  • 03:35 Download Lyrics Holiday Love (Your Private Kris Kringle)

    Christmas eve, crawling through your window

    Haven’t we, haven’t we eloped before

    I could be, your private Kris Kringle

    You can be the one that I’ve been waiting for

     

    Ooh Holiday Love

    Ooh Holiday Love

     

    Christmas eve, crawling out your window

    Haven’t we, haven’t we eloped before

    I could be, your private Kris Kringle

    You can be the one that I’ve been waiting for

     

    Why don’t you spend your Christmas’s with me

    Why don’t you sing Carols for me too

     

    Christmas eve, crawling through your window

    Haven’t we, haven’t we eloped before

    I could be, your private Kris Kringle

    You can be the one that I’ve been waiting for

     

    We could sing together every year

    Some kind of magic that you owe me for

    Owe me for, hold me more

     

    Christmas eve, crawling through your window

    Haven’t we, haven’t we eloped before

    I could be, your private Kris Kringle

    You can be the one that I’ve been waiting for

  • 03:51 Download Lyrics Her Husband Robs Banks

    Her husband robs banks

    So your husband robs banks, then for kicks he left town

    Your children's father was arrested,  smells like  Tacoma town

    In the jailhouse they use torcher, but this was long before that

     made bond with her last 3,000 dollars and he left her flat

     

    Her husband robs banks, and he went on the run

    Down through Colorado, on to Arizona

    Made it to New Mexico, that's as far as he could go

    They said that somebody got killed,

    But Stacey had no time for that

     

    She says things are looking up

    She DRINKS life from a measuring cup

    She says her glass is half full, you can't beat that

    Her hearts been breaking up, her whole world is shaking up...

    She leaves no door left unopened, and gives the lord thanks

     

    Her husband robs banks, and that does no good now

    He's out robbing on the west coast, yeah you know the neighborhood

    Her husband robs banks, you thinks she'd be mad

    And the tragedy is her children don't have a dad

    And the tragedy is her children don't have a dad,    Solo

     

    She says things are looking up

    She DRINKS life from a measuring cup

    She says her glass is half full, you can't beat that

    Her hearts been breaking up, her whole world is shaking up...

    She leaves no door left unopened, and gives the lord thanks

     

    her husband robs banks, and he's been on the fly

    baby if he's ever coming back, say he's gonna do time

    all the late nights gambling, her will is her lords

    73,000 dollars underneath her floorboards

     

    Now she can make ends meet for a month or two?

    She goes on her own little streak, a mother does what she has to do

    Yeah your husband robs banks, all you can say is thanks

    She stays home with the children, she don't know where he goes

    The Tacoma bank pressed charges, that was years before that

    News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

    News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

    News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

     

    Look underneath the floorboard darling...

    Sincerely (Don’t you hear me)

     

    I live in my imagination and I’m torn apart

    Between real life and my fixation, I just love the thought of you

     

    I long to have more information but we’re worlds apart

    It isn’t an exaggeration, I just felt that spark with you

     

    What we gonna do?

     

    True you are an inspiration for my foolish heart

    I honestly have admiration for your love of art I do

     

    Those nights we had is all, Don’t you hear me

    Our passion stands alone, Sincerely in my dreams

     

    Restless now and my impatience I feel Like a falling star

    The years have flown by like a passing glance And my soul just longs for you

     

    Those nights we had still call, Don’t you hear me

    You’ll never dance alone, Sincerely in my dreams

    You Can Say Thanks (Thanksgiving Song)

     

    You can say thanks, There are so many things that are beautiful

    You can say thanks, You’ll be listing them off the whole meal

    You can say thanks, That’s why Thanksgiving day is so wonderful

    You can say thanks,, Together with friends that are real

     

    Giving it all, Giving it all

     

    You can say thanks, For inventions that make your life comfortable

    You can say thanks, That cave men invented the wheel

    You can say thanks, Some people around are responsible

    You can say thanks, It should out way the terror you feel 

     

    Giving it all, Giving it all to worry Giving it all

     

    Over the hills, Over the hills of snow

    Over the hills, Over the hills of snow

     

    You can say thanks, For the freedom to choose, it’s the principal

    You can say thanks, While you struggle at Minimum wage

    You can say thanks, You don’t have to feel so vulnerable

    You can say thanks, That the front lines are so far away

     

    Giving it all, Giving it all to worry Giving it all

    Super Moon (For Robbin Williams)

