"Either Way..."





"Check It Out"

A million young poets
Screamin' out their words
To a world full of people
Just livin' to be heard
Future generations
Ridin' on the highways that we built
I hope they have a better understanding

Check it out
Goin' to work on Monday
Check it out
Got yourself a family
Check it out
All utility bills have been paid
You can't tell your best buddy that you love him
So check it out
Where does our time go
Check it out
Got a brand new house in escrow
Check it out
Sleepin' with your back to your loved one
This is all that we've learned about happiness

Check it out
Forgot to say hello to my neighbors
Check it out
Sometimes I question my own behavior
Check it out
Talkin' about the girls that we've seen on the sly
Just to tell our souls we're still the young lions
So check it out
Gettin' too drunk on Saturdays
Check it out
Playin' football with the kids on Sundays
Check it out
Soarin' with the eagles all week long
And this is all that we've learned about living
This is all that we've learned about living

A million young poets
Screamin' out their words
Maybe someday
Those words will be heard
By future generations
Ridin' on the highways that we built
Maybe they'll have a better understanding
Check it out
Hope they'll have a better understanding...





"Let It Take You"

They sail light, ocean
Sail this night, ocean
Filling my sleep so gently

Just let it take you
Just let it steer

They sail light, ocean
Sail this night, ocean
Shimmer like gold,
They're singing
Filling my sleep so gently

Just let it take you
Just let it steer
Just let it take you
This is easy

Old Music (Still Good Music): Guns N' Roses - "Patience"...

In my top 100 favorite songs of all time. Still great.

"If I can't have you right now...I'll wait, dear. Sometimes I get so tense but I can't speed up the time. But you know love, there's one more thing to consider. Said, woman, take it slow and things will be just fine. You and I'll just use a little patience. Said, sugar, take the time 'cause the lights are shining bright. You and I've got what it takes to make it..."
