Lyrics

SLOWDOWN

Take a minute to reflect Upon the day just passed Take a minute to collect Sensations that will last Take a minute to enjoy The precious here and now Take a minute to explore The reasons why and how HOOK: Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last Take a minute to define The sub-titles of love Take a minute to observe The mysteries above Take a minute to extract Some meaning from each other Take a special minute, Then another and another HOOK: Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last -------------------------SOLO------------------------------------- HOOK: Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you – know – you’ve – got to slowdown Repeat 17 X’s Slowdown Repeat Hook 3 X’s HOOK: Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last Slowdown you move to fast you move to fast Slowdown you know you’ve got to make it last

Story

The title "BRING IT ON HOME TO ME" is really a love request for the love of my life to choose me in her life    You know--- Bring it on home to me --- bring your love to me

This was recorded at Island Sound Studio's as most of my works were and with this one & several others I had the help of my main squeeze musician peers

On drums the really fine playing and incomparable musicianship & perfection of Adam Colombo

On Guitar Joe Pollari if you don't know who he is YOU SHOULD! He's simply one of the great unknown players around and his playing is constructively deliriously delicious.

On Guitar is the equally fine playing & tasty solo work of Todd Cogan who I also collaborated with in writing some other tracks on this CD

All Other Instruments & Vocals on this track Arranging by:  Paul Antonios

Lyrics

                      "Crazy Love"

I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open up every time she smiles
And when I come home to her that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to her like a river's song

[chorus]
she gives me love love love love crazy love
she gives me love love love love crazy love...

She's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come home to her when the sun goes down
She takes away my troubles, takes away my grief
Takes away my heartache in the night like a thief.

[repeat chorus]
 
Yes I need her in the daytime
Yes I need her in the night
I want to throw my arms around her
To kiss her, hug her, kiss her, hug her tight
And when I'm returning from so far away
She gives me such sweet lovin' brightens up my day
And makes me righteuos and makes me whole
And it makes me mellow down to my soul

[repeat chorus]

Story

 

 

This song came about because my cousin Billy was getting married and I needed to find a song to sing and  dedicate to him and his bride Lori at there wedding

You know my cousin is simply the biggest ELVIS fan I know or for that matter the biggest ELVIS fan the world should know.

Only thing is I hate ELVIS....But he's cool with that besides I just love my cousin so I found this song that inspired me to sing, and was also about ELVIS and Memphis

That song of coarse is "Walkin' In Memphis" Which has now become one of favorite signature songs to sing...

So..Thanks Billy & Lori

Thanks for your inspiration

Walking In Memphis

Put on my blue suede shoes and I - boarded the plane Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues in the middle of the pouring rain W. C. Handy – won’t you look down over me Cause I got a first-class ticket and I’m as blue as a boy can be Then walkin in Memphis walkin with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel Saw the ghost of Elvis on a Union Avenue Followed him up to the gates of Graceland and I watched him walk right through Now security they did not see him they just hovered ‘round his tomb There’s a pretty little thing waitin’ for “The King” down in the jungle room Walkin in Memphis walkin with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel They’ve got catfish on the table ----- they’ve got gospel in the air And Reverend Green he be glad to see ya When you haven’t got a prayer ------------ but boy you’ve got a prayer in Memphis Now Muriel plays the piano every Friday at the Hollywood And they brought me down to see her and they asked me if I would Do a little number and I sang with all my might And she said “Tell me are you Christian and I said ‘Ma’am I am tonight Walkin in Memphis walkin with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel Walkin in Memphis walkin with Elvis ten feet off of Beale I’m walkin in Memphis I’m walkin with Elvis and it’s so real Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel ---- Put on my blue suede shoes and I - boarded the plane Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues in the middle of the pouring rain---

Lyrics

         You'll Feel The Way I Do Someday        

When I think of you -- I feel it in my heart

I want you in my life -- I want you in my head--

I want you in my life I know it's true----

And I know the way I feel -- Is hardly how you feel

And I know the time will come - When you feel the way I do

You'll feel the way I do ----            Some   day--------- ooooo

 

When my heart beats out to seek the love it needs

It always looks to you  --  It always sees it through----

It always doe's the right thing for us two -----

And I know the way I feel -- It's hardly how you feel now

And I know the time will come - When you feel the same way too

You'll feel the way I do ----            Some   day--------- ooooo

 

So it's been this way from the very dawn of time

Man makes his bid for love - And woman gives her all for love

And you know the time will come when they feel love - - --

"Waiting On The World To Change"

Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could

Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That's why we're waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's not that we don't care,
We just know that the fight ain't fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

And we're still waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

YOU’RE PERFECT IN MY EYES

 Like clouds across the sunset A moon in starry skies A rainfall in the springtime— You’re perfect in my eyes All beauty has its shades and tones Each gem a form that’s raw Each diamond has a subtle way Of mirroring its flaw 4 X’s HOOK: You’re perfect in my eyes I see you as the misty mask Enshrouding early day I see you as the wildflower Nuzzling grass away I see you as a naked form With memory’s lonely scars I see you as a feeling That no inner knowledge mars 4 X’s HOOK: You’re perfect in my eyes ---------- Scat Solo ---------- I see you as temptation Casting off your scant disguise I see you as a natural – You’re perfect in my eyes 8 X’s HOOK: You’re perfect in my eyes
