Mahalo Maui

[Verse 1]
Too many irons in the fire
Too many passions that inspire
My life was a wipeout
Sometimes it's a mystery
How some things come about

[Chorus]
Mahalo Maui
Your atmosphere is so good for me
Hanging ten with the untamed sea
More refreshing than the shade from a tree
Mahalo Maui
For your contagious personality
Has suppressed my life's formalities
No time for responsibilities

[Verse 2]
Unnecessary repetition
Can easily blind your ambition
Stay in the lines, you'll drown
It's hard enough to face the world
When the rough waves force you down

[Chorus]
Mahalo Maui
Your atmosphere is so good for me
Hanging ten with the untamed sea
More refreshing than the shade from a tree
Mahalo Maui
For your contagious personality
Has suppressed my life's formalities
No time for responsibilities

[Bridge]
Living in the sunshine
Drinking in the wild air
There's no need to run away
When you're already there

[Verse 3]
Don't succumb to imitation
Being defined by desperation
Nothing but good vibes here
Who's to say I can't do all I can
To make my nightmares disappear?

[Chorus]
Mahalo Maui
Your atmosphere is so good for me
Hanging ten with the untamed sea
More refreshing than the shade from a tree
Mahalo Maui
For your contagious personality
Has suppressed my life's formalities
No time for responsibilities

[Chorus]
Mahalo Maui
Your atmosphere is so good for me
Hanging ten with the untamed sea
More refreshing than the shade from a tree
Mahalo Maui
For your contagious personality
Has suppressed my life's formalities
No time for responsibilities

Making Waves

[Verse 1]
Sleep in the sun, play in the moonlight
Dance with someone, and let my love light
Shine until dawn, no better way of
Making waves with you
Buttermilk skies, blueberry pancakes
Signify what a difference time makes
All in good rhyme, no better way of
Making waves with you

[Verse 2]
Perfectly good, wonderfully bad
Knowing I could be, the reason you're mad
You live and learn, no better way of
Making waves with you
Keep to myself, no explanation
Heart on a shelf, masking frustration
Strange masquerade, no better way of
Making waves with you

[Bridge]
Endless maze, constant daze
Latest phase, making waves
Early days, wicked ways
Modern craze, making waves

[Verse 3]
Rebel disguise, you can't ignore it
Little white lies, they're not deliberate
The list goes on, no better way of
Making waves with you

[Outro]
Making waves with you
Making waves with you

Mar Caribe

[Verse 1]
He came down from Montana
Looking for a better way
All he ever found was trouble
But that never kept him away
He hitched a ride from several truckers
Through various Tornado Alley towns
But he wouldn't change this for the world
Even though it's had its ups and downs

[Chorus]
Mar Caribe, Havana Town
In a tiny turquoise shack down by the sea
Mar Caribe, I'll call you home
In this world, there isn't any better place for me

[Verse 2]
He worked his way down to Miami
Borrowed a boat out of Key Biscayne
From an old friend who owed him money
It's probably best not to explain
He made it in no time to Key Largo
But had no intention of staying in the Keys
For there he found a treetop flyer
Who would smuggle him into the Pearl of the Antilles

[Chorus]
Mar Caribe, Havana Town
In a tiny turquoise shack down by the sea
Mar Caribe, I'll call you home
In this world, there isn't any better place for me

[Bridge]
The more he thought about that forbidden island
The more he longed to go
And it was so much nicer than what he saw
On the late night TV show

[Verse 3]
Two weeks and two days crept by slowly
His journey finally came to an end
He had finally found a home he's always dreamt of
And there the rest of his life he would spend
He had absolutely no regrets from leaving
Montana always did give him the blues
Cold weather digs its way down to the bones
But now he could walk the beach without his shoes

[Chorus]
Mar Caribe, Havana Town
In a tiny turquoise shack down by the sea
Mar Caribe, I'll call you home
In this world, there isn't any better place for me

[Chorus]
Mar Caribe, Havana Town
In a tiny turquoise shack down by the sea
Mar Caribe, I'll call you home
In this world, there isn't any better place for me

