Song Lyrics

     

Lust On Liars

-Ramsey


Verse 1

Somewhere south in the gloom and the boom

Lived a boy whose mother got dolled up dying.

Left alone on a limb with a dad full of gin

Gave up vaudeville and jet plane flying

Nothing new round these parts for a boy heading West

On tracks his words neck tie trying

Caught the train down in Sid traveled north to the coast

Met a man in a band his first name was Jim.


Pre-Chorus

I was born in the evergreens

Made my money on the sound machines

Sang songs of lust on liars

Reared and raised where the light careens

Off the widows and the porno queens

Sold songs to uptown choirs.


Verse 2

Old Jim let the boy tag along on some gigs

Carry bags up the west coast trailing

Held his sleeve to the stage walked

The steps to the mic his legs and his eyesight failing

But the boy heard old Jim fill the room with the songs

Rage and the loss and that Gibson crying.

As it dawned from the road when he’d wake, count the take

Split the haul with the band and he’d curse it again.  


Pre-Chorus

I was born in the evergreens

Made my money on the sound machines

Sang songs of lust on liars

Reared and raised where the light careens

Off the widows and the porno queens

Sold songs to uptown choirs.


Chorus

Stood his wife with their newborn dying

Hair pulled back in the March rain crying

Jim’s heart and his breath had broken

Unformed words formed the road unspoken

Ran the coast with his songs on his shoulder

Midnight rage as the years grew older

Played the songs, while the hymns were paying

Ghosts sang soft in the neon swaying.


Verse 3

Well the boy stayed with Jim for a week on the road

To a graveyard near black rock mining

Kneeled down at the grave of Jim’s wife and his child

Died of hunger and all day crying

Said he lost her when the sun had no rules 

And the darkness came calling on a Spring afternoon

Wiped his eyes, bowed his head 

Said a prayer to St. Jude in the moonlight it read like a hymn. 


Pre-Chorus

I was born in the evergreens

Made cash in the sound machines

Sang songs of lust on liars

Reared and raised where the light careens

Off the whistle of the porno queens

Sold songs to uptown choirs.


Chorus

Stood his wife with their newborn dying

Hair pulled back in the March rain crying

Jim’s heart and his breath had broken

Unformed words formed the road unspoken

Ran the coast with his songs on his shoulder

Midnight rage as the years grew older

Played the songs, while the hymns were paying

Ghosts sang soft in the neon swaying.

Won't Let You Down

-Ramsey

  

Verse 1

Here we stand, with nothing left to say.

Been traveling on words we sold on the way.

You're right from your side and so much been said

You said I’m not built for this holy shit or faithful in bed.


Chorus

So just say goodnight then.

And be on your way.

Tomorrow won’t sing to the songs of today.


Verse 2

Thought this would pass, our lives carry on

The blue of a summer’s day, our kids playing on the lawn.

But our long love grew weary and fled from the scene.

Towed the wreckage of our loneliness to the end of our dreams.


Chorus

So just say goodnight then.

And be on your way.

Tomorrow won’t sing to the songs of today.


Bridge

But I see in your eyes you still love me

Maybe that and some fucking will do.

And we’ll keep down this worn-down memory

Or at least find that sound that we knew.

We’ll keep watch for that last hope performance

Some ordering of words in the queue

To rescue the run from the ruin we lifted

To bring back the me and the you.

So what’s just one more argument

What’s one more fight?

If it means that I'm still standing next to you, honey

And it means that I’ll feel you tonight.


Chorus

I won’t let you down.

I’ll stay here all night

If it means I’m still close to you

What’s one more fight?


I won’t let you down.

I’ll stay here all night

If it means I’m still close to you

What’s one more fight?


(Just guitar and vocal)

I won’t let you down.

I’ll stay here all night.

If it means I’m still close to you

What’s one more fight?

Have You Ever

-Ramsey


Verse 1

Have you ever lost the day,

Picked up the moon, and packed its parts away?

Buried in the frozen sand, I held her hand

But her songs refused to play


Verse 2

Have you ever fallen back,

To life without the Earth beneath your feet?

Left alone to dance in minor keys

For long, too long, it seems.


Chorus

Have you ever heard the end

A lonely man, who softly sang the rhyme

As she left you in that empty room.

December late, the snow, the grace, goodbye.


Verse 3

Have you ever lost your way,

Sought comfort strange in girls that walk the fray?

In the night and then, a sharper turn

Your wreckage on display.

Have you ever circled back

Regrets all dressed reflecting back at you?

