot of people looking for what you and me have found
And now it seems no one's around, uh

A little bit of me
And a whole lot of you
Add it up together
And here's what you're gonna do
You gotta mix it up quick
And it'll blow up on this spot
I got a tell ya' that the place is getting hot

Now mix it up
Uh just mix it up
What the sum of all the parts
When you add it up
Make much more than what you had
I tell you what
It's like mad
The baddest thing that you've ever had

We're just two misfits
That no one else gets
Everyone else in the place
Became a silhouette
Soon as there was you
It all comes in view
On my guitar
I see those sparks
When we have those conversations in the dark

I was never too good at math anyway
But when you add it up it comes out more I have to say
A lot of people looking for what you and me have found
And now it seems no one's around

A little bit of me
And a whole lot of you
Add it up together
And here's what you're gonna do
You gotta mix it up quick
And it'll blow up on this spot
I got a tell ya' that the place is getting hot

Now mix it up
Uh just mix it up
What the sum of all the parts
When you add it up
Make much more than what you had
I tell you what
It's like mad
The baddest thing that you've ever had

We're just two misfits
That no one else gets
Everyone else in the place
Became a silhouette
Soon as there was you
It all comes in view
On my guitar
I see those sparks
When we have those conversations in the dark




4. GOLDEN SUNLIGHT

Hand over hand
I crawl back to land
There is no retreat
That option's far and away
I have to be brave
But I always did crave
The golden sunlight
It's been about me
But I'm setting that free
For golden sunlight, oh

There's a door open to walk through
All I want is just beyond
What if I could let my guard down
Into freedom, on and on

Somehow it came out
When I can't talk about
Someone to help me
As free as I wanna be
I cannot erase
But you helped me face
The songs and the flowers
At last perception
Of my self deception
The songs and the flowers, oh

There's a door open to walk through
All I want is just beyond
What if I could let my guard down
Into freedom, on and on

What if I could just let my guard down
What if I could live wide open, yeah
What if I could just let my guard down
And go beyond into the great unknown

Sweetheart, I've been bothered
A golden sun lit path
I've been after
Grass hills, wild flowers
Sharp road trails
For a daughter
I want to be her father
I want to hear her laughter
Under meteor showers
The dogs will howl at the midnight hour

There's a door open to walk through
All I want is just beyond
What if I could let my guard down
Into freedom, on and on

What if I could just let my guard down
What if I could live wide open, yeah
What if I could just let my guard down
And go beyond into the great unknown




5. INDIA INK

I write your name on my arm with India ink
Baby I told you once before it's not what you think
I drink it in with a sip
But I really want to chug
You know I take what I can get
Give me a dub, now

So good, so good
Come on now, I wish you would
Anytime I get together
Get to feeling like I could

I write your name on my arm with India ink
Baby I told you once before it's not what you think
I drink it in with a sip
But I really want to chug
You know I take what I can get
Give me a dub, now

So good, so good
Come on now, I wish you would
Anytime I get together
Get to feeling like I could

Woah are you with me
Woah are you with me
Woah is that the best you can give me
Woah are you with me

I write your name on my arm with India ink
Baby I told you once before it's not what you think
I drink it in with a sip
But I really want to chug
You know I take what I can get
Give me a dub, now

You're even cuter
When you get crossed
Just stamp on your foot
And try to be the boss

I write your name on my arm with India Ink
I'm hanging on every word cause the way that you think
Yes every misstep well it led me to you
I'll do what I got to do to see it through

If you see a shooting star
Celebrate with a kiss
Won't have to wait far
When no one will ever miss

Woah are you with me
Woah are you with me
Woah is that the best you can give me
Woah are you with me

I'd carve my name on my arm
But you'd be alarmed
That I did it
I admit it
A big swing and a miss
So I'll keep my distance
Back in it
In a minute

Woah are you with me
Woah are you with me
Woah is that the best you can give me
Woah are you with me

Woah are you with me (name on my arm with India ink)
Woah are you with me (told you once before it's not what you think)
Woah is that the best you can give me
Woah are you with me
(Name on my arm with India ink, baby I told you once before it's)




6. DAISY CUTTER

I tried to move with a cool hand
It didn't go as I planned
Im full of rookie maneuvers
And gestures meant to be grand

Ive pulled a bag of tricks one after the other
I asked if you heard of my band
So misguided the sincere approach never tried it once
You said to just drop the game flat
Why didn't I think of that