Mirrors and Smoke

[Verse 1]
He's far from just another
Tired face in the crowd
Mostly everybody else
Has their head up in the clouds
The lights from the cityscape
Bounce off the falling rain
As he walks down the alley
You can hardly hear him complain

[Chorus]
If you think he's gonna stop
You've got another thing coming
A celebrated showman
Never ceases to amaze
Stranger things have happened
Better days are in the cards
Shuffle the deck and go for broke
It's all mirrors and smoke

[Verse 2]
He used to be somebody
Someone people knew quite well
He could make you adore him
Place you under his spell
Now he's run out of gusto
No more tricks up his sleeve
Once a powerful wizard
Though now it's hard to believe

[Chorus]
If you think he's gonna stop
You've got another thing coming
A celebrated showman
Never ceases to amaze
Stranger things have happened
Better days are in the cards
Shuffle the deck and go for broke
It's all mirrors and smoke

[Verse 3]
As a young charmer of wit
He'd leave his audience aghast
Abracadabra now
He is knee deep in the past
To the untrained naked eye
He's much the same as me or you
But with a simple sleight of hand
You may rethink your point of view

[Chorus]
If you think he's gonna stop
You've got another thing coming
A celebrated showman
Never ceases to amaze
Stranger things have happened
Better days are in the cards
Shuffle the deck and go for broke
It's all mirrors and smoke

[Chorus]
If you think he's gonna stop
You've got another thing coming
A celebrated showman
Never ceases to amaze
Stranger things have happened
Better days are in the cards
Shuffle the deck and go for broke
It's all mirrors and smoke

[Outro]
A thorough check shows your heart has broke
Your life's a wreck, but it's all a joke
It's all mirrors and smoke
It's all mirrors and smoke

Moon Child

[Verse 1]
I can see your story in your eyes
You shake the stardust from your hair
Not a big surprise
You count the stars to fall asleep
Lightning courses through your veins
And it sure runs deep

[Pre-Chorus]
Have you ever been hurt by the moon
But still loved by the stars?

[Chorus]
Leave me lonely, leave me wild
Leave me awestruck for a while
Leave me loved, and leave me be
Follow the moon and you'll always be free
Moon Child

[Verse 2]
I can see the devil in your eyes
You expected me to be fooled
By your disguise
Your fire's burning bright within
You're night and I'm day
And we are guilty as sin

[Pre-Chorus]
Your fire lights my way
Separates night from day

[Chorus]
Leave me lonely, leave me wild
Leave me awestruck for a while
Leave me loved, and leave me be
Follow the moon and you'll always be free
Moon Child

[Chorus]
Leave me lonely, leave me wild
Leave me awestruck for a while
Leave me loved, and leave me be
Follow the moon and you'll always be free
Moon Child

[Outro]

Mullet Men Are Fishing

[Verse 1]
Sun’s going down over Matlacha
It’s looking like the end of a beautiful day
The sky’s turning pink, birds fly overhead
It’s early to rise, and early to bed

[Chorus]
‘Cause the mullet men are fishing
Off the old Pine Island shore
When the fishermen are finished
They meet up at old Bert’s Bar
There’s little children fishing
Off the bridge in Matlacha
Mimicking the mullet men
They wanna be like them someday

[Verse 2]
As the fishermen come home with their catch in bay
Another beautiful Florida day
The weatherman is calling for storms to come
Just double up the lines and drink some rum

[Chorus]
‘Cause the mullet men are fishing
Off the old Pine Island shore
When the fishermen are finished
They meet up at old Bert’s Bar
There’s little children fishing
Off the bridge in Matlacha
Mimicking the mullet men
They wanna be like them someday

[Verse 3]
Shrimpers going crazy in Matlacha
There’s a hurricane blowing, and coming their way
Everyone is helping each other out
In Matlacha that’s what it’s all about

