Track Name: Busted Wing (Beta)
BUSTED WING
Lyrics & music, instruments, vocals, recording, mix © Sandy Garnett / Chelsea Media

You never see my soul anymore
Come on down and tear my soul out there today
You want me to take my paintbrush and hold it
In the wrong goddamn way
You say pretty things to me, serpentine things to me
Try to rip my dreams right away
But I been hustling find my own way
You taught me that dreams don’t come to those who pay

When I was a liar playing with fire
Always had plenty to say
But now I’ve gone tired of lying by firesides
Resenting the campy games that you play
Lying around in a mountain top penthouse
And living a life that was foreign to me
How can I stand on your lost lover’s land
That you bought with your kisses now blistering me

I won’t go won’t be bought or sold
Come on down there and take my love away
Won’t be turned to stone no I won’t fold
Gonna take my busted wings and fly away

I don’t feel your love anymore
Got nothing to do but drain my heart away
You been charming forever my you’ve been clever
But you ain’t got no more toyboy today
All I ever wanted was you to be truly
But your deceptive ways kept grilling me
Speaking lost tongues with your new precious ones
Snake in the grass just calling me crazy

Deep in your life I sift through the pages
Of fragmented days that collected within you
You cry your alone while you dash for the phone
Run out on your beautiful child without me
You say you’re a mustang a dusty camero
But I see a little girl who lost her way
Want the world on a string to cradle the princess
Running rampant inside her childish dismay

Tired of living your toyboy lies
Nothing to do but take my love away
While you cry you're alone as you dash for the phone
Gonna sail out the backdoor and fly away

Leaving your footsteps by the chill of the moon’s
Cold bloom on a trail while I chased your tail
Crawl right around the hail you beat down
In your frowns that pound me and push me away
Taking better aim at my icicle princess
She turns men to coal to be bought and sold
Fire my light in your cavernous mine
Get out when I find that you plan to bury me

You never see my soul any more
Come on down and tear my soul out there today
You want me to take my paintbrush and hold it
In the wrong goddamn way
You say pretty things to me, serpentine things to me
Try to rip my dreams right away
But I been hustling find my own way
You taught me that dreams don’t come to those who pay

You want me to take my paint brush
And hold it in the wrong goddamn way
I don’t feel your love anymore
Gotta take my busted wings and fly away
Track Name: Sylvie
SYLVIE © Sandy Garnett

In that fifth apartment floor
With the map on the wall
and the white creaky door
The dinner you made
as we sat by the fireplace
Smoking and rolling
our pasts together

Hold your cradle in my hand
Pass my eyes as fast as you can
Alive I sigh and try rise
But your lacy vibe frozen
a spell on me

The dress that you wear
from the fabric you found
Lying around
on a chair that was wound
Around your pretty young frame
with a heart like a lionness
Purring your pretty
sweet soul through me

Sylvie laugh with me
And tell me what you want to be
We’ll dance into the night
Sylvie sing to me
And tell me what you want to be
We’ll dance into the morning light

Wine that you pour
with your delicate hands
In your soft lands
you lead me to dream
While my finger singing
notes on wine glass edges
Circling around love’s sharp hedges

Give you my fire my lonely wolf ways
In from the sunburn
and sharing my world with you
Listening deeply
feel me sweetly
Want my life on your walls
to remember me

Sylvie laugh with me
and tell me what you want to be
We’ll dance into the night
Sylvie sing to me
and tell me what you want to be
We’ll dance into the night

You could be the woman
to steal my heart away
Just another story please

Sylvie laugh with me
And tell me what you want to be
We’ll dance into the night
Sylvie sing to me
And tell me what you want to be
We’ll dance into the morning light
Track Name: Northern Lights Acoustic
NORTHERN LIGHTS
© Sandy Garnett / Chelsea Media

I’m getting restless, my heart’s growing tired
Seasons changing my spirit is wired
Building my castle, with the lessons I wrestled
It’s time to wake myself and taste the light of day
I’ve got to run now, 'fore my mind grows dull and old
Fight conventional wisdom break the mold
While my spirit is long and free
Born a rebel so mysteriously
Tap my fountain of youth and go for a run

Walk with me old friend, don’t be afraid no
‘Cause I want to pick you up and carry you away
When we touch that mountainside
Be inspired and filled with pride
In searching for light we’ll find a dazzling array

I feel a buzzing, crossing the passes
Want to spark some rowdy souls if we are able
My lost hesitation has caved into elation
Throw all them hopes and fears
and dreams out on the table
Spent my years creating, learn to see blankly
Life and love and hearts
and tears all rest inside me
I stand on the shoulders
Of my family and friends now
Take this dusty song and pass it on

Fly with me old friend, don’t hesitate no
Because I want to pick you up and carry you away with me
When we touch that mountainside
We’ll be inspired and filled with pride
Northern Lights will melt the night away

When my brother turns to me and says
You’re the best friend that I had today
I recall that light that shines right through
And keeps me true to stay that way

To be sailing strong on my dreams
And remember when my challenge seemed
A Great Wall to scale that fell right down
When I take my life and made it mine

When I look at the farm stars my old friend says
He’s a shell of a man I say don’t speak that way
You’re a man with a plan moving fast as you can
To grow your children tomorrow

When my father whispers in my ear
All the truth that my youth never strained to hear
As a young man with a heart and a plan
Take his words and pass them on now

Take your life and pass it on
It’s one damn thing you can count upon
Take your dreams embrace that light
With the magic you surf inside tonight
Track Name: Cruzing
CRUZING
©2011 Sandy Garnett / Chelsea Media

When you cruze into my dream around the bend
Dozen years remember way back when
Never thought I’d kiss your face again
Love can weave these broken hearts to mend
Then you cruze out of my life around the bend

When you cruze into my dream around the bend
Tell me that you loved me way back when
Say You're sorry you ran away back then
You say that people never change the lives they spin
Then you cruze out of my life around the bend

When you cruze into my dream around the bend
Tell me that we’re soulmates ‘til the end
You ask me if I’ll make a baby with you
Tell me your so lucky to find me true
Then you craze out of my life without a clue

June you call we fall again
July we light a fire insane
August you break and you run away

Now you dare to ask me how my summer’s been
So I cruze out of your life around the bend
Track Name: Perry Street
PERRY STREET

At the break of day
In the sunrise
You curled around me
As the evening dies

In the morning
After making love
Empty village streets
The leaves fall in your hair

I like to touch you
With my fire eyes
Caress your silky skin
Let you undress my mind

Once in a lifetime
Along the cobblestone
You walk down Perry Street
And you invade my soul

In the afternoon
Lofty lunch time
I twist your auburn hair
Spin me up again

Strike a match in time
reach inside your dress
Take your heart in mine
Feel your breath(‘s) caress

I like to taste you
On my fingertips
Inside the legs of wine
Your scent is on my lips

I hold you near to me
So close its hard to see
Your spirit one with me
Blinded by ecstacy

At the break of night
In the moonrise
You curled around me
As the sunlight dies

In the evening
After making love
Empty village streets
The leaves fall in your hair

I like to touch you
With my fire eyes
Caress your silky skin
Let you undress my mind

Once in a lifetime
Along the cobblestone
You walk down perry street
And you invade my soul
