Tennis My Emotions Are Blinding

Women are much closer to nature

So but can’t you understand

Binary opposition

Hits me like a divine plan

I get hysterical, oh oh

It’s empirical, oh yeah

I get hysterical, oh oh

It’s empirical, oh yeah

My emotions, they are blinding

This is one night I can’t go on surviving

Tell me one truth worth confiding

Baby, don’t you know that my love is binding

My emotions, they are blinding

This is one night I can’t go on surviving

Strike me like a sacred vision

If the night goes exactly as planned

I’ll be giving all my attention

To the world’s most interesting man

I’m just a vehicle, oh oh

For the material, oh yeah

I’m just a vehicle

And I won’t be back again

My emotions, they are blinding

This is one night I can’t go on surviving

Tell me one truth worth confiding

Baby, don’t you know that my love is binding?

My emotions, they are blinding

This is one night I can’t go on surviving

Tell me one truth worth confiding

Baby, don’t you know that my love is binding?

It’s metaphorical

For the categorical

It’s metaphorical

For the categorical

I get hysterical

It’s empirical

I get hysterical

Tennis Long Boat Pass

Darling you know I love you

I love you

Oh oo oh oo oh

I’ll stay if you ask me to

Ask me to

Oh oo oh oo oh

We spent the night at Long Boat Key

It drained the confidence out of me

The littered shoals wait to ensnare

Oh sailor you had better beware

Ooooo

Darling you know I love you

I love you

Oh oo oh oo oh

I’ll stay if you ask me to

Ask me to

Oh oo oh oh

Standin’ there looking so sweet

Tell me that I’m braver than I think

The steep waves breaking were the only sound

Reminding me that we’re not aground

You know that I will never forget

The days we spent anchored at

Long boat pass, Long boat pass

Let me through is all I ask

Long boat pass, Long boat pass

Let me through is all I ask

Please let me through

We must return to sea

We must make due

The waves crash mercilessly

Tennis Take Me Somewhere

I get the tiller, you get the line

Crystalline water with manta ray shine

Annapolis ships heel and dip

Swift Rangers’ lines clean and sleek

Does the mainsheet remind you of me?

Do nautical things make you miss the sea?

Make fast the lines, please don’t waste anytime

Oh, I feel the wind blowing

Sultry in the summer heat.

I know with you we can’t be beat.

Take me somewhere.

Take me somewhere.

Take me somewhere.

Why don’t you take me somewhere?

Sittin’ in the sand

Waitin’ for you to return to land

Sittin’ in the sand

Waitin’ for you to return to land

Oh, take me somewhere

Take me somewhere

Take me somewhere

Why don’t you take me somewhere?

Tennis Cape Dory

Take me out, baby

I want to go sail tonight

I can see ocean floor in the pale moon light

Ooh… Lets explore the sheltered banks ’til the morning light

And we won’t turn back ’til the shoreline is out of sight

Ooh… ooh… woah… ooh… ooh…

We can play in the surf holding hands

And nap through the day on sun bathed sands

We can live on an island of old conch shells

We can listen to the sound of the ocean swells

Ooh… ooh… woah… ooh… woah… ooh

Do you want to go where it never snows

And the mid-sixties are the extreme lows

Well, I know a place hidden by the sea

We drift all day in the gentle reef

Ooh…

Shalala… shalala… shalala… ooh…

Tennis Dimming Light

Silently you slip through the way

Graceful, you move beneath the living room

I know it’s you

A vision I held in the night

Of rivers that run dry

Although you’re lyin’ next to me

I know that you’re not mine

Is it even enough to know what you’re lookin’ for?

Is it ever enough to have what you’re waitin’ for? ah ah ah aah

When the night comes we will be restored

You’re the one that I love

Silently you slip through the way

Graceful, you move beneath the living room

I know it’s you

If I could fall on any phrase

Or hold a steady gaze

And maybe you’d appeared to me

Transparent as the day

Is it ever enough to know what you’re lookin’ for?

