Lost On Vacation

Gimme Five 02:14
My friends are waiting in the car They probably wonder where we are Right sock wrong shoe show your face Gotta be ‘round here someplace Time’s in short supply Give me a minute, maybe gimme five Pretty soon it won’t take too long These days are here and gone Looks like my bags are packed beneath my eyes Found my keys in turn I lost another night Toss and turn, a candle burnin’ at both ends Worn down paper thin And I guess I guessed it right Man I’m blessed the mess is mine
3.
Caught in the wind, burnin’ inside Can’t comprehend but I can abide Weak in the knees, all it took was a nudge And now I’m fallin’ down the bottomless pit of your love The sight of your face gets me through the day A gentle embrace, a roll in the hay I’ve already fallen, there ain’t no comin’ up You see I’ve fallen down the bottomless pit of your love And when I close my eyes your face is all I see Guess I never realized how deep a well of love could be The sound of your name puts my head in a whirl And it’s livin’ the dream just to call you my girl And a little bit more is never enough Can’t you see I’ve fallen down the bottomless pit of your love Uh-yes I’ve fallen down the bottomless pit of your love
4.
Feelin stuck like a snowbound truck I can’t keep the wheels from spinning out Lord have mercy don’t you curse me I Know what it’s all about In the patchwork of a landscape undeveloped my men Within an instant it becomes something That it’s never ever been Lost on vacation, another Sloop John B Y’know it’s different from the last one But that ain’t stoppin’ me, no Lucky day, I am on a plane, I am on my way home at last Above the ground, until we touch down I’m not just high on life There’s no solace in this town, no escaping the mundane There’s no weather underground, I just gotta get away This is where I draw the line, I can’t take it anymore Can’t we put these qualms aside, can’t it just be like before

It’s a quarter to four, who could that be at the door I don’t care no more, they can knock it to the ground I’m going to sleep for a spell, bid you all farewell Until when, you can never really tell See, I’m workin’ up gusto for the night life Storing all my stamina for a good time tonight Enjoy your day, but don’t let me hear you say I’m sleepin’ my life away, shut the windows draw the drapes And turn that radio static on, always playin’ my favorite song And kindly move along, we can catch up later on After I get my rest and get myself all dressed It’s anybody’s guess what lies ahead

Jettison 03:17
I beg your pardon, there’s always something new to forgive Learning lessons to assist us in the way we live Always reaching trying to grasp that plateau Restless breathing like there’s danger down below That’s just how it goes, why nobody knows Feel the warmth of promise slowly sinking in Through all you’ve done and will do Where you’ll go and where you’ve been Always reaching trying to grasp that plateau Restless breathing like there’s danger down below That’s just how it goes, why nobody knows Pushing envelopes no way to understate Give it forward, jettison like a cannonball Concealing all that you’ve picked up along the way

It’s a lifted concept brought up from the deep Beyond expiration but somehow it still keeps Taken for granted, un-neglected, re-assigned Till a purpose from out of the blue is brought to mind Under the weather, All over the earth Another conclusion, another birth All over nature, under the law Here lies perfection, there lies the flaw Safety for children, women and men Prospering pilgrims, a means to an end Carving faces into stone, time erases favoring no one Dying habits re-emerge anew, another statistic barrels through the roof Disappointments sealed into a wall, unrelenting in its efforts not to fall Over nature, under the law Here lies perfection, there lies the flaw Under the weather, all over the earth Another conclusion, another birth

You say there’s no relation, but you’re not fooling anyone Known all about your flying arrangement And how you’re setting off to race the sun Getting up too early, it’s begun to wear you down So much you’ve got in tow They’re gonna catch you ridin’ dirty As you barrel on, barrel on down the road Going for broke Trying to make yourself a name really did a number on ya And scattered out your brain You’re gonna drive yourself insane if you carry on any longer Carryin’ all that weight Going for broke So get to bed early, all you need’s a lot of rest Come tomorrow, you might find yourself refreshed Don’t try to get even closer to the max Time to move forward, no time for looking back When it’s all in your periphery that’s the moment you go blind While you wait for your epiphany why don’t ya Make up your mind
