Do You Know Me Maria Lyrics by Rod McKuen Do you know me Maria I was the one in the window who smiled I was caught in the crowds eye, and held in yours for a while Chorus: Then the sun went down and the sun came up we spoken once in silence that should of been enough Do you know me Maria I was the one in the doorway who laughed I was the one running after you for more than a mile and a half Do you know me Maria I was the one in the distance who cried I was left all alone by the highway and the highway is empty and its wide

Oversight 04:19
Oversight by Derek Gavey In the morning, in the evening and in the afternoon I'm thinking red thoughts, I'm dreaming green ones I'm making my self blue We fall in line, in line we fall, every time. Hey mister dealer, deal me a good hand it's almost closing time. I played my hands well but in the end it's fate that rolls that die. In god we trust, we trust in god, too much. Chorus: So many nights I've lost my mind, intentions only to unwind, so take my hand and lead me home. Tuck me in and kiss goodnight, forgive me for me dim(pale)(weak) eye sight, you see I'm blind and need your over sight. I've teased the devil, I've praised the pastor, I've suffered through my sin I've lost my conscience, please help me find it, or just pass me some gin So drink for me, I'll drink till you depart. (escape) So raise your drink, your drinks are raised in vain. In the morning, in the evening and in the afternoon I'm thinking red thoughts, I'm dreaming green ones I'm making my self blue I've crossed the line, our lines are crossed…

Restless Wind Just another sleepless night, listening to the drunks outside as they make their way back home Something bout this cityscape always keeping we awake in it's sodium after glow I wish I was a country boy where the only background noise are the coyotes singing out Chorus: The Shadows the shapes, the silent hearts break as the skyline it fades into the night There used to be plains but now all that remains, is this western wind This restless western wind. You drew me into your front door, with promises of jobs and more, but your kisses smother me. I'm gonna make my great escape leave behind the plans I made and just drive myself to sleep I take another look outside into another waning night and the glow of the coming day The Shadows the shapes, the silent hearts break as the skyline it fades into the night There used to be plains but now all that remains, is this western wind This restless western wind. The city wakes from broken sleep, as sunny finger slowly creep up the trunks of the concrete trees. There's something in her subtle sway as she wakes to sunny days and I know I can never leave Just another sleepless night, watching all the folks outside as they greet the coming day. The Shadows the shapes, the silent hearts break as the skyline it fades into the night There used to be plains but now all that remains, is this western wind This restless western wind.

Forget Me Not by Derek Gavey The tiny seeds of discontent they grew each day to represent a bitter life that had been spent in absence of the sun in absence of the sun Who will stay and tend the weeds he shouted at her summer dress as it fluttered off his pleas and strolled towards the sun and strolled towards the sun Chours The Dandelions roared today You morning glories on her way as ivy begged her to stay I'm sure you will forget me not I'm sure you will forget me not The humid haze of summers heat did help her warm her stone cold feet a waves did roll up from the street she strolled towards the sun she strolled towards the sun

Whisper your name by Derek Gavey The empty trees want to hold you again. They reach out their limbs and beckon you back With withered old faces like little old men They open their arms and whisper your name. Chorus: In the street they whisper your name After dark they whisper your name Over and over and over again In the pouring rain they whisper your name The Wind remembers  teasing your hair Brushing it gently out of your face Kissing your neck with summers embrace Now the wind just whispers your name Chorus In the street he whispers your name After dark he whispers your name Over and over and over again In the pouring rain he whispers your name I am the wind and I am the trees And I am the warm in the summer breeze But I don't whisper your name anymore I shout it out with a thunder roar Chorus: In the street I shout out your name After dark I shout out your name Over and over and over again In the pouring rain I shout it out completely in vain You may hear it some day, when I whisper your name

Tomorrow 03:36
Tomorrow by Derek Gavey There's always tomorrow, perhaps with no sorrow maybe there's a way we can start over again. There's always a next time, there's always more blue skies I think there's a way we can find our love again. Laying flowers on your door step It's like a funeral for all my argument regrets It's no that it's all bad, everything we had I'm just grieving for everything that might have been. There's always tomorrow, perhaps with no sorrow maybe there's a way we can start over again. There's always a next time, there's always more blue skies I think there's a way we can find our love again. Fighting cold wars in the bedroom, nobody's talking, but they'll be no sleep here tonight. Perhaps if we got mad, revealed the cards we have Then our people could embrace again as they unite with tears streaming down there face, though I can paint that place, but the wall still stands growing grey across the land There's always tomorrow, perhaps with no sorrow maybe there's a way we can start over again. There's always a next time, there's always more blue skies I think there's a way we can find our love again. I know there's a way we can find our love again.
