there’s a song where I belong

baby, don’t get me wrong
I really wanna write you a love song

something to be sung in harmony by a rock band
but in the meantime, I just wanna hold your hand

so let’s dance in the clouds to the back beat
and make the world hotter with our fusion heat

oh, to be so close in each other’s arms
spending forever enjoying each other’s simple charms

and I promise someday I’ll write you a song
because I’ve finally found out where I belong

I’ve got a girl and she got me

I’ve got a girl and she’s so, so extreme
she’s outa this world if you know what I mean
I’ve got a girl and she’s so, so mean
she don’t really luv me as sad as it may seem

I’ve got a girl with balls of brass
she’s a real fine lady but she ain’t got no class
I’ve got a girl and she’s made of glass
she says it’s over and all good things must pass

fold me, cold me, mold me, told me
hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me

I’ve got a girl and she broke me down
she just laughed and said I was a clown
I’ve got a girl and she’s the talk of town
she threw me into a river of tears and left me to drown

I’ve got a girl and I thought she was the one
she was full of spirit and so, so much fun
I’ve got a girl and her phaser was set on stun
but now it’s all over and I’ve been left all undone

fold me, cold me, mold me, told me
hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me

a decade of popboomerang records

how long has it been Scotty, since we first began to trade?
and you sent me CDs from down under bands that for the first time I played

like Michael Carpenter, You Am I, Even, and the delicious Icecream Hands
and so many other great, previously unknown to me, Australian power pop bands

we finally met when you came to L.A. for the International Pop Overthrow
that was such a good time and a really great power pop show

then you started your label, called popboomerang records
and released a decade of great music with melodic sounds and harmonic chords

for years, I’ve always said that your taste in music is second to none
so, here’s hoping that popboomerang records will have another decade of musical fun!

time has forgotten me

time passes so slowly
I’m waiting for to go
when I’ll return to here
that I do not know

I seem to wait for forever
time, time has forgotten
time has forgotten me

waiting for a woman
waiting for a while
waiting for my time to come
time to walk that last mile

I seem to wait for forever
time, time has forgotten
time has forgotten me

my singing girl

listen to my singing girl
as she sings a song for me
and as she sings a song
she drives away all my misery

sing, sing, sing, my singing girl
sing, sing, sing, my singing girl

and along the way
I hear her softly say
that she loves me
and now I’m so happy, that I could

sing sing, sing with my singing girl
sing sing, sing with my singing girl

sing, sing, sing
sing, sing, sing our song of love

dance

dance to the rhythm of the music
in your rock n roll soul
let your emotions run free
and lose all your self control

enjoy all the beauty
that is all around us every day
like a catchy melody with harmony
that takes all your cares away

tap your foot to the living beat
until you have to jump up and shout
that there is something so wonderful
and that this is what life is all about

the turn on to life song

when I sing alone
it’s all alright
it always sounds
like three-part harmony to me
listen: one, two, three

but I’d like to sing with you
if only we had the time
to get all the way
to the end of this rockin’ rhyme

singing the lyrics of life
let’s put an end to all strife

hey la, hey la la
hey la, hey la la

hello, my name is Ron
hurry, let’s get it on
before the end comes and we turn off
and the lights all go out
let’s all shout

love, love
love is the answer
hate, hate
hate is the cancer

Lori, Lori Lorelei
beckoning me
Lori, Lori Lorelei
calling me

her song is a song of love
her tale a tale of woe
but I can’t stop loving her
despite the truth that I know

Lori, Lori Lorelei
Lori let me be
Lori, Lori Lorelei
set me free

song of man

sad songs

sad songs (Photo credit: pequeña esquimal)

nothing is forever
nothing lasts that long
but for worse or for better
we try to carry on
we carry on until we’re gone
cause that’s the song of man

my love for you is special
it’s easy for you to see
but it can’t overcome the sadness
that the world has come to be
and we try to carry on
carry on until we’re gone
because that’s the song of man
the song of sadness
we understand

our hearts beat out the rhythm
of our music and our lives in blood
our soul plays the melody
singing hopes whistling wishes
a quiet sound against the noise
our minds make up the lyrics
to say what we want to say
but when we go to sing the words
they never come out that way
and in the background the noise
destroys what little there was
that was good
in the song of man

each man has his own music
each his own way
each has a little part
of the masterpiece to play
the only problem
is that only the conductor
knows that it’s all the same
all the same song
the song of man

and the whole is far greater
than the sum total of all the parts
not better or worse
not good or bad
but something much more
that’s the song of man
a song of such sadness
more than any one man can stand

let the music begin…

Please be true

English: me and my friend

English: me and my friend (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

if I sing my song of love, my love
and ask you to be true
I know my voice would crack, my love
and that just wouldn’t do

oh no, but I love you
oh no, but I do
oh no, but I want you
so please be true

if I croon a comic tale of woe, my love
and tell you about our fate
I know you wouldn’t believe it, my love
when I ask you for a date

and yes, I love you
you must know that I do
and how very much I want you
so please be true

instead of singing a song of love, my love
I’ll tell you what I’ll do
I’ll reach out
put your hand in mine
and tell you that I love you

because I love you
yes, yes, I do
and I want you
so please be true

because I love you
yes, yes, I do
and I want you
to be you

Pam

Pam I love you
more than any girl
I’ve ever met before
this I know for sure
because now I’m alone
when I’m without you
I’m alone again, alone again

I just
can’t stand
to be
without you
my love
Pam, Pam

the sun was shining overhead
the day I met you
Pam, I love you

Pam you mean more to me
than Life itself
and now that your gone
I’m all by myself
without you
I can’t live, can’t live

my life has no meaning
when I’m without you
I can’t forget you

Pam I want you
more than anything I’ve ever wanted
and I want to tell you
that I’ll always be here waiting for you
always waiting, always hoping

I just
can’t stand
to be
without you
my love
Pam, Pam

the sun will shine once again
when you return to me
how happy we will be
Pam just you and me
Pam just you and me

I just
can’t stand
to be
without you
my love
Pam, Pam

Pam, Oh Pam

I Remember

A walk on the beach

Image by TimOve via Flickr

on the day I met you
my love I came alive
I thought of how I could get to you
and make you be my bride

cuz I love youI really do
cuz I love you, I really do

on our first date together
my love I felt for you
we held hands
walked in the sands
and talked of what we would do

cuz I love youI really do
cuz I love you, I really do

and now we’ve been married for years
my love has faded away
I don’t know where it has gone
but I guess I’ll always stay
anyway

I remember I loved you
I really do
I remember I loved you
I really do

I remember
I remember I loved you

I Just Want to Tell You

Banjo Ukeleles

Image by Accumulata via Flickr

I just wanna tell ya I’m thinkin’ of ya
I just wanna tell ya that I care
I guess I’m too deep in love with ya
and it’s gettin’ me nowhere

and then you say goodbye
and I just wanna cry
and then you say you’re gonna go
what I’ll do I don’t know

cuz I just wanna tell ya that I luv ya
I just wanna be with you
I guess I’m hip deep in love with ya
and I just don’t know what to do

and then you say don’t cry
I was tellin’ you a lie
you’re gonna stay with me
oh, how happy I can be