Cried the day she died, stood up and fled,

But them ghosts they travel too.


Chorus

Have you ever heard the end

A lonely man, who softly sang the rhyme?

As she left you in that empty room.

December late, the snow, the grace, goodbye.


Conclusion

So very far I feel you near

But far and lost in me I fear 

These words that I need to make clear

This time’s for you, while I’m still here.

And so I’m you from blood to bone

From songs not sung, and words not known.

In grace from you please let me breathe

In me is you it will not leave.

In song and prayer please let me out.

Please forgive me these booze, these words, this doubt

And so I sing please let me out.

Please let me out.

Gave It All Away

- Ramsey


Verse

You were my dream

My sharp heaven fantasy

Thighs running wild and free

As far as my hands could see


Verse

But you’re still my girl

Soft where sights seem to be

Wrapped in dark melodies

You're the last ticket back to me.


Chorus

Bent by your time ticking

Rolling this line wishing

All of our Grace had just run astray

But no, my Love, we gave it all away.


Verse

There was a rule

Gold like rules long to be

Written on hotel sheets

Shrouded in kisses sweet


Verse

Where I was your fool

Your dancing red candle flame

Busking for oxygen

Your songs in the pouring rain


Chorus

Bent by your time ticking

Rolling this line wishing

All of our Grace had just run astray

But no, my Love, we gave it all away.


Post

Oh my Love, through the stillness we stare

At the wreckage distilled and declared

Cause oh, my Love, we gave it all

Through the scorn of your bedsheets

Those hotels called love.

My soft words caressed you

As you came from above.

And your eyes they undressed me

When the music turned on.

And our hearts they grew restless

In those songs, you sang of.

But everything, everything, it came undone

But no, my Love, we gave it all away.

I Love You More

-Ramsey


Verse

Goodnight my dear

This is the last time I’m leaving

Slow song stood still.

These hearts past the point of believing

But I love you more.

I love you more than anyone


Verse 

That kiss in the cold

Your arms wrapped in mine first concealing

So much for so long

So much that this love started stealing.

But I love you more

I love you more than anyone.


Chorus

We let it go.

We chose this long before choosing to.

I loved you more.

But I lost you long before losing you.


Verse

Our lives built lines

Brought down by the weight of their shadows

In the arc and the grind

Our lives turned the wheel when it mattered.

But I love you more

I love you more than anything.


Chorus

We let it go.

We chose this long before choosing to.

I loved you more.

But I lost you long before losing you.


But I love you more

I love you more than anything.

Shape of Goodbye

-Ramsey


Verse 1

Dreamt the dream of you, 

The plight of two, 

Through storms that blew two lovers out of sight.

It was something inside, 

I leaned in, in stride, 

It was all so alive that night. 


Verse 2

Just a drink or two

The hours that flew

Two whispers blew your beauty into view

Well we talked of the sun, 

You Me Beach, it'd be fun

You asked me bout the shape of you.


Chorus

What is the shape of my daydreams

What is the shape of your hand in mine

What is the shape of your lips against my lips

And what is the shape that we would find?


Verse 3

Back and forth again

These steps resume

Resembling this gravity that pulls inside.

Well my heart and hands collide

Where your smile and hips preside

Just drifting through the shape of you.


Chorus

What is the shape of my daydreams

What is the shape of your hand in mine

What is the shape of your lips against my lips

And what is the shape that we would find?


Bridge

Was it all just a fantasy you see?

Trapped down in memories.

Well I've sung these thoughts and more

In some silent songs before

But with you, these words...

Find harmony.


Chorus

What is the shape of my daydreams

What is the shape of your twirling hair

What is the shape of your sweet soft eyes

In the night, without a care?


What is the shape of my daydreams

What is the shape of your hand in mine

What is the shape of your lips against my lips

But what is the shape of goodbye?

Soothe Me

-Ramsey


It'll all be alright, if you just soothe me.

It'll all be alright, if you just soothe me.

I'm worn down and restless discarded by you.

And my last stand sat down a mile from the truth.

Can't stop this catastrophe, it won't go to sleep you see

So all that I'm asking is for you to come home to me.


Let go of your reasons, let go of your plans.

Let go of your long worn excuses that don't mean a damn.

Can't sit here alone no more staring down a silent phone.

Fortunes bent sideways on the side of the road.

Bought into you buying me but now you won't set me free.

So all that I'm asking is for you to come home to me.


(Guitar solo)


It'll all be alright, if you just soothe me.

(repeat)


(guitar/vocals)

It'll all be alright

It'll all be alright
