Capital B
Excerpts of Lyrics

1st CD -
Staccato Grove

It's a Busy Life

It's a busy life - - livin' day to day
Wakin' up like clockwork
Movin' through your daily broadway play
It's a busy life - - livin' day to day.

It's a busy life - - livin' pay to pay
My money's spread so thin -
- I soon will have no place to stay
It's a busy life - - livin' pay to pay.

I'm On Fire (I Gotta Be Me)

I feel it right here - I'm on fire
You don't know how it feels
To be right underneath the wheels
Of the one you love - the one you love.

I'm no possession - don't bend and shape me
I had my lessons - 'bout first impression
After havin' such a burnin' obsession
It's just a passion - gone out of fashion.

Avalanche

And when the dust is settlin',
I'm down, I'm fallen like a broken tree
Avalanche babe -
That's how you rolled right over me.

Like a tiny creature caught in your torrent -
In the last act of a biblical play
I had no fast flood warning
You very nearly swept me all away.

It's a Strange-Strange World

It's a strange-strange world - that we live in.
What we take for truth - has lately been slippin'.

It's a strange-strange world - that we live in.
To find our faults; 'n our fears - 'n why we're driven.

2nd CD -
Completely Blue for You

Thief of Love

Am I - - / - - am I the thief of love?
Seems like there - - wasn't enough love -
When push come down to shove.

How did - - / - - our love go wrong?
Why don't you - - ever play my songs?
Was it something I couldn't give
... Or was it something I never had at all?

Unfinished Business

Now I got unfinished business
Goin' on in my heart.
If all the feelings get too real...
It helps if you can't feel.

In an old photo album
I got pictures of you.
An old photo and a tear...
Guess I should have a beer

If Hendrix Was a Gambler

I've never been good at blackjack
Or any other games of chance
Like poker or roulette
Like love or romance.

Now my well is very deep ----
'S been filled with misery
Of romance lost and jackpots too
And never time to see.

That Little Voice Inside Me

My baby's gone 'n left me - for another man.
He ain't no better lover.
He's just a better liar than I am.

I should have listened to it - -
That little voice inside me
Said, "Back-off and walk away..."

Ain't Nothin' Else I'd Rather Do

You make me so hot by acting so cool
Buy you your dinner and a pair of shoes too.
Ain't nothin' else I'd rather do.

You know that I love you -
From your tip to your shoes...
Buy you some panties and a lacy bra too.
Ain't nothin' else I'd rather do.
