Slingshot

Slingshot
©2009 Tom Zehnder and Tim Gibbs Zehnder

Slingshot, that’s the maneuver
Still dark from this side of the moon
No word, radio black out
Sit tight, this will all be over soon

Earth rise, look at her out there
That’s home and she’s so far away
Bright blue and delicately precious
Where everyone I know just spun another day

Home never looked this way
One bright blue jewel set in the cold, cold empty
Home many miles away
For all of us is all the more home

Weightless in the cold and quiet
Let me tell you what I see from here
Days out going one direction
Swing around, I’m heading back and it’s all clear
(clear to me now)

Home never looked this way
One bright blue jewel set in the cold, cold empty
Home many miles away
For all of us is all the more home

Do do do do do…

Earth rise, look at her out there
That’s home and she’s so far away
Bright blue and delicately precious
Where everyone I know just spun another day

Home never looked this way
One bright blue jewel set in the cold, cold empty
Home many miles away
For all of us is all the more home (2x)

Sling shot, that’s the maneuver
Still dark from this side of the moon…

You Are More Precious

You Are More Precious
©2009 Tom Zehnder & Tim Gibbs Zehnder

Who me?
If you’re asking me
I have to tell it like it is and say
You are more precious
Than anything I can think of
You are more precious to me

Believe
In the truth you see
Don’t you go giving up now
Don’t go lettin’ someone else tell you differently
Come on, read
Open up and read
What’s been written in your heart since the beginning yeah

You are more precious
Than anything I can think of
You are more precious to me

Keep goin’ (4x)

-break-

Who me?
If you’re asking me
I have to tell it like it is
and believe
In the truth you see
What’s been written in your heart since the beginning yeah

You are more precious
Than anything I can think of
You are more precious to me
You are more precious
Than anything I can think of
You are more precious to me

Keep goin’ (4x)

Rain Shine

Rain Shine
©2010 Tim Gibbs Zehnder and Tom Zehnder

nothing beats this scene
just fresh from the rain
our big bad city has a sheen
a long view kissed by the rain

did you see the sun today?
after the never ending rain has ended
can you come on out to play
with every other living thing befriended?
-(yeah)-
did you taste the wind today?
whipping up the clouds it’s all delicious
a light and liquid giveaway
generosity gone ridiculous

rain shine, renders us a fresh horizon line
rain shine, this day, this you, this me, this feeling fine

did you get the sense today
that we and all creation laughed together?
in this moment let’s stay
loving you and all the change in weather

rain shine, renders us a fresh horizon line
rain shine, this day, this you, this me, this feeling fine

nothing beats this scene
just fresh from the rain
our big bad city has a sheen
a long view kissed by the rain
It’s you and me and who’s in between
when everybody knows the refrain
we all at once come clean
We’re just fresh from the rain

(instrumental)
did you see the sun today?
after the never ending rain has ended
can you come on out to play
with every other living thing befriended?
did you taste the wind today?
whipping up the clouds it’s all delicious
a light and liquid giveaway
generosity gone ridiculous

rain shine, renders us a fresh horizon line
rain shine, this day, this you, this me, this feeling fine
rain shine, renders us a fresh horizon line
rain shine, this day, this you, this me, this feeling fine
sun on rain shine!

Mama Where Now?

Mama Where Now?
© 2010 Tom Zehnder & Tim Gibbs Zehnder

Mama, where now?
Where can we go?
Mama, where now?
What do your papers say today?

I’m free
That’s what everybody tells me
But how am I free if Lady Liberty
Can take my Mama away from me?

Mama, where now?
Where can we go?
Mama, where now?
What do your papers say today?

Oh I don’t know…

Why?
More and more I gotta ask why?
Why and where and who and how
Are we gonna change the way it is now?

-break-

I’m free
That’s what everybody tells me
But how am I free if Lady Liberty
Can take my Mama away from me

Alone
I’m just one drop
But many drops together
Form a mighty mighty river
And lately
I don’t feel so alone
With all of us together
I can add my drop to yours
All of us together
All of us roll a river
||: All of us flow together
All of us roll a river :||

Mama, where now?
What do your papers say today?