[Chorus:]
My daisy you make me go crazy
Forever amaze me
Now let's let the day go lazy
My daisy you know what im after
Your musical laughter
A more beautiful disaster

I cant believe what you create
When you let your heart detonate
You let your mind go with one blast in another
And what comes next I will await, hmmm
Tell me again the one about the time
We first got together and you blew my mind
I find my mind in the gutter
When I think of my daisy cutter

[Chorus]

Its four months now
Since you crashed into my life (to my life)
You leave a path of delightful destruction
Your quite the throng, my daisy

Hoos hoos

Just clap your hands
Get down to the beat
Just clap your hands
Just clap your hands to the beat

[Chorus]

My daisy, you know what im after
You make my heart beat so much faster
My daisy, you know you drive me crazy
You just blow me away, my daisy




7. TOO MUCH TOO FAST

Rifling through the pictures of you
I can finally tell
They develop well
The tale I see
It tells my favorite story
Of friction and glory

Breaking the cast
Repeating the past
It's not written
That's all just fiction
No, who says it's written in stone?

It's been a long time
Oh, such a long time
Finding my way all back out, woah
Somehow you stood by
Beyond when you should die
I'm amazed at how things have turned out

What is revealed?
What is concealed?
It makes all the difference
Say what you will
We unreeled that human web
Just to see how it feels?

Too much too fast
For the moment to last
I tumbled to you
While stumbling through
How do I get my head off of the tracks
Listening for a train, ah
Cause that's just no way to live
I got so much love to give
Much too fast, oh

Out of the blue
It all comes in view
You never win
If you don't go all in
The perfect hand
Can go just as you planned
I don't understand

Began right on track
Slipped through the cracks
We were two of a kind
Who seemed destined to find
We unreeled that human web
Just to see how it feels?

Too much too fast
For the moment to last
I tumbled to you
While stumbling through
How do I get my head off of the tracks
Listening for a train, ah
Cause that's just no way to live
I got so much love to give
Much too fast, oh

So much love to give
Too much too fast
So much love to give
Too much too fast
Got so much love to give
Too much too fast
So much love to give
Too much too fast




8. NEVER ENDING SUMMER

I tell you what I like
This moment of unity
When there's no distance
In between you and me
I got to stop
When it becomes us and them
Need an enemy for ego to win

These are the good ole days
I don't care what they have to say
These are the good ole days
All together now

So tell me can this all be real
Find it so bizarre
Can this all be real
Hold them fingers up
Finding to a dance to be a coincidence
I don't think you got to let go of common sense
Can this all be real
Right now

Summer
Never ending summer
That's our time
We do it all the time
From Tokyo Bay to the Little Five Points
Keep on blazing a trail
Keep on rocking the joints
Summer
Here we go

Hanging out with my friends
We're traveling
Out and about
Good times that we're having it's
Harmonic bliss when we all are synchronized
Something got to see with your eyes

These are the good ole days
I don't care what they have to say
These are the good ole days
All together now

So tell me can this all be real
Find it so bizarre
Can this all be real
Hold them fingers up
Finding to a dance to be a coincidence
I don't think you got to let go of common sense
Can this all be real
Right now

Summer
Never ending summer
That's our time
We do it all the time
From Tokyo Bay to the Little Five Points
Keep on blazing a trail
Keep on rocking the joints
Summer
Here we go

Summer
Never ending summer
That's our time
We do it all the time
From Tokyo Bay to the Little Five Points
Keep on blazing a trail
Keep on rocking the joints
Summer
Here we go

Summer
Never ending summer
That's our time
We do it all the time
Summer
Never ending summer
That's our time
Here we go




9. TWO DROPS IN THE OCEAN

Thinking of you
It all comes in view
I believe we came from the same cloud
Two drops in the ocean
Tell me again
The story of when we..
..we will be together one day..

We're two of a kind
Forever we've been combined
Though the current will pull us apart
Two drops in the ocean
You are part of me
The other side of the sea
And we will be together one day..

Hey hey
What can I say?
I swim your way
Though the tide pull us away
I ask you
What you gonna do?
Oceans apart
But I know no one else will do
Two drops in the ocean
Just go with the motion dear

We'll meet again
From two rivers that dealt on two shore
Two drops in the ocean

Fall into me
Dissolve in the sea
The boundaries between, they are nothing
But love we have, the only real thing..yeah

There is a stone wall
Around your heart
Nothin left now to do but to start
Chippin away
Day by day
Until we see it break apart
Hear me talkin 'bout
Let it be known, it can be done
Bit by bit and one by one
If the two of us try from both the two sides
Until we see the sun
Your phenomenal

Two drops in the ocean
Just go with the motion..

