A Force To Be Reckoned With

All songs written by Joe Dickinson

 

Miss You, Always Will

You changed my life for the better

I just wanted you to know

You challenged me to be a better me

You challenged me to grow

I wish you weren't gone

I wish you were still here

I miss you

I always will

I got the job that I never would have gotten

If you hadn't led me down that path

Your constant love and encouragement

Inspired me to act

I wish you weren't gone

I wish you were still here

I miss you

I always will

I meet plenty of people

And plenty of the people that I meet

Aren't half bad

But they can't hold a candle

No they can't even compare

To the best friend I ever had

I wish you weren't gone

I wish you were still here

I miss you

I always will

 

Heavenly Eyes

Come to my bed

Heavenly eyes

We can watch the sunset

And then watch the sunrise

Drifting through days

Feeling less like myself

More like a bottle on the back of some shelf

Come to my bed

Heavenly eyes

We can watch the sunset

And then watch the sunrise

The point is not this

The point is not that

The point is to be where you're at

The point is not this

The point is not that

The point is to be where you're at

Come to my bed

Heavenly eyes

We can watch the sunset

And then watch the sunrise

Come to my bed

Heavenly eyes

We can watch the sunset

And then watch the sunrise

We can watch the sunset

And then watch the sunrise

We can watch the sunset

And then watch the sunrise

 

A Force to Be Reckoned With

Come down from your window

I want to see you again

And I don't want to wait

Not even for an hour

You're beautiful

I want you to know

I am a force to be reckoned with

You ain't seen nobody like me yet

You'd better believe

You're beautiful

And I already know

You are a force to be reckoned with

I ain't seen nobody like you yet

You'd better believe

 

Ponder the Passing of Time

It's morning somewhere

She says this morning

To herself

In the middle of her bed

The birds are singing

The bells are ringing

She's lost

Again in her head

Neglected and abandoned

Out of place and out of her mind

She stares out the window and watches the wind blow

She ponders the passing of time

I have so many worries

She says as she hurries

To get where she doesn't want to go

The traffic is creeping

She wishes she was sleeping

But sometimes you can't just say no

There must be some reason I came here

She looks to the heavens for a sign

She's making connections

Among her reflections

She ponders the passing of time

I'm going to be ok

She tells herself every day

Love is illusion

She says in confusion

I listen while holding her hand

In the distance there's laughing

And then I hear clapping

Mixed in with some high school bands

Through chaos and degradation

I make a promise to always be kind

Whatever the weather we'll make it together

We'll ponder the passing of time

Whatever the weather we'll make it together

We'll ponder the passing of time

I'd Rather Be Drinking

Wine With You

 

I never see the sunrise anymore

And I can't even remember if I've seen one before

If I did it was when I was small

Back when people seemed so tall

And time was so long

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

Than writing this song

It's easy to forget creation can be so much fun

To remember that nothing you're doing

Has ever been done

So lift up your voice and sing

Go ahead there's no such thing

As right or wrong

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

Than writing this song

I'm dreaming in glimpses and glances and flashes of light

And everything that I believed in

Was brought into question tonight

Up on top of the hill

Through the fog and the rain all was still

All was young

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

I'd rather be drinking wine with you

Than writing this song

Crazy 'Bout Bein' Crazy

 

I'm crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

Tell me what's it cost to be reborn

Do you have to die inside to change your form

And if not then may you be forewarned

That tomorrow you may not recognize me

I'm crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

I feel pain even though I know there's nothing wrong

When the rain beats down all weekend long

I go insane 'cause I'm trying to stay so strong

In the face of day to day reality

I'm crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

My scatterbrain is powered by my scatterheart

And I miss you every minute that we are apart

Why don't you stop running 'round like a chicken in the dark

And get underneath this blanket with me

I'm crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' crazy

'Bout bein' alive

Spring Flowers

 

Spring flowers

Outside my window

I watch them grow

So nice and slow

When we were walking

We were so happy

When did the world unwind?

When did I lose my mind?

Unification

You must be dreaming man

I'm in a semi-demise

Brought on by those I despise

Spring flowers

Outside my window

I watch them grow

So far below

When we were talking

Life was so wonderful

My memories leave me blind

You always were so kind

This occupation

Requires fortitude

They wouldn't understand

Living off the fat of the land

Spring flowers

Spring flowers

Someplace Else

 

Take me someplace else

You say I want to go someplace else

Where will you go

Where will you go

You finally got the job you want

And yet you still feel sad

You still feel bad everyday

You finally live in a place you love

And yet you still get down

You still walk around in a daze

Why

Do you cry

When you know

It could be so much worse

Take me someplace else

You say I want to go someplace else

Where will you go

Where will you go

You finally got a bunch of great friends

And yet you still feel sad

You still feel bad everyday

You finally got a little money to spend

And yet you still get down

You still walk around in a daze

Why

Do you cry

When you know

You're lucky beyond belief

Why

Do you cry

When you know

It's good to be alive

Take me someplace else

You say I want to go someplace else

Where will you go

Where will you go

Feel Better

 

I want you to feel better

I want you to feel good again

No more

Sadness in your heart

I want you to know I care

I want you to feel better

I want you to feel good again

No more

Sickness in your soul

I want you to know I care

I want you to feel better

I want you to feel good again

No more

Sadness in your heart

I want you to know I love you

I love you

I love you

I love you

Choices, Choices

 

Choices choices

We all make choices

They can be good

Or they can be bad

They can make people happy

Or they can make people sad

Choices choices

We all make choices

We can be nice

Or we can be mean

We can all fight

Or we can be a team

Choices choices

We all make choices
