I know you fly by sometimes

I know you fly by sometimes
Phil Jackson

The gravity keeps me down
Trapped on the ground
I want to fly to you
Up there

The gravity keeps me down
Trapped on the ground
I want to fly to you
Up there in the sky

I know you fly by
Sometimes

Soon when I sleep again
I may see you in a dream
Soaring high on your way through
What shall I do trapped here

Soon when I sleep again
I may see you in a dream
Soaring high on your way through
What shall I do trapped here

You can fly I know you fly close sometimes
Does it make you cry like I do

I watch the turning sky
Washing the air like a machine
In my dream I see you soar
I know you fly by sometimes

I see you in the sunlight
I see you in the sunlight

Sometimes at night you watch me
Sometimes at night you watch me

The gravity keeps me down
Trapped on the ground
I want to fly to you
Up there
In the sky to fly

The gravity keeps me down
Trapped on the ground
I want to fly to you
Up there
In the sky to fly

Maybe if I wait
Maybe if I wait
I will fly when I die

I know you soar by sometimes

I know you soar by sometimes
I know you fly by sometimes

I love you

A Week of Life

A Week of Life

I was born on Sunday
Life shined its light and smiled
I went to school on Monday
To learn not to be a child.

On Tuesday I started working
Found out what Life means
And the River of music
It flowed through my dreams

Wednesday was amazing, I fell in love with you
We were married by Thursday and our children came too.
I was getting older by Friday, I was wiser with means
And the River of music still flowed through my dreams

On Saturday came my grandsons and a granddaughter too.
On Sunday I would die but I will always love you
And the River of music still flowed through my dreams
A Symphony of living, the laughs and the screams

If my life was a week in time
That lasted seven days
I would still be so thankful
In all so many ways

Thankful for the music I shared with all of you
The love and adventures we all had lived through
A week of life, of learning, knowing what love means
The family the friends, the visions and the scenes.

I won’t shed a tear.
No I’ll smile as I die
Because a week of life’s just a wonderful gift
That too soon passes by

Just like me, just like you

JUST LIKE ME, JUST LIKE YOU
By Phil Jackson ©

Train station Announcement “Ladies and gentlemen, the train about to depart from platform seven is the eight fifty five, going to nowhere…”

Saw a girl with bags
And a suitcase on wheels.
She looked sad and in trouble.
She’d broken one of her heels.
She was limping through life
A lot like you and me
Just working to survive
Just working to be free.

Saw a boy, he came to help her
He gave her a smile
Took her bags, took her trolley
And sat her down for a while.
He mended her shoe
Just broke off the other heel
No longer alone she felt happy
She felt real.

Rf:
Trains, full of people,
Going nowhere
Some of them young, some with grey hair.
Some of them happy, some of them blue.
Millions of people
Just like me, just like you.

Guitar solo

Trains, full of people,
Going nowhere
Some of them young, some with grey hair.
Some of them happy, some of them blue.
Millions of people
Just like me, just like you.

Going along our way
Sometimes with friends
Hoping for some luck
Before our journey ends.

Rf

Trains, full of people,
Going nowhere
Some of them young, some with grey hair.
Some of them happy, some of them blue.
Millions of people
Just like me, just like you.

Guitar solo

All of them working
For money to live
Each not realizing
They have so much to give.
Each day-a page
In the book of their time.
Will they ever live their true life
Before the final bell chimes.

Rf:
Trains, full of people,
Going nowhere
Some of them young, some with grey hair.
Some of them happy, some of them blue.
Millions of people
Just like me, just like you.

Some of them happy, some of them blue.
Millions of people
Just like me, just like you.

What’s wrong with me

What’s wrong with me
lyrics by Phil Jackson

This song was written after a talk in a bar with an alcoholic who had lost his partner.

Black and white ceiling
In the WC
I,m on my back. I,m feeling
So unhappy
A big guy comes along,drags me up ..off the floor
Throws me outside and just locks up the door
……….
I call up a taxi ..I know he,ll rob me
Get back to my room ..and I can,t find the key
I wake up its morning ..throw up
Feel the pain
What’s wrong with me ..I,m an alcoholic again
……………….

