about

Out of all of my older recordings that I have not released yet, this is as close to a best of that I could get. Since these songs were written at different times there are a lot of different ways they were recorded. From a simple 2 channel mixer directly into a tape recorder to 4 and 8 track recorders. If I were to do a collection of what I think are my best songs, it would probably look very different than this. It's really hard for me to judge my best songs myself because they all are personal to me. Sometimes the songs that I think are my best get completely ignored when I play them for people, but then I'm surprised when people tell me they like a song that I consider to be filler material, just something you put on an album to fill space. I did my best to ignore personal feelings on this album and only put songs on here that people have told my they enjoyed in one form or another. Whether it was the original recording or if I played it for them live or they just read the lyrics and told me they enjoyed them, these are the songs I've heard the most about.

I hope you enjoy them.

about

Beatnick's Odyssey Ocala, Florida

I've been writing and recording music for several years now. I started with a tape recorder in front of my mothers piano and have gone through many phases. While I started on the piano I do play guitar and bass as well and usually program drums. I'm reaching a time where I'm reinventing myself. I'm not sure where it will lead me, but I'm continuing on with Beatnick's Odyssey. ... more

Track Name: I've Waited My Whole Life For You
There's always been something about you girl
It was something in my heart
Those days laughing in the school yard
And those long walks in the park

Now I don't know how this happened
Cupid shot his arrow at me
Now it must have been luck or fate
Cause you're the one that I'd seen

I've waited my whole life for you
I didn't know it back then
I didn't know until I found you

Was it real or fantasy
Or was it something deep inside
I guess we can't deny it, babe
When our two hearts collide

I've waited my whole life for you
I didn't know it back then
I didn't know until I found you
Now I'll wait another life just to have you
Even if it's just one more night
I will wait until I find you

Forever is a word that used to make me cry
Now forever's what I need with you by my side

I've waited my whole life for you
I didn't know it back then
I didn't know until I found you
Now I'll wait another life just to have you
Even if it's just one more night
I will wait until I find you

I've waited my whole life for you
I didn't know it back then
I didn't know until I found you
Now I'll wait another life just to have you
Even if it's just one more night
I will wait until I find you
Track Name: No End
There used to be a time when you could trust her
When love was more than just a four letter word
But now you see it in her eyes
Behind all her cleaver lies

Sometimes I think you looked ahead and saw it coming
But you'd rather stand your ground and feel the pain
And now the trouble's on the rise
And there's no way you can disguise

There is no end to bitter tears
When faithfulness was stolen by the years
You sleep with passion in your eyes
You wake with the devil in your arms

I knew you'd loss it's a no win situation
This girl's got more than you inside her eyes
And so you swallow all your pride
Cause there's no way you can deny

There is no end to bitter tears
When faithfulness was stolen by the years
You sleep with passion in your eyes
You wake with the devil in your arms

There is no end to bitter tears
You faced the best and hope the rest comes clear
And now the midnight hours arise
You find the devil in your blood

There is no end to bitter tears
When faithfulness was stolen by the years
You sleep with passion in your eyes
You wake with the devil in your arms

There is no end to bitter tears
You faced the best and hope the rest comes clear
And now the midnight hours arise
You find the devil in your blood

There is no end to bitter tears
When faithfulness was stolen by the years
You sleep with passion in your eyes
You wake with the devil in your arms
Track Name: Desperately
Desperately you wait
You want the bait
The hunger, the pain

Desperately you cry
You bleed your eyes
Your feelings you feign

Desperately you lie
The truth you hide
Your life sustained

Desperately you wait
Track Name: Camelot
What happened here destruction of a city called Camelot
While silver knights slowly die
Believe me you can not save a city like Camelot
But bold protectors will always try

Camelot we can not save you
But Heaven will always take you
Camelot knights in shining armor will live on
Inside our heads and in our songs

Wizards casting their spells to save Camelot
Banned to a place where they died
Fallen angels in the meadows of an afterworld
But at least we know that they tried

Camelot we can not save you
But Heaven will always take you
Camelot knights in shining armor will live on
Inside our heads and in our songs

Camelot we can not save you
But Heaven will always take you
Track Name: Love Is In The Air
There was love in the air
There was peace everywhere
There was no war about
Only friends talking about

The world here today
Must stop our bitter ways
Can't you see what is right
What could be if we didn't fight

Love is in the air
Peace is everywhere

See what is right
See what is wrong
Let's not be afraid
But bring peace here today

Love is in the air
Peace is everywhere
Come and join our crowd
Bring peace and be proud

War is not the way
Let peace lead our way
So hear what I say
Let peace be here to stay

Love is in the air
Peace is everywhere
Track Name: It Must Be Love
I'd like to paint you in the morning light
Drink your beauty with my eyes
I'd like to spend my every moment with you
Write your name up in the sky

When the brushstrokes touch the canvas
And the colors start to blend
Your eyes, your lips, your skin, your legs, your hair
Creates the portrait that I send

