PEPPERWINE BRIGHT IDEAS COVER.jpg

No Doubt about it

Do you care just to talk to me a minute?

cause I’ve got something I’ve gotta say to you. 

I’m pretty sure that it’s you and me we’re in it,

there’s no one I’d rather say these things to you.

Sometimes it takes a moment to think it through,

oh but with you I knew it from the day. 

I’ve never felt in a way so sublime,

I’m intoxicated and I know I get to call you mine. 

 

I’m never gonna let you go

no doubt about it

As we walk these roads.

 

It’s pretty good the hand we’ve been dealt

I know that I’d be lost the best things have no cost. 

When you’ve got it good hold it all together

no matter what the weather we can work it out. 

Taking it by the minute and living day by day,

savor it I’ve got to say 

I’m intoxicated, and you’re mine. 

 

I’m never gonna let you go,

no doubt about it

As we walk these roads.

 

 

Steppin'

Ooo the days are passing

and I’ve let it go long enough.

Ooo I guess it happens,

you know I’ve been strong and tough. 

But we all have a little weakness,

a voice inside saying you can’t do this, 

listen to the other one,

because you know you’ve got this..

 

I am stepping out and I know,

I will find my place 

I know that I won’t always

see your face, but I’m holding on. 

I am stepping into something,

are there doors I’ve never seen before? 

Things may be a little fuzzy

but I know you’re there and I’m holding on,

I’m holding out.

I’m stepping out.

 

Ooo do you appreciate

the good that’s around?

I’m on my way and abound,

gotta have my silver lined crown. 

The sunny strokes

and you’ll find your folks 

That will understand you.

Listen to yourself

because you know got this… 

 

I am stepping out and I know,

I will find my place 

I know that I won’t always

see your face, but I’m holding on. 

I am stepping into something,

are there doors I’ve never seen before? 

Things may be a little fuzzy

but I know you’re there and I’m holding on,

I’m holding out.

 

I’m stepping ouT!

Dive

Too hot to breathe,

your words are tucked under my sleeve.

Should I leave?

I'm patiently and present,

I'm waiting for you, you. 

 

Days in the sun,

I know you'll be there when I'm done. 

Just passing through,

no one in the world but just us two,

you’re in my view. 

 

Oh baby, we’re gonna dive right in this time.

Oh darling no holding back what's inside. 

Everything is glamorous,

I know that we can keep our hands on this.

Oh baby, we’re gonna dive right in this time…

 

Hope the tide don’t take it. 

 

Times they may change,

uncertainties may be in range,

but stay gold and true,

you know you got me and I got you,

you’re in my view. 

 

My vision my present and my common sense.

My seasons, my reasons, my beautiful defense, 

It’s all in here

 

Oh baby, we’re gonna dive right in this time.

Oh darling no holding back what's inside. 

Everything is glamorous,

I know that we can keep our hands on this.

Oh baby, we’re gonna dive right in this time…

 

Hope the tide don’t take it. 

Taking it Back

Don’t wait for your window,

cause your window may not open. 

If you miss just keep on trying.

The time will keep on flying,

and you’ll get what you give 

So say long and just live.  

 

Your vibe can be broken

from time to time, 

Stick it out and

smooth your mind. 

Nothing is that bad,

gotta switch the way you think about what you have.

 

Taking it back, taking it back, taking it all back… 

 

Cause I’ve got it fine,

in this age 

You may think this contrived.

Because I’m head over heels

in these feelings that I feel… 

And I’m feeling alive 

And I’m feeling alive. 

 

You’re tired of what you do

and thinking what you can’t do

Things in your view seem out of reach. 

Just have an open mind,

and you may find you’ll have it all… 

 

Taking it back, taking it back, taking it all back… 

 

Cause I’ve got it fine,

in this age 

You may think this contrived

Because I’m head over heels

in these feelings that I feel… 

And I’m feeling alive 

And I’m feeling alive.

Slippin' By

Most people run when things come undone.

But I keep an eye on the prize and I know why. 

Can’t let a little thing scare ya,

in fact the pain can prepare ya. 

We all have a minute and a mind,

let me change yours change your time. 

 

Oh my friend,

when it feels good

feels good and it feels right.

Wait for the end,

you know it when,

know it when you’ve got it right.

 

You’re only as weak as you’re insides tell you so.. 

Slip away, slip away doubt let it all run out. 

I lost myself back there,

skipping thoughts no cares. 

