Dumb Luck 06:42
DUMB LUCK It’s just dumb luck that I would find somebody new I’ve always backed my way through life ’till I backed into you Just an accidental tourist , never knew the path before us Was the greener grass all along It’s just dumb luck that I would find you here with me No matter where I looked there was something I failed to see Happenstance turned out romance is Something better left to chance Though fate’s been known to deal me dirty tricks I think I can bet on love like this It’s my dumb luck babe I seems the gods will smile on some days Dumb luck hey That you could ever feel the same Dumb luck, dumb luck Now things are finally looking up Guess it’s just because of my dumb luck It’s just dumb luck that saved me from the bitter end I’d chased away the big bad clouds and most of my friends Just another anti hero, but added up you make this zero Feel like I could be your number one And this equation makes a happy sum It’s my dumb luck babe I can’t believe it’s going my way Dumb luck hey That you could ever feel the same Dumb luck, dumb luck Now things are finally looking up Guess it’s just because of my dumb luck, oooo These days I could break a thousand mirrors These days nothing I do brings the tears These days, these days It’s just your luck but here’s the really stupid part (Guess the joke’s on me) They passed the buck on me when handing out brains and heart But with your courage I could manage To leave behind the twisted damage Of the life I had so long ago And we could make our way down golden roads It’s my dumb luck babe It seems the gods will smile on some days Dumb luck hey That you could ever feel the same Dumb luck, it’s my dumb luck Now things are finally looking up Guess it’s just because of my dumb luck Written by Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Publishing BMI) Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI)

SUNDAY DRIVING Sometimes I get up in the morning and while the world is yawning I make my escape I shake the blues out my bustle I’m tired of the hustle Give me an escapade Yes there’s a smiling sun, the day’s just begun I’m footloose fancy free If tomorrow we die then today we can ride, so come along with me I want to go Sunday driving Without arriving There’s no place that I have to be And if we go Sunday driving We’ll all be smiling I hope that you come Sunday driving with me We’ll have a Sunday drive, piece of pie, slice of life, killing time Maybe we’ll stop by the park or the beach On our Sunday drive, getting high, you and I, so alive Let’s not forget that this life is so sweet If you’ve got existential nausea and feeling blue because uh’ya Daily grind Just flag me down when I am on your street climb into my rumble seat Leave your woes behind Yes sing a happy song, it’s been way too long I know that you’ll agree If today’s all we got then let’s go and get lost wandering we’ll be Yeah when we go Sunday driving Without arriving There’s no place that I have to be And if we go Sunday driving We’ll all be smiling I hope that you come Get all undone Have some good fun Sunday driving, Sunday driving Sunday driving with me Written by Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI) Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Publishing BMI)

