    Winter's Day

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

      chorus:
    Winter's Day let me fly away
    Give me wings to soar and sway
    Fly me high beyond these grey skies
    Far away from a Winter's Day

      verses:
    It's laid me low
    Left me no place to go
    Drove me out where cold winds blow
    And now I'm lost
    Right here in town
    Counting the costs
    That've brought me down
        (chorus)

    Since you're here
    I thought I'd stay near
    But lately it's become too clear
    If I'm around
    I might bring you down
    To feel this wayOn a Winter's Day
        (chorus)

    I'm Not What I Seem

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    Well I'm Not What I Seem
    Though I may look like your dream
    Of the sweet young thing
    Who'll wear your ring
    And obey your wishes in every little thing
    Well I'm not what I seem
    No I'm not what I seem

    It must be some kind of thrill for you
    To try and make a woman do
    Exactly what you tell her to
    Hasn't it occurred to you

    That I'm not what I seem
    No peaches and no cream
    Oh yes I've got a brain or two
    I just might have more brains than you
    Well I'm not what I seem
    No I'm not what I seem

    I think that you should try and find
    Some gal with only half a mind
    Or maybe one that's deaf and blind
    Or just don't care when you're unkind

    But I'm not what I seem
    Though I may look like your dream
    Of the sweet young thing
    Who'll wear your ring
    And obey your wishes in every little thing
    Well I'm not what I seem
    No I'm not what I seem

    Oh you were mighty nice at first
    Your song and dance were well rehearsed
    But now we're in the second verse
    And you've begun to do your worst
    Oh you're not what you seemed
    No I guess I must have dreamed
    The guy who used to make me feel
    Like everything in life was real
    Well you're not what you seemed
    No you're not what you seemed

    Tired and Hungry (Scared and Lonely)

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

      verses:
    I drove all night down Highway 101
    Driving this waymakes me feel like I'm on the run
    And up ahead a big old truck with flaps behind his wheels
    saying "Tired and Hungry", "Scared and Lonely"
    And that's just how I feel
        (chorus)

    Traveling is hard to live with when you're by yourself
    My brain's on automatic and my heart is on the shelf
    I'm looking for a better life somewhere down the road
    but when you start with nothing then nothing's all you're owed
        (chorus)

    The highway brings back memories that I can't erase
    And every time I stop I find I'm looking for your face
    But even though I love you so my life must be my own
    And when you can't be with me I still must go alone
        (chorus)

 

 

      chorus:
    I'm tired, so tired and hungry, so hungry
    Scared, so scared and lonely, so lonely
    I need you darling, if only, if only
    You'd find me again somehow
    And I know, my love, that only, yes only
    You can help me now
    If you'd find me again somehow

    Simply Silly

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    If you are only thinking of me
    I'll be the honeysuckle in your rose
    The butterfly that lights upon your nose
    Will be me
    You see you've

    Strung me along and sung me your song
    Till everybody's saying you are mine
    Still I find myself unable to divine
    What you feel
    for me dear

    If I could read your heart like a book
    I'd study like I went back to school
    If you're just playing, taking a look
    Then right-side-up or up-side down
    I'll look like a fool

    If you are only thinking of me
    I'll be the coochi-coochi in your coo
    You know I'm simple silly over you
    Yes you do

    Paper

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    Paper in the kitchen
    and paper on the walls
    Paper in the bathroom
    and even in the halls
    Paper in the mailbox
    and underneath the news
    Paper on the doorknob
    with someone else's views
    and I'll bet we throw away
    a million sheets of paper a day

    As soon as she got a computer
    She thought her life would be paper-free
    But whenever the programs don't suit her
    She's got to print them out
    to see what she can see

    and instead of using less
    I think she's using more
    It's spewing out the printer
    and spilling on the floor
    and there's paper for your schoolwork
    and letters to your friends
    Paper on your birthday
    I guess it never ends
    and I'll bet we throw away
    a million pounds of paper a day

    And whenever you take yourself shopping
    There's paper in every store
    and the paper mills run without stopping
    No matter how much we use
    we still can use more

    And whatever is printed on paper
    Can Influence the reader I guess
    So now that we've got the copy machine
    We're redefining the power of the press

    And there's paper starting fires
    and littering the streets
    Advertising flyers and propaganda sheets
    and there's paper in the sewers
    and the garbage and the waves
    and there's a little we recycle
    and a little that we save
    and I'll bet we throw away
    a million tons of paper a day

    Just to Tease You

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

      verses:
    Stalled out in the middle of a busy street
    Stuck here on the griddle and they're turning up the heat
    This old truck is temperamental
    Got to treat her strong and gentle
    Stalled out in the middle of a busy street
        (chorus)

    Patience ain't a virtue in America
    Slowing down can hurt you in America
    You'll quickly find that it won't pay
    If you're sitting in the way
    Patience ain't a virtue in America
        (chorus)

    The business world don't seem too mix with poverty
    and fortune's often playing tricks with this dichotomy
    but understand this is the land of opportunity
    The business world don't seem to mix with poverty
        (chorus)

      chorus:
    And if you honk your horn at me
    Do you think my engine will agree
    To start this bus and move itJust to please you?
    Do you think I like the place I am
    In the middle of this traffic jam
    Perhaps I stalled my engineJust to Tease You

    Near You

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    I came to see
    if you'd still be here
    and I came to see
    if my vision would clear
    Near You - Near You

    Just a voice whispering in a dream
    saying you and I were through
    and like a child, and feeling lost
    I come running back to you
    I needed to know if you'd still be here
    and I needed to see if my vision would clear
    Near You - Near You

    Just a boy across the hall
    who smiles seductively
    He stands too close when he speaks my name
    and I feel his mind touching me
    and I need to know if you'll still be here
    and I need to see if my vision will clear
    Near You - Near You

