I have been working on these tunes for years. Some of them (Easy Street, for instance) go back to the 70's. I recently reconnected with the amazing Frog - Mark T Jordan, currently on tour with Van Morrison - who was one of the original members of the Edison Electric Band. It was truly wonderful to w

Give A Little
Lyrics
Pour the wine light me a candle
Leave the chain off the back door
I may be late but what I got
Is worth waitin for

Time can fly and I'm in the fast lane
But I see a gleam in your eye
I'm reachin out for the brass ring
Don't let the love go by

I may not always be on time
Nobody's perfect lord knows
Sometimes you got to make a sacrifice
And give a little more

Give a little
love today
Give a little
I don't need much
Give a little
love today
Give a little
Just a little piece of your love

These dusty boots still eat up the road
And these old wings still get me high
My past due date is long gone
But I'll be good tonight

You think you see the end of the road
But everybody gets a bad day
If you can make it to tomorrow
All your cares will fade away


Give a little today
Give a little I don't need a lot
Give a little today
Just a little piece of your love

Too many people sit around waiting for the news
Too many people are waitin for somebody else to make the first move

I may not always be right on time
Nobody's perfect lord knows
Sometimes you got to make a sacrifice
And give a little more

Give a little today
Give a little I don't need a lot
Give a little today
Just a little piece of your love
Description
Short Song Description:
Begging for a little piece of love and a little more selflessness all around.
Long Song Description:
Story Behind the Song:
It's too easy to get depressed and start feeling sorry for yourself. One day I was thinking about my life and I realized I would be a lot happier if I treated my wife and kids better. This is an experience that should be shared.