A lot of fish in the sea..
..not for me
You're somethin' of a different kind
The rest evaporate, but you stay in my mind

There is a stone wall
Around your heart
Nothin left now to do but to start
Chippin away
Day by day
Until we see it break apart
Hear me talkin 'bout
Let it be known, it can be done
Bit by bit and one by one
If the two of us try
From both the two sides
Until we see the sun
Your phenomenal

Hey hey
What can I say?
I swim your way
Though the tide pull us away
I ask you
What you gonna do?
Oceans apart
But I know no one else will do
Two drops in the ocean
Just go with the motion
Two drops in the ocean dear..




10. SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING

We are the wind and the sea
Sun reflected you to me
We are the moon and the stars
Darkness hiding mystical heart
We have just begun
The dreams, the nightmares of everyone
We are mysterious things
Eternal, perpetual, and ending
We are the yin and the yang
The ending, the middle, and the big bang
We are the zero and one
The desert, the voice, and the ocean

I've one conclusion
It's not illusion
But it's creativity
The supernatural thing that happens between you and me, yeah

Because it's magic
Something out of nothing
Magic
Something out of nothing
The paranormal became normal
Every time you're through the door
Don't care what they say
That's what I'll say

We are silver and gold
The eyes that see
The hands that hold
We are all you heard
A whisper to scream every word
You are everything
Eternal, perpetual, and ending

The sweet science of seeing the whole
We are creative
Everyone of us is how we live, yeah
We are positive
Everyone of us is how we live

It's not illusion
But it's creativity
The supernatural thing that happens between you and me, yeah

Something out of nothing
Don't care what they say

11. JACKPOT

Jackpot, uh split shot
I'm in line doing fine
This snapper I've got the bounty
Blessed with the amount, we
Never guess, the best is yet to come
Came to rock the fucking block
If you don't come new
Then you might get dropped
I think it's strange
The thing's the same, carry on
Season's deranged
Like the one we call will be gone

With the touch of my wand
You are my God, you're my guardian
I hit the jackpot, I'm the lucky one
My fortune endless, never coming undone, uh
Moving, I'm a nomad
Another girl's voice is the noises rad
My treasure is soul, aren't you glad
I get psychedelic with a pen and a pad

Rooming up in NO it's about that critical
Find it difficult to be so analytical
I'm filled with hope
The rope it won't hang you
Sit your ass down and come in rangoon
Right about now it's about that time
You know I crack the coconut and I twist up the lime
I've been on the road like a Seminole warrior
Passing up the tales like the one they wrote the story for

Woo
Everybody jump

What are the chances
The odds must be enhanced
It's a wild card that you threw
Of all the places to end up
It amazes me
After all we've been through

Jackpot
All the people say woah
Jackpot
Let me hear you say woah
Jackpot
Uh, what, woah
Give 'em what you got 'til you hit that spot
Woah

We hit the jackpot
The lotto, lucky dot
So the path that we tread
We pave the bars of gold
Now we got it
How we bought it
Sweating from stage to stage
A lot of it
And if we won the chance to dance
And do it all again
We wouldn't change a thing
There is no other end
The pinnacle we reached
We knew it was possible
How we got here
Overcoming obstacles

Right about now it's about that time
You know I crack the coconut and I twist up the lime
I've been on the road like a Seminole warrior
Passing up the tales like the one they wrote the story for
Reside West Coast from the Mid West
Take what you like and fuck all the rest, man
We only enter in one contest
That we made up ourselves
That's to be the 311'est

Woo
Everybody jump

What are the chances
The odds must be enhanced
It's a wild card that you threw
Of all the places to end up
It amazes me
After all we've been through

What are the chances
The odds must be enhanced
It's a wild card that you threw
Of all the places to end up
It amazes me
After all we've been through

Jackpot
All the people say woah
Jackpot
Let me hear you say woah
Jackpot
Uh, what, woah
Give 'em what you got 'til you hit that spot
Woah

