Confused 

CONFUSED (by Steve Davis) - from the Zen Fuse Box album Dogs in Helicopters


Woke up on the wrong side of the world again

Last night's choices pounding in my head

A letter bomb was dropped off by my girl, but then

I just can't remember what it said

Confused

I'm Confused

I'm Confused and I don't know what's goin' on

Driving on the wrong side of the boulevard

Barking up the wrong end of the tree

Dealing with a world that's full of disregard

Wondering, "what's happening to me?"

Confused

I'm Confused

Baby used to tell me

All the live long day

She come from Apalachicola 

Ridin' on a bale of hay

She left her ma and pa behind 

Worried and frettin' away

Goin' back to Apalachicola

Goin' back someday

Baby used to tell me

All the live long day

Jimmy cracked corn but I don't care

'Cause my baby's gone away

Now I live on the road

Eatin' nothing but pork n' beans

I…

You Can Have It 

YOU CAN HAVE IT (by Steve Davis) - from the Zen Fuse Box album Zero Down Time

If you want it, you can have it

You can have it, if you want it

If you want it, you can have it

Here it is

 

I don’t mean just anything

‘Cause I don’t have everything

I can’t give you a diamond ring

Do you know what I mean?

 

If you need it, I can get it

I can get it, if you need it

If you need it, I can get it

Here it is

"What about the slide thing?

Forget the slide thing, that ain't gonna work."

 

It's gettin' me nowhere

Where I don't wanna be

It's gettin' me nowhere

That I don't wanna see

It's gettin' me nowhere

And that's alright with me

It's gettin' me nowhere

Where I don't wanna be

It's gettin' me nowhere

LIKE THIS (written by Peter Preston) 

"Wanna tell you a little story, about a girl I know..."
She's cool as the flip side of the pillow
And cold as an Appalachian spring
I have her a touch of my tequila
Now why would I do such a thing?
I don't know
 
Well can you take it like that?
Yeah you take it like that?
Can you take it like that?
Can you take it like this?
Oh man, here she go again...
 
She moved in all of her best

Dreamland 

DREAMLAND (Music by Rich Marcil/Lyrics by Peter Preston)

"What, now? Alright. You know, one day I just sat down
and started thinking about all the things that people told me
about my life, and how I have to do something with my life, 
and make something of my life, and how I have to have a life 
and get a life. If it is to be, it is up to me. Que sera sera, 
Whate'er will be will be. I just started thinking about all that
and I got confused and I..."

All my life
I had just one dream
Just to be
Just be

Roses Red 

ROSES RED (by Peter Preston)

You leave it linger Hard on my ears Watch eyelids lately Welling with tears - And you know That I know That we know That we're no good no more And that pains me, baby - It's just the danger You taught me to fear And I couldn't be gladder Not if I was twins You thought you were bad, girl But look now who wins - I'm steppin' out baby Out on my own The highway runs straightly Wherever I roam - And I don't know Where I'll go Whats the cure But I'm sure I won't blow My good cover, …Read more
