The Other Shore by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“The Other Shore”

Am G D C C G D D

Brother can you let me be
I can’t take it no more
Night is falling and I wanna be free
I wanna go over to the shore

I’m crossing over to the other the shore
I’m crossing over to the other the shore
I’m gonna let you know once more
I’m crossing over to the other the shore

Sister stash my cash in the grass
I can’t use it no more
Thunderstorm gonna blow it away
Spread it all over to the shore

CHORUS

Brother can you wipe my tears
They are falling all over the floor
Breaking down a stronghold of fears
I wanna go over to the other shore

CHORUS

Can’t Stop Driving by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Can’t Stop Driving”

E D A

E A B7

I got the windows down, the moon is orange and the night air is fresh
It’s so quiet I hear the wise owl singing while he rests,
He don’t say much but man now he has my attention
Maybe he’s asking me the question, why…

I keep driving, driving yeah, yeah, yeah, that’s all I want
I keep driving, driving yeah, yeah, yeah, that’s all I want
I keep driving, driving yeah, yeah, yeah, that’s all I want
I can’t stop, I just can’t stop, no, no.
I can’t stop, I just can’t stop, no, no.

Gonna see all the sights in the world,
Maybe that place where the trees are all gnarled
Gonna make a trip to see them white clay houses,
With aphrodite statues and clear blue fountains

CHORUS

Listening to CDs commercial free
No guys with anything to sell to me
No news to confuse and drown me out
Got no real reason to head on down, but…

CHORUS

So Many Years Ago by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“So Many Years Ago”

G B7 C G C G Em D7

B7 C G D7

So many years ago, everyone was hard to know
Today my heart is open though
Yeah I let it go so many years ago

Now I’ve come to be someone else
The roof was lifted and I can tell
Yeah things are different for me now
Different than so many years ago

Why does time pass this way, I can’t see it have this effect on me
We become what we are now, not what we were so many years ago, oh so many years ago. That was so many years ago.

So many years ago, life was what it was going to be
But now that’s here and what we see
If I only knew so many years ago

CHORUS

So many years ago, everyone was hard to know
Today my heart is open though
Yeah I let it go so many years ago

Now I’ve come to be someone else
The roof was lifted and I can tell
Yeah things are different for me now
Different than so many years ago

CHORUS

I Saw a Sunset by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“I Saw a Sunset”

Am F C G (F G F G)

F G Em Am

Did you see the sunset wash over the sky?
Thought it was imagination but I saw it with my eyes

What is that feeling you get?
Tonight I saw a sunset, a sunset

Did you see the sunset spread through the clouds?
Saying everything all at once and out loud

What is that feeling you get?
Tonight I saw a sunset, a sunset

I threw a penny in a wishing well
And cleaned the sand off my shells
Hoping for that feeling again, oh yeah
Went picking up sea glass that fell
From the stars that can only tell
What they are revealing my friend, oh yeah

Did you see the sunset giving itself up tonight?
Were we all a part of that when it was in sight?

What is that feeling you get?
Tonight I saw a sunset, a sunset
A sunset, a sunset

Calling All Senses by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Calling All Senses”

G Em Am C

Store supplies and save your family
It’s time to act like we’re free
We’re so content and confident
Yeah we got plenty for the rent

Come on, come on, come on, let’s go, come on, come on, let’s go

All these lasers keep us safe here, as we’re dancing we all disappear
I understand now and I’m so near, as we’re dancing we all disappear

It’s this mantis, looks like this praying mantis
It’s this mantis, looks just like this praying mantis

Now I know why I have these senses
Just to break from my defenses
You can’t see it, just sitting there
Look deeper still while you stare

CHORUS

Making progress and we’re blessed
It’s a process, passing tests
All our friends will last forever
They promised to be there for me whenever

CHORUS

Let’s admit it, admit it, admit it now

Twined by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Twined”

E A E B7 E A E B7 E

You have your life and I have mine
We had a childhood and said our rhymes
We go to work and love our families and
Our lives are all twined like a vine

