...Verse 1...
I threw you a life line.....
You threw it right back.....
I thought we were okay and fine.....
Till our love went cold and black.....

...Verse 2...
I tried to save you.....
But, you hurt me this time.....
Now I need saving too.....
From this broken heart of mine.....

...Verse 3...
You put her before me.....
And, I never lost my way.....
I always knew where home was.....
But, three’s too many.....
On any...given...day.....

...Verse 4...
Still, I don’t want to lose you.....
I know everyone makes a mistake.....
I think you feel it to.....
Can you feel my heartbreak.....

...Verse 5...
So, I threw you a life line.....
You threw it back at me.....
I thought we were okay and fine.....
Then, I found out that we...were...three.....

...Verse 6...
I tried saving you.....
But, you hurt me this time.....
Now, I need saving too.....
From this heartache of mine.....

...Verse 7...
Well, you put her before me.....
Still, I never lost my way.....
I always knew where home was.....
But, three’s too many.....
On any...given...day.....

...Verse 8...
Still, I don’t want to lose you.....
I know everyone makes a mistake.....
Can you you feel it to.....
Can you feel this heartache.....

I Threw You A Lifeline

You see things your way.....
And, I see them mine.....
You always found away to push me.....
Till, you’ve crossed that loving line.....

Still, you complain.....
‘Bout this dying flame.....
‘Cause, this love has gone and died.....
There’s no point going any further.....
If we can’t see eye 2 eye.....

No, we ain’t getting any closer.....
On this Roller Coaster.....
So, I’m getting off this Roller Coaster ride.....
I’ll have put in some distance.....
’Cause, we can’t see eye 2 eye.....

You mean well.....
Still, you put me thru hell.....
Now, my eyes are open wide.....
We’re not getting any closer.....
If we can’t see eye to eye.....
No, we can’t see eye to eye.....

“Eye 2 Eye”

My words are jumbled.....
A little mumbled.....
But, I know what I want to say.....
I’ve lived thru the years.....
Conquered many fears.....
Still, I’m getting a little older every day.....

Yet, I find myself lost.....
With my hair a little tossed.....
And, my neighbors all appear the same.....
I’m just a little older.....
And, a lot more colder.....
I swear everyone here is insane.....

I know I’m not who I used to be.....
And, most will agree.....
Still, I try to keep living each day.....
But, where else am I to go.....
Where people move too slow.....
And, everyone here is bald or grey.....

I’m not getting any better.....
Can’t live without my sweater.....
And, my best friend lives in a wheelchair.....
We’ll play some fun games.....
Tho, we forget each other’s names.....
Sometimes, I’m playing games in just my underwear.....

My life has been a ride.....
I took it in full stride.....
And, soon it will come to an abrupt end.....
Still I’m not ready to give up.....
If I can lift my coffee cup.....
And, play a game of Checkers with my best friend.....

Yesterday, When I Was Young

You give me reason to believe.....
Everything I do, I can achieve.....
And what a relief.....
From my head down to my feet.....
So, I’ll keep you around for a awhile.....
You give me a reason to Smile.....

***Chorus:
How could it be better than this.....
I’m tingling down to my fingertips.....
When you kiss me with your tender lips.....
You’re the queen of the denial.....
You give me a reason to smile.....

Feels like I’m more than one of the guys.....
When I’m dazzled with your hazel eyes.....
I’m so hypnotized.....
It’s obvious, I know I can’t hide.....
You make me feel I’m alive.....

***Chorus:
How could it be better than this.....
I’m tingling down to my fingertips.....
When you kiss me with your tender lips.....
You’re the queen of the denial.....
You give me a reason to smile.....

One day I’ll ask you to marry me.....
As we exchange gifts from under the tree.....
I’ll imagine you walking down the aisle.....
You’re so beautiful, and in style.....
You give me a reason to Smile.....

***Chorus:
How could it be better than this.....
I’m tingling down to my fingertips.....
When you kiss me with your tender lips.....
You’re the queen of the denial.....
You give me a reason to smile.....
You give me a reason to smile.....
You give me a reason to smile.....

“Reason To Smile”

She stays up all nite.....
Just to view the Moonlite.....
She'll wish upon a shooting star.....
And, sing when I strum my guitar.....
She's my kinda crazy to me.....

I've seen her dancing in the wind.....
Fillet a fish and remove the skin.....
She'll go out of her way to help a friend.....
Be herself and never pretend.....
She's my lady, she's my kinda crazy to me.....

She'll saddle her horse when we go for a ride.....
She'll sing karaoke, even if it's suicide.....
She'll sip wine till things get a little hazy.....
Yeah, she's my kinda girl.....
She's my kinda crazy to me.....

