GETTING OLD  © 2016 TIM CASON       ASCAP


I don't care about growing OLD

Wakin' up early or what time I get home


All I know is the things I'm being told

I just don't understand anymore...


I don't care about gettin' RICH

Got everything I need, still life's a bitch



All I know is the things I'm being told

I just don't understand anymore...


It seems like yesterday, is so far away from it all

And every single day turns to grey...

And fades away.


I don't care about BEING RIGHT

Just ain't got that many dogs left in the fight


All I know is the things I'm being told

I just don't understand anymore...

WITHOUT YOU © 2019 TIM CASON       ASCAP


All the women are finally dancing

Booze flowing, people romancing 

Some of them gonna take their chances

As smooth Libation gently enhances

All the little things I'm tryin' to say

As my band of brothers and sisters sing and play

The song that help take their troubles away

But I'm just tryin' to make it through another day...


Without you...


Every day, a wasted day away from you, I do conclude...


I don't know what I'm trying to say

I just move my fingers and music starts to play

This language of notes I do portray

Simply getting me through another day....


Without you.


Every day, a wasted day away from you, I do conclude...


Now the...

Drinks have spilled and people have chilled

Closing their tab and payin' their bills

Hand in hand, arm in arm they walk out the door

Staff Wiping tables, moppin' the floors

and the band makes their way outside

as Drunken couple  hails a cab for a ride

and after all I just try to hide

The feelings I'm trying to hide --- without you...


Every day, a wasted day

Every day, a wasted day

Every day, a wasted day away from you , I do  conclude...

FAR AWAY  © 2016 TIM CASON       ASCAP


We're all parasites here on the planet

Living here just for the day

Gathering memories and making our way 

To a destiny so far away.


So FAR AWAY that it doesn't exist


We aspire to climb every mountain

Desire to star in the play

But the minutes fall short and as a last resort

We hang on for just one more day


Oh, some day

So FAR AWAY that it doesn't exist


I climbed that mountain, just to see you smile

But when I arrived there you'd been gone for a while

How was I to know that your heart had moved away.

But I keep on climbing so FAR AWAY


The mystery is what keeps us moving

Our conscience kicks us to shame

Dismissing shortfalls and limitations

Often misplacing the blame


So FAR AWAY

So FAR AWAY

So FAR AWAY that it doesn't exist.

FROM THE BEGINNING © Gregory Lake.   Emerson, Lake and Palmer

 

There might have been things I missed
But don't be unkind
It don't mean I'm blind

Perhaps there's a thing or two
I think of lying in bed
I shouldn't have said
But there it is


You see, it's all clear
You were meant to be here

From the beginning


Maybe I might have changed
And not been so cruel
Not been such a fool

Whatever was done is done
I just can't recall
It doesn't matter at all


You see, it's all clear
You were meant to be here
From the beginning

14 DAYS  © 2011 TIM CASON       ASCAP


I spent 14 Days in a pickup truck

Sleeping in the backseat I was out of luck

I spent 15 more sleeping on the shore 

Dealing with the crabs crawlin' in my drawers baby,


And I don't know where I'm goin' 

But I damn sure know where I've been


I ain't got that much to figure out

Yeah, since I found you

And you ain't got that much to worry 'bout

Yeah, you got me too


And I don't know where I'm goin' 

And I don't know where I'm goin' 

But I damn sure know...


I spent 14 Days in a pickup truck

Sleeping in the backseat I was out of luck

I spent 15 more sleeping on the shore 

Dealing with the crabs crawlin' in my drawers baby,

And I don't know where I'm goin' 

But I damn sure know where I've been

TEARS TO KEEP ME WARM  © 2013 TIM CASON       ASCAP


Too much water has passed under the bridge

Since the levy let you down

And even the strongest rock can be washed away

When the rain keeps comin' down


And though I try to build a refuge from the storm

Futile as it always proves

Clinging to the tattered clouds of wishful thinking

The Rock erodes and slowly moves...

The Rock erodes and slowly moves


So I hold my head up high

And try to ride the wicked storm

Thinking sometimes I might die

But today I've got my tears to keep me warm


So let go of everything that's lost

The crops that cautiously were sown

Begging for the lightning to strike this withered tree

The vicious rain won't leave alone


Into the mud, the burning branches fall

The mud that drowns even the weeds 

Into the mud a life that once saw everything was beautiful

But now the mud just drowns the seeds,

The mud just drowns the seeds.


So I hold my head up high

And try to ride the wicked storm

Wishing sometimes I might die

But today I've got my tears to keep me warm


They say a rainbow follows every wicked storm

As the clouds slowly drift away

The strongest rays of the sun so bright and warm

But all I see is rain today

All I see is rain today


So I hold my head up high

And try to ride the wicked storm

Knowing someday I will die

But today I've got my tears to keep me warm

Today I've got my tears to keep me warm

Today I've got my tears to keep me warm

FALLING BEHIND © 2009 TIM CASON       ASCAP

Your lovely eyes, they still remember me

Your lonely smile haunts my dreams

Your lonely child still looks at me, knowingly

Knowing you were taken away, taken away from me


Every day you're a little farther away from me

Every night still in my dreams

Every day I fall a little more behind

And I just run away.


Every time I saw your face 

Every time I heard your voice

Every time I knew, Every time I knew I knew ya


Every time I felt your lips

Every time I touched your skin

Every time I knew, Every time I knew I knew ya


Every time I hurt your heart

Every time I fell apart

Every time I knew, Every time I knew I knew ya


Every time you walked away

Every time you turned away

Every time you know, you know you took a piece of me yeah,

You took a piece of me

You took a piece of me

You took a piece of me...


Every day you're a little farther away from me

Every night still in my dreams

Every day I fall a little more behind

And I just run away.


Your lovely eyes, they'd still remember me

Your lonely smile will always haunt my dreams

Your lonely child will look to me, knowingly

Knowing you were taken away, taken away from me...


Every day you're a little farther away from me

Every night still in my dreams

Every day I fall a little more behind

And I just run away.