Is it ever enough to have what you’re waitin’ for? ah ah ah aah

When the night comes we will be restored

You’re the one that I love

Is it ever enough to know what you’re lookin’ for?

Is it ever enough to have what you’re waitin’ for? ah ah ah aah

When the night comes we will be restored

You’re the one that I love

Oh oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Tennis South Carolina

South Carolina where the Cypress grow

White pine and hemlock all seem to know

The tidal sweep through your southern marsh

The squall last night was a little harsh

Your little island lees give us shelter from the seas

Oh no, what was that, a no-ce-um attack

The sun is sinking awfully fast

Can we make it last

We can’t move on by looking back

Can we make it last

South Carolina really makes a man

If The South can’t do it then no one can

The morning breeze is my favorite part

Carry South Carolina deep in my heart

We’ll make a family in the quiet country

You and me, in simplicity

Tennis Timothy

Jot some things down on a list

Under the header, “Things to Fix”

It’s wrong, I know

But I can’t let go

You were always quick to judge

Baby, you were slow to love

It hurts, I know

But I can’t let go

Timothy, say something sweet to me

Say it slowly until you believe

Tell me that you find increasingly

Elements of merit within me

Seems like nature cannot help

But incriminate itself

It’s hard, I know

But I can’t let go

Baby, you are either-or

And I’m the other at the door

It’s wrong, I know

But I can’t let go

Timothy, say something sweet to me

Say it slowly until you believe

Tell me that you increasingly

Elements of merit within me

A hard heart will make a man blind

And a hard heart gets harder with time

It’s wrong, I know

I can’t let go [x2]

Timothy, say something sweet to me

Say it slowly until you believe

Tell me that you find increasingly

Elements of merit within me

A hard heart will make a man blind

And a hard heart gets harder with time

It’s wrong, I know

I can’t let go [x3]

Tennis Please Don’t Ruin This For Me

Have you heard a serpent speak?

Would you lift a veil to take a peek?

Hold a mirror up to me

Mirror back my unbelief

Please don’t ruin this for me

I have everything I need

Please don’t ruin this for me

I have everything I need, yeah

Build an alter, stoke the flame

Speak half truths that sound arcane

All my dreams so deeply hidden

Rise up to my throat unbidden

All the comforts I forsake

Like afterlives and divine fate

Forge your own way merrily

Fill the world with new meaning

Please don’t ruin this for me

I have everything I need

Please don’t ruin this for me

I have everything I need, yeah

Tennis 10 Minutes 10 Years

You could have me for ten minutes

You could have me for ten years

I could lose you in the hours

I could lose you in the tears, oh

The feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

The feeling’s gone completely

Those who measure time and distance

Haven’t known a love like mine

There is only perfect closeness

Don’t you leave it all behind

The feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

The feeling’s gone completely

The feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

The feeling’s gone completely

Oh, the feeling’s lost without you, oh my baby

Without you, oh my love

I lose myself completely, oh

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

What have I got without you?

You could have me for ten minutes

You could have me for ten years

We are only single moments

Strung together and held dearly

Tennis Ladies Don’t Play Guitar

Ladies don’t play guitar

Ladies don’t get down, down to the sound, do they

Maybe we can play pretend

Maybe I can go down deep just to be what you needed

Ladies just need your love

Don’t you know you’re all caught up in it

Maybe I’ve been listening

I can be the archetype of whatever you’re feeling, what you’re feeling

Maybe then I can try and give my love again

We’d pretend I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

Tell me what can I give

If all my work is bleak and abstracted

Tried to build a legacy

That will not complicate the future of your own progeny

Maybe then, I can try and give my love again

We’d pretend I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

Maybe then, I can try and give my love again

We’d pretend, I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming

In the end, I decide how much my love can bend

We’d pretend I can be the one that you’ve been dreaming
