Track Name: My Favorite Déjà Vu
My Favorite Déjà Vu
(Farley & Perdzock)
Been a lot of places in this world
Snow capped mountains ocean pearl
Desert cactus, prairie, beach and field
Met a lot folks along the way
Some couldn't leave, some couldn't stay
With some I had a snack, with some I had a three-course meal

But when you ask me what's My Favorite memory
What's My Favorite thing to do
My Favorite place to be in all this world?
That's right here next to you
'Cause you're My Favorite Déjà Vu

Play a lot of chords on this guitar
Trying to be a rock and roll star
Had a few good times and some train wrecks
Partied too much, drank too hard
Could not handle a business card
In the end, you get what you expect

But when you ask me what's My Favorite memory
What's My Favorite thing to do
My Favorite chords to play on this guitar
Are in this song I sing to you
'Cause you're My Favorite Déjà Vu

Feel like I’ve been everywhere before
Every time I go through one more door
Did I just miss meeting up with you?
And are you having Déjà Vu too?

Filled a lot of pages full of rhyme
Computers work but a pen's just fine
For capturing the thoughts I want to say
Learned that if I leave them on the shelf
Songs won’t ever write themselves
Somebody must shine the light of day

But when you ask me what's My Favorite memory
What’s My Favorite thing to do
I think about the life I’ve lived
And re-imagine it with you
‘Cause you’re My Favorite Déjà Vu
Track Name: Swim to Molokai
Swim to Molokai
(Farley & Perdzock)
He’s an ocean cowboy without a paddle or canoe
It’s a situation that positively makes me blue
His island home is far from mine, if I'm not to be alone tonite
Gotta fight the riptide and Swim to Molokai

Oh my sweet baby he lives there
He knows exactly why I dare
For his love I challenge sea and sky
Fightin’ the riptide to Swim to Molokai

Campfire, the moon, and my ukulele
Only thing missing is hugging and kissing from my baby
Ocean prairie's deep and wide
I always get a stitch in my side
When I'm fight the riptide to Swim to Molokai

If you've been there you know why I'm so fond of
A little bit of sand and a whole lot of wild blue yonder
He's an island boy, the real McCoy
My heart's tsunami, fills me with joy
So I’ll fight the riptide and Swim to Molokai
Track Name: Take It From Me
Take It From Me
(Farley & Perdzock)
I don't want you to go but I want you to know
That I hope you're doing okay. And you've got a right
To set your sights on that big loving pay day
And if you can’t commit, I’ll get over it, and learn to be single again
But if hugs and a smile, never go out of style
We’re gonna be more than friends

Take It From Me, take me for what I am
Take it for free, in your way I won't stand
You're going to see what kind of man you make me into
Forever's a long time, but if you got a minute
I've got a half a mind, and you're all that's in it
Would you be so inclined to want to spend it
Just me and you

Now you've come home, and you want time alone
Every now and then that's ok, I've been that way too
But not so much with you, That's why it's easy to stay
You got to know that I’ve got to go for the fairytale storybook end
With the hugs and the laughter and the forever after
And here’s where the story be gins

Forever’s a long time, but if you got a minute
I’ve got a half a mind and you’re all that’s in it
Would you be so inclined to want to spend it just me and you
Just me and you
Track Name: Break My Heart
Break My Heart
(Farley and Perdzock)
I wish I could love you, I wish I could say
That I'm all about you, but baby that ain't the way
I feel in my heart, I feel in my soul
Baby, there's somebody else I've got in control
I don't want to hurt you, I don't want you to cry
But if that's what it takes to make you say good-bye
Go ahead and break your heart
Go ahead and tear it all apart
Go ahead and break your heart, and toss it away

I wish you could love me, I wish you could say
That you're all about me, And that would be the way
You feel in your heart, you feel in your soul
Why you looking right through me like that? You don’t have to be so cold
I don't want hurt, I sure don't want to cry
But if that's what it takes to keep you by my side
Go ahead and break my heart
Go ahead and tear it all apart
Go ahead and break my heart, and toss it away

When somebody takes your love and tears it all apart
Clean it up, wrap it up, let the healing start
Don't be too concerned, you’re gonna feel a little smart
When you rip the bandage off your unrequited broken heart
And toss it away

I wish I could love you, I wish you could love me
Wish that we could hurry up and get where we want to be
Feel it in our hearts, feel it in our souls
Feel like we can live without somebody else in control
We don't want to hurt, and we don't want to cry
But if we got to get on the spot and give it another try
Let's go ahead and break some hearts
Go ahead and tear them all apart
All at once or a la carte
And toss'em away
Track Name: If It Were Up To Me
If It Were Up To Me
(Farley & Perdzock)
Night winds tap dancing through the chimes
Music to the moon and stars that I’m
Hearing on the breeze tonight
All alone with a thousand stars
Wondering where in the world you are
And when I’ll be back by your side

If It Were Up To Me, we’d dance in the moonlight
If It Were Up To Me, we’d walk by the sea
If It Were Up To Me, we’d sing the song right
Through the night, If It Were Up To Me