     

    Underneath the super moon, The August wind sure turned colder 

    The tragic ending came too soon, I can't believe the laughter's over

    And in fact July was too late, Parkinson's from going viral

    Had so many nights in pain, Just can't go through these trials

     

    Underneath the super moon,  The August wind sure turned colder 

    The tragic and came too soon, I can't believe the laughter's over

     And his eyes sore from pain and crying,  On stage such a stallion

    For someone who had his ship Come in,  but end up drowning 

     

    August nights in those days lives and I'll come down, Walking a wire when the clock expires

    Some clowns have painted on frowns, Keep them laughing don’t let him die

     

    Underneath the super moon, I can't believe the song is over

    How could his life and so soon, I can't believe the laughter is over

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, Serious as a heart attack

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, I hope that their prepared for that

    Headed for the west coast, All across America I go

    Maybe I’ll get an offer, Since the old folks Bought the farm Don’t know

     

    they got it at the worlds fair, when we had a little extra scratch

    Hell knows how they got there, Me I’ve never been attached

    Would have pawned it for $100 dollars, When we needed beer Me and Joe

    The fellow never heard of Rembrandt, He is not as big as Elvis I know 

     

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, Serious as a heart attack

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, I hope that their prepared for that

    Me and Joe’s Uncle he made a lot of claims No doubt

    never had a lot of Brains the art world use to think he had clout

     

    Famous artist like Sinatra and that, Sting, Picasso and Slash

    Want to buy this old trash

     

    Fishing for one thousand dollars, and to land on the TV show

    Just don’t want a dally, Just get the cash in my hands and go

    She’s a Little Sally

     

    She’s a Little Sally and She’s gone from bad to worse

    She’s a Little Sally, She wears no cloths when we play nurse

    She’s a Little Sally, Yeah it might sound all perverse

    She’s a Little Sally, Now I’m totally submersed when we play

     

    She’s a Little Sally, When a bar girl snatched her purse

    She’s a Little Sally, The lady stole my 2nd verse

    She’s a Little Sally and our drummers going berserk

    She’s a Little Sally, With the others its all work 

     and so I say, Auf Wiedersehen

     

    She’s a Little Sally, And She’s gone from bad to worse

    She’s a Little Sally, She wears no cloths when we play nurse

    She’s a Little Sally and our drummers going berserk

    She’s a Little Sally, With the others its all work

     and so I say, Auf Wiedersehen

  • 04:30 Download Lyrics Lunch at the Salvation Army

    Lunch at the Salvation Army

     

    At lunch I went to sit down and all tables were mostly filled

    There was a cute little girl out of the corner of my eye

    I knew she'd fit my bill

     

    She was sitting with a financier, and some of the recruits

    She didn't look like she was even out of school

    yes a baby in a fine birthday suit

    Her name was Sara, I worked with her too

     

    I wasn't planning on making it much of a routine

    Still can't help but notice the tears, those kids all have dreams

     

    Most new volunteers come back, feels good to be a part of this scene

    The time just flew right past, and our 1st date was over

    I had a lucky feeling inside, like I found a four leaf clover

     

    lunch at the Salvation Army, lunch at the Salvation Army

     

    They seemed to have a working routine

    Eager to learn and be a part of the team

    They all showed me somebody really cares

    lunch at the Salvation Army you know I'll be there

     

    I could barely believe what my eyes see

    All of the people there caring so much about me

     

    lunch at the Salvation Army, lunch at the Salvation Army 2x

     

    I was happy with Sara there working just loading trucks

    I felt ecstatic still I didn't show it that much

    Inside of an hour I was fussing and combing my hair

    we all have common interests in some things and we always can share

    lunch at the Salvation Army you know I'll be there

    lunch at the Salvation Army, lunch at the Salvation Army

    Are these the facts? The facts of life

    Can we transpose, Perhaps revise

     Define the meaning of our fire

    Find the reason for desire

     

    Are these the facts? The facts of life

    Even though we hear the cries

     Were not all villains, In suits and ties

    Lets find forgiveness, Warmth and light

     

    Are these the facts? The facts of life

    Even though, Its no surprise

     We find the villain, is hypnotized

    Lets find forgiveness, Warmth and light

    Might never know

A Somber Rock-n-Roll semi-automatic view of death and violence.
  • 04:06 Download Lyrics Sober at the Wake

