Track Name: A lullaby
I feel I can tell you anything at all
You’re real- I feel- no walls to crawl
I love your face and aura

I’ll be your priest and I won’t touch at all
Your sanctity- my will won’t fault
I love your face and aura

I love your face and aura
I love your face and aura

I’ll hold you close while you shed your tears
We’ve all felt lost in erasing years
Tonight- I’ll hold tight for always
I love your face and aura
Track Name: Roses
I think the roses I gave you are on their last lap
I think to throw them out would cause you to reflect and think back
On all the memories that we shared

Won’t you come with me to that old special place
Where we hid to escape from our fears- from all love
From all love

Already I am having doubts you did not think this one out
As abrupt as it may seem it did not take long for me
To see the petals falling down

Won’t you comfort me with that old special smile
Read to me- let me rest my head on you for a while

I know I can‘t rely on anybody else
I know I can’t rely on anybody else

To comfort me when my world is falling
Thankfully I have thorns to guard my heart

I think the roses I gave you are on their last lap
I think to throw them out would cause you to reflect and think back
On all the memories that we shared

Won’t you come with me to that old special place
Where we hid to escape from our fears- from all love
From all love- from all love
Track Name: Down & Out
If you wake up tomorrow and you feel you’ve fallen down
You look all around you and see no one’s gonna help you out
You look in the mirror and it’s half past three
In Carolina, you would be here with me
But you’re down and out, you’re down and out

If you wake up tomorrow and you still feel free from sin
You better count all your stones cause I’m sure that you threw one of them
You won’t look in the mirror, afraid what you’ll see
In Carolina, you would not be with me
Cause you’re down and out, you’re down and out

There’s no use talking about it baby
There’s no use talking about it baby

If you wake up tomorrow and the beat won’t pull you through
If you look at your life, twenty eight, and still don’t know what to do
You can pick up your life and head for the city
In Carolina, you will never be free
Cause you’re down and out, you’re down and out

There’s no use talking about it baby
There’s no use talking about it baby
Track Name: Locked Door
If I was caught in a fire- could I rely on you?
Would you help to see me through?

If I have one more drink tonight then I won’t make it though
Just tell me what to do-and I will

I can tell the pain is real and I’ve lost all sense of
Feeling you anymore
Wait- it’s a locked door

If I was causing a fire- could I rely on you?
Would you help to see me through?
Track Name: Torn in Two
I don’t believe you’re telling me everything
Come out clean- don’t lie to me- I can’t believe
I’m not gonna give or sell myself upon this
I only want what’s owed to me- some redress

I look you in the eyes I see your smiling lines
The jokes on me cause I can see through all your lies

I’m not playing your games
I’m not going insane
I used to give you my heart
But your lies ripped it apart

So speak to me in a voice I’ll believe
You owe me this much –it’s true
I never would’ve held it from you like you did me
Now I can’t believe one word you say
All of my trust has been washed away
To think that I held you in these arms
I’m torn- torn- torn
You tore me in two- you tore me in two

So speak to me in a voice I’ll believe
You owe me this much –it’s true
I never would’ve held it from you like you did me
Now I can’t believe one word you say
All of my trust has been washed away
To think that I held you in these arms
Track Name: Where are you tonight?
Where are you tonight? My heartstrings don’t feel tight
And I’m not sure you have the best intent for me
Where are you tonight? I long for you to hold me close
And I don’t want to die or be burned alive
I hate to show that I cannot go on because I’m done

Just wait ‘til morning I’ll be fine
Ignore the warning, warning signs
I’ll be in mourning
I don’t want to die or be burned alive

Where are you tonight? Speak softly and kiss me when you arrive
I fear I’ll have no memory you were here
Where are you tonight? Should I leave on the hallway light
To guide you to me?
A ship lost at sea
Alone and close to shore
I soon will be moored to what I abhor

Just wait ‘til morning I’ll be fine
Ignore the warning, warning signs
I’ll be in mourning
I don’t want to die or be burned alive
Track Name: Acres of Diamonds
There’d be acres of diamonds if you let me plow your field
Why you got to hold me down? I’ve got children to feed
I’ll cause no trouble, I’ll keep in line
There’s room for two up there
So you just best step aside
Oh I never thought it’d take so long

