Song Lyrics

Desert Road

Halley + Jupiter

Open Road

There’s a road that I wanna walk

its gravel and dust 

The sun is there its showing its age

turning to rust

There’s a lusty haze filling my lungs 

I took a taste

and it’s still on my tongue

I love this lovely life 

Even when nothing seems right

I’ll be the peace in the fight

I will love this lovely life

There are stars in the sky

I’m dying to know

I wanna hear each voice 

What do they think what do they sing

I wish I had their poise

There’s a song in the breeze

and a rhythm in the sea 

I wish the whole world

the whole world

was singing with me

The open road and the open sky 

I got a heavy load on an open mind

i close my eyes let the wind blow

Take my life by the soul tell me

where I should go

Desert Road
Woman on a Deserted Road

Halley + Jupiter

Nomad

I was born here in this quiet town 

And I’m facin my fear,

it’s here they’ll lay me down

I don’t know why, I look to the skies 

Can’t put down roots ‘spite all my tries 

I think there’s a nomad

Deep inside my bones

Tethered to no land

Cause this highway feels like home 

And I’ve gone crazy 

Looking for one place 

To make me feel safe and not alone 

So I’m gonna roam

Do you wanna go

Turns out I’m lost and wandering

Towards the sea

do you wanna be lost with me

I like the birds flyin free

Not stuck on the ground like any ol tree

Open Road

Halley + Jupiter

On the Road Again

On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can't wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again
And I can't wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
And we're the best of friends
Insisting that the world keep turning our way

And our way is...

On the road again

Open Road
Open Road
Deck of Cards

Halley + Jupiter

Playin Cards

Do you remember those feelings you hindered

When you hesitated to reveal

Just how amazing you feel

When you’re with me

Eventually we opened up

We were honest with each other

Put the cards on the table a

And we went all in, together

Your hand in my hand

Is the simplest plan

And I’ll let go of everything, but you

Oh but that was so long ago

And the life you once gave me you’re keeping

The team that we built up is breaking

And you say things that you don’t mean

You got caught in a moment

Cause your heart has been wounded

And you’re fighting to hold on

To cards you should fold on

Your hand in my hand

Is the simplest plan

And I’ll let go of everything, but you

Open Road

Intermission 

Refill your drink

Grab more goodies

Run to the restroom

We'll be back on in a few...

Round the Globe

Can we get a sailboat,

chasing down the sunset as we float,

round and round the globe

Salty air and balmy nights,

Guided only by the lights above

And a lot of little love

All the world is out there waiting to explore

And all our troubles here wantin to be ignored

Oh oh oh let's go

 

To India and Ireland round Africa and back again

We don't really need to know, just where we'll go

Maybe Canada then to Brazil

Then through the alpine foothills

All I really wanna know is can we go

Baby can we go

Round and round the globe

 

Set the sails to the wind

I'm not even asking if or when

we're comin back again

Cut the anchor, cast away

No sense waitin for another day

No time left to stay

Cause all the waters out there

need some company

And who could ride them better now

than you and me

oh oh we're home free

 

All the places we could see

Doesn't matter where we'll be

As long as there is you and me

 

Australia & Germany, Japan

and then the Philippians

Puerto Rico & Tobago

Jamaica & to Providence

then up to Maine it just makes sense

San Diego and Hilo

Baby can we go, round and round the globe

Open Road

In the Waiting

I have been waiting all of this time

And I have been praying all along 

For some peace of mind

I thought what I wanted 

Was something right

Turns out what I thought was day

Was really the night 

 

And all I have needed 

Has been in the waiting 

I found a heart beating

Alive and it’s saying 

I can’t seem to find the end

Of the path I am taking 

Cause it keeps windin on and on and on

In the waiting 

 

Don’t miss it mother, don’t miss it dear

Don’t miss it child for like a breath

We’re not long here 

In all of my waiting for us to arrive

Life has been quietly passing me by

Lost Amen

Even though I’ve never seen

water turning into wine,

Doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen

once upon a time,

While I’m down here on this earth,

Walking on this dirt, I still pray

Sometimes when life is coming at ya

a hundred miles an hour

It’s easy to forget to lean

into your higher power

When everything’s a blur

and faith is just a word, I still pray

               

Couldn’t find it in the whiskey

Couldn’t see it through the smoke

But I know it’s out there somewhere

Buried in blind hope

I throw my prayers to the wind,

Till they come back again,

Searching for my lost amen

 

I keep trying to find the reasons why

for all my twists and turns

I keep trying to ride the rapids

under bridges that I’ve burned

Through all the broken hearts,

Slamming doors and battle scars,

I still pray

Amen to the hard roads wherever they may lead

Amen to the mem’ries still in front of me

Amen wherever it might be

Open Road

Steady my Soul

Steady my soul as I try to crawlin

out of this hole where I keep fallin

Wrong place at the wrong time

With the strong man stealing my life

And this all got out of control

Some say that it's ok

close their eyes and walk away

But I can't pretend I don't know

so steady my soul

 

Like a moth to the flame

I am drawn to the place

Where my innocence cannot be sold

But I come up holding shame

from all my worst mistakes

And the incidents I cannot let go

So steady my soul

 

Steady my soul

I'm lookin for freedom

It's taken a toll

These lies I believed in

They sound right in the moment

But the next night I'm broken

Fantasies never console

In my mind I'm hopin

I'll get back what was stolen

Then my barren heart can be whole

So steady my soul 

 

