Open Road

Lighten Up!
by Yoli Rose
Words, words, words - it’s more than that.
It’s from the heart...well,
You know what I mean. I think.

You say you aren’t heard, but can’t you see:
I hear you, but I don’t agree.
Will you listen?

It’s a mindtrip, it’s a backflip,
it’s a minefield, I got whiplash.
What are you talking about?

It doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Lighten up! Lighten up!
It doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Lighten up! Lighten up!

Mirrors in our path, the triggers and traps,
round & round & up & down
What are we doing here?

Misunderstandings come and go, clarify it, let it go,
I know what you mean,
at least I think so.

It’s perception. It’s projection
It’s blinders, not rejection.
Don’t take it personally.

It doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Lighten up! Lighten up!
It doesn’t have to be so complicated.
Lighten up! Lighten up!
Lighten up! Lighten up!
Lighten up! Lighten up!

 
SleepWakeDream
by Yoli Rose

Only dropped by for a little while. I can’t stay long.
Got to keep on moving, down the road to get back home.
Good to see you, thanks, hope I brought a smile.
Take it easy. Gotta go now. Got many a mile.

Sweet dreams, good night, keep shining out your light.
In the end, I think, everything will be alright.

On a branch in an oak tree, up on the hill
whippoorwills will do just what they will,
sing songs, carry on, don’t worry that the sun goes down.
Night follows day, you know it all comes around.

Sweet dreams, good night, keep shining out your light.
In the end, I think, everything will be alright.

Moon comes up, stars shine bright. Fly, fly away into the night.
Sleep, wake, dream. It’s all alright.
River flows to the sea, to the sky, back to the stream.
Sleep, wake, dream. It’s all alright.

Sweet dreams, good night, keep shining out your light.
In the end, I think, everything will be alright.

 
Open Road
words: Yoli Rose
music: Gary Pedroni
Sunrise, blue skies
Morning dreams across your eyes
Awaken to a new day
Let’s go ---- on the open road
Oh, on the open road

Blue lines, side wind
Secret places that we find
River singing back into the sea
Won’t you come with me?
Oh, on the open road

Here’s a beach, let’s stay the night
Watch the waves dance with the light
Feel the ocean lap against the shore
Who can ask for more?
Oh, on the open road

Sunset colors so unreal,
the way this all can make me feel
so glad to be here with you
Oh, on the open road

firelight, starglow
See which way the wind blows
Come on, come on create the dream - Let’s go
Oh, on the open road
Oh, on the open road
Oh, on the open road
Oh, on the open road
