about

Ukulele Jim Santa Barbara

Don't let the name fool you, this is no novelty act! Call it "Cali folk" with an island vibe. There's something here for all ages in these catchy, emotive songs that bridge the gaps between Pop, Rock, Country and Folk music.

Track Name: You and Me on the Run #2
Be mine sometime
Someday like today
Take my life line
And we can be far away

Throw away your worries and woes
As we lie on the beach and we curl our toes
And let the cool of the water feel good with the heat of the sun
Pack up your material things
And we will pick a new direction and see what it brings
It's you and me on the run

Let's go, start slow
Don't wait, it's not too late
You know as well as I know
That we could be far away

Say goodbye to all of your bills
And your rent and your job and your run of the mills
And the burden on your back that feels like it's weighing a ton
Give up your material things
And we will pick a new direction and see what it brings
It's you and me on the run

I don't want to stay here playing the game
Day after day, it's all the same
How 'bout you and me get away
For one more day

Come on, get real gone
We'll take my Chevrolet on the interstate
We'll drive until the dawn
So won't you come along
And we will be far away

Give up all the struggle and strife
And the troublesome things that always tangle your life
Or it'll all be over and you won't even have any fun
Throw away your worries and woes
As we pick a new direction and see where it goes
It's you and me on the run
Track Name: (If I Could Only) Keep Your Love (Sneaky Mix)
Indubitably
I wish I could see what you saw in me
I wish I could be
Somebody more like the memory
That you have of me

I wish I knew how to keep your love
I wish I knew what you're dreaming of
I wish I could rise above
Those things I said today
I'd wish them away
If I could only keep your love

I wish I knew
What in the world's going on with you
But I haven't a clue
Why you would do those things you do
And say we're through

I wish I knew how to keep your love
I wish I knew what you're dreaming of
I wish I could rise above
Those things I said today
I'd wish them away
If I could only keep your love

If I could keep your love
I'd lock it away
Hold it somewhere special
In case of another lonely day, well
Why keep hanging on
If you're just moving on again
And taking all your love

I'd like to see
I wish I could see what you saw in me
I wish I could be
Somebody more like the memory
That you have of me

I wish I knew how to keep your love
I wish I knew what you're dreaming of
I wish I could rise above
Those things I said today
I'd wish them away
If I could only keep your love

If I could keep your love
I'd lock it away
Hold it warm and dry
In case of another rainy day, well
Why keep hanging on
If you're just moving on again
And taking all your love
Track Name: Love Song #47.1
In the time it will take to write this song
I will have fallen in love with you
I promise it won't take me long
Maybe just about a minute or two

When I start singing 'bout
All the things that make you "you"
Then I start thinking 'bout
All the wonderful things that you do
And you do

In the time it will take to write this song
I will have fallen in love with you
If you listen and follow along
Maybe you will feel it too

This is the part where I sing
About all the time you've been my friend
So just keep on listening
The payoff will be there in the end
Just for you

In the time it will take to write this song
I will have fallen in love with you
My predilection for affection prolongs
Accumulation of ovation for you

I write all these fancy words
To appear as if I'm witty and smart
The truth is I'm really a fool
Who is wishing you would give me your heart
And you do

In the time it will take to sing this song
I hope you've fallen in love with me
Together we'll never go wrong
You'll be astounded by how happy we'll be

This is the part of the song
Where I repeat the things I told you before
I tell you how great you are
And I end it all with you wanting more
And you do

In the time that it took to sing this song
I think I've fallen in love with you
Track Name: All I Need (Take 1)
You don't impress me with the way you do your hair
I'm not concerned with the clothes you choose to wear
I only like you for the way you carry yourself
Just be natural, let the world take care of itself
It'll be all right

You feel the pressure, it's always on your mind
All this pressure to follow close behind
Don't you listen, break out from the pack
Be your own self, give the costume back
It'll be all right

You're all I need, and I need a lot
You don't gotta be something you're not
You're all I need, I say yes, indeed
You're all I need and all that I want
You're all that I want and just what I needed

All around you, in everything you see
Endless pictures of who you're supposed to be
Close your eyes now, let the pictures fade
Take my hand, there's no need to be afraid
It'll be all right

You're all I need, and I need a lot
You don't gotta be something you're not
You're all I need, I say yes, indeed
You're all I need and all that I want
You're all that I want and just what I needed

Every time you run away from all
The things you thought would make you fall
Into a place where you were on your own
Turn to me and I will help you see
You don't need to hide your love
And hold it all alone

You're all I need, and I need a lot
You don't gotta be something you're not
You're all I need, I say yes, indeed
You're all I need and all that I want
You're all that I want
You're all I want and just what I needed
Track Name: Go Along to Get Along (Blueglue Remix)
When you're holding someone
And their arms are cold
When you try your hardest
But it's getting old
And the feeling's gone
You gotta go along to get along

When you feel like leaving
But you just can't go
When you're missing something
And you just don't know
Why the feeling's gone
You gotta go along to get along

Take a look around
At this thing you've built
Before you knock it down
You just might find
It's worth your time
To get along

When you feel you're losing
The will to fight
It just might take time
To set things right
When they're going wrong
You gotta go along to get along

Take a look around
At this thing you've built
Before you knock it down
You just might find
It's worth your time

When you're holding someone
And their arms are cold
When you're missing something
And you just don't know
Why the feeling's gone
You gotta go along to get along

Keep hanging on
You gotta go along to get along
Track Name: Crawlin' Away (The Nautic Jets Remix)
Give me something to hold on to
I need a reason to stay with you
I'm trying to leave here, but it just don't show
I've been doing it real slow

I've been crawlin' away

I let a woman get the best of me
Still, I'm hanging around so helplessly
I lack the courage to just cut and run
Even after all you've done

I've been crawlin' away

The road is long, it's been calling me
It brings me down onto my knees, yeah

I've been trying to stand up on my own
But being held down here is all I've ever known
I wish I had a way to make you see
I just want to be free

I've been crawlin' away

The road is long, it's been calling me
It brings me down onto my knees
Lord, I've been crawlin' away

I've been crawlin' away
I want to leave today
I've been crawlin' away
Oh lord

I've been crawlin' away
Track Name: Song of the Sky (Single Version) [Bonus Track]
I am here, I fill the space
As I wait to see your face
I stand my ground, I wonder why
Will you hear me if I let out a cry
To the sky

The summer days turn into fall
And still I wait to hear your call
I hold on for your lovely voice
When I hear it, I shall rejoice
To the sky

Open your eyes
And see that I am alive

Like a breath becomes a wind
One will end, another one begins
You feel familiar in everything
When all is quiet, it's your name I sing
To the sky

Open your eyes
And see that I am alive
