LYRICS

 

Leaving Today Ft. Eliza Gilkyson (Roddan Music B.M.I -2018)

Called you on the phone today, no answer left a message anyway,

Once upon a time, was just you and I, Can’t get past the last time you told me that lie,

I just called to say…. I’m leaving today…

I called you back, you were already gone,       

Seems what we had, well it all went wrong,

I’m sorry for the things I said,

hurtful words I knew you would dread,

I just called to say…. I’m leaving today…

Yeah I’m leaving this town today, ain’t no reason, for you and I to stay,     

I’m already on, on my way,

Was a time you looked me in the eye, 

Now I only see big blue empty lies,   

Swore the last time I was gonna cry,     

Now’s the day the day, we say goodbye, 

Yeah I’m leaving this life today, ain’t no reason for us to stay,

I’m already on my way, we’re already gone to stay,                                                

Just called to say, I just called to say,  

Just called to say….  I’m leaving today…    

Don't Be Troubled Ft. Eliza Gilkyson (Roddan Music B.M.I -2018)

Yesterday, was the 59th day that she went away

Swore you stop, thinking bout what you wanted to say 

Now you wish, you could just drift away,

Don’t be troubled, don’t be troubled, don’t be troubled, my friend

Your Momma died last year, before the spring came, 

Now nothin’ really seems the same, 

Just an constant, sea of change

Don’t be troubled, Don’t be troubled, Don’t be troubled, no more, 

Don’t be troubled, don’t be troubled, you’re not alone my friend…

You never thought it’d rain, on your wedding day

Your hopes and dreams, they just washed away,

He’s not the one you loved anyway, Now you wish you could……just drift away

Don’t be troubled, Don’t be troubled, Don’t be troubled, no more,

Don’t be troubled, don’t be troubled, you’re not alone…

Judyann (Roddan Music B.M.I -2018)

 Child to Buck and his best girl, born of love on a September day, 

Little girl with long black curls,

So many troubles would come your way…

Taught your sons all they needed to know, selfless love will grow and grow,

Judyann you always loved the rain, no one ever knew your pain,  

Brown eyes heart of gold, spread your wings let new life unfold,

Judyann you’ll always be with me, rest high on that mountain peak,

Cast your line in a quiet stream, we’ll go fishin in our dreams…   

Today I went to your old home, you were gone felt your spirit roam,

Judyann you always loved the rain, no one ever knew your pain,   

Brown eyes heart of gold, spread your wings let new life unfold,

Judyann you’ll always be with me, rest high on that mountain peak, 

Cast you line in a quiet stream, we’ll go fishin in our dreams,                 

Judyann you’ll always be with me, rest high on that mountain pea

Cast you line in a quiet stream, we’ll go fishin in our dreams,              

we’ll go fishin in our dreams, we’ll go fishin in our dreams….  

  

Can't Feel A Thing Ft. Rick del Castillo (Roddan Music B.M.I -2018)

It’s come to my attention that I can’t feel a single thing,

Numb to the touch, ain’t nothing really feels the same,

Strange as it may seem, I can’t feel a single thing…

Stuck a thorn in my finger just to see if I could feel the pain,

Stuck a thorn in my finger just to see if I could feel pain,

Strange as it may seem, I couldn’t feel thing…

I can take a lot of hurtin, I’ve been black and blue,

I can take a lot of hurtin, I’ve been black and blue,

Nothing hurts me more than the way that you treat me like you do…

I can take a lot of hurtin, You know I’ve been black and blue,

Like a thorn in my side, you’ve taking me for a rid

Nothing hurts me more than the way you abuse my pride…

Stuck a thorn in my finger to see if I could feel the pain,

Like a needle in a vein, your love causes so much pain,

But nothing hurts me more than the way that you treat me like you do,

Strange as it may seem, strange as it may seem, strange as it may seem,

I can’t feel thing…

Bleed Ft. Gina Chavez (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

You looked me in the eye, I believed the lie,

Said I was all you’d ever need

Piece of my heart I see your disguise, saying love would never die

Longing desires, a game to us all, not so sweet when it’s you that takes the fall

Blind ambition plants an ugly seed, Can’t you see, oh can’t you see?

