Jeff's Music & Lyrics

 



Jeff Caron's music comes from a combination of feelings and influences. Starting with his mellow personality 
and his love of the "care-free island" lifestyle, then mixed with all of his musical influences. 
When asked what Jeff's music sounds like, Jeff replies;
"If you take a giant blender, I mean the size of a swimming pool. Then ask Garth Brooks, Bon Jovi, 
Jimmy Buffett, George Strait, Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney to get into the blender, 
turn on the switch, OK that is just plain gross but that's what I sound like...
A bunch of screaming men about to be chopped up!"

FOR YOUR LOVE  (C. Craig / S. Wilkinson)
(From the Album "Twist of Lime" 2007)

Don’t have the courage that a hero needs 
Don’t have the wisdom that a scholar receives 
I’m just a plain and simple man 
Who lives and breathes for your love 
I’m working hard but I ain’t getting no where 
Collecting wrinkles and I’m losing some hair 
I’ve never been to the end of my rope 
But I’d go there for your love 

CHORUS 
I’m not complaining ‘bout the way things are 
Instead I’m bragging about all I’ve got 
This world can make me feel like shifting sand 
But in your arms I’m solid as a rock 

The bills keep coming and they just don’t stop 
Must be the poorest people on our block 
But every night I get down on my knees 
And I thank God for your love 

SOLO 

CHORUS
 
I’m not complaining ‘bout the way things are 
Instead I’m bragging about all I’ve got 
This world can make me feel like shifting sand 
But in your arms I’m solid as a rock 
Whoa – yeah 

SOLO 

But every night I get down on my knees 
And I thank God for your love 
I’m just a plain and simple man 
Who lives and breathes for your love 
Yeah – Yeah 
I thank God for your love 
I thank God for your love

GIRL DON’T WALK AWAY  (J. Caron)
(From the Album "My Heart Is Torn" 1998)

She looked at me as she walked ‘cross the room 
And said, “boy, can’t you see that we’re through.” 
I just shook my head and I wondered why 
As she opened the door she turned and smiles 

CHORUS 
And she said, “It’s alright!” 
What she meant; it’s over! 
In return, I guess it’s just the end 
Girl, don’t walk away 

So I stayed at my seat and thought of my life 
Every girl that I’ve had ended up on a flight 
A flight that leaves me at the gate by myself 
All they want is to put what we had on a shelf 

CHORUS 
And they say, “It’s alright!” 
What they mean; it’s over! 
In return, it’s always just the end 
Girl, don’t walk away 

SOLO 

CHORUS 
And they said, “It’s alright!” 
What they mean; it’s over! 
In return, it’s always just the end 
Girl, don’t walk away 
It’s alright! 
What she meant; it’s over! 
In return, I guess it’s just the end 
Girl, don’t walk away 

SOLO 

CHORUS 
And she said, “It’s alright!” 
What she meant; it’s over! 
In return, I guess it’s just the end 
Girl, don’t walk away 
It’s always just the end 
Girl, don’t walk away 
Yeah-Yeah! Oh-Yeah!

HERE YOU ARE    (J. Sherrill)
(From the Album "Twist of Lime" 2007)

You were like a circle on a map 
A destination I was told to drive to 
Guided every time I got off track 
‘Cause someone up there knew I needed you 

Chorus 
I have faith, in things unseen 
And I believe when we dream 
We are touched by angel wings 
And given the desires of our hearts 
I know its true cause baby here you are, here you are 

Lying here your soul melts into mine 
And the feeling is to awesome to become words 
I touch your face and look into your eyes 
Proof that every prayer I prayed was heard 

Chorus 
I have faith, in things unseen 
And I believe when we dream 
We are touched by angel wings 
And given the desires of our hearts 
I know its true cause baby here you are, 

Bridge 
Here you are, a gift sent from Heaven 
Here you are a dream that has been brought to life 

Solo 

Chorus 
We are touched; we are touched by angel wings 
And given the desires of our hearts 
I know its true cause baby here you are, here you are 
Here you are 
Here you are 
‘Cause someone up there knew I needed you

I SEE THE LIGHT   (J. Caron)
(From the Album "My Heart Is Torn" 1998)

She never knew how I felt about her 
I kept it all inside 
Who’d of thought she felt the same 
it was something she had to hide 
Then one day I ran into her 
the feeling was so clear 
We grabbed each other by the arms 
And our hearts just froze right there 

CHORUS 
I see the light She makes my darkest nights turn bright 
It’s never felt so right I see the light 

SOLO 

Now a few years have gone by 
That feelings’ still in my heart 
I think it’s time she’s understood 
I don’t ever want our love to part 
So I waited for the perfect time 
When she had no clue 
On one knee that diamond shined 
And then she said I do 

