Green Flamingos - First Album
Original Song Lyrics
Blue Sky

Bobby Edwards

Look toward the sky
And let your spirit fly
Close your eyes
You can see more clearly
Head in the clouds
Let your feet leave the ground
If only for a moment
You can reach beyond what you see

Forget what you can't do
Affirm that you can
Break free from this reality
The sun may remind you
Your dreams are blue sky
You will never believe until you try

Even in the dark
You can follow the stars
If you're led by your heart
You will keep on going
This life is too short
To just stay where you are
So just open the door
You can reach beyond what you see

Forget what you can't do
Affirm that you can
Break free from this reality
The sun may remind you
Your dreams are blue sky
You will never believe until you try
Blue sky

Chasm

Bobby Edwards

Living in my own memories
Effervescent glow, I cannot let them go
Yearning for a time machine
Go back to the days when all was better
Or so it seemed

I stop and ask myself why
I cling of days gone by
Because I know
I’ve got a lot going on for me
And I’m happy to be alive
I just can’t dismiss the chasm you left on my inside

Phantoms haunting my restless dreams
I know I made a mistake, but your smile was a stake
Straight through my heart and in my soul
I realize now I that it was better
To let you go

I stop and ask myself why
I cling of days gone by
Because I know
I’ve got a lot going on for me
And I’m happy to be alive
I just can’t dismiss the chasm
I’m happy to be alive
I just can’t dismiss the chasm
I’m happy to be alive
I just can’t dismiss the chasm you left on my inside

Go Figure

Bobby Edwards

I build my confidence up
Just to be let down
But I swear that won’t happen this time
So why can’t I turn back around
I’ve said so many things I thought would give it away
Yet you stand here today telling me you like him that way
Can’t you see what you’re doing to me

I don’t know how you can’t hear my heart beating
And I don’t know how you haven’t figured it out
I don’t know how you can’t see that my heart is bleeding
And I don’t know how there could be any doubt
Any doubt
That I love you

I want to tell you how I feel but I think it’s too late
I’ve known you for all of my life and now I’m stuck with this fate
Will I ever get the chance to make you mine
So tell me what am I supposed to do, how can I get through
And will you ever love me too?

I don’t know how you can’t hear my heart beating
And I don’t know how you haven’t figured it out
I don’t know how you can’t see that my heart is bleeding
And I don’t know how there could be any doubt
Any doubt
Any doubt
Any doubt
That I love you

And I don’t know how you can’t hear my heart beating
I don’t know how you haven’t figured it out
And I don’t know how you can’t see that my heart is bleeding
I don’t know how there could be any doubt
And I don’t know how you can’t hear my heart beating
And I don’t know how you haven’t figured it out

Idle

Bobby Edwards & Jesse Friesen

A couple lines or more and I’ll call it a night
Crafting a melody that I think sounds alright
But I’m not satisfied just singing to myself
So why can’t I work out enough to show everybody else

I really wanna know where I’m going from here
It seems I’ve been running blind and I don’t want to waste my life
There so much I want to do
If only I’d come through
But I sit here idle

My father told me “Son you’ve got to have some drive”
But my foot’s on the brake and I’m checking the engine light
I know I’m capable of so much more
Than just sitting looking at an open door

I really wanna know where I’m going from here
It seems I’ve been running blind and I don’t want to waste my life
There so much I want to do
If only I’d come through
But I sit here idle

I really wanna know where I’m going from here
It seems I’ve been running blind and I don’t want to lose my life
There so much I want to do
If only I’d come through
But I sit here
Yes I sit here
I sit here idle

The Burn

Bobby Edwards & Jesse Friesen

Heavy handed rose in bloom
I am stricken I am stone
Knowing what her words can do
I won’t fall before her throne

And she calls to me so fervently
As a spark she'll start a fire
Though I want for temporary gain
I remember the burn

Am I lost without her here
Standing in a hall of mirrors
No I won’t be held by fear
I’ll break the glass, I will disappear

And she calls to me so fervently
As a spark she'll start a fire
Though I want for temporary gain
I remember the burn
I remember the burn

Now I See

Bobby Edwards & Jesse Friesen

Our love was strong
But my faith in us was blind
My world outside of you pushed us apart
I couldn’t see that it wasn’t you but me
And silence filled the rift between our hearts

And there’s no bitter words between us
We will make it on our own
There’s no shame in letting go
I have to say I didn’t notice
When I let you slip away
Only now do I see
I see that I’ve changed

We carried on
But the magic had all gone
Looking at each other through a thin disguise
We should’ve known that house was not a home
And when the mask has faded we will realize

That there’s no bitter words between us
We will make it on our own
There’s no shame in letting go
I have to say I didn’t notice
When I let you slip away
Only now do I see
I see that I’ve changed

There’s a part of me
That screams “what have you done”
But I’m not giving up
No I’m just moving on

And there’s no bitter words between us
We will make it on our own
There’s no shame in letting go
I have to say I didn’t notice
When I let you slip away
Only now do I see
I see that I’ve changed

And there’s no bitter words between us
We will make it on our own
There’s no shame in letting go
I have to say I didn’t notice
When we let it slip away
Only now do I see
I see that I’ve
I see that I’ve
I’ve changed

Lullabye No. 1

Bobby Edwards & Jesse Friesen

Now it’s time to say goodnight
The day is at a close
Lay your head on pillows soft
And cover up your toes
Close your eyes and dream of me
Imagine what we could be
Well maybe nothing more than friends
We’ll just have to see
