From a Moving Train
Written by gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

I've seen the ides of march
And I've seen the fall of rome
I've seen all kinds of stuff
But I never see my home

If my life-line is
These million miles of track
One thing I know by now
There is no turning back

From a moving train
From a moving train
From a moving train
From a moving train

If every venture was
A path to no avail
I'd still be rolling down
This never ending trail

If we had a destination
In our sights
We would be helpless as
We passed it in the night

From a moving train (hear the engine running)
From a moving train (you can get on board)
From a moving train (hear the motor humming)
From a moving train (see, you've gotta see the light)

And if by chance you find a woman
That you might love along the way
You better hold her tight
Tell her everything's alright
Or she might jump along the way

From a moving train (hear the engine running)
From a moving train (you can get on board)
From a moving train (hear the motor humming)
From a moving train (see, you've gotta see the light)

From a moving train (hear the engine running)
From a moving train (you can get on board)
From a moving train (hear the motor humming)
From a moving train (see, you've gotta see the light)back to top
Wednesday Morning
Written by gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

Wednesday morning was the last time we talked
I guess she figured it was better if she walked
It could've been me just the same
There's no winner in this game
Oh, wednesday morning was the last time we talked

Wednesday evening was the first time she cried
It could've turned out different if I'd lied
Something deep within us all
Sees the writing on the wall
Oh, wednesday evening we didn't talk at all

I've been waiting every evening
Wondering what I'm gonna say
Sometimes life can be deceiving
Wednesday won't go away

It could've been me just the same
There's no winner in this game
Oh, wednesday evening and nothing is the same

(oh) I've been waiting every evening
Wondering what I'm gonna say
Sometimes life can be deceiving
Wednesday won't go away

Wednesday morning, yeah
Sometimes life can be deceiving
Wednesday won't go away

I've been waiting every evening
Wondering what I'm gonna say
Sometimes life can be deceiving
Wednesday won't go away, yeah

Wednesday morning, yeah
Sometimes life can be deceiving
Wednesday won't go away

Town and Country
Written by dewey bunnell and gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

Touched by a butterfly on my way home
Flying who knows where
Walking down that dusty road
Without a care

The sun was shining up in the country
And bells were ringing downtown
Clouds were moving slow and lazy
While I was kicking around

And feeling out the town and the country
Feeling out the town and the country

Up on the hill I got a better look
I watched the river run brown (watched the river run brown)
And then I heard those songbirds singing
The country sound

When I got home I sat in my kitchen
And turned the television on (turned the tv on)
The news wasn't good so I didn't listen
I started clicking around

Thinking of the town and the country
I was thinking of the town and the country

Thinking of the town and the country

In the morning everything will be the same
Open up your world (watch the children play)
In the sun or rain

Thinking of the town and the country
A thinking of the town and the country

I was thinking of the town and the country (fade)back to top
Moment to Moment
Written by gerry beckley and phil galdston, ©1998
Found on human nature.

There was a time I knew
All that there was to know
No one could tell me then
I was wrong

I wasn't strong enough
To see where my weakness lay
The world that you hold so tight
Could slip away

And from moment to moment
Your life can change
There's a storm over the horizon
A sea no one can see

Somewhere around the bend
Right when you least expect
Someone can walk away
With no regret

Leaving an empty space
Breaking a sacred trust
All of your shiny dreams
Begin to rust

Yes from moment to moment your life can change
There's a storm over the horizon
The sea you cannot see

Yes from moment to moment
Promise me you'll never change
Promise me you'll stay the same
Promise me you'll never change

Yes from moment to moment your life can change
There's a storm over the horizon
A sea you'll never see

Yes from moment to moment your life can change
There's a light when the sun is rising
A day after today

Promise me you'll never change (promise me you'll never change)
Promise me you'll stay the same (the same)
Promise me you'll never change

Every moment is a shining light
Every moment is the darkest night
Every moment gotta get it right
Every single moment

Every moment is a shining light
Every moment is the darkest night
Every moment gotta get it right

Every moment is a shining light
Every moment is the darkest night
Every moment gotta get it right
Every single moment

Every moment is a shining light
Every moment is the darkest night
Every moment gotta get it right
Every single moment

Hidden Talent
Written by gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

Just like a person from another world
My eyes can see inside you, little girl
I see things that you don't want to see
I see things you're trying to hide from me