Woo
To the death of dismay
Uh
Disc jock to the truth




12. MY HEART SINGS

4 A.M. this hotel room and I think of you
Not in anger, but in danger of calling you
My mind's a long, long way from it was dead
And now the good times just keep drifting back in, woah

Breathe it on out the end will come so freely
You'll figure it out the answer will come so clearly dear
Let it all go cause we can't know just what will be
Hard it is to set you free
It's so much easier that way

My heart sings when I think of you
That is what you do
A melody that will settle me
That is just the thought of you
My heart sings and it's time you knew, yeah
My heart sings

I'm not made of stone, I'm only flesh and bone
I'm half crazy and amazed that you are alone
Let's sit on the shore, watch the ocean breathe (sit and watch the ocean breathe)
It's getting dark but we both don't want to leave, woah

Breathe it on out the end will come so freely
You'll figure it out the answer will come so clearly dear
Let it all go cause we can't know just what will be
Hard it is to set you free
It's so much easier that way

My heart sings when I think of you
That is what you do
A melody that will settle me
That is just the thought of you
My heart sings and it's time you knew, yeah
My heart sings
My heart sings

Woah, woah, woah

My heart sings, my heart sings when I think of you, yeah
You wake up me when I'm lost at sea
Bring me back to you, yeah
We can know just what we'll be
What the future brings
But my heart sings
My heart sings
My heart sings




13. I LIKE THE WAY

I like the way you keep it from me, woah
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah
Just enough contact to make me come back
So many other girls just make my mind slack
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah

You're in front, I'm behind
Walking down a corridor
The way you're moving yourself
That makes me want you more

I like the way you keep it from me, yeah

Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I like the way you keep it from me, woah
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah
Just enough contact to make me come back
So many other girls just make my mind slack
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah

Tight jeans and the seams
Snake around your body type
The way they hug, the way they snug
The way they fit you right

I like the way you keep it from me, yeah

Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (it's just enough contact to make me come back)
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (so many other girls just make my mind slack)

Our rods and cones have a mind of their own
They keep on staring at you and want to get you alone
You got that sun dress mess yes that's the best
With the flower two piece underneath so fresh
I get a head full of bee's when you're in the vicinity
I cannot stop but thinking 'bout infinity
I get a thrill, you kill me with vernaculars
Speak your mind at fine in kind is spectacular

I asked her if she
Would come away with me
She said are you crazy
I said I must be
Now you know
Now we both know
I guess you're right we should just move it slow
I was hooked on a feeling
You were so right to put on the brakes
That's how I know you got what it takes, uh

I like the way you keep it from me, woah
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah
Just enough contact to make me come back
So many other girls just make my mind slack
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah

Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (it's just enough contact to make me come back)
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (so many other girls just make my mind slack)
Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (it's just enough contact to make me come back)
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (so many other girls just make my mind slack)




14. GET DOWN

I got this great idea about why I got in reverse
I was so out of control it just got worse
I hope you got more sense than I, side step the curse
I don't know which came first
In the spiral threatening my survival
It's come, time to get down

It's time to get down
Boots to the ground
Know we don't stop 'til they hear the bell sound
Keep your head up
Cause the truth just cut
No quick fix when I'm caught in a rut
What I got to do to get right size
Think I'm despised when I look through the eyes
Of another
Not mine to discover
What the next man think is none of my fucking business

And then I say what is this
Illusion I can't fix it
You name it, hey
The story stays the same
Any trouble you can name
Just goes straight into accepted
You name it, hey

It's time to get down
To the ground
So simple yet profound
In the now
Is why we're here
Inspiration
I've been waiting all my life
I'm set free, it's happened
I won't look back and think twice
It's how it's meant to be
Something's happened
A sudden slap in the right place
In my face, I thank you
You always came through for me
It's how it's meant to be

Gonna get down because I can't stay high
All of the time, cause I see the sign
So I re-align with an open mind
Adamant and circumvent
I get by every night and day
Get by with my comfort way
An Open space to an open way
I just unwind, I just unwind

And then I say what is this
Illusion I can't fix it
You name it, hey
The story stays the same
Any trouble you can name
Just goes straight into accepted
You name it, hey

It's time to get down
To the ground
So simple yet profound
In the now
Is why we're here

Inspiration
I've been waiting all my life
I'm set free, it's happened
I won't look back and think twice
It's how it's meant to be
Something's happened
A sudden slap in the right place
In my face, I thank you
You always came through for me
It's how it's meant to be
