Small town girl with big city dreams. She walks out to the edge of town and wonders what's out there beyond the horizon. Just me and a guitar taking another stab at "folk" music, something that used to happen in coffee houses like Milwaukee's Avant Garde and Blue River Cafe.


Just Like In A Song

Mama says you're crazy
But your daddy says not so
Give the girl a chance
And she'll be fine you know
Rollin' in at midnight
Guess there's nothin' wrong with that
Might not know just where you been
But you know where it's at

Findin' a place where you belong
Just like in a song

Friends they worry 'bout you
Here's what they don't understand
To get where you don't want to be
You're gonna need a plan
Never had a roadmap
Every step is memorized
you got a compass in your soul
And magnets in your eyes

Findin' a place where you belong
Just like in a song

Ain't a drop of rain tha falls
That doesn't fall for you
The moon is tangled in the trees
Shinin' gold and blue
Stars on every corner
You can hear them whispering
Street signs they keep talking
But nobody's listenin'

Findin' a place where you belong
Just like in a song
