Now It’s Gone

©2006, Maria Gillard & Scott Regan

Got this coin in my pocket sittin’ at the station
Waitin’ since a quarter to 5
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
Long lazy footsteps echo in the hallway
Keepin’ that sound alive
Now it’s gone, it’s gone

Chorus: Watchin’ these trains movin on down the line
They come and go in just a matter of time
Stuck at the station feeling like you’re left behind
‘Til a quarter to 8 comes to quarter to 9

Sun slowly risin’ Venus in the morning
Just about the break of day
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
Head in the clouds, tryin’ to catch a dream
Just before it slips away
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone

Chorus

Bridge: Too short, too long
Time sings a lonely song
Starts slow, moves fast
Here, already past

Clickin of the rail in the silence of the moment
Just about to fade away
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
Thunder of the wheels signaling a stranger
Must’ve been yesterday
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone

Chorus

Blue Ridge Moon

©2004, Maria Gillard & Scott Regan

Grey clouds breezy day at the water’s edge
Lovers looking back as the summer fled
Storms brewing in the western sky
Wind chill of autumn made him realize she’d be leaving soon

Chorus: Blue Ridge moon about to rise
We thought we had it made
Clanging chimes of love about to fade
Repeat and fade

Two shadows on the dock where we once stood
Step by step we slip into a place that feels so good
Ring them bells and dance, We dance into the night
Take that chance we’ll make it
though the next day’s light is dimming soon.

Chorus

Bridge: Underneath the evening sky
Last light of a long goodbye
Diamond stars in our eyes turn to stone

The shadow of this love can bring you to your knees
Or slip into the wonder of the blackened seas
Some move up to the edge and turn away in fear
Or stare into the silent sky and hear its changing tune

Chorus

Lines in the Sand

©2009, Maria Gillard & Scott Regan

We never stepped over that line in the sand
It sat there for someone to cross
You never looked back at where we began
You never got over the loss
Somehow we sit here with stars in our eyes
Like time never changed where we stand
You never walked out, you never cried
we just stared at the line in the sand

Chorus: Lines in the sand are easily drawn
When waves wash out to sea
Here and gone, JUST blown away in the breeze

We never kept track of the words we spent
Talking ‘til our faces were red
You never really said what you meant
And you never meant what you said
Somehow our lesson is still being taught
It never turned out like we planned
You never remembered, you never forgot
that we never crossed lines in the sand

Jailhouse Baby Jones [Play]

©2009, Maria Gillard & Scott Regan

Jailhouse Baby Jones down in Alabama
Singin’ with her band ... shama lama lama
Wanderin’ in her eye, whiskey in her cheek
Always on the sly at Dixie’s Lost Creek
You can hear her sigh
You can hear her moan
No one’s gonna stop Jailhouse Baby Jones

Well she had herself a daddy but her daddy ain’t around
Had herself a baby but her baby left town
Started sellin’ drugs just to make a little cash
Got mixed up with some thugs and they took all her stash
Pulled out the rug, had to make it on her own
No one’s gonna stop JB Jones

Jailhouse Baby Jones she was good and mean
Runnin’ all around since she was 17
Jailhouse Baby Jones got a pencil in her teeth
Don’t let anybody see what’s underneath

Jailhouse Baby Jones don’t say nothing ‘bout her past
She had a life back then but didn’t seem to last
Now she’s singin’ with her band, dancing in the heat
Laughing out loud, stomping her feet
Some people call her Thelma, some people call her Bones
And no one’s gonna stop Jailhouse Baby Jones

I Remember You [Play]

©2014, Maria Gillard & Scott Regan

A little luck, a little trying
A little truth, a little lying
Big hopes, big hills
Big hole, we had to fill
Long days by the sea when it’s sunny
Long nights when you thought you were funny
It didn’t last, it wasn’t long
We were on our own

Chorus: I remember you, I remember you
In the morning light, when the days were new
I remember you, I remember you
With the stars at night, when the day is through

Fine wine, slow dance
Good time, fat chance
Cool air, hot fights
Blank stares just to spite
Tall pines in the hills when it’s snowing
Long climb with the winter winds blowing
Build a fire, watch it die
We were on our own

Chorus

Broken World [Play]

©2005, Maria Gillard & Scott Regan

One broken promise, one broken faith, one broken soul in one broken place
There’s no shelter in a lesson of sand
Blurs over borders, shifts in the wind, sifts through the cracks like history’s sins
Changing the landscape in a blessing of man

We build our temples; burn our fields
Faith versus reason; flesh against steel
Poison the water; assault the sky
Sit back and wonder why

Refrain: Who’s gonna mend this,
Who’s gonna mend this
Who’s gonna mend this broken world

Blank eyes stare, trouble on the block
One stray bullet little girl in shock
Love falls through the cracks on the streets out back

Peace worker tries all of her life fighting for what the people need
Just to become a victim of somebody’s greed.
No happy ending, no corporate grace, no sheltered lands in far away places
As the world grows further apart, new generation questions their parts

Refrain

Dixie’s Lost Creek

Jailhouse Baby Jones down in Alabama
Singin’ with her band ... shama lama lama
Wanderin’ in her eye, whiskey in her cheek
Always on the sly at Dixie’s Lost Creek
You can hear her sigh
You can hear her moan
No one’s gonna stop Jailhouse Baby Jones

Well she had herself a daddy but her daddy ain’t around
Had herself a baby but her baby left town
Started sellin’ drugs just to make a little cash
Got mixed up with some thugs and they took all her stash
Pulled out the rug, had to make it on her own
No one’s gonna stop JB Jones

Jailhouse Baby Jones she was good and mean
Runnin’ all around since she was 17
Jailhouse Baby Jones got a pencil in her teeth
Don’t let anybody see what’s underneath

Jailhouse Baby Jones don’t say nothing ‘bout her past
She had a life back then but didn’t seem to last
Now she’s singin’ with her band, dancing in the heat
Laughing out loud, stomping her feet
Some people call her Thelma, some people call her Bones
And no one’s gonna stop Jailhouse Baby Jones

Yellow Bird

by Scott Regan

A yellow bird sits in a cage
And sings the blues a yellow way
Songs we choose begin to fill our day

Gentle tones slip between
Hallway cracks and walls unseen
Till the cage becomes a melody

Chorus: I learned your love
Learned your love
Through the years
I learned your love by heart

Life is like a photograph
Shades of grey, a smile, a laugh
Fades away before the scene is through

I knew you’d leave right from the start
Just memories to take your part
So through the years, I learned your love by heart

Chorus

I touch your skin, feel your hair,
The scent of you all in the air
Left behind without a thought or care

I’d follow you down every street
Remember people that you’d meet
Felt your heart without a beat to spare

Chorus
