Petesimple Lyrics in no Particular order
Train Station
Blues

by pete

You came into
town

Into my life
again

Through all that we
had been through

Through all those
days that we’ve seen

*Stop dreaming into
me

Stop screaming into
me

Stop believing it’s
always me

You and I will never
tire

The train is here and
my desire

But you just walk on
by

And I just try to
ignore

*

I guess that we’ve
spent our hour

On this dance without
a shout

To continue a life
with me

The dream we’ll never
see

*

To Be
There

by pete

Take a number for
your slumber

And believe in
me

Must you go so
soon?

Must you
dream?

*All for your wanting

All for your
needing

All for your
dreams

To be
there

Blue and the
loneliest number

Fame for your
future

Screaming because the
night

*

Not a latchkey
kid

Not in it for
me

Not in it for
anything other than me

For you
anything

For you
everything

*

There are a million
things I’ve forgotten

There are so many
more to come

So be with me in your
slumber

To
dream

*

Sunny
La

by pete

Time a lot smile a
lot

Trailing spilled
sweet thinking

Not about to turn
sour

Still counting on the
Hour

*Finding Lai’de Lai’de Lai’de da de

Star struck luck from
a knuck

Ledger filled heat
loved

Stopping aloud to
burn flower bright

Still counting on the
hour night

*

Stranger
Things

Andy Kauffman was the
first man to eat green cheese

And Gonzo and Izabel the chicken were not far behind

Yeah yeah

People go crazy about
a sharp dressed man

People go crazy about
Elvis and his blue suede shoes

People go crazy about
Willie and his “Crazy” thing

People go crazy about
the strangest things

People are this way,
Mr. Morrison said, “When you’re a stranger”

Tiny Tim “Tip toed
through the tulips”

What a long strange
trip it’s been

Yeah yeah

People go crazy about
a sharp dressed woman

People go crazy about
Elvis and his blue suede sock

People go crazy about
Willie and his taxation

People go crazy about
the strangest things

Like Mr. Hammer and
his “Folk-Boxing”

People go crazy about
a sharp dressed cat

People go crazy about
Elvis and
Graceland

People go crazy about
Willie and his red bandana

People go crazy about
the strangest things

Song That Mel
Likes

Every now and again
we see eye to eye

Everything else is
just a lie

Now see here, she
exclaimed into the night

Passionate kisses are
all I need tonight

*Right now is the
time; Don’t break my heart

We’ll cross that sea
in due time; Don’t break my heart

Don’t worry we’re
ready; it’s the best place to start

I’m here and I am
steady, So don’t break my heart

She was there on a
Tuesday

And the air was just
right

She said I may have
found it dear

Well I found my
fight

I asked is the
reflection consequence of my action

No not this
time

As she explained to
me, its just a piece of glass

*

Every now and again
we see eye to eye

Everything else is
just a lie

Now see here, she
exclaimed into the night

Passionate kisses are
all I need tonight

Sometimes

by pete

I am listening to
your every word

All I hear is love,
love, love

I’m still going Malatoid

In my arms; Oh, all
for you

*Sometimes in the
middle of the city

Someday in my
dreams

Sometimes out along
the lucid shore

Someday any
day

So dream just a
little

And Fall in my arms a
little while

In and out, in and
out

All for
you

*

Instrumental

*

Rum and Pickle
Juice

(Intro)

*Another day in our
lives

You’ll give it one
more try

So why don’t you try
something new

Like rum and pickle
juice

(Rhyming in
crowd)

*

repeat until bored

(Fin)

Perhaps
Chance

Falling from that
star angel

Wings without two
words

To happen somewhere
in the midst of grey

And choosing
carefully words, words, words

Selling drama to a
carpenter

The lives that we
lead can be simple

Complexities however
is how the beat goes on

Please trade away
these dreams on

*Perhaps chance,
we’ll draw our lives around importance

Living in and on this
little world we live

Perhaps chance,
outside dreams can come true

Baby just me and
you

I look into your
beautiful cat eyes

Losing all that could
be, oh how time flies

Legs locked frozen at
your door

Knowing that you want
to see me once more

*

(b) But Lions will
prevail, in the story that we tell

And which way to the
past please tell me

My wardrobe of
wonderment cannot last

Not That Far (Hey
Song)

