Uplifter Lyrics
  • HEY YOU
    Music: N. Hexum Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    You’ve changed your tune many times, since we met
    But I always recognize you, you are part of me
    I feel you whether in Jamaica or in the angel city
    You’re such a gift to me, ooh

    Hey you, I gotta tell you my long time friend
    I think of all those years you saw me through tears and the good times that we spend
    Hey you, you’re my constant companion
    You always let me explain just what I am sayin’ and we’ve just begun

    I’ve got one wish for this music to be an uplift
    And I need an uplift to deal
    And there are few songs all the people can sing along
    And one song, come along and sing it for real, ooh

    Hey you, I gotta tell you my long time friend
    I think of all those years you saw me through tears and the good times that we spend
    Hey you, you’re my constant companion
    You always let me explain just what I am sayin’ and we’ve just begun

    As I wander around, town to town, lost and found
    When so many many others come and go (come and go)
    Your sweetness pulls me through (ooh, ooh, ooh)

    Hey you, I gotta tell you my long time friend
    I think of all those years you saw through my tears and the good times that we spend
    Hey you, you’re my constant companion
    You always let me explain just what
    I am sayin’ and we’ve just begun

    Hey you, you never turned your back on me
    Ahh, when I gave up on myself
    Hey you, you never turned your back on me
    Ahh, when I gave up on myself
    Hey you, what would the world be like
    Ahh, without you around
    Music you’re my constant companion, ahh

    MIX IT UP
    A. Wills, N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    You take a little bit a me and a whole lot of you
    Add it up together and here’s what you gonna do, you gotta
    Mix it up quick and it’ll blow up on the spot I gotta
    Tell ya that the place gettin’ hot, now

    Mix it up, uh, just mix it up what the
    Sum of all the parts when you add it up make much
    More than what you had I tell you what it’s like mad
    The baddest thing that you ever had, ungh

    I was never too good at math anyway
    But when you add it up it comes out more I have to say
    A lot of people looking for what you and me have found
    And now it seems no one else around ungh

    A little bit a me and a whole lot of you
    Add it up together and here’s what you gonna do, you gotta
    Mix it up quick and it’ll blow up on the spot I gotta
    Tell ya that the place gettin’ hot, now

    Mix it up, uh, just mix it up what the
    Sum of all the parts when you add it up make much
    More than what you had I tell you what it’s like mad
    The baddest thing that you ever had ungh

    We’re just two misfits that no one else gets
    Everyone else in the place became a silhouette
    Soon as there was you it all came in view on my guitar
    I see the sparks when we have those conversations in the dark

    I was never too good at math anyway
    But when you add it up it comes out more I have to say
    A lot of people looking for what you and me have found
    And now it seems no one else around

    A little bit a me and a whole lot of you
    Add it up together and here’s what you gonna do, you gotta
    Mix it up quick and it’ll blow up on the spot I gotta
    Tell ya that the place gettin’ hot, now

    Mix it up, uh, just mix it up what the

    I see the sparks when we have those conversations in the dark


    GOLDEN SUNLIGHT
    Music: T. Mahoney, C. Sexton Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Hand over hand
    I crawled back to land
    There is no retreat
    That option’s far and away
    I have to be brave
    I always did crave
    The golden sunlight

    It’s been about me
    But I’m setting that free
    For golden sunlight

    There’s a door open to walk through
    All I want is, just beyond
    What if I could let my guard down
    Into freedom, on and on

    Somehow it came out
    What I can’t talk about
    Someone to help me
    As free as I wanna be
    I cannot erase
    But you helped me face
    The songs and the flowers

    At last, perception
    Of my self-deception
    And then the songs and the flowers

    There’s a door open to walk through
    All I want is, just beyond
    What if I could let my guard down
    Into freedom, on and on

    What if I could just let my guard down
    What if I could live wide open
    What if I could just let my guard down
    And go beyond into the great unknown

