WHEN Lyrics

Flying
Billy Falcon

The poet just stands there, watchin’ life drag itself by
Tryin’ to squeeze a rhyme out of what’s makin’ him cry
He steals from your mouth; he steals from your eyes
Takes what’s dull and dirty, and pours you some wine
He listens like a safe crack for the tumblers to slot
When he gets it just right, the cage door unlocks
And he goes Flyin’
Where no one can find him
Where nothin’ can hurt him
He goes Flyin’

He makes it all up, but somehow he makes you believe
Exactly how he wants it, that’s how it’s gonna read
He don’t like the feel of his feet on the ground
Says maybe that’s why his world’s upside down
With a point on his pencil he’s got control
His well- muscled body no prison can hold
He goes Flyin’
Right out the window,
Over the roof tops
He goes Flyin’
La.la, la la la, la la, la la la, la la
La.la, la la la, la la, la la la ,la la

In between verses, he scared he’s gone dry
Run out of adjectives to describe
The curl of her lip, the crimp of her eye
He sits in his cell until the next time
He goes Flyin’
Where no one can find him
Where nothin’ can hurt him
He goes Flyin’
Right out the window,
Over the roof top
He goes Flyin’

Where nobody’s leavin’
Where nobody’s hurtin’
Where nobody’s dyin’
He goes Flyin’
He goes Flyin’
He goes Flyin’
La.la, la la la, la la, la la la,la la
La.la, la la la, la la, la la la,la la
La.la, la la la, la la, la la la,la la
La.la, la la la, la la, la la la,la la

SUNDAY COMES
Billy Falcon

I’ve got so much stuff to do,
No time for cryin’ over you, ooh, ooh
Sort the mail, pick up the yard,
Change the strings on my guitar, ooh, ooh
So I don’t forget, I’ll make a list
Feed the car and wash the fish
Till I’m so damn dizzy,
I don’t know what day it is

But, when Sunday comes, it’s gonna hurt like hell
It’s gonna break my heart to wake up by myself
I’m gonna go to church
I’m gonna sit alone
I’m gonna say a prayer
I’m gonna drive back home
No, I won’t even know you’re gone
Not till Sunday comes

Oiled up that creakin’ door
Nothin’ round here squeaks no more, ooh, ooh
I gotta get myself in shape
Run in circles; lift some weights ooh, ooh
My friends they ask, I say I’m fine
They ask again ‘cause they think I’m lyin’
When I said I was all right, I was all right at the time

But, when Sunday comes, it’s gonna hurt like hell
It’s gonna break my heart to wake up by myself
I’m gonna go to church
I’m gonna sit alone
I’m gonna say a prayer
I’m gonna drive back home
No, I won’t even know you’re gone
Not till Sunday comes

Tick tock, tick tock, bla, bla, bla
Ob la di bla di bla da

When Sunday comes, it’s gonna hurt like hell
It’s gonna break my heart to wake up by myself
I’m gonna go to church
I’m gonna sit alone
I’m gonna say a prayer
I’m gonna drive back home
No, I won’t even know you’re gone
Not till Sunday comes
Not till Sunday
No not till Sunday comes
Not till Sunday
NO not till Sunday comes
Not till Sunday
No not till Sunday comes
Not till Sunday
No not till Sunday comes

100 Dollar Bill
Billy Falcon

It’s crisp, it’s clean, it’s wide, it’s green
A thousand dimes that fold just fine
When I lived in New York City,
I once found one on the street
I had nothin’ in my wallet when it came blowin’ up to me
It’s gonna make you smile
You know that it will
Everybody loves a hundred dollar bill
Everybody loves a hundred dollar bill

Frank Sinatra gave ‘em out like they were cigarettes
If you got one like that you know that you’d never forget
Throw one out the car window and watch it blow away
If you wanna know for certain you just made somebody’s day
It’s gonna make you smile
You know that it will
Everybody loves a hundred dollar bill
Everybody loves a hundred dollar bill

