SUMMERTIME ON THE STREET SIDE (c). Words & Music: Frank Falvo

Posted by frankfalvo on November 8, 2013 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (0)

It's either feast or its famine

Lucky me I've got the time

Standing under cloudy blue skies

It's so hard, but I'm doing fine


Always been a dreamer

Gazing up to look at the stars

Just another face in the crowd

It's so hard to get over the line


Summer time on the street side

I got songs running through my mind

As a stranger comes up

He says "Take a step at a time"

"Get up on that stage tonight"

(2nd "You got to get over this fright")


I just don't know what to say

But i know what to sing

Seeing children dancing on the street

It sure eases my mind

THIS IS A LIE (c). Words & Music: Frank Falvo

Posted by frankfalvo on March 22, 2013 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)


As I wait here with this broken heart

Lying there wondering where I went wrong

You were my everlasting love

 

As I hear myself calling out to you

Praying that you’ll never let me go

My souls torn apart

 

This is a lie, let’s go back now

Let’s go back in my arms

This is lie

Let’s go back now, let’s go back in my arms were you belong

 

I wonder for a moment

If this is all a dream

If I wake up in the morning

Will I be relieved, you’re here with me?    

 

With those eyes I know so well

So deep and insightful, it’s as if you’re always in control,

But today I run alone

 

This is not a freak show

See me smile from head to toe

My mirage left to climb

This is not a freak show

See me smile from head to toe

 

Fireproof (c) Words & Music. Frank Falvo

Posted by frankfalvo on February 14, 2013 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (0)

 

As the morning sun

It connects with a X

They say “boy walk straight ahead in line”

As you look for the door

Then they laugh in your face

They say “kid come back another time”

 

Audio files, Mp3’s

Digital dial, ISP’s

Sharing songs, is all so clean

You can fight

It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen

  

Nah na nah na na

I thought you were fireproof

Nah na nah na na

I thought you were fireproof

Nah na nah na na

I thought the bullets would bounce right off you (second)

 

Music can make everything alright

If you want it

It can make you fight

Takes care of you, when you’re alone

Makes everything, feel like home

  

No more boy bands

Singing Karaoke, in slow motion

When they should be playing pokies

Manufactured in style,   has it all been worth while?

Billboard charts is running from the rolling stone


 

ALONE AT MOON LANDING (C).

ALONE AT MOON LANDING.     Words and Music: Frank Falvo 


Why did you have to take off

Leave me alone at moon landing

The rocks they echo with your thoughts

Craters that fill with your romance

 

Moon,moon driving fanatics

And inspiring love romance and myths

Don’t get too friendly and drop in

All I do is sleep, in the middle of the nights

Dreaming of you

 

The lines of dust there filled with your foot prints

Leave me alone at moon landing

As I look up, I see oceans and blue

You’re my sexygirl,  I’m crazy for you

 

Moon why you running away

Are you chasing all that’s evil and good

Here the earth spins from the outside

Are the missiles pointing where they should?

2nd time (Out here there’s no death or destruction of late)

 

You can sun bath on my side

Hang with me all the time

Waiting for the clouds to appear

 

A Guy Like Me

 A Guy Like Me.       Words and Music: Frank Falvo (c)                                                    

We could spend a life                                          

Fighting fires on the open seas                         

Drinking the wine and spill the whisky                       

You say it’s all like hide and seek

 

Have I lost the courage to sacrifice?

Lost in kindness, to be polite

Lost in temper, to be kept quiet

Lost in thought, to be right

 

I don’t know

Sitting blind I can’t see

I don’t know

What’s the sound I can’t hear

 

 

What you doing with a guy like me

What you doing with a guy like me

 

So lost in life

Lost in words

Lost in everything

That you can never return

 

 

Quick get inside turn the lights out

Sleep beside all your friends there all here from school

Get inside and shut the shutters

All the loneliness is for all the fools

 

What you doing with a guy (turn out the lights)

What you doing with a guy (shut down the shades)

What you doing with a guy,like me      (REPEAT)

 

 


Movement in White

MOVEMENT IN WHITE.  Words & Music- FRANK FALVO  (c)


I see the cotton fields and rows of white

Rolling clouds drifting to blue

The wind in your hair, the stage right

I'll always be searching for you

Going to  miss you forever

Though time is standing still

You're a movement in white.  The love of my life

 

I'm rolling in the sand dunes of my mind

Though time is slipping through my hands

I'm sorry if i said your name

Your wearing the red white and blue

You told me that I'd never see you

But I new that long before

You're a movement in white.  The love of my life.

 

You're a movement in white

Red White and Blue you stand tall

You're a movement  in white

Red White and Blue you stand tall

 

Don't take a fall, You've seen it all

You've been there before

 

A movement in white

You're my Movement in white

You're my Movement in white, I love my movement in white


I Close My Eyes

I Close My Eyes             Words and Music: Frank Falvo ©

 


I'm telling you I’m not the man

I used to be when i saw your face

For my heart it was the perfect place

To keep you tight as my precious love

 

I'm telling you i'm losing my mind

It's playing tricks on me I'm blind

We own every night from first to last

Let your true feelings show now at last

Show know at last...


