Walking Shoes

 

Here we go we've seen it all before 
Usual you, walking out the door 
Bad mood - bad feelings - bad news 
You're wearing those bad old walking shoes 

When we love, our life becomes a dream 
When we fight, we're back to being mean 
Mad mood: mad feelings: mad news 
You're wearing those mad old walking shoes 

(Chorus) 
Walking shoes, those walking shoes 
Walk right out my life 
Walking shoes, those sad old walking shoes 

If you stayed away it'd pain my heart 
Can't live without you, never part 
Sad mood: sad feelings: sad news. 
You're wearing those sad old walking shoes 

We both need to give and take 
Forgive each one's bad mistake 
We can change it, rearrange it, compromise a bit 
We both deserve the very best, that our love can give 

 

(Chorus)

Walk, walk, walk, walk walk walk walk 
Now run, back to me

Song Title: Shoes

Team: Kuster (Kuya & Murphster)

 

 

 

How long must a man walk
Before he can see
That land he dreams of
Where people are free
If you were that man now what would you do
Could you take a walk in his shoes

 

How long must a woman hide
Until she is sure
And step from shadows
No fear anymore
If you were that woman what would you do
Could you take a walk in her shoes

 

Does it all come down, to the place of our birth, to determine our worth
This world spins around, for have and have nots, gotta settle for their lot
‘Cos someone with nothing, has nothing to lose
Can you try to imagine, a man without shoes

 

How long must a child live
With out any hope
Drowning in poverty
Just throw him a rope
If you were that child now what would you do
Could you take a walk in his shoes

Song Title: Footprints in the Snow

Team: TriffidWolfe (Triffid & SongWolfe)

 

 

 

footprints in the snow     
tracks that soon will vanish
no one will know
that i was here
that you were here  
or that i felt your breath
as i pulled you near
 

spiderwebs that glow
perfect threads that glisten
no one will know
that we were here
blue sky so clear
or that you said you loved me
as i pulled you near
 

now memories they fade
and snow begins to melt
dripping on my pillow 
as the stars are fading out
i trace those steps
mine large, your's small
and the years roll back
i can see it all             
not a dream, not a fantasy
nor a trick of my mind
a moment captured
a frozen snapshot

a perfect moment in time

 

footprints in the snow

that slowly will vanish

only we will know

that i was there

that you were there
that we kissed beneath the larch

beyond the bigots unfair

and that you said you loved me

as i pulled you near

An old monochrome tube TV enshrined in dark, polished wood is wheeled in front of you. On the screen is a live audience show... 

 

 

Crocodilly Lilly

By team Mobody (Tracy somebody & Moso)

 

v1 

She baked like Martha Stewart

Had a figure like Tina Louise

Change a tyre? Sure, she'd do it

With an eagerness to please

 

v2 

Her smile, a bright morning

Honey, silken, divine

Always knew right when to call me

And when to hang up the line

 

v3 

Her contacts could move mountains

Amongst the wealthiest in the world

And her father really connected

So much to love in this girl

 

pre-c

It could have been a fairytale ending

A love with nothing to lose

She was the woman of my dreams

But I really didn't like her shoes

 

c

Crocodilly

Really, really, Lilly, Lilly

Crocodilly

Really didn't like her shoes

 

v4 

We took roads trips together

Never argued, never cursed

She was a touch of a revver

And man, could she reverse

 

v5 

She played golf every Sunday

Just before the poker game

She had a brilliant memory

Knowing everyone's name

 

v6

She was kind to all the animals

And they were kind to her

She could easily afford the best

But no, she never believed in fur

 

pre-c 

 

c

 

br

We holidayed in San Jose

And lunched in gay Paris

Sharing a bottle of French rosé 

She got down on her knees 

And said, would you marry me?

 

 

outtro

It could have been

High heel, low heel, slides into 

No heel, platform, wing tip, 

Snow boot, barefoot, blue suede, 

Derby, boat -- did you have to wear those 

Shhh~~~

In My Shoes

1 4 Rock

 

 

You question my discomfort 

As if you don’t know why

I do the best with what is left 

It’s been a painful ride

 Not something I would choose  

 You have not been

 You’ve never been in my shoes 

 

I don’t smile for the picture 

The way most people can

I struggle to convey the things 

You should understand  

 Don’t think you’ve paid the dues

 You have not been  

 You’ve never been in my shoes 

 

I’ve really tried to put the ugly behind 

But can see I’m not meeting your timeline 

Time doesn’t seem it doesn’t seem to care

And you, you’ve never been there 

 

