Him & Her On Solid Ground Lyrics

Him & Her On Solid Ground Lyrics

1. Picture of Love © 2013

Brenda Freed & JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

He got out of that truck
She was sittin’ with a friend
He didn’t notice her but
Her heart jumped for him
Later under the stars she said, I think we’ve met
He said, we sang a song together once
and then, she remembered when
They talked ‘til they’d said enough
of good times and the tough
And when you put all the pieces together
it’s the picture of love

Cooking is his forte
She likes to consume
He likes the sunrise
She loves the moon
When life is a mystery, she has the clues
He solves the puzzle that others confuse
She gives him a hint and
he gives her a shove
And when you put all the pieces together
it’s the picture of love

Instrumental

He’s known as a planner,
She acts on the spot
He likes things in order
And remembers what she forgot
He lights her fire and says she floats his boat
He trips her trigger, need I say more,
that’s all she wrote
The time they’re together,
there can’t be enough of
And when you put all the pieces together,

it’s the picture of love, picture of love, picture of love

2. Down to the Pool © 1993

Brenda Freed & Bob Clark,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

I went with my lover for a walk down over the hill
To a place in the valley where the water spilled
Down, down, down to the pool below
Down, down, down where the cool spring flows

We stood upon the mountain
and heard the valley call
Whispers through the cedars
of a place where the water falls
Down, down, down to the pool below
Down, down, down where the cool spring flows

There we talked and we laughed,
sat silent in the sun
We listened to the sounds of the falls
and watched the water run
And as we touched I felt his love,
I saw it in his face
There under that waterfall as we embraced
Down, down, down in the pool below
Down, down, down how I love him so

Instrumental

Take me back to that place down over the hill
And let’s make love again
in the valley where the water spills
Down, down, down to the pool below
Down, down, down where the cool spring flows
How I love to go with my lover down below
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down

3. Gotta Get Over You   © 1999

Brenda Freed & Val Roessling,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

I gotta get over you
I gotta stop thinking it through
I wanna lay down at night knowin’ I did my best
to make it right with you
You moved on right on cue
I gotta get over you

I gotta get over you
But I thought I’d grow old with you
Thought it’d just take some time
Maybe a week or a month or two
to get back in line with you
But you found someone new
I gotta get over you

Looking back, you’ve been gone for a long time
Not in the flesh,
you’ve been gone in your own mind
You say there’s an emptiness inside you
It’s a well I can’t fill,
God knows how I’ve tried, how I’ve tried

Instrumental

It’s not the loss of a dream, It’s the loss of a man
We had a problem, couldn’t find a plan
I’ll go on, my dream’s still alive
The future’s uncertain,
and yet it’s so bright, so bright

Someday I’ll be over you
I’ll stop thinking it through
I’ll lay down at night knowin’ I did my very best
to make it right with you
Now I’m movin’ on too,
I gotta get over you
Over you, I gotta get over you

4. Forward Kinda Gal © 2013

Brenda Freed,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI
Linda Epperson, Linda Epperson, BMI

I don’t look back, I’m a forward kinda gal
I’m waitin’ on that one who loves my style
Taking my time, taking a while
I’ll know you when you find me

Shut the past, close the door
I’m not going where I’ve been before
I got the blues down to my bone
A lonesome kiss left all alone

Ooooo baby whatcha waiting for
I’m so ready, don’t you wait no more
If you got good news,
come on and sing me some blues
I like the way it feels when the blues feel good

Chorus

Living my dreams, so much to share
All of you, somewhere out there
Can you feel it too, like I sure do
The love that’s attractin’ me and you

Tomorrow’s joys I’ll have today
Without you I’ll have ‘em anyway
I’m not a gambler, that doesn’t pay
I won’t throw the dice to see if you’ll stay

Chorus
Instrumental

I won’t be a line-up, cuz me, myself and I
Won’t compete for love no one could ever buy
Don’t ask me to explain it, I won’t tell you why
If you can’t taste the sweetness
in a slice of cherry pie

Chorus

I’m a forward kinda gal, I don’t look back
I don’t make the same mistake twice

5. Sometimes I Feel Red © 2013

Brenda Freed & JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

Sometimes I feel red
Remembering things that I said
I know what I meant
But it doesn’t play well in my head
I wish I could hide
It’s tearing me up down inside
Forgive what I said, Sometimes I feel red

Sometimes I feel orange
And my pumpkin turns into a hearse
I mix up my message
And I say something I can’t reverse
I try to be open to changing some things that I am
Well maybe I’m crazy but I know you know I can

Sometimes I feel yellow
With a brightness that blinds me to you
When I burst your bubble
You act as if that’s nothing new
I step on your moment,
that’s not what I wanted to do
You know me so well-oh, Sometimes I feel yellow

