    My Favorite Deja Vu shows what Raggedy Edge can be as a quartet, with Dutch Workman handling drums and percussion and John Huston adding bass and keyboards. These two experienced sidemen from Utah bring unplumbed levels of musicianship to the songs of Lynn and Bob, not only a sweet sensation for them, but for listeners as well. The CD starts with another self-analysis by Bob about life from the beginning to the day he met Lynn and looking on into the future of days that promise to be more favorite days to look back on. A little Hawaii rock slides into hardcore country that segues into the irony of Good Woman Blues. Traveling Song showcases Raggedy Edge's propensity to write in the American Standards style, followed by the gentle ode to youth Playground Swings. It's back to the blues and the rocking Push and Pull of Time's acoustic power lead as only Bob can do it to bring this strongest set yet to a close.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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…
10.
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
