Las Vegas lyrics

February 15, 2011

Las Vegas where’s your soul

Is it in the bright lights or the casinos

Did you leave it somewhere on a long dark road, and keep walking

Las Vegas, where’s your soul

Have the gods of the desert all forsaken you

Left you to stand on your own, all alone

Your colored lights they hypnotize

Stretching out beyond the red rocks that rise on either side

Where do you hide your solitude?

Under a sky so wide and a sun so cruel

Las Vegas, where’s your soul

The desert sand could come and swallow,

Swallow you whole

By the Side of the Road Lyrics

February 9, 2011

Got a request for lyrics, so I’ll be posting the lyrics to all the songs on ‘Go Call the Captain.’  Enjoy!


BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

They buried me by the side of the road
my mind grew distant
my body got old
so they dressed me up
in my favorite clothes
and they buried me there
by the side of the road

They bring me flowers and they lay them at my feet
they cry their tears
and they say their prayers for me
but I don’t need saving
and anyone can see
that I’m better off now
than I’ve ever been

I have no eyes
to see the struggle
I am blind to the ways of the world
I have no mind
to confuse and complicate me
my heart lies still
my body vacant
an empty vessel
left to sleep beneath the dirt

They buried me by the side of the road
these hands you’ve held
are not my own
I’m just a stranger
you used to know
a passenger here
without a home

I have no eyes
to see the struggle
I am blind to the ways of the world
I have no mind
to confuse and complicate me
my heart lies still
my body vacant
an empty vessel
left to sleep

They buried me by the side of the road
my mind grew distant
my body got old
so they dressed me up
in my favorite clothes
and they buried me there
by the side of the road