by pete

Hey, it’s not that
way

It’s what you do with
it love

And you say, Please

Please don’t you stay

It’s how you use with
it love

It’s not that for
now/song for your love

Hey, what would you say

If I was never
through with your love

You’d say, Please

Please don’t you stay

It’s how you prove
with it love

I don’t mind stealing
time for your love

I don’t mind stealing
time for your love

It’s not that far
now

Hey, it’s how you
say

That I’ll never g’through with your love

And you say, Please

Please don’t you stay

It’s not improved
with your love

I don’t mind stealing
time for your love

I don’t mind stealing
time for your love

It’s not that far
now

Most of the
Time

Tonight is what we
dream is what we say

And not a care in the
world

And all along these
feelings, these feelings

And nothing but this
girl on my mind

*It’s what I think
of

It’s what I need
of

It’s what the time
wants us to believe

The Line has been
crossed most every day

And the best of the
worst part is that you knew

Most of the
time

What I write is what
I feel

It’s a constant
exchange of emotional emotioned thought

Every night a then I
am at your window

My
Julie

My
Juliet

*

Longing

by pete

You asked me to wait
a year for your love

I don’t think I can
wait that long

Longing for a chance
as I drive away

I must ask you to
dance again with me

*I send you this and
you send me that

I miss you this and
you miss me that

I hope for your love
in time

I wish for your love
next time

You asked me for some
advice

And I brought you the
stars for a night

You said “I’ll see
what comes to me love,

But I cannot promise
what you deserve”

*

You never came around
that night

But then again you
never promised me the night

So I’ll be back for
you someday

In the meantime love
I cannot, I will not stay

*

Last Days
Goodbye

by pete

The songs you listen
to are a lot like the ones I write

This one’s no
different no apologies stay the night

Does this mean that
you are leaving soon my friend

Or can I convince you
to stay ’til the end

*These last days
goodbye

And I don’t know, I
don’t know why

But things will work
out alright

Yes things will be
just fine

Varied conversations
we all must have; and the ones we wanted to

Speaking of nothings
of when we’ll meet again

Carpe Notte seize the night

We’ll find ourselves
going on; so I just might but…

*

La La Song

by pete

Not quite
requital

Not quite
right

Sweetly towards
sweetness

Enough is
enough

You’re too far
out

If you make me
wait

You’ll soon find
out

*La La La La

It might as well be
spring

To be out we must
be

Around and outside
looking inside

Again sweetly towards
sweetness

I might, I’ll fight
for it

*

Through These
Words

I had something
really witty, but I don’t remember

That’s been done
before

Just like playing a
six string and

the do wa-ditty-ditty-dum

*Your Hair Your Eyes
your smile

In the
moonlight

In my
dreams

Because I miss
you

And I Kiss you

Through these
words

Not for the faint of
heart they said

So we steal the day
together with

You and me and one
bottle dreaming of

So come sail away
they say with me

How does that work
for the both of us

In the still of the
tender nights with
well what did he say again?
I don’t remember it was something ‘hukuna matata’ like
Or maybe it was You can call me? You can call me Al?
But I was distracted by your

Just In
Case

by pete

These things we are
tailored to do

Feet standing up and
making it far

I will bring water
and your wine

And my picture that I
drew of

*Your hair, your
eyes, your smile

In the
moonlight

So please, and thank
you

Stay just in case
your mind I want to share

With you a failable station to care

Non-consequential
resident affairs

You and me and one
bottle making

*

Just
Because

by pete

How do you see
me?

How do you feel
me?