Instrumental

Sometimes I feel purple
With an anger that I can’t explain
It ticks like a time bomb
I’m thunder, I’m lightening, I’m rain
I know that it’s happening
But you tell me that I’m unaware
Well maybe I’m crazy but I know you know I care

Sometimes I feel green
And I know I have so much to learn
Don’t give up on me
You know one day it will be your turn

Together we’ll see
the rainbow that we’ve all become
Sincerely, sometimes I’m just me
Forgive what I said
Sometimes I feel red

6. Band of Angels

Mike Cooper

I’ve made mistakes
since the dawn of my time, I admit it ‘cause it’s true
And I have lied when I was out of options,
nothing left to do
My life’s been tried high as the sky,
deeper than the sea
Still I believe there’s a band of angels
watchin’ over me.

Watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me,
watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me

Under stress I’ve been unkind,
though it’s really not my way
I have griped and groaned
and whined and moaned
When there was nothing left to say
And I guess I’ll keep a-stumbling
‘til the good Lord sets me free
Cuz I believe there’s a band of angels
watchin’ over me

Watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me,
watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me

There have been times I guess,
I must confess, I ate from the wrong tree
Still I believe there’s a band of angels
watchin’ over me

Instrumental

I have yet to feel the sign,
ah, but looking back I see
I’ve had my share of chances

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Him & Her On Solid Ground Lyrics

and reasons to believe
Though my soul may be adrift, a drifting out to sea
Still I believe there’s a band of angels
watchin’ over me

Watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me,
watchin’ over me, watchin’ over me

There have been times I guess,
I must confess, I ate from the wrong tree
Still I believe there’s a band of angels
watchin’ over me
There will always be a band of angels
watchin’ over me, Watchin’ over me,
watchin’ over me

 

7. My Oh My © 2013

Brenda Freed,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI
Hamp Brockman, Hamp Brockman Music, BMI

Here I am again I am falling
There you are, That’s where I’ll go
We began when I heard you calling
Near or far, magic overflows

My Oh My, Where have you been?
I never thought I’d feel this again
I love this walking on air
You are my one answered prayer

Here we are, this is nirvana
Each morning light brings a new way
Like the stars that shone upon us
All through the night igniting our day

Instrumental

My Oh My, How long has it been?
Seemed like I wouldn’t feel you again
I love this walking on air
No more an unanswered prayer

Here we are a fire that’s roaring
Forevermore flyin’ high
That magic spark of desire keeps us soaring

Mi amore, My Oh My,
Mi amore, My Oh My,
Mi amore, My Oh My

 

8. A Few Kind Words © 2013

Brenda Freed,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI
Hamp Brockman, Hamp Brockman Music, BMI

A few kind words was all I could say
When time slowed to still, when time when away
To live and not love would be absurd
I gave you my love, you gave me these words

When we first met you shook with fear
Twisted and torn with nobody near
You looked so relieved,
you could finally breathe free
A few kind words, restored dignity

Is it the sunrise or the sunset?
Is it the beginning or the end?
We grow through each moment
and time disappears
A few kind words, begin right here.

Instrumental

One way or another it was your time to go
I left you in peace, I knew you would know
We shared love for a moment that day
One look through your eyes gave it away

Is it the sunrise or the sunset?
Looks like the beginning and the end
We grow through each moment
and time disappears
A few kind words begin right here

We grow through each moment
and time disappears
A few kind words, just a few kind words

 

 

9. Train I’m On © 2013

Brenda Freed & JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

Some might say my life’s been a train wreck
It’s had its curves but I stayed on the main track
It’s hard for some to divert from a plan
I’m switchin’ tracks because I can

You won’t see me in the usual places
I’m in the need for making some changes
I may not always be the same person you know
I’ll still be me however I go

This is the train I’m on,
You’re welcome to come along
So settle in, enjoy the ride
or stand at the station and wave good-bye

Call it foolish, call it crazy, call it what you will
Have you never wondered
what’s beyond the distant hill?
Nothing bad has happened,
no, there’s really nothing wrong
I believe in many places where I can belong

Chorus
Instrumental

It’s certainly okay, how you go, how you stay
You may not need to change
the pattern of your way
But I heard a whistle blow, inviting me to go
New places in my mind, I wanna know

Chorus Repeated

10. Light as a Feather © 1993

Brenda Freed & Bob Clark,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

I felt light as a feather drifting o’er the heather
Dancing on a summer breeze
The moon shown bright
o’er green valley that night
Suddenly reminding me

Of who I am and where I’ve been
And where I’d like to be
Just for one moment suspended in time
Beauty came clear to me
I reached out to hold it in the palm of my hand,
Touched, it was gone again

