If Your House Were On Fire

We all play with matches metaphorically I’d say We see danger in the distance and we promptly head that way Something about the smell of smoke draws crowds like a parade Very best of customers are the very most afraid

But if your house were on fire And you thought of all the things you had acquired Say your half way out the window down the tree Would you think at all of coming back for me

Some say life’s a journey, I’d say life’s more like a trip Some stumble and some fallin’ but that’s less than half of it All you gets a backpack and a solid pair of shoes The kind of shoes you wear well that’s up to you to choose

But if your house were on fire And you thought of all the things you had acquired Say your half way out the window down the tree Would you think at all of coming back for me

Lennon said imagine, JZ says life is pain Dawkin’s squawkin’ ’bout religion, Dylan sings a train in vain The Secret’s a best seller and Oprah knows the trick Most people think they’re happy when they think they get to pick

But if your house were on fire And you thought of all the things you had acquired Say your half way out the window down the tree Would you think at all of coming back for me

Moonlight

First time I saw you, Sadie Hawkins at the hall Our eyes met and your friends drove by but you didn’t heed the call Going swimmin at the Quarry lake you said yes you’d come along Through the years like yesterday not a moment of it wrong Eighteen takin off our clothes trying to act like we don’t care Got nervous when you caught my glance but your eyes said, double dare Must have been about 12 of us but it seemed like me and you Bought a ticket on a time machine built of bedrock with a view All we wore was the moonlight Summer heat was just right Dreams all set to take flight And the world was ours to have College came and went, like the wagon we drove west Can’t say for certain but it seems we did our best Made the most of moments as they whistled by like trains No one else I’d rather wake up with out at the Quarry Lakes in the rain All we wore was the moonlight Summer heat was just right Dreams all set to take flight And the world was ours to have Still love to watch you through the window, in the yard To see you playing with our children warms my heart Come Friday night , we’ll take em over to your parents, and we’ll go Down a mud rut turkey trail that we first drove long ago All we wore was the moonlight Summer heat was just right Dreams all set to take flight And the world was ours to have
