On and On 03:19
On And On - David Elias You can rise above it Hardly even touch it Leave a promise on my door You can whisper to it As if you really knew what Left a message on your door On and on On and on On and on You can trust the bottle Everyone will follow Silent as a shadow through that wall Memorize their faces Through those empty places Nothing can repair a broken wall On and on On and on On and on Ah these walls Ah these walls Ah these walls You can rise above it Hardly even touch it Leave a promise on my door You can whisper to it As if you really knew what Left a broken message nothing more On and on On and on On and on

Summer Skies 02:42
Summer Skies - David Elias I'm older than my older brother While justice falls on deafened ears One hand points out roads to recover on The next one hastens heaven near Don't deny the subtle message Don't fall hard on good old times As you defy the right of passage From this old world to endless summer skies Recall them 40 days Recall them 40 days We call them 40 days The truth defies the gentle spirit These chimes unwind beneath steel clouds The closer days of youth get near it The harder it becomes to feel real proud Recall them 40 days Recall them 40 days We call them 40 days Don't deny the subtle message Don't fall hard on good old times If you decide the right of passage From with this old world to endless summer skies Summer skies

On The Loose 02:45
On The Loose - David Elias On the loose you fear not flames of truth On the loose savor misspent youth Go ye back To the wild As a tree And a child With your faith On your sleeve In the eye of the evening star On the loose forget your footprint past On the loose nothing has to last Feel the rock bearing down Hear the sea cycle round Catch the sun you just found In the eye of the evening star On the loose you fear not flames of youth On the loose savor misspent truth Go ye back To the wild As a tree And a child With your faith On your sleeve In the eye of the evening star Go ye back To the wild As a tree And a child With your faith On your sleeve In the eye of the evening star

The Sky Line 03:19
The Sky Line Words and Music by David Elias – 2/16/02 If you want to see an angel Better walk real slow If you want to meet a stranger Forget the ones you know If you want to see the sky Take a walk on down the line If you want to fall in love You can do it anytime It all came clear when I Laid above the rain If she’ll keep me here Then I’ll be in love again If you want to write a poem Become a hummingbird If you need another home Find a tree with hay to burn If you want to spell your secret Warm your hands and jump on in The window looks inviting But the vision is within It all came clear when I Laid up in the rain If she keeps me here Then I’ll be in love again If you want to learn a new step Seek the shore alone If you want to try the two-step Whisper close and slow If you want to touch the sky line Lean against me here We’re in the minute now With lots of time to spare It all came clear when I Laid up by the rain If she keeps me here Then I’ll stay in love with rain

Surrender in November, 2004 (a voting song)  - by David Elias 8/25/04 ~ davidelias.com   There's something wrong in America We sure come undone since the millenium Nothin ever felt so bad As when we waged a war on old Afghanistan I'll buy your oil if you buy mine, or better yet Let's smoke a pipe of peace sometime One thing's for sure it's the end of the line For the GOP in ol' DC...it's time they're   Ready to surrender in November Ready to surrender in November now   And one more thing my country  'tis of thee Let's talk about the things that really keep us free Hey how about a little privacy Don't go and lend me books then pin a tail on me What I love about the USA Is the choice to say what I want to say Not some patriot to tell me where and when to pray Or to search my home on any given day... they'll be   Ready to surrender in November Ready to surrender in November now   There's something wrong with America We sure come undone since the millenium We've been ruled by fear that doesn't disappear Between the media and all those Wall St. Bears And here's another big idea Imagine weapons that aren't even really there I don't think that's what John Lennon had in mind But Comes A Time when it's voting time...they'll be   Ready to surrender in November Ready to surrender in November now   So here's to those purple waves of amber grain Not some family feud with old Saddam Hussein Or some Saudi escort in a private plane There's more to life than just the money game Our fearless leader doesn't hang so tough Everytime the going gets a little rough America we sure deserve some better stuff George go give it up I think you've had enough... you'll be   Ready to surrender in November Ready to surrender in November now

Down A Hill 03:31
Down A Hill – D. Elias Look away sunny time It's alright with me I don't know where I been It's sure been nice to see you And while you're gone On your way Keep me in your eye Say a prayer Sing a song Remember me next time Cause a slow boat is riding on a hill Slow boat is riding on a hill Don't try to knock it You sure can't dock it No need to stock it it is always filled If you could hock it it would grease your pocket It is a slow boat it's riding on a hill And when it's warm In the fall Bring a breeze for me I don't care Where it blows At land's end or at sea And while you're gone On your way Keep me in your eye Say a prayer Sing a song Remember me next time Cause a slow boat is riding on a hill Slow boat is riding on a hill Don't try to knock it You sure can't dock it No need to stock it it is always filled If you could hock it it would grease your pocket It is a slow boat it's riding on a hill On a hill On a hill Down the hill

"Square One" - Tom Petty Had to find some higher ground. Had some fear to get around. You can say what you don't know. Later on won't work no more. Last time through I hid my tracks. So well I could not get back. Yeah my way was hard to find. Can't sell your soul for peace of mind. Square one, my slate is clear. Rest your head on me my dear. It took a world of trouble, took a world of tears. It took a long time to get back here. Tried so hard to stand alone. Struggled to see past my nose. Always had more dogs than bones. I could never wear those clothes. It's a dark victory. You won and you are so lost. Told us you were satisfied, but it never came across.

about

Songs that didn't appear on releases anywhere else but still want to be listened to. Some old and new favorites of mine that ended up as wallflowers for all the reasons wallflowers become just that. Here they are rounded up together to keep each other and you good company.