It can get you a nice dinner, and maybe a movie
Buy yourself a stack of tickets, try to win the lottery
If I got that lucky, I know how I’d spend my day
Walkin’ round givin’ hundred dollar bills away

It’s crisp, it’s clean, it’s wide, it’s green
A thousand dimes that fold just fine
When I lived in New York City,
I once found one on the street
I had nothin’ in my wallet when it came blowin’ up to me
It’s gonna make you smile, you know that it will
Gonna make you smile, you know that it will
Everybody loves a hundred dollar bill
Everybody loves a hundred dollar bill
Sometimes I wish I was a hundred dollar bill

Fall To Me
Billy Falcon
Fall to me by Billy Falcon
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

There’s a snake in the garden among the pretty flowers
Three ugly blackbirds on a roof
Been perched up there for hours
There’s a tear in your skin
A sin, you can’t confess
There’s a broken picket on a fence
Where you keep catchin’ your wedding dress
If everything you look for looks away
You can fall to me
I won’t let you break
Fall to me
I will keep you safe
You know, I’d never let you down
You can fall to me

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

Oh love, it goes through that whole in your pocket
‘Round your neck, it’s just gold,
There’s no picture in the locket
Do you really believe that if you lean on me
Somehow you’re gonna slip right through
Don’t you understand, baby I’m your man
And I’m standin’ here right next to you
So go on, if you want to you can fly
You can fall to me
I won’t let you break
Fall to me
I will keep you safe
You know, I’d never let you down
You can fall to me

So search to see what you can find
It’s a great big world with mountains to climb
No, it don’t matter how high
You can fall To Me
Fall to me
You can fall to me
I won’t let you break
Fall to me
I will keep you safe

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

When
Billy Falcon

When I carried her down that long cold hall
That night walkin’ out of the hospital
When friends and family finally went home
When I realized you were really gone

When the front door closed and I could not breathe
When I was in the hall down on my knees
When she woke up ‘cause she heard me cry
When she asked why God let momma die

To buy her clothes and brush her hair
To tuck her in and say her prayers
Oh sometimes life is so fuckin’ unfair
Yeah, Yeah

You should have been there

When she was at tree in her first grade play
On Christmas mornings and Mother’s Day
When I ran out of gas and fell like such a fool
Me and Rosie hitchhiking to her school

When she came to me with worried eyes
She didn’t have to say, I could read her mind
I just took her hand walked out the door
Held it all the way to the drug store

To kiss her face and dry her tears
To whisper to her, momma’s here
Oh sometimes life is so fuckin’ unfair
Yeah…yeah
You should have been there

When
I didn’t know what to do
When
I needed to talk to you
When
The rain came pouring down
When…when…when…

Momma, you should see her now
Trying on her wedding gown
I don’t want her to see me cry
So I turn away and I close my eyes

Life’s beautiful I wouldn’t change a thing
If you could only hear her sing
Sometimes I make mistakes and I let her down
I sure wish you could’ve been around

When
I didn’t know what to do
When
I needed to talk to you
When
The rain came pouring down
When…when…when…

Don’t Make Me Love You
Billy Falcon

Don’t sit so close, don’t touch my hand
Don’t laugh like that, your doin’ it again
Don’t touch my knee, don’t say my name
Don’t make those eyes if you don’t want the blame
Don’t, don’t,
Don’t make me love you,
I don’t wanna love you
Don’t make me love you again.

Don’t call me up, when I’m drivin’ home,
I don’t wanna feel like I’m not alone,
Watch what you say, watch what you do
No, I won’t sing that song I wrote for you.
Don’t, don’t
Don’t make me love you
Why would you want to
Don’t make me love you again.

I know this place, I know this ache
I know these shaking fingers.
Sure I’m your friend, yea, its ok,
No I’m not trying to push you away.

