HAPPY PARADE

Fear of Things Unknown

Now I know the things inside your head

Better now, some things are left unsaid

With open arms I let you run right back to me

I'll dry those tears from off your cheeks and then we'll see

If all the love I gave to you is gone dear

If all that's left right now is fear 

Of everything unknown

All those nights we huddled up all tight

All those times I whispered, "Everything's alright."

Are they gone? Did you drop them off with someone else?

Oh my dear, where have you been while I've been all alone?

Is all the love I gave to you far gone dear

Is all that's left right now the fear 

Of everything unknown?

Oh, I don't know what to do. My heart's in ruins over you.

And each breath that I take, well, I'm taking it for you

Don't know how, don't know what I'm gonna' do

We gotta' bring things up just a little bit

But inside I feel that I will pull through

Is all the love I gave to you far gone dear

Is all that's left right now the fear 

Of everything unknown?

Happy Parade

The sun ain't shinin' no more

Good times have all locked the door

Remember things that were right

By photographs in the night

When things are looking their lowest

Chin up and greet the new day

With open arms and open will to dream

Your fears will dissolve away

As you lead the parade

You march in happy parade

We're marching everyday

Ignoring things that they say

To rain on our cavalcade 

You march in happy parade

The sun ain't shinin' no more

Good times have all locked the door

Feeling things that were right

By memory in the night

As you lead the parade

You march in happy parade

We're marching everyday

Ignoring things that they say

To rain on our cavalcade 

You march in happy parade

Where Are You Now?

Where are you now? Where are you now?

Are you sitting in the light? Have you told our pets goodnight?

Does your back hurt tonight? I'm sorry I'm not there.

You know I can fix it right

Hold on tight.

Hold on tight.

Oh the moon that's out so bright tonight

I see it too

And the sun to come tomorrow

Warms my skin too

And even though there's miles between us

I can feel your heart beat

And in my mind I know that we'll be okay

One step closer to the day...

Where are you now? Where are you now?

Are you watching our TV? Are you thinking of me?

Does your head ache tonight?

Does your tongue taste of wine?

I'm sorry I'm not there to share a bottle, so fine. 

Oh the moon that's out so bright tonight

I see it too

And the sun to come tomorrow

Warms my skin too

And even though there's miles between us

I can feel your heart beat

And in my mind I know that we'll be okay

One step closer to the day...

Where are you now? Where are you now?

Are you sitting in your chair? Are you coloring your hair?

Does your heart ache tonight?

I'm sorry I'm not there.

You know I can fix it right

Hold on tight. 

Hold on tight.

The Girl Who Liked the Boys

There once was a boy whom you thought was so fine

And every time you seen him, you said, "He must be mine." 

This happens oh so very, so very often now

And closing one door always opens up one behind

But every time he comes in and sits down by your side

You think about the things that you always try to hide

Like that one time when... 

No, no, you mustn't tell

Or that one time when all you...

Huh uh, all is well

And when they say it's time to settle down

You know you'd really rather run around

Yeah when they tell you, baby, settle down

You know you really want to run around

Eenie meenie miney mo

Catch a tiger by his toe

And if he hollers let him go

No, no, not today

Everybody always stickin' noses where they don't belong

Everybody always thinks that nobody is ever wrong

Everyone everywhere singing everybody's songs

Not them, not you, not now

And when they say it's time to settle down

You know you'd really rather run around

Yeah when they tell you, baby, settle down

You know you really want to run around

 

Choices

You see them go, you ask them where they're going and can you come too.

They say, "Come on, it will be fun but you can't tell nobody... ever."

Oh no, this sounds like something you should not do.

Oh no, just go on home and forget you ever saw them. 

And then you see her, it's that girl you like that lives down the road from you.

Maybe if she hadn't been there you'd have made some wiser choices?

Oh no, this sounds like something you should not do.

Oh no, just go on home and forget you ever saw them.

Seventeen, you shouldn't know what the inside of jail is like.

Seventeen, you shouldn't know how to tell if your bail is set right.

Your mom and dad come to visit you and you cannot look at them,

It was about this time last year they came to see you play the big game.

Oh no, this sounds like something you should not do.

Oh no, just go on home and forget you ever saw them.

Oh no, this sounds like something you should not do.

Oh no, just go on home and forget you ever saw them.

Promise

Anywhere you go, yes I'll be with you

Everywhere you go, just watch the sky

Anywhere you go, yes I'll be with you

Watching over you, yes, with my eyes

If ever anyone were to try to hurt you

You don't need to worry none

I'll be there to help you, even if you can't see

Watching over you, yes, with my heart
