The Little Things – Ryan Stone Music

The Little Things~ Lyrics
Written by Ryan Stone
All instruments and Vocals- Stone
*
It’s the last minute of sleep before the alarm the goes off
When water flows down your back and follows your trail
It’s the early morning rise of the sun
It’s the little things
It’s the sound of the rain hitting the pavement
It’s when your eyes are making contact with mine
It’s the silences and the mean times
It’s the little things
They’re awesome things
In all this, all these things they pile up
The world gets so damn heavy now
when I feel like it might just drop
I think of the little things song
When you’re catching that wave of possibility
in all this boundless spirit energy
When you’re listening to Bob Marley
It’s the little things
They’re awesome things
It’s girls’ feet hanging out the window
When the light changes green and you’ve got open road
When you collect your $200 for passing go
It’s the little things
They’re awesome things
It’s the sun on the water, hakuna matata
Your skin is glazed and chromed cracked de nada
Footprints in sand and we’re hand to hand
and we’re tan to tan
I’m your music man
*Tribute to U2, The Police, Bob Marley, John Mayer, & The Samples

BreadCrumbs ~ Lyrics
*
When I look in your eyes, and all that surrounds
you got me hypnotized, you’re the talk of my town
When our lips collide it opens up to a place
for our tongues to hide and fight for the space
Love is hot, and love is cold
Love’s italic, love is bold
Love’s new, and love is old
It’s ante up, and love is fold
Love is a compass, so when we’re lost,
Love leaves breadcrumbs behind…
for us
The touch from you sends me on a carnival ride
And your curves, they bend me on a track by your side
Every silence I breathe you into my soul
and it turns into music …You’re the rock in my roll
Love is hot, and love is cold
Love’s italic, love is bold.
Love’s new, and love is old
It’s ante up, and love is fold
Love’s a compass, when we’re lost
Love leaves breadcrumbs behind…
for us
*It’s within, take a spin
You can lose, you can win
Put it in, put it out,
Put it in and shake it all about
Hey Love’s a compass BABY
when were lost..
Love leaves breadcrumbs behind..
for us..
*

GO HIGHER~ (words & music: Ryan Stone)

Live your life to the fullest, challenge yourself

create positive energy,

be motivated, seek adventure, feel the rush

as your dreams become reality

Go beyond what they could ever do or say

and attempt at the impossible

break through the atmosphere

and tread on with no fear

as the world beneath you disappears

*

GO HIGHER…GO HIGHER go higher everyday.

GO HIGHER…GO HIGHER and make it a lifestyle..

*

Again and again up and up I ascend to the top

I cut through all this misc. noise

So now im gonna put my passion in action

Its time I reaped `the rewards

Go beyond what they could ever do or say

and attempt at the impossible

break through the atmosphere

and tread on with no fear

as the world beneath you disappears

*

A Token of the Wreckage – Megan Slankard

Lyrics

Well, that’s a wrap, was it half bad? Get me off to bed
I think I’m dying slightly after a day like that

It always starts out dark, sun started to bark, my head stabs like a fork
Nothing much forgiving about the way that we are

And though I’ve got a heart hanging around by the door
I’ve got grace hanging in the mirror
And I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you – a little souvenir
A token of the wreckage

We don’t argue; we’re tired of that too. Spoons clink in our soup
World-weary so young; it probably means that we’re doomed

You say nothing to me; in return, I forget how to speak
An admission of defeat
We’re fair game for all who want a piece of our dreams

And I’ve got a heart hanging around by the door
But I’ve got grace hanging in the mirror
And I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you – a little souvenir
A token of the wreckage

I might be inclined to say you’re quite the quandary
And I keep thinking, maybe that’s my problem: Just stop thinking
Jump on it, step on it, tread on in, stomp on it
Foolish to believe that I can’t be foolish
My head spins, it won’t stop, I wish it would just shut up, please stop,
Please stop…

Like I said, I’ve got a heart hanging around by the door
I’ve got grace hanging in the mirror
And I’ve got you
I’ve got you
I’ve got you – a little souvenir
A token of the wreckage