I can’t erase the evening 

I relive everyday 

It’s tearing down a part of me

That I can’t reclaim  

 Can’t see your point of view  

 You have not been, been in my shoes  

 Not something I would choose  

 You have not been  

You’ve never been in my shoes

Song Title:  Indecision

Team:  Peek (Peko and Oswlek)

 

 

I’m cursed to be a waffle from my head to my toes 
Filled with little pockets of what ifs and who-knows 
It’s a latticework condition
I can’t make a decision


The way I handle problems is a problem itself 
Weighin’ all my options isn’t good for my health 
When I try to make choices, it’s just
Contradicting voices


Indecision... you make my life a mess
Indecision... you pile on the stress
What’s the answer? Is it yes or is it no?
What’s the answer? Eeny, meeny, miny mo
Indecision…


I’d trade my battered body for a column of stone 
Churning out decisions in a no-waffle zone
My torso retrofitted 
And me fully committed


Indecision... you make my life a mess
Indecision... you pile on the stress
What’s the answer? Is it yes or is it no?
What’s the answer? Eeny, meeny, miny mo...


I know I’d be better if I'd only waffle less
There might be a cure, but I don’t have it yet


Indecision... you make my life a mess
Indecision... you pile on the stress
What’s the answer? Can I opt out instead?
What’s the answer? You’re messin’ with my head
Indecision...
Quit messin’ with my head…

Song title: I Ain’t Looking Back

Team Barron: Barneyboy & Neuroron

 

I Ain’t Looking Back

Words & Music: ©2018, ASCAP by Ron Tintner & Bob Tanabe

I’ve been lost in a storm
Doin’ all I can
Runnin’ out of time
Tryin’ to make land
But that’s all behind me now and I ain’t looking back

I've taken some falls
Walked down wrong roads
(I've) made and lost friends
(By) steppin’ on toes
But that’s all behind me now and I ain’t looking back 

There’s mountains ahead, I’m gonna climb
I’ll hike to the peak at the top of the sky
Uncharted oceans, new ports-of-call
Adventures I’m longing to try

So I'll strap on my boots
Uncork the champagne
Beyond the horizon
That’s where I’ll aim
Wonders are waiting ahead – I ain’t looking back 

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

There’s mountains ahead, I’m gonna climb
I’ll hike to the peak at the top of the sky
Uncharted oceans, new ports-of-call
Adventures I’m longing to try

So I'll strap on my boots
Uncork the champagne
Beyond the horizon
That’s where I’ll aim
Wonders are waiting ahead – I ain’t looking back 

I know wonders are waiting ahead – I ain’t looking back

Title: Lucky Man

Team: Jotto (Jonie and Scotto)

 

 

The woman likes to tell you
What to wear and when to eat
She’ll tell you how to walk the line
 And where to stick your feet
She’ll tell you that she’s always right
She never gets that wrong
‘n if you’re a lucky man
She’ll tell you all night long

She’ll tell you when she’s mad if
You neglect to see the signs
And if you don’t apologize
She’ll make you do hard time
She’ll tell when she’s ready to
She’s told you that before
‘n if you’re a lucky man
She’ll tell you that some more

Ooh la la la
That woman never gives her mouth a rest
Ooh la la la
A lucky man like you deserves the best
Ooh la la la

She’ll tell you when she’s happy
When she’s horny, when she’s sad
She’ll tell you how she likes it when
Your naughty girl’s been bad
She’ll tell you she’s the only one
She’ll never let you down
‘n if you’re a lucky man
She’ll let you stick around

Ooh la la la
A lucky man like you has got it made
Ooh la la la
Better never let that woman get away
Ooh la la la

Bridge

Ooh la la la
That woman never gives her mouth a rest
Ooh la la la

 A lucky man like you deserves the best
Ooh la la la

Title: Coyote

Team: Duck DonnaMarilyn/PaulCanuck

 

https://soundcloud.com/paulcanuck/coyote-collab-with-donna

 

Coyote
Lyrics: Donna Devine
Music: Paul Canuck

 

They call him Coyote
He steals through the night
His eyes glowing amber
Like prisms of light

 

His fingers are narrow
His shoulders are strong
He looks to be human
Yet doesn’t belong

 

Where Coyote goes
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Where Coyote goes

 

He’ll tell you the secrets
Of life and of death
Can augur the future
From a baby’s first breath

 

Yet no one is certain
How Coyote came
He’ll give you his wisdom
But never his name

 

Where Coyote goes
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Where Coyote goes

 

