Those Were The Days

Once upon a time there was a tavern

Where we used to raise a glass or two

Remember how we laughed away the hours

And think of all the things that we would do?

Those were the days my friend

We thought they'd never end

We'd sing and dance

Forever and a day

We'd live the life we choose

We'd fight and never lose

When we were young

And sure to have our way

Yesterday I stood before the tavern

Nothing seems the way it used to be

In the glass I saw a strange reflection

Was that lonely woman really me

Those were the days my friend

We thought they'd never end

We'd sing and dance

Forever and a day

We'd live the life we choose

We'd fight and never lose

When we were young

And sure to have our way

Through the door I heard familiar laughter

I saw your face and heard you call my name

Oh my friend we're older but no wiser

For in our hearts our dreams are still the same

Those were the days my friend

We thought they'd never end

We'd sing and dance

Forever and a day

We'd live the life we choose

We'd fight and never lose

When we were young

And sure to have our way

Out In The Clear 

(All Things Considered)

With all things considered

I can change my perspective

There’s so much riding on the balance

I wanna learn

I’ll stand corrected

I’m trying to find my way out in the clear

 

I can click my heels

And wish up on a star

But until I heal

I won’t go very far

I’m trying to find my way out in the clear

 

What am I trying to say

What’s my point

I am no stronger than my weakest joint

And I find it’s ok to change your mind

 

If I have a look on my face 

that says I still want more

It’s because I’m face to face

With a mirror before an open door

I’m trying to find my way out in the clear

 

What am I trying to say

What’s my point

I am no stronger than my weakest joint

And I find it’s ok to change your mind

Joytown

Fathers they have big hands

And they pat gently on your head

Mothers they all make sure

Everyone is happy and well fed

Everything is instant

No one has to wait too long

And Lennon never has to sing

A Paul McCartney song

Hey we're living here in Joytown

It's the city of the sun

Where everyone loves everyone

Loves every single one

No one sells their roommate's stuff

So they can get a fix

No one fears the darkness

No one fears the number six

And everyone has someone 

They can share their sadness with

No one leaves the slightest doubt

No one ever takes the 5th

Hey we're living here in Joytown

It's the city of the sun

Where everyone loves everyone

Loves every single one

Jesus and Mohammed

And Buddha live in town

Zoroaster and Ba'h'aula

And Moses hangs around
And when they get together they are quite a noisy crew
They laugh about their legacies over cigarettes and brew

Hey we're living here in Joytown

It's the city of the sun

Where everyone loves everyone

Loves every single one

Senator McCarthy enjoys a book by Marx
And people tear down parking lots
So they can build more parks
And Jimi plays the perfect note that never seems to end
And Martin Luther King has got a blonde white girlfriend

Hey we're living here in Joytown

It's the city of the sun

Where everyone loves everyone

Loves every single one

Mr. Sunshine

Rogers Boat

Wait a second now

Hold on, I admit

The space between ourselves

Can’t put my finger on it

 

Time keeps moving on

Next stop grab another ride

Took what I could take

I miss what I left behind

 

Tuesday morning came and went

We held the moon

We walked the line

Somewhere in the afternoon

We found ourselves

Just you and I

 

Frenzy came along

With Wendel keeping time

Nichols in my shoe

But Mr. Sunshine’s on my mind

Try to make our way

Through this comfortable place

We set our mind on what’s ahead

And what is at stake

 

Tuesday morning came and went

We held the moon

We walked the line

Somewhere in the afternoon

We caught ourselves Just you and I

 

Frenzy came along

With Wendel keeping time

Nichols in my shoe

But Mr. Sunshine’s on my mind

 

We held on to the moon

Somewhere in the month of June

We caught ourselves with Mr. Sunshine

Frenzy came along

With Wendel keeping time

Nichols in my shoe

But Mr. Sunshine’s on my mind

You’re heading out

On a little boat

Got all your gear to stay a float

So you think you’re ready to face the turbulence

 

You’re dreaming how

You’re gonna get out of here

Cause what you have found throughout all these years

Is that nothing has ever changed

 

You’re finding out 

That you’re drifting off

Into the emptiness of being lost

Cause you always look the other way

To be a part of the parade

 

What is it like to be on display

Do you think you can take 

What the others may say

As in a stolen moment of a photograph

Is it about having the last laugh?

 

You think that you, James Dean, Brando and Cary Grant

Belong in the same league of extravagance

And then you find out with all that you get

Is as meaningful as the smoke from your cigarette