When the hours start to turn to days
Every moment that you are away

It must be love
Can this be love
Am I in love with you

It must be love
Can this be love
Am I in Love with you
Track Name: Kanyu
Kanyu, hear me
Kanyu, see
Kanyu, tell me what's come over me
Kanyu, listen
Kanyu, lie
Kanyu, tell me all your reasons why

Kanyu, say yes
Kanyu, say no
Kanyu, tell me what I need to know
Kanyu, guide me
Kanyu, own
Kanyu, hold me when we are alone

Kanyu, hear me
Kanyu, see
Kanyu, tell me what's come over me
Track Name: I Remember
The day that I met you there was friction in the air
We got off on the wrong foot, but we finally got in gear
The day that you left me the friction returned
Never thought that it would come to this guess I lived and I learned

Then I saw you at the drive-in with another man
Makes me want to have you back and want to take you by the hand (and say)

I remember just one night with you
What can I do
I remember when I held you tight
And it felt so right
And I remember...the night I danced with you

And when you tell me that you're happy on your own
I wonder what you do at night when you realize you're alone
Does he want you the way that I love you
Or does he just treat you right when you give him what you do

Can you open up your very hearts desire
I think that he's just a fake and nothing but a liar (but)

I remember just one night with you
What can I do
I remember when I held you tight
And it felt so right
And I remember...the night I danced with you

Must we play this game
Your so fascinated, but it won't be the same
And though he'll tell you he will always be your friend
He will leave you in the end

And if you'd tell me that you'd like to start again
Nothing would hold me back I'd be there to the end (because)

I remember just one night with you
What can I do
I remember when I held you tight
And it felt so right

I remember just one night with you
What can I do
I remember when I held you tight
And it felt so right
And I remember...the night I danced with you
Track Name: I'm Sorry
Late at night at a local bar
Feeling kind of lonely and drowning all my scars
Don't know how it happened, I had something to prove
Or maybe I could not cope after that fight with you

I saw her face standing at the door
Looking rather sexy in that skin tight dress she wore
I guess we got to talking and we both put on our best
One thing led to another and I think you know the rest

I'm sorry if I hurt you
I'm sorry if I made you mad
So sorry to desert you
She was just another one night stand

I can't take it back, I wish that I could
Why can't I treat you like the way that I should
A moment of pure weakness is all that it took
Now I just want you back, please don't use that look

I'm sorry if I hurt you
I'm sorry if I made you mad
So sorry to desert you
She was just another one night stand

I'm sorry if I hurt you
I'm sorry if I made you mad
So sorry to desert you
She was just another one night stand

I'm sorry if I burnt you
I'm sorry if I made you cry
I don't really deserve you
But can't we give it one more try tonight
Track Name: Drive In
I've been waiting for so long
For your answer though you're gone

I've been waiting without you
Simply wondering what to do

It takes a lot to realize
It takes a lot to cry
It's so damn hard when you realize
Forever's passed you by

I've been waiting day by day
Will the heartache go away

A Friday night at the drive in
That's when it felt so right
Now all that;s left and all that's been
Is the memory of that Friday night

It takes a lot to realize
It takes a lot to cry
It's so damn hard when you realize
Forever's passed you by
Track Name: One More Night Is All I Need
If you're gonna leave me, baby
Please don't let it be until tomorrow
Cause I don't think that I'm the type
Who could handle that kind of sorrow

And, ooh, yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need

So listen to me as I tell you
There's some words I don't want to hear
I'll just have to turn away
Try to hide my face in fear

And, ooh, yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need

And if you think that it's just me
Trying to confuse these things
You'll see people are the same
No one really knows the game
And when the world will bring you down
Laugh out loud like a clown
And you will see that it ain't me
Trying to confuse these things

yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need

If you're gonna leave me, baby
Please don't let it be until tomorrow
Cause I don't think that I'm the type
Who could handle that kind of sorrow

And, ooh, yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need

And if you think that it's just me
Trying to confuse these things
You'll see people are the same
No one really knows the game
And when the world will bring you down
Laugh out loud like a clown
And you will see that it ain't me
Trying to confuse these things

yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need

yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need

yeah, please don't leave me till tomorrow
Baby, one more night is all I need
Track Name: Swan Song In The Night
Dim down the stage lights
Turn and walk away
Let the curtains close in silence
Shoo away the high-class folk
Kick out the bums
Tonight's no night for the violence
But as you walk away
You look to your dismay
There's a silent man sitting on the steps

You're the swan of the stage
He's a poor old duck
Neither of you say a thing for a while
Then he starts to speak
He says he wants your love
so you just flash him your smile
But as you walk away
You find that there is a ray
Of light in what this man just said

Though he can't afford
To take you to some ritzy place
You decide to give this poor man a chance
You find that he's just right for you
Everything that you want
So you decide to quite your dance
And as you walk away
The owner hears you say
This is your swan song in the night
This is your swan song in the night
This is your swan song in the night