HAIR OF THE DOG Danny the drinker goes on a stinker five times a week or more He’s not a loser His higher power is taking a shower most every day ‘round four He’s just a boozer After a meeting he goes a greeting a step that can’t be ignored 2, 3, 4 His anonymity finds an affinity for friends who are better poured He says, hey Harvey Wallbanger Hi Pink Squirrel, Good evening Mr. Patron Hello Miss Margarita, yes it’s always nice to see ya But I’m taking Bloody Mary home I need the hair of the dog, hair of the dog Hair of the dog that bit me This puppy’s pretty pickled And my lilly liver’s tickled by the hair of the dog that bit me Screwdriver Sally she lives in the valley but she ain’t the girl next door A people pleaser She’s workin’ in Chatsworth a euphemistic soda jerk and some of you know the score No not a teaser When she gets finished with her funny business she heads to the local pub Let’s drink up Everyone knows her bangers and blowers she’ll put a bug in your rug and She says, hey Harvey Wallbanger Hi Pink Squirrel, down the hatch bottoms up! I think I’ll get a Greyhound to my Kamakazi uptown With a B-52 for luck I need the hair of the dog, hair of the dog Hair of the dog that bit me This puppy’s takes a pounding When I’m lost I can be found under the hair of the dog I’ll have the hair of the dog Three more Old Fashioneds and my legs are like swizzle sticks Tom Collins is dancing with one who should never mix I’m three sheets, I’m twisted, I’m twazzed and I’m tossed From wagons a spinning I’m bound to fall of, falling, falling, falling, falling So if on occasion you wake in frustration to someone you’ve never met A total stranger Chewing your arm off won’t take the charm off the one you’d rather forget Dog in the manger You might consider a tonic with bitters next time your on the town Grain or the grapery brewers or bakery but order me one more round And I say, hey Harvey Wallbanger Hi Pink Squirrel, Good evening Mr. Patron Hello Miss Margarita, yes it’s always nice to see ya But I’m taking Roy Rogers home Make mine the hair of the dog, hair of the dog Hair of the dog that bit me That bowser’s pretty brutal And it’s bound to screw your poodle, yes the hair of the dog That dirty rotten stinkin’ hair of the dog Hair of the dog, hair of the dog that bit me This puppy’s pretty pickled And my lilly liver’s tickled by the hair of the dog I’ll have the hair of the dog, a little hair of the dog, give me the hair of the dog Make mine the hair of the dog Written by Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI) Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Publishing BMI)

City Lights 04:43
CITY LIGHTS I see the city lights burning bright
Under an orange colored sky The night is cold and dry and hearts will die Waiting for love in the city lights I came to town on the back of a breeze Looking for fortune and fame I was so wrong, now I’ll never get home Nothing is here but the smoke and the mirrors And the city lights, city lights, city lights Red and blue diamonds, can you hear the sirens? Shimmer glimmer calling you near Come hither, wither, waste all your tears As your years go by in the city lights I see the city lights burning bright Neon will shine in your eyes The night is cold and dark and one more spark is Fading away in the city lights I came to town on the back of a breeze Looking for somebody true I was so wrong, now I’ll never get home Nothing is here but the smoke and the mirrors Of the city lights Red and blue diamonds, can you hear the sirens? Shimmer glimmer calling you near Come hither, wither, waste all your tears as your years go by in the City lights, city lights, city lights, city lights Written By Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI) Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Publishing BMI)

DREAM ON I told a star the desire of my heart But he said go to bed, dream on I tossed a coin in a fountain of joy The reply made me cry, it was dream on Wishes are for fools who don’t know a thing For you have seen the world and know the heartache it brings No one knows the end until the curtain is drawn So try to make the best of it Smile and keep your chin up kid and dream on Wishes are for fools who don’t know a thing For you have seen the world and know the heartache it brings No one knows the end until the curtain is drawn So try to make the best of it Smile and keep your chin up kid and dream on I told a star the desire of my heart The reply made me cry, it was dream on Written by Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI) Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Music BMI)

I gotta hand it to ya, since I knew ya Some things fool ya, but you gotta a way With what you’re doing, there’s something to it’s Getting to me Now baby I can’t name it, but you made it Brought and paid it, seems I didn’t figure You could hang on, I thought you’d go wrong Getting to me Like a derby queen I make the scene I’m not too green, to know a good thing when I see it Win, place or show Betting on the dark horse, who could have known? Nobody else can quite do, day or night do All that you do, setting out the pace But can ya keep up? It takes more than luck Getting to me Steady as she goes ‘cause heaven knows That I’m no rose, I’m trouble But you bring the blue sky when I’m feeling rain I’m striking like lightening but you don’t mind the pain It’s strange that I would want to, ask or plot to Spend the time to see what makes you special Guess I’m buying, all that you’re tryin’s Getting to me I don’t know what it is you think you’re doing I don’t know who it is you think you’re wooing It’s magic that you’re brewing is my cup of tea, I think you can see Well I could hit the high way, wrong or right way Go my own way. but I kinda like it, hope that you keep it up Your little way of, your walk, your wiggle, each day of Could it be love that’s getting to me, getting to me?