[Chorus]
‘Cause the mullet men are fishing
Off the old Pine Island shore
When the fishermen are finished
They meet up at old Bert’s Bar
There’s little children fishing
Off the bridge in Matlacha
Mimicking the mullet men
They wanna be like them someday

[Chorus]
‘Cause the mullet men are fishing
Off the old Pine Island shore
When the fishermen are finished
They meet up at old Bert’s Bar
There’s little children fishing
Off the bridge in Matlacha
Mimicking the mullet men
They wanna be like them someday

[Outro]
Mimicking the mullet men
They wanna be like them someday
Mimicking the mullet men
They wanna be like them someday

My Lucky Star

[Verse 1]
It's just another day
Nothing goes as planned
But I'm used to that by now
I roll with the punches
I get knocked down
Yet I still take my bow
Once upon a time
Before I met you
I would've lost control
Following my mind
Instead of my heart
The very same one that you stole

[Chorus]
The morning star
Could never shine as bright as you
Come as you are
No one else compares to you
We'll go far
Farther than we ever hoped to
Don't you know that you are
My lucky star

[Verse 2]
I don't remember when
I didn't notice
All I know is my love grew
Now you're the part of me
I will always need
And you came as if on cue
You crept up on me
Tore through my walls
Finally tasted love so true
And I never thought
I could feel this way
Now it all revolves around you

[Bridge]
You raise me up off of the ground
With this familiar face I've found
A saving grace I never knew
Now I want to prove it to you

[Chorus]
The morning star
Could never shine as bright as you
Come as you are
No one else compares to you
We'll go far
Farther than we ever hoped to

[Outro]
Don't you know that you are
Don't you know that you are
Don't you know that you are
My lucky star

My Oh My

[Verse 1]
Sitting across from him in the cafe
She was his last resort
Her words kept short
"I wouldn't pry but you look quite dazed
Won't you confide in me
Who you want to be?"

[Chorus]
And he starts to wonder why
He's never walked on the wild side
Never swam through the riptide
Marching through life camera-shy
My oh my, think about the possibilities
If you took responsibility
For the fire dancing in your eyes

[Verse 2]
Her words danced into his heart
"Perhaps you fear
Where to go from here
Break free into the other side
Live the life you crave
Where the roads aren't paved."

[Chorus]
And he starts to wonder why
He's never walked on the wild side
Never swam through the riptide
Marching through life camera-shy
My oh my, think about the possibilities
If you took responsibility
For the fire dancing in your eyes

[Bridge]
Never walked through the park
Never swam in the sea
Never carved our initials in a large oak tree
Yeah you get what you give
And you give what you get
No I didn't believe in magic before we met
Waiting's a mistake
Wake up and live
Open up your mind, forget, forgive
Look into the mirror
You're a broken record
Won't you step into the strange before we hit our last chord?

[Verse 3]
She paid their tab and she said farewell
Leaving him lost in thought
Watching the coffeepot
It had been just another day
Drawn in black and white
No color in sight

[Chorus]
Now he starts to wonder why
He's never walked on the wild side
Never swam through the riptide
Marching through life camera-shy
My oh my, think about the possibilities
If you took responsibility
For the fire dancing in your eyes

[Chorus]
And he starts to wonder why
He's never walked on the wild side
Never swam through the riptide
Marching through life camera-shy
My oh my, think about the possibilities
If you took responsibility
For the fire dancing in your eyes

My Zydeco King

[Verse 1]
He's been out all night
A dancing machine
Having the time of his life
Except not with me

[Chorus]
My my zydeco king
My my zydeco king
Got my heart on a string
My my my zydeco king

[Verse 2]
That squeeze box sound
Drives him wild
Makes him groove
Makes him smile

[Chorus]
My my zydeco king
My my zydeco king
Got my heart on a string
My my my zydeco king

[Verse 3]
Do you know
How long it's been
Since I've held
Since I've seen

[Chorus]
My my zydeco king
My my zydeco king
Got my heart on a string
My my my zydeco king

[Verse 4]
Sinners and saints
French Quarter way
Down Bourbon Street
He's walking my way

[Chorus]
My my zydeco king
My my zydeco king
He's a spicy thing
My my my zydeco king

[Chorus]
My my zydeco king
My my zydeco king
Got my heart on a string
My my my zydeco king

[Outro]
My my my zydeco king
Whoo!

