Wounded Man 04:30
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

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

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.

Sifting 02:54
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

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...

Coyote 04:02
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...

Our Father 03:09
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

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

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

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

Adeline 03:26
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

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)
