Broadway at the Keys

  • 1. Lost in the Wilderness

    I never made this world
    I didn’t even lose it
    And I know no one said it was fair
    But they had a garden once
    They had the chance to choose it
    They gave it away including my share
    And now we’re lost in wilderness
    Lost, crying in the wilderness
    And if anyone’s watching it seems they couldn’t care less
    We’re lost in the wilderness

    You follow all the rules
    You swallow all the stories
    And every night you wish on a star
    Dreaming your day will come, trusting in allegories
    And every morning boy look where you are
    Lost in the Wilderness
    Lost, slowly dying in the wilderness
    With no chance of living boy, until you confess
    You’re lost in the wilderness

    Don’t you ever watch the eagle fly to the sun
    And wonder how he got to be so free
    If you ever have you know your journey’s begun
    Hey what have you got to lose boy
    Lost in the wilderness
    And where we are headed boy, I couldn’t guess but
    Off we go without a warning
    Running as we hit the ground
    Where our future lies aborning
    Where our hearts are outward bound
    Till one bright and distant morning
    We may stop and look around
    And there in the wilderness
    Finally we’ll be found

    Don’t you ever watch the eagle fly to the sun
    And wonder how he got to be so free
    What do you got to lose, boy.

  • 2. Friend Like Me

    Well Ali Baba had them forty thieves
    Scheherazade had a thousand tales
    Well, master you’re in luck ’cause up your sleeve
    You got a magic that will never fail
    You got some power in your corner now
    Some ammunition in your camp
    You got some punch, pizzazz, man & how
    And all you gotta do is rub that lamp
    And I’ll say,

    Mister Aladdin, sir
    What will your pleasure be?
    Let me take your order
    Jot it down
    You ain’t never had a friend like me
    Life is your restaurant
    And I’m your maitre d’
    C’mon and whisper what it is you want
    You ain’t never had a friend like me

    Yes, we pride ourselves on service
    You’re the king
    The boss, the shah
    Say what you wish
    It’s yours! True dish
    How about a little more Baklava?
    Have some of column “A”
    Try all of column “B”
    Well, I’m in the mood to help you dude
    You ain’t never had a friend like me

    Can your friends do this?
    Can your friends do that?
    Can your friends pull this out of their little hat?
    (Ah, but can your friends go…
    Your friends may not be able to, but mine can
    Are you trying to be cute with me?
    Always. Crazy!)

    Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
    I’m on the job, you big nabob
    You ain’t never had a friend like me
    You ain’t never had a friend, never had a friend
    You ain’t never had a friend, never had a friend
    You ain’t never had a friend like me

  • 3. Living in the Shadows

    Living in the shadows
    Hiding from the sunlight
    Hiding from the one light
    That might help to guide you
    Hiding from tomorrow
    Hiding from the day
    Only brings a sorrow
    That won’t go away

    Wandering in the darkness
    Living every midnight
    Doesn’t ever rid night
    Of nightmares as love might
    Life is full of dangers
    Strangers every turn
    Living in the shadows
    There’s no way to learn

    The more you learn
    The more you seek
    The more you find
    The more you care
    The more the world is kind

    One thing I can tell you
    Life should be your lover
    Help you to discover
    The reason for being
    Soon you will be seeing
    What you’re all about
    Living in the shadows
    You’ll never find out
    Living in the shadows
    I’ll never find out

  • 4. Not While I’m Around

    Nothing’s gonna harm you, not while I’m around
    Nothing’s gonna harm you, no sir, not while I’m around
    Demons are prowling everywhere, nowadays
    I’ll send ’em howling
    I don’t care, I got ways

    No one’s gonna hurt you
    No one’s gonna dare
    Others can desert you
    Not to worry, whistle, I’ll be there

    Demons will charm you with a smile, for a while,
    But in time
    Nothing’s gonna harm you
    Not while I’m around

    Being close and being clever
    Ain’t like being true
    I don’t need to
    I would never hide a thing from you like some
    No one’s gonna hurt you, no one’s gonna dare
    Others may desert you,
    Not to worry, whistle, I’ll be there

    Demons’ll charm you with a smile, for a while
    But in time…
    Nothing’s gonna harm you
    Not while I’m around

  • 5. Corner of the Sky

    Everything has its season
    Everything has its time
    Show me a reason and I’ll soon show you a rhyme
    Cats fit on the windowsill
    Children fit in the snow
    So why do I feel I don’t fit in anywhere I go?
    Rivers belong where they can ramble
    Eagles belong where they can fly
    I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free
    Got to find my corner of the sky

    Every man has his daydream
    Every man has his goal
    People like the way dreams have
    Of sticking to the soul
    Thunderclouds have their lightning
    Nightingales have their song
    And don’t you see I want my life to be
    Something more than long
    Rivers belong where they can ramble
    Eagles belong where they can fly
    I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free
    Got to find my corner of the sky