Don’t,
Don’t make me love you
I don’t wanna love you
Don’t make me love you again

Don’t make me love you
Why would you want to?
Don’t make me love you again

The Boat
Billy Falcon

I built this boat
The best I could
With hands of love
From the finest wood
I braced the bow
I stitched the sail
I blessed every brass screw and nail

Lord, go with her when the sea is angry
Lord, go with her in the raging storm
Lord, go with her when the days are cruel
Lord, go with her when the night’s too long

Studied the stars, searchin’ to find
The safest course, and the kindest tide
Lifted her down the stony trail
I set her in the water, and raised her sail

Lord, go with her when the sea is angry
Lord, go with her in the raging storm
Lord, go with her when the days are cruel
Lord, go with her when the night’s too long

Worrying from the watchtower
As the red sky fades
My heart drops to my stomach
As she tumbles through the waves
She slips past the horizon
That’s when I realize
She was always yours
Never really mine

Lord go with her when the sun is golden
Lord go with her when way is clear
Lord go with her when the whole world loves her
Lord go with her When I’m. no longer..

Lord go with her when the sea is angry
Lord go with her in the raging storm
Lord go with her when the days are cruel
Lord go with her when the night’s too long

God’s For Me
Billy Falcon

There’s a wild dog lyin’ in wait
Lurking in the shadows right outside your gate
Lock the door, stay inside
Life’s under your skin you can’t hide

God’s for me I’ll be ok
What’s the devil gonna do to me
Wake up in the morning and I’m gonna say
God’s for me, God’s for me

Doctor holdin’ up the x-ray
Says he sees a shadow where it shouldn’t be
Suddenly life is up for grabs
I wanna tell the x-ray to kiss my ass ‘

God’s for me I’ll be ok
What’s the devil gonna do to me
Wake up in the morning and I’m gonna say
God’s for me, God’s for me
God’s for me I’ll be ok
Take a deep breathe face the day
Feels so good to say
God’s for me, God’s for me

It’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right

You can take my car, you can take my house
Take all of my hair, the teeth out of my mouth
You can take my confidence, try to break my stride
You can steal my poetry, you can have my pride
I know what Jesus Christ was thinking
When he was crucified

God’s for me I’ll be ok
What’s the devil gonna do to me
Wake up in the morning and I’m gonna say
God’s for me, God’s for me
God’s for me I’ll be ok
Sing it all the way to my grave
Hip, hip, hip-hooray
God’s for me, God’s for me

It’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right

Come on, it’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right, yeah
It’s gonna be all, it’s gonna be all
It’s gonna be all right, yeah

Rare and Beautiful Thing
Billy Falcon

She’s a rare and beautiful thing
Take my treasure I’ll take what she brings
Ill equipped to state her case
I stand here in a state of grace
The first time I saw her face
I swear I heard the angels sing
Ah, and that’s a rare and beautiful, beautiful thing

She’s delicate but mighty like the sea
You can’t pay her price
‘Cause you cant buy what’s free
I can’t pin her down she’s not exact
That’s not to say that she’s abstract
Oh no it’s so much more than that
The things she’ll make you see
Ah, and that’s a rare and beautiful, beautiful thing

She’s my mother
She’s my sister
My sweet baby girl
She’s the one who got away
She’s the one that’s gonna stay

Don’t search your dreams you won’t find her there
On a silver horse with golden hair
A black velvet cat on a diamond chair
A devil down on his knees saying a prayer
If you think those things can compare
You ain’t been listening to me
I said she’s a rare and beautiful, beautiful thing

When You Were Mine
Billy Falcon

Could it be the arms of love are broken
Got weary from the strain and just gave way
This muscle in my chest is it just a token
Beatin’ to remind me of a better day
When you were mine

Seemed like it was always summertime
When you laid me down, oh I slept so sound
Then I’d wake up and look into your blue eyes
Bluer than the blue sky, brighter than the sunshine
When you were mine,
When you were mine
When you were mine

Why’s everyone around me so much younger
Where exactly was it that I lost my place
I don’t feel any different, yea; it’s just a number
Still theses cracks and lines, they didn’t scar my face
When you were mine

