Track Name: This Moment With Me
Please don’t you take it wrong
If I call you up on the phone
And please don’t you take it wrong
If I come by all alone

'Cause yesterday’s already gone
Tomorrow is no guarantee
So just take this for what it is, my friend
And spend this moment with me

Outside the rains are comin’ down
Another year earth spinnin’ 'round
Inside it’s chilly to the bone
On the couch all alone

The walls in this town are closing in
Time to move on again
I just hope that you’ll take the chance, my friend
To spend this moment with me

I could say “I love you” and it’d be true
If you only knew how much I do
But I’ll just keep quiet and smile
And hold you close for a little while

Tonight we’ll sing "Hare Krishna"
Tomorrow, "Praise the Lord"
Can't you see it's all the same as the love
In this moment with me
In this moment with me
Track Name: I Found Love
I found love on the 101
With rain fallin' down outside
Sitting next to you I was just happy
To be alive

I found love in a quiet hall
We were tangled up in blue
I could feel your heart speak
I wonder, could you?

And I found love as the songbird sang
And angels danced around
And I heard a sweet voice saying,
"I was lost and now I'm found"

I found love in my baby's smile
He's got the purest heart you ever did see
That's why it's so hard, my baby,
To set you free.
Oh but I'm trying, I'm trying, my baby
To set you free
Track Name: Hippie Boyfriend
I'm gonna get me a hippie boyfriend
And live with him in a hippie house
I'm gonna get me a hippie boyfriend
And kiss him on his hippie mouth

Diggin' dirt and plantin' flowers
Work real hard in the daytime light
Incense, records, and sweet caresses
Play real soft in the darkness of night

Chorus

Open the fridge and what'll you find
Organic spinich and fruits of all kind
Open the cupboard and what'll there be
Mismatched mugs from NYC

Chorus

Smoke some pot and play guitar
How I wonder where you are
So I send the message through my heart
This fairy tale's about to start

Chorus

I Woke up in the nighttime hours
Sky full of starlight and head full of you
You shine so bright
Creature of light
Reflecting back to me what's true

So will you be my hippie boyfriend
And live with me in a little house
Will you be my hippie boyfriend
And kiss me with your hippie mouth
Kiss me with your hippie mouth
Kiss me with your beautiful mouth
Track Name: California King
Someday I'll have a California king
Summer's kisses and a tattoo ring
"There ain't much to this love thing"
I'll say to my California king

Someday I'll have a room with a view
Baby grand and my guitar, too
Up so high the sky so blue
Out the window of my room with a view

High
So high
High
As a cloud in the sky
Blowin' by

Someday I'll be where Jerry played
Way back in those good old days
Lookin' out from that great big stage
I'll be where Jerry played

Then I'll have peace of mind
The kind that's so hard to find
Ecstasy runnin' up my spine
Oh I'll have peace of mind

Chorus

Someday I'll know joyful love
Sent down from the stars above
Right to me on the wings of a dove
Oh I'll know joyful love
Oh I know joyful love
Track Name: Kihei Blues
I drove down through Kihei
Hopin' to catch a glimpse of you
I drove down through Kihei
Hopin' to catch a glimpse of you
But you were nowhere to be seen
So I just cruised on through

Then I drove upcountry
Thought you might be there
Yeah I drove upcountry
Thought you might be there
I think I mighta seen your ride
But I didn't see you anywhere

So back down to Pai'a
You never know who you might see
Yeah back down to Pai'a
You never know who you might see
But there was just a bunch of bliss-drunk hippies
Where oh where can you be?

Now I'm back on the west side
Think I'll go to the beach
Yeah I'm back on the west side
I think I'll go to the beach
'Cause it's your turn to come lookin' baby
But you know I ain't that hard to reach
Track Name: Om Namah Shivaya (Ulysses)
Lyin’ by the lake in a little wood hut listenin’ to Mason
Tryin’ to understand what he means when he says
That Ulysses can explain everything
I don’t have it here
Nor have I ever read it
Guess that’d be a good place to start

Dreamin’ on the dock yesterday
Sun was purifyin’
Pulled out all of the rottin’ roots
Inside me that were dyin’
Now I’m filled with space
Though not sure what to do
So I sing another song for you

