Rock Away

When this life takes a toll. When you find you are in that hole.
Just rock. rock. rock. And roll. Let sun shine in your soul.
Hey, Hey, Hey. No. No. No. Just rock and roll.

When we try to find our way. We try our best to seize the day.
We sometimes find it slips away. It feels like it was all a fake.
Take it day by day. Just rock. Rock away.

When you see the darkness grow. When you can’t find a flow.
Just rock. rock. rock. And roll. Let sun shine in your soul.
Hey, Hey, Hey. No. No. No. Just rock and roll.

We are born to live. Born to play. Being alone is not our fate.
Don’t let it be a grave. Chase the flame. Chase what you crave.
Take it day by day. Just rock. Rock away.

When we hurt, we put on a show. We get stuck in the undertow.
Just rock. rock. rock. And roll. Let sun shine in your soul.
Hey, Hey, Hey. No. No. No. Just rock. and roll.

When we have the highest stakes. When we get lost in mistakes.
We forget the price we pay. We forget what we have to save.
Take it day by day. Just rock. Rock away.

Rock Away

Verse 1:
I hear that Rooster crow, when Alice is in chains
I see the Black Hole Sun, from my Rusty Cage
The Bulls are on Parade, with a pocket full of Rage
I am a Scorpion, blowing on the Winds of Change

The Melons here are Blind, we ain't go No Rain
Come As You Are, we are here to entertain
I'm just a Creep, catching a southern train
Hurt by a Nine Inch Nail, I can feel the pain

Chorus:
In the Byrd house. we rocked and rolled
In G-Town, those days were solid
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four carat gold
(Whistle Tune)

Verse 2:
On a Highway to Hell, with DC powered songs
We're 4 Non-Blonds, screaming What's Going On
Life is Sublime, I'm loving What I Got
These Boys are getting Beastie, y'all, it's Sabotage

Like my Chili Hot, so I'll see you on the Otherside
Climb a Stairway to Heaven, drinking all my wine
Like a candle in a box, you left me Far Behind
In a Jam, wanna be a Better Man, but I am Still Alive

Chorus:
In the Byrd house. we rocked and rolled
In G-Town, those days were solid
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four carat gold
(Whistle Tune)

Verse 3:
A Seven Nation Army on a road with White Stripes
We see Hotel California, decide to stay the night.
Today might be the greatest, but let's live for Tonight, Tonight
Singing like Three Little Birds, everything is gonna be alright.

Chorus:
In the Byrd house, we rocked and rolled
In G-Town, those days were solid
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four carat gold, gold, gold.

Would that be worse?

You're full of whine

So mind your business

Open our minds
Save our words
For a real fight

Here we go
Round and round
I don't understand
Why you always puttin' down?

K k k Karen
You're act like a clown

You find drama
Everywhere you go
Creatin' mayhem
Puttin' on a show

Just can't wait
To f around

What if we all
Just settle down
Breathe it in
Breathe it out

Chorus:
Turn it up, Turn it down

Love Boat

Verse 1:
Out in the ocean
Waiting for you
Always wishing
That you'll come through

Waves bobbing
That's me and you
Never sure when
You'll be true

Chorus:
I'm on the love boat
Caught in the undertow
I'm on the love boat
With a diamond wrapped in coal

I've cried a river
I've played the fool
I just can't help it
My anchor is wrapped in jewels

Verse 2:
Turbulent waters
Salty and blue
Last chance
And we'll be through

I need a lifeboat
What do I do
Rock me baby
Sing me the blues

Chorus:
I'm on the love boat
Caught in the undertow
I'm on the love boat
With a diamond wrapped in coal

I've cried a river
I've played the fool
I just can't help it
My anchor is wrapped in jewels

Verse 3:
I'm rowing sorely
I've got no crew
I'm sinking quickly
And you are too

I just can't help it
You are my beau
If you're going under
Then I am too

Chorus:
I'm on the love boat
Caught in the undertow
I'm on the love boat
With a diamond wrapped in coal

I've cried a river
I've played the fool
I just can't help it
My anchor is wrapped in jewels

Love Boat

Verse:
Under the blue skies of Quintana Roo
Waves roll by and I think of you
Hard drinks and soft sand
So fun, so much to be said

Chorus:
I raise a glass, to my friends and above
A toast to us all, a symbol of love
I thank my lucky stars, a tribute to you
Under this Tortuga moon