Our lives all twined like a vine

You start on a path and take some turns
And sometimes you just want to return
You go home and it’s a different time but
Our lives are all still twined like a vine

CHORUS

Days keep coming no matter what you do
Bringing the joy and sadness we all go through
All the while everything is fine since
Our lives are all twined like a vine

CHORUS

Freedom in the Sun by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Freedom in the Sun”

Cm F G# G7

G# G7 Cm F G# G7

Her long dress flows in the wind and rays
And her white smile lights up the beaches
We go home together when the day is late
And her vibration is far reaching

She feels like freedom in the sun
Sweet loved freedom in the sun
Energy, she’s energy, oh whoa

Blue and clear as far as you can see
Light fills the sky and her skin is gold
Swaying and dancing across the sea
Yeah her gravitation has taken hold

CHORUS

And I’m high on her starry eyes
As we watch the tides fall and rise
She’s got me in her frame of mind
As I sit in sand and watch her shine

CHORUS

Humans by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Humans”

F C G C F C G

Can you count the paths that people take
to find what they really want?
Can you number the lives that come and go
and still remain to haunt?
Can you total the acts of kindness and care
that keep us all going on?
We can it see through the lands, we can see it with the humans
We can see it with the humans, we can see it with the humans

Can you count the words from all who have been
to know how things really are?
Can you number the days of those stuck in thought
until they’re abandoned in the stars?
Can you total the steps of a child to the end
To know if it’s really that hard?
We can it see through the lands, we can see it with the humans
We can see it with the humans, we can see it with the humans

Can you count the tries of every person
to see how far we’ve come?
Can you number the fields of every being
to sense the entire sum?
Can you total the lifetimes it takes to reveal
exactly where we are from?
We can it see through the lands, we can see it with the humans
We can see it with the humans, we can see it with the humans

Strange New Creator by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Strange New Creator”

F G Em Am (Am G Am G)

C Em Am F

Remember you were sliding down, looking up to everyone around
They said stand straight and tall, but you couldn’t hear their call
So what made you a sensation, known in every nation?
Secure in your place and adored by all 2x

What gave you the call? What gave you the call?
To step into your nature, and become something greater
You’re a strange new creator, a strange new creator
Oh you are strange and new.

The canal that was your residence, was that penitence?
I heard you would never surrender, but you gave in to the splendor
Now you forgive every lie, as you hop a plane and fly away
And you’re off to the president’s ball 2x

CHORUS

Saw yourself as a sideline show that nobody goes to
You didn’t see the thicket of thorns you were stuck in trying to win
How surprised was I when I heard the news
That you are the one who is gonna choose
From inside those grand old castle walls 2x

CHORUS

Mind of Oswald by Dan O’Connor | Lyrics & Chords

“Mind of Oswald”

Am Am/G Am/F# F (D7)

C E7 F Fm

Calling the mind of Oswald, calling the mind of Oswald
Take a deep breath and close your eyes, close your eyes to it all
Calling the mind of Oswald. In and out, in and out.
Repeat until all the walls are cleared and fall

Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper still
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper still

We are calling the mind of Oswald. Now you’re complete
You have really come to shine, populations notice on the street
There he is resting on the water. Drifting gently with the otters
And this trance he is in is real. As he is turning on the wheel

The mind of Oswald is reaching out. Connecting with the colonies
With words that have a great effect on the nebula consciously
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper still
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper still

20 eons and 100 parsecs is not as far as you can get
We are always scanning and devoted to your expansion
An your instinct knows its way around

Calling the mind of Oswald. All matter is suspended.
Are you still there in the mind of Oswald?
Calling the mind of Oswald. All matter is suspended.
Are you still there in the mind of Oswald?

20 eons and 100 parsecs is not as far as you can get
We are always scanning and devoted to your expansion
An your instinct knows its way around
Calling the mind of Oswald. All matter is suspended.