I’m in the Now

I’m in the Now
©2009 Tom Zehnder & Tim Gibbs Zehnder

Is it out very far? Did you bring your guitar?
I said, “No, but I can get it.”
Feel like acting like fools kinda bending the rules
You know sleep is over-rated.
Come on let’s go – we gotta put on a show
And everybody’s waitin’
Get out of your bed, you heard what I said
The night is still worth savin’

I’m in the now, in the moment breaking free
Anywhere, anyhow, just as long as I can be
With you, with you

We hear the cool jazz from outside of the door
Where everybody’s chillin.’
Now she turns to me. “Can you play rock ‘n’ roll?”
I said “Absolutely willin’.”
We kick off the shoes singin’ rhythm and blues
And get everybody groovin’
We’re feelin’ the heat from a vintage back beat
You can’t help but keep movin’

I’m in the now, in the moment breaking free
Anywhere, anyhow, just as long as I can be
With you, with you

Good God does this feel good!
You and me and me with you
Unsaid but understood
Can’t let this go quite yet I see

-instrumental-

We kick off the shoes singin’ rhythm and blues
And get everybody groovin’
We’re feelin’ the heat from a vintage back beat
You can’t help but keep movin’

I’m in the now, in the moment breaking free
Anywhere, anyhow, just as long as I can be with you yeah
I’m in the now, in the moment breaking free
Anywhere, anyhow, just as long as I can be
With you, with you

Snow Monkey Plum

Snow Monkey Plum
©2009 Tom Zehnder and Tim Gibbs Zehnder

Let me start the water and bring it to a boil
Let me start the water and bring it to a boil
Let me start the water cause I know
You want some
Want me to brew for you
Snow Monkey Plum

Got the water boilin’ and I’m ready for a pour
Got the water boilin’ and I’m ready for a pour
Got the water boilin’ cause I know
You want some
Want me to brew for you
Snow Monkey Plum

Afternoon tea is an afternoon delight
Still I can take my tea late, late at night
You’ll pass on Earl Grey, Jasmine green you’ll have none
You want the one I brew for you – you want Snow Monkey Plum

Let me pour it over and steep it just right
Let me pour it over and steep it just right
Let me pour it over

Afternoon tea is an afternoon delight
I can still take my tea late, late at night

You want some
Want me to brew for you (3x)
Snow Monkey Plum

Moments When

Moments When
©2011 Tim Gibbs Zehnder & Tom Zehnder

We could be laying low, home, at the crack of noon
We could be soaking in the rays of a harvest moon
We could be scrubbing dishes down and humming a lazy tune

Moments when, alive again,
Another chance to breathe, wherever, whenever you are with me

We could be speechless at the sight of a mammoth view
We could be jumping long shadows eucalypti drew
We could be drinking in some welcome rest from all we do

Moments when, alive again,
Another chance to breathe, wherever, whenever you are with me
You are

(bridge)

We could be bowing to the circle with a “namaste”
We could be working on a home-build and hammering away
We could be tasting world communion on a paper tray

Moments when, alive again,
Another chance to breathe, wherever, whenever you are with me

We could be laying low, home, at the crack of noon
We could be soaking in the rays of a harvest moon
We could be scrubbing dishes down and humming a lazy tune

Moments when, alive again,
These moments when, I feel alive again,
Another chance to breathe, wherever, whenever you
are with me
You are with me (5x)

You Tonight

You Tonight
©2011 Tom Zehnder & Tim Gibbs Zehnder

You tonight
I can hardly wait for
You tonight
We together

Finally
Falling into your touch
Holding me
Like you never were gone
I hold on
to this dream of
You tonight

Fools tonight
Let’s forget everything and be
Fools tonight
Heedless and happy

Lavishly
Pouring all that you are
Over me
As much to receive
As to give and to be
Fools tonight

Bridge:
Still I wait
I can hardly wait for you tonight

Finally
Falling into your touch
Holding me
Like you never were gone
I hold on
‘cause now it’s really
You tonight
Look at you tonight

8. You Tonight
 

Ride On

Ride On
©2011 Tim Gibbs Zehnder and Tom Zehnder
My love come on,
Let’s get gone,
Unwind, unload,
On our favorite stretch of road,
Free and clear,
So out of here,
Just you and me
And a little serendipity

Come on let’s ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride on.
I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride on oo with you, ride on!