    Somebody Else's Shoes

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    My old Grampa said over and over
    Each time as if it was news
    You never know how someone else feels
    Till you've stood for a while in their shoes
    Now lately, I have come to see
    How my old Granddaddy was right
    Cos I've been standing in somebody else's
    shoes nearly every single night

    Now, my feet start to itching when I walk in the door
    Of that old Salvation Army store
    They've got everybody else's shoes galore
    and they only cost a dollar or two
    So I've been standing, I've been walking
    I've been all over town
    In someone else's shoes
    I've been getting around
    If my feet had faces they both would frown
    In Somebody Else's Shoes

    Now I'm so sore below my knees
    My feet just want to be set free
    And every step's another squeeze
    of metatarsal agony
    But comfort costs so much these days
    With the rent come due
    and the bills to pay
    and the pavement wears those shoes away
    and leaves your toes outside to freeze

    So my Grampa said it, now this is the deal
    If you stand in their shoes
    then you'll know how they feel
    If they felt like this, it's easy to say
    Why they gave the damn things away!

    Heart to Heart

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

      verses:
    Got a problem haunting me
    No way to solve it I can see
    Nothing left for me to do
    But go my way, leaving you
        (chorus)

    We were happy for a while
    Used to always see you smile
    Knew you liked your whiskey too
    But didn't know what it could do
        (chorus)

    Bottle sits there on the shelf
    Smiling, happy with itself
    Can't compete with that, no
    It won your heart so long ago
        (chorus)

      chorus:
    And if you love your bottle more than me
    Then I' guess I'm gonna have to set you free
    But can it hold you tight
    When the day turns into night
    Will it give you tender kisses when you part
    Will it take you by the hand
    Will it try to understand
    Will it give you sweet sweet lovingheart to heart

    What's the Matter With You?

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    So, What's the Matter With You?
    You know you're hardly smilin'
    What's the matter with you?
    You've been away a while and
    Baby what did I doto get this feeling from you?
    I'd like to sail away on
    a windy summer day with you

    So what's the matter with you?
    You know you seem to frown at
    everything that I do
    It really brings me down that
    you used to laugh at my jokes
    but now a joke can provoke
    a disagreement or two
    Or did you find someone new?
    I'd like to sail away on
    a windy summer day with you

    I'd like to sail away on
    a windy summer day
    and feel those summer breezes in my hair
    I'd like to hear your heart out
    If you would leave the part out
    where you say
    you don't care - so

    What's the matter with you
    You know you're hardly smilin'
    What's the matter with you
    You've been away awhile and
    Baby what did I do
    To get this treatment from you?
    I'd like to sail away on
    a windy summer day with you

    You Are Changing My Life

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    You Are Changing My Life
    every single day
    You are changing my life
    in a very special way

    What you do to me
    it's so heavenly
    I could almost fly
    Fly me high and far away
    far from all those yesterdays
    before I met you
    It's you
    Yes you - have changed my life
    in many, many ways

    Raindrop

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    There's a Raindrop falling gently from a darkened sky
    Silent brooding clouds are moving gently toward my life

    If you go away
    All that I can say
    Is I hope you know I'll miss you so
    I wish that you could stay

    If you find your heart reminds you of me once you're gone
    Call for me, I could be free but please don't wait too long

    When you go away
    All that I will say
    Is I hope you know I'll miss you so
    I wish that you could stay

    There's a raindrop falling gently from a darkened sky
    Silent brooding clouds are moving gently through my life

    Though the sun may change the raindrops into colored light
    Only you could make that rainbow shine for me tonight

    Love Can't You Stay?

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    We must tread softly past all of our fears
    Hide from their listening ears
    and the glistening of their tears
    Leave them alone, don't bother them
    Leave them alone, don't let them in here

    Off in the twilight with night drawing near
    Look there a flickering host
    of bickering ghosts appear
    Leave them alone, don't bother them
    Leave them alone, don't let them in here

    Look, there is Guilt dressed in old rags of gray
    Look, there is Pain and he's looking this way
    Love Can't You Stay

    Leave them alone, don't bother them
    Leave them alone, don't let them in
    Leave them alone, don't bring them this way

    Fragile the balance between night and day
    Agile the chanceThat makes work out of play
    Love Can't You Stay?

    We must tread softly past all of our fears
    Hide from their listening ears
    And the glistening of their tears
    Leave them alone, don't bother them
    Leave them alone, don't let them in
    Leave them alone, don't bother them
    Leave them alone, don't let them in here
    Don't let them in here

    Nightingale

    © 1989 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    I am the Nightingale
    I sing my song revealing how it feels to be real
    Deep within your fairytale

    I fly beneath the sky
    And must be free
    Captivity will stifle my song
    Let my melody run dry

    Mixed dreams of reality
    Great fortunes and poverty
    One must be above or beneath to be free
    Listen my friends
    The middle enslavedbetween the ends

    And I am the nightingale
    I sing my song revealing how it feels to be real
    Deep within your fairytale

    Please Turn it Off!

    © 1988 M. Guderian, all rights reserved

    It costs a lot to sell a point of view
    But if you've got the cash
    you could convince us that it's true
    And I'm wondering which came first
    Reality or the newspapers
    Does the media tell us what to think
    And how to live and die

    And what the human mind does best is make mistakes
    So what many folks believe in
    ought to be a fake
    Bought and paid for
    Yes, it's so hard to tell
    in a world that's advertised so well
    Just remember, when you believe a lie
    You make it true for you

    And mindless repetition is the way we're taught to learn
    And it's coming at us every day
    Every way we turn
    Turn it off
    Please turn it off
    Please, just turn it off
