A Trip Is Not A Way Out                     © John Birch 2007

                                                                  Country or Rock

50 years ago today

I drove my    Chevrolet

Into a town   just to hear the sound

Of rock 'n' roll    on the radio

 

And all the ladies loved him

He drove them crazy

But what’s he doing now?

He’s pushing up daisies

 

When all your heroes are on heroin

You start to wonder are they genuine

Let me give you a tip

To me, there is no doubt

That, It may be a trip

But it is not a way out

 

I saw the band   the other night

And I thought that they were   quite all right

But when I saw the band walkin’ down the street

Afterwards, they could hardly move their feet

 

When all your heroes are on heroin

You start to wonder are they genuine

Let me give you a tip

To me, there is no doubt

That, It may be a trip

But it is not a way out

 

Let me give you a tip

To me, there is no doubt

That, It may be a trip

But it is not a way out

 

 

Things Change         ©J.Birch 2008.       piano ballad      female singer     brightly

 

We played

And you wrote the tune

I stayed

And you heard, the words

 

And then

There was the other girl

And then

The world

 

Ch.   Things change

        Winter turns to spring

        We rage

        But don’t understand a thing

 

        I’ll stay

        I will brighten up your day

        For no matter how things change                                                                              

        I will always love you                                                                                                      

 

Down,

Down, down deeper down

The sound

Became very loud

 

We raged

But then you turned the page

And then…

Things changed
