All Over The Road Lyrics

ALL OVER THE ROAD
well i climbed into the car but i forgot where i was going
in the back seats a guitar and theres a strange wind blowing
but i'll find my way there because theres no use lying
and so i'll just enjoy the ride and have a good time flying all over the road

well shes a real self starter at least she looks like she is
and she loves to play the martyr her religion is show biz
but now her loves gone cold ah but i saw that coming
and if she lets herself go i'll have a good time running all over the road

well he can talk a big game for such a little man
and he will never take the blame he just changes the plan
now hes in trouble with the law caught in a lying situation
even the blind judge saw that his phony explanation was all over the road

i settled down to write a book but i couldn't decide
should i make it sort of rough or on the romantic side
so i wrote down the words and then i gave it to my baby
she said it sounded like a hit but that it was too much maybe all over the road

NOVEMBER SEA
theres a shadow on the beach because the sun won't hit its mark
and its a perfect afternoon yet theres a shadow on my heart
and theres a wave thats rising one that everybody sees
we hope we're ready when it breaks but hoping never seems to ease november sea

in the time it takes to breath and in the curling of a wave
i watch them grow then dissapear i know it happens every day
and i've tried to do things right and sometimes i've gone off track
but like the curling of a wave i know that i can't turn it back

november sea will you remember me although you seem so far and out of reach
i'll seek the lessons that you teach and i'll find my place upon your beach
november sea

and so i try to keep them safe as safe as anyone can be
i know the ocean has to have them but for now i watch the sea

november sea...

although you seem so out of reach
i'll seek the leesons you can teach
i'll find my place upon your beach
although you seem so out of reach

HOT VEGAS
well i needed a change getting tired of the east coast
so i flew down range to the city with the most
and then my eyes were opened by a blinding light
she brought the daytime in the middle of the night, hot vegas

eighty miles above the desert in the silent cold of space
theres a satellite thats beaming information

i should have read the signs sin city is her name
i new it wasn't mine i had to have her just the same
and so i stacked them high and let the lady spin
i watched that ball go 'round and "round and finally sink in, hot vegas

eighty miles above the desert in the silent cold of space
theres a satellite thats marking a location

last chance to win i bet it all on one big roll
they tracked them coming in eight miles high up over the pole
and i was in sonoma by the time that they touched down
now that strip is really glowing but theres no one left in town, hot vegas

IF I HAD SHOT YOU WHEN I FIRST MET YOU (I'D BE OUT OF JAIL BY NOW)
well the first time that i met you i thought you you the sweetest thing
even when my old dog blue would see you he'd start to howl and sing
but now you've taken old blue, my pickup truck and you emptied out my bank account
if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now

well i must have been clear out of my head to stick with you for all these years
i should have left you when i caught you with my best friend wayne
in my bass boat drinking beers
what you were doing wasn't fishin' and i can't help wishin' i'd avoided you somehow
if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now

if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now
i might have just winged you in one of your toes 
it might have stopped you from running around
i could have gotten used to the solitude the jumpsuits and the prison chow
if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now

well i guess there's nothing worse than wasted time
and it'll probably take more than a couple of shots to get you off my mind

if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now
i could have gone on getting that milk for free but you tricked me into buying the cow
i could have been paroled before i got to old and never made another wedding vow
if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now
yeah if i had shot you when i first met you i'd be out of jail by now

ATTRACTION
somthings got to happen, something wrong or right
some convergence of attraction you are thinking
until then just let it go, forget about what might be
you feel like all your options have been shrinking

you've got to let it go, just let it go, everything is going to  be alright
you've got to let it go, just let go, you, you can make it through the night

Can't remember how it started but i know it left a mark
on a soul who never knew what it was here for
sometimes you take a little something just to keep away the darkness
but it only makes the night time seem to last more

to afraid to take some action for the risk that i could fail
looking only for distractions never knowing in the asking
i could make my dream set sail, now i'm feeling the attraction

like a song can spark a memory of a lover from the past
you attract the kind of future that you choose
so just stay positive and be aware the sun is setting fast
and sing your song as if you've nothing left to lose 

AUTUMN GIRL
in the morning when the wind is high, she stares at her reflection
the drugstore window people hurry by, she waits for her connection
steps off the bus at twenty after eight, she's  working hard by nine
so looking forward to her coffee break when she'll cook it up one more time
no one ever thought that she would make it in the city
nows she's walking down the street singing do wah ditty

autumn girl, you know the leaves are falling and the winters calling for you
autumn girl, you know the sun is setting and you must be getting along
get back to summer autumn girl

she nods off later on the bus at night and slowly climbs the stairs
chasing the dragon up another flight washing away despair
stares out the window as it starts to snow then finally falls asleep
dreams of a sunny beach in mexico where she never waits and she never weeps
another working day and there's no time for self pity
now she's walking down the street singing do wah ditty (do wah ditty ditty)
 
autumn girl, you know the leaves are falling and the winters calling for you
autumn girl, you know the sun is setting and you must be getting along
get back to summer, autumn girl

