lyrics

Tennis Shoes & Diamond Rings (c) Joel Kachel

What do you think would happen if you kept from napping?
Would your mind slow down maybe keep you from laughing?
Would you lose most everything from your tennis shoes to your diamond rings?
Would you lose most everything most everything most everything, yeah
Would you lose most everything from the shells in your pocket to the hell that it brings.. yeah

Until the world stops moving and there’s nobody’s losing,
Down the road were cruising, Cause the world is so illusional yeah yeah yeah
Until the palm trees with the ocean breeze, but the motion of the ocean
Makes me so emotional yeah yeah yeah
Until my heart stop beating, and my lungs stop breathing,
And the sun stops heating, and the world stops believing yeah yeah yeah
Until the moon stop repeating the world while we’re sleeping, the world while we’re sleeping
Round the sun while were dreaming, so reveling yet deceiving while I’m dreaming yeah yeah yeah

Walking around about three in the morn it was dark damp damp I was all alone
It was dark damp damp all alone I was all alone I was all alone yeah
Under a bridge and man dressed in black with an empty bottle and an empty six pack
There was nothing nothing left, nothing but a mess, there was nothing left
Cigarettes were on his breath, and there was nothing nothing left
There was nothing nothing left nothing but as mess there was nothing left
He said to me, to me, he would do anything, for my tennis shoes and my diamond rings
For lessons learned for his broken dreams

Monday Monday just another Monday, 5 more days till another fun day
I’m speaking for the weekend, I’m speaking for the weekend
Wake up, real slow, cause you never never never know

What do you think would happen if you kept from napping?
Would your mind slow down maybe keep you from laughing?
Would you lose most everything from your tennis shoes to your diamond rings?
Would you lose most everything most everything most everything? yeah
Would you lose most everything from the shells in your pocket to the hell that it brings? yeah

Joel Kachel so you know my name, but I’m not not not here looking for fame
And I would, I would do most anything most anything most anything yeah
Joel Kachel so you know my name, but I’m not not not here looking for fame
And I would, I would do most anything for a new guitar and an ice cold drink yeah
Would you do most anything? Would you would you do most anything?
Would you do most anything? Would you would you do most anything?
With the message and meaning thoughts and grieving
No time for leaving no time for grieving yeah yeah yeah yeah

Until my heart stop beating, and my lungs stop breathing,
And the sun stops heating, and the world stops believing yeah yeah yeah
Until the moon stop repeating the world while we’re sleeping, the world while we’re sleeping
Round the sun while were dreaming, so reveling yet deceiving while I’m dreaming yeah yeah yeah

Summer air you know I don’t care
But that summer breeze down on my knees
Makes me feel so easy so easy so easy
Summer air you know I don’t care
But that summer breeze makes me feel so easy so easy so easy
Summer air you know I don’t care
But that summer breeze down on my knees
Makes me feel so easy so easy so easy