It’s your love that makes me bleed

Life’s not easy, but the truth could set you free

Whatever happened to you and me

Like a razor, to my skin, knife to my heart, that’s the hurting part

Can’t you see, oh can’t you see

It’s your love that makes me bleed

Longing desires a game to us all, not so sweet when it’s you that takes the fall

Blind ambition plants an ugly seed, that’s why, why we bleed

Can’t you see, oh can’t you see

It’s your love that makes me bleed

Like a razor, to my skin, knife to my heart

That’s the hurting part

Can’t you see, oh can’t you see

It’s your love, that makes me bleed

That’s why, why we bleed, that’s why, why we bleed, that’s why, why we bleed…

Exit 38 (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

Looking out the window as far as I can see,

She was a temptress wild and free

Blue eyes green trees I see endlessly, that girl she really meant a lot to me

Rollin east, highway I-ninety

Burning desire in our eyes, that girl she really knew how to fly

Blonde hair with a smile that kills, I was hoping for more than a thrill

Should’ve known better than to pull off the road

Oh that girl she was ready to go, lord forgive us for our mistake

Pulling off of exit I-38

Burning desire in our eyes, that girl she really knew how to fly

Loved each other for all the wrong reasons, lord knows I ain’t no angel

Please forgive me, but what a fun mistake, pulling out on exit I-38

Should’ve known better than to pull off the road

Oh that girl she was ready to go, lord forgive us for our mistake

Pulling off of exit I-38, Pulling off of exit I-38, Pulling off of exit I-38

Empty Miles (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

She used to look at him with that smile, and pretty green eyes

They’d talk late at night about life, and all its trials

Told her he loved her like an angel child, now he’d do anything again to see her smile

Now he walks empty miles, now he walks empty miles

They met at a party, an old run down house

He spilled his beer on her pretty, pretty white blouse

She loved the way he looked into her eyes, promised each other they’d never say goodbye

Now she walks empty miles, now he walks empty miles

She cries alone in her pain, innocent love it’s now in vain

Now she walks empty miles, now he talks without a smile, now they walk empty miles

Pretends he loves another one, he lied when he said it’d never be undone

Through many days, and all of life’s trials, they’d think of each other every once in a while

Forgiveness became their cross to bear, playing love like truth or dare

Now she walks empty miles, now he talks without a smile, now they walk empty miles

Now she walks empty miles, now he talks empty miles, now they walk empty miles

Far Away (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Talking to a friend just the other day, she lost her son on a highway far away

Change is the one thing that stays the same, please help me Lord on my way

She said, he’s not gone he’s just far away and we’ll be together again on some sunny day

He’s not gone he’s just flown away, and we’ll be together again, some sunny day

She’s a beauty she shines in the sun, how I loved to see that girl run

Things they change life’s just that way, you know I miss that girl most everyday

She said, she’s not gone, she’s just far away, and you’ll be together again, on some sunny day

She’s not gone she’s just flown away and we’ll be together again, on some sunny day

Only change stays the same, please help us Lord on our way

He said well I’m not gone you’re just far away, and we’ve been together every day

He’s not gone he’s just flown away, and we’ll be together again, some sunny day

I Can’t See (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

When my mind finally clears, that’s when all the thoughts rush in

The day’s been short and the nights way too long, that’s when I think of what might have been

I always feel so insecure, bittersweet love that’s just not there

Is this what I deserve, I guess it’s all just beautifully unfair

Living in a world of make believe, eyes wide open but I can’t see

Trying to be what I can’t be, trying to see what I can’t see.

Tell me…tell me…, what I can’t see

Living in a world of make believe, eyes wide open but I can’t see

Trying to be what I can’t be, trying to see what I can’t see.

Tell me…….. tell me……… what I can’t see

Trying to live with what I can’t be, living in a world of make believe

Just trying to live with what I don’t see, trying to love with what I can’t love

Trying to see what I don’t see, just trying to live, live and be free

Same Conversation (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

It’s been awhile my old friend, more time than I’d ever dreamt

Seems we picked up where we left, talk of time and where it went

It’s a new old feeling, thinking of you, it’s melancholy déjà vu

It’s the same conversation just another day

Time stands still then it slips away

It’s the mystery of life in which we play

It’s the same conversation just another day

Seems like yesterday those dancin’ days, sunny California rays

Reckless dare of our youth, Swing concerts drinking booze

Sabbath, Bowie, Humble Pie, the Deepest Purple and getting high

It’s the same conversation just another day

Time stands still then it slips away

It’s the mystery of life in which we play

It’s the same conversation just another day

Looking back on those bygone days, summer nights in a California haze

Take me back to the past, the future’s cast but nothing lasts

Memories after so much time, glad you’re still a friend of mine

It’s the same conversation just another day

Time stands still then it slips away

It’s the mystery of life in which we play

It’s the same conversation just another day

It’s the same conversation just another day

Crossroad Dues Ft. Rick Del Castillo-Lead Guitar (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Temptation got the best of me, looks like it’s just my destiny

Devil’s got me running he’s hot on my track, got one eye forward and one looking back

