12 Bar EP

12 Bar Room Blues

you can’t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar room mood today

i’m not talking bout a chocolate bar
gold bar, horizontal bar, johnson bar or crow bar
bumper bar, censor bar, sash bar
t-bar or scroll bar, power bar, and no, no bar of soap

you can’t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar room mood today

i’m talking bout a rooftop bar
pool bar, cocktail bar, beer bar and wine bar
beach bar, biker bar, dive bar
mini and dance bar, hotel bar, and yes, a bar to smoke

you can’t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar room mood today

i’m setting the bar high today

you can’t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar mood
you can‘t bar me from drinkin
i’m in a 12 bar room mood today

the skin of peaches

let’s consider this life
a poorly executed rehearsal
a system error
it‘s nothing personal

everybody makes mistakes
the gods being no exception
then again they brought back jesus and elvis
so there‘s hope for us i guess

in our next life

i’ll join the rat pack
i‘ll join the highwaymen
you’ll join the dixie chicks
you’ll join the trio

we‘ll open in venice
the road goes on forever
wide open spaces
do i ever cross your mind

we‘ll have fun fun fun fun fun at the beach
we‘ll shout yeah yeah yeah yeah impeach him
we‘ll have the wisdom of teachers
and the skin of peaches

in our next life
we‘ll make it alright
so why not get a little taste of it tonight

that‘s how young she is

she never owned a watch
she believes in love
she‘s not afraid of dying
that’s how young she is

she‘s neither red nor blue
she likes holding hands
she never needs a whiskey
that‘s how young she is

that‘s how young she is
how beautiful
that‘s how young she is
i‘ll take care of you
i‘ll keep an eye on you
i‘ll look after you
how young you are
how beautiful

life makes sense

moonshine
at sunset
corn aches
for breakfast

life makes sense
every night‘s a reason
for another day

workload
at clock in
wages
at clock out

life makes sense
every day‘s a reason
for another night

hopes
at first sight
doubts
for ever

life makes sense
every life‘s a reason
for another death

life makes sense
every death‘s a reason
for another love

life makes sense

i’m not afraid

your skin
your breath
i‘m not afraid

i don‘t need to wait until you‘re dry
whatever pours down from the sky
whatever crawls up from the deep
i don‘t need
i don‘t need
to wait

your hand
your lips
i‘m not afraid

i don‘t need to wait until you‘re dry
whatever pours down from the sky
whatever crawls up from the deep
i don‘t need
i don‘t need
to wait

i‘m not afraid

one thing that‘s guaranteed
within my love
you‘re never quarantined

i don‘t need to wait until you‘re dry
whatever pours down from the sky
whatever crawls up from the deep
i don‘t need
i don‘t need
to wait

i‘m not afraid