How many hours till sun a-rising
Keeping my gaze on the far horizon
Milky Way breaking through the sky
Palm trees swaying, surf is breaking
You’re not feeling how my heart is aching
Since we said good-bye

When you’re out in the night with the moon shining bright into your eyes
Feel the world spinning round turning you around to the sunrise
Such a warm summer breeze to feel on the beach in the midnight
Floating over the waves just out of reach of the morning light
Track Name: Good Woman Blues
Good Woman Blues
(Farley & Perdzock)
My baby says she loves me
but I been gone since way back when
My baby says she loves me
but I been gone since way back when
She wanna give me kisses
but she don't know where in the world I am

I got the Good Woman Blues, she's the only one I'm thinking of
I got the Good Woman Blues, she's the only one I'm thinking of
She wraps her arms around me, I'm like a hand inside a velvet glove

When I go to play around, She won't be found at home waiting for me
When I go to play around, She won't be found at home waiting for me
She come along, sing a song, Bringin' on a high-part harmony

My baby says he loves me but he's been gone since way back when
My baby says he loves me but he's been gone since way back when
He wants to say he loves me but he don't know where in the world I'll be

I got the Good Woman Blues, he's the only one I'm thinking of
I got the Good Woman Blues, he's the only one I'm thinking of
Wanna wrap my arms around him,
Make him like a hand inside a velvet glove

When I go to play around, she won't be found at home waiting for me
When he goes to play around, I won't be found at home waiting, not me
Come along , sing a song, bringin' on a high part harmony

I got the Good Woman Blues, Got the Good Woman Blues
Got the Good Woman Blues, got the Good Woman Blues
Got the Good Woman Blues, she's the only one I'm thinkin of
Track Name: Traveling Song
The Traveling Song
(Farley & Perdzock)
Thinking ‘bout the places that we’ve been and haven’t yet
Some we can’t remember, and some we can’t forget
Some are destinations, others accidents
Some take reservations, others common sense
Traveling to mountain, beach, and town
Wonder if we’ll ever settle down

We can winter camping near the Gulf of Mexico
And summer in Montana till the skies begin to snow
Autumn’s falling leaves will find us someplace close to home
Springtime’s when we like to get into the car and roam

We could take a train to a boardwalk town
We could fly to Vegas lay some money down
Or drive an RV to a mountain top
We could read a book lying on the beach
Till it got too dark for the words to reach
Our eyes and even then we might not stop

We could blast off in a rocket ship to Mars, but it's too far
As well as way too cold, believe me I know how you are
And if we choose to stay on earth, the oxygen is free
As long as you are there, then anywhere’s all right with me
Track Name: Playground Swings
Playground Swings
(Farley)
Life was so much easier
When all I had was you
Those times went by so quickly
I can’t believe they’re through
We learned about the world we had
Sun and moon and sky
Always something else to do
Something new to try (on)

Playground Swings, soccer dates
Amusement parks and new playmates
Time was something we were made to kill
As I look back upon those days
I knew at last they'd go away
But you know I love you that way still

As we have grown to comfort
In a world so full of dreams
Pages turning way too fast
At least that's how it seems
Remember when it took our breath away
To run beside the fountains
Will you hold my hand someday
And think about the mountains (where we played on)

Living every day, thankful for the past
Praying for a future that allows the dreams to last
so we can play on
Track Name: Driving Blind
Driving Blind
(Perdzock)
Caught at the crossroads, I look left and right
No other traffic, no sign in sight
Moon behind thick clouds, impossible to find
I wanna take the right road but I’m drivin’ blind
I wanna take the right road, but I’m drivin’ blind

Broke my glasses; headlights burned out
No one around to hear my shout
Don’t know which way to go, I’m in a bind
I wanna take the right road but I’m drivin’ blind
I wanna take the right road, but I’m drivin’ blind

The pavement’s slick; no lines on the road
Brakes don’t work; I got a heavy load
Pages of my atlas are torn out
The needle of my compass spins around, around, around
It just spins around

Early next morning, sun’s in my eyes
I turn west, improvise
Do the first thing that springs to mind
I wanna take the right road but I’m drivin’ blind
I wanna take the right road, but I’m drivin’ blind Drivin’ blind…
Track Name: Push and Pull of Time
The Push and Pull of Time
(Farley and Perdzock)
Woke up with a symphony laid out in my head
Turned into an ad jingle by the time I got out of bed
I blame procrastination. Do it every day
Put off till tomorrow what I put off yesterday

Yesterday today tomorrow
They're all in your mind
Stuck in the in-betweenness
Of The Push and Pull of Time

Hair like scissors on my pillow, feathering my mind
How is it I give away what was never really mine?
A gift beyond all giving, a dream without a spark
Flashing in the bright light like a mug shot in the dark

There are plans that always work, others best laid fail
We keep coming up with reasons to hit the dusty trail
The moon is up, the stars are out, the owl flies like a cloud
Erasure's not an option when the thoughts are said aloud
