Track Name: This Is Love
all the times that I have waited for you, you never said a word
all the times that I have prayed for you, you didn't want to know
this is love in all it's bright spendor
this is love in all it's sweet pain
let it rain all over me

you were lying when I first saw you
worn out in the car
I approached you in my stupid way
you let me find you there
grew into love....

let it rain let it rain let them do what they will
let the same things happen over and over
I will never be a bricklayer,with his bucket and his grime
I will never work a liquor store, though I've been there many times
I'm a slightly weird musician, and I walk a fragile line
but I know love....
I will be free...

Track Name: Bereft
I loved you pretty well
we had joy
but then I lost you oh well
happens to every girl and boy
in a wheel we stand
and then we turn around

And we are bereft and grieving
waiting for them all to leave
When will you all be leaving
Bereft and Grieving
Over-achieving
Dance to be deceiving

I loved you very well
I was believing
that it would never end
and then the leaving
turning my face to tomorrow
I'll get by without you

Chorus

I'm leaving this place
It's enough more than enough my friends
I'm leaving

Chorus...
Track Name: Can't Stay Mad At You
I can't stay mad at you baby
cause I got better things to do
I shouldn't eat out my heart
but you know I do sometimes

the feast is on the table
why does it take so long to find out
it's a horrible world
but you can't let that get to you

I'm in love with you
and you're a shining light in my darkest night
so throw me a bone and I'll be happy

all through the day
all through the night
I remember all my time with you
everything we did everything we said
shining like a fire in my head

I can't stay mad at your baby
cause I got better things to do
I can't stay mad at you
cause I love you

that's what we need
everybody needs love
we need love
that's what we need

(instrumental)

I walk a thousand miles to shake off the Devil
trying to make me hate everybody
trying to make me give up oh no
cause you're a shining light in my darkness
and I need you by my side
when you can

Love is something we all need
something you can't shoot your way to
something you can't bomb your way to
drone your way to oh no
it's a human thing
not a machine

(choir)
Track Name: Flying So High
got run over by 2 beautiful young girls in a Chevrolet
they were laughing and looking straight at me
but they didn't stop and they hit me
and I flew up in the air
and I was
flying so high flying so high
flying so high

went by Boston went by Rye
flew over New York
went by Miami
Havana Mozambique Tirana
Hamburg Amsterdam London town
I was I was
flying so high flying so high
thought I'd have to come down

But I did and I would up in the same place with the same body
but I saw his face and he took me to the charm school
what's the rule?
you gotta let them kick you around sometimes
and I was I was
flying so high....
though I'd never have to come down...
flying so high....
Track Name: Kentucky Mountains
Sleep Father of movement
how many times will I lay in your arms
Mother of dreams
how many secrets and sweet unions before the morning

Awake during my rest
How many times will you sit by my side
and sweet loving feelings
drift in between us as we close our eyes

In the Kentucky Mountains
there is nothing so deep
as the peace in the mountains
when the rocks are asleep

woo woo sweetie pie etc

Red Eagle he sits on my shoulder
flies with my spirit through the moods all my moods
by which I slay him
but I always remember to chant his name

In the Kentucky Mountains.....
when the rock star's asleep
Track Name: Keep Your Head Down
keep your head down
don't make a sound
we'll walk away someday
in this place we're on our own
but this love is real
stand by me while the color fades
stand by me 'cross the naked blade
stand by me I wanna know you very well
time will tell

keep your head down...
don't let them know how you feel
all you've been through can't be for nothing
not if there's any justice in this world
take my hand and don't give up
we'll make it to the promised land
it's all right
doesn't matter what happens to us

keep your head down
don't make a sound
this world's on a course for destruction
we've been saved, don't have to worry
this is just the introduction

stand by me...keep your head down
Track Name: Tomorrow 2
Cold in my fingers
Cold in my toes
No one around
to pick up my clothes
I'm older than yesterday
but what about tomorrow
tomorrow tomorrow
may not come

Somebody told me
a long time ago
I was on a course for destruction
I'm glad that I listened
cause what about tomorrow
tomorrow tomorrow
may not come

You can have it
life on earth
you can have it
what is it worth
I"m older than yesterday etc

I'm getting a phone call
but it's nothing just a sales call

I'm older than yesterday
but what about tomorrow
tomorrow tomorrow
may not come
Track Name: Object Constancy
It's morning it's morning
and I"m alive I'm alive
the birds are singing like they always did
another day has arrived

it's morning it's morning
and I"m ok
the people have to go to work
they almost hit me
in their cars
they go so fast

It's morning it's morning
and I'm ok
she's getting up to yes I know
I saw her Tuesday
it's always good
the Lord is giving me
Object Constancy
with her
not to be a drag
not to be a drag

It's morning it's morning
and I'm alive
I love you so
I love you so
Track Name: Hell
If we're on our way through hell
well that's all right
you can never tell
what's just around the corner
and if we're going into the night
that's all right
this is not our fight

and you know you know you know
the flesh is weak and easily fooled
don't get fooled

we're on our way we're on our way
and we won't stop
no matter what goes down
or what the people say
and this love is stronger than the grave
more beautiful than diamonds
on the ocean waves
this love, older than the moon
sweeter than a symphony
or a flash of lightening in a night in June
Track Name: Songbird
for you there'll be no more crying
for you the sun will be shining
cuz I feel when I am with you
it's all right
I know it's right

to you I would give the world
to you I'll never be cold
cuz I feel when I am with you
it's all right
I know it's right

and the songbird keeps on singing like he knows the score
and I love you I love you I love you
like never before

and I wish you all the love in the world
but darling most of all
I wish it from myself

and the songbird keeps on singing like she knows the score
and I love you I love you I love you
like never before
like never before
Track Name: Everything Is Gone
everything is gone still I'm holding on all day and all night through the darkness I
and I will be there for you as long as I can yes I will be there till the sky goes black and I lose my way forever
into the night
take it all away you can't take my dream call me anything you can't take my love away go and die on me just another thing you can't stop the wind you can't stop the sky
till it's time you're just another dying person it's not the way I feel or the way I want it just the way it is can't do nothing about it ah
into the night into the fight into tomorrow
everything is gone still I'm holding on I'm alive I'm alive
Track Name: Walking In The Air
it helps me to go out walking in the air
then I can remember he's always there
everthing just piles up and I get disturbed
I don't need some friendly advice
just a little time to straighten out my mind
and I'll be all right again

that's what I need I'll be right back
it helps me to know when I"m under attack
everything just piles up
it's a normal reaction
don't make it more than it is
let it be hold on you'll be all right again

I want to be your friend until the end
but it's not easy whoa
I want to be your friend until the end
cuz it's wonderful

it's not a sleighride it's a war
we will win it we will for sure
but in every battle you taste the bitter defeat
don't make it more than it is
hold on we'll be all right again

I want to be your friend until the end etc
Track Name: Dog Days And Crazy People
Dog days long days no end in sight
no say no way to stop all the fighting
time is a steady force swallowing us all
how did we get so far away
from the way we used to be

take this little piece and make it a mountain
no one else can save the world
we are the fools breaking all the rules

how could it ever go some other way
children of the sea
walking on quicksand
fading to nothing
beautiful dreamers will never die