Seemed like I was laughin’ all the time
The cradle of your arms, so soft and so strong
These eyes, lookin’ in the mirror,
They were so much clearer
Yesterday when we were…

When I’d wake up and look into your blue eyes
Bluer than the blue sky, brighter than the sunshine
When you were mine,
When you were mine
When you were mine

Sometimes it’s a song that takes me back there
Sometimes it’s a sweet scent on the breeze
I wake up with tears on my face
Dreams can be the cruelest time machine)

When I’d wake up and look into your blue eyes
Bluer than the blue sky, brighter than the sunshine
When I’d wake up and look into your blue eyes
Bluer than the blue sky, brighter than the sunshine
When you were mine,
When you were mine
When you were mine

You Don’t Have To Try
Billy Falcon/Brad Nelson/Phil Roselle

Out of the blue sky, I saw your beautiful brown eyes
You said you liked my jacket and asked me if I had a light
The earth, it moved under my feet, I swear the sun got brighter
You only had to look at me, and I got high

You don’t have to try
You don’t have bend
Don’t apologize; you don’t have to spin
You don’t have to play
You’re better than the game
Sweet baby don’t cry
Love’s your alibi
You don’t have to try

Grace like an angel, shined down and poured you in my life
You got inside, cut through the lonely like a knife
I’ve never known nothin’ like you
What’s wrong with you’s what’s right
What you say, that’s what you do
And that’s why…

You don’t have to try
You don’t have bend
Don’t apologize; you don’t have to spin
You don’t have to play
You’re better than the game
Sweet baby don’t cry
Love’s your alibi
You don’t have to try

Paint your nails, cut your hair
You change the world just being there
You don’t have to,
You don’t have to
You don’t have to try
You don’t have bend
Don’t apologize; you don’t have to spin
You don’t have to play
You’re better than the game
Sweet baby don’t cry
Love’s your alibi
You don’t have to try
You don’t have to try
You don’t have to try

Boggy Key
Billy Falcon

Think I’m gonna go to Key Largo,
Leave this heartache behind
Get a place in Boggy Key, just the dog and me
I know it’s gonna take a little time
Maybe I’ll get a job singin’ Jimmy Buffet songs
In some salty tiki bar
Let the wind and the rum wash me away
They say down there a man can disappear, become somebody new
I wanna be somebody who is not in love with you

Maybe I’ll buy a boat,
Get myself a fishin’ pole
Reel ‘em in and throw ‘em back
I’m done wonderin’ why we couldn’t make it fly
You’ve moved on and that’s a fact
Maybe I’ll write a book about exactly what it took
To make a man like me pack up his whole world and run away
They say down there a man can disappear, become somebody new
I wanna be somebody who, is not in love with you

Maybe I’ll get an easel, a canvass and some paint
Sit by the sea and brush the ocean blue
They say down there a man can disappear, become somebody new
I wanna be somebody who, is not in love with you
Maybe I can be somebody who, is not in love with you

When We Were Beautiful
Jon Bon Jovi /Billy Falcon/Richie Sambora

The world is cracked
The sky is torn
You’re hangin’ in
I’m holdin’ on

I can’t pretend
That nothing’s changed
Living in the shadows of love we made

Back when we were beautiful
Before the world got small
Before we knew it all

Back when we were innocent
I wonder where it went
Let’s go back and find it

Sha la la sha la la hey
Sha la la sha la la hey
Sha la la la sha la la hey

Some dreams live
Some will die
But the you in me is still alive

Am I blessed?
Or am I cursed
‘Cause the way we are
Ain’t the way we were
Back when we were beautiful
Before the world got small
Before we new it all

Back when we were innocent
I wondered where it went
Let’s go back and find it

The world is cracked
The sky is torn
So much less
Meant so much more

Back when we were beautiful
Before the world got small
Before we knew it all

Back when we were innocent
I wonder where it went
Let’s go back and find it
Sha la la sha la la hey
Sha la la sha la la hey
Sha la la sha la la

Sha la la sha la la hey
Sha la la sha la la hey
Sha la la
Back when we were beautiful