I’ve come here by railroad, I’ve come here in time
I’ve come here through sweat and tears, I’ve come here in binds
Have you ever beholden such a curious sight?
For to crawl on my hands and knees, I would prefer to die
Oh I never knew it’d take so long
Oh I have come to depose your throne

How many are with us? How many belong?
We’ve watched how you stole our land, stole our trust and our laws
We’ll seek our rights granted in common sense and plain sight
You’ll never get away with this
Track Name: Stand Here Silent
For I’ve been thinking about leaving for a year about now
But I never had the courage, never had a doubt
That you could prove me wrong, it was the right thing to do
But what makes me stand here silent
What made me follow you

Cause you’ve got the heart
Cause you’ve got the hardest part

If you’re thinking it’s painful like a gun or a knife
Then you never really knew me, never knew that
I would take a loss on my soul to avoid hurting you
But what makes me stand here silent
What made me follow you

Cause you’ve got the heart
Cause you’ve got the hardest part

What took me by surprise was the look in your eyes
What took me by surprise is that you won’t even hold me
You won’t even say goodbye
Cause you’ve got the heart
Cause you’ve got the hardest part
Track Name: Under a breath of fresh air
I can’t wait ‘til I hold you in my arms once again
Don’t delay cause I can’t remember how long it’s been
Since I held you-its the only thing that’s been on my mind
What can I do? When I’m with you-just just ease my mind

I can’t wait ‘til you come and I can see you again
Yesterday I was lonesome and the mood I was in
Wasn’t right-spent the whole night looking up at the sky
It wasn’t there- where’s the west star when I need it’s glare?

I was waiting for you to deny me the light
But for me the west star resides in your eyes
And the air changes in the room when you are there
But you can’t see the burden that’s lifted off of me
Under a breath of fresh air
Under a breath of fresh air

I don’t know why I look for reasons not to give you a sign
I despair-when I’m with you I don’t have a care

I was waiting for you to deny me the light
But for me the west star resides in your eyes
And the air changes in the room when you are there
But you can’t see the burden that’s lifted off of me
Under a breath of fresh air
Under a breath of fresh air
Track Name: 2nd Time Conversation
If you pick up the plow when you’d rather pick up the knife
You’ve got to finish the line- it’s a lesson for life
Now who’s gonna change- you or me?

You can alter the odds- paint it in a brand new light
You can ignore old scares and jump headfirst into life
But who’s gonna change between you and me?
But who’s gonna change between you and me?

You can forget old dreams while waking up next to me
If and when you feel my touch- it makes you warm and you glow so much
If and when you touch my hand- it reconfigures your doubts and fears
Then why have to change- why have to change at all?

Did you get what you want? More than you were hoping for?
Did it come to you last night? Did you have one foot out the door?
Now who’s gonna change- you or me?
Now who’s gonna change- you or me?

You can forget old dreams while waking up next to me
If and when you feel my touch- it makes you warm and you glow so much
If and when you touch my hand- it reconfigures your doubts and fears
Then why have to change- why have to change at all?
Track Name: William Bigsbee
I worked hard all my life and sometimes barely got through
You never think of the role you played- you only think about you
But you always get by- you laugh and you cry
You think of all of the ones you’ve loved and your last goodbye

But don’t you take it from me
Look to your neighbor and you will see

Hey there- why don’t you take my hand?
I can’t stand the way I want to stand at all
I put up a fight but I lost tonight and I’m losing the war
But I don’t seek forgiveness when I fall

I was waiting for you and I knew you’d come through
Though you’ve not seen my face- this is you when you age
So be mindful that you take a lesson or two
From an old man who can’t see- a broken back and I’m weak

But don’t you turn out like me
Afraid and not making ends meet

Hey there- why don’t you take my hand?
Cause I can’t stand the way I want to stand at all
Hey there- why don’t you take my hand?
Cause I can’t stand the way I want to stand at all
I put up a fight but I lost tonight and I’m losing the war
But I don’t seek forgiveness when I fall
And I’m losing the war but I don’t seek forgiveness when I fall
