lyrics

A MEAL OUT OF THE DEAL

-----( first verse )-----
Flown from the nest
on a righteous quest
Cruising up and down main
in the no passing lane

Flying without a net
this is true, and yet
The balance keeps me sane
the beast we all must tame
-----------------------------
I find myself adrift
to Beethoven’s fifth
Following the ripple
looking for a loophole

Going through this again
wrestling with the wind
Soaring like a bird
is what I would've preferred
( Em ) ( A, D,Em ) ////

-----( chorus )-----
All that you can get
in a life you can’t reset
No time to unpack
all possessions that you lack

This is the key
it’s not on your TV
With the kindness that you wield
you get a meal out of the deal
( C, G ) /// ( D, Em )

-----( second verse )-----
The way that we met
is one I won’t forget
On a grocery run
for everything under the sun

I have a hand to lend
get you back on the mend
But I’m always on my guard
crossing hometown boulevard
-----------------------------
You know, it’s not so bizarre
livin' here without a car
We'll take a morning ride
and won’t need no guide

You and me have come to be we
cleaning up after the party
Busy washing dishes
blowing you sweet kisses

( Em ) ( A, D,Em ) ////
( back to chorus )

-----( third verse )-----
In you I confide
from way deep inside
When you get me to talkin'
the direction that you're walkin'

So, I put in my bid
with the people I'm amid
Up through the sand we will sift
each other we can uplift
-----------------------------
Working in the yard
was never supposed to be hard
Out weeding in the garden
you're a master of Zen

Eternally grateful
and keeping it simple
Leave it up to me
singin' loud and hearty
( Em ) ( A, D,Em ) ////
( back to chorus )