Hey baby,
Call me crazy
I say us out free
is the way it’s supposed to be
We’ll leave behind
Our daily grind
No detour sign
Ever stopped the sun or moon to shine.

Come on let’s ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride on.
I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride on oo with you, ride on!

Loving you
Yes I do
Like a rolling wheel
Spinning with everything we feel

Come on let’s ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride on.
I want to ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride on oo with you,
ride on, ride on, ride on, ride on!

Stay a Little Longer with Me

Stay a Little Longer with Me
©2011 Tim Gibbs Zehnder and Tom Zehnder

Freeze right there – That smile you wear – all wrapped in your hair – It’s not fair

Stay a little longer with me
A little bit just to be

Here and now – Before you say “ciao” – Can’t we allow – ourselves somehow

To relish little moments like these?
Stay a little longer with me
A little bit just to be
Easy, easy.

Lost in space | Let me see your face | So done with this chase || This walled-in blind rat race
Let me make my case | To feel again our first embrace

And remember all the fun of a tease
Yeah, to relish little moments like these
Stay a little longer with me
A little bit just to be

(bridge progression) ||: Easy, easy :||

Seems that we’re | the only ones here | Draw me near | so I can hear | it’s music to my ear
I’m feeling it loud and clear

We don’t take it too seriously
And remember all the fun of a tease
Yeah, to relish little moments like these
Stay a little longer with me
A little bit just to be
Easy, easy.
Easy, easy.

(bridge progression) ||: Easy, easy :||

Meet you at the farmer’s market

Let’s say we take the day
Let’s break away this afternoon
Oh yeah
Meet you at the farmer’s market

Our love grows locally
Free rangin’ baby all organically
Oh yeah
Meet you at the farmer’s market

Let’s say we take the day
Let’s break away this afternoon
Our love grows locally
Free rangin’ baby all organically
Oh yeah
Meet you at the farmer’s market
Meet you at the farmer’s market
Meet you at the farmer’s market
Meet you at the farmer’s market
Oh yeah

I’ve Seen Days

 I’ve Seen Days
©2009 Tom Zehnder & Tim Gibbs Zehnder

I’ve seen days of bitter cold
I’ve seen days from stories told
Of love found and love lost
Of standing up despite the cost

I’ve seen days too dark to see
I’ve seen days I don’t wanna be
Here, trapped inside my skin
Days of fear sealing me in, but

This day is the day that the stone rolls away
And we can be free when the stone rolls away

I’ve seen days of losing faith
I’ve seen days no hope could save
No floor, no solid ground
Free fallin’ world all around

I’ve seen days too dark to see
I’ve seen days I don’t wanna be
Here, trapped inside my skin
Days of fear sealing me in, but

This day is the day that the stone rolls away
And we can be free when the stone rolls away

Miracles Happen

I’ve seen days of bitter cold
I’ve seen days from stories told
Of love found and love lost
Of standing up despite the cost

I’ve seen days too dark to see
I’ve seen days I don’t wanna be
Here, trapped inside my skin
Days of fear sealing me in, but

This day is the day that the stone rolls away
And we can be free when the stone rolls away

Still Humming This Tune

Still Humming This Tune
©2011 Tim Gibbs Zehnder and Tom Zehnder

still humming this tune
my heart you win
so completely

still pulling by your moon
my tide rolls in
flooding sweetly

when tune I to you
and tune you to me
we’re open hillside and sea
rolling and rolling and rolling
and we
knowing, unknowing, then knowing

still humming this tune
that moved and moves this sea

(instrumental)

when tune I to you
and tune you to me
we’re open hillside and sea
rolling and rolling and rolling
and we
knowing, unknowing, then knowing

still humming this tune
that moved and moves this sea
this sea
