Lyrics

Hiking the Schoolhouse Trail Avoiding the poison oak and the bees I followed my maps and my compass And studied the shapes of the old pine trees I cut a path to the pond Surrounded by cattails, reeds and grass And there you stood eating sunflower seeds From your Padre’s cap It’s a wide open sky I’m riding the breeze with the leaves and the dragonflies You showed me the way down to Iron Springs Where the water runs rusty red We were trespassing on the old man’s land Ignoring the signs up ahead You told me stories bout wild cats And being lost when the sun goes down I lay in the grass and watch the heavens spin round It’s a wide open sky I’m riding the breeze with the leaves and the dragonflies We found the old schoolhouse Leaning like it wanted to fall We held our breaths and tiptoed A whisper could have ended it all We flew out over the canyon Riding a tire on a 30 foot swing Gathered up ferns and wildflowers And tried to remember our dreams It’s a wide open sky I’m riding the breeze with the leaves and the dragonflies

Lyrics

Last night, when I closed my eyes You came into view I couldn’t sleep at all But nothing’s gonna happen I like the way you make me laugh I wish I had your photograph In my wallet It’s sweet, just the way it is Nothing’s gonna happen We’ll probably never kiss We touch, pretending not to notice Its always nonchalant But you’re the one I want There’s far too much at stake Our hearts will surely break See how the melody Flows from you to me Makes my heart beat fast But nothing’s gonna happen It’s sweet, just the way it is Nothing’s gonna happen We’ll probably never kiss

Lyrics

Six in the morning on the number five pier Nearly freezing myself to death Manny comes up behind me a warm and misty breath We put our gloves on and grab our tools Hey baby what took you so long The foreman’s getting mad and all the hoses and cables are already gone Into the dark, fire breathing monster Smoke and sparks, us against the steel Give me your hand, Manny I wanna tell you how I feel Three flights of ladders with a real heavy load Arc welder’s yellin “fire in the hole” Duck out on the scaffolding Manny’s laughing about getting drunk last night in Mexico I hang the pipes, he welds them all pretty Roll up the blue prints, cause everything’s tight For a lost little country girl He says I’m doing all right Into the dark, fire breathing monster Smoke and sparks, us against the steel Give me your hand, Manny I wanna tell you how I feel Out on the bow with the riggers and the seagulls Storm coming in, white caps on the bay Manny takes my hand, reads my palm, I’m in trouble I’m going straight to hell, but I’ll be in heaven on the way Lunch bell rings, time to light up the torches Speaking Portuguese and Spanish, English and Chinese I think half the world’s in that engine room But he’s the only thing I see, Manny and me Into the dark, fire breathing monster Smoke and sparks, us against the steel Give me your hand, Manny I wanna tell you how I feel
