Lyrics

Wherever You Are
By Michael Berns

 

Wherever You Are

The sound will find you near or far Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

The beat of strings mixed with guitar

Wherever You Are

 

So tell me why this all should fade to black

Closing shop after the first act

I am screaming notes up to the skies above

Clouds and all might as well fall down

 

But I think we will both have peace of mind

Knowing that I can hear your voice

And no matter what occurs in time

Just to go on with always

 

Wherever You Are

The sound will find you near or far Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

The beat of strings mixed with guitar

Wherever You Are

 

Been away from any thoughts of you

Out in space sowing a seed or two

And I know it is not exactly fair

My disappearing when I know you care

 

But I think we will both have peace of mind

Knowing that it was both our choice

And no matter what occurs in time

Always still always

 

Wherever You Are

The sound will find you near or far Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

The beat of strings mixed with guitar

 Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

 

Wherever I am

Your voice lifts me out of a jam

Wherever I am

Your sweet hello lends me a hand

Wherever I am

 

I cannot see why this has to fade at all

How are you resting in the dark

As I wrestle with worlds apart

Worlds that used to love where two collide

 

But I will never have peace of mind

Knowing that it was not my choice

And no matter what occurs in time

Just to go on with always

 

Wherever You Are

The sound will find you near or far Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

The beat of strings mixed with guitar

 Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are

Wherever You Are


Across the Land

by Michael Berns

 

Said a prayer across the land

Been searching for a love that's grand

I'll take a stand

On your command

 

Made a call by river's end

The kind you hear back in your den

Been looking hard

To bring again

 

Made our way across the sand

Treasured days we never planned

And jumped across

And hoped to land

 

Said a prayer was hard to see

Been searching for some clarity

With oceans crash

They cover me

 

Earnest little tries

Tell me how you barely feel inside

Play and sing along for me yeah

 

Earnest little tries

Tell me how you barely feel inside

Play and sing along for me yeah

 

Said a prayer across the land

Been searching for a love that's grand

I'll take a stand

On your command

 

Made a call by river's end

The kind you hear back in your den

Been looking hard

To bring again

 

Made our way across the sand

Treasured days we never planned

Jumped across

And hoped to land

 

Said a prayer was hard to see

Been searching for some clarity

With oceans crash

They cover me

 

Earnest little tries

Tell me how you barely feel inside

Play and sing along for me yeah

 

Earnest little tries

Tell me how you barely feel inside

Play and sing along for me yeah


GRAVEL
by Michael Berns

Gravel is falling
On times where we used to be
Still as they glisten
The new sedimentary

To take a chance on us
To take a chance on us now

Seven feet under
The places we used to stand
Toss in the gravel
It's time that we cover them

To take a chance on us
To take a chance on us now

It's hard to leave this all behind
So trust me when there's nothing left to say
A little bit of gravel makes it easier for us to put away
Those memories so steeped in yesterday
Those memories you couldn't run away

Gravel is falling
It hurts but they say it's right
Everyone tells me
Go quietly in the night

To take a chance on us
To take a chance on us now

The buildup is heavy
It's nearing the very top
I'll put down my shovel
Knowing it's time we stop

To take a chance on us
To take a chance on us now

It's hard to leave this all behind
So trust me when there's nothing left to say
A little bit of gravel makes it easier for us to put away
Those memories so steeped in yesterday
Those memories you couldn't run away


Wrong Way

Had to swing low

I'll give you anything

Heard you were low

I'll give you the world for sure

 

This time you're caught up in the numbers

Turn them down cause you're going in the wrong way

 

Too busy you're reaching what is play

I'm on the other side going the song way

 

You're done but the clock's making you stay

You couldn't see that you're going the wrong way.

 

Nobody's caught up in their headphones

I'm on the other side going the song way

 

Come on down to my side

We'll leave all this work behind

Just these these songs keep burning the fire

The right side is here if you can find it

 

A simple ear takes whatever they play

You couldn't hear that you're going the wrong way

 

The stock radio's been ruining your day

I'm on the other side going the song way

 

Somebody paid 'em big pounds for play

You couldn't see that you're going the wrong way

 

Nobody here ever heard of phone

I'm on the other side going the song way

 

Come on down to my side

We'll leave all this work behind

Just these these songs keep burning the fire

The right side is here if you can find it

 

Had to swing low

I'll give you anything

Heard you were low

I'll give you the world for sure

 

Had to swing low

I'll give you anything

Heard you were low

I'll give you the world for sure
