Love is Driving... Julie Christensen

In the bed of your old pickup
Smells like rain in the mountains
Draw the clouds on my eyes
(Kiss me quick)
And paint my face like the evening sky
Take me down and follow me up high
In the bed of your old pickup

Closer to the stars in the mountains
I'll hum the blues in your ears
(Kiss me quick)
We'll take the road slow till we're in the clear
We're gonna ride and love is gonna steer
In the bed of your old pickup

I'll be riding up the mountain with my hair flying
Hold my hand up in the air to feel the wind
Turn down your radio and sing to me of the road
And the road can be the rhythm
And the road'll be the rhythm
And the road'll be the rhythm
And the road'll be the rhythm
In the bed of your old pickup

It's late at night in the mountains
Oh, lay down with me
(Kiss me quick)
Take a moonbath and feel like falling
I do not hear the city calling
From the bed of your old pickup
Not from the bed of your old pickup

Love is Driving
Track Name: Thunderhead
Thunderhead
Julie Christensen

I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain

I can't eat unless you cook for me, baby
All day long I sit and watch the clouds form
I don't know what keeps me goin' this way
I could get blown away or drown in that storm
Oh honey you love me like you don't know when to quit
Somebody opened up the floodgates this time

I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
But then you tumbled instead
Out of a Thunderhead
Out of a Thunderhead

Yours is the voice I hear before I go to sleep
And I dream about you all night long
And then I wake up just so I can think about you and me
And the ground we walk is rumblin' so strong
Aw well it feels all warm and peaceful out
Just about to bust wide open like a landmine

I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
But then you tumbled instead
Out of a Thunderhead

Well it's not like I had to seek you out
Cause you've been close by close by close by
Ooh and one kiss is all I'm talkin' about
And I know why I know why I know why I know why

I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
But then you tumbled instead
Out of a Thunderhead
Oh

I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
I just wanted a little rain
All I wanted was a little rain....
Track Name: Blues On My Street
There's a lotta Blues on My Street
And I just couldn't sleep
So I walked all up and down the street
Trying to lose some
To make me feel better

There's a lotta Blues on My Street
And I still couldn't sleep
So I walked all around trying to get some
To maybe make me feel better

A pink and yellow cartoon girl
Is looking out of my window
On to the technicolor neighborhood
One color we all got in our world
And that is blue

There's a lotta Blues on My Street
And I still couldn't sleep
So I walked all up and down the block trying to find some
To maybe make me feel better

Here come the blues to my head
Creeping in through my window
On to the patterns of my dreams
One color we all got in our bed
And that is blue

Tiny blue balloons on the sidewalk
Dying that makes no sense
Black and blues
Bandanna blues
Choose your blues
Oh.

There's a lotta Blues on My Street
And I still couldn't sleep
So I walked all around trying to get some
To maybe make me feel better