Om om namah shivaya om

Starin’ at the sky in a Northern Night
Tryin’ to piece together
All the puzzle parts that I gathered up
From the songs of my sisters and my brothers
I think if we could just pool all the knowledge
We’d all find what we are looking for

Om om namah shivaya om
Track Name: I Left My Heart in San Francisco
I left my heart in San Francisco
I left my heart in San Francisco
I left my heart in San Francisco
But I am going to get it back

I lost my way in San Francisco
I lost my way in San Francisco
I lost my way in San Francisco
Yeah I feel right off the track

Then I walked away from San Francisco
Then I walked away from San Francisco
Then I walked away from San Francisco
Right into that ocean blue

But I'm going back to San Francisco
But I'm going back to San Francisco
But I'm going back to San Francisco
'Cause that is where that I belong

Well I'm gonna face on up to you little boy
I'm gonna face on up to you little boy
I'm gonna face on up to you little boy
And take back what is mine

Then I'm gonna break your spell in San Francisco
I'm gonna break your spell in San Francisco
I'm gonna break your spell in San Francisco
And cast one of my own

Then I'm gonna walk the streets of San Francisco
'Till I find my heart in San Francisco
I'm gonna be on track in San Francisco
When I face on up to you
Track Name: More Than Friends
Baby why you do me like that
You think you're pretty smart
The only thing I think you know how to do is
Break my heart

Baby why you treat me so mean
Why can't you play nice
'Cause first you're burnin' like Sammy McGee
Then you're cold as ice

You know you're making me lose my mind
Not just once but time after time
Why can't you just decide once and for all
How many times do I have to fall?
C'mon

Baby why you playing these games?
You know you're for me
I think it's time that you just opened your heart
And set your spirit free
You gotta set your spirit free

You know you're driving me straight up the wall
How hard is it to pick up my call?
You know I just wanna see you again
We both know that we're more than friends
C'mon
Track Name: Sweet Mornin' Love
you're an angel in disguise
with curls like cupid
and starlight in your eyes
you're a willow in the wind
you sway away from me
but you always sway back again

baby i missed you so much
i'm in ecstasy
when i feel your gentle touch
did you come from above
oh sweet mornin' love

baby you're a wild rose
you grow so free how you found me
only heaven knows
although you're a mystery
what you have revealed has somehow set me free

can i do the same for you
open your heart/take away the pain/and make you new
when times get tough
i need your sweet, mornin' love

you're a candle in the night
at my darkest hour
you are my guiding light
and even when you cause me pain
the tears that fall they are like
a sweet summer rain

'cause they wash away my doubt
and help me figure
what this life is all about
i can't get enough
of your sweet
mornin' love
Track Name: Blue Angel
I first met you at the laundromat
You were with your girl
To you I was just washing clothes
To me it was the world
'Cause you looked up at me with great blue eyes
As I said hello
And then you walked back out the door
Dreamin' down the road

Blue angel
Blue angel
Tell me who you are
'Cause you know my heart and you read my mind
And you shine just like a star
You saved me once and you saved me twice
So I just have to say
Thank you for your kindness
And thank you for your grace

The next time that I saw you
I was naked by the sea
Letting all the poor lost souls
Attached to me go free
You told me that you cut your foot
But it would heal in time
And then we laughed at all the craziness
Of walkin' down the line

Chorus

You stopped me on the corner
of Castro and 18th
Just to let me know that you're still
Watching over me
I don't know what the heck you are
But I know that you're real
It's not something I can explain it's just
Something I can feel

Chorus
Track Name: I Just Had To Say
I had to tell you that I love you
So I wrote you down this song
Couldn't say it outloud
Outloud it just comes out all wrong

Had to tell you that I need you
Even though I think you know
'Cause you're the one who makes it all right
All right you make me lonesome when you go

Had to tell you that I love your sweet smile
I just wish I'd see you more
'Cause darlin' you're everything that I have ever hoped for
And I just had to say

I had to tell you that I'll miss you
When I'm there on the road
But my friend the moon'll keep me safe
And your friend the sun'll keep me warm

I've never known a love like this
I can feel it in my soul
'Cause I'll my life I've been so broken broken broken
Oh you make me whole
And I just had to say

Had to tell you that you're perfect
Perfect enough for me
'Cause you're the on that opened my heart
Oh I was blind but now I see
