Lyrics from the 'What Makes The World Go Round' CD.

 

The Firemen

You know life it’s changed it’s never gonna be the same- Ever since that day it’s hard to know just what to say
You know I’m just a fireman that’s my trade- Born to put out fires and carry people through burning flames
But nothing can prepare you for something like this- When you find pieces of lives that once did exist

Oh Lord can you hear me I feel so alone- And as I search for my comrades who lie with others down below

Now at first it seemed so unreal- And if you’re not there you don’t know how it feels
How could you understand? Unless you’ve stood just where I have

Oh Lord can you hear me I feel so alone- And as I search for my comrades who lie with others down below

And sometimes I believe it’s just like a dream- And then I wonder why not me why not me

Now maybe some of the names might be forgotten- If nobody knew they where there
But look how we’ve all united- And everyone’s got some love they wanna share

Hey everybody its your love that helps carry me on- And if I couldn’t feel your hearts vibrations
I don’t think I could last that long

Because love carries on yeah love carries on love carries on-
Even when your gone love carries on even when your gone
Love carries on and it makes me strong


What Makes the World Go ‘Round

Now I keep hesitating on just what I should be- And is there anybody out there that feel’s just like me?
For I’ve been undecided on which way I should go- For there’s so many changes and so many roads

If the world’s going down would we all still go ‘round-
For when we’re caught in a crowd you know there’s always some way out-
And I wanna know yeah- I wanna know- What makes the world go ‘round

Now if I’m misdirected please excuse me- But it’s hard to explain it but easy to see
You know it’s all around us we’re in the danger zone- And if we’re not ready we might just lose our hold

If the worlds going down would we all still go ‘round
For when we’re caught in a crowd you know there’s always some way out
And I wanna know yeah- I wanna know- What makes the world go ‘round

What makes the world go- What makes each life so- What makes the world go ‘round

Now in the midst of confusion you know it’s hard to see- That soon we’ll all be faded and just a memory
But the world will keep turning after we’re dead and gone- Can anybody tell me how it carries on?

If the world’s going down would we all still go ‘round?
For when we’re caught in a crowd you know there’s always some way out
And I wanna know yeah- I wanna know- What makes the world go ‘round?
What makes the world- What makes the world- What makes the world go ‘round?

I Got the Fire

The world's pounding, pounding down- Trying to drive me into the ground
Hold me back from anywhere- But there's something I gotta share

And I got the fire inside of me

Now I don't know how I got here- Or how may days I lived in fear
Or what to do or what to be- And once I found out I was free

And I got the fire inside of me

Inside of me, yeah- Inside of me
Inside of me- Inside of me, yeah

Here I am lookin' ahead- Think of what I just said
I could be lost or confused- And baby one thing, I've been used

And I got the fire inside of me 
You know I've been waiting way to long- to find out what went wrong
Bye bye baby blue- I know now what I should do- so long


Flight 93

Baby don’t you hear me I’m here on the phone- Calling you up ‘cause I won’t be coming home
I think I think my time has come- For we’ve been hijacked and there’s no place to run

And baby I think I know just what to do yeah- Baby I think I know just what to do
Baby I think I know just what to do yeah- Just what to do now

Now darling don’t you know they got the trades- They’ve been making bombs out of our own planes
And everybody up here we all just had a vote- To take this plane down and that ain’t no joke

And we’re gonna take this plane down- We’re gonna take this plane down
We’re gonna take this plane down- And don’t you frown, just stand proud

Now love I must confess- Who would ever think there life would end like this?
That’s why I’m calling you to let you know- Just have a good life and know I love you so

And we’re gonna take this plane down- We’re gonna take this plane down
We’re gonna take this plane down Girl you know me
And we’re gonna take this plane down We’re gonna take this plane down
We’re gonna take this plane down Lord don’t you hear me- Take her down- Let’s roll-

Rock in the City

From any land or port that's far away- To any town across the USA
You know most people really know the right way- But somehow we seem to go astray
There's so many groups in society- saying won't you come and join me
And then they just disagree- On the way they think it's supposed to be