How do you do the
things which are

*From the outside
looking inside looking all around

I’ll be not safe ’til
you’re around

So take your
time

You need to
find

What you need to
find

*

Just breathe a
little/ to make this go by

I’ll lye around and be, just because

*

I May (just a
little)

by pete

Something to sleep
by

Just for you and all
the stars

Deep diamond pockets
of faith

Many more years to
far to imagine

*So I may, just a
little

Everyday you stay a
little while

And I’ll keep this in
mind

That you’ll always be
mine

So many
times

So little time to be
around you

Scheming is just not
you

Screaming is just not
you

*

Assortment
Assorted

I have nowhere else
to go

The dreams they may
come and they may go

All love stays and
so

*

I Found
Love

Every once and a
while you come around

Then we’re off and we
cannot be found

Useless are the ways
that they think we are

Trading glances only
to look away

*But I found
reluctant love

Not with you but some
other dove

In seclusion
dear

But I will find a
way

Yes and you’ll be
back someday

*Because I found love
when I found you

So we listen to
things if we wanted to

No more tears when I
say these words

Cuz I found love when I found you

I no misgivings or
ways to explain

How you and I would
express these things

But don’t you worry
my friend

It all works out in
the end

*

(b) Don’t look away,
baby, don’t look away

Darling dear are the
only things we should

Tell our… tell you
what

Meet me half
way

And that glorious
day

*

Once in maybe two
lifetimes we’ll up the anti again

Cuz you were my darling and I yours my friend

But don’t you think
perhaps a wink and smile to last the day

That you and I
a-g-a-i-n

Yeah

Hush

by pete

Do you remember the lullaby

That we once
shared

So you see how far it
is to ride

Into that
Sunset

I will not follow
alone

I will not see for it
is gone

I won’t find one way
back to dreaming

*I would walk a
thousand miles

And I would dream a
million dreams

If I could be there
with you

You will
see

Singing, hush little
baby

Don’t you cry I have
a lullaby

Hush little
baby

Don’t you cry

Sinking for a
melody

Pushing up
melancholy

Felling all there is
to you

Meaning I’d not give
up on you

*

Here

Here’s a little story
about you and I

In fact there was
never anything little about it

Yes I am
fine

It’s over please move
on

*One day we’ll not
find love

Someday I’ll not try
up

Does this mean that
we should give up?

No, that one day I’ll
find love

But then there are
apparent lies

Like about you and me
doing fine

But since, of course,
there is no more

And yet life lingers
on and on before…

(bridge) Oh my heart and aching for someone

Leaves trying
hard-out and finding nothing

There will be time to
look back

On time that I had
spent

So at last there’s
time in life

To think about all
the days gone by before

But then you know
it’s my life

So in the end it’s
just goodbye

Heaven With You

You Said I was
drawing a picture in my head of

You were not
fantastical as you once were

Dreaming along those
lines

Of faith to the
heart

Is were it is and it
lies

It
lies

* But you just don’t
know

What effect you have
on heaven

And you just can’t
see

Till its all
beside/behind you there

So close the
door

Until I reach heaven
with you

Until I reach heaven
with you

Along those
lines

Beaconing the
stars

The stars they wish
on your eyes

They say that they
are beautiful

And are the first to
come into view

Wishing on such
beauty

Don’t fade away

For yours are undying

And are lifetimes
away

But are well worth
the evening

The
evening

*

Placing all of me

Why not take a chance
on life

In regards to what
you think could be love

Or interest in the skys above

This will not be
above the yearning curve

And yet again we can
walk along life together

Together

*

Gracefully
Victorian

by pete

Telling tall tales of
Victorian sadness

Never ending in this
story

As I fall from
Grace

The air ascending all
from out to be

*Tearing Tori from the norm

Running through the
weather

Once again from the
storm

Soul stepping
diamonds in the rough

You think your tough

Running through the
weather once again

Missing what I cannot
have

And still searching
for someone

Later times we all
must have

I go on knowing
on

*

Got to Have
it

by devin/pete

Falling down on a
spoon

In the month of
June

Milk is about to
rot

Brown paper bag
spot

*Hot to you cold to
me

And as taste as can
be

Got to have
it

Got to have
it

Lack of words, so I
sat

With that cat and my
hat

Got a box full of
brew

And you can have some
too

*

Need more words to
say

Need less words to spray

Drunk now I must
go

Slow, Slow,
Slow

*

Fate Will Work It
Out

by pete

Did you see the news today

Most all I did not
hear it from you

An angels place to
stand

Fulcrum under
bow

*Wake up your heart
is set in stone

Don’t leave now; no
tomorrow

The time will come
not to worry

Fate will work it
out

Standing in giant
ignorance

The wish, that of
living whole

Your voice most
tender

Speak softly angel
now

*

Pictures on the
wall

Paintings on the
floor

It all seems so
small

So don’t walk
throughout that door

*

Dreams Can Go
Awry

by pete

Once upon in my
dreams

Baby you will
see

I can see you
waking

Coming out to play
with me

*Dreams can go Awry

It can be dishonest
baby

Will you
see?

