Sing me another song

John Lyons

As she looks in the mirror, puts on her makeup smokes another cigarette
Said I'll have the usual - he sees her lookin' says let me pay for that
Ohh but he knows better yeah but he just can't help himself
when he sees her in that sweater he starts thinking to himself

Buy me another drink sing me another song,  This game goes on and on (and on and on)
Buy me another drink sing me another song, This game goes on and on

The Blues Moved In

John Lyons

It's a rainy Sunday morning, I woke up all alone... nobody by my side no...no messages on the phone
Laying there thinking, What the hell should I do? It happened all in a dream... But that's now come true

Ten miles east of here, She's waitin' on a southbound train I’ve got a cold feeling I’ll never see her face again
And there's a warm Florida wind blowin' against my cold skin the night that she moved out ... the blues moved in

Bluestar Highway

John Lyons

Windows down, got my tunes cranked up, flick my cigarette into the wind, I drink from my cup
There’s a curve ahead, no time to think I shift down into overdrive and my eyes don’t blink

Crusin’, Crusin’ Bluestar Highway

Now I’m comin’ up on Deadman’s Curve Deer in my sight it’s fight or flight and I had to swerve
I see one headlight comin' right at me So I make my move in the nick of time I barely missed a tree

Crusin’, Crusin’ Bluestar Highway

Waiting for you

John Lyons

I get up every day don’t know what to do, put on my shirt my pants and shoes 
Brush my teeth, comb my hair, try real hard to get somewhere 
I go to work, I ride that train then after that I go home again 
Everyday's the same, nothin’ ever change, I got one thing to you to say

But I keep waiting, waiting for you 
Yes keep waiting, waiting for you 

Blink Of An Eye

John Lyons

Stoned on rum and coke that night - He asked her do you have a light She said hang on I think I might - Walk with me
Out into the night they went - He picked on her French accent He said my last ten dollars spent - Talk with me
He told her stories in great detail - See her smile for a while Then she heard the sirens wail - Time rolled by in the blink of an eye

Under The Stars

John Lyons

This is one of those nights I wish would never end We could lay here Until our souls blend
Look up at the stars In the sky tonight

Let's take this time To enjoy each other To kiss and caress And love one another
Your lips press to mine And our feelings show

Let me be with you Dancing again
Under the stars tonight With you my friend My lovely friend Dancing again

"...Lyons is an exceptional singer, songwriter and storyteller...John Lyons is the real deal!
