    Just sitting back trying to recapture a little of the glory of...

    Glory days - yeah, they'll pass you by,
    Glory days - in the wink of a young girl's eye.

    Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out,
    Packing up our bags, maybe heading south.
    I'm thirty-five, we got a boy of our own now.
    Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said, Son, take a good look around,
    This is your hometown.

    My only general rule was to steer away from things I played with the band over the past couple of tours. I was interested in re-shaping the Rising material for live shows, so people could hear the bare bones of that.

    No, I always felt that amongst my core fans- because there was a level of popularity that I had in the mid '80s that was sort of a bump on the scale- they fundamentally understood the values that are at work in my work.

    Ought to be easy, ought to be simple enough:
    Man meets woman, and they fall in love,
    But the house is haunted and the ride gets rough.
    You got to learn to live with what you can't rise above.

    Out of the east on an Irish stallion came bounty hunter Dan
    His heart quickened and burdened by the need to get his man
    He found Pete peacefully fishing by the river, pulled his gun and got the drop
    He said, Pete, you think you've changed, but you have not.

    Plus, you know, when I was young, there was a lot of respect for clowning in rock music - look at Little Richard. It was a part of the whole thing, and I always also believed that it released the audience.

    rich man wanna be king
    And a king ain't satisfied
    till he rules everything.
