Track Name: My Lover Waits For Me - Gary Reid Music
Don’t let the howling winds
Steal your heart away,
Don’t let the burning sun
turn your heart to clay.

I’m going where the gentle winds
breeze sweetly across the sea.
I’m going where my lover waits for me

Don’t let the howling winds
Steal your heart away,
Don’t let the burning sun
turn your heart to clay.

I’m going where the siren sings
a sacred melody.
I’m going where my lover waits for me.

-
I have crossed the country side,
sailed across the ocean wide,
just to have you here with me,
-

Don’t let those howling winds
Steal your heart away,
Don’t let the burning sun
turn your heart to clay.

I’m headed to my paradise,
a place where I can be.
I’m going where my lover waits for me.
Track Name: Lost In Her Bag - Gary Reid Music
A simple country girl,
they all said she was pretty,
loved to feel the grass beneath her feet.

Slow life on the farm,
She had never seen the city,
but heard they all moved to a different beat.

One day she went off to find herself,
stole the pack of cigarettes from her daddy's shelf.
Traded in her blue jeans stained with grass.
Hopped a bus to find all the big buildings of steel and glass.

She got lost in her bag
she was looking for a light for her smoke.
Lost in the world and she couldn't find a way she could cope.

A pretty farmer's daughter.
Grew up wild and free.
Spent her days riding horses in the rain.

Now she rushes here and there,
so much to do and see.
Life moves faster than a subway train.

She left to find the things she didn't know.
Didn't realize how much she had to grow.
Now her fingernails are painted, and she wears a fancy dress.
She never realized she could get in such a mess.

Lost in her bag and she can't find a light for her smoke.
Lost in the world and trying to find a way she could cope.

She decided that she'd seen enough.
The city lights were blinding,
and the concrete was so rough.
No more choking on that smoky air.
Back to open skies,
and life that grows with care.

A grown-up woman now,
exploring new horizons,
No longer the innocent country girl.

Back to riding horses,
but world-weary and wisened.
Knows she's found her place in the world.

No longer lost in her back and looking for a lighter for her smoke.
Now she's found her own ground and the future is planted with Hope...
Track Name: Nothing Like The Blues - Gary Reid Music
I ain't got no loving,
no kissing and hugging,
No i ain't got nothing - Nothing Like The Blues.

I ain't seen my baby,
since a week ago maybe,
but I ain't got nothing - Nothing Like The Blues.

I ain't seen my baby since a week ago,
my friends said she took it down to Mexico,
But I'm gonna keep on living worry free,
'cause if she don't come back there's more fish in the sea.

I might not have a dollar,
but you won't hear me holler,
you won't hear nothing - Nothing Like The Blues.

The skies are sunny,
I might see things funny,
but I've never seen nothing - Nothing Like The Blues.

A little gratitude will get you through the day,
even keep you smiling when the skies are grey,
You don't hear me complain, and no you ain't gonna
'Cause I'm living in Southern California...

Hey, Let's Go,
I'm gonna bring you down to San Diego.

No we don't have to worry,
I ain't never gonna hurry,
and I don't get nothing - Nothing Like The Blues.

Well I gotta keep moving,
every day we're improving,
and we don't get nothing - Nothing Like The Blues.
Track Name: Travelling Busker - Gary Reid Music
Street Performing Travelling Busker

I don’t have a daytime schedule I need to be keeping,
and the chance is good I don’t know tonight where I’m sleeping,
So I’ll play and sing with all the strength I can muster,
Being a street performing traveling busker.

It appeals to my desire for legalized gambling,
and when I make up my own words you won’t know I’m rambling,
I’ve got a good woman back home and I know I can trust her,
while I’m out being a street performing traveling busker.

The world’s second oldest profession,
somehow it became my obsession,
can’t wait can’t resist finding a new place to play.

It’s not a job it’s my vocation,
my favorite method of communication,
Can’t talk, can’t hardly walk, but I’ve got things to say.

One day maybe I’ll go and play inside.
No more frozen hands or frozen stares from passers-by.
Maybe I’ll get picked up for a movie that’ll be a blockbuster,
but for now I love being a street performing traveling busker.

Yeah for now I love being a street performing traveling busker.
Track Name: Mental Vacation - Gary Reid Music
I hit the floor running, every single day.
To put food on the table, there’s no time to play.

But if I had my ‘druthers,
I’d take a day off like the others.
No need to pack my case,
I’d drift away to this same place…

I’d take a mental vacation, and set my mind at ease.
A break from the situation, a mental vacation please.

When midday comes around, there’s a million things I’ve done.
My head is spiraling down, with no place left for fun.

But if I had my preference,
I’d switch my whole frame of reference.
No need to change my latitude,
One small step into a new attitude…

I’d take a mental vacation, and set my mind at ease.
A break from the situation, a mental vacation please.

-
I could use a short trip to my psychic oasis, a little moment for myself.
A daydream spot to fly to on a regular basis, someplace where there’s no one else.
-

I’ll take a mental vacation, i’ll set my mind at ease.
A break from the situation. A mental vacation please.

A mental vacation, please.
Track Name: Handstand - Gary Reid Music
I taught myself how to handstand,
because I couldn't learn to get with their plan, man.
Now I'm shining here up on the bandstand
because I finally learned how to handstand.

You know that I've found the ritual,
I had to stop before it became habitual.
It turned me into such a rugged individual
when I gave into the love of the ritual.

Getting high or laying low there's always something new to know.
You are me and I am you this is true.

Now I'm on the flight path,
because I couldn't learn to do the new math.
It turned me into some kind of psychopath,
so I'm taking off on the flight path.

Everybody's gotta learn to do their own thing.
Everybody finds out where they fit.
Each day a little higher, like walking through the fire,
you'll find you're stronger at the end of it.

I'm driving on in the fast lane,
sometimes I can't even remember my last name.
People tell me that I'm gonna go insane,
if I keep speeding in the fast lane.

Getting high or laying low there's always something new to know.
You are me and I am you this is true.

I taught myself how to handstand,
because I couldn't learn to get with their plan, man.
Now I'm shining here up on the bandstand
because I finally learned how to handstand.
Track Name: Found - Gary Reid Music
I was so lost when I found you
You turned my whole world around.

First I saw you, and I lost all control
Then I chased you and I lost half my soul.
When I found you, then my half was made a whole.
I lost track of the shape that I was in,

Next you touched me, and a smile crossed my face,
and then you kissed me, and it shot me into space,
When you loved me, then I lost all time and place.
I didn’t know right where I should begin

-
But I’ve found what this whole world has been looking for
I’ve found someone to share the ride that’s free.
I’ve found a candle in the darkness.
A mirror that sees the better side of me.
-

Now you’re with me, and it’s been so very long,
We’re together and together we are strong.
They can’t tell us whether we’re right or we are wrong.
Some say we’re lost in a whole world of sin,

-
I’ve found what this whole world has been looking for
I’ve found someone to share the ride that’s free.
I’ve found a candle in the darkness.
A mirror that sees the better side of me.
-

You were always there waiting,
You stepped right out of my dreams.

-
I’ve found what this whole world has been looking for
I’ve found someone to share the ride that’s free.
I’ve found a candle in the darkness.
A mirror that sees the better side of me.
