Dusty’s Gone Away Lyrics

 

I loved the way she looked in blue jeans
And the way she sang her song
Every night I played, she tagged along
She was young, wild, and free
When she made a man of me
I can’t believe my eyes, Dusty’s gone away

Making love or making music
She always took my breath away
Don’t know why, I always thought she’d stay
Never thought our love was wrong
Never felt a love so strong
I can’t believe my eyes, Dusty’s gone away

I see her face between the rain
Lookin’ back at me
And can’t forget her ruby lips
And what she did for me

Getting’ drunk on cheap tequila
Playing music all night long
What the hell, we kept goin’ strong
Rockin’ hard and dancing slow
The sweetest times I’ll ever know
I can’t believe my eyes, Dusty’s gone away

I see her body in my mind
Like it was yesterday
I wonder who she’s lovin’ now
And why she went away

I can’t help but think about her
When I hear that midnight train
Late at night, I still call her name
Like a wind that’s come and gone
A wisp of smoke, a touch of dawn
I can’t believe my eyes, Dusty’s gone away

Sweet Ride

A selection from Tide & Season by Coffeesmoke, available on Itunes

Slippin’ away for the evening
Looking for a place we can go
To be alone with our favorite songs
Playin’ on the radio

Chasin’ a star and a feelin’
Waitin’ for the plot to unfold
The music’s sweet and I can feel the heat
Of your love burnin’ deep in in my soul
Your love burnin’ deep in my soul

Chorus
Take me a long for the sweet, sweet ride
I hope we got a long way to go
All the way to heaven takin’ it slow
Feelin’ so high on a sweet, sweet ride
Lookin’ for the end of the rainbow
You and me together two for the road.

Bridge
On a sweet, sweet ride
You can be the star of the show
On a sweet, sweet ride
I’m goin’ just as far as you go

Musical release

Tryin’ so hard to believe love
Ridin’ away on the wind
Caught again in the spell you spin
Two shadows in a beautiful storm

Sailin’ away on a mem’ry
Skinnydippin under the stars
Holdin’ you tight by the firelight
Feelin’ every beat of you heart
Feelin’ every beat of your heart

Chorus

Original Song by Billy Wells

Childen

When we were children I remember
All the games we never learned to play.
The games our parents all but gave their lives for.
They were always much too busy
To remember what a smile can mean
To a child who needs someone to talk to
Before he can dream.

When the night reached out from shadow in its dark disguise
When we’d lie awake for hours and never close our eyes
With the wind upon our faces, trembling in the dark
Waiting for the light of morning, wishing on a star

And so they gave us wooden horses
To fill the time they wouldn’t fill themselves.
So we dreamed of flights to distant places
And imagined little people and magic words to make us disappear
Still we cry when no one came to find us
When no one could hear

When the sun became a shadow in the evening sky
Falling through the smoke and fire of a dragon’s eye
Far away the sound of children and life we’d never seen
Whispered through the streets of never passing like a dream

And the night reached out from shadow in its dark disguise
When we’d lie awake for hours and never close our eyes.
With the wind upon our faces, trembling in the dark
Waiting for the light of morning, wishing on a star

Original song by Billy Wells/Quent Richter

Pieces of a Lady

Pieces Of A Lady

Wells-Richter

Looking through the quiet into the streets below
Where love has gone and every song is a prayer.
Cast upon the mirror, the colors of the night
Painted in smoke, candles that float through the air.
Sitting at the window, waiting for the dawn
I miss the sounds of the lady who has gone.
I miss the light and the laughter of her poems and her songs.

Chorus
Pieces of a lady in the mirror’s eye.
Pieces of a lady,
Falling through the crystal face of my wine.

Drifting in the seasons that mellow with the time,
Faces that pass through panes of glass in the night.
And living off the mem’ries that linger in the dark,
Feeling the deep pendulum sweep of the night.
And written on the ceiling and carved upon the floor,
Locked in the shadows that hide behind the door,
Lost in the maze of the faces and the colors that she wore.