    Sweetheart I’ve been bothered
    A golden sunlit path I’ve been after
    Grass hills, wildflowers
    Chaparral trails for our daughter
    I want to be her father
    I want to hear her laughter
    Under meteor showers
    Our dogs will howl at the midnight hour

    There’s a door open to walk through
    All I want is, just beyond
    What if I could let my guard down
    Into freedom, on and on

    What if I could just let my guard down
    What if I could live wide open
    What if I could just let my guard down
    And go beyond into the great unknown


    INDIA INK
    Music: N. Hexum Lyrics: N. Hexum

    I write your name on my arm in india ink
    Baby I told you once before it’s not what you think
    I drink you in with a sip but I really want a chug
    You know I take what I can get gimme a dub, now

    So good, so good c’mon now I wish you would
    Anytime we get together get the feeling like I could

    I write your name on my arm in india ink
    Baby I told you once before it’s not what you think
    I drink you in with a sip but I really want a chug
    You know I take what I can get gimme a dub

    So good, so good c’mon now I wish you would
    Anytime we get together get the feeling like I could

    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, is that the best you can give me?
    Whoa, are you with me?

    I write your name on my arm in india ink
    Baby I told you once before it’s not what you think
    I drink you in with a sip but I really want a chug
    You know I take what I can get gimme a dub, now

    You’re even cuter when you get cross just
    Stamping your foot and trying to be the boss

    I write your name on my arm in india ink
    I’m hanging on every word because the way that you think
    Yes, every misstep, well it lead me to you
    I’ll do what I gotta do to see it through

    If we see a shooting star celebrate with a kiss
    Won’t have to wait to far with that one we’ll never miss

    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, is that the best you can give me?
    Whoa, are you with me?

    I’d carve your name on my arm but you’d be alarmed that I did it
    I admit it
    A big swing and a miss so I’ll keep my distance back in it
    In a minute

    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, is that the best you can give me?
    Whoa, are you with me?
    Whoa, are you with me?
    (I write your name on my arm in india ink)
    Whoa, are you with me?
    (I told you once before it’s not what you think)
    Whoa, is that the best you can give me?
    Whoa, are you with me?
    (I write your name on my arm in india ink
    Baby I told you once before it’s)


    DAISY CUTTER
    Music: N. Hexum Lyrics: N. Hexum

    I tried to move with a cool hand
    It didn’t go as I planned
    I’m full of rookie maneuvers
    And gestures meant to be grand
    I tried a bag of tricks one after another,
    I asked if you heard of my band

    So misguided
    The sincere approach, never tried it once

    You said to just drop the game flat
    Why didn’t I think of that?

    My daisy
    You make me go crazy
    Forever amaze me
    Now let’s let the day go lazy
    My daisy
    You know what I’m after
    Your musical laughter
    A more beautiful disaster

    I can’t believe what you create
    When you let your heart detonate
    You let your mind go with one blast then another
    And, what comes next I will await

    Tell me again the one about the time
    We first got together and you blew my mind

    I find my mind in the gutter
    When I think of my daisy cutter

    My daisy
    You make me go crazy
    Forever amaze me
    Now let’s let the day go lazy
    My daisy
    You know what I’m after
    Your musical laughter
    A more beautiful disaster

    It’s four months now since you crashed into my life (into my life)
    You leave a path of delightful destruction you’re quite the bomb my daisy

    Clap your hands,
    Get down to the beat,
    Clap you hands
    Just clap your hands to the beat

    My daisy
    You make me go crazy
    Forever amaze me
    Now let’s let the day go lazy
    My daisy
    You know what I’m after
    Your musical laughter
    A more beautiful disaster

    My daisy, you know just what I’m after,
    You make my heart beat so much faster
    My daisy, you know you drive me crazy,
    You just blow me away my daisy


    TOO MUCH TOO FAST
    Music: N. Hexum Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Rifling through the pictures of you
    I can finally tell they developed well
    The tale I see it tells my favorite story
    Of friction and glory
    Breaking the cast of repeating the past
    It’s not written that’s all just fiction
    Oh, who says it’s written in stone

