Every Moment

Music by Dave “Ace” Case and James Dower
Lyrics by Dave “Ace” Case, James Dower and Amy Elise

Baby, what time did you creep in the house last night?

I didn’t hear you when you slipped into bed.

Third time this week you were out with the girls

I’ve had no tenderness since I don’t know when

There you go again pointing the finger

Dreaming visions of me up to no good

Television’s the only thing working here

On the couch with your smokes and your beers

I don’t know who you are anymore love

Every moment you seem farther away

I don’t know where to look how to find you

Was I just dreaming when I thought we would stay in Love

If I sat at the table would you sit down beside me?

If I opened my heart would you walk out the door?

If I spoke would you know how to listen?

You used to hear me but you don’t anymore.

So many words but nothing is spoken

Same old story without any change

Dreams are gone, the record is broken

We can pretend but it’s just not the same

I don’t know who you are anymore love

Every moment you seem farther away

I don’t know where to look how to find you

Was I just dreaming when I thought we would stay in Love

Lay‘em Down Pete

Lyrics and Music by Dave “Ace” Case

Oh Treat see ‘em flying through the heat

Will you lay ‘em down Treat, will you lay ‘em down

Oh Treat see you yellow and sweet

Will you lay ‘em down Treat, will you lay ‘em down

It’s so breezy above

I can see clear enough

I’ve got wings up above

Just to float feels like love

Oh Treat see ‘em flying through the heat

Will you lay ‘em down Treat, will you lay ‘em down

Oh Treat see you yellow and sweet

Will you lay ‘em down Treat, will you lay ‘em down

Lord this tower is so high

Through the smoke I see sky

Think I’ll drop down below

There’s nowhere else to go

Oh Treat see ‘em flying through the heat

Will you lay ‘em down Treat, will you lay ‘em down

Oh Treat see you yellow and sweet

Will you lay ‘em down Treat, will you lay ‘em down

Oh Treat it’s a west wind, Treat

Will you bring ‘em down Treat, will you bring ‘em down

This heat is killing me, for the love of Pete, for the love of Pete

Oh … I’m cryin’ out, I’m flyin’ out loud

The Beach Is Closed in Lonelyville

Words and music by Dave “Ace” Case

The last of the swallows has headed south

The radio fades in and out

The song you were singing won’t get wrote

‘Cause you’re just about to miss your last boat

The light’s burned out, its getting dark

The dog’s so old, that she don’t bark

The cat’s run off, it’s had its fill

The beach is closed in Lonelyville

The rules and regulations state

There’ll be no bathing when the close the gate

Well we post the rules up, in this town

So we’ll always have a target we can got shoot down

And the Irish are a merry race

Just start swimming, you’ll find the place

The sea is deep, its deeper still

When the beach is closed in Lonelyville

Lonelyville, Lonelyville

Lonelyville, Lonelyville

When fish can walk, and pigs can fly

When I’m young and pretty as a butterfly

When the war is over, and the banks don’t steal

When you and your stone heart have learned to feel

When life is fair, and five is ten

When you return my love, well then

The walls will fall, and wounds will heal

I’ll leave this place called Lonelyville

Lonelyville, Lonelyville

Lonelyville, Lonelyville

The summer’s gone, goodbye until

We meet again, in Lonelyville

Ma I’m Comin’ Home

Music and Lyrics by Dave “Ace” Case

Ma I’m comin’ home

All my friends are gone

I’m comin’ home, ma

I’m all alone

Got no base to run to

No ball to throw

I’m comin’ home, ma

How my day has flown

Oh a little while is all we have

Oh a little bit – so bring it on

Oh a little bit of time – we spend together

Oh a little bit – before our love is gone

Ma I’m comin’ home

All my friends are gone

Everywhere is strangers

And I’m getting cold

I got no dog to run with

No hill to climb

I’m comin’ home, ma

I do believe its time

Ma I’m comin’ home

All my friends are gone

Everywhere is strangers

And I’m growing old

I got no dog to run with

No hill to climb

I’m comin’ home, ma

I do believe its time

Ma I’m comin’ home

All my friends are gone

I’m comin’ home, ma

I’m all alone

Got no base to run to

No ball to throw

I’m comin’ home, ma

How my day has flown

That Ain’t The Way To Do It!

Music by BB King

Lyrical adaptation by Dave “Ace” Case, James Dower, Amy Elise

Hey baby wont you pick up the phone

You sent me a text and left all alone

That ain’t the way to do it

That ain’t the way to get along

Well, we had a good life and had it all so swell

Then your status update sent me straight to hell

That ain’t the way you do it

That ain’t the way to get along

You tweet & you twitter that we’re a mess

In a hundred and forty characters or maybe less

That ain’t the way you do it 

That ain’t the way to get along 

Telling all the world about your plight

You know you like to tweet me but you ain’t tweetin’ me right

That ain’t the way to do it 

It aint the way to get along 

I’m for romancing try and understand

I’m from the old school , I’m a sentimental man

That is the way to do it 

That’s the way to get along.

Put a giggle in your google put your thumbs away

Throw it out the window, roll me in the hay

That is the way to do it 

That’s the way to get along.

Day Dawns Clear

Music by Dave “Ace” Case and James Dower

Lyrics by Dave “Ace” Case, James Dower and Amy Elise

Winter’s wind wakes me

Nature’s own alarm

Open the blinds to see

Dirt on the wind swept snow

The radio says freezing rain

This coffee is cold again

Again for me

But then I think of spring

When the day dawns clear

(Seeds of hope down in the ground)

They were nurtured with our tears

(In this sleepy old railroad town)

And so we take our place

(In the light that’s all around)

And so we rest our faith

(In the hope that we have found)

Some day on this ground

Besides our bleaching bones

A relic will be found

A shinny high tech phone

Fossilized in stone

The things that we’ve once owned

This life will pass for me

And will pass for us, but for now

I think of Spring

Lyrics by Dave “Ace” Case, James Dower and Amy Elise

Winter’s wind wakes me

Nature’s own alarm

But then I think of spring

When the day dawns clear

(Seeds of hope down in the ground)

They were nurtured with our tears

(In this sleepy old railroad town)

And so we take our place

(In the light that’s all around)

And so we rest our faith

(In the hope that we have found)

Some day on this ground

Besides our bleaching bones

A relic will be found

A shinny high tech phone

Fossilized in stone

The things that we’ve once owned

This life will pass for me

And will pass for us, but for now