I go see my friends have a whisky or too
What’s wrong with.. me… so lost without you .
What’s wrong with me now
Why all this pain
What’s wrong with me
I,m an alcoholic again
……..
What’s wrong with me
Simple its true
What’s wrong with me
I,m lost without you
What’s wrong with me …..dont know what to do
What’s wrong with me
I,m lost without you !!

So blue without you

SO BLUE WITHOUT YOU
Phil Jackson 2016 ©

BONES MOAN FROM THE COLD
OF THIS RIDE THAT I’M ON
GONA CRUISE FOR A WHILE
GET A SMILE FROM THE SUN

THE LOAD OF THE ROAD IS WEARING ME DOWN
NO SMILES FOR A WHILE
I WILL STOP AT THIS TOWN

I’M DRINKING A WHISKY
THINKING OF YOU
MY BIKE HAS GONE COLD
LIKE MY FUTURE IT’S BLUE

RF
SO BLUE, SO BLUE, BLUE WITHOUT YOU

I’VE TRAVELLED TOO FAR TO THIS BAR I AM IN
NO FEAR I SIT HERE
IT’S JUST YOU I’M MISSING
I SPEED ON THE LINES
FROM TOWN TO TOWN
I LAY LOW ON THE BENDS
THAT MY KNEE GOES AROUND

DON’T KNOW WHERE I’M GOING
MY HEAD’S IN A SPIN
THINKING OF YOU
AND THE FIX THAT I’M IN

RF
IT’S BLUE, SO BLUE, BLUE WITHOUT YOU

I’M DRUNK IN A BAR
AN OLD MAN STARES AT ME
I RAISE MY GLASS AND I SMILE
AS I REALIZE IT’S ME

I’M FEELING SO TIRED
I’M REFLECTING ON YOU
NOT MUCH FUN
WHEN YOU’RE ALONE
JUST MAKES YOU BLUE

RF
SO BLUE, SO BLUE, BLUE WITHOUT YOU
SO BLUE, SO BLUE, BLUE WITHOUT YOU

You’re behind me now

You’re behind me now

Lyrics Phil Jackson©

My eyes are only looking in one direction
I turn around to look
But I just don’t see
It’s all dark behind me
There’s light up ahead
Seems that up ahead’s
The only place that I see.

Are you behind me now?
Are you behind me now?
Are you behind me now?

Life’s strange.

I know what’s behind me
It was part of my vocation
Not sure of my location
If it isn’t with you

So I just keep walking
Can’t hear you talking
Seems that every corner
Gives a different view.

Are you behind me now?
You are behind me now.
You are behind me now.

Life’s strange.

I see new horizons
I’ve got to keep my eyes on
Everything is new now
It’s so strange.
So I just keep walking
There’s different people talking
Seems that up ahead
Is the only place I see.

So you’re behind me now.
So you’re behind me now.
So you’re behind me now.

Life’s so strange.

You re behind me now.
Yeh You re behind me now
You re behind me now.

Life’s strange.
Life’s strange.

Sleepy feelings

Sleepy feelings

First time I ever saw you
Knew I’d never be the same
It was your face on a photograph
Made an impression on my brain

Funny how love comes along
Bangs heavy on our door
Sleepy feelings of true love
Wake up to sleep no more.

Fate it brought me close to you
To play, to hear you sing
It was then you became
My everything,
My everything.

We met that night, I held your hand
For a gentelman’s “Hello”
My eyes, they couldn’t leave your face.
I knew I had to go.

On a party night
I saw you again,
First time for a while.
You looked so beautiful to me
As you gave me your warm smile.

I met your friends that night
They were so nice like you
I had to leave, I couldn’t stay
But I so ..I so wanted to.

Next time we met I wrote a song
It was full of love for you
A fantasy, but it didn’t feel wrong.
It could all be true, It could all be
Me and You.

