________________________________ 90 Highway Miles - by David Elias 90 highway miles I'll get there when I can Sunset shades my tired eyes I will be down the road again Sorrow sways with the blue walled tires Will they make it round that bend 90 highway miles 90 highway miles 90 highway miles I'll get there if I can 19 days of freedom Catch 'em when I can Border states they invite me in I will be down the road again Swinging low we all agreed To make it round that bend 19 days of freedom 19 days of freedom 19 days of freedom Catch 'em if I can 9 more nights of northern skies Will I sleep soon by and by The wind is down and the moon is high Ain't no time to wonder why Shine a light now don't be shy Will we make it there somehow 9 more nights of northern skies 9 more nights of northern skies 9 more nights of northern skies Well I'll sleep soon by and by 90, 19, 9 and 1 well count me in my dear I'm standing here in an empty field The hay it's all but cleared Give me time to speak my mind Before I lay me down I'm on that road just one more time I'm down that road just one last time I'm on the road one time I'm on the road again I will be on the road one more time I'm down that road just one last time On the road one time I'm on the road again ________________________________

an empty seat (for tom petty, 1950-2017) - by david elias get in the back seat we'll make room headin up the street a wasted afternoon you wore your hair neat but you never groomed grew up in the south’s heat you always kept your cool now there's a back seat in this house of lights now there's an empty seat in this house of lights now there's an empty seat in this house of lights ________________________________

birthday song, take 4 - by david elias It never really was too far Not that you could get there in an automobile Then again it wasn't near Not to mention disappearing clear anyhow Give me your ivory Give me your whale bone Give me your ivory Give me your whale bone You feel a little worse for wear And a little longer in the tooth, my friend You keep a watch with a soldier's stare Ends the song that lingered in your youth too long Give me your ivory Give me your whale bone Give me your ivory Give me your whale bone Cavalier in the cavalcade These events will creep up on to pass you by Happiest of happy days The woodman watches from his roadside And sighs ________________________________

choose to lose - david elias the times roll on these roads unfold along still being put right to the test push me away i'm still inclined to say i'd rather take this day of rest fortune of clouds i'm here to think out loud no matter who is in the crowd chances are good i don't get out without breaking some rules 'bout "not allowed" self-funded dreams published in magazines that never see the light of day dreams live by night with no regard to light it's only on their own they make their way no one denies what comes right from the skies we look to heaven right as rain nor can deny what comes to by and by no need to guess nor to explain like solitaire appearing here and there i can conclude without refrain through some complain they've still yet to regain i'd rather choose to lose again ______________________________________

nail in the sea - by david elias there's a nail in the sea and a shell on the door and nothing in me even less than before if you try to be free you may find yourself poor with a nail in the sea and a shell on the door there's a tide full of rage and a boat lost at sea an unwritten page left for no one to see will the clove scented sage erase all memory of the tide full of rage and the boat lost at sea there's a morning that's clear the waves face the sky everything's near no one's saying goodbye if you listen you'll hear all those tears in my eyes on the morning that's clear and the waves face the sky there's a nail in the sea and a shell on the door and nothing in me even less than before if you try to be free you may find yourself poor with a nail in the sea and a shell on the door __________________________

Nothing 03:30
Nothing - by David Elias Measuring the body Measuring the water Simplifying everything Things you never thought of Leaving all the reasons Leaving minds behind Maple leaves fall through me Fragile paper chimes Gently by the water Kneeling at the stream The source of all that holds me The dream within a dream Stepping through the pages Stepping back through time The silk the stars the hills the farms Lay me in your arms Pull me to the bottom Pull me through your door Silence ticks by Nothing moves Nothing stirs Nothing sleeps Nothing ________________________________

Mainland 03:37
Mainland - by David Elias I looked never faltered Wondered how long Halo, I know I looked and it was gone Maybe someday I'm found among the bodies Able to say no Stable without belief Dissident repent Have faith in my faith Don't look don't cry Be well Bye bye Scholars in red collars Dollars float by an island Red tide won't subside Jump off the Mainland ____________________________

Didn't Want To Know - by David Elias I was running too hard and I was running too late Couldn't get past that first front gate All advice I'd saved to date Went out of my head like some misplaced freight I'd bet all my money on an easy come Didn't stop to think where she'd come from I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young Didn't want to think Didn't want to know I didn't want to know Didn't want to know I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young Didn't want to think Didn't want to know I didn't want to know Sometimes I think that the angel sings When we get knocked out like we're in some ring For the profiteers of just one last fling It's emotional but it don't mean a thing I bet all my money on an easy come Didn't stop to think where she'd come from I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young Didn't want to think I didn't want to know Didn't want to know I didn't want to know I'd seen plenty of streets and I still felt young Didn't want to think I didn't want to know Didn't want to know Did not want to know For all of my smarts at just one clean start I didn't ask myself the most important part Did not want to know I did not want to know I did not want to know ______________________________

Higher Ground - by David Elias I feel the rain come in The smell before the wind Leaves fold down those pale green crowns Yima Yima Yai I watch the river rise Both forks are snake eyes wise Set me down on higher ground Yima Yima Yai I'm back where I came from The trees the old deer run Worn out trails Tuck tired tails Yima Yima Yai I'll meet you up the hill Your hair it's falling still Lay me down on higher ground Yima Yima Yai Those nights were cold and clear And every star hung near Reaching round for higher ground Yima Yima Yai ________________________________

You Roll Right On - by David Elias Coastal waves of inspiration all you have is meditation Trees of fire burn the choir singing for their salvation Hints of glamour girls enamored with their own afflictions Situations complications never mind the contradictions You roll right on You roll right on You roll right on As you roll right by You roll right on Memories of disenchantment paying back the conversation All you owe is paid in full the rest is just hallucination Early water Sunday's daughter ran away no hesitation Where she goes nobody knows, hell to pay in moderation You roll right on You roll right on You roll right on As you roll right by You roll right on Acupuncture found the juncture in between the constellations Heaven knows those bodies glow when forced away from contemplation Witness this with mortal bliss the Gods can't touch our incarnation And after all is said and done You wind up back where you begun Everlasting peace will mark the end of our emancipation You roll right on You roll right on You roll right on As you roll right by you roll As you roll right by you roll As you roll right by you roll Right on _____________________________________