    It’s been a long time such a long time
    Finding my way on back out, whoa
    Somehow you stood by beyond when you should
    I’m amazed at how things have turned out

    What is revealed
    What is concealed
    Makes all the difference
    Say what you will
    We unreel that human web
    Just to see how it feels

    Too much too fast for the moment to last
    I tumbled to you while stumbling through
    How do I get my head up off the tracks
    Listening for a train?
    Ah-ah, cuz that’s just no way to live
    I’ve got so much love to give
    Much too fast ooh-ooh

    Out of the blue it all comes in view
    You never win if you don’t go all in
    The perfect hand can go just as you planned
    I don’t understand
    Began right on track slipped through the cracks
    We were two of a kind who seemed destined to find
    We unreel that human web
    Just to see how it feels

    Too much too fast for the moment to last
    I tumbled to you while stumbling through
    How do I get my head up off the tracks
    Listening for a train?
    Ah-ah, cuz that’s just no way to live
    I’ve got so much love to give
    Much too fast ooh-ooh

    So much love to give, too much too fast
    So much love to give, too much too fast
    So much love to give, too much too fast
    So much love to give, too much too fast


    NEVERENDING SUMMER
    Music: C. Sexton, N. Hexum, Lyrics: N. Hexum, A. Wills

    Tell ya what I like this moment of unity
    When there’s no distance in between you and me
    I gotta stop when it becomes us and them
    Need an enemy for ego to win
    These are the good old days
    I don’t care what they have to say
    These are the good old days
    All together now

    So tell me
    Can this all be real?
    Find it so bizarre
    Can this all be real?
    Orbiting a star
    Find it too intense to be a coincidence
    I don’t think you gotta let go of common sense
    Can this all be real right now?

    Summer, never ending summer
    That’s our time, we do it all the time
    From Tokyo Bay to the little five points
    Keep on blazing a trail keep on rocking the joints
    Summer, here we go na, na, na, na, na, na

    Hanging out, with my friends we’re traveling
    Out and about, good times that we’re having it’s
    Harmonic bliss when we all are synchronized
    Something got to see with your eyes

    These are the good old days
    I don’t care what they have to say
    These are the good old days
    All together now

    Summer, never ending summer
    That’s our time, we do it all the time
    From Tokyo Bay to the little five points
    Keep on blazing a trail keep on rocking the joints
    Summer, here we go na, na, na, na, na, na

    Hanging out, with my friends we’re traveling
    Out and about, good times that we’re having it’s
    Harmonic bliss when we all are synchronized
    Something got to see with your eyes

    Summer, never ending summer
    That’s our time, we do it all the time
    From Tokyo Bay to the little five points
    Keep on blazing a trail keep on rocking the joints
    Summer, here we go na, na, na, na, na, na
    Summer, never ending summer
    That’s our time, we do it all the time
    Summer, never ending summer
    That’s our time, here we go na, na, na, na, na, na


    TWO DROPS IN THE OCEAN
    Music: N. Hexum, Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Thinking of you
    It all comes in view
    I believe we came from the same cloud
    Two drops in the ocean
    Tell me again
    The story of when we
    We will be together one day

    We’re two of a kind
    Forever we’ve been combined
    Though the current will pull us apart
    Two drops in the ocean
    You are part of me
    The other side of the sea and
    We will be together one day

    Hey hey, what can I say
    I swim your way though the tide pull us away,
    I ask you whatcha gonna do?
    Oceans apart and but I know no one else will do
    Two drops in the ocean
    Just go with motion dear

    We’ll meet again
    From two rivers that delta to shore
    Two drops in the ocean

    Fall into me
    Dissolve in the sea
    The boundaries between
    They are nothing
    The love we have
    The only real thing
    Yeah

    There is a stone wall around your heart
    Nothing left now to do but to start
    Chipping away, day by day
    Until we see it break it apart
    Hear me talking bout
    Let it be known, it can be done
    Bit by bit and one by one
    If the two of us try from both the two sides
    Until we see the sun
    You’re phenomenal
    Two drops in the ocean
    Just go with motion