Does it really happen baby

Sometime you will
see

Time to see if you
can chose

A closer walk with
thee

*

Does it really matter
baby

Kindling hearts will
be

Walking out into the
open air

*

A Story About You

by devin/pete

A story about
you

That I once told
myself

That you were once in
love with me

*In between right and
wrong

Underneath before
long

You’ll find yourself
in need of me

There’s something
about you

That makes me want to
cry for more

Cuz I don’t want to see you torn

*

The things you
do

The things you
say

Make me love in every
single way

The way you
walk

The way you
smile

Make me just love you
and it’s all worth my while

To be with
you

*

And then when I have
you

Back inside my
arms

I’d never let you go
again

*

A story about
you

That I once told
myself

That you were once in
love with me

Your Going Away Gift Because I’m Broke

I lost myself this
time

Somewhere between
here and an ocean

Thinking I was
blind

Somewhere between you
and me

Along the
way

Thinking of
you

I will not stop this
time

She says, You’re always there for me

Well I hope you know
you’re right this time anyway

*Along your way
home

I will stop and think
of you

Along your way
home

I know you’ll stop
and think of me

I think I’ll give it
a try

She says, But there are better things like butterflies and fairytales
through the glass

I think I’ll be
coming home

When the wind begins
to blow for you

*Along my way
home

I will stop and think
of you

Along my way
home

I know you’ll stop
and think of me

Won’t Come
Down

by pete

Do you ever wonder,
the things we cannot see

Where the wild things
are, grow things unimaginable

*I won’t come down
(from here)

This is not for your
edification

Or your personal
faith

I think of it as
magic, but only when you sleep

*

And she wakes, to see
me there

And she wonders,
only

*

Will It All Fall
Down

by pete

Say when will your time come

And how will you get
there

How far does it feel awake

And will you see me
quietly

*Will it all fall
down?

Say when the rain
comes

Will you hold onto
me?

Does vertigo make a
difference?

When you’re with
me

*

Questions in due
time

Ones we won’t want to
say

Then there’s a reason
for all of this

But I’m not certain
you will agree

*

What was it like
before Saturday

I wake up ready for
school, no wait its Saturday

The cartoons I think
I missed

What was life like
before Saturday

I pour the cereal and
milk at the same time

It’s a commercial
about something I’ve not seen sugary

That I must
have

*What was it like
before birthday parties with jungle gyms

When Cartoons were
half my day

*What was it like
before the cute girl

I think she’s looking
at me; I think I’ll pull her hair

*What was it like
before reading under the covers with a flashlight

Some misadventures of a dog and a
boy

*What was it like
before Lancelot, my dog, he walked me

I think he’s the size
of a horse

Saturday afternoon
our usual snowball fight

This one has Susie’s
name on it; we’ve got plans later to play doctor today

*What was it like
before living on a cul-de-sac, and leading the parades in my mind

*What was it like
before Sunday school and playing game boy; I’m almost to level 5

*What was it like
before wanting to stay home before going to summer camp and never wanting to go
home

Saturday night the
cartoons are all gone; watching the sun go down with mom and dad

Well now I’m a level
six wizard in gameboy-land

Now eating dinner
with the family; somehow Lancelot gets my vegetables

Then time for
Late-night with the Barbarian and then bed

*What was it like
before Flinstone vitamins and matching toothbrushes

*What was it like
before Superman underwear, because that’s who’d I become to face the monsters
under my bed