    The mission of the day

    stay sober at the wake

    allergic to foul play

    looking for closure

     

    far too young a man to die

    hard to understand and the Angels sigh

     

    how common is a gun

    how common is a fair fight

    stay calm and not get drunk

    or are you gonna get tight,

    stay sober at the wake

     

    A complicated fate

    a life can be erased

    less dignity then grace

    and left unsatisfied

     

    everybody has to die

    not everybody catches a bullet that ends their life

     

    how common is a gun

    how common is a fair fight

    stay calm and not get drunk

    or are you gonna get tight,

    stay sober at the wake

    Sno-Homeless county, 

    near Seattle WA 

    you just need a cardboard box,

    and the will to stay alive

     

    There’s wine in the cellar

    More expensive than heroin

    If you can avoid Detox

    The junks a far much better buy

     

    Living on a homeless trek , No respect

    Uncle Sam he says Fuck You

    Living on the precipice , Of almost dead and gone

    Looking for a one way fix, Not dirty tricks

    Like a needle or a cork screw

    And I would be so depressed

    If I was living outside

     

    A tent city under the freeway

    Isn’t no way to live

    A tent city under the freeway

    Isn’t no way to live

     

    Some folks are doubters

    Others see clear what’s wrong

    Voicing their scorn-neglect

    And I just cant conceive as why

     

    Stranded on a homeless trek , No respect

    Uncle Sam he says Fuck You

    Living on the precipice , Of almost dead and gone

    Looking for a one way fix, Not dirty tricks

    Like a needle or a cork screw

    And I would be so depressed

    If I was living outside

    And I’d be so upset, if my home was I-5

    You know me, I’m not looking back

    or looking past today

    You know me, I had no fear

    Until Edward Snowden made his play

     

    Trying to live my life offline, I’m not leaving my privacy behind

    Someone’s tracking every word I say

    That ain’t ok

     

    They track your I.P.

    Everything you buy

    Via satellite, array 

     

    They charge you fees

    sell your sensitive data

    big corporations bird of prey

     

    Trying to live my life offline, I’m leaving the politics behind

    Someone’s tracking every word I say

    That ain’t ok

     

    How did we become a state of spies?

    How did we become a state of spies?

     

    You know me I’m working out here

    Playing music everyday

    You know me, could I be more clear?

    When I write the fricken songs I sing?

     

    Trying to live my life offline, I’m not leaving my privacy behind

    I hopped a freight down through Oregon    

    Heading west on a Columbia run

    Across the tracks those oil men live like kings

    And they’ll likely make a mess of things

     

    The environment wont be the same.

    Salmon don’t spawn 

    The food chain is gone, Oil Train

     

    Went off track here in Interbay

    Rolled the dice and we are lucky to say

    Here In Seattle there was No loss of life

    Remains a battle, huh! you just pay a fine

     

    Society knows who to blame

    And the governments role

    Selling their soul, Oil Train

    Trains, that stretch a mile or longer        D

    Shame, there needs to be a resource in place, 

    To make it safe

     

    A lightning storm, wind and pouring rain

    Some act of God we have yet to explain

    A terrorist or some drunken driver

    lobbyists that holding Feet to the fire

     

    They chose to forgo being safe

    Salmon don’t spawn 

    The food chain is gone, Oil Train

  • 06:05 Download Lyrics AY-102 Wasteland Washington

    What I am about to tell you is not a secret

    The projected price tag to clean it up is $100 billion — and counting.

     

    AY-102

     

    Started out like war

    Poor man getting shit on by the ones in charge

    Hanford WA was born 

     

    Ay-102

     

    Its what they call each of 28

    dual insulated containers

    holding nuclear waste

    has been breached – quote unquote dangerous

     

    u might think that’s ok

    but their more than 14 years behind schedule

    and its costing the tax payers of WA

    2 billion a year

    and there not even fixing the problem

     

    Ay-102

     

    In Hanford they also have

    177 of the single seal tanks

    workers have been transferring over

    to the dual insulated containers

    all together holding some 

    56 million Gallons of waste

     

    what does the energy dept. say about it?

    these buildings are complex

     

    and cost to the tune of some 13 billion 

     

    and eventually they’ll turn the waste into 

    some sort of stable glass form

    this is the process known as vistrification

     

    The glass in turn would be put into a stainless steal

    Detainment center for long time storage. 

     

    And how long is that? What’s the half life?

