L.E.E.P.

Well the buildings all were crumbling
The derelicts were mumbling
When the sky it opened up and said hello
And the people all ran screaming
They said there’s no time for dreaming
You best get up and get right out of here
Then elephants stampeded
Armies were defeated
You-know-who began to sing her final song

But I didn’t notice
Oh no I didn’t notice
All I saw was, all I saw was you
Just you
All I saw was you

Oh the wind it started churning
It brought smells of something turning,
The dead began to walk among the dead
Every flower withered plainly
The desert got too rainy
And it flooded every house up to the eves
And then children lost their bonnets
When monsters ran from closets
And boogey men cried out for mommy dear

But I didn’t notice
Oh no I didn’t notice
All I saw was, all I saw was you
Just you
All I saw was you

Then the earth it started quaking
With fires burning, bodies shaking
And meteors just crashing all around
Then the oceans turned to blood
Demons crawled out of the mud
And the prophets smiled and said, ‘oh yes, we knew!’
The masses they all cried out
As the sun began to fade out
And mountains crumbled down into the sea

But I didn’t notice
Oh no I didn’t notice
All I saw was, all I saw was you
Just you
All I saw was you

C
I’ll take a train to the edge of Abilene
Em
Remembering the softest rain
C
Heaven knows it’s not for me
Am
To say your name while whispering
G
But oh, my head is lonely for
Em
A cup of smiles, a mouth to pour
C
An ageless wakin’ of the day
Am
To sit and laugh and fade away

C
‘Cause I can’t find it, though its always its there
Em D
Just like I got a lover, but I don’t know where
Am C
She’s afraid of me but I don’t care
Am
I got one foot floatin’ on the sunny sky
G
One foot planted firmly on my grave

C
Hey yeah, tell you somethin’
Em D
Jesus told me I don’t owe him nothin’
Am
But if you hear her name, sing my song
C
Use it up til its all gone
G
But oh, my head is lonely for
Em
A bowl of tears, a look once more
C
A timeless sleep in dead of night
Am
To lay and slumber mystified

‘Cause I can’t find it, though its always there
I got a lover, but I don’t know where
She’s afraid of me but I don’t care
I got one foot floatin’ on the sunny sky
One foot planted firmly in the air


capo 3

D – D6
I had visions I had dreams and I’m not sure what they mean
‘Cause lately nothing’s really what it seems
D – D6
There were stars up in the sky and all around were fireflies
Then you strolled up and you sat down by my side

Em – G – Bm – A
And you said, “Love don’t cost you nothin’,
just your sanity, if that’s somethin’,
but I’d trade sanity for love ‘bout any day.”

Em – G – Bm – A
“We’re all rootin’ for you, honey
I’d bet all my hard-earned money.”
Then you kissed me and you jumped and skipped away
It was sure nice to have seen you Grandma Jane

I had visions I had dreams and I don’t know what they mean
Lately nothin’ really is just what it seems

You were standing on a hill, then you turned into a quill
And you flew down and you wrote on my blue jeans

And it said, “Why do babies die?
Oh shut up and live your life.
Understanding never stopped a good long cry.”

“So count your blessings ‘stead of sheep
That’s what helped me get to sleep.
You know the world is not your ointment, Mr. Fly.
Nice to see you, honey, don’t forget to write.”

I had visions I had dreams, I think I know now what they mean
‘Cause lately nothing is really what it seems

Last night you came to me and you were standing in tree
And you said, “Climb up, there’s lots of things to see.”

“Kid, sometimes you jump and your floatin’
Sometimes your chute won’t open
Either way you find yourself on solid ground.”

“So take that chance now, baby
don’t wait for sunny skies and maybes.”
Then she pushed me and I woke up with the rain.
It was sure nice to have seen you Grandma Jane


Oh, at last we meet
I’ve chased you for eternity it seems
Strange, to find you here with me
Let’s talk awhile and I don’t care who sees

I’ve heard loving you is something to be cursed
People point and stare they think the worst but we don’t care

So oh, let’s leave them all behind
Where I could just be yours and you’d be mine
And all your friends who come and call
Who only shine for you when darkness falls

Would gaze at us under the bluest skies
Jealous of our happy life
‘Til we’re both forced our separate ways
Send me to day and banish you
To night

Oh, must it go on this way
Why when I fall behind you never wait?
So I’ll sit and count the days
‘Til you come back around again for me

It’s so sad, so sad and so it goes
They think you look more beautiful alone

Oh, it’s the thing they always miss
What we know as true love they call eclipse
Oh, it’s the thing they always miss
What we know as true love they call eclipse


Funny thing occurred to me, that’s always how it starts
Since I was a young boy I’ve always played the part
Everybody tellin’ me who’s right and who’s wrong
But all I want to do is sing my song

People hustlin’ down the street, they’ve got so much to do
Nothin’s ever finished here, nothin’s ever through
No sooner you’ve arrived, now your time is all gone
And all you want to do was sing your song

There’s a story here and it’s too sad to tell
But we all seem to live it, yeah, we live it so well
Everybody says, well it’s the price that you pay
For comin’ to a place where you can’t stay

Once I had a dream, yeah I thought I’d live it too
But a funny thing occurred to me; I wound up just like you
We sat and spent our whole lives afraid and alone
When all we want to do was song our song
Yeah all we want to do is sing our song

So sing a song
Sing a song


Steeple bells are ringing in our small Ohio town
We’ve been out drinking and we’ve closed every bar down
We poured in my pick-up and we pulled up to the church where we will
Lay you down and say good-bye
Speak of memories when we laughed and smiled and sang

Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
It takes you for a ride
Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
And never you’ll arrive

Well I’ve been out walking since the day you went away
I pace ‘round my bedroom ‘cause to sleep it feels so strange
I wait by the mailbox and I hope for word from you and then I
Walk on down to shoot some pool
I spend the whole damn night at your old barstool just sayin’

Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
It takes you for a ride
Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
And never you’ll arrive
With Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
So why should we even try

Well everybody’s walkin’ steady
But oh no I can see they’re weary
And do we make it at what we’re chasin’?
You said, “I’ll show you how to count to seven…
It’s one, then two, then three, then four
And five, then six then there’s no more…”

Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
It takes you for a ride
Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
And never you’ll arrive
Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
Your dreams won’t ever rhyme
With Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time
So why should we even try
‘Cause Time, Time, Time, Time, Time, Time…
