Galveston 04:36
Galveston Music & Lyrics by Ezra Vancil (BMI) I gathered you up in a thousand days from 17 till old and grey throwing shells on the Galveston bay your crying eyes and your heart full of grace Pain tears and a smile on your face a mother's scars that never erase you were so scattered and you felt out of place so I gathered you up in a thousand days Lost causes twist of fate broken hearts and the lies that you hate long drives on a snowy landscape and your eyes by the fire at the lake all that you wanted all that you couldn't’ escape all those convictions that never would take colored candles and Christmas lights I gathered you up on a thousand nights I pictured you in a life without me in someones arms I never could be and you were following the map of your dreams so I gathered you up and I sewed up the seams drove you down to the Galveston bay let you go cause your heart couldn't stay the waves were broken and calling your name I gathered you and I gave you away ---- tuning EABEBE

History Of Love Music by Ezra Vancil Lyrics By Ezra Vancil & Leslie Wills hey babe, I think we’ve had enough there’s a sadness that we can never rise above my heart is heavy to be touched well it’s so crowded in the history of love I made a promise on that wedding day and I was wrong I know, that’s why I couldn’t stay ...but I won’t go I got no reason I could love you just the same with no possession and no believing that I ever owned your name babe when you moved on down the way I didn't even notice we were through there was way too much to say now the conversation lags and there’s nothing left to do I made a promise, but everything has changed I love you, baby ... oh, I know that’s why I couldn’t stay ...but I won’t go I got no reason I could love you just the same with no possession and no believing that I ever owned your name Hey, girl, our history of love is just a boring book on the shelf, a dusty play that someday we will open up and read this final page that we wrote today don’t let me keep you 'cause it just ain't right Don’t worry baby I won’t even put up a fight

Don't Push Me Away Written By Ezra Vancil (BMI) try to Imagine, we’re here just for a day Might as well, because we're passing away maybe we’d wander in some foreign town go to an opera, I'd rent you a gown in all of the chaos and all gods mistakes all for tonight and the look on your face and I'm here, So why can’t you stay Touch me I'm lonely Touch me right there Show me the part of you That nobody dares why play their game They're just lonely too baby it’s just me baby it’s just you Maybe Jesus died for the world All I know is he gave me a girl And I'm here, why don’t you stay let's go to the ocean and play it a song don’t care if it's Galveston That’s where I belong can’t bare the mountains they make me feel small They look down upon you like they just know it all ----- This Verse Section not in this edition just thought I'd put it in ---- Maybe we're stardust monkeys with cars all that want is to be in our arms Cause I'm here, don't push me away imagine, this is all there is i don’t think that's true but sometimes it is maybe we’d wander through an antique store make all our plans for a French country decor ------ Completely broken falling apart God's mistakes Gave me your broken heart And I'm here, you got nothing to say? try to Imagine, there's just a day Wouldn't the fear, just go away Maybe science will figure it out But I don't care how it all came about Cause I'm here, with one thing to say Don’t push me away ----- Drop D Capo 2 fret

POLKA GIRL Written By Ezra Vancil (BMI) VERSE She’s the polka girl from Tennessee, she moves her hips to a different beat When she’s dancin’ all the world is free, she’s the polka girl from Tennessee. So I bought her a drink with extra sauce, I said girl let’s dance till the world just stops I did my jig and the Texas waltz, she said man you can’t dance, but it’s not your fault. See I’m a polka girl from Tennessee, well i move my hips to a different beat, When I’m dancin’ all my world is free, cuz I’m a polka girl from Tennessee. CHORUS We’ll dance around that old oak floor, show me what you’re dancin’ for. Spin around so I can see, the polka girl from Tennessee. VERSE I said hold on now, give me half a chance, Well I buy a book and I learned that dance. And I’d walked the coals to that awful beat If you’d just take my hand and rescue me. CHORUS Dance around that old oak floor, show me what you’re dancin’ for. Spin around so I can see, the polka girl from Tennessee. yeaee-yeah, VERSE So I learned that dance, and I sang that song. And I sang oompah, oompah all day long. Well, it was much too sweet and too much fun, And that’s not me, no I’m the lonely one BRIDGE She’s the polka girl from Tennessee She’s the polka girl from Tennessee And a polka dancer I’ll never be Like the polka girl from Tennessee CHORUS Dance around that old oak floor, show me what we’re dancin’ for. Spin around so young and free, like the polka girl from Tennessee. Yeeeah