     

    There gonna get gong on that… 2022

     

    And in the meantime were supposed to trust them.

    Trust that they know what there doing.

     

    Its like the IRS or any other self governing agency

    For that matter

     

    D

    Wasteland 

    Washington

     

    You know a fella I used to get high with when I was young

    Graduated college, took a job at Hanford, at the plant

    He knew he would probably die early from the radiation, but

    He figured somebody had to go and keep an eye on things

     

    AY-102

    The Environmental Protection Agency is fining the Department of Energy — which operates Hanford — $10,000 each week. In a letter announcing the fines, the EPA said, “The original 2002 date by which sludge removal was to be completed has been extended 13 years,” and the Department of Energy has had “ample time to fund and commence sludge removal.”

  • 03:01 Download Lyrics Serena's New Suprise

    Beautiful eyes, and auburn hair

    Your spirit’s alive an it shows you care 

    Why don’t we just try, like lovers share

    You are the answer to my prayers

     

    You know I’d like to fool around

    But I’m terrified, that I, 

    just might let you down

     

    No need to reply to the silence now

    I had a good time, you showed me how

    Then you showed me around your flower garden

    Springtime is only starting

     

    A open heart has no disguise,

    And I’m terrified, your eyes, 

    can see right through me now

     

    Serena’s new surprise, is much bluer skies

    There’ll be no goodbyes, Serena’s laughing now

     

    We could go dance make no mistake

    Hold on to friendships that you make

    You understand the promises

    Moving forward, baby steps

     

    There is no need to wonder why

    But I’m terrified, her eyes

    Are laughing at me now

     

    Serena’s new surprise, is much bluer skies

    There’ll be no goodbyes, Serena’s laughing now

    Serena’s new surprise, is much bluer skies

    No need for goodbyes…

  • 03:12 Download Lyrics Adreanna

    Adreanna couldn’t cure my ills, she feels the same way

    Adreanna won’t you pay my bills, she told me to get away

    Adreanna won’t unpack my thrills, dressed in pretty lace

    Adreanna won’t you pay my bills, she said to get away

     

    Firing speed is her enemy, lightning force got a hold on me

    The firing line I get as close as I can

    All in all a catastrophe, a bottle of wine and a prophecy

    In Granite Falls we both know the main man

     

    Adreanna won’t accept my fears, time is what it takes

    Adreanna try to hide my tears, I’ve been up for days

    Adreanna couldn’t cure my ills, she feels the same way

    Adreanna wouldn’t pay may bills, got to get away

     

    Firing speed was her enemy, lightning force got a hold on me

    The firing line I get as close as I can

    All in all a catastrophe, a bottle of wine and a prophecy

    In Granite Falls we both know the main man

     

    Adreanna couldn’t cure my ills, she feels the same way

    Adreanna couldn’t pay may bills, got to get away

    Adreanna won’t accept my fears, crime just doesn’t pay

    Adreanna don’t hide my tears, I’ve been up for days

     

    Adreanna wouldn’t cure my ills, I feel the same way

    Adreanna doesn’t pay my bills, got to get away

     

    Adreanna won’t accept my fears, crime just doesn’t pay

    Adreanna knows her hopes and fears…

    I’ve been up for days

  • 02:33 Download Lyrics Living Sensible

    There’s and empty coffee cup, sitting on a table top

    It’s empty now but once was full

    They call it living sensible

     

    In a daze just passing time, shun the needle snort a line

    We thought that real life was dull

    They called it living sensible 

     

     

    It’s not enough being tough

    It’s not the same being sane

    You’re not alone being stoned

    Stoned to mask the pain

     

     

    Curt Cobain was still alive, we played at every dump and dive

    Pass round the bottle take a pull

    We called it living sensible

     

    Philosophers that turned to dust

    Still burning the rest of us

    Some people don’t take no chance at all

    They call it living sensible

     

     

    It’s not enough being tough

    It’s not the same being sane, it’s natural

    You’re not alone feeling stoned

    Stoned to mask the pain

     

    There’s and empty coffee cup, sitting on a table top

    It’s empty now but once was full

  • 01:56 Download Lyrics You Can't Rape the Willing

    We both want to own a nice car

    Or mind sharing a home and a yard

    We both can envision the way should be

    You can’t rape the willing baby

     

    We all want to strum the guitar

    She’s saying that my music’s too hard

    I ain’t quite as brilliant as I thought I might be

    You can’t rape the willing baby

     