CHORUS 
I see the light It would be a sin to fight 
A lover’s bond that’s grown so tight 
I see the light 
Now I hold you in my arms at night… 
I see the light

IN YOUR EYES   (J. Caron)
(From the Albums; "My Heart Is Torn" 1998 & "Twist of Lime" 2007)

In your eyes, I see all my dreams come true 
When it’s you and me together, all our love shines through 
In your eyes, heaven lights up the night 
I could close my eyes forever, I’d see you and me and it feels so right 
In your arms, I can hold you close to me 
Lay your head down on my chest, I can feel my destiny 
In your arms, always and forever 
As I look into the future, what I see is you and me together 

Pre-Chorus 
I see a day when we say no more goodbyes 
And our love shines through those beautiful green eyes 
You are the one I want for life, your all I need it’s you my paradise 

Bridge 
In your eyes, is where I want to stay 
Deep inside your soul, I know I’ll find my way 

Solo 

In your eyes, there’s just no compromise 
When God put us two together, there was nothing at all to hide 
In your eyes, from here to eternity 
As we share our days together 
I’ll give you all I’ve got to give, plus all you gave to me 

Pre-Chorus 
What I’m trying to say to you tonight 
Is in your eyes, there’s nothing that feels more right 

You are my woman and my wife; it is just as pure as heaven 
When I look, in your eyes In your eyes

LIFE ON THE GULF (Duet with Jake Thomas)  (J. Thomas / M. Schultz)
(From the Album "Twist of Lime" 2007)
(And the Jake & The Half Conched Band Album "Life On The Gulf" 2006)


(Jeff Caron) 
I left Nashville just before noon 
I pulled into Orange Beach to a Jerry Jeff tune 
Seagulls were singing my favorite song 
I guess you could say this is where I belong 
I might be from Tennessee 
But I feel at home right here on the beach 

CHORUS 
Sand between my toes and a sunburned nose 
I’m trying to catch a good tan 
Sippin’ on rum and having fun in the sun 
Listening to a Tiki Bar Band 
That’s life; that’s life… life on the Gulf 

(Jake Thomas) 
Yeah I love to come down here 
Just like the water my minds crystal clear 
Well I’m never far from the Pink Pony Pub 
Oysters on the half shell are what I love 
Well I know it’s for only a week 
But the memories are always with me 

CHORUS 
Sand between my toes and a sunburned nose 
I’m trying to catch a good tan 
Sippin’ on rum and having fun in the sun 
I’m listening to a Tiki Bar Band 
Yeah that’s life; yeah that’s life… life on the Gulf 

SOLO 

I know it’s for only a week 
But the memories are always with me 

CHORUS 
Sand between my toes and a sunburned nose 
I’m trying to catch a good tan 
Sippin’ on rum and having fun in the sun 
With Jake And The Half Conched Band 
That’s life; yeah that’s life; that’s life; that’s life… life on the Gulf 

OUTRO 
(Jake Thomas) 
… Hey Jeff, That’s life at the end of Highway 59! 
(Jeff Caron) 
… Straight into that Pink Pony Pub!

LONG KISSES   (T. Clarke)
(From the Album Twist of Lime 2007)

You seem to know what I’m thinking about even before I do 
At home or in the middle of town you always make the first move 
You know it takes my breath away 
When you let your lips show me what they had to say 

Chorus 
So take me in your arms tonight, hold me ‘til the mornin’ light 
Tell me all your dreams and wishes 
All I want and all I need, is what I’ve got when you’re with me 
You’re everything that’s what love is and long kisses 

People say that the feeling of fate… it’s a temporary thing 
“I love you” and a peck on the cheek, being an everyday routine 
It’s easy to see that they don’t know us 
‘Cause I still feel it every time when we touch 

Chorus 
So take me in your arms tonight, hold me ‘til the mornin’ light 
Tell me all your dreams and wishes 
All I want and all I need, is what I’ve got when you’re with me 
You’re everything that’s what love is and long kisses 

Solo 

It’s easy to see that they don’t know us 
‘Cause I still feel it every time when we touch 

Chorus 
So take me in your arms tonight, hold me ‘til the mornin’ light 
Tell me all your dreams and wishes 
All I want and all I need, is what I’ve got when you’re with me 
You’re everything that’s what love is and long kisses 
Long kisses

MONKEY AROUND   (D. McClinton / G. Nicholson / B. Tench)
(From the Album Twist of Lime 2007)

So, your friends have been telling you
I'm outta my mind, acting all wild and weird 
Shoutin and screechin’, bouncin off the walls
swinging from the chandelier 
Yeah, I've been running thru the neon jungle
I've been chasing every woman in town 
When you turn a man into a monkey; 
that monkey's gonna monkey around 

