about

MUSIC is language. Transcending the mind and moving stealthily beyond intellect, it strikes the heart and renders you senseless, catapulting you to plains of euphoria and arresting you in realms of another world. I LOVE MUSIC. It has been a friend in dark hours, a sage to my ignorance, arevealer of truths, an exposer of lies, a brother in the call to war, a sister speaking peace to my anxiety.

MY HOPE is that these songs bless you as music has me. May you be filled with peace; may your lies be exposed; may your truths be revealed; may you live; may you laugh; may you long. Ultimately, I hope you learn to live a life of love - Love Is The Way!

LOVE & THANKS TO: Elohim, for grace, mercy and guidance; Christine, for love, growth, friendship and learning; Steve Carr – you da man! You really are a master musician and engineer! Shirley Carr, for putting up with noisy late nights; Michael Holleman, Skot Jakubiec, Randy Watkins, Billy Hue, Karl Rehn, & Kyle O’Connor - Wow - I’m blessed to have worked with such awesome musicians! Randy & Greta Watkins, for introducing me to the art community in the Brazos Valley; Greg Tivis, for connection, encouragement and just awesome playing! Tim & Kristin Douglass - for awesome photos and conversations; Heather Morrison, your creativity rocks! Adam Saenz, Jacob Kail, Mark Douglass, Shawn McGee for coffees, cigars, conversations, and encouragements; Restorative Dreams, Douglass Gathering, & Community Church for deconstruction, healing . . . and being groovily weird! Pittsburgh & Ohio Families and Friends - you are loved and missed; Those Whose Names I Missed - I am sincerely sorry, but I love and thank you; YOU who are reading this and bought the CD - THANK YOU!

Peace, Love, and Groove!
Joey McGee

Track Name: Between The Right And The Wrong
you know I know the difference
between the right and the wrong
you know I take the inference
and I put it in a song
you must know I don’t do so well
when things don’t go so good

and I know this indecision is the death of you and me
but trust I must go through this
if we are ever to be free
it is complicated, so frustrating, confusion to the core
you know . . .

chorus:
and you, you got what I need
and I just want to stop this bleeding
and fly on the wings of the dawn
while the world tries to decide
between the right and the wrong

well I tried and tried to deny
and stuffed these things down deep inside
but every time they just collided
and they knocked me, breathless, too the floor
while rushing for the opened door - oh no . . .

chorus:

yeah you, you got what I need
and I just want to stop this bleeding

yeah you, you got what I need
and I just want to stop this bleeding
and fly on the wings of the dawn
while the world tries to decide
between the right and the wrong
Track Name: Day In The Life Of A Girl
she woke up in the morning
with a smile on her face
sang a hallelujah and amazing grace
drew close to her lover for a warm embrace
smiled to herself and said,
“you’ve got such good taste!”
ahh, day in the life of a girl
ahh, day in the life of a girl

went to manhattan
caught the west-bound train
stepped up on the sidewalk
and it started to rain
she had no umbrella: “aw man what a pain!"
straightened out her black skirt
and began to sing …

ahh, day in the life of a girl
ahh, day in the life of a girl

it’s just another day
it’s just another day in the life
she’s okay and she’s gonna work it out alright
it’s just another day
just another day in the life

it’s just another day
it’s just another day in the life
she’s okay and she’s gonna work it out just fine
it’s just another day
just another day in the life

pop into the café for a tall latte
add a bit of chocolate
and whipped cream today
“this one’s on the house,” the barista said
candid conversations, she was on her way

ahh, day in the life of a girl
ahh, day in the life of a girl
just another day in the life
day in the life, day in the life
day in the life of a girl
day in the life of a girl
day in the life of a girl, yeah!
Track Name: Green And Blue
you've got a fire in your eyes
drawing me in like moth to the flame
and i'm the only one to blame
if i get burned.
'cause, girl, you've got a certain kind of hue
drawing me into you and i can't explain ...
what it is

but i caught a vision of me and you
i caught a vision of green and blue.

i'll meet you on a saturday
in front of the old café on top of the world
you say the window shoppin's fine
especially in spring time
in the old vieux carre…bring it on.

