UNDER THE BIG BIG SKY

East of the Sun, West of the Moon – Robert M. David

East of the sun, west of the moon
Where time stands still, is where I’ll find you
Just one regret, all I have left
East of the sun, west of the moon

There was a time we became
What dreams changed in us
Now only in dreams, can I change
What time became for us
Til I wake to find, that bitter sweet regret
Time won’t let me forget
East of the sun, west of the moon

There was a time we became
What dreams changed in us
Now only in dreams, can I change
What time became for us
Til I wake to find, that bitter sweet regret
Time won’t let me forget
East of the sun, west of the moon
East of the sun, west of the moon

Baby Don’t Come ‘Round Here Anymore – Russell deCarle

Each night I lie awake in bed just hoping
For that old familiar knock upon my door
By day I tell my friends I’m fine, but I’m barely coping
Now my baby don’t come ‘round here anymore

I stumble out of bed and meet the morning
I know just what this day will have in store
Blues skies have disappeared
It keeps on storming
Now my baby don’t come ‘round here anymore

She packed her bags and went home to her mother
She didn’t say if she’d be coming back
I tell myself it’s only temporary
That train she’s riding must have jumped the track

She packed her bags and went home to her mother
She didn’t say if she’d be coming back
I tell myself it’s only temporary
That train she’s riding must have jumped the track

There’s traffic on the street, the town is buzzing
Nothing’s changed, it’s business like before
Inside these lonely walls a heart is breaking
Now my baby don’t come ‘round here anymore

These blues that I’m feeling, I can’t go on concealing
Now my baby don’t come round here anymore

No Rule No School For Love – Russell deCarle

She said don’t worry baby
I’ll always care
I just need some time alone
Like the distant early warning
Of a chilling autumn morning
Leaves you shivering down to the bone

Your friends may tell you
They’ve been there before
But it’s falling on deaf ears
All you hear is the roar
Sounds like thunder
It’s just a door, closing on a love grown cold

No rule no school for love
Divine intervention from above
On your own, alone, a heart so heavy
It sinks like a stone
Now she’s gone, long gone

Down on your knees
Throw your hands in the air
Howl at the moon above
If it’s an answer you’re seeking
That old man won’t be speaking
He’s mum on the subject of love

No rule no school for love
Divine intervention from above
On your own, alone, a heart so heavy
It sinks like a stone
Now she’s gone, long gone

Gone, Long gone…

Goin’ Away Party – Cindy Walker

I’m throwing a going away party
A party for a dream of mine
So, put me somewhere off in a corner
With a glass and bottle of your party wine

Don’t’ worry, it won’t be a loud party
I feel too low to get too high
It’s just a sad, going away party
For a dream I’m telling goodbye

Don’t worry, it won’t be a loud party
Dreams don’t make noise when they die
It’s just a sad going away party
For a dream that I’m telling goodbye

Don’t Ask The Question – Russell deCarle

I don’t have to ask the question
You’re so down in the mouth
I’ve seen that look so many times
Another love headed south

You say the cards are stacked against you
You can never seem to win
But you bring nothing to the table
Expecting you’ll cash in

A gleam from an eye
Like a sign from above
Is all you ever needed
To start the freefall into love

Where do you turn to
When your world comes crashing down
Welcome back baby
To the last game in town

I could promise you happiness
Promise the moon
Twelve months of springtime
Snow falls in june
I can’t walk on the water
Turn it to wine
If you’re looking for a miracle
I’m wasting your time

I don’t have to ask the question
You’re so down in the mouth
I’ve seen that look so many times
Another love’s headed south

Ain’t no news around here
It’s been this way for years
You come here looking for an answer
And find a shoulder for your tears

I could promise you happiness
Promise the moon
Twelve months of springtime
Snow falls in june
I can’t walk on the water
Turn it to wine
If you’re looking for a miracle
I’m wasting your time

Shooting Star – Russell deCarle/Steve Briggs

A southern night, a shooting star,
Cares and troubles seems so far…away
Two strangers caught up in a moment,
Dancing while the mariachis play

Round and round
Heavens above
Such a thrill
A night of stolen love
Till the dawn
Brings parting and sorrow
Holding on, like there’s no tomorrow

And when that night came to an end,
A vow they made to meet again someday
Where the mariachis play

In my heart, a flame it lingers still
In my mind, I’ll live in dreams until
Tenderly, I taste your lips divine
And once again, your heart beats next to mine

