lyrics: if i’m down: the mind reels

if i’m down (for a friend)

i don’t know where to go
i don’t know who to turn to
all those that i love
are to close to see

if i call on you
would you know what to say
and if i lost everything
would i be willing to to stay

if i’m down
oh once again
if i let you know
will you stay
here my friend

i need comfort and joy
but i can’t seem to find
any light in the day
any day light in mind

if we called it a day
sat together for a while
without something to say
just let it ride

if i know you
if i don’t know
if i lose you
then i won’t know
anything – anything
at all

Support local music when you can, and when you can’t… hey what’s wrong with you?

Just Another Day – (Video from Buzzie’s IPO show)

My son Jason shot some video of our show at the Orange County Fair. He wasn’t so focused on the show but was making some great comments along the way. I don’t know if he was going for an art piece, but he sure got one. This was shot on a Flip video camera and edited with iMovie. Click on the image below to watch the video on YouTube.