Love comes and goes and nobody knows
Whether it’s wrong or right
So savor the joy, while you can
It may not pass again

Instrumental

Love comes and goes and nobody Knows
Whether it’s wrong or right
So savor the joy, while you can
It may not pass again

I felt light as a feather drifting o’er the heather
dancing on a summer breeze
Dancing on a summer breeze,
Dancing on a summer breeze

 

11. Sometimes

Terri Hendrix, THM Music, BMI
Lloyd Maines, Artmob Music, BMI

Sometimes, I just wanna lay down and cry
Even when, I have no reason why
Sometimes, I know that I’m hard to understand
I’m more trouble than I’m worth
But you still hold my hand

Come close, go away. I disappear or I stay
Only moonbeams know where my mind goes, Sometimes

Instrumental

I know what I miss when I leave you like this
To be alone feels like a kiss good-bye

Sometimes, I just wanna lay down and cry
Even when I have no reason why
Come close, go away, You know I’m here to stay
Mmmmmmmmm       Sometimes

 

12. Walkin

Ike Eichenberg, Ike Eichenberg Music, BMI

When I come down with a case of the blues
Feelin’ low down like I sometimes do
I don’t have a smoke, I don’t drink me no brew
I head to the river
and lace up my shoes and go walkin
I go walkin and I walk these blues away
And I need to do some walkin today

When my checks come back cuz I got no dough
The boss man says, “It’s time to go”
He says, “Here’s your money, there’s the door”
And my baby tells me he don’t want me no more
I go walkin, I go walkin
and I walk these blues away
And I need to do some walkin today

Well I know JT walks when he feels blue
I mean to tell you I’m a walkin man too
The fat man down in New Orleans
He takes him a walk when his baby is mean

When I come home from work
all uptight and tense
Turn on the tube for those crazy current events
The man on the TV layin’ down the news
That’s when I get the walkin blues
I go walkin, I go walkin

and I walk these blues away
And I need to do some walkin today

Instrumental

Well I know JT walks when he feels blue
I mean to tell you I’m a walkin man too
The fat man down in New Orleans
He takes him a walk when his baby is mean

When I get in my car and I turn on the key
Just to find I got an old dead battery
Get some mail from the IRS
Sayin’ somethin’ ‘bout 1996
I go walkin, I go walkin
and I walk these blues away
And I need to do some walkin today
I need to walk these blues away
And I need to do some walkin today

I’m goin’ walkin

13. Mr. Texas © 2013

Brenda Freed & JB Braden,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

Mr. Texas, have you got a hat
Reach the sky, is it bigger than that
Mr. Texas, if you’ve got a hat
Maybe you’re the man for me

Mr. Texas, have you got a smile
Reach my heart cross a Hill Country mile
Mr. Texas, if you’ve got a smile
Maybe you’re the man for me

Have you got boots
Can you ride, can you shoot
Straight through my heart
Do you mean what you say
That you’ll be mine ‘til the end of time
And never, never stray,
Mr. Texas, if you can do that,
Maybe you’re the man for me

Instrumental

Mr. Texas, have you got a song
Sing it beautiful and I’ll sing along
Mr. Texas, if you’ve got a song
Maybe you’re the man for me

Mr. Texas, is your heart true
Say you won’t ever leave me blue
Mr. Texas, if your heart is true
Maybe you’re the man for me

Chorus

Maybe you’re the man for me
Mr. Texas, maybe you’re the man for me

14. On Solid Ground © 2013

Brenda Freed,
Moondance Treasures Music Publishing, BMI

I’ve been walkin’ and talkin’ to myself
I got a lot going on, sometimes I’m overwhelmed
But I do make it through so I can tell that I’m
Walkin’ on solid ground

When I sit still long enough
to stand what’s inside my head
And make some space to hear
what’s goin’ on in my heart instead
I find a place where I want more time

to be spent to keep me
Walkin’ on solid ground

When I’m walkin’ on solid ground
It’s easier to balance life’s ups and downs
When I’m walkin’ on solid ground
There’s a better chance I’ll learn my
lessons this time around ooo yeah

Well I’m feeling fine in this state of mind
I got a lot of time to let the stars align
And there ain’t nothing wrong cuz I’m doing it right
When I’m walkin’ on solid ground

Instrumental

Walkin’ on solid ground
It’s easier to balance life’s ups and downs
When I’m walkin’ on solid ground
There’s a better chance I’ll find my passion
this time around ooo

If you’ve got something up
that is bringing you down
It’s time for a change, let there be no doubt,
If your feet don’t fit in the life you’re livin’
Get them walkin’ on solid ground.

Walkin’ on solid ground, Yeah hey
Walkin’ on solid ground, feels so good to be

Walkin’ on solid ground, Get everybody
Walkin’ on solid ground