Like a moth to the flame 

I am drawn to the place

Where my innocence

cannot be sold

I come up throwing blame 

With a cold bitter rage 

At the incidents that left me low

So steady my soul

I know who I've been isn't me

And who I was then is not who I have to be

 

Like a moth to the flame 

I am drawn to the place

Where my innocence

cannot be sold

I put on a new name  

And am covered in grace 

From the incidents I don't have to hold

You steady my soul

Soul of the Heartland

You’ve got sixth generation wild west blood

Running through your veins

mixed in with the mud

and there’s a wind swept pride won’t be denied

You can feel it in your bones

Wheat fields and cattle far as the eye can see

and all the dreams you’ve worked for no

they don’t come easily

but you’re right where you belong

what makes you strong

that heaven you call home

In the soul of the heartland

You know this is good land

Never far away from a helping calloused hand

and if we can’t we know Jesus can

Oh save the soul of the heartland

Some kids head to California

and leave their boots behind

but some get up every morning

keep this way of life from dying

There is faith and hope

down every dusty road

one rainfall at a time

When you look across the sky

and see what you’ve been given

that sacred ground beneath your feet

and you’re thankful that you’re living

Open Road

Ericka Corban

Countryside

The blacktop can be mean

The horns honking and the tires scream

Always in someone's way

A bunch of people who need a break

That pace is rough but ya gotta keep up

If you really wanna be someone

The lights of the city are neat

But my heart belongs in the country

 

Where it's just you and me

And this perfect little family

With the tall green grass

The lakes of glass

and your best friends watchin your back

The kids can all run free

And not worry about a thing

That's where I wanna live my life

Yea, In the country side

 

City folk don't get me

I like to ride in my faded jeans

Surrounded by a sea of green

Runnin wild and free

Don't get me wrong

I know a bunch of people who are city strong

And this just ain't their song,

the country's where I belong

 

I can don my heels

And I can get dressed up

But at the end of the day I ain't afraid

of working hard in the muck

 

When it's just you and me

And this perfect little family

With the tall green grass

The lakes of glass

When the kids leave home

they'll wanna come back

and raise a family

Just how it's meant to be

That's where I wanna live my life

Yea, in the countryside

Nicer ;)

Maybe if you could spend a little time 

being nicer, you'd be ok

I bet if you would spend a little time 

being nicer, you'd have a better day

 

We all have our days

And our qwerty little ways

I know you, you’ve got things to do 

Don't forget to laugh

Get the monkey off your back

Share a smile, it'll last for a while

 

Maybe if you could spend a little time 

being nicer, you'd be ok

I bet if you would spend a little time 

being nicer, you'd have a better day

 

This world's dark enough

It could use a little love

So spread the light and brighten it up 

I know you can make

Someone else's day 

So why don't you choose the better way

Well Lived Life (Grandma's Song)

For as long as I can remember

You wore the prettiest thing

A glowing smile was your favorite style

And you showed us how to care

for the simple things

And how to love unconditionally

Lord knows I’m gonna miss all of this

 

But I know there are reasons

There’s times and there are seasons

And you are where you oughta be

Where there’s no more suffering

But when I meet my Maker

I just might ask Him why

You couldn’t stay another day

So I could say goodbye

 

For as long as I can remember

You were there to cheer me on

Every game I ever played

Every song I’ve ever sung

And even when I’d mess it up

And make all my mistakes

You were grinning ear to ear

You loved me just the same

Lord knows I’m gonna miss all of this

Well I think that I might know

Why the good Lord called you home

Cause I’d have grabbed your hand

And begged you not to go

 

But I know there are reasons

There’s times and there are seasons

And I don’t wanna selfishly

Keep you here with me

Because heaven needs an angel

And it’s your turn to shine

Now we’re the ones cheering from the side

And it was sure a beautiful ride

And one well lived life

Beautiful Dreamer

Does it not seem crazy that nothing's for real

You can't touch anything that you can feel 

You spend your time building what you never see

And wonder why people find it hard to believe

 

Beautiful dreamer I know who you are

You were a believer back at the start

The world that you once thought

Might welcome you in 

Has left you out cold

not cared where you've been

Oh dreamer, dream again 

 

You had a fire inside of your soul 

that made us all wonder where it would go

You lay it all out there

Your heart on your sleeve

But they have been telling you lies 

That you shouldn't believe 

 

Beautiful dreamer I know who you are

You were a believer back at the start

And your heart of gold still has treasures untold 

but it's buried in all of your doubt

Beautiful dreamer don't give up now

 

Every note that you've had to sing 

You're tellin yourself this wasn't your dream

A constant reminder of all that's been wrong

You start to feel like this isn't your song

But if you step back for a minute

someday you'll see

It's more than a song...

it's a symphony

Soundtrack

Make a mountain move with the faith in you

Make the waters rise, well up in your eyes

But it don't mean a thing unless it's love you sing

Love is the soundtrack I'm gonna sing

Happy or sad or when I don't feel a thing

Cause when we're lovable, oh it is powerful

You know what I mean

I don't know you and you don't know me

But in this moment we're still like family

Cause it's a crazy world

These days are all a blur

But this love that we sing can be a beautiful thing

We're just a bunch of kids learning how it is

Not sure where to go so we go with the flow

Makin melody, learning how to sing

Love