Never Stop Loving You

[Verse 1]
She wore his compliments, like pearls around her neck
She’d done a decent job, of keeping him in check
She knew the time would come, no this she couldn’t control
Familiarity does take its toll

[Refrain]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 2]
She takes her diamonds rough, and likes her music old
She takes comfort in the chaos, so I’m told
You better watch out boy, ‘cause she’s walking your way
And you better believe she’s here to stay

[Refrain]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

[Chorus]
Step by step
She becomes starry-eyed
Day by day
You keep her smiling wide
Piece by piece
Nobody makes her feel like you do
She’ll never
Never stop
Never stop loving you

[Refrain]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 3]
He’s the oasis in the desert of her soul
His very essence makes her lose complete control
His voice reverberates, loudest sound inside her head
Somehow she hears all the things he’s left unsaid

[Refrain]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

[Chorus]
Step by step
She becomes starry-eyed
Day by day
You keep her smiling wide
Piece by piece
Nobody makes her feel like you do
She’ll never
Never stop
Never stop loving you

[Outro]
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Never stop loving you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Never stop loving you
Never stop loving you

No Time To Waste

[Verse 1]
Wake up, and you’ll be greeted by a brand new day
Your future’s bright enough to glisten dare I say
On the spur of the moment opportunities arise
You need to grab life by the horns and hold on for the ride

[Chorus]
'Cause there’s no time to waste
When there’s so much to do
Don’t hesitate
You haven’t got a clue
Be the rebel, be the saint
Who lives to show lack of restraint
Don’t sleep the day away, pull on your shoes
‘Cause there’s too much to do

[Verse 2]
Dive in, and you will finally think outside the box
Make it happen even if you’re slightly unorthodox
But that’s what makes the things you do extraordinary you see
Full speed ahead you won’t regret of this I guarantee

[Chorus]
'Cause there’s no time to waste
When there’s so much to do
Don’t hesitate
You haven’t got a clue
Be the rebel, be the saint
Who lives to show lack of restraint
Don’t sleep the day away, pull on your shoes
‘Cause there’s too much to do

[Bridge]
I hit the ground running
So much to do and so little time
By the time I catch up
They’ll have finally caught me for my crime

[Chorus]
'Cause there’s no time to waste
When there’s so much to do
Don’t hesitate
You haven’t got a clue
Be the rebel, be the saint
Who lives to show lack of restraint
Don’t sleep the day away, pull on your shoes

[Chorus]
'Cause there’s no time to waste
When there’s so much to do
Don’t hesitate
You haven’t got a clue
Be the rebel, be the saint
Who lives to show lack of restraint
Don’t sleep the day away, pull on your shoes
‘Cause there’s too much to do

Nobody Knows

[Verse 1]
I’ve been itchin' for time spent my way
But nobody knows
I've been waiting for the sun to come out and play
But still nobody knows

[Pre-Chorus]
Because in the morning
When the darkness clears away
And the silence of the night is led astray

[Chorus]
I sing hey, hey, hey
I wonder if we'll be free like yesterday
'Cause I've got so much left to say
If you're going my way
Yeah I said hey, hey, hey
What is it that makes you want to stay?
'Cause I can't have you run away
And make my clouds all turn gray
But nobody knows

[Verse 2]
My thoughts are all rattled inside my mind
But nobody knows
When I shake them out I never know what I'll find
But still nobody knows

[Pre-Chorus]
Because in the morning
When the darkness clears away
And the silence of the night is led astray

[Chorus]
I sing hey, hey, hey
I wonder if we'll be free like yesterday
'Cause I've got so much left to say
If you're going my way
Yeah I said hey, hey, hey
What is it that makes you want to stay?
'Cause I can't have you run away
And make my clouds all turn gray
But nobody knows

[Outro]
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