Now, wait until you see my new girlfriend
I picked her up down at the zoo 
She's got rings in her nose, glitter on her toes 
and a very well placed tattoo 
Now that I been up on a highwire
you ain't never gonna get me down 
When you turn a man into a monkey;
that monkey’s gonna monkey around 

Chorus 
Once you had me dancing at the end of your chain, 
begging for your small change love 
I was jumping thru hoops, doing loopty loops 
but girl I finally had enough 
So when you see me out rockin’ in my little red hat, 
going ape all over town 
You turned a man into a monkey, 
now the monkey’s gonna monkey around 
Come on, let’s monkey around… 

Solo 

Chorus 
Once you had me dancing at the end of your chain, 
begging for your small change love 
I was jumping thru hoops, doing loopty loops 
but girl I finally had enough 
So when you see me out rockin in my little red hat, 
going ape all over town 
You turned a man into a monkey, 
now the monkey’s gonna monkey around 
Yeah - You turned a man into a monkey, 
now the monkey’s gonna monkey around

MY HEART IS TORN   (J. Caron)
(From the Album "My Heart Is Torn" 1998)

The greatest memories, I think I’ve always had 
The ones that hurt inside the most are those of my Dad 
He had passed away when I was very young 
And how was I to explain my love it was stuck on the tip of my tongue 

What was I supposed to do I was just a kid, but I stuck through with my mother 
And my sister that’s what we did 
Sure we went through some heartaches, but we stayed together strong 
Now thing are pulling through and those heartaches are almost gone 

CHORUS 
The love I had for my father was always stuck on the tip of my tongue 
And the hurt I feel now is stronger then the hurt when I was young 
And as each day goes by I love him more and more 
And I know I’ll never see him again, that’s why my heart is torn 

SOLO 

He made everyone around him smile, I’m proud he was my dad 
And I can still remember him scold me each time that I was bad 
But those things remembered mostly I’m now starting to see 
The greatest man I’ve ever known, is what he means to me 
And now I sit here wondering why my father was all of this 
It makes me wish I could have said goodbye and give him one last kiss 

CHORUS 
The love I had for my father was always stuck on the tip of my tongue 
And the hurt I feel now is stronger then the hurt when I was young 
And as each day goes by I love him more and more 
And I know I’ll never see him again, that’s why my heart is torn 

The love I had for my father was always stuck on the tip of my tongue 
And the hurt I feel now is stronger then the hurt when I was young 
And as each day goes by I love him more and more 
And I know I’ll never see him again, that’s why my heart is torn

SOMEDAY I’LL BE SATURDAY NIGHT  (J. Bon Jovi / R. Sambora / D. Child)
(From the Album Twist of Lime 2007)

Hey, man I'm alive I'm taking each day and night at a time 
I'm feelin' like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night 

Hey my name is Jim, where did I go wrong? 
My life's a bargain basement, all the good shit's gone. 
I just can't hold a job, where do I belong? 
I'm sleeping in my car, my dreams move on . 
My name is Billy Jean, my love was bought and sold. 
I'm only sixteen, I feel a hundred years old. 
My foster daddy went, took my innocence away. 
The street life ain’t much better, but at least I get paid. 

Pre-Chorus 
And Tuesday just might go my way. 
It can't get worse than yesterday 
Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind, 
but somehow I'll survive 

Chorus 

Hey man I'm alive I'm taking each day and night at a time. 
Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get by 
Hey man I’m gonna live my life, 
like I ain't got nothin' but this roll of the dice 
I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night 

Now I can't say my name or tell you where I am, 
I wanna blow myself away, don't know if I can 
I wish that I could be in some other time and place, 
with someone else’s soul, someone else’s face 

Pre-Chorus 

Or, Tuesday’s just might go my way, 
they can't get worse than yesterday 
Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind, 
but somehow I'll survive 

Chorus 

Hey, man I'm alive I'm taking each day and night at a time. 
Yeah I'm down, but I know I'll get by 
Hey man I’m gonna live my life, 
I'm picking up the pieces of what's left of my pride 
I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night 

Solo 


Saturday night. Here we go… 
Some day I'll be Saturday night, 
I'll be back on my feet, I'll be doin' alright 
It may not be tomorrow baby, that's OK - 
I ain't goin' down, I’m gonna find a way, hey hey 

Chorus 

Hey man I'm alive I'm taking each day and night at a time. 
Yeah, I'm down, but I know I'll get by 
Hey man, I’m gonna live my life, 
like I ain't got nothin' but this roll of the dice 
I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night 
Oh - I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night 
Saturday night

SOMEDAY IN THIS LIFE    (J. Caron)
(From the Albums; My Heart Is Torn 1998 & Twist of Lime 2007)

There’s a little boy and a teenaged girl 
A young woman and a shattered world 
All their hearts are torn and their dreams are gone 
Nothing else to say just the words of this song 