Too, too, too
Too cool
Too cool

Verse:
Day two in Cabana Cancun
And I find myself, laughing with you
Walking around in a sunny funk
Tacos and tequila, comfortably drunk

Chorus:
I raise a glass, to my friends and above
A toast to us all, a symbol of love
I thank my lucky stars, as I sing this tune
Under this Tortuga moon

Too, too, too
Too cool
Too cool

Verse:
Day three, we sit at the bar
It's dark all around
You see a shooting star
We embrace the beach party trend
We wish that tonight will never end


Chorus:
I raise a glass, to my friends and above
A toast to us all, a symbol of love
I thank my lucky stars, as I climb this dune
Under this Tortuga moon

Too, too, too
Too cool
Too cool

Verse:
Day four, under this palm tree
No financial responsibility
We spend all day in the sea
This beach vibe is my cup of tea

Chorus:
I raise a glass, to my friends and above
A toast to us all, a symbol of love
I thank my lucky stars, no need to leave soon
Under this Tortuga moon

Too, too, too
Too cool
Too cool

Verse:
Day 5, more fun in the sun
Ball on the beach, we’re on a run
We’re all super sunburned
Every tequila shot has been totally earned

Chorus:
I raise a glass, to my friends and above
a toast to us all, a symbol of love
I thank my lucky stars, a tribute to you
Under this Tortuga moon

Too, too, too
Too cool
Too cool

Tortuga Moon

Nerd Girl

You fly fly fly
I want you to scream and shout
Don't don't don't
Let them ever psych you out

You learn learn learn
All that you can learn
You burn burn burn
Don't let that fire go out

You don't don't dont
Be afraid to follow your heart
You're science and you're arts
There's no limits to your smarts

Chorus:
Hey there, nerd girl
You're super ultra dope
Hey there, nerd girl
I need a second dose

You shine shine shine
With all your novel works
You keep those kooks and quirks
Don't you listen to those jerks

You slide slide slide
With all your unique styles
You go that extra mile and wear
Whatever makes you smile

You love love love
With all your mighty heart
You shield those parts that you hold dear
We can't tear them apart

Chorus:
Hey there, nerd girl
You're super ultra dope
Hey there, nerd girl
I need a second dose


Outro:
And when you find
You've left us all behind
No apologies
Are due

You're a shooting star
Love who you are
Authentic, lovely
You

Chorus:
Hey there, nerd girl
You're super ultra dope
Hey there, nerd girl
I need a second dose

Rock Away

When this life takes a toll. When you find you are in that hole.
Just rock. rock. rock. And roll. Let sun shine in your soul.
Hey, Hey, Hey. No. No. No. Just rock and roll.

When we try to find our way. We try our best to seize the day.
We sometimes find it slips away. It feels like it was all a fake.
Take it day by day. Just rock. Rock away.

When you see the darkness grow. When you can’t find a flow.
Just rock. rock. rock. And roll. Let sun shine in your soul.
Hey, Hey, Hey. No. No. No. Just rock and roll.

We are born to live. Born to play. Being alone is not our fate.
Don’t let it be a grave. Chase the flame. Chase what you crave.
Take it day by day. Just rock. Rock away.

When we hurt, we put on a show. We get stuck in the undertow.
Just rock. rock. rock. And roll. Let sun shine in your soul.
Hey, Hey, Hey. No. No. No. Just rock. and roll.

When we have the highest stakes. When we get lost in mistakes.
We forget the price we pay. We forget what we have to save.
Take it day by day. Just rock. Rock away.

About Me

Bio

I write for the love of the game. I'd like to believe that if you find "it", it will find you too. And even if it doesn't, at least you had fun playing.

Lyrics are like a sister. You ride their coat tails, learning about the world and yourself as you go. They are there for your birthdays, your

eak ups, your big moments. You reminisce about people and places and silly fads. They know your moods and secrets. They've heard your shower voice and seen your ugliest cry.

I love that lyrics can tell a story or be nonsensical and abstract. I love that they
bing people together, a shared experience. It moves me when stadiums full of people sing the words that someone wrote. There are not many things in life that are like that.

I don't play or sing, but I've loved music for as long as I can remember. I grew up listening to Oldies, Musicals, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Soft Rock, Country, Hair Bands, Metal, Grunge, Alternative, Rap, Hip Hop, Pop, Punk, Reggae. I wake up every day with something different playing on the internal jukebox. My writing seems to be just as varied.

To be a part of something that others are moved by, big or small, would be meaningful to me - that's why I'm here.

I write for the love of the game.
