Cruel Cruel Boots

My truck looks good on your street
Aw, but parking there ain’t free
My body’ll cover that margin call
Got exact change for the toll
My truck feels good in your drive

Roger Crews: December 27th, 1945 – May 26, 2015

Roger

Thank you all for being here today.

Let’s just stipulate to this right up front; Roger was the smartest, most creative person I’ve ever known. He was also wickedly funny. Roger didn’t know the meaning of leaving a tender moment alone. He’d always have some smart-ass remark to break up any awkward moment. Roger, insert your wise-crack now, because the rest of this thing is mine.

We’ve got folks here from coast to coast. Which is appropriate because Roger lived in almost every part of the country.

Roger wasn’t particularly sentimental about places. Even though he lived in a lot of different areas, there were really only two that he considered home. He never had any interest in driving past his old homes. Once he left a somewhere, he was done with it. He was born in Tampa, but as we all know it would have taken an act Continue reading

You

You

You are everything that is beautiful and powerful in this world
You are everything in my mind that surrounds and twirls
You are everything that makes this world spin at its speed
You are everything that I want and exactley what I need

There’s a light in the window I want to see
There’s a spark in my brain that I need to breathe
There’s someone that’s so far away from where I am
There’s someone that gets the parts no one understands

You are everything that is beautiful and powerful in time and space
You are the one I fixate on in my darkest place
You are the one that came in the nick of time
You are the one got to make you mine…

Elemental

Elemental

There’s a difference between wants and needs
And I walk that thin line
I need the air to breathe
And I still drink to feel fine

There comes a time when elements merge
And what you want is what you need
Like water in the desert heat
Or when two forces meet Continue reading

Get Out Now

Get Out Now

Sitting in the drive
Her hands on the wheel
She was good enough to give him a ride
He fights for words
She stays on task
What if he moves?
What if he asks?

She turns and says
‘You better get out now.”

Twelve Hours

Twelve Hours

He knows he’s got it bad
When he wakes up
And it’s midnight
And he thinks just twelve more hours

Half a day until he sees her
Makes his entrance
Take his place
And play their unwinnable match Continue reading

Shannon

Music by Derek Nolin , Lyrics by Colin Crews

Click here for demo track.

So tell me, Shannon, how can I compare?
I’ll play your favorite songs anywhere
A house on fire ain’t got nothing on us
Dining on ashes and the power of lust

So tell me, Shannon is it okay if I stay?
A moonlight mile to you every day
Ask me where I’m from, my answer’s never the same
Not being coy, just racking my brain

So tell me, Shannon what are we gonna do?
I am living these days, but I’m dying over you
The music plays loud it’ll  never end
I try to leave then turn back again

We just can’t be
But I turn back again
Trying to grab what I can’t find
But you, you could be
Someone in the song that flows along inside my mind

So tell me, Shannon what if we just run?
I’d be less direct, but I’m my father’s son
I’ll take another beer and a whiskey glass
Give you a wink and say they’re my last

So tell me, Shannon what are we gonna find?
I’m  here drinking myself blind
The bar room mirror ain’t the face I came to see
Looking at you won’t you look back at me

So tell me, Shannon what are we gonna do?
I am living these days, but I’m dying over you
The music plays loud it’ll  never end
I try to leave then turn back again…
