Now Right Now

When you set me off, I set me off.
You’re in the now.  I’m so far off.
When you break my calm, I break my calm.
You’re in the now, I’m ten years on.
If I walk away and gather up,
And gather up my foolish pride,
And cast it all aside, you’ll say,

“Be with me.  That’s all I need.
But it’s got be right now and here with me.”
Now I realize with some surprise,
What all I missed for my whole life.
I sped up the mind and worked so hard,
To get ahead, but ask me why.
If I walk away and gather up,
And gather up my foolish pride,
And cast it all aside, you’ll say,

“Be with me.  That’s all I need.
But it’s got be right now and here with me.”

You don’t know you got all this time left,
But you embrace it more than I can.
How do I learn that I should take this time?

“Be with me.  That’s all I need.
But it’s got be right now and here with me.”

 

Why

All of the useless things I do just to escape,
All of the time that I throw on this pile of waste,
All the excuses to myself I have to make,
Even “feeding my family” starts to sound like a cliché.
Oh, why just go on this way?

All of the blinders that I put in my own way,
All of the noise drowns out the better part each day,
All of the promises to myself I’ve had to break,
When “coming so close” just starts to sound like a cliché.
Oh, why just go on this way?

I will sing you why.
I won’t let it own me
That regret refused to die.
I will sing you why.
I am just not smart enough
To let sleeping dreams lie.

I was untouchable until one sudden day.
The sorrow I used to know was so easy to pay.
If that me was here right now I wonder what he’d say.
As age raises the rent on my old ways,
Oh, why just go on this way?
I will sing you why.
I won’t let it own me
That regret refused to die.
I will sing you why.
I am just not smart enough
To let sleeping dreams lie.

 

Water and Wine

  • Piano, Bass, Cello, and Vocals by Dan Prindle

  • Electric Guitar by Ben Falkoff

I’m sorry that you never met your brother
Sorry that you never knew your mother
Maybe some day you will come to meet us
Maybe some day joyfully you’ll greet us

Maybe I will know your name
But until that day

My water can stay water
And my wine can stay wine
Just tell me that was not my only daughter
Tell me she will come to me in time

I’m sorry cause your mother felt she knew you
I did not understand what could I do
Maybe some day you will come to meet us
Maybe some day joyfully you’ll greet us
Maybe I will know your name
But until that day

My water can stay water
And my wine can stay wine
Just tell me that was not my only daughter
Tell me she will come to me in time

Does fate take time,
Just waiting on the line,
For you to make contact,
While she’s blindly pressing nine?
She hopes to find,
A sympathetic mind,
That’s already aligned.

In your lap you’ll find,
Everything you’ve wished for,
Perfectly aligned.
Your whole life,
All wrapped up and ready,
Ready anytime.

But this is all that I can do

Is fate so blind,
She’s standing there in line,
Just waiting for a turn
At a chance to change your mind.
It will be no crime,
To step right out of line,
While you wish you had more time.
In your lap you’ll find,
Everything you’ve wished for,
Perfectly aligned.
Your whole life,
All wrapped up and ready,
Ready anytime.

But this is all that I can do