Showing me the way that I’m destined to roll, the devil says he can lighten my load

Says he’ll pull some strings down at the crossroads

Playing my heart with worn out parts, paying my respects and singing the blues

Lord have mercy on my soul, making deals for rock n roll

Paying my crossroads dues

Lord I’ve been lost and I’ve been found, but I can’t find me no grace around

Show me the way I think I’m going down, need me a tune with that crying sound

Playing my heart with worn out parts, paying my respects and singing the blues

Lord have mercy on my soul, making deals for rock n roll

Paying my crossroads dues

Meet me down on that road tonight, down to the place where you seal it tight

Paying our respects to those before us

Singing the Blues with the Delta ghost chorus

Patty Jean Ft. Phoebe Hunt (Roddan Music B.M.I. 2017)

Many nights at home alone, listening to you on the radio, poignant words, rang through and true…
you picked me up when I was blue, just wanna say…….. Thank you
You sang about growing up in Maine,
The beauty of letting go and letting them fly, oh sometimes…I swore you could just feel my pain…
You picked me up when I was blue… just wanna say….thank you
Patty Jean sing a song for me…
Help me see the world a little differently…
Sometimes I cried, but I learned how to fly…
Patty Jean…. sing a song for me
You sang about Moses, you asked him to part the sea, that’s the song, really stole, stole my heart from me…
Maybe I’ll see you from afar, sitting alone in the corner of a bar, writing another song for the radio….
I’ll tip my head and smile at you, the only girl……….. who could ever get through
Patty Jean sing a song for me, help me see the world a little differently…
I’ll follow the mooon to hear you sing
Patty Jean play a song for me…
Patty Jean sing a song tonight… for me, Patty Jean… won’t you sing a song for me…

Love Horses (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

Little girl, just three years old
Carrying a bucket full of oats
Morning rising, long brown hair,
Raised on a farm with her best friend a mare

She grew up to be a pretty young girl

Riding horses was all her world

Tried to love me for a while

Broken promises, she rode out the miles

She said… Come on and love horses like I do

Their loyal friends, honest and true

Learn to run and fly with the wind

Come on and love horses like I do

Found a poem in a box of her years

Reading those words, they still bring me a tear

So I sing this song for that little cowgirl

She cried… Come on and love horses like I do!

Their loyal friends, honest and true, learn to run and fly with the wind

Come on and love horses like I do, come on and love horses like I do

Come on and love horses like I do, come on and love horses…… like I do

Never Meant To Be (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

Early this morning, you crossed my mind
Felt the pain deep inside

You wept for us, but you never cried

Alone in the dark, you learned to face the lies

Something that I cannot hide, it’s hard to undo tragic lies

Seems some things were never meant to be, that’s what she’ll always be to me

Just a girl who once loved me, that’s what she’ll always mean to me

We were finished from the start   we were two broken hearts

Blind fool, chasing white lines, we both knew it was a matter of time

Life doesn’t have to be so sad, it was a moment on a broken path

Seems some things were never meant to be, that’s what she’ll always be to me

Just a girl who once loved me    that’s what she’ll always mean to me

Seems some things they were, never…… never, meant to be

Seems some things were never meant to be, seems some things were never meant to be

Just a girl who once loved me that’s what she’ll always be to me

I was blind, blind to see, now I know why you needed to be free

Sometimes things are never meant to be, Sometimes things are never meant to be,

Sometimes things are never meant to be

Seems some things they were never…never meant to be

Cross To Bear (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Saw a leaf  blowin’ across the sky, caught it from the corner of my eye

Thinking about the years of my life, uphill battle riddled with strife

Guess it’s just my cross to bear,  guess it’s just, my cross

Mistakes I’ve made people I’ve hurt, long for redemption fistful of dirt

Heard it’s never too late to change your ways, you and I only got a certain amount of days

Guess it’s just my cross to bear choices I’ve made, acts of despair

Guess it’s just my cross to bear, guess it’s just my cross to bear

Second chances few and far between, at least that’s what, what I’ve seen

How can I make you believe, you live your life like you’ve been deceived

Guess it’s just my cross to bear, choices I’ve made, acts of despair

Guess it’s just my cross to bear,  now its my, my cross to wear

Guess it’s just my cross to bear

Guess it’s just…….. my cross

Bitter Pill (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Checkin’ the rear view kickin’ up stones, thinking about our broken home

I waited too long to say goodbye, and now it’s time for me to fly

Stop making me wrong, we both wrote that song, we tried to hang on but that was tragically wrong

