Track Name: Wounded Man
WOUNDED MAN
It was a wounded man that wounded me
He said I knew from the start that you didn't have the heart
So now I'll just let ya be, Shoulda Letchya Be.

It was a grounded man that grounded me
He said Love is in the sky if you only have the eyes to see
Then you'd be free, then you'd be free

One is lost until you found someone is lost until you found that...

It was an honest man who told me that he lied for sure
It was an honest man who told me he had lied for sure
He said I was on the side that never had to try
You know that I had wanted more, I wanted more, I wanted more...

One is lost until you found some

Someday soon the stars will eat the sun and we'll all die

BLEED THE SKY!!!!!

One is lost until you found some

It was a wounded man that wounded me
Track Name: Cold Summer's Night
Cold Summer's Night

Cold summer's night as we walk along
We feel the wind but we ignore it's song
I can't see how she can't see that
The beating of her heart belongs to me
Belongs to me

The earth's my heart and the sky's my dreams
The wind's my breath and my veins are streams
And in her eyes a deep blue sea that
Washes over me and sets me free
Sets me free
Track Name: For All We Know
FOR ALL WE KNOW

All I know is empty pockets are never full

we live and learn with each penny that we earn

my hands are warm in yours so there's no reason for wanting more

we're never poor.

for all we know, we'll never know which way to go until we're shown.

We'll never know which way is up until we're shown which way to look.

for all the lights will guide us home.

We're getting older by the minute and no one told her why her heart

feels young but she's just been around to long to love again to love again.

but her hands are warm in mine so there's no reason for wanting more and that's for sure.

for all we know, we'll never know which way to go until we're shown.

We'll never know which way is up until we're shown which way to look.

for all the lights will guide us home.

going nowhere takes a lot out of ya 'til you get there

hold on darling we will be there when we're not much older

growing older takes a bigger man a stronger soldier.

There's no reason, there's no reason, there's no reason for wanting more...

for all we know, we'll never know which way to go until we're shown.

We'll never know which way is up until we're shown which way to look.

for all the lights will guide us home.
Track Name: Sifting
Sifting
Sifting softly slowly through the summer, through the summer
I can't seem to shake the sweat of the summer from the summer
I can feel the dirt behind my ears and on my brow
Sifting softly slowly through the summer, through the summer
Oooooooooooooooooooo
Sleeping safely soundly through the summer, through the summer
I can't seem to shake myself from the slumber of the summer
I can see the dreams behind my eyes and in my head
Sleeping safely soundly through the summer, through the summer

Gray Septembers on its way with a forecast for a foggy rain
Lose your summers to the past with younger years and listless laughs
I would like to be the one who thinks it's going to last

Sifting softly slowly through the summer, through the summer
I can't seem to shake myself from the slumber of the summer
I can see the trees behind my dreams and in the clouds
Sifting softly slowly through the summer, through the summer

I would like to say that I am lost
I can't say that I am lost
Track Name: Primrose Garden
PRIMROSE GARDEN
Spinning round and round and round this dusty earth to which I bound

I feel it in my heart, I feel it in my bones.

Is it love or is it like a golden touch from a golden knife

I feel it is my soul spring fever taking hold, spring fever taking hold.

Like a fire in the early morning, my heart gives warning I'm falling in love.

lies a path through a primrose garden, on earth is heaven if I stumble on.

Spinning round and round and round this dusty earth to which I'm bound

I hold it in my hands, a gardener I am.

Of love and life and earth's delights

the beauty bursts and blooms with might

i feel it in my soul, the springtime's all i know

i feel it in my soul, spring fever, spring fever...

like a fire in the early morning, my heart gives warning i'm falling in love.

lies a path through a primrose garden on earth is heaven if i stumble on...

i'll stumble on.....


spinning round and round and round the dusty earth to which i'm bound

i feel it in my heart, i feel it in my toes

is it love, or is it light, i'll take a sip, it will be alright

from that which gardens grow, the yellow blossoms know the primrose path i'll go.

like a fire in the early morning, my heart gives warning i'm falling in love.

lies a path through a primrose garden on earth is heaven if i stumble on...
Track Name: Coyote
Coyote
Out on the prairie the lone coyote sings
Peace to the night his melody brings
The moon reveals with all it's glow (x2)
Everything but what only a spirit should know

and I believe that all of the people have the power to see what
The moon reveals with all it's glow (x2)
Everything but what only a spirit should know

All of the whiskey and all of the wine
The beer and the spirits the hardest moonshine
Won't let me forget no I'll never forget your not mine

Out on the desert the lone coyote wails
Peace to the night on which the moon sails and I
Sleep beneath it's starry glow (x2)
And dream of the things that only a spirit should know

and I believe that all of the people have the desire to be
asleep beneath it's starry glow (x2)
And dream of the things that only a spirit should know

