Iowa (mayone) You don't know loneliness until you've walked the streets of Iowa in midday you have not tasted the emptiness until you stare up at the Iowan skyline, skyline I came here seeking solace inside your tender arms I was greedy and mistaken and in the morning took the first Greyhoud outta here, outta here Oh Iowa your skies are blue but nothing seems to grow I came to you a haunted man but you had all the ghosts so fare thee well my precious friend I'm leaving for the coast You don't know loneliness until you've walked the streets of Iowa at midnight it's like standing on the precipice and your staring across the emptiness of Iowa, Iowa Oh Iowa your skies are blue but nothing seems to grow I came to you a haunted man but you had all the ghosts so fare thee well my midwest friend I'll meet you on the coast yeah I'll meet you on the coast (c) 2005 Mayone Music SESAC

Pocketful Of Promises (mayone) Where do you go with a pocketful of promises inside your coat underneath your hat you can hang it up or leave it where the sun don't shine keep your fingers clean keep yourself intact there's something more everyone is telling me but all I know is what I see when I dig deep into my pocketful of promises all I feel are my hands in fists Now I believe that accidents don't happen yeah I believe in the mothership what I'll be has already happened got a full tank of gas let's let it rip I wish I could turn off all the voices yeah I would call the whole thing off but people think that I don't know my choices with a pocketful of promises (c) 2005 Mayone Music SESAC

I'll Be Alright (mayone) Today I have a worried mind what I'm looking for and what I left behind if I could keep what I gave and take what is mine I'll be alright Today I have a troubled heart the loves that ended or didn't start if I could receive without doubting and give without falling apart I'll be alright Today I have a restless soul what I let go of and what I'm hoping to hold if my dreams come true before I grow old I'll be alright I'll be alright I'll be alright I'll be alright (c) 2005 Mayone Music SESAC

Another Lonely Day (mayone) When your life spread out before you when the mirror just adored you when you knoew you could afford to kill a little time When the possibilities were endless when you were never friendless when you didn't have to defend it or make up your mind Then you beauty faded like a summer day and your friends got married and moved away you were left to wonder what went astray on another lonely day another lonely day When the world was your oyster and boys were in your foyer sons of doctors and lawyers all asking for your hand They came to ignite you and as hard as they tried to none could satify you or fit into your plan Then the boys got married and moved away you were left to wonder what went astray would your life be different if they stayed for another lonely day another lonely day When the sky was the limit and you were never timid when the prize was yours to win it but ut slipped out of your hands Now you drive around this town all day waiting for the light to change dreams vanish and beauty faeds on another lonely day another lonely day (c) 2005 Mayone Music SESAC

about

“A virtuoso in musicianship, Steve Mayone writes compelling singer/songwriter classics. A great follow-up to his breathtaking 'Bedroom Rockstar', 'Unfortunate Son' is another notch on a belt of talented pop-rock ventures with slight Americana bends and juicy roots rock. Good stuff.” -Smother