    A lot of fish in the sea
    But not for me
    You’re something of a different kind
    The rest evaporate but you stay in my mind

    There is a stone wall around your heart
    Nothing left now to do but to start
    Chipping away, day by day
    Until we see it break it apart
    Hear me talking bout
    Let it be known, it can be done
    Bit by bit and one by one
    If the two of us try from both the two sides
    Until we see the sun
    You’re phenomenal

    Hey hey, what can I say
    I swim your way though the tide pull us away,
    I ask you whatcha gonna do?
    Oceans apart and but I know no one else will do
    Two drops in the ocean
    Just go with motion dear

    Eternal, perpetual, unending
    I am the mystical
    The sweet science of seeing the whole

    MY HEART SINGS
    Music: N. Hexum, Lyrics: N. Hexum

    Four A.M. this hotel room and I think of you
    Not in anger, but in danger of calling you
    My mind’s a long, long way from it was then
    And now the good times just keep drifting back in

    Breathe it on out the in will come so freely
    You’ll figure it out the answer will come so clearly dear
    Let it all go cuz we can’t know just what will be
    Hard it is to set you free
    It’s so much easier that way

    My heart sings when I think of you
    That is what you do
    A melody that will settle me
    And that is just the thought of you
    My heart sings and it’s time you knew, yeah
    My heart sings

    I’m not made of stone, I’m only flesh and bone
    I’m half crazy and amazed that you are alone
    Let’s sit on the shore watch the ocean breathe
    Sit and watch the ocean breathe
    It’s getting dark but we both don’t want to leave

    Breathe it on out the in will come so freely
    You’ll figure it out the answer will come so clearly dear
    Let it all go cuz we can’t know just what will be
    Hard it is to set you free
    It’s so much easier that way

    My heart sings when I think of you
    That is what you do
    A melody that will settle me
    And that is just the thought of you
    My heart sings and it’s time you knew, yeah
    My heart sings
    My heart sings

    My heart sings, my heart sings when I think of you, yeah
    You anchor me when I’m lost at sea bring me back to you, yeah
    We can’t know just what will be, what the future brings but

    My heart sings
    My heart sings

    Music: N. Hexum, C. Sexton Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    I like the way you keep it from me, whoa-oa-oa
    I like the way you move in front of me yeah-ah
    It’s just enough contact to make me come back
    So many other girls just make my mind slack
    I like the way you give it to me yeah-ah

    You’re in front, I’m behind walking down a corridor
    The way you’re moving yourself, it make me want you more

    My rods and cones have a mind of thier own
    They keep staring at you and wanna get you alone

    You got that sun dress mesh, yes, that’s the best
    With a flower two piece underneath so fresh

    I get a head full of bees when you’re in the vicinity
    I cannot stop but thinking about infinity

    I get a thrill, you kill me with vernacular
    Speak your mind, I find it kind of spectacular

    I asked her if she would come away with me
    And she said are you crazy? I said I must be.
    No you know, now we both know
    I guess you’re right, we should just take it slow
    I was hooked on a feeling
    You’re so right to put on the brakes
    That’s how I know that you got what it takes

    I like the way you keep it from me, whoa-oa-oa
    I like the way you move in front of me yeah-ah
    It’s just enough contact to make me come back
    So many other girls just make my mind slack
    I like the way you give it to me yeah-ah

    Baby are we ready, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah
    Tell me can we rock steady, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah


    GET DOWN
    Music: C. Sexton, N. Hexum, Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    I got this great idea
    About why I got stuck in reverse
    I was so out of control
    It just got worse
    I hope you have more sense than I
    Side step the curse
    I don’t know just what came first
    In the spiral
    Threatening my survival
    It’s come time to get down…

    It’s time to get down, boots to the ground
    No, I won’t stop ’til I hear the bell sound
    Keep your head up ‘cuz the truth just cut
    No quick fix when your caught in a rut
    What I gotta do to get right sized
    Think I’m despised when I look through the eyes of another
    Not mine to discover
    What the next man thinks is none of my fucking buisness