Waited too long to say goodbye, and now it’s time for me to fly

I got a dream in my pocket and a song in my head

Learning to live with what you said

No need to call it’s just another fall, I’m learning to swallow a bitter pill

Gave you my love you gave me a thrill, love turned in to such a bitter pill

Now we live apart I guess a fresh start, it only cost us two broken hearts

I love you now and I always will, trying to swallow such a bitter pill

I got a dream in my pocket and a song in my head

Learning to live with what you said

No need to call, it’s just another fall, I’m learning to swallow a bitter pill

I gave you my love you gave me a thrill, love turned in to such a bitter pill

Learning to swallow a bitter pill, love turned in to such a bitter pill

Rains Coming Down (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Can’t hold on for very long, you and I we’ve got to be strong

There’s an old Gospel song says we’re not here long, born unto this world then we’re gone

Don’t look back let’s forget the past, promise this time we’ll try and make it last

I love you now and that’s all that matters, if it don’t stop raining we just might shatter

The rain it keeps coming down, need the clouds to break before I drown

Let’s hold on and try to make it right, you know the rain’s coming down hard tonight

Can’t hold on for very long, you and I we’ve got to be strong

There’s an old Gospel song says we’re not here long, born unto this world then we’re gone

The rain it keeps coming down, I need the clouds to break before I drown

Let’s hold on and try to make it right, you know the rain’s coming down hard tonight

You know the rain’s coming down hard tonight

You know the rain’s coming down hard tonight

Let Love Be Found Ft. Patricia Vonne (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

You don’t see me, look inside your dreams

You’re my angel now, set yourself free

I feel your breath, like a ghost you haunt me

Feels like you’ll always be the man to want me

Let my love be found, I’m starting to go down

You’re my angel come ‘round, let my love be found

Let love be found

You don’t see me, look inside you

I feel your breath, like a ghost you haunt me

We’ll live together forever young

This I promise until I’m gone

Let my love be found, promise we won’t go down

You’re my angel come ‘round, let our love be found

Let my love be found…

Whiskey, Pills, and Pain (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

It might be hard for most to understand, cards that friends and I were dealt our hand

Poison libations used to be so much fun, whiskey and pills that made us run

Give me grace Lord to not feel numb, pills and drink like the barrel of a gun

Burying hurt is hard to sustain drowning in a river, of whiskey, pills and pain

Time has passed like youthful reckless haste, so many years did we waste

Old man time he didn’t cut us no slack, like it or not we can’t get time back

Give me grace Lord to not feel numb, pills and drink like the barrel of a gun

It’s a hard road of intoxication, your soul longs for medication

Burying hurt is hard to sustain, drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain

It’s so hard but we must be strong, that winding road is much too long

Just when you’re feeling oh so low, that’s the time to just let go

It’s a hard road of intoxication, your soul longs for medication

Burying hurt is hard to sustain, drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain

It’s a hard road of intoxication, your soul longs for medication

Burying hurt is hard to sustain, drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain

Drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain

Drowning in a river… of whiskey, pills and pain

Reconciliation (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Got no choice than to look back and see, hearing the voices that came from me

There’s nothing that I need to fight, just admit what’s right

Like a time machine we’re cast in a world where nothing lasts

Like the quiet one he said, all things must pass

It’s a hard road of reconciliation

Swallow your pride and take a hard look inside

Seeing the truth it’s your consolation

Find your peace it’s your reconciliation

Now more alive, I feel it all

It might be a setup for my next fall

Sometimes the hurt is just too much to bear

An unforgiving voice that’s always there

Trying to make sense of the past like a childish dare

It’s a hard road of reconciliation

Swallow your pride and take a hard look inside

Seeing the truth it’s your consolation

Find your peace it’s your reconciliation

Like a time machine we’re cast in a world where nothing lasts

Like the quiet one he said all things must pass

It’s a hard road of reconciliation

Swallow your pride and take a hard look inside

Seeing the truth it’s your consolation

Find your peace it’s your, reconciliation,

Find your peace it’s your reconciliation

Find your peace it’s your reconciliation

Rock My Reggae Bone (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017) 

Got up this morning wrong side of the dead, took a pill for my aching head
Tired of my job, my life and my bills, full moons rising, looking for a thrill

I spoke my mind and said….

Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul

Need a groove to get outta this hole, Rock Rock my Reggae bone

My Rasta party is ready to roll, gonna dance and just let go

Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul

Need a groove to get outta this hole, Rock Rock my Reggae bone

Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul

Rock Rock my Reggae bone, gonna dance and just let go

Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul

Need a groove to get outta this hole, gonna dance and just let go

Sing it loud now…. Rock Rock my Reggae bone wanna feel it way down in my soul

Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it way down in my soul