    Hey! Sunshine hold me close

    I’ll be your Romeo

     

    You always should be on your guard

    With yours, such a beautiful Bod

    I’m not quite a villain, old, mean, nasty

    You can’t rape the willing baby

     

    I’m not quite a villain, old, mean, and nasty

    You can’t rape the willing baby

  • 02:04 Download Lyrics A Failure at Least Tries (Crazy)

    You nearly killed the wrong person

    To kill that addict inside

    These are poor defenseless words

    Behind my feelings that are reeling

     

    You’re quite a lot like me

    Least there’s a reason for your madness

    You’re quite a lot like me

    You’re crazy

     

    You could fill the whole ocean

    With all the tears that we’ve cried

    Although we come from different worlds

    We both like Steelers, and Peelers

     

    You’re quite a lot like me

    Still there’s a reason, there’s still next season

    You’re quite a lot like me

    You’re crazy

     

    It’s a weary wasted world

    And there ain’t no free ride

    OK yeah life is hard

    I can’t really deny

     

    You’re quite a lot like me

    A Least a failure tries

    You’re quite a lot like me

    You’re crazy

  • 02:18 Download Lyrics Paradise Is in Your Arms

    There’s something in the way she touches me

    Something in the way she wants just me

    Something in you girl just understands

    That something makes me want to take your hand

     

    Waking up in the middle of the night because I want you

    I can’t wait another day till I come home

    I get lost when I gaze into your eyes, I said I love you

    I could swear that paradise is in your arms

     

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

     

    Something in the way things have to be

    Both stubborn in her ways and hard to please

    Something in the way she pushes me

    Something in her that’s too hard to beat

     

    Waking up in the middle of the night because I want you

    I can’t wait another day till I come home

    I get lost when I gaze into your eyes because I love you

    I could swear that paradise is in your arms

     

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

  • 02:55 Download Lyrics Gina's on My Case

    I feel home in Gina’s arms 

    I feel safe clean and warm

    I get stoned and so far gone 

    I am sure that she’s the one

     

    Gina, Gina, I want you

    Gina, Gina, wants me too

     

    I feel changed, a brand new man

    Maybe another circumstance

    In my dreams she moves so fast

    Like a ray of hope to task

     

    Gina, Gina, I want you

    Gina, Gina, wants me too

     

    I performed in Switzerland

    I joined a Looney band

    A love affair in such demand

    Other girls don’t give a damn

     

    Gina, Gina, I want you

    Gina, Gina, wants me too

     

    No soft porn, engagements wrong

    Like a storm before the dawn

    Laid to waste in Monroe’s farm

    On my case with so much charm 

     

    Gina, Gina, I want you

    Gina, Gina, wants me too

    Gina, Gina, I want you

    Gina, Gina, wants me too

  • 02:01 Download Lyrics Two Can Be One

    How can I say it

    And still dignify my integrity?

    Girl when I pray 

    I dream that it could be you and me

     

     

    How could I lie?

    Baby sometimes my tongue gets tied

    We used to get high, but

    Really I’m a respectful guy

     

     

    Lay with me, shelter me

    Try to understand

    I’m not what I appear to be

    Let me love you, you know I can

    Two can be one

     

     

    Its been a nice day

    And No one came here to visit me

    Girl that’s OK

    You’re always there with a smile for me

     

    Live with me, comfort me

    Girl, I’ll be your man

    If you ask I shall set you free

    Because I love you, woman

    Two can be one

    I don’t want to stay here another day

    I want to just play and to get away

    I know that it’s fine just a state of mind

    Trust me I’m ok

    I don’t want to stay here another day

     

    The feelings they come and they fade away

    The colors are bland when the future’s gray

    I know that it’s all just a state of mind

    Frankly I don’t care

    The feelings they come and they fade away

    That’s my way

     

    I don’t want to stay here another day

    I want to just play then to get away

    I know that it’s all just a state of mind

    Frankly I don’t care

    I don’t want to stay here another day

     

    Living For,

NOTES
Kelly’s new CD “Granite Falls,” brings the partnership of violinist Vicki Ault. The album is spontaneous and consists of mostly first takes. Granite Falls could have been any small town in the Northwest where there is Backyard Living and consequently acoustic style back porch gatherings. Kelly notes, “It’s crazy that out of such a downer year I could record such a consistent sounding CD. It proves the theory that everything happens for a …