Women have met with his dangerous charm
Fallen like angels into his arms
But later the pillow has nothing to show
It’s said he can burn your soul with his touch
It's fire, not blood that runs wild through his veins
He’ll fathom your heart but his mystery remains

 

Where Coyote goes
Nobody knows
Nobody knows
Where Coyote goes

 

Nobody knows
…Where Coyote goes

Title: You Better Believe

Team: QUART   Quintin Penola/ ART1108

 

 

 

 

I’ve got the music in my soul
You give it to me the stars are shining too 
We were meant to be
 
You turn the darkest skies to blue
When you,re next to me, I love all of you
You better believe
 
You can make me laugh and smile

You can give me this dance

If you lend me your hand

I feel I can fly

Dancing in the sky

You and I

in our Starlit Shoes Tonight

 
You’re the sunshine when there's rain
When you’re with me, You take away my pain
We were meant to be
 
You,re my bright light when it is dark
I can see that you,re so perfect for me
you better believe
 
You can make me laugh and smile

You can give me this dance

If you lend me your hand

I feel I can fly

Dancing in the sky 

You and I

And you can be the best of Meeeee

The best of meeeeeee

The best of  meeeeee

you better believeeeee

Song Title: “Lost In A Thought

Team ‘IronAndy’ – Tom Tognaci & Andy LeFevre

 

Final song structure:  V1 V2 Br1 V3(instrumental) Br2 V4 Tag

 

Lost In A Thought

© 2018 Tom Tognaci & Andy LeFevre

 

Running thru a field of grass

Hoping this dream will last and last

Your perfume fills the air….

...The sun overhead halos your hair

 

We’re looking up to the sky

Watching the clouds drift by and by

Laughing at the funny shapes….

...Stratus ships set sails for great escapes

 

Let’s stow away together,

On the clouds we’ll rendezvous  

Just swept away,

Lost in a thought  with you

 

Let’s sail those ships together

Cast-aways, across the blue 

Just swept away…………...

Lost in a thought - with you

 

Deep within your eyes

Higher than high on a chorus of sighs

Floating who knows where

I’ll live the dream with you on our way there

 

Lost in a thought  with you

Team Tymed (TyCobb and syl_a_med)

Walk a Mile

 

Verse 1:

I think I know you
Thru and thru
Never worked for nothing
Never paid your dues
I think I know you
The tricks that you use
You can’t learn a thing
Walking in your daddy’s shoes

Verse 2:

You think you know me?
You ain’t got a clue
Don’t know what made me 
Don’t know what I been through

You think you know me?
Well brother I got some news
You won’t know a thing
Til you walk a mile in my shoes

Chorus:

My shoes
My shoes
Ooo

Verse 3:

So you don’t know me
And I don’t know you
With some time
We can find out what is true
Yeah you don’t know me
But I know what to do
We won’t know a thing til we
Walk a mile in them shoes

Bridge:

Now I’m walking on the ground
Thinking of the path to choose
My enemy becomes my friend
When he walks a mile in my shoes

[Chorus]

Dancing shoes

Team Lyres

 

Music: The S

Lyrics: Lyrical

 

Dancing shoes

 

Well I never had much
Always was poor
But saved a few dimes
For the dancing floor
I’d swing the girls round
’Cause they’d never refuse
Till I wore through the soles
Of my dancing shoes

 

There was one girl I met 
So light on her feet
Her long hair would swirl
As we twirled to the beat
She put on some weight
Then she gave me the news
And I thought I’d float out
Of my dancing shoes
 
Found a small place, made it our home
Then the cruel bank... called back the loan
Oh she took our girl moved away
I long for them everyday
I’m like a sun with fading rays
 
When the radio plays 
A song from those times
I’ll comb through my coins 
For a handful of dimes
But I can’t go back
It would give me the blues
’Cause I just don’t feel right
In my dancing shoes

Team Spider:

Song: Sole Mates

Lyric: Carl B

Music: DinoRider

 

 

 

 

 

Sole Mates

 

We are sole mates  
Who belong together   
In rain, snow or shine   
Walking through any weather  oh, oh, oh, oh

 

We are sole mates
Who will take things in stride   
A pair of a kind
Made for the left and right side  oh, oh, oh, oh

 

An assortment of colors
Twins for the feet
Leaving home without one
Would be incomplete

 

We are sole mates
Who can comfort a heel
Just adding support
For a well cushioned feel  oh, oh, oh, oh 

 

An assortment of colors
Twins for the feet
Leaving home without one
Would be incomplete

 

We are sole mates  
Who belong together   
In rain, snow or shine   
Walking through any weather  oh, oh, oh, oh
