Lyrics to “Cactus Flower” by Catherine Scholz

Cactus Flower

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

Honey, I’m just sittin’ here thinkin’ on you.

Funny, I wasn’t expecting to feel so blue.

But darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Now when I said I love you, I did not lie.

Did you mean it when you said goodbye?

Honey, I’d be so tickled if you’d knock on my door.

Funny, I guess I’m not your sweetheart anymore.

But darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Now when I said I love you, I did not lie.

Did you mean it when you said goodbye?

(instrumental verse)

Honey, you’re shoulder’s colder than the Brainerd snow.

Funny, I never thought I’d have to let you go.

Cuz darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Now when I said I love you, I did not lie.

Did you mean it when you said goodbye?

Now honey, I’m not fixin’ on someone new.

Funny, all I’m thinkin’ ’bout is loving you.

Cuz darlin’ you’ve got me eatin’ from the palm of your hand.

I’m just pinin’ like a cactus flower in the desert sand.

Lyrics to “Movin’ On” by Catherine Scholz

Movin’ On

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

Rain is falling, I’m movin’ on.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Placed my heart into your hands.

Oh my soul, it understands.

You came to me quickly.

You caught me mid-air.

You loved me so neatly.

And now you’re not here to see me fly.

Rain is falling, I’m movin’ on.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Love is all around.

Oh my soul, should know by now.

You came to me quickly.

You caught me mid-air.

You loved me so neatly.

And now you’re not here to see me fly.

Rain is falling, I’m movin’ on.

Oh my soul, the time has come.

Love is all around.

Oh my soul, should know by now.

Oh my soul, should know by now.

Lyrics to “President” by Catherine Scholz

President

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

I’m looking for a President

Who knows how to speak his mind

You know I haven’t found one yet

And we’re running out of time.

I’m looking for a President

Who knows what can be justified

This world has gotten so complex

And nothing’s black or white.

What are you afraid of?

What do you desire?

Dive into the water.

Walk through the fire.

I’m looking for a President

Who knows what’s wrong and right.

It doesn’t take intelligence

To order up a fight.

I’m looking for a President

To get this planet unified

Don’t matter if she’s black or red

Or even left or right.

What are we afraid of?

What do we desire?

Dive into the water.

Walk through the fire.


Lyrics to “Last Long, Blue Day” by Catherine Scholz

Last Long, Blue Day

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz, copyright 2008

Last long, blue day.

Last longer than damp night.

Last longer than human promise.

Last a long time…

And If I could change your mind

I’d buy you a little time and

Find you a peaceful place inside

To unwind.

Shake hard, blue sky.

Shake harder than shame.

Shake the blues right out of yourself.

Shake harder.

If I could change your mind

I’d buy you a little time and

Find you a peaceful place inside

To unwind.

Lyrics to “Just Not Like Her”

Just Not Like Her

Lyrics and music by Catherine Scholz

Some say she rations her kisses.

Some say she’s selling the lot.

Some say she’s smoking the smidgens of something she simply is not.

Come drink from her wineglass of wishes.

Maybe she’ll give you a shot.

‘Cause brother, you’re just standing witness.

Remember the love that you’ve got.

You see, this is her reckless memory of kisses and sweetness and wine.

Some say that she’s pining for penance,

dropping light-years down endless heart-mines.

But silence is all she requires for dancing and diving within.

So no one can make her a promise.

No one can do that again.

Can love track her down in the darkness?

She bids love to wring out the red.

Can lovers reshape the old treasons that run like the wind through her head?

She’s never been quite so forsaken.

She’s never been quite so unsure.

Her soul has not been quite this shaken.

She’s never allowed this before.

And it’s just not like her to be waiting around,

Standing alone with her feet on the ground.

No, it’s just not like her to be humble and free,

Hungry for humor and mystery.

Please come to her garden of wishes

and maybe she’ll give you a plot.

‘Cause brother you’re just standing witness.

Remember the love that you’ve got.
