Rust Train Radio

When the world seems full of woe and strife
On an autumn day - go outside
Smell the leaves rusting in the air
See the colors that almost seem unfair

Yes, miracles sneak past
How long will they last?
Do they have an expiration date?
Have I arrived too late?

Its getting more rare in this world
With so many hate flags unfurled
Just take a walk outside
To energize the love you have inside

Nature is your guide
Rekindle the spirit inside
Look all around and you'll feel
New hope with natures key

You Can’t Get There From Here

I figured out how to get around my fear of singing (Phonophobia). I make believe I’m some famous rock singer. A while back I channeled Mark E. Smith from The Fall and it turned out quite good. Yesterday was my Elvis day and today I channeled Lou Reed.

You can't get there from here
You must find another way
You've gone way off course
Well that's okay

We all get lost
Off the beaten path
In our misdirection
We always learn fast

Learn from your mistakes
Don't be afraid
Practice makes perfect
You'll make the grade

When you arrive
You will know
Sometimes it takes a while
Sometimes it's slow

Chorus

You can't get there from here
You can't get there from here
You can't get there from here
You can't get there from here

On The Great Hope Highway

Maybe this new year
Will be the year
That the Pandemic
Disappears

Maybe this new year
People will tire
Of politics and
Put differences aside

Maybe this new year
Nations will awake
And work towards
Earth being a sustainable place

Maybe this new year
People can change
One can hope
Its not that strange

A Red Letter Day

A Red star
A Red Letter
Great news
It's all coming together
On this Red Letter Day

Last week
Bad news
Sad news
Singing the blues
Paying some dues

Life is
A mixed bag
Some happy
Some sad
Some mysteriously


The paradox
Is when
Bad news
Turns out to be
The best thing
That could ever happen

It seems that
Today is that
Turning point
I hadn't even hoped for
Silly me

In our worries
We forget to see Miracles
That might come to be
Life is a mystery

The Shoes on Their Feet

When you see others
Out on the street
You should remember
To look at their feet

Think about walking
Around in their shoes
You'll then learn why
They do what they do

Life isn't easy
But it is wonderful
With our compassion
There's nothing we can't do

Hope is a Prayer

If hope is a prayer
It's all in our minds
I've been hoping for you
Guess I'm the praying kind

I do hope a lot
Especially for you
I pray that your dreams
Will all come true

A bird on the wing
You know how to fly
You made me laugh
When I thought I should cry

I do hope a lot
Especially for you
I pray that your dreams
Will all come true

If hope is true love
Then yes it is true
All my love
Is directed at you

I do hope a lot
Especially for you
I pray that your dreams
Will all come true

Hope, Prayer and Love
Might be the same
You get more than what you give
Like a runaway train

I do hope a lot
Especially for you
I pray that your dreams
Will all come true