Now they wonder why he left them on that country road that day 
Just two children and a mother with nothing left for them to say 
And his words remain unspoken, words they wish that they could hear 
And as he flies away to heaven, his eyes fill up with tears 

CHORUS 
He said I’m sorry I must go, that’s what I’m supposed to do 
Only God above knows why and I wish I only knew 
So I’m gonna say goodbye now to my kids and to my wife 
I only wish I could say I’ll be back someday in this life 

Now the pain remains inside them because he could not say goodbye 
And as the car went off the road that day all they could do was cry 
As the fury builds inside these three there’s a voice up in the clouds 
It’s a man watching over his family and he says these words out loud 

CHORUS 
I’m sorry I had to go, that’s what I’m supposed to do 
And now that I know why, I wish you three did too 
I wish you could have heard me say goodbye, so please dry off your eyes 
I know we’ll all be together again someday in this life 

BRIDGE 
Well it’s twenty-two years later, and their mom’s also passed on 
All those years of her suffering, now her pains forever gone 
And she’s lifted up to heaven to join her man for eternity 
They embrace and look down upon us and say to their families… 

CHORUS 
We’re sorry we had to go, that’s what God asked us to do 
But now we’re up here together forever always watching over you 
And you’re raising our grandchildren with your husband and your wife 
Just remember we’ll always love you and live through you each day in your lives 
In your lives

TWIST OF LIME  (J. Caron / R. Wallower / C. Wallower)
(From the Album Twist of Lime 2007)

Friday morning it feels like night,
 
alarm clock wakes me before the light 
These cold winter mornings it’s hard to get outta bed 
I’m dreamin’ of a sunny place where I can clear my head 
It’s the end of the week; I’m tired I’m beat. 
I can’t wait to get off my feet 
At times like these I just need a little sunshine 
Way down in the Keys with a drink and a twist of lime 

CHORUS 
So I’m down here on the beach with my feet in the sand 
An Island cutie on my lap, a Corona in my hand 
I’m chillin’ like a villain in this Jimmy Buffett state of mind 
I turn the radio on and I’ve got no cares 
And the smell of fresh coconut fills the air 
Ain’t it funny how your work and worries can stop on a dime? 
Yeah, I’ll take my life to go with a twist of lime 

Last night I played in some Nashville bar, 
the owner asked, “What’s with that rockin’ guitar? 
In here the folks like to hear the old Hank Sr. clones… 
Songs by Waylon, Willie, Merle, and George Jones!” 
I said I’ve always liked, A Boy Named Sue, 
along with Kenny, Keith and George Strait too. 
But crank up some ol’ Bon Jovi anytime 
Cause I like my country to rock with a twist of lime 

CHORUS 
Yeah I like my music in an edgy 
Like the dual guitars that the Eagles play 
I like the sweet soft southern sound of a steel guitar 
I like the bass drum to put a hole in your soul 
Sometimes a little more rock, just a tad less roll 
I like my Garth, Poison, Buffett with a little bit of Patsy Cline 
Yeah I like my country rockin’ with a twist of lime 
Show ‘em what I’m talking about now… 

SOLO 

CHORUS 
Now I’m back here on the beach with my feet in the sand 
An Island cutie on my lap, a Corona in my hand 
I’m chillin’ like a villain in this Jimmy Buffett state of mind 
There’s a tropical beat coming from the pier 
And the smell of boiling lobsters fills the air 
Ain’t it funny how your work and worries can stop on a dime? 
Yeah, I’ll take my life straight up with a twist of lime 
I’m having the time of my life with a twist of lime.

WHAT LOVE LOOKS LIKE   (P. Douglas / R. Harbin / R. McDonald)
(From the Album Twist of Lime 2007)

Today I saw a little girl take a little boy by the hand 
She said, “Hey you wanna help me build a castle in the sand?” 
They weren’t thinking about forever, or worrying about the tide 
I was standing there thinking man, that’s what love looks like 

Looked a little farther down the pier and saw two people with silver hair 
He was carrying an Igloo cooler, and two aluminum chairs 
I watched them feed the seagulls against the faded crimson sky 
They were painting a perfect picture of what love looks like 

CHORUS 
Can it really be that simple? 
Oh, friends or that first kiss 
Think I’ve been trying to make it more complicated than it is 

For the first time in my life I heard the music nature plays 
One by one the stars showed up and started dancing with the waves 
It was a peaceful consolation knowing someday I would find 
Someone for me know that I can see what love looks like 

SOLO 

CHORUS 
Oh - it really is that simple? 
Oh friends or that first kiss 
I’ve just been trying to make it more complicated than it is 

And as I warm my hands over a glowing driftwood fire 
I just sit there thinking man, I know what love looks like
