IMPERFECT…the fifth cut on my newest album

broken mirror

From the album ACCIDENTAL TANGOS

IMPERFECT
(Robertson 2017)

In a perfect world
you would never have to think about
what you say or protecting your heart
but it’s not a perfect world
we make excuses
check our bruises
keep from falling apart

you don’t ever apologize
even when I see it in your eyes

I’m imperfect, you’re imperfect
words get twisted
so you better keep track
I’m imperfect, you’re imperfect
watch what you say
you can never take it
I’m imperfect, you’re imperfect
words get twisted
so you better keep track
I’m imperfect, you’re imperfect
watch what you say
you can never take it back.

In a perfect world
it would be just like a movie
never worry about protecting your heart.
But it’s not a perfect world
we stumble and we hesitate
watch everything we know
falling apart.

THE MAN WITH THE XRAY EYES…fourth cut on my newest album

xray

from the album ACCIDENTAL TANGOS

THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES
(Robertson 2017)

I’m the man with the x-ray eyes
and I can see through all your lies
I can see through your heart
I guess that’s a good place to start

You’re a strip of pictures from a photo booth
all are different but none are the truth
you would have to look deeper to see
the things that matter to me.

I can see through your clothes
though it’s not the thrill you might suppose
your aura flickers blue or red
depending on what you’ve said

I wish that I didn’t see
the things that trouble me
each time I look your way
I can’t listen to what you say

I’m the man with the x-ray eyes
the man with the x-ray eyes

LOST ON MARS…the third cut on my newest album

lost on mars

Long distance relationships suck.

From the album ACCIDENTAL TANGOS

LOST ON MARS
(Robertson 2017)

Baby, now I’m lost on Mars
a red dot out among all of these stars
my eyes are red and my heart is gray
cause you’re so far away

Every night two moons come up
and I’m twice as lonely every time
I’m light headed, bouncing around
I can’t keep my feet on the ground

chorus

every thing I see has turned to dust
I don’t believe the eyes I used to trust
I didn’t think I would miss you this much
and it’s impossible to stay in touch.

 

there’s a hiccup in reality
between me and the things I see
I’m lightheaded and bouncing around
just can’t keep my feet on the ground.

Chorus

Bridge golden halos around the sun
another day on Mars has begun

chorus

THE INVISIBLE MAN RETURNS…the second cut from my newest album

invisible 1

Invisible people could be living among us RIGHT NOW AND WE WOULDN’T EVEN KNOW!

from the album ACCIDENTAL TANGOS

THE INVISIBLE MAN RETURNS
(Robertson 2017)

the invisible man returns
but I don’t know where he’s at
he’s here, or there, or maybe not
he’s like Shroedinger’s cat.

He could be on the roof right now
or could be on the street
he could be miles and miles away
or lying at my feet

chorus

I may never see him again
and I won’t even if I do
I can’t tell the lie from the truth
if neither one is true

bridge
and every day
I go out to the park and wait
he either shows up or he doesn’t
he’s either there or he aint…

I suppose when I grow old
and my vision starts to dim
there are other things that I won’t see
as much as I don’t see him.

chorus

 

MONSTERS….the first cut from my newest album

monsters

From the album “Accidental Tangos”

MONSTERS
(Robertson 2017)

I think I was waiting
for you to show up
I know I’m not perfect
I just cant grow up

I remember the time
we were running through the park
trying to get home
cause it was getting dark
and when we arrived
I couldn’t find my keys
and I was crawling in the dirt
on my hands and knees

chorus
Baby, I’m sad
you went away
maybe I was mad
you didn’t stay
maybe you’re right
it was a matter of trust
maybe there are monsters
in all of us

Nothing is easy
I realize
there’s nothing as green
as your green eyes

but sometimes when I’m walkin’
by that coffee shop
I don’t want to go in
but I have to stop

and let the smells and sounds
and all the memories
run around and round
and wash all over me
it’s a ferris wheel
that’s spinning way too fast
and I don’t want to like it
cause I know that it won’t last

chorus
