I want to take an epic adventure Some place mystical like Portsmouth, New Hampshire Meet up with friends, really stir the pot Unleash the real me, ready or not Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? I’m gonna dance with all the girls, drink beer from this here stool Run out to the place next door and play a game of pool Write fourteen songs while the rest of you sleep Embrace what it really means to be me Try to keep up, if you think you can And sing along with me, I learned this one in Army band It’s some kind of funk, or some other name After a while, they all sound the same Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? I’m wanna dance with all the girls, drink beer from this here stool Run out to the place next door and play a game of pool Write fourteen songs while the rest of you sleep Embrace what it really means to be me Somebody really should stop him Those aren’t his drinks you know He’ll get us all kicked out of here Before they start the show I’m gonna dance with all the girls, drink beer from this here stool Run out to the place next door and play a game of pool Write fourteen songs while the rest of you sleep Embrace what it really means to be me

You have a great way of saying the same thing over and over I'm not going anywhere else in the world I'm so excited about this and it will take the day Before I see the world the same as you Live in the morning, hold on to the moment The only thing that would make this better for me Would be to know just what I should do With the same thing over and over

Here I stand on the edge Looking down below Thinking of the way we were And why you had to go Words I wish I could take back Ringing in my head Wanting to rewrite the script With other lines instead So I'll try to convince myself I can fly And I can make it back to you If I try Replay the arguments Far too many times Try to prove who's right or wrong When we know the blame is mine Find myself standing here Looking off the ledge Thinking of a leap of faith And all those words you said So I'll try to convince myself I can fly And I can make it back to you If I try So I'll try to convince myself I can fly And you might take me back If I try

Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Open up your eyes and straighten out a crooked line Which pole will you discover? Secret agent, working undercover Keep quiet, don’t give your self away Let them know you’ve got nothing else to say Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Open up your eyes and straighten out a crooked line Speak in code if you say anything Leave them baffled without a decoder ring One direction then turn and go the other way A different person in the night than in the day Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Tap-Tap, jump to the other side Open up your eyes and straighten out a crooked line Just close your eyes and go along Here here, slip this on Bite down and shut your eyes A new you will materialize

You tell me What you want me to say Replace my words Change every phrase Turn my meaning Back in on me Help me see What you want me to see Take a minute to consider what you'll say Take a minute consider that you might have to say you're sorry some day Take a minute to assess the situation Take a minute to think if you'd like to do things another way What if you're wrong? Did you give that any thought? And if you are wrong Do you know the damage that you've wrought?

Hello sunshine Good to see you today Hello sunshine I’m so happy to say Just thought you should know I love you so This thing we feel Is oh so real If I could design a perfect day for me Seeing you is how it starts Because nothing makes a perfect day Like keeping you in my heart Hello sunshine Good to see you today Hello sunshine I’m so happy to say Just thought you should know I love you so This thing we feel Is oh so real They say that I’m a lucky guy Who am I to disagree? Because nothing makes me luckier Than having you with me

You’d like to believe this is free Your decisions belong to you But you know that not the case There’s a price you have to pay Everything has a cost Everything has a cost You signed there on the line Agreed to the deal And suddenly you find It’s all become too real Everything has a cost Everything has a cost
8.
Some times I can’t tell up from down Same hotel, but a different town It blends and blurs becomes the same The cost of admission when you play the game Here I am in a different town I guess I’d better take a look around Talk to you to feel less alone Find a way to feel I’m home The other side of the world Sleep when you can and keep up with the whirl Three A.M., I’m still awake Thinking of all the things I wish I could say I do this all for you What we decided we would do In some time it will come to an end And we’ll be in the same town again

The bagels have declared independence The bakery is up in arms! There’s a flour cloud enveloping everything Don’t trust the macaroons You can say that about anyone Their makeup is who they are It’s not their fault, they were made that way The baker holds the cards The bagels have declared independence The bakery is up in arms! There’s a flour cloud enveloping everything Don’t trust the macaroons It seems so disingenuous Hiding there in plain sight The truth is there if you know where to look On the edge of the night

I don’t want to save the world That’s not what I’m here to do But if I could save time I’d spend it with you Can you save time? Will you save time? So I can spend it with you I don’t need to be a hero I don’t need a big parade I just need to save some time So I can spend it with you Can you save time? Will you save time? So I can spend it with you It doesn’t seem all that hard Spending my days with you So I hope deep in my heart You’ll see this through Can you save time? Will you save time? So I can spend it with you Can you save time? Will you save time? So I can spend it with you

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
