Play Yard Blues

"Let It Shine"
Everything is good now, everything is fine
searching for a feeling, way down on the line
Everything is working, every time I need you
going with the flow, girl, to crash and Iíll burn
I want mine, so let it shine
even if it costs me all of my time
If you can hear crystal clear
even if you leave me, just let it shine
Just let it shine
Everythingís groovy, now playing for a purpose
Iím playing my guitar, thatís all I wanna do
I want mine, so let it shine
even if it costs me all of my time
If you can hear crystal clear
even if you leave me, just let it shine
Just let it shine, just let it shine
I will survive, Iíve come this far
Cantís say Iíve found an easy way (find the easy way)
I refuse to surrender, because reason I canít deny
Wasted visions, use your illusion
catch the emotion, way down the line
Everything is moving, Iím playing my guitar
like a shooting star, lighting up the sky
I want mine, so let it shine
even if it costs me all of my time
If you can hear crystal clear
even if you leave me, just let it shine
just let it shine, oh yeah, just let it shine

"Red Light Green High"
Sun will be shining, I will be leaving
Life will begin from above
I started dreaming deepest of feelings
Skyís getting cloudy and cold
Iím going down, I can hear the sound
Iím back on the ground, red light green high, going down
I have to find it, the place I remember
Someone is calling for me
Soon I will be gone, I hope I wonít be long
Iím high as I should be, red light, green high, going down
Red light, green high, going downÖ
Red light, green high, going down

"It's Only Money"
Donít believe in love, you donít believe in hate
you put your money in the bank
Itís the only way to save you wanna, all right
You try to make a buck, but you havenít made a penny
You need a little luck, but you know you wonít get any you want
Itís only money, itís only money, itís only money
You donít believe in God, you donít believe in glory
got a brother in the clinic, tell the same kind of story (kind of story)
If you had another life, you know what would be waiting
If you had another soul, you could sell it all to Satan you want
Itís only money, itís only money, itís only moneyÖ Oh yeah, oh yeahÖ
You donít believe in war, you donít believe in Jesus
got a sister in New York, she knows how she pleases
Walking the streets, on south side of the city
try to make ends meet, isnít that a pity for money?
Itís only money, itís only money, itís only moneyÖ all right

"Got My Eyes on You"
You really got something going, you really got a hold on me
Boil it down to perfection, seem to come naturally
Youíre kicking my heart in motion, everytime you walk in view
You trigger that sweet emotion, I canít get over you
Come take this trip with me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
You really got my senses reeling, you can make a grown man cry
Girl, I wanna trust the feeling, yeah, I wanna testify
Flames are getting higher and higher, I could feel it from the start
I just wanna build a fire, with every beat of my heart
Come do this thing with me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
Oh yeah, lay your love on me, lay your love on me

"When Darkness Falls"
Now I know Iím falling apart, I cannot sleep at night
I was blind, a fool from the start, but I think itís gonna be all right
I climb a mountain, I travel and fall, If I need some help I give you a call
Across the Ocean and over the fields, pull me over, put a spell on me
When darkness falls I feel all right, when the sun goes down weíll dance all night
When darkness falls I feel alive, there is a reason to satisfy your soul
Iím going slow
Every time I try to run away, the storm is coming closer
I will leave on a rainy day, and I know itís gonna be all right
Across all Nations I travel alone, my journey is here, Iím coming home
Goodbye, Rome, itís time to leave, pull me over, put a spell on me
When darkness falls I feel all right, when the sun goes down weíll dance all night
When darkness falls I feel alive, there is a reason to satisfy your soul
Iím going slow
Across all Nations I travel alone, my journey is here, Iím coming home
When darkness falls I feel all right, when the sun goes down weíll dance all night
When darkness falls I feel alive, there is a reason to satisfy your soul
(When darkness falls) your soulÖ

"Over and Done"
You have to understand the reason why I have to leave you behind
Iím trapped in this world of confusion, but I ainít gonna loose my mind
I ainít gonna feel no sorrow, for the things Iíve said and done
So give me one good reason, why I should be hanging around
You push me to the limit, baby, stop wasting my time
Now itís over and done, now itís over and done, yeah, yeahÖ
Now you keep on knocking on my door, why wonít you leave me alone
Why you still begging for more, donít you know youíre in a danger zone
Why canít you find a solution, ícause we ainít gonna be no more
Now youíre running into trouble, like so many times before
You push me to the limit, baby, look what youíve become
Now itís over and done
When the sun goes down, and the night will show you the meaning
ícause the time has come, now itís over and done
Over and done, yeah, yeah, hey, all rightÖ

"Ditch Queen"
All right
Ditch queen, sheís a danger scene, maybe just seventeen
She moves like something unreal, she thrieves on her sense of feel
She thinks sheís lady luck
Sheís a ditch queen, and she likes to follow me
Well, look at those eyes, like a pussy cat
Sheíll eat you alive, sheís love that
Well, watch out specially, wait and see
Give her one inch, you know she takes the whole thing in
Ditch queen, sheís a danger scene
She knows all of your wildest dreams
Sheís painted with Maybelline, decked out like youíve never seen
You know she likes to rock, sheís a ditch queen
And she loves my Continental
For a sniff of cocaine, sheíll do anything
and she knows where weíre staying, at the Holiday Inn
Well, she knows she doesnít need to speak to impress you
She knows it ainíther mind thatís deep
She, sheís so deepÖ She, sheís so deepÖ all right
You know she loves to roll, sheís a ditch queen
and she sure has the dope to know, sheís gonna show you the ditch
Sheís a ditch queen, sheís a careful and distant lady
Sheís got secrets, they just wonít wait
Thatís the mistery sheís like you to penetrate
She, sheís so deepÖ She, sheís so deepÖ all right
Ditch queen, sheís a danger scene, ditch queen, just seventeen
Ditch queen, sheís a danger scene, ditch queen, full of Maybelline
Oh, sheís a ditch queen, oh yeah a ditch queenÖ All right, sheís a ditch queen

"Travel in the Dark"
Travel in the dark, canít see a thingÖ Travel in the dark
Travel in the dark, canít see a thingÖ Travel in the dark
What you gonna do when you canít seem to understand
How you gonna feel when your woman with another man
Travel in the dark, canít see a thingÖ Travel in the dark
Travel in the dark, canít see a thingÖ Travel in the dark
What makes you think that you ever gonna understand
Whatís going on in the mind of another man
Travel in the dark, canít see a thingÖ Travel in the dark
What you gonna do when you canít seem to understand
How you gonna feel when your woman with another man

"Born Again"
Somethingís íbout to take me over, just about to reel me in
Every night I shake and shiver, how was it you crawled under my skin
Iím going fast, breaking down, I built my world around you
I wonít look back, pushing through, canít waste my whole life on you
How long did you lie to me, bittersweet this misery
I was blind, now I can see, on the count of ten Iím born again
Girl, you used to feel my head with your tricks and poison pen
Now I canít recall the reasons I could never get enough
Too far gone, loosing ground, I built my world around you
I canít go back, crashing through, canít waste my whole life on you
How long did you lie to me, bittersweet this misery
I was blind, now I can see, on the count of ten Iím born again
How long did you lie to me, bittersweet this misery
I was blind, now I can see, on the count of ten Iím born again, born again
