Forget you

When I dream your face it comes to mind

The feeling of your hand so warm in mine

I tried so hard to forget you

but a part of me just will not let you go

Somehow I left a piece of my heart thats buried back in that place we met

first love they say is hard to forget but I want to

Forget you

We were just kids way back when we’d stay up hours making future plans

I’ve moved on but still you’re in my head

and a part of me just will not let you go

“but kids move on and make their way, and life rolls on just like a train

another time another place would you recognize my face would you even know my name

somehow I left a piece of my heart thats buried back in that place we met

first love they say it’s hard to forget but I want to

forget you

One Step Beyond Love Song and Lyrics

One Step Beyond Love Song and Lyrics

One Step Beyond Love

Verse 1
When the world threatens you,
And there’s nothing left to do,
When all your sins come due,
Love just won’t see you through.

Chorus
I’ll bring you something stronger,
One step beyond love for you,
No need to fear any longer,
I’ll dedicate myself to you.
I’ll dedicate myself to you.

Verse 2
Fear can only seize your mind,
When there’s no one to remind
You how life’s purely designed
For two to make it refined.

Chorus
I’ll bring you something stronger,
One step beyond love for you,
No need to fear any longer,
I’ll dedicate myself to you.
I’ll dedicate myself to you.

Bridge
Take my hand,
Feel my breath,
A new land,
Transcend death,
Dedicate,
Dedicate,
I’ll dedicate myself to you.
I’ll dedicate myself to you.

Instrumental

I dedicate,
I dedicate,

I dedicate.

Chorus
I’ll bring you something stronger,
One step beyond love for you,
No need to fear any longer,
I’ll dedicate myself to you.
I’ll dedicate myself to you.

I dedicate,
I dedicate,

I dedicate.

I’ll dedicate myself to you.

Mountain Switchback Lyrics by Lonesone Train

Mountain Switchback Lyrics by Lonesone Train

Mountain Switchback   Listen on Spotify

It’s not easy being a working band on the road. Indeed the singer sings “it’s hard to be the perfect band.” There are many distractions, but the worse of all is when they’re playing, and a beautiful woman on the dance floor breaks into a frenetic dance.

Mountain Switchback Lyrics
(Gibson/Bates/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1
Set them up,
Tear them down,
Electric blowup,
Always out of town,
Tempo speedup,
Alcohol slowdown.

Sometimes it’s a chore
To be the perfect band,
Only one thing rattles us more,
Just one thing to jolt us more . . . .

Chorus
And there she is,
More and more,
Exploding on
The dance floor,
Short, young woman
In halter top and
Tight blue jeans,
And she won’t stop,
By all means,
Tight blue jeans
Diamond in her belly,
Whiff of apple jelly,
Red tat on her
Ankle . . . .
She gives her
Leg a smack,
Lord, more curves than
A Mountain Switchback.

Back In The Hills
On ode to country living.
Back In The Hills
(Gibson/Bates/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1
Way back in the Hills
Find them sit’n around,
Doing what they know they do best,
Not too many people,
Know what they do,
That’s where they go to kick it back and rest.

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.

Verse 2
Away from the smog,
Smelling cows and hogs,
To me that’s what I call fresh air,
Some go there to write,
Others to spend the night,
The closest thing to a city is a county fair.

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.

Instrumental

Verse 3
Yeah, back in the Hills,
Laying in a field,
In a country sky you can see a lot more stars,
Try it in the city,
You’ll find it such a pity,
Laying on the concrete, dodging cars.

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.

Instrumental

Chorus
No, you don’t need to worry about a neighbor,
Don’t need to pick up a telephone,
Don’t worry about being loud,
Or fighting the big city crowd,
Way back in the hills you’re all alone.
Yeah, think what you want, I call it home.