Chorus

Shadow of the Mountain

Parked out on a lonely road,
Listening to the radio.
Strangers on a one-night stand
On a mattress in my Chevy van.
Suddenly the stars blew out;
The moon was swallowed by a cloud.
And outside in the dead of night,
The wind began to whisper

Chorus
“Don’t you know you’re in the shadow of the mountain?
It’s too late to run; you’re never gonna leave here.
Don’t you know you’re in the shadow of the mountain?
When the sun goes down, the boogeyman will get you.”

The lightning flashed across the sky.
I saw the devil in her eye.
I felt a chill run up my spine
When she pressed her icy lips on mine.
Her teeth were bared in a fiendish grin;
Her body crawled against my skin,
And outside in the dead of night
The lonely wind kept whispering

Bridge
I closed my eyes and I started to scream.
Slowly I came out of what I thought was a dream.
I shook my head and I started to laugh
‘Til I turned and saw my baby chopped in half.
Then I saw a reflection in the mirror
Of the only face I thought I’d never see.
I looked into the eyes of the devil,
And the devil was me.

Chorus

Together

Come away with me we can share a dream
Let’s go out and see the world we’ve never seen
The road may be long and the wind may blow cold
But somewhere ahead there’s a street paved in gold.

Chorus
Together we’ll make it you and I
Together we’ll spread our wings and touch the sky
Together we’ll know why
Dreamers are born to fly

Let our destiny set our spirits free
In a world we always meant for you and me
With hope in our hearts and stars in our eyes
There’ll be rivers to cross and mountains to climb

Chorus

Bridge
Our love has only just begun
Forget about the past, the best is yet to come
High above the storm there’s a rainbow shining through
And it’s shining for me and you

Chorus

Outgo
Above the clouds so high
We’ll watch the world go by
Together you and I
Together you and I

You’re the Song In Me

Original song by Billy Wells/Norman Kerner
Produced by Billy Wells/Norman Kerner/Chip Martin
Vocals by Chip Martin

You light my dreams
You make the morning feel so bright
You’re the star that shines for me
Through the darkest night.
You’re everything I am
And all I’ll ever be

Chorus
You’re the song in me
Flowing through the rhyme and the poetry
You’re the song in me
Living in the words and the melody in harmony
You’re the song in me
Everywhere I go you’re the face I see
Playing in the heart and the soul of me
Like a symphony

You make each day
So beautiful to me.
You’re the fire that burns so bright
In my memory
And in my heart you’ll stay
Forever and a day

Chorus

Musical Bridge

Chorus

Wild & Free

It took a long, long time
To get to know you
To finally hold you
I’m so glad it worked out fine
Every time we get together
Every breath I take
I just can’t shake your love
Every move I make

Chorus
Wild and free
Me for you and you for me
The two of us were meant to be
Born to run
Silhouettes against the sun
The two of us have just begun

I can’t get you off my mind
I try to hold you
But can’t control you
When I want to make you mine
It feels so right to say “forever”
Sometimes when we touch
I’m lost inside your love
I need you too much

Chorus 2
Wild and free
On the road to ecstasy
I want you and you want me
Right or wrong
Either way we’re goin’ strong
Rockin’ hard from dusk to dawn

Musical Bridge

You’re lookin’ good tonight
You got me goin’
The passion’s flowing
I can’t wait to hold you tight
Make it good, then make it better
Take my breath away
Tell me that you’ll stay
And rock the night away

Produced by Billy Wells/Chip Martin

All the Way Love

Show me your feelings and I’ll show you mine
Turn out the light, girl, and let your love shine
Let’s make some music that’ll turn on the night
Every day of our lives

Chorus
Lift me all the way up
With your all the way love
Let me live in the shelter of your loving touch
Say you’ll stand by my side if the goin’ gets rough
Lift me all the way up with your all the way love.

Come be my lover, come be my friend
Take me to places I’ve never been
Lay me down easy, get under my skin
Over and over again

Chorus

The night is so young
I’m too up to sleep
Your lips are warm and so sweet
The pleasure’s so high, the passion’s so deep
This time we’re playing for keeps