CHORUS

I close my eyes to see you smile

I close my eyes to feel your touch for a while

Just close your eyes and dream meanwhile

I close my eyes... i close my eyes...

 

I love you more than words can say

I love you more than words can say

I close my eyes to see you smile    

   

I close my eyes to feel your touch for a while

Just close your eyes and dream meanwhile

I close my eyes... i close my eyes...

 

Now i know what i've done it's a mess

I've never met a girl like you before

So special so vain i'm in love for sure

It's sad to belong to somebody else

 

Yes i know how lonely life can be

Without my angel dancing in the wind

All of my life i've been waiting for you

But the greatest truth is what you do

What you do...

 

Repeat the Chorus two times

 

 


Then there was You. (Mary Anne). Copyright

Posted by frankfalvo on February 6, 2010 at 6:06 PM Comments comments (0)

                                                     

I was once terrified, So scared inside

My heart was a closed book

So Fragile,hateful and cruel

Know I can’t recognize that other guy

Or that man I used to be,

He’s since long gone

 

Chorus


Whenever I look into your eyes

I begin to get butterflies

Then my heart skips a beat

And our lips passionately meet

You were always out there

And then there was you, Mary Anne

Then there was you,  Mary Anne,  Then there was you

 

When I dream of you, I see no other

When I hear your voice, there’s no other sound

When I feel your touch, I can’t even feel the wind

Because when I’m with you, you’re the only one around 

 

My feet never touch the ground

Cause you’re the only one around

Mary Anne 


Chorus.

 


Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing.            Words and Music: Frank Falvo (c)

 

It’s the state of mind that I’m in

In and out of it so sudden

Your at the corner of my eye

Your like the stage floor ballerina

 

I see you, is that you calling my name

But is there another man in the game

And as I walked up,

But this cant be me

I just freeze up, i don’t know what to say 


Lift your feet up, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You don’t know what you lost till its over

Lift your feet up, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You can be the last man standing

 

As I scream and i try to survive

With these tears i never let fall

I’m in love and hurting but you don’t see

This wired out echo in me

 

Lift your feet, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You don’t know what you lost till its over

Lift your feet up, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You can be the last man standing

 

My brain is splitting

And my conscience is taking up sides

I’m fake and lonely

In this life that I hide

 

Hey you (Yes you)

Maybe you’ll get lucky this time

Or is she keeping you out on the side

 

Lift your feet, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You don’t know what you lost, till its over

 

My brain is splitting

And my conscience is taking up sides

I’m fake and lonely

In this life that I hide

 

Hey you (Yes you)

Maybe you’ll get lucky this time

Or is she keeping you out on the side

 

Lift your feet, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You don’t know what you lost, till its over

Lift your feet, Get off of the ground

Stop laying around

You can be the last man standing

Get your feet up

Get your feet up

Be the last man standing

 

Riding the Firestorm

Posted by frankfalvo on November 24, 2009 at 5:34 PM Comments comments (0)

Riding theFirestorm            Words and Music: Frank Falvo © 


I always use to tell you

Someday you’d be my bride

Our wedding invitation

Said,“in you I confide”

As you reach out to grab my hand

I say my darling “You got to make a stand"

 

Look back on all the things you’d say

That “You’d always be there for me”

I used to watch you ride those waves

As you went out to the sea

As I reach out I see the years

Through the happiness and the tears

 

Dad you never told me

How cruel this life can be

I’m scared I won't find my way home

Dad you never told me

And I’ll be the first one to see

I watch you dancing atop the hot summer seas

I watch you dancing atop the hot summer seas

Dad come home with me

Riding the firestorm

Riding the firestorm

 

You’d pick me up when I’d fall

Dust me off and then

Encourage me to get back on

That horse and ride again

As you reach out to grab my hand

You say “My son take your mum and flee"

And I say “Dad come home with me”

 

Did you heed the warning’s

Didn’t you hear them both calling

All your life’s work it’s all

Burning to the ground

But you'll be lost, and never found

It’s all burning to the ground

But you'll be lost and never found

 

Dad you never told me

How cruel this life can be

I’m scared I wont find my way home

Dad you never told me

And I’ll be the first one to see

I watch you dancing atop the hot summer seas

I watch you dancing atop the hot summer seas

Dad come home with me

Riding the firestorm

Riding the firestorm

 

(Spoken in Sons voice)

 

Hey Dad you never told me

Hey Dad you never told me

How cruel this life can be

Hey Dad i wish you told me

As I throw your ashes to the sea

Riding the Fire, the Firestorm

Riding the Fire, the Firestorm (come back Dad)

Riding the Fire, the Firestorm

Riding the Fire, the Firestorm
