Mark Ransom - "Stride" Lyrics

stride
A friend of mine just the other day. Tellin’ me how she’s got to get away. Write it down in a song. You know you can’t go on livin’ this way to long. Baby, baby, baby’s been untrue. But right now there ain’t nothin’ left for you to do.

Chorus
I can see the stars in your eyes. And I just don’t know if I can take it any more. I can see the love in your stride. And I just don’t know what I’m waitin’ for…


Can’t you see I’m a simple man I’ve got simple dreams. It ain’t so hard to see things ain’t always what they seem. Lay it down in a song. You know you can’t go on livin’ this way to long. Baby, baby, you know that I would play the fool for loosin’ you. But right now there ain’t nothin’ left for me to do.
Chorus

Can’t you see love ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sometime’s it ain’t nothin’ like you believe. You gotta lay it down in a song. You know you can’t go on livin’ this way to long. Baby, baby, baby I have come unglued for you. But right now there ain’t nothin’ left for me to do.

joni's song
It doesn't matter what you do. Baby you're good as good, true as true. And I'm not tryin' to flatter you 5000 miles. Away from your sweet kisses and your lullabyes.

Chorus
There's a feelin' in the air tonight. That somewhere, somehow you're alright. There's a feelin' in the air tonight.


Your love is sweet apple pie. Your heart: perfect paradise. Beautiful lady I feel like I. Have known you all of my life.

Asleep at night; a smile on your face. Just like lemonade on a hot summer day. You are the oasis in the middle of my soul. I want to hold you and never let you go.

shine
I was livin’ in New York city 1985. I saw this guy he blew my mind. He played the guitar like it was a star. Shining a little light on you and me. I said man thank you. I love the way you play the Dylan tune. He just smiled and danced around the room. With bells on his shoes the Good Jester moved. To the rhythm of the sun.

Chorus
So if you’re gonna live. Well you might as well live a little. And if you’re gonna give. Don’t make it your own. The Good Jester left us with the spirit of song. Shinning a little light on you and me.


I made my way across the USA. And I heard him play again and again. His fans connected but the oracle rejected. That he sang his own words. I saw him on his way to heaven 1997. He said he’d see me again. He sang us a gospelas he banged on his drum. And he laughed when he told me Windam Hill wouldn’t take that one
Chorus

I said man thank you. I love the way you play the Dylan tune. Just a little sad you had to leave so soon. With bells on his shoes. The Good Jester moved to the rhythm of the sun

great big world
Well well my friend it seems as though again it's time for leaving. And as a friend I must confess without duress you don't need a reason. Time will teach the songs to sing when the good times are missin'. And as for the pretty girl you might as well just leave your heart with her. There's lots of pretty girls livin' in this great big world

Four years and forty thousand tears, man I think its four-twenty. And I'm gettin' out of here I'm just going to need a little money. You know we lived a lot and we wrote a little little-town history. But you knew what Tapscott got and you gave away the Mystery. It's hard being heard when you're livin' in a great big world. livin' in a great big world.

Now I'll never be the one to sympathize. But I'll run the rapids of your tears and I'll hold it all inside. Who says a man's got to swallow his pride. Hide it away... Hide it away

Now you can leave this town grieve about it if you want to. And you can stick around invite all your demons to haunt you. Write a song for science, save the world, be a scholar. Play guitar, shine like a star for a million dollars. Yes its hard being heard when you're livin' in a great big world livin' in a great big world.

cosmic sympathy
You had love man it was all around. A gift from above you put people at ease. And just like the sun shinin’ down. Around you you were easy to be. You didn’t wait you didn’t hesitate. Life is for living. And I had faith in my eyes to see. Another 20,000 sunsets.

Chorus
And I don’t think to wonder why. Look up at the stars and celebrate this life. It isn’t all that big of mystery. We can be together with a little Cosmic Sympathy.


The sun didn’t shine much this spring. And it snowed like hell on the mountain. The winter sky cried a little to long. Like a love song after the love is gone.
Chorus

The seasons change and some things stay the same. The folks ‘round here still talk about you. The autumn wind is blowin’ winter in again. And the snow is gonna fly real soon.

on the radio
Chorus
I know I can write it. Better than the last guy wrote it. And I know the people will buy it. When my lawyer gets it on the radio.


Just got back from the city today. A million souls—gone. Beggars and brokers buying time. Searchin’ for the groove in the Starbucks line. I hear the market’s down today. “Don’t sell out you’ll be OK”. Doesn’t mean much when you’re out of luck. And you just need a little caffeine. You know what I mean…
Chorus

I love to watch rich girls shop. I love to hear that money talk. Music and shoes and cheap perfume. I love the way they consume… It doesn’t matter if you win the bet. When everything you want is everything you get. Some say it’s a cryin’ shame. But I love those rich girls all the same…