And I just wanna rock in the city tonight- I don't want no hassle and I want no fight
I just wanna rock- In the city tonight- yeah baby- tonight

Now when there's times when it's hard to survive- And no matter what you do you just barely get by
And do we ever really come to realize- And see how the world seems to mold our lives
Are we just victims of society- Meant to feel the way they want us to be
But girl can't you see- It's up to us if we wanna be free

And I just wanna rock in the city tonight- I don't want no hassle and I want no fight
I just wanna rock- In the city tonight- yeah baby- tonight

I just wanna rock in the city- I just wanna rock in the city- Tonight

Now if I cold see myself through another man's eyes- Maybe I'd see through my own disguise
Maybe I'd be a lot more wise- At the way I choose to live my life
So many times in society- You end up like the way they want you to be
But girl, you gotta believe- It's not going to happen to me

'Cause I'm just gonna rock in the city tonight- I don't want no hassle and I want no fight
I just wanna rock- In the city tonight- yeah baby- tonight

The Man Who Would Be King

I'm confused as I'm sitting by myself- But when I hear the news I know what it's about
Two politicians who want to be king- But neither one really knows anything

Don't you see how the world controls you and me
Come on set us free

Now, down in Florida, they're running all around- Some say they sunk so low they're way beneath the ground
Searchin' for dimples and hangin' chads- But how can anyone know what someone else had

Don't you see how the world controls you and me
Come on set us free

What if it was you- Could you speak what's only true
You know it's hard to see- The only way to be free

Now the deadline's gone and the time is getting short- And you know it's drowning in the courts
And all the ballots now have all come in- But still nobody know's who's gonna win

Don't you see how the world controls you and me
Come on set us free

Now you know we really got to choose- But whoever wins, he's really gonna lose
For they're gonna say they cheated and they lied- They'd do anything their man inside

Don't you see how the world controls you and me
Come on set us free


Ode to Bob Dylan

Stuck inside a space that I couldn’t comprehend- And then I heard someone singin’ like Mr. Dylan
I tried to hear the words that he tried to say- But I was stuck inside a mobile out in east L.A.

And it’s daylight dreams of Mr. Tambourine just playing his song
Does anybody know where Bobby Dylan’s gone?- I’d like to hear his songs

Now All Along the Watchtower- I was Blowin’ in the Wind-
I knew the Times were Changin’- But I didn’t know when
So I went down to 4th Street but I wasn’t positive- That I could reach John Brown before anyone else did

And it’s daylight dreams of Mr. Tambourine just playing his song
Does anybody know where Bobby Dylan’s gone?- I’d like to hear his songs

Girl of the North Country She belongs to me- And you know My make back pages are just my history
And though Only a Hobo one day I shall be free- When I meet my maker on The Paths to Victory

And it’s daylight dreams of Mr. Tambourine just playing his song
Does anybody know where Bobby Dylan’s gone?- I’d like to hear his songs

I’d like to hear his songs playing all day long- I’d like to hear his songs

By the Walls of Red Wing I was Rolling Like a Stone-
They let me die in my footprints out on Desolation Row
And now they say a Hard Rain is surely gonna fall- But it ain’t me babe writin’ this at all

And it’s daylight dreams of Mr. Tambourine just playing his song
Does anybody know where Bobby Dylan’s gone?- I’d like to hear his songs

Lay lady lay just for a day Don’t think twice it’s okay

Harley Rider (BONUS TRACK)

Now there I was- all by myself
Riding through the country- with no one else
I was riding- and I was free
And then I heard her- call out to me

Hey Harley rider- where you going to?
You know I wanna- feel like you
Hey Harley rider it's you and me tonight

Now she took me- by the hand
She tried to make me- understand
She pulled me under- a golden mist
Then she whispered- something like this

Hey Harley rider- where you going to?
You know I wanna- feel like you
Hey Harley rider it's you and me tonight

Nobody knows- just how it feels
Until you rode some- Harley wheels

Then I told her- I had to leave
She said take me with you- won't you please
She pulled me closer- how could I resist
And when she hopped on- she spoke like this

Hey Harley rider- where you going to?
You know I'm gonna- feel like you
Hey Harley rider it's you and me tonight
