SONG LYRICS

BLUE EYED LOVE

Written by John Gray & Bradley Crow

Gone away, coming back home

Lost into a silver song, and lost into your eyes

Blue eyed love

 

Flyin high, high above

On a blue ridge morn the sun will rise

Coming down into your eyes

Blue eyed love

 

Then I’m gone or I'm leaving

For to come back home again

Then I'll hold you in my arms my love

Till I'm lost in your eyes

Oh I’m lost in your eyes 

Blue eyed love

Love as strong as the trees

A tune old as time, sweet as the breeze

Blown across your beautiful face

Blue eyed love

 

When we sing sweet harmonies

I'll hear your love like an angel’s band

In your beautiful voice

Blue eyed love

 

Then I’m gone or I’m leaving

For to come back home again

Then I'll hold you in my arms my love

Till I’m lost in your eyes

Oh I’m lost in your eyes

Oh I’m lost in your eyes

Blue eyed love 

PROMISED LAND

Written by John Gray & Bradley Crow

She keeps me going

Like nobody’s ever known it

And my love for her keeps rolling

Like this song that I play

 

He keeps me going 

Like nobody’s ever shown it

And my love for him keeps rolling

Like this song that I sing

 

If the stars cease to shine

And the moon to rise

Our love won’t follow the tide

Here I stand

On this my promised land

To say I love you again 

 

As he’s going

Still my love for him keeps growing

Stronger each and every moment

As he slowly rests in peace

 

As I’m going

My love for you has kept me holding 

On to life and you should know

No one could’ve ever loved you more

 

As the stars cease to shine 

And the moon to rise

I’ll be with you in time

There you are

With half of my heart

I’m patiently waiting for you

I’m patiently waiting for you, oh

IF I GO

Written by John Gray, Bailey Warren, & Bradley Crow

Early morning skyline on a big ole city high rise

As I sip a cup of coffee and read the morning news

Cobblestones beneath me, and I feel the city’s heartbeat 

People say it’s busy but it brings life to me

 

If I go

If I go

 

The early morning pines for a late mountain sunrise

Drinking sassafras tea as I walk along the ridge

The chestnut trees above me, they sway so peacefully

A calmness in the breeze that brings life to me

 

If I go

If I go

 

Will the stars in the sky light up like they do back east

Will the blinding city lights or the darkness of a country night

Take them away

If I leave here tomorrow, this place will still follow me

Oh, anywhere I go, the other will remind me of peace

If I go

If I go

 

Will the stars in the sky light up like they do back east

Will the blinding city lights or the darkness of a country night

Take them away

If I leave here tomorrow, this place will still follow me

Oh, anywhere I go, the other will remind me of peace

AS IT WAS

Written by John Gray & Danny Tucker

She looked over the mountain side

A river rushing far and wide

After all these years she stayed

Even time couldn’t take it away 

 

Oh, oh

 

The memories flow like the current

Swiftly they come with assurance

She follows it grows bigger

As she returns down river

 

Oh, oh, oh, oh

 

As time runs its course

Age to age her love pours

She rests with love’s content because

Everything is as it was 

 

Oh, oh, oh, oh

TIP OF THE ICEBERG

Written by John Gray & Anna Zahurancik

SEE YOU IN SEATTLE

Written by Danny Tucker

Driving down Virginia on a Sunday afternoon

My only prerogative is to kiss you under the moon

Time isn’t a factor if I get to see you

I watch the hills roll by and I know I’ll get there soon 

 

It’s the tip of the iceberg 

It’s our first honeymoon

Anticipation is waiting to see you

How far are we gonna go 

Will we ever know?

It’s the tip of the iceberg 

Walkin’ through a vineyard with blackberry wine

I’ll stop to admire you cause you look so divine

In my dreams I hold you, and I whisper you’re mine

Luckily reality comes and follows close behind 

 

It’s the tip of the iceberg 

It’s our first honeymoon

Anticipation is waiting to see you

How far are we gonna go 

Will we ever know?

It’s the tip of the iceberg 

 

It’s the tip of the iceberg 

Tip of the iceberg 

It’s been a while since you moved out

But I still see you in this town

No, I can’t say it’s been fair to me 

Just another time that you had to leave me lonely

 

So I guess I’ll see you in Seattle

It’s the furthest place I’ll get from your memory

I’ll keep fighting this uphill battle

Cause it's better than the heartache you left me

 

Saw it coming from a mile away

Don’t think that could help me with the pain

Now I’m surrounded by these thoughts of us 

But their making it hard to breathe like a cloud of dust

 

So I guess I'll see you in Seattle

It’s the furthest place I’ll get from your memory

I’ll keep fighting this uphill battle

Cause it’s better than the heartache you left me

So I guess I’ll see you in Seattle 

It’s the furthest place I’ll get from your memory

I’ll keep fighting this uphill battle

Cause it’s better than the heartache you left me

 

So I guess I'll see you in Seattle

It’s the furthest place I’ll get from your memory

Oh, I’ll keep fighting this uphill battle

Cause it’s better than the heartache you left me

CHASE THE SUN

Written by John Gray, Danny Tucker, & Bradley Crow

Out on my own 

Ain’t what it used to be 

Give me some home

Give me some company

Cause I feel like I’ve been living all alone

And I can’t love you like I want to on the phone

 

I’ll chase the sun

Lonely nights won’t come

I’ll fall to my knees

Begging you please, please, please

 

I had some thoughts

Thoughts about you and me

Days we had lost

Days that cease to be

And why do dreams about our future seem to call

And why would I give anything to give it all

 

I’ll chase the sun

Lonely nights won’t come

I’ll fall to my knees

Begging you please, please, please

 

I’ve got what I need, but not what I want

I’ve got what I need, but not what I want

I’ve got what I need, but not what I want

 

I’ll chase the sun

Lonely nights won’t come

I’ll fall to my knees

Begging you please, please, please

WANTED MAN

Written by John Gray & Bradley Crow

Last year, my thoughts faded gray

My fear is that I'll go back that way

Am I falling back, am I falling back at all?

Cause there are things I can't recall

The past it can't catch me now

Cause I'm not a wanted man

I'm free, I'm like the wind that howls

The storm across this land

I sit back, relax, and rest again

It's nice to live life with no price on my head

I've been going strong, I've been going on and on

Like I've been doing all along

The past it can't catch me now

Cause I'm not a wanted man

I'm free, I'm like the wind that howls

The storm across this land

The past it can't catch me now

Cause I'm not a wanted man

I'm free, I'm like the wind that howls

The storm across this land

Oh, oh

Let the wind take me

Oh, God won't you save me?

Until then, I'm gonna stay free
