  • 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

  • 03:27 Download Lyrics Living for Today

    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

     

    Living For,

    Living For Today

    Living For,

    Living For Today

    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,

    Living For Today

    Living For,

    Living For Today

    That’s my way

     

    Living For,

    Living For Today

    Living For,

    Living For Today

    Baby its ok

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 reason”. Granite Falls can be purchased online at cdbaby.com