'cause i caught a vision of me and you
i caught a vision of green and blue

i caught a vision
i caught a vision, yeah

the world can be so cold outside
running against the odds in this old town
but i confess i'm feelin' fine
with you here running by my side
and i don't mind if you don't mind

'cause i caught a vision of me and you
i caught a vision. can it be true
i caught a vision of green and blue
Track Name: I Want You (Bob Dylan Cover)
the guilty undertaker sighs
the lonely organ-grinder cries
the silver saxophones say i should refuse you
the cracked bells and the washed out horns
they blow into my face with scorn
but it’s not that way, i wasn’t born to lose you

i want you, i want you
i want you so bad
honey, i want you

the drunken politician leaps
upon the street where mothers weep
and saviours who are fast asleep wait for you
and i wait for them to interrupt me
drinking from my broken cup
and asking me to open up the gate for you

i want you, i want you
i want you so bad
honey, i want you

now all my fathers, they’ve gone down
true love they’ve been without it
but all their daughters put me down
‘cause i don’t think about it

well i return to the queen of spades
and talk with my chambermaid
she knows that i’m not afraid to look at her
she is good to me and
there’s nothing she doesn’t see
she knows where i’d like to be
but it doesn’t matter

i want you, i want you
i want you so bad
honey, i want you

now your dancing child with his chinese suit
he spoke to me, i took his flute
i know i wasn’t very cute to him, was i
but i did it because he lied
and because he took you for a ride
and because time was on his side, and because i

i want you, i want you
i want you so bad
honey, i want you
Track Name: Boy Met A Girl
boy met a girl
a very beautiful girl
and even though
he couldn't quite explain it
she was the one
she was a dream
an awesome inspiring dream
she was the moon and the stars
and bright shining sun

and oh, the feeling
when you've finally found the one
who's the missing piece of your puzzle
and the lyric to your song
when boy met a girl

they were in love
a sweet kind of love
girl, take my hand in yours
and walk with me
girl, she agreed
'cause i can surely see
that you and me, boy
were meant to be one

and oh, the feeling
when you're finally face the face
with the one whom you've longed for
in your carefree embrace

when boy met a girl
when boy met a girl
boy met a girl
Track Name: Yesterday
yesterday was the day i was a stranger
i was lost and confused in my own town
had no hopes no dreams
no purpose no meaning
it took all that i had
to keep from going down ... yesterday

yesterday was the day i caught a vision
set a course and i left my old town
took the chance and i sailed
out on the raging seas
and i walked on the waves
though i thought i'd drown

yesterday was the day
of the opened eye
yesterday was the day
of no compromise
yesterday was the day i saw the lie
and now i'm lost in yesterday

yesterday was the day
i rode on eagle's wings
let the wind burn my face
man we flew so high
through the night caught a sight
of a shooting star
and i knew that my dream
was right before my eyes

yesterday was the day
of the opened eye
yesterday was the day
of no compromise
yesterday was the day i saw the lie
and now i'm lost in yesterday
yesterday, yesterday
lost in yesterday

we can live we can breathe
in the western sky
we can hope we can dream
and not wonder why
take the chance do the dance
and begin to fly
and say good bye to yesterday
Track Name: Love Is The Way
once upon a time there was a world
where a woman and a man
roamed the earth in peace and harmony
side by side and hand in hand

change of season and the serpent came
spread delusion through the lie
man and woman in disharmony
strive to see through jaded eyes

chorus:
where love is the way
and the sunlight rules the day
where hurt and pain
are emotions never seen

traveling on this crazy road of life
sometimes it seems i’ve lost my way
stumbling through the darkness of the night
trying to see the light of day

where love is the way
and the sunlight rules the day
where hurt and pain
are emotions never seen (go to the bridge)

bridge:
where love, love, is the way
love, love, saves the day
love, love, is the way
love, love, saves the day (solo)

yes, love is the way
and the sunlight rules the day
where hurt and pain
are emotions never seen
where you and i
no longer live the lie
where hope is found
and we are no longer bound