*What was it like
before Saturday

*What was it like
before Saturday

Until Tomorrow
Then

by pete

Tormented waters a
storm at bay

Unquenchable lust for
others away

I see you smile for
another

Wishing you would
just look my way

Constantly
Constance

Constrictingly Constrictance

Fabulously
Fabulous

Painstakingly
Painful

*Until tomorrow
then

I keep wishing on
that bright star

Until tomorrow
then

Just breathe
remembering me

Until tomorrow
then

Take time and I will
fall into your embrace

Until tomorrow
then

And I will fall from
grace

Chances and dances
with you

What if Kipling had
his way

Then I might be
around and not leaving you

All you had to do was
say stay

I might be back I
could even write a song or two

I’ll try not to creep
out anyone especially you

I am myself always
around and away from the blues

I don’t count my
stars without thinking of you

*

Lester We Forgot
by pete
You see life it seems
will turn into you
because life will leave so fast
so fast it gets back to you
Will not find out
Life it seems
What if I could come down to the clouds every time
What if I could be alive for this time
This time will come around to you
This will be for
around and around
the dreams will fall up and down
What I were to sing you a song
What if I were to love this life as you did, I could be wrong
What If I were to just to fall in love
What If I just fall in love
Again its those dreams that they will pass along to me
We’ll not be because it could last a lifetime to me
Well along came that dream to you
What if I could see the stars in the night like you could
What if I could be somebody other then someone you should be
What if I could be along now child?
Be along now child
Be long long way
Be a long long way from home
again and again and again
Because we soldier on
again and again and again
we must before its gone
What if you were to love me?
What if you were to come around?
What if you were to love me?
Life again
What if you were to be on my mind?
On my dream
On my way
On my feet
On my way
Wouldn’t it be nice
by pete
Wouldn’t it be nice to leave Los Angeles
Well let’s just see what comes of it
Finding a way through the hipsters hanging around
Wouldn’t it be nice to leave tonight
*Let the rain come down on me
And the whispered moonlight nights sing so softly across your tongue
Let the rain come down on you
Because you will always right my wrongs
Wouldn’t it be nice
Wouldn’t it be nice to leave Houston Texas
You said “Let’s see what comes of it”
Finding a train to ride silently downtown tonight
It’s a one way ticket to nowhere and out of site

*

Wouldn’t it be nice to leave New York City

Your friends will help you when it comes time
Finding your dreams are already conquered and won
So let’s just leave tonight

*

Loneliness is a Bittersweet Love Song

by pete
You see life it seems to turn around my friend
Sorry I did not tell you sooner then
wave a white flag staring down your street
Making the rounds losing life to sweetYou say love love my love
Loneliness in a blind mans gaze
And Love Love
Love is all we ever needYou said two shots in the dark to miss
We always lose a great lovers kiss
Living up dreams turning up stone cold
Finding the time to grow up and find your soulYou say love love my love
Loneliness I found in spades
And Love Love
Love is all I ever needed(Bridge)

Stop and turn around lights out my friend
You’ve got a lot to say to me then
Patch a red flag you know this means war
Lovers, fighters, they can’t keep score

You say love love my love
Loneliness in life must change
And Love Love
Love is all you ever need

Bad Idea

pete, sam, ashley
She Wiped a defiant tear from her cheek
And cursed that man in the rear view mirror
She’s got enough quarters and dimes to get there and back
But she swears she’ll only use half
She’s fallen in love more than a few times
She wears bad luck on her shoulder
Her tears and thread holding her together
She fell in love with a bad idea
They found themselves walking the same road
Waving their pickets on a whim and a prayer
They don’t seem to care what they are saying
As long as they are heard
They’ve fallen in love more than a few times
They wear bad luck on their shoulders
They fear the threads holding them together
they fell in love with a bad idea
I found myself following her trail of tears
That brought me to a broken down motel
I found the one I was looking for
With her shattered heart above the door
I’ve fallen in love more than a few times
I wear bad luck on my shoulders
I tear the thread holding us together
I fell in love with a bad idea

 

All the Way Down

Pete, Ashley

There is stardust on my floor these days

Hanging out with the little dogs and happiness and
fairytales

You say your life is not too sudden

All of a sudden you fall in love

And the lamplighters of our sneakered hearts

Will mix with the chess and the checkers and the checkmates

Together now

We are soul we are wanderers

We look so good together

Feeling like screaming we scheme about our futures

We always find our way home

Traveling like timing it’s all about the love and the humor
in our souls

With the mix of vinyl and CDs that you love

We are two smoking barrels of fun

Together now

We are fools we are conquerors

We look so good together love

All the way down