    So many men seem destined
    To settle for something small
    But I won’t rest until I know I’ll have it all
    So don’t ask where I’m going
    Just listen when I’m gone
    And far away you’ll hear me singing
    Softly to the dawn
    To the dawn
    Eagles belong where they can fly
    I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free
    Got to find my corner of the sky

  • 6. Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

    Tonight you’re mine completely
    You give your love so sweetly
    Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
    But will you love me tomorrow

    Is this a lasting treasure
    Or just a moment’s pleasure
    Can I believe the magic of your sighs
    Will you still love me tomorrow

    Tonight with words unspoken
    You say that I’m the only one
    But will my heart be broken
    When the night meets the morning sun

    I’d like to know that your love
    Is a love that I can be sure of
    So tell me now and I won’t ask again
    Will you still love me tomorrow
    Please tell me,
    Will you still love me tomorrow

  • 7. Kansas City

    I’m going to Kansas City
    Kansas City here I come
    I’m going to Kansas City, baby
    Kansas City here I come
    They got some crazy little women there
    I’m gonna get me one

    I’m gonna be standing on the corner
    12th Street and Vine
    I’m gonna be standing on the corner, baby
    12th Street and Vine
    With my Kansas City baby
    And a bottle of Kansas City wine

    Well I might take a plane
    Might take a train
    But if I have to walk a yes,
    I’m going just the same

    I’m going to Kansas City, baby
    Kansas City here I come
    They got some crazy little women there
    Oh, you know I’m gonna get me one
    And this is how I’m gonna do it, ya’ll

    (piano solo)

    Well I might take a plane
    Might take a train
    But if I have to walk a yeah,
    I’m going just the same

    I’m going to Kansas
    Kansas City here I come
    They got some crazy little women there
    I’m gonna get me one
    They got some crazy little women there
    I’m gonna get me one

  • 8. One Song Glory

    One song glory, one song before I go
    Glory, one song to leave behind
    Find one song, one last refrain
    Glory, from the pretty boy front man
    Who wasted opportunity
    One song, he had the world at his feet
    Glory, in the eyes of a young girl
    A young girl, find glory
    Beyond the cheap colored lights
    One song, before the sun sets
    Glory, on another empty life

    Time flies, time dies
    Glory, one blaze of glory
    One blaze of glory, glory

    Find glory in a song that rings true
    Truth like a blazing fire, an eternal flame
    Find, the one song, a song about love
    Glory, from the soul of a young man
    A young man, find the one song
    Before the virus takes hold
    Glory, like a sunset
    One song to redeem this empty life
    Time flies and then
    No need to endure anymore
    Time flies, Time dies

  • 9. In My Own Lifetime

    In my own lifetime
    I want to see the fighting cease
    In my own lifetime
    I want to see my sons enjoy the fruits of peace

    While I’m still here
    I want to know
    Well beyond a doubt
    That no one else will lock us in or lock us out

    We have climbed higher
    Much higher than I thought we’d climb
    It’s a long journey
    and even though the end’s in sight
    There’s not much time
    Oh, I want to know that we haven’t built on sand
    Yes, in my own lifetime

    In my own lifetime
    I want to see our efforts blessed
    In my own lifetime
    I want to see the walls come down and then I’ll rest

    Oh this Moses wants to see the promised land
    And every child deserves to have a chance
    In a world that honors every man, every man, yes
    In my own lifetime
    In my own lifetime

  • 10. Anytime (I Am There)

    Anytime you laugh
    Anytime you cry
    Anytime you hear a sound
    When you’re on the grass
    Lying on the ground
    Any time you wash your hands
    I’ll be around

    I’ll be there on the baseball field
    Though I’m well concealed
    I’ll be out there cheering
    I’ll be there in the books you read
    It is guaranteed
    I’m not disappearing fast
    Anytime
    No not any time

    And I am there each morning
    I am there each fall
    I am present without warning
    And I’m watching it all
    Yes I’m watching it all
    Oh, I am there in music
    I am there in sky
    I don’t know why it happened
    But this much is clear
    Anytime or anywhere
    I am there

    Anytime you pray
    Anytime you fight
    Anytime you’ve gained a pound
    Anytime it’s day
    Anytime it’s night
    Anytime the earth moves
    I’ll be around

    I’ll be there in the maple trees
    I’m a summer breeze
    On a perfect evening
    I’ll be there when you celebrate
    When the world is great
    I’ll be waiting by your side
    Anytime
    Yes, anytime

    And I am there each morning
    I am there each fall
    I present without warning
    And I’m watching it all
    Yes I’m watching it all
    Oh, I am there in flowers
    I am there in snow
    I don’t know why this happened
    But this much is clear

    Anytime you cry
    Anytime you sing
    For anything
    I’ll be there
    I’ll be there each fall
    I don’t why this happened
    But this much is clear
    Anytime or anywhere
    Be aware
    Cause, I am there
    I am there
