goodbye bluebird, fly away wish i could travel with you, sometimes you have to stay so when those season's keep changing And you feel those homesick blues creeping in i'll keep my baby safe from harm keep her cozy, keep her warm in a new nest in a new town soon we'll be singing hello bluebird, how was it down south? up here, up north getting more confident in ourselves so as those season's keep changing and you feel those homesick blues creeping in i'll keep my baby safe from harm keep her cozy, keep her warm in a new nest in a new town Soon we'll be singing Soon we'll be singing so when those season's keep changing and you feel those homesick blues creeping in i'll keep my baby safe from harm keep her cozy, keep her warm in a new nest in a new town soon we'll be singing goodbye bluebird fly away thank you for the invitation, this time I know i'll stay so when those season's keep changing and you feel those homesick blues creeping in i'll keep my baby safe from harm keep her cozy, keep her warm in a new nest in a new town soon we'll be singing soon we'll be singing soon we'll be singing

been a searcher in this crazy life a young boy with a pocket knife and a map of this great big world someday to see it when my futures unfurled been an architect making dreams laying foundation, erecting beams still that boy but I'm now a man salvage materials however I can something different something real something to explain just how I feel been a swimmer in the endless sea diving the depths of the void in me surfaced to quickly so i got the bends beautiful beach but alone with no friends been a boxcar with a heavy load scraping the tracks as I slowed been a puppet on a tangled string wind up the monkey, watch him sing something different something real something to explain just how I feel something different something real something to explain just how I feel something different something real something to explain just how I feel something different something real something to explain just how I feel

rows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air and feather canyons everywhere I've looked at clouds that way but now they only block the sun they rain and they snow on everyone so many things I would have done but clouds got in my way I've looked at clouds from both sides now from up and down and still somehow it's cloud illusions I recall I really don't know clouds at all moons and Junes and Ferris wheels the dizzy dancing way that you feel as every fairy tale comes real I've looked at love that way but now it's just another show, you leave 'em laughing when you go and if you care, don't let them know don't give yourself away I've looked at love from both sides now from give and take and still somehow It's love's illusions I recall I really don't know love at all tears and fears and feeling proud to say I love you right out loud dreams and schemes and circus crowds I've looked at life that way now old friends they're acting strange they shake their heads they say I've changed something's lost but something's gained in living every day I've looked at life from both sides now from win and lose and still somehow it's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all I've looked at life from both sides now from up and down, and still somehow it's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all

are there better days in front of us than the ones we left behind? up along Rock Creek below Bennett Peak pile in that rusty red Ford sit on a brother’s lap up that dusty dirt road that wasn’t on the map keep your dreams in your chest pocket memories like a locket don’t forget who you were never forget who you wanted to be past days are long gone what remains, is better days and this song are there better days in front of us than the ones we left behind? down south river road above two wheels that flowed pedaling that rusty red bike the one that I still ride first belonged to my brother till he got another keep your dreams in your chest pocket memories like a locket don’t forget who you were never forget who you wanted to be past days are long gone what remains, is better days and this song are there better days in front of us than the ones we left behind? to Conoco, for lunch we’d go they had nachos, cheese and soda A gift from my sister to me my favorite restaurant what more could a kid want? keep your dreams in your chest pocket memories like a locket don’t forget who you were never forget who you wanted to be past days are long gone what remains, is better days and this song there are better days in front of us than the ones we left behind

about

This collection of songs is my farewell to the past. I choose to record in my childhood hometown so I could collaborate with musical mentors from my youth. I am proud to have grown up in a small town. Thank you SLV family and friends.