    I then I think what is this?
    Illusion that I can fix
    You name it. Hey
    The story stays the same
    Any trouble you can name
    Just go straight into accept it
    You name it. Hey
    It’s time to get down

    To the ground
    So simple yet profound
    In the now, that’s why we’re here

    Inspiration I’ve been waiting all my life
    I’m set free, it happened
    I won’t look back and think twice
    How it’s meant to be
    Something’s happened
    A sudden slap in the right place
    In my face, I thank you
    You always came through for me
    It’s how it’s meant to be

    Gonna get down because I can’t stay high
    All of the time, ’cause I see the sign
    So I realign with an open mind
    Adamant and circumvent
    I get by every night and day
    Get by with my comfort way
    An open space to an open way
    I just unwind, I just unwind

    I then I think what is this?
    Illusion that I can fix
    You name it. Hey
    The story stays the same
    Any trouble you can name
    Just go straight into accept it
    You name it. Hey
    It’s time to get down
    To the ground
    So simple yet profound
    In the now, that’s why we’re here

    Inspiration I’ve been waiting all my life
    I’m set free, it happened
    I won’t look back and think twice
    How it’s meant to be
    Something’s happened
    A sudden slap in the right place
    In my face, I thank you
    You always came through for me
    It’s how it’s meant to be


    SUN COME THROUGH
    Music: C Sexton, Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Running the ship on an ego
    Shutting the mind and closed out
    People would ask where did he go
    As the boat sunk down
    Lie to yourself it’s so tragic
    You become a wreck in slow mo
    Breaking it down ’til you’re all alone

    I’m in the center of a labyrinth
    I feel lost I feel imprisoned
    Tell me there’s an end
    I need some oxygen
    How did I get here
    Help me make it out of here

    I can see it all now clear at last, the fog has lifted
    If I only knew
    All came it focus at once, it’s such a gift
    If I knew the truth
    As long as I’ve been here never could I steer clear of myself
    Think what I could do
    Sun come through

    What if I’d kept it together
    And never to bounce off the ground
    It couldn’t have got any better
    With anyone around

    That’s how I got here
    That’s how it got so clear

    I can see it all now clear at last, the fog has lifted
    If I only knew
    All came it focus at once, it’s such a gift
    If I knew the truth
    As long as I’ve been here never could I steer clear of myself
    Think what I could do
    Sun come through

    I’m finally home
    I see a light house
    I don’t have to roam
    It’s not all black out
    I can see it all now
    Out of nowhere came a clue
    Truth I hid the truth I hid from me
    Hit the skids I hit the skids only
    To find a light to light my way home
    Sun come through

    (bridge)
    I lost it all and all the was left
    Beat of my heart, air of my breath
    Better late than never

    I’m finally home
    I see a light house
    I don’t have to roam
    It’s not all black out
    I can see it all now
    Out of nowhere came a clue
    Truth I hid the truth I hid from me
    Hit the skids I hit the skids only
    To find a light to light my way home
    Sun come through
    Sun come through


    HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN
    Music: N. Hexum, Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way, oh

    I’m excitable to a fault
    But that’s my fault
    Feels like time grinds to a halt
    Seconds assault
    Rush the earth on by
    Planet, spin!
    Tell me just how long’s it been?

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way,

    There are no abstracts
    The metaphysics between us
    Are showing us patience
    Alert and attentive
    In the white star silence
    We get out of the harness
    The farthest but we
    Make it through the darkness

    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way

    (N solo, intro)

    But when I get back to the present
    Back in the moment
    I’m so grateful that you stayed
    The order of the day
    Bliss no delay, play
    See that everything is so much more than okay
    Feel the rhythm, feel the rhythm play-ay

    (breakdown chorus)
    How long has it been?
    Since you let me in
    I need it yesterday
    Just always been that way

    How long has it been
    How long has it been
