The End 02:24
The End of the Endless Night Verse 1: The way we go is / cold and long. Too far gone now / to right the wrong. Our curves are steep, / our shoulder’s strong, Scream out loud / your silent song. Verse 2: The dreams we’re fed / slip from sane. The hearts we hold / sting with pain. Still no reason / for a sad refrain, Drink the stars / cry bright rain. Chorus: The last one left to write is dreaming, Letting go with one long sigh. When endless night starts a streaming, Bathe your soul in liquid light. Verse 3: All will flow / before too long, Tears of love, / blood of dawn, Our bodies now / all disarmed, Swinging through / true to form. Verse 4: We'll run this road / until we're gone. Feeling good / can't be wrong. Our tears are warm / our will is strong, Break your heart / with joyful song. Chorus: The last one left to write is dreaming, Letting go with one long sigh. When endless night starts a streaming, Bathe your soul in liquid light.

All We Have 02:18
All We Have (Dance with Me) All we have is what we give, healing love forever lives. All our days, what we take, what we hold obscures our way. Come on and dance. Please come and dance with me. Shake it off, let your aching heart soar free. Don't let the pain rearrange your brain. The more it hurts the more you'll change. Nothing wasted, nothing wrong, nothing broken endures for long. Come on and dance. Please come and dance with me. Shake it off, let your aching heart soar free. Come on and dance. Please come and dance with me. Shake it off, let your aching heart soar free.

Surfer Girl 03:55
Surfer Girl Stay away Please stay away, Poison love kills more each day. The sea inside red with pain, bites her skin, cuts through again. Stay away. Please stay away. Needs your love, she pulls away. Dressed in black, black fingernails, smeared black lips, down she slips. Catch the wave that comes to save. Learn to ride that place inside. Hold the gold, make it stay. The surfer Girl is born today. On her board she caught her wave, matters not what the ocean gave. She can fly, turn herself around, land like a kiss, feet on ground. Blackened shell shed that night, colors bleed from broken light, digs her hand into the sand, her aqua eyes, dance with light. Catch the wave that comes to save. Learn to ride that place inside. Hold the gold, make it stay. The surfer Girl is born today.

Ass Squeezing Time (At the Bar Double L) Verse 1 When she makes that switch From red wine to water Then she makes that call To her grown up/ daughter Needs that one slow dance The band plays so well She’ll get what she wants Wants to make a deal The more her heart breaks The more love he’ll feel It's ass squeezing time At the Bar Double L It's ass squeezing time Don't you go and tell Verse 2 When he's been a crying In his beer all night It’s all gone so wrong But he's feel ing right Drags her to the floor Just to dance one more He holds her real tight Working on the deal The more his heart breaks The more love she’ll feel It's ass squeezing time At the Bar Double L It's ass squeezing time No one's gonna tell Verse 3 (Harp Solo by Mad Dog Friedman) The more his heart breaks The more love she’ll feel It's ass squeezing time Who’s a gonna tell It's ass squeezing time At the Bar Double L Verse 4 She takes off his hat Likes him more like that He drinks up his beer Closing time draws /near She squeezes his hand Whispers in his ear He's the luck…..y man Gets to close his deal The more their hearts break The more love they’ll feel It's ass squeezing time At the Bar Double L It's ass squeezing time No one’s ‘round to tell Tag It's ass squeezing time At the Bar Double L It's ass squeezing time Someone’s bound to tell

The Price You Pay by Mad Dog Friedman CR 2013 Rubies sapphire diamonds and gold Had that money, all the money, my hands could hold. Had a nice place, such a fine life, flood stole it away. Ain't nothing mine now, ain't nothing left, but hell to pay. Baby cried, sweet mama screamed when the flood waters came. "Oh Lord," I prayed, wash me clean, just don't wash them away. It's hard to live, so hard to give, even harder to breathe, When you've lost all you love, everything you need. All them riches that shine today Sure ain't worth the price you pay. Your brightest dream is sure to fade The more you hold on the more it slip away. Now she's gone, it's so hard to start over again. I don't know why mean old blues claims to be my friend. I got a song deep in my heart, I still need to sing. It’s all that stops the flood inside the memories bring. It's all changed all brand new now I'm back to stay. All I owned, it owned me, just wasted my day. Them that got, they still got, they got everything. Us without, all we got is what the morning bring. All them riches that shine today Sure ain't worth the price you pay. Your brightest dream is sure to fade The more you hold on the more it slip away. Rubies sapphire diamonds and gold Take that money, it's just money, you'll never take my soul. Next time I build, I'll build my house of heart and stone. I'll make my home /atop the hill, rest my tired bones. All them riches that shine today Sure ain't worth the price you pay. Your brightest dream is sure to fade The more you hold on the more it slip away.

No More 03:11
A shadow crosses her eyes as she goes inside A tangle of snakes and hissing a fang full of lies The girl I loved, suddenly she hides, Our love shed, a skin left behind, How dare I ask Can we slay the dragons of our past? Nothin' hurts like a love that is no more Nothin' heals until you let it go Need to move on let it fall and fade away, The night is stark with illusion, dark shades break my day, Why the ones we love always make us pay and pay I guess some end up that way, Why cry the sky red, Put a smile on the dead, leave the truth unsaid? Nothin' hurts like a love that is no more Nothin' heals until you let it go A shadow cross her eye as she go inside A tangle of snakes and hissing a fang full of lies The girl I loved, somewhere she hides, Our love shed, a skin left behind, Why cry the sky red, Put a smile on the dead, leave truth unsaid?

about

"Out of the Box" is my attempt to break out of my forty plus year old and forty plus song deep 12 bar blues strong box. It represents a challenge that I hope is proving that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Although "Out of the Box" is the working name for this project, the finished CD will have a different title and new artwork. Right now I am leaning toward "Of Heart and Stone" for a CD title. What do you think?
