Troubled Time Lyrics

Hang Glider

Stepping up to the Cliffside,

Leaping to flight,

The foot-launch it rushes me away,

In the bright sunlight,

Dancing through the sky,

Updrafts provide my glide,

Up in the clouds a-drifting,

My spirits are uplifted.

 

Up with the birds,

Wafting on the breeze,

At a loss for words,

High above the trees,

Brushing mountain peaks,

Flying higher away,

Moving along,

On this hang glider.

 

People running all over,

Through the crazy world,

The sky is so blue and clear here,

Blowing gusts and swirls,

The lands it moves under my wings,

On the wind it’s so peaceful,

No cares or worries up here,

Coming down is my fear.

 

Up with the birds,

Wafting on the breeze,

At a loss for words,

High above the trees,

Brushing mountain peaks,

Flying higher away,

Moving along,

On this hang glider.

 

Sunset it comes so fast,

Descending from the clouds,

Dark silhouettes shadows casting,

The wind crying out loud,

The days in the sky just don’t last,

I wish to live up here,

These wings can fly me away,

Goodbye.

 

Up with the birds,

Wafting on the breeze,

At a loss for words,

High above the trees,

Brushing mountain peaks,

Flying higher away,

Moving along,

On this hang glider.

 

Ghost Towns

We all try to escape the ghost towns in our lives,

Leave em’ all behind like they’re nowhere,

We all try, but the past is dust on the trail,

Of what we call life.

 

Marching through this desolate wasteland,

Broken building torn down by time,

The ashes blowing in the breeze,

Wind whispers the words of the voiceless,

 

We all try to escape the ghost towns in our lives,

Leave em’ all behind like they’re nowhere,

We all try, but the past is dust on the trail,

Of what we call life.

 

The stools are all kicked over,

The bottles are smashed on the floor,

That’s right where she was standing,

When I knew we were no more.

 

We all try to escape the ghost towns in our lives,

Leave em’ all behind like they’re nowhere,

We all try, but the past is dust on the trail,

Of what we call life.

 

Hey my friends listen,

You don’t know what is in store,

When everyone you know is broken,

And you can feel your heart is sore,

 

We all try to escape the ghost towns in our lives,

Leave em’ all behind like they’re nowhere,

We all try, but the past is dust on the trail,

Of what we call life.

 

Step To

Little darling,

What are you doing here?

In the dark of the moonlight,

Dancing under that ol’ red light.

 

Ooo, Why won’t you?

Ooo, Step to.

 

Little darling,

Standing in the doorway,

Lights dancing off of your body,

What are you doing here?

 

Ooo, Why won’t you?

Ooo, Step to.

 

Little darling,

All these lights can’t hide those tears,

Living in bitter darkness,

All alone for all these years.

 

Ooo, Why won’t you?

Ooo, Step to.

 

Little darling,

What are you doing here?

In the dark of the moonlight,

Dancing under that ol’ red light.

 

Ooo, Why won’t you?

Ooo, Step to.

 

 

Busy Streets

When I walk through the busy streets,

Laid down like plastic sheets,

Of the hospital bed downtown,

Swirling traffic makes this sound.

 

Ooo, Then you turn away.

Ooo, what can I say?

There will come a day,

 

Well they are breaking down,

Potholes like scars on the ground,

She watches with eye like diamonds,

Ears attuned to all the sirens,

 

Ooo, Then you turn away.

Ooo, what can I say?

Well I will find you now.

Cause you went away.

 

We were friends,

But like steaming cars we vent,

Walking with our eyes down low,

Don’t know how much longer I can go,

 

Go, then you turn away.

Ooo, what can I say?

I’ll tear down this concrete jungle,

Just to get to you,

Tear it down,

Oh don’t make me turn around.

 

Droning along,

Dream girl just look my way,

I met from across the highway,

But I ran out a minute too soon,

The busy streets divide us,

As I walked out into the road,

There you spotted me as I slowed,

And that car just ran me down.

 

Ooo, Then you turn away.

Ooo, what can I say?

 

Well I will find you now,

Cause you went away,

And I will find,

You someday.

 

 

Dead End

Driving along don’t know where I’m headed,

Cruising around downtown,

Eyes up in the rearview mirror,

And I don’t look down.

 

Cause I’m driving down these

Dead End streets

In my mind.

And you know I’m searching

To where they may lead

Me to.

 

Eyes on the horizon,

And the asphalt ends,

No goals about me,

And no finish line.

 

Cause I’m driving down these

Dead End streets

In my mind.

And you know I’m searching

To where they may lead

Me to.

 

Dark shadows casting,

Lines on the ground,

The sun is setting,

And the darkness surrounds.

 

Cause I’m driving down these

Dead End streets

In my mind.

And you know I’m searching

To where they may lead

Me to.

 

All my thoughts are swirling,

There’s a ditch and a mound,

When I see them blocking my path,

I quickly turn around.

 

Cause I’m driving down these

Dead End streets

In my mind.

And you know I’m searching

To where they may lead

Me to.

 

Goodbye

I never denied,

All the faith in your lies,

Never knowing where you’re coming from,

Or when you have arrived,

I will discover,

And we shall decide,

All I know is that I won’t say

 

Goodbye, to all those nights and weekends,

Goodbye, to all of those long years,

Goodbye, I loved you so dearly,

Goodbye, No I’ll never say goodbye.

 

The truth will soon shine through,

That you have given up hope,

The future all that we want to do,

Are all just fading black.

 

Goodbye, to all those nights and weekends,

Goodbye, to all of those long years,

Goodbye, I loved you so dearly,

Goodbye, No I’ll never say goodbye.

 

Standing around that old dirty gravestone,

Alone in the rain,

Cheeks red-stained,

From all of the pain,

In his bitter heart,

He sobbed so utterly deeply,

And whispered under his breath,

I will, always love you,

But I must say…

 

Goodbye, to all those nights and weekends,

Goodbye, to all of those long years,

Goodbye, I loved you so dearly,

Goodbye, No I’ll never say goodbye