We all have a minute and a mind,

let me change yours change your time.

 

Oh my friend,

when it feels good

feels good and it feels right.

Wait for the end,

you know it when,

know it when you’ve got it right.

Golden

There's something about the listening, 

Taking in all the glistening. 

The gold my dear,

can you hold me, dear?

 

My intuition tells me,

I’ve gotta make gotta make my plea.

Get the grit out my gears,

and make and make my way to sea,

There’s something waiting for little old me

 

I want breath in my step 

Feels in my skin 

So I know,

oh I know that I’m here

and I am in 

'Cause nothing is better

than your sweet soul kisses

They make me miss,

make me miss this 

Come on come on boy

and take me anyway to any day. 

 

It’s all in the positioning,

oh how you do,

how you view. 

Making mountains out of mole hills,

turning negative to positive thrills. 

Gotta make

gotta make my way to the sea, 

There’s something waiting for little old me. 

 

I want breath in my step 

Feels in my skin 

So I know,

oh I know that I’m here

and I am in 

Because nothing is better

than your sweet soul kisses

They make me miss,

make me miss this 

Come on come on boy

and take me anyway to any day. 

The Warm Up

Pepperrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Keep it Classy

Make waves and do. 

Don’t fall in line,

pretend you've got time. 

Don’t listen to no,

negative fears 

You gotta lift yourself up,

you are enough. 

 

Keep it soulful,

Keep it classy,

keep it honest

You’ve gotta listen to me 

 

Nobody’s gonna do it for you. 

Gotta wake up each day try,

and feel it on your face.

Nobody’s gonna do it for you.

 

You may think it’s useless,

but you’ve gotta stop making those excuses…

Nobody’s

gonna

do it for you,

But you, yourself and

you, yourself and

you, yourself and you...

 

You all gotta stop,

with the judgement 

Build up not down

let go of grudges.

If we could all

be a little kinder,

be a little wiser

come out from our disguises… 

 

Keep it soulful,

Keep it classy,

keep it honest

You’ve gotta listen to me 

 

Nobody’s gonna do it for you. 

Gotta wake up each day try,

and feel it on your face.

Nobody’s gonna do it for you.

 

You may think it’s useless,

but you’ve gotta stop making those excuses…

Nobody’s

gonna

do it for you,

But you, yourself and

you, you yourself and

you, you yourself and you...

Mr. Beatsmith

Standing in the back of my open mind 

I’ve got a feeling mine is one of kind. 

Looking around everyone’s disposed and I froze, 

I suppose that's how it goes. 

 

It is all an experience,

or is it a coincidence that

I have landed here,

the road is unclear,

I’m thankful everyday in my years. 

Illuminate

Take your hat off,

shake your shoes

forgetting all your everyday blues 

Finding yourself

in one place

that doesn’t feel right. 

But you’ve got that appetite,

you can't deny it you can’t fight 

What’s given to you and it's your right 

So why the long face?

there’s still time.

 

Is it what you do,

or what you don’t do that defines you, too?

It’s the things you are,

the things we’re being

the things we’re seeing

Forget about keeping it straight - illuminate you. 

Be wild and free,

anything you can. 

 

I’ve got mine, you’ve got yours

taking the high road all I see are open doors, 

Finding yourself

in one place that just feels right 

But you’ve got that appetite,

you can’t deny it you can’t fight

what's given to you and its your right 

So why the long face?

there’s still time. 

 

Is it what you do,

or what you don’t do that defines you, too?

It’s the things you are,

the things we’re being

the things we’re seeing

Forget about keeping it straight - illuminate you. 

Be wild and free,

anything you can. 

Little World

I remember thinking,

that we would have it figured it out. 

But you can't stop from blinking,

it may not turn to be what you’ve dreamed about.

I know in my gut,

stuck in a rut 

Nowhere to go but up

Thinking sideways but I'm stuck… 

 

You've got to know

You've got to say 

Loose ends and doubts get in your way. 

And all you know

and all you've heard 

Is in your little world. 

 

I wonder where I would be 

If I had stepped out of my turn. 

Would I still be me?

Learned what I've learned?

felt the same burns?

I know in my gut,

stuck in a rut,

nowhere to go but up, 

Thinking sideways but I'm stuck.. 

 

You've got to know 

You've got to say 

Loose ends and doubts get in your way. 

And all you know

and all you've heard 

Is in your little world.