I'm just trying to make you understand
All the ways you can affect this man
From the moment that you came in touch
With the power there to burn so much

You've got hidden talent (yeah)
I bet you're gonna find some hidden talent, oh

You know your past is what's been bugging you
If you're ready girl ... do what you gotta do
Look for your life between the lines
Bad directions and poor designs

You've got hidden talent (hidden talent, yeah)
I bet you're gonna find some hidden talent, oh
Hidden talent (hidden talent, yeah)
Check it out you ... got it, hidden talent, oh

With the advantage of perspective i
See there's more to you than meets the eye
But now the time must come to spread your wings and fly

Yeah (hidden talent) yeah

Hidden talent (hidden talent, yeah)
I bet you're gonna find some hidden talent, oh
Hidden talent (hidden talent, yeah)
Check it out ... you got it, hidden talent, oh

Hidden talent (hidden talent, yeah)
Affair without warning
Hidden talent, mmm (mmm)

Hidden talent (hidden talent, yeah)
I bet you're gonna find some hidden talent, oh

Wheels Are Turning
Written by gerry beckley and dewey bunnell, ©1998
Found on human nature.

Albuquerque will be there in the morning
Purple mountains will rise up from the floor
After that you can just lift up the curtain
And the whole world will be there at your door

Down the road you see the heat waves a waving
All the signs are telling you where to go
And for you, this is a bold invitation
It's all you need, you don't need any more

Those wheels are turning once again

Now the sun is rising out of the ocean
Diesel trucks are flying by on the shore
Yes that's your spirit inside you just waiting
It's time to move, now that much you must know

Step outside and take a breath of the morning (step outside the door)
And the wind will tell you which way to go
You are the needle on the compass for certain
The missing map has come back to your door

Those wheels are turning once again

Thunder in the canyon waking up the night (waking up the night)
Black crow with an indigo glow on the highway

Albuquerque will be there in the morning
Purple mountains will rise up from the floor
After that you can just lift up that curtain
And the whole world will be there at your door

Those wheels are turning once again

Thunder in the canyon waking up the night (waking up the night)
Black crow with an indigo glow on the highway

Barking in the canyon waking up the night
Black crow with an indigo glow on the highway

Those wheels are turning once again
They've always been your truest friendback to top
World Alone
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1998
Found on human nature.

I remember so long ago wondering
Could we stay this way forever
On this carousel turning and laughing
We just wanted to be together

And so we did it
We left on our own merry way
Into this world alone

In the sand at the sea we lay gazing
At the stars up above in the heavens
There was nothing to keep us from playing
We just wanted to be together

Why did we do it
We left on our own merry way
Into this world alone

Little did we know
Where we were going then
And when things got cold
Trying not to pretend

Ooo...

And still we did it
We left on our own merry way
Into this world alone

How were we to know
Things were so simple then
Somehow we lost hope
Falling to earth again

Then came that cold winter's day
When we ended it forever
After everything we used to say
There was nothing to keep us together

And so we did it
Each left on our own merry way
Back to this world aloneback to top
Overwhelming World Suite: Overwhelming World/Come Back/Barstow
Written by gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

[overwhelming world]

Overwhelming world tied up in a knot
Anything you ask is everything I've got
I can't let go
It's all you need
It's all I know

Tiny little girl wakens in the night
Was it just a dream, will she be alright
It's hard to say
There's so much more
Beyond her door

Hidden in the heart buried in the soul
Everybody's wondering if where they are going, they're going alone
Carried on the wind
Up above the stars alone
A spark from a fire ignited a long time ago

[come back]

Every single moment
Every waking hour
I can see your beauty
Like an open flower
Just like a flower

Won't you come back, come back to me
Won't you come back, come back to me
There with your head in your hands
I sware that you don't understand
That you and I were meant to be

I can feel you breathing
As you lay beside me
Nothing but a memory
That you can't deny me
You can't deny me

Every single moment
Every waking hour
I can feel your beauty
Like an open flower
Just like a flower

Won't you come back, come back to me
Won't you come back, come back to me

[barstow]

Barstow, barstow
Meet you in the morning
Barstow, barstow
As the day is dawning

Sunrise out on the freeway in the morning
Meeting you as the day is dawning
Counting the minutes to go

Barstow (barstow), barstow
Showcase of the southland
Barstow (barstow), barstow
Living hand to mouth and

Somewhere on the horizon in the distance
Seeing you there with no resistance
Counting the seconds to go