I couldn’t hide my feelings anymore.
Good friends was not enough you see.
I knew with all this love I felt for you
Only
True love would set us free.

Funny how love comes by
Kicks down doors that were shut before.
Sleepy feelings of true love
Awake to never sleep anymore.

First time I ever saw you
I knew I’d never be the same.
It was your face on a photograph
Made an impression on my brain.

Funny how love comes along
Bangs heavy on our door.
Sleepy feelings of true love
Wake up to sleep
Wake up to sleep no more.
No more.

Funny how true love comes by
Kicks down doors that were shut before
Sleepy feelings of true love
Awake to never sleep anymore.

Funny how love comes along
Bangs heavy on our door
Sleepy feelings of true love
Wake up to sleep no more.

Funny how love comes along
Bangs heavy on our door
Sleepy feelings of true love
Wake up to sleep
To sleep no more.

The Gambler

The Gambler

I had it all worked out.
I had a clever plan.
But patience is no virtue
For an ordinary man.

I wanted lots of money
I wanted it all and fast
A better life than I had before
For as long as it would last.

Do the crime, avoid the time
It’s not the way to go.
Take a chance, lay it all down
Let destiny take control.

How much will I lose tonight
Not more than I could win
A once in a lifetime gamble
Laying out all I’ve been.

Riding on one number
It’s all that I could choose
Take a chance. Do the dance
Either win or lose.

I had it all worked out.
Tried to be better than I am.
But the odds are all against a win
For an ordinary man.

Keep a hold of what you have
Is the best thing try to keep you cool
Or lose it all
To take a chance is to be a fool
To take a chance is to be a fool

Riding on one number
It’s all that I could choose.
Take a chance. Do the dance
Either win or lose.

Keep a hold of what you have
The best thing you can do.
It’s – win or lose – try to keep you cool.

To take a chance is to be a fool.
To take a chance is to be a fool.
To take a chance is to be a fool.
To take a chance is to be a fool.

Oh, No…

Exercise’m


Exercise’m

Now put your hands on your head
And drop to the floor
This world of ours
Can’t take anymore war

Put your arms out wide
Then scream like hell
If we all work together
They may hear us as well

Who are they?
Well I don’t know
But when the buses come
They all should go

Go somewhere else
Where they’ll fit
To study Peace and Love just a little bit
May be the moon or Mars as well
Or may be pack them up and send them to hell

Put your hands together
Give a round of applause
Because without these fools
There’ll be no more wars.

Put your hands on your head
And drop to the floor
This world of ours
Can’t take anymore war

Put your arms out wide
Then scream like hell
If we all work together
They may listen as well

Who are they?
I don’t know
But when the buses arrive
They all should go

Go somewhere else
Where they’ll fit
To study Peace and Love a bit
May be the moon or Mars as well
Or may be pack them up and send’m to hell

Put your hands together
Give a round of applause
Because without these fools
There’ll be no more wars.

Paris


Paris

She came to me
In a Paris car
Dressed so sublime
Mmm..Ooh lala

We walked and we talked
Stopped to drink wine
The show went on without us
But we’ll catch it next time.

We cried and we laughed
Talking of life and love
Under the stars and the moon
Up above… above

The car came for her
She left around three
I smoked on the terrace
Till the sun awoke me.

(Chorus)
Paris in spring
Love fills the air
My everything
So debonair… debonair…

She came to me..
.
She came to me
in a Paris car
Dressed so sublime
Mmm ooh lalala

We walked and we talked
Stopped to drink wine
The show went on without us
But we’ll catch it next time

We walked and we talked
Stopped to drink wine
The show went on without us
But we’ll catch it next time

We cried and we laughed
Talking of life and love
Under the stars and the moon up above

We cried and we laughed
Talking of life and love
Under the stars and the moon up above

night (autro)

The night was amazing
We loved and we kissed
The night was just Paris
So I sat and wrote this.