Made To Be Mine Lyrics & Music by Ezra VANCIL maybe this world is out of control when tyrants sleep in the house of gold riches I’ve had and found so much more in a hungry man’s dream, for a spiritual girl see how she hides a crystal in hand when I fall in her arms a broken man washes my feet as if I were pure with the broken leaves of her lavender and the sunrise it's at her command and the stars in your eyes part of a plan in the earth, she cries “all is divine,” and,“ babe, you were made to be mine” wise men wonder why we sing when the clock is bent on gravity wisdom I've had, but learned much more when I was made the fool for that spiritual girl see how she burns the bundles of sage like the holy priest in the sanctuary under my heals and over my face behind the veil in the ancient of days and the sunrise it's at her command and the stars in your eyes part of a plan in the earth, she cries “all is divine,” and,“ babe, you were made to be mine” maybe this world is the garden of Eden we get so confused because love is still bleeding pleasures I've had, but oh so much more when I lost it all, for a spiritual girl and the sunrise it's at her command and the stars in your eyes part of a plan in the earth, she cries “all is divine,” and,“ babe, you were made to be mine” === Tuning: long capo fret three, short 3 string capo up side down fret 5

Gonna take a magical ride in the sun today don't need an excuse or holiday to run I've seen better days and a moon lit town and the hardest part is always coming down Some will say I'm slack I'm just fighting the demons back in a world that don't know my name so if it's all the same I'll just hang around Gonna take a magical ride in the sun today don’t know what I’ll find but it wouldn’t matter anyway Well I’ve been on top with a winners crown but the hardest part is always coming down They say I’m turning grey drinking my heart away but my heart is nowhere to be found it was lost when she went into town for just a couple of days Well I tasted love, thought I might drown and the hardest part is just come’n down Gonna take a magical ride in the sun today I might come back, or just far away I fought hard and I stood my ground but the hardest part is always coming down the hardest part is always coming down

Complicated Man Written By Ezra Vancil (BMI) I got all my friends and I don’t need no other kind their hearts are all beating All at once and it feels like mine I’ve been looking for a lover But the odds are pretty slim ‘Cause I’ve been dreaming Of a girl, who is a friend But She don’t really know me She’d never understand She don’t know me I’m going to call her up I’m going to call her up again I got all my money I’m gonna spend it on something nice like a four leaf clover, I found in oak cliff half-price I ain’t trying to get lucky I swear I just need a ride there To her house on Rose St. So I can put it in her hair But She don’t really know me She’d never understand She don’t know me I’m a complicated man She don’t know me Still, I’m driving out Driving out to Rose St. Again I got all my records Categorized by saints like Cohen, and Chris Whitley There’s a pile of those that aint I listen like a sacrament The odds are no one gets the hint But I don’t care ‘Cause they’ve been singing lately For that girl with the lucky hair But She don’t really know me Oh, she’d never understand She don’t know me I’m a very complicated man She don’t know me But maybe she’s the one That can help me Forget who I am ___ Capo 4th fret

Broken King Written By Ezra Vancil I got everything I’d ever need but I need you now more than I ever dreamed the week it whet my appetite for a feast of love on a Friday night the ocean and the beach are one like the mountains and the setting sun there's a cabin that's way up high that's where I drink the potion in your eyes babe, I'm gonna let you down just like every man, I can’t be found but I can make you dream as you kneel beside your broken king the world can keep their righteousness because, in sin, I found the master's kiss oh kids go play with your toys and friends ‘cause your mama's mine till she feels again do I make you feel safe my dear like the world can never find us here when I lay your breast across my needs that's where I find the hope that I'll find me baby babe, I’m gonna let you down just like everybody I just want to be found but you can make me dream as you kneel beside you broken king from nine in the morning till 2 pm we could live a life from birth to end so, rest your mind on a sheepskin rug I don’t say I love cause it’s not enough She said: I won’t be somebody's fool if you run around like a kid in school babe you know we just all mess up and we count our fear more than our luck babe, I’m gonna let you down like every man, I can’t be found but I can make you dream as you knaeel beside your broken king I thought you were the fountain the ocean couldn't hold you We climbed up on a mountain Where my kingdom is to know you oh, babe, I’m gonna let you down Just like everyone I just want to be found I can make you dream as you kneel beside your broken king babe, I'm gonna let you down like, everyone, I got a broken crown oh but I can make you dream As you kneel beside your broken king As you kneel beside your broken king as we kneel beside our broken king ___ capo drop d capo 4th fret