SURELY YOU NOTICE
everyday i see her there, and i try my best so not to stare
is what I'm feeling such a sin, I'll try to hide this foolish grin
surely you notice

i know i shouldn't fantasize, apologize or analyze
because there is no compromise, if i told you would you be surprised
surely you notice

surely you notice when you are close to me
that i find it hard to speak in your company
but you belong to someone else and i just can't help myself
put my heart upon the shelf, surely you notice

but i could never brake this code, even if your interest showed
no i could never take that road

now it just gets harder every day, trying to keep these crazy thoughts at bay
please forgive the foolish things i say but I'm tongue tied when you smile that way
surely you notice

TIMMY LIKES FIRE
looking back it might have started at school
made to stand in the corner because he wouldn't behave
he stopped to kick a cat on his way back home...
then he cooked his hamster buddy in the microwave
well he was brought to church on sunday, even sang in the choir
but timmy didn't like to pray or sing, Timmy likes fire

later on in his teenage years, voted most likely to be weird at old union high
he stole his daddy's zippo and a can of gasoline...
then he lit up old union like the fourth of july
well he was brought to church on sunday, even sang in the choir
but timmy didn't like to pray or sing, timmy likes fire

timmy likes fire, timmy digs flame and nobody knows just who or whats to blame
and if you need to know if you need to inquire, yeah its just as plain as a flame
timmy likes fire

you know it only takes a little spark inside the deepest darkest part
thats buried in the fiery heart of tim
his head is humming like a thousand wings as the heat blows down                               all these evil things, that he thinks have ever hurt or threatened him

after years of court trials and jail
and trying to smother out a passion that he just couldn't shake
one night he torched a vacant building and he watched it go up
then saw two people on the roof who were trying to escape
he ran back inside and flew up the stairs, 
then led those people out as onlookers cheered and cried
and when the local tv station guy asked him his name,
he just grinned and turned around and ran back inside
well he was brought to church on sunday, even sang in the choir
but timmy didn't like to pray or sing, timmy likes fire. timmy likes fire

HOMECOMING QUEEN
what's that you said about my babe, you say she's walking away
what's that you heard about my babe, did you hear it today
you saw her dancing down at dino's and she was bathed in light
with just high heels and a smile on, am i hearing you right

you can't be talking about my babe, she'd never play that scene
i met her when we went to BC, she was the homecoming queen
and we'd go dancing down at zelda's, she looked so soft and cute
but now you say shes down at dino's in her birthday suit
shakin' yeah you say that she was shakin' , are you sure your not mistaken
you said that every seat was taken, can't you see my heart is breakin'

sometimes you'll find me down at dino's, with all those other guys
just sitting waiting for my baby to come dancing by
she's got her high heels and her smile on, she's all bathed in light
no matter what you say about my baby, she's looking good tonight

she said i was her one and only, there was no substitute
and now you say she's down at dino's... in her birthday suit

NEW THING
everything that you hear is true. everyone that you talk to can't be lying to you
and when the phone doesn't ring you know its her
and when your friends stop coming around you can almost be sure
she's got a new thing, yeah she's got a new thing, you know she's got a new thing
and the suns going down

just the things that she used to do. just the way that the wind blows all around you
the morning sun that used to warm your days
and the rain that washed your cares away
don't seem the same since she went away, no 
she's got a new thing, yeah she's got a new thing, you know she's got a new thing
and the suns going down

you know you should have gotten hip, you know you should have seen it coming
you know you should have gotten hip man, known all the time that she was running

never thought that you'd see the day, taking it out on yourself this way
you never should have gotten in so deep or ever let her see your hand
now the storm clouds seem to follow you and you feel like half a man
she's got a new thing, yeah she's got a new thing, you know she's got a new thing
and the suns going down

LIVE ON
i watch the leaves they're falling, its that time i guess
another life was calling and now you can rest
and though i did not get to say all the things i feel today to you
now you live on in my heart

i'm looking at your picture you don't look that old
that smile that warmed my childhood will never grow cold
and when i need to know what's right, your always there to shine a light on me
now you live on in my heart

i had a dream you and i were walking down by the sea, neither one was talking
you walk ahead and then you turn and smile
it's not for long, it's just a little while
i had a dream

and when i need to know the truth, i know
i stop and think what you would do, i know

i see you when i'm sleeping, those dreams are too few
your memory i'll be keeping, it's all i can do
and though the river may divide us now i know you hear these words somehow
now you live on in my heart

WAKE UP
it's the dawning of a new day sun is on the rise
cup of coffee and the tv then i see your eyes
wake up wake up morning sunshine

every morning need the story want to know the score
what's the weather morning glory, could we ask for more
wake up wake up morning sunshine

what a lovely day, sunshines on the way today
wake up wake up morning sunshine