A southern night, a shooting star
Put my troubles off another day
And hold you tight
And dance the night away

Fingernail Moon – Russell deCarle

Middle of June
Under a fingernail moon
Stars are dripping above
Whippoorwills call
Oh the wonder of it all
Happy just sitting with one I love

Sweet breath of a breeze
Blowing through the trees
Like a trembling kiss
Senses are reeling
Oh what a feeling
To be together on a night like this

In the distance a shooting star
Sails cross the universe
We’re so happy where we are
In our heaven right here on earth

In the distance a shooting star
Sails cross the universe
We’re so happy where we are
In our heaven right here on earth

End of the day
The milky way
Stretching far as the eye can see
Everything’s right with the world tonight
Picture perfect for you and me

Everything’s right with the world tonight
Picture perfect for you and me

Under the Big Big Sky – Russell deCarle

Way out west, you and me
Rolling along on the lone prairie
Livin’ it up
Under the big big sky

Ducking out from under a cloud
Far away from the maddening crowd
Livin’ the life
Under the big big sky

Under the stars at the side of the trail
Falling asleep to the coyotes’ wail

(Yodel)

Morning comes to this promised land
Humbling the most confidant man
Livin’ the dream
Under the big big sky

Heading out on another day
Driving our cares away
Happily
Under the big big sky

Sit back, enjoy the view
Oh how I cherish these moments with you

(Yodel)

Way out west, you and me
Rolling along on the lone prairie
Livin’ it up
Under the big big sky

Happily
Under the big big sky

Can’t Find the Song in my Heart – Russell deCarle

Can’t find the will, can’t find the way
That’s how I’ve been waking up, most every day
Can’t find a reason, can’t get a start
Can’t find the song in my heart

It’s all I can do just to fall out of bed
Black cloud floating around my head
Our world as we knew it has fallen apart
Can’t find the song in my heart

Used to be such a thrill
To be near you
Where do those feelings disappear to?

Used to be such a thrill
To be near you
Where did those feelings disappear to?

Chatty people with nothing to say
Time keeps on ticking, it’s slipping away
Used to come together
Now it’s a la carte

Can’t find the song in my heart
Can’t find the song in my heart
In my heart
In my heart
Can’t find the song in my heart

Girl with the Golden Hair – Russell deCarle

I’m thinking of the girl with the golden hair
Close my eyes and I see her there
Dancing in the moonlight, stars shine on
Moving to the music of her own sweet song

So far away yet so close to me
Ain’t that just the way love’s supposed to be
Oh so real and a heart that’s true
One look my way makes me lose my blues

Well I love her and she loves me
Lonely nights are history
Everywhere we go it feels like home
Moving to a rhythm that’s all our own

Clouds may come and rain may fall
But that don’t bother us at all
We know that time will turn the tide
And leave a rainbow waiting on the other side

In my dreams so many lovers come to me, but they cannot compare
To the dream that I awake to, and the love that’s waiting there
For me…..

In my dreams so many lovers come to me, but they cannot compare
To the dream that I awake to, and the love that’s waiting there
For me…..

I’m thinking of the girl with the golden hair
Close my eyes and I see her there
Dancing in the moonlight, stars shine on
Moving to the music of her own sweet song

Moving to the music of her own sweet song
I’m thinking of the girl with the golden hair
Yeah, I’m thinking of the girl with the golden hair
(….golden hair)

Blues for Christmas – Russell deCarle

Something’s in the air
People rushing everywhere
There’s no mistaking Christmas time again

Fearless leaders on the TV
Scrubbed until they shine
Will tell us what a bang up year it’s been

Well, it’s a wonderful life for those who have plenty
Loved ones gathered near
But I can’t help but feel for the ones who haven’t any
It’s the loneliest day of the year

Saint Nicholas…he may be jolly
I can’t help feeling melancholy
I’ve got the blues for Christmas

Carolers sing and jingle bells ring
It’s a holiday parade of shuffling feet
But when the lights go down on this tinseltown
The unfortunate take back the street

Well, it’s a wonderful life for those who have plenty
Loved ones gathered near
But my heart reaches out to the ones who haven’t any
On the loneliest day of the year

The halls are decked with boughs of holly
Still I feel so melancholy
I’ve got the blues for Christmas

The halls are decked with boughs of holly
Still I feel so melancholy
I’ve got the blues for Christmas

Saint Nicholas…he may be jolly
I can’t help feeling melancholy
I’ve got the blues for Christmas