All of the whiskey and all of the wine
The beer and the spirits the hardest moonshine
All of the whiskey and all of the wine, the beer and the spirits the hardest moonshine
Won't let me forget no I'll never forget your not mine...
Track Name: Our Father
OUR FATHER
On the road away from home ; I can feel the thunder
Rest beneath my fathers stone ; I can feel the thunder
Birds fly south don't fear the cold ; I don't fear the thunder
Left before the leaves turn gold

Hitchin' down the road on a strangers tow ; I could be discovered
Travelin' the map no place to go ; I will rediscover
Our history's in the rivers flow ; It can be discovered
The only thing in life you need to know

We are the sons of our fathers land
We were left alone with just a gun in our hands
We are the sons of our fathers land
We were left alone to wash the blood from our hands

Can't stop the sky from bleeding blue ; There will be another
When the flowers breathe the morning dew ; They will eat each other
Left my life to come find you ; I could be your other
So we can do what lovers do

We are the sons of our fathers land
We were left alone with just a gun in our hands
We are the sons of our fathers land
We were left alone to wash the blood from our hands
Track Name: the Pleasants - Comtois Blues
The Comtois Blues
My baby's so warm
And my baby won't ever do me no harm
But when she goes and tells everyone I know
That I'm treating her so

But baby you should have known that I
was only playin' with you when I sent you home
When I sent you home, When I sent you home, When I sent you home

My eyes have seen the love from the light above
And my eyes know the difference between lies and love
But my eyes, my eyes, they do-they do decieve

You have got to believe

But baby you should have known that I
was only playin' with you when I sent you home
When I sent you home, When I sent you home, When I sent you home

Now my baby's love is the only love in this lovin' world that I have ever really loved to know
But when my baby says I have to choose between her love, our love, and my rock and roll I say

I don't want you darkening my doorstep darkening my doorstep no no no
I don't want you darkening my doorstep darkening my doorstep no no no
I don't want you darkening my doorstep darkening my doorstep no no no
I don't want you no more

But baby you should have known that I
was only playin' with you when I sent you home
Track Name: Streets Of Darkness
Hello streets of darkness

Where has the moonlight gone

Search the sky but it seems hopeless

Hung my head and rambled on

I am a man of the land

Lost at a sea that turned to sand

Leave me where i stand leave me where I stay

Alone Alone Alone

Independent walkin' man never much for talkin' man

Left for a summer stroll sleepin' 'neath the sheets of snow

I know I know you want to control but

You can't stop a man who's got no goals

Hello streets of darkness

Where has the the summer gone

Lost myself in the weeks of winter

Lord don't let the spring take long

I know I know you want to control
Track Name: Song For Nana
Song For Nana

O when I wake up on the lawn and I see the light of dawn
I am happy the night did not take me away with her
I am happy when I wake up on the lawn

O when I wake up on the field and my mind begins to yield
All those thoughts that make me think it's love that makes the sun glow
But the birds learned this song long ago

O when I wake up on the hill and I neglect to take my pill
I begin to think the man inside my head's not all there
If you know what I mean, Tangerine!

O when I wake up on the lawn and I see the light of dawn
I am happy the night did not take me away with her
I am happy when I wake up on the lawn
Track Name: the Pleasants - Adeline
Adeline

Adeline you were mine to destroy
Adeline you were mine to destroy
I take pills and I drink beer to have no pain and feel no fear
Adeline you were mine to destroy
I am blood and I am bone and my only wish is that you die alone
We're probably gonna have to revolt some time I said
We're probably gonna have to revolt some time
With our fists in the air our hearts will bleed in the ground

And we'll sing
Guns were meant to kill just like we were meant to die

If love replaced time and space we would never have to be late again Yes we would never have to be late again

Adeline you were mine to destroy
Track Name: the Pleasants - Ghost On The Street
GHOST ON THE STREET

On the edge of night, the waves cradle your weight (wait) for the golden shore
have you money for your freedom? from a rich man's war, for American dreaming
40 thieves they march the streets of this five-point city
that will feed your family
You're American, You're American now.

I feel it all around; I feel it all around;
the battle beats the sound; the marchers meet the ground

Ghost on the street, there's something going down I feel it all around
so darling you better wait for me (2x)

On the edge of night, you shift your weight (wait) for it.
Something you have found...
can be broken, can be stolen, can be smiling back and warming,
can be lost and losing ground, can be small, can be all around,
You're American, You're American now.

I feel it in my feet; I feel it in my knees; the battle sounds the beat;
they're marching down for keeps

Ghost on the street, there's something going down I feel it all around
so darling you better wait for me (2x)
ooh..........................................................................
ooh....................................................................................

Ghost on the street, there's something going down
The history is bound to the land all around
Ghost on the street your the fire and the heat for the furnace underneath
you're the heartbeat of these streets
Ghost on the street, there's something going down I feel it all around
so darling you better wait for me (2x)
