Track Name: Spirit of Johnny v2.0
Verse 1
There's something happening here
Two trains running
It might not seem so clear
But the engines are humming
There's not a second to spare -
The second coming?
Call up the Dynamo
Johnny come lately

Chorus:
....the spirit of Johnny...

Verse 2
There's something happening here
A word, a sound
That follows us around
Like lightning to the ground
Something you can't ignore
If you have ears to hear
Call in the Dynamo
Johnny come nearly

Chorus:
....the spirit of Johnny...

Bridge:
Where did you find it?
Where do you hide it?
A pocket full of soul...

Verse 3
There's something happening here
Two trains running
And running out of time
Johnny come quickly

Chorus:
Track Name: Asleep by Midnight
Verse 1:
I've got a bit of stage fright
I'm sleeping with a night light
That's just not me
Thought I saw a satellite,
But it was just a searchlight
Trying to wake me

Chorus:
....asleep by midnight...etc

Verse 2:
I dreamed about a white knight
In a car with just one headlight
Trying to save me
He pulled up to a stop light
Everything went black and white
It all got hazy

Chorus:
....asleep by midnight...etc

Bridge:

Chorus:
...asleep by midnight...
It's not where you're from,
It's who you become
In your own right
Track Name: Shack in the Back
Verse 1:
Green light in the Gardens,
barefoot summer darkens
Let's go around the corner
to a bungalow one block over

Chorus:
In the shack in the back
just off the streetcar track
Saved from the trash
Drums and cymbals crash

Verse 2:
New daisies in the shadows,
making their own meadows
A garden of guitars
blooming in the twilight hours

Chorus:
In the shack in the back
just off the streetcar track
Saved from the trash
Drums and cymbals crash


Chorus:
In the shack in the back
just off the streetcar track
Saved from the trash
Drums and cymbals crash
In the shack in the back
Just off the streetcar track
In the refrigerator
There's cold beer for later
In the shack in the back
just off the streetcar track
Saved from the trash
Drums and cymbals crash
Track Name: 79
Verse 1:
Seventy-nine
Spirits and wine
my rock n roll wreckage -
I own it, it’s mine.
Seventy-nine
planets align,
eclipse the moon, and you
somehow still outshine

Chorus:
Don’t you know who I forgot I was?
Nothing left to see
I’m younger than I know,
and older than I’ll be

Verse 2:
Seventy-nine
born a fault line
Can’t help my earthquakes
might shiver your spine
Seventy-nine
Combust and combine
careful how you step,
a human land mine

Chorus:
Don’t you know who I forgot I was?
Nothing left to see
I’m younger than I know,
and older than I’ll be
Don’t you know who I forgot I was?
Nothing left to see
I’m younger than I know,
and older than I’ll be

Bridge:
come on like a head-on crash
wheels spinning, upside down
come on like a head-on crash
seen it all, and been around

SOLO



Verse 3:
Seventy-nine
Spirits and wine
your rock n roll wreckage -
that’s where I draw the line


Chorus:
Don’t you know who I forgot I was?
Nothing left to see
I’m younger than I know,
and older than I’ll be
Don’t you know who I forgot I was?
Nothing left to see
I’m younger than I know,
and older than I’ll be
Track Name: Stereo Alley
Verse 1:
Suitcase on the concourse, plane ticket in your hand -
a cityscape, a lighthouse, a beach with shifting sand.
Just tying on your shoes gave you the walking blues -
not sure where you’re going, but nothing left to lose.

Chorus:
Goodnight, Dancing Jimmy,
wherever you are…
down Stereo Alley,
deep in the dark
Whoever you follow,
Wherever you roam,
No matter the distance,
She’ll guide you home.

Verse 2:
Every building’s tired, every street is grey -
seven times seven times you just turned away.
If time and space between them won’t change how you feel -
just say “Lord, I give up - and Jesus take the wheel”.

Chorus:
Goodnight, Dancing Jimmy,
wherever you are…
down Stereo Alley,
deep in the dark
Whoever you follow,
Wherever you roam,
No matter the distance,
she’ll guide you home.

Verse 3:
Funny how sometimes you have to go and disappear -
to find yourself lost, destination crystal clear.

Chorus:
Goodnight, Dancing Jimmy,
wherever you are…
down Stereo Alley,
deep in the dark
Who will you follow?
Where will you roam?
No matter the distance,
she’ll guide you home.