When I awake in the morning from her tickling my feet.....
She'll tug on the blankets, and pull off the sheets.....
Still, I'll just lay there all tired and lazy.....
Yeah, she's all up in my world.....
She's my kinda crazy to me.....

So sweet and seductive, a true romantic charmer.....
She's soft and gentle, and wears no shield or armor.....
She's my kinda woman, so spiritually free.....
She's my everything in this world, my everything to me.....

How simple she views this ole' world.....
Just a care free spirit, and a happy girl.....
She carries herself with such dignity and grace.....
Still, she could wear leather, or wearing lace.....

I owe her my everything because, she makes me complete.....
And, our love is so strong, as solid as concrete.....
Sometimes at night.....I find myself watching her sleep.....
Yeah, she's my everything, she’s my kinda crazy to me.....

She'll stay up all nite.....
Just to view the Moonlite.....
And, when I awake in the morning from her tickling my feet.....
She'll tug on the blankets and pull off the sheets.....
Yeah, she's my everything in this world.....
She's my kinda crazy to me.....
My kinda crazy to me.....

“She’s My Kinda Crazy”

She swooped into my life......
And quickly stole my heart......
She then made me a promise.....
That we would never part.....
And since then......
She's become the apple of my eye.....
I'll watch her turn......from a moth to a butterfly.......

What a pleasure it has been to witness her wings unfold.......
Our story is the most beautiful.....
That could have ever been told.....
The love we shared.....
Is like the fireworks in July......
I watched her turn......
From a moth to a butterfly......

When she welcomes me each day at our front door......
I am reminded of the love she gave......
So many times before......
And, each and every morning before I say my goodbye......
I'll watch her turn......
From a moth to a butterfly......

How beautiful it was when we made love under the moon......
As I recall her molting from her wingless cocoon......
Then, she would stretch her wings......
And soar higher in the sky......
I watched her turn......
From a moth to a butterfly......

If I let her go so that she may be free.....
She'll always find her way home......
And come back to me......
The last thing I want to witness before I lay down to die......
Is....I want to watch her turn......
From a moth to a butterfly......
From a moth to a butterfly.......

“From A Moth To A Butterfly”

When I’m feeling down......
I want to Runaway......
Runaway, and not be found......
Run so far, so very far away......
Maybe, I’ll come back one day......
For now, I need to run......
I’m gonna Runaway, Runaway......
Run, run, Runaway......

Cut me loose, so I may go......
You held me down......
So far below......
I’ll be where a Rivers end flows......
And, Runaway where no one goes......
Run, run, Runaway......

I want to run......
Where the tall grass is green......
Where I can hide......
And not be seen......
Run to a secret hideaway......
Gonna run, run, Runaway......
Run, run, Runaway......

I have to go so......
Don’t cling to me......
If I’m in your heart......
Please set me free......
If I get lost......
I’ll find my way......
Maybe, I’ll come back another day......
For now, I need to getaway......
Run, run, Runaway......

When I’m feeling down......
I want to Runaway......
Runaway, where I can’t be found......
Run so far, so very far away......
Maybe, I’ll come back another day......
I’m gonna run, run, Runaway......
Run, run, Runaway......
Run, run, Runaway......

“Runaway”

I see a homeless man.....curled up on the sidewalk, slowly closing his eyes......
Dreaming of his new home, and waking up to a warm sunrise......
I see a homeless man.....with all his belongings in a grocery cart.......
He's digging thru a garbage can, and removing all that we discard.......

I see a homeless man.....when I'm stopped at a traffic light.......
His clothes soiled and tattered, for he hasn't slept one good night......
I see a homeless man.....who would rather work for his keep......
Have a roof over his head, so he can get a good nights sleep.....

I see a homeless man.....with sadness in his eyes.......
Who's holding a cardboard sign, as I hand him my French fries......
I see a homeless man.....who's lost his dignity and respect......
Wondering what he did wrong, trying not to reflect......

I see a homeless man......who needs a shower, and a clean shave......
As, he would accept any kinda comfort, even if it was a cold, dark, dungy cave......
I see a homeless man.....standing there in a pouring rain.......
People driving right on by, as I witness him feeling ashamed......

I see a homeless man.....shuffling his feet in the winter snow......
Wondering when his next meal will be, or where there's a warm place that he can go......
I see a homeless man......who's not prepared for another day.......
For what is he to do, when he sees no other way......

I see a homeless man......who has lost his self esteem......
Who's out in the sun all day, without any sunscreen......
I see a homeless man......sleeping under the black of the night.....
Enjoying the scraps he's found in the can, and savoring every bite......

I see a homeless man......who is offered a fresh new beginning.......
He's got a new job, he's off the street, as he can't stop himself from grinning.......
I see a man who's no longer homeless, a man who's found his way.......
A man who's got himsel off the streets, who is thankful for each and every day.
