If I could have 2 cars in a dream garage. . .

The Mercedes Benz CL550

The G-Wagon

I work in a candy store of the sexiest metal on the road.

Why can't I lay low
Why can't I say what I mean
Why don't I stay home
And get myself into some boring routine

Why can't I calm down
Why is it always a fight
I can't get unwound
Why do I throw myself into the night

I'm on the outside
I don't fit into the groove
Now I ain't a bad guy
So tell me what am I trying to prove

Why can't I cool out
Why don't I button my lip
Why do I lash out
Why is it I always shoot from the hip

I cruise from Houston to canal street
A misfit and a rebel
I see the winos talking to themselves
And I can understand
Why is it every time I go out
I always seem to get in trouble
I guess I made an impression on somebody
North of Hester and south of Grand

And so in my small way
I'm a big man on Mulberry street
I don't mean all day
Only at night when I'm light on my feet

What else have I got
That I'd be trying to hide
Maybe a blind spot
I haven't seen from the sensitive side

But you know in my own heart
I'm a big man on Mulberry street
I play the whole part
I leave a big tip with every receipt

I'm so romantic
I'm such a passionate man
Sometimes I panic
What if nobody finds out who I am

I've been livin' for the moment
But I just can't have my way
And I'm afraid to go to sleep
'Cause tomorrow is today

People tell me life is sweeter
But I don't hear what they say
Nothing comes to change my life
So tomorrow is today

I don't care to know the hour
'Cause it's passing anyway
I don't have to see tomorrow
'Cause I saw it yesterday

So I listen for an answer
But the feeling seems to stay
And what's the use of always dreaming
If tomorrow is today, oh

Still I'm waiting for the morning
But it feels so far away
And you don't need the love I'm giving
So tomorrow is today

Oh my, I'm goin' to the river
Gonna take a ride and the Lord will deliver me
Make my bed, I'm gonna lie in it
If you don't come, I'm sure gonna die in it
Too late, too much givin'

I've seen a lot of life and I'm damn sick of livin' it
I keep hopin' that you will pass my way
And someday if your dreams are leavin' you
I'll still believe in you

Though I'm living and I'm singing
And although my hands still play
Soon enough it will all be over 'cause
Tomorrow is today.

I'm thankful

I'm very happy, thankful, and blessed for the following:

To hold my baby when she wakes up, and to hold her when she falls asleep

To have my favorite instrument downstairs

To participate in one of the most original talented bands I've heard of

To be a part of a loving and caring family

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I'm also glad that my Girlfriend is gorgeous, and super smart. I'm also glad that my piano is the perfect size for my house. I'm really glad my band doesn't suck. And I'm very happy my parents are proud of me.

That's what the little black part is at the bottom.

Taken yesterday on the Peninsula

That's a wild bird, in the middle of a rain forest, on top of a mountain.

(what's not shown is the rest of my band enjoying the same activity)