Sunrise out on the freeway in the morning
Meeting you as the day is dawning
Counting the seconds to goback to top
Pages
Written by dewey bunnell and gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

In this bookcase full of stories
You find some of them are true
Tales of love and glory
Many lives of daring-do
There is mystery and adventure
They lie waiting there for you
So step inside and find the other you

Take the high road tomorrow
But the low road today
Reading other's sorrow
Might just be the only way
The father hears confession
While the mother's feeling blue
These characters do what you want them to

In these pages we consume
Lives in many colors lovers in full bloom
And through the ages words are born
Speaking to the senses lifting the forlorn

There's glamour and dementia
A message from the tomb
Staircase to the heavens
And secrets in the room
When you are riding on that dark horse
To the one that got away
There's no regrets and no dues left to pay

'cause in these pages we consume
Lives in many colors lovers in full bloom
And through the ages words are born
Speaking to the senses lifting the forlorn

Drifting down the river of the make believe
We laugh and grieve
Hoping for an ending of our own design
Where all is fine

In these pages we consume
Lives in many colors lovers in full bloom
And through the ages words are born
Speaking to the senses lifting the forlorn

In these pages we consume
Lives in many colors lovers in full bloom
And through the ages words are born... (fade)back to top
Hot Town
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1998
Found on human nature.

Down in this hot town
At some old cafe tonight
You hear the dogs bay
At the green neon light

It's one hundred degrees
But the heat is free
In this hot town
This hot town tonight

And that there candle
Only adds to the heat
As you sit in your t-shirt
Trying to eat

You watch the waitress, you watch the clock on the wall
And the flies in the window climb up just to fall
In this hot town (hot town, hot town)
This hot town tonight (hot town, hot, hot)

Down in this hot town
Don't know no person to call
And this here cafe
Don't serve no beer at all
Out on the sidewalk
It's cooling down for your feet (cooling down, cooling down for your feet)
But the women are still sweaty and sweet (still sweaty, sweaty and sweet)

So you watch the waitress, you watch the clock on the wall
And the flies in the window climb up just to fall
In this hot town (hot town, hot town)
This hot town tonight (hot town, hot, hot)

It's one hundred degrees
But the heat is free
In this hot town (hot town, hot town)
This hot town tonight (hot town, hot, hot)

It's one hundred degrees (oh yeah)
In this hot town (hot town, hot town)
This hot town tonight (hot town, hot, hot)

(hot town, hot town)
(hot town, hot, hot)... (fade)back to top
Whispering
Written by gerry beckley, ©1998
Found on human nature.

I hear you in my sleep
I've fallen in too deep
Sometimes it's hard to keep
Secrets, secrets

It's like a breath of air
I feel it everywhere
And still I can't declare
Secrets, secrets

Gotta keep whispering on the phone at night
Gotta keep whispering, gotta get it right
Gotta keep whispering 'til the morning light
Secrets, secrets

I need you by my side
Can't say I haven't tried
Sometimes it's hard to hide
Secrets, secrets

Gotta keep whispering on the phone at night
Gotta keep whispering, gotta get it right
Gotta keep whispering 'til the morning light
Secrets, secrets

Gotta keep whispering on the phone at night
Gotta keep whispering, gotta get it right
Gotta keep whispering 'til the morning light
Secrets, secrets

Secrets, secrets

Gotta keep whispering on the phone at night
Gotta keep whispering, gotta get it right
Gotta keep whispering 'til the morning light
Secrets, secrets

Gotta keep whispering on the phone at night
Gotta keep whispering, gotta get it right
Gotta keep whispering 'til the morning light
Secrets, secrets

Gotta keep whispering on the phone at night
Gotta keep whispering, gotta get it right
Gotta keep whispering 'til the morning lightback to top
Oloololo

Found on human nature.

Lala salama
To the masai mara
And asante sana
To kichwa tembo

I'm going oloololo
Back to the world where I'm from
Soon I'll be flying solo
On a heading that follows the sun

Oloololo, oloololo, 'loololo

'cause I've been down from nairobi
Southeast of kisumu
To the waiting savanna
Like a place that I once knew

And the river was flowing
While the crocodile baked in the sun
With the elephant knowing
That a change had already begun

Oloololo, oloololo, 'loololo

Oloololo, oloololo
(lala salama) oloololo (to the masai mara)
(and asante sana) oloololo (to kichwa tembo)back to top