Broken 03:16
BROKEN The world is unkind to barefoot fools And although I know I keep breaking my toes anyway The world is too hard on the kids in the yard And although I see I keep scraping my knees in the dirt Getting broken and aren’t we all Every step cant be the best sometimes you’re gonna fall And get broken just like me So pick me up so dust me off I’ll start again if I get broken When I get broken, mmm If I get broken Every time I see the map of bumps and tiny scars I know where where to go and where I’ve been If you see the cracks you might well notice in the dark that Every break is where the light comes in The world is unkind to tender souls But I did not know That I would go join the club The world is too hard and I’ve being seeing stars ‘Cause I fell again But in the end It’s okay To be broken and aren’t we all Every step cant be the best sometimes you’re gonna fall And get broken just like me So pick me up so dust me off I’ll start again if I get broken, mmm When I get broken, la da da If you get broken, mmm When you get broken Written by Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI) Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Publishing BMI)

Getting Old 04:20
GETTING OLD I’m getting old, my looks ain’t what they used to be I’m figure’s fighting gravity, it’s true, then there’s you You’re getting old, no matter what you used to say It’s happening to ya anyway, what can you do? Don’t be blue ‘Cause every silver hair upon your head is gold to me We’ll rock n’ roll in our rocking chairs It’s my Grateful Dead philosophy It’s getting old, when people try to put us down They forgot the block we’ve been around, once or twice, take my advice When getting old, smell the flowers everyday And when the showers come your way, let ‘em by, just step aside “Cause life is like a roller-coaster You can laugh or you can scream (I like to do both) You’ll toss and turn before it’s over and some say it’s all a dream Lah dat dah dat dah dah da da da We roared in our twenties, in our thirties we were just gettin’ by Great big wars in our forties, our fifties pretty nifty In the sixties we all opened our eyes Wait, who’s getting old? My memory’s gone and so the verse Better call us both a hearse real fast, ain’t gonna last ‘Cause getting old is coming sooner than you think So gather rosebuds have drink and break the glass Forget the past, cause even when you fall apart I’ll be there to patch you up Can’t hit the ball out of the park But we still swing and with some luck We’re gonna go out singing Lah dat dah dat dah dah da da da Written by Circe Link (Narccisiphus Music BMI) Christian Nesmith (Neztoons Publishing BMI)

LYRICS & LINER NOTES

DUMB LUCK

It’s just dumb luck that I would find somebody new
I’ve always backed my way through life ’till I backed into you
Just an accidental tourist , never knew the path before us
Was the greener grass all along

It’s just dumb luck that I would find you here with me
No matter where I looked there was something I failed to see
Happenstance turned out romance is
Something better left to chance
Though fate’s been known to deal me dirty tricks
I think I can bet on love like this

It’s my dumb luck babe
I seems the gods will smile on some days
Dumb luck hey
That you could ever feel the same
Dumb luck, dumb luck
Now things are finally looking up
Guess it’s just because of my dumb luck

It’s just dumb luck that saved me from the bitter end
I’d chased away the big bad clouds and most of my friends
Just another anti hero, but added up you make this zero
Feel like I could be your number one
And this equation makes a happy sum

It’s my dumb luck babe
I can’t believe it’s going my way
Dumb luck hey
That you could ever feel the same
Dumb luck, dumb luck
Now things are finally looking up
Guess it’s just because of my dumb luck, oooo

These days I could break a thousand mirrors
These days nothing I do brings the tears
These days, these days

It’s just your luck but here’s the really stupid part
(Guess the joke’s on me)
They passed the buck on me when handing out brains and heart
But with your courage I could manage
To leave behind the twisted damage
Of the life I had so long ago
And we could make our way down golden roads

It’s my dumb luck babe
It seems the gods will smile on some days
Dumb luck hey
That you could ever feel the same
Dumb luck, it’s my dumb luck
Now things are finally looking up
Guess it’s just because of my dumb luck
